Shuichi and Tatshua met in an alley while Cody and K were enjoying living together. Shuichi looked around to see that nobody was around. Tatshua looked annoyed.
"Shuichi, if we're gonna do this, where's the goods?" He asked his brother's lover. Shuichi sighed. "Yes, I have the goods. But do you promise-" "Oh course I promise. Get the package and go to your apartment. Now where is it???" Shuichi grabbed on the Tatshua's shirt, his eyes tearing up. "Little Cody is stuck there with K. He might have blown her head off already or worse…" He said. Tatshua looked unimpressed. "Shuichi, you ever thought that maybe K and Cody are both happy?" He asked. Shuichi looked with, tears running down his face.
"Okay, here it is." He said, ignoring what Tatshua said. He took out a brown paper bag which Tatshua grabbed from him. He took out his prize, a pair of Ryuichi's boxer shorts. He smiled as he grabbed them to him, smelling the scent of Ryuichi. Shuichi and Tatshua shook hands. "We have a deal. Expect her by tomorrow night." Tatshua replied, running out of the alley to go home with his new icon for his shrine.
The next day……………….
"Bye K, I'll be back before dinner." Cody called to her boyfriend who waved back as she got on the motorcycle with Michael. Since she was in college and went to class the same time as Michael, Michael would always catch a ride with her. Now, seated on the motorcycle, ready to go, they looked like they could be brother and sister. As they rode down the street with Michael holding on to Cody for dear life, Tatshua was watching in the bushes. He knew from tapping the phone line last night that Michael would be spending the night at a friends and K was going to do something special for him and Cody that night. He would get them then.
Cody sat at her class two hours later trying to think. It had been five months since she moved in with K. While things were great with the two of them, she hadn't seen Shuichi or Yuki since. It wasn't like K or anything was holding her back, she just didn't want to see them. She was almost ashamed to see them. She put her face in her hands as the teacher droned on. Was it really a good idea to leave them like that?
The three classes she had ended and Cody went to get some coffee. She sipped at her coffee, reading her English textbook with tired eyes. In about six months, she could graduate and finals were coming up. She had a lot of work to do if she was getting degree in English and a minor in theater arts.
As for her relationship with K, it couldn't be better. In the first month, she felt dirty and uncomfortable with the age difference between the two, despite the fact she loved him. Dare she say, she missed Shuichi and Yuki? Taking her backpack, she got up and left the college. So, maybe she did miss Shuichi and Yuki a little bit. "Fine I'll call them." She said to herself, getting on the motorcycle.
She decided to get some groceries, remembering they were low on some things. As she looked for everything, she felt like she was being watched. She shrugged. After being in a low budget film, she was used to the stares. But this stare was a little more, odd. She shrugged it off as nothing. After paying for everything, she put the things in her backpack and left the store, deciding to kill time by sitting a bench and reading Yuki's newest book. He had said he based one of his characters on Cody when she was younger so Cody was excited to know who it was.
As she was reading, a shadow fell over her. She looked up to see someone grab her and pin her to the bench. She kicked and squirmed as a cloth went over her mouth that its fumes knocked her out. Tatshua smiled. "Told you I'd get her Shuichi."
