Chapter 1

Chapter 1 - 5 day vacation!

The group (excluding Mikorin) are taking a trip to a famous hot spring! Though Nozaki set it up and is obviously going to use this trip as a manga reference they all agree anyway. The only reason Mikorin can't come is because he caught on to his plan before it was too late. Taking place after the finale and the spring festival this is going to be one heck of a ride! Enjoy! |I do not own Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun or any references in this story to other animes.|

"Nozaki come on, we're going to be late!" Sakura and Nozaki are standing in his apartment with base in hand. Nozaki swore he left something and is rummaging around his cluttered desk for something.

"FOUND IT! Oh man thought I left it at the festival or something!" Holding up a small notebook that is a one of a kind. It's his manga idea notebook that he puts all of his travels and events in so he can reference them later to write his stories. 'No… you are not taking work on this trip! I don't care if that was the original idea anyway you will not ruin it for us all." Looking down a bit before continuing. "Plus I want to spend more time with you… Nozaki-kun not Manga-ka." Blushing a bit before bringing her head back up.

"Huh? Oh well… I guess eh you did say something about that recently." Blushing a bit himself and remembering what had happened on the jungle gym. A slightly peeved and blushing Sakura starts walking across the tiny apartment. "So just in case I am taking this!" Pulling the notebook out of his hand and throwing it into his room. "And this!" Grabbing his hand hesitantly at first but then more confident and powerful.

Feeling the shock in his hand when her little hand grabs his literally makes his heart jump out of his chest. Looking over at his room then to Sakura weighing the decision between his work and his love he decides. "Alright fine, let's go. I guess I need to learn how you guys spend spare time." Smiling a bit at a gleaming Sakura,

"Gah, you guys finally got here! I thought you would have missed the train!" Seo is standing with her hands on her hips looking at the two with a worried and mischievous look. "Were you two busy doing something else?" Both blushing and look away from each other then back to Seo and yelling at the same time. "No, why would you think that!" Then look away from each other as quickly as begun. Sakura puffs up her cheeks. "Nozaki wanted to bring his manga idea notebook along but I made him not, so yes I guess we were busy doing something, but nothing like that!"

Waka poking his head up over Seo's shoulder. "Something going on with you guys?" Immediately Seo turns around and pinches Waka on the cheek. "Nothing, nothing at all. Come on grab the stuff I can see the train." Listening to her orders he picks up both their bags. Hori-senpai and Kashima already have their bags in hand and are bickering about something. Right as the train pulls in Kashima grabs his luggage and picks him up princess style while carrying him onto the train. All the while he is flailing his arms.

"Wooh, I can't wait to get there! 5 days of fun and relaxation away from home!" Waka is looking out the window with his nose pressed on the glass. At first he was doing it for fun but then Seo pushed him into the glass with an loud "OOF, uhhh Seo-senpai… you're squi-" "Yes I know Waka, I am doing it on purpose!" Cutting him off mid-sentence. After letting him go the train rolls onto a bridge. All of the train seats are in boxes of four. Two sets of two facing in towards each other. In one set is Waka, Seo, Kashima, and Hori. In the other set of seats across the aisle and alone is Nozaki and Sakura.

"So Nozaki, what hotel are we staying at? Where is it? Does it have large rooms? How are we dividing up the rooms? What do you think of my hair today! I'm excited!" Nozaki looking a bit interested and dazed by a super hyper Sakura. Trying his hardest not to make this situation into a manga scene he is having a hard time at that, but none the less he is trying which he hopes Sakura notices. "Eh… slow down and I'll answer them. First off we are staying at the Kissuiso hot spring inn. It's on the beach front and relatively large so we won't have an issue with space. As for dividing up the rooms? Ehh think we'll do that when we get there. I might take a nap" Sakura smiling at how he could catch all of her questions no matter how fast she talked. Smiling at bit then nodding. "Take a nap, let your mind rest a bit." Reclining in his chair he nods off to sleep.

"Wha-!? Are you trying to say something about them!" A very surprised look on Waka's face when Kashima looks over at Nozaki and Sakura with a dreamy face and blurts. "They would have cute children..." With a straight face that only crazy people can have in that situation.

"What did you mean by that!? Are you sure they even like a eachother?" Still with the same surprised look. "Hey, dummy keep it down you're too loud and might wake up Nozaki." Nodding over at a sleeping Nozaki while Sakura watches his gentle face with great interest.

"Just look at her. I mean she told me she confessed to him at the festival and he did kind of say yes in his own manga writer way." Kashima said while turning away from the two. Sitting back in her seat and looking over she didn't even notice Hori-Senpai had fallen asleep.

"Is everyone going to fall asleep on this train ride? I know it's long but wow..." Taking a great interest in the sleeping face of Hori she stops talking to the other two even though they are still there.

"Hey Waka, do you want to take a nap? I kinda do so just stay still for a while will ya?" "Eh?" Seo closes her eyes and rests her head on Waka's shoulder while nodding off. "Wait, Seo-senpai don't just fall asleep on me!"

"I can do what I please Waka, now shush or I will silence you, and I would hate to harm your beautiful face." With a sheepish and slightly perverted smile on her face she nods yet again and falls asleep on his shoulder. Shrugging his own shoulders. "Ah what the heck, we got time." Taking his own head and slowly putting it on top of Seo's but with hesitation due to his heart want to burst out of his chest.

Back on the other said of the aisle Sakura sees the whole other side sleeping on each other with Seo and Waka's heads linked like puzzle pieces, and Hori-senpai's head on the glass while Kashima pulled up the armrests and put her head in his lap.

Puffing her cheeks slightly and whispering. "Everyone has someone to sleep on but me..." right then Nozaki cracks open an eye and whispers. "Don't tell anyone and you can sleep on my shoulder." Cracking a small smile.

"Wha!?" Jumping a bit in her seat and her heart rate skyrocketing. 'I mean… surely you don't mean that! E- I- Me- hahahaha!" Jittering a little. Right then Nozaki's big hand cups a side of her head and pulls her into his shoulder to let her take a nap.

"Shhhh, just sleep don't worry. I'm here for you." Yet again cracking a slightly smaller smile that makes Sakura's heart jump a bit before she settles and falls asleep on his shoulder quickly to take as much time as possible.

So? Tell me… I think that was OK. I really like how I have them progress a bit and only when their sleeping on the train. Tell me what you think! I kinda like this story, and don't worry, I will go generally slow with the fan fiction. I will be continuing the LOK fan fiction but this one just really caught my interest. Thanks for reading and, enjoy!
