@amachan48: Hi there new reader
glad you’re taking a liking to my new fic. Hope you’ll stay even after finding out who it’ll be.
@Feat: Lol you’ll know now and thanks for reading.
@cisda83: I end it there because that is the art of cliff-hanging, to keep people interested lol and I think it was mentioned somewhere in real life that she doesn't have the dating rule stated in her contract. I could be wrong though... The restaurant was from Mujack when she had a date with Yuko, not Tomochin.
@Kakeru15: Thanks for reading and commenting as always ^_^
@nutangmo2: You will find out this chapter about the girl. I tried my best to make the girl seem like Atsuko, but it seems you already know it’s not. Also, it seems you’re a new reader, so welcome and thank you
@Justqle: It seems you have someone in mind, who do you think it is? And no worries, Acchan will still be in the story. I’m not sure on the result yet though… anyway, thanks for reading and commenting as always
@ubulubulbilu: Reading your comment makes me laugh, but you’ll find out this chapter.
@noah minami: Are you the one who write fanfics? Thanks for reading mine.
I do hope that after finding out about this person, you guys would still be interested in reading my fanfic.
Anyway, continue on
“Hajimemashite Takahashi-san.” The girl smiled sweetly at the soukantoku, causing the young leader to have a raise in heartbeats.
“Kohaku Uta desu, Utan is fine.” The girl bows slightly, giving the captain that cute smile again.
“Kohaku-san yoroshiku onegaishimasu.” The short girl nodded, looking at the taller one up and down. She was wearing long black skinny jeans, a slightly big love pink shirt that shows off one of her shoulders, and hi-top Nike sneakers to match.
“Call me Uta, or Utan.” Kohaku puts her hand out to shake it with her oshimen.
“Then call me, Minami or Takamina.” Takahashi shook the hand, but felt a tiny shock. She looked at her empty palm wondering what the tingle was just now.
Takamina look up with face blushing red from hearing her real name. The only other people who has ever calls her by Minami is Atsuko and Mariko. She didn’t know how she felt about the girl in front of her calling her by such an intimate name.
Kohaku was pointing to a staff-san with another note in hand. The soukantoku took the paper and read it out loud again.
“Now that you have met your partner, Kohaku Uta-san…” The leader took a quick glance at the girl then focuses back on reading.
“Please eat lunch with her and get to know each other at your restaurant…” Out of the captain’s peripheral vision, she can see the taller girl smiling at her, making her own lips curve up too.
“Please have fun, as this is the first of your many dates.” Hearing the word date makes both of the girl blushes.
“Good luck Takahashi-san and Kohaku-san.” That was the end of the note, leaving the two girls standing, and looking at each other shyly.
“Um, Kohaku-san, do you want to sit inside or out here?”
“Call me Uta, Mi~na~mi~” The girl pouted her lips, hoping that this would make Takamina stop the formality.
“Ah... U-Utan?” The expression on the soukantoku’s face makes the taller girl giggled.
“Un~ and it’s a nice weather today, why don’t we sit out here?” The girl walked over to pick the middle table.
“Okay, I’ll be right back, you sit first.” The leader walked back into her restaurant to find her worker.
“Yamagata, we’ll be eating soon, so tell the chef to turn on the kitchen and bring the menus out.”
“Hai, Takahashi-san.” The worker bows and went to do what he was told.
The captain walked out to the porch, but suddenly stopped. She saw Kohaku leaning on the rail, watching the scenery. The girl seems so peaceful. She must have worked really hard to be able to enjoy this serenity.
Takamina walk towards the girl and lean on the rail next to her. The girl doesn’t seem to notice the shorter one, as she continues to watch people enjoying their company down below.
“It’s nice up here, huh?” The soukantoku spoke up, surprising the taller one.
“Sorry for scaring you.”
“It’s fine, and yeah, it’s really nice. I’m jealous of you for owning this place.” The girl jokes, causing both of them to chuckle.
“You can always come here if you want. Just let me know.” The leader smiled genuinely at the girl in front of her.
“Thank you. I might take you up on that offer.” The girl grins back, not noticing a piece of leaf has been stuck to her hair.
Takamina reach out to pick the piece off. She then straightens out the messed up hair. The hair was medium length; it goes down to the middle of the girl’s neck. She has one tiny braid on each side that she puts behind her ears to show her face. Her hair style kind of reminds me of Atsuko’s… there seem to be some resemblance too…
“Takahashi-san, here are the menus.” Yamagata stood next to the table watching his boss telling the girl to sit down. He continues to wait till both girl settled down before he placed the menu in front of them. He was going to ask if the girls wanted anything to drink, but his boss beat him to it.
“Would you like anything to drink, Utan?”
“Ah, coke would be fine, thank you.”
“Yamagata, two coke please.” She told her employee, then going back to looking at the menu.
“Hai, I’ll be back soon.” He took his bow and left.
“Have you chosen what to eat, yet?” Takahashi asked, already knowing what she, herself, wanted.
“Um, everything looks so good, I don’t know what to pick.” Kohaku pouted, having a hard time choosing.
“What do you usually like?”
“I like everything…”
“Wah, that doesn’t help at all…” Both girls giggled.
“Why don’t you just order for me?” The partner suggested.
“Eh? What if you don’t like what I ordered?”
“Hmmm… then you have to take a picture with me.” The request was simple. Takamina would have done it either way.
“Sorry to keep you waiting.” Yamagata was back with the two cokes. He got his note out, ready to jot down the orders.
“Yamagata…” The boss signaled for her worker to bend down to whisper to him.
“Bring us some gyoza for appetizer. For the main course, I’ll have katsudon, and for her, spaghetti cream avocado with shrimp. Then for dessert, two cream brulees.”
“Hai, wakarimashita, is there anything else?”
“Nope, thank you Yamagata.” The employee bow and left to pass on the order.
“What did you call for us?”
“Hmm, that’s for me to know, and for you to find out.” The leader teased, moving her eyebrows up and down, making the girl across laugh.
“Fine, meanie.” Kohaku stuck her tongue out like a child, causing them both to break out in joy.
“So how old are you, Utan?" Minami wondered as she regained her composure.
“Eh? Um, you look young, sooo twenty?”
“Hontou ni? Arigatou.” The girl smiled widely, taking it as a compliment for looking young.
“Are you gonna tell me?”
“Wow, you’re only one year younger…” Takamina was really surprised.
“Yeah and you’re twenty-three, happy belated birthday.” The girl grins at the captain.
“Thank you, so do you know me and what I do?” The leader didn’t want to assume that she is well known in Japan. There are people out there who don’t know what AKB48 is, let alone, knowing who she is.
“Un~ you’re Takahashi Minami, AKB48 no soukantoku, a member of no3b, captain of team A, who debuted as a soloist already.” Kohaku said it proudly.
“Wah~ AKB ga suki desu ka?”
“Oshimen wa dare desu ka?” The question made the taller girl blush. She looks at the captain and answered shyly.
“M-Minami desu.” She looked away, trying to calm her beating heart.
Takamina was taken by surprised. She didn’t expect herself to be her partner’s oshimen. Somehow this makes her really happy.
“Arigatou gozaimasu.” She stood up to walk over to the other side. She held the girl’s hand with both of hers, shaking and bowing her head at the same time in appreciation.
“Here’s the appetizer.” Yamagata came out to settle the gyoza down on the table.
“Can you refill our coke please?”
“Hai.” Yamagata took the two glasses and went back inside.
Takamina went to sit back down, waiting for the drinks to come. She looks at the girl, waiting for her to get the first piece, but said girl didn’t even move.
“Utan, you can dig in, you know?”
“I was waiting for you to take the first one.”
“Eh? I was waiting for ‘you’ to take the first piece.” Both of the girls laugh at their silliness, and decided to take a gyoza together. They dipped it in soy sauce and put the whole thing in their mouth.
The leader looked over at her date to see if the girl liked it. The girl was chewing with her mouth full, looking like a chipmunk, and hand was fanning the hot air that was coming out. The sight was funny, making the owner of the restaurant giggled.
“Mou~ don’t laugh at me.” The girl tries to pout, but the food was still too hot for her to do it, causing the shorter girl to laugh even harder. They both continued eating what’s left of the appetizer, and wait until the main course comes out.
“So how did you like it?”
“It was really good. I feel like I won’t be getting that picture now.” Uta pouted, giving Takamina her puppy dog eyes, which only makes the girl chuckled.
“There’s more coming out. You still have a chance of saying you don’t like it.” The soukantoku was definitely teasing the younger girl. She hadn’t had so much fun teasing before because she’s always the one on the receiving end.
“You’re right. I will get that picture with you Minami.” The girl grins at the leader showing her perfect white teeth.
Yamagata came out with the main course, putting katsudon down for Takahashi, and the spaghetti cream avocado with shrimp on Kohaku. He then took the gyoza plate, asking if anything else was needed.
“Give us another refill on coke, please.”
“Hai.” He took the two glasses and left.
“Wah~ This looks sooo good Minami!” The girl was really excited about her food.
“Well… try it; see if it’s good or bad.” The captain giggled slightly for receiving a playful glare from her partner.
“I know you’re teasing me.” She pouted, but she twisted her fork into the spaghetti, getting ready for the first bite. She watches the soukantoku looking at her while she tried it. She put the tangled noodles into her mouth and slowly sucking it up.
“I’m glad.” The owner starts digging into her katsudon.
“Yours look really good too…” Kohaku look over at the bowl.
“You want to try?”
“Hontou?... Ah~” The girl opened up her mouth, wanting to be fed.
“Feed me~” The captain took a piece of her katsu and gave the girl a taste.
“I-is it good?” A red tint was on Takamina’s face as she asked her date.
“Do you want to try mine too?”
“Sure.” The captain was about to use her fork to get some, but the girl smack her hand away.
“I’ll feed you.”
“U-uh, no, it’s okay…”
“Come here… say ahhh~” The shorter girl reluctantly open her mouth to eat some.
“Wow, it’s really good. I never tried my own restaurant’s food before.” Both girls went back to their own meal, but the taller girl’s eyes never left the shorter one.
Minami starts digging into her favorite dish, and in the midst of eating and chewing it, she heard a soft giggle coming from the other side.
“W-what? Is there something on my face?” The leader scrunches her eyebrows, checking herself, but nothing was visible.
“Neh, neh, did you notice?”
“Indirect kiss~” Uta was grinning widely at Takamina, making her blush, and choke on her food.
“Are you okay Minami?” The partner stood up and walked over to her date, patting her back, calming her down.
“Y-yeah, I’m okay…” The captain took a ship of her coke to swallow down her food. She signaled for her date to go back to her seat, and continue eating.
“So, um, what do you do Utan?” The question made the girl stopped eating, and to look up at the owner.
“I can’t tell you…” The girl looked away, feeling embarrassed.
“What do you mean? Why not?”
“I… it’s just... I can’t… not yet anyway…” It was really clear that the girl felt uncomfortable sharing, but that made the leader wonders why.
“Will you tell me by the end of our date?”
“Depends on what?”
“You’ll see.” It was the girl’s turn to tease the beloved soukantoku, but the shorter girl oblige anyway.
Yamagata came out right on time as they both finished their food. He cleaned up the plate and brought out the dessert, then took his leave.
“I hope you like sweets. I heard cream brulee here is pretty good.” This comment made by the owner cause Uta to laugh.
“You do realize this is your restaurant? I know for sure it’ll be delicious like the others… which makes me sad because I won’t get that picture.” The girl pouted, making the captain took her cream brulee and move next to her.
“Let’s take some pictures on our phones…” Takamina said while turning her face somewhere else for she didn’t want Kohaku to see her red cheeks.
Both girls took out their iPhones making faces towards it. There are pictures where they were both eating the dessert, there are pictures where the date feed the shy owner, and there’s one where Minami was caught by a surprise kiss on the cheek from Uta. They had lots of fun with each other as they finishes off the sweets.
“That was really delicious, thank you Minami. How much is it?” The girl took out her wallet wanting to pay for her portion.I guess they didn’t tell her it was on us…
“No, its fine, you don’t have to pay.”
“I would feel bad if you take this…”
“The company paid for us, but even if they didn’t, I wouldn’t have let you pay…”
“Oh? They didn’t tell me much about this…” The girl scrunches her eyebrows, wondering why they didn’t give her the details.
“Is there something wrong?” Takahashi was concern about her newly made friend.
“I don’t want this to end yet…” Kohaku whispered to herself, but the leader had heard what she said. She, herself, didn’t want this to end yet either.
“Huh? Go where?”
“Don’t you want to continue our date?” Takamina chuckled, holding her left hand out for the girl to grab.
“U-un~” The girl smiled at her partner, and took her hand. They both walk together swinging their clasp hands toward the festival place.
There were so many games to play. They walk past a kiosk that has a one piece cell phone charm. It was a hello kitty luffy with the pirate skull sign dangling below it. The charm came in pink and blue, and if you pop all six balloons, you get the pair.
“Neh neh, Utan, I want to play this.”
“What do you want to win?
“Do you see the One-Piece phone charms? I want them~” The soukantoku told her partner excitedly.
“Okay, I’ll win it for you.” The girl paid for it and told the store owner what she wanted.
“Eh? These things are hard to win though, so let me pay and do it.”
“No no no, let me win this for you, please?” The girl gave the leader her pout and cute puppy dog eyes, making the captain let her do what she wants.
“Okay, good luck Utan~”
Kohaku got six darts and tries to focus on each balloon. The first three were a clear shot. The fourth popped, but the fifth didn’t, the game was over.
“Awww, you did your best Utan, it’s okay…”
Uta didn’t want to see the sad look on Minami’s face, paid the store woman for another round.
“What are you doing?” The captain pulled on her partner’s shirt.
“I’m winning you the phone charms Minami and you will get it.”
The captain was amazed by the determination showing on her partner’s face. She hopes her date would win it this time.
“Good luck Utan~”
“Hmmm, if you give me a kiss, I bet I will easily.” Kohaku grins widely at Takamina, making the girl red.
“I-I don’t think that would change anything…”
“Well, you never know if you don’t try, right?”She does have a point, but it’s embarrassing…
Minami gave Uta a kiss on the cheek as good luck, but she immediately looked away. The girl was surprised for she didn’t expect the soukantoku to kiss her. She was only teasing the girl, but now that she got the kiss, she will definitely win for sure.
After hearing three quick balloons popped, the leader turned to watch her date. Again, her partner was really serious and determined. She can feel that the girl would really be able to deflate all six of them.
There was just one balloon left. This is it. Either a hit or miss. She was watching her with concentration, but the girl didn’t throw the last dart.
“Minami, come here.” Uta waved her date over to stand in front of her towards the wooden counter.
“W-what is it?”
“I want you to throw this one with me.”
“Eh? It’s not possible, I can’t do it…”
The girl put the dart in Takamina’s right hand, and held onto it with her own, laying her head on her shoulder. She wraps her left arm around the girl’s waist as they focus together.
They threw it.
It was the slowest three seconds of their lives, and…
“Yatta~” Minami screamed out in delight, turned around, and wrapped her arms around Uta’s neck in a tight hug.
Both of them jumped around giggling with each other. Kohaku picked the leader up and spun her around, making both of them laugh out of happiness.
“Congratulation.” The owner of the store gave Uta the two phone charms. The girl took them and gave it to her partner.
“Thank you, Utan.”
“Where else do you want to go?”
“Hmm, there’s a pond of fishes that makes your feet smooth, right? I wanna go there.”
“Eh? You like those things?”
“It’s a funny feeling.”
“Okay… let’s go.” Takahashi walked first, but then she notices her partner wasn’t moving.
The girl didn’t say anything except for holding her right hand out. The leader blushed again, understanding what she wanted, and took hold of it as she lead the girl towards the fish place.
“So we have to go in here to get to the fish pond, and we can use the hot spring too, but we have to pay first.”
“Okay, I got it.”
“No, you already got me the charms, let me pay for this.”
Uta really didn’t want Takamina to pay, so she stood in front of her date, left arm wrapping around the girl’s waist and lean forward.
The kiss on the cheek took the captain by surprised, making her turn her face somewhere else to not look at her partner.
The taller girl took this opportunity to pay for the both of them, causing the shorter one to frown.
The soukantoku continued to lead her date to the fish pond to get their feet smooth out, but the incident earlier still bothered her.
They got to the place as Kohaku put her feet in, while Takahashi was just watching her.
“Utan~ I said I’ll pay for it.” The AKB girl pouted, bringing the subject up.
“I don’t want you to pay though…” The younger girl said with her eyes staring at the older girl’s lips.
“Hmmm, because I’m the boyfriend, aren’t I?” The girl tilted her head in question.
“Eh? I’ve always been the boyfriend though…”
“I think Minami is more suited as a girlfriend.” Uta smiled sweetly at Takamina, leaving the girl speechless.
“Un~” Uta scooted over sitting closely next to Minami. She then encourages her to also put her feet in, but the captain squirmed a bit due to it being ticklish. She held her date’s hand again as they both played around with the tiny fishes. I haven’t had this much fun in a while…
“Where else do you want to go after this?”
“Hmmm, I want to eat some festival food.”
“Huh? You’re hungry again?”
“Awww, come on Minami~” The girl took hold of the leader’s arm and shook it playfully.
“Hai hai, we’ll go get some food.”
“Yay~ let’s go, let’s go.”
Both girl took their feet out and wiped it dry. They went back to the festival area and came to a takoyaki stand.
“Which fillings do you want, Minami?”
“How about shrimp?”
“Okay, one order of takoyaki shrimp please.” Uta told the owner and paid for them.
“Utan~ stop paying for me…”
“It’s okay, Minami, I was the one who wanted to eat.”
“I know, but… is it because you’re the boyfriend?” The captain tilted her head cutely, wondering if that was the only reason.
“No...” The girl shook her head. She then looks at her date in the eyes.
“It’s because I like you.” The seriousness in the girl’s eyes make Takamina couldn’t look away, causing her to utter nothingness.
The soukantoku didn’t know what to say. She didn’t expect that to be the answer. She wonders when the girl started liking her.
While Takahashi was in her own thoughts, Kohaku got the food, and lead her partner to a quiet area where it’ll just be the two of them watching their surroundings.
“Open up, Minami.” Uta took a ball of takoyaki, blow on it, and feed it to Takamina.
“Really?” The girl then took one and ate it herself. She nodded her head up and down in agreement to what her date had said.
“D-did you mean what you said earlier?”
“About what?” The girl knew what the leader was hinting at, but she wants to hear her say it.
“About liking… me…” The short girl has a hard time saying it out, for she was shy.
The younger girl settled the food down and took hold of the older girl’s hands. She looks at her in the eyes and repeated the same thing she did before.
“I like you, Minami, I mean it.”
“Why? How? When?” The soukantoku was definitely confused. She only met the girl today, and she still hasn’t known much about her.
“I like you because you are sweet and caring… I don’t know how, I just do, and since I’ve became a big fan of yours… I know I only get to see the Takahashi Minami from AKB48, but I would really love to get to know the real Takahashi Minami, if you let me.” The girl was really sincere, Takamina can feel it, but she doesn’t know if she feels the same way towards her date.
“I know you are confused right now, and that you’re not sure about your feelings, but can we just get to know each other first?”
The captain really wouldn’t mind getting to know more about this girl. She had so much fun with this person, which she hadn’t for a long while. This girl makes her laugh, makes her relax, and even treat her like the girl that she is. Even if she doesn’t develop any feelings for her, she can gain her as a friend, and that is also valuable.
“Okay.” Takamina smiled at the girl.
“Yay~” Uta hugged the soukantoku, glad that she’ll have a chance.
The girls continued on eating, they wouldn’t have remembered that this whole date was being filmed, if the staff member didn’t give Takahashi another note.
“We are glad to see that things are working out well between Takahashi-san and Kohaku-san.” Both girls blushed.
“We are sorry to inform you that the filming will be over soon, for it is getting late.” The girls looked up in the sky and it was indeed getting dark. They had too much fun together that time flies by fast.
“We would like for the both of you to keep the details of this date and program to yourself until this episode is published…Please enjoy the rest of your date without any interruption until we all have to leave.” The staff came back to take the note and true to their words, the girls were left alone as the crew continued to record, and at the same time packing up.
“So what is it that you do?” Takamina brought up the subject of work again. Since they are getting to know each other, it’s only fair that she also knows what her date is doing.
“I’m afraid if I tell you, you won’t like me anymore…” Kohaku look away with a sad expression, leaving the leader clueless.
“No matter what you do, I won’t change my mind and here... I want you to keep this.” The captain handed over the blue one-piece strap to the girl.
“Eh? This is yours though…”
“You won it, and I really want you to have it. I hope you don’t mind getting the blue one because I like pink…”
“Are you sure? These phone charms are made for couples, you know.” The taller girl teased the shorter one, earning a playful slap from said girl.
“I know… j-just keep it okay?” Takamina turned away, hiding the red tints on her cheeks.
“Minami~” Uta leaned in, getting ready to give the soukantoku a kiss.
“Hmm?” The older girl turned over, her face came into contact with the girl’s lips.
“Thank you.” The younger girl smiled.
“I-it’s nothing, b-but don’t think I forgot about the main question.”
“Neh, Minami~ will you kiss on the first date?” Kohaku lean in close to Takahashi, leaving only a few inches between them.
“W-what? Why would you ask that?” Blood was rushing up to the short girl’s head. She didn’t know what to do.
“Kiss me then I’ll tell you.” The partner leant in closer, making the leader move back.
“What do you mean?”
“You want to know what I do, so kiss me and I’ll tell you.”
“N-no, tell me then I’ll kiss you.”
“So you will kiss me?” The girl grinned, having the captain caught in her web. The leader was so nervous that she didn’t think straight and just switch the order of what the girl had proposed.
“N-not on the first date…”
“So maybe the second date?”
“Utan~ tell me.” Takamina whines and pouted her lips, making her partner giggled.
Now that you know who the third person is... I present you Nisemono's official poster
So yeah... thats chapter 2. I hope it wasn't too boring for you guys, as it's only the first date.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment ^_^
