MARBLE EYED PRINCE
Makino Tsukushi, just like hundred of other girls, had fallen in love with the beautiful marble-like eyes of Hanazawa Rui. But her, unlike those other girls, knows him, and loves him not for his money.
While holding the white handkerchief, staring at the beautiful view the fire exit could provide, and then screaming at the top of her lungs. "I WANT TO SEE THAT PERSON AGAIN!" Then she turned to look at the stairs, checking.
"Who do you want to see?" a soft voice came from the entrance door. And Makino knew, even without looking, whose voice that belonged to.
"Hanazawa Rui!" She pretended to be surprised but just the fact that he was there made her nervous that sometimes, it was hard to lie.
Lying was not really on the top of things Makino Tsukushi is good at.
"So, who is it?" He continued, walking down and looking at her carefully. Leaning down because of her height.
"I...ummm...I...Its..Uh..." Was her smart reply.
Rui thought for a second then turned to look at the view, this move made Tsukushi exhale, she wasn't good at being near boys after all. "Is it Shizuka?" He guessed.
"Shi...zu...ka?" Makino slowly tried to identify why her prince would want to her, Makino Tsukushi, to meet her rival, Todo Shizuka. Not that she has anything against the woman, she's in fact her role model.
"Didn't you say that you had always admired her?" Rui guessed.
Understanding, she nodded. "Yes!" And then she stared at him, realizing that whatever she might do, it could not change the fact that this person, Hanazawa Rui, loves Todo Shizuka and her, Makino Tsukushi is nothing. But she wanted to help now, it seemed that Rui is shy about his feelings.
"Great. I'll bring you to her. She likes you." Rui had at last smiled.
That afternoon, Rui did bring Tsukushi to the house of Shizuka. He left the two of them to talk as he went to the living room.
"Tsukushi-chan!" Shizuka greeted, smiling then giving her a small hug. "What brings you here?"
"Ah, Konbanwa Shizuka-san." She bowed the saw the suite cases around the beautiful model. 'Shizuka-san...are you going anywhere...?"
"Ah. I'm going away. To pursue my dream." Shizuka answered as Makino still stared at the room.
"Demo...isn't this...enough?" Makino asked, walking close to a table that has a picture frame in it.
Rui and Shizuka.
"Tsukushi-chan, I have other dreams. I want to become a lawyer. You understand, right?" Shizuka smiled at the younger girl who seemed to be engrossed at the picture in her table.
Makino Tsukushi knows. She knows that hanging onto her crush on Hanazawa Rui would ger her nowhere. Especially if Shizuka is in the picture. But it seemed that without her, Rui is nothing. And without her, Rui is destroyed. She knows, that whatever happens, they were made for each other.
Yes, she loved Rui. But why bother onto him? If he'll only get hurt?
She suddenly ran to where Shizuka is standing and got onto her knees. "Shizuka-san, please...don't go..."
"Tsukushi-chan? What's wrong?" The model also stood on her knees, looking at the younger girls eyes, the younger girl's pure and innocent eyes.
"Please...don't leave...Hanazawa Rui will be ruined. He loves you, right? If you leave..." Makino's voice trailed as she heard a small set of foots behind her.
"MAKINO!" the usual soft voice yelled at her. He grabbed her by the arm, pulling her awaty.
"Rui! Don't hurt her." Shizuka called, but the marble-eyed man just stared at her the started pulling Makino outside.
"It hurts! Hanazawa Rui! It hurts!" Makino kept repeating as she was pulled outside, in the garden.
"Who told you to beg her? Did you just want to see her so that you can beg? I didn't ask you to beg!" Rui was mad, he had not expected that the strong weed-Makino Tsukushi would go down on her knees and beg Shizuka to stay on his behalf.
Makino stared at her with the peircing gaze that bothered Tsukasa. Then she pulled her hand away from his tight grip. She faced him without the usual nervous gaze she has. Even with the height difference, she looked like someone that could take him down with one punch. But he was not a coward.
"I begged her! WHY? Because even though you love her you don't seem to grasp the fact that she's leaving you!" Makino yelled, her hands on her hips.
"So what is it to you? I took you to her so that she could enjoy! And I don't need her to stay just because she felt guilty for leaving me!" Hanazawa Rui tried to remain his composture again.
"But how can she know you want her to stay if you don't tell her?" Makino asked.
"If...she loves me." He simply replied, so low that Makino had a hard time trying to understand it.
"YOU COWARD! I would have hit you right now if I didn't love you! COWARD!" Makino yelled then started to stomp away, not realizing she had already told him his feelings.
"Makino! Wait!" Hanazawa Rui called in his usual sweet voice and almost instantly Makino's body turned around, her eyes still the violent shade of brown.
"About what you said..." He didn't know how to say it.
Makino tried to rewind her memory when her eyes widened at THAt memory and she clasped her mouth with her right hand, "Ah! I'm sorry that I said that if its something that might be bothering you in the past just forget about it~" She added with her haid shaking a bit.
Judging by the wat she replied, Rui knows that she had realized what caught his attention. "Is it true though?"
"Huh?" Makino didn't anticipate this kind of reply, she was actually waiting for a beating, "True as in the truth or true as in something that I should pretend?" She asked, looking at his shoes that seemed so cute.
"True as in..." He placed his finger on his chin so that she could see his eyes, "True as in truth."
What beautiful eyes...
"Yes. I do. Its...the truth." The breathtaking beautiful eyes he had seemed to be a truth potion for her.
He didn't know what to do at first, he knew he liked this girl that seemed to give off her own kind of waves. But how could that happnen when she was supposed to love Todo Shizuka?
And then there's the answer.
He thought he loved Shizuka. He pretended. And then now, he had finally realized it.
And the person he loves is this girl that is confessing herself to him. And so, he leaned down...and kissed her.
