Haruhi comes back

Haruhi's POV:

"Haruhi!" announced the principle, "Please come to the stand."

Yes I am Haruhi. I go to a university in America. I wanted to study abroad and well, I did. Life has been a bit fun for me. I was in America learning everything I could. Yet I miss the host club I had in Japan. I plan to go back this summer. I was graduating the university and today was my graduation day. I was going to become a doctor. I finally chose what I wanted to do. I smiled as I walked up the steps to the stand. The principle was there and gave me a diploma. I smiled and shook his hand. I walked down.

After the ceremony, I walked up to my rent apartment. It was empty because I sent my things to my father in Tokyo. I looked around and smiled. I picked up my bookbag and started to go out. I gave the keys back to the apartment owner and I took a taxi to the airport.

When I arrived in Japan, I was met by my father. He was happily skipping to me and pulled me in a tight hug,

"Haruhi, welcome back!" exclaimed my father, "Ready to go home?"

I smiled and nodded. We went back to our house. My dad got a new job and we moved to a bigger house. I told my dad everything and showed him my diploma. My dad already got me a job at a hospital. Angel's hospital was the name. That was the only thing he wanted to do for me. I start next month. After we finished talking, I went to my room to sleep. I opened the door and closed it. My room was still the same, my dad had already set up everything that I sent him. I plopped down on my bed. It was nice and cool. My phone began to buzz. I looked at it. It was Tamaki. My heart jumped a bit, I've always liked Tamaki. I haven't seen him in 4 years. I wonder how he was.

"Hello?" I said.

"Is this Haruhi?" asked Tamaki.

"This is Tamaki", I said smiling.

"I heard you just came back from America", he said.

"How?" I asked curiously.

"Kyoya", he said.

I knew it. Kyoya was still in contact with my dad.

"How have you been for the past 4 years?" I asked.

"Fine", he said, "How about you?"

"Great", I said, "I finished college and well I already have a job."

"That's great", he said.

"How are the others?" I asked.

"They are doing fine as always", said Tamaki.

I just felt butterflies go to my stomach. Just talking with Tamaki again really made my heart flutter.

"Hey", he said.

"Yes?" I asked.

"Do you want to meet up tomorrow?" he asked quickly.

"Sure", I said, "What time?"

"12", he said.

"Deal", I said smiling.

"Great", he said happily, "Well, good night."

"Night", I said.

I hung up the phone. I smiled. I was going to meet Tamaki tomorrow! I grabbed my pillow and hugged it tightly. I froze. Why am I having this feeling? I shouldn't make it obvious! I put my head on top of my pillow and sighed. What's going on with me. There was a message sound coming from my phone. I quickly picked up my phone and looked at it. It was a message from Tamaki. I opened it. It was a picture of the members now. They looked older, mature, and handsome. There was a message at the bottom.

"I'll see you tomorrow. Good night~"

My heart skipped a beat. I smiled and set my phone on my desk. I got under the covers and closed my eyes. I was ready for what was happening tomorrow.

The next morning, I woke up early to take a shower and get ready. I wore a white t shirt along with a short sleeved jacket. I wore shorts and I was going to wear my tennis shoes. I walked to the front door and walked out. There was a black car waiting for me. The door opened. Tamaki got out and smiled. My heart skipped many beats. I looked at him smiling and blushing.

"Tamaki", I said.

Tamaki smiled and walked over to me and hugged me tightly.

"Haruhi", he said softly, "Daddy missed you."

I smiled. I remember that he would alway say that he was my daddy. I hugged him tightly.

"Where are the others?" I asked.

"We are meeting them soon", said Tamaki, "Get in."

I got in the car. It was silent at first. I looked out the window.

"How was America?" he asked.

"It was great", I said happily.

"That's great", he said relieved.

We drove up to a bakery shop. Once I got out, I was attacked with a group hug. I smiled.

"Hey!" I exclaimed.

"Hi Haruhi", said the twins at once.

"You guys haven't changed at all!" I said happily, "Except your hair color."

They smiled mischievously. Mori and Kyoya was the same, except they were a bit taller and more muscular. Honey was there growing taller. He looked like a teenager at his age. I smiled and pinched his cheek.

"Are you still eating cake again?" I asked.

"I still am, Haruhi", he said happily.

We walked in the bakery shop and we started to chat. Everyone shot questions at me. How I was and how was America and all.

"Haruhi", asked Honey, "Have you been dating anyone recently?"

I blushed. Everyone looked at me with anxious eyes.

"Of course not!" I exclaimed, "I was busy with study."

Honey smiled and leaned back into his chair.

"You heard her", he said, "She hasn't dated anyone!"

Everyone smiled a bit.

"Do you like anyone?" asked Hikaru.

I didn't answer that question, but I blushed.

"You do!" he exclaimed.

Once again, everyone's eyes were on me. I started to sweat. I looked over at Tamaki. He looked out the window not caring what I was going to say or not, but in his eyes showed me that he was listening and that he cared. It showed me that he wanted to now too. Tamaki hasn't made any contact with me ever since. The others would tease me, yet Tamaki was sitting quietly.

When it was time for everyone to go home, I promised that I would come by the host club tomorrow. Tamaki took me home. It was quiet in the car on the way back.

"Tamaki", I said.

"Yes?" he asked.

"Why haven't you said anything?" I asked.

"Well, I wanted to talk with you alone", he mumbled.

"What?" I asked.

"I wanted to talk with you alone", he said.

He looked at me.

"Well we are alone right now", I said.

"True", he said.

He was quiet all the way home. I was really confused. I got out of the car and Tamaki walked me to the entrance of the gate.

"Today was great", I said smiling.

"Great", he said.

"I had fun", I said.

"So did I", he said.

I hesitated. I felt like he had no interest in me anymore. I looked down and sighed.

"Well, good night", I said.

I turned around to open the gate. He grabbed my arm and leaned me against the wall.

"Haruhi", he said.

I looked at him.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

He looked down. I looked at him confused. I felt hot drops on my hands. Was he crying? I gently raised my hands to his face and touched it slightly. I lifted his chin so he would look at me.

"Tamaki", I whispered.

He was crying indeed. His eyes looked hurt.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

He hugged me tightly.

"I missed you", he said.

I stood there surprised.

"I was in depression, that you weren't here", he said sadly, 'Your absence made me so lonely."

I hugged him back.

"I'm sorry", I said sadly, 'But I am here aren't I?"

"Don't leave me", he said sadly, "I love you."

My eyes widened. He loved me?

"If you love someone else", he said, "I'll do anything for you to be happy."

My heart was beating so fast. Did he really miss me that much?

I lifted his head and looked at him wiping his tears.

"I'm sorry", I said softly, "I won't leave."

He smiled and nodded. He straightened his back and patted my head.

"Well, expect me to pick you up tomorrow", he said.

He walked back to his car and nodded at me. He got in and drove away. I walked in. My dad was waiting for me.

"Welcome home", he said happily.

"Hi dad", I said.

"Did you have fun today?" he asked.

"Yeah I did", I said.

"Well, sleep well", he said.

"Good night", I said.

"Haruhi", he called.

"Yes?" I asked.

"Im glad you are back", he said.

I nodded and went to my room. I got cleaned up and ready for bed. I jumped into my covers and stayed still. My heart was beating quickly. I kept having flashbacks of him telling me that he loved me. I blushed and covered the blanket over my head.

It was midnight when I was awakened by the bell and thunder. I got up scaredly and walked down the stairs. I opened the door and it was Tamaki. After a couple of minutes, I rubbed my eyes and looked up. I got my senses together and it was Tamaki. I saw flashes of lightning and I shrieked. Tamaki got it and pulled me close. I shivered violently. My dad always went out to work around midnight.

"It's ok", he said softly.

I held onto him tightly.

"It's ok", he said again.

He picked me up and took me to my room. He gently laid me down and pulled the covers. He put headphones on me and stayed by my side. The sweet music rang to my ears. I looked at Tamaki. He had a smile on his face and he was wet from the rain. My eyes slowly closed. I went to sleep with music in my head. It was peaceful. How did Tamaki come at the right time? Why did he come?
