Author's note: this is a romance comedy, and by the way I don't like Ayeka! This story is about what would happen if Ryoko decided to get a job and became a model. What if her agent fell in love with her? What will Tenchi do? Will he admit his love to Ryoko before half the male population in Japan does so first? This is set in the OVA universe.Ryoko Becomes a Model
It was another peaceful day in Okayama…
Yes another peaceful day…
"She started it Tenchi," Ryoko said looking at Tenchi seductively, "You believe me don't you?" Ryoko began to rub a finger along Tenchi's chest.
"Wha…what?! How dare you! You know perfectly well that you started this Ryoko. It's about time you started pulling your own weight around here and help out around the house. All you do is lay around all day drinking sake!"
"Is this true Ms. Ayeka?" asked Tenchi.
"Tenchi," whined Ryoko, "It's not my fault I didn't do my chores today…you see I had a nightmare last night so didn't get much sleep and just wanted to sleep in-"
"Will you girls be quiet! Ryoko, please you need to start helping Ayeka around the house, after all you are a guest here."
Ryoko humphed. 'Guest, yeah right. If I were a real guest I'd have my own room" thought Ryoko.
"I have to go to the field to start harvesting the carrots for your Ryo-Oki, Ryoko. Just try and make yourself useful, ok?" Tenchi said with a sigh.
"Well, ok. But if that Slut Princess-"
"What did you call me demon?"
"Ryoko, stop it! You're always avoiding your chores! Using Ayeka as an excuse to get out of them is very immature! I wish you would act more like her! If you don't start helping out around the house-" began Tenchi, but stopped when he saw the look in Ryoko's eyes.
'Is Tenchi about to give me an ultimatum? What is he going to say? Is he going to say that I have to leave if I don't start helping out around the house…or if I can't be more like Ayeka…I just wanted to catch up on some sleep…' thought Ryoko sadly, as unwanted tears began to buildup in her eyes. Ryoko willed her tear ducts to close so that Tenchi wouldn't see her cry.
"Ryoko, I…just help Ayeka around the house, ok? And no more fighting. I guess I'll see you girls at dinner." Tenchi said at last as he turned around to walk back to the fields. 'I'm such a dumb ass. Why do I always blow-up at Ryoko like that? I almost did it again, the last time I blew-up at her was when she ripped my mother's Kimono…I said I hated her. I don't hate Ryoko, it's just that I don't understand her. No, that's not it…I care about Ryoko but…I'm just not ready to chose yet. Why does everything have to be so difficult with her. It's so easy with Ayeka…she's the perfect princess. But Ryoko…I guess she's…well she's different. I'll think about this some other time. Maybe Ryoko will finally take her chores seriously for a change.' Tenchi sighed.
Back at the Masaki home…
"Well, demon if I heard Tenchi correctly you better start acting more like me more or else! Why don't you go and clean the toilet. You'll be in your element…you waste product. Isn't that what Kagato had said you were…I'm beginning to agree with him."
It was taking all of Ryoko's will power not to blast Ayeka to the next dimension. 'Tenchi said no fighting…but if I stay here any longer I know I'll end of blasting the prissy princess to bits! I just have to get out of here.' Ryoko thought as she phased away in front of Ayeka.
"Ohh you demon! Lord Tenchi will be sure to hear about this!" Ayeka said as she stormed off.
Meanwhile in Tokyo…
Ryoko was wandering down the street thinking while window-shopping…
'What am I going to do? I need to make myself more useful or else Tenchi is going to kick me out of the house. Tenchi…what can I do to act more like Ayeka? Does he want me to act more like a bitch?' Ryoko smiled to herself. 'No, I suppose he means just acting more…I dunno calm I guess. Well, I just can't be as boring as the princess! And if Tenchi wants some boring, bitchy princess then that's alright with me!' Ryoko thought as she accidentally punched a store window. The glass shattered and the entire window was destroyed.
'Opps…' thought Ryoko.
"Hey, what's going on here!?" Demanded the storeowner as he inspected the damage that Ryoko had caused to his store window. "You better be planning to pay for this!"
"I uh…don't have any money," stammered Ryoko, 'But maybe my friends-"
"I want you to pay for this damage now! I'm calling the cops!" the storeowner shouted at Ryoko.
"That won't be necessary, Sir." A tall man dressed in black said as he pulled out his wallet, "Now how much for the window?"
The store-owner stood looking at the man in disbelief, "Well…I…"
The man in the black wrote down a number on the check and handed it to the storeowner who nearly fell over when he looked at it.
"Will that be sufficient?" asked the man.
"Ye..yes. Well I'll just leave you two alone." The storeowner said with a big smile on his face as he went back inside practically skipping.
"Wow, thanks, I didn't know what I was going to do…sometimes I don't know my own strength" Ryoko said as she turned to face the man. Then she noticed what he looked like. She hadn't realized that the man who had helped her was so…handsome. He had spiky black hair and deep blue eyes, and was wearing a very slick black suit with a solid dark blue tie…
"It was nothing. Allow me to introduce myself (and handing Ryoko a business card) I'm Adonis. I'm a top agent for Le Fay magazine."
"I'm Ryoko. (looking down at the business card)Le Fay magazine?"
"Yes, it's a fashion magazine. You know we're always looking for a new face and you…you have potential. Have you ever considered modeling?"
"Me? Model…but I'm…"
"Not beautiful? It's always the beautiful ones that never seem to know what they've got. Let me guess you're in love with some guy that doesn't give you the time of day?"
"How did you-"
"See it all the time. So what do you think? It seems to me like you are in need of a job, am I right?"
"A job? Where I can earn money?"
"Yes, of course. Our tops models do very well and like I said you have a lot of potential."
'Tenchi wanted me to help out somehow…if I were to earn extra money for the family he'd have to let me stay!' "When can I start!"
"Wow, easy now. How about we meet tomorrow at that restaurant over there." Adonis said motioning to a restaurant named "Le Refuge".
"French food in Japan? If you say so."
Ryoko turned to walk away when…
"Hey, it's getting kind of late. Would you like a ride home?"
"I dunno it's very far away…"
"Well, I don't think you've seem my car. Come on I'll take you there in less than an hour."
'This guy must be crazy.' Thought Ryoko as she looked at Adonis skeptically.
A few moments later…
"Whew hoo! You were right this car is amazing!"
"Yeah, it's a new experimental model. It's the fasted convertible in all of Japan!" Adonis said as he put on some shades.
"Oh, those are nice." Ryoko said admiring his sunglasses.
"We'll have to get you a pair. All the top model's have some"
Back at the Masaki house…
"Where's Ryoko?" Tenchi asked as he sat down for dinner.
"Humph! Why should you care where she is? You should know that that demon-woman skipped out on her chores again even after you had that talk with her. I think you should kick her out of the house. After all, she's only a nuisance."
"Ms. Ayeka-" But Tenchi was unable to finish his sentence because an odd sound coming from outside interrupted him.
Everyone ran out to see what the sound could be, was it another spaceship about to crash land in the lake? What they saw left them speech less. There was a red convertible, black leather interior, pulling up to the Masaki house. Inside was a very happy looking Ryoko with a very good-looking guy. For one split second Tenchi thought Ryoko must have met someone and eloped but quickly pushed that thought to the back of his mind. Someone wouldn't steal Ryoko away from him, would they?
"Thanks for the ride, Adonis. I'll see you tomorrow."
"Sure thing. It was very nice meeting you Ryoko." Adonis said with a smile that could rival that of Tom Cruise.
And the red convertible (black leather interior) sped away. Ryoko turned around to see everyone with their mouths hanging open and shocked expressions on their faces.
Everyone fell over.
Inside the Masaki house…
"You're going to what?" exclaimed Tenchi.
"You…you" Ayeka said as she passed out cold.
"Yep, I'm going to be a model!"
End of Chapter 1: thought I'd write a quick Ryoko gets Tenchi story. I kind of hit a small road block with my other story "Power of a Goddess" So what do you all think of this story? Might be cute huh?!
So what dreams were bothering Ryoko? Who is this Adonis guy, and is he competition for Tenchi? What's life going to be like for Ryoko as a model? And will Tenchi be…JEALOUS!
