Tsuzuki and Anna talk about what to do next now that they are in love and in a relationship.
Chapter Twelve: Lotte Ghana:
Winter rain --
The field stubble
The next morning brought more rain. Anna and Tsuzuki sat on her futon talking about what was to come next.
“We have to talk,” Anna stated.
“Yeah,” Tsuzuki agreed. Silence passed for a moment.
“We’re in a relationship now.”
“Yes, I know.” Tsuzuki gently held Anna’s hand.
“I could get in trouble at work for this,” he whispered.
“I know,” she said back. “What do you want to do?” Tsuzuki held her hand tighter.
“I want you,” he admitted.
“So do I,” she said back. They were silent for a moment. Tsuzuki pressed his lips together.
“We can’t tell anyone,” he blurted out. Anna nodded as if she had just swallowed something bitter.
“Nobody,” she echoed.
“Nobody,” Tsuzuki repeated. Anna held hi hand as well.
“Okay then,” she said in a serious tone. “It’ll be our secret.” Tsuzuki nodded.
“Yes,” he agreed. “Our secret.” Both went silent again. Anna turned to her lover as a nervous thought entered her mind.
“How can I guarantee your silence?” she asked. Tsuzuki raised an eyebrow at her.
“Isn’t my word enough?” he asked. His beloved shook her head.
“How can I be sure you won’t let it slip somehow?”
“I won’t! I promise!” Uneasy silence followed. Tsuzuki sighed.
“Come on,” he pleaded. “What do I have to do to convince you otherwise?” Anna thought about that for a moment. She looked him straight in the eye.
“Kiss me,” she whispered. Tsuzuki said nothing at first. He only leaned in close and softly kissed her on the lips. His beloved kissed him back. Soft desire began to glow between them. Tsuzuki lightly pushed her back on the futon. Anna took him into his arms. He gently slipped hands under her Rolling Stones t-shirt as he pushed his tongue into her waiting mouth. The warmth of her body sent an arousing shock to his own. He wanted this.
Tsuzuki played with Anna’s chest for a little bit. She moaned happily in his mouth. Tsuzuki slowly rolled off her shirt and threw it aside. He unhooked her lacy, black and read bra and threw that aside. Anna reached up and untied his tie. Then, she unbuttoned his shirt in a light, butterfly way. Her lover moaned as he rubbed up against her body. Her heat against his bare skin made him hunger for more.
His hands traveled down to her short, light brown skirt. He slowly unfastened and unzipped it. Anna trembled as she felt her skirt leaving her body. She reached forward and unzipped his trousers. Tsuzuki played with her hair as she did so. Anna forced herself to focus and keep stripping him down. She threw aside his pants and started on his boxers. They landed on her skirt. Tsuzuki rolled her tan panties off and threw them down. Anna slowly opened her legs to let him begin the next round with her.
Asato and Anna sat under their cherry tree, looking around. The yellow-golden grass looked like something out of a Van Gough painting. Asato glanced at his angel. She looked at peace with the nature around her. Her beauty intrigued him. He just had to learn more about her.
“Anna,” he said. The girl glanced up at him.
“Uh-hm,” she replied.
“Where did you come from originally, if you don’t mind me asking?” Anna gave him a sweet little smile.
“I came from Tokyo,” she said, politely.
“Yes, I moved here in the mountains to take care of my grandmother.”
“What’s wrong with her?” Anna began to look sad.
“She’s dying. She doesn’t have long to live,” she said. Tears began to form in her eyes.
“Grandmother is the only family I have left,” she went on. “My parents died when I was four. My aunt died last year. So, I’ve always been on my own.” The girl tried to keep herself together.
“Grandmother has always been so good to me. I don’t know what I’d do if she died.” Anna broke down crying. Asato gently wiped away her tears. The girl looked up at him. Her new friend gave her a gentle smile.
“It’s okay,” he whispered. “You have me now.” Anna was too choked up in her sorrow to speak. Asato leaned in and gave her a small kiss on the lips. Anna slowly kissed back. Anna slowly kissed back. Their cherry blossom tree rained its pink petals upon them.
“Hey!” Rihoko called as she returned home from her classes. “I’m home!” The young mother unwillingly opened her roommate’s bedroom door.
“Oh shit!” the couple mumbled in shock. Rihoko’s eyes widened in surprise as she looked into the room.
“Oh…” she mumbled. “O-kay… uh… I didn’t expect this…” Anna and Tsuzuki tried desperately to hide their nakedness in shocked silence. Opps…
