Figured I'd do a dump thread for my one-shot/small series stuff. Here's my first one-shot in quite some time - some cute Misha/Hisao inspired by one of my favorite songs.
We've Got Tonight
Pink. There's pink -everywhere-.
That was the first thought I had upon venturing into Shiina Mikado's room for the first time. We decided to spend the night hanging out in her room, due to the torrential rain outside. If Misha is your stereotypical bubbly girl, it stands to reason her room is the typical girl's room. But this... Damn, this is overkill. Her bed is plastered with stuffed animals, and what little isn't covered in plush is covered in a light pink bedspread. The rest of her room isn't much better."C'mon in, Hicchan~!" I take her up on her invitation, pulling off my rain-soaked jacket and hanging it up alongside hers.
Given our... usual exploits, the bed doesn't remain in said state for very long. Thirty minutes later and I lay behind her, holding her around her bare stomach as we watch whatever movie Misha has picked out this time. My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I think it was. To be quite honest, I've been paying minimal attention, all of my focus on the beautiful woman in front of me.
I think back to how this whole thing started, months ago. Shizune and Misha approached me to get me to join the Student Council. Despite their best efforts, I declined them time and time again. They perservered, though, and eventually, Misha's cuteness and outgoing personality won me over. I joined, if only to spend some more time with her. We hit it off big-time and, well, things were great for quite some time. Tanabata rolled around and I asked her to be with me. Then... Well, things got complicated.
Misha told me about her and Shizune. How she cared about her, and wanted to be with her. How Shizune turned her down, and they agreed to remain friends. I refused to give up, though, and we worked through her issues. For a time, I thought my chance with Misha was gone. I thought I'd lose this gorgeous, happy woman that's laying next to me right now. But, much to my surprise, our relationship blossomed.
Maybe she finally realized she could never have Shizune, and settled for me. I hope not. I prefer to think I helped her through her problems. Maybe she's finally over Shizune, and loves me instead... I don't think I'll ever know what's going on in her pretty, pink-covered head. All I know is, with her next to me, I feel like I could take on the world with one arm tied behind my back.
I nuzzle my face into her long, pink hair, now without its signature curl, and give her a loving squeeze, making her sigh contentedly. I love everything about her. It didn't take long for me to fall for her, but I did. Head over heels. Thing is, I'm still not sure how she feels about me. Despite having had sex multiple times now, I've never actually confessed to her. I'm going to have to make a move soon, though. Graduation looms, and while everyone else is excited, I know it marks a breaking point for us - either I confess to her and brace for whatever comes next, or I let things go and likely lose her.
Not much of a choice, I know, but I'm nothing if not a procrastinator.
It really is an interesting predicament, though. What if she's still healing from Shizune's rejection? What if I've misinterpereted everything, and she just wants to be friends? And what if I don't act? What then?
As if sensing my inner turmoil, Misha turns over slightly to look at me, frown on her face. "Hicchan, are you alright?" she asks, wearing that terrible look of concern and worry. I don't deserve her. I really don't. But I'll take her if I can have her.
"Nothing. Just... just thinking." I respond, probably sounding a lot sadder than I wanted to, based on her reaction. She turns around to face me and surprises me with a kiss. Just a simple one; nothing too passionate or forceful. I return it with all the love I can muster and wrap an arm around her, pulling her closer to me. We lie like this for a while, simply enjoying the moment as long as we can.
Unfortunately, I do have to breathe. I break the kiss for a moment and smile at her, which she returns. That smile makes me feel like a million bucks, every time. I glance at the clock and realize it's already far too late. Past curfew, even. "Damn it... I've gotta get back, Misha. I'm supposed to go run tomorrow with Emi."
Misha gives me her trademark puppy-dog eyes. Oh no, not this. Not tonight. "B-but Hicchan... I want you to stay with me tonight~!" I can't resist that. But damn it, I have to. My health's more important.
"I can't, Misha. I don't have my pills, and I'm supposed to run with Emi, so I need to get some sleep. Plus, if Shizune finds out, we'd be in a world of trouble." That last one's not necessarily true, but a little white lie never hurt.
"Hicchan, it's raining cats and dogs out there~. I don't want you getting sick, and you can just take your pills tomorrow. Plus, Shicchan won't even know! Even if she did, she wouldn't mind~!" Still those damn eyes. Hold out a little longer, man. Almost...
"Misha, I'm sorry. Next time, I promise." I finish getting dressed and turn to grasp the handle when she drops the bomb on me.
"Hisao, please... I need you."
I turn around to see her sitting up in bed, covering her large bust with the blanket, her long, pink locks cascading down her back and across her shoulders. On her face is a look of true sadness, with her almost in tears.
No true man could resist that.
I sigh, defeated and broken, and remove my clothing once again, leaving on my boxers for decency's sake. Misha pumps her fist in victory and makes room for me once again. I join her after turning off the light, give her a good night kiss, and return to my position of holding her from behind.
Not too long after, I hear her whisper, just before sleep overtakes me.
"I love you, Hicchan."
I've never felt better in my life.
