Summary: When both of your boyfriends are successful, you want to show that you are too.


Aoi felt something jab his back before squirming around. He felt it again and groaned as he moved to a different spot on the bed. Someone pulled the pillow from under his head and groaned. He heard someone laughing and moved around before being poked again. He moved around again before being poked, he opened his eyes and saw his daughter laughing.

"What's so funny?" He mumbled before burying his head in the mattress.

"Your hair is sticking up in funny places and moving around in the bed isn't really helping."

"Everyone doesn't have perfect hair while they're sleeping or when they wake up."

"Yeah, sleeping is the reason your hair is all messed up." She snickered.

He looked up from the mattress and looked at her.

"What are you implying?" He asked while sitting up.

"Just because this apartment is gorgeous doesn't mean these walls aren't thin. The only good thing about last night was that I couldn't go to sleep so I actually did my homework." She smiled as she threw the pillow at his shocked face and ran out of the room.

He jumped out of bed and ran to the living room where Kai was walking out with Himawari.

"Morning, breakfast is on the counter and Ruki left already."

"But-she said.... She- we should really talk about- ugh I'll just continue looking for places. I'll make sure the walls are thick. I'll make sure they're so thick a bulldozer wouldn't be able to break it." Aoi blushed as he walked to the kitchen.

Kai told their daughter to meet him by his car and walked to the kitchen.

"What's going on? What's up with your rosy cheeks?"

"Well our daughter pretty much told me she heard us having sex."

"And now I have to sit in a car with her. Hopefully she'll forget."

"I doubt it, I think it'll haunt her forever. I bet she'll have nightmares about it." Aoi laughed.

"Oh now it's funny."

"Yeah. She's not in the room so I don't feel embarrassed."

"Well while you're not feeling embarrassed, go look for a house with thick bricks for walls. And buy some earplugs while you're at it." Kai said as he walked out of the apartment with a face as red as a tomato.

Aoi looked at the food on the counter and decided not to eat it. He walked to the bedroom and turned on his laptop as he laid on the bed and turned on the tv. He looked at some more places that were for sale. Nice places with more than 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a big kitchen. He looked up from his laptop and looked at the time. Deciding it was time to get dressed, he took a long shower and dressed casually. He put on a jacket and boots, then left the apartment.

The autumn leaves blowing in the wind, filling him with joy. He took a taxi to the first house on his list. The outside of it was mostly white with a small amount of black and red. The rocks were also red, black, and the normal shade for a rock. The grass was a dark shade of green with no brown patches, the driveway was bigger than what they needed.

He walked inside and saw the man who was going to show him around.

"Are you Yuu?" The man asked.

"Yes."

"Alright, right this way." The man directed him to the kitchen.


~Himawari~

There was nothing that irritated her more than betrayal. And what Ichiro did was unforgivable. Not only did he prove himself to be unworthy of her time. But he's the reason she has to have three boys watch her and make sure no one does anything to harm her. He's the reason she's never had any friends. It's because of him, that she wakes up and doesn't even try to do her hair because she can't stand the sight of herself. He's the reason she's chosen to follow in her dad's footsteps and be in the mafia.

And with her luck, he's one of the guys who's protecting her. She made sure he knew he was unwanted and not appreciated with the glare she has been giving him since she saw him.

Now they were at lunch and he sat across from her, not even paying attention to the fact that she exists. But that didn't stop her from glaring. A tap on the shoulder did.

"Hi, I'm Kenichi and this is Hiroki and Ichiro." The boy with a scar across his left eyebrow said with a friendly smile as Hiroki nodded.

" Hi."

"You wanna hang out after school?"

She groaned and rubbed her temples.

"My dad didn't pay you to become friends with me did he?"

"No, just to protect you."

" What can you do that I can't? We're the same age!" She groaned in frustration.

"I've had training that you haven't had and I'm two years older than you. So is that a yes or a no?"

" Um, who's going?"

" Just us."

" Including Ichiro?"

" Yeah, I thought that was obvious." He chuckled.

" Well sorry I'm too wrapped up in my own problems to see the obvious." She snapped.

" Oh, um, sorry. You know I notice how you've been glaring at him. I don't think you like him."

" And you would be right."

" Then, he won't be around you. Just come with us."

" Oh he won't, I'm going to politely ask my dad to replace him and everything will be gravy."

" If you feel safer without him, then do it."

She smiled. "Alright. So where are we going?"

" Just an old abandoned amusement park." He smiled.

" Well, I've always thought it would be nice to die at an abandoned amusement park." She said with heavy sarcasm.

" It'll be fun, just stay close."

---------------------------------------------------------------

Ichiro, Kenichi, and Hiroki thought it would be smart for them to use the restroom while she does. Which seemed pretty stupid to her. But she went along with it.

She decided to go to her locker instead. She opened the locker and checked the contents inside to make sure nothing has changed. Someone grabbed the back of her uniform and slammed her against the other wall, then turned her around to face him and kneed her in the stomach. She looked up and saw Ichiro with a wicked smile on his face.

" Don't tell your fucked up father to get rid of me if you want to leave the school without internal bleeding. Understand?"

She couldn't process anything because of the pain she was feeling. He grabbed a handful of her hair and pulled her up.

" Do you understand?"

She nodded her head.

"Good. I was kind of hoping you would make this difficult though. But I'm sure you'll smart mouth me and I'll have to rough you up won't I?" He asked with a smile as he patted her cheek.

She glared at him tried to pull his hand out of her hair. He tightened his grip on her hair and pulled her close.

" You tell anyone what happen, I'll make your apartment glow brighter than last time I saw you."

He pushed her away and walked off. She tried to catch her breath as she walked back to her locker. Wondering what could be taking the guys so long.


~Aoi~

He left the last house and walked to the closest cafe. He looked around for some pastries and saw Tora talking to a rough looking guy. Deciding to ignore it, he continued looking for pastries until he was interrupted by Tora.

" What do you want?" Aoi snapped.

" Ouch, that hurt." Tora said putting a hand over his heart and wiping his hand under his eye as if he was wiping tears from his eyes.

"Good, now what do you want?"

" You'd think you would be nicer to me since I'm not interested in your boy-toy."

"He's my boyfriend, not boy-toy."

"Same diff. So, what have you been up to?"

" Successfully ignoring you until now."

Aoi said as he walked out of the cafe. Tora caught up to him.

" Why the harsh treatment?"

" Well you're the reason I was addicted to drugs."

" Yeah well if you weren't addicted to drugs, you probably wouldn't even be in the relationship you're in."

"The only difference is I would have gotten with them without most of the drama."

"I fail to believe that."

"Good thing I don't care about what you think."

Aoi walked into his apartment building and walked to the elevator, closing it before Tora could get to it. He walked in his apartment and saw Ruki sitting on the couch with a stack of paper on the coffee table. Aoi sat on the couch next to Ruki and turned on the tv.

"How was work?"

" Alright, I think Nao needs some time off."

" He does."

" How did the houses look?"

"They were alright. I liked the second house better."

" What did you like about the second house?"

" The large backyard, the trees around it, the big rooms and big bathrooms. That house was great."

" Good, we'll go check it out tomorrow."

"Good. Hey, we should be careful when our daughter is here."

"What do you mean when she's here? She's here every night."

"And last night she heard us. I want to prevent that type of embarrassment so we're gonna have to try to help her make friends."

Ruki buried his head in his hands.

" Everyone has some type of experience like that, either they hear it or they walk in. It's normal."

"True but it-"

"Listen, I'm trying to finish some paperwork so can you do something somewhere else?" He asked as he lifted his head and continued working.

Aoi didn't say anything as he grabbed his keys and left the apartment. Heading toward the elevator without looking, he bumped into Kai.

" Sorry." They said simultaneously.

"You should pay attention to where you're going." Kai said as he took his scarf from around his neck and wrapped around Aoi's neck.

"I know, but I just really wanted to go for a walk."

"Alright, let's go for a walk."

They got on the elevator and huddled together, trying to stay away from the man who had bags filled with bloody teeth and glue. When the doors opened on the first floor they practically ran out of the elevator.

"What's with the long face?" Kai asked as they walked outside of the building.

"I'm being annoying and I'm over reacting again."

"I'm sure it's nothing."

"But it doesn't feel like nothing. It feels like he puts his work before me. We have boring conversations and the passion is gone. I felt like we were more of a couple when Uruha was alive."

" So you think he doesn't have feelings for you, which is normal. He's being over worked so he's not gonna come home ready to talk to you and completely ignore his responsibilities."

" But you have time to talk to me and you have more responsibilities. If you make one tiny mistake or if you neglect something, everything could crumble and we'd have people out to kill us."

" That's because Ruki and I deal with stress differently."

" If only he dealt with it like you do."

"Maybe he'll deal with it better in a couple of years."

" It won't happen. You're gonna call me crazy, but I think Uruha showered me with more love than Ruki does."

Kai grabbed his shoulders and stopped them.

"He didn't shower you with love. He was obsessed and probably had borderline personality disorder. He never loved you."

" But at least it felt like he did."

"He put a tracker inside of you. That's not love."

" I know!"

" Then why are we even having this conversation?"

"Because I'm having doubts." He whispered.

"Then how about we talk about it."

"No because he'll get irritated."

"Well he'll just have to be irritated. I don't want you feeling like this."

"Fine, let's get it over with now."

They started walking back to the apartment building.

"Hey, where's Hima?"

" She's hanging out with her body guards."

"Did you pay them to hang out with her?"

"Nope."

"Good."

Kai's phone rang and he looked at the screen and mouthed 'sorry' as he took the call. Aoi motioned for him to go inside but he shook his head. Aoi gave him a small push and walked away from the building.

He really didn't want to have this conversation because he knows how Ruki will react. He saw Tora walking his way and tried to avoid him, but he ended up right in front of him.

"Came back to continue the conversation?"

"No, I just wanted to go out for a walk."

"Alright, let's go for a walk."

"I don't want to walk with you."

"Aww why not?"

" Why are you so interested in me now?"

"I'm not interested in you at all. I just think you'll be a great business partner."

"I'm not interested."

"You don't even know what for."

" The last time you had something for me, I ended up addicted to it. So sorry for not giving a rats ass for what you have now."

"It's not what I have. It's what we have the potential to do."

" I'm not interested."

" You don't even know what it is!"

" And I don't care."

"Fine, just think about it before you give me your final answer."

"I'll think about it."

"Take your time."

Tora put a card in his hand and walked away. He looked at the card in his hand and at Kai who was walking towards him.

"What's he up to?" He nodded in Tora's direction.

" Nothing really."

"Great now let's go."

They made their way to the apartment and saw Hima watching tv and typing on her laptop. They walked in the bedroom and saw Ruki changing into his pajamas. Kai took his jacket off and sat on one side of the bed as Aoi sat on the other side.

"Ruki, we need to talk."

"About what?"

"I'll make some tea." Aoi said as he walked out the room. Kai grabbed his arm and dragged him back in the room and closed the door.

"We're going to talk about this because in order for us to work, we have to be on the same page. Now speak."

"How about you go first."

"What's the topic?" Ruki asked.

"Aoi feels like this relationship isn't going as he planned and now he's chickening out of having this conversation."

Ruki walked over to them and moved some hair out of Aoi's face.

"I'm just stressed from work. As soon as the paperwork decrease I'll be myself again."

"See, it's not you. So relax while I cook dinner. Maybe you should go to a spa tomorrow." Kai said as he walked out.

" I'll che-"

"I'll do it, you're over working yourself. Go watch tv with Hima." Aoi interrupted.

Ruki smiled and walked out of the room. Aoi sat on the bed and turned on his laptop. Seeing a message pop up on the screen.

'Call me when you make up your mind.' :Tora

Aoi could only smirk at his stupidity.

AN: Thanks to my awesome buddy who helped me with the names of the guards. The names I picked were horrible and everyone would have hated them.
