Summary: Ohno's cousin paid a visit to the family, which made Ohno rethink his true feelings for Sho.

Chapter 11

It was a big party. There were more than a hundred guests invited. The ball room in the villa was packed. Everyone was dressed in formal attire, drinking champagne and chatting with one another. On the long tables near the far corner placed plates and plates of gourmet food. Everything was prepared and served as an orderly manner, showing that Nishimura and his staff must have done this many times.

Sho bought another suit similar to his previous one with the credit card Ohno gave him. He felt bad about having to spend more of Ohno’s money. He had decided that he would not take this suit with him when he left, regardless of whether Ohno would have any use of it. He just didn’t want to take anything that didn’t belong to him in the first place.

Not used to being in such formal environment, Sho clearly was nervous and uneasy. He was introduced to some of the guests who are closed family friends of the Ohno's. Ohno's father insisted that Sho would be introduced only as a 'friend' and 'classmates' of Ohno and not as his 'boyfriend', which was what both young men preferred anyway. Surprisingly Ohno's father did asked him to join in some conversations with his business associates which topics he could relate to and enjoyed.

"Boring, isn't it?" Ohno approached Sho with a class of champagne in one hand and a plate full of smoked salmon crackers on the other. "Want some?"

Sho smiled and shook his head. "It's actually not that bad."

"For you may be, at least you can talk to those people about economy, business." Ohno said before putting a cracker into his mouth. He continued after swallowing it. "No one here talks about topics that I’m interested in."

Ohno's gesture made Sho chuckled. "Why didn't you hold an arts party then? You can exhibit your art pieces at the same time."

"Hey, that's a great idea! Why didn't I think of that before?!" Ohno seemed to be excited about the idea and raised his glass of champagne towards Sho. "Cheers, you shall be my guest of honor."

"Satoshi-kun -- " A voice came from behind them calling out Ohno's name.

Ohno turned around and saw a tall, fine looking young man about the same age as him walking towards him with a big smile on his face.

"Jun-kun. When did you come back?" Ohno went up to greet the young man with an embrace.

"I just came back this morning for my spring break, just in time for the party. How are you doing buddy?" Jun said when they came apart.

Jun Matsumoto was Ohno's cousin from his mother's side, only a year younger than Ohno. Jun's family was also quite rich and his parents sent him to study in Europe since his last year in high school. Jun was openly gay and had several lovers, but none of them last more than a few months.

“Obasan told me a pretty astounding news about you.” Jun smirked. He took a glance at Sho who’s standing next to Ohno and asked his cousin. “And this handsome guy is – ”

“Oh, I’m sorry. This is Sakurai Sho, my – friend.” Ohno introduced Sho to Jun, but didn’t know how he should introduced Sho as.

“You mean – boyfriend, right?” Jun laughed.

Ohno and Sho were both embarrassed for being addressed as a couple, although that was what they were pretending to be.

"Hi. I'm Matsumoto Jun, Satoshi-kun's cousin." Jun reached out his hand to Sho.

"Nice to meet you, Matsumoto-san." Sho said and shook Jun's hand.

"Pleasure to meet you too. Satoshi-kun and I practically grew up together." Jun said with a gentle smile.

"Yeah right, I still remember you stole my first girlfriend from me in 6th grade." Ohno teased Jun.

"That's ancient history. But thanks to that I found out girls are no fun. I promise I won't steal your girlfriends again." With a glance at Sho, Jun continued. "But I might steal your boyfriend though."

Sho didn't know Jun was gay and thought he was just joking around, but he still blushed at the remark.

"Hey tomorrow is Sunday, why don't we all go play tennis. I've hired an ex-Wimbleden champion as my coach in London. I can surely beat you this time, Satoshi-kun." Jun proposed.

"Really? Then I've got to see how you can do that. I'm free tomorrow, the school project can wait." Ohno seemed excited about Jun's suggestion.

"Mmm, you guys go ahead. I have work to do tomorrow, and I'm not really good at tennis. I rather not spoil your fun." Sho declined the invitation.

"Come on, we are only playing for a few hours. Some exercise can recharge your energy for school work." Jun wanted to persuade Sho to going.

"Thank you, but I still have volunteer work to go to. You guys have fun." Sho still didn't want to go. Besides having work to do, he didn't want to get involve with any more people in the Ohno's family than he needed to.

"Just let him, Jun-kun. Sho is a workaholic. He would not give up his work for anything.” Ohno knew Sho wouldn’t change his mind on this. He had come to know Sho more than he noticed.

“Alright then. I won’t insist. I guess I can’t win over two voices speaking in the same tone, can I?” Jun teased the couple. “Sho-kun, you don’t mind me calling you that, do you?”

“Not at all, Matsumoto-san.”

“Call me Jun. I’ll see you around then. Don’t work too hard. Satoshi-kun, I’ll meet you at 10:00am at the country club tennis court.”


“Ah, you really are getting better. But you still can’t beat me just yet.” Ohno said to Jun after playing a few match of tennis, which he won two sets to one. They were sitting down at the bench, resting and drinking their bottled water.

“Next time, next time I would beat you, for sure.” Jun hydrated himself with half a bottle of water. “It was a good match.”

“It was. At least now you can take a set from me. Before I could beat you in straight sets.” Ohno patted his cousin’s shoulder. “I was shocked by your big improvement.”

“Speaking of shock, nothing could be more shocking than the news that you’ve turned gay.” Jun said in a disbelieved tone. “You just emailed me those pictures you took with that sexy girl last Christmas. I can’t believe you can turn so suddenly. But I suppose a charming guy like Sho-kun can turn anyone.”

“Well, between you and me, I actually didn’t.” Ohno confessed.

“You didn’t? But how come -- ” Jun was confused in what Ohno said.

“You know how my parents tried to match me up with those so call ladies, boring and punctilious. I was so tired of them arranging blind dates for me, so I came up with the idea and told them I’m gay and that I have a lover. It backfired on me and they said they wanted to meet him. So – ”

“So you asked Sho-kun to pretend to be your lover?” Jun asked his cousin with widened eyes.

“Yeah, at first it was for a dinner only. I didn’t expect that they decided to stay with me for who knows how long.” Ohno sighed.

“Did Ojisan and Obasan buy it?” Jun asked curiously.

“Mama really likes Sho, I think she has accepted the idea. But papa – ”

“It’s not unexpected since Ojisan is such a prudent person.” Jun paused for a moment. He seemed to have something in mind. “Do you have any feelings for Sho-kun at all?”

Ohno was taken aback by Jun’s question. Supposedly he would give a ‘no’ answer without thinking, he never considered himself to be gay. He likes gals, he never thought otherwise. But he hesitated. He couldn’t bring himself to deny it right away, and that scared him.

“No – of course not.” He gave what he thought was the logical answer. “As soon as papa and mama leave, Sho will move out. We are just – friends.” It’s the first time he even admitted that he and Sho were friends.

“Good.” Jun smirked. “Then I can make my move on Sho.”

“What did you say?” Ohno was surprised that Jun showed interest in Sho. “You – you like him?”

“As a matter of fact, I do, a lot. The moment I saw him, I was attracted by his charm. I thought you’re so lucky to find someone like him.” Jun confessed. “But now I think I’m the lucky one here.”

“You can’t!” Ohno blurted.

“Er? Why can’t I? I thought you said you have no interest in him.” Jun was confused.

Ohno felt his face slowly blushing. “I meant – my parents see Sho as my lover. Your making a move on him will make them suspicious.” He tried to find excuse for his remark.

“Ah, don’t worry. I won’t ruin your plot. I promise Ojisan and Obasan won’t notice.” Jun seemed full of confident.

Ohno was speechless. He knew his cousin liked guys, it’s only natural that he would find Sho attractive. Part of him knew that it’s none of his business who makes a move on Sho, since he wasn’t really Sho’s lover after all. But part of him still felt intimidated, like someone is trying to steal something away from him.

“Well then, good luck. I don’t think he’s interested in anything else other than work, let alone a relationship. He’s the coolest guy I’ve ever met.” Ohno didn’t know if he was trying to discourage Jun or not.

“Don’t be so pessimistic. I believe in my own charm.” Jun laughed.

Ohno couldn’t bring himself in saying another word. A feeling of anxiety was pounding within him.

To Be Continued....

First!~ ^_^

Oooh~ Ohno's jealous! although he doesn't know it yet. Nothing like a little Sakumoto to intimidate the Yama pair. I hope Ohno finally realizes he actually loves Sho before Jun can succeed in capturing Sho's heart.
