Kuro grunted, feeling his arms around her and lifting her up. She struggled in his hold, when his hand came over her mouth, muffling her angry swears. As he spoke, he dropped her onto his sofa. And not too gently either, her head hitting the back of it. She winced, glaring at him as he snapped at her.
“I only said I don’t want to see him touch you like that, or kiss you on the cheek in public, or generally do things that would make any normal man jealous!”
She scowled when he walked off to get something out of the fridge. And by the looks of empty bottles she’d noticed, it’d probably be another beer. When he came back with said bottle she wasn’t surprised.
“You want me to stop being so friendly with dominic..”
Dominic would be offended, considering his ethnicity. The holding hands part she could do, but it was in his culture to greet people with a kiss on the cheek, and even receive one in return. It was something he was sensitive about.
“I’ll walk you home.”
His sudden mood swing had her hold her tongue back. Him? Walk her home. Nope. She was still too pissed off to just waltz out together with him. And she knew he wouldn’t let her go all by herself. She watched him light his cigarette as he continued talking. Saying that if he saw another dance he probably would’ve found it beautiful. tch. typical of a man to say that when they’ve thrown their tantrum. She took a moment to calm down, take a deep breath, and simply gaze at him.
Not angry. Not jealous. Just stare at him. Funny how she remember’s the time her aniki and kimi-nee got into a fight. She wound up hanging out with kimi-nee and learned that despite her anger, she could tell that the woman sincerely loved her brother. And often, they always made up afterwards. Kimi-nee told her that when both parties where angry, it’s sometimes better to stop, and look at it differently. Then maybe you’ll see something you missed. Maybe you’ll feel something different.
And she did. Despite him being in a bad mood along with her. Sanosuke still planned on walking her home, still called her his girlfriend. And still trying to find an answer to this mess. And she still found him handsome, even with his glasses on. And she still lo…liked him a lot. Just how did they wound up here?
“Just what are we doing sano…?” she muttered, no longer angry, just…sad? She blinked, hearing the sound of something hitting the glass. Looking at the window, she saw that it was raining, pouring. And it made her chuckle, since when they met the second time, it started pouring down on them both.
“I’ll stay, but no more arguing. I don’t like fighting you.” She turned her gaze to look at him. “Even if your tipsy. I’ve no interest in quarreling anymore.” She then pointed at the window. “But if your still feeling hot, then there’s plenty of cold rain to cool you down. And just so you know, tomorrow’s sunday. No school sensei.”
Sano waited, puffing off his cigarette, while she went through her stages of anger and simmering down. He noticed the rain before she did, and had already pulled out the umbrella from the foyer cabinet. Fully expecting her to leave. He didn’t answer her soft question, even if she did sound sad. He knew he was her first serious boyfriend, so this was her first serious fight. She’d hopefully learn quickly that couples fight, and then fix things. It was natural. There’s no way you can spend so much time with someone, worry so much over their sake, have them worry over you, and not fight. Not humanly possible.
He was surprised by her answer, to the point of almost dropping his cigarette. He set the umbrella on top of the cabinet, next to the little basket for keys and stuff. Kicking off his shoes quickly, he went to where she was sitting on the couch. “Stay, huh? You know I mean for the night, right? As in, overnight. Returning home in the morning. The last Sano train is about to pull out of the station without you on it, Kuro-chan.” He ruffled her hair, blowing some smoke over his shoulder so it wouldn’t go in her face. Gave her some time to think on it while he put the cigarette out in the ash tray on the coffee table.
“Just because it isn’t a school night, you’re gonna pull your first all-nighter at a guy’s house?” He chuckled. “Is that it?”
She was glad he wasn’t angry anymore, and sighed as she looked at the window.
“Sano train..?” she snorted, rolling her eyes, she chose to ignore his teasing questions. “I’ll text aniki that I’m with…chizu-chan. And text her too. She’ll cover for me.” She turned her head to smile at sanosuke, her tone smooth and sweet, like a girls voice would normally sound on tv.
“Unless, you want me to text my aniki that I am here with you~” she was joking of course, but she knew it would make him flinch. Her brother was a scary force to mess with. His expression made her laugh, making her back into his sofa. Giggling, she texted her brother and her friend soon after, giving them a brief message and bidding them both good night.
“That should do it..” she mused, tilting her head back to look at him. “If you’d like, I can make dinner.”
She paused, her eyes going wide for a moment before she re-snapped her phone open. And started texting her brother.
“I almost forgot! Hopefully he knows that there are left-overs in the fridge.” she grumbled, frowning at her cell as she sent some intructions to her brother via text. She sighed, holding her forehead when he responded.
< Ok.>- Aniki.
She put her phone down with a sigh, then blinked when it buzzed again.
“Hm?” she glanced at the message.
<U ok hime??> -dol
Kuro smiled, she almost forgot to message him from all the arguing.
<ok. Ty. nite.>
She tilted her head at sano, her smile still soft.
“Well, you want me to make it or no? Unless your not hungry…”
