Bunny Diary Chapter 7; Tasteless
May I ask you something?
When did you show your love? Or for whom is it those love? The answer is not always the same, since every perspective are different.
Love is not only coming from those who you think is the one for you, it can be also from your family & your best friends.
Even if you show your love in Valentine’s Day, Don’t Stop There, show your love & smile everyday.
But it different story when you can’t even tell the difference between love & admirable feeling. Between love as a friend or love as opposite gender, is it really love or just misunderstanding with complicate feeling that can’t be describe or even to explain.
How she could explain that to herself, when she never thought about it before. It is embarrassing to ask her sister or even ask her crush for what happening. Pretty obviously that we’re talking about Echa or rather known as Enchi The Bunny.
And talking about her crush, it been over a month since the last time they talk to each other, to be precise it just after watching the Big Christmas Tree together. Even she could see him in front of The School Gate, where the Student Council correcting the uniform from each student. But it’s almost like there is no chance at all to talk to him.
Inside Class 2-C, Lunchtime.
As Echa sighing & laying her head on her desk, one of her friend coming at her,
“Hai,,hai,,” – waving to Echa that look trouble.
“Oh Hi, Terra.” – she respond with low voice.
Then she ask,
“What is with that respond? And what is it this time?” – with smile she sit on empty seat in front of Echa.
As Echa seem don’t understand with her tone,
“What do you mean Terra?” – confused
“Oh come on, I’m talking about that boy, your crush.”
Hearing that Echa got shock & panic,
“Wach, Terrrraaaa,,, SSSShhhhh,, Not so loud! It embarrassing you know.” – she said with blushing a steam are coming out from her head.
“Hhmm? Why? You still use your uniform, what are you embarrassed about?”
(Sometime I really can’t understand how she can joking like that.) – Echa thought.
For you to know, Terra is a good friend of Echa, since she is a Class Representative from Class 2-C, you can say that she is quite reliable. Though she is also in category that being called tomboy, hidden tittle given by the boy within the classroom. She got those kind of category since she always protect the weak & act like a boy, but most of the time she protect only the girls. And back to normal after the problem is solved.
As Terra don’t get any respond from Echa, she throw another question at her,
“So, is there any progress with him?” – with a straight face.
Surprised with the question that she got panic,
“Progress? What progress, Terra?”
“Come on, you know what I’m talking about. You already talking about him over a month, right? And I got tired hearing you always talking about him, that’s why I ask you ‘is there any progress with him?’”
With blushing & whisper voice she answer Terra question,
“N,,No. There is no progress at all.”
“You must be kidding me.” – she said with cold-sweat.
“No I’m not, but for started I’m not sure if this is exactly what you told me. So I feel awkward to even greeting him.”
“So, if you said it’s not exactly what I thinking is, what is it then?”
“I don’t know.”
With bored eyes,
“Picture the following.”
Without waiting her respond, she said,
“You and him alone in a classroom.”
“Arg..” – Echa blushing,
“You and him alone at the movies.”
As Echa face getting more red & she try to look at another way,
“You and him alone on an uninhabited island.”
Echa start to panic,
“Please, stop it Terra. If you continue any further I’m afraid my heart will explode.” – she blushing.
“That’s what I have been trying to say to you, that kind of reaction is called ‘Love’. You have been fall in Love with him.” – trying to explain.
“Just greet him like you usually do, you meet him every morning, right? And he also come to your club to help your club, right?”
*Little bit down*,
“Hhhmmm, Yes I meet him every morning but, my heart beating so fast that my mouth can’t say a single word. And about that, President Sheila said he got busier with Student Council stuff & he also have some project in his hand. So, basically he have been absent since then.”
“Okey, but you still meet him every morning, right? Just come at him, and greet him like you greet your lover.” – said Terra little bit annoy, losing her patience.
“I told you already, it’s not that easy to just greeting him suddenly, that way will created another misunderstand, that is for sure.” – said Echa Panic.
As Echa trying to stop Terra from giving her funny idea that’s bad for her heart, Terra remember something,
“Echa, today is February 5th, right?”
“Then, how about giving him a Chocolate on Valentine’s Day?”
As Echa shock with her idea, she shouting at her,
Hearing her shouting, she closed her ears with both of her hand,
“Ow,,ow,,ow,, You don’t need to shouting like that Echa. In that case, we can ask Sheena whether he like chocolate or not. Since she is also member of Student Council.” – after she said that, she immediately walk to Sheena.
“Wait, Terra,,,,” – Surprise hearing her idea, she try to stop her.
But before she could stop Terra, Terra already call for Sheena that preparing the paper before she going to the Student Council Room,
“Sheena, Sheena, did you listening to our conversation?” – ask Terra casually.
“Yeah, you guys talking pretty loud. It difficult for me to ignored your voice.” – said her with little bit annoyed while ignored us.
Sheena is the Secretary of Student Council. With her long sides hair & her dark green eyes, she look so elegant & beautiful. But behind those beauty, it come a cold presence that no one dare to approach her when she is in that state. Even though she is not a class representative like Terra, she have more authority in the class. The reason is because many of them admired her & in the same time, they scared, whenever she have a bad mood. This is also why Terra hated her & the real reason why Echa try to stop Terra.
“Come on, don’t be so cold like that. Hey, do you mind if I ask you something about your Vice-President?”
As Echa still try to stop Terra, she standing behind her back, trying to pulling her,
“Terra, stop it. It’s embarrassing.” – whisper Echa with blushing.
“Ssshhh,, be quiet will you.” – Terra said to Echa without feeling guilt.
*Little bit annoy*,
(Aarrggg,, Don’t act like a class representative in this situation, though it is what you are but my heart is on the stage here.) – Echa thought while blushing.
As Sheena looking at them with curious eyes, she ask,
“About whether he like chocolate or not?” – answer Terra casually.
But suddenly the way Sheena look at them turn into a cold & scary look,
“Forget what I said, don’t make any chocolate for him or even try to give him directly. Now if you excuse me.” – as she said that, she turn around & walk away.
Confused with her answer Echa & Terra looking at each other,
And out of curiosity Echa ask her,
“Wait, Sheena. What do you mean by that?”
But Sheena not listening to any of her words and just walk away like that. With Terra that annoyed with her attitude she said,
“Hemd, yeah just go away! who need your help anyway!!” – she shout,
“Echa you don’t need to bother about her, I forgot that there is a rumor about both of them are dating. Maybe she want to give him something by herself, that’s why she is so pissed, I guess she being dumped by him. That sound more reasonable for her temper.” – Explain Terra with annoyed eyes.
“Both of them? What are you talking about Terra?”
“Oh that, Panda & Sheena of course, what else?” – answer her casually.
“Eh? Y-You mean she is his ex-girlfriend?”
“Yeah, that’s why she warn us that way. Aaarrggg, it annoying to talk about her, I never get along with her anyway. Now I get hungry, let’s go to Cafeteria, Echa.” – she said while get more annoyed.
“(But you are the one who try to talk to her.) O-Okey.” – after she said that, she look at the way Sheena walk to & think,
(Why I have a feeling that was more than a warning.)
With Terra that already going ahead, she turn to Echa & ask,
“Echa you coming? If you still thinking about the Valentine’s Day, don’t worry I will help you, I hear home-made chocolate are more romantic than obligatory chocolate. Though I’m not confidence with my cooking skill either.” – giggle.
“That make me worried, but thanks Terra.” – as she said that she turn around & walk following Terra.
“Hahaha, no problem. that’s what it called friendship, right.” – She said with smile to Echa.
As both Echa & Terra going to the Cafeteria, back to Sheena that walk to the Student Council Room,
(If you insisted to give him chocolate, don’t say that I did not warn you.) – she thought with a bit down expression.
Meanwhile, inside the Student Council Room.
Angela the President of Student Council is sleeping. As she laying her head on the desk, with her long layered hair as black raven silk that covering her, she let Panda do all the paperwork,
“Hhmm,,Pao, did you finished yet?” – she ask as she awake with her head still laying down on the desk.
*Tap, Tap.* – Panda answered her by ‘Tapping’ his pen twice to the table that mean yes.
“Why you taking so long to finish that many paperwork.” – ask her with bored eyes.
“……” – he continue his work.
“Pao, I’m bored. Tell me a joke, that’s an order.” – said her with bored eyes.
As Panda Notepad are in front of him, he write something,
[Sorry. Still busy. Order are invalid. Try again next month.] – he give the notepad to her.
“Haha, nice try you Little Panda. I’m not a computer.” – say her with dry laugh.
As Panda ignored her childish side, he stay quiet & do his work,
“Seem I can’t disturb you for one bit, huh? You are too serious on this.” – she said with lazing around.
As Panda turn away looking at Angela,
<Most of this paperwork is your job not mine.> – said Panda with sign language.
“Your face, & your sign are not telling the same thing. Anyway I’m bored, cheer me!” – she said while leaf up her head from the desk,
“Oh! What do we have here?” – she said while she notice something out from Panda bag & taking it.
“……” – as Panda ignored her, he continue his work.
“Oh, PSP. I thought bringing game console in the school is forbidden? Did you break your own rule, Little Vice-President,,” – *Giggle*
“Hey, while you still busy with those paper can I play this?” – ask her while she taking his PSP out of his bag.
*Tap.* – Panda answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen once that mean yes,
(As long as you can be a little quiet.) – he thought.
“Hhmmm, what is this? Elysium Legends? Is this a failure project?” – she ask while she play.
*Tap, Tap.* – answer Panda by ‘Tapping’ his pen, & continue his work.
“Then, you must have a reason to bring this to the school, even though it against the rule.” – she said trying to guess.
*Tap.* – he answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen.
“So, what is this game? Fighting? Adventure? Sci-fi? Well I hope this is RPG game.”
<It’s RPG game.> – Panda said with sign language using his right hand.
“Oh, really?” – she said with smile,
“But wait, why you only created 9 avatar only in this game?” – she complain.
<Prototype.> – Panda said with sign language.
“Arrgg,, Okey, I will test them then. You don’t mind, do you?” – she ask.
*Tap.* – Panda answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen.
As Panda continue his paperwork & Angela who continue playing game, they keep the conversation in strange way. While Angela keep talking about the game, Panda only answered her by ‘Tapping’ his pen, between ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Since Angela is Panda childhood & for her their conversation is more or less like a game that fun being played only for her.
Few minute later, someone coming to Student Council Room,
“I’m sorry, I’m late.” – a girl with many book & paperwork coming into the room.
“Katherine, you are late.” – Angela said while looking at her.
“I did already said sorry, right?” – she said while putting all book & paperwork on the table,
“I’m beat.” – Katherine said with taking sit & look little bit tired.
“If you are already beaten up while you just coming here, do you want me to beaten you up?” – ask Angela with bored eyes & scary smile.
“Arg, No. Thanks.” – Katherine answered with scared,
“Hhmmm,,” – she turn around look at Panda direction.
<Welcome.> – Panda said with sign language & smile.
“Ach, yeah. Thanks.” – Katherine answered with little blush.
“So, why you are late? And why that paperwork with you? That supposed to be Sheena part, right?” – Angela ask while playing game.
“I’m sorry, but my brother currently sick, & since my mother is a nurse, I thought it would be easy. But actually not, & because his condition getting worse he is now being nurse in the hospital.” – Katherine said trying to explain.
“Yeah, I know. Your homeroom teacher said that today morning.” – respond Angela casually.
“Arg, then why you ask?” – little bit annoyed.
“To know whether you are lying or not.” – she answered with smile,
“And how about the second question? Why Sheena paperwork with you?”
“Oh this, I got this from Sheena herself. I met her on the way here but she got order from the teacher to go to the first year building, & she ended up giving her paperwork to me.” – explain Katherine.
“Hhmmm, is that so.” – said Angela while playing game & sound like she don’t care.
“Hahaha, yeah. But, by the way Angela, where is your paperwork?” – she ask while she just realized that Angela only playing game.
“Little Pao doing it for me.” – she answered casually with focus on games.
“Arg, don’t you think you supposed to be doing your own paperwork, Angela?”
“Hhhmm, Maybe. But I’m too lazy to do that & too bored to doing any paperwork. So, I leave everything to my Vice-President.” – *Giggle*,
“Anyway, he look like he doesn’t mind about it, right Little Panda?”
*Tap, tap.* – Panda responded with ‘Tapping’ his pen.
As Katherine notice what Panda doing she said,
“Eee, isn’t that mean he do mind about that?” – trying to remember what Panda mean.
“Well, leave him. He will finish all the paperwork in another 20 minute anyway. And it all his fault anyway.” – she said.
“What do you mean?” – Katherine ask.
“He is smart & a good guy, but the moment I turn away, he helping a club activity without my permission. Knowing his project still much to do & not to mention his position in Student Council. So I think something like this is a piece of cake for him.” – Angela answered with little bit annoyed & wreak her emotion to the game.
“Oh I know what mean, are you jealous that you can’t keep him for yourself, Princess?” – ask Katherine trying to tease Angela a bit.
“I do. Have problem with that?” – Answered Angela glaring at Katherine.
“Hehehe, I’m sorry for trying to teasing you.” – she said little bit scared,
(Woah the way she glaring at me is scary.) – she thought.
As Katherine having conversation while doing her paperwork perfectly with Angela who is still playing game, Panda trying hard to focus & ignored those two.
20 minute later,
*Tap, Tap.* – Panda trying to call Katherine by ‘Tapping’ his pen.
“Hhmmm, yes?” – she noticed.
<I’m finish with my paperwork, give me half of yours, I will help.> – Panda said with sign language .
*Glared*, but before Katherine finish her words, Angela cut her word & glaring at Katherine again,
“You don’t have to, I will help. You need to finish your project, right?” – said Angela little bit serious,
“Here your PSP, I’m lost many time in that dungeon, it really difficult game you created there. But, I’m having fun. That’s the important part, right?” – she said looking at Panda.
“Yeah, pretty sure.”
<Then I will take my leave.> – he said with sign language while putting his PSP in the bag.
“Hey, before you leave, can I ask you something?” – she ask with different tone.
<What is it?> – Panda answer with a calm expression.
“Where are you going last Christmas?” – looking at him with curiosity.
As Panda looking at Angela, he throw another question,
<Just how many time you will ask me about that & answering you with the same answer every single time until you satisfied.>
“Come on, don’t be stingy.” – she sullen.
<It already 341 time you asked about it. Well whatever, I’m going with Enchi to watch Big Christmas Tree.>
As she change the way she looked at Panda,
“Did you guys dating?”
<No. She just want to return the favor & I just want to repay her phone, since her phone are broken because of me.> – answered Panda casually with sign language.
With ominous aura surrounded her, she say,
“I hope you present on Valentine’s Day, Little Panda.”
<It’s not that I’ll be absent on that day.> – he responded.
“This will be interesting.” – She said with malicious smile.
Meanwhile Katherine that being ignored as a third person between them, doesn’t have any chance to talk at all. Where actually she enjoy the conversation between both of them & having little bit fun looking at how Angela jealous. As for Panda, with his personality, he is too good to not knowing that she have the plan for him, to be played with.
Everyone in Class 2-A know, that Angela also had a feeling for him. Since she always so strict & devilish to whoever break the rule but so childish & friendly with Panda. Even for Sheena, her childhood friend, can’t do a thing but smile at how she behaves. Yet she always sad, by the fact that Angela never holding back to show her ugly side to someone she doesn’t like. Whoever it is, stepping back from them are merely a mercy for Angela, The President of Student Council.
As the days are passing by, Valentine’s Day has arrived.
Lunch Time, In front of Class 2-A, are become crowded place, the reason for this ruckus is no other than there are so many girls that trying to get in to Class 2-A. But they are being held by 4 boys which is not letting them to go in. Their purpose actually not far from the event on that day, the only problem is the person who they try to give the chocolate, is only one person. It’s for Panda.
Eventually one of the boy that holding the door shouting,
“Aaarrggg, girls please, calm yourself,,” – with trying to holding them to get in, he shouting,
“Meg, are you done yet?”
Since it crowded she respond with shouting too,
“Not yet! And can you please make them quite? I can’t concentrate here.” – as she continued where she leave before,
“Okey, now how I can solve this question again, Panda?” – ask her with pointed her finger to the question in the math book.
With Casually he using sign language,
<Page 93, inside the yellow box there’s a formula, you can use them as the second formula and combined with X to find Y. Then you need to,,>
As Panda try to explain math to Meg, she interrupt him,
“Wait, wait, wait, Panda. If you excuse me.” – she turn slowly & shouting,
“can you guys please shut up!” – she get annoyed by the crowd that trying to get in.
Since, one of the boy that holding the door is Ursiblue, he try to confront them with sweat on his head,
“Ladies, you hear that, right? Our class have study session now, so can you little bit quite.”
“No, Let me pass, I want to give my chocolate to Panda! Let me Pass!” – said one after another with the same line.
Realize that no one is listening to him, he look at Meg with a depress expression,
“No one care.”
She got annoyed,
“Yeah, maybe that’s because you are too soft!!!”
Meanwhile, two girl are standing not so far from Class 2-A. As Terra shock seeing the crowd in front of Class 2-A,
“The Heck! Are you sure about this Echa? Where you are going to is a war zone, I mean look at those girls, it definitely a war zone.”
As Echa carry a small box covering with pink fabrics & a nice red ribbon she said,
“Y,,yes, I will give this chocolate to him.”
Little bit worry,
“On the first place, why you don’t give that chocolate to him in the drama club? You don’t need to pass those war zone thing, you know.”
“Maybe you are right, but he leave a note on his locker yesterday that saying, [Sorry for the disturbing, I’ll leave everything to you.] At first nobody know what he mean, only President Sheila do. But then today morning there are so many chocolate box & bouquet of flower in front of Drama Club, it was mean for him. Now everybody know what he mean.” – Echa trying to explain.
“Heh? What he is? Is he a super stars or what?”
“Yes, he is, or rather it’s not only him, anyone who play the main role or get a character to play, they all have a fans now even from outside of the school.” – answer Echa casually.
“Wow. Wait, don’t tell me you also got many chocolate from your fans too?”
“Yes, but I share the chocolate with the rest of the member, since I can’t finish it alone, do you want some?” – ask Echa casually.
“Ack, No Thanks. Now let’s go there, I’ll open the way for you.”
“Thanks, Terra.” – she said with smile.
But before Echa & Terra getting close to the crowd, a loud voice can be heard from the inside of Class 2-A,
“Hey look! I saw Panda running to the backyards!!!”
Hearing that, all girls respond,
“Heh, really?” – then one girl trying to get out from the crowd & start to run with shouting,
“I will be the first who give Panda the chocolate.” – following by,
“Don’t even think about that!” – then the other said,
“I won’t let you to do that!” – said another girl, then they start chasing the girl who running first one after another until the door is free to pass.
After all girls are gone, the boys who holding the door with a heavy breathing & their annoyed eyes directed to Meg, as she respond,
“Why you don’t do that from the first place?”
“Don’t blame me, you guys look almost dead holding them anyway. Thanks would be good, and ,,,oh!” – just before she could finish her word, she saw Echa coming in into their class.
As she nervous because of everybody inside the class looking at her,
“Em, Excuse me.” – say Echa with a low tone.
“I’m sorry but we are having,,” – before Meg finish her word, Panda pat her back then with a sign language,
With worried eyes,
“Are you sure about this?” – ask Meg.
<Yeah. Meg, look at her finger. She have been trying hard. It would be rude to decline a home-made, right?> – said Panda to Meg using different sign language that he use in Drama Club.
“Just don’t push yourself.” – said Meg warn him.
With Echa getting close to Panda,
“I’m sorry, did I disturb your study session?”
“Nah, don’t worry about that,, Hhhmmm,, Enchi, right?” – said Meg trying to remember Echa name.
“Agh, my name is Echa, but I’m fine either way.” – said Echa little bit embarrassed.
“Okey. So, why are you here again?” – ask Meg casually.
“I,,I,,I’m here to give the chocolate. T-To Panda.” – said Echa embarrassed.
“Ah no, I’m with my friend. But she said she want to make sure that the other girls keep distracted.”
“Yeah, I guess that would be the best move. Good job Enchi friend.” – said Meg with cold sweat.
As Panda take a look at Echa finger that full of band aid,
<Enchi, What happen to your finger?> – ask Panda casually.
“Th,,this? Ah don’t worry, this is nothing. I just careless & accidently touch a hot pan 2 days ago.” – explain Echa with little bit panic & think,
(Though, I actually did that because I overthinking about the chocolate, but it’s impossible for me to say that, am I.) – as she trying to give the chocolate to him, but she blushing beforehand,
“P-Please, accept my chocolate.” – said Echa while giving him the chocolate.
<Thanks.> – with smile Panda accept her chocolate.
As Panda notice that Echa have been staring at him,
<What is it?>
“Please, try it.” – she shy,
“I’m not sure that will be good, but I try my best to make it.” – she said.
<Okey, I will try one.> – after he said that with his sign language, he take one piece of chocolate from the box & put it in his mouth,
<It was delicious.> – he said with his sign language & smile.
As Ursiblue suddenly show up from Panda back,
“Really? Then I guess I will take one.” – as he stealing one chocolate from Panda, he suddenly make a funny face afterward,
“Uurrgghh, it salty. Panda, are you sure this chocolate is delicious or you just can’t,,”
“Blue!!!” – Just before Ursiblue finish his word, everybody shouting on him & startled Echa.
“Oops..” – as he realized what he have been trying to say,
“Pao, I didn’t mean to,,”
<It’s okey, Blue.>
As Echa confused & doesn’t understand why they are shouting on Ursiblue in the same time or even why he try to apologize to Panda, then she ask,
“What’s going? Wha,,”
But before she could throw another question to everyone, she look at Panda face, Panda expression, she remember that look. That expression is what she saw when they are going to the Aquarium Park.
As Echa worried over Panda, she try to ask him,
“Panda, are you alrig,,”
Before she could finish her word again,
“Pao, what are you doing here! There are so many worksheets in Student Council Room, I need your help.” – Sheena is calling Panda from outside the class.
With his expression still the same, he answer with sign language,
<I’m coming.> – as he passing everyone like it was nothing happen, class become awkward for a moment.
“Uummm,, What is going on?” – ask Echa that still confused & trying to break the awkward.
“Okey everyone, who is hungry? It lunchtime, don’t waste your time,, let’s go to cafeteria!” – shout Ursiblue trying to distract & dodge the question.
“Yeah good idea.” – said one of them,
“I’m coming with you buddy.” – respond the other student.
“Hei wait, how about my math problem?” – ask Meg panic.
“Don’t worry I already have a note from what Panda explain.” – said the girl beside Meg.
“Thanks, then let’s go.” – said Meg, and following her, everybody else leave the classroom.
As everything happen so fast, without Echa realizing she have been left alone in the classroom. With nothing but a question, ‘What is going on here?’
Back to Panda that walk alongside with Sheena,
“Are you alright?” – ask Sheena worried.
<Yeah.> – answer Panda while he covering his mouth with handkerchief.
As Sheena take a look at Panda handkerchief, she see a blood,
“You should not push yourself, Pao. Do you want spew that chocolate?”
“You are really persistent, huh? As your cousin I’m worried, you know. Here, take this.” – said Sheena give a mineral water to Panda.
“It was Angela who ask me to buy the drink for you & give it to you. I don’t know what is her reason, until I saw what happen there.” – explain Sheena.
<Why I’m not surprised hear that.> – said Panda with his expression still down.
<It’s not your fault.>
“Thanks for trying to cheering me, but it doesn’t change the fact that I let thing happen. Sometime I don’t understand her as her friend, why she played you around yet she care to you.” – Sheena confused.
<That’s one thing that I agreed with you.>
Along their way, they continue their conversation as they continue their step. Many student misunderstanding & think that Sheena is Panda ex-girlfriend which is still chasing after him, though actually she just like Wolfrik, care to Panda like a real relative. She is Wolfrik cousin, and she seeing Panda like a big brother, she is the second daughter of famous restaurant, the place where Wolfrik & Panda have part-time job.
Maybe it is true that she is Angela childhood or even the longest friend that can stand with her behavior. She do can’t understand her as a friend but, she really do understand what exactly she is. Rather than hated & sarcastic the person who have the same feeling like her to Panda, she chose to played them so that they fall into despair & tear them apart slowly. And that’s is how ugly her ugly side.
