« on: December 25, 2017, 05:16:14 PM »
I'm here with a new long story with my favortie couple, YuriAnnin ! :)
I hope you will like it ^^


Prologue


Another sigh, another thought. Another day, another time. The same work, the same life, the same friends. Tomorrow will look like yesterday. Nothing happens, it’s just a normal lifestyle. I know it will not change. Life can be hard. Nobody can control it. Feelings are the same. We can’t control them either. What if someone comes to disturb my peaceful life? Will I be able to stand it?

Hmmm... Interesting start. Who is speaking though? Seems like they have a negative outlook on life.

Would love to see where you take this.

Chapter 1: Neighbour & Work


The hot sun started disappearing in front of my eyes, replaced by the cold moon. Time passed. I couldn't do anything. I should have come back inside. But I didn't want. I felt free here. No pressure, no stress. Only me and the time.

“You shouldn't stay here. It's getting cold.” I heard an unfamiliar voice not far from me.

I slowly turned my head, leaving the sky to look at her. She was standing up on the balcony. Who was she? Wait. My neighbor, as she was just in the flat next to me.

“What about you?” I only snapped.

She disturbed me. I was annoyed, I was fine peacefully in my world. I turned my gaze to the sky again without really waiting for her answer. I didn't care if she was cold or not. I couldn't believe this girl just disturbed me. I was no longer focused on the sky anymore. I released a light sigh and went back to my house, glancing toward the nearby balcony. She wasn't here. Did I just dream? Well, she must have left. I closed my eyes, lying on my bed. I hoped nobody will bother me for my sleep.

The sun dazzled me. I groaned, still tired. I forgot to close the curtain yesterday. I reached my kitchen, taking a cup in the white cupboard. The noisy sound of the coffee maker as usual. I stayed leaning against the table, listening to the hot liquid which was pouring. Once it was over, I grabbed it, taking care of not burn myself. I sat in front of the TV with a cookie as breakfast. I wasn't the type of person who eats a lot in the morning. I drank a light mouthful. I could feel the hot coffee, warming my throat. I took a piece of cookie in my mouth before looking at my phone. I still had a bit of time. Putting the cup in the sink, I will clean it later. I went into the bathroom. I undressed my clothes before going to the shower. I turned the water on, feeling the heat on my skin. I liked it. I could stay for long minutes here, thinking about nothing. But I couldn't right now, so I made it quick. I put a towel on my body, leaving my bathroom. It was a good day to run. I grabbed my sports clothes and wore it. I quickly took another towel and went to my balcony. I started drying my hair. It wasn't too hot or too cold. I felt fine here. I heard a light sound next to me and quickly looked at it, my towel playing with my wet hair. The young girl didn't look at me. Her gaze was toward the city. She was only sitting here, drinking coffee, I guess. She was wearing a… what was that? A dress maybe. I couldn't really see, but she looked stylish and girlish, definitively more than me.  I finished to dry my hair which was less wet, and I tied it to make a ponytail. Putting my favorite sneakers, I was ready to leave. No, I forgot something important. I put my phone in my pocket and took my earphones. I didn't turn the music on yet. I grabbed my keys and left my flat. I closed the door carefully, locking it. I turned around but hit someone. I heard something falling on the ground. It was a box full of books.

“Sorry.” I mumbled, looking at the person.

I stayed a bit stunned for some seconds. Anna was on the balcony a few minutes ago. Maybe I just took too much time.

“It's okay.”

“Let me help you.” I told her, putting the books which fell from the boxes before taking it to hand her.

“Thank you.” She spoke in a light tone.

I turned on the music and started running once I reached outside. I thought about the girl. She must have been my new neighbor. It was a long time there was no one. I should put something on my balcony. I wasn’t used to having someone here, and I wanted to have my privacy. It wasn't as if a lot of things happened, but I was okay in my own world.
I came back home after running. I was tired and completely sweaty. I wanted to remove my t-shirt, but a light knock at the door stopped me. I released an annoyed sigh. I opened the door with a cold expression.

“Hello. We couldn't properly introduce each other. I'm Iriyama Anna. Your new neighbor.”

I stared at her without answering. I must have looked so creepy right now. I didn't know what to say.

“Kizaki Yuria.” I managed to answer after some seconds.

She smiled quickly before stepping back.

“I'm sorry for disturbing you.”

I looked at her, leaving.

“Iriyama-san wait.” I called her suddenly. “Do you need some help with your boxes?”

“Oh, yes.”

“I take a shower, and I come to help you then.” I finally showed a smile.

She nodded and went into her flat. I closed my door and removed my t-shirt, feeling the cold on my skin. I shivered, I really needed to take a shower. Why did I say that? I even didn't know her. I wasn't really friendly. Anyway, it was too late. I knocked at her home, waiting.

“You're quick Kizaki-san. May I offer you a coffee?” Anna asked kindly.

Another? Well, we should starting moving these boxes.

“No thanks.” I answered, hoping to not be mean.

“Let's go then.”

I followed her to the truck. There were a lot of boxes here. It will be a long day. I started helping her. I didn't really know how long we moved her boxes, but I couldn't feel my arms anymore, and I was starving.

“We should take a break.” She told me, looking at the messy living room.

I wanted to answer, but my stomach decided to do it for me and grumbled. I didn't speak while I heard Anna giggling at me.

“Here.” She handed me a sandwich. “Let's eat.”

She had another one in her hands. I wondered why she had two of it but not for long. I was too hungry. We started eating, sitting on the floor. It was quiet. I usually liked it, but right now it felt uncomfortable.

“My friend should have come to help me, but finally she was busy.” She spoke in a light tone.

“I see.” I only answered.

I had an answer to my question.

“Where are you from?” I asked, curious.

I wasn’t used to talking, but I felt curious about Anna.

“Chiba.”

So she didn't move too far, as we were in Tokyo. I wondered why but I didn't want to be too annoying. We finished to eat and started moving the boxes again.
The end of the day came quickly. Finally, I was glad to help her. We could talk together for a time. Well, even though it was mostly about her new flat but anyway, it changed from my everyday life. I looked at all the boxes in front of me. We were over. A light smile was drawing on my lips without really knowing why.

“Next time, I should give you a real meat.” She laughed putting the last box.

Wait, what? She wanted me to come over, right? Well, I spent a good time, why not. I couldn't help, but I accepted before leaving her. What an exhausting day. I relaxed, sitting on my couch. I thought about my day and couldn't help to smile. I cast a quick glance to the window. The sky became red, and the sun started disappearing. I reached my balcony, as I always did. I stayed standing her alone for some time, looking at the night sky, the shiny stars. Alone. I suddenly felt terribly alone. I didn't like to have that kind of thought. It made me feel sad. I lowered my head, staring at the city under me.

“Is everything okay Kizaki-san?”

I quickly raised my head and looked at the voice. I showed a bitter smile.

“Yes.” I only spoke.

“Are you living in Tokyo for a long time?” She asked in a soft tone, gazing at the sky.

“It's been three years now.” I answered, still my head toward her.

“I see, so, where are you from?”

Her warm tone made me feel better. I felt less alone. I had someone to speak. Well, she was only my neighbor, but I didn't know why I liked it.

“Aichi.” I finally looked up at the sky again.

“It's far.”

Yes, it was. I could miss my friends, my family, and my hometown. But I was here, in Tokyo, for work. And I loved it. The dance was all my life. I suddenly thought about the new dance of tomorrow. I was in a hurry to learn something new.

“Good night, Kizaki-san.”

I didn't answer, still daydreaming. Well, I should do the same. I cast a quick glance to the empty balcony before going back inside. The heat literally jumped on me. Next time, I must bring a cardigan or something like that.

I turned off my alarm and quickly reached my kitchen. The sun was shining, it will definitively be a good day. I was in a good mood. I didn't walk around in my house as I usually did. After my morning coffee, I changed my clothes and left my flat. Sitting on the metro, I put my earphones and turned the music on. Everyone was moody, people didn't talk or look at each other. Their gazes were locked on the floor. I reached my work's place. I opened the door, greeting the choreographer before going to the changing room. Here, I could see my co-worker, Matsui Jurina. She impressed me.

“Hello, Yuria.” Jurina pulled me into a quick hug.

“Hi.” I smiled, putting my bag on the bench.

We reached the main room where a few dancers were waiting. We talked for a few minutes until everybody was here. Our choreographer came, and we quickly stopped talking.

“Good morning. So, today we will do a new choreography.” She paused for a few seconds. “By the way, we have a new designer for your costumes.”

That was true, the previous one left a few weeks ago, and we had nobody. I hoped the designer could make great things like the other one. Costumes were essential for us, it gave another meaning to the dance.

“She is here today to see the new dance.” She stopped talking, looking at the door. “If she comes…”

“I'm sorry, I'm late!” A young figure shouted, breathless before bowing quickly in front of us

I must have dreamed, right? It couldn't be her. She looked at me, it seemed that she was looking at me. I turned my eyes away, feeling uncomfortable.

“It's okay, Iriyama-san.”

My neighbor was the new designer. I couldn't really believe it. She asked me to come over the last time. I didn't really like to mix work and private life. Anyway, it wasn't as if we were friends. I already made an exception for Jurina.

“So, the center for that dance will be Matsui Jurina…” The choreographer told us.

As almost usual, Jurina was one of our best dancers.
 
“… and Kizaki Yuria.”

My brain suddenly stopped working. Me? Really? Was I that good to dance center with Jurina? I cast a worried glance at my friend who only showed me a warm smile. Then, it started. Knowing Anna here stressed me a bit more than usual. I felt more careful about each of my moves. Or maybe, it was just a feeling. But anyway, she was here, standing up, taking notes, looking at us.
I felt a significant pressure on me now. Should I be able to do it? I needed to train a lot.

“Yuria?” Jurina called me, pulling me from my thoughts.  “You can do it, don't worry.” She reassured me before leaving the changing room.

I only smiled at her words. Could I? Jurina was the best, I trusted her, but this time it was about me. Did she say it because she was my friend? No, it was not Jurina's style. I will do my best. At least, I'll try…
“Are you going home Kizaki-san?”

I turned around, looking at the tall woman in front of me. I showed her a slight smile before answering.

“Yes, and you?”

She only nodded, glancing at the floor. She seemed a bit uncomfortable. I wondered why. Was something wrong?

“Well… Can we go home together?” She spoke in a quiet tone.

I wanted to answer no. I wanted to go home alone. But, my mind didn't think the same.

“Of course.”

Why? I wasn't able to say what I wanted or what? Well, I should stop trying to ignore her, she just decided to be kind…? Or friendly. I took my bag, and we left.

“I was lost this morning.” She told me in a shy tone.

I tried to hold back my laugh, but I let out a soft chuckle.

“Really? That's why you were late.” I added in a teasing tone.   

“Y-Yeah...” She lowered a bit her head.

We took the metro, walked to home. We didn't talk a lot. Well, we didn't talk at all. It was completely quiet. I felt so uncomfortable right now. We reached the building. The time seemed so long suddenly.
“Thank you a lot, Kizaki-san.” She told me with her warm voice.

“You're welcome.” I only smiled, going into my flat.

To Be Continued…

So it was Yuria speaking in the prologue. :lol:

Of course you can't resist being friendly with her, Yuria. It's called love at first sight. :wub:

I get this feeling that Annin is planning something. :?
I don't know why.

Looking forward to the next update.
