Episode 1~ Innocent kids
Back then... Hitoshi and I were innocent kids.
I stood hiding behind my mother as Hitoshi's father introduced himself to my parents. Hitoshi kept his eyes on my parents until I poked my head from behind my mothers leg. His father raised an eyebrow, It was evident he hadn't expected my parents to bring me along with them. I hid behind my mother again, but she placed me in front of the two. "This is my son Takayuki. He's quite shy."
I stared at the man and his boy. The man, who my parents were meeting on this important business meeting had snow white hair and eyes that had a little bit of every color. His son had the same snow white hair but his eyes were ruby red.
He extended his hand, "My name is Hitoshi Tsuyoshi."
I looked at my mother as she motioned for me to shake the boys hand. I adverted my gaze as my sweatshirt covered hand touched his.
"Hito why don't you take Takayuki out to the gardens, while the Yamiyo's and I discuss some business?" The boy nodded and upon his father's request took me out of the room.
As time passed neither the boy nor I uttered a word. I looked over to the boy, as I finally finished my surprise for him. I ran towards him and placed the flower crown on his head. I gave him a soft smile. "Y-you look like a p-prince Hitoshi-kun!" He gave me a smile as he continued to watch me. I squirmed under his gaze waiting for him to speak.
"Mr. Tsuyoshi!!! Mr. Yamiyo!!! You're parents are waiting for you!!" A woman in a pants-suit yelled. I stood up but stopped as soon as I felt him grab my arm.
"Do you like it here?" I nodded. "W-would you come back?" I nodded, giving Hitoshi a smile.
He returned the smiled and grabbed my hand dragging me towards the woman.
And that's how our friendship started, every day after school I'd follow Hitoshi to his home, and did whatever he asked me to do. Whether it be playing with him, talking to him, or even hiding away from him, I always listened to him, after-all that was what my whole body had trained me to do.
But today was different Hitoshi wasn't leading me to his playroom or the gardens he was sneaking me off his property to show me his secret place. A place that only he knew about... until that day.
Hitoshi gestured towards the large weeping willow, grinning towards me. "This is my secret place!!" I sat down as Hitoshi grabbed his 'treasure' admiring the view, and how the tree truly hid you from the world.
Hitoshi set out his treasures grinning. He showed me each one, telling me how he found it, and why he kept it. I was in awe until.
"And this is a necklace!" He said with a toothy grin. "It's kind of like yours!"
Even then I knew... an 'omega' without their collar was one that was in danger. "Where did you find this Hito? We need to return this immediately!" I yelled.
He sighed. "It's my mother's Taka!" I looked him deeply in the eyes as he extended his arm out, gesturing for me to take it.
He didn't listen to me as he placed the collar in my hands. "I want you to have it... as proof of our friendship." His head found its place in my neck as he hugged me. "And as my future lover!" He said with an evil grin. I laughed, and placed the collar in my pocket.
"I'll keep it... BUT ONLY AS A TOKEN OF FRIENDSHIP!!!" I yelled as I ran towards his property.
"HEY YOU!!!" He began chasing after me.
I sighed holding on to the collar he had gifted to me 12 years ago. I smiled as I put it on.
My mother smiled to me. "You know I can buy you a prettier... more durable one right sweetie?"
I smiled. "No... this one has meaning mom." I placed my hand on top of the collar. "Well I have to go to school! I love you Mom See you later!"
