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.

“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”.

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gre...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship.

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.

timlapiere: this is a good novel, let me start by saying that. the main characters are well done and intriguing. But as a tip to the author i would advise you to describe more. Take your time to describe the surroundings more and generally take the time to flesh things out more. you have talent, that's pl...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Theresa Alley: There always needs to be a BEGINNING and this reads like it!! I can see SEQUELS, yes plural, after this one!! Angel can take this character a LONG WAY!! And there R a lot of places to take Her to!! Have fun!!

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.

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...
