[DISTANCE] Persona Trinity Soul (Ryou/Eiko)  
Series: Persona: Trinity Soul
Rating: PG; kissing happens
Even after all these years they kept a 'safe' distance between them. Eventually they need to move forward.

“I don’t think that should be a deciding factor.” Ryou was standing near the couch, looking over a packet of papers vice chief Kubo had brought.

“But since Midorin’s still in the early stages of her career it shouldn’t be too hard to get her to appear.” The older man was sitting on the couch and advocating inviting this specific idol to appear this year.

Ryou thought about this and flipped through the rest of the pages of the packet, “I suppose.”

Kubo smiled, “She’s already volunteered for the event.”

He raised an eyebrow, “Why here?”

“Apparently she lived in the area when she was younger.” He nodded, “I think she’s a good choice.”

“Alright, is most of the paperwork in order?”

The older man nodded as he stood up, “Yep. After all these years it’s pretty easy to remember.”

“I’ll leave it to you,” Ryou said as Kubo headed for the door.

“Planning to leave for lunch?”

He shook his head, “I have other plans.” And with that the other man left the room.

He sat down on the couch, dropping the packet of papers on the table in front. As he leaned back into the couch he sighed, closing his eyes. For a moment the office was completely silent. The only plans he had for lunch was to get ahead on some paper work. But right now he was just sitting silently, the only break he'd get. Soon enough though someone opened the door and stepped inside.

“Good afternoon Ryou,” Eiko said as she closed the door behind herself and walked toward the couch.

Ryou sat up a bit surprised, “What do you need?” Briefly he watched her walk towards him, taking note of what looked like wrapped bentos in one of her hands, he moved to stand up but she put a hand on his shoulder and gently pulled him back. Ryou leaned back against the couch.

“Nothing in particular,” she said from somewhere behind him as she put the item on his desk.

“Didn’t I—“ Before he could finish his sentence she interrupted him, ignoring what he wanted to tell her and moving closer to him.

“Do you have any plans for lunch?” She asked as she leaned forward, resting her head on his shoulder and draping her arms around him.

He tensed as she did this, “No, I was just going to work.” Couldn’t she have guessed that?

Her fingers found his tie and soon after that the very top button of his shirt, “That’s no good,” she said as she undid the button, “You should eat something.”

He took a slow shaky breath, “We’re at—“

“Work,” she finished, turning her head just enough so that he felt the breath from her words on his neck.

‘This behavior is not appropriate for work.’ He wanted to say that but he didn’t, he was silent for a moment and she took the upper hand in the conversation. But Eiko knew that already, didn’t she?

“Besides,” she said as she loosened the knot of his tie, “you work too much.”

His hand reached up to fix the collar of his shirt, regain his composure. “That’s because...” Her hand stopped him, a gentle but firm pressure that made him give up, he also gave up on finishing his sentence. How many times had she interrupted him now?

“Can’t childhood friends share lunch together every once in a while?” Even though she said that he could feel the heat from where her body touched his.

“Why couldn’t they?”

“Because…” she spoke slowly, her lips just barely brushing against him, “a certain someone is always working…”

“There’s a lot th…” His thoughts rushed out of his head when he felt her lips press against his neck. A shock ran through his body that made him wonder about his decisions. “A lot that…” Something told him to object to this but with the next kiss the thought was thrown further from his mind, his eyes slowly closed and he wondered why he wanted to object.

Eiko wondered if she was being too forward, she paused, thinking she’d gone too far and now ready to back off and put that “safe” distance between the two of them again. But she wasn’t sure she wanted that distance anymore. She kissed him on the neck again, still gentle but more like she fully intended it.

They were silent and Eiko moved away from him. Ryou wasn’t sure if he should complain or feel relieved, but he didn’t move and she was thankful for that. She walked around the end of the couch he was sitting on and stood in front of him.

“…Eiko.” His voice was much quieter than its normal volume, he opened his eyes and looked into hers. Something was different in the way she was looking at him now and the same probably applied to how he looked at her. Or maybe that something had been there all along and only now was he noticing.

Without saying anything and still facing him she stepped closer and gently sat down on his lap. He wrapped his arms around her waist and she

They remained together in silence. Ryou thought to ask what she’d come to his office for when their lips were inches apart. When they were finally kissing Eiko was confident that the distance between the two of them was closed, at least a little bit.


Comments: I was actually writing this simultaneously with 'Uniform'. I wound up finishing it first but for some reason never posted it. Heh... Well that's being corrected now~! This is kind of an attempt at fluff, I wonder how I did? What emotions did this evoke?

It's rare to find PTS fics, much less ones for a pairing I dearly love - Ryou/Eiko :o So glad you wrote this and the two other fics! I like how you portrayed Ryou as being hesitant when Eiko made a move on him but eventually succumbed when she gets past his defenses cause that's exactly how I view his character as; cold on the outside but warm and gentle on the inside ^^

Don't suppose you could write more fluff/romance Ryou/Eiko? :3
