This is a song fic from Ritsuka's perspective comprised of his thoughts about that special man in his life.

Disclaimer: I don't own Loveless or Brett Dennen's song "By and By"

The digital clock read 1:15am. Of course, again it was past midnight and he hadn't been able to sleep. His mind was on that mysterious man who whispered those mystical words.

"I love you Ritsuka"…

He pulled the sheet from over his face and took a deep breath.

*How it is I feel for you, it's hard for me to say…

This "life" deal was so difficult however… it was his life, at least that's what his therapist and Soubi said. This was his life…

How?

Now there were spell battles and pain those brought, which wasn't much compared to other sorts.

*I don't know if I'd survive without a friend like you in my life…

Yes Soubi was his friend this Ritsuka.

Those words the man spoke so clearly, so easily brought such confusion into his mind. He was intelligent, teachers assured him with the "A" grades he achieved, but it wasn't about that. This sort of understanding was not directed by aptitude.

*I'll tell you that I, I love you by and by…

The phone in his hand vibrated with a text message. He opened it quickly and saw the usual words spread across the screen: "I love you".

"I love you Ritsuka", he heard spoken aloud a moment later.

Turning to the opened window, he saw the man of his thoughts. "What have I told you Ritsuka? If you want to hear my voice all you need to do is call."
