Kenma was gobsmacked. You had never made a sound like that before and he was hooked.
He was so into it that he forgot to slow down his pumping hand and you had to grab his wrist to stop him.
“Wow,” you panted, flopping back onto the bed once you had pushed his hand away from you.
Kenma just sat there looking at his wet hand and fingers.
“I’m just going to wash this… I’ll be back,” he said softly, staring at his hand as he got off the bed and heading to the bathroom to clean up while you lay there.
“Well that was far better than going to the prom for sure,” you announced into Kenma’s empty room, smiling to yourself while you stared at the roof, resting while your body recovered from the climax.
Kenma returned shortly, a lot calmer than he had been a few minutes ago, and you rolled your head to the side to smile at him.
“Hey,” you greeted. You didn’t really have any other way to greet him so just went for the clean cut ‘hello’ over anything else.
He sat down on the bed then lay down next to you.
The next embrace and kiss that you shared was, by far, the most intimate and loving you had ever had with him. It felt like it answered all the questions you had had about him and your relationship up until this point, and promised everything good for the future.
“I dunno how to describe this but I just feel… peaceful,” you thought as you held him close.
Later that night, after you had put your underwear, and some of Kenma’s clothes on, you texted Lolita to let her know that you would be staying at his place that night.
You explained briefly about the prom thing but then said that you’d explain it better the next day in person. That night had been amazing anyway so you were actually happy that you hadn’t gone to the prom.
The next morning Kenma offered to take you out for breakfast.
“I’m definitely not wearing that out in public again,” you said with a mortified look on your face as you stared harrowingly at your crumpled prom outfit, which had been thrown on the floor… and now claimed by Kenma the cat.
“You can use my clothes?” Kenma offered nonchalantly, pointing to his wardrobe.
“But I’m already in your clothes.” You grabbed the soft fabric of his Neko shirt and pulled it out for him to see.
“Just pick something different to wear?” he offered, “I don’t care…”
You had been in his clothes many a time. It was always a comfort to you so getting to move from one Kenma outfit to another Kenma outfit was double awesome!
So after having a shower and pulling his sweats and t-shirt on, you held hands and headed out to somewhere close by for breakfast.
It was a slow casual stroll. The birds were very lively today and their songs sounded a lot clearer in the late morning sun than you had ever heard them.
“Look!” You pointed up to a vapor trail being left by a plane overhead, stopping for a second to watch it.
Kenma looked up and observed the trail for a bit before looking across to you.
“You look extra happy today,” he mused softly to your radiant face.
“I feel extra happy too,” you admitted, “like I’ve leveled up or something?”
“Yeah. That’s exactly what it looks like,” Kenma said with a solid nod of his head. You were speaking his language now.
“Will we always be like this?” you then asked him, squeezing his hand a little as a mildly concerned look crossed your face.
What if you guys didn’t work out?
What if this relationship only lasted till the end of school? What if he broke up with you later that day?
Stress and overthinking took over and started to spiral you out of control but Kenma felt it. He was in tune with you now.
“Y/N,” he said, turning his body to face you, “life is a quest. I don’t want to sound dumb, but it’s true. And if I’m going to be battling monsters I want to have my best team with me. And I need my best person beside me… that person is you.”
Your stressed out heart relaxed and your face showed your relief.
“Really?” you asked hopefully.
“Yes, really,” he replied honestly, “I need you by my side.”
“Well you can count on me… I’ll always be your side character.”
“I don’t want anyone else. I just want you,” he said, leaning in to kiss you.
“I’ll always be here,” you replied in a whisper just before your lips met his.
