Chapter 3: Toying around
I typed away in the dead of the night. I glanced at the wall clock, it's almost 12 am. I yawned and continued on typing away and afterwards, reading the other e-mails I got for the day. "I can't believe so many people have problems when it comes to romance." I commented as I read each letter stating problems on relationships, secret loves, and many other bizarre (well, for what I thought) topics.
Then suddenly, "Kiss! Kiss! Fall in love! Maybe you're my lo—"
My phone rang, displaying the number of an unknown caller.
"Hello?" I answered.
"Rei-chan?" a moderately pitched male voice replied.
I had a feeling who it was. I dreaded to think who it was, actually. "May I know who this is?" I asked just to be sure.
"Who do you think it is?" he said in a creepy voice, trying to scare me.
I rolled my eyes. "I don't know you pathetic loon, now just tell me who you are or I'll hang up on you."
"Sheesh," he said. "Aren't you feisty?" he said teasingly.
"And you're irritating." I barked.
"Fine, fine, fine, It's Hikaru." He finally introduced himself.
"Oh," I replied. "What do you want with me?"
"Kaoru and I can't sleep." He simply stated.
I sighed, "So?"
"Come over in the house and read us a story!" he said anxiously.
I almost dropped my jaw. "And what are we? Five years old?" I replied coldly.
"Don't forget you lost the bet." I heard another voice in the background. I was certain it was Kaoru.
I yawned and still typed away as I was talking to him on the phone. "But do you know what time it is? It's 12 am for goodness' sake. We still have school tomorrow."
They whined like bratty children. "Demo Rei-chan! THE BET! THE BET!THE BET!" they said in chorus.
"Buh-bye." I replied and hung up.
I continued on with my work, the three minutes later, my cell phone rang again. I didn't pick it up a that time, but finally picked it up on the second time it rang.
"What now?" I asked irritatingly.
"THE BET!" they yelled.
"I know I lost the bet, but come on, WHAT YOU'RE ASKING ME TO DO IS CRAZY!"
"No its not!" they protested.
I was slowly losing my temper. "Look, aside from the crazy idea you guys have planned. I don't want to go out at this time of the night. I'm still doing something anyway."
I heard them snicker. "Alright then." they agreed with me.
"Good. I'll see you two tomorrow then." I replied.
"No, we'll see you later." They replied in chorus and hung up.
I hung up as well and threw my cell phone to the bed. I started typing again, continuing on replying to those e-mails. I stopped for a second, and then suddenly thought of what they said last.
"No, we'll see you later."
I thought about it as it echoed in my head. I suddenly got this crazy idea that they might barge in my home tonight. "Nah, they can't do that. They don't know my address in the first place." I assured myself as I smiled and continued on with work.
I finished at around 12:23 am. I closed my laptop and did all the necessary things before going to bed. I fixed my school bag for tomorrow and just jumped on the bed. I yawned; I was so tired from reading all those e-mails and thinking of advices to give those who are unlucky in love. I stared at the ceiling as I lay down; then, my eyes began to give up as I began to doze off.
I felt something weird. I sensed a flash of light even though my eyes were closed. I ignored it the first time and just pulled the sheets closer to me and I snuggled. Then, I felt something weird again, like there was something over me.
I opened my eyes and saw two pairs of cat-like eyes. OHMYGOD. I froze as I just stared into those eyes. Then, I yelled at the top of my lungs. Kaoru placed his hand on my mouth to keep me quiet.
"It's just us!" they said, trying to calm me down.
I pushed Kaoru's hand away. "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TWO DOING HERE?!" I yelled angrily.
Hikaru stood up and looked around my room. "Well, you said you didn't want to leave the house, so we came to you."
"How the heck did you two find out where I live?" I asked.
Kaoru grinned. "Kyoya-senpai knows everything."
I glanced at the wall clock, "It's 1 am, go home already!" I told them as I attempted to push them out the door.
"We're not leaving!" they replied in chorus.
"Why do you two even bother going to my house, anyway?!" Still, I was trying to push them out the door.
They fought back. "Because we're BORED."
"GO FIND SOMETHING OR SOMEBODY ELSE TO PLAY WITH!"
"Don't forget that you LOST!" they reminded me.
"I'LL PLAY WITH YOU TOMORROW!"
"NO, PLAY WITH US NOW!"
After many attempts of driving them out the door, I was too tired to fight back. I stumbled to the floor and let out a sigh of frustration. "FINE!" I barked at them.
"HURRAY!" they exclaimed as they held hands and skipped around in circles.
"Sheesh," I commented. "So what do you two want to do?"
They gave me a smirk and then a few minutes later, I found myself wearing this ridiculous---no, to be honest it was GORGEOUS. I found myself wearing a gorgeous baby pink cocktail dress. "Walk a little." Said Hikaru. I sighed for the nth time that day and began to walk.
Kaoru stood up and placed his Ipod on my speakers, soon, there was already music playing. "So what am I? Your fashion model or something?" I told them as I placed my hands on my waist.
"You would be, if you didn't walk so lazily." Hikaru criticized.
I rolled my eyes. "Well, SOOOOOOOO-RRRRRRYYY!" I replied with sarcasm.
Hikaru looked pissed and I just stared at him. "Look, we made a bet, you lost. Now you have to follow our orders." He said coldly.
"I know, and I would do anything you wish, but this is way out of line since you're disturbing me and depriving me of my sleep in the middle of the night." I answered to him.
"We didn't set any limitations to this bet like times we can call you over and such stuff, so you have no one to blame." Kaoru suddenly told me.
I groaned. God, they're irritating! They haven't changed too much since they were kids. Always been self-centered and still are now. "Hey, why'd you have to be so cold and stubborn?" I barked at them.
Their eyebrows furrowed at me. I had a bad feeling about this.
"I'm beginning to dislike you, you know that?" said Kaoru.
I gulped at what he just said. "You are one hard to read person. You appear to be quite a snob when I first bumped into you, then you enter the Host Club and turn out to be an interesting girl. Now, you're back to being a snobby brat."
I fumed at what he said. "But you're being the unreasonable brat here!"
Hikaru stepped forward and held my chin. I felt a shiver roll down my spine as he did that. "GET YOUR HAND AWAY FROM ME!" I yelled frantically. This is… too much physical contact.
"You're not really a good person, so I guess we have to teach you a thing or two." Said Kaoru
"JUST GET YOUR HAND AWAY FROM MY FACE!" I yelled as I pushed Hikaru's hand away. But then, he cupped his hands on my face---just like what he did to me in elementary.
I tried to pull away but he held my face tighter. "What is it with you? Why are you freaking out?" he asked as I began to freak.
"I...I…" I stuttered and the last thing I saw was Hikaru's face.
The next day, I woke up and I realized that I was on the bed though I remember passing out and falling to the floor. I slapped my forehead when I glanced at the clock and saw that I was already late for school.
That afternoon in the Host Club.
"She passed out?!" Fujioka Haruhi couldn't believe the weird thing she heard for the twins.
"Yeah." The twins replied in chorus.
"Did you do anything to her?" Kyoya asked.
"Nothing. But then she was freaking out and saying, "Get your hand away from my face!"" Kaoru replied.
"What did you do to her face?" Hunny asked them both.
"All I did was cup my hands on her cheeks." Hikaru admitted.
Then suddenly, Tamaki remembered the first time she met Rei.
"I'm sorry, I'm just not used to that kind of physical contact."
He remembered the exact words she said to him when he held her hand lovingly. "I remember the first time I met her, I held her hand and she sort of freaked out the same." Tamaki told them.
"But why?" they all questioned, well, all except Kyoya.
"I don't know. But I do remember her saying, "I'm sorry, I'm not used to that kind of physical contact.""
"So what? Does she have some trauma or disorder that makes her freak out when people come close in physical contact with her?" Hikaru questioned.
