Summary: Late one evening, Fai gets a digital recording of Kurogane that he vows to keep save.
Disclaimer: I don't own.

Fai had been sleeping quite comfortable when an unfamiliar noise from another room woke him up. He tried to ignore the noise at first, burying his head into the pillow to block out the muffled sound, and go back to sleep. Unfortunately, he could still hear it, and his curiosity had been roused. He knew for certain he had never heard that noise before. He groggily sat up and stretched his arms above his head. The noise was pleasing to his ears, though he still had no idea where it was coming from.

Eventually, he realized the bathroom door was not fully closed and that the noise was coming from inside. Fai decided it was not a sound he was used to hearing from a bathroom. Even more curious, he made his way silently to the door and pressed himself against the wall, listening. He heard a splash of water and more of the sound that woke him up. A few seconds later, he realized the unfamiliar sound he had heard was the sound of someone humming in the bathtub.

He looked around the unkempt bedroom and spotted his labcoat strewn across the foot of the bed. Trying not to alert the bather to his presence, he made his way carefully to his jacket and fished around in his pockets for the digital recorder he used to record his lectures. Sneaking back over to the door, he held the machine up to the crack and pressed the record button. He had never heard that sound before and he doubted he would ever be able to hear it again. After two minutes, he decided not to push his luck any further and stopped recording.

“Now I can hear Kuro-tan-sensei’s happiness whenever I want.” Fai put the recorder back into his pocket and started searching around for the rest of his clothes, the main difference between his and Kurogane’s being size. He knew Kurogane enjoyed being with him or else the gym teacher would not have allowed these late night visits to continue. Still, Kurogane was quite lousy at sharing his feelings of happiness, which was why Fai had every intention of cherishing that moment. Well, as far as he was concerned, Kurogane had every right to be pleased with himself at the moment.

He finally managed to pull all of his clothes on and went quietly out the front door, knowing no matter how happy the gym teacher might currently be, he would prefer things this way. Kurogane was very adamant about the students not finding out about their relationship. So, after the nights he and Kurogane would have sex, he would slip out of Kurogane’s apartment in the middle of the night and walk or limp back to his own apartment complex because the students were not allowed out at that time of night.

“Sakura-chan, Himawari-chan.” He froze right outside the door to the apartment building, staring at the two girls who were most likely mirroring his own horrified expression. “What are you two doing out here?”

“We were stargazing with Syaoran-kun, Doumeki-kun, and Watanuki-kun,” Himawari admitted. Technically, he should have been punishing all of them for being out so late.

“Why is your hair so messy?” Sakura asked him innocently, and he felt a brief moment of panic. “Isn’t this where Kurogane-sensei lives?” Curse those students for being so perceptive.

“I went over after school to help Kuro-sama-sensei rearrange some furniture, then I accidentally fell asleep on his couch.” He could tell the girls did not believe him. “Look, I won’t tell anyone you’re breaking curfew if you won’t tell anyone I was at Kuro-pyon-sensei’s apartment.”

They both nodded. “Agreed.” He shook hands with both of them before parting ways with them to make his way slowly back to his apartment.

After the two girls would no longer be able to hear him, he pulled out the digital recorder out of his pocket and played back the sounds of Kurogane’s humming. “At least I have proof that Kuro-sama is happy, even if he doesn’t want to share that happiness with the rest of the world.”
