You almost smiled when you saw the name scrawled across the white piece of paper; Cronus Ampora. Honestly, you had no idea why so many people treated him like trash all the time. Yes he was flirtatious, and yes he could sometimes be a complete douche to others, but really, he wasn't that bad at all. In fact, you just happened to be close friends with the sea dweller.
"Who did you *hic* get [Name]?" Roxy asked, trying to sneak a peek at the paper. Cronus stood in the corner of the room, coolly leaning against the wall with an unlit cigarette hanging from his mouth. You just knew he was watching you from the corner if his eye.
"Cronus, it looks like it's you and me~" you chuckled, waving him over. For a second, his cool façade faltered and he stared at you awestruck before clearing his throat and strutting over to you with a smug smirk. All around you people whispered furiously. You scowled mentally, knowing fully well that they were commenting on how you were going to be 'stuck' with Cronus in a closet. Meanwhile you kept a smile on your face, revealing nothing from your true feelings. This was just another reason you hated people sometimes. They always assumed the worst in people and expect them to do horrible things. It was obvious that none of them had taken the time to get to know Cronus like you had.
Admittedly, you had thought that he was just as bad as other people had said. He had flirted you, and yes, touched you, but not in an inappropriate way. Still, you didn't pull away or anything. All he had done was touched your shoulder. When you moved his hand off he seemed a little disappointed, but then jumped right back into a conversation with you. You actually did enjoy the conversation. After your first meeting with him, the two of you talked more and more and eventually became rather close friends. Not to mention that you had fallen for him. Although you would never admit it out loud. It bothered you to no end when he flirted with other people, and even if you did confess to him, you weren't too sure that he would stop flirting with others. This worried you nonstop and held you back from letting the sea dweller know you were interested in becoming Matesprits.
"Thought you'd newver show up kitten. Glad you came in time to play vwith me," Cronus grinned down at you, wrapping an arm around your shoulder while leading you to the closet. This made you give a real smile.
"Seven minutes *hic* is the limit *hic* so no going *hic* longer," Roxy spoke, letting you two in the closet before locking it from the outside.
To your surprise, there was complete silence, and you didn't feel Cronus moving beside you. This was extremely shocking. You figured that he would say some teasing comment at the very least, not silence.
"Cronus...?" you felt for him beside you, your hand reaching out and touching his solid chest. He still said nothing, but instead wrapped his arms around your waist, pulling you closer.
"[Name]," he whispered your name, making you shudder. Why did he have to sound so husky when he whispered?
"W-what?" you cursed mentally for stuttering.
"Can I kiss you?" he asked, almost hesitantly as if he didn't want to scare you away. At this point you weren't sure what to say, so instead you leaned upward and gently pressed your lips against his. You could feel him smiling against your lips as he pulled you even closer against him. It was actually kind of amusing to kiss him.
Cronus was mashing his lips against yours, biting lightly at your bottom lip and then running his tongue over the spot he had just bitten. Originally you'd thought he would be more rough in this kind of situation, but he was treating you like a fragile glass vase, as if you would break at any second. Soon the kiss became deeper with both your tongues tangled as you both fought for dominance. In no time Cronus began to get rougher and rougher, almost forgetting that you were a human and much weaker than a troll. His hands were moving down your body until you stopped him.
"You're not going to touch me," you smirked, a plan forming inside of your head. "I'm going to be the one touching you instead~" you almost purred.
Cronus was very surprised at this. The last thing he expected was for you to take over control, but he couldn't complain. At least the darkness concealed the purple blush forming on his cheeks.
Smirking, you began pulling off his white tank top, tossing it in the corner of the dark closet. Slowly you reached out and pressed your hands against his chest, moving your way down to the grub scars on his side. Curiously, you lightly poked one of them. In turn, Cronus gasped at the sudden touch, shuddering as you began to lightly stroke one of the scars on both his sides. Slowly your hands made their way down to his pants. To your dismay he was wearing a belt. There wasn't enough time for you to get that and his pants off while getting yours off too. If you tried now, that would just end up with the other people finding a naked you and Cronus, getting ready to 'pail' together. Sighing, you pulled away. It wouldn't end well if you continued to tease the sea dweller. Eventually it would just be too much and he would take you, not caring if anybody saw.
"We should probably stop now. The time's almost up," you explained when Cronus gave you a confused look. He nodded slowly, quickly scavenging for his shirt and putting it back on.
"So I take it that you hawve red feelings for me?" Cronus questioned. He wasn't too sure if you had kissed him because you were flushed for him, or if you were doing this just because this game required two people to make out in a closet.
You winced. There was no denying your feelings now.
"Yes," you whispered loud enough for him to hear you. Instantly the sea dweller grinned in delight, picking you up in his arms and kissing you once again.
"At least you finally admitted it. I'm flushed for you too doll~" he rested his forehead against yours.
You could only blush furiously while trying to find the right words for what you needed to say next.
"No you don't understand. I'm not just flushed for you Cronus. I want you to stop flirting with everyone. I want you to be my Matesprit and mine alone," you finally confessed. You hoped that this wouldn't make him reject you. What if he rejected you because he still wanted to end up with Meenah?
"Vwell, if that's what my Matesprit vwants, then I'll stop doing it for you," Cronus brushed a strand of hair from your face before kissing you on the lips again. "Besides, the only person I need is you," he reassured you with a smirk, making you roll your eyes.
"You're so cheesy," you retorted, smiling.
"Time's up!" Roxy burst open the door, making you and Cronus jump in surprise. Finally, your new Matesprit set you down and the two of you exited the closet together.
"So vwould you like to continue at my place~?"
This was definitely going to be a long night.
