Alright, my writer's block is over! I blame school for my writer's block, because as soon as I had a break from school, it was gone. Coincidence? I think not! Anyway:
-I don't own Ghost Hunt
Mai groaned. This was just not her day. Not her day at all. Not only was Naru having his time of the month, he was groaning loudly as she dragged him towards the bathroom, drawing stares in from all sides.
She sighed hugely when they finally reached the safety of the bathroom. Naru still groaned as she sat him down on a bench.
"Mai, why do I hurt so much?" Naru asked as he clutched his gut.
Mai sucked in her breath. Why me? What did I do wrong?
Gathering as much composure as she possible could, she faced Naru with a grim face, "Naru, although most people shouldn't have to know this or deal with this, the sad fact of life is that girls bleed…normally once a month. Because I don't think you'll want to know why, I won't tell you, but with the blood sometimes comes cramps. They hurt a lot but apparently, you've got them. I have some aspirin that'll help." Mai inhaled as she handed him the bottle of aspirin.
"So…girls bleed," Naru said slowly after swallowing the aspirin – without water.
"Is that why you get moody a lot?"
"I don't get moody a lot!" Mai shouted.
Naru raised an eyebrow, "Really?"
"What about the blood? Can I contain it?"
"Yes…there's this pad you put on your underwear."
Mai sighed. It was going to be a very long day. After finally convincing Naru to put on the pad, and convincing him that just because girls bled it didn't mean that they'd eventually bleed to death, although, Mai was pretty sure he was unconvinced, Mai decided it was time to go home.
The drive back to Mai's home went excruciatingly slow. Naru's aura of agony surrounded the car, making every single word in Mai's head disappear. After many thousands of seconds, they finally made it back to Mai's apartment.
After unloading all of Naru's purchases, they walked into her apartment. Naru promptly fell onto the couch and burst into tears. Mai was completely and utterly taken aback by Naru's sudden crying spree and decided to try and comfort her boss.
She slowly walked over to the couch and tapped Naru on the shoulder, "What's wrong Naru?"
Naru looked up at her, "I don't want to be a girl!"
"Why not?" Mai asked. I don't get paid enough.
"I hate shopping. I hate being short. I hate weird guys staring at me. I hate bleeding! I miss being a guy!" Naru shouted.
"It's not that bad," Mai said. Mai began to run out of patience with her boss. Of all the things to do, turning into a girl wasn't one of his brightest ideas.
"Oh come on, other than shopping, being short, being stared at, and bleeding, what is there to miss?" Mai asked as she kneeled on the floor so she could be eye-to-eye with him.
"Well, I'm stronger when I'm a boy."
"So what? Girls are cuter."
"I can walk faster when I'm a boy."
"Girls are cuter giggles."
Naru frowned, he was loosing and he didn't like it. Truth be told, the above reasons were only part of the reason that he didn't want to be a girl anymore. It was that reason that he'd hated that he'd been turned into a girl today.
"You want to know what I really hate about being a girl?"
Naru stood up, and helped Mai up.
"What is it Naru?"
"Mai, I like being taller than you. I like to look down at you and see your cute face looking back up at me. I like to be stronger than you and having you rely on me. I like to be faster than you and having you running faster to catch up with me. Now as a girl, I'm not taller, stronger, or faster," he said as his face began to blush.
"Naru-" Mai started.
"Let me finish," Naru said, "I like those times the best because it makes me feel like I'm actually needed by someone for something other than ghost hunting. I…" Naru's blush deepened, "I love you Taniyama Mai, and I…this may sound shallow…I like it better when I'm a guy just because…" Naru trailed off.
Mai's hand found his cheek. Naru closed his eyes at the touch of her hand. When he opened his eyes again, the first thing that came out of his mouth were, "Why are you smaller than me?"
Indeed, in what can only be described as a miracle, Naru had miraculously turned into a boy. Looking down at Mai he smiled one of those smiles that left Mai weak in the knees. Of course, it would have worked out better had he not been in girl's clothing but despite that, Mai still felt weak.
If it hadn't been for the fact that Naru had been through too much today, he probably wouldn't have done what he had done next. He leaned down and gave Mai a hesitant kiss on the lips. Then again, if it hadn't been for Mai being put through a lot today, namely taking care of her boss who turned into a girl, she probably wouldn't have done what she did next as well. She leaned in closer, and kissed him back. Until the need to breathe forced them apart, they stood there in absolute peace.
After they had cleaned up all of Naru's stuff, gotten Naru back into boy's clothes, and cleaned the pillow from all of Naru's makeup that had come off, Naru finally realized something. He had to find two boys and teach them a lesson; a very hard and painful lesson.
Yeah, that was a horrid chapter, full of corniness and stuff. But I hope the last chapter, coming up soon, will make up for that. It's when Mai stumbles into the two guys from the mall, Naru kicks their butt, and they all live happily ever after…until I decided that happily ever after does not come yet in their story. And yes, it was too short for my liking so the next chapter will be much much much longer.
