Daydreaming Of You
And I loved them.
My eyes always yearned to see more of him. To touch more of him. To taste more of him. But can't. For he was untouchable. And he was unreachable. He was superior over me in ways I can never imagine. And I can't help but wonder if I will ever have the chance to make myself known to him.
Me, a lowly nerd in the lower classes not even had the slightest chance to talk to him. I blew on a stray wisp of auburn hair that decided to intrude on my musings. I sighed thoughtfully.
Will I ever get the chance?
"Class," the teacher said from the front, his voice booming. "Attention."
The class became silent.
"We'll be inspected by one of the upperclassmen of the senior year," I felt a tightening in my chest. "And our inspector would be… Mr. Syaoran Li."
My eyes widened and my breath hitched. My classmates of the female gender squealed in delight and glee while I—I thought my world had ended and that heaven opened its gates for my tortured soul.
My eyes wandered towards my friend's face, Tomoyo, who was smiling behind me. She giggled. "Isn't this exciting, Sakura-chan?" Her eyes sparkled. "Syaoran-kun is going to be the one to inspect us!"
I nodded my head.
Then it hit me. He was the one going to inspect us of which if he saw one promising student, who was beneath him, he will surely try to make that student one of the upperclassmen! My mind screamed.
This was my chance.
I need to make him notice me!
"Oh, Mr. Li, glad you're here," I whipped my head towards the front and landed upon a guy with intense amber eyes and brown hair. "You can seat at any vacant seat that you can see."
Syaoran nodded his head and looked around the classroom; a small smirk fleeted his features as he found a seat. He strutted towards the back, passing by giggling girls and not so happy boys. He neared my seat that was near the back and stopped. He sat down beside me.
"Lucky wench!" I heard the other girl's murmuring filled with loathing but I ignored them.
My heart beat faster.
I couldn't think.
I couldn't breathe.
I felt adrift, dizzy, and pliant.
But I wouldn't back down now. No! Because—because I was determined. And I was ready.
I tilted my head, my eyes pointed directly to Syaoran's face, and my breath caught. He… was… gorgeous. My eyes grew big and my mouth formed an oh! My mind was a complete and utter blank!
His deep amber eyes bore so much depth, so much passion, and I felt that it blew me away as he bent down the desk and wrote swiftly on a piece of parchment. His unkempt brown hair, messy yet alluring looked boyishly handsome on him, bounced on his forehead as he wrote. His muscles, tensing… his mouth, curved up lightly to form a small smile… his skin. Tanned…
I rested my head on the cold surface of my desk and felt my eyes flutter close. It opened a few moments later.
Syaoran looked at me and raised a brow. "Yes?" He whispered. "Are you okay, miss?"
My whole body was hyperventilating and I sweated nervously. My fist clenched and my cheeks flushed. Only one thought repeated continuously in my mind as he waited for me expectantly.
Syaoran Li is talking to me!
My surroundings were an utter blur as I looked around the room except him! Because I was scared. Scared that he might think of me as weird and a geek and a freak and—
"Sakura?" He murmured concernedly. "Are you okay?"
My jaw dropped.
He—he knows my name!
"Y-you… you know my name!" I muttered back, shocked. "H-how?"
He chuckled and turned his head towards the front, trying to listen to the teacher's instructions. "Does a person need a reason for everything?"
"Are you unable to answer a question other than a question?" I teased, giggling quietly. I froze. I—I giggled! Giggled, for heaven's sakes, which is strange for me!
He grinned. "Of course I can," he said nonchalantly.
I rolled my eyes and my mind couldn't process what was happening. Me—talking to the Syaoran Li—me! I inwardly giggled.
"Oh really now, Mr. Li?" I said tauntingly. "If that's the case then—"
I groaned aloud and waved my hand in the air, aimlessly. "Leave me alone," I muttered. Then, annoying giggling can be heard in the background as I heard that irritating voice again.
"I said, leave me alone!"
"Miss Kinomoto!" I heard Terada-sensei's booming voice echo throughout the four corners of the room menacingly. My eyes fluttered wide open in shock and my cheeks flushed deeply in humiliation.
"Hoe!" I screamed out.
My classmates sniggered at my expense but I paid them no heed. I looked confusedly at Terada-sensei's angered face and I gasped.
It was only a dream.
"Will you please try to stay up as we continue with our lesson? It's very embarrassing to Li-san here." Terada-sensei said. "I'm truly sorry, Li-san."
Syaoran shook his head in understanding but didn't even cast me one look. "It's perfectly fine, sensei but please, do continue."
I bowed my head in humiliation and flushed to the tips of my toes. I felt my lips had gone dry and I suddenly felt anxious and freaked out of the fact that… he might be turned off with me now!
I moaned internally. No!
No, no, no!
Life is unjust.
It's just not fair!
I bumped my head on the hard surface of my desk again and again and again.
That hurt. I shook my head and pinched my cheeks painfully. That hurt a lot! I sighed. Why is life always so unfair with me? A lone geek child who doesn't have enough friends considering I only have one, and that's Tomoyo Daidouji.
Speaking of which—I turned my head back—Tomoyo was looking at me concernedly with a frown playing about her lips. She gave me a small smile.
"Are you okay, Sakura-chan?" She asked, leaning forward. "You seem a bit pale."
I nodded my head and gave her a smile. "Yes, Tomoyo-chan, perfectly fine."
My eyes traveled towards Syaoran's direction and noticed him looking at me. He blushed and quickly averted his gaze from me. I arched a brow in confusion and… and hopeful that my mind wasn't playing tricks with me.
I do hope I'm not dreaming of this, I thought happily. Because it's too good to be true. And maybe—maybe I might still have a chance with him—
"Miss… Kinomoto, is it?" Syaoran whispered to me as he leaned sideways. "Please meet with me later after classes. I need to talk to you."
I said nothing.
My eyes widened.
My breath hitched.
Syaoran Li just talked to me!
End Note: Part one, done! Wee! Aren't I giddy? So many stories, so little time… sigh!
