Prompt #89: “I’m not leaving you!” - Send me a Pairing and a Number
One day, I arrive early at Tres Spade to serve Eisuke his coffee as usual. I’m not in uniform yet, but everyone knows by now what our relationship has become. I’m always anxious to see him despite how long we’ve been together. As the elevator takes me to the penthouse, I straighten my clothes out. Nothing fancy, but you don’t want to look less than perfect for him.
When I arrive at my destination, I hear a few voices. The other bidders are there and they’re talking with someone I don’t recognize. I decide to make them all coffee then since they’re there.
“Ah, if it isn’t my favorite princess,” Baba says as he come up from behind me. “Come to see us caffeinated?”
“Yes,” I say as I set six cups on a tray along with the finished pot of coffee and all the cream and sugar they could use.
“Ever the considerate hostess.” Baba always sweet talking to me just told off my shoulder as I take the tray to the common area where the bidders are.
I can see they’re talking to a very gorgeous woman that’s shamelessly fawning over them all. But she seems particularly close to Eisuke. I can’t overreact as it could be a business partner.
“Sor, you simply must join me one day for dinner. I’ll make it worth your while.” Okay, she really is hitting on everyone.
“Now, now, princess. Do you really want that frown to turn you upside down?” Baba was doing his best to divert attention from Soryu as the mobster was looking about ready to kill.
“That frown can turn me upside down anytime,” she said with a wink before turning to me. “And who is this little cutie?”
“Just one of our maids,” Eisuke said as he sipped his coffee with a satisfied look.
“Only just,” the woman said with interest and a hint of something more. “She doesn’t seem like it and you know I have an eye for woman.”
What?! I spilled some of the coffee and apologized profusely as I cleaned it up.
“Anyway, it’s an ever grateful pleasure that you’re letting me use your hotel for my show.” She then stood and was much taller than I. Eisuke stood to walk her out. “Let me know if you ever need company. I’ll surely make it a time to remember.” She then caressed his face just before the elevator doors closed.
I cast my gaze down and serve the others. Why wouldn’t Eisuke want to be with her? Tall, beautiful, fashionable, clearly has a way with words… I sigh inwardly and try not to be noticeable when Mamoru spoke up. “Why the sour face, kid?” His lazy face greeted me as I looked up.
“Nothing’s the matter. Just have to get to work soon that’s all…”
“Last I checked, you work for us so, technically, you are at work,” Ota pointed out with a smirk. “If you do a good job, Koro, then maybe I’ll give you a reward.” Usually that would phase me, but all I did was finish cleaning up and carry the tray back to the kitchenette.
Footsteps come up behind me. “You really think I would go for someone like him?”
“Huh?” I turned to him surprised. Him?
“Technically, yes,” Soryu grumbled in on the conversation. “Till his operation anyway.”
I was confused and it was clear on my face. “Soryu, you’re confusing the pup.”
“How can she not notice with those manly hands?” Mamoru smirked with his cigarette half cocked between his lips. “That was Michelle Leboux, only his name is spelled M-i-t-c-h-e-l.”
“You mean the big up and coming fashion designer?” I couldn’t believe I didn’t notice before that that was the first major transgendered designer of the fashion world.
“And he’s one of the newest attendees to the auctions,” Soryu said matter-of-factly.
“I thought we agreed we would refer to her as ‘she’,” Baba frowned as if they were speaking ill of her.. him…
“Well, she isn’t here so she won’t know, now will she?” Ota put great emphasis on the word as if to run it in Baba’s face. A grin played on his face as if he was hiding a giggle.
“Regardless of gender, it was merely business. She always comes here and flirts with everyone. She actually has a soft spot for Soryu and Mamoru.” Now there was a wicked grin on Eisuke’s lips as the mobster and detective groaned in unison.
“Leave me outta this,” Mamoru protested. “Broads are all trouble, whether they are broads or not.”
Soryu remained silent, but he didn’t have anything more to say.
Ota and Baba started snickering and making fun of them.
“Anyway, you already know who you belong to and I already have what I want.” His voice was like a soothing balm (along with the guys messing with each other) to my heart and I relaxed as I turned back to Eisuke. “All you have to remember is to stay by my side and nothing or no one will come between us.” Damn that smirk of his. Always winning me over. He kissed my cheek, a rare tender moment when he’s usually more flashy. Taking my hand, the man I love led me to the stairs and and to his penthouse suite despite my protests I had to go to work. He was the boss, after all, so there was no use trying to fight him over what he wanted me to do.
