Satoshi's POV

It has been over a week since Yokohama and I was still at a loss whether to call her or not. I was sitting in our dressing room, staring at the painting I made while holding my cellphone, confused on what to do.

"Satoshi, the painting's gonna melt in 3 seconds if you continue to stare at it." Jirou remarked.

"Huh?" I did not realize that he has been watching me the whole time.

"I know you want to call her but why are you hesitating?" he asked again as he sat beside me and joined me in staring at the painting.

"I don't know what to say." I replied.

"Well why don't you tell her you want to show her the painting. She wanted to see it right?" Jirou advised.

"Am I hearing this right? Jirou Nishimura giving Satoshi advice on girls." Kenji said as he entered the dressing room.

"What's that supposed to mean?" Jirou asked.

"Nothing." Kenji answered smirking.

"Anyway, going back to Satoshi's dilemma, I still think you should give her a call." Jirou said.

"I hate to say this but I agree with Jirou. Instead of sulking and wondering about the possibilities, why don't you pick up the phone, dial her number and talk to her. You know you've actually been spacing out most of time the past week. Not that you don't space out often but it got worst and it's getting creepy." Kenji said as he sat on the other side of the couch, joining both Jirou and I as we stared at the painting.

"I told you, I don't know what to say plus I'm not sure if she wants to talk to me. There's also the question if she's still here in Japan." I said.

"Well you'll never know unless you dial her number and talk to her." Kenji said handing me my cellphone.

" But… but…but…"

" No buts Satoshi. We've had enough. If you're thinking that we aren't affected with what ever it is that's bothering you, then you're wrong. We are more than affected, First, you're getting sloppy with the lyrics, second, you space out more than usual and lastly, I get annoyed with your endless sighs while you stare at that painting." Kenji scolded.

I turned to Jirou as if asking him to help me but he just shrugged his shoulders.

"Alright! I guess I have to do this.' I said as I dialed and waited for the other line to ring.

Riya's POV

" Riya… Riya… RIYA!!!"


"Snap out of it! You have been blankly staring into space for the last 10 minutes with that silly grin painted on your face. What's wrong with you?" Ai asked as we were sitting on the bench waiting for the bus.

"Nothing. I just remembered something." I lied.

" Don't give me that crap. You're day dreaming again aren't you?"

"No. I told you I just remembered something." I replied guiltily.

"Yeah right. Come on Riya you've been like that for almost a week. Snap out of it. You only got 2 weeks left. I think it's time you enjoy Japan rather than daydreaming while holding that necklace or staring at your camera."

"Don't worry Aiko, I'm enjoying Japan more than you can imagine." I replied as the bus came to stop in front of us and we started to board.

"Riya, that is beside the point. You

t to mention shaking uncontrollably.

"Riya... breathe. If you don't you're gonna collapse any minute." Aiko remarked trying to hold the laughter.

We were nearing the front door when someone tapped my shoulder from behind.

I anxiously turned around to see who it was.

"Hi! It's been a while." The guy who has been the subject of my millions of daydreams said as he bowed. Beside him stood, Kenji who had the look that was between, amusement and disbelief.

Lunch was a bit relaxed. It felt as if we knew one another for quite sometime. Although conversing with them was a little bit tough for me since Aiko had to translate it. I was able to grasp a few words and phrases from their answers. Thanks to that rush Japanese course I took before leaving. We were in the middle of deciding what dessert to eat when Kenji asked.

"Riya, how long are you going to stay here in Japan?"

I almost choked on the juice I was drinking.

"Yes Riya, how long do you INTEND to stay?" Aiko repeated the question. This time with emphasis as if letting me remember our conversation earlier that morning.

"Ahhmmm, well… I… I'm still thinking about it." I awkwardly replied.

"I see… Coz if your staying long, Satoshi was wondering if you would like to come to Tokyo and watch our concert." Kenji asked while sheepishly looking at Satoshi

"Of course she'd like to come and watch your concert. When is that?" Ai answered for me since I was too shocked to answer.

"It's next week. If you guys could come, give us a call and we'll give you your tickets. Ok?"

It looked really strange that both Aiko and Kenji were talking in our behalf since Satoshi looked too shy to talk while I was still in a state of shock.

"Ok so it settled. We'll see you next week. So what do you guys want for dessert?" Kenji asked while browsing the menu.

"Chocolate." I quickly replied.

"Riya… I thought you…" Ai, asked

"Screw the allergies! I'm just so happy right now that I need to eat chocolate. Just don't forget to bring me to the hospital if I get worse." I replied.
