It was a bright and a sunny day and Misaki and Usui were in maid latte staff room. Usui was cooking and manager was thanking him for his help. The usual. Misaki was dedicated to her work. She served every customer with a smile, even the three idiots. She just entered the kitchen with an empty tray when Honoka showed up behind her.
“Usui there are some guys in black outside who want to see you. Some of them I recognize from Miyabigoka and there is a guy who looks exactly like you but his hair color is different. Strange. He is like your twin brother. And there was an old man who seemed like their leader. It was quite strange to see Miyabigoka president to treat him like a boss. A bit creepy too. But what do I know. For a change it's good that they are coming for Usui and not Misaki. I wonder what they want…" saying this dark Honoka disappeared behind the curtains.
Usui face, on hearing the news went from shock to agony to anger to now pale white. As if he feared that now worse would happen. Seeing Usui's reaction Misaki's heart skipped a beat. She couldn’t bear the mystery so she decided to go out and have a look. But as she was about to leave Usui turned and went to changing room. Misaki shocked, followed Usui there instead.
Usui straight went to his locker and pulled out a black shimmering coat. Then he searched for a very formal off white color tie and at the last used some gel to pull his hair back. He looked like he was just coming out of a board meeting not some part time kitchen job.
Misaki gave him a questioning-worried look to
which he simply gave a reassuring smile- even though he wasn't sure himself of
what was going to happen next - and added
" no matter what, don't come out Misaki” and left for the second floor where those men in black were waiting for him.
Once he reached the second floor he observed that there was nobody else except those people. In centre were sitting three people - on the right was his half brother Gerard with Cedric standing behind him, in middle was an old men with grey glossy hair that stuck behind his ear whom Usui easily recognized as his grandfather, and to the left was president Igarashi,whose smile would have put evil to shame, with Maki standing at his back.
Robert walker, Usui grandfather started to talk “I had never thought that I would personally have to come to talk some sense into you. But seeing your condition it seem you are worse then what I have expected. Our family always supported you and tried our best to make your life successful, to make you independent and when time came to show your little gratitude towards us you are revolting against us and that to for that cheap characterless maid. I should have expected that from you. After all you are a sin from a filthy man who had an affair with a married woman for her money. Poor my daughter. She had to pay the price for this sin with her life. And you now like your father are living a filthy life. Running behind maids, being a cook and serving others for some yen. You are a disgrace to our family. I should have discarded you when you were born. You are as useless and burdensome as your father. It's been decided."
Every one of those words was like a stab to
Usui. He was trying hard to think a way out of this. He had always expected
this to happen sooner or later but he had never expected to feel this helpless.
He tried to find a point to argue but could think of nothing. So he stated the
most horrible thing he could have.
"But I love her and …"
Before he could have said anything Robert interrupted angrily
"Enough… I don't want any of that nonsense. you are coming with us to England. Now it's on you that you want to come easy way or we would have to opt for harder ways. Decide.” With these words Robert stood up, his back to Usui.
Usui felt hopeless. He didn't want to give up on Ayuzawa but also didn't want these people to make her life miserable. He will have to find a way to make them realize what Misaki is to him. But how? It was unlikely of them to listen anything now except a yes.
His last hopes were also failing. He felt miserable. His face was pained as if it would break any second now. Igarashi was enjoying every second of it and rest felt a bit miserable for the blond but keeping in mind the gravity of situation they shut their mouth. Usui racked his mind for a way out of the situation but came up with nothing. At last he heaved a sigh and prepared himself for the tough decision.
“Before I say yes I want to know what I am being dragged into?" Usui added with confidence, though he didn't felt even one bit of confidence.
Robert faced him with a victorious smile and added “you don’t need to worry about anything. You already know all you need to know."
Usui gave up and stood. Everyone in the room started to leave. First was Robert followed by Gerard and his butler and last was Igarashi with Maki. Usui too joined the line. As they mount the stairs they all met Misaki’s eyes. Robert gave her an expression of disgust, Gerard a gentle smile, beside him Cedric expressionless and Igarashi gave her a devilish and seductive smile and then Maki joined in with a courteous smile. In the end the expression for which Misaki was holding her breath showed but it gave Misaki no relief. Usui held his head low and walk past Misaki not caring to look up, as if he was afraid to show Misaki what he felt. Misaki followed them out the door and saw them all living in a limo and a hundred of guards following them in other SUVs. Her sight held Usui’s sad and fatigue face until he was not visible anymore.
Misaki all distracted somehow just dragged through her job. Seeing Misaki expression nobody dared to ask her about Usui and what was all that about. Once her job was over she left for her home. Seeing Usui was not waiting outside maid latte she clutched her throbbing heart to grab a control over the situation. Walking alone all the way home didn’t helped her in shoving the wild thoughts that she was having.
Once home she took a bath to calm herself but it had an opposite effect on her. Now when her senses were aroused she could feel the darkness of situation more clearly. Her mind was clogged with the negative thoughts. So she decided to get out of the bath and to skip her dinner and straight dive to her bed. There she lay restless trying to clear her mind.
She trusted Usui and knew he would never leave her alone. They would fight back together. They had decided that and she knew Usui would keep his side of promise. So there was no reason to doubt Usui. He would definitely come to school tomorrow and would tell that situation was taken care of. Yes that was right Usui can take care of almost anything and would never leave Misaki alone. Would he? With such restless thought she slowly drifted to sleep.
Next day was bright and warm. In distant place chirping of the birds could be heard. A perfect morning for starting a day. If your mind was not blogged with a matter on which your life depended. Misaki's shoulders were slump as she again skipped her breakfast and left for school. She couldn't rest until she knows what was happening. She dragged her feet for school.
At the main gate of Seika was standing a limo
and on the side was there Usui, leaning. On other side of limo were standing
various guards in black. Other students of Seika were standing at a radius of 5
m as if they were all of a sudden afraid of Usui in a formal black coat. Misaki
straight ran to him to stand in front of him with a questioning glance. Usui
looked up to Misaki and gave her a short smile which made Misaki more worried
rather than assured.
" I am sorry Misaki …"
That was enough to break Misaki’s bubble of patience. She broke and started blabbering
" you cannot do this... I won't let you... You are not going anywhere. You promised. You made me trust you and other guys. How could you do this? You want to leave me. You want me to return back to the demon pres who is a guy hater. You are worse than my father. Usui please. I am warning you... If I turned back to the original demon you will be the first one to face my wrath. So don't go. Please Usui don't leave me alone on this. You promised..."
With the end tears started to flow out of her eyes. Usui shocked at this sudden outburst couldn't do anything but curse himself for what he was going to do. He stood there dumbfounded. At this a second outburst took place
“Stupid Usui, say something! " and she started hitting him.
Seeing this guard took a step forward and other Seika students took a step backward, scared.
Usui unaffected by this encircled Misaki in a bear hug and Misaki immediately gave up. In Usui’s arms her cry changed into small sobs and when she was calm enough Usui whispered in her ears
“Don’t worry Misaki, I will definitely come and get you"
at this Misaki looked up at him with expectant
eyes to which he replied with a smile
" where am I to go without my personal maid."
Misaki said softly “pervert”
Usui kissed Misaki, a soft kiss which stated that they were not going to see each other for a long time and for first time in life Misaki didn't oppose to their kissing in public. Usui break apart and touch Misaki’s head ever so lightly and said "take care". Then he entered the car and closed the door with soft thud giving Misaki a last glance and drove off.
Misaki was left alone behind, staring at the droving off car. Shizuko and Sakura joined Misaki and kept a hand on her shoulder to show there sympathy. Only few words escape her mouth
"I will wait..."
Rest of the day was peaceful for Misaki as nobody dares to ask her anything or spout nonsense in front of her even though the school was in turmoil. Every girl in school was in tears as Usui was gone and every guy was missing their idol already. Misaki left for maid latte with no words and once there Misaki got to work without any delay.
Usui was going to work hard to have them together so she was going to be strong too. With new energy rushing through her she met every difficulty in her life.
