Chapter 4

“Sho, my parents expected you to be living with me for a couple of months already. So we'll need to move your stuff into my place sometime, but secretly.” Ohno said to Sho while driving home.
“Look, Ohno-san – ”
“Satoshi, remember you have to call me Satoshi. ” Ohno reminded Sho.
“Right, Satoshi, our agreement is I continue to pretend to be your – lover in exchange for you paying for my tuition. I understand that living in your place is part of the deal, but that doesn't mean you'll be providing everything for me. I will pay you rent and food expenses.” Sho said earnestly. He didn't want to feel like he's selling himself for money. He needed to retain his dignity.
“Don't be silly. It's nothing.” Ohno didn't think it's necessary.
“It may be nothing to you, but it's important to me. I am not the type of person who likes to take advantage of people and I don't like to owe people anything. I will pay for what I get.” Sho insisted.
“Fine, if that's what you want. You're the first person I know that turn down free lunch.” Ohno didn't argue further. But he already started to feel that Sho was different from all other friends he had known all his life.
When they arrived home, Ohno intentionally took Sho by his hand and walked into the living room where his parents were.
“You're back. Good timing, lunch is almost ready.” Ohno's mother greeted them with a smile as they walked in.
Sho smiled back. Seeing Ohno's mother again is his only incentive to come back to this house. He had a warm feeling around her.
“Why don't you two go wash up and then come back for lunch? I'm going to tell the maid to set the table.” She said before she went towards the kitchen.
Sho followed Ohno back to their bedroom. This will be the place he'll be living in for the foreseeable future. Now that he had time to digest what's going on, he suddenly felt a little scared. Living with a family of total strangers that he had met less than one day ago. What had he gotten himself into?
“Ohno – Satoshi, there's something I need to state clearly in advance. We are pretending to be lovers only. We can show a certain degree of closeness in front of your parents, but there can be absolutely no physical contact when they're not around. Agreed?” Sho felt he needed to make his position clear.
“Are you kidding me? Of course I agree. I was going to say the same to you before you make any advances on me.” Ohno replied. The last sentence was only a little tease he wanted to make on Sho. He didn't think the younger indifferent man would actually do such things.
Ohno expected Sho to make a big fist on his remarks, but on the contrary, the other man stayed calm and just took a piece of paper from his backpack and handed it to Ohno.
“Here is my work schedules until school starts. I suppose my lover should know about them. I will give you my class schedules after they are finalized. Hope it won’t be necessary.” Sho said casually. “And, Ohno-san, not everyone will jump on you even though you are everything one could dream of.” Sho walked into the bathroom after making his statements.
Ohno was taken aback by Sho's last comment. Ever since adolescence, he had been approached by so many girls, even boys, who wanted to make a move on him. He could date whoever he wanted to and was never rejected. Sho was the first person who had given him a cold shoulder. He was a little hurt, and thought that Sho was, weird. But the younger man's stubbornness has developed an interest in Ohno to find out what kind of person Sho really was.
He looked at the paper that Sho gave him, and was shocked at what he’s seeing. Sho was working two jobs from eight o’clock in the morning till ten at night on most days.
“Are you serious?!” Ohno lifted up the piece of paper and asked Sho when the man came out of the bathroom. “Do you do anything other than working?”
Sho was amused by Ohno’s surprise look. “Which part of me does not look serious?”
Ohno shook his head. “That won’t do. You can’t always be working. You have to be at home sometimes. My parents won’t buy it otherwise. They know I’ll never let my lover to be away from me all the time.” Ohno demanded.
“Sorry, but that’s the way it is. Has it ever crossed your mind that some people do need to work to earn a living?” Sho said sarcastically.
“You don't need to anymore. You live here now.” Since Sho lived in his house, naturally all the expenses were on him, Ohno thought.
“Excuse me! I may be living here, but that doesn’t mean I have to depend on you, and I won’t. End of discussion.”
“What’s the big deal? You’re so wacky.” Although not terribly happy at the outcome of the discussion, Ohno had no intention to drag this on. “Then at least quit your night job. Consider you're hired by me at night. Don't argue with me. If my parents don't believe you're my lover, then you're not doing your job.” The rich man still liked to have the final say of the matter.
“Fine. Then I'll only pay you rent. Food is on you as compensation for making me quit the night job.” Sho wanted to make it clear to Ohno that he did not intend to take any advantage of him.
“Whatever – ” Ohno didn't really care. He just needed to do whatever it took to avoid any suspicion from his parents. “By the way, we can go to pick up your things this afternoon. My parents are going to play golf later on and they won't see us bringing your stuff in.”
“Can't do. I have to work after lunch. I've already taken time off this morning to go to school office. But we can go later tonight. I have to terminate my lease there, can't afford to pay double rent.”
“That works. I can tell my parents we're going on a date tonight. Yes, that's it. But we'll have to sneak in your things after they go to sleep.” Ohno hoped that the more time his parents saw him together with Sho, the sooner they will truly believe his story and leave.
Lunch was delicious. Ohno's mother's cooking was exquisite. Sho didn't recall when was the last time he had such a good homemade meal. Sho asked for second which made her very happy. Ohno, on the other hand, didn't seem to care about the food that much. Ohno paid more attention to other things like touching Sho's hands, giving him random gazes or eating food from his bowl. Sho played along but tried hard not to show awkwardness.
After lunch Ohno and Sho left home together. Sho went to work and Ohno met up with Nino at their usual meeting place. He had promised to fill Nino in on what happened. He was fed up with the whole situation himself and Nino is the only person he could vent to.
“Hey dude, you look happy. That's a good sign. Your parents left?" Nino greeted his friend.
"Happy? Hardly. My parents are still here. Worse yet, they are living in the villa now." Ohno sat down beside his friend and sighed.
"Living with you? How come?" Nino jumped up from his seat and looked at Ohno, who had his eyes closed and head down.
"They said they wanted to have some family time with us." Ohno raised his voice to emphasize the last word.
"Us? You mean, you and -- Sho?" Nino opened his mouth wide in surprise.
Ohno nodded. "Who else?" He then briefly summarized what happened at the dinner and how Sho spent the night.
"You're lucky that Sho agreed to go home with you last night. It's not part of the original agreement and he could have just walked away. Then you'll truly be doomed." Nino was amazed how Ohno seemed to always get his way somehow. Do rich people have better luck as well?
"So what now? Your parents are still in your place and your agreement ended with him leaving this morning." Nino puzzled. "You aren't going to give in to them, are you?"
"Hell no! I will lose all my credibility if I give in now. I made a new deal with Sho this morning." Ohno explained.
"A new deal?" Nino was getting more curious.
"Yes, he will be living in my place for as long as my parents stay and continue to pretend to be my lover."
"And in return?"
"I'm paying his tuition for this semester. I overheard him pleading to the school office about delaying payment, but got rejected. So I offered to pay for him."
"Ah, no wonder he'd agreed. That's probably the only incentive that would make him even consider this." Nino let out a sigh.
Ohno sensed a little sadness in Nino's tone, but didn't pursue it. "We will need to sneak his things into my room later tonight without my parents knowing it. Gosh, what am I doing? I feel like a thief in my own home."
"You brought this on to yourself, man. If you listen to your parents and marry one of those ladies, you wouldn't have gotten into this mess." Nino teased his friend.
"Please, Nino. You should know better. I just hope they will leave soon. Now I have to keep up the act with Sho at home. I can't even hold parties or bring my girlfriends back home anymore." Ohno felt frustrated.
"May be that's a good thing, you know. Makes you discipline yourself a bit." Nino laughed. "And at least Sho doesn't need to drop out of school now." Nino whispered the last sentence to himself. He began to feel grateful on how the whole thing had played out.

To Be Continued....

I love the way Sho was trying to keep control of the situation and tried his best in keeping his integrity intact.

and love the squabbles, they sounded like they're already married. xD

Ohno is still a very much a self-conceited rich man's son. Which is what makes it more interesting when he started to change his behavior, in which I assume he will... but if so... I'm keen on knowing what exactly changed him. and how will it affect Sho too... so many possibilities <3

Looking forward to the next update, dearie~ *chuus*
