There's nothing much better than
the school's dismissal time. It takes more of groveling hard work
on books and quizzes just to reach this time of the day, it's
already ten minutes past four in the afternoon. As always, I
don't want to stay for more than a minute around the school
campus. I'm actually busy-busy with my passion that is. I love
writing, and this time I'm currently struggling on a novel that
I've been working on since last year. I'm so glad I was able to
improve more of my writing style than how I was the previous
year. I better head straight to my dorm and write. I packed my
purple bag and left my books on the locker, and set out back and
fast towards my dorm.
"Amy-chan!" a resounding, sweet
voice went calling my name.
"Gracielle!" I replied, she's my
friend, after I helped her out with her love relationship in
dealing and advising behind the shadows.
She paused to catch her breath
since she came running to me. "Amy-chan! So, shall we go now?"
she blurted out, and I saw a couple more of my friends waving
towards me. They're going to invite me again to the malls.
Mall-hopping as what we call it, conquering different malls
everyday, yet I also have to do some writing.
I cleared my throat, and said,
"Gracie, it's very nice-"
"C'mon, let's go, Amy-chan!"
Gracielle towed me in and before I knew it, I was already walking
alongside five of my friends. We always do this, and for a
change, I'd want to finish my novel now. Watching them happy and
all of us having fun as we walk towards the nearest mall, I
silently sighed, there are really times I can't help around but
give way to them.
The mall was only a short walk
from our school, after a couple of window shopping and girl
talks, we all sat on one of the ice cream shops, I ordered up a
"W-what?" I startled as all of
them were looking at the parfait I'm having, that's where I
noticed they were only having ice cream in cones. God, I feel so
much blushing-I didn't think much at all when we sat on the shop,
I really thought they would be ordering big time.
I was wrong.
"Wow, Amy-chan, you really…eat,
big and much and you still retained your figure!" Mika
said, amazed to the heap of ice-cold fruits, cream, and milk
toppled. She's the smallest girl among us; she actually looks
pretty if she only let her hair hang loose, not with those
twin-tails styled on her.
Amber, the girl with blonde hair
and clear, blue eyes, also made me look horrible, "yes, tell us
your secret, Amy-chan! After being a voracious
"Hey!" I screamed, Amber, my
very best friend just told me I'm a voracious eater. They all
laughed after, and even though blushing, I can't help laughing at
myself, too. It's the best relief I need and can find at this
predicament. "You guys were sitting out here; I thought you all
would be ordering anything else other than cones."
"Don't worry, we'll wait for
you!" Alyssa remarked, all cheery and holding out her laugh.
She's very gorgeous having brownish-black hair and black eyes,
all complimenting her white skin.
"So, how does the parfait taste,
Amy-chan?" Alice opened up, she has the hair seemed to be made of
the finest silk, very matching to her green eyes, and she's quite
mature in terms of behavior than all of us.
I've already been embarrassed
enough, but I can't let them win, "Well, it tasted very sweet if
I would say so, myself! Like Mika has said, I retained my
figure!" I winked after, and they all pulled more jokes on me,
it's even close to bullying already.
We do seem very much peculiar; I
guess we find ourselves in a circle as we're labeled
"foreigners" here in Japan. We are students of the
University of Tokyo, by which the university newly opened
secondary school columns, or a.k.a. High Schools. Amber and I are
both Australians, we just met here in Tokyo and that paved much
of our way why we are best friends. Mika is a half-Filipino,
half-Japanese, she came from Philippines and is now studying to
her father's country, but akin to all of us, she doesn't look
Japanese at all; I suppose her dominant genes belonged to her
mom. Next is Alyssa, she's probably the most outgoing girl you'll
see around, she's from Singapore. Alice, she's a Belgian, she's
very nice, but you get the impression she's firm, I guess that's
what her country has accustomed to, once you get to know her,
she's very sweet. Last is Gracielle, she's a very nice girl with
her cute looks and doe-eyed, hazel eye features, peachy-cream
skin, and golden-brown hair that extended to her waist, Italians
can really be so fabulous.
Each of us have different
reasons why we are here in Japan, for me, I want to chase my
dream. I'm Amy Lea Raedevou, a fifteen year old student of the
University of Tokyo HS division, and like I said, I came here
from Australia to chase my dream.
After our mall gallivanting, I
finally have my time to write. It's already eight in the evening
when I arrived at my dormitory which is about two twenty blocks
away from the university. I have to at least write up my thoughts
on my story's chapters, better yet, do most of the novel and I
can do my assignments later because my novel is getting excited
on how the plot turned out for me! I'm already in chapter 54 and
still I'm rolling along.
After typing up a couple of
paragraphs and pages in my laptop, I went over to the freezer to
get some soda, and I remembered I needed to buy more as well as
for my breakfast for the next morning. I just forgot about them
due to the written story that kept stuck in my head. Grabbing the
keys for my dorm, I quickly grabbed my black jacket, didn't
really mind still wearing my school uniform, and then I paced out
to the nearest convenience store.
What's good about being alone in
a dormitory is that no one determines what you're doing. My
parents send my allowances through ATMs or Credit Cards. The cold
winds of the city are haunting me, but I like it, it has a
ghastly feel and it relaxes my senses. It's already ten in the
evening, I wish a day could have gone for around 30 hours rather
than 24, there's so much to do but so little time.
Suddenly, without any kind of
warning, I heard a girl's scream not so far away to where I was
walking. I quickly tailed, sensing where that scream was coming.
The whole neighborhood is quiet and I don't see anyone coming,
except for stray dogs, but that scream-I know it's not too far;
and I get an awful familiar feeling that I don't know
No time to think of feelings or
whatever, I ran towards the park a few meters away from the right
road where I turned, apparently there was no one walking inside
it, but seeing it's a public place and you can enter inside at
anytime, this would turn out to be a good place for molesters. I
also felt I'm getting close to where that scream was-I can hear
faint screams along my head. Bushes quickly rattled in front of
me as a guy jumped, and noticed me standing in front of
He was carrying a girl-right
away I knew this is the girl screaming and this scumbag is the
reason why. I place a stance, knowing he would attack me, but I
knew I have tricks up my sleeve-a lot of tricks.
The guy flinched and turned
away, running as he carried the girl in his arms. I quickly
chased them and we ended up in the center of the park, having
lonesome fluorescent lights and dim lamp posts. He stood there
with his back on me, then decided to place the girl on the
ground, and turned to me, sneering.
I got to say, he was a bit cute
as the moon shined to his face-but for a rapist, there's no way
in hell I would give him any chances. I clenched my fist and put
up my stance.
