    The Eternal Summer

    A fic I had been working on for the most part of the year... I hope whoever reads it will like it ^^

    Prologue – The Winter Sorrow


    January 1, 2010. 6:57 PM. Local Park, Shizuoka, Shizuoka.

    A good friend of mine once said that the first day within a new year will determine how the rest of the year will go. His logic was that no one would be heartless enough to deliver bad news during January 1st unless if the situation really can’t be helped.

    So…what is my girlfriend doing to me right now? Her words…those are words that she is never supposed to ever say, let alone during New Year’s.

    “I think we should see other people.”

    That single sentence reverberated loudly inside my head, blocking any semblance of a rational thought I might have had. The night was bitterly cold, yet a single sentence from the girl I lov—no, the girl I thought I loved, made me feel much colder inside than the falling snow around me ever could.

    “Why?” I asked her simply, but regretted it as soon as the word slipped through my lips. It doesn’t matter, not really. My girlfriend is leaving me, and it really doesn’t matter why she’s doing it, the only thing that does matter is the fact that she is leaving.

    Her eyes, that used to hold so much warmth and love, briefly met with mine, and it was clear that whatever spark we used to have was gone. She shuffled her feet a little before finally saying, “I…just think you deserve better.” Her tone was calm, indifferent.

    “Bullshit!” I snapped. “If you had really believed that, then you would have broken up with me long before today… You’re not that heartless to do it on New Year’s Day!” I reasoned with her. It was pointless but…I needed to convince myself that what’s happening today is not my fault.

    “But I am. And that’s why you should find another girlfriend. I’m not for you.” After saying that, she turned around and walked away, giving me what would be my first ever broken heart. “Natsumi!” I cried out to her, but I didn’t receive even one returning glance.

    It’s over.

    It’s all…over.

    I can’t really remember what else happened after that, all I knew was that I ended up sitting in a park bench, staring at the dark, snowing winter sky of Shizuoka alone. The coldness of winter never really strikes you until you are truly alone, when you feel that you have no one to accompany you through your mundane daily routines. Snowflakes drizzled down from the sky, covering every single tree present in the park. Bright neon lights flashed from the city beyond, and I could hear the faint sound of the cheerful laughter of couples as they strolled down the shopping boulevard.

    Heh… how unfair.

    “Ken, is that you?” Suddenly a voice pulled me out of my trance. I turned around and saw my two good friends, Kazuhiko and Mayumi standing before me with a very worried look in their faces. “What happened bro?” Kazuhiko asked me as he and Mayumi took their seats on the park bench, sandwiching me. “I expected you to be on a date with Hinata-san right about now.”

    Mayumi slapped him across the back of his head, giving Kazuhiko a very angry glare. “Obviously Natsumi-chan just broke up with him, be more sensitive will you?!” She told him matter-of-factly. I turned towards Mayumi and gave her, for lack of a better word, a WTF look. Awkward situations like these have never really been her forte, but still, really Mayumi? Really?

    “Ehe..he, sorry about that Ken.” She gave a nervous laugh, only realizing her blunder now. I leaned back and heaved a large sigh, my foggy breath clouding my vision.

    “Well, you’re right, no need to be sorry.” I started. “She didn’t give me a reason, she just…left. I don’t get it, I really don’t.”

    “Mayumi, you’re her good friend right? Has she been cheating on me? Has she been seeing another guy all this time? Did I do something wrong? Did I piss her off? Did I…” I continued to ramble for the next 3 minutes or so, venting out all of my frustrations on no one in particular. “Kazu, you know her well too right? What did I do man, what did I do-“ My words were cut short as Kazuhiko rose from his seat and slapped me right across the face. Hard. Mayumi shrieked a little, and gave Kazuhiko an incredulous glance, as if saying “What the hell did you do that for?!”

    Well, I can’t fault my childhood friend for not understanding the way men do things. I rubbed my burning cheek and gave a quiet chuckle. “Thanks for that…” I told Kazuhiko, his slap helping me to clear my thoughts and snap back to reality. “No problem dude.” Kazuhiko replied nonchalantly, plopping himself down on the park bench again. “Wha-what is this, I don’t even…” Mayumi commented, unable to finish her sentence.

    “It’s how we men handle things, President-chan~” Kazuhiko patronizingly teased the girl beside me.

    “Not today, Bakazu, NOT TODAY!” Mayumi warned him in a threatening tone.

    “Ooo, I’m so scared~”

    “WHY I OUGHTA—“

    “Why are you two even here anyways?” I interrupted the both of them before they reach a new level of stupid. “If you guys tell me you’re dating, I swear to god I’m gonna commit suicide because nothing in this world is right anymore.” I told them half-jokingly.

    “Aww, well, president here was just being so persistent, she was all like ‘Just one night with you is all I want, Kazuhiko-sama!’ and so being the awesome man that I am, I—“ Before Kazu could finish his sentence, Mayumi slapped Kazuhiko on the back of his head again, this time with increased intensity. “Don’t be an idiot, I’d rather die than call you ‘Kazuhiko-sama’!” Mayumi said to him angrily.

    “GET TO THE POINT!” I snapped at the both of them.

    “Oh right, well, er…we were on a date….so to speak.” Mayumi trailed off, her face turning a bright shade of red. “Yes, and we were on our way to a love hotel, but then we saw you looking all pathetic here and decided to stop by!” Kazuhiko interjected with another one of his brilliant comments. “We were not! Don’t be stupid! Don’t believe him Ken, we were totally NOT going to such a seedy place like that!” Mayumi vehemently denied Kazuhiko’s allegations.

    If I could describe my expression right now…it would probably be a mix of surprise, shock, WTF-ness, and just a small tinge of insanity. My mouth was wide open and I was staring at Mayumi with a look of pure disbelief, as if I was her father and she had just made a really bad choice for a boyfriend. Well, the last part about bad choice is right actually.

    “GAH, KAZU, THIS IS ALL YOU FAULT!” Mayumi roared, and rose from her seat, applying what most wrestling fans would know as a headlock to my not-so-brilliant friend. “Ow, Ow, OW, OWW, IT HURTS WHEN FLAT GIRLS LIKE YOU DO IT, LET GO OF ME!” Kazuhiko protested, but it only made my class president to squeeze at his head even harder. “WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT ME YOU LITTLE TWERP!” Mayumi has always been rather sensitive about her bust size.

    Now I really should be depressed but the scene in front of me right now was so ridiculous and breathtakingly stupid that I can’t help but laugh. These two are such massive idiots; I can’t imagine them being any other way though. Without them, I wouldn’t have befriended my recently-departed girlfriend too. My mind wandered back to that faithful day in January when Kazuhiko first told me about his stupid bet…

    Hmm, you created this by yourself? It was very creative and interesting, I like it. I could definitely relate to it (even though I've never had a girlfriend myself), so overall I think it was pretty good ^^. Keep it up

    Re: The Eternal Summer

    Ahaha, thanks for your compliment, and yeah, this is my own work. Never been a fan of plagiarism.

    Anyways...here's the first chapter, sorry if anyone is actually waiting for it XD

    Chapter 1 – Nobody Does Anything in January

      Spoiler: Chapter 1 

    January 8th, 2009, 6:30 AM Shizuoka, Shizuoka Prefecture

    God, I hate January.

    Everything is freakishly cold, I gotta go back to school… and nobody does anything worth noticing in January. These thoughts swirled in my head as I walked slowly in the direction of my high school. “Ahhh, I want more holidays, I haven’t even finished watching my collection of movies” I moaned loudly. “I presume by movies, you mean porn, right?” Suddenly, an all-too familiar voice spoke out from behind me. “I see you haven’t changed at all within the holidays” I commented, turning around to face the owner of the voice. And sure enough, standing in front of me was Kazuhiko Toyama, my friend since the fifth grade….stretching the definition of “friend” extensively, of course. Of all the years I have been friends with him, he had eyes for only one thing. Females. Being a guy, I can’t really say for sure if he is handsome, but one thing is for sure. The bastard is a prolific womanizer. Since the beginning of our high school life 1 and a half years ago, he has had 28 girlfriends…and counting, 28 last time I checked, anyways. And if the rumors circulating around the campus are true, there is a special fanclub in the school dedicated to worshipping him. Charming guy, I guess…

    “Sooo, Yamazaki-kun, any plans to advance your non-existent lovelife this year?” he asked, a cocky grin dominating his face. “So far, our score is what, infinity in my favour?” I rolled my eyes at his statement. “Look, that contest we had was never a joint agreement; you just came to my house one day and started blabbering about how you would have a dozen girlfriends before I got one. I neither replied nor agreed to that statement, so you are on a one-horse race here buddy.” Kazuhiko merely gave an even cockier grin and took out a tape recorder, an ancient technology by our current standards. “And…let’s press play now shall we?” As soon as he said that, a shrilly voice came out from the speakers of the contraption, a voice that belongs to a pre-adolescent boy. “Oh shut up you annoying bastard, just wait and see, by the time we are in high school, you would be but a pebble in the foundation of my all-girl-conquering dynasty!” Another voice emanated from the speakers, the voice of a pre-adolescent boy as well, rebutting the statement. “Ahahahahaha, don’t make me laugh, boy, by the time we are in high school, I would have a dozen girlfriends before you even got ONE! You make me laugh so hard..” The voice never finished his statement however, as the target of the statement interrupted him promptly. “Oh, don’t be full of yourself you cocky bastard, I’ll get 24 for every dozen you get! You can believe that. Hell, I’ll even do it before I am a senior! I’ll be your servant for a month if I don’t make it!” Kazuhiko then pressed the stop button, and the voice stopped speaking immediately. Thankfully.

    Awkward silence.

    “I can get you sued for that, that’s invasion of privacy!” I tried to divert the subject. Fruitlessly. “Ahh, well, eitherway, Yamazaki-kun, if we go by simple math, I have 34 girlfriends, so you need…umm, let’s see…34 divided by 12…” Kazuhiko muttered incoherently for the next few moments, calculating.

    “AHH, 52 girlfriends. Before the end of this school year. Which makes an average of…hmm, say, 9 girls a month counting from this day onward. So I suggest you start turning on your charm ”

    “Wh-wh-WHAT??!!! THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!”

    “Well, I am not the one who made retarded statements, don’t blame me..”

    “We were 10!! Who the hell thinks about what they are saying when they’re 10!”

    “Quit evading my point, Yamazaki-kun, just accept it and be my servant already.”

    “N-no WAY! I won’t give up till the last minute of the last day of this semester!”

    Kazuhiko chuckled quietly. “Prolonging the inevitable, I’d say, but well…” He shrugged. “Prisoners on death row get a last meal, so well, why not, eh? This’ll be kinda interesting to see anyway.” Unfortunately, before I could reply with a scathing remark, the large building of Shizuoka High appeared, white, austere, old, intimidating, and abnormally large. “Back in hell…” I thought to myself as I walked past the opening gate of the school.

    The rest of the morning passed by quickly, filled with the usual start-of-semester speech by the principal of the school. I barely stayed awake in the duration of the speech, but thanks to Kazuhiko’s incessant whispering of “servant, servant, servant” in my ear, sleeping is nigh impossible. And by a rather painful twist of fate, it turns out that Kazuhiko and I are in the same class, class 2-F. “My god, Ken, I think that this is a premonition ya know… Servants have to stay near his master to make it easy to serve him.” Kazuhiko annoyingly commented as soon as I took my seat. He took the seat next to mine, obviously.

    “Oh, shaddup, I don’t have time for this.” I replied rather angrily, tossing my eraser at him. Easily evading it, Kazuhiko’s mouth opened yet again. “For once, you are right, Yamazaki, I mean, as Sun Tzu had said, know your enemy and know yourself, and you can win 100 battles without fail.” I gave him an are-you-retarded-look, but he didn’t seem to notice, as he continued on talking. “So, my soon-to-be servant, we need to survey our surroundings! We need to figure out who is worth dating, in this very classroom!! Based on that information, we shall then strike forward on our conquest of these sophomores’ hearts!” Kazuhiko finished his “inspirational” speech.

    “…Did you forget to take your meds today or something?” I asked him. “SILENCE, FOOL! This is high-level strategy right here! If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail! And sides...” He paused and gave me a condescending look. “Don’t you think you need this more than me? Unless if you have finally accepted the fact that you are going to be my servant, that is.”

    My head shot up at his last sentence. “NEVER!!” I exclaimed loudly, inviting a few stares from the people in the class. “Ehh…sorry about that…” I muttered meekly, and buried my head in my table yet again.

    “Tsk, tsk, tsk, well, I guess I’ll impart some of my wisdom to you, considering you need to date 52 girls in 6 months.” After saying that, Kazuhiko reached into his bag and pulled out a black notebook. “Is that the Death Note or something? Do you kill their boyfriends and force em to go on a date with you that way?” Kazuhiko ignored my comment and started flipping through the pages of the book, which looked to be meticulously organized, with sticky notes popping out from the upper part of the book, and he is never, and I do mean NEVER organized, so for what’s worth, the book has to mean something.

    “Let’s see now…” he muttered to himself, stroking an imaginary beard. “AHH, here it is, data of the girls in class 2-F, take a look.” He passed the black notebook to me. I read the page he was talking about, not knowing what to expect. Well…frankly, I was blown away. The book contained detailed analysis of each and every girl in my class. What is their favourite food, their last recorded height and weight, hobbies, hell, even their last recorded measurements are there! “Kazuhiko….I don’t even know what to say here… Do you stalk these girls…?” I stuttered, still shocked from the discovery I just made. “Nope, not really, I am just incredibly close with the school nurse and counselor, that’s all, so obviously I can gain easy access to their personal data.” He replied calmly. I honestly didn’t know whether to be pleased or freaked out, so I resorted to just opening and closing my mouth repeatedly, like a fish out of water.

    “Annnyywayyysss, from psychoanalysis of your personality and the girls of our class…I have deduced that there are three possible candidates for you…” He stood up and looked around. “Ahh, her.” He pointed at a random girl who sat three rows in front of me. “Chihiro Fushioka, class treasurer, 164 cm, 54 kg, an average GPA of 9.4, so she is brilliant, obviously. Always uses red rimmed glasses, kinda cute, if I do say so myself, and her physical test scores ain’t so bad either. Her only drawback….she is…well, a control freak. But well, you are an obedient kinda guy anyways, right, Ken?” Before I could reply to him, he turned around and pointed his finger at yet another girl. “ And next up, we have, Kyouko Matsushiro, 167 cm, 52 kg, killer body, toned as hell, star of the school track team and rumors say she is an excellent cook. GPA of 7.9, so an above average student, butt…well, she is colder than the Siberian winter, but I am sure with attentive care and love from you, you can melt her heart.” And again, before I could even open my mouth to come up with a reply, he pointed his finger at a girl who sat right next to me. Thankfully, he still had the common sense to crouch down and lower his voice. “Lastly, we have… Yui Matsuda. 162 cm, 48 kg, face of an angel, caring, devoted, loving, attentive, basically your perfect housewife. Sadly, she is quite weak physically, and mentally…and honestly, too conservative and boring for me. But then again, you aren’t exactly famous for throwing wild parties, so I think she’ll fit in just nice with you.” Kazuhiko finally finished his lecture.

    I thought about what he said, albeit with a grain of salt. “Well, Kazu…you make a fair point there, but I think I’ll look for my own targets, been here six months after all, I think I can make a good choice…for exampleeee…HER!” I randomly pointed my finger dramatically at a random girl in the crowd. Kazuhiko glanced at the direction of my finger and grinned. “My boy, you have much to learn… look at page 162 of my book….the one with a blood red sticky post on top.”

    Wait, what?

    “I was only joking dude, I was only randomly pointing my finger, I wasn’t actually serious.” I said. Kazuhiko merely smiled. “Tell you what dude, I’ll make a deal… if you can get the girl you just pointed at, before the end of this semester, I’ll be your servant till the end of the whole freakin YEAR.”

    Huh? Who is this girl anyway?

    “Of course, you are not allowed to look at her info beforehand if you plan to make this deal.” Kazuhiko then extended his hand, his other hand keeping his black book shut. “So? Deal? No deal?” I felt like I was being swindled…but hey, at least I don’t have to date 52 girls, right? “Deal” I confidently said, shaking his hand.

    In retrospect, I should’ve just chased after those 52 girls.

    “Very well, then, go ahead and look at her data.” Kazuhiko moved his hands away and passed the book on to me. “Great, so why does it have a blood red sticky on it anyways? Can’t you pick a happier colour?” I asked him nonchalantly, flipping the pages of his book. “You should know, Yamazaki, that my book is colour-coded, blue is for my past girlfriends,..”

    Well, there were a lot of those, apparently.

    “Yellow is for girls who I plan to date soon..”

    Abundant as well

    “And blood red..” He turned and faced me. “Are for girls who I deem to be unreachable…as in, undateable, for one reason or another, and…” He brought his face closer to mine, his voice barely a whisper. “…so far, there are only three girls who have received that honour, your sister, my sister, and..” He pressed his finger hard on the page I had just reached, leaving a mark. “her, Natsumi Hinata .”

    “Un-unreachable?” I muttered unintelligibly and decided to read her info before jumping to conclusions. Natsumi Hinata, height 165 cmn, weight 47 kg, a balanced beauty, being breathtakingly beautiful yet having an hourglass figure at the same time, her measurements being almost directly proportional to each other. Loves the colour sky blue, looks great in a yukata, prolific athlete, although she has never joined a club since middle school, an average GPA of 9.1, and can speak 6 different languages fluently.

    Basically, perfect, so why did Kazuhiko deem her unreachable?

    I flipped the page, and there, written in red ink, was the reason why.

    “MENTALLY UNSTABLE DUE TO TRAUMATIZING PAST EXPERIENCES, PRONE TO PSYCHOTIC BURSTS OF RAGE” And underneath that, was yet another side note, added by Kazuhiko recently, judging from the still deep colour of the ink. “POSSIBLE RELATIONS TO THE UNDERWORLD, ALTHOUGH NOT DIRECTLY”

    Goddamn, what have I gotten myself into?

    Oh yeah, I posted it in AnimeSuki and Sakurahana as well. The one in AnimeSuki is under the Fan Creations section, so perhaps you saw it there. Not as many views though, there are a lot of threads in AS for fan-made stuff so mine is kind of pushed back xD

    Paladinoras, have you ever post similar story at other site as well?
    Oh yeah, I posted it in AnimeSuki and Sakurahana as well. The one in AnimeSuki is under the Fan Creations section, so perhaps you saw it there. Not as many views though, there are a lot of threads in AS for fan-made stuff so mine is kind of pushed back xD

    Chapter 2 – Chocolates? No way!
      Spoiler: Chapter 2 part 1 

    February 8th, 10:45 AM, Shizuoka High School, Shizuoka, Shizuoka District

    A month has passed since that faithful day in January where Kazuhiko had assigned me to a task he deemed impossible. To make Natsumi Hinata, potentially the most beautiful girl in my class, my girlfriend, and before the end of the June no less as if the task is not incredibly arduous already.

    Either that or I would have to serve his sad ass for one whole month.

    Well, hell would freeze over before I’d even think about becoming his personal bitch, so I am chasing after her, for better or for worse.

    And so far, the task does look impossible.

    It’s not that she’s cold, or unfriendly, or evil, or cold. Wait, did I say cold already? Well, either way, she’s not, so don’t get the wrong impression. It’s just that she has this….unexplainable, untouchable aura around her. Everytime I tried to approach her and strike up a conversation, it feels like there are daggers pointed at me, ready to kill me the moment I say my first word. Maybe this is why that even Kazuhiko would be intimidated by her?

    One thing’s for sure though…at this rate, I am so screwed.

    But heyy, six days and it’s Valentine, the holy lovers day or something, right??? Maybe something good will come out of that day! Yes, yes, must be optimistic now!

    I was meditating deeply concerning this matter during lunch today, and as usual, Kazuhiko was there to give me a second opinion.

    “Holy lovers day? Boy, are you high on crack or something?” Kazuhiko responded when I told him about my plans for Valentines.

    ….Okay, not exactly the answer I was expecting.

    “I’ll tell you what Valentine’s all about, dude, it’s about…THE CHOCOLATES!” Kazuhiko explained dramatically, waving his hands in the air. “I mean, let’s just face the facts right here and now man, chocolates are a rare commodity around these part, and Valentines is the only day when I can use my god-given talent to full use!”

    I suppose by talent he meant a defective brain.

    “Girls on Valentines will do their very best to buy, and or, even better, MAKE chocolates for guys all around the world, and it is only fair for us to APPRECIATE their effort and accept those chocolates….and sell them on the internet soon after!” Kazuhiko continued, sounding more and more like a deranged Adolf Hitler.

    “…I am pretty sure that’s called exploitation.” I replied, bursting his bubble.

    But he was not to be denied.

    “NONSENSE!” He exclaimed loudly. “I mean, if someone gives you a present, and then you give it back, no matter for what reason, it’s impolite, right?! Chocolates are basically the same, I mean, there is this girl, who’s feelings are so strong for you that she would spend hours to get you that perfect chocolate, and you are gonna say NO? Who does that, really??!!”

    “I am not so sure that selling those “perfect” chocolates is their idea of getting appreciated.” I rebutted his statement.

    “Oh comeeee on, you have to look at the bigger picture here man!!” Kazuhiko argued. “I mean, okay, I sell their chocolates now, but I am gonna spend it on them again when I take them out on dates, right?? I am just circulating the money around to benefit the economy here!”

    “Oh, whatever, it’s no use arguing with you and your crazy theories” I replied, exasperated. “I’m leaving now, see ya around.”

    As I stood up and walked towards the canteen door, I can still hear his voice reaching out to me.

    “YOU ARE ONLY DENYING IT CAUSE YOU KNOW IT’S THE TRUTH!!”

    February 14th 2009, 6:30 AM, Shizuoka High, Shizuoka, Shizuoka District

    And so the fateful day arrives. The weather has improved significantly since last January, the winter sky starting to disperse in favor of the spring sun. A sign of things to come, perhaps?

    I certainly hope so; I need a bloody miracle if I wanna pull this off.

    So what are my plans for this day you ask?

    Absolutely NOTHING! I am just gonna let the winds of fate do their jobs. Not like there is much else I can do anyways, hell, I can’t even TALK to her, let alone give her a box of chocolates… And I am dead broke anyways, Kazuhiko had a point when he said that chocolates are a rare commodity, they are freakishly expensive! I didn’t even have enough money left in my wallet to buy a Snicker bar…

    And as I walked into my classroom, looks like fate doesn’t like me much. In fact, I’d say it is giving me the proverbial middle finger. As you’d all know by now, my seat is placed directly beside Kazuhiko’s…who is a serial dater. In fact, serial dater would be an understatement, more like a chaining machine-gun dater.

    Valentine’s Day Translation: Chocolate Rain

    That was not an exaggeration, merely an expression of truth. His desk was filled with so many chocolates that you can’t even see the bloody desk. Heart-shaped, normal shaped, dog-shaped (yes, those exist, apparently), about every single possible variety of chocolate seemed to be present there. None of my classmates seemed to be surprised in any shape or form; Kazuhiko’s reputation precedes him abundantly.

    Kazuhiko, however, did not look happy at all. He stared pensively at the enormous pile of cocoa in front of him. “What’s the matter, bro, thinking about how the hell are you gonna bring all these chocolates home?” I asked him jokingly. “This…this is terrible.” He muttered, almost inaudibly. “Wow, too much even for you, huh? Well, no worries, I’ll help to take some of this home with me!” I replied, not sure if I am supposed to be comforting a man who got more chocolates than a freakin factory. He suddenly turned around and looked at me in the eyes, his face painted with a severely pained and depressed expression. Suddenly, he grabbed my shirt and started yelling at me.

    “DON’T YOU GET IT?? THIS IS NOT ENOUGH!!!”

    “YOU CRAZY BASTARD, HOW THE HELL IS THAT NOT ENOUGH?” I yelled back at him, in an equally, if not louder voice.

    “I-I-I…got 54 chocolates last year, Ken…this is…this is”

    “THAT’S A CRAPLOAD MORE THAN 54, YOU OVERZEALOUS PRICK!”

    “IT’S ONLY 68!!! 60 FRIGGING 8!! I EXPECTED 80, AT THE BARE MINIMUM!!!”

    “YOU PSYCHOTIC MORON, HOW THE HELL CAN YOU GET 80 CHOCOLATES?? YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW 80 GIRLS!”

    “SO WHAT??? MOST OF THESE CAME FROM PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW ANYWAYS!!!”

    …..Our stupid banter continued for another 2 minutes or so, until I realized that our conversation was about as productive as trying to revive a dead horse. I kicked some of the chocolates that had rolled from Kazuhiko’s table to mine away and sat down. As usual, there were 3 boxes of chocolate in my desk. One from my sister, one from the lead vocalist of my band, and one from someone who has given me chocolates repeatedly for the past three years, but has never talked to me in person. Feels kinda weird to have an admirer, but whatever.

    Speaking of my band, I haven’t jammed with them in a while… maybe I’ll do that in the weekend.

    I leaned back in my seat and scanned the classroom for Natsumi. And as usual, she was sitting in her seat, directly in front of the whiteboard. Come to think of it, does she study a lot? Kazuhiko said her GPA is 9.1, does that make her some kind of study freak or something? From what I can see, all she does during class is space out and stare blankly at the windows... strange. Oh, and of course, she looks gorgeous today, her face basking in the morning sun. How can a girl that cute and pretty have a traumatizing past..?

    Actually now that I think about it, I accepted Kazuhiko’s challenge…, but if I actually, by some heavenly miracle, manage to make her my girlfriend…

    Then what?

    Honestly, while I find her to be irresistibly attractive and cute, I know next to nothing about her. Don’t relationships require more than just physical attraction to work? For better or for worse, I am going to get to know her better, and not for some stupid bet I made with my friend 7 years ago, but simply cause I find her… interesting.

    With that thought, in mind, I inhaled deeply and prepared myself for what was surely going to be a great school day!

    7 hours later…

    “I HATE SCHOOL!” I yelled out loudly, slamming my bag down on my desk. “I mean, COME ON, a surprise test on SATURDAY? And at VALENTINE’S? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?” Kazuhiko didn’t give a retarded reply as usual, his face incredibly grim and forlorn. Ever since this morning, he has been muttering “more more more” repeatedly, like a broken tape recorder. “Gee, you sure have a great timing for knowing when to shut up.” I commented sarcastically. I think he muttered something along the lines of “shut up, peasant” as a response. Seeing that he is not gonna be the best conversational partner right now, I decided to leave him alone and headed towards my favourite spot in the whole school.

    I climbed what seemed to be a million steps before I managed to reach the exit door leading to the roof. I am not really sure why I like the roof, maybe cause it’s so deserted and barren, plus I get a real good view of the city from there. And it seems like I was not the only one who thought so, since someone was already there ahead of me.

    And that person was none other than Natsumi Hinata.

    Holy crap, has lady luck finally developed a thing for me?
