I was about to ask one more time how he knew that when…

"Don't ask how he knows that ok? If you do, it might trigger another one of your frightening reactions." Hiro said as he reached for the plate of spaghetti.

The five of us ate our dinner silently with me having quick glances of the guys from time to time. Then out of the blue Kenji asked.

"Riya… Why did you go to Chicago?"

" Huh? Oh that… well, my mom, who lives in Chicago with my brother, has been bugging me ever since they got there to follow but I never really wanted to go there. I wanted to stay in Manila." I answered.

" So you went there because your mom wanted you to?" he asked again.

"Yes… but at that time I felt that I wanted to go. For some reason I wanted to leave Manila." I said while reaching for the plate of spaghetti.

"Why did you want to leave Manila?" This time it was Rohan who asked.

" I wasn't really sure that time. I just I wanted to get away."

"Do you have a boyfriend during that time?" Rohan asked again.

"The time I left for Chicago? Well I did, but I broke up with him before I left for Chicago."

"What about now? Do you have a boyfriend?" Hiro asked as he took a mouthful of spaghetti.

The sound of the fork hitting the plate stopped me from answering his question.

"Sorry. It slipped." Shinichi's dad apologized.

"So Riya do you have one?" Hiro repeated the question.

"I do. He's a doctor. We work in the same hospital. We're planning to get married next year. He was the one I wanted to call earlier but then I realized he would just give me a sermon about being too trusting and not using my common sense so I called Jaja instead." I answered.

"Excuse me." Shinichi's dad said a he stood up, took his plate and headed towards the kitchen.

"That's not possible!" Hiro exclaimed.

"What is not possible?" I curiously asked him.

"You marrying that doctor. That's not possible. It's not right." Hiro was now standing and leaning over the table towards me.

"Why not?" I asked.

"You're married already. You're married to…"

"Stop it! I don't know what's going on with you but my marrying Kyle is not a concern for neither one of you." I was beginning to become pissed.

"Hiro… give it a rest. Riya… sorry…" Kenji said a he pulled Hiro down to his seat.

Rohan silently stood up and proceeded to the kitchen.

"Are you ok?" he asked Shinichi's dad.

"Yes. I'm fine." He said as he gave Rohan a smile.

"No, you're not fine. Do you want to go out for a walk?"

"No I'm ok. Don't worry." He replied as he began to wash the dishes.

"We've been together as a group for quite sometime now not to mention inseparable since middle school and I think I would know if you're alright or not. Come on let's go for a walk. You need it." He said as he dragged him out of the kitchen.

"Hey where are you going?" Hiro asked when he saw the two heading for the door.

"Out for a smoke." Rohan answered.

"Can I come? I haven't had one since I landed I really need it." I said as I stoo

eaded?" I asked as I sat on the edge of the bed.

"Okinawa. I promised Shin I would bring him there during our day off." He said as he rummaged through Shinichi's closet.

"I see. Sorry I ruined your trip." I apologized.

"It's no big deal." He answered as he tried to dress the sleeping Shinichi in pajamas.

"Here, let me do it." I volunteered.

" It's ok."

" No let me. I'm an expert at this. This is what I do." I bragged smiling.

He handed me the pajama and watched as I swiftly dressed Shinichi without waking him up.

'You're good at this. When I do that he usually wakes up before I can get his other leg through. I end up pacifying him all night." He said

"I told you I'm good at this. I work in the pediatric ward and keeping the kids asleep while changing their clothes has become my expertise."

"So you work in a hospital? I thought you never liked working there." He asked as he sat on the other side of the bed.

"Yeah. I still don't though but it's the kids I can't resist. No matter how tired I get, just one smile from those kids I care for is enough." I said.

"This picture's really cute." I said holding a framed picture of Shinichi and his dad on a boat. The names of Shinichi and his dad including a date were hand painted on the sides of the frame.

"You think so? That was taken 6 months ago. We went to Shinijikemi. I gave him that trip as a gift for being number one in his class."

"That's sweet." I said as I yawned.

"You're sleepy. I think you better go to bed. You can sleep in our… I mean my room. I'll just sleep in the couch."

"Ahhmmm… is it ok if I sleep beside Shinichi?"

" Huh?... Ah… ok..."

"Thanks." I said as I climbed onto the bed and snuggled beside Shinichi.

"Oyasumi." He said as he walked out of the room and closed the door.

"Night." I replied.

Shinichi's dad POV

Still facing the closed door, I muttered

"I was stupid to let you go before. I won't make the same mistake twice." Before finally heading towards my own room.
