Chapter 5

X-x-Flashback of chapter 4-x-X

Amu’s and Ikuto’s POV

Am I falling in love?

X-x-Somewhere Else-x-X

Utau’s POV

“Did you get her?”

“No, I am sorry, Utau-sama. I did make her bruise on her knee worse though. Do you remember? The banana peel you put on the stairs when she going up the stairs? And stopping the elevator was smart thinking.”

“Well, it helps to have a famous family since our café is known to everyone.”

“But, Utau-sama, I think Tsukiyomi Ikuto-san saw me trip Hinamori Amu.”

“Hmm…that’s not good…but he may not know that I told you to do it!”

“Yes, you are correct, master!”

“Thank you for your service. You can go now.”

“Yes.” And he was off. ‘Just you wait, Amu. You are never going to see Ikuto again!!’

One Year

Amu's POV

“Time for breakfast, Amu-chan desu!”

“Sure thing, Su.” Lately, I’m the one who wakes up first and Su and Ran usually stay at our dorms most of the time so the people at this college should make a room big enough for 4 people since we are practically living together in one dorm. “What are we going to do today, Amu-chan?”

“I don’t know, Ran. Do you guys have any ideas?”

“Well, since it’s Saturday, we should go somewhere fun desu!”

“Yes, exactly. But where?”

“Hmm…” I walked over to my desk. On the surface of the desk laid my bracelet. I walked over to the calendar. “I have an idea.”

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

“Are you sure, Amu-chan?”

“Yes, I’m sure.”

“Alright, then. Let’s go to Osaka! But it takes a little more than 4 hours to get there!”

“We’ll be alright. It’s Saturday and we don’t have work today and tomorrow. It’s 7:00 so we should make it there by almost noon since we will head out at 8 or so.” I got dressed. I put on the navy dress that Keiichiro gave me one year ago. I also put on my cross necklace and my bracelet that Keiichiro gave me. “Amu-chan! You look so pretty!”

“Thanks. But I don’t know if I should wear this because it’s not really right to wear it during daytime.”

“That’s ok, Amu-chan! That dress is special to you and nobody will be seeing it because we are using your car to get to Keiichiro’s grave.” That’s right; we are going to Keiichiro’s grave in Osaka since it has been one year since he died. His death anniversary.

“Thanks, Miki. Hey wait, how come I’m driving?!”

“Because you thought of the idea.”

“You suck, Miki.”

“Sometimes.”

X-x-Osaka-x-X

“Ah! I’m so tired!”

“I should be the one saying that, Ran! I was the one driving. You guys owe me money for the gas because I used a lot of gas to get here.”

“Hai!” I sighed. They are too cheerful. I parked in the parking lot.

“Let’s go.” I grabbed the flowers we bought and headed into the cemetery.

“Are you ok, Amu-chan desu?”

“Yes, I’m fine. Thanks.” We searched for his grave and finally found it.


Fukushima Keiichiro

July 17, 1984 – August 23, 2007

Loving brother, friend, and fiancé


I fell down to the ground. “Amu-chan!” I ignored them and reached my fingers over the gravestone. Over the words fiancé. Tears fell down quickly. “Amu-chan! Are you alright?” Fiancé. Those words will be forever etched across my mind. ‘Why? Why did he have to die?! WHY!! Come back to me!’ I started to cry harder. Still crying, I placed the flowers in front of the gravestone. “Keiichiro…I miss you.”

“Amu-chan…” Their voices quieted down. “I’m sure that Keiichiro-san is watching over you from the sky desu.” I sobbed harder.

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

“Are you sure that you want to leave now, Amu-chan?”

“Yea, I’m sure.” My eyes were all puffy from crying.

“Amu-chan? Is that you?” I whipped my head around me. My eyes widened.

“Sachio?!”

“Yep, it’s me.” He grinned. “What are you doing here? I thought you moved to Tokyo.”

“I came to visit.” I said simply.

“Oh.” I saw it in his eyes. He knows why I came here.

“Amu-chan, who is he?”

“Oh, sorry guys. This is Sachio, Keiichiro’s friend.” My voice went a little quiet when I said Keiichiro’s name. Ran, Miki, and Su have never met Sachio before because he is always outside and lives far away from my house.

“Hi, Sachio-kun! I’m Ran!”

“Hey, Sachio-kun. I’m Miki.”

“Sachio-san! It’s nice to meet you! I’m Su desu.”

“Hey, everybody.”

“Sachio, what are you doing out here?” I asked.

“I was about to go to the cemetery.”

“Oh, I see.”

“Amu-chan! We have to go now!”

“Right. We have to go Sachio.”

“You’re going already?!”

“Yea, we can’t stay long, sorry. Bye!”

“Bye, Sachio-kun!”

“See you.”

“See you later desu.”

“Bye, girls. Hope you come back someday.” Was it just me or did he blush a little when Su talked to him?

“Maybe. Bye!” We got into the car and drove away.

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

Ikuto’s POV (Amu is still driving)

“Ikuto nya! I’m so bored!”

“Go outside then. Why don’t you hang out with Miki?”

“I can’t nya.”

“Why not?” That’s weird. Yoru and Miki are always together.

“Miki, Ran, Su, and Amu went to Osaka nya.”

“Osaka? That far away?”

“Yea. She said that they were going to go visit there since it’s been a year since they moved here.”

“A year, huh? Do you know when they are coming back?”

“Around six or seven nya.”

“Hmm…”

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

Amu’s POV

“We finally made it back here!” I exclaimed.

“Amu-chan, I have to go.”

“Why, Miki?”

“I promised Yoru that I would go on a date with him after coming back from Osaka.” She blushed.

“Have fun then. Hey wait! That means I ruined part of your date because you came with me to Osaka instead of going to your date.”

“It’s alright, Amu-chan. I told him that I had to go and he was alright with it. Don’t worry about it. I wanted to go with you.” She smiled. “Bye!” She ran off.

“Amu-chan, I have to go too.”

“You too, Ran?! I’m ruining your personal lives right?”

“No, you’re not. I told Daichi that I had to leave with you to Osaka and he was ok with it. It’s just like Miki said; I wanted to go with you.” Ran grinned.

“Thanks, Ran.” I hugged her. “When did you tell him that you couldn’t have your date because you had to go to Osaka?”

“While you were changing, Miki called Yoru and I called Daichi.”

“Oh, I see. Now go! Have fun on your date.” I smiled.

“Ok! Bye, Amu-chan, Su.” She ran off.

“Amu-chan desu.”

“You too, Su?!”

“No, not that. I’m going to take a nap in my dorm desu.”

“Oh. Ok. Have a nice nap.”

“Ok. You have a good rest too, Amu-chan.” She went into the building. I looked up at the sky. It was breathtaking. So many colors at once! Red, orange, purple, and dark blue. It should be around seven. I headed into the building too. ‘Hmm…what should I do?’ I kept on thinking until I reached my dorm. ‘I know!’ Instead of going to my room, I went to the music room. I looked inside. I sighed in relief. Good thing nobody was here. I walked over to the piano. The people here wouldn’t mind, right? I began to play.

Ikuto’s POV

“Ikuto nya! I’m going now!”

“Where are you going?”

“On a date with Miki!” I smirked. Miki and Yoru started going out a few weeks ago and the same goes for Daichi and Ran.

“Have fun.”

“Bye, Ikuto nya!” he yelled as he walked out the door. If Miki is here, then so is Amu. I haven’t confessed to Amu yet and Yoru was saying that was sad. I began walking to her dorm. I knocked on it. I waited there for a minute. No reply. I knocked again. Again, no reply. I decided to see her tomorrow and play the violin in the music room instead. What I didn’t expect was hearing someone playing the piano. The door was slightly ajar so I peeked in. My eyes widened. Amu! She was playing and singing.

I Miss You by Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana)

Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la

You used to call me your angel
Said I was sent straight down from heaven
You'd hold me close in your ah-arms
I love the way you felt so strong

I never wanted you to leave
I wanted you to stay here holding me

I miss you
I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear
Every once in a while

And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know

I miss you
Sha la la la la
I miss you


Her piano playing was beautiful! And her voice is so gentle…wait, is she crying?

You used to call me your dreamer
And now I'm living out my dream
Oh, how I wish you could see
Everything that's happening for me

I'm thinking back on the past
It's true that time is flying by too fast

I miss you
I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear
Every once in a while

And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know

I miss you
Sha la la la la
I miss you


How she sings it is so sad…I want to go hug her right now to comfort her. She is definitely crying. Her tears are falling on the piano keys.

I know you're in a better place, yeah
But I wish that I could see your face, oh
I know you're where you need to be
Even though it's not here with me

I miss you
I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear
Every once in a while

And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know

I miss you
Sha la la la la

I miss you
I miss your smile
And I still shed a tear
Every once in a while

And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know

I miss you
Sha la la la la
I miss you
(I miss you)


She stopped playing. At first, I thought she noticed me but the song was finished. I was so absorbed into her song. She turned around towards the door which was where I was standing. Her eyes widened. “Ikuto?!”

Amu’s POV

‘Keiichiro, this song is for you.’

And even though it's different now
You're still here somehow
My heart won't let you go
And I need you to know

I miss you
Sha la la la la
I miss you
(I miss you)


I noticed that I was crying. I turned to my right and I found Ikuto. My eyes widened. “Ikuto?!”

“Hey.”

“What are you doing here?”

“I was about to play the violin.”

“Oh. Did you hear me play?” I knew my singing wasn’t so great.

“Yes. I thought your playing and especially your singing was beautiful.” I looked up. “Really?” I asked.

“Yes.” He smiled. I blushed. He walked over to me. He raised his hand to my cheek to wipe away my tears. I looked down. He hugged me. I started crying again but silently. “Amu, if you cry, it hurts me.” My eyes widened. “Sorry.” Was all I could mutter. I was a little disappointed when he released his hug. He got up and walked over to the shelves. “What are you doing?” I asked. He didn’t answer. He got a violin and opened the case. He positioned himself with the violin. “I made a deal, didn’t I? If you played the piano for me, I’ll play the violin.” He began playing. I sucked in a breath. So beautiful…also sorrowful…it makes me want to cry and what do you know? I do start crying. After he was done, he put the violin away and placed it back on the shelf and walked over to me. He rubbed the tears from my cheek. “Thank you, Ikuto. That was beautiful.”

“I’m glad you liked it.”

“I loved it.”

“Come with me.” He took my hand and walked us out of the building to his car.

“Where are we going?” And I must admit he has a nice car. A silver Mercedes-Benz. “You have a nice car by the way.” He smirked. “So where are we going?”

“You’ll see.” He started the car. He drove somewhere that was unfamiliar to me. I noticed that it was getting dark. We’ve been driving for 20 minutes already. “Are we there yet?” I asked.

“Almost.” 5 minutes later, he stopped the car. I looked around my surroundings. There were trees everywhere. “This isn’t the place.” Ikuto said noticing me look around. “Oh.” I muttered.

“Close your eyes.”

“Why?”

“It’s a surprise.”

“Fine.” I closed my eyes. He held my hand and led me to the place he was going to show me. We walked for about 3-5 minutes. “We’re here.” I opened my eyes. My eyes widened.

“This lake is so beautiful! How do you find these places?” When I opened my eyes, I saw a lake sparkling and the reflection of the moon. The stars were out too. I bet my face was a little kid’s face, like Ami’s face.

“I just pass by.”

“You’re incredible, Ikuto!” I smiled my warm smile that I haven’t smiled that smile in a long time. I swear that he blushed which was a rare sight.

Ikuto’s POV

“You’re incredible, Ikuto!” she said smiling at me. I blushed. This smile seems different. I never see her smile that smile to anyone before. ‘Why is she so damn cute?!’ I gulped. My face turned redder.

“Ikuto? Are you alright?” She placed her hand on my forehead. I blushed even harder. I grabbed her hand that was on my forehead. I took that hand and placed it on my chest. I saw her blush. I would usually smirk but in this situation, I couldn’t. I think I would blush instead. I then pulled her hand away from my chest and let go completely of her hand and hugged her tightly.

“Amu,”

“W-W-What i-i-is i-it, I-I-I-Ikuto?” she said stuttering. I them remembered my promise to myself when I first met her. I promised myself that I would make Amu fall to her knees when she sees me like those fan girls of mine but I realized that I didn’t want that. I want Amu to love me as I love her.

“Amu, I…” I saw her eyes widen. ‘Just do it dammit! Why is it so hard?!’ I took a deep breath.

“Amu, I love you.”

X-x-Flashback of Chapter 5-x-X

Ikuto’s POV

“You’re incredible, Ikuto!” she said smiling at me. I blushed. This smile seems different. I never see her smile that smile to anyone before. ‘Why is she so damn cute?!’ I gulped. My face turned redder.

“Ikuto? Are you alright?” She placed her hand on my forehead. I blushed even harder. I grabbed her hand that was on my forehead. I took that hand and placed it on my chest. I saw her blush.

Confused Feelings

Amu’s POV

“Amu, I love you.” I stopped breathing. My eyes widened. I couldn’t really describe how I felt. I was so happy but I also felt guilty. If I became his girlfriend, would that be going against Keiichiro even though he is already…dead. But if I tell him I don’t love him back, I would break his heart and I don’t want to hurt anybody anymore. ‘WHAT SHOULD I DO?! I’m so confused!’ I took a deep breath.

“Ikuto, I’m…confused. I don’t know what to tell you. Could I answer your question when I’m ready?” I know that I would hurt him but I couldn’t find another way and I’m confused. Good thing it’s nighttime because I swear I could fell tears in my eyes.

“No, don’t think about it.” My eyes widened and were confused. “What do you mean?”

“Exactly how I said it. You don’t have to think about it because obviously you don’t love me.” I looked closely into his eyes. I winced a little. Pain was etched across his face and eyes. I felt like someone slashed through my heart when ever I saw pain in Ikuto’s eyes. “No, that’s not what—”

“Save it.” I stepped back a little from the cold tone he used when he said that.

“Ikuto, please un—”

“No. Goodbye, Amu.” He ran off.

“Ikuto! Wait!! IKUTO!!” It was too much. I finally let my knees buckled and cried like there was no tomorrow.

Ikuto’s POV


I was so heartbroken and shocked. I thought she loved me too but I guess I was wrong. I reached my car. I realized that if I took my car, Amu couldn’t get home. I felt guilty for that. I reached for my cell phone. I dialed Yoru’s number.

“Hello?”

“It’s Ikuto.”

“What are you doing nya?! I’m having a date with Miki!” I heard Miki’s voice in the background.

“Yoru, are you almost done your date?” I didn’t want to ruin his date with a favor I wanted to ask of him.

“Almost nya. We were about to go home. Why?”

Amu’s POV

I kept on crying. I should’ve chased after him! I am so frustrated and confused! ‘Keiichiro…are you watching me from above? If you are, was this the right thing? Will you feel like I’m a cheater if I go out with Ikuto? Please answer me.’ I looked up at the sky as I said this. Something shot across my vision. A shooting star. That was a brilliant star. Is this his answer? I stood up. I’m not going to waver on my decisions anymore. I’ve decided on what to do.

I turned around to go back to Ikuto’s car but something touched me. More like a hand covered my mouth. I had this experience before. I tried to scream to no avail. He was reaching for my bracelet. I arched my back backward so it would hit him straight in the chest. I heard him grunt and I yanked my arm away from him and when he let go of my mouth, I pushed myself away from him. I took a good look at him. My eyes widened. It’s the same guy from that night! I looked at my wrist and noticed that my bracelet was gone.

“You bastard. Give that back to me! Why are you always aiming for my bracelet?! Are you working for someone?!”

“Bingo.” I slid a little to my left and found who spoke those words. “Utau?!”

“That’s right, Amu. It is me who hired him to take your bracelet and I put that banana peel on the stairs and stopped the elevator. Not to mention I told him to injure you in the café.” My eyes widened. But I also sweatdropped when she put the banana peel on the stairs. Still, all those times, I was near Ikuto. Could this be Utau’s revenge? It felt more like jealousy.

“You coward.” I muttered.

“What did you say?”

“I said that you are a freakin coward!” I ran towards her even though I was wearing pumps and a dress. I should’ve changed into normal clothes when I had the chance! The burglar working for Utau held me back. I struggled in his arms. “Let me go, you bastard!!” He threw the bracelet towards Utau.

“Utau, give that back to me!!”

“No.” She had an evil smile on your face. “Hmm…this bracelet is nice. What if I accidentally threw it into the lake?” She held out the bracelet.

“NO!!” I shrieked. I thought I saw Utau wince a little when I screamed. “Amu-chan!!” The burglar was standing behind me holding be back so I used my right leg and wrapped around his legs and knocked him down. I turned to my right and I saw Miki and Yoru running towards me. I was shocked. “Yoru? Miki? What are you doing here?”

“Ikuto asked me to pick you up because you wouldn’t have a car to drive back here. I know this place because Ikuto showed it to me once nya.”

“Is Ikuto still here?”

“No, he left a while ago.” My heart felt like it was being torn at.

“Oh, I see.”

“Amu-chan! Look!” Miki was pointing behind me towards Utau. Utau was about to throw the bracelet in the lake. I wanted to widen my eyes but they were already widened. I gasped. I saw something blur past me. Miki. It all happened so fast. After I gasped, Miki ran past me towards Utau. Utau was shocked and didn’t expect that. Utau’s hand with the bracelet let go and the bracelet fell in the water with a splash. I shrieked. I ran towards Utau but past her and I went into the lake searching for it. I heard Miki shouting at Utau. Even underwater, the water wasn’t enough to block out Miki’s voice or Utau’s. I wish I had goggles and a water proof flashlight so I could find my bracelet.

“You bitch!” Wow. Miki cursed. “How could you?!”

“I didn’t mean to…”

“Humph. Sure. Like I’m going to believe that!!” Utau didn’t say anything. I saw something shine in the water. I reached for it. My bracelet. I burst from the water to get a good look at it. I was breathing heavily. The cross charm was gone.

Miki’s POV

I am utterly pissed at this woman right in front of me. I haven’t been this mad in a long time. I’m going to make her see the truth.

“How could you?!”

“I didn’t mean to…” I got angrier. “Humph. Sure. Like I’m going to believe that!!”

“You startle me and I let my hand go by accident…” Should I break it to her gently or break it to her like I should do it? I sucked in a deep breath.

“Yea, that may have been an accident but you were aiming for Amu-chan’s bracelet from the beginning!”

“I saw that she was over protective over her bracelet so I thought that if I took it, she would search for it and not be able to get close to Ikuto.” That did it. It was jealousy. That was expected.

“Utau! We are siblings of Ikuto nya!” Yoru? “You should understand his feelings as well as I understand it!” Utau flinched from the words. I looked into Utau’s amethyst eyes. I could see jealousy, hate, anger, and also…sorrow?

“I do know that Ikuto likes Hinamori Amu. I just couldn’t accept that fact. However, if only I wasn’t Ikuto’s sister and born as a normal girl unrelated to him, I could have had a chance!”

“I don’t think so.”

“What do you know, Takayashi Miki?!” she said snapping all of a sudden. “I don’t think I do know because love worked out for me the first time.” I smiled at Yoru. He smiled back at me.

“Yes, that’s right. Only I am the one suffering here. I wish I could’ve been born in another life! I wished that Ikuto would be in love with me but of course he won’t because I am his sister!! Hinamori Amu does not know how this feels because love worked out for her the first time when she met Ikuto!!”

Ikuto’s POV

Yoru still haven’t come back. I decided to head back to the lake. But what should I say when I see her and she sees me?! ‘Screw this. I’m going.’ I ran out of the building and into my car. I drove at top speed towards the lake and took me 10 minutes to get there. I quickly got out of the car and ran for my life. I slowly began to hear voices. Miki and Utau were shouting.

“Yes, that’s right. Only I am the one suffering here.” I got closer and hid behind the trees. Utau was looking and down and…crying? “I wish I could’ve been born in another life! I wished that Ikuto would be in love with me but of course he won’t because I am his sister!!” I suddenly felt guilty. I don’t love Utau like how I love Amu and even though Utau is annoying all the time, I still like her as a sister and she knows that it won’t work out if we are dating. She kept on shouting. “Hinamori Amu does not know how this feels because love worked out for her first time when she met Ikuto!!”

SLAP!!

My eyes widened.

Miki’s POV

“Hinamori Amu does not know how this feels because love worked out for her the first time when she met Ikuto!!” That really did it. I walked right up to her and slapped her as hard as I could in the face. I could see a little blood on her lip. She deserved that.

“Miki!” Yoru was holding my waist from behind me holding me back. “Let me go, Yoru!” I struggled out of his grasp and finally got away from him. I looked beyond Utau and saw Amu standing in the water. She heard what Utau was saying. Amu’s eyes told me that it was alright to tell Utau what happened but her eyes also told me that I shouldn’t because I would hurt Utau’s feelings even more but Utau needed to hear this to know Amu better. I gave Amu a quick smile and told her through my eyes that Utau deserved to know so she won’t think that love was easy for you before turning back to Utau. I was going to have to teach her that love is not easy.

Utau started to say something but I cut her off. “Don’t you dare say anything!” That shut her mouth. I began to talk letting my feelings get the best of me. “What you said was definitely not true. Amu has suffered so much that you wouldn’t believe. I know that everyday, she would cry when she was alone and would smile so she wouldn’t worry us. That bracelet is important to her. You wouldn’t believe how important and special it is to her.”

“I bet it’s just a bracelet from some—”

“Wrong. It’s not from “some” guy. It was from her fiancé.” I saw Amu flinch a little. I gave her another quick smile. I saw Utau’s eyes widen but Utau regained her composure.

“Does that mean that Amu cheated on her fiancé? Is that why you’re saying her love life was hard? That’s she’s a cheater and a whore?” I slapped her again. I was clearly pissed. I saw that Amu was shaking her head fast. I ignored that.

“Stop sla—”

“No, you stop!! Don’t jump to conclusions!! Let me finish!” She was about to say something else but decided against it. “Good. Amu is not a…whore. How would you feel if your fiancé proposed to you in a restaurant giving you a beautiful ring and the bracelet that was just thrown in the lake and you accepted the proposal but your fiancé was shot in the chest by some burglars?!” I glared at the burglar on the ground next to Utau. He flinched. That’s good. Feel the pain, you bastard. “How would you feel if your fiancé died by protecting you from dying and died right in your arms?!” Utau was about to say something but I put a hand up. “How would you feel if one of your best friend actually loved you but he didn’t want to betray his best friend because his best friend is Amu’s boyfriend and he died saving Amu?! HOW WOULD YOU FEEL!!” I screamed. Utau had to understand this. Utau was standing still and at a complete loss of words. I kept going. “How else would you feel that the doctors couldn’t save both of them and their families blamed Amu for killing them?! And also being called a murderer and also saying that you would kill every man you meet!” I was crying right now. I didn’t care. “HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?! Also, how would you feel about loving another man when you already agreed to marry to your first lover but he died a while back?! HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?! ANSWER ME!! TSUKIYOMI UTAU!!” I started crying harder.

Ikuto’s POV

I was at a loss of words. Miki let it all out. Who knew that Amu suffered this much alone. No wonder Amu couldn’t answer me when I confessed to her! She is confused if she would betray her first lover by accepting my love for her. But wait, is that why she acted all cold to me when I was teasing her on the first day of school and those other times? Yaya told me that a lot of people asked Amu out last year. Did she reject them thinking that she would endanger them by getting near her? I saw Amu in the water holding her bracelet. She looked beautiful in that dress. The way the moon shone on her dress and the water on the dress glittered like icicles were magnificent. I saw Amu walk out of the water.

Amu’s POV


Thank you, Miki. You don’t know how much that meant to me. But I don’t think you should be that harsh to Utau. I’ll tell her that later. I walked out of the water feeling a little dizzy. I thought I saw someone beyond Yoru. Was it Ikuto?

“Amu-chan…” Miki said. Utau turned around towards me. Utau’s look had so much pain in it.

“Utau, don’t have a face like that. Smile. Thank you for listening to Miki telling my story. I hope you understand that love is never simple for anybody. Everybody on this planet has struggled with love before including you and me. Utau, you’re actually not so bad.” I smiled. She looked up with a small smile. I started to get even more dizzy and swayed a little. Utau’s eyes widened and were concerned.

“Amu! Are you okay?!” Utau said with concern clearly in her voice. She didn’t need to be worried. It was just a slight headache. “I’m alright.” I replied. I swayed even more and began to fall. My vision began to black out. The last thing I heard was a husky voice that was too familiar calling my name.

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

I opened my eyes. I saw a white ceiling. This was my room. How did I get in my room?! My head still felt dizzy. I felt my forehead. It was burning. I must have caught a cold and then a fever from going into the lake searching for my bracelet. My bracelet! I looked at my wrist and they weren’t there.

“Amu-chan.” I snapped out of my thoughts. I looked to my right and Miki, Ran, and Su were there. “Are you ok?”

“Where is my bracelet?” I asked ignoring their question. I saw the looks on their faces. Shock flooded through me. I quickly pulled the covers off of my body.

“What are you doing, Amu-chan?!” I was starting to get dizzy again. “My bracelet, what else?”

“Lie down or you’ll make your fever worse, desu!”

“But my bracelet—”

“Is fine.” Miki said cutting into my sentence. “Here you go.” She had my bracelet in my hand. I sighed with relief. But where was the charm? “Miki, where is the silver cross charm for this bracelet?” Miki was uneasy.

“We don’t know. You were clutching onto your bracelet and the charm was missing when you held it. We checked in the water again but we still couldn’t find it.” I sank back down. How could this be?!

“Tell what happened after I blacked out?”

“Well, Ikuto came out from nowhere yelling your name and ran towards you. He picked you up from the ground because you fainted. He then put you in his car and drove back to our college. Since the Tsukiyomis’ are quite acquainted with the school’s superintendent and principal, we were able to get in the building even though it was almost 11.”

“Eleven?! We’ve been out for that long?”

“Yea. Ikuto carried you back to your bed and laid you down. He carried you bridal style by the way.” I blushed. “We asked if he wanted to stay here and watch over you but he said that that probably wasn’t the best idea.” I immediately felt guilty. Of course, he thought I rejected him.

“Where is Ikuto, now?”

“In his room with Yoru. I told Ran and Su what happened so they won’t bombard you with questions.” I laughed and then coughed.

“You should eat your medicine and then sleep desu.”

“Ok, I will.” For once, I’m tired of everything that happened today. But I still had one more question for them. “What happened to Utau?”

“She disappeared. That coward.” Miki growled.

“Speaking of which, you shouldn’t’ve yelled that loud to Utau!”

“But she deserved it!”

“It doesn’t matter. I was hoping that you won’t spill everything but I guess that she should hear what I had to say—what you had to say. Thank you.”

“Oops. Wait, what? Why are you thanking me?”

“You told Utau that love wasn’t easy but I wanted to say that to her gentler.”

“I didn’t do it all for you. I did it for myself too. She was getting on my nerve.” I smiled. Miki is always acting like that to keep her cool. “Now I have to get my sleep. Good night.” And I went under the covers again.

:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X

I woke up. I was feeling much better. I think the fever’s gone. I looked at the clock to my right. 5:30. I sighed. That was way too early. I also noticed something else on my night side table. Something shiny. My charm. I gasped. I took the charm and put it back onto the clasp on my bracelet. I then put the bracelet on. There was also a note on the table.

Sorry.

That was all the paper read. Was it Utau? I smiled. I think Utau will probably like me and maybe we could be friends. I then heard music. Violin playing. Ikuto’s playing. It was easy to distinguish his music from the other peoples’ music. Ikuto’s playing is sorrowful and sad but still beautiful. I quickly got out of my bed. I went out the door and ran to the music room. Why would Ikuto be playing so early in the morning? The door was partly open. I took a peek. And my guess was right. It was Ikuto playing. The music is sad. His back was towards me so I slowly and gracefully opened the door a bit more and stepped in. I recognized this song I hummed to it. Ikuto turned around the saw me and shock crossed his eyes but he never stopped playing.

After he was done, there was an awkward silence. I took a bold action and spoke the first sentence.

“What are you doing here so early in the morning?”

“I couldn’t sleep so I decided to play a little.”

“Oh.”

“How is your fever?”

“I’m fine. The fever has cooled down a bit.” I replied. There was another awkward silence.

“I should get going. Bye.”

“No!” I yelled a little bit too loudly.

“Why do you care?” His tone was so cold. I cringed a little. “I do care.”

“Yea, right.” he said in a sarcastic tone.

“I’m serious.” I walked up to him. I was probably blushing hard. I looked up at his midnight blue eyes. I could see hurt and I was the cause of that. I want to heal that pain in his eyes.

“I’m sorry, Ikuto. I was confused before about my feelings towards you but I’m not anymore. I…” I took a deep breath. ‘I’ll still love you Keiichiro but...’ The sun rose. I took another breath.

“I love you, Ikuto.” I smiled a sheepish smile and blushed hard. ‘But…I love Ikuto more. Keiichiro, you will always be in my heart though. My first lover.’ I was still looking down when Ikuto brought me into a hug. I snuggled in his arms.

“Geez…I thought you hated me.”

“Of course I didn’t! I would never hate you!” I looked up. “I lo—” I was cut off. When I looked up he placed his lips on mine. I started to kiss him back and closed my eyes. Ikuto wrapped his arms tighter around my waist and I had my right hand in his azure hair. Our kiss became more passionate by the second. His tongue demanded entrance and I immediately allowed him to explore my tongue. When we broke off of each other’s lips, we were gasping for air. I smiled at him and he hugged me again.

“I love you, Amu.” He kissed me on the forehead.

“Me too…Ikuto.”

Chapter 7

X-x-Flashback of Chapter 6-x-X

“I’m sorry, Ikuto. I was confused before about my feelings towards you but I’m not anymore. I…” I took a deep breath. ‘I’ll still love you Keiichiro but...’ The sun rose. I took another breath.

“I love you, Ikuto.” I smiled a sheepish smile and blushed hard. ‘But…I love Ikuto more. Keiichiro, you will always be in my heart though. My first lover.’ I was still looking down when Ikuto brought me into a hug. I snuggled in his arms.

Surprise

Amu’s POV

“Hey, Ikuto? Do you want to go somewhere on Saturday?”

“Sure. Where do you want to go?”

“Doesn’t matter with me as long as you’re with me.” I smiled.

“How about this, I’ll come by your dorm at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday.”

“Ok. Where are we going?”

“That’s a secret.” He smirked.

“Fine. I gotta go now. Bye, Ikuto.” I gave him a kiss on the cheek and ran off. When I told Ikuto I loved him, I was really happy. That was 3 weeks ago.

“Amu-chan!!”

“Hmm?”

“Could you go to the grocery store and buy supplies desu? We’re running out of food.”

“No problem.” She gave me the list. “Bye.” I headed out the door and out the building. I got into my car and listened to soothing violin music. Music always reminds me of him no matter what songs I play. After I arrived to the grocery store, I parked in the parking lot. I got all the things that Su wanted and was about to leave the store when I thought I saw someone familiar. I turned my full body towards the direction where I saw the person but he was already gone. Maybe it was just my imagination. I walked out of the store and headed back home.

X-x- Before Class-x-X

Ikuto’s POV


I sighed. Another boring day as usual. It’s only interesting if Amu is here. I saw Amu yawn. That worried me. “Are you tired, Amu?”

“I’m fine.”

“No, you’re not.”

She was about to argue back when Nikaidou-sensei interrupted that class. “Minna-san! Quiet down! I have an announcement to make. There will be a new student coming here.” There were murmurings in the class. ‘A new student? At this time of year? We’re almost done school…’

“Do you think the new transfer student will be a girl or boy?”

“I hope it will be a girl.” She smacked me. “Hey!”

“Stupid Ikuto.”

“I only wanted a girl because that’s better than a guy! Well, in some ways. If he’s a guy, he’ll start flirting with you and that will really piss me off.”

“Why would he flirt with me?! I’m average.” I smirked. “Sure you are.” She blushed and was bout to disagree when Nikaidou-sensei quieted us down again.

“Ok. You can come in now!” I saw the student come in. A boy. Just perfect. What really surprised me though was Amu’s shocked expression.

Amu’s POV

Ohmigod! Sachio!! How can this be?! Was he the one I saw yesterday at the supermarket? I thought it was him. My mouth was an O. I must’ve looked like an idiot.

“Nice to meet you. My name is Sachio.” There were mumblings from the class. The girls were eyeing him with interest and some boys were jealous. I have to admit, Sachio is handsome. ‘Where was he going to sit though?’ I looked around. The only seat available was next to me. Su switched spots with Tadase-kun because I was talking with Su too much. Tadase-kun then moved to the other side of the classroom in the last column in an empty seat because he talks too much. I gulped. I’m happy but will Ikuto be? Sachio saw me and smiled towards my direction. I couldn’t help but smile back.

Ikuto’s POV

Does Amu know him? I saw them smile at each other and I got pissed. That Sachio kid sat down next to Amu.

Amu’s POV

“Hey, Amu-chan.”

“Why are here, Sachio? Did you move here?”

“My mom wanted to move here.”

“I see. Could I ask you something?”

“What is it, Amu-chan?”

“Are “they” still mad at me?” Sachio knew exactly what I meant. “Not mad but they still won’t get near you.” I smiled a little. At least Keiichiro’s parents and Hiro’s parents aren’t mad anymore. “It’s my fault.”

“No, it wasn’t! It was an accident!”

“Amu, do you know him?” Ikuto interrupted me. I turned to face him. I saw something in his eyes. Was it jealousy? Why would he be jealous? I’ll always love Ikuto.

“Yea I know him. He was my friend before I moved here.”

“Hi. I’m Sachio.”

“Tsukiyomi Ikuto.” Ikuto glared towards Sachio. Sachio’s look was innocent but he is probably confused.

“Ikuto!”

“What?”

“Stop glaring at Sachio!”

“Humph.” He looked away.

“Sorry, Sachio.”

“It’s ok.”

“Quiet down!!” Nikaidou-sensei said interrupting our conversation.

“I’m going to my parents’ house today for a short time. Do you want to come along?” I whispered.

“Sure. I haven’t seen them in a while.” he responded.

“Great! Meet me after school at the front entrance.” I turned back to the front of the classroom. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Ikuto looking angry.

X-x-End of School-x-X

“Ikuto, I gotta go now. I’m going to visit my parents with Ran, Miki, Su, and Sachio.”

“Have fun.” he said boringly.

“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing’s wrong.” He snapped.

“Are you…jealous?”

“Pssh! As if!” I smiled. I raised my hand and stroked his hair.

“I’ll be back soon. How about on Sunday you come along with me when I visit my parents? It’ll just be the two of us.”

“Really?”

“Yea.” I smiled. “I’m sure they would like to meet my boyfriend but I haven’t even told them yet that I have a boyfriend.” I said sheepishly and blushed. When I dropped my hand, he raised his right hand and caressed my cheek. It felt warm.

“I have to go, Ikuto.” Ikuto kissed me on the forehead and I blushed again. “Bye, Amu.”

“Ok. Bye!” I ran off down the hallway. I finally reached the entrance and saw Sachio, Ran, Miki, and Su there waiting for me. I told the girls to come with me during lunchtime.

“Geez, Amu-chan! What took you?”

“Sorry, Ran! Have you been waiting long?”

“No, we’ve only been waiting a minute.” Ran grinned. I hit her playfully on the head. “Stupid Ran.” I muttered under my breath.

“Are you guys ready to go?”

“Yep.” We walked out of the building and I led them to my car.

“Nice car.”

“Thanks, Sachio.” As we got settled in the car, all of us started asking questions at once.

“Sachio-kun, how long have you been here?” Ran said excitedly.

“Why didn’t you call us? We could have picked you up, Sachio-kun.” Miki said.

“How long are you staying Tokyo desu?”

“How have things been going since we left, Sachio?” I asked quietly.

“I can only answer one question at a time! I’ll answer Ran-chan’s first. And I arrived here two days ago. Miki-chan, I thought you shouldn’t go to that much trouble and I would be seeing you soon anyways. And Su, I’m staying here until my Mom has her job here. And finally Amu-chan’s, things are going…well. Keiichiro’s and Hiro’s parents are still mourning but they want to be strong. I’m not positive that they are not mad at you but it seems that way.” I kept on driving. Nobody said anything for the rest of the car ride.

We finally reached our house and it looked the same as ever. I rang the door bell and my Mom came out. “Amu-chan! Ran-chan, Miki-chan, Su-chan!! She hugged us all really tight. “Why are you here?”

“To come visit. And guess who came, Mom?” I stepped aside so Sachio could get in the picture.

“Hello, Hinamori-san. It’s been a while.”

“Sachio-kun?! What a surprise!” My Mom hugged Sachio. “Why are you here in Tokyo?”

“My Mom has a job here so we moved here. We’re going back to Osaka when my Mom decides to get another job.”

“I see. Send my regards to your mother for me, ok? Now, it’s almost dinnertime so why don’t you join us for dinner?”

“I have to call my mom first. I have to ask her something. Could I use your phone?”

“Of course. The phone is in the living room.”

“Thank you.” He headed towards the living room.

Sachio’s POV

“Mother?”

“Sachio?”

“Yes, it’s me. I’m having dinner at the Hinamoris’.”

“Hmm…don’t stay with them long ok? Hurry and leave afterwards.”

“Ok. I’ll be sure to do that. Bye, Mom.”

“Bye, Sachio.” She hung up.

Amu’s POV

Sachio came back. “Let’s go eat dinner, Sachio!” I smiled at him. “Ok,” he responded.

X-x-After Dinner-x-X

“Bye, Mom!”

“Bye, everybody! Come back some time, ok?”

“Oh, Mom?”

“Yes, sweetie?”

“I’ll be coming back Sunday. Just wanted to let you know.”

“Ok. Bye!” We settled in the car. I began driving back to our college.

“Amu-chan?”

“Yes, Ran?”

“Why are you going back so soon?”

“Well, I promised Ikuto that I would bring him to my parents’ house.”

“Oh, I see. That means we can’t come right? You guys need your private time explaining to your parents.” Ran smiled. I blushed. “Shut up!”

“Explain what, Amu-chan?”

“Oh, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you yet. You see, Ikuto is my boyfriend.” I slightly blushed at my statement.

“I see.” Sachio looked out the window. None of us really talked much during the rest of the ride to college.

“Ahh…I’m so tired!” Ran whined.

“Where is your dorm, Sachio-kun desu?”

“Right there.” He pointed towards the window on the right side of the building from the 2nd floor. “I hope you can hang out with us sometimes desu!”

“Sure.” I could have sworn his face blushed right now. When we went into the building, we said our goodbyes to each other.

“You guys go ahead. I’m going to the music room.”

“Ok, Amu-chan!” I turned around and walked to the music room. I opened the door and no one was in it. I sighed in relief. I walked over to the piano and began playing one of my favorite songs.

A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton

Makin' my way downtown,
Walkin' fast,
Faces pass and I'm homebound.

Starin' blankly ahead,
Just makin' my way,
Makin' a way through the crowd.

And I need you,
And I miss you,
And now I wonder...

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...
Tonight.

It's always times like these
When I think of you,
And wonder if you ever think of me.

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong.
Livin' in your precious memory.

'Cause I need you,
And I miss you,
And now I wonder...

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...
Tonight.

I, I, don't wanna let you know
I, I, drown in your memory.
I, I, don't wanna let this go.
I, I, don't.

Makin' my way downtown,
Walkin' fast,
Faces pass and I'm homebound.

Starin' blankly ahead,
Just makin' my way,
Makin' a way through the crowd.

And I still need you,
And I still miss you,
And now I wonder...

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
Would pass.. us by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...

oh oh

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you.

If I could just hold you...
Tonight.


After I was done singing and playing, I felt arms wrap around my waist from behind. “I loved your singing,” a husky voice whispered in my ear. A shiver went down my spine.

“Thanks, Ikuto. What are you doing here?”

“Well I went to your room but you weren’t there and your friends said you went to the music room so I came here.” He smiled. I smiled back.

“Can you play the violin for me, Ikuto?”

“Of course, my little strawberry.” He smirked.

“Pervert!” I exclaimed going red. He laughed. He turned my body around so my chest faced him. He enveloped me in a big hug. I hugged him back. “But before I play the violin,” He released my and he locked his lips with mine. The kiss was passionate and I could tell he was hungry. He put his tongue in my mouth and explored my whole mouth. I was redder by the second. I broke the kiss gasping for air. He then kissed me on the forehead. “Now I can play.”

“Pervert.” He laughed and took out his violin.

Sachio’s POV


“Did you stay long?”

“No, Mother.”

“Good. Remember, you have a job to do. Don’t fail me and especially the family of Fukushimas’.

“I know, Mother. I’ll do my best. Good night.”

“Good night, son.”

Click.

I hung up the phone as well. I sighed. I guess I should start working on my plan…

Boyfriend

Ikuto’s POV

“Good morning, Sachio!”

“Mornin’, Amu-chan.” He smiled. I still get pissed when he does that. I don’t know if it’s just me but the way he looks at her, it’s like he wants to kill her. I shivered a little. That’s not possible is it? Only if…

“Ikuto?” I snapped out of my thoughts. “Yea?”

“Are you ok? You seem kind of dazed.”

“It’s nothing.”

“Hmm…”

“What?”

“Suspicious.” Amu still seemed worried.

X-x-Saturday-x-X

Amu’s POV


Knock. Knock. Knock.

“Amu-chan! Your boyfriend is here!”

“Shut up, Ran!” I blushed. I’m still not used to people saying that we were girlfriend and boyfriend.

“Miki, how do I look?” I remember saying that the night when Keiichiro proposed. But that won’t happen again will it? I doubt it.

“Hmm…you look pretty! Now go or you’ll make Ikuto-san impatient!”

“Bye!” I pushed Ikuto out of our dorm and closed the door behind me. I heard them shouting, “Have fun!” before I closed the door. “Hi, Ikuto!”

“Hey, Amu. Don’t you look pretty.” He smirked. I was wearing a navy tank top and a black skirt that reaches 2 or 3 inches above my knee. I was also wearing my cross necklace. I blushed.

“Thanks.” I replied. “So can you spill your secret about where we’re going?”

“Just wait.” I pouted. We walked some more until I came to a dark place covered by trees.

“Ikuto, what is this?” I turned to my right but he wasn’t there. “Ikuto?”

Bam!

Lights were everywhere.

“Ikuto!” He was walking towards me.

“I found this one day I was walking but I can only open it if I flick this switch but it’ll only be on for two hours or so.”

“It’s amazing!” An amusement park. “Do you always wander into places like these all the time?”

He smiled. “Yea, somehow. I have a lot more places I want to show you.” He walked towards me and hugged me.

“Well, you can show me anytime. I have all the time in the world.” I smiled at him looking up.”

“What ride do you want to go on?”

I froze. I really want to but I’m an adult for crying out loud! I turned around and put my arms on my chest. I’ll just put up my “Cool & Spicy” act but…

“Ikuto, I’m an adult! I can’t be riding rides like these like a kid!”

“Drop it.”

“Huh?”

“You don’t have to act all cool in front of me.” …But Ikuto is the only person who can see through every single one of my acts. I act cool in front of Ran, Miki, and Su but they sometimes don’t know that I act cool in front of them as an act.

“How do you do it?” I asked.

“Do what?”

“See through me.”

“It’s easy. And I’m your boyfriend. I should know.”

“Ok.” Ikuto hugged me from behind again. “So what ride do you want to go on?”

“Hmm…” I don’t know actually. I haven’t been on rides for a long time. “How about a roller coaster?”

He smirked. “You want be scared?” I smacked him on the head.

“Don’t be stupid! I’m an adult!!”

“Let’s go then.” He released me from his hug and reached for my hand and led me to the roller coasters.

X-x-On the Roller Coaster-x-X

“AHHHH!!” I was screaming at the top of my lungs. Ikuto didn’t make a single scream and kept on smirking at me. Stupid Ikuto. After the ride, I was heaving up and down.

“Did you have fun, Amu?”

“Yes even though I was so scared.” I smiled. “How about the bumper cars next, Ikuto?”

“Ok.”

“Wait, what rides do you want to go on, Ikuto? You should pick a ride too.”

“I’ll go on the ride you choose.” I blushed. “If you insist.” I replied.

X-x-Bumper Cars-x-X

“Amu?”

“Yea?”

“I’m gonna beat you.” He smirked.

“Wipe that smirk off you face. I’ll be the winner.” Now I was smirking. “Whoever gets hit the most loses.”

“You’re on.” I got in a red car. Ikuto got in a blue car.

“Ready, go!” I shouted.

X-x-After Bumper Cars-x-X

“I win!” I pouted. Ikuto won in the end. I wasn’t very good at controlling the car actually. He hit me 15 times and I hit him 8 times.

“Let’s go here next.”

I smiled. “I’m glad you’re picking a ride.” I looked at the ride and where he was looking at wasn’t even a ride.

“No way am I going in there!!”

“Aw, come on. It’s not so scary. You can hold onto me if you want to.” He smirked.

“No! I hate haunted houses!”

“Let’s go.” He dragged me in.

“NOOOOO!!”

X-x-In the Haunted House-x-X

“AHHH!! I KNEW THIS WAS A BAD IDEA!!”

“Relax. It’s not so scary.”

“Liar!” A grim reaper flew right past me after I said that. “EEEKKK!!” I held onto Ikuto tightly. I could see him smirking the whole time in the haunted house. He kissed my forehead.

“You can hold onto my anytime you want to.”

“Pervert!”

X-x-Out of the Haunted House-x-X

I sighed in relief. At least that’s over. I was scared shitless mind you.

“Did you have fun?” Stupid smirk. “No.”

“Where do you want to go next, Amu?” he asked ignoring my answer.

“Hmm…this way!” I dragged him to where I want to go.

“The teacups?”

“Yep!” I smiled. It’s fun to be on it. We can talk as much as we want to.

“Fine.” We got into it. I was laughing. I could barely fit into it but Ikuto looked so big in it! Ikuto sat next to me instead of across from me.

“Stop laughing!” Ikuto was blushing.

“Haha!”

“Amu?” I stopped laughing. “What is it, Ikuto?”

“Are you having fun?”

“Yes, of course. Why? And are you?”

“I’m having fun if you are having fun.” He ignored my first question. I decided to let him off.

“Could I ask you something, Amu?”

“Sure, what is it?” Who knew that what I was going to hear was going to be the one question I hope he won’t ask.

“Could you tell me about your past with Keiichiro?”

I froze. I could hear my heart stiffen. I then sighed. Ikuto deserves to know but…

“What brought this on?”…I tried to avoid it.

“Stop escaping the question.” Busted. “I heard Miki shouting about that to Utau and I was curious so…”

Oh. “Fine, but wait, you were there?”

“Yea. I didn’t want to go out so you can see me so I hid behind the trees.”

“Oh.” I took a deep breath. “If I tell you about him and me, will you not like me anymore?” I think I was gonna cry. I didn’t want him to think that I still love him even though Keiichiro is…dead. I love Ikuto.

He brought his hand to my cheek. “Of course I won’t.” I took a deep breath.

“I remember this like it was yesterday. I met Keiichiro when I was 7. I thought of him as one of my best friends but I started to realize that I was falling in love with him. When I was 19, he asked me out. I was delighted of course and I accepted.” I looked at Ikuto and he urged me to go on. I took another breath.

“I went out with him for two years. He gave me this—” I pointed to my cross necklace. “—on our second date. During the second year of our relationship as girlfriend and boyfriend, he asked me to go out with him. I said yes of course and he came to pick me up. Do you remember what I wore when I played the piano?” He nodded. “I wore that exact same outfit. He led me to a fancy restaurant and he gave me a bracelet.”

“The bracelet that you always dropped?” Ikuto asked interrupting me.

“Well, I didn’t exactly drop it. Utau sent those burglars after me.” He became angry. “I’m alright though and I found my bracelet in the end.” I smiled. “After that, a waitress came to our table with a bouquet of flowers. I found a small box inside it.” I saw Ikuto’s eyes widened. I kept on going. “He took the box from me and proposed to me.” I felt a tear drop. Ikuto wiped it away. “I said yes to his proposal.” I saw Ikuto wince. More tears fell from my honey gold eyes. “When I said yes, I heard gunshots. It was burglars of course. They tried to touch me but Keiichiro defended me and he got shot in the process. I screamed and screamed but I knew that it was pointless. His last words to me were ‘I love’. He couldn’t say you. I heard sirens and Keiichiro’s friends, Hiro and Sachio, were the ones who called the police.”

“Sachio? The kid in our class?”

“The very one. Sachio went to get the doctors from the ambulance. There was one burglar left that didn’t get caught by the police yet and it seems that he overheard our conversation. He was enraged. He pointed the gun towards me probably to get Hiro upset or angry but…” I sobbed. “Hiro pushed me out of the way and got shot instead.” I could feel more tears falling. Ikuto was trembling beside me. “Ikuto? Are you alright?”

“Damn that bastard to the deepest pits of hell. How dare he point that gun towards you!” Ikuto snarled. I patted his back I went on. “We went to the hospital and waited to see if Hiro and Keiichiro were alive. They still had their heartbeats even though it seems that they were dead. We waited and waited. The doctors finally came out. I still remember their exact words. ‘I’m sorry…we did everything we could.’ I kept on crying like there was no tomorrow. I wanted to reach out to them and feel them before they would be buried. When I was about to go inside the operation room and the doctors stopped me and I knew that I couldn’t go in there of course. But what surprised me the most was when Keiichiro’s mom stopped me and told me to go away. I was shocked obviously.” I took another breath. Ikuto hugged me.

“I shouted that I never wanted this to happen. Keiichiro’s mom spat these exact words right at my face, ‘GO AWAY! You’re not welcome here you monster! You killed my son and Hiro!! You’ll kill every man that you’ll know!! LEAVE!’. I just stood there like an idiot standing there with tears falling out of my eyes. I then heard Hiro’s mom talking to me. ‘Hinamori-san…please…go. My son, Hiro, has always loved you since he first met you…and now you made him hurt…GO!’. I was stunned. I began to feel dizzy and I thought to myself how many thoughtless times I called Hiro ‘one of my best friends’ and how I talked about Keiichiro in front of me.” I lowered my head so my bangs would cover my eyes. I kept on crying. “I was really an idiot back then. I even thought of committing suicide but Miki, Ran, and Su stopped me before I could even try.”

“Stupid!”

“Huh?” Why was Ikuto calling me stupid? Ikuto hugged me harder.

“Why would you even think of committing suicide?!” I didn’t answer him. “And she’s a liar.”

“Who?”

“Keiichiro’s mother. You didn’t kill every man you met.” He smiled my favorite smile. He rarely smiled so I loved it when he did. “You still have me.”

“Ikuto...I,” Before I could say anything else, Ikuto brought his lips to mine. He was hungry, I could tell. He put his tongue inside of my mouth and I felt my knees go weak and it’s a good thing I was sitting down. He then licked my lower lip and I moaned his name. I wanted more. Ikuto kissed me harder and I brought my hand up to his azure hair.

BAM!!

I jumped a few inches. I broke the kiss gasping for air. I looked up. My eyes widened.

“Damn it.”

“Ikuto, did you do this?”

“Yea. I thought that that would make you happy.” Fireworks were everywhere.

“How did you do that?”

“I have my ways.”

“Thank you.” I brought my lips to his again. After a minute of kissing, Ikuto spoke.

“Amu?”

“Hmm…” I was snuggling in his chest even though the teacup was so small.

“I’m answering your question. No, I don’t like you.” I could feel my breath stop. “I love you.”

“Stupid, Ikuto! I thought you hated me!”

“Of course not. Who would hate you?”

“Keiichiro’s and Hiro’s mom.”

“That wasn’t your fault.”

“But—” He silenced me with another kiss. I broke the kiss again and looked at the sky. It was so dark.

“Ikuto! It’s really late!”

Bam!


Lights shut down everywhere. I sighed. I got out of the teacup and my knees buckled. Ikuto picked me up bridal style just in time. I was so stiff. I wanted to stretch.

“Ikuto! Put me down!”

“Why? You don’t like me holding you?”

“No, but I’m so stiff!” He gently put me down and I stretched. After I was done, he picked me up again.

“What are you doing?” He put me down in front of the switch.

“This is?”

“I just wanted to show you where the switch is.” The switch was red and was on this type of wall.

“Ikuto, let’s go. It’s getting really late—ahh!” He suddenly pinned me to the wall next to it. My wrists were above my head and he held it there with his left hand. With his right hand, he kept on sliding it up and down my left arm. That felt really good. I moaned. He then kissed me hungrily. ‘What’s up with Ikuto? He never was like this.’

I felt his free hand on my thigh. My eyes widened. He then released our kiss and I was gasping for air as always but Ikuto wanted more. His lips went to my neck and started licking it up and down. I shivered. What has gotten into Ikuto? He’s not like this.

He brought his right hand to my shoulder to the straps of my tank top. He slid the straps down but the shirt still covered my chest. I stopped breathing.

“Ikuto?”

“Hmm…” He then went to my lips and licked the corner of it. I pulled my face to my left.

“Why are you doing this? You’re never like this…”

“Is there a problem?” He went back to my neck and sucked on my skin.

“Not really but this isn’t like you.” I moaned with pleasure. He went to my straps again and was about to slide it all the way down so he could see my breasts. I tried to free my wrists. It wouldn’t budge. “Ikuto! Stop!” I felt like crying. I didn’t want it to be like this. He snapped out of it. I felt a single tear drop. He stepped away quickly and looked away.

“Sorry,” he muttered. I pulled my straps up and fixed myself. “I’m such a loser. I promised to not make you cry and I did,”

“Ikuto? Are you alright?” He turned around and hugged my really tight.

“Of course I’m alright. I’m sorry. I don’t know what happened but after you said that story and I said that I loved you, I went into a daze. I wanted to show you that Keiichiro’s mom was lying and how much I love you…”

“Thank you.” I smiled.

X-x-Sunday-x-X

“Amu, are you sure?”

“They should know. Let’s go!” As promised, Ikuto would come with me to meet my parents today. We got into Ikuto’s car.

“Why do we have to go in your car?”

“It’s nicer.” I smacked him on the arm. He laughed. “Can I drive though, Ikuto?”

“Fine.”

“Yay!” I got into the car and started driving. I have to admit, it felt great!

“Amu!”

“What?”

“Slow down!!” We were going 80 mph.

“Why?”

“Just do it!”

“Fine.” I pouted and went down to 65 mph.

“Better?”

“Yea.”

“I hate driving slow.”

“You call this slow?”

“Well, this is normal to me but I have never rode in a nice car like yours and it feels great to drive.”

“Amu…you can drive my car anytime.”

“Really?” My eyes lit up.

“Only when I’m with you though.”

“Good enough.” We reached my house. I heard Ikuto mutter, “Crazy woman.” I smacked him on the head playfully. I took a deep breath.

“Shall we?” I asked.

“Sure.” I rang the doorbell. I heard footsteps. The door opened.

“Ah!! Amu-ch—who is this?”

“Can we go in first?”

“Ok…” She led us inside.

“Mama, who is it? Amu-chan!” My father stopped in his tracks. “Papa, sit down first and let me explain!” Ami came in.

“Ah! Onee-chan! Who is that? Your boyfriend?”

“Ami!!” My dad did faint. Oh my god. This is more complicated then I thought. “Mom, can we just sit down?”

“Sure.” Ami sat down quickly and Mom dragged Dad to the couch and he seemed to have regained conscious.

“Papa, take a deep breath. It’s nothing big.” Wrong. This was big. I saw Ikuto’s mouth in a hard line. I knew he was holding in his laugh. I nudged him with my elbow and he regained his composure on his face.

“Ok, Amu-chan. Tell me who this gentleman is.”

“This is Tsukiyomi Ikuto.”

“Hinamori-san?” Ikuto? Why was he talking?

“Yes, Tsukiyomi-kun?”

“Call me Ikuto.”

“Alright, Ikuto-kun. What is it?”

“I’m Amu’s boyfriend.”
