Keitaro's Fifth Worse Nightmare.
By: Daimyo Shi
Disclaimer: I don't own Love Hina, no how much I would like to. Or what I give to trade place with Keitaro.
Keitaro was coming home early from his Job with Seta.
[It was nice of Seta to give me the afternoon off, I have so few off lately. Perhaps I can take Naru to a movie or something.] thinks Keitaro as he bounds up the stairs up towards Hinata Sou. He opens the door and heads straight up the stairs. [Naru wanted to see Princess Diaries two, Not exactly the kind of film I like but I think it won't be too unbearable for me. It might even put Naru in a romantic mood.] thinks Keitaro as gets to Naru's door. He so lost in his own fantasy that he can't here the soft moaning from beyond Naru's door. Keitaro opens Naru's door and finds Naru and Kanako on Naru's futon. There clothing is strewn around the room as they caress each other. They don't even notice Keitaro until he screams! Keitaro take off crying.
"Huh? What was that?" Asks Naru.
"Oh no, that was Onii-chan!" says Kanako as she grabs a Yukata hang on handle of Naru's Closet and take off after Keitaro. Naru simple crabs her sheet and makes a make shift cloak from it.
Keitaro has made it to the end of the hall where he collapses into a heap. His tears are flowing like rivers down his face. Carefully both Naru and Kanako approach.
"Keitaro, I am sorry, I never meant for this to happen." says Naru is a soothing voice.
"Gomen, Onii-chan, I didn't mean to become involved with the woman that you loved. It just sort of happened." says Kanako.
"I . . ." stutters Keitaro before he breaks down again and sobs in the corner not looking at either girl.
"I don't know what to say . . . Gomen Keitaro." says Naru as she reaches to touch Keitaro.
"Don't Touch me! You betrayed me! To my own sister even!"screams Keitaro as he recoils from Naru's touch.
Naru rages inside for a moment before remember she caused this, it her fault, she was the one who asked Kanako to hide it from Keitaro for these many months. It was her who lead Keitaro along, making him think that everything was not going his way.
"Keitaro, I know it very hard to accept, I didn't mean for this to happen. None of it. I . . . never would have though that I would fall in love with your sister. I honestly just was buying time until I could figure a good way to break to you. Kanako want to tell you right away, since you value honesty so much. I was the one to conceal it from you. I never did it to hurt you Keitaro. I know that I haven't treated you the best, and I hit you a lot but I have developed a fondness for you, it just I not interested in being you girlfriend. I love Kanako." says Naru.
Kanako looks at her brother and feels a sharp pain in her chest, despite what Naru has said She still blames herself. She never should have agreed to go along with Naru's idea. She should have been honest.. Kanako gets down on her knees and bows until her forehead touches.
"Onii-chan, I will do anything you command to make this up to you." says Kanako in a respectful and sorry tone.
"Leave, me be." says Keitaro.
Kanako nods and gets up, she takes Naru by the hand. "Lets go. Please don't do anything rash Onii-chan, you are still my brother and I still care deeply about you." Kanako and Naru leave.
Keitaro sobs for a several more minutes before getting up. He heads down stairs and sees Kitsune on the coach in the TV area.
"Hey Keitaro, if you were any lowers you be dragging on the ground. What bothering you?" asks Kitsune.
Keitaro sits down next to Kitsune. "Naru and Kanako are . . ." Says Keitaro as fresh tears start coming down his face. He falls towards Kitsune and cries. Kitsune puts her arms around him.
"Are what?" asks Kitsune with a concerned tone.
"They . . . They are . . . Lovers." sobs Keitaro.
[Nani? How? Why? I never though Naru went that way! Damn she had me fooled!] thinks Kitsune as she strokes Keitaro's hair. "There, there Keitaro, there are other women out there in the world."
"I really though Naru was my Promise girl." sobs Keitaro.
"Nani? What promised girl?" asks Kitsune.
"When I was five years old, I knew a girl and I promise her that we would go to Todai together because she wanted to be happy, and Happy people go to Todai together." says Keitaro between sobs.
As Kitsune strokes Keitaro's hair. [So that why he was so focussed to go to Todai and get Naru. What was Naru thinking to betray him like this.] thinks Kitsune "it is alright Keitaro, I sure some where out there is a girl for you."
Keitaro doesn't say anything he simple sobs into Kitsune's chest complete unaware he in a place that several people would kill to be in.
"I tell you what, Keitaro I even help you, free of charge. You always been a good honest man. You didn't deserve this.' says Kitsune. [Lucky for me, I already got ideas on who hot for Keitaro. Now she I go with Mutsume or Shinobu.]
"You will? Thanks you, Kitsune . . . I don't know what to say."
"You don't have to thank me, In little ways you done a lot for me. I owe you anyway."
-chan, honorific means small or little often used between parents and children, sometime between friends can be use between lovers too.
-kun, Sort of a male version of Chan but more masculine often used between friends and older people to boys that they know. Kei-kun is a favourite of Mutsumi for Keitaro.
San is Mister or Miss, a polite way to address an inferior or an equal. Note that both this and sama are used with a family name which in Japan come first
kabuki is a style of theatre in Japan. It very lively and dynamic. Often actors faces are painted with make up.

Yukata a robe worn in the mostly summer time. Often made of cotton and considered less formal than Kimono. What westerns call Kimono is much more often like a Yukata than a true Kimono.
