The new year was starting today for the Hakusenkan students, the beginning of their third, and final school year. However, those weren't the thoughts that had caused for an initial gasp but then some very loud laughing from the Hanazono house. Hikari stood extremely nervously as she gazed at the two blue windows, and the color drained from her face. How on earth was she going to be able to tell him this?
As she came down the steps, her school uniform already on, she heard a ring at the door. Still looking white as a sheet, she stumbled two or three feet out of the door unsure who it was. Lifting her head, she blinked as she stared at her boyfriend's very familiar expression of a mix of "superiority", and concern. "You going to let me in or am I going to ha-"
Before Kei could finish what he was going to say, Hikari had already bolted inside the house again, having no clue what to say to him. How could she explain this to him, and then what about Oji-san, and his grandfather, this would just trouble them more. Still, didn't he have a right to know what was going on?
Opening the door again, she stood up as she saw him right outside. His eyes passing on the simple message 'You can't escape me.' With a lot of insecurity Hikari stared away from him, grasping the test in her hand. "Come on number two," he smiled affectionately, "We'll have one of our contests and if I win then you'll show me what you have in your hands. It's only troublesome to lock your problems aw-"
"Takishima," the girl whispered, bowing down in front of him as his eyes widened, "I...I'm sorry. I'll do something to make this up to you, one wish I'll..."
"Just tell me what it is," he grinned at her, attempting to help her feel happier again. However, her next two words caught him by complete surprise.

Chapter One: Do My Ears Deceive Me? (Super Short)
Kei stared ahead at the test, silently moving it out of her hand to get a better look as she kept herself on the ground, continuing to shake. He hated her for this didn't he? She'd have to do whatever it took to make it up for him because there was no way she could let him leave. Finally taking in the news, Kei lay a hand on the top of her head, "Hikari? You do understand that I love you don't you?" he attempted to ask her as she looked up at him.
Seeing the concern in her eyes broke the blonde, and he quickly pulled his girlfriend to his chest. He stroked her hair back before just sitting with her. He didn't know what to say because he wasn't the type of person who wanted to push Hikari in any direction, she was free and he liked that about her. Finally, he rubbed her shoulders hating to see her like this and whispered to her in a soothing voice, "The choice is up to-"
"If I decide to keep the baby," Hikari trembled as she looked back at him, "What does that mean about school, and my place in the S.A. Would I need to drop out?" Kei stared at her, noticing her trembling hands, he hated to see her like this, and would do just about anything to stop her from feeling so helpless. "Takishima..."
"Did you forget who your boyfriend is," the blonde stared at her with a determined expression which Hikari quickly matched, "I can pull any connections that you or the baby needs." As that word slipped out he turned very blank, the question running through his head that he didn't want to ask. "Hikari, I'm the dad right?" he finally spoke, his heart beating as he asked that question though he didn't know if there was anything to fear, he trusted Hikari so much.
The girl nodded, she looked up at him with love already in her eyes, although if he were to question her on it she wouldn't know what to say. "Of course Takishima, there's no one else in the world who I like as," at that point she turned extremely red from embarrassment and turned to run. He held onto her wrist.
"Good, so first things first number two. We're going to take the train to school, we can discuss more things on our way." He turned from her before picking up her case, and then grinned to himself, swinging the case back and forth. "Needless to say number two, I'll be moving in here."
"What!?" Hikari asked, her eyes widening as she ran out after him, slipping her shoes on and locking the door as she left. "Takishima? What are you...talking about?"
"Hmm, does number two not want to take the possibility of a challenge every morning, well if that's the case I'll just have to drag you to my house and tie you up there. I'm not about to let you deal with this by yourself. In fact," he took another breath in, "Ever since your father left I've been scared for you. There's no way I'll let you live by yourself any more."
"Dad should still know," Hikari thought aloud before Kei came towards her, slipping his hands up her neck and towards her chin as he looked down upon her.
"If you want, we'll go down and tell him personally, I promise." Kei whispered as he held her tight to him, "I'll leave most of the decisions up to you number two, just tell me when you need me." At those words Hikari bowed her head with a smile. How could he make even this feel so easy?
