makes you so late?”
was surprise to be greeted by a cold voice from Maki instead of the usual
quick and small kiss. It was a very tiring day for the super idol, drama
filming by day and magazine shoot by night, so the last thing Niko need is to
have a quarrel over a silliest thing.
had filming and magazine shoot, that’s all.” She said while gently putting all
her stuff down to the table. Maki shot her with a cold look, as if refusing to
believe what Niko just said. Sensing something must be wrong, Niko approached
the red-haired girl.
wrong?” She asked in a confuse tone, trying to touched Maki’s cheeks m. But
much to her surprise, the latter harshly brushed her hand.
not fucking touch me.” She said again.
the hell is wrong with you, Maki?!” Niko retorted, not wanting to swallow
anymore of this crap. She was tired from work already, no need to go through
something like this.
this true?” Maki reached out to the table and shoved Niko a gossip magazine to
her face. There was an article on the opened page that featured a blurred
picture of a young man and girl walking together on a street. The article
claimed that it was the super idol Yazawa Niko with her manager going on a
jaw dropped. She couldn’t believe Maki found that pesky gossip article. It
caused quite a buzz on her office too, but Niko knew she never done anything
like that. She wouldn’t want to hurt her fans and more importantly she didn’t
want to hurt Maki. It was all a fake article created to bring her down right on
the peak of her popularity.
this the reason why you always come home so late??” Maki said angrily, pointing
her finger towards the article.
please Maki you know better than anyone else that it is a goddamn fake article!”
Is that so? Then how come it comes with a very detailed description on how your
couldn’t believe Maki actually fell for that cheap looking article. Maki’s
smart, Niko knew that.
supposed to be smart dammit! Can’t you tell it was photoshopped or something?!
Besides the picture is blurred, it could have been anyone else!” Niko shouted
back, defending herself in every way possible. But Maki isn’t going to let her
guard down anytime soon. She slammed the magazine down to the floor and started
to yell again.
won’t believe you Niko! I know I’m busy but is this how you repay me? After all
I have done for you?! Do you even love me?! Oh right, you love that ‘manager’
on the picture now. Not me.”
was stunned, Niko was slapping her hard on her face. Her cheek redden and a
mark can be clearly seen. In front of her Niko was crying, sobbing loudly with
tears freely falling from her red orbs.
you dare say that I don’t love you.”
was already tired from work and now you’re giving me this crap?! What happened
to the trust in our relationship?! I said it’s a fake article, me and my agency
can prove it if you don’t believe me. But please… please don’t say that I don’t
love you.” Sobbing, Niko tried so hard to fight Maki back. She was devastated
by the fact Maki said that she didn’t love her. The article really affected
Maki and Niko knew that, but still she couldn’t help but to be upset.
hurts me you know, if this true… if you’re going out with another person.” Maki
finally spoke, her tone had soften a little bit.
already plan a conference to clarify it next Tuesday… My fans were hurt too,
“Niko-chan, I didn’t mean to yell earlier.”
Maki had calm down, she tried to reasoned with Niko. She didn’t think there was
a possibility about it being fake and all earlier. She was also tired, just
came back from her doctor work, when she saw that article. To think Maki just
abruptly accused Niko like that….
I slapped you… did it hurt?” Niko said, hands gently caressed Maki’s swollen
cheek. Maki shook her head.
talk this through.” Maki said, eyes locked on the twin tailed girl’s red orbs.
believe me when I said it was all fake….”
just… I just can’t bear the thought of you slowly slipping away from me… What
if I wake up and then the news is true? Can you promise me that it will never
happen?” Maki said, her voice was shaky and her body was trembling.
do you trust me?”
trust me, I won’t leave you for all eternity.”
smiled, admitting her mistake for doubting Niko earlier.
sorry Niko-chan.” Maki said softly,
hands toying with Niko’s stranded locks. She then gave her a soft and gentle
kiss, as an apology.
ok, sorry for being busy and makes you worried too.” Niko said again after they
broke their kiss.
then Maki pulled her into a long and warm hug.
