Kame carried the bags upstairs and opened the door to his and Ryo's apartment. He smelled the special scent he loved most, and smiled when he walked into it.
„Do you have everything now?“ Pi asked from behind and saw Kame nodding at him. “Yes, thanks, that was the last one. I am glad to be back here, I really missed the apartment, but I was glad to be with my parents.”
“Are you going to visit him now?” Tegoshi sat on the couch and looked back at the others.
“Yes, I wanted to drive there, do you want to join?” Kame suggested and saw both of them swallowing. Both visited him once, but somehow it was hard for them to accept the situation. They admired Kame's strength and optimistic way of thinking. Kame smiled at them and both agreed going with him.
“Hey, Ryo look who's here, Pi and Tegoshi.” Kame put his coat above the chair and walked up to the bed, where he stroked the other one's cheek softly. For Pi and Tegoshi it was a strange situation, because they weren't used to talk to someone who couldn't answer or react in any kind of way, but they knew Ryo could hear them, or maybe not really hear, but feel that they were there for him.
Tegoshi made the first step and walked up to Ryo. “Hey Ryo, it's me, Tegoshi or Tego-njan, like you were used to call me. Sorry for not coming that often, but I was in a bigger hurry during the last weeks.” He touched his shoulder slightly but stepped back immediately. He looked up at Kame, who just smiled at him. Tegoshi knew Kame understood his feelings. He wasn't used to be here day by day and he actually had no idea how to deal with it.
“Please Ryo, come back to us.” Pi only said before he left the room. He couldn't stand the silence and the picture of his best friend in this state. It was unbearable for him to watch Ryo there, and more and more he understood why Kame needed some time till he realized what happened.
Kame walked out to them and saw Pi and Tegoshi looking on the ground. “Come on guys, cheer up.”
“How can you be that optimistic and in such a good mood, Kazuya?” Tegoshi coraked and saw Kame's smile disappearing a bit. “What shall I do? Sitting at home and crying all day long? He is still with me, even though it's like he is sleeping, but he is there, I can feel it, and I see this as my energy to move forward.” Both nodded at him, even though they weren’t really understanding it.
“I think we go now, but tell him we will visit him again, and next time we will stay longer, and maybe we get used to the situation.” Pi answered and tried to smile at the other one. Kame nodded before he opened the door to Ryo's room and stepped back in.
“Ryo, they can't handle the situation I am already used to. But they promised to come again, and I think they will. Ah, I forgot to tell you that I moved back to our apartment today. You know I lived with my parents during the last weeks, because they supported me. But I longed for our home, I wanted to be back at the place I love most. And I can tell you, your scent is still there, and I enjoyed it so much being back. But now I am here with you, and I wanted to tell you another piece of your life today. It's the day we finally got together after you told me that we are only friends.”
Kame walked out of the room and tried to get some fresh air. It was the second month in the new school, and everything turned out to be great for him. He found two great friends with Pi and Tegoshi, and then there was Ryo, with whom he was in love with, but Ryo told him some time ago, that they would become good friends, so Kame took this as a rejection from the other one's side.
But the little hope in his belly was still there, because he could see Ryo's glance in his eyes and the way he was talking with him was so different from Pi and Tegoshi, but maybe he interpreted too much in it.
“Hey, Kazuya are you enjoying the party?” one of Kame's classmates walked up to him and he nodded shortly at him. “Sure, it's a great party, and thanks for inviting me.”
“Ah, of course I invited you. You know I really like you.” Kame’s heart beat faster at that words and he didn't know how to react. He liked the boy, but he didn't feel anything further for him. He saw Ryo standing some steps away, listening to their conversation. “Ano, thanks, I like you too.”
“Maybe we can go out together on weekend?” the boy stepped closer and Kame tried to make some steps backwards, but he reached the wall behind him. In the corner of his eyes he could see Ryo staring at him. “I am sorry, but I think you misunderstood something, I am not in that way interested in you.”
The boy blinked at that and smiled sadly. “I am sorry, I didn't want to exert pressure on you, I just thought maybe we share the feelings. But I think I know where your heart is.” He turned around a bit and smiled at Ryo before he left the roof.
Kame breathed in deeply and closed his eyes for a moment before he looked at Ryo, who walked back to the room. Kame sighed deeply and joined the party again, but he couldn't really concentrate on something else than Ryo, who chatted with various mates. Kame couldn't stop staring at the other one's smile. He didn't know if Ryo recognized what happened on the roof right before, but it seemed like he didn’t, because he chatted and went on like nothing happened.
Kame knew the day would come where he had to admit his feelings, because he couldn't carry it around forever, and when he saw someone stroking Ryo's cheek softly, he ran up to them and pulled on Ryo's hand. “Can we talk?”
Ryo followed him outside and stumbled behind him because of the fast steps Kame made. They stopped somewhere behind the wall and Ryo stared at the other one in utter surprise, but he started to smile when he saw Kame's deep red cheeks. “I am sorry that I disturbed your little flirt, but I wanted to tell you something important.” Kame started and bit on his lips when he thought of his next words.
“You rejected the school's most famous guy, do you know that?” Ryo said out of the blue grinning brightly. Kame blinked at that and felt Ryo's hand pulling on his sleeve. “I saw his sight resting on me when he left the roof, and I heard him saying that you fall for someone else than him.”
“I am sorry, Ryo. I understand if you do not feel the same, because you already told me that we are only friends, and I...” Kame stuttered, but Ryo interrupted him. “I never meant that we could only be friends, but I didn't know that your feelings where these kind of feelings, if I would have known it back then, I'd said something else, but I didn't know you properly when we had the picnic.”
Ryo took the other one's hand and stepped a bit closer, till he was able to put his hand around Kame's waist. He bent forward and placed a soft kiss on Kame's lips, before he started to kiss him more fiercely.
“I don't know how long we stayed on the roof kissing each other, but I remember the sunrise, so I think we were there for at least some hours. I was so jealous when I saw the boy stroking your cheek, Ryo. My belly started to twist and turn painfully, and my brain switched off. I just had to tell you about my feelings, no matter what you'd say about it. I hoped you listened to the conversation I had right before with the “famous boy”, and I hoped you recognized that it was always you I wanted to have. And luckily it really turned out to be like this.” Kame stroked Ryo's hand and smiled brightly. “Look, Ryo, I am still smiling when I think about this evening, it was the best day I ever had, and let me tell you, you are a great kisser.” Kame laughed and kissed Ryo's lips shortly before he stood up.
“I have to go now, Ryo-chan, our apartment is waiting for me. I wanted to change some furniture, do you remember, we always talked about something new, but we never had the time to do it, and now I wanted to take the time and use it for our home. I come to visit you tomorrow, and I will tell you about something more embarrassing, okay, maybe not embarrassing because of the situation, but it will be hard to tell you about it. Good-bye, till tomorrow.”
Kame walked out of the hospital and drove back to the apartment. He opened the bags and put out the new stuff he bought, which he and Ryo always wanted to buy, but never had the time to do it.
