God, I hate men! Akai started fiercely, and I could just see her gritting her teeth and rolling her eyes.
Me too, I replied, you know why? Because theyre men. I said the word as if it were a disease, so anyway, I went on a lighter note, what happened with you?
She sighed, Oi, you know how it is. Namidas just being an ass. Again.
I sighed and switched the phone to my other ear, What else is new? I asked boredly. I hid it, but it made me mad that hed hurt my buddy, Akai. I wanted to punch him---hard. But couldnt: Im a pacifest, and...Im a total wimp.
Why do nice guys like bitches?! I spat out, suddenly thinking of my own rotten day, I mean...WHY?! I didnt even know how to say what I wanted to say. But it didnt matter. Akai wouldnt care. She would listen to me anyway, its not like Im in love with Shurui or anything---hah, Im never falling in love with a guy for my life---but it still hurts when he flirts with Riruko, and it makes me mad because I know what a bitch she is and hes so dense, he never sees it...guys are SO dense!! I knew I was babbling, but I was angry. I meant everything Id said. I was just about ready to give up on guys. It seemed like I was making a mountain out of a moehill about Shurui because it was just a simple crush, but it wasnt nessicarily about Shurui. It was just...guys. They were so awful and...cruel.
I know Ive said this a billion times, but why cant real guys be like anime guys? Akai spoke of a wish wed both dreamed of a million times. Of course, we were mainly talking about Fushigi Yuugi guys, who were just so sweet and romantic, you looked at them and then the real guy-pigs we were stuck with and it just made you want to cry.
I let out a frustrated sigh, Its not fair! Why should we be stuck with the assholes?!
Yeah, she agreed wearily, life can be so cruel, she sniffed melodramtically.
I glanced at my digital clock, shining a bright blue 11:49. Oh, hey, Akai? Its almost midnight. We should probably get some sleep. Im gonna fall asleep right here on the phone. Youll hear me snoring soon, I demonstrated, emmiting a loud snore.
You sound like Tasuki! she exclaimed, followed by lots of laughter.
I laughed and replied, You wish. You so wish.
I could almost see her grinning, Youre right, I do.
Ah, ah, ah! Thats not fair. I get to turn into a guy1 and go out with you? Dream on. I get Amiboshi, no matter what. I grinned triumphantly.
There was a satasfied silence, both of us thinking wed won, Im sure.
Well, tomorrow, I guess, is Spring Break! I broke in happily.
Really? Awsome! she sighed with satasfaction.
I was about to reply, when I felt something was wrong. I couldnt quite place it, but as I all of a sudden felt nothing under me and hit the floor roughly, I realized Id fallen off of my chair.
Yeah. All right, now I know we have to go to bed, I just fell off my chair, I smiled lightly, goodnight, Akai.
Goodnight, Nishiko. Bye.
Bye, I finished, hanging up the phone. I wearily got off the floor and walked to my window to shut it. I stopped and stared out into the night sky, my mind on love and guys.
I wish Amiboshi was a real person, I thought, sighing loudly.
As if all of a sudden, I felt a strange, tingly feeling in my stomach, and it spread all through my body, a weird, jittery feeling, but warm and comforting at the same time. Shaking the feeling off nervously, I climbed into bed and closed my eyes. Within minutes. I was asleep.
1 This is a HUGE joke between Inomi and I (maybe a couple other friends) that someday Im gonna wake up and have changed into Koji. She says I act like him, so Im gonna turn into him and shes gonna glomp me (oh, dear God...). Someday, well have ta write a fic about it. And recently, shes been saying Im turning into Inu-Yasha too, another one of her favs. Suzaku help me!!
