One-shot five: Dead end?
"Dead end. I suppose I've met my dead end. Is this what it feels like to be betrayed? Hurt? Dead? I don't know anymore. If only he could see what he's done to me? That bastard!" Shuichi said as he sat in his empty but new apartment with a gun in his hands.
It was a cold day and the windows had steamed up from the heat inside the apartment. Eiri was sitting in front of his laptop as usual and Shuichi was sitting in the corner watching him as his fingers flew across the silver keyboard. The lyrics that Shuichi had been working on lay forgotten next to him and his pen was in between his soft, pink lips. Eiri turned towards him as he coughed suddenly.
"You're annoying me. Get the hell out of my office and stay out. Go watch some fucking TV or something!" Eiri shouted with ice dripping off his voice. Normally, Shuichi would have kicked up a fuss and apologized but this time he just went ahead with it. He had thought about leaving but he couldn't do it, no matter what Eiri did or said.
It irritated him, the fact that Eiri could do and say everything under the sky to him and he just couldn't retaliate. He turned on the TV as he slumped onto the couch that had become his bed considering, Eiri had kicked him out of the bedroom. He flicked through the channels, becoming bored easily. He turned on the news hoping that a news flash could get him excited. But, the news he heard wasn't what he wanted to hear exactly.
"And today on the news, we have top stories of Bad luck becoming no.1 in the hit charts, a rabid dog passing a disease on to all the other dogs in Kyoto and Eiri Yuki; current lover or new wife? Our first story today is Eiri Yuki; current lover or new wife? It was reported today that the marriage contract has been found of current hit romance novelist Eiri Yuki to a woman known as Seika Ridichi. Apparently, this marriage contract is still valid and Seika-San seems to think they are still married. But, what about Shuichi Shindou, Eiri Yuki's current lover?
Are they broken up and has Seika-San
joined the novelist? Here we have Seika Ridichi on the issue.
Ridichi-San, what do you have to say on this?" the reporter said in
that annoying voice that all reporters have.
"Well, as far as I know, Eiri said that he'd be away from home for a few months and the he'd return to me and we'd get married again. I don't know who this Shindou person is but I assure you, no one is getting Eiri but me!" Seika Ridichi said snobbishly.
Tears cascaded down Shuichi's cheeks as he realised he had been cheated. He just couldn't understand. Why didn't Eiri tell him? Eiri looked at the boy in shock as he finished watching the news behind the unsuspecting boy. He didn't think anyone would find out. He had no intention of returning to that horrible wench. He did love the boy; he just couldn't express it verbally. Shuichi turned around to find a shell-shocked looking Eiri standing in the doorway of his office.
"It's okay Eiri. I understand. You don't need to say anything. Sayonara!" Shuichi said in a rush while getting up and moving towards the door. He didn't shove on shoes or anything like that; he pulled open the door and ran out feeling empty. Eiri ran after him, knowing that if he let Shuichi go, he'd lose the only person that truly loved him and that he'd ever actually love. But, Shuichi ran like lightning and Eiri just couldn't keep up.
Eiri ended up kneeling in the snow with his head in his hands and tears making their way down his pale cheeks. Shuichi continued to run until he ended up at NG studios where he quit to the surprise of his band-mates and all the staff at NG. After a hurried apology to Hiro and Fujisaki, he ran and bought an apartment with the last of his money.
Seguchi was surprised at this turn
of events and ran to go find his brother-in-law. He found his
brother-in-law on his knees, four blocks away from his apartment with
his head in his hands. He walked to him and placed a hand on his
shoulder. Eiri lifted his head up and sobbed into Seguchi's coat!
Seguchi was shocked to say in the least and comforted as best as he
"Shhhhh. What happened? Come on, tell me. I'll fix everything." Seguchi whispered to Eiri in an effort to comfort him. Eiri told him what had happened in the last couple of hours whilst sobbing uncontrollably and shivering due to the cold.
"Alright, I'll fix it. You go home and get warm. Your lips are turning blue. Go on. Go home!" Seguchi urged. Once he saw Eiri to his apartment he set off to find K so that he could find Shuichi and get his number one band back again. Thankfully, the press hadn't caught wind of any of this yet.
Shuichi was conveniently at his new apartment sitting on the hard wooden floor with a gun in his hands. He toyed with it and had even switched the safety on and off.
That was how K found him two weeks later. He looked pale, skinny and had terrible bags under his eyes. He had not moved form that spot for two weeks! As soon as K had burst into the apartment and had caught sight of him, he grabbed him and slung him over his shoulder. Outside, Seguchi was standing with a very exhausted looking Eiri by his side. K threw Shuichi up in the air, making Shuichi drop the gun he had been playing with. Thankfully, the safety was on so no one had to worry about getting shot.
As Shuichi fell back to the ground he became in an uneasy state of unconsciousness. Eiri caught him when he came back to the ground and cradled him. He smiled before passing out himself. K caught them both and signalled to the paramedics, who were on standby, to come and take the unconscious pair. The pair was taken to the hospital where they were treated and nourished as needed. After a few weeks, they were released and everything had become normal once again.
Except for the evening when Eiri's
'wife' turned up and raised hell. She had told him to come home
and forget about Shuichi.
"Don't worry you old hag. I am home, and I won't forget Shuichi because he is my love, my life and will soon be my husband. So, get out you horrible, snobby wench. I never loved you and never will, so do me a favour and get out. Oh yes, and you don't have to worry about divorce papers because I'm not wearing the ring anymore and I've burned all evidence of us being married. So hah!" Eiri had said with pride. She had screamed and shouted until Seguchi and K had turned up and escorted her away. The press were dealt with soon afterwards and no one dared to speak of it again. In the end, Shuichi and Eiri were married and lived a happy life or as in fairy tales they lived happily ever after!
