Chapter 4: Dirty little secret

the sky was painted powdered blue as a couple of clouds kept on passing and beneath it's shades, birds were flying across the sky looking for their morning food… behind a particular school's building, a young raven haired boy was leaning on the wall as he was holding a couple of pictures…

"You know what to do…" he said to that person as he handed it back to him "Tell her, I'll send her my payment"

"Yes, I'll tell her that" this dark brown haired boy said as he bowed his head

"Do it clean" Natsume said as he turned his back from him

Without any goodbyes or farewells to that associate, he began to walk from him as he placed his hands inside his pocket… but as he was about to take a turn, he stopped suddenly when heard…

"Hey Natusme" called this blonde haired boy as he was leaning on the wall

Without looking back to whom that person is…

"Hey Ruka, what's up" he replied with his usual bored tone

"What are planning now?" Ruka asked him

"Nothing much just a little payback" he replied as he placed his hands inside his pockets and tilted his body a little to face him…

"A little pay back huh?" was Ruka's reply as he turned his gaze on the left "Déjà vu… or this is the same this that occurred with Rika" he said to him calmly as he nonchalantly stood up and walked beside his best friend

"She has nothing to do with this!" he replied quickly in a voice that was filled with anger and gloom as his locks masked his face…

A complete eerie silence enveloped both of them as the fresh wind of the spring's morning passed by swiftly in between them along with their locks swaying with it… it was as if, the topic that this blonde haired boy mentioned is a taboo…

"Will you still wait for her?" he asked his friend

"I have no plan waiting for a dead person" Natsume replied coldly

"She is not dead you know" Ruka simply replied

But then Natsume didn't reply anything from what Ruka said, instead, he took his hand out of his pocket and stretched his arms…

"Let's go Ruka… I've got a new toy to play with" Natusme said to Ruka

A smile creep out of Ruka's lips and decided to let this small confrontation pass by…

"The one who falls first is the one that loses the game" were Ruka's final words

"Hn" was Natsume's simple reply as he began to walk "I have no intention in falling first place"

"And again that's what you've also said before" Ruka replied and smiled at Natsume as both of them began to walk towards their class building…


The after breeze of spring passed by swiftly and beneath its shaded blue sky a young auburn haired girl was walking along this red bricked path as her long locks that were tied in a single pony gracefully danced with the wind…

"He's not here yet" she said to herself as she glance both sides…

the air was filled with the music of the students chatting and walking side by side with their friends… slightly she clutched on the handle of the paper bag she was carrying…

"He isn't that bad, I think I miss judge him…" she thought as she recalled how he saved her last night… a faint blush passed by her face

"Mikan!" shouted a very familiar voice coming from behind her

Slowly she turned her gaze towards the person that called her attention; a smile crept out of her lips

"Anna, good morning" she greeted her everyday cheerful friend

"Good morning too… Are you feeling alright? You are face is red" she said to her friend

"Huh?! I'm j-just fine, I just remembered something" she explained as she laughed nervously

"Really, anyway lest hurry up, class will start soon and it's Jinno-sensei's" Anna said as she grab hold of Mikan's hand

Both of them then walked quickly to their class, they were lucky they arrived just before their scary teacher did…

Time passed by quickly, as each subject seemingly to pass by swiftly… This auburn haired girl who's musing as their teacher was explaining their lesson, gazed at the sky… she was too preoccupied that she didn't notice that the bell already rung… not until…

"Mikan-chan, are you going to the cafeteria?" her friend Anna said for the sixteenth time around

"Huh?" was her reply "Ahhh… Anna, no, I'll just go later, I'm going somewhere" she explained

"Okay… see yah' she said to her friend as these pink haired lass ran towards their other friends and slid the door close…

"All I have to do is give this back to him and thank him for last night" she said as she grabs hold of the paper bag

"I can do this!" she said to herself as she quickly stood up from her seat

Luckily for her, the student's section is embroidered on their uniform's jacket…


It was break time but the halls and corridors were unusually quiet as she passed by each one of them, but then as she was about to pass by the bulletin board, from a far a loud noise can be heard

"What's up there?" she thought as she saw the crowd building up in front of their school's bulletin board

Not having any interest in poking her nose in that kind of business she decided to just pass by it but then…

"Mikan-chan!" was a call that made her stop from her tracks

Slowly she turned her gaze towards the person whom called her, out from the crowd a pink haired girl came out...

"Anna, what are you do-." she said to her but before she could even finish what she is about to said to her friend, Anna quickly grab her arm and drag her toward the bulletin board.

"Hey wait a minute… don't drag me like this" Mikan protested as Anna was trying to push both of them in the crowd towards the bulletin board…

"Mikan, you need to see this" Anna said to her

"Huh??" was her puzzled reply as she held on the paper bag tightly not wanting to lose it within the crowd

Finally, they made it safely towards the bulletin board…

"Mikan, look at this" Anna said to her as she pointed the pictures that were posted on the board

"I hope this is worth the tro-." she said but then she stopped at the moment she turned her gaze towards the bulletin board

Her eyes shot wide open and gaped as it was revealed to her photo's of last night… There were tons of photos of both of them, some were the ones that she was holding unto Natsume while riding his infamous motorcycle, each picture was taken from a different angle but what shocked her most was the blow up picture at the center which caught everyone's eyes along with its caption…

"Who the hell put this here?!" she shouted

At the back ground of the picture were flashy lights and images of the girls she met that night and in the middle was her and Natsume who seemingly were kissing while his hand was under her skirt….

"When did this one taken?" she thought as she stared at the large picture at the middle

She then recalled last night's crazy happening…

"That girl…" Natsume interrupted as it was followed by a dirty smirk "yeah, she's my toy for the night… We are going to play some games in the dark" he continued as he placed his right arm around her waist…

Slowly he neared his face to her ears and whispered…

"Don't worry I'll be gentle" were the words he whispered to her as his hand began to move to her legs

"Mikan-chan, you just came back but you were already able to make out with our school's heartthrob! " Anna squealed as she slowly provoked Mikan…

"Ehhh!" she shouted "Anna don't say such things… we actually didn't make out last night" Mikan explained

"You actually didn't?" Anna asked as a spark appeared in her orbs and a smirk was painted on her lips

"Yeah" Mikan replied without a single hesitation

"If you said you ACTUALLY didn't that means you were planning" Anna said in full enthusiasm "Mikan hurry, tell me what happened last night… oohhh I can't wait"

"No!!! Nothing happened! I am not planning anything and I have no interest with him" Mikan answered as she was being pressured by her friend and the stares she is receiving around her…

"You need not to hide anything from me" Anna said trying to get a story out from her mouth

"Give me a break, anyway who posted this stupid things here I'll make him or her pay" she said angrily as she clenched her fist tightly

Anna quickly responds it seems it was obvious to everyone and only one person can have the guts to do such thing…

"Him" Anna said as he pointed his finger towards a raven haired boy who was walking along side with a blonde haired boy and a couple of friends….

Her amber orbs met with a pair of crimson ones…

"So it's Natsume" Mikan said calmly as her eyebrow twitched and a smile creep out of her lips

"Yeah, you're not mad?" Anna asked as she saw her friend's facial expression

"Of course not… why would I be, he only embarrassed me in front of everyone here and nothing less" was Mikan's reply

Anna stepped back a little as she felt something bad is going to happen…

Nonchalantly, Mikan walked towards Natsume, as every crowd watched this play in front of them….

"Natsume-kun" Mikan said in an odd way but in a sweet tone as she walked towards him while she's smiling…

"What do you want" he said in an emotionless voice

Still smiling sweetly towards him

"I just want to say thanks for last night I had fun and…" she said and it was followed by a pause

Everybody there who gathered up to watch this short skit in front of them eagerly waited for what she is going to say next, tension is rising up…

Natsume, waited for her to continue what she is going to say, his plan is working accordingly…

"So this is his new toy" Ruka thought

"And…" Mikan said as her locks masked her face

"… You left this!" she shouted as she slapped the paper bag she was holding on his face hardly that made him fall flat on his back

A vein popped out of her head as she was furious over him…

"What the hell…" Natsume said

"That serves a moron and a pervert like you!" Mikan as she glared angrily towards him and throws the paper bag right at his face

"I'm such an idiot…" she said to herself loudly

"Just noticed now" Natsume replied monotonously

"Shut up! and I thought you were a gentle man" she said and then turned her back from him

A gush of wind passed by quickly as her skirt gracefully danced with it… a smirk appeared on Natsume's face…

"Isn't this a fascinating day, a perfect view" Natsume said as he stood up "Right strawberry?"

"Strawberry, who are you calli-." she said just then she remember what she was wearing "PERVERT!" she shouted

"Hn… whatever" Natsume said still having that emotionless voice "it's not my fault that you intentionally showed me what's under your skirt"

"I didn't!" she flared back

"Hn…" Natsume grunted as he passed by her "Just don't forget this, you are my toy and I am the only one who is allowed to play or touch you"

"What the hell does that mean?" she asked him as she folded her arms

But Natsume didn't reply to what she said instead he nonchalantly waved his hand towards her and said…

"I am a gentle man when a girl is undress in front of me… don't be late" were the words he said as he pointed towards their practice…

"The nerve" she said under her breathe "Who the hell he think he is" she said as she pulled he tongue out "I wish he will transfer here or more he would be here with me…" she thought…

Meanwhile…

"Natsume, you found your self some toy that's hard to control" Ruka said

"Isn't that interesting…" was only what Natsume said in a cool manner

"She is far different from Rika" Ruka suddenly said

"Obviously, she is a different person" Natsume replied and ended that little conversation of theirs…
