"Not with you, random one." Senpai uttered under his breath, trying to keep from laughing at his Kohai's antics.

"Why nooooooot~? I'm so confused...?" Kohai replied, racking her brain in an attempt to crack her Senpai's enigmatic demeanor.

"Why are you confused, Kohai?" Senpai asked, trying to achieve the same goal that his Kohai was trying to reach with him.

"I don't even know anymore..." she struggled to hold back a giggle.

I give up. I'll just roll with it. It usually works. She conceded.

"Soooo~!" She continued on awkwardly, her smile remaining plastered onto her face, "What now, Sensei?"

Her Sensei walked over to the window and gazed out, unsure of how to answer. "I know not, Kohai. This altercation is bringing old memories back to me." He couldn't help but smile in unison with his young Kohai.

"Well, now you're being all fancy with your words. Are you trying to sound like a professional anime actor or something? Like ones who looooove and worship Shakespeare?" She chuckled, glad to see his smile.

"Well... I can't agree nor disagree with that. If there's anyone who loves Shakespeare, it's me,but I am leagues below any actual anime character. My impressions are not that good. " he said, glancing back and shoving his hands in his pockets.

"Okay okay I get it 'professional anime guy'- chill~!" She paused, gesturing quotation marks with her middle and index fingers on each hand "you can drop the fancy act though..." she muttered coyly, her cheeks puffing out as she spoke.

"Well, if you insist." He said, the afternoon sun illuminating his back as he turned to amusedly look on at his Kohai.

She sighed as she randomly fell to the floor, rolling onto her face, "Ughhhhhh I haaaaaate school! I don't wanna go tomorrow senseeeeeiiiii~!" She whined, but they were muffled.

"No one ever does." he said with a soft chuckle. He knelt down next to his Kohai and playfully stroked her hair.

She pouted, "Can you go for me and take notes then...?" She asked, glancing at him with innocent, puppy, yet doll-like eyes.

Once again, her Senpai chuckled. He cocked his head and met her doll-like eyes. "I'm afraid not. Those days are behind me, and no puppy-dog eyes will make me go back. "

"Whaaaaaaat~? Why not?" She whined, dropping the act and letting the floor meet her chubby face. "Pleeeeeeasseeeeee fill in for meeeee!" She got up suddenly, shaking him furiously.

Senpai covered his mouth to stifle his laughter. It always pleased him when she worked herself into such a fervor. "Because I've done my time in that hell." he said, bellowing with a hearty laugh.

She flinched as she stood up, bringing her fist down onto his head, showing no mercy, "Yes I'm suffering meanie!" Her cheeks were red with anger and her pout remained. She turned away and huffed.

He laid his hands on her shoulders and leaned down so that he could be at eye level with her, along with the hidden purpose of getting his Kohai out of striking position. "I know exactly how you feel. But I'm not quite sure what I can do...legally... to assuage those pains. " He said, furrowing his brow at her and cocking a grin.

She huffed, "You can phone the school, pretend to be my big bro or something and then say I'm ill..." she thought of a plan, smiling mischievously.

"Oh, sweet little Kohai. I tried that when I was there. Believe me, they're smarter than that. It wouldn't end well for either of us." he said, his eyes beaming as he playfully tossed a tuft of her hair out of her face.

"Hey hey! I will FORCEFULLY make myself ill if I have to! Who said I was gonna be lying~?" She smirked triumphantly. "Plus, it's way better at home anywaaayyy~!"

Her Senpai sighed and put his open palm over his face. "As sad as I am to say, I've tried that too. Let's put it this way... Thanks to me, there's nothing that those teachers haven't seen. You're just gonna have to grin and bear it."
