It was all I could hear as I sat at my desk with my head planted on my desk as my classmates talked among themselves on lunch break. Recently I had been going through a lot, some new, some old but there was also something more. Rising my head up from my desk I look out the window beside me. I've never been really the type of guy that was really sociable around others, I'm more of your laid-back type of guy. Sure people say I'm big for my age, I can't really help it so what, I'm a bit chubby and have a stomach! Life isn't always black and blue, here this is what it means to be human I guess you could say they are the trials of life. Unlike my best friend Zach Wilson, I'm not as braze and athletic as he is, bet if you saw us you would wonder why is that fat nerdy kid hanging around someone like Zach, who on the school's basketball team. Truth be told it doesn't really bother me anymore but I'll never forget that day I met him.
While out playing at the park when I was about age six, I would find myself alone playing with my ball. Until I see four shadows walk up behind me, who turned out to be a group of older boys who wanted to my ball.
"No, This my ball go find your own ball to play with" I would tell them.
They didn't like that response and walked up and punched me sending me falling backward onto the park's grass. As I laid on the soft grass before opening my eyes to a bloody nose as I could hear them laughing standing like towers above me.
"Look at him leaking"
"What baby, you wanna call to mommy" they would say to me.
One after another they would begin to kick me as if I were some piece of filth they were sent to destroy... and that's when I heard a voice.
"That's enough, leave him alone!" said a young blond-haired boy standing with the sun against his back. Quickly getting their attention, Zach looked like a true hero coming to save me. That day would result in a failure, but even after we got both our butts kicked by the bullies I'll never forget how Zach stood up for me that day. I only hoped that maybe one day I'll be able to repay him back for all that he has done for me. Zach also has two siblings as well Iris, who's on our school's student council, and Molly who's in middle school.
Taking a deep breath I begin to adjust my glasses on my face before we all suddenly hear our classroom door sent flying open.
"I've finally Found you PIG, you thought you could dare escape from me!" shouts a female suddenly sending chills over my whole body as I slowly start to turn head towards the doorway as I begin to hear her menacing walk into the classroom.
"It's impossible, how, how did get here" I would question myself as I stared down the female in fear. This female had snow-white hair, and bright blue eyes, and two large animal ears upon her head.
"WOLF," I thought to myself before I would begin to panic before quickly grabbing my bag and running to the front of the class bumping past the other students.
"How dare you, get your ass back here!" she would shout as she watches me take the other exit out of the classroom to the hallway. Quickly thinking she was on my tail I begin to head downstairs to the lower part of the school to head for the back exit.
The school's bell strikes signaling that it was time for classes to start again rings as I run into a crowded hallway of students. Doing my best to get past them quickly I make it out the back exit of the school and begin to try and make my way to a safe destination where she couldn't find me.
"Home or The Arcade?" I couldn't decide but I couldn't wait all day so I decided to head towards the arcade where I work after school. Despite my best efforts of making it all the way to the city, nearly draining myself out I decide to take a breather behind a corner.
My eyes open wide once more as I hear something landing nearby...
" Finally I've caught you" she would say out of frustration as reveals her very sharp fangs as I clinch up against the wall tightly.
Now you may be a little confused about how or why this woman may know me so perhaps I begin at the beginning.
FOUR DAYS AGO
I awake like I do every morning in my apartment, it is kind of small but I like it. I could see the shine into my room like always bringing life to my bookshelf as I lay there and watch the sunlight up every volume of my favorite books. My games are piled up neatly beside my computer alongside a few naughty DVDs and magazines but other than that everything seemed normal. Gazing up to the ceiling I see the poster of my all-time favorite idol of all time. Seeing her face just makes me feel all happy on the inside, "What's a guy like me got to do to get a girl like her in my life". Getting up from my bed I began to get dressed and ready for school. Until suddenly my toilet would begin to stop up like always just as I prepare to use it. It was ridiculous no matter how many times you plunge this thing it always re-stops itself as if it says do not use me.
"So this is how it's gonna be, you want a war this morning you got one," I say in anger I grab my plunger and go to town on the toilet. later I would make sure I had everything powered off as I begin to head out the door.
"Well good morning Kozaku," said the elderly neighbor as he stood outside of his doorway with his keys.
"Good Morning Mr. Thomas, " I would say as I would offer to help him as he seemed to have a lot of groceries and try to unlock the door to his apartment.
"Why thank you" he would say before giving me bags on top of bags, on top of bags.
"Now let me see which key was it again" he would say as he pulls the biggest clutch of keys I have ever seen, had to be almost two hundred keys on that one ring. I could feel my jaw drop as he began to try them one by one, pausing in-between each one before trying the next one. After about ten minutes of waiting, I began to realize this was gonna take all day and I needed to get to school, so carefully sitting his bags on the floor I began to assist him in opening the door to speed up the process. Finally, I get the door unlocked and quickly grab my things and head out the apartment complex as now I would already be a couple of minutes late.
Arriving at the school building I would spot Zach's older sister Iris with her fellow council members awaiting on the outside of the school building. As I watch Iris in her uniform she looked so amazing with her knee-high socks pressed against her smooth skin as her blond hair blew gently in the breeze.
BEEP!!! A car's horn blows at me from behind...
"Get The hell out of the way, can't you see some people have places to be" shouted the impatient driver as I began to hurry across the street to the school's campus. As I walked onto the campus the student council would begin to turn their attention towards me.
"Late again Rendellwood?" Iris would say before placing her hands on her hips and taking a deep sign before gazing upon me. I could only look in disappointment as well, shortly after Iris would be the one to escort me to the office to get a late pass before escorting me to class. Senpai was amazing, she's never late, she's nice and gets along with almost all of the students. I've had a crush on Zach's sister for the longest of times, I used to visit them a lot in the past even spending the night over their house while their mother was home. Heading up the hallway I would just watch her as she walked heading towards the stairs. As she headed up the stairs I watched her hips begin to rock back in forth as she walked up the stairs.
"Stop daydreaming, and come along" she would look back and tell me as I waited at the bottom of the stairs.
"Right," I would reply as I followed her up the stairs and headed towards my classroom. As she walked off I could only hope that maybe one day I could ask her out but then again there would be no way to tell how Zach would be with me asking out his big sister. The school that day went like any other I must say however once I left school that day I proceeded to head downtown to the city district to go to work. The overcast skies made it a great day for a walk so it wasn't that bad going to work that day. Once I arrived at the arcade I was always so excited as the entrance was one of my favorite parts about this place. Walking onto the entrance mat would trigger the 8bit theme song to the arcade as you're greeted by the employee at the entrance desk.
"Yo look who's on time just like always" replies Andy before giving me a fist bump of luck to start the day. Andy was a bit of a slacker, never really tucks in his shit, and likes to stay off of his feet as much as possible so that one of the reasons he's at the front entrance because customers can't see the ways he's dressed behind the desk wall.
