It's been a week since I moved into my new dorm.
"Where is my roommate?"
"Ayahh, Hyun Oh..." Ken pushes me. "Stop being so crabby, he'll come soon!" Ken drinks the bottle of beer and pulls me close. "Now, I want to warn you."
"Warn me about what?"
"I heard there's a student who fucks with any guy."
"WHAT THE HELL?!" I pulled away, moving the chairs and pushing everything back. "Don't say that!!"
Ken laughs, "I'm kidding! Hahaha!! You thought it was true?!"
"No, that's gross!" I yelled. People looked. Ken shushes me and pulls me to sit down again.
"Yahh....don't be scared of LGBT peeps. They're not going to hurt you." Ken chuckles, "Unless you hurt one of them, hooo-haha, it's going to be a big fight."
I shook my head. "It's not that. I just think...sex is gross...."
Ken shook his head, "I can help you find a girl, I got numbers~"
"No, I don't really want any." I cough and bring out my watch. "I better go, I need to check with the dorm master if my roommate arrived."
"Kay, bye." Ken waves.
The dorms aren't far, I did notice something...
A guy with a flat brim hat, a blue and white hoodie zip up and glasses waited outside.
I stood close, he was waiting and I was waiting. The doors were locked.
He didn't look at me nor did I.
I looked at him.
"You're a first year, right?" He puts his hands in his pocket.
I nod. He grins and leans on the wall. "I'm a second year student. You must be my new roommate."
I grabbed my phone, "Tsk..." He can't be my roommate, we're in different years as students and...I don't like him.
The door opens, the dorm master comes out. "Oh!" He chuckles. He looks like those guys who are...drag queens....
"You must be Kim Hyun Oh!" The dorm master chuckles. "You're such a cute boy, ohhh~! I read your file, you have such good grades from high school~!!" He began to pinch my cheeks.
"Argh-!" I tried to push him. The guy with the glasses started to laugh at me. My cheeks burned red.
"Dorm Master, I think you should stop-hahaha!" The guy laughed harder and slaps lightly at the dorm master's back.
"I'm sorry, for korean boys, they're so handsome!" The dorm master gently holds the guy's shoulder. "Hidemi, you should grab your belongings. Mr. Kim, would you help your roommate?"
'...would you help your roommate?'
Are you serious? A second year being my roommate?
I nod without answering, I took the bags and the suitcase. The guy with glasses named Hidemi, smiled at me. "Thanks, dub."
Wow...he spoke in English...
"You...you know how to speak English?" I asked Hidemi.
He chuckles at me and nods. "Born and raised right from America, yep."
He's from America?! He speaks perfect Japanese AND English?!
Hidemi begins to laugh at me, "You should see your face, you looked surprised-haha!"
"I am-!" I began to pout. "I didn't know if my roommate would get here, it came to be you...a second year transferred student from America...."
"Pft, I'm not a transferred student." Hidemi smiles, "I went to a high school here in Tokyo, surprise surprise!" He begins to laugh, even the dorm master.
"Hidemi Hidemi Hidemi..." The dorm master slow dies down the laughter. "Your things will arrive shortly, right?"
"Yes." Hidemi nods, "I need the key to our dorm room,"
"That's right," The dorm master claps his hands. "Here's your room and I'll see if I can get a key for you."
"But I already paid for the key-" Hidemi tries to talk back to the dorm master, but he left.
...why is he skipping away from us?
"You seem close to the dorm master..." I start to grab the key from my pocket. "...do you two know each other?"
Hidemi chuckles nervously. "Oh yeah..." He starts to scratch his head as I opened the door. "We actually dated."
"Eyy...." Hidemi waved his hand in front of my face. "...yo, I'm kidding. Haha." He's laughing nervously and started to bring his bags in the room. "Actually, the dorm master flirted with me at first."
"Really?" I rolled in his suitcase and other bags. "What happened afterwards?"
"Told him I'm not into guys or something like that, I don't know." He shrugs. He looks around the room and inhale the air. "You're bottom bunk?"
"Yeah..." I nod and brought his belongings to the empty drawer. "This is yours...the closet over there is yours, too."
"Nice." He starts to unpack. "When did you move in? Everything is perfectly neat." Hidemi begins to smile.
"Last week, I moved in early..." I watched him unpack.
"Really? Haha..." He turns around, "Since you're a first year, how old are ya?"
"I'm 18, just got out of high school..."
"What?!" Hidemi shouts. My body flinches. "You're 18?! Wow! I thought you were younger!"
"Do...do I really look young?" I questioned, I started to look at the ground. I'm starting to remember why Ken tells me to not drink beer with him.
"Heck yeah." Hidemi laughs, "I thought you were 15 year old kid who was too smart for this place!"
He thinks I'm smart....
"You look like my age though..." I sat down on the bed. He stops and chuckles.
"I'm just a year older than you. It's nothin' bad doe~" He speaks english. "Can you speak english?"
I shook my head. "I don't really know much words...I do...know what you're saying..."
"What grade did you get for english?" He grabs his suitcase and unzips it.
"C-minus..." I answered.
"Aw, your english can't be that bad." He smiles. "At least you know what I'm saying, right?"
He smiles and stands up to stretch. "Since it is 4 pm..." He checks his watch. "...let's just get along, I don't wanna cause trouble with ya." He pats my shoulder and walks into the bathroom with his baggie. "What?! No way! There's a bidet in here!!"
Ugh...I'm shocked to see how he's so...outgoing...
"Man..." Ken groans. "I want to warn you, if you get an older roommate..."
"Ken, I don't think I'll-"
"No-Shushhh!!" He places his finger on my lip. "No." He gulps down the liquid of beer. "If you get an older roommate, you'll get great pain."
"Yes!!" He yells. "Do you know how I felt when I was being controlled by my roommate?!" He's...somewhat...on the table and leaning against my will....
"No...I don't know how it felt-"
"OF COURSE YOU DON'T!!" Ken yelled loud. The owner of the restaurant looked over to us.
"Ken, calm down-!"
"NO, HYUN OH!" Ken jumps back to his seat, crying and holding his beer. "I brought a girl over and we were about to make hugs and start our marriage! BUT MY ROOMMATE CAME IN AND BARGED IN!!"
"Hugs and marriage???"
"HE KICKED HER OUT AND TOLD MEH THISS!!" Ken pulls me over and starts to whisper in my ear. "No girls ALLOWED!!!"
"Aw! What the fuck, Ken!!" I wiped my ear, Ken's sliva and leftover beer in his mouth came in my ear. Gross. "Calm down, Ken...geez, you need to stop drinking so-!!"
"AND YOU KNOW THE WORSE PART IS?!" Ken began to cry more. "HE TOLD THE DORM MASTER I BROUGHT A GIRL OVER AND I GOT KICKED OUT OF THE DORM!!"
"...that's...too strict, isn't it?" I washed my ears with a napkin. "Where did you go?"
"I lived off of a friend's place." Ken smiles.
What the fuck? He's back to normal.
I'm boiling inside because he was acting....that mother fucker....
Ken did warn me about the older students. Man, who knows what is going to happen.
Also I was hoping he wasn't going to show up...I wanted the room for myself.
Hidemi comes back from the bathroom. "Hey, what's your name again?"
"Kim Hyun Oh..."
"Do you mind if I call you by your first name?"
"For a first year student, you'll get confused with the rest." Hidemi laughs. "Names Jinki Hidemi, just call me by my first name."
"Hidemi..." I said it. It's weird. I never call anyone older than me by their first name...
"You're from South Korea?" He sits on my bed and looks over to me.
"I was born in Osaka," I answered. "And I moved here for high school."
Hidemi nods. "Tokyo is a fun place," He laid back on my bed.
We were quiet for a minute. Until...
"Wait!" He sat right back up.
I flinch, "Wh-What?"
"If you moved here for high school...did you go to Rosebud High School or...?"
"I went to international high school..."
"AH! That explains things!" Hidemi slaps his leg. "I know all the schools around the area!"
"Oh yeah," Hidemi chuckles, "I visited most of my friends at the schools to see how they're doing."
I nod. Would it be weird if we met in high school? Yes, it would.
Hidemi got up from my bed and began to unpack again. "Are you going out?"
"Yeah, probably." I answered.
"Okay, here's the game plan." He turns himself around to face me.
He points his finger, "One, if we both go out and one of us go separate, we both have to come home together."
"Wait, come home together-"
"Two, if we are going to out together with friends, we have to go home together."
"Three, if one of us wants to go home and you have the key, you have to give it to me so I can go home and you can come back with the doors unlocked." Hidemi explained. Maybe too much, this didn't even make sense. "Deal?"
"Sure...." I'm not even listening. "The dorm master will give you a key, isn't he?"
Hidemi shakes his head, "I have a bad vibe he's not going to give me a key." Hidemi turns himself around and begins to unpack again. "I'm gonna stay and wait for my stuff. You can go out."
I stand up and head for the door, "Don't make a mess, please..."
"Yeah, I won't! Don't worry about it." He waves good bye.
Out the door and shut it. I laid my back on the door.
...somehow...I have a weird vibe about him. Hidemi...that name....
...isn't the name a girl's name? I heard it before. It just sounds weird.
It's not just that either. I just...I just feel he's going to do something...bad to me. Or something like that.
I also think he's gay.
