Chapter 6:

Akio loves Miyoko !???

Teenage life isn't supposed to be like this

As we were walking back home Akio stated a conversation about Miyoko.

"Hey what do you guys think about Miyoko."

"Hmmm, Miyoko eh she is good. may be?." Said Akiyoshi.

"No, I am asking whether you guys have a crush on her". Asked Akio with a little reddish face.

"Okay I can see where this is going. Do you have a crush on her." I asked him.

"Yes I like her. I mean I love her."

"So why did you asked whether we like her or not." Akiyoshi asked.

"Well I wanted to know if I had any competition among us if not I want you guys to help me." Akio asked.

"Wait, help, I don't think I can do that." I said.

"Why is that ? because you like her? I knew that you liked her Itsuki-kun. You like her don't you? " He asked while Akiyoshi stood as if he knew nothing.

"What? ,No!" I said.

"No you like her I know it, Okay from now on we are friends but rivals in love. I will compete fair and square so should you. Okay I will be leaving now. " He said and left.

"Oi Akiyoshi why didn't you try to say something and convince him that I am not in love with Miyoko." I said.

"It is because I don't like to tell lies." He said cooly.

"W-why you little?" I said angrily.

"Now what is your problem anyways?" He asked.

"What is my problem you ask?. What if he tells the whole class about this and Miyoko will know that I like her and she will talk to me anymore. It is over. It is all over. The love life I have dreamt of is over before it even Started." I said with a panicked face.

"Now, now, he did say he will compete fair and square right. He won't play cheap tricks like that. Don't worry." Akiyoshi said.

"You think." I said a little calmly.

"Yeah now let's go home now." He said.

"Okay. Yeah I just remembered that I have to go to work in Miyoko's restaurant to work. Bye." I said and ran off.

"His mode changed instantly." Said Akiyoshi.

I reached home, kept my school bag at my room. Ran to take a  bath and came to my room took the uniform and started sprinting to Miyoko's restaurant. Soon enough I reached her restaurant.

"Hey Miyoko I am here." I said happily. 

"Woah Miyoko is very cute in her uniform." I thought.

"Welcome Itsuki-kun". She said in a sweet voice.

"Okay you can start by cleaning the table over there." She said as she pointed towards the table.

" Okay " I said and went there.

A few moments after cleaning the table. A customer came sat down. He was old and looked really calm. He then called me. I went to take the order but was a bit nervous though.

"Yes" I said nervously.

" Yes I want a tempura."

"Okay" I said.

I went and gave the order. When I returned another customer came in. He was big man. He looked very angry. He called me out.

"Yes sir." I said. And I was shivering as he looked very angry and I went towards him. 

"I want a plate of Sushi." He said.

" Okay sir."I said.

Both the sushi and tempura came on the same time and I walked slowly.

"Come fast" The big man said in a very loud and angry voice. 

Miyoko watched me as this happened. When all this happened I panicked and got confused. 

"Who ordered sushi and who ordered the tempura." I thought

"Give it man." The big man said.

"Crap" I thought.

Then I gave the old man the sushi and the loud noisy man a tempura.

"Oi young man I asked a Sushi why did you give me a tempura."

"Oh crap looks like I messed up. Oh no Miyoko is watching me." I thought.

"Sorry, it is my first time here. I got a little nervous." I said to both of them.

"Ohh now I get it. It's ok" said the big man while laughing.

"Don't worry. It's fine." The old man said with a smile.

Then I gave the old man the tempura he asked and the big man the sushi. Everything seemed to become normal now.

The work time was over and I was about to leave I went to talk about the incident.

" Sorry, Miyoko."

" For what ?"She asked.

"For what had happened before."

"Ohh. It isn't a big deal. All kinds of things happen when we are nervous. So it is nothing to worry about. Let me tell you something. I had worked in the kitchen just a few months ago .I was cooking and I had put sugar instead of salt in the foods that I had prepared and it turned into a big mess. And ever since that I only worked as a waitress and this is easy for me also. So it nothing to worry about." She said with a smile.

"Thanks Miyoko. And bye" I said.

"Bye. See you tomorrow." She said.
