Chapter VII

" Mr. Mikagami, I think we have a problem." a voice said into the phone. " Yes, I'm already aware and the situation is now being taken care of." Mr. Mikagami said in business like manner. "Just make sure your son doesn't interfere with our plans or the deal is off." then the line went dead.

Mr. Mikagami sighed a relief after that phone call. He needed to think and he need to do it fast but he was already tired. As he was massaging his temples, the phone rang again which disturbed his oncoming headache. He answered the phone on the third ring with an annoyed voice.

"Hello?" he said gruffly. "Hello, this is Mr. Sakoshita's secretary and Mr. Sakoshita would like to speak to Mr. Mikagami." a feminine voice asked from the other line. He was a little curious as to what that certain businessman would like to discuss with him so " Pls. hold on for a minute." after preparing himself , he went to answer the phone. " Hello, yes, good afternoon, this is Mr. Mikagami speaking, what can i do with you?"

As their conversation ended Mr. Mikagami coudn't help the trademark smirk-ala-Mikagami-style on his face. 'At long last my problem is solved, i can finally relax' he said to an empty room but had to shake his head as he muttered "Sorry Tokiya but it's for your own good" and went outside and closed the door with a click.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tokiya was alone in his room and was silently contemplating his situation with Fuuko. Earlier, he saw his brother and Fuuko went out but not before Raiha come to him and whispered " May the best man win brother.." and with a smirk went off and slung an arm around Fuuko's shoulder which set a scowl on Tokiya's face and went off.

He just finished working in the gym to work up his frustration and went to the shower room and took a very long bath. 'She's already engaged to your brother' his conscience told him ' But he's the one who issued the challenge and I'm not to back out from one' he smirked 'and if it's Fuuko were talking about, I'm ready to fight anyone' He's conscience is confusing him so with a curse he grabbed the soap, clenching it and throwed it forcefully on the other side of the wall.

After drying, he went to his room and sat down on the bed. 'Raiha must put two and two together and finally noticed his connection with Fuuko' he thought "Damn" he muttered. " But one's thing is for sure dear brother, you're bound to lose this game" he said with a smirk and with that turned of the lights and went to sleep.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raiha was surprised to see his childhood friend grew up to be this beauty. He coudn't help staring at her as she eats ice cream in their supposedly date.

Ofcourse, after that fainting incident, he carried her to her room then called her that evening to check up on her and asked her on a date in which her mother agreed for her. 'I mean what's a fiancee got to do right?' he thought ' At least this will be my start with her'

"Is there something on my face?" Fuuko asked innocently to Raiha. ' That's what good about her.' he returned to his thoughts 'She doesn't even know and not conscious of how she looks! I bet that's what Tokiya liked about her and chuckled when he remembered the glare he received when they were going out.

"What's so funny? First you stare at me then you laugh at me, what's your problem?" a furious Fuuko demanded an answer, her temper rising and was ready to go and leave him if he give a wrong answer.

But that temper just increased his interest in her. 'It rather unusual for such a face like hers to have that explosive temper.' he mused " Nothing, you're just cute" he teased and smirked at her when she scoffed and tried to turn away ' that's not the usual thing a girl do when he compliment them' he thought and was challenged even more. He brushed a thumb on some chocolate smeared on her mouth and brought it down on his own and licked it while looking directly in her eyes the whole time.

Fuuko coudn't take her eyes off his eyes, it's like he's charming her! 'Gods, he's such a womanizer!' she thought and coudn't fight the blush appearing on her cheeks. She looked away and tried to look for something...anything... to hide her embarassment. Fortunately for her they were in an entertainment park so there were many distractions to choose from.

Raiha let her chose on the place since it's been a while since he was back here and many things have changed. Her gaze went to the space shuttle (a rollercoaster) and pointed it to Raiha "Let's try that one!" she said with mirth in her voice much to his chagrin and grabbed his hand to run in the line.

As they finished riding the spaceshuttle, octopus, water log jam, and almost all the rides the place has to offer. They were tired to the bone and partially wet due to the water log jam they rode. They were laughing hard as they exited the amusement park. And then there was some glint in Fuuko's eyes so Raiha backed out a few steps raising his palms up in a what-are-you-planning motion. Then Fuuko launched at Raiha and tickled him. "hahah...hahaha... you won't get away from me! prepare to diiiieeee!" Raiha shouted at her as he run after her. Fuuko just squeeled and ran towards the car.

As they finished tickling each other, they sat on the car's hood for a moment to rest a little and gazed at the stars. Raiha noticed Fuuko shiver and went in the car to get his jacket. " Here, wear this." he gave Fuuko his jacket " Thank you,but what about you?" she asked as she put on the jacket and felt warm already. " Don't mind me" he said and just scooted closer to Fuuko. Fuuko didn't mind and let him come closer to her. "I've never felt happy." Raiha confessed to her. It's like they were closer now than ever so he felt light towards her and opened to her. " You know, I've never felt like a child again and because of you I felt like one. I don't need to look so serious and all... just wanna say to thank you." he finished and noticed her shiver again so he genlty wrap her arms around her " We'll both be warm this way." he said and chuckled when she just "Hmmmmmpph!" "Really! You're just... um .. I Don't know.. you haven't change" suddenly her voice was softer " and I missed you" and laid her head on his shoulder.

"I remember you always teasing me a tomboy when we were younger. Both you and sometimes your brother" she recalled "But you're not the tomboy now! I mean... who would mistaken you for a tomboy when you have curves like that? only some stupid and blind bloke would ever think that!" he teased " Uh huh.." was the only response he got. And after a few minutes he looked at Fuuko and saw that she was already asleep.

He gently brushed away a few strands of her hair away from her face and brushed her face as if she was a porcelain doll. And carrried her towards his car to drive her home.

Fuuko's parents were out again and only her nanny answered the door. The nanny gave him the directions to Fuuko's room and he went there carrying her bridal style to put her to bed.

He gently put her on the bed and covered her with her blanket. She stirred a few times murmuring things he coudn't understand but didn't wake up. 'I guess she's a heavy sleeper' he thought. He was still standing there looking at her when he slowly moved closer and kissed her on the lips. "Goodnight my angel" he whispered on her lips. And went away but not before kissing her again on her forehead. Then went away.

Raiha was in his room now thinking about Fuuko. He never expected things to be like this. He's only plan was to tease his brother but as he got to know Fuuko... he coudn't help getting attracted to her. She wasn't like Neon, his ex-girlfriend he left on the states. They were very different in all aspects. "She's different." he muttered. " Well, she's MY fiance anyway." "I'm sorry brother but I think you won't win this game" he said and then went to sleep.
