Disclaimer: I don’t own any of the characters. I just borrowed them from their rightful owners for the sake of having some fun writing and reading. This is my first attempt in writing a fan fiction. I’ve never written anything like this before and I am relatively new in this fandom. So, there is a good chance that the people involved may be a bit out of character. Thinking that it is set in an alternate universe where one of the girls was not an idol, the Iwate Incidents had never happened, and LINE had not yet been a popular way of communication may help. Regarding ratings, I’ve never written anything that can be rated more than PG-13. However, the story does portray a same-sex attraction between girls. So, if you’re not comfortable or not allowed to access such thing wherever you are, please do feel free to stop reading here. Reader discretion advised.
THEATER BLUES: An AKB48’s YuiParu Fanfic
by Arch DeNight
The sun shone brightly through the gap between the curtains and landed on Shimazaki Haruka’s face. She enjoyed the warmth, but she knew that it was a signal for her to get up. She yawned and stretched her arms upwards. She did have a good night sleep, thanks to Yokoyama-san.
She opened her eyes slowly, ready to mutter an “Ohayou” to her host. But, even after she rubbed her eyes a few times, the girl was nowhere to be found. The futon had been gone. Yokoyama-san must have put it away because there was a table on the place where it should be right now. Something covered with a napkin was on the table and a piece of paper was stuck to it.
Shimazaki took the paper and read a message that was written on it.
Did you sleep well? I hope so. I have something to do this morning. I am sorry I didn’t wake Shimazaki-san up. I thought, Shimazaki-san must be tired after last night. Ah, I made some breakfast earlier. Please do have some. No need to wash the dishes. I’ll do that later. I thought, you may also want to change. So, if it’s okay with you, I’ve laid some clothes on the bed. Please take your time. I won’t be back until late tonight. So, if you’re ready to leave, please just put the key in the mailbox. Arigatou.
p.s.: Ah, since you have work this afternoon, ganbatte kudasai (^_^)/
Shimazaki Haruka’s eyebrows were forming a squint.
“That woman… Maji de… Why did she go through all the trouble of inviting someone over if she has to work so early in the morning? Leaving a stranger in her place like this… Is it really okay? Wasn’t she afraid that I will steal or break her stuff? Not that I would, though…”
Shimazaki Haruka shook her head, unable to comprehend the girl’s way of thinking. This Yokoyama-san, a girl whose first name she did not even know, was really something.
- -san: a honorific used by the Japanese; can be considered equal to “Mr.”, “Mrs.”, or “Miss”
- Ohayou: Morning, good morning
- Ganbatte kudasai: an expression used by the Japanese to cheer someone up; can be considered equal to “Please do your best”, “Keep it up”, or “Good luck”
