The Future of Haruhi Suzumiya
"Kyon! Late, as usual! FIFTY TRILLION YEN FINE!"
"Oi, oi! That wasn't the original penalty!"
"Hm, then you're buying us lunch!"
It was a Sunday, just as any normal Sunday. Then again, "normal" isn't in the dictionary in this world, apparently. No, really, look it up. Normal to Haruhi is like "Polar Bears in the Sahara Desert… In space… Wearing top-hats…" But it's true: today was just a normal Sunday, just as any normal Sunday.
As per normal Sunday, we SOS-Brigade members were to meet at the usual spot, where Brigade Leader Haruhi Suzumiya would spout her usual nonsensical-mumbo-jumbo about how we're going film a movie, attend summer activities, or search for aliens, ESPERS, and time-travelers.
Those first two on the list of "things to do" isn't abnormal the least bit. However, I'm sure any average, Japanese-citizen would agree that hunting aliens, ESPERS and time-travelers is a little odd. Not to mention, I'm sure they'd admit to never once in their life meeting one. Heck, I'm sure the majority would deny their existence.
That's me: an average, Japanese citizen. My name is… well, people just call me Kyon. I, as an average, Japanese citizen, denied the existence of such beings. I may have been a believer in such things when I was younger, but when you're in high school, believing in said things makes you… weird...
Well, the truth is: aliens, ESPERS and time-travelers exist, and while I wouldn't want to admit it's true, I'm standing in the presence of the three now. Unknown to Haruhi, the other three Brigade members go as follows:
Yuki Nagato: Alien
Koizumi Itsuki: ESPER
Mikuru Asahina: Time-traveler
In Haruhi's eyes, those three members are nothing but average, Japanese citizens. I know the truth, though. Don't believe me; everybody is entitled to their own truths. Again, go ahead and don't believe me; I've seen the truth with my own eyes. For example:
Nagato once saved my life from an alien, like herself, who went out of control and ultimately tried assassinating me.
Koizumi brought me to a "Closed Space," where I witnessed him fight gigantic, blue monsters with his ESPER powers.
Mikuru dragged me through time to help a younger, middle school Haruhi Suzumiya write "alien symbols" on the school grounds. I've also met future, super-sexy-adult Mikuru. Don't tell present, super-adorable-teen Mikuru though. It's, well, something about destroying her future if I tell her… That could be bad.
Those are only few of the events I've experienced. Convinced? Well, if not, listen to my story I'm going to tell, for it will back up the fact that aliens, ESPERS and time-travelers all exist.
It was a Sunday, just as any normal Sunday. It was a sunny, warm, spring morning. I stood in front of Haruhi, Nagato, Koizumi, and Asahina-san. Haruhi was scolding me for being late as usual, but it didn't faze me. If getting a few extra minutes of sleep is a crime, you can go ahead and arrest me. At least all this "buying lunch for being late" nonsense is keeping our usual café in business. I wouldn't doubt the owner could go into retirement because of all the money I'm forced to spend there.
"Listen up, Brigade," Haruhi demanded, interrupting my thoughts. "As you all know, my first year of high school went by fast. No, it went by too fast. We've done a lot, but there are three things the SOS-Brigade has yet to accomplish… 1. Find alien, 2. Find ESPER, 3. Find time-traveler! I only have the rest of my second year and my senior year to find these beings and prove their existence, so our goal for today will be: HUNT DOWN AND CAPTURE AN ALIEN, ESPER AND TIME-TRAVELER!"
Her speech was… well… How do I put this? Un-motivational. No, it was the least bit motivational. At least when we were making the lame "battle maid from the future" movie, my Sundays were eventful. However, since I can't give away Nagato's, Koizumi's or Asahina's existence as said phenomena (or however you might put it), this Sunday will be very, very uneventful.
We departed; we searched; we failed. After the two groups, me and Haruhi; Koizumi and the others, regrouped for lunch, nobody reported any findings. I bet Koizumi and co. just sat on a bench, making fun of me for having to put up with Haruhi's antics. I looked at Koizumi, who sat next to me drinking a cup of warm tea. He winked at me, as if he knew what I was thinking. Creep, I thought to myself.
"I can't believe you guys didn't find anything worth reporting to me about…" Haruhi pouted.
"You don't think an alien, ESPER or time-traveler will just come out and tell you what they are, would you?" I tried to cheer her up, even if coming out and telling the truth is exactly what those three did to me.
"Kyon," Haruhi snapped with a bone-chilling tone, "You aren't making things any better for this situation!" I guess I didn't cheer her up. Luckily, she regained her usual composure (I say that loosely…) and started talking… again… "Who knows? Maybe, I'll get lucky and an alien, ESPER or time-traveler will confess their true identity to me!"
"Suzumiya," Koizumi finally spoke. "I'm an ESPER."
"Don't joke around like that, Idiot! This is a serious matter!" Haruhi, as you can tell, didn't believe the truth even though it was handed to her on a silver platter… no, gold platter… no, diamond platter…
Koizumi, again, looked at me and just shrugged his shoulders. My face remained straight. Creep…
Where's the proof that my three friends are indeed what I tell you they are? Don't worry; it all begins not long after the café we were eating lunch at. Even better: it all begins right after we ate lunch at that café.
Haruhi dismissed us and stormed off, apparently mad with her dull life. If only she knew what events occur when she wasn't looking…
"Kyon," said a voice from behind me.
I turned around. "Koizumi?" I said, finding him to be the one who spoke my name.
"Kyon, I need to talk to you…"
"Hm, can't this wait? I'd like to spend the rest of my day-off doing something actually eventful… I'm not in the mood to listen to your ESPER talk…"
"It can possibly wait, but I thought I should warn you… Go ahead with your day, if you wish. Don't say I didn't warn you," Koizumi said, winking after saying it.
"Okay, first off: that's the second time you've winked at me, so stop. Secondly: warn me about what?" I caved. "Go ahead; it's not like I'm actually planning on doing anything eventful anyways."
He looked around. "Not here…" He waved me to follow him, as if he couldn't say something like, "Follow me…" Whatever, though.
"Here's fine, Kyon." Koizumi stopped. He had leaded me to a park bench, where there was nobody in sight.
"With all that winking, I'm hoping you're not going to confess your love to me…" I joked.
"Is it that noticeable?"
"You just said something?"
"Oh, I was just kidding with you. I guess I still can't get you to laugh at my jokes…" Koizumi sighed. "Well, I guess I ought to tell you now…"
Yes, out with it. We're all waiting in anticipation-hell for what you about to say… Of course, I joke about this now, but then: it was no laughing matter, even if I laughed after I heard what he had to say.
He pushed his hair out of his eyes and began, "Do you remember when I told you to not trust Mikuru?"
I thought back. "Yea, I guess, but didn't you say you were only joking?"
"I did," he replied. "However, I actually wasn't joking. I was really looking for your reaction, just in case my theory came true."
"What is this 'theory?' Cut to the chase, Koizumi-kun," I demanded.
"Do you remember what I was 'joking' about then?"
"Yea, something like, 'Mikuru is trying to pull you away from Haruhi,' or some nonsense like that."
"Precisely! Good job remembering." Koizumi was smiling, but his smile soon faded. "I've proven that theory, Kyon… Mikuru is indeed trying to prevent you from getting close to Haruhi."
Like I said earlier: I laughed. In fact, it was more than a laugh. It was a full-hearted gut-laugh; one of those laughs that cause you to tear up. I regained composure. "Wait, so you're trying to tell me that Mikuru is actually trying to sabotage my friendship with Haruhi! A guy could only dream of being that lucky!" What can I say? Asahina-san is just too cute!
"Kyon quit it. I'm not kidding you. I want you to think about this. Isn't Haruhi always bullying Asahina? Think about the reasons why she starts bullying her. If you actually think about it, it's always when Asahina begins attracting your attention."
I was speechless. My laughter completely stopped. The creep was right. When I thought about it, whenever Asahina ever tried getting close to me, the moment was always ruined by a jealous Haruhi.
"Besides, remember what I told you. Haruhi chose you for the one to always be by her side. Here's my other theory: Your existence is a reality only to fulfill Suzumiya's need for somebody to stand by her. Simply: You were created to stand by her," Koizumi explained.
"So… you're saying that Haruhi 'created' me only so I could be her little puppet for life? That… sucks. What's wrong with Asahina trying to save me from that dark and gloomy path? I think Asahina would be a wonderful girl to spend the rest of my life with!" I obviously wasn't getting what he was saying.
Koizumi responded with, "No, you're not getting what I'm saying!" What did I just say? He continued, "I'm trying to imply that maybe Mikuru Asahina's role in all of this is to prevent you and Haruhi from ever spending your lives together…"
"Why would she want to do that?" I asked.
"I'm not sure, but it must have something to do with the future of this world. Perhaps the group she's a part of is attempting to change their future with a new one."
"Here's the problem, Koizumi-kun: If I was created solely for Haruhi, then why would Haruhi create somebody to prevent us from ever being together! Your logic sucks. I'm going home." I stood up from the bench. I looked back at Koizumi, who was still on the bench. "Besides," I began again. "I would love it if somebody as adorable as Asahina-san would try to get me to fall in love with them!" I finished on that line, and then stormed off back to my bicycle parked back at the café.
That night, I was laying on my bed, thinking to myself about what Koizumi had tried to explain to me. Why the hell would Haruhi allow something like that to happen? Koizumi, you idiot… You don't know what you're talking about… That's when I remembered Asahina telling me in her sweet voice something about that I should not trust Koizumi, and that she doesn't like him… Maybe… Just maybe, I continued thinking. Maybe Asahina is right. Perhaps Koizumi is trying to help Haruhi in sabotaging my relationship with Asahina-san! That… That bastard! If he ever gets a girlfriend, which probably would never happen since he's an IDIOT, I'm going to ruin HIS relationship!
I was lying on my bed for some time thinking about the whole ordeal. Why did it bug me so much? If I knew I was right… If I knew Asahina wasn't trying to ruin my friendship with Haruhi… why did I get so flustered over it? Well, I'd just save the rest of figuring the thing out for the next day. I eventually left what had happened behind and dozed off to sleep. As I said earlier: This was only the beginning of the entire ordeal. Why couldn't I just have believed Koizumi?
That night, I dreamed of Mikuru.
Author's Note: There you have it… a continuation of the Haruhi Suzumiya story… I'm sure there's a crap-load of peoples' ideas of more Haruhi, but I caved. I just had to write my own. Ever since the last episode of season two, where Koizumi tells Kyon to beware of Mikuru (sweet, adorable Mikuru…), I've had this story on my mind. You'll have to wait to find out what is actually ON my mind in the NEXT chapter ;DD By the way, as this happens to every story I ever write, I'll warn you now: I'll eventually get super-insanely busy with school and other stupid things of the like, and this fic will stop production TT-TT However, you can count on the fact that I'll come back to finish it! I do actually get so busy and crap, that I don't get time to actually work on my fics, so if you don't see updates for several months, don't get sad (like you actually would ;P), for I promise to update eventually.
So, yup. That's all I wanted to say! Write your reviews so I know what I'm doing wrong (or right?)! Since I'm making Kyon narrate the entire thing, I want to make it as close as possible to what actually might happen in the anime. Also, encouragement actually helps me strive to produce more chapters… Don't be afraid to criticize though, as criticism is the best form of flattery (Or… wait… That's imitation… Imitation is the best form of flattery. Don't imitate me, though… I'll have to kill you).
With that said, the Mikka Tororo was delicious. Therefore, farewell, everyone.
