Mikau: Hey there everyone! Welcome to omake number one! This is dedicated to Cyanide Flowers who wanted to see the boys' first date. Thanks much to Cyanide Flowers, Syrus07, and athieisademon for reviewing. I was really glad to get back such positive feedback and lots of omake requests. I think I'll do Kaito's confession to being Kid next. Let me know if there's anything else you guys want to see. Also, some basic knowledge of the musical Les Miserables is helpful in this chapter. Jean Valjean steals a loaf of bread because his sister's kid was starving to death. He gets arrested and spends nineteen years doing hard labor. After he's released, he basically breaks parole, and Javert, a cop, hunts him down. Sounds cheery for a first date, right? Right! Please enjoy; sorry for any errors. This one was done a little quickly.
Disclaimer: If I owned it, I'd put Hakuba and Kaito in the same scene together in the anime. Just saying. It would be nice if he showed up in the Kid specials.
Omake One: The First Date
"MOOOOOOOM!" A bloodcurdling scream reverberated off of the walls of the Kuroba home.
If Chikage hadn't known that Saguru-kun and her son had their first date within the hour, she would have assumed that alien fish from Neptune were conducting a hostile takeover of their second floor.
"Yes, Darling? What is it now?" Chikage calmly turned the page of her novel.
Kaito flew down the stairs, screeching, "Saguru's gonna be here in twenty minutes, and I have nothing to wear! God, knowing that punctual British bastard, he's gonna be early! What do I doooooo?"
"You're going to see Les Miserables and then have dinner at that French place in Shinjuku, right?" His mother didn't bother looking up.
"Yeah. What do I wear?" Kaito shrieked.
"Well, first of all, have a snack; that's a long musical. Secondly, you'll need a semi-formal outfit for both the theatre and the restaurant. What do you mean you don't have anything to wear? You have at least a dozen suits in the Kid Cave!"
Kaito blinked, mouth falling open to hover scant inches above the floor. "Are you nuts? I can't wear Kid's clothes on a date with the Superintendent of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police's son!"
Chikage rolled her eyes. "Just wear the pants and the tie. Swap out the light blue shirt for a darker one, and it'll be fine. You look good in that suit, and didn't you say that Saguru-kun told you that he fell for you when you were in uniform?"
Kaito bit his lip. "Well…yeah, but…"
"Just do it. It'll be fun—exciting. Come on, Kaito. You have to keep things kinky to keep the romance alive, and what's more kinky than the forbidden love of a detective and thief? You should tell Saguru-kun to bring his handcuffs."
The teenager blinked. "I don't need to hear that from my mother!"
Chikage shrugged. "Go get changed, Sweetheart. Your boyfriend will be along any minute."
With a high-pitched squeal, the boy took off, tearing up the stairs. He returned minutes later in the suggested outfit. "How do I look?"
His mother chuckled, getting up to un-tuck the shirt, loosen the tie, tussle his hair, and undo the top two buttons of the shirt. "Sexy. He won't be able to keep his hands off of you. Remember to use protection, Honey; you're too young to get pregnant."
"Mooooom!" Kaito groaned. "Gross! And why are you assuming that I'm the one that'd end up pregnant?"
The doorbell rang, cutting off further discussion.
"Oh my God, I'm going to be sick," the love-struck adolescent whimpered.
"Are you going to get that, or shall I?" Chikage chuckled, having fun with her child's first dating experience.
"You get it. Do me a favor and pretend that I've been upstairs all of this time, okay? Call me down in, like, two minutes. I need some time. Please?" her precious son begged.
"I'll humor you, since it's your first date," she agreed, patting him on the head. "Run along."
Chikage waited until Kaito was out of sight before she went to get the door. "Good evening, Saguru-kun."
"G-G-Good evening, K-Kuroba-san," the blonde stuttered, body visibly shaking. "Is K-Kaito…?"
"Come in, Dear. Your boyfriend is upstairs having a panic attack," Chikage chuckled in amusement, escorting the young man into the parlor. "Can I get you some tea?"
"Yes, please," Saguru sighed, momentarily forgetting his manners. "I-I mean, no thank you! I'm quite fine." He hadn't yet readjusted to some of the Japanese customs following his stint abroad.
"Don't even bothering refusing the first three times I ask," she laughed good-naturedly, moving to fetch the tea. "I'd rather you be direct. After all, you are going to be my son someday, aren't you?"
The Brit's entire face went scarlet, and he gulped. "Yes, Madam."
"Then relax." She smiled, setting a cup down in front of him. "…Kaito's nervous too…. You should have seen him while you were away—a total wreck. I had to suspend my business travel for months in order to make sure that he ate and slept and went to school properly. I've never seen him so unhappy in his entire…well…after his father died, but…this was a very close second."
"I got a sense that it was pretty bad from his text messages, but…it was really that bad, wasn't it?" Hakuba gulped.
Chikage nodded. "He had to be hospitalized once, and I sometimes wondered whether I should have him committed or not…. Don't feel guilty, though. It wasn't all because of you. The boy has issues, and he doesn't deal with them in a healthy fashion."
"He's very self-destructive," the detective mumbled.
"I've got to do something about that," Saguru sighed.
"Just love the little loon." Chikage shrugged. "That's all you can do. Hopefully he'll see how much you love him and start to love himself more. I'm going to call him down now. Are you ready?"
"Do I look okay?" The lovesick sleuth swallowed hard.
His throat felt like an arid desert baking in the midday sun.
Chikage smiled, giving the detective a once over—dress slacks, dress shirt, suit vest, and tie. "To die for, Detective, if you'd just smile. Have some confidence. You could be wearing pajamas, and Kaito would still find you attractive…actually, he might prefer you in pjs. Do you sleep shirtless?"
The blonde blushed.
"Anyway, don't worry. It's just your first date; there'll be hundreds more. It's an important event, but it's not a deal breaker. Kaito loves musicals and expensive food. As long as you don't order fish, he'll be happy. You two could be ordering pizza and watching a movie, for all he cares. He's happy just being with you, so relax."
"T-Thank you, Kuroba-san," Saguru stuttered, breaking into a gigantic grin.
"Don't worry about it," Chikage replied with a wink. "Kaito! Your boyfriend's here!"
"Coming!" the reply echoed down the stairwell, making the Brit's heart speed up.
And then Kaito slowly descended the stairs, a smug half-grin cemented on his face. "Hey," he chuckled.
He looked absolutely beddable with his messy hair and slightly disheveled clothing.
"Hello yourself," Saguru whispered, feeling quite giddy.
Dear lord his boyfriend was hott!
Kaito leisurely approached, stopping so that he was standing right in front of Hakuba, a breath away, without actually touching him. He smirked, leaning in like he was aiming for Saguru's lips, but he paused mid-motion and rocked back on his heels. "So…you gonna kiss me, or what?"
Ohoo! A challenge!
"Right in front of your mother?" Saguru chuckled, leaning forward and pulling back, teasing just as Kaito had teased him.
"I'm not even here!" Chikage sang, getting out the camera.
"She says she's not here," Kaito relayed the information.
"Well, if she's not here," the blonde whispered, leaning in again, but this time going all the way so that their lips brushed.
Kaito's arms wrapped around Saguru's neck, and things only escalated from there.
The gentleman did his best to keep it from getting too raunchy, though. After all, his future mother-in-law was digitally documenting the event.
They broke away and smiled like maniacs at each other for an entire minute.
Hakuba blinked. "There's something in your hair. Let me get it for you." He gently tucked a strand of Kaito's hair behind his ear, and when he pulled his hand back, he was holding a scarlet rose. "Wonder how that got there. Though, knowing you…" He held out the flower to his love.
Kaito blushed, smile widening. "Th-Thank you. So that's what it feels like whenever I do that to people. Thanks, Saguru."
"It took me days to learn how to do that," Saguru chuckled. "But…if it makes you happy."
The shorter boy leaned in and gave his boyfriend a reward for his efforts.
"Hold that pose," Chikage commanded, snapping away.
"Mooooom!" Kaito groaned.
"What? You two are adorable! And it's not like you're ever going to have another first date, Kaito…unless you screw this up royally." There was a threat in there somewhere. "Now, Saguru-kun, if I could have you put your arm around his waist? Kaito, rest your head against his shoulder. Now smile!"
The couple did as asked (one half a little more compliant than the other).
"Now get out of here. You can make out later, but you don't want to be late for the show," Chikage insisted, ushering them towards the door. "I'll put the rose in a vase for you, Honey. Text me in the morning." She took the flower and turned to Hakuba. "Saguru-kun, do be gentle with him; it's his first time."
"Mother!" Kaito groaned, both boys turning as red as cherry tomatoes.
"Have fuuun!" Chikage sang, shutting the door behind them.
Her smile faded a little as soon as they were gone.
Her baby was growing up and leaving her, but at least he had found an exceptional mate.
"…and the music was spectacular!" Kaito gushed over dinner. "I especially liked A Little Fall of Rain. God, that was beautiful. I normally don't cry at movies or whatever, but that was really…I don't even know. It was fantabulous. Thanks so much for taking me to see it!"
"I'm just glad you liked it so much," Saguru chuckled, perfectly content to listen to his beloved's chatter for the rest of his life. "Who was your favorite character?"
"Eponine all the way. I liked Jean Valjean too…. You like Javert, don't you?" Kaito smiled, leaning forward, oh so tempted to rest his elbows on the table. He resisted.
"I do." Saguru returned the smile. "How well you know me. You know, the struggle between Javert and Valjean sort of reminds me of my own rivalry with a certain thief, though hopefully mine will end better."
"But…Valjean wasn't a bad guy. He only stole in order to feed his starving family. I think it makes a difference, if you steal for the right reasons," Kaito replied pensively, looking down into his plate at the salad there.
"Oh?" Saguru made a mental note. "I think so too."
The brunette blinked, looking up into those golden eyes. "Y-You do?"
Hakuba nodded. "I'm not as much of a stickler as Javert. I acknowledge that there are instances in which bending—even breaking—the law is the right thing to do. Those cases are few and far between, though."
Kaito nodded, feeling overwhelmingly relieved.
"What do you make of the Innkeeper and his wife?"
The older teen snorted. "Those crooks? They just made me angry. How can you be so corrupt? I mean…stealing like that is just wrong!"
"This from the Kaitou Kid…'s aficionado," Saguru amended at the last second.
"Kid's different," Kaito mumbled.
"You think so? I disagree…but…maybe if you were to explain your reasoning, I could most likely be convinced to see things your way. I have seen overwhelming evidence that Kid is a good person, and he often exposes fraud or benefits those he's steals from in some way, but…stealing priceless gems is nothing like stealing a loaf of bread to feed a starving family. I'd be very interested in learning in what way Kid is more similar to Valjean than the Innkeepers. I want to believe that he has a good reason." Saguru paused and allowed Kaito to make his move.
"Not tonight," Kaito whispered, poking at the salad. "But…eventually. I promise, I'll explain everything eventually. You'll probably get angry and tell me that I should have gone to the police, but…I think you'll be able to understand, and I think you would have done the same thing that I did."
"Very well, Darling," Saguru sighed. "I'll suspend judgment for as long as it takes."
The blonde waved it away with a smile. "Don't be. As long as you tell me eventually…well…soonish."
"I need to think about what would be safe for you to know," Kaito explained. "I don't want to tell you too much and get you killed."
"K-Killed?" Saguru blinked. Then he remembered the shootings at the Kid heists. Why had he never put two and two together? "Kaito—"
"—Saguru, I don't want to talk about this on our first date," Kaito stated firmly. "I promised to tell you, and I always keep my word, so…be patient, okay?"
Saguru frowned. "…I love you. You're not allowed to die."
"How's this? I'll die when you do."
"That…doesn't sound half bad, actually." Saguru shrugged.
"Great." Kaito blinked. "You know, death isn't very romantic. Tell me I'm pretty."
"You're gorgeous. Angelic, glorious, divine," Saguru rattled off the list, meaning every word.
"So's your face," Kaito snickered. "So what's that? Can I try a bite?" The imp indicated the foreign substance on his boyfriend's plate.
"Say 'ah.'" Saguru held out his fork.
"Ah," Kaito obliged. "That's really good!" He sang. "Can I have another bite? What is that?"
"Escargot," Saguru explained, feeding his darling again.
"What's escargot?" Kaito blinked.
"Snails." The Brit shrugged.
Kaito blinked. "Please tell me you're not serious."
Saguru blinked. Then laughed.
"That's disgusting!" Kaito shrieked as quietly as possible so as not to draw attention.
"But you said that it was good," the detective continued to chuckle.
"Yeah, but…!" Kaito crinkled his nose. "Don't tell me what it is next time."
"Want another bite?" Saguru held out the fork.
"Yes," the magician pouted.
They walked around for a while after dinner, discretely holding hands and chatting quietly.
"I should get you home soon," Saguru whispered when the distant clock tower started to toll ten.
"It's still early," Kaito whined, giving his boyfriend's hand a squeeze. "Besides, I don't want to go home." The brunette came to a stop under a streetlamp and looked his detective right in the eye. "Take me home with you."
"Kaito," Saguru sighed, giving their surroundings a cursory glance before pulling his boyfriend into his arms and planting a kiss on his forehead. "My dove, you know I love you to pieces, but I don't want to sleep with you yet. I'm not ready for that kind of physical relationship. It's not healthy to throw physical intimacy into the mix right at the beginning. We need to go slow; just give it a month or two, please."
"I…I didn't mean…" Kaito started to chuckle, giving his love a peck on the jaw. "I know, Saguru, and I respect your decision. All I meant was that I wanted to go home with you and snuggle. I want to spend more time with you. I'm not ready to say goodnight yet."
"Oh." Saguru blinked. "Oh, is that all? Of course you can come over to snuggle…as long as you keep your clothes on and hands away from inappropriate areas of my anatomy."
"I promise I won't try to seduce you," the magician swore into Hakuba's ear, letting his lips brush the outer shell sensually.
"God, you don't even have to try; you're doing it already," Saguru whimpered.
"Can I spend the night? Please?" the manipulative teen begged.
"Alright. Let's drop by your house and pick up an overnight bag," the detective quickly changed his tune, taking Kaito by the hand and almost dragging the boy back to his house.
The sooner he got his boyfriend home and in bed, the better.
"Two months," he kept reminding himself throughout the night. "Two months at the very least. The Successful Relationships book said to wait."
Two months became one as that lithe, sinewy body pressed up against his, and one month slowly trickled away into three weeks, two weeks, one!
"At the very, absolute least you have to wait one week, Saguru! Get your head out of your pants!"
Thankfully, at that point, Kaito eased up a little. "Am I making you uncomfortable, Love?" the imp snickered, pinching the Brit's bum.
"You know you are," Hakuba growled softly. "You're making this rather difficult for me, and if you don't stop, I'll be forced to ban you from my bed."
Kaito smiled sheepishly, pushing himself up to kiss his boyfriend on the cheek. "I loooove you."
"You love to torture me, you do," the Englishman grumbled. "You make it very hard to remember that I'm a gentleman."
"Sometimes you just need to give in to your primal instincts." Kaito shrugged.
"Not now," Saguru insisted. "I want our first time to be special."
"It'll be special enough so long as it's you I'm with," the magician stated simply. "We could make love in a broom closet, for all I care. Honestly, anywhere's fine."
"But I want to take you to Paris," Saguru sighed. "I want to take you out to dinner at a gourmet restaurant, show you around town so that you can see Paris all lit up at night, and then bring you back to the most expensive hotel in town to make love to you in the honeymoon suite."
Kaito blinked. "P-Paris? Saguru, you don't have to do that; I was serious about the broom closet. Anywhere is fine as long as it's with you. You don't have to cart me halfway around the world and spend all that money just to make love to me. Here's fine. Now's fine. Just like this is fine."
"It is most certainly not!" Saguru insisted. "You are the most amazing, wonderful person I've ever met, and you deserve to be treated like—and forgive the gender of the noun, but—a princess. I feel so unbelievably blessed that someone like you loves someone like me, Kaito. I know you don't want anything, but I want to give you everything. I love you, and I want to spoil you rotten, so please, please let me."
"You're the amazing one, Saguru. I'm the one that's blessed," Kaito whispered, nuzzling his boyfriend's ear. "I…I'm not like you. I don't have money or social status…. All I've got to give you is myself, and I don't know if that'll always be enough, but…I'll give you all of me. If it's really important to you that you take me to Paris and give me the royal treatment, that's what we'll do. I just…I feel bad, since I can't give you anything in return."
"Just having you is more than enough," Saguru chuckled, giving Kaito's ear a nip. "Besides, the trip to Paris is more for me than for you. You don't really want to go and be pampered, do you?"
"Not really." Kaito grumbled. "I'd rather we just get naked right here and now, but…"
"Then you tolerating and going along with my Prince Charming complex is more than enough compensation." Hakuba smirked.
Kaito blinked. "Geez. Why do you have to go and make so much sense?"
"Because I know with whom I am dealing, and with you it's either logic or nonsense."
Kaito nodded, silently conceding defeat. "So…when are you taking me to Paris?"
"In a month or two, my dove," Saguru assured.
"How about at the end of June for my birthday?" Kaito suggested. "We can't just tell our parents that we're going to Europe to make love, but they'd probably buy a trip to Paris for my birthday."
"I'll make the preparations then," the blonde promised.
"Saguru?" Kaito whispered breathily.
"Yes, Love?" Saguru mumbled, giving his thief an Eskimo kiss.
"This was the best first date of my entire life."
"Mine too," Saguru chuckled in response, wrapping an arm around Kaito's waist and pulling him closer.
Mikau: My Zumba instructor's little girl was wearing her hair in pigtails today, and it reminded me of this emot I did back in…Come to Taunt Me, maybe? Anyway, I did Aqua Zumba for the first time today. It's basically the same as regular Zumba, but in a pool. With water resistance. It was fun. (I mean that both literally and sarcastically). It was tough, but I'll probably go back next week. In other news, sometimes when writing and thinking about the characters' ages (technically they don't age. Even though time passes, they remain forever class 2B.) I think, "They're seventeen. Do seventeen year-old boys really behave like this? Good lord, my little brother's seventeen and a half!" Maybe seventeen year-olds with love lives do. My little brother has MMORPGs. Then again, I really didn't have a love life at seventeen. I had musical theatre. I still don't have a love life. Gasp! I remain calm by telling myself that my future mate is currently in Japan. I am currently not. Therefore, I don't have to worry about it until I get back there and remain single. Instant inner peace. Man, I'm blathering a lot tonight. Sorry. Ignore me and my personal life. Thanks for reading the chapter, and take care!
