Our First Valentine
to love somebody, coming to show them that your only weakness was
them--How would you react? Would you run away, deny your feelings, or
just plainly ignore their pressence. Yuki Sohma, never really thought
of the matter for he never really truely loved anyone. At least not
until that day, the day in which he first met him, kyou. There he was
just standing there, head bent, tie crocked and a messy blob of orange
hair on top of a sad looking face. Yuki was walking past the main
entrance when he first laid eyes on this peculiar kid. He slowed his
paced and just stared at the other little boy. Rarely did he see any
guest around the main house and not one who looked so sad. The boy
standing as if lost and uncertain where to stand and what do, after
spotting him the boy gave a tiniest hint of a smile. As the boy looked
up Yuki wondered how the boy got the bruise under his eyes, and what
happened to his missing teeth. Walking up towards the boy Yuki asked
him his name.
"I'm kyou" the boy replied with a smile.
"Why are you here?" Yuki asked
"Well...I'm not sure...they just brought me here"
then" started Yuki "hmm...I know you can play with me," holding out his
hand towards Kyou "we can go play in the garden behind the house"
Sensing that Kyou was still hesitant Yuki offered Kyou some chocolate.
"Here you can have these; some of the girls from the house gave me some
since its valentines day." Smiling Yuki took kyou's hand and started
towards the garden. "It's so great to have another guy here to play
with, Akito doesn't like other kids coming to play though." Glancing
back Yuki noticed that Kyou had suddenly stopped and grown pale.
"What's wrong? Are you ok? Here sit here." Yuki told kyou to sit on the
swing that was there. "Are you ok?"
"I'm fine," replied Kyou looking away "it's just...no never mind, I was just shocked for a moment?"
not satisfied with his excuse Yuki glared at the kid sitting in front
of him. "Is it 'bout Akito," Seeing Kyou pale from the name, he knew he
guessed right. "Akito did something to you didn't he? What did he do?"
"It's nothing," Kyou started "I'm...I'm...f...fine" by the end of the sentence tears were coming forth from Kyou's face.
"You’re not fine" Yuki started "tell me I'll listen"
unsure if he should trust this boy or not Kyou was still stalling. "you
see" then he felt it again—two unwavering hands touching him without
flinching, two small pairs of hands cradling his small face. He then
noticed that the boy standing in front of him was crying. He wasn't
sure why but for some reason he knew that that boy was crying for him.
Nodding his head Kyou agreed to tell this boy his secret—a secret in
which he was told never to tell anyone. "You see, when I was born, I
was born with a curse." Stopping and facing the other direction Kyou
stopped talking for awhile.
"It's ok...I kinda figured you were part of the family...it's ok, I was born with the curse too."
it’s not ok...actually, I already knew who you were, you’re Yuki, you
were born with the curse of the rat. Ever since I've met you I've
known." Blushing Kyou stared at his hands "you see, when I was born, I
was cursed with the spirit of the cat. All the adults says it’s a bad
thing, they say weird things and look at me strangely. Even my mom is
afraid of me." Crying now Kyou felt Yuki put his hand around his
shoulder. "I don't mind really, but he said that I didn't belong in
this family, and and,"
"It's ok, you don't have to say anymore,
you are wanted. I want you to stay, so please never forget that, and I
promise I'll never leave you."
Looking up into Yuki's eyes, Kyou asked with some hope in his voice "really?"
"yes" replied Yuki.
you, Yuki-chan" smiling now Kyou stared off into the sky, he was so
happy to met his first friend in the Sohma household. He felt that no
matter what happens he'll always remember Yuki, and will always
remember this Valentines Day. "Hey Yuki-chan"
"Bet ya can't beat me in fighting" Grinning now Kyou lept off the swing.
right back, Yuki replied with a smirk and a "Betcha' I can" and with
that said Yuki and Kyou started their match inside the garden.
10 Years Later
was once again Valentines Day, in the very same garden in which he had
made his promise. Yuki stared at the sleeping Kyou, as he curled
himself him a ball. Yuki remembered the promise clearly, although he
acted as if he didn't. He was still alittle mad that Kyou had left to
go training with his sensei without telling him. However, today was
special he admitted. Today was the day in which he first fell deeply in
love with the man laying there underneath the cherryblossom trees.
Walking toward Kyou, Yuki looked at the chocolate in his hand.
"hmmm..." smirking now Yuki sat next to Kyou. Looking around Yuki then
opened the chocolate and placed it in Kyou's mouth.
"I'm glad you like it" replied Yuki "that was my last one..."
"Heh, didn't you want it?" Kyou asked with a mischeivious grin on his face.
"yea, I did, but I thought you would enjoy it more." smiling Yuki stared at the falling cherry blossoms.
"Hmmm...Now that can be arranged." Kyou said
Leaning in Kyou kissed Yuki, "So how do you like that chocolately kiss?" grinned Kyou.
be better" replied Yuki smiling. Looking down at a cherry-blossom that
had landed on Kyou's shoulder Yuki asked "Say Kyou, do you remember
when we first met?"
Looking at Yuki, Kyou noticed that Yuki was alittle uncertain, "Huh you mean the day I got my assed kicked by you?"
"That's everyday," Yuki said, still not looking at kyou.
that he was still uncertain Kyou became serious, "Yes, I remember when
you first talked to me, how you gave me chocolate, and how you promised
never leave my side." Smiling Kyou placed his arms around Yuki, "and I
promise you, that no matter how many times we fight, remember, that
i'll always love you."
Tears coming down his face Yuki wiped them away, "thanks,"
"For what?" Kyou asked
"Nothing," replied a smiling Yuki "I'm sorry, I haven't been myself lately."
"It's ok, I forgive you...and by the way, betcha I can win you now." Kyou grinned.
back Yuki replied "bet cha' can't" turning around Yuki then proceeded
to sit on Kyou's stomach. Sticking out his tongue Yuki began to laugh
Kyou was glad that Yuki was laughing, for this was a
side of Yuki that Kyou had all to himself. Not many people have seen
this side of Yuki, and Kyou was glad that Yuki showed it to him the
most often, and once again he thanked god for sending him this person
to help him through all his tough times. He wasn't sure if he would
have made it this far if it wasn't for Yuki and two others. One was his
sensai and the other a girl by the name of Tohru. But he was glad that
Yuki was there with him and he promised to never let anyone hurt his
Yuki knew he that he was loved, and that feeling
was the most beautiful feeling in the world. He also knew that he would
have to tell Kyou those three words soon. He wanted too. As for now,
he'll just whisper it from his heart, knowing one day Kyou will most
definately hear the words coming from his lips. Yuki thought to
himself, tonight when the stars are out underneath this very cherry
blossom tree, and the moons reflected by the nearby pond he’ll tell
him. Yes tonight, I'll definately tell him how I truely feel.
