Tsuzuki starts to complain about the rain when Anna lying asleep in her futon lightens up his mood. Another lemon for everyone.
To meet one's lover summer is indeed the right season. True, the nights are very short, and dawn creeps up before one has had a wink of sleep. Since all the lattices have been left open, one can lie and look out at the garden in the cool morning air. There are still a few endearments to exchange before the man takes his leave, and the lovers are murmuring to each other when suddenly there is a loud noise. For a moment they are certain that they have been discovered; but it is only the caw of a crow flying past in the garden. In the winter, when it is very cold and one lies buried under the bedclothes listening to one's lover's endearments, it is delightful to hear the booming of a temple gong, which seems to come from the bottom of a deep well. The first cry of the birds, whose beaks are still tucked under their wings, is also strange and muffled. Then one bird after another takes up the call. How pleasant it is to lie there listening as the sounds become clearer and clearer!

July 4th, 2009. It’s raining again this morning. Tsuzuki drew back Anna’s deep red curtains and bamboo blinds to peek out. Cue the typical puppy having his sweets taken away from him.
“On come on!” the Shinigami complained. “More rain? You’re got to be kidding me!” Tsuzuki pressed his forehead against the glass. His breath formed a fog. Today looked like the pits already.
Suddenly, a tiny rustle in the sheets captured his puppy ears. Tsuzuki glanced up behind him. An angelic goddess lied asleep in her futon. Her back was facing him. The sheets and her russet locks hid the scars on the skin. Tsuzuki’s puppy features vanished as he beheld this sleeping goddess. A smile invaded his face. He turned back to the window.
“Not that bad,” he said to himself. Tsuzuki closed up everything and crawled back over the futon. Anna was lost in a peaceful dream. Tsuzuki quietly behold her. She looked like the time she was dead. The beloved looked more asleep than dead then. As if in a heavy dream like right now, almost. Tsuzuki felt tempted to kiss her on the lips. Hell, he ached to wake her up. But, the Shinigami opted against it. Why turn a beautiful goddess into a raging demon? Tsuzuki decided to wait this out. “/Anna-chan…/” he thought. His fingers slowly reached forward to touch her cheek. He hesitated for a moment. The Shinigami pondered this course of action. It seemed so inviting…
Right then, Anna began to stir awake. Tsuzuki nearly held his breath. His beloved slowly opened her eyes and saw the Shinigami. A warm smile spread onto his face.
“Good morning,” he whispered. Anna smiled back at him.
“Morning,” she said back. Tsuzuki softly caressed her cheek with his fingers.
“I’m not working at the moment,” he offered. Anna’s smiled filled with a hint of mischief.
“Oh really?” she asked. Tsuzuki nodded at her with a wink.
“Uh-huh,” he replied on top of her. His fingers found their way to her hair again. Anna felt the playful heat creep up her spine and spread through her limbs. The lusty, excited butterflies fluttered in her stomach.
“So…” she began. “How long before you have to work?” Tsuzuki kissed her on the lips, quickly.
“All morning if you like,” he whispered at her lips. Anna curled her toes under the sheets.
“Ooo,” she said. “You mean it?”
“Yeah,” her boyfriend said with a nod. Anna thought about this for a moment. The woman licked her lips.
“Well,” she replied. “What should we do now?” Tsuzuki smiled at that question.
“I’ve got just the thing,” he said. Anna giggled.
“Show me,” she began to say. But before she could speak, Tsuzuki kissed her on the lips. Anna giggled and kissed him back. The Shinigami slipped under the sheets with her. The woman’s body began to feel so light and feather-like as Asato gently embraced her into his loving arms. Her lover tenderly wiggled his tongue into her mouth. Anna moaned as she felt it caressing her own. She slowly drew him closer to her. Tsuzuki allowed his curious hands to stray down to her full and awaiting breasts. As the kissing picked up its sexy pace, the Shinigami let his hands fondle her breasts. A muzzled cry escaped from Anna’s mouth into his. The sound made Tsuzuki’s hands deepen their massage on her bosom. However, the pent-up desire pushed the craving to new, powerful heights. The Shinigami’s hands began squeezing on the breasts like a soft toy. Anna let off another muzzled moan of pleasure. Unable to hold back, she gracefully spread her legs to invite him inside.
Asato and Anna sat under their bold cherry tree, kissing. They had been getting quite close for the past couple of days. Yet, innocence blinded them to the raging storm of hormones fast approaching their blossoming love life. The young couple broke off the kiss to catch their breath for a moment. Asato happened to look out at the view and notice a lake. The water looked filled with cool, precious gems. It beauty was enhanced by the sun. Temptation opened her blouse to young Asato. He looked over at his girl.
“Hey Anna,” the boy spoke up. She turned and eyed him.
“Yes,” she said. Her boy gently took her by the hands.
“Let’s go swimming,” he said. Anna eyed him in a peculiar way.
“Swimming?” she asked. “Why?” The boy didn’t answer. He just got up and raced over to the edge of the lake. He slid his white t-shirt as if it was just a normal routine. Unbeknownst to him, Anna sat under their cherry tree, watching Asato with cherry-coated cheeks. Her heart went into double time in her developed, pristine chest. She almost unconsciously placed her hands neatly over her heart.
“Oh wow!” Anna thought. “I never knew how broad his shoulders were. Of that he had such a… tasty body…” The girl forced herself to look away with her candy red cheeks. She tried to block out any new sexual thoughts about her gorgeous friend in her mind. The harder she tried, the more they increased. A sudden shockwave raced through her body as she felt herself getting wet in her panties. The poor girl didn’t know how to handle it.
Asato, meanwhile, was blissfully unaware of what was going on. He had long discarded his shirt to the ground. Now, the boy slowly walked into the water. At waist deep level, Asato turned back to his special friend. He noticed her in a right fix. The boy raised an eyebrow at her.
“Something wrong?” he questioned. Anna jerked her head up at him.
“No, no!” she yelped. “I’m good, really!” Asato began to smile.
“Come on in! It’s great!” he said. Anna looked away with her red cheeks.
“I’m not sure,” she mumbled. Asato looked at her like a pleading little puppy.
“Oh come on,” he said. “This will be fun!” Anna still watched him as she sat. The boy tried again.
“Look,” he said. “I won’t do anything bad to you.” The girl only peered at him.
“You promise?” she asked. Asato nodded.
“Promise!” he boomed. “Okay?” His friend considered the offer for a moment. Then, she rose to her feet.
“Well…okay,” Anna said. “But turn away.” Asato nodded.
“Sure,” he said. She made a face at him.
“I’m serious!” she barked.
“Right, right!” Asato replied. “I’ll look away!” The boy turned his head away from the girl. Anna slowly breathed in and moved closer to their tree. She composed her courage long enough to take her crane-designed, gold and red oni into her youthful hands. The girl closed her eyes as she pulled it apart inch by inch. Her kimono popped open like a flower in bloom. Anna opened her eyes a little bit. She found herself clutching her own obi. An odd, strong sense of relief flooded her. “Not bad,” she thought. Then, she continued to disrobe.
Asato waited in the water with his head turned away. Seems innocent, yeah? Not so much. Curiosity and hormones are always conspiring together. Today would be no different. The longer the wait, the more compelled Asato felt to take a peek. Yet, that would be so tasteless. She would hate him for breaking his promise. But, it wouldn’t kill him for taking a quick look. His conscience and budding libido dueled each other in his head. The libido won out. Asato took a moment to reason. “One peek wouldn’t hurt,” he thought. “Just look and turn away. That’s it.” The boy gathered up his nerve by counting to ten in head before shifting his eyes towards their tree. Anna’s rich red silk kimono was sliding down off of its owner’s body. Asato’s pupils shrank at the site before him. The view wasn’t good enough at the moment, but he eyed long, creamy white legs and a small figure. Red slowly invaded his cheeks as he looked away like lighting. “Did I just see… what I thought I saw?” Asato thought. Despite the cool waters around his waist, he felt himself stirring awake between his legs.
“Okay, you look now,” Anna called. Her friend slowly turned his head back to her. The red in his cheeks deepened and spread faster. Anna stood before him with equally red cheeks. She had a nice figure. He saw those pretty legs again in a better view. Anna’s body looked tiny and cute like a typical sixteen-year-old girl. Her curved hips and perky breasts made her look tasty. She had Kanji burned into her wrists, however. But yet, they only heightened her desirable quality. Her flirty pink and white bra and panties sealed the deal. Anna’s eyes shifted away from her gorgeous friend.
“Oh, this is embarrassing!” she blurted out in a hurry. Asato quickly shook his head at her.
“No, no!” he blurted out, “It’s fine. Just come in with me, please.” Anna swallowed a small lump in her throat.
“Okay…” she mumbled. Anna walked forward and descended into the water with Asato. The boy’s imagination went into overdrive as the water soaked the girl’s bra and panties. In seconds, they were just inches from each other. The moment had built up so much between them. Something needed to give.
“Okay…” Anna spoke up. “We’re here.”
“Yeah,” Asato agreed, nodding. A moment of silence rode of them. The boy broke down and kissed her on the lips. Anna kissed him back. Asato tenderly drew the girl into his arms. She moaned as she wiggled her tongue past his lips. Her friend slowly parted his mouth to let her tongue further in. He moaned as he playfully nibbled on her lower lip. The multiple kisses opened the door for some harder “affection.”
Anna’s hands went from Asato’s shoulder, past his bare chest, and down into his jeans and boxers. The boy felt the blood rushing in his body. He reached out and playfully fondled on Anna’s breasts. Both sexy friends moaned in each other’s mouths as they kept on kissing. So much could boil over.
But, they only managed to stay at that point. Hard to grasp why. Restraint? Lack of knowledge? It’s unfolding, hang in there. These things love to unfold in their own time.
Tsuzuki collapsed next to Anna, panting. Her beloved shut her eyes as she smiled to herself.
“How was that for a rainy morning?” the Shinigami asked as his gaze stayed on the ceiling.
“Mmm…” Anna murmured. They held the sappy-sweet, silent afterglow to themselves for a long time. Tsuzuki finally sat up in the futon.
“I’m gonna take a shower,” he said. Anna’s eyes yanked wide open.
“What?” she asked. “Why?” The Shinigami chuckled.
“A cold shower,” he reasoned. Then, Tsuzuki disappeared into the bathroom. It took Anna a second to get it.
“Oh,” she said, dumbly. A silly laugh followed behind. That good, huh?
