Sigh. Mina lay down on her couch and stared at the
ceiling, her mind only on Kento.
Mina laughed, thinking the idea was awesome and then,
"wait a minute, I can't cook!" she muttered.
Elsewhere, up, up and way up in the sky.
"Um, Lita," Sage mumbled, "I'm glad you over your fear of flying, but isn't this a bit too far?"
"Oh, come on, Sage, where's your sense of
adventure?" she teased.
"Okay, ma'am, we're high enough," the pilot said, "you can jump now."
"Alright!" Lita said, standing up and tugging on
Sage's hand, "come on, this will be fun!"
"Lita, are you sure this is a good idea?" Sage questioned, "People have died from skydiving, you know."
"Are you afraid we'll get struck by lightning?" she joked, slihglty pushing him.
"Here we go, Sage," Lita said, "1-2-3!" she pushed Sage out first.
"Bombs away!" Lita cried and jumped down.
"You pushed me!" he cried, looking at the ground.
"You wouldn't have jumped, Sage, it was the only way to get you off the plane!"
"Yes I would!
"Don't look at the ground,
Sage, look at me."
Sage slowly raised his eyes at her.
"Don't be scared, Sage," she told him, "hey, if it makes you feel any better, we'll take everyone with us next time, how does that sound?"
"Okay," he mumbled, "but before we do that, can we just go to the movies or something?"
"Sure, if that's what you want." She pretended to let go of his hands and he freaked out, "I was only kidding, Sage, I'll never let you go."
He smiled, "I'll never let go of you."
"Hey, wanna go again?" she asked.
"No!" he shouted.
Lita laughed, "Oh, Sage, I love you," and she fell upon his chest.
After wondering where the heck Lita could be, Mina slammed
down the phone.
"Hello?" Serena's brother answered.
"Hi, Sammy, is Serena around?"
Sammy looked at his sister who was watching TV and munching on potato chips, "Nope, sorry, Serena's not home."
"What?" Serena erupted, "Gimme that phone,
you brat!" Serena grabbed for the phone and cleared her voice.
"Hey Serena, this is Mina," Mina said, "listen, I need a favor."
"What is it?" Serena asked.
"I want to cook a nice dinner for Kento.
"Oh, that's so sweet!" Serena squealed.
"But I can't cook!"
"Well, I can't help you there," Serena said,
"I burn everything.
"Can your mom help me?" Mina asked, "It's urgent!"
"Sorry, she's shopping right now."
"Great…" Mina groaned, "well, what do I do now?"
"Wait a sec, Ami told me Sai is Kento's best friend and he likes to cook."
"Guys can cook?" Mina mumbled.
"Yeah!" Serena said, "Sai makes sandwiches for her all the time…Mmmm," Serena moaned, "sandwiches, that sounds good!"
"Well, where is
"Hey, he's dating
Ami," Serena said, "not me!
"Okay, I'll call Ami, thanks, Serena."
"No problem," Serena said, "oh and I want to
"Um, sure, you got it!" Mina mumbled and hung
"Hello?" Ami answered, she was doing her homework, as usual.
"Ami!" Mina cried,
"Why do you need to speak to Sai?" she asked.
"I need to ask him a favor."
"Well, he's not here," Ami said, "he's surfing at the beach with Kento.
"He's with Kento?!" she cried.
"Yes," Ami replied, "they're best friends."
"Uh-oh," Mina mumbled.
"What's wrong?" Ami asked.
"I want to cook a nice dinner for Kento but I can't
"Sai would defianantly help you," Ami said, "I'll go down there and tell him."
"No, wait, if Kento's there
he'll figure it out.
"I wouldn't tell Kento a thing, Mina," Ami told her.
"Wait," Mina said, "I'll come down to your house and we can go together."
"Why?" Ami asked.
"I'll tell you when I get there…oh and you should change into a swimsuit."
"What do you mean?" Ami questioned, "I really need to finish my homework."
Ami couldn't' say no, "okay."
"Thanks Ami, you're the best!"
Moments later, Mina arrived at Ami's house dressed in a red
and yellow bikini.
"No problem," Ami said, wearing a blue one piece
with black shorts and a white T-shirt on top.
"Ami, you're a bit overdressed," Mina said.
Ami blushed, "I don't want Sai to see me in a bathing suit…I'm
too shy! And he's about as shy as I am!
Mina smiled, "well, this is a new swimsuit and I want Kento to see it!" she took her hand, "come on, everything will fine!"
Just as Ami said, Sai was with Kento surfing at the
"Hi, Mina, what are you doing here?" Kento said
when he came to the shore.
"Ami told me you where here," she said, tapping his chin, "I just bought this new swimsuit and I wanted you to see it."
"You look great!"
"Sai, are you alright?" Ami asked, walking into
"Yes," he replied, trying not to stare at the
bathing suit she wore underneath her wet T-shirt and shorts.
"So, where's the gang?" Kento asked Mina as she sat down on the beach.
"They didn't come," she replied, "I'm not sure where Lita is."
"Oh, that's right," then he started laughing.
"What?" Mina asked.
Kento couldn't finish, "Sai--you tell her!"
"Tell her what?" Sai asked.
"Where Sage and Lita are," he laughed.
"Oh, yeah," he smiled, "Lita dragged Sage to go skydiving."
"Skydiving?!" Ami and Mina cried.
"That's right," Sai said, "poor guy."
Mina tried to think of a way to get to Sai without making
"Ami, could you come with me?" she asked, "I'm parched, let's get some water!"
"Oh, I'll get it for you baby," Kento offered.
"That's okay," she said, "I'll be right back."
Mina pulled Ami to the water stand, "two waters,
please," she told the person behind the counter.
"What's up?" Ami asked.
"Can you me a favor?" Mina asked, "it's extremely important!"
"I need you to keep Kento distracted for me," she said.
"You want me to destract Ken---" she nearly cried when Mina placed her hand over her mouth.
"Shh," she said, "I can't ask Sai to show me how to cook right in front of Kento, so you need to keep him busy."
"You want me to keep him preoccupied?" she asked, raising an eyebrow, "well, how? Tutor him?"
"Whatever!" Mina said, "it might be a while because I don't even know how to make toast!"
"That's pretty bad, a four year old knows how to make toast," Ami said.
"It was a figure of speech!" Mina muttered.
Ami smiled, "I was joking.
When they returned to the guys, they found Kento catching
some rays on the shore and Sai making a sandcastle.
"That's very good, Sai," Mina whispered to him, "can you make anything else?"
"Thanks, like what?" Sai asked.
"Like dinner," Mima mumbled.
"Huh?" he muttered.
Ami tried not to blush or make Sai jealous and walked to Kento, "it's bad for your skin if you stay out in the sun too long." She stated clearly.
"Huh?" Kento groaned, half asleep.
He's about to fall asleep, Ami thought, he won't notice Mina and Sai leaving.
"Can you do me a favor?" Mina asked.
"What is it?"
Mina knelt down, "I want to cook a dinner for Kento but I don't know how to cook."
Sai grinned, "Is that why you came to me?"
Mina nodded, "I would really appreciate it if you showed me how."
"No problem, I'll just tell Kento and…"
"Wait," she said,
"I want it to be a surprise.
Poor Ami, Sai thought, she's
going to wonder how I ever became Kento's best friend.
Ami sighed and tried to think of a way to keep Kento
"Oh, Mina, that feels good."
"You know, you really should put oil on before you lay
out in the sun," Ami stated, changing the subject, "the sun can cause
"It can?" Kento mumbled and then he sat up and
groaned, "it can give a headache too…hey, where did Mina go?
"Oh, yeah," she said, "Well, when we went to the refreshment stand she told me she had to do something important."
"What?" Kento said.
Ami didn't want to lie but she had to think of something, "it's kind of a project."
"For school?" Kento asked.
"It's more of a personal project," Ami said.
"Where did Sai go?" Kento asked.
"He had something important to do," Ami mumbled, then looked at her fingernails to think of something to say, "Hey, do you know that jello makes your nails and hair grow?"
"Huh?" Kento raised an eyebrow.
"I'm studying to become a doctor," Ami said, "hey, how are you in your studies?"
"Not good," he mumbled.
"I can help you study!" she said and stood
"Wait a minute," he mumbled, "what's going
Mina let Sai change in the bathroom as she changed in her
"I don't think he has a favorite," Sai said, "He'll eat just about everything."
"Everything?" she mumbled, "that could be anything!"
"Relax," Sai said, "I'll show you something
Mina washed her hands and put an apron on, "I wished Mom showed me how to cook more when we were living in England."
"You're from England?" Sai asked.
"That's right, Kento never told you?" Mina asked.
Sai shook his head, "He told you I was from England, right?" Sai asked.
Mina laughed, "Sai, I can tell just by your accent that you're from England."
Sai turned the oven on and sprayed a frying pan.
"Okay, you try it," Sai said.
"Well, here it goes," she tried it and the
contents went in her face.
Sai tried not to laugh, "not bad for a
"See, you divide this by this and multiply by
this," Ami said, pointing in the book as she stood behind Kento, "and
then you subtract by this and add by this.
Kento moaned, "No."
Ami sighed, "I'm not supposed to tell you."
"What is it?" he asked and then he gasped, "is Mina cheating on me?"
"Then what?" he demanded.
"It's supposed to be a surprise," Ami said.
She nodded, "yeah, she wants to do something special for you."
"Really, what is it?"
"If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise, would
it?" she joked and took another book, "Okay, enough of math, let's
work on science.
Kento sighed; oh, this is going to be a long day.
"And then you add the sauce to the noodles and," Sai instructed as Mina was trying not to pull her hair out.
"Am I doing this right?" she asked with a worried look.
"Yes, you're doing just fine," Sai smiled,
"don't worry, Kento will like it.
"Me neither, that's for sure," she said with a
"Anytime," Sai said, "I get tired for cooking
Mina fought back a giggle, "yeah, I just hope he likes
it." She yawned.
"It's not so bad," he told her and helped her bake
"Listen, Ami," Kento said, "what's the point of all this?"
"You want to do better in school, don't you?" she asked.
She cut him off, "education is very important Kento."
"It's nice of you to help me but I didn't ask for any
"I'm not at all attracted to you, Kento," Ami said.
"You're not?" he sounded surprised and a bit hurt.
She shook her head, "I know very well how much Mina
likes you and I feel the same way about Sai.
Kento stood up, "what's the surprise?
"Didn't I just tell you that if I revealed the surprise then it wouldn't be a surprise?" Ami reminded.
"I don't like surprises," he said.
"It's a good surprise," Ami promised.
"Well, I don't really want to wait to see if I like the surprise or not so I'm just going to chance it," he started for the door.
"Wait, Kento!" Ami cried, "We haven't gotten to English yet!"
"English…" Kento murmured, "Now I get
"Kento, no!" she shouted after him, "Don't kill Sai!" she put her hands up to her mouth, "What am I supposed to do?"
"Can you give me another lesson tomorrow?" Mina asked.
"Of course," Sai said.
She giggled and hugged him, nearly knocking him over, "Oh thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Sai pried her off, "y-you're welcome."
"Can you check the brownies for me?" she asked as
she went to answer it.
"Mina, get Sai out of there now!"
"Kento's on his way there!"
"Huh?" Sai mumbled, hearing Mina say Ami's
"I tried to keep him as long as possible," Ami
explained, "but he thinks you're cheating on him with Sai!
"Uh oh," she raised her eyes up to Sai, who was
washing his hands again.
Sai raised an eyebrow.
"Anything, just hurry before Kento gets there!" Ami screamed.
"Okay, Ami, nothing is going to happen, just calm down." she hung up.
Hearing Ami's name and the tone of Mina's voice when she was talking to Ami, Sai walked up to Mina, "Is there something wrong with Ami?" he asked.
"You can go now, thanks for your help," she took
off her apron and started to take off his right when Kento barged
"You!" Kento pointed right at his English best friend, "you, you, English brat!"
"I'm getting tired of you calling me that," Sai mumbled as he stepped away from Mina and removed his apron and placed it on the counter.
"I should call you more than that but Mina's
present!" he followed him into the kitchen, about to badmouth him and beat
the living daylights out of him.
"Hey!" Sai snarled, "What's the matter with you, Kento?"
"So this is why Ami tortured me with Math and
Science," Kento said, "I'm so glad I left before we got to English!
"Stop it!" Mina screamed.
"You're not?" Kento mumbled, surprised and a bit
hurt, "well, what's wrong with him?
"Is this the surprise?" Kento demanded.
"Well, it's not a surprise anymore," Mina said.
"Hey, what's cooking?" Kento asked, sniffing.
"The surprise," Sai pointed to the stove.
"You did that?" Kento asked with a grin, "for me?"
"Oh, that's nice of you, Sai," Kento grabbed him in a big bear hug, "I'm sorry…"
Sai's eyes almost popped out of his head, "too tight!"
Mina smiled, "I think I can take it from here, thanks
"You're welcome, Mina," Sai smiled back and stepped out, "see you later."
"I feel like a complete idiot," Kento groaned. "I'm sorry."
"Well, it was crazy for you to think I was cheating on
you with Sai," Mina said.
"So what's for dinner?" Kento asked, licking his lips, "I'm starving!"
Mina wrapped her arms around him, "right this way, sir,
I'll lead you to your table," she backed up with her arms still around his
neck. "Close your eyes.
"I just said I was starving," Kento laughed as he
closed his eyes.
"Here we are," she said, pulling the lid off the tray, "Noodles with chicken and veggies!" she had an arm around his shoulders and he wrapped an arm around her waist.
"Oh, wow!" Kento cried, "thanks, Mina."
"Now, tell me the truth," she said as she took a
fork and twirled it in the veggies, "does it taste okay?" she fed it
Kento chewed on it ponderingly.
"I knew it!" she wailed.
"I was kidding, Mina," Kento said, "it was delicious."
He turned her around and kissed her forehead.
"Sure you can!" she took a giant glob of the noodles
and popped them on his plate.
"Oh, I'll defiantly save some room for that!"
Mina smiled and looked at her plate.
Kento smiled and lifted up her face.
"I don't think she'll mind," Kento said and
continued to eat his dinner. "Thanks for dinner, Mina," he looked up
to see her still asleep.
Mina made some snorting noises.
"Don't get up," Kento grinned, "I'll get
"I'm Saiwerrrr…." she groaned.
"I'll eat it for you if you're not hungry," he said.
"I'm Saiwerrr V…" she repeated.
He took a bite of a brownie, "oh, yummy brownies, Mina!"
"In the name of Venus…"
"Mina looks so pretty when she's asleep," Kento said admiringly as he nibbled on his noodles and brownie, "and she makes good noodles and brownies too…Mina's so nice…She's so good to me," Kento's eyes bulged and stood up as he threw his arms up, "I'M THE LUCKIST MAN ALIVE!"
Mina snorted and woke up drowsily, "d'you say somefing Kwentwooo?" she moaned.
"Um, no," Kento said, "just go back to sleep, sweetie."
Mina cocked her head back and continued to snore and talk in her sleep.
"Mina's so beautiful," Kento said, returning to
Sai found Ami rushing down the steps from her home, "I need to get there before Kento kills him."
"Kills who?" Sai asked.
"Kills Sai," she replied, unaware of the man in
front of her, "Sai!" she jumped up and threw her arms around
"Kento's always threatening to kill me one of these days but he never will," Sai said.
She stepped back and he wiped a few tears away from her
"Skip the homework for tonight," he proposed.
"It's Extra Credit!" she cried.
"Ami, you're the most brilliant girl I know," he
said, "you don't' need extra credit.
"Well, I don't like to brag, but I have the best grades than anyone in most of my classes," she said, blushing.
"I'm all warmed up teaching Mina how to cook.
"Oh, you don't have to do that," Ami said, "I can make myself a sandwich."
"You know Ami," Sai said, "You should eat a
more balanced diet.
"There're easy to eat when I study," she
"Come on," Sai tugged on her arm, "I'll cook
something special for you!
Because Sai was a more skilled cook than Mina, he didn't
fall asleep onto his plate.
Sai never felt more proud to be Kento's best friend.
