Summary: Ryo finds out why Yamapi was avoiding him.
“Pi-chan, I finally found you” alone a smaller man cheered, before latching himself to the taller man’s back. “Pi-chan, you‘ve been avoiding me and Jin for so long… even though we live together…” the smaller man whispered. “I’m sorry,” Yamapi whispered. “If you were home all along you should have told me so I didn’t have to search for you,” the smaller man pouted.
“Why were you searching for me?” Yamapi asked. “I missed you and I wanted to know if you were mad at me,” the smaller man whispered. “Ryo, I would never be mad at you,” Yamapi replied. “But, You were avoiding me…” Ryo frowned. “Ryo, come here,” Yamapi sighed, patting his lap. Ryo smiled and unlatched himself from Yamapi’s back before climbing on top of Yamapi’s lap.
“So you’re not mad?” Ryo asked when he got comfortable and leaned against Yamapi’s chest. “No, I was just bust thinking and writing something,” Yamapi replied. “What are you writing?” Ryo asked. “A message to someone important,” Yamapi whispered. “Who’s that important person?” Ryo asked, hiding his pout in Yamapi’s chest. “Someone I love,” Yamapi whispered before petting Ryo’s hair. “You mean you’ve been avoiding me because you wanted to confess to the person you love?” Ryo asked while burying his face deeper in Yamapi’s chest. “I’m sorry,” Yamapi whispered.
“Ryo…” Yamapi called out when he felt his shirt getting wet. “Pi-chan, can’t you just stay with Jin and me forever?” Ryo sniffled. “Who said I was leaving?” Yamapi asked. “But… You were avoiding us because of your feelings for someone…” Ryo replied. “I… the reason is because that person is close to me…” Yamapi replied. “Who?…” Ryo asked. “You…” Yamapi whispered. “Ryo read this,” Yamapi smiled nervously before handing Ryo a sheet of paper.
From a distance, I see you smile.
From a distance, I see you laugh.
From a distance, I see you cry.
Just a little longer, and I could capture your smile to my memory.
Just a little more, and I could engrave your voice to my mind.
Just a little closer, and I could reach out to comfort you.
A far away smile.
A far away laugh.
A far away cry.
From a distance, I watch over you.
From a distance, I support you.
From a distance, I yearn for you.
My life support.
From a distance.
Controlling my desire of wanting you.
Controlling myself from attacking you.
Controlling myself from taking a wrong turn.
To not scare you.
To not destroy you.
To not hurt you.
Your puppy like grin.
Your childish laughter.
Your silent cries.
These emotions, impossible to control
Before I break, before I take the wrong turn.
I want to tell you about this love.
I want to fill you with this love.
Before it’s too late, I want to tell you about my heart.
From a distance, you’ve captured my heart.
From a distance, I gave you my love.
From a distance.
“Pi-chan… You dummy! You’re the one that created the distance by avoiding me…” Ryo commented while trying to hide his grin. “I know…” Yamapi replied before hugging Ryo tighter. “So that important person is me?” Ryo asked. “Yes, it’s you, it’s only you,” Yamapi whispered. “Pi-chan… Why didn’t you just tell me?” Ryo giggled. “I needed time,” Yamapi replied. “Oh… I love you too,” Ryo blushed. “Would you stay with me forever?” Yamapi asked. “Yes,” Ryo nodded and Yamapi smiled.
