~The Moment of a Couple~

A group of children ran past you laughing at each other as they gave chase around the park. You couldn't help but give a little smile at their innocence and free will. They seemed so happy. By now, your legs had grown uncomfortable of trying to support yourself on one side of the seesaw. There wasn't anyone on the other side so if your legs gave way, your entire body would fall towards the ground.

"What are you doing out here by yourself?" a voice asked from behind. You immediately whipped your head around and found yourself staring at a familiar face. It wasn't hard to recognize your colleague from your Statics class. Aside having a loud voice, his wild blonde hair and smiling face was easily recognizable in a filled lecture hall.

"I-I-I…" you stammered.

"Hey, aren't you the girl in my Statics class?"  

You swallowed a lump in your throat and immediately brought your eyes to the floor. You didn't even talk in class! In fact, you sat all the way in the back so how could someone as loud as this person recognize you?!

"Y-Yeah, I'm in your class," you replied in a timid voice.

"I knew it!" your colleague laughed. "For a second I was afraid I might've been wrong. You don't talk very much, you know?"

"Th-There's nothing for me to say…" you replied feeling your face grow hot. At this point, you were afraid that if you looked into his eyes again, you wouldn't be able to keep yourself composed. At least you remembered his name.

Mathias Køhler. He was a troublesome type of student. He would go out with his upperclassmen friends and boast about getting drunk and wasted. He was the party type of person. You didn't even know what he was doing in a statics class. From the sound of things, it didn't even seem like he was smart.

...But he was handsome. He had the bluest set of eyes you had ever seen, and you found something intriguing about the way he would always put on a bright smile in front of his friends and laugh at the drop of a hat. Try as you might, you couldn't bring yourself to dislike the guy.

"So what're you doing on a seesaw all by yourself?" Mathias asked. Your eyes were still directed towards the ground, but you were sure he was looking straight at you. Mathias Køhler was looking at you.

"I'm just trying to give my head some room to think," you replied in a quiet voice. Perhaps he couldn't even hear you.

"Oh, I see what you mean," Mathias laughed. "I get those days, too. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all, huh?" You heard him make a noise that sounded like he was stretching. Curious, you stole a peek at his body. Even with his skin being covered with a light sweater, you could see his hard muscles that were perfectly formed on his tall body.

Unfortunately, Mathias caught you in the act.

"Like what you see?" he grinned.

"Huh? I—No! I—!" Feeling embarrassed, you immediately brought your head to the ground trying to hide your face that was flushing a bright crimson read.

"It's okay if you feel that way," Mathias chuckled. "I don't mind getting the attention."

He's so full of himself! you thought trying to straighten your face into a neutral expression.

"Mind if I join you?" your colleague suddenly asked.

You looked up. "Um, I…" Before you could finish, Mathias had already sat himself down on the opposite side of the seesaw. He must've had little shame in his acts if he could do something so openly. At least your legs didn't hurt anymore.

"It's not fun playing by yourself," he smiled from across the other side. "This thing only works with two people."

"Y-Yeah…" you stammered.

Mathias raised a bemused eyebrow and crossed his arms over the handles of the seesaw.

"You really don't like to talk, do you?"

Upon hearing his question, you pressed your lips together and looked down. "There's really nothing for me to say."

"Is that so…?" your colleague mumbled. "Then how about I give you something to say? What's your name?"

"_____________," you answered.

"_____________..." Mathias repeated. "Nice name. I'm Mathias."

"I know," you replied immediately regretting speaking out.

"Oh, so you do pay attention to me!" Mathias burst out laughing.

"I-I never said I didn't!" you protested in a wavering voice.

"You're blushing~" Mathias teased. That only made you blush even more. The jerk.

"I'm leaving," you frowned and proceeded to get off, but your body lurched upwards as Mathias put his full weight on his end of the seesaw leaving you suspended in the air.

"Like I'd let you get away that easily," Mathias laughed. "Come on. Let's talk to each other. I want to know about you."

At that moment, you felt something strange in your chest like your stomach was becoming tied in knots and your lungs were about to burst.

"Wh-Why would someone like you want to know about someone like me?" you asked.

"Because you seem interesting," Mathias simply replied. "Come on. Just for a little? I'm not going to let you down until you do."

This guy's so mean!

"Fine…" you sighed. "What do you want to know?"

-----

"Hey, _____________," Mathias patted your shoulder when class was over. "Do you think you could do me a favor?"

You blinked. "Why would you ask me to do you a favor? Don't you have a lot of friends?"

"Yeah, but this is different," Mathias chuckled scratching the back of his head sheepishly. "You see my grades are slipping. I figured since you're smart, but not everyone knows you, it'd be okay to ask you for help so no one would know."

"Maybe if you didn't go out drinking all of the time, you wouldn't be in this situation," you pointed out.

"That's cold, ____________," your colleague whined.

"I didn't mean to be!" you insisted. "It just came out that way!"

"You're so funny, ______________," Mathias laughed. "That's what I like about you."

"Eh?" you blushed and bowed your head to the floor.

"How am I going to convince you to tutor me…?" Mathis was the type of person who preferred to think out loud. "I know! How about this, ___________? If you can help me get an A in the class, I'll take you on a date!"

You began to walk faster to the beat of your thumping heart. "What makes you think I'd want to go on a date with you?"

"Every girl does!" Mathias answered obnoxiously. "But they're just in it for my looks. I know you're different, _____________. You know me for who I am."

"I…" You hesitated. Mathias was partially wrong there. You were attracted to Mathias because of his appearance, too, but it was true that you knew what sort of person he was. And when one looked past the loud-mouthed heavy-drinker, Mathias could be a really sweet guy.

"Fine, I'll help you," you sighed.

"Awesome!" Mathias grinned. "Thanks, ___________!" You rolled your eyes and were about to go on your way when a hand grabbed onto your cheek and pulled you in for a kiss.

"Later, __________!" Mathias waved and parted ways to his next class.

"H-Huh…?" you stammered and felt your cheek where Mathias had kissed you. It wasn't a dream. It was real.

"Goodbye, Mathias…" you whispered. You were going to have to do something about the color on your face in case someone noticed you blushing like an idiot.

-----

"Do we really have to study here?" you asked looking at the playground where you first spoke with Mathias.

"Well, the library's closed because of that one water pipe leak, and you said your landlady doesn't like visitors popping into your apartment," Mathias shrugged. "Unless…you want to go to my apartment…"

"N-No, this is fine!" you said quickly.

"Okay," Mathias chuckled.

Frowning, you got out your statics book and tapped the cover. "So what topics are you having trouble on?"

"Mostly moments," Mathias said. "The statics one—not the life kind of moments. You know? The one that're like torques, but they aren't?"

"I know what you mean," you giggled. "So what exactly do you want me to talk about?"

"Just the basics mechanics of how they work," Mathias answered casually.

"Okay…Let's see…" You began flipping through your textbook to the chapter discussing moments. Then, you thought of a good example.

"Mathias, I have a good way to start it off," you said pointing to the seesaw. "You see that system over there?"

"The seesaw?"

You nodded. "If we sit on it, we can make a good example of a moment of a couple."

"Oh, I see what you mean!" Mathias grinned and grabbed your hand.

"Wh-What are you—"

"You said it's a moment of a couple, right?" your colleague laughed. "Then let's hop on!"

"That's not what I meant, Mathias!" you squeaked when Mathias plopping you down on one end and sat himself down on the other side.

"Look, ____________! We're a couple!" Mathias laughed.

"W-We're not!" you blushed and covered your face with your textbook. "You're joking, right?"

"I don't want you to think I am…" Mathias mumbled in an unusually soft voice causing you to peak over your textbook.

"Huh?"

"N-Nothing," Mathias smiled. "Let's just get to work on the moments."

"Actually, now that I think about it, you're right about this being a moment of a couple," you giggled as Mathias bobbed the seesaw up and down.

Mathias looked up. "Really?"

"Uh-huh. When there are two equal but opposing forces acting parallel to a center point, we get a cancellation of forces*."

"But we're still moving," Mathias pointed out.

"That's right," you smiled. "That's because the resulting moment isn't at zero. There's something going on."

"There definitely is," Mathias chuckled with an unreadable grin.

"Uh-huh," you chuckled.

"I wasn't talking about that…" your colleague frowned disappointedly.

"What?" You tilted your head to the side and stared into Mathias' bright blue eyes. He's talking about statics, right?

"I was talking about this, ____________," Mathias said pointing to you and the seesaw. "This? As in what's happening right now?"

"It's a moment of a couple," you replied not fully understanding what Mathias was talking about. "There are two equal but opposite forces occurring whenever you push upwards, right?"

"You're so cute, ____________," Mathias laughed and leapt off the seesaw sending you hurling towards the ground.

"Eek!" you cried out when your bottom smashed against the hard plastic of the seesaw and flew backwards onto the ground. "Mathias! That was—"

But you never got to finish. Before you realized it, Mathias was already over you with his hands digging through your hair and his eyes closed as he moved his lips over yours molding them into the perfect shape of a kiss.

"Mm…!" you squealed and shoved Mathias off of you so you could sit up straight. "Mathias what was that?!"

"It was a kiss," Mathias smirked looking bemused at how you actually pushed him away.

"Th-That's not what I meant!" you groaned and covered your lips. "Why would you kiss me?"

"Because you're cute and smart and fun~" Mathias answered with his smile still plastered on his face.

"You're so mean!" you shouted feeling your face flush with blood. "I didn't expect that! You caught me off guard!"

"Oh, so you didn't want me to kiss you…?" Mathias lowered his head in rejection.

"N-No, I didn't mean it like that, Mathias," you babbled like a flustered idiot. "I just didn't think you were going to do that with me or—"

"Ah-ha! So you did want me to kiss you!"

"Y-You!" you growled. "That's not fair! Do you want me to tutor you or not?!"

"Do you want to go on a date with me still?" Mathias countered with his own question.

You swallowed. You liked that kiss. You liked being with Mathias. He was different around you. In fact, you probably even liked him nearly to the point of…

"____________?"

"Huh?" You jerked your head up when Mathias called you back to your senses.

"Are you going to answer my question?"

"Uh…" You hesitated. If you said "yes," then that would fuel Mathias' ego, but if you said know, he might have become upset at you. You didn't want him to fee upset towards you.

"Answer my question first," you demanded.

This time, Mathias was the one who looked shocked. "You're not so much of a pushover like I thought you'd be," he chuckled. "But if you're wondering, then, yeah, I want to be tutored by you. I can't focus when it's just some old guy reading straight out of the book, you know? Being outdoors is nicer."

You nodded in agreement. "Should we continue, then?"

"Sure!" Mathias grinned. You sighed with relief. He had already forgotten the question he was going to ask you.

-----

You were at your apartment when you heard your cellphone ring. It could have only been from three callers: your parents…or Mathias. When you picked up your phone, you immediately recognized the caller I.D. straight away. Even when you picked up the phone and answered it, you were wearing a goofy smile on your face.

"Hello?"

"______________!" a loud and excited voice cried from the speaker. "Guess who gets to go on a date with me?!"

-----

"You sure you didn't want to go anywhere else?" Mathias asked for what seemed like the twelfth time since meeting up with him at the entrance of the park.

"I'm sure," you said. "I don't like parties, and I don't like going to the movies. It's nice and quiet here, don't you think?"

"I guess you're right…" Mathias chuckled and wrapped his arm around your shoulder. Now the two of you were like a real couple though you never wanted to admit it to anyone. Knowing that Mathias knew was enough.

"Hey, ____________, thanks for everything," Mathias suddenly said.

"You're welcome," you smiled and leaned your head against his chest. "To tell you the truth, I was afraid you weren't going to be able to go on this date with me."

"Aw, you thought I was going to fail the final?!" Mathias pouted. "After the amazing tutoring you gave me? I don't think so!"

"No, not that," you laughed. "You're smart when you need to be. It's just that I was afraid you were lying to me about going on a date with me."

"Why would I do something like that?"

You shrugged. "I'm nothing special. I'm not very pretty and I'm not popular like you are. I'm not into a lot of things the normal girls are."

"So?"

You stopped and looked into Mathias' eyes. You were used to doing that without blushing now, but they were still lovely to look at.

"What?"

"So what if you're not like the others?" Mathias shrugged. "I like you that way."

"M-Mathias…"

You watched as your date shifted nervously in place. "Listen, ___________? There's something I've been meaning to tell you."

"Yes?" Is he going to…?

Mathias lowered his head to the point where you couldn't see his facial expression. Then, he took a deep breath and went back to your eyes.

"After the holidays, I'm going to be attending a different university."

Your heart stopped. That couldn't be true. That just couldn't. So many emotions were swimming around in your head. So many questions. Reality hit you like a train…and it couldn't have been a worse time. You had even gone towards that stage where you had started to…

"I'm sorry, __________," Mathias mumbled. "I didn't think I was going to be able to, but my parents said it's better for my future if I go to a different university. I should've told you sooner, but I didn't want you to be sad."

"Sad?" your voice wavered. You were shocked at how weak you sounded. "I'm not sad…"

Mathias furrowed his eyebrows. For once, he didn't look like he was going to be smiling anytime soon.

"You're not…?"

"No…" Your hands felt like weak noodles. They were shaking uncontrollably in place like the rest of your body.

"Mathias, you're stupid, you know that?"

"__-___________..." Mathias breathed.

Unable to control your emotions, you threw him a hard look and began to push him off of you.

"You're an idiot! Do you think telling me now would have made things better?!" You could hear the shrill cry in your voice, but you no longer cared. Your eyes began to grow hot and wet until you could barely make out Mathias' messy blonde hair and sad blue eyes through your tears.

"If I had known, I would have said so much more! I would have done so much more with you! You think you can honestly just drop this sort of bomb on me and not expect me to feel anything?!"

"__________, I didn't know what to do!" Mathias protested in a creaking voice. "This is the first time I've felt like this towards anyone! I didn't…Oh, __________, don't cry…"

"I'm not…" you sniffed. There was no point in lying anymore. You couldn't hide it. "Mathias, I love you…I don't want you to leave."

"_____________..." Suddenly, you felt a pair of warm hands wrap around your neck and pull you forward. You could feel Mathias' hot breath warming up your cheeks and growing subtly louder and closer until it vanished between your lips.

"I love you, too, ____________," Mathias whispered holding you close to his chest until you could hear the faint sound of his heart beating.

Then, you felt something wet and cold sting your cheek. It couldn't have been a tear…When you looked up, you saw a gentle drift of snow begin to fall from the overcast sky.

"It's snowing…" you breathed watching your breath come out in foggy wisps.

"Yeah," Mathias chuckled. "You want to go to my place? I don't want you to catch a cold before the holidays."

"Mmm…If that's alright with you," you answered, your cheeks flushing red—and not because of the cold.

"Let's go, then," your date smiled softly and kissed some of your remaining tears away before leading you out of the park.

-----

The walk to Mathias' apartment was filled with the two of you talking about little things like what you had planned to do when you went on winter break. You noticed Mathias was careful to not bring up the point about transferring. He already felt that he had made you feel sad enough already.

For the most part, Mathias' apartment was a simple, cozy place—it was too small for parties or even large groups of visitors. Since it was already getting dark, Mathias offered to let you stay over for the night.

"You can make yourself comfortable on the couch," Mathias said while going into his kitchen. "I'll get us something to drink."

"As long as it isn't alcohol," you added with a slight laugh.

"Alright, ___________," Mathias chuckled. After something preparations, he came back with two cups of hot drinks and joined you on the edge of the sofa sipping your beverages in silence. When the two of you were done, you set your cup aside and placed your head on Mathias' shoulder.

"Mathias…do you think after this, we'll see each other again?" you asked softly.

Mathias didn't answer you at first like he was lost in deep thought. The entire apartment was silent save for the low hum of the refrigerator running in the background.

"I have a feeling we will," Mathias finally answered wrapping his hand around your shoulder. "After all, I love you, __________."

Hearing those words come from him made your chest flood with a warm glow. Disregarding your scarlet-red cheeks, you turned your head so Mathias could pull you in for a kiss, his lips warm, his touch indescribably tender.

"I love you, too, Mathias," you whispered as you gasped for breath as soon as you felt Mathias gain dominance over your meek body.

"I know," Mathias chuckled nuzzling your hair with his nose causing you to shudder.

"Can we just…stay like this a little longer?" you asked in a hushed voice. "Just for tonight…?"

Mathias kissed you on your forehead and let out a long exhale cooling your skin with his aromatic breath.

"Sure, ____________," he chuckled. "We can stay like this."

"Thank you," you smiled and closed your eyes with your body embraced in his warmth. It was definitely a moment you wanted to remember—even if it wouldn't last forever.

-----

A group of children ran past you laughing at each other as they gave chase around the park. You couldn't help but give a little smile at their innocence and free will. They seemed so happy. By now, your legs had grown uncomfortable of trying to support yourself on one side of the seesaw. There wasn't anyone on the other side so if your legs gave way, your entire body would fall towards the ground.

"What are you doing out here by yourself?" a voice asked from behind. You immediately whipped your head around and found yourself staring at a familiar face. It wasn't hard to recognize your old colleague from your Statics class. Aside having a loud voice, his wild blonde hair and smiling face was easily recognizable in any given public place.  

A smile escaped your lips. "Maybe I just needed a moment to myself," you answered enigmatically.

The wild-haired Dane laughed and sat at the other end of the seesaw. Your legs didn't hurt anymore.

"So you've graduated, too, ______________?"

"Yeah," you chuckled. "I've missed you, Mathias."

"I've missed you, too, ___________," Mathias replied with a bright smile.

"So what are you doing over here without even calling me, huh?" you asked.

"Important things," Mathias tried to answer in a casual tone, but you could hear a wavering note in his voice.

You narrowed your eyes. "Mathias Køhler…? Is there something you're not telling me?"

"Maybe…" Mathias grinned. All of a sudden, he yelped in surprise when you sat all the way at the edge of the seesaw and smashed your end into the ground casing him to be suspended in the air.

"__-___________!" he whined. "Okay, okay! I'll tell you if you let me down!"

"I think you can tell me from there," you giggled. He still hadn't changed after all of this time. Mathias was still Mathias.

"Fine," Mathias sighed and carefully reached into his pocket without losing his balance. When you squinted your eyes, you saw that the object Mathias had taken out looked like a small velvet box—the kind only used for—

"Mathias!" you cried and released the seesaw and began to bolt to the other side.

"Crap!" Mathias yelled as he came hurling down to Earth and falling backwards off the seesaw and onto the ground.

"Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, Mathias…" you groaned and bent down to examine the fallen Dane. "Mathias…? Mathias, are you alright?"

You breathed in relief when you saw Mathias let out a low groan and opened his eyes.

"That could've gone better…" he mumbled with a weak smile. Then, you watched with your eyes glued on his hands as he held out the velvet box and opened it. There, in the middle of a plush cushion, was a brilliant, lustrous ring that shone as brightly as Mathias' smile.

"____________," Mathias began, "this is the first place we've met. Sure we've had our rocky moments, and we haven't really seen each other much since I left, but it would make me the happiest man it the world if you will marry me. What do you say?"

"Yes…" you whispered behind your cupped hands. "Yes, I will. I love you…"

Mathias cracked a smile and got up to give you a kiss and put the ring around your finger. "I love you, too, __________," he replied. "So what do you think? Is this a good example of a moment of a couple?"

"Not in the statics sense, right?" you laughed.

"No," Mathias joined in with your laughter. "The relationship kind."

"Definitely," you smiled and threw yourself onto your fiancé. From a distance, you could see the children watching the two of you laughing and kissing each other with curious eyes. The moment couldn't have been more genuine—it was, without a doubt, the perfect moment of a couple.
Well, this was taken down because it used to be a lemon so I edited some of it so it wouldn't violate any policies.

At least my lemons had plots so all I had to do was cut out the XXX. It's not the same, though. Feels slightly cliché.

If you'd like to read the lemon version of this story, you can note me your email. 

*Terrible description of a moment. It might not make sense unless you take physics or statics, but if not, chances are, you'll never hear about the term in your life.
