(A/N: i just can't sleep and write this simple oneshot here.




     I used to live with you, by my side that i become numb when you're gone. I used to laugh a lot with you making a fail joke, because you're there, here with me. I used to be good with other people because you said "We never know when we need them." But the only thing i need is you, but you are not here. Not anymore. So what’s the point being nice? And I close my door, i shut my eyes, I zipped my mouth. I waiting here, patiently, at the place you said 'I will always waiting for you here.' Then, each day i went there, looking for you. But there is only wind greets me, so cold. Like my feelings right now.

     Every night, I did wish, I pray for you before I sleep; that the moment I wakes up you're smiling to me again, like you always did. Every day, I chirps my usual greeting "I’m home.." with the hope you will answer me "welcome home." Yet, the only things I feel is the loneliness in every corner of the house. It felts empty without you. When will you come back? I hug your pink blanket every time i wondering of that question.

     When it is dinner, I’m always cooks your favorite dishes without onion- because you hate them so I don’t eat them too. I cook for two portions - for both of us. Imagining that you will come and sits in front of me and said "Itadakimasu." I think that view is very beautiful, how I longing for that so much. Yet, your portion never changes. You don’t touch them anymore. You weren’t here.

     You loves to sleep, you can sleep anywhere is what you always brag about.. So I set the alarm a little late.. Because I want to wake up together with you, so you can sleep longer. But every time the alarm chime - there is no point of waking up.. You’re not here. Not anymore..

     Since when i become this pathetic? I never knew I can be this pitiful without you. I don’t see any point of keep living, but your vivid smile keeps me from dying even I’m already dead inside. I wish you are here to wake me up, take my hand and we will play in the rain together like you always wanted to. Why did I restrain you when you want to do that? I'm stupid to think that you will always and forever with me. Am I? I guess so, because here at the same place i keep waiting for you. Will you ever wake up from death and say my name?


      I look up as I hear my name being called. I look to her face; she has a very familiar soothing voice. Like her, but i can't see her face, the sun rays burning my eyes. So I just look down again. Not bother to answer her.

        "How are you today?" She asks me softly while sitting on my side. I look away but she touched my right shoulder. I feel warm by the touch. It feels so familiar.

      "Why don't you look at me?" She touched both of my shoulder and hugged me from behind. I feels time was stopped, just for me and her. I want to enjoy this familiar hug a little longer.

        "I miss you a lot. Reika miss you, Wakaa.." I can hear her stutter between her sobs. Is she crying? It is very familiar habit before her crying. I want to look at her, but i scared. I scared of to be turned down. If this is merely my imagination again; if she would vanished before my eyes. But her cry feels so real and familiar.

       I touch her hand and bring it into my grips. I feel warms and real. I turned my body, finally facing her. I can see her; smiling but crying. She looks so happy despite having tears on her eyes. She smiles when I wipe her tears.

        "Don't cry Reika. I'm here.." I saw her nodded. I smiles, she is real.

        "I'm here to take you home. Let’s go home." She smiles but I can she is hurt. I don't know why. I take her hand, and kissed it.

        "I miss our home." I said and she nods again.

        "Me too. And i miss you so much.." She stands up and takes my hand to follow her. I willingly walked from her back. She then seated me on a wheelchair, which I sat on it happily. She pushed me after she kisses me in my cheeks. It feels so warm.

        I looks around, even we are the same here; wearing the same white outfit from head to toe.. I think I’m the happiest person in here. They're happy but I’m the happiest person, I can't wait to go home. I can't wait to cook for our dinner, to set the alarm late, to chirps that "I’m home" and she would return with "okaeri."


         I always watch you from a far. I can see you're spacing out on the same bench you sit for almost 3 years.

         For the first time, I wonder.. How we can end up in this situation? And you, being sent in here with a status 'insane people'. I hate person who gives you that title. How can they say you're crazy when you just sit still on the same place while feeling for warm but cold breeze by yourself.

         I don't know if my feeling still the same, but I feels hurt seeing you like that. Time is moving but you still holding to the past. I know, you still can never forgive yourself. For what had happen to us 3 and half years ago.

        We once to be said as the happiest couple in the world. I love you, and you love me. Too much that I can feel you bath me with all your care, loves and kiss. We never argue with each other, when I dislike one thing you readily accept them. You always lost in me. I want us to have some quarrel like a usual couple always did but then we will come to term without us knowing.

         I wish you will scold me when I almost burn the kitchen in the morning, I want you to wake me up earlier with your nagging, I wanted you grumble at me when I don't cook dinner for us. But you just give in me. I wonder, is this what we always called love?

         Then I said we are over. You just think I’m kidding. You won’t believe my words; you just wanted to hear good things of me. I went furious and keep saying I hate you, I don't love you anymore. I find another man, and sleeps with him. But you still said, "Don't make stories" and just keep driving. It was okay until I show you our picture- me and the man. Sleep together.

         You're shock. Too shock that you hit the break all of the sudden. I can see you burning eyes, I can see you're hurt with all the betrayal I’ve done.

          I said again, clear and smooth. “Let’s break up.!” You went silent, i can see tears on your eyes, wait to flows down. I averted my sight aways from your brown eyes, that time i see a car coming from your back. Crushing us in the middle. The last thing I remember is, you're smiling and mouthed the words of persuasion "It is okay, I’m here." You hold my hand tightly. It is not you who are hurt that time, it is me. I never want it to be ended this way.

          You condition is very bad. You are unconscious for almost five months. But me? I just have a small scratch. It is you who are always protect me from harm, while I’m hurting you the most. Maybe it is better I’m who is gone. You can live better without me; even I can do nothing without you.

          That time, when we were in love.. Deeply in love, you would come to me and kiss me when I’m hurt of not passing my exam. You said, I can do it again. So I keep my strong self, because you are here. I miss your smile and your dimple when you look at me with eyes full of love.

          I guess this is the price I need to pay for my selfishness?

          I watched you when you wake up from your deep long sleep. I'm happy that I’m crying. I want to be there, celebrate this happiness but I think you hate me now.

          I see you emotionless face when the doctor said, "She is dead." I'm dead. I make myself dead. I can't help myself not to hurt you again, not after my stupid acts.
          I can see you still not crying after doctor declared my death. I guess you're happy? Are you mad for what I did to you before? That a little feeling just disappear from your heart.

         I want to cry, tears of regret. I wanted to run to you and said "It is my entire plan. I still love you; I lied to you when I said I sleep with him." But I can't, I hold myself from doing that. Because I’m literally dead to you.

         I wish, you'd at least cry for my lost, yet I’m the one who is wailing badly for loosing you and your sincere love.

         Still, after two months of my death.. I'm watching you from a far. Deep here, I hope I can see your tears so I know... you still love me, you’re sad that I’m gone. But you're not...

Until the doctor said, you lost your insanity. You're literally not alive. You're dead inside when you know I’m dead. Again, I’m crying. I'm crying badly when I saw they sent you to the home of insane people.

         I want to prevent them from taking you away from me, but it is me who take you from yourself. I'm bad girl and I know so I distancing myself from you.

         I’m watching you from a far again. How you always sits on the same bench without doing nothing. I look into your brown eyes. That is the time I realized that, you have this lonely eyes; that you're wishing me to come back as I wish for you to come to your sanity. You have this hope in your eyes, have a little dream in your eyes, your eyes is dry.. Always dry, drier than the last time I saw. You never cry after that incident- is what I suddenly remember.

         "She loves you so much." A doctor said when I intensely watching you. I just smile, I’m never forgetting that.

          "She even calls for your name in her sleeps." I want to cry again. This is too much, what I have done to you?

          "She loves you from the bottom of her heart that she deleted all the bad memories from her head. She just remembers the good things. And she remembers; she still loves you."

          I smiles bitterly upon what the female doctor said. Yes, the last time I remember. You still loves me a second after i hurt you. For the first time, I approach you. I walk close to you, the closest i ever try in these three and half years. I glued my eyes onto your immobile body. You're counting the sand on your feet. They're just infinity for you to count. That is our loves too.

         "Wakatsuki-san" I call for your name, with my usual happy tone. This is the first time I mention your name after years. I see you finally look up. I smile when I see your face; you've got thinner since the last time I remember. Then you look down again.

         "How are you today?" I ask as I sit by your side. I can feel your cold body. I turned to you, but you look away.

         "Why don't you look at me?" I touched your cold hard shoulder and hugged you from behind. You feel so cold, but i miss you so much that I can't endure these tears anymore. I sob on your shoulder. I wish you would say your magic words once again.

         "I miss you a lot. Reika miss you a lot, Waka." I finally confess sincerely. I still hugged her from behind when I feel her cold hard hand reaching for mine. I feel you hold them tightly. You then turned to me. I'm happy when I can finally watch your face at this distant. I miss you so much Waka. And I cry with happiness.

         "Don't cry Reika. I'm here." I nodded. I know. I can feel you. She smiles while wiping for my tears. I'm happy. I'm happy to see your smiles again after years.

         "I'm here to take you home. Let’s go home." I finally said why I’m here. Hope that you would love to follow me home. She reaches for my hand and kisses it. God, don't take this happiness from me again, I promise I won't betray this love again.

         "I miss our home." I heard your words, almost a whisper. I nodded. Yes I know me too.

         "Me too. And I miss you so much.." I stands up and takes her hand, makes her follows me before I seated her on her own wheelchair, I kissed her cold cheeks before pushing her through the people with white clothes.

          "I'm sorry, I take a lot of time to meet you, to take you home." I said. She shakes her head slowly, denying my words.

          God, don't take this love from us again. I promise to take care of her until she become normal again. I will bathe her with my unlimited loves like she did before. Please, I’ll never ask more than this again - Let us to be in love forever

(A/N: So how? I attempt to write a romantic one but, idk if this is counts as one?

I was a little bit scared to read this since the title make it sounds like they’re not in love anymore. a way it was  :on speedy:
Reika, you cruel person! What were you thinking??  :angry:  How could you do that to someone who loves you so much. Too much even.
Captain better makes Waka the happiest person after they’re back. What she did is pretty much unforgivable, but she got her second chance because Waka is just that kind and too in love with her (to the point she forgot the bad memories)
I think this is probably counts as angst with a happy ending. But that’s me.
 :mon geek:  Author, why you do this to WakaRei, huh?  :lol:

Post by: Kairi65 on September 09, 2016, 02:34:32 PM
Dear author-san, never...i repeat, NEVER write this kind of story without a "danger ahead" warning! You totally killed me halfway through the story.. the pain, oh, the pain... :bleed eyes:
Post by: wakaten on September 10, 2016, 10:33:51 AM
@C: did you? i just thinking of that idea while humming a song with that title. i'm sorry if I broke everyone's heart by write this kind of story. I'm sorry!  :bow:
yeah why I'm doing to my favorite couple? Idk...  :frustrated:

@ミサキ: Ahahh what's wrong with that emoticon? did i really made you cry? well I'm sorry again. I'll cover them up later, I want to make a good story for WakaRei too.  :nya:

@Kairi65: Olllaaa,, I didn't know that I'm capable of killing you. my mistakes, well that simply because when I'm writing this, I'm emotionless when I reread again so I don't feel what you feel  :mon ko: I guess I need to add the warning? Thanks for giving me that precious suggestions. But a prob is, I don't know what kind of story will make people dying halfway there... :mon sweat: (I'm emotionless most of the time)  :mon suspect:
Post by: DeNight on September 12, 2016, 04:28:46 PM
It did broke my heart a little.
But, I like how it turned out :)
Well, in the real world, sometimes, being too permissive may make your girl think that you don't love her.
Or, it will bored her out of her mind.
And bored people sometimes do stupid things just to see if life can be more interesting after that
Only to regret them later on...
So, thank you for this fic, Author-san.
Hope you'll write more :)

If I’d thinking back of our time, to actually find our starting line.. Maybe, it all started when we become roommates. Two people with different personalities, meet in one room where it becomes our starting line.

What do you can expect when a person like south meet someone like north? You can't expect something harmony like egg in hot rice with some soy sauce in it. But, this is how they started. Undefined terms of R.O.O.M.M.A.T.E.S


It is the second time Sakurai Reika makes an application to change room in her college. The first time is when she first enters the college one year ago after two months be a residents of her former room, then she has a problem which she didn't have any choice but to transfer to other room.

Unfortunately, her new roommate is a tomboy or in other simple word is lesbian. Reika named her that because of her appearance and more obvious is, her roommates always bring her girlfriends home. So she decide for the last time, that she gonna used the last chance to change room again. That’s defined how she hates someone who acts so hard to be someone else, not even accepting their nature as a girl or boy.

So here she is, in her new room waiting for her new roommates. The rooms are not really big but not really small. Enough space for two people. They have their own single bed, both at the sides of sliding door at the balcony. There is also a small tv facing her bed and big bathroom near the entrance. She loves the interior as it facing the lake in the college and have small balcony. Her new room also on the third floor which not too high to climb the stairs when the lift is unavailable.

Reika waits for her new roommate while repacking all her belongings to their place. But, a person like her who is very ponkotsu and love to sleep not really care about the arrangements of her things. So when she felt tired, she simply let them lying on the floor and went to sleep. Planning to have short nap to recover her energy, she can continue her works later.

Worry that her roommates would come anytime; she wrote a simple and short message on the mirror using her lipstick before she takes a short nap.

"Nice to meet you. I'm Reika." The message contains all her happy feelings to accept new comer. She actually can't wait to meet her normal roommates - her longtime dream since she enter this college. But you know, world nowadays not that stable, and she hates that kind of unnecessary changings where male become females and otherwise.

10 minutes after Reika falls into her deep sleeps, someone came in with bag pack on her back and a luggage in her hand. But when she saw a person is sleeping on the bed, she tiptoeing into the room. But that is not the only reason she tiptoeing, the room is too messy anyway for her to even find space that enough for her feet to walk normally. She shakes her head to all the messiness on the floor. And the sleeping owner too.

Unlike Reika, this new person is really meticulous. Not that meticulous, but she can't see and live with all those lying things on the floor. So, she rolled up her sleeves and start tidying all the things that not even belong to her. Her face however doesn’t even showing any slightly annoyance, a sincere smile was placed there instead. She is someone who loves cleanliness and tidiness.

The moment she starts cleaning the room is the time she saw the message on the mirror. She cannot help but smiling widely. So her roommate’s name is Reika, she remarks that in her head. She took the lipstick on the table, probably belong to Reika; her new roommates. She replied to the message with grins on her face.

"Nice to meet you too. Wakatsuki. :)" The message ended with a smiley, really showing off her real feelings right now that she doesn’t expect this kind of warm welcome with messy room but cute and funny message. She smiles to herself.

And of course, for a person like her, she didn't need to take hours of cleaning and packing all the things include her belongings. 50 minutes later, she finished everything, Reika’s belonging was arranged neatly in her cupboard and on the table, she makes sure that there are no single dust on the table; so same also with her things. She smiles brightly while dusting off her hand, satisfy with her job today even she feels little tired. She glances to the person who is still sleeping like a log, not even moving or showing any signs of waking up. She sighs wearily while looking to the clock, it reaching 7 pm.

Wakatsuki moves closer to the other sides of bed to look at her new roommate's face. She supports her chin using her hand on the sides of the bed slowly, very cautious not to wake up Reika from her sleeps. She knew that, a person’s mood could be disaster when wake up from sleep, anyone would be monster if their sleeps was distracted.

She leans forward in order to look clearly to Reika’s face. Moreover the room a little bit dimmed since it almost night on the outside. Wakatsuki plays with Reika’s hair that falls on her faces, she smiles deviously when Reika squirming from her action.

"Mou.. don't kiss me." Not only feels ticklish, Reika even talking in her sleeps too. What is she dreaming about only her know that. But that talk make Wakatsuki cannot hold her laugh anymore, she close her mouth using her hand, but still the chuckles can be heard.

Feels distracted with the mysterious laugh, Reika open her eyes a bit. To her shock that when she open her eyes, Wakatsuki's face is so close to hers’ that their nose brushing with each other. The small touch makes her jumping from the bed.

Wakatsuki also get shocked from Reika’s high notch screams and she falls to the floor bumping her head to the walls. "Ahh ittai yoo."

Reika's eyes went wide when she saw the person who is now on the floor, rubbing her head. "Who are you? Are you tomboy?!" She cannot contain her curiosity and go bluntly asking such private question.


But the other person is too confused to even digest the root of the question. Reika's eyes scan all over Wakatsuki's body. From head to toe, she observed with her squinting eyes. Feeling insecure, Wakatsuki stands up and back off two steps.

"Ahhh I see, you're tomboy." Reika give her final judgement based on her observation. Short hair with boy haircut styles, old jeans with some holes on the knee, some chained on her jeans, she had enough of evaluation from her looks.

"Chotto matte.." Wakatsuki was clearly taken aback by the term given to her. Her face shows some dissatisfaction. This is the first time people dared to label her something. Not just that, this is their first meeting and this is all happening. It is not like she cannot accept that but the other girl is too rude. To judge her from her outer appearance, give her some unacceptable title then walk off when she is still talking. Even there is little bit glad in her hearts that this girl being honest with her feeling, too honest to be truth. But well, yeah… she feels hurt.

"Jaa. Let me being honest. I don't like people like you." Reika shows some annoyance on her face. She reached for red tape from her desk then goes to the end of the room. She taped them on the floor, right in the middle of sliding door as a start and she pulled them right over the main door, just giving a little opening for her new roommate to enter the bathroom. She is now setting up a clear boundary between them. While the other girl just watching all of Reika’s action with unbelievable eyes.

"Since I came here first. This is my area and that is yours." Reika pointed to the other side of the boundary which clearly smaller than hers. Wakatsuki stand stills with wide eyes but when Reika give her look ‘you're on my area’ that remind of Wakatsuki that she in wrong side; she is then quickly jumps over from Reika's area into her area.

"Now.. Don’t come in here unless it was needed." Reika concluded all her action with her cold words while turning her back to Wakatsuki.

"Hurmm I'm new here. So what is the regulation here?" Wakatsuki asked cautiously. Careful not to make the other girl become crazy.

"You can do what you want, just don't get caught." Reika answer sluggishly as she continue to lie on her bed, trying to sleep again.

"Can I cook using rice cooker?"

"Urm basically you can’t. But if you don't get caught then it's okay." Reika mumbles in between her words. Have no intention to answer the other girl question properly. She has enough; she can’t think anymore that she actually run from a tomboy just to meet a tomboy. Once again! Now how should she explain to her mom? That her new roommate once again a tomboy, not to mention she is quite handsome, but yeah that doesn’t change the facts. And, her mom is the biggest protester of this gender blend people. She hates that the most. Always saying to her that don’t involve with that kind of people.

"Can I listen to music? Can I sing?”

Reika is trying to sleep again when she heard numerous unimportant questions from her new roommate. She sighs harshly then turns to the other girl once again. Her eye is in fire. Wakatsuki withdraw a step, feeling fear with Reika's eyes.

"I can't tolerate with noise. So please keep the voice and volume low. And please, be quiet." Reika jerks to the other girl and Wakatsuki once again taken aback, bury all her intention to be close with Reika. She nod furiously then keep silent while sitting on her bed and starts humming songs.

Reika rolled her eyes, obviously feeling annoyed with the sounds. It is in low volume but she still can listen to it and cannot accept it either. It disturbing her, not only that… she hates everything about her. But what can she do? She used all the chance to change room, just to meet another weird people. Why her life always miserable? Now, she only needs to lie to her mom that her daughter met a good roomy, a normal and beautiful one. Not the weird, tomboy and handsome girl. She will be killed and will be dragged to home if she said that to her mom. Though she feels sorry, but of course she doesn’t want to waste her another one last year here just to argue with her mom.

Just hold on for one more year. Reika reassure herself.

And that is how they start. With a clear boundary, Reika never gives Wakatsuki any chances to get close to her. Never fails to find mistakes in Wakatsuki, even when she makes a slight noise, Reika will get angry, not to mention that she even limits the girl movements in the room. Just imagine that when Wakatsuki wants to play games on the tv that in Reika's area and Wakatsuki need to sit right beside the line, careful not to step in the other area, she play with headphone her on, being cautious not to make the other girl mad again but Reika still mad because her movements when playing game is distracting her even if Wakatsuki on her back but it is like she has an eye behind her head; watching all the movements of the girl.

However, Wakatsuki never once complained about her fussy roommate. She keep continue her days interestingly. Well, she finds the other girl quite interesting. Reika loves fish, but she loves plants. They’re quite opposite, but she knew deep inside Reika, she is kind person. Like when she is talking to her fish about how hungry she is that night. Well the facts that she loves fish and all kinds of animal that live is amazing enough to tell that Reika is nice girl, moreover she major in fishes courses where she pursue what she loves passionately. To make more clear difference between them, Wakatsuki loves every kind of plants that is why she choosed to study in plant courses.

Cut all the crap, she still has lists of Reika kindness, emm not really kindness but the small things she like about Reika. Like when Reika hold her stomach not to growl badly when she cooks and smells spread all over the space in their room. But of course, Wakatsuki is not a mean person; she shared everything she has with Reika hoping that the girl would leave a little space for her to befriend.

Even they always bickering with each other, err scratch that – even Reika always gone mad to Wakatsuki for no reason, she always cooks for two portions, to Reika and herself. She would always wake up and tidying Reika’s bed if the girl already missing to her class – she only can step into Reika territory only when she is not there and Wakatsuki absolutely can’t stand messiness. Doing that kind of job, Wakatsuki never ever dislike it, yet she loves it. But still, miraculously, Wakatsuki never step into the boundary well at least not when Reika is there, she keeps herself from invade into Reika’s area even she had to tiptoeing to go outside the balcony and bathroom. She didn’t mind it.

Not to forget about how she treat her other two friends, they are the only two Wakatsuki often see together with Reika. Sometimes, she has this strange feeling that doubted why Reika didn’t like her but she still can be friend with Iko-chan; boy who act girlish and enjoy stalking people more than paparazzi but Reika never treat her more than her enemy. Reika hates her too much that she didn’t even let her other two friends enter the room when she is there.

“Nee Reika..” Wakatsuki calls when they incidentally meet in the college. They’re going to opposite way and Reika; as usual act like they don’t know each other.

Reika however, this time cannot hold her policy to not response any attempts Wakatsuki’s made. Well, maybe because this the first time Wakatsuki dared to approach her at the outside. But yeah, response to this doesn’t mean she drop their line.

“Can you show me Fukagawa’s Café?” Wakatsuki timidly asked Reika. She didn’t even expect her to turn back when she calls earlier. “I need to send this plant to her.” She shows the box contained seedlings from her father’s farm back in their hometown.

Reika went silent while scanning the other girl. She has this evil smiles on her lips before she decide to speak. “I can’t I have class.” She answers coldly. Wakatsuki looked down, obviously feels disappointed from the rejection. Reika hide her cunning smiles behind all her cold tone.

“But sure, I could give you direction to the café. It is just at the back of Environmental Faculty.” She creates a bright smile on her lips once she saw the other girl turn brighter upon her words. “You just need to walk straight about 50 meters, and then turn left when you found a small tree at your right. Walk down the garden about 20 meters before you find a street light, then once again, make a left turn. You will find the café once you see a small pond.” Reika gives the direction like she has memorized them in her head. She is still smiling when Wakatsuki makes a faces of trying hard to remember the confusing instruction.

“Walk straight, turn left at the small tree, walk the garden and turn left at the street light. The café are in front the fond.” Wakatsuki repeat the words by herself, not to notice that Reika are trying hard to hold her laugh. “Ahh thank you, Reika. I will inform you once I found them.” Wakatsuki bow as sign of gratitude. She smile widely, still doesn’t believe that Reika willingly help her, not to tell that this is the first time the other girl treat her nicely after one month they become roommates.

They both exchange bow of respect before parting as their path are completely opposite. Once Wakatsuki turn her back, Reika close her mouth tightly, try hard not to be heard laughing by Wakatsuki. While Wakatsuki is try hard to remember the path in her head. She even walks with head look up the blue skies and not to notice Reika’s naughty looks to her.

And of course, Wakatsuki won’t find her way to the café that just at the back of Environmental Faculty since all the direction given by Reika are completely just to fool her. Yet, Wakatsuki still mutters the direction in one breath. “Turn right, and then walk on the bridge when you found a pond with clear water.” But of course, after three hours of wandering all the college, the directions turn into something more indescribable. She confusing herself when she start believing in Reika’s words that not even once are right, she didn’t meet a small tree but she still take a left turn even there are just bushes. She is like walking around the bushes.

Wakatsuki sigh wearily. Feeling tired after walking three hours nonstop just to find café that supposed to be near with big box in her hand. She is now sitting by the lake with little water fountain in the middle since it is the only place that have light even it is quite dim. It already night, almost reaching 8, and Wakatsuki totally lost about her whereabouts. She wants to go back, but she can’t find her way to the hostel, her phone also died an hour before. So she just sits on the box while staring at the dimmed sad half-moon. The moon looks so sad with small reflection of light by the sun. Like her right now.. She sighs for nth times. The most unbelievable thinks occur to her is, how can she believes Reika just like that after one month being roommates and she all received are cold treatment from girl called Sakurai Reika? Now she can accept her old friend’s word that Wakatsuki is just being nice dense girl.

“Cannot find your way to the café?” Reika knows the answer but still asking the obvious question. She appeared from Wakatsuki’s back just to laugh hard at Wakatsuki’s stupidity to believe her words.

Wakatsuki just keep silent. Sulking with all the stupid jokes Reika made. She is not in the mood to be kind. She looks away when Reika jump into her sight, not to give the other girl chance looking at her horrible face. She is tired and hungry.

“Hahaa, are you sulking right now?” Reika still with her dry laughs, celebrating her success in trolling with Wakatsuki. “Jaa.. now, how about I treat you a cake?” She squats in front of Wakatsuki with both hand supported her chin. She fished Wakatsuki with her bright blinking eyes and crystal white teeth. No one ever fail to not fall with her flirting face like right now.

Wakatsuki once taken aback by the offer but she is being careful not to fall into same trap again. She gazed into Reika’s face at the corner of her eyes but all she could see is a beautiful since smile which she never saw before.

“But you must lead me to the café first.” She tries to negotiate, still wanted to go to Fukagawa’s café. She can see Reika is nodding few times before she stands up and get ready to walk - but of course, Wakatsuki still cannot gather all her courage to follow the other girl, they might be ended up somewhere else and Reika would laugh at her once again.

“Oh come one.. believe me this time..” Reika is back after she realized that she walk alone and pulled Wakatsuki’s hand, forcing the other girl to stand and follow her.

Wakatsuki, on the other hand are clearly flustered by the touch on her hand. Reika she knew before are too absurd by her own thinking that people like her (who looks tomboyish) are some kind of disgusting and she won’t or ever touch her. But tonight, not mention that she apologize first; well not as direct I’m sorry but by offering her cake, Wakatsuki knew that the usual cold and tsundere Reika is actually apologize, and she also the first to make moves to her. Is she just dreaming?

They arrived at the café two minutes later, proving Wakatsuki’s thought that she is being trolled by Reika this evening, but she gladly forgets all of that once they step into the café full of cakes. Reika just proving herself that is the kind person by fulfilling her promise to lead their way to the cafe. Wakatsuki now have a clear mindset about how Reika really is, she is trust-able person.

“Gonbawa aunty..” Wakatsuki bow as a respect once her eyes meet with her beautiful tall aunt. Fukagawa Mai is her aunty but she is not as old as an aunty should be. She is still in her twenties, waiting to enter her thirty, but for sure she looks young like a teenager.

“Ahh Waka.. You finally gonna meet me after one month being here?” Mai welcomed Wakatsuki with her warm hug and rubs on her back. Wakatsuki cannot help but to grin as much as she could. “And who is this beautiful girl?” Mai smiles to Reika, notice that her niece come with some beautiful girl. “Is she your girlfriend?” She whispers into Wakatsuki ear but it still can be heard by Reika who is then just clearing her throat with small cough.

“Chigauyoo.. she is just a roommates.” And the claimed was denied by the fact. They’re just roomies. Reika nod with agreement.

They’re roommates.

“Alright, have your seats, today is my treat. You can have your favorite cakes as much as you want Waka.” Without looking at her niece, Mai screams on her way into the kitchen.

Listens to the offer, Wakatsuki lifted her left eyebrows with proud smile pestering on her lips. She didn’t need Reika to treat her but she could use her treats earlier as a chance to get to her one day. Irritated by Wakatsuki's act, Reika jeered at her and Wakatsuki will just laugh.

They were served with cappuccino and slices of cakes three minutes later. As they sit on the balcony, they can see the entire bright star on their head and hearing the sound of water flow into the lake clearly. It is such harmony environment when nobody take charge to talk to each other, they just enjoying their little time together before they was disrupted by Mai’s present.

“Waka, wanna sing together? I have new songs.” Without waiting any answer, Mai gladly gives the medium size of old guitar to her niece. Wakatsuki grinning widely, don’t even reject the offer, she gladly accept the guitar and walk into the stage that was prepared with two stools for them. She starts tuning the guitar before adjusting the microphone to right position.

Reika sat on her place while waiting patiently for Wakatsuki to sing. She always heard Wakatsuki humming a song, it is nice, she can’t deny that but she always react negatively and coldly towards it just because she can’t accept that she was wrong about her roommate. 

Did you ever know? That someone
Has been looking at only you everywhere?
Keeping you as a strength for her heart every day
Doing so for so long

If I could be near you
I’d tell you and let you know
Making eye contact with me, deep down inside
You’d understand the meaning

Do you see the reflection in my eyes? Do you see yourself in there?
Do you understand what I’m feeling?
I’ve been looking at you for so long, do you know?
I’ve never looked at anyone else anywhere else
I only want you to turn and look at me,
Making eye contact just one time is enough

Just tell me with your eyes
Whatever you’re thinking let me know
I don’t wish for us to walk the same path,
Just for you to understand

I want you to know and understand
I want you to remain the strength of my heart
To keep the many good feeling
To keep you alone forever

With Mai as her side guitarist, Wakatsuki sings with all her heart, however never fails to make eye contact with Reika. Her gaze never breaks for even one second, like she sing the song just to her not to other person. She smiles sweetly to Reika and can see that she blushing slightly. How can Reika hide that shy side of her all this time? Maybe they never has proper eyes contact to even realizes that Reika actually a girl with girlish attitude? Wakatsuki at least can say that because each time she tries to talk to her using her eyes, Reika avoid it shyly. Would she ever understand this heart? Feels tired of all the treatments, all she want is to be friend. Since the beginning she feels betrayed by the judgement Reika gave to her, and she work hard to deny all of that. She return all the cold treatment into warms one. She takes everything that Reika’s give to her as her strength. Just like the song she sang just now. But, would it reach Reika?

Reika can feel strong pangs on her heart. She feels ashamed of herself every time Wakatsuki make eye contact with her. And not to mention that; the song explained everything and she starts questioned her own self. Why she treat Wakatsuki differently from her male friend that loves to be a girl? How their case is so different? Or maybe she just avoid from fall too deep into Wakatsuki warm character despite all her cold acts? Wakatsuki never complained, is what she still remember until now. Wakatsuki would always return her mad screams with a smile and warm soup. In the morning, even she didn’t told that she really hungry, Wakatsuki gladly left a big portion of chicken porridge to her. And she can't deny the help Wakatsuki always give to her each morning, she knew that the other girl always tidying her bed but she kept it silent, not even wanted to thank or apologize, because to her Wakatsuki is at fault that she even dared to step into her area when she isn’t there. Is it amazing how a person could do that, even she was treated way to different? Now she knows that.. She cannot judge a person from their cover and her mom opinions about ‘bad people’ are totally wrong. For the first time ever, she return Wakatsuki’s warm smile with sincere apologize gazes. She accepts her lost in proving she is right and Wakatsuki is wrong.

I’ve watched the movie and the sequel.
I’m finding it hard not to laugh at Reika here  XD  Reika, please, you’re like the captain of all things gay especially when it comes to your Wakachuki.
I like that Maimai is the aunt because she can play guitar for real.
I can’t wait to see Reika turning gay for Waka  :lol:
Post by: wakaten on October 08, 2016, 07:14:53 AM

   After dinner at Fukagawa’s café, they return to the dorm; walking side by side. No one ever talked since they’ve been alone. Reika looks like in deep thinking, looks so hesitating to talk. Wakatsuki just being usual silent like Reika always wanted her to be.

   “Ne, Waka.” Reika finally decided to talk. She can’t keep herself being so curious after all.
“Hurmm.” Wakatsuki stops and turn to Reika. They’re facing each other with Reika looks down to the ground before looking up and meeting eyes with her roommates and spoke up.
“Are you really a lesbian?” A very straightforward question. Reika still cannot help herself from not thinking about it. She hates that kind of people who trying hard not to be themselves, hates how bad the social nowadays and the ecosystem itself is damaging. She can see the trends just from her surroundings. Like Wakatsuki herself. But who know that she actually wrong? She might be not wrong, but people have their own way and thinking. If Wakatsuki might be one of the kinds she hates, still Wakatsuki is kind and nice which she saw it every day. She acknowledges her kindness.
“Hurmm..So tell me, how tomboy and lesbian are? I don’t know what the term actually for.” Wakatsuki don’t even flinches for the sudden question. Because she know where the root of question is. Reika afraid of that kind of people, for what reason, she doesn’t know.

   Reika have a short thinking about that before open her mouth. “Well, they’re like you.” She pointed to Wakatsuki with her eyes. “Like you’re right now, didn’t feminine at all and have girlfriends.” She stops right there. “Sometimes they’re very gentlemen like they’re real men. They’re manly too.”

   “Yes, I don’t look like girls, but I don’t like girls too.. And I’m not so manly too. So who am I then?” She asked.

   “Do you ever have someone you love?”
    Wakatsuki shakes.

   “Ever likes someone?” Shakes again.

   “Both men and women?”


   Reika silent by the answer and have a short thinking. “So do I.” She can’t give the real answer and continue walking, Wakatsuki followed her by slightly behind.

   “But if I like someone, like to speak with.. Like to play with.. And like to be with. But if she’s a girl.. Does that makes me tomboy and lesbian?” Wakatsuki catches Reika’s step which far forward than her. “Will that change the meaning of being myself, Reika?” She stops Reika’s step and makes the other girl face her. But it only for second. Reika continues to walk again.

   “I still like to play game, like to cook.. That’s the real me..” She stops her words; try to find some missing words. “What about my other elements of mine.. Will anyone see them?” She stops behind Reika again. “Will they view me otherwise? Other than tomboy and lesbian?”

        So do the other girl, the words makes her stops from moving. She looks to Wakatsuki, feels a pang on her chest. Because Wakatsuki words makes her realizes, ‘this is how she view the girl’ when the only person who know Wakatsuki inner self is her. But Reika didn’t have anything to say so she stays silent.

        But the sky didn’t read the environment between two people. It rains soon after that, heavy rain so both of them starts running to the dorms. They laugh without they knowing, Wakatsuki hold Reika’s hand unconsciously and bring the other girl close to her. Without words, Reika tighten the grips and they run side by side.

        They reached the dorms five minutes later and all drenched by rain droplets. Reika smiles the brightest smiles she has to Wakatsuki. The other girl replies with a grin. They might be drenched but they do feel happy.

        It is not only raining, but the thunder also strikes soon after that. Couples of thunders fighting with each other without knowing that Reika is actually afraid of thunder so she hugged the girl besides her tightly and close her ears; not wanting to hear those frightening sounds. Her body trembled.

        Wakatsuki cannot help but to grin even wider. She wraps her arms around Reika’s body; hoping to lessen the afraid insides her. “Are you scared of thunder?” She asks and smiles again when she feels a slight nod from the girl.

        “Yes. And normally the dorm will be blacked out very soon.” Reika adds, not realizes Wakatsuki flinches and her eyes widen; she scared of darkness.

        Like lights can hear the words from Reika, everything turns black. All the lights at the dorm were off. Black out. Wakatsuki cannot hold herself but to scream louder than Reika used to be, she hugs Reika tighter. If before she hugs to calm the girl, now she hugs Reika because of her own trauma.

        Receives the odd strength of hug, Reika realizes one thing. That Wakatsuki is afraid of darkness. She laughs with all her might but still hugging Wakatsuki until the thunder slowing down itself. So they just sit at the corner of the room like that, drenched and sleepy. Thunder is gone seconds ago but the lights still off. Reika stood up but Wakatsuki’s strong grips on her dress holding her up. She turns and pulled Wakatsuki together with her. Reika walks around the room to light tons of candles with Wakatsuki followed her like ducklings following their mother.

        After the room becomes brighter from the candles, they clean themselves and changes into new shirts. Again, they sit at the center of the room. Both at their own sides. Reika looking down to the lines and Wakatsuki looks to Reika, she can’t take her eyes off from the other girl.

        “Come..” Reika stands and stretches her hand to Wakatsuki who just blinked her eyes. “Light will not light up any sooner. Come, you can sleep with me.” She smiles, sincere smiles that compliment her big eyes.

        Listen to the words, Wakatsuki don’t wait any longer, she reaches for Reika’s hand. “But..” She looks to the line. If Reika is really serious, she needs to step into her territory which the things Reika’s hates the most. But Reika right now, only smiling and nodding.

        “It is okay.” She pulls the other girl, forcing Wakatsuki to enter her private space.

        That is the first time Wakatsuki step into Reika’s line with her permission and without being shouted by her. And that is how they befriend each other. With Reika lowering her own curtains and Wakatsuki happy being accepted by her.

        So they’re sleeping while hugging each other. Reika never said this but she feels comfort with the warmth she feels from the hugs. Is this the feeling when you have friends? She is someone who appreciates to be alone, not to be disturbs by other people. Even her two best friend; Manatsu and Ikoma – the weird boy who likes to act like a girl, never step into her boundary. But it is different with Wakatsuki, she feels comfortable and safe with her. Like she can show her every sides to Wakatsuki, like Wakatsuki shows her each different side she has. The Wakatsuki who love to plant small trees outside their balcony, the Wakatsuki who is very meticulous and loves cleanliness like a true girl not like Reika who is much different than her. The Wakatsuki that loves to play games and singing odd songs, not to forget the sides of Wakatsuki that she likes the most. The girl loves to cook and she is really a good cooker.


        The next morning, Reika was woken up by the noise from her phone. Too noisy that it ringing few times, the person who is calling right now must be in pinched or emergency or might be crazy as well. Wakatsuki too was waking up by the ringing. She told Reika to answer the phone.

        “Moshi mosh..” In her sleepy tones, she asked. It is Ikoma-chan. Her eyes widen to the crying sound from the other sides. Even Wakatsuki was shocked by the loud crying sound.

        “Ikoma-chan, who is that? Is that Manatsu?” Reika is concerns to the sound. Worry the states of her friend right now, she run from her bed to the outsides. Manatsu’s room is not far from her room. Wakatsuki also follow Reika, both of them still in their sleeping shirts and running in the hallway to the fuss outsides from Manatsu’s rooms. Lots of students also surround the room. Reika once again was shocked by the fuss Manatsu made from her rooms.

        Everything was a mess, lots of things was throw to the outside, the glass broke when they was smashed to the walls. Manatsu crying like a crazy girl, her dress wetted from her own tears, her mascara ruins by the tears. She is really looks like the girl who lost her lover. No one ever dared to stop the crazy girl right now. Even Ikoma-chan standing there like a statue, have no idea and courage to stop Manatsu from going mad.

        Reika wait for Manatsu to calm to not throw things to her before enter the room, looking at Manatsu state she know that her friend once again was dumped by her lover. Every time she was dumped, her mode of crazy girl will be turned on, like world end for her. Reika sighs at the sight, she always see that drama of Manatsu and cannot help but to hate. 

        But not for Wakatsuki, she can't just stand still and watch. She enter the room as fast as she could so the things not smashed to her body. Once she enter the messy space, she bring Manatsu to her chest; hug the girl tightly, not letting her to move anymore. She shushes Manatsu with light stroke on her back and letting her cry another liters of tears on her shoulder, wetting her already drenched shirt. And they stay like that for how long that no one knows.

        The crowds at the outside already gone long time ago, leaving only Reika and Ikoma both standing like a guard at the side of the door. They waiting patiently for Manatsu to calm, no words ever spokes by any one.

        “Thanks.” Manatsu thank the girl while wiping her tears finally she decides to stop crying and look upon the person who loyally hugging her from three hours ago. She looks to the person with puzzle looks. She never saw the girl before.

        “She is Wakatsuki, my roommate.” Knowing the meaning of the look, Reika introduce Wakatsuki to both of her friends. Manatsu smiles with stains on her cheeks, she reaches for Wakatsuki’s hand and grips onto it tighter.

        “I’m Manatsu.”

        Wakatsuki nods few times with smiles on her lips reveal her dimple.

        “I’m Iko-chan!” Ikoma clings onto Wakatsuki who is just nods. She know both because she always see Reika with them before with jealousy as she hopes that Reika can be like that to her too. She always questioned herself before, why Reika can accept weird guy that love to be girl like Ikoma but can’t accept her who is just true girl to be her friend. But now, they’re good. Wakatsuki smile to Reika, the smiles that only both of them know the meaning, she feels happy to be accepted by the groups. Happy that she not only accepted by Reika but have two other friends in instant.

        “Let’s go.” Reika pulls Wakatsuki’s hand and they walked off from the room, leaving Manatsu with her weird grins that who knows what the meaning behind it.

Looking at both people who now missing from the room, Iko-chan clings to Manatsu, feels giddy by the manly acts of Wakatsuki before. Who is not melting by her unexpected act? Even Manatsu is now ready to forget her stupid senior she calls loves. She ready to forget her ex now and starts planning how to get Wakatsuki’s attention and love to her.

        “She was dumped by her love. Don’t act like that to her.” Reika said once they enter the room. Wakatsuki close the door as she enters the last. “She will fall in love with anyone kind to her.” Reika pissed off. She never like that attitude of Manatsu, easy to fall in love and when she was dumped.. well, everyone  can tell that she was dumped!

        “I’m just pity to her. I can’t see girls being hurt.” Wakatsuki explains the reason for her act before.

        “Yes I know.” Reika answer weakly and lay again on her bed. She stretches her body, feels glad and fresh that today is weekend.

        Looking at the Reika’s action, Wakatsuki grins deviously. Without give any signal, she jumps into Reika’s bed and they snuggle together. They just become friends, but both feels they’ve be friend for a long time already, until it feels so normal to snuggle like that. They tease each other, play the games of pillow fight like small kids, they laugh and feel happy till they decided to modify the room a bit. Well not a bit, the whole room was modified.

        The bed that used to be at the sides of sliding door now at the area that used to be Wakatsuki’s. Both bed was joined together, makes it like a queen size. Two study tables were moved to Reika’s territory and placed side by sides. Reika’s aquarium contained her beloved pet called Popcorn now accompanied by Wakatsuki small trees named Kiddy. Tree and fish might be different kind of creatures but they’re looks like best friend and matches together when they were placed like that.

        Taking hours of modification, Reika and Wakatsuki grinned widely. They both lay on their ‘new’ bed while panting, feels tired of all works they did before and all unstopping laugh. They face each other, looking at each other’s eyes with smile stamp on their lips. Both eyes glitter from unlimited happiness.

        If before Wakatsuki used to wake up and realizes she is alone, but now, after months living together as roommates, she used to wake up with Reika by her sides. If before she used to leave porridge for Reika on their separating line, they now used to have breakfast together on the bed. The only thing that didn’t change is, it always Wakatsuki who prepares their breakfast. Not only that, if before Wakatsuki always feels jealous when she saw Reika walking together with her friends to her class, now she feels glad that she can walk with them. She loves when she now has someone to talk to. But the only person she loves to talk to is always Reika, the one she feels comfortable the most. And the sure thing is they always have lunch together at Fukagawa’s café, sometimes clingy Manatsu and weird Ikoma will join together but most of the time it only Wakatsuki and Reika.

        While for Reika, she never admits this but she love when she wake up and was served by Wakatsuki delicious meal on their bed. She loves when she could walk to class hand by hand with Wakatsuki. She loves when they have same subject to be attended together in the morning, she always loves when they have lunch together without accompanied by her two best friend, they only disturbing their times especially Manatsu; she always thought of that when she saw Manatsu being all clingy to Wakatsuki. Manatsu must fall to Wakatsuki since ever the incident in her room. She didn’t bother by Iko-chan since he is the all weird girl but Manatsu is someone who always falls in love with person who is good to her. The thing she loves the most is every time Wakatsuki leaving notes on various places like on her books, board and desk, asking about having either lunches or dinners in Fukagawa’s Café. Even if they did that almost every day, but Wakatsuki never fail to make her smile with all the notes.

        But that Friday afternoon, they were welcome by a man, waiting in front of hostels main gate. He lean to his big black car with sleeves rolled up to his arm.

        “Ahh is that Eri-kun?” Iko-chan is the first recognize Eri from afar.

        Hearing his name being mention, Eri turns and smile when his eyes found the sight of Reika. He walks closer to them; notice the interlocking hand between Reika and someone who looks tomboyish with her short hair. He can say she is girl looking at the small bulk on her chest which cannot be hidden.

        “Konichiwa Eri-kun.” Three of them bow to the tall man with good body ratios. They look like familiar with the man except for Wakatsuki. She never introduces or told by Reika about the man, so she a little timid to the man she just met.

        “This is Wakatsuki, my roommate.” Reika introduce Wakatsuki to Eri with her usual introduction. They’re roommate. Wakatsuki smiles, not her usual friendly smile this time she dislike being introduce to new people that close to Reika. Not this man. 

        “I’m Ikuta Eri, Reika’s boyfriend.” Eri stretched out his hand and take by Wakatsuki. They shake hand. Iko-chan and Manatsu cheered to Eri as the man introduced himself as Reika’s boyfriend. Reika only could gaze to Wakatsuki, checked her reaction but Wakatsuki only smile.

        “Your mom told me to fetch you for dinner tonight.” Eri told as he reaches out for Reika’s bag.

        “Hai, mom already told me about that.” Reika smiles. “Can we go now?” Reika wants quickly disappear from her friends cheering from Eri’s introduction earlier. They both more excited than her to be honest. She feels uncomfortable with that.

        Eri nod and opens the door to Reika, once again he received loud of cheer from Iko-chan and Manatsu. He smiles before missing to the other side of car and speed up soon after that.

        Wakatsuki sent Reika with her lonely eyes. This is the first time they ever separated.

        “They suit each other right Manatsu?” Iko-chan always loves to ship on the ideal couple between Reika and Eri-kun. “Handsome man with beautiful girl..” He shakes to his own imagination. Manatsu nods; agreed with Iko-chan opinion.

        “Reika’s mom blesses those two too. They’ve been together like forever.” Manatsu add, but to Wakatsuki, she is like adding fuel to the fire inside her.

        “Yeah… how weird is her mom, she calls me bad boy.” Iko-chan pouts. He also knew that how Reika’s mom hates people like him. Boys like to act girlish and girls like to act boyish.

        “It’s okay.. Iko-chan, you’re normal to me.” Manatsu pinches Iko-chan’s cheek. Well that might be true, since Manatsu is weird too, what you can expect from weird girl and weird boy?

        Without both of them notice, Wakatsuki turn back and walk away. This time she is not in the mood to have lunch. Not when Reika is absent. She walks sluggishly with her bag was dragged to the floor.

        “Oii Waka.. What wrong with sour look on your face?” Notice her niece unnatural looks, Mai ask right away after Wakatsuki came into her café that afternoon.

        Not having intention to answer the question, Wakatsuki takes her usual sit in which is the nearest to the counter. She lands her chin on the table and sighs for nth times. She lost all her appetite for today. Even when her aunt came and serves her with warm milk, Wakatsuki looks away. She doesn’t want to meet anyone for today, but she needs someone to talk to.

        “Is something happen, Yumi-chan?” Mai asks softly as she observe the girl with her caring eyes, feels worry with her niece state. “Are you fighting with Reika again?” Mai guesses. She knows that the only thing can make her niece looks like person without souls is Reika, moreover, Reika is not with her today. That makes her guess sensible.

        Wakatsuki looks into Mai eyes when she heard her name turn to Yumi, the girlish nickname that can never be unforgotten whenever she feels bad. “Reika with her family today.” She tells and takes a sip of warm milk. Mai nod, understand by answer. “A man picks her up today.” Wakatsuki told and sigh again. The sight of Reika gone with Eri still fresh in her mind.

        Listen to the answer makes Mai cannot contain her devil smiles. “So that is why you came with sour face?” She laughs but stops when Wakatsuki’s eyes piercing into her. “Are you jealous?” Mai bring her face closer to her niece and whispers. No answer yet Mai were ignored again.



        “What was relationship with Reika?” Now Mai’s tone change into serious one, she able to make Wakatsuki turn to her with wide eyes.

        “Of course friend. We’re roommates after all!” She denies whatever wild thought in her aunt mind. Why her aunt must have that thought too? She should back up her niece!

        “You want me to believe your words? When every time you came and looks like married couple, always stick with each other like husband and wife? In my eyes, both of you look more than friends.” Mai stating the facts and Wakatsuki looks away, can’t deny the reason anymore. “Now, ask you heart once again. Who is Reika to you?” Mai holds to Wakatsuki’s shoulder. 

        “Stop the nonsenses aunty, I’m a girl after all.”

        “Aishh, there a lot of people who look like you but they’re not or they don’t look like this but they’re. This is came from inside, not your characteristic. Don’t let it decides who you are, Waka. Just follow your heart.” She tells with soft voice; try to sooth the girl heart. “Ask yourself, is Reika just a friend? Or more than that? Give your heart a chance Waka, don’t regret it later.” She end it nicely before went to the counter, leaving the other girl deep into her thinking.

        Right, who is Reika to her? Why she feels burning inside when Eri picked her up earlier? And when she was introduced only as roommate? She wants to be more than that title, more than only a roommate. But what??

        That night, Wakatsuki wait for Reika near the parking lot. She might back sooner, Reika never asked to wait for her but she wait anyway. She feels lonely to be alone in the room. And like this afternoon, she is still with her thinking about what her aunt said.

        Five minutes later, a car came into the parking lot. Eri’s car. Wakatsuki watches Reika and Eri talk when they came out from a far with her sad eyes.

        “Reika, lets watch movie after this, I will pick you up.” Eri ask cautiously, he smiles widely hoping that Reika will accept his invitation.

        “Eri-kun, please don’t talks like that again.” Reika finally spokes, she never has chance to talk about this since they were in her home this evening.

        “Talk about what?” Eri lost for what Reika mean.

        “About I’m your girlfriend in front of my friends. You know I never told you that I’m your girlfriend.”

        Listen to her make Eri sigh heavily, he know his mistakes. “I’m sorry; I will never talk like that again.” He holds Reika’s hand gently and looks into her eyes. “I will wait for you to talk about it yourself.” His eyes look sad, but his tone has the hope. He never down his hope with Reika, they’ve befriend for long time already, since they were little, but for him Reika are more than just little sister. But for Reika, he is only big brother that she never has before. Reika is the only child in family so he knew that she want to be cared more since little. That is why he cared for Reika, but his care was mistaken as a brother.

        Reika smiles a little, however feels guilty by the looks insides Eri’s eyes. She didn’t want to disappoint Eri, but Eri never understand her words. Now Eri is sulking and pouting, totally taken aback by her words. “Oh come on! Don’t sulking!” And she goes again with her blinking eyes like diamond and cheerful tone; try to persuade Eri, she don’t like it when people close to her feels bad because of her.

        And since before, Wakatsuki watched everything, she might be can’t heard what they’re talking about but it looks like Eri was sulking by Reika’s words, and not to deny that she feels hurt when she looks at Reika trying hard to coax him like she used to do when they’re at the water fountain before. Wakatsuki can’t look at them anymore and she walks away with sad eyes. All the things that going in her heart right now make her more confused, is she really loves Reika? Love that more a friend should be to her friend? But they both girls.

        Reika enter the room but all she finds is darkness and Wakatsuki body on the bed, wrapped by blanket. Light was all off which is weird since Wakatsuki is afraid of darkness. She walk close to the bed and sits near to her roommate.

        “Are you sleeping? It is still early.” She whisper to Wakatsuki’s ear, try to wake up the other girl. She sighs when she receives no reaction from Wakatsuki. “Why don’t you on the lights?” She asked again, concern. Worry if something was wrong with her friend.

        “I’m having migraine; light only makes me hurts more.” Without opening her eyes, Wakatsuki answer. She is not sleeping because she can’t but she can’t look at Reika too, she feels hurt. Everything is hurt, and her head feels like she just bang to the thick brick wall. All the hard thinking makes her migraine.

        Listen to Wakatsuki’s answer makes Reika empathy to her. She never saw Wakatsuki fragile like this before. “Have you takes your pills?” She asks whilst putting her hand bag on the table, she saw the other girl nod a little with her eyes shut tightly. Somehow she feels bad looking at Wakatsuki state right now. She wasn’t here when her roommate fell sick.

        “Nee, you should know, pills are not enough to lessen the pain.” Reika climb onto the bed and sits beside Wakatsuki with her legs folded below her. “Come, lets me give you massage.” She rolled up her sleeves and holds Wakatsuki’s head softly and starts massaging her head.

        Wakatsuki just let Reika touch her head with her eyes shut off. She can’t ever reject Reika’s words so she’s enjoying every soft touch on her head. Reika stops her movements later and starts observing Wakatsuki’s face, memorizing every inch of them. Realize Reika’s immobile hand on her head, Wakatsuki open her eyes and their gaze met.

        They were so close to each other with Wakatsuki laying on the bed and Reika sits besides her looking down to Wakatsuki. Both hearts flutter so much that they unable talk. Their breaths become one that you can see their chest move in same uncontrolled tone and beat. Wakatsuki gave an assuring smile to Reika as she can see the concern in Reika’s eyes. Her hand moves to Reika’s back and pulls her closer to her. They didn’t talk but their action speaks everything. Reika didn’t even fight the urge to move closer to Wakatsuki’s face until they can feel each other breaths as their nose touching in slow motion.

        TOCK TOCKK..

        The sounds of knocking echoed in their room, waking up two people from their own world. Reika quickly pulled over, shock by her own action, not even that she is not reject or fight her own desire. She quickly run to the door and found Manatsu standing there with her pillows and blanket.

        “The air condition was off. I can’t stand with the heat.” She told Reika but her eyes run to Wakatsuki figure on the bed. “Can I sleep here?” She asked with naughty smile tucks on her wide lips.

        “Where do you want to sleep?” Reika reluctantly ask and open the door for Manatsu to enter.

        “Your bed is okay, but on Waka is better.” She whisper into Reika’s ear, don’t want Wakatsuki to hear her. Both of them know each other more than the others, from Manatsu act that likes to cling to Wakatsuki, Reika knew that her best friend already in love with her roommate.

        “Waka is having migraine right now.” She told Manatsu with her low voice, feels tired so sudden at Manatsu presence.

        “Hontoni?” Manatsu eyes widen and she runs to the bed. She sits beside Wakatsuki and start massaging her head. “Have you takes you pills?” Manatsu asks the same question but with flirting manner, Wakatsuki just nod slightly.

        Reika, however still standing on the main door, she looks away as she saw the scene of Manatsu flirt with her roommate. Seeing all of that, makes her heart aching all of sudden and she can’t stand the views. “Manatsu, that’s enough, Waka’s head is damaging right now. You can sleep on my bed tonight.” She told her best friend and pulls her away from Wakatsuki.

        That night, it is only Reika who unable to sleep. She can’t sleep with Manatsu invade into their room tonight, she feels insecure but she didn’t acknowledge her own feelings. All the things that playing on her mind right now is the scene when they almost kissing with each other. And what was that? Why she didn’t even reject Wakatsuki, and why her heart hurt when she saw Manatsu close to her? That is not so new, she always feels like that whenever Manatsu clinging to Wakatsuki.

        Reika try to sleep but her eyes was full with Wakatsuki face as she facing her roommate. Her lip was shaping a smile without her realizes. ‘Why you always make me happy Waka?’

   The next day, as usual Wakatsuki leave a note on Reika’s book, asking her to have lunch at Fukagawa’s café. They missed yesterday’s lunch together as Eri picked Reika up. But that is not all, Wakatsuki consider it her thanks for what Reika did to her last night. Her migraine has gone in the morning she wakes up.

   So they gonna meet at garden at 12, Wakatsuki was there first as her faculty is nearer. She stands instantly as she saw Reika is coming to her. “Are you hungry yet?” She asked her usual question as she grab Reika’s hand bag and hang it on her shoulder. It has become her habit this lately.

   Reika nodded few times and grabs Wakatsuki’s hand. Happy that they will spend time together.

   “Hi you two, we want to have lunch, let’s go together?” Out of nowhere, Manatsu and Iko-chan appear and as usual, Manatsu starts to cling onto Wakatsuki. Seeing all that, Reika quickly pulled her hand away, she is pouting. “Let’s have Okonomiyaki?” She suggests, much more like she is flattering with Wakatsuki.

   “Yada.. I’m on diet right now.” Iko-chan added. “Why not to MaiMai’s café? I heard she has new recipes.” Iko-chan being jumpy as usual.

   “How about we go together?” Wakatsuki voiced out her opinion while looking at Reika, like she asks Reika’s permission but the other girl just showing her grumpy pouting face.
   “Yada, Suddenly I’m full.” She retrieves her hand bag from Wakatsuki and start walked of. She lost all her mood for today. She wishes that they will be able to have lunch together without being disturbed by flirty Manatsu and noisy Iko-chan, but Wakatsuki is too dense to read all that on her face, she is too nice with Manatsu.

   Wakatsuki just watch Reika’s back as her roommates walk away, she didn’t manage to stop Reika, that girl is too unpredictable.

   “Let’s go?” Manatsu quickly pulled Wakatsuki’s hand walk side by side with her all their way to the café.

   They’re might be have fun in the café, as Manatsu always spoon fed Wakatsuki with cakes and Iko-chan never fail to cheer to the handsome band that always singing in the café. The band called NogiDan is his ultimate reason to come to this café. But for Wakatsuki, there are no moments she is not thinking about Reika, her roommates. She has called the other girl many times but all her calls were rejected. She sighs for nth time, not realized that the other girls eyes always on her, there is slight disappointed in Manatsu eyes but being at Waka’s sides made her grateful enough. Manatsu smile as Wakatsuki face her and she ready to spoon fed Wakatsuki again.

   “Manatsu, can you wait here for a moment?” She tells Manatsu as she stands up, without waiting any answer from her friend, Wakatsuki run out from the café. Mai just give her a small smile as she watch her niece run.

   Reika, on the other hand is sitting on the bridge while talking with Eri on the phone. She is sometimes laughing to the Eri’s jokes. She is laughing but deep there she is feeling worse and guilty that she is actually pretending with Eri. She is only return to the man when she is in bad mood.

   Her phone is beeping as she is talking to Eri, without looking at the caller, this time she pick the calls after told the man that she have another incoming call.

   “Where are you?” It is Wakatsuki on the other side, asking right after Reika accept her call. As usual, Wakatsuki’s tone sounded so concern.

   “What do you care about my location?” Reika answers coldly.

   “You haven’t eat, Reika.”

   “What about your girlfriend? Why call me when you’re together with her right now?” Reika still with her cold and sinister tone. “Who am I to you Wakatsuki? You promise to have lunch with me first, but you go with them, is Manatsu your girlfriend? And you a real lesbian?” Reika is back with her old prejudice mind. She is absolutely mad and doesn’t care about anything right now.

   “Manatsu is not my girlfriend, Reika.” Wakatsuki frustatedly explains over again and again. this is not the first time Reika telling her this.

   “Ahah, like I believe that when both of you clinging to each other like twins.” Reika rolled her eyes up, totally annoyed by the view that suddenly played on her mind.

   “Which one you want to hear first?” Wakatsuki asked with calm and low voice. She leans to the same bridge as Reika right now, beside the other girl. She found her when she called the other girl earlier and talk to her on phone while she eyeing Reika from a far. Of course she could see all the pouting face Reika makes.

   “What?” However, Reika didn’t even shocked by the other girl presence. She still with her cold composure resists reacting to whatever moves Wakatsuki made.

   “That Manatsu is not my girlfriend.. And Reika is someone important to me.” Answer to her own question, Wakatsuki slowly reaches for Reika’s hand. She holds them gently. This time Reika can’t resist to the soft touch on her hand, she grab to Wakatsuki’s hand even tighter when she was guided to the benched nearby. They still have phone on their ears, even they just sitting side by side and talking so close.

   “HOW would you define love Reika?” Wakatsuki asks that question one day. She is too tired to think about it herself. She can’t find the answer from her aunty question. Who is Reika? Is Reika someone special to her? But she didn’t know what love actually is.

   “Hurmm.. my mom always said that.. when you’re with that someone, you can feel thousands of butterfly inside your stomach..” Reika answer it lightly as she looking up to the ceiling, to the image of birds that was produce by their own hand’s shadow. They’re now laying lazily on bed while looking to the ceiling playing shadows game.

   “Like when you feels that your stomach and heart weightless?”

   “Maybe..” Reika nodded as she is moving the image of birds on the ceiling towards other bird belong to her roommate. The images are now moving randomly. There are two birds right now the ceiling, one belong to her and the other one to Wakatsuki’s.

   “If someday, I happened to love someone..” Wakatsuki’s bird shadow stop moving as she looks into Reika’s face. The other girl doesn’t even realize the warm gaze from Wakatsuki, yet keep playing with her own shadow.

   “And if that someone I love is a girl.. Would you still be my friend?”

   Listen to the question makes Reika stop from her act. She is silent, not giving any answer. She turns her head to Wakatsuki’s direction, their eyes meet and their nose touching each other. They’re not speaking but their breaths resonate within each other as they keep diving into each other’s eyes.

Wakatsuki not even blink as she lets her eyes being read by Reika. Once a time her eyes would travel around Reika’s face and stop at her lips. It somehow looks so tempting to her. “I’m hungry.” She broke the silent, not wanting her own feeling went too far that she can’t even control. She wake up and run to her desk.

   Seeing Wakatsuki avoiding her, Reika sigh. Why she feels so disappointed by her act? She want to look into her eyes a little more time, it is so beautiful, so deep that she would drowned in it and why she never realize it before? That Wakatsuki has very soothing brown eyes, make her so mesmerized every time their eyes met?

   “Jaa.. I made sandwich!” Wakatsuki came back with a plate of smiling sandwich on her hand. She always like to draw faces on the sandwich, if she is happy she would draw smiling face on it using sauce and other wise when she unhappy. But most of the time, when she is with Reika, smiling faces always appear.

   Reika wake up as Wakatsuki sit beside her. She smiles to the faces on the sandwich. Wakatsuki never failed to make her happy even by simple things. Reika grab a sandiwich and shove it in her mouth.

   “Ahh.” Wakatsuki open her mouth and show it Reika, asking to be fed.

   “Yada..” Reika turn away, doesn’t want to share her sandwich.

   “You have to share, I only make one.” Wakatsuki ignore Reika’s answer, she takes a bite of the sandwich that still in Reika’s mouth. Their lips slightly touching with each other, Wakatsuki beam a smile, her eyes also shaping a smile but more glittering. Flustered by her act; Reika frozen when their eyes met. But Wakatsuki only grins with bright eyes, her dimples showing on her left cheek.

   Reika retreat and make the sandwich split into two, she looks away too shy to even meeting eyes with her roommate. She shushes away the nervousness inside her stomach. Out of sudden she can see a lot of butterflies flying around her, it might be her imagination but it is so beautiful, Reika smiles on her own. ‘When you fall in love, you can feel butterflies in your stomach.’ She remembers her mom’s words. If that is true.. Reika turns to Wakatsuki and their eyes meet again and she can see the butterflies flying around her roommates.

   “I have butterflies since long ago, Reika.” Wakatsuki said, confessing her feeling at the same time. She is being serious, not like playful Wakatsuki a moment ago. “I always has butterfly whenever I’m with you.”

   And Reika is obviously taken aback by the words. ‘So do I, Waka.’ Yet she still didn’t have any courage to say it loud.

   That night, they don’t talk with each other, well it much more like Reika who keep avoiding Wakatsuki while the other girl keep it cool, not even feel rejected when Reika not replying anything.

   “Shall we sleep?” Wakatsuki asks as she lay on the bed, as usual she turn to Reika’s side; always sleeping facing her roommate. She smiles, reassuring Reika that ‘don’t worry; she won’t force her to accept her feelings. And Reika, only blinked her eyes for once.

   Again, that night Reika couldn’t sleep and keep thinking about her own feelings. She never felt like this; not with Eri or any other girls so she can’t accept the fact that she may be like Wakatsuki more than friend. But.. she is a girl.. Reika fighting with herself a lot, she is too scared but at the same time, the feeling inside make her happy.

   So the next day, Reika asked Wakatsuki to have spent some time in Shibuya since today is Sunday. Reika would love if she could sleep some more today but she determines to clear up her own feelings. She wants to make sure it once again, if she really loves Wakatsuki just as a friend or more than that. And of course, the other girl just accepts it happily.

   They walk down the hallway together, hand by hand and laughing at whatever stupid jokes Reika made. Not even realize that Eri is waiting that at one corner with flower in his hand, ready to surprise Reika.


   The simple call by familiar voice is enough to make Reika jump from her position and awkwardly shifting herself away from Wakatsuki. “Eri-kun, what are you doing here?” Reika hesitantly asks, her eyes keep changing the view from Eri and Wakatsuki who both looks uncomfortable with each other.

   “Surprise? I’m always promise to take you to cinema; I guess the day is today?” Eri beam his gentle smile, Reika scratch her own head, feeling confused.

   “But you don’t call me first.”

   “Auchh, you have planned today?” He looks at two people in front him, reading the environment of two people. “So where are you going? I can drive you both?”
   “Reika! Waka! I haven’t see you both since yesterday.. What are you doing?” Manatsu came and land her hand on Wakatsuki shoulder. She much more like a stalker; always show up where ever Wakatsuki are, except in their room, Reika don’t open the door for her anymore nowadays.

   “Ahh are you going out?” Manatsu reads the atmosphere between three people. It is always possible when Eri was there; he is the one who always take Reika for outing. “Can I tag along? Iko-chan with his family anyway.” She beams her flirting smile and winked her eyes to Wakatsuki.

   “I don’t think so Manatsu, even I can’t go with them.” Eri added with his low voice, disappointed not getting answer from Reika.

   “What are you talking about? Let’s go! We’re going to Shibuya.” Reika jump happily, pretending that she don’t feel down at the disruption she has for today. She grabbed Manatsu hand from Wakatsuki’s shoulder and pulled the girl away from her roommate, leaving Wakatsuki with Eri; having glaring competition.

   When the four of them are together, Reika automatically walk with Eri, Eri won’t walk with Manatsu either, he is too obsessed with Reika. And of course, it gives Manatsu chance to cling with Wakatsuki without being stopped by Reika. But the two people keep gazing each other. Wakatsuki would always eye Reika’s hand on Eri’s grip, their hand always interlock with each other since they’ve arrived. While Reika’s eyes unable to left Manatsu that always cling to Wakatsuki’s arm, like a koala. Reika grits her teeth whenever she saw two people spoiled with each other. She is clearly jealous of them. Not wanting to loss to Wakatsuki, she walks even closer onto Eri and flirts with the man just to make Wakatsuki jealous.

   But to Wakatsuki, she still can control her feeling, not to express it out on her face. For sure, she can’t look at two people, especially when they take seat on a famous restaurant there. Reika sits in between her and Eri but she still being so close with Eri.

   Eri, like he can see the sparks in Wakatsuki’s eye, he starts to spoon fed Reika every time he has chance. Reika can’t reject her but to accept the offer yet she still keep an eye to Manatsu who also shoving food into Wakatsuki’s mouth. They both are accepting on whatever being offered to them but their eyes still attached to each other. 

   Manatsu on the other hand, enjoy her free time with Wakatsuki because she is confident that Reika couldn’t stop her anymore, at least for today. Like Eri, Manatsu also spoon fed Wakatsuki while doing all her girlish flirting act to Wakatsuki in front Reika. It is not like she doesn’t realize each glare she receives from her friend but she wants Reika to know that, they’re rival. Who wouldn’t know that Reika like Wakatsuki more than friends? It is too obvious; it is just Reika who is too stupid not to acknowledge her own feelings, too afraid to fall in dangerous love with her roommate. Manatsu smirks as she meeting eye with her friend.

   Can’t bear all the scene in front of her, Reika step onto Wakatsuki’s feet two three times, give her signal. “Ahh, I forget to take receipt from the other store.” Reika quickly find an excuse just to escape from Eri and Manatsu. 

   “Where?? I can get it for you.” Understand the signal from Reika, Wakatsuki quickly play her role.

   “I forget where it is, I will go with you.”

   “Ahh it is okay, I know where it is. Come, let me accompany you.” But Manatsu is faster to read their plan to escape from both of them. Not giving any chance for her, Manatsu quickly stand up and grab Reika’s hand. They then were missing from the crowds of people, leaving two awkward people by themselves.

   “I don’t know what are you actually is. But if Reika’s mom sees you, she wouldn’t let Reika study anymore.” After minutes of silence, Eri spoke up sternly. He never likes Wakatsuki since the first time he met her. To him, Wakatsuki is like her rival even she is a girl. “I didn’t know if Reika ever told you about her mom, but she really dislike this kind of thing.” He added calmly while sipping her tea. 

   “What kind of thing, Eri?” Wakatsuki asks straightforwardly; can’t afford t to run around the bushes with the man anymore.

   “Like.. Girls that look like boys. It is the elder thought.”

   “So that kind of people is disgusting for you?” Wakatsuki are clearly offended by his words, she even pressing her voice deeper. She is too tired by this talk.

   “I don’t point it you.” Eri lands his hand on the table, facing straight with Wakatsuki.

   “Well, why you are being so defending Eri? Feel challenged by me? Afraid that you might lose Reika to me?” Wakatsuki also doing the same thing, she lands her hand on the table and facing Eri, even her tone sound so challenging. She lifted her eyebrow.

   “I can confirm that, Reika is not like that.. She will never go against the nature and her mom’s words.” Eri voice sound so confident. It does trigger the fire inside Wakatsuki. The girl stands up, grab her things and walk away; she didn’t care anymore.

   “I can’t contact her.” Reika repeats the same sentence since before. It has been her hundredth time calling her roommate, wanted to ask her where about but her phone seems off. She furrowed her s eyebrow showing some wrinkles as if she worried about her friend too much. Wakatsuki just went missing like that without informing her anything. “Mou I don’t care anymore!” At last she gives up, if Wakatsuki wanted to be reach, she won’t offed her phone.

   Eri and Manatsu who just waiting for Reika; whom have been engrosses in searching for Wakatsuki finally felt relief. They’re just being bystander since before, not have any courage to disturb the girl when her mood swings because of Wakatsuki.

   They went back to hostel right after that, Reika hasn’t talks even a word in the car. She just sits still beside Eri with arm wrapping her own body, giving signal ‘do not disturb her’. Eri bids his goodbye as he sent two girls back to their hostel but was completely ignored by Reika. He heaves a deep sigh.

   As Reika reach her room, she drops all her things on the floor and sits on her bed; leaning her back on the bed’s head furiously. Her face really expressing her feeling right now, she is mad and angry of Wakatsuki. She is worried because she doesn’t know where Wakatsuki is, she might be sick or lost or being kidnaped. All of the negatives taught keep circling in her head, so she can’t stay silent. If at least Wakatsuki does give her words about leaving, she won’t angry and worry like this. Reika froze in her position for hours, since she back this evening until now, the clock showing 8.

   “Where have you been, Wakatsuki?” Reika asks right away when Wakatsuki enter the room. She doesn’t need to look at who enter the room as she knows who it is by her perfume. She has memorized everything about Wakatsuki, the way she enter the room, the way she clean the room, the way she sleep until how she always clean herself.

   Hearing the question with her cold tone after long time, Wakatsuki choose not to answer Reika. She put her things that she bought from Shibuya earlier in a corner of the room; once again ignoring other girl by throwing her watch on her desk. She is also not in the mood to talk with Reika right now.

   “Mind telling me where are you going Wakatsuki?”  Pissed off that she was ignored by Wakatsuki, Reika raised her voice. It made Wakatsuki flustered a little bit but she stays composed. “Do you think you can do whatever you want, and go where ever you like? I’ve called you thousand times, and why you didn’t pick up?” Reika attacked Wakatsuki straight away with her never ending question. She still sits on the bed while looking at Wakatsuki at the corner of her eyes.

   “Is it good? I’m left but you can be with your boyfriend. Is it what you want?” Wakatsuki keep her voice low, she also angry but she try hard not to lose herself in front Reika.

   Listen to the words, Reika get down the bed and facing her roommates. “How many times I should tell you that Eri is not my boyfriend? We are just childhood friends. And what about you and Manatsu? Walking so close like a twin and laughing happily like you’re so in love!” Reika cannot control her anger anymore, she always said what she want anyway despite she is mad or not. “Don’t act like that, because I don’t like it.” She turns away coldly.

   Wakatsuki glare at Reika for two seconds feeling herself at the verge of her own feeling. “I know, you never like whatever I am. Since the beginning, you never like me, Reika.” Wakatsuki is trying hard not to spill her tears in front of Reika but her words sound so trembled like she is right now. “You always trying to deny my presence, always.”

   “Good that you know. So you understand that since long time ago. Don’t beg for any interest or attention from me, because you will never get it. It is annoying.” Reika ended her words while looking into Wakatsuki’s eyes, like she wanted her to know that she meant all what she said.

   They keep silent for five seconds, each trying hard to contain their own feelings. Wakatsuki looks at the verge of tearing up, she is hurt by Reika’s words but the other girls never looks like she was sorry. As she had enough, Wakatsuki walked away from the room. She can’t cry in front of Reika, not when she was rejected by her.

   The door was slammed so hard that it sounds like earth is break apart, Wakatsuki figure already disappear behind the door. Reika sends the other girl with her apologetic regret eyes. She falls to the floor with tears on her cheeks. Why things always occur vice versa from what she wanted it to be?  Deep there, Reika wants to slap herself for saying all the mean cold words to Wakatsuki, she is too angry to control her own anger; too jealous by Wakatsuki’s act with Manatsu this evening. She brings her knee closer to her chest that is the time she discover Wakatsuki’s thing in the corner of the room. She can’t help herself to not look at the bags, which she found a small glass aquarium with two fish in there. Reika cries even more, Wakatsuki still remember her words that she wants to have two fish at once.
   Like skies can understand their feeling that night, it growl couple of thunders and rain fall down to the earth heavily.

   On a dark street, Wakatsuki hug herself, retaining all the heat she could. Right now, she is waiting for the rain to stop under one of the small bus stop. Her body was shivering badly, her shirts drenched by rain when she running to find place as a shelter, thank god that she found one but still, it is so cold. She looks around, it already dark, light seems off once again every time there was thunder and she was scared as hell. She wants to go back, but she doesn’t have any courage to face Reika at this time, not when the other girl still mad at her. 

   At the end of road, Reika is running with umbrella in her hand. She looks around, searching for her only one roommate. She gathers all her courage to find for Wakatsuki in the middle of rain and thunder. She can’t keep waiting for her in the room, feeling guilty for all her mean words earlier. “Waka.. waka..” She shouts Wakatsuki’s name several times as she looks around. Thank god that she caught Wakatsuki’s figure on a bus stand; hugs her own body while shivering. Reika run to Wakatsuki, she stops in front the bus stop when their eyes met. “What are you doing in the rain?” Reika yelled at Wakatsuki, not because she is mad but because she is worry.

   “I’m not begging for your interest Reika, I did it because I wanted to.” Wakatsuki’s sobs was heard in between her words. She looks down; don’t dare to look into Reika’s eyes. Her trembled hands held a chocolate cake out from her shirt. She is protecting Reika’s favorite cake from the rain instead of herself. She run from their room just to find a cake for Reika, it is the only way to make the other girl calm down; not angry at her anymore. “I know you don’t like me Reika, I know it..”

   Not wanting Wakatsuki to end her words and crying, Reika drops her umbrella and went to Wakatsuki and kiss her on the lips. It is a light kiss, just to shut the other girl mouth. She knows is the one at fault. “I’m sorry for all my words Wakatsuki. I didn’t mean it.” Reika said with teary eyes. She cupped Wakatsuki’s cheek and look into her eyes. “I never said this, but I love you too. I also have butterflies in my stomach since long ago Waka.” With that confession, Reika hug Wakatsuki, sharing all their heat together.

   That night, it becomes special for the two people. They sit on the bed doing nothing but to stare at each other’s eyes. No words ever spoken by the two people with Reika busy drying Wakatsuki’s hair. There was thin awkwardness between them when they only have sleeveless shirts and shorts on them. Coughing two three times as attempt on chasing away the awkwardness, Reika sits up to get a better way in drying her lover’s hair. But the movement only makes the distance between them closer. Wakatsuki follows Reika with her eyes, still can’t look away other than the deep brown orbs of Reika’s, she found it is so mesmerizing.

   The night is dimmed when only the table lamp was on, but as for them it is bright enough to have a better look on each other, to memorize every corner of each other’s faces. And the rain has slowing down than before, making their surroundings more romantic. Rain droplets was heard as they only immersed in themselves, making memories of their love.

   Wakatsuki grab Reika’s waist as the other girl grew closer to her, she bring her face onto Reika’s tummy. There is two seconds interval for Reika to digest what is really happening but she didn’t refrain. To be honest, Reika is enjoying every soft and warm touch on her body. She lowered her body, leveling her eyes with Wakatsuki, the distance between them merely 2cm, leaving the nose touching with each other. They didn’t talk but their eyes, speaking the same language. The only thing they heard was their own breath, it resonating within them, composing beautiful music in between. Wakatsuki grab even tighter but softer grasp on Reika’s waist, bring the other girl closer than it was before. Their noses are crushing and their lips now touching.

   “I love you Reika.” Wakatsuki said for the nth time, she feels more freely to express her love since Reika confess to her in the rain earlier. And with that words too, she is pressing their lips together. It is not a passionate kiss, but a kiss that proving her words. But the only one dominating and leading is Wakatsuki. Reika never ever move from her position. She is still with her expressionless face.

   Wakatsuki retreat as she didn’t receive any responses from Reika. There is slight disappointment in her eyes as she looks down. Reika is still afraid, afraid of their relationship. She brushes Reika’s cheek, calming the other girl from whatever she is thinking right now.

   As Wakatsuki distancing herself even further; not wanting to force the other girl anymore, Reika grab Wakatsuki’s neck. She is unsatisfied only with light kiss and she knows that she become numb earlier which make her lover kind of down. So she leans forward to catch Wakatsuki’s lips. Now, she is dominating with their passionate and deep kiss. She can’t say it by words, but her action speaks louder. She loves Wakatsuki as much as Wakatsuki love her. Maybe more. 

   They retract after some moments of kissing gasping for desperate air. Even the situation didn’t favors them to have a better look, but Reika can see a smile plastered on Wakatsuki’s lips. She knows that, her lover are now satisfied. So does her. There are no words can explain her feelings right now, but she felt relieve, relieve that finally she come into her right decision. She loves Wakatsuki.

   Wakatsuki stands using her knees on the bed, their eyes still glued to each other. She smiles as she pressing the other girl to fall on her back. She pins Reika using her two hands, drops of water fall from her stray short wet hair falls on Reika’s cheek.

   The cold sensation from the water makes her awake and closed her eyes in surprised. Wakatsuki looks so sexy in her eyes. Taking advantage for Reika’s short loss of focus, Wakatsuki leans and land other kiss while pressing their body even harder. Pleasure by the moves made by Wakatsuki, Reika pulled the blanked over their body.

Manatsu, you WakaRei blocker! Where’s Kuroishi when you need them?  XD
Oh Reika, you should be nicer to Waka too if you want her to be as “too nice” like she did with Manatsu.
Huh, bold Waka is bold  :grin:
I feel like I just want to lock Eri and Manatsu away so they don’t disturb WakaRei…  :smhid
Reika, your gay is showing! (like finally! lol)
I don’t really remember but the scene at the end, was it in the movie or the bonus part?

Yep, Naachan won’t fit that chara, Manatsu fits because she’s kinda dramatic.

(A/N: This the last part, i'm sorry of it was too long or complicated. enjoy your reading!


      “Papa used to tell me that, only mama was his love. So when mama was gone he can’t use the word of love anymore. Even if he is a big playboy after mama passed away.” Wakatsuki interlock her fingers with Reika’s.

      They was just lie down on the bed, still lazy to wake up even if it is already 10 in the morning. But luckily this week is the study week before final exam approaching.

      “Do you sad that she was gone?”

      “At first yes. But papa needs support from me. She is the most important person to him.” Wakatsuki smiles back as she facing Reika. It almost a week since they were together, but still, something was off and still doesn’t change. But of course, she can’t tell it on Reika’s face.

      “I love you Reika.” As usual, it has become her habits every morning to say that word and kiss Reika’s forehead. But for sure, Reika still can’t utter the word of love, still averting her gaze each time she said that.

      As their eyes met, Reika beam a smile just to make her love feel assured and not thinking too much about her behavior. Of course she felt guilty but how should she said that? That she still afraid and confused at the same time.

      For a second, there was an awkward air between them when nobody takes charge to talk. Wakatsuki just nods, even if Reika didn’t admit anything, she still can cooperate with that, all matter is how long she can do that.

      Ringing from Reika’s phone save their environment. Without further ado, Reika’s grab her phone. Eri’s name on the screen which Wakatsuki also saw it at her first glance. Even if they are now in different relationship, the presences of Eri still make her feel off and uncomfortable. Reika smiles as she telling that she gonna pick up the call. Wakatsuki, however not speaking a word but move from the bed, giving Reika more spaces to talk privately. But as soon as she moves, her hand was grabbed by Reika and shorten their distance. So at the end, she leans besides Reika while listening to their conversation.

      “Your mom said she would be there today. To give support to you before your exam started.”

      “Ah.. sokka, Roger that.” Reika nodded few times, have nothing to said against Eri, she sometimes glance to Wakatsuki at her side, their fingers still entangle with each other. Somehow, that upset expression looks so cute. “So, who will be here first? You or my mom?”

      Loud grumbling sound can be heard out from Wakatsuki’s lips. Reika once again glance at her, beaming an assuring smile and a light kiss on her cheek before ending her call. “Are you jealous?” Reika asked straightforwardly. She cannot help but feeling amused by the upset face of Wakatsuki as she turn away her body.

      Reika sighed as she received no responses from Wakatsuki. “Eri just asked me to do accompany him doing some errands from my mom. She will be there too, can I go?” Knowing things wouldn’t go anywhere, she chooses to be honest.

      “It is okay, you can go.” Wakatsuki answers reluctantly, she is not even looking at Reika. Feeling jealous burning inside her chest, but she can do nothing about it, isn’t she?

      “Haip. Arigatou nee.” Reika grabs Wakatsuki neck and peck a kiss lightly on the cheeks, trying to enlighten the girl back. “I will be back as soon as possible, but you should take care of yourself too. Don’t let Manatsu flirts with you. Because I’m very jealous girl.”

      “I can tell Manatsu right away about us Reika.”

      “Don’t be crazy.” Reika retort and pulled away her hug from Wakatsuki. She sighs again, knowing what actually an issue here. “I don’t know what will happen after this Waka. I don’t know what to answer when someone asked me about us or if someone would know about us.” Reika scratches her own head, brings her knees closer to her body. That is what exactly offed between them, while Wakatsuki ready to be open about their relationship but Reika still afraid about peoples view to them.

      “That has nothing to do with us Reika, we don’t have to be ashamed, and there is nothing to be afraid of.” This time is Wakatsuki’s turn to back hugged Reika, calming the other girl from her overthinking. “I love you Reika.” Once again she whispers the words and again she receives no answer.

      “I’m not ready yet Yumi. I don’t want anyone to know about us. Do you understand me Yumi?” Reika confessed with a low and soft voice, using Yumi make it softer than usual Waka. Well she will always use it against Wakatsuki rare grumpy face and mood. She turns to Wakatsuki, seeking for an understanding but Wakatsuki just simply look away with upset all over her face.

      Right after Reika left, Wakatsuki was left alone in the room, doing her usual chores, cleaning the room. She looked at the brown board, hanging on the wall in front of their study desk. Lots of their daily picture was pinned on the board, starting from their first day together until today, it was exactly a week, and they would take picture of themselves every day. And as for today, she pinned another Polaroid on the Tuesday empty column. The picture was taken as soon as they wake up from sleep, still with their own sleeping shirts. It define everything about their relationship nowadays. Reika will be all lovey dovey with her but it will only last in their private space which is only in this room.

      For Wakatsuki, it is quite disappointing because she can’t show it in public.. well she is not that kind of people who proud of their lover in front of other people, but what should she do when Reika always mad if Manatsu acts girlish with her but she can’t show that she is taken? Wakatsuki sighed for nth time as she looks at those pictures. It is really complicated relationship with Reika.

      Feeling all bored and having enough cramped in her head due to over study, she chooses to stop by her aunt café. It is still early in the morning so, the café still empty. Only her aunty was there, preparing her shop even if it is still early to do that when the café is only open for public in the evening.

      Notice that her niece unusual bad mood, Mai grabs a piece of cake and bring it to Wakatsuki’s table. The girl still spacing out from her thought.

      “Waka Waka..” She calls few times but still no answers, Wakatsuki simply turn away looking to the garden on the outside, emotionless.

      “Nee Waka! Try the cake. It is the new recipe, bet you it will be good.” Mai tries to grab her attention once again but still nothing was ticked on her niece face. Knowing it is the best to left her alone, Mai just walked away and doing her job on the front desk.

      Wakatsuki’s phone rings few times right after Mai left. It is Manatsu. Wakatsuki not taking another small glance at the callers but straightly pushed the red button and off her phone right after that. She is really not in the mood to talk to anybody today, much more to entertain Manatsu flirty conversation.

      It is already late in the evening when Reika finally finished accompany her mom shopping. All the plastic bags was thrown inside the car’s bonnet and back seat, leaving no space for other people to sit. Well, since they were only two. Eri left right after sending her mom at her place.

      “Nee Reika, let’s go something to eat.”


      “In your dorm of course, I never met your new roommates, we can have a meal together.” Sakurai-san suggests with cheerful tone. Maybe excited meeting her daughter and idea of meeting her daughter’s friend also make her all hype. “Call her first, asks her what she want for dinner.”

      “Huhh? My dorm?” And of course, the idea of meeting her mom with Wakatsuki never a good idea, Reika’s eyes widen with shock and her head quickly finding excuse not to make that happen.

      “She might be not there, maybe she went home.” Reika is trying hard not to make her tension looks obvious. Even if it does, her mom would never grab that idea why she would be that restless.

      “Call her first to make sure of that. It will be enjoyable dinner.” After making that fixed decision, Sakurai-san enters the car, leaving Reika outside feeling nervous. Right after her mom left, she dialed Wakatsuki’s number right away. But the one who answer it was the operator, saying that the person she dialed is not in the coverage. Bunches of her attempts was failed for the same reasons. Now she is upset, where would she go that she is out of coverage? Stupid Wakachuki!

      Finally, she betting all her fate to go back without any notice, hoping that miracle would occur and her mom will never meeting with Wakatsuki. It will be totally disaster if it gonna happen. Because only her know how hate her mom towards the ‘Wakatsuki’s kind’ even if she knows that Wakatsuki is not? Well, it is not really true when they are in relationship right now.

      Reika heave a relieve sigh when she realized that the door was lock, indicate that her roommate is not in there. But it is still not safe enough. She opens the door widely to her mom and closes it quickly, not to give her any chance to be alone. “Mom, you said you need to use the toilet. It is here.” Reika stands there like a statue, but actually she is blocking her mom way into her room.

      “Ah alright.”

      Right after the bathroom door was closed, she rushed to the brown board on wall of their study table. She pulled away the board and throws it in the wardrobe. It will be dead if her mom saw this. She will be dragged home and killed right away. The safest way is not to show her this. Or else she would die due to shock. It could happen since she believe her daughter too much.

      In a fast step and movement, she back to the front hallway not giving any hint to her mom that she trying to hide something from her. She cover her relieve with a smile as her mom came out from the bathroom.

      “It is a nice room. Does your roommate know how to decorate rooms?” Sakurai-san commenting as she was amazed by the room design. It is totally different from her daughter previous room. And of course she could tell that the doing is not from her lazy daughter who loves to sleep in her free time.

      “Ahh sort of, she loves to clean and cook to mom.” Reika smiles awkwardly. She loves to clean and cook but I’m in love with her. Reika continue inside her head.

      Having enough satisfaction with the walk inside the small room, they sits on the bed while talking lots of random things.

      On the outside, not knowing and expecting a guess inside her room, Wakatsuki lazy step approaching the room. She abruptly opens the door from the outside and step in. And everything falls into weird silence; Reika and her mom look into each other while Wakatsuki giving her awkward eyes to the two people.

       “Hajimemashite, I’m Wakatsuki Yumi..” Wakatsuki introduce herself in soft girlish voice while giving a 90º bow. “Reika, I’m here to retrieve my book from your roommate.” Without dragging more time, Wakatsuki’s head quickly creating excuse. But Reika sitting there like a statue, shock from Wakatsuki sudden appearance. Luckily Wakatsuki is fast enough to think of an excuse even she is totally flustered.

      “Reika. My book.” Wakatsuki reminds her again, urges Reika to move and she could away from this thick uncomfortable air. She is not too stupid to not realized killer aura from Reika’s mom.

      Back to her sense, Reika quickly grab any book from her desk and give it to Wakatsuki. Not to escape from hinting the other girl to go away as fast as she could. After receive the book and bowing, Wakatsuki get out from the room but of course she is not away. She stand outside of the room, it is not her intention to eavesdrop but the talks can be heard all the way out of the room. And all she could feel is, hurt and pain.

      “If she is not talking, I will never realize that she is a girl. How can your roommate befriend with girl like her Reika?” Reika’s mom confessed her inner thought, her body shivering from all the bad and scary thought of the new girl. Reika cannot help but to smile awkwardly, in this situation she will never able to go against her mom. Keep silent is the best decision.

      “Please stay away from that kind of girl Reika-chan.” As usual, she would remind her daughter of that familiar advises. Reika unwillingly nods and smile.

      It is normal for Wakatsuki to have migraine whenever she over thinking of something. She admits that this is her weakness, easy to fall sick and having severe migraine. And all the talks she heard last night doing nothing good to her but fasten and hurting her more. Luckily, she doesn’t have any paper for today so she can sleep until she can forget everything in her mind. Migraine might be hurt but she accepts that as her way of coping with problems as she would forget all the unnecessary pain things after that. So she believe she can forget everything after long deep sleep.

      “Wakachuki, wake up.. drink your medicines first.” Reika shakes the other girl body and laid the head on her laps. She massages Wakatsuki’s head lightly. “Come on Waka, have your pills and you can continue you sleep after that.”

      Wakatsuki open her eyes lazily, with the help from Reika, she sits and swallows all the pills. She thanks Reika with a small smile.

      “I have paper today, are you sure you can stay alone?”


      “I will back for lunch.” Reika pecks on Wakatsuki’s cheek and brushing it lightly.

      “You don’t have to do that Reika. I’m having migraine, I would not feel hungry. Don’t tired yourself.” With eyes still shut, she answers.

      “What, it is not a problem for me to meet my girlfriend. You know that.” Reika casually answer while fixing Wakatsuki’s head on the pillow, pulled the blanket over her body and put the blindfold on. She kissed her again before walk out from the room. “I will be back soon.”

      In the library, Reika was seen doing some reviews with Manatsu since they are having same paper for this morning. Ikoma was nowhere to be seen which was not odd at all, that boy will always study alone at his private place.

      “Nee Reika, how many subjects do you left?” Manatsu asks as she close her book and get ready for next paper.

      “I have two more, it will finish tomorrow.” Reika also closed her books, have enough of reviewing the subject she will face today.

      “Where is Waka?” Manatsu asks hesitantly, even if she knows that it will be sensitive topic for Reika but it is not a crime to ask about her friend. Right?

      “Ahh Waka? She is having migraine and just sleeping in the room.” Reika looks away while answering the question. Whenever people asked about Wakatsuki, she will feel terror running in her blood vessel, afraid that people will notice what she trying to hide.

      “Sokka..” Manatsu nodded. They walked out the library together when it almost the time for their next paper.

      But Manatsu can’t stay focus on her paper; she can only thought the way that she could get closer to Waka again. It is almost a week she don’t see her face, all her calls was rejected by Waka. She might be said nothing but she is not stupid not to know that something was off. Because whenever she went to Reika’s room, she will never accepted by them. Either they were away or they don’t want anyone to enter their room. She can tell that the least. So Manatsu decide to pay a visit for Wakatsuki after she finished her paper. She can finished it earlier than Reika since she was smarter than her. Well, that is not a wise idea but all she could feel is desperation to meet the girl and this is the only chance she have to grab.

      The door is not locked when Manatsu turns the knob. She steps in stealthily, careful not to wake up the sleeping girl. She sits on her leg on the bed beside Wakatsuki. She rolled her sleeves and starts to give massage to Wakatsuki.  She can’t tell that how much she miss Wakatsuki, that her breaks into thousand pieces whenever Wakatsuki try hard to avoid her. What was wrong with her that everyone hates her?

      Reika whistling as she arrive her dorm and approaching the room. The key was dangling on her fingers; ready to be inserted on the knob hole. But to her surprised; the door not even locked and slightly open. Did she forget to lock the door before? Or did Wakatsuki already wake up? Or someone breaks into her room? Her eyes widen to the last thought across her mind.

      She pushed the door slowly, but to her shock all she could see is the figure of Manatsu kiss Wakatsuki while hugging her and Wakatsuki not even rejecting the touch from Manatsu. Using her left strength, she steps into the room feeling dumbfounded. “Waka..” She calls, her voice almost unheard but Manatsu heard it as the room is not that noisy.

      “Reika..” She pulled away from Wakatsuki when she realized the girl standing there with red face, holding her anger.

      Realized the touch was suddenly pulled away, Wakatsuki open her blindfold. It takes her five seconds to have clear view of Manatsu in front of her and not Reika as she would expect it. And the terror in Manatsu’s eyes sensing her that something was wrong, she looks at the Manatsu eyes directed her. Her mouth fall into a wide gape when she saw Reika standing there with tears on her eyes.

      Reika can’t control her feelings anymore and pushed the small aquarium gift from Wakatsuki the other day, and the glass aquarium crushing into the floors into thousand pieces. The loud sound of breaking glass awakes Wakatsuki from her shock, she runs to Reika but the grab on her arms stopping her from doing that. Manatsu is holding tightly on Wakatsuki’s arm, prevent her from moving.

      “Waka! Explain to me please.” Manatsu begging to Wakatsuki, the grips was tighten as she desperately holding her tears.

      “I am sorry Manatsu, but can we talk later?” All that important to Wakatsuki is Reika, so she pushed the other girl to the bed when there is no sign Manatsu will let her go. She started to chase for Reika.

      On the hallway of the dorm, Wakatsuki runs like a crazy girl, still with her sleeping shirt and short pants. Phone still on her hands and fingers keep dialing Reika’s number but everything was fail. The calls not even connected. So she runs and searching like crazy girl, her shirt drenched in sweats as she never stop from running. She went to the garden, to the café, to the restaurant and the last place she went to is at Mai’s café. She finally able to catch her breath there but Reika was nowhere to be seen.

      “Aunty Mai, do see Reika?” Wakatsuki asked while panting and gasping for air.

      “No, I not see her anywhere.” Mai answer in shocked, shocked with her niece condition. She wants to ask more but the rings from Wakatsuki’s phone stopping from doing so.

      Without looking at the caller, Wakatsuki pushed the green button. The call connected and Manatsu’s sobs was heard loudly on the speaker. Mai once again taken aback, having no idea of what actually going on.

      “Waka, can you explain things to me please? What is the meaning of this?”

      “I’m sorry Manatsu, but you I was blindfolded, I never thought it was you. Don’t misunderstood things please.” She yelled as she no longer can hold her anger and frustration.

      “I never thought you were like this, that you have something with Reika. I.. I will tell everyone about two of you.” In between her sobs, Manatsu threaten Wakatsuki, giving her no other choice but to run again.

      “Are you mad Manatsu? Don’t be crazy!” And she run again all the way to the dorm hoping that she wouldn’t do anything stupid, Reika will never accept that. At least not from other people moreover Manatsu.

      In the room, Manatsu crying tones of tears as all she could think is betrayal and rejection. Even if she expect this, but everything that happen is too shocking to her. Manatsu bring her knees to her chest, again she start sobbing another tones of tears. Call her stupid, call her crazy but yes she is the kind that would desperately cry over breaking heart.

      Wakatsuki take another 10 minutes of detour from her aunt café to her room. She reaches the room while panting and gasping for another air. All the running tiring her but she can’t stop from doing that. Seeing Manatsu on the floor, she heaves a relief breath. She approaches the other girl and sits beside her.

      “Tell me Waka, what is wrong with me? Why you can’t accept me but Reika?” Manatsu begging another chance from Wakatsuki with tears filling in her eyes.

      “You are okay, you are kind and beautiful. But you know, love is not that simple, you can’t hope your love will be replied. If it is happen, world will always in peace.” Wakatsuki answer calmly. “You love me, but the person I love is Reika.”

      In her home, Reika also crying tones of tears. Sobbing without giving any clear reasons to her mom. And her mom, of course feel worry looking at her daughter crying nonstop for over two hours already. And Eri, just standing on the door watching all the drama without speaks up. Reika calls him right after she runs away from her rooms, and Eri of course willingly arrive there any minute, bring the girl away but to her home, the place no one would know including Wakatsuki. He might know nothing but he knows that bring her here is the best decision ever. Watching Reika like that make him hurts more so Eri left with heavy steps.

      “Reika, are you okay? You have crying for hours already.” Sakurai-san hands out a glass of water to her daughter as she sits beside her. She pats her daughter’s back as attempt to soothe her and stop crying.

      Reika reach for the glass and brings it to her lips, it calm her a little but not stopping her from still sobbing.

      “Is there anything I should know? Is something wrong? Or did Eri did something bad to you?” Sakurai-san guessing some random answer while brushing Reika’s hair.

      Reika shakes her head few times before finally have enough strength to speak. “Mom, if I don’t love Eri, will you feel sad?”

      “Of course I will now. I’m not forcing you with Eri, it is just I used to see both of you always together since you were little. So I thought you like him.”

      “And what if.. someone that I like is.. not a man. Will you be angry at me?” Reika carefully asking the question while looking at her mom’s eyes. And everything falls into deep silence, Reika looks down as she could sense her mom’s dissatisfaction.

      Listen to her daughter’s answer make Sakurai-san is taken aback but she try to look composed as she could. She can’t get angry at this time, not when Reika is still unstable.

      The next day is Reika’s last paper, even if she was feeling heart broken, she wouldn’t dare to bet on her future, not when today is the last paper for her. Eri accompany her to the college and waiting for her to finish her exam. Reika however, trying hard to avoid everyone’s eyes onto her, scared that everyone would know the last night fuss. She can never take it lightly when it involved Manatsu. And of course, the person she tries to avoid the most is Manatsu and Wakatsuki.

      While waiting for Reika to finish her paper, Eri walks around the garden. There, he met with Wakatsuki. The girl at first didn’t realized his stared but as soon as she meet with Eri’s gaze, all she could think is Reika seeing him here again make her heart wounded. They didn’t utter any words, Eri is just simply stand there while holding up to his anger, even if Reika is not saying anything, he knows that it must be related to Wakatsuki. And his guess is right when he saw her today. Wakatsuki is not much different than Reika, both looks so pitiful and in mess. Wakatsuki too standing there doing nothing, across the water fountain, both people look at each other with deep meaningful gaze.

      Reika finished her last paper within three hours and go home straight after that. Luckily she didn’t bump into Wakatsuki. Well, the chances of bumping into her itself is low as they don’t have any similar subjects. And Eri, of course he didn’t say anything. He couldn’t afford to see Reika suffer more than this. If Reika is hurt, so do him, what you can expect from person who love her since forever but he still can’t let her go even if everything is so obvious that Reika will never return his love.

      Seeing Eri that day, make Wakatsuki clear of Reika’s where about. Where would she go when the only place Wakatsuki never dared to step is her house and meeting with her mom. Wakatsuki might never have the courage to face Reika’s mom but she need to clear things up. So, after she finished her last paper which exactly a week after that incident, she went Reika’s house. After gather all her courage, there she is, sitting in the middle of living room facing Reika’s mom stern face. The older woman just crosses her arms around her chest.

      “I need to apologize to you first about our meeting before. That I pretended to borrow her book, I’m her roommate.” Wakatsuki carefully arrange her words, careful not tick any sensitive matter that would make the older woman angrier at her. Because even right not she can feel the stare pierce into her face. She looks up, meeting eyes with Sakurai-san to express her honesty in her words.

      “I’m not surprised, people like you will lie anyway. But why did you need to lie to me? Did Reika tell you to?”

      “No! Of course not, I’m doing it at my own consciousness.” Wakatsuki quickly deny and admitting at the same time. “I happen to know that you don’t like people… like”

      “Enough, you don’t have to explain that things. It is good you know that.”

       “I am very close with Reika.. and I want to ask for your permission to be together with her.” Her voice turn down at the end her sentence as the gaze piercing into her more and more.

      “To be with her?”    

      “I love Reika.” She adds.

      “What answer do you want from me? When you already know that I can’t accept this kind of relationship. And you came here to ask my permission to have relationship with my only daughter. What answer do you want? Should I tell you that please be happy and take care of each other? And lead a good life? Let me be honest, I don’t think this kind of relationship will be last long.”

      “But I’m serious.” Wakatsuki quickly cut the sentence and voicing out her seriousness, that she didn’t take thing lightly, that she thinks it very thoroughly.

      “Okay, if you’re that serious.. let asks Reika, is she really serious with this or not.” She challenged Wakatsuki with her low confident voice before called upon Reika who is waiting and listening on the stairs.

      Listen that her name was called; Reika didn’t have any choice but to obey. She steps down and for the first time after a week, she finally face to face with Wakatsuki. She missed her so much but stays composed, knowing that her mom will mad at her if she didn’t hear what she wants to hear. So Reika don’t even looks into Wakatsuki’s eyes when her walk closer to her, giving her signal that don’t come nearer. “I’m sorry mom but..”

      “We can talk about that later. But I want to know what happened.”

      Reika takes a second before answering the question. She takes a deep breath and starts to speak. “No, it is nothing between us.” She looks straight into her mom’s eyes telling her she is not lying. She averts her gaze into Wakatsuki. “Yumi, I’m sorry but I’m just playing with you.”

      “Do you think she is serious?” Sakurai-san once again looks to Wakatsuki who is now approaching her daughter. 

      “Reika, I understand. But the reasons I’m here is to tell you that.. I don’t know it was Manatsu, you know I was blindfolded and you know that I’m waiting for you.” She looks into Reika’s eyes who just look down to the floor, ignoring her explaination. “I didn’t have to explains it right? You don’t even care about it, right?” Wakatsuki at her verges if broken down, tears already filled in her eyes.

      And Reika, don’t even have courage but looks down guiltily as Wakatsuki is now in front of her. Their distant was now a meter away.

      “Reika, I will go now.” Wakatsuki said before leaving. Her voice trembled as she try to stay calm in front of her and not to cry. Without waithing any answer, she walked down the stairs, leaving the two people with different content. Sakurai-san would feel all satisfied because her daughter obeyed her but Reika with her guilty as she once again hurting Wakatsuki.

      As Wakatsuki finally leave, Reika legs simply giving up of supporting her, she falls to the floor and starts to cry again. How she feel sad when she need to lie about her feeling and hurt Wakatsuki even more. The other girl just coming here with pure intentions to clear things up but she can’t simply said yes, I forgive you. The frustration inside is killing her. Seeing her daughter like that, Sakurai-san sits beside her and give little pat on her back. It was the least she could do when she is still angry at her own daughter but everything that happen just now has solve the complication inside her heart.

      Wakatsuki meet with Eri at the front door, the man has been standing there since she arrived before. She stops in front of the tall man. Her tears start to fall onto her cheeks. “Please take care of her.”

      With that words, Wakatsuki walk away with tears on her cheeks. She don’t even turn back and bringing her wounded heart away.

      “Eri, I’m sorry.”

      To Eri, Reika just can say sorry, sorry for keeping him waiting for a long time but at the end she can’t return his love. Sorry for keep searching for the man every time she needs him. Sorry because she always turns down him whenever he came to her. Sorry that once again she can’t promise him anything. Because the person she loves all this time is Wakatsuki, and when that person is not around, she can’t love anymore, she miss that capability to be in love.

      How can she only realize it now? That she can only be herself when Wakatsuki was there, that she finally now can accept the fact that she is in love with a girl. That she can only say the word of love to Wakatsuki and wanted to say it to her. That she only can see butterflies when Wakatsuki was there, now she wants to see those beautiful butterflies. Why love is so mean to her? Walked away when she want her to be by her side even if the world go against her, saying the word of love then leaving her alone in cruel world full of act.

      Wakatsuki is still crying when she waiting for her uncle, Hashimoto Naoki to pick her up at the college garden. The older man is not saying anything when he picks her up with all the swollen face in mess. He can ask her wife later when they met. Going back without knowing anything is like booking his own death with his brother.

      Reika is back in her room after a month of mourning. And everything was normal. The bed already at their normal place like the first time they met. The red line was still there, keeping the boundary like before, the only different is that person is now wasaway, nowhere to be seen. And her first greeting with lipstick was still on the mirror. How she now longing to see her but guess that is now happening. Not when she hurt her that much.

      Why she never have the courage to love her like Wakatsuki would? Why she was so afraid to love her before when losing Wakatsuki right now are more
painful than everything? Why she can’t even say she love her when right now the words she want to say the most is ‘I miss you’ and ‘I love you’? Why can’t she walk together with her under the blue sky when right now she only can stare at the dark cloud waiting for blue sky to appear again? She wishes that someday, someday when she got her Wakatsuki back, she would never looks down to the ground waiting for people to keep her eyes away from her and she would raise her head to look into her eyes. It is never Wakatsuki fault that she can’t love her publicly. Because the inferior always come inside her.

      Now, the only thing she could do is drawing the sad face on her sandwich and eats them alone. That now she can only playing with shadows alone, even the bird reflection looks so lonely with only her hand moving them. Now, the only thing she saw and on brown board on the walls was her picture with only Yes or No without any question. Well, the question lies inside herself, did she have any courage to love her? How long she would endure the loss? How long she can endure the missing inside without fighting for her rights to be in love? It was hard, it is so hard. And she needs to fight the pain alone.

      “If one day you have courage, we will fly together.”

      That is one day she finally have courage to open the letter in butterfly shapes that she found in her book and the letter still asking for her, still waiting for her to fly together. Reika can’t help but to cry again.  Yes or No? It only depends to her, how long she should endure the loss without fighting for it? It is enough, when she is the one who hurt her, she is the only one who should treat the wound.

      So, that week, Reika is makes her decision to follow for Wakatsuki all the way to her hometown in Shizuoka. She at least need to say sorry and try again, as much as Wakatsuki would try to fix their relationship, as much as Wakatsuki ever tried to this relationship possible.

      “Hashimoto-san!” She calls when she saw the tall man in the farm. Well she still remember all the story Wakatsuki told her before, where her farm is,
what the name of her beloved uncle and how funny her papa is. Thanks to Aunty Mai, she finally reaches this place. “Do you still remember me?” She asks with smile plastered on her face complimenting her big round eyes.

      Hashimoto-san only can smile awkwardly, confused on how to treat the girl who hurt his niece that much. But he still bring her inside, meeting with his brother. Luckily that Wakatsuki-san is not as stern as her mom would be. Her presence was accepted happily by the old man. 

      “I was here to ask your permission to meet with Yumi.” Reika straightforwardly declare her intentions after introduce herself.

      “Oh sure you can, you can found her near the river down there. Naoki-kun, show her the way.”

      And here she is, Reika can saw Wakatsuki’s back from here. Even her back looks so sad right now. Even the sound of flowing river so frustrated at her. “Yumi.” She calls softly, making the other girl stand abruptly and facing her. ahh, how she miss that beautiful face. She looks more sunken than before, the bones on her cheeks even obvious. How she can see that Wakatsuki is suffer as much as she is because of her own doing.

      Seeing Reika standin there, she walks to other girl. Emotionless. She is not uttering any words but waiting for her to speak.

      “How dare you left your girlfriend picture inside the room.” Reika pinned her photo that she brought together onto Wakatsuki’s chest. She is with her usual cheerful tone, but still there is no any respons or emotion being displayed on her face.

      “I’m hurt Reika.” It is a statement.

      Listen to the confession makes Reika looks down. She try not tearing up once again, not when she need the courage the most right now. “Why? It is just a small matter.” She tried to tease but nothing was success.

      Wakatsuki stare straight into Reika’s eyes telling her she is really hurt.

      “Waka.. I’m sorry.” Reika tries to find the right words. “I’m sorry. That I was afraid, I was confused.. and I was afraid of everything. That my mom would mad at me, that my friends would tease me, I was afraid with people eyes.” She stops and starts sobbing a little. “But now I know, that if I was still afraid, I will lose you. And I don’t want to lose you again, it is too painful.” Her voice trembled as she try hard not to cry. There is still no answer from Wakatsuki.

      “Am I too late? It is okay, I came too late” Reika smiles bitterly, calming down herself before she can walk away with tears in her eyes.

      “Reika.” The soft calls stop Reika from her steps.

      “It is okay, I’m okay.” Without being asked, she answers. Much more like her own persuasions to her own heart. Before all she could feel is Wakatsuki warm hug from her back.

      “Thank you that you finally have courage to love me.”

      Reika turn her body and return the hug. Now she can hug as much as she can without thinking about people’s eyes.

      To her mom, she knows her mom would be furious over her decisions but she can only say sorry. Saying that she only feel and see butterflies when she was with Wakatsuki. Even if asking her mom permission would be much but still she asks for that opportunity to know more about love, she loves Eri but she never feel the butterflies inside her whenever they was together. And if this is true, she wants to feel the fall, the breaks when she was in love. And she never wants to keep curious about this love forever, so she want to try this out with Wakatsuki.

      To Eri, she can only said that she was sorry. He is like her brother that she never thinks as love as much when she was with Wakatsuki.

      Now she wonders that, why the sky has turned blue all of sudden? And why the butterflies are suddenly flying all over the place?

      They will never know how future would be, will it be tough and intricate? But as long as she have Wakatsuki, she thinks she has more than enough to face it. She have the courage now.

Anyway, is that uncle Hashimoto for real? As in Aunty Mai's husband?  XD

Sakurai Reika

      For whatever reason it is, Reika never ever thought or dreamt she would be stuck in this situation. Situation where she thinks, her future was doomed. Not really doomed but she can’t never ever able to lift her face ever again, not after today. When her mom, whom right now is sitting beside her; begging at her childhood friend to let her stay with him. Because to her mom, she is the only child in the family who her parents adored so much until they can’t let her alone in Tokyo to further her studies, after she failed her entrance exam for nth times. 

      Her parents almost can’t give their permission to let her go to Tokyo just because she has no one to take care of her. Not until, they know their old friends which their son is her childhood friend – study at the same university as she will. What make her parents more ecstatic is, he live alone in an apartment. That is not the most doomed story she has for today. Well, a childhood friend would never make her feel this ashamed but when she used to have crush on that ‘friend’… that was literally trouble for her. Not used, she still have crush on him up till now.

      Because he is her first love.

      But, the last time they met is exactly 5 years ago. When they both still 15 years old. The reason is, well he has to follow his father’s job that always move from one place to another. And she, incidentally witnessing her only best friend kissed him. That broke her heart and she, ran away from him not wanting to meet him for the last time. Then until now, that make her reluctant to meet him in the eyes. Then how she supposed to live under same roof with him until she finishes her study? That makes her feel like losing her head and hide her face in some paper bag.

      “Damn Wakatsuki Ryu.” She mutters under her breath, upset. Still, she didn’t dare to lift her head to look into him straight and just letting her mom, settle their talk with him alone. She hasn’t talks since they arrived two hours ago; silent in her own world. But he never gives up talking with her, except she doesn’t reply it as much as she wants. Five years, and the border was built so thick around them; is what she felt.

      “I’m sorry for troubling you Wakatsuki-san.” Again, Mrs. Sakurai bends her head low to the young man in front of her. She doesn’t know how to make herself comfortable anymore when she has troubled this young man so much. 

      “It is okay aunty, Reika is my friend too. Having her in my house is just a small matter.” Wakatsuki Ryu waves his hand furiously. He can’t stand still at the sight how the older woman has to beg to him like that. He just felt, it wasn’t that necessary. But no matter how much he resists, the older woman still.. Yeah like that.

      “Mom! It’s enough.” Reika, after so much silence for the day finally spokes. And both persons muted upon her starts talking. “Don’t you think you should be back now? Dad must be waiting for you at home.” She anxiously tries to stay composed.

      Like she remembering her husband, Mrs. Sakurai quickly stand up and rushed to the main door. Reika followed after her. Before parting their way, both Sakurais’ hugged each other. Obviously, Mrs. Sakurai looks more reluctant to let her only child without her survilience while Reika; can’t wait to part with her mom.

      “Are you sure you can do this?” Mrs. Sakurai wanted to make sure for nth times and like usual she only received confident nods from her daughter.

      Wakatsuki Ryu who just stands as bystander holds his laugh. This is somehow looking funny to him. How can Reika be that confident? It makes him wonder how much that girl changes after five years.

      “Be careful on your way back aunty. Don’t worry about Reika, I will take care of her for you.” He gives his best smile to the older woman, assuring her that he will fulfill his new responsible. And Reika, just snickered silently behind him while watching her mom’s back until she was missing in some elevator.

      And they were left alone. Both still stand in front of the door, leaning at each side of both sides of walls. Reika, still can look up to him. Much more when she can feel his eyes pinned on her. Her heart can’t stop throbbing into her ribs. It is suffocating her so much.

       “Hey there.” Ryu said, finally able to have a proper ‘introduction’ since she arrived this evening. He tucked his right hand into his slack and looks at her intently. He smiles.

      “Uh, Hi.” Reika replied, almost like a whisper. She can’t look into him. She can’t talk properly, it is suffocating so much.

      “Long time no see. You remember our promise.” He recalls. This time he grins when Reika look up to him for a second signaling him that they on same frequencies before she landed her eyes on the floor again. That shy attitude of her makes him blurted out a small laugh.

      “So you really remember huh? Our promise, to meet again at Nogizaka University.” Ryu never gives in. He didn’t care the fact the promise was made when they were just ten. If Reika still remember, and so do him. That is why he is here. That fact alone makes his smile turn even brighter.

      But without him knowing, the talks make Reika more anxious and awkward. Yeah. How should she answer that? Of course she would remember, despites all the pain she felt when she saw him being kissed by her best friend she still wanted to fulfill their promise. That once upon a time they will always be together and enter same university. But for Ryu, entering Nogizaka University; known as the most prestigious university in Japan was not a big problem. He was known as a genius. His name wills always on the board, while for Sakurai Reika, her name would always rank below than 20; each time. That is the real reason why she always failed the entrance exam and can’t give up applying again and again, because she only aimed Nogizaka University. She didn’t care even it never matched her qualification, just because she want him to know that she can do that too, well it was a little bit too late. But hey! She managed anyway.

       “Ahh Reika, don’t tell me you’re daydreaming again!” Ryu shakes Reika’s body when the girl seems to be in deep thought.

      Reika quickly backed off but she met the wall instead. He laugh. 

       “Come on. Let me show your room.” Instinctively, he grabs her hand and walks her into his apartment once again; never realizes a slight pinkish tinted on Reika’s cheek when their hands met. She follows him anyway.

       “Here, this is your room. I hope you didn’t mind sharing a room with Naachan, but for now, she is away. She will be back next week.” Without looking back at Reika, he explained things.

      Reika, listened at the name makes her shivers. Naachan? Did she just misheard the name? But the way he talked about her seems like she heard it right. Naachan. Did they live together? But it means, Naachan and Ryu are in relationship. She can feel blood drained from her face.

      Naachan, her best friend in high school; the one who kissed Wakatsuki on the rooftop of their school is now or still Ryu’s girlfriend. That is the only way she could describe Naachan other than her name always below Ryu’s name on monthly boards, both used to be student council, and both are in love since.. Well forever and blaah blaahh.
      Of course she still remembers that scene until now, the scene that takes place on the top of their school, during Ryu’s last day together with them before he moved. She has decided to confess her feelings to him, but Naachan unexpectedly shares the same idea with her and slightly faster than her in taking action. That day, she was thinking.. If and only if she was quicker, she will be the one who met his lips.

      Only if..

      But no, she was a minute late. The moment she arrived, her eyes met Naachan unreadable expression and like a drama, she witnessed her best friend kiss her childhood friend whom she has crushed since forever. She kissed him on the lips, lightly. But it breaks her heart so much that she just ran away after Naachan return her tears with her relieved face.

      Since then, she can only treat Naachan as normal as she could. First, because Naachan never knew they have same feeling on the same person. Second, for whatever reason it is, Naachan is the only friend she has in school and she is the only friend Naachan has. But that was then, before Naachan too moved away after six month Ryu left her. It is the last time she met Naachan. And she has been alone since then; nobody ever replaced both people in her life.

      Somehow, now she feels annoyed at Wakatsuki Ryu. Annoyed that he never informed this to her, to her mom that he is living with ‘someone’ and didn’t want his privacy to be disturbed by anyone. And how he still can accept other girl to live with him when his girlfriend is away?! Man is such unbelievable creature!

      “Reika!” Ryu calls again when he saw Reika frozen at her spot in front of the room. “You can just come in.” He gestured her to come in with his warm eyes and smile.

      Sure, she can’t complain much about that even her heart ached more and more. She just need to accept whatever given to her by her landlord, didn’t she? So she just prays that she will have more patience in the future. ‘This is just beginning Reika..’ She thought at herself and step into the room anyway.

      Her life is just begun. Should she anticipate more after this? Or should she prepare herself against two lovey dovey people? She guesses that, she could just think her way to avoid them next time. But right now, Reika can only sigh again and again; she had lost her spirit to live for today.

       “You can clean yourself now while I’m going to prepare for dinner.” After showing Reika what he got in his apartment, he beamed his usual warm smile, reveal his only dimple on his right cheek.

      “Uh, oh sure.” She already lost her mind to answer properly. Her energy has totally drained upon what she faced today. She lives with her childhood friend, she still has feelings for him, but he is in relationship with her best friend. She is in perfect world for an evening drama. So much drama to be truth.

       “I’ll be waiting at you in the kitchen.”

      After Ryu left, Reika pinches her head, it just passed few hours and she already has headache. She decides to take bath after 10 minutes of her deep thinking about everything.


      Reika finished clean herself and put her sweater on with long tracksuit. Well, even for that she surely takes time thinking what to wear. Because she is now living with a man whom his girlfriend aka her best friend is away. Shouldn’t she be careful? She stepped out from the room just to meet the handsome sight of Ryu wearing an apron; busily arranging dishes on the table and when he senses her presence, he beams his smile; gesturing her to take a seat. Reika returns it with forceful smile of hers.

       “Curry. I cook curry for you.”

      Before Reika could open her mouth to ask, Ryu already answer it with obvious answer. Curry, she already smells it from the room and it makes her forget all her troubles for today.
      “As expected, curry never fails to make you smiles.” He exclaimed proudly while taking a seat facing Reika.

      Reika nods for severals time, expressing her feelings through them. She can’t deny the fact anyway.

       “Itadakimasu.” They both said before devour on their late evening meals.

      Both just fell into deep silence, no one takes a lead to talk, or to stop enjoying the meals. And as she still remembers, Wakatsuki Ryu is truly a good cook. Which totally opposite with her, well she can’t cook. Or much to say, she was never given the opportunity to discover it herself. Not when her mom always there for her, prepared everything she need in her life. But to Ryu, he is the youngest with both working parents; he was always being bullied by his brother and sister. Even so, she envied of him. Not only because he can cook but everything about him is perfect, so unlikely with her. He is like man she can never reach. He is handsome, genius, sporty and a good cook, even she needs to list it, it will be never ending list and just makes her fall deeper into his charms. She is like, completely defeat against him.

      “What course you gonna take Reika?” He asked, after some time being silence. Try to shush away the thick air of awkwardness around them.

       “Social science.”

      “Great, same like Naachan.” He exclaimed with so much joys in his eyes.

      Again, she is speechless. Anyway, “Just great.” She gives her best ‘insincere’ smiles. But deep there, she is banging her own head on the table and rolled her eyes inwardly. She is so frustrated. How can she forget that, they have promise with Naachan too, and what made her think that Naachan can’t get into the same university as Ryu? Stupid Reika!

      “Then you can be together again like always.” Ryu grinned toothily, totally happy and immersed in his own imagination of both girls still like to cling to each other like he used to know them, not knowing what had happen since he left five years ago.

      Again, she could only reply with nods. “And you?”


      “Ahh, sokka. So expected from you.” And Reika still remembered the old times when Ryu always draw her abstract picture and gave it to her. Wakatsuki Ryu she know, never changes. But, the facts pained her more. Not because he hurts her, but because she could never forget him whom supposed to be only her childhood love. But the feelings grow deeper than just a childhood love after years. She can’t just erase her feeling toward him that easily. She can’t just forget all of his kindness and care since they were babies. Yet, even after five years without contacting each other, he just treats her the same way he always does. And she needs to treat him, like her normal friend too. That is what pained her more, he seems more out of her reached when he just before her eyes.

      “Let’s go out tomorrow.” Ryu bluntly proposed, making Reika flustered with his sudden offer.

      “Come on, let’s celebrate our first meeting. I miss to spent time with you.” He said in calm voice; try to hide the melancholy at the end of his sentence by looking down into his empty bowl.

      Reika blinked her eyes twice and trice. She thought she just heard the words wrongly. He misses her? What in world? She still flustered.

      “It is okay if you don’t want to.” Ryu tried to sound like he wasn’t affected despite his face explained otherwise. He didn’t expect this reaction from her.

      “Un, of course I want to. You are my best friend after all.” Reika answers joyful, makes Ryu to look up into her in instant. Their eyes finally met and she could see all the light in his brown orbs. He looks genuinely happy, just like Ryu she knew. She nods again, confirming.

      “But where would we go?”

      “Amusement park?”

      “Sounds good!”

You, why you did this to me? The title, all this WakaRei + WakaNana and then WakaNanaRei living together  :bleed eyes:

I must admit genben hasn't been that appealing for me when it comes to N46, but after last Nogbingo!7 with Wakatsuki-kun and Kazuya....  :imdead:
Anyway Reika’s parents, how can you leave your daughter with a guy? Even if he’s a childhood friend, they’re WakaRei, you know? It could get dangerous  XD
I’m torn between wanting WakaNana to truly be in a relationship or not. Although why does it feel like it was just in Reika’s head that they’re together? WakaNanaRei always complicated  :fainted:

Wakatsuki Ryuu

      He has everything what everyone being dreamed of, a perfect family with a loving mother, Wakatsuki Mirei who is a famous designer, a father, Wakatsuki Hideki who own a hospital, a step brother who also a famous cancer specialist and a step sister who likes an old woman. His family is perfect, being honored by everyone who might know them. So since he was born, he was thought to prioritize his study and become the number one student in school. His father wants him to be the heir of their hospital, because he is the one who carry the true blood of Wakatsuki’s family, unlike his brother and sister. So, he obeyed him, be the number one student in school, having few friends or none at all.

      His life was merely at school in the day, in their own library at night and went to sleep at 11 pm, woke up at 6 just to continue another boring day in school. The goal of his life was already was set since he was born, be a doctor and make proud of his family. That is what he always tried to do in his everyday life. Although he doing it half-heartedly. Unlike his father who dedicating his whole life for his dreamy hospital, he was not into it at all. What he truly loves are art, drawing and design. But, except he is doing it furtively so his father won’t mad at him or if not, he can’t at all.

      Back in his hometown, he loves living there just for one reason and only one. For the first time, he has friend even it supposed to be just a family gathering between his father and his best friend but he happy anyway. Because that is the first time he learnt the meaning of friendship and happiness. Sakurai Reika, his very best friend. Reika knew him the best, what he actually loves to do, so she frequently asked him to her house to spend more time in doing what he loves. There was a time when they messed up the water color as paint and painted in on the walls. They ended up being scolded by Reika’s mom, but they laugh afterwards. The drawings of their hands were then being the witness of their own little promise. ‘Let’s be together forever.’ He still remembered that small innocent promise.

      “How come you can be happy when you’re not doing what you love?” Reika, once told him when they were just 9. At that time, he still can’t process the sentence, even he is a genius, but things unrelated to study are completely a hindrance for him. So he ignored her advice when he asked for her how to be happy. Reika, at that time, know him too well. How he always pushing himself to do what his family wants, specifically what his father asked him for. Because, he thought that.. If his father is happy, so do him.

      Even after they moved out from their hometown because his father finally got the chance to stabilize the hospital, he suffered more than he think he would be. If before he could do this, he could push himself to be patient; he could force himself to further study in medical. But it is not, he was wrong because the only support he has back there was now long gone. Reika was not here by his side to support him, to company him doing some crazy games where he could laugh all he want until his stomach hurts, he no longer know how to ease his stress at all without her. At that time, during his very first year in medical course, he finally understood what she actually meant. ‘To be happy, do what you love.’ He couldn’t be this miserable; he skipped his class, drunken tones of alcohol and sleep like a log in his own apartment. The best part of it, he was alone and nobody will disturb him anymore.

      That is what he doing before he finally come to decision to stop studying medical and pursue his own interest in design. It took his father a month of to allow him to change college. He surely mad, but his mother make a good effort in persuade her stubborn husband. It is time for Wakatsuki Hideki to finally entrust the hospital to his step-son Hashimoto Naoki. It is time for him to finally acknowledge that the young man actually a very good doctor and capable leader. And to Wakatsuki Ryuu, he couldn’t be this happy for himself and his step-brother.         

      But the worst part of his decision to study design is, his family no longer supports his daily life expenses, so he needs to work hard to live his dream. Good enough his father didn’t took the apartment he gave him when he was first accepted into the most prestigious medical college in Japan. Though at first he faced a very hard time to find part time job, but he got it with a little help from his friend, Shiraishi Jun and the pay was enough for him alone. That is not the only hardship he had to go through, balancing his study with his first part time job since it was really tiring and he hardly could pay attention in class. Surely, he didn’t want to waste the chance to fail but he was once the genius so he got to do it every time without sacrificed other thing.
      But still, he has something he always wants. He wanted to meet her again one day, Reika. His childhood friend whom also his first love, but she never knew it because the time he want to confess during their last meeting, she didn’t come. He was disappointed, but he never stopped praying to meet her again, how he wished that Reika will never forget their small promise to learn in same university. She apparently, didn’t forget that, even she was late few years and has to retake the entrance exam, she did it anyway. He found his eternal happiness once again when his father asked his permission to let Reika live with him. Well both of their families are really close, so his father might found it is hard to turn down Reika’s parents’ request. And he said yes without any seconds. He would love that. Why won’t him?

      Before he had to separate from Reika, he never realized that she is the biggest turning point in his life. She teaches him a lot of things he wouldn’t get from class lesson. Reika is his real happiness. And last two days, he found his happiness again. His believes was paid, at least that is what he thinks as he always believed that they will meet again one day. He believes in fate and that worth it.

      And now, here they are laughing all their might in amusement park. The sight of her laughing before his eyes felt like dream but it is too real to be dream. And he wanted to enjoy all this precious moment with her.

      He smiles as his eyes catches the view of his best friend, Sakurai Reika jumped happily when she received huge teddy bear from him. Well, that is the present he got after he succeed in shot down all pins. Today, like they have promised, they spent time together at amusement park, and Reika never failed to amaze him. He could never stop laughing from her reaction. She is genuinely cute with her two big eyes that show big interest in everything she saw, that is what he always thought.

      They spent three hours at amusement park, play everything they could, laugh out loud as much as their tummy could hold. Both of them was like two small kid who never go to amusement park, probably that is what people would think about them when they just jumping all around enjoying every game they played, even if they lost in the game.

      Though three hours was insufficient for them, but they have to move since he has another plan for that day. He wants to introduce Reika to all his friends in college. Because the fact that he finally met her again after five years he was totally happy with it until the thought are occupying his entire mind right now. So he wanted all of his friends knew her, the one he always talked about. They met at one café near the college.

      Everyone already arrived when he came, he was welcomed by loud of commotions from his friends. Well, all men are like that, he didn’t mind the reaction anyway, he used to it already but Reika seemed timid about that. Well, since she is the only girl in the group and meeting new people is not her specialty anyway.

      “I’m Shiraishi Jun, I’m in the Baseball team with Waka.” One man named himself as Shiraishi Jun stood up and shook Reika hand. He has a very pale skin which likeable among girls with almost red color hair. He smiles, revealed his white teeth.

      Reika could only nod two times, digesting the name. So, he plays baseball too now, she save the information in her head tightly. 

      “Takayama Kazuo. I’m in the same class with him. Yoroshiku nee~” Takayama Kazuo also stand up; give a little salute to Reika and smiles cheekily. Though his appearance seems handsomely messy, he has the warm smiles that would melt any girls’ heart.

      Again, Reika stores the information in her head though she thinks the entire information aside the name was not really important to her. And even he has a warm smile, she couldn’t help herself but to think Kazuo is a type of boy who loves to play with girls’ heart. So she back off a little bit, alert with the flirty gaze she received from him.

      “Misao des, Eto Misao.” Another man stand up, shook Reika hand and winks to her. He laugh sneakily as Reika’s reaction of being scared amused him so much. Why would scare of him when he just wink? He pretended to hurt by her reaction but then he laughed again saying he just joking with her.

      “Hai hai, that’s enough.” Ryuu interrupted, stopping his friends from teasing Reika. “This is my childhood friend, Sakurai Reika, from now on she will be in study at the same place with us so please take care of her.” Ryu said on behalf of Reika, while she just smiles and nod half-heartedly. Everyone slowly stop laughing after that and then they noticed another person still immersed in food, not even shows interest of what happening around him. All eyes on one man in black sweater, munching food like he never ate before. 

      “Oii Ikuo! Stop eating!” Everyone spokes at the same time, makes Reika’s eyes landed on him right away, she never realized he was there. So she has a little interest in him. His blank clumsy face is catching her interest if she needs to be honest about him. So she smiles back at him when he finally speaks.

      “Oh, yoroshiku. Ikuo Eri des.” He said without lifted his head from his food, not really pay attention to what happening around him. Even so, everyone just laughs at his usual behavior, he always lost in his own world of food.

      After that, they are just eating while chatting about various topics. But most of them were focused on Ryuu’s past and present. The boys would talk how really serious in his life. Their frequencies are really far from him, because everyone loves to joke around but Ryu sometimes can’t take the jokes or not even understood it. And because of his serious personality, they hard to believe it when Ryuu said he used to have a friend back in his hometown since he is the one who not really socialize with people or more specifically girl, but now they had to believe him since the proof just before their eyes. Ryuu could only pouting from the attacks but inside, he not really cares about it anyway.
      Reika, was just listening to the boys chatting, rarely interrupting them but when she was asked some questions, she will answer it honestly even there is time when she stumbled upon her words because of nervousness, well not really. That is because her popcorn characters anyway, her nervousness just adding the end value of it.

      It was 6 in the evening when Ryuu finally excused himself and Reika to go home first. Reika thought it was a sudden request because she never knew he had another appointment Sbut she just follow him, he is her tour guided for today too. She doesn’t want to go home yet not because she really enjoying the time they had together but if they went home this early, they will be alone, and it spelled as awkward to her. No matter how they enjoy activities for today, she was like that because they are in public. She is comfortable with him that way, otherwise when they are alone in private space; she couldn’t act like herself anymore.

      “Oh, are you going to hospital after this?” Like he already memorized Ryuu’s schedule, Jun asked. His question was replied with a little nod, affirmed his question.

      “I should be there by 4 actually but I delayed it.” He said while hurriedly wear his coat, like he is in really hurry. He looks at Reika, making sure the girl are ready to go, they exchange small nod in between as answer. They then bid goodbyes before parting.

      Like she predicted, the air was tense in the car as she can only stay silence with nothing to talk too and Ryuu too engrossed in his driving. She sometimes would furtively glance to her side just to find her heart once again beating crazily with his cool side when driving. In splits of seconds, she turns to the road again, not realize that Ryuu also looking at her secretly after that with a satisfy smile tucked on his lips.

      He never feels this happy and satisfied like today before. 

      “I’m sorry I can’t bring you with me to the hospital.” He reasoning his doing why he is not bringing her with him after this scared that she was hurt by his act.

      Reika shakes two three times, try to deny his thought but noticing that Ryuu wouldn’t see it she answer it softly. “It’s okay. I know you’re busy, since uncle need you too in the hospital right.” That is what she actually thinking. And that is what exactly her mom had told her, ‘Ryuu was busy managing his life in university and his family’s hospital so please don’t disturb him’. Even so, why would she disturb his life anyway? She is merely nothing to him. She inwardly sighed at her own thought.

      After that, the air was just filled with some silence and sound of working air conditioner. They not talking anymore with Ryuu to focus on his driving even the journey from where they were to his apartment are not too far which giving them little time to have a long talk because the time he wanted to open his mouth again, they already reach at his apartment.

      Ryuu quickly stepped out from his car and run to open the door for Reika even before the girl could do so. He just giggled when she clumsily try to accept his small gratitude. “Thanks for spending time with me today.” He abruptly said. Making the girl shakes her head, denying.

      “It’s me who need to thank you, I enjoy today outing.” She looks down, somehow feeling shy to admit that she actually feels happy to be with him again. Its feel like dream come true, and even just for a short period, she wanted to enjoy contently.

      “Let’s go out again sometime if so.” Looking at her shy respond, he cannot help but to chuckle. “That’s it. I will go after watching you in.” He pushed Reika softly, forcing her to enter the building into his apartment. And the girl has no choice but to walk in reluctantly. He waved happily when he catches the scene of Reika looking at him behind her shoulder. How happy his actually is already presented on his face with his genuine smiles.

      After making sure Reika safely inside the building, he then entered his car once again, moving to his next destination with smiles never leaving his face. 

      All the way to the hospital, he hummed happily while tapping on the car steering. Until he arrived at his father hospital, he greets the usual guard stand on the gate and after that missing at underground parking. He leisurely walk along the hallway, he sometimes flashed his bright smiles to all the nurses he passed by and as they already familiar with his antics casually smiles and wave back at him. Growing up in as the director son, everyone knew and familiar with him, he is the one they used to have high expectation to be their next director. Though after he decided would stop study in medical, he still come here occasionally and now has become one of his usual routine for some specific reason.

      Passing the register counter to the elevator, without thinking twice, he pushed the button to the tenth floor when he entered elevator. He whistled incoherently just to fill the empty air in the box. He walked out as soon as the elevator opened and right away take a sharp turn to the left. Again, as he familiar with the space, he cautiously slide open the door to a room.

      Catch a calm figure with long dark brown hair sit while sketching something on her drawing pad, a serene smile plastered on his lips. This is what has become his solid reason of visiting hospital every evening and today’s delay was something he felt guilty. He silently closed the door; plan to surprise the girl with his sudden visit. He tiptoed to the bed, avoiding her line of view.

      “Hi Naachan.”

      “Ahh Ryuu!”

      Even before he could surprise his girlfriend, Nishino Nanase or he used to call her Naachan, the girl suddenly look at his direction, like she already sensed his naughty plan. He pouted as response and makes the girl giggle happily with his failed jokes and cute expression.

       Ryuu grinned widely at Naachan who just calmly leaning to her bed after closing her drawing pad and set it aside. She has usual white gown on her body with tubes on her hand, some wires attached at her body to some machines showing regular wave of her heart. Though she looks paler than normal person, she still smiles brightly.

      “You are in good mood today. Is something happen?” Naachan commented right after Ryu entered her room. It never missed from her eyes, not whenever she has her round spectacles on her nose which now laying on top of the drawing pad. 

      “Oh, you can say so.” Ryuu quickly admitted and takes his usual seat, not on the seat prepared for visitors but on her bed together with her. As he plays with the tubes on attached to her hand, and Naachan just observed his usual behavior, silenced fall between them. But it is not silence that distancing them, it is a comfortable silence. Where he would intently plays with the tubes attached on her hand which have become his routine nowadays and Naachan would only giggles at his attitude. That is when, silence sounds so beautiful between two peoples with sometimes was accompanied by the beeping sound from the machine besides the bed. He eyed on the half empty plate on the desk not too far from her bed. She must be just finished dinner while waiting for him to arrive, and like always she only eats in small amount.

      “You have eaten your dinner already?” He casually asked. Naachan nodded and smiling widely, showing her two big front teeth. “I’m sorry. I couldn’t accompany you this evening.” He lowered his head in guilty. Well, usually he would arrived by four in the evening, which give him more time to spend with her, to have dinner together, but since he has something to do earlier he just couldn’t do it today. Making Naachan to eat alone make him felt guilty.

      “It’s okay, MaiMai was here before. She just left and after that you came.” She smiled reassuringly. Know what actually play on Ryuu’s head.

      Knowing Naachan, he knew the girl would never angry at him as she herself would say that he should take a day leave from visiting her, but he just can’t doing so when his girlfriend was here, fighting the pain on her own. The thinking that he couldn’t even share the pain is enough to make him feel guilt more than ever. He swiftly slides his hand to her waist, closing the distance between them and cautiously entangled their hand in process, afraid to hurt her if the tubes move from his action.

      And to Naachan, nothing more she want than his warm touch on her skin which making her calm, she tighten their grips, squeeze his hand like she used to do. She knew it, that Ryuu has become too careful with her whenever she was admitted to the hospital for her regular checkup. Have family as doctors make the man more than understanding how it actually feel to be in the hospital though it was different than to be patient like her. So, by doing this she hopes it is enough to assure him that she was okay.

      “You know, I have good news for you.” Ryuu finally spokes and looked into her eyes. The distance between them was like five centimeter only. Naachan nods, giving a cue to continue. “I know you would love this.” He said, running around the bushes and she nod again.

      “I’m doing this because I think of you.” He said with soft voice as low as the beeping sign of the machine.

      And she still replied his talk with a small nod and wide smile, silently anticipated what he was going to say, because whatever it is, it must be something big to make him this playful; even he usually this playful.

      “So, I hope you don’t misunderstand this with something else.” Again he looked down and play with the tubes before her hand stalling him from doing that anymore, she means that – stops run around the bushes actually.

      “And what is that?” She finally asked cannot contain her anxiety anymore. “Is that become the reason why you are this happy today?” Her question brings his face facing her once again; shock by the fact that she could read that through his reaction. He laughed awkwardly; try to hide his own funny feeling after being busted by her thorough observation. As expected, he can hide nothing from her. Their eyes meet in the processes of exchanging unreadable feelings.

      For couple of seconds, they silently stay with Ryuu’s eyes trailed around her face and stopped on her pale dry captivating lips. But it was then, before he wetted it with some soft kiss on it. He smiles in amusement as she was obviously stunned by abrupt kiss from him. Naachan, even she has gotten used to it, still blushing by every simple act of her boyfriend. He laughed while pinching on her red cheeks.

      “I decided to take Reika into our apartment.” He exclaimed with a low voice after some silence, but Naachan noticed a slight hesitation in his voice. He looks down to their entangled hand. “My father, ask me to take her in. It is not like I’m not willing but because she is our best friend too.” He paused, thinking the right sentence to convince her. “And I would like you to have friend at home too when I was out to work.. And I don’t want you to feel..”

      “Ryuu.” Naachan intervened even before he could finish his explanation. He looks up and met with her warm gaze. “I know your intention. So don’t worry, I’m not mad.” She smiles, reassuring Ryuu with her big smile and clear eyes. “I’m happy too, she is our best friend so why not? It is better this way. To be together again, that is what you always wanted right?” Her voice softens and he just simply nods. “And I would not feel lonely when you’re working right?” She added, knowing what exactly he was thinking, everything will be about her.

      “Will you tell Reika to wait for me? I can’t wait to meet her.” She tightened their grips and move closer to him before landed her head on his wide shoulder. She could hear his heart calmly beating inside and feel a slight nod from him as answer and once again deep silence fell between them.

      Silence is PURE. It draws people closer together. Because those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. They speak in silent language through heart frequencies.

      It is always like this between them. Ryu will come to visit her every day, though he insist to take care for her day and night when she was schedule for her usual treatment, but Naachan will always rejected the offers with excuse he will be tired for his class and his part time job too. Aside from she already used to it, she didn’t need him to care for her every time she was admitted. He already has done more than enough. So when he came to meet her in the evening after class, they would talk about small things either it is his or her worries or random joke that makes her laugh all her heart out while leaning to his tough body.

      To Nishino Nanase, she always loves his warmth, it soothing her as much as warm milk will make her. Because to Naachan, his presence alone is enough to make her feels that nothing will go wrong; like she has nothing to be worried about. Is this what people called love? She didn’t know about it since she never experience things like that, but she was sure that she would do anything to be in this situation every day. Well, her every day not that long anyway so she would appreciate this little comfort from him. What are more relaxing than to talk with someone you love, alone in their private space? And Wakatsuki Ryuu is that someone to her, someone she always look upon to, since she was introduced to him by Reika, she knew it already it is him.

      While for Ryuu, ever since he met Naachan again approximately one year ago through his best friend, Jun. Jun, at first he was overjoyed to introduce his first love to him and it turn out that his first love is Naachan. During that time, he thought that miracle has fall onto him because he could finally meet one of his high school friend. He was totally happy until he learnt that she actually sick. The fact that she has nobody, he chooses to take her into his apartment and the girl miraculously becomes his first girlfriend. Ever since he decided to take care of her, he has found another thing to be fulfilled in his life. He wanted to be someone who can change her life, but to admit it, Naachan who actually change his life so much.

      She makes him realized that how precious this life is, that he learnt how to appreciate everything he has including her. Then, he knew how scared it if he someday had to let go of her. Even she is severely sick, she never stop fighting, not for herself but for everyone she love, ‘I want to see everyone that I love happy’ she once exclaimed that when he asked her why she is being too positive with her life. By time, Naachan teach him that everything is not about himself but people around him. And if one reason is more than enough to be happy so why have to care about lots of reason not to be happy even if it means that the entire world goes against her. She at least, wants to be happy, more or less. And that has become his solely mission; to make her happy and he wants her to keep living her life to the fullest.

      So he promised to take care of her, to be with her when she is in pain, to be her only medicine she need. Because to him, Naachan is like carrying a torch for him, enlighten his everyday life, giving him more reason to live his life; in some ways, Naachan has become important in his life, the solid reason why he would fight anything for her. He wanted her to be happy with him, although it is not for long. To make her happy, he would always appear in bright smiles though deep there, he felt painful for her, looking at her desperately try to live her life positively. But still, it is the best way now.

      Naachan, is a lovable person who really love to laugh even her laugh is sound like a baby laugh. But that is what makes him love her more than what he supposed to because no matter how many he repeated the same lame jokes, she will always give a good response to it. Either it about Jun who used to crush on her but then was rejected or about Miona whom she self-declared Naachan’s junior.

      Jun used to crush or probably still likes Naachan and he always making fun of him in front of Naachan, telling her how many times per day Jun warned him if he hurt her or makes her cry, Jun will kill him. He knew it is Naachan who makes Jun cried when she reject him. So, Ryuu will always makes a joke about that, until now, if he teased Jun this, Jun will pout cutely at him like a girl asking for lollipop. Then Naachan would laugh until tears come out from her eyes. And when Jun came to visit her in hospital, she too will make fun of Jun, said he is like a girl who loves to cook. The fault of perfect Shiraishi Jun is he has the feminine side which loves to cook, but who calls it minus point except them who loves to tease him. But still, he will bring her lovely obento each time he came to visit, once or twice a time. To Ryuu, Jun is the gentlemen himself because despite he was rejected by Naachan and she becomes his best friend’s girlfriend, he still regularly visits her. That is the additional point for already perfect Shiraishi Jun.

      While for Miona who lived next door, he don’t know what is wrong with that absent-minded girl. She is too persistent when it comes to Naachan, always force him to bring Naachan’s favorite flower, dandelion. No matter how much he resisted saying that dandelion makes no sense as it will be bald once he reached hospital. Yet, Miona succeed in forcing him bring them to her although it already bald when he gave her that and she would laugh until she felt pain in her stomach. They both love dandelion so much until Miona claimed herself as Naachan’s junior of Dandelion fan club, does it makes sense? But, even for the same story of Miona begging him to bring dandelion, it never failed to make her laugh joyously, till to the points she will tear up from it, every time.

      “I talked to MaiMai earlier.” Naachan said after momentarily silent fall between them with only their fingers intertwined within each other.

      “Unn?.” He gives a simple reply, giving her more time to talk about Maimai, whom also second doctor in charge of her, aside from his own brother. If it about Maimai, he knew it only meant two things; about her health or his brother Hashimoto Naoki but the second case has become too frequent nowadays. To his surprise, MaiMai actually often shares her complaint about his brother to her. How Naoki too cold with her even they have dating more than two years now and he can’t complain a thing about it since Noaki is naturally likes that.

      “She said I could go home tomorrow.” She lifted her gaze to him, her eyes shines brightly as she delivered the news, he also doing the same thing make their lips coincidentally meet in between. They laugh after sharing another gentle kiss.

      “Honto?” He cannot contain his happiness anymore upon the sudden news. Supposed to be, it usually takes her more than one week to be discharged. If it true, then it must be good, her health must be improved.

      She nodded, assuring her boyfriend one more time. “I can’t wait to meet Reika.” She landed her head on Ryuu’s shoulder again and continues to play with her big hand and listen to rhythm of his calm heart beating.

      He too, replied with a nod, agreeing. Reika too, must be happy when they finally could meet because according to Naachan, she too moved away a year after he moved. Then, it must be really hard time for Reika after that; he always thinks that which also his true intention accepting her into his apartment two days ago.

      So, like that Ryuu will stay with her for several hours, lay beside her, sing her some lullaby until she fell asleep just then he will leave. But his heart was still reluctant as it already so he will wait few more minutes just to confirm Naachan already in state of deep sleep before left. Then, after brushing her soft black hair and landed some kisses on her forehead, he left the room. Promise to come again the next day. By then, it’s already 11 pm.

      Outside the room, he finally slides down the walls and fall to his feet. His expression show some despair and pain. In front of Naachan, he always putting a stoic face outside, masked every inner feeling and inner conflict of his. It might be lies if he said he is okay, he never not, though Naachan is the one who sick, but she is much stronger than him. He felt like, he is the one who borrowing her inner strength, because he never saw her cry. Not even once. Yet, he can’t bear all the feeling inside. He felt despair, sadness and lost whenever he looks at her smiles and hear her laugh. Why god so cruel?

(A/N: I know, I know... I was too cruel to make Naachan this pitiful and my heart also crying deep inside here. And as WakaRei shipper, I feel it hard to write WakaNana scenes. But as I said before, this is my friend story, I help her to write it so the story is up to her, I promised her not to change it. Anyway, feel free to drop comments as it will make my day and keep my spirit to update! Jaa ne.)


ミサキ: Thanks for always reading and supports me.
i don't know someone would waiting for WakaNanaRei.. but i think i should thank my friends for giving me her idea. this purely hers. i'm just helping her to write it.. so credit to her  :yossi:

and here you are, the next chapter. sorry if it too long and below your expectations.  :ptam-shy:

 and thanks for always supporting me  :shy2:

C: LOLss.. I'm sorry, because some scene was taken from THAT mv (you know what i'm talking about right)  :wahaha:

I must admit genben hasn't been that appealing for me when it comes to N46, but after last Nogbingo!7 with Wakatsuki-kun and Kazuya....  :imdead:
Anyway Reika’s parents, how can you leave your daughter with a guy? Even if he’s a childhood friend, they’re WakaRei, you know? It could get dangerous  XD

i know, me too... and i was glad i make this genben before that episode and now i'm dying for Wakatsuki-kun! i love him  :luvluv1:  :imdead:

 :on asmo: i know right.. it can be dangerous.. but NaachaN SHOULD be back soon (i hope) so no worry  :mon psst:

I’m torn between wanting WakaNana to truly be in a relationship or not. Although why does it feel like it was just in Reika’s head that they’re together? WakaNanaRei always complicated  :fainted:

Poor Waka-sama, the burden of being an heir of a successful family. But I’m glad he was allowed to pursue what he likes even if he doesn’t get help.

Asdfghjkllkjhfgsgaf WakaNana moments!! I really like their calm relationship, I adore the kind of couple who can be comfortable together in silence. Finally a fic where WakaNana kiss!  :lol:

What’s the deal with Miona obsessing over Naachan?  XD  Dandelion like in Kidzuitara Kataomoi? Oh boy....
Despite all this nice WakaNana, there’s so many things worrying like WakaRei being each other’s first love, Naachan’s unclear sickness (Naoki is a cancer specialist, could it be?), WakaNana themselves for not being sure what “love” is and their relationship might just be not romantic? (hopefully not).
And at the same time there are also things that could stop WakaRei from happening: WakaNana, potential Ikuo-Reika.

Either WakaNana and WakaRei feels doomed  :mon exhaust:  Gosh, can this just be WakaNanaRei instead?  :P
There’s HashiGawa!  :cow:

Yeah, I can never forget Reika’s murderous face in that MV. I mean Reika mostly only used that kind of face when someone took her Wakachu away like in Nogibingo with Manatsu.

Actually the WakaNana isn’t breaking my heart, if anything it’s so precious. Because usually in other fics there’s WakaNana but the chance of them being together is unlikely even if one of them has a crush on the other. So thank your friend for making this WakaNana together, my WakaNana shipper heart is happy  :yep:

Anyway, happy new year!

(A/N: I'm sorry if this too long but please enjoy.)



      SHE still remembered the memories from five years ago.

      On the rooftop of their school, where she finally confessed her feelings to him, Wakatsuki Ryuu the only boy that makes her heart beating so much. And she still can smile upon remembering her own childish act after confessing, she didn’t expect herself to be such kind of girl that can make a first step of kissing a boy. Ryuu that time, only looked at her with wide eyes in shocked but she only can blush.

      “At least, I want you to remember me this way.” That is what she said without being asked. “Whether it is five years or ten years later. I will wait for your answer.”

      She then ran away, being embarrassed but proud at the same time. Though that is the last time they met. But again, as fresh as the old memories, she also still remembered the painful memories from a year ago; where she was diagnosed with stage four of lung cancer. It was bad, she understood it too well as her mother also suffered from same disease and passed away when she only six. She knew nothing at that time, but as she grew up, she learnt about the disease and now that disease eating her alive from inside. How irony it is?


      A year ago, at a park where she supposed to give answer to her classmate, Shiraishi Jun about his confession a week before, instead he found her lying on the ground. Unconscious. He was quick enough to bring her to the hospital. It was then she was informed with deathly diseased of her. It’s like a bomb had been implanted inside her and waiting to explode, it instead a cancer.
      But then, it also wrong timing of meeting him again. Unknowingly, Jun actually brought her to his friend’s hospital and that friend of Jun is no other but Wakatsuki Ryuu, not to mention that her doctor is also his brother, Hashimoto Naoki a cancer specialist. That is when she met him. She still remembered vividly the sight of him, shock, broken and despairs when he was told about her diseased by his own brother after he insisted it so much, almost punching his own brother for not telling him his patients confidential information.

      The first time they met again is the first time he had to accept that she was left with maximum three years to live. She probably couldn’t make it for two years.

      The news, though it was too cruel for her, too painful for her but it was more pricking inside her when she saw he cried for the first time. He not uttered a word after their first meeting in his brother room, but he just cried and fell to his knee. Fate are playing on them, is what she thought of that time. Why made them met again in this condition? Why he had to watch her dying? Or maybe, destiny has a better plan for her, at least she able to meet him during her last year. Should she be thankful or not?

      She heard from Jun the day after that, of how Ryuu really appreciate each friendship he built with his friends and so she is. She knew it already, she befriends with him since elementary school, and she knew how little friend he has and each of them hold a special position in his heart.

      Eventually Jun told her, how he was broken for her, of how Ryuu was mad at himself for nothing, of how Ryuu pledged to his family to save her, to save his dearest friend. She wanted to meet him, but Ryuu literally running away from her the day he heard of her death sentence.

      Three days later, after so much hustle Jun has to go through in order to drag Ryuu to  meet her, it was the first time they talked to each other, the first time she heard of his broken voice aside from his crying last day, the first time she met his eyes properly. She stills remembered his state from that day, messy hair, disgruntled face, untidy shirts and he smells of alcohol. Did he just turn into that condition because of her? She was touched by how he actually cared for her despite she was just a friend and she knew, he still loves that someone.

      “Why you do this Ryuu?” She asked, wanted to know really badly of his true intention.

      “You are my precious friend.” He answered with his eyes looked down to the floor. He was just standing there, 50 feet away from her, ashamed of his state right now.

      “Sokka..” She can only nod with his answer. Deep there, she felt disappointed, because he still thinks of her just as a friend. They fall into momentarily silence of what seems like forever.

      “I have accepted my fate.” She saw he flinched from the corner of her eyes. Maybe he can’t believe how easy for her to accept it when he himself has to fight the reality. She smiles when their eyes meet, saying that she was telling the truth.

      “I have nobody, my mom passed away when I just 6 and I ran away from my house.” She offered him her bitter smile and he looks shocked of what she just concluded her life with such short sentence. “When we moved to Australia, my dad remarried. He has his own family now, but I’m belonged here. So I ran away and he doesn’t want to see my face ever again.” She laughed, thinking the reasons why she should tell him her story. But she continued anyway.

      “All this time, I really wanted to meet you again but we meet in this condition.” She looked up to his eyes, but he looked away again. “I want to cherish my remaining years with precious memories, Ryuu. I don’t want to waste it like this, with you crying over my disease, with you running away from me. We just met after all.” Her dry throat felt like sand paper. But she ease it with a smile.

      He groaned, her speech probably hitting at the right spot. He was running away from her. She smiled, and then gestured for him to come closer to her. He hesitantly walked to her and stop right beside her bed. She took his hand, squeeze it comfortably.

      “Can you fill my remaining life with your love?” She asked bluntly but shyly. She dived into his flustered brown eyes. She can sense hesitation in his eyes as she begged with her eyes and smiles.

      Call her selfish, call her beggar but that is what she wanted in her life; at least with her short remaining life. She had no one, her family disregard of her existence and her only left treasure is him. Her first love and first kiss. 

      But Ryuu merely standing there with his eyes glued into their entangle fingers. She felt hurt inside. Like he was disgusted by her touch.

      “I know. I’m just a friend to you.” She said, retreated her hand from his before he pulled back. She stunned.

      “Says who?” He said, aggressively pulling her into his embrace. “You are now my first one and only girlfriend.” He declared, creating a smile on her lips. “I don’t care if your father hates you but I will go against the world for you, I will take care of you, I will protect you from everything.” His eyes that time are burning with his strong determination, touching her frail heart.

      “I will never let you die.” He promised.


      And just like that, she fights her life for him knowing that he really wants her to live her life free from cancer. It is not only his dream, she dreamt about that too, but having cancer spread inside her body is not letting her daydreaming that long. The cancer is located in such complicated position near to her heart, where chance of removing it through surgery was almost impossible and too risky. She was left with the choices of undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy in order to prolong her life. She knew both treatments too well too.

      She knew it well of how chemo will make her bald, make her no longer like a normal girl, no need to mention how painful the treatment is, so she make up her mind. She didn’t want to undergo the chemo for her cancer. Though chemo probably can increase her chance to live longer, but as Dr. Hashimoto said, the chance for cancer to completely disappear was thin. She doesn’t want to gamble her life and hair. She want to live her life like a normal girl but with a cancer growing inside her.

      So she went for radiotherapy, two weeks in a month she needs to stay in the hospital. It was painful too, but she think it is okay as it will control and decreased the symptoms such as bad cough with blood and chest pain and not to make her losing her hair. She will endure the temporary pain. Again, she has Ryuu by her side.

      He stick to his promise very well, he was there when she need him, bathe her with his love, go against the reality that this is death penalty for her but he keep on believing that there will be way for her to survive. He never stopped searching a way out for her, does not believe the time limit she have, and he kept on insisting that they should operate on her. Even he knew, the chance is small, yet the smallest chance is what he wanted to believe.

      The images of his smiles, sweet talks and touch only make her happy, not noticed the presence of another girl with white coat behind her. The girl was smile brightly as she tiptoed to Naachan who stands and looks away out from the glass window.

      “Uwaahhh.” The tall girl with white coat manages to surprise Naachan as she was jolted from her previous spot. “I got you!” The older girl laughs at her reactions.

      “Mouu Maimai, you make me almost losing my heart.” Naachan complained but laugh anyway. She couldn’t even mad at her own second doctor in charge when she looks so gracious like a nun.

      “Waiting for Ryuu?” Dr. Fukagawa or also known as Maimai asked as she eyed the bags on already tidy bed. Although Naachan was one of her patient, but strangely she has grown fond of the girl’s smile and antic. Talking to her is something she looks forward every day.

      “Unn.” Happy by the fact she can go home today, she nodded with bright eyes. Two dimples formed as she smile at herself.

      “You are so lucky to have Ryuu..” Dr. Fukagawa pouted cutely as she leaned to the window, facing her patient. “He loves you so much; treat you like a princess, willing to do everything just for you.” She sighed, somehow feels jealous with the love she always witnessed every evening Ryuu came to visit. Sometimes, he talked to her but mostly, he will push her away from the room, wanted to have private time with his lover. Unlike his older brother.

      Naachan can only giggle with Maimai words. She heard it almost all the time they talked. “But Dr. Hashimoto also love you. Am I right?” She teased. Actually know it well where this conversation will go. First Maimai will talk about every charm that Ryuu have, then she will wish that it will be great if Dr. Hashimoto also has the same charm as Ryuu, not cold like ice all the time.

      “Hurmm, but he is too cold. We can’t even kiss in public.” She sighed for nth time. She cutely pouted as she leant back at the wall, facing her patient.

      This time, Naachan can’t hold her laugh anymore even she heard this sentence almost every time they talk, but who know? She never thought Maimai can have this naughty thinking in her head with her clean and pure image on outside. It is such contrary outside and inside.

      “He only said ‘I love you’ only when he confessed to me. And it has been two years since that you know?!” Maimai mumbled under her short breath, ignored the fact that she only make her patient laugh even more. “Sometime I was thinking either he love me or not..” She pouted again and ended up with heavy sigh.

      “I’m sure he loves you more than you think. Maybe he just shy?” Naachan, don’t know what she should say, so she just patted the older girl. Sometimes, she thinks that they look more like a friend or sisters than a doctor and patient. But only with this older girl she can talk freely about loves not like typical doctor who will tell her of how danger her disease is, how she should cautious with her surroundings. She knows that this is Maimai’s way of treating her, by making her laughing happily and she felt better that way. Not liking how much medications will make her wanted to puke, this is way much better than that. She was blessed to know her.

      They are just talk about random topics when Ryuu’s handsome face appeared from the door, he grinned widely. Seeing that, Maimai grumbled cutely before stomped away from the room. Just when she passed by Ryuu, they exchange small nods and smiles. She didn’t have to stay knowing that Ryuu will chase her after that too. Naachan just chuckled at the background; understand why the older girl rushed to make her way out.

      Closed the door behind him, he walked towards his girl with wide smiles plastered on his handsome face, his eyes blinking like a star. As they stand in the same spot, he pulled her into his embrace and lovingly kissing her nape down to collarbone from behind. Flattered by his usual way of welcoming, she tilted her head – feeling ticklish.

      “How you feel today?” He asked, almost fall into whisper tone, made her can’t stop from smiling. She rubbed his hand on her waist. 

      “I never have been this better.” She answered with eyes closed, savoring the tenderness in his voice and touch.

      “Ready to go home?”

      She nodded, falling deeper into his warm touch on her waist that makes her so weak to even speak the answer. But even she can’t wait to go home, away from all the machine, wires and medicine, away from her fear that she might heave her last breath here, she still find herself unable to untangle their touch on each other’s body. She found, he was so tempting with his manly voice, masculine perfume and even the smells from his toothpaste pulling her too deep into loving him. She loves him too much; too deep that she can’t stand straight on her feet without him by her side.

      So, instead just going home, she wants to swim in his embrace a little longer while gazing on the busy streets of Tokyo from the glass window, with their breath moving in same rhythm.

      ‘God, give me some time to be with him.’ Deep there, she begged. To none other than god, because she still believes pray at least plays a minor role in her life.

      Ryuu, since five minutes he was in the room, he was doing nothing except hugging his girlfriend as tight as he can. Fear of losing her too soon, he wrapped his arm around her body. He can feel every bone in her body, how she has grown thinner from all treatment she has to face.

      ‘Don’t go..’ He muttered inside, scared if he said it too loud, he might again cry in front of her. So he don’t, let his action speaks louder than his words, because she need his strength the most, because if she is weaken, so do him.

      “Let’s go?” He finally spokes after what it seems forever but just another ten minutes had passed around them. He untangled his embrace as he spokes, he turned her body in return, facing her gracious smiles which he missed so much. “Reika wait for you.” He reminded her and seeing her smiles once again.

      REIKA is now anxiously walking back and forth in the living room. The television was on but she was far from listen to the weather forecast. Her mind is now occupied by thought of how she will face Naachan after this.

      Ryuu, before he was out he has told her about Naachan coming home and can’t wait meeting her. But unbeknownst to him, Reika actually wanted to avoid that meeting. She still can’t forget the scene of both of her best friends kissing on the rooftop five years ago. How childish she is right now? But as much as she wanted to avoid her, she can’t deny the fact that she missed Naachan with her whole heart.

      She glanced to the food they have prepared beforehand; he was planned for a small celebration for their meeting after five years. He was totally excited for it whiles she was anxiously watching him doing all the cooks. Three days with him, she still found it was hard for her to come into same little space with him, afraid that her heart can’t stop flutter.

      Reika jolted from her sit when she heard someone ringing the bell. Why he so fussy about ring the bell to his own apartment? She annoyingly thought but still made her way to the door lazily. Her energy had drained out from her soul just to think about their meeting soon. She fixed her hair and created a smile on her face before twisted the door knob. ‘Calm down Reika!’

      The door stride open and the view of Ryuu with one of his hand on Naachan’s waist come to Reika’s sight. She silently gulped down.


      The moment their eyes met, Naachan already jumped into Reika. Reika too, unconsciously threw herself into Naachan, can’t deny that she missed Naachan a lot. Ryuu, just grinned and laughed at the side, the sight of two people longing for each other amused him so much. Afraid of what his neighbor might think, Ryuu pushed both girls into the house.

      “Hai hai, that’s enough because I felt lonely with no one to hug me.” Ryuu make a sulking face but then received two punches from both girls. They laughed altogether.

      “Come, I make your favorite food.” Ryuu then pulled Naachan into living room, seated her on the sofa before move to the kitchen. Reika, still felt awkward to be with Naachan then gone to help Ryuu, unnoticed the sight of Naachan eyed both of them and unconsciously smile a little bit.

      Three of them then spent hours of talking while eating dinner. Naachan sat in between two people, make Reika and Ryuu automatically facing each other. They talked several of things from the past to present, and laugh most of the time. Naachan, has the brightest expression among them. She obviously the happiest girl in the world right now, because her uppermost wishes was granted right now. Two people she wanted to meet before her life end are by her side right now. She needs nothing more than that.

      After dinner, they watch a movie recommended by Ryuu himself. It’s a romantic movie and they decided to switch off the lamp to give more vibe of the movie but Naachan can’t help to fall asleep in the middle of it, left two people too engrossed with the movie to notice her state. Until her head finally fall to her side onto Ryuu’s shoulder.

      “Naachan already sleep.” He said to Reika in whisper tone. In the midst of darkness, they exchange look and smile. “I will move her to the room first.” He slipped his hand to Naachan’s back and carried her in bride style. He is too focused to Naachan to notice the sad look in Reika’s eyes but second after that she looked away.

      “Sorry about that, Naachan probably too tired today.” He laughed as he came back. He then grabbed a bowl of popcorn before landed by Reika side and continues to watch the movie again.

      But Reika is no longer in mode to watch movir when she can feel the warmth from him and his scent is too tempting for her not to think about it. It was dark and they are watching a romantic movie which now shows the scene of two people kissing each other in a room. She felt a dangerous aura start to play around them.

      “Nee Reika, why didn’t you come to the rooftop that day?” Ryuu suddenly asked, his eyes still glued to the romantic scene and still munching the popcorn don’t even pay a look at her surprised expression.

      “What do you mean?” She asked in low surprise voice.

      “I told you to come and I wait for you but you don’t.” He voice fall too plain for her analyze his feeling.

      ‘I came but saw you kiss Naachan.’

      “I’m sorry, I feel sleepy.” She quickly avoid by leaving Ryuu alone with the movie, unable to express her real answer in true words.

      In the room, Reika finally able to heave a heavy sigh. She could feel the warm liquid starts to fall on her cheeks but she wiped it off immediately, didn’t want herself to become more emotional. The room was filled with dim light from the lamp beside the bed and she glanced to sight of Naachan who seems in deep sleep.

      Reika then climbed the bed as silent as she could, didn’t want to awake Naachan but what she didn’t realized is Naachan is not really sleep even before when they watch the movie.

      Naachan pretended to sleep just to give both of her friend chance to be together. She is not stupid not to understand the uncomfortable air around Reika, and Ryuu seems have learnt a way to trick her eyes. But no, she knew it all along, even before she stepped into the house. Ryuu was nervous.

      “Reika.” Naachan called, almost a whisper.

      “Sorry, did I wake you?”

      Naachan simply shakes and smile. She then gestured Reika to lay closer to her, she takes her hand into her grip. Reika, though she was flustered by her friend’s act didn’t retort yet created a genuine smile. She missed her.

      “Do you still love him?”

      “Eh?” Her voice rose due to pure shock.

      Naachan laughed, reassured her friend. She can see Reika was shocked with her sudden attack. “Ryuu, do you still love him?” She repeated, this time with much clearer tone and she still has that smile on her lips. She can sense Reika fall into the state of pure shock with her sudden deadly silence.

      “I know you love him.”

      “I’m not! He is your boyfriend right. I would not do that to my best friend.” Reika squeezed their hand together, denied the claim with all her might, though she might as well told that to herself. That she would never do that and she should move on now. But what she heard only laugh, Naachan is laughing and make her even flustered.

      “You can’t lie to me Reika. Ryuu too can’t lie to me. I know you love each other.” She released their grip and faced the ceiling. “But I want to ask your favor. Only this time.” She felt the warm tears fell from corner of her eyes.

      Reika too also saw the bead starts to fall to her pillow. She might think she was imagining thing but when the bead was glitters against the dim light, she knew she saw it right. Yet, she didn’t have the courage to ask or to stop the tears when she saw Naachan slowly smile again.

      “Please lend him to me just for a moment.” She turned to Reika and their eyes met. Her eyes displayed a true despair look, she begged with her eyes and tears. “I need him as my strength.” She smiled bitterly as she tried to shove away the dull feeling in her heart. “Just for short moment.”

      For a moment, Reika felt the fate is unfair to her. She felt the pricking pain in her chest and hatred start to ignite in her. Naachan knew it all this time that she love Ryuu but still she betrayed her. She closed her eyes, try to find the peace somewhere in the corner of her private space.

      “Please Reika.”

      But Naachan’s beg sound too real to her, like she was desperate for something so small yet precious, like she only had that one thing in her life. Maybe it is true, and for her Naachan and Ryuu both are her precious treasures. Either Ryuu be her love or only a friend. She found herself can be truly happy again with this people. She opened her eyes again, she looked determined as she wiped off Naachan’s wet cheeks.

      “It is true that I like him. But it was before, I already forget about the feeling. He is now only my friend and he was yours only so I won’t lend him to you since he is not even mine to begin with.” She smiled and quickly stamped her index finger onto Naachan’s lip when she wanted to speak. This is time for her to talk.

      “Both of you are my best friend, and I want both of you be happy.” She hugged Naachan tightly and can feel the tears starts to wet her shoulder. She rubbed Naachan’s back, tried to ease the feeling. She didn’t know why Naachan would cry but she knew her feeling is right. She hated seeing her friend crying.

      “Please, don’t say things like that again. And please, make Ryuu happy with you. Will you?” She smiled but the tears also start to fall to her cheeks which she wiped it right away. She has decided it herself. She should forget about what had happen between three of them. Both of them are her eternal happiness, if they are happy so do her.

      “Thank you Reika.”

(A/N: noted that all information about cancer in this chapter is not really accurate, I just research the information only at the surface. I’m sorry if this become too long since I have decided it will ended this way in this part. As usual, don’t forget to comment as it will make my day! Thanks for reading!)

I really like their calm relationship, I adore the kind of couple who can be comfortable together in silence. Finally a fic where WakaNana kiss!  :lol:

Kyakkkkk!! right, :w00t:  me too love this kind of relationship,  :deco:

What’s the deal with Miona obsessing over Naachan?  XD  Dandelion like in Kidzuitara Kataomoi? Oh boy....
Despite all this nice WakaNana, there’s so many things worrying like WakaRei being each other’s first love, Naachan’s unclear sickness (Naoki is a cancer specialist, could it be?), WakaNana themselves for not being sure what “love” is and their relationship might just be not romantic? (hopefully not).
And at the same time there are also things that could stop WakaRei from happening: WakaNana, potential Ikuo-Reika.

Idk, just feel want to add some humor with miona in the scene.
sasuga C! i can't escaped from your eyes huhh, yes you're right. hurm, well i might also add IkuRei after this..  :wub:

Either WakaNana and WakaRei feels doomed  :mon exhaust:  Gosh, can this just be WakaNanaRei instead?  :P
There’s HashiGawa!  :cow:

Hahah, i want it to be WakaNanaRei too. yeah, some HashiGawa in action!

Yeah, I can never forget Reika’s murderous face in that MV. I mean Reika mostly only used that kind of face when someone took her Wakachu away like in Nogibingo with Manatsu.

Actually the WakaNana isn’t breaking my heart, if anything it’s so precious. Because usually in other fics there’s WakaNana but the chance of them being together is unlikely even if one of them has a crush on the other. So thank your friend for making this WakaNana together, my WakaNana shipper heart is happy  :yep:

Anyway, happy new year!

 :panic: yeah Reika murderous face is so irresistible yet so funny  :w00t:
now you mentioned about that, yeah there is no WakaNana being so lovey dovey in a fic right. i should thank my friends too  :panic:

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (hope not too late).  :hip smile:

I’m proud of Naachan for kissing Waka. Good job!  XD
Gah, I dunno what to say because this kind of sickness almost never ends well in fic. My WakaNana heart </3 but at the same time it brings hope for the WakaRei, gosh…
So I see Naachan really does like Waka, but I’m not so sure for Waka’s feelings. I do hope Waka has grown to love her for real.
I can’t stand Naachan being in pain like this  :pleeease:
So Naachan knows Reika’s feelings, why is the situation like this for WakaNanaRei?  :bleed eyes:

Naachan: I actually want both of them

Reika’s murderous face is hot. Maybe because we usually see her being a ponkotsu so it’s really something else  :lol:
I don’t think I’ve found fic where WakaNana kissed let alone in a relationship
You really like IkuRei, huh?
You know, suddenly I’m imagining Hori showed up mysteriously on WakaNanaRei’s place like how she mysteriously appeared everywhere in Tsuki no Ookisa.
Nope, not late. Hopefully this will be a good year for Nogi despite everything

      Hashimoto Naoki was massaging his own temple when he heard a very familiar sexy voice at the door. He stole a glance at his fiancé but chose to ignore her. Fukagawa Mai smiled at her exhausted looking fiancé while making a way to him. His usual ignorant disappointed her a little. 

      Giving no attention his woman, Naoki sighed harshly. Three days working without any rest is taking a toll in his body which he knew he no longer can take it. But when Maimai starts to massage his stiff shoulder, he quickly arose from his chair, shocked with the sudden touch. Maimai laughed at his antics.

      “Why you look so shock? I’m just tried to help you.” Though his behavior should hurt her but she smile instead and pulled Naoki back to his seat.

      Naoki reluctantly received the offer; he had no energy left to argue with her anyway. He groaned a little when the touch suddenly became more intense and seductive if he had to admit it. He stiffened again when her hand move towards his wide hard chest, wrapped him from behind. The sound of her breath was so close to him that he almost lost himself in the middle.

      Hashimoto Naoki was a professional man who really appreciates healthy relationship. And both of them knew how to respect each other at the work place, which meant no romantic glares, no skin ship, no kissing at the work place. So far, they were doing well but Naoki knew how frustrated she is every time he pushed her away even at their own private space. Yet, Maimai knew him best when it comes to his weakness, that he always couldn’t stand her seductive breath together with a wrap at his neck.

      “Relax. I’m not going to eat you, Hashimoto-san.” Maimai hide her small devilish smile. Knowing she almost won this battle when the man was too tired to resist her. She had enough already with his old tactic to be professional at work but when will they have time to be together if he always the busy one? So she took a day off when she learnt that he had three days shift straight and came to him wearing red lipstick. That’s simple trick is enough to trap him into her embrace, he is the man who fall into simplicity. Perfect plan, she screamed inwardly.

      “I brought you lunch. Want to eat together?” At the very close distance, Maimai glance at the man and seeing he again try hard not to lose to her. Such a hard man.

      “Or you prefer to eat me instead?” She pouted with cheek touching each other. She smiled a little when she heard Naoki sighed, signaling he is now anxiously fighting her hot temptation. “Hurm but it is okay if you don’t.” Maimai retreated, act to be hurt. But before she able to move away, he grabbed her wrist and pushed her to the glass wall. If they were in ground floor, people will see what they were up to but lucky enough that Naoki’s office at highest level and they could talk about ‘business’ without afraid of people’s eyes.

      “Why you’re giving me such hard time Mai?” Naoki said in between their rough kiss. He no longer can resist the desire of wanting his girl. Mai is too hot with that red lipstick to be resisted. How long he had missed their intimacy due to his over busy life? His hand already moved to her back and closed their distance. “I want you for lunch and dinner.” He sexily declared. The kiss had grown heated when he later move to her neck, her body arched instinctively upon the aggressiveness but she smiled victoriously.

      “I knew you’re in middle of something. But I need to talk to you right now Naoki.” A flat voice disrupted their moment. Naoki quickly move away and Maimai awkward hide her blushing cheeks. Naoki gave a dissatisfaction look to Ryuu who casually walk to his desk like he witnessing nothing when he actually almost seeing everything he shouldn’t.

      “You should at least try to lock the door before doing business. I knocked for many times but you’re not answering which now I know why.” Ryuu reasoned and gave a mischievous smile to Maimai, knowing the girl will take it in cute way unlike his cold brother who usually will seriously scold him. He took a seat without being invited.

      Maimai bite her lower lips, feeling shy but resentful at the same time. Shy for Ryuu who almost saw their intimate scene and resentful for him disturb her winning game. For how long he has been there? And how can she forget to lock the door anyway? Mai couldn’t help to scold herself inwardly for being too clumsy with her plan. She is so absorbed with him that she can’t wait another moment to seduce her busy fiancé. Damn unlock door.

      “So, what you want to talk about.” Naoki didn’t give any chance for his younger brother to tease them and sat back to his chair. He took a glimpse towards Maimai who missing behind the curtain at the treatment corner, yet he could see her fixing her messy appearance anyway. She looked even beautiful from the back. ‘I will claim her body tonight’, he planned inside his head.

      “Nanase. Could you operate on her?”

      The sentence had brought the abrupt silence in the room. Naoki glared at his fiancé knowing Mai too heard Ryuu’s question. He anxiously massaged his neck when meeting with Ryuu’s desperate eyes.

      “You know, it was not that easy for us.” Before Naoki could explain, Mai had come and do what he supposed to do, knowing her man actually didn’t have enough gut to tell the truth to his brother. She took a seat besides Ryuu, received Naoki gratitude trough warm looks and returned with a smile.

      “Nothing is easy in this world right?” Obviously, Ryuu can’t accept any rejection. He observed two people exchanged eyes. “Please save her.” He begged, grabbing the hand of two people tightly.

      “We can, but it was too risky.” Naoki take turn to explain, somehow his brother expecting eyes weaken him. He knew, Nanase meant everything to Ryuu and he also wanted to save his patient but he also can’t bring himself to take the risk.

      “How many percent?” He learnt medical for one year and it took him less than second to understand this whole doctor supposed to be conversation.

      Again, Naoki and Maimai exchanged eyes. Both of them shared same opinion in this thing but unfortunately Ryuu don’t. “It is only 15.” Naoki weakly announced which Maimai then supported through small nods. The successful rate was that little they didn’t dared to risk it.

      “But you have 15% chance to save her!” Ryuu arose from his seat, the chair fall back, he is now furiously mad at how his brother judges a people’s life. “How can you give up that easily? You’re doctor, it is your job to save people lives, not just stand there doing nothing and watch her die!” He broke down, tears forming through his eyes. He is surely a weak guy when it comes to Nanase.

      “Ryuu, it was not easy for us too. You know how this thing go, moreover Nanase herself agreed to not undergo operation.” Maimai calmly persuade the younger man, she had seen Ryuu’s tough side and how he love Nanase so much, but when he being such grumpy and fragile kid, it hurt her till the point it broke her insides. She silently rubbed his back while calming him in his embrace.

      Naoki sighed at Ryuu rampage, letting Mai calming him instead. Honestly, he was shocked for his brother to go this far but he knew him less than Mai to even coax that little brother of his.

      After two minutes of crying on Maimai’s shoulder, Ryuu wiped his tears and looked at his brother with determination. It makes the older one nervous of what coming from his mouth soon.

      “Let’s operate on her. I will talk to Nanase about it, so please do whatever it takes to save her.” With that decision, Ryuu walked away from the room, leaving two people looked at each other in disbelief.

      SAKURAI REIKA sat on a table under a shady tree facing a lake near her faculty. Her class for today has finished literally two hours ago but she is still here, studying or struggling for her next assignment. Ryuu and Naachan actually offered her to tag along for dinner but she refused. Usually, they will had dinner together at home but since today was Ryuu’s off day from his part time job, and Reika wanted to give her two friends some privacy so here she is. Her routine had been same since two months ago, alone after class on Friday without particular reasons. 

      “You’re alone again Reika.” A manly voice interrupted her already unfocussed mind. Reika didn’t have to turn around to know who he is when the routine has been same whenever she was alone in the same place. Her guess then was confirmed when Ikuo excitedly take a seat facing Reika.

      Reika nodded to the statement without taking her eyes off from her books. From her peripheral views, Reika saw Ikuo supports his face with his two hands and looking at her.

      Honestly, things has gone weird awkward with this man and Reika didn’t knew how to handle this things. She never has man bluntly confessed his feeling to her like it was nothing. And that confessor was none other than Ikuo. She never think it was possible for him to like her since their only meeting was during the first time she arrived here two months ago and they barely has chance to talk to each other during that time. But for Ikuo it was enough to make him fall for her.

      It was the story from two weeks ago, but Reika still haven’t answer his confession even he always accompanied her every Friday without saying anything and just looking at her face. Truthfully, it was uncomfortable for her but she can’t just say no to him since they were in public. So she will silently sit while Ikuo sometimes giggles for unknown reasons.

      “Why you always alone on Friday?” After fifteen minutes of silent, Ikuo asked which obviously caught Reika off guard and looked up to him for two seconds before back to her books again. Having him talking to her was kind of shocking.

      “Nothing, I just feel like it.” Reika answered flatly, still looking down at her books which she had lost interest since he arrived. She bit her lower lips, mentally scolding herself for unable to control her reaction just now.

      “Want to have dinner with me tonight?” Again, Ikuo managed to make Reika flustered with his brutal question. But this time Reika barely controlled herself from making any shocking reaction.

      “How about giving me a chance to make you fall in love with me? Or at least make you consider me as your potential boyfriend?”

      *Badump* Again, Reika miserably failed to control her genuine shocked reaction when she just widely stare at him with mouth forming a circle. Ikuo laughed at her face, making the girl irritated.

      “I was joking. But seriously, you should consider the option.” Though he exclaimed calmly, but there was seriousness in his voice as he looked down to his shoes to hide his small disappointment.

      Watching Ikuo trying hard to hide his real feeling from poured out, Reika cannot help but to silently sigh. For two weeks, she poorly managed to run away from the topic, from giving him her absolute answer. But this man never stopped from pushing her even he is not saying anything than wanted to be friend after he confessed. Yet, Reika found it was his intrigue to win her heart by constantly attached to her for attention. Well, she might sound narcissistic but that was the real deal to her. Because to her, things related to heart and feelings for was too complicated to deal. Once she loves someone else, she can’t easily forget that person. Or, she didn’t try hard enough? That’s might be a problem.

      “What about, we have dinner tonight?” Reika bravely asked and she swore she almost laughed at Ikuo stunned face. Actually, he was cute.

      “Eh seriously?” His eyes desperately begging for some confirmation and Reika cheekily nodded to him.

      “I will not ask for second time you know.” Reike pulled a sad mocking face while her inner self trying hard to not laughing again when Ikuo blatantly stood up and excitedly punching one hand to the air.

      “Yoyoshaa. Let’s go, my treat.”

      And so, they having dinner at the same restaurant they first met. It was then Reika knew this was his favorite place since he ate a lot and the owner really kind to him for giving him extra food for every menu he ordered. As far as Reika remembered, Ikuo doesn’t talk to her during their first met, which might be due to his unconditional love for food. But this time, he surely talked a lot while shoving all food served for them inside his mouth. Truthfully, Reika didn’t mind it at all instead she enjoyed the time they spent together.

      ‘Maybe, the one who need chance is me’. Reika muttered to herself. She should admit that the problem is not in Ikuo’s sudden confession but her loyal desperate heart. Even she promised to herself to forget Ryuu, she actually still can’t do that or she unwillingly to forget him. No matter how much her heart ache from watching her two best friends lovingly care for each other every day, she still hoping for a small chance to herself even in her dreams. But maybe, that is the source of her problem, how can she wishing for a chance when she didn’t give her heart another chance to start anew rather than torturing it? So she has decided to give herself chance by being opened to Ikuo. It might take time but she can work for it to happen. 

      “I have fun time tonight.” Ikuo grinned widely to Reika when they leisurely walked along the road. After they had dinner just now, Ikuo insisted to walk Reika home no matter how much the girl declined the offer. Eventually, Reika went with the flow. Well, it is not like she going to lose something by having short walk with amusing Ikuo, right?

      “Me too.” Reika shyly admitted.

      THEY JUST finished today’s dinner half an hour ago and now was having relaxing time with salad as desert while watching random variety show. Naachan seems enjoying the shows but Ryuu was anxiously observed his girlfriend.

      Since this evening, after the talk with his older brother, he haven’t found the right time to talk to her and he thinks this is probably the time. But he still could brace his courage. Talking to Nanase was no big deal actually, but when it comes to her disease he wasn’t sure of himself to be able to control his feeling.

      He catch a glimpse of Nanase laughing from the joke some comedian make in the show, he smiled a bit. He always knew that it was Naachan hidden charm, though now she looked a little bit pale but she always being the cheerful girl.

      “Nanase.” He called.

      “Urm?” Without paid a glance towards Ryuu, Naachan answered. She is still laughing at the show.

      “Let’s have a talk.” Ryuu said softly while reached out for remote control, shoving any kind of disturbance. This time he managed to grab her attention and received no refusal upon switched off the television. After that he turned her body, made her facing him.

      The sudden calmness in his voice made Naachan a little nervous; Ryuu seriousness somehow tickle her curiosity. “What do you want to talk about?” She nervously smiled, trying to deny any negative possibility. She watched him grabbed her hand and rub it.

      “Can you please consider the operation?” He asked eyes glittered with some hopes.

      But for Naachan, the sentence struck her right away and almost losing ability to speak. She furrowed at his concern, cannot think why he suddenly discussing the matter. As far as her observation, she knew Ryuu likely to avoid talking about her condition. She knew how weak he is against his own feeling, his emotion surely poured out like right now. His eyes gleaming with hope and fear at the same time. 

      “I talked to your doctor this afternoon.” Knowing the confusing inside her head, he explained. “It was possible for you to undergo for an operation.” He fondly brushed their hand together and felt hers was suddenly cold. She must be in real shock. He smiled to ease her mixed emotion.

      “Can you?” He swam into her gloomy eyes.

      “I’ve told you, I can’t.” She retorted, pulled away her hand from his grasp. From her side view she can say he was little bit shock at her protest. But Ryuu quickly recovered and calmly hugged Naachan from behind.

      “I don’t want you to die.” He confessed, never let go his embrace no matter how hard Naachan tried to get away.

      “Stop it Ryuu.” Naachan looked down, hiding her tears which she quickly wiped using her back hand. “I’ve told you.. I don’t want to have surgery.” She jolted out from her spot when she felt his embrace slowly weaken. Ryuu’s face was impenetrable.   

      “I’m scared to die too. Can’t you understand that? I know the chance was low, and I don’t want to die that way.” Her tears at the edge of come out and almost blurring Ryuu from her vew.

      “You’re not going to die Nanase.” He hugged her again, sadness on her face broke him apart. “The possibility was low but I’m going to believe that. There were many cancer survivors out there.” He patted her back, knowing she right now was silently crying on his chest, though he was scared as hell too.

      “I promised you that I won’t let you die.” He whispered to himself.

      “I’m sorry Ryuu, I can’t.” Naachan disentangled their embrace, dive into his disappointed eyes with one hand on his chest. “I just can’t.” And she left him.

      In her room, Naachan cried like she never before. It’s hurt her so much to disappoint him but she also can’t bring herself to agree. She wanted to live too, but she knew it was impossible, the cancer had spread everywhere inside her body even before she was discovered with cancer. She was too wrecked inside for them to save her; it was what Maimai told her. So she miserably lives her life like this.

      And, she still remembered the day of her mom passed away. On the table where she exhaled her last breath, her body was fully covered with white blanket, she was pale without blood. The worst is, when she flipped the blanket that wrapped her body, she was full with stitches, she was beautiful but she was none other than a doll. And she didn’t want to be that doll.

      “For how long Naachan have been sick?” Reika asked, her back pack fall to her side due to shock. She was home ten minutes ago and overheard their argument, afraid to bother her two best friends, she decided to stay away. But what she heard was none other than hurtful reality. She can’t accept that how they actually hide the fact that Naachan was severely ill from her. So that’s the reason why Naachan sometimes went away for almost two weeks once in a month. And how stupid she is to not notice her pale face these days? She such helpless friend.

      “Reika.” Ryuu too cannot hide his surprised at Reika presence. He quickly sweep the trace of tears from his face, didn’t want Reika to see his weakness. “I’m sorry, did you hear it?” He was too weak to deny the hurtful reality.

      “Almost everything.” Yet, Reika can’t mad for him being so secretive about important thing. He might have her reason, and right now he looked far than exhausted. So she decided to listen to it as she sat beside him. “Tell me everything, will you?”

WTF!!! what are you doing ryuu! don't you know that maimai had long been waiting for it? :scolding: poor my hashigawa :lol:
so their chance to save her just 15% and it's too risky. same as ryuu, i want nanase do the operation. i know that the possibility to success is too little but if you never try you'll never know,right?
for now i don't wanna talk about who with ryuu in the end. i just want nanase save first. i like wakarei but i don't want to be selfish. who knows if nanase recovering, she'll end her relationship with ryuu and let him be happy with a girl that actually he loved (reika).
but if this really end with wakanana and ikurei i'm okay with that. at first i had been say that i'm ready for heartache :glasses: XD

      RYUU wasn’t someone who acts with his feeling and anger, he is someone who always calm inside and outside, and his words are beyond wise. But when he saw his friends Ikuo, kissing his childhood friend, outside his apartment, he lost his temper and before he ever realized it, he already plunged towards his friend.

      Ikuo, unnoticed his friend’s presence unable to do anything before fled across the long hallway as the fists landed on his cheek. Reika was even more surprised till the point she couldn’t speak a word, protecting her boyfriend or stopping her best friend from harming him. She just stuck to the wall upon the view of Ryuu punching Ikuo several time.

      “I told you, don’t even try her.” Ryuu dragged Ikuo against the floor and smashed him high on the wall. He is not someone who use his strength for violence but when his patience no longer there, he was like a monster. Much more when Ikuo’s smirk never left his lips.

      “I’m not like you. I’m not going to waste her like you did.” Though he is in the place where he should think before speaking however, weirdly he enjoyed watching his friend losing his temper though he was hurt. In the corner of his eyes, he watched Reika trembled so he gave her assurance look. He knew his game.

      “Leave her alone!” His jaw tightly clenched as he tried to not explode more than he already did, not when he followed Ikuo line of view and found Reika in fear. For unknown reason, he is even more disappointed.

      “She is my number 1 girl.” Ikuo mouthed the words with a sly smirk but as soon as he finished his speech, Ryu slammed him to the ground, producing a loud breaking sound. The fight isn’t end yet when Ikuo quickly stand by his feet, shifted on his weight just to avoid Ryuu fast heated hand. The man stumbled upon unexpected avoidance, so Ikuo took the chance to return all the hits he received with one strong punch. He was not a fighter, same goes with Ryuu, so both of them was sent backward with that one hit.

      Reika swore she heard the sound of broken bones when Ryuu rolled on the floor, which then awoken her from fear. She ran to Ikuo first, with intention to help her boyfriend but the man coldly brushed her hand aside, refused to be helped. Before she could say any words, he already turned on his heel and unsteadily walked away. Although Reika seems to say something but she didn’t, she saw the broken pride in Ikuo’s hazel orbs. She just frost.

      Ryuu and Reika already sat in the living room. Both were in deep silence as no one ever spoke a word. Ryuu occasionally glanced to Reika as his hand pressed some ice on the place Ikuo hit him 30 minutes ago, that surely gonna be bruised. But he is not really care about that at this moment as he contemplated about what he should say to her. She looked mad and he is the one she is mad at, but he too not in the right mood to apologize first.

      The same goes with Reika, she is angry but at the same time guilty; thinking that her unthoughtful action might hurt him though he has no right to be mad about it anyway. Yet, she cared and deep inside she hope that his act is the proof of Naachan’s words that day. That Ryuu actually love her too. Also the reason why he lost his wise and punch Ikuo when he saw them kissing earlier. But unfortunately, things were not like that and  he just make it harder for her when at this moment, she is slowly try to move on from him and try to accept Ikuo’s heart for her own sake.

      Though she admitted that, even during the kiss earlier, she still confused, explained how Ikuo’s lips barely touch her cheek at the very last moment before Ryuu came and ruined the moment that supposed to be romantic. She is still not ready, she is still thinking about Ryuu, and she still care for him no matter how hard she try to restrain her own body to not stretched towards Ryuu and treated the wound on his face.

      “You never good in fight.” Reika commented, tried to ease the awkward air around them. She checked the wound twice, though she was sure Ikup suffered more than him, not even once Ikuo crossed in her head and she concerned about the man after Ryuu. 

      “Stand still.” She warned, when she noticed Ryuu seemed uncomfortable around her at close proximity. Her dark brown eyes catch him in the eyes. “I still mad.” And so, with a sigh he let her do what she wants. It reminded her at how he always came to her every time he hurt himself at the playground, afraid that his parents would never let him out again if they knew about it. How irony it is because she is now offering the help but he reluctantly accept it.

      It’s 12 in the midnight and Naachan already fall asleep an hour ago, even before Ryuu arrived from his work. It is abnormal for her to sleep before Ryuu was home, but it is her way saying that she is still can’t agree to his decision regarding her health. Reika can’t help much when every time she wanted to discuss the matter, Naachan will casually pushed her away saying she’s okay.

      Naachan, with her condition right now was unexpectedly stubborn in her own way. Like how she childishly wait for Ryuu to go class first in the morning so she could have her breakfast and how she will lock herself in her room every time he was home just to not meeting Ryuu’s eyes.

      But being a considerate man like Ryuu, he knew how to handle his girlfriend well, though she refused to talk to him and he has to ask for Jun’s help to scout her to college every day. Somehow right now, Reika was grateful for that, because in that way Naachan would not see them wrongly in awkward position if she suddenly came out from the room because she haven’t done that for a week already.

      Reika cleaned herself after finished treat Ryuu’s wound and back to flop herself on the couch across Ryuu on the floor with an arm on the couch, he haven’t moved an inch since before. Though he haven’t say anything but she was aware at the need to talk to him. The tense that he bore on his face was way too obvious until all the muscle and veins popped from his skin, telling her he has a lot in his mind. And she has something to say too him too. But the question that jumped from his mouth has caught her off guard.

      “Since when you’ve been with him.” Asked Ryuu, avoiding the surprised glance Reika suddenly gave him.

      “A week.” She looked away, somehow feeling hurt to say it now.

      Yes, exactly a week ago, Ikuo properly asked her out, and she has no more reason to refuse him, she accepted it with a confused heart, thinking this is the chance for her to finally move on from Ryuu. She planned to tell him but don’t expect it to reach this point, they were caught red handed for trying to kiss except it is Ikuo whom took the first step kissing her and she awkwardly ended his attempt.

      “He is not like what you think.” The tense on her face seemed to fade away as he now correctly facing her with convincing eyes and voice a little bit calmer.

      “I’m still trying to know him.” Reika looked down to her fingers, hated it when he had that look in his eyes. Hated it how it always gave her different ideas about his feeling, like he care for her from his deepest heart, like the concern he had for her not because they are good friends but because she was more than that. Unfortunately it is not.

      “I told you, he is not like what you think!” The muscle on his face tighten again as his voice became incredibly cold like an ice sweep into Reika’s vein which swallow everything into a hole full of silence and the looks that he have, was none other than frustrated. “Can you please at least don’t worry me? I already have enough with everything.” The moment he said that, he regretted it right away and pulled his knees to the chest. He didn’t mean it.

      “I don’t want you to hurt.” He dropped his face in between his knee that the words aren’t audible to Reika’s ears anymore.

      “Then, what I’m supposed to do? He confessed to me, patiently wait for me. Should I reject him and wait for something unsure? Like waiting for someone to finally be true about his feeling?” She felt awfully tired right now, too tired that she didn’t care anymore if her words wounded him or if it revealed her feeling. Because she is to weary to conceal everything she tried to hid for a long time. Can’t he understand her feeling too? She saw Ryuu lifted his gaze in surprised but she just looked away in ignorant before his next words managed to grab her whole attention.

      “You gonna regret it later. Seriously.”

      For second, Reika thought she saw a subtle hint of sadness in his eyes if it is not for his face that told her at least this, ‘she screwed up and nothing could save her except him.’ And that’s how he strode into his room and cautiously locked the door; don’t want to awake Naachan at this hour.

      IT WAS FOUR in the morning and Ryuu is about to drift into his dreamland when thunderous knock was heard on his door. At the third knock, he already stormed toward it and found Reika almost breathless in her pajama while mouthed the words he afraid so much.

      “Naachan is...” That’s all it takes for him to dash out to the next door and Reika followed right behind.

      It was dark but his eyes quickly notice Naachan’s body laid on the floor which he quickly ran to her. He carefully dropped her head on his lap and when his fingers touching something sticky, he knew something isn’t right. Once Reika switched on the light which she forgot to do before due to panic, the crimson color liquid confirmed his guess, it is her blood.   

      Reika’s eyes full with terror as she read Naachan state. Indeed she is half awake when Naachan continuously cough through the night. Aware that Naachan is in uncomfortable condition, she pushed herself from her bed but Naachan kept assuring it was nothing, so she reluctantly believed it and helped her to get warm water. When she realized it was more than just cough, Naachan already on the floor and now it was proven worse than she imagined it to be with thick blood around her mouth.

      “Call the ambulance!”
      Reika already had the phone on her cheek when Ryuu shouted to her. Unlike him who already used to the condition, Reika is trying hard to keep herself calmer though her finger and lips trembled at the view.

      With Ryuu calmly but anxiously doing the CPR, trying to at least lower the risk of losing Naachan, Reika didn’t waste any seconds to grab anything including all Naachan personal belonging, records of her treatment and all her pills from the drawer and packed it inside a small luggage.

      And the rest night was basically messed up. Ambulance arrived practically ten minutes later and with Ryuu’s unstable mind, he jumped into the box with only short pants to cover her lower parts but his body was totally exposed.

      Unconsciously, Reika reached for Ryuu’s fingers and squished them together with hers, hoping it at least could lend a little strength to him. The moment their skin touching each other, Ryuu turned to her, eyes filled with slight amuse and a smile of appreciation dangled on his lips.

      Like him, she was scared as hell towards unimaginable things could happen. He already told her of how bad the disease could go at unexpected times but as she never saw it with her own eyes, she kept her mind optimistic, that no matter what happen she will stay composed and calmed to handle it. Now, she doubted her own ability, faith is what she lacking of.

      In her eyes, Naachan was no longer the girl whom always smiles despite all walls she faced in her life. There was no longer convincing eyes in her face as it now tightly shut down without much force. The hand that used to brush everyone’s concern with so much confident now weakly hang from the stretcher, how irony it is because it’s now doing the opposite thing it used and supposed to do. Every short breath she inhaled and exhaled now too barely heard even with help from the machine. In whole, Naachan is the definition of nightmare itself, both to her and Ryuu.

(A/N: How long I haven’t update? Hope this will make up for everything I supposed to do.

Question: What do you think about 17th single? Did it reach your expectation or not? For me, I love it as whole! The song, the dance, the sexiness they put in, and every shot my Waka and Reika got, it is awesome! And I like the part where they dance in a circle, it exposed how sexy Waka could be, am I right?
Tell me your opinion
guys :cow:)


@Tupi: Well, i hope you enjoy a short moment of IkuRei this time tho it is TOO SHORT, hhaha Thank for reading and commenting, it means world to me..


WTF!!! what are you doing ryuu! don't you know that maimai had long been waiting for it? :scolding: poor my hashigawa :lol:

Haha, i mentally scold him too when i read for second time, you know how absent minded waka can be sometimes...

who knows if nanase recovering, she'll end her relationship with ryuu and let him be happy with a girl that actually he loved (reika).

So, in this chapter Naachan fell sick badly (still unsure to save Naachan or not), also meant less moment for WakaNana (cause i know you really like them as much you love wakarei) but i devoted this whole chapter about WakaRei, hope it is okay with you all (the wakarei shipper).

but if this really end with wakanana and ikurei i'm okay with that at first i had been say that i'm ready for heartache :glasses: XD
ohhh, don't say that cause i might do that for real.. well, we'll see how it will be  8)2 8)2

//about reika PB. i'm looking forward for it. in my mind, finally we can see what usually waka view. nee waka now it's not your privacy anymore :peace: :lol: :peace:

hurm talk about that.... i love when Waka promote Reika's pb i love the cameramen who pushed the two so much, and i was like, 'Hell it reika, should kiss on her cheek instead of kiss mark.'  :angry: :angry: :angry:
but it could make it up too.

(A/N: Prepare yourself for the long swing reading. this is the longest btw. anyway, enjoy)


      In a room that full with equipment and machines that showing that Nanase’s heart is still beating, everyone surround the girl that finally opened her eyes after 3 days.

      Dr. Naoki flashed the light into his patient’s eyes, checking her condition before finally beamed a smile towards everyone that waiting all this while, especially his brother Ryuu.

      “Her condition has getting better.” He concluded after reading the chart given by his assistant. “And I think, it is time to transfer her to the normal ward.” He glanced towards his patient like everyone did.

      Despite she just woke up from deep long sleep, Naachan smiled weakly as she meeting in the eyes with all her friends. She saw Ryuu, Reika and Jun. As much as they are happy, she is happy too, but it was then before the remaining anesthesia dragged her into another dreamland. Yet, she still has the weak but beautiful smile hang on her lips.

      After Nanase was transferred into the normal ward and everyone including Dr. Fukagawa Mai entered the room, leaving only Dr. Hashimoto Naoki with Ryuu outside the room, each forehead puckered in thought.

      “You know.” Naoki started, hands massaging his own brows, contemplating on how to convey what is in his head. As Ryuu leant to the wall, he also does the same thing.

      “What?” His brows knitted together in a scowl. He didn’t like how Naoki acting right now because it can mean bad thing and he didn’t want that when he can feel relieved after Naachan finally woke up today.

      “You see, Nishino-san fainted three days ago because of..” He looked into his brother’s eyes before continue again “The tumor has spread to her brain.” He can see Ryuu is breaking down inside when his eyes don’t even blink.

      “What?” He stuttered.

      “From the test and how wide it has go, I assumed that she knew this all along but she keep it for herself.”

      Ryuu’s legs gave up and he fall with back to the wall, obviously shocked with the news. He can’t even utter a word, he felt numb. He looked into Naoki’s eyes, begging and Naoki knew what he meant.

      “I’m sorry that we can’t do anything to save her, any further work will cost her life.”

      And that’s all it takes for Ryuu to smash his hand and head to the wall, mad at himself for no reason. Questioning that why this happen, why it has to be her and how god so unfair to her. After all he never gave up, he always try, always praying the best for her  but still nothing could save her, not anymore cause he knew how fatal the tumor is once it reaching to the brain.

      Naoki stands there, watching his little brother in rampage, unable to hold his sadness anymore. As much as it is painful for Ryuu, it is hurt to him too seeing him like that yet he can’t do anything to stop or at least healing the pain inside. Unconsciously, he reached out for Ryuu and pulled the latter into a hug, patting his back, calming him down until he is quiet on his shoulder.

      They stand there in that position, ignoring the people passes by giving weird look or sometimes sympathized with them. Don’t even realized Maimai who coming out from the room and witnesses the whole thing, she sometimes wiped tears at the corner of her eyes with her finger. Somehow touched by the bond the two shared despite not sharing the same blood and sympathy to the guy who can’t accept the reality. She too felt the same thing, because Nanase to her is more than a patient. She didn’t want to disturb the brothers but she had to tap on Naoki’s shoulder remind him of his next appointment.

      IT IS ALREADY NIGHT and only Ryuu was left in the room accompany Naachan, hands intertwined within her finger, head arm pillowed and eyes hollowed into distance.


      Feeling a slight movement and his name being called, Ryuu sprung right away. He took some moment to adjust to the darkness which has shocked him for how long he stay here doing nothing.


      The called surprised him again, he switched on the table light and getting a clear view of the pale girl on the bed, smiling at him. He smiled back. “How do you feel?” He asked, lightly rubbing her cheek with his thumb. The girl nod weakly.

      “Good.” Ryuu sat at the corner of the bed and wrapped her waist, chin on her shoulder. “Don’t surprise me like that again Naachan.” He tightened the hug, smelling her scent though all he can smell is medicine. When he heard her chuckled, he opened his eyes and face her. “I’m serious Nanase.”

      “Have you talked to Hashimoto sensei?” She search for his orbs but he quickly shifted away before lock their gaze together after a while.

      “I did.” His lips lift upward, creating unconvincing smile.

      “What did he say?” Naachan held his jaw, hating it when he continuously avoiding her.

      Ryuu froze on his spot, have no other choice but to dive into her light brown eyes. “He said..” Eyes trailed down to her shoulder as he felt a weight inside that sunk his soul into deepest trench. “That’s you gonna be okay.” He lied, but Nanase are more than aware of that lie. “Definitely.” He smiled while hands caught hers and brought them to his heart.

      “Don’t worry too much.” He kissed her forehead before he felt Naachan backing away, in doubt. “Nanase?” He shocked.

      “I’m sorry for worrying you like that.” She tried to get down from the bed, wanted to go somewhere but her legs lost the strength and almost kissing the floor if Ryuu wasn’t quick enough to run around the bed and catch her. She was taken aback at her own imbalance, but when she glanced to Ryuu, asking why he just smiled. It confirmed her guess.

      “I want to see the sky.” She told him while finger pointing to the clear windows she always sat, looking to the outside world and stars.

      Ryuu nodded in acknowledgement before carry her in bridal style and put her on the wheelchair at the side of the bed, prepared just for her. When they already at the window, he stand beside her, enjoying the starless night. “It has been raining this few days..” He told her, reasoning for the hollow night view she haven’t seen for few days.

      “It is still beautiful.” Her throat felt hoarse till the voice almost fall into a silent whisper. Though she is staring into the night but her mind not in the same wavelength, soon her eyes got blurry with her own tears.

      The tears quietly fall to her cheeks, didn’t want him to worry for her one more time. She looked down, hiding the tears but once she found her useless leg, tears streamed down even more. Though Ryuu said she was okay, but she was more aware of her own condition. Her bodies don’t listen to her anymore, she can’t move them with her own energy anymore, and she was literally useless when she had to use this wheelchair.

      She bit down her lips, suppressed the tears from blurted out with the most painful way as she now can feel blood at the corner of the lips. She had no time, no matter how painful it is, she knew it, understand how this supposed to happen long time ago. And it is now the time for her.

      Ryuu, indeed didn’t realized Nanase condition as he now too deep in his mindless thinking. Agreed with Naachan’s words earlier, the sky still beautiful despite it was alone without any stars and moon.

      “I want to see the sea.” Naachan blurted.

      He looked down to her, would like to confirm if he heard them right.

      “I haven’t been to the beach for some time now. I miss the sand, the breeze, the waves sound and the sunburn.” She laughed at her own remarks, there are some stains of tears on her face but it appeared invisible in the night. She turned to her side and found Ryuu watching her, unblinking, there is a hint of concern in his eyes which she dusted it off with her own laugh.

      “I just want to see the sea.” Ryuu’s face still didn’t change and she hated that expression so she kissed him lightly on the cheek. Shocked by the sudden kiss, Ryuu looked at her owlishly but she just giggles before he joined her too.

      THE SUN is making its way up from the horizon when Ryuu carefully carry the fully wrapped with blanket Naachan to the beach and cautiously put her on the beach. It might be faster with wheelchair but on the sandy ground, it might be troublesome to push Naachan’s weight till the beach. Though the girl refused to walk by herself but after five small steps, her energy already depleted so Ryuu simply carried her.

      Watching the sun barely shining the new day, a smile crept up from Naachan’s lip. Just like what she imagined. And since it’s still early in the morning, there no people at the beach that could disturb their moment because being alone in this beautiful scene are the real happiness to her.

      “It is beautiful.” Ryuu prompt, taking a sit beside her and let her leant onto his side. He looked to her, searching for answer he needed from her and the view of his girlfriend enjoying the scenery was more than enough. He too joined her in mesmerizing the nature.

       Actually he is reluctant to bring her outside from the hospital, afraid it could harm her already worst condition but after counsel it with his brother and Maimai, it is indeed the best decision for Naachan since no medication or machine could help her at this state anymore. So, in the early of the morning, they already out of the building and what he can see is the real smile on her face.

      “Actually, I have two requests in my mind lately.” Naachan speaks up after minutes of silent. Ryuu looked down into her eyes with curiosity, but she doesn’t even ditch her vision from the sea.

      “What?” He curled his arm around her body and bring her closer, afraid she still feel cold even with the thick blanket which she returned the gesture by hugging him from the side, feeling the comfortable warmth with a smile dangled on her lips.

      “This is my first request.” She looked up, conveying the gratitude through the eyes before he planted a kiss on her forehead. She chuckles with eyes closed, didn’t expect that from him. “Thank you Ryuu.” The moment their eyes meet again, she can see the glittering from his eyes like it was saying it is nothing much.

      “And the second is?” With eyes still locked with each other, Ryuu asked, feeling the anxiety burning in his heart. He afraid that when she started saying things like this, because it is rare for healthy people to have weird request and Naachan is not in that category. He forced a smile anyway.

      “It is about you.”

      The unexpected words have Ryuu blurted couple of small laugh, he thought she was just joking but when she’s pouting, he just stopped. “I’m sorry, didn’t mean that.”

      Naachan just shakes her head, telling him, she too didn’t mind that too but for what she said, it is not a joke as she continued. “I’m thankful to you for always be at my side when life caught me in the middle.” In the blanket, she finds his finger and braided them with her own. Head cocked to side, onto his shoulder while the man just stay silent, letting the girl speak her heart out.

      Naachan closed her eyes, desperate for some serenity for what she is about to do. “Let’s break up Ryuu.” She bit her lower lips, hated for what she just said, and she knew Ryuu can’t comply with her too when he let out a short yelp in surprised.

      “What are you talking about Nanase?”

      “Please listen to me first.” Naachan push herself onto her own weight and face the man properly. He is what she expected with brows twitched together forming a frown of bewilderment. She cupped his face like she feared he would go too far from her reach even though she is the one who throw him away.

      “You are a good man Ryuu, always by my side whenever I need you, do what a man supposed to do to his sick girlfriend. You gave me everything I need, life, love, friendship. Even in your life, I am the first.” She smiled as she reminded of their friends, Jun, Ikuo, Misao, Kazuo and even her two best doctors, everyone are her best friend, always make her laugh at the best.

      “But that’s it..”

      “No, no.. This isn’t right.” He caught her hand, grasp it tightly with eyes interlock into her, lips trembled. “Don’t say it like you doesn’t need me anymore.” One hand cupped her cheek and caressed it.

      “I do need you Ryuu, I will always do. But I don’t want to be selfish anymore. I don’t want to die that way.” Tears begin to form at the edge of her eyes which Ryuu quickly wipe it away with his thumb.

      “But why?” He doesn’t know why, but he scared so much, scared of losing his girlfriend.

      “All this years, it is just me being selfish. When I first confessed to you, I know you supposed to meet Reika there, you wanted to confess to her. But I am too selfish.. And when I kissed you, I wanted her to see that.” With her end sentence, Ryuu was clearly taken aback with a gasp and eyes widen. “I’m sorry..”

      When Ryuu was too shock to even speak Naachan gasp a long breath before continue, “When I found that I’m sick, I just want you for myself, make you to love me back. But after Reika came, I knew I’m wrong, your kindness is just because you’re pity with me..” Eyes closed as she admitting her biggest mistake.

      As Naachan finished her sentence, Ryuu wanted to say something but she quickly sealed his lips with her fingers, heads shaking few times. Indeed, Ryuu is a kind man, she knew it all from his act, he never wanted her to see it as sympathy.

      There are only the sound of waves and breeze when the two of them froze eyes in the eyes that lock into each other. Nothing could interpret what was in Ryuu’s mind as he only looking into hers searching for truth. And Naachan, despite she just poured out all of what could be called as her crime, she is smiling.

      They still in deep silent as Naachan leant forward and planted a kiss on his lips. He didn’t reciprocate, and she hid a bitter smile as she pulled back, knew the meaning behind that.
      “But that is it Ryuu, let’s end this relationship. Live your life, confessed your love. I’m sure Reika still loves you.”

      Ryuu look into Naachan eyes, processing all the info he just heard, sea of confusion are so clear in his eyes, and so the amazement as he never thought she could notice all that but just keep it coll. “I didn’t meant that.” He looked down, ashamed of himself.

      “No, thank you. Because that is what keeps me alive.” They shared same smile of acknowledgment.

      “But for sure, I will stay by your side.”

      She nodded, he laughed and keep on staring to the sea which if Ryuu keep gazed at her, he would notice the tears couldn’t stop flowing from her eyes, wetting her very pale skin.
      WHEN THE TWO OF THEM strolled back at hospital hallway, both are giggles at some jokes, Reika and Jun already waiting outside her room, they came together right after the class as the two of them are classmate.

      Seeing Reika, Ryuu looked flustered and nervous a bit but he quickly hid it by passing by Reika without meeting eyes and greet Jun, again he missed how absent minded she is right now.

      Four of them went right into the room, spending the same routine of joking while eating, playing games, story telling how school goes while Naachan and Ryuu was absent, joking on how Kazuo want to be doctor someday and saves Naachan, until the told girl was tired and need to rest. By then, the day already presenting the starless night.

      “Jun.” Ryuu called, stopping his best friend from leaving. He gestured him to talk outside which they did after telling Reika to wait inside. “Can you look after her tonight?” Ryuu fidgeting in front the entrance.

      “Of course.” Jun can’t believe it but he gladly received the offer.

      “I’M SORRY FOR THAT NIGHT.” Ryuu turned around, facing Reika who slightly behind him.

      To enjoy the night walk, they just walk to his apartment, which Reika quickly agreed as it will be less awkward than being alone in a car since they never talked properly after that night.

      “Well, you probably right.” There is a hint of disappointment in her voice as she looked down. She flashed a smile when lifted her gaze meeting him, erasing all the doubt he had at the first glance. With three long steps, she already left him behind, giving him no space to start conversation.

      She is saying nothing, and so is he. One would say they’re quarrelling but none would see the nervousness he hid through trembled hand and Reika too would never saw that when she in front of him. And that is how the walk goes by, starless silent night. But it is before Reika abruptly halted her steps and Ryuu barely stops right behind her back. He looked around, realized that they already near his apartment, but something else caught his attention and it surely grab hers too, because when cautiously checking her condition, her view already attached at the same thing.

      There, not too far from the main entrance, stand two persons, so close to each other giving people the ideas of they are kissing, or probably did.

      “Can we do this?”

      Nakamoto Himeka, the girl with twin tail asked, fidgeting under his control. Of course they could hear her voice with that distance, and Ryuu had no problem recognized the girl he introduced to Ikuo last year for tutor. Yes, the male is no other but Ikuo, the jerk.

      “Of course we can.” Ikuo answered confidently.

      “But Reika-san..” Himeka couldn’t finish her sentenced as Ikuo again, sealed their lips for a deep and long French kiss.

      “Don’t mind her, she is my number one, but you are my Hime.”

      Like the sky could read Reika’s heart, drops of rains fall down upon them. Ikuo quickly grabbed Himeka’s hand and ran under nearby shading where they had to pass Ryuu and Reika. But before Ikuo saw them, Ryuu already pulled Reika into his embrace, her face on his wide chest and he looked away. Whatever in Reika’s mind, he knew a girl would never want any man saw her broken heart. So, he didn’t watch. They stay in that position until Reika calmed down and dragged him up, hand by hand. He stay mute.

      “I saw them few times before.” Reika said while removing her boots and throw it to the corner. “Don’t laugh at me because I knew, I look stupid. Serves me right!” She threw her already drenched coat on the other side and walk in like a drunk woman who lost in her love bet. Indeed, she did. Ryuu just stares at her unblinkingly.

      He followed her track, worried if she could trip anywhere like she always did, but she just blabbering again and again until he think nonsense all that. So he grabbed her on the wrist and pinned her to the wall.

      “Stop it Reika or else I’ll kiss you.” The close proximity of their lips silenced her at once. His eyes trailed down from her orbs to her nose bridge and down to her sexy lips. Rain droplet on her face make her looks so alluring that he kissed her roughly on her lip.

      The kiss is too powerful until she felt powerless against that and let him dominating her by returning the kiss. God, why is it feel too good? Why it is feel like he is all hers this is clearly a crime.

      “I love you Reika, I always love you.” He muffled within the heated kissed, not allowing any chance to break the kiss. He moved to her ear, unable to hold his lust and bit her. But it is the pain that awake Reika from the satisfaction.

      “Wait.” She caught his hand on her back, eyes desperate for same thinking. They shouldn’t do this. They shouldn’t betray their best friend. Yet, the only think she say is his smile, it is probably the calmest smile she ever seen.

       “It is over between me and Nanase.” He is still smiling, like he really relieved to say that. “I love you Reika, I love you, and seriously I could die waiting for this moment.” His eyes glittered with love. He never felt this happy before.

      “But still, we shouldn’t do this..”

      “Nope.” He keep her silent with a light kiss. “We should do this earlier.” And he continued what he left behind, kiss her here and there as the girl no longer reluctant to it and just let her body and feelings to follow the flow. It feels so real to resist, everything is so irresistible till the point their lips never detached from each other and by pulling her onto his weight, and Ryuu easily carried Reika into his room, where they unbelievably proceed to the next part.

(A/N: Yeah I know lots of drama in this chapter. But this is how I imagined it to be, never knew it will be dragged too long. Well , anyway drop your opinion guys, it will encourage me a lot. Till we meet again.)

Yes! It's TOO SHORT!!!! I want mooooore :depressed:

sometimes i felt poor to reika. when she tried to forget ryuu, he just held her. why ryuu didn't want reika dating with ikuo? whether Ryuu jealous or because ikuo is ryuu's friend and he know ikuo very well? Ryuu with cuts on his face must be very cool :shy2: I wanna see ryuu and ikuo fighting over reika (shit i'm into S)  :lol:

talking about 17th single. i love it so badly. it more than i thought! same as you. i love when they dance in a circle and i like marika's part. she was really outstanding! i hope she'll get more spotlight. but i felt annoyed with some fans who comparison nogi with their sister (keyaki) and they also said that nogi wanted to like their sister.

thanks for updating author-san :)

Post by: pretend_2besome1 on April 16, 2017, 05:36:22 PM life been so busy after my last comment. I need to catch up  :on study:

Anyway, onto the comment.
Even though Ryuu ruined the moment, MaiMai sure knows how to handle cold Naoki. All hail Holy Mother!  XD
I knew there’s bound to be some IkuRei happening in this fic, I just didn’t think he would have Himetan too. I do ship IkuHime, though.

I also had a feeling Naachan situation will get worse. But asdkfldgkldgkldk!!! I wanted WakaNana to work at least until Naachan is gone or get better (whichever is gonna happen in the future) and I wanted Ryuu to genuinely love Naachan like how he loves Reika  :mon whine:
I feel like WakaRei happening too fast? Like it doesn’t feel right while Naachan is still there. But that’s just me….

I swear, someone needs to write a WakaNana fic that doesn’t end up tragic or them being with someone else  :pleeease:

Mukuchi na Lion – Part 7


      A WEEK LATER, everyone had gathered in front of Ryuu’s house early in Monday morning, each has backpack as if they’re going to hiking tho the concept is about the same. Reika could only laugh at the turn out, well they’re supposed to camp inside Ryuu’s house to celebrate Naachan’s return from hospital.

      Excited with the event and not wanting to waste their time, Jun, Kazuo and Misao started to set up their big tent, set aside all the furnitures close to the wall, giving them enough space to make it as a real camp site. Few arguments occur between them whether to make a bonfire or not, but then they decide to used only big lamp in the center.

      Fifteen minutes later, Ikuo came in, since this event was planned for their close friends, Ikuo of course included though they had severals private argument before. Seeing Ikuo, Reika flashed her acknowledge smile which he replied with a nod. Noted that they supposed to have a talk from her text last night following her broke up declaration few days before.

      Like everyone’s suggestion, since they all busy with their own tasks, Ikuo and Reika will take in charge of foods and beverages. They somehow feel at ease to leave the experienceless Ikuo with Reika to handle food in the kitchen, little did they know Reika too has less or no knowledge regarding that matter unlike what everyone thought.

      Well, if this is not the time to learn, then when will she learn? So taking it as challenges, Reika cheered herself to prepared all the foods as well as talking to Ikuo since this will give them less pressure.

      “I’m sorry for the sudden break up” Reika didn’t know where to start but she thinks it more proper if she apologized first since she is the one who asked for this talk. Besides she still unsure how Ikuo would feel after her text few days ago since they haven’t met in a while. To her surprise, Ikuo was actually smiling at her with not prove of disappointment, make her at ease.

      It turns out that, Ikuo actually figured it out after their fist fight before, when Reika choose to defend Ryuu instead of him as her current boyfriend.

      “I guess that is love?” Ikuo simply reasoning failed to noticed Reika somehow blushing at his sentence, he then continued on how he always think of Ryuu as his absolute rival who always have girls after him without doing literally nothing but act of kindness. This time, Reika could only nod in agreement, same reason why she likes him.

      As they’re talking, Ikuo poured almost half bottle of vinegar into soaked spagetti just to give them more flavor like the restaurant he always visit. While Reika spending most time to cut onion in a big and random shape, though still unsure what to do with them, at least she knew onion is used in every cooks.

      Finished with the ingredients preparation, they started to cook the food. They have several argument with the menus but ended up agreeing on the spagetti meat balls and fried rice as their main course since it was as simple as 1 2 3, hamburger steak as a side dish, and puding for finishing.

      But, things are not as simple as they thought they would be, even pouring instant sauce onto hot fray pan can make them jumped all over the space, successed in gaining everyone attention to them. When Jun offering help, they just proudly wave him away, saying they’re working on secret mission which no one can involve with the process. And Jun walk backward hesitatantly, somehow feeling eerie at the outcome.

      When everyone thought that was the end of it, another explosion was heard as Reika trying to heat up the red beans using microwave, incidentally set up the ‘her’ desired temperature of 150oC for fifteen minutes instead of five. Again, everyone was beyond shocked at Reika awkward smile while reasoning she just experimenting the surprised effect.

      Worry at their stomach later moreover Nanase, three of them are offering help but Ikuo skillfully wash them away with his cold aura and low voice, doubting their trust to him after long friendship although it’s not the main matter right now. Reika didn’t sure if they actually believe or they just afraid of him that they walk away with fear on their face but she glad Ikuo came to her rescue.

      Afraid of what Ryuu might thinks of his beloved kitchen when he came back, Reika encourage themselves to work ‘more’ properly this time. They takes things slowly and carefully without wanting to obtain everyone’s attention again.

      An hour later, the supposed to be meatballs spagetti turns outs to be more likely to mince meat rather than meatballs but as they taste it, it was actually acceptable, aside from the fried rice a bit tastier than their expectation and the puding turn into fruir cocktail in the process. Nevertheless, they’re proudly high touch which make everyone worried and currious at the same time.

      Even though their outcome came out far than their expectation, Ikuo and Reika could only laugh their ass out at the end. “The result are not that important but the efforts are all mattered” Said proud Ikou, receiving Reika’s attentive nod. Not only they capable of making their own disasterous dishes but along the way they already achieved their own point of friendship, is what they actually think of deep in their heart. 

      As their busy working on their indoor camping, evening came without them noticed and now they all are expecting Ryuu’s to come home with Nanase. He promised to bring Nanase back no matter what happen and have her experience a real camping like her wish.

      So, when the doorbell ringing, everyone quickly dashed to the front door, hoping to scream ‘Okaeri’ to Nanase but it turns out to be Miona and Himeka whom later cried at the sudden surprised and everyone are laughing at awkward situation there.

      Well, actually they forgot Miona was also invited by Ryuu since she is one of closest person to Nanase, and to avoid from being bored during the event, Miona was allowed to invite only one friend and Himeka was chosen among her long listed classmate. What a pure coincident there, Reika thought as she remember the girl.

      Not knowing that, Ikuo was flustered at the new visitor. He looked at Reika and Himeka nonchalantly, afraid of what might happen between her previous and current girlfriends later. But Reika only give him her knowing nod while whispering ‘its okay’ to calm Ikuo’s storm thought inside.

      After long waiting and everyone already tired of it, Ryuu and Nanase came home. But he forgot to ring the bell as planned, everyone jumped at the sudden arrival, unprepared for the surprise. Ryuu could only scratch his back head as apology.

      Still, Nanase laugh at the unexpected celebration, touched with everyone kind thought, happy tears forming from her eyes when she saw all the set up and everyone big smiles. Glad that she came back.

      As everyone celebrating for Nanase, Ryuu anxiously searching for Reika’s gaze. The latter somehow never failed to avoid his longing eyes. He sighed his disapointment away, feeling guilty to feel that away at this special moment. It is not the time for him to crave for other attention when he supposed give his all or Nanase. He smiled as Nanase’s weak but sincere laugh that always light everyone mood.

      And so, that night they spend their precious time with Nanase. Although everyone try to put happy face, giving their best to make Nanase happy and enjoy the moment, but deep there they are silently grieving and preparing. This might be the last time they heard Nanase’s healing laugh, her bright wide smile and might be the last time they saw her too.

      Unlike before, tonight they treat Nanase like she was healthy, it was one her request too. For them to treat her like she is one of them, not giving her special treatment anymore, letting her do everything by herself, eating the same food like everyone else and play games like they used to before she was sick.

      Indeed, Nanase was having fun, laugh with all her might, forget the fact that she was sick for the moment. Never thought of seeing this when Ryuu asked her what she wanted the most few days ago. She knew Ryuuu wouldn’t be so serious with this so she asked for impossible. She want to go camping. Never know they would turn her request into reality when he insisted of getting her out of hospital today, even willing to go against his own brother. And she never regret agree to his request. Afterall, today might be her last day.   

      While everyone was enjoying the time, they forgot about what happen in the kitchen this afternoon and inhale the food like they were starved for months to the point the bowl is clean without any trace for food. Reika gladly skipped to the kitchen to top up the food without realizing Ryuu is following.

      Only when she turn away she realized Ryuu is too close to her, body almost stick to each other. Know what he wanted from her, she try to run away but each time, Ryuu managed to stand her way. Now they both stand in awkward position.

      “When will you stop avoiding me Reika?” Ryuu asked right away, knowing time is not on their side later everyone will notice they’re missing, and they both know what he was talking about. It has been week since that day yet they never talked or meeting eyes ever again, it made him so fucking frustrated at her for doing this.

      “I’m not” Reika stepped back, giving more space between them. Her eyes shakes uncomfortably, hinting she was lying.

      “Are you mad at me?” His eyes begging for answer while each hand grabbing kitchen counter, he didn’t want Reika to slip away again like she always does.

      “I’m not Ryuu.” Reika barely holding herself from screaming, eyes shifting to the living room, check if anyone would see them doing this and her eyes meeting with Nanase’s but the latter just smile at her.

      “Look Reika, I’m really sorry for that night I didn’t have any inten..”

      “Why you’re apologizing when nothing happened?” For seconds, their eyes met before Reika looked away, feeling hurt remembering the topic. It’s true, when both of them losing control, falling too deep in their own demand for lust, trying to satisfy their own needs for selfish love, yet nothing is happen. As much as she wanted it to happen, reality snapped in her like a lightning. They’re not supposed to do that, they’re confused, Ryuu was confused and she too not in right mind. And so, she was avoiding him for the whole week, afraid if the same thing might happen when they’re close.

      Flustered, Ryuu felt a heavy weight drowning his guts as he try to search for the right words. She is right. But still, everything started from him and he feel guilty about it and if not why she is running away?

      “I will move out this weekend,” Her sentence hit him hard to the point he didn’t know how to react. “We need more space Ryuu, we both are confused. Aren’t you?”

      Ryuu could feel his body weaken, unable to see this coming and Reika took the opportunity to walk pass him. This is her final decision, and she telling it only to Ryuu since this is for both of them.


      “YOU KNOW REIKA, we all the same. Unable to get over our first love. Me, Ryuu and you and none of us are happy” Naachan suddenly speaks. Its already pass midnight and everyone were fast asleep. It’s just her who couldn’t sleep, she wanted to savour every moment of this night, everything is so beautiful. Listen to Reika anxious breath, she knew Reika too couldn’t sleep.

      While Reika, although her body demand for some rest, her mind couldn’t do so, unconciously she was thinking about what might happen to Ryuu after she left. Could he do this alone? Who will help him if anything happen? And who will offer him shoulder to cry on? As she was thinking all those things, she was breathing hard and so makes Naachan sure Reika still not sleeping.

      “However, it makes me realizes that letting go is always a way to be happy. To be truth, I never feel this happy before.” The day where they were at the beach flashed in her mind, that time she thought her decision was the worst for herself.
      “For always standing besides Ryuu when I couldn’t, I wanted to thanked you.” This time, she smile so bright, feeling so grateful. Reika stay silent. But second after that, the smile disappear right away.

      “Can you please be with him? Even after I’m gone?” Her voice shakes as she tried to sound normal. She saw what happen in the kitchen before, she heard nothing but she could read something. Reika is leaving and she didn’t like that.

      “He will be okay.” Reika finally said, sound so confident. Little did she know, it was actually for herself.

      “You’re right” is what Nanase uttered as she wipes away her tears. Why she thinking too much about him? He is strong, he has faced so much when he taking care of her, doing everything almost by himself, something others couldn’t do. What had made her thinking that he is so weak that she was too scared and worried to leave him alone? “He will be alright”

      And so, their hand finding and grasp on each other while eyes staring to the starry night behind those glass window. There are no values could compare to this relationship, exactly why she thought friendship is more important than love. 

      As time passes by, their eyes too finally able to shut off. Naachan still smiling as she drifted into dreamy land, feeling comfortable warmth from Reika’s hand on her right and calmness from Ryuu’s breathing on her left. Like everything is inviting her into absolute deep sleep. She could have good dreams with all her friends by her sides much more when Ryuu and Reika are there too.


      Reika turn to Naachan’s side when she feel a sudden cold through her hand. And it was then when she realized Naachan was smiling while her eyes slowly shut down.

      The next morning, Reika still half asleep when everyone else fall into chaos saying “Nanase is not waking up,” Kazuo anxiously shakes the girl’s body few time but received no response. ‘Nanase is gone’ Misao wiped his face, accepting the fact. ‘She is smiling in her sleeps’ Jun said, gently brushing Nanase’s cold face with his fingers.

      Miona is crying even harder upon seeing the last dandelion she gave to Nanase on the table next to the window already wilt. Himeka on her side try to calm down Miona whilst eyeing Ikuo’s silent reaction in the corner.   

      That was then Reika remember saying ‘itteraishai’ to Naachan in her sleep, thinking she maybe dreaming. In those chaos, her eyes finds Ryuu who stand in stupor receiving the news so calm and emotionless. As if he was readied for it with eyes still on Nanase’s cold body.

      So, in that beautiful Tuesday morning, she’s gone. The girl they used to know already passed away, still smiling beautifully.


      MONTHS HAS PASSED since Nanase left them, its seems like everyone are able to cope with the lost. It’s the least Reika knew about them since she left a week after Naachan passed away, like her promise. She glad that no one asking her why but understand her circumstance. She transferred to a college near her hometown, now in her semester break, planning of having a great holiday but..

      But now, here she is stands in front of the very familiar door. Keys in her hands, still unsure whether she should use it or just ring the bell. Either way, she don’t have any courage to face the person behind that solid door.

      Though this is not what she promised to herself months ago, to left and never came back for anyone or more precise Ryuu. But upon receiving tons of mail from Ikuo and everyone else had made her worry so much.

      “He never came to class anymore, he had quit” Jun is the first person she met when she came back to Tokyo. The beautiful man, Jun now has grown neat mustache, looking manlier. “He even stop drawing..” Jun’s confession torn her heart into pieces. From her eyes, Jun too seems hard to accept the reality. None of them would thought this will happen, its beyond their control. And nothing he could do to help his friend, that’s why he called Reika, asking for help.

      ‘No one had ever saw him after the funeral but Miona said, she always saw him buy ramen and beer everyday’ Reika still remember Ikuo’s text before. 

      Ikuo might be the only person who sees Ryuu as a rival but he genuinely cared for his friend thus never stop reporting to Reika about Ryuu even if she always rejecting the idea. Afterall, she want to clear her mind off him. It seems like it will never happen.

      “He still didn’t cry for Nanase” was the last thing she heard from Jun before parting which the only things had bring her here, juggling with the keys she still kept and guilt filled her heart. Only if she didn’t left.

      Doubt with her choice, Reika somehow manage to muster up all her courage to knock the door, at least giving Ryuu more time to prepare. Three times, four times, no response. She dailed Ryuu’s number confirming whether he is in there or not. A familiar ring was heard and her brows forming a tight knot.

      “Ryuu, I’m coming in” Her voice trailed off as she jabbed the key into the keyhole. A click was heard, make her sighed away her worries, used to think Ryuu might change his door knob, not wanting anyone to invade his private space anymore.

      Taking a first step in after a while, Reika eyeing the house for moment. It was too quiet and everything was in huge mess. Dirty clothes piled up in about three baskets near washing machine and some more in every corner, ramen cups scatter around in the living room and kitchen showing how frequent he ate that thing during this few months. Empty beer cans can be seen in every corner, explained why the house would smell like alcohol though she knew, Ryuu never drink in his whole life.

      “Ryuu,” she called, pulled the curtain to give her enough lights to search for Ryuu. But the young man is nowhere to be seen. She turn her heels towards his room, feeling nervous so sudden upon seeing the open door and coldness crept out from the room through small space in between. She called again,careful not to surprise him if he was in there.

      Again, she received no answer which worry her. Feeling something is off with odd coldness, she switched on the light and found no one in there. Its not even Ryuu but there also no sign of him. Unlike the living room and kitchen, his room was totally clean. Not even a wrinkle can be spotted on his bed, his clothes also hung in their respective place, the bathroom also look dry and cold like no one ever be here for a long time. The dust on the mirror prove her theory, he don’t sleep in his room anymore.

      Like a lighting hit her, Reika dashed to the next room. There, the first thing she heard is a small cry, like a child longing for his lost mother, except that child is no other than Wakatsuki Ryuu and the one he longed for is long gone Nanase.

      “Ryuu..” guided by the sobbing sound, Reika walked to him and found him sobbing on Nanase’s bed, hugging her picture and sweater dearly.

      Without saying anything, she brought him into her embrace, brushed his back lovingly. As her hand roam around his body, she could feel how thin he is right now with every bones protruding through its frame.

      The sight had devastated Reika so much, didn’t expect him to mourn for their lost best friend this much. She thought he could over this like everyone else. The Ryuu right now is not far than a man who lost his light. That’s might be true, Ryuu is the one who always be with Nanase in every ups and downs. Dedicated his whole soul taking care of Nanase since the first day she sick until she passed away. Ryuu is always there. So after Nanase gone, he lost his life too.

      Without Reika realized, she trailed every corner of his face with kisses, ignoring the sharpness of his growing beard, wiping his wet eyes with her thumbs. Appreciate the fact that he is still alive after this storm.

      “I’m sorry I didn’t come earlier”  Reika said as she met his dry lips, restraining herself from crying at his saddening state. Why, why.. Reika never stopped blaming herself for this.

      “Reika?” Like he just woke up from deep sleep and found someone else in his private space jumped over, surprising Reika who yelped in the process. Feeling he is trying to run away, Reika quickly ran to him, hug him tightly as if she could lost him any seconds. 

      “I’m sorry for leaving you alone, I will never leave you ever again.. never” moment after Reika declared her promise, a pair of hands wrap her waist, shivered in fear and relieved at the same time. When she felt her shoulder wet with tears, she know Ryuu too is struggling to live.


(A/N: Ahhhh I didn’t know how to end this… this story has gone too far than I expected them to be, so I lost myself in the middle too. But, this is how I imagine them to end when I first started MNL.

I knew there’s bound to be some IkuRei happening in this fic, I just didn’t think he would have Himetan too. I do ship IkuHime, though.

I also had a feeling Naachan situation will get worse. But asdkfldgkldgkldk!!! I wanted WakaNana to work at least until Naachan is gone or get better (whichever is gonna happen in the future) and I wanted Ryuu to genuinely love Naachan like how he loves Reika  :mon whine:
I feel like WakaRei happening too fast? Like it doesn’t feel right while Naachan is still there. But that’s just me….

I swear, someone needs to write a WakaNana fic that doesn’t end up tragic or them being with someone else  :pleeease:

IkuHime! i love them too, too bad himetan will soon graduate and disappear from entertainment life as well, like someone we used to know..  :cry: :cry: :cry:

actually, Ryuu love Naachan in a special way.. its just Ryuu is too confused with his love line.. its either he has less experience in romance or because he is too majime.. (like the waka we know..)  :lol:

nahh, its not just you.. they both feel that way too.. glad that you understand the situation well too..

lols, i'm sorry that this had to ended tragically and they didn't ended up together, but i guess all their small moment before light your mood (hopefully)  :wub: :wub:
