Truly! He is become more and more manly than the cute dorkable teen that he was back then and ane can sure is showing it!
Sho-chan and Jun-kun's closeness is the new talk of the town! Yes! Talk of the town! For they have never publicly shown just how close they are! (Especially with the ocassional name calling and touchy gestures of theirs) but this?! Omg! This is just one of the things where fans can go kya! Kya! Over!
Just look at them! Two handsome men in one page is already drool worthy! They just suit one another to be lifetime brothers!
I do hope that a lot of Ohno Satoshi wifey is looking forward to it and also the people who was captivated by this Love Comedy drama of his. It is truly such a cute thing to find a stubborn yet cute sachou!

If it weren't for theses unique guys, i wouldn't have entered the fandom world of Arashi. And without them, i wouldn't have strive my hardest because they're my inspiration to be able to reach my goals.
Truly i can't ask for more but for them to still continue to inspire us with their never ending works.

Aiba Masaki watch Erica from the sidelines as she prepared the photo set that she’ll be using. He arrived earlier than the set time. The part for his TV shooting finished early which is why he decided to straightly went to the studio.
When he arrived, everyone greeted him except for Erica who only took a glance at him before continuing her preparation. It was kind of refreshing for a girl to act like that, maybe it’s due to the fact that he had been surrounded by a lot of fans or maybe it’s because of how he had meet her.
Thinking back to how they met, Aiba can’t help but grin. She was kind of stubborn but she has a funny side that she rarely shows.
Wanting to get to know her, Aiba slowly moved closer to her, still silently watching her. When he was near enough, Aiba called her name and when Erica’s head turn to Aiba’s direction, his finger poked her cheeks.
“Caught you” Aiba grinned while Erica raised an eyebrow, attention completely on him. “Miyagawa-sensei is calling you” Erica pointed out to Aiba but when Aiba turned his attention towards the back, he saw MIyagawa talking to one of the staffs. “He’s no---“Aiba was caught off guard by the same thing he did with Erica.
“Caught you~” Erica cheerfully said. The two of them stare at one another for a second before bursting into a fit of laughter.
“You’re such a kid” Erica commented “So are you” Aiba replied. And once again, they burst into laughter.
After a minute or so, they stop laughing but the smile on their face was still evident. “Anyway, since you’re too early, why didn’t you just sit still like the people who’ll have their picture taken?” Erica walk towards Miyawa’s photography stuff to put down the camera she was holding.
“Demo~, it’s more fun not to and talking to the stuff is more fun” AIba answered, his hands on his packet. “Hai, Hai!” Erica wave her hand as a sign of telling him to do what he wants.
“Ne~ Erica-chan” Aiba walk in front of Erica’s view as she tries a new lens for the camera “Hmm?” Erica took a picture of Aiba-chan as a trial photo which Aiba didn’t mind and smiled in front of her “Are you free later?” Erica put the camera down, giggling, before playfully saying “We’ve just talk for a few minutes and you’re already asking me out?”
“Eh? No, No, that’s not what I meant” Aiba was flustered after he realized what he just said, seeing him like that, Erica didn’t want the chance to slip by and took a picture of it. “Hey! That was embarrassing” Aiba complained when he saw Erica taking a picture.
Erica laughed at him before checking what her earlier shot, Aiba had an embarrassed smile and was about to cover it up when she took it. His suit doesn’t even give off the aura that his intimidating in the slightest.
“How is it?” Aiba was curious but he didn’t want to make her hate him, seeing as it was her policy to be the first one to see her shots. “It’s not worth it” Erica answered and deleted the picture “eh~?” was Aiba’s reaction.
“Anyways, are you going wear that for the photo shoot?” For the first time since they’ve started interacting did Erica observed Aiba from head to toe “Yup, this is what they’ve given me” Was Aiba’s answer, a broad smile plastered in his face.
Erica wasn’t impressed at all if she was the photographer, she would want for Aiba to be himself and show off that bright smile of his and his other personality in a homey feel. But she can’t decide that for herself since she’s only assisting Miyagawa-sensei.
And as if reading her mind, Miyagawa called her attention. She excused herself from Aiba which he nodded in acknowledgement. When Erica closed the distance from teacher, Miyagawa said “You’ll be in charge of the three people today while I’ll do the other two and the group shot”
“Ok~” was Erica’s nonchalant reply, thinking that it was another workload. Only to realize to late what Miyagawa-sensei truly said. “Chotto matte! You’re kidding right?” She asked him for confirmation, hoping that what she just heard was wrong but the look in Miyagawa’s eyes wasn’t.
She knew that she cannot refuse what her sensei assigned to her but she can’t help but hate it. She never liked taking photos of people. For her those pictures in magazines are mostly fake. She doesn’t want to capture images that are done only for work. What Erica wanted are genuine emotions that’s why capturing architectural places are more precious for it shows just how much people tried their hardest to be able to gain create those wonderful structures.
“Get your stuff ready and pick the one’s you like among the members of Arashi” Miyagawa turned his back to a pouting Erica when he took a few steps he realized something and look back for a bit, Erica was already covering a part of her face with her right hand “Seeing as you’re getting along with Masaki, then you can pick two more”
Hearing that, Erica frustratingly comb her hair with her right hand. “I’m totally being played at” was Erica’s thought. Knowing that she can’t do anything more, she walked back to the stuff she prepared earlier.
And just like when she left Aiba there, she still found him on the same spot although he’s checking up the camera that she was adjusting earlier. When she got close, Aiba smiled towards her and said “Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu Erica-chan”
And Erica fully knew that it was a photo shoot that she’ll have to enjoy or else it would leave a bad record for her.

Erica can’t help but still wonder as to what, why and how did things ended the way they are. She is currently preparing Miyagawa-sensei's stuff for the upcoming photoshoot with the members of Arashi.
“Stop looking at my stuff as if they’ll give out answers to your questions” MIyagawa told Erica from behind her.
Erica turned to face her sensei and said “And how exactly did you know that” and as if mocking him, Erica crossed her arms in front of her.
Miyagawa smiled at her and pointed to her right where a large mirror was slightly adjusted to barely see Miyagawa’s stuff.
And with that Erica’s question were answered. “Now, if you could just stop sulking and just be your natural self then it would be wonderful”
With a sigh and a simple “How in the world did my trip turn out to be like this?” Erica grab one of his sensei’s professional camera for adjustment.
“Hajimemashite Arashi-san” Erica greeted with a respectful bow.
“Hajimemashite Erica-chan, Aiba Masaki desu~” Aiba-chan cheerfully greeted back as he walked towards Erica to shake her hands. Erica was dumbfounded by his gesture but instead of pulling away, she smiled sweetly and greeted back.
“Hajimemashite, Matsumoto Jun desu” Jun greeted after Aiba-chan returned to Sho’s side, Erica unconsciously took a step back which didn’t went unnoticed to Jun “Gomen, I didn’t mean to scare you earlier” with his sincere apology, Erica smile nodding that she understood”
“Ninomiya Kazunari, Yoroshiku” With a boyish grin, wink and informal salute, Nino greeted back. Erica giggled at the guy’s childishness
“Hajimemashite, Boku wa Sakurai Sho desu, yoroshiku onegaishimasu” Sho formally greeted back with a wide smile and a slight nod of his head. Erica bowed her head slightly as a sign of acknowledgement with a smile on her face.
“Ohno Satoshi desu~, yoroshiku ne~” Ohno playfully said, earning a light slap from Nino. When Ohno look at him for answers, “Don’t sound as if you’re on air” was Nino’s explanation. Earning a giggle from Erica.
“Erica-san, you said that you caught a picture of them earlier correct?” Ando Ryo asked Erica once the exchange of greetings were done.
“Hai” Erica shyly answered, tightly holding the camera on her hand. “Can we see it?” Ando continued.
Erica was quite troubled and seeing this Miyagawa intervene. “Ando, it’s in Erica’s policy to see what she has taken first before anyone else which is why I’m afraid that you can’t” Hearing this, Erica sighed in relief “Although, she can developed it on the studio right now for you everyone to see”
“Eh?!” Erica reacted while the two older men nodded and Arashi smiled in satisfaction. “That would be a good idea” Omora Ken agreed.
“Then it’s decided” Miyagawa clapped his hand “No!” Erica protested “Not for a second time sensei” She continued as she walk away from her sensei.
“Second time?” Miyagawa seemed confuse at first but gradually he understood “It was for your project in NPI and besides, we can’t have you preventing us from seeing your work especially when your model is Okada Junichi of V6”
With Miyagawa’s explanation everyone looked at Erica with shocked. “Is that true” “Honto?” “Majide?” was thrown at her.
“What? It was only for our schools photoshoot and I didn’t want a person to model for me mind you” Erica defended. Upon hearing that Arashi burst in laughter while Ando and Omora questioned Miyagawa.
“Are you serious?” Jun asked in between laughter.
“She’s talking as if she doesn’t want anything to have to do with Okada-senpai” Sho added
“I’m so going to say this to Okada-senpai” Nino burst in laughter by just remembering what Erica said.
“Oh God! That has to hurt” Ohno said to Nino
“Ah! I so want to know what happened” Aiba exclaimed after he calmed down.
“What?” Erica asked in confusion.
And is if asking her question, Ando explained “Okada Junichi is Arashi’s senpai and a close friend of theirs”
Erica’s attention turned towards the three older men, who happens be looking at Miyagawa’s Ipad, and to be more precise her photo assignment of Okada Junichi back then.
The photo assignment that Erica was assigned to was to take Okada Junichi’s unexpected side that the world doesn’t usually see. But here’s the catch, Erica doesn’t know anything about him which is why she randomly took the picture that she thought was good enough.
And for her to do that, she asked Miyagawa if she can take Okada-kun outside for a photoshoot. At first, Miyagawa declined it since it was dangerous to do so being as Okada is a member V6, a famous group of Johnny’s and Associates but when Erica had told him that she’ll be willing to take the photoshoot somewhere private as long as it’s in a house.
And so the photoshoot was held at Miyagawa’s private home in Tokyo. Okada-san arrived at the place an hour earlier than the expected time but Erica didn’t mind and still loitered around to house to inspect instead of starting the shoot.
When Erica decided where the shoot shall take place, she still didn’t inform Okada-san and just casually converse with him. Erica wanted him to fully relax, for him to forget that it was a photoshoot and just open up to her. Okada didn’t mind at all and conversed with her.
They were already at the garden and yet they still didn’t even for once took a picture at all. Miyagawa was watching them and yet he can’t exactly read what was Erica thinking but when he saw Okada leaning at the fence, his right hand is being leaned by his head.
At that moment, Miyagawa caught a glimpse of Erica readying her camera. They talk for a bit more and when Okada was about to fully smile, the snap of the camera captured the image that she wanted.
And with that, Erica told Okada that she was already done with a smile, Okada was surprised at first but it turned to amusement. They bid farewell and Erica gave the photo to Miyagawa and pack her stuff then left the house.
And that very picture is being shown to the two older men. “Woah! Is that the picture? I want to see” Aiba excitedly said. The other’s followed suit and grabbed the Ipad of Miyagawa as they check the picture.
“You got talent” Omora complimented her. Although the compliment didn’t made Erica happy at all. “Why don’t you let her help you Miyagawa-san?” He suggested.
“With this, we can continue the photoshoot without any problem” Ando added. Miyagawa smiled at the idea and agreed and when Erica was about to protest, Arashi cut her off and said “We look forward to working with you” in perfect sync.
~End of Flashback~
And that’s the reason why she landed to where she is right now. Erica took a few snap of the camera to check the light’s effect.
“At least, you’re policy wasn’t broken. Besides on the next term you’ll be working like this” Miyagawa told her.
“Why can’t you understand that I hate taking people’s picture?” Erica questioned, still adjusting the camera.
“It’s because you have the talent for it and I’m sure you’ll be able to like it soon enough” was his answer but he knew that Erica, unconsciously love taking people’s photo, which is why he want’s her to accept that side of her.
Erica check the time on her watch, to find that that it was already 5:30 in the afternoon. 30 minutes left before Arashi arrives and an hour or so before she could live the place.
But unbeknown to her, it was her first project as a professional photographer and Miyagawa is keeping it a secret from her.
This is the said picture of Okada Junichi in the story (P.S. I don't own any pictures and everything that is written in my fiction are not based on any true story)

Erica’s stop laughing when she realized that she’s the only one who’s doing so, talk about awkward. She cleared her throat and in a small voice said “Sorry”.
Jun watched her fiddle her fingers shyly before asking the same question that he had asked earlier “Where were you going?” Erica look at Jun as he continued what he’s saying “Especially with our picture you’ve just taken”
Erica took a step back, looking back and forth towards Jun and the others. She was aware that what she did was wrong but it was her policy to never delete nor let someone see her photos before she did.
“I’ll ask you again” Jun step forward near her “Where are---” Jun’s question was interrupted by someone’s, or rather a group of people talking near them.
At first, it was faint until it gradually grew closer to them making their conversation more audible. “Why of all time does she need to be gone today?” Someone said in frustration “ We’re very so--” someone was about to apologize when he was cut off by the other person “Sorry, will not help if we can’t find a replacement today”
“It's bad enough to have one less photographer but it's worse to let Arashi keep waiting just because of our mistake” another person joined in on the conversation.
The word ‘Arashi’ made the 5 guys, in the room with Erica, more attentive. “I wonder what happened” Ohno whispered and as a reply Nino smack him at the back before saying “that’s why we’re eavesdropping, you idiot”
“Those five has their own respective schedules and to bring those five together are already hard enough and now, things are a mess” The one who said the name ‘Arashi’ continued.
In the back of Erica’s mind, she was curious as to who were they referring to since she wasn’t really familiar about the celebrity world in Japan. She was really intrigue.
“Can’t help it, we need to talk to them about today’s photography before they start shooting for the TV special” And with that said, the door suddenly open, revealing 3 older men.
The three men was taken aback to see Arashi downstairs when they very well knew that they’re supposed to be upstairs.
The two guys was supposed to ask Arashi the question why they were there when one of them spoke first, and surprisingly it was towards Erica.
“What are you doing here, Erica?” The older man who has a camera on his hand. If the two older guys and Arashi was surprised, Erica was more than surprise to see her sensei before the official start of their classes.
“Konichiwa Miyagawa-sensei” Erica bowed her head in respect, like a proper lady before answering her teacher’s question “Since I was on vacation, I decided to take the trip to come here”
And as a sign of her real intention, Erica showed her sensei her camera.
Miyagawa nodded in understanding but his real question was still left unanswered “And?” The guys listened intently, curious to see one of the kindest photography that they knew being all serious on a girl, a student of his for that matter.
“And when I arrived here in Matsumoto castle, I kind of stumbled to find the 5 guys upstairs” And with an apologetic bow towards Arashi, she continued “I was mesmerized by how they got along that I ,unintentionally, caught a picture of them”
Miyagawa turned his attention towards Arashi for confirmation which the five nodded in confirmation. With that, Miyagawa took a step towards Erica and as if she already knew what it was, both of them bowed in apology towards Arashi.
“We’re deeply sorry for causing you trouble” Miyagawa apologize, overwhelming the the party
“Eh?!” Arashi shouted in surprise “Please don’t lift your heads up” Sho immediately told them.
“We’re totally fine with it, ne?” Aiba stated while looking back and forth towards the guys.
“And earlier we were chasing here because of it” Nino stated in a bratty tone, earning him a glare from the others “but yea, it’s fine” He added.
With that Ohno added “Please raise your head”
Miyagawa and Erica raised their head after apologizing again. “This is the first time I saw Miyagawa-san apologized for someone” Stated by one of the older guys.
“It was really quite unexpected” the other guy agreed
“Hajimemashite, Ando-san, Omora-san” Erica greeted and when she was about to greet the 5 guys,they were looking at her, intently “Hajimemashite Arashi-san”
Maybe, it was a sign from someone above, telling her that her troubled time shall start on that day. Because if only Erica was aware of it then surely she shouldn’t have press the button on her camera.

Previous Chapter: Chapter I
The Matsumoto castle has been the place where the popular boy group, Arashi was going to film as of today and when they arrived at the site. A lot of people were already there for sightseeing while the others seems to have known that they’ll be filming on that specific time and day.
Some of the people are even holding baby uchiwas with their faces on it, making it obvious that they’re fans. Seeing this situation, the staff and crew decided to let the members of Arashi to take refuge inside the castle as they wait for them to set up.
The 5 members of Arashi obeyed and sneak in inside the castle since some of the guides were informed beforehand to be able to avoid causing a commotion.
Each member was already dressed in their respective colored haori. Blue for Ohno Satoshi, Red for Sakurai Sho, Green for Aiba Masaki, Yellow for Ninomiya Kazunari and Purple for Matsumoto Jun.
The 5 of them we’re lazing around at first but since they haven’t really seen one another with their busy schedule, they immediately converse with another, although Nino is still playing with his DS.
Their conversion turned to teasing especially when Aiba kind of made a mistake with what Jun and Sho were talking when he kind of shouted his reaction, earning him a smack in the head from the members ending with all of them laughing.
And in that instant, a snap of light and a camera’s shutter caught their attention. For a split second no one reacted as they observe those clear brown eyes of the girl who just took their picture.
“What do you think you're doing?” Was Nino’s break of the ice comment. And as if realizing her mistake, Erica hurriedly went down the stairs.
As the boys look at one another and slyly grin at one another, as if communicating something. And with a signal of “GET HER!!” from Aiba did they started the chase.
“Oh! God! What have I done?” was Erica’s thought as she tried her very best to outrun them but since it’s a castle, you can expect that it was futile after all, the stairs are the hardest part to avoid.
“Chotto Matte!” Sho shouted but Erica didn’t stop neither did she slow down. The exit of the castle was already within reach when someone grab her hand and twirled her to face the person.
“And where are you going?” Jun ask Erica nonchalantly.
Erica was about to speak when a large bang near the stairs was heard. Both Jun and Erica turns their attention to what just happened only to see the 4 guys all bundled up, as if they fell from the stairs.
Aiba was under Sho and then Ohno while Nino was still at the middle of the stairs watching the three idiots who tripped themselves.
“Just what are you doing?” Nino complained to the three as he slowly descends the stairs.
“Gomen! I kind of slipped” Ohno apologized as he gets up from their position as the other two groaned in response.
With the sight in front of her, Erica can’t contain her laughter and burst out laughing. And once again, the boys’ attention was on her for the second time.

Pairing: None (I'll be using a third party for the story)
Photography has always been a passion of Erica. She attended Nippon Photography Institute (NPI) in Tokyo, Japan in order to pursue her passion. And the moment she stepped into the country she fell in love with it. The picturesque place was worth a shot from her camera.
She never once thought of wanting to go back to her homeland instead, she willingly stayed in the country. Her years of stay in the country grew as she discovered new places to explore and in every place she went, she’ll have tons of pictures to developed to bring back at her house.
Her classmates even made fun of her at times, saying that she’s a photo freak and such but she didn’t mind after all, her friends are only teasing her. She and her friends are all attending the same institute and also pursuing the same passion. Although they are not the top of the class, still they have their own specialties. And Erica's forte as still images but her professor wants her to try photographing people. A suggestion she refused to do. Until that moment in Nagano prefecture.
It was the last day of her vacation in the Nagano Prefecture before going back to Tokyo for another term in the institute. She decided to take the chance the Matsumoto Castle.
Erica was so amazed by its architectural frame when she saw it while walking around the place. She readied her camera to take a few couple of shots before she tries to find the direction to where it actually is.
Once she found the perfect angle, she smiled happily and continued on her journey to get closer to the castle. While walking, Erica notice some girls giggling and squealing in delight as they ran towards the direction of the castle. She was curious and at the same time she didn’t want to pry.
Which is why when she saw a crew of cameramen, she automatically knew that there’s going to be a shoot for a certain TV show and her curiosity from before about the girls are now resolved.
Erica didn’t pay no mind to what was about to happen and went on her way to enter the castle. She was in awe. If the outside structure was already amazing, what more for the inside to be. It was purely amazing. She explored the castle as one of the guides accompany her, informing erica of the history of the castle.
On one of the floors of the castle, Erica can hear 5 guys talking and laughing at something. And unlike earlier when she ignored her curiosity, this time there was something in the back of her mind that made her decide to check it out.
Erica told the guide that she can explore on her own and left. When she was so sure that the guide was gone, she slowly walk up the stairs, heart pounding with nervousness.
When she can finally took a peek, she was debating as to whether seize the chance or just walk back and let them be. And the urge to find out seems to have one.
She took a peek and saw 5 guys wearing a haori with different colors. The blue one was sitting, indian style next to the green one and they seem to be laughing about something. The yellow one was seating a bit further from the two playing with his DS seriously. While the other the the red and purple one was standing near each other discussing about something.
The more she observes them, the more her curiosity grows. And when she thought she was caught when the green one suddenly shouted an “Oh!” the other guys smack him in the head and laugh.
At that moment, my hands found its way to the camera and with a snap of the light, they’re attention was on me.
