to be red and yellow like a cloud

There might be tales out there about depressed boys discovering happiness through romance, basking in the light of their happy-go-lucky girl of choice, destroying trauma through love, but of course, he had to help the one nobody liked anymore.

He should've left after she asked about his underwear color. When she forced him to listen about her future best-selling dark fantasy manga (in her dreams). Even better: he should've just walked past her that day.

Then again...

I wrote this after 3-4 years of doing little to no writing, so to call it rusty would be an understatement (especially the first few chapters)
still, I'm really fond of it, so I'm rewriting from scratch with the same general plot bits and characters but like... not shit c: I'll probably repost the chapters instead of just edit because it's that much of a disaster
