Track #012: Ooki Na Kuri No

28 May


Mika pushed the entrance door and skipped out of the building. She inhaled the fresh air and exhaled. A huge smile appeared on her face.

Mika:
Ah!

She remembered.

Mika:
I should call the bastard to tell him the news.

She reached inside her shoulder bag and grabbed her phone. She dialed Yamada’s number. The dial tone lingered and then she heard Yamada’s voice.

Yamada:
Hello?

Mika:
Hey! Go home early, ok?

She instantly hangs up.

-[Commercial Shoot]-

Yamada flinched back once he heard a loud click.

Yamada:
That girl.

He made a sour face.

Akira:
Yamada!

Yamada turned around.

Akira:
Break’s over!!!

Yamada:
Uh! I’ll be right there!!!

He shouted back.

-[Yamada’s apartment]-

Mika stepped inside and slipped off her shoe. She looked around the house with a smile on her face. She inhaled and then exhaled.

Mika:
It’s cleaning time~

She smiled.

-[Next]-

Mika used her energy by pressing the damp mop against the floor and sweep the cherry wood floor, back and forth. She moved on to cleaning the furniture. Using the damp cloth, Mika scrubbed the furniture to spotless shine. Mika marched into Yamada’s room, carrying a bucket of water and the cloth. She placed the bucket down the floor and dip the cloth into the water. Mika drained the water out of the cloth and used it to scrub the dark brown drawer beside the nightstand. As she shine the top of the water, Mika noticed the water lingered in the cloth dripped down and find it way into the small crack of the drawer.

Mika:
Oh, no!

Mika quickly opened the drawer.

Mika:
Really?

She saw Yamada’s clothes are mostly wet.

Mika:
Oh~ He gonna kill me.

She whined as she removed the clothes from the drawer. While grabbing the wet shirts out of the drawer, Mika noticed a small box hidden underneath the layers of clothes.

Mika:
Huh? What’s this?

She placed the shirt that she held down the floor and grabbed the baby blue box. Mika opened the box.

Mika:
<gasp> Th-th-this-

The shiny diamond rock amazed Mika.

Mika:
Th-this is r-real?

She pulled out the ring and placed it in her ring finger.

Mika:
Whoa~ It fit me, perfectly.

She used her teeth to bite the rock on the silver gold band.

Mika:
It is real! H-how… Why would he have a wedding band here?

She questioned.

-[Sony Music Entertainment Japan (SMEJ)]-

Takeshi sat alone in his office. He organized the files of the applicants and looked over it once again. He came across Mika’s profile, paused and looked at it.

Daichi:
Mika Tanaka?

He read off the paper. Takeshi turned around and saw producer, Daichi Suzuki (42), stood behind him.

Daichi:
Is this the girl that everyone was talking about?

Takashi:
Huh?

Daichi:
I heard that she blown everyone away earlier today at the audition.

Takashi:
Yeah, she’s the one.

He smiled

Daichi:
Wow~ is that a smile on the toughest producer in the industry?

He joked.

Takeshi:
What do you mean by that?

Daichi:
Just kidding. She must be really good huh?

Takeshi looked back at Mika’s picture on the file.

Takeshi:
I think she has talent.

Daichi:
You think you can train her?

Takeshi turned and looked straight into Daichi’s eyes.

Daichi:
Positive.

He smiled.

-[Next]-

-[Yamada’s apartment]-

Yamada stepped inside of the apartment.

Yamada:
Tadaima~

He slipped off his shoe and into the comfortable slipper.

Mika:
You’re home?

He heard Mika’s voice coming from the kitchen. Yamada marched toward the kitchen. The first thing he sees is the table filled with foods and in the center is a pot of Oden. Mika stood behind the table presented the foods with a huge smile on her face.

Yamada:
Whoa! Did you just win a lottery?

Mika:
Better than that. I au-

Yamada:
Tell me later, I’m hungry.

He instantly pulled a chair and sat down.

Mika:
Oi!!

She shouted but Yamada continued to shove every foods oh the table into his mouth.

Mika:
YA!!!!

Mika grabbed Yamada’s chopsticks and pulled it away. He stopped and glared at her.

Yamada:
What?!?!

Mika:
It wouldn’t kill you to listen.

Yamada:
<sigh> What is it?

Mika:
I got accepted into SMEJ!!!

She smiled and waited for Yamada’s reaction. However, his reaction didn’t changed at all. He stared at her with his brown eyes.

Mika:
SMEJ!!!

She tried again.

Yamada:
Congrats. Can I have my chopsticks back?

Mika:
Tch.

She handed the chopsticks back to Yamada with an unhappy face. Mika settled down the chair across from him.

Mika:
Heartless bastard.

She whispered as she joined hands.

Mika:
Ittadakimasu.

She used the chopsticks to grab the Oden noodle and placed it in her mouth.

Yamada:
How did it go?

Mika looked up.

Yamada:
The audition.

Mika:
People likes me.

She smiled.

Yamada:
Because they don’t live with you so they don’t know.

Mika:
I meant my voice.

Yamada used the chopstick and grabbed the Oden noodle.

Yamada:
And?

Mika:
They accepted me right away.

Yamada
Oh. When will you go on the training process?

Mika:
Today is Thursday, right?

Yamada:
Uh.

Mika:
Next Monday.

Yamada:
Do you know who’s your trainer?

Mika:
I don’t know. I just tell me to show up at the building on Monday at 9:00 AM.

Yamada:
I’m worry.

Mika:
Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.

Yamada:
No. I’m not worry about you. I’m worry about the trainer. That person would have a tough time training you.

Mika:
What do you mean by that?

Yamada:
Since you have such a thick skull.

Mika:
Hey! How do you know that I have a thick skull?

Yamada:
Just look how big your forehead is.

Mika used her hand to conceal her forehead.

Mika:
I’ll let that slide for today since I’m so happy.

She smiled. Yamada glanced at her.

Yamada:
Today is Thursday, I don’t care how happy you are but you better clean the house.

Mika:
Don’t worry. I already did. I cleaned the living room, the kitchen, my room and your ro-

She paused. Yamada’s eyes drifted away from the bowl of rice and on Mika.

Mika:
Oh yeah!

She slammed the table with her hand. Yamada flinched back.

Mika:
I found something.

Yamada:
What is it?

Mika:
Wait here!

She immediately dashed out of the room. Yamada’s eyes followed her.

Yamada:
What now?

He mumbled. From the distant, Yamada could hear Mika’s footsteps running toward the kitchen. Mika hidden the box behind her back; covered it with her hands.

Yamada:
What is it?

He stared at Mika dumbfounded.

Mika:
This.

She revealed the baby blue box. Yamada was surprise to see the box.

Mika:
I founded this while cleaning your roo-

He snatched it away from her hand.

Mika:
Wha-

Yamada:
Who say you can go through my stuff, huh?!

He shouted.

Mika:
Yamada, you better low your voice down.

Yamada:
Who say you can tell me what to do?!?! Huh?!

He screamed.

Mika:
Ya. It’s just a box with a ring inside. Why are you making a big fuss about it?

Yamada:
What? I’m making a big fuss? You living is already a big fuss… Now, you- <scoff> you know what? Get out!

Mika:
Huh?

Yamada glared at Mika with grudge.

Yamada:
I want you get out of my house. Now!

Mika:
Why- What did I do?!

She finally raised her voice.

Yamada:
You don’t wanna leave? Alright…

He slammed the box down on the table and marched out of the kitchen as Mika followed behind. Yamada marched into Mika’s room and immediately grabbed the suitcase above the closet. He opened her closet and grabbed her clothes out of the closet and shoved it into the suitcase. Mika tried to stop him.

Mika:
Hey! What are you doing?

She grabbed her clothes and placed it back into her closet, while Yamada taken it out.

Mika:
YAA!!!!

-[Next]-

Yamada opened the front door and threw Mika’s suitcase out the apartment. Mika rushed out to be with her suitcase.

Mika:
Oi!! You’re really are too much!!!

Yamada glared at her.

Yamada:
If you don’t like then leave.

She instantly slammed the door onto her face. Mika flinched before the door could hit her.

Mika:
Oi!!! Yamada!!

She continuously pounded the door.

Mika:
Yamada!!! Yamada!!!

While Mika screaming her lung out, Yamada rested his body on the other side of the door. The noise made his eyebrows pulled closed together. He walked away from the door to escape the noise. Yamada passed the dinner table and the blue box caught his eyes. He walked toward it and held the box up close to his face.

Unknown:
Yamada-chan, I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I’m sorry…

A distant voice echoed in his head as he tried to erase it. Yamada used his bare hand crashed down the food on the dinner table. Blood dripped down from his hands and yet he couldn’t feel the pain.

-[Next]-

Mika rested her head on the window of the train. There were only a few people on the train.

<flash back>

Yamada:
Who say you can go through my stuff, huh?!

He shouted.

Mika:
Yamada, you better low your voice down.

Yamada:
Who say you can tell me what to do?!?! Huh?!

He screamed.

<flash back>

Mika:
<grunt> What the hell is his problem?

She mumbled.

-[Next]-

-[Yamada’s apartment. 1:37 AM]-

Yamada tossed and turned, trying to find a comfortable position to sleep. However, he couldn’t shut his eyes. He pulled himself up from the bed. Yamada opened Mika’s room and all he sees is the shadow of the furniture. He switched the light on and yet there wasn’t anyone there.

Yamada:
<sigh>

He shut off the light and closed the door. Yamada stopped by the kitchen and opened the refrigerator; he grabbed a bottle of beer and then walked into the living room. He grabbed the remote control and press “On”. He settled down the sofa and flipped the channel. He stopped at the late news channel. Yamada took a gulp of the cold beer.

T.V Anchor:
…Here, is where they found the body of the 19 years old Minako.

Yamada instantly spited out the beer. He used his hand to hold onto the liquid running down his chin and used another hand to grab the tissue from the box.

T. V Anchor:
According to the police, the 19 years old was sexual assaulted before being slaughtered. The man is still on the loose.

Yamada coughed.

Yamada:
What?

T. V Anchor:
The police advice the citizen to be aware and not to wander at night.

Yamada:
Oh shit!

-[Next]-

Mika strolled down the lifeless street with her suitcase behind.

Mika:
Oh~ What should I do? I don’t have anywhere to go~ Wait!

She paused.

Mika:
Ryuu!!!

-[Next]-

-[Ryuu’s residence]-

<ding dong> <ding dong> <ding dong>

She pressed the doorbell continuously. Mrs. Ono, Ryuu’s mom, opened the door.

Mika:
Sumimasen.

She bowed.

Mika:
Is Ryuu home?

Mrs. Ono:
No. He’s on a school trip to Okinawa.

Mika:
Huh?

Mrs. Ono:
What’s your business with him?

Mika:
O-oh… Nothing. It’s nothing. Sorry for interrupting you.

She bowed.

-[Next]-

-[2:26]-

Yamada’s car steadily strolled through the empty street. He looked left and right and everywhere for any sign of Mika.

Yamada:
Tch. Where is she?

He mumbled.

Yamada:
Do she wants to wander around a park and get kill?

He pushed the brake.

Yamada:
The park.

-[Next]-

Mika sat on the bench, sipping Ramune.

Mika:
I think I’m gonna go insane.

She sighed. Mika stood up and headed toward the trashcan. Suddenly, felt a tab on her shoulder. Without even looking back she grabbed the person hand and flipped him onto the ground. She realized that it wasn’t a stranger but it was Yamada. He grunted in pain as he laid down on the solid ground.

Yamada:
What the hell!!!

Mika:
Oh it’s you.

Yamada:
Aren’t you gonna help me up?

Mika:
No. You deserve it. Just lay there.

She turned around.

Yamada:
Oi!!!

Mika paused. She released a sigh and turned around. When she turned around, she saw blood dripping down from Yamada’s hand.

Mika:
<gasp> Oh God!

She covered her mouth.

Yamada:
Stop calling God. Just come here and help me up.

Mika rushed toward Yamada’s side.

Mika:
All I did was flipping you. H-how…

Yamada:
No. I’ve injured myself earlier and you just ripped it.

Mika:
Wh-what should I do?

Fear appeared on her face. Yamada looked at Mika and couldn’t help but to chuckled at her face expression.

Mika:
Why are you laughing?

Yamada:
Your expression <chuckle>

Mika glared at him.

Mika:
This is funny to you?!

She shouted.

-[Next]-

The two settled on the bench. Mika held Yamada’s hand and used the cloth bandage wrapped around Yamada’s injured hand. She slapped at Yamada’s arm.

Yamada:
What?

Mika:
Stop moving. You’re gonna stretch the wound.

Yamada became silent. He looked up the starry sky. Suddenly, he heard Mika humming.

Ooki Na Kuri No(Humming)

He recognized the song. Yamada lifted his voice.

Ooki na kuri no ki no shita de
Anata to watashi

Mika joined in.

Naka yoku asobimashou
Ooki na kuri no ki no shita de.

Once the song ended, the two looked at each other and shared the laughter.

Mika:
My mom used to sing to me whenever I couldn’t sleep or when there’s thunder.

She looked down. Suddenly, Mika felt a warm hand on her head. She raised her head up and saw Yamada.

Yamada:
Don’t worry. There won’t be thunder…not today.

He smiled. Mika’s eyes draw into his sweet smile. Her heart beats loud and clear.

Mika (voice over):
W-what? Why-why? My heart. It couldn’t stop beating. Stop!!

Yamada stood up.

Yamada:
We should go home. It’s already 3.

Mika:
U-uh.

-[Next]-

-[Yamada’s car]-

The silence conquers the atmosphere. Yamada’s attention focused on the road while Mika looked outside the window.

Mika (voice-over):
I don’t get it. How can this person be despicable, cold, selfish and yet so warm and gentle?

She turned to look at Yamada. Her eyes drowned into his eyes.

Mika (voice-over):
I’m looking at you right now and yet I couldn’t figure it out. Yamada, who are you? Is there something saddened behind those eyes of yours? Yamada… Yamada… Just for now, it is ok if… I like you?

To be continue…
