One Shot

Sakura Blossom season, who doesn’t like to go outside and walk under this beautiful and pretty trees? The view make the person himself go out even without any particular plans, watch, that’s it.

And this what Yuya did, he leave the house without any plans just to look at the tree blossoms beautiful flowers that fall in the ground making the way all pinky with a nice fresh smell in the air.

He stopped when he saw someone sleeping under one of the trees while the book on his face, Yuya walk closer and take the book away slowly, he look at the book and find a name on it “Inoo Kei?!”. He stopped when he see the pretty face of that person, he just kept looking at him until the person open his eyes slowly.

“Who are you??“. The pretty boy asked when he saw Yuya in front of him.

“S-Sorry! I-I wake you!“. Yuya give the boy back his book, the boy named Kei look at his watch and gasp.

“OH MY GOD! Thank You For Waking Me Up! I’m Late! Thanks Again!“. Kei get up and take his stuff and run away without looking back.

“You’re.....Welcome”.

Yuya didn’t take it on his mind at all, it was only a boy and that’s all, but he start to think about it, specially when he see the pretty boy under the same Sakura tree at the same time sleeping, Yuya wanted to get out from home to see if the pretty boy named Inoo Kei will be in his place again today, and yes, he is sleeping under the tree with the book on his face. He sighed and sit next to him.

Yuya look up at the sky and take a deep breath and release it, the pretty sleep boy whined and turn his side, the book fall from his face and Yuya take it. He look at the book and open it to read.

“Oh....It’s interesting!“.

He got interested in the book and start to read it, until Kei wake up and sit while looking at his watch panicky.

“Oh! Sorry for waking you”. Yuya said without looking away from the book, Kei sighed and shake his head.

“No it’s ok, I have time, but....What are you doing here?!“. Kei ask him and Yuya look at him.

“I always see you sleeping under this tree, so I come and I think I get interested on this book”. Yuya close the book and give it back to Kei.

“Oh, un, it’s a nice book, if you want I can lend it to you so you can read it”.

“Really?! Can I borrow it?!“. Yuya ask with a smile and Kei smile back to him.

“Of Course, by the way, I am Inoo Kei”.

“I know you”. Kei blink his eyes.

“Eeh?! How?! I don’t know you!“. Yuya shake his head.

“Your name is on the book, I’m Takaki Yuya”.

“Nice to meet you, but how can you tell that this name in mine?!“. Kei asked and Yuya look at him.

“Because I can tell if this name suit you or not, and this name suits you so much”. Yuya said with a smile and Kei smile to him back.

“Thanks”.

“By the way, why are you always sleeping here?!“. Yuya ask him and Kei look up.

“Because the place is so nice, don’t you think so?!“. Kei turn to look at Yuya who nodded at him.

“Un, it is nice”.

“The atmosphere make you relax and sleep for hours, when I read I just become more sleepy, so I end up sleeping”.

Kei said and Yuya nodded in understanding, indeed the view and the smell and the weather make anyone sleepy, specially if he was reading.

“Ah! I have to go now”. Kei stand up and take his stuff.

“Where?!“.

“My part-time job, I work in a hotel restaurant, if you want you can come and visit, it’s there”. Kei point at a hotel, it’s not that far, Yuya nodded.

“Un, I will try to visit soon”.

“Well then, I will go”. Kei turn and walk away but.....

“Inoo!“. Yuya call him and make him look at him.

“Yes?!“.

“You....Will be here tomorrow right?!“. Yuya ask him nervously, Kei smile to him and nodded.

“Un, I will be here”.

Kei walk away with a smile.

“....Waiting for you”.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

Books17: This is my first book review.I found the story to be very intriguing.The beginning of the story starts and you are immediately thrown into wanting to know what will happen next, The action, or intrigue is established early, so there isn't the feeling of the story dragging on, or thinking about wh...

johnksutherland: Very modern, and quite erotic. I write erotics myself, but from a strictly 'straight' point of view and not BDSM. I read the first story and skimmed the rest. The author's writing style is superb and very easy to read. The stories are simple and entertaining. I liked everything about it, and I a...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that.
