"Indeed, she is, Akatsuki. But I suggest that you keep your fascination to yourself."

Ken's deep voice reached her ears like music, and Kirito's like a curse. With a smug look on his face, Kirito turned towards Ken. An awkward silence filled the room and the air became thick that Kana was wondering why these two men possess such strong but conflicting aura.

Kirito was murky while Ken was enigmatic, yet they are both cold.

However, Kana knew that Ken could be as warm as any man is.

"Ken! I'm surprised that you come here." Kana's voice eased the tension, and both men glanced her way.

She was smiling at both of them, and the two were like wild animals who were eyeing their prey at the same time. Yet, they were eyeing her not to consume her, but to protect her.

Kirito lowered his gaze and walked towards the door.

"I will leave you two for now." He said in a low voice and once he passed through where Ken was standing, he murmured something only for him to hear.

Ken's face turned stony, but he did not say anything. Kirito grinned slyly and left them alone.


Kana's arms flew to his waist, and Ken stood frigid for an instant, for he totally forgot that Kirito just irked him a moment ago. The scent of her newly washed hair wafted through his nostrils, and as she nestled her face on his broad chest, his arms patted her hair instinctively in a gentle manner.

He felt good that she is safe.

He felt better when he learned that she was not defiled.

Ken knew that he would have killed the man, if he succeeded in ruining her. It would be his first time to kill somebody without the order from the Mentor.

"Kana, how do you feel now?"

He asked after a few moments of silence between them.

Kana lifted her face to look at him, her eyes were bright with happiness.

"I missed you, Ken."

Her words surprised him, for it was just yesterday morning since they last saw each other. His expression softened as he realized that time seemed to move so slow when they are not together.

In that instant, his thoughts were exactly the same with hers.

He missed her.

His warm and powerful hands cupped her face, and she stayed looking at him with such anticipation. Her hands were still wrapped around his waist. Their bodies were giving off heated signals which were mutual between them. Ken searched her eyes for


She nodded.

"But first, I want to formally ask you…"

She held her breath and her hands flew to her chest when Ken let go of her face. He knelt on one knee in front of her, and lifted his face to meet hers. He very gently took one of her hands, which was sweating with a mixture of tension and anticipation.

Kana thought that he looked like a magnificent knight basking in the striking rays of the afternoon sun, and she could suddenly hear the birds chirping in the surroundings, along with the serene breathing of the carps on the pond just outside her room. She became instantly aware how everything around her looked and felt so extra-ordinarily beautiful.

His eyes were zealously penetrating as they trapped her in his mesmerizing gaze.

She was beyond words.

'My knight, my blue-eyed prince.'

"Will you be my girlfriend, Kana?"

She would just have to say 'yes'.

She has practiced a lot for this particular situation, and she has always imagined this scene on her numerous daydreams. Yet, she never expected the emotions that would fill her heart would be as overwhelming as this.

It was pure bliss.

Finally, she nodded, without breaking their eye contact.

"Yes, Ken. I want to be your girlfriend."

And there it goes, her dream.

He smiled to her, that heart-popping freaking dazzling smile of his that she promised herself to be directed only to her, only at her.

At last.

Ever so gently, he brought her left hand near his face, and he kissed it while his eyes were locked onto hers.

It was the happiest time of her life.
