Same Old Flame

He was drifting in and out of consciousness.

It hurt.

But why?

It was just a routine hunting trip. He’d gone on many before this one.

Oh right, the birds.

They’d been ambushed.

“Kai-kun?” a voice asked.

She was still alive.

Thank goodness.

 “…Are you still with me?”

He did his best to nod his head.

“Don’t ever scare me like that again!”

She was mad.

Or was it scared?

What was it like to see him get sliced up by the bird’s claws? Did she get hurt when he pushed her down?

“…Idiot. Why did you do that? You could have been killed!”

It amazed him that she could be so dense and still call him an idiot. All these years, and she still didn’t realize how much he loved her?  If she understood that, then maybe she would understand why he had pushed her down, why he took the brunt of the blow in her place. If he survived this, he was going to tell her how he felt and make sure she understood that he meant it as love.

Something moist hit his face.

Was it rain or… her tears?

Where were they right now?

If only he could open his eyes.

When his eyes did open,  it was dark. They were in a cave.

“…Tsuki-chan?”

She turned at his voice. She had been crying.

The first thing she did was hug him. The pressure hurt a little on his wounds, but at the same time, he didn’t mind the tightness of the
embrace.

“Thank goodness.”

“Tsuki-chan, I want to tell you something.”

 “It can wait! You shouldn’t be talking! You have to save your strength! ” she said.

“Please...”

 She paused. “What is it you need to say?”

He took a deep breath.

“I love you.”

She laughed a little. “You’re joking, right?”

“I’m not. I’ve loved you for a really long time.”

Silence.

“…How long, exactly?”

“Since I met you.”

“But we were just kids then! …You’re really not joking?” she asked.

“Would I risk my life for a prank?”

“… Why didn’t you tell me?”

“I tried to, numerous times.”

She looked to the side.

“But I was happy. I always wanted to stay with you, even if you never loved me back. I didn’t want to ruin what we have. I’m sorry, this is probably a little too much to take in, right?”

 “No. Now that I look back on it, it makes a lot of sense; I just never noticed.  You saw me as a girl first, not a boy; I’ve always been grateful for that. Even so, you followed my plans, believed in me, and helped me win my war. When I lost my voice and was at my weakest, you stayed by my side and kept me sane,saved me from being kidnapped. Even now, after all this time, you protected me.”

She was crying again.

“I’m sorry, Kai-kun! I’m so sorry my stupidity’s been hurting you for years!”

“Tsuki-chan, what do you feel towards me now?”

“Um, it’s a shy, squishy feeling. It’s changed since we were little. Back then, it didn’t matter that you were a boy and I was a girl, but now I…”

“You what?”

“I don’t hate the idea of loving you like that. I want to stay with you. If it’s for you then, I can stomach this girly feeling. Only, what are lovers supposed to do?”

“For right now, can I lie against you? This cave floor isn’t exactly good support.”

“Sorry. This was the only place I could think to take you.”

“You carried me all by yourself? That’s impressive. Have we been gone long enough for Kouga to notice?”

“Probably.”

“Let’s stay put. Knowing him, he’s already sent scouts out to find us. He still worries about you, you know.”

“I know. If anyone asks, I’m just letting you rest on me because you’re injured,” she said. “You just rest now. Let me protect you until help comes.”
