Summary: To start a new life is everything Aiba wants. And his new work place in a different host club brings him a bunch of new friends.



Aiba strolled down the street. He stopped when he passed a bookstore, which was close to the club. Aiba smiled. He couldn’t remember the last time he bought a book. He went in. He always loved the smell of books. It was something special to him.

He let his fingers wander over the back of the books. He stopped when he reached a special one. History of Roman Art. Aiba smiled. He took the book off of the shelf and opened it. There were a lot of pictures and descriptions for various pictures and statues.

Aiba spent his afternoon in his room reading the book. He couldn’t remember the last time he did this. It must have been ages. He could feel his body relaxing and with that he felt tired. Aiba smiled. He loved the feeling of being tired, because the last eight years his body was numb and without any feeling. And now he felt like waking up again.

A short knock on his door let Aiba be pulled out of his thoughts. “Yes?” he said.

The door opened and Jun smiled at him. “Hey, how are you doing?”

“Oh you are already back?” Aiba sat up. “I thought you’d be out with Kame for the whole day.”

Jun sat down next to Aiba. “No, he needs to get back to work. What are you reading?”

Aiba showed the book at Jun. “Seems you and Ohno share a hobby?” Jun laughed.

Aiba blushed at that. He hoped that Jun didn’t recognize that he felt caught. “I always wanted to study art when I was a child. And Ohno brought my interest back.”

Jun browsed in the book. He stopped at a certain page and let his finger stroke over the picture. “The Trevi fountain in Rome?” Aiba asked.

He could see Jun was absent-minded staring at the picture of it. “I wanted to visit it with Yuri.” Jun smiled sadly. “We wanted to make a wish there.”

Aiba looked at Jun closely. For some seconds there was something vulnerable in Jun’s behaviour. The strong and imperturbable character was gone. For just one second he showed the face he was probably just showing to Kame.

“Let’s go there some time and make a wish. Us all together,” Aiba said. He didn’t know why he said that in that moment. And he hoped Jun wouldn’t scold him for saying that, but the other just smiled at Aiba.

“That would be really nice,” Jun just replied.

~~~

When Aiba waited for a customer two days later he thought about his talk with Jun. Maybe they’d really go to the Trevi fountain someday. He could see how much it meant to Jun and he wanted to give him back something for his help.

When Aiba began to work in the Melon Club he got to know Kame on the very first day. They spent a lot of time together and only a short time later Aiba got to know that Jun sat Kame on Aiba to bring him out there. Aiba always felt a strong bond between him and Jun, even though the two didn’t even know each other. Aiba always had the feeling that Jun – and Kame - were the reason he survived that time.

“Can I come in?” Aiba winced when he heard someone open the door.

“I am sorry, I was lost in my thoughts, I didn’t hear you knock on the door,” Aiba said. His heart made some jumps when Ohno entered the room. “Is Jun with a customer again?”

Ohno shook his head. “No.” He sat next to Aiba. “I stopped with my story about Henri Matisse yesterday and thought of telling you about the rest of his life today.”

Aiba smiled at him. “That would be so great.” He could feel a warm rush waving through his body.

Aiba listened to Ohno telling him about the artist’s life and works. Just sometimes he got lost in his thoughts when he looked directly into Ohno’s eyes and his smile curling around his lips. Aiba loved how Ohno seemed to live for art and the history of it.

“…He died 1954 in Nizza. He had a heart attack. His grave is placed in Cimiez, on the highest point of the cemetery. It’s dedicated to him and his wife,” Ohno ended the story.

 “Wow,” Aiba answered. “That was really interesting.”

Ohno stretched his arms. “Yes. I love his works so much. He is one of my favourite artists, so I studied his life and works.” Ohno yawned.  “It’s already late. I need to go now, Aiba-san.”

Aiba felt something in him clench. He wanted the other to stay a little longer, but he knew Ohno paid for this, and he couldn’t make him stay longer. “Sure. It was really nice with you. Till next time.”

Ohno smiled at him when he left the room. Before Aiba closed the door Ohno turned to him. “I really enjoy the time together with you.”

Aiba’s heart made some jumps. He just bowed and hoped Ohno wouldn’t see his embarrassment.

“Oijoijoi,” Aiba heard Nino clicking his tongue. “That’s really interesting.” Nino smiled. “Seems he is pretty interested in you.”

“No,” Aiba just said and turned to go into his room again. He didn’t want to discuss if there is any kind of interest from him or Ohno.

~~~

It was again 4am when Aiba came back to his room.


It was like his body was on tension for the last years and now with everything turning better again, he could feel how spent and tired his whole body already became. Aiba lied down and covered himself with the blanket and closed his eyes. A warm feeling crossed his body. “I am at home, mom,” he murmured before he fell asleep.

~~~

The following nights Aiba waited for Ohno, but the other didn’t come. Aiba concentrated on the other guests he had, but he didn’t get rid of the nervous and bad feeling he had. He didn’t like that he fell for Ohno, but he couldn’t change it. The other caught his attention with the very first evening.

No matter how often Aiba tried to remember that Ohno was just a customer his feeling didn’t change.
But slowly Aiba got nervous that Ohno wouldn’t visit him again.

~~~




The peeping tone woke Aiba up early in the morning. Again he didn’t sleep much longer than 4 hours.

 “I hate mornings,” Aiba grumbled.

A knock on his door pulled him out of his thoughts. “Are you awake?”

“No,” Aiba answered at Jun.

Aiba could hear the door close, and he thought Jun went away, till he felt someone lying next to him. “How was your night?”

“I am tired,” Aiba said. Okay, that hadn’t something to do with the job, but it was the first thing coming to his mind. “Who set my alarm?” he grumbled.

Jun chuckled. “I think that was me.”

“You think?”

“Okay, that was me. I wanted to go out with you,” Jun said.

“That early in the morning?”

Jun pulled on Aiba’s arm. “There is an exhibition I want to show you.”

Suddenly Aiba’s tiredness was gone. “An exhibition?”

“I knew you’d like it,” Jun chirped.

“You are interested in art?” Aiba wanted to know.

“No, not a bit, but Ohno told me that you are, so I thought of going with you.” Jun shrugged his shoulders.

Aiba’s heart made some jumps. Ohno talked about him – and he was here as customer again? On the one hand Aiba was happy because Ohno talked about him, but he was also a little bit disappointed because Ohno didn’t visit him. “What did he tell you?”

Jun tilted his head. “Nothing special, just that you had real nice evenings together and that you like art, and that he likes that you like art, and you know blabla…”

“He talked about me?” Aiba wondered.

Jun rolled his eyes. “Yeah, pretty much.”

Aiba giggled. He knew he sounded like a fourteen year old teenager, but he didn’t care.

“It seems you fell a little bit for the artist?”

Aiba blushed. “No, I don’t know him. I just had these few nights with him.” But he could start falling for him, Aiba thought but didn’t say out loud. “So, we are going to visit that exhibition?”

“Yes, and Nino and Sho will join us,” Jun said.

“Oh, they like art?” Aiba was now fully awake.

“No, they have no sense for art, same as me, but when I have to go, they also need to go.” Jun smiled.

“Poor you,” Aiba grinned. They had no idea what they got into here, because Aiba was probably one of biggest art nerds, and he could be a pain in the ass when it was about exhibitions, but in the end the others decided to go with him.

~~~

They walked into the building and already at the entrance were the first pictures on the wall. “That’s amazing,” Aiba chirped and turned to look at the others.

“Yeah, totally,” Nino tried sounding interested, but it didn’t work out.

They walked into the first room and Aiba’s eyes widened. There weren’t only Ohno’s pictures on the wall. It was a journey through centuries and countries. “I can’t believe it,” he said overwhelmed.

“Are these Ohno’s?” Sho stepped closer to a picture to take a closer look.

Aiba giggled behind him. “You really have no idea, right?”

Sho just shook his head and Jun and Nino joined him doing so. “Right,” Aiba started. “This one is called ‘the kiss’ and it’s from Gustav Klimt. It was made in the year 1908.”

Aiba stepped a little backwards to take a closer look at the picture. He looked at it from left to right and back.

“1908…Klimt,“ Sho murmured.

Jun and Nino looked at him. Sho just shrugged his shoulders. “What?” he started. “When I am already here I can at least try learning something new.”

“Next time I will force you to join the Tokyo game show, I promise,” Nino grumbled.

“And we’ll happily accompany you, right?” Aiba smiled at them.

“Yeah, sure,” Jun and Sho both sighed.

They ambled behind Aiba who ran from right to left and back to look at each single picture at least four times.

“And this is called ‘Skrik’. It’s Norwegian. The artist is Edvard Munch. Don’t you think that’s great?” Aiba turned, but the others weren’t behind him anymore. Jun, Nino and Sho sat a few meters away on a bench. They looked spent Aiba had to smile about that. It was already almost lunch time and they had been here for three hours. “How about searching for Ohno?” Aiba finally suggested. He was sure that there was a sigh of relief from the others.

They walked into the last room. It was just modern art in there. Aiba looked at three men on the other side of the room. They were talking with each other. One of them was Ohno. “These are his pictures?” Aiba wanted to know.

“I guess so,“ Jun answered.

“How about asking him?” Nino suggested.

Aiba nodded. He felt like a teenager when he started walking towards Ohno. Jun went next to him and he seemed to realize that Aiba was nervous, because he poked his side softly.

“Why did you bring me here?” Aiba asked out of the blue.

Jun looked at him, a big grin around his lips. “Ohno talked about you a lot during the last nights. And I thought it would be nice to bring you together.”

Aiba blushed. “Oh, he talked about me?“

“Yeah, and you talked about him, right?” Nino hooked in from behind.

Aiba stopped when he looked at Ohno and the person appearing next to him. Even though he was never interested in women, he had to admit that this was one of the most beautiful women he’d probably ever seen. And she was holding Ohno’s hand, leaning against him, and then there was this soft kiss from Ohno on her cheek.

~~~

Aiba didn’t know who he managed it to get out of the building that fast. I only saw him a few times, and there can’t be any feeling, he thought again and again.

Aiba smiled, even though he felt like crying.

Jun looked at Aiba. “I had no idea.” He sounded guilty. “He talked so much about you.”

Nino and Sho just touched Aiba’s shoulder without saying something.

“I will come back to the club later, okay? I just need some time now,” Aiba said.

The others nodded at him and Aiba left them behind. Never ever falling in love again, that was what Aiba promised himself long ago, and again he got fooled by his feelings.

Oh, Aiba, don't jump to conclusions without any proof......

Thanks sooo much for reading and commenting <3 <3 <3

Both Jun and Aiba think Ohno is a nice person. Nice persons don't go cheating on their girlfriends and don't invite the partness in crime to go to their exhibitions, right? So there must be some explanation for that kiss, your Honor!
So there, looking so much forward the next update and the moment Ohno and Aiba resolve their feelings^^
Thank you so much for sharing!
yukitsubute: Aiba-chan neuyukitsubute on April 1st, 2016 01:33 pm (UTC)
Yes, Ohno is a nice person, but is he really or is it just Jun's and Aiba's thought? :D :D

Thanks sooooo much for reading and commenting dear *hugs* *hugs*

Aww~ Aiba was heartbroken even before he could grasp fully of his true feelings.
There has to be some explanation behind Ohno and that girl's relationship.

Thank you so much for the update~
yukitsubute: Aiba-chan neuyukitsubute on April 1st, 2016 01:32 pm (UTC)
Yes, there will be an explanation :P

Thanks soooo much for reading and commenting *hugs*

It's so nice of Jun to drag the others to the exhibition for Aiba's sake hehe but i do wonder what they talk about, Ohno and Jun when he said that they talk about Aiba. It's a little surprising that Aiba loves art too.


Aw Aiba..  It's just a kiss on the cheek, it doesn't mean anything. But still it must have been hard on Aiba. Don't give up on love dear!


Thanks for an update!! Waiting patiently for the next one!


Much loves<3

Yes, Aiba is the art lover here *lol* I thought of something cool for him, and I love art so that came to my mind :D

Yes, you are right, it's just a small kiss, but it's not for Aiba :P

Thanks sooo much for reading and commenting dear <3 <3

Thanks sooo much for reading and leaving a comment :D

I'm sure this is just a misunderstanding! And Aiba just jumped to a conclusion - of course he did, because it came as such a surprise :-( But maybe this woman is Ohno's mother or sister or just a friend!

I think it's cute how the others want to get them together or at least help them to get closer. I'm looking forward to Ohno and Aiba finally sleeping with each other <3

The trip at the museum with an art-enthuastic Aiba was so cute :D

Thanks so much for this update!! ♥
