Disclaimer: I don't own Julius Caesar by Shakespear


I was back in school two days later. My mom wanted to make sure I was completely healthy when I want back. Kari came and visited me those two days, but nothing happened. I was going to tell her the second day that she came that I loved, her but Willis was with her. Apparently he moved into the same apartment building as me, Cody, and Yolei, so he decided to see how I was doing. I would have been better if he wasn't there thou.

A lot of people came up to me on my first day back to see what happened. I guess Odaiba High's star basketball player along with lacrosse player can't go missing for a week without anyone noticing. I didn't really mind too much because it was good to be back among people, instead of cooped up inside for a week. Even thou I was asleep for three days it doesn't matter I still felt like I was inside for a week.

I went to my fifth period class not to excided because I hadn't seen Kari all day and she was my only true friend in that class. But to my surprise when I walked in I saw Kari with Willis, chatting up a storm. I was going to creep up be hide her but I didn't because my teacher Mr. Wallower was right be hide me. Yelling "Shut up and get in your seats." I don't think he was in a good mood.

He didn't even realize he was standing be hide me until I sate be hide Kari since Willis had taken my seat beside her.

"Oh, Mr. Takaishi I see you want to take part in my class again." He bellowed. From that I could tell he was pissed because I was one of his students, and what teacher in a good mood would yell at there favorite student?

"I was in the hospital Mr. Wallower. I thought my mom called in to say this but I guess she didn't." I stated, with no emotion whatsoever"Oh, I see. That's another story then. See me after class then so I can give you the assignments you missed. Well everyone take out your copies of Julius Caesar, and open up to Mark Anthony's speech after Caesar's death.

And since your back in class Mr. Takaishi you get to say his speech in the front of the class, while everyone reads along."

Most students would be pissed to have to read in front of the class but I wasn't. I loved to read in front of people, so it was a privilege for me. I walked down the isle to the front of Mr. Wallower's desk and started reading looking straight at Kari but she didn't notice because her face was buried in the book.

"O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,

That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!

Thou art the ruins of the noblest man

That ever lived in the tide of times.

Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!

Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,

--- Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips,

To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue ---

A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;

Domestic fury and fierce civil strife

Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;

Blood and destruction shall be so in use

And dreadful objects so familiar

That mothers shall but smile when they behold

Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;

All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:

And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,

With Ate by his side come hot from hell,

Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice

Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;

That this foul deed shall smell above the earth

With carrion men, groaning for burial."

I walked back to my seat to see Kari staring straight at me with a huge smile on her face. Her smile made my knees weak and I almost feel. Mr. Wallower apparently saw this and asked if I was ok. I replied yes then sate down. For the rest of the class Mr. Wallower asked us questions about want we thought that whole thing meant. I didn't listen to anyone's opions except for Kari's, but it was cut short by the bell ringing and people in the hall way screaming.

As I was gathering my things Kari came up to me. "TK, that was great, when are you going to listen to me and try acting?" Kari exclaimed.

"No it wasn't, and never. I can't act and besides I don't have any free time anymore to even try it."

"It was thou TK, and stop complaining about having no free time. It's your own fault if you don't have any free time. I mean do you really need to be the star player for two teams?"

"I can't help it that I'm gifted."

"Mr. Takaishi and Ms. Kamiya I won't write any late passes so I would hurry up and get to class."

"Yes sir!" Kari and I said at the same time.

"I'll save you a seat at lunch." Kari said while starting to walk out of the class room.

After I finished getting all my things started I walked down to Mr. Wallower's desk when he got up and started gathering pieces of paper from his desk. Even thou I'm pretty tall Mr. Wallower still towered over me, standing at least 6 foot 6. He wasn't that old either he was about 27; he came here from America when Matt was a freshmen, no one knows why he came to Japan, but I never heard anyone complaining. He helped out with the lacrosse team a lot; well really he worked with me a lot during lacrosse practice.

"Ok, Mr. Takaishi here is the assignments. There are three worksheets and two essays. At least 500 words like normal." Right when he handed me the assignments I started to leave, and I heard Mr. Wallower say "I haven't finished giving you the assignments yet." I slowly turned around because I just wanted to go to lunch.

"There will be a ten page paper due three weeks from now. I don't care what you write about but it can't be anything to mature. Got that."

"Yes, sir"

"Ok then you can leave now. And I'll be stopping by practice so you be ready to work."

"Yes sir." I walked down the hall wall towards the cafeteria and before I even entered I heard Davis scream "GET OVER HERE T.E.!!!!"
