They sat down
in the yellow sofa in the living room. Misato turned on the TV. Shinji noticed
that the game show program had ended and now the evening news was on. Misato
was quick to change the channel to the music video network. A happy and quick
song was playing, mostly an instrumental one. Shinji had heard it before; he
had a tape with it somewhere. The music actually suited the Drinking Battle
very well or at least Misato seemed to think so, humming to the tones while
piling up the beers on the table.
has a seven percent alcohol rate so its pretty strong, but it is only
33cl cans. The good news is that I have more then enough so we wont experience
any shortage for a long time. She said with a big smile on her face. Misato
was really in to this kind of games. Shinji wondered if she did this all the
time or only on rare occasions. Probably all the time; he concluded while watching
while she opened the cans. Misato putted the first beer in front of him at the
wooden table. Shinji swallowed hard. He had no experience with drinking alcohol
and he really had no idée how well he would handle it. From what he had
seen on TV and talked about with the other students at school he had a rather
good picture of its effects. The question was now how well he could take it.
Misato opened the first beer and looked at him.
Ill be as ready as I ever will be Misato, so lets just get it over
Misato hit him
in the head with the back of her fist.
did you do that for? Shinji said with surprised look on his face.
think you can get out of this game while trying to act all boring Shinji-kun
you are mistaken. Dont be such a little boy and start to drink your beer,
I promise it will be fun in a while. She said, still having that sinister
look in her dark brown eyes. Shinji looked at the beer and then decided. With
a strong hand he grabbed the can and put the opening to his lips. A dry carbonated
sting felt thru his tong, spreading to his throat as he began to drink the brew.
To his surprise it didnt taste that bad or at least not as bad as he had
not as bad once you get to taste some of it." Misato said while opening
her own can. Shinji put his beer on the table after finishing half of it.
that it didnt taste as bad as I imagine, but its still the bitterest
thing I have ever had, except for mountain tea." Shinji paused for a moment,
looking at Misato hulking down her first in one single act. She was good at
this, he thought. The contest is already over, but she will not let me go so
quickly. I could try and act like Im about to drop after finishing this
can, but then again I dont really know how you act drunk since I never
have been intoxicated with alcohol. Maybe I could just pretend to fall asleep.
How would she know the difference? Misato is a clever woman, but she is really
drunk now so I dont think she will notice. I have to act out now so I
dont have to sweep more of these cans.
"Ohwww! This drink is really getting to my head Misato! It feels like everything is spinning around. I cant seem to focus on the walls anymore. He fell to the side as he spoke the last word. Trying to lie as still as possible he waited to see what she would do. He could feel Misato rising from the sofa, probably heading for her bed room; he thought when he felt a pain in his side. He couldnt control his reflexes and jumped, sliding of the edge of the yellow pillows and crashed down on the wooden floor.
She had kicked
him in the ribs, something he was not prepared for and it took him by surprise.
Now complaining about his ribs Misato saw Shinji fully awake and smiled to herself.
Shinji-kun, somethings you just arent good at. Acting drunk after
drinking half a beer is one of them. No one becomes that drunk after so little,
not even you. The tone in her voice was that of teacher scolding one of
her students. Shinji could not help but smiling. The idée was bad from
the beginning. He knew he wouldnt fool Misato with such a poor act. Well,
he thought. If she wants a drinking battle she will get one. With this he stood
up and grabbed his beer, finished it in three gulps and then hit the can hard
on the table.
Let us see who will be the champion. I will show no mercy! Shinji said
with confidence. Misato looked surprised at first, but then smacked Shinji with
an open palm over his back, laughing at the change in Shinjis mod she
eagerly opened her second beer and began to drink it. Shinji, now serious about
the contest would not show any weakness and opened his second beer, gulping
it down just a little slower then Misato.
the way to go Shinji-kun! Shinji on the other hand was too caught up drinking
to listen to Misatos words, trying to swallow the content of his third beer
as quickly as possible. He knew that the game was not based on how quick one
could drink the beer, but the faster he drank the shorter he was forced to taste
the brew. Misato was also drinking her third one and thou Shinji would not admit
it yet he was starting to feel the effects of the alcohol.
The game went
on like this until the seventh beer. Shinji was now having great difficulty
coordinate his hand to the beer cans on the table. So this is how it feels like,
he thought. Being drunk is not so bad after all. Suddenly everything doesnt
seem so serious anymore, he reasoned.
He noticed his
eyes played tricks on him, showing things out of focus and sometimes the room
itself began to spin to the side. Despite this Misato still seemed to be in
control of things. Shinji tried to stand up but failed the first time, dropping
back to the sofa. The second time he manages to avoid falling down again and
reach for his eight can of beer. This proved a little difficult he noticed as
he felt his leg hit the table in the effort. He loosed his balance, shifting
his weight to his left side. Of course there was nothing to grab on to in the
process, trying to hinder the now unavoidable fall. Gravity took charge over
his body and sent him tumbling right over the sofa again. Misato herself was
really drunk now and only noticed the shadow coming before she felt a heavy
object crash down on her. The air in her lungs were forced out from the impact,
making Misato do a loud shout in surprise. Shinji on the other hand felt his
face landing on something very soft and warm.
you Baka!" Misato said with a slight irritated voice.
so sorry Misato! I tried to avoid you but it was impossible. Im sorry,
Im sorry, Im sorry! Shinji said, now scared that Misato would punish
him for his recklessness. Only then they both realised that Shinji's head was
pressing against Misato's breasts. Shinji could feel the nipples pushing through
the white t-shirt she wore; they were very stiff he noticed. As a reaction to
his discovery, Shinji's instincts automatically began to force blood to his
lower part, making his member rise from its slumber. Misato felt Shinji's penis
through his pants as it began to grow against her leg. Maybe it was the beer,
but something inside of her was creating an erotic feeling in her body. Am I
getting excited because of this boy? She thought. Shinji quickly removed himself
from the sofa. He feared that Misato would feel his erection and he certainly
wouldnt want to be thought of as a pervert. His action however was yet
again a result of bad judgment as his senses were still clouded by the alcohol
and once again gravity showed no mercy when he stumbled back. He could feel
himself losing all sense of direction. A sharp pain shot through his body as
he hit his head in the nearby wall when he fell.
are you alright?" Misato shouted as she jumped up from the sofa. Shinji
brought his hand to the back of his head and felt the beginning of a small bump
forming. He had not hit the wall as hard as he thought, but it sure hurt like
hell, he thought.
alright!" He said. Because he was drunk the pain quickly was replaced by
a throbbing feeling and after a couple of seconds he carefully lifted himself
from the floor.
take a look at it Shinji-kun." Misato said with the kind of voice a mother
would, comfort her child with when it got hurt. Shinji placed himself in the
sofa again and Misato began examine the bump on his head. Still drunk Misato
was a little clumsy in her effort to actually help Shinji. The more she felt
at the bump on his head the more it hurt and finally he shouted in pain from
her hard touch.
me like that you hear! If anything would happen to you while under my supervision
Ritsuko would have my head, not talking about what your father might do to me
should he found out what happened!" Misato said worried. Shinji felt like
laughing. His father would probably be glad if his son fell and hurt himself.
know what Ritsuko would do, but I dont think you have to worry about my
father." Shinji said with a low voice. Misato then remembered that Shinji
and his father were not close to each other. He had not really known his father
as he was always working at NERV headquarters. The only time they really had
talked was over the phone and those conversations were not the typical father
and son talks like normal families might have.
sorry Shinji; I forgot that Mr Ikari is not the typical father you might wish
for." Misato said as she gently stroke his shoulders.
your fault Misato. I hate my father because he doesnt spend any time with
me. Sometimes I wish that he could be like a normal father. Then I think of
his responsibility to the world and at NERV. I understand that he has a lot
to think about and dont have time to talk with me." Shinji said with
an understanding voice. Misato was not fooled however. She knew how it was,
being brought up without a father. In her case her father had died in the second
impact and that was probably better then having a father that actually stilled
lived, but didnt care for his child. She could feel Shinji's sad emotion
as he silently was staring down at the floor.
Then Misato did something that she herself wasnt prepared for. Suddenly Shinji felt something warm against his chin. Misatos lips were touching him, kissing him. Not the kind of kiss a friend would give, but a kiss filled with love and care. She held her lips pressed against him and then broke it off.
Shinji felt all
warm inside. What had just happened? He thought. He then felt Misatos
arms embrace him, hugging him tightly against her chest. Her hair tickled him
a little and her warmth was spreading though his body. Shinji felt safe with
her, he began slowly hug her back, feeling his way around her. He could sense
her breasts pushing against his chest only with thin fabric separating them
from him. His eyes sought out hers and he saw the face of a beautiful woman
with eyes as dark and passionate as anything he had ever seen. She kissed him
again, now directly on his lips. Shinji was a little unascertained about what
to do at first, but then began to meet it with the same passion Misato was showing
him. Finally she pushed her tong inside Shinjis mouth, feeling his own
and its surroundings. She felt so nice, Shinji thought. Is this how it feels
when you are truly loved by someone? Shinji began to slowly meet her tong with
his and soon they were both exploring each other, carefully at first, but as
time flowed the kisses became more daring and fierce. Misato was lost in a dreamy
state of mind. She could only feel the warmth of Shinji in her arms and the
loving tong in her mouth. She felt hot, hotter then anything she felt before.
The boy was craving for love and she wanted to give it to him. In a way she
needed him as much as he needed her. The result of being separated from love
for a long time was now showing as she felt herself become more daring in her
efforts to taste Shinji and giving him the love he deserved, but at the same
time a tiny moment of clarity struck her. She was his guardian, not his lover.
Could they possibly engage in this kind of activity? She was much older then
him, she should know better then trying to use him for her own needs. Was it
right to give Shinji false hope like this? But was it false? Could they actually
be lovers? How would the rest of her friends and the colleges at NERV react
if it got out that she was seducing him? She decided to brake off the kiss,
worried that the short insight might get loosed if the lust for him continued.
sorry Shinji. I dont think it's a smart idée to continue this."
She looked away as she said it, not wanting him to see the sadness in her eyes.
Shinji didnt understand. First she was kissing him like there was no other
in the world that would do it like he could and now she was rejecting him? Rejected,
he thought. The word suited him like a glove. In the end he was always rejected
from the people he cared about.
He stood up, forcing himself to ignore the effects of the alcohol. He looked at her. She was sitting with her arms between her legs and face down. She would not even give him a look. He felt like running away. The Drinking Battle had transformed into something warm at first, but change to something cold now. What should he do? He thought. He turned around and headed for his room, thinking of what he had done to make it all go so wrong
