Ch.6 Eternal Darkness Of The Cluttered Mind

Jun was squatting on top of the kitchen counter with a frying skillet gripped in one hand raised above her head.

"W-W-WHAT IS THAT THING?" she screamed pointing at Veemon whose head was lowered and who was pawing his back foot on the floor like a bull about to charge.

"Davis, what were you thinking?" Tai demanded.

"I was saving you, sempai!" Davis proclaimed in his defense. "She'll suck ten years off your life if she kisses you—her last boyfriend said so!"

"What made you think we were kissing!" Tai exclaimed.

"Davish, what exactly do you mean by 'flatter than a pancake'?" Veemon asked his partner, confused about his instructions.

"They are not!" Jun shrieked offended clutching at her chest before realizing what the blue creature in front of her had just done. "IT TALKED! THE FREAKY DRAGON THING JUST TALKED!"

"Veemon's not freaky! Unlike some sisters!" Davis shot back. "Hurry, sempai, this is your chance to escape while Veemon's got her cornered!"

"I don't need rescuing, Davis!" Tai shouted exasperated.

Everything had been going so well too, and then it had been interrupted…

Tai froze at his train of thought. What had been interrupted exactly?

"W-why aren't you more surprised?" Jun asked directing the question at him noticing he wasn't freaking out at the appearance of a monster in her home. "Y-you knew about this before, didn't you?" The frying skillet raised above her head was shaking in her hands. "What's going on?"

Tai glanced at Davis. The younger boy was shaking his head vehemently not wanting to divulge any information, but Tai squared his shoulders and began explaining anyway. If Davis hadn't wanted his sister to find out about what he did in his spare time, he really shouldn't blown things out of proportion and had his partner break the door down exposing his secret.

And sometime after Tai had finished giving her the short version of what the Digidestined were, Digimon and the Digital World, a faint glimmer of recollection sparked in Jun's eyes.

"Y-You're those kids from five years ago," she breathed softly, her brown eyes wide. "I remember… when those monsters started appearing everywhere in the city and the ghosts held everyone prisoner at the convention center. You disappeared in a rainbow stream up into this upside-down world in the sky."

Tai nodded soundlessly at her.

"You… and Matt…" she said, her voice breaking slightly. "You have monsters like the twerp…"

"Digimon," Davis corrected acidly.

Tai nodded again.

Jun sat still for several moments in silence taking all this in until at last it seemed the shock had worn off. And instead of firing off accusations at them of why they had kept this from her or nailing Veemon's head in with the skillet, Jun climbed down from the counter and walked past them, a glazed, numb expression splashed across her face for all to see, and locked herself into her room, the frying pan still clenched tightly in her hand.

A long pause followed before Davis spotted unfinished udon simmering on the stove and promptly threw a temper tantrum.

"SON OF A BAKEMON! SHE STOLE MY NOODLE CART IDEA! I'LL SHOW HER! RAMEN WINS OVER UDON ANYDAY, YOU POOR EXCUSE FOR UNABLE TO THINK UP AN ORIGINAL IDEA ON YOUR OWN SISTER!"

Since it looked as if Jun wasn't going to come out anytime soon even to throw back a heated reply and he had absolutely no idea what Davis was ranting about, Tai decided to take his leave of the Motomiya residence and wondered what the bitter sting of disappointment he was feeling meant.

oOo

Matt was leaning against Tai's locker waiting for him the next morning.

"Would you mind explaining what that was yesterday?" he asked with both arms crossed, looking very disgruntled.

"What was what?" Tai said pretending he didn't understand, waiting patiently for him to move out of the way.

Matt didn't budge. "That thing with you getting on Jun's bike and riding off with her."

"It's a moped," Tai corrected. "And it was a just a joke."

"So you're not dating."

"No, now move," Tai said attempting push Matt aside, but the blond stood his ground.

"You don't have to try and hide it if you are," Matt said. "I'd rather you just tell me the truth than lie."

"I am not lying!" Tai shouted, his hackles rising. "Besides, we have bigger things to worry about than whether or not Jun and I are an item. She knows about Digimon now."

"What! You told her—"

"It wasn't me! It was Davis' fault for ordering Veemon to break his door down and attack his sister."

"Why would Davis order Veemon to attack his sister—no wait, that's a stupid question."

"His excuse is that he was trying to rescue me."

"What do you mean… you were at Jun's apartment last night?" Matt exclaimed flabbergasted and the entire conversation of students walking past them ground to halt.

Tai grabbed his friend by the arm and turned their faces away from the crowd of spectators they had gathered. "She only took me there so she could fix me up," he said in a low enough tone that he hoped the on-listeners wouldn't catch, showing off his bandaged hand and split lip.

"Where'd you get those?"

"From some psycho knife-swinging mohawk groupie at the arcade."

"Why were you at the arcade?"

"She drove us there."

"You went to the arcade… with Jun," Matt said slowly.

"Hey, I know what you're thinking, but it doesn't count as a date. I only ate some udon noodles, walked around and shopped a bit with her," Tai stated factually. "Then we ran into some yakuza-wannabes, beat them up a bit and made a quick get-away on her bike—ah, moped. You should have seen her in action—Jun, that is, not the moped—she laid this one guy out flat with her legs! She's got great legs. Strong, I mean, not slender and smooth even though they are… what?"

Matt was gazing at him in a mixture of horrified and fascinated disbelief. "My god, you have gone and fallen head over heels for her haven't you?"

"Don't be stupid!" Tai lashed out, shoving his friend out of the way to gain access to his locker.

There was no need to tell him about how he had tripped over Mohawk dude in his defense of Jun then. Matt would just take that literally.

oOo

There was a very good reason why Tai was on the third floor of the school during lunch break looking for Jun among the seniors and it wasn't because he was missing her or worrying about her since she had seemed a little out of it the night before. No, it was because he had to make sure she wouldn't tell anyone about Digimon and the Digital World. Not that he thought anyone would believe her if she did, but there was bound to be more kids who remembered the incident with Myotismon holding practically everyone in the Tokyo region hostage at the convention center. He couldn't risk the chance of anyone else making the connection between the kids who had defeated the monsters back then and their identities today. Matt had enough trouble with popularity and fans as it was. This would just pop the bubble on his already inflated ego.

"Jun Motomiya?" a brown-haired third-year girl echoed when he asked about her. "Oh! You're that junior boyfriend of hers aren't you?"

"Uh, no," Tai tried to clear up. "That's a common misconception—"

"Omigosh, is that Jun's boyfriend? I wanna see!" squealed a curly-haired girl rushing over quickly. "Oh, how cute!"

"Such adorable hair!" cooed a girl with pixie hair-cut joining them. "I just want to touch it!"

And before Tai had realized what happened, he had become the newest fashion accessory for the senior high school girls to play with. Only able to take their cheek-pinching, hair-ruffling, tie-straightening hands and baby-talk for so long, Tai managed to squirm his way out of the female posse that had formed and ask breathlessly if they knew where Jun was.

"She didn't come to school today, honey. But it's so heartwarming to know that her man cares enough to come and see why his love hasn't appeared before him all day!" a pony-tailed girl swooned dreamily.

"I wish my boyfriend was as considerate as you!" sighed the curly-haired girl.

"Motomiya-san has the right idea to date younger guys! The older ones are too conceited!" stated the girl with the pixie hair-cut. "We should all follow her example!"

Tai decided to leave the classroom then before the glowering third-year guys gave in to their baser urges like staple his fingers to a desk or pour glue in his eyes or by far the most heinous crime ever thought up by mankind: shear off his locks of hair with a pair of scissors.

oOo

So Literature class was an interesting experience for once. Usually, Tai would take naps or pretend to take notes while drawing stick-figure manga as the teacher droned on and on about some Shakespearian sonnet or The Tale of Genji or some other Eastern/Western author or story, but this time the lesson actually held his attention. This current semester, they were studying poetry from all around the world and today they were learning about haikus.

Three line poetry with a syllable order of 5-7-5? God, why hadn't they taught this easy stuff back in primary school? He would have gotten an 'A' for sure back then and those cool Megaman sneakers his mom had promised as a reward for good grades. Instead he had received a 'B-' and he had been banned from playing soccer for an entire month.

Okay, so apparently, he had muttered all that under his breath unknowingly and Sora had heard it and reminded him they had been taught haikus back in primary school but he had been playing his GameBoy on mute under his desk so he had missed out on that lesson.

Well, that certainly sucked finding out. Curse Mario and his magic mushrooms! Curse them! He could have been a mad genius poet by now selling his haikus for millions and millions of yen, that's how easy and natural this stuff flowed to him.

She can fight weirdos
But freaks at a Digimon
Unbelievable.

This school is insane
Thinking we are a couple
I do not like her.

Mopeds are awesome
I'm totally getting one
Screw Mazdas. So lame.

So he had decided to go see how Jun was doing as soon as school let out, but a bit of a knot got tangled up in his plans.

Because he might have kinda gotten sent to have a nice little chat with the principal.

After ripping his sheet of haikus out of the Literature teacher's hands and threatening to kick his ass six ways to Sunday.

But really the snoopy bastard shouldn't have started to read them to the class out loud.

oOo

Conversation between Tai and Izzy via D-Terminals:

Heard you were disrespectful to Takashi-sensei today.

-Izzy

Idiot teacher
Should not be allowed to teach
Wise students. Dumb jerk.

-Tai

What's your punishment, Master Haiku Artist?

-Izzy

Big man on campus
Give me task of trash-cleaning
second floor classrooms.

-Tai

Ouch. Sorry ;^; At least it's not the entire building right? For how long?

-Izzy

Starting as of now
Until the New Year rolls in
This is all her fault.

-Tai

Her? Are you talking about Jun? Matt said you went on a date with her yesterday^w^

-Izzy

IT WAS NOT A DATE
PRETTY BOY BLOND ROCK STAR LIES
IT WAS NOT A DATE! DX

-Tai

I don't think the haiku counts if the last line is the same as the first^^;;

-Izzy

I'M THE HAIKU GOD
BOW BEFORE THE WONDER OF
MY DIVINE POETRY.

-Tai

So was yesterday just a one-time thing or are you planning to make the relationship permanent? :D

-Izzy

HAIKU GOD WILL COME
TO YOUR HOME TOMORROW AND
DESTROY GEEK'S LAPTOP.

-Tai

XD Alright, inferior mortal is sorry he offended the Great Haiku God. I just got an update from Yolei. The younger kids ran into a familiar face today in the Digital World while taking down control spires.

-Izzy

:o ?

-Tai

Ken's back.

-Izzy

To Be Continued…

A/N: Oh dear, do I sense plot? In a romance fic? Le gasp! What's wrong with Jun? Is Tai actually missing her? And… how awesome are Tai's haikus? XD Yeah, you're a god alright, buddy, God of Bad Poetry perhaps. I should have a little Tai's Haiku Corner at the end of every chapter and have him spill his reflections. That should be very fun^^ Muwahahahaha!

Fun Facts: yes, I get my Japanese school information from watching anime/dramas and reading manga^^;; But I do look things up if I'm not certain about it. Like here, I was going to have the Lit teacher give Tai detention, then I realized I had never seen any student in a Japanese show/book receive detention, so I googled Japanese school punishments up. It depends on which school you go to again, but apparently there's a discipline teacher who whacks misbehaving students with a cane as corporal punishment. However, mostly, the student gets a sound chewing out by the teachers and principals and parents and this is effective enough for them never to act out again in class in the same manner as before. It's like verbal abuse making them feel guilty for their transgressions. Whoa. o.O

Just to let everyone know, I made tsukimi udon for me and my friends from scratch. Followed a recipe I found online and went looking for ingredients. I thought I would have a hard time finding the mirin (rice wine), but the thing that gave me the most trouble was the udon noodles. I went to five different grocery shops before I found them and I was so happy I bought two packages. Cooked it twice now. The first time didn't go so well as I had no idea what I was doing and the noodles were a bit undercooked and sticking together and I forgot to cook the vegetables in the broth so they were crunchy and the egg was more raw than I would have liked. But the second time I cooked this… OMG, DELICIOUS! NEW FAVORITE SOUP! You guys have got to try this out sometime. X3

I hope you have enjoyed reading this! Please review and share your thoughts and favorite scenes. I love hearing what you liked best and it's the only reward a fanfic author gets. I like knowing what my readers think and feel. Thank you!^^

On to next chapter All The World's A Stage

Ah, sorry it took so long to reply! I love your reviews!^^ I think you're the first person I ever met who loves Tai as obsessively much as I do. Matt usually gets everyone's love from what I've seen in fics.

Next part is up if you want to read and really, try the tsukimi udon someday. It's soooo good! I'm going to have to start cooking every udon recipe I find now. It's like the offical Junichi product now! XD

lol, no worries! If only I was fluent in English... I could try to say more, givind a decent opinion on other stuff (I mean... I sense good grammar, but hell if I'm fluent enough to talk about this with a native speaker--- #shot). The only thing I can talk about is the way the characters are portraited and the situations they are played with. And the situations YOU make up are very very enjoyable. xDD

(I'm totally suspect as a Taichi fan /laughs But it doesn't mean your fanfic doesn't have merit for calling out my attention.)

Keep it up. =)
