Kaori put her phone away. Maybe it was best not to get into it with Ellie, about Milo.
"What is it?" J was getting ready for bed. "Did something happen to Ellie?"
Kaori tried to laugh, but she really couldn't. Still, it was ridiculous, wasn't it? Ellie getting married over the Internet.
"You... can't do that, can you?" Kaori wanted to know.
Of course, J said she'd have to Google it. She jabbed him in the side with her finger, and he chuckled softly, giving her a hug. But of course, she went to her laptop to Google it.
It was a relief to find there was no truth to it. She guessed.
She winced then.
"He came all this way to marry her!" Now she was really mad at Ellie.
"Oh, stop. You're making too much out of it. He sounds a bit of a romantic." J told her. "This isn't Ellie's fault." Shouldn't she be on Ellie's side?
"She won't talk about Nico, you know." Kaori reminded him that Ellie was still keeping secrets.
"You, don't need to know, everything..do you?" Now they were almost in a tiff. "You, didn't tell her about the time I spent the night with you, now did you?"
Kaori crossed her arms, she was in a huff. Of course, Ellie guessed. Still she didn't make a big deal about it. Of course, that was over four years ago.
"Be the good friend you are." J said and closed the laptop before Kaori could google anything else. It was getting late. He kissed the side of her face.
"I love you," he said.
Oh, he always won in the end. And he was always right.
