Chapter 1: Out of my League: Welcome to Summoner's Rift!
"Gwah!" I groaned as I stumbled and hit the cold hard ground. Out of some goddess' spite, I ended up getting warped into different dimensions and realities. Each world was unique and each time I ended up in a world where my presence is terribly unwelcome. How many years has it been already? A few centuries? I can't remember. All I know is that I am lucky to be immortal and that I need to find my way back.
"I will get you back for this, Kioku, I swear!"
Looking around, I found that I was in some tall brush of the sorts. I took a peek outside and I saw that I was in some maze like field. I continued to look around but a stepped back as I saw a massive dragon. It seemed to be bound in this rounded barrier of stone with only one opening. The dragon did not seem to notice me. I took a closer look and it was completely ignoring me, as if I weren't here.
I was about to try and poke it with my dagger when all of a sudden, two ethereal ey

Chapter 2: Out of my League: A Good Enough Reason
I said that I would give my answer in a week. I do not know whether I had spent my week wisely or not. The whole time, I had the routine of watching her concert or trying to take a peek at what goes on in the field of justice. I tried to understand more about it. It seems that it was up to the summoner's on how they wish the champion to perform, in accordance to the Summoner's Code. It often bothers me when both teams have a champion that is the same with the other. What kind of sorcery happens in it? Do they retain memories of their battles? If so, would they remember fighting with themselves? Isn't that a form of suicide. However, my thoughts about the league tend to go down the drain whenever the opportunity presented itself that I could spent even just a few minutes of time with Sona. In the beginning, I would only meet her every after concert. The first few days pretty much resembled such activity. A few days after though, I manage

A/N: If anyone has any questions as to who Reiku actually is and what his abilities really are, I'll be glad to enlighten you.
I squirmed about on the snow as I felt a burning sensation on my chest. Strangely enough, there was no particular damage, only a slight tinge of pain from where she had struck me. I got up and saw that she was glaring at me, with her arms around her as she faced away from me defensively. I thought that it was quite humorous.
"What are you doing?" I asked her as I dusted off the snow from my clothes. I felt the cold seep into my sleeves so I shook it off as I waited for her reply.
"Just stay away from me," she replied and still glared at me. "I don't know what you're planning or how you brought me here but I'm warning you, don't you dare come near me."
"Hold on," I was confused. I scratched my head in confusion. "You are Ahri, right? I had the thought that you weren't one of the conservative types. Also, I'm just a

"A-are you sure it's fine?" I asked her as she opened the door.
"I-I told you already," Sona blushed as she looked up at me. "You agreed to live together for the meantime, yes?"
"I know but," I averted my gaze as the doorway opened and paved the way to her bedroom. "You never said we'd have to share a room."
It was a bit awkward that night. We were apart by a few inches with our backs to each other. I couldn't sleep. And somehow, I think she couldn't too. I, for now, I enjoyed the warmth we shared under the covers, though we are apart.
"This was...not exactly what I expected," I heard her voice. She sounded somewhat amused.
"What were you expecting?" I chuckled and turned around. She still had her back to me so I moved closer. I then placed my arms around her and leaned my head on her hair. I nuzzled her hair gently. The fragrance of her hair was breathtaking. The smooth texture of her ears on her head was...wait. What?
I lifted the covers

Chapter 10: Out of my League: Archetype Lusus Naturae
I was hesitant at first, the words of the self proclaimed goddess burned guilt into my heart and my will wavered for that time. However, Sona helped me resolve this inner conflict, without the use of words. Just a simple smile and a soft tender kiss.
In the highest peak of danger, one will find himself with the strongest resolve to fight extinction. In the face of death. one's will to live will be at its fullest. In the deepest of our sorrows did we find the height of our passion in full bloom. In the heat of the moment, we left all our regrets and let go of those hesitations that held us back.
Drenched from the rain, we disrobed and shared a bath. There was but silence and we could only glance at each others' eyes for a moment before averting our gaze. Bare to each other, the heat rises, but slowly like the water heated for our bath. I went in first and leaned against the edge of the metal tub filled with warm water and soap. She f

Chapter 8: Out of my League: Shot Through the Heart and You're to Blame
"You're going where?!" The half dragon was shaking me when I had told her where I wanted to head off to. Even Sona and Ahri seemed to agree with Shyvana.
"I have to fix something there, it won't take long," I tried to calm them down. "I promise I'll be back soon."
"If it's about that redheaded bloodthirsty champion, you might as well forget about it," Ahri tried to convince me.
"Besides, why do you have to go to her anyway?" Sona asked. I can tell she's in a mix of worry and anger at the moment. I really owe her, big time.
"I agree, what's your excuse?" Shyvana repeated. Wait.
"Hold on, how can you hear Sona?" I asked Shyvana. I think I just bought myself some time.
"W-well, that's not exactly easy to explain," she turned away and avoided my gaze. At the same time, Sona and Ahri seemed to look someplace else as well.
"Well, if you don't tell me, I'm just going to assume you three had some fun while I was out cold,"
