Beautiful girls all over the world
I could be chasing but my time would be wasted
They got nothin' on you baby
Nothin' on you baby
They might say hi and I might say hey
But you shouldn't worry about what they say
'Cause they got nothin' on you baby
Nothin' on you baby
"Oh, Tsuruga-kun, you are simply amazing." The young actress stressed as she clutched onto his arm; her eyes wide with stars.
"Thank you Yoichi-san," Ren said, dazzling her with his smile as he slowly pulled his arm out of her grip.
"No Tsuruga-kun," Minami demanded, tightening her grip. "You're being too humble, which is refined," her eyes were in awe. "But you must be able to admit that you are really and truly a well-accomplished actor!"
"Yoichi-san, please," he laughed. "Your regard of me is much too high, I am only human."
"Human, far from it," she whispered, her voice full of affection and admiration. The raven-haired actress flipped her silky locks over her shoulder and threw the handsome actor a mischievous smirk. "You must take me."
Ren stiffened at the implication. Minami's smile grew even more as she let the sentence hang in the air before continuing.
"As your kouhai, of course!" She giggled, lightly slapping his arm. "Silly Tsuruga-kun," she waved her index finger, "such a naughty mind."
A dark aura filled the atmosphere, it was stifling and suffocating. Minami would feel each of her fingers being plucked off the arm of the handsome actor; she staggered back, trying to catch her breath. She looked up and was taken aback by the threatening eyes that stared back at her. Her shaky hands moved upwards, attempting to shield herself from the darkness.
"We have an appointment to get to, Tsuruga-san."
The darkness acknowledged the actor. He turned towards the aura, pulling out a brilliant smile. Light and dark clashed, trying to overpower the other – attempting to gain dominance. Minami watched as the darker half struggled to keep up; knees wavering, the evil vanished from the air.
"So we do Mogami-san, shall we?" Ren asked, pointing towards the door. The golden-haired girl nodded hesitantly. She looked down at Minami and gave her an anxious smile.
"It was a pleasure to see you work, Yoichi-san." She bowed before bounding in the other direction.
Ren had a pleased smile on his face as she looked down at the cowering actress; she had just regained her balance.
"My temporary manager," Ren said. "She's quite the punctual person; I mustn't keep her waiting. Take care Yoichi-san," Ren waved as he went after Kyoko.
He saw her not too far ahead of him; her head bowed down.
What was that? She thought, absorbed in her thoughts. Why did I get to upset? She was only talking to Tsuruga-san…Shamelessly flirting! But why would that matter to me? I'm just his kouhai… But right now I'm his temporary manager and I'm supposed to fend off fans! But she is a fellow actress…
She stopped suddenly – the happiness of her explanation leaving her, she continued to ponder. Ren, not noticing her abrupt halt, walked right into her, causing her to stumble. Swiftly, he reached out for her arm, pulling her back, catching her before she fell. Her back was pulled against his chest, her body became rigid. He leaned down beside her face and smiled.
"You're my one and only, you know that."
Taking a page from Minami's book, Ren let the implications of the sentence hang in the air. He felt Kyoko's breathing hitch, her heart rate accelerate, and the slight shiver that ran down her spine.
"My only kouhai, of course." He smiled, letting go of her arm and walking past her.
Kyoko's eyes closed, taking deep breaths, she attempted to calm herself down.
He's my sempai. She thought.
"Let's go, Mogami-san," Ren called out from the end of the hallway.
Kyoko nodded as she quickened her pace towards him. Exactly. He is my sempai!
However, the feeling of his voice lingered in her body. She'd need to learn how to insert an electronic voice box for her next Ren-doll.
