Bunny Diary Chapter 02; Silence Request (Girl)
Did you know, whenever you said something bad to others & feel bad about it, what you feel is nothing but regret. The words you’ve said cannot be taken back, so you must take action to paint over what you have already said.
And sometime apologize doesn’t mean that you were wrong, or the other person was right. Mistake & fault once is done can’t be undone but, prolonging an awkward situation out of Stubbornness is just silly.
The day after the accident, Wednesday, inside Drama Club,
“………” – gloomy.
A while later,
“Oh it rare to see you come to the Club early in the morning, Bunny.” – greeting President Sheila.
“Hhmmm, oh good morning, President.” – Echa answered with feeling down.
“So, what happen here, did someone steal the carrot from your garden early in the morning?” – said Sheila trying to give a little joke.
“No, Nothing happen.” – Echa respond getting more down.
“You know what, whenever people said ‘Nothing happen’ basically there is something happen. So, would you like to tell me what’s going?” – Sheila ask with worried.
“I said something.”
“Okey, I’m listening. Is it something bad or good?” – Sheila ask again, while sit down beside Echa.
“Something bad.” – she said getting more gloom.
“For example?” – Sheila ask casually.
“I called him Deaf. That time I was mad at him & accidently called him that. I don’t know that he actually Mute.” – Echa said while covering her face with both of her hand.
“Hhhmmm,, wait, let me guess. Are you talking about Panda? And both of you accidently bump each other. While you help him, you try to talk to him but he doesn’t answer you & that is make you mad, is that what happened?” – said Sheila trying to guess casually.
Looking at Sheila surprisingly,
“H-how you know that, President?”
“Well, there are so many story in novel with similar thing happen, not to mention I forgot to tell you that he is Mute, sorry.” – Sheila said casually.
“Yeah, you right.” – Echa said with eyes that saying ‘it all your fault’.
“Hey, don’t look at me with that eyes, I’m sorry okey, I’m sorry. I was thinking you did remember about him even little bit.”
Suddenly down again,
“Yes, you are right. If I did remember him a little bit, this will never happen.”
“Are you feel bad about it?” – Sheila ask with little bit worry looking at Enchi down.
“Yes, I am.” – said Echa sad.
“So, why you still here?” – ask Sheila with smile.
“What do you mean, President?” – ask Echa little bit confused.
“What I mean is, if you feel bad about it, what you should do then?” – ask Sheila with tempting.
“Meeting him?” – Echa guess as she turn at Sheila.
“That’s right. And?” – Sheila ask with smile.
“And apologize to him for what I have said to him.” – Echa guessing as her spirit up little bit.
“So I’ll repeat my question, why you still here?” – ask Sheila tempting again.
“I need to go meet him.” – Echa said with her spirit up.
As Echa standing up,
“I need to waiting for him.”
“That’s the spirit.” – said Sheila with smile.
As Echa looking at Sheila,
“I need to apologize to him.”
“Okey, that is good too, but don’t push too hard, okey. The outcome can be backfire on yourself.” – said Sheila little bit worry.
“Ach, you right.”
“Now go get me My Super Stars!” – Sheila said as pointed her finger outside.
As Echa running with her spirit up high,
“Yes Ma’am.” – she leave her.
“She called me ‘Ma’am’, hah? Hope she is okey, I’m worried.” – said Sheila more worried.
As Echa leaving Sheila, she immediately going to Panda Classroom, hoping that he is there & able to apologize for what she have been said to him. But as she waiting for him at lunch time & even after school, he is nowhere to be seen. Just like before, even she ask his classmate no one know where he is. Or at least that is what they said to her.
The next day, Thursday, inside Drama Club,
As Sheila looking at Enchi being depressed again in the same place,
“Hay, you okey, Enchin?” – ask Sheila with worried.
With gloomy aura getting stronger around her, Echa said,
“He hated me. He totally hated me. I’m so Screw. He,,”
As Sheila cut her word cause her worried,
“Wait, wait, wait. What happen? Are you alright, Enchi?” – she said trying to make Echi calm.
“Yeah, I’m fine President. It just, yesterday, he is not there.” – Echa said getting more gloom.
“Oh, is that so. But listen to me Enchi, if he is not there doesn’t mean that he hate you. Maybe he busy with his Council stuff at other school or have family business.” – Sheila said trying to cheer her.
As Echa surprised,
“Heh??? He was one of Student Council member?” – she turn at Sheila
“Hhmmm, you don’t know that?” – Sheila surprised too.
“Of course I don’t know about it, I was thinking that the Vice-President of Student Council is Mute just a rumor only.”
“Well, it seem the rumor become real, Enchin.”
“I guess you are right, President.” – said Echa still little bit surprised hearing that.
“If I may add, he always stand in Rank Two in every exam, but always Rank One in final exam. Everyone know that he is doing it on purpose, knowing his weakness. That is why that little Angel always beating him up, & push him to join the Student Council with her.” – said Sheila as she do some paperwork.
“Th, Thanks for clearing thing, President. But by ‘Angel’ you mean ‘Angela’ from Class-2A, right?” – Echa said getting more surprised.
Listening while getting busy,
“He’emd, it is her. Don’t give up my dear, if you truly want to apologize do it now or never.”
As Echa smile hearing that, she said,
“Thanks, President.” – while she going to Panda Classroom again.
With her smile giving her hope, she trying to waiting for him again. From the morning, break time, lunchtime, & afterschool.
Unfortunately the result is still the same, but this time is different.
This time she coming back to Drama Club with smile like she usually do, Friday.
As she greeting everybody in the Drama Club,
“Good Morning, President. Good Morning, everyone.” – with smile.
“Oh good morning, Enchi. What is with happy smile friday, did you get a date?” – Sheila give a little joke while busy with her things.
“Nope.” – Echa said with big smile on her face.
“Do you apologized yet?” – Sheila ask casually.
“Nope.” – answered Echa with the same smile.
As Sheila stop what she is doing right now,
“Okey, now I’m little bit worried. What you planning?” – she ask while she turn at Echa.
As Echa confused,
“Ech? What do you mean, President?”
“Enchi, I know you, when you happy like this in the ‘awkward’ situation, it mean you have something on your mind to break those ‘awkward’ situation, am I right.” – Sheila guessing.
*Giggle, 😛 (Giving tongue)*,
“Te-he, please you make me shy, President.” – Echa said little bit blush.
“Honey, I’m pretty busy right now. In the next 3 days we have Show in 3 different place, so better now or later.” – Sheila said while looking at the schedule she have.
As Echa little bit panic hearing that, she try to put in the point,
“I’m sorry, President. Anu,, Hhmmm, Please, teach me Sign Language.”
“Huh? Say what? What do you mean , Enchin? Why so sudden?” – Sheila ask little bit confused too.
“Hhmmm, Well, you know, since up till now I try to apologize but he never show up, I think it have something to do with his family. So that’s why I have idea, why I’m not learn Sign Language & Surprise him, & since you know him, I’m pretty sure that President can teach me.” – Echa trying to explain.
As Sheila looking at her phone with a bad mood,
“You probably right, Enchi. Even that Wolf-Boy doesn’t contact me at all, & about your idea, it is a great idea, but why don’t you go to School Library or Internet to do so?”
(Actually, I’m more concern about Wolf-Boy, that dare to make President in a state of bad mood. Hope everyone is safe.) – thought Echa hearing that & got scared looking at Sheila in a Bad Mood,
“S-school Library is being renovated, to go to bookstore in Saturday or Sunday is impossible since my sister had a plan for me, & about internet, I never use one.” – she explain.
“Woah, I will pretend I do understand all, but I will just show you once & you need to remember it, okey? Our time is running my dear Enchi.” – said Sheila looking at her watch that it almost time for the first period start.
“Yes I will, President.” – Echa said with energetic.
“Okey, I’ll show you how to say ‘I’m sorry to call you that way before, will you please forgive me?’ in Sign Language, is that too long for you?”
As Echa put her concentration to remember what Sheila will teach her,
“No, please continue, President.”
As Sheila show Sign Language to Echa,
< I’m sorry. I’m sorry to call you that way before, will you please,,>
Just before Sheila finish, one girl is coming to her,
“President, about the Wedding costumes that you ask me to modified, I need more time since I’m doing it alone.”
“Then, you can take the other girls who have finish their part to help you. We need it for today, can you finish it today?” – said Sheila as she talk to that girl she doesn’t realize what she show to Enchi.
“I’m afraid it will be not much help, because it quite complicated design you have there.” – the other girl complained.
*School Bell Ringing.*
As Sheila realizing what she is doing she turn to Enchi,
“Okey, Enchi, how about I send you MMS later? Huh? Where she is?” – said her while looking for her, & just realizing that Echa already going back to her class,
(Well, I hope I giving her the right Sign to her.) – she thought.
With worried pass her head, Sheila can’t do anything but hoping it was the right Sign Language that she teach to Enchi. As she going to help finishing the Wedding costumes & other preparation for the Show.
But those hope are really not stand for that long, since she actually did give her the wrong sign language.
(Is she showing the right or the wrong sign language.)
Such a thought are never passed through Echa mind, since she believe Sheila just like she believe her sister.
As she try to memorize what Sheila show to her, all her classmate was confused for what she is doing exactly. Well, how they can understand her circumstance when even herself not sure if she doing it exactly like Sheila did or not.
Echa is good at memorizing book & baking a cake, but she have vague memory to remember someone face. Especially people who don’t speak much or rather he not talking at all.
He is famous but he is quiet. He is calm but look scary. His smile has a thousand unspoken words, that sometime cute. His silent is either it make him cool or just make an awkward situation. We are talking about Panda that is.
And without Echa realizing, she give the Vice-President from Student Council & the Second Class Representative a new nickname, as well as the weird rumors that being spread around.
Monday, inside Class 2-C Classroom.
As Echa confident about her sign language,
(Alright. I’m sure I’ll be able to say sorry to him, and I’ll ask him to help me. Okey that sound good. Just, don’t be weird, don’t be weird, and, – – -) – she thought but, she being look weird by the other student.
To be honest, she is not that good at dealing people, especially opposite gender. As she trying to get her sources to apologize to him, she spending the whole morning. Fact about Echa, she always coming to schools earlier than Student Council and everyday she bake a cookies only to share them with all her friends.
In front of Class 2-A, as everyone out for lunchtime, there is a girl waiting for a boy, at the same time & the same place she waiting for a certain person, yes we are talking about Echa that waiting for Panda.
As Echa seen Panda walk out from his classroom,
(Okey, now is the time.) – she thought as she walk to his direction.
As Echa walk toward him, in the same time Panda notice her & stop his step. As she stop her step in front of him, she try to use sign language,
*Using Sign Language*
<I’m sorry. I’m sorry to call you that way before, will you please forgive me?>,
(I hope I doing it, right.) – she thought.
But as she show her sign language, everyone from his class have a pause as if they are surprised about something that obviously she doesn’t realize it.
