“Ah, move here. I didn’t like that picture!” Kira whined.
“Come on… you guys look fine. Let’s go in already.” Derek sighed. “Oh! My foot!”
“You… go get us some drinks!” Akiko snapped at him before removing her heel from his foot.
“What did I do? Damn… I have a limp now.”
“This is a girl thing. You wouldn’t understand!” She crossed her arms and sniffed. “Off with you!”
“Damn it… fine…” He limped away, shooting back an angry glare before continuing on into the main hall where the refreshments and dancefloor were set up.
Where we were standing, we could hear the deep thrums of the bass as something loud was playing over the speakers. We had just arrived and stopped to get our pictures, but after two tries Kira still kept trying to move me.
“What is wrong?” I finally asked as she tried to place me in an awkward position.
“You can’t ask a woman that!” Akiko snapped at me.
“No, it’s fine!” Kira blushed. “I don’t want to hide anything from Hakaru. It’s just… I’ve been gaining weight recently. You didn’t notice, did you?”
“Of course not!” I lied.
She touched her belly, which, despite being wrapped, protruded a bit. It wasn’t the only thing bigger. Her behind, her breasts, and even her cheeks and gained a few. How could I not notice? However, she wasn’t fat by any means, and she was still a beauty that was way more than I deserved. She was easily as beautiful as my mom and sister. Ah… why did I think of them when I considered beauty? I shook my head and then gave a genuine smile.
“Kira, you’re a beautiful woman. It doesn’t matter what angle you’re at. I love every part of you.”
“Smooth, Hakaru… smooth.” Akiko snickered.
“You want to get smacked!” I shot back and glared at her for ruining the moon.
“Mmm… just pull my hair when you do it!” She shot back.
“You think I won’t?”
“I’m hoping you will!”
The pair of us had closed the distance between each other while snapping back and forth, and suddenly I found my mouth only a few inches from hers. For some reason, I had a sudden extreme urge to kiss her. More than kiss her, I wanted to push her down and strip her of her clothing. It was extremely powerful and even felt like it was a natural feeling for a second.
“Hahaha!” Laughter snapped me out of that moment, and I backed away quickly, my eyes shooting worriedly to Kira.
My cheeks were red, and Akiko also wore a slight pink color on her cheeks. I had suddenly realized what we were saying. It was flat out flirting, and it left me feeling a bit excited as blood rushed to certain areas. In fact, our words were pretty naughty, even for flirting. Worst of all, I had done it right in front of my girlfriend. She wasn’t angry or jealous. Rather, she seemed happy and amused and was looking at the pair of us fondly. This caused me to tremble for a second with confusion.
“S-sorry…” Akiko apologized to her immediately.
Kira waved her handoff. “No, it’s actually alright. I like seeing the two of you argue and fight. I don’t know why it just feels right. Is that weird?”
“A little…” I said.
“So weird.” Akiko nodded.
This time, all three of us broke into laughter, which was the state we were in when Derek finally returned with three drinks. The person he did not bring a drink to was me.
“I slipped a little drink into it…” Derek whispered mischievously.
Kira, who was bringing her cup to her mouth, stopped. “Oh… then I can’t have this. Here Hakaru.”
“Ah… sure.” I took the drink before blinking. “Ah… why can’t you drink?”
“Huh? Um… I don’t know…” She blinked in confusion, but then smiled and shot Derek a death-stare. “Probably because he’s trying to get me drunk so you can put your hands on me tonight!”
“What’s that? I don’t know what you’re talking about?”
Akiko snorted. “Don’t act like we don’t know you guys got a pair of rooms for tonight. So naughty.”
“W-wait… that…” I tried to defend us.
“You caught us!” Derek laughed it off. “Sorry man, I tried to get her drunk for you, but now not only won’t she be loose tonight, but you’ll have whisky dick!”
“Shut up!” I cursed as Derek snickered. “I can take my alcohol; thank you very much!”
As if to make my point, I downed the glass in a single throw.
“That’s my man…” Kira giggled, moving and giving me a kiss while fixing my jacket. “And as for tonight, if you play your cards right, the answer will be yes.”
My eyes widened, and her cheeks turned red before she gave me a tight hug. I held her for a moment, but Derek and Akiko who didn’t seem to be in any particular honeymoon period, quickly became uncomfortable with the scene. Akiko reached out and pulled on Kira.
“Come on, let’s go dance!”
“What about us?” I cried as Kira and Akiko ran off onto the dance floor.
“You’ll just have to chase us!” Akiko called back with a raised hand.
“After you…” Derek gestured.
“Ladies first?” I snorted, making an identical gesture.
The pair of us threw back our heads and laughed at the same time. Then both ran for the main room at the same time. We headed to the door at the same time and fought a bit until Derek burst through triumphantly. He held up his hands victoriously as I glared at him.
“What a couple of idiots…” A pair of girls whispered as they passed by.
Derek dropped his hands, his smile turning to a frown while I let out a snicker.
“You know, Hakaru,” He turned to me seriously. “One day, all these women will be our bitches.”
He nodded, straightening his tie. “We’ll be seniors soon. We can rule this school. Why have just one woman, when we can each have a dozen?”
I raised an eyebrow and smirked. “I don’t know. I’m happy with just one, bro. Haven’t you heard about biting off more than you can chew?”
“Nonsense! You should always shoot for the sky. Akiko is just the start. I want to make a harem one of these days.”
“Really?” I openly broke into a grin at this. “You can barely handle Akiko, shouldn’t you worry about sealing the deal with her rather than trying to score with someone else?”
“Dude… look, listen, tonight, we’re going to have both girls, one in each room, right?”
“Um, well, I’ll have my girl in my room, and you’ll have you in yours.”
“That’s what I’m saying!” Derek laughed. “Let’s switch places!”
“…what?” My brow furrowed.
“Like, we let the girls go before us, and then we switch places. You give me Kira’s key, and I give you Akiko. Then we bang each other’s girl.”
“What? You want Kira? Wh-why?”
“Come on… once Kira tastes my dick, she’ll totally want more, and I’m sure Akiko will be down for it too. I’ve seen how she looks at you. I don’t think she’s totally over you.”
“Dude…” I shook my head.
“Hear me out! Since the girls have been with both of us, they’ll be more… loose. Once you get two girls, the third will fall easily. With two girls pressuring the third, she’ll join quickly. Then it’s just a matter of adding whoever we want.”
“The harem, dude!”
“You want my girlfriend in your harem?” I didn’t know if I wanted to be angry or bewildered, as I had never seen this side of Derek.
“Not my harem. Our harem! We’ll share the girls together. That’s how we’ll get more to join. Whether they like you or me, we present it as a package deal. We’ll even use Akiko and Kira to catfish some more girls for us.”
“First… I’m pretty sure that’s rape, which I am vehemently against.” I declared, causing him to roll his eyes. “Second, I don’t like the idea of sharing women…”
“It’s just temporary! Once we get five or six, we can split them up, and each takes half.”
“They’re not collector’s cards.”
“It doesn’t matter, man. We can make it work. But we need that seed of two women. I’m asking you to give up one slut to land yourself a harem! Come on, are you in?”
“No!” I responded furiously. “I haven’t even fucked Kira, and you want to have her? The hell if I’m giving her first time to you!”
“Hehe… you honestly think Kira is a virgin?”
“The fuck you say?”
Derek held up his hands. “S-sorry… hey, forget I said anything. I was just dreaming out loud. I’ll tell you what, enjoy Kira tonight, but think about it. You could be swimming in pussy if you’re but man enough to pursue the dream.”
“Just think about it. We don’t have to do anything tonight, alright? We cool?”
I frowned, but after he gave me a pathetic look, I sighed, and we bumped fists. “Yeah, we’re cool.”
After that, we went off and found the girls as they were dancing on the floor. Kira got tired quickly and went to sit down, but Akiko was willing to dance a bit more. I danced with Kira a few times. She then ran off to the bathroom.
“Are you okay?” I asked when she got back.
“Ah… I threw up.” She said, “Probably just got excited.”
“Are you sure, I can take you home…”
“Wh-what about the hotel?” She asked worriedly.
“It’s fine. If you’re sick, it doesn’t have to happen.” I responded with a tight smile.
It hurt saying that, but it was also fine. I could always use my hand… on prom night. Well, I certainly wasn’t going to share Akiko with Derek! I wondered if he’d be acting so cocky if I offered that as our first option toward “getting girls more willing to explore.” I couldn’t help but shake my head.
“N-no… I’ll be fine!” She insisted. “I want to…”
Her words drifted off as she looked up at me. I started leaning in to kiss her.
“Have you seen Derek?” Akiko’s voice broke us apart.
“Ah… what?” I pulled away from her regretfully, but seeing as she just threw up, it probably was a good idea we didn’t kiss until she got something to drink.
“Derek? He’s disappeared on me! Ah… and a slow song is playing! Rats!” Looking around, her eyes then fell on me. “Hakaru, dance with me!”
“It’s okay!” Kira said, smiling and then patting my hand. “Go dance with Akiko. I’m still a little nauseous. I’m just going to get something to drink, okay?”
I allowed Akiko to pull me out onto the dance floor, and soon I found her in my arms. Her familiar scent calmed me immensely, and I wrapped my arms around her, pulling our bodies close. As we moved slowly, my hips pushed against hers, and she pushed back. I could feel her breath on my neck and feel her heart pounding in her chest. Why did this feel so good?
Less than a year ago, I had caught Akiko and Derek having sex. I had broken it off with her, and she ended up dating Derek. That was the end to it. I had forgiven both of them. Derek was my best friend, and it was true there was nothing between Akiko and me. Yet, right now, Akiko felt so good and so right. Was I not over her as I had thought? I glanced over to the chairs where Kira was sitting. She was lightly tapping her foot and smiling as she watched us dance. So, trusting… No… I can’t let myself two-time the woman I love. A harem life was impossible…
“Music finished…” Akiko said gently.
I had still been moving, even though the music was gone. The pair of us broke apart awkwardly, and then we both went back to Kira, who still didn’t show an ounce of jealousy.
The three of us went looking and eventually found Derek near the end of the evening. He had been dancing lewdly with another girl. She was dressed in a very slutty dress. Her skirt was cut so high you could see her underwear, and her dress dipped down and exposed the area between her breasts. She wasn’t even hiding rubbing her ass on Derek’s crotch while bent over in front of him. If the teachers saw it, they would have broken it up. Derek also shamelessly had an erection. They’d basically be having sex if they weren’t in clothing.
“Hey… Eiko.” I responded awkwardly.
Now that I thought about it, if he did want a harem, a girl like Eiko would probably be his best bet. I had dated her myself, and she had cheated on me awfully. Well, I didn’t find that out until later. Her reputation as a school slut rose shortly after we broke up.
“Hakaru… you want a ride?” She winked, even going so far as to rub her ass provocatively.
“Derek!” Akiko admonished while Kira gave him a disapproving look.
After I shook my head, Eiko only shrugged before finding another guy to rub up on. As for Derek, he shrugged helplessly like guys would be guys. Surprisingly, Akiko didn’t seem that angry at him. After a brief admonishment, she finished.
“So, what’s up?” He asked after apologizing to Akiko.
“It’s time. We’re leaving the party.”
“Excellent!” He smiled with teeth. “Let’s move this party to somewhere a bit more private, shall we ladies?”
For some reason, I had a bad feeling in my gut. I found myself wishing Kira was a little sicker and that we left when we had the chance. There was no turning back now.
