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”.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

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...

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive.

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 ...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Brandy: What a great take on the idea of finding your dream man. The story was very emotional with strong characters. I would recommend this story to any who wants to read a good love story. And yes, Italian food does make everything better.
