Chapter 1: Study Habits
All throughout the sensei’s lecture on human anatomy, Haruhi felt the twin’s agitation. She bit her lip slightly as she tried to focus on the lesson even as waves of tension pressed against her from both sides. It doesn’t help one bit that she was sitting between them as undecipherable and rather heated looks passed between the brothers. Haruhi idly pondered if the twins had a spat, hence the burning eyes with silent messages… she also briefly considered if the heat of their gaze had anything to do with the fact the the twins were lousy with science.
“That’s it for today class!” announced the professor as audible sighs of relief echoed in the classroom. “Oh and our finals are coming up so make sure you study hard for it!” added the professor as students groaned on their way out. Kaoru and Hikaru lounged against theur desks, their eyes half-lidded and their hands in their pockets as they waited for their club member to get up.
While Haruhi was putting all her books in her bag, the professor paused on his way out. “Oi, Hikaru and Kaoru, you guys need to study harder! You better get an 85 on the finals or you’ll fail my class. Fujioka-san, maybe you could lend the twins some of your time, they really need it,” suggested the professor as he headed out.
Exasperated, Haruhi looked from one inscrutable face to the next. “I can’t believe I’m friends with guys who fail Biology! What’s so hard about it?” asked Haruhi as she stood up. She settled her bag more securely against her shoulder as the twins fell into step at her side. It was an old habit from months since she became part of their world–every class, every activity, except maybe during Club time when the twins were doing their “brotherly love” act, she always found herself standing between them, their shoulders brushing together as they made their way to their destination. She never questioned why she was always with them–it just seemed natural to be that way. For her, the twins were like an open book, she knew them and was familiar with them and in so many ways, is as comforting to her as her tidy notes.
But lately, there was a tension around them she couldn’t understand. And the look in the twins’ beautiful (yes, if she was being completely true to herself, she really finds their eyes fascinating) eyes was as foreign to her as a Swiss bank account. She often wondered what the look they’ve been giving her means but she never really seriously tried to find out what it was because it wasn’t as life and death as a chemistry quiz. Besides, she figured that when the twins were ready to tell her what’s on their minds, they’ll tell her. But for now, she’ll let them work it out on their own and just allow those golden eyes rest on her, a gaze that was almost like an intimate caress.
The fine hair at the nape of her neck stirred when the twins suddenly shifted on their heels, pushing Haruhi into a deserted corner. She could feel her ears turn red as both twins simultaneously towered over her and rested one of their arms up the wall over her head, putting her back up against the wall. They look strange, she decided in her mind. It’s almost as if they looked–hungry.
Kaoru and Hikaru took their time as they gazed down at the petite girl. Her eyes were wide, obviously surprised that they had backed her against the wall and were leaning quite close to her. But what surprised them the most was that there was no pink tinge creeping along the girl’s cheeks. She seemed surprised yes, but she also seemed indifferent to their appeal and that frustrated the Hitachiin twins a great deal. They’ve held the girl in their arms on different occasions, sometimes just one of them at a time and sometimes even both. Haruhi never made an issue about it, as if resigned to her designation as Hikaru and Kaoru’s toy. But both guys never really voiced aloud how well she fit in their arms, almost as if she belonged exclusively to them.
Until the Halloween fear trial, both boys viewed her as their favorite toy, a living Barbie doll. But when Hikaru and Haruhi were caught in the net, the proximity triggered an avalanche of feelings. Lust. And while Hikaru brooded over it, unsure of his feelings, Kaoru saw and felt what it was with equal intensity. They both lay awake at night, aching for a friend who was suddenly more than a friend. It was an unspoken desire that grew worse with each “innocent” physical contact.
Hikaru spoke first, pitching his voice lower as a devilish gleam entered his eyes. “Ne Haruhi, you will be helping us pass Biology right?” he asked. Understanding dawned on Kaoru as the same light entered his eyes. He leaned in close, putting his face right in front of Haruhi’s. “You are the only one who can help us get get through biology. Our other classmates would probably pass away from the excitement of our presence,” said Kaoru, rolling his eyes slightly.
Haurhi blinked. Kaoru was so close his breath feathered over her lips. And if she’s not mistaken, Hikaru’s right hand was currently playing on the lobe of her ear. She inclined her head a bit as she considered her answer and replied, “Ah..well, okay. I could help you go through our lessons.” She gave them her signature dot-eyed look, “You guys probably didn’t take down notes, did you?”
The twins looked at each other and laughed. They spoke at the same time. “Yare, yare Haruhi, you know us too well. So you think you can stay over tonight so we could study over the weekend?”
“Otou-san might not let me,” pointed out Haruhi.
“We’ll put you in a guest room! It’s not like–,” both twins said and leaned in really, really close, “We have something evil in mind,” they murmured against her cheeks. They straightened up and put their hands behind their head. “We’ll just study and we’ll even prepare ootoro and all kinds of delicious food and snacks for you since you’re kind enough to teach us,” said the boys in unison.
Haruhi dropped her fist against her palm. She looked slightly starry-eyed. “Okay then!”
The Hitachiin brothers exchanged high fives and knowing looks.
A/N: I had meant to stop it there but I couldn’t resist! The next chapter is pretty long so I decided to put the first few paragraphs of it in here. And also, pardon me if some parts seem romance novel-esque, I do have no experience to write from so please allow it to stem for my rather lurid imagination. ^_^
After a sumptuous dinner and after being toured through the Hitachiin’s meticulously maintained garden, Haruhi felt the need to put her foot down and remind the twins that she’s not there as a guest. “Hikaru! Kaoru! We really should start studying you know,” she reminded the twins. They were standing at the wide terrace, moonlight bathing them with a soft glow.
Hikaru and Kaoru turned to face the exasperated girl with identical smiles on their faces.
For a moment, as Haruhi stared at them with their features made ethereal by the moonlight, the breath caught in her chest. She was entranced by the sheer beauty of the twins. She never really saw them that way but now she understood the reason why the Hitachiin brotherly love is such a bestseller in the club. The two of them together were just simply breathtaking.
“Oi, earth to Haruhi!” said Kaoru as he waved his hand over her face.
Haruhi snapped back to Earth and with it, a dratted and very much unwelcome blush. “Ah…gomen..my mind was wandering,” said Haruhi scratching her cheek with an index finger.
Hikaru and Kaoru exchanged veiled looks. A small smirk graced their lips. But they reverted to their former antics as both arms wound themselves around the girl. “Ne Hikaru, Haruhi was staring at us, you think we’re hot right?” Kaoru said silkily, rubbing his cheek against Haruhi’s.
Hikaru could almost feel the heat rising from Haruhi’s neck to her cheeks. He whispered against her ear, “Don’t worry Haruhi, we find you hot too.”
Haruhi shivered as Hikaru’s warm breath blew against her ear. She wasn’t able to say anything more as the twins carted her off in the direction of the living room.
And later, much later as the hours dragged on and she nodded off into sleep in the middle of explaining cerebrum, cebellum and medulla oblangata–she found herself truly lost for words.
She woke up slowly, the moonlight that lay on her eyelids forcing her off her slumber. At first, she was too dazed to realize her surroundings, she thought that she fell asleep sitting up in the chair and that the twins left her to sleep there. Her body was so stiff! She stifled a yawn as lucidity returned in a flash! With a gasp, she realized her hands were loosely tied behind the chair by silk ties. Her school jacket also lay discarded at her feet. She lifted her eyes from the garment and found herself looking into two pairs of very amused golden eyes. “Hikaru, Kaoru, what’s the meaning of this?” she asked crossly. She tried to maintain her cool but the way the twins were looking at her made a shiver dance down her spine.
Hikaru and Kaoru both stepped into the moonlight. They were both bare-chested but still wearing their school pants. They both looked at Haruhi, their eyes moving over her from the top of her head to her toes.
“You know Haruhi, we’ve played a couple of pranks on you,” started Hikaru.
“But they were all kid’s stuff and it’s something we did just to get your attention,” finished Hikaru.
The twins stepped closer to Haruhi as Hikaru leaned down and ran a teasing finger down her neck. “You see, we really like you a lot,” said Hikaru.
Kaoru moved behind her and pressed a hot kiss against the nape of her neck. “And we thought it’s about time we played together–for real.”
A/N: Review! Review! Review! 15 would make me very happy.
