TITLE 2ND RELATIONSHIP
CHAPTER IV DRAWING UP A LINE
The next morning the alarm went off, but Rika seemed not to hear, she was very tired yesterday due to exercise and the fact that she had been up late because the discourse.
“Rika-ojousama.”The housekeeper knocked on the door, but Rika did not respond. “Rika ojousama.” She opened the door and entered the room which was still asleep Rika, she approached and shook her shoulder to wake her. “What happens.” Rika said with a sleepy voice.
“It's time to get up Rika ojousama.” “WHAT!?” . Rika jumped up from the bed. “What time is it?.” “ Is 6:30 am.” “wha? I have get ready for the welcoming speech will be at 7:30, damn it”. Rika hurried and dressed in uniform took her backpack and started down the stairs leading into the hall.
“Sebastian prepares the car, we will going.” “ Yes Rika ojousama.” Sebastian replied. “Rika ojousama not going to breakfast?.” “ No, just give me an apple and my obento.” “ Ok.”
“ Rika ojousama the car is ready”. “Then let's go.”
Sebastian opened the car door to enter Rika, there was not much traffic on the course so they came to school in 30 minutes.
Arriving Sebastian opened the door for the car descended Rika which hurried to go to the auditorium where the ceremony would take at 8:00 am.
“On time 7:30 am.” Rika said as she watched several students accommodating place, approached the podium and up the stairs.
“Rika -chan, that good that you came.” Said one of the charge of the ceremony.
“President.” “ Now we are all complete, this will be your seat and you go after me and then you follow Rika.” Said to Rika and the another girl which was the representative of groups 1st year and who was very nervous.
“ Are you nervous?.” Rika asked to note that the girl was sweating from her forehead and hands trembled.
“Maybe, well a little.” The girl said lowering her head and looking down. “ It's normal to be nervous even I am, but if you study well your speech, you'll do fine.” Rika said showing a warm smile, holding hands with the girl that she relaxed a little after. “thank you.” The girl smiled and felt a relief. “I'm not the only nervous.”
After being 8:00 am every girl in the school began arrive to the auditorium, the ceremony was about to begin.
“Gokigenyou minna-sama.” Said the master of ceremonies. “ Today we will perform the opening ceremony of class, now a word from our director Heike Michiyo.” “ Very good morning you all let me give you a word of welcome all the incoming students as well as for those who credited the year, I hope you stay in school and be pleasant and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz are eager to learn and be filled with knowledge, since this "is not only them lawful, but very helpful "(quote from Sor Juana) for what follows.” That said gave the floor to the President who gave a long speech and then be the turn of Rika, who was a little nervous but confident as reviewing her speech several times to avoid mistakes, to finish after an excellent speech gave the floor to emcee.
The girl who represented the 1st grade students was surprised by Rika speech, and thought if Rika was nervous and even being able to give a wonderful speech, then she would too, follow suit from now on.
“Now listen to the speech of the representative of the first year student Matsuura Aya.”
Aya was a student freshly entered first, she had not been in school before, as the school has Sor Juana studies from Yochien (preschool) shogakko (school) Chugakko (Junior High School) Koto Gakko (Senior High School) and Daigaku (college) dividing schooling.
Aya had been chosen to give the speech because of the qualifying entrance examination which was the highest, like Rika.
“Miki!.” Ayumi said quietly, nudging Miki to wake her up.
“Ayumi what happens I was in my 5th dream.” She said lie was carved eyes. “ You missed Rika speech. – “Seriously? Too bad then i go back to sleep.” Miki closed her eyes again. “Snap out of it and pay attention Miki, missing shortly to finalize the ceremony.” Ayumi said with an angry expression on her face. “ I understand I will not sleep and witness the ceremony until will finish ok?.”
Miki raised her head and looked at the front just when Aya was ending her speech, and for some reason could not stop looking at her, something of Aya had caught her eye.
At the end Aya after giving her speech perfectly, is continuous with the emcee who said. “ And to end this ceremony we sing the hymn to our school which will be sung by the singing teacher Inaba Atsuko.” Who took the podium and began directing the hymn, the ceremony was ended and the girls went to their respective classroom.
“The next class is English.” “Which professor will be teaching us?.” “it's a new teacher.” “ hopefully not strict.” “Yea we have enough pressure with Yaguchi Sensei .”
“What about girls?.” Hitomi approached the girls were clustered at the door. “Hitomi-chan, hello.” “Hello.” Hitomi responded with a smile. “ We were talking about the new teacher .” “ the English new teacher.” “ Mmm. Well as I am new, all the teachers are new to me.” “ jajaja thats right.” Girls laughed. “Its true.”
“ And how good you are in English Hitomi-chan?.” “ Well it gives me fatal but I make the attempt.” “jajaja.” Girls laughed again. “ BTW call me Yossi .” “Yossi?.” emphasized the girls. “ they used call me that in my old school.”
“Ok then will Yossi.” –“ lol.” The girl seemed funny since Hitomi was very cheerful, even though she was the new girl she perfect fit.
“Girls come inside the classroom please the teacher will not be long in coming.” A voice which came from Rika. “ Hai!!” All the girls who were at the door including Hitomi entered the room due to the request of Rika
Minutes later the door opens and he enters a very bijin professor.
“Good morning class, How are you today?”
“I am your teacher of english my name is Kitamura Ayaka, so nice to meet to all.” Saying this he wrote her name and class in romanji.
“ to know each other, all of you, will introduce your selves, and as we are in English class you have say in English, we start for this row.” She said and pointed to the front row, the girls were presented as though they could in English.
When it came to present Rika who got up from her desk and spoke fairly fluent. “Oh very good your pronunciation is excellent.” Ayaka said surprised and happy.
“Next please.” Ayumi was next, and she also talk very well. Ayaka seemed happy she had at least two students who had good pronunciation, its was time for Miki who did not seem very excited, but she speak it perfectly, they were already 3 students.
“hai!!.” it was time for Hitomi. “Well just repeat the same as the other fellow said.” Thought.
Hitomi had a very funny pronunciation but not so bad in compared to other girls.
The class ended and Ayaka had written on the blackboard homework for the next class.
“Ok class, see you tomorrow.” See you tomorrow miss. The students answered.
It was time to break several girls got together and went with Hitomi. “ Yossi brought obento?.” “ Nop i'm going to buy something at the cafeteria.” “we eat together?” Asked the girls. “ Yeah right.” Hitomi responded smiling.
“ let's go.” Hitomi went along with the girls.
“Rika-chan ~ ~.” Ayumi and Miki approached to Rika. “Let's eat together.” “I can't.” Rika answer . “ Wha?? Nande Nande why??.” Miki exclaimed. Rika put an angry face, didn't like Miki act that way. “ I have help to the Seitokai, promised to reorganize all clubs and is a lot of work so I can't.” “ Boo hidoi Rika and I that ...”
“Miki stops saying those things.” Rika put a cold look. “I withdraw.” Road to Seitokai room to do their "duty."
“And she was, well today I just be you and Ayumi.” “Hai hai, let's eat.” Ayumi pulled Miki arm as was usual and the two walked away to eat their lunch.
“Good thing the new teacher is very relax.” “I was very nervous at the moment to introduce myself.” Yossi said putting her hand on her chest. “ but if you talk very good.” “Seriously? .” Yossi smiled. “But also as the three goddesses.” “ they war subarashii, suteki.” said the girl putting her hands together at the chest level.
“Yossi, i hear that you ate with them yesterday?.” “Really? How about? How was it?.” Yossi knew they were something special because the fuinki around them was different. “ Well, almost only talk among themselves, it was difficult to follow the conversation.” “Desho?? I once tried to talk to Miki but I found it very difficult the words don't came out.” “ tell me about it, Rika once ask me if I was all right, that day I had a headache and was not feeling very well and Rika realized it, all I did was run.” “ jajaja” girls laugh. “Seriously Rika is very insightful, she realizing that you felt bad.”
“ One day she gave me her notes.” “ Really? when we were in high school 3rd I miss one day and the next I gave her notes.” “ Uso! Maji de?”
“Honto desu.” “Mmm, they are well respected?.” Yossi ponder out.
“you don´t have a idea, Rika is very smart and good at sports and assists to six clubs, belongs to the student council, always very good at what he does, although it's very serious and reserved always cares about others and their father is a millionaire, she is cold and unattainable beauty.”
“Miki by contrast is less serious is known for being very flirty with either boys or girls, usually played with the feelings of others, is very frank and say everything she thinking, have good grades slightly below those of Rika, and can play all kinds of sports, she also comes from a wealthy family. She is relaxed and rebellious type who plays with people, but still suteki!.”
“And finally Ayumi she is quite a lady, like Rika and Miki their grades are the best, belongs to seven clubs which 5 is the president's, is the right hand of Rika, and who tidied Miki, is the calmest of the three. She is the type ojousama, polite, friendly and mature a good girl.” “The 3 are wonderful.” –“ Yes!.” The girls sigh. “Ehh so they are the heroines of the school, I thought maybe I could make friends with Rika but seems impossible now, but perhaps maybe I just want a normal life at school get along with all my co-classes and make friends, and the three on the contrary seem to keep people away, we're very different”. Hitomi thought.
Rika entered the office of the Seitokai but but was empty, the work was assigned to her was at the desk so she took it and sat down to read it, proceeded to analyze it and inadvertently the break was almost up, time passed quickly reading the work that she had no time to eat her obento.
" 've eaten already Rika-chan?" Ayumi asked. "here you go, acting again as a mom." " Is that you know, she is a workaholic sure she have not eaten her obento." "hai-hai, if she don't ate is their fault for choosing to work to eat with us ." Miki said making a face of disgust.
The bell rang again and the rest was terminated
All the girls went to their respective rooms. Miki and Ayumi entered her classroom and realized that Rika had not arrived.
Rika rushed to get to the classroom, opened the door and sat down at her desk.
Just before the next teacher arived, Yaguchi entered the class and left her things on the desk.
"Today in class we see the topic inverse trigonometric fractions and do some exercises. Yaguchi wrote several problems on the board. "Well who wants to do it?." I ask but one raised her hand even Rika who seemed a little listless.
"Very well then I will choose." I look at his list and he remembered the girls who had a perfect score. "Ok Ishikawa and Yoshizawa pass please." Hitomi and Rika get up from them place and went to the blackboard both took a piece of chalk and started to solve the problem.
Hitomi already had more than half but Rika was not getting to even half of the process, Hitomi turned to see the progress of Rika and notice that was a little pale and suddenly collapse, leaning on the board and then fall to the floor unconscious, whole class was alarmed Miki and Ayumi quickly get up from their desks and approached to Rika who was on the floor unconscious.
Teacher, we will take Rika to the infirmary. Miki and Ayumi said.
“yes quickly please.” Suggested concerned.
Miki and Ayum took Rika holding each arm and putting it around their necks leaving the room and going to the infirmary where Rika sat down on the bed so Nakazawa sensei could check her health.
“She seem well it was only a slight anemia that’s why she fainting, she is still asleep now wait to she wake up.” Nakazawa sensei said.
Miki and Ayumi looked very worried but listening to Nakazawa sensei reassure them.
“Girls return to class please.” “can I stay a little longer?” Miki ask. “ Ok but only for a while.” Ayumi said goodbye and retired to her classroom relieved to know it was not serious but she thought it had been caused due to bad nutrition and overwork that Rika passed out, Ayumi entered her classroom and told the teacher that Rika fainted due to a mild anemia, so Yaguchi and the students quieted down.
Miki took a seat next to the bed where Rika was. “ Baka! that's because you didn't eat your obento.” Miki felt a little guilty because of comments she had made before, that Rika was a workaholic and being angry about it, Miki looked at her watch and was preparing to return to classroom when Rika opened her eyes. “What happened?.” Rika asked. “What happened? you passed out.” Miki said with a serious tone. Miki didn't usually take things seriously was always relaxed, but when it was about Rika she changed.” Sorry, i am causing problems to you and Ayumi.” Said crestfallen, she knew that Miki don't usually altered unless it was something that really bothered her. - Clearly not only worried us.
Miki said with a semblance of relief. “ i see you are awake, how you feel? Nakazawa sensei asked approaching to Rika.” “ I feel better.” “you passed by a slight anemia, tell me did you eat breakfast?.” She ask. Rika remembered she had not eaten for the anger and frustration on Monday, and because the preparing of the speech she was late and only had breakfast an apple, and if we add that she didn't ate her obento because the homework of the Seitokai, knew that if she said all of that would make Miki angry, so she lied and said that she had not eaten her obentou. “I understand, and still have your obento?.” Nakazawa sensei ask. “yes, i leave it in the room of Seitokai.” “I will get it.” Miki said, who rushed to pick up the obantou.
“excuse me.2 Miki opened the door and to her surprise she found the girl of freshmen who had caught her eye, Aya Matsuura . “What brings you here Fujimito san?.” Asked the president of the Seitokai. “Hitomi Saito sempai, Rika leave here her obento?.” “ Is this one here?.” Said the secretary. “yes that is, thanks Otani Masae sempai.” “ And Rika chan? Where is she, it´s supposed to we would be here at the end of the class.” Said the CFO. “ Ah sorry Miuna Saito sempai, is that Rika is busy and will not be able to come today and probably tomorrow to help either.” Miki consider Rika had to rest so she excuses her for their responsibilities. “What? But if there is much work to do, she can't do that is her responsibility.” Said the vice president. “Excuse Murata Megumi senpai but she may not attend, and i don't think it's a very difficult job, I'm sure you fend without Rika.”
“Rika is an indispensable member in Seitokai we need her help to reorganize the clubs.” Said Saito rising from the chair where she sat approaching towards to Miki.
“at least that.” “ at least that what?.2 Miki wonder. “You help us and you cover the place of Rika.” Miki didn't usually stand taking orders neither abide and less work organization, that was something that only Rika was good, she knew that Saito had said that to annoy her.
She knows that I didn't like do this sort of thing, Miki thought, however she didn't want to get involved Rika in the assignment, so she decided to accept the job. “ Ok I will take the place of Rika, I mean how hard is to reorganize the clubs.” “You have no idea?.” Murata said - the same way you have help. “Well look she is Aya Matsuura Group 1-A it would help Rika but it seems that now she will help you.” Otani commented. “ Here are the list of clubs these requests and these are the names of the students.” Miuna gave all folders to Miki, who was surprised to see how many files they were. “ I want you two to agree to finish reorganizing as the need for Thursday.” “ Thursday?.” Miki wonder. “yes my dear, I recommend you start today.” Said Saito putting her hand in the right shoulder of Miki. “and better hurry to return to the classroom the next class is about to begin.” Murata commented.
Miki and Aya left the room and headed of their classrooms. “We will meet after school in the library to do the job. Miki said.” “Okay we're at 3 o'clock then.” Aya said, before separating ways because their classrooms were in different buildings, Miki back to the infirmary and left the obento to Nakazawa sensei who said that would make sure Rika ate it, so Miki retired and continued her way to classroom where the teacher had not arrived.
“and it's Rika better? .” Wonder Ayumi with a worried face. “okay just fainted by skipping lunch and overwork.” “that good, but when the school is over, I will talk to her very seriously, that of skipping meals for do work is very wrong.” Said Ayumi putting her hands on her waist. “and all those folders?.” “ Are, or rather were the work of Rika.” “What do you mean?.” “ I offered to finish the job she was appointed.”
Miki doing office work and for the Seitokai??? It was the strangest thing she had ever heard. “If you need help I can ...” “ It’s okay”. Miki interrupted. “I will do it alone.”
The classroom door opened and Abe sensei who was ready to give her class which concluded the bell rings, and so keep the last class which was the singing, and was given another room so the girls moved to the singing class, where expected Inaba Atsuko sensei.
“well girls it's make me happy give again this class, I see a new face.” “ said Inaba sensei looking at Hitomi .” can you introduce. “ yes.” Hitomi get up from her seat. “My name is Hitomi Yoshizawa.” “Said bowing.” “ Hitomi san well take a seat and start the class, who helps me distribute these papers.” “I.” Replied one of the girls in the class who distributed the sheets. “Well I'm going to play the song on the piano and you will follow, according to the letter containing the letter handed to them.” Inaba began playing the piano and the other girls to follow her to the attention of any would sound great but Inaba had what is known as absolute pitch and noticed that there was a student who was not following the rhythm very well, opened his eyes and Seeking to be the girl who was new, had a very good voice but was not synchronized with the other, but for being the first day of his class thought let it go and see the next class.
Again rang the bell ending all classes, the girls went to her classroom to take their belongings and leave the school. Miki and Ayumi went to the entrance to wait for Rika.
Rika felt better, and thanked to Nakazawa sensei to went to her classroom to collect her things without knowing that Ayumi and had it and was waiting at the entrance of the school for her.
“Oh no, I forgot my bag of pens.” said Hitomi who was about to leave the building but return to the classroom to pick up the object forgotten, entered the room to look at her bank, to picked up her bag and was about to leave when the door opened, it was Rika who came for her things.
“Oh sorry. Rika said.” She almost collided with Hitomi who open the door. “ If you want your stuff Shibata san took them for you.” Hitomi said. “ I understand.” “and you feel better Ishikawa san?” “ yes is was only a slight fainting.” Rika said with a straight face, even felt threatened by Hitomi so didn't want to have any contact with her.
Hitomi opened her backpack and took out her notebook. “Ishikawa san you missed several classes take many notes, you can use them.” Said smiling, Hitomi thought the fact that they were different and that perhaps could not be friends no reason not to be friendly with Rika, but Rika didn't appreciate her kindness at all in fact she hated that Hitomi was kind.
“Yoshizawa san, don't need to worry about me, I would prefer that we don't speak to each other.” Rika said with a serious voice, Hitomi was surprised, the girls were given a description of Rika being cold and kind at the same time but then Hitomi could only see the cold side. “I'll be frank with you Yoshizawa san I don't like you, I do not like that try to be friendly to me and especially do not like that smile, I do not think like the other girls, I know you're just acting friendly and happy to please people, pleasuring the people to make friends, but I'm not convinced your poor performance, stop doing, mukatsuku hontoni.” That said Rika turned and left the room.
With this we will see if you keep acting friendly and happy, Rika thought, walking towards the entrance of the school where the expected Ayumi.
Hitomi stayed in shook. “What happened?.” Wondered, if Rika was as sharp as the girls said she could see behind that act of happy and smiling girl to make friends, that was true, Hitomi acting for make friend quickly.
But what's wrong with that, thought Hitomi, that was her way, she act like that from the school that didn't mean to act, and that was the way she is, but still had doubts, and if I'm not really like that and I go back to the way it was before? No, I would not, this is my real personality, not be stopped because someone else says.
Beyond unbalance Hitomi, Rika helped hitomi to realize that she was unique and didn't have to act on, the people would want her even if she did it would please them, what's wrong with being friendly with people, i am not wrong.
Is strange as people change one day these confused and suddenly everything is clear to the next, the words are powerful, Rika's words did open her eyes and define its personality, though she was not entirely sure going to try the new her and show Rika had no reason, I could make friends without the need to act.
“Here comes Rika chan.” Ayumi said. “ And you feel better?.” Miki wonder. “Yea much better, now if I can finish the work of the clubs.” “Forget it.” Miki said. “ You're not assigned to that task, Saito sempai told that I would replace you.” “What?”. Rika was surprised, Miki not used to like to do that kind of work. “everything is fixed now go to rest .” “But ...” “ No buts just go, take her Ayumi please .” “yes, Rika chan let's Miki take care of that.”
Miki will be fine? Rika thought the job assigned to her, was not easy, Ayumi saw Rika's face, had a serious expression. “Miki will do well, don't worry.” “I was not thinking about that.” “yeah right, to tell the true i more worried about you Rika chan.” 2it's okay, I'm better now.” “but not good if you skip meals.” “I know sorry about that, you now to have caused problems.” “All is well if you promise that you will take better care .” “Rika closed her eyes.” “I promise.” “ Well here is my stop.” The driver opened the door and Ayumi under the car to goodbye to Rika and entered to her house.
Sebastian took Rika to their respective mansion, arriving Rika went upstairs changed clothes and did their homework, then was to the dining room for dinner, and then went upstairs to take a bath then sleep, didn't want to repeat today's incident, didn’t like to show her weak side, much less cause problems for others, with that thought Rika fell into a deep sleep.
