Tsuyoshi sat in the waiting room. Because he wasn't relate
Tsuyoshi came to a decision. He would have to break up
with Koichi. Tsuyoshi neede
"Leader, would it be too hard for me to get a new roommate?" Tsuyoshi asked.
"It would be easy. I just have to find someone who would like to move in with you." Leader said. "Why do you want to change roommates?"
"I don’t want to discuss it now."
Leader who was sitting beside him leaned forwards and whispered into Tsuyoshi's ear. "What's the truth about what happened with you and Koichi?"
"You won't tell anyone else?" When Leader nodded, Tsuyoshi told him. "Koichi saw me giving Shingo a back rub. He thought I was having sex with him."
"There's only Koichi. I wouldn't cheat on him." Tsuyoshi took a deep breath and let it out. "Koichi didn't trust me. He broke up with me."
"Koichi is an idiot."
"Shingo told me that Koichi's been sleeping with
Mabo." Tsuyoshi paused. "Koichi confesse
"I'm not sure I believe Koichi." Tsuyoshi
looked down to his ring. "I'm not sure I'll stay with him. But right now
he needs me. I have to put my hatred for him aside, an
"Excuse me; I nee
"If you need a new roommate, I'd be willing to move in with you." Okada told him. Okada was a friend of his, but he couldn’t trust him fully.
"Not getting along with Ken?" Tsuyoshi guessed.
"Most of the time I sleep on the couch in the main room." The boy looked concerned. "When Koichi dated, did you have to sleep somewhere else?"
Tsuyoshi looked at his friend. "Can we not talk about Koichi?"
"Gomen na. I wasn't thinking."
Tsuyoshi looked at the other person in the waiting room.
Shingo sat glumly. In reality Tsuyoshi's
injuries had been Shingo's fault. His
friend had beaten Koichi because Tsuyoshi had been hurt. Tsuyoshi hope
The doctor came into the waiting room. "Joshima-san, your friend is in a serious condition."
"What's wrong with him?" Leader turned off his ketai and went to the doctor.
"Domoto Koichi's nose is badly broken. If we operate now, he will probably have a complete recovery." The doctor told him. "He also has broken ribs and his left radius is broken. He'll have to have surgery on his ribs. One of them is almost completely crushed."
"What about scaring?" Okada asked.
"After the operation, his nose will probably appear
normal within a month." The Doctor looke
"There is no problem with paying for Koichi's medical care." Leader said. "He's an employee of Johnny's Entertainment."
"Does he know about the surgery?" Tsuyoshi asked.
"I thought it would be best to discuss it with you
first." The doctor told him. "I wante
"I understand." Leader told him.
"Of course," Leader followed him out of the waiting room.
"Koichi needs an operation?" Shingo
whispered. "I didn't mean to hurt
him. I just wante
"Remind me never to get mad at you." Okada said.
His remark got a glare from Shingo. "If you tell on me, I'll make sure you're paid back!'
The youngster looked frightened. "I won't tell."
"What will happen if it can't be healed?"
Tsuyoshi asked. Even though he was angry with Koichi, he wanted his frien
"Don't think that way!" Shingo said. "You have to have faith in his getting better!"
Tsuyoshi waited in the surgery waiting room. His friends
stayed with him to support him. He could
see the nurse’s station from where he was sitting. An assistant had come from the manager with
authorization letters. The woman was the prim, proper type. Tsuyoshi watched as
the woman filled out the necessary paperwork. The woman then hande
The assistant came into the room. Her eyes set on Okada. "The manager would like you to come with me."
Okada suddenly looked like a trapped animal. "I want to stay here."
"You've been requested. Please come with me." She repeated.
"I won't go!" He said firmly. "I'm not going anywhere!"
"Do what she
says." Leader whispere
"You're right." the teenager got to his feet. He didn't look at his friends. He then followed her out of the waiting room.
"Why does he want to talk to Okada?" Tsuyoshi asked Shingo who was sitting on the other side of leader.
"He probably wants him to tattle some more." Shingo said.
"Okada doesn't get a choice in going." Leader
"Of course he does. He doesn't have to go." he insisted. "He could always tell the manager to go to hell."
"You know what happens when you refuse the Manager." Leader reminded him.
"How do you know he's being abused?" Shingo counted. "I think he likes being the manager's pet."
The leader glanced at Tsuyoshi. "This isn't the time to discuss this. Tsuyoshi's worried about Koichi."
"Of course," Shingo nodded.
"I'm scared." Tsuyoshi admitted. "What would happen if something went wrong?"
"For Koichi's sake, you have to stay positive."
"I'll stay here tonight." He decided. "I want to be at his side when he wakes up."
"Management won't let you." Leader reminded him. "Go to the dorm and stay there tonight. You can visit him in the morning."
"Koichi needs me." Tsuyoshi insisted. "He wants me to be here."
"I know he does." Leader looked around, an
"Okada will tell on me anyway."
"What if he doesn't?" Leader pointed out.
"Look at what happened with Mori and Nakai. They thought it was safe to go
out for just one day as lovers. Mori is
fired, and Nakai is never allowe
Tsuyoshi realized it was no use arguing with Leader. "Would you let me stay until Koichi wakes up from the surgery?"
"When we find out Koichi's awake, you'll go back to the dorms." Leader decided.
Tsuyoshi waited in the surgery waiting room. Shingo had left over an hour before. Leader had stayed with the younger man. Yamaguchi and Nagase came into the waiting room. Yamaguchi looked at Nagase. "Where’d he go?"
Yamaguchi went back out into the hallway, and pushed Mabo
into the room. The drummer had a black
eye and his lip was swollen. Tsuyoshi
rolled his eyes. Tokio was having troubles again. The group seeme
Tsuyoshi got up and went to the window. He looked out to
the night sky. Tsuyoshi didn't want to
look at Mabo. Koichi was having an affair with Mabo. Tsuyoshi wondered if Koichi ha
"You where right Leader." Yamaguchi told him.
"Course we ha
"Masahiro has something to give you leader." Nagase gave the drummer a shove. Mabo handed a piece of paper to Leader. He bowed.
"Everything I put down is the truth." Mabo told him.
Leader went to Tsuyoshi's side. He offered him a paper.
"It's got nothing to do with me." Tsuyoshi
"I think you're opinion of Koichi will change if you
Tsuyoshi took the paper away from Leader. He read it. According to the paper Mabo was blackmailing Koichi. Mabo had proof of all the sleeping around Koichi did when he was the Manager's favorite. When Mabo found out Koichi's feelings for Tsuyoshi, he began to use that as a blackmail tool. If Koichi didn't sleep with Mabo, all of the evidence would be turned over to the Manager. There was as very strong chance that Koichi would be fired if that happened.
"Mabo's been blackmailing Koichi?" Tsuyoshi asked. "How do you know Mabo isn't making it up?"
"Why would he make up something like this?" Leader countered. "Mabo's confession only damns Mabo."
"Koichi enjoyed being with me." Mabo sneered. "He begged me to use him."
'Quit lying." Nagase told him. "Tell the truth."
"He was a wild man with me. Koichi's other boyfriend
is still a virgin. Can you believe that?" Mabo looked at Tsuyoshi. "Koichi ha
Yamaguchi took Mabo's arm an
"Let go of my arm, and I will!"
Yamaguchi let go of Mabo's arm. The drummer rubbed his wrist.
"Koichi hated every minute of being with me." Mabo admitted. "Most of the time I ha
"You raped him?" Tsuyoshi gasped.
"It wasn't rape, it was forceful seduction." The drummer boasted. "The last time I took him, I found him in the kitchen. I pulled him into the pantry. He was all ready hard. If he didn't want me, why would he be so excited?"
*He was all ready hard.* Then it dawned on Tsuyoshi. He knew why Koichi had been so excited. "Have you thought perhaps Koichi had been with me before you found him?"
"It doesn't matter. I don't care what he does with you." Mabo told him. "In the end, he'll always be mine. Just remember that you won't be the only person he'll be with. He'll be with me too."
"Why would you do such a thing?" Leader asked.
"Power, it felt goo
"How many times did it happen?" Tsuyoshi tried
"Not as much as I would have liked. He was always hanging around you. It took a lot of time to get him away from you." Mabo bragged. "I kept a record. It was at least three times a week. He cheated on you. How does that feel knowing that he let me use his body?"
"Shut up!" Tsuyoshi punched Mabo hard in the face. Mabo countered, hitting Tsuyoshi back.
Yamaguchi and Nagase grabbed Mabo, pulling him away from
Tsuyoshi. Mabo trie
"That's what you think!" the drummer sneered. "It's only a matter of time until Koichi is with me all the time!"
"If I let go of you, will you stay here?" Leader asked Tsuyoshi.
"Mabo isn't worth my getting into trouble." Tsuyoshi admitted.
Leader let go of Tsuyoshi and went to Mabo. "Listen to me, Tokio takes care of its own."
Mabo stopped his struggling. "You can't do anything to me!"
"I'll leave you to Yamaguchi." Leader decided. "He'll decide what punishment you receive."
"Can I use all my bondage gear with him?" Yamaguchi said with a glint in his eye.
"You can use any whip or other disciplining device that you want." Leader told him.
"I will be please
"How many days should Mabo be punished?" Nagase asked.
"Mabo's punishments will last three days." Leader decided.
"You can't do that! It's inhuman." Mabo cried.
"Nagase help Yamaguchi get him back to the dorms." Leader told his friend.
"Hai." Nagase said.
The two men pulled Mabo out of the waiting room.
As soon as they where gone, Tsuyoshi asked Leader. "Yamaguchi has whips and bondage devices?"
"Yamaguchi has a certain refine
"Is he a masochist?"
"Yamaguchi is a sadist. Don't worry. He only beats those who consent to be beaten." Leader smiled. "Unless he has to punish someone for me."
Tsuyoshi didn't know what to say after that, so he sat thinking
about Koichi. He was still angry at Mabo. He realized his friend had been a
victim in all of this. He could still remember the times that Koichi had held
"I underestimated Koichi." Tsuyoshi finally said.
"It's hard for a person like Koichi to change." Leader told him. "But I think he has changed. He does love you."
"No, I don't think he would."
"I don't think he would have either." Tsuyoshi realized. "The next time I see him. I want to tell him I forgive him. Perhaps we can still have a future together."
Koichi woke up. He
"How did I get here?" Koichi trie
The nurse on duty ignored him as she worked on her
paperwork. It was hard for Koichi to see. He ha
"Tsuyoshi." Koichi called. "Tsuyoshi." there was no answer, so he called his friend's name louder and louder.
That got the nurses attention, she went to his side. "Please be quiet. You'll wake the other patients."
"I want Tsu-chan."
"I'm not sleeping until I talk to Tsu-chan!" Koichi said stubbornly.
"What's his name?"
"I told you, Tsuyoshi!" Koichi couldn't understand why the woman didn't know who is best friend was.
"His family name." The nurse seeme
"Domoto, His name is Domoto Tsuyoshi." Koichi told her. "I want Tsu-chan!"
"I'll be right back." the woman left.
"Tsu-chan, I want Tsu-chan." Koichi kept
repeating in his uncertainty. It seemed as if a long time passed as Koichi lai
Suddenly a very familiar han
Someone stood beside him, he had dark hair. The swelling in his face prevented him from seeing much else. "Tsu-chan, is that you?"
He could feel Tsuyoshi kiss his fingers. "Yes, it's me. You're not dreaming."
"My face, it feels like it's puffed up like a marshmallow." Koichi told him. "I'm having trouble seeing."
"Your face is badly swollen." Tsuyoshi brought
Koichi felt the familiar face. "My Tsu-chan."
"My ko-chan." Tsuyoshi put Koichi's hand back down on the bed.
"It's okay," Tsuyoshi soothed. "I forgive you."
"Why would you forgive me?" Koichi asked. "I don't deserve it."
"I have to forgive you. I can't live my life without you." Tsuyoshi put a ring on Koichi's finger. "I'll be at your side forever."
"Do you remember coming to the hospital?"
"Yes, but I don't know how I got a cast."
"You've had an operation on your nose, and another
on your ribs." Tsuyoshi trie
"What's this?" Koichi asked.
"I thought I'd give you a photo of us. If you're
feeling lonely, you can look at it." Tsuyoshi kissed his friend's fingers.
Then he moved so that he was close to Koichi's face. He ignore
"I can't sleep. Need you here with me."
Koichi was surprised when Tsuyoshi climbed into the bed with him. It was a very narrow fit, but somehow Tsuyoshi was able to keep his balance. Tsuyoshi stretched out beside him. Then he put his head on Koichi's pillow. "I'll stay with you until you fall asleep."
Koichi moved his head so that it was touching Tsuyoshi's.
It felt strange, but he neede
Tsuyoshi couldn't sleep.
He was worried about Koichi. So
he used studying as an excuse, and sat in the lounge area. He tried looking at his books. Tsuyoshi
couldn't keep his mind on what he was doing.
All he coul
He thought it was strange when Nagase Tomoya announce
"Would you like some coffee?" Nagase offered.
"That sounds good." Tsuyoshi picked up a pen and began to doodle on a spare piece of paper.
Nagase poured him some coffee from the flask. He handed it to him. "He'll be back soon."
"Who will be?" he pretended innocence.
"Koichi,” he paused. "I wante
"Koichi isn't a slut!" Tsuyoshi said firmly.
"Name one person in this dorm he hasn't slept with."
"You've never slept with him?" Nagase sounded as if he didn't believe him. "Koichi'll drop his pants for anyone. Why not you?"
"I don't have to tell you that."
"Has he told you why he sleeps around?"
"He was the manager's favorite." Tsuyoshi trie
"Leader told me the same thing." Nagase told him. "He told me that I should stop judging Koichi."
"Stop calling him a slut." Tsuyoshi told him. "Koichi's no longer like that. He's changed." Tsuyoshi closed his eyes. He really didn't want to talk about Koichi's infidelity. He opened his eyes and asked. "What's the new drama about?"
The door to the lounge opened, and Okada slipped in. One of his eyes had been bruised, and his lip was swollen. His t-shirt had been torn. Tears where pouring down his cheeks. He sat on the floor, his back against the closed door. Then his eyes set on the two men in the room. "Why are you up?"
"I could ask you the same thing." Nagase said.
"I just got in."
"You're only fifteen; you shouldn't be out so late." Tsuyoshi told him.
"What would our manager say if he found out you
where out this late?" Nagase added. "Perhaps we shoul
"Please don't," The boy said softly.
"I don't see why we shouldn't. You tell on us often
enough!" Nagase said. "I think management might be intereste
"I was suppose
"You got caught, and I am going to tell on
you." Nagase seeme
"Then tell. Perhaps he'll fire me. Then I can go
"I wonder if he's up now." Nagase took out his ketai.
"Please don't call. I don't want to be hurt
again!" Okada covered his face with his bruised arms. Tsuyoshi notice
"Stop it Tomoya!" Tsuyoshi snapped. "Okada's been beaten up."
"Perhaps he got on his boyfriend's nerves." Nagase snapped.
"Our manager isn't my boyfriend!" Okada insisted. "I hate him."
"Then why are you seeing him?" He put his ketai up.
"I don't get a choice." he pulled his legs up
to his chest, and wrapped his arms aroun
"I wonder what management would say if it was found out you where sleeping around?"
"I don't sleep around!"
"Then it will be okay if I tell the Manager about Sakamoto." Nagase threatened. "I think he would be interested in knowing his favorite has a boyfriend."
"Please don't tell him about Sakamoto." Okada began to sob. "He'll beat me worse the next time."
"Why? Don't you think he needs a taste of his own medicine?"
Tsuyoshi went to Okada's side and knelt down beside him. "Our manager knows where you where, doesn't he?"
"I'm not suppose
"He's just like Koichi." Tsuyoshi realized.
"Okada's nothing like Koichi!"
"You don't see, do you?" Tsuyoshi asked. "Management picked a new favorite. One that he tortures, and abuses. One that has to tell on his friends, so that the pain will stop."
"Our Manager's torturing you?" Nagase turne
"I hate going to him! I die a little bit every time he touches me!" Okada insisted. "I would quit but my mother won't let me return home."
"Leader was right, you are a victim." Nagase told him. "I'm sorry I threatened you."
"You two know my secret." he wiped away a tear. "Soon the whole dorm will. I'll be hated even worse then I am now."
"No one will find out." Nagase promised.
"You want revenge. I understan
"Why don't you go to bed? We can talk about this in the morning." Tsuyoshi suggested.
"I can't, I'll wake up Ken. He's probably got Morita sharing his bed. I'm not allowed in the room when they're together." He nodded at the couch. "I'll sleep in here."
"You can stay in my room. You can sleep in Ko-chan's bed." Tsuyoshi offered.
"Are you sure you want a spy sleeping in your room?" Okada asked.
"You're not a spy!" Tsuyoshi helped him up.
"It's all right, go to bed." Nagase agreed.
"But my secret." Okada reminded him.
"It needs to stay a secret." Nagase told
him. "I'll preten
Tsuyoshi had slept through morning visiting hours, so he
would have to go in the afternoon. There
wasn't anything to do, besides worry. Leader ha
Tsuyoshi came into Shingo's room. Kusanagi shut the door.
Tsuyoshi couldn't help but notice the boxes that were on Shingo's bed. Tsuyoshi decide
"Shingo's been thrown out of the dorm." the older man went back to packing. "He went to the Manager this morning and made a full confession."
"So you're packing for him." Tsuyoshi guessed.
"He's not allowe
"Is he still in Smap?"
The older man gave Tsuyoshi a withering look. "Of course he's still in Smap. He'll be staying with Nakai until he finds his own apartment."
"Listen, I didn't do anything with Shingo." Tsuyoshi began.
"I know that." Kusanagi interrupted.
"Shingo's got a ba
"I wonder why his temper's so bad." Tsuyoshi
"He was only eleven when Smap was first formed. The older guys picked on him a lot." Kusanagi told him. "He gets angry when he sees someone picked on. Shingo'll hit first and ask questions later."
Kusanagi pulled a drawer out of the dresser, and dumpe
"We're going together." Tsuyoshi shrugged. "I'm not sure what I am to Koichi."
"I bet everyone's trie
"Yes, they have. I'm sick of everyone telling me that Koichi can't stay true to me."
"Do you believe he can?"
"I trust him." Tsuyoshi said. "I don't care what everyone else thinks about him. I know Koichi better then anyone."
"I feel the same way about Shingo-chan." he
picked up a pile of stuff an
"How long have you been with Shingo?"
"Two years. He promised me he would change, and he did." Kusanagi looked at Tsuyoshi. "He needed my complete trust. When I gave it to him, he changed completely."
"So I nee
"Good start, but next time you see him. Tell him you trust him." Kusanagi suggested.
"I will." Tsuyoshi promised.
Kusanagi looked aroun
After his talk with Kusanagi, Tsuyoshi decide
"Do you want some help?" Tsuyoshi offered.
"I can handle this." Nagase told him.
"Are you going to turn me in?" Tsuyoshi sat down on a bench close to where Nagase was working.
"I'm breaking the rules with Koichi." He
reminded his friend. "We aren't suppose
"I can't turn you in. If I did, I would have to turn
myself in." Nagase rinse
Tsuyoshi fought down the urge to ask Nagase who is lover was. "This isn't fair. Why can't we be with who we want?"
"I don't know." Nagase began to mop again. "I love Shingeru, you love Koichi. I don't see a problem with that."
"*Leader*? You and Leader?" Tsuyoshi gasped. "You can have any man in this dorm, and you picked Leader?"
Nagase couldn't suppress his grin. "There's
something about men from
"Leader?" Tsuyoshi couldn't believe his ears. "You never told me you like Leader."
"I know he's a lot older then me, but when we’re together, it seems like we're the same age. The Shingeru I see is different then the Leader everyone else knows."
"Now you know why I love Koichi." Tsuyoshi said. "What I see is a good, honorable man. I want to stay at his side forever."
"I don't think he loves you." Nagase said. "He probably thinks your some kind of conquest."
"Then it's my mistake to make." Tsuyoshi told him.
Leader came into the gym. He glanced at the blood on the
"Oh god, no." Nagase swore. "Why? Why does he have to go?"
"I'm going to be fired." Tsuyoshi groaned.
"Good luck." The leader said sincerely. "Hopefully you won't be gone too long."
Nagase looked at Tsuyoshi. "Please don't tell on us."
"I won't." Tsuyoshi promised. He took a deep breath. He got up and went to the parking lot.
