OHHHHH WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN?!
"What's going on?" Suna asked.
"I don't know…" Chun answered.
"They're fighting…" Subaru said.
"This is awkward…" Ken spoke.
"Why are we whispering?" Doctor Sally asked loud and clear.
"Oh, um…" They looked around to find an excuse.
While for me, my mother is the one who needs an excuse.
"Ken this is your new sister I adopted." She smiled the best she could.
"Don't you mean 'old' sister?" I glare at her.
"Don't give me that look." She glares back.
"Says the woman who sent me to adoption." I cross my arms.
"You were the one who sent her away?" Chun shouted.
"Yeah, 11 years exactly." I say
She kept her mouth closed.
"Can I stop acting now, Doctor Sally?" I ask looking down.
She nods her head in silence.
"On MY birthday. That's what caused me to be in this mess she kept me hidden from Ken, so that's why he never knew I existed. She was too embarrassed of what came out of her." I walk up to her, "You sent us away, you made us go through hell out there! And to think I actually got to meet you again. I have a few words to say to someone like you. I've been waiting for years to tell you, but you know what? After finally meeting you, you disgust me. I can't believe it took you this long to recognize your own daughter." I say
She mumbles something I can't hear.
"Get out!" She shouts.
"Gladly." I state and walk out.
I don't stop, I keep going.
I turn around, and see Chun's gleaming eyes locked on mine. His hand was around my wrist.
"What?" I ask shaking my hand free from his grip. He held tighter.
"Is that true? She's your birth mother? Ken was your older brother all along? You knew this didn't you and you kept it from us? Why? Why didn't you tell us? How did you know this? DO you know trust us? Talk to us. We're always here for you. I just… I can't believe you didn't tell us something about this."
"I did, or at least I tried. It was the day before your training was getting super serious. I had something important to say, but you know what you guys said? 'Hold on. I'm just about to beat Ken in this video game' 'I have a couple more pages until I finish this book' 'I'm in the middle of knitting my mother's scarf back together'. Really? I have tried. It was extremely important, but I guess to you guys what I have to say isn't important."
"Don't refer to the past."
"All I want to say is that… You know what. I'm just not going to tell you know. I'm going to 'get out' like my mother said for me to do. Just leave me alone." I shook my hand out of his grip and walked off.
I realize he was following me, so I start running.
Surprisingly he was able to catch up. He has certainly improved.
I start to sprint. He suddenly gets faster.
Ladies and gentleman, superman is now born. I suddenly get this feeling. This cold feeling. Like I want to get away from him. I run faster.
I trip on a rug while going down the main endless hallway and I do a somersault. Then I suddenly start doing forward flips. Losing control I start to stop and take a left. Oh I'm sprinting now? Then I bump into someone. I feel like I'm flying backwards then.
All I know is that it's dark.
"Hey, wake up. Hey!"
I can hear you. Shut up….
"Doctor Sally, it's not working. She's not awake. I should really talk to mom about this."
I immediately snap my eyes open and try to sit up, but all I see is Chun and the rest holding me down to the bed.
"Let me go…" I say a bit groggier than I intended.
"Are you sleep talking again?" Suna shouts.
"NO! Shut up! You're giving me a headache." I respond.
"We can't let you out." Chun said.
"Doctor Sally's orders." Ken said.
"How's mom doing?" I ask him.
"She's stressed out."
"Good." I state.
"Now that you're unable to move…"Chun began.
"I'm injured. I need to sleep. Good night." I say and close my eyes.
Fake sleep of course. I can't really sleep like that. What kind of person would I be if I could do that?
"We know your faking." Suna said.
"Just leave her alone. She probably wants some space." Subaru defended.
"We can't though. Remember what Doctor Sally told us?" Chun said.
What? I went crazy again didn't I? I just know it. What happen this time? Was I Happy Sekai? Sad? Or…
"I'm back. Thanks for watching over her." Doctor Sally said coming through the door.
"Where am I?" I ask in a plain tone.
"In Doctor Sally's office." Ken smiled.
I just nod my head.
"You guys can leave, I have to talk to Sekai about something important and I want you to go home. This instant. I'll call you when I need you." She pointed at the door.
Everyone seems upset with me.
Shit. The guys let go of my hands and when I finally look at them, they were wrapped up.
"Wait until they leave." She interrupts.
She looks out the window. I'm guessing she sees four little bobbing heads get in a car and drive away.
"Ok, continue." She says looking at me.
"I didn't turn into IT did I?" I ask.
"No." She sighs, "You turned into Sporty Sekai. Are you tired? Do you need anything?"
"Why did I fall asleep this time, but didn't all the other times?" I ask.
"New medication? Not sure. I was hoping you would know." She sighs.
"I was pretty troublesome wasn't I?" I ask.
"Well, kind of… It started out like this…" She begins.
"You bumped into Suna, which made you fly backwards, hitting the wall really hard. I don't know how that happened, but it did. I can't really explain how. Suna said you just ran into him, and he didn't feel it. They you changed into a sporty character. You challenged all four of the guys to a competition to whatever it was. Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, and whatever it was they did it. They didn't know what was going on, but just went with it. My theory of what happened was that once you 'closed your eyes' and opened them, you were supposed to still be awake, just seeing a different you and what was happening right? Well my point is, is that maybe some of your hidden characters have to take more energy so you had to fall asleep in order to do that. So you have to watch out. You have to take your medication. I don't what to do if you don't, because I'll just have to have the guys pin you down. You'll start screaming, and-and I don't know what to do. I get really scared and I get nervous about what I'm supposed to do and-"
"I get it. I put you under pressure. I did take my medication; it's just that I was so angry that I forgot about it. I'll be sure I'll take it. I'll try my best. I swear I'll try. I won't guarantee you that I will ever put you in that position again, because I might have too." I assure.
"Right. So did you just fall asleep or…"
"I don't really know. It's confusing to explain. I don't know what happened, but when I was knocked out or whatever, I saw something. I don't really remember what it was, but all this time I don't know why it shows up now…" I say
"Let's just let it slide for today. I don't feel like doing any work today at all. I'm just so tired. I bet you just want to get this day over with."
"You know, I have to keep you in here right?" She asks.
"Meaning I have to stay the night here?" I ask.
"Well… Okay then. It's not like I'm going to complain… But I have to warn you, I will scream tonight and I know it."
"What does that mean?" She asks.
"If I scream tonight in my sleep at 2:35 in the morning, don't rush through the doors and whatever. I swear I'll be okay." I answer.
"Alright then." Doctor Sally says in a normal tone.
"So I'm going to have to stay here all day?"
"Yup. Just sleep for now. It's only six."
"Nah, can you hand me my iPod?" I ask pointing at the little rectangle on her desk with a black wire coming out of it.
I put my headphones on and start listening to music.
Meanwhile back at home,
"Yeah, she's in the hospital right now." I answered.
"Oh no. This is all my fault." Ken's mother starts to pace around.
"No it's not." I assure.
"Are you sure?" She asks.
"Of course." I say in a dead tone, "I've been telling you that it wasn't your fault for the past hour I've been here!"
She sighs a heavy sigh.
"Why did you do that to Sekai though? I'm just wondering. Why did you put her up for adoption?" I ask.
"I don't really feel like answering right now. I'm going to sleep." Ken's mother says and lies on the couch.
"You really did give birth to her…" I whisper.
"Did you say something?" She immediately sits up.
"Nothing." I sigh.
"Hey Suna, Doctor Sally just texted me and said that Sekai was staying the night at the hospital." Chun said running through the door.
"What?!" I stand up almost immediately.
"Why are we being so dramatic?" I ask sitting back down.
"I don't know." Chun laughs, "It's just a thing that we do."
"Should we go?" I ask.
"To make her feel better…I guess." Chun shrugs.
"We should buy her something then." Subaru said walking into the conversation.
"Like?" I asks
"I don't know flowers?" Subaru answers
"Like?" I repeat
"The new video game we were talking about, but never remembered to buy it." Chun answers
I was just listening to music. La la la…
Then when I open my eyes, I see THEM.
"Hey." I sit up and turn the music off.
"Aren't you bored?" Ken asked.
"No." I answer
"We brought flowers!" Subaru handed a vase filled with random flowers.
"You didn't have to…" I say as he hands me the vase.
Something's wrong with me… Why am I acting like this?
"Hey can you get Doctor Sally in here? I have to ask her something…" I say.
"Sure thing." Subaru said.
"Suna-san, can you put this on the table over there?" I ask pointing at the table far away.
"Oh yeah." He said and took it away.
"What is it, Sekai?" Doctor Sally asked.
"I have a question… Wait, you know what never mind."
I have control over myself. I seem fine. Hm… It's all their fault… that must be why….
"Wait!" I shout before she leaves.
"What?" She asks.
"When do I take my medication again?" I ask.
"Um…In about 30 minutes…" She puts her finger on her lips.
She then leaves.
"Are you tired?" Chun asks.
"Not really…" I answer.
"You just wanna get out don't you?" Suna smiles as if he read my mind.
"Well, that's true. I do want to get out." I reply.
"It's too bad this had to happen to you on your birthday. I feel bad." Subaru frowned.
"Well, now we can watch you open your presents." Chun smiles.
"Um…What?" I tilt my head.
Did he just say presents?
"We all bought you around two or three presents."
"Uh…What?" I ask tilting my head a bit more.
"Yeah, no need to say it's not necessary, because it is. It's your birthday and we think after all those hard years, you need to celebrate it with people who care about you. So…MORE PRESENTS FOR YOU!" He smiles.
A man walks in with bags of presents and boxed that are wrapped.
My jaw just dropped.
"HOLY SNAP!" I shout.
I immediately sit up.
NO WAY! That's not appropriate!
Ha there Chun, I didn't say it's not necessary, I said it's not appropriate.
Seriously though! I don't need that! This is overwhelming!
"OH OH OH! Open mine first!' Ken shouts like a monkey and hands me a stack of his presents.
He looks at me, waiting for me to open his present with his big brown sparkling eyes and a GIGANTIC smile on his face.
Ok, here goes nothing…
I tear the wrapping paper off and it reveals a brown box. I take the top of the brown box off and it reveals more wrapping paper…
I look at him, and I see that same look on his face, except brighter, and glowing more than before.
I rip the wrapping paper off once again and it reveals another brown box. Hm…
I open the brown box and it reveals….
cake, from my birthday.
I just look at him, and the rest of the band also does.
"You don't want the cake? I'll take it!" He smiles even wider.
"Knock yourself out." I hand him the box.
If every present is going to be like this, I might as well tell them to return it to their rightful owners, meaning their stomach.
"Here open mine instead." Suna said handing his stack and sliding Kens stack off the bed.
I glare at him. Why am I glaring! It's not like I want presents!
I unwrap the wrapping paper and I see this box, with a laptop on the cover
"Shit. There's no way I can pay for this now…" I stare at it.
"Come on, you know you love it." He smiles teasing me.
"Truthfully I do, but I don't know how to pay you back and now I'm all mad!" I slap the pillow from behind me to my face.
"So that's what she's worried about?" Ken whispers into Suna's ear.
I can hear you…
"Don't worry about it. It's just a laptop, it's nothing." Suna assures.
"Says the guy who throws his money around. I don't call this nothing."
"Relax, you'll be able to pay me back in a different way." Suna rolls his eyes.
"Like how?" I ask.
"I don't know."
Then don't say that…
He's amazing. How'd he know I wanted this?
"Here, this goes along with it." Chun said handing me more boxes.
When I opened them, Ken's gift to me that follows the Laptop was 3 flash drives, Chun's gift was a camera, and Subaru's gift was a wireless mouse. Thanks guys.
I bit my bottom lip so I can stop smiling.
"You know you wanna smile." Chun teases.
"Come on. You have to smile at us some point." Suna said.
"Please." Subaru begs.
"You know you want to." Ken sang.
"Let me open the rest of my gifts." I say grabbing the next box.
"Oh that's mine." Chun said.
"We all did, like a package sort of thing. So here's the other part of the gift." Suna said handing one more box.
"Wait then what about Subaru-san and Ken-san?" I ask.
"We picked you a dress, while Chun picked the easy part, the shoes and others accessories." Ken rolled his eyes.
I open the box and I see these glossy strapped high heels. They are gorgeous, but I don't think I'll ever wear them. I'm more of a converse kind of person.
"Wow." I finally spoke.
They were around 3", but they looked like 5.
"How'd you know my shoe size?" I ask turning to the bottom of the shoe.
"Well you know how we went to the Haunted House and you lost your shoe?" Chun asked.
"But Converse has a different shoe scale don't they?" I ask.
"Kind of, if you are referring it in a different way." Chun said.
"You jerk!" I slap his arm playfully.
"Hey." He smiles.
Then I touch this white box. It had this beautiful pattern of it. I felt like I should just put it down and leave it alone, but the more I stared at it, I just had to open it.
"Open it." Subaru said.
When I took the cover off, I saw another heart. It was a locket just like the one I wear, but when I pushed on the trigger, it unravels four guys. I immediately drop it and my hands fly to my opened mouth.
It was beautiful. They were dressed up, the locket was just perfect, and it was overwhelming.
"Do you like it?" Chun smiles.
I nod my head in silence.
"It's beautiful." I whisper.
"Well it's all yours." Suna said as he put the necklace on behind me.
I get this warm glow in me. I suddenly felt really hot.
"Here! Open our gift!" Subaru smiles handing a rectangular box.
I open the box and I see this black dress sort of ruffles on the ends, and this black purse that goes with it.
"You guys…" I was speechless, "I don't think I'm ever going to wear this though…"
"Oh you will." Ken said as if he knew.
"This is so beautiful. I don't think-"
"It's just for you, so only you can wear it. You're gorgeous, so you deserve a gorgeous dress, ok? Stop saying you're never going to wear this, because you will. And if you refuse, we'll force you." Chun assured.
"I don't know what to say." I look at each and every one of them.
"I think we deserve a, 'thank you.'" Suna said raising his eyebrows.
"No, you guys were the ones who bought me this when you know you don't have to, so I don't think I need to say it." I said crossing my arms.
"Fine, you should at least smile." Chun says.
"I don't think so." I say calmly.
By the time it was a minute before midnight, I opened my last present with them.
I lean against the wall, "I think I'm going to get a paper cut if I open anymore." I say.
They just smile.
I just pass out.
"Move. Stop it."
I GOT YOU THERE DIDN'T I? I SURE DID….
I JUST HEARD MY NAME IN A CONVERSATION….
