A Azumanga Daioh fanfic
Hearing the familiar buzz of the alarm clock, Bironu threw off his covers and climbed off the bed and wandered into the bathroom, and showered. Afterwards, he got out, and looked at the mirror: His black hair seemed to frizz out of control, however his eyes trailed from the hair to his ears, standing proudly on his head, he wiggled the right one, then the left. "Why did my father do this to me?" He asked himself, trying to make sense of his father's madness, but instead he walked out of the bathroom, and made this way back into his room and began changing into school clothes. After he was finished, he grabbed his hat sitting on top of a night-light, and put it on his head, pushing his ears down flat onto his head, and descended the stairs.
Finding Norton at the end of the stair, Bironu bent down and petted him, "don't worry Norton, I will be back after school." In response Norton simply meowed and went on his way into the living room, "Take care of the house while I'm gone." Bironu echoed into the other room and grabbed his morning meal: a chocolate muffin.
Walking down the street, he watched as people walked past, going on their way, Bironu was aimlessly walking, and day dreaming, "Hey Bironu!" Suddenly a child's voice echoed over the air, he stopped and turned around to see Chiyo-chan. "Oh…hey Chiyo-chan… how are you?" She nodded happily, her pigtails bouncing along, "I'm doing wonderful, how about you?" "I'm doing all right." He responded, waiting for her to catch up, after a few minutes of talking, Chiyo-chan spoke up, "Hey Bironu, did you study for the test today?" He stopped dead in his tracks. "We have a test today?" He asked, Chiyo-chan nodded "yes, in English, did you study for it?" Bironu looked the other way, "uh…no. I spent my time talking to my mother…" She tilted her head and smiled, "its good to talk to your parents, since they like to listen about your day…" With that, Chiyo-chan dashed towards school, "Sorry I can't walk the rest of the way with you, I've got to help Osaka study, since I told her I would. See you later!" With a wave, Chiyo-chan left, leaving Bironu with his thoughts.
Crossing the street towards the school, Bironu wandered slowly towards school, "Verbs are action words…Nouns are places and things…" he was recalling what he had been taught in class, he passed through the gates to the school ground, and heard the ringing of the school bell, however it did not phase him, "Ms. Yukari will probably be late today, since its test day…" Bironu reassured himself, and maintained his slow pace up and into the building, and finding his homeroom, he quietly opened the door.
It was a nightmare. Ms. Yukari was on time, and she looked at Bironu with daggers and pointed to his desk. He quietly moved towards his seat, and pulled out a pencil, and a test appeared in front of him, handed to him by Ms. Yukari with an evil grin. Jotting his name on the paper, Bironu quickly looked over the test, trying to find questions with easy answers, but there were none. Working through each question, he finally set down this pencil, "All right, pass your papers forward." Ms. Yukari announced, and went to reach column, collecting the papers as she went, and set them down on her desk, "All right class…Lets open our books to chapter 2 page 34…"
"Bironu! How did you do on you test?" Chiyo-chan's cheery voice rang in Bironu's ears. Lifting his head from his desk, he looked at her, "I don't know how I did…I haven't even looked at it." Suddenly a shadow came across both Bironu and Chiyo-chan in the form of Osaka, "Aw…don't worry Bironu, even though you're a foreigner and you should know all 'bout this English stuff anyway…" Chiyo looked at Osaka in a daze, "I don't think that helps Osaka…" then turned to Bironu, "can I take a look at your result?" He moved the paper from under his arms and turned to face the window, "Uh…Bironu…" Chiyo-chan started, "You didn't do a bad job at all…" turning his attention from the window to the sheet of paper she was holding up showing a 74. However there was a little note written in red: Don't let your grades slip! Bironu took the paper from Chiyo-chan, "maybe you should get a tutor…" she said.
He nodded his head, "yea that sounds like a good idea…can you help me Chiyo?" She shook her head, "Oh no, its kind of hard already tutoring Osaka…" He nodded understanding, and she looked around the room and her eyes lit up. "Hold on Bironu…" with that, Chiyo disappeared into the mess of students, and she came around again, with a smile on her face, "I found your tutor." Pointing through the crowds towards Ms. Sakaki, starring out the window. "Ms. Sakaki?" he asked, dumbstruck, Chiyo-chan nodded, "yep I asked her and she said yes." Bironu looked across the room back to Ms. Sakaki, "and it would be the perfect time to apologize for what happened the other day!" He thought to himself and nodded in approval, "thanks a lot Chiyo-chan, you're a big help."
