The scene was playing through in his minds eye. Shinji was going through it over and over again. What was it that was causing her to do what she was doing? Lost of memories wouldn't cause this. Would it really? It just didn't make sense. Maybe when she left in a huff she hurt herself somewhere along the lines. Got a bump on the head and turned into...this? Something had to pan out. That wasn't the only thing going on through his head. There was something else going on. He knew it since she disappeared. Students acting out in mass numbers against her in a very public setting then forgetting about it after doing it? It was way too convenient and obviously a ploy. Someone around here was up to something and not just that, but was working for someone. No one just does this as a prank. It something that had to have been premeditated for a legitimate reason. Well, to them at least. Takeshi most likely noticed the same mess Shinji had and was probably already doing something about it. That would be like him to go behind what Shinji told him (which was to keep his nose clean) to do what he wants. Yeah...that's Takeshi.
"Yo." Speak of the devil. “Hey.” Was said before a punch to the ribs. Gah, what was that about? Not now Takeshi. Rubbing his side Shinji looked critically over at Takeshi. "Lookin' sour there, Shinji-kun. Then again, feeling like s**t is normal if a close friend suddenly performed a Face Heel Turn." Well that's certainly an interesting way to put it. “I suppose...” Shinji let escape his lips quietly looking away from Takeshi continuing to walk forward. Not even really knowing where he was going. Just pacing the halls thinking. There was a chuckle following, "Hey, let's grab somethin' to eat. I feel like I haven't eaten anythin' since the sun rose!" Shinji looked back over at Takeshi quickly protesting, “I'm not--” Then there was a jab at his stomach with Takeshi's finger. "And I bet you haven't been eating too well ether, eh?" Pursing his lips Shinji opened his mouth to say, “Don't--” Now there was a poke at his side. Shinji promptly shooed Takeshi's hand away from him. "Look at that flat stomach o' yours! There's like nothin' in there!" Well yeah, Akane thinks everyone is super human like her! It wasn't anywhere near as bad as Tomoko or Deb had it, but that's a story for another day.
"But seriously, don't keep it to yourself. That only works if you're the hot-blooded and determined type of character in anime and last time I checked, you were more the Long-Haired Pretty Boy type... And when those types got into BSOD mode all alone, it usually gets worse and they leave the team by justifying that they'll keep everyone safe and do it all alone." Takeshi whispered as he flopped his arm around Shinji's shoulder. “You know, sometimes you don't make any sense at all.” Finally, Shinji got a word in edge wise. “And I'm not a pretty boy!” He added in there not wanting to listen to what Takeshi was having to say. There was nothing wrong with not wanting to endanger others if need be.
"So, let's just avoid all that right of the bat!" Shinji rolled his eyes. “Yeah yeah.” Then just as Takeshi loved to do he threw in a, "After all, it's not like you're on a diet or anythin' right? Don't be such a girl!" Shinji's eye twitched for a moment as he exclaimed, “I'm not a girl, damn it Takeshi!” If the girls weren't glaring at Takeshi they were surely glaring at Shinji at this point. What was with Takeshi loving to get Shinji in hot water? It was to the point of ridiculous sometimes, but in situations like this it was a nice way to get his mind off things.
"Behold!" That b*****d. He had been leading Shinji the entire time towards the cafeteria and he hadn't noticed because he was too busy being poked and prodded. "The cafeteria! Food, drinks, and teenagers loitering and getting in the way of other people who need the tables to eat!" Shinji was about to slap the s**t out of Takeshi. “Takeshi I said--” "Is this not a wonderful sight of school life?" 'I hate my life.' Shinji had a defeated look on his face. “Yes...”
At this point Shinji was allowing himself to be dragged around. "Come on, let's grab a bite and sit down and catch up." Catch up? "After all, I was, for the most part, left unattended on school campus. Aren'tcha interested in what I did over the break?" No. “No.” Sighing Shinji rubbed his eyes with his index and thumb. Rubbing up placing his palm against his forehead he rubbed his palm back down to his chin letting out a huff of a breath. “I'm sorry Takeshi, I'm just a bit preoccupied,” Motioning towards himself with his index finger circling around the side of his head as if making the crazy motion. “but sure.”
After an eventful lunch line scene where Takeshi was gabbing it up with the cafeteria workers and Shinji almost tripped over a girl. Not paying attention because Takeshi called his name at the last second. So in the end blaming Takeshi for the whole thing. After apologies towards the girl and paying for her lunch to make up for the ordeal they were finally finding a table to sit down at. “So I take it that you were doing more than planning that over the break.” Yeah, either Takeshi was going to grin and say something smart or he was going to blather something that just didn't make sense. Nah, he'd probably say something to make Shinji sound the closet pervert in the situation. Yup, Shinji calls that one. “What have you been doing over the break? Don't spare me the details.” That would be something Shinji would probably hate himself for later, but making sure Takeshi was keeping his nose clean was important. However annoying he could be at times Shinji did care about Takeshi and he didn't like the idea of him getting himself in harms way. Not like he had room to talk, but it didn't stop him from worrying. On top of it all, maybe Takeshi could give some useful information. Something that could have happened while everyone was gone that he noticed that may answer some questions on the Yukina front.
