Hello my fellow readers! Sorry about how long it's been taking me to write chapters but school had been driving me CRAZY (yes I'm a person still in school)! Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this one. I'm building up on Athena's and Shinji's relationship with you know who. Like in the last chapter there will be some moments with the two couples. Enjoy! :)
Kyoya's Point of View
The ride to Ouran was rather quiet, except the twins snickers in the corner. I shot them a glare and then turned to Shinji who was sitting beside me. She looked completely normal as if nothing had happened.
"Hey Takashi! How about we all get ice cream after school!?" Honey asked, breaking the awkward silence between everyone.
"Honey that's a wonderful idea! We can go after the club is over!" Tamaki said, his cheerfullness returning. Soon, everyone was chatting again, the awkwardness from before long gone.
"So did you figure out the cosplay for the club today?" Shinji asked me, smiling. I looked down at her and smiled back.
"Not yet but I do have a few ideas. The one I'm really thinking about is Disney characters." Her eyes lit up when I said this.
"Seriously! That is the best idea I have ever heard! We should take some time before the club starts to brainstorm what we're gonna be." She said. I stared at her for a moment as she went on, naming all the characters we should think about and I couldn't help but smile. She really was amazing.
Shinji's Point of View
"Alright so I just follow this map to find my classes? Ouran sure is big." I said to Athena as she handed me my schedule and a map.
"Yep...but I'm surprised at you." She said. I looked at her curiously.
"About your decision to dress as a boy. I bet Kyoya would have loved to see you in the girl's uniform." At this I did blush slightly.
"Those uniforms are okay, I just think it's better if I'm seen as a boy. Anyway, I need to start heading to class." Before I could leave Athena grabbed me gently by the wrist as her expression turned serious.
"Shinji. I need to ask you a question and you need to tell me the absolute truth." She said.
"Okay. I will." I said, a little warily. She had her serious face on, one that she usually never made to me.
"Do you like Kyoya? I mean, really really like him?" I stared at her for a moment before turning to the window with a small smile on my face.
"No, I don't like him." I said, causing Athena to let go of my wrist and stare at me in shock. "I love him." And without another word I started to walk down the hall to my class. What I didn't notice though, was the wide smile on Athena's face when I said that.
Athena's Point of View
"Finally! School is over. Now it's club time!" I said, stretching my arms out while I walked to the music room with Shinji. Thankfully, everyone in school believed Shinji was a boy without a hitch although, I did notice that Kyoya looked a little disappointed when Shinji walked into our math class.
"Yeah. This was a lot easier than I expected though. The classes are pretty easy." Shinji said, staring at her schedule. I couldn't help but glance her way. She had a small smile on her face and a dreamy look in her eyes and I smirked.
"So, is it true that you and Kyoya were making out this morning?" I asked her. Her face turned red and she avoided my gaze.
"Um, well, we might have had a little moment. But what about you? I saw you sneak onto the roof with Takashi!" She said, drastically changing the subject. My face also turned a slight red.
"Nothing." I said too quickly.
"Yeah sure." She said behind me as I pushed open the music room doors. As soon as I walked in, I banged into someone quite hard, causing me to stumble backwards. Warm arms caught me as I looked up to see Takashi looking down at me.
"You alright?" He asked, staring at me in concern. I simply nodded my head, trying to look everywhere but his face. In the background I could see Shinji making kissing faces at me and I scowled at her and took a step away from Takashi.
"Yeah I'm fine. Anyway, we should probably head inside." I said, walking quickly past Takashi and Shinji without glancing back. I could feel Takashi's stare as I walked up to Tamaki the whole way.
"So, what is my costume for today?" I asked Tamaki, putting my best fake smile on. He smiled brightly back.
"Well let's think. I'm the prince from Cinderella, Honey is King Arthur while Takashi is one of the Knights of the Round Table..." Tamaki started.
"We're both the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland." Hikaru and Kaoru said in unison.
"Haruhi will be dressing as Robin Hood and I'm also a Knight of the Round Table." Kyoya added while writing in his black book (or should I say drawing). I pondered this for a moment, unsure of what to be.
"I got it! Why don't you dress up as a wizard Athena! You've got the hair and eyes for it." Tamaki said. My eyes lit up in an instant.
"Yes! That's a wonderful idea!" I said, jumping slightly up and down. I ran to the back room where I knew they kept the costumes. Moments later I emerged fully dressed in dark blue robes and a hat.
"Wow Athena, you most definately look like a wizard." Shinji said to me when I came out. I couldn't help but give off a huge smile.
"Aren't you gonna wear a costume?" I asked her. She looked at me, confused.
"Why? I'm not in the club." She said in a matter of fact tone.
"But Shinji...I have the perfect outfit for you! You HAVE to put it on!" Tamaki said to Shinji. I then smiled wickedly at her and helped Tamaki drag her to the changing room.
Shinji's Point of View
"Here! Put this on!" Athena said as she shoved a bag into my hands. She winked at me before closing the curtain behind me. I stared after her before glancing down at the dress in my hands. Wait...the DRESS.
"You've got to be kidding me!" I murmured to myself as I studied the sapphire blue dress in my hands. Noooooo.
Kyoya's Point of View
"What's taking her so long?" Tamaki asked, jumping around in anticipation as we waited for Shinji.
"Ah she's fine. Someone should go check on her though. Why don't you go Kyoya?" Athena said casually from her place on the host club couch. I looked at her, surprised.
"You want me to check on her? Me?" I asked cautiously. Athena just simply nodded her head and I stared after her curiously. Something was definitely up. "Alright." I said, walking toward the changing rooms. When I left the room though, I didn't hear the conversation between them all.
"So, you think her little dress will work?" Hikaru asked Athena. She smiled wickedly at him.
"Trust me, you guys haven't seen Shinji in a dress. Kyoya will fall head over heels for her." She said, staring at the changing room door.
Meanwhile, I had made my way quietly into the changing rooms.
"Shinji? You alright?" I asked warily, stepping further into the room.
"Go away!" She said from the changing room. I stood there for a moment, stunned and confused.
"Shinji?! Something happen?!" I asked, this time, slightly panicked. I practically ran into the changing room she was in and ripped open the curtain.
"Ah! Kyoya!?" She yelped as I stepped in. I didn't respond and instead stared at her with my mouth agape.
She was wearing a slightly glimmering, sapphire blue dress. She also had a white sparkling necklace and a tiara to match. I assumed she was dressing up as Cinderella or a different princess. That was all I could think of before my mind went completely blank.
One of the sleeves of her dress wasn't on all the way, revealing one of her shoulders in the most entrancing way. I couldn't help but swallow nervously as she looked over her shoulder at me.
"U-um, I didn't mean to intrude on you." I stammered out. I knew I shouldn't be in there but I just couldn't bring myself to look away or leave.
"It's alright Kyoya. I was just getting done anyway." She said to me, finishing her dress. I felt a slight pang of disappointment when she slipped the dress over her shoulder though.
"Well, um..." I started but stopped when she sighed heavily. She then turned toward me, a slight blush on her cheeks.
"I look ridiculous, don't I?" She asked. I stared after her and before I knew it, found myself closing the distance between us. I then gently grabbed her chin and lifted it so that we were face to face, our noses almost touching. Her eyes widened at my actions.
"I think you look more than beautiful to me." I said, causing her face to turn brick red. "Wow, do you blush like that all over?" I said out loud on accident.
"What?" She asked, slightly confused and I cursed myself silently in my mind and instead of answering, smiled at her.
"Nothing, but...it does make me wonder..." I said, stepping even closer to her. "Do you really blush like that all over?" And beforw she could answer I pressed my lips, hesitantly at first, against hers.
Shinji's Point of View
His kiss was what you could call... different this time. It seemed more wanting than any of the other ones and I couldn't help but feel surprised at his actions.
His hand drifted to the back of my head as his other went to my waist. In an instant, he had pulled me tightly to him, barely leaving a molecule of air between us. I gasped slightly at this action, giving Kyoya the oppurtunity to deepen the kiss by sneaking his tongue into my mouth, flicking it once again over mine.
I wrapped my arms around his neck and started playing with his short locks of hair. He smirked at this and broke the kiss, leaving both of us panting slightly for air.
"I just gotta say this but Shinji my dear, you are a wonderful kisser." He whispered into my ear causing me to smile slightly.
"I could say the same to you." I responded before pressing my lips against his a second time. He was very good to.
