I'm Sorry Part 3.5
Warning: lots of violence, attempted murder, attempted suicide, and much much more blood and gore.
It’s rare for me to start the A/Ns with a warning but… The whole chapter is basically just that….. Sorry….
In the middle part, the POV changes back and forth to different places. Sorry if it will be confusing.
Fresh paced around the hallways as he waits for the doctor to come out of the room. He found Fika in a very narrow alleyway, already dying. He really hopes that Fika will be safe.
“Fresh, calm down.” Paperjam hugged fresh from behind. Fresh just nodded and sighed.
A few minutes later, familiar voices called out to them.
“Fresh!” Fresh looked at the direction of the voice and saw Xahji. She has a worried look on her face, tears threatening to fall.
“X-xahji….” Fresh looked behind Xahji and noticed the worried Idle and Siren. Colonna is there as well. But for some reason….. She looks like she is faking it…. Fresh must be overthinking it.
“Where’s Fika?! Is she alright?” Idle asked worryingly.
“We don’t know yet…… ” Fresh responded.
“Poor Fika…” Colonna said with fake concern.
“Let’s just wait… For now….” Fresh said as they sat.
A few minutes later which felt like hours, the doctor finally came out.
“Doctor!” Idle rushed to the doctor and grabbed her coat.
“How is she?” Siren questioned.
“Her vocal cord is damaged. She won’t be able to apeak from now on. And she had a lot of blood loss. She would need hours or maybe days befor she wakes up. But I can assure you that she will live.” The doctor said as she removed Idle’s hands gently.
“Thank you.” Paper jam said.
“You can enter the room now but be gentle. Call me when needed.” The doc said and left them.
Idle quickly bursted into the room. He rushed to Fika’s side.
“Fika…. I’m sorry you had to suffer for this…..” Idle apologized hoping that he hears her.
“Idle, don’t blame yourself.” Colonna held his shoulders.
“But it IS my fault!” Idle’s tears started to fall.
“No it’s not.” Xahji hugged Idle.
“B-but-” Idle started only to be cut off by a kiss.
“Look, Idle. It’s not your fault. It’s no one’s fault. Let’s just make sure that Fika is ok.” Siren said. No one noticed the frown that Colonna was giving though.
“I’ll stay here to watch on Fika. Someone has to guard her, y'know.” Fresh said.
“You sure? You’ll be skipping class.” Colonna confirmed.
“I’ll be fine. One absent won’t hurt.” Fresh assured her.
“Plus, I’ll be with him the whole time.” Paperjam added.
“Ok….” Idle nodded and left the room with Siren, Xahji and Colonna.
“Now….” PaperJam pulled Fresh by the waist. “We finally have time for ourselves~” He kissed Fresh suddenly, earning a slight reaction from him.
“Mmmf~!” Fresh felt PaperJam penetrate his mouth. He pushed PJ away, blushing.
“P-paperJam… We are in a hospital….. This isn’t a place where we should do it now…..” Fresh said, embarrassed. “Plus, Fika might wake up any minute…”
“Freshy…. You’re no fun, today.” PaperJam leaned his head on the crook of Fresh’s neck.
“We just…. Can’t do it here….” Fresh looked away.
“How about tonight~?” PaperJam smirked when he saw Fresh’s blush darken.
(Me: Meanwhile, with the tailed jerk, clueless idiot, one-eyed monster and the psychopatic yandere~)
(Siren, Idle, Xahji & Colonna: Excuse us?!?!)
(Me: Ok, ok. Meanwhile, with the four friends~)
“I can’t believe this….” Xahji thought outloud.
“Fika was one of the few friends I have….” Idle sighed.
“She did nothing wrong to deserve this.” Siren growled with anger.
“Whoever could have done this?” Colonna asked to nobody in particular.
They all just sighed in unison. They were walkng back to the school since it’d only a 25-minute walk to the hospital.
“Poor Fika…” Idle murmured.
“Hey, guys. Let’s just go back and inform everyone in class.” Colonna said.
They all agreed.
“They have the right to know.” Siren told them.
“I’m gonna tell Goth to tell Palette. The captain and the nurse were close, afterall.” Xahji informed her friends.
“I’ll…. Go tell Cray….and maybe Cil….” Idle looked down at his feet, some of his tears still escaped.
“Idle….” Siren hugged his boyfriend tightly.
“I’ll go tell My bros….. And maybe the teachers, I guess….” Siren looked to the side.
“I’ll… Tell our classmates then.” Colonna kept walking ahead of her friends.
“Let’s just hope that she’ll be fine.” They all nodded until finally, they reached the school.
~time skip brought to you by cliche~
Colonna rushed to the clinic and took the poison. Good thing that she stole Fika’s keys before she stabbed her to half-death.
Her plan has officially started.
“This will work. Fika is in the hospital, Snazzy and Cil have practice, Xahji’s helping Goth in fixing the library, Swifty and Cray are preparing for the next UnderHigh News, Idle is with them… But I can call him here…” Colonna thought to herself.
“Just gotta prepare the suicide letter, the food, the poison and my trusty knife just in case.” Colonna pulled out her knife. Her favorite one to use in killing people. Yes, this wasn’t the first time.
There were multiple cases of dissapearance of students in their school. And it’s all because they either had a crush on Siren or they got too close to him.
“Oh Siren-pai, we will be together soon. I promise…” She hid the knife in her knife pocket under her skirt. That way, it won’t be too obvious.
She poured the poison in the food and decided to call Idle for an invitation for snacks.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
“Hello?” She smiled when she heard Idle.
“Hey, Idle. You busy? I was wondering if we could have a snack together today.” Colonna said innocently.
“Sure! I’ll just have to finish some things here.” Idle smiled.
“Ok! I’m willing to wait.” Waiting isn’t a problem for her, anymore. It’s all calculated. “See you on the roof top.”
“I’ll be there in 20 min i guess.” Idle chuckled and hung up the phone.
After poisoning Idle, she could just throw him off the railings down the dumpster next to the school’s incinerator. She prepared everything beforehand.
By lunch, the delinquents aren’t there, guarding. If she ever had to use her knife, she could still throw the body there and use the door on the west. That place isn’t crowded plus, it was almost time for school to end, anyways.
“Everything is flowing according to plan. And his 20 minutes has started. Its…. 5:25.” Colonna smirked and waited for the clueless Idle to go.
“Ugh….. This is such a pain…..” Xahji complained as she put down a box above the three other boxes.
“Hey, Xahji. Need help?” A voice said.
“Oh. Hey, Dance. I was just about to take these to my clubroom.” Xahji said. “But they are too heavy.”
“I can help you.” Dance suggested.
“Really? It won’t bother you, would it?” Xahji asked.
“Nah. Not a single bit.” Dance smiled as he picked up the two heavier boxes.
“Ok. Thanks.” Xahji said and picked up the other two boxes.
“It’s almost 10 hours…” Fresh sighed as she looked at Fika with worried eyes.
“She’ll be fine.” PaperJam said while playing in his phone.
“You always say that.” Fresh frowned and looked at PaperJam.
“Because it’s the truth.” PaperJam said.
“But she’s been asleep. For 10 hours!” Fresh shouted the last part.
“So? She will wake up soon, Fresh! Justcalm down!” He heard a game over in his phone. “Great. Now, look. I lost.”
“So what?! Fika is much more important!” Fresh shouted before he heard a groan.
He looked at Fika moving. He rushed to her side and held her hand.
“Fika? Fika can you hear me? Paperjam call the doctor!” Fresh stated in panic and relief.
“Got it.” PaperJam pushed the button and alerted the nurses that Fika is awake.
“Fika, you’re safe now. We’re here.” Fresh smiled.
“F…..fresh…?” Fike tried to talk but it hurt. She can’t speak and it hurts when she tries. But she has to warn them.
“I’m here, Fika. You’re safe.” Fresh assured her. “Don’t force yourself to talk.”
“P….lease…. S….save…. I… Idle.” Her voice was hoarse and and broken. “He’s in danger….”
“Why would he be in danger?” Paperjam asked. “Do you remember who did this?”
“C…..colo…..nna….” That was what she said, tears running down her face before the nurses bursted into the room.
Fresh gasped. “Colonna?”
“Sorry, sirs but we have to get you out of this room.” Fresh and PaperJam nodded before rushing to the school.
“We have to save Idle! Colonna could kill him!” Fresh said as they exit the hospital.
“Hop on!” Paperjam threw Fresh a helmet before starting his motorcycle. It’ll be faster than running. You can reach school in 8 minutes.
They rushed to the school’s direction as fast as they can.
Idle wrote down the last details of his story and closed his new notebook. It will be such a cute twist that the girl meets her own doppleganger!
Idle smiled and hid his notebook.
“Now, to meet Colly.” Idle looked at his watch. “It’s 5:39 pm. Better head there now.” He whispered to himself.
“Hey, Swifty, Cray, I’ll be on the rooftop with Colly if you need me.” Idle shouted.
“Okie dokie!” Cray shouted back. Swifty juat gave him a thumb’s up.
“See you later!” Idle waved and headed for the rooftop.
“Here we are!” Fresh shouted. The two of them parked the motor and removed their helmets to rush to the UHN office.
As they were running there, Siren stopped them.
“Siren, what the fuck! Let us go!” PaperJam demanded.
“Why are you even running? That’s against the rules!” Siren scolded.
“Please, Siren. We have to go to UHN. Idle’s in danger!” This made him shocked. He let them go.
“Where is he?” Siren said, tattoos glowing a bit.
“We don’t know yet. But he might be in their clubroom.“ Fresh said.
"Let’s go, then.” The three of them rushed to where The clubroom is located.
“Ouuuuch….” Xahji complained.
“That still looks heavy. Need me to take the other one?” Dance asked, stooping for Xahji.
“No, thank you. I bothered you enough.” Xahji smiled.
“Ok.” Dance said.
“Xahji!” Snazzy shouted.
“Hey, Zee. Hey, Cil. Whatcha doin?” Xahji asked.
“Oh. Practice was over so I oughta might visit ya in the Library. But it seems that you have company.” Snazzy glared at Dance.
“Zee, he was just coincidentally there when I needed help. Geez.” Xahji smiled.
“But still. You shouldn’t trust some random guy. Especially when I don’t know them.” Snazzy said with a hint of jealousy.
“Aww, is Snazzy jealous?” Cil asked laughed.
“Wha-no!"Snazzy blushed. Xahji and Dance laughed.
"I have no plan to steal your girlfriend, Zee.” Dance chuckled.
“First of all, only Xahji can call me that. Second, don’t try me.” Snazzy said.
“Ok, ok. Calm down, boys.” Xahji said.
“Let me help you with that, mi amore.” Snazzy said with Xahji and kissed her on the forehead. He took the two boxes from Xahji .
“T-thanks…” Xahji blushes a bit.
“So, where do we take these?” Snazzy asked.
“At the clubroom.” Xahji stretched.
“Ok, then.” Snazzy smiled and walked between Xahji and Dance to the clubroom. Cil was just amused at Snazzy getting jealous.
“Who are we gonna interview next?” Swifty asked.
“The basketball team, of course!” Cray grinned. “We’ll have a big ambush interview!”
“Ok. Let’s get started.” Swifty answered as the door opens.
“Hey, Swifty. Hey, Cray.” Xahji waved.
“Oh, hey Xahji! Hey, Snazzy! Cil! What a surprise! And….” Cray leaned to the side and saw Dance. “It seems like we have a visitor.”
“Oh. This is Dance. A childhood friend of mine.” Xahji introduced him.
“Hey. I’m Dance. Nice to meet you.” Hesaid as he put down the boxes.
“Nice to know you too.” Cray’s smile widened.
“Whatare these for, bro?” Swifty asked to Snazzy.
“These? Just some books.” Snazzy said.
“My bro wanted to stock these here in the clubroom. He said that they’d be useful.” Xahji said.
“There are probs 30 books in each box.” Cil wondered.
“Uh huh.” Dance agreed.
“Well, it’s great that we’re finally done with these.” Snazzy stretched. “They were quite heavy.”
“I had to agree.” Dance nodded. “It would be hard to carry all of these on your own, right J?” Dance said to Xahji.
“Stop calling me with that nickname. Blegh.” Xahji complained.
Snazzy just glared at Dance as Swifty, Cray and Cil giggled at the background.
“So Fika is fine?” Siren asked as they ran.
“Yeah. She also warned us about Colonna.” Fresh answered.
“What about her?” Siren raised his eyebrow.
“She is Fika’s-” PaperJam started but was cut when they reached the clubroom.
“Guys! Bad news!” Fresh slammed the door open.
“Bro! What happened?” Cil rushed to PaperJam’s side.
“No time to explain. Where is Idle?” PaperJam demanded.
“O-on the rooftop with Colly. Why?” Cray answered.
“What?!” Fresh and Paperjam Shouted in unison.
“We gotta go. Now.” PaperJam was ready to run but was stopped by Swifty.
“We’re coming with you.” Cil said firmly.
“Ok, good. But we have to hurry.” Paperjam said.
“We will stay here. We still gotta do something.” Xahji said.
“You’re not coming with us?”
“We’ll catch up.” Snazzy assured them.
“Ok. Come on!” Swifty, Siren, Dance, Cil, PaperJam, Fresh and Cray rushed to the rooftop. There’s no time to waste.
Mun: RUN BOYS RUN!!!
