I feel so selfish asking all these questions. But I love your answers and so what am I supposed to do? D: We all know that the regular students aren't *supposed* to try and talk to the idols, but does that mean none of them would take the risk if they saw an opportunity? A distracted teacher or one of the idol students falling behind the group?
So I decided to combine these because they work so well together. :D
Yuuri laughed and brushed his hair back. Almost two years done. It was hard to believe that he thought he’d hate this school when he came, but he didn’t. Kanon-chan waved and headed into the classroom. He’d only come for half a day since he was flying out late afternoon for almost a solid 24 hours of travelling. He hurried down the steps. He was supposed to meet Riku outside the gate.
Yuuri spun around, wondering who was calling out to him. It was another student, a girl, second-year given the color of her tie. He smiled and held up a hand. That’s what Shuji-kun did whenever one of the girls from the regular classes started calling out to him. “Acknowledgement without getting in trouble. It’s important to be nice to your fans,” is what he’d say. Yuuri blanched at the idea that he was assuming that the person was a fan of his. That was… well, ridiculous. He was just an ice skater, nothing spectacular. He was fairly good at it, but it wasn’t like everyone in the country watched ice skating.
He turned away, but the girl was running up to him. Did he have something on his face? Was she trying to save him from embarrassment by walking off campus with a spot from the curry bun (approved by Alexei) he’d had as a small snack on his tie or something? He looked down at his tie. No, it was still blue and still plain and had no food spots on it.
“Yuuri-kun! I can’t… It really is you!” The girl looked over her shoulder. “I can’t believe…” She smiled up at him. “I can’t believe it’s you.”
He swallowed. What was he supposed to do in this sort of situation? He never actually listened to any of the other students and how they dealt with stray fans from the regular classes who managed to skirt a teacher. In what universe would he have to deal with that?
“I’m Taira Kaede from 2-A! I really like you!”
Yeah, this had definitely gotten out of hand. “Um, thank you for your support.” He bowed.
She just looked at him with her head slightly tilted to the side. Did she want an autograph? It wasn’t like he carried those things around.
She shook her head. “No, um. I like you.” She started blushing. First, it covered her cheeks, just dusting her nose, and then it ran down her neck and along her ears and Yuuri realised that by not saying something he was just making her more embarrassed.
“Thank you?” He squeaked. Yuuri wanted to fall down a deep deep hole and never come out. “I’m sorry, but I really have to go. I’m leaving for a competition.”
“Oh. OK. Good luck, Yuuri-kun!”
“Thank you, Kaede-chan. Bye!” He turned and ran off and didn’t even give it another thought as he climbed into the car and listened to Riku talk about their schedule. The transfers were tight, but as long as they stayed organized, everything would be all right.
“Did you do it? Did you tell him?”
“We kept Yanagi-sensei distracted. He didn’t even realise that you’d gone missing!”
Kaede nodded and smiled. “He had to leave because he was going to a competition.” She took a deep breath but even so when she spoke again she sounded breathless and her face was still flushed with color. “He called me Kaede-chan!”
Kaede and her friends all squealed.
Why yes, Yuuri’s reaction to a confession bears a resemblance to Nozaki-kun’s, why do you ask?
