Chapter 1



He watches as more blood trickles out and he starts to pull along the handle, red spots staining the white carpet beneath his feet. They form a pattern and Tegoshi wonders if he should do something about it.

Too late.

He lifts his head and his hand stops in midair. It is at that very moment when everyone else walks back into the room and stands still, stunned. He looks up at them and smiles. And then he speaks.

"Ne, how does it look? It’s pretty, isn’t it?"


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The day he wakes up is the day he realizes that things have changed. Nothing big, no, really. Just flitting moments that slip the mind, the times when he has his meals or visits the washroom. He sees, feels the stares that burn his back, but he doesn’t understand why.

Nevertheless, life goes on and today was- today is still, a fine day. He takes a bite of the donut given to him by Massu moments ago, who hurried, no, scurried off immediantely. He looks around the room to find Ryo and Yamapi huddled on the sofa, chatting softly. And then he sees Shige, sweat lining his forehead as he focuses on studying. Everything seems okay, normal to say the least.

What he doesn’t see are the odd glances, slight and quick, the distances, tiny and subtle ones. He also doesn’t notice the weird tones they take when they speak to him. Doesn’t notice hell of a lot actually, like how they don’t touch him anymore, how they just don’t want to.

To him, life was as perfect as could be.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a room filled with darkness and gloom. And he barely makes out the struggling figure backed against the wall at his side. Strangely, he can’t make a sound, can’t move. But he watches, simply watches in fascination as he realizes the figure is bounded, masked and his eyes- his eyes are filled with fear. He notes, conveniently, that the figure is naked.

He squints hard, so very hard. But he doesn’t seems to recognize him. And so he reaches out, tries to touch him. Just then, a shadow appears. It makes Tegoshi’s skin crawl, gives him goosebumps.

“I bought your favourite, ne?” the new figure brings up something, puts it in his face. The masked man simply shoves the figure, hard. The figure stumbles back in surprise.

“Why? Don’t you want it? Even after all the trouble I went through to get it?” The tone he takes is strange, uneven.

Tegoshi notes that the figure is smiling, the smile is menacing. “You know, you know, I’ll tell you what I’ll do.” His voice is sweet, like poisoned honey. “You’re gonna eat this, whether you like it or not. And I promise, you’re gonna love it.” The shadowed figure smirks, hands moving to lift and mask and shoves it down the other’s throat. Pieces of bun litter his face as the masked man resists. But it doesn’t matter. He kneels down to his side, fumbles in his bag, takes a bite and kisses the masked man with force. All this, Tegoshi notes, all this doesn’t make sense.

The masked man kicks and kicks, shoves with his body and tries to escape, but the lack of food and water has exhausted him. His movements slow down, bit by bit, energy leaving his body. And finally- finally, he stops moving. Tegoshi gasps sharply, voice lost in his throat and waits for a voice, a jerk, anything. There is none.

He lets out a shaky breath, fingers clenching his curled up body when he realizes that the man is dead and the murderer is out of sight. As if out of instinct, he reaches out, fingers tracing the mask. Lifting it off, he lets out a scream.

It is Massu.

A dedication. YAY!!!! I love those, and it's about as close as someone will ever come to saying "We're going to name our baby after you!"

And because you know that I have a problem with who's on top, I would like to thank you for making it clear in this fic. And my my massu, someone's got real dark fantasies there.

First, tops to the bolded, underlined and italicized words. Especially naked. How did you know I like that word most of all?

Although this sounds cliche, I think the first paragraph + line are the best.
He watches as more blood trickles out and he starts to pull along the handle, red spots staining the white carpet beneath his feet. They form a pattern and Tegoshi wonders if he should do something about it.

Too late.


Even though too late, is just two words, I find that it captures so much meaning, not just in this little prolouge, but in the whole master orchestra of your series.

And of course, there is just all sorts of wacked up, insanely beautiful, horribly disturbing, shockingly moving shit, about your best friend abusing you with donuts via the naked masked man disguise. And I think ultimately, it's Massu who steels the light here.

(nice layout. Damn you)
Marieginamariegina on January 6th, 2009 02:04 pm (UTC)
haha, IF I have a baby XD

lol, massu's dead =(

lol oh you dirty woman >D dirty minded cat,

AND YOU KNOW WHAT. THATS MY FAVOURITE PHRASE TOOO <3333

(IKR! i have plenty where that came from)

oh my gosh...
I still couldn't get the picture perfectly, though I have some deductions.
And massu, a victim..
Ah well, can't wait for your next update...^^
Marieginamariegina on January 8th, 2009 04:52 pm (UTC)
hmm, i think im blatantly obvious.
omichan92omichan92 on January 10th, 2009 04:40 am (UTC)
ohmygosh you werent kidding when you said it was getting darker as it goes on. but i like it, in a twisted and sadistic sense xDD and the last bit about the masked man and the murderer was simply awesome. and it being massu *lipwibble* was totally unexpected, it gave me a shock when i read that it was massu! D: but cool. and i like the fact that its dark :D keep on writing! i want to see where it goes :D
Marieginamariegina on January 10th, 2009 04:50 am (UTC)
i totally wasn't >3 haha, i love it when you approve, and i still love it when you don't. *gives tissue* im sorry for killing massu but thats the best effect! ilu sze ♥
omichan92omichan92 on January 10th, 2009 02:44 pm (UTC)

WHAT DID JUST HAPPEN
Marieginamariegina on May 4th, 2014 04:21 pm (UTC)
I might as well tell you since I'm no longer writing this story. Tegoshi reads a book he bought as stress relief and starts having nightmares of scenes from the book, but with people in his life instead of the book characters. The lines between reality and fantasy are blurred ...and I'll leave you to imagine the rest :P

that is what I thought would happen. uhhh it's really good though, I loved it! what a shame you didn't continue. still, thanks so much for these 2 chapters :D

also, I guess it's rare for a news fan to have an randy harrison icon... or at least I never saw anyone having one LOL /screams/ so I suppose you watched QaF too? (Duh)
Marieginamariegina on May 8th, 2014 02:27 pm (UTC)
aww, thanks. yeah, I left the fandom for 3, 4 years? I mean, I became dormant and only knew major news; didn't even care for the releases because the complications of life ;)

yep! I never saw another fan who liked Randy Harrison too. I loved it and I'll always love it. It has a special spot in my heart. The US equivalent of Gravitation (if you watch/read that too). I loved the dynamics between Gale and Randy. Legendary couple, I'd say.
