(Private) Chocolate for a friend

Post by Nayumi Tachibana on Thu Feb 14, 2013 6:40 pm

Nayumi carefully walked through the hallway of the boys' dorms, holding a small, square box of chocolates in her hands. She was afraid that someone would see her and get mad at her for being in the wrong building, but so far, the entire dorm seemed almost deserted. The girl couldn't exactly guess why, but she figured that maybe most boys were out with their girlfriends... or something. Well, it didn't really matter. She wasn't going to be there for long. As soon as she did what she went there to do, Nayumi would be out of there, before anyone had the chance to tell her anything about it.

It didn't take long for her to find the right door. After all, the dorm wasn't really all that big, and all rooms were properly labeled with names, so finding the sign that said 'Taizai Hikari' wasn't difficult at all. The girl nervously raised her hand and carefully knocked a few times, then stepped back.

Taizai hears a knocking at his door that takes away from his studies.

I wonder who that could be...I wasn't expecting company today.

He walks over and opens the door up to see it is Nayumi. He looks slightly surprised at her visit. After all the last time they were together didn't end too well.

"H-Hey Tachibana-san..."

"Um... you can still call me Nayumi... If you want..." the girl spoke, a bit turned off by his formal approach. Was he still mad at her about what happened yesterday? Well, he had a good reason to be! She practically chased her first guest away for practically no reason! The least she could do was apologize, and hope that the chocolate she would gift him would make him forgive her. "Um..." she blushed a bit and turned her head away for a second before looking into Taizai's eyes again, wanting to appear as sincere as possible. "I'm really sorry for chasing you off yesterday... I shouldn't have done that... Please forgive me..." Nayumi said quietly.

"It isn't your fault. I hugged you after you told me not to touch you."

He smiles softly as he motions for her to enter.

"Please come in Nayumi."

Nayumi shook her head and entered the room. "No, it's really not your fault... I know you were just trying to help me, but... I just don't feel very comfortable when people touch me. I'm sorry..." the girl spoke as she took off her shoes and her jacket, revealing the white shirt of her school uniform underneath. Without really being invited to do so, Nayumi placed the jacket on the bed and sat down next to it, still holding the box of chocolates in her hands.

"Well in any case I forgive you."

He hangs her jacket up by the door and sits next to her.

"So why do you have chocolates? Did someone give them to you?"

Nayumi shut her eyes tightly, realizing that she quite literally forgot all about the chocolates, even though they were the reason she went to Taizai's room in the first place. She blushed a little, then turned her eyes towards her friend again and handed the box to him. "Um... T-they're actually for you... Y-you know... For St. Valentine's day..." Nayumi said quietly, trying to find the overwhelming embarrassment.

He looks at her with surprise on his face.

"R-Really? For me? Thanks, you didn't have to."

Wow...I've never been gifted chocolates by somebody other than Hitomi. Am I really that close to her?

He smiles as he accepts her gift.

Nayumi's eyes opened in a pleasant surprise when she saw the boy accept the box of chocolates. "I know I didn't have to... But I really wanted to! You're my friend, aren't you, Taizai?" she asked playfully, with most of her nervousness gone. Now that being rejected was no longer among her concerns, the girl could finally relax again.

"Of course...I am glad to have you as a friend Nayumi."

He places the chocolates on his night stand before looking back over at her.

"So did you get that homework done? The one that required the book you left."

"The... Homework? Oh, right... Um, I think so..." she said and looked down. She didn't like it very much, but the harsh truth was that Nayumi wasn't exactly the best student at Yamaku. It wasn't entirely her fault - skipping school for more than two years would make anyone fall far behind. Under normal circumstances, she wouldn't have even been allowed into high school, but the people who rescued her six months ago decided not to add to her already quite severe mental trauma by sending her to a school with younger kids. Unfortunately, that decision had a really unfortunate side effect, and most of the stuff Nayumi was expected to learn seemed way too foreign for her to understand. She truly did her best, but that was just barely enough to not fail her classes.

"If you ever need help I can try my best. I can't guarantee it will help but it'd be nice to have company while doing the work."

He sounds sincere in his offer to help her.

Maybe we can become closer through that and I can see her prosthetics without messing up.

"Eh? R-really?" the girl asked and turned towards her friends. Nayumi was way too shy to ask for explanation when she didn't really understand something in class, partially because of her introverted nature, but mostly because of the fact that she hardly understood anything at all. Maybe having someone her age explain it to her instead wouldn't be so bad after all.

He nods politely.

"Of course! But like I said, I'm not perfect so I can't guarantee it will help all that much."

"It'll be okay! Trust me, I could really use all the help I can get!" the girl said honestly, without being too bothered by the fact. True, she would have really liked to do better at school, but even if she couldn't do it after all, it wasn't going to be the end of the world. Nayumi leaned back against the wall and put her legs up on the bed, then looked at Taizai with gratitude in her eyes.

"Okay, just stop by whenever you'd like. I'm always here after school...well usually I am."

He chuckles softly as he relaxes next to her as well.

Last time we sat like this I messed up, I ca't do it again.

"Thank you" Nayumi said softly and looked back at Taizai. So, having friends wasn't so bad, after all... For the first time in many years, the girl actually felt optimistic about the future.

"You're welcome Nayumi."

He sighs contently as he feels the stress from their last talk get lifted off of his shoulders.

The girl closed her eyes and sighed. She could tell by Taizai's voice that he wasn't completely satisfied with how their previous conversation had ended. Besides, he had offered to tutor her, which was... honestly, Nayumi already lost count of how many times he had saved her without really expecting anything in return. There was only one thing that he asked of her - to see her arms. After all he had done for her, the girl had to do something to return her debt, at least partially. Besides, she wouldn't lose anything - the boy already knew that her arms were artificial anyway. Slowly, Nayumi took her gloves off, then pulled the sleeves of her shirt up to her elbows. After that was ready, she finally found the courage to open her eyes again. "Um... I know they look scary, but... You asked to see them, so I..." she said quietly and extended her arms forward so that Taizai could take a closer look.

He examines her arms and notices that they weren't prosthetics at all but instead cybernetic arms.

This is so cool...a real life robot!

"Nayumi...this is...I don't know what to say."

He continues admiring her arms before looking back at her in amazement.

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" Nayumi yelled out, almost in a panic, and quickly rolled her sleeves back down, then grabbed one of her gloves and began putting it on nervously. "I know they're really hideous, I do! I just... You wanted to see them, and that's why... I'm so sorry, I really didn't want to creep you out!" she kept apologizing while desperately trying to put her damn glove on and hide the things she was ashamed of once more.

"No...I think they are cool. Honestly!"

He tries to calm her down but can't think of any good ways. He decides to hold her cheek softly to calm her down.

"Hey...it's going to be okay. I promise."

Nayumi pulled away as soon as he attempted to touch her face. No, she wasn't ready to risk exposing the most disfigured part of her body yet. She was probably never going to be. The girl looked down and shook her head when she heard Taizai's comment about her arms being 'cool'. "No, they're not cool at all..." she objected and looked at her hands once more. "You don't know what it's like to not be able to feel anything... To struggle with every movement... Shit, I never wanted this..." she said quietly and hugged her knees again.

"Nobody ever asked for things like that. But it's what makes you unique."

He smiles as he places a hand on her shoulder.

"Nayumi, if you'd like I can help you through those struggles."

"I don't want to be unique" Nayumi admitted, without noticing that Taizai's holding her shoulder. "All I want is to be normal..." she admitted. The girl never needed her cybernetics. Unlike some of the students she was now studying with, she was a perfectly healthy child. The only reason they mutilated her body like that was to see if they could. They ruined her life because of some damn experiment that she never even consented to! The girl was determined not to let herself cry again, at least not in the presence of her friend, but she wasn't sure how long she could hold her tears in. "Nayumi, if you'd like I can help you through those struggles, he said. The girl looked at him. "H-help me...?" she asked, genuinely not knowing what he meant.
