Charlotte and Takashi take a moment in between testing in Watari's lab.
Testing was wearing me out. Watari said that it's helping him with his research. Truth is, it's tiring me out every day. I don't even know what he wants. I flopped back on my couch in my living room.
"Damn it," I muttered, "And I have to work today too?" I shook my head to myself.
"You okay?" I heard over my head. I glanced up and found Takashi beside me. I gave him a small smile.
"Yes," I said, "I'm just tired." He felt around for my hand on the couch. I took hold of his for him. He's such a sweet guy. I almost want him to be my boyfriend.
"How much more with this?" Takashi asked. I sighed as I looked at his gorgeous face.
"A couple of weeks," I answered. I groaned at that statement. "I don't know how much longer I can hold out," I complained.
"I'm here for you, you know," he told me.
"Yes," I said. A random thought occurred in my head. "Takashi-kun," I spoke up.
"Yes?" he asked.
"Could you kiss me?" I asked. I had never seen his cheeks so red.
"I'm not asking so much," I said, "Just one kiss."
"What?!?" Takashi blurted out.
"It's okay," I said, "I won't have sex with you. Just one kiss."
"You sure?" he asked.
"Yes," I said, "I won't even use tongue." He still hesitated at first. Finally, Takashi bowed his head.
"Alright," he said. Takashi leaned down and gave me a gentle kiss on the lips. I placed my hand on his cheek. My heart flipped in excitement. I'm not supposed to feel this way, but I can't help it. Takashi pulled away and I felt cold. It's over already? I looked up at Takashi.
"Why don't you lie down with me?" I asked. His face looked so red.
"Char-chan!" he yelped.
"It's okay," I insisted, "I won't do anything." He didn't move for a long pause. That angel moved to my side and lied down beside me. I held his hand the whole time. I kissed him on the forehead.
"See?" I asked, "Not so bad, is it?"
"No," he said. I pushed his some of his hair out of his face. He'd be the perfect boyfriend. It's a shame that Takashi can't understand concepts like that. He's still learning about sex. I'm tempted to sleep with him again. Somehow, that doesn't seem like a good idea.
"Takashi-kun," I spoke up.
"Hm?" he asked.
"How much do you like me?" I asked.
"What do you mean?" my angel asked. I rested my head against his chest.
"I think I've fallen in love with you," I admitted. He held me in his arms. I pressed my lips together. Was it okay to say something like that? Am I really in love with him?
"Do you understand what I'm saying?" I asked.
"I'm not sure," Takashi answered. His grip tightened around my body.
"That's okay," I said. I took in the moment between us. "I have more testing tomorrow," I spoke up.
"Alright," Takashi told me. I stayed in his arms somewhat satisfied. This will do for now, I suppose.
