A/N: Thank you to everyone who bothered to follow this story and leave me your wonderful reviews. Sorry it's taken so long, but the end is finally here! I hope you like the ending as much as the rest of it.
Around four hours later I was lying in Kurosaki's bed, still wide awake. Kurosaki was sleeping on the couch as usual.
For hours I'd been trying to get to sleep, but nothing I did was working; my head had been spinning too much.
"Kurosaki kissed me. Kurosaki said he loves me."
It was hard to think of anything else.
Rena would be congratulating me and patting me on the back if she were here, Kiyoshi wouldn't be able to believe it and Haruka…
"Haruka would be telling me to make a move."
I sighed inwardly at the thought. As if I could do something like that, when I wasn't even sure about Kurosaki's feelings. What if he meant he loves me like a master loves his #1 servant?
"Yeah right, why would he kiss me if that was it?"
Argh, this was all too much!
"Kurosaki can't be in love with a puny little A-cup girl like me. It's not possible! This is probably a trick of his just so he can torture me. I hope that guy goes bald!"
If I didn't know Daisy's identity, I'd message him right now and tell him all about it, but…
"Daisy is Kurosaki. The same Daisy who says I'm his most important person."
Daisy…what's going on? Was that kiss nothing but a dream?
Suddenly I heard a rustling sound out in the living room; someone was moving around.
"Kurosaki," I thought drowsily. "What's he doing so late at night?"
Without thinking I glanced at the clock on the bedside table.
"3:00 A.M…. Hmm… it feels like I'm forgetting something… Why is Kurosaki up at 3 AM?"
I suddenly remembered a day years ago when Soichiro had to go on a trip for his work.
"I wish I could take you Teru, but my company will only pay for one person! I'll be back soon, so don't worry. Can you believe I get to go to Hong Kong? On a real airplane!"
"Just make sure you bring me some souvenirs Oni-chan," I said with a fake scowl.
"I will if you promise to wake me up at 3:00 A.M."
"Huh? Why that early?"
He crossed his arms and tried to look smart.
"My plane leaves at 5:00. I have to get up that early or I'll miss it!"
I jumped out of bed before I knew what I was even doing and threw open the door. Kurosaki was at the kitchen sink and looked up in surprise when he heard the door bang open.
"Kurosaki!" I shouted and flung myself at him.
"Woah! Teru! What's going on?!"
"You tell me what's going on!" I gripped his shirt tightly, feeling tears sting my eyes as I looked up at him.
"Why are you up so early? What are you doing?"
"Teru, just calm down –"
"Don't tell me to be calm! What are you doing? Your plane leaves at 5:00! Are you still planning to go?"
"Wait a second-"
"- Are you still going to leave? I guess what just happened meant nothing after all!"
"What are you saying-"
-"If it helps I'll just pretend I never found out about Daisy's identity. Things can go back to the way they were. Just please don't leave me Kurosaki!"
Wet, hot tears were rolling down my face by the time I finished, and I suddenly felt so immature for doing this. If Kurosaki wanted to leave I shouldn't ask him to stay like this.
Kurosaki's face was shocked and confused.
"Teru, you…" he stopped, unable to finish. His hand came up and brushed one of my tears away. Suddenly he smiled and hugged me so tight it knocked the breath out of me.
"You think I'm leaving? You're such an idiot!" he laughed.
"What? Aren't you?"
He drew back so I could see his face which was grinning.
"Of course not. What gave you that idea?"
I felt the blood rush to my face.
He raised an eyebrow. "So what? What does that mean?"
"You…Your plane," I stuttered, growing more embarrassed by the second. "It leaves at 5:00, and my brother always said it's good to leave two hours before the time on the plane ticket says… I thought…maybe…"
"What?" He was enjoying this too much.
"I thought…you might be sneaking out in the middle of the night to catch your plane…"
He broke out into raucous laughter.
"Don't laugh!" I shouted. "It's an easy conclusion to come to when I hear you walking around in the middle of the night!"
"I was getting a drink stupid."
"I'm not stupid, and I don't care if all your hair falls out! Every strand!"
His expression softened all of a sudden.
"Why did you think that though?" Suddenly his face was irritated.
"Didn't you get the message?"
He hugged me tight and buried his face in my hair.
"I love you. Did that kiss not make it clear? Do I need to go further than that to prove it to you?"
"B-But…those plane tickets-"
-"Those plane tickets don't mean anything. Maybe I was planning to leave before things could come out in the open about Daisy, but now they're out in the open."
"But you tried to leave anyway!"
"Yeah, I tried, but I was no match for you. You were right to call me a coward," he said, now serious. "I thought running to another country was a better idea than facing you about my past mistakes. You're not the idiot, I am."
"…What made you change your mind then?"
"Well, a little A-Cup brat came running up to me and told me she loves me. And I was dumb enough to let the truth slip out, so now I guess I have to live with what I've done. Sorry I didn't tell you I wasn't going. I thought you'd figure it out on your own, but I guess those good grades don't count for much.
"What are you trying to say!?"
"I'm trying to say…" he bent down close to my ear," let's go out on a date soon."
"Huh? But I h-have finals-"
He let out an aggravated sigh.
"I'm asking you to be my girlfriend!"
"Yeah. So what's your answer?"
"I…well…" This was so unreal, I had no idea what was happening anymore!
"Yes!" I shouted.
"Took you long enough."
He lifted me off the ground and kissed me until I felt my head spinning.
"I love you, puny-little-A-Cup girl." When I could finally breathe again I answered.
"I love you too, stupid baldy."
