"Your welcome" 'what wouldn't you do for the person you love?'
Ran couldn't fall asleep. His adrenalin was still pumping. 'I can't sleep..' He got up on his knees and looked at the clock. 02:34 am. 'I had too many energy drinks' he looked at Izumi. 'He looks so cute when he is sleeping' a pool of drool ran down Izumi's mouth. Ran put his finger on his lips and gently wiped it off. 'He so cute..' Suddenly Ran leaned closer and closer to Izumi's face. 'His lips...i want them..'
"Ran..." He mumbled. He slowly opened his eyes. "Ran?"
Ran backed away as fast as he could. "Im sorry! Its just there was some dust on your face haha~" he blew on his hand. "Look all gone..." Ran was so nervous he couldn't hold his hand still.
"Nnn..." He mumbled. He put one hand under his chin and looked at you. "Now I'm awake and there's no way I can sleep again yet." Izumi looked at your body. "You know, you have a really nice body."
Ran's stomach began to feel ticklish and his cheeks felt warm again. "I do? No way..." Ran had never had good self-esteem. 'Why am I so happy by only a few words?' Ran put his leg against his chest and put his arms around them. "My scars are pitiful right? They are so ugly..." Ran sighed. "Just like me...they resemble me.."
"No, don't say that! You are an amazing person. Those scars were made with pain and sorrow in your heart. And they do not resemble you. You are a beautiful and a good person. You were there for me when my parents got divorced and no one else was there for me. I am very greatful to have a friend like you. No one else could have been in your place in my heart and I wish that we could always be together." Izumi had gotten tears in his eyes. "Look at me, crying like a baby."
"Don't cry" Ran wiped away his tears. He held his face "Shh...I'm right here" he pulled him in for a hug. "I'm right here" he comforted him the best he could. "I wont ever leave you" he was swaying back and forth with Izumi in his arms. He whistled a happy melody. "Remeber that song?...daisy, daisy, give me your answer do..." He whispered as he held him tighter. "Im half crazy all for the love of you..." He patted your head as he swayed back and forth. "It wont be a stylish marriage...I can't afford a carriage" as the high note came his voice cracked a little. "But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two..." He held your face again and looked in your eyes. "Remeber my dad sang it to us everytime we used to fight and got sad?"
(The song is called daisy bell)
Izumi held Ran tighter. "Mhmm..." He mumbled. "Thank you for being a good friend. And remember, I'll always be there for you so don't hurt yourself and don't think low of yourself, because I'll get sad too." He said.
"Okay I won't" he embraced him as if he could break. "Ill try to be more positive about myself" he released him and looked at him. "Your the best friend i could ever have" he gave Izumi such a carefree smile. As if everything was okay.
Izumi took his hands up to your chin. The boys sat really close "I know everything's not okay Ran. Something has been bothering you. What is it? You can tell me anything, you know." His temper was beginning to run low.
"Well I'm am sad about my fathers death..." He looked away from you. 'He gets so troublesome when he's mad..I hope he'll belive that that's all to it instead of the reality that there's the fact that I like him...he can't find out..' "Don't worry i'll be okay soon since I got to talk to you" he smiled again. "I'm even gonna stop cutting. We can flush away all my blades i use for cutting tomorrow" he said in a happy voice.
"You can't fool me Ran..." It was like Izumi was totally another person. It was like he got darker and darker and you could only see his eyes that saw through everything and everyone.
"Okay! It's just that...I like someone..and I'm scared of being rejected..so I don't want to tell them" his heartbeat increased by the second. His heartbeat was out off course and was beating heavily and fast.
Izumi giggled. "It's fine, you can tell me who you like when you're ready, don't worry... But you better get ready soon, cuz I hate waiting! Okay?" The eyes again.
"Y-yea..." Ran was a little irritated. "How come you never say anything when I'm blushing or shy? Isn't that a perfect opputunity to tease me?" Ran scratched his back. "I mean like even the guys who bully me tease me with it" he quickly covered his mouth. 'I wasn't supposed to tell him that! Now he'll just worry even more!'
"Bullies!? SOMEONE'S BULLYING YOU!? That's even worse! Tell me who it is and I'm gonna kill them right away!" Izumi stood up, ready to head out and kill those bullies.
Ran grabbed his hand. "Don't! They are too many and I don't mind.. I'm used to it so I tend to ignore them... Don't, please" He got up and hugged you so that Izumi couldn't leave. "You're way smaller than them.. Even I'm smaller than them.." Ran looked down at you. "Its okay, I'm fine.. They're just middle year students anyway." he smiled at him.
He sat down. And sighed. "Don't let them bully you, just stay away from them okay? But why the hell are middle school students even bullying you? I don't understand." He took his hands to his forehead. "I'm terrible that I didn't notice."
Ran got more irritated. "As if.. They buy at the same store as me and they know something about me that they find freaky... And you're not terrible. Anyway they are just kids so I can't really call it bullying, more like teasing" he gave you a thumbs up. "Weird that little kids today are so big hehe~"
"Waaah, I don't understand anything at all. You are saying so much but I don't get the answer I want. Well, I'm tired of confusement, so I'm going to sleep now. Goodnight Ran-chan!" Izumi closed his eyes and fell asleep right away.
Ran looked at his sleeping face. "So cute" he went over to his bed and hesitately kissed his forehead. "Goodnight Izumi" he looked at you for a few seconds before whispering. "I love you" after that he went to sleep and slept trough out the rest of the night.
