My Cherry Blossom Part Two



Chapter 9

Kenta’s Point of View:

It took a minute or two for my mind to register on what just happened. I didn’t think something like this would happen just like that. Some dude missed a shot in the garbage can with a banana peel-without using common sense to even pick it up-and Sakura accidentally stepped on the banana peel and slipped, falling…on ME.

I was on the ground and Sakura atop of me. I felt my cheeks turn pink as I felt Sakura’s hot breath on my face. Her cheeks were rosy, easily showing how embarrassed she was. Did my face show how much I was embarrassed?

We were like a brick on top of another brick, not saying she’s heavy though. Her legs intertwined with mine, our bodies softly touching. I smelled a nice aroma coming from her. Did she put perfume on this morning?

I pushed away the thought and something else ran through my mind. Is it me or is taking a good look at Sakura weird? Because this close, our lips almost touching, she is prettier than I thought…and cuter. The thought made me blush even more.

It took Sakura a long moment to realize she was on top of me. She gasped and got off of me quickly. I watched her dust off the dust on her clothes and I too did the same thing.

That’s when I realized she covered her mouth and was blushing madly. I looked away before she could look at me blush fiercely too. I scratched my head idiotically, not knowing what to do in this awkward atmosphere.

I felt people gawk at us, looking at Sakura’s back and my back turned opposite of each other. I stared at the retarded guy who had thrown the banana peel and had caused all this in the first place. Once he noticed my look, I think he thought I was glaring and in an instant he apologized.

“It’s okay, man.” I told him as he kept bowing up and down like an idiot. Actually, it was not okay. But I’m nice like that and I’ll let him off the hook…for now.

“Sakura…?” I heard a male voice behind me. I turned around and my eyes met Takeshi’s. Well, he glanced at me then turned toward Sakura, his eyebrows furrowed. Sakura gazed at Takeshi, her face still red.

Sakura’s Point of View:

What does Kenta think about me being right on top of him? Because right now, I am.

My face turned absolutely beet red. I could tell that he knew I was embarrassed. I saw his cheeks turn pink as I felt my heart beat loud. Could he feel my heart beat?

My soft body was on his hard, well-built body. When did he get muscular? Oh wait…he’s a man now. For some reason, Kenta’s blush turned from pink to red. What was he thinking? Oh no, he must be thinking badly about me!

It took me a long moment to realize that I was still on him and not getting off. I gasped and got off quickly. I dust off the dust on my clothes. I covered my mouth, blushing madly.

Oh my gosh! I’m in love with Kenta…again. Oh no, oh no. This is bad. What about Takeshi? Do I still like him? I don’t know about that… Oh great, now I’m confused. I’m dating Takeshi yet I’m in love with Kenta. Messed up, right? Ugh, it’s hard to choose between them. Especially when one of them-*cough* Kenta *cough*-doesn’t remember me at all from the past!

“Sakura…?” I instantly recognized Takeshi’s voice calling after me. I looked up at a confused-looking Takeshi, whose eyebrows were furrowed. He glanced at Kenta behind me and shifted his gaze upon me. My face turned even redder, if that’s even possible, as my eyes widened.

“Takeshi…” I whispered his name quietly as he confusedly stared at me, the atmosphere becoming very awkward and unbearable.

“What’s going on here…?” he earnestly asked, his eyebrows still furrowed.

“Ah…” I hesitated to say.

“Sakura accidentally fell on me because of that idiot,” Kenta spoke up and pointed at the criminal who was shaking in fear.

“Oh…” Takeshi muttered. One look at him and I could already tell that he was upset for some reason. Was he jealous…? Well, of course he would be since he’s my boyfriend.

“Oh yeah, weren’t you looking for Takeshi?” Kenta asked me and I slowly nodded my head, still blushing.

“Well, I’m here,” Takeshi walked up to me and put his arm around me. “I’m gonna take her away now.” He and I turned around to walk away. I didn’t get what Takeshi meant by that but for some reason he put emphasis on what he said…

My eyes widened when I took one more glance at Kenta. He was appalled because of what Takeshi said and his face was red for some reason. His hands were forced into fists and when his eyes turned toward me, I blushed and turned my head back around.

Takeshi’s Point of View:

I don’t know why I said that but I had a feeling I had to say it. Perhaps jealousy overwhelmed me when Kenta told me what happened? Or was it because Sakura was blushing afterwards? Could be both…

With my arm around Sakura as we walked away from Kenta, I felt no shyness or joy from Sakura like before. And when I noticed her take one more glance at Kenta and snap her head back around while blushing, I could already tell… I could already tell that she’s fallen in love with someone else other than me. And that person happened to be the culprit watching us walk away.

I forced my left hand into a fist and tightened it, filled with rage that I kept inside of me. Kenta Sasaki…why him…? What have I done wrong? Or what has he done right? I can’t tell if he has feelings for Sakura… He’s like a brick wall; you can’t read him or get past him. For now, I think he has no feelings for Sakura…or does he already?

“Hmm…I got some extra work to do,” I muttered, wondering about Kenta and his past.

“Did you say something?” Sakura looked at me as she tilted her head to the side. That was so cute of her.

“Nothing…”

“Oh…” she looked down, and I could tell she was thinking about the events that just happened.

I grinned, neither happy nor sad. Was it an evil grin? Maybe, maybe not. I just had one thing in mind: I can’t lose.

Chapter 10

Sakura’s Point of View:

I sat quietly in English, staring outside of the window beside me. I just couldn’t look at Kenta right now, who kept staring at me on and off. Not to mention, I kept feeling the twins’ sparkly stares at me, it’s as if they were squealing about what happened through their eyes. It was raining, how gloomy. Whenever it rains, I always think that someone’s crying or is just sad. Well, instead of being sad, I’m actually confused.

I just can’t think straight, my mind keeps curving when the road remains straight and narrow. My head is currently on malfunction because of the numerous thoughts rambling on. Let’s get this straight: I like Kenta again, but what about Takeshi? My feelings for him are strong, or were strong; right now it’s just unexplainable. This whole thing is inexplicable!

Now that I think about it, I remember Kenta mentioning about his lost of memories…will me liking him cause an uproar? Will I, even being around him, overflow him with too many memories that he’ll faint A LOT? Oh my gosh, I’m worried about that.

But then again, I really want him to remember me, us. Was there even an “us” to begin with? We were the best of friends, until he surprisingly confessed and left me…

I can’t take it, my patience is running on very thin string and is about to fall off. What can I do to make things right without someone ending up hurt? Endeavor is all I can do, but endeavor what, exactly?

“WATANABE-SAN!!!” Fujikage-sensei threw a dry erase eraser at my face, which tasted like markers and dust combined. The dry erase eraser dropped to the ground as small giggles surrounded the room. I turned my gaze up to Fujikage-sensei and irritation enraged him.

“What?” I bluntly asked, unusually calm about his increase in temper and the consequences along with it. Fujikage-sensei took a long deep sigh and sank in his seat while closing his eyes.

“If you want to pass this class then pay attention, please.” He stared at me seriously as I nodded my head and threw the dry erase eraser back at him, which he successfully caught. “Now then, class, from the top of the page, please read the remaining paragraphs.” I did as he said, but got bored after the first two words and slyly pretended that I was reading.

Genuinely, what I’m worried most about is Takeshi. Did he find out that I like Kenta yet again? I’m so easy to read, I’m pretty much running around with a poster saying, “I like Kenta!”

If he did know, what exactly would he do? Inclusive of the situation at hand, and the fact that he’s “irrevocably” in love with me and is not willing to let me go, I’m afraid to say that he’s unreadable…just like Kenta. Why do guys have to be like a brick wall!?

But, considering that Takeshi is a great guy, I don’t think he would do anything that would produce an impact in any of our lives. Pretty much, he won’t do anything, or that’s what I think…

Takeshi’s Point of View:

In the midst of Sakura’s “mess,” there lays I, Takeshi, the pursuer of her love. Yes, that may sound corny, but I wanted to make it sound dramatic.

If Sakura thinks that I know nothing about her newly found crush, she better think again because I actually do. She’s too easy to read, but yet too hard to read; her book is very bipolar.

I like her a whole lot, some say I’m a bit obsessed with her…but I don’t think I’m obsessed, it more like I’m captivated by her. She draws me in with her charms, her very smile makes my heart stop. She’s my angel; she’s the sole reason why I live. The intrinsic value of Sakura surpasses everything, even my own soul.

Whistling quietly to myself, I walked through the inaudible halls and headed for the student council office. As president, I have some beneficial features that only I and the staff of this school can have.

I reached my destination, opening the door and slowly closing it behind me. I hid behind a nearby chair, looked to see if anyone was around and when it was clear, I jumped and hid behind the nearest object. I continued that process until I reached my desk. I slyly smiled to myself, surreptitious as I can be even though it was unnecessary. I just wanted to feel like a ninja, okay?

Crouching, I rummaged through all the student files and successfully found Kenta’s. I read every single little detail, and when my eyes rested on his history, I abruptly slammed his file closed, not wanting to continue reading such information.

I leaned against the wall behind me and furrowed my eyebrows. I did not know that he had… That he was in a… That he had such a past. If Sakura knew this, how would she react? But, what if she already knows this? No, I don’t think she does…

Snapping back to reality, I reluctantly opened his file again and continued reading. His mom was a…!? My eyes widened at every detail, it felt like I found treasure that wasn’t supposed to be found.

“Sakura…” I whispered her angelic name. “You do not know the consequences of liking Kenta…” I closed my eyes while leaning against the wall; I just can’t think straight, my mind keeps curving when the road remains straight and narrow.

I deeply care about Sakura; therefore I shall feverishly protect her from Kenta. I will, without any exception, not allow such knowledge of Kenta’s past act as influenza to Sakura. I can’t let her go, I just can’t.

Kenta’s Point of View:

If English could get any more boring, then kill me. The only reason why I like English is because of Fujikage-sensei’s amusing ways to get Sakura to pay attention to him.

I glanced at Sakura every now and then for some unknown reason; I couldn’t help but notice every single detail of her. When she answers back to Fujikage-sensei, she likes to use more of a straightforward tone, how she looks out the window when she’s bored, when her face is blank it means that she’s thinking too hard about something, and how she notices me staring at her and is too timid to stare back. All I could do is grin at her immatureness.

Looking back to yesterday, I vaguely remember the scene of when that one girl confessed to me, and when she asked if I like Sakura. I sort of hesitated for some indefinite reason, and told her, “Not at the time,” and for some unfathomable reason, there was a little pain in my chest when I told her that. After that was when I went to help Sakura find her boyfriend, Takeshi.

Ever since the scene of her falling on top of me, everything’s been so awkward between us. I wish Sakura would just talk to me like normal, but then again, was there always normal talking between us? Now that I remember, we usually talked about how weird the twins are, and other dramatic stuff.

What I mean by “dramatic stuff,” I mean how I caught her crying and I told her that she reminds me of someone…oh my gosh, I remember! My eyes widened at the sudden thought. I remember Sakura telling me that she was the girl in my memory I keep having! What exactly does that mean? Does that mean that I’m forgetting something really important? My head started hurting out of no where, and images suddenly appeared in my head.

“Not again…” I muttered, making Sakura look up to see what was happening. Her eyes widened as she quickly recognized what was happening. Unable to take all the pain, I fell off my chair and my vision became blurry as I slowly became unconscious. All I could hear was Sakura calling out my name, and all I could see was the same memory of the pink-haired girl crying under the marvelous cherry blossom trees. Her tears tracking down her face was so familiar; I couldn’t quite catch why it was so recognizable… I just can’t think straight, my mind keeps curving when the road remains straight and narrow.
