The Only Constant is Change

It's Haruhi, Kaoru, and Hikaru's final year at Ouran. Dynamics are changing and evolving... What will happen to the Host Club Members?

Author's Note: This story takes place about 8 months after the events in A Faire Shot at Mythology. It can be read as a stand alone, but it references events and items from that piece as well. If you are reading my work for the 1st time, I would humbly suggest reading my other stories The Game and A Faire Shot at Mythology before reading this to completely understand some of the relationship dynamics that I use. I promise that if you like this style of writing you will like those too. =)

7. Morning Light

The light streaming through the windows woke Haruhi fully as she fumbled across Hikaru’s body to turn off the alarm on his phone. He didn’t even hear it, which is unusual for him. Moving cautiously and as quietly as she could, so as not to disturb the notoriously grumpy when wakened Shadow King, she leaned over Hikaru and gave him a soft kiss to wake him up. She then whispered in his ear, “Hika-love, your alarm went off. Time to wake up.”

The press of lips against his followed by a sweet murmur in his ear brought Hikaru fully awake in more ways than one. Rolling Haruhi underneath him, he pinned her down and kissed her deeply grinding his lower body against hers. The gasp of pleasure against his lips made him smile.

With regret, Haruhi broke the kiss and reminded him gently, “As much as I would love to continue this, we risk waking Kyouya. Plus you and Kaoru have to go down to the convention center to prepare for Fashion Week.”

Glancing over at the still sleeping third person in their bed, Hikaru nodded with understanding tinged with a bit of regret. Though gods know I don’t want to be the one to wake him. He is freaking scary if he doesn’t wake up naturally. He really is the Shadow King!! Turning back to Haruhi, he gave her one last kiss before rolling off her and heading toward her bathroom.

Haruhi lay there for a moment watching Kyouya. Smiling, she gingerly laid a kiss on the sleeping beast’s cheek, then stretching, she rolled out of the bed as well, grabbed a pair of yoga pants and sports bra from the dresser, and joined Hikaru in the bathroom.

Hikaru was just entering the shower and Haruhi leaned back against the counter enjoying the view. Noticing that she was watching him, he teased, “Are you just going to stand there or are you going to join me?”

“Mmmm… debating.,” She laughed at his expression. “I actually am going to go up to the dojo and get some yoga and a workout in this morning. It seems silly to shower only to get all sweaty again. Though I have to admit, you standing naked there with water dripping down your body makes me want to change my mind.”

A wet hand snaked out and pulled her into the shower with him, “Take another later. I have unfinished business with you.”

“You know we don’t have much time. Your limo will be here in forty-five minutes and you still need to wake Kaoru,” Haruhi’s comments were interrupted by a slick body pressing her up against the shower wall, thick hardness making itself known against her stomach. Desire flooded her and she lost her train of thought, “Ungh… ummm… what was I saying?”

“Something to try and distract me,” Hikaru replied as he lifted her and slid deeply into her, the water making paths down their bodies as they moved together against the cool tile. Knowing he really didn’t have much time, Hikaru used a deep rhythm he knew would bring them both quickly without sacrificing the intimacy that he wanted. “I just want to distract you more,” he whispered seductively before thrusting deep and feeling both their climaxes peak together.

“Mmmmm,” Haruhi felt the pleasure cascade through her body. “Consider me completely distracted.”

With a laugh, Hikaru slid out of her and pulled her under the stream from the shower head. Grabbing a pouf, he quickly soaped it and used it on her, watching as the suds slipped down her body. Damn, if I keep this up, I will never get out of this shower. I do have to wake Kao and we do have to meet mom, though. With a sigh, he handed it to Haruhi.

“You are incredibly sexy all soapy like this,” Haruhi remarked as she returned the favor, “ I really wish we had more time.”

“Me too my love,” With a final sigh, Hikaru rinsed off and turned off the water. Grabbing two towels, he handed one to Haruhi and dried quickly off with the other one. Pulling on a pair of pajama bottoms, he left the bathroom to return to his room, wake Kaoru, and get changed.

Haruhi dried her hair with the towel and then wrapped it around her body. She ran a brush through her wet tangles before pulling it back into a ponytail. I’ll wash it after I finish my work out. As she was brushing her teeth, Hikaru rushed back into the bathroom flustered.

Seeing Hikaru’s distress, Haruhi rinsed and asked, “What’s wrong my love?”

It took a minute before Hikaru could respond, during which time, Haruhi quickly put on her yoga pants and sports bra before wrapping herself around him. “Is something wrong with Kaoru?”

“Not exactly wrong, but…” Hikaru’s voice trailed off.

Haruhi poked him. “What happened?”

“I went into our room to wake Kaoru and he wasn’t there. The bed didn’t even look like it was slept in. So I went to Tamaki’s room to see if he knew where Kao was. He was there. Kaoru and Tamaki spent last night together. Their arms are wrapped around each other and they are both completely naked. I… I couldn’t say anything or wake them, so I ran back here. I don’t know what to do. Tamaki and Kaoru?!?”

“Ahhh…,” Haruhi said, realizing Hikaru was in a fragile state at seeing his twin with someone else, and especially knowing that someone else was Tamaki. “Hika-love, I know you are confused right now, but can I ask you something?”

Hikaru tightened his grip on her before replying. “Yes, of course.”

“You spent last night with me and Kyouya, which meant that Kao would have spent last night and possibly every night for this entire trip alone. I know that neither of you sleeps well without someone there. Are you upset that he didn’t sleep alone? Or are you more surprised to find out that he slept with Tamaki?”

“I’m not sure. I didn’t really think about it. Gods that makes me sound like a horrible twin. I don’t want him to be alone, but I don’t want to give up you and Kyouya. I don’t know what to do.”

“Does it bother you that he slept with Tamaki? Are you feeling jealous of Tama?”

“I am a little bit jealous, because I know the only other man that Kao has slept with is me. But, I don’t want him to be alone either. I know you, Kao and I would sleep together, but I don’t know about Kyouya. I think that would be pushing it too far when we are just starting to figure it out among the three of us.”

Holding him tight, Haruhi continued, “I know you are still confused my love. Just promise me that you will think about something today. Nothing will ever break the bond that you and Kaoru have. I promise that. But like you were able to stretch your bond to include me, do you think you could stretch it even more to include Tamaki, or even Mori and Hani? No one should be alone if they don’t want to be and we all love each other in different ways. Is it really wrong if we offer to share that love with one of us who needs it?”

“I will try to think about that. But what about you? Does it bother you that your ex-boyfriend slept with Kao?”

“Actually it really doesn’t. I know that Tamaki is flexible in his sexuality. He isn’t quite bi like you are, but I know that he is attracted to everyone in the Host Club, similar to the way that I am. It’s not that far of a stretch for me to imagine Tamaki offering to keep Kao company, because if I was in Tamaki’s place I would probably do the same, even though I am not “in love” with Kaoru. You should know that you can still have great and fun sex with a friend. Sex isn’t always about passion and lust. Sometimes it’s about comfort and friendship… and that’s ok.” Haruhi looked up at her lover to make sure he was listening.

“I understand. It’s like you and Tamaki after you both broke up. I know he would stay over on nights with thunderstorms, especially if your dad wasn’t home. He was comforting you.”

“Exactly, though I won’t deny it was still fun too. Tamaki is a great lover.” She held a finger to his lips as he was about to protest. “For me, Tamaki was a great lover. You and Kyouya blow my freaking mind. Repeatedly. In the most interesting ways. Please don’t ever be jealous of him because of me. We really are better as friends and what I feel for him is the same that I feel for Kaoru. I do love him, but I am completely head over heels in love with both of you. I don’t know what I would do without you both in my life.”

Hikaru swallowed his protest. At Haruhi’s words a fierce sense of pride at having her complete love washed through him. I knew this. It’s not a surprise. Just seeing Kao and Tama together threw me for a few minutes. I am still processing it, but I think I am going to be ok with it. It’s not fair for me to be jealous when I have someone and Kao doesn’t. There will be a point sometime in the future where he will fall in love with someone and I need to be able to be happy for him, the way he is happy for me.

“I love you.” Hikaru just held Haruhi for a few more moments.

“I love you too, so very much. Would you like for me to go wake Kaoru, so you can have a few minutes to get collected before you see him?”

“I would really appreciate that.”

“Ok my love,” She stretched up and kissed Hikaru softly before disengaging herself from his arms. He followed her as far as his bedroom, where he grabbed some clothes and then went back into her room to change.

Haruhi went through the French doors into Tamaki’s suite. Seeing that he and Kaoru were still entwined and fast asleep, she smiled. Quietly she walked over to the edge of the bed and sat down. Slowly running a hand up both of their arms, she called gently, ”Kaoru, Tamaki, wake up my friends. Kaoru has to get ready to go to the Convention Center.”

Kaoru heard Haruhi’s voice and felt her touch on his arm, still mostly asleep, he snuggled into the warm body next to him. Opening his eyes a crack he saw Haruhi above him and the golden hair of the man he was cuddling into. A jolt whipped through him. GOLDEN HAIR! Hikaru’s hair was red not golden. The memory of the night before flooded him and he remembered everything, including a very satisfying evening with Tamaki. A deep blush spread through him. Oh my gods, what is Haruhi thinking? Did Hikaru see me like this? What am I going to do?

Seeing the panic on Kaoru’s face, she leaned over and kissed him briefly. “Don’t worry, Kao-love. Everything is fine. Hikaru just needs a little bit of time to process everything, but he is going to be ok as well. I promise. I am really glad you didn’t spend the night alone.”

Tamaki woke up stretching at Haruhi’s words. He also blushed as he realized that she had caught both of them naked in bed with each other, though her words to Kaoru helped calm him a bit. Pulling her down on top of both of them, Tamaki teased, “Hello Princess. I could get used to you waking us up on a regular basis. What exactly are you wearing? And may I say your tattoo looks even better in person than on a video screen.”

Laughing at Tamaki’s flirting, she teased back, “Well I am about to go get stretchy and sweaty, so I thought a ball gown would be a bad choice, though the designer I am squishing may disagree. I am glad you like the design. Remind me to show you the full thing later. Right now, I hate to break up this cuddlefest, but Kao has to get ready to go. Hika will meet him downstairs in 20 minutes.” With a last kiss on each of their foreheads, Haruhi climbed off the bed, walked out the door, and up the stairs to the dojo.

Awake and alone, Tamaki and Kaoru stared at each other for a minute. Each wondered what the other was thinking. Finally, Kaoru leaned in and kissed Tama briefly. “Thank you again for last night. I really did enjoy it… and… and I wouldn’t mind doing it again if the opportunity comes up.”

The smile on Tamaki’s face outshone the sun streaming through the window. “I think that could be arranged. Prince Kaoru.”

Tamaki’s wink made Kaoru laugh. With a final stretch he stood up and went into the bathroom. He showered quickly, knowing that Tamaki would need to use it as well. Going back into his bedroom, Kaoru went through his dresser and found a comfortable but stylish pair of jeans and shirt. I have to work with Renge today… and Hikaru. I know Haruhi said he was ok with my sleeping with Tamaki, but I won’t really know until I see him. Is he going to be hurt?

Knowing he couldn’t delay the inevitable any longer, with a last look in the mirror, Kaoru straightened his clothing and walked downstairs to the waiting limo.
