Final Disclaimer: I Do Not Own Case Closed/Detective Conan.
We were now walking home. Ever since I hugged her, my face just won't drop that smile, a content smile. I just felt relieved that I know what I am feeling now. Even though my mind just said 'Man she got you' I'm not that stupid to not know what that is. I love her. I love Shiho Miyano. I don't know when or how, I just love her. Now that I know this I feel like flying. I feel so good. I feel like I'm in heaven.
"Shinichi!" I heard Shiho said.
"We're here." She said gesturing Hakase's house.
"Right." I answered, and opened the gate for the both of us then entered, with of course the smile on my face.
"We're back." I shouted.
"Hakase's not yet here no need to say that. He won't come back until next week."
"Right are you alright here Shiho? I mean, you're alone here aren't you? You could stay in our house with me and Mom."
"No thanks Shinichi. I prefer to stay here."
"Alright if you say so, I got to get going Mom is probably waiting for me it is 6 anyway."
"Alright, bye." And with that I got out of the house and went back to mine.
"I'm back!" I shouted for the second time.
"I'm here Shin-chan!" a voice said that was coming from the library. I went inside wanting to tell Mom something.
"Welcome back Shinichi." a deep manly voice greeted me when I entered the library.
"Dad! When did you come here?" I asked in slight shock.
"Well it seems that you are not pleased to see me."
"No it's not that, I was just curious." I sat down on the chair
We were sharing quite a silence for a while before my Mom broke it.
"Shin-chan, do you want to say something?"
"Uhh… Mom I think I would like to talk with Dad for a while." 'Change of plans.'
Mom just smiled at me and to Dad and headed out.
Once Mom was out I let a sigh escape my mouth.
"Looks like it's a guy thing?" my dad said leaning on the table in front of me.
"Dad… how did you know you loved Mom?"
Shinichi's question caught me off guard. I just smiled at him and said, "Shinichi when I first saw your Mom I didn't love her, it wasn't the magical feeling they call 'love at first sight'. First we started as friends, she helped me in my cases sometimes and I helped her memorize her lines in her movies. As time passed by our friendship just grew deeper. I asked her if she could be my girl and we gave it a shot. We were in the stage of boyfriend-girlfriend for quite a long time, until I had this serious and dangerous case. Your Mom wanted to go with me like she used to and help, but I didn't want to risk her. We were dealing with an organization specialized in murdering, stealing, and smuggling weapons. She kept on pestering me about her going with me so I gave up since it was taking so much time. I told her to stay with me all the time and handed her a gun, I taught her how to use one when I taught you. Then, the raid began. Guns shooting, blood scattered everywhere, people shouting, that was the scene where in I took your Mom with. Like I said she stayed behind me all the time. When I was busy fighting a guy I heard your Mom scream I finished off the guy and turned back, what I saw petrified me. The big boss was holding your Mom, a gun pointed at her chest, at her heart to be exact. I asked why point at the heart when he could point at the brain, what he said kind of made me realize I love her so much that I cant live without her, he said, "I'm pointing at her heart because that's where you are in. You love her don't you? You love her that's why you told her to stay at your back all the time. By the looks of it, she followed you and the reason behind that is she loves you back. I want to hurt you and her. Now enough with the chit chat say goodbye to your wifey, Kudo Yusaku." he was about to shoot when one of my colleague shot him. At that time I felt relieved and scared. Scared because what if he was late and shot him right after Yukiko got shot? What if I wasn't able to notice that Yukiko was held captive? Will he still shoot her? Those things went up my mind. I was brought out of my thoughts when your mother hugged me tight, very tight. Then I realized I can't live a life with out her." I just looked at my son after finishing the story. I saw him sitting on the chair and was obviously thinking.
But my son never fails to amuse me. He shouted, "You mean I have to experience that with Shiho just to know if I love her?" After saying this his eyes widened and I bet he just realized what he said. I just smiled and said,
"I didn't say you have to experience that."
"Then how do I know if I love her?"
"You're going to take her to that prom aren't you?"
"Then make a move there. If you feel like you should do it then do it, if not then don't. But let me tell you this son, tomorrow at the prom that might be your last chance. Oh yeah, by the way, I bet you my whole income in a year, you love her." And with that I headed out the room.
I heard my son and husband's chat. I just stayed at the door and when I heard that Yusaku was going out already I went to the kitchen. When I saw that Yusaku already went up stairs, I quickly grabbed the phone and dialed a certain number. It rang twice and a voice greeted me,
"Hakase! It's Yukiko. We have a change of plans."
"Oi Yukiko! What change are you talking about?"
"You can go back tomorrow."
"What? Why? Shinichi acted up that fast? They're together already?"
"I wish that would happen, but it didn't. But! There is an improvement. Shinichi already figured out the misunderstandings he had with himself." while saying that I couldn't help but smile.
"Okay… I will be back tomorrow morning. Oh and Yukiko…"
"Thanks. Thanks for helping Shinichi solve the misunderstanding he had. Thanks to you my daughter wouldn't wait for long anymore."
"That's nothing Hakase. You're welcome."
-misunderstandings he had with himself."
"That's nothing Hakase. You're welcome."
Those were the words I heard from Mom. I went up to my room deep in thought. I was thinking about these misunderstandings. I reached my room and lied down on my bed. I smiled to myself because I finally solved the misunderstandings that Mom was saying.
First misunderstanding: Ran.
Although Ran is my child hood friend I didn't love her. Of course I loved her but it was a sister-brother love. It wasn't the romantic kind of feelings.
Second misunderstanding: Shiho.
Shiho. Shiho is the woman that caught my heart. She is the one that made me feel these… things. She makes me happy, sad, irritated, curious, mad, jealous, everything! She makes me feel everything. One moment I'm mad at her and the next I am not just because I made her smile. But hey, I love her, and THAT'S what's important.
I slept after that thought and after smiling.
~The Next Day; Prom Day; Confession Day; The Special Day~
I woke up at the sound of my Mom shouting my name and saying something about breakfast. Having no other choice I pushed the covers off my body and sat up. I stood up and stretched my arms and back then headed down stairs. I saw Mom eating pancakes, eggs and hotdogs while Dad was sipping his coffee and reading the news paper with the same food Mom has in front of him. I sat on my seat and ate the same.
"So are you going to confess to her already Shin-chan?" the ever so sweet and direct voice of my Mom asked.
If I wasn't her son I would've choked to death by surprise at her question and how direct it was.
"I…" I paused and looked at her with gentle serious eyes and said, "I will. Later." I was expecting her to squeal and shout for joy or at least do something that is totally girlish. But all she did was smile at me. It wasn't even showing her teeth. It was just a plain simple gentle sincere smile, a content smile.
I just shrugged it off and continued eating my breakfast.
I was going to put another hotdog in my mouth when Dad spoke.
"So, what are you planning to do Shinichi?"
I released a sigh that I didn't know I was holding and bit into the hot dog.
"I take that as an 'I don't know.'" Dad said, smirking.
"What am I supposed to do? I never asked anyone to be my girl ever since I was born!"
Dad just smirked at me while Mom was grinning to herself.
"You shouldn't have said that Shinichi." my dad said.
Confused I was about to ask him why but Mom just showed me the answer,
"Shin-chan and Shiho-chan will be together! I am sooooo happy! Yusaku we have to celebrate for this! We have to make a welcoming party for Shiho so that she would know that our family accepts her! we have to make the preparations as soon as possible, we have so many things to do, buy gifts for Shiho, call a caterer, call our friends, cousins, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, everybody! And-"
"Cut it Mom! I am telling you this now, Shiho wouldn't like that. She isn't the type of person who wants everybody to know her."
"Bu-bu-but!" Mom said while placing on her puppy dog eyes.
"Do you want her to hate you?"
"Alright… just promise me one thing Shin-chan."
Mom put on a sincere smile and said, "Bring her home… as your girl."
I returned the smile and said, "Pray for me." And with that, I got ready for the day.
I woke up at the sound of my alarm clock. I stretched, stood up, blinked, yawned, sighed, and smiled. Today was the prom. Today my date is Shinichi. I don't know why I am acting like this but… yeah. I feel like today is a special day. Well after I stood there I walked out the room to find Hakase at the table drinking some coffee and reading the newspaper.
"Morning Hakase." I greeted.
"Ohh! You're early today Shiho-kun! Have somewhere to go? The prom doesn't start till 12 right?" Hakase asked.
"Yeah but I woke up because I want to just take my time. I don't want to rush things today."
"Oh, alright. By the way what's for breakfast Shiho-kun?" Hakase said while smiling widely.
"The usual Hakase! Oatmeal and fresh fruits for you and I."
I saw his smile turn into a frown and I just smirked at this, honestly Hakase never learns.
I started to cook the oatmeal and cutting the fruits. I and Hakase ate our food in silence and we finished around 7. After cleaning up and washing the dishes, I said to Hakase
"I'm going to my room and get ready Hakase!"
And with that I got ready for the day.
Miyano Shiho got ready for the day by first taking a 1 and a half hour shower. When she finished taking a bath she brought out some shorts and a loose button-up shirt. She dried her now pass- the- shoulder length hair and started putting some pins on it. Unfortunately she wasn't satisfied with her look and changed her hair style again and again and again.
On the other hand, at 7:30 in the morning Kudo Shinichi was facing the mirror trying to, well, do nothing actually. He was just staring at himself at the mirror. The truth was, he was thinking of what to say, do, and how to act by the time he sees Shiho. After a few more minutes of contemplating with himself, he took a 1 hour bath and dried his hair and placed on a boxer shorts and a white fit shirt.
When it was already 11 o'clock Shinichi changed into his tux while Shiho was just lying on the couch reading a magazine. Shiho ended up just letting her hair down.
It was 11:05 am to be exact, by the time Shinichi went to Hakase's residence. He rang the doorbell and went in without anyone opening it for him or telling him that he could come in. when he came in he saw Shiho on the couch a sleep on the couch. Shiho had her long white legs up on the arm rest and her head on top of a pillow while the magazine on top of her face. Shinichi slowly and carefully picked up the magazine and placed it on the table after closing it. He was just staring at her in silence until sleeping beauty spoke,
"Care to share what you're looking at?" she said with a smirk on her face while standing up.
Shinichi was blushing, though he wouldn't admit it himself, while saying,
"Uhh… I was... umm…"
Shiho just smiled and said, "Just wait here and I'll go and get ready."
And with that she left the High School Detective Kudo Shinichi there beside the sofa blushing like mad.
I went to my room and wore the dress that Shinichi bought and picked for me, and pinned my hair a little to the side. I wore the 2 inched sky blue shoes that Shinichi also bought for me.
'He bought these for me.' I smiled at the thought but immediately placed on my poker face and thought once more,
'Hah! What are you thinking! He would buy his girlfriend thousands of shoes and dresses! He would buy even more beautiful and expensive dresses for Mouri-san! Don't think that he is treating you special! That's enough. Enough of your fantasies! Enough of that 'he's-treating-me-special' thoughts. Enough of your… hoping. Hoping that he would be yours. Hoping that one day he would love you. Hoping that you could be together.'
"Hoping that he would say… "I love you… Shiho." as is aid the last sentence of my thoughts I felt a tear roll down my cheek. I quickly wiped it off and turned my face back into something that no one could ever read. Not even him.
And with that, I opened the door and started down the stairs.
'What's taking her so long? Maybe… maybe she changed her mind of going with me and… and… and went out through her window and went out with some guy? What if a guy… a guy was waiting in her room and they went out the house somehow without me knowing or noticing? Uhhhh! My plans are ruined.'
"Ha-ha… I don't even have a plan, what more for plans." I said to myself aloud. My train of thoughts was diverted to the sound of a door closing. I immediately looked up and saw Shiho. Once I saw her I almost jumped of my seat.
I just went at the end of the staircase and waited for her to arrive at the final foot step of the staircase while looking at her intently.
"Ready to go?" I asked her once she was near enough for her to hear me.
I offered my hand as a gentleman and she looked at me. Of course Shiho Miyano just walked pass through me without even accepting my offer.
I smiled to myself and mumbled, "That's my Shiho for you."
"Do you even have a plan of going to the prom Shinichi?"
"Coming!" as I shouted that, I ran to her and we went to the car that Dad let me borrow.
We rode the car and I said, "Ready?"
She just nodded in response.
I breathed and started the car and went to the school.
We arrived at the school at around 12:30 because of traffic.
When we entered, to my surprise, many people stopped what they were doing and looked at us. My arm was linked with Shinichi's arm and when we walked in they were all staring at us and they were like giving us way so we could walk. They were like giving us a red carpet. We even heard some things like:
'Wow look at Miyano-san, she's so hot!'
'They look so cute together!'
'Miyano-san sure is lucky to be Shinichi-kun's date.'
'I wish I could be Miyano-san!'
'Man, we don't stand a chance against Kudo.'
'We don't stand a chance against Miyano-san.'
'If ever Kudo breaks Miyano-san's heart he's gonna get one hell of a punishment.'
'I am sooo jealous of Miyano-san!' and things like that.
I and Shinichi stood there almost awkwardly but was saved by the soccer team which greetedShinichi.
"Hey Kudo! No fair! We asked Shiho first!"
"Oi oi! Kudo! Could it be that our team cap is falling for the schools hottest, smartest, and not to mention a school prodigy?"
"Kudo! When you break up with her tell me first alright?"
"Kudo and Miyano-san, going out, wow, I wonder if the school girls, fan girls, fan clubs, and other sorts of clubs that adore Kudo would take this ummm… smoothly."
Things like that are what I and Shinichi could hear. Shinichi just sweat dropped while I just smirked at him. When the soccer team started the fuss everyone went back to their business, which was of course; partying, drinking, dancing, some of them already making-out at this time of the day, flirting, talking, laughing, and all those stuff that everyone would normally do in a party.
I was busy observing my surroundings but I didn't fail to hear Shinichi tell his teammates rather shyly,
"Idiots! Who cares if my fan girls wouldn't take it good? Aburame! Why would I tell you first if I and Shiho break up? And Hatake, sorry but Shiho is as good as taken."
I smirked once more at this and all his friends 'yiiiieee-d' at us, but soon left us alone.
"Let's take a seat." Shinichi said dragging me to one of the couches.
We sat there on the couch and not long heard a person using a microphone say, "Alright, ladies and gentlemen, pair up with you darlings and dance with the music!" right after he said that the fast music turned into a slow and romantic one. We just sat there and looked at them dance. One waiter went up to us and offered us drinks. We both took something non-alcoholic. After a few minutes I was getting tired of sitting there I said to Shinichi something that he might not have expected,
"Let's dance." And with that I stood up and pulled him up.
I dragged him to the middle of the dance floor in between several couples and placed my hands over his neck and told him, "You're supposed to place your hands around my waist you know." I said smirking and looked at him, even though it was slightly dark and different colors of lights were on all at the same time, I could tell that Shinichi was blushing. HARD. I smirked to this and decided to entertain myself a little more.
I leaned in and whispered in his ears, "Why are you blushing my dear tantei-kun?" I felt him stiffen and just smirked at this.
"Come on Shinichi let's dance. Why are you blushing anyway?"
"N-not-thing." He stuttered.
I dropped my smirk and placed my hands down and said, "You know… if you don't want to dance its fine." I placed my hands over his in an attempt to remove it but before I could he said, "Who said I didn't want to dance?" and with that he started swaying.
I just smiled and placed back my arms around his neck and swayed with him.
We were just staring at each other.
'Why are you acting so different today? You even asked him to dance first! What happened to being an Ice Queen? It totally ruined your title. Wha-'
My thoughts were disturbed when I hear Shinichi's name. The voice came from, of course what do I expect, his angel; Ran Mouri in a somehow short dress.
I looked at her but still dancing and Shinichi seems to be in his own world and didn't even bother to turn his head when Mouri-san spoke.
"Shinichi." she said
I looked at Shinichi and found he was still staring at me and I just said, "Kudo-kun! Your girl is calling you." I said loud enough for him to come back to earth.
"Huh?" he said blushing mad realizing what he has been doing.
"I said your girl is calling you. Kudo-kun why don't you go with her for a while." With that I stopped dancing and went to a couch while hearing whispers like:
'Aren't Miyano-san and Kudo on first name basis? Why did she call him Kudo again?'
'Ran-san is his girlfriend? I thought Miyano-san was his girlfriend? Could it be that Shinichi-kun is a two timer?'
'How dare Kudo two-time Miyano-san!'
'Miyano-san has been tricked by Shinichi-kun! How awful!' And stuffs like that.
"I said your girl is calling you. Kudo-kun why don't you go with her for a while." I heard her say.
I was about to protest but she let go of me and proceeded to walk towards an empty couch. But as soon as she sat, guys started to ask her for a dance, which in return she didn't even mind to answer back. 'That's Ice Queen for you.' I thought to myself and sweat dropped. Yes, I heard every whisper they say, but chose to ignore it. I went out of my trance when someone called me,
"Shinichi!" Ran almost shouted.
"Yo Ran!" I just said casually.
"May I have this dance Shinichi?"
"Uhh yeah sure." I said and she hooked her arms around my neck and mine around her waist, but I was not really taking my eyes off Shiho. It bothers me that she calls Ran my girl and the fact that she just called me Kudo-kun again.
We started swaying with the music and we just stayed in silence. Something though caught my eyes; Shiho just accepted someone's request for a dance. When I looked at the guys he doesn't look familiar but definitely not an ugly guy. I could even say that he is handsome. And I could also say he isn't Japanese.
I was so distracted that I didn't notice Ran resting her head on my chest and that we were close. Too close in fact.
Shiho and this guy danced just right beside us. I was to preoccupied by the scene before me that Ran had to tap my shoulder in order for me to pay attention.
"Huh? I'm sorry Ran. What were you saying?"
She just smiled to herself and whispered to me, "Good luck Shinichi. Tell her before anyone beats you to it." And with that she let herself slide away from me and disappear in the crowds.
The music suddenly turned into a party music. So Shiho and the unknown guy let go of each other and started to dance with the rhythm.
I just stood there and watched them. I don't know why but I couldn't move. Then I remembered what a few told me,
"Bring her home… as your girl."
"…let me tell you this son, tomorrow at the prom that might be your last chance."
"…oh yeah, by the way, I bet you my whole income in a year, you love her."
Upon remembering those words I began to head towards them and approached the guy with a big fake, forced smile and said,
"Hey there! Mind me borrowing my girlfriend?" I asked and, I didn't bother to wait for his answer, dragged Shiho outside.
Shiho just followed me and when we were outside alone I let go of her hand. It was already dark since it was already 5:30 pm and it was December, meaning shorter days and longer nights.
"Well? Care to explain Shinichi?" I heard Shiho say.
I was a little mad at her for accepting the guys offer of dancing even though I am not yet her boyfriend.
"Who was that guy?" I said my voice coming out like ice.
"Him? He's my friend back in America. He used to be my classmate. He also used to court me."
"He used to what?" I shouted.
Shiho was taken a back at the suddenness of the volume of my voice and not so long she regained her senses and her eyes began to twitch and said shouting also,
"He used to COURT me! Why the heck are you shouting! Are you turning deaf Shinichi!" the last two sentences were not said in a shout anymore but still loud.
"He used to court you and you still accepted his offer to dance? What if he did something perverted to you! What if he did something to you! What would you do?" I said loud but not as loud as before.
"Shinichi, what are you saying? Even if he courted me he was still my friend! And if he tried anything on me I would have punched him."
"For God's sake Shiho! He is a guy! Believe it or not guys are still stronger than girls! I am not saying you are weak but Shiho! even though you were trained by the organization do you think you could beat a guy? Shiho besides it being inappropriate, it is perfectly not normal for a girl to fight off a guy."
"Kudo-kun I believe you are underestimating me. You don't fully know what I am capable of. I may be a girl but I am no ordinary girl. Hell is what the organi-"
"God Shiho I told you! I am not saying that you are weak bu-"
"Why are you even saying this? You usually don't care! Why start caring now? I don't see any reason on why you should even be doing this! Why did you even announce that I was your date to the whole class in the first place! Why did you make me call you by your first name? Why are you acti-"
"It's because I love you damn it!" I said loudly.
"It's because I love you! I am saying this because I am jealous! I may not care before but I do now! I announced it to the whole class so that they would know you are mine! I made you call me by my first name because I don't want you to act formal around me! I want you to be you around me. I love you. It's all because I love you." I said the last part in almost a whisper. I was now staring at the ground.
One minute we were shouting at each other and then now we are quiet. Very quiet. I looked at her and saw her face with eyes that contained tears that were threatening to fall but was held. I sighed and said,
"Do you love me back?" and with that, she ran to me and hugged me, tears now freely falling.
"I take that as a yes?" I said smiling.
"It took you long enough." She whispered but enough for me to hear. I smiled at this and we just stayed like that for who knows how long. We were happy the way we were positioned. I was happy that I got solve all the misunderstandings I had.
BUT! When I looked up and so did Shiho we saw a giant white bird soaring in the air.
"Hey Shinichi, isn't that Kid?" Shiho said in her usual but a little bit happier tone.
"Yup. That's Kid. That's the girl who gave us the class you were in, the teacher that said you were my girl, the guy in school who was supposedly Nakamura, the teacher who asked who my date in this prom was, and that was also probably your supposedly friend earlier." I said while smiling still looking at the sky and thought,
'I'll let you of this time since you helped me.'
And with that I lead Shiho in the school and started to enjoy the prom as a couple.
Lots of love
