Dream (Anna’s POV) (YuriAnnin)
My name is Iriyama Anna, I’m from a rich family. My father is a famous business.
Today he wanted me to meet his co-worker’s family. I didn’t know why but I accepted. We arrived in front of an impressive house. They were also rich I guessed. My father rang at the door and a girl opened it. She seemed to have the same age as me. She simply looked at us without talking. My father’s co-worker came toward us to greet us.
“I’m Wataru Kizaki. You’re supposed to be Anna, right?” He asked with a smile.
It looked like he knew me.
“Yes.” I answered simply, bowing a bit.
“It’s my son Tatsuya and my daughter Yuria.” They bowed in front of me and my father. “It’s dinnertime, come on!” He said, walking toward the dining room.
I was sitting next to Tatsuya. He was a tall boy with glasses. I didn’t talk, feeling a bit uncomfortable.
“Anna can stay here for the night.” I raised suddenly my head toward my father.
“Fine, her clothes are in the car.” He answered simply.
What? Why? What was that? I didn’t understand. My father couldn’t decide that without talking to me. Why did he decide?
“Sorry, but why I need to stay?” I asked, stunned.
“To know your fiancé.” My father’s co-worker said with a grin.
Eh?! Wait! What?! That’s why my father asked me to come with him. It’s a bad dream, right? It couldn’t be true.
“What?” I said, looking at my father.
It wasn’t my father’s style. He was always kind to me.
“It’s for the business.” He only told me.
I couldn’t answer. I didn’t talk anymore. I kept quiet, trying to understand how it could happen. After the dinner, my father left me. I stayed close to the window, looking at him. I heard a footstep coming toward me. I turned around to see who it was.
“Ah. Kizaki-san.” I said without a smile.
“You can call me Tatsuya, I’m your boyfriend now.” He answered, walking closer to me.
He seemed to be… please, I want to wake up…
“Kiss me.” He said suddenly.
Never! I didn’t know him, I didn’t care about this guy.
“No, it’s just for business. I’m not your girlfriend.”
“But, you’re a cute girl and I’m a lonely boy.” He said, stroking my cheek slowly.
I wanted him to stop. So I gave him a little peck on his lips. I hope it will be enough. I couldn’t believe that… It wasn’t real…
“Leave me now.” I said, looking through the window again.
“I-” He started speaking.
“Leave her.” A female voice interrupted him.
I wanted to see her but she disappeared before.
“Honey… wake up…” I heard a familiar voice.
I opened my eyes slowly. I saw my boyfriend, Ichiro. So, it was just a bad dream… I let out a reviled sigh.
“Are you okay?” He asked me in a concerned tone.
I nodded and left my bed. Then, we took our breakfast, as usual. We had been together for two years.
“Saturday, we have a dinner to my family’s house.” He told me without looking at me.
He was a rich boy, I knew nothing about his family. I never met them. On the contrary, he knew mine and mostly my father. I wanted to show my happiness, but this dream really troubled me.
“Saturday!? It’s tomorrow.” I said, raising my head toward my boyfriend.
“You’re right. Don’t worry, you’re a princess.” He said with a wink.
I started to be stressed. I wasn’t ready, it was too soon. But I remained quiet, I didn’t want to hurt him.
“Do you want to go out today?” He asked.
“I need to buy a few things for tomorrow.” I answered, taking my bag.
“Fine.” He said, giving me a light kiss.
I left him. This dinner really stressed me. In fact, I just needed to get some fresh air. I reached the limousine and sat. I let out a light sigh. Okay, stop being stressed, everything will be all right.
“Where you want to go, miss?” My steward asked.
I visited a lot of shop and a found a new beautiful dress. My mind was full of questions. I remembered he had a young sister. I didn’t know how old she was.
I started walking toward the limousine, but a voice interrupted me.
“Sorry, you lost that.” She said, handing my purse.
I took it and looked at her, confused. It was the girl from my dream. Well, she really looked like her.
“Thanks…” I answered with a quiet voice and she left me without speaking more.
I went back home. Could that really happen?
“Are you ready for tomorrow?” My boyfriend teased me, interrupting my thought.
“Stop it…” I said, pouting.
“Don’t be worried, princess.”
I was. Of course I was. I was my first meeting with his family.
“It’s easy for you…”
He smiled at me and gave me a kiss on my forehead. I took a book and started reading but I wasn’t concentrated. I couldn’t stop thinking about the girl and especially because I saw her today.
It was the D-day. We rang at the door and we waited for someone to open it. I looked around, trying to relax.
“Oh Anna, you’re too stressed.”
“I’m sorry but-” My boyfriend interrupted me, raising my chin.
My cheeks flushed. He wanted to kiss me but the door was opened by someone. I quickly made him released me, embarrassed.
“Sir, if you want to go inside.” The old man said simply.
“My son! It’s been a long time.” My boyfriend’s father said, patting his shoulder.
Wow. He surprised me while yelling at Ichiro.
“You’re Anna, right?”
“Nice to meet you.” I answered with a smile.
I tried to stay calm and I noticed a young woman coming toward us.
“I’m Yuria.” She said simply.
It was really the girl from my dream. It felt very weird.
“I know you, you’re the girl who lost her purse.” She said with a little smile.
Why did she mention it? It was not necessary. It was… embarrassing.
“Yes it was me. I’m Anna, nice to meet you.”
We had a good time. My boyfriend’s family was really nice, even though his sister didn’t speak too much. His father said that he knew mine. I didn’t know about that, they were friends. Ichiro said he would like us to see more often his family. I answered him it was okay.
A few weeks passed since our first dinner with them. Today, I went out to see one on my friends. I walked peacefully when I heard something in a little street.
“Don’t speak to me like that, brat!”
I recognized her voice. I looked in the street, distinguishing two young girls.
“Oh, Do I disturb you… Old dear?” The second girl answered, grabbing the collar of her rival.
“What did you say-” She started, but the girl interrupted her with a punch.
Seriously… They were fighting. I couldn’t let them do that.
“Stop it now!” I said, walking towards them.
The second girl ran away, leaving Yuria alone with me.
“Yuria…Are you okay?” I asked, looking at her, worried.
Her lips were injured. I took a tissue and I wiped the blood. Suddenly I felt my cheeks becoming red and hot. She was staring at me softly. I thought she will be more aggressive.
“I’m fine.” She snapped coldly.
Okay. She was really cold.
“You shouldn’t fight like a kid.” I told her but she pushed my hand.
“Tsk… You’re not my mother.”
“But I-” She left me without I could answer.
I stayed bewildered. My heart pounded faster when she looked at me. What was wrong with me?
I met my friend and we spent the afternoon together. Then, I went back home. Ichiro was waiting for me.
“I saw your sister today.” I told him, sitting on the sofa.
“Is she okay?” I was a little stunned by his question.
What did he ask me? Did Yuria have troubles?
“She was a yankee but she’s not a student anymore. She needs to stop fighting.” He started. “I tried to stop her a few times, but… She can’t help it.”
I stayed quiet some seconds after his words. Well, he was right. His sister seemed to be pretty stubborn.
“I want to help her.” I said seriously.
“Good luck.” He said with a teasing smile.
I will need it, really.
I saw Yuria a few times since the last day. She came to apologize. I didn’t know if we were friends but I was strangely glad to see her, she was a nice girl. She still fought. I wanted to help her, but I didn’t know how. I asked her to stop but she didn’t do it. It made me a bit mad. She told me she had something to do and she went home earlier. I thought she will fight again, so I followed her. There were just Yuria and another girl. They started-
“Excuse-me.” A young man interrupted my… observation. “Can you help me? I’m lost…”
Bad timing. I tried to not be nervous and answered him.
“Where do you want to go?” I asked in a hurry.
“I wanted to see the Tokyo Tower, but I don’t have a battery on my phone…”
Good. I really had the time to helping a guy who was lost in my city. I showed him the way with my phone and he left me. I turned around, looking for Yuria, she wasn’t in the street anymore. I walked in slowly until I heard a cough. She was leaning against the wall, the blood running from her lips again.
“Yuria?! What happened?” I asked, coming to her.
“Nothing.” She looked at me. “Why are you here? Every time that I lose.” She mumbled her last sentence.
She acted as if I bothered her. I guessed I was disturbing her. She seemed to hate me when we talked about her fights. I let out a sigh.
“I-I… Just… I’ll help you-” I told her but she started standing up, grabbing my arms.
“I wanted to see you more closely.” She said softly. “I want to…” She put her hands on my collar, pulling me closer.
“Y-Yuria… S-Stop it…” I started to say.
She pulled me closer. Our nose touched. My heart pounded really fast. I could smell her pleasurable scent. Her breath against my pink lips.
It was wrong. I was her brother’s girlfriend. She couldn’t… we couldn’t.
“I know, but… I can’t help it…”
Finally, our lips met. It was a gentle kiss, her lips were so soft. I wanted to push her but I gave up and kissed her back. After a few seconds, I put my two hands on her shoulders and pushed her away.
“D-Don’t do it again…” I said, most stunned that angry.
“I’m sorry, it was a mistake…” She left me.
Why did I reject her earlier? Why did I kiss her back? I couldn’t understand myself. Did she love me? No. It was impossible.
I knew I will see her again. I hoped she will not talk about the accident.
“Don’t forget, we’re going to my family’s house.”
“That’s right… Will your sister be there?” I asked a little worried.
I couldn’t forget. That was stuck in my mind.
“Yes, why?” My boyfriend asked surprised.
“I just want to know.” I said with a fake smile.
I just didn’t want to see her. But I couldn’t show at Ichiro that was bothering me. I needed to act as if everything was all right.
I was next to Ichiro’s mother. She was really kind, we talked a lot. A few minutes after, Yuria joined us. It was bad, I turned red. Yuria looked at me and put her hand on my forehead.
“Are you okay Anna? Your cheeks are really red.” She said simply.
“Y-yeah, I’m fine.” I answered a little annoyed.
She smiled at me, as if nothing happened and then she left us. Did she make fun of me? Why did she act like that?
“She’s right, you’re red.” Yuria’s mother said with an amused smile.
“It’s nothing, don’t worry.”
“I’m glad that you are friend with Yuria.” She said with the same smile.
“Why?” I asked simply.
It seemed we weren’t friends anymore. It hurt me. I liked Yuria, she was… her. I liked the way she was. Wait. Why?
“She was always alone. In school, she didn’t have any friends, so she fought with her classmates. Since she knew you, she smiles. It was a long time that I didn’t see her smile. Don’t leave her alone, I don’t want to see my daughter upset anymore.”
I nodded with a fake smile. So, that was why. I wanted to protect her. But it seemed to be impossible.
Yuria teased me sometimes. I didn’t know if I hated her or something else. I didn’t like that she made fun of me. I was ready to go, I waited for Ichiro because he was talking with his father.
“Anna.” I heard a familiar voice.
“Yuria, what’s-” She grabbed my arm and pulled me toward a quiet and empty place.
“Yuria! What’s wrong with you?” I almost yelled.
Why did she do that?
“I saw you… In my dream.” She said, looking down. “That’s really strange you know.”
I stayed quiet and dumbfounded. She what? Really? It was… so strange.
“Thanks for your help. I know, I’m not a student anymore. I should stop fighting. But I love fighting…” She continued. “Can we stay friends?” She asked suddenly.
Friend? So, the kiss had no meaning. Oh. Fine, I guessed. It was better for both of us.
“We can.” I answered simply.
I thought I could leave but her question stopped me.
“Do you love Ichiro?”
I didn’t know. Her kiss disturbed me. The kiss without meaning. It was stupid.
“Of course I love him.”
More the days passed, less I loved him. It was as if I avoided him, I spent more time with his sister. She made my heart pound so fast. I liked her presence more than my… boyfriend. I was already with a boy and she was a girl… I just was lost in my feelings. What should I do? I wanted to be with her but I couldn’t.
“I’m glad for you Anna.” My father told me.
“Why?” I asked, surprised.
“You’re getting married.” He said with a broad grin, but mine dropped suddenly.
Since when? I never talked about it with Ichiro. Did he decided it by himself?
“I talked with Ichiro’s father.” I stayed quiet, starting at him. “You seem a bit stunned about the good news. You should go for a walk now.” He said with the same smile.
I left my family’s house. I was completely stunned, it was as if I lost the control of my own life. I took my phone and called Yuria. I needed to see her.
‘Yuria… Can we… meet?’ My voice cracked a bit.
‘Yeah, where are you?’
‘The place where we kissed…’
‘I’m coming.’ She hanged up.
Why? How everything could happen? I didn’t understand. My life was perfect and now everything was messing up.
“Anna…” Yuria said softly while the tears couldn’t stop flowing on my cheeks.
I wasn’t able to speak. I just stared at her, crying. She pulled me in her warm arms. I squeezed her tightly. I felt her hand stroking slowly my hair. Suddenly, it started raining.
“Come with me.” She said, grabbing my hand and pulling me to a flat.
We went inside and she closed the door behind us. Our hair were damp. She looked cute, the water running along her shoulders. I heard my phone ringing.
“My father…” I said with the same cracked voice.
Yuria came closer to me and took it. I looked at her surprised.
‘She’s with me.’
‘Yeah, don’t worry.’
‘Fine. Bye.’ She hanged up and gave me my phone back.
“You can stay with me if you want…” She said with a little smile.
“Thanks…” I started, looking down.
I needed to tell her. I was a bit afraid about it. I didn’t know how she will react.
“Hm?” She looked at me, waiting for me. “What happens?” She asked, sitting next to me.
“…And me… We will be married…”
“It’s a good news.” She said, putting her hand on my shoulder without a smile.
It wasn’t true. I didn’t want to marry him. I… I didn’t love him anymore. But she didn’t seem really glad.
“Aren’t you happy for us?” I said surprised.
“Of course. But like you cried, I thought that you broke up. It’s really a good news.” She said with a fake smile.
I could easily recognize it, her fake smile. I stood up and the tears started flowing again. So, the kiss really had no meaning. Deep down, I hoped her to love me.
“I hate you!” I screamed while she was looking at me dumbfounded. “You’re hurting me so much.”
I didn’t know what I needed to do. Was it okay to yell at her? She didn’t do something wrong after all.
“It’s a misunderstanding…” She mumbled.
“Fine! Don’t play with my feelings anymore.” I said while taking my bag and going toward the door.
“I never played…” She mumbled.
I stopped me and turned around toward her. Was it true? Didn’t I understand? Her face was completely red. I looked at her eyes, she was about to cry.
“Yuria…” She stood up and walked to me.
I didn’t expect her to slap me. It was hurt. But, did I deserve it? I guessed…
“Please… Don’t leave me alone…” She said, gripping my shoulders and putting her head on my chest.
She cried so hard that the top of my dress became moist. I felt relieved.
“It was painful, you know.” I said, stroking her back to calm her.
I couldn’t help it, I was not mad anymore. I just wanted her to stop crying.
“I’m sorry…” She answered, putting her lips on my red cheek. “Is it better now?” She blushed badly.
She avoided my gaze. I wiped the tears on her cheeks with my hand. She looked so cute. I didn’t think she could be like this. She showed me another side of her personality.
I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her closer until our lips met. I could feel her soft lips again. She put her arms around my neck and brought her body closer to deepen the kiss. The sound of kisses filled the flat. I enjoyed to play with her lips. A few minutes later, we parted away to breathe. I looked into her beautiful eyes.
“Now, it’s better.” I said with a smile.
“I love you Anna.” She said, releasing my neck.
I couldn’t answer. I loved her. But I was already with someone. I wanted to tell these words but I felt it wasn’t the right time.
“You know, you’re cheating on my brother.” She said, pouting.
She was right. He was my future husband. I didn’t know what to say and started to be panicked.
“I-I… It’s…” I blushed so badly and the words didn’t want to come out. “S-Sorry… Are you-” She stopped me, putting her finger on my lips.
“I’m hungry.” She said and left me here, stunned.
I stayed quiet. We ate peacefully, I cooked the meal. I also learnt that Yuria was a bad cook. I was worried, I needed to take a decision. After the meal, I took my phone and sent a text at my boyfriend.
I sleep at your sister’s house.
Fine. Good night
I love you J
“Take my bed, I’ll sleep on the sofa.” Yuria said, bringing a cover to the living room.
“Don’t you have a guest room?” I asked, stunned.
“No, I don’t need it.” She answered simply. “I’ll take a shower. Good night.” She kissed my forehead.
“Good night.” I left her toward the room.
My mind was still full of worries. I couldn’t sleep. So, I stood up and walked to the main room. I guessed it was pretty late. But I was a bit selfish at that very moment.
“Yuria…?” I said softly.
“Hm?” She answered half asleep.
“Can you… sleep with me?” I asked, blushing.
“Yeah…” She stood up and walked toward me slowly.
She grabbed my hand and we went into her room. Once we were on the bed, I hugged her from behind and fell asleep in the aroma of Yuria’s shampoo.
I left Yuria early, I wanted to talk with my boyfriend. I just left a note with my explanation. I knew I will hurt him… or her.
“Good morning princess. Do you have a nice sleep?”
“Good morning. Yes. We need to talk…” I said coldly.
It wasn’t me. But I couldn’t hold it. I needed to tell him.
“About the wedding?” He asked with a bright smile.
“Why didn’t you ask me?” I said angrily.
I was angry. It was an important thing. We couldn’t announce it like he did.
“Oh… Because, our fathers want-”
I didn’t care about his explanation.
“Let’s break up.” I interrupted him.
“What?” He yelled.
“I’m sorry… I don’t love you anymore…” He stayed quiet. “I don’t want to hurt you… It’s better for both to break up.”
It was over.
“Did you find someone else?”
I didn’t want to answer. I couldn’t tell him.
“I’ll come back later to take my stuff. Sorry.”
I was sure now. I didn’t love him anymore. I didn’t cry and I felt nothing of painful in my chest. It was proof, right?
I reached Yuria’s flat. I took a deep breath, ready to tell her. I rang at the door, waiting. The door opened slowly, I discovered Yuria, looking at me without her cute smile.
Suddenly, she hugged me tightly. I wasn’t ready.
“Don’t leave me… Please…” She said with a cracked voice.
I couldn’t leave her. It will kill me if I did it.
“I love you.” I said softly.
“Please… Even if you don’t break up…” She continued.
“Do you hear me?” I asked, pushing her gently. “I love you. I broke up with your brother.”
She was stunned but all I wanted it was to be with her. I pulled her closer, putting my hands on her cheeks. I could feel her breath against my mouth. Slowly, Yuria initiated the kiss.
“Yeah… Really…” I whispered against her lips.
I stayed with Yuria, in her flat. I saw a bit Ichiro to pick some stuff that I let in his house. But today, we were going to see him to take my last stuff before leaving.
“I knew it! You found someone else!” My ex-boyfriend yelled at me.
It was enough. I had nothing to say to him.
“Stop it, we’re not together anymore.” I said calmly.
“She’s right, stop yelling at her.” Yuria said.
I didn’t expect to Yuria talking to him. She stayed quiet since we were here. He didn’t notice her.
“Yuria? Why are you here?” He started. “Did you come to say goodbye at your friend?”
“No, I’m her girlfriend. I’m leaving with her.” She said simply.
I didn’t know if it was a good idea… Her brother was dumbfounded. It was a bit funny the way she told him. It was direct and harsh but she was right. We took my bag and left.
“Yuria…?” I call her in front of the limousine.
“Hm?” She turned toward me.
I wanted to tell her since a long time.
“Do you remember… when you saw me in your dream?” I asked, looking at her surprised expression.
“Of course, why?”
“You know… In fact… I saw you too…In my dream.”
“We’re attaching.” She giggled.
Yes. We were attaching in our dreams but now we are attaching in the reality.
