Just a quick an easy chapter to make up for yesterday’s late release!
Oh, how I like Teruki ;_;
Asterisks (**) = I’m not too sure what’s happening here.
High School – Sixteenth Part
Teruki’s large hands overlap my cheeks. They move as if tracing the tears dripping from my eyes, ticklish in their maneuver. I shrug my shoulders. I’m taken back by a classroom’s noisy lesson.
Yuu: “…I’m sorry! You should return to class, Teruki!** I’m okay…”
Teruki: “…Yeah. I want to go back to class together with Yuu.”
Teruki: ” Mizuki and Suzaku are going to perform well. Hm? What is this document?”
Yuu: “…Ahh…This morning sensei asked me for a favor…I must…deliver this to the Student Council office…” As I’m grasping the papers while looking at them, I recall the image of Hiroto and Hasumyouji-senpai. “…Teruki.”
Teruki: “…Hm? What is it?”
Yuu: “I have a favor to ask…will you please listen to my request?”
Teruki: “…? No problem. What do you need me to do?”
Yuu: “Can you sit down?”
I sit with Teruki in the corridor, holding him in my embrace. I rise from my lap, placing my chin on Teruki’s shoulder and rubbing my cheeks on it. As it is, I extract my force and lean on him.
Teruki: “…Yuu-kun are you a greatly pampered child?”
In response to Teruki’s mischievous voice, I whisper into his ear.
Yuu: “…Please, won’t you listen? Just spoil me a little. Then, I’ll be okay…”
I will be watching Hiroto and Hasumyouji-senpai quietly. At any rate, the pain in my heart will surely weather away, spilling over like sand.
Yuu: “…I’m sorry, Teruki. Even friends would feel grossed out having a man do this to them…Okay! I’m all better now…”
Trying to break free from Teruki’s grasp, I notice that our faces are very close. Any closer and our lips would touch. Beautiful emerald orbs capture me, carrying an intensity from who knows where.** It could have lasted just a moment; it could have lasted several years.
Teruki laughs and pinches my nose.
Teruki: “Your nose is turning red…”
Yuu: “That’s because Teruki’s pinching it.”
Teruki: “We should really be going. Suzaku’s getting nervous waiting for us.”**
We stand up and start walking down the hallway.
Teruki: “At any rate, we should head for the infirmary. It’s almost time for the first period to end. We can return by the second period.”
Yuu: “…Uu. I’m sorry. I’m making Teruki skip with me.”
Teruki: “Well then. Are you ready to answer Suzaku’s barrage of questions?”
As usual, it’s Teruki who walks besides me. For that I am very happy and thankful. I watch as Teruki laughs.
Yuu: “…Teruki, thank you.”
Teruki: “…Oh…Oh hm.” He flushes a bit red, concentrating on me. And then, he strokes my head sloppily.
Teruki: “…What the heck…Just now that was a surprise attack…Well, let’s go to class.”
Now, wasn’t that just cute?
