CHAPTER ONE~Beneath The Starry Night

At night, in the city park area.
--Hoshino City Park--

Kamenashi Kazuya walks his feet to nowhere particular. He’s been walking around the large park for fifteen minutes, trying to empty his mind. From his hand, one crinkle paper with a ball-like shape falls slowly and rolled away before it finally lost in the dark of the night.

“Damn it” he curses faintly. He sits on one of the bench and stares at the starry night. Right now, he feels very depressed. That folded paper was actually the result of the try-out test that he took a few times a go. His home teacher’s words resounded in his ears, “Your mark is not good enough to go your proposed university, Kamenashi.”

At this moment, Kame really feels sick about everything. He hates it when his parents keep forcing him to studying and studying. His father always stresses him to get into that famous university, while his mother only serves to make him feel guilty for not being able to fulfill their wishes. To be honest, Kame doesn’t want to go to that university at all. He’s completely not interested to get in to the medical school like his father wants him to.

Kame always dream to be an idol ever since he could remember. He likes to sing and dance. Unfortunately, there’s no way he’s going to obtain his dream. As the only son of a famous political, his father would never let his son to get into the glamorous world. 

“The son of Kamenashi will have to go into a reasonable study and step into the society with a steady position.” That is what his father always say, and Kame just can’t say no.

“Shit! Why am I trapped in this kind of situation?!” He screams in distress. “Aaaaarggghhh…!!!” 

Kame keeps sitting there with a dark expression. It’s almost been an hour had he sits without even making any move, not realizing someone is walking to his direction.

“Is this yours?”
Kame snaps and lifts up his face. A boy is standing in front of him, showing him the folded paper he’d thrown away before. That boy has a handsome face with a childlike aura, his longish hair colored in soft brown. His pair of eye stares at Kame innocently with a little naughty smile. Wearing a black shirt with a dark denim jacket and brown jeans, the boy looks mature and attractive. 

“Is this yours?” The boy repeats his question when there’s still no reply from Kame. 
Kame nods stiffly and accepts that folded paper without a word. The boy then throws himself beside Kame and asks, “Mind if I smoke?”

Kame shakes his head. The boy lit his smoke. “Let me guess, you’re sick with your exam. So did I.” 
Still no word.

“Don’t be so suspicious.” The boy chuckes, “I happen to be your high school alumni. I’m sorry but I took a peek on that paper. My name is Akanishi Jin. Yours?”

“…Kazuya. Kamenashi Kazuya.”
“Hmm, can I call you Kazuya-kun?”
“Good. You can call me Jin then.”

Kame scrutinizes Jin secretly. His smoking figure looks masculine, with a broad shoulder and muscular body. This is the son his father been dreaming to have. He knows his father’s disappointed look at his lean body and pretty girl-like face.

“Hey, is Rindou-sensei still a health teacher?” Jin suddenly turns to face him. Kame is astonished to see the soft mist that comes out Jin’s lip. Those lips that wait for his answer looks wet and red…

Kame snaps. “No. Rindou-sensei quit last year to get married.”
“Too bad.” Jin once again shows his teasing smile, “And I used to have a crush on her.”
“You’re kidding me.”
“Why not? She’s very pretty in her white coat, don’t you think?”

Kame only smiles to hear Jin’s answer. From their light conversation just now, he can starts to guess Jin’s personality. Cheerful, confident, carefree and… playboy. It shows from his body language and the way he talks about woman.

“Hey, I know that look” Jin accused Kame, “You must think that I’m a playboy.”
“You are.”
“Well let me tell you something. I will be serious with one person when I find the right one.”
“Tell that to the girls.”
“And if I say I’m not into girls?”

Kame’s smile falters. He stares at Jin incredulously. Jin’s face looks so serious… until the corner of his lips widen and he laugh heartily. “I’m joking, baka.” Jin holds his stomach.

A very upset Kame stands up and grabs his bag, “I’m going home.”
“Hey, wait up.” Jin pulls Kame’s hand, “Just wanna tell you, if you want to see me again, I’ll be in this park every night.”
“Let go of my hand.”
“If you need any help, just tell me. I’m serious. I might not look like one, but I’m actually clever at high school.”
“Let go.”
Jin lets Kame’s hand go and waves at him with a teasing gesture, “Jyaa naa…”

--Kamenashi’s Residence--

The house is already dark when Kame open the front door. The alley is very quiet. Kame looks at his watch which shows him that it’s already 11 pm. Without a word, Kame step on the stairs headed to his room in the second floor.

Kame halts his step and finds his mother in the first step of the stair. 
“Do you want some dinner?”
His mother tries to be nice, but Kame shakes his head, “I already have mine.” 
“Why do you go home this late?”
“Studying.” Kame lies, “In the library. I lost track of time until the librarian made me to leave.”

His mother’s face looks satisfied to hear his answer. Kame feels sick to his stomach. Yeah, study. Whatever I do, if I say that I’m studying, they’re going to feel happy and satisfied. Study, study, study… I’m not a robot programmed to keep studying!

“How’s your test result?”
“We’ll have it next week.” Kame lies again, “Mom, I’m going to my room to rest.”

Without looking back, Kame goes upstairs and closes the door. After changing his cloths and hang his uniform, he throws himself to the bed and lays down, staring at his room’s ceiling.

I hate all these.

Slowly, his eyes feel sleepy. Kame closes them and feel asleep…

--The Next Day, Hoshino Gakuen--

Kame is walking to his class when he meets Miura-sensei in the alley, “Kamenashi-kun, can you help me seize a few things in the data room?”

To be honest, Kame feels like declining her request. But to see how the nice old Miura-sensei stares at him with a pleading look, Kame finally nods. He follows Miura-sensei to the data room and helps her to take a few data stored in the upper drawer. 

Then Kame’s eyes accidentally meet with a piece of old school paper. Miura-sensei glances at the headline. “That’s Akanishi Jin. He graduated 2 years ago.” Miura-sensei informs Kame, “Like its written there, he’s the head-student in his time.”
“Is he that smart?” mutter Kame, but can be heard clearly by Miura-sensei, “Well, he’s very smart. His IQ is 185 and he always be number one without many effort.”
“His look is deceiving ne? Actually some teachers didn’t approve him to be the head-student because he loves to do anything as he pleases and had a bad reputation with woman… But then, he’s very potential.”

“Bad reputation… you mean he’s a playboy?”
“Indeed. He was very popular.”

Kame drowned into a deep thought. He remembers what Jin said last night, “If you need any help, just tell me. I’m serious. I might not look like one, but I’m actually clever at high school.”

So that what he meant? Kame sighs to feel the unfairness of this world. Having 185 IQ and become number one without effort? Damn, he’s not kidding when he said it.

--At night, Hoshino City Park--

Akanishi Jin is witting on the park swinger when he realizes Kame’s figure standing in front of him. Jin smiles, “You really come, Kazuya-kun.”
“I know who you really are.”
“That fast?” Jin’s eyes widen and he laughs. Kame bows deeply to Jin, “Please, teach me.”
“Yup, da-me,” Jin shakes his head, “Why should I teach you? There’s no benefit for me.”
“But… didn’t you say that if I need your help, I just need to ask?”
“I did say that,” Jin looks at Kame in a mischievous stare, “But I never said that say yes.”

Kame’s face reddens in anger and shame. Without further ado he turns around and walks away. “I’m going!”
“Hey, wait up.”
Kame stops, “What?”
“I never said I’ll say no either, I just have one condition.”
Kame turns around slowly and walks to Jin’s direction until they’re just one step away. “What is it?”

Jin laughs to hear Kame’s cold and defensive tone. “Don’t be too scared, okay?” Jin stands up and pats his shoulder, “Just one condition… It won’t be hard and won’t do you any harm.”

“I can’t tell you now.”
“On time, I’ll collect the payment.” Jin stares at Kame’s eyes, narrowed in suspicion. “And I told you it won’t be hard or do you any harm! So stop staring at me like that.”

Kame only huffs to hear Jin’s words.

“Okay-okay,” Jin pulls Kame to sit next to him on the bench. “Starting tomorrow we’ll arrange where to meet. Don’t have to be at night, noon is alright too. You’re aiming to get into Medical major at Johnny University right?”

“How do you… Oh right, you read my test result that night.”

So they exchange their mobile number and keep it in the phonebook. Jin walks away, “Call me tomorrow ne… Jyaaa naa.”

Kame stares at Jin’s sturdy and strong back until he disappears in the dark of the night. Then he turns on his phone and looks at a line of numbers that is Jin’s phone number. Kame sighs, “Is this a correct decision? I feel like trapped in one unknown game… Like making a deal with someone dangerous.”

And what kind of condition that Jin meant? Not hard, no harm but can’t be told now…

he is one of my friend who always reads my fics~~
his grammar is good, so i often ask him to check my fics before.
*he read all of the yaoi's smut in poker face and told me 'this is good, love it...' and sometimes 'write more smut! make it hotter!'
honestly, he loves my charades so much XDXDXD
hehehehe, did u believe that??

he didn't say anything, just 'it's not you who translate this fic into english rite?'
and when i asked how he knew, he said 'her way of vocab is kinda different with your usual chosen vocab, just somehow different and i knew it'
