"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." - Laura Ingalls Wilder

For dinner, Masaru and Utaha bought the Japanese curry cutlet rice and ate it at his home.

"You gave me a surprise just now, you know that?" Utaha asked.

"C'mon, at least I confessed." Masaru laughed.

"Since we're boyfriend and girlfriend, I feel the need to tell you something."

"Go ahead."

"Do you know why I had that outing at the park with you?"

"You wanted to spend time with me?"

"That's one-third of the reason."

"Umm, let me see..." Masaru started thinking, "Oh, I remember we're still doing the storyline there, so that's another one-third."

She nodded in agreement.

"What's the last one-third?"

"You know, you shouldn't speak about stealing money from our company." Utaha cheekily said, "You actually thought I was sleeping when I was in the hospital, didn't you?" Masaru immediately got in his knees and bowed down continuously.

"I'm sorry I had that plan!" He apologized, "I beg for your forgiveness!"

"I trust you won't think of it again, wouldn't you?"

"I will never, ever think about it ever again!"

"Then it's all good." She smiled, "Let's tuck in, or not the food will get cold."

The Dream Designers

Episode 12

"Cheers!" Tomoya clanked their wine glasses with Eriri, Michiru, and her other three band members. Megumi just sat beside him, staring at the glasses but not drinking the wine in it. The seven of them were in the nightclub, celebrating the success of their newest game.

"Megumi, why aren't you drinking?" Eriri asked.

"Oh, it's because I don't drink." She answered, "I don't like it."

"I see." Eriri nodded her head, then continued drinking. A few minutes, only Tomoya and Megumi were not drunk. The rest were.

"Looks like they can't take too much liquor." Megumi said.

"I guess so, but I'm feeling a little drunk now." He slowly got up, "I'm going to the gents."

"Don't be gone too long." She said. He nodded and went off. As he was walking, he started feeling kind of drowsy. He walked in a zig-zag manner to the toilet.

After washing his face, he walked out of the toilet, rubbing his face with his hands. He was still feeling a bit drunk. He then bumped onto someone.

"Hey!" The guy pulled Tomoya back, "Watch where you're walking!"

"I'm sorry, mister." Tomoya said, "I didn't mean to."

"I don't really care if you did it on purpose or not." The guy held up his fist, "I'm going to punch you so hard it'll make you sober."

As the guy was about to punch Tomoya, a girl's voice could be heard, "Aaron-san, would you cool down for a while?"

Tomoya turned to look at the girl. She was a woman in her twenties, wearing a short shirt and pants. Her hair was in a ponytail, and her face looks smooth with no pimples and perfect skin.

"Ariana-chan!" He dropped Tomoya on the floor and skipped happily towards her. She placed her arms around him and sat down with him on a table.

"Aaron-san," Ariana asked in a seductive voice, "Why are you acting violently towards this guy although he bumped onto you accidentally?"

"He was pissing me off." Aaron whined, "I hate people who don't look where they're going."

"But he apologized. So forgive him, okay?"

The pub manager then saw Ariana and went to her.

"Ariana, Benson and Carl are waiting for you." She said. Ariana nodded and got up.

"Remember, if people apologize after bumping onto you, let them go. Understand, Aaron-san?"

"Yes, Ariana-chan!" He obediently nodded his head.

"Thanks for saving my life." Tomoya thanked Ariana when they were a few meters away, "I do not know what would happen if you weren't there."

"Don't mention it." Ariana stuck out her hand, "Ariana Jones. I work here."

"Tomoya Aki." He shook her hand.

"You can come here if you're feeling down." Ariana said, "I'll personally entertain you. Hundred percent of my guests are satisfied with my service."

"You sound like you have lots of customers."

"That's right. I do."

"I'll be waiting for that day where you get to entertain me."

"Me too. I can't wait to entertain you."

Megumi walked past and saw them talking.

"Tomoya." She patted his shoulder, "Eriri and friends need someone to fetch them home. We need to start driving."

"Right." Tomoya nodded, "I'll see you next time."

Tomoya and Megumi then walked off.

"Who's that woman?" Megumi asked.

"Ariana-chan. She works here."


Megumi called Masaru to help her fetch her friends back to their homes. Tomoya fetches Michiru and her band members while Masaru fetches Eriri and Megumi to their homes.

In Tomoya's car, Michiru starting singing random lyrics and laughing at the same time. The other band members also started murmuring weird words.

Tomoya gripped his steering wheel with both hands. Michiru then held his right wrist and pulled it.

"Tomoya, I love you!" She screamed drunkenly.

"Michiru!" He shook her hand off and continued driving. The band then started making louder noises than before. Tomoya growled, "Why am I supposed to fetch these group of monkeys instead of Eriri?"

Meanwhile, in Masaru's car, he brought Eriri back to her home at first.

"Wait here, Megumi." He told Megumi. She nodded. He then carried Eriri into her house. He slowly and gently laid her on her bed in her room. He took a blanket and covered her body.

A few minutes later, Masaru brought Megumi to her house.

"Thanks for helping us, Masaru-san." She expressed her gratitude to him.

"No problem." He replied, "You should check on Tomoya if he's having any problems. I'll be leaving if there's nothing else."

"Yeah. Good night, Masaru-kun."

"Good night, Megumi." He then got back into his car and drove off. She walked into the house and saw Tomoya sleeping on the sofa.

"He must have been tired from bringing four girls home." Megumi took out his blanket and covered his body.

She then kissed his forehead, "Sweet dreams, Tomoya-kun."

The next morning, Tomoya gathered the team members of Blessing Software in the main office room.

"Guys, I have a new member to introduce." Tomoya pointed to a girl beside him, "This is Charmaine Daisu. She is our accountant. She keeps our finances and our financial accounts. Please welcome her."

The team clapped for her as she bowed.

"Hello, everyone." She greeted, "I do hope I could work together with everyone here."

"I'm Eriri Spencer Sawamura, the illustrator." Eriri introduced herself first.

"I'm Utaha Kasumigaoka, the scenario writer." Utaha did it next.

"I'm Michiru Hyodo, the musician." Michiru followed.

"I'm Masaru Kobayashi, coder, and assistant scenario writer." Masaru uttered.

"I'm Megumi Kato, main heroine, and assistant director." Megumi said next.

"And I'm Tomoya Aki, director of the company." Tomoya introduced himself last.

"Nice to meet you all." Charmaine smiled.

A few minutes, everyone got to work for their new game. Eriri wanted to find Utaha so that she could discuss the storyline with her. It would certainly allow her to understand it and know what to draw.

However, when Eriri went to Utaha's office, she was not there. When Eriri walked passed Masaru's office, she saw him with Utaha, holding hands as they stare at a computer screen. They were watching a show together.

"...I can't believe Kelly had this problem and she didn't tell people." Masaru said.

"And to think Charles didn't even ask her." Utaha shook her head, "What a dumb protagonist."

"Ahem." Eriri cleared her throat loudly. The two of them turned around and saw her.

"Why are you two holding hands?" Eriri asked, "It's not like you two are boyfriend and girlfriend."

"We are." Utaha said, "Masaru-san confessed his love to me yesterday."

"CONFESSED HIS LOVE?" Eriri laughed, "You sure it's genuine?"

"Hello, can you not doubt my love for her?" Masaru asked, annoyed, "I truly love her with all my heart. And that's that."

"Whatever." Eriri then looked at Utaha, "When can I talk to you?"

"About half an hour later." Utaha replied.

"Okay, then I'll see you later." Eriri got out of the room.

"Is she jealous or something?" Utaha asked.

"Let her be if she wants to." Masaru replied, "I can't be bothered with her."

During lunch break, Tomoya, Utaha, and Eriri went to visit Akane in the cemetery. Tomoya placed flowers in front of her grave.

"I've came here to visit you, Akane." Tomoya muttered, "I hope you can rest in peace."

"If it isn't Blessing Software." Kane Harune was meters behind them. The trio turned back and saw him.

"Karuto Hishi." Utaha greeted.

"It's good to see you, Ms. Scenario Writer." Kane then turned to Tomoya and Eriri, "You guys too, Mr. Director and Ms. Hentai Artist."

"You asshole." Eriri growled.

"Here to give flowers to my dead friend?" Kane asked.

"That's right." Tomoya said, "You doing the same?"

Kane nodded.

"Tomoya, I want to to talk to you for a while." He said, "Privately."

"You can't just say you want to talk..." Eriri was saying when Tomoya signaled for her to stop.

"Fine." Tomoya walked away from the two girls with Kane. Once they are far away, Kane took out an envelope.

"This is what I've seen just a few days ago." Kane said. Tomoya opened the envelope and saw a few photos.

He took them out and looked at them with shock.

"Lots of shock, isn't it?" Kane asked, "It's even in the news."

" t...this t...t...true?" Tomoya asked with watery eyes.

"Yes." Kane said, "If there's nothing else, you should just look at the photos and news." He then walked away. Tomoya leaned against a tree and started sobbing.

After work, Megumi tried to find Tomoya, but he could not find him. She tried calling him, but he did not pick up. She went to Eriri and Utaha in the latter's office.

"You could not find Tomoya?" Eriri asked.

"He just disappeared after work." Megumi said worriedly, "I want to know where he had gone to. I don't know why he's so sad today."

"Well, while Eriri and I on our way back," Utaha added, "we realized Morals-kun is especially quiet."

"Try to call him then." Masaru stood by the door of Utaha's office.

"He can't be reached." Megumi sighed.

"I guessed that can't be helped then."

"Can't you say something positive, mister?" Eriri asked angrily.

"I'm just giving honest opinions, Sawamura-san." Masaru said, "Have you ever heard of the phrase 'Honesty is the best policy'?"

"Being too straightforward is what makes you a jerk!"

"Being a person who beats around the damn bush made you a hesitant woman."

"Masaru Kobayashi!" Eriri screamed.

"That's enough, you two." Megumi said, "I'll try to find him. Thanks for the help, anyways." She then walked off.

In Kane's office, someone called his phone. He answered the call.

"I've already done what you've wanted me to do." He said, "It all comes down to that woman to make it successful."

"Okay. I'll be waiting." The caller said.

In the nightclub, Tomoya ordered red wine to drink. As he is drinking, Ariana sat beside him.

"What a small world, Tomoya-san!" She patted his shoulder, "How are you feeling?"


She placed her arm around his neck, "And what thing could've made this handsome lad a lifeless soul?"

"My parents got killed in a car crash. They are like my supporters. Whatever I do, they support me. They gave me the strength to chase a girl. Every time I have a problem, they would be there to help me solve it. And they love me very much. Now that they're gone, I've two fewer people loving me, supporting me, nagging at me."

"It's okay, Tomoya-san." Ariana hugged him, "I understand you. Shall I give you entertainment today to cheer you up?"

"No, thanks."

"Aww, come on, Tomoya-san. It really will cheer you up. I guarantee you. If it does not, I will quit my job."

"You're serious about it."

"Of course I am. So, just let me entertain you."

"Fine." Tomoya stood up and followed Ariana to a room.

Masaru and George went to the nightclub to drink too.

"Today's the day my pay has increased by forty percent!" George screamed happily.

"That's a lot of profit." Masaru commented, "Anyway, any interesting gossip to share?"

"I heard that a woman from a Canada nightclub had came here to work. Although it only had been a week, everyone had loved her already. Not only is she sexy, she's so friendly and amicable."

"Do you know this woman then?" Masaru asked.

"I heard it's Ariana." George said, "I heard she also looks like the singer Ariana Grande."

The two of them walked into the hallways of rooms, where they saw Ariana walking past them. She turned around and waved at them, smiling. They waved back.

"See, I told you. She's friendly." George said.

"Well, she's kind of." Masaru walked forward to see Ariana enter the room. As he looked closely, he saw Tomoya in the room.

"What the hell?" He rubbed his eyes to make sure his eyes weren't playing tricks on him. He looked into the room through the small and long window on the door. He indeed saw Tomoya.

"Tomoya is with Ariana?" He muttered to himself. Masaru continued staring until George snapped his fingers in front of Masaru's face.

"C'mon, Masaru." George said, "Let's get home. It's kind of late already."

Masaru took one last look and saw Ariana sitting down on Tomoya's lap. She then looked at Tomoya, legs spread open.

Before Masaru could see what Ariana would do next, George pulled him away.
