Everything else belongs to somebody else and that's just the way it is. Thanks so much for reading, hope you'll review and tell me what you think! Always Call Me Turning his head at the sound of his name being called by a familiar voice Ren naturally hid his delight as he turned around to wait for her to catch up, watching her weave between the various show business people miling around the front lobby to get to him.
Shoving his hands into his pockets Ren absently wondered if perhaps she was having problems with a job or just wanted to chat for a moment or two. Thankfully he wasn't in any hurry, since he'd had a cancellation due to weather conditions. His next three hours were completely free and hers if need be. What can I help you with, Miss. Even if he hadn't been free, he'd have found some way to etch out some time for her, Ren thought ruefully. He was stupid in love with her that way.
Hello Kyoko, good bye work ethic. You can decline if you want though, I would perfectly understand. In fact, it's stupid, I shouldn't be bothering you with it, I should never have promised Taisho I'd ask you. Please forgive my impudence in asking you!
Grabbing her arm to keep her from running off Ren didn't want her to get away before she'd explained. Deliberately using the smile that seemed to unnerve her best, Ren hoped it would throw her enough off balance to have her spilling.
Her cheeks going pink it was obvious Kyoko didn't want to say, but knew better than to think she could get away with not spilling her guts to him, especially when he was aiming his evil Heavenly Smile at her, which made her naturally want to spill her guts just to get away from its brilliance.
There was no way in hell he was letting her walk home by herself, especially if there was even the slightest chance she might run into these men. Not that she was weak, but she was also remarkably unobservant sometimes, which tended to be her undoing in dangerous situations. Her face indecisive, Kyoko was reluctant to accept if it would remotely put him out. Mind frantically reviewing his work schedule Ren barely hid his wince from her.
He was working until at least ten thirty, and that was if everything went according to plan. Shoving a hand through his hair Ren tried to figure out how he was going to work this out.
Yoshiro pick you up from your last job and bring you to mine. I have to appear on a show that doesn't end until ten thirty. He was a professional actor after all, he knew how to manipulate someone better than a king's entire court. She didn't have to work until ten too, so it wasn't like she wouldn't be able to get enough sleep, though she was usually always in bed by ten thirty.
She knew he could just be pretending it wasn't a problem.Relationship Advice For Men
Yashiro should have arrived at the set to pick Kyoko up by now. Fifteen minutes to show time for him as well. Looking around Ren absently nodded to a colleague of his, one of the five men that were appearing on the show tonight. Apparently they'd taken a poll as to the top five men in the entertainment industry their viewers would like to see, and some moron had thought it would be a brilliant idea to put them all on at once.
Unfortunately, he hadn't been able to get out of it. Not that he had a problem with three of them, it was the forth that he wanted to personally push out a twenty story building window onto a bed of glass and nails. Never had he hated another human being more. He disliked the man even more than he did his former self, which was definitely saying something. The feeling was entirely mutual. Standing on the opposite side of the room Sho was also thinking just how happy he would be if Ren Tsuruga were to meet an unfortunate end, preferably one he himself had a hand in causing.
The slick, 'I'm So Cool' bastard. What Kyoko saw in him was completely beyond Sho's comprehension. Sharing a dark, message filled stare with the older man, it seemed that the room got colder from their animosity alone. She'd begged the president to step in and stop Sho from appearing with Ren Tsuruga, but all to no avail.
Apparently the president thought that an out and out brawl between the two would only boost Sho's record sales. Tsuruga would beat the crap out of Sho. Most people would probably assume that the pacifist Ren wouldn't stand a chance again Sho, but given how much she thought the older man cared for Kyoko, Shoko wasn't so sure Ren wasn't entirely capable of hauling out a can of whoop ass that would reduce her poor Sho to road kill.
That aside, Ren's face really was too beautiful to marr, she thought with female appreciation. She might be tempted to stop Sho, which would not end well for anyone. Sighing, Shoko could only hope the host knew what she was doing. When the show did get underway everything seemed to be going relatively smoothly.
The host sat in the middle, while two couches had been situated on either side of her, Sho on one side and Ren on the other.
The host payed equal attention to all their guests and did a good job of boosting all their egos without treading on anyone else's. They were asked the usual questions, about jobs they were working on, what they considered their greatest piece of work to date, who they admired in the industry and so on, and so forth.
The sparks didn't fly until twenty minutes into the questions, when the questions turned to their personal lives.

Each man was asked about the special someone in their life or lack there of. As was typical, the men answered casually, listing off some of the well known beauties they'd dated recently, each trying to make themselves seem to be the head Cassanova of the group. Than it was Ren's turn to be asked, and the host dropped her little bomb with ill disguised glee. The one who injured herself? They were from the same agency and he had seen the actress with Ren a time or two. He had been very impressed to see how she'd progressed as an actress since she'd challenged Ruriko, particularly her portrayal of Mio in Dark Moon.
Knowing exactly what a deer caught in headlights feels, Ren didn't know what to do but play dumb. I happened to hear you remind your manager to pick her up, and I distinctly heard him reassure you that nothing would happen to YOUR Kyoko chan and that he'd have her here in a jiffy.
Even as she denies being eliminated from the audition, one of the judges from the audition appears and reveals she has become a member of the 'Love-Me' section. Kyoko became overjoyed and quickly binds Moko with her 'demons', in order to prevent her from running away. Meanwhile, the President asks for Kyoko's help with his granddaughter Maria, as her latest prank caused injuries. Maria's actions seems to stem from a current play he's staging. She uses a similar dialogue as the script but in a malevolent emotion, and later switches lines with the other actress.
Maria recollected about her mother's death and how everyone tried to convince that it was not her fault. She had grown tired of hearing all of these, and started to distrust adults.
After witnessing Kyoko and the other actress' argument, Maria takes the latter's place and thus realizes that what the other adults said was true. In the end, Kyoko and Moko still have to pay the fees due to Maria interrupting halfway. Maria realizes that Kyoko's father and mother had left her. Kyoko is told by the president that she needs her mother's permission to debut.
Kyoko sits on the stairs mumbling to her blue corn stone that she is going to be okay. She then accidentally dropped the precious stone and quickly ran down to get it. The stone was picked up by Ren, who realized he knew Kyoko when he was young since he was the one who gave the stone to Kyoko when she was upset.
Getting to play Bo the chicken mascot at a new talk show, Kyoko gets a chance to exact some revenge when the guest is none other than Sho. Then, as Bo, she challenges Sho to a badminton match and almost reveals her identity to him. When she gets lost in the building, she meets up with Ren.
A series of whack-up moments between Ren and Bo uncover some of Ren's real personality and his true feelings towards Kyoko. As Ren goes back to memorize his script, Kyoko begins pondering if she would become friends with him. She sees Ren and remembers what she did at her previous meeting with him Kyoko gave him a bad gesture. She also recalls the side of Ren she experienced when dressed up as Bo, and blushes.
She doesn't notice Ren staring at her from far away, and when, unexpectedly, Ren gives her a very radiant gentlemanly smile, she tries to run. Because of Ren's long legs he catches up to her by just walking gracefully. Kyoko panics and heads for the girls' bathroom, which is the only place Ren won't find her, but arriving at the door she sees that Ren has caught up to her and asks why she didn't greet him.
Kyoko cries and apologises which makes Ren laugh, the manager sees it and is surprised. Later on, Ren gives Kyoko a ride back home and even gives her advice for the next day's audition for a commercial. At the audition, she runs into Moko. Moko is having problems. Her childhood nemesis Erika Koenji has shown up at the same audition.
Ever since Moko got the lead in a school play, Erika has been obsessed with crushing Moko's dream of becoming an actress. Moko, still running away from her, decides not to compete in the second round. Angry with Moko's lack of guts and faith in her own talent, Kyoko decides to slap some sense into her, and gets her to finally stand up to Erika. While they argue and work out their differences, a mysterious man listens nearby, and appears interested in their conversation. When Erika attempts to have her accociates by her way through the audition, the director makes the connection to the girl the two others were talking about and Erika, and refuses the bribery.
Unable to buy her way in, Erika insists Kyoko and Moko not to have any discussions about the audition being from the same company, they would have better rapport than others who just met when the director decided that the next stage, along with the actual commercial, will have two girls in it.
However, they manage to pass the first test with just one line within the second time frame and without any practice, unlike all other pairings, who had 20 minutes of preparation. In the second test, Kyoko's idea for the act is stolen by Erika who manage to pull it off first, as she overheard Kyoko deciding.
Kyoko stands horrified, wondering whether they would be able to pass the audition, while both Moko and the director realize that Erika stole Kyoko's idea, and they ponder separately what will happen.
Erika was so angry at Moko-san for beaten her twice, plotting to using violence so that she will get the part of Moko in the commercial. While Kyoko and Moko were strolling around town together, she found out that Moko didn't have any true friends before and told Moko-san that she will be Moko-san's first true friend. Kyoko accidentally confesses her feelings friendship towards Moko and is embarrassed pushing Moko away and interrupting Erika's plan to destroy Moko, Moko tells her that if she wants to be acknowledged as her rival, she should step out of her comfort zone and get her hands dirty.
Kyoko was so happy because it was the same things that Kyoko told her before. Due to the tensions between them, Ren is cold toward her and tells her she won't be able do much as his manager. The first day goes poorly for Kyoko, who can't seem to do anything right, and she feels useless because Ren has been picking up the slack every time she messes up. While driving with Ren that evening, thinking about how much he must hate her, Kyoko's stomach starts to growl.
Ren notices, so they stop at a cheap family restaurant to eat dinner. While there, some high-school girls spot Ren and loudly joke about Kyoko's work uniform, saying that a girl around her age should be in high school. Kyoko becomes angry because she dropped out of school. After dinner, as Ren drives Kyoko home, he asks her why she didn't go to high school. Kyoko explains everything to Ren including her plan to get revenge on Sho by surpassing him in show business.
Ren reveals that her motivation disgusts him, and Kyoko finally realizes that this is why Ren has been cold towards her. While trying to explain herself, Kyoko receives a phone call from the president of L.
He asks her if she would like to attend a local performance-arts oriented high school. Kyoko happily accepts and the president tells her she will have to pass an entrance exam. The next day, while Ren is shooting scenes, Kyoko notices him frequently coughing and clearing his throat. When Ren takes a break, Kyoko tells him she thinks he is coming down with a cold and that he should take medicine to help him.
Ren isn't convinced, saying he never catches a cold, and ignores her. By the following morning, Ren has developed a sore throat and a high fever.
Kyoko chides him for his stubbornness and Ren apologizes for being too proud. On set, Ren must do a scene in which he is drenched with rain. Kyoko, fearing it would worsen his fever, tells him not to shoot the scene until he recovers, but Ren says he will keep acting no matter how ill he may feel, only stopping if he passes out. Because his inexperienced co-star has trouble saying her lines, Ren is forced to shoot the rain scene multiple times.
Back in the dressing room, Ren passes out, awkwardly trapping Kyoko beneath him.
In this episode, his positive thoughts and reactions are shown as she takes care of him. When she is at his apartment nursing him through his fever, Ren thanks Kyoko in a 'kind' manner. Kyoko keeps thinking about Ren's thanking and is unable to focus on reviewing for the entrance exam. Later at the set, when Ren has difficulty memorizing his lines, Kyoko recites the lines of his partner to help him.
Ren realizes how far Kyoko has come in learning how to act. He compliments her progress and her response is that learning to act is fun. He questions her response, believing that she's studying acting to get revenge on Sho Fuwa. Kyoko corrects him, saying that she's doing it to discover a new Kyoko Mogami. That night she stays over at Ren's apartment again because he's not yet fully recovered.
When he discovers her slumped over her textbooks, fast asleep, he wakes her and urges her to use the guest bedroom.
She protests, saying she still has to review for the entrance exam. The next morning, when Ren and Kyoko are running late due to heavy traffic, she "borrows" a bike and says that she will take them on time. He admires her tenacity and thinks to himself that he will grant her full marks as his manager.
She's excited to be a "normal high school girl," but later finds out that her high school rather abnormal since she's in the entertainment class where the students are celebrities. On her way to her working place, Kyoko overhears two female passersby talking about the Kyurara commercial and saying that the "short-haired one" Kyoko was "average" and "not cut out to be a celebrity," which reminds Kyoko of Sho.
While upset about the passersby's comments, Kyoko receives a call from Ren, who is on the balcony above her.
Apparently, Ren especially came to thank Kyoko for being his substitute manager; he also comments that Kyoko looks good in her school uniform. Ren gives Kyoko a point stamp, but then deducts 10 points after Kyoko says she was only fulfilling her duties as a substitute manager.
Kyoko gets angry when the points are deducted, but Ren brushes it off by saying that he grabbed the wrong stamp and covers it up with his fake, gentlemanly smile, but she realizes he's lying. Initially, Kyoko angrily declines. After Moko-san told her that she used an actor as a stepping stone to boost her career, Kyoko decides to use this opportunity to use Sho as a "stepping stone" like he used her; she goes back to Sawara-san and accepts the job offer.
Yashiro is surprised when Ren says that Kyoko doesn't know he is going to be doing an out-of-Tokyo shoot. Yashiro thought that Ren and Kyoko had gotten closer since he noticed that Ren now looks at Kyoko more kindly; however, Ren said he didn't notice any difference. When Ren gets on the plane, he thinks to himself that he's relieved that Kyoko didn't study acting just to get revenge on Sho.

He also wishes that Kyoko wouldn't see Sho until she forgets about him. Meanwhile, Kyoko is at Queen Record waiting in a room. Thinking that it's Sho's fault that she's kept waiting, Kyoko gets up and starts heading towards the door to investigate.
The door opens and there stands Sho! To prevent Sho from finding out her true identity, Kyoko acts cute to lower his suspicions. The producer, Haruki Asami, meets up with them in the hallway and the three of them go to the correct waiting room where Mimori rushes over to Sho.
Asami introduces Mimori to Kyoko and starts explaining about the promo. Kyoko enthusiastically volunteers to be the angel who kills the devil Sho while Mimori is thrilled to be the other angel who falls in love with the devil.
After that, the four of them proceeds to lunch. Seeing the way Mimori behaves around Sho reminds Kyoko of her old self. Mimori personally made Sho a bento, but didn't know that Sho doesn't like sweet omelet.
Knowing so, to prevent Sho from throwing away the omelet in front of Mimori, Kyoko instinctively flicks a pack of salt over to Sho, which raises Sho's suspicions about Kyoko's true identity again. Sho begins to suspect 'Kyoko' is in fact the 'Kyoko Mogami' that he had known since childhood. He recalls an incident sometime ago involving Kyoko staring at a cosmetic item in a store that she liked and had given a name for. He uses this cosmetic that he has picked up and successfully reveals Kyoko's identity by luring her to recall the name that she had once given to this item a name that only the two of them know.
Having revealed her identity, Sho decides not to fire Kyoko from the filming because of his egotistic personality and his desire to see how far Kyoko can 'surprise him'. Kyoko replies that Sho will soon regret that he didn't fire her from the set. After her reappearance onto the set having put on her costumes and completed her make-up, Sho is shocked and speechless at the dramatic change in Kyoko's appearance.
Meanwhile, at a different location, Yashiro is still pondering on Ren's suspicious actions of subtracting 10 points from Kyoko's stamp album. Yashiro describes Ren as always keen and sharp-minded, which makes Ren's excuse that he 'accidentally' gave an incorrect stamp ironic.
Yashiro deduces that it was because Ren had felt jealous after he heard Kyoko's reason for her hard efforts as Ren's replacement manager, saying that it was to fulfill her responsibilities as a 'Love-Me' member, rather than wholeheartedly wanting the best for Ren. However, Ren denies this argument by saying that the deduction in points was only because he felt Kyoko did not fully understand her responsibilities as a 'Love-Me' member, which had nothing to do with his personal feelings towards Kyoko.
Back at the studio as the filming begins, Sho observes Kyoko's personality and acting skills, and thinks to himself that she is no longer the 'Kyoko Mogami' that he once knew, but has now regarded her as a rival or even a potential threat to his career. Meanwhile, Mimori is jealous of Kyoko's previous relationship with Sho and is making her work with Kyoko difficult because of her hatred.
But her feelings towards Kyoko soon disappear after the filming started, because of Kyoko's captivating acting skills that draws others into the situation and make them respond appropriately. Asami notices Sho's staring at Kyoko and warns him not to become captivated by Kyoko's acting skills just as Mimori has become, and Sho thinks to himself that Kyoko intends to 'eat him alive' with her skills. When it was finally time for Kyoko to begin shooting her scenes with Sho angel killing the devil sceneKyoko finds it hard to restrain her anger and desires to kill Sho for real, that she overdoes her part and retakes a few times.
This leads to the progression of the filming being slowed down and while being given a break to recollect herself, Sho mocks Kyoko's 'incompetent' acting skills and her inability to 'surprise' him further other than her change in appearance. She then calls Moko and gets an idea on how to act properly.
She imagines that she will be killing Moko's lover for hurting her. Kyoko calls Ren afterwards and he isn't there so she leaves a voice message but realizes she doesn't want him to know she's acting in Sho's PV, so fails to mention her problem. Meanwhile, Mimori is busy rewatching a part of the promo where Sho kisses her hair. Sho sees Kyoko walking towards him and looks at her. Kyoko's face looks deep in frustration and anger and Sho reaches out to her but Kyoko walks away.
They start to shoot the killing scene again and Kyoko acts with angelic grace, and cries leaving Sho shocked and forgetting to do his part, since he never knew what to do when Kyoko cried. They film again and one of the workers state that Kyoko and Sho look like a couple this way.
Kyoko teases Sho because of his mistake but even after quarreling, they acted perfectly. After all that, Mimori knocks on Sho's door and comes in.
Sho says in a sloppy tone, and Mimori starts crying because she thinks that Sho keeps thinking about Kyoko. Sho hugs her and she's in a hot gaze so her manager carries her away.
