Yusei... Yusei... Yusei...!
My heart thumps as our hands touch by accident. It was a common occurrence when we were both working on computers next to each other because he is right handed and I am left handed. Sometimes I think I was born left handed just for these little moments.
"That keeps happening," Yusei chuckles next to me, slipping me a quick smirk.
"Yeah..." I reply back with a nervous laugh.
Yet he doesn't move his position to fix the problem.
And neither do I.
We stay up all night working, neither of us wanting to be the one to call it quits. But the night ends -as it always does- with Yusei falling asleep in his chair. A few times he has landed face down on his keyboard. Not tonight though.
I smile at his peaceful position and save my work. Then I lean over to save Yusei's. I feel his soft breath on the nape of my neck and for a minute I am frozen solid, goosebumps flaring up all over my body.
I don't want to move. I want to feel his warm, soft breath on my neck for the rest of my days. But I know that can't happen. So I finally finish saving and pull away, turning both of our computers off. And then it's time for the part of the night that I cherish the most.
I gently scoop Yusei's smaller body into my arms. I can't believe my pounding heart doesn't wake him up. And slowly I carry him up the stairs and into his room.
Just as I set him down on his bed, he wakes up and hands onto the sleeve of my shirt.
"Did I fall asleep again?" he whispers drowsily.
"Yeah," I reply softly. He's still clinging to my shirt and I'm glad it's too dark for him to see my blushing face.
"I keep ruining our fun," he finally says.
"Everyone has to sleep, you know," I reassure him.
"Would you sleep with me?"
My heart stops. I don't even breathe.
Did... Did Yusei just...?
"It's lonely up here and I have nightmares often. We should have a sleepover."
I almost deflate. I don't know what I was expecting.
"Sure, if you want."
Yusei lets go of me and scoots over to make room for me on the bed. I awkwardly get in under the covers. We talk softly for a while before Yusei stops answering and I see he's asleep again. I smile and close my eyes.
I wake up abruptly to the small sound of a door opening. I sit up a bit but feel something around me.I look down and see that Yusei has wrapped his arms around me in his sleep. I then look into the doorway to see Jack standing with his mouth open.
"I KNEW IT!" he hisses just loud enough for me to hear but not wake Yusei. My face turns bright red and I shake my head but Jack is already gone. Probably to get Crow.
I don't want to wake Yusei so I simply lay back down.
I wonder what Yusei will do when he wakes up.
