Sadly I do not own Hana Yori Dango, I do however own Hayashi Mika, Kimura and Kairi
The bell rang loudly, echoing through the classroom and everyone scrambled up from their seats. I sighed in relief glad that at last it was lunchtime. I seemed to be doing that a lot lately. I hadn't expected college to be so hard, I rested my head on my desk sighing again, I almost regretted deciding to go to Eitoku. Eitoku was supposed to be the hardest school in japan to pass but it was also the best especially where law and Psychology were concerned. Boy was I glad I hadn't decided to do law, the course was twice as hard as the one I was doing and twice the workload and I was already pushed to my limits with that and the work I got from my extra creative writing course.
I realised then that my classroom was deserted and I quickly got up, grabbing my bag and shoving my books into it. I pushed open the classroom door and was about to go to the place I usually met my long-time best friend Hayashi Mika when a younger class man ran up to me. He leant over bracing his hands on his knees he managed to gasp out "Kimura – San….Hayashi – Chan…Cafeteria." I frowned and then it clicked and I took off running shouting a quick "thank you" over my shoulder before sprinting towards the cafeteria.
I laughed as I ran glad once again that I could wear trousers to school, having a dad in a high place was useful, even if you did hate him. I caught hold of the cafeteria door and yanked it open, pushing through the crowds of sick people that had gathered to watch Kimura humiliate Mika. I caught a glimpse of Mika on the floor covering her head with her hands as Kimura and his thugs threw what looked like fried rice at her. I noticed another beside her who I was sure was Domyouji Tsukasa's fiancé. I frowned wondering briefly what she was doing there but I had reached the front of the crowd now and I didn't have time to think about it.
"WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING!? STOP, NOW!" I yelled and everyone, except Kimura, froze. Kimura strolled forward cockily smirking at me "Ah Kairi, don't tell me you're still protecting this hoe?" He asked, his smirk never faltering as he insulted Mika
"Watch your mouth Kimura" I snarled "and who gave you the right to call me Kairi? Why don't you just grow up and leave us alone?" He laughed and started circling the three of us, like a lion getting ready to pounce. "Now why" he paused then to pick something up off a table before continuing to walk around us "would I want to do that?"
"Well you wouldn't want the whole school to see you get beaten by a girl?" I smirked back at him before adding "again." There was an outbreak of muttering at this and a few people in the crowd broke away, thinking this was about to end. "QUIET!" Kimura's smirk had disappeared and he was glaring at me. "That. Was a long time ago" I snorted and opened my mouth to tell him exactly how recent it had been but he began talking again, more loudly this time, so I couldn't cut in "I have been trained up since then, you wouldn't win again-"
"Wanna bet?" I interrupted
Kimura point blank ignored me "but I'm willing to make a deal." My eyes followed him: this couldn't be good. "I will leave you and Hayashi – Chan alone for good; if you leave me this girl" he gestured towards the girl on the floor next to Mika "to torment whenever I like."
"No." I didn't even have to think about it.
Kimura still smirked. I really wanted to punch that smirk off his face but a glance behind me at Mika told me she wasn't in any condition to deal with the consequences, and neither was the other girl. "Don't be so quick to answer." Kimura interrupted my thoughts "I won't give you a choice like this again. You don't even know her, what does she matter?" I felt anger flare in me then but he was already continuing "and your decision doesn't only affect you" I glanced back at Mika but she was looking at the ground, avoiding my gaze. Kimura smirked and approached me, holding out his hand "do we have a deal?" I shook my head backing away from him "never."
"You're right, I can't speak for Mika, but it doesn't matter what you offer me in return what you're really asking me to do is take Mika's pain and give it to someone else. I won't do that."
"You don't even know her!"
"It doesn't matter! She came to help Mika and that makes her a good person. I won't let you hurt a good person, even if it means I have to suffer."
Kimura advanced on me slowly, his eyes glinting dangerously and I almost took a step backwards but somehow I stood my ground. "If you do this you will all three of you suffer, you don't want that, do you?" His voice got quieter and deadlier with every word and I unconsciously took a step backwards cursing myself as Kimura smiled and gestured to his thugs to advance. I lifted my chin up and took a step forward, "I won't let you hurt either of them" I said, trying to sound braver than I felt as there was about seven of them and one of me, "We'll see" Kimura said and he reached for me.
"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?" I turned to see Domyouji Tsukasa and the rest of F4 framed in the doorway, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY FIANCÉ?" I heard the girl mutter: "please don't do anything stupid" under her breath. I guess I was right she is his fiancée. Big mistake hurting her. Kimura strode forward; grabbing Mika by her hair and hauling her up "Hey!" I yelled as Mika yelled in pain. I started towards him but one of the thugs grabbed me by my upper arms, hauling me painfully backwards. Kimura smirked at me in a satisfied way before he turned to a fuming Domyouji – who I was surprised hadn't hit anyone yet – and said "I was just teaching this little Bitch" he gestured to Mika "to respect her superiors and you fiancée got in the way."
This just angered Domyouji even more and he launched himself at Kimura snarling "My fiancé is perfect, do you hear me? Perfect!" He grabbed the neck of Kimura's shirt, forcing him to let go of Mika, and slamming him into the wall. In the background I could hear Domyouji beating up Kimura and his friends, slightly half-heartedly, trying to stop him but I wasn't paying attention to them. I watched as Mika swayed and fell, hitting the ground hard and not moving. "MIKA!" I yelled as loudly as I could throwing myself against the arms that held me back, crying out slightly ad the thug's fingers dug into my arms. I was going to have bruises.
I didn't realise how much noise I was causing until one of Domyouji's friends yelled at the thug and forced him off of me. I thanked him, but I was already halfway to Mika and barely paying attention to anyone else. I shook Mika, calling her name but she didn't respond at all. I felt panic rush through me and I started breathing faster.
Then I felt a hand on my shoulder; "its fine, she's still breathing." I thought vaguely how I could've missed that as I looked up into the eyes of the guy who had forced the thug off me. He had light brown hair that fell gently over his brown eyes and he wore a light smile on his face. He was Hanazawa Rui.
He was pretty good looking.
I realised I was staring and quickly looked away. Domyouji had been pulled away from Kimura, who was now sporting a busted lip, a black eye and about five cuts, I almost felt bad for him. Almost.
Domyouji walked right past me and gently helped the girl up. He was so gentle with her I could hardly make a connection with him and the guy who had beaten up Kimura. He leaned into her resting his forehead against hers. I felt the hand on my shoulder tighten and then disappear as Rui walked away to stare out the window.
I thought that was a bit odd. No-one else had a problem with them being all couple-ish. Before I could think about it I felt someone standing over me. I looked away from Rui to see Domyouji standing there. "I heard you stood up for Makino." He was looking away from me as he said it "I wanted to thank you. She's the most important thing to me." From the corner of my eye I saw Rui's hands ball into fits, strange.
I shook my head slightly concentrating on Domyouji instead of Rui, "I'm sure she would've done the same for me." I said "She did for Mika…" I trailed off as my gaze fell on Mika who, thank god was starting to come around. "You're damn right Makino would!" I couldn't keep up with his mood, one second he was thanking me, the next he was yelling "Domyouji! Stop it! She saved me!" Makino scolded and I saw his expression relax. "Oh, right. Sorry." He looked slightly uncomfortable.
"What do you want for saving my fiancé?" I frowned at that
"Nothing. I did it out of kindness, I don't want a reward." I pulled Mika, who was still only half conscious to her feet and pulled her arm over my shoulder. Domyouji looked fairly put out by this and opened his mouth to protest "listen here you-" but he was cut off by someone I recognised as Mimasaka Akira. "No, Tsukasa, don't start, she will get something"
Domyouji looked at him, confused and I opened my mouth to tell him again that I didn't want anything but Akira cut across me "She's earned all of our respect and she's welcome in our private canteen anytime."
"She's earned more than that" Makino said quietly "She's earned my friendship. " Makino smiled at me genuinely "If she wants it that is?" I couldn't help but smile back at her.
"Thank you. It'd be a pleasure to have your friendship." Makino smiled at me one last time before all of them left, Akira and Nishikado Soujirou giving me nods of approval as they passed. The door swung closed after them and I shifted Mika slightly, I felt her get heavier as she passed out again and I sighed. "How am I going to get you home?" I groaned.
"I can help you there." My head snapped round and I almost dropped Mika. I hadn't realised that Rui was still here. He crossed the room and stopped just in front of me he held out his hand "I can carry her better than you can and I can get her home in my car." I hesitated, I barely knew him and he was asking me to hand over my best friend? I wasn't sure if I could do that….
He seemed to sense my hesitation and he bend his head down slightly, so his face was on a level with mine "Trust me."
Normally if someone said that to me I would automatically not trust them but there was something about Rui…Something that made me gently hand Mika over to him. He pulled her arm over his shoulder and wrapped his arm around her waist, supporting her much better than I had been. He started towards the door but stopped when he realised I wasn't following him "Come on" he said jerking his head towards the door "I'll take you home too." I hesitated yet again, at least if only Mika want with him I could beat him up if she didn't return but if I went as well…Who knows what he could do?
As if reading my thoughts Rui's expression softened "I won't hurt you, beside I don't know where she lives. Trust me." For the second time in five minutes I found myself irrationally placing my trust in someone I barely knew. Like I said before; there was just something about him that made me trust him.
