Lets begin then.

- Last time -

"Hurry up, dog face!" Airi scoffed, still pissed that she wasn't Satou's partner.

"Yeah, yeah. Hush up, would ya?" He replied lazily.

HOW DARE HE? DOES HE NOT KNOW WHO I AM?

"Whatever. It seems you'll be useful to me, I want you to help me with my plans."

Even he could be of some use, yes?

"Whatever." He didn't have anything to do, really, anyway.

- This time -

Hitoha's POV

The plan was suppose to perfect, why didn't it work! I panicked, pacing back and forth.

Since Chiba and me are working together, he said it'd be a great time to start with the plan.

First off, I split up Satou and Futaba. Mitsuba was going to her friend's house, so I didn't have to worry about her.

After splitting them up, I had to get Chiba and Futaba alone together. There would be no more paper for the project, so Satou and I would go get some more paper.

Then, the door would "magically" get locked from the outside, and they would have to wait 30 minutes in there untill one of us would come home. Chiba would tell her his feelings, and hopefully everything would go well.

But apparently my life is screwed.

Here I am in this small shed with Satou.

Okay. Breathe in, breathe out. Calm down.

Since that incident, I can't even look him without blushing 20 shades of red - is that even humanly possible?

- Hours ago -

"You and your partner will make a science project. One of you will write the report, and the other one makes the project. It's due in 3 weeks. You may silently study now," The teacher announced and left to get copies of the note for the science projects.

After class, Satou and Futaba planned when they would work on the project.

"Futaba, can we do the project at your house?"

"Sure. Afterschool at 3:00, is that okay?" Futaba asked.

"Yeah, see you then." Satou waved goobye.

"Do you want to do the project at my house?" Hitoha asked.

"Yeah sure. You know the plan?"

"Yeah, I do. I'll see you at three."

- 3:00 -

Hitoha's POV

The doorbell rang.

"I'll get it!~" cheered Futaba.

"Hey, Futaba. Hey, Hitoha. Where's Mitsuba?" Chiba wondered, looking around the house.

"She's at her friends house," I replied.

He glanced over at me. I nodded.

Let the plan commence.

"Should we start working?" Chiba suggested with a cheerful smile.

I can't believe he can smile like that and have a complete dark side to him! What is this called again, split personality? Ah yes, that's it.

"So you think you can get Futaba alone?"

"I'm going to do it right now. Just play along, okay?"

"Got it.''

Satou and Futaba opened the door.

"Shall we begin?"

There was chatting and planning, and eventually we came to a realization.

"We need some paint," Chiba stated.

"Us too," Satou pointed out.

"There's some paint in the shed, right?" Futaba rubbed her chin as she spoke.

"I'll go get some," Satou and I volunteered in unison.

"Why don't you both go get some?" Chiba suggested, catching onto the plan.

"Come back soon~" Futaba chirped.

Satou and I started towards the shed.

When we reached the wooden storage house, Satou clapped his hands together. "Okay, lets find the paint."

For what seemed like eternity, the paint was nowhere in site. I was sure it was in there, but it seemed to be hiding from us both. Where the hell did that paint go?

Suddenly, I heard a creaking sound. I looked back to see that THE DOORS WERE CLOSING!

Mitsuba's POV

"I left my cell phone at the house. I'm just gonna go and grab it, 'kay, Miyashita?" I asked the tall girl.

"Yeah, alright." She nodded, offering me a smile. "Come right back, though."

I nodded back and ran back home. After grabbing my phone and exiting the building, I spotted the she in the corner of my eye.

"Hitoha, you should really learn to close the door behind you," I muttered. Sighing, I locked the shed and ran back to Miyashita's.

Hitoha's POV

I gave Satou a returned, worried look. This is the complete opposite of what I planned!

It was so dim in the shed, I could barely see anything.

I started to feel around for Satou.

"Satou where are you?" My arms felt around the many pieces of junk in the shed.

"Right here," Satou replied. I followed his voice.

"Here?" I asked. My question was soon answered when I crashed straight into his chest. I blushed fiercely, stumbling back a step.

"H-Hitoha?" He stuttered out.

I looked up to see his face.

"Ah, I-I'm sorry!" I stumbled over my words.

Satou's POV

OH... MY... GAWD! I pinched my nose, feeling like my nose would bleed any minute. Not only is she beyond adorable, but I felt her! Not intentionally, of course, but... I can't get it out of my head.

"Are you okay, Satou? Did I really hit you that hard?" Guilt was etched in Hitoha's words.

"Ah, no no! It's not your fault," I assured, waving my hand to put the subject aside. "Anyway, let's calm down. I'm sure Chiba and Futaba are going to be worried and come looking for us."

Chiba's POV

"We don't have paper, either. Let's go run to the store, Chiba!"

"Maybe we should stay he-" I was interrupted by Futaba's arm.

Futaba carried me on her back as she ran to the store.

Well, it isn't exactly my plan, but at least I get to be alone with her, I shrugged internally.

After grabbing the paper, Futaba paused in thought. "Actually, while I'm here, I might as well get a new swimsuit. The one I have right now is too small."

THAT'S MORE LIKE IT! I cheered in my mind.

But, I couldn't shake of the feeling that I was forgetting something... Oh well, I'll remember later.

Eventually, I heard the sound of a curtain opening and looked up to see something eye-popping.

"Chiba how does this one look?"

She was wearing a frilly pink and orange one piece swimsuit with a small pendant on the chest. Looking closer, I noticed that the pendant had a swirly heart etched into it.

I gave a thumbs up and smiled. "This one's good, but you should try on some more. You might like another one, better."

Hopefully, she'll wear a two-piece, next time.

"Thanks, Chiba kun!~"

Futaba entered the dressing room, once again.

Suddenly, some kid appeared out of nowhere, screaming for his mother.

"Mommy? MOMMY!" He ran all over the place, in panic.

The young boy accidentally pushes me into the curtain.

"Ouch!" I complained, rubbing my head.

"F-Futaba!" I exclaimed, apologetically. "Some kid just pushed me in here, sorry."

"No, it's okay," Futaba really seemed not to understand why it even mattered.

Right when I was about to stand up, I noticed that Futaba's foot was on my jacket. The next thing I knew, my infatuation was on top of me - still in the swimsuit, might I add.

Both of us were frozen. Stuck in that position, we stared at each other intensely for forever and no time at all. In the end, our lips met in a heart-throbbing kiss.

Finally... I thought to myself as I moved my lips against hers. Finally, I get to feel the touch of these precious lips...

In the middle of our activity, the curtain opened.

"Alright, love birds, purchase your stuff and get out." The manager sounded exhausted as well as pissed as she spoke.

As soon as we were out of the building, we both burst into laughter.

"Let's go home, now."

Author's POV

"It's been 10 minutes, and they still haven't searched for us!" Hitoha spat coldly.

Satou muttered sarcastically, "Yeah, some friends..."

His eyes wondered the room for a moment before he came to a realization. "THAT'S IT!"

"What happened, Satou?" the female questioned, alarmed.

"Look, there's a window! We're saved!"

Hitoha glanced at the window, too aware of one little thing. "It's so far up, how are we gonna reach it?" Hitoha hated heights...

"Could you stand on my shoulders?" the only male suggested.

I won't let myself die just because of my fear of heights, she decided and nodded.

Satou scrunched down and Hitoha climbed up on his shoulder.

I'm not gonna fall, I'm not gonna fall. This isn't scary at all! the teen tried to convince herself.

"Ahhh!"

"Hitoha are you okay!" Satou suddenly looked up.

Sparkle sparkle~

"S-stripes?"

Satou suddenly had a nose bleed.

Hitoha was losing balance, but Satou was to distracted to notice. In the end, the tumbled to the ground, Satou falling on top of her.

"Soft~" Satou grinned, rubbing his cheeks against Hitoha.

"Kyaa!" Hitoha squeaked.

Satou finally snapped out of his 'ditsy' state.

"S-sorry, Hitoha!'' He quickly got up only to lose his balance.

Satou, once again, fell atop Hitoha. This time, though...

As he fell, he tried to stay up, his head being the last thing to meet solid. When his head fell onto Hitoha, it fell right onto hers, theirs lips meeting in an accidental yet electrifying kiss.

"Soft..." Satou mumbled breathlessly.

The shed door swung open. "Satou, Hitoha! Where are you?"

All was silent the second they spotted the two with their lips together.

The end.

How was that did you like it?

Anyways thanks for reading.

What going to happen next?

High five~ Longest chapter yet :D
