A Starry Night Sky
I remember .... I remeber it was around Christmas when it happened when she told me , Those three word's.
I love you , I also remember our first meeting , That summer 5 year's ago I was only 11 years old When we met you were a cute shy little girl you were hiding behind your mom's back , glancing over when our families were greeting each other when you guy's moved next door , I immediately thought how cute you were , I smiled at you and you just blushed hiding behind your mom right Sagiri ....!
Mahiro: Hi I'm okazaki Mahiro , it's nice to meet you ! Sagiri: kotegawa Sagiri , likewise.
I remember when we started to hang out with each other it's when my friend asagi came over to studie together ,
Me and asagi were studying math at that moment eating pockys and melon soda.
Mahiro: Hey asagi can you help me out with this one ? Asagi: Again geeze your hopeless (Giggle) .
Mahiro: Well math isn't my best subject plus were helping each other out right ?
Asagi: Yeah except I'm helping you more than you helping me !
As she taught me what to do ! She looked out the window waiting for me to finish ....
Asagi: Hey who's that girl ?
Mahiro: ( Mahiro look's up)Girl what girl ?
I looked out the window and there she was playing by herself ?
Asagi: Is she your new neighbor ?
Mahiro: Oh yeah she moved in the other day.
Asagi: She looks pretty lonely.
Mahiro: Huh oh I guess she does huh ,
(My parent's were always working my mom worked in a bakery all day and my dad worked over sea's so I was basically the same ! Luckly my mom taught me how to cook , I was used to being home alone ! I guess we were in the same position.....
The next morning i thought I should go talk to her , I saw her playing in the back yard making a sand castle.
Mahiro: hey !?
Sagiri immediately jumped up I guess I scared her a bit she turned and looked at me , then she hid behind a tree peeking over at me !
Sagiri: What do you want...?
Mahiro: Um I just thought you know maybe you wanted to play together ?
Sagiri: Huh ? Mahiro-Um well it's just you know you looked like you were lonely.... (It was kind of awkward at first I didn't know how to talk to her but I didn't just want to leave her alone she was such a shy girl.)
Mahiro: Um don't you...have friends ?
She looked at me silently than she looked sadly down.
Mahiro: You know friends you can play or hang out with ?
Every time sagiri talks she stutters a little ?
Sagiri: Um not really I don't...really..have friends...
Mahiro: Huh don't tell me you're being bullied !
Sagiri: No ! Its not like that ! I just...don't know how to talk...to anyone really...?
Mahiro: I see....than how about it then just play with me until than okay ?
Sagiri puts her hand to her chest slightly looking away like she wants to say something ? Sagiri: I...just um ....
Mahiro: Oh hey I like your castle it looks nice. Sagiri: Cast...castle ? You mean this it's a house for me and my future prince !
Mahiro: Oh i see ( wouldn't castle be better I thought to myself !) Mahiro:Well than how about I help you with it for now I can be your prince for now how's that ?
Sagiri immediately blushed .
Sagiri: Huh ! Wha..what are you talking about ! Mahiro: Huh was it that strange ?
Sagiri: No....it's...fine...really um Okay I guess ?
Mahiro: Come on...lets just play together okay !
Sagiri: I..i don't know...how to play with others ?
She looked away as she said it with eyes of slight saddness , I grabbed her hand looking at her with confidence !
Mahiro: Come on than let's play and hang out ok ? That way you can learn how to talk and play with others !
She looked at me for moment and than nodded her head up and down ...
Than a year past and as it past you got used to being around me , When you saw me you would yell my name and hug me with excitement !
You come over and do your homework or even come for dinner , you and I would be together almost all the time !
You would be with there when asagi and me where studying , she seem to like you and have fun with you but I notice you where more awkward around her like you didn't like having her around me ? But same can be said about asagi , you also tried to keep my attention it's funny thinking about it !
You would even try to sit next to me and lean on me , Mahiro: Hey you don't have to lean on me. ( I laughed)
Sagiri: I'm just a little tired !
Asagi : hey you don't have to lean so close to him , Mahiro won't you get her off ?
Mahiro: Hm ?( i tilted my head ) What for ?
Asagi immediately puffed her cheeks looking mad ? Asagi: (turns her head ) hm!
but you didn't stop being friendly to each other you were always kind to each other , but had moments little did I know why yet !
You always had fun with me and my mom was happy you were with me all the time , she must have known I felt lonely most of the time ?
Mom: Ah you're here again sagiri ?(she saids with a smile) it was summer break we were just watching tv and trying to cool off from the hot wheater and listening to the cicadas !
Sagiri: Yeah I just came to do some summer homework and Mahiro said I can come to eat with you !
Mom: well I'm glad your here , your always welcome in our house !
Sagiri: Thank you !
And more time you would spend with me we even went on a beach trip together we spend time splashing in the water , finding seashells and eating watermelon !
As time went on I had more fun with you and my friends , my dad and your dad finally came home around the same time and our parents got to know each other and we played with sparklers in the backyard !
Sagiri: I can't wait till we go see the firework festival !
Mahiro: Yeah but I'll have to go with my friends for the first part but I promise to meet up with you later okay ?
Sagiri: Okay (you said it with a bit of sadness ?)
At the festival I met with my friends!
Mahiro: hey you guys sorry I'm late !
Kaede: Come on man what took you so long ?
Asagi: Come on I want to get cotton candy !
Haruka: I want shaved ice.
Yu: lets just go okay ?
Mahiro: sorry I was getting my yukata put on !
Asagi: Well lets just go have fun now !
Everyone: Yeah !!!
We went to each stall and played games even though everyone ate I waited till I me with you , yu won a gold fish and haruka got a plush dog and kaede ate takoyaki ! And asagi wanted to go to a shooting stall she pointed and a cut cat plushie.
Asagi: Hey Mahiro can you win that for me ?
Mahiro: Sure why not. (I grabbed the toy rifle and aimed at its head , I shot it and it fell !)
Stall owner- Congratulations you won a neko plushie !
He handed me the plush and I have to you.
Mahiro: Here you go !
(Asagi blushes ! And saids in a shy voice)
Asagi: Thank you Mahiro !
Mahiro: No problem.
Haruka: Hey guys the fireworks will start in half an hour !
Kaede: Come on lets go find a good spot !
I thought back to sagiri.
Mahiro : Sorry guys I got to go meet someone real quick ill make it up to you guys later promise !
Asagi : Hey Mahiro wait !
Yu : Who does he have to meet ?
Everyone looked confused .
I ran back home and you were waiting inside your home with your mom.
I walked inside and you smiled !
Sagiri : Mahiro(you huged me)
Mahiro : sorry for the wait !
Sagiri : How's my yukata ?
Mahiro : Yeah it looks cute on you ! (I smiled)
Sagiri's mom : Take care
We made our way to the festival listening to the music and smell of food being grilled around us !
Mahiro : Hey what do you want to eat ?
Sagiri : Maybe a strawberry crepe !
We went to best looking crepe stall.
Mahiro : Excuse me one strawberry and cream crepe and one choco banana crepe please !
Crepe vender : coming right up !
(We ate the crepes and enjoyed the festival and again I played a shooting range stall to win a prize!)
Stall owner : I see you brought your little sister this time here's you prize !
I got you a flower hair pin.
Mahiro : Here I got this for you !
Sagiri : Thank you ! (You smiled very big when I gave it to you.)
Mahiro : it's funny how he thought you were my little sister I guess you are like one !
Sagiri : I don't want that... (You quietly mumbled )
Mahiro : Huh ?
Sagiri- It's nothing really!
The fireworks finally began and we watched them on top of the shrine.
Sagiri : Wow so pretty !
Mahiro : Yeah very pretty !
Sagiri : Hey let's always go together okay ?
Mahiro : Sure !
We watched the fireworks reach all the way to the starry night sky !
Than time pasted It was almost new years !
As the new school term came Sagiri made new friends but despite that she wanted to spend time with me more , she introduced her friends to me
Ai misawa , miyu ayanami and tomoka kakizono.
Miyu : I'm ayanami miyu , its nice to meet you !
Ai : I'm misawa Ai , nice to meet you !
Tomoka : kakizono tomoka nice to meet you !
They all greeted me.
Haru : I'm haru okazaki I'm Sagiri's next door neighbor , nice to meet you all !
Ai : Oh we all know about you.
Tomoka : Yeah that's right sagiri-san is always talking about you !
Miyu: Yeah she always saids about how great you are !
Sagiri completely blushed at that moment.
Sagiri- You guys st..op it , you don't need to say that come on !
I laughed saying it's okay , though I didn't understand at that time either , man just how dense was I ?
Mahiro: I'll get started on cooking okay you guys just wait till than okay !
They all said okay.
I notice sagiri was whispering to them all while looking at me , I didn't think much of it , but you looked at me with such happiness ! They all looked at me smiling.
Mahiro: Hey it's done !
They came over to the kitchen.
Ai: Whoa you made hot pot !
Tomoka: it's so good !
Sagiri: Its delious.
Mahiro: I'm glad you guys like it , what's wrong Miyu ?
Miyu: I can't get the tofu .
Mahiro: Oh I'll get it for you !
Tomoka: Oh don't worry I get it in stead ,you should focus on sagiri instead !
Sagiri: Tomoka-San !!!
Mahiro: It's okay , here what do you want ?
Sagiri: I also want to..fu !
She quietly said.
Mahiro: I also want tofu !
Mahiro: Alright here you go !
I she put her bowl up , as I put the tofu.
Sagiri: Thank you.
Mahiro: No problem.
I smiled at her !
Mahiro: Hey what are you guys going to do for new years ?
Tomoka: we're all busy on the morning , but we want to go make wishes on a ema later on !
Ai: Yeah but sagiri wants to go write one early in the morning , why don't you go with her !
Sagiri: Hey you guys !
Mahiro: I don't mind.
Ai: Than its settled mahiro onii-chan will go with you !
Miyu: isn't that great sagiri ?
She smiled at her.
We all ate and talked , till it was time for them to go home.
New years day , it was finally here !
I woke up at 5:30AM to get ready to meet sagiri to take her.
Mahiro: Morning sagiri are you ready ?
Sagiri: yes , good morning !
She smiled while blushing.
She was wearing a kimono !
Mahiro: Your kimono look it looks cute on you !
Sagiri immediately blushes !
Sagiri: Thank you...
I laughed .
Mahiro: let's get going okay ?
We talked about the new school terms and the things we should do before school starts again , as we walked to the shrine.
Sagiri: What's wrong ?
Mahiro: I'm just thinking of what to write , what are you gonna write ?
Sagiri opened her eyes and blushed , looking away holding the ema near her mouth !
Sagiri: it's a secret !
I looked at her realizing what to write.
We hanged the ema's up and walked
Sagiri: Hey are you going with your friends later ?
Mahiro: We actually went last night , we all went to make wishes too , and to have fun togheter.
Sagiri: I see !
Mahiro: But I'm glad I got to go with you just now , let's have fun again this year !
Sagiri blushed and smiled !
Sagiri : yeah !
And a few years passed I'm now a second year in high school , I'm also 16 years old now and you were now 11 !
It was also this year where it all began , I would've never imagined all the events that will happen the the things I would discover , who would have thought one love confession would bring so much random events but thinking back it was almost like something out of a story !
But I guess it is , this is our story right sagiri !
