Hello, hello! Welcome to my first OHSHC fanfic. This story will he dedicated to my favorite host, Kyōya. This is a Kyōya x Haruhi fic, rating may change at some point. Reviews will be very much appreciated, I love to know what my readers think - good or bad! Haruhi and Kyōya are very slightly OOC for the sake of the story, hopefully it won't be terribly noticeable.
A small, frail slip of a girl made her way down the large, intricate school hall. Large, beautifully framed paintings lined the walls, showcasing just how wealthy the people who attended this school really were. She adjusted the bangs that fell into her face, sighing. "Geez…I need a haircut. Maybe that place a few streets away from home is still open…" The girl continued to walk down the hallways, occasionally seeing a few students as she passed: girls in yellow dresses, boys in black slacks and purple blazers. "An odd combination…but, it works." Her eyes traveled down to her own black pants and jacket, blown away at the quality of the clothes she was wearing. "How many zeros…?"
"You seem to be lost in thought, Haruhi." A deep voice touched her ears, making her lift her eyes. Before her stood the elusive, dangerous, shadow king of the Host Club: Kyōya Ōtori. The attractive and intimidating boy stood at an impressive 5'11", a whole 10" taller than herself. When the light wasn't reflecting off of his glasses, people were graced with the beautiful obsidian that was his eyes. The dark black of his hair brought out the grey flecks of his irises, making them shine brilliantly. His uniform was tailored perfectly to his lengthy limbs, making him seem even taller.
"Ah, yes." She answered, clutching her books to her chest in a nervous habit. She had to admit, recently she had been feeling uneasy around the Demon King. Not necessarily because of that, no - because…well…Okay, honestly? She couldn't place why she was suddenly on edge around him. His demeanor, his voice, his calculating nature. Everything with him was planned: good or bad.
"Thinking about anything… in particular?" Although it was a question, his tone let Haruhi know that he already had a good idea.
She looked around, her big brown eyes landing on the chandelier hanging from the ceiling. The large, teardrop crystals caught ever ray of light emitted from the crisp, white lightbulbs. Each sparkle from the ornaments caught in her brown eyes, making them shimmer. "You know." She murmured, turning her head to look him in the eye, and wisps of brown hair fell around her face as she did.
He smirked, adjusting his glasses. A glare from the chandelier caught to hide his eyes and the tops of his cheekbones. "Still amazed about how rich everyone is at this school?" In that moment, Haruhi really took a second to observe her friend before her, and who he really was. Kyōya Ōtori, son of Yoshio Ōtori, third son to the CEO of the Ōtori Group, responsible for therapeutic health care, also known as zaibatsu. He was worth millions, maybe even billions, and looked it too. At the age of 17, he was one of the richest teenagers in the country - possibly the world. And that, admittedly, intimidated her.
Yet, she didn't show it. She knew that if even the slightest bit of her true feelings showed, he would pounce on that opportunity. "Naturally." She responded. "I'm the only commoner here. I bet your toothbrush cost as much as my rent." She joked, a small smile hidden in the corner of her lips.
"Well, I do have a gold toothbrush." He joked back, his tone probably the most teasing she had ever heard before from him. It was unusual, yet Haruhi couldn't say she didn't enjoy it. The petite girl had noticed that Kyōya could be very different outside of club hours. Around Haruhi, the raven was more…normal, if that was the correct word. He shed his uptight air, but not enough to completely warp what made him appealing. She had recently become very acquainted with the host's personality…
"Star signs?" Haruhi questioned, tilting her head to the side.
"Are you familiar with them?" He asked, typing on his laptop. Haruhi knew that Kyōya enjoyed science, especially physics. Yet, astrology was such a…berated field, she couldn't imagine that he had much interest in it. "Believe it or not," he adjusted his glasses, his eyes meeting hers, "I happen to resonate heavily with my sign."
"You're a scorpio, correct?" Her question was more for affirmation than anything, she had a good idea of what his sign was.
A small, seemingly mischievous smile could be seen, and he nodded. "That's correct. I suggest you read up on them."
Later that day, she had gone to the library and found a few articles on star signs. The article had a lot of things on scorpio, but she skimmed and only read what caught her attention:
Scorpio Strength Keywords:
Loyal, Passionate, Resourceful, Observant, Dynamic
Scorpio Weakness Keywords:
Jealous, Obsessive, Suspicious, Manipulative, Unyielding
"Hmm, that fits him. 'Manipulative, Resourceful, Observant'…" she commented, subconsciously chewing on her thumb as she read.
Scorpio and Business:
Scorpios make excellent doctors, surgeons, scientists and leaders, they are perfectly suited to any form of business that makes a difference in the world, greatly impacts people and society and a most importantly, Scorpio has to be in a power position, this is why these careers are suited to the Scorpio, they all demand one person in supreme control giving orders and leading a unit of people/practices. In business, Scorpios tend to easily gather wealth, they make very wise business decisions and they are very conservative about spending their money. Scorpios are known for making money and hiding it, they will not announce it due to to fear that others will take the same route and becoming a possible competitor, or worse try to use the Scorpio to their advantage to use them for their money.
"Sounds perfect for Kyōya. He seems to be in the correct field, if any of this is correct." Yet, as she perused the article further, one of the very last sections caught her attention:
Scorpio Deep Inside:
Scorpio is the most misunderstood of all astrology signs. They are all about intensity and contradictions. They like to be aware of a situation and always know what's going on, figuring this out with their probing mind, on the other hand, they are interested in the occult, the paranormal, conspiracy theories and other types of similar unknown mysteries. They are very capable of hiding their true feelings and motivations, they often have ulterior motives or a hidden agenda.
Scorpios are all about control, they need to be in control at all times. To be out of control is very threatening, even dangerous to the Scorpio's psyche, when they control, they feel safe.
Scorpios are very emotional, their emotions are intensified, both good emotions and bad. Negative emotions of jealousy and resentment are hallmarks of this turbulent astrology sign. On the other side, Scorpios are well known for their forceful and powerful drive to succeed and their amazing dedication. Scorpios are constantly trying to understand their emotions through finding a deeper purpose in life.
Scorpios are very intuitive, but not as in a psychic sense, more as intuitive into the human mind, they have a great understanding of the mystery and the power of the human mind.
Scorpios have a fear of failure which they keep hidden extremely well, should their confrontation not be successful, or their career fail, they will simply use their adaptive skill to quickly move and and leave the bad experience behind. Do not ever expect them to fess up or share their tale with anyone however because this shows signs of weakness and Scorpio always wins, they are always the self-proclaimed best! One of the reasons they seem like they always accomplish their goals is because they set tangible short-term goals that they know they can accomplish, they know what they are capable of and this is what they go for.
Scorpios are very weary about trusting anyone, a person needs to gain their trust and this gets built up over time and once all the 'trust tests' have been passed, Scorpio loves deeply and intensely. Underneath the cool exterior, energies and emotions are constantly flowing but the Scorpio deals with this be channeling this into useful activities, hobbies, relationships or a career. This is never apparent to the outside observer but knowing this fact explains why Scorpios are so passionate about whatever it is that they are undertaking. Scorpios have powerful instincts and they trust their own gut feeling which is another reason why a Scorpio seldom fails.
The ongoing lesson in life for those born under the Scorpio zodiac signs, is to channel their powerful energy into positive goals and not succumbing to the darker forces in life such as manipulation and greed, they will then have great success in their life and have a clean, happy conscience and a circle of friends they can trust and hold dear to them.
Admittedly, Haruhi was enraptured by this information. She didn't know if any of this was…concrete information or not, but a part of her wanted to believe it was true. And why not? Everything up until that point had been accurate…
A loud crash tore the small girl from her trip down memory lane. Kyōya seemed unfazed by the noise, and turned to his black notebook. "Tamaki." He called, and a blonde mop of hair poked up from the top of the stairs.
Tamaki Suoh, the son of the chairman Yuzuru Suoh: Chairman of Ouran Academy and Presider of Suoh enterprises. Tamaki stood at 6' tall, with big blue eyes and pretty blonde hair. He was a hafu: half Japanese and half French, and his entire name was René Tamaki Richard de Grantaine Suoh. The blonde was flamboyant, loud, and dramatic, but could be serious when he needed to be.
"Kyōyaaaa!" The blonde cried, running over to his friend and hugging him. "My dearest friend, I need you!" He yelled, crocodile tears forming in his eyes.
"What happened?" The raven sighed, looking down at his friend.
But Haruhi wasn't that interested in hearing what Tamaki was freaked out about. She snuck passed the two when Tamaki wasn't looking, slipping into the old music room.
"Today is going to be another one of those days…" she sighed, getting ready for hosting to begin.
Here's the first installment! Thank you for checking this story out!
