Me and Subaru, both sat in a normal car. Finally, not in a limo. Subaru instructed the chauffeur that he would drive but in a normal car. It was peaceful. The sky was gloomy, giving us a sign that it would rain in a few hours. Just then, I remembered what happened.
"Subaru?" I called out in a soft voice.
"Do you know anyone by the name of Cordelia?" I ask as I look towards him.
He got tensed for a moment but regained his composure just as quick.
"No, baby. Why?" He asked nonchalantly.
I blushed furiously at the name and looked at my hands.
"J-Just asking." I stuttered and I swear I heard him mutter a quiet 'cute'.
We reached my work place in about 15 minutes and he dropped me off.
"See you after work." He said as he drove off.
"That your boyfriend?" I heard a voice behind me and jumped.
I turned around and saw Akio.
"Geez Akio. You scared the fuck out of me." I said as I heaved a sigh of relief.
"Watch it. If Mom Rina hears you then you're done for. She hates it when one of her child curses." He said with a kind smile which I returned.
"Let's go?" I asked and he nodded.
We both made our way inside to see Rina, Hikaru and Daisuke already ready. Mitsue was sitting at one of the tables and playing on his phone. Rina saw where I was looking and just sighed. She walked up to Mitsue and hit him on his head.
"Work Mitsue." She said sternly and Mitsue nodded.
"You can change first Rose. We'll wait here till your done." Akio says and smiles. I just nod and head to the change room.
I unlock my locker and take out my uniform. It isn't that bad honestly. I got used to this when I was in the States so I'm glad. I quickly change and headed out so that the boys could change as well. As soon as I stepped out, I see everyone looking at me. I blushed.
"D-Does it not look good?" I said in a small voice.
"N-Not at all! I-I mean! J-Just Woaahhh..." Akio exclaims.
I tilt my head to the side, not understanding what he meant.
"He just means that you look really cute." Rina explains.
I smile and thank her as the boys headed in to change.
As the guys come out, I couldn't help but look at Akio. He looks so handsome.
￼Why didn't I ever notice that he looked so freaking good?
I change into my uniform and walk out to see Rose just looking at me. I smirk and decide to tease her a little. Just a little though.
"Like what you see?" I asked with the smirk still on my face.
She blushes furiously and turns away. How cute.
"Okay. Start with the work. You're getting tables with Akio and Daisuke, Rose." Rina says and we both nod.
Before leaving, Daisuke grabs me by the wrist and pulls me back.
"Stay away." He whispers and I smirk again.
"In your dreams." I whisper back.
"Akio?" Rose calls and I look towards her.
"I've got to go now." I said to him and yank my hand away from his grip.
'This is going to get real interesting.'
~Back at home~
As soon as I reached home, I saw all the brothers sitting in the living room with Yui. She gave me a warm smile and I returned it. I went to one of the couches and sat next to Kanato and his Teddy.
"So? What happened?" Ayato asked.
"What do you mean? Nothing happened. I just dropped her off at work and came back." I said.
"Yeah right. You look like someone has sucked you dry. There's definitely something wrong." Laito says with a scoff.
"Yui? Could you please go to your room?" I asked and she hesitantly nodded and went up to her room.
"Cordelia happened." I said and Reiji immediately slammed his book shut.
"Why?" Shuu asks.
"Yeah, like I know." I scoff.
"Well, hasn't it been long enough without our Eve?" We hear a voice say.
We look up the stairs to see the Mukami brothers. How the fuck are they in??!!
"Looks like Subaru over here has developed quite some feelings for our precious Eve. Don't you think so Ruki?" Azusa teased. I blushed a little but continued to glare at them.
"Don't. Don't get too attached. It will be hard for you to let go when we take her." Ruki says with a smirk and just like that, they're gone.
"What the actual fuck?" Ayato mutters but we all hear him.
"I'm going to sleep." Shuu says and turns around in the couch.
"Yeah yeah. We all knew you didn't care about Rose anyway." I say with a smirk.
He immediately gets up and stomps towards me. He grabs me by the collar and looks me in the eyes. Bitch. I smirked and he got pissed off. He lifted his hand and punched me, making me fall on the ground. I stayed there while holding my cheek as he went back to sleep on the couch.
I slowly got up and went to my room, closing the door behind me. I go to the bathroom and take a look at myself in the mirror. Wow, it hurts more that I expected. The place where Shuu punched is actually starting to develop a bruise.
I quickly lather some medicine on and go to rest on my bed after setting an alarm to pick Rose up after her work. I probably won't sleep for so long but I wouldn't want to take the risk.
"Hello! Welcome to The Hideout." I say with a cheerful smile, greeting the couple that just walked in.
"Table for two?" I asked and the woman smiled at me and nodded. I returned her smile.
"Right this way please." I show them to the table and they made themselves comfortable.
"I'm Rose and I'll be serving you guys today. Any ideas on what I can you started with?" I asked in a soft voice.
"We'll let you know in sometime?" The guy asks with a smile and I return it, nodding.
"Sure. Let me know when you're ready." I said as I headed to the front where Rina was working.
"This place sells food too?" I ask her in shock.
I hadn't seen the menu before but this so called cafe sells desserts, snacks, breakfast and lunch.
"It's quite the menu huh? You would expect something more than just a cafe from a place this big." Rina says with a smile.
'It is unusually big for a freaking cafe.'
"We get a lot of customers here so that's why the wages are also quite high and reasonable." Rina says as she puts the cash in the register.
"Hello? Can we get a table for 6 please?" I heard a voice say behind me.
I turn around to see a guy with who I assume are his guy friends. He looks to be the same age as me or maybe a year or two older. He looked really good and they were all well dressed. I smiled at him and nodded.
"Please follow me." I said as I showed them to their table.
"My name is Rose and I'll be serving you today. Do let me know when you're ready to place your order." I say with a smile.
"Awesome. Thanks." One of the guys says with a warm smile.
"Hey Rose! I guess you're phone was going off before. Might wanna check it." Daisuke said as he headed off to take care of a table.
"Yeah sure. Thanks." I smiled and went to the change room.
I went to my locker and took my phone out. There were 12 missed calls from the same unknown number.
"Who the?" I mumbled to myself.
I decided to brush it off and go about my day. I placed my phone in the locker again as it started to ring. It was the same number. I answered the call and brought the phone near my ear.
"Hello?" I said.
"Hey! Is this Rose?" The voice of a guy asked.
"Yes and who is this?" I asked.
"Not important. You know, you look really sexy right now. I just want to make you mine and make you scream my name." He said and I cringed.
"I'm sorry but I have to go." I was about to hang up when he spoke again.
"You can go now baby but I will have you soon. I'll see you soon, princess." He said and I immediately hung up.
I was a bit scared but I couldn't let that get to me. I went back out after my 5 minutes of time waste and saw Rina looking at me with a worried expression. I smiled at her for reassurance and she nodded.
The couple I would be serving raised their hand and I made my way over to them.
"Ready to order?" I asked with a smile and they nodded.
"Just a question. Lunch sets can be customized right?" The woman asked me.
"Yes, ma'am." I replied with a smile.
"Okay then. We'll have 2 lunch sets with fish, miso soup, rice, tea and pickled vegetables." The man says and I note it down.
"So, 2 lunch sets with fish, miso soup, rice, tea and pickled vegetables." I repeat the order and they both nod.
"Any preference on the fish?" I ask.
"Salmon please." The man says and I note it down again.
"That will be a total of ¥2400. You're order will be with you soon." I smiled and bowed.
"Ah wait!" I heard the woman call out.
"Yes ma'am?" I questioned.
"Are you a high school student?" She asked me and I nodded.
"You look really pretty." She says and smile. I couldn't help but blush.
I muttered a small 'thank you' and excused myself. I gave the order in and stood beside Rina if she needed me.
'This is fun so far.' I thought to myself and smiled.
