(James Centauros is owned by Weenieteenie)
It was a pretty day in Primp Town and a date was afoot. Between who? James Centauros and Raffina. James and Raffina had known each other for a few months ever since James joined Raffina’s class; some think that James and Raffina are friends as Raffina was uncharacteristically nicer to James than with anyone else.
Despite James being the one to ask Raffina on a date Raffina decided that she should be in charge of the date as she’s a proper lady who knows how to do a date; James wasn’t surprised by this as Raffina was always quite confident and wouldn’t have it any other way.
James neared the town hall; the meeting spot. James nervously adjusted his newly acquired hat that he had put on to appear more presentable to Raffina who he had a major crush on. His heart swelled with his love for Raffina; his heart beating quickly with excitement as he approached the town hall; he knew that this date was his chance no, his ONLY chance to be able to get Raffina to accept his feelings.
As he approached the town hall, he noticed Raffina standing there as poised as ever; this made James’s heart beat faster as every step he took intensified his love for her; he knew he had to leave behind all doubt and go forth.
Raffina noticed James approaching; her blue eyes locked on his form like a padlock. Raffina had been feeling most oddly around James and she wasn’t sure what this feeling was; the feeling would only arise when James was near and Raffina was perplexed as to what it was as it wouldn’t go until he left. The feeling made her be somewhat nice towards James and Raffina was determined to find out what this feeling was and why it was a member of the Centauros family (a family she cared little about before she met James) that brought this feeling about.
It was a pleasant surprise when James semi-confidently asked her on a date as she knew that this date could reveal the identity of this feeling like a curtain being pulled apart to reveal the sun. Raffina felt this strange desire to want the date to be successful and she wasn’t one to back down from a challenge as she was certain that she was talented enough to make this date work.
“Ohohohoho~ so you’ve finally arrived James!” Raffina said pointing at him “this date will show you my unparalleled strength and beauty!” James bowed as to make a good first impression “H-hello Raffina” James said trying to keep his composure “Ahem. Are you ready for our date Raffina? I am.”
“Ohohohoho~ I’m always ready!” Raffina stated confidently “for my gracefulness never falters!” James smiled as he enjoyed seeing Raffina’s smile as it shone like the sun; James realised he was distracting himself and he quickly made sure that he was focused on the date as Raffina appeared to be a bit impatient. “Shall we start the date?” James asked; wanting no further delay and this desire was mutual with Raffina. “Yes! Onwards!” Raffina commanded as she and James made way to the first location of the date with James trying to keep up with Raffina who was walking quickly.
Raffina and James arrived at the location; a public campfire! It was rather large, and the fire was like a spire; there was a large tub of marshmallows that people were helping themselves to so that they could roast the marshmallows over the fire. “Tee-hee~” Raffina said; impressed at the size of the fire “it’s even bigger than last year’s; come James! Let’s get some marshmallows!” Raffina grabbed James’ hand not realising that this made him blush deeply “Y-yes Raffina” James said as he tried to keep everything together.
They had each roasted about two marshmallows before more and more people arrived at fast rate which made it more and more difficult for them to get near the campfire and roast a marshmallow; it was like trying to get through a herd of buffalo.
“Gah! It’s no use!” Raffina said as she tried to get through; she turned to see James heading towards the marshmallows “James? What are you doing?” James turned to Raffina in response with an enthusiastically kind look on his face. “When I was younger me and Draco always used to roast marshmallows by using our fire breath” James explained slowly; knowing that this would be a crucial moment in the date “here, let me do one for you.”
James faced away from Raffina (as to not accidently burn her) and he spewed fire at the marshmallow which roasted it to perfection as the flames danced across the surface of the marshmallow. Not realising that Raffina had come closer James turned and he accidently shoved the marshmallow into Raffina’s mouth. Once he had realised what he had done James became incredibly flustered. Oh no! How was he going to alleviate the date!?
“Mmm” Raffina said as she tasted the marshmallow; normally she’d be outraged if someone were to shove a marshmallow into her mouth, but the strange feeling struck again and was stronger than before. Raffina was surprised that she felt no ill will towards James for his action and the only things she felt was the odd feeling and the exquisite taste of the Marshmallow in her mouth as she ate it what on Earth was this feeling and how could it overpower her?
“Not bad” Raffina said whilst internally trying to understand what just happened to her; “Thank you” James replied; sighing with relief “To be honest I thought I was a bit rust-““another one!” “H-huh?” “you heard me: another one!” James did as Raffina demanded; not knowing about Raffina’s internal conflict and he quickly roasted this marshmallow as Raffina was known for her impatience.
As James returned to Raffina he noticed Amitie who was approaching cheerfully, and the dating duo turned to face her. “Hey you two! What are you doing?” Amitie naively asked “roasting marshmallows?” “Ohohohoho~ James and I are on a date!” Raffina declared; taking the marshmallow stick from James’ hand “He’s marvelling at my beauty aren’t you James?” James quickly and honestly nodded as Raffina values her beauty highly and he didn’t want to disappoint her.
“Get real! Really?” Amitie said; surprised that the two were on a date “Though I did hear from Sig that you looked at James a lot in class” Raffina was shocked to hear this; how dare Sig disclose that information about her; this could ruin her reputation! A proper lady such as herself shouldn’t have been found out by someone like Sig!
“R-ridiculous! I’d never do that!” Raffina yelled unconvincingly and Amitie and James gave her a doubtful look. Knowing that her words couldn’t convince the two Raffina knew what she had to do to get the date back on track.
“Let’s settle the truth in Puyo!” Raffina shouted; pointing at Amitie with an annoyed expression on her face. “W-wait! Don’t spring another Puyo battle on me!” Amitie said feebly as the Puyo battle commenced.
Raffina fought strongly to show off to James and to distract him from the information that Amitie had revealed. Amitie on the other hand wasn’t doing so well since Raffina sprung the Puyo battle on her rather quickly and she struggled to do well.
Predictably Raffina won and James clapped supportively. “Ohohohoho~ See James?” Raffina said; doing a stylish victory pose “This is why I have the title of ‘best pretty girl’!” Amitie was a bit upset at her defeat, but she realised that it was just a ploy by Raffina so that her pride would remain intact.
“Wow Raffina you were amazing!” James said; very much impressed by the way that Raffina performed in that Puyo battle and he was impressed by all of the moves she did. “Tee-hee~ I’m the definition of amazing” Raffina said; grinning “And don’t you forget it!”
“I hope the date goes well” Amitie said supportively and as she left, she gave James a nod; wishing him good luck and he smiled in response to this.
“Hey Raffina, could you teach me how to play Puyo?” James asked shyly “I’m… not very good at it.” Raffina thought about it for a moment; she didn’t like being asked to do something, but the way James looked at her made her heart pound and the odd feeling stronger. However, what convinced Raffina was that training James would make her stronger and that people would give her more respect. “Ohohoho~ of course!” Raffina said; once again pointing her finger at James “I needed the training anyway.”
The two of them were travelling to the next location and James felt relieved that all was going somewhat well, and he felt quite joyful; maybe just maybe he’ll be successful with this date. The thought that he could succeed filled him with determination and as he walked behind Raffina he wondered how she would take his confession.
The two of them arrived at a sort of Puyo training ground and Raffina made James set up the training equipment as she stood and watched. Once the equipment was set up James decided to show Raffina what he could do within the game of Puyo. After a short amount of time the problem became apparent; James didn’t know how to rotate the Puyos.
“James” Raffina said; giggling quietly to herself “you do know how to rotate the Puyos right?” James immediately felt anxious by these words; was the date ruined? “N-no?” James replied nervously which made Raffina laugh. “You seriously don’t know?” Raffina said “and I thought Amitie was the sleepy one.”
Raffina paused suddenly; her next line stuck in her throat; she somehow felt terrible for saying that but why? As Raffina looked at James and his expression made this feeling of guilt stronger. How could this happen to a proper lady like herself? Raffina shook her head knowing what she had to do to stop this feeling of guilt; she must do what she has never done; helping someone for no reward.
“James” Raffina said; still feeling guilty “I’ll teach you how to rotate the Puyos; my way!” this lit James up with happiness and he flapped his wings happily.
Raffina braced herself and James did the same. “Follow my movements!” Raffina said and she performed a Tatsumaki spinning kick that James tried and failed to do, and his attempt led to him falling over. Raffina sighed as James helped himself up and when he did James felt two hands seize his waist strongly and once he knew that it was Raffina he blushed profusely.
“Ohohoho~ I have you now James!” Raffina said “now do it again! But slower!” James did as she asked, and James did the Tatsumaki with Raffina making sure that he didn’t fall over by firmly holding both sides of his waist. After some time, James had successfully mastered Raffina’s technique and he was now able to rotate the puyos.
“Look! Look! I can do it now!” James said; his heart filled with joy “Thanks Raffina!” Raffina felt proud of James’s progress and she must it admit she did enjoy herse- wait proud? This was new for Raffina; she had never felt proud of anyone before and yet here she was proud of James’s usage of her Tatsumaki skill. Raffina’s thoughts were disrupted by James embracing her and this caused Raffina to blush deeply “You’re a great teacher Raffina” James said; unaware of Raffina’s blushing. “O-of course I’m the perfect teacher for you” Raffina said trying to keep her composure as the odd feeling grew once more “after all I am the most beautiful and talented.”
As the two stayed like that for a while Raffina noticed that she was blushing. Blushing? Like in the love stories she had read? Could it be? Raffina pondered this for a while and it did make sense as the guilt she had felt must’ve been fuelled by this odd emotion. Was it truly love? Raffina was in a state of uncertainty; was it love or not? As Raffina thought about this she noticed that the sun was descending like the mist that hid the identity of the odd emotion; fading to reveal love.
Raffina freed herself from James’s embrace and she knew that to be certain that this feeling was love she must complete the date, and only then would she be certain. “James! Onwards!” Raffina tenaciously commanded. “Is it to the last part of the date?” James asked enthusiastically; the date was had lasted a long time and he was incredibly hopeful that the date would be a success. “Of course!” Raffina replied “A proper lady like me knows the best place to end the date!”
As they travelled to the location; James adjusted his hat as he wanted his confession to be perfect; he had memorised the script he made for his confession by heart and he didn’t want to leave a single word out of it. He looked at Raffina and then to the path ahead and Holy Summit; a place which is said to be the best place to stargaze came into view. James walked on while he recited the script in his thoughts.
As they turned the corner the duo stopped and before them stood Klug; a sinister smile on his face. “Klug…” Raffina said contemptuously as she wasn’t expecting him to be here and now that he was, she was immediately angry. “I heard that the once high “princess” had fallen for a mere commoner” Klug said scornfully. “At least he isn’t cattle like you!” Raffina shot back fiercely. Klug was unsettled and taken aback that was a good comeback “W-what? I’m not cattle!” Klug feebly replied, “of course you are!” James said, “all you do is wallow in an attempt to get Lemres’s attention!”
The three of them stood there; the discontent lingering strongly. “Let’s settle this!” Raffina said; pointing angrily at Klug who got into a battle stance “Settle it in Puyo!” Klug shouted back.
The battle commenced and it was extremely fast paced; each of them fiercely using the puyos in order to get the advantage. James stood baffled at the highly skilled game of Puyo that was being played before him. After a gruelling set of manoeuvres and several fever modes Raffina had the high ground and she let out her signature “Ohohoho~” laugh as Klug scrambled to recover.
Raffina won and James cheered for her “Aren’t I the best James?” Raffina asked rhetorically but James nodded anyway. However instead of being upset Klug laughed to himself which caught the attention of Raffina and James. “It’s as I suspected” Klug said before raising his voice “you’re using that bag to amplify your magic; how deplorable!” Raffina was shocked as her secret was revealed like a sin and Klug laughed mockingly at Raffina.
This angered James and he furiously marched over to Klug who was preparing to leave; satisfied with what he had done. “Listen here specky!” James shouted “Apologise for wh- “he was interrupted by Klug walking away. “I have better things to do than talk to Raffina’s pet” he said venomously; this increased James’s rage and he quickly spewed fire at Klug’s behind. This caused Klug’s trousers to catch on fire and this caused Klug to run away with his trousers on fire.
Raffina watched as Klug ran away and she was certain that what she was feeling was love; yes, it was love and as she looked at James, she knew that he was the one for her; the light to her darkness. Raffina’s love was blazing strongly as James turned and walked towards her; would James still see her the same way now that her secret was out?
James cupped Raffina’s left cheek “It’s okay Raffina” James said comfortingly “I know this was hard for you but I am here and I’ll care for you; you have nothing to be ashamed of” “J-james i-I” “Shh it’s okay I don’t mind that you use your bag to help your magic; as you’re already magical to me.” The two of them embraced strongly as the night sky rose with its many stars shining upon the two.
Raffina and James ceased their hug and Raffina held out her hand and James took it and they set off to the last part of the date. James’ love was swelling as they were almost at Holy Summit and this was shared by Raffina who held James’ hand tightly; who knew that a proper lady like herself would be in love with someone from the Centauros family?
Raffina sighed happily as they neared the last couple of steps to Holy Summit; this day had been a rollercoaster of emotions for Raffina; emotions she didn’t usually feel; perhaps with James she would discover more things. Yes, there was something about James that brought her new experiences; if she stayed with him more often perhaps, she would discover more things; besides that cute face of his was a pleasant sight for Raffina to see even though she considered herself to be the most beautiful.
They arrived at Holy Summit and the stars were glistening; perfect for ending a date. James released himself from Raffina’s hold and he stood in front of her and he motioned for Raffina to remove his hat. Raffina did so and underneath there was a present which had a pretty pink ribbon; Raffina took it from James’ head and looked at how carefully wrapped it was and she smiled brightly; wondering what was inside this present. “Tee-hee~ let’s see here” Raffina said as she unwrapped the present carefully and Raffina gasped as she lifted the golden tiara out of the wrapping. The tiara shone beautifully in the moonlight and it was studded with pink diamonds that resonated with love.
Raffina put the tiara on and she got out a mirror; Raffina was astonished because this tiara made her look more beautiful and this made Raffina incredibly glad and she hummed happily as she adjusted the tiara and put away her mirror.
James watched Raffina nervously; did she like it? He wondered as he awaited some kind of response from his crush.
Raffina realised that she didn’t bring anything to give to James; darn it! What was she going to do? She wanted to show her love for him with an even greater gift but how? She didn’t have one on her! Raffina thought deeply about how she could fix this problem when suddenly her stomach let out a loud groan as if it were answering her problem.
Raffina gripped James’ sides tightly and she pulled him close and she kissed James passionately and strongly which made the two of them blush deeply as their love danced merrily during that moment. Raffina finished her long and hard kiss; James was speechless due to the strong kiss he had received as it felt amazing.
Raffina took this chance to quickly plunge James’ head into her mouth and she began to swallow him slowly and talentedly. Raffina moaned softly due to his flavour as he tasted even better than the marshmallows that she had eaten earlier that day.
James was slowly but surely swallowed and Raffina enjoyed the feeling of swallowing James; she was glad that she was experiencing this sensation. James was enjoying himself too as he listened to the sounds around him as he was being swallowed.
Soon with one final gulp James had been completely swallowed and Raffina watched as her belly grew to accommodate James. Raffina’s belly flumped over her orange skirt and Raffina lifted her belly up and she kissed it before letting it flump once again.
“Raffina, I-I’ve always admired your beauty” James began “and the way you laugh and the way you play Puyo is so mesmerising; R-Raffina I am yours if you desire me to be so; W-will you be my girlfriend?” James waited patiently and nervously for Raffina’s response when suddenly Raffina sat down and she hugged her belly passionately and she nuzzled the top of her belly.
“Ohohoho~ of course!” Raffina said as she nuzzled the top of her belly “after all you had the courage to ask me; the most beautiful and graceful girl to a date” “Does this mea-“ “yes James I shall be your beautiful girlfriend.”
James was overjoyed by this news and as he was thinking about his victory, he felt Raffina patting the bulge that his head made. James decided to relax in Raffina’s belly knowing that his crush accepted his feelings and he was happy that he was in Raffina’s belly as it was so comfortable that James felt like he didn’t want to leave.
Raffina’s stomach walls hugged James tightly and Raffina’s stomach noises sounded like an orchestra of long and short; loud and quiet; stomach noises which James found to be quite relaxing and he closed his eyes and listened to the stomach noises that he was hearing.
Raffina lied down with her eyes focused on her big belly; she was satisfied with this belly of hers as it made her look even more beautiful. Raffina looked up at the stars; she didn’t know when she would let James out, but she knew that he was staying with her all night.
Raffina let out a loud belch which echoed throughout the area and she watched the stars as she listened to the sounds of her stomach. Raffina was grateful for the date and she knew that James would be visiting her belly a lot in the years to come.
It truly was a great date.
