Kitsuna rolled her ruby eyes as she heard her sister swoon over Hajime.
Damn was it annoying. High school was bad enough, but now I have that to deal with as well. She thought.
She reached into her shoe locker to pull out her combat boots, the red haired girl paused feeling something that felt like paper. She pulled it out and looked at it.
An emerald green envelope was in her hand, with ‘Kitsuna’ written on the back in the most beautiful kanji. She turned it over to see the envelope was sealed with a blood red heart sticker.
Her blood red eyes stared at it, questioning who might have put it in there.
“What’s this then?” Uno all but sang as he ripped the letter out of her hand.
“Aww! Someone has a crush on Kitsuna-chan! Isn’t that adorable!?”
“Kitsuna?” The red head heard Hajime question, “Who would be stupid enough to make a move on her?”
A tick mark formed on the fox’s forehead from all the commotion.
“Let me see, Uno! Let me see!” Nico called jumping up to try to get the letter from the taller boy.
“No can do, Nico!” Uno sang, “It wouldn’t be fair if I let you see it before I read it outlou- Ak!”
Kitsuna’s patience snapped and she hit Uno hard on the back of the head, ripping the letter from his hand in the process.
“Has anyone ever told you before that nosing into other people’s business get’s you killed?” She snarled.
“Oh, come on Kitsuna, we just can’t contain our curiosity.” Rock defended.
“Curiosity killed the cat, Rock.” The red head growled.
“Awe!” The four of them whined in annoyance as the fox stuffed the letter into her pocket and grabbed her boots out of the locker to put them on.
“Do you just not want us to know about your boyfriend?” Uno teased.
“Leave her alone.” Momoko cut in, glaring at the long haired boy, causing him to recoil and back away quickly, “It’s non of your business.”
“Thanks, Momo-nee-chan.” Kitsuna mumbled to her sister as she finished putting on her combats and stood up, “I’ll see you at home.”
She picked up her backpack from the floor and trudged out of the school heading home. Ignoring everyone calling after her as she went.
Kitsuna groaned, knowing she was going to get an earful of this tomorrow.
She rounded the corner out of the school yard to head home and all but ran into someone.
“Sorry.” She muttered and tried to step around them.
“Is that all you have to say?” A shrill voice laughed, forcing her ruby eyes to look up from the sidewalk and look into the apple green eyes of one Samon Gokuu.
Kitsuna growled, “What do you want?” She demanded.
“Maybe you should learn some manners.” He smirked.
She rolled my eyes, “Maybe you should fuck off.”
She then stepped around him quickly and trudged forward away from him and his posy.
The red haired girl felt something get tugged out of the back pocket of her shorts. She whipped around to see Liang grinning as he looked over the emerald green envelope in his hands.
“What’s this then?” He teased, “A love note? Who’s it for Kitsuna-chan?”
She rolled her eyes and held out her hand, “Me. Now give it back.”
“What juicy details are in here?” He teased again.
“That’s not fair you get to read it and I don’t!” Uno all but yelled as he sprinted over to them.
“Aw, too embarrassed to read this in public, eh?” Liang teased.
“Liang, let it be.” Samon said under his breath.
“Let’s read it finally!” Uno cheered as he ripped the letter out of Liang’s hand and tore it open pulling out a pale green piece of paper.
“Your parents did right naming you, Kitsuna, as a fox is exactly what you are. Your eyes full of stars on a clear night, your smile as bright as early morning light, your laugh more sweet than a summer’s rain, and I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned your brain. So smart and determined, always at practice, I hope you don’t think my words are sarcastic. I could waste away hours watching you, with everything you do my passion for you renewed. I hope you don’t think less of me for hiding behind this letter, for I feel if I actually talk to you about this it would surely bring bad weather. I really wish for you to know in your heart that I think of you when we’re apart. Your secret admirer, -S”
Kitsuna’s face heated up as Uno read. The blonde looked up at her with a shit eating grin.
She lunged forward and snatched the letter out of his hand and kicked his legs out from under him.
“Alright 11, you think that’s really funny! How about you tell me how long it took you to write that huh!? Clearly you’re the one trying to pull one over on me!” The girl accused.
“It’s not me!” Uno yelled in defense and curling up in a ball, “I didn’t do anything about it, obviously you actually have a secret admirer! I don’t know how anyone could think any of that about you!”
Kitsuna glared up at everyone around her, while Uno was reading everyone else showed up and crowded around them.
“Whoever thought it would be funny to do this, I suggest you stop before you get hurt. I don’t find this amusing.” She then turned and stormed off back home, heat still filling her face.
There was no way that was serious. No one would dare. She thought as she trudged on.
She took a few deep breaths to clam herself.
She knew exactly how to find out who it was.
“Homework on a weekend… Damn that teacher!” Uno cried as he, Jyugo, Rock, Nico, Hajime, Hitoshi, and Kitsuna walked out of their class room and towards their show lockers.
“You complain too much, 11.” Hajime growled.
“Not everyone likes work, Hajime!” The blonde yelled at the taller man.
“What the?” Rock questioned, stopping dead in his tracks and causing Jyugo, Nico, Uno, and Hitoshi to crash into his back.
“What’s the big deal, Rock?” Uno all but yelled at the taller man, but as he peered around him, he realized why he stopped.
In between two rows of lockers there was a person hanging upside down, bound tightly in ropes, gagged, and wriggling around like their life depended on it.
“Kitsuna-chan, isn’t that guy hanging right in front of your locker?” Nico questioned hesitantly.
“Yes. Yes he is.” The red head smirked and strode forward towards the hanging boy. She gripped his hair and turned him around to face her.
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t Samon Gokuu.” She grinned.
The tied up monkey froze as bullets of sweat started pouring off of him. He knew deep down that he was about to be killed.
“Kitsuna, what the hell did you do?” Hajime all but exploded at the girl.
“I wanted to see who was stupid enough to leave me notes in my locker. Looks like I found him.” The red eyed girl growled.
“Kitsuna-chan, I would hurry up and cut him down before the principal comes and sees this. You don’t want to get expelled, do you?” Hitoshi called out to the girl.
“I probably should, shouldn’t I?” Kitsuna teased as she circled the boy, slowly pulling out her pocket knife and raising it to use it.
“Kitsuna, no!” Jyugo yelled but it was too late.
The rope holding the monkey up was already cut and he let out a shriek before falling to the ground with a thud.
The girl’s classmates all stared at her like she was insane as she pocketed her knife again. The red haired girl looked up at them, gave them a confused look for a moment before she shrugged and turned back to the issue at hand.
She knelt down and pulled the rope gagging the monkey out of his mouth so he could speak.
“So it’s been you, huh?”
Samon scoffed, “Have you ever heard of a joke?”
Kitsuna rolled her eyes, “Most jokes like this consist of vague and, rather standard comments and compliments. You actually went into depth with all the notes you’ve left.”
“All?” Uno all but yelled, “You’ve only gotten one?”
“That you know of.” The fox smirked at the boy before turning back to the red head still tied up.
“I was dedicated.” Samon growled.
“Or desperate.” Kitsuna sighed, “You know, if it was a joke, which I’m still not convinced it was, it was very sweet. I never knew you had a romantic side, Samon.”
By this time the monkey’s face was beat red. He didn’t have any good excuse anymore so he just turned his head away so he wouldn’t have to face the red eyed girl.
Kitsuna sighed in content again before she reached back into her pocket and pulled out her knife, cutting the green eyed boy free.
Samon finally hand his limbs free, with his new found movement he pushed himself up from the ground and onto his feet. Dusting himself off soon after.
“You should know better than to tie random people up like that, fox.” He growled.
Kitsuna rolled her eyes as she pulled her combat boots on, “And maybe now you’ll know not to put random things in other people’s lockers.”
Samon crossed his arms and turned away from the girl rather childishly, “You should be happy I gave you my attention. I mean, who would want to go out with you?” He scoffed.
“You.” She muttered standing straight up and grabbing her backpack, “That is if you want to.” She offered.
Samon’s face was once again red as the girl’s eyes, “Pardon?” He questioned.
“Would you like to go get ice cream with me, Samon?” She grinned.
The green eyed boy sputtered for a moment before he regained his composure, crossing his arms tightly, “Only because you know my one weakness. But I’m buying!”
The girl held back a laugh, “If you insist.”
She then started out of the school, leaving the boy to stand there with his nose turned up and his arms still corssed. Samon realized and started after her. Though he convinced himself it was because he didn’t want to be in that school any longer than was necessary, and not because he actually wanted to go out with the fox.
The boys who were still standing in the lobby of the school blinked, trying to register what exactly had gone down.
“Everyone else saw that too, right?” Uno was the one to break the silence.
“Yeah.” Just about everyone replied.
Hajime sighed and rubbed his temple. He should have known it was the monkey doing that. He knew for the longest time that the two had unspoken feelings for one another, they were just too stubborn to let it through.
But now his main concern was not the new…. happy? Couple. It was the yelling children beside him who were going crazy after seeing that interaction.
He made a mental note to smack both red heads for it, as it was due to them he was about to get horrible stomach cramps.
