Riya's POV

I was smiling like an idiot as I skipped towards the hotel lobby.

Who would have thought that my first time here in Japan would be my most memorable trip ever. I got to meet the guy I had been fantasizing for the last 6 months not to mention he wants to see me AGAIN!

I was still on cloud nine as I finished packing my things. I could not get myself to sleep. I was trying to relive the last few hours. I got my camera out and began to stare at their picture again. I was in that position when the phone rang.

"Miss Riya, there 's an Aiko Fujimoto for you on the other line. Would you accept the call?" the operator asked.

" Ok. I'll take the call." I replied.

"Riya? Are you packed? Wee will be arriving at your hotel in 10 minutes." Aiko said.

"Huh? Wait what time is it?" I asked.

"I'ts past 10 am." She replied.

"WHAT?" I screamed as I glanced at the wall clock. The long arm was somewhere between two and one and the short hand was pointing at ten.

That's not possible. Does this mean I have not closed my eyes and gone to sleep since the guys brought me home last night? This is bad.

"Riya…? Are you still there?" Ai asked from the other end.

"Sorry. Yup still here. I'll be waiting in the lobby. Ten minutes?" I said.

"Yup 10 minutes. We're leaving now. Bye. See you later." Aiko said before hanging up.

It was nearly 10:30 when Aiko and her driver arrived. After checking out, we decided to have an early lunch.

"So what do you want to eat? We can try the yakiniku restaurant around the corner? Mom went out with her friends so there's nothing to eat at home right now." Ai said as helped me load my bags at the back of their car.

"That would be fine. Well I can eat anything right now." I replied smiling.

"You know what there's something different. You're too perky. How many cups of coffee did you have?" She asked.

"I'm caffeine free for today."

"So what's with that stupid smile painted on your face?"

"This!" I relied as I shoved the camera in front of her eyes.

"Where did you get this?" she asked.

I told her the entire story complete with actions and some side co

to leave now. I bet those two are already contemplating of dragging us out of here." Jirou said.

"Jirou wait." I said as I grabbed Jirou's arm who was already preparing to leave.


"Tell her to keep in touch."I said.

Jirou relayed the message and the three of us started to head out of the door. I took one last glance at Riya. She was holding on to the paper bag and she was smiling. I silently wished that it would not be the last time I see that smile.

Riya's POV

I was tightly holding on to the paper bag that contained Satoshi's gift. I could not wait to open it that the moment Aiko informed me that they were out of the restaurant I opened the small paper bag.

Inside was a small box with a letter folded on top of it.

I opened the box and inside was a silver necklace. I took it out and on it hang a cherry blossom pendant. I handed the necklace to Aiko who examined it excitedly. I unfolded the note that came along with it. It was in Japanese. I shoved the paper to Aiko and demanded that she translate what was written on it.

Riya, It never crossed my mind that I would one day get to like the cherry blossoms. Seeing them fall usually means that vacation is over. But watching you wait for them to fall has made me realize something. It made me realize that they fall to signal the start of something different. Something new.

Someday, I would love to watch them fall with you.
