凉风 #137 三人 さんにん
Yamato woke up at 6.30am and whinned that he basically didnt sleep. He woke up and opened the window, told himself that he's dating Suzuka again. There's only 5 days left of the summer holiday and he had to practise hard for the upcoming track selection competition. He opened his door and was shocked to see Suzuka outside. Suzuka greeted him and Yamato replied her greeting. She commented that Yamato's hair was messy. He asked Suzuka if she had a good sleep. She replied yes without much expression. Yamato wondered why she was acting cold. Yamato asked Suzuka if she's free after the track practice. He wanted to invite Suzuka out for lunch. Suzuka agreed with slight smile and Yamato was relieved that she smiled. He told her that he would wait for her then. Yamato told himself that it was when they were dating that he couldn't grasp her thoughts.
After the practice, Yamato approached Suzuka but he was interrupted by Miki who came to visit Suzuka. Suzuka was very happy to see Miki while Miki pushed Yamato aside. Suzuka mentioned that she called several times after she returned but nobody answered the phone and she was worried. Miki explained that she forgot to bring her handphone back to her hometown. Miki looked at Suzuka and Yamato, she was bit surprised to see Yamato and Suzuka were in good term (Miki yet knew they were dating again). She was wondering if they didn't mind each other after the break-up. Miki asked Yamato and Suzuka out for lunch since Suzuka and Yamato were on good term.
At CASA restaurant, Suzuka and Miki talked about the menu. Yamato was bit uneasy and complained (in thoughts) that Miki had to appear that day. Yamato remarked that the two girls could chat well that they could even chat about pudding and cake. Miki then told Yamato that she had developed the photos that they took at the beach. She said that she would show him next time. Suzuka asked Yamato if he went to the beach. Yamato replied that there's others as well, like Yasonobu, Miho, Kobayakawa and Tsuyoshi. Miki then added there's Honoka as well and Yamato was stunned. Miki said that she remembered Honoka even applied for leave. Yamato acted surprised and said it could be. Miki then commented that Yamato invited her. Yamato was panic. Suzuka asked Miki if they had fun. Miki replied that Yamato had a lot of fun but Yamato denied. Miki then told Suzuka that they could have gone together if she return earlier. Yamato was worried because of all the things Miki had said.
On the way home, Yamato was worried that Suzuka could be angry for inviting his former girlfriend to the beach. Suzuka suddenly told Yamato that she wanted to go to the beach as well. Yamato apologized and Suzuka asked him why. He answered that he went without her. Suzuka told him not to worry or felt guilty. She then, with a smile, told Yamato that they should go next year, just the two of them. Happily, she asked Yamato to promise her. In his thought, Yamato reprimand himself that Suzuka was thinking about the future while he was worried about unnecessary things. He told himself that the important thing was he's dating Suzuka now and he wanted to be with Suzuka next year, the following year and years on. Yamato called Suzuka and held her hand. They walked back hand-in-hand.
P/S: With Kouji saying that there's more story to tell. I'm bit worried that he might pull the trick that Yamato didnt make it to Seijou.
