Chapter 9:

Revenge of The Tomoko

I’m in love with a Chinese Nationalist

I ran back to our classroom in order to find Tomoko but that was probably the biggest mistake I could have made. Both Lei Mei and Sawa were in the class. The moment I opened the door the entire room stood still.

Thanks to this silence, it made it much more awkward for me to do anything but this has to end. The longer it keeps going the worse it will be for me and the more it will spread around the school.

“Tomoko. Can we go out and talk?” I had no choice but to speak out.

The entire room was staring at me, including Lei Mei and Sawa. However, neither of them actually seemed bothered. Lei Mei isn’t the type to care anyway but Sawa? Has she just fully given up on me? She kept avoiding eye contact with me.

“Sure babes. Keep yourself under control though, we are still in school~”

Why… Why would she do that? I should have known interacting with her again would only cause me problems.

I stepped outside with Tomoko. She must be proud of herself because she has the biggest smile she ever had. Seeing her this happy is enraging, considering the current events.

“Why are you doing this?”

“Doing what? Taji what's wrong?”

“You know exactly what's wrong. Don’t play stupid.”

“If I knew I wouldn’t be asking, duh. So explain what’s wrong babes.”

“Everything. Literally. Every single thing, that you have done in the past 24hrs. Each and every little bit.”

“I haven’t done anything wrong!”

“Tomoko, I really had enough. Firstly, what did you put into my drink last night.”

“Nothing, it was just a normal glass of apple juice.”

“If it was I wouldn’t be bringing this up, I noticed it wasn’t, you’re not getting away with this anymore.”

“Taji, you’re going insane. Are you sure you had enough sleep? I’ll take you to the infirmary.

“No. I’m perfectly fine. You’re the one causing issues.”

“Taji, look at me, you’re not fine, you don’t even know where you are.”

Tomoko held my face with both her hands. What is going on… am I the one who’s insane? Or is Tomoko trying to play mind tricks on me again? I really don’t understand anymore. I wanted to understand people better but all this is nothing but a complete mess. Everyone is illogical.

“Whatever, I’m done with you. I don’t want anything to do with you anymore.”

I don’t even have the energy to stay here anymore today. I would go home but my parents would probably be mad. The infirmary room does sound like a good choice, thought going there would only prove Tomoko right. Will have to find a way to go there without getting noticed.

Kingo was still up on the roof, I might as well go there and wait a bit before moving. As expected, he was still waiting on the rooftop.

“Kingo! I’m back.”

“Hi back. What did you go do?”

“Shut up. I went to talk to Tomoko. The entire thing isn’t real.”

“So you’re saying I can still hit? I mean that’s great, so you mean she was just setting you up?”

“Why would you want anything to do with Tomoko and yes she set this up, she put me to sleep and took pictures while I was out cold.”

“So you did stay with her, in the same bed, side by side, skin touching each other?”

“Kingo, relax bud. She’s just my ex.”

“EX??? We have known each other for I don't know how many years and you never told me this?”

“Save it for another day, I had enough of Tomoko.”

“Okay, man. I respect you more though.”

“Thanks… I guess. I’m gonna spend most of my time in the infirmary today, I don’t want to be around Tomoko at this point.”

“I got you, I’ll keep her distracted all day.”

“Have fun with that Kingo. I’ll see you around.”

Just like that, I was left alone. Now that Kingo is out hunting for Tomoko, I won’t have to worry about either of them. Hopefully, Kingo tries to get rid of the lie that she sent out as well. I made my way over to the infirmary, I peeked inside first to check there was no one there.

I shut the door after I walked in and hid on a bed at the far end of the room out of sight.

“Tajiiiii, did you really think that you would be able to hide from me?” Tomoko crept out from under the bed.

“What the hell are you doing here??” I accidentally screamed out in fear. I didn't expect her to be under the bed.

“I was waiting for you! I knew you would come here.” She climbed onto the bed and sat on top of my legs.

“Why are you doing this?”

“Hmmm, I wish I could tell you but you not knowing makes things more fun. So I’ll keep it like this, hehe. Now stay quiet and let it happen.”

“Let what happen? Not telling me what?”

“Shhh. Shhh. Shhh, it won't hurt Taji, I know this is your first time.”

“Huh? First time? What are you talking about?”

“Don’t fret over it. It will be enjoyable.”

I don’t understand what she is talking about anymore. I need to get out of here, Tomoko has gone insane.

My attempts to escape haven't been successful before, so I doubt I will make it far, however, this is part of the struggle I must overcome to become better. I need to become better, in order to be the perfect person for Lei Mei.

“Taji, you’re as hard as a brick.”

“Shut up, can you get off?”

“I can’t now, it’s too late.”

What does she mean by that? Why can’t I just meet someone normal for once? Every time something happens, it happens because of one of these weirdos.

All of a sudden Tomoko laid down on me and started tongue kissing me. At that moment, the infirmary door opened. Did I not lock it? It was hard to see who it was when Tomoko was pinning me down.

“Tomoko? Are you here?” a voice called out from the doorway. The oddly recognisable voice drew closer and closer as they approached us.

I wanted to get Tomoko off me but time was running out. Step by step my body started to feel tenser, doesn’t matter who it is anymore, just being seen in such a position by anyone is bad enough.

“Tomoko?” The voice came from just outside the curtains.

Tomoko didn’t react to her name being called out as if she wants to get caught by that person.

The curtain had finally opened. My life is about to come to an end. I think it’s time to give up.
