A/N: This is my first LH fic…and of course it's of my mostest favourite pairing…Keishin! If you have a problem with that pairing…DON'T READ IT!
Disclaimer: I don't own LH or any of the characters…they belong to Ken Akamatsu.
Several months have passed since Keitaro Urashima, age 21 finally fulfilled the promise that he had made to his first crush as well as the girls of Hinata House…he had become a Tokyo U student. In this time, despite all his best efforts, his relationship with Naru Narusegawa has gone nowhere. It didn't exactly help Keitaro's confidence when he was beat up on almost a daily basis by the girls of Hinata house, well all but one that is: Mitsune Kono A.k.a. 'Kitsune' age 25, Motoko Aoyama age 18, Kaolla Su age 17, Naru Narusegawa age 19, Mutsumi Otohime age 21, Sarah Macdougal age 9. With these girls as friends…who needs enemies? Shinobu Maehara age 16, the shyest and most soft-spoken of the group, whose crush for Keitaro was almost as big as her heart. It was quite obvious to anyone except Keitaro that she was head over heels for him, she was the only one who didn't beat him up and was the first one to develop a crush on him, although she was too shy to admit it. Soon the entire world will be turned upside down as the most unlikely couple finally gets together.
"I told you no! Now get out you pervert!" Naru's voice echoed through the halls of the girls' dormitory as she pushed Keitaro backwards, causing him to stumble backwards and fall back through the hole in the floor, back into his own room.
"But Naru," Keitaro protested. "It was an accident! I didn't mean to see you naked again, I swear it! Plus I still need your help to study!" He shouted up through the hole.
Naru stuck her head down through the hole, stuck her tongue out at him, pulled her head back up, and covered the hole with a board.
Keitaro sighed in defeat. "Guess I'm studying alone again tonight." He said, opening the drawer of his dresser in which he kept his text books.
"Um, Sempai?" Came a voice from the doorway.
Turning around, Keitaro saw Shinobu standing there with a text book in her hands and a hopeful look on her face. "If it isn't too much trouble, could you help me study?"
Keitaro paled slightly. He knew he had an important exam tomorrow and he needed to study for it, but he also knew that it took a lot of courage for Shinobu to come and ask him for help. "Sure I'll –"
Shinobu had seen Keitaro pale, tuned, and tried to run off.
Catching her by the shoulder, Keitaro turned her around. "Shinobu, it's not a problem at all. I'd be glad to help you study." He said, smiling at her.
Shinobu's face turned bright red when Keitaro caught her. "Thank you very much Sempai." She said, bowing.
"I told you Shinobu, you're precious to me. I'm here any time you need help. Day or night, rain or shine." Keitaro told her, his smile getting wider.
Sitting down at Keitaro's kotatsu, the two of them studied late into the night, both doing their best to prepare for the challenges that lay ahead.
