Crap. Crap. I feel like crap. Ugh.
Well, I feel less like crap today than i did yesterday, but I still feel like crap.
Y’know, I just noticed that I’ve been neglecting this journal thing. School and work combined have been hella busy for the past month. And now I’m sick. I’ve BEEN sick for the past three days. It sucks. Like hell.
Well, there’s one good effect, and that’s that the old man’s actually been taking care of me. …When he noticed I was sick, I mean. It took him a while, but he noticed. That’s an improvement. Heck, he even turned every cabinet in the apartment upside down looking for medicine.
Eh, I’m being unfair. My dad’s a better person now, he really is. Doesn’t drink half as much, and he’s starting to try and find and a job. And I know he cares about me, in his own way. He just doesn’t show it too much.
Yeah, I enjoyed being babied by the old man for a while. He hasn’t done that to me in some time.
I don’t know where I got this damn fever. No one at school or at work has been sick. And it hit just as I was on my way home. It got worse when I actually got home, and stupid me, instead of trying to cool my body off I wrapped myself up in a load of blankets.
Don’t look at me like that. I wasn’t thinking straight, and it was one of those fevers when you’re hot, but you feel bone-cold. The blankets felt good for the first few hours. Then I felt like I was burning. It was freakin’ scary. I must have been crying or something, coz that’s when the old man came in. After that I don’t remember much apart from a wet towel on my head and the blanket only reduced to one instead of three, and hearing the old man cuss and swear at the cabinets for not having any medicine. Then I slept. And probably took medicine at some point, but there you have it.
Hanajima and Tohru passed by two days ago. They were worried when I didn’t got to school and wanted to check up on me. They brought Kyon-kyon along, too. Hah. Sucker. Bet he didn’t want to let Tohru find her way home alone, after.
That talk in the classroom cleared up a lot. Haha.
Right, now I’ve got to go rest up. Later.
I can’t believe I haven’t written about this yet. But a couple of days ago, I had a damn interesting conversation with carrot-top.
He likes Tohru. Heck, he’s head-over-freakin’-heels into her. He doesn’t want to admit it, and he didn’t say so to my face, but he is.
And the funny thing is, I don’t mind as much as I thought I would.
Yeah. We pretty much had a long and serious talk. It was funny coz I started out by teasing him about the one-piece, two-piece thing. He never answered that. Haha.
But the serious part was weird, actually. Because we weren’t subtle about things, but neither of us blatantly said anything either. Like, he never once said, “Yes, I like her.” When I asked what Tohru was to him, he just said, “A really close friend.”
He thinks I didn’t hear what he said after that, hahaha.
But the other stuff he said? It impressed me, to be completely truthful. I mean, from day one, Hanajima and I knew that one of them, Kyou or Yuki, would be the one to have Tohru. I wasn’t sure which one I preferred. Yuki seemed to be more of the gentleman, but he didn’t seem right. Sue me for talking about all these cheesy crap, but it’s true.
Kyou just proved to me that I don’t have to worry about anything, if I leave Tohru to him.
Of course, that won’t stop me from giving him a hella hard time. Hah. Or from teasing the crap out of him.
Oh. I haven’t even told Hana about this yet. I really should, soon.
