I pinched myself

Friday, February 15, 2013 @ 07:34 pm

I did it. I actually did something stupid! I think I got carried away. It's just that he said my chocolates were great even though I knew that I tried so hard that I was afraid to fail. In the end, I was so happy. I felt really really happy and I guess I just wanted to thank him for thanking me. See? It's stupid! It's super stupid and super silly!-- now that I think about it! I guess maybe I was too happy and I wanted to talk to him more.

Can it really make me happy just to hear his voice? That I want to see him? This Sunday! I told him to meet me at 10am near the school!

I can't believe he said yes though, but it's even more unreal that I asked him out -- in between the lines! I haven't told him why we're meeting, but I think he knows what I meant. A date! Does he know? Well, maybe not. Hige-kun isn't really sharp. But if he was insensitive, he would've called me back just to make clear why I asked him to meet me on Sunday. So what do I do now?!

quickly in, quickly out

I was on my way to the hospital because oto-sama had a seizure today. I couldn't help panic in the car, despite being called on the phone that oto-sama has been stable for quite a time. I tried to calm myself down, because my driver made a comment that I was making him nervous. I guess he noticed me at the back.

"Maybe we should buy something nice for the master, Eri-sama?" he suggested. "I know a cake shop nearby."

I nodded. "Please. That is a nice idea." After a few blocks, we turned right and pulled over. The driver opened my door and lo and behold guess who I find in the cake shop.

"Ah." I tried not to act surprised. "Irrasshai. There's buy 1 get 1 promo inside and they're the special crafted cakes." It was hige. I proceeded inside. I wasted no time and bought oto-sama's cake immediately.

Of course on my way out, I had to say hi. "I- I read your manga, Harima-kun." and then there was silence. "J- jaa."

I couldn't help feel I said something awkward. Maybe I did, because my heart was beating fast afterwards.

it's time!

It was unbelievable. I was having second thoughts whether to push through this stupid plan. I mean, I knew from the start that Harima accompanying me to the dance would spell disaster. But... what exactly happened?

When we picked him up from his apartment, I was rolling my eyes about the day. We waited for Hige for about five minutes when I saw this man coming down the stairs. At first I didn't recognize him. But when he knocked on my window.

"Ojo. Are you going to let me in?"

"Ah!" I opened the door.

"Kombanwa." who- who's this person? Is this Harima? Totally different! Even my driver thought so. He had this clean haircut, he's wearing a formal suit, I couldn't call him Hige cause he shaved, and I... I think he even fixed his eyebrows!

"Did you wait long? I had to make sure everything's turned off before I left. I was just working on something. My computer didn't want to shut down right away."

"What were you working on?"

"Oh-- crap! Did I get ink on my suit?-- I mean. I was just writing some stuff on paper it was crazy... and then typed it on the computer."

"Couldn't you just typed it on the computer on the first place?"

"Maah, you're right. Ahaha. But I think it would've been easier to write with my hand. Anyway, it's nothing big. Are we going somewhere else first before heading to the hall?"

I'm not sure what he's thinking. He's a brute. But I don't know how he could act properly. Inside the limo, I was still pretty sure the party is going to be a wreck.

"Remember, you have to act like a gentleman. This is a very important party for me. Don't be rowdy. Don't be violent. Don't act like a delinquent. Got it?" he didn't say anything. He just gave me a nod.

When we stepped inside the hall, every important figure my dad knew was present. More pressure built into me. I am to represent our household after all.

"Who's that young gentleman with Eri-san?" I overheard from some lady. "He seems very... capable."

And when I turned my head around, everyone I saw, they were looking at us. I wasn't sure what they were saying but I had my guy telling me that the crowd was loving my chaperone.

"Uhm... Eri-san, I'm not really sure what I did wrong. I was just walking with you." he whispered.

"Everything's fine." I said. "Just make eye contact with everyone with a smile."


"Sawachika-sama! So glad you could make it. How is your father?" it was one of my dad's friend who's a business tycoon.

"He's well, Olof-san. The family doctor just insisted he should take a rest for today."

"My, he is a hard-working man, indeed. And who might this gentleman be? He looks like a very determined and rather a hardworking fellow too."

"Ah, he's my chaperone for tonight."

"Kenji, Harima. Domo." he bowed and shook hands with Olof-san.

"No need, to be modest, my boy. I am very much indebted to the Sawachika family. It's an honor to meet the chaperone that Eri-sama had picked. Ah, alas! I hope we could talk later, I must say hello to my clients here as well. Great party."

"Thank you. Don't worry about it, Olof-san." whew. That was close. But I felt that Harima-san didn't act like a gentleman at all. I mean... he can be a natural gentleman.

And he did. He became a natural gentleman in the ball. So natural that I had become care free and forgotten I had brought him in the party. Nothing unusual happened. There were no problems. Better yet, the party became wonderful.

"Eri-sama, I just want you to know that your chaperone is very kind. I was on my way to get some fresh air when I suddenly felt light headed. I think he noticed and he offered to get me a drink."

I just nervously laughed at lady Beatrice, one of the top fashion line designers in the prefecture. "He's a true gentleman, isn't it?"

And when it was time for dance, he had this very serious but calm look. I thought maybe he had been possessed by a spirit.

We danced. And everyone left the stage for us to dance all by ourselves. I was a bit embarrassed and conscious. I looked on the floor because I couldn't look at his face.

"Is something wrong?" he asked.

"No. Just. Keep dancing." I said. "And don't look at me."

At the end of the night, everyone went to shake my hands. I guess they were satisfied with the party? I'm not sure. But I think mostly it's because Harima-san did more than just a gentleman, but he helped me attend to the needs of the guests. Whether by talking to them or offering them something. How can I tell?

'I really enjoyed it. What a gentleman. What a lady. This is a very nice gathering. The hosts are very friendly. I like to ask the name of that gentleman with Eri-sama. Eri-sama was wonderful.' these are some of the comments that my staff reported. "Thanks, Harima." I said as we drove him back to his apartment.

"... sigh. It was fun." he said.

"... Harima... ano... nevermind." I just smiled.

I just yelled at the top of my lungs. My dad's sick. But that's not the point. He was going to hold a celebration -- a party -- the day after tomorrow. He's supposed to host it. And now that he's sick, he's telling me to host it on my behalf. What's worse? The family name depends on this party! What a way to put me on the spot! Not only would I host it by myself, the family's honor is on the line! If this party sucked, then the Sawachika name goes down the drain. Who will be attending the party? Just the famous figures in and outside the country! Business tycoons, celebrities, musicians, authors, fashion designers, famous chefs, and even lawyers will be there!

"How can I possibly--"

"You can ask someone to be your chaperone. Anyone you pick will be fine. That I allow it. So that you can be comfortable." dad said.

Who can possibly be my chaperone?! Who would be capable enough to help me host something grand?

I've decided to travel in order to clear my head. I've nothing to do and I've always wanted to explore. And I chose to explore America to check up on Tenma. I wonder how she's doing with Karasuma-kun. And I'll bet she'll be surprised when she sees me. I can't wait for this airplane to land soon.

I also want to make clear of my feelings. I have this on and off feeling for that certain person. Even I am too embarrassed to mention his name here. I really just want to get away from him so that I can pull myself together. I mean, do I really harbor feelings for him? Don't be conceited.

just a quick update

Saturday, January 27, 2007 @ 07:12 pm

Though we don't meet or talk often, I never forgot that I have you in my life. Somewhere, somehow, I remember you. Still bear in mind, I'm always here -- not so near but never that far.

I'm starting to think that my life has become boring.

every lonely night

Wednesday, January 03, 2007 @ 04:37 pm

When we share the laughter, there's twice the fun. When we share problems, there's half the pain. When we share the tears, a rainbow follows the rain. When we share secrets, it's our hearts we reveal. And what draws us closer and makes us all care is not what we have, but the things we share. I hope you understand.

the dramatic

Wednesday, December 20, 2006 @ 01:25 am

The greatest battle ever fought by anyone is the battle of love that can never be. No matter how strong your shield is or how sharp your sword, the bleeding cannot be prevented and the hurt will never be concealed. For the wound of the body can be healed but the wound of the heart will forever leave a scar that will remind you of a battle never won. Five more days before Christmas. I have to act.

just like the way it is

Some hate how coffee turns into an addiction and how it keeps you up all night. Some hate how it burns and makes your heart beat fast -- especially how it makes you crave for its rich and sweet promises of grains, milk and sugar. Moments later, it puts you into a melancholic mood of coldness. Before you realize, it has consumed you before you should have consumed it.

Empty. Hollow. Bitter. Then again, you crave for another cup...

... just like Love.

nevermind writing

Monday, November 06, 2006 @ 09:38 pm

I don't like to write. One reason, it's not my forte. I have a lot of things to do other than developing my weakness.

Tenma seems extra energetic these days. I have no idea why. Actually, I have no idea why she's all... Tenma. What's so special about that naive girl?

What have I learned today? Forget that, it's time for my beauty sleep.

"It's priceless." - Eri Sawachika


Eri Sawachika is one of Tenma's closest friends. She has a wealthy family and has her butler, Nakamura. Judging from her blonde hair, she's not pure Japanese. In fact, her father is a wealthy European and her mother is half-Japanese. Because of her lineage, she realizes that she Kanji somewhat difficult.

Eri is extremely wealthy. She acts civilized, although sometimes she is rather spoiled and proud. Despite of her social stance, everyone thought that Eri has no reckless side. However, her friends come to realize that she does have one. Eri has a great admiration for her father, but she can not manage to spend much time with him because he rarely comes home because of work commitments.
