Awakening - Chapter 152
Chapter 214 Contradiction
Sitting in the taxi, Take Asasei has mixed feelings.
She did not understand why she wanted to do this, knowing that there was no point in doing so. But, she still came.
“Miss, we’ve arrived at the movie theater.”
Take Asasei was awakened by the voice of the taxi driver. Looking out of the window, she discovered that she really has arrived.
After she got off and paid the fare, she looked at the front of the movie theater in a daze. Although she never watched a movie in this movie theater, this place was filled with too many bad memories.
Tokyo’s nightlife was very rich. Even now, when it was already past midnight, the lights from various shops continued to shine bright, making people feel that it was not late yet.
She slowly walked toward the restaurant next to the movie theater, wondering if the man was really there or not.
It was a great restaurant, with European-style fine decoration, which looked very fancy. Although it was late at night, the restaurant was still open for business, even though from the outside looking at the inside, there were not that many guests.
“Welcome. May I ask for how many people?” When Take Asasei walked in, a waitress came to greet her.
“Just one.” Take Asasei replied while sweeping her eyes toward the entire dining room from the corner where she stood.
“Please sit down.” The waitress took her to a nearby table.
“I want to sit inside.”
“Okay, please come with me.”
Walking closer and closer, Take Asasei’s heart beat faster. Finally, in one secluded corner, she saw a man in a suit sitting there.
He is still waiting for her. Take Asasei’s heart was filled with a trace of sour.
“I’ll just sit here.” Take Asasei pointed to a nearby table and said to the waitress.
After only ordering a cup of coffee, Take Asasei silently looked at the man sitting in a gloomy light waiting for someone.
After an indeterminate time, Take Asasei lifted the cup of coffee and took a sip, but found that the initially warm coffee has turned cold. This cold coffee tasted bitter than usual and difficult to swallow.
She then remembered that previously, she never drank coffee, but did not know when it began, she started to get used to this slightly bitter beverage; Perhaps she began to be influenced since she started living with her friend.
Thinking of this friend, Take Asasei could not help but smile. Kazumi was always so mature and calm. Perhaps only coffee, this kind of bitter drink, that was a better suit for her. Except in front of her strange brother, she always has a cool expression. She was not pretending to be aloof from bored arrogance, but rather she did not give a d*mn about other people’s opinion. Take Asasei has never met such a girl in her entire life.
Although Kazumi was cold and calm, she has her own unique temperament that can make all the people that came in contact with her unconsciously attracted to her. Perhaps, he was one of them.
Ever since she knew the truth, she always hated that man. Originally, she thought she could quickly forget him, but seeing him almost every day coming to the bookstore looking for Kazumi, her heart was unable to calm down. So much so that on hearing he wanted to wait for Kazumi here, she even foolishly came here to see if he was really here for Kazumi.
Ogata Yasuda did not know that there was a young woman staring at him quietly in the distance.
From eight o’clock in the morning to one o’clock past midnight, he already felt his whole body went numb. Unable to remember how many cups of coffee that he drank, only now he discovered that drinking too much coffee will become bitter.
That woman did not come. Actually, at that time, from her cold eyes, he knew that this would be the result. After forcing himself to continue to wait for her, he began to suspect that he has a masochistic tendency.
At this time, except for the young man and woman, there was no other guest. Besides the constantly reverberating music in the dining room, it was quiet.
After an indeterminate time later, the waitress went to Take Asasei and said: “I am sorry, miss, we would like to close, would you please come again tomorrow?”
Take Asasei looked at the watch; It was two o’clock in the morning. She immediately stood up and said: “I am sorry, I will go now.” Finally, after glancing at Ogata Yasuda at the corner, she walked toward the counter.
When she was checking out at the counter, she heard the man’s voice, “Call your manager, I want to reserve this entire dining room.”
The waitress very awkwardly said to him: “Sir, we really have to close, would you please come back tomorrow?”
Ogata Yasuda somewhat testily said: “I said I want the entire restaurant for myself, call your manager, now!”
That waitress had no choice but to go running to look for the restaurant manager.
Hearing this, Take Asasei secretly sighed and then walked out of the restaurant.
“His grandma, how on earth did they know we’re here?” Rei Li swore in a low voice while loading the submachine gun.
When they were ready to attack those attackers from behind, unexpectedly, they were ambushed. Dozens of men in black surrounded them. Moreover, those espers were also waiting for them there. Fortunately, they quickly threw a flash grenade and, taking advantage of the resulting confusion, went to the East of the woods.
But they can only run for a short time because the east side of the woods was very small. Soon, they were quickly surrounded by that dozens of men in black once again.
At this time they heard the twins said to the men in black: “Kill everyone except for Rei Li and the man who killed Robert. We want to slowly kill that guy.”
Chapter 214 Contradiction Part 2
“Your excellency, I’ll distract them, you guys can break through to the left.” Chang’an said to Lei Yin in a low voice.
Lei Yin shook his head and said: “It’s useless, their firepower is too fierce, moreover, there are several espers on their side, several people can do nothing to them.”
“Then what should we do, master?”
“How many grenades do we have left?” Lei Yin asked.
After counting the individual grenade, Rei Li replied: “There are twenty of them.”
Lei Yin thought for a moment, “That’s almost enough. As soon as we throw the grenades, as long as we can rush to the nearby perimeter, where our people are many, we should be safe there. When it start, I’ll lead the way, little Rei and Chang’an will be responsible for the two sides. The other team members will be responsible for the rear. Is that clear?”
Just as they were about to execute their plan, Rei Li suddenly rose up into the air without a warning.
“It’s those espers, shoot, now!” Lei Yin held Rei Li by the foot with one hand to stop him from rising even higher. At the same time, he opened fire using his right hand toward the front. Chang’an and the other team members also continued to shoot at the front.
Because the force that let Rei Li’s body rose was too strong, Lei Yin was unable to pull him down and had to constantly strengthen his internal force to pull Rei Li down. Being pulled by two powerful forces on opposite sides, Rei Li felt that his left leg would soon break off. But he endured the severe pain without uttering a single word for fear that it would affect his master.
At this time, Chang’an saw a man in black on the left fired four bullets right at Lei Yin’s chest.
Without thinking, Chang’an threw himself in front of Lei Yin.
“Pop, pop!” Several bullets hit Chang’an on the chest.
“Your excellency, I am okay….” Before he finished talking, he suddenly threw a mouthful of blood.
Although his bulletproof vest saved him from a fatal blow, because it was too close, the impact of the bullets hurt his internal organs.
After backhanding the man in black with the rifle butt, Lei Yin immediately machine-gunned his surrounding.
“Since you unexpectedly killed Robert, we will absolutely not let you off. I want you to watch them die in front of you one by one.” At this time, from the forest in front of them came the twin’s resentful voice.
Seeing Chang’an panting hard after vomiting blood and Rei Li stuck in mid-air, Lei Yin’s eyes changed.
“Your excellency….” The first one to see the change in Lei Yin’s eyes was Chang’an, who immediately alarmed.
“Since other people want to play, I’ll play with them till the end.” Lei Yin said and then threw away the submachine gun in his hand.
“Your excellency, no….” Chang’an, who seemed to know what he wanted to do, immediately tried to stop him.
“Help me pull little Rei.” While speaking, Lei Yin’s body was suddenly suffused with a previously seen vague strange gloss
“Your excellency!” Chang’an called out with red eyes and then held the-floating-in-mid-air Rei Li with both of his hands.
After letting loose of Rei Li’s left leg, Lei Yin pulled out a sword from his waist.
Then, he suddenly disappeared in front of Chang’an, as if by chance blew by the breeze.
Hearing the sound of water spray from inside the bathroom stopped, Take Asasei knew that Kazumi would come out soon. She immediately felt a bit uneasy and restless.
Sure enough, before long, dressed in a bathrobe and a slightly damp hair, Kazumi walked out from the bathroom.
Sitting on the couch, Kazumi rubbed her damp hair with a towel.
“Kazumi….” Take Asasei gently called out.
“What’s the matter?” Kazumi turned to look at her.
“I, I have something to tell you.”
Seeing her hesitant look, Kazumi put down the towel, “Is there something wrong, little Take?”
Take Asasei lowered her head and said: “It’s like this. That, that guy is still in the dining room waiting for you.”
“That guy? You mean Ogata Yasuda?”
“Yes, last night, he waited for you for the whole night. Now, he is still waiting for you at that restaurant.”
Kazumi frowned, “How did you know he waited for me for the whole night? Did you go see him?”
“Yes, I went there last night and this afternoon.”
“Little Take, you don’t need to pay attention to that person. He’s just acting.”
“No, he’s not. I can see that he’s really sincere this time. Go look at him, okay?” Take Asasei pleaded.
“I am not going to see him. That guy has nothing to do with me.” Kazumi stood up and walked to her room.
Take Asasei immediately took her hand and very emotionally said: “I beg you, Kazumi. Please go to the appointment, okay? If you don’t, he’ll probably continue to wait there.”
Seeing the girl’s tear-filled eyes, Kazumi could not help but gawk a bit. Until now, she did not really appreciate how deep Take Asasei’s feeling for Ogata Yasuda really is.
“Kazumi, I beg you….Please go to the appointment, okay?” This time, Take Asasei has been choked with tears, yet she still firmly held Kazumi’s hand.
With a sigh, Kazumi lifted Take Asasei’s face and used the towel to wipe the tears from her face, and then said: “Don’t cry, I’ll go.”
Chapter 214 Contradiction Part 3
Hearing this, Take Asasei excitedly asked: “Is this true?”
Kazumi nodded her head and then said: “Just this once and never again.”
“Thank you, Kazumi.” Take Asasei very happily hugged her.
Looking at his slightly pale face on the mirror, Ogata Yasuda wryly smiled, the man in the mirror instantly followed with a rueful smile.
Crazy, I must be crazy. I have never waited for anyone for more than ten minutes. But, I actually sit here for a day and a night, just to wait for that woman who is impossible to appear. Perhaps to keep myself going, I numb my body with my masochistic tendency.
Coming out from the restroom, Yasuda returned to his seat. The coffee on the table has been replaced with water. Because he felt that if he continues to drink, he may really be poisoned because of high caffeine.
Looking at his watch, he found that it was already ten o’clock in the evening. However, to him, there was no difference between ten o’clock in the evening and ten o’clock in the morning. Right now, he was not only waiting for that woman, he also wanted to know when the idea of “give up” will appear in his mind.
At this time, a person came up. Thinking that it was the waitress who wanted to refill his glass of water, Yasuda closed his eyes, too lazy to take a look.
After a while, he felt strange that he has yet to hear the sound of someone pouring the water. When he opened his eyes, he saw the cold look of a woman standing next to the table looking at him.
“Kazumi!” Ogata Yasuda stood up, showing his “I can’t believe this” look.
After slowly pulling the chair opposite of him, Kazumi sat down.
Ogata Yasuda watched from the side as she sat down.
Looking at his slightly messy suit and a bit tilted hair, Kazumi started to believe that he was really here for a day and a night.
“May I ask your order?” A waitress came up and asked. While asking, she quietly sized Kazumi up, to see what this girl, who can make this guy wait for a day and a night, really look like.
“No need, thank you,” Kazumi replied.
The waitress looked at the handsome man, only to find that he was staring at the girl as if he did not hear her at all, so she had to bitterly walk away.
“Kazumi, you’re finally here.” Ogata Yasuda dryly coughed and said.
“Why are you looking for me?” Kazumi coldly said.
“Has anyone ever told you that you really look beautiful in a dress?” After a moment of silence, Ogata Yasuda suddenly said something senseless.
Kazumi frowned, “You asked me out just to say this silly thing?”
“Kazumi, I like you, would you like to be my girlfriend?” Ogata Yasuda suddenly grabbed her right hand and said.
Kazumi angrily pulled her hand, stood up and ready to leave.
Ogata Yasuda hastened to stand in front of her and said: “Kazumi, I really mean it, please give me a chance okay?”
“I told you, I don’t want to waste my time to play this silly game with you, get out of my way.” Kazumi coldly looked at him.
Yasuda held her shoulders and excitedly said: “This is not a game, I really like you.”
“If you don’t let go of me, I won’t be polite anymore.”
Seeing the anger in Kazumi’s eyes, Yasuda immediately loosened his hands and said: “Kazumi, please let me explain it clearly to you, okay?”
Looking at his serious face, Kazumi thought for a moment and finally slowly returned to her seat.
Overjoyed, Yasuda quickly sat back to his seat, collected his thoughts and then said: “I can personally guarantee that this is not a game. I admit, at first, I pursued you just so that I can get back at you. But slowly, I discovered that I really like you. Kazumi, please give me a chance? I mean it.”
Kazumi said nothing, just quietly watching him. In this silent atmosphere, Ogata Yasuda felt an unprecedented tension.
After a while, Kazumi finally spoke, “I refuse.”
Ogata Yasuda’s facial expression changed; He said: “I am not asking you to be my girlfriend now, but only to try to accept me, is this too much to ask?”
Kazumi calmly said: “Honestly, until now I still can’t believe that you would like an ordinary woman like me. But even if it’s true, my answer will still be the same. Therefore, please don’t come looking for me in the future.”
“Why?” Yasuda could not help but become emotional.
“Not every question has an answer. Tell you one thing, the reason I came to this appointment is because little Take had cried and begged me to do it. She had twice secretly come to see you. Even if you had done that excessive thing to her, she still has such a concern for you; Do you know what kind of girl that you hurt?” With that, Kazumi stood up and walked out.
This time, Yasuda did not stop her, just staring at her back as she left.
After a while, he suddenly shouted at her back: “I will not give up.”
Kazumi walked out of the restaurant as if she did not hear anything.
After she walked out of the restaurant, Ogata Yasuda feebly sat down.
