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. =)


13. Waking

Kaoru stretched and reached out to caress the warm body sharing his bed. This morning, unlike the one before, there wasn't any surprise at finding a golden haired god in the bed next to him. Well, flopped on him would be a more precise term, since most of Tamaki's torso and legs were pinning Kaoru to the soft cotton sheets. He definitely is a cuddler. It's nice because Hika is the same way. I kind of like waking up pressed between the sheets and muscle. A smile flickered across his face. I don't know how long this thing with Tama is going to last, but I will enjoy it while I can.

He tilted his head slightly and gently kissed the lips of the Host on top of him. Deep violet eyes lazily opened and looked deep into his amber colored ones, the truth of deep friendship and joy shining brightly in their depths. The happiness spread from violet eyes to soft pink lips as they stretched into a smile, before descending to the matching pair below. The kiss was shared joy, desire, and companionship and it left both a little breathless when it concluded.

"Damn Tamaki. You really know how to kiss."

"Thank you, my prince. I do enjoy it."

"It shows, mon ami. But it has put me in a quandary…"


"I have to get ready to go back to the Convention Center today, but part of me would far rather spend it lying naked in bed with you."

Tamaki smirked, "I think that's the best compliment that I have heard in a long time." He rolled over and looked at the clock. "But you still have a little time…"

"I know, but I wanted to beat Hika downstairs this time. I also wanted to see if I could sneak up and watch Haruhi and Mori do yoga for a bit. I have heard everyone say it's something else, but I haven't actually seen it."

"It really is beautiful to see them together, but I don't think even she is up yet, though it wouldn't surprise me if Takashi was. " A mischievous smile crossed his lips. "So what do you think about Hani and Takashi's statement last night?"

"I think I feel a little silly for not figuring it out. But otherwise I am flattered, and maybe a little curious. You?"

"Intensely curious and like you a bit silly that I didn't figure out that they were lovers, when it should have been pretty obvious by the care they showed for each other both in the Host Club and when they were outside of it."

"But part of the Host Club was all about the illusion or the fantasy. I know the twincest act that Hika and I did was very much that – an act. Even though we do have a rather taboo relationship when you compare it to what is considered normal, what we did in front of others was mostly for dramatic effect." Kaoru's voice got softer, "I don't know if either of us have ever said it outright, but thank you for not judging us, when so many others did."

Tamaki tightened his arms around his lover, "You are welcome. I knew that it was mostly an act, but I also know that you both are bonded and share your emotions – whether it's happiness, sadness, anger, mischievousness, and lust. To judge you because you happened to be brothers instead of strangers just seemed wrong to me. I am just so very glad that Haruhi was able to get the two of you to stretch the bond to include her, because it meant that you might be able to let the rest of us in as well."

"I would say the bond has been completely stretched. All of you have become so important to both Hika and me. It's really nice to be able to share our world with others, and to be able to explore things without being told that it's "wrong."

Kaoru returned the pressure of Tamaki's arms, closed his eyes, and just relaxed into the openness there. He stayed in that position for a few more minutes, just listening to Tamaki's heartbeat and enjoying the warmth of his body. The vibrations of a silent giggle, finally made him open his eyes again and stare at his lover questioningly.

"I just had an idea. It's a daring and potentially deadly idea, but one that could be very fun."

"I'll bite. What's your idea?"

"I think we should sneak into Haruhi's room and wake up the three of them. After all, Haruhi woke us up yesterday."

"You want to wake up KYOUYA?! You must have a death wish. That man scares me when he is waking up."

"Oh he's not that bad. I have woken him up before."

"And you are the only one who has lived to tell the tale."


"Absolutely. But I like the idea of it even more." Now Kaoru's evil grin was a match for Tamaki's.

"Let's do it."



A very soft creak, like a door opening, woke Haruhi from sleep. Tangled as she was in the arms and legs of her lovers, she could barely move her head to see what had made the subtle noise. Looking up her eyes met two other sets – a deep violet and a golden amber akin to the ones that were firmly closed and snuggled up into her back. Immediately she understood what was going on and braced herself for the impact that she knew was coming…

Three, Two, One, Tamaki silently mouthed the words to Kaoru. On "One", both of them jumped onto the bed occupied by their three friends and bounced around shouting "Wake Up Sleepy Heads!"

Haruhi laughed and succeeded in ducking the swinging arms as both Hikaru and Kyouya sat bolt upright in the bed and threw punches at their unconventional alarm clocks, breath heavy and hearts racing from the adrenaline.

"What the FUCK!"

"We thought it should be our turn to wake you up, since Haruhi woke us up yesterday."

"You missed your alarm, while ours hasn't even gone off yet. Not fair brother."

While Hikaru and Kaoru bantered back and forth, Tamaki maintained eye contact with Kyouya, trying to read what his best friend was going to do. I haven't had this much fun with him in a long time. I missed that so much. I hope we get a chance to hang out together.

"Tamaki Suoh, if you wanted to spend time together, all you needed to do was say so." The chill in Kyouya's voice sent a shiver down Tamaki's spine. Damn. I forgot how he ALWAYS seems to know what I am thinking.

Haruhi, hearing the coldness in Kyouya's voice and knowing that it was only a by-product of the abrupt awakening, not a reflection of his real feelings toward Tamaki quickly sat up, pressed her body against his back, and wrapped her arms around his neck, completely forgetting that she was naked. The heat of her body and the soothing noises she murmured in his ear, soon relaxed the shadow king and his dragon disappeared into the ether. Looking over she noticed that Hikaru was also slowly stroking his hand up and down Kyouya's arm in an attempt to sooth him.

Finally the humor of the situation hit Kyouya and he started to laugh. Still maintaining eye contact with his best friend, he said, "Why is it, Tamaki, that you are the only person who insists on waking me up at ungodly hours of the morning?"

"Because it's fun!" He squeaked as three large pillows came flying at him, knocking him off the bed. Undaunted he continued a huge grin on his face, "Besides, how else am I going to get a chance to gawk at all of you naked?"

Blushing Haruhi dived back under the covers, while her men did the same. Still laughing at Tamaki's comments, Kaoru snuggled up next to his brother and slipped his arm around him. "I missed you." Hikaru smiled as he returned the embrace, returning the snuggles with affection.

Rising from the floor, Tamaki stared at the four people in the bed in front of him. Trying to hide his wistfulness at the cozy scene, he bent down and picked up the pillows they had tossed at him. He looked up at the sound of Haruhi's voice.

"Tama, did you want to cuddle?"

Blushing he replied, "I would but … Are you sure?"

"Always, my friend." Kyouya responded and made room for Tamaki to slip in between him and Haruhi.

Sighing in bliss, he laid his head in the space above her breasts and below her neck as Kyouya spooned him from behind. Kyouya's arm reached across Tamaki's body to Haruhi's heart where it met Hikaru's and locked.

Not surprisingly it was Hikaru who broke the silence with a teasing tone, "Well Tamaki, thanks to you we have proven that Hani was right about at least one thing."

"What's that?"

"The bed is currently holding five people. It's a bit squished but manageable… Now who is going to take them up on their offer?"

Groans and grins met his comment.
