15th of October 2008 - Hironori, Sayumi, Eri, Reina "Shh!," Sayumi hurried to hush as she put a finger over her lips. Then she helped with holding the door still and before long Eri had managed to get the pants out and Sayumi hurried to close the door to Reina's room before walking over to Eri. That the girls had guys here wasn't that weird, it was quite normal actually, both Eri and Sayumi herself had had guys here when the other girls were around. But never had any of them left clothes outside of their room. "You find something?"
Making a face of concentration, Eri ignored the question for a little longer until she ultimately hit the jackpot in Mr. Mysterious’ back pocket. Triumphantly fishing out the wallet, she let go of the pants a bit stupidly as there was quite a loud noise as the belt hit the floor. Jumping in surprise, she dropped the wallet as well that fell open which comically enough made Hironori’s spare condoms fall out. Clamping a hand over her mouth not to laugh out loud, she lifted the small packages up between her thumb and index finger almost as if they were dirty. “I guess Reina keeps a reserve in her room…?,” she shamelessly commented, giggling some more as if this was the most hilarious thing ever.
Sayumi couldn't help but giggle little at the discovery and hurried to cover her mouth so she wouldn't make too much noise. Then she crouched and started to look through the wallet - of course not going through cards or anything, nor looking at how much money was in it, but simply looked for an id-card of some sort. Before long she saw a card that had 'school' written on the top and with excited eyes she took it out before standing straight to show Eri. "Hiro... nori Kusa...no?," she read out loud, finding it just a little bit difficult to read roman letters when they were written by someone. "Eh... Kusano?"
“Kusano, Kusano, Kusano…,” Eri repeated in mumbles to herself as she tried to think, completely forgetting that she was still holding onto the guy’s collection of condoms. That name sounded awfully familiar though and looking at his photo, he looked quite familiar too. Then suddenly she was struck by an aha-experience, lighting up like a light bulb and dropping the condoms back on the floor again. “Aaah!” She didn’t realize exactly how loud she’d been with that exclamation, but she just stood there frozen in her pose while trying to put her finger on exactly what it was that had made her go ‘aaah!’. She had a clear image in her head though of a slightly younger Kusano together with some other guys.
Sayumi, having always been a fan of idols (though mostly female), recognized the boy of course. She didn't remember from which group or if he was a Johnny or not, but after having thought of it some more, she too remembered - though a bit more clear than Eri. "NEWS!," she said, her voice low because she didn't want Reina or Hironori to come out and see her and Eri like this. "Isn't it? Isn't he one of the guys from NEWS who... aren't NEWS anymore?"
“Aah, he’s a bad boy!,” Eri managed to somehow exclaim back down at whispering-level, staring wide-eyed at the card, thinking that that was just like Reina. She was a bit bad-ass after all so of course she would end up with some bad ass. But if he used to be an idol he probably had a nice ass. “So… he’s like in there now…?” Wanting to take a peak, she approached the door, carefully putting her ear against it to make sure that… well, make sure they wouldn’t interrupt anything by opening the door. Hopefully they were just sleeping though and then they’d be able to sneak a peek without anyone noticing. Then everyone would be happy!
"Careful, careful...," Sayumi whispered as she took light steps to stand behind Eri while she opened the door. Thankfully these doors barely made any sound at all when they closed and opened and so the two of them managed to get a good view of Reina and her boyfriend laying close to each other under the cover. Sayumi's eyes widened as she noticed the underwear on the floor and once Eri had closed the door, she took a quick look around. "They threw around the clothes," she explained, seeing no other reason to why Hironori's pants would have been by the door, the underwear so carelessly put on the floor and... Reina's shirt on the couch. "I am -so- glad I didn't get back home last night."
For a couple of seconds both the girls were quiet as the assessed the order (or rather disorder) of the room, but then Eri made a sound of choked laughter as he got an idea. After all, there was no way they couldn’t tease Reina about this. It was just… too extreme to be left alone. “Hey, why don’t we…,” she started, turning playful eyes at her friend, almost bouncing a little at the spot while she rubbed her palms together in a plotting manner. “Like, gather all the clothes and put them neatly by the door so they’ll totally know that we’ve totally noticed!”
"She'll kill us," Sayumi instantly replied with a smile before she nodded. Of course they would use this against Reina - there was no way that they couldn't after all. Of course she would be angry at them, yell and curse quite a lot, but it would all be just because she was so embarrassed and thus it was okay. In the end Reina would end up being shy about it and shy Reina was hilarious Reina and you needed someone to be hilarious too! Of course Eri could be, she was quite a lot, but more than anything she was weird.
Unknowing of the meddling girls that had now entered the apartment, Hironori let out a small grunt as he stretched his limbs as he woke up for real this time. The moment when Reina had tried to wake him up was a vague memory, but the night before was imprinted in his mind forever. Such happy moments were too great to be forgotten after all and grinning some he dove down under the blanket and began kissing Reina’s naked stomach. Hopefully she’d wake up happy and playful this way. She was really awesome to be with that way after all, he proudly knew by experience.
Just after one or two kisses, Reina moved a little and then when she realized what was actually happening, she blinked a couple of times. She had had weird ways to wake up before and with Hironori she had experienced only one morning so far, but she could without doubt say that this was definitely the best morning ever. "Morning," she mumbled after a couple of seconds and even went so far as to lift the cover a bit and look down at Hironori's head. Not that she saw much else but his hair but still. "Stupid."
Hironori couldn’t help but laugh a little at that, too happy to feel insulted. He knew she liked it anyway. “Good morning, sexy~!,” he chirped in English, moving his trail of kisses upwards, aiming for Reina’s mouth. On his way he adorned her skin with licks and bites that were bordering on x-rated. He just couldn’t get enough of her. “Slept well or would you rather have stayed up all night~?” Not that he’d been able to stay up much longer after that last round, but talking big afterwards was easy to do.
Thinking back of the night that had seemed to never end, Reina smiled a bit shyly at Hironori. It wasn’t that she was embarrassed talking about it or anything, definitely not, but it was still a bit… When he brought it up like that. She couldn’t help but feel a bit shy. “I can do without sleeping for a night,” she commented in reply then, not saying which she actually would have preferred. Honestly she probably would have been way too tired to do much more than they had, but the thought of going a whole night… and then get up and to work, it was pretty fun. Except for that you’d probably be dead tired at work of course.
Hironori chuckled at her response, liking her attitude as always… okay not always, because there had undeniably been days when her attitude had totally killed him in frustration, but you know, all that was good in the end anyway because that was the Reina he’d fallen for. “Is that a promise~?,” he asked huskily, moving so he lay on top of her, private parts coming shamelessly in touch with each other in most promising ways as neither of them had bothered to get any clothes on before falling asleep. Half of their clothes weren’t in the room anyway. “Because I’ll make you live up to that promise~!” Right after having said that though, there was the sound of someone unable to hold back a giggle and in pure shock; Hironori threw himself off Reina, pulling the covers with him. He soon realized how rude that was though and threw it back on top of her and hurried to grab the closest thing he could find as replacement… which happened to be one of Reina’s skirts.
Reina, having been just in the right mood for Hironori’s silly little games, blinked at the door as well and held the cover close to her. She only looked at the door for a few seconds though before she turned to hide her face against Hironori’s arm. That had been Eri, she could tell even if it had just been a small giggle and just realizing that one of the girls were home… They could be home for all she cared of course, but right now Eri was standing outside her door and she’d definitely heard their conversation. And of course seen Hironori’s pants and… “This is so not cool…”
Hironori thought he could die of embarrassment. How the hell was he supposed to walk out the door after having been overheard talking to Reina like that!? And more than that, the only pieces of clothes that were his currently in the room were his boxers and a lone sock if he remembered correctly. Possibly both socks were outside, but just a sock didn’t matter much. He still wouldn’t be able to get out before he’d sent out Reina to fetch his clothes for him and just dear GOD this was awkward. On second thoughts though, he was quite glad they’d been… interrupted now and not later. Whatever they had begun some minutes earlier surely could’ve led much further and if whoever was at the other side of the door had overheard that? Then he’d make Reina move before visiting her again. How on earth would you be able to face a person who’d overheard you having sex?! “Your friend is home…?,” he whispered in direction of his girlfriend’s ear, then hid his face in the palm of his hand. He so wanted to sink through the ground right now.
Closing her eyes in embarrassment, Reina hummed and gave a short nod in reply. This was so embarrassing. Not only because Eri – who would die by the way – had overheard them but because Hironori must think it was awful and this was her friend so she was embarrassed on Eri’s behalf too. Biting down on her lip, Reina shook her head slightly, wanting for none of this to happen, before she moved a little in the bed and glanced at the cover so she could put it over both of them again. “Sorry…,” she mumbled after a little while and then moved a little bit down so she could rest her head against Hironori’s chest. So Eri was outside but that didn’t mean that Reina would get out any time soon – rather the opposite. It would definitely take some time before she would leave… or allow Hironori to leave.
Hironori had no plans of leaving before Reina though so she didn’t need to worry. Following her advice, he also crawled back down into bed, closing his eyes and willing reality away. In dreams he could imagine it was only him and her in the apartment, no giggling friends who probably could see more or less all of his clothes spread around their living room. Really great first impression there, really great.
Outside the door Eri dragged Sayumi into the kitchen, closed the door behind them and then burst out laughing a bit louder than she’d dared before. Well, of course it was sort of embarrassing, but how they felt surely couldn’t even compare to how those two in the room felt. But yeah, their friend seemed to have gotten herself into a… heated relationship at least. “Okay, so what do we do until the love birds decide to get up for real?”
“Ne,” Reina mumbled an hour or so later as she pulled her fingers through Hironori’s hair. She knew that they probably should get up about now, but definitely not feeling like it, she figured they could just stay a little bit longer here. For some reason she felt a bit… calm actually. The embarrassment from earlier had faded away and the attitude from before that was still somewhere in the back of her head but right now she just felt really… something close to cuddly. “You know, I’m quite paranoid sometimes and when you’ll be all over there…”
“Have more confidence in yourself!,” Hironori chuckled and rubbed his thumb over her hip where his hand was resting. There wasn’t anything sexual about the touch though, he just liked to feel her soft skin and to remind her body of the current closeness between them. Sometimes after all, if you lay still for too long it was like your senses stopped registering everything around you. If it’d been there for a while, it was like the body accepted the other presence and moved on. “This past month, I didn’t even feel tempted, you know~.”
Normally Reina would say something like that it wasn’t confidence she lacked, but trust in Hironori, but right now she just couldn’t help but be honest like this. To hear that he hadn’t felt tempted even once though, that was something that definitely made her feel better. She could say the same of course. Honestly she had shared a few kisses with some of the girls but that was just random and done out of happiness after the concerts and such. Even though she had kissed them, Hironori had been the one on her mind all the time… Maybe he had done that too though? That she definitely didn’t like the sound of. “Really?,” she thus asked and tipped her head back a little bit to look up at him. “Not even once?”
Hironori could honestly shake his head at that. Of course, he had considered girls, but he’d always ended up thinking that they lacked something (most of the time attitude). They just weren’t what he so specifically wanted and he only wanted the best. Meeting Reina had made him so greedy and well, now he obviously knew why. “No… they all seemed boring in comparison to you,” he said, his inner voice yelling at him for saying something so cheesy and girly. To change that, he decided the comical approach. “I mean, they were like cute little harmless rabbits and you’re like a tiger! Rabbit or tiger, I know who’s the winner in my book at least!”
Other girls might be offended at that, but Reina only smiled in reply and nodded. She didn’t mind that – being compared to a tiger. Real tigers were scary but really cute, and considering she knew that he didn’t really think of her as scary then that was okay. Everything he said was okay, but maybe that was just Reina being in love… That was a bit weird. “You know what?”
”Mm?,” Hironori hummed in response, lifting the hand from her hips to remove a couple of strands of hair that had fallen into her face. It was a bit irritating, even though they didn’t really obscure much of his view of her and while he liked her a bit disorderly, those two had just been too random for him not to notice them specifically. Now she was back to her usual status of perfection and for a moment he let his fingers run across her lips, even though she was about to speak some more. They were so pretty though, he wanted to touch them.
Looking her boyfriend in the eyes, Reina thought over what she was about to say. It was so cheesy though and thus she was determined not to say it in a cheesy voice, but more making it sound as if it was a bad thing – which it very well could be, if Hironori ended up being a dick. Though if she was going to be honest and a bit biased s he doubted something like that would happen. “I’m so in love with you,” Reina finally said then, just like she had planned it to be, her voice didn’t sound all too happy about it. If he wasn’t completely stupid though, he would be able to tell just from looking her in the eyes that she didn’t really think of it as a bad thing.
Hironori actually laughed. He appreciated the words very much, in fact they warmed him deeply and made him feel all bubbly inside, but it was just the way she’d said it. That was just so Reina. It was hard imagining her saying it much differently. “Ouh, I quite love myself too,” he responded to that, knowing that was totally not what she wanted to hear, but he’d gladly please her later with 100% honesty, but first he just had to tease her a bit. She was so cute when a bit annoyed after all, with that pout and the angry words she’d fire back at him, possibly followed by a slap or a push or something.
At that Reina immediately frowned and with a pout added to that, she hit Hironori’s chest with her hand. “Stupid!,” she said, her voice not as low as it had been just a second ago. “That is so totally not what you’re supposed to say,” she explained as she continued to poke his chest but then stopped just so she could pull some at his hair with her other hand. Not for long though, she knew it hurt but it wasn’t as if he could say just anything he liked. This didn’t make her like him any less though, but it was totally not fair that she went out of her way to say something like that and then got something like that in return!
Continuing laughing despite the slight pain, Hironori rubbed his scalp a bit, unable to not be amused by how the rest of Reina was as fierce as her mouth. She really was unique though, which made her fun and so it was okay even if he’d get abused like this from time to time. He was a man after all so he could take it! Pushing the hair before her ear aside, he leaned forward so his lips brushed against the shell of her ear. “Love you too~,” he whispered cheerfully and kissed her hair before backing off a bit again. He really did love her, as much as one could love another after this short amount of time. She was all a man could ask for though so had he any right not to love her? Even if he’d had the right though, he knew he wouldn’t want his life any other way at the moment. Or well, he of course wanted to stay in Tokyo and get back with NEWS already, but all that felt pretty low priority right now. It wasn’t his career that was laying next to him after all, but the ever awesome and adorable Reina.
To hear that felt good in more ways than one. Not only did the words make her feel all warm inside, but having heard him say it in such a low voice like that… Reina didn’t really know why, but if there was one thing she definitely was weak for, it was whispering when being close like this. Hironori did it just right too. He did everything so right that it was, actually, quite difficult to see if he could ever do anything wrong. “Do…,” she started then, not quite sure of if she wanted to know the answer to the question she had in mind. She really wanted to know though, but at the same time… “Do you have places… to be or stuff? And when are you…” Looking down at where her hand rested against his chest, Reina blinked while waiting for him to reply. She really didn’t want to hear though, she wanted to believe that Hironori would be there forever and ever now, that he wouldn’t go anywhere but that she would be the one to decide when he was going to leave… if he would. But of course he would, she would get sick of seeing him everyday after a week or two… maybe.
Now that was one thing that Hironori didn’t want to think about. He liked just lying there and thinking they had all the time in the world, but now that he’d been reminded, he hid his face in Reina’s shoulder as if that would make him blind to the truth. “I have to go back in four days,” he reluctantly admitted after a while as he just couldn’t pretend he hadn’t gotten that question just now. “But until then, I’m not going anywhere~!” For emphasize, he pulled Reina closer and snuggled her in a rather puppy-like manner, without caring if he could be considered clingy. He simply wanted to cling onto Reina.
Reina smiled widely at that and she turned in the bed, in his arms so she lay on her stomach instead. As Hironori lifted his head then she still had that smile on her lips and she looking him in the eyes for a few seconds before she actually said anything. “I have rehearsal and stuff,” she said, “but when I don’t… I don’t think I do today… Let’s go shopping?”
Shopping was a bit risqué, but he really felt that they didn’t have the time to worry. What could happen in just four days anyway? And he wouldn’t be ashamed or feel he needed to hide. Not more than he did when walking around alone at least. “And what will we shop~?,” he asked, winking suggestively as he moved a hand up her thigh until it reached his hip. It was sexual, but not enough to make the situation turn into something more heated. Damn he wanted to though, but really, sex wasn’t happening when there was the possibility of sneaky flat mates standing outside eaves dropping.
“I don’t know,” Reina replied immediately, her smiling turning slightly suggestive at the touch. “Clothes? I love shopping clothes~ But I don’t really need a new skirt or anything considering I have new one now… in the kitchen.” Unless Eri or Sayumi had been there and borrowed it without asking, but if they knew what was best for them then they hadn’t. Biting down on her lip, suddenly feeling a bit shy again, Reina looked down at her hand again as she let her fingers run over one of Hironori’s nipples. “If we dress real good we could get something else too of course…”
“Sneaky, sneaky, Reina~!,” Hironori responded playfully, but liking it and sensing more parts of him liking the idea as well. Most of all though, he just wanted to maybe head over to his place afterwards where they could get some privacy, because he wanted her, needed her again. His blood was boiling with desire for her and it wasn’t just that he was sex-obsessed or something (he loved sex though, no denying it there), but Reina just had that effect on him. A very good affect, mind you, unless she would end up so sore she wouldn’t want to have sex for a few times. That would be bad. What was way worse though however what that he had the return to the states and so soon too. “But man, I love you sneaky~!”
It was about now that Reina started to worry, maybe she was one of those people who were addicted to sex after all? After having spoken to Hironori so many times on the phone – for various reasons but one a bit more common than the others – Reina knew his voice quite well and because of that she could easily tell what was on his mind when he had said that last sentence. That, together with how his hand rested on her… made things really easy to figure out and it was because of that she as well started to think like that. “You do?,” she asked though with a smirk as she let her hand travel down to Hironori’s stomach instead. She didn’t want to do this when she knew Eri and possibly even Sayumi were at home but… he had said he loved her sneaky, hadn’t he?
Was it normal to react this strongly to such small hints? Reina just had to use the right tone in her voice, or gently touch him in a certain way and all his blood would hurry and shoot down south. It was absolutely crazy, but he just couldn’t say he didn’t love it. “Mmm, if we continue this much further then little Hiro will think there’s a party getting started,” he commented a bit lamely, but really, Reina probably should stop if they were going to remain decent because her naked body against his so made him want to throw modesty out the window and let the whole neighborhood know they were making the best sex in the universe together.
Reina held back a laugh at that, not wanting to ruin the current mood, but that comment had been very lame. Even for Hironori it had been lame and he said quite some lame things sometimes. “Oh I know,” she answered though and moved up a little bit while her hand slowly continued down. Moving a bit closer so her face wasn’t far away from his, she kissed his on the lips once. “You can behave, can’t you?”
Hironori couldn’t help but gasp at that, because he really hadn’t expected her to continue once he’d hinted at that it maybe was time for them to stop. Now that she was steering things in the opposite direction however, he found himself unable to hold her back. Trying to not make any strange sounds, he closed his eyes and focused on the feel of her touches moving across his skin. “Have I ever told you how crazy you are?!,” he asked, his voice filled with something that was a mix of nervousness, immense pleasure and expectation.
“No, but I know,” Reina whispered in reply as she kissed him at the corner of his mouth before going further down to his neck. She didn’t plan on letting things go the whole way though, of course not, but just a little bit would be okay. Good for Hironori was that she wasn’t going to pretend she was going to make it last long either, he would probably get the hint pretty soon. It was just a little bit of… nice closeness.
More like agonizing closeness if you asked Hironori though who was feeling control slip by each and every thing that Reina did to him. It was like he was slowly going mad, but strangely enough he loved it. Maybe he was a bit M? “Good,” he huffed out as his breathing became more and more labored. How could her hands and lips know exactly where he wanted them to go, yet precisely manage to avoid the most euphoric spots so that his skin would ripple with annoyance and pleasure at the same time? Reina was just too good to be true… and now she was his.
As they heard how a door opened, Sayumi turned big eyes on Eri who was sitting in front of her by the table. “Shhh,” she instructed and looked down in her cup of tea, trying to look casual and normal but as Reina walked into the kitchen she had a really hard time keeping a small smile off of her lips.
Reina glared at her friends as she folded her arms. She knew that they could be here of course, it was their apartment as well, but that didn’t give them the right to eaves drop and… “Oi you two,” she said with a firm voice and let her eyes travel back and forth between Sayumi and Eri. She didn’t really know what she wanted of them though, what she expected them to say or do, but anything was okay as long as they didn’t sit silent there. Grinning like two idiots because that was what they were doing right now.
Eri had indeed been grinning, but then Reina opened her mouth and now she was giggling madly instead. Wow, this was all kinds of weird and hilarious at the same time. They had so many things to tease Reina about now though, which was just awesome! Whenever she thought she could bully them around (not that she really ever did), they would now have lots of things to use against her. “Good morning, sekushiii~,” Eri imitated Hironori from earlier this morning, her English of course being more than just crappy compared to his, but at least she remembered what he had actually said. Looking over at Sayumi, she hoped the other would catch on to her game of mockery. “Slept well or would you rather have stayed up aaaall night~?”
Sayumi didn’t get a chance to say anything though as Reina let out a frustrated sound and walked up to them. Pulling out a chair to sit down next to Eri, she looked at her friends’ faces for a little while before saying anything. “I’ll kill you guys,” she said in a low voice, “why did you get home?”
“Too curious~!,” Eri cheerfully revealed the funnier part of the truth, making a small face before lifting her cup to her lips, only to instantly put it down again as it was still a bit too hot and burnt her fingers slightly. The other half of the truth had been that her cell phone had run out of battery and she hadn’t brought the recharger so she’d had no choice really but go home. She wasn’t that dependant on her cell phone, but still… life in modern society was difficult without it. “You were acting all suspicious after all, asking us to go away like that~!”
Sending dark looks at both her friends, Reina sighed before she sat up straight again. “He…,” she started then and looked down at the big t-shirt she wore. It looked more like a dress on her though, a lame and pretty ugly dress but still a dress. “We’re… ,” a smile grew on Reina’s lips as she continued and there was no way that could continue to look angry now that this thought crossed her mind again. “We’re together now~”
“Eh!?,” Sayumi said immediately then, not quite sure of if this was a good or a bad thing. Good thing for Reina and Hironori of course but bad in the way that if they weren’t careful… But work came second in this, didn’t it? “Congrats!”
”Well, it would be kind of bad if you weren’t,” Eri said then, not thinking at all as she continued and that way accidently giving away that they had not only eaves dropped, but also sneaked a peek at the pair while they had still been sleeping. “With the way you were laying and cuddling in there with underwear on the floor, it wouldn’t be very decent to not be dating.”
“Eri!,” Sayumi exclaimed but didn’t get to say much more than that before Reina said the eldest’s name as well. Normally the three of them shared all kinds of secrets and with them being close this probably wasn’t a big deal but right now Reina seemed to take everything very seriously. Probably, tonight or maybe tomorrow depending on if Reina would sleep here tonight, they would be giggling together over things Reina told them. “You guys this isn’t fun!,” Reina whined as she pushed some at Eri just because she was closer then Sayumi. “It’s… he… we…. Don’t do that!”
”Mhm, yeah right!,” Eri responded shamelessly and rolled her eyes. She was about to say that that was as believable as that she would drink mayonnaise through her nostrils for breakfast every morning, but right then the door creaked a little, making all three female heads turn around.
Sleepy and a bit embarrassed, Hironori entered the kitchen with his head lowered, now fully dressed again in the same t-shirt as yesterday and the pants Reina had borrowed last time. They were almost too tight around the waist, but the model was generally loose fit, so they sat pretty comfortably on anyway. “Morning…,” he muttered shyly and a bit awkwardly walked up to stand behind Reina. Wow, this was so much weird that it was almost a bit choking. A part of him wanted to leave the room, but he stayed for the very simple reason that the hallway had no Reina.
“Good morning!,” Reina chirped immediately, suddenly in a much better mood than before and turned her head to look up at him. He was so cute when his hair was a bit messy… he needed to have that more often. Maybe it wasn’t the best thing to go out with though. “This is Sayumi and Eri,” she explained and nodded towards the girls before looking up at him again. “This is Hirori~”
“Hello,” Sayumi greeted with a smile, feeling a little bit embarrassed by how things were, but didn’t say anything about it as that would be a bit stupid. Instead she just looked at Eri, waiting for her to say something.
“Ah, hello, hello!,” she greeted and smiled widely to not show how she was actually feeling very awkward and embarrassed now that the guy had come out to talk to them. It wasn’t that very often they had guys around and when it happened they usually got to greet the person before seeing him in bed with any of the others and finding his clothes spread out all over the apartment…
Nodding at the other two girls, Hironori felt like he wanted to sink through the ground. This was probably topping his list of awkward moments he’d suffered in his life. In search for comfort he put a hand on Reina’s shoulder and gave it a squeeze. Then he realized there was another chair and so reluctantly sat down. It’d been one thing if it’d been the seat next to Reina, but it was the one across from her and next to Sayumi and so it wasn’t as pleasant as it could be. He let his eyes rest on his girlfriend though, trying to make himself relax with the familiarity in her face. “Ah, sorry for intruding…,” he remembered to say when the silence began to stretch out.
“What are you saying!?,” came Reina’s reply then before Sayumi or Eri had had a chance to say anything. “You’re not sorry for anything~” And she knew this very well. She wouldn’t be so mean to actually say something like that though, she knew very well that Hironori most likely would kill her if she did. But just the thought of that was enough to make her happy – she knew very, very well that Hironori was anything but sorry for coming here.
“It’s okay, it’s okay!,” Sayumi replied then and shook her head a little bit as to further make the guy realize that everything was super okay. Even if she didn’t think so she would say so for Reina’s sake. Now it was just a nice coincidence that she didn’t mind Hironori being here.
“Ah you know what!?,” Reina said then, figuring she’d do Hironori a favor and make him less embarrassed by embarrass her friend instead. “Sayumi here, she’s dating someone from Johnny’s~,” she started and cast a quick glance at her friend who instantly hid her face in her hands. “Guess who!”
Eyes widening a bit in surprise as that was more than he knew, Hironori looked back and forth between Reina and Sayumi for a bit. He really had no idea who to pair up Sayumi with though. Maybe a junior? Someone from MAD? “I have no idea…,” he ended up saying, tipping his head to the side and then cocking his head a few times as he tried to come up with some face he could imagine next to the girl. He really was clueless though. “No… can’t guess… is it a junior or debuted Johnny…?” Next to Reina Eri sat grinning in a way that was really unnerving. And people had called him strange.
“It’s someone you definitely can… actually picture her with but it’s kinda difficult. He’s debuted,” Reina continued, liking the way Sayumi was acting right now because that meant she was doing both Hironori and Sayumi a favor. She was making Hironori less embarrassed and Sayumi really loved to talk about her and Koki, it was just now in the beginning before it was out, so to speak, that she really didn’t like being present.
“Come on Reina, shut up,” Sayumi whined while looking at her friend before looking down again and nervously start fixing with her hair. It looked normal and perfect really so it didn’t need fixing but for now that didn’t matter, right now she just had to do something to save herself from embarrassment.
Eeh, debuted huh? Now that was hard. He knew all the names of course, but he knew a lot of them too and hadn’t heard anything so it made it a bit difficult. A lot of wheels started spinning in his head, thinking that maybe someone was hiding something? Hey!Say!JUMP were too young at least, so he thought it was pretty safe to exclude them unless Sayumi liked them younger… but he didn’t think so. “…not NEWS, right?,” he asked after a while, making a face of disbelief.
“Nope, not them!,” Eri chirped in then, folding her arms on the table as she wiggled some on her chair. “I could give you some hints if you like! There is one that would really give it away, but I could say it in a way that makes it harder to figure out so you really will have to think a bit!” Looking over at Reina, she tried to figure if the other girl approved of her giving such a hint.
Sayumi, knowing very well that there was no way Hironori would not find out, sighed as he looked at her friends. “Just say it already,” she mumbled, not thinking about how she could say it herself. But somehow she didn’t want to, it was a bit embarrassing… despite not being ashamed over dating or anything it was still awkward… if only she was like Reina who didn’t have any problems at all when it came to things like this.
“He often wear hats!,” Reina suggested, knowing that didn’t help much at all. After all, Kazuya wore hats a lot but Jin even more, if she wasn’t mistaken. Ryo wore them a lot too and Koki of course but add to that the very many guys within Johnny’s that wore hats, then this hint didn’t really help. “Guess, suggest someone~”
Hats, hats, hats. All of Japan had a hat-frenzy lately! There was one group who seemed to excel in that area though, at least within Johnny’s. “KAT-TUN?,” he asked, soon enough getting in confirmed in a nod from Reina. He then pondered some further, quickly excluding Jin and Kazuya, knowing they were tied up with other partners. The other four, he wasn’t so sure of their social status actually… Looking up at his girlfriend again, he noted Eri was doing something odd once more and looking more carefully, he could see her rubbing her head and making other weird gestures until he finally got it. “Eh, Koki?!”
“Koki!,” Reina repeated and grinned at how Sayumi was now hiding her face again. “Because of me! I feel so good about it really! Matchmaker Reina! It was a really awkward first date though, apparently, but now it’s been two… or something months! I mean, isn’t that awesome!? I mean… Koki!” Honestly Reina loved that her friend and her other friend (ish, they weren’t super close after all) were dating. They seemed so happy about it too. They didn’t meet very often she’d noticed, but Sayumi didn’t spend all nights at this apartment. Probably some of them she spent at her sister’s or at her parents’ but both Reina and Eri were positive to that half of those nights Sayumi were gone, she was at Koki’s.
“…you make it sound like he’s really awesome…,” Hironori said to that, crossing his arms and sulking in a manner that Reina had… well, not seen so much, but heard a lot of lately. He usually didn’t show this side of him to people he barely knew though, but feeling more relaxed and focusing more on Reina, he almost forgot the presence of the other’s in the room. Now he only waited for Reina to tell him that he was of course more special than Koki, because he was THE Hironori and all and the one at least Reina should find the most awesome of all. If Sayumi preferred to think of Koki as the most awesome though, Hironori would be fine with that, but she also had a reason to think so. Reina didn’t, rather quite the opposite.
“Koki is really awesome,” Reina confirmed then, nodding a little and getting a humming in agreement from Sayumi. Then she smiled and kicked playfully at Hironori’s legs under the table as she leaned forward and stretched out both her arms over the table so he’d take her hands. “But Hirori is more awesome and the kind of awesome that I want,” she continued, not at all minding to be like this in front of Eri and Sayumi. The three of them had seen each other in all kinds of mood so this wasn’t something she was afraid of showing. Maybe they’d find it awkward though but that wasn’t her problem!
“Mmm, that’s more like it~!” Hironori said, trying to suppress his grin and failing as he took her hands, playing a little with her fingers. Proudly he lifted his chin a bit as he confidently looked her in the eyes, sending her a wink that only she would understand. Not that they knew each other’s body language all that well yet, but she probably had yesterday fresh in her memory too. It’d take ages for him to forget at least, their first night as a couple. He doubted he’d ever forget it actually. Somehow it had been even more magical than their first and now that had been mind-blowing.
