Two other men were surprised at what happened and when they ran towards him, Ken moved as fast as the wind. Using his right foot, he kicked the first man in the abdomen, and while turning, his right hand fell on the other man's nape, knocking him unconscious. He then lunged forward to the man that he kicked, took his gun and pointed it on his head.

He did not wait for the man to say anything, because they are not thieves, they are suicide terrorists. Using the back of the gun, he knocked the man unconscious as well.

He then looked at Kana, who was just calmly sitting on her chair, obviously has no intention of helping him. Not that he needed any help anyway.

The other passengers were all in awe at what just happened in front of their eyes, too fast. The three men with guns were knocked unconscious by just one man, a blue-eyed gorgeous man.

Ken put one finger over his lips, silently telling the crowd not to make any sound. He then made his way towards the cockpit. Suddenly, the plane began to move violently. It didn't take too long before he realized that they are going down. As he met Kana's eyes, she gave him a nod. He noticed the hint of fear on her eyes.

He grunted.

They are crashing down to the ocean.

When Ken reached the cockpit, he noticed three men there, the pilot and co-pilot, and one terrorist. They were all dead. With a curse, he took over the pilot's chair, and tried to maneuver the giant aircraft as near as possible to the shore.

He knew that Kana must be advising all the passengers now to wear a life vest.

He never drove an aircraft in person, all he ever did was just simulation.


He punched on the control buttons, for he knew that it has been set to go down. Yet, he did all he could to lighten the fall. And again, the last image on his mind before everything went blank was Yuki's smiling face.


Ken opened his eyes, which felt like ages since he did. He felt like his eyelashes were stuck on his lower lid and had to blink several times before he could clearly make out the place where he is at the moment.

He was lying on the hospital bed, and when he tried to move, he realized that he couldn't. His feet felt heavy, his hands were numb, and he could feel some pain all over his body.

He groaned inwardly.

The pain that he's feeling meant that he's still alive.

That means that they were somehow lucky. He wondered how many passengers of the airplane were alive, and how many were…not lucky like them.


He glanced around the room, which was covered in white from floor to ceiling. The curtain was drawn and he saw Kana's face.

She has a smile on her face as she walked towards him, a nurse following her behind.

"Welcome back to the world of the living, dear brother, " Kana said in her childlike voice, and the nurse, with obvious admiration on him, did her job quickly by checking his vitals.

"How long have I been here, " Ken asked.

Kana sat on one chair next to his bed. He noticed some bruises on her arms and face.

It's good that she wasn't too much hurt, he thought. It would be a failure for him if his underling was hurt under his presence.

"Forty-three hours and…" she looked at her watch, "18 minutes to be exact, " she said, and glared at the nurse who just couldn't help but stare openly at Ken.

The nurse said sorry and went out of the room hastily.

Ken did not mind her at all, for he was so used to females gawking at him as if he is a piece of fresh meat ready to be eaten.

Well, he could be…a poisoned


Kana shook her head.

"I pity all those girls, for having to see such a handsome man and not being noticed in the slightest." She added a hint of mischief in her voice as she crossed her arms over her chest.

Ken pretended not to hear her.

"How long do I have to stay here?" he asked, "I want to get out of the hospital as soon as possible."

Kana frowned.

"According to the doctor, you have to stay here for at least a week." She answered.

Ken has a disappointed look on his face, but he did not say anything.

"Don't worry, I made the report." When he still did not reply, she cleared her throat. "Thanks for saving all of us, nobody died in the crash, except for those three in the cockpit along with you. The three men were all put in jail as well."

Ken's eyes flicked momentarily in gratitude. He could be an assassin, but he had never taken an innocent life even once. He could not even kill a cat.

After a few minutes of silence, Kana began to peel an apple. Ken kept his face turned on the other side. The only part of his body he could move for now is from his neck and above.

"Come on, brother. I have peeled an apple for you, why don't you have some?" Kana said in her playful voice.

Ken looked at her with indifference, and opened his mouth.

She fed him the apples, one by one, in silence. She suppressed her laughter, for she knew that the reason why he was obliging to her is that because he could not do anything in his condition. He could not even lift a finger.

The scowl on his face was so cute that Kana found herself staring at him intently.

"Kana, wipe that silly drool on your mouth, before it fall on me." Ken said coldly, and she giggled. Yet, she unconsciously wiped her mouth, knowing that he was just making fun of her.

Ken knew what she feels for him. For she never wasted any time on telling it to him directly.

She confessed to him two months ago. She could still remember it too well.


They were just given their assignment to investigate Mayor Yamaguchi along with his alleged corruption. On their way back from the meeting place, she asked him if they could talk.

"What is it you want to talk about?" He asked, obviously impatient for it was already night time.

Kana looked at him in his eyes, making sure that she was establishing an eye contact.

"Ken, I want to tell you…that I love you."

There, she said it, finally.

After spending many months contemplating on her real feelings about him, she finally realized that she loves him. And it would be better if he knows how she feels, so she will also know how he feels about her.

Ken's gaze never wavered for one bit.

"How do you want me to answer that?" He asked, putting his hands on his pockets.

"Truthfully, " she responded, crossing her fingers behind her back, but keeping her eyes straight towards him.

"Well, I don't feel the same towards you." Was his straight answer.

She was expecting it, but still, it hurts more to hear it coming straight from him. She felt like her heart was torn into pieces.

But she's not a weakling, she is now 20 years old, almost 21. She is an adult and her feelings won't be swayed by his cold rejection.

"I can feel that, but I want to tell you too that I won't give up. I will wait until you fall in love with me." She said in a defiant manner.

Ken's lips twitched sexily, and he took a step towards her, laced with sensual menace. Her feet almost moved backwards but before they did, she held her ground firmly, meeting his eyes equally.
