"you make me feel so warm here," she sighs, smiling at their clasped hands held tightly in front of her chest. he holds his breath as she opens her eyes, meeting his. "and sometimes, i'm scared.. because i'm so happy that i feel just as sad whenever you leave.." she drifts off, eyes slightly glossing over now. he can't help it. he lifts his free hand to her face to touch her smooth, reddening cheeks.
"umika.." he starts, ever so gently like she were asleep, careful not to stir her awake. she angles her cheek to his touch and breathes in. outside, the rain fades into a quiet pitter patter. his heart is racing parallel to hers. he wishes he could hold her now.. if only he could.
"the rain's stopped. it's time to go home." it comes out forced. they both know neither really wants to go, but they should. umika presses her lips together briefly before releasing his hand. he can feel the cold wind breezing through his damp palm, but resists the urge wipe it off on his thigh. "come on," he whispers, propping up one knee and offering a hand to her. she squints at it, then up at him.
"kentou.. can you grant me a selfish request?" she asks. by now, the rain has completely stopped, leaving only its traces in shallow puddles and cold vapor in the air. kento keeps his eyes at level with hers, feeling her gaze pierce through him. he knows, even if he says otherwise, she would still find a way for him to grant it anyway, so he gives in and figures being a minute late or two wouldn't be so bad.
"what is it?"
it was a question, not an answer, even. but umika took it as a yes. she got up, pushing her weight up from her hands to come face to face with him. he stirs lightly, surprised by the sudden (but familiar) closeness. she puts her hands firmly, almost gripping his shoulders, angles her neck and then presses her lips to his. it doesn't last a second. she pulls away quickly. suddenly, she's back to normal now, covering her mouth bashfully, apologising.
"i.. i just wanted to try.. i didn't expect it to feel that way.. i'm surprised.."
kento touches his lips. they kissed. she looks at him expectantly. he wonders what he should say at a situation like this. around them, light dims as the sky starts to change color. umika is the first to break into smile. he watches as she brightens and starts to laugh. he feels it, too. his chest is warm. he's so happy when he's around her, and frightfully desperate every time they have to part..
"kentou.. are you okay?"
he snaps out of it. i have something special right here, keeping it to myself is the last thing i'd want to do. it's time to go home. he grabs her hand and pulls her up to her feet, mumbling an awkward "sorry" when her forehead bumps unto his chest.
