Why Is This Girl So Shy Around Me?!
Sakuri's fever has gone away and she is able to go to school again. As she arrives at the classroom Makoto is walking behind her.
"Sakuri-san you were able to make it to school today I see. Are you feeling better?" Makoto asked.
"Y-Yes." Sakuri quickly went to sit down in her seat.
Makoto is left confused but goes to sit down. Sakuri buries her head in her arms to hid her blushing. She remembered what happened when Futaba came to visit her and how she confessed her love for Makoto, but she did not remember it was Futaba who came so she is left thinking who it could have been.
'D-Did I actually s-say that. But to w-who?" Sakuri thought to herself.
She started to think of all the possible choices.
'Kiyoshi-san is out of the question since he is barely a new friend. Nakahara-san? No he wouldn't go not by choice. Aoki-san is a possibility but she has to work. I don't think Futaba-san would want to visit at all. All that leaves is Haku-san...'
Sakuri's head explodes with steam coming out from how red she is turning.
'C-Could it b-be? H-Haku-san is a really caring person toward me so it can be possible. Ah! I-Is it possible that I r-really said that in front of him?' Sakuri continued to ponder the possibilities of who it could of been in her room.
Sakuri could not pay attention at all during class. Makoto walks up to her to check on her.
"Hey Sakuri-san are you doing okay? I kept seeing you struggle and hold your head." Makoto asked.
"Uh...yes I-I'm fine." Sakuri said but not being able to make eye contact with Makoto.
"If you say so. Anyways the club is going to meet at the club room and eat lunch there. Do you want to come?"
Everyone makes it to the club room and start to eat.
"Where is Futaba-san?" Makoto asked.
"She didn't want to come." Aoki replied back.
"It looks like she still isn't comfortable around us."
Sakuri is fidgeting around and blushing sitting next to Makoto. Makoto notices this and looks over at Sakuri's direction.
"Hey Sakuri-san are you sure you're feeling okay? Your face is really red. I hope you still don't have a fever." Makoto said worried.
Makoto puts his hand on her forehead and is super close to her face. Sakuri's face becomes a deeper shade of red and she starts to make a nervous face.
"Woah your face is really starting to get red." Makoto said with surprise.
From how close Makoto's face is to Sakuri she can't stay still so she gets up and quickly runs away leaving Makoto confused. Sakuri makes it to the roof floor and sees Futaba standing looking up at the sky. She notices that she looks sad and has some tears coming out. Futaba looks over at the door and sees Sakuri. She wipes her tears away.
"H-Hey Sakuri-san what are you doing up here?"
"I-I just wanted to come up here." Sakuri walks up next to Futaba.
"I get what you mean. It really is a nice view up here."
Sakuri stares at her as she is talking and notices that she looks really sad.
"Futaba-san are you doing okay?" Sakuri asked.
"Sakuri-san I think you should just confess to Haku-san. I'm sure he feels the same way."
"Eehh! W-What a-are you saying!" Sakuri yelled while blushing.
"Don't hide it. You told me when I went to take care of you at your house."
Sakuri is shocked and not able to talk back. She now remembered everything from that day. Futaba puts her hands on Sakuri's shoulders.
"You got this Sakuri-san. You can do it." Futaba then gave a smile but it had a sad tone to it.
Futaba heads back to her classroom and Sakuri stays still thinking of what Futaba has just told her. As Futaba is walking down the stairs she stops and starts to cry sitting down on the staircase.
'It's for the best.' Futaba thought to herself.
