Chapter 2: Other Foreign Exchange Students
"Konnichiwa, Eric-san…uh, I, I mean, umm, hello, Eric." Takahiro stuttered on his English phrase. He was a junior from Japan and was taken in by the Cartman's. His grade point average was 3.5 and his grades ranged between A's and B's. He had taken English for three years. He wasn't very full on his English skills, but the whole reason he wanted to come to the United States was to fully brush up on them and see how a real American speaks.
"What the fuck mom? I didn't want a foreign sibling!" Eric shouted. Takahiro looked a little bit disappointed hearing that his "brother" didn't want a brother in the first place. Liane noticed this and became very upset with her son.
"Eric! You apologize to Takahiro right now!" Liane snapped at Eric. Eric sighed a loud, irritated sigh.
"I'm sorry, Takahiro." Eric said sarcastically. Liane patted Eric on the back and pushed him and Takahiro to the door. "Wait, mom! What are you fuckin' doing?" Liane laughed as Eric and Takahiro stood on the outside porch together, Takahiro slightly taller than the 5'7 Eric.
"You two go out and have a trip on the town!" Liane suggested. "Show Takahiro all of the places our little town has to offer!" Liane shut the door in Eric and Takahiro's face and they just stood there not knowing what to say or do.
"So, where do you want to go, Eric?" Takahiro politely asked.
"Shut up." Eric crudely replied, walking down the steps to his first destination. Takahiro followed him.
"Where is this place?" Takahiro asked when Eric and him got to a place in the town. Eric sighed and gave Takahiro a mean glare.
"Don't you mean 'what is this place'?" Eric asked crudely. Takahiro apologized for his mispronunciation and followed Eric into the restaurant. Takahiro tried to read the words on the restaurant to make sure he wasn't being taken to anywhere dirty.
"Raisin's?" Takahiro questioned. Eric took Takahiro's hand and laughed.
"Yes, yes! Raisin's it is my dear foreign pal!" Eric laughed. "And you'll see that I'M the most popular one to step into this restaurant! Sorry you won't get any girls, but that's just the way it goes!" Eric put his arm around Takahiro as they walked into the restaurant while Takahiro just wandered in with a confused look on his face.
When they got into the restaurant, Eric kept strutting as if he was God or something, but all of the girls' gazes were on one particular person.
"Is he foreign?"
"Think he'll go out with me?"
"See, Takahiro, they are all basking in my glory!" Eric bragged. Takahiro wasn't listening because Mercedes, Portia and the other Raisin's girls were crowding around him, basking in HIS glory.
"So, like, what's your name?"
"Where are you from?"
"Will you go out with me?"
Eric looked next to him to see all those questions being asked to his foreign "brother". Did it piss him off? You damn well know it pissed him off. Eric doesn't like someone to be more popular than him. He gets overpowered by jealousy too easily.
"Oh, my name is Takahiro Takamoto. I am from Japan. And I have a girlfriend back in Japan. Her name is Minako." Takahiro answered the other girls' questions.
"Aww, he has a girlfriend."
"I wanted to go out with him."
"Let's go, Takahiro." Eric cursed under his breath. Takahiro waved goodbye to the Raisin's girls as Eric pulled him and his brother out of the restaurant.
Note to self: girls like foreign boys. Takahiro kept a mental note as they walked out of the restaurant. Next to them, Butters and a person were walking into the restaurant, wondering what the heck they were doing.
"That was weird." Butters said. "Well anyway, Mang Hui, this is where my girlfriend works. Her name is Lexus." Lexus walked over to Butters and this "Mang Hui" and introduced herself. She was wearing her normal Raisin's outfit, the short tank top and orange shorts.
"Hi, I'm Lexus!" she said. "Butters, who's your cute friend?" Butters didn't like the word "cute", but he decided to introduce him anyway.
"Umm…this is Mang Hui, our foreign exchange student from Korea." Butters replied. Lexus continued getting lost in the gaze of Mang Hui's dark, brown eyes. He was one that you'd want to stare at for a while. His short, black hair and slim, dark face was one not normally seen in the states. His slim figure and trim state also made him a catch for the ladies.
"Umm, Mang Hui, I think we should go now!" Butters exclaimed to his "brother", getting worried Lexus was getting TOO into him. "We'll have dinner some other time Lexus, okay?"
"Okay, sweetie!" Lexus replied. "Oh, and bring Mang Hui too!" Butters cursed to himself at that comment and left the restaurant with Mang Hui at his side.
"You don't have to call me Mang Hui," Mang Hui told Butters. "My nickname is Eric." Butters put his hand over Mang Hui's mouth at that name.
"Yes, I understand Mang Hui, but I just don't like that name!" Butters explained.
"But why do you not like it?" Mang Hui didn't understand why Butters hated the name "Eric" so much.
"Just cause!" Butters said back. "Now, let's go to a different restaurant."
Note to self: Butters doesn't like the name "Eric." Mang Hui kept a mental note. Walking past them on the sidewalk was Wendy Testaburger who was walking with an unknown person. Long black hair, thin eyes. Thus, another Asian student.
"Yanru, this is the High School, ten blocks from the Elementary and Junior High school." Wendy was supposedly also giving a tour of the town to her foreign exchange student.
"So we are not going to be near any of the cute little kids?" Yanru asked Wendy.
"Sorry, Yanru." Wendy apologized. Yanru soon sparked up again when she remembered something else though, instead.
"What about any cute gay boys at your school?" Yanru asked. "Are there any there?" Okay, Wendy wasn't for criticism, but that question had "needs criticism" all over it. But Wendy didn't want to upset her foreign sister so she thought "What the hell?"
"Well, I think Butters might be hiding in the closet." Wendy replied. Yanru squealed with joy at this comment.
"Ooh, I can't wait until school tomorrow!" she exclaimed. Note to self: look for cute gay guys.
Yanru and Wendy continued down the road and past thus another pair of "sisters." Henrietta and the German exchange student, Kareena Temps. Kareena didn't seem to like listening to Henrietta's talking because she was listening to her iPod and playing on her phone while Henrietta just walked by her with a bored look on her face.
Note to self: My sister sucks balls. Kareena gave herself a mental note. Passing them was Stan Marsh and his sister, Shelly and their foreign Czech sister, Teresa Flamroe.
"Like, where is all of the clothes places?" Teresa asked. Stan didn't like clothing stores, but that's something Shelly was number one on since she was a girl and changed a lot since her fifth grade days. No braces, no mouth piece, she had her hair blonde down and had it highlighted with blonde highlights. Her style was more "of today" also and she always wore what was hot. She and Teresa were meant to be sisters.
"We have, like, a Hot Topic and other things in the mall." Shelly exclaimed. "Let's go!" Teresa and Shelly ran off leaving Stan in the dust.
Note to self: South Park has a mall. Teresa reminded herself. Stan stayed behind and saw Cartman walking by himself.
"Hey, Cartman, you might be right about your thing about all the foreign students being dicks." Stan said. "Mine went to hang out with my sucky sister." Eric pointed his finger in Stan's face.
"Ah ha! Told you asshole!" Cartman said. "They're on some big government mission to steal our information and send it to their countries! It could really happen." Okay, maybe Cartman went a bit too far on that one cause Stan just started staring at him with a dumbfounded face.
"Uhhh, no… you said that you didn't know why people were going all fuckin' nuts about the foreign exchange students and that's what I was catching on to." Stan finished. He finally just decided to walk away because Eric was definitely going to have a blowout moment there in a few minutes.
"Damn it, why don't people believe me on why foreign exchange students are bad?" Eric shouted out for the world to hear. This was obviously heard by someone because a very familiar person walked over to where Eric was sobbing and shouting.
"I believe you." The person said. Eric looked up to see who was talking to him and, damn, was he surprised.
"Why do YOU want to help me…?"
"Because…I know what they're planning…"
CLIFFHANGA! HAHA! No, no, I'm kidding, I'm kidding. What do you think of it so far? Sorry if all of the foreign names aren't really names from that country. The only ones I know that are official are Takahiro's because I'm studying Japanese and Yanru because our Chinese foreign exchange student was named Yanru. Oh, and Teresa, but I changed it from "Tereza" to "Teresa" but she was a foreign exchange student from the Czech Republic who came to our school. So in a way this story got thought up because of my experiences with having six foreign exchange students at one school in one year, so it was usual to be suspicious. Anyway, please R/R! Reviews make me happy. And thank you to "Yamunaku" whose review made my day, so thank you.
