A.N: Kinda short. Mostly rushed. Complete fail.
Chinen shifted from one foot to to the other repeatedly, not being able to keep still.
“You seem jumpy.”
“Inoo! I told you to-” Chinen spun around, face to face with a young boy with a playful smirk on his face.
“Inoo? And who might this be?” The boy asked innocently.
“A-ah! Ni-ninimya-san!” Chinen spluttered.
Nino chuckled softly. “You can't even say my name right, silly. And didn't I tell you to call me Nino?”
“Ni-nino-san! Uh, why are here?”
“One of my many part time jobs you can say. You here on a date?”
“Yes, I mean na-no! I'm mean sort of, kind of, in a way. I guess it's a date but not really and well uuuuh.” Chinen blushed furiously, “Why-why do you ask?”
“Because you called me Inoo.”
“Oh, um, no I'm not dating Inoo. Wait! I mean I'm not dating anyone! Absolutely nobody!” Chinen flabbergasted.
“Hm, okay then. I've got to get going, see ya.” Nino winked and left the other still red in the face, staring after him hopelessly.
“Chinen! Sorry to keep you waiting!” Yamada rushed to Chinen's side. “Eh? Your face is so red. Did something happen.”
“No!” Chinen answered a little too quickly.
Yamada gave Chinen a suspicious look but let it go.
“Here, thanks for waiting. Hee hee, I can't believe I forgot to bring the tickets.”
“Uh, Yamada-kun? Why is it in a box?”
Yamada blushed slightly.
“Open it and see.”
Chinen lifted the top off and discovered not only the ticket, but a red, heart shaped necklace.
“I saw it in a store when I was running back to my house to get the tickets. I couldn't help but to think that it fit you perfectly, Chinen. I just had to get it.” Yamada mumbled softly.
Chinen smiled widely at him.
“Thank you Yama-chan, I love it.”
“Ya-yama-chan?” Yamada asked.
“Oh-um, I mean...”
“No,” Yamada grabbed Chinen hand. “It's okay, I like it. Let's go watch the play.”
As Yamada pulled Chinen along and Chinen obediently followed, Chinen placed his hand over his heart.
Why is it beating so fast?
- - - - -
“Nino-san?!” Chinen gasped.
Yamada answered Chinen with a snore. He had fallen asleep somewhere during the beginning of the play. Chinen was too busy admiring the sleeping Yamada to pay much attention to anything else but his attention reverted back on the play when he heard a very familiar voice.
“What the hell? I'm a BOY?! I was just a girl a minute ago!” Nino hollered.
“We granted your wish, darling.” said the girl in white on the right.
“Now you have a second chance at life.” said the other on the left.
“But this wasn't what I had in mind. Ahhh? What should I do?”
“I suggest you first get a girlfriend and-OW!”
“Tsk, ignore her.”
Chinen couldn't help stare at Nino. He was such a brilliant actor. He didn't realize at first but this play was something he could really relate to. The events were exactly like how his life had played out.
“I don't want this! I don't want to be a boy! This is too hard!” Nino whined.
“Kenji, you can't just try to get away every time when things are turning hard.” Akane, one of the guardian angels scolded Nino.
“But I'm falling for OTHER girls. And at the same time, I'm liking BOYS!”
“So? Be a bisexual.”
“But that's not the problem. I don't even know who I am anymore! Am I Kenji? Or am I Kimiko? Aaah! I don't know!”
“Kenji? Are you alright?” Ikuta, one of the boys Kimiko/Kenji likes, approached Nino.
“Oh, I'm fine! Don't worry!” Nino laughed uneasily.
“You know, you're different. From the other guys. I don't know why. I can't understand it. It's almost as if you're not a boy at all.”
“What? You're making no sense, Ikuta-san.”
Chinen was on the edge of his seat. He couldn't believe that Ikuta was there. Sometimes Kimiko failed to notice that Kazune was crushing on her. It made Chinen so sad to see Kazune get hurt... And she was hurting him again because Kazune was around the corner, eavesdropping on the two talking.
“Kenji...I don't know why, but I'm attracted to you. I suppose you can call me gay. You probably think I'm disgusting. But...”
Before Nino could react, Ikuta kissed hm right on the lips. Chinen was paying more attention to Kazune, who suddenly got a hurt look on his face and disappeared. Chinen , wondering why, turned his attention back to Nino and discovered the scene.
The curtains were drawn and reopened again. Instead of Nino standing there, the girl who was suppose to be Kimiko was there.
“Kimiko, I love you.” Ikuta hugged her tight.
“Kimiko? I'm not Kimiko! I'm Kenji!”
Ikuta laughed, “You're so strange today.”
“Eh?” Kimiko looked at a nearby mirror (that I just randomly put in XD). “Oh my gosh! I AM a girl! Ikuta!!!! I can love you now without worrying about who I am!”
“Ha ha, I don't know what's wrong with you lately, but you're seriously weird.” Ikuta laughed.
The curtains closed again and the entire cast appeared. They bowed and everyone applauded. The loud clapping woke Yamada up.
“Uwa!” Yamada bolted straight up. “What's going on?”
“Oh, Yama-chan, you woke up.” Chinen smiled.
“Eh? I fell asleep? Oh, I'm sorry Chinen. This was suppose to be be fun.” Yamada looked away, embarrassed.
“It still can be. Come one, let's go.” Chinen hooked his arm around Yamada's and left.
Chinen needed to get away from there. For some reason, when he saw Ikuta kiss Kenji/Nino, his throat tightened and he felt a pang hit him in his chest. The last person he wanted to see right now was Nino. He didn't know what would happen if he saw him.
“Yama-chan, I- eh? Yama-chan? Where did you go?” Chinen looked around, discovering that Yamada was no longer there.
Chinen figured that it was best if he waited outside. If Yamada was swept away in the crowd, he was bound to come out sooner or later. So Chinen waited and waited, but there was no sign of Yamada even when almost everyone had left.
“Yama-chan?” Chinen looked up hopefully, but discovered it was the one peson he didn't want to see, Nino.
“Oh, so he's your date, huh?” Nino grinned.
Chinen looked back down, his heart rate sped up rapidly.
“Un.” Chinen nodded, no longer trying to hide the fact from Nino.
Chinen hastily grabbed his phone.
“Chinen? There's this girl, Naoko I think. You know, the one who gave us the tickets. She told me she gave them to us by accident because she meant to go with her friends. She asked for me to go watch another play with her...It sounds pretty weird to me but she is the one who gave them to us so it's the least I could do right?”
“Yamada-kun!!! Hurry! It's starting!”
“Uh, I have to go. Sorry, Chinen. We'll hang out some other time, okay?”
“Oh, bye.” Chinen said cheerfully but once he hung up, his smiled dropped from his face.
“You just fell asleep during the play...” Chinen frowned to himself.
“Chinen? This Yama-chan person stood you up? Geez, doesn't he know that's not the right thing to do to a girl.
Only I'm not a real girl.
“Mmh, oh well. Yama-chan is popular. A lot of girls like him. I suppose it was suspected something like this would happen.”
“The day doesn't have to end like this. I know someone that you'll like, I promise. Come on.”
Nino extended his hand to Chinen. Chinen hesitated. Nino rolled his eyes and just grabbed his arm.
“Would you just trust me? I'm not going to claw your eyes out or something. Arhg! Come ON!”
Nino grabbed Chinen 's hand and dragged him along. Chinen followed without resistance.
“Heeeey! Get your butt out here!” Nino banged his fist on a pale yellow door.
A head poked out.
“Ah, so I take it you know each other.” Nino nodded, pretending that he didn't know anything.
“How do you know him?”
“How do you know her?”
Chinen and Ryutaro pointed to each other. Realizing they both asked the same thing simultaneously, they hide their head in embarrassment.
“I met Ryutaro when I was buying some new DS games. We reached for the same game at the same time. It happened to be the last copy too. I wasn't going to let some brat take it.”
“Hey!” Ryutaro retorted.
Nino ignored him and continued. “So I grabbed it, but I guess he was thinking the same thing because he tried to bribe me with twice the money the game was worth. I thought he was pretty dedicated so told him I let him borrow the game once I finished it. That's sort of how we met.”
“And till this day, Ninomiya-san still hasn't given me the game yet.” Ryutaro said meekly.
“Hey, I said I'll give it to you when I finish. I'm not done with it yet!” Nino huffed.
“It's been nearly two months!”
“So? Maybe I want to savor the goodness of the game! You're not going to win this fight, Ryutaro! You can try, but YOU WILL NOT WIN! I'll be taking my leave now~”
Before Nino left, he turned and winked at Chinen.
“He likes you, Chinen. He always would talk to me about this cute girl, but he thought he would never have a chance with you because of this guy named Yamada. I knew it was you.”
“Sta-stop making up stories and just leave!” Ryutaro scoffed.
“Now, now, that's no way to talk to your senpai, is it?” Nino stuck his tongue out and finally left.
“So-so, I guess you should come in?” Ryutaro opened the door a little wider.
“Um, I guess?” Chinen answered hesitantly.

First of all, I'm so sorry for taking forever to update! School is killer... and I'm sad to say I'm no longer interested in HSJ. *hides behind a chair* Don't kill me HSJ lovers!!! ;A; My addiction for them has been slowly slipping away ever since school started. . And now I'm pretty much Arashi-biased and I'm started to get into Kpop too. *still hiding*
And...I seriously can't write something that I don't like anymore. . But, I want to finish this. It doesn't feel right if I discontinue it. But be warned...rushed chapters, bad plot, Arashi members XD *shot*, and well probably lots more things.
It is understood if you hate me. *hides in a boom shelter and tries to avoid angry fans*
Yeah.. . Not much of a Yamachii date either... Sorry to those who were looking forward to it. (I think I just got more hated) I made Yamada such a bad guy .
And...NINO TO THE RESCUE!!! (again) Nino is doing a better job than Chinen's true guardian angels. But now there's the Chiitaro date :D (I know that still doesn't make up for anything but I tried?)
As for the prize for the correct of who the three main boys are...I changed my mind . (cough I suck, I know cough) but that's probably because I'm rushing it... BUT!(To the person who guessed it correctly) You will still get your prize, if you want it. (Though I have never come up with a prize...) Just request something? I'll make it for you. After all, it's the least I can do...
Ahahaha... I'm so totally lame...:X
So much bad news at once. You must despise me right now...
So look forward to the next chapter if you want...(ahh I feel horrible)
~Emi who is sad and is most likely being hated .
