Chapter 16: Living
When he'd first gotten out of bed on Monday morning he had to steady himself against the wall as his room spun in circles. After a minute or more everything returned to normal with the exception of his pounding head. Each pump of blood thrashed so hard that he prayed his heart would just stop beating.
"Tk, are you up yet?" Nancy said with a knock on his door.
"Yeah mom." He answered and opened the door himself. "I'm up."
"Ok, I'm off to work. Have a good day at school." He nodded and watched her figure disappear town the hallway. Tk tried to return to his morning routine and took a shower before collecting his books for school. He fried up a few eggs and took an aspirin with water before heading out the door to go meet Kari a half mile away from their bus stop to the university.
"Hey Tk, guess who finished Mr. McLan's midterm essay two days early?" Kari said with a huge grin when she approached him.
"Um, let me think." He said putting his arms around her waist. "That ginger leprechaun that sits a top his pile of gold in the back of the class whistling Over the Rainbow?" he said with a kiss at her neck. She giggled. "Or is it the caveman who grunts continuously while roasting a hog over an open fire during class." He kissed her neck again.
"Of course it's not either, silly." She said while trying to hold back her giggle.
"You're right, how stupid could I be. The leprechaun only likes economics and the caveman is illiterate. Dumb, dumb, dumb." He said with a tap of his forehead against hers.
"One more guess." She said happily.
Tk let her go and took a thoughtful stance, "Maybe," he stroked his chin, "it's that beautiful chocolate eyed brunette with the adorable smile." Kari gave him a playful hit on the arm. "What? Did I guess wrong?"
"Oh shushhhh." She said with a blush.
"So I was right." He said proudly. "Maybe Christine will let me copy it."
Kari punched him harder in the arm. "Tk." She said with a roll of her eyes.
"Alright, alright. I suppose Christine has dirty blond hair. I'm sorry I got confused." Kari punched him harder still and starting walking towards school. "I kid, I kid. Of course you're the adorable one." He said grabbing her wrist. She swung around and brought her face close to his.
"You're in such a good mood this morning?" She questioned curiously.
"Yeah, I woke up with a horrible headache but now it's totally disappeared: the magic of aspirin."
Kari smiled and pecked his lips before turning around and continuing to walk hand in hand. "Good, so you're up for visiting Patamon and Gatomon in the digital world today."
"Definitely! I feel like I haven't seen him in ages." Tk exclaimed excitedly.
Kari gave him a suspicious look, "We saw them yesterday."
"It just feels like a long, long time."
"Okay, whatever." Kari said with a shrug. "We better hurry if we don't want to be late for the bus."
A mischievous smile appeared on Tk's face, "We'll make in on time, we always do."
So, what does everything think? Do you think Tk remembers or not? It's for you to decide.
