Shadows & Roses


3rd POV

Kyoya quickly grabbed his things stuffing them into his bag haphazardly. He was seething. He had no clue how coconut had gotten into the cake. Reaching into his bag he pulled out his phone and quickly found the number that he needed. Hitting call it rang twice before picking up.


"Yuuichi this is Kyoya." Kyoya said.

"Kyo! It's been a long time since we spoke little brother. How is everything?" Kyoya's oldest brother replied.

"I wish it was better. There is a girl named Misora Nishimura headed your way who is suffering from Anaphylactic shock because of her allergy to coconut. I would appreciate it if you saw to her." he said.

"I will see what I can do when she comes in. I've never heard you take such an interest in someone before. Is she someone special?" Yuuichi asked.

"No. She's just the fiancé of a friend. He'll be with her. Mitsukuni Haninozuka." Kyoya replied quickly.

"Oh he's in that club with you correct?" he asked.

"Indeed." Kyoya nodded.

"Well I'll see to her when she gets here. Don't worry little brother." Yuuichi replied.

"Thank you." Kyoya replied.

"I guess I'll see you soon?" he asked.

"As soon as I can get there." Kyoya said.

"Alright see you soon." Yuuichi said and hung up.

With a sigh Kyoya joined his friends and headed out of the Music Room.

"How did Sora not know the coconut was in the cake?" Haruhi asked as they drove toward the hospital, all sitting in the back of Tamaki's family's car.

"I had some of that cake and it didn't taste very much like coconut but I did taste it. The icing was so thick you could miss it." Hikaru replied.

"There shouldn't have been any coconut in the first place! I specifically told them that I wanted no coconut in any of the cakes! I know every food allergy all of our clients have and I am sure to try to avoid foods involving them at all costs!" Kyoya seethed.

"I'm sure it was just a mistake Sempai." Kaoru replied.

"A mistake that shouldn't have happened." Kyoya seethed.

"I'm sure she'll be fine. She's headed to one of the best hospitals around." Tamaki said.

"Doesn't your brother work at the hospital you sent her to Sempai?" Haruhi asked.

"He does. I made a call and asked that he personally look over her. She'll have the best treatment." he replied.

The group arrived at the hospital and walked up to the desk.

"My name is Kyoya Otori and my friends and I are here to see about our friend who came in by ambulance. Misora Nishimura." Kyoya said taking the lead.

"Hello Mr. Otori. Your friend arrived some time ago and is being examined at the moment. However If you'll have a seat in the waiting room someone will be with you soon." the nurse said.

Kyoya nodded and they walked to the waiting room. They all took seats around the room. Tamaki and Mori sat down by a mother who had a small baby who soon became enthralled with the cooing that Tamaki showered on it. The twins were in a corner away from everyone thumbing through commoner magazines while Haruhi and Kyoya found the last few seats available but which were next to an elderly woman who seemed to have a cold.

"How are you holding up Semapi?" Haruhi asked turning to face Kyoya.

"I'm fine. Sora is in the best possible hands. I made a call and my eldest brother has agreed to take on her case. I have no doubt in my mind that she will make a full recovery." Kyoya replied.

"You don't have to act like you don't care about her Semapi. I know you still do." Haruhi said.

"I never said I didn't care about her. She is a friend."

Haruhi looked up at Kyoya, "You care about her more than a friend. You're not close to your brothers but you made a call just so that she could get the best treatment available. And I saw the tears in your eyes when you were talking to Sora. It's okay to admit that you care about her. She still cares about you."

Kyoya sighed, "There were no tears in my eyes and I merely called my brother because it was my fault in the first place that the coconut was even there. I should've checked everything more thoroughly. If her parents found out it could get messy. They could sue or any number of things. That is the last thing I need to deal with." Kyoya replied.

Haruhi looked at Kyoya before shaking her head, "Whatever you say Semapi."

Five minutes later Yuuichi walked into the room.

"How is she Dr. Otori?" Tamaki asked as all six of them stood up and hurried over.

"She's doing fine and resting comfortably now. We've managed to stop the anaphylaxis but because of the severity of her reaction we're keeping her overnight for observation and we're asking that someone keep an eye on her for the next few days." Yuuichi replied.

"Her parents are in France right now. There is no way they'll be able to catch a flight tonight." Hikaru said.

"Your friend Mitsukuni mentioned that. He also mentioned the fact that he and his friend Takashi also had to leave on family business. He's currently sitting with Ms. Nishimura and asked me to ask all of you if any of you could take her in for a few days." Yuuichi asked.

"Well we're no good at taking care of people." Kaoru said.

"Just ourselves." Hikaru nodded.

"As Host Club King it's in my duty to look after the fragile maidens that frequent the Host Club. I shall take in Sora and tend to her whims." Tamaki replied swooning dramatically.

"Semapi I don't think you're the best choice either." Haruhi said and instantly Tamaki's swooning stopped.

"Haruhi! How can you say such a horrible thing to your father!?" Tamaki wailed.

"No offence Boss but you can hardly take of Antoinette and she's a dog." Hikaru replied.

"How do you expect to take care of a human?" Kaoru added.

"But…but…" Tamaki whimpered.

"Tamaki as…noble as your intentions are, I think as a fellow female that Haruhi would be the best choice for the task. In her weakened state I'm sure that there are tasks that Haruhi would be better suited to help with." Kyoya said looking at his friend.

"But what about the fact Haruhi's apartment is so small?" Hikaru asked.

"Yeah. There's hardly enough room for her and Ranka. It's so tiny and cramped." Kaoru added.

"I am right here you know." Haruhi said glaring at the twins.

"That's a simple fix. Haruhi will just have to stay at Sora's. I am sure that there is more than enough room for the both of them at the Nishimura Mansion. That is unless Haruhi objects that is." Kyoya replied.

"I'll do it. Sora's a friend and she needs help." Haruhi replied.

"Very well then. I'll inform Ms. Nishimura and Mr. Haninozuka. I'll also send a nurse to bring you in one by one to see her if you like." Yuuichi replied.

"That would be great. Thank you Dr. Otori." Tamaki said.

"Of course." Yuuichi replied and walked out.

"I guess I'd better tell Dad that I'm not going to be home for a few days." Haruhi said once he was gone.

"And the Music Room needs to be cleaned up. There's the broken china and we all left the cups and everything just sitting out." Kaoru replied.

"Very well. I will head back to the school and take stock of what needs to be done. You can join me after you've all visited Sora." Kyoya said.

"You're not going to visit Sora?" Hikaru asked.

"I'm afraid not. There is a lot to do. We lost a large profit today by closing less than an hour after we opened. I need to figure out the day's expenses and make sure that we're not so far into the red that we're doomed. I also need to make a few calls to that patisserie. They have a few things to answer for. Having someone die while visiting the Host Club is completely unacceptable. Please do give Sora my well wishes though." Kyoya said and with that left.

He had already texted one of his family's drivers and had a car waiting for him. Wordlessly he climbed into the back and sighed.

"Ouran please." he replied.

"Very well Mr. Otori." the driver said and they set off.

Kyoya reached over and hit a small switch near the door and a divider rose to close off the back. Only once it was up did Kyoya's shoulders relax and he let out a long breath.

Sora was going to be okay. It had been terrifying to see her collapse but he had kept his head the entire time. He knew that if he had relaxed even a moment he would've probably collapsed. However between the nerves and trying to keep up appearances he had completely drained himself.

Everything was going to be alright though. Sora was being taken care of by Yuuichi and when she left Haruhi would take over and he had every confidence in her.

Content with the fact that things would turn out for the best Kyoya let out one last sigh before sitting up and straightening his tie. It was going to be alright.
