Summary: There was something about that boy. Something almost magical.
A/N: Because I’m always enchanted by Takaki. Really. It’s the truth. *Groans* I need more sleep. Happy belated birthday, Yuuyan!

Yabu stared at the figure on stage in awe. The dim lights outlined the person’s features in all the right places. There was something about him. Something intriguing, fascinating, captivating.

He said this because every time he looked at Takaki, he would be under some kind of spell that had been cast upon him without him knowing. He couldn't take his eyes of off him. He was bewitched.

The boy was popular. He seemed to attract people like how flowers attracted bees. But Yabu couldn’t blame them-- his presence was vexing.

“You’re staring at him again.” A voice interrupted his thoughts. It was his best friend, Hikaru.

“W-what?”

“Why don’t you just tell him you like him?”

“But I don’t like him,” Yabu stated, a matter-of-factly with a blank face.

“You obviously do. See? You’re doing it again.”

He drifted back to his own little world, ignoring the other, not listening to the last words his best friend had said as he gazed back at the stage. He was under that spell yet again.

The moment he snapped back to reality was when the rehearsal had ended. Around him, everyone was moving with time, cleaning the place up.

Deciding to help, he got out of his chair, only to be called by the director of the play (who was also their homeroom teacher).

“Yabu-kun, we’re starting dress rehearsals tomorrow since the play is coming up next week. And I assign you as Takaki-kun’s helper.”

“E-eh?”

“You’ll be in charge of helping him. Help him dress for the different scenes, fix his make up when needed and make sure his on stage in time. Got it?”

“H-hai!”

“Good. Okay, well, that’s it for today,” he nodded to the boy, turned and left.

Yabu stood in a daze for a second. Dress him? Was he serious? He sighed. He needed to do this. It’s going to be easy, as long as I don’t mix my emotions in. He lifted his hand in a determined gesture when he heard a chuckling sound from behind, causing him to turn around.

It was Takaki.

“Yabu-kun, right?”

He nodded.

“I’m Takaki Yuya. I’ll look forward to working with you,” he flashed a smile and turned his heel to leave.

For a moment, Yabu couldn’t move. Perhaps I thought too soon. This will be hard.

-

They were alone in the dressing room. Takaki was pretty capable of doing everything by himself, why he needed a helper was beyond Yabu’s imagination. He didn't dare to look at the boy when he was undressing; he was afraid, but he didn't really have much of a choice when his name was called.

“Help me button this up will you?”

Currently, Takaki was in a white dress shirt that went over his boxers. It was opened, slightly revealing his porcelain-like chest.

Yabu’s fingers seemed to be shaking as he struggled to button the shirt up. It didn’t help that Takaki was staring at him, a smirk on his face. It also didn’t help that they were so close. The smell radiating from the younger boy was so strong that it almost drowned Yabu.

He was only on the second button, battling against it. He became so focused on it that he almost jumped when a pair of hands guided him. In a matter of seconds, after pulling on his black pants, Takaki was done, smirk never leaving his face.

The older boy took a step back.

“You seem to be nervous around me. Why is that?”

“Huh?” Yabu managed to utter, despite the fact that his heart was beating furiously.

Takaki took a step forward. “There’s no need to be nervous.” Another step. “I’m not going to eat you.”

They were only an inch apart, as Takaki’s breath hit Yabu’s face while he was squirming. “I’ve been watching you, and I can say, I like what I see…Kota.”

The latter jumped slightly as the former called him by his first name and left the room, leaving a dazed yet baffled Yabu behind.

-

The following week, the play took place. Both boys were rather busy preparing for the play; so much that they didn't really talk to each other as much. Yabu was glad since he didn't see much of Takaki because whenever the younger boy was around him, he tensed up, especially after what had happened.

It was on the last scene, where Takaki died because of the one he loves. The character he was playing had sacrificed his life in order to save the people of the kingdom. When it ended, the audience cheered and clapped, some cried and some laughed.

Yabu knew that all these responses were because of the way Takaki portrayed the character. He always managed to win people’s hearts and Yabu figured that Hikaru was right; he did like Takaki because his heart seemed to have been stolen.

And he was afraid.

-

Before all the casts had to go bow and curtsy in front of the audience, Takaki had to change into the white dress shirt again and Yabu knew he had to help the boy.

It was supposed to be a quick change but this time, Takaki seemed to be taking his time. Yabu knew that if the boy was late, the teacher would scream at him so he approached the younger boy and took off the costume he was wearing.

Takaki watched the whole time as Yabu’s fingers moved, and as the way his face scrunched in frustration. He was stripped of his clothes down to only his boxers.

“Hurry up and get dressed,” Yabu commanded, a little impatient.

Instead of following the older boy’s command, Takaki grabbed Yabu and pressed him against his bare chest, leaning in and kissed Yabu's soft lips.

Yabu’s eyes widened in bewilderment as he pushed Takaki away. His hands were at his chest as he was heaving heavily.

“I…I can’t. I c-can’t...”

He was about to leave, but the other boy grabbed and kissed him again--harder this time. He writhed, trying to get away. However, before he knew it, he was replying to the kiss, intoxicated by the sweet taste. The younger boy wrapped his arms around the other’s waist as he pulled him closer until he closed the distance between their bodies.

Yabu let himself explore the other's body. His hands traced the curves of the others back, the muscles on his arms and his soft and delicate locks of hair. They pulled away after what felt like an eternity, face flushed.

They just stood there, staring into each others eyes until Yabu glanced at his watch.

“Eh?! You’re already late! Quickly– get dressed!”

Takaki slipped on his shirt and pants in no more than 10 seconds. The older boy fidgeted anxiously.

“Don’t fret so much, I’ll give an excuse to the teacher.” Takaki pecked Yabu’s cheek and whispered into his ear, “I’ll be back for you.”

Miraculously, Takaki got on stage just in time and in the distance, Yabu watched as the younger boy bowed and he smiled to himself contentedly.

-

“Where are we going? Shouldn’t you be at the after-party?” Yabu asked as he was dragged up a hill.

“I don’t want to go. I’ve spent three months with them and it’s getting boring. Right now, I just want to spend time with you. Ah, we’re almost there.”

After a few more tumbles, they reached the top of the hill. Yabu gasped at the beautiful scene in front of him. The sun was setting behind the horizon and hues of purples and oranges painted the sky.

He looked to his side and found that Takaki was staring intently at him. Takaki’s smile was dazzling; the contrast between his tanned skin and the colours of the sky was stunning, his copper brown locks shined against the dim light radiating from the sun.

Everything was so gorgeous. Everything was so lovely. Everything was so…enchanting.

Both boys leaned in and they shared a sweet, soft and slow kiss.

No, it was Takaki alone who was so…

...Enchanting.


END.
