Under The Sakura Tree

By Sakurai Soara


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.


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.


“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.


“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.


“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”.

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Alana Dill: Well, that was very fine indeed. Well-crafted story gives a lot of insight into Wray's life as a con guest. I love the little details about signing, and his interior monologue as his conversation goes down in flames. All the characters seem real and engaging. It makes me wish Christina Hendricks ...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

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...

Caitlin E. Jones: Beautifully constructed and verse-like, this novel is as poetic as it is intelligent. The story's world is spellbinding and realistically put in ways, drawing from a "Game of Thrones"-like darkness around the main character's life. His surrounding cast is so dynamic and memorable, all without clu...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...

precious_passenger: I've read this story on and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

Alex Reltin: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.
