Risa scolded herself aloud and smacked her forehead <-----I can practically imagine that scenario and her expression.


Exactly. I can imagine Risa doing that too :D

Thanks for reading and commenting JFC, katatsumuri & rndmnwierd. I love reading your replies :heart:

Chapter 12


[Lobby]

Reina had woken up late this morning. She was just stepping into the cafeteria when a gust of wind comparable to a torpedo swirled out and grabbed her wrist, pulling her along in its fury.  



[Movie Theater]

“We’ll have the largest box of popcorn, sweet. Some nachos, hotdogs, chips… oh and coke. The NON-DIET kind.”

“Are you sure you wanna do this? You only lost weight recently.”

Reina counted the number of snacks Risa ordered with her fingers and decided to remind her sempai who wasn’t much older. Thirteen months to be exact.

“To hell with weight watching. To hell with diets. And to hell with rules!”

“It’s not like I’ll be getting another photo book anytime soon after AmaNatsu anyway.”

Risa grabbed the massive amount of snacks piled on the countertop and headed towards theater number 9. Reina shrugged her shoulders and followed after the fuming gokkie.



[45 Minutes into the Movie]

“Popcorn.”

Risa had finally simmered down enough to stop gorging herself and pushed the L-sized cup over to Reina.

“I don’t want any.”

“You could definitely put some weight on those arms of yours. You’re way too skinny. Besides, how could you reject my ‘popcorn love’?”

Risa snickered at her own joke. She still remembered the coupling song of Mr Moonlight ~ Ai No Big Band that she had chosen to sing at the 2005 fan club event held in Hong Kong.

“I said I didn’t want any!”

Reina raised her voice slightly this time and it cracked a little.
 
“Holy crap! You’re crying.”

Risa stared, jaw dropped at the wonky-eyed member who had tears escaping her eyes.

“Shut up. The movie’s sad.”

“It’s a freaking comedy?”

“Whatever.”

Reina turned to face the wall not wanting to explain anything more to her shell-shocked sempai. She was glad they had chosen side seats.

Chapter 13


[Streets of XXX]

The walk back to the apartment was in silence as Risa struggled for something to say.

The youngest member of the group next to Koharu was clearly troubled and it was up to her to set things right. After all, she had been placed in charged of the 6th generation one too many times.  

“You know, even though you’re yankee and all. You still can tell people stuff.”

“Yeah right. Do you seriously believe that anyone gives a damn to our feelings? We’re just money making machines.”

The retort from Reina shut Risa up. It was no use arguing with what was the truth.



[Reina’s Room]

Later that night, all was quiet and most of the building dark when Reina was awaken from her sleep by what she thought was a faint knocking on her door.

“I must be imagining things.”

Reina mumbled after reading the time from the luminous hands of her clock. 3 AM.

The knocking became incessantly louder until Reina crawled out from under the covers and made her way to the door.

“That took you long enough.”

Risa complained as soon as the door swung open to reveal a messy-haired Reina dressed in a tank and shorts.

“Gaki-san?”

“The one and only.”

Risa breezed passed the surprised Reina standing at the doorway and sat herself on the bed without waiting for an invitation.

“What are you doing here so late at night?”

“So early in the morning you mean.”

Risa grinned mischievously. She was enjoying every moment of watching Reina still in a daze after being woken from her beauty sleep.

“Whatever. Why…”

“I brought you your listening ear.”

“Huh?”

“Mr Pookie.”


-- Thanks for the nice comments huggumwuggums :) You made my day. bluekinoko, I'm honoured to be graced by your reply :P  It's been ages since I saw you around.

Chapter 14


Risa brought out the teddy bear she had been hiding behind her back this entire time and trusted it into Reina’s arms.

“Mr Pookie will listen to everything you say. No complaints and no secrets will ever be leaked. He is sworned to secrecy.”

Slightly more awake than before, Reina raised an eyebrow and looked from Risa to the grayish teddy bear in her hands and back again to the figure seated on the edge of her bed.

“What the hell…”

“That’s all I came to say. Nighties.”

Getting up from the bed, Risa tapped Reina twice on the shoulder before flicking off the light switch.

In less than five minutes, Reina was engulfed in darkness once again with the soft click of the door being closed.



[Ai’s Room]

Ai flipped her Ribon No Kishi script close and squeezed her eyes shut. Except that it was no use. She couldn’t get the image out of her mind.

The image of Risa emerging from Reina’s bedroom at 3 AM in the morning.  

“What were they doing. Or rather, what did they do?”



[Dance Studio – The Next Morning]

“Ai-chan. Ai-chan!”

Waving her hand in front of Ai’s face, Makoto tried to get the girl's attention with no success. Ai was still staring off into space.

Makoto turned to Konno with a questioning look. But her puffy-faced companion only shrugged her shoulders and shook her head.

“You’ll be better off asking Gaki. There she comes.”

As soon as Risa sat down to complete the semi-circle that the other three gokkies had formed, Makoto nudged her in the arm.

“What’s up with Ai?”

Surprised to be asked such a question the moment she sat down, Risa looked over at Ai to see what had happened.

Seeing the usually perky Ai’s tired expression, Risa expressed her concern.

“You ok? You look tired.”

“Yes, I’m fine.”

Ai replied softly before asking.

“Can we talk?”


-- Mr Pookie's revealed. Hope you ain't disappointed bluekinoko. And yup I agree thats good psychology JFC :P You guessed it rndmnwierd! :lol:

Chapter 15

Sensing the weird atmosphere, Konno stood up and pulled Makoto along with her.

“Let’s go get a drink from the cooler.”

“Ok. Hey you gals want any?”

“Let’s go!”

Konno pulled Makoto off hurriedly with a jerk before the oblivious girl managed to get an answer from the two seated on the floor.

“Gaki….”

“Yeah?”

“What were you doing last night?”

“I was in my room. Reading that book you recommended. Why?”

“Just asking. It’s nothing really.”

Ai forced a smile onto her face. However inside, her heart was sinking. It was the first time Risa had lied. And the reason was none other than Tanaka Reina.



[Random Sports Arena Shower Area]

It was just after a game of Kick-base and the Metro Rabbits H.P had won for the first time. 3 – 1. Reina repeated the numbers in her head as she changed out of her sweaty Rabbits uniform for a quick shower.



The team had just under 30 minutes of free time before they had to return to the studio for another round of filming for Hello Morning

Barely seconds after Reina had turned the tap on to feel the rush of the cool water on her warm skin that had endured the sun’s rays for the past couple of hours, someone else entered the shower area. And that someone was humming a familiar tune - Koe.

“Hey.”

Risa looked up from untying her laces to see the number ‘1’ printed on a cute red kick-base jersey. Reina was standing before her, hair dripping with water and clad in only her wet jersey.


-- Of course I'll acknowledge you rndmnwierd. Thanks for reading and replying :) Hope you enjoyed reading this chapter too.

Latercomer here, but better late than never. Actually I came to take a break from writing my fic to read other fics. hehe I'm not a regular here but I thought I'd drop by and see what's here. I love your story,the chapters are short, sweet, and funny and then leaves you hanging at the end. Kameshige's my favorite couple and I like how you presented them. I also like how stories are based off of real incidences which is how most of my stories are. Can't wait to read the next chapter :D

Knowing Ai-chan, she probably had some not-so-dirty thoughts. j/k

Hmm. Wonder what they were doing. Playstation maybe?

Looking forward for the next chapter. :)
