Chapter Text

            Gackt walked through the ball room looking for his missing lover, feeling like the happiest man in the world. He had it all; money, looks and a beautiful man to call his own. He had friends and family who loved him and supported his choices, and a career to be proud off. Sometimes his friends asked him how he had so much but all he could answer was that it was a combination of hard work, determination and in the case of his looks, DNA.

            Yoshiki was no different to him, they worked hard and had achieved everything they wanted because of it. He was the golden sun to Gackt's silver moon and they fit together to form a perfect circle of strength and love. Far greater together than alone, just like a good couple should be.

            “Yoshiki?” Gackt called, as he pushed open the doors to the balcony where he found Yoshiki standing alone, staring out into the night with a wishful gaze.

            “Gackt, tell me, what do you do when you have everything?” Yoshiki asked.

            “You find something you don't have. Humans always want more.” Gackt replied, wrapping an arm around Yoshiki and smiling when he felt his lover do the same.

            “But what don't I have?” Yoshiki asked. “The only thing I can think of is kids.”

            “Why would you want children?” Gackt asked. “Messing up your things, brining dirt into your home. Waking us up at night. We couldn't have sex anywhere in the house with kids wandering around.”

            “Perhaps,” Yoshiki replied. “But my life feels empty. Like I’ve achieved everything and now what?”

            “You need to set a goal, or a target. Learn a new skill.” Gackt suggested.

            “I want to see more of the world. I want to travel,” Yoshiki explained. “Can we do that? Take a whole year out and just see the world?”

            “A whole year?” Gackt asked startled.

            “Please Gaku. I need to do this and I don't want to be on my own,” Yoshiki complained.

 “Are you sure this is what you need to be happy?” Gackt asked.

            “I'm sure,” Yoshiki replied. “I want to visit so many places but it'll only be worthwhile with you by my side.”

            “Then let's do it,” Gackt agreed. “I'll take a year out to be with you. To have fun and learn new things but you need to promise me something.”

            “Go on.” Yoshiki agreed, wondering what Gackt's price would be.

            “You're not to run away with some sexy French man who feeds you cheese. You're not allowed to find a crazy American to take you on a wild wide. You're not to find an Italian who works as a professional chef. In short, you're not to leave me for anybody, no matter how glamorous their life style might seem.”

            “You feed me cheese, you're as crazy as they come and OK you can't cook but you're pretty and know how to please a man in the bedroom so I’ll let that one slide.” Yoshiki replied and grinning Gackt pulled his lover around so that they could kiss long and hard, knowing that their love was true and would always exist as long as they both lived. Some things simply were eternal.
