I Enjoy Being a Girl
I'm a girl and by me that's only great
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy
that I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervey
I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy
Like a filly who is ready for the race
When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curls
I float as the clouds on air do
I enjoy being a girl
When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth but pearls
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl
I flip when a fellow sends me flowers
I drool over dresses made of lace
I talk on the telephone for hours
with a pound and a half of cream upon my face
I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
who'll enjoy being a guy, having a girl like me
When men say I'm sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl
It goes to my head like brandy
I enjoy being a girl
With someone with eyes that smolder
Says he loves every silken curl
That falls on my ivory shoulder
I enjoy being a girl
When I hear a complementary whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea
I turn and I glower and I gristle
But I'm happy to know the whistles meant for me
I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
who'll enjoy being a guy, having a girl like me*


Gokudera sat deep in thought, mulling over Genji's words in his mind. She, really a girl named Himawari Yonaka, waited for him to either accept her story was true or condemn her as a liar that could not be trusted, and seeing how much he disliked her already, she was fairly sure that it would be the later.

"You sure you didn't leave anything out?" He threatened, reaching for his concealed weapons.

She sighed, knowing that telling him the entire truth would be the only way to get him on her side, "Fine, but only if you give the me the chance to tell Tsuna-kun the truth myself,"

He nodded and shook her uninjured arm. She was thankful to him for that.

"My name, my real name, is Himawari Yonaka," She hoped that he understood that she was really a girl, because she didn't like people dwelling on that, "and I think that I'm in like with Tsuna."

As she said the words out loud, she knew it was true. She had fallen for Tsuna, and Yonaka knew that the longer she stayed near him, the more she would like him. She couldn't allow that, so she decided that the first chance she got, after the ceremony, she would leave. It wasn't that Yonaka was running away, it was more that she still cared a bit for Enma, and trying to get with someone else, even though she was rejected, felt like cheating.

Gokudera stared at her, "But you're a guy..."

"Tch, figures you'd say that. Here's a newsflash for you-I'm not a guy," She reached under her shirt and pulled off her bandages, revealing small but obvious breasts.

"Then why-"

She cut him off, "Really? You of all people should understand why I did what I did."


While Reborn was "helping" Tsuna accept his fate, Xanxus was trying to figure out how to get Yonaka back from Tsuna. Contemplating murder, Xanxus was trying to think of ways that Himawari-chan would approve of. It was a hell of a lot harder than he thought it would be.

Talking to Enma, on behalf of an unknowing Yonaka, was Suzuki Adelheid. She didn't know most of the details, if any, but she saw how Enma was acting, and she saw that the so-called "Genji" was crying in his sleep after Enma had left. Being a woman, she just couldn't sit idly by and wait.

"Enma-sama," She knew that she shouldn't be talking to her boss like this, so she wanted to be as respectful as she could be, "I went to visit Genji-kun," More like she watched him from the outside, "And he seemed upset."

Enma looked at her imploringly, begging her to not bring this up, "I know."

She waited for him to elaborate, and he knew it.

"Genji told me that I promised to marry him," He cringed at the thought of marrying another guy.

"And? I thought that you two were childhood friends? Couldn't you just move on and act like that never happened?" Adelheid crossed her arms and stalked away, praying that he would think on her words.


Gokudera left the hospital, agreeing to keep Yonaka's secret until after the ceremony. He was still in shock to find out that he was really a she. He wondered how many other times that had happened to him? Wait...If she was a girl, then that means that he almost beat the life out of her, and Hibari...Crap, that tonfa-wielding bastard will be pissed when he finds out. Hell, he was always pissed.

"Oh, Juudaime!" Gokudera beamed at the very sight of Tsuna, "I just came back from Genji's."

Tsuna thought something seemed a little off about the way Gokudera was acting, but he decided to not pursue it, "So, how is he?"

Gokudera shrugged, "Fine, I guess."

"Maybe I should visit him?" Tsuna was being rhetorical, of course he planed on visiting Genji and telling him the good news.

"Well, I should go talk to Reborn-sama about the security of the situation. Bye!" He ran off so he could talk with Reborn and return to patrolling the parameter, or stalking Tsuna. Either way.

Tsuna had, in much less time than he had anticipated, spoke to his Guardians and other significant others about really becoming the Decimo Vongola. Due in majority to Genji's inspiration, and really thinking about everything, and in a big part everyone's overall positive responses, Tsuna had officially decided to become the Decimo, and the first person he wanted to tell was Genji.

Luckily for a certain crossing-dresser, she had reapplied her bandages just in the nick of time. Tsuna hummed merrily as he entered her room, a small plush chameleon, that he had bought in the store down the street from Yamamoto's sushi restaurant, behind his back.

"Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! What's that? What's that there, behind your back? Is it for me? Please tell me that that cute fellow is for me! I'm awesome enough," Yonaka loved chameleons, and she was ecstatic to see that Tsuna remembered.

He laughed at his friend as she struggled to reach for him, "Here, I saw him and I thought of you. But that's not why I'm here."

She grabbed the plush toy and hugged it, barely paying attention to her visitor, "Hn?"

"I'm here because I wanted to thank you. You helped me to see that I could be Decimo, and I just wanted to thank you," Tsuna was thinking of more to say, but he wasn't sure if he should, "You-You're a real pal. Actually, I-"

"Tsuna-kun, actually, I should you something. I have to leave after the ceremony," She couldn't bring herself to look him in the eye, "I've really started to like you-"

"I like you too," Tsuna blushed, looking deviously adorable.

She shook her head, "No, you can't like me now. Maybe in another five years, if you're still single, maybe then..."

He became upset, "Why can't I like you now?"

"Because of Enma," She frowned, "I know that he rejected me, but it still feels wrong to like you."

"Is that all?" Tsuna and Yonaka turned to look at the person who spoke, "If that's all, I don't mind."

Tsuna looked at Genji hopefully, but he shook his head, "It still doesn't feel right, I'm sorry."

"Have you considered that it's because you love me?" To make matters worse, Xanxus walked into the room, a bouquet of sunflowers in his hands.

Tsuna, and Enma, looked between the much older Xanxus and the teenage Genji. Tsuna really couldn't believe it. Xanxus. Freaking Xanxus! The same Xanxus who nearly killed the Ninth, the same Xanxus who almost killed him and his friends. How could Genji know him? Enma wondered how Xanxus, whom he had only heard of, could also like a guy.

"Oh, so you haven't heard yet? Well, this is much better than what I had planned," Xanxus smirked and sett he flowers on Genji's lap, "Your little Genji isn't what he's been saying. Genji's real name, as you should recall, is Himawari Yonaka, but that's not all. Our little midnight sunflower has another secret to tell, besides the fact that we were once lovers."

"Genji? Is this true?" Tsuna looked at Yonaka, and it was far worse than in her nightmares.

She started to cry, "My name is Himawari Yonaka, and yes, when I was younger, I was dating this bastard. Tsuna-kun, I'm sorry, but before I tell you, I have two things to say. The first is that this is what I was trying to tell you just now, and the second is that everything we felt, it has been true. Tsuna-kun, I hope you forgive me, but...I am a girl..."

Enma's jaw dropped. Xanxus watched gleefully as Tsuna feel into despair. Yonaka, like with Gokudera, unraveled the bandages she wore and proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that she was really a female.

"I hope, that someday, you can forgive me..." She started to cry harder, demolishing her ribs into dust.

A nurse came in at her blubbering and kicked everyone out, and for the most part, they went gladly.

No one visited Yonaka again after that, though many thought about it. She stayed in the hospital, during the Inheritance Ceremony, and she wept, imagining how everything looked. She imagined Tsuna, standing handsomely, outshining all the others, and Gokudera bouncing in place. Kyoko would beam proudly around, and Hibari would scowl to match. Enma would be in attendance, thoughts only on the Vongola, just like everyone else. No one would think of her, and her escape from this place would be clean. In time, everyone would forget her, but she would remember them all, and she would come back and try again.


I fail, and I'm so sorry! It took a while, and I'm sure that everyone will grab the torches, but I wrote what came to the page, and it sucks! But on the good point, she ended up alone, which is more believable, and there will be a hopefully redeemable sequel! This story is mostly in the manga time-line, minus the newest enemy. And I know that there were other things I wanted to say, but I forgot them. Well, yeah...Thanks for putting up with me and this suckery...Oh, and I'm sorry for all the weirdness, the pages have been so evil to me lately...Also, Himawari means sunflower, and Yonaka means midnight.

*By Peggy Lee "I Enjoy Being A girl", even though Yonaka's not that type of a girl, I still think that parts fit well with the story.
