Caught up in the Middle
Chapter 4: Versus
It did not sink in at first that Aya ran away from him like that. All Rei did was to gaze at the black-haired girl from a distance. Well, it was always like that to begin with.
He actually did not like the idea of doing nothing.
The brown-haired lad knew where to find her. He will find her.
"Aya-chan, would you like a ride on the bump car?" The blonde asked, slightly panting. They were enjoying rollercoaster for a couple of minutes and they were tired of the re-rides.
The black-haired girl laughed lightly. "Yuuya-kun, let's just have some light ride. The Ferris wheel, perhaps?" She smiled at him. Yuuya blushed. Good, we're having some time alone. He thought.
On the other hand, Aya was really comforted with their theme park date. Yuuya was a real talker, and a funny one. He never failed to make Aya smile. She can confidently say that she liked him a lot. And for a while, she forgot about Rei. Oh, I thought of him again…
They were about to fall in line on the Ferris wheel ride when a hand tapped Aya's shoulder.
The black-haired girl turned around to see who stopped her from going further.
"O-Otohata-kun!" Aya gasped. Never did she think that she'd see Rei, of all places, the theme park. Yuuya frowned when he saw his best friend.
"I didn't know you'd go overboard Rei." Yuuya said in a rather light tone than a sarcastic one, and continued. "Interrupting our date."
Rei blatantly ignored Yuuya. He grabbed Aya by the hand. The ever confused girl gasped.
"Aya, let's go."
"She's not going anywhere." Yuuya grabbed Aya's other hand, which made the latter surprised more. Realizing the situation, Rei let go of Aya's hand and turned to the blonde.
"You don't know when to stop, do you?" The brown-haired man said.
Yuuya let go of Aya's hand as well. All she did was to stare at the two who were already shooting I-will-not-let-you-win glares at each other.
Rei continued. "You don't know your position."
"On the other hand, do you know yours?" Yuuya asked casually.
"Would you mind telling me?"
There was silence. Aya just bowed her head, thinking of what to say to the two.
Rei tapped his left foot impatiently. "Well?"
"You're the ex-boyfriend. And now I'm taking my chance." Yuuya bravely told him.
Rei laughed at the comment. Yuuya frowned. "We never broke up. So don't call me the ex."
"But you broke her heart. How's that?" Yuuya said, shifting her gaze to Aya, who was apparently surprised with what he just said.
Rei didn't expect that answer from his best friend. He narrowed his eyes. "We all have our time, and now is mine to change. So don't ruin it."
Yuuya's eyebrows creased. Come to think of it, he was the intruder. But it's not anyone's fault that he fell in love with Aya. He was seriously running out of words. Yuuya was not the "quarreling" type of person. Rei read the expression on his face, and smiled.
"Aya, let's go." He grabbed her hand. But he felt her pull back.
Aya did not want to go with him.
"Stop this, Otohata-kun. Don't…play with me. And don't play with your best friend's feelings either…" Aya said, looking into his eyes. I-I said all of those in front of Rei? She was surprised herself.
The brown-haired lad was surprised. But he immediately got back his composure. "What's the meaning of this?"
Aya was quiet, still looking at Rei. Yuuya looked at her.
"You're going to leave me for Yuuya?"
"Rei, quit already." Yuuya said in a worried tone.
"I can do that." Aya firmly expressed herself, but inside she was trembling.
Rei looked intently at Aya. He narrowed his eyes. She is serious. He was sure of that thought.
He finally let go of her hand.
"This doesn't mean you win, Asuo." Rei said, turning his back on them, ready to walk away.
"I'll take you on, Otohata." Yuuya responded confidently.
Rei said in a low tone. "Make sure you…take her home safely."
"I will," was Yuuya's only reply to Rei.
Aya gasped. Despite everything, Rei still cared. And it was clear that he didn't play with her feelings, or Yuuya's feelings for that matter. Did she take Rei wrongly?
Rei was just being himself, saying what he truly wanted.
And the always first Otohata Rei walked away from them with sadness and a heavy heart, leaving Aya and Yuuya in deep musing.
So how was it? I want to know what you think, please leave a review. THANK YOU!
It's nearing to the end, so don't go anywhere! :D
