Six Weeks Later
Eiri Yuki stood up and left the table with a few copies of his newest book; In Somebody's Company. There was a large poster of the book's cover behind him; two men, in an embrace. Excited fans left with their brand new copies waiting to have them signed by the author.
Hiro Nakano sat in his apartment tuning his guitar. He had taken a break from music; hadn't played in while. Hiro was having some trouble with the 'A' string. For some reason, he just couldn't get it to tune right.
K sat in the break room, polishing his gun.
Ryuichi was running around in circles with his favorite companion. He pulled the pink rabbit off and said, "Come on Mr. Bear, we have to go see our best friend."
Shuichi was in the park; the park where he and Yuki first met. He sat on one of the benches and looked out at everything. He had just been released from the hospital, but didn't tell anyone. They all would've made a fanfare about it. Not good for someone who had recently woken from a coma.
He felt weak and stiff, but he didn't care, he was alive. The last thing he remembered was a really bright light and loud sound, then waking up in a hospital three weeks later.
But it wasn't blackness. Throughout that period, he had dreamed. Of friends and family, of lovers. Well, lover. He dreamed of Eiri saying things he only heard him say in his dreams. It made him sad that he only said those things to him in his imagination.
There was a rustle in the bushes that caught his attention; a pink rabbit had his head sticking out. Shuichi sighed, "Hi Ryuichi."
"SHUICHI!" Ryuichi jumped out of the bushes and tackled his pink haired friend; it knocked the wind out of him as they lay on the ground.
"You're alive!" Ryuichi said with a smile so huge it made him close his eyes.
"For now," Shuichi spoke breathlessly.
"Oh," Ryuichi helped his friend up. "Sorry."
"It's okay," Shuichi nodded as he tried to regain his breath. He sat down because it put too much pressure on his body. "How'd you know I was here?"
"Because the park is a special place." He pulled his rabbit back up on his shoulder and smiled with his eyes closed again. "Thanks for giving Mr. Bear back."
Shuichi smiled. "He belongs with you." The two of them sat there for a few minutes not saying anything. It was the quietest the two of them had ever been.
Finally, Ryuichi spoke up. "I lied Shuichi." He looked at his idol. "Someone told me that this was a special place to you and that I might find you there."
"Who?" even though he knew who.
A blonde writer walked down the path in the park.
"I'll see you later Shuichi," and Ryuichi took off happily running.
Shuichi looked away from Yuki, but he watched him in his peripherals. He was wearing a dark maroon jacket that went down to his knees, with a dark blue shirt and black pants. Why did he have to look so sexy?
Yuki sat on the other end of the bench, one leg on top of the other, but he didn't say anything. The silence lasted for five minutes. It was comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time.
Finally, Yuki broke the silence.
"I was supposed to pick you up later tonight."
After a pause, he said, "I know, I didn't want to." A longer pause.
"I've heard coma patients can hear."
"Maybe," Shuichi still didn't look at him. "I did see you."
"So, where do we stand?"
Shuichi stood up, but his legs gave and he fell, into Eiri's arms. Shuichi looked into his eyes.
"I thought I was going to lose you." Eiri's voice broke. "I can't. I need you Shuichi. Now." He pressed his lips gently onto Shuichi's, then broke, but Shuichi raised his hand and pushed Eiri's head closer to his and forced him to kiss him harder, with more ferocity and passion.
When they broke, they looked at each other, both of them were crying. Eiri spoke first. "You didn't answer my question."
Shuichi closed his eyes and sighed. "I think you already know the answer to it." And pulled Eiri's face closer to his and kissed him, like he would never kiss him again.
