Sakuri stays silent and starts to shake.Bookmark here

"Don't tell me that you thought that boy scared me off. Now, it's payday." Futaba put her hand out expecting Sakuri to give her money.Bookmark here

Sakuri begins to cry and still is shaking not knowing what to do and then someone enters.Bookmark here

"It's you again. Futaba-san was it?"Bookmark here

"H-Haku-san?" Sakuri looked to see who was talking and it was none other than Makoto.Bookmark here

"Tch, you again." Futaba stared annoyed looking at Makoto.Bookmark here

"You're not expecting Sakuri-san to hand over her money are you?"Bookmark here

"And so what if I do?!"Bookmark here

"I'll have to do something about it." Makoto began to get serious and was not playing around with Futaba.Bookmark here

Futaba felt the intimidating aura that Makoto was exerting and started to back down.Bookmark here

"Yeah right, you won't do anything."Bookmark here

Makoto walks up to her face and looks down at her with a mean look. Futaba starts to sweat nervously.Bookmark here

"Do you believe me now? If so then leave Sakuri-san alone."Bookmark here

"F-Fine!"Bookmark here

Futaba leaves without Sakuri's money again. As she leaves Makoto goes up to Sakuri to console her.Bookmark here

"It's okay Sakuri-san. Whenever you need someone to protect you I'll always be there by your side." Makoto says as he is smiling.Bookmark here

"T-Thank you H-Haku-san." Sakuri has to look down in order to hide her red face from Makoto. But she accepts it and looks up so she can see Makoto's face and smiles. They stand there looking at each other for a while and Makoto begins to notice something about Sakuri. She looks cute.Bookmark here

"Are we interrupting something?" Aoki said in a teasing way.Bookmark here

"A-Aoki-san?!" They had both been drawn out from their deep thought and saw that Aoki and Kota had come back with the cleaning supplies.Bookmark here

Kota and Aoki then gave Makoto and Sakuri a mop and some cleaner. Aoki goes to Sakuri's side to tease her.Bookmark here

"So Sakuri-senpai what were you guys doing when we weren't here?"Bookmark here

"Eh!? N-Nothing."Bookmark here

"Hmmm? Are you lying? You both were just standing there looking at each other a certain way."Bookmark here

"I-I said we didn't do a-anything."Bookmark here

"Is that true Haku-senpai?"Bookmark here

Makoto goes to speak before getting cut off by Kota.Bookmark here

"Enough with the teasing we have to clean this up."Bookmark here

With that the four of them cleaned up the club room floor as best as they could.Bookmark here
