Speaking of the devil.'God... Do you really hate me that much...?' You walked slowly to the door and opened it slightly. Of course, you were hiding behind it.
"__? is Al not home?" he surprisingly talked to you calmly as if nothing happened between you two.
"Can you give this to him? He said he'll borrow it." He handed you a headphone.
"Thanks." he said and left. His face wasn't happy when he talked to you. Was he mad? finally ran out of patience because of you? Where did his gentleman side go?
The time you shut the door, you screamed. You thought you were the dumbest person alive.
"Brother... Go home now please...?" What your brother said was really true. Pretending brave but ending up crying and begging for help.
He was currently chatting with his classmate, Kiku Honda in this Japanese living room. Arthur stopped over his house to stay a little bit because he couldn't calm down.
"So? Are you asking me to arrange the things up?" Kiku said.
"No, I just wanted to ask HOW can I do this right. I talked to her earlier but..."
"I don't know, if I apologize to her right now. Wouldn't it be too awkward like... We are now... Uhh... Acting like idiots? Laughing awkwardly, talking about nonsense things and laugh for a second then silent."
"I don't understand you."
"Like, After I apologize... We'll... Oh forget it..."
"Who started the fight?"
"Then why are you apologizing to her?"
"I can't stand not talking to her!!! And if I wait for her to apologize to me, I'm sure it'll take a long time!"
"Do you... Like her?"
"Like I said, do you like her?"
"Well... Uhh... We can't say that for now."
"Not sure about my feelings? Oh come on. I feel like a pedo getting turned on for a girl who's younger than me."
"Worrying about age gap?"
"Exactly. It's impossible to wait for her to age like me right?"
"Age doesn't matter"
"You think so?" he laid down with his hands under his head.
"It's only 1 year gap, I don't see any problem." Kiku said, started playing with Pochi-Kun.
"But what more troubles me is the girl I like is my bestfriend's sibling."
"As long as it's you, Alfred-san won't complain about it."
"You serious? You must be new here. That guy will punch a man flying just the man-or-who-so-ever laid a finger on __."
"You're different. Think about the opposite. He might be go root for you. By the way, why don't you take her to the dance party?"
"You mean the promenade?"
"Maybe I'll use that, thanks." 'Don't worry, I'll get rid of these feelings right away.'
Arthur went home after that. At least, talking to his Japanese friend helped to ease himself. 'Am I just mistaking her for someone...? I'll be the happiest person alive if that little girl is really __...' he thought as he stopped and looked up to the sky. 'I still remember that the girl who I used to play with cried hard when she saw me in the van, ready to leave. Got tripped, chasing me, hoping she can catch up. I wonder where is she now? Is she doing well? And if I got to see her again... I want to ask her, 'How are you?' 'Don't you know I really missed you?' 'Don't you know how much depressing when I don't get the chance to see you?' and especially this time, I can able to say 'I love you'
