"Usui", I said surprised.
"Ayuzawa", he said, "You should be more careful."
"I...I know", I said, "When did you arrive?"
"Well, yesterday", he said, "I was trying to find you and you weren't in the maid cafe."
He pulled me into a hug. He held me tightly. I was shocked and didn't move. Tears welled up in my eyes. He was home. Usui pulled back and smiled.
"Ne no crying", he said, "Let's go somewhere warm."
I nodded. He grasped my hand and led me to a house. I looked at it surprised
"Is this your house?" I asked.
"Yes", he said.
He took me in the house. Warmth spread all over my body. He led me to the living room. I sat down near the fire. Usui took off his coat and settled down in the couch across me.
"Ayuzawa", he said, "Your long hair is gone."
"Yeah", I said smugly.
"It looks beautiful on you", he said.
"Thanks", I said.
He leaned back.
"I heard you're a diplomat", he said.
"And I heard you're a doctor", I said back.
"Indeed", Usui said smiling.
He leaned forward.
"Did you miss me?" he asked.
"O...of course", I said, "Why wouldn't I miss the perverted alien stalker."
"Of course that nickname", he said, "My cute maid."
I blushed and looked around.
"Nice place you got", I said.
He nodded and got up.
"Want some tea?" he asked.
"Alright, mistress", Usui teased.
A pang of annoyance struck me. Usui quickly walked to the kitchen. I got up and looked around the house. It was quite simple, yet beautiful. There were pictures on the wall. I froze. They were pictures of me and him. It was in the days where we were in high school. I looked at the one with me in a maid outfit.
"NO!" I exclaimed, "WHAT AM I GOING TO DO! IF THEY SEE THE PICTURE MY SECRET WILL BE OUT!"
Usui started to climb over the ridge. I say him and grabbed his arm.
"ARE YOU CRAZY?!" I exclaimed.
"It's the fastest way down", he said plainly.
"YOU'LL KILL YOURSELF!" I exclaimed, "WHY ARE YOU EVEN DOING THIS?!"
He got down and grabbed my face.
"Because", he started.
He kissed me and pulled away.
"I love you, Ayuzawa", he said.
He jumped off the ledge.
"USUI!" I screamed.
"Ayuzawa", called out Usui, "Where are you?"
I snapped back to reality and walked back to the living room.
"Sorry!" I exclaimed, "I was just looking around!"
"It's alright", he said, "You saw the pictures huh."
H...how did he know? I narrowed my eyes and scooted to the couch and took a sip of the warm tea. Usui leaned back.
"So", he said, "How have you been?"
"Great", I said, "I've been through a lot to get to be where I am. What about you?"
"Boring", he said plainly.
"What why?" I asked.
"The classes were boring, everyday was boring", he sighed.
"I bet there were some parts where you were having fun", I said.
Usui looked out the window.
"Nope", he said.
"Why?" I asked.
"Because I missed you", he said.
I didn't say anything. He smiled softly and got up and sat next to me. I got nervous and scooted a bit down.
"I know that it may be awkward for you right now", he said, "Since I found you today and all."
I looked at his green eyes. They were beautiful and glistened in the firelight.
"I missed you and I missed giving my affection to you", he said.
"A...a...and?" I asked blushing.
He grabbed my arm and pulled me in a hug.
"I want to give all the affection that I had stored in you", he said.
I was frozen in his embrace. This felt awkward, yet it felt nice. I relaxed in his arms and hugged him back. He backed up and got close to me at first. I closed my eyes tightly. He laughed.
"W...what?" I asked.
"Do you think that I would kiss you?" he asked.
"Well….yes", I said opening my eyes again.
He quickly kissed me and backed up a bit. I gasped and looked at him. He looked at me with full emotions. I put my hand on his chest to back him up.
"I know", he whispered, "It made you uncomfortable."
I blushed and looked at his shirt. He put his hand under my cheek.
"Misaki", he said.
"Y...yes?" I asked.
"Remember when I said that I would marry you?" he asked.
I nodded. He looked at the necklace that I was wearing. It was the same one from high school along with his ring. He smiled.
"You remembered", he said.
"How could I forget?" I asked, "I love the man right in front of me."
Usui smiled. He pulled away. Disappointment settled on me.
"You know we're having a Christmas party at my house", he said.
"Really?" I asked.
"Yes", he said.
The doorbell rang. I jumped. He smiled.
"That must be your father and your sister", he said.
He walked to the door, leaving me with my heart beating quickly. My sister and my dad came in. My dad came and hugged me.
"Misaki!" he exclaimed.
"Hi dad", I said.
He hugged me tightly.
"Merry Christmas!" he exclaimed.
"Merry Christmas!" I exclaimed.
Suzuna looked around.
"Woah", she said, "This house is amazing."
"Thanks", Usui said.
Shintani came in and saw Usui.
"Nice house Usui", he said with a pang of jealousy.
"Are you jealous that I have a nicer house than you?" Usui asked teasingly.
"No I'm not!" Shintani exclaimed.
I could see two dogs growling from those two. I smiled. They're going at it again. As time passed soon, many people started filing in. There was Christmas music playing in the background. Food was very good. I had said Merry Christmas to many people. I received and gave presents. Shintani had proposed to Suzuna and of course she said yes. I smiled. Usui was nowhere to be seen. Disappointment settled in my heart.I tightly wrapped my arms around the present for Usui. I walked upstairs and to a room. It was Usui's room. I looked around. It was pretty simple. I walked to the balcony and sat in the chair. The cold air brushed against my skin. I felt a bit chilly. Someone put a warm blanket around me. I looked up. It was Usui.
"I knew I would find you here creeping around", Usui teased.
"I..It's not what you think!" I exclaimed.
Usui smiled and sat down in front of me. I handed out a gift to him.
"I made this a year ago", I said sniffing, "It's not good, but I tried."
Usui widened his eyes and took the present. He took out the scarf and put it around him. He smiled.
"Thank you", he said.
I nodded. I wrapped the blanket around me tightly.
"I do have a present for you", he said.
"You didn't have to", I said.
"This is important", he said.
He took out a small box and handed it to me. I took it in my hands and opened it. There was a ring that had a small diamond in the middle.
"Usui", I started to say.
He took the ring and put it on my ring finger.
"I promised you I would get you a better ring and here it is", he said smiling, "I said I would marry you."
He slipped on the ring on my finger. I looked up at Usui.
"Will you marry me?" he asked.
"Well what do you think my answer will be?" I asked.
"I mean you could say no, but then I feel like you would say yes", said Usui.
"Yes, I will marry you", I said.
Usui smiled and brought me close for a kiss. I closed my eyes.
"WAHHHHH this is your room?!" exclaimed Shintani.
I pushed Usui away quickly.
"Ohh Shintani!" I exclaimed.
"What are you doing in my room?" asked Usui darkly, "Couldn't you at least knock?"
"Well, sorry!" Shintani exclaimed, "I was just looking around!"
Shintani noticed what we were doing and he blushed.
"S...s...sorry!" Shintani exclaimed.
He ran out of the room and shut the door. Usui sighed with annoyance.
"Now where were we-", he started to say.
Shintani opened the door again.
"By the way, Misaki-chan, Merry Christmas!" Shintani exclaimed.
Usui threw a pillow at Shintani and it hit his face.
"OWWW!' Shintani exclaimed.
"You should've knocked", he said.
Shintani quickly ran away. Usui sighed and turned to me. I held in my laughter.
"That Shintani", Usui mumbled.
I put my hand on Usui's cheek and kissed him lightly on the lips. I pulled back quickly and covered my mouth. Usui looked surprised.
"Misaki", he started to say.
"Noooo don't look at me!" I exclaimed, "I...I...I'm just hot!"
I ran to the balcony to cool off my burning face. Usui wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me to him.
"I don't want you cold Ayuzawa", he said.
"N...n...no!" I exclaimed, "I'm totally fine!"
I got out of his grasps, but he kept hugging me.
"Ne I'm cold", Usui complained teasingly.
"N...no you're not!" I exclaimed.
For the whole Christmas night we were like that everything was back to normal again, yet I was going to be married. To Usui.
A month later...
"Your honor, please he is lying!" I exclaimed.
"What proof do you have?!" shouted the victim.
I narrowed my eyes to the victim.
"I have enough evidence to prove that you had killed the girl!" I exclaimed.
"What proof do you Miss. Ayuzawa?" asked the judge.
I walked to him with a tan envelope. There were pictures of him at the scene and the knife with fingerprints.
"It clearly proves that the knife has his DNA and has fingerprints on the knife", I said, "Also we have a video recording of him leaving the scene and dumping the body in the trash can."
The victim stood silent.
"T...that isn't me!" He exclaimed.
"There is a witness that saw you drag a black bag to the dumpster!" I exclaimed, "Confess it! There's no point in denying it!"
"Fine!" He exclaimed, "I did it!"
"Why did you do it may I ask?" The judge asked.
The man fell silent.
"Vengeance", he said quietly.
"As to what I see", said the judge, "I conclude that this man is guilty and you will be sentenced to 10 years in prison. Case dismissed."
He slammed his small wooden hammer down and it was the end of the session. I smiled with approval. The man was taken away. The mother of the daughter came to me and thanked me over and over again. My case was closed. I was leaving the courthouse and I saw Usui waiting in his car. He was busy dozing off. I walked to the car and got in.
"When did you get here?" I asked.
"20 mins ago", he said yawning.
"You didn't have to pick me up you know", I said.
"It's worth waiting for you", Usui said smiling.
We didn't move from the courthouse.
"Did you win the case?" he asked.
"Yes I did", I said.
"Good now let's go", he said.
"W...what?" I asked.
"Well, we got to get approval that we're getting married", he said.
"A...ah right", I said.
We walked back to the courthouse. The same judge was there waiting.
"Ah Miss. Ayuzawa", he said, "You're getting married to this fine young man?"
"Yes sir", I said.
The judge smiled. After we got approval, we walked back to the car. We drove back to Usui's house.
"Ayuzawa", he said.
"Yes?" I asked.
"What date will we get married?" Usui asked.
"Spring?" I asked.
Usui shook his head.
"But spring time is where the sakura trees bloom!" I exclaimed.
"Pollen", Usui said.
"Then how about summer?" I asked.
"Too hot", he said.
"Winter?" I asked.
"Winter already is gone", Usui said.
"Fall?" I asked.
"It passed", Usui said.
"Then when?!" I exclaimed, "Might as well go for next week!"
"Yes", Usui said.
"W...what?" I asked surprised.
"Next week", Usui said again, "I'm not waiting anymore. I want you as mine and I want to marry you so we can live happily ever after."
"But next week is so soon!" I exclaimed, "I have a lot of cases to go through."
"I already told your boss and he said it was alright", Usui said.
"But the invitations and the reservations-", I started to say.
"Already done", he said, "All we need is for you to say yes."
I was surprised and speechless. Usui put a hand on my cheek.
"I've been waiting for this day to marry you and it's going to happen", he said.
I blushed and looked at him. Usui kissed me softly on the lips.
"We're going to have so much fun", he whispered.
I backed up quickly.
"B...BAKA USUI!" I exclaimed.
"What?" he teased, "It's natural for couples like us to do."
"N...no!" I exclaimed, "Baka!"
Usui laughed. He chased me around the house. Of course Usui was like a perverted alien stalker and it annoyed me, yet he was my perverted alien stalker.
A week later...
I woke up to the sound of my alarm. I wanted to sleep more. My bed was warm and soft. I opened my eyes a little and saw a figure looking down at me. My vision become clear and it was Suzuna. I jumped and rolled to the other side of the bed.
"W...what are you-?" I started to ask.
"Oneechan!" Suzuna exclaimed, "Good you're up."
"Yes, I'm more awake now that you're here", I said.
"Good, we need to get you ready for you big day", she said.
"What big day?" I asked.
Suzuna gave me a face.
"Don't tell me you actually forgot!" she exclaimed.
"What?" I asked.
"You're getting married!" Suzuna exclaimed.
Right. I was...getting...married! I quickly got up and headed to the bathroom. I quickly took a shower and got washed up. Suzuna was waiting for me to change.
"Hurry up", she said, "We need to be at the hair salon by 7."
"I'm hurrying!" I exclaimed.
I quickly changed into my clothes and ran to the door. We drove to the salon. There were all my co workers from maid cafe.
"Ah Misaki-chan! exclaimed them all.
They started on my hair and makeup. I got ready and I wore my white wedding dress. They backed up and smiled in approval.
"Nee Oneechan, you're beautiful", she said.
"Where is Usui?" I asked.
"He's with Shintani and the guys", Suzuna replied, "Plus it's bad luck to see the bride before the procession starts."
I got worried. I hope they didn't kill each other. We went in a limo and drove to the garden that we were getting married at. The music was playing in the background. I walked to the entrance. My dad was waiting for me.
"Hey beautiful", he said smiling.
"Hey dad", I said.
He hugged me tightly. He put something around my neck. It was a silver clover on a silver chain.
"Dad", I said.
"It was your mothers", he said, "She wanted you to have it when you got married."
"Oh dad", I said.
He shook his head.
"No tears!" He exclaimed.
He held out an arm.
"I'm sure your mother is proud and happy", he said smiling.
I took his arm.
"Ready?" he asked.
"Yes", I said, "Are you?"
"Nope", he said smiling.
We entered the place where the pastor was.
"Please stand for the bride is coming", said the pastor there.
I heard everyone rise. I walked through the doors and saw the crowd. They were smiling. Some women were crying and they stared at me with awe. My eyes loomed over to Usui. I gasped. He was there in a tux. He looked beautiful in my eyes. Usui's mouth opened a bit in surprise. As I came closer to him, he extended his hand towards me. He exchanged glances with my dad.
"Take care of my daughter", he said.
Usui nodded. I took Usui's arm and we walked to the pastor. We exchanged vows and rings.
"Do you promise to love Misaki with all your heart and never cheat?" asked the pastor.
"I do", Usui said.
"Then, do you promise to love Takumi with all your heart?" he asked.
"I do", I said.
"I pronounce you as husband and wife. You may kiss the bride", the pastor said.
I came forward and kissed him first. Usui was surprised. He kissed me back. The crowd was laughing and clapping. We walked around the garden and chatting with each other. Usui's grandfather came to greet us.
"Congratulations", he said smiling.
"Thank you sir", I said.
"Call me grandfather", he said.
"Hai grandfather", I said smiling.
"Well, here's the schedule for today and for the next 3 days", Gerald said.
He handed Usui a schedule.
"You'll be busy", said Gerald.
Usui had a face of disapproval. There was a large wind over us. I looked up and a helicopter flew in.
"Come Misaki", he said.
"H...hai!" I exclaimed.
I walked to him, but Gerald stopped me.
"Are you not going to go by the schedule?" Gerald asked.
"No", I said, "I'm sure I want my h..h..husband to be comfortable."
"Please give up", I said.
"Usui needs to be in England after three days", he said.
Grandfather stopped him.
"Let them go', he said, "We lost."
He smiled. Gerald looked at me and nodded.
"Go", he said, "You heard the man."
I smiled and kissed his cheek. Gerald looked at me surprised. I hugged my dad and my friends. I hugged Usui's grandfather. I ran to Usui. Usui grabbed my waist and held on to me tightly.
"Congratulations!" said the crowd underneath me.
"Thank you!" I exclaimed.
Usui looked at me a bit jealous.
"What?" I asked.
"You kissed Gerald's cheek", he said stubbornly.
I smiled and kissed him.
"But I kissed you", I said smiling.
Usui smiled and held tightly on me.
"Prepare to have the best honeymoon ever", he said, "Mrs. Usui"
"B...baka!" I exclaimed.
Usui laughed and kissed my cheek. We flew to the airport. This was the best wedding ever.
