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
