Kat sat in chemistry honors class and listened to the dull, slurring,
almost drunk, sound of her teacher. No matter how hard she tried she could
not stay focused. He had a way of making you find interest in something as
simple as an outlet in the wall. Also the way he closed his eyes when he
talked could get on your nerves. But when she thought about it, the girl on
the morning announcements was so annoying you wanted to jump in the T.V.
and strangle her. Anyways, she once again trailed off from her notes and
started writing a fan fic on Mahou Tsukai Tai which does not belong to her,
but the story does and the title is obviously the title of a famous song
which does not belong to her either..
99 Red Balloons
Aburatsubo stared at his Takeo-kun, snot bubble rising and falling from his
nose, head resting on his desk.
"Kawaii," Aya-chan whispered to himself.
He continued to watch him with attentive eyes. Unfortunately the teacher
saw this and noticed Takeo was sleeping too.
"Mr. Takakura! Would you please tell me a synopses of what I just
explained!" the teacher exclaimed.
Takeo's snot bubble popped and his head rose.
"Wha?" he said sleepily rubbing his eyes.
"Outside Mr. Takakura. The buckets are already filled." He pointed outside.
Takeo shuffled out the classroom door and closed it behind him.
Aburatsubo's happy bubble burst. He could have stared at Takeo all class
long and he would still have understood the lesson while Takeo wouldn't
have learned anything. Now the same thing will happen except his Takeo is
outside instead of inside.
Takeo's arms hung at his side, too weak to hold up the buckets
perpendicular to his body. He yawned and looked up and down the hallway.
Last night he was trying to decode a new spell and didn't get a once of
sleep. He started nodding and knowing that he was going to fall on his face
if he didn't do something, and that the teacher was going to make him stand
out there all class, he quietly put down the buckets and shuffled off to
the club room to sleep.
Aburatsubo had gotten a nervous tic in his leg waiting for the bell to ring
so he could walk home with Takeo-kun and then teach him what they learned
The bell rang and he shot out the door coming to a sliding halt. Takeo
wasn't there, just two buckets of cold, steel colored, water. His eyes got
chibi and watery.
"Takeo-kun didn't *sniff * didn't *sniff * wait for me?" he wailed. "Wait,
the clubroom!" And with that he shot off in the direction of the clubroom.
He came to a skidded halt in front of the larger growing manga clubroom and
the reducing magic clubroom. He slid open the door and Takeo was sleeping
on the floor, head propped on his book bag. Aburatsubo quietly tiptoed over
like a cat and laid down next to him. He curled up to him and started
Sae opened the door and Aburatsubo's purring stopped.
"Great just my luck. I finally get him all to myself and she walks in." He
thought to himself.
Takeo woke up to a cat-like faced Aburatsubo lying next to him. Startled,
he quickly rose. Then he saw Sawanaguchi in the doorway.
"Sa-Sa-Sawanaguchi!" he stuttered. "Is it time for club already?" He
scratched the back of his head.
Aburatsubo started rubbing against Takeo's leg like a cat.
"Stop that!" Takeo yelled.
Aya-chan pounced on him, knocking him over, and trying to get Sae to leave.
He then laid across Takeo's stomach. Takeo pushed him off and stood up.
"As I was saying, come on in Sawanaguchi." Takeo managed to get out before
being attacked by Aburatsubo again.
Sae left to go look for Nanaka and leave them to their business.
"Why should I intrude if they're having fun?" she thought to herself. "I'll
just find Nanaka and then go back, they should be done by then."
As she rounded a corner she bumped right into Nanaka, sending them both
"Ow! Sae! Watch where you're going!"
"Sorry!" she said as she helped Nanaka up.
"Fine, just learn not to be so clumsy." Nanaka replied as she patted
herself. "Hey isn't that Aburatsubo?" She asked pointing to a maroon hair
colored boy walking in the opposite direction of the clubroom.
Sae turned around just in time to catch a glimpse of his back disappear
down another hallway.
"Wonder what happened to him? He was just in the clubroom." Sae said.
They went to the clubroom and slid open the door. Takeo was pulling his
shirt back down when they walked in.
"Takakura, what happened to Aburatsubo?" Sae questioned.
"He tried to take my shirt off."
"Yeah and. wouldn't that make him happy?" Nanaka retorted.
"So I slapped him."
So what'd you think? Any good? Next chapter will be angsty. Much angst.
