[fic] Reach for Me

Title: Reach for Me
Author: absolutehymn007
Claim: Prince of Tennis - General
Table: Buffet - 50 Prompts
Prompt: #2 Look Beyond
Rating: PG
Pairing: Sanada x Yukimura
Word Count: 241
Summary: Sanada visits someone's garden at night. Without permission.
Warnings: None
Notes: Something short and sweet... with the feelings of longing and loneliness.


The rose was lush, graceful, intelligent - a true beauty amongst the rest of the flowers. Sanada inhaled deeply, taking in the scent of the rose. It was warm and inviting - like a fireplace that he would want to sit by during a chilly winter's night. The scent filled his whole being like he had never been completely satisfied before. It brought out flames of passion that did not want to be contained within him. He could never get enough of the scent or of looking at its magnificence...

He no longer wanted to feel as incomplete as he did before stumbling upon this intoxicating rose. So every so often, he found himself in someone's private garden, picking a rose out to take home to replace the one that had sadly faded away. Something that surreal and wonderful had to come with a painful price… he was never able to pick the rose without being pierced by sharp thorns.

Little did he know that every night he was there, in that quaint serene garden highlighted by silver moonlight, lurked Yukimura in the shadows. If only he had looked further, he would have seen that there was a ever-lasting rose that was more perfect than the others without thorns that wanted to be taken home and cherished. He wanted to reach out to him, but he was afraid, and the other person sadly lacked the courage to reach out to him.

I think... I missed something. I mean, does this one have some kind of hide meaning? Besides that feeling I had I need to say I liked this one very much ^^
I still feel a little weird imagining Sanada smelling roses (he looks so japanese-ish for me) but since Yukimura is a rose-ish character and he likes Yukimura that much, then it makes sense, ne? :3

This is one of two drabbles I've written. It's metaphoric thought (and it kind of comes back in my giant multi-chapter PoT/Fire Emblem story).

Sanada kept sneaking into Yukimura's garden and taking a rose home with him because smelling them made him feel good and complete. The thorns hurting him was symbolic of the fact that what he kept taking wasn't the most perfect thing for him and that it came at a price. I think I was just pondering how Sanada didn't see that Yukimura had feelings for him because he wasn't looking hard enough for something better. And Yukimura was also scared to approach him about his own feelings, leaving them both going nowhere.

Err... if that makes any sense. This was written around the time where I was contemplating the dynamics of Sanada and Yukimura's relationship because I had plans to write an Alpha Pair multi-chapter fic at some point in the future.
