It's Hot In Summer (duh)

It's hot. Burning hot.

The temperature was above 100 degrees and I'm not quite sure what I'm doing. Why exactly am I trudging myself up this hill for no apparent reason.


"Kyon, don't you want to do something exciting?" Haruhi asked for about the hundredth time that day.

"Not particularly." I wasn't really feeling up to her eccentricities that day.

"Too bad, tomorrow we'll search for excitement!"


"Because, that makes life more interesting! It's summer, and besides, do you have anything better to do?"

"Well, I'm sure I could-"

"Get ready Kyon! The SOS Brigade is going to meet at the station tomorrow at noon."

Flashback ends here

So now me and Haruhi are 'looking for excitement', while Koizumi, Miss Asahina, and Nagato were probably chilling out on the other side of town.

The only reason I agreed to go was because if I didn't, Haruhi would go into some weird and freaky depressive state, and the world would be in danger.

Yeah, my life is just awesome like that.

So Haruhi and I have been walking for a couple hours now, and I was getting pretty tired. (Did I mention it was hot and the middle of summer?)

Strangely, after our hours of silence, it was broken by non-other that the evil brunette beside me.

"Kyon, let's see if anything strange is down this street."

We turned left, and I realized it wasn't a street. Just a stupid alley.

"Haruhi, I don't think-"

"Kyon, I heard something," and she took off running, pulling me by my collar. Any random guy on the street should've realized that they should pull out their cell phones to notify police that I was being pulled into a dark alley by a seemingly-crazy teenage girl. Oddly no one even noticed.

We stopped at a dead-end.

"Dammit, I swore I heard something." I was going to comment with a smart-alic remark, but that's when I felt something cold against the back of my neck.

Haruhi turned to look at me and looked… disappointed?

No, shocked… definitely shocked.

A dark voice then said, "Pull out your wallet and you won't get hurt." That's when I heard the click. And I realized there was a gun to my head, and I was being robbed.
