I never believed I would find someone. I mean, Who wants to date a bean pole with red hair and freckles? Basically a ginger, even though that's just a stupid stereotype. It was hard enough for me to deal with the stereotypes, let alone being single. But there was one guy who I felt like I'd known for years. Kotoshi-ma. I met him last year when I was a freshman in high school. And that was before his, accident, of course. Poor guy, going deaf changed his life so drastically. I would do anthing to see him happy again.
"Hey Mark today's he last day of the fair you wanna go with me and Tchani?" I asked my litttle brother. He was good I suppose for a week, so why not?
"Really?" he said as his face light up like glow flies.
"Yeah we'll pay for you." said Tchani. "You deserve it bud."
She smiles and pats him on the back.
"Come on guys we ain't got all night." I said. we hopped in the "Car" which was just a 99 BMW. "Old piece of junk." I mumbled under my breath.
When we pulled up in a parking spot I looked innthe rear veiw mirrior and my jaw drops. I see Koto coming out of his pick up and walking towards the front gate. I told Tchani and Mark to wait a minute so it didn't seem like I was following him. After he walked in we went and paid for 30 tickets. Tchani and mark took off to the ballon darts and the food stands. I glanced over and saw Koto start to sit down on a park bench. I walked over and placed my arm on his shoulders. He darts around and looks at me.
"Rinsuki- uh,hi!......." He says, unusually loud.
"Hey Koto, what are you at the fair for?" I asked, trying to sound normal.
"I brought Shara here shes been begging me all week." he says, I just wanted to stare at his eyes but that would be creepy, so I got an idea.
"Typical 13 year olds. Think that they should get anything they want. Saddening isn't it?" I said.
"Yeah..." he replied.
Then my idea kicked in. "Hey I got some extra tickets wanna hit the Faris wheel?" I ask.
"Sure, sounds fun." he said.
"Well lets go!" I said, feeling like I just got a adrenaline shot.
I grabbed his arm and lifted him off the bench, and with out letting go, ran to the Faris wheel. I gave the man the tickets and got in one of the carriages. I sat down and Koto sat across from me.
"I love it when they stop you at the top, the veiw is amazing. Have you ever rode a Faris wheel with your girlfriend Koto?" I ask, looking out the window.
"I don't have a girlfriend, my last dumped me after, well I'm sure you know." he said saddened.
"Oh, I'm so sorry." I said looking down, what the hell was I thinking?
"It's okay. She was a brat anyway." he said. I walked over and sat next to him, resting my head on his shoulder.
Then I asked,"Koto, do you want a girlfriend?" He looked bafulled.
"Yeah, that would be nice, but no one wants to date a deaf guy, it's just not what women consider attractive." he said, then that's when I let it all out.
"Well I'm not one of those women am I? I like you Koto, so I was wondering if you wanted to be my boyfriend."
His face turned red. I went to kiss him on the cheek, but at the same time he turned his head, I guess to tell me something, just at the right angle. And in that split second, we locked lips. My face went so red I thought my face would explode. But I didn't want it to stop, thid is what I've been wanting to do for the past year, and I wasn't chickening out. He put his arm around me, and held me tight, and then thats when he really got into it. I put my hand on his cheek and returned the favor. And the best part? We were stoped at the top.
