"That's all for today, please remember to check out the assignments that I've uploaded online in the portal." The lecturer announced while tidying the papers on the table and put them into his briefcase. "I'll see you the day after."
The room was soon filled with the sound of the chair dragging against the floor as people started to pack up and exit the lecture room.
Ugh… The last lecture for today has ended. I stretched out my arms as I walk out of the room. I wondered if Aikawa is still in school, maybe we could go back together for today. I thought as I took out my phone and search for Aikawa's number and pressed the call button.
The phone rang for a while before a low deep voice answered. "Hello?"
"A-Ah, Aikawa," I stuttered a bit when I heard his voice.
"Nanao-san?" the deep voice replied. "Is anything the matter?"
"Eto… My class has ended for today. Dakara ano…I was thinking if your class has ended and we can go home together today…?" I hesitated, pausing for a few seconds in between the sentences.
Well, I am still not used to asking someone out like this.
"…I have already left school and heading to work," Aikawa apologized, "… I'm sorry Nanao-san,"
Work huh…"Oh. Well, it can't be helped, right? Never mind then. I'll see you tomorrow."
"…See you tomorrow."
Beep. I hung up the phone, feeling kind of disappointed as I headed my way to the car park into my car.
It has been three months since Aikawa and I started going out. He used to be a straight guy and had a girlfriend during his secondary school days, well, that was what I heard from his friends. It must be quite hard to adapt into this kind of relationships I assume, so I am just contented with him agreeing to be together with me. I tried to control myself from being selfish and asking too much from him, even though he stated that it is okay to be a little selfish to him.
Recently, Aikawa has been even busier than before for both weekdays and weekends. We also got different break time in school that we didn't have much time to spend together with each other.
He must be exhausted from both work and school. Which was why I stopped myself from disturbing him during his weekends off so that he can get some rest before going to school the next day.
Come to think of it, it had been 3 days where we never see each other, interacting only with texts and calls. Ugh, wished he was free… I... I missed him...
"Tadaima…" I said as I twisted open the door knob. Since the distance between my house and the university only takes up to at most 40 minutes ride, it's quite convenient for me to travel to and back from school.
"Ah! Okaerimasen, Mikado's Oniisan!" A familiar voice answered as a shadow appearing out from one of the room.
"Oh. Konichiwa, Aikawa-kun." I smiled towards the blonde-hair teenager.
His name is Aikawa Towa, the little brother of my lover Aikawa Kuon. Aikawa-kun has a rather innocent and naïve character, which is similar to his eldest brother, Aikawa Nagahisa, in terms of naïvety.
"You're here to 'Study' with Mikado?" I smiled slyly, purposely stressing on the word studying.
Aikawa-kun is currently going out with my younger brother, Shirahane Mikado. Even though he's in a relationship with a man, he's still very innocent about things people do with their partners during a relationship. His innocent expression and answers never fail to amuse me when I tried to flirt or tease him on sex-related topics. I pity Mikado sometimes when I saw him struggling with Aikawa-kun's innocence in their relationships.
"Ah, yes. Mikado is teaching me math today." Aikawa-kun replied, smiling radiantly, obviously not getting the hint in my sentence.
"Niisan, would you please stop teasing Towa?" A flat tone demanded.
Mikado appeared behind the blonde-hair teen, placing his hands on the shoulder in front of him. "You know he won't get your hint."
"Mikado!" Aikawa-kun turned his head to look at the person behind him, and then stared at him with a confused look. "Hint? What hint?"
I can't help but to giggle.
"It's nothing, Towa. Saa, let's get back to our revision." Mikado's voice turned softer and gentler when he spoke to Aikawa-kun. His voice turned flat again when he turned his head towards me. "Now if you'll excuse us, niisan…"
"Sure. Feel yourself at home, Aikawa-kun." I walked up towards him smirking, ignoring the glare my brother was giving me, "I'll blast my music in my room so I won't be able to hear anything, so…" I playfully touched his face at the side. "You can be as loud and noisy as you want with Mikado." I informed him, purposely pronouncing 'loud and noisy' slowly.
"Niisan!" Mikado shot me a 'say-again-and-I'll-kill-you murderous glare. I can see the black aura emitting from behind his back.
"Ei?! What's that supposed to mean?" the blonde hair teen flinched at both my actions and words and started scratching his head as if he was trying to solve a tough question.
"Towa, it's okay if you don't understand, you don't need to understand that." Mikado tried to calm him down.
I burst out laughing. Aikawa-kun's reactions never fail to amuse me. Looks like two of them still have a long way to go.
"I'll see you later then, Aikawa-kun." I gave a slight wave as I headed for my room.
Well, I shall have a bathe first I guess… I thought as I entered my room to put down my bag and phone on my bed. Gathered all the things I need, I exited the room and headed for the shower.
