Two Guys, 1 Night: Part 3
I do not own Digimon: Digital Monsters. So there!
Davis laughed, "Uh, Kari, I think you need some water or something."
"I'm serious, Davis," she said. "I've seen Ken before and I know he's seen me."
"Look," T.K said, "Let's not talk about this now, okay? Can we just dance?"
Kari nodded, "Sure. Sorry to bother you with such nonsense." Kari took his hand and he pulled her up. She gave them their jackets back.
"Don't worry about it."
"Hey, what about me?" Davis asked.
"You'll get your turn," Kari said.
"Well, okay, I'm next!" Davis told them and went to get more punch. While refilling his punch, a girl came to ask him for a dance. Flattered, he said "Thanks, but I'm here with Kari Kamiya."
"She's dancing with T.K Taikaishi." She said.
He nodded, "we both are."
The girl frowned and walked away.
Davis shrugged, no girl can resist the D Man! he thought to himself, but I only have eyes for my Kari!
"Kari, loosen up," T.K said, rubbing her back, "you're so tense."
"I'm sorry," she mumbled, "can't seem to get my mind off of it. It's so…freaky…"
T.K sighed, "listen, if you see him again, just tell me and I'll handle it."
"You will?" she asked, her eyes sparkling.
"Absolutely. Now loosen up! It's supposed to be a party."
"Now give me a smile!"
Kari's lips curved up pathetically.
"Oh, you can do better than that!" he told her.
She took a breath and smiled a true smile.
"That's my girl!" he kissed her cheek.
Davis almost dropped his punch, "Hey," he murmured, "I never agreed to this!" then he told himself to get a grip, remember Davis, he's with her too.
The song ended and Davis walked up. "OK, T.H, it's my turn!"
"How hard is it to say T.K?" T.K demanded, stepping away from Kari.
Davis put his arm around Kari and took her hand, "I'll get it right one of these days, T.J."
"Davis, listen," Kari said, "I wanna thank you for being there when I was dancing to Ken. I should've said no, but Yolei made me do it."
"Now that I think about it Kari," Davis said, rubbing his cheek, "he does look familiar. And there's something about him that bothers me. He just rubs me the wrong way."
"A lot of people do, Davis," Kari said, almost laughing.
"Yeah, that's true," Davis admitted, then patted his chest, "but I want ya to know, if you need me, just give me a call, okay?"
"Thanks Davis," she looked down and blushed, "that means a lot." When she raised her head, she broke into laughter.
"What? Do I have a moustache from the punch?" Davis asked, bringing his hand to his mouth to cover it. His eyebrows lifted in self consciousness.
"No, look!" she pointed behind him.
Davis peered behind him to see their teacher dancing with the school nurse. He too started laughing, "we're gonna get an A on this assignment!" he motioned to Kari to give him her camera and he quickly took the picture while the two faculty weren't looking. "Or, maybe we'll fail miserably!"
"Either way," she said, "it's still funny!"
For the remainder of the night, Kari took turns dancing with T.K and Davis. They were on their best behavior and then they left when the dance was over. For the last song and dance, so she didn't have to make a decision and make someone mad, she danced with Davis for the first half of the song and T.K for the last half. (Come on people, we all know how important the last dance is, don't we?)
"Have a good night!" the DJ said into the microphone. "Welcome back to school!"
They went outside to walk Kari home. A chill hung in the air and T.K put his jacket around Kari's shoulders. Arm and arm, they talked about their evening and the project.
"Should we meet at my house for the assignment tomorrow?" Kari suggested.
"Works for me," T.K said.
"I'm in," Davis agreed.
"It's settled then," she said with a smile. She shivered and stopped, "how can it feel like fall and school has only started?" she asked, rubbing her arms.
"Good question," T.K said. As he exhaled, he saw his breath.
"Come on, let's get going," Davis urged.
Watching the trio leave, Ken looked down them on the roof of a building, his arms crossed and his lips curled into an evil smile. "One way or the other," he muttered, "I'll stop you. In this world or the Digiworld, I'll stop you." He laughed so only he would hear, "oh yes, then no one will be able to stop me!"
"Thanks, guys," she said as she took her arms down and stood in front of her door, "I had fun."
"My pleasure," they said in unison and then looked at each other.
"See you tomorrow then?"
"I'll be here," they said in unison and this time glared as they looked at each other. "Stop saying what I'm saying!" they demanded at the same time.
Kari laughed and walked forward to peck both of their cheeks. "Good night guys," she said and then waved as she went inside.
Blushing as they put a hand on the kiss mark, they both sighed, "Goodnight, Kari."
Kari fell on the couch and she saw her roses in a face. She smiled and went to smell them.
"Did you have fun, Kari?" Tai asked.
"A blast." She said.
"So, did they give you a kiss goodnight?" he asked with a grin.
Kari blushed, "well….yeah…."
"I knew it! They have crushes on you!"
"Tai, quit it!" she turned around. "Enough about me, let's talk about you and Sora!"
"What are you talking about?" he asked dumbly. "Me and Sora? Kari, what was in the punch?"
"I didn't have any," she said, "so tell me the truth, Tai? How to do you feel about Sora? You love her, don't you? Huh, am I right?"
"Kari, give it a rest," he told her.
Using his own medicine, Kari walked up and started tickling her older brother, "Fess up, Tai! I know you like her! I saw how you were looking at her! I heard about the time she was captured and Dataman and you cried!"
"Hey! I was concerned, okay?" he said, "if one digidestined was lost then we would be unable to save the digiworld!"
"Oldest trick in the book!" she told him. "You've liked her since day one! And when she quit the soccer team, you were soooo upset you couldn't be with your girlfriend anymore!"
Tai gasped, "She was a good soccer player, that's all!"
"I wasn't talking about her soccer skills!" she started tickling him harder, "come on, Tai! You love Sora, you loooooooooveeeee her!
"Where's Meeko?" Tai looked aroudn for their cat. "Hey, Meeko, help me!"
Meeko raised his head and put back down.
"Stupid cat, hey Gatomon!" he tried to push Kari's hand away.
"What? Oh, hahahahhaha!" Gatomon fell down and started laughing.
"All right, I confess!" he managed to stand up, "I have a major crush on Sora!" he put his hands on his hips, "there, are you happy!? I think she's the cutest girl in school!"
"That's all I wanted to know," she smiled and picked up Gatomon, "well, I'm bushed, goodnight!"
Tai moaned, "man, the things you'd do for your little sister these days!"
T.K stopped at Matt's band practice before going home. After they were practicing a song, T.K came up, clapping, "bravo, bravo!" he crossed his arms, "hey, need a back up singer?" he asked.
Matt chuckled, "what are you doing here, T.K? Mom's going to be mad at you!"
"I wanted to come here first. Got a minute?"
"Sure," he put his guitar in a case and walked to him. "What's up? How'd it go with the dance?" then he started thinking something went wrong, "don't tell me you lost Kari to Davis!"
"No, it went fine," T.K blushed.
"Fine? That's all, just fine?" he poked him.
"Okay, it was awesome!" T.K backed away to prevent from being tickled to death. "The best night of my life!"
"Did you give Kari a good night kiss?"
T.K started to turn around, "maybe coming here was a mistake."
"Sorry," Matt said, "Hey, want to hear us play another song? We don't get to spend a lot of time together, you know."
T.K turned back around, "actually, there is something I've been meaning to ask you."
"What's that bro?"
T.K reached in his pocket, "I found these in your room." He pulled out lots of papers, "So, you really miss your pink lady do you?"
"T.K!" he grabbed for them, "what are you doing with those?"
T.K reached back to prevent him from taking them, he looked at them again, "oh, I thought these were just love letters, but their songs!"
"Really?" their drummer said, "hey, Matt, let's have a look!"
"Yeah," their bass player agreed, "we could use another number!"
Matt snatched the papers, "T.K, I can't believe you'd do something like this!"
T.K smiled and put his hands on his hips, "surprise, surprise!" then he started tickling him, "alright, I confessed my feelings about Kari, it's your turn!"
Their drummer hit the cymbals as if T.K just told a joke. "Yeah, go for it, T.K!" the rest of the band came forward and started laughing.
"T.K!! I'm going to tell Mom and Dad!"
"And you still call melittle? Come on, Matt, you love Mimi, admit it!"
"Hey, who's Mimi?" their bass player asked.
"I'm not sayin' nuthin'!" Matt snapped, shaking to get up to his feet.
"Hey, T.K, need a little help?" the whole band came to T.K and Matt and held him down and help tickle the daylights out of Matt.
"You guys!!!" Matt gasped, "cut it out! Ahahahahahahaha!"
"Nooooo! Never! Oh, stop, that tickles!"
"Come on Matt, I want to know who this Mimi chick is!" the bass player urged.
"Yeah, if you really don't like her, then can I have her number?" the drummer asked.
"You stay away from Mimi! She's mine!"
They immediately stopped, "well, I guess that's all I have to know then!"
"You tricked me!" Matt cried.
"Yeah, well, I'm tired," T.K said, "there's an assignment I have to work on tomorrow." He waved to the other band members, "see ya guys!"
"Bye T.K!" the players said.
The bass player picked up the songs. "Hey, this is pretty good, Matt! Let's get started on it right now!"
Matt blushed, groaned and put his hand on his head, "I should've listed to Dad…."
When Davis returned home, his sister was painting her toenails, "hey, you're back!"
"Hi Jun," he said with a smile. He sat next to her and she leaned over to smell his clothes. "Uh, Jun, what are you doing?"
"Oh yeah, I can smell her perfume!" she laughed. "So, how'd it go? Did you impress Kari?"
He nodded, "I acted like a gentlemen, like you said."
Jun raised her eyebrows as if to say, the truth, Davis.
"Okay, I tried anyway."
"Well, it was only your first date." She said, putting more red polish on her toenails. "It'll get better."
"How do you know so much?" he asked and then sighed, "Oh, you've got a thing for T.A's brother, don't you?"
"Whatever his name is," Davis mumbled, "his brother, the rock star, you like him don't you?"
"Come on Davis," she said, putting the brush back in the bottle and cleaning it off, "you know I think all guys are cute."
"Yeah, but you really, really, really, him, don't you?"
"I don't know what you're talking about."
Davis started tickling her.
"Davis! You're gonna get polish on the carpet!"
"Come on Jun, you can't fool me! You've always had a thing for rock stars!"
"I thought you said you wouldn't promise to badmouth me anymore!"
"I'm not badmouthing you," he said, tickling her feet, "I'm tickling you!"
"That's just as bad!"
"Tell me the truth, Jun! I can keep a secret!"
"NO you can't!"
He started tickling her stomach, "come on Jun, you like him! You loooooooove him!"
"Okay, okay! I think he's hot! He's the cutest rock star I've ever seen!"
"Well, that's all I wanted to know," he stood up and walked away, "goodnight, Jun!"
T.K, Davis and Kari spent two hours on the project. Pasting pictures to paper and writing their essays. After they were done, they set it on her bed and looked at it for observation.
"Well, what do you think?" Kari asked.
"I'll give it an A!" Davis said.
"It's the best!" T.K agreed. "We'll get the best score!"
On Monday morning they handed in their assignments. T.K, Davis, and Kari handed it together and Kari said, "could you grade it now?"
The teacher moaned and picked up a red pen. "Sure," he looked on the cover. They had their names written on the cover page with "The Back to School Dance" written on the front with little drawings of music notes. In the lower corner, he put +10. Then he turned the page and read Kari's essay. He put an A on it and T.K looked at her and said "Way to go!" He gave T.K's essay and A and even Davis' essay and A. Then he turned the next page to see all the pictures and his eyes widened when he saw the picture of himself dancing with the school nurse. He looked up as if to say, I should give you an F! but instead, wrote underneath the picture, "Very Funny". And went back to the cover page to put the final grade: C+.
T.K, Kari and Davis grinned at each other.
"Next time," he said, handing them the assignment. "I might not be so nice!"
The End! For sure this time! J
