You Can Be King Again

By KiraKira

Romance / Drama

Act 1

"Yes... I do..."

'Was the words he uttered last from that night with full of tears. Those tears were obviously not for sadness and mourning, but for joy and grace.'


Act 1

[Karma's POV]

Today, my 'upgraded' relationship with Nagisa began. It has some things recent. 'This day will be our first day as lovers.'
I'm so proud of myself. I got his saccharine answer behind those tears. I admit, of course I was so nervous that time. I really didn't expecting that he'll answer me despite of him, overthinking about our same genders. Do I look like I care about whether he's a boy or not? It doesn't look like, that he's truly a boy by his physical appearance anyway. And that's how I liked him so much plus, his 'best' goody-goody attitude, and that mellifluous beam that is always curving from his lips every day.

Winter vacation has began. Fortunately, we've got our times to spend these days by ourselves. And now,

We will go on our first date.
10:00am.

I looked at my watch, to see the current time. He's too damn late. Where the hell is he? He's thirty minutes late already, dammit. Thoughts began to fulfill my mind. 'Is he okay?' 'Would he arrive here safely?' my mind speaks as I decided to take walk, but--

"Karma!"

He finally arrived.

I sighed in relieve, knowing that he's completely fine.

"What the hell took you so long? You're a half hour late."

"I-I'm sorry! I-I didn't mean it!"

"Yes, you did. So, how can you pay me from waiting here for so long?"

"Eh? U-um, I-I will be t-the one who'll treat! Is that a fine one?"

"Of course no, stupid."

"Huh?! 'Stupid'?"

"Want me to repeat again? Like hell I'm letting my tiny boyfriend to pay for this day."

I sticked out my tongue out, before patting his blue haired head. He pouts.

"Why? Can you stop making cute faces here? I'm afraid, that someone might likes you too."

"E--I-I'm not cute! S-stop t-teasing m-me, Karma!"He pouted even more.

"Aw, this day, me and Nagisa's first day and date: I made him pout. A great achievement!"

He didn't commented any word; averting his gaze, I saw a pale tint of red existing from his pale white skin.

"L-let's just--go!"

"Alright, alright."


[Nagisa's POV]

Today, our first day of date began. He really do loves to tease me everyday. I hate him.

First, we went on a certain cafe and drank latte. We ordered a same flavor, even the dessert. Great. Dessert first, before the ultimate rice. Is this the modern way of eating? Probably not. Just for this day only.
"Karma, do you want to watch a movie today?"

"Hm... Let's see..."

He began to think--wait, is he really thinking?! A hand of him is placed underneath his chin. It didn't took a minute before a rather mischievous smirk is curved from his playful lips.

"Since, my boyfriend; this day, for the 'first time' had suggested, I agree. Let's go?"

I admit, I blushed deeply.

"O-o-o-okay..."

"I never knew you can transcend the redness of my hair, huh?"

He said before laughing. Here we go again.

"I-I'm not!!"

I hid my vermillion countenance and began to walk.

"H-hey! Wait!"

"Walk faster, you truant redhead!"

I complained.

"Aye~"

[Karma's POV]

Well well well? He suggested the movie and I suggested a horror genre. Well? My aim is very clear. I couldn't help; I obviously feel my horns and tail very active. I could sense a nervous from him, based from his face signs. A-a~ this is great.

"K-karma, a-are you sure a-about this genre?"

He said--it seems that it's a complaint.

"Do you think I'm joking? Don't worry, Nagisa, that's only a movie--not a reality. You can surpass that. You're strong, right?"

My smirk was kept, enlarging the dusky aura around me. I like his current expression. The shiver, the presentiment, the scaredy face, I like them all.

'I have a plan today.'
