To Wake the Shadow King
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the wonderful characters from OHSHC, but I would be happy to keep a few of them if they are out for loan. You can keep Tamaki, I don't want him.
AN: Welcome to my first fanfic! I have to admit I am really nervous about uploading this and I honestly don't think its very good. Then again I have no faith in my writting abilities and prefer to edit for others. Anyway I finally wrote one since this plot bunny just wouldn't leave me alone until I did. Every time I read a fic I would think "gee why didn't they try this." So to save myself from flavoring other people's stories I finally wrote my own.I tried my best to keep everyone in character though I am sure that I messed up somewhere. I Know that there are plenty of others out there that are better than mine but maybe, just maybe you will enjoy this. I appreciate lots of constructive criticism and believe that flames come from people with no imagination of their own. There is a difference. If your just going to be mean don't review it's that simple. Anyway Hope you all like this and here's to hoping my writing improves.
Saturday, 8am outside the Ootori Mansion
"...but Haruhi!" Tamaki whined to the unhappy young woman while giving her his best puppy dog face.
"But why does it have to be me?" replied Haruhi as she tried her best to discourage the Suoh heir from his current idea. This idea being that Haruhi had to be the one to wake the Low Blood Pressure Demon Lord, also known as Kyouya Ootori.
"Well, Haru-chan, that's because Tama-chan is afraid of Kyou-chan. Right Takashi?" piped in an overly joyful Hunny-senpai.
"Ah." replied a stoic Mori-senpai.
"That's right..." chimed Kaoru with a bored look at Haruhi.
"...especially after what happened last time." Hikaru finished with a look matching his twin.
"So, what is you two's excuse?" Haruhi asked looking at her best friends.
"We have to watch the car" the twins relied together.
Glancing at Hunny and Mori, Haruhi realized that they would be of no help either. Hunny, sitting next to Mori, was in the limo happily eating a piece of cake. Haruhi sighed and resigned herself to the fact that she was in fact going to have to wake Kyouya all by herself. Silently she admonished herself for ever thinking otherwise.
After several minutes and several corridors later Haruhi, her twin shadows (who were supposed to be watching the car) and a pouting Tamaki made their way to Kyouya's door. Tamaki began to visibly tremble as he looked at the door. This caused Haruhi to wonder how terrifying Kyouya could be actually upon waking. She highly doubted that it was as bad as Tamaki and the others were making it out to be, but still she wondered.
"We'll wait here." Hikaru said as he leaned against the wall.
"You know, just in case..." Kaoru replied matching his brothers' pose. In case of what Haruhi wondered. After all they were sending her to wake Kyouya rather than doing it themselves. She highly doubted that they were going to run to her rescue if anything did happen. With another sigh she opened the door and proceeded.
Her first thought about the room was that it was clean, almost sterile in its appearance. There were no loud colors to be seen, as the room was in all neutral tones. It was pristine from wall to wall with no sign of life anywhere. Then again she was in Kyouya Ootori's room. He wasn't the type to leave anything out of order. She smirked as she thought this and looked at his sitting area. To her left, she noticed, was a set of stairs leading to a loft and presumably where Kyouya slept. Slowly and quietly Haruhi began climbing the short flight of stairs and was relieved to find that this was indeed where Kyouya's bed was. Regardless of how thankful she was about not having to look for Kyouya any longer a since of dread began to feel her. Now that she had found him it was time to wake him. 'Thankfully he is fully covered' Haruhi thought as she looked at the bit of black hair that was poking out from under the grey comforter. Haruhi silently hoped that she could wake him from her position at the top of the stairs, though she was beginning to seriously doubt her luck. She told herself that she did not want to know what he was wearing under that blanket, though if she were honest with herself she was a bit curious. Blushing she began calling out to him.
"Kyouya-senpai..." she quietly called to the mass.
"Kyouya-senpai its time to get up." she called a bit louder. Neither time getting any form of response. Noting this she set her shoulders and quietly made her way to the side of his bed.
"Kyouya-senpai, please wake up." she called from beside him, this time only getting a slight twitch from him. Sighing for what felt like the millionth time that morning, Haruhi raised an arm to shake him. As Haruhi began to shake the sleeping shadow king she found herself dragged in to the bed.
"Kyouya-senpai!" Haruhi squeaked as she found herself face to face with a groggy, and not to thrilled looking Kyouya. Scowling Kyouya glanced at the clock to confirm what time it was and muttered something about it being too early in the morning for such nonsense. However he did not release Haruhi, but instead closed his eyes and snuggled to her, this in turn caused Haruhi to turn a delightful shade of crimson.
"Kyouya-senpai..." Haruhi began as she tried to keep her voice even." The rest of the Host Club is waiting for us. Plus we need to get out of this bed."
"Negative." was Kyouya's reply as he only snuggled tighter to her.
"What, why not?!" squeaked Haruhi as she squirmed in Kyouya's arms. Sighing Kyouya opened his eyes to look at Haruhi. Belatedly Haruhi realized exactly how close she was to Kyouya as she felt his breath warm against her skin and turned a deeper shade of red.
"Well if you must know. One, it's too early in the morning for one of Tamaki's foolish ideas. Two, I refuse to move from this bed until one of them grows balls big enough to make me. And three, your rather snuggly so I'm going back to sleep and keeping you." after saying this Kyouya closed his eyes and snuggled to Haruhi once again, refusing to let her go. Once again Haruhi sighed, but this was a sigh of contentment. She figured since she was stuck she might as well make the most of it. She closed her eyes and allowed herself to enjoy Kyouya's warmth, slowly beginning to fall asleep. The last thought she had was that it wasn't so bad to have to wake the shadow king.
Meanwhile, out in the hallway the twins were playing a wonderful game of torture the King while Hunny and Mori sat in the limo wondering where everyone went.
