Chapter 21: Happiest man on Earth

Minako laughed herself to tears. She couldn't believe how silly she was.

"Hahaha, funny right?"

"Uh...yeah..." Akihiko said, trying to hide the fact that he was in reality very hurt.

"Hahaha, I just can't believe I thought you were proposing to me. Hahaha..."

"Y-yeah..." Akihiko playfully punched Minako in the arm. "You silly girl you."

Wiping a tear from her eye, "I know, I know. Hahaha...I can't believe I really thought you wanted to marry me. Sorry for misunderstanding you."

"Y-yeah...I mean...I'm sorry...No I mean...your welcome...No I mean..." Shaking his head, "Actually I don't know what I mean...I just don't know..."

After finally seeing the hurt expression in Akiihiko's face Minako asked, "What do you mean you don't know? What's wrong Aki?"

"Well I...uh...It's just that...You thought we were getting married but now you don't? I don't get it. If you know I didn't mean to propose to you then how did you find out?" Grabbing her by the shoulders, "Who told you?"

"I-"

"WHO?"

"A-Aki your hurting me."

Akihiko laughed, "Now you know how I feel..."

Minako didn't know how to respond. Fortunately Akihiko released her and stepped back.

"I'm sorry Minako. I don't know what came over me. It's just that...I love you soo much. And love makes you do crazy things...I'm sorry Minako."

Smiling, "Don't worry about it. It's my fault for misunderstanding you."

"No Minako that's not what-"

"No Aki, it's ok. I don't mind that you didn't mean to propose to me. I'm just happy that Minato told me before I got carried away. Haha..."

"Minato?"

"Hm...Oh that's right. You don't know him. He's this really nice guy who tried to help me find Koromaru. He's really easy going. I feel like I can tell him anything. Actually I kinda told him everything. Everything about myself and that's how he found out that I thought you proposed to me. But he said you were just asking me to be your girl, not your wife. Hahaha, I still can't believe I was that close to trying to marry you. Haha..."

"Each time she laughs I feel like I'm gonna cry." Akihiko thought.

Minako sighed, "Well, I promised Fuuka I'd help her cook today. Later-"

"Minako?"

"Hm?"

"I still wanna marry you."

"Huh?"

Akihiko got down on one knee and pulled out a box.

"Screw what Minato said." Opening the box only to reveal a diamond ring Akihiko went on to say, "I wanna marry you. So, will you make me the happiest man on Earth and marry me?"

"No."

Akihiko could feel his heart break into two.

"Because that guy over there is the happiest man on Earth. Just look at him."

The guy Minako spoke of had the hugest smile on his face as he rode down the street on a fluffy unicorn that was really just a horse with a fake horn attached but no one had the heart to tell him that.

"I'm sooooooo happy! I'm soooooo happy!" the man sung at the top of his lungs.

Akihiko blinked. "I see...he does seem very happy."

Minako nodded.

"Sooo can you make me the second happiest man on Earth?"

"No."

"Why not?"

"Because that guy over there skipping behind the guy with the unicorn that's really just a horse with a fake horn attached is the second happiest man on Earth. Just look at him."

It was true. The guy she spoke up did seem pretty happy. Almost as happy as the other guy.

Akihiko rolled his eyes, "Look will just agree to marry me already?"

"But Minato said-"

"If Minato said jump off a bridge would you do it?"

"Well he can be pretty convincing and-"

Akihiko shut Minako up with a wet one right on the lips. Not a kiss but the wipes. Apparently she had crumbs on her mouth. But right after that he gave her a kiss. A hershey kiss and promised that someday they would get married. Unable to refuse she merely smiled, nodded and ate her hershey kiss.

Author's notes: I'm starting to forget whats going on. I'm gonna have to reread this thing. Haha...
