Akira runs a hand through her hair, then nods. "Yeah, I'd really like that."

Permalink

"And if you could fit me in somewhere, that'd be nice too, but I want you to have a chance to get to know Shiho better first."

Permalink

"Alright."

Akira looks back at Shiho. "Anywhere in mind you'd like to go?"

Permalink

Shiho smiles softly. "If we go somewhere informal, they won't mind if we listen to the music we're recommending while we eat. I know a good dumpling place off Station Square, we could sit outside and people-watch while we listen and eat?"

Permalink

"Sounds lovely! Count me in." Akira smiles wide.

Permalink

Shiho grins wider, still blushing, and squeezes Akira's hand. "Thanks! When do you wanna go? Something tells me volleyball practice will be cancelled for a few weeks at least, so my afternoons are free. Or we could wait for next weekend? Up to you."

Permalink

"Let's try for tomorrow afternoon. I don't want to waste time when it comes to spending time with you." 

Permalink

Shiho blushes brighter and looks down, smiling and wiggling in place. "Same."

Permalink

Ann just watches and smiles, her eyes faraway. 

Permalink

"You look thoughtful. What are you thinking?"

Permalink

"It's just really nice to see two people I care about enjoying their time together, that's all. I guess I was just... turning that over in my head a bit."

Permalink

Shiho nods. "Yeah, I felt the same seeing Akira and Ryuji's messages earlier this morning. I think it's called compersion?"

Permalink

"Whatever it is, it's wonderful. It's just..." She looks over at Ann and Shiho. "If you two weren't holding hands in front of me and kissing and โ€” enjoying each other's company โ€” then I wouldn't feel right dating either of you. You deserve each other."

Permalink

"Yeah, and that's kind of how I feel about you and Ryuji too."

Permalink

Shiho just squeezes Ann and Akira's hands with a happy sigh. 

Permalink

After a moment, she grins playfully at Ann. "So, are you going to claim some of this cutie's time too?"

Permalink

"Yeah, definitely. We've talked enough about Dissidia: I think it's time we actually played some." Ann smiles and looks over at Akira. "What do you say?"

Permalink

"Sure," Akira says. "But I'm not sure that's super datelike?"

Permalink

"Hmmm. We could go drop by one of the good candy shops I know for treats beforehand?"

She blinks. "By the way, did you actually get that convenience-store stuff? I totally forgot to ask about it when I saw you last."

Permalink

"Oh yeah!" Akira laughs. "I totally forgot because of everything. It's all still in my pack, hopefully not too crushed..." 

She slings off her pack and starts digging through it. "You had the gummies, Ann, and Ryuji had the Baby Star, and I got gummies for myself, so that meannnnns..." 

Akira pulls out a slightly squashed package of popcorn. "This must be yours, Shiho." 

Permalink

Shiho happily takes the bag. "Thanks! Love these."

Permalink

Akira passes Ann her package of gummies as well. "I think I'll save mine for now."

Permalink

"Thanks, Akira." Ann takes her package of gummies and sets it on the table in front of her. "There's your gift for Ryuji, huh?" She smirks. 

Permalink

"I guess so, yeah." Akira rubs the back of her head and giggles.

Permalink

"See? I know it's easy to worry, but you'll be fine."
