Diamond Tongue


I lay on the bed, smiling. “Talk to me.” Tomie looked at me with red cheeks.

“I like you,” she mumbled. I pursed my lips, tilting my head.

“I can’t hear you.”

Her lips tremble as she clenches her fists. “I like you!”

I move within inches of those thick, pouty lips of hers. “Very good.” I pull her in with one kiss. Tomie’s girlfriend is gone on another business trip this weekend. My honey just sent me the text to invite me over. But…

I pulled away and noticed the worry in her eyes. “What’s the matter?”

Tomie pressed her lips together, shaking her head. “It’s nothing.” I leaned back on her bed with my arms behind my head.

“You aren’t a good liar sometimes. What’s wrong?” She clenched her fists at her sides as she lowered her head.

“Hanako called me just before you got here,” Tomie confessed.

“And?” I asked. Just by the way she wasn’t looking at me told me that I wasn’t going to like what I was about to hear.

“She just called to check on me,” my honey said.


“She said that she loved me.”

I flopped back onto the bed, groaning. This shit again? That’s all Tomie talks about lately. Hanako, Hanako, Hanako, fucking Hanako. I rolled my eyes.

“Can we forget about her for a change?” I asked.

“But…” Tomie said. I turned over on my side.

“Why does Hanako have to be such a cockblock?”

“She’s my girlfriend.”

“Yes, you keep telling me this every time we hook up!” I got up and headed out the door.

“Izumi-chan, wait!” Tomie pleaded. She grabbed onto my arm just as my foot stepped into the hallway.

“Are we seriously going to be this dumb game again?” I asked. She leaned her head against my back.

“Please don’t go,” she said.

“Her or me?” I asked.


“Her or me?”

“Please don’t do this.”

“Her or me? Pick one!”

“I can’t choose…”

I dropped my shoulders, sighing. I already knew how this back and forth would end. “Fine.” Tomie hugged me from behind.

“I love you, Izumi-chan,” she whispered. I don’t know how much more of this back and forth I can take as long as Hanako keeps cock blocking me.
