"Hi Yuuko, Susumu," I said, warmly shaking the Kamiya's hands with a grin. I was jittery and slightly nauseous, but I knew I had to keep my cool until the announcement. "Come on in. My parents are already here and the food is already on the table."
"Thank you, Taichi. How has soccer been going for you? School?" Susumu asked, clapping me on the back. Susumu had always loved soccer and it gave us something to bond over. It was a good thing too, seeing as he wasn't especially pleased to hear that his daughter was dating someone so much older than her.
"Soccer is going great. We've won every match so far and the scouts have been eying me too. If we win the championship this year, I'm assured a spot on a semi-pro team. If we don't, I'll at least get in to a college team. I hear coach is supposed to be retiring this year too, so I might be able to take up the coaching position at the high school and make money there while going to college. I just have to make sure I keep up the straight A's and play like I have been," I said. I was trying to make everything sound easy. It might make Susumu want to kill me less when it came time to tell him of his impending grandfatherdom and the loss of his baby girl to me.
"That's great to hear, Tai. I have to make sure that you'll be able to take care of my baby girl when the time comes, you know. Sounds like you'll make a fine husband for her one day."
I flashed my famous Yagami smile at him. "I hope so, sir. She means a lot to me and she deserves to be taken care of."
"You're a good man, Taichi. Let's eat though, I'm starving. What are we having?" he asked as we sat down at the table.
"Uh, rice? And some unagi, I think. I'm not really sure. Kari said that she'd cook as long as I tidied the place up and set the table. I'm also on dish duty when we're done."
He laughed at that as we sat down. "That's the way to do it, Tai. I happen to know that Hikari can cook quite well. She had to learn to survive her 'Kaasan."
I laughed, passing the unagi. "That's what I've heard."
For the next few minutes we were busy getting food on our plates and beginning to eat. Eventually though, we got to the point of small talk. Yuuko spoke up first. "So Noa, how is the club going?"
My otousan finished off his piece of unagi before speaking. "It's going wonderful, Susumu. Ito industries has never been better."
"That's wonderful to hear. I've always wondered how you managed to run such a successful business and raise Taichi to be such a responsible young man. Many business men like you just can't be role models for their sons, but it's obvious that you were around for him," Yuuko replied. I was a little surprised by the question. I had never thought about how difficult it must have been for him to be such an integral part of my life, especially seeing as I wasn't actually his son.
"It was quite easy, actually. I get off work at six am. I'd be home no late than six-thirty. When Taichi was really little, this gave me time to change into casual clothes before getting him up and off to school. When he was in elementary and middle school, I drove him. I made sure he always knew that we could talk about anything and I just loved on him, like any good otousan should. I knew I had to make sure that he really got that I didn't care that he wasn't my son and that I wasn't even there for the adoption process. I raised him, so he was mine."
"Oh? I didn't know Taichi was adopted," Susumu said, a brief look of worry crossing his face.
It was my okaasan's turn to speak. "I was getting older and didn't have any prospects for marriage, so I decided to adopt a child, Taichi. A few months after I got Taichi, Noa came along and swept me off of my feet, promising to take care of both Taichi and I."
"I think he did a fine job myself," Kari said, leaning over a giving me a peck on my cheek.
Yuuko and Susumu smiled, but I could tell it was strained. Adoption wasn't common in Japan and was not widely accepted.
"I'm glad they adopted me. They've always shown me a lot of love and supported me. They tried twice as hard as some parents. They both made it to all of my important events and they've supported me in everything I've done," I said, trying to ease the tension. "I mean, I may not have the same last name as 'Tousan because it's was so difficult to change, but still. Even when I got held back a grade, they made sure that I knew they still loved me, even though they were upset."
After that they seemed to visibly relax some. Okaasan too the chance to speak up in the silence. "Thank you, Taichi. I was wondering, why were we all invited over tonight? I'm sure this is not just some sort of social call. You haven't had us over for dinner since you moved out almost a year ago!"
Kari squeezed my hand as I sucked in a deep breath. "Actually, Kari and I have an announcement to make."
The rest of the table remained quiet as Kari and I stood up. I took one last calming breath before raising Kari's hand and announcing, "We're getting married!"
Our parents waited, blinking. They were unsure what to say until Yuuko blurted out, "You're pregnant."
She was met with a resounding chorus of 'What?' from everyone else in the room, including Hikari and myself. I personally had not been aware that it was that obvious that I had knocked Hikari up by mere engagement.
"The only way Susumu would let Hikari get married before she turned eighteen is if she were pregnant. She's only a little over sixteen. There's no reason for them to get engaged for another year and a half unless she's pregnant."
Our parents thought about this for a moment before my 'Tousan looked at me. "So?"
I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. Instead Kari told them. "Yes, I am pregnant."
And that was when Susumu came across the table at me.
Luckily, soccer had taught me how to dodge fairly well and I rolled slightly to the right, causing Susumu to grab my shirt instead of my by the neck. He hoisted me up and slammed me against the wall. "What the fuck did you do to my daughter?"
It took all of my strength not to retaliate, but I stayed limp. It was the best way to get out of this without injury to either party.
"We had a condom malfunction. I'm going to take care of her and this baby though, sir. I love her, and I'm dedicated to making sure that her and this child have an excellent life, even if it's at a detriment to me."
"How do you expect to do that, Tai? You're still in high school. You can barely take care of yourself," he growled.
"I think I'm doing ok," I said. "I've been living on my own for a year now and I've got a sizable savings. I'm sure that I'll be able to do this. It's not going to be easy, but I've been saving money for years and I've got a job. I just have to devote myself to them."
Susumu stared me down, checking for any signs of dishonesty before setting me down. "You have no idea what you're getting in to, son. Welcome to the family."
With that he left, walking outside with a cigarette in hand.
As soon as he was out of the room, 'Tousan grabbed me by the ear and forcefully dragged me into the bedroom.
"What the hell were you thinking, Taichi? You're nineteen! I know I taught you the proper way to use a condom!" 'Tousan shouted at me. "Did you not think about how this was going to affect your life? And Kari's? She's a Sophomore in high school, Taichi. If you can't completely support them, then she has to drop out of school! It's not like either of you will be making a whole lot of money, son. You may just end up living in a tiny apartment like this your whole lives!"
"I used a condom, 'Tousan! I swear I did. It broke and we thought that it was because we were roughhousing when we were done. I thought we were ok!"
He rolled his eyes. "Plan B, Taichi! Plan fucking B! I know, it's really expensive and it's a little difficult to get for someone underage, but you could have asked Sora to pretend it was for her. Hell, you could have asked me. We sell Plan B at XTC, Tai!"
I blushed. I had never really thought of any of that. I had just wanted to believe that we were safe, and went on my way. I hadn't thought something like this could happen to Kari and me. I hung my head.
"I'm sorry, 'Tousan."
He sighed, running his hand through his black hair. "It's ok, Taichi. What's done is done. You're 'Kaasan is going to be quite ecstatic. She was beginning to talk about adopting another child. You saved my hide."
I laughed. "So I'm not getting a little brother or sister?"
"Not if I have anything to say about it."
With that we left the room, everything having been fixed. We came out to see Yuuko and 'Kaasan speaking animatedly with Hikari. They stopped when we walked into the room.
"Is everything ok,?" 'Kaasan asked.
"Yes, Rin dear. Everything is fine. We just needed to have a discussion, man to man. Are you almost ready to go? It's getting a little late," 'Tousan said.
'Kaasan smiled. "Of course. Would you like us to walk you out, Yuuko. I don't think that Susumu will be coming back in."
"It's probably for the best. Kari, you behave yourself and send me a text tomorrow to tell me how you're doing, ok? I do expect you to pop in occasionally, you know. I'll make you liver, spinach and eggplant shakes. They're supposed to be delicious and will be great for the baby."
I watched Kari visibly try not to cringe. It was hardly perceptible to anyone else, but I could see the disgust ripple across her face. This wasn't what intrigued me though.
"Is Kari staying here tonight?"
Yuuko smiled softly. "I think it's for the best that we start getting used to the idea. You are going to be married in two months after all."
"Thanks, Yuuko. I'll make sure that I get her in to school on Monday and take great care of her."
"For what it's worth, I think Susumu overreacted. You're young, but you'll make a fine husband and otousan. We'll talk about it more when he's calmed down though. I'll see you soon," she said, following my parents out the door and closing it behind her.
"So, I was thinking, we have this whole apartment and we've got all weekend to break it in," Kari said suggestively.
I groaned. "After the way your otousan came after me, I think my genitalia has retreat to the safety of my rib cage."
Hikari put her hands around my waist, placing us hip to hip and leaning back. "Is that a challenge?"
A/n: Another chapter done and I stayed on schedule! Woot! Also, Plan B is a great idea if you're looking to avoid babies. I'm not sure if you can legally sell it in a club in Japan, but just go with it.
Satoshi Vampire A- Thank you so much for your kind review. I read somewhere where incest is instinctive if you don't know you're related. Thank you so very much for reading and I hope you continue to enjoy. :)
Vigatus- Oh, the shit will definitely hit the fan. It's a little difficult for it not to. Things are becoming a little more complex, but it isn't too bad yet. It's mostly just that the parents are miffed that they're going to be grandparents, but still. It can only go downhill.
Taiora-AAML-Serena-Darien- Another update! Glad you find this interesting.
KoumiLoccness- I might have found a way to add a hint of Koumi. It does seem like incest is where most of the hentai comes from too... guess that's just how the Japanese are.
