And now it is time for Aira and Shou's side story. It was pretty late at night when Aira headed home. Shou couldn't walk with her because he had to stay even
later. Aira acted like she didn't mind and ran out of Pretty Top. However she was actually pretty scared. Then it came to the point where she was being stalked.
She was really frightened but the only thing she could do was keep walking. She eventually went to the park and hid in the small playhouse. Aira was shaking with
fear that she would be found but mustered up the courage to do the only thing that she thought she could do. She took out her cell phone and called Shou.
"Shou san…" Help me…"
"Aira, what's wrong?"
"I don't know. I think someone is following me."
"Do you know who?"
"No… Please save me… I'm scared…" She started to sob quietly.
"Where are you?"
"The park. Why?" He hung up. "Shou san? Shou san?" She started sobbing and huddling into a ball, repeatedly calling his name. A figure finally appeared over Aira
and the house. Aira was trying to escape by crawling out of the playhouse but the figure also went into the house and caught her hand and pulled her into them.
She couldn't escape in that position. Tears rolled down her eyes and she started to cry loudly before the figure covered her mouth and went really close to her
face. Another shadow appeared over the house. It was a drunk old man. That was the real identity of the stalker. After he left, the figure leaned into Aira's ear.
"Aira, you don't have to be scared anymore." She started sobbing once again making Shou gently have to cover her mouth or they would attract more bad people.
He leaned and put his head down touching her neck. After being in that position for a while they finally let go so he could walk her home.
"Don't let go of my hand ok?"
"Un." Aira looked even more helpless because her face showed how much she cried.
"Next time, no matter how busy I am, you have to tell me if you're going home late at night alone. I don't know what I would do if something happened to you."
Aira blushed. She just mumbled. "Ok?" Shou put his face in front of her face. They both blushed and looked away as she said yes.
"Thank you for saving me Shou san." She looked down as he looked up smiling. As they approached her house, Shou let go off her hand. However she grabbed his
sleeve. He turned around to see Aira pouting cutely. He felt like something was about to happen. He bent down a little.
"Aira…? What's wrong…?" Before he could finish she tugged at his sleeve and leaned up and kissed him. Shou could only see Aira's closed eyes before he knew
what happened. She looked up at him after she let go. "Aira…? Why'd you do that?"
"Even I want to take make the first move sometimes!" She then ran as fast as she could into her house. She waited behind the door to see his reaction. He was
"You know I really do love you Aira." She ran headfirst into her bedroom after that. He left when he saw that Aira's bedroom lights were on. She was rolling around
on her bed smiling at her accomplishment. Her family was outside all spying at her behavior.
"I wonder what's wrong with Aira tonight…"
"Hiro kun, something good must've happened between Aira Chan and Shou kun.
"What? Mama what are you talking about?"
"She's probably love sick." Itsuki cut in.
"Mama will have to hear all the details later. Fufu~" Ome hummed as she went downstairs with Itsuki, Uru and Eru. Hiro kun on the other hand was crying his
heart out that night despite knowing it would happen after he met Shou for the first time, when he saw them "flirting" before Halloween.
