Your heart plummeted the moment you closed the door and realized what you had done. Your mind was too focused on getting your laundry that you failed to grab the key to your apartment that sat on the table inside. It was too late now, though. You now stood locked outside of your apartment, banging your head lightly on the door. It was nearly midnight, your landlord was bound to be asleep by now. The last thing you wanted to do was disturb her, but you also couldn’t stay out in the hallway all night either.
A loud crash from your neighbor’s apartment caught your attention. The apartment next to yours held three extremely loud, but also nice neighbors that you only had the pleasure of meeting two of them at the time. Their apartment was already crowded enough as it is, would they actually let you stay there? It was worth a shot to ask.
Slowly, you walked over to their door, hesitating for a moment before knocking on the door. One of the guys living in the apartment that you had already met answered the door. Maou Sadou was his name if you remembered correctly.
“Oh! (Y/N), right? I’m sorry if you’re here about the noise, we’ll try to quiet it down,” he said quickly, obviously in a rush for something. Before you could reply, an unfamiliar voice cut in.
“We? I’m just sitting here, you’re the one making all the noise,” the person replied, sounding as if he was bored. That must be their other roommate that you haven’t met.
“Shut it, Urushihara!” Maou shouted before turning his attention back to you.
“Oh, um, well I accidentally locked myself out of my apartment so I was wondering if I could stay the night here…. But if it’s not a good time I can go try to wake up our landlord and-”
“No!” he shouted, fear spread across his face. “I mean, you shouldn’t have to bother her. You can stay here for the night.”
“Really? Thank you so much!” You stepped inside and noticed that the newest roommates back was facing the door, only allowing you to see his long, purple hair. The other roommate who you had already met was missing. “Where’s Ashiya?”
“The poor guy got food poisoning so he’s in the hospital right now. Speaking of which, I was planning on going to the hospital to check on him,” he replied, explaining why he looked in a rush. “I would offer you food before I left, but….”
“There’s a reason why Ashiya got food poisoning in the first place,” Urushihara finished, his eyes never leaving his laptop screen. Your eyes grew wide, worried about how old their food had to be to cause Ashiya to get that sick.
“Exactly,” Maou agreed with his roommate sheepishly. “Anyway, I’m heading out to check on Ashiya. You better not bother (Y/N), Urushihara. I swear if you-”
“Yeah, yeah. Whatever,” he replied with a wave of his hand.
Maou let out an annoyed huff before closing the door behind him, leaving you alone with Urushihara in the small apartment. He didn’t say a word to you, but you didn’t want to spend your whole time there in silence.
“So your name’s Urushihara?” you asked, desperately trying to grab a hold of some sort of conversation to pass the time.
“Wow, you’re a smart one,” he quipped, his attention still never leaving the computer screen. You crossed your arms and sighed in annoyance.
“I’m only trying to make conversation.”
“And I’m trying to play a game,” he replied in the same annoyed tone you were using. You turned your back to him and stared out the window, giving all hopes of having a conversation with Urushihara. You watched the rain pour down outside and stared in awe at the lightning bolts flashing around. Out of nowhere, a loud roar of thunder was heard following the biggest lightning bolt you had ever see. Shortly after, the lights in the apartment went out causing a string of curses to come from Urushihara.
“Dammit! The WiFi’s out too and I was in the middle of my game!” he fumed.
“Serves you right,” you muttered.
“What?” he asked angrily, turning to face you the first time since you entered the apartment.
Before you could reply, another loud roar of thunder sounded, causing you to jump away from the window, tripping in the process and falling right next to the purple-haired smartass. You braced yourself for some sort of rude comment to get back at what you said earlier, but it never came. His angered face softened as he looked down at you, even offering you his hand to help you sit up.
“You afraid of thunder?” he asked after you sat up.
“N-no,” you stuttered, still afraid he would make a comment about it. “It just caught me by surprise.”
Another jolt of thunder was heard, causing you to jump and subconsciously wrap your arms around Urushihara for protection.
“Yep, you’re not scared. So you can get off me now,” he replied, a hint of amusement in his voice.
“Okay, fine. I’m scared of thunder. Please, can I hug you? I feel safer….”
He rolled his eyes before sighing in defeat. “Whatever.”
You buried your head in his chest when you heard the next roar of thunder, feeling bad for Urushihara since he seemed somewhat nervous being so close to you. You could hear his heart beating faster and faster the longer you were touching him. You were going to attempt to get over your fear and move away from him when he finally hugged you back, wrapping his arms around your waist. Smiling, you closed your eyes and before you knew it, you had fallen asleep on him.
You woke up only a couple of hours later to find that you were still laying in Urushihara’s arms, himself never getting any sleep.
“So you’re finally awake,” he said with a smile of his own. You nodded, looking out the window with your sleep-induced blurry eyes to find that the rain along with the thunder you feared so much was gone.
“The thunder’s gone, I can move if you-”
“No, it’s fine. I-I actually like your company,” he replied with a slight blush. He laid back so he could finally get some sleep himself, giving you room to lay down next to him, using his arm as a pillow as he wrapped his free arm around your body to keep you warm. With him by your side, the two of you slept for hours, comfortable in each other’s arms.
“Urushihara!” two voices roared, waking the two of you up from your peaceful slumber. Maou and a sickly looking Ashiya stood in the doorway of the apartment, shocked by the sight in front of them.
“What the hell did you do to (Y/N)?!” Maou shouted furiously at his roommate, believing you must’ve been harmed.
“Did you drug the poor girl?” Ashiya questioned, proving he had no faith in the purple-haired boy.
“Drug her?! You seriously think I would do that?!”
“Yes,” Maou and Ashiya answered in unison.
“What the hell, guys?!”
“Why else would a sweet girl like her be so close to you?” Maou shouted once again.
“I don’t know, why is Chiho always so close to you?” Urushihara fired back.
“Because I’m a nice guy!”
“And I can’t be nice too?!”
“Your behavior is always deplorable,” Ashiya cut in. “All you do is sit at your computer all day and play those awful video games. Why would miss (Y/N) be sleeping next to you if you didn’t do something to her?”
“Guys, Urushihara didn’t do anything to me,” you told them, feeling bad for the poor guy for being so distrusted by the same people he lives with. “He’s honestly a really nice guy.”
Maou and Ashiya stared at you for a few moments in shock before turning their attention back to Urushihara.
“Did you feed her the same expired noodles that got Ashiya sick?” Maou questioned.
“Wha- NO!” Urushihara screamed, growing frustrated with their stupid questions.
“Come on, miss (Y/N),” Ashiya told you. “Let’s get you to the hospital.”
Before Maou and Ashiya could get any closer, you wrapped your arms around Urushihara’s neck and kissed him for a good couple of seconds before pulling away and standing up, heading towards the door where the two roommates stood side by side staring at you with a mix of utter shock and fear.
After you had left the apartment to find the landlord, Ashiya shut the door behind you and the three roommates were quiet for several moments, all of them shocked about what you had just done.
“She- she must be a devil!” Ashiya exclaimed, his eyes wide in fear.
Urushihara revealed a smirk unlike any other, turning around to face his beloved computer before saying one statement that sent fearful shivers throughout Maou and Ashiya's bodies.
“More like a devil’s lover."
