Arashi Fiction : Winter Night Hollow CP2



            Ninomiya laughed when he heard Aiba was mocking Matsumoto with the incident that has happen earlier. He took a sip of his warm milk tea, and wipes his lips with the cloth that was given to him earlier when the beautiful young girl came and sent them their food. Aiba took a bite of his burger, he turned his gaze towards Matsumoto while chewing on the food inside his mouth, “And you think we didn’t see how red your too fair face were blushing?!” he said to Matsumoto. Matsumoto ate his rice when he was trying to ignore with what Aiba was telling them repeatedly. He knew his attention was only to mock him since he had made a promise to himself not to find any more women to be by his side for sometimes. He knew that he had loved his previous girlfriend too much, but it seems like she had decided to walk away from his life, how can he oblige himself to earn anything from her when she had turned away from him for the rest of his life already? Matsumoto drink his coffee.
            He rolled his eyes when he heard Aiba was still mocking him with Ninomiya right beside him. He raised one side of his eyebrow up and pushed Aiba’s shoulder to shut him up, but Aiba pushed his hand away. He looked at Matsumoto sharply, “Now, now, what is it?” he asked Matsumoto. Matsumoto lifted his hands up when he grabbed his mug before he took a sip of his coffee again, “You know that it isn’t polite to be mocking on people, Aiba-san?” Matsumoto said as he was pointing his fingers towards Aiba’s direction. Aiba chuckled slightly, “But Matsumoto, I told you, it was too obvious to see your face turned so bright!” he mocked Matsumoto once again. Matsumoto rolled his eyes, “Whatever,” Matsumoto replied Aiba but Aiba couldn’t stop laughing, “Right, Ninomi?” he asked Ninomiya but he didn’t get any answer from him, but he heard Ninomiya was laughing on his own.
            Aiba turned his gaze towards Ninomiya who seems to be busy reading the e-comic on his mobile phone and doesn’t seems to know what was actually going on in between him and Matsumoto. ‘Now, what the hell is this guy doing!! He should be joining me in!! Not being busy alone!!’ he grumbled alone in his heart and without any hesitation, he grabbed on Ninomiya’s leg to get his attention and accidently kicked his feet against his...  Ninomiya was startled instantly and grumbled when he felt Aiba grip on his thigh. He turned his gaze to the side and looked at Aiba who was staring sharply at his direction. Ninomiya raised his eyebrow’s up and looked at Aiba who was narrowing his eyebrow toto is direction, “Why aren’t you backing me up!!” Aiba grumbled to him silently. Ninomiya somehow has forgotten that they were with each other since the latest issue of the comic he was reading already came out this morning. Aiba gripped his fist tighter and in an instant,  Ninomiya sealed his eyes and he tries to remembers what did Aiba had said earlier.’ How can I forget!!’ Ninomiya grumbled inside his heart as he tries to remember what Aiba had said before…He knew that from the gaze he was staring at him, Aiba isn’t happy at all with his action. He pushed the spec he was wearing up as his mind was working to get back in line.
            ‘I know I heard what he was saying!! I knew I heard it!’ he said in his heart as he was trying to recall back everything. He squeezes his eyes tighter when he was obliging himself to remember… Ninomiya gripped his fist, ‘What did he said… what did he said!!’ he grumbled in his heart as he was feeling his heart pound harder than it was before…

            After a while of him thinking on his own, he felt like he could remember a slight something that Aiba had said earlier to Matsumoto…
            “It was obvious to see your face turned bright red!” his mind were playing around with him. Aiba had said that to Matsumoto earlier… and slowly he nodded his head… ‘Yeah….! That was it!’ he said and instantly, he opened his eyes once again. Aiba was still waiting for him to back him up to win this small ‘battle’. Matsumoto chuckled a little bit when he didn’t hear any respond from Ninomiya, “I think he disagree with you…” Matsumoto said to Aiba but before Matsumoto could finish his line, and with Aiba’s devastation face expression, Ninomiya cuts in, “But it was true, Matsumoto. Your face were burning red!” Ninomiya said to them and Aiba sullen face before has turned to something cheeky.
            “Oh! Thank God, Ninomi! You are on my side!” Aiba said when he turned his gaze towards Matsumoto. He touched on Matsumoto’s upper arm when he look at his hand had form a fist as he was infuriated with what both of them were doing to him. He looked at them statically; “No way!” her replied them. Aiba only smiled to Matsumoto when he patted on his shoulder, “Come on, man. How long do you think you can survive on your own?” he asked Matsumoto. He remembers what happened earlier this Autumn between him and Eriko. It was a sad story for a man with a pure heart like him, but he got to understand that this is the real life! There is no way for you to escape with what will, or might happen even in one second of your future time.
            “You got to forget about her and move on, man…” Aiba said to Matsumoto when he took a bite of his burger. Ninomiya nodded his head once again, “Yeah, Matsu. I think what Aiba said is right. You know you can’t mend a glass that has been shattered to pieces,” Ninomiya said to Matsumoto who seems to be thinking of something else. But both of them knew that his eyes were gazing at the girl that was serving her guest at the other side. Matsumoto inhaled a deep breath as he sealed his eyes shut, ‘Maybe they could be right about this…’ he said in his heart, but how hard he was trying to forget her, she was still buried in his heart… He felt his heart skipped a bear as he wanted to forget about everything at that time.

            At the end, he sighed alone and looked at them blankly, “Let’s just finish our food and maybe we can go somewhere else to get some fresh cold air of the night,” he said to both Ninomiya and Aiba at the same time. He looked a head and he already saw a glimpse of the moon that was starting to shine on the ground they were stepping on. He looked at the clock on the wall beside him and it seems like it was only eight at night but the world outside seems like it was already two in the morning… Perhaps life in Japan and America isn’t the same deal, but hey, they still came from the same world. Matsumoto sealed his eyes, ‘You are still in my heart, Eriko…’ he whispered when the sound of both Ninomiya and Aiba were talking to each other were playing around at some other side of where they were at that time.

            The cold wind of the winter night was blowing inside the house through an open window that the person who was living inside the house had forgotten to close earlier. A man who was wearing his sweater, fallen asleep across a young lady inside the living room hall grumbled slightly as slowly, he opened his eyes to see what was actually happening. He felt the strong wind blew against his body and the chill of it was awakening him from his long sleep earlier. He groaned alone, “Argh! What the hell…” he mumbles alone. He lifted one side of his hand up and rubbed his face with his fingers that was slightly frozen from the freezing cold weather outside.
            He looked around where he was laying at and he knew he had seen this place before but somehow he had forgotten where he was… he raised one side of his eyebrow up as after sometime of him trying to remember.. Where the living room hall has been a mess with all the empty cans of beers, pizza boxes all over the table, and glasses filled with too many types of drinks, empty plastic bags were all over the place where he was at, he really tries to remember what actually happen before… He sealed his eyes once again and hope that there would be a glimpse of hint would made him recall back everything.
            He was waiting in silent for quiet sometimes, and there wasn’t anything that came back to his mind. “What the hell actually happen?” he asked himself and he was trying to move, he felt something was moving underneath where he was sitting on and he reached out for it. He pulled a pack of something from behind the back pocket of his jeans and how he was surprise to see a half pack of ecstasy that he had bought before he went to where he was right then. He furrowed his eyes once again and sealed it shut one more time… “Did I finish half of this pack?” he wondered alone, looking at the ecstasy he was holding in his hand, but somehow, something else came back in his mind.

            “Do you really think that this house belongs to nobody?” he heard Aiba said to him as the seven of them were walking around in an empty hall of a house that was so beautiful somewhere nearby where they were living for these few days already. Ohno looked at them as he was walking right beside them. He looked at the dining table close enough to the hall was already served with some delicious meal already served for seven on the table. Ohno looked around when he was calculating how many were there inside the house and after sometime of him looking long enough, he was sure that there were only seven of them. He lifted one side of eyebrow up and wondered, ‘Was these meals served for us?’ the question kept on playing in his mind but he was sure that they were only foreigner at that place. They are not from St. valentine, let alone from United States of America. His thought somehow had drifted him away… ‘No.. it couldn’t be it…’ he said silently when he heard those chairs that were close to him were pulled away and they were laughing as they were enjoying themselves.
            “Hey! Ohno! Come and join us!” he heard, Sakurai was calling for him and slowly, he turned around as he suddenly felt his eart was pounding so hard. He had a gulp when felt doubtful to see what was actually happening, but with the sound of his friends kept on calling for him, he decided to turn around and see what was actually going on.  He looked at them already sat at the hiding table as they were enjoying their meal and somehow, he notice a shadow that was walking close enough to them, serving them the meal they were enjoying at that time. He smiled to them as he was walking closer to them but the more closer he was to where they were, it seems like the more further he was from them.
            Ohno furrowed his eyebrow, “This isn’t real?|” he said alone, but everything seems to be so real to his eyes. Why does it feel like it was only an illusion to him at some point? His girlfriend, Naomi, was waving her hand for him to get closer to her. She reach her hand out to get for him, but it seems like he couldn’t even get any closer to her…
            “Naomi!” he called for her name. He looked at Sakurai was waving his hand for him to be there as soon as he possibly can. Matsumoto, Aiba and Ninomiya was talking to each other about a lady they had seen before, but it seems like Jessica, couldn’t stop pulling Sakurai to make love to her instead of eating their dinner. Everybody turned their gaze away from him, and somehow, he felt infuriated and wanted to walk away from there, “Argh! I should just get away!” he grumbled on his own, but when he wanted to take a step forward, suddenly the light inside the room was turned off and he couldn’t see anything else anymore.
            Ohno turned around as he was slightly startled when suddenly he couldn’t see anything. He was struggling to get out from there but each steps that he took he would accidently ran against something on the ground. “What the hell is all of this?!” he groaned on his own and by a mistake, Ohno fell down on something as cold as ice beneath him and when the light was opened once again, how he freaked out to see his girlfriend was underneath him, but…
            “Naomi!!” he screamed so hard for her name, and he heard the sound of a can fell down on the floor close to him. He opened his eyes once again when he felt somebody touching his face.
            “Are you okay, darling??”  he heard Naomi called for him as she was gently touching his face. He pushed her hand away immediately when he remembered how hideous she was the night he fell on her body. Her face was buried in blood, scars were all over her face. She doesn’t look like how she usually was anymore, and it had frightens him too much. He sealed his eyes shut for a short time as he tries to erase all those thought away from his mind…
            ‘I am only hallucinating!’ he grumbled alone, but he still felt like it was real. He remembers that the house was so pretty on the outside but he doesn’t know anymore!!… “Ohno!” he heard his girlfriend were trying to wake him up. She gently caress his face when she looked at him starting to sweat on a very cold night.
            “What’s the matter, my love?” his girlfriend asked him. Ohno tries to breathe in regularly because he felt his heart were pounding so viciously before. Naomi wiped away the sweat that was falling down from his forehead with a piece of tissue and she moved his face to look at his direction, but he was still keeping his eyes shut. Naomi raised her eyebrow, ‘Did he had too much of it?’ she wondered alone when she saw the bag of ecstasy  fell on the ground close to him. She sighed on her own, “What’s the matter, love?’ she asked him again. She could feel his body was triggering from the fright he was having alone. She wondered if it was a bad dream? She gritted her teeth against each other and she gently kissed on his forehead with her tender lips. “It’s okay, Ohno love. The dreams would go away… The dreams would go away…” she said to him  gently  as   she  lightly  caress behind his back. Ohno wrapped his arms around her body when he slowly pulled himself away from her.
            He directly looked at her beautiful soft brown eyes and kissed on her lips, “Sorry, darling. It must be the ecstasy I have been taking for too much already,” he said to her, admitting that he was pretty high earlier. He doesn’t know what was the reason for him to be taking all of that but he guess it made him felt relieve doing all of the things that he wanted. He sighed and wrapped his arms around her body once again after a long tender kiss from her, how he doesn’t want to let her go. She was the only one who understands what he actually need in life. He felt her small arms wrapped around his torso and he gently kissed on her cheek. He sealed his eyes shut when the image of that house once again came back to his mind.
            Ohno was sure that he had seen the house somewhere before…. And it made him had the high eager to go to that place since it has came alive in his mind. Was his dream actually true, or it was just him thinking too much of stupid things?
            Ohno smiled slyly after a long thought of what actually came to his mind… If that house was actually real, could everything that he sees inside were there also? He had a small laughter and made Naomi wonder what is actually in his mind. She knew how wild can her boyfriend be, but she doesn’t know what is actually in his head at that time anymore…  “Ohno Satoshi…” she called for his name and he only nodded his head from the back. He pulsed her away when he looked at her once again…
            “Do you want to do something crazy tonight?” he asked her sarcastically. Naomi lifted her eyebrow up and wondered what is on his mind. Ohno Satoshi can be wicked at times, but she wasn’t sure what is he thinking about anymore… Ohno doesn’t know where could Sakurai be at that time, but he was sure that he was somewhere naked inside the house with his girlfriend and he wanted to have the good time on the last day of them being right there in St. Valentine. Naomi grabbed his hand, as she was really inquisitive with what Ohno have in his mind…
            “What do you mean?” she asked him, curiously… but only Ohno only smiled to her devilishly.

            Inside the car as the three of them were on their way back to their house, Matsumoto was driving the car and Aiba was sitting right by his side holding the warm coffee he had bought before they left the diner earlier. “And I know that you are still thinking about her!” Aiba teased on Matsumoto who was concentrating on driving the car.  It was only a black Ford, from what year he wasn’t sure, but he was certain that the car isn’t really a brand new. Matsumoto gave a signal as he wanted to go to the left and he turned his gaze towards Aiba sharply when he felt slightly irritated with his annoying action that night. He sighed when he cought a glipse of Aiba’s face that was still smiling to him, “And so, what if I like her.  Does it even have any problem with you?” he asked Aiba sarcastically after he made his turn and continue his driving ahead. The snow was falling down as the viper of the car was turned on. He turned on the radio inside the car as he already find Aiba being too irritating that night.
            Aiba furrowed his eyebrow and turned his gaze towards Ninomiya that was busy playing his game at the back of the car, “Oh! Look Ninomi! He isn’t listening to us now!” he grumbled to Ninomiya and Ninomiya could only laughed with how childish Aiba sound when he was whining about what Matsumoto doing to him. Ninomiya smiled to Aiba when he noticed that he was looking at him from the side mirror. He leaned back on the seat he was sitting on and return his glance to Aiba and shkes his head from side to side, “Maybe he is already bored of you keep on talking about this matters since just now,”  Ninomiya answered Aiba straight. Matsumoto reached his hand back when he high five Ninomiya for being on his side for once that day.
             Matsumoto knew that Ninomiya has to play along with Aiba, but hey, Ninomiya is one of the smarted boy in their University.  For how long can Ninomiya last to talk like an idiot with a man who he was certain isn’t stupid enough?  Ninomiya is a man who got brain to think, not to fiddle around like he doesn’t care about anybody.  Ninomiya smiled when he accept Matsumoto’s offer and highed five him back.
            “Thanks, man,”  Matsumoto said to him and Aiba was in his disbelieve when his jaw fell down open, he turned around and looked at Ninomiya with a pitiful face, “How could you be doing this to me!” he said to Ninomiya as he began to ‘sob’ like a small child. Ninomiya only laughed at Aiba’s action.Ninomiya lifted his hands up telling him that he only believe in what’s real and he turned his gaze towards the road they were taking to go back home. He looked at those house were slightly dim since it was too early for them to be preparing for Christmas, even though the bed of snow has fallen down everywhere. He was sure that the street was cleaned up earlier, or else there won’t be any vehicle to be moving around this place at all. He inhaled a deep breath and sighed on his own, ‘If only Christmas is like this  back at home…’ he said all alone when he remembered his luck to be the youngest son in his family.
            He has an enter brother who is a total jerk, but still the precious one to everybody’s eyes. A sister that always thinks how beautiful she was when once she was announce as the Queen of th e Autumn Ball back in the year 2011 and his parents? They seems to be enjoying doing what they enjoyed the most inn their life anyway. To be doing nothing at all. Ninomiya sighed when he thought how lucky he was to be sent away to the Unversity that was far away from Hokkaido since it was in  Tokyo. He doesn’t know if he would be delighted to see them once again in the future time, but how can he refuse since they are still the people who has given him life…
            Ninomiya gently touched on the window beside him… ‘I’m glad my life is this way…’ he said in his heart when in a sudden,  Matsumoto accidently ran against something on the road that he didn’t see and made the car they were sitting in jerked for a short time. Ninomiya grabbed a hold of himself when he heard both Aiba and Matsumoto screamed slightly as they were in shock, “What the hell, man!” Aiba screamed alone as Matsumoto pulled his car to the side when he thought he had ran against something living.
            The three of them walked out from the car and it seems like they were at a place that was too dark and quiet that night… Ninomiya felt a sudden chill went down her spine when he turned his gaze towards Matsumoto, “I don’t think so there’s anything,” he said to him when he looked at Matsumoto looking tremendously nervous. Matsumoto went to the back of the car and he kicked around the saw that was covering some part of the road...
            “How could it be nothing!?”  Matsumoto said because the impact was pretty big a moment ago. It may have seen like it was nothing but he knew that there is something!  Matsumoto furrowed his eyebrow and he found a wooden log on the ground and he picked up with his bear hand. “It was all your matter!” he shouted when he felt really infuriated with it. Heknew the woden log away and walked back towards his car.  Aiba turned  his gaze towards Ninomiya when he felt slightly strange with Matsumoto’s behavior suddenly…
            “Now, what’s up with him?” he asked Ninomiya when Ninomiya doesn’t know how to answer him and only lifted his shoulder up, “If only I know… but it could be because of you…” he said to Aiba.  Aiba looked at Ninomiya and lifted his shoulder up, “Why is it because of me?!” he asked Ninomiya and looked at him walking back to the car. Aiba followed his lead and looked at the light from the car was turned on once again. Matsumoto started the car’s engine and waited for their arrival, but in his heart, he just felt like he want to leave them there. “Hurry up!” he grumbled as they both from outside the car was rushing towards the car.

            Ninomiya laughed when he heard Aiba was mocking Matsumoto with the incident that has happen earlier. He took a sip of his warm milk tea, and wipes his lips with the cloth that was given to him earlier when the beautiful young girl came and sent them their food. Aiba took a bite of his burger, he turned his gaze towards Matsumoto while chewing on the food inside his mouth, “And you think we didn’t see how red your too fair face were blushing?!” he said to Matsumoto.

Matsumoto drink his coffee.

            “Are you okay, darling??”  he heard Naomi called for him as she was gently touching his face. He pushed her hand away immediately when he remembered how hideous she was the night he fell on her body. Her face was buried in blood, scars were all over her face. She doesn’t look like how she usually was anymore, and it had frightens him too much. He sealed his eyes shut for a short time as he tries to erase all those thought away from his mind…
            ‘I am only hallucinating!’ he grumbled alone, but he still felt like it was real. He remembers that the house was so pretty on the outside but he doesn’t know anymore!!… “Ohno!” he heard his girlfriend were trying to wake him up. She gently caress his face when she looked at him starting to sweat on a very cold night.
            “What’s the matter, my love?” his girlfriend asked him. Ohno tries to breathe in regularly because he felt his heart were pounding so viciously before. Naomi wiped away the sweat that was falling down from his forehead with a piece of tissue and she moved his face to look at his direction, but he was still keeping his eyes shut. Naomi raised her eyebrow, ‘Did he had too much of it?’ she wondered alone when she saw the bag of ecstasy  fell on the ground close to him. She sighed on her own, “What’s the matter, love?’ she asked him again. She could feel his body was triggering from the fright he was having alone. She wondered if it was a bad dream? She gritted her teeth against each other and she gently kissed on his forehead with her tender lips. “It’s okay, Ohno love. The dreams would go away… The dreams would go away…” she said to him  gently  as   she  lightly  caress behind his back. Ohno wrapped his arms around her body when he slowly pulled himself away from her.
            He directly looked at her beautiful soft brown eyes and kissed on her lips, “Sorry, darling. It must be the ecstasy I have been taking for too much already,” he said to her, admitting that he was pretty high earlier. He doesn’t know what was the reason for him to be taking all of that but he guess it made him felt relieve doing all of the things that he wanted. He sighed and wrapped his arms around her body once again after a long tender kiss from her, how he doesn’t want to let her go. She was the only one who understands what he actually need in life. He felt her small arms wrapped around his torso and he gently kissed on her cheek. He sealed his eyes shut when the image of that house once again came back to his mind.
            Ohno was sure that he had seen the house somewhere before…. And it made him had the high eager to go to that place since it has came alive in his mind. Was his dream actually true, or it was just him thinking too much of stupid things?
            Ohno smiled slyly after a long thought of what actually came to his mind… If that house was actually real, could everything that he sees inside were there also? He had a small laughter and made Naomi wonder what is actually in his mind. She knew how wild can her boyfriend be, but she doesn’t know what is actually in his head at that time anymore…  “Ohno Satoshi…” she called for his name and he only nodded his head from the back. He pulsed her away when he looked at her once again…
            “Do you want to do something crazy tonight?” he asked her sarcastically. Naomi lifted her eyebrow up and wondered what is on his mind. Ohno Satoshi can be wicked at times, but she wasn’t sure what is he thinking about anymore… Ohno doesn’t know where could Sakurai be at that time, but he was sure that he was somewhere naked inside the house with his girlfriend and he wanted to have the good time on the last day of them being right there in St. Valentine. Naomi grabbed his hand, as she was really inquisitive with what Ohno have in his mind…
            “What do you mean?” she asked him, curiously… but only Ohno only smiled to her devilishly.

            Inside the car as the three of them were on their way back to their house, Matsumoto was driving the car and Aiba was sitting right by his side holding the warm coffee he had bought before they left the diner earlier. “And I know that you are still thinking about her!” Aiba teased on Matsumoto who was concentrating on driving the car.  It was only a black Ford, from what year he wasn’t sure, but he was certain that the car isn’t really a brand new. Matsumoto gave a signal as he wanted to go to the left and he turned his gaze towards Aiba sharply when he felt slightly irritated with his annoying action that night. He sighed when he cought a glipse of Aiba’s face that was still smiling to him, “And so, what if I like her.  Does it even have any problem with you?” he asked Aiba sarcastically after he made his turn and continue his driving ahead. The snow was falling down as the viper of the car was turned on. He turned on the radio inside the car as he already find Aiba being too irritating that night.
            Aiba furrowed his eyebrow and turned his gaze towards Ninomiya that was busy playing his game at the back of the car, “Oh! Look Ninomi! He isn’t listening to us now!” he grumbled to Ninomiya and Ninomiya could only laughed with how childish Aiba sound when he was whining about what Matsumoto doing to him. Ninomiya smiled to Aiba when he noticed that he was looking at him from the side mirror. He leaned back on the seat he was sitting on and return his glance to Aiba and shkes his head from side to side, “Maybe he is already bored of you keep on talking about this matters since just now,”  Ninomiya answered Aiba straight. Matsumoto reached his hand back when he high five Ninomiya for being on his side for once that day.
             Matsumoto knew that Ninomiya has to play along with Aiba, but hey, Ninomiya is one of the smarted boy in their University.  For how long can Ninomiya last to talk like an idiot with a man who he was certain isn’t stupid enough?  Ninomiya is a man who got brain to think, not to fiddle around like he doesn’t care about anybody.  Ninomiya smiled when he accept Matsumoto’s offer and highed five him back.
            “Thanks, man,”  Matsumoto said to him and Aiba was in his disbelieve when his jaw fell down open, he turned around and looked at Ninomiya with a pitiful face, “How could you be doing this to me!” he said to Ninomiya as he began to ‘sob’ like a small child. Ninomiya only laughed at Aiba’s action.Ninomiya lifted his hands up telling him that he only believe in what’s real and he turned his gaze towards the road they were taking to go back home. He looked at those house were slightly dim since it was too early for them to be preparing for Christmas, even though the bed of snow has fallen down everywhere. He was sure that the street was cleaned up earlier, or else there won’t be any vehicle to be moving around this place at all. He inhaled a deep breath and sighed on his own, ‘If only Christmas is like this  back at home…’ he said all alone when he remembered his luck to be the youngest son in his family.
            He has an enter brother who is a total jerk, but still the precious one to everybody’s eyes. A sister that always thinks how beautiful she was when once she was announce as the Queen of th e Autumn Ball back in the year 2011 and his parents? They seems to be enjoying doing what they enjoyed the most inn their life anyway. To be doing nothing at all. Ninomiya sighed when he thought how lucky he was to be sent away to the Unversity that was far away from Hokkaido since it was in  Tokyo. He doesn’t know if he would be delighted to see them once again in the future time, but how can he refuse since they are still the people who has given him life…
            Ninomiya gently touched on the window beside him… ‘I’m glad my life is this way…’ he said in his heart when in a sudden,  Matsumoto accidently ran against something on the road that he didn’t see and made the car they were sitting in jerked for a short time. Ninomiya grabbed a hold of himself when he heard both Aiba and Matsumoto screamed slightly as they were in shock, “What the hell, man!” Aiba screamed alone as Matsumoto pulled his car to the side when he thought he had ran against something living.
            The three of them walked out from the car and it seems like they were at a place that was too dark and quiet that night… Ninomiya felt a sudden chill went down her spine when he turned his gaze towards Matsumoto, “I don’t think so there’s anything,” he said to him when he looked at Matsumoto looking tremendously nervous. Matsumoto went to the back of the car and he kicked around the saw that was covering some part of the road...
            “How could it be nothing!?”  Matsumoto said because the impact was pretty big a moment ago. It may have seen like it was nothing but he knew that there is something!  Matsumoto furrowed his eyebrow and he found a wooden log on the ground and he picked up with his bear hand. “It was all your matter!” he shouted when he felt really infuriated with it. Heknew the woden log away and walked back towards his car.  Aiba turned  his gaze towards Ninomiya when he felt slightly strange with Matsumoto’s behavior suddenly…
            “Now, what’s up with him?” he asked Ninomiya when Ninomiya doesn’t know how to answer him and only lifted his shoulder up, “If only I know… but it could be because of you…” he said to Aiba.  Aiba looked at Ninomiya and lifted his shoulder up, “Why is it because of me?!” he asked Ninomiya and looked at him walking back to the car. Aiba followed his lead and looked at the light from the car was turned on once again. Matsumoto started the car’s engine and waited for their arrival, but in his heart, he just felt like he want to leave them there. “Hurry up!” he grumbled as they both from outside the car was rushing towards the car.
            Ninomiya and Aiba get inside the car, it’s just this time, Aiba pushed Ninomiya to sit in front and he sat alone at the back.  Ninomiya narrowed his eyebrow but without arguing, he just gets inside the car. ‘Yeah, whatever,’ Ninomiya said in his heart.  The two of them closed their door and Matsumoto get into gear and drove away from there. It was a dead silent inside the car and it seems like Aiba had fallen to sleep at the back seat and Matsumoto was concerntrating on his driving as he wanted to reach home as soon as he possibly can. Ninomiya’s eyes was only wondering around the darkness they were going into… He sighed on his own… Aiba was already snoring at the back seat. It seems like he was pretty tired from disturbing on people’s life…

            ‘It’s really quiet this short cut at night…’ he said alone… At the end, Ninomiya decided to seal his eyes for a while with the sound of the radio was still terrorizing the silent inside the car and he wanted to close his eyes but somehow, how he felt his heart was pounding suddenly when there isn’t any reason at all… Ninomiya furrowed his eyebrow when he felt uncomfortable at all. He touched his chest alone when he felt his heart was palpitating faster than it usually does… “What’s all of this?’ he wondered alone… He felt uncertain at that time and finally, he decided to open his eyes…
            Suddenly, the bright light from a house was flashing against his eyes and made him sealed his eyes again for a while before he slowly opened his eyes once again… “Argh! What is that?!” he asked Matsumoto instantly when Matsumoto only lifted his shoulder up, “I think the light came from that house,” he pointed to the house on their right. Ninomiya turned his gaze to the side and looked at how beautiful the house was from the outside… with the roof of that house was covered in snow, and the light was turned on to brighten it up… it seems like they are already prepared for Christmas…
            “Wow… That is beautiful…” Ninomiya said as he was captivated by the beauty of it… They didn’t actually take this path for their regular days… but tonight, Matsumoto had decided to turn the other way round to go back home.. His eyes were still looking at that house and he wondered who would make it so beautiful like that… but… should he be brother more about that??? It’s only a beautiful house…
