“Ah, not those poker face again.” Kaito
stared at the CEO of Souma Corp, Daisuke which the next head of the company and
his family when his father, the current head will retire. Kaito has been
working under them and right now as personal assistant for Daisuke. Kaito has
been the only one that Daisuke trusted the most.
Daisuke was taken a bit and he straightened
his back, “Apologizes.”
Kaito knew, Daisuke always kept that cool
and heartless façade even though when they’re not in the company. However, this
time looks different. Something bothered him.
“Is there anything that bothered you
lately? You know I can help you.”
“No, it’s nothing. I am completely fine.”
“Fine? I don’t see that way,
Daisuke raised his head to look at his
assistant. Even though he was his assistant, there are times where they were
talking each other like friends and Daisuke don’t deny that he was glad for his
companion. He was glad when the waiter they were calling for arrived and took
their orders. After the waiter dismissed and left them, Daisuke hoped that
Kaito didn’t ask the question again but damn, he did.
“Don’t run away. You know that you can talk
everything to me.” Kaito raised his eyebrow, waiting for his friend to spoke.
Daisuke knew that he can’t run away anymore, not when Kaito determined to make
him answer his question.
“Father.. arrange me into a marriage.”
Daisuke stared at his friend, expecting to
see a surprise face on Kaito and he did have that. Kaito’s mouth hanged open as
his eyes widen.
“S-Seriously? President really turn you
into an arrange marriage?”
“Yeah, and mother said that our family knew
my bride-to-be’s family for a long time. I suspected that I might know them too
but no one came into my mind who is the girl that would..”
Kaito’s mouth keeps hanging open and closed
it when he realized he opened them for a long time. Still feels shock from the
news; he tried to think an answer how to talk nicely to Daisuke about this. He
might don’t have any clue how one will be in his situation but from his expression,
he at least knew that his friend seemed frustrated.
Their conversation cut off when the
waitress brought their orders and put the food on the table before leaving them
with a smile. Daisuke didn’t care about it and paid attention to his food.
Kaito noticed the waitress’s eyes were on Daisuke but too bad, she was ignored.
He knew, Daisuke isn’t type to chase the
girl or care about their flirt. He always ignores them.
“Maybe I should run away..”
“..huh? Don’t be dumb, go see the girl and
don’t judge by first look. Look her real self, and then decide by yourself. I
don’t think your parents would be happy to make you marry to someone that won’t
make you happy-“
“THE THING IS, I AM UNHAPPY WITH THIS
SUDDEN CASE ON ME!”
All the eyes were on them when Daisuke shout
out so loud. Kaito frowned and tried to calm his friend while apologizing to
everyone for disturbing them. When he sensed Daisuke calmed down, he sighed.
Kaito shook his head and reached to pat his friend’s shoulder, “Look, I never
gotten myself into something like that but I advise you; think carefully before
do anything. Don’t be that American where they act before think!”
End the conversation with a laugh, Daisuke
blinked his eyes and smiled a bit. He’s right. He shouldn’t feel burdened just
by the news if he still didn’t meet the said-girl yet. He was glad he talked
about this to Kaito. If not, maybe he already ran away and goes start a new
life out there.
Kaito heard it and smiled, “Anytime.”
Daisuke decided to wait outside as he dislikes
the staring he got whenever he moves in the café. It’s tiring him when the
girls see after his look, not his personality. As he pushed the door without
seeing what was behind the door, he heard a yelp from the other side. Quickly,
he pushed slowly to make sure the person he bumped onto with the door didn’t
being pushed again by him and went to her side.
“Are you alright?” He knelt down beside
her. ”I apologize for my clumsiness, miss. I didn’t notice you and it’s my
fault to be blame.”
His body froze; amber eyes stared at the
person that he bumped onto. He didn’t knew why he couldn’t moving and why did
he was staring.. at her? He even couldn’t do anything when the girl answered
she was fine and leave him behind. Even when Kaito already paid their lunch and
nudged his shoulder to ask what’s wrong with him, Daisuke couldn’t find his
words and asked for Kaito to just quickly get ready to work back without
answering his friend’s question; leaving Kaito with confusion on his face.
