13 Coffee Break "I'm Nitori Aiichirou!" the boy introduced himself cheerily. The redhead wasn't sure what to think about this newcomer, since it was barely breaching seven and he was already this enthusiastic. Not many people he knew would be this happy so early in the morning, and the ones he did know were a little unscrewed in the head.

14 Between the Lines Rei was in the middle of drinking his beverage when Haruka appeared in front of the table suddenly and silently, as he was apt to do. His bright blue eyes swept over Rei once, and the end of his fluffy tail twitched very slightly. In a completely flat and disinterested tone, he said, "Nagisa's in heat."

4 Fixation Rei laced their fingers together firmly. The taller boy's hands were so much bigger than his. The warm lotion between their hands felt mildly gross at first, but once Rei began to roll his fingers and palms against his, the feeling changed completely.

8 Unexpectedly Sweet Before, Aiichirou would have never thought that Rin, who always looked so severe and frightening, was capable of doing such stupid and silly things too. Now, he knew better than that, but it didn't mean he didn't laugh every time Rin let his guard down and humored him in this way.

12 Checking Out Bright eyes looked up at him from behind the door. Rei distinctly felt the shorter man's gaze drag up and down him thoroughly. He supposed this was what it was like to be "checked out." The man grinned at him.

13 Aggressive Study Habits "Hey, Rei-chan," he called out while fiddling with his pencil carelessly. "I think it'd be nice if you were more aggressive sometimes. I mean, it's not like you aren't ever aggressive or anything but, like…. You should be more aggressive when we have sex."

15 Unconventional It's Makoto's birthday, and Nagisa knows he's been incredibly stressed out lately. As a result, Nagisa and Rei (but mostly Nagisa) decide to get a special present for him. It's not a conventional birthday present or stress-relief method by any means, but maybe it'll work out better than planned.

7 You'd Think They'd Never Part While Aiichirou scrambles around to get ready for a school trip, Rin sits around, watches him make a mess, and implicitly wonders if the kid's a lost cause when it comes to these things.

4Because You Understand Too The two of them were able to understand each other. They noticed each other looking at their teammates with longing expressions which were more than enough proof of lingering affection. They would smile at each other then, knowingly and painfully, though they never said it aloud. "They don't like you back, do they?" But they understood even without the words.

7 There's No Mistaking It Nagisa was the one who caught him off guard at first, having approached him so suddenly and insistently. Rei hadn't been prepared on many levels, and it took him a while to get used to the blond's rambunctious and happy-go-lucky attitude, but once he did, he knew his life was over and there was no mistaking it.

2 Conversations at Half-past Four "Can you explain it one more time?" Rei's eyes followed the soft curls of hair which fell into Nagisa's face. His hand came up to push them back. "Explain what, Nagisa-kun?" Nagisa's eyebrows furrowed ever-so-slightly. He moved even closer. "You know," he said, eyelashes fluttering as he blinked. "About your asexuality thing."

7 Sugar-Spun Kisses "I've been wondering for a while," the taller boy said, his hand resting on the side of Nagisa's neck warmly, "but why are you always giggling when we kiss?" Nagisa tilted his and raised his eyebrows. He hummed as he thought about his answer. "I'unno. I guess it's because I'm so happy when I'm with Rei-chan?" he grinned.

9 My Favorite Place Is Next to You Nagisa followed Rei everywhere, and Rei let him. Rei let him until he didn't, and Nagisa didn't know what to do.

5 Three-Fourths Cotton, One-Fourth Polyester Nagisa looked proudly over to Rei and lifted his head to let the scarf fall away from his nose and mouth. The grin he had on his face lasted for a second before he turned his head toward the sky and took in a deep breath. A particularly nippy breeze bypassed them. Nagisa drew his shoulders in again and shivered. Rei thought he looked like a penguin hunching over for warmth.

5 Sixteen Point Five Percent He knew something was up, because the blonde looked like he was just promised a lifetime supply of free strawberry shortcakes. Rei didn't have a good feeling about it, but he still cautiously ventured into Nagisa's trap.

6 Paradigm of Aesthetics When they first started dating, Rei had told Nagisa that he was asexual, which really confused him. Being a hormonally active boy himself, Nagisa couldn't quite wrap his mind around what Rei meant. The taller boy had tried so many times to explain to him and, while he got it, he didn't really get it.

6Entropy Theory Although he was usually brimming with what Rin considered useless energy, next to Nagisa, who had even more useless energy, Aiichirou was getting quickly overpowered by Nagisa's strong personality.

9 Find Me a Better Tomorrow It wasn't until he couldn't breathe in anything but searing saltwater that he learned to fear. It wasn't supposed to be like this. The night had been so calm only minutes ago, so he couldn't understand why things had come to this point.

9 Addendum (I would like to pretend there's actually a plot that follows this story, but there isn't. It's just really kinky and explicit sex. I'm so sorry about this...)
