The Tears of Haruhi Suzumiya
Note: Ohai everyone! I just watched the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, and it totally got me back into this anime! Also brings back memories, since the original Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu got me into anime in the first place. :D
This is a story about a stormy day where, for some odd reason, Haruhi and Kyon are the only two people in the clubroom after school. When the school's power goes out, the stolen computer in the clubroom suddenly turns on, and the two of them find themselves whisked away to parallel world. Will they be able to get back to their world? Will they be able to learn a bit about themselves as well?
You'll just have to find out. :D I plan on roughly 10-15 chapters, just depends on how it goes.
Please Read, REVIEW, and Enjoy!
Chapter One – A Rainy Day with Haruhi Suzumiya
The rain pattered down hard on the window. I leaned back in my chair and enjoyed the silent clanks and rolls of thunder that could be heard. I guess I forgot what it's like to have a peaceful afternoon, I thought, glancing over at Haruhi, who appeared to be asleep with her head on the table.
It was the first day that nobody else had shown up in the SOS Brigade clubroom after school. Haruhi didn't even seem to notice me when I walked in, and had been watching the rain fall down outside. "Hey." I said simply as I sat down. She still ignored me, so I just sighed and rested my head on my hand.
I could tell that Haruhi was extra spaced-out today, because she sat there for half an hour, staring at the rainfall, as if it were going to tell her something interesting. Only after that did she finally just lay her head down on the table and fall asleep.
Great, now I can't leave until she wakes up, I thought with a sigh, watching Haruhi's peaceful expression and shallow breathing. I guess this is a good change from the crazy things she usually makes us do. I thought that, but, at the same time, I couldn't help but miss it.
So there I sat, for a good hour, or maybe two, I didn't really count, until Haruhi finally began to stir. "Uhh..." she groaned, "What...where is everyone?" I raised an eyebrow. "Nobody else came, remember?" I told her. She laid her head back on the table and sighed.
Then, suddenly, she jumped up and shouted, "I'm going to make them pay a hugeeee fine for this!" It took me by surprise, and I jumped. Jeez, she must've been holding that in for a while, I thought. Haruhi glared at me, as if I was at fault. "W-What did I do?" I asked. Haruhi made a humph noise and laid her head back on the table, looking up at me.
She stared at me for a good five minutes before it started to weird me out. "Um...maybe we should just go home?" I suggested with a fake smile. Haruhi looked at me uncertainly for a few moments, before standing and walking over and grabbing her jacket and bag. Finally, I thought with a sigh, standing and grabbing all of my stuff.
Lightning streaked across the sky, and, to my surprise, the school trembled slightly. "Woh! What was that?" Haruhi exclaimed. I walked up to the window and looked outside, just as another bolt shot down and hit the school, making it tremble again. At this rate, I wouldn't be surprise if a fire started! I thought.
I turned around and was surprised to find that the power had gone out. The only light that could be seen was coming in through the window, and I could barely make out Haruhi, who was still standing by the table. "We should go before it gets any worse." I told her, and she nodded. I started to walk over to the door...But stopped as the computer suddenly turned on.
"What the..." I muttered, walking over to it. It had a black screen, and some text started to type itself onto the screen:
My eyes widened, and Haruhi moved over to my side. "What is it?" she asked. I hesitantly dropped his bag and put my hands on the keyboard.
I could feel Haruhi's gaze on me. "What are you-" she started to say, but she stopped as more text came up:
Who is this?
Kyon. Who are you?
There was silence for a few moments, eventually stretching into minutes. "Kyon, you're actually freaking me out here." Haruhi commented.
I have no name.
I raised an eyebrow. What the hell is this? I thought.
Where are you from?
I am from nowhere.
I didn't know how to respond to that. I took my hands off the keyboard and turned to Haruhi. "Uh, let's go, this is...a little weird." I said, and she nodded. Right before we left, another message came onto the screen.
Well Kyon. Are you ready?
I gulped as I saw the message. This is too familiar... I thought, thinking of the escape program Nagato had given me a few months ago, when she had changed the world to be 'normal'. Nagato...what the hell is this? I thought.
Haruhi suddenly pushed me to the side and started typing:
Yep, I'm ready.
"Hey! What are you doing?" I said, pushing her away. She pushed me back, and we started to get into one of our usual pushing and shoving wars...But when stopped when the computer screen suddenly turned white.
"What...?" I said. Suddenly, the whole room turned black, and I was filled with the sensation of floating. Beside me, I could see Haruhi, with a scared look on her face as well. "Kyon! W-What is this?" she said. Like I'm supposed to know! I thought irritatedly.
Then, I felt myself being jerked back, away from Haruhi. What the hell? I thought, looking at Haruhi, who also appeared to be dragged away. "Haruhi!" I shouted. "Kyon!" she cried, and I reached out and, to my surprise, was able to move myself forward and grab her hand before the blackness enveloped me...
I slowly opened my eyes to a darkened room.. The first thing I saw was Haruhi laying next to me, with my hand holding hers. My face flushed, and I quickly sat up, letting go of her hand. Looking around, I could see that we were in the SOS Brigade clubroom still.
What happened? Did anything change? I wondered, standing and looking outside. There wasn't any rain, and the ground below showed no sign of it being rained on. Great...we could be in the future, the past...Maybe even another world. I thought with a sigh.
Haruhi started to stir, and she sat up slowly, leaning back against the wall. She groaned, and held onto her head. "Haruhi?" I said, kneeling down beside her, "Are you alright?" She looked up at me and lifted a hand weakly, I was about to grab it and help her up, but she grabbed my tie instead and brought me down towards her.
"What the hell did you do?" she said in a dark voice. I gulped. You're the one who did it! I thought irritatedly. Haruhi pushed me away and stood up, looking around. "I don't think anything even happened.." she commented. I nodded in agreement, although I knew better. Something's bound to be wrong here, I thought.
"Ahh! It's late. I need to get home!" Haruhi suddenly exclaimed, grabbing her jacket and slipping into it, and grabbing her bag. She then flew out the door before I knew what was going on. Haruhi's head appeared in the doorway again, and she said, "Well? Let's go!"
I sighed and put on my jacket and grabbed my bag, quickly following her out. We left the school, and, to my relief, everything outside looked the same. As we made our way along the dark streets, nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
"It seems a little cold for it being April." Haruhi commented, shivering slightly. I sighed. Because it's probably not April right now, I thought. After walking for a bit, we split ways, and I headed towards what, hopefully, was still my home. I found myself praying the whole way there. Wait, who should I pray to? Buddha? Christ? Muhammed?...I never really figured that out, I thought with a sigh.
When I reached my home, I walked up to the front door and hesitantly put my hand on the knob. Then, I took a deep breath and tried to open the door. It was locked. What the- We never lock the front door, I thought, Mainly since I'm too lazy to do it.
I knocked on the door, and a voice came, "Hold on!" I waited, and began wondering who the voice belonged to. It sounded familiar, and it was a male. The door rustled for a moment, before opening, and I took a step back and gulped.
"Oh...Kyon, what are you doing here so late?" Taniguchi asked, rubbing his eyes. My mouth was gaping, and I took another step back. He gave me a confused look. "Tan-i-gu-chi!" another familiar voice came...And I saw my little sister pop out from behind him.
Taniguchi smiled at her and said, "O-Oh, sorry, did you wake up? Just go back to sleep sis." She nodded and turned, doing a sort of mocking walk. I didn't know what to say. My life was being taken right in front of me. "What's wrong man? You look like you just saw a ghost!" Taniguchi commented.
I didn't respond. All I did was turn and run. I needed to get away. All of what I had just seen. The life that was taken from me. "Hey! Kyon!" Taniguchi shouted after me, but I ignored it, and kept running...and running... Along the dark streets, not sure of where to go.
Whatever the hell happened when Haruhi activated that program, I thought, It can't get much worse than that.
To be continued...
