But I'm back. :D I'll be updating sooner and quicker.

So enjoy this chapter.

"So what are you gonna do now?" Takuya opened his eyes and looked at Zoe, he was talking about her ex coming for dinner.

She frowned, and shrugged. "I have no clue.."

"I can always come over-"

"Thats okay. I have to get through this on my own, besides you have an black eye and your body hurts.."

"Its called make up Zoe. And trust me, i've been in worst pain." Though he didn't mean physically, he meant emotionally. Yes, even players like him has feelings.

Oh god, what if everything goes wrong? I got to get out of this. Zoe shook her head.

"No, its okay. Really!" She looked at him. "Can you get up?"

He scoffed, "Of course." He slowly got up. "See. I have skills." Just as he took a step he fell down.

"Yeah, skills.." She sighed.


Hours passed and it was finally dinner time. Zoe's mom called her downstairs. She took her time going, hoping she'd kill a little bit of time.

"About time," her mom told her.

Her ex just stared at her. Zoe started to feel really uncomfortable. So she quickly walked to the dinner table. Only 3 plates..?

"Wait. 3 plates? Isn't Matt or his girl going to join us?"

"They couldn't make it-" Kento began.

"Did I ask you?" She hissed.

"Thats no way to speak to your guest!"

"Its not like I invited you!"

"Calm down you two." Her mom sighed. "They wont be joining us because they're on a date. Now lets eat." Kento sat next to Zoe, and her mom infront of them.

Can this night get any worse?

Suddenly the doorbell rang. Zoe stood up. "I'll get it!" She ran to the door, once she opened it her mouth dropped.

It was Takuya! Wearing a suit! "W-what are you doing here?" She stuttered out. He really did look good.

He laughed. "I left you breathless huh? Haha. No, seriously, I didn't want you to be in an awkward dinner."

"Whoa! Kanbara actually cares about someone?" She joked. "Thank you so much. I was literally dying in there. Come in." She moved aside and he walked in. "You know, you didn't have to wear a suit.."

"Yeah, but I want to impress your mom." He gave her a smile. She blushed slightly.

Zoe lead him to the dinner table. Her mom stood up. "And who's this?" She asked.

Meanwhile, Kento was glaring at him. This was suppose to be the three of them! A chance for him to get back with her!

Well then. I'll make sure you'll have a hell of a night..

"This is..um Ta..takuya..my um.."

"Boyfriend." Takuya finished for her, wrapping his arm around her waist pulling her closer to him.

"Fidanzato?" Her mom repeated in Italian.

Zoe laughed nervously. "Yep. He's my boyfriend alright."

Her mom seemed rather bothered. She wanted her daughter to get back to Kento. Not him. She faked a smile, "Then sit sit! I'll go bring another plate" And with that she left.

Takuya turned to Kento who was still glaring. "Sup buddy?" He smirked, taking his arm off of Zoe. She sat down, as Takuya sat next to where her mom was sitting.

He rolled his eyes. "This dinner doesn't include you."

"Seems like it does now."

Mrs Orimoto set him down a plate with stake, rice, corn and a soda. He thanked her and she sat down.

It was a quiet dinner so far. Kento just kept staring at Zoe. Zoe tried to avoid eye contact with him.

"This food is great Mrs Orimoto." Takuya smiled.

She nodded, "Why thank you." She drank some water. "So, how did you guys meet?" She meant him and her daughter.

"We met freshmen year. When I transferred here." Zoe answered.

"Thats nice. What about Kento?"

Takuya was about to answer when Kento interrupted. "Takuya punched me." He said it so bluntly.

All of their eyes widened. Mrs Orimoto glared at Takuya. "OH really."

Takumi was about to talk but of course, he interrupted again, "Yeah." He frowned. "All I wanted to do is say that I liked his goggles. He got mad because I hugged Zoe and all of a sudden he swung." He smirked inwardly.

"What! That is not what happened!" Takuya argued.

"Kento you're lying!" Zoe joined in. "Takuya got beat up by him!"

"And where are his bruises?" Mrs Orimito crossed her arms.

"I'm wearing make up!" Takuya blurted out. He realized that sounded wrong.. "Wait -"

"I've heard enough!" She stood up. "Izumi walk him out."

Takumi both stood up, "What?"

Kento kept on smirking. His plan was working perfectly.

"Excuse my language but, what the fuck is your problem Mrs Orimoto. You don't even want to listen to MY side of the story! Like you just want me out of here with out explaining anything. And don't worry. She doesn't have to walk me out. Cause i'm out. Fuck this." He walked out.

Zoe turned to Kento, slapping him hard. "This is all your fault! You seriously can't accept the fact that I found a better guy that actually treats me right." She yelled. Even though she was lying, it felt good to say it..

"Izumi Orimoto. Go to your room right this instance. You are grounded!" Mrs Orimoto pointed to her room. "GO. NOW."

Zoe rolled her eyes, going to her room. She slammed the door, locking it as well. She walked out into her balcony, putting her hands on her face.

Takuya climbed up onto her balcony quietly, going behind her and wrapping his arms around her, whispering into her ear. "Hey..it's okay."

She felt chills all over, but soon relaxed. "He ruins everything. I hate him so much."

"I know.. at least the dinner is over."

"You know I should be mad at you too." She said, turning around meeting his eyes.

He raised an eye brow. "For?"

"For bursting out like that."

He unwrapped his arms and with his right arm he rubbed his neck, "Sorry. She pissed me off."


"I don't think she likes me anyway." He shrugged.

"Honestly, I thought you would leave." She said, looking down.

Takuya frowned. "Alright I know I can be a dick; However, I knew you'd be upset after what happened. I couldn't just leave you like that."

Zoe was surprised. After all he is a player. She knew he wasn't toying with her. She liked this side of him. She never thought she'd admit it but she was falling for him.

He lifted up her chin. They both stared into each others eyes. He leaned in and kissed her softly, this time she didn't pull away, instead she wrapped his arms around his neck, kissing back.

What they didn't know was that Kento and Mrs Orimoto were watching them from her bedroom window.

"You have to split them up. I'll pay you. Whatever it takes." She told him.

He smirked. "Don't worry. She'll be mine in no time."

Who would of thought!
