Kirisawa, I mean, Mikagami Fuuko's diary entry on the night before her 5th wedding anniversary…
Who would have thought that I, the tomboyish Kirisawa Fuuko, will actually get married? And of all the men in the world, I married him…the resident ice block of Hokage…Mikagami Tokiya.
After one year of happy relationship plus constant bickering, he proposed to me. At first, I thought he was just joking. But knowing him, he was serious about asking me. I was hesitant, knowing that it's been only a year since we started our relationship.
"Mi-chan…" My eyes were still fixed on the beautiful diamond engagement ring.
"What? Are you gonna marry me or what?" He asked. It's obvious that he's tired of waiting for my answer. "Just simply tell me yes or no."
"Are you sure? Maybe you're just surprised…" Of course, I wanted to marry him. It was something I've always wished for ever since I realized that I love him. Afraid? Yes. I was afraid that one day, he'll tell me that he no longer loves me and he'll leave me and then he'll marry another woman. I just want to make sure. I want him to be sure that it was me that Tokiya wanted to marry.
He held my hand, squeezed it then he smiled at me "I would not ask you this if I am not sure, right? Fuuko, we've been through a lot…all I wanted now is to spend the rest of my life with you. Now, tell me, will you marry me or not? Because I'm gonna give this to someone else."
Without second thought, I quickly answered yes. He teased me that I only told him yes because I was afraid that he'll actually give it to someone else should I reject his proposal. I shook my head. "I wouldn't say yes if I am not sure, right?" I just returned to him what he asked me before. I hugged him tight. That day, I was so happy…and until now, I am happy. I am happily married with the only man I've loved…for five years. Plus, we have a very cute son. He looks like a male version of me with silver bluish hair. Tokiya doesn't know it yet but…I'm 2 months pregnant with our second child.
Tomorrow is our 5th wedding anniversary. I already have a gift for him. Yes, my gift to him is this baby inside my womb. I never regretted that I married him. I am very happy. For me, being with him and our children is enough for me.
That's all for now…I need to go to sleep now.
After closing her diary and keeping it in the drawer, Fuuko went on their bed. She gave Tokiya a light kiss on his forehead. She smiled. I love you. After that, she finally putted herself to sleep, with smile on her tired face.
"Ohayou." Tokiya greeted his wife and kissed her on the cheek. He knelt down and hugged his four-year-old son, Akio. Akio hugged back his father. "Are you done eating, kid?"
Akio nodded happily. "Are we going to school now, Daddy?"
Tokiya messed the neatly combed silver bluish hair of his son. "Yeah…just wait for me in the car, okay?"
Fuuko knelt down to fix her son's hair. "Messing his hair is becoming your hobby." After neatly combing Akio's hair, she kissed him on the cheek. "There. Mommy now fixed your hair. Go to the car and wait for your Daddy. Be good in school, okay?" Akio kissed his mommy on the cheek then happily exited the house. Fuuko stood up and wrapped her arms around Tokiya's neck. "Do you know what day it is today, Mi-chan?"
"Don't you know? Today's Wednesday. Why did you ask?"
Fuuko suddenly glared at Tokiya then turned away from him. "Are you going home for lunch or what?" She asked coldly. Damn him! How come he doesn't remember this most important day? "…'cause if not, I'm gonna bring you your bento box later in the office."
She seems weird today. He thought. "I have a lot of work to do today. If you don't mind, bring the bento box later." Tokiya noticed that his wife held on to the counter for support. "Are you alright, Fuuko?"
The violet-haired woman quickly shook her head. She used her free hand to touch her forehead. "I…uhm…I just feel dizzy. I didn't get enough sleep last night." This is what I hate…morning sickness. "You better go now…Akio's waiting for you."
"Are you sure you're alright?"
"Yeah...I'll be fine. You should worry about your son. If you'll not go now, he'll be late for his class!" Fuuko replied.
Tokiya gave Fuuko a goodbye kiss before he left her on the kitchen. After Tokiya and Ako left, Fuuko slammed her hand onto the counter in anger. How dare him! How come he doesn't remember the day we got married? Then, Fuuko suddenly vomited, expelling from her mouth what she ate earlier. Fuuko quickly opened the faucet to wash out all that she has vomited in the sink, and then rinsed her mouth. She took a deep breath before she started preparing the bento box that she's going to bring to her husband.
"I wanted to talk to your boss, Mikagami Tokiya."
"I see. May I get your name, please?"
"Mikagami Fuuko." She replied.
The receptionist's eyes opened wide as well as her mouth in complete shock. "Mikagami…Fuuko?"
"Yeah…I'm his wife. Is there a problem with that?"
The receptionist laughed nervously "Ah…of course there's no problem with that. I was just surprised. Let me call the boss now." Mikagami-sama is already married? And with this hag? Heck, I'm far more beautiful than her! The receptionist thought. She dialed a number. After the third ring, the personal assistant of Tokiya answered. "Mikagami-sama's wife is here downstairs." She said politely
"Oh? Let her come here. Mikagami-san already told me that she'll come."
After ending the call, the receptionist putted down the receiver back to its cradle and looked at Fuuko. "Mikagami-sama's assistant told me that you can now go to your husband's office, ma'am. If you don't mind, I--"
"No need. I already know the way." Fuuko replied and already headed to the elevator.
The receptionist stuck out her tongue after the elevator doors closed. She sighed in frustration for she found out that her beloved Mikagami-sama is now happily married.
Fuuko chuckled "Drop the –sama, will you? I am not the empress of Japan."
"Forgive me…it's just that I respect you so much because you're the wife of the CEO."
"Whatever. Is Tokiya inside?"
"Ah yes of course, Fuuko-sama. Let me accompany you to the office."
"I already said drop the –sama, right?" Fuuko muttered. She headed towards the other door. Syuichiroh entered first. Fuuko patiently waited.
"Mikagami-san, your wife is already here."
Tokiya looked at his assistant. "Really? Tell her to come inside."
"Hai!" Syuichiroh bowed and exited. "Fuuko-sama, you may come inside."
"Thanks." Fuuko entered Tokiya's office and closed the door. "Here's your lunch."
Tokiya stood up and kissed Fuuko on the cheek. "Thanks…for the lunch."
"You still don't remember don't you?" Fuuko asked, after giving the paper bag with bento box inside to her husband.
"I asked you before you left, right? About...the day today…you…you really don't remember it, Mi-chan? I…hope...I hope you didn't totally forget because…this day is very important for me…for both of us."
Tokiya simply shook his head. "I'm sorry but I really don't remember."
Fuuko, like what she did earlier, glared at her husband and turned away from him. "Enjoy your lunch." She was about to open the door when Tokiya hugged her from behind. "Wha—what do you think you're doing?"
Tokiya rested his chin on Fuuko's head. "Nothing…I just miss you."
Fuuko rolled her eyes and removes Tokiya's arms around her chest. "I'll go now. I have to fetch Akio in the school."
"See you later then. And don't forget to go home early."
Fuuko's eyes opened wide and she turned to look at him "You know…not only you've forgotten this important day but you've also become weird today." Fuuko opened the door, exited and closed it angrily. Tokiya simply chuckled. I didn't forget, of course.
Fuuko looked up to see who spoke and was surprised to see Amy massaging her forehead. "Amy! Are you hurt? I…I'm sorry." She stood up and approached her secretary. "I didn't know that you're there. Sorry."
"Ah…it's alright, Fuuko-san." Amy replied politely. "Forgive me for meddling with your personal affairs, Fuuko-san, but do you have a problem?"
Fuuko sighed and asked her secretary to sit down. Amy sat down on the nearby swindle chair while Fuuko sat on the couch. "Not a real problem. I was just disappointed."
"Why? Is it related to your work?"
"No…" Fuuko looked at her. "Just forget about it. Anyways, why are you here?"
"Oh…well, Fuuko-san…someone actually delivered a bouquet of flowers." Amy went outside and came back with a bouquet of white roses with lavenders. She handed it carefully to the violet-haired woman. "It's so beautiful, Fuuko-san." Amy complimented
Fuuko stared at the bouquet for several seconds. "Yeah…you're right." She checked if there was a card. To her surprise, there was no card. "Uhm…do you know who sent this to me?"
Amy shook her head "Just the delivery guy, Fuuko-san. I asked him but he didn't answer. Maybe, it was from your husband. I'll continue my work now, Fuuko-san."
"I see…thanks again." Fuuko replied. After Amy closed the door, she stood up and went back to her table. Her eyes were still fixed on the bouquet. Do you really think that I'll forgive you by simply giving me flowers, Mikagami Tokiya?
Until now, she's wondering why her husband asked her to come home early.
Fuuko is busy talking to someone right now. And that someone happens to be her husband, Mikagami Tokiya.
"Yeah, yeah I'm gonna go home now, Tokiya! I still don't know why you're asking me all of a sudden to go home. Wait a minute, how's Akio?" Fuuko asked.
"He's fine. He's reading his homework."
Fuuko pulled her computer's plug out of the socket. "That's…good then."
"Aren't you going to ask me how I am?"
Fuuko rolled her eyes as she exited her office. She looked at Amy and waved her free hand to say goodbye "Why should I? I think you're fine so there's no need to ask."
"Whatever. Just go home…now."
"You don't need to tell that to me again and again. I already told you, right? I'll leave the office and go home. Bye." She replied. She pressed the button to end the call and placed her cell phone inside her handbag. Fuuko exited the building then went to the parking lot. The moment she found her car, she unlocked the door and hopped inside to drive home, with bouquet of flowers she received a while ago placed in the backseat.
30 minutes later…
Fuuko parked her car in the garage and stopped the engine. She went out and locked the door. Fuuko walked towards the main door and knocked. She knocked for five times and yet no one bothered to open the door for her. Fuuko then grabbed the keys and used it to open the door. Huh? Lights out "I'm home!" Fuuko shouted but no one replied. Where are Tokiya and Akio? "Tokiya? Akio? I'm home!" Strange…Fuuko thought No one's answering but I can sense that someone's here. For the third time, she shouted "I'm home!!" but still, no one answered. She sighed and turned on the lights. As the lights went on, Fuuko's mouth opened in shock. She quickly closed her mouth and glared at her husband "Mikagami Tokiya!! What kind of sick joke is this? Turning off ALL the lights and not reacting even though I shouted three times?"
"You have forgotten the flowers." Tokiya simply replied, not moving an inch to give Fuuko even a peck on her cheek
"Don't change the subject, Mikagami Tokiya!" Fuuko hissed. Flowers? How did he know? "Wait a minute…you're the one who sent those flowers?"
"And who else would send a bouquet of white roses with lavenders to you, monkey? Don't tell me you're actually thinking that it was an admirer or your fan. Please, Mikagami Fuuko, everyone knows you're already married for five long years. To be specific, you got married to me, Mikagami Tokiya, today."
Fuuko blinked "Today? You mean…"
Tokiya approached Fuuko and locked her in a tight embrace. "I didn't forget it, Fuuko. What made you think that I actually forgot the day we married?"
Fuuko blushed, tears starting to come out of her eyes "It's because…when I asked you about the day today, you simply said that today is Wednesday. You're so mean! I really thought you have completely forgotten this day! I almost thought of filing a divorce."
Tokiya chuckled "Divorce? Then I'll win the case because you have such a lame reason for divorcing me." He then stroked her shoulder-length violet hair "I will never forget this day, Fuuko. I will always remember." He leaned down to kiss her. She responded at first but quickly pulled herself away from him. "Fuuko?"
"Akio might see us."
"Don't worry. I actually gave him the permission to play in Yanagi's house today. She said that she will keep an eye on him."
Fuuko smiled then pinched Tokiya's face. "You really planned this carefully, ne?"
Tokiya nodded. "So…you want to have dinner outside?"
Fuuko smiled "Uhm…Mi-chan, I want to…but only if we'll eat umeboshi and pork tonkatsu."
"Umeboshi? Pork Tonkatsu? What a weird combination."
Fuuko nodded "Why? I…was just craving for 'em. Mi-chan, let's eat umeboshi and tonkatsu, please?" She puppy-eyed Tokiya, hoping her wish will be granted.
He can't resist her, with those eyes used on him, Tokiya was so sure he wouldn't stand a chance and knowing Fuuko, he immediately granted her request, although he still finds Fuuko's choice of food strange. Fuuko, in happiness, hugged Tokiya tightly. "Hey, easy!"
"Thank you for granting the request of a pregnant woman." Fuuko replied and gave Tokiya a quick kiss on the lips.
"Pregnant woman? You mean…"
Fuuko nodded happily "Yeah. I'm pregnant with our second child, Tokiya."
Tokiya gently pushed Fuuko's head near to his body and whispered something on her ear. "You made me really happy." He looked at her, each others' eyes full of love. Tokiya again kissed her.
I love my husband…really.
What I told him earlier was true. I almost thought of filing a divorce because he forgot that today was our wedding anniversary. Was it because of my mood swings? Maybe. But there's no more reason to file a divorce today. He told me that he'll never forget this day-the day when we became one. I love him and he loves me back. And we have two children now. I am really, really happy.
I never regretted my decision of marrying him…really. He's the best thing that has happened to my life…until now.
I know this happiness will never end…as long as he's here.
I love you, Mikagami Tokiya.
Umeboshi is a type of Japanese pickle. It is usually eaten with rice and is a common ingredient of onigiri (rice balls). Tonkatsu is a meal consists of (usually) pork and cabbage
