When other girls dream to have a romantic beautiful proposal, I dream to have a weird one ;)
“Shinji, will you just decide what will you buy for Aya for her birthday?”
Sora sighed heavily while scratching his spiky red-brownish hair. He kept walking from left to right, ended up making a circle round behind the back of a man with black spiky hair who sat in front of a computer busily typing something. Finally Sora gave up and just leaned his back to the wall, crossing his arm and observing his friend type something really fast in Google.
“What kind of gift do you want to give her actually…?”
No answer. Curious. Sora move closer behind Shinji and leaned forward to see what Shinji was looking for in Google for more than 2 hours.
How to prepare a Romantic Proposal
Sora gasped and jumped out 3 steps away from Shinji when he saw what Shinji had been searching for all this 2 hours. Shinji awkwardly turned his head to see Sora shock face. They stared at each other for a moment then Shinji turned his head back to the computer screen, cheek burnt red of embarrassment.
“She is 16!”
“It’s just Aya - chan 16th Birthday! it doesn’t mean you have to propose her!”
The librarian lady in the front reception, loudly made “Sssshhh!!” sound to made the 2 boys went silent. Sora and Shinji looked at each other, telling each other to shut their mouth up. They went paused for a moment. It breaks off when Sora sighed and once again leaned his back to the wall, waiting for his dear best friend to speak.
“I am scared…”
Shinji murmured really low that Sora almost couldn’t hear what Shinji said, but saw the sad and gloomy face that expressed at the face that usually so happy and bright. Sora knew its a serious problem.
“Scared of what?”
Shinji sighed when he heard the question. Shinji lifted up his face to show Sora his blue - sky colored eyes that now looked a little bit darker because of the sadness. After another long silent (and making almost cry and weird faces), Shinji finally began to talk.
“I have to propose her because I can’t imagine to see Aya with another boy, holding hands together, hug each other, kissing each other… or MAYBE EVEN WORSE!! I am scared to see that, so that’s why I want to propose her so he could be mine the entire time…”
Sora thought that later when Shinji finally talked, he will try his best to be sympathetic with him, not saying a harsh words, or ended up scolding him. But Shinji totally broke that mood to be sympathetic.
“Shinji, you are 21! Not 5!”
“Don’t be so selfish and stupid!”
“I told you I am scared!”
“Your fear is unreasonable!!”
“Look, if you do this it’s the same with forcing her to marry you!”
Sora almost raised his voice, but it didn’t happen because he lost to find words to say. After a short pause, Sora began to open his mouth and start scolding the jerk again.
“Look, Relationship is all about to let everything go with the flow… All you have to do is to manage that you will follow the flow! Look you’ve been together for 3 years, its a proof that you and Aya can manage your relationship until Aya reach the decent age to marry you!”
“So 16 is not decent?”
Shinji pouted, Sora blinked his eyes and his mouth opened widely, sign that he’s trying to find an answer.
“Yes, is not decent. People would think that you make her pregnant”
“Seriously! People will think about that first, or maybe even worse! Look Shinji, trust me… you will manage this relationship until… Aya reach the age of… um… I don’t know”
Sora thought that Shinji will once again pouted or start to babbling like a child but Shinji’s face slowly turn brighter and a wide smile drawn clearly on his face. But not more than 10 seconds the smile drop again from Shinji’s face.
“But Sora… I already bought a ring”
Shinji took out a small black box from his trousers pocket. He slowly opened the box to show Sora the shine of the white - golden ring he bought yesterday. Sora couldn’t give any argument, everything became trite and dull as hell.
“Aya will totally be the one lucky bitch in the world”
“Should I propose her. Sora…? What should I do now…?”
“No choice. Propose her, or your ring will rotten”
“Don’t ask me how. You have to find that by yourself”
Sora gave an evil smirk to Shinji while he walked away leaving alone his friend in such a terrible and confused state. It’s better that way because Sora will totally be no help when it comes to love or romantic things. Asking google is totally a better way to solve this.
The next day…
Shinji couldn’t think of a romantic place to propose a woman (a girl) like Aya. Aya is totally not up into girly things like candle night dinner or classic romantic proposal. Normally Shinji would find everything that will make the girl pouted or just started being abusive and hitting him (Shinji found it cute when Aya starting act to be so predictable and let out a harsh word to swear him). In the end Shinji brought her to the park where they first met each other. Because it states in google that a place where you first met each other bring a romantic nostalgic atmosphere that will definitely make the girl say YES
Shinji turned his head to the unhappy orange haired girl behind him who put both of her hands on her waist and stared at him deeply. This made Shinji more nervous and scared.
“Why you bring me here?”
“I have to talk to you about something”
“Okay… and what do you want to talk about?”
Shinji couldn’t help but screaming inside his inner mind the ‘F’ word , “CRAP!” , and “Oh God… Bummer” many times to calm his own self (which is failed). The girl asked and it will be totally awkward if Shinji suddenly kneeled down, show her a ring and bluntly said
“Aya… will you marry me?”
Now everything will blew up into pieces and Aya will went out with that Someone person Shinji wouldn’t ever want to see. Its Fo’sho… Fo.. sho…
“Shinji… I’ll go home”
“Wait?! What?! NO!!”
“If you won’t talk about anything, then it’s better for me to go home. I have something better to do there”
“No… AYA!! WAIT!!”
Aya was ready to left Shinji alone in the park, she already turned her back against Shinji but suddenly Shinji pull her left hand and slip something to her finger ring. Something circle and beautiful. The Golden white ring that Shinji prepared fit perfectly to her finger, like it’s really belong there. Shinji shut his eyes automatically, waiting for her to give an answer.
Aya didn’t say anything, she just dumbly observing the new ‘object’ in her finger. Perfect Shinji… Really, really perfect! You just did something that really was MEGA BUMMER!! You just proposed a 16th years old girl, and even gave her the most indecent proposal ever in the world! No kneeling! No romantic words! (eventhough its not Aya’s thing) but now he totally could feel that death slowly crawling to him.
Shinji gasped when he heard his girlfriend’s alto voice calling out his name. Slowly Shinji opened both of his eyes that shut tightly because of his fears.
“Are you just proposing me?” (Of course he is! DUH!!)
“Hmmm… my answer is No…”
The couples stared at each other. Shinji sighed out a long breath, he knew from beginning that he should actually not proposing her, he destroyed everything now. The beautiful 3 years relationship that he built so hard (not really) is now over. Shinji turned his back against Aya and slowly walked away from her when suddenly one of his legs cramped.
He screamed loudly because of the pain he felt. This always happened when he felt nervous, he just didn’t realize it because he was extra nervous just now. Great, now he couldn’t even move his legs and walk away from his EX girlfriend (eventhough is not yet decided). Shinji just sat on the dirt and sobbed, let out all of his sadness. He didn’t care anymore about how silly he look now.
“No for Not now, silly! Why are you crying?!”
Suddenly Shinji felt a warm rush on his shoulder, his girlfriend hugged him from the back while jokingly patted his head. Shinji gasped out, try to speak.
“Yep… not now! I am still 16 and you are now still 21… I still have high school and university to finish and you still have your university and you still have to find job”
“How about when you are 24 and I am 29?!”
Shinji’s spirit finally back to his body once again, he jumped on and show Aya the biggest and widest smile he could ever gave the girl. Aya just smirked and stared coldly to her stupid - freak - but she loves him so much - boyfriend (and annoying).
“Want to grab something to eat?”
Shinji offered nicely to Aya. Aya nodded and grabbed the hand of her boyfriend, holding it tightly. Shinji who realized the tightness of her grabbing hand let out a smile. A big smile. A happy smile.
“I’ll pay the dinner. It’s your birthday today after all…”
“My birthday…? My birthday is tomorrow…”
Shinji stopped his movement, staring to his girlfriend.
“Oh crap… I suppose to give that ring for you tomorrow then”
XD XD XD XD XD
The ginger haired lady sighed while she stares dumbly at the window beside her, she look a bit depressed, each time she will look at her watch. Seems like she’s waiting for someone really important, suddenly her phone rings, she quickly try to find her handphones through her mini skirts pocket.
“Oh, Hi Mary… I am sorry but I will be really late. There’s traffic jam here, and I have been stuck for 2 hours… I am really sorry…”
“Oh okay… it’s okay Vin…”
Mary, is the lady name. Her name resembles all of her beauty clearly, Wavy ginger hair that she ties messily, a clear grey eyes, and a sexy lips with red lipstick. When people see her, they will think about what kind of job she has and what kind of boyfriend she has.
Mary’s job ? She’s now a part timing singer in one of the local pub… but her main job now is a renegade and an informant. Actually she wants to be a good singer like her idol, Marylin Monroe, but that dream was stolen when she was 19, her foster mother who owns a big Moulin Rouge that she used to work to, died because of cancer. After that incident, the Moulin Rouge was torn down to pieces, and Mary started to wander as freelance singer from city to city.. Finally, a man, her foster mother’s friend who’s been looking for her, found her and recruited her to be a renegade. That time , Mary couldn’t think about anything except to found a job that will give her food and drink and place to stay, but now…
She is really grateful
Because of that dangerous job as renegade, she found her ideal boyfriend and she still can sing anytime she wants to. The mansion where she stayed now is really big, so that she has her own big room and a ballroom where she could sings and dances freely because it’s seldom for someone to be there.
I hate boys but boys love me
Mary starts to be bored, she begin to sing… She have waited for at least 3 hours, how come she won’t be mad or bored ? It’s really rare for her to meet her boyfriend. It’s right that they live in the same house when they have some missions as renegade, but her boyfriend is way more busy than her, and when it’s summer break, they live really far from each other. That’s why they will meet now to talk about living together and stuff
Mary sings some of Christina Aguilera’s song , and suddenly someone’s voice that she know so well calling her name with a really cheerful voice.
Mary see the man that standing in front of her with eyes as scary as she can make it. That man still keeps showing his little smile to Mary, don’t know why… Mary who wanted to be mad with him and scold him, melted because of that smile. She smiles back to him
“You are really late, Vin”
“I know, and I have to be honest about something”
Mary stares at the shoulder length black haired man, with golden eyes that stand in front of her and keep smiling to her, his smile looks like he is trying to not laugh about something. Finally his laugh burst out
“I am sorry! I was actually not stuck in traffic jam! I was there all the time, see you waiting for me!”
Vin, the man, point his finger to a table on the third floor. Mary look dumbly at Vin and she can feel her anger will leaks out anytime she wants it to, but she also feel tears start to fell from her eyes because she is so mad. How come he made her waiting for 3 hours just to made fun with her
Mary just about to starts to punch Vin, but Vin suddenly holds her hands. His eyes became so soft and look really guilty now.
“I have a reason”
“And what is that?!”
Mary forces to let go of Vin’s hands that grabbing her hands, but his too much powerful. She decides to give up and let Vin explain everything
“Look, you knew it right that you are the first woman that I fall in love to? I know that we are already dating for 2 years, before we will live together, I just.. want to see if I can trust you, I just want to see if you are faithful. I am really scared about these things, and I am sorry if I make you mad”
“OF COURSE I WILL BE FAITHFUL! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!”
Mary begin to cry, her tear drops are falling continuously and her make up start to fading because she is crying. Vin in other way smiles and grab something out of his pocket. A little black box, Mary gasped when she saw it, a little ring with topaz on it. Her birth stone
“Then, I won’t also worry about marrying you”
Marry can’t say anything… she punch Vin really hard on his stomach and hug him.
There is one friend ask me how many Original Characters I have, and how many stories I have made.
The answer is :
I have many original characters, but there are some that I always use and I also have written so many stories, but I am so stupid that I can’t find the right ending, so I ended up stop writing stories, eventhough I still do short stories with my own original stories and characters :( and what I do the best are make the characters! I love to make their names!
The list of the original characters I frequently use :
1: Eduart Hellsinger (Hei)
2. Ashlee Agony (Ashlee)
3. Dreizehn Agony (Dreizehn)
4. Raphael Hart (Raph)
5. Allicia Hart (Allicia)
6. Scarletta Inferno (Scar)
7. Ayane Misora (Aya)
8. Shinjiro (Shinji)
9. Vinushka Gale (Vin but you read it like Ven)
10. Mary Kasumi (Mary)
11. August Eighth (August)
12. Taro Kasumi (Taro)
13. Ray Darklighter (Ray)
14. Valkyrie Hisa ( Hisa)
and all of my Original Character’s story are connected one to another. Because the setting are something like they are good friends or couple :) and all of the characters name have special meaning, I usually find the names of my character using Dictionary or stealing my friend’s name XD
But as you can see, what I write oftenly is about Aya and August. Because they are my favorite, Aya is actually me and August is a figure of my super dream butler! August is actually really exist, and his name is an example for a friend name that I stole :D He is my best friend who act like a big brother for me :)
I will try to write short stories about the other characters later and the detail of each character when I have time :P
Nee Aya… Did you remember the first time we meet?
It was a beautiful rainy day. I was coming to Izumigaoka to pick up Hana - chan, because she had to go to doctor. Then, I met you there while you were talking with Ryoji and Hana - chan.
From the first time I realized quickly that you are a foreigner, but when you laugh and smile, I quickly realize also that you somehow you look like a Japanese. My other impressions are that you are somehow scary, because your face has no expression when you are talking… but then when I became your boyfriend. I know that you loves to laugh and you are pretty shy. But you get along to someone else really quickly, and also it’s really easy for you to make friends. You are different from another girls, an unique one… That’s why it was really easy for me to fall in love with you. Even we are apart now, and you are no longer my girlfriend… I still have the same feelings.
It’s really easy to give you presents for your birthday, chinese new year, and christmas. Because the things you like won’t change so quickly. I can name and say it loudly!
Those 6 are the main things you like!
It was really weird for our 1st anniversary… My ex - girlfriend wanted me to take her to a fancy restaurant or romantic places… but you rather have your own original romantic idea. I was quite surprised when I heard what you want for our 1st anniversary… and until we have our 3rd anniversary, what you want is still the same.
“Dinner with me doesn’t have to be so fancy :) Especially for our anniversary. I want it like the Sony Ericsson advertisement in TV ! A dinner in Park with Burgers and Chips :D COLA TOO! and music from me or your handphones! You could also bring your guitar and sing for me”
Also not like the other girls… you let our relationship flow like the river but also strong. You respect everything, my hobbies importantly.. I will like to sit in my room playing guitar and make some lyrics for hours, and you won’t complain something like
“Me and your guitar or me and your band! Which one do you love more?!”
No… You are not like that… Instead you will sit beside me and asked
“Can I request one song?!”
or you will busily play with my laptop and sing along with me if I play a song that you know. I miss those days
I am kinda selfish about you being so far from me… I know that you will only be so close with me every August because you have other things to do in your land. I am kinda mad too when you said that you will go somewhere really far for one year… Remember when I screamed over the phone and say
“IF YOU ARE JAPANESE, THEN WHY DON’T YOU LIVE IN JAPAN ?!”
It was the reason why we broke up. Because I am too selfish and never think about your dream… But I am also scared about you being so far from me, that’s why I give up and just let you go… I am glad that you are different. Normally if I broke up with a girl I will lost connection with her. But you?
You will be there still talking to me over skype and send sms to my phone eventhough you are so busy and it is also expensive.. I am happy that you always asked how is Hana - chan condition, how is otou - san liquor store, how is okaa - san doing, also how is Tetsu - kun and Mika - chan doing
Since the place you are staying now is really close to Hyde - Park. Will you go there someday when you have the chance and take pictures for me? It was really weird for someone like me to went to England for 3 weeks just because of that lucky grocery shop lottery, and until now the memories of England that still clearly fresh for my memories is only
That place is amazing. I don’t know why. If I can marry you I will absolutely take that place for our honeymoon. I am not kidding, mark this. I will be your groom 10 years or whatever years later :P
Well I have to go send this special christmas present for you! Hope it will reached your hands :) See you next year. Okay ?
Japan, Osaka. 17th December 2010
|Shinji:||What do you think an Angel looks like?|
|Me:||A woman... with blonde hair and blue eyes?|
|Shinji:||That's boring... I think... Angel is a woman with an black and orange tauped hair and golden eyes with flower patterns in it|
|Shinj:||And the angel now is talking with me! :)|
I miss Shinji so much. And this writing is dedicated to him… I just feel so sad that I lost someone I can rely to.
“Oh God! Oh God! oh shit, oh shit… She will call me in 10 minutes”
A black haired boy kept running and rushing toward the crowd of people in Osaka’s park. He kept also looking at his leather watch that he used in his right hand. Kept murmuring the fact that he will be late for something. He gasped and increased his speed when he saw an orange bus slowly came to the corner of the street. He managed to reach the bus stop first before the bus came. He couldn’t stand steady, he just kept stomping his feet to the ground. The bus finally came near him and stopped in front of him, he ran in when the door opened
“Wait for me Aya… wait for me… I will be there… I will be there…”
He sat in a chair near the exit door of the bus, he was trying to be calm, his brown round eyes just kept staring at the ceiling, he took off his black jacket slowly because he felt so warm from running. He stared at the black jacket he just took off. It was his favorite jacket because his girlfriend that will call him, gave him the jacket for his 19th birthday. Everytime his girlfriend come to Japan, he will wore it and ignoring the fact that the weather is so hot in summer.
Yeah. His girlfriend lives so far from him, and will only come to visit him every summer. No wonder summer is his favorite season of the year, or spring… because his girlfriend sometimes also visit him in spring. But for this year, she won’t come because she has somekind of business in another land that is not her homeland.
Every night when she has the chance she will call him and they will chat for 2 hours long. Or sometimes he will be the gentleman who will call her for 2 hours long with public telephone that located 1 hour with walking from his home and then come back home at 1 am in the morning and then wake up at 6 am for university. Because his school happened to be 2 hours driving with motorcycle from his house.
He hates the fact that he will always be a good gentleman because he just needs to hear her voice at least twice a week.
“Oh, Shinji… You don’t need to call me like this everytime. It’s expensive”
She will tell him that everytime he called her, but he just don’t give the damn and gave her a lousy excuse that she hates
“I don’t have nothing to do, Aya”
“You have university and you have your band”
“I manage it already”
And in the end he will be happy because she will gave up and told him every story and problems that happened to her. The boy gasped, suddenly realize the fact that he already arrived at the bus station where he should got off. He jumped out from the bus and rushed towards the public telephone near the bus stop. He looked at the watch again. It is 11pm at night, it means it is 3pm in Germany. The girl said that she will call him 3.30pm Germany time, so he didn’t have a chance but to run as fast as he can to his house.
“Hoi, Shinji!! Can you please…”
“No Oto – san !! I am busy!! “
He ran up to his room when he opened his house’s front door. Ignoring the request for help of his father. He opened his room quickly and slammed the door. He look at the time. It’s exactly 11.30pm, he soon heard the phone ring and quickly grab the phone on his work desk
“Moshi – moshi. Tsurugi Shinjiro– desu!”
He startled when he hear the heavy and sad sounded voice that call his name slowly. He couldn’t scream but asking what happened and thousand of questions
“Aya?! What happened?! What’s wrong?! Why are you crying ?!”
“I want to go home…”
“No… breath… please breath… slowly… calm yourself…”
The girl on the phone became silent so suddenly, she was trying to made herself calm. Shinji just couldn’t help it everytime he hear this kind of voice of her. She used to be a really strong girl that never cry, seems that culture shock made her become really weak.
“Don’t cry please… I hate this fact that I can’t hug you”
“Don’t say that please”
The girl laughed when he heard the boy said that. Her voice slowly became better, she told him everything. What problem she has and how she hates the other culture, and how she miss the warm sun of her homeland, how she miss the day she can laugh properly, and how she miss for being herself.
“I just want to blame the world and the demon king, Shinji…”
The boy went silent, he was trying to find the word to answer the girl’s questions. He know something right fit that statements
“You know Aya… When we watched that Durarara!! last year? There was this amazing quote we found right?”
“And what is that?”
The world is not as cruel as you take it to be
