Chapter Six - The Things I Do For Us
By Fantasy Lover
Thereís a hole in the wall with the light shinning in
And itís letting me know that itís time to get up, Itís time to begin
Oh thereís nothing to lose
ĎCause Iím already lost
In a runaway world of confusion
Iím not gonna take it
- Fight Fire with Fire (Kansas)
The rising sun filled the room with light. Squall was the first to awaken as the bright light filtered through his eyelids. Slowly, he opened his eyes and re-adjusted to his surroundings. There, by his side, was his true love sleeping soundly. Not wanting to disturb Seiferís peaceful sleep, he reached above his bed and closed the shades, thus darkening the room. As he watched Seifer, he thought about the evening before. It had been fantastic, and better yet, his lover had stayed the night. It was like a dream come true for the petite man.
Squallís thoughts were suddenly disturbed, as he heard a faint knocking sound coming from the other room. Making sure not to wake Seifer, he got out of bed to answer the door.
As he pulled on his boxers, he thought, ĎWho in the hell could that be this early?í
There was only one way to find out. He opened the door which revealed the radiant smile that rested on the other side.
"Selphie. Hey, what are you doing hear?" he asked nervously.
"Donít tell me you forgot already. We were suppose to study together....Remember?"
"Oh shit! Iím sorry, Selph. I completely forgot."
"Thatís okay... You ready to go yet?" She asked before she glimpsed his black boxers. Then she giggled, "I guess not."
"Listen. Could you give me like 15 minutes or so?"
"Sure. Iíll meet you in the library."
"Good. Thanks, Selph."
He shut the door after her and walked to the bathroom in desperate need of a shower. When he looked in the mirror, he noticed that the boxers he was wearing werenít his, but Seiferís. He giggled for a moment, and then remembered that he was in a hurry. Quickly, he jumped into the shower, taking time only to lather up and rinse. This took about 5 minutes, then he jumped out and began to dry off.
ĎBetter leave a note,í he thought.
Sorry I had to leave. Studying in lib. w/
Selphie. Be back soon. Love ya!
PS Last night was great!
He got dressed after he finished his note, then made his way to the library.
"Now on to health and recovery. Letís see..." she said, thinking hard to remember, "If I remember right, Cure is the least effective magic, Cura is moderately effective, and Curaga is the most effective. Am I right?"
She looked over to Squall who seemed to be lost in his own world. Selphie began waving her hands in his face, "Squall...yoo-hoo...anybody in there? Hey, Squall!"
"Huh? Oh right....um Geezards and Grats are mortal enemies, yet they will co-habitate or something like that."
"Hon, we havenít been on enemies for a while now. Are you feeling alright? You seem a bit detached."
"Yeah. Iím fine. Listen, Selph. I donít feel much like studying right now. Could we reschedule or something?"
"Sure. You wanna grab a bite to eat?"
"No, Iím not that hungry. I just need time to think for a while."
"Well, okay. See ya later."
He gave a half hearted wave as he watched her leave. Finally some time to himself. Thoughts of the previous night flooded his mind. His quiet time didnít last too long though. Soon he was joined by Irvine.
"Yo, Squall! Howís it going?"
He had a huge grin on his face, "Great. I...." He cut himself off.
"Come on. You what?"
"Um...nothing. Itís not important," He wanted to change the subject, "So whatíve you been doing lately?"
"Not much. Oh yeah, that reminds me. I saw Seifer coming out of you room earlier. I know you like him and everything, but I think heís up to something. Want me to check it out?"
"NO!" Squall protested, "I mean...um...Iíll do it."
He got up from the desk he was at.
"Where did the asshole go, Irvine? Iíll find out what heís up to."
"I think he went back to his room. Want me to go with you Squall?"
"No, I think I can handle him..."
When he reached Seiferís place, he began pounding on the door, yelling "Open this damn door! I have to talk to you damn it! Open this fucking door before I break it down!"
There were crowds of other students gazing at the scene from a distance. No one knew what was going on, nor did they want to get close enough to find out.
It didnít take Seifer long to answer the do. He stood there for a moment, shocked at what his lover had just been saying. Then it came to him.
"What in the hell are you doing, Squall? You're gonna fucking break down my door!"
"I have to talk to you!" he said shoving Seifer inside, "I heard that you have been..." And with that, he shut the door.
"Iím sorry, Seifer. I really didnít want to do that. Itís just that..."
"I understand, babe. You were just trying to protect our secret."
"Right. And thatís exactly what I came to talk to you about."
"Is something wrong, Squall?"
"No, not really. I was just wondering...um...should we tell anyone?"
"Wow. I never really thought about it."
"Well, I think I should at least tell, Laguna. He deserves to know."
"Yeah. I guess so."
"And...um...Irvine is aware that I like you, but he doesnít know about last night. Heís the only one though."
"Oh... You know, I was thinking we should keep this under wraps for a while. I mean itís okay if you tell Laguna, but...well...you understand donít you?"
"Of course I do." He reassured Seifer with a kiss. He didnít really want to tell either. At least not yet.
It was now an hour later, and Squall was still in Seiferís dorm.
"I gotta go now, love. Iím supposed to meet Zell in the Training Center."
"You mean you're seeing another man?" Seifer teased.
"I guess you could say that. Donít worry. Iíll be back later and we could have some fun, if you know what I mean."
They both laughed, and Seifer kissed him in a way that made him melt.
"See ya, babe," Seifer grinned as Squall departed.
AUTHORíS NOTE: Man! This was a hard chapter to write. There were so many options open, and I wanted to go a little bit of everything. Iím not sure if I chose the right path, but thatís okay because it leaves so many plot twists for later.
