Chung pulled Elsword's hips closer, closing the distance and capturing his lips. The red-head made an appreciative humming sound, pulling back to kiss the blonde's neck. "You're getting better at this."
"I have someone to thank for that." Elsword replied, smirking against Chung's skin as he rolled his hips. It had been a few months since the incident, and Chung was almost sixteen, and he still wouldn't say, "I love you."
"Want to take this any farther, Shorty?" he asked, grinning slightly at Elsword's pout. "I'm not that short, Dumb Blonde."
"Yeah, wanna prove it?" Chung smirked, pulling the older teen closer and resting a hand on his stomach. Elsword caught his hand and laced their fingers, staring into Chung's eyes. "Only if you say you love me."
"What? What does that have to do with being short?" The blonde asked, raising an eyebrow. Elsword pouted again, pulling away from Chung's hold (or as far away as he could when he was sitting on the other teen's lap). "You know what I mean. Why don't you ever tell me? I mean, I say it to you all the time, even if it is a little half-hearted..."
"You really do that? Elsword, I'm hurt." Chung said, glancing to the side. "Chung. Tell me. Why don't you say it?"
"Because I... You know I do, I say it with actions because they speak louder than words." He replied calmly, but inside, his heart was hammering against his chest. He couldn't tell Elsword, he couldn't admit it, he'd... He'd get him killed. It might have been a curse, or maybe fate, but everyone he said, "I love you." to had died, or come close to it. He just couldn't risk it, not with Elsword, not with anyone else. "Dude, please, that's so corny. Why do you really like me, it's not just for sex, is it?"
"What? No! Of course not! If you really want to know, I think you have a fiery personalty, that captures the hearts of anyone who encounters it. And it shows in your eyes, I like the fire I see in them." Chung started. Elsword was already beat red before he even continued. "I also like your determination, in fact, I admire it. You never give up, and you're always an optimist. Plus, you can be kind when you need to, and your blushing face is really cute." And then, he leaned in next to Elsword's ear and whispered, "And you're downright sexy when you're riled up and angry. It takes everything to not pin you down and screw you when you're sparring."
He accompanied the statement by a light squeeze to Elsword's thigh, running his other hand down to the small of the other teens back. The red-head glanced to the side in a completely tsundere manner, his face as red as his hair. "Then why don't you ever say anything to me? Please, just once, tell me you love me so I know I'm not the only one in this relationship."
Chung was silent, pushing Elsword away to slide him off his lap as he stood. "I just can't tell you."
"What? Why?" The red-head asked, grabbing Chung's arm. His brow crinkled slightly as he replied, "I just can't tell you. I could..."
"You could what? You might as well call this over if you don't give me a legit reason." Elsword stated, his brow crinkling as well. "Tell me. You can't tell me? Or you won't tell me?"
"... Can't, won't, both! I don't want..." The blonde looked to the side, holding his arm slightly. "I don't want to tell you."
Elsword's brow creased, and he hissed angrily, standing to match Chung's height. "What kind of lame ass excuse is that?! It's not like you can't say it, there has to be a reason! If you don't tell me within the next ten seconds, this is... This is over!"
Chung paused, staring with wide eyes at Elsword's chest. "No, wait, I-..."
"Chung. No exceptions. Forget it." Elsword muttered, and turned on his heel to leave. Chung gasped quietly, jumping forward to grab Elsword's wrist. "W-wait-"
"What!" Elsword snarled, turning around to glare at Chung. The blonde was startled into silence for a moment, before sighing and saying, "I'll tell you the reason I can't tell you. I want to, Elsword, I really do, but I... I'm afraid. I'm afraid that if I tell you, I'll lose you, and I... I don't want to say it for that reason."
"What's possibly so scary you can't say anything? Seriously, I-" Elsword started, when Chung cut him off with, "You could die."
"Well... I'll tell you the some of the instances where this has happened. It might be a curse, or it could be fate, but if I deeply love someone and I tell them I do, they get mortally wounded, or worse. See, when I was a little kid, I told my mom, 'I love you,' every single day. It was the first thing I had learned to say, and I was so happy that I told her as often as I could. When I was six, she became bedridden with a terminal blood disease, and died the next year during the spring. My father tried to commit suicide two years later after I had told him, 'I love you.'" He explained, sitting back down and adjusting Elsword in his lap. The red-head frowned, but didn't complain. "Well it could have just been a coincidence. If I were your father, I might have tried to kill myself from all the pressure of leading a village, a war, and taking care of a motherless child. It's hard."
Chung wrinkled his nose, asking, "How would you know? The other time this happened, me and Aisha were walking home from a sparring match, I told her that I loved her like a sister. If it wasn't for Raven and Rena being across the street at the time, she would have been hit by one of the carriages."
"You almost got Aisha killed?! How?!" Elsword exclaimed, jumping up from Chung's lap. He sighed quietly, a guilty look on his face. "I don't know. I didn't mean for it to happen, I didn't want her to almost get hit..."
"... Chung, why didn't you tell any of us? We might have been able to help you." Elsword asked, his eyes calming as he sat back down next to his Deadly Chaser. Chung rested an arm on his shoulder as he leaned on him, sighing. "I was afraid. I'm not brave like you are, I can't just say what I want to."
"Hn, you seem to whenever I'm on top." Elsword mumbled, and he could feel Chung's cheeks flush. "H-hey, it just comes out, I can't control what I say when it feels that good-"
"You doofus. Stop kidding yourself, you know you can say what you want to, you just don't have the courage." The red-head snickered, kissing his neck. "Cowardly lion."
Chung was silent for a long while, and they just sat there quietly, in the orange glare of the setting sun. Chung thought about what had happened over the years, and what could happened if he told Elsword. He wanted to, he really did, but he didn't want to chance loosing him. He loved him too much for that.
"Hey, Elsword." He finally said, watching the teen as his eyes snapped open quickly and he stared up at him. "Yeah-"
Chung's kiss was soft and sweet, and he only nommed Elsword's lip as he pulled away. He cupped his cheek lightly and stared into his eyes, whispering, "I love you."
Elsword stared at him for a long while. He blinked once, then twice, then jumped up and pointed at the blonde, his face flushing red. "Y-y-you just said-!"
"I know." Chung replied quietly, looking sheepishly up at Elsword. "I... I don't want to lose you, and I love you enough to tell you, but I don't want you to get hurt."
Elsword smiled widely, his eyes sparkling in the light. "Say it again, say it again!"
"... You're getting way to excited over this..." Chung murmured, glancing around the room, but Elsword was too overjoyed to care. He did a little victory dance, before turning to Chung with this look. "What?"
He rested a hand behind him, brushing his hair out of his face, and then cupped his cheek as he leaned down and kissed him quietly. Chung was only surprised for a second, leaning into the kiss and draping his arms across the red-head's shoulders. As he pulled away, he rested his forehead on Chung's, whispering, "I love you. I love you so much...!"
The girls and Raven watched from outside the door, Aisha holding her mouth closed to keep from squealing. Rena watched, a tad bit of a frown on her face, but she was happy nonetheless. "Rena, are you alright? You don't seem to approve of this relationship."
"I was just thinking... What's Aisha going to do? And what about you? I mean, come on, they're together, I've got Raven... Unless you two started acting all lovey-dovey, there's no one for you.
Aisha turned with a smile on her face and a hand on her hip. She smirked, saying, "Oh, silly little Rena. I have someone already."
Rena gapped at her. "You do? How long?!"
"Feita. I met this guy, named Allegro, and he was just so sweet to me. So we talked, and got to know each other, and then... Well, bam, just like that." She blushed slightly, twirling her hair on a finger. "I sent him a letter last night, I hope he replies..."
Even Eve was surprised. Aisha had a- Since when? Why hadn't she told anyone?
"That's- That's so cute! Aisha, you sweet little girl, I love you~!"
Rena tackled the Witch, pushing her over. Raven was a little late to catch them, and they crashed to the floor, Rena hugging Aisha. The purple haired girl blinked, before glancing back at Chung and Elsword, and blushed.
Elsword pulled away from his lip-lock with Chung, pulling his hand away from his chest. Chung stared sidelong at the two blushing girls on the floor, and slowly moved his hand away from the inside of Elsword's thigh. The red-head was holding both his shirt, and Chung's behind the Deadly Chaser's head, so it was pretty obvious what they were going to do, with the way Elsword straddled Chung's hips.
There was a long silence.
"... This seems very awkward." Eve finally stated, then proceeded to turn sideways and walk down the hallway. Raven stared between her and Aisha and Rena, before picking the two up and escorting them down the hallway with hands on their lower backs. Elsword stared after them, before Chung kissed his neck, mumbling, "Who's getting the door?"
"... Who needs the door closed?" He asked, rolling his hips with a smirk.
Okay, next time, It's either going to be a het pairing or yuri :/ I should probably go write some Aisha Elsword stuff next, but idk. :/:/:/:/:/:/ And I don't even know where I was going with this, but I might do something with Chung's "curse" later. Also, if you read DW's Transform the MAX comic, it's like, AllegroxAisha is totally canon XD So is RenaxLento, according to WS's job advance XD
