This is my first JSRF fanfiction so please go easy on me. I've never played JGR before just JSRF so sorry if I get some of my facts wrong. Warning...some sexual scenes later on.
The heat in the Garage was unbearable. Everyone was cowering in the shade, trying to avoid the immense sun, or sunbathing with virtually nothing on. Gum was one of those sunbathing; she wore the shortest dress known to humanity in a pearly white shade and had a huge pair of sunglasses on covering her perfect blue eyes.
Every guy in the garage was staring at her, and she knew they were. She could feel their beady little eyes peeping out from under their caps or shades and she wasn't at all bothered. She knew having a perfect toned body paid off, not only for getting guys but for seducing leaders of other gangs into revealing their secrets. This benefited the other members of the GGs too. Corn would often send her to lure some unsuspecting noob of a leader into spilling everything they knew, although it pained him to do so, and she could tell it did.
Everyone knew of Corn and Gum's past relationship, it was one of the most well known love and heartbreak stories amongst the Rudies. When Gum broke up with Corn DJ Professor K announced it on his pirate radio station: Jet Set Radio. No one really knew how it had happened, they seemed so happy together, despite Gum's reputation for being a heartbreaker and Corn's commitment to the gang. Since then Corn had dated only one other girl and it had only lasted a few weeks. Everyone knew it was his rebound relationship, everyone could tell how hard he was trying to get over Gum, trying everything he could to wipe her from his mind, but it was no use.
Gum, however, dated quite a few guys since the breakup. Never anything too serious or anything that lasted over a month, everyone knew she just wanted sex, although Corn tried to put anyone who would listen straight. He swore Gum wasn't like that, and that she wouldn't sleep with any guy she didn't love. The proof however, was far too obvious. On more than one occasion the feisty teenager was seen entering private rooms with guys and then coming out half an hour later with her hair all messed up and her shirt clumsily buttoned up. Corn refused to see the obvious; it hurt him too much, just to see her with another guy. They remained friends though, and she'd often ask him how his love life was. Usually he'd blankly reply "fine" whilst she yattered on about her current boyfriend.
The sun was setting in the Garage and the GGs were relieved that the heat wave was over. Everyone whipped their shirts back on and came out from the shade, wondering what they should do for the night. It was then that Garam suggested they went to a party. Now they had called it truce with most of the other gangs in Tokyo, they were able to throw bigger parties in more places. The most famous of all parties were Rapid 99s street parties in 99th street. People from all over Tokyo would go there every Friday night and dance until dawn, right there in the open whilst the queens of 99th street led the dance from their very own palace: the tower in the centre. When Garam mentioned a party this immediately sprung to everyone's mind as it was indeed a Friday and they'd have to make the most of the night as there would probably be a storm the next day thanks to the heat wave.
"Yo, how about we go and pay the queens of 99th street a visit?" Combo suggested, although everyone was thinking it.
"You read my mind bro." Garam smiled. "99th street anyone?"
There was a positive sound of murmurs coming from the other members of the GGs. "99th street it is. We leave in half an hour."
Whilst Combo and Garam were speaking Corn sat alone on the couch, thinking about were he went wrong in his and Gum's relationship. It was her who ended it but he had a feeling he had somehow caused it. Well of course he caused it. He thought. How couldn't he have? Gum was the most gorgeous Rudie in Tokyo and to him in the world. When he was with her he always felt inferior, like the beast in Beauty and the beast. She always told him she loved him; that he was perfect in every way and that she didn't deserve a guy like him. No. He thought. I didn't deserve a girl like her. Corn had grown up with Gum; she was his best friend as well as lover. They had never officially asked each other out, it just kind of happened.
Corn's mind flashed to two years before, when it was just him, her and Roboy. Corn was sat on the edge of a skyscraper in the skyscraper district watching the stars with Gum's head resting on his chest. Although they were just friends at the time they often sat this close, she loved having her head against his chest, she could hear his heartbeat beating faster and faster, whilst he whispered sweet nothings in her ear and stroked her hair. He often told her about the stars and all the names, and during the day they'd lay watching clouds go by and guess the shapes. This particular night was a full moon and Gum lay on Corn's chest staring at the silver orb.
"Corn." She whispered. He looked down at her and smiled, she said nothing else but he knew what she meant. He wrapped his arm around her tighter as she slowly sat up to be face to face with him. "I love you." Corn whispered. Gum smiled and held his hand as they kissed for the first time.
Corn's memory flashed back, and suddenly he was sat back on the couch in the Garage, and everyone was leaving for 99th street. The leader reluctantly sat up and followed the others out of the Garage.
