I pick up the phone once I get in. I call my older brother.
"Hello, Hachirou Taniyama speaking who is this?" He asks.
"This is your little sister." I say and he goes silent.
"What is your decision?" He asks me.
"I'll take care of her, but if I can't do it she will go back to you okay." I say and he seems to brighten up.
"Thank you, Mai, so much even though we just met I am so glad I have met you, you are the best person ever. I am rambling now I'm sorry but anyway, thank you thank you thank you so so so much." He says and I laugh.
"I never want any child to be out there without anyone good looking after not like me. I was left alone for years hell I am still alone but know I'm at an age where I am supposed to be alone." I say.
"When do you think you can take her?" He asks me and I chuckle.
"I have the next few weeks off of work how about next week, then she can get settled in and we can get on a normal basis," I say.
"Okay," He says and then hangs up. I sigh and sit down on my couch. Naru is going to be pissed. No, he will be furious but he doesn't understand. I just found out I had a brother and his child was about to go through what I went through, I will never under my power let that happen to a child. I guess I drift off to sleep because when I wake up to someone knocking on the door it is dark out. I get up and walk over to the door and look through the peephole to see Naru standing there looking worried. I smile and let him in.
"Why have you not been answering your phone you scared everyone, Mai!" He says and I just hug him. He seems taken aback for a moment and then wraps his arms around me.
"Sorry, Naru I was asleep." I say and he nods his head. I look up at him and smile. "Want to come in?" I ask and he nods and heads in sending a text to Lin saying I am okay. Once he sits down I make tea for the both of us. I sit down and he sips at his tea.
"So what do we do now?" I ask softly because I have no clue. Do we tell the others, do we keep quiet for a little while.
"I think you should tell them, at least, they will stop looking at us weirdly." Naru says and I let out a chuckle.
"How late is it?" I ask him and he looks at me and then down at his watch.
"Around 1 a.m." Naru says calmly and my eyes widen.
"Why are you here!" I yell and then lower my voice."You worried that I wasn't alright so you came to my apartment at 1 a.m.?" I ask.
"Well, of course, that is what boyfriends do." Naru says and I grin I lean over and kiss him.
