Author's note: I'm really sorrrrrrrrrrrryy for the long delay. I had so much stuff to do that I completely forgot about updating this fic. Well neways here's the last chapter. It's a bit short but I hope you enjoy it!
The footsteps were very close now. I heard a gentle noise of the window being pushed open. I could feel a pair of hands undoing my wrists and my feet, finally my blindfold was removed. Instinctively I turned around and a pair of bright blue eyes bored into mine. I gasped,
"TK! What...how...?" I wanted to ask him so many things but all I did was leap into his arms, my tears soaking his blue t shirt.
"What took you so long, you fool?" I asked him raising my head and looking at him.
"So that's the gratitude I get for rescuing you, do I?" he asked in pretend annoyance.
I smiled softly and said, "Sorry...you don't know haw happy I am to see you here. But how did you know where to find me?" I asked puzzled.
He showed me his cell phone and there was a message that said, "If you want to find your girlfriend come alone to the abandoned house behind the theatre at 8 tonight," I blushed on reading the part about the girlfriend thing and then glanced at my watch
"It's seven thirty, now"
"I just decided to make a change of plans, besides I think I have a hunch of who your kidnapper might be," he said
"So this was all meant for you and I am just bait?"
"Kinda like that." he said and then his expression changed into a look of seriousness, "I'm sorry, you got into this mess because of me,"
I laughed softly and replied, "Oh don't get so formal, I was the one that wished for adventure right? And besides, I knew you'd come to rescue me,"
A faint tint of red appeared in his cheeks and he looked away before saying, "Well we have no time to waste. Let's get out of here,"
Takeru tried the door and surprisingly it was open. "He didn't even lock the door!" said Hikari amazed, "Some kidnappers."
"Follow me," Takeru whispered to Hikari. She nodded and tiptoed after him. Just as they entered a huge dark room, somebody yanked Hikari from behind. She shrieked, "TK!"
Takeru whipped around, "Hikari!" he tried to clutch at her but was too late. The lights were suddenly and Takeru heard a voice from the corner of the room, "Long time no see,"
A man of about 30 yrs old stepped out of the shadows holding Hikari tightly with a gun pressed against her temple.
"You! You're or rather were my father's secretary, Kano Sasaki!" Takeru blurted forgetting that Hikari didn't know who he really was.
"That's right. I'm surprised you remember me," the man replied smirking.
"I had a feeling it would be you. But why did you do all this?" Takeru asked quite certain of the answer.
"Why? You ask me why?" the man asked incredulously while absently removing the gun he held against Hikari's forehead, "You know the answer to that question. I was supposed to be the manager of the company, but your father chose a 15 year old kid over me. You haven't the slightest idea of the humiliation I suffered because of that, Mr. Takeru Ishida!" he finished making Takeru wish that he hadn't asked that question. He glanced nervously at Hikari who expression was unreadable.
"Do you have any idea..." he went on.
"Hold it!" came a sudden sharp voice. Hikari wrenched herself free from the man partly taking advantage of the fact that he had removed the gun and partly due to her anger.
"Let me get this straight," she said half in a whisper as she walked towards him. He gulped as she suddenly grabbed his collar and yelled, "YOU ARE TAKERU ISHIDA!"
She forced him against the wall and quickly whispered in his ear, "Quick open the window, let's get out," Takeru didn't need to be told twice, in a flash of lightening he wrenched open the window and the two of them jumped on to the roof.
The man apparently startled by this sudden outburst quickly picked up his gun and hit the intercom button yelling instructions to his men to catch the two of them.
Takeru half dragging Hikari led her around the house towards the garden, "We have to jump," he said wondering if she was mad at him or not but fortunately for him Hikari who was scared of heights had temporarily forgotten her anger. She gulped clutching at his hand, "Do we have to?" she looked at him pleadingly, "I'm scared of heights," she added in an undertone looking a little flustered. "Well unless you want to go back and face them," he replied jerking a thumb over his shoulder towards the attic window. Hikari could hear the footsteps closing in on the window.
"No!" she replied shaking her head fiercely.
"In that case this is the only way," he replied suddenly dragging her close to him and scooping her up in his hands as though she was as light as feather.
"Wha...What are you doing?" Hikari stammered blushing furiously.
"Isn't that obvious?" he jumped off the roof onto the bushes below. Hikari screamed her lungs out as they plummeted towards the ground.
"Are you alright?" Takeru asked from underneath her.
"Yeah," she said jumping off him and brushing her skirt.
"Hey I'm sorry …."
"I DON'T WANT TO HEAR YOUR PATHETIC…." She yelled but never got to complete her sentence for her voice was drowned by loud sirens. (A/N; Imagine that!)
"What's that?" she asked distracted.
"Just the police," he replied smoothly. "Another one of my brilliant plans. I guessed that it was Kano Sasaki who was after all this. He not as smart as he thinks…he just has a huge ego."
"Well's let the police take care of them." She said glaring at him, "You," she added poking him the chest, "don't try to change the subject. How could you not tell me? Damn all those stupid things I told you…I can't believe you never said a word. You're Horrible Takeru Ishida. Terrible, Atrocious... I'll never forgive you! You hear that NEVER!" she screamed her voice a little lower because she was half blushing due to embarrassment.
Takeru stared at her amused. Even though she was mad at him, she looked cute. On a sudden impulse he pulled her close and kissed her. Hikari froze in surprise.
He quickly broke off and whispered, "I guess you're not mad anymore," and he walked off towards the gate leaving Hikari lost in her own thoughts.
She stared at him, then coming back to her senses, she blushed furiously and ran after him yelling, "Hey are you thinking that I am going to forgive you because of that?"
He stopped as she caught up to him, "Well aren't you?"
"No, of course not! What you did is unforgivable!"
"Come on Hikari. You're talking as though I committed a huge crime," he said, "And you told me that you'd never believe me if I told you that I was Takeru Ishida." He added seeing her about to protest.
Hikari who had opened her mouth quickly shut it flushing. How could she have said something so stupid?
Having nothing to answer she simply 'hmped' and stormed off with her nose in the air. When the two of the stepped out, they were greeted by David, the chauffeur,
"I'm glad you two are alright," he said with a smile.
Hikari stared at the Rolls Royce behind him, "Don't tell me…" she asked, her voice faint.
"Yup," Takeru beamed, "It's mine," He opened the door for her. She stared at him and then hesitantly got inside and settled herself as far from him as possible. Man! I can't believe all those stupid things I told him…and all this time he was Takeru Ishida. Worst of all I even got Daisuke to act as him in front of him. This is so embarrassing! She thought leaning against the window blushing at her thoughts.
"Still mad?" Takeru asked peering over her shoulder.
She shook her head and laughed softly, "No, Maybe its better that you are Takeru Ishida. Then I needn't be afraid that the real Takeru's gonna sue me,"
Takeru frowned, "What makes you think that I'm not going to do that?"
"Why wouldn't I?"
"You just wouldn't," she responded plainly. The car tires screeched to halt as they reached Hikari's apartment.
Takeru got off and walked her to her front door. He quickly gave her a hug and asked her, "So now that's out of the bag, shall we go on our first official date tomorrow?"
She laughed again, "Hey someone's in a hurry. I thought I needed a break after my little adventure,"
"Well…it's just that my older brother Yamato will finish his college next week and if he gets popular you might change your mind and want to go out with him,"
Hikari put her finger on her chin and pretended to think, "That's not a bad idea, you know maybe I should ditch you for him," she said walking inside the house.
"Hey!" he called indignantly.
She looked back at him, and he was pouting. She turned, ran to him and placed a kiss on his cheek, startling him.
"Shall I take that as a yes?"
She blushed and nodded slightly.
"Yes!" he yelled punching his fist in the air. Hikari giggled at his enthusiasm and waved him goodbye as he walked downstairs.
She stared as the Rolls Royce disappeared, her mind in a whirl of thoughts. All the recent events that had happened in her life ran in her mind like a movie being fast forwarded.
The last few weeks had been extremely adventures and she had experienced a mixture of feelings, joy, sorrow, even at time's fear…
And most important of all, she experienced the feeling of true love….
all because of a….
