Your last name is still Himino, in my X readers it always will be. Also um you're not IN class 3-E this time. Just so you know. Also, I always spell weird wrong... I guess you could say it's... weird... heh... I'm so funny. ANYWAYS-
I don't understand why people hate everyone in class 3-E so much. I always got good grades, sure. I've never ended any term with a C, let alone Fs or Ds. But it's not their fault if they don't understand something. Sure, asking the teacher would help. But c'mon, that's one of the hardest things to do. And they would probably get turned down because in class 3-E, their teacher probably hates them.
My best friends... they make fun of them too. During school assemblies, everyone laughs at them. But I can't fix it. This isn't a Disney movie. I can't sing a song or write a speech and everyone will feel bad and love them. That's not how the world works. Though I wish it was. And I feel bad for them, honestly. Especially Nagisa. It's not fair. Why don't they fight back?
Because they can't. They're not allowed to. But I'm not NOT supposed to talk to them. It's not like it's a rule, so I won't follow it. So next chance I get I'll talk to Nagisa. I wonder why he's in that class. He seems really smart. And cute. And I didn't say that last part. Nope. So anyways, those two boys that pick on Nagisa all the time? (You know who I mean, right?)
(I don't remember their names) I followed them and the rest of the people who were headed for Nagisa. There were only two other people with them. Of course, that red-haired kid- Karma?- came to help Nagisa with his little problem. I didn't run with everyone else though. Both Karma and Nagisa shot me a curious glance, looked at each other, and looked at me again with suspicion.
They looked at each other again, then glared at me with hostility. As they walked off I watched. No way was I talking to him with Karma around. So I'd decide to leave a note. Does class 3-E even get lockers? I wouldn't bet on it. So pockets were my best way to go. But no way was I doing that with Karma around. Was Nagisa ever alone? Now's probably my best chance.
From the looks of it, Karma's always around him. So I walked up to them. I poked his shoulder gently, and he turned around. "Hmm- what-" I thought I was prepared for whatever his reaction was, but he didn't really react. He just stared at me. "Um. So, you're Nagisa, right?" I asked. He looked at me, bewildered. "Uh, yeah," he answered cautiously.
" Oh, I'm not gonna pick on you or anything. Honestly, I don't understand why people do. It's not your fault as much as you think that you're here." How was he supposed to respond to that? "Alright. Um. Nagisa-Kun, did I introduce myself?" He shook his head but he looked so confused and nervous and unsure of everything that was happening.
I held out my hand. "I'm Y/N Himino," I said warmly. "You can trust me, I promise." I hoped I sounded as inviting as I felt. Nagisa hesitated, but he took my hand and shook it. "Alright then, Himino-San," he said. "I... why though? Why would you come and try to make friends with me, of all people?" "I don't know. I... Nagisa-Kun, I really like you."
"For real?" He said, wide-eyed. "What about Karma-Kun though? If anything, you should like him, not me." He was blushing a little bit. "Oh, I like pretty much everyone in your class," I answered. "But I like you the most." I was also blushing now. "I should get back to my class, so...I'll talk to you tomorrow?" "yeah," he said. "Bye, Himino-San."
"Bye, Nagisa-Kun!" I said. And he 𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘥. At 𝘮𝘦. I was actually looking forward to it. I caught up with my class... and I had some explaining to do. The next day around the same time me and my "group of friends" went to go "see" Nagisa again. Like normal, they have their fun, and get scared away, because let's face it. They're total chickens. But I hung around.
"Oh, Nagisa-Kun, I wish I could say they don't mean those things," I said sympathetically. "I don't understand what their problem is." "It's not your fault, Himino-San," he said. "And- well, since you've started treating me like an actual person with feelings... I don't really care what they say anymore." He smiled at me. Again. "So thank you for that."
"You're welcome," I said, blushing. Just a little bit. We talked for a little while longer and I think it's safe to say he likes me. But soon it had to come to an end. So when everything was over and everyone had to go inside, I promised that I'd talk to him tomorrow. "Bye, Himino-San!" he called. "Bye, Nagisa-Kun," I called back.
Though I hoped I sounded more care-free than I was. How long until we got caught? There are cameras everywhere. This can't go on forever. Can it? ~~~~~~~Timeskip~~~~~~~~
It's been about two weeks since I've started talking to Nagisa. It must be hard for him in class 3-E, but I don't know. I haven't asked him yet. "Hey, Nagisa-Kun!" I called, running up to him waving. It was unbelievable that nobody saw us talking yet, with me yelling and waving my arms like that. "Hey, Himino-San," he said when I got up to him.
Something was wrong. "Nagisa-Kun? Are you okay?" I decided to say. "Yeah, yeah, I'm fine, it's just... two things, actually." "You can tell me," I said. "I won't get mad." "Promise?" "Promise." "I told Karma-Kun about... y'know, us talking." He was obviously nervous. It's not like He wouldn't find out, though.
Nagisa looked up at me expectantly. "Okay, I can see why I'd get mad about that. But just so you know, I'm not. He'd probably figure it out anyway." He looked relieved and exceedingly more nervous. "You're probably right about that," Nagisa admitted. "But... there are cameras all over the place. And I'll bet that at least one of them is watching us now. Himino-San..."
"We've been caught." My heart dropped. But... why was it a problem? Sure, maybe class 3-E students couldn't talk back to other classes. But if it were me talking to them, why should it matter? "It doesn't," I said aloud. "Huh? Doesn't what?" "It doesn't matter. That you've been caught and we're in trouble, I mean. We don't even have to worry about it."
"When we leave school, we can just meet up again somewhere. I don't want to sneak off during school, but at night I know a place we can go." "So, to be clear, you're suggesting we sneak off at night?" "Exactly. Do you know that one park with the pink spray-painted bench?" I asked. "Oh, yeah," he said. "If you're willing to do this..."
"Of course I'm willing, Himino-San," he said. "I'm willing to do anything for you." I was blushing, but maybe he was like this towards everyone. "Alright. 8:30 it is, Nagisa-Kun." As I walked off, I couldn't help wondering what I'd gotten us into, or how long it would be until we were caught. For falling asleep during class, or getting in trouble with our parents.
We met every night after that day. We'd sit and talk and do pretty much anything you could think of doing at 8:30 at night that isn't arson. Once we even found this open ice cream stand. "You'd be surprised at how many couples find themselves here at pink-bench park, gettin' ice cream from my stand," the man had said. " 'Specially young people like yourselves."
"Thank you," I said, not sure how to respond. "And- since I'm about to close down, you can have yours on the house." This was last night, actually. Tonight, the guy was there again. "You kids again!" He exclaimed, surprised. "Happy to see ya," he said. "Lemme guess- somethin' romantic?" He dragged out the A, as if to tease us.
"Nagisa?" I said, turning to him. "What do you think about a banana split?" "Oh-well, uhm, I don't see why not," he replied, unsure. "Do you do banana splits? Would you consider them romantic?" I dragged out the A the same way the man had. "O'course I do banana splits! And I would consider them romantic, if you're gonna split it wi' Nagisa here," he added.
"Alright then! Banana split it is," I confirmed. "Comin' right up," said the man. "What's yer name?" He asked while preparing the ice cream. "This is Nagisa, who you already know, and I'm Himino," I said. "What's your name?" "Kimiyo," said the man, sounding surprised as if nobody's ever asked his name before. I walked over to the pink bench and sat with Nagisa.
"Nagisa?" I said, looking up at the starry sky. "Yeah?" he answered. "Isn't it cool that it's a Friday and a full moon?" "You're right," he agreed. He looked back at you with starry eyes, as if every star his eyes touched were trapped there. I noticed that my hands were very close, barely an inch apart. I closed the gap, putting my hand over his.
I leaned in closer, and by some miracle I wasn't blushing. He was, though. A light pink, slightly paler than the bench where we sat. I interlaced my fingers with his and that made me blush a bit. We leaned in close to each other and I felt his hot breath on my face. Though I wasn't really breathing at all. I hesitated and so did he.
He wouldn't do something he knew I didn't want. But this was something I did want. I just didn't have it in me to do it. My eyes flickered down to his lips and back to his eyes, and before I could think myself out of it I kissed him. He kissed back instantly. I had literally no idea what made me want to kiss him. Maybe it was... every/anything about him.
He's perfect. He has everything I need. I knew I probably wouldn't ever be half of what he wanted, so I made sure to enjoy it. It's not like it would last forever. Nothing does. Nagisa pulled away and I felt kind of empty. I realised for the first time that I was completely in love with Nagisa. "Himino-San... I love you," he said.
He held eye contact with me. Not even my friends would do that. There is nothing I will ever be able to find anywhere else that I found in him. "I love you too, Nagisa. I love you so much. I love everything about you. I- I know there's not really much to me, or much in me worth loving, but you have no idea how much I love you." A single tear slid down my face. I didn't know what it was.
Happiness? Sadness? Fear? He wiped it away. Just then Kimiyo appeared with our banana split. "Thank you," me and Nagisa said. "Yeah, no problem. You two lovebirds... I hope to find someone like that one day," he said, gazing up at the moon. "Aww, don't be sad. I'm sure you will," I assured him. "Wanna share this?" Nagisa offered.
"Oh, no thanks. You kids are really somthin' else," he added. "It's about time I got goin' though," he told us. "Have a nice night, kids." And with that, me and Nagisa spent the rest of the night at the park. Where we eventually fell asleep. But it's the weekend, what does it matter?
Why did it take me a freakin week to write this? I hope you enjoyed! Was it too long? Oops.. Anyways, that's all for now, Sweet peas. Have a nice day!!!!
