It was just an average night. Harima and Yakumo were doing their usual routine of just working on a comic for hours. For some reason, Yakumo seemed her happiest whenever she went to work with him. Then, suddenly, Harima asked her a question.

"Don't you just get bored here helping me here for hours?" Yakumo was surprised by this question. "Umm… no. I like helping you.", she replied. Harima had a confused look on his face. "Why?",

She started to blush intensely. "Umm…I…uhh…umm…" She couldn't reply. Her heart pounded furiously.

"That's okay, you don't have to answer." Harima said, with an estranged look upon his face.

Yakumo gave a sigh of relief. "Oh…um…ok…". After that no one said a word and she left an hour later.

'That was really awkward…', Yakumo thought to herself in the ambience of the menacing night.

As she returned home, the house was flooded with the barrage of questions thrown at her from her sister, Tenma. "WHAT HAPPENED OVER THERE ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH HARIMA WHAT WERE YOU REALLY DOING OVER THERE DID YOU KISS!?"

"No sis…it's not like that…we aren't really-" She was cut off by her sister's next barrage of questions. "But then why did you stay there so LATE?! It's like two in the morning! I couldn't sleep! What possibly takes eight hours to do?! Did he take advantage of you? I WAS SO WORRIED!"

Yakumo had a guilty look on her face. "Sorry for worrying you like that, sis."

/THE NEXT DAY LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL/

It was finally the next day. Tenma had told her friends about how Yakumo came home around two 'o' clock from Harima's place. Everyone was confused, but Eri had a furious and sad look on her face. She ran out of class 2-C.

Mikoto tried to stop her, but was unsuccessful. "What's gotten into her?!". Akira gave her a straight forward answer. "Wow, you really are slow. Eri likes Harima. She doesn't know it, but she makes it extremely obvious."

Eri broke into class 1-D, took Yakumo by the arm, and took her to the roof. "Just what the hell do you think you are doing?!" Eri exclaimed. "I don't know what you are talking about…" Neither did Eri. She did all of this by instinct. She really did not know what was going on. Eri gave Yakumo a menacing, but flustered look and let go of her arm.

"Sorry about that. I really don't know what got into me. Heh heh heh…" Eri said. However, Yakumo was still confused and frightened. Eri went back to class with stomping footsteps. Yakumo, however, stood in place for a couple more minutes, pondering what just happened. She was more confused than ever.

Later after school, she went to go meet up with her sister when she couldn't help but notice Eri yelling at Harima from afar.

"What are you doing to her at your house so late, Whiskers?!" Eri yelled at Harima. "What are you mad about NOW, you spoiled little rich girl?!" Harima yelled in response.

"I know what you're doing, you fat, ugly pervert!"

"WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!?"

"You know…!"

"NO I DO NOT!"

"With Yakumo, you idiot!"

There was a silence between them. Harima now knew what she was talking about.

"Oh. NOW I know. You're just a little jealous. You've always wanted SUM OF THIS!"

Eri blushed and smacked him across the face. "NO I'M NOT! I WOULD NEVER BE JEALOUS OF AN UGLY PERVERTED DELINQUENT WITH SOME TRAMPY YOUNGER GIRL!"

Yakumo looked disappointed. "…Trampy…?"

Harima's face went from comedically angry to gravely serious. "Listen, Rich Girl. I don't know what you heard, but Yakumo is no tramp. She is as innocent and kind as Tenma. Just not as stupid."

Those words made Yakumo blush. To know that he felt that way for Yakumo was enough to please her.

"Just when did you become so serious about her, Whiskers?" Eri asked with a malicious smile across her face. Harima went back to his comedic anger.

Yakumo decided to walk home alone this time, thinking happily of what Harima said.
