You woke up to the sound of the birds chirping loudly outside of your window. A tired groan escapes your lips as you try to sit up from your bed until you felt an unexpected headache washing over you. You squint your eyes, carefully avoiding the sunlight rays that swept through your curtains. Your head still hurt. Just what did I do last night? You yawned tiredly as you then tried to rub the temples of your forehead in hopes of getting rid of the god-awful headache that you unfortunately woke up with.
As you were about to get up from your bed to get yourself a glass of water, you heard a quiet rustling of the sheets and your body tensed. I lived alone, you said to yourself. You had no cats, no dogs, no pets in general – your landlord has specifically said that he did not allow pets in his apartment complex. You were a Kunoichi too – you were constantly piled with missions assigned from the Hokage and thus was always busy with your own chores, leaving you no time to take care of any pets.
Cautiously, you turned your head to your right to see a person laying down comfortably next to you. Your throat instantly went dry as soon as you saw the man. You tried to think of the possibilities of who this man might have been, but your headache deemed it difficult for you to do so. You only sighed in agitation, feeling rather hopeless of your current situation. You returned your gaze at the man who had his back in front of you. From what you could tell from your perspective, he had curly black hair – wavy and messy; pointing in all sorts of directions – and was rather toned and muscular, judging from his well-defined back-muscles. At least he’s good-looking.
He’s naked, you thought to yourself quietly, let’s just hope that he has his underwear on.
Without any much resistance, you grabbed the man’s shoulder and started to shake him awake. “Hey,” You grumbled, too tired and too lazy to handle your current predicament. You shouldn’t be doing this, you thought to yourself angrily. You should’ve been taking a long rest after all those missions you’ve managed to complete. You shouldn’t be waking up a nameless man lying next to you. You shouldn’t have been awake on the first place! What you needed right now was a full’s week of relaxation and this was definitely not the way you wanted it to start.
Your brows quirked in an irritated manner once the man did not do anything to respond to you. “Hey,” You repeated, this time louder. “Get up. I don’t know who you are, but you need to get out of here.”
The man, much to your delight, finally replies but it’s not quite the reply that you were hoping to hear.
He grumbles out of annoyance and pulls the blanket sheets closer to him, “A few more minutes, babe...”
You only scoffed in response. The nerve of this man
But before you could have done anything else to wake him up, the man (who you were going to call ‘Mystery Man’ from now on until he would properly introduce himself to you) suddenly jolted out from his slumber, catching you by surprise. He looked just as confused as you were, except he was less flustered – in fact, by the looks of his face, he didn’t even seem to be shy by one bit.
The two of you stare at each other awkwardly, unsure of what to do. For some weird and unknown reason, you had suddenly lost your voice of speech – something that was quite uncharacteristic of you. By now, you would have made some witty remark, a sarcastic comment, anything. But this man had rendered you speechless. And you didn’t know what to do.
Mystery Man, on the other hand, was too lost of what to say or do. From the moment his gaze connected with yours, his throat went dry and was unexpectedly lost at words. He wasn’t really sure why. It could’ve been his head. His head was throbbing and hurting like crazy. Or maybe it was your raw beauty that got him tongue-tied.
Though not looking quite the best this morning, he still thought that you were beautiful.
Despite your tousled [h/c] hair and your unwashed face, despite the fact that you felt tired and disgusting from last night, despite the eye-bags that were forming underneath your eyes, he still thought that you were still pretty. It was your lips that had got him the most, though. Your plum, full, kissable lips – and he was quite proud to say that he was the one to place his lips on yours last night. Privately, he wondered if it were okay to kiss you again.
You snapped your fingers in front of him, catching him off-guard. Had he really been staring at you for that long? He sees you in front of him, your expressions ranging from fatigue and agitation. He laughed quietly to himself after seeing the look on your face – you had reminded him of a certain friend of his.
“Look, can you leave?” Your voice was low, but firm. “I would have left first, but I sorta live here.
You weren’t mad. Well, at least you weren’t raging with fury or anything. Shisui allowed a smile to break into his lips, making you quirk an eyebrow at him questioningly. “Sorry, sweetheart.” He said, scratching the back of his head nervously. You rolled your eyes and got out of your bed grudingly, ignoring the throbbing pain occurring in your head and mumbling something along the lines of ‘water’ and ‘shitty hangovers’ before disappearing to your kitchen.
Shisui, too, quickly got out of bed – thankfully, he already had his underwear on – and scurried around your bedroom to find his remaining clothes and putting them back on. He looks around to find a piece of paper and something to write with and scribbles a little note and then placing it on your bed before quietly tiptoeing to your exit door. He makes sure to take one last look of your apartment, a small playful smirk playing on his lips, before finally taking his leave and closing the door quietly behind him and going away.
You come back to your bedroom to find the Mystery Man gone. You weren’t sure whether you were thankful or not. You gazed at the two glasses of water you were holding and only let out a tired sigh. If he wanted to leave, then the least he could have done is tell you before doing so. You took the time and effort to grab a glass of water for him!
You set the other glass of water down on the table near you while drinking the other one. Once you were finished, you crawled back to your bed, finally glad that you finally had some alone time for yourself. As you were about to fall back asleep, you felt a piece of paper beneath you and curiously, you grabbed for it and flattened out the wrinkled paper before reading through it.
I had fun last night. Let’s do it again some other time. (;
You snorted and crumpled the paper.
Well, at least you finally knew his name.
