I'm sorry it took so long for me to post, but I dodn't know how to end this, but it's finally here. Please R&R. Please enjoy!
I woke up to the warm feeling of the sun light hitting my bare back. I opened my eyes slowly, adjusting them to the brightness of the room. I smiled when I saw him next to me. Suzaku. I've misd him for all these years, and now I finally have him back. It was my mistake leaving, but I couldn't even think about asking him something so selfish like running away with me. I just couldn't, so instead I ran away from him. Every day I thought about him, even after I met Shirley and made her my girlfriend. I know it wasn't fair for her to be with someone who is already in love with someone else, but I was desperate to get back. I know I'm going to have to tell her, and she's going to hate me, but at the time it seemed like a good plan. I sighed deeply as I thought about what I was going to tell my family.
Suzaku stirred next to me. He snuggled closer to my body and I stroked his hair until he slowly opened his eyes. I smiled down at him and I noticed that lovely light pink blush that colored his cheeks. He's so cute. I kissed him, it was merely a peck on the lips, I know he doesn't like to kiss in the morning because he thinks he has bad breath, but I don't care about that, although I learnt not to do so.
"Good morning Suzaku." I whispered in his ear and kissed his cheek. I felt his smile and he hugged me closer to him by my waist.
"Good morning." His answer was muffled by the sheets and my chest.
The rest of the morning we spent it mostly in bed, kissing, hugging, cuddling, and then we got up and made some breakfast. We ate slowly, in peace, none of us wanted to think about what was coming.
Suddenly my phone vibrated. I knew who it was, my mother. I sighed and looked at Suzaku, he was eyeing me suspiciously. I need to talk to my family now, but the problem is, will Suzaku come with me and be there with me to support me?
"I'll go." He said suddenly, surprising me.
"I'll go with you to talk to your family. I won't leave your side, so don't worry okay?" He said as he gave me a bright smile. I forgot how easy was for Suzaku to read me and tell when I was worried about something. I nodded my head and we finished our breakfast talking about everything and nothing.
I took yet another deep breath. I don't know how many times I have done it since we arrived to my mother's house, but it was not working at all. Suzaku was squeezing my hand and smiling at me, he reassured me over and over that no matter what happens he'll stay by my side. I smiled at him and was grateful for his words; they comforted me and calmed me down. When I was sure I wasn't going to return my breakfast by my nauseas, I slowly got out of the car and made my way to the other side of it to open Suzaku's door. He took my hand in his and we walked to the door. Before we even made it up the stairs my mother was already opening the door. She looked mad, furious even.
"Lelouch Vi Britannia! Where the hell were you last night and why didn't you come home?!" My mother yelled at me and when she saw mine and Suzaku's hands intertwined, she stopped her outburst. Slowly, she eyed us up and down. "Oh." Was all she managed to say.
"Are grandfather and Shirley home? I'd like to tell you something." I said as my mother nodded and stepped aside to let us enter the house. We followed her in silence to the dining room where my grandfather was sitting at the head of the table and Shirley was pacing around. When Suzaku saw her he immediately let go of my hand and gave me an apologetic look, I smiled at him and nodded, making him know that I understood why he did it.
Shirley saw me and gasped. "Where have you been Lelouch? I was so worried." She said as she walked towards me and hugged me, when she saw Suzaku she let go of me and smiled at him. "Who is this Lelouch?" Shirley asked giving me a weird look. There was something in her eyes, but I couldn't quite out my finger in it.
"Oh, Shirley this is Suzaku, a childhood friend. Suzaku this is Shirley… my fiancée." I didn't know whether I should or shouldn't have said that, but my grandfather seemed happy about it. I took yet another deep breath; I felt Suzaku's hand on my back rubbing little circles when no one was looking. Okay Lelouch, this is it, you have to tell them. "Umm Shirley, can I have a word with you? In private?" She nodded and followed me to the kitchen, before closing the swinging door I saw Suzaku smiling at me.
"Look Shirley, here's the thing." I began. "Suzaku and I-"
"I know Lelouch." Shirley said, cutting me mid-sentence. My mouth hung open and I'm sure I looked like an idiot. Have I misheard her? Did she really said that?
"What?" I asked her, just in case I did misheard.
"I know what you and Suzaku are Lelouch, and you don't have to worry about me."
"But… but how do you know?"
She smiled at me and sat down in the kitchen island, looking at the floor as she spoke. "Last night when you never came back your mother and I began to talk, she told me about this guy named Suzaku. She told me that he was your best friend and that you two have been together since you were born." She smiled again and looked up at my face. "She told me that you were in love with him and that you dated for two years until your graduation day, she told me everything about your grandfather's wish and his threats and his condition for you to return, I immediately knew that you never loved me, but you saw a way of coming back home in me.
I didn't knew you were going to your friend's house last night and I was really worried, but when I saw you coming in with him I knew that you were okay, because you were with him." She was silent for a few seconds and I was about to apologize but she began to talk again. "I know you still love him Lelouch. I saw the look on your face when you came in and the way you looked at him when you introduced us. You've never looked at me that way, and I can see you love him very much and that you are happy with him."
I sighed and sat down next to her, taking her hand in mine. "I'm so sorry Shirley. I should have never used you that way, and I'm very sorry if I made you feel unwanted or unloved. You have to know that I do love you, I love you so much, but maybe not the way you thought or expected me to do." I told her with an apologetic look, I feel like shit for doing this to her, she is such a nice girl.
She moved her hand away from mine and stoked my cheek, never losing her loving smile. "You have nothing to apologize for Lelouch. We don't chose who we fall in love with, it simply happens, and sometimes it's not meant to be, and I understand that, so stop apologizing and clear things up with your family. Okay?"
I nodded at her and she gave me a soft kiss on the lips before walking out of the kitchen. I was speechless by the way Shirley reacted, I was expecting anger and tears, but instead she was all smiles, she understood and she didn't hate me. I was thankful for her; I don't think I'll ever be grateful enough.
I think Suzaku began to worry since I wasn't coming out of the kitchen because he walked in and made his way towards me. He was looking at the door in amazement. Maybe Shirley said something to him. She probably did.
"Are you okay?" He asked as he stroked my cheek. I looked into his eyes and knew everything was going to be okay. I nodded and kissed him quickly before taking his hand and walking out of the kitchen and back to the dining room. Shirley was still there, and she smiled at me and gave me a nod, encouraging me to speak up. And I did.
Things went surprisingly well after telling Shirley. She helped me talk to my grandfather and she even got to his soft side. My mother never agreed on my grandfather's decision of forcing me into something I never wanted, so she was happy when he agreed not to disown me for not taking after the company and not marring Shirley, although he wasn't very pleased that I "ruined my future" to stay with a guy, but he didn't understand that that guy is the man I love and always will. We had lunch with my family but my grandfather was very quiet, which didn't surprise me; it was going to take some time for him to get used to seeing me with another man.
After having lunch and thanking my mother and apologizing again to Shirley, Suzaku and I went back to his apartment. We were both emotionally drained from all the stress of confronting my family and going public with our relationship, so we decided to just watch a movie and cuddle in the couch.
We were halfway through the movie when I felt my eyes getting heavier and heavier. I felt Suzaku shaking with soft laughter.
"What?" I asked him amused by him.
"Nothing." He said as he hugged me closer to him. "I'm glad everything is over and we are back together now. I've missed you so much."
"Oh Suzaku, I've missed you too, you have no idea. I'm so sorry I made you went through hell because of me. I'll make it up to you by never leaving your side again." I assured him as I took his hand in mine.
"Promise?" He looked up at me and made the cutest pout.
"Cross my heart and hope to die." I promised as I marked a cross over my heart.
"You can't break your promise now Lelouch." Suzaku warned me, making me laugh.
"I won't." I was about to fall asleep when I heard Suzaku talking again.
"I love you Lelouch." He whispered in my ear and kissed my lips.
"I love you too Suzaku, so much."
