STORY BY AKEMI NAKATA
The Start of a Beautiful Friendship (sorta)
(huff, huff) this is sooooo tiring!!!
I looked into my watch and said to myself, “I hope I'm not gonna be late!”
There is only fifteen minutes left but...
I turned my head towards the bus tracks. WHERE IS THE BUS??? I can't wait this long!
I put my bag of books down and rubbed my shoulders. My back is starting to really hurt! Stupid bus, stupid back, stupid BOOKS! Stupid, stupid, stupid! IT FEELS LIKE THIS IS THE ONLY BUS THAT RUNS IN KYOTO! BIG CITY! BIG BUCK AS WELL!!!
I was just studying until I realized what day it was and what little time I had. The books I borrowed were for studying for the big exams. Since I missed some days while helping my parents move with me to Kyoto, I had to study and take some notes of my own for the big exams. With those books, I ran a little late and I had run all the way to the bus station to find out that the bus is still not there! Not to mention the crowd that surrounds the station. UNBELIEVABLE!
If I don't return those books, I'll have to pay for everyday I miss to bring the books back! I borrowed about 7 big and heavy books. Since these books are old, the have to be taken care of carefully otherwise I would have to pay extra money. I can't do that! My work place just closed down and I just got paid my last amount of money! I can't just give it all away! All my hard-working money!!!
The bus station is called “Okiya,” meaning “big arrow” station that goes to a lot of places. I take this bus everyday to go to school, library, and to go shopping for food. I took a look at my watch for one moment and realized that five minutes had just gone by like a fly. TEN MORE MINUTES!!! THERE'S NO WAY I CAN MAKE IT THERE ON TIME! IT TAKES TEN MINUTES TO GO TO THE LIBRARY WITH A BUS! ESPECIALLY THIS BUS!
Just when I was going to give up hope, the bus finally came and I entered it before the rest of the crowd rushed in while pushing one another. What a stampede and all to get into the same bus! Seriously, why can't they make ten more buses around this area? RAHH!!!
I held tight on my back and some big guy came out of nowhere and pushed me down. My eyes were closed tight, hoping that there would not be another attack but there wast. Instead, I had to land on the person that I should revere in all living things. I landed on ...KAZUKI HABUYASHI!!! ABOVE ALL OTHER PEOPLE! WHY DO I HAVE TO LAND ON HIM?
“Get off of me!” was his first words as soon as I sat on his lap. I blushed brightly and got up as I pushed the same guy that hit me gently.
“I-I'm s-sorry. I-It was an accident...I didn't t-think I--”
Kazuki let off a sigh and said, “Don't look at me like that. Here, sit on my lap if you like.”
“W-what? I c-can't”
What's going on here?! WHY IS THE TRECHOUROUS MONSTER NOT YELLING AT ME??? THE POPULAR HABUYASHI!!! Argh...I'll never hear the end of this...especially tomorrow.
I pretended like I didn't hear him and turned to face the other direction. I could feel his eyes glaring at my back intensively as if it was on fire. I can't believe this! The Kazuki that pushed people around just offered a seat for a girl like me! And nonetheless, his LAP!
I realized what I was thinking and shook my head a little. WAKE UP! He's just teasing you!
All of a sudden, Kazuki got to a half-stand where he still looked seated, reached out his hand and grabbed me on the waist. As soon as he got me, he pulled me down onto his lap and still had his arms around my waist.
“I told you to sit on my lap! That's an order.”
My face turned red as I saw everyone else in the bus that could see us start to giggle and mumble to themselves.
Kazuki took the handbag that I carried along with me and looked inside. He returned it to me just shrugged.
“You looked suspicious when you were looking at your watch in the station. I thought you probably had a gun in there or maybe drugs and alcohol.”
WHAT? Why would a girl like me carry such a thing? He's so stupid! What a jerk he is right now!
Ten minutes did not take that long when the bus stopped and unloaded the people. I got up right away to avoid any more troubles with Kazuki and tried to get through my way in the crowd but the crowd just pushed me back to Kazuki. Kazuki looked so calm as he gently held on to me. Okee...someone tell me...why is he so calm?
The crowd went out with a rush and the bus started to feel a lot more loose. Kazuki took my arm and pulled me out of the bur. Right when I got out, I was held by Kazuki around my wrist and was told face to face, “Don't ever tell anyone at school about this, got it?”
Oh, now you're threatening. You're the most weirdest person I've ever met in my life!
“If I were to hear any of this happen, I'm gonna kill you. Understand?”
I looked at him with my scared look and nodded.
Right when I thought that Kazuki would finally leave me, he knocked me on the head and said, “You've got a nice tush.”
At what he just said, I got angry and said, “You're the most weirdest and meanest person I've ever met! Seriously! I wish none of this would ever happen! I'll just pretend I never even saw you!”
I could see his veins starting to pop and his rays of anger making it's way out to attack me. At first, I though he was really going to kill me but he just chuckled that out and said, “I know I'm handsome. You didn't need to go all out just to tell me that.”
What a p***k!
I stormed off with anger and a red face. My bag, once again on my shoulder as I make my way to the library. Those books make me look like a nerd, or a least a book worm but really, I'm not at all interested in any of these books. I looked like a dork! At least Kazuki didn't make fun of me about the books. I'm sure he understood why I need those books. Hey, I'm Hakura Hibisaya, class B-1, a fifteen years old normal girl and ready for life to take on its coarse of action!
It has been a week and three days. Mark this! HE'S NOT THERE TO BOTHER ME! YES! I wonder what he could be doing at a time like this. It still made me forget about Kazuki for those days even when I got crushed in the bus I still didn't remember. I even had to walk home when the teacher had me going for an hour for doing her a favor to help her organize her things. I missed my bus and it wouldn't come until an hour later so I had to walk home. When I got home, I was so exhausted but I still had to help with dinner and eat with the family.
I went up to my room and the door was opening by itself. I figured that I must have left the window open since it was a pretty windy day for the first day of fall. As soon as I got closer to the door, it flew open and a dark figure of a man came and attacked me with his hands all around me. My tight eyes finally open to find Yuji in front of me. Yuji smiled and chuckled at my expressions.
“Yuji! What are you doing here?” I yelled.
Yuji giggled and said, “I came here for a visit, especially to my baby sister.”
Yuji is my older brother who is 21 right now and should be studying in America to get a doctor's degree. Yuji has been away for three years except for a few visits from the breaks he gets from school. It is hard to keep track of Yuji when he's gone and when he's here for a visit that we just acted like he's not living here forever.
On the couch, we both sat silent while I flipped channels to channels. Yuji yawned and said, “You never gave me a greeting, Haruka.”
“Don't you think you already had a good greeting? You literally attacked me. Why are you here anyway? I thought you would be in America studying right now.”
Yuji sighed and said, “Do you really hate it when I'm here?”
“No, you just really surprised me, that's all. Actually, you scared me more than surprised me. So, you're probably here for your summer vacation aren't you? How's it going with the doctor thing?”
“Why are you in such a rush? We all have plenty of time.”
I sighed and said, “Easy for you to say. When dad and I transferred, I had to miss some school days to get this new house placed in a good fashion while helping mom get a new job at the record company. Then I had to get my notes from some stupid books for the major exams because I don't know anyone that can trust me with their notes.”
“Notes and exams? Why didn't you tell me over the phone last week? I would have come home earlier and help you with it.”
“You have things you need to worry about and I'm not a baby anymore. I'm a high school now. I can make it on my own.”
“I've already did my last test so all I need to do is come back home and take a nice, long vacation.”
I turned to him and asked with sarcasm, “Since when is going home a vacation?”
Yuji smiled and said, “Seeing my cute little sister is what makes it a vacation.”
“Ugh, I've had enough already.”
That night, I couldn't even study with Yuji hovering over my head and reading with me. Not to mention about my brother going in and out of my room to get things. I finally gave up and fell asleep on the desk. Yuji came back into the the room to return some things to me and saw me asleep. He put his things away, pulled my chair out and put me in bed.
“Good night, Haruka.”
The next morning, I didn't have time to cook breakfast for everyone so I left. It turned out that I forgot my bag so I had to go back home. When I go home, I couldn't find it and I had to go all the way to Yuji to help me find it. Yuji just laughed at me and took out my bag from under his chair.
“Really! Now I remember why it was so peaceful when you're not around to play games with me!”
Yuji grabbed my head under his arm and said, “I'm taking you to school. Did you forgot that your big brother can drive you to school? It's been a long time since I brought you to school.”
(gasp) I totally forgot! Now I don't have to waste my money and wait for the bus to make me late for school! This is really good news!
At school, the first thing I had to do was the exam which should take the whole day. I had to wait for the exam since I was in the list for “B.”
The group of sophomores were separated into two groups of “A” and “B.” I just happened to be the second to wait. I didn't even have to go to school early only to just get my tag which had my name and test number. In that case, I went to the lunch room and started to study. From nowhere, Kazuki sat down next to me and grabbed my book. He examined it and never look at me.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“I'm memorizing it.”
“You can't just memorize it in one day.” I argued. Kazuki turned his face to me and said, “There's this thing called, visual memorizing.”
“That doesn't really work at all.”
Kazuki grinned and said, “I know. That's why you're going to help me pass this test.”
“What? No!” I said out loud. No one really cared or heard me since the whole cafeteria was buzzing with study. Kazuki didn't care so he just left me in shock. That whole day, I studied the best I could and Kazuki was nowhere in sight. It made me feel so relieved. In that case, I went to the entrance of the room where we were all supposed to take our exams and found it empty. I sat down and begin studying here so I wouldn't have to worry about the bell or people shoving their way into the room while there are still some students trying to get out of the exam room. I thought that the room would give me some time to study but it just brought me to the bird's nest. Kazuki was there the whole time. He was sitting in a dark corner next to the sink and kept quiet while he stared at me. As soon as I heard his voice, I turned to the corner and felt disgusted. What a JERK! He should be studying but he just sits there like nothing is going on!
Suddenly, the bell rang and the door opened. Kazuki and I went into the room right away before everyone went out. Kazuki gave his tag to the teacher and I handed mine as well. I sat in the back where it is usually quiet and Kazuki sat right next to me. I sighed and thought to myself. Is he serious? I will not let him cheat like that! It's not fair!
When the bell rang again, the whole room was packed and I already knew what was going to happen but it didn't. I started my exam as quick as I could without getting anything wrong. Half past the whole three hours of exams, the teachers left for lunch break and just let us relax for a moment. By then, I forgot all about the deal that Kazuki and I had earlier in the morning. I sat still and continued to finish my exam until Kazuki just shoved his whole exam to me and said, “Finish this.”
“What? Are you serious?”
Kazuki gave me that angry face I've never seen before and he threatened, “If you don't give me a good grade, I swear, I won't get out of your back.”
“Don't you think you're being a little too harsh to Haruka? I mean, she's going to get in trouble if anyone finds out.” one guy said.
I didn't want to get more threats so I just went on ahead and started copying faster than a copy machine.
“What's up with her?”
Kazuki chuckled and said, “She owed me some so I let her pay easily with this.”
“Major mercy...” the guy went back to his work. It turned out that I didn't really have to rush all the answers in since the teacher was in his lunch break and demanded a half an hour lunch break. Soon enough, I finished both our booklet before the teacher came.
“Where were you this morning?” Kazuki whispered into my ear. It made me jumped but I have no choice but to tell him the truth.
“My brother picked me up today...I was going to be late.”
When I turned to look at Kazuki's expression, he wasn't even listening!
Kazuki usually have the same classes with me but he's always out of school and doing something no knows. Some people say that he goes out to buy drugs and go knock some prostitutes out. Many people figured he was rich because he lived with his rich parents and he gets the money to spend whatever the heck he wants to spend on. And for today, he left again. I never saw Kazuki after the exam while we had to go to the lobby for the admonitions of next semester's exams.
Later on, I was told to wait at school so that Yuji would pick me up but he never showed up. WHERE THE HELL CAN YOU BE AT THIS HOUR?
