My eyes jolted open. I jump out of bed gleefully. I go over to my desk to check my notebook.
Days til we hang out:
5 4! 3? 2!? 1!!!!!! TODAY!
2 days until left until our... outing. I'm not sure what to call it though. Well that's not the most important part! It's actually happening! After putting on my clothes and eating I head to school. I skip there humming.
I get over to the school entrance to see my friends. Along with Yuta and his two friends chatting off in a corner. I...can't...help but... starrreeeeee! I wish I were over there with them... Just chatting away!
"Sara, staring at them won't change a thing!"
"Wha- I'm not staring?!"
"You clearly are!"
Tamara comes over and drags me away. Nooooo! My fantasy... She could've been nicer about it at least! She's always looking out for me, even when I don't want her to. Bringing me back to our group. Just to scold me as usual...
"Why don't you just go over there already!?"
"You know why! I'll just make a fool of myself..."
I've said it so many times now that it should be burnt into their brains and they should be tired of it! But...But they just keep persisting! It's almost as if they want me to suffer... Yume joins the weekly harassment as-well
"You've already talked to him plenty of times and he's never been bothered so far right? You're only holding yourself back at this point."
"You know what? We're going out tomorrow night to get your mind relaxed before the big day!"
I wanted to say no, but I knew she was probably right.
How do they all look so excited despite us going out almost every week... Though Yume's face becomes one of a puzzled look.
"Did you ever pick out any clothes for the event?"
"Of course! I wouldn't have forgotten!"
Hahahahaha... I totally forgot. Tamara gives me a stare. She probably knows I'm lying.
"Alright... That's a step in the right direction! Knowing you would have forgotten, but I guess it's really important to you!"
She believed me?! I break out into a cold sweat worried that someone might realize. Thankfully, bell rings to finally get me out of that awkward moment. I rush out of that situation and promise myself to go shopping right after school ends.
My time arrives to go shopping not too long after! My friends question where I'm heading after school. I tell them I'm going to study! On a day like this pfff yeah right! I go over to the shops and begin my quest to find the perfect clothes!
I look and look and look! Only to have no idea which shop want to enter... Even after an hour it's like I haven't even moved! I never thought myself as a very fashion centrist person. And yet... I let out a sigh.
I turn around to see long silver hair? She looks familiar.
"It really is you!"
I'm still stunned for a moment. She comes up to me inspecting me from all angles. Impressed by me.
Ahhhhh. It's one of Yuta's friends?!
I finally realize and jump back from her out in shock she knows me. She isn't too happy about me jumping away.
"Awww... I didn't get to finish inspecting you!~"
Like I care!
"How- How do you know me?!"
"Huh~? It's not that hard to recognize you."
"Yeppers! You're always around Yu aren't you?"
She tilts her head curious of my response. She's talking too fast, my head is spinning.
"I'm not always around him!"
"Hmmm, Well you're around him when I'm there!"
"I know you like him and all, but JEEZ is it always something when you to get together~"
"I don't like him!"
I catch myself trying to go her pace only to get my words and thoughts all scrambled.
Why... Why is she so hard to understand?! I start tearing up. Not knowing how to rectify any of it.
"Ok, Ok I may have went a bit overboard. Do you want some help? Name's Eva by the way!"
"Why would I need help?"
"Well let's see... You've been looking for clothes for this coming Sunday right?"
"And to top that off it's for Yu, and I'm his close friend pf his meaning, I probably know exactly what he would love. Am I wrong?"
How does she know so much...?
"Oh and you-"
"Ok I get it you can help me!"
With a glint in her eye, and a smile on her face, she latches her arm on mine and yells out!
"Then what are we waitin' for?! Let's get goin'!"
"Waiiiiit! Do you even have a plan?"
Ah. I'm going to be a mess when I come out of this aren't I?
She looks around as if she was looking for one very specific store.
"There we are!"
We go in and begin looking around. It's a small store compared to the many I was looking at. Despite that there is rows upon rows of clothes all for different shapes and sizes. It's simply astonishing. It's Alice in clothing store! Except I'm Alice.
After finally processing all of what happened, I realize the situation I am in. I could be asking so many questions right now! What was I thinking trying to deny her help?! Sara hurts herself in confusion.
"You have any questions? Here's yu's contact info by way."
Is she reading my mind?! I guess it's pretty easy to predict what I wanted anyways... She hands me a piece of paper. I don't mind it as I have so many questions I wanted to ask! There was his favorite food, and the music he listens to, and the game he plays!
Ah- I feel like I'm forgetting something... Oh right!
"What type of clothes does he find nice?"
"Hmmm... Well if it looks like you tried that should be enough!"
"What?! That's so simple..."
"Were you expecting something difficult? I will say he has his qualities,but I wouldn't expect too much from a fool like him. Ah- There it is!~"
She pulls out a simple white dress from the rows of clothing. I'm still not the best about fashion, but...
"Would he like something... So simple?"
"He doesn't know a thing about fashion. You should've seen him when him and his girlfriend broke up. The outfit he was wearing was... Depressing to say the least."
Ah- I should've expected for someone as high on life as he is. Wait?!
"You were there?"
"It was when we first met actually!"
"I wanna hear about that!"
"I'm sure Yu wouldn't mind, and if he does I don't care!"
So, Aron and I were sitting in the cafe, flirting as usual.
- We weren't.
You're not even here, Get out! Anyways...
Everything happened so suddenly she had gotten up after yelling at him and walked away. Leaving him alone while everyone was looking in his direction. Aron sighs.
"Dating is harsh."
"Are we just supposed to watch this?"
"I mean, I was about to get up and leave."
I felt bad for him, ya know? I didn't want to leave him to sulk in his own misery so I did what only I could do... Laugh.
I laughed so hard at him. Aron began to panic.
"Eva did you just loose a gear or two in that head of yours?!"
Yu didn't seem to take it so well. Since he had been rejected and all like 5 seconds ago. He came over to us with all the fury and might one could have after losing something he cared about so dearly.
"What are you laughing about."
"Are you kidding me?! You sound like you're four!"
I laugh even harder.
"I'm so sorry that this idiot is bothering you, we'll leave you-"
"No, No she's right. I'm acting like a child. She can laugh all she wants..."
"Oh great look what you did Eva now he's acting just as insane as you!"
I'm honestly surprised he took that so well. I was more so expecting a KABOOM of sorts. But that never occurred. He just sat there and accepted his fate. I didn't like that. Not one bit.
I stopped laughing.
"What the hell? So you're giving up just like that?"
"Huh, What other choice do I have...? "
"Anything other than giving up!?"
He starts to get a bit agitated.
"What do you want me to do, go after her?! She clearly wants me to give up!"
"I don't care bout her. I meant you."
He is stunned for a moment confused of what I meant. To give him credit it's not easy to understand especially after what he just went through.
"Your mind isn't something you can just toss away after one failure. So stop acting like it is!"
"What do you want me to do?"
"I want you to scold me!"
Both Aron and Yu are shocked at my response.
"Continue to have that spark, don't just let it run out here! Wasn't me laughing at you frustrating?! So let it out and onto me!"
Yu's eyes widened. A glint comes into his eyes.
"Master, please teach me more!"
I get a smirk on my face and with my pride. I step on the chair pounding on my chest. My hair flowing in the wind. As everyone looked at me with such confidence.
- Shut up we get the point.
My Story, My Place!
"Follow me and we can take over the world together!"
"Ah- there I go."
I drop unconscious into his love, tender, soft, wonder, vampire arms!
- Can't you just make this normal
Can't YOU stop inserting yourself into my story time?! Jeez.
I can't see anything, but I can hear the rest of their conversation.
"Master, are you ok?!"
"She'll be fine. Her name is Eva by the way and I'm Aron."
"...Will we ever meet again?"
"I'm sure we will."
He begins to walk away. Yu calls out to him.
"Thanks... I really needed that."
"You're welcome. Just stay out of trouble or I'll have to deal with them. Unwillingly...
I had a feeling he was looking down at me.
And with that, history had been made!
She's insane. Smart, but insane. That's the only word that really and truly fit how I felt about her in that moment.
"That doesn't even sound real..."
"Oh I can promise you that was 100% real! Without us the Yu, you know and love today would probably not exist."
"Thanks, I guess..."
I'm astonished how much they impacted his life. Though I may not be able to believe it or see it, I think she's telling the truth. She really is something. She's pretty cool...if you ignore how psychotic she sounds at times.
"Here, carry these!"
She hands me a pile of clothes and we head over to pay for them. She pulls out her card. While I'm stuck with the clothes.
"Alright put them right here!"
I drop them onto the table. She pays for it all before I can even take out my card.
"Wait, why did you pay for it?"
"Think of it as a thank you."
What did that mean...?
"Anyways, I'm off I have to go pester Aron a ton more! Hopefully everything works out with you and Yu!"
With that she had left as fast as she came. Well at least I have my clothes... And Yu's contact info??? Maybe she slipped it into my pocket or she was just too fast for me to realize what had just happened...
When I got back home I plopped back into my bed and stared at my phone.
"Should I send something or is it too late...?"
I stuff my face into my pillow. Peeking over it to see if anything might pop up. The only issue is that he doesn't even has my contact info... I'm sitting there anticipating nothing. That is until a message pops up on my phone. It's from Yu?!
- Hey Sara! What time do you want to meet up on Sunday? (+o+)?
- ...Is that apart of a foreign language? (x_x)
- ...What is it? (OxO)
- Nothing... Let's meet up at 1!
I cover my face with my pillow. Excited for what sunday will bring!
(Continued in part 2?!)
[Hey all, Bert Here! I'm still recovering from a cold so it's going to take a bit longer than usual to finish this up! Totally not because I wanted to make it much longer, but decided to waste 3 days doing absolutely nothing. Anyways I hope you're having a good start to the week and I'll try and go ahead and work hard for the rest of the week! See ya~]
