Hi everyone! I meant to post this on my birthday so I can give all of you a surprise, but it didn't work out that way. But I figured posting it today would be good enough since it's only one day after my birthday. So, I decided to write a story involving Risa, Otani, love, heart break, tears, and a very happy birthday! How am I gonna do that? I have no clue! Just kidding :)! Sorry for acting kinda stupid, I'm just really hyper and happy!XD! So, I hope you enjoy this and please review when you finish reading! Oh and please forgive me if you think I'm taking too long on writing the chapters in Mean Or Sweet Love! I guess I have nothing else to say so...

Have Fun Reading!

CH.1: Birthday plan, Photo Shoot Disaster, and a Stalker?

Risa's POV

Hmm, I wonder if he'll forget? I was getting impatient waiting for Otani to come so I decided to walk close to the bench where he said to meet him. Every year is basically the same with him, he forgets my birthday, apologizes, buys me something, and then I forgive him. I shouldn't expect anything different this year from him. But, this time, I want it to be different. I don't want him to forget this year. Should I just tell him? No, that will just ruin the whole birthday spirit. Hmm...That's it! I'll just give him some hints about my birthday coming up! I won't exactly tell him, I'll just casually mention some things about birthdays and stuff like that. Okay, it's around two weeks before my actual birthday, so he has that much to figure out that my birthday is coming soon, let's see, what hints should I give him?

"Koizumi!"

My thoughts were interrupted when I heard the voice I know too well.

"What!?Why are you screaming in my ear? I'm not deaf!" I told Otani.

"Well, you sure seemed deaf by how many times I yelled and you didn't even hear me! What were you day dreaming about anyway?" Otani asks me, annoyed.

"Uh, nothing! So where are we going today!?" I asked cheerfully, trying to ignore the question.

Otani gave me a confused look, but shrugged it off. "Actually, there's this new Umibozu CD out, wanna go buy it?" He said.

"Of course!" I yell happily. Yeah, me and Otani are already twenty one and we still like Umibozu and doing what we used to do in high school. Almost nothing is different except that Otani is already a teacher and I'm a stylist and, I don't know how it happened, a model. I was just doing my job as a stylist and suddenly someone asked me if I could substitute for a model and I said yes. Ever since then, I became a model. It's almost like what happened when I had to model with Mimi, except I didn't become a model then. I'm still nervous infront of the cameras, but I'm getting use to it. So, our lives are really busy and it bearly gives us free time to spend with eachother. Sigh, I wish it was still like highschool where we saw eachother everyday and talked about things we both knew about.

"You're day dreaming again." Otani said, snapping me back to reality.

"Huh? No I'm not!"

"Then what did I say?"

"You're day dreaming again?"

"No, not that part before that, nevermind, forget it."

"Forget what?"

"You really are an idiot, aren't you?"

"Who are you calling an idiot, midget!"

"Who are you calling a midget, amazon!"

No, we can't do this. We have limited time to be with eachother, so I can't waste it on fighting with him. Ignoring what he said, I started walking to the CD store and started working on my birthday plan.

"Hey Otani, what day is it today?"

"The 21, why?"

"Nothing, I was just asking. And what month is it?"

"July, why are you asking me these weird questions?"

"Uh, no reason!" Damn, I have to come up with something better.

We entered the CD store and I instantly saw Umibozu's CD.

"Otani! Look!" I pointed at Umibozu's CD!

"It's Umibozu's CD! But look at the price." Otani said with a frown on his face.

"Eh?" I looked at the price and was filled with dissapointment.

"Sixty five dollars with fifty cents is too much. Let's go, Koizumi."

"Ehh!? Come on Otani! Pleese buy it for me! And plus, it's it's your obligation to buy me something!" I know I sounded whiny, but I really wanted it! And maybe this way, he'll figure out my birthday is almost here.

"I don't need to buy you anything! Now let's go, Koizumi." Otani said sounding annoyed.

He's right. He doesn't need to buy me anything now, but later. I mean there's two weeks before my birthday, so there's still plenty of time for buying presents.

"Fine. So where are we going now!?" I asked with a perky voice.

"I don't know, want to go get something to eat?" Otani asked looking up at me.

"Sure!" I said enthusiasticly.

Just then my phone rang.

"Hello?" I answered.

"Risa! Where are you! You were suppose to be at the photo shoot ten minutes ago!" My assistent, Ai, yelled.

"Huh? Really? Oh you're right! I'll be there in ten minutes."

"That's too long! We need you now!"

"Sorry, I gotta go, see ya at the photo shoot!"

"Don't you dare hang up on me!"

Click.

Well, I know I'm gonna hear it from her once I get there.

I sighed and looked at Otani.

"What happened? Do you have to go now?" Otani asked me.

"Yeah." I replied. Suddenly I had a great idea.

"Hey, why don't you come with me? That way we can still be together!" I said excitedly.

"I don't know, Koizumi." Otani said scraching his neck.

"Pleese! You don't have any papers to grade right now, do you?" I asked feeling the dissapointment wash over me.

"Yeah, but since it's just some few papers I'll go with you. But I'm not staying for the whole photo shoot." He said.

"Okay!" I said cheerfully.

-At the photo shoot.-

"There you are! We've been waiting here since forever! Come on we have to get you ready! You're gonna take a picture with another model so hurry up and get ready!

"Okay okay, I'll hurry up. Oh and by the way this is Otani my-"

" Yeah yeah, that's great. Now go to the changing room!"

Ai pushed me with all of her force to the changing room.

" The clothes you're suppose to wear are on the chair!" Ai yelled.

"Okay!" I yelled back.

I closed the door and looked at the clothes. Not bad, hmm, I wonder what Otani would think of this...

Otani's POV

I watched Koizumi leave into the changing room.

I don't know why I came here with her, but something told me I had to come. I don't know why, but Koizumi has been acting strange, almost as if she expects something to happen. Oh well, I'll try to ask her about it later.

"I watched that Ai girl walking every where and giving orders to people.

"Hey, Ai, is the model ready yet?"

A guy with ripped jeans and a white shirt asked.

"Oh Risa? No she's changing right now, you go change too."

"Okay." He said while walking away.

"Hey what are you doing standing there? Don't you see we're all busy here!" That Ai girl was now looking at me with an angry face.

"But I'm with Koizumi." I replied.

"Oh you're with Risa? Sorry, I tend to get kind of crazy at times. My name's Ai Nakamura." She said her voice getting softer.

"My name's Otani. I'm Koizumi's-"

"Ai! I'm ready!" I heard a familiar loud voice say.

I was about to say something until I saw what she was wearing.

I slowly looked at her from top to bottom shocked on how she looks.

She was wearing a sparkling grey sleeveless dress that only went to her thighs. She had grey high heels on and was wearing a charm bracelet with tiny hearts around it as her only jewelery. She had light make up on and had her hair curly. I couldn't stop looking at her. She had slender legs that were just impossible to stop staring at. And her face looked so cute with her hair curly and the light make up on. Then I stared at her lips. They looked so soft, I had the urge to kiss her not caring if there were people there watching.

"Hey Otani! Are you listening?"

"Huh?" I blushed when I realized what I was thinking.

"What were you thinking?" Koizumi asked getting closer to me. That made me blush even more.

"N-nothing! I just thought you look ridiculous with that dress on." I said trying to look truthful, although it was hard since every time I looked at her I felt like I was drooling.

She was about to say something back until a voice interrupted her.

"I think she looks beautiful." The guy I saw earlier came by wearing a grey tuxedo.

"Eh? Me?" Koizumi said looking clueless.

"Yeah, you look cute." The guy said with a smile.

"My name is Sasaki Akio, but call me by my first name pleese." He said smiling all the time. This guy was getting on my nerves. He's too nice and I don't like how he looks at Koizumi.

"My name's Risa Koizumi." Koizumi said blushing a little. Then she turned to me and said,

"And this short guy beside me is Otani." She said pointing at me.

"Hey-" I was about to say something until Ai interrupted me.

"Let's get this show on the road people! We don't have time to talk!" Koizumi and Sasaki obeyed and started preparing themselves. Suddenly it hit me.

"Wait, Koizumi and that guy are going to model together?" I asked Ai.

"Huh? Oh, yeah, they're modeling a couples outfit. I think it's really cute since both of them look perfect for eachother, don't you think?"

She obviously didn't know that I was Koizumi's boyfriend.

"Actually Nakamura she's my-"

"Wait just a sec, Risa, Akio! Look more like a couple! Why don't you try hugging eachother!" Nakamura yelled at them.

"Uh, okay." Koizumi said awkwardly. I started feeling angry when I saw that guy hugging Koizumi.

"Hmm, I should make them kiss, maybe that way they'll look more like a couple." Ai said thoughtfully.

"Are you trying to get them together?" I asked anger rising in my voice.

"Yeah! I think Akio might like her and, like I said before, they make a cute couple!" Ai said happily. I couldn't stand it anymore.

"Koizumi is my girlfriend!" I yelled, which I think was a big mistake since everyone heard me.

"Otani?..." I felt my face turn red from embarrasement.

.

Risa's POV

Koizumi is my girlfriend! I never thought I would hear Otani say that infront of a lot of people! But why did he say it.

Ai looked at Otani then at me then back at Otani.

"Really?" Ai asked as if she didn't believe it.

"Yeah." I replied.

"Uhh, okay, I think we're done here. Risa you and your, uh, boyfriend can go now." Ai said trying to act as if nothing happened. I went to the changing room and started taking of the dress. I don't know what anyone else thinks, but I actually felt happy.

Out of the photo shoot place

He hasn't said anything. This is getting kind of awkward. We are both walking together, but not holding hands or hugging eachother or doing what ever romantic couples do. Instead we're just in a really awkward moment which I am hoping will go away. Finally Otani broke the silence.

"I have to go now, I'll call you later, see ya." Otani said while walking away.

"No! Wait, uh, why did you yell that out in the photo shoot?" I asked. Otani's face got red.

"For no reason!" He said while looking away. I smirked.

"Oh, so you just said it so everyone can here that you're dating a model?" I said trying not to laugh. Otani blushed even harder.

"Shut up! I didn't say it because of that! So, don't get so pleased with yourself!" Otani yelled.

"Okay! Sheesh, I was just asking!" I said with an annoyed voice. I just wanted to know, he didn't have to get mad.

"Koizumi I-" Otani tried to say something but I didn't let him.

"Weren't you leaving?" I asked trying to give the best angry voice I could.

"Yeah, I am, but-"

"Then leave already, midget!" I yelled.

"Fine! It's not worth wasting my energy on an amazon like you!" And with that he stormed off. I started feeling guilty of what I did. And did he really mean I'm not worth his energy." All of this drama just in one day. And all I wanted was for us to spend more time together.

Suddenly, I felt someone watching me. I looked around, but I didn't see anyone. Maybe it's just my imagination. I left still with a feeling that I'm being watched.

Mystery person's POV (Sorry, can't tell you who it is.)

I watched her leave by herself. I think she suspected I was there, but didn't know where. I think this will be easier than I thought. You'd think following a tall model/stylist would be hard, but it's not. Mostly when that midget guy leaves her alone. All I have to do now, is sneak up from behind and-

Damn it! Why do people have to talk to her?! Shit, now I have to wait longer! Oh well, just be patient and she'll eventually be yours. Just have patience.

Wow, short pov, sorry, if you think this chapter wasn't all that long, but I tried my best! So, who do you think this crazy stalker is? Who knows, actually I know, but that's not the point. Anyway, did anyone like it? I hope so, because it took me so long to figure this whole chapter out! But if you didn't like it, I'm sorry and I will try to improve :(. This story was originally suppose to be a oneshot, but I changed it up a bit and I came up with this! So, you'll be seeing more chapters of this story! Please review and tell me what you think! That would actually be a great birthday present from you to me!(Even though my birthday was yesterday :D! ) XD!
