I dreamed the dream where I got confessed, will it be a reality?
It's lunch time, I go to the cafetaria because I bring no meal so I have to buy it anyway. The cafetaria is kinda big but not so big, with total capacity of one hundred people can be fit here. The menus are variated, from sandwiches to ramens, you can fill your stomach with high carbohydrates or just eat snacks just a few.
As usual, I order a sandwich for lunch, it's beef sandwich. Price not to expensive for my pocket though and you can last till time to go home.
After order a sandwich, I return to my class. There's no need for me to stay here because it's to crowded here. And I really have no one to eat with. If you ask where Katsuo, he is in anotherther class, more exactly in his girlfriend class. Darn you Katsuo, just because you have one, you let me alone. Gah, nevermind, I just have you enjoy it anyway.
"Uehara-kun, do you have time?"
Wait, what? I think I heard someone called my name from behind. It's sound like a girl's voice.
I turn my head and surprised by what I see. It's she, I mean Shirakawa Yukiko, 'the untouchable ice'. W-why does she here? And why does she call me? And why me? Am I doing wrong?
"If you have time, follow me to the rooftop. There's something I want to tell you."
Um, rooftop, what? Why rooftop? Wait a minute, is it a confession? Really? Does my dream will come to a reality? The dream that just I saw recently. Is it mean my popular phase already come? Too many questions are cross my head.
Okay, okay, calm yourself down, Kazuki. Don't humiliate yourself, it will be really bad if that happen, y'know.
"Um, yeah! I have... time, I guess."
"I guess? I will consider that as yes."
With that, I follow her to the rooftop. Wait, I forgot to eat my sandwich. Heh, nevermind. I can eat that later after it.
It's lunchtime on the rooftop, there are two people here include me. We standing face to face. Umm, I'm getting nervous now. What is it, she want to tell to me? I'm sweating now.
"Uehara-kun, I- I..."
It's the time, good bye my lonely time and hello my popular phase.
"Uehara-kun, do you want- want to join tea ceremony club?"
"Eh, what? What is it Uehara-kun? Why did you shouting? Is it something weird to ask? Or do you don't want to?"
"Um, no, I mean. That's it?"
"What do you mean 'that's it'?"
"It's not a confession?"
"Um, nevermind, forget it, okay!"
"Well then, if you say so. But I still don't understand what do you mean."
Darn it, what do you hope so high, you stupid Kazuki. Of course it is not. Who do you thin you are to be confessed by a 'S-tier girl'. Of course your dream won't come true that easily. Furthermore, do you think the girl in your dream will appear in real life too. And even does she is really 'that girl' in the first place? Arrgghhh, now I'm done.
"Are you okay, Uehara-kun?" Shirakawa-san seems worried.
"I'm okay, it's not a big deal. I just have something in my mind."
"That's good then? Um, so what is your answer?"
"Tea ceremony club. I invite you to join tea ceremony club, so what's your answer then?"
"Owh, that! Um, well, why exactly do you invite me?"
"It's because the 'senpai' from third year already graduate and there's noone in current third year. So do as a new recruit, noone join tea ceremony club this year. So I the only one remains in the club. If it's stays like that, the tea ceremony club will be disbanded. That's why I invite you."
"Well, so why me? I mean there's plenty of students are there to invited so why me?"
If what she said was true that she the only one in the club, and she has to invite someone, so why it has to be me? That's what I don't understand at.
"That's b- because... I saw you, before."
"Saw me... What?"
"It's three years ago in Kyoto. In the Japanese garden, I saw you served the tea well. The quality of the tea was stunningly out of way. It's flawless just likd it's feel like you were born for it."
"Um, thanks." That's really made me flustered.
So she was there too. That time, three years ago.
