Summary: (OHKURA APPEARS IN THIS CHAPTER :DD! YAY!) Ohkura regrets what he did in the past when ... (Sorry for the short summary xDD)
Ohkura Tadayoshi is Shige’s bestfriend. Someone Shige would always turn to whenever he has problems. What Shige doesn’t know is, Ohkura Tadayoshi loves Shige. He loved him ever since they met. Ohkura Tadayoshi would also never forget that day, that day when he did the worst mistake of his life.
Ohkura Tadayoshi couldn’t hide his feelings anymore. He knows he has to confess. It’s either now or never. He waited patiently for Shige at the park near his apartment. The air wasn’t like what he expected, cool and breezy, instead, it was cold and chilly, like cold ice darts thrown against his face. Ohkura wrapped his arms around himself for warmth. He glanced at his wristwatch, ’11.00pm’. Ohkura wondered if Shige had received his text message because he has been waiting for two hours and his ass was almost frozen to the metal garden chair. Ohkura knew he had to wear two layers of pants, but he didn’t want to look like a enormous snowmen while confessing, and besides, he thought it was only for a short while. It was also his fault for sitting at the metal garden chair and not the wooden bench because he told Shige that he wouldn’t be on the wooden bench. “Aww, shucks! I’m half frozen, where is he?”, Ohkura thought.
“Ohkura-kun?”, Ohkura looked up to find a pair of familiar eyes staring back at him. Ohkura gave him a warm smile and was returned with a similar one, only that it makes his heart skip and his heart feel warm and fuzzy inside. “You asked me to come, what’s wrong?”, Shige asked. “Oh!”, “Gomen!”, Ohkura was too occupied staring at Shige’s face, a face Ohkura would describe as beautiful, a face that would never fail to make him smile, and a presence that would forever make him feel contented. Ohkura wanted to confess, but it’s as if his tongue was frozen despite receiving warmth by his hot breath and wet saliva. “Say it!, Say it! Say it you bloody coward!”, Ohkura’s heart was screaming at him. Shige stared at Ohkura with a confused expression. “I ……”, he stammered. “Dammit Ohkura! You just have to confess!”, his heart was screaming at him for the second time.
Ohkura’s thoughts were distracted by Shige’s mobile phone. Ohkura stared at Shige with incredulity. “Moshi, moshi”, Shige answered with a cheery voice. “Oh! It’s you!”, Ohkura noticed Shige turning red and gave an euphoric smile. “Umm, yeah, I’m not doing anything at the moment ….. yeah, I’ll be there in 10mins . ..”, Shige reluctantly looked back at Ohkura, “yeah … okay .. bye”. “Gomen Ohkura-kun, something important came up”, Ohkura snorts at the word ‘important’, “I really have to go now, hontou ni gomen! Bye!” Shige turned his back against Ohkura and sprinted like a scared cat, not waiting for an answer. Ohkura stood there, pissed off and angry at himself. Ohkura knew who called, only one person would make Shige give that sheepish grin and make Shige blush. It was even more obvious when the night was silent. Silent enough for Ohkura to hear the guy on the other line. The cold wind blew violently against Ohkura. “Ryo…”. He cursed under his breath.
Ohkura tried to look on the bright side. Maybe he could confess some other time. Some other time when his cowardliness would not try to get in his way. Some other time when he was brave enough. But something inside tells him that there’s no some other time.
Ohkura was woken up by the violent vibrations of his cell phone. He glanced at the clock, ’00.00am’. “WHO’S TRYING TO WAKE ME UP AT IN THE BLOO ------“. Ohkura silenced himself when he saw the name on the screen. “Kato-kun”. He didn’t hesitate to pick up his phone, he flipped open his phone and answered.
“Moshi mo ..”, he stopped when all he heard on the other line was uncontrollable sobs.
