Chapter 12: Letters Music and Threats
.A few days had gone by and Gii had not contacted Takumi during that time. Figuring he had work to do Takumi took no offense and was currently looking over a new piece of violin music he hoped to practice once he was given the okay by the nurse. His burn was healing nicely but he didn't want to take any chances. Takumi set the music aside and went about studying for his next exam. He was about to finish up when he heard his cell phone go off. Pulling it out of his pocket he realized it was a text from Akaike.
Go to Gii's room asap.
Takumi looked at the time and realized it was still quite a number of hours before curfew so him 'dropping by to visit a friend' wouldn't be frowned upon if he was seen by his boyfriend's 'fanclub'. He leaned back and covered his eyes with the back of his hand. As his eyes closed he pictured Gii's smiling face and felt a twinge in his chest. He really did miss his fiancé. Mind made up Takumi text Akaike asking him to tell Gii he'll stop by in a while he wanted to finish his studying first. Although he loved his fiancé to death his mind was too focused to just stop what he had started.
Akaike reread the text and smiled. "He said he wants to finish studying first."
Gii looked up from his lying position on his sofa. "I just hope he comes over soon."
"You know you're lucky I'm the only one who knows how you really act when you don't get to see him that often." Akaike said.
"What exactly do you mean by that?' Gii demanded.
"Well to be honest you remind me of a little kid who has lost his toy and won't be happy until he has it back. In this case Hayama is that toy." Akaike explained.
"I think you have me mistaken for Misu. He's like that when it comes to Shingyoshi." Gii answered
"Actually there are some cases that you two are both like that." Akaike said sitting down on the edge of the sofa next to his best friend's feet. "So any news from your father?"
"No thank goodness. But I'm not about to celebrate just yet either." Gii said as he sat up.
"Why do you say that?"
"Because I talked to my father's assistant to see if she had heard any news about my father leaving the country or anything." Gii explained, "And she told me she wasn't allowed to answer me."
Akaike looked confused. "Wait are you saying you think your dad may come here and confront you in person?"
"Trust me I would not put it past him. When my father wants something he will do everything in his power and sometimes added power borrowed from unknown sources to obtain it." Gii said. He turned to look at his best friend. "Shouzou why do you think I enrolled at Shidou?"
"I'd say because of Hayama but-"
"No I didn't know Takumi attended here until after. I came all the way over to Japan because I needed to get away from my family. I used the excuse that Shidou was such a promising academy to get as far away as I could." Gii said.
"You don't want to inherit the company do you?" Akaike asked catching on.
Gii shook his head. "No I don't, I never did."
"Well why didn't you tell your father about it?"
"Because he's expecting me to pitch in to be 'the perfect family' and I hate the fact I'm supposed to appear 'perfect'." Gii answered. "Do you have any idea how much I hated having to change my appearance at the beginning of this year? Sure I know I needed the glasses, my eyes are too sensitive for contacts. But the haircut cutting ties off with all of you, I hated it with a passion but I knew I had no choice."
"Gii it doesn't matter, you still matter to us." Akaike said, "What brought this up anyway?"
"I don't know I'm just." Gii sighed breaking eye contact. "I'm just afraid my dad won't listen to reason. "
Akaike didn't know what to say to that. He knew his best friend had been troubled by something for awhile but it took a lot for even him to get it out of the third year dorm head. "Maybe a visit from Hayama will cheer you up. He should be here soon. By the way why did you want to see him?"
Gii's demeanor changed in a second and a smile was plastered on his face. "Well it's been a few days since I have but I want to make sure his burn is okay and I also wanted to ask him if he would be interested in performing in front of the student body."
"You know how shy Hayama is. I highly doubt he'll jump at the opportunity." Akaike said. "He doesn't believe he's talented enough. You know that as well as I do."
"I know that's why I plan to have a certain someone convince him he is good enough and if he got my email that someone will be making a special appearance." Gii answered with a rather satisfied look in his face. The look of satisfaction was replaced with a look of pure happiness when he heard that familiar knock in the door. "That's Takumi."
Akaike looked at the door confused. "How can you tell?"
" I told him to knock a certain way whenever he stops by so I know that it's him." Gii explained as he went to answer the door. Sure enough there stood Takumi.
"Konbonwa." He greeted quietly and looked around to make sure no one was looking.
Gii only shook his head and pulled Takumi into the room. "No one is going to care if I have someone visiting me. Besides Shouzou's here so no suspiciousness to be gossiped about."
Takumi only nodded in greeting to the other occupant in the room. "Anou Gii is there something wrong? Akaike-kun seemed very insistent."
"Well actually Takumi I was wondering how your burn was. I haven't seen you for a few days and I was beginning to worry." Gii said as he reached for his fiance's hand. It was still wrapped in gauze and just looking at it made Gii angry. He calmed himself down and pulled Takumi over to the couch.
Akaike watched his two best friends and held back a chuckle. "I need to get going." He didn't receive an answer but let himself out of the room.
Takumi looked at his burn. "The nurse said I should see her tomorrow and if it looks good I can take the gauze off and return to practicing my violin."
"Actually I'm glad you brought that up." Gii said. "Takumi, I was wondering. Do you think you would be up to performing in front of the student body?"
"You have the talent to do so and I believe in you. Besides I know there are a lot of students here who believe you aren't good enough to attend Shidou. Perhaps a concert will ease their minds and you'll be able to entrance them with your beautiful music." Gii explained.
"Actually since I haven't had the ability to practice I have been writing well attempting to write a song to play when I can play again." Takumi said.
"Do you have it with you?" Gii asked now curious.
"Hai, I keep it with me and a pencil incase I come up with another tune." Takumi said as he reached into his back pocket, "It's not that good though."
Gii took the sheet and looked over it. "Takumi how would this sound if you played it now?"
Takumi looked over his music before closing his eyes and quietly humming the tune he had written down.
After a moment Gii place a hand on Takumi's shoulder. "Takumi, I sincerely hope you get that gauze off tomorrow. Do you have any idea how beautiful that sounds?"
"Yes, in fact Takumi do you mind if I make a quick copy of this and send it so a certain someone?" Gii requested.
"It's not finished but sure I guess so." Takumi answered. "As long as I get it back."
"Well what time do you plan to go see the nurse tomorrow?" Gii asked.
"I planned to go between morning and afternoon classes. " Takumi answered, "Why do you ask?"
"Because I planned to escort you to the nurses office. I want to make sure you're going to be okay." Gii explained.
"But Gii what about-"
"Takumi no one is going to bother you anymore. Most of the school knows what happened with Mitsarou-kun. His groupies have been watched extra closely by us." Gii said.
"Gomen nasai." Takumi said wrapping his arms around his torso.
"What on earth do you have to be sorry for Takumi?" Gii asked confused.
"You have so many other things you need to do. I don't understand why you insist so much on keeping my safe." Takumi explained. "I'm not that important."
Gii knew right then and there that something had happened to Takumi on the way here. "Takumi, what is going on?"
"Betsuni." Takumi answered quietly.
"Takumi, answer me, please." Gii requested.
Takumi looked at Gii's expression and caved almost immediately, "On my way here I stopped at my mailbox since I keep forgetting to pick up my mail and I found this inside." Takumi reached into his other pocket and pulled out a folded envelope. "I don't know who sent it but I don't think it was one of the other students."
Gii took the envelope and removed its contents. He scanned the writing and after each line his expression grew darker and darker.
I understand that you are currently in a relationship with the heir to Saki Enterprises Saki Giichi. With young Giichi being the one and only heir to the company this pointless relationship if a waste of Giichi's time. A bride has been chosen for him and he will e escorting this young lady down the aisle through a traditonal American wedding not only joining the two names but the two companies as well. I ask that you remove all ties with young Giichi and never speak nor even think of him again. If you choose to fail in these instructions the consequences will be severe.
That was as far as Gii could read before he felt like he was going to explode.
Takumi could feel the anger coming from his boyfriend and he nearly fell back when Gii stood up and punched the wall. "Gii!"
Gii pulled his hand away to reveal his knuckles slightly scraped but no worse for the wear. "Gomen Takumi, I didn't mean to startle you. It's just." He sighed deeply, "Were you going to follow through on these instructions?"
Takumi took a hold of Gii's hand to inspect the 'damage' and made sure to have his ring in view. "Gii, you already proposed to me and unless you remove this ring yourself I'm staying engaged to you. I'm yours Gii and this ring should be proof."
Gii looked at the ring then back up to find Takumi leaning towards him. "Takumi, if you don't move back I'm not going to be able to stop myself."
Takumi ignored Gii's warning and quickly captured his fiance's lips in a kiss. "It's a good thing one of us has self control."
Gii pouted, "I have self control, when it's needed."
"More like when you feel like using it." Takumi said as he held back a yawn. "I better had back to my room. I'm getting tired and its' getting close to curfew."
"Well meet me for lunch tomorrow and I'll return your music okay." Gii requested.
Takumi smiled as he rose to his feet.
"Oh do you mind if I hang on to this too?" Gii asked holding out the letter.
Takumi's smile faded. "No not at all. In fact I'd rather you have it. If I keep it, it will just be a constant reminder of how badly people don't want us together."
Gii removed the space between the two of them and pulled Takumi into a tight embrace. "Listen to me Takumi. We belong together and I don't care what anyone says about it. What matters is that you believe you belong with me and I with you."
Takumi rested his head on Gii's shoulder feeling tears start to fall, "Arigatou, Gii."
Gii sighed, "You know Takumi unless they are tears of happiness I'm going to make sure you never cry again."
Takumi slowly pulled away, "Arigatou Gii." He placed a kiss on Gii's cheek to sweeten the thank you.
"Would you like me to escort you back to your room?" Gii offered.
"No I'll be fine." He offered his fiancé a smile before letting himself out of the room.
Gii watched as his door closed, "No Takumi, you won't be fine, not until everyone understands that you belong with me and no matter what anyone says I'm not giving you up."
