I never thought that entering high school would be an adventure. I've joined the music club and spent a week persuading(annoying) Iwasaki to join, we where forced to play a concert out of short notice. I got punched in the face trying to protect Iwasaki from being attacked by her 'victim of heart broken'. I am currently dating, well fake dating, Iwasaki to help her not get attacked by another pissed of guy who got rejected, to be honest I'm protecting the guys who confess to her in this school. Even though I'm doing this task, I made more enemies in this school. Most of them are basically dudes. And finally helped Iwasaki from her brother who, turns out, was protecting her even if it meant being hated. All of that did not preper for what will happen next.
"WHAAT!? YOU'RE DATING THE HONNOR STUDENT. HOW COME I'M THE ONY ONE WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS?" Taki shouts.
"Hey keep it down it's still early in the morning. I'm surprised that you didn't know, since she always come in our classroom and one other day. She basically huged me in front of everyone in class almost every day." I said.
"Well obviously I couldn't since I've been busy. That's not the point here. The point is you didn't tell me, your best friend." he said.
"It doesn't matter if I told you, the outcome is still the same. You would still do what you always do." I said.
Suzuki Sensei comes in and interrupts our conversation and homeroom starts for the day.
"Just a reminder, Mid terms are coming up and as of today club activities will be suspended until the end of the test period. Don't you dare think that all of this means you should be frolliking around. If you fail even one test, you have to take up remedial classes during summer break. "she explained.
It's now lunch time. And since club rooms are closed Iwasaki came to our classroom for lunch and by now you would guess how many people want to punch my face.
"Hey Hayashi. What's your average score in test?" Nakano asks.
"Huh, where did that come from all of a sudden?" I asked my own questions.
"I know it's kinda random and since exams are coming up I just want to know how much you get on your tests. Not that I can brag since I mostly get below average." oh she's just asking for someone to tutor her or something like that.
"It depends on what topic we're writing about but most of the time I get past 60. But I'm pretty sure, she gets better grades than everyone here, isn't that right Miss Honnor student?"I asked Iwasaki.
"Why are you looking at me all of the sudden? Well I do get good grades I think." she says. If we translate good grades on her language it means that she gets top tens in the grade rankings. She got to this school out of recommendation, is how smart she is.
"I can't wait for summer vacation. We'll go to the beach, see girls in their bathing suites. It'll be the best summer that I'll never forget." Taki goes on about his hopes for the summer.
"Yeah all of that would be nice and it'll probably make summer great. As long as you don't fail these test, summer would be awesome." as soon as I said that Taki julted and stopped talking and started to sweat bullets.
"Ah yeah, tests pass 'em right. Got it." for some reason all of his enthusiasm became fear.
"Taki are you alright. Don't tell me? What's your best score you've ever got in a test?" I asked.
"Ahh...... Well.." he hesitated.
Judging by that reaction I could think it's worse than I think.
"Ah, how about we form a study group. That way we could help each other out on where we're lacking" Nakano suggested.
"That's a great idea. Where should we study, the library?" Iwasaki asked.
"I don't think that's a great idea. Since the exams are coming up. A lot of people would have the same Idea." I inputed.
"Then this only leads to studying at one of our houses. But my room is kinda small so I don't think all of us could fit so that's a no go." Nakano says.
"As much as I want to bring you hot and cute girls to my place, it'll be impossible because my house is pretty noisy so we'd hardly get any studying done." Taki says.
"My house is available. But my brother is having big business conference tonight with his clients. I doubt I'd be allowed to bring people home." Iwasaki says. Seriously, I swear that guy has the worst timing in the world.
"Then which means there's only one house left." as Nakano says that all of them looked at me simultaneously.
"Heh, mine!? Well there is no problem, but...." I'm afraid of them seeing my mother in her out of work state. Even though Iwasaki experienced it at first hand.
"Then it's decided. After school where heading to your house Hayashi." Nakano said enthusiastically.
Well we're all here in front of my house after we rode the train....... except.
"Why the hell are you here. I don't remember giving you an invitation." I said to Matsuyama. She apparently tagged along with neither our concern.
"Aw, why so rude Hayashi. You know it's rude to turn down a girl even though I got to the trouble coming this way." Matsuyama says.
"Except it'll be trouble of you to be here." I retorted.
"Hey, Hayashi. Who's this." Nakano asked.
"Oh you mean the girl who rudely invited herself. Her name is Shina Matsuyama. Don't worry how we met just know she's in the same grade as us." I said.
"Another girl. Man how can you be this lucky? I'd kill for your luck.KILL " Taki says as he freaks out.
"Oi, chill out over there. And also it's more like a curse than luck." I said to Taki.
"Besides I'm here for work purposes." she whispered after pulling me out of the crowd. I could only guess his intentions.
"Well whatever. The more we stand outside the less we cover today. So make your self at hoooooo..... MOM WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING IN THE HALL WAY." I was interrupted by my mom sleeping in the hallway surrounded by cans of empty beer. After I opened the door.
"Mmmm oh Ayaatoo, gmorni. I was bored while I waz all alone in this big houze." she says while she's drunk.
"Ah mom how many times do I have to tell you, stop drinking way too much. You know you can't handle your liquor. Why do I even bother it's like I'm talking to a rock or something. " I said that while picking her up.
"I'm sorry that you had to witness that. You can so long I have to put my mon in bed." I said.
"Mmm Ayaaato thaz sho mean even zhough I'm your mother zon't treat me like I'm child." she spouts out nonsense.
"When you're this drunk, you act more like a child." I said.
I finally got mom to bed so I quickly returned to my room.
"Sorry to keep you guys waiting. Aaah Matsuyama, I got one question here. What are you doing over there." I asked after seeing her looking through my stuff.
"Well since we're in a boys room. There is bound to be one ero magazine in here. Under the bed. No. How about in the wardrobe. Not here either. Under the storage compartment. Nothing are you even a boy in the first place." She stays.
"SIT DOWN. AND NOT HAVING ALL OF THAT DOESN'T MAKE ME ANY LESS OF A BOY." I shouted.
We then eventually started.
"OKay guys let's first scope out what we're lacking by writing this practice paper." I said and we all commenced.
"Taki what's the meaning of this." I'm gripping his page out of frustration. His score is 24.
"Man I knew you're much dumbfounded. But I'd never think that this would be be failing again." she said just to mock Taki.
"You're one to talk you my have ranked a bit higher between the two. It all all doesn't change the fact that you failed the test." I said. Her score 34.
"Well year show us your test then." Taki said. My score is 73 and Iwasaki's is 96.
"The problem one is right here." I looked at her. Her score is 12.
"It can't be helped. I'm not good at learning in stuff." Matsuyama says.
"Well what ever. Looks like we have definitely have a lot to do. Iwasaki, Let's divide our work load. We might make it if we keep it up like that?" I asked Iwasaki.
"Fine." she answered.
We kept going at it like this until the time for entrence exams came. Taki looks to be more nervous than everyone else here.
Our school has five subjects. Japanese which Taki was not good at, even worse than his average score, Math, which Nakano sucks at, Science, English and Social studies, which Matsuyama is terrible at all of the above. But I think with our help they'll sure be fine. I hope.
Today it's Math. This question, I didn't notice it before and naturally I didn't study for it. But for some reason I could solve it with a sinch.
The rest of the week has happened almost the same. And now in the school we're here to receive our results. And as always they will be a huge sigh by the class.
Whatever my name was called and I managed to get 97 points for English, 90 for Math, 98 for Science and 96 for Social studies. And it turns out that I overlapped Iwasaki to second place..
"How did you do it?" Iwasaki asked still in shock.
"I don't all I did was study like anyone else. " I answered.
"Then in that case, I'll have to pull my socks and study as hard as I can." she said with deboved Junior.
As for others avoided not failing and not taking any remedial lessons.
"Ah yeah the hell of going to school on summer vacation is finally over. Now we could finally get to the beach." Taki said.
"You're way too committed to this aren't you. But The beach doesn't so much bad. What do you guys think?" I asked.
"Sure the beach would be fun. Could me in." Nakano said.
"I think that will be fine." Iwasaki says.
"I'd go wherever you go." Matsuyama says.
"Hey that last agreement sounded weird. Could you please tune it down an notch." I retorted.
"Then it's decided. When summer starts we'll be going to the beach." I said.
"Then we should buy some new swimsuits for the occasion then." Nakano says.
"That's a great idea my old one is getting a bit tighter." says Matsuyama.
"Girls in swimsuits. That will be bliss." says Taki.
"Try not to get too excited." I said.
The beach, that's a classic place to make more memories with my friends. I think when we come back it be the most memorable summer we all will ever have. It's going to be fun I can't wait.
