"Ummm…for forgiving Akihito easily? For not punishing him?"

"Not only that." He has a deep burrow on his forehead, as if he was reprimanding a little child.

"I made him my bodyguard?" She stated, or more like asked. She could not think of more reasons for his annoyance.

"What else?"

"What else…" she repeated his question, thinking of something to add, slightly lowering her gaze in deep thought.

He pinched her chin again towards him.

"You said that what he did to you was just a trivial matter. He touched you and almost raped you, are those trivial matters for you? On top of that, you just assigned him as your bodyguard 24 hours a day. Do you plan to live together with him from now on? What does that make me? Am I just a decoration?"

His barrage of questions left her speechless. Yet, she was more stupefied when she finally realized the real reason for his irritation.

He is jealous!

He is jealous of Akihito, but he is not aware of it.

She almost laughed upon the realization yet, she suppressed it. Looking at the glint of ire in Ken's lovely eyes, she noticed that he himself has not even realized that what he is feeling at the moment is not anger, but jealousy.

He was jealous that another man has touched her. He was jealous that Akihito has just replaced his old post as her bodyguard.

"Come on, speak up. Cat got your tongue now?" He said, still pinching her chin.

He still has the deep frown on his forehead, and she could not help but wonder how come he hasn't recognized his own feelings yet.

'Slow but surely.' She smiled, and when she did, Ken was quite taken aback.

She hooked her arms over his nape and pulled him closer to her until their foreheads touched.

Then she tilted her head more and gave him a kiss on his nose.

A hint of uncertainty crossed his face.

"Ken, I'm sorry, ok? Of course I hated him for touching me. I remember that I am yours, and I should never have allowed anybody to touch me. But come to think of it, his action has prompted you to ask me to be your…girlfriend, right? For that, I am thankful to Akihito. If he didn't do that, I wonder if you ever came back to me."

It seemed that her words penetrated his thick skull, for the crease on his forehead had ceased.

"But why did you assign him as your bodyguard? Don't you have trust in my ability to protect you?"

She bit her upper lip a little because she felt that her throat was suddenly dry. Their position was making her painfully aware that they are intimately close, and the warmth on his body was vibrating through her.

"Of course, I do. It's just…" Kana glanced around, the signal on her eyes told him to be vigilant for other people's presence. When he nodded gently, she continued to speak with a very faint voice

of his expression told Kana that Akihito is just nearby.


It was finally the time for the celebration. As expected, the whole training ground which has an area of more than 2 acres looked small with the number of people present. It looked like a national festival is on-going, and Kana could not help but exclaim in surprise at the crowd.

"Wow!" She said, roaming her eyes on the lively surroundings.

Everywhere she looked, she saw people with smiling faces. Some of them were wearing their traditional kimono clothes, while the others have the modernized hakama and many were also at their modern casual clothing.

Innumerable Chinese lanterns can be found lighting the venue and some food stalls were even lined up in place. It was indeed a festival, but only for the Yamada clan.

Kana was overwhelmed with the numerous people, and she has a rough estimate that there could be at least a thousand people who are gathered tonight.

She smiled when she saw some children walking and running and playing together. She was also wearing a kimono, as the female staff insisted that Master Hideo commanded her to be dressed appropriately for the occasion.

In contrast, Ken was in his usual attire. Black jeans, gray sneakers, and a hooded navy-blue sweatshirt. He even placed the hood over his head, obviously not pleased with the unsolicited attention he was getting from the majority of the female population.

She smiled proudly as she glanced at her fingers which are interlaced firmly with his.

'He is mine, pitiful girls. Drool all you want but he is mine only.'

She even glared at several females along the way when she noticed them openly devouring Ken with the way they stared at him. She shook her head to herself as she realized one thing.

It is quite troublesome to have such a handsome freak as your boyfriend.
