and i love ashu pairing too especially with nanamin but with kiichan is cute too..
maybe it's because i just love ashu too much
Here please enjoy this update now!! Thank for reading and the comments btw..
Since the mid term was just few days apart, most of the students spent their time studying, either alone at home or together with their friends somewhere. Like the other students Mai, Nanami, Wakatsuki and Reika were also studying together. It was more like Nanami tutoring the three other girls actually.
"Woaa.. Really Nanamin you're the best!! It's easier than i thought. Thank you so much!" Reika said.
"Yeah! Not like the tutor we got who doesn't help at all. And yet we can't continue our club activities if we don't improve our study. The teachers really are unfair." Wakatsuki complained.
"If you know the basic of course you can. You just need to practice more after that. Here try this one." Nanami gave a paper to the girls.
"No doubt from the top student. How can you manage to study well when you have to tutor a middle schooler and now tutoring us too?" Wakatsuki said amazed.
"When i'm teaching you guys like this i'm also studying. Beside you guys ask for my help of course i need to help." Nanami said.
"But why must you drag me to come too? I don't even remember asking for your help." Mai butted in complaining.
"You're the worst Maiyan. You should be the last person to protest. No more complaining. Do this questions now."
"I'm tired.. Let me rest.. If we continued i can't concentrate anymore. I won't even understand what i don't understand anymore." Mai lied down on the table.
"No! You've just started."
"You already the dumbest captain we've ever had. Don't be the dumbest of our grade too Maiyan." Wakatsuki smirked.
"Mouu... You're so mean.."
"I think we should make new rule to ban bad grade students have club activities for real Reika." Nanami suggested.
"Eh??" Mai surprised. "You won't do that."
"Of course we will. Too many students like you. Beside we have the pres here. Right Reika?"
"Geez.. I hate you Nanamin."
"If you still want to pitch you better study seriously now." Nanamin ordered.
"Hai hai sensei... How can i solve this one?" Mai asked but she didn't get any respon from Nanami.
"Wait a minute." Mai was cut off.
Turned out Nanami was looking at the front door, frowning. This made the other girls to also look at the door and found two middle schoolers just entered the cafe.
"Who are they?" Reika asked.
"Asuka chan and Kiichan. Asuka chan is Nanamin's student." Mai answered instead since Nanami was busy glaring at her student who still haven't noticed her mad tutor.
"The one she's tutoring?" Reika asked and Mai nodded.
"She's so dead." Wakatsuki chuckled.
The two girls walked while chitchating happily until they noticed four girls were looking at them from one of the tables.
"Hmm.. Suddenly i don't really want the cake here. Let's go Kiichan." Asuka turned back to the door. But realising her friend wasn't following her she looked back.
"Kiichan.. Let's go before sense-" She was cut off by Hinako pointed at Nanami who was gesturing them to come closer.
"We better go there Ashu.. You'll be in more trouble if you run away."
"Geez... That's what i avoided. Why of all place??" Asuka talked to herself.
"Good evening. What a coincidence to meet you here sensei. We really meet a lot outside our tutoring time." Asuka smiled sweetly, tried to run from the scolding part.
"That's true.. We really meet a lot." Nanami smiled. "But don't you think that means you never at home studying?"
In instant her sweet smiled turned into bitter smiled. "We're about to study together here. Right Kiichan?" Asuka nudged her friend.
"A-ah right.. Right." Nanami looked suspiciously.
"But looking at your small bag with your drum stick sticking out like that, i don't think you're going to study." Nanami pointed at Asuka's bag which she abrubtly hid behind her.
It was true that after ate here with Hinako, Asuka was going to practicing with her band.
"The mid term is just days apart and yet you still playing around. You should study too Kitano san."
"Ha-hai." Hinako answered, not expecting her name being called too.
"Go back home now and start studying! I'll give you a test tomorrow. You'll be in trouble if you can't answer that."
"Eehhh?" Asuka complained.
"Good luck Asuka chan.." Mai butted in.
"We'll get going then." The two bowed and then left the cafe instantly.
"She looks a lot like the lazy Maiyan now, Nanamin." Wakatsuki said suddenly.
"What! You just started studying more Waka. We're at the same boat if the teachers didn't threaten you."
"I think it really should be done to make her study seriously."
"Do what?" Mai asked.
"Like the teachers did to Reika and Waka." Nanami smirked.
"Poor Asuka chan." Mai shook her head.
"Don't make me do the same to you too Maiyan."
"Hai hai sensei. You're scary." Mai started answering the questions in front of her.
Hinako observed her friend ever since they went out from the cafe. She couldn't stop glancing at Asuka who was smiling like crazy now.
"What the heck Ashun? Are you an M?"
"What do you mean Kiichan?" Asuka answered still smiling like an idiot.
"You are smiling happily like that although you've just been scolded. That's how usually an M is."
"Heh? I'm not.."
"Yes you are. You look so happy. It's written all over your face."
"Nah you're mistaking it.. Let's go grab an ice cream."
"Don't you need to go home and study now? She'll be more angry if you don't finish the test well tomorrow."
"Nah i'm okay with angry Hashimoto sensei. It's quite entertaining actually." Asuka grinned.
"Do you like her?" Hinako asked suddenly made Asuka caught off guard.
"Wha-what? Where do you get that idea? Of course no!" Asuka answered stuttering.
"But look at you. You're grinning like crazy talking about her. You even like making her mad. It's like you want to get her attention."
"I just want to disturb her so she will quit. Let's stop this non sense. Come on!" Asuka ran away, left Hinako behind.
"You never good at lying you know." Hinako whispered. "Wait for me Ashu!"Next day...
"Can i take a nap sensei?" Asuka stopped playing her phone and asked Nanami who was checking her test.
"No.. You'll be asleep for real. There's so many thing left to learn." Nanami said still frowning, checking the test.
"Geezz.. You're really tiring me out. I don't understand how can you still so excited to teach me. Can i rest for a bit after this sensei?"
"..." Nanami didn't respond.
"Sensei? Now you stop responding me. You're too uptight." Asuka continued playing her phone but suddenly it was taken from her.
"Eh? My phone.."
"You don't have the right to rest. These all are wrong. How many times i've teached you these kind of questions. You never listen to me seriously. That's why you can't solve these simple questions." Nanami scolded Asuka after she finished checking the test she gave.
"Eh? I thought i did quite well."
"You're not careful. Many questions should have been right if you think more carefully. Here look at this." Nanami pointed at the paper.
"I've told you sensei. This is impossible for me."
"It's not that you can't do this. It's because you don't want to be able to do this!"
"No.. I never said i don't want to. I just can't. Why is everyone always nagging me to have a good grade?" Asuka complained.
"Because it is important. You need good grade to get into good high school."
"I try to be realistic. Since i'm never not good at studying, i put a lot of effort so i can play drum this well. I won't be this good if i do two of them. The two of them will be halfassed."
"Then you can do well if it's just one of them right?"
"Of course. I'm not a genius like you."
"Okay then it's decide. Your mom and i have talked about this and now i'm become more sure this will work."
"Wha-what is it?"
"We won't push you to do both studying and drum. Like you said it will be halfassed. We'll make you focus just on studying."
"Eh? What do you mean?"
"We are confisticating your drum so you can study more seriously."
"Eh!! Why? You don't need to do this far." Asuka ran to her drum room just to see an empty room.
"You can play drum really well because you put studying aside so you'll also study well if you put drum aside. Beside i'm here now helping you." Nanami said.
"No! It's different! Don't put my drum into this kind of situation!"
Asuka ran toward her drum's room just to find an empty room now.
"Mom! Where is my drum?? Mom!" Asuka yelled, calling your mom.
"Stop yelling Asuka. You're disturbing everyone." Asuka's mom came.
"Where's my drum?"
"I move it to other place so you can study more seriously Asuka. You have to get into a good high school. I do this for you so no more complaining." Asuka's mom said.
"But you don't have to do this mom!"
"All this time have you ever studying? You're just playing your drum and never touch your books. You won't change if i don't do this. Just study well with Hashimoto sensei if you want your drum back." Asuka's mom told the now crying Asuka.
"I don't want you to be my tutor anymore! I hate you!" Asuka said to Nanami then she ran back to her room and slammed her bedroom's door.
"I'm sorry sensei."
"It's okay ma'am. We already know it's gonna be like this. But she will study more seriously since she must want her drum back." Nanami ensuring Asuka's mom.
"Yes.. Please guide my daugther well sensei."
"Of course i will. Hmm.. I think we shouldn't continue the tutoring now. She must be still really mad."
"Right. You should go home now sensei. It's already late. Please take care of her drum."
"Leave it to me ma'am. I'll keep it safe and sound. Then.. I'll get going now." Nanami bowed.
"Be careful on your way."
Just one day away before the mid term began put the students in much pressure. Most of the students packed their things quickly and went straight to their home to prepare for the test tomorrow.
There were not many students left at the class although the bell was just ringing few minutes ago.
"Nishino san sensei want to meet you at the office now." One of the students who was left in the class told Nanase.
"Thank you." Nanase nodded and said really quietly. She went to the office as soon as she was told. The office was quite far from her class so she chose to leave her things didn't want to carry her heavy bag around.
"Quickly take it." One of the students at class said. Turned out they were the usual classmates who liked to bad mouthing Nanase.
"Eh? Why must me? You're the one who told us about that book."
"Geezz just say it if you're scared. Loser."
"I just don't want to be the one who takes it. If you're that brave you should take it then."
"Quickly guys.. She will come back soon."
"Okay okay.. I'll do it." The three girls came closer to Nanase's bag.
"Is that the book?" One of them asked.
"It is if i'm not wrong." The one who took the book opened the book trying to find what she was searching.
"See?? What have i told you? I heard her talking with Shiraishi senpai clearly."
"I know it.. She's a stalker. Look at all these Waka sama drawing."
"Is she drawing all these? She's quite good." One of them turned the pages and said absentmindedly.
Instantly she was slapped by the other girls. "That's not the point. Beside these are not that good."
Not long after they heard foot step coming closer.
"She's back already?"
Panicly they tore some of the portraits and put the book back to Nanase's bag and then they ran away from the class.
"How weird. Sensei didn't even call for me." Nanase continued packing her stuffs.
Nanase looked at her watch. It was still early and now her parents would be at home for sure. "I think i'll study outside until pass midnight again today."
Today Nanase decided to study at convenience store not far from her house since it was opened 24/7. Sometimes when she didn't have to be out too late she would be in some restaurant and then went back home. But since she need quiet place to study and her parents wouldn't go out until midnight she need a 24 hours opened place. Beside she could buy something to eat when she was hungry right?
"Nishino san?" Nanase looked up when her name was called. "You're really Nishino san! What are you doing here?"
Nanase didn't answer.
"Don't you remember me? I'm your classmate, Takayama Kazumi." Nanase bowed a little.
Nanase really never bother to know who was in her class. She wouldn't befriend them anyway.
"Why are you out here this late. Don't you feel cold?" Nanase looked down at her books in front of here.
"Ah you're studying.. I guess you don't want to be at home. That's why you're studying here." Nanase surprised by Kazumi's remark.
Realising her fault Kazumi looked at Nanase who looked at her surprised. "Ah i'm sorry. I didn't mean it. I just.. Hear some rumor.. Umm.. About your house.. Situation. So.. I just come up with a conclution. Sorry.. If it offend you." Kazumi said more and more quietly as she continued.
Nanase shook her head. "It's okay. You're not wrong." Nanase answered for the first time.
"Waaa.. You're finally talking to me." Kazumi sat in front of Nanase.
Nanase looked down and continued her study.
"Ah! I got an idea!" Kazumi suddenly said. "Let's study together at my house. You can just sleepover at my place. Being outside at this hour is really cold, you'll get sick. Beside it's too dangerous."
"Come on Nishino san." Kazumi was packing Nanase's stuff and then dragging her along without even waiting for an answer.
"Come on in." Kazumi said still dragging Nanase in.
"What took you so long Kazumi?" A middle age woman came out.
"Oh who are you coming back with?" She said when she saw Nanase.
"This is my friend mom, Nishino Nanase. We met at the convenience store. She was studying alone there. That's why i ask her to come with me."
"Hee.. You shouldn't be there alone at this hour Nishino san. It's dangerous. You haven't gone home?" Kazumi's mom asked seeing Nanase was still wearing her uniform. Nanase just nodded.
"Have you eaten? We still have some food left."
"I-it's okay ma'am. I've eaten at the convenience store before."
"Okay then just tell me if you want to eat something."
"Ye-yes.. Thank you very much."
"Ah by the way where is the milk Kazumi?"
"Oh my god! I forgot to buy it!"
"This girl.. You're still young.. How can you be this forgetful!" Kazumi's mom said.
"I talked to Nishino san so i can't help it if i forgot."
"Your memory is too short. That's why your grade is never good."
"Why are you bringing that up suddenly?"
The mom and daughter stopped arguing when they heard Nanase giggled. "Ah i'm sorry. This is kind of new to me. That's why i find this intersting."
"It's not fun Nishino san. She always nags at me."
"What? You always forgetful that's why i complain. That's enough. Just think this as your own home Nishino san. Study well girls. I'll leave you two now."
"Thank you Takayama san."
"Night mom." Kazumi waved. "Let's go to my room Nishino san." Kazumi held Nanase's hand and pulled her along.
"Which one do you want? This or this?" Kazumi took out her clothes for Nanase's change.
"It must be fun to have a mom like yours."
"... Nah.. She's not that good. She nags so much."
"Why are you so kind to me? Your friend won't like it if they know i'm here."
"So what? They don't have the right to decide who i hang out with. Beside I like you and i want to be your friend."
"Really? I never know how it feel to have friend."
"You have me now. I'm your friend. Whenever you don't feel like going home just come over here. You're always welcome."
"Thank you Takayama san."
"We're friend right? Stop calling me Takayama san. It's like you're calling my mom. Kazumin is enough."
"Okay.. Kazumin. Then call me Nanase."
"Hmm.. I'll call you Naachan. It suits you. Can i?" Nanase nodded and then they giggled.
"Here your clothes. Take a shower first. You'll be refreshed."
"Okay." Nanase took the clothes and then went into the bathroom. She never felt as happy as today.
