A/N: Hey its Friday the 13th. Cool, I just noticed that...
And my B-Day's comin' up on the 16th... oh yeah...
Anyway, I'm not even going to lie when I say: The reason why I haven't updated is because I was too lazy... I'm just a lazy person...
On with the story...
DISCLAIMER: I don't own vocaloid!
When the bell rang, the class rushed out of the room. Gumi caught up with me and we both walked through the hall. I was given some nasty looks. People made comments under their breaths. But I have ears. I tried to ignore them anyway.
I turned to Gumi. "When was the last time you saw Rin?"
She closed her eyes and hummed softly, turning to remember. "Oh!" Gumi's eyes flashed open and she snapped her fingers. "Saturday night. We were both out shopping until eight."
Saturday night? I found Rin sleeping on my couch Sunday morning.
"Did she have a black eye? Was she a little depressed?" I questioned.
Gumi stopped to face me, her face puzzled and scared. "Woah. Why would she have a black eye?"
I told her what happened yesterday. Gumi's expression didn't change until I was finished. Now she was more confused than afraid. But she didn't say anything. We continued down the hall in silence. She was probably thinking.
When we stepped outside, I thought to myself, She couldn't be at home because she didn't want people to see her face, she has make-up. I could barely tell that she had a black eye...
It's possible that she could've gotten hurt again. Even though she said her dad was just drunk, I don't believe that.
"I just hope that's not the case..." I murmured.
"What?" Gumi asked.
"Nothing," I simply said.
"No, seriously. What's up?"
I sighed. "I was just thinking: what if her dad hurt her again?" I answered.
"God, I hope not," she commented.
"I'd never be able to forgive him." Gumi smirked at that and I rolled my eyes.
We stopped the conversation there. I noticed more eyes staring at me and heard my name being mentioned a lot. They all had the wrong idea. I wasn't cheating on Rin.
Gumi must have saw me react to them because she nudged me and whispered, "Just ignore them. They'll find out sooner or later."
Whatever. It was making me feel bad when I didn't do anything wrong. If only the person that took the picture was listening to the Neru and I yesterday and not just watching us.
I took a deep breath as we turned the corner to Rin's neighborhood. She was the third house on the left. I hesitatly knocked on the door. No answer. I knocked again. Nothing. Either she wasn't answering the door or no one was home.
Gumi opened the door. "Hey, the door is unlocked." I facepalmed.
"Wait, can we even walk in?" I asked. "That's like breaking into someones home!"
She frowned. "Just go," she commanded.
We quietly walked in the house and she closed the door behind her. There was no noise. It sounded almost completely empty. The only thing I could hear was our footsteps on the wood floor.
Once I established that it was really quiet, I took in the interior design. It looked... pretty normal. It was two stories and there wasn't too much unnecessary decorations lying around, unlike my house.
Gumi tapped my shoulder and motioned me over to the stairs. Good thing they were carpet stairs or we would've made a lot of noise.
She stopped at, I think, Rin's room and told me not to talk. I nodded and we went inside.
Rin was sitting down on the floor, back to the bed, knees to her chest, forehead on her knees, and arms hugging her legs. There was quiet sobbing coming from her.
I ran to her, bent down in front of her, and gave her a hug. She returned it and cried into my shoulder. I couldn't stand seeing her sad.
We stayed in that position for a while. Even when she stopped crying, we stayed in that position. It was comfortable. I didn't want to let go.
Once she let go, I mentally sighed. She rubbed her red eyes and apologized for making me see her like that. Gumi handed her a washcloth. I stood back up and stepped back.
When Rin finished cleaning herself up, Gumi started throwing questions at her. "Are you okay? Do you need anything else? What happened?"
Rin shook her head. "No, I'm fine." Gumi nodded and Rin continued, "Gumi, I don't think I told you about my dad."
"Len already explained to me what happened."
"Oh, well, he did it again and um..." she stopped there and rolled up her right sleeve of her long-sleeved shirt. On the skin above her tricep muscle was a burn about five inches long. "And he said.. some things," she said and looked like she was about to cry again.
What did her dad say? Rin doesn't look like a person that cries a lot. But I didn't want to ask something so personally.
I stared at the burn in horror. Oh my god. "And you're telling me that he was drunk again?" She nodded and looked at her feet.
"When did he do this?"
"This morning." I took several deep breathes before grabbing Rin's wrist and dragging her through the hall.
"Hey! Where are we going?" she asked but didn't try to get out of my grip.
"To my house," I answered.
I stopped, turned around, and repeated, "Why? Because you are getting hurt by your own father! Did you not notice that he becomes violent when he's drunk? And he's drunk a lot? You can't stay here!"
Rin paused. "But- "
"No, Rin," I said calmly. "It's not safe here. You're staying with Meiko and I." In the corner of my eye, I saw Gumi wiggling her eyebrows. I blushed a little at what I said.
Rin didn't reply so I continued to drag her out of the house after telling Gumi to pack some of her stuff. I let go of her hand once we got outside. We walked slowly so Gumi could follow us when she finished.
It was silent for a while, but then Rin said softly, "You don't have to do this..."
"Yes I do."
"What if he chokes you and no on is there to help you? You can't hide that. You can't put make-up on that. What if- "
"What if," she said.
I sighed. "You just don't believe anything until it happens- With you dad, anyway... I thought you were supposed to call me if something was up."
She didn't say anything more. Gumi ran up to us after about ten minutes. Now you can guess how slow we were walking.
When we arrived at my house, it was Gumi's turn to exclaim at how awesome my mansion was. I shrugged and told her how my parents owned L&L's.
Meiko came out of the kitchen at the sound of a new voice in the house. They introduced themselves and Gumi mumbled about how she wish she had a maid.
While Gumi went around examining my house, Meiko greeted Rin and I. When she noticed Rin was holding a bag, she raised her eyebrow at me.
"Rin is staying here with us for a while," I explained. Meiko stared at me as if to give me a message about something, but I couldn't read it.
Then Meiko took her bag and Rin followed her up to a guest room. Gumi and I went into the kitchen for a snack. Naturally, I took a banana. Gumi, surprisingly, took a bag a carrots and started munching on them like it was a bag of doritos. But I didn't question it.
Meiko came back in the kitchen, and it was then that I noticed how many friends that are girls I had and no friends that are guys. I mean, I had plenty of guy acquaintances, but no close friends...
After Gumi cleaned my refrigerator of carrots, she said she had to go. Once she left, Meiko sighed. "Well, I'm going to the grocery store to buy more oranges, carrots, and sake." Of course. I smiled as she left... leaving Rin and I... alone...
A/N: Alrighty, I'm done with that...
Bad way to end a chapter, I know. I'm terrible at it, as you can see...
I don't really like this chapter... don't know why... I don't have a problem if you feel the same way...
I didn't add what kind of burn she had because I don't know what the different burn degrees look like and I was too afraid to look it up on google images. They got some nasty stuff there... plus I'm eating right now...
