Chapter 2:

Trial 1.5: Picky Cards

Hopeless Romangatic

In class I'm daydreaming as usual. That is until... She comes over and slams my desk. Making all my dreams fall out of my mind.



She has a glint in her eye preparing to do something. As for what that is... I'm not sure.

"Let's play old maid!"

"Well I was going to uhhh...."

Before I get to make an excuse she tears up. I didn't even make the excuse yet!

"Alright, Alright!"


She wipes her eyes. Pulling out some cards handing them to me, and giving some to herself. She's doing something, but I don't know the word for it...

We play for quite a bit. Whenever she tries picking a card from me she has a look of pure confusion because I keep a straight face and barely talk. When I have to take a turn...

We're down to two cards. I point to the card on the left.


She tears up again.

I point to the card on the right.


Her emotions jarringly switch from sad to an arrogant look accompanied by a laugh. I keep moving my finger back and forth. She keeps switching along with my finger.


I sigh knowing exactly what's about to happen. I'm supposed to lose or she cries and I still lose? What a deal this was. I knew I singed up, but did I really even have a choice in the matter to begin with?!

I pick the wrong card. She wins.

"Ohohohohohoho!~ I knew you could never beat me!"

"Yea, I never knew you were so good..."

I drop to my knees going along with her act.

My friends decide to weigh in on the situation. Eva snickers.

"Looks like after a hard match, our loser is... Still a loser! Who would've guessed?"

Aron stares at me, understanding my pain.

"Don't worry Yu, you'll win someday... I hope."

(Hey all, Bert here! Starting from now on I'll be making a chapter every Monday and short every Friday! I wonder what the future has in store for them because I sure as hell don't know!)
