After finishing the food…
Harumi: “What should we do now?”
Me: “Play some games together?”
Harumi: “The same old shooting game we played?”
Me: “Sure.” then I received a text.
Me: “Tomorrow’s lectures are cancelled…”
Harumi: “Talk about coincidence…”
Me: “Let’s play till late then.”
We played with the console in the living room. I had never smiled this much in such a long time. We had a great time.
We finished playing and we chilled in the living room for a bit.
Me: “I assume I’m sleeping on the couch tonight.”
Harumi: “No, you are sleeping with me tonight.”
Me: “You are weird.”
Me: “I’m not going to sleep with you.”
Harumi: “Why??? I called you here just to get you to sleep with me tonight.” and she starts to give me puppy eyes.
Me: “Sigh… Fine… When did you develop that ability…”
Harumi giggled: “Let’s go…” and she pulled my hand.
We went upstairs to her room.
Me: “I will sleep on the floor…”
Harumi: “I don’t have an extra bed.”
Me: “I can handle the floor.”
Harumi: “Why are you so hesitant about sleeping with me? We are not doing anything lewd.”
Me: “I’m not ready… I came here just to do homework.”
Harumi: “But… I just want to move on with the relatoionship, I thought because we knew each other for so long, so we can move on faster…”
Me: “But I prefer taking things slow…”
Harumi: “But… I’m running out of time…”
Me: “Huh? What did you say?”
Harumi: “Nothing… Okay, I’m sorry, I will slow down. But… I really want to embrace you in bed…” and she got in bed.
Me: “Fine…” and I joined her.
Harumi: “Thank you… and sorry for rushing things…” and she hugged me.
Me: “It’s fine… At least you understand.”
Harumi: “I love you…”
And I fell asleep.
The next morning, I woke up and Harumi isn’t beside me. I got up, washed up, brushed my teeth and went downstairs.
Harumi: “Good morning! Sit down, breakfast is almost ready…”
Me: “You could have woken me up when you woke up… I can help out with breakfast.”
Harumi: “I can make breakfast on my own.” and she served breakfast.
We started eating.
Me: “Want to go on a date later?”
Harumi: “I was waiting for you to ask me out!”
Me: “Okay, its a yes then.”
Harumi: “What are we going to do today?”
Me: “Hmm, going to keep it a surprise.”
Harumi: “Aww… Horror movies again?”
Me: “Nah, I nearly lost my hearing the other time, so I’m not going to watch horror movies with you ever again.”
Harumi: “So sorry…” and winked at me.
We both changed clothes and went out for our date. We watched a romance movie and Harumi cried like a baby at the end.
Me: “You want me to buy more tissues?”
Harumi sobbed: “It’s fine…”
Me: “It’s just a movie…. No one actually died…”
Harumi: “But… it sounds so real…”
I sighed and held her hand: “Okay, wipe that face and let’s go somewhere to relax.”
We went to the park.
Harumi: “A crepe stand! I want…”
Me: “Let’s go get it then.”
Harumi: “Yay… You are paying.”
Me: “As usual.”
Harumi snickered. I got a Blueberry Crepe and she got a Strawberry Crepe. We walked to a bench and sat down.
Me: “You are especially clingy today…”
Harumi: “No reason…”
We ate quietly.
Me: “You still want to eat dinner after this… or are you cooking again?”
Harumi: “We can eat at that café again.”
Me: “Hmm, you sure?”
Harumi: “Yeah, I’m not picky.”
Me: “Okay then.”
We then went to the café, but it’s crowded.
Me: “Eh? This is weird… It’s a Monday…”
Harumi: “Want to go somewhere else?”
Me: “Ramen instead?”
We then went to my favourite ramen place.
Harumi: “Never knew there is a ramen shop here…”
Me: “I always eat here alone after school.”
Harumi: “Oh I see…”
Me: “It’s usually empty.”
We entered the ramen place and there is no one inside. We ordered our food swiftly. The ramen came in no time too.
Harumi: “It’s great!”
Harumi: “You always know where all the great food are.”
Me: “The good point of dating a loner then.”
Harumi: “Hmm… I see.”
Me: “That café was a dream place for me, to bring a girl for a date.”
Harumi: “Looks like your dream has been fulfilled.”
Me: “Yeah. I want to thank you for that.”
After dinner and walked her home. Harumi kissed me in the lips before she entered her home.
We went on and date for a few weeks.
One day in school…
Harumi: “Hey, Yuji…”
Harumi: “If I were to move out… are you still willing to date me?”
Me: “Move out as in… next town? City?”
Me: “Ah… I don’t know…”
Harumi: “Haha, it’s a hard question to ask…”
Me: “Why the sudden question? Something wrong?”
Harumi: “Nah, no reason. Just a random thought…”
2 weeks after she asked me the question…
A fine Saturday morning, my phone rang. It’s a text from Harumi.
“I’m breaking up with you.”
