Chapter 22: A Blessing in Disguise

Yao regretted forbidding Xiang and Kiku to follow him when he stormed out of his dormitory. He had not wanted them to come along lest they speak up for Ivan and possibly soften his resolve to punish the lying imbecile. Now, all he could think of was how Xiang could have saved him from Ivan's clutches with his Martial arts skills if he was here. Not for the last time, he regretted choosing anime art over Martial arts for his extra-curricular activity in college. Bloody deja vu.

"Yao~ Forgive me~" The source of Yao's migraine purred from below, as two tearful, violet round eyes looked up at him dolefully.

"Never aru!" Yao cried. "Release me right now!"

"Oh," Ivan sniffled. "Then I'll remain on my knees until you do."

Ivan went back to pressing his face against Yao's sensitive regions, inciting a groan of exasperation from Yao.

"You can remain on your knees for all you want, but for heaven's sake, let me go aru!" Yao wailed.

"I've said that I won't let you go unless you forgive me. I'm a man of a my word and I have never lied to you, nor do I intend to lie to you da," Ivan said stubbornly as he hugged Yao even harder.

"You lied to me when you said you had Kitty-chan with you aru! And don't touch me there!"

"Did I? But you were the one who started screaming 'Kitty-chan' when I took her out. Since you're supposed to be the expert on Kitty-chan, I assumed that you knew at a glance that she was a dud and that you didn't mind," Ivan defended.

Yao's mind played back to the glorious moment when he first laid his eyes on the cutest Kitty-chan he had ever met. Or what he had thought was Kitty-chan. He remembered with a pang that indeed, Ivan had not suggested in anyway that it was a bona fide Kitty-chan. Yao had taken for granted that it was a real Kitty-chan and pounced on her on his own accord.

"Fine, so that was my mistake aru!" Yao said bitterly. "But you bullied that little boy called Latvia and I dislike that about you!"

Ivan let out an ominous snarl. "Speaking of Raivis, I can't believe you hugged a stranger and gave him your phone number when you didn't even know his name. And he's not so little, he's only one year younger than me da!"

"Well, it's none of your business what I do with other people aru. Get your head off my privates!" Yao cried.

"How can it be none of my business when I'm your boyfriend?" Ivan demanded, ignoring Yao's request.

"You're not my boyfriend! I never ever want a bully for a boyfriend!" Yao retorted.

"Yao, you won't forgive me da?" Ivan asked imploringly.

"Seeing that you refuse to admit your mistake, no," Yao replied flatly.

"I see~ Looks like this will go on for a long time da~"

Detaching one arm from Yao's butt and placing his free palm on the floor, Ivan skilfully tipped a startled Yao over his shoulder with his other arm. He carefully balanced Yao on his shoulder and then maintaining a tight grip on Yao's small waist, he slowly stood up.

"Let me down aru! Let me down!" Alarmed that he was now hanging upside down, Yao could do little but scream, kick out his feet and pummel his fists against Ivan's back. His efforts were fruitless as Ivan calmly carried him towards his bunk bed. Soon, he found himself sliding off Ivan's shoulder, his bottom connecting with soft mattress and his feet thankfully touching solid ground.

His relief was short-lived. To his horror, Ivan had reacquainted his arms with the back of his waist and was staring at him with a creepily resolute expression. Instinctively, Yao drew his hands to his collar and covered it protectively.

"Don't... don't commit any crimes aru! You'll regret it for life! I'll make sure you regret it for life aru!" Yao cried almost hysterically as he fruitlessly tried to back away from Ivan.

To his surprise and relief, Ivan remained on his knees in front of Yao and laid his head docilely on Yao's lap. Uncomfortably near his vital regions, but at least not directly against it.

"If we're going to be here for a long time, you'd be more comfortable if you sat down da?" Ivan said tenderly.

Yao stared down at the large head of silvery blond hair in disbelief. How he wished he could look inside his brain to see what he was thinking. This boy was simply unfathomable!

"Don't think that by pretending to be considerate, you will earn my forgiveness aru," Yao sulked. Ivan said nothing but merely remained still.

The minutes ticked by rapidly, and still, nobody made a move. Yao was starting to feel hot and humid, for the windows and door were closed and the electrical fan had not been switched on. He could not see any clock in the room, but he knew that the hour was late, for night was falling outside the window and the room was getting dark. Yet he did not dare to move an inch for fear of disturbing the big baby in his lap. Ivan was so quiet and unstirring that Yao was sure that he must have fallen asleep.

How silly of him to fall asleep in such an awkward position. Wouldn't he feel uncomfortable? Yao mused to himself as he absent-mindedly began running his fingers through Ivan's hair. Ivan's hair felt so delicate and soft, a stark contrast to his huge, intimidating physique. Right now, he looked just like a sleeping pet puppy, Yao smiled. No, make that a pet bear.

Yao remembered how when he was a little boy, he would clamber into his mother's lap and listen to her sing him a lullaby and cuddle him to sleep. Subsequently when he was a little older, he would mimic his mother and do the same for Xiang and Wan before their bedtime. Xiang always stared back blankly at him, which rather unnerved him, and only fell asleep when Yao fell silent. Wan, on the other hand, would rudely tell him that his singing gave her nightmares. In retaliation, Yao would raise his volume until Wan cried for their mother to come. Those were the days when he was still too childish to act like the mature big brother that he had always wanted to be. Yao smirked at the memories.

Looking back at the peaceful polar bear snoozing blissfully on his lap, Yao could not help feeling a mixture of gladness and pain. Poor Ivan, how he must have been starved from affection for such a long time! Although Ivan's perverted antics and bullying ways irked him, he would never forget the day when Ivan broke down in front of him and told him how his parents did not love him. And how he had sworn to reform Ivan so that he would one day be able to enjoy the family warmth that Yao was blessed with. He felt awashed with guilt as he recalled how he had instead given Ivan the cold shoulder for the past weeks.

"I'm sorry, Ivan, I'll treat you better from now on aru," Yao bent over and pressed his lips gently against Ivan's head.

Ivan stirred slightly, causing Yao to freeze for fear of waking him up. When Ivan made no further movement, he leaned backwards, settled his hands down by his sides on the mattress and watched Ivan's sleeping form. His long eyelashes and innocent smile gave him the appearance of a sleeping angel.

"You're so cute aru. If only you would be as sweet a person as you look, I would definitely fall in love with you," Yao said aloud.

"Yao..." Ivan murmured.

"Uh... Ivan?" Yao said worriedly, concerned that Ivan had heard his words. "Did I wake you aru? I'm sorry... I..."

"Today's the happiest day of my life da..."

"Uh... huh?" Yao felt startled as Ivan tightened his embrace around his waist.

"Teehee~ The gown suits you very much~"

Yao cringed in disgust as Ivan began drooling onto his pants in his deep slumber.

"I still can't believe that you agreed to marry me da!"


"I will make you happy, I promise da!"


"Let's consummate!"

"Aiya!" Yao exclaimed as he was forcefully tipped backwards into the bed. Before he could react, Ivan was suddenly all over him, his arms locking Yao's to the sides of his body, while his amorous lips pressed kisses all over Yao's appalled face.

"What the hell! Get off me you pervert!" Yao cried, his feeble struggling contained effortlessly by Ivan, who had virtually wrapped his limbs around Yao. Loud rustling sounds of tangling cloth ensued as they rolled around in the bedsheets, Yao trying to roll them off the bed and Ivan trying to make Yao stay still beneath him.

"Don't be shy~ You're my wife, it's only natural that we become one da~"

"Become one your head! I'm not your wife!" Yao cried.

"Mmm... Yao is so tsundere... but that's what I like about you." In his semi-asleep state, Ivan lifted a hand to his own coat to unbutton it in preparation for their 'consummation'.

A loud smack, followed by a smarting pain in one cheek, and Ivan suddenly found himself plunged into darkness, his head reeling from the sudden change in environment. Just moments ago, he was in a brightly lit hotel room, admiring his beloved Yao who looked simply ravishing in a Russian wedding dress. Another loud smack ensued, and both his cheeks were burning up.

"Yao! What...?"

"Get away from me aru!" Something below him gave his chest a hard shove and he rolled over from the impact, his head connecting hard with the wall with a loud thud.

"Ivan Braginski! Do you always have such disgusting dreams aru? Or is this another of your perverted attempts to take advantage of me?" Yao shouted from beside Ivan's bookshelf, where he felt was a safe distance between himself and the bed. Ivan looked up at him in bewilderment. Yao's usually neat shirt was crumpled and tucked out, and his long hair was so disheveled that his hair tie was almost coming undone.

"Aww~ I was dreaming?" Ivan said dejectedly as he rubbed the sore point on his head. "Please don't be mad~ I swear I didn't do that to you on purpose! I must have thought that you were in my dream while the Yao in my dream was real. Our wedding was so realistic. Maybe it's because you're both in my dreams as well as outside my dream so I got all confused if you get what I mean. Ne~ Do you understand me? Actually I don't even know what I'm talking about da."

"Are you sure you're wide awake aru? Shall I splash some ice water over you?" Yao crossed his arms sternly.

"I think I'm wide awake, but my head is spinning and humming," Ivan held out a palm helplessly. Yao inhaled sharply. The tips of his fingers were coated with crimson. Abandoning all malicious thoughts towards Ivan, Yao sprinted towards him.

"You're bleeding!" Yao cupped Ivan's head in his hands, his anxious eyes searching for the source of blood. It did not take him too long to discover a small patch of red at the back of his head that contrasted starkly with his pale blond hair.

"Oh Ivan, you must have hit your head hard aru," Yao cried. "How are you feeling? Can you stand up?"

"I feel very dizzy da, and my head hurts so much," Ivan said as he sagged against Yao.

"Hang in there, I'll get help aru!" Yao tried to help Ivan to lie down, but Ivan held on to his arm.

"No, no, Yao. Don't leave me," Ivan whispered weakly.

"I'm not leaving you," Yao insisted. "I'm getting someone to help me carry you to the school clinic. You're too heavy for me to do that all by myself aru!"

"Promise that you will never leave me da?"

"I won't leave you aru."

"And that you do love me? Because if you don't, you should just leave me for dead as life would be meaningless without your love da," Ivan said sorrowfully.

"Aiya, you're not going to die! And don't say such childish things aru!" Yao cried. "Let me go! You need a doctor quickly or there may be some serious repercussions!" He wrung his hands desperately. The crimson patch on Ivan's hair seemed to be spreading by the minute.

"Not until you say that you love me," Ivan said stubbornly.

"Oh for heaven's sake! Where are your priorities aru?" Yao gave an exasperated sigh.

Eventually, left with no choice by a determined Ivan, who was staring at Yao with an earnest but pained expression in his eyes, Yao conceded defeat.

"All right, I love you, and I don't want you to die, so please let me get someone to help me take you to the doctor. Will that do now aru?"

"I am still your boyfriend da?" Ivan gave him a weak but satisfied smile.

Resisting the urge to correct him for the inappropriate usage of 'still', for he had not regarded him as his boyfriend in the first place, Yao bit his lip and nodded, "Yes aru."

Watching Yao sprint towards the door, Ivan stifled a victorious little chuckle.
