Eri is still so angry, but can I hope for some Gakishige?

Ok, ok... Everything can happen... :twisted:

Thanks! :P

That's ouches Trey-trey  :shocked
Basketball? or you did what Ai did?  :P

XD Basketball?? Nope, but near by that... Actually, it was ice-hockey... And I've got a bad wrist ever since I was ten, after it broke up for the first time in a match... So this is pretty usual for me, no need to worry :P

“Ten moths ago?” The younger asked with a devious smirk.

Ohhhhhhh, so taking revenge for the burette thing, aren't you?? XD I seriously have a problem with that... It's the same mistake that I made in a english exam last year... I remember it because the teacher tried to strangle me because of that XD

or you did what Ai did? :P
- Did you? I wanted to ask that too~

Nope, I know that if I do that with my left hand I'll not be able to write, and if I do it with the right I know I'll broke up my wrist... XD So if I'm pissed off I kick a wall, I don't give it a punch... :P

*Throw Durian shell (do you know what this is? XD) at Maki*

Durian shell????? *tries to remember the boring botanic classes that I was obliged to take...* Erm... I don't know... I think it's a fruit of a tree that doesn't exist here in Europe... But I'm not sure. Bah, my speciality is the chemistry, not the biology... XD

CHAPTER 12

“Ai-chan!” Risa yelled to her friend. “Where were you yesterday…?”

“At home…” The older replied coldly, without looking at her companion.

“Um… I see… Were you ill?” Risa asked, in order to start a conversation with Ai, since she wanted to clear up the things with her after their argument.

“No.” Ai replied simply.

“So… then… why didn’t you come?”

“Risa… don’t start again…” The older begged, as her hostile attitude grew bigger and bigger.

“What do you mean?”

“Don’t you remember what I told you about my privacy?!” Ai asked even more hostile, trying to intimidate Risa, probably to stop her from making more questions.

“Hey, hey, hey…” The younger said, poking her friend’s shoulder. “I was just asking you why you weren’t here yesterday! There’s no need to put the defensive mood on…!” She stated to calm her obviously irritated leader down.

“…” Ai stood there observing Risa, like if she was thinking about something.

“Why are you looking at me like that…?”

“Oh… it’s nothing…”

“Ai-chan! Your manager wants to talk with you…!” Eri shouted, as she entered in the room.

“Oh, ok…” She said, and led towards where her manager was.

Risa stood there, looking how her leader ran, slightly irritated because of Ai’s childish reactions.

“Ummm…” Eri hummed when she considered that Ai was far away enough to not hear. “You’ve fixed your problem…?”

“What a stupid question Kame!” Risa exclaimed. “No, of course not. She’s in a weird state… in which I just can’t talk with her…”

“What are you talking about?”

“She’s just acting all hostile, and all angry…” She replied. “I don’t know why is she doing this…? I know her too well to tell that she isn’t herself…”

“Hmm, I don’t know… I guess she’s hiding something…” Eri guessed taking a long pause. “It must be something huge…”

“Yeah…” Risa agreed as she sat on a table. “But what is it?”

“You’re asking me? What the hell… I don’t know…”

“Yes, sorry…” Risa replied laughing lightly.

***

“Takahashi-san. What were you doing yesterday?”

“I was at…” Ai muttered trying to find a good excuse. “At… home…”

“At home?” Her manager asked, half irritated and half amused. “Well, I guess that’s pretty obvious… If you weren’t at home, it would be worst, don’t you think…?”

“Yes.” Ai replied quickly.

“So then… What were you doing at home?” The middle aged woman asked again, this time in a gentler tone.

“Rest.” The leader replied simply.

“I see… But can you be a little bit more specific? I mean, were you just resting…?!”

“Yes.”

“Takahashi, could you, please, answer me with more than a word…?” The manager asked, loosing the little patience that she learned to show to the forgetful and oblivious leader.

“I was resting… There’s nothing more to be said.” Ai replied with a smirk.

“Ai, listen, I understand that you were tired. But if you couldn’t come, you could at least say it before and explain why you weren’t going to come.” The woman stated.

“I know, sorry.”

“I know that you’re aware of that, Takahashi, and you’re the leader…” She took a pause before continuing. “I shouldn’t be remaining you this kind of things…”

“…” Ai stood there with a blank expression. It was pretty obvious that she wasn’t listening at all to her manager.

“Do you get what I mean?”

“…”

“Takahashi…?” The manager called her, waving in front of Ai’s eyes, trying to make her come back.

“Yes.” She replied quickly again. “May I go now…?”

“Sure.” And Ai wasted no time in disappear of the room.

“What I’m going to do with this girl…?”

***

“Tanaka-san! Feeling better? You had me worried…”

“Yeah, Jun, I’m fine.” Reina replied cheerfully. “I’ve already told you that I’m bad at avoiding the catch of colds…”

“I see.” JunJun replied laughing. “The rehearsal was cancelled, you know that?”

“No… Am I that important?” The shorter asked smirking, earning a muffled laugh from her friend.

“Of course you aren’t. Takahashi-san is the important one.”

“And that means…” Reina tried to understand what JunJun was saying.

“That she didn’t come neither.” Jun replied simply.

“Ai-chan didn’t come?!”

“No.”

“Weird…”

“Indeed…”

“Hey. What are you doing?” LinLin asked approaching her mates.

“Talking about Takahashi-san’s disappearance yesterday.” Jun replied.

“Yeah, do you know something Lin?”

“No, what can I know…? I’m a mere kouhai here…” The youngest of the three of them replied dramatically.

“Yes.” JunJun agreed laughing. “But let’s be serious for a moment, don’t you think that she’s acting weird lately?”

“We’re talking about Ai-chan.” Reina replied. “She is always weird.”

“Yes. But haven’t you seen that she’s weirder… Much more… She doesn’t even talk with Niigaki-san!”

“Yeah! I’ve noticed that too…” LinLin stated. “And that is weirder than the usual Takahashi-san.”

“Hmmm. You know, she was in Maki’s apartment the other day…” The shortest said. “I’ll ask her if she knows what's wrong with Ai…”

“You’ve talked with her?! After what I told to you?!” Eri asked scandalized.

Somehow I pictured a red faced and fuming Eri in this scene. It’s a little scary but still very cute. *Sigh* Can Eri even not be cute? :wub:

Quote
“Yeah.” Maki cut her off, as she plopped down into the bed. “I’ll stay here… With you…”

Does this mean Maki has made her decision?

Brrrrr, Ai is sooooo cold to poor Risa. But poor Kame is even more pitiful. Getting yelled at when she was just trying to be nice.

Well, it's been hard for me to write these past hours... The horrible news about Maki are making me the things difficult to write about her... And, apart from that, these kind of news always brought up memories to everyone... That kind of memories that the people like me prefer to bury...

I'm very sensitive when it comes to these subjects...

CHAPTER 13

Maki looked at her mobile’s screen stunned, lost in terror. The message that Reina had sent to her was making her feel nervous about several things.

“Ya know what’s up with Ai-chan, right?” It was kinda impressive to see how such a short question could make the soloist so extremely scared, in fact, she throw the mobile at the couch as if it had a type of contagious illness.

“Ok, Maki, think…” Maki said to herself aloud, and started to walk along the rest room. “She’s just asking if I know what’s wrong with Takahashi, this doesn’t mean that she has discovered my story with Rika… Nor that this crazy girl has insinuated her anything about it…” She suddenly stopped her march. “But if she doesn’t know or suspect anything… Why the hell is she asking this to me…?!”

Suddenly, she grabbed her mobile and started to type a response.

“What do you mean? Has she said something to you?”

She was about to send it, but stopped when her logical intelligence started to work again.

“Wait a minute… If I respond her with a question like “has she said something to you?” she will be the one who will start to make questions…” She retorted to herself quietly. “She’ll ask why I’m asking that… And that’s the last thing I want…” She removed the un-send message quickly.

Maki tried it again…

“She seemed normal these past days…”

… But she had to remove the message once again.

“No… This isn’t the best I can say… Because Reina doesn’t know how many times we have seen each other lately…” She thought. “And if I say something like this she’ll ask if I’ve seen her more than once… Since she thinks that I’ve only seen Ai the other day, when she caught us talking in my apartment… And then, she’ll ask why we have seen each other so much… And I don’t want that either…”

Third try…

“She seemed normal the other day…”

At first sight it looked a good response, but Maki didn’t think that way, and removed this message too.

“No good… I know Reina too well… And she didn’t ask anything about Takahashi’s visit last time ‘cause she fell ill… If I tell her this she’ll remember it and will start to make questions…” The soloist whimed, and plopped onto the couch where she had threw the mobile earlier. “Damn, Goto, think… A bad movement in the love’s game and you can end up in a badly… Shit…”

And then, she received a message.

“Oh, no… Reina again?!” She looked at the screen quickly, and calmed down a little when she saw who had texted her.

“I’ve got to talk with you. Can we meet at the café next to my place at seven?

- Yossie.”


 Maki, relieved and a little surprised because of Yossie’s message, gave a response almost immediately.

“I’m coming!

- Goto.”


“If give a response to Reina right now would be as easy as give this one…”

***

“So, have you talked with Eri…?”

“Yep!”

“And…”

“And she seems to don’t want to forgive you!” Risa said cheerfully to Sayumi.

“And why are you saying this like that…? Why are you so cheerful?”

“Because it’s better to see the bright part of this right now…” Risa replied and winked.

“And that part is?”

“That Kamei will forgive you… She just needs time.” The older stated giving a warm smile to her kouhai. “So don’t lose hope!”

“Ok…” Sayumi agreed.

“Well, now I’ll leave you alone with your thoughts. Bye!” And she went back to do her business, while the younger looked at her from behind, maybe a little longer than the necessary…

“Risa…” Sayumi thought. “You’ve been so good to me since we met…”

“Hey, Michishige-san…” Aika greeted coming out of nowhere. “Why are you looking at Niigaki-san so deeply?” She asked with a devious smirk.

“What are you insinuating, you little baby…?”

“Nothing, nothing… But the glow in your eyes wasn’t normal…” She stated in a musical voice.

“Mind your own business!”

“Ok, sorry…” And the youngest of the group went away.

“A special glow in my eyes…? Am I... No, it can’t be…”

***

“So what is it, Yossie?”

“Well, I don’t know how explain this…” Yossie explained nervously to her old friend as she sipped her coffee. “Erm… It’s about Rika.”

Suddenly, Maki’s blood freeze, she was in a complete state of tension, probably thinking of she had got caught, and Yossie noticed this.

“You ok?”

“Y-Yeah…” Maki stuttered, pretending that she was fine. “What is it…?”

“Well… She’s been little distant with me lately…” She explained calmly. “Well… not exactly a little… She’s been a lot…”

“And… What do I have to do with this…?” Maki asked.

“Nothing, really.” Maki relaxed when she heard that. “But since she called you the other day… I wondered if she had said something to you…”

“I didn’t see her.” The soloist retorted quickly, maybe too quickly. “But however… You shouldn’t worry so much… Maybe she’s just stressed…”

“But I’m afraid of loosing her!” Yossie cut her off, and Maki tried to analyze what her friend had just said…

Yossie sounded fearful, very unlike her. To Maki, her reaction almost looked like her own when she thought about the idea of loosing Reina.

“What do you mean… what do you mean with “loosing her”?” Maki stuttered nervously, afraid of Hitomi’s response, because she knew where that words where leading.

“Listen… We haven’t told this to anybody yet…” And Yoshizawa took a long pause.

Maki swallowed hard, she knew what her friend was about to say.

“We’re dating… And I’ve got the feeling that she’s cheating on me…”
