I woke up and took the headgear off then pressed the power button. I sighed. I love gaming as much as my baka-aniki does, but I have school. He even said one time that I'm too absolute to be a gamer. Well, sorry to disappoint him that ever since I became an active gamer I defeated him in all games that he played. Every single one.
Since this is a game he created and he probably won't be playing it since duh, he's the one who created the game and it would be unfair.
I raised my arms and stretched.
After finishing my morning rituals, I decided to wear an oversized sweater and knee-length leggings and a pair of Timberlands. I tied my hair into a high ponytail and go to my dance studio.
As I entered the room, I was greeted by the massive mirror and the squeaky clean floor of the studio. I don't workout, jog or whatsoever. Dancing is my training regimen. I don't make my own choreography, but I study and dance to songs with choreography. Although I'm Japanese and idols that sing and dance aren't that fluent in Japan, the most reliable and safe dances that I can turn to is KPOP or something Thai. Sometimes I also do dances that Matt Steffanina make, but KPOP is my forte since when idols are new, the choreography they do is easy, but as they continue on, the dances that they do gets harder. And since there are many groups, I can get exhausted as long as I want to. I also acknowledge old groups or the disbanded ones because I'm not picky. Though I'm not much of a fan since the choreography is really my objective. After all, books, manga and anime are my addiction.
The first game I ever played since kid was Minecraft. It's not known much because the game was invented for like so many years ago so most likely many people already forgot the game since technology and modernization upgrades and something new always comes out. Because of that game, I attempted on trying to dig in from history to discover old and famed online games, thanks to internet I am so ever always successful. Besides, anything that has to do with computer I can easily hack myself through. In fact, I can collect confidential matters if I want to. But since I'm not the kind of person that pries into someone's business I never tried doing it.
I played three KPOP songs that I studied yesterday and danced it repeatedly until perfection for 3 whole hours.
I was beyond exhausted then turned the speaker off as I transferred the songs 'Not Today' by BTS, 'Never Ever' by Got7 and 'Monster' by EXO to the 'Finished Folder' in my flash drive.
As the heirs of the company, aniki and I was forced since kids to act like one. A Kawahara must be this, must be that, blah blah. Since I was 5 I'm already taking all sorts of advanced lessons (whether academics or not), packed schedule, and pressured homeschooling until middle school. The same happened to aniki. Since our parents aren't like those in the fictional books that are very perfectionist, strict, cold and controlling ones, they respect our decisions and not pressure us to always aim to be the first. Sometimes, it's okay to be in second but make sure not to fall back. That's what our parents believe. Now that I'm in high school, our parents enrolled me in a real elite-rate high school so hurrah! Goodbye homeschooling. This is my second year in Kunoragaoka High and I'm glad that I don't stand out that much because I love existing in the shadows, living in silence. I attend my classes and before my classmates and teacher knew it, I'm already gone first every dismissal. My seat is located as the nearest one from the door, which I'm really thankful for. I hope that this second year I won't be seated in a difficult location because our teachers assign our seats. During any exams or submission of home works, requirements, or whatever they call it, it's either I go as first or second, but I really don't care because I already know the lessons so sometimes I sleep in my classes. Since I only have one classmate who is sometimes in par with me during rankings, I don't mind that much when I come second or first because I'm too lazy to care.
There are times I hear gossips because there's this 'mysterious girl' that defeated Tadashi-sama often or there's an arrogant student who dare draw the attention of Tadashi-sama, well unfortunately I really don't care about gossips and rumors. The 'Tadashi-sama' that they were referring to is the student council president, who is in my class. I heard from my parents that their company is the first among business companies in Japan so I guess I'm not surprised to see that the heir of Tadashi Company is the student council president at his first year. I actually know nothing of my classmates since I live as an isolated individual and I'm used to homeschooling. Of course I don't have friends and I don't intend to make one easily because I'm cautious of fake people out there. I guess being a bookworm made my imagination wide and my heart stone, since I don't have experiences but count on whatever I read in books. But then I don't really care because I'm used to being alone and my books and fictional or anime characters as my 'never going to happen' friends. I'm afraid to step out of my comfort zone and introduce myself to the world since I'm afraid that I'll get angry if people might judge me, or my attitude, looks and such. I don't even know why my brother called me 'absolute'. Maybe it's because of my personality and my 'oh so serious' face, as my brother would call it.
Playing shogi, physical sports and online games made me easier to calculate and sometimes predict what's going to happen next. Strategy making and calculation is my expertise field. I can also know a person's body stats or condition just by looking or studying him/her. Aniki said that I inherited the ability from my mother since she was once a basketball manager of an elite basketball team with the duty to collect data and information about their opponents. Maybe that's also one of the reasons why I love basketball. My love for shogi came from my grandfather (Father's side), who was once a professional shogi player. He's already dead, though.
I guess I love these things because somehow I felt connection with my mother and father since they're not always around because of work so I never felt the bondage between parents and children. I experienced that from aniki, though. It's a bit different because he's my older brother but for me it's the same because he's the only one who is always there for me and for that, I'm grateful. He's also my one and only friend because I don't have one. Sometimes he's really annoying but I still love him. Though he knew nothing of my actual feelings, he knows that I'm always there for him.
I sighed as I went out of the studio.
