Around 10 o'clock, there was a knock on Takanori's sliding glass door. "Hey Kou, Come on in~" the short bleached blonde whispered.
"Thanks." Kouyou smiled and took off his shoes outside then closed the door behind them. Quietly, they tip-toed up the stairs and they soon got up to Takanori's room. The younger's room had plain white walls but yet they had colorful posters scattered across them. The posters had things ranging from bands to motorcycles (something he didn't really want to have in his room). There were simple furnishings in the room: a TV, a dresser, a bed, some game consoles and matching games, a beanbag chair, and tatami mat floors. Kouyou set down his medium sized overnight bag on his friend's floor and started digging into it.
"Kouyou-Chan, whatcha doing there, ne?" Takanori had popped in the said "all new 2 player" game without hesitation and was sitting on his bed, facing the honey-blonde's back.
"Ah ha!" Kouyou pulled out a plastic bag filled with things in wrappers. "I stopped by the convenience store on my way over and picked us up some sweets." He held up the victory bag and plopped the assorted candies and two popsicles on the bed. "It's been a while since we've had a sleepover, so I wanted to make it count." Kouyou grinned. "We only have so many more times to do crazy things like this before we have to grow up."
Takanori's eyes lit up. "Thank you Thank you, Kou-Chan!" he stood up and reached for the popsicle closest to him. He smiled up at taller then hugged him tightly. Takanori relished in these moments especially now since Kouyou wasn't exactly free property anymore.
Kouyou smiled. "You're welcome, Taka." Kouyou put his arms around Takanori in return. The bleached blonde smiled and looked up to Kouyou, expecting to see nothing but pale skin and a beautiful smile on his way there. But, on the way up his eyes rested on a dark purple mark that decorated the honey blonde's neck. This aroused Takanori's interest.
"Kou-Chan… what happened to your neck?"Takanori was deeply concerned. Who was the punk who did this to him? No one would touch his Kouyou! And who would punch him in such a bizarre place as the ne- oh… wait a minute.
"Oh… um…" Kouyou was blushing scarlet all the way to his collarbones. Takanori looked at the mark on his neck that was now clearly a hickey. He felt sick. Suzuki did this to him didn't he? "Aki and I…"
"You had sex." Takanori's voice was bitter, maybe even more so than he wanted to sound.
"No!" Kouyou covered his face for a second then uncovered it. "Well… we came close to it but not-"
"Kouyou how could you do something so stupid?!" he shouted, not caring if he woke up his mom at this point. Kouyou stood there looking wide-eyed at his best friend. Takanori had never snapped at him like that before.
"W-what do you mean, Taka?" the honey blonde looked at the shorter quizzically. "Was this not his idea to get us together?" Kouyou thought.
"You can't just hop into bed with the first boy you date!" Takanori said more quietly, but still strong enough to stun Kouyou.
Kouyou lowered his eyebrows. "Taka… but this is Akira we're talking about. We've been friends for years… even before you and I met. I trust him completely and… I guess this was just a sign that we could handle a big step like that."
Takanori sighed and turned on his heel away from the honey blonde. "I know. Don't remind me…. Look, I just don't want you getting hurt, Kouyou. This is your first relationship. Sure you know how Akira acts as your best friend, but people can change under different circumstances. He may be way different as a lover. At least remember that." Kouyou gasped quietly as Takanori sat down on his bed grabbing the now softer than before Popsicle. He only concentrated on the frozen treat, as if his eyes would pop out otherwise. Kouyou sighed and took the other Popsicle that was by Takanori's side cautiously and put it in his mouth.
After about a good 10 minutes of rather awkward silence, a night filled with video games, laughter, and lots of candy ensued. The boys played well into 5 in the morning, not getting any sleep in the night. The boys were then lying on Takanori's bed slightly drifting to sleep.
Takanori yawned and leaned his head against Kouyou's shoulder. "Kou-Kun… we shouldn't have stayed up that late…" the shorter teen yawned and rubbed his eyes.
"I-I know, Taka, but I couldn't help myself… we were having fun…" Kouyou was slipping out of his consciousness.
"I know, hun but we need to get ready for the pit of hell this morning so yeah." Takanori slurred on his words as he stumbled to the bathroom to most likely pee at this time. Kouyou layed in the big bed and rolled for a while, thinking up methods to wake him up. A few minutes lauter and Takanori came out of the bathroom in his school uniform and nicely brushed hair. "Kou, honey, upy-time." The younger put his hand on Kouyou's stomach and pushed. Kouyou groaned and rolled over. "God, you're helpless sometimes."
He went over to the honey blonde's bag and looked for his school uniform, but the garment was not found. "Kou, did you forget your uniform?"
Kouyou's body laid there until it suddenly jolted up in surprise. "Fuck! The washer!"
"I washed my uniform last night and I forgot to take it with me!" Kouyou packed up the things that he had taken out of his bag the previous night. "I have to go home and grab it before my parents notice!" he slung the heavy bag over his shoulders and ran down the stairs.
"Good luck!~" Takanori giggled as he watched his friend struggle to get the sliding glass door open. After the angry duck had left the house, Takanori sighed and stared at the screen door. "Cutie, what am I going to do with you?" he giggled and continued to get ready for school.
