(Alright everyone, it has been a LO-ONG time since I updated this story… basically because I've been running short of ideas. But anyway, I'm slowly trying to think of new ones… so hopefully I'll see some suggestions from you. Just a little note: the chapters may get shorter and shorter… and I will be keeping myself updated with this story every now and then; I didn't forget to update the story, I just couldn't think of any ideas. Thanks to milkyway, etceterae, The Time Traveler, Ran-dezvous, kudo-miyaka, Unknown 2008, and Hallwings for reviewing. Please enjoy, and review this moment please.)

Part 11: Private Gym

(Shinichi's P.O.V.)

I didn't know what was going on with me. When Gym class was upon us, I couldn't stop looking at her – Ran Mori… demonstrating pure effort for gymnastics with the other girls of Teitan High School.

We must be alone here, I thought.

Wait… what was I thinking? Me and Ran, alone in the gym… not hearing anything but the sounds of our own voices and nothing more -- I must be saying something that I didn't even mean to.

"I'll see her afterwards," I said to myself.

I left her a note at her locker telling her to come to the gym after school. I took a look back, thinking she was going to get that note, one way or the other.

Ran, I'm looking forward to seeing you, I thought.

I didn't know what was with me – usually, I'd be looking forward to seeing Ran like usual… but this was… a somewhat different situation in this case. When I arrived at class, I dropped my original thoughts and focused on my next subject.

In a matter of just a few hours, school was over and instead of walking out of the campus grounds, I dashed off to the gym.

(Ran's P.O.V.)

I had gotten Shinichi's note and as soon as school was done, I went off to the gym, just like his note said. When I opened one of the gym doors, there was Shinichi, standing in the middle of the basketball court in his usual uniform.

"Why'd you call me here, Shinichi?" I asked, showing him the note he left in my locker.

"Ran," Shinichi said, moving in closer to me. "I… love you."

In an instant, he shoved me into his manly body. I gave in to his thoughts – I had no way to get out of this.

"Wanna have some fun?" Shin-chan asked me.

"Sports you mean?" I asked.

"Well… running I mean," Shinichi answered.

With that being said, the two of us started running all throughout the basketball court, chasing each other. After that, we sat down on one of the bleachers together like we were watching a movie.

"Come on," Shinichi said to me.

(Quick A/n: if you think this is a kind of graphic scene, please don't give me a hard time with this.)

"Where are we going?" I asked, following Shinichi.

"You'll see," Shinichi answered.

He had led me to where the pool was.

"Um, Shinichi," I said. "I don't have a bathing suit, neither a change of clothes."

"Don't worry, Ran," Shinichi said to me. "We're not going skinny dipping."

"Then what are we doing here?" I asked.

In the meantime, Shinichi had already disposed of his shoes and socks and was working on removing his pants.

"Care to join me for a dip?" He asked me.

(Quick A/n: I don't know if students at high schools in Japan are allowed at their school's pool area, but in this case, they are.)

"Shinichi," I said. "Can't we swim somewhere else?"

"What's wrong with over here?" Shinichi asked me.

He had just disposed of his shirt and tie, leaving him in only his boxers.

"This is how we're going to go," Shinichi explained to me.

"Like that?" I asked.

"Mm-hmm," Shinichi answered. "So, do you wanna come?"

"Oh what the heck," I said as I started to feasibly undress.

As soon as I was left in my white bra and panties, Shinichi and I walked to the deck. He bent down and ran his hand in the water. All of a sudden, something came over me – I ran up behind Shinichi, grabbed his body, and shoved the both of us into the water.

(Shinichi's P.O.V.)

"Oof – whoa!!" I said as the two of us fell in.

After Ran resurfaced, she wiped her face and looked at me.

"Sorry," She said. "I didn't know what came over me."

I couldn't help laughing.

"Ran," I said through laughs. "I didn't mind it… I kind of thought you were going to do something like that."

I started swimming up to her, and hugged her. In a second, we were caught in a deep kiss.

"Now let's see if you can catch me," I said to Ran.

And just like that, we were chasing each other in the pool.

End of Part 11.

(Okay, that will do it. And please don't leave any bad reviews… this was what was going through my mind while I typed this up… I just hope you enjoyed it and don't bad-mouth me for something like this. I'll be back with another moment… hopefully soon.)
