Another thing I haven't gotten around to saying in quite a while-
I DON'T OWN MAID-SAMA.
About Carpets and Rollers (3rd Person POV)
"I am strong….."
The burly black-haired guy laughed and tightened the carpet around the thin, trembling boy…
"I am strong…I will not cry…"
"You look like a human sausage, Hinata!" laughed one of the boys as a thick carpet was wrapped around poor, sniffing Hinata Shintani and tied on with rope.
"I'm a man!..."
"Awww, come on, Shintani. What happened to the cute puppy face we were all expecting?"
Hinata stood there, his arms forced behind his back trembling as he felt the tears sting his eyes.
"Little boy wants his mommy!"
"I should be strong…but…b-but…"
Hinata couldn't take it anymore.
The carpet tightened around his body, with his arms and legs clamped inside as he opened his mouth and let out an enormous wail, exploding in tears.
Shintani should've never stayed at the gas station after his shift, but foolishy he had remained there after 7 p.m., thinking he'd get paid extra for working over time, and it had resulted in him being the bait of a rowdy gang that had often picked at him before as well.
There were not many people around except for a pimple-faced teenager, who was slowly backing away and trying to escape, eyes wide as he stared fearfully at Shintani's tear-stained face. The teen tripped, fell and then took off down the street.
"There we go!" laughed the gang leader as Shintani continued"A power-packed performance! Continue on, Hinata, my man!"
The others laughed.
Hinata tried to wriggle free- he didn't even know where these people had gotten the carpets from.
Apparently they were packers and movers. On the gang's return journey in the truck, filled with the rugs and carpets, Hinata had been unfortunate enough to meet them outside the gas station.
After a heated discussion, about how they wanted him to fill their truck's tank without having to pay, here Hinata Shintani stood, resembling a human sausage with the carpet rolled around him.
"HEEELLP!" he wailed again when-
And there she was- Hinata's eyes were shining stars- his miracle angel!
"Misaaaaaaaaaki!" he bawled happily.
The almighty Misaki Ayuzawa, the Goddess of rescuers, was here for him.
"Three down." She panted, rubbing the fist she had used to knock three of the six gang members. "Hinata, what the hell are you doing here?"
"I don't know!" he cried, wriggling desperately as he felt the strong urge to clasp Misaki in a bear hug "I d-don't know!"
"Don't you ever listen to anything I say?" she said, more anxious than angry as she wrestled with a guy. The burly gang leader was staring at her.
Well, anyone would, if three of your guys have just been rendered unconscious by a petite, extremely hot teenaged girl.
"Who are you? What are you doing here?" he managed to gasp.
"The question here-" Misaki punched the guy she was wrestling, kicked the one who advanced on her from behind "-is what you are doing-" she dusted her hands and looked up at him "-with my friend here" She pointed at Shintani, who had the carpet rolled firmly around him.
The leader's jaw dropped. Slowly he made his way towards her, eyes shining and a grin spreading on his lips.
"That was so awesome!" he advanced on her, hands held up as a greedy expression washed over his face.
"Stay away from me!" Misaki punched him, but he dodged "Hinata, are you okay?"
Hinata was still stuck inside the carpet, but tears of happiness and relief flooded through him "Oh, thankyou, Misaki! Thankyou thankyou thankyou-"
"You gotta teach me those moves, girl!" the gang leader began and caught her arm, taking Misaki by surprise. He pulled at it, laughing when she kicked him in the shin.
"How dare you!" she backed away when one of the guys caught her from behind, having just regained unconsciousness. She started when-
"Stop!" the gang leader cried, his arms spread wide towards Hinata's whimpering carpeted form "Stop right there or I'll push your pretty boyfriend, and he'll roll away to the glory!"
Misaki stood there, muttering incomprehensively as the conscious two guys wrapped a carpet around her as well.
"Wrap 'em round nice and tight, lads!" laughed the leader, obviously enjoying himself "Give the girl an extra , careful amount of your time- little bundle of fury she is!"
"I'm s-so sorry, Misaki…" cried her childhood friend from beside her, feeling pathetic, tightly bound in a carpet.
"How did you manage to end up packed in a carpet anyway?" she hissed.
"Uh…I don't know…but it's not like bad things need to have a reason to happen to me- this happens quite a lot…" he said guiltily "Once there was this dog who I-"
She sighed "It's not your fault, and don't start on anything else. Figure out a way to get the hell out of here!"
"Misaki you're so niiiiiiice! How can I ever thank you! You are truly the-"
"How odd!" the gang leader announced "The guy's bawling his head off, while the girl is muttering and planning revenge! Change of characters, eh?"
As Misaki tried to wriggle away, the leader grinned "Tie the two lovers together! They'll roll down the slope in each other's arms!"
Obediently the men began tying Misaki and Hinata with ropes, so that it looked like two large rubber rollers had been put together, when-
PUNCH!...And a guy near the leader crashed into a pair of dustbins.
"Now what!" the gang-leader shouted irritably.
"No one-"came a soft growl "-and I mean no one ever-" a pair of feet landed swiftly on the road and a guy emerged "-calls that creature my Misa's lover"
Who to expect but the savior of the day- Usui Takumi?
"What do you mean 'that CREATURE'!" Hinata shouted.
Usui glanced at him coolly "Sorry, should have I said 'that thing'?"
"What is he doing here!" Hinata cried at Misaki furiously, his tears forgotten "How did he even know we were here!"
"I've given up on trying to find out- you're an ALIEN, Usui!"
Said boyfriend swiftly kicked the guy nearest him and landed on the road lightly. Even in the dark- his every move seemed crystal clear as he smiled at her, green eyes twinkling "Hello, Ayuzawa. Not your usual attire, I see" he gestured to the carpet around her.
"What're you doing here?" she barked.
"Saving you."he paused "Which reminds me, you run into thugs like these far too often, Prez. What on earth made you think that creature was reason for you to risk your life?"
"I HEARD THAT!" Hinata cried loudly, shaking wildly, and making Misaki shake too as he was tied to her.
"Shut up, for God's sake, the two of you! Usui, I-"
"Now who the hell are YOU?" the gang leader demanded at Usui.
"I am the girl's lover, so how about you hand her over and nobody gets hurt?"
"You're not my lover, you idiot! I never said that-!"Misaki went, wriggling out of her carpet, making Shinatani shake this time.
Shintani stared wide-eyed as he threatened to topple off his feet down the extremely slopey road.
"Uh…M-Misa…don't shake so m-much..we'll….if you d-don't stop right noooOOOOOOOWWWW…!"
Shintani lost balance and toppled off his feet. Misaki realized in horror that she had been tied to him as he fell and took her down with him.
"NOOOOOOOOOOO…." Her voice trailed away as they both fell and began to roll down the road at top speed.
Usui and the other conscious ones watched, stunned as Hinata and Misaki's yells faded away- something about how Hinata was too young to die and how Misaki was going to 'kill that alien'.
"It's not my fault this time" Usui muttered.
The gang-leader blinked some more, then let out a bark of laughter "Ha, suckers! Those two are gonna have the time of their life!"
He shut up at the look Usui gave him.
Another punch and the leader was knocked out.
Usui ran after his two rolling carpeted friends, wondering what the normal people were doing that night.
"Please stop please stop please stop please stop please stop please-"
"WILL YOU SHUT UP WHILE I'M TRYING TO THINK OF SOMETHING!"
Misaki had never lost her temper with Hinata before, and she felt a tad guilty as he looked at her with watery puppy eyes.
Well, what she assumed were watery, they were rolling so fast everything was a blur.
Nausea hit her and Misaki suddenly felt strongly dizzy.
"Misaki- my hands are tied!"
"Yeah, so are MINE!"
Thank God for the lack of traffic on the road was all she could think of as they spiraled down, their yells going unnoticed.
"Misaki- I feel like pu-*oop!*" Hinata swallowed, looking green, eyes rolling as if he was hypnotized. They bumped on a speed-breaker, and flew up in the air.
"OW!" Hinata's head hit the road hard as the carpet fell back on the ground and began rolling even more faster.
They road curved and they went down, yelling and screaming.
"I DON'T WANNA DIEEEEE!"
"Where is that alien when you need him?" Misaki shrieked furiously.
The ropes tying their two carpets together was slowly coming undone, she realized with horror. If that happened, then not only would they continue rolling down, but would most likely go separate ways.
"Oh, no- Shinta-!"
The rope came undone and Hinata watched Misaki with wide brown eyes of fear as he himself rolled far away from her.
Between rolls and bumps, Misaki lost sight of him around the corner as his screams faded away.
One couldn't help feeling a strong pity for the guy,
Then all of a sudden, as if out of thin air appeared Usui Takumi, panting as he followed after Misaki's rolling figure.
With a huge dive, Usui caught her and they screeched to a halt on the cemented road.
"Are you alright? What happened? Did you get hurt? Look at this-!" he shook the carpet off of her, the rope having come undone pretty much by itself "-I believe it's made of the most uncomfortable material. Do you experience any itching?" he asked Misaki.
"Usui- Hinata's still….s-still…" Misaki said urgently, getting on her feet but falling down on the road, heavily dizzy.
Usui caught her, eyes filled with concern "You should sit down"
"Hinata, Usui!" she cried, feeling sick to the stomach. Her whole world was going around her. "Do something!"
He sighed "Must I?"
She glared at him.
And once again, he took off down the road.
"I never asked you to save me!"
"Personally, I didn't want to either-"
"Then why did you?"
"..Because I'm not someone who lets people roll and come under a car and die if I can help it. And besides, my cute girlfriend ordered me to save you"
Misaki walked between the two bickering males.
"Don't call me cute!"
"Ah- but you are cute, Misa" Usui smirked triumphantly at Shintani, who looked away pointedly.
"Shut up! By the way, Shintani, how did you end up in a carpet?"
Shintani shook his head stubbornly and ruffled his hair, trying to act non-chalant "They were just teasing me- nothing new….you know, it happens all the time, usually I'm enough to defeat all of them!" He swelled his chest, smiling when Usui chuckled.
"Teasing you, you say. Yes, you definitely didn't need any rescuing."
"Who told you to go ahead and save me then!"
"I just said-"
Misaki sent her boyfriend a glare and turned to put a hand on her childhood friend's shoulder.
Her anxious gaze rested on Shintani's dirt-smudged face," Are you alright? Did they hit you or something?"
He blushed, pleased at her concern "Aah, jeez- n-no! I'm- I'm really glad you came though! Thank you so much!" he hung his head "I feel so ashamed for dragging you into this."
"You should." Usui muttered,
"No one asked you!"
Usui put hands in his pockets and looked away.
"It's no problem, Hinata." Misaki smiled "Although, the credit really goes to Usui" she added grudgingly.
Hinata gritted his teeth, knowing he was now supposed to thank Usui, but before the guy could open his mouth, Usui interrupted-
"You do know I wouldn't let anything…well, extreme happen to you, even if I wish it from the bottom of my heart." Usui made a point not to look into anyone's eyes "I do know how much you mean to my girlfriend."
Hinata's eyes went wide.
It was a surprising reply, even Misaki was staring at Usui's carefully blank face.
Hinata looked at the ground "Wow, uh...thanks, I guess...I- I'll see you guys around then.." and he left hastily, waving at Misaki.
Misaki waved back until he limped around the corner. The corners of her lips twitched slightly to make place for a small smile as she dropped her hand and looked up at Usui with softened eyes.
"…Thanks. For not jumping up his throat for a change, you know…" she mumbled.
Usui chuckled, holding her chin up, his breath tickling her .
"So where's my reward, Prez?"
An eyebrow went up.
"The thankyou kiss, ofcourse."
Misaki punched him, flushing scarlet "Get lost!"
She had such small fists, it was adorable whenever she punched him. He laughed to himself as he fell back, he was probably the only guy in the world who liked it when his girlfriend hit him.
But they weren't exactly normal, were they?
"Whaaaaat? That's cheating.."
"I don't care"
"Did you know you're the only person I've ever seen wearing a blue carpet?"
"Go home, Usui!"
"I would've preferred red, it's so much feisty…"
Yeah, they were far from normal.
A/N: The ending seemed a bit forced…? And yeah, I know it was getting a but monotonous, with many of my stories here already having gangs and ass-kickings, but I just couldn't help it, I just WANTED so damn badly to wrap Hinata in a carpet and push him down the street, it felt like such a hilarious scene! :D
Tell me your views anyway. Open to suggestions, and THANK YOU everyone for reading :)
Love to all.
