suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

Her.

The word echoed in Theo’s mind hours after the fact, despite his friend that said him not interacting with him since.

How the hell was he going to transform Chihiro Ogino, Sacred Heart’s resident clumsy weird girl into the prom queen in six weeks?

A mere impossible feat that would only tarnish his own reputation when he inevitably failed to deliver. It seemed that this would be yet another nail in his own grave due to the fact that his girlfriend Katrina had dumped him earlier that day. They had just come back from spring break and while she was gone in Cabo, she met some guy that was apparently in a big reality tv show that he had never heard of before today. Needless to say, Theo was not particularly happy with the situation, especially seeing that they were the power couple of the school and #Thatrina was practically everyone’s favorite pairing (at least that was what his friends told him). He was sure that all of the other guys in the senior class were somewhat happy about this breakup, probably thinking that they could get a piece of her ass, which probably wouldn't happen due to her involvement with the reality tv guy.

To top it off, he took on the dare to turn any girl in the school into a winning contender for only the most sought after position for girls in the senior class: prom queen. That was a position that was going to be practically to given to his now-ex Katrina due to her popularity and position as the school's it-girl. Theo had never even spoken a word to Chihiro before in his entire life and he had no plans of doing so before now. They had never had a class together before or probably even any shared interests, making this encounter probably even more awkward.

Despite being the captain of the team, he made the executive decision to blow off lacrosse practice, since he needed to make some sort of interaction with his project before he changed anything too drastically. Theo didn't even know where she hung out after school, but he knew that with a little bit of searchign he could find her. It ended up only taking him five or ten minutes to find her and he slowly approached her from the front, as to not startle her. Once he was in hearing distance, he did a small wave before sidling up next to her. "Hey there. Chihiro is it?"

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts.
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers!
Was he looking at her? He couldn’t be… he was Theo Preston… most popular guy in Sacred Heart High School, Captain of the Lacrosse team, and apparent (not that she agreed) total hottie. He was not someone who familiarized himself with those considered to be on lower levels of the social totem pole, which as far as she knew, she was close to the bottom. It wasn’t a bad thing, at least not in her eyes, but for so many others the social hierarchy was vastly important.

Chihiro knew she was weird, knew that she didn’t fit in. She was clumsy and falling over herself and others at any given point, wearing her lunch most days, and others making some other poor kid wear it… and if that wasn’t enough social suicide—making herself such an easy target for bullies to prey on, that is—she was in the creative writing club which was just a peg lower than art club and even Marching Band. But it never bothered her, she had her friends, amazing as they were, and she knew she wouldn’t stay in town much longer after graduation as it were either… but moments like this one, when her dark eyes met with his, that she felt flustered and confused for all the reasons she knew she shouldn’t. Popular kids like Theo didn’t talk to her unless they wanted something, and she didn’t have much to offer since it wasn’t like she was a nerd… except maybe in English. Heck, she didn’t even know him other than by name and reputation alone, never even having had a class with him! So… he couldn’t possibly be looking at her… there had to be someone else behind her. Yeah…

Despite seeing him coming, her gaze darting back and forth like a nervous child in trouble, it still surprised her when he slid up beside her, a loud whimper of a gasp leaving her lips as she nearly dropped her bag at her feet. Her friend Tina, having had her back turned, raised a brow at them both, confusion evident on her features as she mirrored the look Chihiro wore. Shrugging her shoulders in response to the silent question Tina gave her, shaking her head slightly to explain she had no idea what was going on, the smaller girl slowly looked up to the boy beside her—offering a small smile of welcome. Theo had personally never done anything to harm her, she had no reason to question his appearance (save for him never talking to her before) and certainly she had no reason to not be the warm and friendly person she always was regardless of who she was around.

“Um… yeah… Th-that’s me. You... know my name?” she questioned incredulously, confusion in her voice, though her tone remained sweet. She shook her head quickly as she waved her question off. “Nevermind that, that’s dumb. What’s… up?” her tone was slightly skeptical as she asked, sharing a glance with Tina before looking back to the boy beside her.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

It had not taken very much for Theo to reach his position at the top of the social ladder. Ever since he was in elementary school, he had been a charismatic good-looking guy that was great at making new friends. This position was only cemented by the fact that he was dating Katrina, only the hottest girl in the entire school. Even though the two of them were no longer an item, and quite publicly so, he had no doubt that people would still adore him due to him being both the captain of the lacrosse team and the boy most likely to win the crown at prom. This prom king was not a position that was as sought after as it was for the female equivalent, but seeing that the winner got to dance with the Katrina Hector, most men were more than happy to try to be given this position. Hopefully, this was not the case and Chihiro got it, so that he would not have to do something probably incredibly embarrassing, even more so than Bryce broadcasting the fact that #Thatrina was over on the loudspeaker during announcements.

He could just tell that Chihiro was nervous, even as he approached her, with her awkwardly glancing around, probably assuming that no one like him would talk to someone like her. Theo managed to cut in before she said something to help further cement the fact that he actually knew her, not that he did. "Yeah... you're in the creative writing club, right?" He hadn't even known that until someone in his friend group had told him that earlier that day, after the bet had been made. Not that Chihiro would figure that out, seeing that she was quite flustered with him talking to her. "I was hoping that we could talk. In private," he said, glancing over at the dark-haired girl's friend, a red-head that he had only seen in passing beforehand and he figured that he didn't need to learn her name. The lacrosse captain had no desire for any other people, underlings specifically, to catch onto the project that he had been given. That would definitely not end well. Hopefully that other girl would get the hint and leave so he could try to work his way in with his subject and magically turn her into someone more amazing than Lizzy. This would take a lot of work though and he had no idea what he was really getting himself into.

He wanted to talk to her... in private? Her brows furrowed in confusion as he spoke, silence falling between the three as Chihiro traded glances with Tina. What could this possibly be about? If he was asking for help on a research paper or a book report why couldn't he ask in front of Tina? Unless he wasn't asking for help? But then... what did he need... from her? She had nothing to offer him... she was a nothing to people like him. What could he possibly want?

Teeth bit in to her lower lip as she looked between Tina, hoping the girl would stay and be her rock during this awkward situation, and Theo who seemed expectant for her to leave the two of them alone. And once again the question of what this guy wanted flooded her confused mind as she stood awkwardly holding her books against her chest. Popular boys like Theo did not seek out girls like her... not in high school, or even in life. It was just part of the hierarchy that honestly felt like just another way to alienate kids like her... awkward and judged for their hobbies because writing wasn't as normal as cheerleading or sports. And because she wasn't drop dead gorgeous with a slammin' (as they would say) body it only made it harder to be seen as anything more than the clumsy girl who wrote a dumb blog that got maybe 10 views, 4 of which were from herself wanting to check her views.

She swallowed when the ginger shrugged quietly and mentioned seeing her later at their favorite cafe for open mic night before pushing off the wall to leave, giving the boy a sideways glance as she hurried off. Tension settled between her and Theo when they were finally alone, Chihiro slowly turning to face him with knit brows, arms hugging her books tightly to her chest. "Are you... sure you're talking to the right person?" she questioned, awkwardly rolling from the balls of her feet to her heels. Dark eyes blinked up at him, glancing around the hall, still half convinced he had sought out the wrong person. But when she realized they were alone, awkwardly alone, she could only surmise that Theo Preston, the Theo Preston was talking to her... purposefully. She felt her cheeks flush and she looked away, down to her feet.

"Sorry?" she apologized quickly for her actions. Shrugging, she sighed. "Guys like you just don't normally talk to me is all. It's weird..." she explained nervously.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

Normally, Theo didn't really talk to those in the lower social circles. He really had no need to, seeing that he did have pretty good grades (with the exception of Spanish) and always had someone to pair up with for group projects and such, unless the teacher made their own pairings, which he typically did not appreciate one bit. He still was kicking himself for making the bet, as it was probably going to be impossible to due such a thing, seeing that the campaigning started only in two weeks. There was just far too many things to do in such a short time period and Theo had a feeling that he would not be able to do this all by himself. He already knew that these next few weeks were going to be very stressful, but only if he could actually convince Chihiro to go along with it.

He was at least somewhat relieved when the redhead finally left, leaving the two of them alone. The lacrosse captain could still just tell how confused and nervous the girl was, but hopefully he had some answers (not all of them as the bet was most definitely not going to be revealed to her like ever). "Yeah... unless you're not Chihiro Ogino." He was pretty sure that he had found the right girl, as he had looked her up in last year's yearbook and asked around with some of the artsier popular kids. Theo ran a hand through his hair out of boredom, as he searched his mind to try to word the next question right. Luckily, he didn't have to due the Chihiro's next comment.

"Hey, it's alright. No need to apologize." The brunet felt the need to raise an eyebrow at what she said after that, mostly just so he wouldn't come across as too unsurprised at the statement. He was more than aware of that. "Yeah, don't know why honestly. You seem pretty cool." Another lie, but who would figure that out? He swiftly and sneakily gave her a once-over trying to figure out how much work she needed. She was potentially pretty; she just needed some polishing. "Let's go for a walk. I want to get to know you, since I only really know that you like writing a lot." Hopefully not too forward as he had no romantic interest in this girl, but some baseline of information would be nice going forward.

You seem pretty cool. The words left his mouth and she couldn’t believe what she heard. She stared at him with a confused look on her face, searching it for any sort of indication that he was lying… but she couldn’t for the life of her find it. If he was lying, which she thought he was despite her naïve and trusting nature, he was doing a very good job of it. Maybe this was why so many people liked him and wanted to be friends with him, she surmised silently to herself as she almost shrunk beneath his gaze.

Chihiro had no qualms with Theo… he had never done anything to upset her or bully her during her entire school career. She had no reason to suspect or worry, but it still felt odd that a guy in his station in life at their school would find himself in her presence. It would be like a King taking interest in a specific peasant of his country, but unlike the romance novels where they fell in love and lived happily ever after, this just didn’t make sense. Regardless of intention though, as hard as it was to discern by the simple exchange they’ve had, he was there standing in front of her and she couldn’t ignore that because she felt little more and completely and utterly baffled.

Biting her bottom lip, she turned away from the boy to face her locker, passively going through the motions of unlocking it and pulling it open. He wanted to go for a walk? To get to know her? For a moment she wondered if she was hearing things as well as seeing them… but he remained behind her, patiently waiting for her to agree (as if she had any other choice). This wasn’t some awkward dream… and despite not believing it… it was very much happening. Tina would never believe her… she hardly believed it herself.

The few seconds with her back to him were a godsend in the moments, giving her time to compose herself in those moments as she put her books away and grabbed her prized (albeit secondhand) TokiDoki backpack. Taking the few extra seconds to double check her homework was all there, she gently tossed the satchel over her shoulder and closed the locker with a ginger touch. Summoning a breath she waited half a beat before turning back around to face him, giving him a quizzical look as she gripped almost nervously to the straps. “But… why?” she requested, her tone stern but polite. It was a logical question that she thought she rightfully deserved the answer to. It would be one thing if one of the band kids came to her, or one of the art kids… but Mr. Popularity himself? She couldn’t be blamed for her curiosity.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

He had absolutely no idea if he was fooling Chihiro. For the most part, his friends and family could see through his bullshit and were more than happy to call him on it. However, he was pretty sure that this girl would not, seeing that she was already just so awkward and timid when being around him. Lying wasn't necessarily second nature to him, but let's just say that he was not a stranger to it. It was never anything super big, typically just small stuff here and there, like whether or not Katrina looked nice in a dress (it was not complimentary of her figure at all) or his friend asking if he would get into Stanford (absolutely not as a parent's donation would only do so much for a 2.9 GPA). This was no exception.

Theo could just tell that this current line of lies might have been too much for himself. He might have gotten too deep. So cool? Want to get to know her? What the hell was he thinking? Preston, get it together, he mentally yelled at himself, as he waited for Chihiro to deposit her books into her locker and retrieve her colorful (and childish) backpack. His mind was racing as he tried to figure out an answer to what she said next, the simplicity of the question almost throwing him off his stride. Luckily, he had a half-baked answer already formulated that he decided to edit on the fly. "Sorry, I'm just a big fan of your writing and I was hoping for, like, some tips." That much was true. He had read her blog during AP Statistics class today, rather than pay attention to whatever nonsense about t-scores his teacher was waxing on about. She was a very talented writer, something he had never really excelled at. Dropping his voice down to almost a conspiratorial whisper, he almost felt himself care about this girl. "I know, sounds fake and all, but you are really good at it. Like you could totally do it for a job."

There was a moment where she thought she had asked enough questions she had caught him in something, a moment where it looked like maybe he didn’t know what to say. And in that moment she felt her heart racing against her ribcage, her cheeks flushed crimson. Was this a new bullying tactic? She had read articles and of course watched TV shows where hot guys ask nerdy, ugly girls out as a joke and bring them all to what is later revealed to be a “dog” party… but was this really happening to her? Was Theo really going to step over the line of harmless individual who just didn’t know she existed and become the cruel soul most people not as high on the totem pole of high school hierarchy saw? She felt the prickle of tears in her eyes as realization started to dawn on her… but then… the moment passed and she was met with what was seemingly a genuine guy.

Chihiro felt herself blinking a couple times, allowing him to continue speaking as she tried to pick up the crumbled pieces of her resolve that almost fell apart by her feet. She wasn’t the strongest soul, susceptible to more of the mental games bullies played than the physical ones of being beaten up or having her things ruined, and thus likely would have broken down embarrassingly in front of him if she had somehow caught him. Thankfully, that didn’t happen, and rather than spending her night crying and asking herself why she couldn’t be pretty like the other girls (like Katrina) or why she could never fit in no matter how hard she tried, letting Tina try and fail to console her… she would spend it obviously confused and asking what she should do. But that thinking would have to come later… when she had all the time in the world instead of a popular, cute boy asking to talk to her. It still didn’t feel right though.

“You… read my blog?” she asked surprised, her dark eyes looking almost hopeful as she regarded him, curious and wondering if he was one of the four random views she got. Though random adventures about river spirits, dragons, and haunted Japanese bathhouses didn’t honestly seem to fit his vibe. But then again, maybe there was more to Theo Preston than the Lacrosse jock he wanted everyone else to see. Just like there was more to her than what met the eye… if only someone took the time to look instead of judging her… something she realized she was doing to him in those moments. Swallowing the lump in her throat, she summoned a breath, pushing herself off the locker and starting a slow walk toward the exit without answering if she would walk with him. “I never took you for a writer… what’re you working on?” she questioned as she fleetingly peered over her shoulder, unable to hide the small smile on her lips that his compliment gave her.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

Even though he could be construed as such, Theo did not believe that he was a bully. He never went out of his way to make another person's life miserable in college through his words or actions, unless it was at mock trial where he was tearing apart someone's argument or on the field where he was roughly pushing someone away as he attempted a goal. His friends, however, were a different case. They could be cruel at times, making inappropriate comments in regards to some of their less popular classmates, but the main issue was that Theo did nothing about it. His position at the top of the social ladder was cemented by this point, as there was not much time left before the end of high school. He had no reason to stand up for the underlings at the moment, even though he had been coerced into making over this girl.

After offering her a small kind smile, the lacrosse captain decided to embellish a bit on his story, but there was obviously no way that she would figure out that this was not the case. "Yeah, I stumbled upon it not too long ago and your stories were fascinating. I don't believe that I've read anything quite like them before." Theo didn't mind complimenting Chihiro's work, seeing that he did actually enjoy her works and knew that he needed to butter her up a whole lot to help ensure that this plan went in his favor. He still needed to get his sister, Cordelia, to agree to helping him out, but that was for tonight. The brunet started after the girl, relieved to see that she actually believed him. "Nothing in particular. I've been dealing with a bit of writer's block as of late, unfortunately." He sighed at his mention of his inability to write, internally rolling his eyes at all of the things that he was saying. He deserved a goddamn Oscar once this nonsense was over with. "I do enjoy writing short stories about..." What the hell would he actually write about? He eventually settled on something simple enough that he could bullshit when it came down to it. "Mysteries and court cases and stuff. Just don't tell anyone. It's kind of a thing I don't talk to many people about."

She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers!
The realization that she was treating him like all the bullies treated her was a hard pill to swallow. She had thought herself more open minded than to think the worst in someone she didn’t know. Though theory and practice were always different. It was one thing for her to, in theory, believe that she saw the best in people no matter what—defend them when others threw their names under the bus. But it was something else entirely when she had to put it in to practice. She had made presumptuous judgments based singularly on his social status, ignoring that he had quite literally done nothing wrong. Sure, it was weird, but that was no excuse for her poor behavior. It only made her as bad as the others. She owed it to Theo to give him the benefit of the doubt…

Her cheeks flushed a bright red at his compliment, and she had to look away, her eyes cast downward as she watched her feet. She didn’t know quite how to react to something so nicely said about her work, she was used to only letting Tina read and the few viewers who found her blog by chance… she didn’t even showcase it at open mic night at their favorite coffee house, instead too nervous and shy to even go up and read anything she had written—short story or not. Laughing nervously, the smaller girl awkwardly tucked a loose strand of hair from her high ponytail, still avoiding the male’s gaze. “Well… thank you… I guess?” If she wasn’t with someone she would have facepalmed, instead she had to mentally shake her head at herself… Kami she needed to learn to take a compliment.

Ignoring the rest of his comment, deciding it as better to not let the flattery get to her since she clearly couldn’t handle it, she furrowed her brows. Part of her wondered why he was confiding in her about his writing if he was adamant about few people knowing about it, though talking to a stranger had no repercussions. Of course she could easily broadcast it if she wanted, but what would the point be? Besides, it wasn’t like she was the kind of person to do something, especially if the writing this was as personal as he made it out to be. Sighing, she finally looked up to him, offering a meek half smile and a shrug.

“Writers block is the worst.” she admitted, unwrapping her fingers from around the strap of her backpack, confused what she should do with her hands. She normally was an animated person, probably why she was as clumsy as she was, but she wanted to be on her best behavior… first impressions were everything. She settled for clasping her hands together in front of her, albeit awkwardly. “I won’t tell anyone,” she reassured with a smile. “But I’d love to return the favor and read some of your work… if you’re having writers block you could bounce ideas off of me,” she offered sweetly.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

Theo sometimes wished that he didn't get himself into things just because his friends dared him to do it. They knew that this was the way to get him to practically do anything, as he did not want to be referred to as a chicken or something similar. That was practically soul crushing for him and his friends even referred to him as McFly, like the Back to the Future character, due this shared character flaw. "You are very welcome. You shouldn't be so shy about accepting compliments since they are true." He didn't mind letting the compliments flow fairly freely as it made stuff that occurred in the future move more smoothly due to him making a clear and strong rapport with his project, Chihiro. That was most important in his mind for now.

"I agree." Writer's block.... short stories... where the hell was he going with this lie? Hopefully it wouldn't get too large for him to keep going. Theo had no desire to let his friends win this one. At least this gave him time to handwrite something that he could show her at some future date. "But ideas, I got plenty, but I don't know where to begin or move them towards or whatever. They're very disjointed, if that makes any sense. Some insight would be really appreciated, especially from a fellow writer." Theo offered him a hopeful smile, as his mind worked to try to think of ideas that would potentially work for mystery stories or whatever. Maybe he could use topics from mock trial or something very similar to them. There were plenty of dramatic court cases that they covered.

“I’ll uh… take that in to consideration…” she offered, her cheeks flushed as she looked awkwardly at her feet. While a part of her did agree that she needed to learn to accept compliments better than she did, the fact of the matter was she didn’t often get them. She wasn’t very vocal about her work, very rarely let people who weren’t faceless internet trolls read it… and most certainly she didn’t get up on open mic nights to share—so it was very rare she got compliments. And it wasn’t like she was beautiful either and got those sorts of compliments to accept and acknowledge gracefully… so she didn’t have very many chances to learn. But she wasn’t about to go explaining that to him… Someone like Theo wouldn’t understand, not when he was one of the hottest boys in school and talented and intelligent too. He was the whole package, she doubted compliments were in short supply.

Looking to him as he explained the trouble he was having with his writing, she was silent, her head nodding as he tried to vocalize the troubles he was having. Some part of her still had a hard time wrapping he head around him as a writer. Sure he was smart and had a bright future ahead of him, but he didn’t seem like the type to sit down often and write for the fun of it. But she knew she couldn’t let personal thoughts and reputations make her mind up about someone. Behind his perfect hair and deep eyes could very well be the heart of a writer and she wasn’t going to squander whatever inspiration he had by judging him.

“It sounds to me that you’re having a hard time finding a flow because your head is stuck in the beginning,” Chihiro offered, smiling. Stopping her movement she turned to face him, “When I get too stuck in my head about trying to find a beginning and nothing seems right and I just delete it all the time…” she explained, her hands flailing slightly in front of her as if he would understand the gestures, “I find it easier to forget the beginning and start in the middle somewhere randomly…”[b] she paused… biting her bottom lip.[b] “Like… throwing caution to the wind and seeing where it goes… Write what you want instead of worrying about context. You can always come back later and add it when you get a flow.”

Her cheeks flushed and she turned away, picking her pace back up slowly so he could follow again if he wanted. It wasn’t often she got to talk to someone about writing other than Tina… and despite the awkward company, it felt good. But what she just said was a quick way to being laughed at, high school kids extremely cruel when it came to passions other than sports or fashion. She cleared her throat, shrugging nervously. “Uh... sorry... I get carried away...” she offered with a nervous laugh.

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

"Good." Chihiro was clearly a talented girl, even in Theo's probably not important opinion when it came to things just like this, and her attempting to brush aside his actually genuine compliments was definitely something that he mentally noted that she needed to work on. Self confidence was very important, especially for something like a prom queen candidate, who needed to effectively campaign and argue in favor of their cause. It was practically like running for a position in student council, except definitely a lot more pettiness was involved.

Theo listened to what the dark-haired girl was saying. Even though he technically was not a writer, she was still giving him lots of valid points, as he did struggle sometimes with writing essays and other assignments for English class. That was not his forte by any means, but it was a necessary class that he had to take, so he didn't really have much of a choice on the matter. "Wow. That-that makes a lot of sense. Like sometimes I'll imagine ideas for storylines, but when I actually sit down to do it, I'm too busy criticizing them rather than giving them a chance and trying to write them." He was kind of glad that his buddies had ended up picking this girl, as she wasn't all that bad, unlike some of the more popular girls that he tended to spend more time with.

"Don't worry about it, you've been super helpful. And I really appreciate it. When I get home, I think I'm going to try to use your advice to get back into writing. It's been far too long since I've actually sat down and tried to do something productive." This meeting had been somewhat prosperous, and had gone much better than he had originally assumed after Chihiro had been chosen earlier. "Hey, well I gotta run to practice, but is it possible to get your phone number? In case I have ideas that I need to bounce off someone?" Theo raised an eyebrow, a small smile on his lips.

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts.
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers!
Her… her phone number? Had he just asked her for her number? As if this moment wasn’t weird enough, he was asking for her number? Of course, Chihiro knew it wasn’t because he wanted to stay up late texting about nothing and talking about whatever… She knew that he wasn’t flirting, and it likely meant little more than a connection to help him with his work. But all the same… Theo Preston has asked her for her number! Tina would never believe her… Kami, she didn’t believe her and she was right there—awkwardly gawking at him after stumbling over her own two dumb feet. But he did. They had not only had a rather decent conversation, surprising as it was, and now… now he was getting her phone number.

The girl swallowed awkwardly as she caught her balance, thankful she hadn’t completely tripped and had the contents of her backpack scattering across the floor of the hall, but embarrassed enough that her cheeks burned brightly. She laughed nervously and looked away, unable to meet his eyes as he waited for her answer. She knew she wasn’t going to deny him, it wasn’t like her to say no to someone without reason, especially since he had proved a point she so often made that people weren’t always what they seemed. Theo was a jock, and he did hang out with questionable people… but that didn’t make him questionable or mean himself. This conversation proved it! But it didn’t make the answer any easier coming to her lips.

“R-Really?” The response stumbled clumsily out of her mouth, her tone a mix of surprise, disbelief, and even hopeful excitement. She shook her head quickly, a motion for him to disregard her words before she pulled her backpack in front of her. Dark eyes focused on the contents of her bag as she rifled through, slowly pulling out her inspiration journal that was covered in bright pink cherry blossoms. “What I meant is… sure…” she added, indiscriminately pulling out a page and using the attached pink gel pen to scribble down her name and phone number. Looked up, she handed the folded over piece of scrap paper and gave him a smile. “I uh… Give me a call or text if you need anything…” she offered, looking away as she put the journal back in to her bag. Her cheeks were still warm as she zipped it up and resituated it on her back, side stepping the boy so she could get to the nearest exit and find Tina to tell her what happened. “Have a good practice! Sayonara!” she called out, waving to him before moving past him to leave. Kami… no one would believe her…

suddenly tomorrow is not just tomorrow

There were a lot of things running through Theo’s head at the moment. Aside from the laundry list of lies that he had come up with, he also had various other things that he needed to get done to help ensure that this girl, a supposedly hopeless cause, would win the much coveted prom queen title. As it was, there was much less work than he had originally assumed. Chihiro was awkward, but everyone was in all honesty, some people were just better at hiding it than others. She was also a very pretty girl and maybe just needed to spruce up her wardrobe a bit. The largest and most important thing that was on this list was trying to up her social game. With the short amount of time that he was working with, he had to get her out there and meeting people and getting her name into their heads, along with the keywords “prom queen.”

“Yeah, it’s a lot easier than having to try to find you in between classes or something,” he stated with conviction, knowing very well that he would not be informing any of his friends about the actual details of this encounter. They knew about it occurring, but that was all they would be getting from him. “Perfect, thank you very much Chihiro.” He slipped the pink piece of paper that he had been given into one of the pockets in his varsity jacket. “Bye-“ was all he managed to say before she was out of earshot, yet he made no attempt to move from where he was standing, continuing to watch her as she headed off in direction of wherever. The brunet still had to go to practice, which was not something he was looking forwards to. Working out and being accosted by his teammates about this whole situation was not preferable by any means, but he still had responsibilities as the elect captain that needed to be fulfilled and couldn’t be shirked. Plans and a consultation with his sister would surely be on the agenda tonight, but first, lacrosse.

Theo pulled the paper back out from where he had placed it and unfolded it, staring at the pink numbers that were surrounded by cherry blossoms. Shit. He was in deep now. There definitely was plenty of work to be done once practice was over.
