Happy Valentine's Day
The following story contains Shonen-Ai and slight Yaoi. *maleXmale*
By: Limon Fern
February 14th, the day of love.
For young Gilbert, it was merely another day of trouble.
His master, 14 year-old* Oz Vessalius, was very excited about the event.
According to Oz, 'Valentine's Day is all about pleasing the one person you love!', so poor Gil had to help Oz in doing just that.
"Uhm.. Young Master, who is your love?" Gil inquired, after realizing his master had never mentioned her.
Oz laughed, "It's a secret!"
Gil mumbled, "Oh.. okay."
A moment of silence passed by and Oz spoke up, "Well, Gil, I think it's time we find a gift for my love!"
Gil nodded solemnly and followed his master to the garden.
"Young master, I do believe I saw some roses over by the garden fountain..." Gil said.
Oz agreed to look around that area and finally found what he was looking for.
It was the perfect place. Rays of sunlight shone through the tall trees, and rose bushes surrounded the two boys. You could hear the running water from the fountain and the trees swaying in the wind.
Gil reached out to pick a rose from a nearby bush.
"Ouch!" he yelped in pain when a thorn pricked him.
Oz ran over to see why Gil had screamed out.
Blood trailed down Gil's small finger and into his palm.
He looked up at Oz, who had arrived suddenly.
"A-Ah, young master, it's nothing. I just pricked my finger." he pointed out, sounding a little nervous.
His master knelt down beside him and grabbed his hand.
"Does it hurt, Gil?" Oz asked.
"Y-yes, a little..." Gil answered.
Oz lowered his face down and licked his servant's bloody finger.
"Y-young master, w-what are you doing?" Gil stammered, his face was red with embarrassment.
"Just doing what you didn't..." Oz deviously replied.
"You're supposed to clean up the blood, Gil. Since we don't have a cloth, what else are we supposed to use?"
"W-well, young master, I could have done it myself... You didn't have to--"
Oz leaned closer to Gil, so their faces barely met.
"Are you trying to insult me indirectly...?"
"N-no! N-nothing of the sort...!"
When Oz became serious like this, it usually meant he would start beating up Gil. Of course, not too much. You wouldn't want your servant to look like pulp, now would you?
Instead of beating up Gil, Oz pulled Gil closer and they met in a kiss.
Gil was startled. "Nnn...!"
Oz seemed to be having fun with his new way of bullying, but when Gil started to cry, Oz backed away.
"Hey... Gil, why are you crying...? It wasn't that bad, was it?"
Oz's servant curled up and cried. He whimpered and sniffled, which Oz found a little cute.
He patted Gil's head and said in a soothing voice, "I'm sorry, Gil... Please don't cry..."
Gil looked up at him finally. His face was very red, and his eyes were watery.
Oz laughed a bit, and lifted Gil's face up.
"Are you scared...?" he asked.
Gil shook his head.
"Then, what's the problem?"
His servant hesitated for a moment, then spoke, "I-I can't... I'm not fit to be..."
Oz knew what Gil was trying to say and, as always, was prepared.
"Eeeh? You're saying you're not fit to be my Valentine? Geez, Gil... You really are a wimp, aren't you?"
This made Gil perk up and he started to say something, but Oz put his finger over Gil's lips.
Oz grabbed a rose from the rose bush next to them. He was careful not to prick himself.
"Happy Valentine's Day, Gil..." he said offering the rose to his flustered servant, "I love you!"
*Oz is 14 in this story because it takes place, oh, you know, maybe BEFORE Oz's birthday...? If you can't handle him being fourteen, then you can read it as 15...
A Message From Limon Fern: I was at the grocery store when I thought of writing this. With all the Valentine's Day spirit that was going around, I felt I just HAD to write a Valentine's Day story for this couple! >3< Of course, I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought of it. XD Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this!~ Now, I have to get back to Wall of Hearts (or go to sleep...), so excuse me. <3 Thanks for reading! - limon
