3 – D gets a transfer student and it's a girl? What is Naos secret and why does she seem to be afraid of boys? Well, the guys are determined to find out and maybe they'll even come to accept her as a classmate. Or maybe more than that?
The New Classmate Is...A GIRL?
Nervously she stroke the skirt of her new school uniform. It was not a very cute outfit and she was a little ashamed to wear the name of this school on her jacket.
„Don't worry, it'll be okay", the woman in front of her told her with a creepy smile on her face, „the guys aren't as bad as they look. They might be a little idiotic and crude, but deep inside they are very good boys."
The girl just nodded her head, but was not so sure if she could trust the words of this weird woman. And she was queer indeed! She did not seem like someone you would expect to be a teacher. She was more than energetic and talked with a loud voice. Her hair was in two pigtails (she must already be a older than thirty! How does she have the nerve to look so childish?) and wore big glasses, which seemed already outdated. But the most odd thing was probably the ugly red tracksuit she wore. Until now she never stopped blabbering for once and even the vice principal of this school seemed to be a little tired of her ranting.
„Yamaguchi – sensei, I would like you to keep an eye on this new student", he told her some minutes ago, when they were introduced, „for you know as well of the circumstances concerning your class. Don't let her get involved with the boys."
He seemed to be uneasy to put the girl into class 3D, but there was no other place for her, because she transferred almost at the end of the term. Nobody except for the principle knew about the reasons for this girl joining an all – boys – school. It was like throwing a sheep into a pack of wolfs and the vice principle, who would not stand another uproar at his school, was not sure how to deal with such a difficult situation. But it was not his place to disobey the principle. So he watched Yamaguchi leaving with this innocent girl and prayed that she was still alright in the afternoon and ready to resign immediately after expiring her new class for one day.
The girl was very uneasy as well. Her decision was almost madness, but she told herself that she had just endure it for a little while. Just until she got her graduation papers. Her new teacher, although she was weird, seemed to be nice. And as for the boys...she would just ignore them as good as she could. She was not used to be around boys and was seriously afraid of them.
"We're here", Yamaguchi – sensei piped happily.
Sweating the girl stared at the door. They were in an extra building. Here was no other class than this. It looked as if there was a reason for this class to be isolated from the others. Behind the door there were loud noises and male voices screaming and shouting. She started shaking when she looked at the graffiti on the walls.
"Beware", "School sucks" and many inappropriate drawings...the girl gulped. She did not want to know what was behind the door, but before she could think about running away, the teacher opened the door and dragged her inside.
Class 3D was in a big uproar. The reason were the news, which were brought to them just after entering their class room. Tanaka Masei, the guy who knew everything that happened in school, came bursting in with an agitated face:
"Ne, did you hear it?"
"Hear about what", asked Kamiya Shunsuke, who always was interested in scoops.
Tanaka smiled mysteriously and waited until everyone gathered around him. He was the kind of guy who loved to be the center of attention:
"I just heard something incredible. There's going to be one more guy in our class."
"A transfer? Really?", Kuraki Satoru was really excited and was soon joined by the other guys who wanted to know more about it.
"Sorry, but that's all I know so far", Tanaka said apologetically and seemed to be very much disappointed that no one was interested in him anymore.
"I wonder why he's coming now. I mean in a few month we'll graduate", Ichimura Rikiya, who was called Ichi, scratched his chin.
"Well, doesn't matter. I'll hope he's good at fighting. I'm looking for a new opponent", nonchalantly Kazama Ren leaned back and put his shoes on his desk. His friends looked at him and grinned. That's what they were all hoping for. 3D needed a new strong guy.
"Hey, what do you thing, Yamato?", Honjo Kengo asked his friend. Ogata Yamato just shrugged his shoulders. He wasn't really interested in some new guy. Well, he wasn't really interested in anything at the moment.
They all went silent when the door flew open and Yamaguchi Kumiko, who they called lovingly Yankumi, walked into the class room. It looked like she wanted to drag someone with her, but this person was able to break free from the teachers grip. Yankumi was not even bothered by it, but just smiled at her class.
"Good morning, everyone", she said ernegetically as ever, "today I would like to introduce a transfer student to you. Don't be shy and come in, Katsuragi."
All eyes were turned to the door when the new student stepped in and even Yamato raised his head. Timidly a girl stumbled into the class room. The silence, which was there before, became even deeper. The eyes of the guys got rounder and some of them even dropped their jaws. Yankumi had never seen her students more surprised and shocked than in this moment. She smiled warmly at the girl, who looked as she wanted to run away and gripped her hand to prevent it.
"Guys, this is Katsuragi Nao. She will be your comrade until graduation. I hope you will be nice to her and treat her like your equal. And I will just say it once", when she slammed her hand on her asked everyone shrieked. Nao shook even more when she saw the angry stare of her teacher watching the guys.
"Don't try anything funny on her. She is the only girl on this school and I hope you'll protect her instead of eating her alive. Understand?"
Yankumi was so frightening that the boys could nothing do as nodding there heads.
"Good", Yankumi was back to her goofy self and acted like nothing happened, "so Katsuragi, please take this seat in front of the class.
Nao nodded again and walked timidly to the free chair. She could feel the boys still staring at her and looked consequently to the floor. She would not even look at them for she was much to scared. She knew from the beginning that it was nearly impossible for her to be around boys, but she did not expect this. The guys looked scary. They did not even wear their uniform in a proper way. And were their hairstyles even legal?
Now she knew why the vice principal was so uneasy with her being in this class. The guys were not normal. They were gangsters. Delinquents. Bad Guys.
With shaking hands she put her folder on the desk and tried to focus on the blackboard. But as soon as Yamaguchi – sensei started talking about a mathematics formula, the boys became loud again. Some of them, the ones next to hear, even starting asking her weird questions. She put her head between her shoulders and tried to ignore them.
"Ne, do you have a boyfriend?", this seemed to be the most important question for it was asked several times.
"Where do you come from?"
"Why did you come to an all – boys – school?"
"Do you have some female friends you can introduce to us?"
Nao noticed her eyes tearing up and shrieked when one of them even dared to touch her shoulder.
"Oi!", Yankumi shouted angrily, "stop chatting and start listening, will you?"
The boys did as they were told but could not help being more interested in the girl than in mathematics.
As soon as the bell rung, Nao raised from her place and rushed out of the room even forgetting to take her bag. The guys looked at each other in bewildermen.
"I don't know if she got a problem with us", Satoru said and looked a little angry.
"Of course she does", Yankumi told her students in a serious tone, "you guys were frightening her. Don't be so pushy. A girl needs time to get used to you."
"What do you mean?", Yamato kicked his desk and glared at his teacher angrily.
"Calm down, Ogata. I don't want to say your bad guys but think about it. Is the only girl at this school full of guys. She might feel a little uneasy at the moment but I'm sure she'll come to like this school if you show her your good sides."
"But still, I don't like her stucked up attitude", Kengo mumbled.
"But she sure is super cute", Shunsuke got a dreamy look on his face.
"Yes, cute", Yamato snorted, "but she'll bring a lot of trouble. Having a girl in class is no good."
"I feel the same way about this", Ren agreed although he was weak when it came to girls. He just felt that a girl in an all – boys – school would be troublesome for she would be pestered from all sides.
"Well, do what you like but please think about it for a little bit", Yankumi sighed and went out to eat her lunch.
In the meantime Nao has found a place where she could be all to herself. She was on the roof top of the old building and looking up to the bright sky. The sun stroke her bare skin and warmed her up inside. There was a loud grumbling sound.
She cursed herself for forgetting her bento in the class room, but she was to afraid to go back.
She sighed and put her face in her hands. There was no way that she would stand this until the end of the term. There was the possibility of dropping out of school but that was something that would not help her situation. She needed to find a good job to be able to take care for herself. She has always been a bright student and she hoped that she would be able to go to university even when she graduated from this low class school.
Therefore she needed to be strong and survive. She raised up and stepped to the edge of the building so she could see the boys running around happily on the school grounds. Fighting and enjoying themselves. Nao sighed again and stroke her thick black hair out of her face. She knew that she would never get used to this school nor come to like it, but she was determined to endure it to the end. And with this she went back to the class room just to be surrounded by a bunch of guys who wanted to know more about her.
When she said down at her desk again she could feel something staring at her from behind. But it felt somehow different. Carefully she turned around and saw one of the guys in the back glaring at her. Her heart skipped a beat and she quickly looked away. Did she do anything wrong? Why would he be angry at her?
She was sure that she had never seen him before. Nervously she buried herself even more in her desk and wished she could just disappear. But again this thought became surreal when Yamaguchi came back and exclaimed with a loud voice that there would be a test in the end of the week. All the boys started moaning. The rest of the lesson was like before. Yankumi tried to tell them what would be on the test but except for Nao nobody was willed to listen to her. Nao wondered how the teacher could take the ignorance of the boys. As for her she would have left the classroom in tears by now.
But Yamaguchi seemed to be different from other teachers. Nao still could not put her finger on it, but she had the feeling that the boys were much calmer than in other lessons.
So she was not much surprised when the boys got even louder as soon as a new teacher entered the classroom. He desperately tried to calm them down, but they were not even recognizing his mere existence. Nao felt very bad for the small bald guy who tried to teach them some English vocabulary.
The six guys in the back (Nao had the feeling that they were the leaders of the whole class) even started playing baseball and they were soon joined by the other guys.
Nao started to be very annoyed by their behavior, but she was much to shy and terrified as to say something. To not get hit by the ball she crawled under her desk and tried to remember some of the English sentences in her exercise book. Trying to forget her miserable situation and the tears, which were already floating in her eyes.
"Are you alright?"
Naos head bumped against the desk when a boys face appeared before her. He had reddish brown hair and an amiable smile on his lips. Nao was sure that he belonged to the group of the back guys. She stared at him in disbelief and he blushed slightly.
"I didn't want to surprise you", he said in a calm voice, "my name is Ichimura Rikiya, but everyone calls me just Ichi."
She slowly nodded her head, but was still unable to speak. She did not know why he suddenly approached her, but she could not help as to feel that he had no ill intentions.
"Where did you go during break?", he asked friendly.
"R-roof", she was surprised herself that she spoke to him. He smiled even wider at her:
"It's a great place, isn't it? You can see all over the campus. Did you like the view?"
"You forgot you lunch in the class room, didn't you? Did you buy something to eat?"
She shook her head.
"Wait", he rumbled in his jacket and pulled something out of his pocket, "take it. Being at a new school must be tiring. You should get something in your stomach."
Nao stared at the bonbon in her hand.
"Well, I have to go now or Kuro will make a homerun", he winked at her and was gone before she could thank him. Dumfounded she stared again at the bonbon. She could not believe what just happened. He was the first guy she actually talked to and was not afraid at all. He seemed to be a kind boy. A little more encouraged she opened the bonbon and put it in her mouth.
It tasted like strawberry. She loved strawberries. Maybe she would survive if there were more guys like him, even if she doubted it.
"Say, do you like this girl, Ichi?". Kuro put his arm around his friends shoulder. Ichi blushed and pushed him away:
"No I don't!"
"But we saw you, you know. Talking to her", Ren grinned cheekily. The three guys were on their ways home. It was not possible for them to not talk about Nao.
"I just think that Yankumi is right", said he slowly in a serious tone, "she needs time to warm up with us. Did you see how all the boys ogle her when she walks through the class room? I mean she seems to be a shy and innocent girl. Did you remember our attempt to get girlfriends on goukons? In the end all the girl ran away when they figured out where we came from. I think she's no different from them."
For a moment the other two boys were thinking about the words just said. They could not help but to agree with their friend. Ren gave Ichi a slap on the back:
"Well, that is why you're the sensitive one of us. Who could know more about a girls feelings than you?"
Ichis face went a bright red and he punched Ren in the face. But Ren just laughed and punched him back:
"We'll try to be nicer to her, 'kay?"
