HOME SWEET HOME
Chapter 1: Wandering
It was a hot afternoon of June. A long dark-haired girl was wandering in the streets of Tokyo with a huge travel bag on her shoulder. The chunky silhouette didn’t seem to know where to go and was nervously checking at her cellphone. It had been four days since she came back in Japan and she was out on the streets, again.
She had spent four days at Suzuki Kanon’s apartment, her best friend, before being booted out. The ex-Morning Musume member complained about her laziness, her difficulty at waking up and, above all, her messy way of living.
The poor girl needed to find a place to sleep quickly since the sun was already setting. She sure thought about giving a call to Masaki, Haruka or Sakura but the three still lived with their parents and she didn’t want to crash into families.
It was the same for Mizuki and she regretted it badly. She would have loved to live with the so sexy Fuku-chan! She could have been able to touch her skin all day long! And maybe even at night!
A sly grin broke on the girl’s face but she was soon taken out of her reverie by the vibration of her phone. She was running out of battery.
Damn! She needed to act and quickly.
She suddenly remembered that Haruna, from the 10th generation, was living alone in Tokyo. She decided to give it a try but she landed on her answering machine:
Hello you. I don’t know who you are but you are, for sure, a good person since you call me! Unfortunately, I can’t answer right know, I spend the day with Aya-chan. Wish me good luck, I think I’ll need it! Thank you! Fu fu fu
The girl lifted an eyebrow as she was listening to the strange message. The woman nicknamed “Honey” didn’t change although she was nearly 24 years old, still so bizarre! No wondered she was close friend with Wada Ayaka, the leader of Angerme...
Then she thought about calling her kouhai but it would be too shameful for her to ask for their help.
And she thought about her senpai.
Takahashi Ai was married, so, it was out of the question for her to disturb her peaceful life. Likewise, Michishige Sayumi and Kamei Eri were on cloud 9, living their romance to the fullest since Sayumi’s graduation. Niigaki Risa was on tour with her theater company. And there was Mitsui Aika but she had never been close to her, so, she would find it odd to ask for her help.
And there was Tanaka Reina.
But the girl was scared of her well-known parties with the Lovendor crew where a lot of drinking was involved. Totally desperate, she still decided to give it a try.
“Moshi-moshi?” A familiar yankee voice answered.
“Tanaka-san? It’s me...” The girl announced shyly.
“Oh my gosh! Does it mean...you’re finally back? I mean, in Japan?” Reina exclaimed loudly.
“Since when?!” The yankee couldn’t hide her excitation any longer.
“And ya didn’t tell me?! Ya little...I’m gonna kick your butt when I see ya!” The Rokky growled. She was now talking in her famous Fukuoka dialect.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t want to bother you...” The girl cried out in panic.
“Still the same...certain things don’t change, huh!” Reina retorted on an indignant tone, feigning to pout.
“Sorry.” The kouhai answered with a faint voice again.
“So! We must definitely party! And Sayu and Eri must definitely come! They’ll be so happy to see ya! Ai-chan and Gaki-san too! But ya already saw them, nah?” The senpai suggested, totally pumped up.
“No. In fact, I have a more urgent problem to settle. Right now I...I don’t have any place to be...” The girl confessed quietly. She was ashamed to be in such a situation and very pale now.
“What?! But what happened?! Ya know ya can tell me and ask me anythin’!” Reina said with concern.
“Well...my parents don’t want me to go back home since I haven’t find a job yet and, in any case, I need to live in Tokyo in order to find one. I had stayed at Kanon-chan’s apartment for four days but I got kicked out. I suppose my character is unbearable for her...” The girl explained with guilt and sadness in her voice.
“######! That sucks! Suzuki’s always been a pain in the ass! I’m really sorry for ya but don’t worry, ya can stay at my apartment! It won’t be too fun since I often hit the road with Lovendor but if you’re willin’ to be alone, I thin’ it’ll be fine!”
“Thank you Tanaka-san! You’re saving my life!” The girl exclaimed happily. She then breathed a sigh of relief.
“The only problem is that I’m in Fukuoka right now and I couldn’t make it before tomorrow mornin’ but, and I said BUT, ya can call Sayu! I’m sure she can help out for tonight and you’ll be safe if it’s just one night!” The Rokky suggested with confidence and on a friendly tone to reassure her kouhai. She nevertheless seemed highly amused by her last sentence and was giggling happily.
“Ok.” The girl answered on a deaf tone, unable to hide the disappointment in her voice.
“If Sayu doesn’t answer, try Eri! Call one or the other, it’s quite the same ya know...”
“My lil’ bro says hi to ya!”
“Promise me ya’ll call Sayu, ok? I can’t imagine ya sleepin’ in the street tonight!”
“I promise, don’t worry Tanaka-san and thanks for your help.” The younger girl answered politely.
“You’re welcome! I’ll mail ya tomorrow to let ya know when I’m in Tokyo!”
“Ok. I’ll wait for your mail then.”
And with that, the girl hung up and...frowned. Her problem was far from settled as she didn’t intend to call her senpai, Michishige Sayumi, but there was one person she hadn’t call yet. In fact, she really was not in a hurry to give it a try but her situation so required, so, she dialed her number.
“Moshi moshi?” A sharp voice answered.
“Eri? it’s me!” The girl managed to sound enthusiastic.
“Oh crap, Bocchi! Did you come back?! It’s been a while!” The older girl exclaimed loudly.
“Don’t call me that way!” The younger retorted angrily.
“But you like it and I’m sure you missed it in America!” The sharp voice teased happily.
“Listen, I don’t have much battery left, so, I’ll make it quick. I’m in deep shit tonight. Would you...would you let me sleep at your home? I’ve got nowhere to go and...”
A repeating bip suddenly rang.
There was no voice anymore on the other end of the line. Her generation mate just hung up.
“That damn Eripon!” The girl growled with frustration.
She was now definitely sure she had nowhere to go tonight. She wondered if she could find a manga kissa* where she could take a shower and rest a few hours.
Unless she called that person. That very person…
The girl looked at her phone again. The screen was dark. She pressed a button to light it up but nothing happened. Her battery just died.
“This is one of the worst day in my life, for sure!” She thought. She was more frustrated than ever.
She had to go to her apartment directly if she ever wanted to have a chance to sleep in a bed or on a sofa tonight. She was still not too sure about the idea since their relation had always been ambiguous and complicated. Moreover, they left each other on bad terms two years ago. They hardly talked since that fateful Valentine day.
Without realizing it, her feet were already going in the direction of the older girl’s apartment which was, strangely and thankfully, not far from here.
The homeless girl took some comfort in the fact that she could finally get rid of her travel bag which was really too heavy.
There she was, in front of the apartment’s door.
Thanks to a kind neighbor, the girl managed to sneak easily inside the building. She quickly found the right door since she came here a few times and her comrade never moved out of here since she moved in Tokyo in 2011.
The homeless girl gulped.
She needed to be brave. She couldn’t run away her whole life after all. She lifted a shaking finger toward the doorbell and rang. A familiar voice shouted.
“Yes, I’m coming!”
The girl gulped again and readjusted the bag on her shoulder. She quickly reordered her hairs too to look better.
The door opened slowly, revealing a beautiful young lady with a pale face framed by long ginger straight hairs and adorned by oak tree colored eyes.
As soon as she saw who was in the doorway, she let the ladle she held in her right hand fall on the floor, her eyes widening in shock and her lips parting in an utterly surprised expression.
“Sa...Sayashi-san?!” was all the shocked girl could articulate.
“I...I’m home Ayumi-chan!” was the only answer, formulated awkwardly, she got.
