The Dare

Summary: Mikan Sakura was dared to do something that might make Sumire swear, Ruka shocked, Hotaru proud and Natsume Hyuuga completely and utterly whipped.

Part One

I hated this night. I concluded.

It was Saturday night again and every Saturday night, Hotaru and I dare each other to do some outrageous things and tonight, I'm wondering how on earth could I have possibly agreed to do this every time we meet…

"No, no, no, and a thousand times no!" I said fiercely as I shook my head vigorously.

Hotaru looked pointedly at me.

"You're going to do it no matter what."

I shook my head again.

"I'm so sorry Hotaru-chan but this is the one dare I can't do."

"You will do it or else you'll know what will happen." Hotaru warned.

I looked at my so-called best friend with disbelief.

She was supposed to be my best friend and now she's blackmailing over what happened last summer which I will not mention for it's too horrifyingly embarrassing to be relieved again.

"Please…Hotaru-chan… don't let me do this…And you know I'll be in big trouble if I got caught…" I pleaded, with the most pitiful puppy dog eyes I could muster.

Hotaru looked at the other direction.

My ears drooped.

"Sorry but you agreed and according to the contract you are supposed to do the dare or risk your dignity." Hotaru said as she showed me a piece of paper that was in fact signed by me due to idiotic reasons like wanting to spend time with my best friend for example. "And besides, everything has been taken care of; all you have to do is do the dare." She added bluntly.

I glared at her.

"Am I not risking my dignity or even my life in this dare?"

Hotaru rolled her eyes.

"Of course not, idiot because trust me if you can't do this dare, you'll find yourself in deeper trouble."

I gulped.

Hotaru can be very scary and I have no doubt my fate will be worse in her hands if I don't do this dare.

And so, that's why I'm standing in front of Natsume's door and wondering what fate could be worse than this.

I breathed deeply.

I was still quite surprised because I arrived at Natsume's room so easily especially in the middle of the night but then again, what Hotaru wants, Hotaru gets.

My mind was still in turmoil as I looked at the door.

I still didn't know if I should do it or not but the sudden voice in my ear made it clear.

"What are you still doing there Mikan? Get it over and done with." Hotaru said from a device in my ear. It was one of Hotaru's inventions.

"Alright, fine." I said grimly and as silent as possible, started opening the door which was unlock for some reason but I know this is someone due to a person named Hotaru.

I entered the room which was dimly lit by a chandelier in the ceiling.

Whoa! A chandelier! I thought as my eyes widened in surprise and then I started noticing the other looking expensive stuff in Natsume's room which was very big. It has a living room with a fireplace in the middle portion and then there was a relatively small kitchen in the right corner and then in the left corner, there was the king-sized bed where my current victim lied.

"Stop gaping like some idiot and try to act smart for a change." Hotaru said impatiently.

"Okay, sorry! I was just amazed about the room and everything." I defended.

"Whatever. Just get a move on. We're losing precious time." Hotaru told me hastily.

"Okay. Okay." I said and then proceeded near the bed.

I quietly removed my robe to reveal a flesh colored tube and a mini skirt with the same color and then placed a small, hardly noticeable camera-like thing that creates an illusion in the bedside table.

I swear in all the gods out there that I'll be the kindest girl in the world if they ever let me live. I prayed, before I went in for what may seem like the last moments of my life.

I silently slipped in beside Natsume who was sleeping like a rock and started to wake him up and at the same time quietly prayed he wouldn't but unfortunately, the gods didn't seem to listen to me as I saw Natsume stir for a bit and then woke up full blast and of course, being trained mercilessly by the Alice Academy, he quickly noticed my presence and jumped out of the bed to reveal him having nothing on but his underwear which was not a really bad situation to be in if he's not threatening to burn you alive.

"Who the hell are you? Explain or die." Natsume asked coldly and since there was hardly any light; he didn't recognize me.

I decided to change that of course and turned on the light by pressing some button near the bed while putting the best annoyed face I could muster though it wasn't really that hard since I naturally get annoyed with Natsume.

"Are you kidding me? I'm your wife, idiot." I said annoyed as I sat up and quickly covering the top of the tube so it would like you-know-what.

Natsume's face was priceless to say the least.


I rolled my eyes for effect.

"You know, Mikan Sakura-Hyuuga! We got married like seven years ago and we already have 3 children too or did you forget about them too hmm?" I spoke as if I was talking to a mere child. I smiled to myself. I was actually handling the acting better than I could have imagined.

"Mikan Hyuuga? 3 children?" I heard him say more to himself than me. But hey, I don't blame the guy because if I woke up in the middle of the night finding out all that, I would have fainted by now.

I saw him put his hands to his head as he took a seat in the nearby chair.

My heart then suddenly took pity on him and I felt guilty.

Oh poor guy… Sorry a- But before I even finished mumbling apologies in my mind, I saw him stood up and looked at me straight in the eyes.

Something was different.

Very different.

"Oh yes, it's all coming back to me now." He said firmly as his gaze turned to look at the blanket I was holding. "So now, dear wife, how about another round?"

And an evil smile appeared on his face.
