Tokyo Story II
Baby Doll looked around the bus stop. ï¿½So this is Tokyo?ï¿½ she asked. ï¿½It still manages to surprise me every time I come back here.ï¿½
ï¿½Yep,ï¿½ Masayuki replied. The angel looked over at him.
ï¿½So you used to live here?ï¿½ she asked.
ï¿½Yeah,ï¿½ he answered.
ï¿½So why did you leave?ï¿½ the angel asked. Masayuki looked away rather sheepishly.
ï¿½I donï¿½t want to talk about it,ï¿½ he admitted. Baby Doll raised an eyebrow at him.
ï¿½Oh?ï¿½ she asked. Masayuki tried to keep his brave face.
ï¿½Can you just drop it?ï¿½ he asked. ï¿½I donï¿½t want to talk about it.ï¿½
ï¿½And why not?ï¿½ Baby Doll pushed.
ï¿½Just drop it!ï¿½ he snapped. The angel put up her hands to calm him down.
ï¿½Okay, okay,ï¿½ she said. ï¿½Letï¿½s just go.ï¿½
ï¿½Thank you,ï¿½ Masayuki said. Both headed down the street. He turned his head to face her.
ï¿½So, what all are we doing again?ï¿½ he asked.
ï¿½To the library first and then the police station,ï¿½ Baby Doll answered.
ï¿½Library and police station,ï¿½ Masayuki repeated back. ï¿½Got you.ï¿½ Another thought crossed his head. ï¿½You know something,ï¿½ he said.
ï¿½What?ï¿½ she asked. He fought back a chuckle as he looked up and down at her uniform. Baby Doll narrowed her eyes at him.
ï¿½What?ï¿½ she asked again. Masayuki gave her a little shrug.
ï¿½You and I look like we could be boyfriend and girlfriend,ï¿½ he said outright. The boy tried to reach around and take hold of her waist. Baby Doll slapped him on the arm as fast as she could.
ï¿½Donï¿½t touch me, you idiot!ï¿½ she shouted. Masayuki drew back his arm, smiling in pain.
ï¿½I was just kidding!ï¿½ he said aloud. Baby Doll snorted as she faced forward.
ï¿½You are such a creepy bastard,ï¿½ she said with gritted teeth.
ï¿½It was a joke,ï¿½ he repeated.
ï¿½Donï¿½t talk to me for the rest of this trip,ï¿½ the angel hissed at him.
ï¿½Fine,ï¿½ Masayuki said. ï¿½Iï¿½m sorry I upset you, princess.ï¿½ She walked ahead of him. Masayuki frowned, shaking his head. Canï¿½t she take a joke? He jogged to catch up with her as they rounded the corner. Silence carried on until they reached the public library after Baby Doll read the directions. He walked up and opened the glass door.
ï¿½After you, princess,ï¿½ Masayuki said. Baby Doll stuck out her tongue and walked by him. Still bitter about earlier, I see, the boy thought before he followed her into the building. She really needs a sense humor. The glass door swung shut behind him.
