DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN YUMEIRO PATISSIERE!
Chapter 6: I'll Love You and ONLY You
"N, Mak, Mm, Makoto!" Amano said as she broke out from their kiss. Honestly she didn't want to stop but something was bothering her.
"What's wrong Ichigo? Did I hurt you? Do you need time to breath?" Kashino asked with a concerned look on his face.
"It's n-not that. It's just, what will happen now? Are we really together? As in like boyfriend and girlfriend together?" Amano asked while her face turned into a shade of cherry red.
"W-well. Of course! Starting today, you're my girlfriend, got that? So you shouldn't really be that close with the other two. I'm not saying that you should ignore them! Just, you know, don't do anything that would make me jealous. Like kissing them or letting them put your arms around you." Kashino asked with an equally embarrassed look.
"Hai!" Amano said with a cute smile on her face.
Kashino found himself blushing at her smile; he came in near to give her another kiss. The lips against Amano moved gently but were surprisingly hesitant. It was a very, very sweet and soft kiss... the perfect kiss for Amano that day. Unable to help herself, Amano placed her arms around Kashino's neck. After a few seconds, they parted. It was longer than their first however their faces were pink from it.
"Ma-Makoto, what about Andou-kun and Hanabusa-kun? There is a chance that they might not accept us. I don't really want to hurt their feelings because I still think of them as my closest friends. What should we do?" Amano asked.
"I feel the same way. I hate to admit it but I'm more concerned of Hanabusa. He's usually talking about you when you're not around. He had a crush on you, way before you even entered the academy. It seems like he has found your documents accidentally and ever since that time, he hid his feelings because he said he'll reveal it at the right time. I'm also worried of Andou too. You're his first love." Kashino said with a troubled look on his face.
"Now you made me feel even worse, baka." Amano said as she looks down on the floor.
"Gomen, Ichigo." Kashino said as he reached out and embraced his lovely brunette. Amano rested her head in his shoulder and returned the hug.
"What should we do? I'm really worried that they might not take this so lightly." Amano asked again.
"Well, for now I think we should just hide our relationship. I know it's wrong but we'll reveal it to them slowly. Leave some clues but not those big ones. Those small enough clues that will help them be able to cope up and accept our relationship. I got to admit, this isn't going to be easy." Kashino explained.
"But we'll get through this, together." Amano said with a smile on her face as she removed her head from Kashino's shirt and looked at his eyes.
She places her hand on his cheek and gave a quick peck on the lips. Kashino gave a soft chuckled seeing that her name does apply to who she is. She was really sweet. Even sweeter than strawberries (if that was possible). He felt lucky to be Amano's first boyfriend. He also felt lucky too. She is the only one who made him fall head over heels for her! He had tons of admirers but she was the best! No one else could beat her that's for sure! He looked at Amano with a sweet smile and she returned with a grin. Then there was a knock on the door.
"Ichigo-chan? Are you feeling okay? May I come in?" a familiar voice was heard.
The couple looked at each other. Amano remembered that there was a spare closet at the other end of the room so she told Kashino to hide there for a while. Kashino saw no other choice so he followed what Amano said.
"Ichigo-chan?" the voice called out again.
"You can come in. Sorry for the wait." Amano called out as soon as Kashino was in the closet.
"Hai. Ichigo-chan, are you okay? Were you sleeping? I hope I didn't disturb you or anything." Hanabusa said as he came in from the door.
"Oh, it's okay. I wasn't sleeping, just thinking you know." Amano said and gave out a fake smile.
"Souka. I brought you some lunch. Tell me, what happened after Rumi-chan talked to you? You never came back after that. I just heard from sensei that you weren't feeling well. Did she do anything to you?" Hanabusa asked.
"Oh nothing. We didn't talk much, my head suddenly began to ache and she just advised me to go back to our room." Amano answered.
"I see. It's a funny thing that Kashino and you disappeared. Well, I went to my dorms but I never saw Kashino there. I just assumed he was by the river. Am I right, Ichigo-chan?"
"I don't really know about Ma- Kashino." Amano said and kept putting up her façade.
"What did you say? Makoto was it? Hmmm. He didn't confess to you or anything, did he?" Hanabusa said as he came closer to Amano.
"N-n-n-n-no! I-I-It's not like h-he confessed or anything. I was thinking of something else! Like Mac and Cheese!" Amano stuttered.
"Mac and cheese? Are you sure that's what you were thinking? Hmmm. I don't think so." Hanabusa said as he came nearer and nearer to Amano.
Amano tried her best to get farther away from him but Hanabusa held her arms up and placed his hand on her chin. She kicked and struggled but it was futile. Hanabusa's body was over her body. They suddenly heard a loud noise from the closet.
"Ara, ara. Ichigo-chan, don't tell me you have rats in your closet? I should just get it myself." Hanabusa said and he got off Amano.
"M-m-matte Hanabusa-kun! Don't! I'll just inform the principal about this."
"Oh, okay. About what I just did, don't take it too seriously, I just love that much." Hanabusa said with a wink.
There was another noise from the closet.
"This is bad. It seems to be restless. Are you sure you'd take care of it?" Hanabusa asked.
"Y-yes. Hey! Isn't that the bell? You better go Hanabusa-kun or you'll be late."
"You're right. Then take care of yourself. I love you Ichigo-chan." Hanabusa said as he kissed Amano on the forehead.
"H-hai. Take care." Amano replied.
As soon as Hanabusa left the room, she locked the door and spied if he was far enough already. As soon as the coast was clear, she let Kashino out of the room. Instead of seeing a very angry Kashino, she saw the complete opposite, a very sad and calm Kashino. As soon as he went out of the closet he gave his girlfriend the biggest bear hug could give her. She hugged him back and assured him that he's the only one for her. She promised that no matter what happens, she'll never fall for someone else other than Kashino.
"I'll really kill that damn narcissist if he ever lays another finger on you! I'll let this pass for now." Kashino said with fire in his eyes as he lets go of Amano.
"Ma, ma. Calm down. I really am at fault here. I almost blew our cover." Amano said with a sad expression.
"It's okay. I did plenty of things that almost revealed my presence here. It really pains me, this façade of ours. I don't know how long I can keep my anger in." Kashino said with his fist clenched.
"I know it's hard on you, but remember I'll be here for you. Just imagine something sweet to forget your anger, okay?" Amano held Kashino's hands a pushed them down hoping that it would calm him.
"Okay. Well, you better get some rest, it looks like you haven't really recovered and there are still bags under your eyes. I have to go back to my room before anyone inspects it." Kashino said as he got up.
"Haaaai~! You take some rest too okay? And promise me you won't stress yourself?"
"I promise." Kashino said and licked Amano's forehead.
"What you do that for?!" a surprised Amano exclaimed.
"Disinfection. I don't want that narcissist's slime all over you. Now I shall apply the bandage." Kashino then pecked her forehead.
Amano giggled she loved how Kashino is full of surprises. But now she knows that Kashino must really go. They each waved each other goodbye and went back to what they were doing. Amano lay on her bed and hugged a pillow. It smelled like Kashino. It was funny how fast everything went. She smiled and thought about everything that happened.
I love him so much! Amano bellowed in her head.
I knew it! I do love her! Kashino thought as he went back to his room.
