Daichi Part Three
Then came the end of school and Daichi found a black note in his locker. He reckoned it was from Junko.
“Stupid cow.” he said as he unfolded the letter.
But when he saw the first words his heart froze, “Fight me.” was painted in white on the black paper.
“This is from Kami.” he scrunched the letter, “That bastard.”
He hoped to ignore the letter but as he tried to escape out the school gates two boys came and grabbed Daichi's arms.
“Just where do you think you're going?” said one boy whose name was Hanjuro.
“I dont want to fight!” he shouted.
“Oh be a man!” said the other boy whose name was Ero and he punched his gut.
“Hey! Kami wants to rough him up! If you do it again I’ll tell him! So control yourself you big ape!” shouted Hanjuro.
Hanjuro and Ero dragged Daichi up to the roof of the school's main building. When they broke through the door to the roof, Daichi felt the sunlight sting his eyes. Everything became blurry and his vision steadily came into focus and the first thing he saw when he came onto the roof was a small girl in their year being held by Rokkan and Kami with his devilish smile.
“I reckoned you were too chicken.” Daichi stayed silent, “Bring him here!” he ordered.
Ero and Hanjuro threw Daichi at his feet. He looked up to see Kami staring at the girl who struggled in Rokkan’s arms.
“This girl has a crush on you Daichi. I mean who could blame her, you do have a massive dick so I suppose that is an attractive quality.”
Daichi tried to contain his anger.
Kami bent down, his face inches from Daichi’s, “Too bad you’ll never be her first!”
He heard Ero and Hanjuro chuckle behind him. He could only imagine the thoughts and ideas that went through their heads, “You pigs!” he shouted.
Kami stood straight, his smirk wiped clean from his face and his foot hurling towards Daichi’s jaw.
The pain was throbbing. His head felt like it was hit against his desk a million times. The strength of the kick was so intense that he wondered if he had lost any of his marbles.
The girl squealed as she watched her first love get beaten by Kami and his goons.
“Stop hurting him! You’ll kill him!” she wriggled under Rokkan’s grip but he stood firm like a statue.
Kami stood back and watched as Ero and Hanjuro continued the beatings. He laughed at Daichi before turning to her. His hand soon met her cheek with a loud slap.
“Shut up you dumb bitch! No one insults me and gets away with it!” he looked down at Daichi, “No one walks out on me while I’m speaking to them either.” He kicked him in the gut, which sent Daichi about two meters back.
He felt like he had broken a rib or two. His face was sore and his arms and legs were already getting purple bruises. He couldn’t keep this up.
The girl was crying, she thought today was the day her innocence would be stolen. Where she would be humiliated and tortured in front of her first love. Her heart beat furiously and her tears started to burn on her cheeks, it was too painful to cry. “I’ll do what ever you want just let him go.” She said quietly, “J-just let him go.” She repeated.
Kami smirked and held her chin, “Don’t flatter yourself Eri. I had no intention of screwing you anyway. Ero and Hanjuro however…” he turned to them and signaled them to come over, “My friends need to get loose so if you’re to do anything then it’s with them.” He dropped her chin.
Ero looked at Hanjuro with a greedy smile, “Finally.”
They slowly made their way towards her. Eri was still held by Rokkan, waiting for the worst to happen.
“Touch her and your tools are gone before you even whip them out of your pants.”
Ero and Hanjuro paused. Kami looked over in shock to see who was at the door. Yuki, Seo and Kiyomaru all lead by Shin. They stood outside the door and glaring at Kami, especially Shin.
“What do you think you’re doing eh? Shin?” said Kami with a smirk.
His eyes were fixated on only Kami, “What do you think you’re doing? Kami?” he replied.
Kami’s smile was gone, “Just having a little fun.” He walked up to Shin who stood straight and tall while Kami’s face hung in front of his, “Now if you don’t mind. Could you and your little friends kindly fuck off? It’s a crowded roof already.” Shin didn’t respond, he didn’t move and his eyes still stared at his cousin in disgust. Kami’s eyebrows rose, “What? Wanna kiss me pretty boy?”
At that moment Shin unleashed a quick punch at Kami’s chest. He flew back and landed awkwardly on his back. Kami got back up.
“Yeah! Go Shin!” Cheered Yuki.
“Seo tend to Daichi. Kiyomaru and Yuki go get Eri. I’ll take care of this sack of shit.” He walked up to Kami who seemed to be a bit more on guard.
“Why the sudden hostility towards your own cousin Shin?”
“Shut up.” Said Shin as they each waited for the other to make the first move.
“What are ya gonna do eh? If you hurt me then it’s your head.”
Shin frowned. His handsome face scrunched up and his fists tightened, “Like hell your dad would touch me! Once he finds out what you’ve been up to then it’s your head!”
“What? And he’ll believe your word over his own son’s?!”
“Seeing as I always tell the truth then yes he will.” He took out a cigarette and lit it up, “Enough fucking round…” he placed the lighter back in his pocket, “You gonna come at me or what?”
Kami ran forward. His fist ready to hit Shin in the face when Shin’s hand suddenly pulled at his wrist and brought him down to the ground.
He twisted Kami’s arm and stood on his lower back, “What ever happened to real fighting?” he asked himself as he sighed and twisted his cousin’s arm even more.
Meanwhile Yuki and Kiyomaru took out Ero and Hanjuro. Yuki’s fight was easy as he had steel cap shoes on, which was against the school uniform policy but he wore them anyway. One kick to the groin and a kick to the head and Ero was out cold, while Kiyomaru simply put a sleeper hold on the distressed Hanjuro.
Rokkan then had thrown Eri at Yuki. Yuki lay on the ground with Eri crushing his small physic.
She got up and helped him up, “Sorry.” She bowed.
He went red and laughed, “And I’m suppose to be the one helping you!”
“Take her out of here Yuki.” Said Kiyomaru as he fought Rokkan.
Rokkan was what Kiyomaru would call all brawn but no brains. Rokkan’s attacks were simply random punches and no strategy at all.
“You’re strong but you lack skill.” Said Kiyomaru before he took Rokkan out with a single blow.
Kiyomaru managed to put a sleeper hold on Rokkan. He fell to the cold hard concrete ground unconscious.
‘Too easy.’ He thought as he stood by and watched Shin and Kami continue to fight.
Seo had picked up Daichi who lay unconscious on the ground. He ran back inside with Yuki and Eri.
“How is he?” asked Yuki. His bright eyes wide and waiting for a positive response.
Seo’s eyes fell on the ground, “We might have to get him to the school nurse. She could get an ambulance if the injuries are bad.”
“What happened Eri?” asked Yuki.
Eri’s eyes went dull as she thought back to the moment where Daichi was being beaten to death, “Ero and Hanjuro just kept hitting and kicking him. To be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if he got brain damage.”
“Don’t say that!” shouted Seo as he ran faster for the nurses office.
Eri had frozen. She saw the persistence and determination in him that she lacked. She watched as Seo ran around the corner. Yuki stopped next to her and put a hand on her shoulder.
“We’re trying to be positive and hope for the best. Besides Seo’s not the kind to give up and accept the worst. None of us are. So come on! Or we’ll loose him for sure!” he smiled and she returned a faint smile before they ran after Seo and Daichi.
Shin had Kami lying on the ground tired and bruised. He felt he couldn’t get up while Shin still hadn’t broken a sweat. He inhaled the last of the cigarette and tossed the butt next to Kami’s head.
“And to think I actually thought of you as family. I don’t want to be related to a piece of ungrateful shit like you.” He turned to Kiyomaru, “Let’s go find the others and see if Dai is ok.” He glared at Kami one last time before leaving.
