I stared outside the window of my room as watched the rain fall. A tear dropped from my eye and ran down my face. The salty taste of tears lingered at my lip. More tears streamed down and I couldn't help myself but cry my heart out.
It all started when me and Mikoto broke up. He said that our relationship would distract him since he's the king. I understand his situation so I had no choice but to break up with him. Loving him started out so great, so beautiful, so red. But I have we have to wait for the right time to start our relationship, since that's what Mikoto said. We still loved each other dearly.
The first time we made love was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you. I never want to let him go. I want him and I need him so much. I remembered every single moment we've been together. The time we had our first confession, our first date and our first anniversary. They were all pr

I walked in the midnight winter road with Mikoto by my side. My teeth were chattering from the cold as I dug my mittened hands into the pockets of my jacket.
"Damn it... It's so cold..." I shivered.
I looked at Mikoto who was smoking calmly, not even affected by the cold. How does he manage to stay warm!? He only wore a jacket and no mittens. So I wonder how does he keep himself warm...
Mikoto stared at me with his piercing eyes. "Are you cold?" He asked.
"Huh? Oh, n-n-no... I'm f-fine..." I shivered.
Mikoto sighed and draped his arm over my shoulder as he brought me closer to me. I was surprised but my mind calmed down when I started to feel warm. I looked at my hand and noticed the red aura surrounding me and Mikoto. He must have shared his warmth with me...
I smiled and leaned my head to Mikoto's shoulder as we continued walking in the winter cold night.

Sighing, I placed the tea cup down on the table tasting the fresh taste of Reisi's jasmine herbal tea. Now that completely lowered my thumping head ache... I was in Reisi's office just for a nice break and a welcoming chat to get my mind off of things.
"So how is your boyfriend?" Reisi asked me as he took a sip of his tea.
"Oh... He's fine, as usual. He never changed." I smiled.
"Is it really alright for you to come here?" Reisi raised an eyebrow. "You know he would be furious if he found out that you're here with me."
"So you don't want me to visit an old friend?" I furrowed my eyebrows.
"No no... I don't mind that. But I'm cautious about what he might do to you."
"He would never do anything to me. I'm his girlfriend right? He never even dared to hurt me."
Suddenly, a loud bang came from the door of the office as the door flew out of its hinges. Smoke of dust filled in the room as it showed the silhouette of a fimiliar person. Red aura were shown around the

Our lips collided with lust and passion, tongues twisted as they fought inside our mouths. The adrenaline rush of our bodies were pounding like bricks, like we wanted more of this adrenaline rush. It was so hot. So hot that my legs trembled.
Basking from his touch, I moaned when he touched my sensitive parts. Everywhere in my body he touched, it felt like heaven. I wanted him. I wanted him a lot. More than anything in the world, he's the only thing I want.
Every time we touched or kissed, I always think in my mind that it was wrong, so wrong that I'm blaming myself for this, but it felt so right.

"Mikoto-san," I called from his private room upstairs from the HOMRA bar. I went inside to see Mikoto napping on the couch with Anna by his side. Mikoto opened one of his eyes and sat up.
"What is it?" He said as he leaned his elbow on the arm rest of the couch. Anna still sat there and listened.
I showed him a paper with questions. "Could you answer some 10 questions for me in my questionnaire? It's my homework."
Mikoto sighed and scooted closer to Anna on the couch. He patted the open space for me to sit. I did, and sat next to him.
"Okay, first question, do you watch anime?"
"What's your fighting skill?"
"Can you answer something else other than that?"
"Fine. Hand-to-hand combat then."
"Good. What animal do you like?"

The room felt cold and quiet. The concrete walls surround me, isolated from everything around me. It was all my fault. I have to do it for her. All I wanted for her is to keep her safe, and I have to experience this loneliness again without her.
I rolled to my sides, facing away the cell door from where I'm sleeping. I couldn't stop thinking about her. But I had to leave her. Thought it was still my fault. Leaving her in Reisi's hands, it was stupid. Why did I leave her? I couldn't stop thinking about it!
"Mikoto." A voice whispered. My eyes shot open. I quickly sat up straight and faced the person. Her beautiful bright orbs shown right in front of me, she held a frown on her face as she stared at me with innocent eyes. "Are you okay?" Her voice was light and smooth. I missed that voice so dearly.
"_... Why are you here? Aren't you suppose to be with Reisi." I spoke.

I think I became the luckiest girl in the world. Izumo called me this morning that Mikoto mysteriously turned into a mutant human cat thing and he asked me to take care of him while him and the other HOMRA members search for the person who mutated their own king.
I arrived in the HOMRA bar to see Mikoto's back facing me as he was drinking a glass of milk. My eyes scanned him when I spotted two red cat ears on his head and a long red tail swaying from left to right.
"Well, you turned adorable." I giggled when I fully entered the building. Mikoto scrawled and finished his milk with one gulp.
And so basically, I don't want to tell the whole thing on what we did together while the HOMRA members are away, but all we did was eat, play yarn and other cat toys, and play a game of pocky.
I caressed the head of Mikoto, touching his soft fiery hair as he was resting his head on my lap. His soft breaths going in and out sounded to peaceful. That's when I saw his tail restin

Well, the personality didn't change. It's still there. The only thing different is his appearance. The HOMARA had fun with him around since he turned into some kind of mutant chibi cat.
I smiled when Mikoto was coiled up on my lap as he slept peacefully. I rubbed his back soothingly and played with his miniature sized hoodie of his miniature sized jacket. It was cute. I hope Mikoto stays like this forever.

"What is it?" He said in a hoarsed voice as he circled his arms around me, pulling me into a hug.
I sighed, smelling the scent of cigarett on his chest. "This might be too sudden, but... Why don't we try to make a baby?"

You were always there for me, always there to comfort me, always there to give me warmth and gentleness. You were everything. The way you smile and the way you laugh always makes me happy. Through all those years, we've been close friends. You never left my side and I never left yours, since thats what friends are suppose to do.
Ever since we were young, you would always ask if I liked you. I was stupid back then, so I didn't know what kind of 'like' you were talking about. I thought it was a friend thing, so I said that I like you because you were my best friend. When I noticed that frown in your face, I wondered what I did wrong.
Our friendship still continued and my classmates from High School thought that you were my girlfriend. It was stupid and embarrassing, so I thought of spending time with other people than you.

It's pretty weird that the only girls playing the game are me and Seri (Anna didn't want to play because Mikoto said so). So does that mean there's Yaoi involving in this game?
"C'mon, get something in the hat." Izumo smiled. I sighed and dug my hand inside the hat. Wow, there's so many things inside since there are a lot of members in the SCEPTER 4.
I picked an item and looked at it to see what it was.
It was a miniature toy skateboard...

I couldn't see a thing through this rain and so I aimlessly walk around in the middle of nowhere to find a place where I would stay for the night.
Far away, I could see a glint of light through the rain. My heart lightened at the sight. Finally! A place to stay for the night!
I raced towards it until I find myself in front of a large mansion. I looked up at it in amazement. I never knew that there was a mansion near my village (if it really is near my village).
