Mika:
Jesus Christ!!!

She flinched.

Mika:
What the hell, dude?! Are you trying to scared me to death?!!

Yamada:
Is it working?

Mika walked toward the dinner table.

Mika:
What are you doing here? Don’t you have to go to Osaka?

She twisted the cap and took a gulp of the cold water down her throat.

Yamada:
It got canceled due to the weather.

Mika:
Even god doesn’t like you.

She whispered. Mika took a sip of water.

Yamada:
I heard that.

Mika instantly choked.

Mika:
I’m just playing <nervously chuckle>

Yamada glared at her.

Mika:
Sorry.

There was awkward silent between them.

Mika:
Hey!

Yamada looked at Mika.

Mika:
Wanna have a drink?

-[Next]-

Mika:
W-why the room is spinning?

Yamada:
Maybe it’s because you drank 9 bottles.

Mika:
Oh~ No wonder.

She collapsed on the table.

Yamada:
<scoff> How pathetic.

Yamada took a sip of beer.

Mika:
You’re right… I am a loser.

Yamada glanced at her.

Mika:
Today, I saw them… Keito and Rina was at the ramen shop. And they look sooooo happy <chuckle>

She lifted her head up and faced Yamada.

Mika:
Their lives are perfect. The picture of them together was flawless. And it make me think of my life… My life as this person, Mika Tanaka, is so boring. I have no place to live, not a penny in my pocket and future? I don’t have a future. I would always end up as a loser.

She crashed on her arms.

Yamada:
<sigh> Baka. Why would you be jealous of them? Honestly… I wanna be like you even just for a day… I wanna be carefree, laughed at myself when I make a mistake and speak my mind without affraid the consequences. But I can’t. I have to be Yamada Ryosuke, the famous idol that everyone look up to. I can’t make a mistake not even one because I was destined to be this person.

He noticed a teardrop fell upon Mika’s cheek. Without thinking, he leaned forward and swiped away the tear.

Yamada:
You’re truly a weirdest girl that I’ve ever met.

He stood up.

Yamada:
Come on. I’ll carry you to your room.

He grabbed Mika’s arm and wrapped it around his neck. Yamada assisted Mika toward her room. Suddenly, he heard.

Shida’s eyes filled with tears as she looked into Yamada’s eyes. He used his finger to swipe her tears.

Yamada:

Sure.

He smiled.

Yamada’s car stopped in front of the main entrance of the hotel. He waited for Shida to existed the car, but he didn’t hear any movement.
