I didn't sleep at all today and got a headache. My uncle got sick and went to the hospital at 1 AM and my father asked me to join him to go to the hospital. The doctor said that he have a blood in his brain and must be taken out. And I end up at the hospital until 5 AM before the surgeon began. As soon as I got home, I went to my bedroom and got a bit sleep. I can't go back to sleep now. Sigh...
Happy reading anyway...
Gene kept muttering something under his breath. The other frowned. 'Is their mother is so scary?' They thought.
Mai tried to ease the situation. "Is she like to glare like Naru?" Mai asked.
Naru's mom wore a black high heel and black winter coat and big black hat with a black nail. Maybe she has black skin too? Maybe not, Naru and Gene have white skin.
She went into the office and looked around. She glared at us when we dumbstruck at her sudden appearance. We greeted her and bowed. She smirked satisfied and took out a mirror pocket.
She looked at her reflection from the mirror and grinned. "Perfect." She said.
Well, she was as narcissist as Naru!
End of imagination.
Houshou laughed loudly. Ayako and John chuckled furiously. "They are black holic too huh?" Houshou joked. "I wonder if she..."
Naru's mom came into the office elegantly. She wore a gothic type cloth. Also a make up! A black fingernail, a black make up under her eyes, and also a black also used a sunglass like a mafia.
She handed her handbag at Lin and looked around the office. "There is still a dust here." She said while rubbing the window glass. "And the paper is in mess. The air isn't clean." She commented.
She went into the kitchen. "This tea is not good. You must use this kind and this kind. This is the highest quality. I want all the best for my sons."
She went into Naru's office. "Hm, this is perfect. Dim and tidy!"
End of imagination
"What's so perfect from that office? Naru's office is like a ghost lair or maybe it is." Gene commented. They laughed.
"She should be angry. It wasn't good to read at a dim room." Ayako commented. "I thought his mother would be like Gene."
Naru's mom came into the SPR office. "Good afternoon everyone." She greeted. "It's nice to meet you all." She continued
She used white winter coat and a boots. She took a small handbag. She used a red lipstick and red nail colored nail.
"Naru-chan, please introduce your friend to mom." She asked sweetly.
Naru glared at her. "Naru-chan, if you don't want to do it, mom will punish you. You know mom had all your pictures." His mom said while still smiling.
End of imagination.
Gene laughed a bit. "It's true that I got this habit from mother but she is really different from all of you imagined." He said.
Suddenly a woman came in, she was a beautiful woman. She used a brown winter coat and a boot. Gene took a deep breath and smiled at her. "Gene..." She whispered. She ran into Gene and pulled him into a hug.
"Oh my God, Gene! This is really you!? Thanks God!" She shouted.
"Sorry mother, I had made you worry." Gene hugged her back.
She pulled away from Gene and looked him up and down. "You are really alright!? No injuries? Are you felt dizzy? Or do you have any fever? Oh no, please tell me you're alright!"
"Mother, please calm down. I'm perfectly fine."
She took a deep breath and calmed down. She wiped her tear and smiled at her son. "I'm glad to see you again, Gene." She said.
Gene replied her with a nervous smile. 'Here it goes...' Gene thought.
While the other looked with awe at the motherly scene, outside Naru let out a chuckle at his brother's thought.
Suddenly... SMACK! The other Blinked, blinked, and blinked again. 'Hee!? Where did that motherly scene go?'
Gene was hit by a fist from his mother. "HOW COULD YOU DIDN'T GIVE ME ANY NEWS EVER SINCE! I'M WORRIED TO DEATH!" His mother scolded him.
Gene caressed his sore head and apologized. "Sorry, I forgot..." and he received another smack.
"Forgot!? YOU FORGOT!? Listen to me, young man. I had told you over and over to make a note so you won't forget a necessary thing!" Gene nodded lightly. "Do you know... how I worried about you day and night?" Gene nodded again and received another smack.
"It must be hurt..." Mai commented. Luella heard that and took a peek to her surrounding.
She turned and faced the other. "Hey all, I'm Luella Davis, Gene and Noll's mother. Thank you for taking care of my sons." She said, showing completely different attitude.
They were speechless for a while. Houshou regained his composure faster than the other."No worry, ma'am." Houshou said. "I'm Takigawa Houshou, a monk."
"I'm Matsuzaki Ayako, a miko." Ayako introduced.
"I'm John Brown, a priest. Nice to meet you." John greeted.
Mai bowed. "I'm Taniyama Mai. Nice to meet you." Mai said.
"You're Mai-chan!? SO CUTE! You looked like a puppy! I heard about you a lot!" Luella said excitedly. She pulled Mai into a hug and pulled her cheek as if Mai were a doll. Mai sweat dropped. "I wonder when Noll will take you to be his girlfriend."
"Mother, Mai is already officially become Noll's girlfriend for a few months." Gene informed. His mom squealed happily. He winced a bit like someone hit him.
"WHY DO YOU Told MOTHER ABOUT THAT!?" Naru screamed in his mind.
"Aw, come on. What happen with the 'adult taste' you proud of?" Gene mocked back.
"Shut up, stupid medium. Wait until I got there. You're dead."
"Peace, brother, peace..."
Naru, Lin, and Madoka arrived in heavy breathe. They took a big bag from the first floor until the third floor. Luella refused to leave it at the van.
"Why don't you leave this all in the van, mother? You would stay at my apartment, isn't it?" Naru asked in annoyance.
"No, no! I get some present to them all, now give it to me." Luella said.
She took out some boxes and looked at the name which was written neatly. She gave some to them. Naru refused to take the box because he had known what that was.
"Listen, Oliver Davis. I'm your mother and you're my son. Listen what I said."
The other almost clapped if Naru didn't glare at them.
"Mother, I'm working." Naru reasoned.
"Don't care. I want you to take it NOW." Luella answered back.
"For God's sake, I'm twenty! I don't need any present like 'this'!" Naru shouted in his mind. Gene nodded in agreement. He looked at his girlfriend who was giggling silently. He got an idea.
"Mother, let me introduce you." Naru pulled Mai to his side. "This girl is Taniyama Mai, my GIRLFRIEND. Why doesn't Mother dress her up so you would know her taste of clothing? You can know her more."
Luella thought for a while. "Why me?" Mai whispered to Naru.
"You are my assistant do what I said." Naru whispered back and smiled. "Good luck. My mother is very stubborn and very dense."
"You..."Mai huffed angrily. "Take me to a date later, okay?" She gave a small pout.
'She's really cute when she wants something.' Naru thought. Naru nodded and gave her a peck on her cheek.
"Since you have dated for a few months... How about if we go to a bridal and test for a wedding dress?" Luella suggested.
Naru and Mai jumped in surprise. "We-Wedding dress!?" They shouted in unison.
Luella looked sad. "I am already old and I want a grandchild soon." Luella begged.
Naru always hated her drama. Masako quite reminded him to his mother. "Mother." Naru warned. "I'm just twenty and Mai is still nineteen." Plus, he hasn't proposed her...
"Don't worry Noll. Mother will help you to care the baby!" Mai almost fainted at the word 'baby'.
"Mai is still in college!"
"Please..." Luella begged with a sparkling puppy eyes, the other narrowed their eyes at the brightness.
"No." Naru said ignored the eyes. Mai is the one and the only who can melt him with her puppy eyes. Why was his mother rather pushy than usual anyway? Or was her always like this? No, he didn't think that his mother would be this noisy, dense and being a drama queen just for persuade him to marry Mai. She didn't have to anyway. He will... no, he is going to marry Mai but not so soon. He was not ready neither Mai.
"Please, Noll. I..." Luella said with teary eyes. "I don't know how long I could live." Luella sobbed a bit too dramatically. "I only hope to hug my grandchild before I'm died."
Naru was getting more and more annoyed. Was he really easy to be pissed? "Stop that act. Tell me what are you come here for?"
"I want to persuade you to get married soon."
Luella sobbed again. "You don't believe mother?" Luella asked. "Noll, you're meanie!" Luella's eyes showed a really bright flash.
John, Ayako, Houshou and Mai closed their eyes because of the too intense of brightness.
"Mother, turn off the flashlight." Naru said.
"Tsk." Luella took out the flashlight and put in on the table.
The other fell down comically. They sweat dropped at their boss' mother unique.
Suddenly Naru glared at his mother. "Don't tell me you had another fight with father so you ran from home AGAIN and came here without telling him AGAIN." Naru said.
Luella jumped a bit and looked away nervously. Gene slapped his forehead.
"MOTHER!" Naru and Gene scolded her in unison.
Naru rubbed his forehead. He got a very bad headache now. His father was going crazy for sure. Last time his mother did that, his father almost hang himself if Naru wasn't come to tell him that Luella was go shopping with Madoka that time in Paris.
"I hope father is too busy with his research so he won't notice that mother is gone..." Gene muttered.
"I don't want to go to England just to tell father not to slit his vein because you're here save and sound not being captive or anything else you written on the note this time." Naru said. "Now, what are you two fighting about?"
Luella sighed at his son's guess which was true, she looked away in annoyance.
Naru waited her mother to answer but she didn't say anything. "Is it related the woman who stood in front of the door who eavesdropped since we arrived?" Naru asked.
Luella jumped in surprise. "Wha-wah-wha-wah-what are you t-ta-talking about?" She said stuttering, completely obvious.
"Her bag's number is the same as yours. I saw it when I gather your bag. You came with her, did you?" Naru gestured to open the door.
Mai opened the door and looked at the woman in surprise. She has a wavy long black hair with black eyes. She was looked like around twenty and very beautiful. Mai let her come in when Naru nodded at her.
"Akemi Sara, despite of her young looking, she is already forty. She is working as a collector. She's my college friend. She came to England to ask for my help. And... Martin is VERY busy with his current project and refused to be disturbed so we got into a little fighting and I came here to take her case for you." Luella explained.
Naru noticed sarcatism when Luella said that. It must be more than 'little fighting'. But before he says something, his co-worker disturbed him.
They stared at the woman up and down. "FORTY!?" Mai, Ayako and Houshou pointed at her in unison.
"Forty eight to be exact." Sara corrected. Mai, Ayako and Houshou stared at her up and down and up and down again.
John smiled awkwardly. "That's rude, Ayako-san, Bou-san, Mai-san..." He said.
"Don't worry, young priest. I got that a lot." Sara said.
Naru sighed and let it slide for this time being. "Mai, tea." Naru said.
Mai blushed in embarrassment. She immediately went to the kitchen.
"I'll make this quick so please listen and don't cut me in the middle of the story." Sara started when Mai got out from the kitchen and settled it in front of everyone. "I just hate to be interupted when doing something."
Little talk at the another world
"At last you got into the main story." Rei said when I visited him in his place. His place was quiet and calm. It was an ideal place to search for inspiration.
"Don't worry, Rei. You'll also get a role to play here." I said.
"Oh, really? I almost thought that you had forgotten me." He gave me a mock smile
"I almost forgot but fortunately I haven't." I shot the mock smile back to him. He said nothing but his face was annoyed.
I looked at the children who were playing on the water. Sometimes I thought that this place is an orphanage. A ghost orphanage maybe? I chuckled.
What is Luella's fighting about?
Mai: ugh... (thinking about the first encounter) Maybe it's about ideas of something?
Ayako: I'm sure it is about work! He must be a workaholic like his son! A good wife shouldn't allow that!
Houshou: Girls are annoying if it's about present or days. Must be about the husband forgot the anniversary and the present.
John: I really don't want to say anything about this... (laughing nervously)
Masako: He must have insulted her. An old married couple got that a lot, especially the male is always insulting the female because they have been old and not as beautiful as before!
Yasuhara: According to my research, the reason of couple fight is **% about bla bla bla, **% about bla bla bla (ranting out about his research)
Kazahaya: I don't care about that! MY WORKS ARE PILED UP! RYOU! GIMME A BREAK! (Crying while both of his hands are writting. He is both-handed anyway...)
Ryoutarou: Hm, I don't have an interest about that so I can't say anything. Beside, I have to do something with this Shachou-sama. (Kazahaya: (pout) You don't have to if you don't want...)
Lin: ... (after one hour) ... (two hours) ... (okay, I give up)
Madoka: (laugh) You don't have to worry about that, Lu is... (start to gossipping, after one hour) then when we are trying... (after two hours) so Martin said that... (Hiks, she didn't answer my question!)
Gene and Naru: ...
Aoi: aw, come on! They are your parents! Say something!
Gene: (chuckle) Not that I care... Last time they are arguing about ketchup and tomato sauce on omelet... and end up fighting for a day until one of them admit their lose... Don't worry, they will end it soon.
Naru: (sigh) Why should she come here anyway? She could just send the client with Madoka...
Aoi: (chuckle) fighting over ketchup and tomato sauce... (Burst into laughter) Your family is interesting!
Gene and Naru: (little blush) 'It's not something to be proud of...'
End of Omake
Somehow I felt a sullen aura from Rei. I wonder what happen with him. One of the children came to me. "It's because you didn't ask for his opinion." He said.
"I wasn't being asked... I wasn't being asked..." He repeated the same words.
I sweat dropped. Is he a kid? "It's boring to ask him because he has known the reason. He knows everything after all..." I grumbled.
