Unrequited II, sequel to Unrequited (a SayaIshi fanfic)
« on: December 07, 2016, 10:50:40 PM »
Thanks to all the readers who read and enjoyed Unrequited! Here is the sequel, Unrequited II!
Check out what happens next when Ayumi wakes up!



Chapter 1: The Awakening

Ayumi slowly opened her eyes to find herself alone in the bed.

The space beside her was painfully empty and cold. Only her loyal stuffed animals remained in the bed but no trace of the jellyfish plush.

The girl was realizing that all of this was just a dream.

Tears were now rolling freely along her cheeks. Her heart was tearing apart, breaking.

Ayumi choked with painful sobs. She was stunned, hurt and terribly sad.
Yet, she didn’t understand why she was still surprised. After all, everyday was the same. She felt lonely and tired. It was as if a cold and merciless wind blew endlessly in her heart. Smiling was her duty as an idol but it was more and more difficult with each passing day.

Of course, she stayed in touch with Riho via LINE and She even talked with her on Skype from time to time but to not be able to be or to dance with her was a pain on a daily basis. Ayumi missed the ace and it was killing her slowly but surely.

She couldn’t help but wonder what she did to deserve this treatment, this pain.

As she wiped off her tears, she noticed that her room was very bright, the sun shining through the curtains. No doubt, it was a mid-to-late morning. Curious, she checked the time on her phone.

It was already 11.15 a.m.

She sure slept a lot! She noticed that Haruna called her a few times. She suddenly remembered that she was supposed to meet her friend at Shibuya at 11 to spend the day with her and her beloved senpai: Michishige Sayumi and Kamei Eri. The PonPon might be a part of it as well.

Feeling bad for not answering her phone, she called back her generation mate to apologize and warn her that she would be late.


“Moshi-moshi? Haruna?” Ayumi said with a faint voice as someone picked up the phone.

“Ayumi-chan? Are you ok? Did you oversleep?” Haruna asked with surprise and the concern in her voice.

“Yeah...yes, I’m ok...” The tiny girl answered without much conviction.

“Did you...Did you dream of her...again?” Haruna asked cautiously, knowing how this very subject was a sensitive one.

“Yes...” Ayumi confessed with a quivering voice.

“I’m sorry...” The taller girl said quietly. She knew how her friend suffered these last months and how she felt useless at comforting her.

“It’s ok.” Ayumi managed to articulate, fighting hard to hold back her tears.

“Ayumi, you should come and spend the day with us. We’ve got a few days off, it would help you clear your mind you know...” Haruna pleaded with concern in her voice.

“Hum...” The tiny girl pondered, not really convinced.

“Michishige-san is here, Kamei-san is here and the PonPon just arrived! We miss you...” Haruna continued on a soft tone.

“Haruna...this dream was weird...It feels so real and yet so strange...” Ayumi began, eager to change the subject as she was not sure yet if she would meet her friends or not.

“Strange? In which way?” The taller girl asked, intrigued.

“Well, all dreams are strange but this one was especially weird since Ikuta-san and you were...lovers...” Ayumi confessed, embarrassed.

“Me? With Ikuta-san?!” Haruna exclaimed with a high-pinch voice. She was totally shocked and, without a doubt, quite red right now.

“Oh...You’re talking about me?” A sharp voice got closer.

“Yes, it seems you were dating Haruna in Ishida-chan’s dream last night...” A high pinch, and yet mature, voice concluded.

“Oh...I wouldn’t mind dating two cute girls!” The sharp voice exclaimed, followed by Haruna’s squeal.

“What...what’s wrong?” Ayumi asked incredulously, not understanding the situation.

“Oh, I’m Ikuta-san’s arms...” Haruna answered with a faint voice. No doubt, the girl was terribly embarrassed and totally red.

“You’re still unable to take good care of a girl, how could you properly look after two?!” A warm and soft voice retorted indignantly.

“But I’m such a hard worker~!” The sharp voice answered cheerfully.

“Sure but you often fails...” The high pinch, and yet mature, voice retorted sarcastically.

“Easy, easy!” A cheerful, and yet sleepy, voice tried to calm things down.

“Maybe but you love me senpai!” The sharp voice pleaded with a cute and fruity voice.

“No and I’m not your senpai: Gaki-san is! I prefer my cute and sweet Rihoriho~!” The high pinch voice retorted matter-of-factly but cutely at the same time.

“Rah, not again! And I’m cute too!” The sharp voice exclaimed with frustration.

“Well...Rihoriho~ is cute, Ishida-chan is cute, Fuku-chan is cute, Haruna is cute too and Eri is super cute but...” The high pinch voice teased mischievously.

“Ah ok I understand!” The sharp voice gave up, totally jaded. As she didn’t talk anymore, she was pouting for sure.

“Well, Ayumi-chan, as you can hear, it’s quite animated here...” Haruna chuckled, slightly embarrassed.

“Ok, I’ll meet you if you’re willing to wait for me...” Ayumi suggested shyly.

“No problem, we’ll wait for you!” Haruna answered on a reassuring tone.

“Thank you! See you then!”

And with that, Ayumi hung up.

Seeing her friends was not a bad idea after all, it would help her cheer up and forget a little this too realistic dream, forget about how she missed Riho. Still, as she ate a light breakfast and began to get dressed, she remembered all the strange events that occurred before this fateful day, the 29th October 2015, when the ace announced her graduation from Morning Musume.


-18th July 2015, Hello Project Summer Tour-

Ayumi and the now famous Dancing Club of Hello Project were rehearsing this day of July to be able to perform in smaller venues.
The major topic of the day was Riho’s absence. Everybody was talking and speculating about it. Only Ayumi stayed silent, still shocked by the ace’s sudden defection.

As the tiny girl was repeating her steps and struggled to stay focus on her work, she couldn’t help but hear a conversation between Yajima Maimi and Nakajima Saki from °C-ute. As everyone, they were talking about Riho and possible causes of her absence.

“So...Do you think it’s the end?” Saki began with her usual frankness.

“Well...I don’t know if Riho-chan is going to graduate but I wouldn’t be too surprised about it...We all know how things are not the same anymore in Morning Musume since Michishige-san’s graduation...” Maimi answered, lost in her thoughts. She was unusually serious.

“Sure you’re right but it would be such a shame for the Hello Project!” Saki noticed while frowning deeply.

“Indeed! And it would be very hard to find a girl of her skill level. I think it’s even impossible but it’s still her choice. She’s free to continue being an idol or stop if she doesn’t like it anymore. Her contract will be renewed, or not, in January. I think we’ll know very soon what’s coming...” The leader of °C-ute and Hello Project explained matter of factly.

The two older girls ended their conversation here and resumed their dance routine. Ayumi was looking at them with a stunned face. Slowly recovering her senses, the tiny girl turned her head to look at her bag where her cellphone was. She then hurriedly went in that direction and grabbed the thing with quivering hands.

She had to text Riho.
She had to make sure she was alright.
She had to reassure herself.

She breathed shakily and began to text:

“Sayashi-san, are you alright?

The girl suddenly felt very shy. She knew she was blushing right now and decided to change slightly the content of her mail:

“Sayashi-san, are you alright?
Everybody here is worried about you...”

Ayumi was definitely not satisfied with her mail. She feared it might sound too rash and make the ace feel guilty to not be here. She decided to text a lighter one:

“Sayashi-san, you definitely must come back soon!
Harocon is a ton of fun and everybody miss you!
Take a good rest and come back in great shape!”

Ayumi pressed the “send” button and felt like a coward. Even under such circumstances, she was unable to express her feelings.
Maybe Riho would not come back but she just couldn’t believe it! She knew how her dance partner was tired this year and put under such great pressure since Michishige-san’s graduation but as all of them! Everybody in Hello Project knew ups and downs, but to leave like that...

To leave her like that was simply out of the question!

Ayumi couldn’t imagine herself dancing alone and her so cool and so determined ace leaving like that.
She couldn’t imagine her loved one leaving the group she dedicated five years of her life.
She couldn’t imagine Riho leaving her.

How was she supposed to dance without her?
How was she supposed to perform without the one she had admired and loved for years?
How was she supposed to keep on working? To keep on living?
It was impossible…

As all these thoughts ran madly in her head, the tiny girl felt distress growing in her heart. Fortunately, she was taken out of her dark thoughts by a response to her mail.

“I don’t know if anybody is missing me but I’ll be back in 3 days.
Good luck for these rehearsals Ayumi-chan!”

As Ayumi read the answer, a single tear dropped on the screen of her phone.
This was not going to be the only one she would shed these next months...

Chapter 2: The Come-back

Four days had passed and she was back. Riho came in the dance room and bended in front of the dance instructor. Then, she quickly made her way toward her comrades to stand beside her dance partner.

“Good morning Sayashi-san, are you feeling better?” Ayumi asked to the girl with a shy and cute smile.

“Hello Ayumi-chan, yeah I’m feeling good, thank you.” Riho quietly answered with an embarrassed but sweet smile.

“Ishida, you’re in charge of Sayashi this morning! I count on you to help her catch up!” The dance instructor ordered with authority.

“Yes, I’ll do my best!” The tiny girl responded while straightening her posture.

“Sorry...” The ace whispered to her partner while looking at her feet, ashamed.

“Don’t worry, it’s ok!” Ayumi reassured her while putting her brightest smile.

Riho slowly looked up to find her comrade gazing at her with sparkling eyes and a loving smile. The ace instantly blushed and looked back at her feet but still smiled sweetly.

Suddenly, Ayumi grabbed the ace’s hand and took her in a corner of the room to have enough space and comfort to practice. There, they quickly began repeating dance steps under the satisfied eye of their dance instructor.

The two girls practiced in silence all along.

Riho had never been the chatty type and was always extremely serious and focused at work. Ayumi was not much talkative either and so, this silence didn’t make her feel uncomfortable, on the contrary. She felt safe and at ease with her dance partner. They never had to speak to understand each other and know what the other was thinking.

Still, the Juuky would have loved to be able to talk with her senpai but she was so intimidated each time Riho looked at her that she was totally at a loss for words. She could only blush, babble and feel her heart rate increase dangerously. She overcame her shyness a few times but it cost her a huge amount of energy and it was just chit-chatting!

Ayumi was now totally convinced that Riho was in a difficult position and was suffering from it. She would love to be able to find the right words, the ones that would sooth her cute ace.

And so, she was deeply thinking about it.

She had to say something, to let the girl know that she was there, that she cared. She had to be brave, to stand out although she felt so small beside her.

“Sayashi-san...I...” The Juuky began awkwardly while looking at her feet. The poor girl was already blushing and biting nervously her bottom lip.

“Hum?” Riho stopped repeating her steps to give full attention to her partner.

“I...I want you to know that I...I’m here! Whatever happens, I’m here! You...You can hold on to me...” Ayumi pleaded sincerely while looking at the one she loved. Her eyes was already shining with tears.

Stunned, the ace didn’t know what to answer. Deeply moved by her comrade’s kindness, she smiled softly at her and whispered a simple “thank you” before resuming her dance routine.

Riho never stopped smiling that morning.


The day was finally over.

All the girls went back to the locker room to get changed.

Ayumi noticed that Riho stayed hot on her heels, to her surprise. Confused, she wondered if the ace felt bad for leaving her alone during four days or if she had just been moved by her words earlier and was maybe relieved to finally have someone to rely on.

Nevertheless, the tiny girl couldn’t help but feel proud and, in fact, very happy about this surprising and sweet turn of events. She hoped Riho would not change her mind and stayed close to her. Now, it was time to take her courage in both hands and break the ice.

As Ayumi went into the locker room, she saw an executive standing, ready to make an announce. She leant back against a wall, ready to hear what he had to say. Riho was beside her. The ace seemed tired but in good mood as she had her characteristic smug smile. The Juuky looked at her from the corner of her eyes and smiled fondly. The Kyuuky noticed it and smiled back sweetly.

“Girls! Please! I have an important announcement! The first week-end of august, we’ll go to a mountain camp! As you may guess, these short holidays will be shot for future DVD Magazines! We count on all of you to have fun and show it! Thank you!”

As soon as the executive ended his speech, loud cheers and claps echoed in the room. Everybody seemed excited and delighted by these unscheduled holidays. Only Riho was still daydreaming.

“I...I think it’ll be good for us to have a break during this Harocon...” Ayumi babbled while making the effort to look at her dance partner in the eyes.

“Yeah, that’s true and I’m glad to go there with you Ayumi-chan!” Riho confessed with a sweet smile and soft eyes.

Ayumi instantly blushed and looked at her feet but Riho soon joined in the general rejoicing and exclaimed cutely “Fuku-chan~, I want to sleep with you during this week-end!!!” before being brutally slapped on the head by the said person. The ace whined but still giggled with the others while Mizuki facepalmed.

Only Ayumi was frowning and finally began to pout.

The tiny girl couldn’t help but feel jealous. Hurt, she was mad and sad at the same time and thus, decided to quickly left the room to go take her shower.


The day finally came.

As everyone got on the bus, Ayumi was caught by Masaki who seemed worried and in a need to talk. The two girls went in the back of the bus, passing by Riho who sat on a solo chair in the front. The ace seemed tired and was already in a sleeping mode.

As soon as the bus began to run, Masaki decided to get off her chest what was hurting her.

“Ayumin...I...I must tell you I mailed Yassan when she was away last month...” The younger girl began cautiously.

“You were worried about her?” Ayumi asked casually with a soft smile to draw her generation mate out.

“Of course! Yassan seemed so preoccupied since Minishige-san’s graduation! She’s sad and I struggle to make her laugh...” Masaki confessed with a pout on the face. Without a doubt, the eccentric Juuky member felt upset and frustrated.

“Sayashi-san is our ace and a senpai now. She has more pressure on her shoulders than ever. This must be very difficult and exhausting on a daily basis, you know...”

“But Yassan doesn’t talk to me about her problems anymore! Before Minishige-san’s graduation, it happened from time to time but now it’s finished! She keeps everything packed in herself and it’s not good!” Masaki suddenly got angry.

“I know...I noticed changes in her behavior too...” Ayumi confessed while looking at her hands resting nervously on her lap.

“When she was away due to exhaustion, I asked her if she had decided to graduate and she just answered me to not make decisions for her but she never said clearly that she doesn’t intend to graduate!” Maachan explained on an indignant tone.

“Maa, you must calm down. I can’t imagine Sayashi-san graduating from Morning Musume after only five years in the group. She’s very young and her dream was to become leader, remember!” Ayumi tried her best to convince her generation mate and herself with a very faint voice. She was now very pale.

“But I can’t help being scared Ayumin! What should I do if she leaves? Yassan can’t give up, she can’t leave me! It’s impossible...” Masaki retorted with a strangled voice. The young girl was looking desperately at her comrade now, her eyes glittering with tears.

“Don’t say things like this Maachan!” Ayumi cut off firmly while suppressing a sob. She then took her generation mate’s hands in hers and squeezed them gently.

“We must trust Sayashi-san. She’s strong and I’m sure she’ll overcome the pressure and the burden to be the ace! But we must do our best to support her! It’s our duty since we love her, right?” The tiny girl pleaded on a soothing tone but was still fighting hard to hold back her tears.

Masaki nodded but seemed still very troubled.

“We’ll see how things evolves, ok?” Ayumi suggested on a reassuring tone this time. Since she was older, she considered it to be her duty to somehow lead the younger members and Maachan was one of them although they were the same generation.

“You’re right and if Yassan decides to graduate, I’ll curse her!” Masaki announced with conviction.

Riho suddenly sneezed hard but instantly fell asleep again. The two Juuky looked at each other and burst out laughing.

“At least, Riho stays as clumsy as ever!” they thought while wiping off their tears.

Chapter 3: My Summer of Love

-During Morning Musume summer camp, august 2015-

Sakura entered in the kitchen to find Ayumi struggling with the waffle iron she just broke.

“Ishida-san, it’s not very nice to ignore Sayashi-san like that...” The younger girl began on a teasing tone.

“I don’t ignore her, we talked a lot together this morning when I was cooking breakfast for her and...crap, why am I even justifying myself?! It’s none of your business Oda!” The older girl retorted on an irritated tone.

“True but you never looked at her in the eyes and you seemed quite reluctant to chat with her although she’s doing a lot of efforts to make amends. Are you still mad about her teasing on Fukumura-san? Man, you’re truly jealous! Sure, she went a little bit too far with that sweat bath story but she’s our ace, she deals with a lot of pressure every day, she’s tired and’s a way to decompress like another! It’s silly to take it seriously and to blame her for this...” Sakura explained with patience and pedagogy.

“Oda...” Ayumi growled and glared at her kouhai.

“So! You’re still angry at her and you’re fighting now with this stove…That’s not good...” The Juunichy continued like nothing, ignoring her senpai’s bad mood.

“Oda, get out of here or I promise I’m gonna kick your butt...” The Juuky threatened coldly.

“But I know what we’re gonna do! If I succeed in fixing this thing, you’ll make a move at Sayashi-san!” Sakura suggested in a giggle. The younger girl was quite proud of her idea.

“Yeah yeah, have fun and get out of here!” Ayumi cut off while giving her the stove and pushing her out of the kitchen.

The Juuky couldn’t help but roll her eyes. She always wondered how Sakura could have such silly ideas, maybe because she was hanging out too much with Maachan…

Still, she saw her kouhai coming back ten minutes later with Riho. The ace gave her back the stove with a very satisfied smile on the face. Did that mean?
Ayumi thanked her senpai shyly without looking at her. In fact, she was doing her best to hide her reddening cheeks.
Riho, still in pajama, quickly left the kitchen, embarrassed and blushing too.

“So...I won the bet!!! I told Sayashi-san that you would kiss her if she were able to fix that stove and it worked! Believe me, she was motivated!” Sakura confessed, totally delighted.

“Oda...I’m definitely going to kill you...”Ayumi threatened on a very low tone.

“Please stop, you’re scary Ishida-san!” The younger girl pleaded on a false frightened tone while doing her best to refrain from laughing.

“Bullshit!” Ayumi gritted her teeth to avoid screaming and causing quite a ruckus.

“All you have to know is that the ball is now in your court Ishida-san! Good luck! I believe in you!” Sakura announced and then trotted toward the exit while humming happily.

Ayumi stayed in the kitchen, looking incredulously at the waffle iron in her hand. Her stunned face quickly changed into a pout.

She was definitely in a very bad mood now.


-Later, after the barbecue-

As Ayumi was going back to the cottage to wash her hands and go to the bathroom, she bumped into Riho.

“Sorry Ayumi-chan! Are you ok?!” The ace cried out in panic, noticing how her short comrade stepped back nearly one meter because of the shock.

“Don’t worry, I’m ok! It’s my fault, I was too much in a hurry, sorry...” The tiny girl confessed on a reassuring tone with a bright smile.

Riho was now looking at her comrade with soft eyes and a sweet and charming smile. Ayumi was not stupid. She noticed how the girl had behaved that way toward her all day and she decided to ignore her since playing this seductive game was too embarrassing in front of cameras. But now, they were alone. It was her chance and she was well decided to take it.

“Follow me!” The older girl ordered while grabbing her friend’s hand and taking her to the empty dorm.

As soon as they entered the room, Riho couldn’t take her sight out of the futons. Her face quickly grew red.

“A...Ayumi-chan...I...I think rush things...” The ace stuttered, totally red and paralyzed.


Riho suddenly felt Ayumi’s small body against hers, her arms wrapping around her back and her head resting on her shoulder. The ace couldn’t help but hug her back tightly and tenderly. She had always loved how the shorter girl’s frame fitted perfectly with hers.

“I’m glad to have been able to fix the stove...” The younger confessed in a whisper. Satisfied and feeling comfortable, she began to giggle, a goofy smile on the face.

“You can thank Oda-chan and her silly ideas...” Ayumi whispered softly while keeping her eyes shut. The tiny girl was totally letting go, enjoying the moment to its fullest and ignoring her heart pounding madly in her chest and her blushing cheeks.

“So, it’s such a pain to just hug me?” The ace asked sadly. She seemed suddenly disappointed.

“Of course not! You’re soft and warm Sayashi-san and I...I love to...hug you...” The older girl confessed honestly. She was totally red now but still well decided to ignore it. Instead, she wondered how her cute ace could jump so quickly to conclusions.

“What a relief but I’m a little disappointed...I won’t get my prize...” Riho teased while pouting cutely.

“That’s not true, you totally deserve it...” Ayumi whispered on a soothing tone while taking the ace’s face in her hands. She then kissed her tenderly on the cheek.

“I’m glad you’re back, I missed you...” Ayumi confessed in the girl’s ear.

“Thank you.” Riho answered softly with a sweet smile. The ace was clearly moved by her comrade’s confession, her eyes were glittering with tears.

Ayumi never opened her eyes but heard her dance partner sniff. She instantly and naturally stroked her back to sooth her. Riho gently rested her head against Ayumi’s one and her breath slowed down, becoming steady. She finally calmed down and seemed now relaxed.

Unfortunately, this was not going to last long.

“ANUMIN!!!” A high pinch voice shouted loudly while entering the dorm.

“GAAAHHH!” Ayumi screamed in response.

The dance partners instantly and reflexively parted.

Riho looked away to hide her blushing cheeks but a happy smile was still adorning her lips. Ayumi was fully red too but too shocked to hide anything.

“Still flirting with Yassan?! Ayumin, that’s not serious!” Masaki teased with a fake shocked face.

“No, we were doing nothing!” Riho tried to defend them shyly, with a faint voice.

“That’s true!” Ayumi exclaimed, totally panicked.

“Yassan, you’ve always been a bad liar and Ayumin, I don’t believe you!” The younger Juuky retorted with disdain.

“Maa...” Ayumi growled. Her shock was quickly changing into anger.

“Listen you two, you are free to do what you wanna do to each other but I don’t want to hear any strange noises at night, kay?” Masaki announced solemnly.

“WHAT?!” The dance partners exclaimed in perfect synchronization with incredulous faces.

“I’m too young and pure to witness these types of things.” Maachan pouted while crossing her arms on her chest.

“That’s the silliest thing I ever heard!” Ayumi retorted indignantly. The poor girl was totally stunned. 

“Good luck Yassan! Go for it! Ayumin seemed to have quite a temper but she’s totally crazy about you, believe me!” The younger girl whispered with conviction in her best friend’s ear.

“Oh god...” Riho facepalmed. No doubt, Ayumi heard everything. Masaki had never been known for her discretion after all...

And their favorite little devil left the room like that, as nothing ever happened, leaving her two friends stunned, embarrassed and quite red.
