my second attempt on a fanfic. ho-hum. i hope it won't suck like my first one. this is my way of showing how akira and tadashi became a couple :D oh, and, sorry for the bad grammar. my writing skills still need a lot of improvements. :)
That was not supposed to happen.
Toudou Akira, was inside the SA kitchen, doing her usual routine - making tea for everyone. She chose to make jasmine tea and french croissants this time. Before making the tea, she prepared the dough for the croissants ( since it'll take longer to make them ). As she knead the dough, she thought about her friends, the SA. There was her angel, Hikari. Cold-blooded monster Kei. The twins, Megumi and Jun. Animal-lover/attracter Ryuu.
Just the thought of Ryuu made her think about that moron Tadashi. And that moron Tadashi made her think of last night. And last night made her think about how stupid she was. And thinking about how stupid she was made her scream.
"GAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!!!!!!" Now kneading the dough harder. She knew kneading it as hard as that will ruined it, but she didn't mind. She needed it to release her anger. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
She was too busy getting angry at herself to noticed a figure behind her. She felt someone's hand touching her shoulder. She turned around, screamed and immediately went into defense mode, thinking it was a robber trying to steal stuff from the kitchen, or a pervert breaking in. She realized she was wrong when she saw a ( worried ) familliar face.
"We heard you scream. So, I came to check on you. Are you okay?" Hikari said with her hand still on her shoulder.
"Screaming? What screaming? I wasn't screaming!" She replied in total denial.
"You weren't? But, it sounded like you were. And, you're sweating." Hikari stated. Akira touched her face and felt something wet and sticky. "Uh.. I just.. washed my face! It's hot in here!" She said while fanning herself with one hand. Hikari doesn't look convinced.
"Are you sure you're okay?" The jet-black haired girl said again, just to be sure.
"I'm fine, Hikari." Akira reassured her with a smile.
"Well, okay. If you want to talk to someone, you can talk to me." Her friend replied, and exited the kitchen. Oh, God. I hate it when she does that. Akira thought. Even though Hikari might be dense, but when it comes to her friends, she could sense something that were troubling them and tries to help. Knowing that Hikari was gone, Akira went back to making food for her friends.
She still couldn't get what happened last night out of her head, though -
Tadashi told her to go to those marriage interviews. Of course, you would be angry if the person you love told you that. See, that's the problem. She loves him. She loves him so much she went loco at him, told him she hated him and ran away, crying. She regretted that. Thinking he must've hate her now. But, everything changed when he took her to see the night that same day.
She remembered going there when they were little. Tadashi brought her to sneak out of Yahiro's birthday party. She was reluctant at first, until he said the night was beautiful. C'mon, little girls can't refuse beautiful things. And for the first time in her life, she felt loved.
Then, he brought her there again. And she felt more loved. She decided that she'll confess to him.
But, she was too nervous, she couldn't speak. Everytime she opened her mouth, it'll close back. Her heart was beating faster than ever, her palms getting sweatier and her mind was about to explode. It was a matter of time till she had enough energy to speak.
"Ta-Tadashi." She said, stammering. She could feel the heat on her cheeks. Her eyes fixed at the night scenery.
"Mmm?" He answered. His eyes too were fixed at the landscape.
"I-I.. I love.." Okay, I don't wanna do this anymore. Shut up. Shut up. She thought to herself. But, her body wouldn't listen. She realized Tadashi was silent and his eyes were still focusing on the scenery. Hey, idiot. I'm confessing here. Look at me. She heard herself think on it's own and made him look at her.
"I love.." Shut up. Shut up. SHUT UP. She could see fear in his eyes. Now why was he afraid? She ignored the thought and focus on shutting herself up. "I.. love.." SHUT UP. SHUT UP. SHUT UP.
Oh, for heaven's sake.
"I LOVE RYUU!!" She said it out loud. And everything went slow-motion. Their shocked eyes locked in each other's. What? No. I did not say that, right? Did I just said I loved Ryuu?! Thoughts were flooding her mind. Realizing what she just said, she covered her mouth with both hands. Her eyes widen to the size of tomatoes. She was about to die out of embarassment.
I JUST TOLD THE GUY I LIKE I LOVED SOMEONE ELSE. Nice, Akira. REALLY NICE.
"A-A-A-Are you serious?" The fear in his eyes were gone and she could see a pool of sadness in it. Like a puppy who lost its momma. She couldn't answer him. Not after what she just said. An awkward silence filled around them. A moment later, Tadashi broke the silence.
"Whoa! That explained why you were so mad at me earlier! You were mad because I told you to go to those interviews, when you already have someone you like, right?"
She did not managed to protest. "Why didn't you say so?! I won't do that again! And, you're secret's safe with me!" He said with his stupid, goofy grin.
"Tadashi, no, I-"
She was cut off yet again. "C'mon! It's late! We better get home!"
She couldn't believe that guy. She was almost at the point where she could skin him alive. She was trying to explain, to make him understand. But, this guy won't let her. Oh, what the heck? Why am I angry at him? I'm supposed to be angry at myself. She tried to control herself. So, she shut herself up when he sent her home. Oh, so now her body listens to her?
And now, here she was. Sulking over it. She already shaped the dough into shapes of croissants. The only thing she needs to do left is to bake them. She almost wished she could bake her head along with the soon-to-be-baked croissants. She sighed.
By the time the croissants was done, she already finished making the jasmine tea. She organized them neatly on a tray and prepared herself to face Tadashi. She faked a smile once she entered the greenhouse. She noticed everyone was there. Kei with his laptop, Hikari with a History book, the twins with Ryuu, and an idiot clutching his ( hungry ) stomach. She groaned at the sight of him.
He smiled at the sight of the food she was carrying. Making her heart somersault, and the fake smile turned into a really angry face.
"Yay! Food! Gimme, gimme, gimme..!" He tried reaching is hand to grab a croissant, but was quickly punched by her. "Ow!"
"Stop being a slob!" She shouted at him, making him weep. "EEEEEPPP!! Scary!" Good. I'm being myself. She sighed in relief. "Here, Ryuu." She handed her animal-loving friend a plate with one croissant. Ryuu thanked her with a smile. She smiled back. Then, Tadashi suddenly appeared between them. Ryuu and Akira both looked at him, confused, while Tadashi kept converting his gaze from Ryuu to her. She had no time for his stupidity, and walk away. He stopped her when she was about to exit through the door.
She turned around to face him. He was getting closer, and closer, until he reached her right ear. She could feel his warm breath and his hair touching her cheek. She blushed.
"I won't tell Ryuu.." He whispered into her ear, and joined the others.
She ran to the kitchen, slammed the door, and leaned against it. Somehow, just by hearing him say that made her feel tired. She sat down on the floor, her back still leaning against the door. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
She stared at the oven, where she baked her croissants earlier. She let out a heavy sighed. I wish I had the guts to bake myself.
