[Nogizaka46 Fanfic] Reika’s Pursuit

You sat there among the audiences, getting all the cooperation to hide your presence. Yet Sakurai Reika knew by heart that you will be there, somewhere in the crowd, listening and watching very closely to her final performance as a member of Nogizaka46. The stage where both shared endless talks and struggles, amidst joyous moments and memories, shall be drawn to a close for another start.

Wakatsuki Yumi had a big bouquet of flowers prepared. Remembering her last message to Reika, wishing her a smooth live concert a few minutes before it starts, the phone buzzed with reminder from the staff members. She was nervous and happy for her.

Never in her dream that she would get an invitation to take part in Reika’s graduation concert, especially when she had graduated before her. It took more courage to let go than to hold on.

Waiting for Reika to come closer, you stood in the dark. As you walked into the spotlight towards her, your heart pounds even harder.


She was truly surprised, so was the crowd.

“Sorry for the intrusion, this is Wakatsuki Yumi. As a representative of the graduates, I brought you flowers. Congratulations on your graduation. Thank you for your hard work! Let’s work hard together from now on.”

You found her.

The flowers. The hug. Her eyes when she confessed of feeling lonely. No amount of thank you would suffice at the moment. If feelings could be poured, theirs would fill to the brim and overflow.

You took the mike she gave and spoke a few words before leaving.

Sakurai Reika had her graduation concert and you have never felt so proud in your life.

The distance between us has begun to close-in and may someday we’d walk hand in hand.



P/S: For fans who wants to watch the live concert. Dozo!

[Nogizaka46 Fanfic] Wakasama’s Departure

There were too much emotions and tears for Sakurai Reika as she looks at Wakatsuki Yumi in her black dress, handing flowers and gratitude for her last concert.

This is it.

Even when she told her about graduating, Reika never thought it’ll be enough to mentally prepare. Seven years of companionship and she basically had a whole big family in Nogizaka. And Yumi is special.

“Arigatou.” Wakatsuki held out the flower and slightly kneels for her, as Reika looks down to her dear Yumi.

It was both professional and personal.

As captain of the group, Reika was barely speaking by the ending. Even when people cheer along the last song, she was clutched by deep longing and despair.

The person to look for beside her. A familiar presence in almost every event. Wakatsuki was her person.

And Danke Sheen was ending.

With a loud cheer, confetti fell across the audience seat and all the member retreat to the back stage.

There were a lot of people in the backstage yet Sakurai felt a pang of loneliness.

Wakatsuki Yumi in her best smile greets and wishes everyone to continue their support on Nogizaka.

“You’d still be in Nogizaka, Reika,” Wakatsuki said as they talked the night before her graduation, “And I’ll be supporting you from the side, just like always.”

Reika waited at the bottom of the exit staircase as Yumi steps down with each click of footsteps in her high heel.

“Reika..” Wakatsuki smiles again with her damp eyes and pulls her into a gentle embrace, “Thank you for being here for me.”

“I…I’m going to miss you,” Sakurai tugs on her sleeve and continued, “But I’ll do my best so you must too.”

“It’s not the end,” Wakatsuki tries to laugh and steadied Reika by her arms, “We’ll still see each other when we can, go to each other’s performances.”

Reika just nodded as everyone moves to clear the stage and head back to rest. She lost count of the hugs, cheerful and tearful members that came to greet and talk to Wakatsuki before she leaves.

She was looking out for everyone that even the juniors were lost at words as she patted their heads and gave encouragements.

Nippon Budokan glitters in the night as Wakatsuki sighs at one last look, feeling both overwhelmed and satisfied while Reika looks at her silently.

The chilly air of December at 1am was refreshing.

“Let’s go home,” Wakatsuki smiled and stuffed Reika’s hand into her coat, “we can walk until you feel better.”

Reika gave her hand a tiny squeeze, “Can I stay over for tonight?” But tears started to pool as she lifts her head up to look at the sky.

“Absolutely,” Wakatsuki replied, “Anything for you.”

P/S: If there is anything that can help us get through the feeling of separation, it must be the chance of meeting each other again.


[Nogizaka46 Fanfic] Graduation

Wakatsuki Yumi stood outside a coffee shop, feeling the autumn breeze making its way along her bare neck as she looks at her watch.

2.25pm. Five minutes earlier.

It was a normal weekday, Sakurai Reika suggested for them to hang out since their schedules cleared up a bit. Wakatsuki came to like short hair now since many of her stage plays fits the current image.

Reika walked along the alley, glimpsing Wakatsuki’s head in the crowd, wearing a white wool shirt paired with a long checkered jacket. Her legs appear slimmer in her jeans.

She stopped in her steps, admiring Wakatsuki’s side profile. Soon, I may not be able to see this very often. And the idea tugs hard on her heart that she just walked and encircles Wakatsuki from behind.

An actual hug.

“Reika,” Wakatsuki smiled at the sight of her, “You’re early. I didn’t know you could do that.” She pokes fun of her while wriggling herself free, feeling the warmth upon her back.

“2.30pm, You owe me a parfait~” Reika giggled and guided Wakatsuki into the shop by her wrist.

Wakatsuki did not say anything when Reika’s dessert turned out to be humongous, not even when she managed to finish the whole thing with a smile on her face. Probably freezing her cheek in the process.


“What is it, Reika? You don’t act like the usual Captain I know.” She asked and cupped Reika’s cheeks. It may have been Wakatsuki’s hands or her own blushing, she’d not know while she takes in the sight of having Wakatsuki so close to her.

“This is unfair.” Reika pouts and looks away.

“What is?”

“We are losing Nanase and you all together. I don’t..” Reika stop mid-sentence and sigh, “I don’t know if I’d still want to stay anymore.”

While her eyes burn and pools tear to the brim, Wakatsuki gently wipes away a dropping tear from her face.

“Thank you for staying with me, all these years are very precious to me.” Wakatsuki said in her mellow voice.

She have made up her mind.

“I know that.” Reika took her hands and squeezed. “But allow me to feel sad, if that’s ok with you..”

Reika could not stop the sudden rush of emotions and sobs quietly while her tears came falling down.

Wakatsuki stood up and slides to the seat beside her, carefully guiding her face to her neck. Reika hides her face from everyone else while she tries to silence her own voice.

If heartbreaks are audible, Wakatsuki will have her own be broken. And willingly giving it up for her all over again.

Alternate Universe WakaRei

Ice cream melts at such a speed that you’d need to keep up as it losses its shape. This was those kind of summer.


Wakatsuki Yumi sat in front of the convenient shop, sucking down on the popsicle after a hard practice at the archery club. The orange hue of the setting sun was mezmerizing.


“Yumi,” Sakurai Reika suddenly jumped in front of her, blocking her view, “What are you day dreaming of? You didn’t even notice me when I was waving at you.”


“Reika,” Wakatsuki bite off a chunk from her popsicle and continued, “Oh, its nothing. I guess I was too tired to think.”


“I know you are working hard for the upcoming archery competition but do remember not to stress yourself, Yumi.” Sakurai-san sat beside her, resting her bag on her lap.


“So you just finished your work in the Student Council?”




Sakurai Reika took a quick bite at Wakatsuki’s popsicle while holding her hair away with her right hand.


“Reika~I was going to eat it you know…”


“But it was melting and I thought it will dirty your uniform if I don’t. Moh…” Reika answered with a smile and gave a fake angry face.


“Oh whatever.” Wakatsuki Yumi ignored her and took the last bite of her popsicle.


Reika the president of the Student Council felt her face turning beet red so she turned away to hide it.


Indirect kiss. *flustered*


“Ja, I’ll see you tomorrow then Reika.” Wakatsuki threw the stick into a rubbish bin and stood up to leave.


Just when Reika thought she had left, Wakatsuki turned around and said, “You owe me a bite of your ice cream ya!” She smiled and left the blushing Reika in her seat.


I wish this summer never ends…


[Nogizaka46 Fanfic] Her Reply



Seira: Nanase is so lovable I’d like to kiss her.


Nanase: *smiles shyly*


Reporter: And you did! During the live, Nanase’s fans were envious of you.


Seira: I did. *chuckles* With Nanase’s approval of course, though I was uncertain until the last second I thought she might just slip away. Nanase is a deity being already in my heart. *smiles*


Reporter: And Nanase surprised us by kissing back!


Nanase: *shakes her head and smiles* Because Seirarin is cute too.


Seira: *heart melts*


Reporter: Ahh~ Another Nanase love attack! For all the people out there, this is Nogizaka46 live. Over and out!




Writer’s note: Oh please don’t mind me, I’m just fooling around. XD




[Nogizaka46 Fanfic] Belated Christmas Request


Wakatsuki Yumi was invited to Sakurai Reika’s house in Tokyo after Nama Idol programme since they did not have any free time to be together other than exchanging a few gestures during work.


Wakatsuki wore a simple white long sleeve and black trousers under her coat, arrived in front of Sakurai’s apartment. Just before she had a chance to push the door bell, the door clicked and Reika appeared, smiling sheepishly.


“What’s with that face? Moh…” Wakatsuki replied, sensing the teasing atmosphere.


“Oh nothing, I just watched the broadcast and Yumi was so cute!” Reika said brightly as Wakatsuki enters, removing her coat and sling bag.






“Ahh…I don’t know what I should do with you.” Wakatsuki shakes her head and surrendered. Her apartment entrance was the same as she remembered, with neatly arranged shoes along the corridor and a pair of white fluffy slippers for her. Reika is being Reika as usual.


Reika noticing her outfit of the day could not help but jumped at her from behind, embracing her with a huge back hug. “Yumi.”


“Hey, what’s so sudden.” Wakatsuki half turned to see Reika’s face half burried on her left shoulder. “I just came from outside so don’t cling to me so much, you’ll get cold you know.”


“I don’t care.” Reika answered in a low mumble, “We missed this year’s Christmas together.”


“Eh? But I called you didn’t I? We even chatted during Christmas Eve.”


“That’s not the same.” Reika continued, “I want to be able to touch you. Not just hearing your voice.” The seriousness in her voice made Wakatsuki a bit flustered.




“Promise me to stay for the night.” Reika gave Yumi a squeeze, “In return…I’ll…present myself to you.”


The sentence dropped like a bomb and both blushed. Sakurai understood that she never confessed in such a serious manner but she could never forget what Wakatsuki has said back then.




“Ie…Zenzen,” Wakatsuki shakes her head and hugs Reika’s arm which is around her chest. “I’d be glad to.”
