Part 1

Ohno POV

“Thank you for your hard work today, Ohno-san.” The staff of the commercial shooting said to me as I was leaving the studio. I politely thanked the staff in return and went back to the green room.

It had been a long day for me and I was really tired. All I wanted was to get changed and went home. I sat in front of the mirror and started to take off my makeup when I stopped and stared at the face in front of me. This face, this person I saw in the mirror was going to be thirty-two years old the next day.

For most people being thirty-two may still be in the beginning stage of their career – a few years after they finished college and trying to build a future. But for me, it’s already my eighteenth year on the job.  I can’t say that I have made tremendous achievements, but I believe I have earned myself a recognizable reputation. I am happy with what I am doing, and what I have accomplished so far. I am blessed with a loving family, great fellow Arashi members, and supportive fans. And most of all, I am in love with the person who I love dearly and has stood by me through hard times, whom I love seeing when I go home everyday. With that thought, a smile appeared on my face and I continued to finish up.

My manager dropped me off in front of my apartment. I fell asleep in the van as usual and he had to wake me up when we arrived.

“Happy Birthday, Ohno-kun.” My manager said to me before I got off the van.

“Thank you, but it’s not the 26th yet.” I replied, not knowing that time had past since I slept.

“It’s past midnight, so it’s officially your birthday.” He pointed to the digital clock on the van’s dashboard. “I will pick you up at noon tomorrow for the choreography session with the juniors. Good night.”

My mind was not on next day’s work at the time, I was sure he would mail me to remind me of the pick up time again. I walked eagerly towards my apartment. I can’t wait to see the lovely face I had been missing, even though we just saw each other in the morning before we left for individual work.

“I’m home.” I opened the front door and was surprised to see the apartment all dark. I took off my shoes and walked into the living room when I felt a pair of arms wrapped around my waist from behind.

“Happy Birthday, Satoshi – ” Then a kiss fell on my nape.

I quickly turned around and pull him into an embrace before pressing my lips against his. “Sho – ”

Nothing feels better than a welcomed home kiss from your lover after a busy day of work. I fully agreed with that. I enjoyed the kiss too much that I didn’t want to break apart, but Sho gently pulled away before things got too heated up.

“Satoshi, not so fast. You haven’t eaten your birthday cake yet.” Sho released himself from my embrace and went into the kitchen.

“That soon? I thought we are celebrating tomorrow.” I said still recalling the aftertaste of our kiss.

“You forgot tomorrow is Monday? I have News Zero duty and won’t be home until late. Your birthday would have been past.” Sho brought out a cake that had an onigiri look with three candles on it.

“The cake is so cute. Did you make it?” I teased Sho knowing he couldn’t have.

 “Very funny.” He gave me a gentle smack on the head. “Now, come make a wish and blow the candles.”

I sat across from Sho with the birthday cake in the middle of the small dining table where we eat whenever we’re home together. Sho, my fellow member and lover, looked at me with the most gorgeous smile I have ever seen. I am so lucky to have him.

What birthday wish should I make? I hadn’t really thought of that. I pretty much have everything I wanted, well, almost everything. There is one thing my beloved Sho has done so well which I admire and envy – dressing in suits and stand in front of the camera to report news. I have been watching every episode of Sho’s News Zero report ever since it started in 2006. Even when I cannot watch it live, I would record it and watch afterwards. At first it was out of supporting Sho, but as I watched more and more I began to really appreciate Sho’s abilities to make complicated matters so easy to understand and turn ordinary interviews into engrossing ones. I thought it would be interesting to be Sho for one day and learn what he does every Monday, since my birthday coincidentally falls on a Monday this year. Knowing this was just a silly thought and would never come true, I closed my eyes, made my wish and blew the candles.

Sho immediately came close to me and gave me a kiss. “Shall we cut the cake?”

“I prefer to eat it in our bedroom – and you have to feed me – ” I smirked, took the cake in one hand and held Sho’s hand with another, leading the way to our bedroom.

I could not tell if it was light from outside the window or the sound made by the alarm clock that woke me up the next morning. I didn’t open my eyes immediately and continue to lie in bed. Cake feeding in bed followed by late night exercises weren’t really in my plan after a long day of work, but they were totally enjoyable. It wasn’t anything new to us, and our exercises weren’t even very intense since we knew we both have work the next day, but somehow I felt extra tired. My whole body was sore, especially from the waist down. I never felt this way before.

“Sho, it’s probably time to get up.” I gave the man next to me a slight push while still keeping my eyes closed, but I immediately noticed something strange. How come my voice sounded so much like Sho’s?

“Want to eat something together first?” After I finished my last sentence, I was more sure what I heard was not my own voice. I opened my eyes and looked at Sho and what I saw made me freaked out.

“Ahhhhhhh -- ” I instantly started to scream at the top of my lungs as if I just saw a ghost.

“What? What’s happening?” Sho who was still lying in bed jumped up with his eyes wide opened upon hearing the screams, but what he said was hardly heard because I was still screaming. Sho turned to look at me to find out what’s going on, but as soon as he saw me, he also started to scream.

“Ahhhhhhh – ”

“Ahhhhhhh – ”

“Wait! Stop! Time out!” Sho finally interrupted the frantic moment with a time-out gesture after a short while. I stopped screaming but still breathing heavily trying to calm myself down.

We stared at each other for a few seconds before Sho attempted to speak, still wasn’t sure what to say.

I saw myself, a person who looked just like me, sitting right next to me on the bed.

“You’re – Satoshi?” The person who looked like me was talking and I heard my own voice coming from his throat.

“And -- you’re Sho?” I also asked and this time it was Sho’s voice that came of my throat.

“What’s going on?” We both said simultaneously. The next second we ran into the bathroom and stood in front of the mirror. We both froze.

I looked just like Sho and Sho looked just like me – we were in each other’s body!!!

“Satoshi, are we dreaming? Are we dead?” Sho, who has my body now, said in despair. It felt really strange hearing my own voice calling me.

“I don’t know. May be our souls exchanged during our, you know, exercise last night.” It’s not a time for jokes, but I couldn’t find any better explanations.

“Non-sense. We  did exercise – before and nothing happened. What went wrong last night?” Sho said worriedly while sitting at on the floor. “We didn’t do anything unusual. We just celebrated your birthday and then – ”

My birthday! My birthday wish!!!

“That’s impossible!” I murmured to myself.

“What’s impossible?” Sho stood up and grabbed my arm. “Did you think of something? Tell me, tell me.”

“I don’t know – I mean, I don’t know if that’s really the reason. It sounded ridicules.” I felt kind of stupid for saying what I was about to say.

“Just say it, damn it. What can be more ridicules than we talking to ourselves who are not ourselves?!”

“Well, you asked me to make a birthday wish last night. So I was thinking, you look so cool when you are reporting news, so – it might be fun to – to experience that as you for one day – so I wished to be Sakurai Sho on my birthday  ” I lowered my head and softened my voice as I was finishing my sentence. “I didn’t know it would come true, really.”

I was sure Sho was going to hit me, so I closed my eyes waiting for the smack. When it didn’t come, I opened my eyes slowly and peaked at Sho. Instead of the mad look that I anticipated, he was in a daze. I couldn’t tell what on his mind. I couldn’t help but thinking, do I look this ‘off’ all the time?

“Wow, Satoshi, you’re incredible!” Sho finally spoke, but he didn’t seem to be mad. “I never had my birthday wish come true, not even once, and you did it!”

“So – you’re not mad?” I was surprised at how calm Sho was.

“Why would I be mad? I feel honored that you want to be me. I always thought that you’re more talented and smarter than I am. I actually also want to feel how can be so artistic and agile when you’re dancing. Change, remembered?” Sho made that change gesture again like he did on the Himitsu no Arashi-chan episode a while back.

“But I don’t know how to reverse it though.” I still felt guilty of getting us into this mess. “What if we won’t change back?”

“You only wished you be me for one day, right? So we’ll probably change back tomorrow when we wake up. In the meantime, we better think about how we can get through today without others knowing.”

Sho was right. Even when he’s in my body, Sho is still the brilliant and rational one between us. “Let’s just stay home the whole day until we change back. I was just joking when I said I want to do news casting like you. I can never do that.”

“Don’t sell yourself short, Satoshi. You’re much brighter than you thought. Since we want to experience each other’s life and have the opportunity to do so, why don’t we make the fullest of it? What’s your schedule looks like today?” Sho seemed pretty confident about it, but I’m not.

“Are you sure about that? I don’t want to ruin your newscaster’s reputation. You worked so hard for that.” I was still very skeptical of the whole idea. Obviously I didn’t think before I made my wish.

“It’s gonna be OK, I know it would be.”

To Be Continued....

AHHHHHHHHHH!!! im loving this already!!!!
it really was the most cutest & amazing moment when in the ousama no brunch interview for HnA that they actually said they wanted to be the other!!! LIKE ITS NOT SCRIPTED IT WAS REAL!!!!!
i LOL'd when ohno felt the aftermath of nocturnal excercises that sho deals with each time ;) also when he questioned his expression when he was in thinking/daydream mode!
this is so interesting & i think Sho should be able to do a backflip cos that would be another wish come true but for Sho! XD
as for ohchan i hope he gets a current affairs topic that he would be able to smoothly talk about with his own knowledge & expertise like maybe he gets assigned a segment in ichimen concerning the value of art ! XD

thank you for this!
