It was an absolutely one hot and torrid kiss.

As she amateurishly tried to suck on his tongue, he felt a twirling sensation within. In the end, he ended up continuing all the work for her. She clung to him, and he held her tightly. If he didn't realize that she was almost gasping for breath, he wouldn't have let her go.

He was actually aroused, as much as he hated to admit it.

As he looked at her flushed cheeks and lust-filled eyes, he turned his back on her. It was not because he found her unappealing. It was because his arousal was so evident that he doesn't want her to notice it.

"Ken…" she called out his name softly, and he has to bite the insides of his cheeks to calm himself. After a few deep breaths, he turned to face her when he felt that he was a little composed.

He caressed her cheeks with his fingers.

"Kana, I am a man. Don't tempt me too much." He whispered. "You are not yet ready."

Her face reddened, but she met his eyes.

"I am ready Ken. It's you who is not ready."

He was taken aback by her words. His brows knitted.

'What does she mean?'

"Kana, don't play word games with me. I am as ready as I could be."

He pulled her close to him again, and it indeed made her heart somersault, as always when it comes to him. She touched his face, and she wondered how soft and smooth his skin was for a man who has no physical vanity like him.

She could offer herself to him with all her heart willingly, right at that instant. However, she wants to be acknowledged as she is. She wants to be felt as she is, not as somebody else's apparition.

But Kana was painfully aware that Ken was referring to his readiness as a man, while she was referring to his heart.

"Ken, can you make love to me without thinking about Yuki?"

Kana knew that Yuki's name would serve as an icebreaker in that heated moment. And she almost hated herself for bringing her name up when she felt his hold loosened. She just ruined that magical moment in his arms!

But she could not refrain herself from doing it. Although the only thing she wants is to be his, she won't be a stand-in, she won't be a substitute to anybody.

The smoldering desire that turned his eyes dark blue earlier gradually dissipated. Kana felt hurt at the reality that even though he has begun to notice her as a woman, his heart is still caged.

She kept her eyes hidden behind her lashes, and she tried hard to turn her expression into a less desperate one.

"Let's call it a day, shall we." She said afterwards, turning her back to him.

She could not suppress herself anymore, she would cry any moment now and she doesn't want him to witness her at her weakest. She wants to be the sunshine that will brighten up his days, not the cloud that will cau

eart which she assumed to be made of stone. "I came here to ask if you have already bid goodbye to your bodyguard and so-called boyfriend."

She narrowed her eyes, displeased with the words that came from his arrogant mouth.

"Why would I say goodbye to him?"

"Oh, because the loser for this morning's fight will have to give up on you. So he has to go back to where he came from and leave you here…with me."

The insolent way on how he stressed the last two words irritated her, and she glowered at him with disdain.

"Don't be so full of yourself, Akatsuki. Ken will not lose to the likes of you."

Kirito's eyes narrowed, and he started to move towards her. She held her ground. She is ready to defend herself if he would pull something stupid again. However, Kirito stopped a few steps away from her, noticing how she was standing on her guard.

"Care to tell me what do you mean by…the likes of me, Lady Kana?"

She was deliberately insulting him. And she has no intention of backing down. She would not give him a chance nor an idea that she likes him. She hated everything about this man, from the moment that he told that lie in front of the family heads that he liked her when they were children.

She has her full memory intact. And she knows that she has never met him even then. It was an obvious lie that he said in order to make up a reason for wanting to fight for her. But in reality, he just want to be the clan leader.

"It's as you might think, Akatsuki. The likes of you…who would do anything for power and influence. Ken will never stoop down to your level."

She noticed how his expression changed from his arrogant one to a menacingly cold countenance. He glowered at her, obviously trying to make her cower in fear. But she wasn't afraid of him, so she just met his cold glare with her impatient ones.
