Thanks for the feedback. Greatly appreciate it. I hope I have less grammatical mistakes in Chapter 2. LOL!
"What? I stole your bag?"
So much for being a Good Samaritan, Sanosuke thought.
"Yes, you are an accomplice. He's probably a friend of yours and you have been spying on me for days finding the right time to steal my bag." Megumi accused.
"Whoa, Lady, are you a writer?" Sanosuke asked.
"No." Megumi answered with a confused look on her face.
"Because your imagination is very active." Sanosuke said. "To make it clear, I am not a thief; I just happen to saw you being hopeless chasing that dude and I thought might as well help you. Simple as that, I do not know you nor spy on you. Plus, I do not need to steal things, I have more than enough."
With her arms crossed over her chest. Megumi is looking straight at the man. He's not bad looking, actually he is handsome, and he could be a model, almost six feet tall, with that gorgeous brown hair and eyes. If looks is enough to think that he is not a thief, then this dude could pass with flying colors. But then again looks can be deceiving. She thought.
"I still could not trust your words. You are probably being all cute and all so that I would forgive you…. No way." She said defiantly.
"Well, let's settle this and go to the nearest police station and file a case against me. Would that be fine for you, Lady?"
Looking at her watch, it says that it is already a quarter past seven. She would be late for the dinner with Kaoru if she would go to the police station. This guy seemed to be genuine, and if he's a thief he would have ran away and get my bag and not explain things to me and even dare me to file a case.
"Okay, I believe you. I won't file a case. And I apologize for accusing you of being a thief."
Megumi said reaching out to Sanosuke for a handshake.
Sano smiled, reach out for her hand and said. "I accept your apology and I think I deserve more than a handshake." He grabbed Megumi forward and give her a peck on the lips before walking away.
Megumi was dumbfounded. He looked at the man waving good bye at her and muttering the word. Ciao.
What the hell was that? He really is a thief and a pervert.
Megumi was fuming mad when she arrived at the restaurant Kaoru reserved for her birthday. She was just in time. Kaoru noticed her friend looking very pissed and asked her what happened.
Megumi explained everything to her. After she finished, Kaoru was laughing.
"What happened to me is not funny at all."
"But it is funny. You accused someone of stealing and ended up getting a birthday kiss." Kaoru laughed.
"Hey, maybe this guy is The One." Kaoru teased her.
"Please, he's not my type."
"And what is your type?"
"Look, I'm not looking for anyone at this moment, I'm happy with my life. I do not need a man, so enough about that guy. And by the way, I'm planning to sue him for sexual harassment."
"How would you sue him" You do not even know his name."
"I would find ways, I'm serious Kaoru, and I am suing the guy. Asked your husband if he could recommend any good lawyer in the firm he's working."
"Are you sure about it?" Kaoru asked.
"Yes, I am. That man should be taught a lesson. You know what I'm hungry, I haven't eaten. Let's order."
"That's a great idea. Happy Birthday Bestfriend! I love you."
"I love you too!"
Sanosuke arrived at his home thirty minutes past eight. What an interesting day he had. He thought thinking about the raven-haired beauty that accused him of being an accomplice. God, she's so gorgeous, looks wise definitely his type with that long hair and not to mention, great legs, his weakness.
As he opened the door, Sano is greeted by a big, furry Chow-Chow. "Hey there, Notaro, how's your day?" Sanosuke greeted him. The dog jumped to him as if welcoming him back home.
"Oh, you are here now. Have you eaten? I'm still finishing our dinner." Katsu said.
Katsu is Sano's brother. Although not blood-related both of them were adopted as a young child by Capt. Sagara, a police who took both boys under his wing. Katsu and Sano were both runaways and became involved in petty illegal activities. Captain Sagara, decided to be a foster parent to both of them when he saw them in a juvenile facility and later on were adopted by him. Captain Sagara died 2 years ago and he left both of them a small inheritance; the house their currently living and a martial arts studio that Captain Sagara inherited from his father.
"So what's for dinner?" Sano asked. Sitting beside him is Notaro, a dog that was lost and that he later on adopted. He is not really a pet lover but he seemed to have a liking to the dog and the same with Notaro.
"Well, I prepared some pasta for tonight. You know that's my specialty. Plus I'm perfecting my recipe for the restaurant I am planning to open."
Sano getting a glimpse at the food started to realize that he has not eaten the whole day and he is hungry. He heartily ate the meal that his brother prepared.
"I know you have a very healthy appetite but this is rather unusual. You ate almost three fourths of the dish. What happened man, I know you. Spill."
Sano recounted the events that happened that day after he finished the story. Katsu was amazed and was laughing.
"Man, the last time you were accused of being a thief was almost 18 years ago."
"I know, that's why I was rather amused than irritated."
"Well, is she a looker?"
"Pretty is an understatement, that's why I can't help myself and kissed her."
"What? You stole a kiss? Now that's a thief."
"Yeah, I bet she's irritated right now."
She arrived around midnight. How time flies, she had a great time with Kaoru. She almost forgot about that damn kiss she got.
"I am not amused at all." She said to herself.
"If there is such a thing as hate at first sight, this is probably it."
Megumi opened her bag. Thank God, that she's able to get it back. Inside is a card from her grandfather. Despite the technology, Dr. Genzai still sends her birthday cards on her birthday ever since she was born. That is why she wanted to get that bag. Documents, money and laptops could be replaced. But her grandfather's card is very important to her. She opened it.
To my dearest Granddaughter,
Happy 30th birthday, I'm so proud of you.
I love you always. I miss you Megumi.
I can't wait to see you next week.
The letter is short and sweet. Just like her grandpa, he always makes a smile on her face. Megumi can't live without him and she's dreading at the thought of her grandpa passing away. She chased those fear away and instead focused on looking forward in meeting him next week for the inauguration of a pediatric ward in the hospital.
Three days later…..
In the middle of his work Sanosuke received a text message from his brother.
Sano, Notaro is confined in the vet's clinic today. He has been feeling weak all day and refused to eat.
Sano text back and inquired about the vet's clinic, well, the clinic is around 4 blocks away from his office he would go there once his work is finished.
I hope Notaro is alright. I can't imagine living without that dog. He thought to himself.
"Are you alright buddy?" Megumi asked the Chow-Chow named Notaro. The dog had eaten a bunch of chocolate chipped cookies that's why he got weak. The one who brought him said that his brother owns the dog and would be coming in her clinic after his weak.
Sanosuke Sagara, is the name of my brother, he would be coming here to check up on his dog. Well, that's really cute. Megumi really likes a man that is a pet lover one of her weaknesses, actually, one of her requirements in a guy. I hope your owner is a cutie.
Sanosuke arrived at around four in the afternoon and inquired about his dog. The assistant named Kamatari lead him in a room where Notaro is confined.
Sensing Sano's presence Notaro looked up at him and warmly greeted him despite the obvious weakness. He went up to the dog and started patting his head.
"Hey there buddy, I'm now here, you are going to be alright." Sanosuke said, patting the dog.
Megumi saw the situation and her heart melted. Not wanting to interrupt the moment between the two. Megumi just contentedly observed the owner's back. I hope this one's a looker. She thought.
"May I interrupt you Mr. Sagara? I'm Dr. Takani, Notaro's veterinarian."
To Megumi's surprised, the owner of the dog is no other than the guy who kissed her without permission. The guy she has been fantasizing just a few minutes ago.
"Hello...I'm so glad to meet you again." Sanosuke grinned at her.
