(Aika Kinjo POV)
Okay, so the elevator incident still has my heart pounding like crazy. Kazuhiko Hidaka kissed me. For like 2 minutes. Surprisingly, it wasn't that bad. But still, I wanted to kill him. If Akane Takahashi found out, she'd probably murder me first, but whatever. And also, he said "I think I love with you." Why the hell would Kazuhiko Hidaka like me? Up to now, I thought he hated me. He sure is weird.
"Hey Kinjo!" I voice yelled. I turned around and saw Akane.
"What the hell do you want?" I asked.
"So apparently, you and Kazuhiko were trapped in an elevator together. I want to know exactly what you guys did. I mean it, and if you got within 80cm to him-" She began.
"I didn't. We didn't do anything. He asked me stuff about orchestra and that was like it." I argued.
"Good to hear it. As long as you didn't do anything with him, I'm fine with it. Which reminds me, he's my date for the spring dance on Wednesday night, so don't get any thoughts about going to the dance with him, because he's taken." Akane smirked.
"I'm not. I already have a friend that I'm going with." I said carelessly.
"Who? Do I know him?" Akane asked with sudden interest.
"Jin Tanaka. I doubt you don't know him. He's Hidaka's friend." I replied.
"Oh, well Michiyo lied to me then. She said she was going with him, what a bitch. Ugh, anyways I have to pick out clothes to wear for the dance; I have to look my best for Kazuhiko-kun." Akane smiled sweetly.
"Okay then…I'll be leaving." I said as I walked away.
"Don't forget! Kazuhiko Hidaka is mine, all MINE!" She screamed down the hallway.
"Pfft, like a care." I mumbled.
"Hey, Aika! When do you want me to pick you up on Wednesday?" Jin asked.
"Oh hey, um…It doesn't really matter to me, whatever time is okay with you." I suggested.
"Well the dance starts at 7:30, so how about 7?" Jin asked.
"Sure. I guess I'll see you around." I replied as I walked away.
Jin probably has no idea that Kazuhiko kissed me. I kind of feel like I'm betraying Jin…
(Jin Tanaka POV)
Aika Kinjo really does brighten up someone's life. She does it in an odd way though. Different from Reika. Reika needs to keep her emotions in check, and needs to calm down at times. I know she seemed really mad when I was talking to Aika, a week ago. I think Reika's just a little jealous. I've known her for all my life, and I guess she doesn't like to see me with someone else.
"Jin. Can I talk to you for a second?" A voice asked.
"Akane? What do you want?" I asked in an annoyed tone.
"Well, um I need your help with this violin part, can you help me? It's a violin sonata. It's driving me insane, and it happens to be a summative." She whined.
"I'll see what I can do, you could try asking Kazuhiko or Aika, they might-" I began.
"No, I want you to help me." She said as she grabbed my tie.
"Akane, let go. Your going to ruin the tie, it was just ironed yesterday." I said firmly.
"Aweh, Jin. Can't you have a little fun?" Akane glanced at me.
"Um, Akane-" I began again.
"No, hush. We don't need to talk. I just want you, here with me." She walked over and put her hand on my cheek.
"Akane, you needed help with the Sonata, and I'm going to help you, I'm not doing anything else." I stated. I could feel my anger rising up.
"Jin, God you're so boring. Don't you want to bend the rules a bit? You don't want me? Akane Takahashi? I'm sure any other guy in the school would kill to be in your position right now. If you don't do what I say, then your little friend Reika gets kicked out of the school. Her grades are already slipping, and the only thing that is allowing her to stay right now is you. If your parents didn't pay money to keep her in, daddy would have kicked her out so long ago." Akane smirked.
"What Reika and I do is none of your business. You have no right to kick her out." I yelled.
"You shut up! Don't tell me what to do. I want you, with me." Akane smiled mischievously.
"I'm going to help you with the violin sonata and that's it. Either that, or I'm leaving." I stated firmly, I turned around to leave. Akane grabbed my arm and pulled me into a kiss.
I struggled to keep her away, but she had grabbed my arms way to tight. Akane pushed me away finally, and I noticed that she undid the two buttons on her blouse. I turned towards the door and Aika, Kazuhiko and Reika were all standing there.
"Aika, Reika, Kazuhiko! Its not-" I began.
"You disgusting perv, how dare you try to seduce me!" Akane yelled at me.
"I didn't! You're the one who tried to seduce me! Get away from me, you goddamn whore!" I yelled back.
"I saw exactly what happened, Jin. I seriously thought you where a nice guy, I guess not." Aika said as her cheeks burned.
"Jin… How could you? I thought I was your friend. I know your not someone who would do this, but. I saw it. With my eyes." Reika almost yelled while she clenched her fists.
"Jin, I guess maybe Akane was right, you are a untrustworthy person." Kazuhiko spat.
"You guys, she lured me in here to help her with her violin piece. She even has her violin books." I stated.
They all walked out on me, leaving me bewildered.
"Hn, like their ever going to believe you." Akane smirked.
"You're such a fucking bitch." I yelled.
Akane walked over to me and whispered in my ear, "I know. There's no way you can prove anything, not even to daddy. If you don't do what I tell you to do next, I'll tell daddy that you tried to molest me, then, you'll be expelled." Akane smiled.
"I…" I stuttered.
"Exactly Jin, now you have no one, not even your little friends to believe you. From now on, you're my boy friend. You're going to follow me around everywhere, and carry my books, and be my date for the dance." She threatened.
"I already said I'd take Aika." I almost yelled.
"nah uh uh! Or I tell daddy, and I have 3 of your friends to back me up too." She said while whipping out her phone.
"Fuck you, Takahashi. Like mother like daughter. You're mom was a bitch, just like you. She had both the Kinjo's killed on the same day. She made sure that Rika Kinjo died by poisoning the tea she was about to drink after she gave birth to Aika. She also made sure that the truck hit Izumi Kinjo's car. You and your mother are evil, jealous bitches. My mom told me everything. Your mom secretly liked Izumi Kinjo, but was already arranged to marry your father, Takahashi-san. She was furious when she was invited to their wedding, and especially when she found out that Rika-san was pregnant. She hated Rika-san ever since she met her, because Izumi stopped dating your mom when Rika came to the school. Your mom never forgave them, and tried many times to break them up; it needs to stop now, with you." I yelled.
Akane was shaking, and holding back tears.
"You think I actually act like this? Do you even know me, Jin Tanaka? Did you know my mom used to beat me and yell at me everyday, telling me I was never good enough to be anything? Did you know that? Did you know that she tried to choke me to death when I was five because I lost a violin competition to Kinjo? Did you know that? My dad spoiled me, and my mom divorced him when I was 8. She left, and threatened that I go along with her. She tried to throw me down the stairs, and I broke my wrist. I thought I would never be able to play violin ever again. Did you know, that my mom tried to break all my fingers because I accidentally broke my violin? You obviously don't know. No one knows. I'm only who I am at school, because of her. She's the one who made me the bitch I am today. I hate her, I hate everyone. Kazuhiko was the first person I met that sort of understood me. I met him when I was 3. I've liked him ever since the first time I saw him, but he never liked me back. He always talked about a girl in our competition when we were young. He said that he didn't know her name, but she was amazing at violin, she was beautiful and graceful in everyway, and that apparently she was very poor. Do you know who she is? Aika Kinjo. You got it. Aika became his every thought at the time, and he didn't even know her name. Until recently, she enrolled at our school. The day she walked into my class, I knew she was the girl that Kazuhiko described and admired from before. I was jealous, very jealous. I admit it. And I'm sorry for being the way that I am. I…I'm a terrible person, just like my dead mother." She sobbed.
I was speechless. This is the same Akane Takahashi I knew from preschool? The one who would always be happy and cheerful, and was always the prettiest and most popular girl at our school? She had a past that I never knew, and now that I know, it changes my perspective. Today, Akane Takahashi cracked. She couldn't stand it anymore.
"Akane, I'm-" I began.
"No Jin, I'm sorry." She said quietly as she sprinted out of the room. I forgave her. Even though she made my friends think that I was a terrible person. Akane needs a friend, someone who would understand her.

"Reika, I guess Jin…" I said quietly.
"No, I'm sorry. I disliked you because I was jealous. Not for no apparent reason." Reika smiled gently.
"Aika, I know Jin would never try to seduce Akane. We've been like brothers since preschool." Kazuhiko said.
"Yea, I was doubting my words from the very beginning. I was angry, and I guess they came out." I replied.
"I know for sure, that Jin would never do anything like that. He's my friend, and I guess, I think of him more than just a friend. I love him. Always have. He just hasn't opened his eyes wide enough to realize." Reika whispered softly.
I was silent. I was walking with Kazuhiko and Reika into school. They where not the people who I socialized with. As soon as we entered the school, we realized something was wrong. The halls where deadly silent and the usual bench where Akane and the rest of the popular's was empty. We walked past a girl with a pale face messy and tangled light brown hair. There was no makeup on her face, and her eyes where dull green colour. It took me a second to realize that it was Akane Takahashi. She looked so different from what she usually looked like it was disgusting. Her eyes where red and puffy, and her side bangs covered her eyes.
"Akane, is that you?" Kazuhiko yelled in wonder.
"What do you think?" her voice shot back. "Do you think I'm some sort of a monster now?" She yelled.
"I can see that your attitude is still the same, even though you look different." Kazuhiko said coldly.
"Seriously, just…Leave me alone for a bit please, it's just a small favour." She pleaded quietly. Akane's eyes where brimmed with tears and they looked pleading. She ran down the hall past me, and the split second when I saw her eyes, they where filled with guilt and pain. I almost felt sorry for her. Kazuhiko sprinted after her, leaving Reika and I startled. We all had one question on our minds, and I was afraid to say it outloud.
"What happened to Akane Takahashi…?"
