Thank you Keroanne-san for pointing out my mistake. I realized it immediately after you had said something, a wonder how I hadn't caught it earlier X3.
Also Thank you as my first reviewer!
Her Eyes Chapter 2: Mutual Friends
Saki walked slowly down the now deserted hall, it was late after school and she hadn't had the chance to serve her "punishment" as of yet, she sighed thinking of all the work waiting for her; why couldn't their sensei be a little more understanding? Saki's thoughts on the matter stopped as she heard a deep rumble from outside the window, and momentarily paused to look out at the sky.
"Oh, I didn't bring my umbrella." She murmured to herself realizing it was going to rain. "This is why I should never skip the morning weather report." She chided before continuing to her destination.
Yuuka leaned over the desk she was seated at, Kechime-sensei left an hour ago and never came back. She was starting to think that he had just abandoned her there. But she was too scared to get up and leave, plus the other student who was supposed to be here, she failed to remember who they were, hadn't even shown up yet. Yuuka sat for another ten minutes before standing, she moved towards the door but stopped when she heard it open.
"I wasn't trying anything I swear!" She yelled before seeing who walked in. She had her eyes screwed closed but at the sound of light giggling she opened them cautiously, her eyes widened slowly as she saw the bent over form of Saki. She blushed furiously at the thought of how much she had just embarrassed herself in front of the girl she liked. Smooth move.
Saki had finished laughing and straightened, "I forgot you were also serving this "detention" as well Nakamura-san," she said.
"O-oh, yeah well, I kind of messed up so..." She shrugged, "I'm surprised that you actually got into trouble..." Yuuka mentioned, her heart hammering in her ears with every word. I'm alone after school in a deserted classroom with SAKI! She squealed mentally at the thought.
"Hmmm, nobody is perfect." Saki said walking over to the desk Yuuka occupied previously. "What did Watanabe-sensei say we have to do?" She asked taking a seat.
"Oh well Kechime-sensei just left me to sit here so..."
"Kechime?" Saki questioned a small smile tugging at her lips, "is that a nickname for him?"
"Did I really say that out loud?" Yuuka asked embarrassed, Saki nodded her head. "Whoops, yeah I came up with it a while back." Yuuka answered rubbing the back of her head.
"It's rather fitting actually," Saki said thoughtfully moving further into the room, taking a seat at a desk close to the windows, "he does seem like the stingy type."
"Oh, yes I thought so too so I..ya know," she cleared her throat, "any-anyway, what were you doing before coming here?" Yuuka asked changing the subject.
"I had to complete extra work for the student council, and a few teachers also needed my help." The black haired girl replied staring out the window.
"I didn't know you were part of the student council." Yuuka said a bit shocked.
"I'm not." Saki said not looking away from the window.
Huh? Ok oh well...um don't let it get awkward Yuuka, think of something...something. "D-did, you watch that drama last night?" Yuuka blurted out, remembering what her other classmates would often say.
"No. I don't enjoy them." Saki answered disinterested.
"Oh, yeah..actually neither do I." Yuuka said sheepishly. Giving up she walked back over and took a seat behind Saki.
"I don't like the rain." Saki said suddenly. The other girl rested her head on Yuuka's desk and looked up at her, her hair slightly spilling over Yuuka's hands.
Nervously she began to ramble, distracting herself from the soft silk touch on her hands. "Really? I love the rain, only when it is cold though, I hate that humid rain like during the summer, it smells like fish and gets super hot-" Yuuka stopped there as she heard the other girl laugh again. "Was it something I said?"
"No..it's just, you were so serious about it, it was kind of cute." Saki said between laughs.
Cute..? She thinks I'm...cute. Yuuka threw her hands over her face, she could feel her face burning from the comment, it was all so embarrassing, she only hoped Saki hadn't noticed her flushed face.
"Did you bring an umbrella?" Saki asked bringing her back to the conversation.
"Huh?" Yuuka sat thinking for a moment. My umbrella.."AH! I forgot it! Look it's pouring! What an unlucky day!" Yuuka cried feeling hopeless. "If I can't get out of here, I won't be able to work."
"Oh my. I didn't know you had a job." Saki asked sitting up.
"Well..yeah I just...I work everyday and so today..." Yuuka mumbled.
"Every day?" She asked surprised
"Yes, every day."
"Even on weekends?" She continued
"Even on weekends."
"I see." The black haired girl replied falling silent momentarily. "What about holidays?"
"What about them?" Yuuka raised a brow at her.
"Do you work, I mean?" She clarified.
"Yes, most times I do, unless if the shop is closed." Yuuka answered amused, "everyday does generally mean everyday you know."
"Oh." Saki said softly slightly blushing. "How do you get away with it though?" Saki knew it must be difficult, their school like so many others didn't allow part-time jobs, and it was hard for a student to work in the first place without ducking teachers all the time.
"That is a good question," Yuuka sighed, "a lot of work and luck, which I seem to be running out of." A few connections with the principle doesn't hurt either, she added to herself.
"That sounds exhausting."
The two girls sat staring at each other for a while before Saki spoke again.
"How about we get out of here?" She asked while taking her cell out of her bag.
"What do you mean?" Yuuka started, watching the raven haired girl curiously as she typed on the key pad, "the attendance records haven't been done yet, and- what're you doing?"
Saki hit send and quickly put the device away, "Don't worry about it, someone else will take care of that for us." She said standing up giving Yuuka a devious smile. "I also so happen to have access to a rather large umbrella for two." She added moving over to the door. "Would you be interested in accompanying me?"
"D-definitely!" Yuuka replied a little too eagerly, "uh, I mean sure," she covered up trying to sound nonchalant.
Saki laughed lightly and the other girl's antics. "Then let's go."
"OK, coming." Yuuka said quickly as she practically stumbled over herself to follow her. She couldn't help but to smile like an idiot, maybe today wasn't so unlucky after all.
Ta-da! Now I would love to talk, but now I must go on to the next chapter!
