Pairing: Yaotome Hikaru X OC
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Comedy
Teaser: Yuuki is a cat freak.... and when I say 'freak', I mean she loves hercat so much. But when she was rejected for the 44th time, her cat suddenly became something she never dreamt of... her boyfriend??
It's been almost a month and Hikaru basically mastered the basic rules of being a human being. With the help of Yuuki and being a genius cat as he is, he already managed to identify the difference between being a cat and being a human in Yuuki's eyes. For one difference being; being a cat means everything is given favourably to you... Yet, being a human means one important thing - being Yuuki's boyfriend.
Hikaru fiddled with the tube of tooth paste for the nth time and tries to avoid Yuuki's gaze. This boy seems to be enthusiastic with the tooth paste and can't even take in the fact that it's not to be ingested.
Yet, Yuuki's quick and solid glare landed immediately on Hikaru who is now in the middle of tasting the paste.
"BAKA!" Yuuki suddenly smacked Hikaru's head lightly and grabbed the tub of tooth paste from his hand... "I told you this is not food! And we're on a public place... Act normal!!" she continued before taking a sip from her juice.
These two decided to have their special 'date' as part of 'master and pet' bonding. It is just a fact that Hikaru is still amazed by the tooth paste and even decided to bring it out with him. Yes! Even a genius cat can't resist the power of minty toothpaste!
By this, Hikaru frowned and just pulled his chair near Yuuki's figure. He suddenly stretched out his hand on the seat and put his arms around Yuuki's shoulder. Yuuki blinked twice seeing Hikaru do this action. Her cat Hikaru is making 'the legendary MOVE' on her.
Yuuki then felt the urge to slap Hikaru's hand away which is enough to make Hikaru wince. Yet, a sudden chuckle was left off by Yuuki within the fact that this perfect looking boy is still in the midst of acting as her 'boyfriend'.
"Uwahh~ she's so cute!!!!!" Yuuki's chain of thought were sudden broken when a sudden amused tone of voice was heard from Hikaru's mouth. Hikaru is now looking at the table opposite theirs and landed on the cat sitting on the floor.
Hikaru's eyes twinkled as he eyed the cat and bashfully scratched his head like a real flailing teenager. Seriously... This guy is flailing over a female cat?
Yuuki blinked twice after seeing this and just can't help but to pull Hikaru's ears to make him face her.
Hikaru is a former cat! Of course it's natural that he'll have a crush on a girl feline. This thought however irritated Yuuki after feeling a painful clutch on her chest.
"Stop flirting with a cat, Baka!" Yuuki stated, hindering Hikaru to stare towards the next table.
"eh? Why not? Don't tell me you're jealous Yuuki-chan?" Hikaru grinned at the slightly blushing Yuuki and waited for an answer. Yet, Yuuki just turned away in response and tried to avoid any eye contact.
"Seriously Yuuki? You're jealous over a cat? What the heck!!!" Yuuki whispered to herself while pinching her left cheek. She knows for a fact that she likes Hikaru now - not as a pet but as a person. She's just afraid what the future awaits them.
Yuuki was about to deny the 'jealous' thing to Hikaru but a sudden individual greeted the couple.
"Yuuki-chan?" Kota Yabu leaned down their table to clearly see Yuuki's complexion. Yuuki on the other hand just went frozen on her place after seing the face of the man who recently dumped her. She felt her own heart beating fast and even remembered every detail of her failed confession. Indeed, if it wasn't for Hikaru, she can never move on.
"glad to see you here... How are you?" Yabu beamed at her without even minding Hikaru's existence on the next seat.
"I-I'm fine..." Yuuki uttered, still struggling to find an appropriate topic to discuss. She then saw Hikaruto gazing towards Hikaru's figure who is now seems to be hating the sudden appearance of Kota Yabu.
"Is he your new boyfriend?" Yabu asked with a monotonous tone (Hikaru's unfriendly looks fired at him suddenly made him uncomfortable).
Yuuki struggled to speak but tried her best to answer. All of a sudden, she stated one thing that she truly regrets... "NO!! He's not!" she said out of impulse that made Hikaru look at her with weary eyes. Hikaru then looked down and felt a painful stroke on his chest.
Yabu left off a relieved sigh while Yuuki wanted to whack herself by what she said. She knows herself that Hikaru is not her real boyfriend... But the fact that she denied and even disowned Hikaru in front of Yabu is painful enough for her.
"Souka... That's good then... Uhm~ I mean..." Yabu said abruptly which was enough to make the atmosphere into a tense one. Hikaru then stood up and grabbed Yuuki's hand in the process.
"She might not be my girlfriend... But she's mine!" Hikaru said with eyes half covered by his hair. Yuuki cannot see his whole complexion but she can feel something different from him - not like the usual Hikaru.
"What was that about?!!" Yuuki said while looking at Hikaru's hand still linking to hers. Both of them seem to be just walking in circles but Hikaru is still not speaking up for a decent explanation on his weird actions earlier.
"HIKARU!!! I order you to stop!!" she almost shouted and even gained a few pairs of eyes to their direction. By this, Hikaru just dropped her hand and faced her fully.
"You order me like a master would do to their cats... For your information Miss Hoshino, pets have feelings too. They can get mad, annoyed and even get jealous... Humans are not the only ones with those feelings!" Hikaru reprimanded with his mind reminiscing on how Yuuki denied him to Yabu earlier.
"What are you jealous about? It's not like you're my real boyfriend..." Yuuki's pride suddenly swallowed her whole and just can't accept the fact that she's being lectured by her own pet. This is their first time arguing and Yuuki doesn't intend to lose to a cat! Like hell she would!!
"Do you still like Yabu-kun?" he asked.
"Just answer my question Yuuki-sama..." Hikaru said 'mockingly' with a sarcastic tone on his voice with pushed Yuuki down her limit. She then felt her brows meeting and glared at the taller boy in front of her.
"YES!!" she lied to protect her remaining pride. She knows she likes Hikaru but seeing Hikaru act like an immature being made her quite furious... "YES! I still like him... Why do you care?!! You're just my cat!!"
Awkward silence filled the place...
It took about a few seconds before Hikaru spoke. These seconds of silence was like eternity as Yuuki felt a strangling feeling on her neck. By this time, she wanted to take back all her words earlier - realising how stupid she was. But then, Hikaru spoke...
"I'm here to make my master happy... I'm sorry I got a bit carried away... I'll be forever your cat"
