Chapter 6: Reunion - Part 1

Super-powered Maids Showed Up Out of Nowhere, and Now I Have to Change My Otaku Lifestyle

After having to deal with the BunBun situation. Akira, Lysia, and BunBun returned home. They were all tired from being stressed out over the whole thing, but Akira still had to pack for his trip back home.

“Welcome back Master.” greeted Willow.

“Hey.” he responded tiredly.

Lysia carried BunBun to the couch and curled into a ball holding him closely before falling asleep.

Amari was watching some magical girl anime on the TV, while Rose and Yuri were playing a game of chess in the dining room.

“Welcome back.” Sakura says as she enthusiastically slides next to Akira, “Are you going to go pack for tomorrow?”

“Yeah, guess I don’t have much of a choice. Do you mind helping me?”

“Of course not. Helping you is my job after all.” She joyfully replies.

Sakura then begins to help Akira pack his suitcase.

A few tee shirts, a wrinkled white dress shirt and a black suit jacket, a pair of black jeans, and of course, plenty of sweatpants.

“Is this really all you’ll need?” asked Sakura, raising an eyebrow in concern.

“Yeah, pretty much. Wanna pack some of my clothes as spares so you aren’t wearing that outfit to sleep?”

“Nah, I think I’ll just sleep naked.” Sakura giggled.

Akira’s face started to heat up and turn red.

“I mean, if that’s what you want I won’t stop you, but you might get cold or something.” Akira said embarrassed.

“I’m just teasing you. Of course I’m gonna wear clothes to bed. Maybe.” she said, winking to her Master.

Later that day, Akira grabbed his stuff and was ready to head out the door.

“Where are you going Master?” asked Amari.

“It’s a secret. I’ll tell you girls later.”

“What kind of secrets do you have? You don’t have a life.” snarked Rose.

“Yeah, no life!” cheered Yuri.

“Hey, don’t let her influence you!” Akira shouted. “Anyway, I’m gonna head out now. Don’t destroy the place while I’m gone.”

“Oh please, have we ever destroyed anything?” Rose asked.

“Need I remind you of the tree incident? There’s still a big hole out here from it if you don’t remember.” Willow chimed in.

“Exactly, see? Someone remembers.” Akira responded.

“W-whatever! It’s not like it was on purpose or anything! I can’t control where my sparks go.”

“You can if you don’t use your power. Anyway, I’m going now.”

Akira walked out the door and Yuri turned to look at Rose.

“It was kinda your fault.” Yuri said.

“S-shut up, idiot!”

Later that evening, Rose was preparing to serve dinner to everyone when Akira returned with a plastic bag in his hand.

“What’s in the bag, what’s in the bag?!” asked Lysia cheerfully.

“I’m also curious as to what’s in the bag.” stated Amari.

“Ooo, I’m quite curious as to what’s in the bag too!” announced Willow.

“Just tell us what’s in the bag already!” shouted Rose.

“Alright, alright. Calm down.” Akira said as he set the bag on the dining room table and opened it. He held a small box and opened it.

“What’s in the box? What’s in the box?!” shouted Lysia in anticipation.

“It’s a smartphone. Sakura has seen it before, and I believe Amari has used it to look up some things a few times, but for the rest of you, you’ve never touched one before, right?”

“Nope!” Lysia announced.

“This is… a smartphone?” Willow questioned in confusion.

“What’s so smart about it? It can’t be THAT smart if you have one.” Rose snarked.

“Does that mean there are also dumb phones too?” asked Yuri.

“Jeez, let him explain it to you guys. Why’d you buy a second phone anyway?” Sakura asked, slightly confused.

“Well, since we’re leaving for my trip tomorrow, I thought it’d be a good idea to have some way for the rest of the girls to contact us. That way if anything goes wrong, or even if they just want to talk to us, they can get ahold of us. Well, more specifically me I guess.”

“Alright, I’ll make sure to look after it, since I know the most about phones from the Internet and manga.” Amari said confidently.

“Great, let me just put my number in so you can call me easily.”

Akira took out his phone and swiped over to his contacts. He clicked on himself and typed the number into the new phone.

“Don’t you know your own number?” Sakura asked.

“Well, no. I’ve never really needed to give it out to anybody, so I never bothered to memorize it.”

“Loser.” Rose muttered under her breath.

“Alright, Amari, teach the girls how to use the phone properly after dinner, ok?”

“Sure thing Master!”

Everyone ate dinner together as usual. Afterward, Akira and Sakura went back to his room.

“Are you really sure about this?” Sakura said nervously.

“Of course I’m sure. Come on, it’ll be super quick. Just in and out like that.”

“What if the other girls find out about it though?”

“They won’t, but if they do, they’ll understand.”

“W-we’re really going to do this?”

“Yeah, just trust me. You’ll enjoy yourself I’m sure.”

“Ok, I trust you. Let’s go.”

Akira and Sakura head to the 709 Building to look at dresses.

“What do you think of this one?” Sakura asked, holding up a white dress.

“Nah, I think black would suit you better. Besides, if you spill your drink, it’ll be less noticeable.”

“Ok, now to figure out what style of dress to get.”

“You’ll need some shoes too. Don’t wanna show up in a dress and sneakers.”

After shopping, the two head back home for an early dinner.

“Are you really leaving tomorrow?” asked Lysia sadly.

“Yes, we are. Don’t worry, you have BunBun to keep you company, and Willow will watch after you.” Sakura responded.

“Make sure he doesn’t try to do anything to you while you’re alone.” scolded Rose.

“Hey, what’s your problem? You really think I’d do something like that?” shouted Akira.

“Well you ARE a loser otaku after all. Who knows what you disgusting anime fans would do alone with a beautiful girl.”

“H-hey, I like anime too.” interjected Amari.

“This isn’t about you. This is about that creep trying to take advantage of a cute girl.”

“Rose, stop. Don’t worry about me, I trust him with my life. If he wanted to do something, he would have done it already. Besides, he was kind enough to let us live with him here when he could have just as easily kicked us out onto the streets to fend for ourselves. Would you rather be out there cold and homeless, thrown out like last week's garbage?”

Rose looked defeated.

“Alright, fine. You have a point… I can’t believe I’m about to say this… I’m sorry M… Master. I overstepped and said some things I shouldn’t have. Excuse my rudeness, but could you please take care of Sakura?”

“Of course. Apology accepted Rose. You’re really growing up, you know?”

“Shut up, idiot! I’m already an adult you know. Can’t really grow up much more without becoming an old hag.”

The group enjoyed their final meal together for the next few days. Akira and Sakura went to sleep early so they could catch their flight the next morning.

The next day, Akira and Sakura walked through the sterile white airport on their way to their terminal. After waiting for what felt like forever, they finally got on the plane and waited for take off. Luckily for them, they were seated right next to each other.

“Man, this is gonna be a long flight. It’s probably a good idea to get some rest while we’re flying.” Akira said.

“Alright, but I forgot to bring a pillow. I hope I don’t cramp my neck.” Sakura said.

“Yeah, that would suck.” Akira let out a long yawn. “Man, I didn’t get much sleep last night. I feel like I could pass… out… any…”

Akira fell asleep, resting his head on Sakura’s right shoulder.

Sakura decided to rest too, so she laid her head on top of his and the two slept for the entire plane flight.

After landing and heading to their hotel, the two realized what a difference time zones makes.

“Wait, it’s 1:00 am?! What happened to the rest of the day?” Sakura asked in panic.

“Time zone change. You probably aren’t tired from sleeping on the plane, but we should still get some sleep. The reunion is tonight, so we should make sure we’re well rested before then. Make sure you shower too.” Akira responded.

“Here’s your room key sir. Have a nice stay!” said the hotel worker.

“Thanks. Let’s get on the elevator.” Akira said.

“Um, actually, it would be faster to take the stairs. Our elevator is running very slowly. Getting to the third floor would take about a minute. Sorry for the inconvenience.” interjected the worker.

“I’m too tired to climb. I’ll just take the elevator.”

“How are you tired? Didn’t you sleep on the plane?” Sakura asked.

“Yeah, but I just woke up not that long ago. Come one, elevator time.”

The two stepped into the elevator and it slowly made its way up.

Akira stood in the back corner, leaning against the wall. Sakura stood near the door waiting for it to open.

There was no music, just the sound of the elevator clicking as it crawled its way towards the third floor.

Click. Click. Click.

Akira sniffled.

Click. Click.

The elevator stopped clicking for a moment. The only sound left was the humming of the lights overhead.

Click. Ding.

The door opened and the two walked into the third floor hallway. They headed towards their room and Akira fumbled with the key card. Eventually they made their way into the room and set their luggage down.

“Great, only one bed. Guess I’ll sleep on the couch. I’ll set my alarm so we don’t oversleep.” Akira said drowsily.

“No, I think you should take the bed Master. Please, I insist.”

“If I made a cute girl sleep on the couch, or worse, the floor, I’d feel terrible.”

“Isn’t that how we sleep back home though?”

“You have something to sleep on between you and the floor don’t you? Plus I have a folding couch, so more people can sleep there. Let’s just play rock-paper-scissors for the bed then.”

“What happens if we draw?”

“I guess we both sleep on the bed then.” Akira said sarcastically.

The two readied a fist.

Rock. Paper. Scissors.


“I was kidding. I’m sleeping on the couch.”

Sakura grabbed his shoulder and stopped him.

“Nope, a deal is a deal. We share the bed.”

“Fine, I don’t care anymore. I just wanna sleep.”

Akira flopped limply onto the bed and crawled under the covers.

Sakura slid into the bed from the other side and laid down.

“Don’t bother me until I wake up please.” Akira said, already half asleep.

“Ok. Goodnight Master.”


The two fell asleep and weren’t woken up until Akira’s phone alarm went off later that afternoon. He woke up to the sound of his favorite anime intro, as he usually did.

“Shut up! I hear you.” he grumbled.

He reached for his phone to stop the alarm before realizing he was being held back by something. Sakura had wrapped herself around him while they were sleeping.

“Hey, wake up. I wanna turn off this stupid alarm.”

Sakura woke up and yawned.

“Oh. Good morning Master.” she realized what she was doing and jolted back in embarrassment. “S-sorry! I didn’t notice what I was doing!”

“It’s fine, don’t worry about it.” he said tiredly while turning off the alarm.

“What time is it?” Sakura asked, trying to change the subject.

“One in the afternoon. We slept for twelve hours.”

“What time is the reunion tonight?”

“Let me check the invitation.” Akira pulled a wrinkled piece of paper from his pocket and read it. “It starts at five. Ah crap! I forgot to text Mei to tell her I was gonna be there. I’ll do that right now.”

A sharp pain jolted through Sakura’s head.

“Mei…” she muttered under her breath.

“Alright, so we have a few hours to just do whatever. There really isn’t much to do around here though. What do you think we should do?”

Sakura snapped out of her thoughts.

“Oh, well, I don’t exactly know what there would be to do other than sit around for a few hours. Wait, don’t your parents live here somewhere?”

“Well, yeah, but I never told them I’d be in town. They might not even be home for all I know.”

“Well, it can't hurt to check. Let’s go see them!” Sakura said, pulling him towards the door.

“I don’t really wanna-”

“Please?” she asked, pouting.

“Fine. It’s not like we have anything else to do.”

“Hey, how are we gonna get there anyway? We don’t have a car and there aren’t any trains here either are there?”

“Nope. Guess we’ll have to walk.”

“Walk? How long is that gonna take?”

“Probably about twenty minutes. It’s hot outside, so we should go as soon as possible.”

The two left the hotel, choosing to go with the stairs this time. They walked down a fairly straightforward road towards Akira’s parents house.

“Hey, Sakura. Look at that building. That’s my old highschool cafeteria. We’ll be back here later.”

Sakura looked at the large beige building with spanish tiled roofing. She’d never seen anything like it before.

“Wow, it’s so big!”

Akira chuckled to himself.


“Nothing. I don’t really miss this place, but I do wish I could hang out with my friends again.”

“Won’t you be with them tonight?”

Akira thought for a second.

“Well, not really. Most of those people were never my friends anyway, and the ones who were either drifted away from me or did something to make me cut them off.”

“Oh. Well, we don’t have to worry about that. Even if you don’t have them anymore, you have me and the other girls now. Come on, let’s keep going.”

Akira smiled at her and they continued towards their destination.
