Summary: Jin and Kame are again a couple, and it starts to work out quiet well, till Kame disappears, and Jin tries to find him. A journey through the last years start. Jin has to remember about their past, about their break ups, about their beloved moments, because only in remembering those he would be able to find Kame. It's a run against time, because Jin doesn't know where Kame is, or what has happened to him.
A/N: The story starts right after Jin's nightmare, it was one of the drabbles I wrote some days ago, and because of some requests I made a sequal out of it. ^_^ You can find the drabble HERE.
Jin held the cup in his hands and remembered the first time he met Kame in the agency. They stood in the lobby and waited for the first rehearsal in his life. Jin looked around and tried to recognize some of the guys from the audition, but there wasn't anyone he knew.
Farer away he saw one of the senpais, Tackey, who stood on the other side and talking with some other guy. Jin knew Tackey from various meetings, he was always caring about the juniors, and helped them to manage the first steps in the agency.
On the other side he could see a small boy leaning against the wall. That has to be Ryo, I saw him on TV, and I really admired him, and now I am here too, Jin thought and looked at him. On the bench next to Ryo sat a small boy, looking somehow lost. Jin wanted to find friends here, and so he walked over to this boy and sat next to him.
“Hey, I am Akanishi Jin, and you?”, Jin smiled and looked at the boy, who was irritated about Jin speaking to him.
“Kame, eh, Kamenashi Kazuya, but everyone calls me Kame.”, he smiled back and looked in the crowd of young guys.
“So, are you new here?”, Jin asked.
“Yes, I am new here, and you?”, Kame replied without looking at Jin.
“Oh, me too, I came here with the last audition.”, Jin smiled and nodded.
“That's great, ah, sorry, there is Nakamaru, see you later, ne?!”, Kame stood up and walked away.
Jin sat there and looked on the ground, he thought it would be easier for him to find new friends. During the first week he found no one with whom he could talk, and during lunch he sat always alone on the table.
“Can I take a seat here?”, someone asked him suddenly. Jin looked up and saw Ryo standing in front of him. Jin just nodded and put away his lunch to make some place for Ryo. They ate wordless and right before Jin wanted to stand up, Ryo asked him: “Do you come to the opening night tomorrow?” Jin looked at him and just nodded. “Fine, then we can meet up there?”, Ryo smiled and stood up and walked out of the room.
Jin's heart made some jumps because his hope to find some friends raised in this moment. In the wink of his eye he could see Kame sitting on the other side staring at him. He looked at him and just smiled and greeted before he left the room.
What an arrogant guy Kame is, he believes he is the best, just the way he looked at me....Jin walked home and went immediately in his room. He locked his door because he didn't want to be disturbed by his brother, asking him thousands of questions about Johnny's nor he wanted to run into his mother, who looked at him with a sad face, because since he was in this agency he rarely meet up with his old friends, and somehow she had the feeling his son became lonely.
He lied on the bed and turned on the radio. After a few minutes he was fallen asleep and woke up early in the morning. He stepped outside and took a long shower till he was nearly relived. After breakfast he left the apartment and went to Johnny's. It was summer break in school, so on this day the dance rehearsals would start early in the morning, and he really wanted to give his best.
All boys got divided into small groups of four guys. And there was always one in the group, who had some experience with choreography and dancing. Jin looked at Johnny who called out the first group: “Akanishi Jin, Taguchi Junnosuke and Kamenashi Kazuya, guided by Nishikido Ryo.” Jin walked up to his group and smiled at everyone.
“Hey, I am Junno, nice to meet you all.”, the tallest smiled and waved his hand.
“I'm Akanishi Jin, so everyone calls me Jin”, Jin answered and looked at his group.
“Kame, I am Kame”, Kame smiled and greeted everyone.
“I am Nishikido Ryo, I think I have the order to lead this group”, Ryo grinned and guided them to their rehearsal room.
“The dance captain will come soon, we just have to wait a few minutes I guess”, Ryo smiled and looked at the others.
“I thought you make the training?”, Junno asked Ryo, who laughed and denied: “No, do I look like a choreograph?” They sat down in the room and silence appeared, till Jin asked Ryo: “Ryo, about tonight, this opening starts at 7 o'clock, ne?!” Ryo nodded and they decided to meet up at half past 6 o'clock at the entrance.
After the rehearsal Junno disappeared immediately, because his mother already waited for him and Ryo walked up to his friends, so Kame and Jin were alone.
“How do you managed this?”, Kame said suddenly. Jin looked at him and knitted his eyebrows: “What are you talking about?”
“I speak about Ryo. Everyone knows, that he is only with his friends and he hardly ever speak with others, especially new one's, because everyone is afraid of him.”, Kame answered.
Jin smiled and shook his head: “No idea, really”, he said. So you are jealous about that He looked at Kame and could see his sad face.
“Is everything alright?” he asked him.
“Yes, it's just I hoped to find more friends here.”, Kame smiled slightly and walked away.
Maybe he isn't that bad, Jin walked home to prepare himself for the evening.
“Hey Jin, come over here”, Jin heard someone calling his name. Ryo stood there with two other boys, who looked at him.
“That are Yamashita Tomohisa, everyone calls him Yamapi, and that's Ikuta Toma, simply called Toma.” Ryo smiled and introduced them to Jin. “Nice to meet you, I am Akanishi Jin, I am new in Johnny's.” Jin smiled and looked at Toma and Yamapi. They walked in and saw the crowed running around and chatting loudly with others. Jin looked round and found Kame sitting in the corner on the other side of the room, staring in his cup of coffee.
“You're drinking coffee at this time?”, Jin smiled at Kame who raised his head and looked at Jin. “What? Sorry, I didn't listen”, he answered. “Coffee, in your cup, why are you drinking coffee on a party?”, Jin laughed.
Kame tried to smile too and stood up. “I don't know, maybe because I am coffee-addicted, I can't life without.” Both laughed and Jin took Kame to the others, who were sitting on a large table with some other guys. Whether Jin nor Kame knew any of them, and after a while Ryo disappeared with some others. Kame and Jin spoke some words with Junno and met some senpais, who were interested in the new guys in the agency.
After an hour Kame and Jin had to went home, because both had to go home on their own, and they weren't allowed to stay outside as long as they wanted.
“Ah, shit, I forgot my cup inside”, Kame turned around and ran inside. After a few minutes he came back, but without his cup. “Kame, why the hell do you have your own cup with you? You know that's more than strange?”, Jin knitted his eyebrows and looked at the other one.
“I know, but I can only drink coffee out of from my cup.” Kame turned red and walked up to Jin. “But I didn't find it, it must be somewhere in there, but there are too many people and I couldn't find it.”, Kame added.
Jin slipped in his bed and thought of the last hours. Kame isn't bad, but really strange... School started on the next day, and after the lessons Jin had to go to the rehearsal in the agency. On his way to the agency he crossed the hall where the opening party was, and walked in. He looked around and walked up to the place where he met Kame on the last evening, and finally found what he searched for. The cup lied in the corner right under the bench. He knelt down and tried to reach it, and after a few tries he pushed it out. He turned it in his hands and read the text on the cup. “Ganbatte, ne Kame-chan” and right under this line was written the name of Kame's sibling. Jin smiled and put the cup into his bag, before he went out and saw Kame walking up to him.
“Hey, Jin, what are you doing here?”, Kame smiled and looked at Jin. “I went by and I found this one”; he pulled out the cup and gave it to Kame. “Ah, thanks a lot, you found it, I came here one an hour ago but I didn't find it, and I wanted to try it again now”, Kame took the cup and hugged Jin. Jin was surprised about Kame's sudden movement, but he hugged him back. It was the day the they became friends.
Jin turned the cup in his hands, it was the beginning of their friendship, and finally their love. Jin put the cup back into the package and went to the place from the opening party. He looked round but he couldn't see a package, message or Kame anywhere. He looked at a small park right next to the house and saw a shadow wandering behind a tree. Kame....Jin ran up to the tree and looked around, but there was only a small piece of paper fixed on the tree. On the paper was Jin's name, and he knew this handwriting, it was Kame's. He took the paper and he remembered this short notice, it was written after four years of their friendship. Jin opened it and started to read it again:
I really want to thank you for your help today, maybe we can meet up at 8pm at our favourite place?
A second piece of paper fell down and Jin knelt down to take it and finally read it: “Remember the story of this letter. The words I told you at the end of this night guides you to the next place where you find more information.”
Jin put the papers in his bag and looked around: “Kame, what the hell....where are you??? And what's going on here....I don't think that's funny, Kame” Jin screamed, and walked up to the next bench to sit down. He sighted and closed his eyes. The day I got this message was 8 years ago...
