Kame slowly adjusted his eyes to his surroundings taking awhile to see where he was; wanting to move but something was stopping him from doing so, once he turned to face the object that was stopping him, Right at that moment kame’s world stood still. He felt his heart beat faster than normal at the arm that was curled around his waist and with the older boy’s face so close him he didn’t want to breathe because he was afraid to wake the other up with his own breath. He could see that perfect messy hair, the perfect sleeping face of his neighbour, the boy that he had secretly being in love with for the whole of his high school year. He looked so peaceful right now; he could feel warm puffs of air on his skin showing that the latter was dead to the world, he just smiled at the unconsciously boy in front of him. When kame felt his body moved on its own accord closer to that sleeping face to give a peck on the boy’s nose, making Jin stir in his sleep as kame heard the boy mumble out his name making that arm clasp tighter around him and bring him closer making his heart stop once again
‘He’s dreaming about me?’ kame thought, a tiny smirk graced his lips before looking around he realised he and Jin were in the school sickbay, when he remembered his nerves got the best of him during class and then…
Kame started blushing non-stop at that memory of Jin carrying him, so he wasn’t dreaming, the other was really carrying him then? Feeling his cheeks heat up at the thought of those strong arms around him carrying, he shook his head at that thought with his movement causing him to shake Jin awake up from his sleepy slumber making kame freeze for the third time. He watched as the older boy open his sleepy unfocused expression staring at him before the latter moved closer to adjust his vision. While kame was screaming ‘oh god’ in his head blushing a high school girl at the older boy being too close. Once his eyes regained focus onto the figure in his arms he gazed at him for a long time, before remembering everything that had happened. Kame couldn’t look at the other in the eyes anymore. When a hearing a word he didn't wan to hear from the older boy
“Liar…”with that said kame’s heart broke into a millions from hearing that, he didn’t want to hear anymore words from the boy’s mouth so he instantly pushed the boy with all his might causing Jin fall out of the sickbay bed. Kame stumbled onto his feet at once before running out the door; Jin didn’t have a chance to respond at that situation
“Kazu! Wait...” Jin started but it was too late, Jin sunk onto the floor as he lied there staring at the ceiling for a while remembering the younger boy’s words beforehand
I love you so much…Jin, that it’s so… painful…
Jin couldn’t help but smile sadly at those words “I probably do to and probably always have…” Jin said quietly as he placed his left arm on his forehead as he closed his eyes for a moment before being brought out abruptly by hands clapping loudly as they echoed the small room. Jin lifted himself up from the bed to see who it was, when his anger started to boil inside of him at that face.
“What the hell are you doing here?” Jin growled as Ryo just smirked “I came to congratulate you…”Ryo beamed at his friend who was leaning against the wall
“I never knew you had such a beautiful looking neighbour, and to think I never believed pi that you had one, I can understand why you are in love with him…”Ryo smirked remembering the younger boy’s reaction from this morning, hearing that Jin lifted himself off the bed to grab his friend by the collar pushing harder against the wall, but Jin’s hand was instantly pushed away by Ryo
“You don’t have anything to be angry at me about, my job here in done” Ryo smiling at his friend as Jin looked at him with a confused expression
“Huh?” was the only words that left Jin’s mouth, as Ryo just smirked at that
“You’ve finally realised your feelings towards him, right?” Ryo replied
“Now I’ll be getting back to my beautiful hime, and you should be getting back to your beautiful turtle that is already out of the school building…” Ryo stated
“He’s pretty fast for a turtle” Ryo added as soon as that statement had sunk into Jin’s head, Ryo felt Jin fly passed him.
“Idiot…”Ryo said as he then turned to the figure behind the door “So, what now…?” Ryo said as the figure stepped out to reveal himself
“Nothing, now it’s up to the akame pair to do the rest…”Ueda said as Ryo was instant right by the other’s side, smirking
“Now about that date; pick you up tomorrow at 10?” Ryo said seductively into ueda’s ear who just turned away in disgust “I never promised you anything… midget…”Ueda said snobbishly before walking down the corridor to hide that he was flustering in his cheeks
“Hime-chan!!!” Ryo started to whine like a child, when a shoe came flying his way hitting Ryo in the face making the boy groan at the sudden injury from that leather shoe hitting him
“before you date me you have to grow up a lot more” ueda hissed before continuing to walk away as Ryo just smiled at that watching that ass sway from side to side in his view, licking his lips
“I have grown up more than you think my beautiful hime-chan…” Ryo smirked at that thought remembering kame’s words; he couldn’t wait for that time.
“Ahh! Jin-kun!!” Kazuya mother greeted the man at the house with a big smile as Ayumi and Shizuka were peaking to see who it was
“I know this is going to crazy even because it’s only 11:30am in the morning, but did kazuya come home a few times ago?” Jin asked nervously as Kazuya’s mother shook her head
“It everything okay, with my baby! What happened? ”kazuya’s mother asked as Jin shook his head “It’s okay, he’s not in any trouble” Jin reassured kazuya’s mother before he saw the little girl running over to kazuya’s mother.
“Grandma who is this tall person? And why is he asking where chu chu nii-chan is?” Ayumi pouted angrily at Jin before turning back to grandma wanting an answer. Jin crouched down front of the little girl with a smile
“Hi, there, I’m your chu chu nii-chan’s special friend Jin…”As Ayumi looked at him at him weirdly
“Special friend?” Ayumi tilted her head to the side “Do you mean like the beautiful nee-chan, said who was in our house instead of my uncle chu chu nii-chan last time?” Ayumi responded to Jin as he frown at hearing that
“Beautiful nee-chan? Is she talking about kame? She must be talking about him? or does kame really have a girlfriend like his uncle said” Jin thought as the little girl looked at Jin cutely before tilting her head again, trying to read the boy in front of her, her grandma touched her on the shoulder as Ayumi looked up instantly
“This is your uncle’s childhood friend, they have been friends for a long time just like you and Hiro” kazuya’s mother said to her granddaughter as Ayumi nodded understanding her before turning back to Jin, with a cute pout
“Uncle chu chu nii-chan has been really sad yesterday and he didn’t want to play with me at all” Ayumi whined “Can you make uncle happy just like how happy hiro-chi-kun makes me when I’m sad?” Ayumi said as Jin just smiled before nodded his head
“I will…”Jin said when the little girl's glared returned “promise?” with that angry expression somewhat surprised him, as he just smirked nervously before nodding again.
“I promise…”Jin promised but the little girl’s glare didn’t leave Jin’s face
“You shouldn’t be like that Ayumi” her mother hushed her daughter’s attitude as Ayumi turned towards her mother before running behind her, Shizuka turned to face Jin with an apologetic bow
“I’m so sorry about that, she’s just really attached to her uncle …”Shizuka said as Jin just shook his head with a smile “It’s okay, you have a very cute daughter…”Jin said politely as Shizuka just smiled at that comment as Ayumi giggled
“Mummy, the tall man just called me cute, just like hiro-chi-kun always tells me when he sees me every day…” Ayumi happily as Shizuka patted her daughter on the head before turning back to him with a genuine smile on her face
“Jin is it? I’m Shizuka, kazuya’s step sister” Shizuka said introducing herself to Jin bowing to him as he bowed back with a smile
“You’re looking for Kazuya right?” Shizuka said as Jin just nodded “Yeah, you don’t happen to know where he is do you?” Jin asked politely “it’s the next street one down the road, there’s house there, it’s mostly where he likes to hide away from the world” Shizuka said happily
“Thank you…”Jin said before bowing to kame’s sister and mother and then running off.
“Do you think he’ll kill us if he found out that we told Jin where he is?” her mother asked as Shizuka smiled before turning to her mother with a smile her lips with Ayumi mimicking her mother as Shizuka chuckled at that action
“It’s Jin, he’d probably thank us…”Shizuka said proudly with a grin on face
“Uncle Chu chu nii needs his special friend just like Hiro-chi-kun and me!!!!…”Ayumi responded cutely to her mother smiling brightly, as her grandma who giggled at that statement from her granddaughter before turning her eyes back to the retrieving boy with a smile
“Good luck, Jin–kun! And don’t forget to come by for dinner sometime!!!” kazuya’s mother shouted out happily as Jin turned around with a smile showing an okay sign before running a little faster.
Kazuya just sighed loudly in the corner of the cuppy house with his legs tucked into his chest with his chin leaning on his knees> He was still wearing the wig and the girl’s school uniform with an saddened expression and his beautiful make uped features as those sudden words from his childhood friend’s mouth haunting him.
It was like a needle that went straight through his heart, he’s parents finding out was one dilemma but Jin finding out was even more nerve wrecking now, the truth was out, he didn’t want to face the older boy now, he couldn’t. Hearing those words from Jin’s mouth killed him, he knew it would come sooner or later and he knew the other would be mad at him now and running away from the other had probably made it worst.
Hugging his knees closer to his chest as his tears fighting to fall; while he closed them “I’m sorry…” kame mumbled into his knees “So you should be you damn brat…”kame heard a voice, as he quickly opened his eyes to the source, there he was his neighbour right front of him with their faces only inches apart
“J-j-ji-nn-n…”kame stuttered, as Jin only studied kame’s scared expression for a long time “D-dd-i-id y-yy-ou f-ff-oll-w-w-w m-m-mee h-heere…” Jin only tilted his head, before moving closer to his stuttering neighbour, who was really confused and blushing at the same time each time moved closer to him.
“I would be lying like you if I said no…”Jin responded, hearing kame pushed Jin away making Jin fall to the ground in front him hard as he closed and the locked the door to the cuppy house, hiding from the older boy deep inside
“w-ww-why d—i dd-you f-f-oll-ow m-m-me- h-hhh-e-rr-e!” Kame stuttered “g-g-o a-waa-y!” kame said in a croakily voice, as Jin smirked at that.
“No! not until you tell me what I want to hear?” Jin shouted “there’s nothing for you hear!” kame answered back almost immediately
“Yes there is!” Jin argued back straight after
“No, there isn’t!”
“Yes there is!”
“No there isn’t!”
No! There isn’t Akanishi now get lost!” Kame screamed back, there was a moment of silence before a sad chuckle was heard from the outside
“You never call me Akanishi…”kame heard the older boy’s from the outside, he sounded so sad, hearing that he felt so guilty and he didn’t know what to do apologise
“I’m sorry” kame started, it’s true, that had never called the older boy by his family name ever since he had learnt the other’s first name. But right now, didn’t seem right because he lied to other and Jin was angry at him.
“I have no right to call you by your first name now?” kame mumbled his words “because, I know you are angry to with me, for lying to you, I know you….”Kame sadly hearing an angry grunt from the outside
“Your right! I am angry at you, how could you?” Jin snapped out in irritation as kame didn’t say a word
“I can’t believe you manipulated me like that! You made think that you were…. Ewww…”Jin angrily as kame felt the tears run down his cheeks hearing that Jin was disgusted with him, but somehow he was expecting an answer like that because Jin was straight.
“I’m sorry…” kame croakily “I just wanted you to…” kame mumbled that went unheard because he was interrupted Jin once again
“Do you have any idea how I felt, when I saw that bastard of a friend of my mine holding and kissing my property?” Jin snapped angrily as kame just nodded at that when he suddenly lifted his head up for a moment wondering if he had heard that correctly ‘Bastard of a friend?’ ‘My property’ he thought Jin had listened to the other’s ranting ‘Was Jin talking about Ryo? Not about him lying’
“He’s going to pay dearly for touching you like that, even if it was a plan to make me show my feelings for you….”kame heard, once hearing that kame unlocked the cuppy house as he came out facing an angry Jin pouting on the floor with his hand fisting the grass so hard he could see the soil being uprooted looking at the other in confusion
“I don’t understand…”kame said in a soft voice tilting his head in that instant of a moment he saw Jin rise from where he was sitting and walking over to him in quick steps making his heart stop at that sudden reaction wanting to runaway but he was frozen on that spot not being able to move so he closed his eyes tightly waiting for the impact to come from the older boy. Instead he felt himself being pulled into a warm embrace of older boy’s arms, with that he opened his eyes in shock. He didn’t try to struggle out of that grip, because the feeling was making him lightheaded all of a sudden being wrapped into those arms once again, as a fresh batch of tears started to roll down his already damp cheeks.
“Jin…”kame said in a soft, he felt the older boy tighten his grip tighten around him he felt so relaxed in those arms so no matter how tight they held him.
“Someone malicious like that doesn’t deserve someone as a sweet as you...” Kame heard the older boy say as he felt those arms tightened even more making him more speechless to the sudden affection. Before kame could speak a word of protest from the older boy’s behaviour, a side of affection that he had not experienced with him before, he felt Jin’s lips against his own making his eyes fly open at that kiss. As soon as those lips touch his kame was instantly to push the other away. Jin only looked into the man’s eyes licking his lips savouring the strawberry lip gloss that he only tasted for a second, never in his he’s thought he craved for other another boy’s lips over a girls. But then again this was kazu; he had ever considered his neighbour a boy in this first place. Kame saw that unreadable expression written over all his neighbour’s face, it was so new to him he didn’t understand, so overwhelming, he could feel his heart drumming like crazy ready to explode because of having the older boy only inches away from him
“Jin.. I …don’t…”Kame started but the older boy interrupted him “Then I will make you understand…”with that said Jin closed the distance between them again as he captured those lips once more but this time kame didn’t push the older boy away. The feeling of those lips on his own were indescrible; so sweet for the first time. It wasn’t like that kiss they shared that day when the older had dragged him out of school; this time it held so much more emotion that he could feel his legs wanting to give in, but as soon as they were about to he felt those strong arms enclose around his waist. Jin broke the kiss as he looked into Kame’s eyes, seeing that dazed face which only brought a smile to Jin.
At that moment all kame could think about was he dreaming? Did those lips belong to Jin? Why did all his insecurities appear all of a sudden, right at that very moment, just like his dreams Jin was holding him in his arms his and the older boy disappeared into thin air? He didn’t want the other to disappear again with image in head of Jin disappearing his mind he quickly reacted. Before Jin could speak another word, he felt kame snuggle into his chest clenching his hands into his school shirt between his fingers into the older boy’s school shirt. Jin jerked at that gesture but smiled as he didn’t hesitate to encircle his arms around smaller boy bring him closer to the warmth. Everytime kame remembered those dreams he held onto Jin’s waist a little tighter. Jin could feel the water leaking through his shirt.
“Kazu…”Jin whispered sweetly into the ear before he could hear hiccups as Jin chuckled at that action knowing that the other was crying. His neighbour was always known for crying like a baby no matter what age, the other was always crying but he didn’t mind, just as long as he was the one comforting him, his neighbour could cry all he wanted.
“You’re really here right?...” Jin heard kame say softly biting his lips nervously, as other another hiccup left from his mouth, followed by a sniffle “you’re not going to disappear just like my dreams, right?” kame said with his voice started to quiver
“If this is a dream, can you not disappear, please Jin…please” as Kame sobbed fisting the shirt tighter.
“I can’t take it anymore, Jin…”kame cried harder as Jin heard as his expression softened at the other’s words feeling like the stupidest person the planet, but he felt some happiness from hearing that before securing his arms around that slender body showing that he wasn’t dreaming that he was really here
“You’re not dreaming kazu, I’m really here and I’m not going to disappear kazu, I promise …”Jin said comforting his fragile neighbour locked securely in his arms
“I waited for 7 years, for you to love me Jin” kame sobbed “I’m sorry. I really hated myself, each time I would think of you more than a friend. I knew you didn’t swing that but I still loved you anyway. I missed how we use to walk to school together in elementary school hand in hand, and how you protected me. I tried to tell myself that you were just a best friend. But when we got into different high schools I couldn’t wait to get home because you I knew everytime you’d be there no matter late you were I would wait for your messages on our windows every day and night ”Kame confessed through trembling words
“Before I even knew it, you started drifting away from me, our bond through notebook message stopped from that day I started to miss everything about you; so much that I have a nervous breakdown in front of tat-chan, koki and maru at azabu high last year. Tat-chan made it worst by telling me to give up on you when he scouted you out...” Kame explained as he felt Jin chuckle from that.
“That idiot, he really hated me that much?” Jin smirked as a kame just pouted through teary eyes “don’t call my best friend an idiot, it’s just that tat-chan was a brother to me in azabu high, you should be grateful to him otherwise I wouldn’t be here…”Kame mumbled before sniffing from his stuffy nose
“Tat-chan is my saviour, without him I didn’t think I would have survived in that school for as long as I did. You know, I would have been raped by half of azabu high school on the first day if it wasn’t for tat-chan “Kame reasoned as kame slowly lifted his head where he was presented with a large pout on the older boy’s face as that brought a huge grin to kame’s face seeing that, which made kame snuggle closer to the crook of the older boy’s neck.
“But you’ll always be my number one Jinjin, tat-chan and ryo-san are no match for you…” kame said cutely as Jin felt some victory hearingthose words. Kame closed his eyes to the feeling of those lips against his forehead
“Only you…”Kame whispered “You’re the only one, that I will love no one else…”Jin just smiled at that, hearing those from the younger boy he wasn’t sure how to handle such strong love. Kame had loved him more 7 years which was nothing compared to his love for the younger boy’s love for him. He wanted to love kame as much as kame loved him, he wanted to love kame whole-heartedly and love kame unconditionally so because of that he decided to ask the other wait a little longer. With that he caressed the man’s back lovingly enjoying the warmth and slender boy in his arms
“I can’t say I love you yet, but what I can say is that I want you by my side Kazu and I will not leave you until I love you as much as you love me…” Jin said as kame listened to the older boy words with more tears started to fall down his already wet cheeks and Jin’s already wet shirt. Somehow those words made him feel satisfied and holding promise holding a promise to him. He had waited for the older boy for so long without the other him next to him but if he had to wait some more this time with the other always there beside him then he would embrace no matter what.
“I’m sorry….”was the only words that kame could form at that moment “I’m sorry for being so troublesome to you…” Jin just smiled at that as he shook his head
“I’m the one who should be sorry, I’m being selfish for not loving you the way you love me and yet I want to keep you by my side…”Jin said before prying the smaller boy off him to look into those eyes that were looking at him so lovingly, he brushed his fingers over that soft skin of the younger boy’s cheek
“You were always there for me, back then when I needed you the most, so now, it’s time for me to repay that favour to always be there for you no matter what” with that said Jin leaned kissed into those lips once again and by that time Kame had welcomed that kiss knowing that this was real for the first time in high school life, like a fairy-tale dream that he had wanted for 7 years, Jin was here, forever, his one true love, Jin Akanishi.
Jin smiled once breaking the kiss when he felt kick in the back, as Jin moaned from the sudden pain with a foot on Jin’s back pushing him harder to the ground
“I didn’t waste my time on you to have a one-sided feelings for my kame!!” Ueda growled, stomping a little harder onto his back “Tat-chan!” Kame whined, with a pout
“You’re killing my Jinjin!” kame cried trying to pull his best friend off his soon to be boyfriend who was moaning from the pain of the other's foot pressing his face to the ground really hard ‘how on earth did ryo put up with this rough treatment, he must have really love ueda a lot to be treated like this’ Jin thought but then if this is what he had to put up with for kame then so be it, for kame he’ll try his best.
