Title: Chigatte mo Iin da yo! ~Mainly TanaKame, TakaGaki~ [FINALE - Ch. 93 - (1/30)]
Post by: SarangAi on September 04, 2010, 02:24:37 AM
I'M BACK~~~~ :cow: :otomerika: :yossi:

Anybody miss me?  XD
I actually kinda missed all of you guys, and the habit of checking for comments every morning... :P

So I'm back with my second fic, Chigatte mo Iin da yo! = It's Okay to be Different!

Just like I've promised, TanaKame is the main along with TakaGaki and ShigeJun on the side. :)
I threw in ShigeJun again, because I came to like the couple as I was writing Kokoro no Uta XD

So i'm trying something new with the plot this time...
...It's a Gender-Bender.
I thought it was kinda risky at first, but hopefully, the story is still good enough to keep you guys hooked :nervous


Summary
   When Eri coincidentally meets Tanaka Reina of the prestigious all-girls school Haro Gakuen, she is immediately mistaken as a boy because of her short haircut and her plain attire.  But instead of correcting Reina, Eri decides to let her believe that she is a guy whose mother is from America.  Her friend Risa doesn’t want to get involved in the situation, for she is preoccupied with her own heartache for the new history teacher, but she gets mixed up in it anyway.  When the secrets start piling up along with various pasts, both tragedy and comedy ensues. 


Doesn't give you too much, right? :lol:

But just like before, I also made a trailer! (with real subtitles)! :D
[Trailer] [Trailer] Chigatte mo Iin da yo! (Arc 1) ~Morning Musume Fanfiction~ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc62u5PsWXU)


So yeah, if you're interested, stay with me!!! :twothumbs

btw, can anybody tell me how I can show a picture as part of my post?  I wanna do Character Files but I dunno how to put the image from My Documents in... :sweatdrop:

Yay~I am the first to comment. I'm really looking forward to this new story, and great trailer btw. I really like the usage of subtitles and stuffs. The summary doesn't give much of a clue, but the gender-bender part caught my attention. Thanks for the quick update. Gambatte!! :D

Btw, I am unsure how to upload pictures either. However, there is a button that allows you to insert an image. You simply have to go to a free online site (such as photobucket) and upload your image there first. Then, you'll obviously get a link. So, you do the normal procedure but pasting that link in between the [img] tags.

I feel a Coffee Prince-esque comedy/drama/romance coming up :D (I wasn't a big Coffee Prince fan, but I can make it work for TanaKame~)
Ai as a history teacher!! You know, I have a soft spot for student-teacher romances in fan fics :lol:

It's cuz summer is ending and I need to go back to studying and my average daily life... :smhid

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 1

   “I still don’t understand why you kept insisting on having your own place,” Risa grumbled as she rocked back and forth on the couch.  “You could’ve moved in with us; it would’ve saved you all this trouble.”

   “Thanks, Risa-chan, but no thanks,” Eri grinned as she busily moved around the house.  “I can’t do that to your mom; she’s already got a handful raising you.”

   “Hey, I don’t want to hear that from you,” the bean frowned.  “You’re the one that made your parents cry when you said you won’t go back to Yokohama with them.”

   “That’s only because my parents are so overly dramatic,” the turtle shot back, rolling her eyes.

   Eri sighed as she started to remember the happening from a couple weeks ago, when her parents grabbed each of her arm and pleaded with her to move to Yokohama with them.  The daughter had refused over and over again, saying that she didn’t want to leave her friends and school behind.  She loved Tokyo, and there was absolutely no reason for her to want to move. 

   In the end, Eri’s parents decided that she could stay in Tokyo by herself in an apartment home in the same building as her family friend, Risa.  The fact that Risa’s mother was very caring and together, despite being a widow, calmed the turtle parents down a little.  After all, Mama Gaki was way more mature than Mama or Papa Kame.

   Risa had insisted that her friend move in with her two-person family but Eri had refused.  There was nothing wrong with the Niigakis; Risa’s mom was one of the nicest people the turtle had ever met.  But that made her feel even sorrier every time Mama Gaki did something kind for her.  She didn’t want to burden the generous woman in any way.

   “Okay, I think everything is basically set up…” Eri said, looking around the living room.  She ran her fingers through her short hair as she started to skim through a list in her head.  “My bedroom is all set up and the bathroom is good too…”

   “How about the kitchen?” Risa reminded.

   “Yeah, everything’s in place,” the turtle answered, tapping her chin.  “I guess I just need to get a couple things to fill the fridge.  I’m going to run down to the convenience store real quick.”

   “You can have dinner at my house,” Risa offered.  “If you buy the ingredients and come back to cook, you’re going to end up having dinner at bed time.”

   “I think I’ll take up on the dinner offer then,” Eri laughed.  “But I still have to fill the fridge for breakfast, so I’m going to go buy some stuff anyway.  I’ll meet you back at your house.”

   “Sounds good,” Risa smiled, jumping off the couch.  She walked out of the apartment as her friend followed behind her.  Eri locked up her house and pressed the elevator button.  Risa eyed her friend’s attire.  “You’re just going to go like that?”

   “Huh?” Eri looked down at herself; she was wearing a black t-shirt with sweatpants and sneakers.  She shrugged.  “Why not?  It’s just the convenience store.”

   “Kameha, you have such a pretty face,” Risa sighed, shaking her head.  “Sometimes, I wish you would dress up a little more instead of wearing clothes that make you look like a guy.  You know, you nearly gave me a heart attack when you showed up at school one day with that haircut.”

   “Not as much as you scared me when you cut your hair on the same day!” Eri grinned.  “Everybody made fun of us, remember?  We really are like twins separated at birth…”

   “But the difference is that I plan to grow out my hair while you plan to keep it that way,” Risa sighed.  “I liked your long hair more, Eri.”

   “Thanks for judging me based on the length of my hair, Risa-chan,” Eri said, rolling her eyes. 

   The elevator dinged, indicating that they had reached the bottom floor.  Risa walked up to one of the two doors and opened it. 

   “I’ll see you in a couple minutes!” she smiled before closing the door behind her.

   Eri continued to walk out of the building into the warm, spring air.  The sun was starting to set as the turtle skittered through the parking lot, out of the apartment complex.  The streets weren’t as crowded as usual, since it was a Sunday and everybody was home for family time.  Eri finally reached the convenience store; she grabbed a shopping basket from the door and walked in.

   After about 20 minutes, the turtle finally gathered everything she needed, including cereal, juice, milk, eggs, and other typical food assortments.

   She hauled the basket over to the cash register and stood at the end of the line, which wasn’t really a line since there was only one other person in front of her who was being checked out at the moment.  Eri struggled to place the basket on the register, accidently bumping into the person in front of her in the process.  She started to apologize, as the girl in front of her turned around.  Eri gasped softly as her words got choked back; her eyes grew wide in awe.

   In front of her was one of the cutest girls she had ever seen.  The girl had straight, light brown hair, almost orange, that traveled down to her chest.  Her eyes were honey brown that glistened in the light.  She was wearing a pink dress and black stockings that went above her knees.  She looked intimidating in a way, because of her cat-like eyes, but her petit figure begged to differ.  She smiled as she narrowed her eyes a little.

   “You’re supposed to say sorry, pretty boy,” she said.

   “Huh… Oh!  Sorry!  I, um… it’s, ah… it’s my fault,” Eri stammered.

   “Apology accepted,” the girl chuckled as she turned back to the cash register.

   Eri’s eyes stayed wide open as she breathed in and out to calm herself.  She stared at the back of the girl’s head, trying to imagine the beautiful face she had just seen.  And her cute voice that called her…

   Wait.  Did she just call her “pretty boy”?

   “Next costumer!”

   Eri jumped out of her trance as she quickly moved forward to the counter.  The convenience store worker quickly checked out everything in the basket.  The petit girl from before was standing at the edge of the counter, double-bagging her things so the plastic wouldn’t fall through.  Eri kept on glancing at her, even while taking out her wallet, for she was unable to take her eyes off of this cute girl.

   “That’ll be 1700 yen,” the store worker said, making the turtle jump back into reality again.

   Eri started to dig through her wallet and unearthed all the money she had inside; she hadn’t brought much.  The store clerk counted up the money and sighed.

   “You’re short 200 yen,” she informed.

   “Really?” Eri gasped.  “Um… Just… just wait a moment…”

   She started to dig through her wallet again and checked all her coins.  Why didn’t she think of refilling her wallet before she left home?  After all, her worrisome parents had left quite a number of yen behind for her. 

   As Eri continued to bit her lips in frustration, the cat-like girl from before stared at her intently.  Her lips curved into a small smile, entertained by how unorganized and air-headed this person was.  She opened her own wallet and took out the amount of money the turtle was missing.  She handed it to the store clerk.

   “Here,” she smiled, “this should make up for his shortage.”

   “No, it’s fine!” Eri quickly said, shaking her head.  “I can just not buy something; you don’t need to pay for me!”

   “It’s fine,” she reassured.  “It’s just 200 yen.”

   Before Eri could protest more, the girl grabbed a hold of her bags and walked out of the store.  Eri quickly got the receipt from the clerk, grabbed her own bags, and ran out after her. 

   “Wait!” the turtle yelled out, causing the petit girl to turn around.  “How can I… How can I repay you?”

   “You don’t need to pay me back,” the girl grinned.  “Since you’re kind of cute, I’ll let it go this time.”

   “But we’re strangers,” Eri huffed, stopping the girl from leaving.  “It would be rude of me to just take your money like that—”

   “Do you live near here?”

   “Huh?” Eri raised an eyebrow in confusion at the girl’s sudden question.  “Um… yeah…”

   “Then here’s what you can do,” the girl smiled.  “If you’re so desperate to pay me back, keep some money on you next time and if we see each other, you can repay me.  Deal?”

   “Does that mean you live near here too?” Eri asked, smiling.  “Maybe I can—”

   “Not a good way to get a girl’s address, pretty boy,” the girl interrupted again, smirking.  “But you’re cute, so I’ll forgive you.  See you.” 

   She gave a wink before turning around and walking away.  Eri stared at the beautiful girl, still in her own little world.  Her face, her scent, and everything about her seemed to still waft in the air.  And her voice that had called her...

   Wait.  Did she just call her “pretty boy” again?

Oooooooooooooo!

A promising new premise!

'Pretty boy' Kame and cute, yankii Reina. I like.  :drool:

I'm also VERY MUCH looking forward to Takahashi sensei  :bow: and Gaki's infatuation of her.... and how are you going to fit the other girls into the story too? It should be interesting.. and dramatic as last time  :lol:

Thanks for making the trailer too - they're pretty awesome, and the way you handle all the clips and subtitles is very neat  :thumbsup
The character profiling you should have done for Kokoro no uta too, clever idea!

As for this first chapter - why am I not surprised that you made GakiKame good friends again  :lol:
I'll demand a GakiKame fic from you one day!!!!

Eri's first meeting with Reina =  :shocked:

 :rofl: at Reina mistaking our turtle for a 'pretty boy'... lol, Eri's voice should be a pretty dead giveaway, no? So girly  :wub:

But very interesting start so far. Does Reina really live around there? Or was she just trying to get Eri off her case? Can't wait to find out how the relationships are going to develop!  :heart:

200 YEN, the start of it all!
 :bow: :bow: :bow:

Thanks for creating this new story for us all to religiously follow!
Looking forward to the next update!
 :love:

Looks like the turtle is lovestruck at their first meeting :inlove: Maybe that's why she decides to play along and let Reina think she is a boy? Because she's (already) falling for the kitty, that if she founds out that Eri is actually a girl she's not sure how Reina would react? I thought that maybe Reina was really mean to Eri at their first meeting that Eri decided to play a joke on the kitty for revenge or something :nervous

Count me in for looking forward to Takahashi-sensei. Of the current Musumes, I can't think of anyone who would fit the role of a career woman better than Ai-chan. Must be the way she looks so fine in a suit :drool:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 2

   “So let me get this straight,” Risa said, narrowing her eyes.  “You meet this girl and you don’t know who she is, where she’s from, how old she is, why she gave you her money, but…”

   “She’s attractive,” Eri sighed.  “That might be too weak of a word, though.”

   Risa rolled her eyes as she crossed her legs and leaned in a little closer to her friend, who was sitting next to her.  The room was quite loud with all the chatting before class, along with idiotic guys trying to look cool by doing soccer ball tricks.  Eri had been telling her friend about the mysterious girl she had met the evening before.  Although she had described her with the most elaborate words possible, Risa wasn’t convinced.

   “Kameha, you just met her,” she said, narrowing her eyes.  “And from what you told me, it seems like she thinks you’re a boy.”

   “Yeah…”

   “And she flirted with you, while thinking you’re a boy.”

   “It wasn’t exactly flirting…”

   “She called you, ‘pretty boy’ and winked at you,” Risa rolled her eyes.  “That counts as flirting.”

   “Your point?” Eri grumbled.

   “Kameha, she obviously likes guys, not girls,” Risa explained.  “And you don’t know anything about her while she knows nothing about you, including your gender and your preferences for dating.  And you just met her; why are you so dazed about her?”

   “Because she was gorgeous!” Eri whispered, as a big smile appeared on her face.  “The moment her eyes met mine, something sparked!  I… I think I like her.”

   “But you don’t know who she is!” Risa growled back, thinking how ridiculous her friend was being.

   “I don’t… yet,” the turtle mumbled.  “I’m telling you, there’s something about her.  If I’m right, I’m sure we’re going to meet again.  It’s like fate—”

   “I’m not even going to bother with this anymore,” the bean sighed, turning back to face the front of the classroom.  “You’re helpless.  Do whatever you want.”

   “Thanks for the support, Risa-chan,” Eri grinned.

   As the turtle turned to the front of the room, the door slid open and the principal of Haro Kotogakko walked in.  He positioned himself in the middle of the room behind the podium and cleared his throat.  All the 2nd year students in the room skittered back to their own seats and stopped talking.

   “Good morning, students,” the principal greeted.  “I’m sure you are all aware that your homeroom and history teacher, Iida-sensei, retired last semester to focus on her family life.  So starting this semester, you will be in the care of a new homeroom teacher.  I trust that you will all show her the same respect that you showed Iida-sensei.”

   “Hai!” the students answered in unison. 

   “Then without further ado,” the principal continued, “I would like to introduce your new history teacher.  Come on in, sensei.”

   The classroom door opened once more as a pair of black heels stepped in.  All the students focused on the young woman who was now at the front of the room.  She had curly brown hair that was clipped back to keep out of her face.    She was wearing a black suit jacket with a matching skirt and a white collar shirt underneath.  Her smile was gentle as she scanned the room full of teenagers that she was now in charge of.  A quiet whistle came from one of the boys as a wave of whispers washed over the room.  Eri turned to her friend and also spoke in a low voice.

   “She’s really pretty, isn’t she?” she said.

   “She seems too young to be a teacher,” Risa answered back, frowning. 

   Eri just rolled her eyes at the sign of dissatisfaction from the bean.  Since Risa was an ideal honor student, she always looked for perfection.  It was one of her best qualities, yet her worst.

   “My name is Takahashi Ai,” the brown-haired teacher said in a friendly tone.  “Starting today, I will be your new homeroom teacher as well as being in charge of your history class.  I hope to get to know all of you individually as time passes. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.”

   “Onegaishiamsu!” the class chanted in unison.

   “There’s still a couple minutes left of homeroom,” the principal said, checking the clock.  “So I’ll leave these kids in your care, Takahashi-sensei.”

   “Arigatou gozaimasu, Kouchou-sensei,” the young teacher thanked.

   As the principal walked out of the room and closed the door behind him, silence filled the room again.  The new teacher walked around to the front of the podium and leaned on it.  She gave a friendly smile to the class; the students couldn’t help but smile a little back.

   “Since we’re going to be together for the rest of the school year,” she started, “I think it’s important that we all get to know each other.  It’ll take me a long time to get to know all of you, so let’s start with all of you getting to know me first.  So if any of you have questions for me, please ask them.”

   Silence continued on for a couple seconds.  Then, all at the same time, a series of questions started to shoot out from different parts of the room.  This teacher was pretty and she seemed nice.  The girls were interested while the guys were definitely more than interested.  Takahashi-sensei laughed as she held up her hands in front of herself.

   “Please, one at a time!” she yelled, grinning.  “We have a lot of homeroom sessions ahead of us.”

   “Sensei!” a girl from the back of the room called, standing up while raising her hand.  “Where are you from?”

   “I’m originally from Fukui,” the teacher answered.  “But I’ve been living in Tokyo for quite some time.”

   “Then do you speak with an accent?” a different girl asked.

   “I lost it already,” sensei answered, “and I hope to keep it that way.”

   “Sensei, how old are you?” a boy asked, followed by a series of hooting and hollering from his pack of guy friends who all wanted to know the same thing.

   “I’m 23 years old this year,” Takahashi-sensei replied, smiling.  A series of  “aw”s and “kawaii”s resonated in the room, allowing the young woman to laugh.

   “Sensei, aren’t you a little too young to teach?” Risa asked, narrowing her eyes.

   “Maybe I am,” the lady grinned.  “But that doesn’t matter as long as I have what it takes, right?”

   “Sensei, do you have a college degree?” Risa questioned again, still unconvinced.

   “Yes I do, as well as a teaching permit.”

   “Stop being uptight, Gaki-san,” one of the boys complained.  “You’re being rude to Sensei.”

   “I’m not being uptight   !” the bean yelled.  “It was just a question like everybody else’s.”

   “Iinchou is just being Iinchou,” a different girl giggled.  “Sensei, what’s your favorite food?”

   “Omelette rice is always good for me,” the teacher answered, deciding to pass off the small argument between her students with a smile.  “Now, I’m very sorry everyone, but the questions will have to stop here.  I still have some last minute papers to fill out for the principal.”

   “Bye, Sensei!” one of the guys called out with a grin.

   The new teacher scanned the room one more time with a friendly smile before walking out and closing the door.  The room went back into the hushed whispers; everybody was talking about the new teacher.  All the boys seemed to like her already, just by the fact that she was young, beautiful, and has a nice body.  Most of the girls seemed okay with her, since she seemed pretty nice.  But Risa was still doubtful, with her perfectionist instincts.  Suddenly, the boy that had complained to the bean before stood up.

   “Iinchou, you really have to loosen up,” the guys said.  “Do you hate Takahashi-sensei already?”

   “I never said I hated her,” Risa replied.  “But she is kind of young, isn’t she?”

   “That doesn’t matter,” the boy rolled his eyes.  “She must be here because she’s smart enough to teach, right?  You’re just jealous, Gaki-san.”

   “Yeah, you’re just jealous,” a different guy chimed in.

   “Just because you’re the class representative, it doesn’t give you the right to try and make Sensei look bad,” a different boy said.

   “Since when did I make her look bad?” Risa asked.

   “You’re always so eager to find flaws in people,” the first guy said.  “Just chill a little, will you?  That’s why no guy ever asks you out.”

   “Yeah, Iinchou can be cute too, if it wasn’t for your strict character,” the second boy cackled.

   “Who wants to be asked out by guys like you anyway?” Eri defended her friend, standing up. 

   “Aw~ that’s so cute, Kamei!” one of the guys cooed.  “You’re defending our class rep?  What a good turtle!”  The group of boys exploded into hollers and laughs while Eri gritted her teeth.

   “You guys are being stupid,” one of the girls groaned.  “Is there a Takahashi-sensei fan club already?”

   “Great idea, Konno!” one of the guys yelled.  “Hey guys, let’s make that club!”

   “You’re all idiots,” the girl called Konno grumbled.

   “Why does our class have to be filled with these boys while the other class gets the cute ones?” a different girl moaned.

   “Don’t mind them, Risa-chan,” Eri sighed.  “They’re all hopeless.”

   “I know that,” the bean grinned.  “That’s why nothing they ever say is enough to bring me down.”

   “Yeah, go Gaki-san!” one of the girls cheered.

   “Thanks, Makocchan,” Risa laughed.

   Amidst all the cheering— boys about Takahashi sensei while the girls went on about sticking together— the door slid open and someone stuck their head in.  Silence washed over the room again as all the attention went to the front of the classroom.

   “I forgot something,” the brown-haired teacher smiled.  “Who is the class representative here?”

   “Hai,” Risa answered, standing up.  “Niigaki Risa desu.”

   “Niigaki-san,” the woman continued, smiling.  “Would you mind staying after school today to do some extra work?  As the class representative, I mean.”

   “Of course,” the bean smiled back, completely hiding her irritation. “If it’s part of my job, I’d love to.”

   “Great,” the teacher answered.  “Teachers’ lounge, 3 o’clock sharp!”

   The door closed again as all the boys continued to stare at the place where the beautiful lady’s head had been.  Risa grumbled something to herself as she sank back into her seat.

   “Does this mean I’m going home alone today?” Eri whined.  “I thought we were going shopping together for a little while...”

   “Sorry, Kameha,” Risa mumbled.  “What can I say?  It seems like our sensei still can’t doing things by herself around here.  Why can’t she get one of her boy slaves to—”

   “That’s going a little overboard, Risa,” Eri cut her off, frowning.  “I don’t think she’s that bad.  We should get to know her a little better first.”

   “She’s obviously one of those teachers who try to sweet-talk all the male students!” Risa growled.  “I hate teachers like that!”

   “She doesn’t seem that way to me,” Eri shook her head.  “Don’t judge before you really know someone, Risa-chan.  That’s what you always say to me, remember?”

   “Yeah, yeah,” the bean sighed.  “I guess I’ll talk to her a little more before I decide whether I like her or not…”

Ai being a teacher is always interesting but I am having my mind wrapped around Eri being masculine but she is just an indication of short hair being a boy, although 5th gen represent!

Fuuuu epic TanaKame first meeting :lol: Not exactly to coolest way to meet though :lol: Looks like Reina had Eri hooked onto her. Not if only Reina hadn't dismissed Eri as one of the pretty boy :P

Hmm Risa sure is harsh to Ai despite their first meeting and her being the class rep :smhid I mean, having a pretty teacher is good for academic reasons, right? I mean, I would study hard to impress that cute teacher (especially one who looks like Ai :heart:)

(그랬구나...SarangAi님의 소설, 언제나 재미있게 잘 보고 있습니다 ^^ 렌엘추종자로서 렌엘중심의 소설이 특히나 더 반가웠네요 ㅎㅎ
다음 번에는 닼렌으로....안될까요? ㅎㅎ)

Uptight Gaki :smhid Not to mention rude. Questioning a new teacher's qualifications just because she looks too young to be a teacher? Tut tut. Gaki better pay for this big time :D
As for TanaKame....looks like the turtle is really hooked hehe. A bumpy road ahead for them, even just clarifying her correct gender would be quite an obstacle. But of course, the kitty would be hooked herself and it's not like she can resist the charms of the turtle anyway XD

Hmm my plan two try and comment after every chapter fail at the first hurdle :doh:  :lol:

Poor Eri getting mistaken for a boy XD I'm looking forward to more interaction between her and Reina in this fic!

Ai as a teacher? I didn't see that coming! It will be intresting to see how these two interact trough the fic, I wonder what Ai wants with Gaki in the staff room?  :wub:

Quick question, have you lower the age of some of the girls, Gaki, Eri etc to fit the being in School age, I assume you have but am just checking!

P.S.  Sayu/Jun again? I suppose you to like couple more sometimes when you write about them in a fic, Surely these two will hve a happier story this time around thou right?....right! :panic:

Chapter 3

   Eri carefully folded her uniform and placed it inside her messenger bag.  She closed her gym locker with a loud smash of metal hitting metal, but it didn’t scare anybody since the changing room was already loud with the sound of girls chatting after the excitement of gym class.  The turtle turned to her friend next to her, who was in the process of taking off her shirt.

   “I’m leaving then,” she said.  “Have fun helping Takahashi-sensei.”

   “Where do you think you’re going?” Risa asked, raising an eyebrow.

   “Um… home?” Eri answered, confused by the bean’s reaction.  “Gym class was our last period of the day, wasn’t it?”

   “Yeah, but aren’t you going to change?” Risa asked again, referring to the turtle’s white t-shirt and black sweatpants.  “You’re still wearing your gym uniform.”

   “I’m too lazy,” Eri mumbled, ruffling her short hair. “Since we’re not going shopping, I think I’ll just go home, take a shower, and then change.”

   “Actually, I have a favor to ask you, Eririn…” Risa said, smiling with big, expectant eyes.

   “Oh, don’t give me that look,” the turtle whined.  “You only call me Eririn when you want me to do something for you. I’m already kind of upset about you ditching me, you know.”

   “Please, please, please?” the bean continued to beg, bending her knees a little to look up at her friend with puppy-dog eyes.  “Just hear me out!”

   “… Fine, what do you want?” Eri grumbled.

   “The book that I’ve been telling you since last month!” Risa squealed, starting to jump up and down.  “I have it reserved at the bookstore and I was supposed to go pick it up today!  Could you do it for me, Eririn?”

   “What do I get in return?” Eri asked, crossing her arms across her chest.

   “I’ll help you with any homework for a week, a month, for as long as you want!” Risa offered, desperately staring at the turtle.

   “That’s actually not a bad offer,” Eri said, nodding her head.  It was true that she wasn’t doing so well in school since she always fell asleep… “Deal.  I’ll go buy it for you.”

   “Thank you so much, Eri!” Risa exclaimed, charging into the turtle to give her a hug.  But Eri stepped aside before she could be embraced.

   “You know you’re topless right now,” Eri said.  She then grinned and spoke in a teasing tone.  “Sorry, Risa-chan, but I don’t think of you that way.  Oh, I hope we can still stay friends even though I’ve rejected your love—”

   “You wish,” the bean grumbled, returning to her locker to snatch out the linen shirt of her uniform.  The turtle laughed as she waved to her friend and walked out of the locker room.

   As the final bell indicated the end of school, Eri skipped out the main entrance.  Nobody had come out as early as her, so the front field was still pretty peaceful.  The short-haired girl walked out through the gates and started to head towards the shopping district, where series of small stores were lined up in the streets.

   Eri continued to walk a couple blocks down until she reached the bookstore.  The welcoming voice of the store clerk rang out along with the chime of the bells hanging over the door.  She started to walk down the rows of shelves, looking for the right column to go down in. 

   She finally found the right shelf and started to walk down the row while searching through the chain of books.  When she didn’t see the right title the first time, Eri looked up to the upper shelves and walked down the row again.  She stopped at one point and let out a sharp breath of air as her shoulders slumped.

   It has to be all the way up there? She thought, biting her lips in frustration.  Risa-chan will be doing my homework for a year!

   With a sigh, Eri started to reach up towards the wanted book while standing on her tippy toes.  Still unable to quite reach, she tried to stretch her muscles a little more.  Her fingers managed to get a grip on the spine; but as she tried to pull it out, a couple other books on the side slid out with it.  Eri reached her left hand up as well to push the unwanted books back into the shelf while grabbing the novel she needed with her right hand. 

   I got it! The turtle thought to herself, smiling.  Now to just pull it out…

   At that moment, the book that was right in front of Eri’s face got pulled out from the other side by someone.  It was a girl with straight, light brown hair with a headband.  She had a cute face and cat-like eyes that scrutinized the turtle’s surprised expression.  Eri gasped.  The girl on the other side of the shelf blinked a couple times before opening her mouth a little.

   “Ara.”

   “You!” Eri yelled, recognizing the petit girl that she had met before at the convenience store.  “It’s really you— WOAH!”

   Her feet started to falter from shock as Eri lost control over her motions.  She tripped backwards as her right hand pulled out the book that she wanted along with a couple other heavy books in the same row.  Eri let out a yell as she fell on her bottom while the chain of books fell on her head.  She started to rub the back of her head that was in pain while looking down at the floor.  A final book fell down from the top shelf and opened up on her head like a hat.

   Before the turtle could reach up to remove the book, someone else took the weight away first.  Eri looked up to see the petit girl wearing a brown school uniform, crouching in front of her while holding the book that had attacked her head. 

   “Still clumsy, huh, pretty boy?” she grinned. 

   “It’s you!” Eri yelled.  She was unable to say anything else, much less think about anything else.  She could only be grateful that she didn’t change back into her school uniform after gym class. 

   “You said that already,” the girl laughed. 

   “You— and I— trying to— money!” the turtle mumbled, eliciting another laugh from the cute girl.  Ugh, I sound so stupid right now!  Get a grip, Eri!

   “Why don’t you clean up this mess first, before the store clerk comes?” the girl suggested, holding out the book in her hand.  “There’s a stool over there, so you can use that.”

   Why didn’t I think of the stool before? Eri thought, sighing.  I really look stupid now…

   Before she could do something else to come off as an idiot, the short-haired girl picked herself off the floor and retrieved the stool from the end of the shelf.  She brought it back and picked up a couple books to put them back in their original spots.  Reina started to stack the books in her arms so Eri could just take it from her hands without stepping down from the stool.  After the tedious chore, Eri put the stool back where it was and returned to face the petit girl.

   “Thanks for helping me,” she mumbled.

   “That’s the most proper manner you’ve shown me since we met, pretty boy,” the girl smirked.  “It’s a good thing the clerk didn’t show up.  See you; be careful from now on!”

   “W-wait!” Eri called, grabbing the short girl’s arm and spinning her around.  She wasn’t about to send her off without even knowing her name like last time.  “I… uh… still need to pay you back!”

   “It was just 200 yen,” the girl chuckled.  “You really don’t need to pay me back.”

   “If you don’t want me to pay you back,” Eri insisted, “then at least let me show you my gratitude some other way.”

   “… What do you have in mind?”

   “We could, uh… get some ice cream… or something.”

   The girl stared up at the fidgeting turtle and laughed softly.  She was quite amused by this boy; he looked like a real wussy but in a way, he seemed sweet.  She smiled as she nodded in approval to the invitation.

**  **  ** 

   Eri received the two vanilla cones from the ice cream stand man and walked back to the fountain where the petit girl was sitting at the edge.  They were in the middle of the park where there were a lot of student couples and elementary school kids playing tag and hide-and-seek.  There was a lady who was sitting on one of the benches, feeding pigeons.  The turtle handed one of the cones to the cute girl she had fallen for and sat down next to her.

   “Thanks,” the girl said, taking a lick of the soft ice cream. 

   “So, uh…” Eri hesitated, wondering how start up a conversation where she won’t make a fool out of herself.  “What’s your name?”

   “It’s proper manners to say your name first before asking the other’s,” the girl chuckled.

   “Oh… Sorry,” the short-haired girl said, feeling her cheeks warming up.  Great; she had already made a fool out of herself starting with the first sentence.  “I’m Kamei Eri.”

   “Eri?” the petit girl said, raising an eyebrow.  “Isn’t that a girl’s name?”

   “Oh!  I, uh… you see here…” Eri stuttered, trying to find a good excuse.  “See, my real name is, uh… Eriku!  Yeah, it’s Eriku!  My mom is from, uh… America!  So she gave me a foreign name.  But everyone calls me Eri.”

   “I see,” the girl nodded

   She started focusing her ice cream again while the turtle let out a sigh of relief.  Eri felt like she just lost ten years off her life.  Although she wanted to be honest with this girl, she was afraid that the revelation of her real gender may end everything right then and there.  It wasn’t something she was about to risk.

   “So, uh… what’s your name?” Eri asked carefully.

   “Tanaka Reina,” she smiled.  “You can just call me Reina.”

   “Reina…” Eri breathed, feeling extreme happiness just from knowing this girl’s name.  “So um, what school do you go to?”

   “Morning Gakuen.”

   “EHH?  Really?”

   “Is that something to be surprised about?” Reina asked, raising an eyebrow.

   “Well…” Eri hesitated, “I heard that school is filled with really smart and rich people…”

   “Is that really the image the public has of us?” the short girl questioned, intrigued by the idea.

   “Well… it’s quite a prestigious private school,” the turtle explained.  “And it’s all-girls too…”

   “Hm.  I guess so.” Reina took a lick of her ice cream, indifferent to everything she just heard.  “There’s really nothing too special about it though.”

   “I see…” Eri nodded, taking a bite out of the soft ice cream before it could melt onto her hand.  “So… how old are you?”

   “Seventeen.”

   “Me too!” Eri exclaimed happily.  “I’m seventeen too!”

   “Seventeen isn’t that exciting a number, pretty boy,” Reina laughed.

   “Oh, yeah, I know…” Eri mumbled, embarrassed by her overreaction.  “Um, by the way… are you going to keep on calling me pretty boy?”

   “You don’t like it?”

   “It’s not that I don’t like it… I mean, you can call me by my name too… But if you like pretty boy then you can call me that—”

   “I’ll switch around then, Eri,” Reina grinned, making the turtle blush at the sound of her name. 

   Before the turtle could ask more questions, the petit girl finished the last bite of her cone and stood up.  Eri quickly got up as well, not wanting to let her go this way.  She still wanted to know more about her; she still wanted to spend more time with her.

   “Um, Reina—”

   “Do you have a cell phone?” the short girl interrupted.

   “Um, yes—”

   “Let me see it.”

   Eri quickly threw the ice cream away in the garbage can a couple feet behind her and started to rummage through her messenger bag.  She unearthed her slide phone and handed it to the cat-like girl.  Reina opened it and pressed a couple keys before returning it to its owner.

   “Name and cell phone number,” she explained, as Eri opened her phone to examine the difference.  “But you’ll have to work a little harder for the address.”

   “Then it’s okay for me to call you?” Eri asked, her face brightening up.

   “That’s usually the reason for giving phone numbers, pretty boy,” Reina giggled.  “I have to go now.  See you around, Eri.”

   “Okay!” the turtle exclaimed, grinning from ear to ear.  “I’ll see you, Reina!”

   The long-haired girl started to walk away towards the park exit.  Eri stared at her back as she clutched her cell phone to her chest.  She had done it!  She knew her name, her school, her age… and even her phone number!  Eri squealed to herself as she slid her phone open and searched for Reina’s name.  She stared at the number with a goofy grin before gasping and breaking out of her happy bubble.

   She seemed to know the basic things about Reina… but Reina didn’t even know her gender yet.

i'm really starting to like reina's character... completely different from kokoro no uta, huh? XD

And Eri(ku) scores! Reina's number, that is XD

Oh boy, Eri seems to be digging a bigger hole for herself. One thing for sure, Reina is definitely not gonna be pleased when she finds out that she's been lead on to think that Eri is a pretty boy :lol: Then again, it's her fault for assuming so :P

“Sorry, Risa-chan, but I don’t think of you that way.  Oh, I hope we can still stay friends even though I’ve rejected your love—”
Woot! At least we don't have GakiKame any more than platonic here *hides from GakiKame shippers*

 Ah sorry missed the character profile bit  :doh:

Topless Risa, why would you dodge that, nice to see Eri makes fun of Risa sometimes aswell  :lol:

I'm liking Reina's character so far in this, she's obviously a bit of a troublemaker but not a problem child, it gives her charater a really good feel compared to Eri's nore nevous personality.

Teacher Ai/Student Gaki next chapter?.....

Also, I may start to do comment replies whenever i can instead of waiting until I have an update.  So not every post by me will be an update so make sure to check the title of the thread XD

That being said... let's move on! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 4

   The class representative stared at the door that led into the staff lounge.  She really didn’t want to go in.  It wasn’t the fact that all the teachers would ask her why she was in there; almost all the teachers already knew her anyway.  After all, she was the model student of Haro Kotogakko. 

   No, it wasn’t because of the awkwardness.  It was just pure irritation; Risa didn’t want to sacrifice her time to help a newbie teacher who seemed to think the easy way out in life was to make everyone think she’s nice and pretty.  It kind of pissed her off, somehow. 

   She sighed as her shoulders slumped.  Maybe Eri was right, though; maybe she should get to know this teacher a little better before judging.  She knew it was a bad habit of hers to look for perfection; after all, nobody in the world was perfect, not even herself.

   Risa straightened her back and fixed her uniform to look like a proper student.  She then reached for the handle and slid the door open.

   “Shitsureishimasu— GAH!”

   As she looked up, the bean almost bumped into the brown-haired lady who had asked for her help.  There was a yellow portfolio in her hand; her expression was that of shock, but then it relaxed into a relieved smile.  There was a group of male teacher behind her who all recognized Risa and started to grumble.  What was going on here?

   “Niigaki-san, you’re here!” Takahashi-sensei exclaimed, grabbing the Iinchou’s arm in relief. 

   “Um, didn’t you ask me to?” Risa questioned, raising an eyebrow.

   “Yes, and I’m so glad you’re here,” the teacher said.  Her eyes flickered to the side as if to check if there were still people behind her.  She then turned around to face the male teachers with a smile.  “Thank you everyone, but now that my class rep is here, I must go.”

   “Are you sure you don’t want one of us to help you, Takahashi-sensei?” the gym teacher asked, grinning. 

   “We can even give you a tour of the school,” another teacher offered, smiling.

   “No, no, it’s fine,” Takahashi-sensei laughed nervously.  She put an arm around the bean, who raised an eyebrow as she stared at the hand on her right shoulder.  “My student here will do all that for me.”

   “I am?” Risa asked.

   “Takahashi-sensei, we shouldn’t hold students back after school to do chores for us like this,” one of the male teachers said. “Niigaki, shouldn’t you be getting somewhere?  Maybe an after-school tutoring or something?”

   Risa quickly realized that her answer may affect her direct future.  She started to get a strong urge to just answer, “yes” and leave.  Maybe she could even catch up to Eri and go shopping like they originally planned to…

   “Oh, Niigaki-san, did you have somewhere you need to go to?” the young teacher asked.  She turned a little, angling herself to face her student while the other male teachers couldn’t see her expression.  She opened her eyes wide in a pleading way while mouthing, “onegai”.  She obviously needed Risa with her to fend off these male teachers. 

   The bean frowned.  Doesn’t this lady like all the attention?  Why doesn’t she go hang out with the gym teacher and his male crew?  But it was understandable that some of these male teachers could be kind of creepy, considering they were desperate singles.  And with a new beauty in the staff like Takahashi Ai… this probably seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime chance to them.  Too bad Takahashi-sensei is already freaked out by them.

   “No, I don’t have any plans today,” Risa sighed, finally picking the angel side of her mind.  She really wanted to leave but she did feel kind of sorry for her teacher.  If she left right now, she felt like this would bother her for the rest of the week.

   “Then I guess there’s no problem,” Takahashi-sensei said brightly, turning to face the grumbling male teachers.  “Now if you’ll excuse us…”

   The young woman nudged her student out of the staff lounge and quickly followed behind.  She closed the door and briskly walked down the hall as Risa chased after her.

   “Where’s the copying room, Niigaki-san?” the teacher asked hurriedly.

   “Um… turn right here.”

   Both females turned the corner and entered the small room with walls that were lined up with copying machines.  The teacher dropped her portfolio on one of the machines and exhaled in relief.

   “Thank you so much, Niigaki-san,” she said, grinning.  “I thought I would never get out of there!”

   “They’re not monsters or anything,” Risa grumbled back.  “You could’ve let them help you.”

   “Not when they’re looking for something more than friendship,” Sensei smiled sadly.  “This sort of thing has happened a couple times.”

   “Really,” Risa replied, uninterested.  She just practically announced that she’s popular among males!  I knew her character wasn’t all that innocent!

   “I’m really sorry for keeping you, Niigaki-san,” the teacher continued.  “If you actually do have plans after school, you’re free to leave…”

   “It’s fine,” the bean snapped back.  It was too late anyway; Eri probably already got the book for her and was heading home.  “Let’s just do whatever you need do and get it over with.”

   “Oh.  Um… okay,” Ai said, slightly taken back by her student’s sharp attitude.

   She took out a couple sheets of paper from the yellow portfolio.  She instructed that she needed about 50 copies of each worksheet.  Risa snatched the first sheet from her hand and placed it inside the copying machine.  She then closed the cover, inserted the right number, and pressed start.  As the machine started to do its job, Risa leaned back while Ai stood next to her.

   “Niigaki-san, what do your friends call you?” the teacher suddenly asked.

   “Lots of things,” Risa sighed.  “Some call me, ‘Niigaki’, others call me, ‘Iinchou’ or ‘Gaki-san’— that’s the most common.  The closer friends call me by my given name.”

   “Then is it okay for me to call you, ‘Gaki-san’?” the young lady asked carefully.

   “Well I’m not going to tell you, ‘no’,” Risa shot back.  “You’re my teacher.”

   “But if you dislike it, then I won’t call you that.”

   “It’s fine, you can call me whatever.”

   The short conversation came to a stop.  The whirring of the copying machine soon died down with it.  Risa took the second sheet from Ai’s hand and placed it inside the machine.  She closed the cover and started the process all over again.  Silence overtook the room again, before Ai started talk once more.

   “Gaki-san…” she said slowly, “you don’t like me very much, do you?”

   “Why would you say that?”

   “It’s quite obvious, if I do say so myself,” Ai chuckled.  “But it’s okay, you don’t have to like me.  But I wish you wouldn’t hate me, at least… does that make sense?”

   Risa bit down on her bottom lip.  This teacher just seemed so… innocent.  Was she really beautiful inside and out?  Was that even possible?  Maybe she had misjudged this lady…

   “It’s not you,” the bean said before she could rethink her words.  “It’s just… it’s me.”  Oh shit, that almost sounded like a break-up line…

   “You?”

   “I’m just really picky, Sensei,” Risa explained.  “A perfectionist, if you will.  It’s a bad characteristic.  But I know you’re not a bad person, Sensei.  I guess I just overanalyzed you at first.  Gomenasai.”

   “Oh, it’s perfectly fine,” the woman laughed softly.  “I’m glad it wasn’t something that I did, Gaki-san.  I was kind of worried how my students would think of me and it seemed as though I already had a student who hates me from the first day…”

   “I don’t hate you!” Risa yelled out unconsciously.  “I mean… ‘hate’ is a strong word.  I guess… I just don’t know you yet.”

   “Well, I hope to get to know you better, Gaki-san,” Ai smiled. 

   Risa stared at the teacher’s friendly face for a while, before realizing what she was doing and looking away.  Her smile was… mesmerizing, in a way.  Her perfect white teeth matched her friendly and gentle gaze perfectly.  She really was beautiful…

   Wait, what the hell am I thinking right now? Risa thought, shaking her head.  I still don’t know Takahashi-sensei that well yet!  I won’t judge her before I really get to know her, whether it be in a good way or a bad way!

   For the rest of the time in the room, the teacher and the student photocopied all of the worksheets and stacked them in neat piles.  Risa reached for the papers but Ai stopped her.

   “You’ve done enough work today, Gaki-san,” she smiled.  “I can handle it from here.”

   “But what about the gym teacher and the other teachers in the lounge?” Risa asked.  “What if they try to hold you back again?”  Wait a minute, what do I care anyway?

   “Thank you for worrying, Gaki-san,” the teacher laughed.  “But it’ll be fine.  They’re still my colleagues; I guess I’ll have to get used to them.”

   “… Okay,” Risa mumbled. 

   She slung her backpack that she had placed on the floor before over her shoulders.  Ai watched her leave and waved.  She then started to stack the separate piles into one, when the bean stuck her head in the room again.

   “Oh, and Sensei!”

   “Yes?” Ai answered, looking up.

   “… If you need any help around the school again…” the iinchou mumbled, keeping her gaze at the floor, “like directions or just assistance… you can ask me.”

   The teacher blinked a couple times at the student that she thought hated her.  She then smiled gratefully and nodded.  “Arigatou, Gaki-san.”

   Risa also nodded, still refusing to meet eyes with her sensei, and disappeared.  Ai looked at the empty doorway for a while, and then laughed to herself.

   What a sweet girl...

:yep: I'm Korean. I used to only read Korean fan fics, but with supply drying up among Korean fan fic writers I drifted into English fan fics :nervous
It's interesting to read an English fic written by a Korean writer, I must say :lol:


Eri Eri Eri. She's getting deeper and deeper into this hole she's digging herself into. Part of it is Reina's fault for making the assumption that Eri is a pretty 'boy', but at the same time it's cute to see the turtle all flustered and in love :inlove: I hope Reina is understanding. I'm sure she won't be able to resist Eri anyway XD


As for TakaGaki. They're not my favourite pairing or anywhere near the top of my list, but I'm a sucker for student-teacher romances in fiction. Of course in real life it would be much more complicated to have a student-teacher relationship, but the delicate balance between a young, slightly immature student and the older, mature teacher is what gets me, I guess. Or the clear young-and-old dynamic between student and teacher. I read one with RenAi written in a student-teacher relationship, which is what got me into that pairing, now always fighting with TanaKame for my favourite pairing, which seems to sway one way depending on my mood :lol:
Normally I wouldn't care much for TakaGaki, but just because they're written in a student-teacher relationship I'd be interested to see how they work their way through their feelings.

Hiya. Sorry that I have not been commenting in a while, I've been busy with school. :depressed:
Anyways, getting on with the comments. I really like how this story is going as of far.
Reina's character is really different from Kokoro no Uta, but not in a bad way. :whistle:
Poor Eri though; the girl she likes doesn't even know her real gender. But that's what makes the story interesting
Hm...Risa's perfectionist character seems rather interesting. I can't put my finger about why it is as of far.
I like Ai's character as the teacher. She suits the role very well.

Please update soon.

Here is the next chapter~ I hope you enjoy :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 5

   The streetlights flickered on and off as the petit girl walked down her street.  It wasn’t completely dark yet; the sun was setting in the horizon, indicating dinner time.  Reina was feeling hungry, but also lazy to cook.  Maybe she’ll have to settle on another instant ramen…

   Concentrating solely on dinner, the cat-like girl walked up the steps to her white house and inserted the key into the door.  She then twisted her wrist but the lock didn’t turn with it.  Her eyebrows rose up in confusion as she cocked her head to the side.  Was the key stuck?  Reina pulled out her key out and tried the door.  The brass handle turned easily in her hand.  The key was stuck; the lock hadn’t opened because it was already opened.

    Reina quickly slipped her hands off the door handle and took a step back.  She was absolutely sure that she locked the house this morning when she left for school; yet the door handle had turned easily as though it was oiled.  Had she remembered wrong?

   No, she definitely locked the door.  So why was it now open?  Had someone broken in?  Perhaps someone who had a bone to pick with her because of something she did in the past, when she was still the leader of her gang?  Definitely a possibility…

   Deciding to face whoever the intruder was, Reina took a deep breath and opened the door.  She took off her shoes and silently placed her backpack down on the floor.  None of the lights in the hallway was on; but when she turned the corner, she could see the light from the kitchen seeping through the sliding doors with dull glass.  Someone was inside.

   Reina slowly crept up to the door and tried to see who was inside through the distorted glass, without avail.  How dare anyone in their right mind break into her home?  If they think they can top her, the legend Tanaka Reina in any way, they were wrong. 

   Before she could open the kitchen door to reveal the trespasser, Reina felt a presence behind her.  She quickly whirled around and did a roundhouse kick, letting out a yell in the process.  Her ankles were grabbed by someone in the darkness.

   “Woah!” the person yelled.  “Easy there, cool-cat.”

   Reina immediately recognized the person’s voice as her legs were dropped back to the floor.  She scoffed as the dim light from the kitchen started to reveal the person’s face.  It was a girl, much taller than herself, wearing a light orange sweatshirt.  Her hair was braided a little on one side, pulled towards the back of her head to reveal a large earring shaped like a butterfly.  The rest of her smooth black hair traveled down below to her chest.

   “Junjun?” Reina shrilled.  “What the hell are you doing in my house?”

   “Hey, can’t you start by greeting someone with a, ‘hello’?  Maybe a, ‘how are you’?” the panda complained, fixing her bangs.

   “You’re trespassing on Tanaka property right now,” Reina growled.  “I can sue you for that.  How did you get in anyway?  I thought I removed the spare key under the flower pot.”

   “Never underestimate me, Reina,” Junjun grinned.  “A couple paper clips are enough for me to handle your door.  Besides, it wasn’t my idea to come here.  I was just tagging along with them.” 

    She pointed a finger behind the petit girl.  Before Reina could turn around, she jumped with a start as a loud voice rang into her ears.

    “KONBANWA, TANAKA-SENPAI!”

    Reina whirled around to see her kouhai who had come out from the kitchen.  Her big smile seemed to brighten up the entire room. 

    “Mittsi?” the petit girl shrilled again.  “Wait a minute… if you’re here, that means—“

    “NI HAO!” an equally loud voice greeted from behind the cute kouhai.  A girl with short brown hair popped out from the kitchen.  “How was your day, Senpai?”

    “It was going wonderfully until I found out that three yankiis broke into my house!” Reina said sarcastically while smiling.

    “Aw, don’t be like that, Reina,” Junjun laughed.  “These two just wanted to come and make some dinner for you.  You are their aspiration, after all.”

    “That’s right, Senpai!” Aika grinned.  “Linlin and I made a nice hot meal for you!  I think you’ll enjoy it!”

    That’s when Reina finally noticed that her underclassmen were wearing matching aprons, pink and yellow.  Even their slippers were matching as well as the chain necklaces that hung around their necks.  These two were really getting into this couple thing.  Ever since they realized their mutual feelings for each other, Aika and Linlin were inseparable.  Reina hadn’t seen them do more than kissing on each other’s cheeks, but they still seemed pretty sincere about each other.  How pure, considering they were both gang members. 

    But that was what also made them frightening, in a way.  At first glance, they seemed completely harmless.  But if anybody crossed them, they would soon see that they were not to mess with.  It was a good trait, somehow.  At first, nobody had thought that Aika would be so agile and quick while Linlin would be so skilled in handling knives.  But as soon as their talents were recognized, Reina had accepted them into her gang.  But that was a long time ago…

    “So, how about it?” Junjun offered.  “Go up and change; come have some dinner.  We can talk after.”

    “I still didn’t forgive you for breaking into my home,” Reina reminded.

    “I can live without your forgiveness,” Junjun said nonchalantly, grinning. 

    The panda walked past the kitty and entered the kitchen.  Reina sighed and smiled.  Junjun would never change; she was always such a free person, and always will be.  It seemed as though she had no worries at all.

**  **  ** 

   “I got to say,” Reina sighed contently, “that was a pretty good meal.”

   “Of course it was a good meal,” Aika grinned.  “My Lin is such a good cook~”

   “I could only make it so well because you were helping, Aika~” Linlin cooed back.

   “Oh, put a cork in it,” Reina grumbled, her character reverting in less than a second.

   “It sure beat instant ramen, though,” Junjun laughed.

   “I won’t argue with that…” Reina mumbled under her breath, making all three girls laugh out.

   “Well then, I’ll get started on the dishes,” Linlin announced, getting up from her chair.

   “I’ll help,” Aika said, happily jumping up after her girlfriend.  “Two is better than one, right?”

   “Yup, especially us two together,” Linlin smiled.

   “I think I need some fresh air,” Reina groaned, making a face.  She shot up from her seat and stomped towards the kitchen door that led out into a small patio.

   “Hey, keep the lovebird moment to a minimum, will ya?” Junjun warned her two sidekicks.  As Aika and Linlin just giggled and walked towards the sink, the panda followed her friend outside and closed the door.

   Reina sank down into a crouching position and took in the fresh air; she wasn’t afraid to be in such a position, now that she was out of her school uniform.  She was wearing a dark purple t-shirt with black sweatpants instead.  Her long brown hair still hung straight down her back.  Junjun sat down all the way on the patio and started to rummage through her sweatshirt pocket.  She pulled out a small white box and flipped open the cover.  She held it out to the petit girl.

   “Want some?” she offered. 

   Reina turned to look at the thing that was presented to her, and glared at the panda.

   “You’re really not helping me quit, you know,” she grumbled.  But she pulled out a cigarette anyway and put it in her mouth.  “Why can’t you just offer me gum for once?”

   “You know I only keep gum with me in school,” Junjun grinned, as she lit Reina’s cigarette for her.  She shoved a cigarette of her own in her mouth and lit it as well.  She breathed in a little and then breathed out the smoke. “The gum is only backup in case it seems too obvious that I’ll get caught smoking.”

   “The teachers wouldn’t do anything to you anyway, even if you get caught,” Reina shot back.  “You’re one of the top 10 students in the school; they wouldn’t dare touch you.  You make them look good.”

   “True that,” Junjun laughed.  “The benefit of studying really is amazing, isn’t it?”

   “I don’t even understand how you find the time to study, considering the way you party around town every night,” Reina said, narrowing her eyes. 

   “It’s called natural talent,” the panda joked, tapping her forehead with her index finger.  “I was born a genius.”

   “Yeah, sure,” Reina chuckled.

   For a moment, the two girls sat and smoked in silence.  Reina sighed deeply, and then turned to look at her friend.

   “Let me ask you a question, Jun.”

   “Hm?”

   “Why do you keep on coming to my house?” Reina asked.  “I quit the gang.  None of you girls have any more business here.”

   “You don’t like it when we come?”

   “It’s not the matter of liking it or not; I just find it peculiar.  You know the first time you guys broke in, I thought you came to give me the punishment that I never got for quitting the gang.”

   “You mean beating you up half-dead?” Junjun laughed softly.

   “Yeah, that,” Reina said flatly.  “When I told you guys I was quitting my yankii life, none of you girls thought to get revenge on me the way gangs usually do.  Why?”

   “Well, you were our leader, Reina,” Junjun said matter-of-factly.  “We couldn’t exactly do anything to you, could we?”

   “But I made you leader before I quit.  You could’ve thrown a couple punches at me.”

   Junjun stared at the ex-yankii’s unwavering eyes.  She then sighed, and twisted the cigarette onto the wooden board of the patio beneath her feet. 

   “You want to know why we keep coming here?” she asked.  Reina stayed silent and waited.  “It’s not because you’re our ex-leader, or because you quit the gang.  It’s because you’re our friend.  It’s because we like you and we like hanging out with you.  That has nothing to do with being a delinquent or not.”

   “… You never cease to amuse me, Jun,” Reina laughed, twisting her own cigarette onto the patio.  “You know, most gang leaders aren’t as soft and happy as you.  You’re definitely something out of the traditional norm.”

   “Oh, you know I can be mean too,” the panda smirked.  “I have to have some bad in me, for you to have accepted me into the group in the first place.  The night you left the group… I didn’t punish you.  But I kind of took it out on other gangs, though.  I was pretty pissed about you quitting, you know.”

   “How many groups did you get?”

   “I didn’t keep track.  Aika and Linlin should know though; they checked the hospital records.”

   “Am I supposed to be happy or sad about that?” Reina asked, raising an eyebrow.

   “They were all hardcore gangs anyway,” Junjun reassured.  “The police was looking for them.  We did the job for them and got out of the scene.”

   “Again, not the traditional norm,” Reina laughed.

   “Hey, let’s stop talking about me,” Junjun complained.  “I have something I want to ask you too.”

   “Shoot.”

   “You have a new boyfriend.”

   “… That’s not a question.”  Reina glared sideways at her Chinese friend, who smirked.

   “We saw you at the park with him today,” Junjun explained.  “He seemed pretty cute.  But I was kind of surprised, because he wasn’t your type at all.  You know, at first glance, I thought he was a girl.”

   “First of all, he’s not my boyfriend,” Reina said.  “And second of all, you’re right.  He’s not my type at all; too pretty, and much too soft.”

   “It seemed like you were having a good time flirting with him, though.”

   “There’s something about him,” the ex-yankii murmured.  “Something that’s different from other boys… but I can’t figure out what it is.  So for now, I’m just keeping close.  I gave him my number.  I guess you can say I’m just playing.”

   “That’s pretty devious,” Junjun whistled.  “Poor guy.”

   “Hey, I didn’t mean ‘playing’ in that sense,” Reina growled.  “I’m saying I’m not that serious about him yet.  But… he’s sweet.  There’s something that attracts me to him.  And I want to find out what it is.”

   “Does he know… about your past?”

   “We only met yesterday, Jun,” the smaller girl said, rolling her eyes.  “That’s not something I tell anyone.”

   “Well, if he seems so special…” Junjun mumbled.  She stretched as she slowly got up to her feet and picked up her cigarette.  “You can do what you want, Reina.  But if he proves to be more than what meets the eye, I think I might want to meet him and see for myself what’s so different about him.”

   “I’ll let you know if we ever get that close,” Reina grinned, also getting up.

   “Ah~ I’m tired!” Junjun yelled, yawning.  “Do you mind if we sleep over tonight?”

   “As long as you guys make breakfast tomorrow morning,” the ex-yankii smiled.  “Or I have to depend on ramen again.”

   “You know, for a rich girl, you don’t exactly live an extravagant life,” the panda groaned.

   “That’s because I’m independent,” Reina sighed.  “Papa pays for all the raw material, but I still have to do my own share of the work to make a living.”

   “… You still call him, ‘Papa’, huh?” Junjun said quietly, smiling a little.

   “… ‘Father’ never sounds right,” Reina whispered.

   “I think it’s a good thing,” the panda comforted.  “It’s something that still connects you two, somehow.”

   “Too bad he doesn’t think to connect us by using the phone,” Reina laughed dryly.

   “He hasn’t forgotten you; trust me,” Junjun whispered.  She then turned around and yelled loudly into the house as she opened the door.  “Hey, Mittsi and Rinko!  We can sleep over if you guys make breakfast tomorrow~!”

   “Deal!  Anything for senpai!” Aika chirped happily from the sink.

   “Anything my girl is okay with, I’m okay with,” Linlin said, receiving a loving gaze from her lover.

   “You guys are using the farthest room from my bedroom,” Reina grumbled as she crossed over the threshold. 

   As she discarded her cigarette into the ashtray on the kitchen table, the petit girl felt the vibration of her phone in her pocket.  She took it out and flipped it open.  There was a new text message.

Today was a lot of fun!
I hope we can hang out again soon~
Oyasumi ^__^
~Eri

   A gentle smile started to spread on Reina’s lips as she read the text message.  It was only a couple words, but it somehow made her feel much warmer inside. 

   “Something is definitely different about this guy…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope that was interesting enough to bring you guys back in... XD
There was a lot of other characters/personalities revealed  :twothumbs

Reina used to be a gang leader, changed herself into a working girl and not being spoiled from the father as something must have happened between them, although Jun seems to be looking up to Reina still yet.  I have the wild idea that Eri might change Reina all around that she goes 180 and because of that she finds her confidence in herself through Reina, however its your story so keep it up :thumbsup

NO. They smoke?? :shocked: Haha..I thought Reina was different in this fic, but she's still pretty much the same with her Yankii ways. :grin:

Eri(ku) is different than other guys because (s)he is a girl..? :lol:

If Reina is determined to find out what it is that attracts her to Eri, I think she'll be able to accept the fact that Eri(ku) is a girl. :mon determined:

Interesting chappie. Now we know Reina used to be miss gang leader... 8)2 I thought Eri would be the strong character in this one. :roll:

Reina is an Ex Yankii then :roll: She handed her power over to Jun, who seems to be like the nicest gang member ever, I wonder if it is just that Jun is freinds with Reina, I wonder if Jun would like her and Reina to be more..... Linka afr funny though, they make a good pair :lol:

Reina thinks there's something different about Eri, well she's not wrong is she :P Jun mentioned that she looked like a girl, I wonder if she is suspicious even if Reina isn't.

Reina seemed really pleased to get the message from Eri, is she falling for ManEri :doh:

One Question however, where is Sayu??? :?

@kurosawa87: the future really revolves around what reina's problem is, so we'll see :)

@kano-chan: technically, she's not a yankii anymore but she can't get over old habits yet :P

@kawaii beam: lol LinKa... scary, huh? XD

@Haruka: theres's always something about reina :D

@LovelyGaki: Kamei is... tomboy maybe? XD

@Tami_Ai: lol something so different that reina never would've thought of XD

@rnmdnwierd: Strange characters, yet they should be appealing, somehow :lol:

@oddball: oh Jun is totally chill here :D and Sayu will come out in Ch. 7, which is the update after this one :)

@fallenxangel: IT's not reina if she's not badass 8)

@kRisZ: LOL your fav line is my fav line XD

@Michi.Pinku: yup, Reina quit being a yankii for reasons to be revealed later on, and passed the baton to jun :) and SWEETNESS. happy 100th post!!!  :otomerika: :yossi: :cow: XD


here's a short update, but maybe it'll give you guys something to look forward to... :twothumbs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 6

   Eri placed her chin on the wooden desk and stretched her arms out in front of her.  She yawned loudly, tired for no reason at all, which caused her friend next to her to turn and glower.  Eri grumbled something incoherent under her breath; Risa could be too much of an honor student sometimes.  Whenever the turtle showed signs of going to sleep in the middle of class, the representative would send a deadly glare towards her direction. 

   Deciding to follow the bean’s will, Eri tried to focus on the front of the classroom, where Takahashi-sensei was talking about Shoguns.  The board was filled with notes that should have been written down a long time ago.  The turtle just decided that she would copy Risa’s notes later.  After, she did owe her for picking up the book the other day.

   That brought a different thought to mind, about how Eri’s boring trip to the bookstore had ended up becoming one of the happiest moments in her life.  Ever since yesterday, she had constantly stared at her cell phone screen, reading the name and the phone number of the girl she fell for over and over again.  Just thinking about her made the turtle’s cheeks turn pink in bliss.

   Eri didn’t feel like sleeping so much anymore.  Instead, she silently took out her cell phone from the pocket that was sewn in on the inside of her skirt. She placed it on her lap and eyed her best friend; Iinchou was completely submerged in Takahashi-sensei’s lesson, despite her doubts in the woman’s teaching skills when they first met.  Eri guessed that Risa was a bit more accepting of their new teacher now. 

   Confirming that the bean was off her case, the turtle slid her phone open and operated it to send a new text message.  She typed as fast as she could while looking up occasionally at the front of the room, so as not to get caught.

Hi, Reina!
Are you in class right now?
~Eri ^__^

   She quickly pressed the send button and picked up her pencil to act as though she had been taking notes all along.  After a couple seconds, her phone vibrated for a short moment on her lap.  Eri dropped her pencil and immediately and checked the returned message.

Aren’t you in school too?
Shame on you for texting during class.
~Reina

   Eri’s eyes popped wide open as she realized her mistake.  Did she just make a fool out of herself again?  Why did she keep doing this…?  Biting her lips, she started to press the keypad furiously in order to make amends.

I’m really sorry for bothering you ^^;;
I’ll stop texting… >.<;;
~Eri

   As she closed her cell phone, Risa hissed from beside her, glaring back and forth from the turtle’s face to her cell phone.  She mouthed something along the lines of, “put it away”.  Eri rolled her eyes and just nodded her off.  Risa glared for a couple more seconds before turning to the board again.  As Eri picked up her pencil once more, the phone vibrated; she immediately dropped the writing utensil.

I was jk, pretty boy. I wasn’t serious ^^
Don’t be so over-sensitive =)
~Reina

   As her eyes scanned the tiny screen, Eri let out a soft sigh of relief.  So Reina wasn’t mad or anything; she was probably smirking the way she usually does right now, rolling her cat-like eyes while revealing her cute teeth…

   Deciding that it was safe to take a more casual tone, Eri immediately sent a reply.

But I’m so bored right now, Reinaaaa T^T
I want school to end now!
~Eri ^__^

   This time, Eri didn’t even bother picking up her pencil again.  She just stared at her cell phone, waiting for the vibration to come.  In no less than a minute, a return message was received.

I’m bored too -_-
I think I’m too used to you already. You’re too entertaining ;]
When you’re not with me, it gets boring ^^
~Reina

   Eri couldn’t help but smile goofily as she read the message.  She thought she was entertaining!  She enjoys her company!  Not missing another second, the turtle started to text back at high-speed.

Are you free after school?
Maybe we can meet somewhere =D
~Eri ^__^

   Eri started to stare at the screen again, starting to bounce her legs up and down in excitement.  As she tried to stop her arms from trembling with joy, the turtle continued to grin in a stupid way.  The phone soon vibrated again and Eri slid it open to check the message.  But then, someone cleared their throat loudly near her.  Eri looked up as she gulped, making eye contact with the smiling Takahashi-sensei.

   “I know I’m new here, but I still know the rule about cell phones, Kamei-san,” the teacher said sweetly as some of the students started to giggle.  “What happens when you text in class?”

   “… Sensei is supposed to take it…” Eri squeaked.  Risa mouthed, “I told you” as she rolled her eyes.

   “Very good, Kamei-san!  So you are informed of the rule!” Sensei exclaimed, clapping her hands together.  More giggles elicited from the class. 

   “But Takahashi-sensei is nicer than Iida-sensei, so she’ll just give me a warning and let me off the hook… maybe?” Eri tried, smiling angelically at her history teacher.

   “… One day, I’ll develop immunity against that smile, Kamei-san,” Sensei grinned, pointing her finger at the turtle.  “But until then, you can keep your cell phone.  No more texting!”

   “Arigatou gozaimasu, Sensei~” Eri chirped, beaming.

   As the teacher marched back up to the front of the room and continued her lesson, Eri looked down at her cell phone.  It vibrated again and the pop-up screen indicated that there were two new messages.  Eri checked both.

Is it ice cream again? XD
~Reina

lol You got caught, didn’t you?
You’re not replying as fast as you’ve been doing so far.
~Reina

   Eri sighed as she texted back in the shortest way possible.

Yes… =__=
~Eri

   The turtle then picked up her pencil in earnest as she slowly started to copy down the overdue notes on the board.  After a couple seconds, her phone vibrated again.  Eri eyed her teacher and then her surroundings, including her goody-goody class representative, and slid her phone open.

Café Buono
Number 8, 32nd Street
Meet me at 4.
~Reina

   Eri gasped as her lips spread into a big smile.  She yelled with joy inside her head while trying to keep her squeals of excitement to a minimum.  She wanted to see her again!  She had willingly accepted Eri’s proposal to meet again!  And since they were to meet at 4 o’clock, Eri had time to go back home and change into something more presentable…

   But she would have to wear boy’s clothes, something simple and baggy but still not disrespectful.  She actually had plenty of those clothes, since she always liked big and loose outfits better than the tight and elaborate ones.  It was a simple fact that they were just more comfortable.

   Although she was excited for this meeting— or maybe she could call it a date— Eri started to wonder how long she would be able to keep up this pretense of being a foreign guy.  She had to tell Reina her real gender someday along with her preference in love…  But would the kitty girl deny her after all is revealed?

   Eri exhaled deeply as she put her cell phone away.  For now, she would keep up her act.  Losing Reina by coming clean too soon wasn’t something she was about to risk.  She would wait a little longer, until they get to know each other even better, and then rethink her confession.

I'm actually still brainstorming what they're gonna do... so i can't make any promises XD

Can't wait for the TanaKame date...at Cafe Buono hmm...


On serious note, Ai as a teacher is sooooooo hot :drool:

@kRisZ: yes, at this point, Eri can handle any of Reina's secrets.... but can reina handle the turtle's?  8)

@kano-chan: I'm actually wondering what they're doing on their date too XD

@kurosawa87: perhaps more characters, not sure yet :nervous

@fallenxangel: I didn't say they can all concentrate.. it's just risa who's trying to be unaffected by takahashisensei's hawtness :inlove:

@oddball: yup, eri has to dress up like a guy XD

@Fushigidane: lol Aichan's just being a teacher :D

@rndmnwierd: I got something for Sayu XD

@badsaints: SHE IS isn't she??? I'm so glad i made her the teacher :lol:


sorry guys, this is a comment reply, not an update :nervous
I always get so many comments so it usually takes me over half an hour to update a story, with the formatting an all.... so i just did replies as soon as i woke up XD
On the bright side, I don't have classes for the next two days plus the weekends, so i'm gonna try to get the story going. even though I can't promise anything :twothumbs

And instead of an update, i thought I might post some picture :cow:


HARO KOTOGAKKO UNIFORM (I know it's berryz koubou, but this is what i imagine them wearing) XD

I'm actually kinda like having to show pictures... it gives you a better image :D

Oh and something else I wanted to say.

I feel like this story isn't as well-written as Kokoro no Uta.  I'm really sorry, but it can't be helped.  Classes have started, summer is over... all self-explanatory, right? :nervous

I'm still going to try to make it as interesting as possible, but Chigatte mo Iin da yo! probably won't top Kokoro no Uta  :sweatdrop:

But I hope the story is till good enough to entertain you all~ :P

I really like the story too...

Maybe it has to be more elaborated cause it's imply a teacher - student relationship
And a gender-bender... so it has to be a little more complex o_O

And now you're not on vacation so... We can understand that =3

I appreciate that you can continue giving us storys  ^^

Thans you ~

Cafe Buono... I was so exciting when I read that X'D...
Okay it's a poor post but I'm very busy now... sorry S:

PS: I love the uniforms.
Don't think your fic isn't so well done like Kokoro no Uta n_n , they're very different stories and both of them are very good. I think, Chigatte is more complex, anyway, I love your two stories XD

@fallenxangel: yeah, the uniforms are conveniently there XD

@kano-chan: aww~ thank you! :D

@rndmnwierd: thanx~ but I think Chigatte is a little more poorly worded, cuz i'm always in a rush :nervous

@Haruka: aww~ thank you!  just the relationships itself makes things more complicated, huh? :P

@Michi.Pinku: lol I dunno what's happening at CafeBuono yet, actually XD

@Tami_Ai: thank you~ i'm glad you look forward to the chapters~ :twothumbs


Thanks for comments guys~ But I actually do plan for Chigatte mo Iin da yo! to be shorter than Kokoro no Uta.  :nervous
Hopefully a lot shorter, since Kokoro no Uta was WAY longer than I planned for :sweatdrop:

and the story will move on a little faster for this fic, so hopefully, there will be less chapters :D
But that doesn't mean I'm getting lazy, so dont' worry!  XD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 7

   Reina opened her shoe locker and took out her sneakers.  She then removed her indoor slippers and put it in place of her outdoor shoes.  She shoved her feet into her sneakers and looked around to check if anyone was watching.  Determining that the coast was clear, the ex-yankii lifted her leg and placed her heel on the edge of the locker.  It seemed like quite an unflattering position, with her leg hoisted up like that, but Reina was too lazy to bend down to tie her shoes.  When she secured both sneakers on her foot, the petit girl closed her locker door.

   “SENPAI!”

   “AGH!”

   Reina jumped back in shock as her mind froze for a while.  As her brain restarted, it processed two smiling girls in front of her, who were hiding behind the locker door.

   “Aika!  Linlin!  You girls scared me half to death!” the older girl gasped, choking on air.

   “Sorry!” Aika giggled, holding up a hand in front of her face in apology.  “Linlin and I just had something to ask you.  It’s a message from Junjun-senpai!”

   “Why doesn’t she come and talk to me herself?” Reina asked, raising an eyebrow.

   “She’s doing extra work for the teacher because she slept during class,” Linlin grinned.  “I don’t know why the teachers even bother; she still aces all the tests anyway.  They should just let Jun-senpai be.”

   “It’s because they’re like me,” Reina smiled.  “We’re all curious how Junjun can do so well in school when she parties every waking moment.”

   “It’s a natural talent,” Aika said, quoting her gang leader.

   “Anyway, what were you guys going to ask me?” Reina questioned, returning to the original topic.

   “Junjun-senpai wanted us to ask,” Linlin started, “if you wanted to come Karaoke with us tonight.”

   “It’s Friday, so we can have fun for the rest of the day!” Aika exclaimed.

   “Guys, I’m not a yankii anymore, nor am I your leader,” Reina sighed.  “I want to go home at an early time like a good little girl and go to bed.”

   “That kind of image doesn’t fit you though, Tanaka-senpai,” Aika pouted.  “You should come hang out with us; it’s been a long time.”

   “And it won’t be a gang gathering with all the other girls too,” Linlin chipped in.  “It’ll be just the four of us, as friends.”

   Friends.  That word was starting to come up a lot in Reina’s life.  Junjun had said before that she and the girls broke into her house because they liked her.  Not because they wanted to bring her back to the group or punish her; it was because they considered her a friend.  But thinking of friends reminded Reina of a certain special friend that she had a previous appointment with.

   “I understand that,” Reina smiled, “but sorry, I already have plans today.  I’m meeting up with someone else.”

   “Oh, is it that girly boy from the park?” Linlin asked, her eyes sparkling in interest.

   “I think he looks like a wussy,” Aika grumbled, not appreciating the fact that her aspiration may be falling for such a weak-looking person.

   “I actually think so too,” Reina grinned.  Pretty boy really was too pretty.  “But he’s a good friend now.  Don’t judge before you get to know someone, okay?”

   “Hai~” the young kouhais answered in unison

   “Now run along,” the older girl ordered.  “I have to go home and change.  Tell Junjun we can meet up some other time.”

   The two girls nodded and saluted their ex-leader in a joking manner.  Then, they linked arms with each other and skipped away.  They always looked so innocent…

   Sighing, Reina took out her cell phone from her backpack.  She checked the previous message that she had sent to the pretty boy about their plans.  Smiling, she held the phone to her chest and walked out of the school building.

**  **  ** 

   “Here, Sensei,” the tall Chinese girl said, dropping multiple sheets of paper on the teacher’s desk in the staff lounge.  “I’m done with the extra work.”

   “Already?” the short teacher asked, making a face.  “Junjun, it’s only been ten minutes.  I told you, an essay of five pages on why you can’t sleep in class, didn’t I?”

   “Actually, it’s been seven minutes,” the panda smirked.  “And I wrote eight pages.  It’s quite analytical, actually.  I think it’ll be an enjoyable read, Yaguchi-sensei.”

   “Mou, Junjun… there’s really nothing I can do about you,” the blond teacher sighed, collecting the paper and making a straight pile out of it.  Every line was filled with neat handwriting; there were absolutely no signs of eraser marks or cross-outs.  This student knew what she was doing.  “It does look like a pretty good paper.”

   “I know it’s a good paper,” the yankii boasted.

   “I know you’re not an average student, Junjun,” Yaguchi-sensei said, trying to keep her voice low but also loud enough to talk over the chattering of other teachers.  “I don’t know how you can be so good in every subject, but that’s the only reason we, the teachers, put up with you and that gang of yours.”

   Rolling her eyes, Junjun started to tune out her teacher’s ranting about her yankii group.  As she yawned silently, she noticed a student other than herself in the lounge.  The student was talking to the teacher sitting by the desk next to Yaguchi-sensei’s; Junjun could overhear a little bit of their conversation.  The girl had long, straight black-hair.  She had pale white skin but soft cherry colored lips in contrast.  Her round face was kind of cute.

   The teacher was asking the girl how her first day at school was; she just nodded in response.  Huh.  Must be a transfer student.  Junjun continued to watch the other girl with interest, a small smile slowly spreading on her lips.  The more she looked at the black-haired girl, the more charming she seemed. 

   “Junjun, are you listening to me?” Yaguchi-sensei snapped, cutting off the panda’s thoughts.

   “Yeah, my gang isn’t something the school needs,” Junjun muttered.  “But it’s not like we cause any problems on school grounds.  In fact, I love this school.  It’s a cool place.”

   “I’m glad that you think that,” Sensei smiled.  “I guess what I’m trying to say is, even if you know all the class material, try to at least look like you’re paying attention?”

   “I’ll try,” Junjun sighed.

   “Thank you, Li-san,” Yaguchi-sensei beamed with appreciation.  “You may go now.”

   The Chinese girl bowed to the short teacher as she bid her farewell.  She turned around and slowly started to walk towards the door, but glanced sideways at the black-haired girl.  It seemed as though her teacher was doing most of the talking while she was just nodding or shaking her head.  Junjun smirked, completely entertained by the new-face, and left the staff lounge.

   But instead of walking down the hallway, the yankii leader leaned against the wall next to the door.  She planned on waiting for the new girl, and talking to her.  She was interested enough to see if she was her type.  After all, the new girl had already passed the first level regarding physical features.

   In no less than a minute, the lounge door slid open and the black-haired girl walked out.  She closed the door behind her and turned to where Junjun was.  She looked up and gasped, surprised by the unexpected presence.  Junjun smiled; the girl looked incredibly cute with her eyes wide open like that while her mouth was in a small “O” shape.

   “Oi, Ojou-chan,” the panda greeted, holding up one hand.  “Are you new here?”

   The black-haired girl didn’t answer.  She stared at the Chinese girl for a while before completely ignoring her question and walking around her.  Junjun wrinkled her eyebrows and cocked her head from the unexpected and rude reaction.  She quickly turned around and caught up to the new student, walking beside her.

   “Hey, I asked you a question!” Junjun said.  “What’s your name, Ojou-chan?  What year are you?”

   Yet the black-haired girl still stayed silent.  She completely disregarded the yankii beside her and kept on walking.  Junjun raised an eyebrow at the peculiar girl’s behavior; was she being shy or just being big-headed?  The Chinese girl then noticed which way they were heading, and cleared her throat

   “Um, you’re trying to find your way to the shoe lockers, right?” she asked.  “Well… we’re going the wrong way.”

   That had an effect; the new girl stopped dead in her tracks and looked around the empty hallway.  She then took out a folded piece of paper from between her vest and collar shirt.  She opened the paper and started to study the school map.  Junjun snorted a little but covered her mouth before she could completely laugh out loud; she hadn’t seen anybody in the school actually use the map before.  This girl seemed so innocent, yet kind of stubborn to ignore the yankii’s existence like that.  But to Junjun, it was merely entertaining.

   Finally, the black-haired girl looked up from the map and met eyes with the Chinese girl.  She scowled in frustration as she bit down on her bottom lip; she then whipped around and started to march down the other way.  Junjun just chuckled and quickly walked after her.  The way the new girl’s face had twisted in embarrassment was kind of cute; it only made the yankii want to tease her more.

   “Oi, Ojou-chan,” Junjun said, attempting to strike up a conversation again, “Did you just move here?  How did you get into Morning Gakuen?  Who are your parents?  You seem like an ojou-sama.”

   “And you’re obviously not,” the black-haired girl finally spoke, stopping in her trails to glare at the yankii.  Her black eyes were cold, just like her voice.  “Don’t try to associate yourself with me, low class.”

   “Ouch, that hurts,” Junjun whistled.  “Such cold words shouldn’t come out of such pretty lips.”

   “You’re just like any low class person,” the black-haired girl said sharply.  “I thought this was a prestigious school, but none of the other girls in my class seemed like a sophisticated lady either.  I’m disappointed.  Either people like you don’t belong here, or I don’t belong here.”

   “Hey, that’s not very nice,” Junjun smirked.  She leaned in closer to the new girl’s face to get down to her eye level; the black-haired girl stood her ground as though she was the bigger person.  “You seem like the spoiled rich girl type, Ojou-chan.  Let me make a suggestion: don’t make enemies with me.  If you make me angry, I guarantee that your school life will officially be over.  I’m pretty famous in here, you know.  And people like me.  Ah, but it’s not easy to make me angry either, since I’m a pretty chill person—”

   “You think words like that will scare me?” the black-haired girl shot back.  “There is no way a person like you would intimidate me; vulgar with absolutely no class.  And I don’t need a special school life; just me and myself is enough.”

   “Aw, don’t be so mean, Ojou-chan,” Junjun smirked again.  “It doesn’t suit your cute face.”  She reached out and gently stroked the transfer student’s cheek before her hand was quickly slapped away.

   “Don’t touch me!” the girl yelled, turning red with fury.  “Like I said: rude with absolutely no class!”

   With that, the new girl flipped her hair and stomped off.  Junjun just laughed to herself as she watched the black-haired beauty disappear down the stairs.  Two short girls were coming up the stairs; they split and made way for the new girl to walk down.  The two girls skittered down the hallway towards the yankii.

   “Junjun-senpai!” Aika called.  “Tanaka-senpai told us that she already had plans for today.”

   “Is that so,” Junjun answered monotonously.

   “Um, Senpai?” Linlin asked, raising an eyebrow.  “What are you staring at?”

   “Nothing,” the yankii leader said, grinning.  “I was just thinking that I have someone to entertain me now… and a cute one too.”  Let’s see how much I can break you down, Ojou-chan…  There has to be a winner for every game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So Sayu and Jun's Kyara are really different from my previous fic... which will result in a different kind of relationship/interaction :twothumbs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 8

    The ticking of the clock was deafening in the silent room.  It was about half a minute before the last class was officially coming to an end.  At this point, no student was paying attention to Takahashi-sensei’s lecture anymore and was instead focusing on the clock.  The teacher was well aware of this, but continued writing on the board anyway; her philosophy was that the students were responsible for their own grades, so it was their choice whether to pay attention in class or not.

   But there was one student paying attention and furiously copying down the notes on the board; of course, it was none other than the class representative.  The only time she took her eyes off the front of the classroom was to glance at her friend next to her.  Risa was surprised to find the turtle not asleep for once; instead, she was concentrating on the clock like everybody else while clutching her cell phone.  The bean could swear that the way Eri was staring at the clock probably could burn a hole through the wall.

   Finally, a silent countdown before the end of class started.  Although no one said anything, everybody’s mind was connected at the one moment with a steady time rhythm.  The teacher finished up her last bullet of notes and closed the textbook on the podium.  Eri started to tap her fingers nervously on her desk, receiving a suspicious look from the bean.

   At last, the bell rang throughout the entire school building, indicating the end of another tedious school day.  Takahashi-sensei shot a lovely smile at her students as she started to walk out the door.

   “Minna-san, good work today!” she said brightly.  “I hope you have a good afternoon!”

   “Bye Sensei~!” all the boys said in unison, almost drooling like toddlers who had just received candy.

   “Bye, Sensei!” all the girls chirped in a less creepy way than the boys.

     All the students jumped out of their seats and grabbed their pre-packed bags.  As everyone filed out of the classroom, Risa started to leisurely gather her things.  Eri shot up from her chair, grabbed her bag, and turned to her friend.

   “Um… Risa-chan?”

   “Yeah?”

   “I, uh… can’t walk home with you today.”

   Risa turned her head and raised an eyebrow at the fidgeting turtle.  “Does the fact that you spent the class time texting instead of sleeping have to do with this?”

   “Um... yeah.”

   “Does this have to do with that girl again?” Risa sighed.  “What was her name… Tanaka something?”

   “Tanaka Reina!” Eri exclaimed, a big smile spreading on lips from just mentioning the kitty’s name.  “She told me to meet her at Café Buono at 4 o’clock!  I have to go home and change really fast, so I’m going to run all the way.”

   “Isn’t that the café that always has those weird events and contests every day?” Risa asked.  “Anyway, I’m not in the mood for exercising, so you can go ahead.  Have fun and bring some cakes back.”

   “Okay!  Thanks, Risa!” Eri squealed.  She skipped towards the door before the bean suddenly spoke up again. 

   “Oh, and Eri!”

   “Yeah?” the turtle answered, whirling around.

   “Don’t ever forget who you are,” Risa warned in a serious tone.  “No matter how much like a boy you dress, always remember that you’re a girl, and that you’ll have to tell her some day.”

   “I… I know I’m a girl,” Eri said hesitantly, scrunching up her skirt with her fidgeting hands.  “And I will tell her someday… just not now.”

   “I’m not saying that you have to tell her now,” Risa said quietly.  “In fact, I’m not saying anything at all, really.  It’s your choice on what to do, but I’m just putting my own opinion out there.”

   “Okay,” Eri sighed.  “I’ll see you later, Risa.”

   “See you.”

   As Eri left the classroom, Risa got up from her seat and slung on her backpack.  Then, she started to walk around to room to straighten out the desks and chairs.  She picked up garbage paper as well as lost pencils and erasers to put them at the front of the classroom for people to find.  This job wasn’t required of her as the class representative, but Risa just hated seeing a dirty classroom at the end of the week.

   Satisfied with her quick clean-up job, the bean marched to the front of the room towards the door.  But before she could leave, something caught her eye.  She whipped around to see a red book on the podium, which meant it was the teacher’s.  She walked up to the podium to take a closer look, and realized it was Takahashi-sensei’s grade book.

   Risa felt a strong urge to open it to see what was in there; after all, it was the book that held all the grades of everyone in the class, including hers.  Being the nice teacher Takahashi-sensei was, Risa just assumed that the book would be filled with A-plus everywhere. But still… she was curious.

   She quickly looked around to make sure she was the only one in the room. Then, Risa slowly flipped the book open, landing on a vertical list of students’ names.  She gasped.

   The book was filled with all kinds of terrible grades, even a couple “F”s.  Risa checked the horizontal column at the top; each box had a date in it.  This teacher graded each student based on their day’s work, and averaged everything for a semester!  Risa exhaled sharply, shocked by what a harsh grader Takahashi-sensei really was, despite her outer character.

   The name of a certain turtle caught her eye: she had a “B” for the day.  It seemed like Sensei went a little easy on her, considering the grades other students who had packed up early and texted in class received.  But Eri had that kind of friendly aura; people were easily charmed by her.

   Risa’s eyes automatically started to search for a certain name.  She finally found it in the long list and pressed her finger on the grade she had received for the day: A-plus.  And the only A-plus too.  Even Konno Asami, who also ranked in the school’s top 10 along with the bean, had received an “A” because she packed up early.  The class representative grinned, satisfied with her grade.  So Takahashi-sensei really did take her job seriously, and was a pretty capable teacher too.  She wasn’t the type to dawdle off and just give out good grades.  Risa started to laugh silently, imagining the reaction of some of the boys in the class after they receive their terrible grades.  Maybe they would finally realize that one has to work hard to earn what they want.

   Now there was the problem of returning the grade book.  Maybe Risa could just leave it there and the teacher would come and find it herself when she realizes she left it behind.  After all, the bean didn’t have any special desires to see her history teacher again.  But it didn’t seem like much of a chore to go down to the staff lounge either; Takahashi-sensei really didn’t seem half-bad anymore.  She wasn’t the type to flirt or just throw out good grades to whoever called her “pretty”.  In fact, Risa herself had been kind of rude to her before, but she still got a good grade because she was a good student.  The teacher was harsh, but fair.

   Deciding that she would be a good class representative, Risa closed the grade book and tucked it under her arm.  She left the classroom and walked down the stairs towards the teachers’ lounge.  But before she could even set her foot on the first floor, she met her history teacher, rushing back up the stairs.

   “Gaki-san!” she greeted, smiling.  “You didn’t go home yet?”

   “I was about to,” Risa answered.  “But… this is yours, right?  You left it in the classroom.”  She held up the red grade book.

   “Oh, I was on my way to get it right now!” the teacher said, taking the book.  “Thank you, Gaki-san.  You saved me the rest of the trip up the stairs.”

   “No problem,” Risa answered simply, not smiling but not frowning either.

   “But… did you look inside?”

   “Yes— no!  No, no!  Wait- huh?”

   “I guess you did,” the teacher laughed.

   Risa looked at the ground as she felt her cheeks burning up.  Was the teacher going to yell at her?  She didn’t want Takahashi-sensei to be mad at her… No, wait.  That’s not the reason; she didn’t want this to affect her grade in a negative way… right?

   “You’re a smart girl, Gaki-san,” the teacher grinned, “so I assume you found out my system of grading, yes?”

   “… Yes…” the bean mumbled, admitting that she had looked inside the book.

   “Well then, would you do me a favor and not tell any of your classmates yet?” The teacher whispered, holding up a finger to her lips. “I think teaching my students the hard way that they have to pay attention in class is a rather good method.”  She winked.

   “Well, I’m not going to be the one to question your system,” Risa sighed.  “But… you’re not going to yell at me?”

   “Why would I yell at you?” Ai said, looking confused.  “Any other student would’ve done the same if they saw the teacher’s grade book just lying there.  And because it was you who looked in the book, I don’t think I mind so much.”

   What does she mean by that? Risa thought.  She doesn’t mind because I’m the class representative?  Or because I’m a good student anyway?  Yeah, that must be it…

   “I trust you to keep my secret, Gaki-san,” the teacher said, smiling.  “But I’m willing to give you some hush money too.”

   “Hush money?” Risa shrilled, eyes widening.  What the hell is this woman talking about?

   “I meant a drink,” the teacher laughed, clearing up the misunderstanding.  “I was going to get a coffee from the vending machines; I’ll treat you to something.”

   Before Risa could say anything, Ai turned around and started to walk back down the stairs.  The bean stared at her teacher for a while before following after her.  She wasn’t in any rush to get home anyway; maybe a soda wouldn’t hurt.

   The two females reached the vending machines outside the building in the courtyard.  Takahashi-sensei handed 150 yen in change to her student, and shoved some more coins from her skirt pocket into the machine.  A paper cup popped out and started to fill up with black coffee.  Risa popped the change into the vending machine next to the coffee machine, and bought a can of strawberry soda.  As she cracked open the can, Takahashi-sensei brought the paper cup to her lips and sipped the hot drink.

   “Sensei,” Risa suddenly said, “can I ask you something?”

   “You can ask and I’ll try to answer,” the older woman smiled.

   “Why did you decide to become a teacher?” the bean asked.  “I mean, you’re only 23-years old, which means you’re practically fresh out of college… What made you want to suddenly teach?”

   “That’s a good question,” Takahashi-sensei sighed, holding the warm cup with both hands.  “But first of all, I’m not fresh out of college.  I earned my college degree after two and a half years, because I got credits really quickly.  Then, I worked for my teaching license until I came here to Haro Kotogakko.”

   “You must’ve done very well in high school,” Risa remarked, surprised by how well her teacher had done academically.

   “Actually, I almost flunked out of high school,” the teacher said, laughing when her student’s eyes almost popped out.  “I wasn’t exactly a good girl back in the day.  My first two years were pretty bad.  But I straightened up in my third year and managed to study hard enough to graduate.  Then I worked very hard in college to get where I am now.”

   “Wow…” Risa breathed, gaining some new respect for her teacher.  “That’s actually even more impressive.”

   “Thank you,” Takahashi-sensei said, grinning.  “So as to why I decided to teach… I guess I wanted to prevent students from going off to the wrong path, like I almost did.  Everybody should be able to graduate high school and become who they want to be.  I want to help students become a ‘good person’, simply speaking.  Of course, things are a lot more complicated than the word ‘good’ but…”

   “So if one doesn’t receive proper education,” Risa started, “you think that will lead him or her to become a ‘bad person’?

   “There really is no such thing as a ‘bad person’ or a ‘good person’,” the teacher answered.  “Just… people who make bad choices or good choices.  I only said ‘good and bad person’ to speak in simple terms.”

   “So… do you think you’re a good person or a bad person?”

   Sensei looked at her student with a blank face.  Risa bit down on her lip, wondering if she had asked the wrong question.  Then, Takahashi-sensei’s face turned… sad.  It was a face filled with sorrow and regret.  She smiled a little.

   “No doubt,” she whispered, “I’m a very bad person.  But I’m a bad person working to be a good person, so I guess I’m improving.”

   “Why do you think you’re a bad person?”Ju

   “… I’ve made some bad choices in life,” the teacher answered slowly.  “Wrong choices, that led to terrible consequences.  It’s regretful, but I decided to keep moving forward.  Who knows, maybe things will turn out better for me in the future than it did for me in the past.”

   “… I don’t think you’re a bad person, Sensei,” Risa said quietly.  Ai turned to look at her again with a surprised face; the younger girl just gazed back with honest eyes. 

   “Thank you, Gaki-san,” the teacher smiled.  “You’re a very good person… and I hope you stay that way.”

   “I plan to stay that way,” the bean grinned, receiving a laugh from Sensei.

   “Good girl,” she complimented, ruffling Risa’s hair.  The way she stroked the short strands felt nice; it was warm and comforting, in a way.  It was a new feeling, but Risa didn’t hate it.  She definitely didn’t hate it at all.

Hmm, I wonder why Ai says she was bad? Perhaps instead of working hard for her grades in the last year, she slept with her professors and blackmailed them and then  something happened to make her feel guilty and she decided to change her ways. Eh, I'm just throwing some thoughts out there, ignore me. :sweatdrop:

Wow Eri got a B despite texting in class. Pretty good I would say. Is Takahashi sensei favouring the turtle? :D

Just a question though. Is Risa straight at this moment of the story or she just didn't have any preference yet?

Chapter 7: So Jun despite the fact she is a Yankee is actually intellingent and well like, it's an odd character but I like it :twothumbs So Sayu is again a spoiled princess charcter, t seems as though in this fic Jun's character will fight bck against Sayu alot more than in your last fic, I am looking forward to seeing how these two develop....

Chapter 8: Good old Gaki, allways giving sound advice to Eri, sorry Eri but you will have to teell Reina someday...

Gaki seems to be getting more ad more impressed with Ai, I wonder when she will sart to like her? Ai was a bit of a Yankee herself in the past? I wonder if her past will catch up to her at some point? And what was this bad thing tht Ai did, it seems to really affect her :panic:

Aww Gaki things Ai is a good person :wub: and she liked Ai stroking her hair.... :drool:

@badsaints: oh, Risa doesn't have a preference. She's such a honor student that she's never been in love. But she's tolerant, seeing that her best friend isn't straight  :D

@oddball: Yeah, I'm thinking of different ways the past could catch up with Ai...  :P

@fallenxangel: oh we'll see later~  :D


So... yeah, I'm typing madly.  I think this is going to be a pretty long chapter, and i think you guys will like it...
Hopefully, it'll be up by tonght  :twothumbs

All righties. It's posting moment once again. XD School is killing me, literally. However, reading your fanfic gives me a break. :twothumbs

I loved the past few chapters~~
It seems as if Eri is really head over heels over Reina already
This will be super interesting once Reina finds out Eri's true gender
I'm really liking the interaction between TakaGaki
However, I'm unable to see the love yet. :lol:
I'll just have to wait and see how you develop it

Btw, no worries about this fanfic being shorter or not as good as Kokoro. It's totally understandable that the first written fanfic is usually better than the second one. As one writes more, their writing becomes more profound and mature. However, as a writer myself, I always look back and go "ahh..My first fanfic was still the best. I put so much dedication and passion into it."

Update soon. :)

@Haruka: lol sleep is such a precious thing now...  :D


YES AN UPDATE :otomerika: :yossi: :cow:
And a super long chapter that i've been writing for the past week!  XD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 9

   Eri started to bob her head up and down to Café Buono’s theme song that flowed out the speakers.  She slowly looked around the shop, taking in the cute sights.  Mostly everything was white, including the wall, the tables, and the chairs.  There were lots of decorations with ribbons and pastel-colored streamers.  Three waitresses dressed in matching uniforms with different colors busily moved around the store, attending to their customers.  Another thing she noticed was that for some strange reason, there seemed to be a lot of couples in the café today; a boy and a girl sat across from each other at almost every table.

   The turtle looked up at the clock on the wall; it was five minutes before the promised time.  Obviously, she had come way too early since she had been waiting for about 20 minutes now.  Although she did fuss over her outfit, Eri found it a lot less time-consuming to pick out clothes as a boy than as a girl. She was dressed rather simply, but was still presentable.  The orange-and-brown plaid collar shirt that she wore over her yellow t-shirt matched well together.  She put on some baggy jeans that she had dug out of her closet with high-top sneakers.  To top it off, she had made sure that her short hair was ruffled up a little rather than being combed down.

   As Eri continued to explore the café with her eyes, somebody entered through the door with the soft chime of bells.  It was a petit girl wearing a loose, blue shirt that slipped down at her left shoulders.  She matched it well with a beige miniskirt and black boots.  She had a blue ribbon headband in her long, straight hair. 

   “Reina!” Eri called, her right arm shooting up.

   The short girl turned around and spotted the waving person.  She smiled as she started to walk over to the table.  Ah, that smile… Eri could feel her heart warming up with just that smile.  She felt as though it was all she needed in life.

   “Sorry for being late,” Reina apologized as she slipped into the chair across the turtle.

   “No, you’re not late,” Eri said.  “I was just early.”  A lot early…

   “Did you order anything yet?” Reina asked, grabbing the untouched menu on the table.  “See anything you like?”

   “It’s my first time here, so I’ll just have whatever you have,” Eri answered.

   “Okay then,” the kitty smiled.  She quickly flipped through the menu and put it down.  A black-haired girl wearing a green café uniform with a plaid skirt came to the table.

   “Hello,” she greeted with a sweet smile.  “I’m Airi, and I’ll be your waitress for today.  Are you ready to order?”

   “We’ll have two servings of manju and two taro bubble tea,” Reina said, handing the menu to the server.

   “I’ll be right out with that,” Airi said.  She walked away into the curtain that concealed the kitchen.

   “You come here often, don’t you?” Eri questioned, noticing the way her friend had swiftly ordered without even taking a clear look at the menu.

   “When I have time,” Reina answered, resting her chin on her hands.  “This place has a nice atmosphere to it.  Everything is so innocent and cute… It makes me feel like I’m innocent and cute too.”

   “You are innocent,” Eri said, resting her elbows on the table to lean in a little closer. “And you are cute.”

   “You’re quite the sweet-talker,” Reina laughed, pleased with the compliment.  “But I’m not so sure about the first part.”

   “Innocent?” Eri asked.  “You seem pretty pure to me, though.”

   “Are you sure?” the kitty smirked, narrowing her eyes a little.  “You don’t know who I was, or what I did in the past.  Maybe I’ve even been in jail.”

   “I could say the same thing about myself,” Eri grinned, feeling daring.

   “Ah~ you’re getting good at this, pretty boy,” Reina said, giggling. 

   “I have to, if I want to get a word in when talking to you,” the turtle replied, liking her new sense of bravery in front of the girl she liked.

   Reina laughed again as their waitress came back with a silver tray.  She placed two cups of bubble tea on the table, but only one plate of manju.

   “I’m terribly sorry,” the girl named Airi apologized, “but we’re currently out of the manju.  We’re making more at the moment, so please bare with us.”

   “Oh, one plate is fine then,” Reina said.  “We can share.”

   Nodding gratefully, the waitress flitted away to serve other costumers.  Reina took the small fork in front of her and started to carefully cut one of the two manjus in half. 

   “You can just have it, Reina,” Eri said.  “I’m okay with just the tea.”

   “No, I want you to try it,” the kitty said. 

   She continued on with the careful cutting until the fork broke through the chewy outer part and into the sweet inner part.  She stabbed the fork through one of the half and held it out to her friend.  Eri reached for the fork but Reina took it away, and then held it towards her again.

   “Just eat,” she ordered, grinning.

   Blushing a little at the fact that the girl she liked was feeding her, Eri slowly opened her mouth and bit half of the manju.  The chewiness of the mochi dough complimented well with the sweetness of the azuki bean paste.  Reina took the leftover bitten half of the manju into her own mouth, and started to chew delightfully.  They two girls swallowed at the same time.

   “It tastes really good,” Eri commented.  “I didn’t know traditional sweets could still be… well, sweet.”

   “It’s a lot healthier than modern desserts too,” Reina remarked. 

   Suddenly, the kitty reached out and touched Eri’s lips with her middle finger.  The turtle froze as her head started to process Reina’s action.  The petit girl smiled as she took the finger away and held it up to reveal some white flour on the tip of her fingers.

   “You had a little something there,” she smiled.  She licked off the powder with the tip of her tongue, causing the turtle to blush again. 

   “Um… Thanks,” she mumbled.  Oh, she knew she was wrapped around her fingers…

   “No worries,” Reina answered, smirking as she watched the turtle turn a slight shade of pink.

   “All costumers, attention please!”

   A cute voice rang through the speakers of the café as the music got cut off.  Everyone turned to the source of the voice on the small stage at the far wall of the shop.  A girl in a pink café uniform stood with a big smile, holding a mic.  There was a taller girl next to her with long, golden hair wearing a red uniform.

   “Konnichiwa, minna-san, Momoko desu~!” the short girl exclaimed, eliciting claps and cheers from the costumers.  “It’s time for today’s Café Buono special contest!”

   “Oh, today must be an event day!” Reina exclaimed, as Eri started to remember Risa’s words about the “weird café”.   “I wonder what kind of contest they’re holding.”

   “We see that a lot of you came here today with the knowledge of what contest today will be,” the cute girl continued.  “But those of you who came here by chance, today’s contest is going to be a Best Couple Contest!”

   Eri gasped as she started to realize why they were so many couples present at the café today: they had all come for this contest!  The turtle couldn’t help but wonder if she and Reina looked like a couple right now too… she couldn’t help but worry about whether she looked like a boy.  Wait… had Reina known about this contest?  Did she purposely ask the turtle to meet her here?  Eri looked at the shorter girl across from her; the ex-yankii’s eyes were fixed on stage, simply She probably didn’t know…

   “Now, Miyabi,” the girl called Momoko said to her friend, “please explain the rules for us!”

   “Here is what’s happening,” the tall girl in the red uniform started.  “There will be three rounds: for the boys, then the girls, then a joint trial.  Couples will be eliminated after each round into semi-final five couples, then final three couples.

   “We also have prizes prepared for the final three couples!” Momoko cut in.  “The first place couple will receive two free tickets to the amusement park.  The second place couple will receive two tickets to the aquarium.  And the third place couple will receive tickets to the movies!”

   “Think you have what it takes to be the Best Couple?” Miyabi grinned.  “Then come on down to the stage!”

   A commotion broke out from the crowd immediately as various boyfriends and girlfriends started to get up to participate.  Eri relaxed her shoulders and started to sip her bubble tea, until Reina shot up from her seat while slamming her hand down on the table.

   “Reina?” Eri squeaked, taken by surprise by the kitty’s sudden action.

   “Eri, the first place prize is tickets to the amusement park!” Reina squealed.  “I haven’t been there in forever!  Come on, let’s participate!”

   Before Eri could say anything, the kitty dragged her off the chair and onto the stage.  The turtle fidgeted a little, worried that people might realize she was not a boy.  But nobody seemed to think the latter; after all, how many girls in the world dressed up as a guy to win the heart of the person they loved?  But Eri was still nervous, also because of the fact that Reina was standing right next to her, holding her hand.  She couldn’t shake off the giddy feeling of joy that they were viewed as a couple at the moment by everybody in the store.

   “The first trial will be a test of strength for the boyfriends!” Momoko announced.  “Your mission is to run a lap around the block as fast as you can and try to get within the top five.  There is a mid checkpoint, where you’ll receive a stamp from Airi, so you can’t take shortcuts!”

   “Now that everyone knows the rules, let’s all head outside!” Miyabi yelled.

   Before Eri could fully comprehend the exact situation, she found herself being pushed along with the large crowd of couples towards the exit.  The atmosphere was at its highest tension with excitement.  Before she could be separated from the turtle in the midst of the commotion, Reina linked her arms with Eri’s and pressed herself tightly against the “boy”.  Eri couldn’t help but blush a little as the ex-yankii just smiled.

     Soon enough, all the boyfriends participating in the Best Couple Contest were lined up by the door, getting ready to run.  Their girlfriends and other bystanders cheered loudly.  Eri nervously eyed the other guys, who glanced at her and smirked or scoffed.

   “Watch out, little guy,” a buff teenager said next to the turtle.  “You just might get stepped on.”

   Eri shivered at those words.  She was actually a pretty fast runner between the other girls in her school… but would she be able to outrun all these guys?  She inhaled and exhaled a couple times to steady her breath as her heart pounded wildly. 

   “All boyfriends ready?” Momoko called, holding up a pink flag in her hand.  “On your mark… get set…”

   As the turtle started to concentrate, she heard a single voice that stood out from the rest of the yelling.

   “Eri, GANBARE!” Reina cheered.  “YOU CAN DO IT!”

   “GO!”

   The pink flag waved in the air as Eri perked up.   Just that small encouragement was enough to get her going; anything for the girl she loved, right?

   Eri didn’t hold back one bit; she sent her legs in a fast cycle of motion at full speed, easily passing at least half the other boys.  They had more muscle were stronger, but she was lighter and faster.  The turtle quickly dashed around the corner, not doing her nickname justice.  At a certain point, she could make out a girl in a green café uniform, standing in the sidewalk while holding up a stamp.  A couple guys in front of her stopped to get their hand stamped.  Eri did the same.

   “There you go!” the black-haired girl said, stamping the café’s logo onto the turtle’s hand.  “Now head to the finish line, Kareshi-kun!”

   Eri mumbled a quick thank you and continued running.  Beads of sweat started to trickle down the side of her face.  She could feel the drops of perspiration down her back and on her stomach.  The chest binding that she was wearing felt heavy and sticky as she started to breathe harder.  She needed to run faster.  She had to win!

   Remembering the voice of a certain kitten, Eri picked up the pace and passed by a couple of other guys.  Soon enough, she saw the finish line where Momoko and Miyabi were standing on either side.  The cheer of the crowds awaited her and the other contestants.  The turtle ran as fast as she could, shutting her eyes tightly, before she felt herself coming into a semi-circle of people and collapsed to the ground.  A loud cheer erupted from the audience.

   “Great job, Fifth place-san!  You just made the cut!” a cute voice congratulated.

   “Wait, Momo, he doesn’t look so good!” the other waitress said.  “Someone get him a water bottle!”

   Eri continued to breathe heavily has her eyes fluttered open and close.  Every breath she took scratched her dry throat, causing her to wheeze.  Her muscles felt paralyzed with exhaustion as she tried to differentiate oxygen from the other types of gases in the atmosphere. 

   Suddenly, a cool sensation started to fall down on her head.  The turtle immediately looked up with a loud yelp as her face was met with cold water.  Desperate for a drink, Eri opened her mouth wide to let in whatever liquid she could have, whether it was through her mouth or her nose.  When the waterfall disappeared, Eri coughed a little bit before looking up to the person who had just rewarded her.

   “Impressive, pretty boy,” Reina laughed as she threw down the empty bottle of water and immediately started to open another one.  She crouched down and held the plastic bottle out to the turtle, who immediately took it and started to chug it down.  “Woah, slow down there.  Nobody wants to steal your water.”

   As soon as those words were said, Eri choked on the cold drink and started to cough.  Reina just laughed and reached out to reorganize Eri’s messy, wet hair.  But the turtle backed away a little.

   “It’s okay, you don’t have to touch me right now,” she said in a hoarse voice.  “I’m all sweaty anyway…”

   “You think I care about things like that?” Reina smirked. 

   This time, she reached out both hands and secured Eri’s face in between her palms.  She tapped her forehead against the turtle’s, making Eri’s eyes grow wide and her cheeks blush.

   “I’m proud of you, Eri,” she grinned.  “Since we’re in the Top 5 to move on to the next round, I’ll do my best for you too.  Okay?”

   “Ha… Yeah… um… okay,” Eri mumbled, unable to form coherent words.  Reina’s beautiful face was just too close; the faint scent of flowers wafted around her nose.  It was hard for Eri to believe that she could be this close to such a cute girl… and it was unbelievable how it just felt so right.

 **  **  ** 

   “We present to you your Top 5 couples!”

   A loud cheer came from the audience as well as lots of clapping.  The five couples smiled as they clung onto each other’s lover.  Eri’s cheeks stayed a  pink as she constantly felt overly aware of the kitty dangling on her left arm.

   After the running competition, all but five couples were eliminated from the contest.  The runners were given more water and some time to rest before they were asked to stand on stage again for the next round.  All the audience members sat in the tables and booths; there were even more people watching than before, for the first round race had convinced them to stick around the café to see the final results of the contest.

   “It is time to start the second round!” Momoko announced through the microphone.  “This time, it will be a trial for the girlfriends.  No matter what anyone says, the most important thing for a girl is to have their own charm to appeal.  So that is your mission; each girl will come up and stand in front of the center mic stand and say or do something to lure in the hearts of all the males sitting in the café!”

   “Whether you’re the cute type or the mature type, make sure to show all of your character!” Miyabi added on.

   “So let us start!” Momoko exclaimed.  “First girlfriend, please come to the center!”

   And so, each girl came up to the microphone and said a little something.  One tried to act cute by pronouncing every word like a baby.  Another tried to talk dirty, which kind of worked on the males but gained the hatred of the females in the audience.  All throughout the other girls’ trials, Eri couldn’t help but continue to wonder what Reina was going to do to appeal herself.

   “You’re up next,” the turtle whispered.  “Are you ready?”

   “Uh… just give me a minute,” Reina mumbled, looking panicked.  “I’m thinking…”

   Eri looked at the kitty in confusion as the petit girl tightened her grip around the “boy’s” arm.  Of course the ex-yankii was worried.  She didn’t know how to be cute, or mature.  She had never really tried to appeal herself as a girl before…  And now she had to carry out this mission in front of the entire café.

   “And now, the final girlfriend!” Miyabi announced.  “Please come forward!”

   Reina swallowed hard as she released herself from her turtle friend.  She slowly walked up to the microphone and looked around.  Everybody was staring at her, as if to analyze her.  Feeling nervous, Reina just said the first thing that came to her mind, completely releasing her true character.

   “Whatcha y’all lookin’ at?!” she growled, in some sort of dialect.  All the eyes in the audience popped wide open at the sudden harsh words.  Eri raised an eyebrow, confused.  Reina gasped, realizing what she had just said.  She quickly acted to cover up her mistake.  “No, I was just kidding!  Mite…”  She placed her hands together slightly under her chin and tried to look as innocent as possible.  The crowd was silent for a while, before they broke out into loud cheering and whistling.

   “Wow, a tsundere concept!” Momoko squealed.  “That was impressive, Kanojo Number 5!”

   “Uh… yeah… that was it… tsundere…” Reina mumbled, laughing nervously.  Well, it wasn’t what she was exactly going for, but it seemed to have a good effect.

   The ex-yankii quickly sidestepped out of the spotlight and back to her “boyfriend’s” side.  She linked her arms with Eri’s again and looked up.

   “How was that?” she whispered.

   “… Don’t do that in public again,” Eri mumbled, keeping her head down.

   “Why not?” Reina asked, raising an eyebrow.  “Was it that bad?”

   “No!  It was… it was cute but… just don’t do it in public again…”  All those people are looking at you now with different eyes.  I don’t like that!

   “Okay, I won’t do it again,” Reina promised.  She didn’t really care too much about what Eri’s reasoning was.  She didn’t really want to do such an embarrassing thing in public again anyway.

**  **  ** 

   “Ladies and Gentlemen,” Momoko announced, “these are your Top 3 Couples!”

   A loud applause elicited from the crowd, congratulating the final three girls and boys.  The first couple was a teenage couple, just like the turtle and the kitten (except for the fact that they were probably really going out and one of them was really a boy…).  The second couple seemed little older, maybe college students.  And the third couple was none other than Eri(ku) and Reina.

   “Now the final trial will be given!” Miyabi announced.  “This round will be judged by Momoko, Airi, and myself as well as the audience members!  It will determine which prize goes to which couple!”

   “Your trial,” Airi started, smiling, “is to kiss each other!”

   A wave of excited murmurs and whistling spread through the crowd.  The first couple blushed a little while the elder second couple just smiled.  The last (fake) couple gasped as their eyes grew wide.

   “It doesn’t matter who initiates the kiss,” Momoko explained, “but it must be on the lips!  Your mission is to show a “Loving Kiss”; that’s your theme!”

   “Let us feel the sweetness of your love,” Miyabi grinned.  “You need to take all of us to the place that only exists between you two!”

   “Yume no sekai e tsurettete~” Airi sang dreamily.

   “So without further ado,” Momoko announced, “the first couple please!”

   The two teenagers stepped up to the middle of the stage and faced each other.  Neither of them seemed too sure of what to do.  They both blushed as they met eyes.  The guy said something about not being able to kiss her in public, that it was too embarrassing. 

   All the while, Eri could only silently think about what she and Reina were going to do.  Would they really be able to kiss?  Would Reina mind?  Eri herself certainly didn’t mind, that was one fact.  Would they be able to fake it somehow?  But it was on the lips… And worst of all, Reina still didn’t know that Eri was a girl.  Would it be wrong to kiss her when Reina still didn’t know one of the most important things about her?

   A loud squeal broke Eri out of her thoughts.  She focused on the young couple in the middle of the stage; the girl had daringly pulled her boyfriend’s collar to herself and pecked him on the lips.  The crowd was practically melting from the young lovers’ cuteness.

   “That was adorable!” Momoko squealed, practically jumping up and down.  “Next couple please~!”

   The two college students boldly stepped up to center stage as Eri became preoccupied with her own thoughts again.  What should she do?  She was the “guy” at the moment, so she would be the one to initiate the kiss, right?  But then again, Reina wasn’t the type of girl to wait around; she was the type to take matters into her own hand.  But they weren’t even going out…

   “EXCUSE ME!” Miyabi shouted, making Eri jump back into reality again.  “That’s enough, please step down!”

   The two “mature” lovers had started off with a sweet kiss which satisfied the audience enough.  But their interaction had started to grow and they had eventually started to make out in a non-PG way on stage.  As Miyabi and Airi pulled them away from the spotlight, along with the groans from the crowd, Momoko quickly spoke into her microphone.

   “Our final couple, please take the stage!” she said, trying to sound perky.

   Eri and Reina slowly staggered towards the center.  They both turned to face each other; Reina’s face was expressionless as she looked up at the “boy”.  Eri’s face was tilted down towards the kitty but her eyes were flickering from left to right, not sure of what to do. 

   Why isn’t she saying anything? Eri thought, biting her bottom lip.  Does she mind if we kiss?  Or is she expecting me to already know that we shouldn’t kiss?

   “Um… please carry out the trial swiftly,” Miyabi said, laughing shakily.

   You know what? Eri thought, clenching her teeth.  This is a contest, and Reina wants to win!  And if she wants to win, then I’m going to kiss her, no matter what her reaction is going to be!  And this may be my one and only chance to kiss her…

   With that decision, the turtle placed her hand under the petit girl’s chin and tilted her head up, allowing Reina’s eyes to widen.  She placed her hand gently on the kitty’s shoulder and leaned in closer to her face.  The flowery scent of the shorter girl wafted around her nose.  As Eri slowly started to close her eyes, she noticed that Reina’s eyes were already closed, giving her the signal to go. 

   … This isn’t right, Eri thought suddenly, frowning a little.  We aren’t even going out and I’m supposed to be the guy here.  What if this is her first kiss?  Reina would be sacrificing such a precious moment for a stupid contest, and to a guy who isn’t even her boyfriend.  I’m not going to be the selfish one.

   With that, Eri leaned in closer until she placed a gentle kiss, right at the corner of Reina’s lips.  The audience let out a groan of dissatisfaction, as they had been looking forward to an actual lip-lock.  The turtle backed away as the kitty opened her eyes again, looking surprised. 

   “I’m sorry, the rules are that you have to kiss her on the lips…” Momoko said into her microphone.

   “Give me that,” Eri ordered, snatching the mic from Miyabi’s hand.  “I’m sorry for breaking the rule, everyone.  But the truth is, we haven’t been going out for very long.”  Yeah, zero days and zero minutes.  “And I didn’t want to kiss my girlfriend in front of all these people when I wasn’t sure if we were even comfortable kissing at all.  I won’t do anything that Reina will regret.”

   A wave of “aw”s and chuckling traveled through the audience.  The three café waitresses smiled as Airi broke out into a line of, “Anata no koe ni tsuiteyuku~” from the same song she had sang before.  Eri looked down at the shorter girl who was blushing a little; she immediately dropped her head down to the floor and attached herself to Eri’s right arm, eliciting another satisfied murmur from the crowd.

   “Well, I think that certainly shows the potential of being the Best Couple,” Momoko giggled.  “But unfortunately, rules are rules, so…”

   “Couple #1 will be the Best Couple!” Airi announced.  “Followed by Couple #3 and Couple #2!”

   The two teenage lovers blushed as the girl covered her mouth.  The college students started to mumble about the public not knowing true expressions for love.  Eri smiled a little and looked down at Reina next to her, who still refused to show her face that was now bright red.

**  **  ** 

   “Two aquarium tickets,” Reina said, holding up two strips of paper up into the sky.  “They’re not amusement park tickets, but they’re still cool enough.”

   She whirled around and started to walk backwards in order to face Eri.  The turtle had a sad smile.  The two teenagers were now on their way back to their respective homes.  Eri had a box of cake in one hand from Risa’s request.

   “I’m sorry we couldn’t get first place,” She sighed.  “I know how much you wanted to go to the amusement park.”

   “It’s okay,” Reina grinned.  “I still got something good out of it.”

   She winked which caused the turtle to slightly blush.  What could Reina mean by that?  Was she talking about the non-lip-lock kiss from before?

   “But it is a shame,” the kitty sighed.  “We could’ve gotten first place…”

   She stopped in her tracks and walked back to stand right in front of Eri, who had to tilted her back a little because the short girl was so close.  Reina smiled and put her index finger on her own lips.

   “You know,” she started, “you could’ve just kissed me right here.  I wouldn’t have minded.”

   “… Really?” Eri asked, raising both her eyebrows.  I wish she hadn’t told me that… now I’m kind of regretting it…

   “Why, do you regret it now?” Reina smirked, reading the turtle’s mind.  “Then shall I give you one more chance?”   

   The petit girl reached out and secured Eri’s face between her hands.  She craned her neck up to make their noses touch; Eri’s eyes widened as her cheeks grew hotter.  Reina leaned and closer and closer and suddenly blew a puff of air onto the turtle’s lips, causing her breath to hitch.  The kitty smirked.

   “Just kidding,” she whispered.  She quickly turned around and skittered down the street.  She waved as she looked back.  “Mata ne!”

   As Reina disappeared around the corner, Eri stood frozen at her spot, unable to even blink.  She could still feel the petit girl’s breathe on her face and the softness of her hands on her cheeks…  And back at the café, Eri had thought that she was in charge for once because of the way Reina had blushed.  But the kitty had completely turned the tables with this teasing of hers.

   Well, there’s always next time… right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just a couple notes:
*Eri's outfit is based off the Namidacchi costume from the PikaPika tour.
*Reina's outfit is based off fromt the MoMusu 2010 FC event, except for the hair
*Buono girls' outfit is from the performance of "Koucha ga Oishii Mise"
*The Manju is something Reina ate on Bijo Houdan.
*Reina's line from her trial is what she said from Mujack (I forgot the exact lines though)

I hope this is enough to bring this thread back to life :twothumbs

 :lol: :lol: Eri is so screwed now. Reina just cast the line, caught her easily and reeled her in to flop on the pier for a while, but Eri doesn't want to jump back into the water. XD

Still, though, Reina's not the only one doing the reeling as it seems that Eri's sweetness is prevailing.

Buono Cameo :D!!! It was hard to Imagine that Reina was ever a Yankee the way she acted with Eri through their 'date', even her doing her Yankee/Tusundere bit to the crowd came off cute, she seemed too act much more like a girl as well, that is untill Eri and Reina were alone and then she went back to being in charge  :lol:

Laughed at the whole kissing scene where Eri was actualy being a really nice guy...girl....guy but a girl.....whatever  :P to reina and not forcing what could be Reina's first kiss(in Eri's mind anyway) to win a competion because Eri thinks that Reina might be saving it  :wub: perhaps Reina was blushing becasue she has never mret or been with a guy...er girl who has though of her feeling like that :oops:

I had some time :cow: :grin:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 10

   “Kameha, are you listening to me?”

   “Huh?  What?”

   Eri blinked a couple times and turned her eyes to her friend, who had waved her hand in front of the turtle’s face to get her attention.

   “I said, thanks for the cake!” Risa repeated in an annoyed tone.  “Have you been listening to anything I said for the past 10 minutes?”

   “Uh... did it involve the cake?” Eri guessed, smiling nervously.

   “Yeah, for the past 30 seconds,” Risa said flatly.  “What are you thinking about?”

   The turtle sighed as she hugged her knees to her chest.  She was curled up on her sofa, leaving the cake she had bought from Café Buono untouched on the coffee table.  Risa was sitting on the floor while facing her friend, fully enjoying the sweetness of her own share of the dessert.

   “Just… stuff,” Eri answered vaguely, eliciting an unsatisfied grunt from her friend.

   “That doesn’t give me much,” the bean complained.  “Tell me, what’s going on?  Did something happen between you and that Reina girl?”

   “Well…” the turtle hesitated.  “We almost kissed.”

   “… EHHH?”

   Risa’s eyes almost popped out of her head as she dropped her fork onto the floor.  Eri blushed as she eyed the dropped utensil.  Catching the drift, the bean quickly picked up her fork and grabbed a napkin from the table to wipe off the blob of cream that had gotten on the floor.

   “You don’t need to be that surprised,” Eri mumbled.  “It’s not like we actually did kiss.”

   “But you said ‘almost’!” Risa yelled, obviously overreacting.  “Tell me everything that happened!”

   And so, the turtle went on to talk about Café Buono’s Best Couple Contest, and how she and Reina had entered.  She talked briefly about the first and second round, but she mostly informed the bean about the last round.  She told her how she was going to kiss the kitty, but then changed her mind for a good reason.

   “You made the right choice,” Risa commented, taking some more cake into her mouth after wiping her fork clean.  “That was a pretty gentlemanly thing to do, Kameha.”

   “I’ll take that as a compliment, seeing the situation I’m in now,” Eri grumbled.

   She then went on to talk about how Reina had teased her before she left.  Risa dropped her fork one more time which triggered a repetition of the turtle’s glare, and the bean having to clean the floor again.

   “That’s really…” Risa started, unable to get a correct adjective, “unexpected.”

   “That doesn’t even cover it,” Eri sighed, tightly bounding her legs in her arms.

   “Well, she’s definitely got you wrapped around her fingers,” the bean chuckled.  “I don’t think she’s just playing with you, though.  She wouldn’t get that close with you if she’s not serious enough.”

   “Not in Reina’s case,” Eri disagreed, shaking her head.  “She can be really mysterious, you know?  She can read my mind like a book but I can never understand her…”

   “That’s just you being an aho, Kameha.”

   “Thanks, Risa-chan, that makes me feel so much better.”

   Eri rolled her eyes and stuck out her tongue at the grinning bean.  Risa shoved the last piece of cake into her mouth and licked her fork clean before putting it down.  She let out a satisfied sigh as she leaned back a little to balance on her two hands.

   “I’m sorry, Kameha, but I really don’t know what to say to you,” she said, shrugging.  “I’ve never met the girl, so I can’t really agree or disagree with your point.  The best advice I can give you is—”

   “To tell the truth,” Eri finished, grumbling.  “I know, I know…”

   “If you know, then do what you think is best!” Risa encouraged.  “I mean, if you have such strong feelings for her, than there must be something about you that she likes, considering she’s not ignoring your texts or anything.”

   “I guess you’re right…” Eri sighed, still worried.  “I’ll try to find the right time… or something.”

   “Hey, it’s your business.”

   Risa stretched her body before she picked up her empty plate and got up. She walked to the kitchen and placed it in the sink as she turned the faucet.

   “You can just leave it,” Eri called before the bean could wet her hands.  “I’ll wash it with my breakfast dishes tomorrow.”

   “Oh, okay.”

   Risa quickly obliged as she turned the water off and returned to the living room.  She pounced on the sofa and hugged a cushion to her chest as she leaned back on one armrest while facing the turtle. 

   “So,” Eri started, “what did you do after I left school today?”

   “Nothing too interesting,” the bean yawned.  “I cleaned the classroom, had a drink with Takahashi-sensei, and I stopped by at the bookstore because—”

   “Wait, what?” the turtle interrupted, blinking furiously.  “Did you just say you had a drink with Takahashi-sensei?”

   “Uh… yeah,” Risa answered, raising her eyebrow at her friend’s peculiar reaction. “She bought me a soda while she drank coffee… Is there something wrong that?”

   “No, nothing’s wrong,” Eri quickly said.  “It’s just… I mean… I thought you hated Takahashi-sensei?”

   “I don’t hate Sensei!” the bean denied, her voice getting a little louder.  She cleared her throat and started again.  “I mean, I was a little doubtful at first, I guess… But I talked to her a little today.  She seems like a good person.”

   The process of that day’s afternoon replayed in the bean’s head.  The way Takahashi-sensei had bought her the drink, the way she had smiled, the way she had stroked her hair…

   Why would she say she’s a bad person? Risa thought.  What could she have done that was so terrible?  But her hands were too warm… She’s definitely not a bad person.

   “Do I see the judgmental Risa-chan improving as a human?” Eri giggled. 

   “Since when do you base your facts on humanity?”

   “Or maybe I’m just seeing an average girl in love~” the turtle cooed.  “That’s a simpler explanation.”

   “Are you kidding me?” Risa yelled, slightly blushing.  “There’s no way I could be in love with Sensei!  I would know if I was, and I’m not.”

   “How would you know?” Eri challenged, grinning.  “You’ve never been in love before.  Even when other kids had crushes on you back in elementary school, you didn’t even take one glance at them.”

   “I think I still know myself well enough, Kameha,” Risa shot back, rolling her eyes.  “Look, it’s nothing like that.  I’m just more approving of Sensei; that’s all.”

   “Uh-huh~” the turtle smirked.  “I understand~”

   “You’re hopeless,” Risa groaned.

   As Eri continued to giggle and quietly tease her friend, the bean could only think about the riddle in her head. 

   What makes a good person ‘good’? 

   And what makes a bad person so ‘bad’…?

that was kinda fun to talk about Reina and sensei, although I think Eri is just walking into the unexpected and might get hurt, oh well Reina should be more up front with her feelings

Friendship moments are good too, especially since it gives them more insight into each other's problems and us into what they think when the dust settles.

“You made the right choice,” Risa commented, taking some more cake into her mouth after wiping her fork clean.  “That was a pretty gentlemanly thing to do, Kameha.”

See Risa is also confused by it all  :lol:

Hmm Risa might be right, Eri will have to tell Reina at some point, why do I get the feeling she won't do this however  :P

Aww Risa getting al defensive about Ai  :wub: Eri was joking about Risa liking Ai but I think she figured what was going through Risa's mind even if she did so unintentionally...

WOO-HOO! UPDATE!!! :cow:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 11

   “That’s a terrible picture, Mittsi, you better delete it.”

   “But why~ I think you look fine, Jun-senpai…”

   Aika stuck out her bottom lip and pouted as Junjun shot a stern glare at her.  Linlin just grinned next to her girlfriend, knowing that the current mini argument was not such a serious one.

   “You took it while I was talking,” the panda snapped.  “You know how much I hate that.”

   “But that’s what makes the picture so much more natural!” Aika squealed.  She whipped around to the shorter Chinese girl and held up the camera.  “Linlin, say something!”

   “I love you, Mittsi!” the short-haired girl exclaimed as the camera flash popped in her face.

   “Ah, this one came out so nicely too!” Aika giggled, looking at the picture of her girlfriend with a big grin and her hands up to her chest in the shape of a heart.  “Oh, and I love you too~”

   “Stop being so corny in public,” Junjun grinned.  “What am I going to do with you two…”

   The three girls continued to walk down the school hallway as the rest of the students moved out of their way.  Determining that Aika’s photo fest was over, Junjun naturally slid into her original position in the middle as the two kouhais stepped back, flanking their group leader.  The older panda nodded along to the girls in the hallway who waved or expressed some sort of greeting towards her.  Although these three girls were yankiis, they didn’t terrorize their own school in any way, especially after Junjun came to power.  In fact, the leader preferred to describe her group has the protectors of her school.  Since she was smart as well as mature and reliable, the teachers didn’t bother with them as much as they did while Reina was in power.  Because of the panda’s gentle and social nature, she was quite popular amongst the students at Morning Gakuen as well.

   Suddenly, Junjun spotted a familiar girl in front of her, a couple feet away.  She had long black hair that stretched down the back of her ironed uniform.  She made a turn and entered a classroom, revealing the side of her face in the process.  The panda’s curious expression turned into a smirk as she realized who it was.  She started to debate in her mind whether to make a move or not; deciding that this was almost a golden opportunity, Junjun chose to go on the hunt.

   She marched up to the door of the classroom and discovered that it was for 2nd years.  So the black-haired new girl was in the same grade as her… Aika and Linlin raised their eyebrows and stared at their leader.

   “Um, senpai?” Linlin started.  “This isn’t your classroom…”

   “Forget classroom,” Aika continued.  “Lunch period isn’t even over yet.  Let’s go do something else.”

   “No, I have something I need to take care of,” Junjun grinned.  “You guys can wait out here and watch if you want.”

   With that, the tall panda slid the door open and took a step in.  The girls in the classroom turned around and let out a couple squeals and gasps as they realized who their visitor was.  Some called out a casual greeting, to which Junjun responded to with a wave or a smile.

   “Junjun!” one girl exclaimed, skittering towards the Chinese girl.  “Long time, no see!”

   “Yeah, it’s been a while, Chii-chan,” the panda grinned.

   “You seem well, Jun!” another girl smiled, also standing up.

   “You too, Ume-chan,” the panda responded again.

   “What brings you to our classroom, Junjun?” another girl said, giggling.  “Was it because you missed me~?”

   “Sorry, Megu, I have a different business today,” Junjun smirked. 

   She turned and shot a quick glance towards her followers at the door, who were still merely staring at their leader with a confused expression.  The panda then scanned the room quickly and smiled when she spotted the one she had been looking for.  The black-haired girl was glaring at her as though looks could kill; she was definitely less than excited to see the yankii again.

   “Yo~ Ojou-chan!” Junjun called, swaggering over to the transfer student’s desk and bending down a little to face the upset girl.  “So you’re in this class, huh?  I guess we’re in the same year, then.”

   “Jun, you know the new girl?” the girl called Megumi asked.

   “Depends on your definition of the word, ‘know’,” the yankii grinned.  “She won’t tell me her name so would somebody else mind telling me instead?”

   “That’s rude,” Chinami scolded the new girl, who glared back.  “You should introduce yourself properly when you meet someone.  Junjun, her name is Michishige Sayumi.”

   “Michishige Sayumi?” Junjun smiled.  “That’s a cute name.”

   She waited for some sort of response from the black-haired girl, but she kept her gaze down on her empty desk, refusing to interact with the other girls.

   “Don’t pay attention to her, Junjun,” Megumi sighed.  “She’s really antisocial.”

   “You’re not going to make friends here if you keep acting like that, Shige-chan,” the girl called Ume-chan warned.

   “Oh whatever, Erika, she can do whatever she wants,” Chinami rolled her eyes.  “Jun, we should go hang out sometimes again!  We all kind of miss you~”

   As the cute girl smiled and linked her arms with the panda, the other two girls also started to chatter at high-speed, trying to flirt with their visitor.  Having had enough, the new girl slammed her hands down on her desk and got up.  As the rest of the class watched with wide eyes, Sayumi stormed out of the classroom, pushing Aika and Linlin away in the process. 

   “She’s so rude!” Chinami huffed.  “It’s a shame, since she has such a cute face…”

   “It’s okay, we don’t need her,” Megumi grinned.

   “I might take you up on that…” the panda mumbled.

   “What?”

   “Oh, nothing,” Junjun quickly smiled, hiding all emotions.  “I’m sorry, but you’ll have to excuse me, girls.  I’m on a mission.”

   “Ooh~ mission!” Chinami giggled.  “Sounds mysterious.”

   “Call us whenever you feel like hanging out,” Erika said, winking.

   Junjun nodded at each girl and swiftly left the room.  As soon as she reached the hallway, Aika and Linlin fell back into their ranks again.  But Junjun held up one hand and shook her head, indicating that she was going on this “mission” alone.

   The panda quickly jogged down the hallway after the black-haired girl, who showed no signs of slowing down.  Junjun had to grab Sayumi’s arm and whirl her around to finally get her attention. 

   “Hey, will you wait up?” the panda said.  “I just wanted to say hi.”

   “Hi,” Sayumi said.  She pulled her arm out of Junjun’s grasp.  “Good-bye.”

   As the black-haired girl turned again, something dropped on the ground.  Before Sayumi could reach for it, Junjun quickly picked it up first.  It was a white cell phone, covered with little sticker decorations of bunnies.  Her key was also the head of a fluffy bunny.  Intrigued, Junjun flipped open the cell phone and held it up a little in the air so Sayumi couldn’t reach.  The screensaver was a picture of a stuffed rabbit.

   “Bunny again?” the panda laughed.  “You know, Ojou-chan, I have a better nickname for you now.  I think I’ll call you Usa-chan.”

   “Give me that!” Sayumi growled, snatching her phone away and tucking it away inside her uniform pocket, blushing.  “And don’t you try to be familiar with me, low-class.”

   “Ouch, what’s with that social status excuse again?” Junjun smirked.  “I just like making new friends, that’s all.”

   “You mean new friends with benefits,” Sayumi growled.  “I hear what those girls talk about in class.  And it’s repulsive!  You’re the type of person that doesn’t care who is in bed with you, as long as it’s another girl.  It’s disgusting!”

   “Hey, they may be friends with benefits but we’re not sex friends.  You’re going overboard there, Usa-chan.” 

   Junjun pouted as she took a step closer to the new girl.  Sayumi backed away until she hit the wall.

   “Don’t come closer!”

   “Were you jealous of those girls, Usa-chan?” Junjun smirked.  “If you want, I can become your friend too…”

   “As if!”

   Sayumi raised her right hand as if to slap the panda’s face but Junjun grabbed her wrist before she could do so. The bunny struggled to break free but the yankii was obviously stronger; she leaned in close to her ear and whispered.

   “Relax, Usa-chan, it was a joke,” she chuckled.  Then, her voice grew more serious.  “But I suggest you don’t make me angry.  There’s a limit to my patience.”

   Junjun smirked and nibbled the new girl’s ear gently as she lightly flicked her tongue over Sayumi’s skin.  The bunny gasped as she pushed the taller girl Unconsciously, her free left hand flew up and slapped Junjun across the face.  Then, without another word, she ran down the hallway, down the stairs, and disappeared. 

   The panda rubbed her right cheek that was turning red now.  Her two kouhais appeared behind her.  Aika whistled.

   “Looks like you just got rejected, Jun-senpai,” she snickered.  “I’m sorry, but that was a major burn.  The girl’s got spunk.”

   “Well, we can’t have the rejection just lying there,” Junjun grinned, flexing her jaws.  “It ruins my record.”

   “You mean your record of getting every girl you ever hit on?” Linlin questioned.  “You know, I’m still not sure if that’s something to take pride in.”

   “Aside from my record,” Junjun continued, “the new girl is interesting.  I think I’m the loser in our little battle today…”

   But I won’t lose next time, Usa-chan.  Rabbits are fast; but once they get caught, they can never escape.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That took a while; sorry about that... I got a little nap in today, and hopefully, I'll get some more sleep during the weekend :D

I'm actually quite relaxed at the moment cuz I took a REALLY long hot bath today. It was practically like a spa :twothumbs

Anyways, I haven't done you guys any justice but feedbacks are still appreciated... XD

Wow... Jun needs some ice for that burn! XD But dang, she's so manly. :D She's acting like how any other players (guys) would act. :P I don't think Sayu truly hates Jun. Part of it, she's just playing hard to get. :roll:

Yay! We need to resume the construction of TakaGaki relationship! :mon squee:

Haven't commented on this story for a while. And just wanted to say, don't feel pressured or demoralised by the lack of comments. You still have your readers :)

Now. SayuJun....well, to be honest they're not a pairing that really captures my attention but I am amused by how snarky Sayu is so far. And Junjun the player is a nice change from her moody character in Kokoro no Uta.

Can't wait for the TakaGaki interaction. Again, not my favourite pairing usually, but teacher-student relationship is just too hot to ignore :lol: It would be an interesting relationship to see progress, how they would fight their feelings considering the moral implications of a teacher pursuing a relationship with a student, what had happened in Ai's past and how much of an impact it would have on their relationship....and so on.
And I can't forget TanaKame. Eri has dug herself such a big hole...how is she going to work her way out of it? :D

Jajajaja Poor Jun~   but It's just like my mom says...

"Si quieres Celeste.... que te cueste"

Translate: "If you want Sky Blue, You will have to suffer"... I know.. it doesn't make sense...
But It make sense in Spanish XDDDDDDDD

And what's up SarangAi =D How are you..? Hope a little better... and less stressed =D

The fic is great =D give that TakaGaki xD

Chapter 9


Quote
The orange-and-brown plaid collar shirt that she wore over her yellow t-shirt matched well together
Pikappika! I love her outfit and her performance  :heart:

Quote
“You are innocent,” Eri said, resting her elbows on the table to lean in a little closer. “And you are cute.”
Whoa! Go turtle  :onioncheer:

Quote
She continued on with the careful cutting until the fork broke through the chewy outer part and into the sweet inner part. 
Just like the kitty's character  :love:

Quote
Eri reached for the fork but Reina took it away, and then held it towards her again.
Lovely  :D Oh yeah, they're having a date  :inlove:

Quote
She licked off the powder with the tip of her tongue, causing the turtle to blush again. 
:shocked Reina's turn   :cow:

Quote
Best Couple Contest!
:grin: <-- my reaction when my thought landed on Eri  XD

Quote
Your mission is to run a lap around the block as fast as you can and try to get within the top five.
That's peanuts for our Pretty Boy  :D

Quote
“All boyfriends ready?”
Oh Eri  XD

Quote
Eri’s cheeks stayed a  pink as she constantly felt overly aware of the kitty dangling on her left arm.
:grin:

Quote
“Uh… just give me a minute,” Reina mumbled, looking panicked.  “I’m thinking…”
:lol: I did not expect that  XD

Quote
“No!  It was… it was cute but… just don’t do it in public again…”  All those people are looking at you now with different eyes.  I don’t like that!
Aww, the turtle's jealous  :wriggly:

Quote
“Your trial,” Airi started, smiling, “is to kiss each other!”
:rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl: Jackpot for our Pretty Boy

Quote
“And I didn’t want to kiss my girlfriend in front of all these people when I wasn’t sure if we were even comfortable kissing at all.  I won’t do anything that Reina will regret.”
Aww  :wub:




Chapter 10


Quote
“Uh... did it involve the cake?”
:lol:

Quote
  “That’s just you being an aho, Kameha.”
:lol: I love you Risa

Quote
“Or maybe I’m just seeing an average girl in love~” the turtle cooed.  “That’s a simpler explanation.”
Hit right on the spot!



Chapter 11


Quote
the teachers didn’t bother with them as much as they did while Reina was in power
Now I'm curious

Quote
But Junjun held up one hand and shook her head, indicating that she was going on this “mission” alone.
Very cool

Quote
“Hi,” Sayumi said.  She pulled her arm out of Junjun’s grasp.  “Good-bye.”
XD

Quote
Unconsciously, her free left hand flew up and slapped Junjun across the face.
Ouches



Next chapter please  :D

@kano-chan: Sayumi's character is just always so bad, isn't it? XD

@aussie: yeah, I tried to make Jun seem a little less depressing this time XD ANd I didn't forget about TanaKame, they're still the maing couple.  :D

@Haruka: ooh I like that quote! I should tell that to my younger cousin, maybe she can use it in her Spanish class or sumthing... :lol:

@kRisZ: whoo~ nice to hear from you :D I always like reading your quote-by-quote comments :twothumbs


update two days in a row? WOW :cow:
but it's only because it's the weekend :nervous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 12

   Risa sighed as she opened her wooden bento box.  Each section of the bento was filled with delicious food that the bean had taken the effort to make that morning.  In the largest section was the rice with a single umeboshi on top.  The other sections contained side dishes, such as tonkatsu, beans, salad, and some fruits.  It was a rather colorful and eye-catching bento; Risa was a good cook, just like her mother.

   The bean looked around her surroundings.  She was sitting on the grass under a large tree in the school courtyard.  A couple of other students were lingering around or eating lunch with their friends on a bench or by the fountain.  Normally, the bean would eat lunch with her turtle friend, but Eri had been caught sleeping in class again and had to do extra credit for the math teacher to not lose points off her grade.  So unfortunately, Risa was left alone to eat lunch by herself.

   The bean shifted her legs and tucked them to the side.  She could imagine Eri begging for the umeboshi on top of her rice right about now.  Too bad everything was silent.  Risa never knew what a sad feeling it was to eat alone.

   “Is this spot taken?”

   Risa looked up at the person who had just spoken; she tried to make out the woman’s face through the sun behind her.  Iinchou’s homeroom teacher was smiling down at her, as she tucked a loose strand of hair behind her ear.  She was holding a clear plastic bag.

   “Not today,” Risa muttered, looking down at her untouched bento.

   “May I sit?” Takahashi-sensei asked carefully.  She was honestly giving her student that choice.  She knew Risa wasn’t too fond of her yet, so she didn’t want to overwhelm her.

   “Douzo,” Risa answered, indifferently.  She wasn’t too annoyed by the new teacher now.  In fact, she was actually quite curious about what they talked about in their previous conversation.  But most of all, Risa just didn’t want to eat alone.

   Ai sank down to the grass next to the teenager, making sure to sit not too close but not too far either.  She was wearing a white button-down blouse with a knee length pastel-pink skirt and flats.  Her brown wavy hair was tied into a side ponytail. 

   “You look younger without the suit,” Risa remarked. 

   “Normally, that would be a good comment,” Ai laughed.  “But coming from you, Gaki-san, I’m not sure if I should be happy or not.  You want a mature teacher, right?”

   “I want a teacher who knows what she’s doing,” the class representative corrected.  “And… you know what you’re doing… I think.”

   “I hope so too,” Sensei chuckled. 

   The older woman then opened the plastic bag and took out a wrapped onigiri from the school convenience store.  She peeled off the wrapper and said, “Itadakimasu” before she bit into the rice ball.  Risa watched her teacher for a while, still thinking about the debate between “good” and “bad”.  Sighing, the bean finally turned to her own bento.  She picked up her chopsticks and quickly mumbled, “Itadakimasu”.  She then took a piece of tonkatsu to her mouth and started to chew. 

   “Uwa~ Gaki-san!” Takahashi-sensei gasped, discovering the bean’s lunch.  “That’s a really impressive bento!  Did your mother make that for you?”

   “No, I made it myself,” Risa replied.  “My mom goes out to work early in the morning, so she doesn’t have time to make a bento.”

   “You made this?” Ai breathed again.  “That’s amazing!  It looks really delicious.”

   “Um… Thank you,” Risa answered awkwardly, not knowing what else to say.  “Do you… uh… want to try it?”

   “May I?” Sensei smiled, as though Christmas had come early. 

   Risa nodded and picked up a tonkatsu between her chopsticks.  She held it up for Ai to eat before she realized what she was doing.  She was feeding her teacher!  It was so weird yet… she had done it so naturally. 

   Sensei gently held Risa’s hand and brought it closer to her face as she took the food into her mouth.  Risa blushed a little as she quickly lowered her hands.  Ai chewed slowly as a satisfied expression started to appear on her face.

   “Oishii~” she sighed.  “You’re a very good cook, Gaki-san.”

   “Ah… um… Arigatou gozaimasu…” the bean mumbled.  What’s happening to me?  Why is my face starting to feel hot?

   “I wish I could cook as well as you,” Ai sighed, returning to her own onigiri.  “It would save me from all these instant foods.”

   “You can’t cook?” Risa asked, looking up.

   “Only simple things, like rice,” Ai laughed.  “It’s actually kind of embarrassing, considering I’m living alone and I’m already in my twenties… But I just never got to learn.”

   “Is that why you have convenience store lunch?” Risa asked, referring to the onigiri.

   “Yes,” Takahashi-sensei sighed.  “It’s either this or bread.  I felt like eating rice today.”

   Sensei took a bite out of her food again as she looked straight ahead, observing the cliques of students in the courtyard.  Risa stared at her teacher’s face for a while.  After looking closely, she was indeed quite pretty; no wonder the boys were all gaga over her.  And she was nice too, which was why the girls found it hard to hate her… 

   Or maybe I’m just seeing an average girl in love~, Eri’s voice echoed in the bean’s head.  That’s a simpler explanation.

   What am I thinking about right now? Risa thought, gasping. Why am I remembering what Eri said?  I don’t like Sensei like that; she just seems like a respectable enough person now.  And I don’t even like girls…

   Wait. Eri was right on that part though; I don’t even know if I’m straight or not!  Does that mean I really could be…?

   Risa shook her head like a mad person, trying to chase away all the overlapping thoughts in her head.  Ai raised an eyebrow at the bean’s curious action, but soon just smiled. 

   “You’re an interesting person, Gaki-san,” she chuckled.

   “Sorry, I’m just… uh… tired,” Iinchou quickly said.  “Um… Sensei?”

   “Yes?”

   “Can I ask you a question?”

   “You can ask and I’ll try to answer,” the teacher grinned.

   “Why do you say you’re a bad person?”

   The smile disappeared from Ai’s face.  Instead, she looked very tired now. 

   “That’s not something you need to know, is it?” she said softly.

   “It’s been bothering me,” the bean insisted, “because I think Sensei’s a good person.  But… you yourself don’t think so.”

   “I don’t,” Ai answered, “and I have a good reason.”

   “And that is?”

   “I don’t think I want to tell you,” the teacher smirked.  “We’re finally on good terms now, Gaki-san, let’s not go too deep into each other’s thoughts.”

   “If I prove to be a closer… person… to you,” Risa said, from lack of a better word, “will you tell me someday?”

   “… You’re really curious about this, aren’t you?” Sensei raised an eyebrow.

   “I know there’s something more than what I see,” Risa replied.  “I can tell.”

   “Sharp girl,” Ai chuckled.  “Alright.  If you prove to be a closer friend, I’ll tell you someday.”

   “In that case,” Risa grinned, happy that her teacher took the bait, “would it be alright for me to make you a bento every school day?”

   “You’re really desperate to know my secret, aren’t you Gaki-san?” Takahashi-sensei laughed, surprised by the bean’s words.  “You would go that far?”

   “Well, it’s not just to know your secret,” Risa hesitated.  “It’s not healthy to always eat convenience store food.  You need some home cooking too, once in a while…”

   She didn’t really mind making her teacher an extra bento while making her own in the morning.  It didn’t seem like it would be much of a chore.  After all, there was something Risa was oddly curious about now, for whatever reason, and only Sensei could tell her.  Besides that, Risa just wanted to make the teacher… happy, somehow.  She would smile after she gets the bento, and that would somehow satisfy Risa.  Was there a word for this kind of feeling?

   “I would truly appreciate it if you do that for me, Gaki-san,” Ai smiled warmly.  “But you don’t have to go through the trouble to do that.”

   “It’s no trouble at all,” Risa insisted.  “You should worry about your health more, Sensei.  I’ll bring you a bento starting tomorrow, okay?”

   “Only if you wish,” Takahashi-sensei chuckled.  “Thank you.”

   The teacher reached out and ruffled Risa’s short hair; the student cringed a bit, not fond of being babied.  But she didn’t stop Sensei or push her hand away.  Just like last time, Takahashi-sensei’s touch felt gentle and warm.  Was she getting used to this already?  Yabai…

I'm working on the next TanaKame chapter at the moment, and I planned out everything until Ch. 19 now XD

Takagaki :wub: I'm still wracking my brain to figure out why Ai thinks she's a bad person. I think I've come up with quite a few theories, all of them more radical than the last, but I suppose I'll just have to wait until you reveal the true reason. I just have a feeling I'll be waiting a while, chapter wise.

I so love seeing how Risa's falling for her Sensei, one pat on the head and little action at a time.

Chapter 11: Ha, I love how Jun is sweet and Kind to everyone in the school and that half the school has a crush on her but she act's tottaly different infront of Sayu! Even so in the classroom all the girls side with Jun over Sayu, obviously Sayu isn't making any friends, I wonder if Jun will end up showing her, kind side to Sayu in the end and that Sayu's impression of Jun will change becasue of it

On that note, I wonder why Jun act's so differently towards sayu, is Jun just finding it amusing to anger Sayu because of her ideas that most the girls at the school are low class? is is it simply because Jun like playing the 'bad girl' with someone like Sayu, Or perhaps this isJun goes after girls she like, I suppose time will tell.

Chapter 12: Aww Poor Risa missing Eri  :cry:

Gaki getting all hot under the collar because Ai is praising her  :wub: Gaki keeps on telling herself that she dosn't like Ai but the morse she says it the closer they get!

I wonder what Ai's secrect is? Gaki seems to really want to know, it's sweet how she offers to make Ai lunch everyday to find out and comes up with some other stupis resons other than it's becasue she want's to make Ai happy  :lol: I wonder how close 'friends' they will have to be before Ai tells her?  :wub:

UPDATE! :cow:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 13

   “Call everybody and tell them we’re having a group outing today,” Junjun ordered the other panda as she took out a cigarette and pushed it inside her mouth.

   “Aw, do I have to call?” Linlin complained, taking out her cell phone.  “Can’t I just mass text everybody instead?”

   “Do whatever you need to do to get in touch with every single one of my girls,” the yankii rephrased, sighing.  “We’re going to meet up at the park, and we’ll all do something fun together.”

   “What’s with the sudden outing, Senpai?” Aika questioned.

   “I don’t know, I felt bored,” Junjun shrugged.  “It’s been a while since the whole gang met up.  Since a couple of us are in different schools, it’s hard to stay bonded.”

   “Okay, I texted everyone,” Linlin announced, slapping her cell phone shut.  “By the way, Jun-senpai, you know we’re still in the front field of the school, right?”

   “Yeah, what about it?”

   Linlin pointed to the cigarette in Junjun’s mouth to answer as Aika nervously looked around.  It was the end of the school day, so there were a lot of girls leaving Morning Gakuen for the day.  The three girls were standing near the gate wall, planning what they were going to do after school.

   “It’s not lit yet,” Junjun reassured.  “The teachers are easy on me for something like this.”

   “Hey, look over there!” Aika suddenly said, jabbing a finger towards the school entrance.  “It’s Reina-senpai!”

   The two pandas turned to the front door to see a petit girl with long straight hair, walking out of the building. She had a black headband with a small bow on it.  She was walking towards the front gate, ready to go home like the rest of the students.

   “We should ask her to join us today,” Linlin suggested.  “The others will be happy to see Tanaka-senpai again too!”

   “Not a problem with me,” Junjun grinned.

   “I’ll go get her!” Aika volunteered.  She started to shift into her sprint mode before a different voice called the name of her victim.

   “Reina!”

   “Aika, wait!”

   The yankii leader stopped her underdog just in time to watch Reina’s lips grow into a smile.  The petit girl skittered over to the front gate where the person who had called her name stood.  It was a lanky boy wearing baggy jeans with high-top sneakers.  He was wearing a navy blue sweater that was a couple sizes bigger than what he should actually wear.   He had a red cap on, which hid most of his face but not all; his eyes were a little too big to be a boy’s as well as his skin being too white.

   “Isn’t that the boy we saw before at the park?” Linlin remarked.

   Junjun and the other two girls watched as Reina said something to the boy who said something back while scratching his head.  The kitty’s smile grew bigger then, as her cheeks blushed slightly pink.

   “Is Reina-senpai… blushing?” Aika gasped.  “That’s not something you see every day.”

   “And as it is such a rare occasion,” Junjun grinned, “we’re just going to leave them alone today.”

   “What? Why?” Linlin complained.  “I want to go meet the boy…”

   “Me too!” Aika argued.  “I’m curious about the person who finally melted Reina-senpai down!”

   “You know we’ll get another chance sooner or later,” Junjun said.  “We’ll just leave for today.  After all, she looks really happy right now… She deserves some of that, doesn’t she?”

   “… I guess…” Aika and Linlin sighed together.

   “Don’t worry,” the head panda smirked.  “We’ll get a chance to tease them later…”

**  **  ** 

   “Eri!” Reina exclaimed, running up to the turtle.  “Did your school end already?”

   “I wanted to leave a little early,” Eri grinned.  She had sneaked out of gym class at the last ten minutes and had quickly changed to run right over to Morning Gakuen.

   “Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?” Reina raised an eyebrow, thinking of her silenced cell phone in her backpack.

   “I wanted to surprise you,” Eri answered again, shrugging.

   “So, why are you here?” Reina asked.

   “I… um… wanted to see you…” the turtle answered, mumbling this time as she scratched her head.

   The kitty stared for a while before bursting into giggles.  She could feel her cheeks feeling a little warmer, but it wasn’t embarrassment.  It wasn’t anything uncomfortable either.  It was more like… bliss.  This boy had come to pick her up at school because he wanted to see her.  Well, that was certainly something new.

   “Not bad at all, pretty boy,” Reina grinned.  “Alright, you won me over for the rest of the day.  What are we going to do?”

   “Well, actually… I didn’t have anything specific in mind,” Eri mumbled, scratching the back of her head again.  “I mean, I felt like anywhere was fine… I just… uh… wanted to see you.”

   This made the kitty blush again as the turtle’s cheeks also turned soft pink.  The ex-yankii smiled as she looked down at her feet for a while, trying not to seem too overjoyed.  She cleared her throat and looked up.

   “Well, I guess we can just walk around the shopping district or something,” Reina said, keeping her voice nice and even.  “Let’s go.”

   “Sounds good,” Eri agreed. 

   As the shorter girl turned and started to walk out of the gate, the turtle quickly followed behind, trying to walk as much like a boy as possible.

**  **  ** 

   “So what do you think?” Reina asked, holding up two different dresses in front of herself.  “Beige or pink?”

   “For that dress, I think beige looks better,” Eri said sincerely.  “I really think the pink is a little to electric for that kind of outfit…”

   Reina raised an eyebrow at the turtle’s fashion sense as Eri gasped, realizing how casually she had spoken.

   “But what do I know?” she quickly said, laughing nervously.  “I mean, guys don’t know anything about this… and I’m a guy… so I don’t know anything… about this… ha-ha…”

   “Uh-huh…” Reina smirked, merely intrigued by Eri’s awkward behavior, but not really suspecting much.   “I’m going to go try this on.”

   The yankii turned and walked towards the changing rooms with a bunch of other outfits that she had already picked out.  The turtle followed right behind her, trying to put as much swagger into her walk as possible.  The two teenagers were inside a women’s clothing store that Reina had been drawn to while they were walking down the streets.  Eri had to resist the urge to pick up some of the clothes herself, since they were so pretty but she was a boy at the moment.  Reina entered one stall and closed the curtains as Eri stood outside, leaning against the wall across the booth.

   “You were right, Eri!” the kitty called from the other side of the curtains.  “Beige is a more a suitable color for this kind of dress.”

   “Are you done changing?” Eri asked.

   “Yeah… but there’s a problem,” Reina said.  The curtain suddenly shifted open, revealing the shorter girl with her hands over her chest, trying to hold the dress up.  She turned around and Eri almost had a nosebleed, for she revealed her bare back with her white bra showing.  “I can’t reach the zipper.  Can you close the dress for me?”

   “I, uh… um… sure, yeah… uh… yeah…” Eri stammered, slowly walking closer to Reina. 

   She reached for the zipper that was near the petit girl’s waist and slowly pulled it up, trying to prevent it from getting stuck.  Her eyes immediately started to explore the flawless skin of the kitty’s smooth back.  She also couldn’t help but stare at the bra hook a little.  She pulled the zipper all the way up before attempting to compose her face in front of the girl she liked.

   “Thanks,” Reina smiled. 

   “No problem,” the turtle mumbled, adjusting the cap on her head.

   “Are you feeling alright?” Reina asked.  “Your face looks a little red.”  She reached out and cupped Eri’s cheek, which only made her temperature rise higher.  “Oh my gosh, you’re burning up!  Do you have a fever?”

   “No, I’m fine, Reina,” Eri quickly said, backing away a little before she could seriously lose herself.  “It’s nothing.  It’s just a little stuffy in here, that’s all.”

   “It’s not stuffy in here,” Reina contradicted.  Then, a smirk slowly spread across her lips.  “Unless… you’re not sick and you’re just blushing!”

   “Why would I blush?” Eri denied, trying to make her voice sound even and failing miserably at it.

   “You tell me; I don’t know how the minds of boys these days work,” Reina grinned mischievously.  “So why?  Was it the fact that I was so close to you?”

   The kitty started to walk closer and closer to the turtle who slowly backed away to the wall with wide eyes.  Reina licked her lips a little before continuing, as did Eri who swallowed hard.

   “Was it the fact that I asked you to help me get dressed?” the petit girl said. “Or was it just the fact that my back was bare for only you to see?  Was it my skin?  Or maybe it was even my bra, huh?”

   At this point, Reina’s face was only an inch away from Eri’s face.  The turtle held her breath as she took in the ex-yankii’s flowery scent.  She swallowed again as her cheeks blushed.  Reina smirked.

   “Did it turn you on, pretty boy?” she whispered.  “You have to hold out longer than that.”

   Reina winked before she giggled and went behind the curtains again to change back to her uniform.  Eri’s legs gave out as she sank down to the floor, breathing heavily.  She put her hands over her cheeks; the heat was practically irradiating off her skin.  She was completely wrapped around the kitten’s wasn’t she?

   What do I do? Eri thought.  How am I supposed to keep quiet about my feelings while even hiding my gender if she keeps on flirting with me?  … Wait a minute.  She’s flirting with me.  Does that mean she likes me too?

   “Let’s go get something to eat,” Reina suggested, bursting out of the changing stall.  Eri flew back up to her feet again and scratched her head, trying to look casual.  The ex-yankii laughed.  “That was major fail, pretty boy.”

   “Sorry,” Eri apologized.

   “It’s okay though,” Reina smiled, “because it was cute.”

   Cute! Eri thought.  She thinks I’m cute!  That’s a good thing, right?

   “Let’s go get some dinner,” Reina suggested again.  “It’s almost time anyway.  Just something simple, like a burger.”

   “Whatever you want, I’ll do,” Eri grinned.  Absolutely whatever you want.

**  **  ** 

   “You know, I can pay for my own food,” Reina grumbled, following Eri out of the fast food place.  “I have my own money.”

   “I know you do,” Eri said, rolling her eyes.  “But I wanted to pay for our meal this time.  Do you mind?”

   The two students had just finished their quick dinner at the nearest fast food place.  They had both ordered a meal with burgers and drinks.  The turtle had insisted on paying for both meals while the kitty furiously argued back. But in the end, the “boy” had prevailed over the girl.

   “I guess not…” the ex-yankii mumbled.  “But you bought the ice cream last time too.  Next time, I’m buying.  I’m an independent girl and I don’t need a man to depend on!”

   Well, I’m not a man so your philosophy doesn’t apply to me, Eri thought, smiling.  “Suit yourself.”

   “It’s getting late,” Reina sighed, checking her cell phone.  “I should go home before it gets dark.”

   “Okay,” Eri said, trying to hide her disappointment.  “I guess… I’ll see you next time?”  She knew Reina wasn’t a fan of giving out her address.

   “Yeah…” the kitty answered.  “Text me?”

   “Definitely,” the turtle nodded. 

   Then, Eri turned around and started to walk away, resisting the urge to look back and feel sad all over again.  But before she was even five feet away, something grabbed her hand and spun her around again.

   “Hey,” Reina started, hesitating a little.  “Um… do you want to… uh… come over for a while?  To my place?”

   “I thought it wasn’t easy getting a girl’s address,” Eri grinned, recalling the first day they had met.

   “It’s not,” Reina smiled.  “But you worked hard for it.  We can have some tea or something.”

   “Tea sounds nice,” the turtle nodded happily. 

   As Reina smiled in approval, the two teenagers started to walk down the street the same way, side by side.  Eri noticed that the kitty still hadn’t let go of her hand yet, but she didn’t mind.   She only squeezed back just as tightly.

HO! UPDATE! :cow:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 14

   “Come in and make yourself comfortable,” Reina said, taking off her shoes and stepping into her home.

   Eri quickly followed suit and started to look around the quiet house.  Everything was very plain; too plain.  The walls were pure white with no decorations or pictures whatsoever.  Reina turned right into the kitchen, which was also covered with white paint.  It was better than the hallway though, since the wooden cabinets gave some variety in the color scheme. 

   “Shitsureshimasu…” Eri called out carefully.

   “You don’t need to say that,” Reina laughed.  “There’s no one here.”

   “What about your family?” the turtle asked.

   “They live somewhere else,” the kitty answered nonchalantly.  “I live here alone so I can go to Morning Gakuen.  It’s nearer.”

   “Really?” Eri questioned.  “I live alone too.  My parents moved to Yokohama, but I didn’t want to leave Haro Kotogakko.”

   “What a coincidence,” Reina smiled as she put the teapot on the stove.  “But I think I’m in a slightly different situation than you.”

   Before Eri could ask why, the shorter girl started to busily open and close the cabinets in search of the tea bags and cups.  She took them out and placed them on the counter before she turned to the turtle, who was standing by the kitchen door.

   “I’m going to go upstairs and change,” she announced, referring to her school uniform.  “The water is heating, so you can wait in the living room.”

   As the kitty skittered up to the second floor, the turtle made herself comfortable on the living room couch.  Practically everything was white in this house, except for the TV and the glass coffee table.  There seemed to be no hint of color anywhere.  Reina always seemed so fashionable; this was not what Eri had expected at all.

   Eri took off her cap and placed it on the table in front of her.  Only then, she finally noticed a picture frame knocked over next to her cap.  She picked it up carefully and set it upright, and started to look at the photo.  It was a family portrait; there was a solemn-looking man in the back wearing a black suit.  Next to him was a pretty-looking lady wearing a kimono, smiling at the camera.  In front of the two parents was a small toddler, wearing a one piece dress while holding a teddy bear, flashing a toothy smile.

   “That’s when I was seven,” a voice explained, causing the turtle to jump.  “It was right before I entered elementary school.”

   Reina walked over to the couch and sat down while placing two mugs of tea on the table.  She was now wearing a beige knit shirt that fit snugly on her body with a tan mini skirt and knee-length socks. 

   “It seems to be the only picture in your house,” Eri said.  “Why?”

   “You have sharp eyes, pretty boy,” the kitty smiled.  “Kind of surprising; I always thought you were the aho type.”

   “I’m not even insulted by that anymore; I hear it too many times a day… oh wait.”  As the turtle slowly realized that she had just dissed herself, Reina burst into giggles.

   “I knew my impression of you was right,” she smirked, taking a sip of her tea.  “It’s okay though; I kind of like it.”

   Eri blushed as she stared into the family picture for a couple more seconds.  The man in the back seemed so serious compared to the beautiful lady beside him.

   “Is that your father?” Eri asked.

   “Yeah, that’s him,” Reina answered, sighing.  “Papa looks real serious there… but he’s actually a nice man.  He loved Mama very much.”

   Eri was a little surprised by how the kitty referred to her parents; she seemed too much of a cool type to say “Mama” or “Papa”.

   “Loved?” the turtle questioned, accenting the past tense of the word.

   “Mama passed away a couple years back,” Reina said quietly.

   “… I’m sorry,” Eri whispered.

   “It’s okay,” the petit girl sighed, sipping her tea.  “It was hard back then… it was harder on Papa though.  I don’t deserve the pity.”

   “Why would you say that?”

   “… I’ve been a very bad person, Eri,” Reina said after hesitating for a while.  “I’ve been a bad girl, a bad student, a bad daughter.”

   “Don’t say that,” the turtle disagreed.  “I don’t know what you did in the past, but don’t beat yourself over it.”  What’s with everyone and the concept of being a bad person these days?

   “No, it’s different with me,” the ex-yankii denied, shaking her head.  “You… do you remember when I told you that I think my case in living alone is different from your case?”

   “Yes…?”

   “In your situation, you’re living here because you argued with your parents who wanted to take you along with them.  In my situation… it’s more like I got kicked out.”

   “Why?”

   “…Because I’m the one who killed Mama.”

   Reina turned away and bit down on her lips, trying to hold the tears back.  She paused for a while, wondering if she was doing the right thing by telling this boy her story.  Eri sat and waited patiently, giving the kitty a choice in whether she wanted to continue or not.  Finally, Reina sighed and met eyes with the turtle next to her.

   “I used to be a delinquent,” she confessed.  “A Fukuoka yankii, if you will.  I would cut school, go to clubs, smoke… and anything else that might be illegal for underage people…”

   Reina stopped for a while and examined Eri’s face, who kept a firm mask on to reveal no emotions.  Deciding that she wasn’t being judged, the kitty continued.

   “To make a long story short, I got caught by the police once.  Mama was on her way to pick me up, and got into a car accident.  She died then and there.  Papa may be a workaholic and a solemn man, but he truly loved Mama, and he was really upset.  He suggested that I go to a private school in Tokyo, even though there were private schools in Fukuoka too.  He never blamed me directly, but I know he loathes me for what I did to Mama.  I guess we both just needed to get away from each other for a while.  So for the first time in my life, I obeyed him without any complaints.”

   “… Do you talk to your father now?” Eri asked carefully.

   “Rarely,” Reina answered, gulping some more of the tea down to calm herself.  “We phone each other once in a while, about the house fees and stuff.  He pays for all of my expenses; I guess I’m kind of a rich girl.  But I was never the princess type.  I was never who Mama wanted me to be.”

   The ex-yankii laughed softly as she rubbed her temples.  Eri watched the girl next to her, who was trying not to break down.  She thought about what she had just heard, and tried to organize the information.  Reina had been a yankii.  She blames herself for her mother’s death.  Her father apparently blames her too, which is why he sent her to Tokyo to live by herself…

   “You love them,” Eri smiled.

   “What?” Reina asked, confused.

   “Your parents,” Eri rephrased.  “You love them.”

   “… Do I?”

   “If you were such a bad daughter and a delinquent, like you keep making yourself out to be,” the turtle explained, “you wouldn’t be beating yourself over such family complications right now.  You loved your mother.  So you want forgiveness.”

   “… Do I?” Reina asked again, in all sincerity.

   “From the way I see it,” Eri continued, “you and your father are avoiding the subject of your mother altogether.  You have to talk to him about it.”

   “… I don’t know,” the kitty hesitated.  “I don’t deserve to…”

   “You have to face him someday,” Eri smiled warmly, “because you love your Papa too.  As much as you loved your Mama.”

   Reina stared at the boy next to her; he had such a gentle expression, that it comforted the kitty just by looking him.  She smiled a little as she put her tea mug down and leaned her head against the couch.  She turned sideways and continued to look at the turtle.

   “Thanks, Eri,” she said.  “It helps just to know that someone cares.  It’s funny how I can say all this to you right now; only my closest friends know about my past.”

   “I’m glad to be in on your secret then,” Eri grinned, truly happy that this girl had confided in her.  She was glad that she could see a different side to Reina.

   “It doesn’t seem to even bother you that I used to be a delinquent,” the kitty smirked, slowly reverting to her original character.  “Or that I used to smoke… Who knows?  Maybe I even did some drug dealing.”

   “Did you?” Eri asked, her eyes widening.

   “No,” Reina laughed.  “I wasn’t crazy enough to do that.  I just got… violent, at times.”

   “It’s okay,” Eri smiled.  “All that matters to me is the you right now.”

   “… Like I said,” the kitty grinned, “you’re a real aho.”

   “But you like that part of me,” Eri said back.

   “You’re right,” Reina laughed, entertained by the turtle’s wit.  “I do like that part of you.”

   “That’s good,” Eri grinned.  “I like you too.”

   Reina’s head suddenly shot up from the couch as she sat up straight.  She smirked and narrowed her eyes.  Eri could practically feel the kitty’s teasing coming on… whatever it was about.

   “Was that a confession?” Reina giggled.  “You like me?”

   “Huh?” Eri mumbled, blushing.  “I, uh… um… that’s, uh…”

   “Gotcha,” the ex-yankii laughed.  “Relax, pretty boy, I was just kidding.”

   “… Well, I wasn’t!” Eri yelled, suddenly feeling brave.  Who was she trying to kid?  Her feelings had never been as clear as this moment.  She had to go ahead and make a move!  “I… I do like you, Reina.  Not as a friend… as a girl.”

   The petit girl froze in her spot as her eyes grew wide.  She exhaled sharply before her hands went up to cover her mouth.  She was actually blushing!  Eri couldn’t help but laugh at the kitty’s sudden character change; from the bold teenage queen to the shy embarrassed girl.

   “Don’t laugh!” Reina yelled.  “I… I don’t know if I should be happy, or…”  She paused again, before she finally put her hands down.  She looked up and stared straight into Eri’s eyes.  “Do you mind if I try something?”

   “By all means,” Eri said.

   Slowly, Reina inched closer and closer to the “boy” until she was practically on “his” lap.  She slowly reached up and placed her hands on Eri’s shoulders, and started to crane her neck up.  She leaned in closer and closer until her lips were only an inch away from Eri’s before she stopped, still unsure of her actions.  Unable to take the wait, Eri just leaned in herself to kiss the lips of the girl she loved.  Reina quickly backed away, but only slightly.

   “I’m sorry,” she apologized, thinking she had done wrong.

   “No, don’t be,” Eri quickly whispered.

   She leaned in again, this time while cupping Reina’s cheek.  She wound her other arm around the small girl’s waist.  Her lips worked slowly against the kitten’s mouth, who started to loosen up more from her stiffness.  Reina wrapped her arms around Eri’s neck and pulled herself closer to her, eager to feel more intimacy.  She slowly parted her lips to catch some air, but Eri took the advantage to snake her tongue in.  The ex-yankii moaned softly as she felt her mouth being explored by the new flavor.  But the intruder left through the lips all too soon, leaving Reina breathing hard.

   “Well?”  Eri asked, who was also struggling a little to catch some oxygen.

   “It feels so wrong…” Reina answered, “yet so right.”

   “Um, care to explain?” the turtle smiled nervously.

   “It’s wrong because you’re too good to someone like me,” she chuckled.  “But it’s right because I know how much I want to be with you… how I feel so much at home when I’m with you.”

   “Then don’t think anymore,” Eri insisted.  “You belong with me, and I belong with you.  Isn’t it much easier that way?”

   “That’s so like you to just make it simple as possible,” Reina laughed. 

   “So…” Eri hesitated, “does this mean we’re going out now?”

   The kitten burst into giggles once more.  She placed a quick peck on the turtle’s lips and smiled. 

   “Yeah,” she grinned, a hint of pink returning to her cheeks.  “It does.”

ps- @HARUKA: yeah, you totally smelled it XD

pps- I think the more I'm writing this, I slowly start to forget the fact that Eris is a girl.. ^^;
Oh yeah~  :yossi: :otomerika:

Awww~! Kamei is so understanding! :mon inluv: Hopefully, Reina would be too, when she finds out her lover is a girl. :mon whimper:

I love the confession! It's so cute! :mon lovelaff:

Somewhere in the chapter, I thought they might hug and Reina would find out. But luckily, she didn't. :sweat:

Now, here I am, smiling like an idiot after reading the chapter. :mon heh:

And we have passed the point of no return. As soon a Reina told Eri about her past, the turtle should have come clean too. Well, she probably wouldn't have gotten a kiss. Hmm, kisses or truth? That's a hard one.  :lol: I can so see the biting in the ass from here, but Eri was so sweet. Accepting Reina even after everything was said(how could we expect any less, after all). Poor Reina, living with this guilt.

So, Takagaki next chapter?  :grin:

Chaper 13: It's nice to know that at least Jun figured out what was going on with Reina and 'the guy', Hmm Jun getting the old gang back together, could be intresting to see if anything intresting happens when she does.

Ha poor Eri, Just wantinf to see Reina, you need to have a plan next time Eri!  :lol:

Eri slipping into girl mode with the dresses  :doh: and the bit with the zipper was just  :wub: I think it's quite obvious that Eri cant deal with flirty Reina  :mon blood:

Reina is inviting Eri back for 'Tea' ehh.....  :lol: :mon crazyinlove:

Chapter 14: Poor Eri, Her one chance not to be seen as an Aho and she ruins it  :mon ignore:

I'm amazed at how easily Reina told Eri about her life story, I suppose it shows how much Reina must like and trust Eri and how strong her feelings for Eri must be, even if she dosn't realize it all yet....

Aww Eri's confession was sweet, it even made Reina blush.... :shy1:


   “Then don’t think anymore,” Eri insisted.  “You belong with me, and I belong with you.  Isn’t it much easier that way?”

@fallenxangel: I KNOW I love that damn drama!!! :inlove: :wub:

@oddball: LOL "Tea" :lol: XD


Thanx for the feedback~ :yossi:

unfortunately, the next chapter isn't a TakaGAki, it's one of those boring but necessary cross-section friendship chapters :nervous

I'm trying to go in order of the couples here, and SayuJun was before TakaGaki.... so I think SayuJun is the chapter after the next one :sweatdrop:

I'll try to make everything as interesting as possible though!  But TanaKame IS the main couple here... i promised..  :mon cute:

It has happened. TanaKame are now official. Except they have one major hurdle to overcome before things unravel rapidly. You know, all the gender-bender stories usually allow the 'secret' to make the romance acceptable once the true gender of the bender character is revealed, but since there's another girl in the equation here it's going to be interesting to see how Reina would react :lol:  As long as Reina doesn't call Eri disgusting or anything, even if it is in shock and inadvertently hurt Eri's feelings.

I find it adorable how Aika hero-worships Reina.

@kano-chan: STAY THERE XD

... cuz I got an UPDATE!!  :cow: :yossi: :otomerika:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 15

   “I can’t believe it!” Risa shrilled.  “I think I just heard wrong, Kameha: you and that girl are what?”

   “Shh!  Lower your voice, Risa-chan!” Eri shushed, looking around the chattering classroom.  “This isn’t exactly something to publicize.”

   The turtle leaned in closer to her friend as Risa mirrored her action.  The other students in the room were all busy talking to their own clique of friends, desperate to get in as much gossip and talking as possible before first period started.  Eri was trying to explain to her friend what had happened in the previous night at a certain kitten’s home.

   “But you just told me you and that Reina girl are going out!” the bean growled through her teeth.  “What’d you expect me to do: just say, ‘Ii na~’ and continue doing homework or something?”

   “A girl can wish,” Eri said under her breath.

   “You mean a boy can wish,” Risa shot back.  “Look, Kameha.  I’m happy for you.  I understand that you really like her and this is a big thing for you.  But it seems to me like you’re forgetting the fact that the girl still thinks you’re a boy.  I don’t know about you but that doesn’t spell out the future too well for me.”

   “… Oh my god!” Eri gasped, a terrified expression forming on her face.  “I’m still a girl!”

   “Oh, this is great,” Risa scoffed, rolling her eyes.  “We should celebrate, Kameha.  You’ve had a lot of aho moments but this just tops all of it.  How could you forget your own gender?”

   “It’s not like I actually forgot,” Eri mumbled.  “I mean… since Reina thinks I’m a boy, I actually feel like a boy when I’m with her…”

   “That’s not a good thing, Eri,” the bean sighed, shaking her head.  “That Reina girl is going out with you because she thinks you’re a boy.  What if she’s not interested in girls?  You should’ve told her before you two went on to become more than just friends.”

   “Well, what do I do now?” Eri said, almost on the verge of crying.  “What can I do now?”

   “Hold yourself together, Kameha!” Risa ordered, trying to sound strong for her friend.  “There’s only one thing you can do and that’s to tell the truth.  You can’t go on like this.  You want the girl to accept you as who you are, right?”

   “Of course…” Eri said, biting her nails.  “But what if she hates me after this?”

   “If she truly feels a connection to you as you do to her,” Risa smiled, “I’m sure she’ll find a way to forgive you.”

**  **  ** 

   “Jun-senpai, I really think Tanaka-senpai is sick,” Aika whispered worriedly.

   “Why would you say that?” Junjun whispered back, taking a bite out of her banana.

   “Just look at her!” Linlin chimed in.  “She’s making that face and she just keeps on smiling randomly!”

   The three yankii girls standing by the door continued to stare at the kitten, who was sitting in the classroom.  It was before first period so the students of Morning Gakuen were rowdy with their own business.  But Reina was sitting alone at her desk, staring up at the ceiling with a stupid grin.  Occasionally, she would start sighing or just randomly giggle.  Every time she did that, Aika and Linlin’s expression would get worried even more while Junjun, eating her banana, was completely at ease.

   “Jun-senpai, I can’t take this anymore!” Aika said, almost on the verge of crying.  “Something’s wrong with Reina-senpai!”

   “I agree!” Linlin said, receiving a grateful smile from her girlfriend.

   “Alright, alright,” Junjun mumbled, taking the final bite out of her banana and throwing the peel away.  “Let’s go in.”

   The three girls marched into the classroom while receiving various greetings from the other students.  Junjun dashed in front of Reina and touched her forehead to the kitten’s as though she was about to kiss her.

   “Ohayou, Reina-chan~” she purred, smirking.

   “GAH!” Reina screamed.  She finally broke away from her trance and backed away, only to be caught by a pair of arms into a back-hug.

   “Senpai, you’re okay!” Aika exclaimed.  “I thought you were sick for a moment there!”

   “Why would you think I’m sick?” Reina asked, trying to peel off her kouhai’s arms.

   “Because you were staring at the ceiling like this,” Linlin answered, proceeding to imitate Reina’s goofy grin from before.

   “… Oh…” the ex-yankii mumbled.  “Well, it’s none of your business.  And don’t be too friendly in public; I’m not a part of this gang anymore.  I told you guys that already.”

   “Aw, you’re embarrassed to be lumped together with us delinquents?” Junjun pouted.  “That hurts, Reina.”

   “You know it’s not like that,” the kitten growled.

   “Yeah, yeah, I’m just joking,” Junjun grinned.  “We’ll give you space.  But not before you tell us why you’re so idiotically happy today.”

   “… I’m not particularly happy,” Reina denied, keeping a poker face.

   “Uh-huh~” the tall panda sneered, narrowing her eyes to make the kitten nervous.  “Aika, I think our ex-leader needs some love from her successors…”

   Before Reina could react to Junjun’s subtle orders, the youngest yankii jumped on her back and snuggled in close as Linlin kneeled right beside her and leaned her head on the desk.  Junjun towered over the kitten on the opposite side of her seat.  They all snickered and kept their gaze on her, making Reina gulp.

   “So,” Junjun started, “what exactly happened?”

   “Did you get a good grade on something?” Aika followed up.

   “Did you win the lottery?” Linlin asked, being her random self.

   “Did you get something at a cheap price?” Aika continued.

   “Did you buy the new volume of Vampire Knight?” Linlin squealed excitedly.

   “That reason would only apply to you, Lin,” Junjun smirked, causing the younger panda to blush while Aika giggled.

   “Then what else could it be?” Aika thought out loud, scratching her head.

   “I think I know,” the yankii leader said, smiling mischievously at the kitten, who was still keeping a poker-face.  “You got a boyfriend.”

   Aika and Linlin gasped and whipped their heads toward Reina, who was looking down at her desk now.  She could feel her cheeks growing hotter as she nodded once, wordlessly.  Junjun grinned smugly as Linlin got a dumbfounded look on her face.  Aika squealed and quickly skittered to the front of Reina’s desk and knelt beside her girlfriend.

   “Who is it, senpai?” she questioned, practically bouncing off the floor.  “Who is it?  Who is it?”

   “It’s that pretty boy we saw before in the park, isn’t it?” Junjun guessed again, receiving a shy glare and a nod from the ex-yankii.  “Wow, you admitted pretty fast.  That was a lot easier than I thought it would be.”

   “Congratulations, Tanaka-senpai!” Aika exclaimed, while Linlin broke out of her trance and echoed her girlfriend.  “I’m so happy for you!  You’re so cute when you’re all shy like that!”

   “I am not shy!” Reina argued, finally lifting up her bright red face.

   “This happened last night, didn’t it?” Junjun asked.

   “You’re really starting to creep me out now,” Reina grumbled.  “Do you have the paparazzi on me or something?”

   “No, I’m just super smart,” the tall panda grinned.  “So, what do you like about him?”

   “Well…” Reina mumbled, gazing down at her desk again.  Normally, she wasn’t the type to talk about these kinds of things.  But part of her wanted to show off her new boyfriend.  “He’s really kind… and sweet… kind of spacey at times, but that’s one of his charms…”

   “And his hands are warm…” Linlin said, trying to lead on the kitten.

   “Yeah… and his hugs are nice…” Reina murmured, a slow smile spreading across her lips.

   “And he’s a good kisser…” Junjun murmured.

   “Yeah, he’s a really good kisser… Wait, what?”

   Reina’s head shot up to face the three yankiis, all smirking at her.  Oh, they had gotten her good.

   “He must’ve had experience,” Junjun snickered, “to be that good of a kisser.”

   “No, actually,” Reina said through her teeth, “he doesn’t seem like that type.  I think I’m ahead of him.”

   “Think what you like,” Junjun said, eliciting giggles from her two followers.  “Either way, I’m happy for you.  But I’m kind of surprised too; he really doesn’t seem like your type.”

   “What is my type then?” Reina raised an eyebrow.

   “You used to hang out with more mature guys,” Aika reminded.

   “Yeah, and they usually had a driver’s license,” Linlin pitched in.

   “The really manly type,” Junjun said, “because you believed that since you were so strong, your guy had to be at least stronger than you.”

   “Oh,” Reina said, blinking a couple times.  “I guess I did used to think that way.  It is funny though… Eri really isn’t my type.  He’s too pretty and too girly sometimes… But there’s still something about him that attracts me.”

   “I agree with the girly part,” Aika chimed.

   “He has a nice figure,” Linlin nodded.

   “That was just slightly creepy, Lin,” Reina said, raising an eyebrow.

   “Imagine if he really is a girl,” Junjun teased.  “Now that would be really funny.”

   “Don’t make jokes like that,” Reina scoffed.  “Even though I’m cool about girl-girl relationships because of you three, you know I’m not that type.”

   “Yeah, yeah, I was just joking,” Junjun laughed.  “It was just a scenario.”

   “Well cut the scenarios and return to reality,” Reina said.  “Despite all the pretty aspects of Eri, I’m thankful that he’s a guy.  And he’s perfect that way.”

Well that took an awful long time.  Sorry once again~  :sweatdrop: :nervous
I was gonna have SayuJun next, but I think I'm going to bump up TakaGaki first, then SayuJun.  We had too much Jun in the previous chapter XD

LOL! Kamei forgot that she's a girl? :lol:

Shy Reina is so darn cute! :mon lovelaff: And it made me  :lol: when they got her.

Seeing how Reina can accept girl-girl relationships, I think she would definitely accept Kamei as a girl. And she's still confused about what attracts her to Kamei so that adds up! It's probably because Eriku is so girly and "he" has a nice figure. :P

Likes chapter! :twothumbs

Waits for TakaGaki... :mon cute:

ok... the last part sounds like "ouch" to Eri.
I don't know how she could forget she's a girl  XD so clueless, just like Eri.
Please, don't be so cruel, I hope Reina doesn't be so angry when she find out the true about her "boyfriend".
And personally I don't care if the next chappie is TakaGaki or JunShige I love both of them *-*
Looking forward the next one.

Yay~You finally updated. That was a long wait, but it was worth it. Aww, Reina seems really cute when she's shy. I agree with Gaki that Eri should tell Reina her gender, or at least hint it one way or another.
Jun's gang is so tricky hehe, trying to get Reina to spill more of her secrets. And Jun, that girl must have installed video cameras in Reina's house, man. :lol:


   “Don’t make jokes like that,” Reina scoffed.  “Even though I’m cool about girl-girl relationships because of you three, you know I’m not that type.”

I just hope Reina doesn't do something (in her shock) that ends up hurting Eri more than it should. At the end of the day, it was Reina who made the wrong assumption and gave Eri hope (in a way). No doubt she would be shocked and hurt a little, and it would certainly throw herself into confusion upon learning Eri is actually a girl, but I just hope Reina doesn't hurt Eri too much. Whatever the trouble, I fully expect TanaKame to come through as strong as ever :D

(Or maybe, Jun will find out before Reina and the plot will thicken from there......)

It's seems as though Gaki is less than impressed that Eri has not told Reina that she is actually a girl, Gaki is right though but for some reason I  can't see Eri telling Reina  :banghead:

Jun's pretty perceptive isn't she, I think she had a good idea about what was going on all ready and they way Reina was racting confirmed it for her, I just wonder if she half thinks that Eri is a girl at all?

LinLin thinking Reina was excited over Manga was  :lol:

UPDATE~~ :cow:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 16

   “Kameha, are you sure you didn’t get in trouble with the math teacher again?”

   “Risa-chan, you were sitting right next to me.  I didn’t sleep in class today.”

   The bean shot a frustrated look at her turtle friend, who flashed an innocent smile back at her.  Their homeroom teacher merely laughed softly under her breath as she watched the mini quarrel between her two students.

   Risa had been, for a reason that she herself is not even sure of yet, looking forward to eating lunch with Takahashi-sensei again.  But she had forgotten that she always eats with her best friend when she doesn’t have make-up sessions during the lunch period.  And so, Eri and Risa and Ai were all sitting underneath the large tree in the school courtyard, getting ready to eat their meal.  But for some odd reason, Risa didn’t feel comfortable eating with Eri.  Actually, it was more like she didn't feel comfortable with the fact that Eri was eating with Ai.  The bean refused to believe it was jealousy… just discomfort.

   “It’s okay, Gaki-san, I’ll leave,” Takahashi-sensei chuckled.  “You should eat with your friend.  I’ll go join the other teachers in the cafeteria—”

   “No!” Risa interrupted a little too quickly.  Eri raised an eyebrow while the teacher’s eyes grew wide.  “I mean… all those other teachers are going to bother you again, so it’s not a good idea to eat with them.”

   “Yeah, Sensei,” Eri chimed in with a teasing tone.  She stood up and skittered next to the teacher to link arms with her, much to Risa’s glaring.  “We can all eat together.  Except I don’t know why our dear Iinchou is being all uptight about this…”

   “I am not uptight!” Risa yelled.

   “Sensei, did you see that?” Eri said with mock terror on her face.  “Risa-chan just yelled at me, her best friend!  Kowai~”

   “You know, Kameha, I found a really good recipe for turtle soup last night—”

   “Okay, stop right there!” Ai interrupted, holding up her hands.  “Let’s not get into any food references, shall we?”

   “Yeah, Risa-chan!” Eri said, sticking out her tongue.

   “You too, Kamei-san,” Ai scolded.  “Don’t tease your friend so much like that; you girls are high school students so be more mature!”

   “Hai, Sensei~” Eri chirped.

   “Hai…” Risa grumbled, crossing her arms across her chest.

   “Now cheer up, Niigaki-san,” Takahashi-sensei smiled.  “Lunch period doesn’t last forever.  Let’s start eating.”

   After a couple more seconds of pouting, just for pride’s sake, Risa finally started to unpack her bento from a plastic bag.  Eri opened her own bento box and waited for the rest of her companions to get their lunch out.  The bean took out two wooden boxes and pushed one towards her teacher.

   “The promised bento,” she explained.

   “Thank you so much, Niigaki-san,” Ai smiled.  That made the wrinkle between Risa’s eyebrows relax more; she wasn’t happy yet, but she was a little calmer.

   The teacher opened the bento box and gasped softly.  Eri craned her neck to look inside the lunch box and also chocked on a breath of air.  The bento was elaborately decorated with various colors of side dishes.  The biggest section had the white rice with a single umeboshi and some black sesame seeds sprinkled on top.  In another section, there were rows of ham cut up into the shape of a star.  Next to that was the salad with lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers.  Right beside that was the fried shrimp, all crisp and golden.  In another section, there were chunks of fried chicken with sweet and sour sauce glazed over the top.  The dessert section contained apples cut up into the shape of rabbits.

   “Niigaki-san, you really outdid yourself!” Ai breathed.

   “You never make me a bento like that!” Eri whined.

   “That’s because you can make your own bento, can’t you?” Risa shot back.

   “Yeah, but I’m not as good at it as you…” the turtle pouted.

   “We can share this together, Kamei-san,” Ai laughed.

   “Sensei, yasashii ne~” Eri smiled, her eyes sparkling.  “You’re so nice!  I knew I liked you from first sight.”

   “I’m hungry, let’s eat,” Risa interrupted.  Somehow, it kept on bothering her how Eri was sitting so close to Takahashi-sensei like they had been life-long acquaintances while she was sitting a little further across from them.  She wanted to be closer to them too… she wanted to be closer to Sensei.

   “Itadakimasu~” the three women chanted.  Eri took in a piece of meat from her own lunch and let out a sigh of satisfaction.  Risa slowly took a bite out of fried shrimp while carefully watching her teacher’s reaction to the star-shaped ham.

   “This is really delicious, Gaki-san,” Takahashi-sensei commented.  “I haven’t had food like this in a while.  Thank you so much.”  She smiled and Risa could feel her heart picking up its pace.

   “I-it was nothing,” Risa mumbled.  Why is my heart beating so fast?  Whenever this teacher smiles, why do I suddenly feel happy?  I don’t get it!

   “Sensei!” Eri chirped, leaning even more into the older woman next to her.  “Can I have a taste of Risa-chan’s bento?”

   “Of course, Kamei-san,” Ai smiled.  “What would you like?”

   “This one!”

   Takahashi-sensei picked up the sweet-and-sour chicken and held it out for Eri to eat.  The turtle made eye contact with her friend and smirked a little before eating the chicken right out of the teacher’s chopsticks.  Risa could only watch as she fumed silently.

   She is so doing that on purpose! The bean thought. Kameha, focus on your own girlfriend and stop hitting on my Sensei!  … Wait a minute, did I just say “my” sensei?  What is wrong with me?

   “Ah~ oishii!” Eri exclaimed, chewing and swallowing. 

   “It does taste good, doesn’t it?” Ai chimed in.

   “It’s really delicious,” Eri grinned.  “I knew Risa-chan was a good cook, but I think the bento is even more delicious today because she made it for you, Sensei.”

   “Kameha, what are you saying?” Risa yelled, feeling her cheeks burning up.  What is wrong with that aho turtle?

   “Is that so?” Takahashi-sensei laughed.  “That makes me kind of happy.”

   It makes her happy? Risa thought, a tiny smile creeping onto her lips.  Does that mean she…?

   “Risa-chan, you put a lot of effort into this,” Eri continued on, smirking a little.  “Sensei must be really special to you—”

   Before Risa could completely explode on her friend, the turtle’s cell phone started to ring.  She flipped open the phone and realized it was a text message from her own special person.  Eri smiled to herself and stood up.

   “Sorry, I have to make a call,” she announced.  “I’ll be back in a couple minutes.”

   Thank you, Reina what’s-your-name, Risa thought.

   “Keep your eye on the clock,” Ai warned.  “Lunch period doesn’t last forever.”

   “I will,” Eri answered. 

   As the turtle started to leave, Risa shot her a glare that said, “You are so dead when I catch you later”.  Eri responded with a smile that said, “I think I did you a favor.  You don’t know your own feelings too well”.

   After Eri disappeared out of sight, the teacher and the class representatives ate in silence for a couple more minutes.  When Risa finally decided to speak up, both women were already chewing on the rabbit-apples.

   “Sensei, you just moved here, right?” she asked.  “I mean, seeing that you’re a new teacher and all.”

   “Yes, I used to live in Fukui,” Ai answered.  “I just moved into an apartment near downtown; I have to take a bus or the subway to get here.”

   “Are you all settled in and stuff?” Risa asked.  Wow, I’m asking really stupid questions.  But I just want to keep talking to her…

   “Not quite yet, actually,” the teacher admitted.  “I was planning on going into town after school today to buy some extra supplies I need.  Things like kitchen utensils.  I don’t need much, but I barely have any at the moment.”  She took a bite out of the apple in her hand and sighed.  “I’m just worried about shopping in such a big venue; I don’t really know my way around yet.”

   “I can show you!” Risa offered quickly.  “I mean, I know these areas a little better than you do.  I can help you carry stuff too… if you want.”  I’ll probably have tons of homework, but I still want to spend more time with her…

   “Would you do that?” Ai said happily.  “That would be absolutely fantastic!  Thank you so much, Gaki-san.”

   “It’s not a problem,” Risa mumbled under her breath, feeling her cheeks getting warm again. 

   Giggling a little at the bean’s shy reaction, Ai continued to finish up the rest of the bento.  Risa ate at a slower pace while she watched the beautiful woman sitting across from her.

   Could Eri be right? She thought.  Could it be that I really don’t know my own feelings?  Why am I going so far for this person…?

“Sensei, yasashii ne~” Eri smiled, her eyes sparkling.  “You’re so nice!  I knew I liked you from first sight.”
hm....I sense some jealousy :P

Quote
“Sensei!” Eri chirped, leaning even more into the older woman next to her.  “Can I have a taste of Risa-chan’s bento?”

“Of course, Kamei-san,” Ai smiled.  “What would you like?”

“This one!”

Takahashi-sensei picked up the sweet-and-sour chicken and held it out for Eri to eat.  The turtle made eye contact with her friend and smirked a little before eating the chicken right out of the teacher’s chopsticks.  Risa could only watch as she fumed silently.
More jealousy? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Quote
“Sorry, I have to make a call,” she announced.  “I’ll be back in a couple minutes.”

Thank you, Reina what’s-your-name, Risa thought.
Reina for the day!!! XD

@kurosawa87: she really needs to pick herself up :lol:

@kawaii beam: then continue looking forward to it :P

@xcutex: LOL we all want Gakisan to go make out with her sensei  XD XD

@fallenxangel: ooh~ you caught on! usually it's that pattern... sometimes i flip it around but usually... yeah XD

@Shiawase_Honoo: LOL i don't even know it turtle soup exists :lol:


SO i guess the last chapter was a comedy chapter more than anything... and the "Yell at GAkisan to realize her own feelings" chapter XD

And as fallenxangel has predicted, the next chapter is ShigeJun~ i'm workin on it now :twothumbs

I love the teasing from Kamei! :lol:

I hope Ai-chan is getting hints about Gaki's feelings because of the way she acts. :mon innocent:

I wonder what Reina's phone call for Kamei was about. :dunno:

Yay, I'm looking forward to TakaGaki since they'll be shopping together! :mon squee:

ShigeJun is going to be good! :D

I so love shy Risa. She's usually so outgoing and outspoken, so for her to be so demure, especially towards Teacher!Ai is just..... Cuddle-tastic XD It's so awesome, it deserves a new word. :lol: The Eri teasing parts were great, Risa doesn't even realize how obvious she's being. Somehow, though, I don't think Ai will be oblivious for long. I wonder how long it will take her to fall for the young bean in return? And how long it will take for both to experience some heartache.

Oh, dear! Poor Gaki getting all worked over Ai and getting jealous because of Eri  XD It was nice to see Eri get one over her friend for a change.

Lucky that Reina, sort of came to Gaki's rescue by txt Eri, I think poor Gaki was about to say something silly.....

Thank you  :)

And here's ShigeJun!  I was so sleepy, I didn't really edit/revise that must, so if there are any errors, please let me know :nervous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 17

   Too loud.  The atmosphere, the entire school, all the female students… everything was just loud.  All she wanted was some peace and quiet during lunch period, at least, but that seemed impossible.  The classrooms were noisy with various gossiping.  The courtyard was filled with chatters between friends and couples.  The field was occupied with shouts and cheers of some girls playing and watching a soccer game.  But at least in the front field, the noise was a little further away from the bleachers.

   She sat on the front row seat with her bento clutched to her chest.  She flipped her long black hair behind her back before placing the lunchbox on her lap.  She couldn’t wait to open the bento and see the creation of her kitchen maid for today’s lunch; there was always some sort of reference to rabbits, whether it was the rice or the onigiri or the apples.

   She was starting to get sick of the place already.  All the girls seemed obnoxious and rude; even though Morning Gakuen was a prestigious private school, the students didn’t act so lady-like.  But she was even keener on the fact that the girls were only obnoxious to her.  They all had their own group of friends to be nice to.  Was there something wrong with her or was it the rest of the girls?

   But she had always known she wasn’t a very social girl.  She had tried to make friends in the past, but it never really worked out.  People were usually jealous of her cute face, or scared of being compared to her.  She didn’t want to be nice to those kinds of people anymore; so whenever she opened her mouth, only poisonous words were spat out.  Thus, her already endangered social life had come to be extinct.

   Sighing, the girl quickly shook away her thoughts in her head.  She decided not to think about the school she was stuck in because of her parents, or the fact that she had that stalker on her tail… She shuddered at the memory.

   “Heads up!”

   She looked up in time to see a girl out in the field, wearing the gym uniform pants under her skirt, kicking the soccer ball at full power towards the bleachers.  That girl was… smiling.  And all the other girls around her had the same expression.  They were doing this on purpose.

   She realized it was already too late by the time the ball was shooting towards her.  She hugged the bento to her chest again and shut her eyes tightly, waiting for the pain of the soccer ball to hit her head.  Instead, there was only the sound of the rubber ball hitting skin… but not her skin.

   She opened her eyes to see a tall girl with long black hair, braided into corn roses on one side, who was holding her arm protectively in front with the soccer ball in hand. 

   “Hey, that was pretty dangerous!” she whistled, dropping the ball and shaking her hand out.  The voice was unmistakable.

   “Junjun!” the girl who had kicked the ball yelled, panicking.  “I-uh… um… are you hurt?”

   “Hey, who am I?” the tall panda smirked, putting her hands on her hips.  “I’m Li Chun.  Have you ever seen me get hurt?”

   “Ha-ha… I guess, uh… I guess not,” the girl laughed nervously while her friends also shifted their eyes back and forth restlessly.

   “Usa-chan,” Junjun said, turning her head slightly to look back at the rescued girl, “are you okay?”

   The black haired girl said nothing.  Instead, she frowned and clutched her lunch box even tighter to her chest, if that was even possible.  She tossed her hair and started to walk away from the bleachers.  Junjun scratched her head, whistling.

   “Hey, what’s with that girl?” the soccer player complained.  “That’s why I was trying to teach her a lesson, Junjun!  She has absolutely no manners and is a real bit—”

   “Careful there,” Junjun smiled in a mysterious way.  “I don’t want you or anybody to cause trouble in this school.  The only person who can cause violence around here… is me.”  She winked at the soccer girls in the field and made eye contact with them; it seemed like a friendly gesture but somehow, it sent chills down the students’ spines.

**  **  ** 

   Sayumi continued to walk towards the back of the school building, frustrated.  There was no place in this whole damn place where she could find peace and quiet, was there?  Every single time she thinks she can finally catch a breath, a different thing happens.  Today was definitely not her day.

   And that stalker-player girl was up in her business again!  What was with her anyway?  Why was she bothering her all the time?  And last time, she had even licked her ear…

   The bunny shuddered while thinking about it.  She continued to stomp at a steady pace around the building.  Maybe she could find some peace in the back where there was no courtyard or field or any sort of area that students could gather in. 

   “Hey, wait up!”

   Ugh, it was her again.  That voice was easily identifiable now.  Sayumi could hear her running behind but she didn’t stop. 

   “Leave me alone!” the bunny growled.

   “Don’t I deserve some sort of gratitude for what I did back there?” the voice said, suddenly right behind her.  “That ball could’ve done some serious damage to
your brain.”

   “I never asked for your help!” Sayumi shot back.

   “I still think I deserve some sort of thank you,” the chuckling voice said.

   Suddenly, the black-haired girl could feel someone grabbing her wrist.  She was immediately flipped around and quickly pushed against the wall.  Before she could try to break free, a pair of warm lips quickly overtook her mouth.  Her eyes opened wide; she tried to scream but nothing came out except muffled whimpers.  Not like anybody would come to her rescue anyway; this was Junjun who was kissing her, the supposed cool girl of the school.  And she was only the antisocial new girl in comparison.  So why was she kissing her…?

   The bunny could practically feel the panda’s smile on her lips.  Before Sayumi could do anything, the taller girl’s tongue quickly penetrated her lips and brushed against her own tongue.  The bunny let out more whimpers at this contact but she still couldn’t find a way to move.  The kiss was an unwanted one, but somehow it still felt… warm.  It was soft and gentle, but still stimulated some sort of desire within her.

   She gasped softly as she came back to her senses; Sayumi thought for another second and quickly jabbed her knees up.  But Junjun backed away just in time to avoid the knee-kick.  She smirked as she licked her lips.

   “You taste sweet, Usa-chan,” she murmured.  “Kind of like candy.”

   “How dare you!” Sayumi shrieked.  “You’re terrible!  Why won’t you leave me alone?”

   “Because you’re interesting,” the panda grinned.  “And I’m just really bored.”

   So that’s all I am? The shorter girl thought, clenching her fists.  A toy?  How dare she!  I’m not putting up with that!

   “Say, how about we play a game, Usa-chan?” Junjun proposed.  “It might work out in your favor.”

   “What kind of game?”

   “I challenge you to beat me in a simple battle,” the panda explained.  “Maybe something like who can get a random person’s phone number off the street faster.  If you win, I’ll do whatever you want.  I’ll even stay away from you for the rest of your school years.”

   “… And if you win?”

   “If I win, you have to do whatever I say for an entire day,” Junjun smiled.  “I’d say it’s to your advantage, Usa-chan.  My wish only applies for a day; your wish applies for years.”

   If I win this game against her, Sayumi thought, I’ll finally be rid of her.  I’ll never have to be attacked like I was today…

   “So, how about it?”

   “I’m in,” the bunny said, glaring up at the panda.

   “Great,” Junjun grinned.  “Meet me after school by the gates.  We’ll go into town together.”

   “Fine.”

   The bunny shot one more leer at the delinquent before stomping away.  The panda sighed and swept her hair back behind her ears before licking her lips again.  There was a small whistle from above alone with slow clapping.  Junjun looked up to find her two lackeys, sitting side by side on a tree.

   “Bravo, Jun-senpai,” Aika grinned.  “I’m impressed.  You really have her tied down this time.”

   “And the kiss was pretty charismatic too,” Linlin commented.  “I should try that out one day.”  She smiled at her girlfriend who nudged her shyly.

   “Yada~” Aika giggled.

   “Hey, if you’re going to talk, then stop flirting and come down,” Junjun ordered, smiling at the ridiculousness of it all.  “And don’t climb trees in school.  You’re
not ninjas.”

   “It was Lin’s idea,” Aika laughed at her blushing girlfriend.

   “I had a Naruto re-run marathon last night,” the younger panda said, scratching her head.  “Sorry.”

   “Was that on TV last night?” Junjun questioned.  “I thought it was next week…”

   “Focus, senpai!” Aika said, clapping her hands together.  “I hope you have a plan for this game after school.  You have to win or you won’t get the girl.”

   “And you’ll complain to us all the time about how bored you are again…” Linlin sighed.

   “Come on, girls, have you ever seen me lose a game before?” Junjun smirked.  “This is my turf.  And nobody beats me at my own game.”

That was good~ :twothumbs But why did Jun have to go and tell Sayu that she was "bored"??! :mon scratch: That didn't really help her in getting Sayu, did it? :mon unsure:

I wonder how the game would go. :P :roll: Jun would probably win because Sayu isn't very social, but if Sayu wins, that'll just add more twist and turns. :mon dunno:

Wooohooo! TanaKame next! :on woohoo:

Jun is such a player. :lol: And poor Sayu, it almost sounds like she can't help being a snobby jerk.  XD Somehow, I wanna see Jun make Sayu cry with all her "The only reason I'm interested in you is that I'm bored" talk and then Jun feels bad about it. Of course, she'd have to think of an awesome way to apologize. :pimp: Wonder what you have in store for Tanakmae next? :huhuh

Ah Man! Jun can be pretty cool at times in this fic, and also quite menacing  :panic:

and then she goes from being the cool one to being a bit of a stalker  :angry: Kinda not getting Jun's character at the moment, sometimes she is sweet and kind but around Sayu she is completly different, I wonder if it is just Sayu or has she been like this with all the girls she's gets with? Not liking this part of Jun's character in the fic  :frustrated: I know she say's she is only playinmg with Sayu and things but somehow I think there's more to it then that, hopefully Jun will get to fully appreciate Sayu in time?

Though perhaps Sayu dosn't mind that much after all  :nervous

Cheering on Sayu to get the number first and for Jun to be proper gutted about having to not bother Sayu anymore (as she really likrs her) but then perhaps Sayu will start to miss Jun as well?  :wub:

I see two possibilities. 1) Jun wins like she always does and during that one day Sayu sees something else in Jun and opens up to her; 2) Sayu wins and when she is suddenly deprived of Jun's badgering she starts feeling this emptiness and it will be her turn to start chasing after the panda. Unfortunately for Sayu Jun won't be such a willing player this time around until Jun can't keep up with the pretence :lol:

As for TanaKame. Sigh. Meanwhile in the story.......just tell her already Eri!!

It's not that I don't like Jun, what I was saying was that it seems really out of character for Jun in the fic, perhaps that's the idea but I can't see why she would do this to Sayu, As long as she knows what she's doing I'm content!  :twothumbs

Goodness, I haven't posted in here for a while.
Please excuse the lack of replies I have, for I don't always comment for every single chapter.
Sometimes, I comment when there is something I really have to say about it
This chapter is actually really cute~
Jun is so charismatic with her kiss, and am I sensing that Sayu is slowly giving in?
Well, she did feel warm when Junjun kissed her :)

Can't wait for the future chapters. I'm really curious as to what the game is. ^^

Sorry! I'm in a rush, so no comment replies! But I did read everything and I truly appreciate how you guys are sticking with me!  XD

Things have been quite hectic for me (midterms, research papers, other essays, etc.) which resulted in this severe inactivity, but I'm really am trying!  :sweatdrop: :nervous

Hopefully, this chapter will make you guys feel better?  :thumbsup

I didn't get to even revise this chapter so if there are mistakes, please let me know~ and bare with the poor wording if there are any :nervous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 18

   Eri kicked the pebble across the field, being careful not to hit anybody.  She zipped up her red sweatshirt half way and pushed down her cap onto her head.  Girls stared at her and giggled and whispered as they left the school, but Eri kept her gaze straight.  She only cared about one girl and one girl only: the person who had texted her during lunch time to come pick her up after school.

   The turtle smiled as she thought of her girlfriend— she could finally call her “girlfriend”— and her invitation to go to the aquarium today.  The tickets they had won at Café Buono was about to expire, so they had to use it fast.  But Eri’s smile faltered a little as her bean friend’s words echoed in her head.  She had to confess her real gender today, and she had to do it soon.

   How would Reina react?  Would she understand?  Would she care?  Or would she dump her and never see her again?  Eri shuddered at the thought.  She didn’t she could live without seeing the kitten anymore; Reina was already such a big part of her life that she could never let go.  But if Reina lets go first… what could Eri do?

   “Don’t make such a sad face, pretty boy; a smile suits you more.”

   Eri jumped with a start and looked to her side.  Next to her was a petit girl who wore a grin that seemed like the brightest thing in the world to the turtle.  She couldn’t help but smile back.

   “I wasn’t making a sad face,” Eri denied. 

   “Oh please, you should’ve seen yourself,” Reina scoffed, rolling her eyes.  “You looked like a turtle that lost its shell.  What’s on your mind?”

   “Um… you see… that’s, uh…”

   “So this is the famous boyfriend!”

   Reina gasped as she felt someone jump on her from behind and bring her into a tight hug.  Eri’s eyes widened at the tall black-haired girl who was smirking at her.  Two shorter girls came up to Reina’s side and linked their arms with hers. 

   “Oh wow, you’re prettier up close!” one of the short girls said with a heavy accent.

   “You’re a little too pretty though,” the other short girl grumbled.  “Are you sure you’re a boy?”

   “Don’t be silly, Aika,” the tall girl who was hugging Reina laughed.  “We promised not to make that joke, remember?”

   “I know, I know…”

   “What do you guys think you’re doing?” Reina yelled, breaking free from the tall panda’s arm and standing next to her “boyfriend”.  “And don’t creep up on me like that, Jun.”

   “Hey, we just wanted to meet our friend’s boyfriend,” Junjun said, holding up her hands in defense.  “You should introduce us Reina, because we’re not leaving until we meet him.”

   “… Fine,” the kitten sighed, knowing the panda was right.  “Guys, this is Kamei Eriku, Eri for short.  Eri, these are my… uh… friends… Junjun, Aika, and Linlin.”

   “Nice to meet you, Eri,” Junjun said, offering her hand.  “I don’t know how you managed to melt down this ice block here but congratulations anyway.”

   “Uh, thanks,” Eri answered, shaking the yankii leader’s hand. 

   “You seem like a nice person, Eri!” Linlin greeted.  “Please take good care of Reina-senpai.”

   “If you ever hurt her, I won’t forgive you,” Aika grumbled.

   “Now, Aika, that’s my job,” Junjun grinned.  “Just stay cool and we can all be friends, Eri.”

   “Uh, right…” the turtle said.  The tallest girl seemed nice enough, but something about her smile made her shiver.

   “Okay, wonderful, we’re all friends,” Reina said flatly.  “Now can we leave and trust that you girls won’t follow us?”

   “Yeah, go and enjoy your date or whatever,” Junjun laughed.  “Nice meeting you, Eri.”

   “Nice meeting you too—”

   “Great, great, great, let’s leave!” the ex-yankii said quickly.  She grabbed the turtle’s hand and started to run, dragging Eri behind her.  Junjun smirked while Linlin just grinned at the happy couple.  Aika crossed her arms and pouted.

   “He doesn’t even look strong enough to protect Reina-senpai!” she complained.  “He looks all girly and flimsy.”

   “It’s not like Reina needs any protection,” Junjun chuckled.  “Eri seems like an interesting character.”

   “I like him!” Linlin exclaimed.  “He seems pretty together.”

   “Yeah…” Junjun agreed, raising an eyebrow.  “But there’s something about him that’s a little… off.”

**  **  ** 

   “I can’t believe… we ran… all the way… here…” Eri huffed, trying to take in some oxygen.

   “Sorry… I didn’t… want them… to bother… us…” Reina wheezed, also breathing heavily.

   The two girls straightened their backs, still trying to calm their breath.  They had run all the way to the aquarium without stop, due to Reina’s insecurity about her “friends”.  They were still holding hands when Eri started to laugh.

   “What’s so funny?” the kitten raised an eyebrow.

   “You’re friends seem pretty nice,” Eri chuckled.  “They’re really clingy but you just couldn’t wait to get away from them.  I don’t know; it was interesting to watch you lose your cool for a second there.”

   “I didn’t lose my cool!” Reina said, her cheeks blushing.  “It’s just… I wanted to be alone with you as soon as possible…”

   The ex-yankii’s face turned even redder as she started to slightly regret saying that.  Eri’s eyes widened as she blushed a little too.  She then smiled and put her arm around her petit girlfriend.

   “I want to be with you too,” the turtle whispered.  Reina smiled and looked down shyly.  Eri had never seen her act like this before.  It was kind of cute.

   So the turtle took her girlfriend’s hand and led her into the aquarium.  Reina handed the ticket booth lady their free passes and they were immediately let in. 

   “So,” Eri started, “where do you want to go first?”

   “Anywhere is fine,” Reina smiled. 

   “That’s actually the worst answer you could give me,” Eri groaned, “because now I really don’t know where to take you…”

   “Well, if I have to choose…” Reina murmured, grinning mischievously.  She tiptoed to whisper into the turtle’s ear, “How about a nice, quiet corner where we can do something fun together alone?”

   Eri gasped as she felt the temperature of her cheeks skipping up a couple degrees.  The kitten backed away to face her “boyfriend” with a smirk and quickly pecked “him” on his cheek.

   “Just kidding,” she giggled.  “Let’s go see the penguins first!”

   With that, Reina skipped away merrily, her long straight brown hair swishing behind her.  Eri just stared at her girlfriend, awe-stricken, and adjusted her cap.

   I lost to her again, the turtle thought, sighing.  She’s totally playing with me right now.  Not like I mind so much, but…

   “Eri, come on!” Reina called happily, holding out her hand.  She was about ten feet away now, waiting for her lover to take her hand.

   I guess I can play along in her game for a while, Eri thought, grinning.  She’s one in a million; I’ll do anything for her.

   The turtle quickly skittered through the lobby and took her girlfriend’s hand.  Together, the couple found a map to direct them to the penguin exhibit, and continued on to their destination.

   Throughout the whole day, the two girls visited almost every exhibit they could; most of them were requests from Reina but Eri was only happy to oblige so it didn’t matter so much.  The best part of the day for Reina was probably the ice cream; she was actually quite scared of all the animals but not the penguin-shaped popsicle.  The worst experience for the kitten was the dolphins; ironically enough, that was the best part of the day for Eri.

   “Ah, this is scary!” Reina screamed.  “Yada!”

   “Relax, Reina!” the turtle laughed.  “I thought you wanted to do this?”

   “I did!” the ex-yankii screamed back in an overly loud voice.  “But I thought you were going to do this with me!”

   “Oh… Sorry about that.  I, uh… have a slight cold so… I don’t want it to get worse.”

   It was an excuse of course; Eri knew she couldn’t get in the water topless like actual guys with a life vest on.  So Reina was in the outdoor water pool with a dolphin trainer, floating on the deep side, getting ready to surf with the dolphins.

   “Kowai, kowai, KOWAI!” Reina continued to scream at the top of her lungs.  “YADA!”

   “Okay, are you set?” the dolphin trainer yelled.  “Please firmly grab onto the dorsal fins!  Okay, let’s go!”

   The trainer gave the signal and the two dolphins started to swim full speed at the floating kitten.  Reina stared with a worried expression at her lover, who was standing near the steps with only her feet in the water.  She grinned and mouthed words of encouragement.  But for a moment, Reina started concentrate too much on the way Eri was smiling, like the way her mouth curved up to reveal her crooked smile, and the way her eyes arched into those eye-smiles…

   “Ichi… Ni… San!”

   Reina suddenly perked back to life and realized the dolphin’s fins slipped right from her hands. 

   “It’s okay, Reina!” Eri yelled.  “Just try again!”

   “You want me to TRY AGAIN?” Reina shrilled.  “Why don’t YOU show me how it’s done, Eri?”

   “If you don’t do it now, you’re going to regret it later!” Eri teased.

   “… Fine,” the kitten sniffed.

   And so, the dolphins dashed towards the scared girl again.  But this time, she made sure she didn’t look at her “boyfriend” for any encouragement and was able to completely focus on the dolphins; in the end, she managed to latch onto their dorsal fins and swim across the pool.

   “That was great, Reina!” Eri laughed.  “Otsukaresama~”

   “I thought I was going to have a heart attack…” Reina huffed, shuffling out of the pool.  She shivered a little and sneezed a couple times.  Eri quickly put a large towel around her alone with her own arms.  She embraced her girlfriend tightly and kissed her on the head.

   “You did great,” Eri whispered.  “I’m proud of you.”

   “Mm… I think this made that worthwhile,” Reina mumbled back, smiling.

   Other than that big laugh, Eri was content with just following around Reina wherever she wanted to go, and tried to think of ways she could confess her real gender to the girl of her dreams.  But their aquarium date was going so well, Eri hardly wanted to ruin that.  But Risa’s voice didn’t stop echoing in her head, and she knew her bean friend was right.  Reina had to know the truth and know the truth now before something else happened.

   At the end of their tour around the aquarium, the couple ended up in a long underwater tunnel where various fishes swam all around them.  The water itself seemed to glow in the dark corridors aside from the faint stream of light on the floor.  The tunnel was mostly empty because there were a lot of animal shows going on at the same time, but Reina and Eri had already caught the first shows in the afternoon.  Reina walked up to one side of the glass and observed the colorful fishes.

   “Kirei…” she whispered.  “They’re beautiful…”

   “I can think of something more beautiful than the fishes here,” Eri said, stepping next to her girlfriend, “or someone.”

   “That’s the oldest line in the book, Eri,” Reina laughed.  “You have to come up with new ones to impress me.”

   “Is there a deadline?” Eri joked.

   “You have all the time you need,” Reina smiled. 

   She wrapped her arms around her lover’s neck and brought herself closer to Eri’s warm arms.  The turtle responded back by embracing her girlfriend back.  She stroked the shorter girl’s hair for a while, which was still a little wet from the dolphin surfing.  Eri bit down on her lips and pulled away a little to face her girlfriend.

   “Look… Reina,” she started nervously.  “I haven’t been completely honest with you this whole time.  Everything you see— my looks, my character, my personality— it’s all real.  But there’s one thing I’ve been hiding from you.  And I know this may be selfish of me, but I really hope whatever I say next won’t change anything between us.”

   “Hey, I told you I used to be a delinquent,” Reina grinned.  “I almost ended up with a prison record.  I want nothing more than for you to be completely honest to me too.”

   “Really?” Eri said, feeling a little hopeful.

   “Of course.  And speaking of being honest…” Reina hesitated, “is it okay if I confess just one more thing?”

   “More than okay,” Eri answered.  “You go first.”

   “The truth is, when I first met you… I thought you were a girl,” Reina laughed nervously, biting down on her lips.  Eri’s expression tightened but she didn’t say anything.  So the kitten continued on, “But from the way you were dressed, you looked like a boy.  I just decided that you were a real baby-face and called you, ‘pretty boy’, remember that?  You were so cute back then, so innocent and clueless with the money and stuff!  You weren’t even my type at all but I guess I was attracted to you even back then.  So somehow, I made myself believe that you were a boy.  And you were… so I couldn’t be happier right now.  Does this all sound weird to you?”

   “… Um, just a little…” Eri mumbled.  What could she say now?  Reina just confessed that she was happy to discover that Eri was a boy!  How could she reveal her true gender after that?

   “I knew it sounded weird…” Reina said, scratching her head.  Her cheeks turned soft pink as she started to think of what to say next.  “But I still want to let you know that I’m not treating you like a kid or anything, I mean… you’re my boyfriend.  And I couldn’t hope for a better lover.  I guess I’m just trying to say… su… ki… yo… hontou ni… mm… d-dai… su—”

   “Is it really that hard to say?” Eri laughed nervously.

   “Hey, I’m trying my best here!” Reina whined, blushing furiously. 

   “It’s okay, Reina,” the turtle chuckled.  “I can tell from your face anyway.  I guess this is something I can teach you.”

   With that, Eri pulled her girlfriend back into her arms and leaned close to her ears. 

   “Reina wa kawaii,” she whispered, grinning.  “Dakara suki.  Daisuki.”

   “… Shut up…” the ex-yankii mumbled. 

   She could feel her heart about to explode from her chest.  She had been held by other guys before but nobody had been this sweet to her.  She lightly punched Eri’s shoulder and hung her head down, refusing to show her red face to the chuckling turtle.  But Eri only tilted her head more to meet eyes with the shy kitten.  Following her lover’s lead, Reina slowly raised her head and closed her eyes.  A second later, she felt the softness of Eri’s lips meet with hers, followed by the sweetness of her tongue.  They swirled around each other, each trying to get more of the other.  Eri gently pushed Reina against the glass wall and trapped her in her arms, pushing her lips against hers more fiercely.  Reina removed Eri’s cap and knotted her fingers into the short hair of her lover to get even more into the kiss.  Together, they completed each other.  All the emptiness that Reina had felt in the past no longer existed when she was with Eri like this.  And the turtle didn’t want anything to break this moment.  Not even the one most important truth about her.

   I guess my confession will have to wait, Eri thought.  I can’t disappoint Reina like this.  I can just tell her tomorrow or another day.  Besides, what difference would a couple more days make?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NOTE: I based the dolphin part on the famous scene from Morning Musume Alo-Hello 3:

Tanaka Reina is Bad With Dolphins... (subtitled) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJP6EUDHXio#ws)


Next is TakaGaki! (If you remember, Takahashi sensei and Gaki iinchou were going afterschool shopping) XD

Yay! I'm so happy you updated! :cow: And don't worry because we will stick with you! :thumbsup

That was so cute! I thought that Eri was really going to tell Reina about her real gender, but I thought, hmm...isn't that happening too fast? :mon dunno: So the confession would have to wait. That's something to look forward too! :twothumbs But I'm worried about how Reina would react. She was relieved that Eri was a "boy". :mon pray2:

Can't wait to go shopping with TakaGaki! :mon squee:

And I can totally understand about the work and all. I have research papers to do too. :mon study:

:ptam-shy:

Why didn't Eri tell Reina that she's actually a girl? I have a bad feeling about this...
You're not going to make Reina hate Eri, right? Because if you do... :ptam-kill:

Reina practically gave Eri the chance to 'fess up, but I guess Eri couldn't shatter Reina's 'illusion' of her as a boy when she had just said she was glad Eri turned out to be a boy. A conflict seems inevitable, I just hope Reina isn't too harsh with Eri or Eri is pushed to her limits in what she can handle. I have a funny feeling that Jun will have something to do with exposing Eri; in the least, I think Jun will be the first to find out Eri is a girl, but for some reason I don't think she'll mercilessly expose her or something. Maybe Jun could even help Eri come to her true self with Reina?

Oh, it's just so adorable how Aika is protective of her senpai, measuring up Eri the 'boyfriend' XD


Of course, I look forward to Takagaki the most. Something about the teacher/student thing. It's so...naughty.

Same here :lol: (though, I keep my focus on TanaKame :D)

Finally caught up~!

You've got a really interesting story here, Saranghai, no doubt... I love that you always try to include all the members (which can be quite demanding to do - imo, anyway) and give us pretty good characters at that.

Now, I can't quite get enough of my TakaGaki fix in this story. The idea of a student/teacher affair... while I usually won't condone (being a teacher myself and all >.<)... it really does lend quite a nice edge to this slowly developing relationship between them. ^___^ So far, TakaGaki has only been sweet, sweet, sweet... I really can't imagine them getting hot and heavy, but when the time comes, I'll take it all in stride  :drool:

So yeah, as for the pairings, my favourite is definitely TakaGaki here.

What's going on between Tanakame... :/
Honestly? I did prefer them in Kokoro no Uta. They were uber, uber cute there. Not that they're not cute here. There's definitely a lot going on between the two in this story, but I just felt that Reina's returning of Eri's feelings was a little abrupt. I thought Eri was going to have it really hard... at least another 20 or so chapters before she managed to get the kitten softened up and all  XD So I don't quite buy it at this point; things are moving so quickly! I can understand Eri's falling for Reina, and I can understand love at first sight and everything, but from the impression I got of Reina at the beginning, I didn't think she would bend to Eri so fast, is all. Still, I do enjoy their scenes together, but I feel like I have to suspend a bit of disbelief (aside from the fact that anybody can mistake Eri for a boy  :lol:) in order to.

SayuJun.... now this is another very interesting couple. A good character to give Sayu. And Jun... wow, such a player, so confident  XD
Jun's being a little forceful though, isn't she? Kissing Sayu like that when she obviously doesn't want it. That kind of surprised me, I thought Jun wouldn't do that, and my respect for her fell a bit... but some of the other readers seemed to enjoy that >.< LOL. Anyway, I'm looking forward to see how things unravel between these two. Another story where Jun's chasing after Sayu... lol.

Overall, good job with the story. I remember mentioning to you that I would've liked to see more detail in your story, but I can understand considering you're so busy and stuff. ^__^


And please know that just because I'm inactive, doesn't mean I'm sick of this story yet... you know, the way some writers do  XD

I'm still thinking of lot of scenarios so look forward to it~  :D


Well, definitely feels like you were into your previous story a lot more xD
I hope you don't get burnt out with so much on your plate. I guess... take your time, make sure you get your sleep and rest!

Good luck with everything!
Thanks for the story, and am waiting for your next update. TakaGaki, YUM.

OMG! I like this chapter so much, Eri so sweet and about her gender... It will shock Reina -> Junjun and others angry -> a " fight for love" absolutely will happen, I think so. but hard as it is, Eri will fight with all her strenght for her love even it may cost her life.
And SarangAi, stay healthy. Your readers always care for you, you sick no one is happy; get more sleep and eat healthy foods. good luck and have a nice week ^^

@aussie: don't we all hope Reina won't be too hard on Eri... we'll see  :twisted:

@Beecubed: ah~ I always wait for your comment because I feel like I get some pretty nice constructive criticisms from you :thumbsup  Yeah, I definitely poured more into Kokoro no Uta than Chigatte mo Iin da yo! because at the moment, I'm just so busy with classes and stuff like that.  So I'm making the story flow a LOT faster than I originally planned so I can get to new things before anybody gets sick of it :nervous  Yeah, so I had to get Reina and Eri together quick.... sorry, that's just me being impatient :bleed eyes:  Jun is an interesting character, the most interesting in this entire story, I'd say.  There's a lot you know about her but also a lot you don't. So the thing with Sayu... we'll see how that turns out XD  Yeah, so thanks for the comment!  They really do help me see how the story looks to the readers and stuff~ thanks! :twothumbs

@yukirei: oh, "fight for love" happens all the time~ and thank you for worrying about me, that's so sweet of you!  :D

@Fushigidane: you just summed it up pretty nicely  XD


oh, comments make me so happy~ I'm currently indulging myself in more work while spacing out occasionally about the next TakaGaki chapter~  XD

   “The truth is, when I first met you… I thought you were a girl,” Reina laughed nervously, biting down on her lips.  Eri’s expression tightened but she didn’t say anything.  So the kitten continued on, “But from the way you were dressed, you looked like a boy.  I just decided that you were a real baby-face and called you, ‘pretty boy’, remember that?  You were so cute back then, so innocent and clueless with the money and stuff!  You weren’t even my type at all but I guess I was attracted to you even back then.  So somehow, I made myself believe that you were a boy.  And you were… so I couldn’t be happier right now.  Does this all sound weird to you?”

   “… Um, just a little…” Eri mumbled.  What could she say now?  Reina just confessed that she was happy to discover that Eri was a boy!  How could she reveal her true gender after that?

Arrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!!  DANGER! Eri DANGER!  :frustrated:  :frustrated:  :frustrated:

I think we all saw this becoming a problem, I can't believe Reina admitted to Eri that she's glad she's a 'boy' because at first she thought she was a girl  :doh: Now Eri is going to keep a lie alive when she should tell the truth  :banghead:

Hmm, why do I get the feeling that Jun will try and find out more about Reina's 'boyfriend' she dosn't seem that convinced about Eri and Judging by her character in this fic she will try and find out more, I wont be surprised if she figures out before Reina and goes to confront Eri about it on her own....  :panic:

@Tami-Ai: thank you~  XD

@Haruka: oh school is just ruining my life.  I thought I was gonna have fun during Thanksgiving break, but I still have papers to work on :bleed eyes:


yay for update! :cow:
Like I said, this chapter took FOREVER to write.  I didn't even bother editing; it was too damn long :nervous

hope it was worth the wait~  :P

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 19

   “No, Sensei, you can’t do that!”

   “Oh, come on, Gaki-san, don’t I get some say in this?”

   “But you don’t know what you’re doing!  I’m telling you this from experience!”

   “Please, Gaki-san?”

   “No means no, so stop touching me!”  Risa took a step away from her teacher who had had her hand on her shoulders.  “I’m going to tell you now, Sensei: stainless steel is the best thing for kitchen utensils these days!”

   Takahashi-sensei pouted as she muttered something incoherent under her breath.  Risa sighed as she just shook her head at the teacher’s immaturity.

   “But I want the cute porcelain ones,” Ai complained, pointing at the white pot with pink flowers painted on it, set on the table. 

   “Fashion isn’t exactly a luxury that can be given while cooking,” Risa sighed, “It’s something provided after cooking.  And for a beginner like you, a stainless steel pot is the safest thing.”

   “… Fine,” the teacher finally said, dropping her crossed arms.  “I guess they are a little cheaper too.  And I’m on a budget.”

   “Exactly,” the bean smiled.  “Now let’s get this checked out and move onto the next store.  Did you get everything you need?”

   “Well, the stainless steel pot comes with the other utensils that I needed as a set, and I got the other stuff…. So I think I’m set,” Ai said, tapping her finger to her chin.

   “Okay, let’s pay before the cashier line gets longer,” Risa said before she dashed to the register. 

   Ai followed lazily behind and stood next to her student silently as her companion did all the talking.  All she did was take out her credit card, swipe, and put it back in.  After the items were checked out, Risa grabbed a hold of the large plastic bag and marched out of the store.  Ai quickly followed behind and reached for the load, but the bean shook her head and stepped aside.

   “It’s okay, Sensei, I’ll carry it,” she said.

   “Are you sure, Gaki-san?” the older woman asked worriedly.  “You’re doing me a lot of favors today, I feel kind of bad…”

   “Don’t feel bad; I’m the one who volunteered,” Risa said firmly.  She didn’t really want to hear her teacher refer to herself as “bad” again.  Such a simple word from Takahashi-sensei’s lips seemed to make it carry a whole different meaning.

   “You really are like a parent, Gaki-san,” Ai laughed.  “An annoying nagging mother that teenagers groan about.  I think our roles are switched in terms of age right now.”

   “It’s because of my mom,” Risa mumbled.  “She’s always responsible and stuff so I guess I just kind of picked it up from her.  Plus, with Eri as my best friend, someone needs to be the responsible one.”

   “Your mother sounds very kind,” the teacher chuckled.  “And I know what you mean about Kamei.  But I think you’re just overly mature, Gaki-san.  Be a kid and live it up for once.”

   “Don’t teachers usually tell their students to play after graduating and study while you can?” Risa asked, raising an eyebrow.

   “With you, I think I should just say everything opposite of what I usually say to my students,” Takahashi-sensei grinned.  “Don’t study too hard Gaki-san; you need to take care of your health first.”

   “Thanks for the concern, Takahashi-sensei,” Risa said, smiling a little.  “But I study because I like it.  So you don’t need to worry about me.”

   “No child likes studying, not even you, Gaki-san,” Ai accused, narrowing her eyes.  “You’re lying to me.”

   “Why would I do that?” Risa said, raising her eyebrows.

   “You tell me,” the teacher grinned.  “Maybe that’s your secret that I need to dig into.  But for now, we better hurry up and get going.  I have one more place I need to go to and it looks like it’s going to rain soon.”

   The two women swiftly made their way to the nearest grocery shop and got a cart.  The teacher made her way through the aisle with her student pushing the cart right behind her because, of course, Risa had insisted.  The older woman basically picked off every kind of canned food there was in the racks, starting from instant meatballs and soup to canned fruits and beans.  This made Risa smile to herself; the teacher really didn’t know how to cook, did she?  But it wasn’t very healthy to live on instant food all the time…

   But surprisingly, Takahashi-sensei made her way to the vegetable and fruit section next.  She walked around for a while, and picked off a couple greens from the cool racks.  The bean raised an eyebrow.

   “I thought you didn’t know how to cook, Sensei,” she said.

   “I don’t,” Ai admitted.  “But eating that bento of yours today made me feel a little embarrassed, to be honest.  I feel like I should still try.  I look at some books and experiment or something.” 

   She turned around and flashed a shy smile at the student.  Risa blushed quickly and looked away just as fast.

   “D-don’t burn down the kitchen or anything…” she muttered, trying to hide the effect of the teacher’s smile on her.

   “I won’t,” Ai laughed.  She picked off a couple more greens before making her way back to the aisles to look for more ingredients.  She picked off a couple things again and continued on to the cash register where Risa closely followed behind.

   “What exactly are you trying to make, Sensei?” the bean asked while placing the items on the assembly line.

   “I feel up to monjayaki today, I think,” Ai said, turning a little red.  “It seems simple enough, so I think I can manage.”

   “Ah!  Monjayaki daisuki desu!” Risa exclaimed with a big smile.  “I’m really good at making it too, but I make it in a special way.  I’ll make some for you next time, Sensei.”

   “I’d really like that,” Ai laughed, thinking about how innocent her student was in the end, even though she always acts mature.

   After checking out all the groceries, the teacher and the student walked out of the store with their hands full of plastic bags.  But something stopped them before they even stepped outside.

   “How did it start raining so hard already?” Ai remarked, yelling a little to be heard over the heavy pour of rain.

   “I didn’t know the weather was going to be this bad…” Risa mumbled.  She knew her way around downtown pretty well, but she had never gone grocery shopping here.  So she wasn’t exactly sure how to get to the bus stop from her current location.

   “I guess we went a little too into town,” Ai sighed.  “I’m sorry, Gaki-san.  I wonder if you can find your way back… You certainly can’t walk home in this weather; you should take the bus or the subway.  Do you know which route?”

   “Don’t worry about me, Sensei, I can take care of myself.”  Was it route seventeen or seventy?  Or maybe it was thirty… Well, I’m in trouble.

   “No, I think the weather is just too bad right now,” Ai said, shaking her head.  “I can’t send you home like this.  My house is a little nearer then yours, so you can stop by for a while.”

   Did she just invite me to her home? Risa thought, her eyes widening.  Well, she’s a teacher; she worries about her students all the time.  I guess it doesn’t really have a special meaning or anything.  Not like I want there to be a special meaning.  But it’s true that I can’t really get home from here…

   “It’s not that far, but the rain is heavy so we’ll have to run,” the teacher said, looking up into the dark sky.  “Just run behind me, okay, Gaki-san?”

   “Okay,” Risa answered.

   “Ready… now!”

   Right on cue, the two women ran into the rain and down the street while clutching on to the plastic bags in their hands.  After a couple minutes, they entered an apartment complex and ran straight into the first building.  Ai pressed the elevator button to go up as Risa breathed heavily beside her.  They staggered into the elevator together and finally took a breath, but only after pressing the button for the tenth floor.

   “Deep breaths, Gaki-san,” the teacher wheezed.

   “You’re not the one to be speaking, Sensei,” Risa huffed back.

   “Touché,” the teacher chuckled.

   With the clear “ding” or the elevator, the two women reached the front door of the teacher’s home.  Ai used a key to open the door and quickly walked in.  She dropped the groceries right by the front door after taking off her shoes.  She quickly ran into the house and went into a room while Risa started to observe her surroundings.  The apartment was pretty small, but big enough for one person.  The living room was stretched out to the left while the joint kitchen-dining room was located on the right.  Everything was pretty empty except for the basic furniture; there were no pictures or decorations yet. 

   Then, the teacher emerged from the room she had disappeared into with a towel slung over her arms.  She quickly unfolded it and placed it around the bean’s shoulders. 

   “You can drop the groceries,” she said.  “I got a bath running right now, so you can go in when it’s full enough.”

   “I’m really okay, Sensei,” Risa said.  “I don’t need to take a bath.”

   “You will not get sick on me, Gaki-san,” Takahahshi-sensei scolded while grinning.  “Besides, you still have school tomorrow.  I’ll dry your uniform while you take a bath, okay?  And then we can have dinner together.”

   “But I’m really—”

   “No ‘buts’.  You.  Bathroom.  In.  Now.” 

   With that, the teacher dragged her student across the short hall and pushed her into the first room.  Risa stared at the closed door for a while before sighing.  If she walked out right now, Sensei was only going to push her right back in.  And she was getting kind of cold so a hot batch didn’t sound too bad.  And the last sentence about dinner from her teacher had kind of caught her attention.

   Reaching a decision, the bean quickly stripped down and left her wet uniform in a pile by the door.  She then slowly sunk her body into the hot bath after turning the water off.  She sighed contently as stretched her sore muscles.  How long was she going to stay here?  Probably after the rain stops.  But her teacher had already invited her to dinner so she would probably leave after the monjayaki.  She was kind of worried about Sensei’s cooking though…

   “Gaki-san, I’m coming in.”

   “Wait, what?”

   Risa covered the front of her body with her arms as her teacher walked right into the bathroom.  But her body was immersed in the water so it wasn’t visible anyway.  But Risa still felt conscious; she was naked while she and her teacher were in the same room!

   “No need to feel shy, Gaki-san,” Ai chuckled.  “We’re both girls here.”

   “Uh… girls,” Risa nodded.  “Um, right.  Yeah.  Totally.”  She’s right, so why am I feeling embarrassed?  I’ve seen Kameha naked bunch of times in onsens…

   “I just came into get your uniform,” the older woman explained, picking up the pile of wet clothes from the tiled floor.  In its place, she put down a set of white wardrobe.  “These are my old clothes.  You can wear these when you come out.  Don’t stay in too long; you’ll get dizzy.”

   “Okay,” Risa squeaked, her mouth dangerously close enough to the water to blow bubbles.

   Ai smiled before walking out of the bathroom and closing the door behind her.  Risa’s tense body finally relaxed again as she sighed. 

   That teacher is going to be the death of me one day, she thought.  She could still feel her face burning.  She turned on some cold water and splashed some on her face.  It helped a little bit.

   The bean stayed in for a couple more minutes before she stepped out of the tub.  She dried herself quickly and picked up the white clothing from the floor.  It was a pair of light gray sweats with a white button pajama shirt.  She put them on and breathed in the scent from the sleeves; it had the same natural scent that her teacher had.  She blushed a little.

   I’m seriously becoming a pervert, Risa thought, sighing. 

   She ruffled her short hair with a towel to dry it before a loud noise interrupted her from outside.  It was the quick beeping of the fire alarm going off.  Risa gasped as she ran out of the bathroom and into the kitchen.  Ai was spraying mists of water at the stove, which was fuming with gray smoke now, with a fire extinguisher.  The beeping soon stopped and Ai coughed while waving the smoke away. 

   “Could you please open the window for me, Gaki-san?” she asked.

   “What happened, Sensei?” the bean demanded while being obedient to her teacher.

   “I, uh… I guess I didn’t control the fire as well as I thought I did?” she said, laughing nervously. 

   “No offense, Sensei,” Risa started slowly, “but I think it’ll be better if you don’t cook for a while.”

   “None taken,” the older woman smiled weakly, “because I agree.”

   “Look, how about I make dinner tonight?” Risa suggested.  “I’m here anyway, I might as well make myself useful.  I can make my special monjayaki.”

   “I guess that’s the best way, huh?” Takahashi-sensei grinned.  “Do you mind if I watch?”

   “Not at all.”  Yes, I do mind.  I can’t concentrate if you look at me!

   With that, Risa went right to work.  She took out a large bowl and a spoon; she poured some flour and water into the bowl to start making the batter.  She added some chopped vegetables along the way and continued mixing.  She could feel her teacher watching her from behind by the table.  Not exactly a comfortable position.

   “So… Sensei…” the bean said slowly, “um… what happened to my uniform?”

   “Oh, it’s in the dryer right now,” the teacher reassured.  “You don’t need to worry about anything, Gaki-san.”

   “Okay,” Risa mumbled.  She felt way too nervous with her teacher watching her like that.  What was wrong with herself today?  She was usually a composed girl but today, she seemed to fall apart left and right.  And all she did was just spend the day with her teacher…

   Trying to get rid of the awkward feeling, Risa started to chop some more vegetables furiously.  But somewhere along the way, she missed a beat of her knife work, nicking her finger in the process.

   “ITAI!” she yelled out, dropping the knife.

   “Gaki-san, are you okay?” Ai said in a panic, rushing to the younger girl.

   “I- I’m fine, Sensei,” Risa reassured.  I knew I was getting too nervous…

   “You should be more careful!” the older woman scolded.  She looked at the inured finger that was bleeding now from the cut made near the fingertips.  “You can’t leave it like that.”

   Without warning, Ai brought Risa’s finger to her mouth and licked the wound clean by sucking on it.  Risa blushed furiously but her teacher didn’t notice; she was too busy trying to remember where she put the first aid kit.  The bean’s face only turned redder and redder as she felt each swish of Ai’s tongue, running across her finger.  Eventually, the teacher backed away and dropped the student’s hand.

   “I’ll go find some band-aid,” she announced, disappearing into her bedroom.  She was back in less than a minute with a band-aid stuck to her hand.  She peeled it off and wrapped it around Risa’s injured finger; all the while, the bean stared down at her feet in an attempt to hide her burning face.

   “There, that should do it,” Ai sighed contently.  “You are not cooking anymore, young lady.”

   “Well, who’s going to cook then?” Risa asked, still focusing her stare on the floor.

   “I will,” Ai answered.  “But you’re going to help me.”

   The teacher went to the counter and took a hold of the knife and started to slowly chop away at the vegetables.

    “Am I doing it right?” she asked.

   “Yeah,” Risa nodded, standing behind her teacher.  “But don’t dice it too much.”

   So with their slow and tiring yet continuing teamwork, the teacher and the student was able to make the monjayaki dinner together.  Risa had instructed Takahashi-sensei with her own recipe of just pouring the juices over the batter on the frying pan instead of making a well.  She also told her to add broken pieces of senbe, cheese, and rice cakes.. 

   “Are you sure this is right?” Ai asked, raising an eyebrow.  “I didn’t know you make monjayaki this way…”

   “Trust me, Sensei,” the bean reassured.  “It tastes way better like this.  Niigaki style is truly the best!”

   “Okay, I’m leaving this up to you, then,” the teacher said, smiling.  “I hope the taste will live up to the effort.”

   It took a little longer than it had to, what with Risa’s constant orders and Ai’s inability to follow them, but soon enough, the monjayaki dinner was finished.  Takahashi-sensei placed the frying pan in the middle of the table and started to scourge for some plates and utensils.  Risa just helped herself to a seat, realizing there was nothing more she could do.  Ai soon came back with two pairs of chopsticks and two plates. 

   “Sorry, I didn’t buy spatulas yet,” the teacher apologized.

   “It’s okay.  With Niigaki monjayaki, it’s way better to eat it with chopsticks,” Risa reassured, grinning. 

   “Well then, let’s taste this Niigaki monjayaki and see what’s so special about it,” Ai laughed. 

   With her chopsticks, the older woman helped herself to some of the sizzling monjayaki on the frying pan.  She blew on it a couple times before taking the food into her mouth.  Risa watched intently as Ai chewed a couple times and swallowed.

   “Dou desu ka?” the bean asked in a low voice.  “How is it?”

   “O…”

   “O…?”

   “Hon…”

   “Ho… un?”

   “Hon~tou ni oishii!” Ai exclaimed.  “It tastes delicious!  I never knew you could make monjayaki like this!  Yabai, chou oishii!”

   “Maa, Sensei!  You scared me there for a second!” Risa whined, letting out a deep sigh of relief.

   “Gomen, gomen!” the teacher laughed.  “But it does taste amazing.  You’re a very talented girl, Gaki-san.”

   “Well, you did all the work, Sensei,” Risa mumbled, scratching her head.  “All I did was talk.”

   “We did a good job, then,” Ai smiled.  “Now let’s eat our dinner before it gets cold!”

   So the two women dug into the delicious Niigaki-style monjayaki and finished it together in the matter of minutes.  By the time they were through with the dishes, it was already nearing nine o’clock.

   “It’s getting pretty late, Sensei,” Risa said, looking out the veranda into the dark night.  “I think I should get home soon.”

   “But it’s still raining pretty hard,” Ai said.  “I don’t feel right sending you home in this weather, Gaki-san.  It’s not safe.”

   “But what other choice do I have?”

   “… If you find my apartment accommodating enough, you’re welcome to stay the night,” Ai offered, smiling kindly.  “I can call your mother up for you too.”

   She can’t be serious, Risa thought, her eyes widening.  Oh wait a minute, she really isn’t serious.  This doesn’t mean anything to her; it’s just her being worried for me as a teacher.  Not like I want it to mean anything so it’s cool that it doesn’t mean anything because she really doesn’t mean anything even though I thought it meant something— Okay, now I’m just confusing myself; hold it together, Risa!

   “I don’t think you’re mother would be too angry, would she?” Ai asked, interrupting the little bean’s chain of thoughts.  “I’m sure she wouldn’t want you out in this weather at this time either.”

   “No, she probably wouldn’t mind…” the student mumbled.  “Um, may I use the phone?”

   “Sure, help yourself.”

   The bean swept past her teacher in the living room and towards the phone on the small table near the sofa.  She dialed her home and waited until a familiar voice picked up.

   “Moshi-moshi?”

   “Mama?”

   “Risa, is that you?” the voice on the other line yelled.  “Where are you right now?  It’s not like you to stay out so late.”

   “I’m sorry,” the bean apologized.  “I was helping my homeroom teacher with a couple things after school.  Then it started raining really hard so I’m at her house right now.”

   “Is this the new teacher that you were talking about before?”

   “Yeah, that’s her.”

   “I thought you didn’t like her?” Risa’s mother said, a smile in her voice.

   “She…” Risa lowered her voice into a whisper and covered her mouth with her hands.  “She’s not that bad.”

   At this point, Ai was already by the bean’s side, grinning.  She motioned for the phone and Risa obliged.

   “Hello, Mrs. Niigaki?” the teacher spoke eloquently.  “I’m Takahashi Ai, Niigaki’s homeroom teacher.  Yes, I just moved in so your daughter was helping me find my way around town.  I’m very grateful to her.  I apologize for worrying you… Yes, your daughter made an excellent dinner for the both of us… Yes, you don’t have to worry about anything, Mrs. Niigaki, I’ll make sure she gets up bright and early for school tomorrow… Yes, thank you, I apologize for all the inconvenience… She’s no problem at all, please don’t worry… Yes, have a good night.”

   Ai hung up the phone and turned to face her student, who was staring intently at her face.

   “Your mother seems kind,” the older woman commented.  “She trusts you a lot.”

   “I’m an independent type,” Risa shrugged.

    “But you’re not as mature as I thought you are, Gaki-san,” Ai grinned narrowing her eyes.  “Your mother says to do whatever I need to do to get you up in the morning, even roll you off the bed, because you ignore whatever alarm that goes off in the house.”

   “I’m a heavy sleeper,” the bean muttered. 

   “Right,” Ai laughed.  “Well, I’m guess I’m going to start being the responsible adult here.  I’ll go bring out a futon for you; it’s better to sleep in the living room or you’ll be cramped in my bedroom.  Meanwhile, I want you to finish whatever homework you have.”

   “Do I get an excuse for history homework?” Risa asked hopefully.

   “Gaki-san, do I ever give an exception to homework?” Ai smiled innocently.  “Remember: it’s a zero if you miss homework, and no make-ups.”

    “Sometimes, I think you’re a little too tough, even for me,” Risa muttered.”

   “I’m being fair, not tough,” the teacher grinned.  “You better get started if you want to go to bed early tonight.”

   And so, the two women went on with their own business.  Risa found a comfortable position to curl up in on the couch and started to do her homework as fast as she could.  Ai went hunting for the futon that was still packed away in a box along with other blankets and pillows.  She dragged them out to the living room and spread them out neatly across the floor.  Risa looked up and watched her teacher setting up her bed for the night.  She thought for a moment before speaking up.

   “Sensei?”

   “Hm?”

   “Do you still think you’re a bad person?”

   “… Are we going to start with that talk again?”  Ai got on her feet and looked up with a sad smile.  “You really are very curious, Gaki-san.”

   “I can’t help it,” Risa said, “especially when you’re not even giving me the slightest clue.”

   “I guess I can’t blame you,” Ai sighed.  “Do I really seem that mysterious?”

   “Let’s see; I know nothing about you except your occupation and your age.  You call yourself a bad person and I don’t know why.  You moved up here all alone without any family.  And, you put up an innocent face in front of the entire class yet almost everybody is getting an F.”

   “… I am kind of secretive, aren’t I?” the teacher chuckled. 

   “But you won’t be as soon as you tell me something,” Risa said.

   “… When I look at you, Gaki-san,” Ai started, “I somehow feel… happier.  When I look at all the students in Haro Kotogakko, it fills me with such joy, I can’t quite describe it.  I didn’t know what it was at first, but I think I know now: it’s hope.  Whenever I look at you or any other teenagers who still has a bright future cut out for them, it makes me feel incredibly hopeful.  But it’s a hard world out there, Gaki-san.  That’s why I’m very tough on you and all my students so you can learn that not everything in life is sweet like candy.  When things get hard, you need to get stronger.”

   “What happened to you?” Risa asked quietly.

   “… I made a very big mistake,” the older woman said in a low voice, “and it cost me my most important person at the time.  You see… I wasn’t exactly a good student like you, Gaki-san.  I didn’t have any other family besides my grandmother, so I often went down the wrong path and hung out with the wrong group of friends.  My ignorance eventually caused my grandmother to pass away alone, with no one by her side.  I regretted it a lot.”

   She stopped for a while and turned her gaze to the floor, as though she was looking back into the past.  Risa patiently waited; she knew her teacher wasn’t giving her the full story, but this was good enough.  Finally, Ai coughed a couple times before starting again.

   “So you see, Gaki-san,” she smiled, “some mistakes are irreversible, and it can weigh down on your shoulders for the rest of your life.  I don’t want anybody else to go through that, and I’m sure my grandmother wouldn’t have wanted that either.  That’s why I became a teacher.”

   “… Believe it or not, Sensei,” Risa slowly started, “but now I think you’re a really good person; not bad at all.”

   “Why would you say that?”

   “Because, you became a teacher to help others,” Risa smiled warmly.  “You devoted the rest of your life so nobody else makes the same mistake as you.  You’re a good person, Sensei.  I think I gained some new respect for you right now.”

   Ai stared at her smiling student in awe; this girl had just heard her confession, yet she still thought she was good.  Sure, it wasn’t the whole story, but Risa wasn’t stupid; she must’ve figured to what extent of “bad” Ai had gone to in the past to miss her grandmother’s death.  But her eyes still carried no judgment; only compassion and warmth.

   “… Thank you, Gaki-san,” Ai smiled.  “You really are a kind girl.”

   “It has nothing to do with being kind or not,” the bean said, scratching her head.  “I’m just saying what’s on my mind.”

   “Right,” Ai laughed.  Risa always seemed mature, but she really was still just a kid in the end.  “Are you finished with your homework?”

   “Almost.”

   “Alright then, let’s get to bed quickly.”

**  **  ** 

   Like her mother had mentioned, Risa was quite the heavy sleeper and almost nothing could wake her up in the morning.  The bean herself knew that.  That’s why she was shocked to find herself being awoken by a very faint noise from her teacher’s bedroom in the middle of the night.

   What is this noise? Risa thought, sitting up from her futon.  It sounds like… crying…?

   The teenager slowly got to her feet and listened closely.  There really was a different sound mixed in with the rain.  She quietly tip-toed across the living room and slipped into the bedroom; she didn’t think too much into it before taking action.  All that was on her mind was worry for her teacher.

   The quiet sobbing was more audible now; Risa could make out a figure curled up in bed sideways.  She walked to the edge and kneeled by the bedside.  Ai was really crying; tears were trickling down her face towards the bed, dampening the pillow.  The bean unconsciously reached out and put her hand on the older woman’s cheek.

   “Sensei…?” she whispered. 

   Suddenly, the young girl’s hand was grabbed by her teacher.  Risa gasped, thinking that the sleeping woman had awoken, but she was wrong. 

   “Obaa-chan…” Ai sobbed.  “I’m sorry, please forgive me… I’ll be good now, I promise… I’m so sorry…”

   Risa stared at her teacher’s face for a while; her expression was twisted in pain, even though she was still sleeping.  Was she having nightmares like this every night?

   Sighing, the bean tried to carefully pull her hand out of Ai’s grasp, but the hold only grew tighter.

   “Please don’t leave me, Obaa-chan…” the older woman mumbled on, still crying.  “It’s my fault, I’m sorry… please don’t leave yet… wait for me…”

   “I won’t leave you,” Risa answered unconsciously.  So please don’t be in pain anymore...

   Before her right mind could convince her otherwise, the bean quietly slipped under the covers with her teacher.  Ai was still clutching onto her hand tightly, but Risa didn’t mind.  All that mattered was that the sleeping woman would stop having the nightmare so she won’t have to cry anymore.  And as soon as Risa put her arm around her, Ai’s voice hitched once and the sobbing stopped, continuing instead in soft breathing.

   Please don’t cry anymore, Sensei, Risa thought.  I’ll help you carry the burden, so don’t be so hard on yourself.  I know you’re a good person.

Love the part when Ai-chan came into the bathroom during Gaki's bath. :mon crazyinlove:

Awww~ When Ai-chan was sucking on Gaki's finger~ :mon lovelaff:

Poor Ai-chan having nightmares about her Obaasan. :(

Well, so far, Gaki had already fallen for her sensei... Ai-chan haven't fallen yet so... :mon misch:

I wonder what their reactions would be when they wake up in the morning. :mon wakey:

I love long chapters so...hehe... Can't wait for next update! :twothumbs

Finally!!! :banana:

I've been waiting for this, but it was worth it.  :twothumbs

Quote
“Okay,” Risa mumbled.  She felt way too nervous with her teacher watching her like that.  What was wrong with herself today?  She was usually a composed girl but today, she seemed to fall apart left and right.  And all she did was just spend the day with her teacher…

   Trying to get rid of the awkward feeling, Risa started to chop some more vegetables furiously.  But somewhere along the way, she missed a beat of her knife work, nicking her finger in the process.

   “ITAI!” she yelled out, dropping the knife.

   “Gaki-san, are you okay?” Ai said in a panic, rushing to the younger girl.

   “I- I’m fine, Sensei,” Risa reassured.  I knew I was getting too nervous…

   “You should be more careful!” the older woman scolded.  She looked at the inured finger that was bleeding now from the cut made near the fingertips.  “You can’t leave it like that.”

   Without warning, Ai brought Risa’s finger to her mouth and licked the wound clean by sucking on it.  Risa blushed furiously but her teacher didn’t notice; she was too busy trying to remember where she put the first aid kit.  The bean’s face only turned redder and redder as she felt each swish of Ai’s tongue, running across her finger.  Eventually, the teacher backed away and dropped the student’s hand.

   “I’ll go find some band-aid,” she announced, disappearing into her bedroom.  She was back in less than a minute with a band-aid stuck to her hand.  She peeled it off and wrapped it around Risa’s injured finger; all the while, the bean stared down at her feet in an attempt to hide her burning face.

Holy... :on bleed: :imdead:

The older woman basically picked off every kind of canned food there was in the racks, starting from instant meatballs and soup to canned fruits and beans.  This made Risa smile to herself; the teacher really didn’t know how to cook, did she?

But surprisingly, Takahashi-sensei made her way to the vegetable and fruit section next.  She walked around for a while, and picked off a couple greens from the cool racks.

“I don’t,” Ai admitted.  “But eating that bento of yours today made me feel a little embarrassed, to be honest.  I feel like I should still try.  I look at some books and experiment or something.”
....or not?

“D-don’t burn down the kitchen or anything…” she muttered, trying to hide the effect of the teacher’s smile on her.
oh come on...she is the Takahashi Ai...she will positive burn it down...

“How did it start raining so hard already?” Ai remarked, yelling a little to be heard over the heavy pour of rain.
Because aou are the Ame-Onna :D :D :D

 
Quote
Did she just invite me to her home? Risa thought, her eyes widening.  Well, she’s a teacher; she worries about her students all the time.  I guess it doesn’t really have a special meaning or anything.  Not like I want there to be a special meaning.  But it’s true that I can’t really get home from here…
XD XD XD XD

“Deep breaths, Gaki-san,” the teacher wheezed.

   “You’re not the one to be speaking, Sensei,” Risa huffed back.

   “Touché,” the teacher chuckled.
firls you need more exercise :P

The apartment was pretty small, but big enough for one person.  The living room was stretched out to the left while the joint kitchen-dining room was located on the right.  Everything was pretty empty except for the basic furniture; there were no pictures or decorations yet.
Simple and Clean

   “No ‘buts’.  You.  Bathroom.  In.  Now.”
Just like Aichan extrem short sentence XD

Quote
   “Gaki-san, I’m coming in.”

   “Wait, what?”

   Risa covered the front of her body with her arms as her teacher walked right into the bathroom.  But her body was immersed in the water so it wasn’t visible anyway.  But Risa still felt conscious; she was naked while she and her teacher were in the same room!

   “No need to feel shy, Gaki-san,” Ai chuckled.  “We’re both girls here.”

   “Uh… girls,” Risa nodded.  “Um, right.  Yeah.  Totally.”  She’s right, so why am I feeling embarrassed?  I’ve seen Kameha naked bunch of times in onsens
Easy you like aichan :) :) :)

I’m seriously becoming a pervert, Risa thought, sighing.
:w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

It was the quick beeping of the fire alarm going off.  Risa gasped as she ran out of the bathroom and into the kitchen.  Ai was spraying mists of water at the stove, which was fuming with gray smoke now, with a fire extinguisher.  The beeping soon stopped and Ai coughed while waving the smoke away.

   “Could you please open the window for me, Gaki-san?” she asked.

   “What happened, Sensei?” the bean demanded while being obedient to her teacher.

   “I, uh… I guess I didn’t control the fire as well as I thought I did?” she said, laughing nervously.
just what I expected :smhid

   “Is this the new teacher that you were talking about before?”

   “Yeah, that’s her.”

   “I thought you didn’t like her?” Risa’s mother said, a smile in her voice.

   “She…” Risa lowered her voice into a whisper and covered her mouth with her hands.  “She’s not that bad.”

   At this point, Ai was already by the bean’s side, grinning.  She motioned for the phone and Risa obliged.

   Ai followed lazily behind and stood next to her student silently as her companion did all the talking.  All she did was take out her credit card, swipe, and put it back in.  After the items were checked out, Risa grabbed a hold of the large plastic bag and marched out of the store.  Ai quickly followed behind and reached for the load, but the bean shook her head and stepped aside.
Long, huh? :lol:

Somehow I can totally see this happening  :lol:

Wow what a chapter of pure TakaGaki fluff  :wub: (Not that I'm complaining) I wonder quite what is going through Ai's head, so far we have really only seen the thoughts of Gaki on thier relationship, I wonder how Ai fees about the two of them together, although of course not really knowing what Ai thinks is intresting and adds mystery, she is in some ways definatly flirtatious with Gaki but it it intentional? or is Ai just like that? Plus now we perhaps have a nme of some sorts to put to Ai's mistake in the past Obaa-chan... hmm what does Ai's grandmother(or someone filling that role anyway) have to do with Ai's mistake, of course it might not have anything to do with Ai's past but just a bad memory....

Shige/Jun next  :w00t: you sure do now how to make me forgive you for not posting in a while don't you!  :D

Chapter 20

   “And now, now, now… What you’ve all been waiting for, or, or…”

   “Hey, cut the fake echo, Linlin.”

   “Aw, but the echo is what makes the announcement cool!”

   “I said cut it.”

   “It’s okay, Linlin, I like your special effects.”

   “Yay!  See, Jun-senpai, Aika says she likes my special effects!”

   Linlin jumped up and down and hugged her smiling girlfriend as Junjun just rolled her eyes and laughed at the silliness of her lackeys.  Sayumi just raised an eyebrow, taken aback by the bright energy of the younger girls; were they really delinquents?

   “Will you just say what you need to say, and not so loudly?” Junjun grinned.  “Nobody else in the street cares anyway.”

   The four girls were standing in front of Café Buono.  Everybody was still in their school uniform, except for Junjun: she had taken the liberty of wearing bagging sweatpants underneath her skirts, and had rolled one side up to her knees.  They had gathered together right after school to settle the bet between the panda and the bunny.  They were smack in the middle of a bustling town: a perfect location to carry out their battle.

   “Oh, fine,” Linlin groaned.  “And now, the much anticipated match between Morning Gakuen’s yankii queen Junjun and the new transfer student, Michishige Sayumi!”

   “The rules are simple,” Aika said.  “This is Operation get-that-number!  Whoever gets the cell phone number of a random person in the streets wins the match!  If Jun-senpai wins, her wish will be granted by Shige-san for a day.  If Shige-san wins, her wish will be granted by Jun-senpai for a lifetime.”

   “Are both players ready?” Linlin asked.

   “Whenever Usa-chan is,” Junjun grinned, winking at the black-haired girl.

   “Whatever,” the bunny muttered.  I have to win this if I want to be rid of this annoying person!

   “Okay, then!” Linlin said.  “Let the game begin!”

   “You can go first, Usa-chan,” Junjun offered.  “Do whatever you need to do to get someone’s number.  But not against their will.”

   “I should be saying that to you,” Sayumi shot back coldly.

   “Ouch, that hurt,” the tall panda sighed.  “But I kind of like it when you’re angry.”

   The bunny groaned as she took a couple steps away from the yankii group.  She looked around in search of a boy that she could get the number of, preferably a cute one.  But the truth was that she was incredibly nervous about this match.  People have told her she’s cute and she believed her looks were above average.  But she also knew she didn’t have many friends because she didn’t really have a way with words… kind words.  Her parents had always told her she needed to be more confident.  But how?

   Finally, Sayumi spotted two teenage boys, wearing a different school uniform, walking towards the café.  She took out her cell phone and clutched it to her chest, trying to gather up as much courage as she could.  When they were close enough, she stepped forward to block their way.

   “Ano!” she squeaked, looking up at the male students.  “Um, excuse me…”

   “Um, yes?” the boy glasses said, raising an eyebrow.  The other boy whispered into his friend’s ear but Sayumi could still hear: “She’s kind of cute…”

   “Ano…” Sayumi started again, looking down now.  “Um… would it be possible to… uh… um… ex… um… change phone numbers with me?!”  Baka, baka, baka!

   “Uh… change phone numbers with you?” the second boy said, making a confused expression.

   “YES!”  No!

   “Uh… we, um… have to go…” the glasses boy said. 

   Before Sayumi could stop them, the two boys quickly walked around her.  The bunny could faintly hear the boy with glasses whisper to his friend: “Doesn’t matter if a girl is a cutie and a freak!”

     The black-haired girl’s hands slid down to her sides.  It really was impossible for her to talk straight in front of people.  All that could come out of her mouth were insults or just plain stupidity that made people think she was crazy.  No wonder she couldn’t make any friends.

   “Aw, Usa-chan, you failed,” a voice behind her said.  A hand rested upon her shoulder.  “That’s okay.  I think those guys were douchebags anyway.”

   “Don’t touch me,” Sayumi growled, whipping around.  “Well, it’s your turn now.  Go!”

   “With pleasure,” the tall panda smirked.

   “Go senpai!” Aika cheered.

   “Ganbatte!” Linlin chimed in.

   Junjun gave a quick wave to her followers and winked at her competitor.  She turned around and took a couple steps forward while searching through the crowd for her prey.  Finally, she set her eyes on a group of girls wearing blue school uniforms, chatting away.  Junjun smirked as she quickly intercepted the four students.

   “Excuse me, ladies,” she greeted, smiling, “but I was wondering if you’re from the nearby Tamago Gakuen?”

   “Yes, we are,” the girl with long black hair said.  “And you are…?”

   “Wait a minute, aren’t you…?” one of the girls with short hair said, her eyes widening.  “Ayaka, isn’t this the girl you were talking about in school today?”

   “Ah, you’re right, Kanon-chan!” the girl with a ponytail exclaimed.  “Junjun, the queen of Morning Gakuen!”

   “The one girl that not even the teachers can touch!” the other short-haired girl squealed.  “Kakkoii!  Yuukarin, you know her!”

   “Of course I know, Saki-chan, everybody knows,” the first girl who had spoken said.  She blushed a little.  “So, um, Junjun-san… what business do you have with us?”

   “Well, I was just going to say your collar is a little wrinkled,” the panda said, smiling.  She reached out and straightened out Yuuka’s collar, causing her friends to gasp and giggle. 

   “Oh!  Um… uh… thank you very much…” the shy girl mumbled.

   “No problem,” Junjun said.  “I know this is kind of rude, but will you girls please exchange phone numbers with me?  I’d love to keep in touch with all of you.  I don’t have any friends in Tamago Gakuen yet.”

   “W-we’d love to!” the ponytail girl called Ayaka blurted out, half giggling and half shouting.  “It’d be an honor!”

   And so, the panda easily won over the phone numbers of four girls.  They skipped away happily, giggling and gossiping to themselves.  Junjun strutted back to her kouhais, who were squealing with joy, and her competitor, who was scowling deeply.

   “You never said they didn’t have to be of the opposite gender,” Sayumi growled.

   “I never said they had to be of the opposite gender,” Junjun smirked.  “I thought we were clear on the rules, Usa-chan.”

   Sayumi’s scowl deeper as she looked down at her feet.  She then bit down on her lips as she noticed a different emotion taking over her anger: it was sadness.  She was sad that she couldn’t win because she was such an antisocial wreck.  She was sad that this girl could be so confident while she could never find the right words.  She was sad that this person had so many friends and fans alike while she had no one.  But it had always been like that… so why did the pain hit now?

   “We had a deal, right Usa-chan?” Junjun grinned.  “Tomorrow, for the whole entire day, you have to do whatever I tell you to do.  That’s my wish.”

   “Fine!” Sayumi yelled, whipping her head up to stare straight into her opponent’s eyes.  “It’s only for one day!  I won’t let you beat me down any more than that!”

   With that, the bunny quickly turned and ran away without looking back.  Aika and Linlin came up behind Junjun to flank her right and left again.

   “Senpai, I think she’s really upset,” Aika said slowly.

   “She’ll be fine,” Junjun sighed.  “It’s not like I’m going to ask her to die or anything.”

   “Well, you already killed her dignity,” Linlin whistled.  “But she said she’s not going let you beat her down anymore.”

   “Yeah, about that,” the tall panda said, scratching her head, “I don’t know where she got the idea that I was trying to beat her down.  The only reason I started this game was so that she would stop avoiding me so much.”

   “Scared of not being loved by everybody in the world, Senpai?” Aika giggled.

   “Not really,” Junjun chuckled.  “It’s just that girl.  Even if I’m not popular anymore, I feel like I don’t want that girl to hate me.  I want to see her smile.”

   “There’s a challenge,” Linlin grinned.

   “It’s not even because it’s a challenge, which it is,” Junjun contradicted.  “There’s just… something.”

   “Love?” Aika guessed.

   “No way,” Junjun laughed.  “You know I don’t do stuff like that.  It definitely can’t be… love…”

Wow! Another chapter! :cow:

Aww...I kinda feel bad for Sayu because she doesn't have much confidence and she was taught to do just that. ;)

Jun doesn't even realize that she had fallen in love with Sayu? :shocked

So...I can't wait for the talk between GakiKame. :roll: Hopefully, there would be a flashback on what TakaGaki's morning was like..? :mon misch:

you know, I meant to stop at chapter 10 and then come here to thank you, before calling it a day.

somehow I ended up here at 4:24 in the AM, sleepy but happier. It was absolutely impossible to stop reading. I was looking for Rokkie/Gokkie fic to get to know them better, in a sense. I love your characterization of the girls.

thanks for a great story- I look forward to more.

good night,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 21

   “And this was also the year that the Shoguns gained power,” Takahashi-sensei lectured, writing the notes on the board.  “You can find this information in chapter 7, so make sure to study it.  The first Shogun was— Kamei-san, that’s strike one for being late— Minamoto no Yoritomo, who ruled from 1192 to 1199.”

   The entire class shifted towards the back as everyone craned their necks to spot Eri, who had attempted to come into the room silently while crouching to hide herself.  Couple students snickered as Eri straightened her back and laughed nervously.

   “Sumimasen, Sensei,” the turtle apologized.

   “Please take your seat and don’t interrupt the class, Kamei-san,” Takahashi-sensei said, still writing on the board.

   “How did she even see me without turning around?” Eri mumbled under her breath as she took her seat next to the bean.

   “Strike two for talking, Kamei-san,” Takahashi-sensei chirped, causing Eri to clasp her hands over her mouth.  The teacher turned around and smiled.  “Word of advice: try not to get a third strike.”

   “Hai…” Eri mumbled, sinking into her chair.  She quickly took out her notebook and pencil as Takahashi-sensei continued on with her lecture.  The turtle turned to look at her friend next to her; Risa was trying to mouth something

   “Why are you late?” she asked.

   Eri looked up at her teacher, who seemed preoccupied with writing notes on the board.  But she wasn’t taking any more chances.  The turtle ripped out a page of her notebook and started to write down her answer.  Then, watching for the right chance, she slipped the paper to the bean.

I was walking Reina to school.
I tried to confess to her again, but I failed T^T

   Risa shook her head while rolling her eyes.  She folded the paper and quickly wrote down a reply before passing the note back.

Aho Kame.
You have to tell her someday!
Just blurt it out before it gets too late!

   Eri made a face at her friend and mouthed silently: “I know that!”  She sighed and picked up her pencil to start writing the long lecture on the board.  But suddenly, her eyes lit up as she remembered something.  Eri quickly wrote down something on the note page before tossing it on Risa’s desk.

By the way, what happened last night?
I called your house but your mom said
you were sleeping over at Takahashi-sensei’s?  Is it true?

   The bean’s cheeks slowly turned pink as she read the note.  She looked up at the teacher who was still concentrating on teaching the course material.  Risa chewed on her lips for a while before slowly writing down a reply.

I was helping her shop for kitchen utensils.
It started to rain so we went over to her house.
And then it started to pour so I got stuck there.

   Eri narrowed her eyes and smirked as she read her friend’s note.  She turned to look at the bean but Risa was now furiously writing down the lecture on the board, trying to keep her mind off of something.  The turtle scribbled down a couple words and threw the note back onto her friend’s desk.

Something definitely happened, I can tell!
Give me all the dirty details!

   Risa frowned as she felt her face heat up even more.  She mouthed to her friend: “Nothing happened!”  But Eri only mouthed back: “Uso!”  The bean rolled her eyes and thought for a moment.  Something certainly had happened: she had slept on the same bed as her teacher.  When she had woken up that morning… oh boy.

^^^

   Risa opened her eyes to the sunlight seeping through the blinds.  Her eyes whirled around for a while, trying to figure out where she was.  Then she remembered she had slept over at Takahashi-sensei’s house.  And that she was crying so she just slipped into bed with her… What was she thinking?

   Sighing, Risa tried to move but found herself completely bound.  She raised an eyebrow as she looked down at herself and flipped open the blankets.

   Her teacher’s arms were constricting her waist tightly, preventing her from moving.  Ai had her face buried in the bean’s chest, which made Risa blush a little.  Oh, what an awkward position to be in…

   “Um… Sensei?” Risa whispered softly.  She cleared her throat and tried again.  “Sensei…?”

   At that moment, Ai mumbled something incoherent to herself and tightened her hold on her student even more, practically cutting off her blood circulation.  Risa gasped, trying to get some oxygen down her throat.

   “Sensei!” Risa wheezed, trying to pry her teacher off of her.  “Sensei, I can’t… breath!  … Sen—WOAH!”

   With a loud yell, the bean toppled off the bed and hit her head on the carpeted floor, but freeing herself from the constricting arms in the process.  Ai jerked awake and gasped.  She looked down from her bed and raised an eyebrow.

   “Gaki-san?” she said in a confused tone.  “What are you doing down there?”

   “… I’m never sleeping over again, Sensei,” Risa grumbled.  She was in a pretty awkward position: her legs were still tangled in the blankets but her entire body was wedged in between the bed and the wall causing her neck to bend in a pretty uncomfortable way.

   “Wait, were you sleeping in bed with me last night?” Ai asked, still unsure of what was going on.  “Did you have a nightmare?”

   “I didn’t have a nightmare, you did!” Risa whined, trying to get herself up but failing.

   “… Oh.  OH.  Oh gosh… I’m so sorry about that, Gaki-san,” Ai said, figuring out what must’ve happened.  “I guess it’s just the new atmosphere and all… it’s not hard to fall asleep but it’s hard to stay asleep.”

   “It’s okay, I understand,” Risa mumbled, remembering the way her teacher had cried during the night. 

   “But I had a pretty sound sleep this time,” Ai said smiling.  “I guess it’s because you were there, Gaki-san.  Thank you.”

   “No problem… but I’m not doing it again,” Risa groaned.  “And, uh… a little help here please?”

   Ai laughed as she got off the bed and helped her student pop herself out of the wedge.  She smiled again and whispered, “Thank you”.  Risa only blushed and looked down.

^^^


   The bean sighed as she looked at her turtle friend.  Eri was mouthing something furiously while miming a pencil in action.  Risa rolled her eyes and started to scribble down on the note.

I took a shower, we had dinner together, and we talked. 
Then we went to bed.
She was really nice about letting me stay, I’m grateful.

   Eri sighed, frustrated.  She mouthed at her friend: “Boring!”  Risa bit down on her lips and started to think for a while.  Then, she snatched the note from desk and started to write again.

For one thing, I don’t think I hate her anymore.
In fact, I may even like her.
But not like-like.  Just like.

   Eri smirked as she read the note.  She didn’t even wait another second to write down a reply.

Who knows?  Maybe you like girls too.
I think you like-like her.

   Risa blushed a little as she read this.  Eri kept her smile, though she was kind of surprised.  She had expected her bean friend to roll her eyes and just scoff at her teasing, but she had taken it seriously!  Maybe she really did like the teacher…

Actually, in all honesty… you may be right.

   The turtle gasped softly and looked up at her friend, who was furiously taking notes again.  Eri grinned to herself and quickly wrote down a reply.

I knew it, you are so in love with Takahashi-sensei. 
But hey, who knows?  Maybe she like-likes you too.

   As the turtle attempted to pass the note to the bean again, someone snatched it from her hands.  The two friends looked up at their teacher, who was waving the note page in her hand.

   “Passing notes in class, Kamei-san and Niigaki-san?” Takahashi-sensei smiled.  “That’s strike one for you, Iinchou, and strike three for you, Kamei-san.  Please write a 500 word essay about why disrupting class is not a good idea; have it on my desk by the end of the day.”

   “Hai…” the turtle answered weakly, slumping her shoulders. 
   Risa started to mutter something under her breath; she hated having any imperfection on her record, even if it was just a slight blemish. 

   The history teacher walked back up to the front of the class room.  But instead of throwing away the note that was passed back and forth, she tossed it on her desk and continued on with her lesson.  Eri started to have a minor panic attack while Risa’s cheeks blushed a furious red.  If Takahashi-sensei read that… what would she do?

   They could only pray that the teacher would never see that note.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OMG! I so love Takahashi-sensei  XD

Quote
I was walking Reina to school.
I tried to confess to her again, but I failed T^T
Aww

Quote
By the way, what happened last night?
Juicy  :drool: lol

Quote
Something definitely happened, I can tell!
Give me all the dirty details!
OMG  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl: Let the teacher take that note and Strike 3  :lol:

Quote
Something certainly had happened: she had slept on the same bed as her teacher.  When she had woken up that morning… oh boy.
:w00t: oh boy?  :drool: lol

Quote
Her teacher’s arms were constricting her waist tightly, preventing her from moving.
:wriggly:  :wriggly:  :wriggly:

Quote
Ai had her face buried in the bean’s chest,
Very lovely to imagine  :heart:

Quote
“Sensei!” Risa wheezed, trying to pry her teacher off of her.
Sensei is strong   :D

Quote
“Sensei, I can’t… breath!  … Sen—WOAH!”
What happened?  :w00t:  Sensei touched the bean somewhere?  :w00t:

Quote
“What are you doing down there?”
Oh goddess of goddesses  :wahaha:  :wahaha:  :wahaha:

Quote
“… I’m never sleeping over again, Sensei,” Risa grumbled.
Aww, please don't say that

Quote
her legs were still tangled in the blankets but her entire body was wedged in between the bed and the wall causing her neck to bend in a pretty uncomfortable way.
Poor Mame  XD

Quote
“Did you have a nightmare?”
XD

Quote
“No problem… but I’m not doing it again,” Risa groaned.
lol, like I, and everyone, would believe that   :roll:

Quote
She mouthed at her friend: “Boring!”
Oh Eri, I wanna spank you right now  :lol:

Quote
Actually, in all honesty… you may be right.
Sensei! take that note and read it!!!!! lol

Quote
The two friends looked up at their teacher, who was waving the note page in her hand.
Busted  :on lol:  :on lol:  :on lol: Now, Sensei, READ IT!  :luvluv1:  :luvluv1:  :luvluv1:

Quote
Eri started to have a minor panic attack while Risa’s cheeks blushed a furious red.
:on lol:  :on lol:  :on lol:

hmmm.... I must be dreaming.. **pinch** :mon cheek: Owwieee! It- it's true! :w00t: You updated again! Three days in a row~ I kept on mumbling, "What a good day this is!" :mon dance:

I laughed when Kame asked for the "dirty details"  :rofl:

hehe...I totally love the morning scene! :mon inluv: That was soo cute! :inlove:

I'm thinking that Ai-chan might read it(cuz' next is TakaGaki), but then maybe not since she's such a nice teacher(not in grading) that wouldn't pry into people's businesses. :mon dunno:

That was so funn to read! :mon roll:

I'm so excited about next chapter! :mon trudge:

Reading more chapters of this Fic made this a great Thanksgiving break :twothumbs

The morning scene was funny, Gaki-san couldn't breathe cuz of Ai-chan's death grip on her.
Quote
“… I’m never sleeping over again, Sensei,” Risa grumbled.

I highly doubt that XD

Can't wait for the next chapter of TakaGaki goodness  :heart:
What if Ai-sensei reads the note, I wonder what her reaction will be.
Why do I have a feeling something bad or good is going to happen. :?
And will Eri finish writing that essay in time?!?! :lol:

 :kneelbow: thank you for this sweet AiRisa moment


ch20
LOOOOOL @Linlin and her echos effect  :wahaha:

Quote
“I don’t know where she got the idea that I was trying to beat her down.  The only reason I started this game was so that she would stop avoiding me so much.”

   “Scared of not being loved by everybody in the world, Senpai?” Aika giggled.

   “Not really,” Junjun chuckled.  “It’s just that girl.  Even if I’m not popular anymore, I feel like I don’t want that girl to hate me.  I want to see her smile.”

   “There’s a challenge,” Linlin grinned.

   “It’s not even because it’s a challenge, which it is,” Junjun contradicted.  “There’s just… something.”

   “Love?” Aika guessed.

   “No way,” Junjun laughed.  “You know I don’t do stuff like that.  It definitely can’t be… love…
:on lol: :kekeke:....don't lie to yourself Junjun....this feeling it's call L-O-V-E~ 사랑

The history teacher walked back up to the front of the class room.  But instead of throwing away the note that was passed back and forth, she tossed it on her desk and continued on with her lesson.  Eri started to have a minor panic attack while Risa’s cheeks blushed a furious red.  If Takahashi-sensei read that… what would she do?

3 updates in a row? You're awesome, and I love you (not in a creepy way... :nervous)

 
Quote
Risa opened her eyes to the sunlight seeping through the blinds.  Her eyes whirled around for a while, trying to figure out where she was.  Then she remembered she had slept over at Takahashi-sensei’s house.  And that she was crying so she just slipped into bed with her… What was she thinking?

   Sighing, Risa tried to move but found herself completely bound.  She raised an eyebrow as she looked down at herself and flipped open the blankets.

   Her teacher’s arms were constricting her waist tightly, preventing her from moving.  Ai had her face buried in the bean’s chest, which made Risa blush a little.  Oh, what an awkward position to be in…

   “Um… Sensei?” Risa whispered softly.  She cleared her throat and tried again.  “Sensei…?”

   At that moment, Ai mumbled something incoherent to herself and tightened her hold on her student even more, practically cutting off her blood circulation.  Risa gasped, trying to get some oxygen down her throat.

   “Sensei!” Risa wheezed, trying to pry her teacher off of her.  “Sensei, I can’t… breath!  … Sen—WOAH!”

   With a loud yell, the bean toppled off the bed and hit her head on the carpeted floor, but freeing herself from the constricting arms in the process.  Ai jerked awake and gasped.  She looked down from her bed and raised an eyebrow.

   “Gaki-san?” she said in a confused tone.  “What are you doing down there?”

   “… I’m never sleeping over again, Sensei,” Risa grumbled.  She was in a pretty awkward position: her legs were still tangled in the blankets but her entire body was wedged in between the bed and the wall causing her neck to bend in a pretty uncomfortable way.

   “Wait, were you sleeping in bed with me last night?” Ai asked, still unsure of what was going on.  “Did you have a nightmare?”

   “I didn’t have a nightmare, you did!” Risa whined, trying to get herself up but failing.

   “… Oh.  OH.  Oh gosh… I’m so sorry about that, Gaki-san,” Ai said, figuring out what must’ve happened.  “I guess it’s just the new atmosphere and all… it’s not hard to fall asleep but it’s hard to stay asleep.”

   “It’s okay, I understand,” Risa mumbled, remembering the way her teacher had cried during the night. 

   “But I had a pretty sound sleep this time,” Ai said smiling.  “I guess it’s because you were there, Gaki-san.  Thank you.”

   “No problem… but I’m not doing it again,” Risa groaned.  “And, uh… a little help here please?”

   Ai laughed as she got off the bed and helped her student pop herself out of the wedge.  She smiled again and whispered, “Thank you”.  Risa only blushed and looked down.

TakaGaki is love~ :gmon shy:

Quote
Who knows?  Maybe you like girls too.
I think you like-like her.

   Risa blushed a little as she read this.  Eri kept her smile, though she was kind of surprised.  She had expected her bean friend to roll her eyes and just scoff at her teasing, but she had taken it seriously!  Maybe she really did like the teacher…

Actually, in all honesty… you may be right.

   The turtle gasped softly and looked up at her friend, who was furiously taking notes again.  Eri grinned to herself and quickly wrote down a reply.

I knew it, you are so in love with Takahashi-sensei. 
But hey, who knows?  Maybe she like-likes you too.
:wriggly:

Quote
As the turtle attempted to pass the note to the bean again, someone snatched it from her hands.  The two friends looked up at their teacher, who was waving the note page in her hand.

   “Passing notes in class, Kamei-san and Niigaki-san?” Takahashi-sensei smiled.  “That’s strike one for you, Iinchou, and strike three for you, Kamei-san.  Please write a 500 word essay about why disrupting class is not a good idea; have it on my desk by the end of the day.”

   “Hai…” the turtle answered weakly, slumping her shoulders. 
   Risa started to mutter something under her breath; she hated having any imperfection on her record, even if it was just a slight blemish. 

   The history teacher walked back up to the front of the class room.  But instead of throwing away the note that was passed back and forth, she tossed it on her desk and continued on with her lesson.  Eri started to have a minor panic attack while Risa’s cheeks blushed a furious red.  If Takahashi-sensei read that… what would she do?

   They could only pray that the teacher would never see that note.

OH SNAP!
Ai-sensei, please read the note!  :mon pray2:
SarangAi, please... :mon cute:

@LovelyGaki: this has been a great break for me too!  but it's back to school tomorrow.... sorry for being a downer :nervous

@YumePouk: LOL love how you wrote in korean XD  And we'll see if your prayer emoticons work...  :twisted:

@kano-chan (again): i know, right!  it's the beauty of this job :P

Woah~On a roll girl! Three chapters in  row! :onioncheer:

Chp. 19: TakaGaki moment is totally love. :wub: It seems that their relationship is getting closer and closer
Chp. 20: Poor Sayu~ It was definitely expected that Junjun will win. After all, she's ubber popular~
Chp. 21: Gah~GakiKame passing notes in class FTW.
              Ai-sensei must have eyes growing on the back of her head. Let's pray that she'll read the note~ :prayers:

In the meantime, I shall pray that Tanakamei will appear soon~~~ :on speedy:
But the good thing about you not writing Tanakamei so often is that their plot isn't advancing much

Minimum plot advancement=SarangAi not getting over Tanakamei to quickly=more tanakamei to read. XD

@sapphire: I'm glad you're thinking of TanaKame that way, because that's actually kinda what's going on right now.  TanaKame is out there, enjoying every moment they have together; i'm just not writing too many closeups of it  :sweatdrop:  But don't worry; in a couple more chapters, it'll be TanaKame CENTER :twothumbs

@LovelyGaki: yeah, i guess... ugh i just finished two papers. but i have another due on tuesday :bleed eyes:  But I'm going to bed now.  let's do our best! :yossi:

Chapter 20: Ha ha, ann easy victory for JunJun then  :lol: I think Lin's announcing was what gave her the victory!  XD I'm kinda getting round to Jun's character a bit more now that I know more about her, I love how she kinda is goin down her own path do get Sayu to like her, maybe because she likes Sayu in return....

Chapter 21: ow can you leave us with the possibility of Ai reading the note!  :panic:  I really want to know if she did or not, It seems as though it is easier for Gaki to admit her feelings for Ai to Eri then I think it ever will be to tell her sensei.... Like the little snippet od TakaGaki fluff you managed to sneak into this chapter BTW  :lol:

Groan~ Why must you make TanaKame so cute? :lol: I'm falling in love with this pairing all over again XD Make Reina find out about Eri's gender and make them breakup. It'll be nice to see these two suffer for a while :w00t: Of course they must kiss and makeout after that lol :D

REASONS WHY I LOVE YOUR WRITING :

1. your story is such a breeze to read.. its refreshing, its easy to read.. even the chapters that you said
was long, it didn't feel like it when i was reading it.. if anything i was still looking for more..  :lol:

2. the way you shift around your stories, there are subplots/sub-stories but it doesn't take away from your
main story.. which makes your fiction even more fun to read.. despite the subplots/sub-stories you are still
able to create one cohesive fiction..  :hee:

3. the humor.. its not just the (punch)line/s of the character, its the entire situation that they were in.. and
the way you keep on coming up with new ones (new funny situation) is just amazing.. one of the reasons why
reading your fiction never gets boring,,  :D

4. the character development.. your characters actually has 'CHARACTER'.. each one possessing quite a
unique personality.. you were not only able to convey the personalities of the main characters but the others
as well.

combine these all together and VIOLA you have one adorable and fun fiction(oh yes!! pun intended)..  :bingo:

Just something real~ short~ :P

Again, I didn't really bother editing so it might be a bit messy :nervous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 22

   Only the sound of the computer keyboard click-clacking in the room resonated.  Occasionally, the loud whirring of the printer decreased the awkward silence but as soon as the sound died down, the teacher-student pair was back to square one. 

   Risa shifted her eyes a little sometimes, catching a glimpse of her teacher typing beside her.  She didn’t know why the air felt so heavy in the computer room; she had thought that they were over all the awkwardness now.  But maybe it was just the bean who felt that way, since she was very conscious of whether her teacher had read the confession note she had confiscated earlier in the day. 

   The truth was, that the whole thing was exciting in a way.  Risa had never “like-liked” someone before, as Eri had put it.  She definitely didn’t want her teacher to find out by reading a note that had been passed back and forth in class.  But a strong part of the bean also hoped that her teacher would quickly realize her feelings.  She started to think back to that morning: the way her teacher had hugged her so tightly… the way she had laughed… the way her voice sounded… Gaki-san… thank you, Gaki-san…

   “Gaki-san.”

   “GAH—WOAH!”

   Risa jolted out of her flashback and tumbled out of her chair.  She fell with her back to the floor while her legs were still on her seat, leaving her in a position very much like the one she was in that morning.  Except this time, she was wearing her school uniform so her teacher had a very good view of her pink underwear.

   “Gaki-san, are you okay?” Takahashi-sensei asked, jumping out of her seat.

   “I’m fine, I’m fine!” Risa reassured, quickly untangling her legs and getting back up to her feet.  She pulled her skirt down unconsciously.  This is so embarrassing!

   “You should wear safety shorts underneath your uniform, Gaki-san,” Ai laughed.  “What if it wasn’t me sitting in this chair?  What if it was some boy?  That would have been dangerous.”

   I would’ve preferred it to be a boy; it’s more embarrassing to be in this situation in front of you, the bean thought, blushing.  “Yeah, I’ll get some safety shorts or something…”

   Before she could do anything more to embarrass herself, Risa quickly sat back down on her chair.  She was about to go back to typing, but her teacher started talking again.

   “Gaki-san,” Ai said, smiling, “I just wanted to thank you.  I takes me a long time to type up these worksheets, I’m glad you’re here to help.  But are you sure you want to spend your lunch time this way?”

   “I don’t mind helping,” the class representative said, shaking her head.  “And if I do this, you’ll get rid of the strike that I have, right?”

   “I will, but is it necessary?” the teacher asked, raising an eyebrow.  "One strike doesn’t affect your grade in anyway; it’s bad only if you get three strikes.” 

   “I don’t like having any blemishes on my records,” Risa mumbled.  “It makes me uneasy.”  Actually, I could care less at this point.  I just want to spend some time with you…

   “That’s very much like you, Gaki-san,” Ai laughed. 

   “Why do you have so many things to type up anyway?” the bean questioned.  “You only teach our grade… why do you need to make so many worksheets?”

   “Because I make different worksheets for every class,” Takahashi-sensei smiled innocently.  “I think students should do their own work.  It’s the same with tests; no one should ask for questions just because they have my class later in the day.”

   “… Sometimes, you really scare me, Sensei,” Risa laughed, feeling a little more relaxed.

   “I think you’re more of a perfectionist than me, Gaki-san,” Ai chuckled along.

   After that short conversation, the student felt a little calmer.  She soon returned to typing as her teacher followed suit.  But soon, the bean’s mind was overwhelmed with thoughts about the confiscated note again.  Risa clenched her teeth as she braced herself for what she was about to do.  She had to be smart about this.

   “Um… Sensei?”

   “Hm?”

   “What did you, uh… do with the note?”

   “What note?”

   “The note that Kameha and I were passing in class…”

   “You’re not getting it back, Gaki-san,” Ai said in a serious tone.

   “But you see, I just, uh, wrote some pretty important notes there for a different class,” Risa said quickly.  “I’m sorry about passing notes during your class, but can I please have the note back?”  Did she read it or didn’t she?  I can’t tell!

   “Oh, that’s not good then!” Ai panicked, making an apologetic face.  “Gaki-san, I already threw away the note.  I just thought you girls were gossiping so I didn’t even bother checking the note.  I’m so sorry, I can go look for it if you’d like?”

   “Oh, it’s fine then!” Risa exclaimed.  “It’s okay, I can just recopy the notes from someone else.  You, um… definitely threw it away?”

   “I’m afraid so,” Ai mumbled.  “I’m really sorry, Gaki-san.  I should’ve checked what the note was about first—”

   “No!” the bean interrupted, smiling nervously.  “Ha-ha… it’s really okay, Sensei, really!  You don’t need to worry about it, okay?”

   “Well, if you say so…”

   The teacher still made a very apologetic face and smiled sadly at her student.  Risa felt terrible, lying to her teacher like this.  But she had no choice; she knew her feelings should be kept a secret.  How could a student’s crush on her teacher ever come true?  It wasn’t realistic at all. 

   Suddenly, the school bell ran, indicating the end of the lunch period.  Ai got up to pick up the rest of the paper that was on the printer tray.  She logged off of her computer as Risa mimicked her actions.

   “I’ll straighten up here, Gaki-san, you should get to class,” the teacher said.  “Thank you so much for helping out.  You saved me a lot of time.”

   “It’s no problem at all,” the bean laughed awkwardly.  “Um, I’ll see you tomorrow, Sensei… I guess.”

   “Yes, I’ll see you tomorrow,” Ai smiled.

   The younger girl quickly bowed to her teacher before skittering out of the computer room.  Skipping down the hallway, she smiled to herself, relieved that her secret was still undiscovered.  If her teacher had read the note by any chance, Risa would’ve had to make her friend into turtle soup that night, so she was glad to be spared from that chore as well.

**  **  ** 

   Ai put down the pile of worksheets on her desk.  She divided the stack of papers into three separate piles and started to straighten them out.  She then slouched down to her chair and leaned back a little, exhausted from all the typing she had done.  She looked around at the other teachers who were busily working on their own desk.  So Takahashi-sensei opened her desk drawer to take out a pen.

   As she withdrew a black pen from inside her desk, something else caught the teacher’s eyes.  Ai dropped the pen down on her desk and removed the small piece of paper from the drawer.  She unfolded it and read it again for about the tenth time that day, ever since she had confiscated it from her student.

For one thing, I don’t think I hate her anymore.
In fact, I may even like her.

   Ai stared at the note with a blank face, revealing no emotion.  She ran her fingers gently over the words and sighed softly.  She smiled a little, yet her expression still seemed somewhat sad… pained, even. 

   You can’t turn back time, Ai, she thought to herself.  It’s too late for you, and for the poor girl.  So what’s my next step…?

So she did read the note. She knows about Gaki-san's crush on her, but is unsure about what to do. Is that because she kind of feels the same way or is she just afraid of hurting her friend?

So Ai did read the note!  :shocked  At first when I saw that she had read the note I just though Aiwas being her kind and caring self by not letting Gaki know that she had read the note and new about her crush, but then, reading the last bit of the chapter it seems as though Ai almost wants to ignore the note in a way 'you cant turn back time' ? I wonder what it is that Ai is afraid of, obviously she does not want to get involved with Gaki, yet, looking at the rest of the chapter, it seems as though, try as she might she cant help herself but to get involved with Gaki, I hope Ai dosn'tdo something silly that may break Gaki's heart.....

Risa jolted out of her flashback and tumbled out of her chair.  She fell with her back to the floor while her legs were still on her seat, leaving her in a position very much like the one she was in that morning.  Except this time, she was wearing her school uniform so her teacher had a very good view of her pink underwear.

:pig laugh:

She read the note? Yay! :otomerika: But Sensei, why did you lie to Gaki-san? You should have jumped on her and started...Okay, i'm gonna stop now.

Ooooooh~the suspense is killing me!! :panic:
In a way, I don't think Ai had taken the note in a bad way
In fact, it seems she also has some sort of feelings for Risa
However, something seems really wrong here... :dunno:
I hope things will work out between the two~
Thanks for the update, and please update soon

Oh btw, I'm not sure if you've ever mentioned this before so I'm asking. What is the age gap between Risa and Ai?
Of course, I'm only asking out of curiosity. Don't worry, I won't stop reading the fic just because I can't accept the age or something. :hee:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 23

   “Mou, Usa-chan, why couldn’t you get here faster?”

   “It’s not my fault, the line was too long!”

   “Excuses aren’t good, Usa-chan.  Lunch period is almost over—”

   “Stop complaining!”

   “That’s no way to speak to the winner of our game!”

   Junjun gasped sarcastically as she put her hand over her heart.  Aika and Linlin snickered behind their leader as Sayumi continued to glare at the three delinquents.  The bunny had just fought a mob war near the cafeteria to get the specific type of bento that the older panda had wanted; she was angry and frustrated and stressed, but she had no choice.  After all, she had lost the bet with the yankii leader and was required to do whatever she said for the whole day.

   “Come over here and sit, Usa-chan,” Junjun grinned, motioning for the new girl to sit across from her. 

   “Can’t I just give you the bento and go?” Sayumi moaned.

   “No, we’re all going to eat together,” the panda said.

   The bunny quickly scanned class room; everybody seemed to be going about their own business.  But the three yankiis as well as Sayumi all knew they were being watched.  After all, the delinquent cool queen of the school was, for some odd reasons, expressing the desire to eat with the socially awkward new girl.  It was the most unusual match. 

   But having no choice in the matter, Sayumi trudged towards her “master-of-the-day” and sat down in front of her.  She placed the bento on the desk and opened it.  She held out a pair of chopsticks to Junjun but the tall girl shook her head.

   “I want you to feed me, Usa-chan,” she grinned.

   “You have hands, don’t you?” the bunny coldly replied.  “Eat it yourself.”

   “Whatever I wish for, remember?” Junjun reminded, smirking.

   Sayumi pouted angrily before breaking the wooden chopstick apart and opening the bento box.  She went for the first thing in sight, which was a piece of chicken.  As soon as she picked it up, Junjun gently took her wrist and navigated the food to her mouth.  The panda chewed a couple times before swallowing.

   “Oishii,” she smiled.  “This is my favorite.  Thanks for getting it for me, Usa-chan.”

   The black-haired girl said nothing.  For some reason, she couldn’t take her eyes of the yankii.  There was something about her… the way she looked at her… Sayumi abruptly shook her head and looked away.

   “Don’t look at me like that,” she grumbled.

   “What way?”

   “The way you’re looking at me right now!” Sayumi yelled.  “You think that you can just turn on your charm just like that in front of anyone and get any girl you want.  Well, I’m not like that.  After today, we’ll have nothing to do with each other.”

   “… Well, I wasn’t trying to do anything right now,” Junjun chuckled.  “But this is kind of interesting; do I really have the ability to just switch my charms on and off like that?”  She turned around to her two lackeys.  “Do I?”

   “It’s a scary talent,” Aika nodded.

   “You made a lot of girls cry,” Linlin agreed.

   “You had me going for the first five minutes when we met each other,” Aika admitted.

   “Yeah, what she said— wait, what?”  Linlin abruptly turned to face her girlfriend with a blank face. 

   “She had me going for five minutes,” Aika giggled.  “But you still have me going for three years and much more.”  She gave a quick peck on the shorter panda, who then grinned as her cheeks blushed pink.

   “Back on topic,” Junjun laughed, turning around to face the bunny once again, “if you’re already conscience of my charms or whatever, Usa-chan, then I’d say resistance is futile at this point.”

   “She’s right,” Aika nodded.

   “Welcome to Junko-land,” Linlin announced, “where you will wallow in her majesty’s charms and never be able to escape.”

   “This is so stupid,” Sayumi muttered under her breath.

   So with the bunny’s continuing grumbling and the panda’s constant grinning and teasing, everybody somehow managed to finish their lunch.  And, of course, the job of cleaning everything up was left for Sayumi as well.

   The black-haired girl walked down the stairs with three empty bento boxes in her arms alone with a plastic bag full of garbage.  Since she and the three yankiis were the last to finish their meal, the class duty person had already taken out the garbage.  So Sayumi had to return the empty bento box to the cafeteria by herself and take the garbage outside to the dumpsters. 

   The bunny quickly skittered to the cafeteria, returned the trays, and ran outside to the courtyard.  She wanted to quickly finish her chore and go back to class; the last thing she wanted was to be late and be noticeable.  Her goal was to blend in.  But perhaps it was already too late for that, what with the queen of the school following her around all the time. 

   Suddenly, a group of girls jumped in the bunny’s way, causing her to stop and stumble back in surprise.  The girls were all glaring at her; the one in the middle stepped forward a little and smiled.

   “Michishige-san, where are you going in such a hurry?” she asked, obviously acting.

   Sayumi stared for a little while then looked away.  She decided that she didn’t have time for this so she just clutched onto the garbage bag in her hand and attempted to walk around the band of girls.  However, they only side-stepped along with her.

   “Hey, where do you think you’re going?” the lead girl said.  “Don’t ignore us, new girl.”

   “What do you want from me?” Sayumi growled.

   “Don’t give us that attitude!” the middle girl yelled.  “You’ve really been getting on our nerves these days!”

   “Yeah, don’t get cocky just because Junjun is giving you a little bit of attention,” another girl said.

   “Just leave me alone,” Sayumi said quietly. 

   A crowd was starting to gather, and she knew most of them were enemies.  They all worshipped Junjun after all; it was just jealousy.  Not like there was anything to be jealous about… All she wanted to do was just get out of there.  But when she tried to leave again, the group of girls pushed her back and snatched the garbage bag away from her hands.

   “Hey, give that back!” the bunny yelled, reaching for it but failing to get it.

   “Are you ordering us?” one of the girls said.  “Who the hell do you think you are?”

   “We’ll teach you a lesson!”

   One of the girls quickly ripped open the garbage bag and flipped it backwards over Sayumi’s head.  All the leftover food and garbage tumbled out and engulfed the black-haired girl, who stood there covering her head, merely whimpering for no other voice could come out.

   “Suits you right!” one of the bully girls laughed.  “You think you’re so pretty and superior but all we see is the you right now: garbage!”

   “Well, that’s not a very nice thing to say.”

   Everybody gathered in the courtyard looked up in alarm at the person who had just spoken from the second floor of the school building.  The bully girls gasped as they started to panic.  The crowd stirred, not knowing how to react towards this sudden appearance. 

   Junjun was looking down at the crowd from the second floor, one foot on the windowsill.  She wasn’t forcing a glare nor she was frowning; her face was quite expressionless and smooth.  But that was the terror of the yankii queen; her ice cold eyes sent chills up the bully girls’ spines.  Sayumi had never seen Junjun get so serious.  Aika and Linlin had similar looks, but their eyes were a little softer.

   Suddenly, the older panda jumped out of the window, swung on the nearby tree branch, and landed in a crouch on the ground.  Linlin was about to follow along but Aika shook her head.

   “Uh-uh, I’m not jumping,” she mumbled.  “I just ate.  I’m taking the stairs.”

   The two girls disappeared from the window on the second floor and the attention went back to the yankii leader on the ground.  All the girls in the courtyard watched in silence as Junjun walked towards Sayumi, who was still standing stiffly with her head down, covered in garbage.  She took one look at the still bunny and continued walking towards the bullies.

   “J-junjun!” one of the girls said, laughing nervously.  “We were just… um… that is…”

   Without warning, the yankii’s fist flew straight towards the girl’s face.  The middle girl shrieked as she shut her eyes tightly and stiffened.  However, the pain did not come.  The girl slowly blinked her eyes open again to see Junjun’s fist right in front of her eyes.  The panda’s eyes were still cold.

   “If I didn’t rethink my actions just now,” she said slowly, “you would be in the hospital, severely injured or dead.”

   With that, Junjun whipped around, grabbed Sayumi’s wrist, and dragged her off into the school building.  She bumped into Aika and Linlin right by the door.

   “Clean up for me, will you?” the leader ordered, still expressionless.

   “Yes, ma’am,” Linlin answered.

   After the two black haired girls went into the building, Aika skipped into the middle of the still silent courtyard.  She smiled at the bullies whose eyes were wide in terror now and made eye contact with the rest of the crowd.

   “Listen carefully, minna!” she announced energetically.  “Jun-senpai was able to control herself this time around so you’re all lucky.  Give yourself a pat on the back!”  Then, Aika’s eyes changed to give her smile a different meaning.  “But if anybody bothers Shige-san from here on out, they’ll have to answer to Jun-senpai, Linlin… and me.”  She giggled and winked at one of the bully girls, who looked like she was about to pass out.

   The crowd soon dispersed, murmuring to themselves.  Half of them were still frightened by Junjun’s character change.  The other half was frightened of Aika’s subtle but dangerous announcement.  Everybody knew what Aika was capable of, despite her cute looks.  But nobody wanted to experience her talent firsthand.

   She’s my girlfriend, Linlin thought, sighing, but she frightens even me sometimes…

**  **  ** 

   “Ouch!  Let go, Junjun— ow!  That hurts!”

   Sayumi continued to complain as she got dragged down the hall, into the gym, and into the locker rooms.  Junjun hadn’t said a word nor showed a hint of a smile.  The truth was that the bunny was scared; so there was a legitimate reason why the panda was considered a delinquent, despite being one of the smartest students in the school.

   Junjun quickly pushed the new girl into a shower stall and grabbed the shower head.  Before Sayumi could turn around, the panda turned the faucet and sprayed her back with cold water, causing her to shrivel up in a corner.

   “Kya!  It’s too cold!  Junjun!”

   “It’ll get warmer, just stay still,” the yankii said quietly.

   Finally, she was talking!  That made the bunny relax a little; maybe she was going to return to her goofy self now. 

   As promised, the water soon turned warm enough for Sayumi to face her savior properly.  Junjun was still expressionless, but her eyes were softer now.  She was trying to calm herself down; she knew the limits she could go to before exploding completely.  And now was the time to bring her scale back down.

   Junjun continued to water down the bunny, who still had her school uniform on. 

   “Take your clothes off,” the panda ordered.

   “Excuse me?”

   “Take it off.  You smell terrible; just take a quick shower right now.  You can change into your gym uniform after.”

   “Um… I don’t have a gym uniform yet… They didn’t have my size so they had to order a new one.”

   “Wear mine then.  Come on, hurry up!  We’re already late for class.”

   Before Sayumi could protest more, Junjun shut the shower curtains and went to her locker.  Meanwhile, the wet bunny slowly started to take off her uniform.  She decided to keep her undergarments on, even though they were soaked as well.  She just showered the way she was and quickly dabbed some soap on her body and hair before washing again. 

   Finally, Sayumi turned off the faucet and covered her nearly bare body, holding her wet uniform in front of her. 

   “Uh… Junjun?”

   “I’m right here,” the voice on the other side of the curtain echoed.  “You can use my gym towel.  It’s clean; I just washed it yesterday.  Hand me your uniform.”

   A hand entered the shower stall, holding a large towel with the Morning Gakuen logo printed on it.  Sayumi carefully took the towel and placed her uniform into the hand.  She quickly dried her body and wrapped the large towel around herself.  She slowly opened the curtain, expecting to see the yankii standing there, but there was no one.  Instead, on the benches laid out across from the rows of shower stalls, a set of red gym uniform was laid out.  The bunny quickly caught on, and helped herself to the clothing.  They were a little too big on her but it felt soft and warm.  She breathed in the scent on the sleeves; it smelled just like her…

   “Stop being a perv, Usa-chan.”

   The black-haired girl jumped and looked up to see a grinning panda, walking over with a plastic bag in hand.  Her smile was back now; the seriousness was gone. 

   “I’m not a perv!” Sayumi yelled, blushing.

   “If you want to smell me, you can just smell me directly, you know?” Junjun continued to tease, chuckling.  “No need to resolve to just my clothes.”

   “Ugh!  You’re despicable!”  Sayumi growled.  She had thought that maybe Junjun had a nice side to her; after all, she had saved her from those bullies.  But it looked as though they were back to square one.

   “Says you,” the taller girl laughed.  She held out the plastic bag that she was holding on to.  “Here’s your uniform.  Take it home, wash it, and dry it.”

   “Yeah…” the bunny mumbled.  As she took the bag, something else on the panda’s hand caught her eye.  “Hey… what’s that?”

   Gasping, Sayumi grabbed the yankii’s hand and looked at the palm.  Her guess was right; there was a red scratch on Junjun’s hand, drawing blood.  There were still bits of grated skin near the edges of the cut.

   “You’re bleeding!” Sayumi said, horrified.  “How did this happen?  Did… did you do this when you swung down from the tree earlier?”

   “It’s no big deal, Usa-chan,” Junjun scoffed.  “Although it’s kind of interesting to see you care so much about me.  This is new.”

   “Baka.”  Of course I care; you got hurt trying to save me…

   “Are you thinking that you’re to blame for this?” the panda said, narrowing her eyes.  “Don’t go thinking that; it was my carelessness.  You had nothing do with this.  But it’s good to know that you care; it means you have some sort of sensible side to you.”

   “Are you making fun of me?”

   “Don’t I always?” Junjun shrugged, still smiling.

   “Wait here,” Sayumi grumbled, rolling her eyes.  She walked over to almost empty gym locker and opened it.  She took out something, closed the locker, and went to the sink.  She took some paper towel, drenched it in water, and came back to face Junjun. 

   “Hold out your hand,” she ordered.

   The panda cocked her head curiously but obeyed the bunny.  Sayumi carefully wiped the blood away from Junjun’s palm.  Having a clearer look at the scratch, Sayumi fumbled with something in her grasp, and finally managed to stick a band-aid on the taller girl’s hand.  Junjun looked down and burst out laughing.

   “What’s so funny?” Sayumi glared.

   “Th… This… Usa-chan… you… bunny band-aid!” Junjun giggled, unable to stop.  “You’re 17 years old and you still use bunny-patterned band-aids?”

   “Why not?  They’re cute…” Sayumi mumbled, her cheeks blushing bright red.  “Stop laughing!”

   “Ha-ha-ha!  Sorry, I just… Ha-ha!  Sorry, Usa-chan,” Junjun laughed, finally managing to sigh and calm down.  She grinned and spoke sincerely to the girl in front of her.  “Thank you.  I really appreciate this.”

   “… You’re a terrible person,” the black-haired girl mumbled, keeping her gaze down.  “I’m glad this is only a one-day deal where I need to follow your orders.”

   “Well, if you want revenge on me…” Junjun said, slowly, “we could do another challenge?”

   “… Another?”

   “Something simple.  Like maybe… janken?”

   Sayumi hesitated for a while.  On one hand, she didn’t want to lose again.  But on the other, she really wanted to slave the panda around like she had done to her… And janken seemed like a pretty fair game; they both had equal chances of winning and losing.

   “… Deal,” the bunny answered.  “Same conditions as last time, right?”

   “Yup,” Junjun grinned.  “It’s settled then.  We’ll decide on a date later; for now, we should go to class.”

   “Oh my gosh, class!” Sayumi yelled out loud.  “I completely forgot!”

   The bunny quickly ran out of the locker room, dashing as fast as she could towards her classroom.  Junjun, on the other hand, followed behind lazily, staring at the bunny band-aid on her palm.

   Just like I thought, she smiled, there is a sweeter side to this girl.

Somehow, I knew there would be a group of girls stopping Sayu in her tracks. :lol: And then Jun to the rescue, of course! :w00t:

Sayu seemed to have softened up a bit.  :heart: She actually cares about Jun and the bunny band-aid was  XD

Lacking? I think it's a really great JunSayu chappy! :twothumbs

OooOOoohh!! Next chappy?? Reina going to find out about Eri(ku)'s real gender?! :panic:

Jun ordering Sayu to feed her is hilarious, I should have expected it. I'm glad that Aika and Lin were teasing as well, Sayu may grumble, but I'm sure she'll get used to those two quickly.

Quote
   “You had me going for the first five minutes when we met each other,” Aika admitted.

   “Yeah, what she said— wait, what?”  Linlin abruptly turned to face her girlfriend with a blank face. 

Can imagine the double take here. XD

I guess I should have also expected the fangirls to get jealous and attack, but i didn't. So instead, I wanted to see the puppy and the little panda unleashed on them, I've so been wondering about a certain knife skills that was mentioned earlier.

And of course it ends with a bunny band aid and another competition. I think that might be a reoccurring theme in their relationship. :lol:

Poor Sayu had to take Jun's commands and then get trash thrown on her, but Jun really likes her so much to go that far but Sayu seems to be warming up XD

Quote from: SarangAi
   

   “But this is kind of interesting; do I really have the ability to just switch my charms on and off like that?”  She turned around to her two lackeys.  “Do I?”

   “It’s a scary talent,” Aika nodded.

   “You made a lot of girls cry,” Linlin agreed.

   “You had me going for the first five minutes when we met each other,” Aika admitted.

   “Yeah, what she said— wait, what?”  Linlin abruptly turned to face her girlfriend with a blank face. 

   “She had me going for five minutes,” Aika giggled. “But you still have me going for three years and much more.”  She gave a quick peck on the shorter panda, who then grinned as her cheeks blushed pink.


AHHHHHHH.. Junjun pretending not to be aware of her charms?!.. lol.. there is a reason why you have groupies at your school..  :lol:
and nice save there Aika?!..  :P looks like you picked-up some of Junjun's womanizing charm..  :on GJ:

 :shocked
 :rofl:
That is priceless!!  :lol:

I like how Sayu's personality kind of matches her real one.  :roll:
Just watched the Mujack show and they did a segment on there where they were trying to expose her sweeter side from her normal poison tongue side XD
It was really cute.

anyway, I dunno if it's a good thing or now, but i love how you're keeping each relationship separate. Like one chapter is TakaGaki, the other is TanaKame, and then JunSayu, etc etc. It's like there's 3 different stories, but you can see how they're all connected...i dunno, does that make sense?
lol

I can't wait for the next!!! :)

   The bunny quickly scanned class room; everybody seemed to be going about their own business.  But the three yankiis as well as Sayumi all knew they were being watched.  After all, the delinquent cool queen of the school was, for some odd reasons, expressing the desire to eat with the socially awkward new girl.  It was the most unusual match. 

Aww, well I think we know why Jun is sitting with her, don't we  :wub:

Quote
   
Junjun was looking down at the crowd from the second floor, one foot on the windowsill.  She wasn’t forcing a glare nor she was frowning; her face was quite expressionless and smooth.  But that was the terror of the yankii queen; her ice cold eyes sent chills up the bully girls’ spines.  Sayumi had never seen Junjun get so serious.    “Clean up for me, will you?” the leader ordered, still expressionless.
[/qoute]

Seems as though our JunJun may be getting a bit protective towards Sayu aswell

   
Quote
“Baka.”  Of course I care; you got hurt trying to save me…

What, surely not, is sayu.... concered for Jun?  :shy2:

Just like I thought, she smiled, there is a sweeter side to this girl.

 :luvluv1: aww this is all just to sweet, thaks  Sarang!

BTW is it just me or is Crazy Giggiling Aika ways more sacary than death-stare Jun?  :panic:

@convoy/M: WOW lol thank you so much for that comment!  It's these kind of things that make everything worth it :twothumbs And I'm glad you like my writing, that means a lot too! :cow:

@fallenxangel: lol you HAVE been in lurker mode... it's okay though, no hard feelings.  I understand, we all have lives~ XD

@Michi.Pinku: LOL glad to convert you :P

@convoy/M: sorry for the wait!  I was depressed, like you..  :cry:


So I was depressed all week because of the graduations... I carried around a stuffed orange turtle and wore a panda bracelet for the entire grad. day...  :cry:

And I've been sick.  Apparently, my body has been in a worse condition than I thought.  My doctor said I need to see a specialized doctor for my nose/throat and I need therapy/psychiatrist because I have sleeping disorder... oh lovely week :thumbdown:

So I'm on three different kind of medications now and I'm holding back on the therapy for a little while; I just need to reduce stress, that's all XD

I worked on this short chapter to let you guys know I'm still alive :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 24

   “No, stop doing that, Gaki-san, I don’t want to…”

   “But you promised, Kameha!  Stop being a baby and do as I say!”

   “Itai!  Stop pulling, that hurts!”

   “If you just let go and relax, it wouldn’t hurt!”

   “I really don’t feel up to it, Risa-chan, please stop…”

   “Just get… up… now—GAH!”

   A loud thump was heard in the bedroom as the bean fell backwards onto the floor, letting go of her friend’s ankles in the process.  Eri took this chance to quickly squirm back up to the head of her bed and buried herself under the blankets again. 

   The long week of school was finally over and the weekend greeted the two over-worked students.  They had promised to go out shopping together on Saturday and invite Reina somewhere along the way to properly introduce her to the bean.  But for some reason, the turtle just didn’t want to come out of her shell; she had held on to the head board of the bed until her knuckles turned white while Risa had tried to pull her out by her ankles.  When Eri suddenly let go, Risa had been flung out backwards to land on the floor, bottom first.  The bean jumped back up to her feet and put her hands on her hips.

   “Eri, you’re being a real baby right now!” she growled.  “You should keep the promises that you make!”

   “I know that, and I’m sorry,” the turtle mumbled.  “But you don’t understand; I’m just really exhausted, I need a day to myself.”

   “Didn’t you tell Reina to come out today too?” Risa questioned.

   “Yeah, but I’m going to cancel,” Eri said, her voice muffled under the blankets.  “I just can’t see her today.”

   “Oh, come on,” the bean moaned, rolling her eyes.  “You’re not really sick, are you?”

   “You don’t understand, Risa-chan,” Eri said, poking her head out of the blankets.  “I tried to tell her that I’m a girl every single day this week.  But every single time I try, she somehow manages to get me off-topic and we go on to about how nicely everything worked out for us.  I can’t break her happiness by telling her the truth after that… I just need a day to clear my mind and think things through.”

   “If you want my opinion, I think it’s just easier to tell her as soon as you can,” Risa sighed.  “You can’t hold out forever.”

   “It’s not as easy as you think,” Eri groaned.  “Look, I’m just going to stay home today and think of a different way to tell her.  Okay?”

   “…Okay, it’s your choice,” Risa said finally.  “But whether you’re going out or not, I’m still going to go shopping; I actually have a couple things I need to buy.”

   “Do what you want,” Eri mumbled, pulling the covers over herself again.

   The bean turned to leave the room but stopped, feeling that she had been a little too harsh on her friend lately.  She knew how mom-ish she should be and, as a result, a pain in the ass.  So she turned around and sighed.

   “Look, Kameha, I’m sorry for being rough on you,” Risa said quietly.  “I guess I’m just being paranoid about things that aren’t even my business.”

   “It’s okay, you just want what’s best for me,” Eri squeaked.  She then stuck her head out again and smiled.  “You always want what’s best for me.”

   “Right,” Risa laughed, broken down by her friend’s cutesy act.  “How about I bring you dinner tonight?  I think my mom is making Korean food.”

   “With kimchi?” the turtle gasped, her eyes sparkling.

   “Yup,” Risa grinned.  “I’ll bring it up as soon as I get it.”

   “Gaki-san, daisuki!” Eri sighed contently.

   “Watashi mo Eri ga suki,” Risa laughed softly.  She turned around and walked out of the room.  Eri could hear her friend moving across the living room and out the front door.  There was the click of the keys and then silence.  That was the positive side of the bean having her spare key; she didn’t need to get out of bed to lock the door.  But of course, the negative side was Risa getting into her house in the first place when she wanted some alone-time.

   Eri quickly reached across to her bedside table and grabbed her cell phone.  She wanted to make the call before she could forget.  She swiftly dialed the number she knew well and held the phone to her ears while lying down on her side.  The person on the other line picked up after a couple seconds.

   “Moshi-moshi?”

   “Reina?”

   “Ah, Eri!” the familiar voice said happily.  “Ohayou!”

   “Ohayou,” Eri answered, smiling.  “Listen, you know how I asked you to meet me outside today?”

   “Yeah, Café Buono at 10 o’clock, right?”

   “Actually, about that, I’m a little sick today so I don’t think I can show up,” the turtle said, trying to make her voice sound hoarse.  “I’m sorry, Reina.”

   “That’s perfectly fine, I don’t want you overexert yourself,” the kitten said.  “Are you feeling okay?  Is it serious?”

   “I’m okay, I just need to rest in bed a little,” Eri said.

   “Are you sure you’ll be okay?” Reina said worriedly.  “Maybe I can come over—”

   “No, don’t come!” the turtle interrupted.  The last thing she wanted was for her girlfriend to come and discover that she wasn’t really sick.  “I don’t want you to catch anything from me.  I’ll probably feel better tomorrow; we can meet then.”

   “Um… okay,” the kitten said reluctantly.  “I guess I’ll see you.”

   “Yeah.  See you.”

   Eri hung up her cell phone and placed it back on the table.  Then, she sprawled across her bed and stretched every muscle in her body while looking forward to a full day of rest and disturbance-free.

**  **  ** 

   “Was that your boyfriend?” Junjun asked, shoving a toast in her mouth.

   “Yeah, it was…” Reina mumbled.  “Wait a minute, why are you all eating breakfast at my house again?!”

   The kitten glared at the three yankiis in her kitchen, helping themselves to a meal.  Junjun was sitting by the table, eating eggs and toast.  Linlin was making more eggs and bacon while Aika was by the counter, watching the toaster timer click by.

   “Because we were sick of getting breakfast at McDonalds,” Junjun answered with her mouth full.  She shook her head dreadfully.  “It’s so unhealthy.”

   “I think we tried everything on the breakfast menu already,” Aika chimed in.

   “Never eat McDonalds for two weeks straight,” Linlin groaned.  “You can literally feel yourself getting heavier.”

   “Well then, don’t eat at McDonalds!” Reina yelled, rolling her eyes.  “I can’t believe you guys are already at my house and I’m not even dressed yet…”

   It was true; while the three delinquent girls were fully dressed for the day, Reina was still clad in sweats and a sweater over a tank-top.  Her hair also hung straight and un-brushed, unlike Junjun’s well combed hair with cornroses on the side.

   “You’re in your PJs,” the taller panda shrugged.  “It’s nothing we haven’t seen.”

   “That’s not the point,” Reina sighed.  “The point is—”

   “What was the phone call about, Tanaka-senpai?” Aika interrupted as the bread popped out of the toaster.

   “Eri said he can’t meet up today, he’s sick,” Reina replied unconsciously.  “Hey, wait a minute, why do I need to answer—”

   “Is it serious?” Linlin cut in, scooping up the finished eggs and bacon onto a plate.  “Maybe you should go visit, senpai.”

   “Yeah, he told me not to come but— hey, I don’t need to tell you guys any of this!” Reina yelled, getting more and more frustrated. 

   “Just tell us what happened,” Junjun grinned.

   The ex-yankii looked around at the girls who were once her followers.  Reina already knew that these girls possessed the skills to keep her on the topic they wanted; they were smart enough for that.  So the kitten just sighed and gave up.

   “Eri told me not to come over because he said he didn’t want me to get sick either,” Reina said.  “But I’m worried, so I think I should go visit him anyway.  Maybe around dinner time.”

   “That’s a good idea,” Junjun nodded.  “Take some food with you; he’ll be happy about that.”

   “Yeah, I think I will,” Reina answered, smiling a little.  It seemed as though she really couldn’t go a day without seeing her boyfriend’s face.  Maybe she was even addicted.  Either way, she didn’t care.  If she was addicted, this was the good kind of drug.  She was sure of it.

Eri is trying really hard to say that she is a girl but it has failed, and supposedly there has to be something that gives it away to Reina, but Reina would be sad though...

The gang is cheap?  They were eating McDonalds for two weeks straight and then decide to invade Reina's house  :lol:

Ooooh~ Some foreshadowing there~ :roll:

Of course Reina is going to come over, unexpected, but Gaki would be there too since she'll be bringing dinner. :D There might be a misunderstanding about GakiKame or revelation of Eri(ku)'s gender. :mon dunno:  :grin:

And....YOU BETTER TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF! :on thumbb:

Take better care of yourself, you! *shakes finger* Don't make us worry!

Quote
   “Just get… up… now—GAH!”

   A loud thump was heard in the bedroom as the bean fell backwards onto the floor, letting go of her friend’s ankles in the process.

Lolololohmigod. :lol:

Quote
They had promised to go out shopping together on Saturday and invite Reina somewhere along the way to properly introduce her to the bean.
Well, I guess by dinner time they're gonna have that introduction, huh? I can only pray for the poor turtle's safety if the gang comes over too. :lol:

Quote
“Right,” Risa laughed, broken down by her friend’s cutesy act.  “How about I bring you dinner tonight?  I think my mom is making Korean food.”
No one can resist the smile!

Quote
“What was the phone call about, Tanaka-senpai?” Aika interrupted as the bread popped out of the toaster.

   “Eri said he can’t meet up today, he’s sick,” Reina replied unconsciously.  “Hey, wait a minute, why do I need to answer—”

   “Is it serious?” Linlin cut in, scooping up the finished eggs and bacon onto a plate.  “Maybe you should go visit, senpai.”

   “Yeah, he told me not to come but— hey, I don’t need to tell you guys any of this!” Reina yelled, getting more and more frustrated.

   “Just tell us what happened,” Junjun grinned.
Think we found something Reina can't resist, either. :lol: :lol:

Quote
“But I’m worried, so I think I should go visit him anyway.  Maybe around dinner time.”
When I read this, I literally said, "Oh my god." XD I can't wait for the next chapter now, I'm envisioning all sorts of possibilities. I think my favored one ends with Gaki getting walloped in the jaw and Takahashi-sensei noticing and caring for the injury. Maybe with a kiss to make it feel better. :inlove:

I predict that Reina might go over at the wrong time
Maybe Eri was in the middle of a shower or changing or something
So, Reina found out this way...

..or maybe it's not time for her to find out yet. :lol:

I still haven't brought myself to watching the graduation yet. I think I won't be able to take it. :cry:

Poor Eri, still trying to think of a way to tell Reina (though I think perhaps she is not trying as hard as she could?) I wonder if part of the reason for her not wanting to see Reina is becasue she is worried Gaki may say something?...

Seeing as Reina was the old leader of the gang she seems to have very little control over Jun/Aika/Lin and they seem to be able to get most of the info they want out of Reina  :lol: It's a nice testement to the fact they were and are a group of friends more than a gang od delinquents, though I still think Jun thinks that there is more to Eri than meets the eye.....

I guess you can take this a Christmas present?  Happy holidays, everyone ~  :onioncheer: :mon love: :mon santa2: :mon santa3: :mon santa4:

*LOL Chapter 25 on the 25th* :lol: XD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 25

   “You are seriously my one and only best friend, Gaki-san!” Eri squealed, clapping her hands together in front of her while jumping up and down. 

   The turtle’s eyes were set on the containers of Korean food that the bean had brought up from her home.  There was a variety of side dishes along with rice, including some seaweed soup, beans, oden, noodles, eggs, and more.  Risa had often brought up Korean food for the turtle before but not this much at a time.

   “Way to accept my food as payment for friendship, Kameha,” the bean grinned.  “You seemed a little down so I guess I cooked a lot more this time around.  Are you feeling any better?”

   “Yeah, a little bit,” Eri sighed.  “I still feel kind of tired but I don’t think I’m really sick.”

   “Do you have a fever?” Risa asked.  She stepped towards her friend and placed her hand on her forehead, comparing it with her own.  “Nope, no temperature.  But Kameha, you smell really bad right now.”  She backed away, wrinkling her nose.

   “It’s because I stayed in bed the whole day,” Eri explained, yawning.  “I probably broke a sweat.”

   “Well then, you should change before you really catch a cold,” Risa said, shooing her friend towards the bedroom.  She turned around and started to set the table but then gasped.  “Oh, I left the kimchi on the counter!  I’m going to round down and get it, okay?  You go change during that time.”

   “Okay,” Eri answered, waving as she closed the door behind her.

   Risa skittered to the front door, put her shoes on, and walked out.  She stopped short as soon as she crossed the threshold, wondering if she should call Eri back to lock the door.  But she was probably going to be back before Eri could finish changing, being the turtle she is, so Risa just decided to leave the door unlocked and walked down the stairs.

**  **  ** 

   Reina nervously checked her watch, looked at her feet, and then up at the elevator again.  She kept on bobbing up and down in place with her hands clenched together.  What could be taking the elevator so long to get to the first floor from the tenth?  It felt as though it had been years since the ex-yankii last pressed the button… although it had only been five seconds.

   Relax, Reina, the kitten told herself.  Take deep breaths… Act like a lady… Keep your cool, girl... the elevator will be here in the next ten seconds, I’m sure of it.

   Reina looked up once more at the elevator count down; the number was at 7th floor now.  Surely, ten seconds was enough.

   Okay, here I go, Reina thought.  Ichi… Ni… San…… Shiiiiiii……  “Damn it, why is it taking so long?!”

   Finally breaking down, Reina yelled out loud and kicked the elevator door, barely leaving a dent.  She then gasped and started to pace around, holding her hands to her chest.

   “Calm down, Reina, calm down,” she mumbled under her breath.  “You don’t want to crack here.  You want to show Eri a happy face so don’t crack here… have some patience…”

   Reina had always hated waiting but considering she was about to see her sick boyfriend just a couple floors up, she was feeling more restless than ever.  They had been together every single day this week yet it seemed as though she couldn’t pass a day without seeing the turtle.

   Before she could get more frustrated and break the elevator door, Reina just decided to climb up the stairs.  Eri didn’t live that high up anyway; it wouldn’t be too tiring of a trip.

   The kitten quickly leaped over the steps, feeling bouncier with each floor.  She finally reached the fifth floor to see a pretty girl with short brown hair coming down the steps.  She looked about the same age as her.  The two girls met eyes; the short-haired girl gave a small smile as Reina gave a polite nod.  The girl that had come down disappeared into apartment 502 as Reina continued to climb the stairs.

   I didn’t know a teenage girl lived below Eri’s home, the kitten thought to herself.  I wonder if she goes to the same school as him…

   As she thought this, the ex-yankii reached the sixth floor in no time and stood in front of 601.  She stared at the number plate before swallowing hard and knocking.  There was no answer.

   Maybe he’s too sick to come out, Reina thought.  “Eri?  Are you home?  It’s me, Reina!”

   Still, only the silence greeted the petit girl.  Feeling a little worried, Reina tried the door handle as she started to think about using the bobby pin in her pocket to pick the lock.  But before she even attempted to, the door opened easily for it was unlocked. 

   That Eri forgot to lock the door, she thought, smiling.  That’s so like him.

   Although the kitten didn’t want to intrude into someone else’s apartment, much less a boy’s, she only stepped in a little bit before calling in softly.

   “Shitsureshimasu,” she said.  “Eri?”

   “In here!” a familiar voice answered.

   Reina took off her shoes and entered the clean apartment.  She slowly made her way towards the kitchen and then her eyes went to the bedroom. 

   “Eri?” she called again, feeling unsure.

   “You came back really fast, Risa-chan.  That was quick!” the voice remarked from the room.

   Who’s Risa-chan? Reina thought, raising her eyebrows.  “Um, I’m coming in, Eri.”  She reached for the door handle, turned, and pushed in.

   “Wait, don’t come in, I’m still changing—”

   Eri turned to look at her intruder and gasped, slowly processing the short girl by the door with her straight hair reaching her chest.  Reina’s eyes widened as she scanned her lover.  The turtle was wearing a pair of sweatpants but her t-shirt was still around her neck, revealing her bare upper body clad in a black bra.  Her white skin, her slim waist, her two breasts… everything was visible.

   “Re… Reina?” Eri croaked, her voice choking in her throat.

   The kitten didn’t answer.  She couldn’t take her eyes off of her “boyfriend’s” body that was so much like a girl’s… better a normal girl’s, maybe even better than hers.  Her mind processed everything slowly and painfully as she started to form words.

   All Eri could do was watch her girlfriend’s facial expressions wrinkle into something horrible.  The voices in her head screamed at her to put on her t-shirt but she was frozen and could not move.  She could feel the intruder’s stare prickling her like a thousand needles.

   “Reina…?” 

   “Eri, you…” Reina breathed, trying to form coherent words, “you’re… a g-girl…?”

   “Reina, I can explain—”

   “You’ve been a girl all along and I never knew?!” Reina shrieked, finally breaking down.  Her expression wasn’t that of anger nor sadness; it was pain and regret.  “You… from the beginning… I thought… but you’re…”

   “Reina, please, I—”

   “Stop!” she screamed.  Her hands clutched her head as she shut her eyes tightly.  “This can’t be real… This isn’t… This can’t… be…”

   Reina looked up to meet Eri’s horrified eyes one more time before running out of the room.  The turtle suddenly felt all her muscles breaking loose so she quickly put on the t-shirt and ran out of the bed room.  She caught her girlfriend’s wrist and spun her around before she reached the door.

   “Reina, please listen to me—”

   “DON’T TOUCH ME!” the shorter girl screamed, snatching her wrist out of Eri’s hand.  She glared up at her “boyfriend” with contempt and no sympathy.  “Don’t you dare touch me again!”

   “Reina, please listen!” Eri pleaded, her heart aching.  “I can explain everything if you just—”

   “You don’t need to explain anything, I saw everything with my own eyes!” Reina screamed again. 

   Her eyes suddenly softened from burning anger to complete sadness.  A single stream of tear was blinked out of her eye and traveled down her cheeks.  Her mouth opened to say something but only gasps of breath came out.  Watching Reina cry only made Eri feel as though her heart was being ripped out.

   “You…” Reina whispered roughly, her voice cracking.  “I trusted you.  But you… lied to me.”

   The word hit Eri’s chest like a sharp knife that was ran through fire beforehand.  Reina bit on her lips to keep herself from crying more but it was no use.  So instead, she glared up at the turtle again with hatred and fury.

   “I never want to see you, ever again,” she said through her teeth.

   With that, Reina dashed out of the apartment and ran down the stairs.  Eri was frozen in her spot as she sank down to the ground.  She couldn’t bear to chase after the girl she loved anymore.  Only her last words echoed in Eri’s head.

**  **  ** 

   Risa walked out of her apartment and closed the door.  She was holding a container of kimchi in her hands now.  She smiled as she thought of how happy her turtle friend would be, grinning that goofy grin… She could be so pure sometimes, that Eri, being happy at the smallest things.

   The bean started to head up the stairs but someone turned the corner and bumped into her.  Risa clutched onto the kimchi container, making sure not to drop it.  Luckily, nobody fell but only faltered in their steps.

   “Ah, sumimasen—” the bean started to say, before she cut off her own words.

   The person she bumped into was the girl that she had seen before, walking up the stairs.  But this time, there was a clear trail of tears on her cheeks.  Without a word, the petit girl continued to run down the stairs.

   What’s up with her? Risa thought, cocking her head.  She seemed perfectly fine before… Does she even live in this building?  Suddenly, the bean’s eyes widened as a different thought came to her.  Wait a minute… long dyed hair, petit figure, cat-like eyes… could it be…?

   Risa sprinted up the stairs to the sixth floor, trying to get to her friend’s home as fast as possible.

   If that really was the Reina girl… she thought, I have a bad feeling about this…

   Eri’s door was still unlocked.  Risa burst into the apartment and spotted her friend kneeling about five feet in front of her.  Her face was buried in her hands.

   “Eri!” the bean yelled.  She quickly put the kimchi down and dashed to her friend’s side.  “What happened?  Why are you crying?  Oi, tell me what’s wrong!”

   “It’s over…” Eri said hoarsely, looking up to reveal her face soaked in tears.  “Risa-chan, she knows… Reina knows now… and I lost her…”

   I hate it when my gut feeling is right, the bean thought, biting her lips.  “It’s okay, Eri, it’s okay, calm down.”

   “What do I do now, Risa?” the turtle cried, hiccupping.  “I… I love her… so much… but she hates me now!  What do I do?”

   Realizing her words weren’t going to help, the bean instead took her friend into a hug.  Eri cried into her shoulders, letting her tears drop uncontrollably.  Risa could only sigh and stroke the turtle’s back, murmuring random phrases in false effort of comforting her.

   I should’ve pushed her harder… I should’ve helped her more… she thought, feeling her chest tighten.  What can I do for Eri now?  What can anybody do…?

Ch.24

I love that Reina has friends who can barge into her home at anytime. Makes me wonder how they get in time after time. Delinquents.

And the last line? Dum dum dummm. Foreshadowing at it's best!

Ch.25

Of course, you would feel the need to do the big reveal and the resulting aftermath on the most wonderful time of the year. :lol:

Un-coolly excited Reina is adorable, I bet no one else gets to see that. The anticipation builds.

The big reveal, and what happens? Reina absently notes in her shock that Eri's body may be better than hers.  XD

While you may have managed to upset everyone, all I'm fixated on is Eri in a black bra.


Good update. Reparations better come soon.

At least Reina got to see for it herself and got to learn the truth the hard way. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Junjun & Co don't pay Eri a visit and make things even miserable for her. Or perhaps, Reina will turn up in time and rescue Eri, making her realise she still cares for Eri. Hmm.
(Getting a little concerned for Eri....considering what we have seen of Junjun's gang so far ^^; )


This TanaKame mess better be sorted soon!! Or I won't be able to enjoy the TakaGaki relationship.....though that one seems to be heading towards a less than cheerful route for now, too.

A the classic, lover walks in on you and gets upset at what you have done and leaves before you can explain angle, nice....  :panic:

perhpas this wasn't as disaterous as it may seems at first, I mean at least Reina now knowssomething that Eri did not seem imminetly about to do in my opinon, at least noe Eri can see if she can win Reina round as a girl, this time with no lies...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 26

   Risa let out a deep sigh as she leaned back against the tree.  Her lunchbox was lying right next to her on the grass, but she didn’t open it.  She hated eating alone, and she wasn’t feeling that hungry anyway.  All she could think about was one person: Eri.

   How could this have happened?  What were the chances that the Reina girl was going to come up to the turtle’s apartment in the exact moment while the bean was gone?  If Risa had been there, could it have made a difference?  Maybe she could’ve somehow stalled Reina long enough to give the turtle time to change into some boy clothes.  Everything would have been okay then: Eri wouldn’t have cried, Reina wouldn’t have run away, and Risa wouldn’t be feeling guilty.  And at this moment, Eri wouldn’t be in the nurse’s office taking a nap and resting.  She had been spacing out for the whole day in school, so the bean had managed to convince her to go to the nurse to rest.  The turtle had nodded with a blank face, causing Risa to wonder whether her friend had actually heard her or not.

   So what could she do now?  She wanted to make amends somehow and help her turtle friend who was in absolute denial.  The girl wasn’t putting her cell phone down for even a second; she kept on texting away, probably begging Reina to give her a chance to explain.  But what was there to explain?  This wasn’t even a misunderstanding that could be cleared up; everything Reina saw was the truth and the whole truth.  Eri was a girl and she had been hiding it all along.  She had lied to her girlfriend, and that hurt both of the in the end.

   Could Risa go and talk to Reina?  The girl wasn’t going to listen to her “boyfriend” anymore but she didn’t have anything against the bean.  Heck, she probably doesn’t even know who the bean is.  So maybe Risa could explain the situation to her and help to solve the problem…  But what could she even say?  If Eri can’t come up with a excuse, Risa probably couldn’t either.  The bean groaned, frustrated that she couldn’t do anything anymore; no one could.

   Suddenly, something cold touched Risa’s cheeks; the bean gasped and whipped around to see her history teacher standing next to her.  She was looking down at her with a smile, holding a can of soda out.

   “For you,” she said, offering the drink.  “Go on, take it.”

   “Sensei!” Risa yelled, feeling her cheeks heat up a little.  “Um, what are you doing here?”

   “Well, I was looking for Kamei-san but I saw you sitting here wasting your lunch period away,” Ai grinned.  “I guessed you weren’t hungry so I decided to get you a drink instead.  Are you going to take it or not?”

   “Arigatou gozaimasu,” the bean answered quietly, accepting the soda with both hands.  She stared at the label of it, not daring to look up.  She was afraid that her face might be too red; after all, she had accepted recently that she indeed has a crush on her teacher.

   “May I sit?” Takahashi-sensei asked. 

   Risa nodded silently.  Ai sank down to the grass, sitting close to her student.  She smoothed her skirt a little and looked up with a small smile.

   “So, what’s your dilemma today?” she questioned.

   “I don’t have a dilemma,” Risa denied.

   “Oh, come on, Gaki-san,” the teacher said, rolling her eyes.  “I know there’s something on your mind; you looked like you were in deep thought before.  Is it about Kamei-san?”

   “… Okay, fine,” the bean sighed.  “Yeah, it’s about Kameha.  I’m kind of worried about her.”

   “Why don’t you tell me what happened?” Ai suggested.  “I was going to ask Kamei-san about it myself but you can tell me too.  She seemed very unfocused in class today; I was going to call her out but the situation seemed a little more serious this time.”

   “Yeah, it is,” Risa said, smiling sadly.  She looked up to face her teacher with sincere eyes.  “Thanks for keeping quiet, Sensei.”

   “You’re very welcome,” Ai said, smiling warmly.  “Tell me, now, what happened?”

   “Well… it’s not my story to tell,” Risa hesitated, biting her bottom lip.  “But basically, Eri got into a fight with… um… a friend… You see, she unintentionally kind of told a lie… and that friend found out and got really mad.  So Eri is really upset now.”

   “And you’re concerned,” Ai said softly.

   “It’s not just that,” the bean said, shaking her head.  “Yeah, I’m worried about Kameha.  But it’s just that… it’s a little complicated to explain but basically, I could’ve prevented it from happening.  See, I was there… I could’ve stopped the whole revelation from happening but I couldn’t.  And now, both Eri and the friend is hurt.”

   “… You’re a good person, Gaki-san,” the older woman said quietly.

   “Again with the good person-bad person thing?” Risa yelled, feeling a little angry at how simplistic her teacher was being.  “Enough with that analogy of yours, Sensei!  I keep on telling you I’m not a perfectly good person and you’re not a bad person either!  So just stop with all that!”

   “I’m not saying ‘good’ in that way, Gaki-san,” Ai chuckled, amused by how her class representative was losing her cool.  “I’m saying that you’re a very good friend, very pure and warm-hearted.”

   “No I’m not,” Risa muttered under her breath, crossing her arms like a stubborn child.

   “You’re feeling guilty right now because you feel like you could’ve helped Kamei-san, but you didn’t,” Ai explained, her smile unchanged.  “You see, I think that kind of guilt can be seen as a good characteristic, in a way.  You’re feeling that weight on your shoulders right now because that’s how much you care about Kamei-san.  You want her to be happy so you feel regretful about not being able to protect her.  That’s why I’m saying you’re a good person, Gaki-san.”

   “I’d be an even better person if I could somehow fix this,” Risa mumbled sadly.

   “In the end, this is still Kamei-san’s problem,” the teacher continued.  “She needs to be able to work things out with her friend herself.  All you need to do during that time is to stand by her and be there for her whenever she needs a shoulder to lean on, like a friend should.”

   “… I guess you’re right,” the bean sighed, looking up at her teacher with apologetic eyes.  “Sorry for getting mad at you, Sensei.”

   “You don’t need to apologize, I should’ve worded it better,” Ai smiled.  “I think… I’m starting to believe there are more than just good and bad people out there.  Your words are actually kind of taking toll on me.”

   “I’m glad,” the bean grinned.  “And don’t go thinking you’re a bad person or whatever again!  That’s offensive to me and all the students who respect you.”

   “I understand,” the teacher answered, laughing.  Her smiling face was so beautiful in the sunlight; Risa couldn’t stop staring with awe-stricken eyes.  This teacher had spent her free period trying to cheer her up; she really cared that much.  And she had said that she was being affected by the bean as well!  Risa smiled, feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.  She loved her; it was so easy to accept it now.  She loved Takahashi-sensei for who she was.

   Suddenly, a small gust of wind sent the leaves flying up.  The two women covered their faces with their arms.  When the breeze died down, Risa opened her eyes to look at her teacher again.

   “Wait, Gaki-san, there’s something in your hair,” the teacher said, reaching out to her student.

   She removed the leaf from Risa’s head, grazing her bangs in the process.  The student blushed furiously at the small contact as her heart started to beat faster.  Ai noticed the color-change in her cheeks and started to worry.

   “Gaki-san, are you feeling okay?” she asked. 

   “I-I’m fine!” Risa answered stiffly.

   “You’re face looks awfully red right now,” she said.  “Maybe you should go to the nurse’s office…” 

   She reached out and cupped the bean’s cheek, stroke her smooth skin with her thumb.  Risa stayed frozen as her eyes fixated on Ai’s concerned face.  The warmth of the teacher’s hands overtook all other senses; she couldn’t see, hear, or feel anything else anymore. 

   Sensei’s hands moved upwards to swish her bangs to the side, trying to check if she had a fever or not.  At that moment, Risa blinked furiously and finally broke away from her own little trance.  She jumped to her feet, grabbed her bento box, and clutched it to her chest.

   “I-uh… I need to go!” she yelled, staring at her feet so as not to reveal her red face.d

   “Are you sure you’re okay?” Ai inquired.  “I really think you should go to the nurse—”

   “I’m perfectly fine, really!” the bean interrupted, talking quickly.  “Thank you for today!”

   Ai watched her student quickly bow and run away, swiftly entering the school building.  She smiled, thinking of how cute her uptight iinchou could be sometimes.  Then, her smile slowly disappeared as she looked down at her hand that had stroked Risa’s cheek.  The heat was still there and the sensation was still there.

   “You overdid it there, Ai,” she murmured softly to herself.  “You need better control than that.”

   She looked up again at the place where the bean had disappeared.  She knew that she shouldn’t push it any more.  Her hands had extended out unconsciously, and a little too eagerly, but she knew she had to stop now.  After all, she couldn’t have Risa liking her anymore than she already did.

And now, the story picks up :twisted:

Ah, it's gonna be fun writing here on out :lol:

First! :lol:

*Risa worries over Eri*
She must feel so helpless, but there really was nothing she could do. I mean, was she supposed to hold Eri's hand while she was out on her dates? Make her tell Reina the truth in person? Of course not. Not all she can do is be there and maybe talk to Reina, try to plead her case.

Quote
*Takahashi-Sensei to the rescue*
:lol: Ai. And taking Risa's outburst in stride.

Risa smiled, feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.  She loved her; it was so easy to accept it now.  She loved Takahashi-sensei for who she was.
:wub: Aww~

She reached out and cupped the bean’s cheek, stroke her smooth skin with her thumb.
That was quite intimate. :inlove:

I think it's probably, she doesn't need to be liking Gaki-san more than she already does. Except the she NEEDS to like Gaki-san more than she already does!

So what next? Jun and co dealing with a sullen Reina or Jun(and co) dealing with a sullen(but actually not) Sayu?

shouldn't she be staying away already?! making space between them.. instead she does the opposite?!.. not that
i'm complaining.. hahaha :lol: something's fishy.. but yey for RABU RABU!!  :onioncheer:

Poor Gaki thinking that she could of done something when infact there was really nothing she could do, this is really Eri's fault becuase she was happy not to tell Reina and Reina found out rather than Eri telling her, Gaki was the most insistant about it, but still, good people will worry about their friends though I doubt Gaki being over at Eri's would of made much of a difference...

Seems as though Ai is having problems trying to keep control of her feelings for Gaki, I wonder if she will be able to keep up her defences?

@Fushigidane: we'll see~~~  :D

@kano-chan: lol Gaki-san is all love but I wonder how Sensei feels...  :P

@convoy/M: aww, that is so sweet!! That really motivates me to know that I'm making someone's holidays and stuff.  thanks you~ :heart: :twothumbs

@kurosawa87: lol yeah, Ai's advice rules~ :D

@Haruka: lol that's okay.  I'm glad you're doing okay~ and I totally understand loving the job but having no other time. But it's worth it, isn't it? XD

@fallenxangel: OH NOES sensei hasn't done that to other students before..  that's just her trying to be too much of a responsible adult :D

@reikoshi: everything is pretty much serious at this point... I'll still try my best with the humor though :lol:

@oddball: Could Gaki have made a change? The world will never know. XD  But you're right, it really isn't her fault.  But that's just the bean feeling like a responsible/guilty/good/mature friend :D


I felt so much love from these comments~ I don't know what but I really did~ was it the language? perhaps :lol:
But anyway, thank you so much for reading!  I truly appreciate every comment you guys leave for me, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside  :wub:

so without further ado, next update! XD

Chapter 27

   “Where the hell is that girl?” Junjun fumed, stomping down the hallway.

   “Calm down, Jun-senpai,” Linlin comforted, flanking the taller panda’s left.  “I’m sure she’s around the school somewhere.”

   “Of course she’s somewhere in school,” Junjun scoffed, rolling her eyes.  “That girl hasn’t missed a day of school ever since she moved here.  Even when she was sick!”

   “Not like she ever gets really sick either,” Aika giggled, swinging her camera in her hand while flanking the yankii leader’s right.

   “You guys don’t get it!” the tall panda yelled, as though she was about to go into hysterics.  “It has never taken me this long to find her before!  I’m faster than this; I feel like a failure.”

   “Um, you’re getting a little too dramatic there, senpai,” Linlin laughed nervously.

   “I think you’re destroying your cool character’s reputation right now,” Aika smiled innocently.  “I mean, if my senses are correct, I believe we’re being stared at by everybody right now.”

   Junjun looked up and finally started to pay some attention to her environment.  She was clutching her head in the middle of the hallway during free period; a lot of students had been chatting or hanging out in the hall but now they were all silently staring at her.  They weren’t used to a nervous Junjun.

   “Oh…” the yankii leader said, dusting off her uniform and fixing her hair.  “Sorry for the sudden panic, everyone; I’m perfectly fine!”

   “Junjun, are you feeling okay?” one girl inquired with a concerned face.  “Maybe you should go to the nurse—”

   “No need, no need,” Junjun laughed heartily, shaking her head.  “I’m just a little more tired today…”

   “Jun-senpai is really losing it today, everyone,” Aika announced in a loud voice, smiling, “but for a good reason!  Does anybody know where Tanaka Reina-senpai is right now?”

   “Way to publicize my nervous breakdown, Mittsi,” Junjun grumbled, glaring at her kouhai.  “And I thought you were concerned about my reputation.”

   “Well, if I don’t do this, who knows what you might do in the near future?” Aika grinned.  “I believe I just backed you up like a good underling.”

   “I’m with Aika on this one, Jun-senpai, sorry,” Linlin smiled.

   “You’re always with Aika on everything,” the taller panda rolled her eyes.

   “Um, if you still want to know,” a tall girl interrupted cautiously, “I think I saw Tanaka-senpai walk towards the gymnasium.”

   “Why would she walk to the—” Junjun stopped as her eyes widened.  She looked at her two kouhais who also had the same shocked expression as her.  “I see… Thanks, Yurina-chan!”

   With that, the yankii leader started to briskly walk down the hallway with her underlings close by.  When they were away from the large crowd, Aika opened her mouth.

   “Why would Tanaka-senpai go to the gymnasium?” she asked.

   “She’s using the back door to get to the empty lot behind the school, duh,” Junjun answered.

   “I know that, I’m asking why she would go to the lot,” the younger member rephrased her question.  “That was a common spot for the school yankiis; we stopped using it a long time ago after Reina senpai left the gang.”

   “What reason would she have for going there then?” Linlin inquired.

   “Well, we used to trade drugs there,” Junjun replied.  “And we used to have rumbles too… We did everything the teachers shouldn’t know about at the lot.  But I doubt Reina is there to get drugged.”

   “So, what do we do?” Linlin asked.

   “You girls stay here and go to class when the bell rings,” the yankii leader ordered.  “I’ll go talk to Reina and see what’s up.”

   The two younger girls nodded as they slowly parted from the older panda.  Junjun continued to walk without turning back, making her way towards the gymnasium.  She turned a couple corners and noticed the crowd slowly thinning out.  After all, the gym was at the far end of the school so no student would take their time during free period to walk around in that area when they could just hang out near the courtyard or in the hallways.

   Junjun finally opened the double doors of the large gym and strutted across the empty room.  Her sneakers— which were against the school dress code, by the way, since all girls had to wear the uniform shoes— squeaked against the waxed wooden floor as she quickly made her way to the door at the far end.  She looked around a little bit before walking out through that door, meeting the bright sun outside.  She turned and came across a wired fence with the sign “DANGER: ELECTRICAL HAZARD”.  There were spiky barbed wires along the top edge.  Junjun took a couple steps back before taking an easy jog towards the fence; she quickly climbed up the wires and flipped over the fence while being careful not to touch the barbed wire.  Her gang had discovered long ago when Reina was still the leader that the fence was actually harmless; after all, what kind of prestigious private school would put such a dangerous fence on school grounds? 

   Junjun dusted off her uniform a little bit before walking around the final corner of the school building, reaching the back lot.  She grinned as she spotted the exact person she had been looking for.

   “You’re late,” Reina mumbled, smushing something on the sandy ground with her hand.

   “Who knew you would be here of all places?” Junjun sighed. 

   “Well, I was the one who found this place first,” the ex-yankii said in a low voice.

   “True that,” the panda agreed. 

   She walked closer to her previous leader and sank down next to her.  Reina was crouching, yankii-style, wearing sweatpants underneath her skirt.  Part of her hair was tied up into a partial ponytail on the side.  But the thing that shocked Junjun the most was the object that went in and out of Reina’s mouth, leaving gray smoke behind.

   “You’re wearing sweatpants,” the panda stated.  “That’s against the dress code.”

   “So is your entire appearance, Jun,” Reina retorted.

   “You tied your hair.  You always keep it down and straight.”

   “I used to tie it all the time.”

   “Yeah, back when you were still part of the gang.”

   “Whatever.”

   “… And you’re smoking.”

   “Am I not allowed to smoke?”

   “You usually don’t smoke unless I offer first,” Junjun explained, starting to get annoyed with Reina’s dull attitude.  She pointed to the dried up scraps of cigarettes on the ground.  “But you already finished five by yourself.  What’s going on with you, Reina?  Aika and Linlin are worried too.”

   “Where are they, anyway?” the kitten questioned.  “Aren’t they always with you?”

   “I told them to stay back so I can talk to you in private,” the yankii leader replied.  “I thought you would want it that way, since this seems like a pretty serious situation.”

   “Always the mind reader, Junjun,” Reina laughed dryly.  She pressed the cigarette in her hand on the ground before throwing it away.  She sighed a couple times, exhaling leftover puffs of gray smoke.  “You’re right, something did happen.”

   “Go on.”

   “… I’ll be straightforward with this,” Reina said slowly and quietly.  “Eri is a girl.”

   “... Oh,” Junjun remarked, her widening for just a second before her expression returned to normal again.  “Huh.  Well, that wasn’t expected.”

   “Damn right, it wasn’t,” Reina growled, sinking completely down to the dirt and hugging her knees.  “You don’t seem that surprised.”

   “You know I’m hard to catch off-guard,” Junjun grinned.

   “I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing,” the shorter girl muttered.

   “Let’s get back to you,” the panda sighed.  “So Eri is a girl.  And you’re angry?”

   “Incredibly!” Reina yelled, finally releasing her emotions.  “She lied to me, Jun!  I thought I knew everything there was to know about Eri but that… person… hid one of the most important things from me!  Her existence means something different to me now!”

   Reina stared into her friend’s unwavering eyes for a couple more seconds before looking away, breathing heavily.  Junjun just calmly watched her previous leader catch her breath again.  She knew there was more.  There had to be.

   “But the truth is,” the kitten continued in a quieter tone, “I’m more confused than angry.  I mean, I thought I loved Eri, you know?  And now that Eri is a girl… I don’t know what to do.”

   “Does Eri being a girl really make that much difference to you?” Junjun asked.

   “No— Yes— No, I don’t know!” Reina yelled, her face showing her indecisiveness.  “I mean, I’ve never liked a girl before and I’ve never gone out with a girl before.  When Eri was a boy, I thought Eri was the one.  But now… I just… I don’t get anything.  Nothing is clear in my head.  Junjun, she just keeps on texting me and calling me, begging me to hear her out.  But I don’t know if I have the courage to do that.  I don’t know what’s going to come out of her mouth and whether I want to hear her or not.  I mean, what if I say something even crueler to her?  Is that going to make me feel better or worse?  I just don’t know anything, Jun!”

   Reina ducked her head into her knees after her rant, her hands tightening around her pants.  Junjun just gazed at her dejected friend, feeling pity yet somehow annoyed.  Yes, Reina was going through a hard time.  But how could she not realize, even after seeing her best friend with countless girls and seeing Aika and Linlin being all lovey-dovey with each other, that gender really does not matter in these cases?  It was so obvious that the kitten was going through this because she just couldn’t accept the fact that she loved Eri unconditionally. 

   Junjun sighed.  She gently patted the smaller girl on the head before standing up and stretching. 

   “Listen,” she started.  “I’m not going to tell you what to do, alright?  But I think you really need to have some quiet time.  Think things through carefully; you know what it is that you truly want.  All you need to do is organize your thoughts and look inside your heart.  That’s not something I can help with.”

   Reina stayed silent but she gave a curt nod in response to her friend’s advice.

   “Alright, then, I’m going to go back to class; the bell is going to ring soon,” the panda said.  “Are you coming?”

   “I think I’ll have my quiet time now,” the conflicted girl mumbled.

   “Suit yourself,” Junjun yawned.  “I’ll catch you later, okay?”

   With that, the taller girl walked back towards the fence and climbed over.  She entered the gym once more and walked towards the double doors that led to the main hall.  When she was halfway across the large room, she rolled her eyes and sighed.

   “I know you guys are there,” she called loudly.  “Open the door for me, will ya?”

   The double doors opened to reveal Junjun’s two underlings, grinning nervously while scratching their heads.  Junjun shook her head as she walked in between them.

   “Didn’t I tell you guys to go back to class?” she questioned.

   “You can’t blame us for being curious,” Aika replied.

   “Yeah, at least we didn’t listen in,” Linlin chimed in.

   “If you listened in, neither of you guys would be standing right now,” Junjun said coolly.

   “Just tell us what happened,” Aika sighed.  “Is Tanaka-senpai okay?”

   “I’ll fill you guys in later,” the leader said.  “But we have a job to do after school today.”

   “What are we doing?” Linlin asked.

   Junjun continued to walk down the nearly empty hallway, staring straight ahead.  Her usually friendly eyes were dark and cold.  There wasn’t the slightest hint of a smile on her lips.  She was dealing Reina’s feelings now; she knew she had to take cautious actions.  Part of her felt that she should leave the kitten to solve her own problems but maybe a small shove in the right direction would help her out a bit.  Maybe it would help both of the people involved in this situation.  Junjun opened her mouth to give her two curious kouhais an answer as to what their plans for after school were.

   “It’s time we pay a visit to a certain turtle,” she said.

(And at least Reina wasn't just angry, calling Eri a liar and a fraud and whatnot. She is confused!! :twisted: )

Oh geezz.. Jun loses her cool just for Sayu. :mon roll:

And Reina is revealing more of her yanki-ness! :shocked No smoking! So she's only confused.. She said two NOs. That's good, right? She just need to accept the fact that she loves Eri unconditionally. :roll:

The exciting part is coming! :cow: Jun and her underlings are going to give Eri a visit, but I doubt they would harm her. :mon noprob: Probably when Reina is around too!  :w00t: So Reina can show that she still cares for the turtle. :mon innocent:

And about the mistakes... I didn't notice any because I was so into the story. :twothumbs

“You guys don’t get it!” the tall panda yelled, as though she was about to go into hysterics.  “It has never taken me this long to find her before!  I’m faster than this; I feel like a failure.”
:lol: :lol: Jun freaking out is funny.

Quote
“Jun-senpai is really losing it today, everyone,” Aika announced in a loud voice, smiling, “but for a good reason!  Does anybody know where Tanaka Reina-senpai is right now?”
Wow, Aika. XD

Quote
“You’re late,” Reina mumbled, smushing something on the sandy ground with her hand.
She knew her friend would find her.

Reina was crouching, yankii-style, wearing sweatpants underneath her skirt.  Part of her hair was tied up into a partial ponytail on the side.  But the thing that shocked Junjun the most was the object that went in and out of Reina’s mouth, leaving gray smoke behind.

Chapter 22

Quote
But a strong part of the bean also hoped that her teacher would quickly realize her feelings.
Then tell her already  :D

Quote
Except this time, she was wearing her school uniform so her teacher had a very good view of her pink underwear.
OMG  :grin:

Quote
“What if it wasn’t me sitting in this chair?  What if it was some boy?  That would have been dangerous.”
Why am I thinking that it was still dangerous in a different way  :grin:

Quote
“And if I do this, you’ll get rid of the strike that I have, right?”
lol

Quote
“No!” the bean interrupted, smiling nervously.
XD

Quote
She unfolded it and read it again for about the tenth time that day, ever since she had confiscated it from her student.
:shocked :shocked  :w00t:  :cow:

Quote
It’s too late for you, and for the poor girl.  So what’s my next step…?
Who's the poor girl?  :huhuh


Chapter 23

Quote
The bunny had just fought a mob war near the cafeteria to get the specific type of bento that the older panda had wanted;
Lovely to imagine  :D

Quote
“I want you to feed me, Usa-chan,” she grinned.
Whoa!  :on lol:

Quote
For some reason, she couldn’t take her eyes of the yankii.  There was something about her…
And the spark begins  :mon fyeah:

Quote
“Take your clothes off,” the panda ordered.
:mon blood:

Quote
She slowly opened the curtain, expecting to see the yankii standing there, but there was no one.
Jun, you're the man, I mean woman

Quote
“Stop being a perv, Usa-chan.”
:rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

Quote
Sayumi carefully wiped the blood away from Junjun’s palm
Aww, she's becoming soft  :wub:

Quote
“Why not?  They’re cute…” Sayumi mumbled, her cheeks blushing bright red.  “Stop laughing!”

   “Ha-ha-ha!  Sorry, I just… Ha-ha!  Sorry, Usa-chan,” Junjun laughed, finally managing to sigh and calm down.  She grinned and spoke sincerely to the girl in front of her.  “Thank you.  I really appreciate this.”
Very lovely  :yep:

Quote
“we could do another challenge?”
Yeah, and another after that  :w00t:  that would be cool  :D

Quote
The bunny quickly ran out of the locker room, dashing as fast as she could towards her classroom.  Junjun, on the other hand, followed behind lazily
Was imagining Sayu running with all her might while Junjun was just walking fast but they were still side by side  XD  :P  :grin:


Chapter 24

Kameha and Gakiha convo's making me think ebil lol

Quote
But for some reason, the turtle just didn’t want to come out of her shell; she had held on to the head board of the bed until her knuckles turned white while Risa had tried to pull her out by her ankles.
XD

Quote
But every single time I try, she somehow manages to get me off-topic and we go on to about how nicely everything worked out for us.  I can’t break her happiness by telling her the truth after that
Poor turtle

Quote
“Yeah, he told me not to come but— hey, I don’t need to tell you guys any of this!”
The delinquents know how to stay on topic  XD

Quote
If she was addicted, this was the good kind of drug.
Happily in love  :luvluv2:


Chapter 25

Quote
Risa just decided to leave the door unlocked and walked down the stairs.
Hmmm, something's going to happen

Quote
Okay, here I go, Reina thought.  Ichi… Ni… San…… Shiiiiiii……  “Damn it, why is it taking so long?!”
Cute  XD

Quote
She finally reached the fifth floor to see a pretty girl with short brown hair coming down the steps.
Risa  :O

Quote
Feeling a little worried, Reina tried the door handle as she started to think about using the bobby pin in her pocket to pick the lock.
OMG!   :mon scare:  +  Cool Reina  :D

Quote
Who’s Risa-chan? Reina thought, raising her eyebrows.
Yay! She's jealous  :mon trannie:

Quote
“Um, I’m coming in, Eri.”
:mon scare:  :mon scare:  :mon scare:

Quote
“Wait, don’t come in, I’m still changing—”
:mon freeze:  :mon freeze:  :mon freeze:

Quote
The turtle was wearing a pair of sweatpants but her t-shirt was still around her neck, revealing her bare upper body clad in a black bra.  Her white skin, her slim waist, her two breasts… everything was visible.
:fainted:  :fainted:  :fainted:

Quote
“Don’t you dare touch me again!”
Ouches

Quote
I should’ve pushed her harder… I should’ve helped her more… she thought, feeling her chest tighten.  What can I do for Eri now?  What can anybody do…?
I'll cry with her  :gyaaah:


Chapter 26

Quote
This wasn’t even a misunderstanding that could be cleared up;
True

Quote
“For you,” she said, offering the drink.  “Go on, take it.”
:wriggly:  :wriggly:  :wriggly:

Quote
Are you going to take it or not?”
Funny sensei  XD

Quote
sitting close to her student.
Aww, very lovely  :luvluv1:  :luvluv1:  :luvluv1: Is she making her move?  :w00t:

Quote
“Again with the good person-bad person thing?” Risa yelled, feeling a little angry at how simplistic her teacher was being.  “Enough with that analogy of yours, Sensei!  I keep on telling you I’m not a perfectly good person and you’re not a bad person either!  So just stop with all that!”
Yay! Lovers quarrel lol

Quote
“Sorry for getting mad at you, Sensei.”

   “You don’t need to apologize, I should’ve worded it better,” Ai smiled.
Aww, kiss and make up  :grin:

Quote
“I’m glad,” the bean grinned.  “And don’t go thinking you’re a bad person or whatever again!  That’s offensive to me and all the students who respect you.”
:rockon:

Quote
“You’re face looks awfully red right now,”
XD

Quote
“Maybe you should go to the nurse’s office…” 
Sensei is playing  :roll:

Quote
She reached out and cupped the bean’s cheek, stroke her smooth skin with her thumb.  Risa stayed frozen as her eyes fixated on Ai’s concerned face.  The warmth of the teacher’s hands overtook all other senses; she couldn’t see, hear, or feel anything else anymore. 
Kiss her har har lol

Quote
“You need better control than that.”
Please, don't control yourself  XD


Chapter 27

Quote
“Way to publicize my nervous breakdown, Mittsi,”
:lol:

Quote
“That was a common spot for the school yankiis; we stopped using it a long time ago after Reina senpai left the gang.”
She's heart broken and so... she's back to her yankii old self?

Quote
“I know you guys are there,” she called loudly.  “Open the door for me, will ya?”
:lol: Ii nakama  :lol:

“It’s time we pay a visit to a certain turtle,” she said.

Once again, thanks so much for commenting!!!  :D

So here's a new years present XD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 28

   “Oi, Kame!  Wait up!” Risa yelled, running after her friend.  She grabbed Eri’s shoulder and spun her around.  “Chotto, didn’t you hear me?  I said wait!”

   “Huh?” the turtle mumbled, her eyes widening a little bit.  “Oh.  Gomen, Risa-chan… I must’ve been spacing out.”

   Risa rolled her eyes as she linked arms with her friend, as if to support her.  After Eri had come out of the nurse’s office, she had spaced out for the whole entire day.  The only time the light returned to her eyes was when she checked her cell phone; after realizing there was no reply, her pupils would turn to glass again as she slouched over in her chair.

   And now, for the first time since they became friends, Eri had left Risa in the classroom and walked out of the school right after the bell rang.  The bean had to run after the fast-walking turtle to catch up to her. 

   “Come on, Eri, pull yourself together,” Risa sighed.  “I know you’re upset but becoming lifeless doesn’t solve anything.  You’re seriously starting to worry me now.”

   Eri suddenly stopped her in tracks and abruptly turned to face the bean.  She smiled sadly.  “Gomene, Risa-chan.  I’m sorry for worrying you.  Nobody else needs to feel down about this but I guess my depression kind of rubbed off on you.  I’m sorry.”

   “That’s not what I want to hear,” Risa groaned.  “I don’t want you to be sorry about dragging me down with you, if that’s what you’re thinking.  I want to know how you feel, Kame, you’re my best friend.  I’m worried that you’re feeling bad, not me.  So don’t apologize for stupid things like that; I’m with you all the way.”

   “…You’re such a good friend, Risa-chan!” Eri suddenly yelled, making a puppy-dog face.  She jumped into the bean’s arms and gave her a good squeeze.  “I’m so glad you’re always beside me!  I don’t deserve a friend like you!”

   “Okay, okay, too much drama,” Risa laughed, patting the turtle’s back.  Well, at least that cheered her up a little…  “You’re starting to choke me now, Kame.  Let go.”

   Eri took a step back and gave a small smile.  The two friends linked arms again once more and walked towards the school exit together.  There were a lot of other students in the front field, heading toward the gates.  But there were three students waiting by the exit, not wearing a school uniform.  They were drawing a lot of attention to themselves, but they didn’t seem to care so much. 

   The tall black-haired girl was leaning on the brick wall, twirling a chain of keys that was connected to her belt; she was wearing a large black sweater with baggy jeans and sneakers.  The girl with short wavy hair was crouching, wearing layers of camisoles with jean shorts and long boots.  The third girl was standing the most casually, wearing a plaid miniskirt with a tank-top and a hoodie; she was the only one smiling pleasantly at the students of Haro Kotogakko, trying to be polite.  The crouching girl was keeping her glare on the ground as though her looks would kill someone if she lifted her head.  The tallest girl was expressionless.

   Eri spotted them first and faltered in her steps a little.  Risa looked at her friend and followed her gaze to the three girls standing by the gate.  She gasped softly and fear swept over her; who were those girls?  Eri seemed to know them… Could they be Reina’s friends?  Whoever they were, Risa didn’t like the vibe she was getting from them.

   Eri composed her face and continued to walk towards the three girls, dragging the bean along.  The truth was that she was feeling a little scared too; Reina’s friends had been nice before when they first met but that was back when Eri was still a boy.  Things were different now.  But the turtle knew she couldn’t avoid them forever.  They were here to speak with her and she knew it.  Besides, she even felt like she deserved whatever treatment she was about to get.  She had hurt Reina, and that was an ultimate sin to her.

     The girl in the skirt was the first to spot the turtle and the bean, linked to each other.  She smiled brightly and waved.  The girl on the ground noticed what her lover was doing and stood up, glaring at Eri.  Junjun dropped the chain of keys she was twirling and faced the approaching students.  She grinned.

   “Oshisashiburi, Eri-kun,” she greeted.  “Or should I say Eri-chan now?”

   “Good to see you again too, Junjun-san,” the turtle said quietly.  “And Mitsui-san and Linlin-san.”

   The younger panda gave an energetic wave with a quick greeting while Aika just continued to glare. 

   “Well, let’s get straight to the point,” the yankii leader said.  “We need to talk.”

   “I know,” Eri answered.  “Can we do this behind the school?  I’d prefer it if we didn’t do this in public.”

   “Good, I feel the same way,” Junjun smiled.  She motioned to her underlings to walk behind her as she turned to go to the chosen location.  Linlin took Aika’s hand to get her to stop staring at Eri and start walking instead. 

   Eri started to follow behind but Risa tugged on her arm, reluctant to let her go; the bean felt like she was letting her friend walk right into the lion’s den.  None of these girls seemed like they were in a happy mood except for the one wearing the skirt; her happiness actually seemed out of place at the moment. 

   “Go home, Risa-chan,” Eri whispered.  “I’ll be fine.”  She actually didn’t know if she was going to be fine or not.  But hey, as long as they didn’t break her leg, she’d be able to walk home somehow.

   “No, either you’re coming with me or I’m coming with you,” Risa said determinedly.  “But I prefer you coming with me.”

   “I choose neither,” the turtle replied.  “Look, this is my problem.  I’m happy you want to stay with me but this is something I have to face alone.  Please trust me on this?”

   “… You better come home on time,” the bean muttered, staring straight into the turtle’s eyes as if to hypnotize her.  “I’m going to come up with dinner later so you better be there to answer the door.”

   “I will,” Eri smiled.

   After a couple more seconds of staring and silently reassuring, the two friends finally let go of each other.  The turtle turned and quickly ran after her visitors. 

   They reached the back of the school in no time, where litter was scattered in the corner with shards of broken glass and ripped pieces of paper.  Eri stood a couple feet away from the three delinquents; Junjun seemed to be silently observing her while Aika, who was standing in between the pandas, was just glaring again.  Linlin had a slightly nervous face, her eyes flitting from her girlfriend to her leader to the turtle.  For a gang member, she seemed to be the one who wanted peace the most.

   “It’s kind of odd to see you in a girl’s school uniform,” Junjun chuckled, stroking her chin.  “I guess you really are a girl… and a cute one too.”  She winked.

   “… Well that’s something I’ve never heard before,” Eri said, blinking. 

   “Really?  Because I do think you’re pretty cute dressed like that,” the yankii said, examining the turtle again.  “Your friend from before was cute too.”

   “This isn’t what you came to say, right?” Eri sighed, changing the subject.  “Can we just get it over with?”

   “… You know, I’m kind of surprised that you just voluntarily followed us here,” Junjun remarked.  “Weren’t you scared?”

   “A little,” the turtle admitted.  “Why, did you expect me to run?”

   “Actually, no,” the panda laughed.  “You didn’t seem like that kind of type.”

   “And I’m not,” Eri sighed.  “I’m not going anywhere until you’re done.  Just… do whatever makes you happy.  Hit me, cut me, I don’t care anymore so go ahead. ”

   “Hey, wait a minute,” Junjun started, “we’re not here to—”

   “Gladly!” Aika interrupted.  She suddenly flipped up her girlfriend’s skirt and snatched away one of the knives secured around Linlin’s thigh with a leather band.  Then, she dashed forward while switching the knife open in the process and swung the weapon at Eri’s neck.  The turtle gasped as she shut her eyes tightly.

   “Aika!” Junjun shouted angrily, stopping her kouhai’s action.  “Step away from Eri, now.”

   “She offered!” Aika yelled, still glaring at the turtle with pure hatred.  “She said I can hit her or cut her or do whatever I want—”

   “I said, stand back NOW,” Junjun ordered firmly. 

   Aika held the knife against Eri’s throat for a couple more seconds.  The turtle could feel the cold metal of the blade touching her skin, but felt no pain.  At least not yet.

   “Aika!” Linlin pleaded, opening her mouth for the first time.

   “… Damn it,” the attacker muttered, pulling away her weapon.  She whipped around and walked back to her gang members where Junjun was holding her hand out.  Aika placed the closed switch blade on her leader’s hand and walked around to stand next to her girlfriend. 

   “Don’t do stupid things,” Junjun sighed, closing the knife.  “You had no real intention of hurting her anyway.”

   “Did too,” Aika muttered, not wanting to seem weak.

   “Yeah you totally wanted to kill her,” Junjun smirked.  “That’s why you were holding the knife the wrong way.”

   Eri now understood why she could feel the blade on her throat but no blood or pain.  Aika had held the knife so that the smooth side was touching the turtle’s skin while sharp edge was facing out.

   “It was an accident,” Aika argued.

   “You don’t make amateur mistakes,” Junjun grinned.  She tossed the weapon back to its original owner.  “Keep your knives to yourself, Linlin, will you?”

   “I didn’t know she was going to take it from me like that,” the younger panda mumbled.

   “Well then, make sure you keep your girlfriend from reaching up your skirt again,” Junjun snapped.  Linlin looked down, mumbling an obedient answer.  Aika slipped her hand into her girlfriend’s hand, whispering a quiet apology under her breath.  Only then, Linlin smiled and looked up at her lover, reassuring her. 

   So now, Eri knew three more things about this gang.  One, Aika could be scary… really scary, and very fast.  Two, Linlin kept knives under her skirt; Eri wasn’t sure if she wanted to see her use them because being the owner of the weapons, chances were that she was even more skilled at using them than her girlfriend.  And three, Junjun was stronger than both of them combined; that was how she could keep even a frightening little monster like Aika in check. 

   “Well, that was something I hadn’t planned for,” the yankii leader sighed, scratching her head.  “Sorry about that, Eri-chan.  But really, we’re not here to hurt you.”

   “You’re not?” the turtle asked.

   “Not at all,” Junjun smiled.  “I just had a couple things to relay to you.  Is that okay?”

   “Um… sure,” Eri answered hesitantly.  So the gang wasn’t here to beat her up for what she did to Reina.  What could they need to say to her?

   “I’ll be straightforward with you,” Junjun said, taking a step forward.  “I’m here as Reina’s friend but I’m not on anybody’s side or something like that.  I’m not saying this for your benefit or for mine or for whoever’s.  All I care about is Reina’s wellbeing and her happiness.”

   “It’s the same for me too,” Eri said quietly.  “I… I really didn’t mean to hurt her like that.  I tried to tell her earlier but…”

   “You don’t need to tell me what happened, it’s too late anyway,” Junjun sighed.  “I just wanted to tell you something; Reina isn’t angry at you.”

   “She’s not?” Eri said loudly, her eyes widening. 

   “No, it’s more like she’s confused,” the panda smiled sadly.  “You have to understand, Reina has gone out with other guys before but she’s never been with a girl and has never thought about being with a girl.  She doesn’t quite admit it but I think it’s safe to say that she still has feelings for you.”

   “She… she does?” Eri croaked, choking on her breath. 

   “She just finds it hard to accept that she might actually like you for who you are rather than your gender,” Junjun said straightforwardly, rolling her eyes.  “I find it kind of stupid but of course, I didn’t say that to her face.  Anyway, my point is that it’s not over for you yet.”

   “… What do you think I should do?” Eri asked.  “Is there a way I can talk to her?”

   “I wouldn’t suggest that,” the panda said, shaking her head.  “Her natural instinct would tell her to shut you out.  I think you should actually do the opposite: don’t call her or text her anymore.  Don’t contact her in anyway and don’t beg her for anything.  Give her some space and some time to think.  I think that’ll do the trick.  That’s the only chance you have now.”

   “… Will that really do it?” Eri whispered.

   “I don’t know if it’ll help you,” Junjun admitted.  “But giving her some alone time will help her organize her thoughts and truly think about what she wants.  Her choice might not be in your favor but she’ll be happier.  Isn’t that what you want?”

   “… Yes,” the turtle answered, decidedly.  Even if she and Reina wouldn’t be together, all she wanted was for Reina to be happy.  She didn’t deserve to feel the horrible pain that Eri gave her…

   “Then it’s settled,” the yankii leader sighed.  “That’s really all I wanted to say.  I don’t know how long it’ll take but it’s better to just stay away for a little while, okay?”

   “Or stay away forever,” Aika muttered under her breath, causing Linlin to squeeze her hand.

   “And I’ll keep that girl away from you too, so don’t worry,” Junjun laughed. 

   But Eri didn’t smile.  She could only stare at the ground with blank eyes.  Would giving Reina space really help her?  If it does, will Eri be okay with the choice the kitten makes?  What if Reina decides to completely throw her away? Will she be able to stand it?

   Junjun sighed and smiled a little, reading the turtle’s mind.  She walked over to the worried girl and patted her on the shoulder, causing her to look up.

   “Hey, I know you’re scared,” the panda murmured softly.  “And I know you may find me hard to believe… but you just have to trust me on this.  It’s going to do Reina some good.  And if things go way off course, I’ll be there to set it back in track, alright?”

   “… Why are you helping me so much?” Eri questioned.

   “I’m not helping you,” Junjun grinned.  “I’m helping Reina.  I’ve never seen her happier than when she was with you; I think you’re doing plenty of good for her.  So I’m kind of trusting you on this too.  See how that works out?”

   “Um, I guess…”

   “Great!” the yankii replied.  “We’ll catch you next time, Eri-chan!” She snapped her fingers to signal to her underlings.  Aika and Linlin immediately flanked her sides.

   “Arigatou, Junjun-san!” Eri called.

   “Call me Junjun!” the yankii leader yelled, lifting up her hand without looking back.

   “And call me Linlin too!” the younger panda yelled, looking back and waving.  “And you can call her Aika!”

   “Don’t you dare call me anything!” the third girl growled, glaring back.

   The three yankiis soon disappeared around the corner, leaving Eri alone in the empty lot.  So it seemed that Junjun could be quite smart and serious, despite her joking manner.  She really seemed concerned about Reina’s future.  Aika definitely held the most contempt for the turtle; after all, Eri had hurt her most respected senpai.  She probably just wanted to cut off ties with Eri entirely.  Linlin was actually the most mysterious of all; either she was stupid or she just didn’t care.  But considering how the rest of the gang was, Eri deduced that Linlin probably had a different reason for not hating her so much.  Maybe that was just how she always is; smiling and friendly. 

   Eri was determined now.  She would do her best to make Reina happy again.  And if giving her space was going to help her reach that goal, then she would do it.  Maybe this was even a better punishment than begging.  After all, doing nothing seemed harder than chasing after the girl.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope that answered a couple questions.  I feel like I elaborated a bit more on the gang XD

I want to thank you all for your support during 2010!!!  I first started writing this summer and it has been a very memorable year for me on JPH!P, thanks to all of you!  :kneelbow: :farofflook: :kneelbow: :farofflook: :kneelbow: :farofflook: :kneelbow:

Jun was just there to give her fair warning although Aika seemed to be fast on attacking although using the smooth side really caught Eri off guard

Happy New Year

So now I understand why Jun wanted Lin and Aika there with her while she talked to Eri. I knew they wouldn't hurt her, no really :sweatdrop: if Eri was hurt, it would hurt Reina. I think Jun was trying to let the girls know that Eri was off limits in that way. Though maybe she didn't have to. Aika wouldn't have hurt her, holding the knife the wrong way showed that much. I'm glad that Jun confronted Eri like that, who knows what she would have done without that little bit of reassurance?

So what's next in the new year? GakiKame talku? Or SayuJun? :P

Jun gives out good advices too! And Lin doesn't actually have a dark side, right? :sweatdrop:

Yes! So Eri finally knows what she needs to do! :w00t: That is to do nothing. :O Well, then that means Reina will be the one coming to Eri first! :inlove:

Happy New Years, Everyone! :mon firecrack:

“Gladly!” Aika interrupted.  She suddenly flipped up her girlfriend’s skirt and snatched away one of the knives secured around Linlin’s thigh with a leather band.

“Well then, make sure you keep your girlfriend from reaching up your skirt again,” Junjun snapped.

Ah just as I thought, Jun and Co. wanted to just give Eri a pep talk so that Reina can have some time to herself and thatEri dosn't give up on her, well at least Jun did anyway, it seems that Aika is a little more angry at Eri than the others I suppose because Eri hut Reina, I suppose Jun knows that Eri kinda hurt Reina too but I think that Jun had a better understanding of what Eri's predicament is, perhaps once,she liked Reina as well?

@yukirei: yeah, cuz Aika is smart enough to know that killing Eri wouldn't do any good at the moment :lol:

@Shiawase_Honoo: yeh yeh~ I gave Aika a bit more a character.. she just loves Reina too much :P

@oddball: yeah, Jun definitely knows how to keep a straight head about situation... it's rare for her to lose it completely :D

Confused Reina is cute. Just give her time, she'll come round :inlove:

I like how Jun is like in this story. She genuinely cares for Reina as a friend, and isn't quite so hot-headed to be out for Eri's blood without trying to understand ^^; Aika is cute in her own way, how she absolutely adores and worships Reina :lol:
Now that the gang gave some encouragement to Eri, I guess we just have to sit back and wait for the kitten to end her confusion and run back into Eri's arms :wub:


And......Happy 2011 SarangAi!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the two awesome stories from 2010 (one carrying over into 2011 XD), keep it up.
(As long as you don't stray into KameShige or GakiKame pairings you'll always remain as one of my favourite writers :P)

God, Aika really scared me, She's not innocent at all, poor Eri  XD
Well I love the way Jun is worried about Reina, so cute, I
 just hope her advice can work. Giving to Reina her own space, looks the best to do.
Gambatte Eri-chan ><

Mittsi all "in yo' face" was adorable. I think i would've giggled and then gotten my head cut clean off. i'm actually kinda disappointed that Eri didn't get roughed up, but that's just me.  :lol:

story moving along nicely. :thumbsup

I am SO SORRY for the intense lack of updates.  I've just been so busy and completely occupied with the sudden return of studying...  :bleed eyes:

Just to let you guys know I'm still alive, I got a REALLY REALLY short chapter :nervous

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 29

   “So… that’s it?” Risa asked, raising an eyebrow.  “You’re just going to give up like that?  It’s over?”

   “No, who said I was giving up?” Eri contradicted, gently punching the cushion on her lap.  “I only said that I was going to stop trying to get in touch with her.  I’m not going to visibly hang on to her anymore.  Do you know what I mean?”

   “Yeah…” the bean mumbled, blinking a couple times.  She was slightly confused; her friend had been so desperate on contacting her girlfriend (well, maybe not girlfriend anymore) and now, she was just going to sit back and wait?  Just what exactly had Reina’s friends told her?  The turtle had even appeared right back her apartment without a scratch.  At least that meant that things weren’t too bad… right?

   Eri shifted her legs as she placed the cushion in front of her; she hugged her legs close to her chest and placed her chin on her knees.  The two friends were sitting on the turtle’s couch, having a heart-to-heart chat that had almost become a daily ritual.

   “It’s a long story,” Eri sighed.  “But Junjun basically just said that Reina is more confused than angry, and that I should give her time to figure it out for herself.  I’m not helping her by clinging on to her.”

   “I guess that’s true too…” Risa said.  “Well, I hope everything turns out okay in the end.”

   “Me too…” Eri mumbled, biting her lips.  Finally, she took a deep breath and exhaled before smiling at her friend.  “So, what’s going on at your end?  Did you eat with Sensei again today?”

   “She brought me a can of soda,” the bean confessed shyly, pulling the cushion that Eri had previously let go to her chest.  “And we talked about you a little.”

   Eri frowned.  “What did you say?”

   “I just said you were having problems with a friend,” Risa said, trying to sound nonchalant.  She didn’t want to come off as a blabbermouth; after all, Eri didn’t know how hard it was for the bean to keep her mouth shut when her teacher was being so soft and kind…

   “Fair enough,” the turtle sighed.  “Anything else?  Come on, give me some details!”

   “I… She, well… just comforted me a bit…” Risa mumbled, blushing.  “And, uh, she was concerned for you and me… And… well…”  She started to remember Ai’s presence, her hands stroking her cheek, her breathing so clear in her ears, her scent…

   “Risa, your face is redder than an apple right now,” Eri smirked, breaking her friend out of her trance.

   “Is not!” the bean yelled, clamping her face between her hands. 

   “You obviously like her!” Eri laughed.  “It’s not just respect or anything; you really like Takahashi-sensei, as a person!”

   “… Yeah, I do!” Risa shouted, confessing.  “Is there something wrong with that?  I love her, okay? Happy?”

   “Yeah, kind of,” Eri giggled.  “I think you’re in a confessing mood today.  Tell me more, while you’re at it.”

   Risa wanted to straight-out reject that idea but Eri was actually right; her own feelings were just so overwhelming whenever she thought of the teacher that she felt as though she just had to spill everything out.  Besides, this was Eri, her best friend.  She told her everything anyway.

   “I… I’m starting to fall in love with her more and more every single day,” the bean whispered, getting embarrassed.  “Sometimes, I feel like I just want to tell her…”

   “Then you should!” Eri exclaimed.  “Seize the chance, Risa-chan!”

   “I can’t!” the bean yelled back.  “I’m just another student to her.  She’s my teacher and she’s six years older than me.  It’s not… it’s not possible.”

   “If you think it’s impossible, than it really is impossible!” Eri scolded.  “So don’t think that way!  You have to believe in yourself and trust your feelings for her.  Besides, as far as I can tell, Sensei doesn’t see you as just a student either.”

   “… Really?” Risa asked, her eyes widening.  Sensei… sees me differently?

   “Yeah,” Eri smiled.  “Remember that day when we all ate lunch together?  She looks at you with different eyes than when she looks at me.  I’m telling you, Risa-chan, this is a chance!  Confess your feelings and let her know.  And don’t let anything get in the way!  Isn’t that what you want?”

   … Kameha is right, Risa thought. I don’t care if she’s my teacher or if she’s six years older than me… I’ve never felt this way towards another person before; if I let these emotions go, I know I’ll regret it later.

   Determinedly, Risa dropped the cushion and straightened her back.  “I’ll do it,” she proclaimed.  “I’ll find a chance and confess to her.  I… I don’t know what will happen but there’s only one way to find out.”

   “That’s my Gaki-san!” Eri grinned.  “Let’s do our best together, nee?”

   “I pray for you, you pray for me,” Risa chuckled.  I’ll tell her.  I’ll tell her that I love her and that I want to be with her.  Because there is no one else I’d rather think about.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Told you it was short :sweatdrop:

I promise the next chapter will be WAY longer.  It'll be a ShigeJun chapter  :D

Again, sorry for the lack of updates!  I'll try to get the next chapter out as fast as I can!  :)

Kame helps Risa by convincing that maybe she should tell Ai that she has fallen in love with her :) Go For it!

I was so happy to see an update, that I literally yelled out loud. I was just thinking I should start bumping the thread to make sure you were still there. XD

Quote
She didn’t want to come off as a blabbermouth
Risa, blabbermouth? *Le gasp* No~ Anyone but her. :lol:

Quote
“I’ll do it,” she proclaimed.  “I’ll find a chance and confess to her.
Oh man! I can so imagine a billion different scenarios. How long are you planning to make this story?

Hmm, if you want it to be shorter, you could skip Ai rejecting Risa and focus on them trying to hide their relationship. If it's going to be a bit longer, Risa might get turned down, but then Ai will eventually realize she can't be apart and THEN you could focus on them trying to hide their relationship.

But then again, Risa could confess, be rejected and then keep pushing and declaring her love until Ai finally quits being stubborn and accepts.

Or Risa could confess, be rejected, start missing school, doing badly in class and otherwise being heartbroken until Ai finally quits being stubborn and accepts.

Or Risa could confess and be rejected because Ai really DOESN'T have those feelings for her.

Or maybe, Risa could..... um, I think I should stop before my head explodes. :sweatdrop:

Someone was being a jerk, but I got happier when I noticed you updated! :twothumbs

Finally, she decides to confess! :w00t: Now that Kame mentioned, that actually supports the idea that Ai-chan sees Risa differently than other students. :inlove:

I'll be looking forward to ShigeJun! :cow:

good luck with school.

From the way Aichan keeps alluding to how she was a "bad person", her reaction to reading that note and scolding herself for becoming too involved, regardless of what her true feelings are I feel a heartbreak around the corner for Risa, even if it's just for now. Part of it could be Aichan feeling she shouldn't get involved with a student as a teacher, but I feel whatever happened in her past is also stopping her from admitting to her growing feelings. Now it would be really interesting if Reina somehow knew Aichan or had some kind of connection to Aichan's past or something :lol: XD (just a random thought)

At least Jun's talk with Eri seems to of calmend her down a bit, she seems to be alot more relaxed about the whole situation now, I suppose Jun will have to face Reina about this at some point aswell?

   “She brought me a can of soda,” the bean confessed shyly, pulling the cushion that Eri had previously let go to her chest.

There's just something very sweet and innocent in the way that Gaki is admitting to Eri that someone bought her a soda, almost as if it was a confession of love  :wub:

It seems as though Gaki has manged to accept that she has feelings for Ai but I have a nasty suspicition that Ai will break Gaki's heart because Ai will be all noble about her past and will not let Gaki get involved in it......

@kurosawa87: cheer for her! XD

@rndmnwierd: lol i was THIS close to needing the bump because I was starting to forget where I left the story...  :nervous but i'm back on track now! :D and those are some good predictions... hmmm  8)

@kano-chan: yay! glad to make your day a little better :lol:

@gracula: lol i AM quite evil, huh?  :twisted:

@aussie: good analysis! you're on the right track :D

@oddball: lol I'm glad i was able to get the right mood across :P and i'm glad you felt that way! XD

@mmsuki: LOLOL except sayu was a little less willing back then...  XD :lol:

@eruchan: NEW PERSON :otomerika: :yossi:  :cow: lol glad you like the story! XD

@Fushigidane: I wonder too....  :nervous :lol:


I'm so glad that such a short chapter was able to dig up so many comments... thank you! :D

I'm trying to write the next chapter right now, but it's definitely taking a while.  I'm trying to shorten it a bit so I'll still have fingers after I'm done but we'll see :lol:

Just to answer rndie a bit more: I honestly don't know how long this story will be but it's not going to be as long as Kokoro no Uta.  I plan to make it detailed as possible and try to follow my original plot line but not overdo it as much.  And I also do plan to have another poll for my next story when Chigatte mo Iin da Yo! nears its end. :D

You know, I think the next poll, you should leave out Takagaki and Tanakame, since you've already done two stories with them as a focus. You know we'll just keep choosing them if you don't. :lol:

EDIT: If we're gonna start voting now :roll: I might as well ship some Tanagaki. I would absolutely love to see you tackle that one. *sighs dreamily*

Well, I'm finally up to date with this fic. FINALLY.  :heart:

Even if you think you're not updating that quickly, believe me, sarangai, you're doing a great job with updating!  :twothumbs
Hope you don't get swamped with stuff though, since your chapters are relatively short anyway and I prefer to have a longer read with each update :nervous

A LOT has happened in this story since I last commented... and I won't go through things chapter by chapter 'coz I'll never get this comment done if that were the case. Besides, you have such great readers who show their support, so I don't necessarily feel too bad if I don't comment all that much.  XD Since overseas holidays are over though, I'll make an effort to respond to every chapter you throw our way.  :thumbsup

The story is moving along very well; I always have to admire your ability to keep up the pace, to always keep things moving. I really enjoy the dialogue you have between and amongst your characters too, and (biased as always), I LOOOOVE the TakaGaki.  :wub: :wub: :wub:

I'll give my thoughts on the pairings...


TanaKame:
I was kind of on the fence with them as I'd mentioned last time; they were definitely not as exciting to me as TakaGaki or JunSayu, but I'm starting to appreciate them a lot more!  :love:
ESPECIALLY after Reina found out. Gosh, poor Eri when that happened...  :fainted:

But I could definitely understand the feelings of both parties; Eri - fearful, uncertain. She'd told a lie and allowed it to grow and fester... and now has to face the consequences. I wonder what kind of reaction Reina would have had if Eri had actually confessed herself and not let the kitten find out the hard way >___<

And fair enough reaction from Reina too. She was feeling almost betrayed in a way... now, frustrated, confused. I'm sure deep down though, it's okay... because she loves Eri on a level that will allow her open-minded self to see beyond everything, to accept the turtle. I honestly believe that; Reina's just kind of in denial right now, and needs advice and guidance and a push in the right direction. Which is why I really love Jun in this story.  :wub:


TakaGaki:

My FAVOURITE, as always.  :wriggly:
I just don't think I can ever dislike these two, whoever they are and whatever they do. As long as they're together, it just feels RIGHT. Though of course, the fact that we're looking at a teacher-student relationship here is rather... troubling.  XD

Eri's part in this was great too. Like when they were having lunch together and Eri tried to steal all of Ai's attention to make Risa jealous and push her to do something  :lol:
Sooooo adorable.  :nya:

The chapter where Risa went out with here Takahashi-sensei to shop for things; I loved this chapter!   :wub:
Having to sleep over with her sensei and everything; the getting cut and having your teacher suck on your finger weirded me out just a tad (I kept thinking, perv Takahashi!), but the rest of the chapter was uber cute and I was cheering them every step of the way. <333

It was also funny to see the conflicted internal monolgues that Risa had, trying to deny her feelings... to the now readily able to confess bean. With Ai's rather somber past, I'm not sure what exactly will happen; I have a feeling Ai will not easily accept Risa, even if the older girl feels for the bean (which I'm guessing is the case xD - even Eri thinks so!). I'm excited to see where this relationship is headed. Deep down I know it's wrong, but we're talking TAKAGAKI here. I'm going to forget societal standards and all that crap, just for them!  :P


JunSayu:

These two are probably the most interesting characters. I have to say, I'm in love with this kind of Jun.  :luvluv1: She's very attractive; similar to the way a bad boy who is really a softie on the inside is. She's casually cool, but feisty and aggressive if she has to be, somebody who commands a lot of obedience with just her presence. Yep, very attractive  :yep:

Not to mention, how playful she is with Sayu.  XD

The deal they had and the challenge they took on - what was Sayu thinking, really? But I guess she just really wanted Jun off her back.

And of course, Jun had to go to her rescue when those girls tried to bother her...  :inlove:

I'm sure Sayu will open up to Jun in time, and Jun will see her as more than just a play thing. ^___________^
I'm really looking forward to find out what'll happen between these two as well.

Okay... that should be it for now. Good luck with writing. And oh - I agree, don't put TakaGaki or TanaKame in the next poll of yours. I'm so voting KameShige again, though looking at how that turned out last time... >_____<

Looks like it might be ReinAi, or GakiKame....  :(

Thanks for your consistent updates, SarangAi! I've enjoyed them all a lot!
Waiting patiently for the next update~!  :heart:

SO! Here I am finally registering on JPH!P even though I almost only read to your stories but it's worth it :lol: I have been following your threads since day 1.. yeah since Kokoro no uta's first chapter and have stayed hidden all this time, that's just how shy I am really :nervous

Now I have only one thingto say. SarangAi... really... I LOVE YOUR STORIES!! I check your thread every morning in case there's an update yet lol

@taylortot: NEW PERSON  :otomerika: :yossi: :cow:  I'm glad you like the story! I took a risk with the gender bender thing but I'm glad the reaction is good  XD

@rndmnwierd: I'm thinking of the same thing actually.  Those two are my favorite couples but I want to try something different too  :D

@aussie: show the love XD

@gab98: yeah yeah yeah, where were you??? well, at least you're here now, thanks for the comment! XD

@kano-chan: I don't know much about the MM before Aichan's leadership so it's really hard for me to write about the OGs...  :nervous  But hey, if you're fancying ShigeJun enough because of this fic (not sure if you are though), maybe you might find yourself liking other pairings too?  :D

@Beecubed: Girl, your comment is LONG ENOUGH and I love reading it.  Glad you're liking the fic so far!  And hey, without TakaGaki and TanaKame, you never know what might happen with the poll...  :lol:

@Tchips: NEW PERSON  :otomerika: :yossi: :cow: It took months but I guess you finally came out of the shadows, huh?  Well i'm really glad tha tyou love my stories!  Thank you~~  XD


I guess talks about polls make people de-lurk more?  :twothumbs

I'm definitely thinking about excluding the TakaGaki and TanaKame pairing for the next poll.  As much as I love writing about them, I think I want to challenge myself to something new  :)

I don't know when this fic is gonna end but if you guys wanna start voting, I have a different poll to present to you, as shown:
which genre should I write about next? I have a lot of ideas floating around but I don't know which one to grab so I want you guys to choose!  You can only vote for one, so choose wisely!  :D

I personally like the idea of fantasy but I don't know what you guys like so... VOTE  :lol:

Okay, so here's the long chapter that I promised!  XD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 30

   “Don’t tell me you don’t even know janken,” Junjun groaned, rolling her eyes.  “Come on, you can’t be that rich.”

   “Don’t be stupid, I know what janken is,” Sayumi scoffed.  “It’s just that… it’s a bit simple to make it our next challenge, isn’t it?”

   “Well, it seemed like the last game was a little too difficult for you, so I went with something easier so you actually have a chance,” Junjun smirked, eliciting small giggles from Aika. 

   Sayumi scowled deeply, clenching her teeth.  This yankii was making fun of her again!  Part of her wanted to argue for a more complex challenge, just for the sake of her pride, but she knew deep inside that she would have no chance against Junjun in a physical game, even something as simple as running.  The bunny knew her limits.

   Besides, Sayumi had no intention of embarrassing herself in front of so many people, even if they were all her enemies as far as she knew.  She and Junjun were in an empty lot, almost a junkyard, and it was already about nine o’clock.  Unlike the last challenge, the yankii leader had brought the bunny to her gang’s headquarters this time, where the rest of her underlings were hanging out.  Other than the usual two underclassmen that was flanking the tall panda, there were about five other girls now, standing around and watching.  There was one short-haired girl wearing overalls with lots of necklaces and high heels; a taller girl with longer curly hair was standing by her side.  A couple feet away from them stood another pair of girls, one with a black ponytail and the other with long blond hair.  They were smiling and whispering something in each other’s ears.  There was a shorter girl, not far from them, with longer black hair.  She seemed to be the only one without a “partner” but she still seemed perfectly comfortable.  They all had a very confident aura, radiating from them like gleaming diamonds.  Sayumi guessed she should have figured that they would all be similar characters to Junjun to be in her gang.

   “The rules are simple,” Linlin announced.  “Best two out of three wins.  If Shige-san is victorious, Jun-senpai and all of us will leave her alone forever.  But if Jun-senpai wins, then Shige-san will do whatever she is asked to do for the rest of the night.”

   “Wait, rest of the night?” Sayumi asked, raising an eyebrow.  “I thought it would be for the whole day tomorrow.”

   “You want to be my servant for a longer period of time, and at school, in front of everybody?” Junjun smirked.  “That’s fine with me.”

   “No!  Tonight is fine,” the bunny said quickly.  “I won’t be your servant this time anyway.”

   “I’m glad you’re staying optimistic, Usa-chan,” the panda grinned.  “Okay, let’s get started.  All my girls are watching both of us.  There is absolutely no way to cheat in this game.  You ready?”

   Sayumi nodded.  The two black-haired girls walked up to each other, under the single streetlamp.  Before, it was too dark to see clearly but the bunny could see the yankii better now.  Her hair was the usual long-straight style with cornroses on one side.  She was wearing a simple hoodie with sweatpants and sneakers.  Sayumi definitely felt out of place, as she was surrounded by a bunch of delinquent girls wearing dark clothes and fancy jewelry.  She was wearing a pink knit shirt with a white miniskirt and beige-colored boots.  Her entire being was completely mismatched with the location and the atmosphere.

   The two challengers put their fist out and let their knuckles touch.  Junjun smiled with confidence and winked at the cute bunny in front of her.  Sayumi ignored her.

   “Here we go!” Aika exclaimed, standing right in front of where the two fists met with her girlfriend right beside her.  The other yankii girls closed in on the game field, cheering on their leader.  “Ready?  Set…”

   “Saishobu!” the two black-haired girls yelled.  “Jankenpyon!”

   The surrounding girls cheered as they examined their leader’s paper against the bunny’s rock.  Sayumi pouted but she calmed herself down.  She still had more chances.

   “Continue!” Aika exclaimed, allowing the two challengers to put their fists together again.  “Ready… and!”

   “Saishobu!  Jankenpyon!”

   “Yatta!”

   A wave of groans sounded as Junjun just smiled and put down her scissor as Sayumi held her rock high. 

   “I guess this is it, then, Usa-chan,” the tall panda said.  “This final round will determine all.”

   “I definitely won’t lose!” Sayumi yelled, holding out her fist.

   “Ready?” Aika said.  “Set…”

   “Saishobu! Jankenpyon!”

   “Jun-senpai sugoii!”

   A roar of laughs and cheers arose from the girls as they skipped and clapped their hands.  Sayumi bit down on her bottom lip as she glared at the ground.  She knew she should’ve put out a paper.

   “I guess I win again, Usa-chan,” Junjun grinned.  She walked towards the bunny and put her arm around Sayumi’s shoulder.  “So tonight, you’ll have to do whatever I say.”

   “You… you better not be thinking of…” Sayumi mumbled, starting to blush.

   “Thinking of… what?”

   “You know… that… I’m not going to do that with you!”

   “Usa-chan, I can’t believe you were thinking such dirty thoughts!” Junjun gasped sarcastically as her underlings giggled.  “You know, I thought you were better than that.”

   Sayumi felt her cheeks burning up.  This girl was playing with her again!  She knew she shouldn’t have been so nice back in the locker room.

   “We just want you to hang out with us tonight, Shige-san,” Aika explained, smiling.  “We occasionally all go out and do something fun together.”

   “I think we’re going to a karaoke bar tonight,” Linlin said.

   “What?” Sayumi shrilled, her face turning a little pale.  “Um, no… I-I can’t sing.”

   “You don’t have to sing if you don’t want to, all you have to do is just be there with us,” the short-haired girl wearing overalls said, stepping out.  “I’m Shimizu Saki, by the way.  Nice to meet you, Shige-san.”

(http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/SarangAi/captain.jpg)

   “And I’m her girlfriend, Yajima Maimi,” the taller girl with long black hair chimed in, putting her arms around Saki and pecking her cheek.  “Yoroshiku!”

(http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/SarangAi/maimi-1.jpg)

   “Ah… um… hai…” Sayumi mumbled, looking at her own feet again.  She was never good at meeting new people.  Everybody who knew her was aware of how antisocial she was.

   “My turn!” the pretty girl with a black ponytail exclaimed, jumping up.  “I’m Suzuki Airi. And this is my girlfriend Natsuyaki Miyabi.”

   “Yoroshiku~” the blond girl greeted, smiling.

(http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/SarangAi/miyaxairi.png)

   “I’m Okai Chisato,” the last girl said in a husky voice.  “I’m the youngest, single, and loving it!”

(http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/SarangAi/chisato.jpg)

   “Liar,” Airi scoffed.  “We all know you still like Maimai, we all know.”

   “No, I’m definitely over her this time,” Chisato said determinedly.  “She’s just so… you know!  We always end up fighting because she’s so… yeah.”

   “I totally understand,” Airi said sarcastically rolling her eyes.

   “She was cute, though,” Miyabi said.  “You’re going to regret it later.”

   “Nah, not this time,” Chisato grinned.

   “That’s what you said last time,” Maimi smirked.  “I mean, if you don’t want her, than you don’t mind if I—”

   “Shut up, you,” Saki interrupted, slapping the tall girl’s arm, frowning.  “I don’t care even if it’s just a joke, don’t say things like that when I’m right here.”

   “Ouch, that hurts,” Maimi grinned.

   “It was your fault that time, Maimi-chan,” Aika smiled.  “You know how Saki gets.”

   “What do you mean how I get?” Saki yelled.  “What are you—”

   “Okay, stop!” Junjun ordered, bringing silence to the group immediately.  “If we stay here any longer, we’ll never get to the karaoke bar.  Now let’s leave.”

   All the other girls quickly agreed and started to leave the lot.  Junjun walked over to the frozen Sayu and took her hand.  For some reason, the bunny couldn’t find the strength to break free.  It wasn’t such an unpleasant feeling anyway. 

   “Stay close to me,” the panda whispered in her ear.  “They’re all good kids, but you have to watch out for Maimi, especially.”

   “Why?” Sayumi whispered back.  “She seems to be the most like you.”

   “That’s why I’m saying you gotta watch out,” Junjun grinned.

   The group of girls eventually reached the noisy streets of Tokyo lit by streetlamps and store lights.  Airi and Miyabi were in the front, holding hands and chatting with each other.  Sayumi thought that they looked pretty cute together.  Aika, Linlin, and Chisato were right behind them, playing around with a camera.  Sayumi wondered what kind of relationship Chisato and this Maimai girl had, but they seemed to be going on and off by the looks of it.  Maimi was smiling and talking while Saki stayed silent and grumpy.  But she still kept her arm linked tightly with her tall girlfriend’s indicating to the bunny that they actually did really like each other. 

   In a couple minutes, the gang finally reached the karaoke bar.  Linlin and Aika talked to the lady at the counter, who led them into one of the biggest rooms.  There was a U-shaped sofa with a table in the middle with tambourines and set of microphones.  Junjun led Sayumi in first to sit in the middle.  Aika and Lin quickly took their seats next to Sayumi; they probably figured it was better for the bunny to sit next to someone she knew already.  Saki and Maimi slid into the seat next to Junjun while Airi and Miyabi slid in with them.  Chisato ordered some food from the counter lady before closing the door and taking her seat next to Linlin. 

   “So who’s first?” Junjun said.  “Let’s start off with something lively!”

   “I’ll go!” Airi volunteered, standing up.  She grabbed the song listings and quickly punched in the numbers with the remote control.  An energetic rock music started to flow out of the speakers as Airi grabbed one of the microphones.  Sayumi read the English title of the song.

   One Way Ikooru My Way? The bunny thought.  She had never heard this song before.  It was no surprise, really, since she rarely listened to music.

   As Airi started to sing, Linlin grabbed the tambourines and handed them to Aika and Chisato.  The atmosphere changed quickly as excitement and the energy level rose up in the room.  Saki’s smile returned as she listened to the music and flipped through the karaoke book.  Maimi cheered while paying equal attention to her lover.  The food arrived in the middle of the song so Chisato and Aika got up to get the food and drinks.  By the second chorus, Miyabi was also up and singing with Airi. 

   As Sayumi watched everybody enjoying themselves, she found herself pleasantly surprised.  All these girls were yankiis in a delinquent gang yet they were still having fun just like regular teenagers.  They all seemed pretty friendly too.  True, who knew what they could actually do behind the scenes.  She never knew Junjun could jump from the second floor and swing down by a tree and still be safe. 

   That triggered another memory from the bunny.  She quickly looked at the panda next to her, who was drinking some soda out of a glass.  When she put down the cup, Sayumi could see that the bunny band-aid that she had used earlier was still on Junjun’s hand.  It wasn’t such a strong band-aid; how did it even stay on for so long? 

   The first song ended with multiple cheers and applause.  The karaoke machine blared out a fanfare, presenting the score of 95.  Saki got up and claimed the microphone as the next song started to flow out.  She had picked a calmer, and a cuter song. 

   Kimi ga Iru Dake de? Sayumi thought.  She was even starting to feel pathetic about not knowing any of these songs.

   Aika and Linlin clapped with the tambourines to the rhythm.  Airi and Miyabi took a drink and had some of the French fries before turning their attention to the front again.  Junjun nodded along with a smile.  Maimi seemed completely mesmerized by the sight of her girlfriend singing.  Saki was only looking at one person as well.

   What an odd relationship… Sayumi thought.  It almost seems like a love-hate thing but I guess Saki understands Maimi’s character more than anyone to get over her anger as quickly as she can…

   The ballad song soon ended as Chisato jumped up from her seat.  A heavy rock song started to play out as Airi gasped.

   “That’s not fair, I was going to sing that next!” she yelled.  “And that’s my theme song!”

   “Just because you have the same name as the actual singer, doesn’t mean the song is yours,” Chisato shot back, sticking out her tongue.

   Airi pouted and leaned by into the sofa as Miyabi just laughed and tried to cheer her girlfriend up.  Sayumi read the title of the song again and found herself completely unknowledgeable once more.

   Aa! Koi… she thought.  There must be a hundred songs out there about koi yet I probably don’t know any of them.

   Chisato sang with energy and confidence, eliciting a lot of cheers and tambourine sounds.  Sayumi found that for such a tiny girl, she was actually a really good singer. 

   Next, Maimi jumped up from her seat and took the microphone.  A fast paced guitar sound started to play out as Maimi even started to take poses. 

   “Maimi is a very good dancer,” Junjun explained to the bunny, “and so is Saki.”

   Natsu DOKI Lipstick… Sayumi thought to herself.  I shouldn’t even expect to know a song anymore.

   Maimi danced charismatically as she sang alone.  It was quite amazing how she could still keep her voice nice and even while she was dancing so vigorously.  Her smoldering eyes were only staring at one person and that person was turning redder by the second.  Everybody in the room had to admit that Maimi was pretty hot.

   After the steamy performance, Aika and Linlin jumped up and went right into a cute and silly routine.  Junjun started to laugh, recognizing the song.  Linlin did a little bit of talking in the beginning before Aika started to sing.

   “Osaka Umainen?” Junjun giggled.  “Really?”

   “Come on, senpai, join us!” Aika yelled while Linlin was singing.  “It’s our theme, isn’t it?”

   Wordlessly, Junjun grabbed the microphone that was still left on the table and started to sing.  Sayumi thought that such a quirky song didn’t really suit Junjun so much.  But none of the other girls seemed to think so.  They didn’t seem very surprised when Junjun got up and started to do the silly routine with her two kouhais.

   “You seem shocked,” Saki yelled over the music.  “You probably thought that Jun-senpai wouldn’t do things like singing in front of everyone or something, huh?”

   Sayumi nodded wordlessly, still reluctant to speak to a person she just met.

   “Jun-senpai is really cool,” Chisato chimed in.  “And I mean that appearance-wise and personality-wise.  She’s a very charismatic leader and we all respect her.  But it’s easy to get close to her too.  She’s very honest about herself and she’s not afraid to have fun like this.  That’s what I like about her.”

   “Me too,” Maimi agreed.  “But she was a little frantic a couple days ago, wasn’t she?  She made Miya and Airi go with her to practically every single drug store for band-aids.”

   “It was terrible,” Airi joined in, realizing the conversation pertained to her. “She kept on saying it can’t be any type of band-aid and made us walk around everywhere.”

   “And in the end, she said she had no choice and just picked the little bunny ones,” Miyabi said.  “The regular ones were right there; it was kind of weird that she chose bunny ones.  That’s not like her.”

   As the girls quickly turned their attention back to the front, Sayumi thought to herself.  So Junjun had gone looking for bunny band-aids... which meant that the one on her hand right now was a new one that was the same brand…  Sayumi blushed a little.  What did this even mean?”

   “It was you, wasn’t it?” Saki whispered, causing the bunny to turn her head.  “You gave her that band-aid in the first place, right?”

   “… Un…” Sayumi answered.

   “… You’re special to her,” Saki whispered, smiling.  “I can tell.”

   Before Sayumi could ask the short-haired girl what she meant, the song ended and Aika and Linlin sat back down.

   “The next one is mine too,” Junjun said as the guitar instrumental sounded again.  She went right into the song as Sayumi started to slowly recognize it.

   Only You! She thought.  Mama used to listen to this song sometimes… I guess this is a remake?

   Suddenly, Junjun dashed forward and pulled Sayumi up, forcing her to stumble around the table and come up to the front.  Junjun handed a microphone to the bunny, who kept on shaking her head.

   “I can’t sing!” she yelled.

   Junjun just kept on singing without a care in the world.  Near the end of her solo, she turned to Sayumi and leaned in closer with a consistent gaze, singing “I want you… I want you…” until the bunny looked away and started to let out her voice instead.

   As the girl who had been silent started to sing, all the other yankii girls in the room started to cheer and dance along, little by little.  Something moved inside the bunny, some sensation that she had never felt before.  It was… excitement?  She had never felt so confident and energetic before.  As they reached the chorus, Junjun turned to her and pointed at her with a grin.

   “Only You!”

   A smile started to slowly spread across Sayumi’s lips.  She started to mimic Junjun’s actions, raising her arms up and down, pointing while singing.  Beads of sweat trickled down her back but she didn’t care; she was experiencing such an adrenaline rush, she wasn’t about to let go.

   Junjun started to sing a long solo to herself again as Sayumi danced and bobbed along.  She knew all the girls were watching her but surprisingly, she didn’t feel embarrassed.  She didn’t care if she looked good or bad; all she cared about was keeping this energy inside of her at a high level.  She didn’t care whether she sounded bad or not; Junjun didn’t seem to mind her voice one bit.

   “Futari wo tsutsun de, COME ON!”

   “Under the moonlight!”

   She could even do a call-and-respond!  She looked at everybody in the room who met eyes with her.  Maimi and Saki were busy making out in the darkness but she didn’t care.  She was having the time of her life.

   Junjun sang the chorus, staring right at her with a smile.  Sayumi wasn’t afraid to sing to her this time around either.

   “Only, only, only, only, only!”

   The song finally came to its close, eliciting multiple cheers and whistling.  Sayumi wiped the sweat off her forehead and laughed, still finding it hard to believe she actually did that.  Maimi and Saki were nowhere to be seen now but Aika and Linlin were shaking their tambourines like crazy.  Chisato was fist-pumping while Airi and Miyabi clapped and cheered.

   “Shige-san, that was amazing!” Miyabi commented. 

   “I didn’t know you could sing like that,” Aika exclaimed.

   “I think that side of you is better than the quiet side,” Linlin grinned.

   “She topped you on that one, Jun-senpai,” Chisato laughed.

   “Definitely agreed,” Airi giggled.

   “Gee, thanks guys,” Junjun said sarcastically, rolling her eyes, grinning.  “You guys can continue to sing.  I’m going to get some fresh air, okay?”

   As the panda left the room, Miyabi got up and grabbed the microphone.  Sayumi thought about sitting down for moment before deciding the latter.  She met eyes with Linlin for a second, who smiled and gave her a nod, before walking out of the room.

   Sayumi ran out to the front counter, looking around.

   “If you’re looking for your friend,” the worker said, “I saw her go up to the roof.”

   “Oh… um… thank you…” Sayumi mumbled. 

   She quickly found the stairway and skipped up the steps as quickly as she could.  She opened the door at the top floor.  The cool breeze hit her face and sent her back to dance in the gentle wind.  Ahead, she saw a tall black-haired girl turning around.  There was something in her hand that she raised to her mouth for a moment and dropped back down.  Gasping, Sayumi marched up to the yankii leader swiftly.

   “Are you smoking?” she asked, horrified.

   “Um… yeah?” Junjun answered, raising an eyebrow.  “It’s not a big deal, Usa-chan.”

   “Yes, it is!” the bunny yelled.  “Give me that!  OW!”

   Sayumi snatched the cigarette from the panda’s hand but immediately dropped it when her skin felt like it had been burned.  She had obviously grabbed it by the wrong end.  But she ignored her pain and quickly stepped on the cigarette to grind it on the concrete.

   “Hey, you have to be careful!” Junjun yelled, taking Sayumi’s hand and observing her fingers.  “You don’t seem that badly burned, thank goodness…”

   The panda started to blow on the bunny’s fingers gently.  The cool breath on her hand felt good as Sayumi blushed a little.  She was blushing a lot today, wasn’t she?

   “Th-thanks…” Sayumi mumbled, dropping her hands.

   “Your welcome,” Junjun smiled.  “But be careful next time, okay?”

   “No, not my finger,” Sayumi said, shaking her head.  “I’m saying… just thanks… for letting me hang out here today.”

   “… Wow, didn’t see that one coming,” Junjun laughed.  “So you enjoyed yourself?”

   “Unexpectedly, yes,” the bunny answered.  “I mean, all your friends were actually quite nice.  It was… fun.”

   Sayumi looked up and smiled a little.  The panda spaced out for a moment, as she was caught with her guard down from the bunny’s cute expression.  She blinked a couple times before snapping out of it and clearing her throat.

   “Well, I’m glad you had fun,” Junjun grinned.  She walked to the edge of the rails to look across into the city.  It was a pretty good view, since she was about three stories up.  Sayumi came over and also stood next to her.

   “But don’t you dare ever smoke again,” Sayumi scolded.  “It’s disgusting and really dangerous!”

   “You sound like my mom,” Junjun chuckled.  “She used to say the same thing all the time.”

   “Used to?” the bunny asked.

   “We don’t live together anymore,” the panda explained.  “She’s back home in Hunan.  I came over to Japan alone to attend high school here because I was able to get a scholarship.”

   “So… you live alone?”

   “Yeah.  But I rarely sleep at my own place, I’m usually at Aika’s or Linlin’s or Reina’s… oh, that’s another one of my friends, by the way.  She used to be the leader of the gang before I took over.”

   “What about the rest of your family?”

   “You’re really curious today, Usa-chan,” Junjun said, raising an eyebrow.  “Since when do you want to know so much about me?”

   “You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to.”

   “… I don’t have any other siblings,” the panda continued, cocking her head while giving a small smile.  “My father passed away when I was young by a car crash.  So you see, it’s a good thing I got a scholarship from the school that pays for my expenses or my mom would’ve had it hard.”

   “What a good daughter you are,” Sayumi commented.  She didn’t know Junjun could actually have this mature kind of side to her.  But seeing as she was a much respected leader, she must’ve had some good points.

   “Hardly,” the yankii laughed dryly.  “Even back in China, I always got into fights and still smoked.  I used to do worse things but I’ll spare you the details.  But I guess I changed a little when I came to Japan.  I got a little more easy-going.  But I still can’t stop the little things.  I don’t know, I guess since mom’s not watching, I just thought I could keep smoking.  Pretty unfair of me, huh?”

   “Very,” Sayumi agreed immediately.  “That’s really terrible of you.”

   “You know, your poison tongue is seriously going to hurt someone one day,” Junjun said, grinning. 

   “No, it won’t,” the bunny disagreed.  She gazed down at the rest of the city lights.  “No one listens to me anyway.  I never talk in school.  Mama and Papa are always busy so we rarely talk to each other.  All the maids just give me what I want and walk away.  No one cares enough to keep the conversation going.  So I don’t talk.”

   “No wonder you have no friends,” Junjun sighed.  “You’re so antisocial.  Whenever you open your mouth, only bad things come out.”

   “And you say I’m going to hurt someone,” Sayumi said, rolling her eyes.

   “Touché,” the yankii leader laughed.  “Well, you can say whatever you want to me.  I’ll be listening to you.”

   Sayumi turned to look at the girl next to her, who was smiling back at her.  Her expressions always seemed to taunt her before but now, it was gentle as ever.  The bunny couldn’t help but smile back a little.

   Then, Junjun’s expression changed.  Something inside of her was different… Sayumi was different.  There was such a difference from when she was frowning to when she was smiling…

   Unconsciously, the panda swooped forward and met the bunny’s lips with her own.  She gently moved against the soft skin, unable to stop her actions.  She wanted to kiss her.  She wanted to kiss her so much, she didn’t care much for the consequences.  But why…?

   After a couple seconds, Junjun slowly backed away and opened her eyes.  Sayumi’s eyes were wide in shock.  The bunny didn’t comprehend what she was feeling at the moment either.  Junjun had kissed her before but this time, it was different.  It was much slower, softer, sweeter…

   But unfortunately, her first reaction was to slap Junjun across her face.  The panda coughed a couple times from the shock and rubbed her cheek.

   “Ouch, that kind of hurt…” she mumbled.  Why didn’t she move?  She could’ve easily avoided that slap.

   I’m sorry!  I’m so sorry, are you okay? “You idiot!  That was… that was terrible of you!” Sayumi yelled, unable to say the words she truly wanted to say.  “How could you?  You’re a horrible person!”

   “Yeah, yeah, what’d you expect?  I am yankii,” Junjun sighed.  I’m sorry, I’m so sorry, that was completely rude of me.  I’m so sorry…

   “BAKA!” Sayumi screamed.  “Next time, I’ll definitely beat you!”  That must’ve hurt a lot; will an ice pack do the trick?

   With that, the bunny whipped around and stomped off the roof and down the stairs.  Junjun just watched the pale-skinned girl leave, unable to stop her.  She gently grazed her own lips with her fingertips, reminiscing the warmth.

   “You’re not being yourself right now, Junjun,” she murmured.  “Shikkari shite yo…”

So the Kids make an appearance as the other gang members, that's cool, i was wondering what you would do about that.

Quote
“Why?” Sayumi whispered back.  “She seems to be the most like you.”

   “That’s why I’m saying you gotta watch out,” Junjun grinned.
Jun knows what's going on! XD

I... don't think I know a lot of those songs either, though.  :sweatdrop: And, oddly, Only You makes me think about that one DDR song I liked. Ah, Captain Jack, you are missed.

And at the end, Jun steals another kiss! Yay! But, it appears as though, Sayu's not ready yet. I'm sure the day will come soon enough that she will be, though. Maybe after a few more failed challenges.

Tanakame, next? Will we just be seeing how Reina is doing, or will there be a bit of awkward resolution? Or will you skip them all together and hit Takagaki, then come around to Tanakame?

You know, maybe I should stop trying to guess the plot and just go along for the ride. :nervous

Soshite.....KISU! :mon kissy: Sayu didn't avoid it and she didn't mean to slap Jun either. :wub: Everything is going great with these two! :mon thumb: That was so cute and I want to see this couple even moree! :inlove: Oh, almost forgot...Is that IT for the whole night? :roll:

  “Wait, rest of the night?” Sayumi asked, raising an eyebrow.  “I thought it would be for the whole day tomorrow.”

   “You want to be my servant for a longer period of time, and at school, in front of everybody?” Junjun smirked.  “That’s fine with me.”

   “No!  Tonight is fine,” the bunny said quickly.

ahh.. nothing like subtle manipulation?!  XD

   I’m sorry!  I’m so sorry, are you okay? “You idiot!  That was… that was terrible of you!” Sayumi yelled, unable to say the words she truly wanted to say.  “How could you?  You’re a horrible person!”

   “Yeah, yeah, what’d you expect?  I am yankii,” Junjun sighed.  I’m sorry, I’m so sorry, that was completely rude of me.  I’m so sorry…

   “BAKA!” Sayumi screamed.  “Next time, I’ll definitely beat you!”  That must’ve hurt a lot; will an ice pack do the trick?

   With that, the bunny whipped around and stomped off the roof and down the stairs.  Junjun just watched the pale-skinned girl leave, unable to stop her.  She gently grazed her own lips with her fingertips, reminiscing the warmth.

   “You’re not being yourself right now, Junjun,” she murmured.  “Shikkari shite yo…”

This chapter made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside~ :mon inluv:

wow, you put in HP Kids... though it's kind of weird to picture captain and airi as yankii  :nervous
Captain/Maimi and MiyAiri? and ChisaMai... so everyone in the gang except jun got a girlfriend  :lol:

Sayu and Jun's relationship is getting interesting...
the kiss!  :sweatdrop: so, what's junjun going to do to repair the damage?
waiting for the next chapter

I suppose it's kind of typical Jun, to arrange for Sayu to go out to karoake with her gang ( :w00t:H!P kid's cameo!) it's the kind of kindness we have seen fom Jun so far in this fic.

Hmm, it seems as though Sayu and Jun may trully have feelings for each other but at the same time they are both afraid, Sayu for almost not believeing that somone could actually love her because of who she is and Jun for almost not wanting to be a Yankii when Sayu is around, I liked the idea of the allmost double conversation they had at the end where they said what there characters would usually say but wanted to say something totally different.

@kawaii beam: lol~ thanx kawaii-chan~~!!!  XD

@kurosawa87: yup, but you could say vice versa as well~  :lol:

@rndmnwierd: OMG you should definitely give the songs a listen.  they're REALLY good songs  XD lol Ima hit TakaGaki then come around to TanaKame XD

@kano-chan: oh you'll see this couple more~  XD

@mmsuki: lol oh yeah, there's next time...  :D

@XcuteX: aww~ glad to hear it!  :inlove:

@eruchan: jun got no girl cuz jun is a PLAYAH  :P

@oddball: oh you really got it down there. Jun wants to keep her cool character while Sayu is just being mean on the outside  :D

@fallenxangel: lol i like school life fics too, but i'm kinda scared since Chigatte mo is a school fic and i'm having a hard time with it... but if it's picked, i'll do my best!  XD

@gracula: lol the pictures make the story  :D

@Shiawase_Honoo: lol i hope you and your laptop made up...  :lol:

@Fushigidane: hey, whatever is the majority vote  :D


Thank you so much for all the comments!  I enjoyed reading every single bit of them  :twothumbs

As for now, it seems like School Life is in the lead with Fantasy close behind.  K-drama is falling behind a bit, which surprised me, since Kokoro no Uta was kinda like K-drama you know?  But Chigatte mo Iin da yo is like School life so...

I don't know what you guys like, you guys make your pick  XD XD

Very interesting chapter!~It seems that Junjun and Sayumi are developing feelings to each other, yet they don't know it. I'm excited to find out how it will end up being~
I lol'ed when I saw that you posted pictures of the other gang members (in a good way). For some reason, it's just really "you" to do that. :lol:

As for the poll, I gave my vote to Sci-Fi. I think, for a long time, people have imagined MM as either in the idol position or high schoolers.
Maybe introducing another style would totally change the way people look at them and even make the stories more unique
I read fanfictions of other groups (ie. kpop), and Sci-Fi works very well
It would be interesting reading those fanfics, because it holds a completely different tone
Plus, experimenting with different writing styles is something I try to do.
I have written (in other places) fanfictions of MM in a Sci-Fi style (TakaGaki)
Sometimes, it helps you as a "writer" too :)
However, don't be pressurized that it might not be good. Experimenting with different genres makes readers appreciate you more.

@sapphire: lol because I like visual stuff, so pictures/videos are always god :twothumbs  Yeah, I know what you mean.  I wanna try writing other genres too! :)


Okay, just a REALLY short chapter before bed.  It's more like a filler chapter.  You know, build the suspense :twisted:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 31

   The boy smiled as he continued to move his fingers rapidly over the keyboard.  The click-clacking of the cell phone wasn’t too loud, so he wasn’t worried about being caught texting, even if it was Takahashi-sensei.

   Yeah, she’s totally hot, the boy thought as he texted his friend in another classroom.  I don’t really care about history and all but I could seriously listen to this shit all day if I can stare at her bod

   Suddenly, something small whizzed by the boy’s head, grazing his cheek in the process.  The student looked up with a shocked expression, dropping his cell phone to the floor.  Everybody in the classroom was staring at him with surprised faces as well.  The history teacher at the front of the room was dusting her hands off.

   “Please refrain from texting during my class, Kukai-kun,” Takahashi-sensei said, smiling brightly.

   “S-s-sumimasen…” the boy stuttered, still not over the initial shock of having something thrown at his face.

   “Thank you,” the teacher said.  “Now please do me a favor and pick up that chalk behind you?  It’s a shame that it broke; it was my last piece.”

   “H-hai!”

   The student immediately stumbled out of his chair, tripping on air in the process, and grabbed the broken piece of chalk that was behind him.  He was sitting all the way in the back and the teacher had thrown this at him from meters away.  That was scary.  What if it had actually hit him instead of just grazing his face?

   “By the way, I wasn’t really going to hit you with the chalk,” Ai said, smiling.  “I just wanted to get your attention a little.”

   The boy laughed nervously, slightly frightened by how his teacher had just read his mind, or his face.  This teacher was gorgeous, but kind of creepy at times.  Just like how she seemed to know everything going on in the classroom and the way she failed half the class for the first term.

   The male student quickly walked over to the front of the classroom and presented the pieces of chalk to his teacher.  Ai took it and smiled.

   “Arigatou, Kukai-kun,” she said happily.

   “Uh.. no problem, Sensei…” the boy said slowly, his cheeks blushing.

   As the boy went back to take his seat, the rest of the students turned back to the board, sitting up straight just so they wouldn’t get in any unnecessary trouble.  Risa just shook her head while grinning.  Her peers were finally learning how scary Takahashi-sensei could really be, not to mention strict and merciless.  She turned to look at Eri, who had a very confused expression on.  Obviously, the turtle was still a little slow at understanding Ai’s character.

   After a couple more minutes of lecture, the bell finally rang to indicate the end of the period. 

   “Make sure to read tonight’s chapters,” Ai yelled as she gathered her things.  “Good work today, everyone.”

   “Kiritsu!” Risa called, as the entire class stood up.  “Rei!  Otsukaresama deshita!”**

   “Minna-san, otsukaresama!” Ai returned the thanks, before she walked out of the classroom.

   While the other students all sat back down, Risa started to run out of the room after her teacher.  Eri whispered some sort of chant to cheer her friend on as the bean turned around and gave a wink.

   Risa quickly walked down the hallway and caught up to her teacher.  Ai turned around at the sound of someone approaching and smiled.

   “Ah, Gaki-san!” the teacher said happily.  “Good work today.  I really liked the way you presented your answer today, very well done.”

   “Arigatou gozaimasu,” the bean said breathily.  “Sensei, I… uh… I have request.”

   “Yes?”

   “I’m sorry to ask you this at the last minute,” the student started, “but will you be able to meet me after school today by the courtyard tree where we always eat?  I have… uh… something to tell you.”

   “… Actually, I have a prior engagement,” Ai said quietly.  “I’m not sure if I can…”

   “You have to come!” Risa yelled with a sudden burst of energy.  “It’s very important, you have to listen!”

   The bean had no idea where she was getting this spontaneous courage from.  Normally, she would just said she understood and ask for another date, but she couldn’t help it.  Something told her today was the day to confess and she had to follow her gut feeling.  If she didn’t confess her feelings today, she knew she wouldn’t be able to do it in the future.  And then, she would regret never coming clean.

   “… I understand,” Ai finally said, smiling a little.  “I’ll stop by to meet you by the tree, right after school.  Will that be okay?”

   “That would be perfect,” Risa sighed.  “Thank you.”

   “You’re welcome,” Ai chuckled.  “Now you better return to class, the starting bell is going to ring soon.”

   “Okay!” Risa grinned, her happiness dying her cheeks soft pink.  She turned and quickly skittered back to the class room.  Ai watched her disappear through the door as her expression took a gradual change, from a smile to something else.  Was it anger?  Misery?  Worry?

   So there’s no way to avoid this, she thought, sighing.  Well, one heart is about to be broken… or two.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**NOTE: Risa says, "Stand up, bow, good work today".  The class representative does this after every class and does a greeting in the beginning too.  It's called ojigi  :)

excited? me too! :lol:

i hope i'm getting some of you worked up, i'm gonna start writing the next part tomorrow :D

But don't worry, I haven't forgotten about TanaKame.  In the end, i'm expanding more on them than the other couples.  they ARE main, after all XD

Also, for the poll, it seems like School-life is winning, which kinda surprised me since Chigatte mo Iin da yo is school-life and I did a better job in Kokoro no Uta.  But I guess everybody has differing opinions, nee~?

If School-life does end up winning, i'll have to think of some special plot so it doesn't get too similar to Chigatte mo :P

So she knows that she has to reject her, but she doesn't want to. I wonder if maybe Risa will not be able to accurately tell her at first, then kiss her with 'Actions speak louder than words' going through her head.

Hmm so Kame is going to play the reverse psychology game? She abruptly stops the desperate texting and Reina's left to wonder what happened and she'll start to miss her turtle...and... :lol:

As for Takagaki, all signs are pointing to Ai rejecting Risa's confession. Though it seems from the last sentence that Ai does actually return her feelings somewhat...well that's a start I say.

Reina is quite an interesting character here, all yankii but also has her otome-girl side when she's with Eri.  ;)
Usually people just write her as the baddass tough girl, or the evil!Reina but this fic has a nice twist to it.
This sort of cross-dressing-sort of gender-bending theme is unusual and that makes it all the more interesting! I don't think its been done before here.

And your other story Kokoro no Uta was such an enjoyable read too, I'm definitely going to be stalking your fic threads! lol  :P
Eagerly awaiting your tanakame update!

Get togeeeeether dammit XD That student-teacher thing going on there is  :inlove: Also cause I love me some TakaGaki lovin' haha! XD They're my favourite pair. I also liked "Kokoro no Uta".

@eruchan: yeah, poor boy... he got no chance...  :lol:

@kano-chan: lol don't worry, Eri is still #1 aho... I think :D

@taylortot (again): that is a KICKASS picture.   :twothumbs

@meowz: whoo~ you really got the reina character down for my fic.  That's exactly what i was going for.  she's evil in too many fics so i wanted to through in something different here XD

@kimino-me: NEW PERSON :otomerika: :yossi: :cow:  lol glad you like my fics!  You read Kokoro no Uta in one day??? that's impressive!  it's 101 chapters...  :shocked XD


yo yo yo~ back with another chapter~ :D
It's actually kind short but it should get a good idea across 8)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 32

   The bell rang loud and clear in the classroom, initiating a sudden burst of chatting and shuffling.  The last class of the day had finally ended, so the students of Haro Kotogakko were gathering their belongings to head home. 

   Eri quickly dumped her books into her bag and threw it over her back.  As she stood up from her seat, she realized that her cell phone was still on her desk.  She picked it up, opened it, and started to dial a number by habit.  But before she could press the “call” button, she stopped herself, remembering her new plan to stay away.  Suppressing her desires, the turtle sighed before putting her cell phone in her pocket.

   Risa gathered her things as well and grabbed her bag.  She turned to look at her friend who was looking back at her with a very determined face.

   “Risa-chan, ganbare!” Eri said, giving a very powerful gaze.

   “Un!” the bean replied, making a fist.  “I’ll do my best!”

   “I’ll be cheering for you!” the turtle said, also holding up a fist.

   “Yosh!” Risa sighed.  “Here I go!”

   With that, the bean skittered out of the classroom, through the hallways, and down the stairs.  She didn’t want to keep her teacher waiting in the courtyard too long; after all, she had said that there was another business she needed to attend to.

   At the speed she was going, Risa reached the familiar tree at the courtyard in no time.  It was peculiar to see the yard so empty, since school was now over and everybody was too busy leaving.  Under the large tree, the one person that the bean had wanted to see was waiting, checking her watch.  Her long wavy brown hair was pulled back partially with a clip; she was wearing a white blouse with a pink skirt that reached just below her knees.  There was a bag slung over her shoulder as she held onto it tightly.  The student took a deep breath.

   Okay, this is it! She thought.  The moment is finally here, Risa.  Don’t back down now, you can do this!

   While calming herself down, the bean slowly walked over to the tree to reveal herself to her teacher.  Ai turned around and smiled, spotting her best student.  The flash of her happy expression was enough to make the teenager’s heart skip a beat.

   “Gaki-san,” Takahashi-sensei greeted.  “I was waiting for you.”

   “Thank you for sparing your time for me,” Risa said, bowing her head.  “It really is important…”

   “I understand,” Ai chuckled.  “You’ve told me a lot of things already; I guess I don’t mind hearing a couple things more.  But are you sure I’m the right person to tell?”

   “Oh, I’m sure,” Risa sighed.  Who else would I confess my love to?  What is she even talking about?

   “I just don’t want you to tell me too many secrets,” Ai explained.  “I mean, I would think that normal students would go gossip with their friends instead of their teacher.”

   “Why, am I not to trust you?” Risa asked teasingly.  Oh, I see; she thinks I’m about to confide in her about teenage problems like I did with Eri’s issue.

   “Of course you can trust me,” the teacher grinned.  “If you’re okay with it, then I don’t mind listening.”

   “Okay, then,” Risa giggled softly.  Oh god, here I go…

   “So what were you going to tell me?” Ai inquired.

   “So… you see…” the younger girl started as she lowered her head, already feeling the heat rising in her cheeks, “I know I wasn’t so kind to you in the beginning of the year.  But I think I slowly learned to like you more and respect you in a way throughout the semester.  And, well, I still don’t know your secret and all but that doesn’t matter to me anymore.  I don’t want to dig into something you don’t want me to know.”  Stop babbling, Risa, you sound like an aho.  What are you, Kameha?  “Um, anyway, my point is, I think that we, uh, hit it off well with each other eventually…” ‘Hit it off’?  It’s official; I’m more of an aho than even Eri.  “Well, what I’m trying to say is… I think my feelings for you have grown past the extent of just respect.”

   “… What are you trying to say?”

   “What I mean to say is…” Risa hesitated, fumbling with the cluster of words in her mouth, “I think… I’ve fallen in love with you.  No, I know that I’m in love with you!  I really like you and I want to be with you, Sensei… and if you will accept my feelings—”

   “I can’t.”

   Risa looked up with wide eyes as she got a clear look at her teacher’s face.  Ai’s expression was hardened as she was gently biting down on her bottom lip.  She was avoiding eye contact with the bean but the aura she was giving off was enough to give Risa a hint.

   “… W-what…” the student mumbled, even though she had heard clearly the first time.

   “I can’t,” Ai said with determination once more.  “I can’t accept your feelings, Gaki-san.  I’m sorry.”

   “… Oh…” Risa mumbled again.  She took a deep breath and let out a small laugh.  “Well, I guess I knew this was the more likely result anyway.  It’s not that surprising.  But… um… can I still know why?”

   “… Gaki-san, you’re a very beautiful girl,” Ai started, stilling keep her gaze to the side.  “You’re smart and kind and pure and everything that I ever wanted to be.  Thanks to you, I think I’ve achieved maybe a quarter of what you are.  But I still don’t want someone like me to be with a girl like you.  You should find a more a suitable person your own age.”

   “… So this isn’t even about the fact that you’re a teacher and I’m a student?” the bean said slowly, an unknown emotion starting to engulf her.  “This isn’t even about the fact that I’m six years younger than you?”

   “Well, that too…”

   “So it’s not even about public morals?” Risa said, raising her tone.  “It’s about you being the bad one and me being the good one again?  I thought you let that idea go!”

   “I never said—”

   “But you meant it!” Risa interrupted, now yelling at the expressionless teacher.  “What are you always so afraid of?  Why are you so scared to… to… contaminate me or something?  Why do you always degrade yourself?”

   “Gaki-san—”

   “You know, one inevitable thing is the fact that I did fall in love with you.  That had nothing to do with your intentional actions, it’s all me being attracted to who you are.  If I’m as good as you say, and I want to be with you, that means there’s got to be some ‘good’ in you, right?”

   “Gaki-san, listen—”

   “I don’t want your stupid concepts of good and bad to be the thing that stops us from being together!  I don’t want my feelings trampled by your unreasonable guilt, Sensei, I love you!  And if you care about me enough, you would think this way, even just a little bit—”

   “But I don’t!” Ai yelled, cutting Risa’s rant half way.  She was now directly staring at the younger girl.  There was a certain intensity in her eyes; Risa wasn’t sure what it was but she knew it was there and it was piercing through her heart.

   “… what?”

   “I don’t care for you in that sense,” the teacher said straightforwardly, with the same hard expression.  “That’s my main reason for rejecting you.  I don’t have the same feelings towards you.  I see you as my student—a special student, but a still a student—nothing more, nothing less.”

   Risa stood frozen for a while as she processed what she had just heard.  So everything that she had thought and felt was all an illusion.  She was just entertaining herself in her own mind.  Sensei had never treated her in a special way because she saw her as a different girl.  She did so because she was just the oh-so-special class representative.

   “… I see…” the bean whispered, lowering her head a little again.  “That’s it, isn’t it?  You don’t feel the same way for me; it was just a one-sided crush… it’s natural for you to reject me…”

   “… Gaki-san—” Ai started, lifting her hand to reach out to the younger student.

   “Please don’t,” Risa said, stepping back.  “I’m perfectly fine!  I’m perfectly…”

   Suddenly, the short-haired girl felt something wet traveling down her cheeks.  Before she knew it, her entire face felt soaked.  How odd… she was smiling, yet the tears were uncontrollable… because they were tears from the heart.  A young 17-year-old girl could only contain so much emotion.

   “Eh… why am I…” Risa laughed shakily, trying to dry her tears with her sleeves to no avail.  “I don’t know what’s wrong with me, I’m sorry, I just…”

   “Gaki-san, I—”

   “Sorry for bothering you today, Sensei,” Risa said quickly, ducking her head so as not to show her embarrassed face.  “If you can, please forget this ever happened and please don’t let it burden you.”

   After a quick bow, the young girl turned around and ran out of the courtyard and disappeared into the school building.  Ai called her name but failed to let her voice out loudly enough.  She tried to reach out, even, but slowly put her hand down.  She clenched her hand into a fist as if to hold on to something, to herself.

   This… is the best way… right?

Oh yeah, I did it.  :twisted:

btw, I don't know when I'm closing the poll but it looks like School-life is winning by a LOT so... yeah, we'll see though :P
But I got some real kickass ideas for each of the genres...

A question for all: If i do write another school-life fic, would you guys be angry if i make the school not very school-like?  It might have a twist of k-drama in it too (cuz that's just in my blood and i'm so obsessed with dramas these days)  :nervous

just a quick survey so I can think things through before I over-plan, you know? XD

anyway, this chapter marked the end of a certain arc... kinda but not really :lol:

 :byebye: :sleep:
