“Makotochan…you said you had kabuki tickets. This is not kabuki!!” Yui growled with a half glare toward the taller woman.
Makoto herself looked slightly guilty pressing her index fingers together. “Well Minachan said it was the only way to get you to come here.”
Yui raised an eyebrow, “I don’t appreciate being lied to. Nor tricked into going to something I’m not a fan of.”
“But The Lights are your friends too, shouldn’t you support them?” Minako chirped in.
“That may be true.” she paused crossing her arms, trying to keep her composure.” However, that doesn’t mean I have to like their music.”
Both of the two girls looked at Yui now rater mischievously, “Then how do you support them Yuichan? Do you buy any of their merchandise?”
“No. I pray to Saraswati to let them have a good concert.”
Both sighed in disappointment hearing her answer.
“What? It’s good to have her blessings!” Yui stated with a pout.
The three remained silence after that, it being broken by screaming fans of The Lights. Yui groaned covering her ears. ‘Even Lord Ganesh’s poor ears would hurt from all this shrieking! Are they trying to summon demons with that wailing?!’ She thought to herself.
The screaming toned down when the boys arrived onto the stage. Their outfits all black with different colored vests and ties. Yaten’s was green with a yellow lotus pin attached to the top of the left side. Seiya’s was blue with a pink lotus also attached to the left side. Taiki’s was purple with a white lotus his too was on the left.
Taiki paused mid-step, seeing Yui, their eyes locking for a moment. He was certainly not expecting to see her at their concert of all places. Gathering his thoughts he went to his place on the stage. The other two smirked silently to themselves noticing his pause.
Seiya spoke up, “While we do have some new songs. I figured we could at least start with an old song so you all can into The Three Lights vibe.”
Their music then began, a deep passion coming from their vocals. Yui’s eyes looked toward the ground it was their popular song from two years ago.
“No…not this song.” She muttered.
“Yuichan?” Minako whispered.
“…I don’t like this song at all.” She replied.
“Why? It’s so pretty.”
Yui’s brows furrowed. “Can’t you feel their pain in the song?”
Minako sighed, she knew after knowing their true form. But the source of their sorrow was nice and safe at home. Yet it could still affect people that truly listened. She put a comforting hand on Yui’s shoulder seeing Yui’s tears. “It should be over shortly. And then you’ll hear their new and hopefully less sad stuff!”
Sure enough as Minako said it was over, much to Yui’s relief. She wiped away what remained of her tears. She jumped when the guitar started playing rather loudly. She was defiantly too use to hearing their more soft ballads. She frowned finding her toes tapping to the beat.
“Yuichan are you liking a Three Lights song?” Makoto teased seeing Yui now subconsciously swaying her hips.
Yui stopped mid-sway grumbling to herself, “No. the guitar is just good. That’s all.”
Makoto only giggled and playfully elbowed Yui. “Ooo Taiki can’t keep his eyes off you.”
Curiosity getting the best of her she looked back up at the stage. Their eyes meet again. Once they did all other sounds seemed to fall deaf to her save for his guitar and vocals. She felt heat rising to her cheeks as her heart skipped a beat.
Suddenly she felt dizzy, her vision going double, then black, breaking whatever hold they had on one another. Minako caught her before she fell to the ground.
“Yuichan?!” Minako cried, fanning Yui with the program.
Makoto began fanning her as well. “…What do you think caused this? Did she lock her knees?”
Minako shook her head, “Not that I could tell.”
The brunet frowned and then looked over to the boys, whom had stopped seeing Yui faint.
“Sorry for the pause, but we need to take a quick intermission.” Yaten stated, getting a few groans and boos from the audience.
“Taiki did you do something?” Seiya asked while in their dressing room.
He shook his head, “Not that I’m aware of. I just know…we connected.”
“Connected? Like with how Seiya did with Usagi 2 years ago?” Yaten asked.
“No, this was different. I wasn’t telling her anything.” Taiki answered sitting down with a sigh. “It was like she was inspiring me through our connection.”
Seiya put his hand to his chin thinking for a moment, “Anything else happened in this connection?”
“I felt happy.” Taiki answered a light blush on his cheeks. “I don’t recall feeling so happy before.”
Yaten smiled, “Well probably helps that you like her. Perhaps your passion for her is what made you so happy in this connection. But perhaps you should be more careful clearly the connection must have overwhelmed her. She is only human after all.”
“I…don’t even know how I did it.” Taiki stated with another sigh looking up at the ceiling.
“Anyways we should head back out there before the fans get riled up.” Seiya suggested.
Yui’s eyes fluttered open to see worried looks from Minako and Makoto. “…What happened?”
Minako sighed with relief, “That’s what we want to know. You were just starting at Taiki then boom! You were out like…a light.”
Yui frowned, “I have no idea to be honest. I just recall hearing him sing louder than anything else. Then I felt dizzy”
“You sure you’re okay?” Makoto asked.
“I’m fine now. Really! Maybe just a little tired at best.” Yui replied with a yawn. She pulled out her phone noticing the time, “No wonder it’s almost 11pm.”
That caused the other two to laugh, now knowing she really was okay for the moment. Before more could be said the boys returned finishing their concert about a few hours later. By that time Yui looked completely drained.
“Come on Yuichan. Once we at least say hi we can take you home okay?” Makoto stated.
“Fine. But I’m sleeping in the car on the way back to Minako’s house.”
“Hey girls!” Seiya greeted gleefully. He frowned slightly seeing no sign of Usagi.
“Sorry Seiya. Usagi had to work at the game shop.” Minako said.
“Oh. Boo. She could have at least texted me.”
Yaten rolled his eyes, “You’ll see her tomorrow for your date.”
Yui yawned leaning on Makoto waving to the boys. Taiki at least went over to her.
“You okay from earlier?”
“I’m fine really!”
He frowned lightly caressing her chin. “You look exhausted.”
“It’s just past my bedtime that’s all. “ She replied with a lazy wave of the hand as if dismissing his worry way.
He lightly chuckled, “You’re adorable.”
“I am not. Just sleepy.” She retorted with a frown.
The others couldn’t help giggling and chucking at her attempted sass.
Taiki only smiled putting his hand back to his side. “I’m relieved you’re okay. Sleepy or not.”
“You’re sweet for worrying so much over little me.” Yui stated going on tip toe and kissing his cheek. His eyes widened and cheeks went pink.
“Haha! I made you blush.” She said with a little victory sign then a giggle. “Looks like you now owe me one less blush.”
Taiki stared at her, “You mischievous woman. Was that your goal?”
“Nope.” She replies sticking out her tongue playfully, “Just a bonus.”
Yaten couldn’t help laughing seeing their little game. “You know Yui sticking out your tongue like that can mean a form of flirting in some places.”
Yui’s eyes widened and caused her to immediately having her tongue retreat back into her mouth. Her cheeks lightly pink.
Taiki lightly poked her cheek, with a teasing smile. “Is this going to become a new game? Cause if so I’m quite a head of you.”
She scowled, “I’ll bite that finger.”
“Oh?” He got slightly closer, “Careful Yuichan. I might like that for all you know.”
Minako lightly elbowed Yaten, “That was mean. She doesn’t know you we were teasing.”
Yaten only shrugged with a smile. “So? It got them to break the ice a little more.”
She sighed putting her hands on her hips eyeing him. “You’re terrible.”
“Oh you know you like it.” He retorted with his own playfully smile.
Makoto rolled her eyes, “If you four are done flirting we should get to Minako’s house before her parents get upset.”
“That’s a good idea.” Minako stated, going over to Yui. “Come on sleepyhead. You can flirt with your prince later.”
She looked back at Yaten, “And you behave yourself.”
“Don’t I always?” Yaten retorted.
