As lunch ended I got up from my spot on the ground and helped Alex up as well. After Alex got up I had a feeling that I was being watched by someone but I couldn’t find anyone near us. I forgot about that and continued with Alex off to our final class for the day.
Our final class was Home E.C class, which I loved because Alex and I are in the class together, we always get to be partners in every assignment we get and I love to cook. I walked up to the door of the Home E.C class room but stopped in my tracks as Alex kept going in. Something about the classroom seemed a little dark, I tried to ignore it and continued my way in and sat down next to Alex as he grabbed my hand. I looked around the classroom and found a note on one of the desks with my name on it; I picked it up and read it while trying not to get Alex to look at it. The note said ‘Hi Ri, I just want to let you know I am always watching you and you sure seem very interested in that little Alex guy.’ I frowned at the note knowing it was from Roxy quite clearly as the note is started with the nickname she keeps giving me that I hate.
I quickly folded the note back up and placed in my pocket before the teacher or Alex could see it. I went on with the lesson feeling very confused about the note, I tried to not show my confusion around my lover as it would make him worry. He didn’t seem to catch on with my confusion as he only smiled at me the whole lesson as we worked on our dessert project.
After class was done I took Alex to my house so we could do more work on it. We did it for an hour then got bored of it and decided to take a break. I made a snack for Alex and I then turned on the TV and started to flip through the channels trying to find something to watch while Alex at his snack which was tuna, crackers and cheese. I found the channel that had Regular Show on playing at the moment. I smiled at it remember it was my mother’s favourite show so I decided to leave that on and watch it. After the first five minutes of the show I finally realised why my mother likes this show and I also started to notice that Alex was enjoying the show as well. I giggled at the look of amusement on his face as he watched the show. As the show went on I found myself also starting to enjoy it too.
As the commercials came on, I got up and left to use the bathroom for a little bit and left Alex to keep watching the TV. When I returned back from the bathroom I was Alex looking at the TV with wide eyes and a confused look on his face. I slowly approached him and noticed a commercial for Kingdom Heart 2.5 I started to panic as little then noticed Alex looking up at me. I jumped back at as he look me looked at me up and down “You are the Riku from this game aren’t you?” I took a deep breath and replied in a sad voice “Yes and I never told anyone because I didn’t want to be treated as an outsider that shouldn’t even exist in a world like this.”
I tried really hard to keep my face showing no emotions as I watched Alex get up from the couch and come over to me. I backed up from him until my back was hitting the wall and all I could do was watch Alex come even closer to me. I closed my eyes fearing what would happen but all I got was a hug from him “Don’t worry my Riku, I won’t tell anyone about this and you are still the same person I fell in love with, knowing you are from a video game won’t change who you are or how I feel about you” he said as calmly as he could. I let out a few tears and hugged him back tightly and to show how much I appreciate him for not changing his feeling because of what he knows now, I nuzzled his neck a little which made him let out a little gasp. I stopped what I was doing and looked up at him with his blushing face “You ok babe?” I asked him, he let out the breath he was holding in and looked down at me “I’m sorry about that but that was the first time someone has touched my neck like that and it caught me off guard” he answered while kissing my cheek. I giggled at that and nuzzled his neck again he thought I might have done that again so he tipped his head back a little.
I growled nicely as him tipping his head back and gave his neck a soft kiss before pulling back. He looked down at me with a blushing face and blinked a few times trying to take all that had happened in. I slipped out of his grip and went back to sitting on the couch, Alex turned and looked at me before running over and taking place on my lap. “So how long have you known you are video game character?” he question while looking up at me. I slowly placed my head on top of his “for only a few months but I’m ok with it, I love life here and really love it being with you” I answered in a soft tone while keeping him close.
An hour later I looked at the door as I watched mum walk in from work a little late and smile at us before going up to her room then I turned my attention back to the clock. I noticed it was getting late so I handed Alex the home phone and he just looked at it confused “Why did you give me the phone Riku?” he asked sounding very confused. I smiled lovingly at him “It is getting late and I don’t want you walking home in the dark. Besides it is Friday night, so why not call you call your parents and ask them if you can stay the night” I answered with my sly tone. He seemed to understand because he smiled, nodded and started to dial on the phone I gave him. I watched him waiting for the answer. I watched how he put the phone down and looked at me with tears in his eyes. I was about to wipe them away when he stopped me with a big hug “they said yes, I have been waiting for a day like this!” he shouted out loud. I smiled huge and hugged him back then he looked at me with a worried look on his face “Riku honey, I don’t have anything thing to change into for bed and by the look of your house and your room, you don’t have anywhere for a spare bed” he said half calm, half worried. I giggled at him “Don’t worry, I just wear my underwear to bed and you can sleep in my bed with me” I giggled out. I watched as his face went fully red and I ended up laughing a lot at it. He slapped my face lightly “This is not a laughing matter, this will be the first time I will be sleeping in just my underwear and defiantly be the first time sleeping in the same bed as someone else.” I stopped my laughing and hugged him close “You don’t have to worry about anything, I won’t do anything to you, you can trust me my love” I said trying to calm him and it worked he nodded at me then kissed my cheek.
