Summary: Bernd gets Amber a special birthday present…
Author’s note: Please note that Amber belongs to Kat; I’m just borrowing her for this fic.
Author’s note 2: Ghost sushi is a variation on sushi made by Kozosushi, at one time a very popular takeout sushi place in Japan. Now it’s only made 4 times a year in the beginning of July.

For Kat with love… Happy Bday!!

Bernd sat at his computer, working on a project that was due by the end of the week. He looked at his phone when he thought he had heard it ping. He had a text from his brother about a special delivery. Bernd got up and texted back that he would be right over. He shoved his phone in back pocket, and grabbing his keys, he left the house. It didn’t take long for him to reach his brother’s place.

Bernd buzzed Didi’s apartment. “Can you let me in?” Seconds later, the door opened. He hurried upstairs to find his brother, waiting for him. “Hey, Didi!”

“Hey, Bernd. What’s in the super secret package I had to sign for?” Didi walked into the kitchen, his brother tagging along behind.

“Something for Amber’s birthday.” Bernd grinned when he saw the package. He walked over to it and picked it up.

“I thought you got her something.” Didi gave him a funny look. “Her birthday was two weeks ago.”

“I know and I did. This is something extra.” At the look on his brother’s face he added, “If I could have afforded to take her Japan for her birthday, I would have. Since I can’t, I decided to bring a bit of Japan here.”

“I see…” Didi raised an eyebrow.

“You know how she likes sushi.”

Didi nodded. “And?”

“Well, she mentioned something about ghost sushi a while back and I did investigating, and I found the store that sells it and they have a site, and no, I can’t read Japanese, but Google translate can. Anyways… I ordered her some ghost sushi. Sadly it takes time to get here. I hope it’s still good.” Bernd poked the box with his finger.

Didi heaved a long suffering sigh. “Try not to poison her, okay?”

Bernd, hoping his brother was kidding, smirked at him. “Will do! Anyways, I’d better get this back. And Didi?”


“I ordered some Japanese porn for James. That should be coming here too.” Bernd chuckled at the look on his brother’s face.

Didi was not amused.

“See ya! And uh… Danke!”

Bitte.” Didi saw him out.

Bernd got in his car and drove home. He could not wait to give Amber her unexpected and late birthday present. He hoped it would still be okay to eat after all the time it spent in transit, not to mention, sushi was best eaten as fresh as possible.

Getting out of his car, he hurried up to the house. He went inside and kicked off his shoes. Bernd walked into the kitchen and Amber was there, making tea. “Hey, Amber!”

“Hey, Bernd.” She poured hot water into her mug and let the tea steep. Amber turned to face him. “What’s in the box?”

“This?” he grinned and handed it to her. “Why don’t you open it and find out?”

She looked at the box. “It’s addressed to you…” Amber frowned and looked up at him. “Why does it have your name and your brother’s address?”

“It’s a surprise for you.”

“Oh… It’s not some weird-assed tentacle porn anime, is it?” Amber smirked at him. “It is from Japan.” She started opening the package.

Bernd laughed. “No, that should be coming soon, no pun intended. I found a few interesting titles for James. Hurry up and open it!”

Amber shook her head at him. When she opened the inner foam box, her eyes widened. She smiled. “You didn’t?!” She took out a small plastic container with Japanese writing on it and a picture of girl she assumed was a ghost.

“Yup!! I just hope it’s still edible.” He kissed her cheek. “Happy birthday, Amber.”

“Thanks. I hope so.” She took out the two containers of ghost sushi. “You want to join me?”

Bernd shook his head. “They’re for you, but I’ll sit with you while you eat it.”


They sat at the kitchen table. Amber opened one container, the other having been put in the fridge. She took the enclosed chopsticks and began to eat. Underneath the bed of white rice, were the toppings. She found salmon, shrimp, octopus, tuna, fried tofu, shiitake mushrooms, and more. It was like sushi heaven in each bite.

Bernd loved the look on her face and the happy sounds she made as she ate it.

“I think I’m having a mouth-gasm,” Amber said, before taking another bite.

“Good.” He smiled at her.

“Forget good, it’s great!” Amber ate the last bite. “Thanks, Bernd.” She reached across the table and gave his hand a gentle squeeze. “I’ve wanted to try it, after hearing about it. Anyway, if you don’t mind, I’ll keep the other one for later.”

“No problem.” Bernd got up from the table. “Sadly, I need to get back to work.” He kissed her cheek and headed upstairs to his room, as he worked from home, happy his late and unexpected gift was a hit.
