A/N- Inspired by Mirai Nikki.
I didn't use any Japanese honorific because it would be hard for people to remember the first and last names of every character and I'm not familiar with it.
I didn't know what came over me that day but I did it. I finally did it.
I was standing in front of my crush of two years about to deliver the confession that I had so carefully rehearsed under the covers of my bed for the past few months. My legs were beginning to shake and a sweat ran down my temple. She probably thought I was a creep for bringing her out like this. Before lunch had ended, I had purposely waited for her to leave her desk like she always would and snuck a simple note under it. Meet me behind the school building, it had said.
"Um..." The girl in front of me looked at me with her pale violet eyes and blinked innocently. Her name was Luna. "Why did you tell me to meet you here?"
"Well, uh... I..." I didn't know what I was going to say. Luna looked at me patiently but nothing else came out from my mouth. The lines I had carefully prepared beforehand escaped my mind. Luna was dressed in the conventional Japanese uniform consisting of stockings that went up to the middle of her thighs, a short skirt and a collared shirt hidden behind a jumper. She had dark black hair falling to her shoulders. Her hair emphasised the paleness of her skin and her pink lips stuck out boldly as well. The pair of pale violet eyes blinked at me again.
"You didn't take me out here to confess to me right?" Luna said in a joking tone. She giggled slightly and I saw a light smile touching her face. A shade of red disturbed the paleness of her cheeks. My heart leaped as it somehow seemed like she had read my thoughts. I opened my mouth to say yes but something from the back of my head stopped me. This was Luna I was talking to, it wasn't just any random girl. She was one of the most popular girls in the school renowned for her academic ability and beauty. The only reason she would say such a ridiculous idea to someone like me, was to stop me from even asking the question in the first place.
"No..." I said slowly, my eyes watching her for a reaction. She looked disappointed.
"Oh..." Luna said looking down.
I rubbed the back of my head awkwardly and looked to my side. There was no way she was actually disappointed that I had said no. I was a nobody compared to Luna. My grades at school were terrible to say the least, and I was not good looking. I was pretty average. Luna and me were in the majority of the same classes for two years now, but this was one of the first time I had ever seriously spoken to her. I never had the chance to talk to her since she was so popular at school. There was always people around Luna.
"So what did you call me here for then?" Luna asked.
I looked back at Luna and found her pale violet eyes staring at me. She was even cuter to look at from upfront than afar. I felt my heart beating faster at her stare. There was no way she would actually say yes if I asked her out, but I still really wanted to give it a try at the very least. I had finally called her out and this could be the only chance I would get to talk to Luna alone. There might never even be an opportunity like this again. I swallowed and nodded my head slightly deciding to confess to her.
"What I wanted to tell you is..."
A sudden heat surged through my body and my heart was racing. Luna looked at me anxiously but my eyes had dropped down to her shoes. I could feel my cheeks burning against my face and I knew my face was red. She probably thought I looked like an idiot. I didn't even realised but my fists were tightly closed against my sides. There were only a few words I had to say left but the words refused to escape from my mouth.
Luna shifted uncomfortably in the silence and I drew a breath.
"I like you so please go out with me!"
I bowed my head down and closed my eyes preparing for her response.
I had done it now. There was no going back. I felt like an idiot, but relieved at the same time. I had actually said it. The words I had been meaning to tell her for so long.
For a while, there was nothing but silence and the sounds of insects in the background. The sound of my heart thumping against my ribcage was deafening.
I rose up slowly to look at Luna when I felt something crashing into me. The sky and ground switched places and I opened my eyes. Luna was lying on top of me. I couldn't believe it. Why was she on top of me? Did she trip over? It didn't feel like it at all! It had felt like she simply ran into me intentionally. Panic was stretching across my mind and all I could think of was that I had somehow done something wrong.
Luna gave me a look of desperate longing. It was a look I had never seen on her face before. I didn't understand what was going on at all.
"Are you alright-" I started but I was interrupted.
Luna leaned in towards me, her eyes closed and suddenly our lips touched. I felt her lips pressing onto mine and time seemed to stop. When she pulled away, I was still frozen, my mind blank.
"I was waiting so long for you to ask that." Luna said, her voice was overwhelmed with joy.
With that, Luna got up and began to walk away. I listened to the sound of her footsteps fading. I was still lying on the ground unmoving. It was only after she was gone did I started to breathe again. I exhaled deeply and my mind spun into a frenzy. What the hell was going on? Why did she kiss me? Did she say she was waiting for me to ask her out? Was I dreaming?
I raised a hand up to my face and pinched myself on the cheeks hard.
I wasn't dreaming. So Luna did kissed me. She actually kissed me. Me! Of all people. The idea seemed ridiculous but yet it had actually happened. Did that mean she liked me too all along? I felt dizzy. What did she even like about me? I couldn't believe my first kiss in my entire life was with Luna. I had never even considered the possibility not even in my wildest dreams.
I managed to pick myself up on the third try and felt myself walking home in a daze.
