I was working my butt off at dance practice. My teacher was definitely trying to get me to be really tired after practice.
I had gotten interested in American dance soon after Ikuto left after Nikaidou's wedding.
I turned my music on and stretched a bit before doing a back bend. I was quite flexible now.
I was now 15 years old. Ran was cheering for me in the corner and Miki was diligently working on drawing me doing a back bend.
Su and Dia, on the other hand, weren't paying attention to me at all. I giggled and did a flip into a standing position. I did a few cartwheels and my body felt a lot more relaxed.
"Alright, Amu, you can go home now." My teacher said giving me a nod. I put my iPod back in my bag and started to walk home.
I was wearing my dance shorts and a tank top right now. Ran, Miki, Dia, and Su were asleep in their eggs in the pouch inside of my bag.
I stopped somewhere on my way home and stopped where I heard Ikuto play violin for the first time. I smiled remembering it and I put my bag down in the corner and started to do a few flips.
It was my favorite place to practice. I grabbed my iPod and speakers and turned on one of my favorite American songs.
It was called Rude Boy by Rihanna. I stretched a bit before closing my eyes and following the beat. I just let all my ideas out and did whatever I wanted.
I did a quick twirl and dropped down on my knees and did a backwards handstand to get up. I really liked dancing and gymnastics.
I did a few flips in a row and I sang along with the song. I did a few more flips and took deep breaths. I opened my eyes and sank down in a splits position.
My iPod changed the song to another one of my favorite American songs. Find your Love by Drake.
I giggled and started to run around like a weirdo. I felt so giggly right now.
I took a deep breath and did a few flips before doing four cartwheels in a row.
"Are you trying to hurt yourself?" I heard someone say during my fourth cartwheel. I looked over and let out a scream and fell on my butt.
"Oww," I said getting up and rubbing my butt.
I glanced over to who I heard the voice from. I glanced over and saw that Tadase was watching me in amusement.
"Shut up." I said before hitting his shoulder. I giggled and Tadase started to tickle me like crazy. I screamed in laughter and fell down with Tadase under me.
"You're crazy." I said getting up. I went over to my bag and lifted it up.
"I'll walk you home Amu." Tadase said taking my hand in his. Tadase and I weren't dating anymore, but he was my best friend.
"Alright then," I said pulling him with me. Ami was waiting for me at home since I had promised to go on a walk with her. She was six years old now, but just as adorable as she was before.
I kind of missed having a tiny three year old Ami. She had always been really cute.
Ikuto was supposed to call me later; he found his father last year and had been spending time with him.
Ikuto was planning to come back in a few months with his father. He had promised to come back to me and he was staying true to his promise.
"So how is your relationship with that new chick?" I asked Tadase when we were standing outside of my house.
"Boring, Kiseki doesn't like her and I don't like her that much anymore." I rolled my eyes. Kiseki didn't like any of the girls that Tadase dated.
"I'll talk to you tomorrow." I said kissing Tadase's cheek. I walked into my house and saw that Ami wasn't home. She probably went on a walk with her friends.
I went upstairs and put my bag down. I opened the zipper and Ran, Miki, Su, and Dia popped out and put their eggs where they were usually kept while I was home.
I threw off my clothes and grabbed a bra and panties from my drawer. I still remember the one time in the locker room in fifth grade when Saaya was flaunting her AA breasts.
I had decently sized 36 C breasts, and I was happy with them. I giggled at the thought and put my under garments on. I put a black and white patterned dress on and stretched before sitting down on my bed.
I threw the covers off and buried myself under them. I was pretty tired after practice. It was the summer right now and my second year of high school would start in a few months.
I sighed and closed my eyes. Su turned the lights off and I relaxed and tried to fall asleep. There was something jabbing into my foot and it was annoying me.
I kicked whatever was there and was quite glad when it moved away. I opened my eyes and put my hand near my foot.
It was just the humpty lock. It probably fell off my necklace. I put it down on my nightstand and tried to sleep again.
My bedroom door opened and I saw Ami standing there crossing her arms.
"Onee-chan, don't sleep!" She said pulling me out of my bed. I fell on the ground and hit my butt again.
"Ow!" I exclaimed. I stood up and looked at Ami.
"We're visiting Utau-chan today!" Ami said grabbing my arm and tried to pull me out of my room. I yelped in surprise and Ran, Miki, Su, and Dia followed me.
I suddenly remembered that Utau wanted to speak to me about something. She still had her two guardian characters.
I put the humpty lock back on my necklace and grabbed my purse and took Ami's hand before walking with her to Utau apartment. I opened the front door with my key and came in.
Utau's apartment was probably the dirtiest apartment I had ever seen. Su yelled and made Dia, Miki, and Ran help her clean. Su was always like this when we came over here.
"Utau!" I yelled while Ami occupied herself with her phone.
"Hey Amu," Utau said walking into the living room. She was wearing her hair down, and not in ponytails, which was surprising.
She always had her hair up. My pink hair was up in a messy ponytail and I was wearing a headband.
"You look nice with your hair down." I said smiling at Utau. We were pretty much best friends now.
"Thanks, so I need to talk to you." Utau said looking at me with full seriousness.
"Alright," I said nodding. I told Ran and Dia to watch Ami.
I went to Utau's bedroom with her and she closed the door and sat down on the bed.
"What is it?" I asked looking over at her and raising an eyebrow.
"I'm scared to meet my father after such a long time." Utau blurted out. My eyes widened and I looked over to Utau.
"But Ikuto is only coming in a few months right?" I asked looking straight at her.
"He came back yesterday." Utau admitted silently. I took a deep breath and then shouted at her.
"How could you not tell me?" I yelled crossing my arms and pouting at her. She just burst into laughter.
"I assumed that Ikuto already told you." Utau said trying to contain her giggles.
"Well he didn't I missed him so much! Why didn't he try to tell me?" I asked looking at her. Utau got a guilty look on her face.
"Well….I may have told him you were dating Tadase…" Utau said silently. I took a calm breath and sat next to her on the bed before grabbing a pillow and hitting her with it repeatedly.
"Hey! Cut it out!" Utau said falling on the floor. I straddled her and continued to hit her with the pillow.
I heard her bedroom door open.
"Hey Utau what are yo−," I glanced up and saw that Kukai was standing there frozen in shock.
"Hey Kukai…" I said getting off of Utau. She was dating Kukai now; I really wanted to know what he was thinking of when he saw us on top of each other.
"I'll just come back later." Kukai said leaving as quickly as he could. I just started to laugh.
"That was awkward." Utau said giving me a glare.
"What is it with you and pillow fights?" Utau said rolling her eyes. She picked up the pillow from the floor and threw it at me.
"Why would you tell Ikuto that I was dating Tadase?" I asked giving her a glare.
"Well I thought you two were dating," Utau said shrugging.
"I guess it doesn't really matter, I'll probably end up running into him somewhere, and then I can explain that Tadase and I aren't dating." I said with a sigh.
"You've changed a lot in the last three years, I think he'll be a bit surprised when he see's you, you aren't as short as before, and you have been visited by the breast fairy." Utau said smiling at me mischievously.
My face turned into a bright shade of red and I glared at Utau.
"It's true though!" Utau said running out of the room before I could throw something at her.
I sighed and walked out of the bedroom. Ami was sitting on the floor in the living room and playing with Ran. Ami could still see my guardian characters, which was a bit surprising.
"Ami, let's go home now." I said taking her hand. She got up and said bye to Utau. Su had finished cleaning and was triumphantly walking behind me.
"See you later." I said waving to Utau. We got home pretty quickly and I realized that it was already close to eight o'clock.
I character changed with Su and started to cook something simple that Ami would actually eat. She was an extremely picky eater now.
I decided to just make curry and rice. Ami was sitting in the living room watching TV while I cooked. My parents both worked really late. For the next two weeks they weren't going to be in town either, so I had to take care of Ami.
I finished cooking and put down a plate for Ami.
"Ami, come eat." I said putting a plate down for myself. Ami turned the TV off and walked over to the dining table before sitting down.
Ami happily munched on her food and I finished eating pretty fast. I put my plate in the sink and Ami continued to eat.
"Put your plate in the sink once you're done, and then go to bed, okay?" I said looking over at Ami.
"Okay onee-chan." Ami said going back to eating her food.
I went upstairs to my bedroom and Ran, Miki, Su, and Dia were already in their eggs ready to go to bed.
I heard my phone ring and didn't need to look to know who it was before answering.
"Hey," I said sitting down on my bed and leaning against my pillows.
"Amu, come outside, I'm at the front door."
"I'll be right there." I said disconnected. I knew it was Ikuto.
I was wearing my night clothes already so I quickly threw on a skirt and shirt before pulling my hair into a pony tail before going downstairs and out the door.
Ami was in her bedroom sleeping when I checked on her so I went outside and silently closed the door behind me.
Ikuto was standing by the gate of my house. The moment he heard my feet against the pavement he turned to me.
He gave me a small smile and I couldn't stop myself from walking over to him and pulling him into a hug. He froze for a second before his arms came around my waist and he buried his face into my neck.
"What if the little king sees us?" Ikuto asked against my neck.
"He's not my boyfriend, so why would he care?" I asked in response. My arms tightened around his neck.
In the two years that I hadn't seen him I had realized just how much I had truly loved him. He was around twenty years old now.
"I missed you." I said truthfully. I kissed his cheek and pulled away. He pulled my hand into his and pulled me with him.
"Let's take a walk." Ikuto said giving me a small smile. I smiled back and nodded.
"You found your father, have you talked to Utau about everything yet?" I asked while we walked.
"Why are you worrying about Utau?" Ikuto asked raising an eyebrow.
"After you left Utau and I kind of became best friends." I said shrugging.
"I was watching you dance today." Ikuto said suddenly.
"Really…" I asked a bit nervously. I didn't like it when people watched me dance.
"Mhm," Ikuto took his hand out of mine and I immediately turned to him.
"Tadase is in love with you, isn't he." Ikuto said staring straight into my eyes.
"No he isn't, and he knows I'm not in love with him anymore." I denied immediately. I knew that there was probably a chance that Tadase did love me but I didn't want to think about it.
"Then who are you in love with." Ikuto said looking into my eyes again.
"My black cat," I said smiling a bit.
"So, Amu, you admit you love me," Ikuto said smugly. I hit his shoulder and rolled my eyes.
"You aren't my black cat, I was talking about Yoru," I said sticking my tongue out and starting to walk back to my house.
"I doubt that." Ikuto said taking my hand in his once more as he walked me home. He was acting quite cute at the moment.
I couldn't deny that I was attracted to him. He was my black cat; he just didn't know it yet.
"I want you to meet my father." Ikuto said when we were almost back to my house. My eyes widened in shock and I looked at him.
"Why do you want me to meet him?" I asked completely turning towards him. He smirked and shrugged. He leaned down as if to kiss me on the lips and then planted a kiss on my forehead.
"I'll see you tomorrow." Ikuto said disappearing. Ikuto was definitely the best at disappearing.
I smiled and walked back into my house. I went up to my bedroom and I knew I was grinning like a dummy.
Ran, Miki, Su, and Dia were all sitting on my bed smiling at me.
"Let me guess, you all followed Ikuto and I?" I asked glancing over to them. All of them smiled sheepishly and I couldn't help but think about how cute all four of them were.
I changed my clothes and couldn't help but dream of Ikuto the whole night.
When I woke up I was feeling very content with how my conversation with Ikuto went.
I had really missed him while he was gone.
I went to Ami's room and saw that she was still in bed. She always slept a lot during the summer. I lifted her out of bed and she woke up and rubbed her eyes.
"Go to the bathroom, okay?" I said putting her down. I pushed her towards the bathroom and she nodded sleepily before walking into the bathroom and closing the door.
I went downstairs and my mouth was wide open when I saw Ikuto lying on the couch downstairs.
"What are you doing here, what if Ami sees you!?" I questioned him once my shock wore off.
"You should really start locking your balcony doors." Ikuto responded.
I sighed and hit my head. He turned to me and grinned before continuing to lie down on the couch.
He stretched a bit and I saw his abdominal muscles and bit my lip to get rid of my dirty thoughts. I went to the kitchen and Su rushed downstairs and character changed with me.
I was a terrible cook and Su loved the kitchen and she didn't want me to risk destroying it with my cooking.
Ikuto walked into the kitchen and sat down on the counter and just watched me.
"Stop being a stalker!" I yelled pushing him off of the counter. He grinned at me and just hopped back up on it.
I groaned and just ignored him and cooked. He was getting on my nerves right now, and he had only been back for a day.
"When are your parents coming back?" Ikuto asked continuing to stare at me.
"In two weeks, and before you ask, no, you aren't allowed to sneak into my bedroom every night." I said continuing to cook the omelets.
"Aww, you're ruining my fun Amu." Ikuto said flashing me a grin. I rolled my eyes and ignored him after that.
"Amu?" He said trying to get my attention. I continued to ignore him and he chuckled before getting up from where he was sitting.
He walked out of the kitchen and I heard my front door close, so I knew that he left. I finished making omelets and Ami walked downstairs to the kitchen.
"I'm hungry," She said looking over at me.
"I'm making omelets." I said looking back at her.
I finished making our omelets and she grabbed her plate before going to the living room. She sat on the floor near the TV and she turned it on before eating.
I ate at the dining table and got my phone from where it was lying on the couch. I saw that I had a few texts from Yaya.
I called her and held the phone to my ear with my shoulder and continued to eat.
"Amu," She screamed into the phone. Yaya was such a loud person.
"Yes Yaya?" I asked back.
"Can you come over to my house today? Ami can come too and play with Tsubasa." Yaya answered. I could tell she just didn't want to be home alone with her three year old brother.
"Alright, we'll be there in an hour." I responded before disconnecting the phone. I watched Ami while she ate and tried to answer the question that had been in my mind since last night.
Why would Ikuto want me to meet his father?
Yay! A new story! I recently finished watching Shugo Chara the show and I finished reading the manga as well. I always knew that Amu and Ikuto would end up together. I would love to know what you guys think about this story, so please leave a review!
