First Love Academy with a twist!

Humor / Romance

Chapter 1

It was a bright and sunny day in the town. The sky was a beautiful pristine blue, and the leaves in the trees were softly blowing in the light breeze. Birds chirped and fluttered around the wonderfully scented flowers. Everyone seemed perfectly happy and content, walking and chatting with their friends as they merrily made their way to school.

There was one exception however - a young boy by the name of Len.

He sighed as he not so happily walked to school. Yesterday, both he and Gumi confessed their feelings to Rin. She had replied with an unclear answer - but he knew that she wasn't going to choose either of them any time soon.

He took the letter for Rin out of his bag, and stared at it as he tried to figure out why she had rejected him.

Maybe it was how he confessed? Maybe the love letter just wasn't enough? Well, he always knew that he wasn't the best at stuff like this. This was the first time he had ever fallen in love, and he wasn't sure how to deal with it properly. Perhaps Rin liked manlier guys? He had always been shy growing up after all, so as a result he didn't have many friends.

Well, except for one.

Yes, him and Gumi used to be friends. They grew up in the same street as each other, so they would often play together when they had nothing to do. The other boy used to be so different. He was much nicer and less cocky, like he is now. His ego wasn't as inflated, which is probably why he was so willing to be his friend in the first place. They would hang out all the time; they'd do things like play sports together, go to each other's house, and sometimes even just talk. He had noted that Gumi also had a habit of being very polite and gentlemanly towards any girl he found pretty or attractive. He claimed that every man should be kind to all females; although he only ever talked to the attractive ones. He guessed that this was the beginning of how he behaves now; self centred and over confident.

He admitted that he sort of missed those days where they hung out together and just had fun. He figured those days wouldn't come back though. They couldn't, not with how Gumi acts now.

When Len finally made it to school, he trudged to his locker and stuffed his shoes in. He wasn't really in the mood for studying and doing worksheets at the moment.

No, that's not good Len. You have to study. You have to study...

But no matter what he told himself, he still couldn't concentrate as the teacher lectured the class about algebra equations and how to solve them. He tried to pay attention, he really did - but he still couldn't as he tuned out of the teacher's rather loud voice. Looking down at his worksheet, he tried to come up with new ways to express his feelings to Rin. Could he make another love letter?

Nah, if it didn't work the first time it's not going to work again.

Do it over text?

That wouldn't be very romantic...

Just tell her?

No, I would just end up fainting from nervousness and I wouldn't be able to tell her!

Do what Gumi does and hand her a rose along with a cheesy pick up line?

He tried to picture himself as Gumi, walking up to a girl as if it were nothing and somehow charming her instantly with just a rose and a smile.

He shook his head to rid the impossible image; that would never be him, not in a million years!

Len sighed again. He couldn't come up with any good ways to confess to her, so he sat in his seat and patiently waited for the lesson to be over.


When the period finally ended, he got his things and ran out of the classroom, on his way to the next class. He suddenly collided with another student, and fell on his butt to the floor.

"Hey! Watch where you're goi- oh, if it isn't you."

Len rubbed his head in pain, the part where he hit the hardest. He looked up, and saw a certain boy with green hair.

"Gumi!"

"The one and only," Gumi flipped his hair and sniffed his rose as he dusted himself off.

"What are you doing?" Len asked him, then winced as Gumi sniffed his rose. How can he smell something so strong-smelling so often?

"What am I doing?" Gumi scoffed, rolling his eyes. "I was just going to my next class. Unlike you, who's probably wandering the halls aimlessly like an idiot."

Len glared at him. He was NOT an idiot!

"Well, whatever. See you later, fool." Gumi threw another insult at him and walked away, waving at a few girls who were goggling at him.

Len was still glaring at his back, but he let go of his shoulders as he sighed for the umpeeth time today. Why did Gumi and him have to hate each other so much? He was tired of arguing every time they talked to each other. If even for a second, he wished they could actually agree on something.

It's hopeless, he thought. That will never happen.


The bell rang, signalling the end of school. Len was walking down the hall, muttering some apologies to people he accidentally brushed against. He got his things and started walking back home. He was only half way home when he realized something.

Oh no, I forgot my pencils! I need them to complete the English assignment too! Seems like that was the only thing I paid attention to...

Len headed back to the school, rushing to get there so his mother wouldn't scold him. When he got there, it was deserted. It seemed like everyone had gone home already.

He ran down the hallway, not caring if he was loud, since there wasn't anyone there. He opened the door to his classroom, and walked up to his desk. The boy was relieved to find that his pencils were still in there. He quickly grabbed them, stuffing them into his bag as he closed the classroom door and made his way down the hall.

The boy was walking when he noticed some sounds coming from the corner near the stairs. He jumped a little and stopped walking, wondering what it was. Who could possibly be at school at this hour? Maybe they had forgotten something too?

But when Len poked his head around the corner, he was greeted to the most shocking image possible. His eyes widened considerably at the sight of it.

Rin and Miku, the senpai who was a year older than him, were kissing!

Nononono. This can't be happening! Len jerked his head back and hid from the atrocious scene behind him.

It can't be. I had my suspicions, but is the class rep really a le- a les-

He couldn't even say it without nearly gagging. He couldn't believe it. Rin, the responsible class rep and his first love, was dating a girl!

Okay, calm down. Maybe I just didn't see correctly. Maybe they were just talking with their faces really close. Yea, that's what they were doing... At this point, Len had convinced himself that it really didn't happen. But, just to make sure, he peeked again.

Sure enough, Rin and Miku had just parted from each other, basking in the afterglow of their passionate kiss. They were lost in the other's eyes, breathing heavily and blushing.

It wasn't that! They were really kissing!

Len had about enough for the day. He just wanted to go home, bury his face in a pillow and cry. It was the end of the world as he knew it.

He decided that he would exit the school building the other way, so he turned around and ran away from the scene of the crime as fast as he could. His face was flushed and he was so embarrassed, still not wanting to believe what he had just witnessed.

"Uwaah..." He whined to himself. "What am I gonna do..."
