Ouran Koko Host Club, Kyouya/Tamaki, PG, 1147 words
Tamaki wants to know what Kyouya and Haruhi are talking about.

For 7snogs theme #2: jealousy.
Also for svz_insanity, who needs a little cheering up, and because I love her.

“What are they talking about?” Tamaki was sulking, dark gaze directed towards the other side of the music room where Haruhi was having an intense, if slightly awkward, conversation with their bespectacled vice-president. “He should stop manipulating all her time!”

“Who knows?” The twins shrugged in tandem, exchanging puzzled glances. They were seated side-by-side in two identical chairs facing Haruhi and Kyouya. Tamaki had draped himself over the sofa, arms resting on the back as he peered dejectedly across the room. Even his hair seemed to be drooping along with his shoulders.

“Why won’t she talk to Daddy?” he wailed. “I just wanted to help!”

Haruhi had been bluntly cold to him earlier, after all the customers had left, more so than usual. Her response to his daily—hourly—hug had been a shove and a glare, and he’d received a short, “It’s none of your business, Senpai,” when he’d asked in concern what was wrong. Mori had had to pick Honey off the ground for fear he would drown in the flood of tears Tamaki had poured out loudly in the corner.

Kyouya had steered her away from the others, pulling her into a seat at the table where they were now discussing something—some sordid scheme, Tamaki was sure, about how to make his life miserable because Kyouya was such a bad, bad influence on his precious little Haruhi—in quiet voices. Tamaki leaned further over the back of the sofa, straining his ear towards them.

“Tono,” said the twins, barely grinning, just as he toppled over in an inelegant tangle of limbs.

“Ow!” he exclaimed, and Haruhi glanced over. She made something like a face of disgust that shot arrows straight through his heart before looking away disinterestedly. Tamaki was limp and dejected as Mori picked him off the ground and disentangled him from himself.

“Tama-chan,” Honey said, petting his knee. “Don’t be sad. I’m sure Haru-chan is just having a bad day!”

Tamaki sniffled.

“Or maybe,” offered Hikaru, propping his chin up on a fist.

“She just hates you,” finished Kaoru, raising an eyebrow.

“Takashi! Help!” cried Honey as Tamaki withered at the twins’ words and started sobbing all over the third-year beside him. Quietly, Mori reached in a hand and freed Honey, slipping a tasseled silk pillow into Tamaki’s arms in his stead.

“If the girls could see their prince now,” said a cool voice from behind him, “we would lose a lot of customers.” Kyouya met Tamaki’s red, wet eyes with an unreadable look. Tamaki knew him well enough to interpret it anyway. I’ll let it go for now because it’s after hours, but you had better mind yourself when we have customers.

Sometimes Tamaki wondered if he was really president of the host club.

“Kyouya,” he whined, “what were you and Haruhi talking about?” He shot Haruhi, who was standing beside Kyouya with an equally inscrutable expression on her face, a deeply wounded look. “It’s not nice to keep things from Daddy!”

“I’ve already told you, Senpai, I don’t need two fathers.” Haruhi’s voice was flat and merciless. Her eyes took on a rather annoyed gleam.

“Now, now, Haruhi,” murmured Kyouya, stepping closer to the sofa and sliding a hand over Tamaki’s hair, petting gently. “Be kind. Our prince has a fragile soul, you know.” A smile flitted briefly across his face at the muffled snorts coming from four throats, and the small giggle escaping Honey. “Why don’t you go avail yourself of the services of our Special Male Student nurse? I’ve already informed her of the circumstances.”

Tamaki turned under Kyouya’s hand, which was resting atop Tamaki’s head and fingers threaded loosely through golden locks. He blinked. “What circumstances?” he questioned, eyes dark and concerned. “Haruhi. What’s the matter?” He gave Kyouya a sharp look when a red flush crept slowly over Haruhi’s face. “Kyouya.”

“I’ll tell you later, president,” Kyouya said softly, not looking at him.

“It’s nothing. And I don’t need to see the nurse, I already told you that, Kyouya-senpai.” Haruhi was undoubtedly blushing.

Hikaru and Karou were interested in this development. “Oh?” the said, tilting their heads in unison, curious glint in their eyes. They rose to their feet and danced toward her, passing a wide-eyed Honey who was sitting in Mori’s lap and watching avidly, biting one of Usa-chan’s ears. “Let’s play a game!” the twins said devilishly, “we can—“

“No,” said Kyouya. The look he directed at the twins through his glasses made them stop in their tracks.

“Kyouya!” Tamaki was frowning.

“I’m fine!” insisted Haruhi, twisting her fingers into the hem of her uniform jacket.

“Haru-chan?” Honey’s voice was concerned.

“Haruhi!” Tamaki had risen to his feet, Kyouya’s hand sliding away, and he rounded the edge of the sofa now to grab Haruhi’s shoulders. “What’s the matter?” he demanded. “You promised not to do anything dangerous anymore! Why do you need to see the nurse? Are you sick? Injured?” His voice was starting to take on a note of panic.

Kyouya adjusted his glasses. “Go, Haruhi.” His voice brooked no argument. “You know as well as I that if this continues, your number of customers will decrease, thus lowering our net profit. It will only increase the amount of time it takes you to repay your debt as well,” he added.

Haruhi bit her lip and, slowly, nodded. She pushed Tamaki away. “I— Don’t worry, senpai,” she finally said as she made her way to the door. She glanced over her shoulder at the other members. “I’m really fine.” A brief smile and she left.

“Kyouya!” Tamaki rounded on the only one who knew what was going on. He looked a little wild.

“This is a delicate matter,” Kyouya said, flipping open his notebook. “I won’t compromise her privacy.”

And that was that.

Except, later that night, Tamaki was sprawled boneless over the bed, a sheen of sweat glistening on his back. His head rested in his folded arms as he lay on his stomach, recovering his breath. “Kyouya,” he said, “what was going on with Haruhi today?”

Kyouya’s eyes were sharper and brighter without his glasses and the curl of his smirk was more pronounced. “You're not easily distracted, I see. I feel like I should be offended that you’re still thinking about her after all that.” He was sitting on his bed, leaning against the pillows, his bare torso gleaming with lamplight.

Tamaki blew out a breath. “Don’t be an idiot, Kyouya.” He shifted and propped himself up with an arm, wrapping the other around Kyouya’s neck and dragging him down for a kiss. “It’s different,” he said against Kyouya’s mouth. “Please.”

A slight chuckle. “She was ill-tempered, Tamaki, because it was the first day of her menstrual cycle and she had cramps.”

Tamaki paled. His mind ground slowly to a halt.

There were some things a father just did not want to know about his daughter.

Aww, sorry 'bout that! XD But it was just too tempting of an idea. Tamaki really would have no clue what to do about something like that. He's all about the seduction and the charming, but give him a Real Girl Problem? He, uh, could offer roses and chocolates...but otherwise be mostly useless. Hee.

Thank you! It was fun, oh so much fun.

Every fandom needs at least one female-problems-leaving-males-sweating-and-uncomfortable fic, right? It's a staple, like Truth or Dare or--huh. I think I just gave myself a plotbunny. >___>

Thanks! I love Kyouya.

Mei! ♥♥♥♥♥

YOU ARE SO GOOD TO ME. AFJLJLFAFLAS TAMAKI, YOU DORK.

You know exactly what makes me flail and squee too. *_____* Shirtless!Kyouya without glasses.

Mori had had to pick Honey off the ground for fear he would drown in the flood of tears Tamaki had poured out loudly in the corner.
I love how you incorporate little details like that. They really complete the fic. I hope Bones is paying attention... *would love to see that in the anime because that should be canon* I also like how the twins were going to torment Haruhi but Kyouya stepped in.

Kyouya/Tamaki is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm all Tamaki/Haruhi, woo! But at the same time, I think volume six broke me. Tamaki was massaging Kyouya's shoulders. This fandom tears me into a million different pieces because I can fanthom any shipping and I flail and act half my age over every single one of them.

Also, the last line wins. :D Poor Tamaki. He can deal with girls.... usually. But not this. This is even beyond him.

YOU= SO MUCH LOVE. *adds to memories and dances*

I can't do much but I do what I can. ::wry:: Which is, apparently, churning out fic like whoa. But cheer-up fics are fun and Ouran is fun and Kyouya/Tamaki si fun. XD Even if I'm like you and agonize over all the non-OTPs I love in this series. Tamaki/Haruhi, Kyouya/Tamaki, Mori/Haruhi, Honey/Mori, Hikaru/Kaoru, etc etc. It's awful, I think, except it means more fic. So all is not lost! ♥

Tamaki is clueless at the best of times. Whee!

AND I LOVE HONEY AND MORI. SO MUCH. ::sparkles::

LOVE YOU TOO.

I knew it~!!! XDDD

Wonderfully done! Poor Tamaki... >3 It's always fun to see a guys reaction to those matters.... >D

Hee. I will just pretend that it's because of my awesome skills of foreshadowing and your brilliance rather than any Really Blatant Signs I dropped. ;D Glad you liked!
Vickytenshibattosai on June 3rd, 2006 05:21 am (UTC)
I love this! X3 You managed to portray the amount of over-exaggerated drama in the anime! XD (Not that it's a bad thing XD) Tamaki is just to curious for his own good XD
it's weird to have a vibrating cat on your head: springmeiface on June 3rd, 2006 02:14 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm always trying to find the line between Tamaki's two extremes. Sometimes it's too easy to make him flaily all the time, but it's so much part of him. :O He's such a dork. ::pats::
focus and we'll be flyingfiredraygon97 on June 3rd, 2006 05:53 am (UTC)
Hahaha, I knew it. XDD; My favourite part of this has got to be when Tamaki's crying and Honey tries to comfort him, but the twins just make it worse. >DD And Mori being Mori~~!! ♥ AWESOMENESS.
it's weird to have a vibrating cat on your head: friendshipmeiface on June 3rd, 2006 02:15 pm (UTC)
But of course! Because, er, you have great powers of deduction. ♥ God I LOVE HONEY AND MORI. They are seventeen kinds of awesomeness. ♥♥♥ I mean, I love everyone else too, but Mori and Honey are so easy and beautiful and fun to write and I am very, very *____* over their interaction.

::cough:: I mean. :D Yay!

"“Now, now, Haruhi,” murmured Kyouya, stepping closer to the sofa and sliding a hair over Tamaki’s hair, petting gently." I'm guessing it's supposed to be hand? Also, the last line owns as does Kyouya/Tamaki! To quote firedraygon97, AWESOMENESS.

Ahah. Yes. ::fixes:: I shouldn't write or edit when I am sleep-deprived and it is late at night, apparently. XD Thanks for catching it. And yay for liking!
mienai2401mienai1582 on June 3rd, 2006 07:29 am (UTC)
*giggles* I figured out Haruhi's problem when Kyouya advised her to speak with the doctor and she refused, but the last line still had me laughing XD Nice, cute fic, I really love your Mori/Honey ♥
it's weird to have a vibrating cat on your head: kirakirameiface on June 3rd, 2006 02:19 pm (UTC)
You are a wise soul and I, um, am good at foreshadowing. ::convinces self!:: Yes.

I LOVE MORI/HONEY TOO. *_____* Like a lot. A lot.

Glad it could make you laugh!

This was so cute! Tamaki overreacting is always fun, and the rest of the characters were perfect, too. (And someone should draw that last scene. Mmm~)

There were some things a father just did not want to know about his daughter.

Bwahahahaha. xD Poor Tamaki.
it's weird to have a vibrating cat on your head: ohohomeiface on June 3rd, 2006 08:22 pm (UTC)
Mmm, Kyouya shirtless and with no glasses? I'll have to agree with you: someone should definitely draw it. ::eyes you:: How are you with art? XD

Torturing Tamaki is fun and oh-so-easy. Poor dear.

Thanks! It was inspired by a friend going through one of those Crappy Days™. ^^; I figured Tamaki could suffer a bit too, mostly 'cause I love him.

I just KNEW this fic was going to be written. yayay

But I didn't think it would have added slash. ♥ Hooray! Brilliant. xD

Well, I had most of this written before I realized, hey, why not kill two birds with one stone and make this one of my 7snogs entries too? XD So I threw in some Kyouya/Tamaki at the end, because they are cute. Glad you liked!

Fran: Robinfranwi on June 3rd, 2006 03:06 pm (UTC)
Awesomeness! I adore these fics where Tamaki is so enrapt with Haruhi, but has this secret ongoing relationship with Kyoya. Why does that seem so canon to me?! But I love it. I feel like I should be offended that you’re still thinking about her after all that. Yeah, I had a few images flash through my mind of all that, lol. I actually started to think she might be pregnant for a little bit there - thanks to Tamaki - which is why she was seething at him. I was starting to worry as much as the others! LOL. But that last line definitely had me tee-heeing. Thanks for the entertainment!! :)
it's weird to have a vibrating cat on your head: omgwtfmeiface on June 3rd, 2006 09:15 pm (UTC)
Pregnant? Oh God I hope not. D: I think Tamaki/Haruhi is as cute as anything (but not as hot as Kyouya/Tamaki ♥) but I don't think I could handle that! We'll stick with the monthly cycle. ^.~

Thanks for reading! It was fun to write.
