Why Is This Girl So Shy Around Me?!
Makoto's jaw dropped from shock because of what Futaba has just said.
"W-What?" Makoto exclaimed.
Everyone else is just as shocked as Makoto is because they wouldn't think Futaba would join. Kota was feeling the same way Makoto was coming from the fact that Makoto said she was not interested in it.
"I-I gave it more thought and I decided to a-accept your offer to join." Futaba said while fidgeting.
Makoto came back down from his shock and contemplated what Futaba said.
"Nah, we already got a fifth member. We don't need you to join anymore." Makoto thought it would be funny to mess with Futaba.
"Eh! W-What do you mean!" Futaba felt embarrassed enough not joining when Makoto asked the first time but even worse not being accepted right now.
Kota knowing Makoto he knew what he was doing and was trying not to laugh.
"Someone already joined today. It's him, his name is Habiki Kiyoshi and is our final member so see ya."
Makoto then went to escort Futaba outside but he noticed that she appeared to be tearing up and it made Makoto snap out of his act.
"Hey Futaba-san are you crying?"
Futaba didn't respond and walked out.
"Wait Futaba-san I-I was just kidding! I w-wasn't being serious!" Makoto stopped her before taking another step.
Futaba stopped and clenched both her teeth and fists.
"You idiot what's wrong with you!" Futaba screamed at Makoto.
"I'm sorry I thought it would have been a funny joke. Anyways come on inside so we can have you officially join." Makoto said while getting nervous since he started to feel the stares of Aoki and Sakuri.
When Makoto turns around with Futaba he notices that Aoki is giving him a death stare for being mean and he sees that Sakuri is giving him a mean glare as well which stuns him.
'What the...Sakuri-san is actually mad at me?' Makoto said to himself.
"S-So everyone what do we think? D-Do we let Futaba-san join?" Makoto had an idea of what the response was going to be but he didn't know for sure.
"Of course!" Aoki yelled.
"Sure." Kota and Kiyoshi said.
"Club president?" Makoto asked for her opinion.
"Yes she can join you meanie."
Makoto took a step back dumbfounded that Sakuri just called him a meanie and even more in shock that she didn't stutter at all. Kota was laughing silently with his hand covering his mouth.
"O-Ok then Futaba-san welcome to the club."
Futaba this time put her hand out to shake. Makoto looked down to her hand and then turned to his side.
"Alright let's do some painting today what do you guys think?" Makoto spoke out to everyone.
Futaba got mad at being left hanging and looked at Makoto angry just standing there.
"Hahah...now you know how it feels huh?" Makoto joked.
All Futaba could do was just accept it and let it go since she did it twice to him.
Makoto put his left hand out and Futaba stared in doubt but went to shake it to confirm her joining to the club.
"Just so you know I didn't shake your hand because you had your right hand was out and with this new cast I couldn't."
Futaba forgot about his hand and felt embarrassed.
After some time everyone is now painting besides Makoto who is just watching. Makoto moves over to where Kota is.
"Wow that's a nice flower Kota."
"Thanks. You know I just noticed you have a new cast; so did you end up going to the hospital?" Kota was not informed by Makoto that he had it professionally checked on.
"Oh yeah I didn't get to tell you I forgot since we were so busy. I went yesterday after we ended club activities. It's a lot more comfortable now."
"So what's the problem with your hand?" Kota asked.
"The doctor said my index finger knuckle and middle finger got slightly fractured. It's going to take 3 weeks to heal; this sucks..." Makoto cried out at the end of his sentence
"That means you're not going to be able to do club activities."
"I know...but who knows maybe I'll try to do it with my left hand."
The Art Club continued to work on their paintings and showed it off to each other while Makoto watched jealous he was missing out on the fun.
'How hard is Kaneko's face? How hard did I punch him?' Makoto pondered to himself wondering how his hand got like this from one punch.
