[One-shot] School Days  
Title: School Days 
Author: shiroikazex
Pairing: Hikaru x OC
Genre: Romance
Rating: PG 
Summary: A shoujo manga story of class clown vs class president. Loosely based off Myojo's school yard shoot. 
Note: This is basically one of my "Saki writes shoujo manga" fics xD It's ridiculous but well, enjoy~ And I wrote this on twitter so there is some tense inconsistency between the two parts cos I wrote it on two different days. Anyway!


She jogs to the back of the school building and indeed finds him leaning against the wall casually. Panting and tired and sweating from running around the campus looking for him, she storms round the corner. He looks up as she approaches.

"Yaotome!"

He stands up straight and she is taken aback by his neat uniform--a rarity for his tie to ever be properly done up and his shirt to be properly buttoned. He looks almost decent. She shakes her bewilderment from her head and crosses her arms.

"Inoo-kun said I might find you here."

"Well," he grins cheekily. "He's right, isn't he?"

"Rehearsals just ended. It's almost graduation, Yaotome. Why can't you be cooperative for once?"

He shrugs and looks down at her with an intense gaze. Suddenly the fact that they are alone crashes on her like an avalanche and she involuntarily takes a step back.

It wasn't like she /liked/ him or anything. Being class president means that she has to make sure everyone shows up for everything. And him being the popular rebel means that he has been the source of all her pain through the year. She doesn't even know why he's popular. He looks like a skinny squirrel with his uneven teeth and scrawny frame. His jokes are lame. His homework is always late. His--

He takes a step forward to re-establish their proximity and she swallows hard.

"At least you're finally wearing your uniform properly."

"Do you like it?"

"It looks ridiculous."

He grins at her again and reaches to loosen his tie. Her eyes immediately go to the wall but she couldn't help when they flit back for a moment to watch his hands undo the top two buttons of his shirt. He catches her eye and his grin grows even wider.

"Is this better?"

"You. Are. Impossible. Have you ever thought that since we're leaving the school in barely a month, you could have a bit of heart and not give me headaches every single day?"

"I only have a month left to annoy you," he sticks his hands back into his pockets. "I'm treasuring the last few times I get to see your angry face."

She scowls at him.

"I think it's cute when you're angry," he suddenly smiles.

No. Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong.

"Shut up. Why did you skip rehearsals today? This is important."

"I dunno, felt like it."

"This is not the time for you to be a spoiled brat, you know that? Everyone is putting their hearts into this--"

"It's just a ceremony right."

"You--You don't get it, do you?"

He raises an eyebrow again.

"I do, I just don't see the point of having rehearsals so many times. We'll be fine."

"You'll be surprised. Can you promise me that you'll be at the final rehearsal? Please?"

"I'll think about it."

"Yaotome," she warns, only to be answered with a smirk again.

"Yes ma'am."

"Right. I'll see you--"

He takes another step forward and she suddenly forgets how to breathe as she is faced with the full glorious--glorious? Disturbing more like--view of his open shirt. She jerks her face away when she feels his fingers trailing along her cheek. The trail burns.

"There was a small leaf on your hair," he mumbles near her ear, sending shivers down her spine. She backs away and glares--tries to, at least.

"That was out of line."

"I'll go to final rehearsal. Heck I'll even go as a model student, on one condition."

"What?"

In one sweeping motion he has her trapped between his arms, against the wall of the building. Her heart stops and her breath catches in her throat as his leans in closer, and closer, until she could feel the heat radiating off him and his lips right by her ear.

"Be my girlfriend."

There is a momentary pause as she processes the question. Then it hits her like a monster truck and she nearly collapses.

"N-No! That's insane!"

"Why not?" He pulls back with a frown. "I'm serious."

"I don't like you--not in that way!"

"Oh, but you at least like me right?"

"Yes. No. I mean--"

He cuts her sentence off by leveling his gaze with hers. For the first time in her life she sees his serious face. At least, that's what she thinks it is. There are no traces of his usual carefreeness and playfulness.

"I like you. I really do. Go out with me."

"...You have got to be joking."

"I'm not, fuck, I just said that I'm serious!"

"You expect me to believe you after you made it your goal of the year to basically annoy me to hell and back?!"

Much to her surprise, he bursts out laughing at her statement. Now she's angry. Now she wants to kick him hard and dump him in the dumpster behind the school and--

"You are so dumb."

"Excuse me?"

"I said you are so dumb!"

"I am this close to getting into Waseda, you--"

"I spent the entire year trying to catch your attention the only way I know how, you idiot," he ruffles the top of her hair and she swats him away. "I mean I did it for fun at first but... It got addicting. I liked the attention you were giving me."

"Y-You are so deluded."

He looks at her with the softest smile she has ever seen on anyone's face and she gulps.

"I... This is insanely sudden. I can't agree."

"Take your time, I just want to know that you'd try."

"We have a month left here, Yaotome, I don't think--"

"We have 4 years actually."

"Eh?"

"I always knew Waseda was your first choice so I applied there too."

Her jaw dislocates.

"What?!"

"Mmhmm. I was gonna go to Sophia with Keito but... Just say it now that you won't ignore me in university and let me have one chance--one date with you and I'll go to the final rehearsals."

"You. Are. Insane."

"I get told that sometimes," he grins sheepishly. "So? Your answer, class president? For the sake of the class and a smooth graduation..."

"...I can sue you for harassment."

"You won't."

"Are you calling me a liar?"

"No, I just know you wouldn't. You like me."

"No I don't."

"You're not running away right now, are you?"

Her cheeks flush red and it seems to egg him on. He brings his lips to her ear again.

"One date."

"F-Fine."

He lets out a long breath by her ear and she flinches. The moment he takes his hands off the wall, she swings a punch at his chest and the contact is satisfyingly solid. He stumbles back and coughs.

"You. Bastard."

"You promised me a date," he struggles to catch his breathing. "Don't forget that."

"I didn't promise anything."

"Just one date! How bad could it be?"

"You can't just use me like that!"

"I'm not! I honestly want to go out with you! Jeez, woman, what do you want me to do to convince you?"

She honestly doesn't know. She covers her burning face with her hands and stands there waiting for him to tell her it's a joke. A graduation parting kind of joke. A last big finale prank. She isn't going to give in. She won't.

A long moment passes and nothing happens. She peeks through her fingers, only to be greeted by the sight of him not being there. Shocked, she turns around--

--and is grabbed by the shoulders with his lips crashing down on hers.

The world stops for a second, a minute, a few hours maybe. Her knees give way and he catches her by her waist, pulling her in closer while keeping a hand on her cheek. 

She doesn't find it in herself to push him away. Because nothing has ever felt this good. Adrenaline is still pumping through her veins when they break apart, leaving a hint of mint on her tongue which she is sure was not there previously. She forces herself to stand, though he keeps an arm around her.

"Was that enough to convince you?" he pants. "Was it? I'm out of ideas, pres, please. Just give me one chance."

"I don't--"

"Just say yes already!"

"Yes! Fine!"

He sighs dramatically in relief and engulfs her in a tight embrace.

"Thank you, kamisama. This was harder than the Waseda entrance exam."

(A/N: Sorry for the tense inconsistency from here on! I wrote this on a separate day and kinda forgot what tense I was using previously so ;;)



Upon the head teacher's dismissal, she heaved a sigh of relief and glanced over at the two rows of chairs her class occupied. Full attendance. Now that he kept his end of the promise, she could no longer run from hers. She quickly directed her gaze to the front of the hall when their eyes met.

He was watching her. Accusingly. But also smugly. And she wanted to wipe that smug look right off his face but she wasn't quite sure how, just yet.



"Shall we get something to eat?"

"Yeah, that's--"

"Sorry girls," an arm was draped over her shoulders and she nearly fell as she was pulled close to the owner. "I'm borrowing her for this afternoon, ne? Gomenachai!"

"S-Sure, Yaotome-kun."

"Arigatou."

By the flush that came over her friends' cheeks, she didn't even need to look at him to know that he had on his signature grin. He loosened his hold on her and suddenly there was a voice near her ear saying "I'll meet you round the back. You know here." To worsen the shivers she got from his breath tickling her cheek, he tucked a lock of hair behind her ear before jogging towards his group of friends, laughing at his antics and probably laughing at her too.

"You have some explaining to do."

"Shut up."



He didn't look up from where he was squatting, absentmindedly poking at a trail of ants on the ground with a stick. She swallowed.

"Well, I'm here."

"Mmhmm. After bailing for 5 times."

"S-Sorry."

"I don't get it," he mumbled, and she wasn't used to him being so tame, so... vulnerable, if that was the right word. "You promised."

"Well I wanted to make sure you really showed up before we... go out. You can't get the better end of this deal--"

"I don't break promises."

"..."

She suddenly felt guilty that she ever thought about breaking her end of the deal.

"Am I that undesirable a guy in your eyes?"

"...No."

"Then why," he threw down the stick, rising to his full height in front of her with his hands in his pockets. He looked down at her and she couldn't find it in herself to meet his eyes. "Have you been avoiding me for the past month?"

"I-I'm just not ready for this?"

"Did you think by 'go out' I meant 'have sex'?"

"No! You're sick."

He grinned.

"Just kidding. But seriously though, you have to pay for bailing on me."

"I am not doing that stuff."

"Will you stop jumping to conclusions?" He barked out a laugh and, taking advantage of her momentary rage, cornered her against the wall and trapped her like their previous encounter.

"S-Stop. I didn't agree to this. I said one date not--"

"Relax, what kind of person do you take me for?"

"Did you seriously just ask that?"

He cleared his throat.

"Anyway, I want a kiss as compensation."

"...okay."

She closed her eyes and waited expectantly, though when nothing came she looked at him quizzically.

"I want a kiss from you. That means you'll have to do this," and upon saying that he promptly closed his eyes. She looked at him straight on. She looked at him and she couldn't look away because suddenly everything on his face was perfect. The angle of his nose and the shape of his lips. Everything.

"I'm waiting."

"S-Sorry."

She leaned in nervously--how did people do this anyway?--brushing her lips against his for the briefest of moments and even so it left her burning. He frowned.

"I barely felt that--"

"WILL YOU PLEASE JUST GET THIS STUPID DATE OVER AND DONE WITH."

"...I'll get it from you later. Come on."

He grabbed her hand and pulled her through the crowded courtyard out of the school gates. She pretended she was invisible. It really didn't work.



It was an interesting afternoon. Nothing was planned and they just went around the city, hopping on random trains to random places and doing random things. Sharing an ice cream, eating snacks, going shopping (where he bought them matching phone charms that she swore to the gods she would never use)...

At some point in time she decided to stop treating this as an obligation to get him to show up at graduation and actually enjoy the afternoon. Time passed a lot more easily that way. He wasn't a bad guy, she figured. And whenever his large hand sought hers after paying for things or walking apart for a while, the feel of it was oddly comforting. Her hand sat perfectly in his.

They wound up back in their neighbourhood near sunset, and headed for the river upon his suggestion to watch the sunset there.

"I've watched it from here a billion times," she sighed as the sun crawled down towards the horizon. "It's beautiful."

"I watch it from my balcony."

"Wow, you can see it clearly from there?"

"Yeah, you could come over some time."

"We only have one date."

He shrugged.

"We could have more."

She briefly considered the possibility.

"Listen, Yaotome-kun--"

"Wait, don't talk, watch."

And that effectively shut her up for the next 10 minutes or so as they watched the sunset in silence. Somewhere within that time span his fingers found hers again and they sat with their hands joined as the sun sank below the horizon.

"...You were saying?"

She took a deep breath.

"I can't remember what I was going to say. Never mind."

He chuckled and flicked her on the forehead.

"Ow!"

"I had fun. We should go out again sometime."

"About that--"

"Did you have fun today?"

"...Yeah. I did. Honestly, I did."

"And that's all that matters, right? Just... I dunno, enjoy the moment. You don't always have to be so uptight about the future. If you keep thinking about how the sun's gonna disappear, you won't enjoy the beauty of the sunset."

"Wow, that's deep."

"Something my gramps once said."

"Didn't think you could come up with it."

"Pres, you can afford to give me a little more credit. I did get into Waseda."

She laughed, and he joined in a heartbeat later.

"...Shall we go, then?" He got up after a while of sitting by the darkening riverside, and offered his hand. "It's getting dark. I'll walk you home."

"Okay."



At the corner in front of her house, he stopped her and gripped her wrist.

"What?"

"You owe me something, remember?"

"Can't I just buy you a drink or something."

He pouted--she couldn't decide if it was cute or--and shook his head.

"...Close your eyes."

She took a step forward and tiptoed up to press her lips to his--with an assertion that surprised herself. But it was nice, she reckoned, after the amazingly fun afternoon out. She would lying if she said that the kiss contained no emotions.

And it got a lot nicer when he slipped his arm around her waist and responded to the kiss slowly.

The sound of a bicycle bell broke them apart. She looked around at the familiar bicycle of the grocery store uncle near her house and cringed.

"Someone you know?"

"A neighbor."

"Ou-ch. Goody-two-shoes is in trouble now."

"It's all your fault anyway."

"If I remember correctly, you were the one who kissed me," he grinned.

"This discussion is over."

"I'll see you in a few days then, for the ceremony."

"Yeah, I guess."

"And after that? We could go to the beach together. I can teach you to surf--"

"We did agree on one date."

"That was for the deal. I'm asking you out as... just a guy now. No strings attached. Of couse, apart from the fact that I'm crazy about you."

Her ears burned.

"...We'll see."

"Don't make me kiss you again. I know you'll change your mind."

"Goodnight, Yaotome-kun, it was a nice day."
