Summary: A love confession involving a bouquet of red crimson roses, was the earliest memory of bitter-sweet love Ruki could recollect; a bitter-sweet one-sided confession, from someone of the same gender. Young and naive Ruki receiving this confession, automatically rejected the other grader's love--brutally and unsympathetically, all to keep and impress his 'friends'. After seeing the anguish of the other grader's broken heart: Ruki could never live down, the tears and misery it brought his admirer. Nearly seven years after, he had already lost all contact with the other mysterious grader. That is until, Ruki suspects that the newest acquaintance he has befriended, is the one he turned down many years ago. The two now growing closer than expected: how will Ruki be able to confess, that he was the ungrateful bastard that caused him his pro-longed misery?

Last Bouquet

+++++ +++++
I though I had sealed this painful memory away awhile ago. But I can feel the faint presence of it, and it's creeping--it's lurking silently at my conscience.

Why though?

Why did I do to fucking deserve being tormented?

I promise I never meant for that to happen: I've apologized nearly  a million times--why can't you leave it be!

Please...just leave me alone.

I swear and promise to God, I'll never hurt another human-being, or anything if you just forgive me.

But even if I say all of that, will you still believe my words after how I treated you?

B-Because to be honest, I still can't forgive myself.

Without a second thought, Ruki's eye-lids pulled apart wide open, his breathing husky and uneven. Sluggishly propping his body to sit up, he automatically felt the dampness of his pajamas, his body glistening with sweat. "shit." He muttered softly as he pulled his thick sheets off, hastily throwing them on his bed-room floor. Despite the preparation for stepping off his bed, the drowsy teen had no real motivation to move. Remaining in his sitting position, he allowed his eyes to adjust to the very little amount of sun-light leaking through his closed blinds. After a few moments, his eyes flickered to his digital alarm clock, the colors flashing "11:34 AM". Realizing he was going to be late with plans made today, Ruki hopped off bed, hastily ripping through his clothes in a white basket. He knew his tardiness was from his over-sleeping, but his mentality could not pull away from his night-mare.

His...reoccurring night-mare that was.

His sub-conscience thoughts, were stuck in the loop of sixth grade near the end of the first semester. yeah, he knew exactly what horrible memory it was. And although that was typical for him, to still feel guilty about the event--was the repetition necessary? Well of course not; he had other things to worry about.

People to see, places to go.

Finishing collecting his outfit for the day, Ruki quietly slipped out of his room, than proceeded to his bath-room
+++++ +++++
Stepping out of the stuffed bath-room, the cleansed teen sighed in satisfaction, hands occupied with dying his damn hair. Taking a shower always seemed to help Ruki clear his mind, because he could think about the most personal issues without being harassed by his guardian or phone-calls. Although his shower in particular had problems--it never being cool enough during the summer, and never being warm sufficiently for the freezing winters--it was still a nice place to escape to.

Making his way to his living room, his ears tuned in intently to the possible presence of another family member; but surprisingly, there was absolutely nothing. In spite of the fact that Ruki's house-hold, had only two people in it: it was more silent that usual. Even the creak of his own footsteps, against the wood-floor caused him to jump a bit. Cursing out to his paranoia, Ruki ended his mute walking. As he entered the living room, his voice quickly became unheard, as he caught a hold of his father writing down miscellaneous information.

Surrounding him were multiple note-pads, torn envelope which Ruki could make out of them being typical bills, along with medical ones. A calculator was found conveniently to his left, his father's right hand holding a blue pen for correction. Mumbling to himself, Ruki figured he was figuring at how to make down-payments for multiple necessities, along with avoiding debt. Ruki wondered how much luck, his father was getting with that.

"Yes Ruki-kun?"

Startled by his father's recognition, he didn't respond automatically, beginning to feel a bit of a nuisance. "I uh, just wanted to to let you know I'm heading out."

"Hmmm, going to hang out with Uruha?"

"Eh, don't know: probably."

Taking his thick reading glasses off, father stared straight at Ruki, eyes hardening in what seemed to be disapproval. Weary eyes studied his son, dark and heavy bags becoming more apparent. "Don't forget, you have an appointment with Dr. Tamaki today."

"Ugh I know, that's the only reason I woke up." Going to the front door, Ruki grabbed his black low-top converse, slipping each foot in and properly adjusting it according. His eyes fixed upon his working father, his hands managing to tie the shoe laces correctly. Was his dad always working this hard, to keep up with bills?

Did it appear this stressing with all parents?

"You better not come home, being more blond Ruki." Before allowing the time for his to respond, he answered for him as he flipped through a stack of bills. "I don't want the school, to keep calling home and complaining about the distraction you're causing."

"What, distraction? Why don't you tell them, to shove it up their asses."
His flipping of the papers abruptly stopped, eyes shooting back to Ruki's. "Y'know your mother wouldn't have took that."

"....Mother? Yeah I suppose you're...right." After putting on his shoes, Ruki grabbed his black hoodie, and opened the front door. Digging into his pockets for his house key, he called out as his farewell. "Alright I'm leaving! I'll be back whenever."


Before completely exiting, Ruki still kept his hand around the door nob, hesitating to let go as he turned back to comment out-loud once more. "I love you dad."

His scribbling paused for a brief moment, and he resumed writing checks ignoring the statement; Ruki's eyes dropped to his feet, as he gently closed and locked his front door.
A/N: WHUT? In the prologue he was called Matsumoto, his birth name. But now, he's called Ruki...? HAY, it's fine: calm down--you'll find out eventually! xD -pets- Oh I know it's short! I just needed a break from long....chapters. So your thoughts? Shorter chapters with quicker/faster updates? Or longer chapters, with slower/delayed updates? Well either way, more descriptions(physical) in the next-chapter, and expect an appearance from Uru & Aoi soon! So you're prob. wondering "What about Reita?" Soon my child--soon! Now what are your thoughts about Ruki & his dad? And why is he so closed? We'll find that out later~TY for reading! long comments= ♥^^

I can tell I'm going to love this series, after reading the gorgeously heartbreaking prologue. And I was right :D
I don't like the fact that he still hangs out with Uruha (why is my lovely Uruduckie so mean? D:) but I can't wait for the re-introduction of Reita!

RXR <3!

Awwee; thank you!~
Yeah well, those two stuck with each-other since sixth grade :P
Well, Uruha to me can pull off a bitchy thing. xDD

Reita's introduction for the first time, in about seven years...it'll be awhile but XuX

"You better not come home, being more blond Ruki." heh I like this line ^ ^; It seems like a simple line but it speaks volumes for the nature of his dad's concern.
ya know cause it's not always that a kid has to look really baggy eyed and stoned and the parents yell stuff like ' You're doing drugs?? blah blah :0 !!' .. things don't always have to be so rastic or look so drastic.. sometimes it's something as normal as having dyed hair which makes parents worry or even give parents a clue that 'ah my kid has changed.. is changing more.. mmh i don't think i like this change..'

ok whatever ~back to the main point --> Thank you for update <3333

really can't wait for the next one !!!

Yeah, he's caring for his son but...
Anyways, moving on x3
Thank you for the comment!
I hope you enjoy the next chapter!<3

shouchanin_bloom81 on September 25th, 2010 07:38 pm (UTC)
as for what kinda updates is better .. long chapters with long intervals between updates or short chapters with less gap between time of updates.. eh ^ ^; it depends on you ..but i admit though it's lovely reading long chapters , shorter chapters with fast update is nice too. As long as the chapters itself have some development I don't mind waiting (though it's hard to be patient lol) ..
yeah so just post when you feel like you're ready to ~ we'll be patiently waiting ^-^
