3. Episode 1

"There is only one happiness in this life; to love and be loved." - George Sand


Masaru Kobayashi. A normal guy, living his own life in a house of his just perpendicular to the Nozokizaka. A student who scores well in his exams and is in his first year of university, Masaru also takes up coding as a part-time hobby. Studying all the time is too boring. Additionally, he never had a lot of friends.


He has been living with a man named Jack Yang. Jack has been working to support Masaru, even though he's not Masaru's father. That's because Masaru and his parents had got into a car accident, and only Masaru survived. Jack took him in as a friend of his father and raised him from the age of fourteen. He studied in Toyogasaki High School and it is his last year too.


Every month, there is a special residents event in the park gathering. This even always bond residents closer to each other, but it's the not the same for Masaru. He goes there only for the food.


During the month of May, Masaru was sitting on a bench in the park. He took a plate of food, which consists of rice, vegetables, curry gravy and fried chicken drumstick. While he was eating, he took out a photo he had taken with his girlfriend, Cherry Sarikumi.


"Masaru!" A female called out. Masaru stood up and walked to the girl, accidentally dropping the picture on the floor.


"You promised me to see the fireworks today, Masaru-kun!" She said.


"The fireworks are happening here, Sarikumi-chan." Masaru shook his head and sighed, "What's so nice about fireworks?"


"Fireworks are just entertaining to me."


"What a great reason." He said sarcastically.


"Hey, I really love fireworks!"


Megumi Kato, an eighteen-year-old student, coincidentally saw the photo dropped. Just as she bent down and picked it up, Masaru was already gone. Megumi kept it in her pocket.


The next morning, Masaru prepared himself to leave for the United States. Before he closed his luggage, he took out a box of cookies that he baked for his cousin, who lives a few blocks away.


He walked into his house. Halfway through the journey, he heard a deep, loud voice coming from a house. He went to the house's doorstep and knocked on her door, but no one answered. He opened the door and slowly walked up to the second floor. He saw Megumi in her room, tied up and gagged in her white summer dress. She tried kicking her pink heel shoes at another person.


"Aww, showing affection?" The guy laughed, "This is getting really interesting."


He moves his hand gently across her legs while touching her thigh-high socks and legs. Megumi muffled in fear.


"This guy's a pervert for sure." He opened the door.


"How dare you try to rape a girl!" He screamed.


"What are you going to do about it?"


"I've called the police. They're already down there."


The guy looked down and saw police at the doorsteps. The guy quickly ran out of the room and ran off through the back door on the first floor.


Masaru ran to Megumi and untied her. She took off her gag.


"Thanks for saving me." Megumi smiled.


"What happened?"


"I accidentally didn't lock my door. As I was about to go out, the pervert came in and tied me up."


"Remember to lock next time. That perverted Dreyar never learns his lesson. Like a leopard never changes its spots." Masaru said, "Anyway, I brought you homemade cookies." He passed the box of cookies to her.


"Thank you." She took a cookie from the box, "Mmm, it's delicious."


"Thank you." Masaru smiled.


"Oh yeah, this." Megumi passed the picture of Masaru and Cherry to him.


"I've dropped the picture." Masaru thought, "No wonder I can't find it."


"I saw the picture dropping, so I decided to pick it up and find you." Megumi said, "Too bad you disappeared. But now you're here again."


Megumi then looked at the time.


"Oh no! I'm going to be late!"


"Go ahead then. I'll get out of here too."


"Anyway, thanks for saving me just now." Megumi smiled, "I'll find a way to repay you."


"Oh, it's okay. It's what I should do when I see people needing help."


Megumi and Masaru went out of the house.


"So I guess I'll see you again soon?" Megumi asked.


"Yes. We will, hopefully."

Episode 1


10 years later, a twenty-eight-year-old Megumi Kato woke up from the bed. She turned and saw her boyfriend, Tomoya Aki sleeping soundly.


She gently kissed his forehead and then got out of bed. After washing her face and brushing her teeth, she went to the kitchen to cook breakfast.


She swiftly cracked open two eggs and placed them in a bowl. She then took out flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter, vegetable oil and maple syrup.


She poured the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl before whisking it. She poured the milk, eggs, and oil into another bowl. She then mixes the two bowls' ingredients.


She turned on the stove and placed a pan on it. She carefully poured a small amount of oil onto the bottom of the pan.


She poured one-third of the batter onto the pan. She used her spatula to spread the batter across the pan. She then flipped it.


Tomoya Aki woke up from his sleep. He went to the toilet and rinsed his face with water. He then went to the kitchen and saw Kato placing 2 pancakes on a plate each. She then poured maple syrup on the pancakes.


"Morning, Megumi." Aki greeted.


"Morning, Tomoya-kun." Kato smiled at him, "Try my pancakes. See if they're tasty."


"I'll be the judge then." Tomoya took a spoon and cut part of the pancake. He placed it into his mouth and chewed on it.


"How's it?"


"They're pretty nice, I got to say."


"Thank you."


"Megumi, we are actually kinda late." Tomoya said, "It's because of what we did yesterday."


"Oh, come on. We just stayed up playing games with interactive choices. Nothing wrong with that. Besides, aren't we working on those type of games?"


"Yea, we are." Tomoya replied, "To be honest, Haikono: Sensei, the game we played yesterday, was awesome. Every choice you make impacts the future very differently and the different outcomes surprise me a lot."


"That's why it sold one million copies in the first two weeks."


"Ah, wish we could find him and ask him how to create such a good game."


"Okay, let's stop talking and start eating, shall we?"


Tomoya nodded as they both tucked in.


After they are done, Megumi washed the plates and they went to bathe. Tomoya started up the car as she got into it.


"Let's go." Megumi said.


"Not without doing this." Tomoya kissed her cheeks.


"You've been doing that every morning, Tomoya-kun. We've done it at home many times."


"This just goes to show how much I love a pretty woman like you."


"Such a sweet tongue." Megumi then pulled Tomoya into a kiss, their lips touching each other. They did it for three seconds.


"Feels good." Tomoya smiled at Megumi.


"Same here." She smiled back at him, "Now, let's get to work."


In the city of Tokyo, it was bustling with lots of people. They are either rushing to the subway or taxis for work, rushing to the supermarket to buy their own daily necessities or rushing to school.


In the middle of the city stood a small office building. It is the building of Blessing Software, a game company Tomoya owns. He drove into the basement carpark before the two got out of the car to the lift.


"I love how cute you are now." Tomoya said in the lift, "Because I know you're going to turn into a ferocious tiger later."


"Glad you know that." Megumi smiled, "So enjoy my cuteness for now, Tomoya-kun."


They got out of the lift once it reached the seventh floor. Once Megumi's heels stepped into the office, her face immediately changed. She turned stern and started ordering people around.


"Stop fooling around, Michiru!" She said to a purple-haired woman who playing her guitar.


"Aye, madam!" She quickly took out music sheets and started scribbling music notes on it.


Megumi walked throughout the office. It contains one big living room, with 5 rooms and a kitchen. As she was investigating the rooms, Tomoya walked to Michiru.


"She's getting the hang of acting big, isn't it, Tomoya-kun?" Michiru groaned.


"Megumi may be fierce, but she has the company interests at heart. Besides, she's only like that during work."


"I don't see Iori and Izumi anywhere!" Megumi screamed, "Where the hell are they?"


"Gone." Michiru said sarcastically, "They disappeared with a poof."


"Are you done with your sheet then?" Megumi asked.






Michiru took a pencil and continued to scribble on the sheet.


"Tomoya-kun, please get to work." Megumi said. Tomoya nodded, "Understood, Megumi-boss. What about the Hashima siblings?"


"I'll contact them and see if they are late or something."


"No need to contact." Michiru said, "They've told me early in the morning that their parents have got into a car accident in Canada. They're quitting their jobs to take care of their paralyzed parents."


"Did I ask you?" Megumi glared at her, "I remembered I did not ask for your opinions."


"It's just me telling you." Michiru sighed, "Why are you acting like some bossy girl? Besides, you can't call them. They're in the plane now."


"So what now?" Tomoya asked.


"I think I only have one solution." Megumi said.


Eriri Spencer Sawamura and Utaha Kasumigaoka met up with Megumi during lunch.


"I wonder what's so important you got to call me out." Utaha said with an elegant voice. A tall purple-haired woman, she is a mature person who went on to succeed in her writing career.


"C'mon, Utaha, it's a damn girls' meeting." Eriri growled, "It's our girls' meeting." Eriri has long pigtails and is small, but not as small as Megumi.


"I still have to attend my family gathering, mind you."


"Eriri, Utaha-senpai," Megumi asked gently, "Would you mind to rejoin Blessing Software for the moment?"


"Rejoin Blessing Software, you say?" Eriri asked.


"Well, I thought you have enough members." Utaha commented.


"Two of our members quitted the group." Megumi sighed, "Iori and Izumi went overseas to take care of their paralyzed parents."


"Then find some other people". Eriri said, "I'm sure you'll be able to find some other people to help."


"But you are the only two who I know could help us because you're experienced in drawing and writing scenes for the game."


"How will you convince us to join then?" Utaha asked, "I'll join if Eriri says yes. Although, do note we're still in Akane's company."


"Please, Eriri." Megumi begged, "Please, Utaha-senpai"


"Is that all you can do to convince us?" Utaha shook her head in disappointment while tapping her heels on the floor


"Let's not talk about it anymore, okay?" Eriri asked kindly.


"No, we must." Megumi kneeled down and looked at them with puppy eyes. Eriri and Utaha gasped.


"Please?" Megumi begged, "We don't have enough people anymore. We are only a three-person team. Plus you two are experts. I promise once you're done with our latest game, you can leave. We can't just leave a project hanging.


"I know I'm not on good terms with you, Utaha-senpai, but please help me. I promise I won't get into a fight with you again."


"How can we say no now?" Eriri pulled Megumi up, "You with your puppy eyes and kneeling down."


Utaha sighed, "Fine, we'll join Blessing Software again just for the time being until you finish your project. Just because Tomoya-kun is our friend."


"Thank you, Eriri and Utaha-senpai." Megumi hugged Eriri. Eriri smiled while Utaha shook her head.


A guy with black spiky hair was in an office when he got a call.


"Mr Leo, can you arrange an appointment for me?" The caller asked, "I need a change. My nose looks like shit."


"I'll gladly be of service." Leo snickered, "You just want your ex back, don't you?"


"Anything to get him back. Any amount you want. Just do it."


"Guess I won't be saying no to you then."
