"This is my room!" N said proudly, beckoning me to sit down next to him on his bed. I sat down awkwardly and stared down at my feet. Not only did he live in a freaking mansion, but his room was huge and filled with plushies, puzzles, and toys as well. You'd expect a seventeen year old boy to have some pin-ups of Professor Araragi or something, but the only things I saw on his walls were pictures of him with his pokemon. He also had an entire wall covered with Rubik's Cubes, minus the few he had strewn across his bed.
"It's a... nice room, N," I said as I picked one of the Rubik's Cubes up and examined it. It was larger than a normal one and looked as if the middle square missing on each side. I tried to twist it as hard as I could but it just wouldn't work. N snatched it out of my hands with a horrified look on his face.
"Y-you'll break it!" he yelled as he clutched the shiny- looking cube to his chest.
"It's already broken- it won't even turn!" I huffed angrily at the toy with a vengeance, crossing my arms over my chest. N simply laughed and patted me on the back.
"It's not supposed to turn, White," he explained between chuckles. I puffed out my cheeks.
"What do you mean it's not supposed to turn? It's a freaking Rubik's Cube!" I yelled, picking up another one, twisting it and presenting it to N as an example. He swatted it away and feigned annoyance as he turned the red side of the one he was holding towards me. He pointed at a small black switch located in the corner and switched it on, making me jump as it began to speak.
"It's called the 'Rubik's Revolution'-" he explained, noticing my confusion. "It's actually pretty fun; I'll show you!"
He pressed down the middle of one of the sides in the place where I thought that a segment was missing. The Rubik's Revolution said something like, "multiplayer" as N handed it to me, smiling.
"Just hit the center square that lights up, okay? Then hand it over to me," he said as I took the toy from his hands. It was emitting a loud ticking noise and I turned it around frantically, looking for the light that was on. Finally I found it, pressing down the center and tossing it to N like a hot potato.
He caught it skillfully and laughed as he looked for the light himself. He found it in about half the time I took and handed it back to me looking smug. I found myself even more panicked this time as the ticking quickened. After a few seconds of fumbling with the toy, I found the light glowing on the yellow side. I pressed it desperately threw it at N , causing him to lift up an arm to protect his face.
It seemed to go in slow motion as the Rubik's Revolution bounced off his wrist towards me, N reaching after it. I reached for it as well, but I ended up leaning too far back. I closed my eyes as I fell backwards onto the soft bed with a thud. I slowly opened my eyes and blinked, instantly turning beet red. I was met with an equally red face about an inch away from my own. N was laying on top of me with the Rubik's Cube still held in his left hand, staring at me with a shocked expression. The toy cluttered to the floor and, surprisingly, N didn't even twitch. Instead, he entangled his fingers with my own and leaned in closer to me, his nose touching mine.
"...N..?" I said, barely even whispering. N shut his eyes tightly and parted his lips to talk.
"D-don't move. Just this once... don't move," he whispered back. He slowly moved in towards my face, just to the point where his lips almost grazed mine.
"C...Can I kiss you?" he mumbled. I could feel my heart beat faster as I nodded, giving him permission. I closed my eyes and my breath hitched in my throat with anticipation. He squeezed my hand with his own and used the other to cup my face. Finally closing in, N ghosted his lips over mine before pulling back. Was that it? THAT was my first kiss? He began to sit up, but I stopped him by grabbing the back of his neck with the hand he wasn't holding.
"...Y-You call that a kiss?" I stuttered, pulling his neck so his lips crashed into my own. N stiffened and widened his eyes, not responding the way I wanted him to. I unlatched his hand from my own and placed it on my waist, leaving him to figure out what to do with the other. I knew I had just about as much experience as he did with actually kissing, but I've read a lot of romance novels and girly magazines. That's got to count for something, right?
I organized my thoughts and decided on what to do. I gathered up all of my courage and nibbled slightly on his bottom lip. To my surprise he pulled away slightly before kissing me again, turning the tables to that he was chewing on my lip. He placed his hand on the nape of my neck and brought his other further underneath me so that I was lifted slightly off the bed. He ran his hand up between my shoulder blades and then down to my lower back. That was it; time for phase two of my plan.
I gently pushed pushed my tongue into his mouth. N obliged, doing the same as he began to take the lead. I never knew that he had it in him.
I was pressed tightly up against him, aand my hands were still entangled in his hair when he pulled away. We were both panting, him a bit more than me. He gulped and closed his eyes again as if he were contemplating something.
"White... if we don't stop now, I won't be able to control myself. I don't want to hurt you," he said, breathing heavily. I giggled at his cuteness and laced my fingers around the back of his neck. N's eyes widened and I smiled.
"Maybe I don't want to stop."
