The Karuta Masters’ Heart
This story is slash, yaoi, Malexmale, whatever you wish to call it. It will have men kissing each other, and maybe adult situations. However so far, it’s pretty PG. The main relationship is Arata Wataya/Taichi Mashima, Chihaya Ayase, is just a best friend. I should also mention I haven’t seen all of Chihayafuru, but I plan to, don’t worry so much.
I hope you enjoy, sorry for much a long author’s note.
In the beginning, it was a story about Karuta, and the blossoming of a new friendship.
Then it slowly transformed, it changed into a horrid aching sadness, heart wrenching confusion, and timid acknowledgement. Now all that was left, were masks frail to the touch, that had been worn religiously through the years, all of them too scared to break them. All that was left, was Karuta, but no longer did they look at it with passion embezzled eyes, now it was the only thing holding them together.
And the frayed strings that held them, couldn’t help but fall apart.
A Somber Beginning
"You know Arata…you can’t treat love like Karuta. You can’t just memorize the right poems and win. You have to really want it and I know you do. Enough that even when he’s not near, you still go crazy just thinking about him." Chihaya whispered slowly.
"I’ll never know why you haven’t told him about how you feel right ?" Chihaya looked somberly at Arata, the wind twirling her hair.
Arata shook his head, eyes partially hidden by the young dusk, “You can never tell him, never !”
Arata’s blue eyes were, not quite sea or sky, but had a piercing sadness lingering in them.
Chihaya clenched her fists and stared at Arata.
"Why ?!? Why am I the one that has to see her two best friends like this ?! Why can you just tell Taichi you love him ?! Why Arata huh ?! I don’t want to see you guys hate each other, and drift apart…."
Tears poured out of pristine golden eyes, making her voice waver as she talked, “Why don’t you guys…Why can’t you…why ?!”
Chihaya’s crying continued, as Arata stared,” You know, Chihaya… I remember when we’d say we would play Karuta forever …together…It was my second dream…things change Chihaya. We can’t always stay the same, Taichi is happy where he is, with who he has in his arms, I don’t want to disturb that happiness…”
Chihaya’s boot clad feet stomped on the cracked concrete, her cheeks red, eyes filling with determination.
"You idiot ! I don’t care if we can’t always be the same ! Be selfish ! I don’t care that he has a girlfriend right now ! Take him away ! Show him who loves him ! The both of you will never be happy, if you continue on this path ! Please…promise me…Arata-kun, you have to tell Taichi, tell him you love him !"
Arata gazed at the pink sunset minutes away from nightfall, as the biting wind ruffled his hair, “You know I don’t make promises I can’t keep, Chihaya…”
Arata walked away from Chihaya toward his home, the shadows of night threatening to swallow his body.
An enraged cry vibrated in the air,” ARATA, I SWEAR IF YOU DON’T TELL HIM, I WILL !”
Chihaya hurtled toward Arata, hands twitching, promising to smack sense into him.
Needless to say, Arata went home with not only bruised cheeks, but wounded pride, yet he hadn’t had so much hope for the future in such a long time, Taichi…could be his.
And if there was one thing in the world that Arata loved more than Karuta, it was Taichi.
It was one game he refused to lose, because even if realization came from Chihaya’s stinging slaps, he would win something more than being the best Karuta Master in the world…he would win Taichi’s heart and all that came with it.
Extremely sorry if it sucks, or wasn’t up to your standards,
