Hiya! Yepp, new fic XD -hurray! This one is a bit different from the others though. For example; it's not written in either Tai or Matt's pov and you have no idea what's going through their heads. So it's almost from the 'grown-ups' point of view (such as parents or teachers) ...although technically it's not written in their pov, but... DAMMIT this was all so clear in my head but now it's just sounds confusing! Ahem... well anyhow I hope you get what I'm trying to say here once you've read the chapter...
disclaimer: yadda yadda yadda... you know I don't own anything... trust me, if I did own Digimon, I'd let you know
"Ah, Yagami Taichi! Nice to see you came after all"
"Um, yea… what exactly is this about, miss?"
"Have a seat."
Tai sat down on the yellow armchair, glancing at the teacher suspiciously.
"You know TK, don't you Taichi?"
"Sure do. He's my best friend's little bro. Why?"
"Well, his teacher has been a little concerned about him," the teacher started off. "We believe it has something to do with you."
"Oh? What about it?"
"TK has been really quiet for these last couple of days. And that's rather unusual for him. He's a very polite boy, Taichi, but since Monday, he hasn't even answered his own teacher."
"Sounds kind of strange…"
"Like I said, his teacher is very worried."
"Um, miss? What has this got to do with me?" the teen asked, aching an eyebrow.
"You can call me Tai, if you want. Hearing my whole name makes me feel like I'm in trouble or something." He said, grinning a little. His teacher chuckled.
"Alright, Tai." She paused, her face getting serious again. "We suspect that TK's sudden lack of words is partly due to the fact that he has witnessed something."
"…how do you know that?"
"That's often the reason for a child to stop talking. And besides…" The teacher once again stopped, eyeing the teen before her carefully. "…TK has been drawing pictures."
Tai tilted his head to the side slightly, blinking curiously. "…pictures?"
"Yes. He started that just yesterday, when his teacher gave him some sheets of paper to entertain himself, since he refused to join the others."
Tai glanced at his watch. "Uh-huh. So…"
"The pictures, several of them, involve humans. Boys, to be more specific. Line-drawn pictures. Off course that's not very odd for a eight-year-old boy to draw, still…" She became silent, wondering how she was supposed to continue. After a while of silence the teenage-boy looked up from his slightly more interesting watching-subject.
"Huh? Oh, I'm sorry. I was just searching for the right words."
Tai sighed, sinking deeper into the armchair. By now, restlessness had taken over his manners. He could've been out on the schoolyard right now, play football, hang out with Matt, annoy Sora, or... LOTS of other things than sitting in this room, listening to that woman whom was now smiling at him in a way that made him want to roll his eyes. Still he managed to smile a little in return and she gave him an apologising look.
"I understand this is… well, boring for you, but please understand that this is important. And since you're likely involved in this trauma, you have the right to know."
"So when do I enter the picture, miss?"
"Well, literally yesterday, shortly after he started drawing. His drawn men suddenly got brown hair. Really big brown hair. So we figured it was you. Plus they wore goggles."
Tai laughed, shaking his head. "That does sound like me."
"That's not all, though. Mrs Suzuki showed me a very… interesting drawing TK made. It was a picture of you, probably, and his big brother."
"We're best friends. I don't see why that should be odd."
"The fact you two are in TK's drawing is not what's concerning us, Taichi."
"Right. Anyhow, it's the fact you two… well, you're sort of drawn as a couple. In some pictures you are in a big shape of a heart, in others you're holding hands, in some you're even kissing…"
The boy sat motionless in the yellow armchair, staring at her. The room was silent for a moment and they were both studying each other for any sign of reaction and for any sign on joking.
"In many cases pictures are a way for children to express themselves, and perhaps reveal something." The teacher added hesitatingly.
"Hold up! Are you saying that you think it's true?" Taichi blurted out, tightening his fists automatically like he always did when he got insulted or pissed off.
"No, no, of course not Taichi…"
"Tai. And no, I'm not dating Matt. Why TK draws stuff like that I have no idea, but that's not what's going on!"
The teacher leaned back in her chair, nodding. "I see. Well, I'm really sorry if I offended you, it wasn't my intention. Still, can you recall him seeing something that he might've… misunderstood?"
Tai shook his head. The teacher sighed. "Well, I guess that's out of story then. I'm really sorry for wasting your time; still I appreciate you clearing that up. Now we don't have to wonder over that anymore." She smiled and the boy rose to his feet, leaving the room quickly.
Since this is new and all, I'd really appreciated if you reviewed! I need to know if you like this (which I sincerely hope u do)
And remember; I can take criticism! All though I might start crying after a while... nah, just kidding
