New Year’s Day Kissing

Ryo and Kagome sat in the living room, shocked.

“What?!” Kagome cried. Michiko held out her hand,
grinning. The fat pearl on her ring caught the living room
light.

“We’re getting married again!” she said. Kagome
shuddered.

“Why?!” she asked. Her mother sheepishly giggled.

“Yesterday,” she said.

“On New Year’s Eve?” Ryo asked.

“Yes,” the parents said. Kagome stood up and walked out
of the room.

“Kagome-chan!” Ryo shouted as he ran after her. The
older couple looked at each other.

“Was it something I said?” Michiko asked. Hideko rubbed
on her shoulder.

“Give them time— again,” he said.

——–

Ryo knocked on Kagome’s bedroom door.

“Kagome-chan!” he shouted. “What’s wrong? Come
out and talk to me!” He backed up when the door opened.
Kagome looked at him with frozen eyes.

“This is a disaster,” she growled. Ryo gave her a blank
stare. His girlfriend snorted and walked into her room. He followed
her to her bed. Kagome sat down frowning and folded her arms across
her chest.

“I thought this was what we wanted,” Ryo said.
“Didn’t we want them together?”

“Yeah,” she said. “But they’re going too
fast!”

“What?” her boyfriend asked. Kagome flopped back onto
her bed.

“I wanted us to get married first,” she said.
“Then they could get married.” She put her hand to her
forehead.

“This is bad! Now we can’t get married!”

Ryo sat, blinking. “Wait… You want us to get
married?”

“Yes!”

“So… are you proposing to me?”

“Yes… I mean, no… I mean… Gah!”
Kagome sat up and groaned.

“Not yet! Cane we get back to the problem at hand?” she
asked. Ryo patted her shoulders.

“Right,” he said. “What are do you suggest we
do?” Kagome sighed.

“I don’t know,” she said. “Delay them or
something. I don’t know.” Ryo pulled her into his arms.

“We’ll think of something,” he said in a low voice.
Kagome glanced up at him.

“Can you hold me like this for a little bit longer?”
she asked. “It calms me down and helps me think.” He
rested his chin atop her head.

“Sure,” her boyfriend replied. “Take all the time
you need.”

“Thank you,” Kagome whispered.

“You’re welcome,” Ryo said back.
