Disclaimer: I make no claim on the characters in this story.
Pairing: Kato Shigeaki/Nishikido Ryo
Summary: Snippets in the story of Ryo and Shige.
Author's Notes: This story is based on Kim Dong Ryul's Like a Child.

Almost every relationship starts with misplaced glances, lingering touches, and soft whispers. Just like any other relationship, they started with those. When you ask them, they cannot answer when and how it all started. It was a very sudden development in their friendship that neither knew how to address the thing. Given the situation, this should have never happened because they weren’t in the same group anymore. They were merely colleagues who may or may not see each other every once in a while. But as fate had planned, even after the other one left the group, somehow, they still managed to end up together.

Kato Shigeaki glances at the man beside him who is currently concentrated in composing a song. He studies Nishikido Ryo’s profile and feels his heartbeat accelerate at the serene smile that graced the older man’s face. It’s always like this, both of them sitting in the living room of either apartment in silence. Shige then thinks back to their relationship. There was no awkward I love yous or romantic confessions. It was simply shy glances and lingering touches which then escalated to holding hands when no one is around and then finally, going to each other’s apartment seeking comfort that they can only fin with each other.

‘It’s not like we’re official,’ thought Shige.

He’s right; there was not exact date of when they got together. Everything just fell into place; there was no need for words, just actions. Shige then turns back to the book he’s reading, not noticing the looks Ryo was giving him.

For Ryo, Shige is his strength. Even when he’s not there, just knowing that he’s available whenever he needs Shige is strength enough. When he left NEWS, he felt helpless, guilty that the group they nurtured over the years is slowly decreasing in number of members. He knows that some of the members left were somehow sad and betrayed by what happened but with Shige, he knows that there were no hard feelings. He was just there and that was what gave Ryo the confidence to face the fans again.


Ryo just finished a tiring shoot when he catches sight of the replay of Hanawake no Yon Shimai, Shige’s drama. It was one of his many bed scenes and even though it was shot when they were still just friends, he couldn’t help but feel jealous of the girl. Hastily and without thinking, he reaches for his phone, hits 1 and presses send. Shige’s his number one in speed dial.

“Hello,” Shige’s sleepy voice answers. Ryo then feels stupid, ashamed that he would get jealous of such a thing.

“Ryo, if you’re not going to say anything, don’t call me at this time of night. I do sleep at a normal time, okay?” Shige’s irritated voice cuts off his thoughts.

“It’s just that…,” Ryo trails off. He hears Shige sigh and feels guiltier.

“If this is about Hanawake no Yon Shimai’s replay, don’t mind that. It’s just acting,” Ryo hears Shige say in a soft voice.

“Yeah, I’m sorry for waking you up. Good night, Shige.” He says then hangs up, not even waiting for the younger man to answer.
Ryo stares at the phone and smiles softly.


Shige slowly turns the lock of Ryo’s apartment, knowing the other man is well asleep. He gently toes off his shoes, puts down his bag, and pulls off his jacket as he walks to the bedroom. As expected, Shige sees Ryo sprawled on one side of the bed, snoring softly. Quietly, he walks to the closet and takes out his pajamas. After going through the night’s routine, Shige gently slips next to Ryo, taking the older man into his arms. He holds Ryo tightly to his chest, afraid that he might not be there when he wakes up.

Ryo wakes up the next day with Shige’s scent lingering in the pillow and sheets. The younger man is well gone, having a shoot nearby. He walks to the kitchen and sees breakfast and coffee ready. There’s a note on the counter and Ryo picks it up. There, in Shige’s writing, is what both have been waiting for.

For making me laugh,
For making me cry,
For making me feel my heart flutter in my chest,
For allowing me to trust you, for being a strength to me,
When I open my eyes and see you in the morning, all I want to say is
Thank you so much.
For being here by my side, for dreaming with me,
For being you who gives US a meaning,
I love you

Chloe-dear!!! ;A;
it felt ages since I 'properly' read a RyoShige fic esp after all the big news of RyoPi leaving.
i can't exactly say how much that affected me and actually became one of the biggest source for my depression and disheartening over fandom. (lol, I suck! xD)
but seeing that you wrote RyoShige again makes me extra happy and well, alive? idek. x__x
so thank you *____* feel my love for you with the hearts i'm sending to you virtually ^3^ ♥♥♥

now on to the fic, at first i thought it was written on the premise of 6ninNEWS nut heeeey, you wrote the timeline AFTER so *_____*! I mean, I've been wanting to read more on what could have happened to RyoShige and you wrote them to actually be closer and together! hell yes! XDD

and then it was so them with the lingering touches and shy glances! *///* i can totally picture the 2 of them doing that bcz hahaha, they've always been like that in my head =))

‘It’s not like we’re official,’ thought Shige.
*___________________* very much Shige. too awkward and too unsure. lols. :3

For Ryo, Shige is his strength. Even when he’s not there, just knowing that he’s available whenever he needs Shige is strength enough.
d'awww~ Shige was Ryo's strength ♥ *melts in a puddle of goo*

jealous!Ryo FTW! woot! XDD and ofc, Shige was his number 1 on speed dial! who else would he bother at the wee hours of the night just bcz he felt jealous? muahaha! *_*

aslkjdlakshdklashfd THE LAST SCENE! y so fluffy???? :3333
I love how you made Shige the one who comes home late and went out before Ryo bcz most of the time, it was Ryo doing that xDD

For being you who gives US a meaning,
I love you
/flails arms endlessly while mending a toothache for too much sweet. >w<

Ate Geeeeeee~ ♥

This was so random, I swear. When news broke that RyoPi were leaving NEWS, I thought I wouldn't be able to write RyoShige again. But ohwell, they still are my OTP so I can't completely give them up. :D

Although I think 4nin NEWS is still a sensitive topic to other fans, I believe that I should actually just go ahead and write them. :))

I thought of the reversal of roles because Ryo's more free now. :DDDDDD

And thank you, thank you. I thought I couldn't write anything anymore. :)

>:D< :*

Oh bb... I miss this..I miss them.. ;~;

You know what I love? The abruptness of Shige. And how mature he sees their relationship and yet he's the one who bowed down to say exactly what each of them want to say. Not saying that Ryo isn't but its probably because knowing Shige isn't so open with his feelings he'd rather wait for Shige to act on it instead of forcing him into feeling something he might probably not. (which isn't even at all true)

But really though...its so nice and beautiful~ <3333

I miss this for sure.
