A week later, Yukimura walked into his singing class. The class didn't have desks like normal schools did. Instead, they got to sit on luxurious furnitures and got to use luxurious, shiny tables in case they needed to write stuff down. He walked to his friends who were in the same singing group as him, which were Masamune, Kiyomasa, and Mitsunari.
"Hey Sanada!" shouted Masamune. "We missed ya!"
"Hey," he replied. They all did handshakes with him and when the teacher came, they had to sing "do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti" five times alone when it was their turn. After that, the teacher gave them each a lyric and they had to sing it in a small glass room as big as a bathroom. Yukimura got "Boyfriends Hate Me" by Space Cowboy, Masamune got "Dirty Little Secret," by The All-American Rejects, Kiyomasa got "DJ Got Us Falling In Love Again" by Usher, and Mitsunari got "Don't Wake Me Up" by Chris Brown.
"Man, why do I gotta sing this song?" said Yukimura.
"What are you talking about, Yukimura?" said Masamune. "If anything, that song suits you just right!" Mitsunari and Kiyomasa laughed and agreed.
"It so doesn't suit me!" stormed Yukimura. "I'm not a girlfriend stealer."
"But you so attract many females, whether they're single, taken, or married," said Kiyomasa, smiling.
"Tch," said Yukimura, shaking his head. "Can I get a different song?"
"No," said the teacher. "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."
"Yeah," agreed Kiyomasa. "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."
"Excuse me?" Yukimura said to him. They all laughed and the teacher made them go into their own studio to practice.
"You have about thirty minutes to practice singing the first verse with the chorus," said the teacher. "And after that, each and every one of you will sing to the class." Yukimura shook his head and looked at the lyrics.
"I don't even wanna sing you, you know that?" he said, looking at the paper meanly. "But I will, just so I won't look stupid when it's my turn to sing." He began practicing and in thirty minutes, everyone regrouped.
"Okay, the first one to go up is Masamune," said the teacher.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah!" shouted Masamune, walking in front of the class. His friends cheered for him as the music started playing. When it was time to sing, he began singing. He nodded his head up and down to look cool. "Let me know that I've done wrong, when I've known this all along. I go around a time or two, just to waste my time with you. Tell me all that you've thrown away. Find out games you don't wanna play. You are, the only one that needs to know. I'll keep you my dirty little secret, dirty little secret. Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret, just another regret. Hope that you can keep it, my dirty little secret."
"Whoo!" shouted the class.
"Very nice, Date!" shouted the teacher. Masamune walked back and did handshakes with his group. "Choose the next person to go up."
"I choose Kiyomasa to go next!" Masamune said, without hesitation. Kiyomasa smiled and walked to the front of the class. The music started playing and he began singing.
"So we back in the club, get that bodies rocking from side to side, side, side to side. Thank god the week is done. I feel like a zombie gone back to life, back, back to life. Hands up, and suddenly, we all got our hands up. No control, of my body. Ain't I seen you before? I think I remember those eyes, eyes, eyes. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Cause baby tonight, the DJ got us falling in love again. Yeah, baby tonight, the DJ got us falling in love again. So dance, dance, like it's the last, last night of your life, life, gonna get you right. Cause baby tonight, the DJ got us falling in love again."
"Good job, Kato!" shouted the teacher. "Who shall go up next?"
"Mitsunari shall go up next," he replied, smiling and walking back conceitedly. Mitsunari got up as they cheered for him. The music started playing and he began singing.
"Too much light in this window. Don't wake me up. Only coffee, no sugar, inside my cup. If I wake and you're here still, gimme a kiss. I wasn't finished dreamin', about your lips. Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up. Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up. Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up. Don't wake me up. Don't wake me. Don't wake me up. Don't wake me up. Don't wake me up, yeah. Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up. Don't wake me up. Don't wake me."
"Whooooo!" shouted everyone.
"Magnificient!" complimented the teacher. "Who do you choose to go next?" Mitsunari turned and smiled at Yukimura. Yukimura shook his head and walked to the front of the class. Everyone had a big smile on their face. The sound ticked four times as he began singing.
"All the boyfriends hate me cause their girlfriends love me. They love me, they love me. They hate me cause they love me. And the boys can't stand it when their girls go crazy, go crazy, go crazy. That's why their boyfriends hate me. If you got a girlfriend, ooh ooh, that's too, too bad, too bad. And if your girlfriend loves me more than you, too bad, too bad. If you got a girlfriend, ooh ohh, that's too, too bad, too bad. And if your girlfriend loves me more than you, too bad, too bad. She noticed me from the very first time that I walked in. She whispered in my ear that I look so much hotter than him. Doesn't matter if she meant it or not, no. All I wanna do is drink another shot, oh. At the very same time she says that same line to you, my friend, so oh. If your girlfriend's following me then don't feel bad, no no. Cause there's a million girls out here you never had, woah. Don't be mad cuz she hittin on me, no. Go and find another girl like her though. At the very same spot where the girls them hot, way-oh. All the boyfriends hate me cause their girlfriends love me. They love me, they love me. They hate me cause they love me and the boys can't stand it when their girls go crazy, go crazy, go crazy. That's why their boyfriends hate me."
"Whooo! You go, Sanada!" shouted the class.
"Very outstanding, Yukimura!" shouted the teacher, clapping his hands many times...
Kunoichi and her grandmother walked into town to a market outside. They bought some vegetables and fruits. After that, they went to a Goodwill store to buy a few clothes. They took a different route home and stumbled upon a very creepy looking house. Her grandmother stopped and looked at it.
"Ohh, grandma, this place is creepy," Kunoichi said, hiding behind her. She had bad vibes about that house.
"About a decade ago, a man murdered his wife and son in that house," her grandmother began.
"Grandma! Not right here!" she shouted, pulling her grandma away. She waited until they were almost home to hear the rest of the story. "So what happened in that creepy house, grandma?"
"A man, Saeki, misunderstood his wife. He found her journal and read about a time where she liked a guy from her school. That was before she met him but he misunderstood and thought she was seeing the guy she wrote about, so he killed her and stuffed her in the attic. He also drowned his six year old son in the bathtub and taped his corpse in the closet. He even killed the boys pet cat," said her grandmother.
"What? That's so horrible," she replied, looking down and feeling sorry for the woman and her son.
"Rumors say that if you set foot into that house, you will be cursed and the dead mother will come after you," said her grandmother, as she held on to her arms really tight. "Don't you ever set foot into that yard. Do you understand?"
"Yes, grandma. I will never set foot into that haunted house," she replied. She had goosebumps all around her...
Gracia skipped happily around town and bought many cute Hello Kitty stuff. Then she walked into Gucci and bought two purses worth three thousand dollars each. One was purple and the other was pink. She smiled and walked out of the store and began walking off.
A very creepy fourty year old man saw her coming out of Gucci on the other side of the street and flinched. His eyes opened widely and his mouth made an "O" shape. He quickly dropped his food and began running with a hunch back across the street after her. "Ohh, so pretty! I'm going to capture her and make her my wife! Ohh, such young meat will be, ohh so delicious!"
Gracia made a left turn into an alley when she got tackled by someone out of nowhere.
"Ahhhhh!" she screamed, as the old man covered her mouth. He lifted her skirt and saw her purple underwear.
"Now you are mine!" he shouted, holding her down. He tried to pull off her underwear until a man pulled him off of her. The guy punched the old man as he fell and got up really fast.
"What business do you have with this young lady? Why are you doing that to her?" said the guy fiercely. "If you don't want trouble, you better run before I catch you and report you to the police!" The old man ran away really fast and disappeared from their sight. The guy turned to Gracia and helped her up. "Are you ok? Are you hurt?"
"No, I'm okay," she replied, dusting herself.
"You should be more careful around here. There are a lot of bad people. You shouldn't be alone," he told her. She nodded in agreement.
"Thank you for helping me. What's your name?" she asked him.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa, little lady. You want to know my name?" he asked. She nodded happily.
"You saved me so I want to know who you are so I'll always remember you," she told him. He thought for a bit.
"Well then. You can call me umm, Saeki. That's my name. Saeki," he said, lying to her. His real name was Magoichi Saika and he had quite a history.
"Thank you for saving me, Saeki! You're one of my heroes now!" she shouted, happily. Magoichi saw her bags from the ground and picked it up for her. He noticed two Gucci bags and knew that the girl was somehow rich. He immediately took an interest in her.
"So, what's your name, little lady?" he asked her.
"Gracia," she replied, smiling. "I was on my way to a friend's house so I'll get going now. Thanks for saving me, Saeki. Hopefully we meet again soon!" He really wanted to take some of her money because she was most likely rich.
"Whoa, I can't let you travel alone," he said to her. "I'll escort you to make sure that no one harms you." Gracia smiled.
"Okay. Sounds great," she said, waiting for him. They got inside a taxi and Gracia told the taxi driver to go to Tokyo Country Lane. She smiled shyly and turned away from Magoichi because she had a little crush on him. She daydreamed about Magoichi's heroic rescue, only except they were in armors and he was a prince while she was a princess.
While she daydreamed, Magoichi looked at her and she had her hand purse in between them. His heart beated fast because he wanted to take her money. He thought she might be quite stupid and wouldn't notice so he reached for her purse and took the first bill he felt and quickly closed her purse. He sneakily looked at the money he took and it was a five hundred dollar bill. He quickly stuffed it in his pocket.
"Excuse me, I think I'm going to throw up," he said, making sounds like he was going to throw up. The taxi driver quickly pulled over.
"Saeki? Are you okay?" Gracia asked, turning to him. He got out of the car and forced himself to throw up some sushi he ate earlier. Gracia quickly ran out to pat his back.
"I think I'm carsick. I usually get carsick when I get inside cars. That's why I prefer traveling on foot," he told her. "You go ahead to your friend's house. It was nice meeting you Gracia. Hopefully we meet again soon." Gracia had a worrysome face.
"Well, okay," she said, taking out some money and handing it to him. "Here's some money to buy yourself some porridge and medicine." He took the money and noticed that she gave him a thousand dollars.
"Sweet!" he shouted with a big smile. He quickly stopped and pretended to look sick again. "I mean, it's okay. You don't have to."
"No, I want to. It's the least I can do for you," she said, smiling. "Take care okay? Hope to see you again, Saeki!"
"Yeah, you too," Magoichi said, as she got back inside the taxi. They waved bye to each other as the taxi driver drove away. He smiled and looked at the money. "Magoichi, you are a genious." He then walked around and bought some food with it. Then he went to a casino and lost nine hundred dollars to a business man. He looked down and walked out of the casino. "Stupid casino. Stupid money. Stupid business man. Why doesn't anything ever work out for me?"...
Meanwhile, the taxi driver took Gracia to Kunoichi's house.
"Wait here. I'll be right back," she told the taxi driver. She took her shopping bags with her and knocked on Kunoichi's door. Kunoichi opened the door and was so excited to see her.
"Hey Gracia!" she shouted, giving her a hug. "What brings you here? Come inside."
"I wanted to know if you wanted to hang out," Gracia told her, smiling and going inside her house.
"Oh, I'm short on money," Kunoichi told her.
"It's okay. Daddy gave me lots of money so we can hang out," Gracia said proudly. "What do you say?" Kunoichi thought for a bit.
"Are you sure?" she asked.
"Of course! We're friends right? That's what friends do for each other," Gracia replied. "Put on your shoes and let's go!"
"Okay," Kunoichi said, smiling. She went to put on her shoes and told her grandma that she was going to hang out with Gracia.
"And this is for you," Gracia said, handing her the pink Gucci purse. Kunoichi's jaws dropped.
"What? Are you sure?" she asked.
"Yeah," she replied. Kunoichi gave her a big hug as they walked into the taxi. The taxi driver drove them back into town and Gracia paid the taxi driver. Both girls went to many stores and bought many souvenirs. Then they went to watch a funny movie and after that, they bought some hamburgers, fries, and soda from McDonalds.
"So where are we going eat this?" Kunoichi asked Gracia. A city bus tour came and parked close to them.
"In there!" Gracia shouted, looking at the bus. "Let's go!" They both got on the bus. "One round of city tour please!" she told the bus driver. They both walked to the back, found an empty seat, and sat down. The bus began moving.
"I've never been on a bus before!" Kunoichi shouted happily. She opened her hamburger and took a bite from it. "And I've never ate this before either! It's so yummy!"
"Really?" Gracia asked. She opened her hamburger and took a bite too.
"Yeah," Kunoichi replied. "You're a really good friend, Gracia! I'm glad I met you."
"You're a good friend too," Gracia said, smiling as they both hugged each other. She noticed someone sitting across from them that put his head down and looked depressed. "Excuse me, sir. Are you okay?" she asked. He turned and she immediately recognized him. It was Magoichi. "Oh my god!" she shouted, looking at him. "Are you okay? What happened?"
Magoichi flinched when he saw Gracia. He quickly made up a story. "I got robbed. Someone beat me up and stole all the money you gave me," he told her. Kunoichi minded her own business and hummed while eating.
"Oh no! That's bad!" Gracia shouted. "Should we take you to the hospital, Saeki?" Kunoichi immediately swallowed her food when she heard that name.
"Saeki?" she shouted, turning to him. He looked at her, pretending to be sad. "Did you murder your wife?!"
"Murdered your wife?!" Gracia shouted, dropping her hamburger and looking at him with shock.
"Murdered my wife?!" Magoichi asked, sitting up normally. "What?"
"And stuffed her in the attic?!" Kunoichi shouted, meanly.
"Stuffed her in the attic?!" Gracia said, confused.
"Stuffed her in the attic?!" Magoichi shouted. "What? I don't even-"
"And did you murder you son?!" Kunoichi shouted.
"Murdered your son?!" stormed Gracia.
"Murdered my son?!" yelled Magoichi. He was so confused. "What? No! I don't-"
"And taped him shut in the closet?!" shouted Kunoichi.
"Taped him shut in the closet?!" asked Gracia.
"Taped him shut in the closet? What are you-" Magoichi said, getting interrupted again.
"And killed his cat?!" shouted Kunoichi.
"Killed his cat?!" repeated Gracia.
"Killed his cat? No! I don't know-" said Magoichi.
"And it's been years now and you finally miss them and want them back in your life? Do you regret it? Huh? Is that why you look so sad?" shouted Kunoichi. The bus driver stopped the bus and kicked all three of them off and drove away. "See what you did?! You got us kicked off the bus, you murderer!" she shouted. Gracia and Magoichi looked behind her and they looked really scared. "What?!" she said, turning around and seeing the haunted house earlier. She quickly screamed, grabbed Gracia, and hid behind Magoichi.
"Smart move, ladies," Magoichi said to them. "This is one of the most haunted houses in all of Japan. You do not want to take a single step closer to it."
"Of course it's one of the most haunted houses in all of Japan! You murdered your wife and son and his cat in there!" shouted Kunoichi. "And now it's cursed!"
"What?!" shouted Magoichi, looking at the house. "Is that what you think? Is that what you were talking about? You think I was the one who murdered them?"
"No! I don't think so because I know so!" said Kunoichi. "Are you ready to confess now?"
"Confess what? I didn't even-" began Magoichi.
"Confess that you murdered your wife, son, and his cat in there?!" shouted Kunoichi.
"Would you stop that?!" shouted Magoichi, getting really angry. Both girls became scared of him. "Look. I don't have a wife and I don't have a son. I do not own a cat and I did not murder anyone, so will you please stop accusing me of murdering them?!"
"Wait...So you didn't murder anyone?" asked Kunoichi.
"No," replied Magoichi. "The man that killed his wife, his son, and his son's cat is long dead."
"Dead?!" shouted Kunoichi.
"Dead?!" shouted Gracia. Magoichi nodded his head.
"He killed himself out here not too long after he killed them. He actually died right here where we're standing," he said, as they looked at each other. A chill ran up their spines as they screamed and ran all the way downtown...
Legendary Heat got on an elevator from the fourth floor and went down to the first floor of the singing department. They walked out and ran into Tokyo Dolls.
"Hey, Hey, Hey!" shouted Masamune, as they all hugged one another. "Where are you guys headed?"
"We're heading to the dancing department to dance Beyonce's song "Partition"," said Koshosho. "Do you guys wanna see? We're still rehearsing and on Saturday, we're going to Chicago to perform."
"Sure," they replied. They all walked together to the dancing department and went into a big room with a giant mirror in it. All the girls wore a tank top and a booty short with Nikes. Kaihime stood in the middle, Koshosho stood to her right, and Ina stood to her left. They made a tiny triangle. The guys went to sit down to watch them rehearse. The song began playing and Kaihime danced by herself for a little while first. Then the other two started dancing. They popped their chest and they twerked a bit and moved their bodies a lot. Legendary Heat thought they were very sexy. When they finished, they clapped.
"That...was so SEXY!" Kiyomasa shouted, smiling. Tokyo Dolls smiled and thanked them. They rehearse for an hour and thirty minutes and then they decided to eat out at a luxury buffet. They took a limousine and when they came out, many people ran to them and tried to touch them.
"Yukimura! We love you!" shouted a group of girls. Many people screamed all of their names and wanted their autographs but their bodyguards and security guards blocked them. They walked inside the luxury buffet where they got escorted to their seats. They all chose a drink and went to get their food.
After they ate, they went back to the school. Everyone walked ahead except for Yukimura and Kaihime. They walked to the basketball courts because Kaihime wanted to talk to him.
"Do you remember when we went to San Francisco?" Kaihime asked him, smiling. She held on to his right arm. Yukimura thought about it and played the scene in his head...
It was a beautiful, snowy day in San Francisco, about two years ago. The beautiful couple, Yukimura and Kaihime, held each other's hand and walked along the Golden Gate Bridge. It was their very first date after knowing each other since Kindergarten. After all those years, Yukimura came to his senses and finally asked Kaihime to be his girlfriend. She was an amazing friend and he wanted to keep her in his life forever. They had a great time in San Francisco and just when they were about to have their first kiss, his mother called and told him that she and his dad were officially getting divorced on television worldwide. It hurt him so much that he crumbled to the floor and cried. He didn't want to deal with all those negativity in his life so he broke up with Kaihime...
"Yeah. I remember," he replied to her.
"Do you remember what you promised?" she asked him. He thought about his promise to her after they broke up...
"I can't deal with this. I really need some time alone and I feel like this isn't the right time to be dating, Kaihime. I'm sorry," he told her.
"No. I'm going to stand by you, through thick and thin. That's what I'm here for. Please, just let me be there for you. I can't stand seeing you hurt," Kaihime replied, holding his hands.
"I know it's hard for you but it's the best thing for me right now," he told her. "But I promise that when I'm ready to be with someone again, you'll be my first priority. Don't be sad, okay?"...
"Kai," he began, making her let got of his hand. "Please. I'm just not ready yet."
"Why not?" Kaihime asked. "It's been two years. I'm not trying to rush you but how much time do you need?"
"I'm sorry. I just can't," he replied, as he began walking to his dorm. He thought about the things that were happening to him lately. His mom just started filming a new love game show, his dad has officially declared him the next President of the Sanada Company, and his brother Nobuyuki just recently moved to New York. His family was always busy and never had time for him. That's why he stayed in his dorm often. And pretty soon, his singing group was going to perform five songs at a school concert in Berlin with hardcore dance choreographies. It was all just too much for him right now and almost everything he does got put in the media. "It's getting late. You should go inside," he said, looking at her. Then he resumed walking back to his dorm. He felt really bad and thought that Kaihime deserved so much better than him.
Kaihime watched as Yukimura walked back to his dorm. She looked down with tears in her eyes. "Yukimura, I will always wait for you no matter how long it takes. I will always be by your side," she said, looking at the stars. Then she walked to her dorm. Ina and Koshosho's dorms were all next door to each other and when Kaihime reached her dorm, she saw the both of them with their suitcases.
"Hey Kaihime," said Koshosho. "Me and Ina are going home for the weekend. Are you going home too, or are you staying here?" Kaihime thought for a bit.
"I guess I'll just go home too," she replied. She went into her dorm and packed the clothes that she wore in a suitcase. Then she locked her room and all three girls walked to their cars. "I'll see you girls on Monday. Drive home safe. Love ya," she told them.
"Okay. You too," said Koshosho. "Love ya!"
"Love you guys too!" said Ina. They all drove their separate ways...
"Why would you even think that I was the one who killed that woman and her child?" Magoichi said, as they walked through the beautiful, glowing streets of Tokyo. "Like, do I seriously look like a murderer to you?"
"Well, my grandma said that a guy named Saeki was the one that murdered them and I heard Gracia calling you Saeki so I assumed you were the one that killed them," said Kunoichi.
"Hey, just because my name is Saeki doesn't mean that I did it. There are a lot of people with the same names," he told her. Kunoichi thought about it and it was true.
"Ugh, I'm such an idiot!" she shouted, slamming her right hand over her head.
"And didn't your grandma tell you about how that Saeki guy killed himself after?" asked Magoichi. Kunoichi shook her head.
"No, she didn't," she replied. "I thought he was still alive and that's why I thought he was you. I'm so sorry."
"Apology accepted. And for the record, Saeki was that killer's last name," Magoichi told her.
"Ugh," she said, slamming her hand on her head again. Pretty soon it got dark and Magoichi departed from them. Gracia and Kunoichi took a taxi back to Kunoichi's house and after Kunoichi went into her house, Gracia took the taxi home.
