[Multi-chap] Plotting with the devil 8/??

Hi Minna-san!! I've to ask for forgiveness for this long wait >.<
Well, actually I lost contact with my beta and I was indecisive. But I decided to post it anyway.

Just a note: it's beta-ed by myself so I'm not sure about the grammar. If any of you is a beta and want to help me, I'd be really grateful m(_ _)m
But stop with the chit-chatting!

EDIT: fortunately andreja1989 helped me with the beta so I'm sure it is more enjoyable to read now ^^ 

Beta: myself (??) andreja1989 *a big thanks*
Genre: angst, romance
Pairing: Sakuraiba, Ohmiya
Disclaimer: I don't own any of them, but they surely own my heart ♥

Since the day Aiba left Sakurai's apartment, a whole week has passed without any contact between them. Nino helped Aiba to cheer up and asked Sakurai to not meet up with him. After some complains, the lawyer agreed but never failed to show up at the Blue Rose. That Monday either.
"Irashaimasen Sakurai-sama." Jun greeted smiling and accompanying him to their table. They passed by Aiba but the lawyer didn't look at him and Aiba felt his heart aching.
"Daijobu desu ka?" Asked his guest.
"Hai!" He answered with a fake smile.
When Sho and Jun reached their place and sat down, as usually in the past week, Sakurai asked Jun how Aiba was behaving. He wished to know if he was cheerful as always or sad, if he was late, if there was something different with him but Jun was tired of all those questions so he said politely:
"Sakurai-san, I'm not Aiba-chan's mother and I have no time to stalk about him. Why are you so obsessed with him?"
"It's not that I'm obsessed, I'm just... a little worried, yes, I'm worried" he said like he was trying to convince himself.
"If you blush like that, I would guess you are in love, Sakurai-san."
"Eh? No, why?" A shocked Sakurai asked to the amused host, "Is it shown so much?"
Jun gave him his artful smile and an idea flashed in his mind. "Wait for me, Sakurai-san. I'll bring something to drink."
In the meanwhile, Sakurai looked for Aiba and froze when he saw him coming towards his table.
"Konbawa, Sakurai-san."
"K-konbawa." He stumbled on his words because he wasn't ready for this situation. Not that he didn't wish for it, after all he spent the whole week thinking about Aiba and how to help him. It just was something unexpected.
"Jun-kun asked me to keep you company for a while, is it okay?"
"Of course! Sit down!" He immediately replied with a high tension, remembering to thank Jun-kun.
"Ah... you don't have anything to drink, I'll go..."
"Iie, iie. I don't need it."
Aiba wasn't so excited to be with Sakurai-san. He was trying to forget him and this situation didn't help him in any way. They stayed silent sitting next to each other. Sho was staring at Aiba and the host had his look fixed on the floor. It was an awkward moment for both of them but Sakurai's curiosity took the lead and he asked:
"A no~ Aiba-chan?"
"Is everything okay now?"
"Hai." The host replied smiling while on the inside he wished to scream that nothing was okay, that he was lonely and longing for Sakurai-san to hug him but kept everything hidden behind his fake smile. On the contrary, the lawyer felt a little less unsure and dared to ask: "So can we see each other again?"
"Iie." Aiba's straight reply broke Sakurai's wall and, unexpectedly uneasy, he said:
"Why? Have I done something wrong? Ninomiya-san didn't explain anything, he just asked me to stay away from you and I'm worried."
"You did nothing wrong. As Nino already said, I just need to be away from you."
"It's for your own sake..." Suddenly Aiba fixed his teary look into Sakurai's eyes. "Onegai Sakurai-san."
Upon seeing all that sadness in Aiba's eyes, Sho felt his heart aching but didn't show it. On the contrary he kept his cool behavior and made a cold reply: "Ok, I won't be around anymore. I promise..."
Aiba felt relieved and hurt at the same time. Thanks to that promise, they really wouldn't see each other again and just the thought made him sad. Like the whole week that just passed, he couldn't help but think about Sakurai-san and how he missed him. He finally understood how much he fell in love with him and every night he was longing for Sakurai to show up at the club. But now everything would be over. He felt like crying but tried his best to give the lawyer a bright smile.
"Arigato, Sakurai-san."
"But..." Sho continued, "...for the last time, come to visit me tonight. It will be our farewell." The host looked embarrassed and nodded when Sakurai stood up and with a sweet smile, said: "Then I'll be waiting for you at home." After that he got up and left the club.

It was already 1AM and the club had just a few more guests. Jun asked the owner to let Aiba go home because he knew his sweet fellow had to meet Sakurai-san. Aiba thanked and greeted everyone with his bright smile and then ran towards Sakurai's home. His heart was beating faster and faster and his mind was filled with the desire to see Sakurai-san. He rushed through the stairs, stopped in front of Sakurai's door, took a deep breath and ... the door opened before he could knock on it. Surprise was written all over his face.
"Oh! O-isashiburi desu."
"What...what are you doing here?"
His ex-boyfriend was right in front of him and replied with the usual arrogant tone: "Business."
"Ninomiya and that lawyer want to put a spoke in your wheel. Can you believe it?"
"Nino...?" No, his best friend wouldn’t do anything behind his back.
"Yes, your friend. He wants to stop you from being a host."
Masaki pushed Matsuoka out of the way and went in. He found Ninomiya and Sakurai still talking to each other about some bet.
"...I’m really in love now and you also found Matsuoka thanks to our bet."
"We have to let Aiba-chan know."
The two of them looked like they were happy and that pissed off Aiba more and more.
"I already know..." He whispered with anger.
Both the lawyer and the gamer turned towards the man who just spoke. Aiba looked at them with disappointment, feeling betrayed.
"Ma-chan... I can explain."
"Explain what? That you're doing 'business' behind my back with Sakurai-san and that bastard?"
"It's not like that."
"You stay out of this!" He shouted at Sakurai and then turned towards Nino again. "In what way do I have to interpret what is happening? You promised there would never be secrets between us."
Nino was shocked by Aiba's reaction and he couldn't do anything but stare stunned at his friend's hurt expression. Matsuoka, who looked amused at the whole scene, laughed and patted Nino's shoulder, saying:
"Good job, Ninomiya. Well, actually Masaki, I think it's your fault. You always put too much trust in people."
"You're right, like I did with you, traitor! I really hoped to never meet you again but I'm unlucky" His mind came back to those sadly happy times, when he was in love with Matsuoka and swallowed anything bad his boyfriend was doing to him because he thought it was his way to show his feelings and if Aiba helped him, he surely would change or maybe was just what Aiba thought at that time.
"See, you always put the blame on luck. Why do you think they did all this shit? Because you're a nuisance for them."
PANG! Aiba's punch hit his ex-boyfriend's face. Matsuoka repeated that word endless times when they were together until he almost believed in it. But now he couldn't stand it anymore, it hurt. His eyes became teary and his voice cracked like he was going to cry at any moment.
"Don't worry, I won't be a nuisance anymore" Saying that he turned around and ran away. 


Ok, you're right. It's too short! But I was able to write a lot in this period so I have already a few chapters ready and I decided to post once a week ^^
Thanks for reading 'til now m(_ _)m
