" Damn, I'm late to practice! I'm sure Umi is going to give me a good spanking ." Nico kept imagining what kind of reward she'll receive because of her retardation.
Stopping in front of the door to the clubroom, Nico took a few breathe before bracing herself to whatever awaited at the side of the door.
She didn't know how she managed to get into the clubroom without a chop on the head but all she knew was that it's quiet, like she have stepped into a ghost town. Scratching her head, she scanned the room with an eye closed, she spotted a tomato-red haired figure slumping on the table.
She immediately recognized the person.
" Maki, you alright?" Nico walked closer to the said girl. When the younger girl didn't respond, Nico lowered herself to look at Maki and found out that the girl was sleeping. She's drop-dead gorgeous. Nico thought in her mind before noticing the flushed face and haggard breathing coming from the redhead.
"Maki, pull yourself together!" Nico lifted the younger girl up and worry was evident on her face. She brought the back of her hand to Maki's forehead and –"Wow, you're burning hot, scarlet princess!" The petite girl was about to leave to dampen her handkerchief when a hand grabbed her wrist to stop her at the process.
" Don't leave me alone, stay please." Maki begged with her pair of teary amethyst orbs staring tiredly at Nico's ruby eyes. Nico was planning to keep enjoying the beautiful scene exposed to her if it's not for the increasing warmth coming from Maki's hand. "For whatever sake, you're burning hard, we need to cool you down, I'm not going anywhere, I just want to get you a wet cloth so bear with it for a while, okay?" Nico said trying to look heartening.
With Nico's strong reassurance, Maki let go of the older girl's hand.
The raven haired girl searched her schoolbag for her handkerchief and grabbed her water bottle. Then, she poured some water on the cloth and folded it. She was placing the cloth on Maki's forehead when she noticed a pile of music sheets and some crumpled ones settling on the table. Nico frowned. She must be overworking until she got herself into this condition.
Nico stayed beside Maki for a few moments before standing up.
" Maki, let's get you home now." Coaxed Nico while shaking the redhead lightly without any force. She won't budge so Nico tried to lift Maki's shoulder up.
Suddenly, a movement grabbed her wrist to stop Nico in process and the next thing she knew, she was pulled forward.
Nico's eyes widen when she found herself on top of Maki and an inch from her face was the scarlet princess's purple iris. Most importantly, the warm sensation on her lips… Wait, don't tell
Yazawa Nico's first kiss was stolen.
