7. Episode 5

"Life is full of happiness and tears; be strong and have faith." - Kareena Kapoor Khan

 

As Masaru got off early after work, he went straight to his room and wore his casual clothes. He went to the restaurant and waited for Utaha to arrive.

 

He then saw a girl's shadow approaching him. She sat down on the chair as he looked down on his phone.

 

"Have you ordered anything, Masaru-kun?" The girl asked.

 

"Oh, I have..." He looked up, only to see Cherry Sarikumi, "What the fuck are you doing here?"

 

"I miss you, Kobayashi." Cherry held his left hand.

 

"Don't touch me." Masaru quickly shook her hand off.

 

"Aww, don't be like that, my Masaru-san." Cherry said in a seducing voice, holding his wrist this time, "I'm going to make sure I'm going to love you this time."

 

"What's that? A stupid fabrication of yours? Where's your baller boyfriend? That motherfucking spoilt brat?"

 

"I've broken up with him." Cherry said, "I'm serious, I want to get back with you."

 

"Yeah, I've read on the news." Masaru said, "That guy went bankrupt because his father got scammed in an online fraud. I thought you were dying to be with him that you even had sex with him and abandoned me alone?"

 

"I'm sorry for leaving you back then." Cherry sighed, "So let me make it up to you." She then kissed his cheeks. Utaha saw it from the outside and ran away, tears dropping from her eyes.

 

"Enough is enough." He shook off Cherry's hand and wiped his cheek, "Stop showing fake remorse, or fake love, or both of them, in this case."

 

"I'm just trying to..."

 

"NO!" He stood up sternly, "Listen here, Cherry Sarikumi. I will never ever date you ever again. I will never trust your fake lies ever again. Most importantly, I won't get cheated by you ever again. I've have enough problems on my plate, so don't add more! If you ever appear in front of me, don't blame me for being nasty towards you."

 

He then walked out of the restaurant as the waitress came to Cherry.

 

"May I take your order, miss?"

 

"I'll be leaving soon." Cherry said.

Episode 5

 

"I've told you, didn't I?" Eriri told Utaha in the former's house.

 

"I didn't expect it to be true." Utaha sniffled while Eriri passed her a tissue to wipe her tears.

 

"Why are you crying, though?" Eriri asked, "I thought you said you didn't like him."

 

"I've asked myself that question." Utaha said, "And while I'm on the way here, I think I got the answer."

 

"What's it?" Eriri stopped a while before she shook her head, "No, don't tell me..."

 

"Yes, Eriri." Utaha gave a long sigh, "I wasn't aware and so sure of it, but after today, I realized... I like him."

 

"You got to be fuckin' kidding me." Eriri facepalmed herself, "That is one guy you shouldn't date."

 

"Eriri, what should I do now?" Utaha asked.

 

"Since he went out with another girl, try lashing out at him for breaking his promise. Make sure he feels guilty and never go out with him."

 

"I'm not sure if I can do that." Utaha leaned against Eriri's bed.

 

"You have the courage to do it." Eriri smiled, "Do your best, and scold him as harsh as you can!"

 

The next morning, Masaru arrived early for work and saw Utaha.

 

"Hey, Utaha-san." Masaru asked her, "Where were you yesterday? I could not call you and I couldn't find you anywhere."

 

"Masaru-san," Utaha growled as she glared at him, "Why were you with another girl yesterday?"

 

"I can explain..."

 

"Why did you break the promise with me?"

 

"Hear me out, Utaha-san. I..."

 

"Why must you go out with another girl? Why?"

 

"That's why I told you to hear..."

 

"Stop telling me to hear it out. You even let that girl kiss you! What's..."

 

"I said, HEAR ME OUT!" He shouted at her. Utaha was scared instantly.

 

"WHY WON'T YOU EVER HEAR ME OUT?" Masaru screamed, "ARE YOU DEAF OR SOMETHING? THAT WOMAN IS NOT MY GIRLFRIEND, NOT MY SISTER, NOT ANYBODY IMPORTANT! SHE'S MY EX! SHE CAME TO LOOK FOR ME AND TRIED TO SEDUCE ME BACK! I REJECTED HER! IS THAT SUFFICIENT? IS THAT?"

 

Masaru stopped for a while as Utaha looked down.

 

"Anyway, why are you even so concerned about my ex and me?" Masaru asked, "It's not like you're my girlfriend or something. Guess I shouldn't ask you out next time."

 

He stormed off to his office. Utaha sat down on a stool and started thinking about something.

 

Minutes later, work started again. There is a meeting held soon down at the main hall. The rest except Eriri and Masaru have gone down.

 

Masaru came in Eriri's office and asked her to sign a document. He helped her close her office door.

 

"Where's this from?" She asked.

 

"Tomoya. He told me to ask everyone to sign this paper. Akane wants this because this signature means that Tomoya can only allow you and Utaha to work here because of the game. After this game is done, you're required to leave."

 

"Fine." She signed on the paper and gave it back to Masaru.

 

"Train on your coding." Eriri stood up and leaned against the window behind her chair, "Although there's no work for you to do now, you're going to need it later."

 

"Understood, Sawamura-san." Masaru was about to get out of the room when she muttered, "And improve on your attitude, you useless lover."

 

"You say what?" Masaru asked.

 

"Oh, nothing." Eriri said. He turned back and walked slowly towards her. She slowly backed off until she leaned against the wall beside the window. He then got close to her and clenched his fists. Eriri closed her eyes as he was about to punch her, but he punched the wall instead, his right fist landing right beside her head.

 

Megumi came back up to the office to tell Eriri and Masaru that they are late for the meeting. She then heard a loud sound from Eriri's office. She placed her ear against the door and tried to hear the conversation.

 

"Miss Eriri, I appreciate the advice you gave me for the coding part. I will personally take note." Masaru said, "But have you heard of this phrase 'Don't mix personal matters with work'? Well, you seem to be a great example. A terrific example."

 

"What do you want, Masaru?" Eriri asked angrily.

 

"What do I want?" Masaru started laughing, "What do I want?" He laughed for three seconds before he turned serious, "You have guts to tell Utaha-san to scold me. You really do. I'd applaud for you. Such a capable woman. However, I just want to ask you a question."

 

"W...what question?"

 

"Good question!" Masaru growled, "The question is, why do you have to give me constant trouble? Are you jealous because I broke up with you years ago and you still can't get over it?"

 

Megumi gasped in shock.

 

"Or is it because of the reason why I broke up with you?" Masaru asked. Eriri just kept quiet.

 

"I thought you're always spreading rumors about me being an asshole, having such a big mouth. What? Now you can't open your mouth to tell me."

 

Eriri still stayed quiet.

 

"Tell me, Eriri." He repeated. Still, no response.

 

"TELL ME, YOU BLONDE-HAIRED BITCH!" Masaru shouted at her, "WHY ARE YOU CONSTANTLY ADDING PROBLEMS TO MY PLATE? CAN'T YOU SEE I HAVE ENOUGH? IT'S YOUR FAULT WE BROKE UP, AFTER ALL! WHY DID YOU KEEP TELLING PEOPLE I'M THE BITCH WHEN YOU ARE THE REAL ONE? TELL ME!"

 

Eriri looked away from Masaru.

 

"ALL BECAUSE OF YOUR STUPID FUCKING OTAKU SHIT THAT YOU'RE SO CONCENTRATED ON YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TIME TO SPEND IT WITH ME! WHAT'S ME BEING AN ASSHOLE IF YOU'RE NOT EVEN DEDICATED TO THE RELATIONSHIP?! SINCE YOU WANT TO BRING IN PERSONAL ISSUES HERE, I SHALL DO IT TOO! WHY ARE YOU CONSTANTLY PICKING ON ME? WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT TOMOYA AKI WHEN YOU'RE WITH ME? WHY DID YOU TELL UTAHA THAT I WAS CHEATING ON HER OR SOMETHING? WHY DO YOU AND CHERRY GIVE ME SO MANY PROBLEMS? WHY DID YOU EVEN DATE ME IN THE FIRST PLACE? TO PLAY WITH MY FEELINGS?"

 

Eriri muttered, "I'm sorry."

 

"Is that all that could come out from your filthy, bitchy mouth?" Masaru asked, "Don't think I won't act back even after suffering the shit out from your mouth."

 

He then straightened his blazer, "That's all I have to say, Sawamura-san. We'd better go before we're late for the meeting."

 

He got out of the office as Eriri stared at the wall in front of her, thinking about what Masaru said just now.

 

Masaru walked into the main hall and sat beside Megumi.

 

"Where's Eriri?" Tomoya asked.

 

"Oh, she's in the toilet." Megumi replied.

 

In the toilet, Eriri washed her face and looked at herself in the mirror. Megumi came in.

 

"Eriri, let's get on with the meeting." Megumi said. Eriri nodded.

 

After the meeting, Masaru went back to his office to do some coding practice to cool his mind.

 

"First, Kane. Second, Cherry. Third, Utaha. Fourth, Eriri." He muttered to himself, "I wonder who's the next one."

 

As he was typing, someone knocked on his door.

 

"What do you want, you fucking punk ass bitch?" He asked angrily and looked at the doorstep, only to see Utaha on the verge of crying.

 

"Oh shit." He sighed.

 

He sat down with Utaha a few seconds later after clearing her tears.

 

"I'm sorry for flaring up at you just now, Utaha-san." Masaru said, "It was wrong of me to say harsh things to you."

 

"I should be saying sorry." Utaha sighed, "I shouldn't have doubted you. I know you won't break a promise, from what I heard from Megumi. I know you're facing a lot of problems, as what I heard from her, too. As an apology and encouragement, I would like you to drink the tea I always make for you in the morning. Sorry I didn't do it today morning."

 

"It's okay," Masaru smiled, "And thanks for understanding, Utaha-san."

 

"It was nothing." She blushed.

 

"Dinner tonight?" Masaru asked, "That is, if you still want."

 

"Of course." Utaha said.

 

"Well, to make sure I won't be like last time, I'll let you follow me to my house and I'll change clothes from there. Then I'll take dinner with you."

 

"Sure." Utaha replied.

 

During lunch break, Utaha, Eriri and Megumi met up.

 

"Eriri." Megumi started the conversation, "What's your relationship with Masaru-san?"

 

"Him?" Eriri asked, "Nothing."

 

"Don't tell me it's nothing. I'm sure it's something." Megumi said, "You've been giving him the cold look since he ever stepped into this company."

 

"Even when it was the interview session, you dare not read his name." Utaha added on, "Plus you've been talking bad about him. Is he really that bad?"

 

"He's bad for not giving me a second chance." Eriri grumbled.

 

"Second chance?" Utaha asked.

 

"You're Masaru-san's ex-girlfriend, aren't you?" Megumi asked. Eriri looked at her.

 

"I'm sorry I overheard your conversation with a heated Masaru-san."

 

"It's okay." Eriri said, "I think you ought to know the story. When I was thirteen, and he was fourteen, we started dating. We met through a middle school excursion and he saved me from falling down from a waterfall.

 

"We then kept in contact with each other. We kept meeting up for study sessions and talking to each other. Soon, we fell for each other.

 

"When we got together, I was kinda happy. I never had a boyfriend before, and this guy's considerably a good one. However, a year later, I was faced with one challenge: the drawing competition.

 

"That period of time, I had to concentrate on the drawing. I need to show people that I had the skills to draw. That's why I lied every time he wanted to bring me out on a date to finish the product.

 

"When I was going out with him one day, I kept talking about Tomoya and he just nodded. On the day of his graduation from middle school, it happened after our school hours. I skipped it to finish the art.

 

"Little did I know that would be the end of the relationship. We met up in the park that night, and he started saying stuff like I changed or something. He was so pissed that because of my otaku drawing competition, I had prioritized it over him, and he feels that he's not important. I tried telling him it wasn't that way, but he even told me that every time we go out, I would always think of what Tomoya wants to buy and not what Masaru wants to buy, which is true.

 

"We quarreled that night. Then it started raining suddenly. It's like some bad luck on top of another bad luck. He then did something any lover would hate.

 

"Initiate a break up. He told me that since I lied to him because of the competition, and my drawings are more important than him, he'd rather break up than to suffer more. I tried convincing him, but it was no use. He left me crying in the rain.

 

"I know I did something wrong, and so I tried apologizing the next day. Guess what? He earned my hate for spreading what happened to his friends. Now they call me names like 'bitch' and 'liar'.

 

"Since then, I kinda hated him. But I think back now. If I wasn't so concentrated on my otaku drawing, all these would not have happened."

 

"I don't think it was entirely your fault." Utaha said, "He has some fault too. Like telling his friends and not giving you a second chance."

 

"Eriri, we just hope everyone in this office place is happy." Megumi said, "Let us work together happily. I'm glad you shared with us your story. Hopefully, you and Masaru could just work as colleagues and disregard the events last time."

 

"I'll try my best not to agitate him, or give him faces." Eriri said.

 

"After all, you guys just got to suffer it until we finish this game," Megumi sighed, "Before you go back to Akane's company."

 

"Don't worry, we'll try to make this the best game." Eriri comforted her and smiled, "I promise."

 

"I will, too." Utaha said.

 

"Thanks once again, Eriri and Kasumigaoka-senpai, for helping me and Tomoya." Megumi said. The three girls then hugged each other.
