Kaori thought she might lose consciousness. Was she dreaming? J was actually here!
Suddenly, he'd arrived too early. She wasn't expecting him, just yet. There was school tomorrow.
Yet, she let him sweep her off the floor. He swung her about as if she was in her own movie moment.
She studied his eyes, there was so much she wanted to say, but she couldn't. And he didn't really talk, either. The kiss was so unexpected, but definitely a sensation of what she remembered of him. Amazingly electric.
Finally, he let her down.
"I came home early, so we could spend more time together." He looked to Nico and Ellie who were behind the counter.
Ellie looked surprised, but she snapped her fingers and smiled. "Time, yes, time..you two need..a..lot of time." She mimicked then said something into Nico's ear, as if he needed to put in a good word.
"Well..yeah." His eyes were open wide as he looked at Ellie. "Of course, they do." He put his arm around Ellie who slid his arm off her shoulder, immediately. "Ellie, can..she's..she's staying at my place tonight." He stuttered.
Immediately, Kaori looked to Ellie, who smiled meekly, but then made a funny face. "We've been talking about this for weeks." She jabbed Nico in the side. He tensed and jumped away from Ellie, but she took his arm and put it around her waist as if they couldn't wait to get out of here.
"Huh." Kaori felt slightly not ready for this moment. She needed to shave her legs. She needed new underwear. All she owned were boy briefs that were much more comfortable than those lacy ones. She almost made a face. J might see her in her underwear tonight.
