LAST CHAPTER
Chapter 10: I’ll be there for you
POV: Miura Haruma

I know, it was a pretty assholic thing to asked someone, to be your secret friend or girlfriend. I just wanted to get her back. But it turns out to be the worst, I hurt her again, it was a major foul this time. That night, all I did was to stare at her back walking away, with her hands swaying upwards like she’s wiping her tears.

---

Aya dragged me to the horror house which the other class prepared, Aya is screaming with all her might though nothing is scary. I suddenly thought about Ro-chan. If she’s the girl, I’m with, I know she would give sarcastic comments like, ‘OMG! That was pretty boring; I didn’t even feel any goosebumps.’

I smiled to myself. NOW, Aya was pulling to the other booth where they sell fancy things. She was amaze to see a plastic-made set of jewelry.

“Do you like stuffs like that?” I ask, as she was trying to fit some ring on her fingers.

“Of course! Aren’t they cute?”

“Yeah, they are cute. But I didn’t know, you were the type of girl who would wear those kinds.”

“you know what Haru-chan? I really find it strange about you.”

“What?”

“You really care much about what others might think about your decision…… I mean, do you think it’s a sin to buy some cheap stuff instead of branded ones? Well for me, I don’t care how much it cost as long as I like it, as long as I’m happy with it. You on the other hand, I don’t know. It’s like you want everybody’s approval first before you’ll do this or that. You won’t be happy if you continue to act like this.”

I realize Aya’s words. She’s right. I need to be happy and be true to myself and to Rosa. I dashed outside the classroom, and went to search for her. But when I saw Ro-chan, I saw her with a guy and their laughing freely.

Was I too late?

---

Broken hearted, I went downstairs to our booth, in the school grounds. I was seating at the chair beside the stage when I saw a glimpse of Rosa. I know what to do. I stood up and get the electric guitar on its stand. And walk in middle of the stage.

“And the next student who will perform is---“I immediately cut my classmate who is the MC.

“Excuse me, everybody. Thank you. Thank you. I just want to sing this song for the girl I really love. And it’s titled; I’ll be there for you by Bon Jovi. I don’t know, if she would like this song, still I dedicate this song for you.”

‘I'll be there for you, these five words I swear to you
When you breathe I wanna be the air for you
I'll be there for you’

I hear the crowds cheering, I saw Aya’s friend pushing her in the middle”she was blushing. Then I shifted my stare back to Rosa, who was busy walking around with her friends and with a new stupid guy. She was smiling like she didn’t see and hear me.

“And that song is for…” I paused. “KATO ROSA, who was standing at the middle of this ground wearing a violet knitted cap.”

Everybody look at her, awed. She stopped smiling and looked at me oddly, as she heard her name from this loud microphone.

I jump out from the stage, the audience gave way. I was eager to hold her hands, so I was like walking real fast when someone take a grip on my arms”it was Aya.

“WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!” she screamed.

“I’m sorry but---“I said, then she lets go of my arms. I run to Ro-chan as fast as I can. She looked at me unearthly.

“Look, Rosa, I know I’m an asshole and I admit that. I know I have hurt you many times, that I can’t even count it on my own fingers. I’m really really sorry. And I’m sorry for not being brave enough to tell you how I feel so…”

I held the microphone near my lips and say,“…Kato Rosa, I love you. I really do. Would you be my girlfriend?”

Her eyes were sparkling again, almost teary eyed. “I’m sorry. I can’t.” Ouch, that hurts. I wanted to cry. “Your friends are here. You’re embarrassed to go out with me right? I can’t give my heart away for some stupid jock, who is embarrassed to be seen with me in public.”

“I don’t care what others might think of me.” I said bravely and held the microphone again. “Minna-san! (everybody) I love KATO ROSA of 3-B, and I want her to be my girlfriend.” I remove the microphone from my mouth and say, “Ro-chan, would you be my girlfriend?”

“Yes!!” She exclaimed and hugged me. I kissed her forehead and say, “I promise you, I won’t hurt you again.”

She sighed and says, “Or at the very least, you could just try.”
