Chapter Three: Meeting-up

After directly receiving that wild Biochemist's Acid Demonstration, Naname decided that Tsuki Takatsuki was not to be messed around with. Torn up and ragged, he painfully walked through Prontera's dark streets. He desperately needed his bed.

... And the thunderclaps were getting louder. It might rain pretty hard tonight... This only brought his thoughts back to that Biochemist with delectable lips. Will that person be alright? He is homeless, after all. If it rains...

"Oh well." Naname sighed, "It's his fault for not taking on my offer."

Soon, the bright sun rose and cast its light upon the entire city of Prontera. The birds were singing, the sky was clear; the streets were filled with smiles. It was a picture perfect sight—if you completely remove the limping Biochemist from the picture.

Tsuki cursed his pride. If he didn't have any, then without a doubt, he would have agreed to what Naname Kuroda offered him the night before. If he didn't have any, then without a doubt, he wouldn't be feeling like total shit right now.

"Agh. I think I came down with a fever." He groaned as he slowly slumped on the wall of a random building he was passing by. His body felt weaker and weaker with each passing second. He'd pass out anytime soon.

"You there, are you alright?" Someone asked.

Obviously, not. He wanted to answer, but he wasn't able to muster enough energy to. All he could do was groan.

"You look awful."

Do you honestly expect someone to look pretty while feeling like total shit? Another groan came out.

"Do you need me to take you somewhere?" The other person went towards Tsuki to hold his hand. Unfortunately, he completely fainted before he even had a chance to slap that hand away.

When he came to his senses, he found himself in an annoyingly bright room. Hopefully, this isn't heaven, he thought.

He looked around and saw that he was in a small clinic. Tsuki also noticed that he was not alone; there were two others in the room with him. He guessed that the one wearing a white coat is the High Priest while the other one beside him is another patient.

"Seriously, Naname... What did you do? Did you get hit by some sort of bomb or something?" He asked his patient while scrutinizing the wound.

Naname...?

"I told you, didn't I? It was a kitchen accident..!" Naname insisted. There was absolutely no way he'd tell this guy the truth.

"Liar." The High Priest snapped. Taking out the disinfectant, he started the healing process.

"Why would I lie to you? You know how much I love you, right, Chaos?" He tried persuading the Chaos. Chaos simply snickered and continued healing him.

"Whatever you say, Naname. Just remember to be more careful next time, whatever it is you actually did."

With his last spell cast, Chaos heaved a heavy sigh, "Hopefully, you weren't harassing someone innocently sleeping by the road or something."

Naname laughed, "Where on Midgard did you get that silly idea?"

"I don't know. It just seems like something you would actually do instead of cooking."

Then, with slight difficulty due to his heavy head, Tsuki finally decided to stand up and speak, "Excuse me, but where am I?"

"T-tsuki?!" Naname turned around, obviously surprised by the familiar figure of the crimson-eyed lad.

"Kuroda." The Biochemist said as bitterly as he could.

"So... you guys know each other?" Chaos innocently questioned.


Mina: Another short one..! (_) Anyway, thanks for reading. (^_^) I won't make promises as to when the next one will be up since I'm pretty bad with keeping promises- especially when it comes to dates. Procrastination is my favorite hobby, after all. Once again, please feel free to leave some feedback. Constructive critisism is highly welcome.
