The following week, Aiko and I were headed to Tokyo. I was a wreck the night before. It was already past 1AM and I still had not completely packed. Every time I seemed to be "packed" I would remember something and redo the packing all over again. By the time I had finished, it was already 4AM.

All the time we were traveling to Tokyo I was uneasy. I kept fidgeting in my seat.

"Riya stop moving! You're becoming really annoying." Aiko complained.

"Sorry! It's just that I can't believe my luck. I'm on my way to Tokyo to watch a Hell's Angels concert. How cool is that?"

"Yeah I know! Just don't forget what I told you before. Take it slow. You don't know what lies ahead."

"Yeah.. yeah.. I get it. He's an CELEBRITY. I'm a NOBODY." I replied sarcastically.

"That's not what I meant. I just want you to take it slow and weigh the odds ok?"

"You sound like an old maid. No wonder you have no boyfriend." I retorted.

"Oh shut up. Go to sleep. Your eyebags are showing." Ai said as she hit me with the book she was holding.

The trip to Tokyo became the turning point of my life. The concert was superb as usual. The guys even invited Aiko and I for a dinner after the show. Although Satoshi may have not said a lot during that time, being with him just made my day. I would usually catch him staring and when I ask him what he wanted, he'd just shake his head and say nothing. Right there and then I decided I wanted to stay in Japan.

I was a bit depressed when we returned to Yokohama three days after. Aiko could not be away from the office for a long time, so even if I wanted to stay in Tokyo, I had no choice but go back to Yokohama.

I began officially working for Aiko's company after we got back from Tokyo. Ai ko had to rush the arrangement of my p

I did not go here just so you could play games with me. Come on. I still have another conference tomorrow." I said trying to sound annoyed.

"Well it's not easy!" he retorted.

"What? What is not easy?" I asked.

"Asking you to marry me. There I said it." He answered.

I was too stunned with what I heard that I was catatonic for almost 3 minutes.

"Say something. Please…." He pleaded.

"What do you want me to say?" I asked.

"Anything… Something good I hope." He replied.

I breathed deeply three times before I could muster enough courage to ask him.

"Why?" I asked.

"What do you mean?" he returned the question.

"Why? Why are you doing this? Why are you asking me to marry you? Why me? Why now? WHY?"

"I don't know." He replied softly.

"That's not the answer I want to hear." I said

"Then what do you want to hear?" He asked.

"Something worth believing. Something real. Something that would want me to say yes..."

"Riya…"

"Something for me to hold on to…"

"Riya… I promise…" he began.

"Don't!" I cut him off

"Don't what?" he asked

"Don't promise." I answered.

"Why?"

"Coz promises are meant to be broken." I said softly.
