A flight attendant approached the seat near by the window, interrupted while a passenger watched the news on the small screen T.V.

Flight Attendant:
Would you like something to drink before we land?

A man in a plain white T-shirt turned around.

Ken:
Yes, I’d like a hot coffee, please.

He smiled.

Flight Attendant:
Please wait while I get it.

She bowed and smiled.

Ken:
Wait!

She paused.

Ken:
You’re using Honeysuckle Belle lotion from Victoria’s, correct?

Flight Attendant:
H-How?

Ken:
I like it.

He smiled.

Overhead:
The flight from Los Angles at 4:15 PM had just arrived…

Ken(25) strolled out of the gate with his luggage behind. The familiar flight attendant approached him.

Flight Attendant:
Are you mix? You look like mix…

Ken:
Yeah, my mom is Japanese and my dad is Italian-French.

Flight Attendant:
Do you need hel-

Ken:
I’m sorry… Are you flirting with me?

The flight attendant blushed and smiled.

Ken:
Then you should forget about it, huh? I don’t date annoying type.

Flight Attendant:
What?

Ken:
Your breasts…

She looked down.

Ken:
Isn’t it a little too big compare to your body? Where did you get it done?

Flight Attendant:
Hey!

Ken:
Don’t make a scene here. What will people think if they see a flight attendant shouting at a passenger, huh?

He smirked as he grabbed his sunglasses out from his bag. Ken marched away from her while she looked at him with rage in her eyes. He paused and turned around.

Ken:
By the way… You should cover that hickey on you neck.

He smirked. The flight attendant quickly covered her neck with her scarf.

All:
Kanpai!!!

Everyone joined their glasses. Mariko approached Mika.

Mariko:
Mika.

Mika:
Huh?

She turned and looked at her.

Mariko:
I’d like to thanks again for the job.

Mika:
It’s nothing. I really like the way you style people… so I think I picked the right person.

Mariko:
Thank you.

She blushed.

Mika:
Did Ryuu agreed?

Mariko:
He agreed everything I agreed.

Mika chuckled. Yamada approached Mika.

Yamada:
Congrats!

Mika turned around.

Mika:
Thanks.

Mariko:
I’ll leave you two alone.

She departed from the couple and joined Ryuu and the staffs.

Mika:
I thought you couldn’t make it.

Yamada:
Why would I miss my girl’s important day?

He wrapped his hand around her waist.

Mika:
Would your staffs be mad that you’re not at the party?

Yamada:
No. I don’t think so.

Mika chuckled. Yamada leaned toward her lips.

Ken:
What an interesting scene here?

Mika turned around and saw Ken stood in front of her.

Mika:
Ken?

Yamada released her. Ken approached Mika.

Mika:
What are you doing here?

Ken:
I’m here to check up on my girl Congratulation.

He leaned forward and hugged her tightly in front of Yamada. Ken glared at Yamada. Yamada formed a fist.

Mika:
Thank you. I thought you’d be here in another month.

Ken:
Yeah… But I miss you too much.

Mika:
Ok, enough with the sweet talk.

Takeshi walked toward the three.

Takeshi:
Hey! You supposed to call me when you landed.

Ken:
Sorry, uncle. I must’ve forgot

Takeshi:
You rascal, I was worried.

He messed Ken’s hair. Ken glared at Yamada and smirked.

-[Yamada’s car]-

Yamada:
Who was that?

Mika:
Who? You mean Ken? He’s Takeshi’s nephew.

Yamada:
You two seem close…

Mika:
Oh, we lived together when I was abroad.

He immediately hit the brake. The force pulled Mika forward and pushed her back.

Mika:
What was that?

Yamada turned and faced her.

Yamada:
You guys live together?!?!

He shouted.

Mika:
Yeah… In the same building!

Yamada:
Building?

Mika:
Yeah, like an apartment?

Yamada:
Oh.

The two turned around and saw a pack of cars stuck behind them.

Mika:
We should move before we get caught.

Yamada’s car pulled over in front of Mika’s apartment.

Mika:
Thanks for the ride.

She smiled as she unbuckled her seatbelt.

Yamada:
Mika.

She lifted her head up. Her lips and Yamada’s lips are about an inch apart. He looked deeply into her eyes and leaned forward. Suddenly, they heard a tab on the window. Mika turned around and saw Ken stood outside of the car. She rolled down the window.

Ken:
So this is your boyfriend, huh?

Mika:
Uh.

His eyes flicked toward Yamada.

Ken:
I see.

Mika:
Oh! How rude of me? I forgot Yamada, this is Ken and Ken, this is Yamada.

Ken:
Nice to meet you.

Yamada:
Same here.

His tone sounded dry.

Mika:
What are you doing here?

Ken:
Well, apparently I live here now.

Yamada (voice over):
What?!?!

Mika:
Really?

Ken:
Uh. I guess we’ll be neighbor again, huh?

Mika:
Uh…

She smiled.

Yamada (voice over):
I have a bad feeling about this.

She looked out of the glass window.

Ken:
How was the tour?

Mika:
It was really fun. I’ve never seen so many people at one place before.

Mika stepped into the kitchen. Ken followed her.

Ken:
It’s a concert. Of course there’d be a lot of people.

Mika:
How about you? How was modeling?

She opened a cabinet and grabbed a glass. While Ken lean against the wall, watching Mika.

Ken:
It’s ok.

Mika:
I bet there’s a lot of girl tryna hit on you, huh?

Ken:
How do you know?

Mika:
I’m physic.

Ken:
There’s a lot of girl follows me but none catch my eyes.

Mika:
Ken, you’re not getting any younger so stop being picky and pick a girl.

She poured ice-cold water into the glass.

Ken:
But I already have someone in mind.

Mika:
Who? Is she a model too?

Ken:
You know I don’t like to date model.

Mika:
Ah! Is it that stylist-

Ken:
No.

He marched toward Mika and grabbed a glass of water out of her hand.

Mika:
Hey!

He took a sip.

Ken:
If you want it and take it.

He held the glass up high. Mika tip toe to, trying hard to grab the glass of water.

Ken:
You are very short, you know that?

Mika jumped up.

Ken:
Hey! That’s cheating.

He moved the glass in the different direction and Mika trying to catch it. Mika accidentally swing her hand and the water flown out of the glass and spilt over Ken’s shirt.

Mika:

She looked at Ken.

Ken:
Opps?

Mika laughed.

She shouted from another room.
