A Frail Girl and Her Protector
Chapter 1: Scribbling Away.
Beginning notes- Well you guys voted for it… Or kind of didn't vote (I had a breath taking total of 9 people vote this pairing winning with a superb 5 votes. -_-) Anyways this pairing is one of my favorites and I will focus on just them this time. It is not a continuation of my last one but a different story entirely, And In no way related, to Two Heart Revealed…Also Disclaimer. (Lucky star is not mine) here we go…Sorry it took so long to start this one up.
Two people walked down the hall, on their way back from the nurse's office after school had already ended. Luckily she was still there, most people had already gone home for the day, and however two remained. Of the two people one was a small pink haired girl, the other a tall quiet, green haired girl.
"…Minami-Chan…Im sorry I always get sick, and you always have to take me to the nurse." The fragile pink haired girl Yutaka said
"Don't worry about it…Im happy to take you there… I mean Im not happy that you get sick…I just, I mean…" The shy Minami responded
"Don't worry Minami I know what you mean." A tint of red appearing on her cheeks
"…It is not fair that you get sick all the time."
"…well at least I have such a nice friend to walk me to the nurse."Yutaka said now blushing more
"...I…just want to make sure your okay."
"That's because you are so nice…Im glad I met someone like you."
"…I…Umm… Yeah me too." Minami said now also blushing at the compliment.
"…well since we are already together do you want to hang out today?" Yutaka shyly asked
"…well I should probably get you home… especially after you almost fainted in class."
"Well then do you want to just stay at my house for a little bit?" Yutaka asked as they neared the exit to the school
"…is it really such a good idea with you not feeling well?"
"…I will be okay… with you there." Yutaka said now greatly blushing
"I…I…I guess so." Minami said returning a blush almost as bright
"…b…besides I kind of need help on the stuff I missed in class."
"…yeah that's true… hold on, let me call home and make sure I can." Minami said as she quickly pulled out her phone dialing the number for her house.
"Hey mom… Yutaka wanted to know if I could head to her house to help her study…Is that alright?" Minami asked her mom walking slightly away
'She is so nice… always helping me, and walking me home…I hope I am not too much of a bother to her.' Yutaka thought swaying back and forth cutely as she watched Minami, blushing and looking away once Minami looked back at her.
"…she is so adorable… why do I have to feel like this? Is It really right to have these kinds of thoughts…But…I can't help it…I just have this feeling like I should always watch over her...I mean…I know she is a girl, but I can't help feeling this way…For some reason I just want to be near her." Minami thought Hanging up her phone.
"Yeah they don't mind…" Minami said, as she walked back to Yutaka.
"Cool…I need to catch up on those notes I missed…" Yutaka replied, happily.
"…School notes…Is that all she thinks about? Why…Why does she not see how I feel about her? Maybe…Maybe she just doesn't think about me like that…maybe she really just want to be friends…But I don't want that…I want to hold You Yutaka…I want to…Kiss you." Minami thought, as her and her petite friend, casually boarded the train bound for the Izumi residence.
Minami boarded first then turned around, helping Yutaka in, a feat that she most definitely did not need assistance with, but it did give Minami a reason to hold her hand for a few moments, and that was enough of an incentive for her. They then both sat down, Minami taking the window seat, because Yutaka always said it was too bright.
"…If…If you want you can rest your head on me." Minami nervously said, blushing slightly.
"…Okay." Yutaka replied, as she gently laid her head on against Minami's arm, the contact causing both Yutaka and Minami's cheeks to display a tint of red.
"…Im so pathetic…Craving just to have her lay against me…Why Yutaka…Why do you make me feel as I do? Why can't I just tell you I love you?" Minami sadly thought as she looked as the fragile angelic figure, against her.
"…Are you feeling fine? You still looked like you had a fever when we left." Minami asked, worried for the sickly girl lying against her.
"…yeah…Im okay now." Yutaka replied, smiling as she looked up at her friend.
"Minami is such a nice girl…I can't believe nobody else in the class realizes it…But I do…She is so wonderful…Always helping me, even when I don't need it…She is like my guardian angel…" Yutaka thought, as she looked up at her friend.
"…Umm…You only missed the last hour of class…Right?" Minami shyly asked.
"…Yeah…But history is not my strong point…And I know you're good at it."
"…I really don't even need help…Actually Im pretty good at history…But it would be nice to spend some time with Minami…Even if it is just a study session." Yutaka thought to herself.
"…Didn't she say she was good at history and bad at math last time we hung out? M…maybe Im just imagining that…Ohh well…Even though it is just a study session, I really enjoy spending time with her." Minami thought, as she glared out the window in front of her, however the thing she was truly staring at was the petite girl's reflection in the glass.
"…Our stop should be in just a few moments…" Yutaka quietly said. Remembering the 5 minute call, that happened awhile ago.
"…Yep…" Minami replied, nodding her head slightly.
As the train slowly screeched to a halt, Minami gently rose out of her seat, then offering out her hand, sprung Yutaka out.
"…You…You don't need to help me up…Even I can do that." Yutaka said chuckling slightly.
"…I…Im sorry…I just wanted to help." Minami replied, sadly.
"…Great now she probably thinks Im weird…I…She can stand up by herself…But…But I really just want to hold her hand, even if it is for just a moment…And I just want to help her…But she doesn't need help with everything…I probably am annoying her, constantly trying to help her do everything." Minami sadly thought.
"…Its fine…Your just trying to help me…Really Im glad...I was just thinking I might have been a burden to you." Yutaka replied, realizing her remark made Minami slightly sad.
"No…You don't burden me…I want to help you." Minami replied.
"…Thank you." Yutaka responded, happily
"…She is so nice…And her hand was so warm…To have her holding mine…If only for a few moments, It is still so nice…She really is the most helpful person I ever met…It's like all she thinks about is helping me." Yutaka thought, as she looked up towards her protector.
"…Anyways…Your house is not too far from here…If you start feeling bad, just telling me…And I could…Help you…" Minami suggested, however quickly regretting it, thinking she was being a tad direct.
"…Yeah thanks." Yutaka replied, not realizing what Minami truly meant. "…But I think I am feeling fine now." Yutaka said as her and Minami began walking, the rather short, 10 minute walk. However every few moments, Minami would look down at her small friend, checking to make sure she was okay.
After about 7 minutes of their walk, mostly in silence however random snippets of conversation were thrown in, Yutaka began feeling slightly lightheaded and Minami, being a vigilant hawk of a guardian she is, quickly grabbed her, as she fell to her knees.
"…Minami-Chan…T…Thank you." Yutaka shyly responded, blushing slightly.
"Are you okay?" Minami asked, in response.
"…Yeah…Just a tad lightheaded…Im okay now." She said, struggling to stand up, and then falling back into Minami's arms. "…Guess not…Sigh…Im so pathetic."
"…You're not pathetic." Minami replied, feeling very sad for her friend.
"…Yes I am, I am always getting sick, and I can barely even walk home without your help." Yutaka replied.
"…Its okay…I want to help you…And I will be there whenever you need it…So don't worry about that stuff." She gently replied, blushing at this sentiment.
"…T…Thank you Minami-Chan…" Yutaka replied, Standing up again, wobbling slightly but regaining her balance.
"…Do you want me to carry you?" Minami asked, blushing even more now.
"…I…I…I don't know…Its kind of embarrassing…And…And I don't want to have to make you do that." Yutaka replied, blushing equally.
"..I…Its fine…Here climb on my back, and put your arms on my neck…I will carry you." Minami said, as she bent down slightly, holding her arms behind her back, in the form of a cradle.
"…I…I don't know…" Yutaka replied, nervously looking around. "…It's…Only a 3 or so minute walk from here…I can manage."
"…That's what you said before falling last time…Go ahead…Its fine…I don't want you falling again." Minami replied.
"…Okay…" Yutaka said, before climbing on to her back, wrapping her arms around her neck as she instructed.
"…See, its fine." Minami replied.
"…Thank you…Minami." Yutaka said, as Minami began walking forward, which was at first a tad difficult, however she didn't mind, in fact it was quite the opposite.
"…Now, I am holding her…Yutaka…This is so nice…Even if it is just because you don't feel good…It still makes me really happy, just to feel you against me like that…I…I am so weird, I say, it is because I don't want her falling…Which is true…But I really just want to hold her…I feel so bad though...Why can't I just tell her, how she makes me feel…Instead I just do things like this, talking her into letting me hold her…I feel so Manipulative…But I truly just want to take care of her." Minami thought, as she held the fragile girl in her arms, walking down the street. Getting some bizarre looks from people and others thinking it was rather cute.
"…She is actually holding me…It is a really nice feeling…She really is my Guardian…But…But I always feel like I am burdening her…But I really like it when she helps me…She is so nice…I may always say I am being a burden, but I really enjoy everything she does for me…The way she cares for me…Like a girlfriend, would…Ohh no…is that a weird thought…Can two girls even date…Wait why am I thinking that….Dating Minami would be nice…And she takes such good care of me…But…But does she like me? She is always caring for me…But…But does that mean she feels the same? I…I don't know…Why am I thinking this?" Yutaka thought, as she gently closed her eyes, and laid her head against Minami's shoulder.
"…Laying her head against me? M…Maybe she is really not well…Its okay…She probably just needs a little rest." Minami thought, greatly enjoying the contact.
"…If only for a bit…You are so warm…If it is only for a small amount of time, I want to feel you…Im sorry, I make you do all this for me." Yutaka thought, as the two continued walking, in peace, all the way to her house, in complete silence.
Across, the street, for some unknown reason, a rapid scribbling of a pencil could be heard, as a curious Meganekko captured the brilliant scene before her.
"…We are here…" Minami said, breaking the silence, as the approached the Izumi residence.
"…Okay, let me down please…I don't really want my dad seeing…He…He can be a little weird sometimes." Yutaka replied, thinking how Sojiro might react to seeing this, not to mention the teasing of her cousin that would ensue.
"…Okay…" Minami responded, bending down to let her friend down. "…Are you feeling better now?"
"Yeah…Thank you for carrying me." Yutaka said, blushing slightly.
"…I…I didn't want you falling again…It…It was no big deal."
"…Well…Thank you anyways…It was really nice." Yutaka said as she turned the handle, opening the door to her house.
"…Onee-Chan…Im home." Yutaka yelled however there was no response.
"…Hmm…Perhaps she is gone." Minami suggested.
"…Yeah…Maybe…" Yutaka said, looking around for a trace. "…I don't see her shoes anywhere…Or dads…Odd, they should be home." Yutaka responded, as she ran off.
"…I didn't see her in her room, where she usually would be…She must have gone off to Kagami's house…She is over their a lot lately." Yutaka said, as she came running back.
"…Ohh well…Guess it's just us here." Minami replied.
"…Yep…Anyways…I should just need the notes from today...I don't want to make you have to stay all day." Yutaka replied, thinking once again that she was being a bother.
"…You don't need to worry about that, I told my parents I would be home at like 7:00, that's gives us a couple hours…I can give you those notes and help you with the homework if you want." Minami replied.
"…Okay…Thank you." Yutaka replied, as they walked towards her room, pulling out their books, and papers. Yutaka began copying Minami's notes, as Minami started doing the assigned work.
"…Okay…I didn't miss much, this is pretty simple." Yutaka said, noticing the rather short notes.
"Yeah…Their wasn't that much to do today, I think teacher is getting kind of lazy since it is near the end of the school year."
"I did notice that…But they still assign all this homework." Yutaka said sighing, when she saw her list of homework she had to do. As she finished, copying the notes, she first pulled out her math book, wanting to get that over first.
"…It really is not that hard…I can help you." Minami replied, pulling her own, finished work out.
"You're done already?" Yutaka replied, in astonishment.
"Yep…I finished it after the test, I got done before the others so I started it, and managed to finish it just before class ended." Minami explained.
"Ohh, cool." Yutaka replied.
"…Anyways, We didn't really learn any new equations so you can just copy that if you wish…No reason to work it all out, since I know you are pretty good at math anyways."
"…Yeah thanks." Yutaka replied, grabbing the papers.
"And, the only other stuff is the History you missed." Minami explained.
"…Yeah…I think I got the gist of what I missed…Your notes are pretty detailed, it's like I was actually in the room still when I look at them." Yutaka responded, over exaggerating a tad.
"…Heh, yeah…I like to take good notes, or else I won't remember it." Minami replied.
"Umm…I don't really get this question here…did she explain that in class?" Yutaka asked.
"Yeah…Umm here is my work…the answer is…" Minami replied, pulling her won work out.
After a long time of scribbling away at their homework, the two managed to finish just in time. As Minami looked at the clock she noticed it was already 6:30. A few minutes past the time she should leave, if she planned to be home by 7:00.
"…Umm I should get going…I told them I would be home at 7:00 and it takes awhile to get back." Minami said, standing up and stretching, then placing her books and papers back into her bag.
"…Alright…Thank you so much for all the help." Yutaka replied.
"…No problem…I would feel bad if I didn't help you…"
"…But still you are such a nice friend…To do all this just for me…" Yutaka said blushing slightly.
"I…It really is not big deal…I just want to help."
"...Well, thank you…You know…You really are the nicest and best friend I ever had." Yutaka replied, very shyly.
"…T…Thank you…" Minami replied, blushing, and very happy to hear such a nice compliment, especially since it came from the person she so loved.
"…It is true…You are a really nice person Minami." Yutaka replied, unaware of how much those word meant to her friend, each one of Yutaka's sweet, complimenting words, were like sugar, coated in pure happiness, for Minami.
"…Y…You are too." Minami replied, blushing greatly trying to hide her face. "…Umm…Anyways I…I should get going." Minami said walking out the door.
"Okay…See you later." Yutaka replied, walking with her to the door.
"Y…Yeah see you tomorrow." Minami replied, waving behind her, not wanting to turn around, and show Yutaka how much she was blushing, because of her sweet words.
Later that night, a very distracted and weary Minami scribbled away at a piece of paper, lost in her thoughts, a small pile of crumpled papers, lying in the small can near her desk.
"Dear Yutaka…No…That doesn't sound write…To formal." She thought crumpling up another piece. "…My Sweet Yutaka…I…I…" She said out loud her hand shaking slightly, crumpling yet another tossing it aside. "…I what? What am I trying to say…Can I really just tell her I love her…Today…Today was so nice…I can't stand this…I want to tell her how she makes me feel…Tell her all I want is to be with her…Why can't I…This is so infuriating." She thought, throwing another paper away. "…Maybe…Maybe I should write it like my others." She thought looking at the stashed secret poems, she had written over the past year, hidden under her bed. "…If I write it normally…Perhaps I could write one of those." She thought as she began writing.
"My Sweet angel, my vision of beauty, my fragile companion… My one desire in this mortal coil, This desire is to be yours and yours alone…To hold you, to kiss you, To love you…This is my one desire…The desire I hold dear, as you gallant knight…You Shield of Aegis…Your Sword of divinity. I wish to tell you of my love. To show you my true feelings…This is my wish to you…Dear Yutaka…My wish, as your Protector." Minami wrote, holding the paper in her hands. Crying as she reread over it, hoping with all her heart, that Yutaka would not reject her.
"…Perfect…I…I might not be able to say it to her…But if she read this…If she read this she will know…She has to know…I want her to know how I feel, I want her to love me back…Please, Yutaka…Please accept me." Minami thought to her as she tucked the paper into her backpack, then lied down on her bed, staring at a picture she had of the two of them. One that stood on her nightstand, the same picture she stared at, before sleeping, every day the past year.
