The End Of A Nightmare

Chapter Text

Along the halls a boy who from afar you could see dint belong there. with his black hoodie covering his black hair, big brown eyes hidden from others. Kouki Yoshihiro, a new student who got in with an arts scholarship, he stood out like a sore thumb in the hallways filled with students wearing perfect uniforms but he didn't seem to mind the attention. Kouki opened every door he could to find his friend ,who promised to meet after school. 

Damn it haruhi, where are you??.he cursed his friend while closing yet another door to an empty room.He continued roaming through the halls ,stopping informant of an abandon music room  according to the map.this is the last one,if she isn't here i'm going home.he then opened the room unaware of what awaits him.

As Kouki pushed the door open , he heard something crash on the floor.

*SMASH*


 “Eight million yen?!?!”  Haruhi exclaimed from her position on the floor

“how many thousands are there in a million…” she said with a dumbfounded expression

“there’s 8000 thousand in a million Haru-chan, I thought you would know that since you are the honor student and all” all heads turned to the door where Kouki just came in.

Ignoring the stares from the hosts, Kouki made a beeline towards haruhi.

“I looked for you everywhere Haru-chan” the male whined pulling the brunette from the floor 

“who are you mister??” Kouki only got to open his mouth when.

 “Kouki Yoshihiro, male ,17 arts scholarship student, class 2-A ” Kyoya stated earning a blank stare from Kouki.

"he's in our class?? why didn't i notice him"Tamaki looked shocked at the reveal 

"then maybe you should have paid more attention to class, instead of playing with girls. Suoh-san"

"What happened, did they do something to you haru-chan??" he looked at the pieces of ceramic on the floor

*After all the explaining and stuff*

"you did it now haru-chan" Kouki laughed at haruhi while messing up her hair.

“well what should we do Tamaki?” kyoya said looking at a piece of the vase he picked from the floor.

“there’s a famous saying. When in Rome you should do as the Romans do. Since you have no money, you can pay with your body”.where did all the flowers come from is he hiding them in his clothes or something.

“prostitution?? i'll be glad to please you if you pay me enough" Kouki holds up tamaki's chin with his finger. he doesn't't look that bad. Tamaki's face turned pale deprived of all colors. But he quickly snapped back

"that's not what i meant!!!" he slapped Kouki's hand away

“from now on you are going to be the host club’s dog” he pointed to Kouki and Haruhi

“soo you want us to be your bitch” Kouki continued 

Tamaki made a sound like he was chocking on something

Kouki the felt a pair of hand holding his shoulders , a pair of twins now each standing beside him "we like you. can we keep him??” the two ginger head grins at him

"yeah... no" Kouki pushed them away

"what are you even doing here!!??" Tamaki demanded from Kouki

"Haru-chan here promised to meet me after school, but it looks like she got sidetracked "

"I'm sorry Kouki-senpai"

 “no worries “he shrugged. 

“Now back to the main topic ,why don’t I help??” he looks toward kyoya. he seems to be the man in charge 

" I don't see any reason to decline" just what is he writing on that death note of his

“no!! you don’t have to Kouki-senpai. It’s my fault i'll handle it” Haruhi said shaking her head and hands.

“but I want to” he smiled towards the girl “we commoners have to stick together don’t we “ A smirk plastered on his face ” besides it sounds like fun”. Whats the worse that could happen

Kouki turned to the hosts “so what kind of club is this??”.


"Man i didn't even knew that this school has a host club" Kouki and haruhi were walking back from their first errand. "it seems different from the usual host club i know... less alcohol and stuff" he got a smack form haruhi. "of course its different its still in school"

“you know you didn’t have to do this right” changing the topic.

“I know, but I want to. They seem like a fun bunch to be around” ruffling haruhi's hair.

“I cant believe they mistook you for a guy. hahahaha well i guess that outfit doesn't  help” . Haruhi gave him a blank look “I don’t really care actually.to me it doesn’t matter what gender I am, I’m still me” Kouki gave a hmm as a reply.

When we got back to the music room, I was actually surprised to see how many girls there were.“they are quite popular aren’t they” looking at the girls swooning over Tamaki. Ignoring the girls she handed Tamaki the bag of things we bought.

“wait a minute, what is this?” he asked looking questionably at the instant coffee in his hand

“it’s coffee” 

“I’ve never seen this brand before, is it the brand that's already ground?” Tamaki asked looking suspiciously at the box of coffee

“its instant coffee…??” Kouki questioned his sanity

Tamaki and the guest began making a fuss over the coffee,Kouki took a step back letting Haruhi handle the madness. well i'm not going to get involve in this

Tamaki asked or more like ordered Haruhi to make the ‘commoner’s’ coffee made a snicker come out of Kouki. "damn rich people" Haruhi cursing at him. ‘well what do you know, Haruhi does have an attitude albeit not much but still’ Kouki silently agreeing with her.

Kouki spotted a redhead glaring daggers at Haruhi,who was making coffee for Tamaki. He walked just near enough to be in an ear shot.

“oh, Tamaki. you don’t have to drink that just because he bought it. You’ll get a stomach ache from it.” someone sounds like a bitch

Haruhi who heard her glanced at her ‘ignore her’ Kouki mouthed at her. giving a nod she continued to attend to Tamaki

“you’re not going to join them miss??” Kouki said with his charming smile 

Instead of answering she just turned to me and gave me a glare and if looks could kill I would be 7 foot under by now. Damn shes harsh .he backed off, turning his focus to Tamaki who asked is a girl would drink it from his mouth now that’s just wrong and disgusting his face turned sour, no one would want that. Kouki  expecting Tamaki to be turned down, but was proven wrong when the girl said that she would drink it and all the girls begin to sequel excitedly. meh i've seen worse. Kouki walked away from the horrid scene.

he walked pass the twins table where the twins were doing they're brotherly act, making the girls scream.  how is incest even popular isn't it taboo or something

“what are they soo excited about” Kouki gave an involuntary jump “don’t scare me like that Haru-chan~” hands to his chest  “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to; I just don’t get what their so excited about” she said with a monotone voice. “people will like what they want Haru-chan” Kouki laugh at her grimaced face

"now come on Haru-chan let’s not keep the girls waiting" taking the try of coffee from her arms.


“sorry I’m late”  Honey just came in on Mori’s shoulder looking like he just woke up from a nap. fuck he’s adorable for a 3rd year honey rolls in the girls’ lap making them squeal and blush. Mori's not bad either 

“is he really a 3rd year student” Haruhi asks looking at them.

“honey-senpai may seem young and childish but he is a prodigy” Kyoya walked toward them

“I’m sure he is “the continued to observe the cute boy. That's the haninozuka heir alright            

“And then Mori-senpai allure is his silent and strong disposition” he explained.

ooohhh he’s coming

“Haru-chan!!~” he sang as he jumped on Haruhi and spun her around

“Haru-chan, Kou-chan wanna have some cake with me”

He called me Kou-chan!?? I LOVE IT!!!

“No, I don’t really like sweets… “said the dizzy Haruhi

 “maybe later Honey-senpai” i cant handle his cuteness right now

“then would you like to hold my bunny Usa-chan?!?” holding out Usa-chan

“I’m not really into bunnies” making him pout Damn haru-chan blunt much

“you’re saying you don’t like Usa-chan” 

Kouki's heart dropped looking at his dejected face i have to do something

“it’s sooo cute just like you honey-senpai” he said looking at the bunny while nudging haruhi

“well I guess it is kind of cute”

THE BUNNY IS BLUSHING!!!

 honey’s face looked like something lighted up oh he noticed ,this is going to be good

“take good care of him OK!!” he went off back to his table                                             

“our club’s policy is to utilize everyone’s individual characteristics to respond to the needs of our guests” kyoya explained fluently eyes still on honey.

“by the way Tamaki is our number one, AKA the king. His request rate is 70%".

Whoaaaaahhh “seriously him?!?!?” Kouki stared at Tamaki’s table where the girls are all focusing on whatever Tamaki is saying he is something 

“what has the world become”

“now in order to pay your 8 million debt you two will become the club’s dog until you graduate, oh I’m sorry our errand boys” he said with an evil smirk on his face and making Haruhi freeze up “you two can try to run away but just so you know my family owns a private police force of 100 officers , by the way do you two have a passport” Kouki sweat dropped. he lives up to the ootori name no doubt about it

“there there Haru-chan I’m here with you” Kouki pets her head comforting her. its not like i can go anywhere in the first place 

“you guys are going to have to try harder to pay of that debt my little nerds” Tamaki suddenly came and blew into Kouki's ear which made him shiver and jump away.

“please don’t do that Tamaki” he said holding Haruhi shielding her from Tamaki. what is wrong with him

“you both need a makeover or no girls are going to look twice at you”

“yeah well I’m not trying to get girls to look at me” Haruhi plainly said to Tamaki

“yeah same” I continued. I'm not into girls in the first place

“are you kidding me it’s the most important thing you have to learn to be a gentleman” he pulled out a rose out of nowhere. “to please the ladies like I do “he said with a wink

Fuck why am I blushing, noo stop Kouki slapped his face “I just don’t think it’s all that important” he said trying to hide his blush

“yeah, why should we care about appearances and label anyway. I mean what really matters is what on the inside right” she said staring straight at Tamaki “I don’t even understand why you need a place like this”

ooohhh my sweet Haruhi, if there were more people like you the world would definitely be a better place

“it’s a cruel reality isn’t it, its not often that god creates a perfect person like moi beautiful both inside and out” flowers blossoming around him out of nowhere. seriously where are the roses coming from

While Tamaki continued rambling about beauty Haruhi seems to be thinking about something

“what’s wrong Haru-chan??” Kouki bended to her height

“there’s a word that describes people like him but I can’t seem to think of anything”

“Arrogant??”

“no”

“selfish??”

“insane??”

“not quite”

“troublesome??”

“a pain in the neck??”

“no there’s something that fits him perfectly”

Hmmmmm Tamaki is…….

“oh, I know- “

obnoxious” they said together which sent Tamaki to go sulk in a corner.Wow that really got to him huh

The twins suddenly appeared one on either side calling them heroes.they really do look alike reminds me of Daiki and Taichi.

 they continued to watch tamaki, wait is he growing mushrooms there??

“I’m sorry senpai… your lesson did strike a small chord with me, I guess”

“well not me” Kouki smiled at the sulking grown ass man growing mushrooms in the corner of the room

Surprisingly the moping man slowly got up and…. spun around with a charismatic smile

“Haruhi run… Ill give you some time” Kouki whispered which went ignored

“really, it did? Let me teach you more! ~”

“boy he got over that quick”

“oww Haru-chan that hurts” looking at haruhi who jabbed his gut.

“boss” Hikaru said. 

“call me king” woah his ego is over the roof.

“you can teach them all the basics of hosting” 

“but they’re not going to get far with the ladies if he doesn’t look the part you know” Kaoru continued “they’re not exactly host club material but” he turned to Haruhi “maybe if we took of his glasses it would help” as he said that he pulled of Haruhi’s glasses revealing big brown beautiful eyes.

“wow Haruhi your eyes are soo beautiful” awed at her eyes

Then Tamaki snapped his fingers,” Hikaru! Kaoru!”

yes boss” the twin grabbed haruhi and Kouki towards the changing room. wait why am i included

The twins gave them clothes and began striping haruhi when they froze. Kouki pulled the frozen twins away from haruhi and threw them outside “wait outside!!”.

“now Haru-chan lets get change shall we.” he said walking to her

“but Kouki, you’re….” 

“ah no worries Haru-chan, you know I’m gay” not getting any reaction “yeah that doesn’t change anything does it… how about I change first and then i'll leave you here, sounds ok??” to which he earned a nod

 “If you need any help don’t be shy to ask Haru-chan~~” Haruhi pushed Kouki outside after he finished changing.

When I went out all the host were out there waiting for us. Tamaki instantly jumped on me and spun me around

“Tamaki put me dowwwwwnnn” I said my whole world spinning

“you look dashing!!” he putts me down and rubbed his cheek on mine

“wow Kouki you actually look good” said twin A

“what’s that suppose to mean!!” I snapped at him, cheek still against Tamaki making me look less of a threat. well i do look good in this. Kouki's hair licked back revealing his eyes, clothes fit just right in his lean and muscular body

“are you sure we can keep this Tamaki??” he pushed tamaki away and straighten up his outfit

“yeah senpai this seems expensive, are you sure we can keep this??” Haruhi came out.

“damn Haru-chan you look even better than me” Kouki pulled Tamaki who was hugging the light out of Haruhi away from her

“Haru-chan, Kou-chan you guys look soo cute~~”

“if we had known that’s how you really look”

“we would have helped you sooner”
“who knows maybe they’ll draw in some customers”

“that’s just what I was thinking” yeah right Tamaki, as if.

“our errand boys are moving up the ranks. Starting today you two are an official member of the host club” he points his finger to them 

“if you two each can get 100 customers to request your services then, we will completely forget about your 8 million yen debt”

“a host???” Haruhi said dejectedly. hosts huh, i thought i was finally leaving that behind

“c’mon Haru-chan it doesn’t sound that bad”  arms on haruhi's shoulder “besides with how we look we’ll be done in no time” well no harm in some fun once in a while

Chapter Text

“soo tell me Kouki you’re here with an art scholarship, aren’t you?”

“yeah, that means your drawing must be amazing”

“can you show us some Kouki??”

Its been awhile since I've done this,lets hope its goes well 

“well I wouldn’t say amazing, but yeah I’m pretty awesome at it” Kouki said giving a long mastered smile at the girls, looks like i still have it. kouki grinned inwardly looking at the blushing girls.

“ why did you join the host club Kouki?” asked one of the girls, hearing haruhi who is at the table beside them talking about her family.

‘oh, I know just the story. thanks, Haru-chan’ Kouki smiled at the girls

“well, because I didn’t want Haruhi to feel alone you know” Kouki glanced at Haruhi

“That's soo thoughtful of you Kouki”

“yeah he’s like a little brother to me so I have to be there for him” more like a sister

“do you have a little brother Kouki?”

“yeah I do. I have two mischievous pair of twins who are 10 and an adorable angle-like little sister who is 8”

“really?!!  Do you have a picture of them??”

“you guys wanna see” Kouki said with a grin

The girls all simultaneously nodded

Kouki got his phone out and showed them a few pictures. I love taking pictures of them they're just soo cute~~

“who is that” pointing at a man with shining silver hair holding up a pair of twins.

Shit. Kouki’s smile faltered a bit but goes unnoticed by his guests “he’s my big brother, I don’t like to talk about him much. We don’t have the best of relationships, he changed when our mother died. But he’s good with the brats, so I tolerate him” Kouki said with a sad smile I have to tolerate him

“we’re so sorry Kouki” the girls said tears in their eyes

Kouki begins to panic “no worries girls “he said giving them each a piece of tissue “c’mon now don’t cry, you wouldn’t want to smudge your make-up.” Kouki wiped a way a tear on a girl’s cheek that made all of them blush and squeal. His guests are now captivated by Kouki’s charm.

“umm, so Kouki?”

“is it ok if- “

“we request you again tomorrow?”

Kouki gave them a dazzling smile “it would be my honor if you do my princesses” stealing a glance a Haruhi he saw the girls asking the same thing. When Kouki caught Haruhi’s eyes he gave Haruhi a wink which was returned with a big smile. This just made the girls scream louder. we got this in the bag haru-chan.

From a table a few feet away were Tamaki and the twins just staring at Haruhi.” how are they soo popular?”

“they’re both naturals” kyoya responded pushing his glasses up

no training needed” the twins said crouched down behind a couch.

“have you forgotten about me”

Tamaki focused his attention back to his guests “nonsense princess, I’m just worried about our new hosts”

The redhead gave a dry laugh “well that’s obvious, Tamaki”

“well I am training them to be a gentleman like me. Their actions will reflect onto me as the president” Tamaki snapped his finger “Haruhi, Kouki come here for a minute please”

They both excused themselves, what does he want now and walked over to Tamaki.

“id like you to meet my regular guest, princess Ayanokoji” Tamaki gestured to the redhead sitting beside him.

oh, it’s the redhead with the attitude, well let’s just make this quick .with a glance towards Haruhi they both spoke up at once

it’s a pleasure to meet you, miss

Tamaki jumped on them, but Kouki somehow managed to doge just in time. Which leaves Haruhi. Haruhi struggled against his vice grip, attempting to get out of his hold but to no avail. Thank you for your sacrificial haru-chan your bravery will never be forgotten. Tamaki continued to squeezed the poor girl. Out of the side of eye she saw honey and mori sitting not to far way. “mori-senpai help!”

Kouki watched as Haruhi was lifted out of Tamaki’s arm and into the air. ooh he knows

“come on Haruhi, let daddy give you a big hug!”

“I’ve already got one, I don’t need another one.” She walked away from him leaving Tamaki and Kouki.

Tamaki then turned to Kouki and made grabby actions with his hand “come to daddy Kouki!”

A flash of fear appeared in Kouki’s eyes but it quickly disappears as fast as it came “no way in hell!” Kouki walked away from the pouting blond Its just tamaki.... just Tamaki


"huh what happened to my bag"

Haruhi stood next to a big window next to Kouki. When they looked outside, they saw Haruhi’s bag outside in the fountain. " I guess they’re bullies everywhere huh Haru-chan” Kouki turned to Haruhi. I bet that redhead bitch did this “no worries ill help you out” Haruhi gave him a small smile “thanks Kouki”

They both hurriedly went outside, once at the stairs they met a certain redhead .” oh you two again,I bet you two love having Tamaki giving you both that makeover and fawning all over you. It’s useless though. Both of you will always be a second-class citizen” she almost snarled at them.

“Haru-chan how about you go on first, i'll catch up to you later” Kouki said not looking at Haruhi. when she was about to protest “Go Haruhi” Kouki has never used her name before. Haruhi went down the stairs not saying a word and didn't look back.

“you know miss, for a princess you can be quite the bitch, and I’m not sure if Tamaki would like that if he were to know” Kouki stared directly at Ayanokoji . “you wouldn’t dare”. she snapped back

“Oh, I would. I don’t take lightly to people who bothers my friends. You better watch your back princess" making her face pale. "is that a threat?!!" kouki gave a sinister smile " oh i wouldn't call it a threat, more like a friendly reminder" with one last look Kouki made his way down the stairs. After a few steps Kouki was pushed from behind making him tumble down the stairs. Not expecting the push Kouki wasn’t able to brace himself Shit this is going to hurt

*THUD!*

“kou-chan!!”

Mori and honey who were walking back from the toilet  They both quickly came to help.

“fuck. I didn’t think she would do this” Kouki mumbled to himself “thanks honey-senpai, mori-senpai” he tried to get up but flinched damn i twisted my ankle "can you help me up mori-senpai??the stoic male silently pulled him up.

What happened!? Who did this!? Did someone push you!??” the once cute and lovely honey was gone and was switched with a dark and scary one. Kouki was actually scared when he looked at honey, who looked like he was a predator ready to maim its prey.

“it’s nothing honey-senpai, I just tripped” Kouki said with a small smile trying to calm down his senpai.

“but kou-chan yo-! “

“Mitsukuni” said the tall stoic man instantly calming honey

“I’m totally fine senpai. Its just a little fall, but i seem to have twisted my ankle a bit" the small senpai teared up. “you have to be careful kou-chan!!” said the crying boy tears running down his face

“I will senpai” patting his head“thanks Mori-senpai” looking up at the male whose holding him up.

“we need to get you to kyo-chan” honey said back to his cute adorable self “Takashi!” and with that Kouki was swept off his feet and carried bride style by the tall man with honey on the shoulders.

“mori-senpai put me down!!” Kouki said. A blush creeping on his face. He tried to resist but was stopped when mori stared down at him, his eyes held a hint of concern that made Kouki still in his senpai’s arms.

When they arrived at the music room mori kicked the door opened making the three occupants in the rooms jump.

“kyo-chan” yelled honey who jumped off mori’s shoulder and quickly ran off to find the Ootori.

“oh my, what happened”Kyoya closed his laptop and made his way to the trio


After Kouki had been looked at, then came the questions.

what happened??” asked the twins

“I fell down the stairs” Kouki said looking at his bandaged leg. I sure hope this heals fast.

“well thankfully you got off with only a sprained ankle and nothing else” kyoya said, closing the medical kit

“he was pus- “

“Where is Tamaki??” Kouki asked cutting honey off


“Aaahh that’s not gonna end well” Kouki said watching Ayanokoji and Haruhi sitting at the same table. “what was that kou-chan??” asked honey who is eating cake In front of him “nothing honey-senpai” Kouki said smiling at the small blond.

“Kou-chan would- “

“AAAHH!!! NO HARUHI LEAVE ME ALONE!! SOMEONE HELP ME HARUHI JUST ATTACKED ME!!”

All attention was at Haruhi’s table that was now turned over with Haruhi laying on top of Ayanokoji.

“SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING, TEACH THIS COMMONER A LESSON!!”

Kouki got up and was about to go there but was stopped by a hand on his shoulder. Making him unable to move.

“Mori-senpai??”

*SPLASH!*

Kouki could only watch as Haruhi and Ayanokoji was drenched in water by the twins.

As Tamaki lifted the redhead to her feet Ayanokoji began crying at Tamaki.

“do something Tamaki, Haruhi just assaulted me. Get rid of him!!” Tamaki merely stroked her hair "I’m disappointed in you princess. You were the one who threw his bag into the pond, didn’t you? But that wasn’t enough, you even pushed Kouki down the stairs injuring him!.”

Ayanokoji’s eyes grew wide “you don’t know that. Do you have any proof that I did?! How could you even say that?!!?”     

“you know you’re a beautiful girl but you aren’t classy enough to be our guest. No guest of ours would harm another person and if there’s one thing I know, Haruhi is not that kind of man”

wha-what??how??.... Kouki glanced at kyoya who gave him a knowing smirk. Dammit kyoya.

“but why,tamaki?You Idiot!” Ayanokoji cried and ran out of the room.

After all is said and done. Haruhi went to change her clothes.


“haruhi?... you're a girl”

“biologically speaking, yeah” haruhi came out of the dressing room wearing ouran’s infamous yellow dress

to say the least TAMAKI.FREAKED.OUT

“Listen senpai, I don’t really care if people see me as a boy or a girl. In my opinion its more important for a person to be recognized for who they are rather than for what sex they are” she stated

Which freaked him out MORE.

“nice one haru-chan” kouki said giving her a thumbs up.

“I have to say senpai you were pretty cool earlier” haruhi complimented tamaki who currently has a massive blush on his face and sounded like he was having a seizure.

“now I could be wrong ,but I think we may be witnessing the beginnings of love here” kyoya commented.

“you know I will just call everyone dude and bro now” witch earned a laugh from kouki

“That’s my haru-chan !”

*DING DING*

Haruhi quickly walked towards the club room" They are going to hound me if I late" someone ran pass him "c'mon Haruhi we're late!!" Kouki yelled not looking back "I'm coming!"

"you should exercise more haru-chan" Kouki said to the panting girl beside him. "shut up senpai" After catching her breath she opened the door.

"where...is this" 

"Uwaahhh they really went all out on this" 

The music room turned into a tropical forest. With big trees, small tress and wild animals. the perks of being rich, I guess.

"Haruhi, Kouki senpai you're late~~" All the host were wearing little to no clothes. Fuck this is not good for my heart.

"According to my calendar it's still early April" Ignoring the Toucan on her head

"Huddling under a kotatsu table, fearing the cold would be nonsense! why else would we have this perfect cooling and heating system" Kouki decided to just tune out the rest of Tamaki's rambling.

"Ne kyoya how you get all these animals here" He turned to kyoya 
"with money anything is possible" He answer firmly 

*The Host Club Is Now Open*

"The guests seem more riled up than usual" Haruhi said looking at the twins table.

" A little moderate exposure is popular" Kyoya replied while writing god knows what on his note book 

"Yeah... define moderate" Kouki sighed wearing his own costume prepared by the twins.  The costume was only a skirt like saroong leaving his upper body bare. It' a good thing the old man wasn't home yesterday.

"I assume this was your idea Kyoya??"

"the club's policies are all laid out by Tamaki, But I did find the opportunity to slip a Bali brochure on his desk" He smiled innocently. This was definitely your idea 


"Kyaa!! Kouki-Kun, you look amazing in that outfit" the girls were going crazy looking at Kouki

"Thanks girls, but it was a bit of a hassle to put on" He put his finger on one of the girls chin "it would have been a lot easier if you were to help me wouldn't it my princess" he put his finger down only to grab her hand "That is, if you won't mind helping me"

"KYAA!!!! WE WOULD LOVE TO KOUKI-KUN!!!!" the girls all had hearts in their eyes, some even had a little nose bleed.

"Are you going to the party kouki-kun??"  Party??? never mind i'll ask kyoya later, let's just go along with it.

"I wouldn't miss it for the world" he gave his signature princely smile.

*After club ends*

The hosts were all gathered around a table except for tamaki, who is sulking in his corner eating 'commoners' ramen as Hikaru calls it.

"why is he soo upset anyways?" Kouki asked 

"He shouldn't be surprise, she's had that illness for a while now, hasn't she? Kyoya said typing away on his laptop.

Illness??

"she's sick?" haruhi asked, worried for the young customer.

"The host-hoping-disease" Hikaru started

"AKA never the same host twice" Kaoru finished

Aahhh that makes more sense "So Tamaki is upset because Haruhi is her new favorite" Kouki stated, side eyeing tamaki. "he's ridiculous"

"Shut Up!" He got up and yelled at us "That's not the reason!!"

"I'm at my limit Haruhi! You have to start dressing like a girl!" He began passing 

"Huuh??" Here he goes again.

"I dont get why you're soo popular with the girls when you yourself are one!!" It looked as if he was having a mental breakdown of sorts.

"you just answered your own question dumbass " Kouki deadpanned

"we are the only ones who knows the truth!!"He screamed at the hosts, mainly haruhi.

"Yeah, she opted out of gym class" Hikaru stated

"And the attendance numbers are all mixed up so no one can tell" Kaoru added

Suddenly Tamaki dragged out a chest out of nowhere, and dug through some stuff only to take out a big frame "Daddy... daddy... daddy wants you to go back to the way you were" Woah that's a large picture...where did he even get that..

"dont go pulling out my picture without asking first!!" Haruhi furiously yelled at Tamaki.

"Damn you really cut a lot off huh Haru-chan" Kouki said looking at the picture of Haruhi with long hair

"the more i look at this picture ,the more amazed i am... how did you turn out like that" Hikaru said referring her look one the first day they met.

"Before school started some kid in my neighborhood got gum stuck in my hair, and it was a pain to get out so i just decided to cut it all off.I dont care if i look like a dude you know."She explained

"You didn't have to cut it that short you know" Then, i'm sure things would have been much more different 

"Girls should not refer to themselves as a dude!!" Yelled Tamaki

"Mommy! Haruhi's using those dirty words again!!" He cried to 'Mommy'

"I'm sorry ... Mommy??" I'm pretty sure he's not referring to me .Kouki gave a questioning look to the other hosts.

"Who exactly is mommy..??"Kaoru asked 

"Based on the club position, i'm assuming its me" Kyoya said not looking the littlest bit annoyed.

"Mommy huh" Kouki teased only to get an icy stared from the said mommy.

"Look i dont get what the fuss is about.I can pay of my debt more easily as a host rather than an errand boy" She stated.

"By the way, do you have any experience in formal dancing, Haruhi, Kouki?" Hikaru asked changing the subject. Formal dancing???

"Well i do, i'm not sure about haruhi though" .

"Umm no, but the party doesn't have anything to do with our quota right..."

"A refined gentleman must know how to dance. if you want to live the life of a host that badly, you have to show us how far you're willing to go" Tamaki said, suddenly stopped crying. "I order you to master the waltz in one week, and demonstrate it to us at next week's party.If you fail then i will demote you back to errand boy!"

Its a good thing I already learnt it years ago...

Chapter Text

 

"Nee Kouki-kun, do you know how to dance in a formal party??" Miyako , a hostess in the Bunny Hole asked. 

They are 5 people in the changing room including Kouki. Bunny Hole was closing for the day and all the workers are getting ready to go home.

"huh WHY?"Kouki asked sitting on one of the chairs waiting for Miyako to finish. Kouki was used to this routine having done it for almost two years. It was really embarrassing at first but the women are all like family to him by now.

"The event for next week requires you to dance, so if you don't know how one of us are going to have to teach you how" Kirimi, another hostess hugged him from the back making him lean back unconsciously.

Kouki gave a shocked face "But i thought i could be excluded from that,I don't think the customers would want to dance with me anyways" 

"Ohh but that's where you're wrong, you see both men and women customers were excited when we said that you would be joining the party"Miyako stated, a large smile on her face.

"soo we have to make sure you know how to lead and follow, so you can dance with both genders" Kirimi added laughing softly.

Kouki could only sigh "Fine.."


"I cant believe you know how to dance" Hikaru said arms on his brother's shoulder

"yeah its not normal for a commoner to know how to dance" Kaoru added.

"No offence" 

"yeah none taken" Kouki answer not blinking at the obvious insult.

"I had to learn how to for my job" if you could count that as a job.

"Anyways, what is wrong with him now" Kouki said referring to Tamaki who is sulking in the window corner.

"Yeah, why so gloomy boss"

" I bet he wanted to be the one to teach haruhi how to dance" Hikaru said

"I think you're right Hikaru, but he's way too tall to stand in as a women"Added Kaoru


"My little lambs who have gathered here tonight,Ouran host club bids you a fond welcome to this party" Tamaki announce, ending it with a very formal bow. Thank god they told me a week in advance...it was a pain getting that bastard to babysit. Kouki thought, looking somberly at the audience of girls in the hall.   

Kyoya cleared his throat, and addressed the audience."We invite you to enjoy yourselves to your hearts content, as you dance with the host club members. Based on your dancing skills, one lucky young lady will be chosen as tonight's queen.The reward will be a passionate kiss on the cheek from our king"

"Good luck mu darlings~~" making the girls go wild.

Beside kouki stood Haruhi, who looked like she wanted to be anywhere but here.

"C'mon haruhi liven up" Kouki pats her shoulder 

"Yeah, your enthusiasm is too low"  The twins said

Haruhi sighed, shrugging off kouki's hand "I'm just not used too this, I've only been to the festivals nearby"

"You probably cant call that a dance party" Kyoya added 

"I don't understand how you look used to this kouki-senpai" haruhi asked turning to kouki.

"aaahhh... well I had a job that often hosts parties like this" He answered fidgeting a little obviously unconformable, which got a few eyebrows rose.But before anyone could speak up "This looks like fun! I'm sure they have plenty of Delicious foods to try" Hoping haruhi would take the bait.

"You guys have food??" She asked eyes widening oblivious to the small tension in the air 

"Yes, we have quite the spread" Kyoya stated giving kouki a look that clearly says 'This is not over'

Kouki just ignored the look. Damn , now he's gonna do what he does best. knowing anything and everything about everyone...fuck i hope he wont say anything to the others. 

"with fancy tuna??"Haruhi spoke up

All heads now turn to her. They all begun smothering her with pity, making her annoyed.

"Awwhhh looks like haru-chan here likes some fancy tuna" Kouki said joining the guys. AKA Tamaki,and the twins. Thank god for Haru-chan 

"Get some fancy tuna here now" Ordered Tamaki to kyoya who is already on his phone.

"Add some deluxe sushi as well"Kyoya added

"How about some alcohol"Kouki interjected to which he was ignored. Its been a while since i had a drink...siiighhh

after an hour of dancing and entertaining girls, kouki stood alone at the food table munching on some food. Damn.... these are soo gooodddd~~.it would have been perfect with some alcohol

"I reaally need a drink right now" kouki grumbled to himself 

"The club does not promote underage drinking kouki-kun" Kyoya appeared out of nowhere scaring the shit out of kouki.

"ARRRGGHHH!!!! HOLY SHIT KYOYA WE NEED TO PUT A BELL ON YOU!" he screamed at kyoya "I don't recommend you to try that, who knows what will happen" Kyoya gave his signature smirk to kouki

"And as i said earlier, we do not condone underage drinking, it is both illegal and unhealthy in not controlled" A serious look on his face 

"A few drinks wont kill anyone now , will it" Kouki answered back   "It looks like the plan's in motion kyoya, we should go help" He continued walking toward where the twins are taking haruhi.

Kyoya made an unidentifiable look as he watch Kouki walk away. There's something about him... something about him that irks me for some reason, and it kills me not knowing what that is. Jaw clenched he slowly followed behind Kouki

"I don't understand why you have to be so pushy" Haruhi exclaimed to the twins who pushed her behind the curtains.

"just change!!" 

"Let me help you with your makeup Haru-chan" Kouki made her sit in front of a big mirror skillfully applying makeup on her.

"Haru-chan you look cute"Honey complimented her.

"You're good at this kouki-senpai" Hikaru stated looking at his masterpiece 

"Yeah, i didn't know you knew how too do makeup" says Kaoru. The twins gave him an amazed look 

"I've had some practice" He shrugged. more like forced to learned he shivered at the memory.

"My face feels heavy, and its hard to walk in these shoes" The brunette grumbled, walking like a robot in her heels, clearly uncomfortable.

"Oh you'll be fine~" Kouki fixing her hair a bit 

"Good luck in there"

 "She's soo pretty..." Tamaki mumbled a blush on his face


"Tonight's dance queen.." " is hereby declared to be princess kasugazaki kanako." 

huuuuhh what's with the banana peel...

"Now the blessed kiss from the king.." "Has been switched to Fujioka Haruhi!"

whaa.. its gone..??

"HEY!!"
"WHAT?!?!?!!?"

"There's no way ill kiss her" She said

"We'll cut your debt by one third" 

"c'mon haru-chan its only on the cheek" Kouki persuaded haruhi

".....fine i'll do it" She grumbled walking down the staircase toward kanako. The twins had to physically hold Tamaki back.

A little accident huh. kouki side glance Kyoya is looking as demonic as usual.

"You don't think this is haru-chan's first kiss, do you??" Honey asked oblivious of the commotion he would get from Tamaki 

"WHAATTT!!!??" Tamaki ran as fast as he could trying to stop haruhi, but unfortunately he slipped on a banana peel and instead pushed haruhi making a peck on the cheek become a full kiss on the lips.

"Relax tamaki it wasn't that bad, i've had worse" Kouki said trying to console the dying king

"What do you mean by worse" Kaoru asked ignoring Tamaki.

"Well.... let's just say he was lucky that he only got a broken nose" He answered meekly 

"Wha-"

"I'm going to get something to eat" Kouki walked away, ignoring the stares on his back. Fuck I thought i was over this. Kouki clenched his trembling hands I Should have broken more that his nose... Fucking bastard.


 "I'm home~~"Kouki opened the front door only to be greeted with silence. huuh i guess they're all asleep. Kouki took off his shoes and went inside. I should dry clean this before returning them...i'll do it  tomorrow. He thought as he hung up the suit the twins lent to him for the party.

"You're back" came a voice from the stairs. A silver haired man walked down the stairs.

Kouki face froze. Shit i forgot he's home. "ObviouslyHe said not giving as much as a glance toward the man. He walked toward the kitchen and opened the fridge to take out a can of beer.

"You know you're still underage"The silver head now in the kitchen, just a few feet from kouki.

"Yeah?? like that has ever stopped you before" As kouki was about to walk away, he was grabbed by the shoulder and spun around so he directly stood in front of the man.

"NO"  He stole the can right from kouki's grip.

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO?!?!" a scowl on his face, clearly angry.

"I said no" He answered back finishing the beer in a few mouthfuls.

"What the fuck Hiromi?!!? SINCE WHEN DID YOU CARE??" Wide eyes, clenched teeth ,as if he was ready to attack

"That doesn't matter" Hiromi said unfazed by his little brother "Besides, you owe me"

"Tch! I only have to cook whatever you want for a week." Eyes still feral he walked away but stopped a few steps on the stairs. "I actually thought you would have asked something unreasonable like always, but i guess you proved me wrong. Massage me what you want me to cook and i'll leave it on the table. So don't talk to me, don't bother me, and most importantly don't start caring about me. You're 5 years too late for that." Voice full of resentment, he stalked up the stairs straight to his room.

"Fuck... I didn't mean to make him mad" Hiromi Whispered in the now empty kitchen. Lowered head hiding his face.

"I'm going to fix this... I'm going to fix us, I promise..." Unshed tears filled his eyes. "I have to..." the can of beer crushed in his hands.

Chapter Text

"Nee Kouki-kun,do you like flowers?" Kouki sat under a sakura tree with his customers.

"Yeah, i do like them. when my mom was alive we would go Hanami every year. She loved sakura you see, so seeing the flowers reminds me of her." kouki replies catching a sakura petal on his palm

"But being here with you princesses is nice, your beauty stands out more in the natural light" He smiles touching one girl on the hands, making them blush.

"Tha- Thank you kouki-kun" 

After his customers left

kouki wandered in the garden alone.the sakura sure is beautiful... its been a while since i enjoyed them. watching the other hosts. you would have like them mom, you would have taken them in right away... even kyoya kouki smiled at a big sakura tree, but his smile faltered I wonder what you would think about our family right now. Kouki continued to observe the stunning view.

*CRASH*

"AHH!! Kaoru!" Hot tea spilled on kaoru's finger. kouki quickly came over 

"Just kissing it won't make it better you know" kouki took examined Kaoru's hand. "thankfully its just a small burn, it wont even leave a mark" He ruffled the twins head " you guys should be more careful, wont want to ruin your charm now would you" 

"Tha-thanks kouki-senpai" the twins said a small blush on their face.

"Don't look way, this is a rare scene" the girls fawning over the three.

"You are absolutely right, miss" Kyoya suddenly appeared."Beauty is fleeting, so I created this book, containing photo collections. I've prepared similar books for every host, if you were to purchase them all together,there is a special set price." He explained holding books with each host on the cover 

"I'll buy them!!" girls began to gather around kyoya wanting to buy the book.

"So this is how the club makes money" The twins said

"But now I'm curious" "How and when did he take did pictures" The twins questioned. which was promptly ignored.


"Say Haruhi, have you decided on your elective courses for this term" The twins appeared holding onto haruhi.

"How about conversational French" "Yeah, we should take it together"

"Because, we are in the same class" Giving a sly look to tamaki, who froze like a rock.

"Say mommy" tamaki who was sulking under a tree uttered 

"What is it, Daddy?" kyoya replied playing along with the husband and wife play

"This is just my hypothesis- yes just a hypothesis,but by being in the same class, Hikaru and Kaoru are able to spend more time with haruhi than I do. What's worse is that they are able to get much closer to her"

"You just realized this tamaki??" Kouki said from the sideline where he was observing the highly amusing scene.

"Kouki-kun is right" Kyoya pulled out a board "Those three spend roughly nine hours of school time together,but the contact between you and haruhi in limited to the two hours of club time." He explained 

"Which means, your involvement in haruhi's life is a mere 3%" Kouki continued, and snickered when tamaki had a breakdown. He really is easy to rile up. he laughs to himself

"Haruhi! You must not hang around with those disreputable twins any further"

"Now that's just harsh Tamaki" They're not that bad, just need some getting used to. after that they're tolerable at least

"Disreputable you say?!" "You are the last one we want to have to call us, Tono!"

"Yes... I know!!. Haruhi! Daddy wants you to go back to being a girl!!" large tears streaming down his face "You have to be surrounded by girls your age, and living a wholesome live as a student."He finished his rant

"Who are you calling daddy" Haruhi retorted

Tamaki began shaking haruhi "Go Back! Turn back! Go Back Right Now!!"

"Tamaki Don't shake the poor girl she's gonna faint!!" Kouki tried to stop the hysterical king, but to no avail Tamaki just kept shaking her.

"You don't have to rush things. She'll be found out soon anyways" "Remember? we have physical exams the day after tomorrow" The twins revealed 

"Physical.... exams??"  SHIT! IN TWO DAYS?!

Everyone including Kouki froze except haruhi.

"Now that you mention it, it is the day after tomorrow"


physical exam huh... fuck. Kouki made his way to the club room after finishing his art class. This is all the bastard's fault Jaw tightly closed he had a scowl on his face. Kouki touched his still tender side. the damn bruise still isn't fucking gone.How the hell am I suppose to explain it!?!

A few days ago, Kouki's father came home after two weeks.while It was not unusual for him to not come home for weeks at a time, the problem was every time he did come home he would be drunk AF and he was not the shy drunk, no absolutely not. He was the type to get mad at anything and everything, and so that happened and Kouki got the brunt of it. Long story short, he ended up getting an ugly bruise on his side, that has yet shown any signs of healing.

well worse comes to worst ill just say I got into a fight or something, wouldn't be the first time. sighing he opened the doors to the club room.


"Tama-chan seems to be enjoying himself huh~" honey commented looking at tamaki who's daydreaming 

"He looks rather miserable to me...." Hikaru said which broke tamaki  out of his daydream. "Don't be so cynical Hikaru. Everything is going according to plan.I could see how this would turn out from the start."

Tamaki began to glow and sparkle "Indeed! this anime has always been a school love comedy.Haruhi and I are clearly the main components of it"

"Then what are we?"

"You are the homosexual supporting cast of course"Tamaki proceed to draw a line on the floor "So make sure you don't pass this line"

"I'm kind of annoyed by this"

"Well I am homosexual, but I don't know about the rest" Kouki said, but was ignored.

"You don't understand do you,Tono?"

"If people find out that haru-chan is a girl, the she can't be in the club anymore" Honey revealed making tamaki pale and turn ghostly white. 

"But of Haru-chan wears girl's clothes, she'd look even more cute won't she, right kou-chan?~"

"She sure will, honey-senpai" Now i'm starting to think they're just trying to rile tamaki up He sweat drops internally.

"She did dress up like as a normal girl in middle school, so she must be pretty popular with the boys,right"

"yeah. According to my research, someone would declare their love to her about once a month" Kyoya revealed 

"What kind of research exactly??" Kouki asked kyoya "That's irrelevant,for now" He shrugged him off. What does he mean for now?!?!!

"Aaahhh, then tono wouldn't even be able to get near her, huh"

"Well we're in the same class so ,we'd be fine"

"So it won't bother you if she starts to hang out with other boys??" Kouki teased, already knowing their answer. But at that exact moment Haruhi decided to finally arrive. Damn Haru-chan your timing.

"Sorry i'm late" Haruhi said, oblivious of the mess Tamaki she made.

The tamaki grabbed her by her shoulders and started saying how they are going to help her conceal her secret and that she can just stay being their secret princess. Only getting a confused "yes" from the poor girl.

"It's true, we'd be a little annoyed if haruhi get surrounded by other guys" " then it's settled!"

Then a whiteboard suddenly appeared, a plan was already drawn on it. What's with this club and things suddenly appearing?? one more mystery added to the already long list.

"AHH that's it, if i'm found out then i won't be able to continue as a host and repay my debt, huh." Aaaaahhh haru-chan sweet oblivious haru-chan

"You know for an honor student you can be pretty slow haru-chan" Kouki said putting his hand on her head.

"Excuse me??" she said lightly slapping his hand off. "I still have a balance of 5,333,332 yen. I just have to find out another way huh" She continued , laughing to herself.

By now they were all appalled by her statement. "Commander! the subject doesn't have any initiative for this!" "Grr... what an uncooperative heroine!"

"Is that how much you hate hosting? How much you hate this club?" Tamaki accused pointing his finger at Haruhi.

"Well if i have to say... then yes, I do" She answered.

"Ahhh come on now haru-chan. Don't be like that, we all know you like us" Kouki tried to reason 

"I tolerate you" came the reply. making Tamaki who was sulking sulk even harder, if that was even possible. Tolerate huh...

"Well if it gets out that i'm a girl, then there's nothing we can do" She tried to play it off lightly.

"What kind of motivation she has"

"we have to fix her lack of determination first" Hikaru said and everyone began to think of a solution.

"Fancy Tuna" Mori whispered

"What's that mori-senpai??" Kouki looked up at the Giant 

"Fancy Tuna" He said more loudly making Haruhi frozen on spot. Oooh so that's how to get her Kouki gave a smirk towards haruhi.

"That's right,during the last chapter's dance party, you didn't get to eat any, right??" Tamaki said face turning like a serial killer's

"Did you hear, she's never eaten fancy tuna before" "What a bleak upbringing she's had" The twins gossiped like middle aged mistress. 

"If only you stayed in the club, then you can eat delicious things from here on out" Honey said looking at Usa-chan.

"W-What are you talking about. just because i'm poor, i'm not such a glutton that i'd go on fooling everyone , just so i can eat some Fancy Tuna..." Haruhi began to question her life's choices.

"....Will I really be able to eat it??"

Making them pleased by the outcome "That's the spirit haru-chan!" Kouki said a huge grin on his face.


* At the end of the club session *

Kouki was packing up his stuff when Mori with Honey on his shoulders approached him. By then the others had already left. 

"What's wrong honey-senpai? Mori-senpai?" Kouki said looking up at the two.

"Are you okay kou-chan..??" Honey asked, concern clear in his voice.

"What do you mean Honey-senpai?" kouki calmly answered back, but on the inside he was panicking shitshitshit.didhenotice.fucknoo.thiscantbefreakinghappening.eyebcuycbowxowueixuwxwgecihicwecuoi

"You just seemed kinda off today, right Takashi" In which Mori gave a small grunt of agreement.

Kouki scratched the back of his head "its nothing... i'm just nervous about the physical exams tomorrow" He looked down to his feet.

Honey jumped off Mori's shoulder and held both of kouki's hand is his small ones. "Don't worry kou-chan! The doctors are all nice!" Kouki looked up from his feet to stare at his senpai's face. 

"b-but..."

"There's nothing to be scared of, if anything happens you have me and Takashi! Plus the whole host club to back you up! Soo don't worry okay kou-chan" Honey beamed at him and Mori just gave him a  soft pat on his head.

By now his face was red with embarrassment and 'other' emotions. "tha-thanks, Honey-senpai Mori-senpai" his eyes once again at his feet. fuck... I didn't expect this.

"No problem!!"

Chapter Text

An announcement sounded throughout Ouran telling the students that the physicals exams will take place shortly, and to go to the designated place.

"So, what do you do in a physicals exam??" Kouki questioned walking with kyoya and tamaki towards the clinic.

"It's only a formality, because most of the students at the academy have their own private doctors at home. But since you don't have that, the doctors will conduct a proper one for you and haruhi.". Kyoya explained more as they walked.

"They have to take blood samples?!?!" 

"Why yes, you're not afraid of a little needle now are you??"  Kyoya teased Kouki as he opens the door to the clinic. "Hahaha very funny" 

Kouki then spotted honey and mori "Ummm what are those two doing...??"

"Those two are here to deal with things, in case something happens" Then kyoya proceeded to explain to Haruhi the same thing he told Kouki. Haruhi then was ushered away by the nurse.

while Kouki was still taking in the surrounding, someone bumped into him. "I'm terribly sorry" Huh he doesn't look very doctor-like "It's fine" and then the weird doctor went away.

"Huh" 

"What's wrong??" Kouki turned to kyoya.  "Nothing"

"KYAAA!!"

 "Why do they have to be so flashy all the time" his face in his hands, hiding his blush.

"The physical exams are really popular with the girls" Kyoya stated ,looking at the squealing girls fawning over the twins. "Yeah I can see why" 

"But it looks like it's not just the girls that are affected " Kyoya said, smirking at Kouki.

"OH shut up will you" Kouki slapped his shoulders.

wait why are they heading this way?? NOO!!!!

"Hey Kouki-senpai" "Can you help us with the exam"  The twins still half naked,each stood next to kouki hands on his shoulders. Making Kouki's face even redder 

fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck ok Kouki you can do this! Think happy thoughts! Happy thoughts!!

He took a big breath and replied "I'm sure the nurses would be more than happy to help" and before they could reply anything Kouki hurriedly went behind mori.

"Awwwhhh you're no fun senpai"

"SHUT UP!!!" He shouted from behind mori.

"Nee Kou-chan, why is your face soo red?? Are you sick?" Honey asked staring up at him concerned.

Mori turned to face the blushing boy and bend down to his height to look directly in his face. Mori pun his palm on kouki's forehead " No fever" Making said boy blush even more if that was possible.

"no-...i'm-...don't-...why-..." The boy fell on his knees, hiding his face from view 

"KOU-Chan!!?" honey fussing over his junior, where a weird noise was coming from. 

"He's fine honey senpai. He's just having a mini mental breakdown" Kyoya explained.

"Ohhh kinda like tama-chan huh" He said 

"Speaking of , here he comes right now"

 

"Yes, I am Haruhi Fujioka"

 

"........"

"Pffft... HAHAHHAHAAHAHAHHAHHAHHHHAHAHA" 

"Huh isn't that Tamaki-Sama"

"Is this Haruhi-Kun cosplay??"

"What is he trying to do??"

 

"I can't believe he actually did it" Hikaru said through his laughter

"hahahaha I told you they'll see through it" Kaoru said tears in his eyes.


"haruhi, I've prepared a special boy's clinic for you. The doctor already knows your situation and is sworn to secrecy" Kyoya said a sly smirk on his face. Kouki gave him a stare that said 'really bro'

"It turns out the doctors here all work for kyoya's family"  Hikaru said

"It would have been easier if you told us that earlier senpai" kaoru continued

"Where's the fun in that. I had to have my revenge somehow." He replied with a playful smile.

"You scare me sometimes kyoya" Kouki said.

Haruhi was sent to the boys clinic , while the other hosts stayed behind.

"I'm telling the truth!!" A girl sobbed, which got the hosts attention. 

what's going on...

"One of the doctors grabbed me by the shoulders, he was trying to get a pass at me!! I've never been so scared in my life!" she cried to the girls surrounding her.

Doctor??... ahhh must be him 

"I had a feeling this might happen" Kyoya said confirming Kouki's suspicion.

"What do you mean Kyo-chan??" Honey asked

"Earlier a weird man bumped into kouki I thought he was suspicious" He revealed

"You should have said so earlier"

"Well the security guard will take care of him"

 

"He went toward the boy's clinic"

.

.

.

"HARUHI!"

while the hosts hurried to haruhi Kouki stayed because the nurse had called him to his check-up.


"so Mr.Yoshihiro do you have any illness that runs in your family?" The doctor asked after the nurse finished taking a blood sample.

"Except from Asthma, and minor eczema i don't think so" Kouki fidgeted i his seat Fuck how long is this gonna take 

"Do you smoke??"  Fuck

"yes... sometimes"

"How about alcohol?"

"A little"

"Are you sexually active?"  What kind of question is that??!

"Not anymore"

"I see"  What do you mean 'you see'!!

"Aside from the bruise on your side, do you have any other wounds?"

"No"

The doctor didn't look at him at all during all this, nor did he question where the bruised came from he just wrote it down on his paper.

"How long is-"

"It says here your mother died from a disease inherited from her father" 

Kouki froze.

"So?" cold eyes directed at the doctor 

Unfazed the doctor replied "have you and the rest of your siblings been tested for it?"

"Why would-"

"I'll take that as a no then" The doctor then wrote down some things.
Kouki was speechless, it took a few seconds for it to sink in. 

This can't be happening...He paled 

"I'm her only biological child... the rest were adopted" He whispered,looking down on his lap, but the doctor heard him.

"That makes things easier for us then, i'll run some tests using the blood we drew. It'll take a couple of days. When we get the results, we will contact your caretaker" He said, voice void of any emotions.

"No! don't. Just call me directly." Kouki said Father can't know about this.

"Ok then. That is all, you may go" 

Kouki immediately stood up and walked out, not saying another word to the doctor. He ran across the hallway not caring about people watching.

As he ran who knows where, memories of his mother flashed in his head
.
.
.
A woman sat in bed in a white room looking out the window,a longing look in her beautiful eyes. Pale face and skinny body. Her skeleton like fingers playing with a ring around her neck, that doesn't fit her finger anymore. "mom what are you thinking about..?" Asked a 12-year-old kouki, who sat at the end of the bed.

The woman smiled at him "Nothing... I just miss spending time with my family. You look just like my son" Kouki flinched. "I- I do??" he asked slowly " Yes, he's turning 12 this year. I haven't seen him in a while, but i'm sure he's fine. That kid , his a fighter, he's strong, brave, and dependable. I feel sorry that he has to grow up too fast because of me." The woman puts her frail hand on kouki's small ones " He's the best son a mother could have, and I hope he knows that" Tears start to form in his eyes. "I'm sure he knows that" He smiled to the woman "Thank you , What's your name little boy??"

"LET ME GO!!! NOO! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO! LET ME GO!"  A woman trashed around in her bed fighting the nurses and doctors who are trying to calm her down. 
"I WANT TO GO HOME!! PLEASE LET ME GO!"Tears on her face she continued to fight, until a doctor was able to inject her with something that slowly calmed her down. As She began to calm down, she saw a little boy at the door. The little boy's face was full of fear, but he didn't cry, he can't. As the woman slowly closes her eyes she managed to say a few words " I just want to be with my family..."

IPROMISEDIPROMISEDHERIPROMISEDHERIPROMISED

As Kouki continued to run,tears fall from his eyes. tear of frustration, tears of sadness, and tears of fear. 
After years of not crying, it was finally too much to handle. 

He broke.

Kouki just cried and cried for what seemed like hours. but was only a couple of minutes,before he calmed down.

As he stopped crying,he realized he ran outside. He was sitting on the grass near a big tree.

"Fuck... what am I gonna do" He stood up and walked up to the tree. 

"I can't die... who's gonna take care of them. I promised mom I would." He sacrificed everything for them

"FUCK!!!!" He punched the tree as hard as he could. 

He crouched down, face on his knees. 

"What's gonna happen to them...." what going to happen to me


"Kou-chan?" 

Honey and Mori who stood at a big window saw the whole ordeal. They both had unidentifiable look in their eyes as they watched their kouhai in pain.

"What happened to him??" He looked to his cousin, who didn't give any reply.

"Kyoya" came a silent reply 

"you're right takashi! kyo-chan must know something." He said determination in his eyes

"Hmm" 

They both left the window in search for a certain Ootori.

Chapter Text

It's been a few days since the physical exam,and today the host club's theme is traditional so the hosts are all wearing kimonos.

"Kouki-kun , you look beautiful in that kimono" 

"Thank you princess, but i'm not used to wearing it, so if it gets loose i can count on you to fix it righ~" its been a while since I've worn one

"We would love to kouki-kun!!"

"The kimonos are all designed by the twins mother, so if your interested you can order from them. Then i can help you wear it , right my princesses" 

The last time i wore a kimono was for'work' and before that was before mom got sick... we all went to a festival together, mom helped me put mine on. That was our first and last time going together before...

"Are you alright kouki-kun??" Kouki snapped from his daydream to see all his customers looking at him worried. Shit

"I'm fine, I'm just tired doing things for my scholarship. But I feel refreshed after spending time with you lovely girls" He gave a wide smile to the girls making them distracted. 

Unknown to Kouki, a few tables away a certain glasses wearing male was eyeing him from afar.
"Why won't you tell us anything..." He whispered to himself

*flashback*

"Kyo-chan!"

Kyoya was in the club room, finishing some business when honey and mori came to find him.

"What's the matter honey senpai??" Now he's curious, honey and mori both had worried looks on their faces.

"Something happened to kou-chan!" honey jumped down from the tall male to stand right in front of kyoya. The worried look changed to a serious one. 

"hmm??" 

"Kou-chan was crying..." the small senpai looked down to his feet " I don't know what happened, but we promised to protect him...I promised" He said now close to crying. 

Kyoya didn't know what so say " He was crying? maybe something happened during the physical exam..." He looked for answers at the taller male. Mori the ever stoic man wore an expression kyoya has only seen when it concerns honey. 

"I don't know what happened! we saw him at the garden crying, he looked so sad... what are we going to do" Honey said looking up at kyoya, tears swelling in his big brown eyes.

"Don't worry honey-senpai, I'll find out what's wrong. For now lets just keep an eye out for him ok" He said, putting his hand on honey's head to comfort him

"Hmm! We can do that, right takashi!" which the latter answered with a stern nod.

*end of flashback*

"Well, if worse comes to worst i'll just take things to my own hands" He sighed and went back to being the shadow king we know and love.


"Kou-chan!!" Honey cried, walking to kouki holding one sandal.

"What's wrong Honey-senpai?" He crouched down to honey's eye level and pats his head.

"I lost my other sandal" He sniffed and hugged kouki. Damn he's cute 

"Weren't you just wearing them a while ago?" Haruhi said, standing beside kouki.

"Don't worry senpai, i'm sure we'll find it" Kouki said patting honey, who is still hugging him, on his back

"Mistukuni..." Mori walked toward the three of them holding one sandal in his hands.

"Look, mori-senpai already found it" Taking the sandal from his senpai, kouki put it back on honey's feet.

"Thank you Kou-chan! I knew I could rely on you" He hugged him again, this time tighter. Huh... Mori's the one who found it though. well lets just go with the flow

"You're welcome honey-senpai, of course you can rely on me." He replied hugging his senpai back.

"But you know you can rely on us to right..." He heard honey whispered. What....??

"What was that senpai??" Honey pulled back from kouki. for a split second he swore honey looked his age for a second there. 

"Nothing kou-chan" And back is the normal child-like honey. 

"If you say so..."

Mori pats kouki's head, and then the third year duo walked away.

"What was that about" Haruhi asked I forgot she was even here

"I'm not sure" did I do something???

..........no. The doctor didn't tell kyoya did he?!!? fuckfuckfuckfuck wait kouki calm the fuck down. even if he did why would he care. yeah why would he care, its not important why would he care...
sighhhhhhhhhhh. its not even kyoya that's acting weird anyway its honey-senpai and mori-senpai and they have no reason to pry into my personal problems, unlike a certain someone. Maybe i'm just overreacting, yeah that's probably it. I should calm down and think logically.
calm down.calm down.calm down.calm down.calm down.calm down. calmdown.calmdown.calmdown calmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdowncalmdown

"NO don't touch me you phony!"

"Huh??" What's going on? Kouki snapped out of his panic daydream.

A girl who is apparently kyoya's fiance appeared.

..................Nope.

I can't handle this kind of craziness.Nope.Not right now

Kouki slowly walked out of the club room hoping no one would notice
I'm sure the wont even notice i'm gone.I'm just going for a quick walk, I'm not running away. Its just a walk... that is, if I don't get lost.hehehe

Unknown to kouki three pairs of eyes watched silently as he went out


After walking for a few minutes kouki ended up outside so, he decided to take this opportunity to finally work on his art project.

So now he's sitting on the grass near a maze.

"This school is really huge huhh"

It was peace full. No one bothered him. No one needed him. He was alone.

Time passed by peacefully and he finished his drawing in no time.

"Ah! Kouki what are you doing here?"

Kouki turned around and saw his silver-head senpai."Atsushi-senpai"

"Am I bothering you?" Atsushi sat next to kouki

"Not really i just finished. Wanna see?" He gave his sketch book to Atsushi 

"Uwahhhh! As always your drawings never disappoint" Atsushi marveled at the drawing. Its beautiful but somehow, it feels lonely. "Do you like drawing kouki-kun?" 

Kouki gave it a thought for e few seconds Hmmmmmmm....

"Well i don't necessarily like it, i just happen to be good at it plus it got me this scholarship.So i guess its like a job??" hands on his chin, he explained to his senpai.

"A job huh. Kouki-kun don't take this the bad way, but what are you living for?" Atsushi stared at kouki with a serious face.

"What am I living for??" Kouki was thrown back by the question.

"Yep. In short, Why are you alive?"

"you've been watching way too much animes senpai. What kind of question is that" He laughed at his senpai.

"That's mean kouki-kun. Just answer the question" He playfully hit his kouhai's shoulder "Just answer the question already"

"fine... well i'm alive because I'm not dead yet." He said in a matter-of-fact tone.

"Wrong"

"What?! How can I be wrong-"

"Just choose another answer"

"Why?-"

"ANOTHER.ANSWER." kouki slightly shivered Damn he's scary.Fineeee......

"Because I have to live...??" Wait why does that sound like a question.......

"Why do you have to live?" Atsushi answered simply.

"But I already-!"

"Why kouki. Why do you have to live?" 

because... becausebecausebecausebecause

"Because I promised!" he yelled at his senpai

"I promised her. I promised to look after them. Its not like I WANT TO LIVE! I JUST HAVE TO!" tears swell up in his eyes. fuck... i've done it now

"Why are you doing this senpai... Its none of your business" He slowly sat back down-He didn't know when but during all this he had unconsciously stood up- to be patted on the head. 

"I'm just looking out for my adorable kouhai" A sweet smile on his face

"But you know kouki, some time ago someone said to me 'Pity yourself and life becomes an endless nightmare'" He looked directly into kouki's eyes 

"Don't live for others kouki,Live because You want to. Only then will life be worth living."

"......I don't understand" He stared at his senpai's sunset eyes, seeing an emotion he could not recognize

His hands still on Kouki's head Atsushi replied "I to didn't understand it at first, but as time goes on it will start to make sense. I promise. Until then Kouki-kun, just be happy Okay??"  Be happy huhh...

"Sure senpai... I'll try. I'm not sure what to think right now to be honest, but yeah... I promise I'll try" 

"That's all I ask" He said smiling at the other.

"Now, I think you're needed elsewhere" He said looking behind kouki, at the corridor not to far away stood Honey and Mori both looking at their direction.

Realizing they've been noticed Honey decided to speak up "Kou-channn!!! We've been looking all over for you!!" Jumping up and down waving at kouki. "Haiii Atsu-chan!!" he added.

Kouki looked at honey and then at Atsushi. 

"Go ahead" He puts his hand down "Thanks senpai" kouki smiled gratefully at Atsushi.

Atsushi waved back at honey as he watched Kouki ran towards the duo, and continued to until the three of them went back inside.

Atsushi stared at the clear blue sky.

"Am I doing this right Dazai-san...?" but no one was there to reply

Chapter Text

"So in short, Renge is not Kyoya's fiance, but we have to treat her nicely because Kyoya said so~"

Kouki said Honey and Mori as they walking back to the music room together.

"Yep"

Honey replied swinging their jointed hands back and forth.

 

"What were you doing with Atsu-chan Kou-chan?" Honey asked. He left out the fact that they had been searching for Kouki for a bit more than half an hour.

 

Kouki's face fell for a second, but only a second.- "Nothing important, he was just keeping me company...." He smiled at Honey.

 

He jumped a bit when there was suddenly a hand on his head but calmed when he looked up to see Mori-senpai.

 

Mori, who noticed that something was not quite right stayed quiet, and merely patted Kouki on his head in comfort.

 

"Mori-senpai?" Kouki was confused by the gesture.

 

He only got a small smile as a reply.

 

What is with people and patting my head?? I'm not a fucking dog, I rather be a cat! Yeah, a small fluffy fat cat, I would love to be a cat or maybe even a rock, yeah that sounds fun to.


 

"What should I make for dinner today?~" Kouki hummed to himself, surprisingly he's in a good mood today.

He continued to think about dinner whilst walking back home.

 

Kouki turned the corner to his house but immediately stopped.

 

What shocked him you ask??

 

Well in front of his two-story house is a bright red Mercedes Benz that is obviously not theirs.

 

Who's the owner you ask?? Well, we're about to find out.

 

What the hell, why is she here?? I thought I told her to call me first!

Kouki cursed to himself sprinting to his house.

 

"I'm home!" He shouted on purpose only to be attacked!!!........

 

by a hug.

 

Yes you read it correctly. He was attacked by a hug.

 

"Oh my sweet cookie I missed you!!!" A woman who looked in her late 60's rubbed Kouki to her face.

"How are you doing, are you eating well? ohh!! You've grown soo much since I last saw you. I Knew I should have took you five with me to Australia" She continued to ramble on still hugging Kouki

 

"Yuriko-sama, why don't we calm down and eat the cakes you bought for them-"

 

Thank god for Midori-san.


When everything calmed down, the five siblings had all sat in the living room listening to their grandmother talk about her latest trip to Australia while eating some cakes.

He was suprised to see Hiromi home-

 

He's been home a lot these days, well it's none of my business.

 

"So Kouki, I heard you got an art scholarship at Ouran!?"

 

SHIT!!!!!

 

Kouki gave a glare to the rather oblivious Midori.

 

"Yeah, I did..." He said hoping it would stop at that, he continued to try and change the subject.

 

"By the wa-"

 

Yuriko gracefully put her tea cup down and gave a rather serious look to Kouki and cut him off mid sentence.

 

"Why didn't you just ask me, if you had asked, I would have enrolled you there years ago. You didn't have to get a scholarship for it!!" She said.

 

"But Yuriko-san, I didn't want to be a bother. Plus it was just on a whim." He replied and gave the sweetest smile he could to his grandmother, which did nothing to her current mood.

 

"But cookie, you would never be a bother. You could ask me for a mansion and I would get it in a heartbeat, same goes for all you munchkins, and I thought we already went over this, call me granny for heavens sake, or even grandma. Just not Yuriko-san!!!"

 

Before she could add more Kouki cut her off-

 

"Kyouka, Kazuki, Hiroki, what do you want for dinner today?" He asked his sister and the twins which instantly perked them up.

 

"I want hamburger steak!"

 

Hiroki puts his hand that is currently holding a fork, up in the air.

 

"No we had that yeaterday, I want omelet rice!" Kazuki gave a glare towards his twin.

 

"Kyouka-chan wants curry..." Spoke from Hiromi's lap.

 

And thus the three went on a debate on what to eat tonight.

 

"Ahh why didn't you asked me?" Hiromi asked.

 

-wiping frosting from Kyouka's face- which was promptly ignored, making Hiromi feel a little down.

 

Yuriko puts a comforting hand on her grandchild's shoulder. She is well aware of Hiromi's trouble, after all he did consult her on what to do, and he has her full support in it.

Let's just hope its not too late for you Hiro-kun...

 

She thought sadly to herself.

 

"How about this, let's go out to eat, on me of course. Then you can all order what you want!!" She said to the three bickering children.

 

The three of them all looked at each other and cheered.

 

"Bu-"

 

"Up-up-up-up-up this is your punishment for not relying on me!!" Yuriko said to Kouki. At this point Kouki knew he had no choice so he agreed reluctantly.

 

So the five siblings all went out to eat with their grandmother.


It was currently 9pm and the ride back home was awkward to say the least.

 

In the car excluding the driver were only Kouki and Hiromi, the three kids decided that they were gonna have a sleepover at their grandma's and Yuriko being the person she is gleefully accepted and she promised Kouki to drop them of at school tomorrow after breakfast and all, and to not worry about a thing.

 

Kouki sighed to himself.

 

Yuriko-san is going to be the death of me. Thank God Father wasn't home, if not there would have been a full on war going on, and he could not handle that nooooppee.

 

Kouki ignored the person next to him and just stared at the window thinking about anything and everything, from his art project, to the host club, Atsushi and what he said, to the disease that he may or may not have, and before he knew it, they arrived home.

Kouki got out of the car, thanking the driver with a quick bow before opening the front door and making a beeline to his room.

-Hearing something from Hiromi something about a friends house??

 

-And just jumped on his bed not even bothering to change his clothes from the exasperating experience, passing out on his bed.

~~~

Kouki looked around, pitch black surrounded him, no, it enveloped him whole.

 

Unaware of whether his eyes were open or closed.

 

Abruptly he panicked he couldn't see his own hands in front of him.

 

Dark, It's too Dark!!!

 

His mind raced.

 

The dark took hold of him, it was sufficating.

 

I can't breath!!!

 

He kicked and fought for his air feeling the last evaporate as the black mass forced out the last of his breath before suddenly, he could breath.

 

Gasping for air he started to hyperventilate which he slowly corrected,

 

A chill....

 

He sensed it almost immediately knowing what it, no who, it was. He didn't have to turn around.

 

"Natsuki..." He whispered.

 

Natsuki wound his cold arms around Kouki's waist nesting his head into his shoulder in the loving embrace.

 

 

"Its all your fault."

 

He whispered into his ear sickeningly sweet. Before those cold loving arms tightened nails digging into his torso.

 

Kouki hissed at the sudden pain but did not fight it.

 

 

He deserved it....

 

 

"It's all your fault!! You should have tried harder!" it echoed in the darkness.

 

Natsuki took his nails that were still embellished in Kouki’s torso and let go seemingly vanishing only to reappear in front of him.

 

Kouki continued to say nothing and just stood there, he expected it, he deserved it.

 

"You dont deserve to live!!"

 

Another clone of Natsuki appeared to his left.

 

"You killed me!!!"

 

Another one to his right.

 

"You should die for what you did!!!"

 

The last one in front of him taking Kouki's chin in his hand and said calmly while looking him dead in the eyes.

 

"This is all your fault-"

 

The spite as clear as crystal in his voice.

 

They vanished, as if they were never there, leaving Kouki alone.....

 

He broke...

 

 

Left alone in the darkness that seemed unending Kouki fell to his knees clutching himself in a lonely embrace.

 

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry I'm so so sorry..."

 

The words came out quickly and quietly progressively get louder as he called out into the unending void hopeing to be heard.

 

"I'm so sorry!!!" He wailed as tears of guilt and sadness washed over his reddened face.

 

"It's all my fault!!!"

 

 

"NATSUKI!!!"

 

The name sounded foreign as it rolled off his lips in his scream of torment.

 

He saw the face he once loved and cherished.

 

Still loved and cherished.

 

The person that he longs for day and night.

 

The person that he betrayed.

 

The person that he could no longer hold in his arms.

 

Now he could only beg, beg for forgiveness for the things that he did.

 

...

 

...

 

 

...

 

 

"I'm sorry...."

 

 

~~

 

He awoke from this nightmare dream gasping for air cold sweat running down his forehead seemingly trying to escape, just as he was.

 

"Fuck-"

 

Kouki slowly got out of bed and stumbled into the bathroom to take a shower.

He moved as if it was a daily occurrence.

 

It was...

 

After he finished, he just sat on his bed and stared at his wall as if he's in a trans, a few minutes passed by while he just sat there.

*PING*

{Are you free rn??}-RK.

 

Kouki looked at the massege and seemed to consider it for a few seconds before replying.

 

{Sure, usual place??}-Hiro.

 

It only took a few seconds before a reply came.

*PING*

{I'll book the same room, C U there~}-RK.

Kouki stood up and got ready to go out.


He opened his door as quietly as possible and tip-toed out of his room, he was halfway down the stairs when he remembered that he was the only one home.

 

"Aaahhh~ I forgot the kids are with Yuriko-san." He sighed and walked normally.

 

When he was about to open the front door, but It opened by itself almost hitting him smack in the face.

 

"What the hell?!?" He shouted falling on his ass.

 

"Shit!! Kouki!!!" Hiromi, who had just gotten home was the one who opened the door.

 

"Are you ok?!! Shit Did it hit you?! I'm so sorry!!" Hiromi puts out a hand to help him out but without even looking at it Kouki got up by himself.

 

Hiromi was hurt but that was expected,

He still doesn't like me huh...

 

 

"I'm fine, now can you please get out of the way?" He said, cold eyes looking directly into Hiromi's.

 

"Uhh-mm- ru-right I'll get out of the way..." He stepped to the side to let Kouki out, and just watched as Kouki walk away.

 

When Kouki was nearly at the gate when Hiromi remembered wait it's 2.Am!!

 

"Kouki where are you going?!! It's two in the fucking morning!!" Hiromi was about to run up to him but was stopped by a hard glare.

 

"It's none of your fucking business." He said and went off not sparing another glance at his brother.

 

Left behind Hiromi could only watch as his little brother walk away getting smaller and smaller till he turned at the corner.

 

"DAMMIT! DAMMIT! DAMNIT!!!" He rubbed his face in frustration.

 

He gave one last look at the direction that Kouki went and with a determined look on his face, went back inside.

 

Next time I'll get it right. I won't let you be alone Kouki, not anymore.
