Red

Chapter 4

Author's note: honestly ? I have no ideas how I get this story to chapter 4 .At first, it's a ideas about fem Akira hit my head and I think " ok, I should try it" and I started to write this story as one-shot song-fic of the song "Red", and then 2nd and 3rd chapters come from...i don't know, they just hit my head and demand to be written...

Anyway, so this is the 4th chapter of my song fic :) the song is " Mine" and of course the singer is Taylor Swift ( I think I should use her songs only because from the beginning of this song fic, I've already used her song) I've written it at nearly midnight so if there're mistakes I made, please tell me so that I can get better for next time ( the inspiration come when I have a date with 3 coolest : my pillow, my blanket and my bed !)

The Go's world is taken by storm by nobody but the new generation- the young people who the Kuwabara Honinbou once called " The New Wave" from all over the world in every aspects that you can imagine. There're contests, competitions and schools being opened and hold for people who love Go. Together with it are the lot of news announced that the game once rules Asian will once again, stand up and show the world it's strength, the new Go's players are coming as heavy rains in summer,bring back the life for the ancient chess...above all of it is the new of marriage between Shindou Jyudan and the ex-Mejin's daughter- the currently Touya Mejin...the new spear like fire not only because they are the youngest tillte holders but also because not many people believed it, who can think they are lovers when wherever , whenever they play Go together, it'll always end by the shouting contest?

In the end when realize that's truth, they just simply shook their head and said : "...this love story is so unpredictable..."

"You were in college working part time waitin' tablesLeft a small town, never looked backI was a flight risk with a fear of fallin'Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts"

Hikaru look at himself in mirror, combing his hair by hand nevously making his friends and family laugh at him. Waya shook his head and said :

" Dude, ya look fine, now stop doing that face, look like you are going to panic anytime.."

"I don't!..." he asnwer "...i've just..."

Isumi put a hand on his friend's shoulder to comfor him, smile and said:

" Don't worry, everything's gonna be fine, you'll not mess things up"

Akari chucked a bit, received the glade from her childhood's friend, she look at him and say :

" Knowing you, there're a lot of posiblities that you'll mess this up... but don't worry, we won't let you do that"

Pouting Hikaru in black vest look at her...

"I say "Can you believe it?As we're lying on the couch?"The moment I can see it.Yes, yes, I can see it now."

the flash back...

"Akari, today I met a girl in Go's salon , she is same age as us but she is really good..."

" Sai, what do you mean her exitence is because of me...? i'm only 12...!"

" One day, Akira, i'll prove you that i'm your rival...if you continue chasing my shadom then one day the real me will catch up to you"

" Akira...i think...i...love...you..."

"Do you remember, we were sitting there by the water?You put your arm around me for the first time."

" Knock...knock...can we come in, Akira?" the voice of Hikaru's parents outside the room. The ex-Mejin's wife come and open the door for them. The brige is standing in front of a whole body mirror, white wedding kimono cover the face of one of the most fighting pros, whose face now is still not believed in her eyes... "Is this really happening? Oh God, if it's a dream, please don't wake me up" she close her eyes in a brief moments, try to bring herself back together " ...be calm, Akira, be calm..." but feeling her hands now sweating. Her soon-to-be-mother-in-law took her hand and hold it tightly, look at her and said:

" Thank you for loving my son, I...we.." she look at her husband, who smiling to Akira warmly "...we'd love to have you as our daughter-in-law...". Suddenly , Akira know, she just know, that everything is going to be alright. Her father embrace her, look deep into her eyes, telling her how much he pround of her and sorry for not spending more time for her, she return his embrace, whisper that he is the best father in the world, resting her head on his shouder in the embrace, she hear the sound of crying from her mother, they loosen their arms, her father hold a hand gentely to his wife, secretly told the woman who has walked with him in the path of life that this is time to let their daughter move out and has her own family with the person that he know, will take a good care to his precious princess

"Flash forward and we're taking on the world together,And there's a drawer of my things at your place.You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded,You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes."

the flash back

" Father, there's a kid at my age in salon today...he's defeated me..."

"Mother, can I ask you something...how do you know you are in love with father"

" Shindou Hikaru... I ...love ...you...too"

"You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter.You are the best thing that's ever been mine."

The 1st year of marriage is always be the hardest, like every other couples, those two Go pros met the troubles that they never think about before, Even since they met, they have always had shouting contents, whichs now, turning to daily things...spieces by spieces, inches by inches...slowly, the distance between the newly wed has become bigger and bigger...

"But we got bills to pay,We got nothing figured out,When it was hard to take,Yes, yes, this is what I thought about"

" Don't you remembere anymore ? The things we have made, the memories we have share...Hikaru, please don't forget..."

"Why are we turning out like this...Aghhh, I don't want to hurt you, I don't want to see your face fulled of sadness and griefs , we supposed to be happy together...Akira, please don't leave me"

"Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water?You put your arm around me for the first timeYou made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughterYou are the best thing that's ever been mine."

All those thinking , all those wishing... they never tell each other aboutthat, about how they fell, about what they want... they both too stubborn to make a 1st move, to say aloud their wishes...maybe...because they scary that the other don't feel the same,that maybe...they'll lose the one they love

"Do you remember all the city lights on the water?You saw me start to believe for the first timeYou made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter

You are the best thing that's ever been mine.

Oh, oh, oh"

Their busy job don't help the them to improve the situation, being the tittle holders means both of them have a lot of games to play, tutor classes to teach, tournaments to go... busy life make people forget their personal life but it also make their feel more and more lonely in between of the sea of people. Like a timing-bomb has been set , one day, the fight reached it's limitation and blow up them both. Akira feel her tears dropping down, waving her hands in the air, yelling at her husband:

"No,NO, I can't stand it anymore... I don't want to do this anymore... what is the point of marriage when you aren't here when I need you ?"

"And I remember that fightTwo-thirty AMAs everything was slipping right out of our handsI ran out crying and you followed me out into the streetBraced myself for the "Goodbye"'cause that's all I've ever knownThen you took me by surpriseYou said, "I'll never leave you alone."

Hikaru see it, he see the pains and loliness in those sharp eyes, but he is, too, feeling the same, what is the point of this marriage...why does it have to be this painful ? He heard the sound of the footstep running behind his back, he know she is gone, falling back in a chair, he close his eyes, try to hold back those tears... " ...Sai, please tell me what should I do now.." he whisper , he has already lost Sai-his teacher, his friend, he doesn't want to lose her , he doesn't... Open his eyes, he see the illution of the Heian ghost standing in front of him, serious eyes look at him, say : "...follow her, get her back..." and that's all he need, he rush to the door, run like a madman to the front door to see his love running there, about to open the door. He claps the opened door, hugging her hard, whisper into her ears :

" I love you, I love you a lots, Akira...please...stay with me..."

The silence seem to last forever, Akira stunned, here she is, in his arms, hearing those words. She close her eyes, try to think how to answer, should she say yes or shouldn't she ? She doesn't know, she really doesn't know...the memories come back like a flash … "Hikaru, I'll be here with you, I'll never ever go anywhere out.." those words she has said in the day she know about Sai, the day she know about his deepest secret...

"How can I leave ? I told you I'll be here always..."

You said, "I remember how we felt sitting by the waterAnd every time I look at you, it's like the first timeI fell in love with a careless man's careful daughterShe is the best thing that's ever been mine."

Time go by...

"Hikaru...I'm pregnanted..."

...sound of our dearest Hikaru fainted...

"Hikaru, Hikaru...HIKARU!" Akira shaking her husband's shouders

" I told you he'll pass out" Akari shook her head, she know her best friend all to well

"Well, at least he took it better than we thought" the mothers say, looking at each other, chucked and gigged. The fathers just sign, well , at least he doesn't panic or scream like his own father thought. That's a good sign, right?

"You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughterYou are the best thing that's ever been mine."

8 months later, at the hospital...

"Oh, Hikaru, stop going around like that, you are giving us a headchead" Waya shouting at his friend " ...she is the one who is giving birth now, not you!"

" Waya's right, it don't help if you're worrying that much, she's gonna fine, Hikaru" Isumi saying calmly

"...But..." Hikaru about to say something when they hear the cry, the baby's cry, his baby...He rush to the doctor who just step out of the door, holding his shouders by both his hands, spechless. The doctor is smiling with him, saying:

" Congratulation, the babies are lovely"

Then she turn around and walk toward the nurse who is calling her. Hikaru feel like suddenly, he isn't sure that he still in the ground anymore, like the gravity no longer exited, when he found his voice, he heard himself asking:

"...Did...did...she just say the... babies...?"

Next thing he know is dark covered the whole view, and the loud sound spear though the hallway of the hospital. Mitani just shook his head :

" And I think he was joking when he said he fainted when Akira told him she is pregnanted...'

The others just laugh,Isumi help Hikaru stand up and place him in the chair :

" That's predicted from our Honinbou, isn't it?"

(Hold on) Do you believe it?(Hold on) Gonna make it now.(Hold on) I can see it,(Yes, yes) I can see it now.

"Hikaru, what is the names you want to give to our kids?"

"...uhmm, I'm thinking about Sai...you?"

"I always want a daughter named Sakura..."

" So let's deceided that...Hello, Sai, hello, Sakura, i'm your father and she is your mother...Akira, they are smiling!"

(Hold on) I can see it,(Yes, yes) I can see it now.
