“Mirio, you are absent-minded!” Ryuu ripped furiously her bowtie apart and threw it on the dressing table, one moment later she leaned against it.
“Ryuu-san, I’m sorry!” The blonde girl walked towards the substantial older woman and grabbed her shoulders from behind, but the Kumichou shook her off and went a few steps in another direction.
“Where are you with your thoughts? Did something happen?” She took off the ruby-colored velvet jacket sat down on a chair a few seconds later and stared at Mirio, which was standing in her Z-Boy outfit in front of her and didn’t know how to start with an explanation. An awkward silence took over and Mirio stared embarrassed to the floor.
“God dammit, talk to me! Where were your emotions till now? I haven’t felt anything on stage. You are acting bland.” Ryuu stood up enraged and went to the window; put her hands in her pants pockets.
The younger in the room was scared that the Kumichou would get to know about her and Shimon; she was truly hoping that Shimon didn’t say a word to anyone. Since a few days the younger girls were meeting regularly, were spending a lot of time together and enjoyed their togetherness. Mirio wasn’t aware till that moment that Ryuu got the short end of the stick all the time and now everything was clear to her. She has never seen her lover that angry, she really was afraid just to take a step in front of her.
“Mirio-chan… you know what I feel for you.” Suddenly the older sounded calmer and reasonable again; she turned around to the blonde girl and took a deep breath.
“I was just worried, I’m sorry if I have overreacted.” Mirio was relieved when she noticed that Ryuu had apparently no idea from the things Mirio was doing.
Now she plucked up courage and stepped towards the older woman and embraced her with self-confidence.
“I’m also sorry - really. It’s just, that I’m feeling currently a bit overloaded, that’s why I’m not really on the track. I try to change that instantly.” She embraced her lover firmer and laid her head on her shoulder.
“Too bad, that there is just so little time left…” Mirio grinned widely and also Ryuu knew instantly for what Mirio was up to, that’s why she pushed the younger a bit away to look into her eyes.
“Well, I have plenty of time after show.” Mirio couldn’t overhear the seductive voice of Ryuu, put on a slightly smile and nodded.
“I try to be here as fast as I can.” With a tender kiss Mirio sealed these words and went straight to the door.
“We are meeting again on stage soon.” She threw behind her.
“In my favorite scene…” Added Ryuu and blew a last kiss to the younger girl.
As fast as possible ran Mirio to her dressing room, but right when she was going around the corner another blonde girl bumped into her.
“Mirio-kun! I-I… am sorry.” But before Shimon could formulate the rest of her excuse Mirio pulled her into her dressing room.
She locked the door directly after they stepped in and hoped that nobody outside has seen them.
“Hey, listen, we can’t meet tonight.” First still really self-confident was it now hard to speak out these words.
“Why not?” Shimon didn’t know what has happened.
“You said we would meet each other tonight in front of the cinema and later we are going to your place.”
“It won’t happen tonight.” Mirio tried to be neutral and as cold as possible but inside it was hurting her to break Shimon’s heart like this.
The latter turned to the wall and let her head hang down; she tried to understand why Mirio rejected her like this.
“We are doing it another time – I promise!” With her forefinger she lifted the chin of the younger and searched for her eyes, but she almost couldn’t handle the sad gleam in them.
“Don’t look like that. I don’t like it either that we can’t meet, but as I mentioned before we’ll doing it another time.” She gave Shimon a passionate kiss which the other reciprocated instantly.
And then there was again this fire, this spark of passion which made Mirio and Shimon shudder. The older has never felt like this with Ryuu and was wondering why it was so different with her.
If the show break would have last longer, Mirio would have seduced the younger girl instantly on her couch.
Their kiss seemed endless, but after a while the both separated again. The sadness in Shimon’s eyes were fading away, the happiness came back.
“Now leave quickly and pay attention that no one will discover you here.” With a cheeky grin Mirio stroke across Shimon’s cheek until this girl opened slowly and quietly the door to vanish behind it.
She followed Mirio’s advice but she didn’t notice that from the other hallway another colleague came and observed Shimon how she sneaked out of Mirio’s dressing room…
The latter in the meantime checked her costume again for the beginning of the second act and powdered herself again.
“Asumi-san, just a few minutes left till the start of the second act.” A guy from the staff knocked on every closed door to let the actresses know when they have to be ready.
Mirio really had to be ready; she was one of the people who started in the second act. But at once she was feeling so unwell. To be with Shimon was totally different from her experiences with Ryuu, the emotions were more intensive. Anyway she was meeting again with the Kumichou; also that she didn’t get the feeling something could be wrong. She didn’t know what was happening to her, but she was afraid that she might fell in love with Shimon. And this couldn’t be good. Even in their own private rooms they would have to hide. Ryuu didn’t show it off, but she was defending everything that she loved – and Mirio was a part of that.
The blonde girl sighed loudly and went to the door.
‘Alright, let’s go.’ She went through the hallway and stepped onto the still dark stage, but she already knew that she couldn’t look Ryuu into her eyes…
