Chapter 3: The Hot and the Cold
"So now I'm going to be a member of the Photography Club huh. I wonder if I will be able to get along with them," Kuromi mutters as she walks her way to their classroom. Her eyes are looking somewhere far away and her mind seems to be flying somewhere. Suddenly, sweat starts dripping from her face. CRAP! THIS IS BAD! I'M GETTING NERVOUS! Why? WHY? Was it because there are a lot of guys in that club? Ughhh I'm not used talking with guys. What should I do? Her face turned red, feeling embarrassed. I'll just go and meet them later yet why am I getting nervous? It's not like they'll do something to me or anything…. Kuromi stopped for a while and started scratching her head out of frustration. This is her first time going to get close with a lot of guys that's why she is in panic.
Arisa soon came and met Kuromi, "Good morning Kuromi!" she greeted her best friend, tapping Kuromi's shoulder. Kuromi turned around to Arisa and greeted her with a stressed face that slightly shocked Arisa, "Uhhh…. Good morning Arisa…"
"Woah! What's wrong with you Kuromi? You look much stressed this early in the morning. Is something bothering you?" Arisa asked, showing her concern for her best friend. She looked at Kuromi closer to check what's wrong with her best friend.
"Uhhh nothing. I'm just thinking too much," Kuromi said, fixing her hair with her hand. Arisa moved her head away from Kuromi. Getting lost on what Kuromi said, she asked, "Uhhh thinking of what?"
"W-well…. Uhmmm…. You see…. I'm about to join your club right?" Kuromi's face again turned red out of embarrassment.
"Well yes you are. I already have your membership form here so all you need to do is write down here," Arisa showed the paper to Kuromi which surprised Kuromi more, "What?! You already have the form?!"
"Yes. What of it?" Arisa still have no idea of what Kuromi is getting concerned of. Kuromi just stared at her friend like she was some kind of an idiot. Arisa why don't you get it?! Kuromi sighed. Arisa still doesn't get her, "So Kuromi, what's wrong?"
"Uhhmm.. Arisa. L-later I-I'm going to see those guys, right?" Kuromi starts shaking while talking to Arisa. Arisa answered her quickly, "Yes. What about it?" Arisa scratched her head, getting confused on all the questions Kuromi is throwing. She moved her head again nearer to Kuromi, gazing at her. Kuromi moved her head backwards then turned it away to avoid Arisa's gaze.
"Kuromi," Arisa called on her friend which gave chills to Kuromi. Kuromi slowly looked back at Arisa, "Y-yes?" sweat starts to fall again from her face.
"Are you afraid of guys?" Arisa straightly asked Kuromi. Kuromi, after hearing Arisa's question, was completely shocked and wasn't able to answer quickly.
"W-W-W-WHAT MADE YOU THINK THAT?! O-O-OF COURSE I'M NOT AFRAID OF THEM! W-W-WHY WOULD I?" Kuromi shouted with her voice shaking and pointing her shaking finger to Arisa. Arisa just sighed, "Kuromi. Stop denying. It's obvious. I understand."
After hearing what Arisa said, Kuromi suddenly stopped shaking and just stared at her best friend without any reaction. Then all of a sudden, Kuromi ran onto Arisa and held onto her, "ARISA-CHAN! YOU REALLY ARE MY BEST FRIEND!" she sobbed.
Arisa placed her hand on Kuromi's head, "There, there. No need to worry. I'll be here to help you so don't think of anything that will make you nervous, okay?" Kuromi looked at her with teary and serious eyes while still holding onto Arisa's uniform, "Really?" she said. Arisa continued to calm Kuromi down, "Of course it will be fine! I won't put you in danger and I assure you that everything is going to be good so calm down now and just trust me, okay?" hearing her best friend's words, Kuromi was able to calm down. She got off holding on Arisa's uniform, "Thank you Arisa. You really are my best friend."
Arisa was glad that Kuromi already calmed down, "Ahh good grief. Well then, shall we go to our class now?" she said to Kuromi and they continued to walk to their classroom.
Class hours passed quickly until it's lunch time and as always Kuromi and Arisa would eat together their packed lunch while chatting. They always do this since their middle school.
"Oh yeah Kuromi! Your big sister's cooking is really good!" Arisa exclaimed after tasting Kuromi's lunch. Kuromi was happy hearing her friend's compliment, "Thanks. My sis will be glad to hear that."
"You're right! Sometimes I would want her to make lunch for me. Oh god! This is really good!" Arisa continued to grab more food from Kuromi's lunch. Kuromi just smiled. Seeing her friend like this makes her happy already.
"Oh by the way Arisa," Kuromi took a piece of paper from her notebook. It was the application form for her to join the Photography Club, "here. I finished filling it up during class."
"OHHH! Nice Kuromi!" Arisa took the paper from Kuromi's hand and put it inside her folder, "With this, you are now an official member of the Photography Club. I, Kusunoki Arisa, president of the Photography Club, welcome our new member Karasawa Kuromi!" Arisa gave her hand to Kuromi, asking for a handshake while smiling. Kuromi gladly accepted and made a handshake with her best friend, "Ahh yes. I'm looking forward to working with you as well as with the other members."
After doing the handshake, Arisa and Kuromi continued with their lunch. Arisa reminded Kuromi on something, "Later I will go to the student council and give it an approval. You already know where our club is located right?"
"End of the fourth floor right? Yeah I still remember the place," Kuromi answered. Well after what happened, it's impossible for me to forget that.
"Good then because I may not be able to accompany you there so can you just go on your own for now? Besides getting your approval, there are still things that I need to finish at the council. Don't worry. I'll go to the club quickly once I finished the things I need to do at the council. But still I'm kind of worried," Arisa explained.
"It's fine. I can go there on my own. No need to worry. Just do your council works first," Kuromi said, giving Arisa a smile to remove her worries.
Arisa is still worried, "Are you sure? Last time you were chased up to that floor so I'm already afraid you might get chased again," then all of sudden, an idea struck on her, "Ah I know! I'll go ask one of the members to escort you there!"
Kuromi was surprised to hear Arisa's idea, "Eh? You don't have to do that! It's fine! I can go on my own!"
But Arisa didn't accept her refusal, "Ah no, no. I can't let that incident happen again. Don't worry. I'll send the nicest guy in the club so you will be fine. Its better that we're sure of your safety and they made a deal with you right?" Kuromi then remembered the deal that the guys offered her. We'll let you hide here as much as you want if and only if you will join in our club. "Oh yeah that deal. So they're serious about that huh. But they only said that they will let me hide there," Kuromi wondered.
Arisa put her hand on Kuromi's right shoulder, giving her a serious look, "Kuromi. Stop being pessimistic and just trust them. They are serious about their words. I'm sure of it! That's the kind of people they are. They won't be a member of my club if they're just a bunch of asses."
Kuromi smiled and the doubt she is feeling disappeared, "Alright then. If that's what you said then I'll trust you."
"Good! That's really very nice of you Kuromi! Well then let's go finish our lunch!" Arisa then finished her lunch quickly. Kuromi just looked at her smiling, "You might not be able to digest what you're eating properly if you eat quickly without chewing it."
Lunch time ended and afternoon class started.
Soon afternoon class ended and everyone starts to prepare to go out of their classrooms. Arisa quickly packed her things and went to Kuromi to give a few reminders.
"So Kuromi I'll be heading out first. I need to finish the council works quickly as well as your approval so just wait for the guy that will escort you okay? I sent him a message already a while ago so he's probably on his way here now. Well then see you later!" Arisa dashed out of the classroom, leaving Kuromi who is just sitting on her chair while waving at her friend.
"Now then. I should wait for the guy that will escort me," Kuromi remained seated as she waits for the guy. Hhmm I wonder who is it? I kind of remember their faces but of course I can't recognize them easily. Arisa said he was the nicest guy on the club. I wonder if that is true.
Meanwhile in the hallway, the girls are all staring and getting all attracted to the guy walking down. Some are talking about him while others are just blushing and staring at the guy, falling all over him.
"Hey, hey! Isn't that Maruyama-kun? Kyaa he's so handsome!"
"But I heard he already has a girlfriend?"
"Really? Isn't that just a rumor? I don't think he would easily go out with any girl in our school."
"But they said he was dating someone though no one actually had a proof of it."
"Those are just nonsense rumors!"
"I'm glad that he walked here! I'm so lucky!"
The guy walking down the hallway is the Photography Club's vice president, Maruyama Takumi. He is the black-haired calm guy that peeked outside their clubroom to see and count the number of delinquents waiting during the chase incident. His face is painted with calmness and his smile adds to his good looks. He has blue eyes that even show calmness and he has a slightly messy hair that ends up to his ears. He has an average body build for a normal high school student and has a height that is about 173 cm. He is the guy that Arisa asked to escort Kuromi on her way to the clubroom. As he passed by the hallway, some girls are squealing just seeing him. Because of his looks, he is a popular guy in Redpine and most girls admire him.
Ahhh they're looking at me again. I wonder why? Maybe there's something wrong with my face? Haha oh well whatever. He thought to himself as he continued to walk to 4-A's classroom. Soon he reached the classroom. He stood at the entrance and the remaining students were surprised on his appearance at their classroom.
"Ahh hello! Is Karasawa-san here?" Takumi asked which gave more shock to the other students, especially the female students. They start whispering and talking about Takumi's reason for looking for Kuromi. Kuromi saw him and heard him called her. Oh that's him. Yeah I remember him! He's one of those guys! Hhhmm he looks like a nice guy to me. I guess I will be fine. Kuromi stood up, grabbed her bag and started to walk towards Takumi while her classmates are looking at her. More whispers and chatter started, talking about why Kuromi knows Takumi.
"Hey, hey! They know each other?"
"So Karasawa-san is Maruyama-kun's girlfriend huh. Now we don't have a chance."
HEY I CAN HEAR YOU! I'M NOT HIS GIRLFRIEND! DON'T START MAKING STORIES! Kuromi gets irritated, hearing the chatters around. She then stopped in front of Takumi who is waiting for her.
"Hello Karasawa-san! I'm the one that Arisa asked to escort you to our club. Oh by the way I'm Maruyama Takumi. Just call me by my first name."
"ESCORT?!" the students exclaimed. The chatters grew larger which pissed Kuromi more.
Despite the awkward atmosphere, Takumi don't have any idea on what is happening. Damn this is awkward! I knew it! I should have just walked to the clubroom by myself! And this guy! He doesn't get what is happening? Is he an idiot? Kuromi thought to herself.
Then suddenly, Takumi said something to other students, "Ah wait, wait. Don't get the wrong idea. We're not dating or anything. She's a member of our club so I'm just here to go pick her up." everyone was shocked at what he said including Kuromi. HE SAID IT WITHOUT THINKING! Takumi is still calm despite the situation.
"U-umm… M-Maruyama-kun how about we go now." Kuromi asked Takumi though she's kind of nervous talking with him. She doesn't want to cause any more misunderstanding.
"Oh okay. Let's go then." Takumi quickly agreed and they started walking outside, going to their clubroom. As they walk in the hallway, lots of students are looking at them.
"Hey look at that! It's two of the famous students here in Redpine: Maruyama Takumi of Class 4-B and Karasawa Kuromi of Class 4-A!"
"So the rumors were true? Maruyama-kun really has a girlfriend and it's the prettiest girl in the campus!"
"Since when did they start dating?"
"Well they're a nice couple. Ahhh we do not have a chance anymore."
NO! NO! NOOOOO! WE'RE NOT DATING! DAMN IT! THIS IS SO AWKWARD! Kuromi continued to walk with her head down out of embarrassment while Takumi just kept on walking without any worries.
"Karasawa-san, you okay?" Takumi asked Kuromi after noticing her behavior, "Is this atmosphere too much for you?" He actually gets the current situation.
"Uhhh… y-yeah…. T-this is kind of weird f-for me…," Kuromi answered with shaking voice. She's totally pressured, seeing that he's walking with a famous guy in front of a lot of people and talking with him at the same time. This is very hard for her, "Uhhh… c-can we walk faster? T-this place i-is pressuring me already!"
"Is that so?" Takumi just looked at Kuromi who is so embarrassed at the moment. He suddenly stopped from walking. Kuromi stopped too after noticing him.
"Everyone! Listen to me!" Takumi called the attention of the students surrounding the hallway, "This girl is a member of our club that's why I'm here to accompany her to our clubroom! Don't misunderstand. She's not my girlfriend!" Takumi said to all the students while he points his index finger to Kuromi which shocked Kuromi once again. HE SAID IT AGAIN WITHOUT THINKING! THIS GUY IS AN IDIOT!
The whole crowd was covered with silence. Everyone was shocked at the revelation that Takumi said though Takumi doesn't seem to care. This guy is unbelievable! How come he can still have that calmed face and smile after saying that? Kuromi thought to herself. Takumi then looked back at Kuromi, "Shall we move one? They're probably waiting now," and then they continued to walk.
As Takumi and Kuromi walk to reach the fourth floor, the number of students kept on decreasing until they reach the last floor of their building where there are no students at all.
"Wow. This is weird. There are no students here?" Kuromi wondered while looking around.
"Well, most of the clubs are located here so most of the students are probably inside their own clubs doing their own activities. This place is like a small country. There are a lot of clubs in this floor and there are a lot of different persons here. Next time we will go tour you around this floor to know the clubs that are located here," Takumi explained to Kuromi. Kuromi just looked at him, listening to his explanation.
This guy seems to be nice after all and that attitude he had a while ago is quite cool. He's brave to tell those things straight forward. I guess Arisa was right that he was the nicest of them all. Maybe the other guys of the club are like him. Kuromi thought, making a happy face. They continued to walk their way to their clubroom when suddenly….
"KARASAWA-SAN! I LOVE YOU! PLEASE GO OUT WITH ME!" a voice of a guy confessing to Kuromi echoed in the hallway! Kuromi heard the voice which gave her chills and she started to look around to see who it was but there's no one around the hallway except Takumi who is beside her. Then suddenly the voice disappeared.
"Karasawa-san? What's wrong?" Takumi asked, showing his concern over Kuromi. Kuromi turned to Takumi to answer, "Ahh no its nothing. I just heard someone confessing to me again but I don't know who was it then the voice was gone. You didn't hear it?"
Takumi shook his head, "Nope didn't hear anything. You're probably just imagining it. There are no other students here except you and me. The other students are inside their clubrooms."
They continued to walk. Kuromi was still thinking about the voice she heard. Was it really just my imagination? I'm sure I heard it. After a few seconds, another voice echoed through the hallway.
"KARASAWA-SAN! I LOVE YOU! PLEASE GO OUT WITH ME!" she heard the voice again! She stopped and looked around again to see where the guy is but still wasn't able to find the guy.
"I HEARD IT AGAIN!" Kuromi screamed to Takumi.
"Heard what?" Takumi still had no idea what Kuromi is talking about.
"KARASAWA-SAN! I LOVE YOU! PLEASE GO OUT WITH ME!" Kuromi heard another one. "THERE! YOU HEARD THAT? SOMEONE IS CONFESSING TO ME AGAIN!" then she noticed something. She noticed that the voice is just the same and it's saying the same thing over and over again. She noticed Takumi holding onto something in his right hand. She then looked at Takumi's right hand in which she saw him holding a cell phone where a recorded voice of a guy confessing to Kuromi is being played repeatedly by Takumi! She was surprised to see that then she looked back at Takumi and she saw his face painted with an evil smile.
"SO IT WAS YOU!" Kuromi shouted toTakumi and pointing her finger to him. Takumi just laughed on Kuromi's reaction.
"WAHAHA! You mad, Karasawa-san? It was really effective! Haha! You're so easy to be tricked!" Takumi teases Kuromi more which pisses the girl off. THIS GUY ISN'T NICE AFTER ALL!
Takumi continued to repeat the recorded voice while having that evil smile on his face. "WILL YOU PLEASE STOP THAT?!" Kuromi, finally pissed, screamed to Takumi who is just laughing at her. "Ahaha! Sorry, sorry! I just love making pranks. Fine I'll stop now," Takumi explained while still laughing at Kuromi. Despite the looks, Takumi is actually a troll who loves to annoy the hell out of others.
"THAT'S NOT FUNNY!" Kuromi is totally mad now. "Fine, fine! I understand. Sorry! Haha calm down now," Takumi said, trying to calm down the enraged Kuromi.
"Hmpf! And Arisa said that you were the nicest guy of all," Kuromi pouted.
"Haha. Not really. She's just complimenting me too much," Takumi answered, "so let's go now. Clubroom is almost there."
"Fine! And don't do that again okay?!" Kuromi warned Takumi. "Yes, yes. I won't" Takumi promised.
They continued to walk to their clubroom which is already near to them. Their clubroom is located at the end of the hallway. They soon reached the door of their club.
"Here we are! They're waiting for you inside. Make sure you introduce yourself properly," those words of Takumi gave again Kuromi the nervousness she felt this morning. Oh crap! Here it comes! The introduction! I'm getting nervous again and Arisa isn't here! AAHHHH! Takumi opened the door while Kuromi is starting to shake then suddenly a spider jumped out to Kuromi's face. "GYAAAAAHH!" she screamed in fear and fell down on the floor until she noticed that it was just a toy.
"Hm! Nice face Karasawa-san!" Takumi took a picture of Kuromi's reaction then showed it to her, "I threw that toy to your face right after I opened the door. Were you scared? Wahaha!"
"I'M SCARED AS HELL! STOP WITH THE PRANKS ALREADY!" Kuromi got mad again. "AND ERASE THAT PICTURE!"
"Oh no, I can't do that. That's the number one rule of our club. Once a photo is captured, it cannot be deleted unless its low quality and we specialize on taking stolen shots so most of the photos we have here are like this. Funny stolen pictures," Takumi explained while waving his phone.
"SO YOU MADE THIS CLUB JUST FOR THAT?!" Kuromi exclaimed.
"Takumi. There you go again trolling other people," suddenly someone inside the clubroom talked. It was the glasses guy who is currently sitting beside their clubroom's window and currently is reading a book. He is the Photography Club's secretary, Furumiya Koichi. He has a brown hair and eyes that seem to look cold at them. His face doesn't show any emotions. He has quite a slim body and his height goes around 174 cm.
"Oh hello there Koichi! You're the only one here?" Takumi greeted him while he and Kuromi entered the room. Koichi is the only one inside the room .The others are not there. Kuromi remembered Koichi. Oh he was the guy who offered a deal with me.
"They all went here a while ago but quickly left. They all had their own projects to finish," Koichi answered in a low and monotonous voice while still looking at the book. Takumi and Kuromi placed their bags on the table then took a seat.
"Oh by the way Koichi. This is our new member Karasawa Kuromi. Remember her? The one who suddenly went inside our room? Haha!" Takumi said to Koichi, pointing out to Kuromi.
Kuromi stood up and introduced herself, "A-ah. Hello I'm Karasawa Kuromi of class 4-A. I-I am Arisa classmate and childhood friend."
"Furumiya Koichi," Koichi introduced himself without even looking at Kuromi. He then continued to read.
"Hey, at least look at me when you're introducing yourself!" Kuromi pouted. Takumi laughed at the two of them and explained to Kuromi about Koichi's personality, "Haha! That's just how Koichi is. Don't let it bother you. He's always that cold towards others but once you get to know each other, I'm sure you will get along. He is actually a nice guy so no need to worry."
"Oh is that so? Well nice meeting you then. Furumiya-kun," Kuromi continued with the courtesy. Koichi stopped reading for a second and looked at Kuromi with a cold stare, "Same here," then he returned to his book.
"HEY!" Kuromi got irritated at Koichi's attitude, "Stop being rude and talk to me properly!"
"I'm talking to you properly, idiot. You have looks but you don't have brains. Oh my," Koichi answered, pissing off Kuromi more.
"Y-YOU!" before Kuromi enrages, Takumi tried to calm her down quickly. Koichi just ignored and continued to read.
"H-hey Koichi, shouldn't you be at least kind to welcome our new member?" Takumi pleaded to Koichi but Koichi didn't respond and just kept on reading. Takumi just smiled and didn't force Koichi anymore.
Kuromi glared at Koichi. This guy is so damn rude! He really pisses me off! Is that how you talk with other people?! This bastard!There's no way I'll get along with this guy! Kuromi gave up talking to Koichi and returned to her seat. Takumi just laughed at them. "Oh you guys are funny. This is kind of interesting."
"By the way. Why are there only two of you here? Where are the others? As far as I remember, there were seven of you here," Kuromi asked Takumi, wondering where the other members are.
Takumi answered Kuromi, "Oh like what Koichi said, they just went here a while ago but then left quickly. He said they had their own projects to do so they went home earlier."
"How about the two of you? Don't you have any projects to do?" Kuromi continued to ask.
"Well we do have but I can do my work here so it's fine if I stay and besides we do our work earlier unlike those five who always rush things," Takumi explained.
Takumi and Kuromi continued to talk around while Koichi remained silent reading a book. The very first guy Kuromi got along with was Takumi who talked a lot about the things they do inside their club.
"So what we always do is capture pictures of happenings here in our school. That's just what our club does. Most of the time, we just hang out here but when we have a job, we do it quickly and accurately. Oh yeah I forgot to tell you but each member here have their own codenames depending on the way they capture photos."
"Codenames? What kind of codenames?"
"Well for example, Koichi's codename is Assault because he captures pictures by directly attacking the target head on! Mine is Counter because once I was attacked, I quickly fight back and take a picture of them as well. You will also be given a codename once we learn the kind of ability you have."
"Wait why does it sound like you're at a war. Even your codenames refer to soldiers!"
"Well like I told you a while ago, our club specializes on stolen pictures and in order to do that, we must have the speed, the accuracy and the courage to attack and take a picture of a student's funny moment."
"I wonder how did this club was approved."
Somehow Kuromi's fear faded away. Thanks to Takumi who has a very light aura while talking to him.
Suddenly Koichi stood up which caught the attention of Takumi and Kuromi. "I'm going home," Koichi said then he returned the book to his bag then carried the bag then walked towards the door, "Tell the president I went home already," then he went out and closed the door, leaving Kuromi and Takumi inside. They continued chatting in which Kuromi starts to enter Koichi in the topic.
"Hm? Uh you know you can just call me Takumi."
"Oh is that so? Well then Takumi-kun I want to ask something."
"What is it?"
"Why is that guy like that? He's so cold and rude!"
"Oh that? Haha! I told you a while ago that's just how Koichi interacts with someone he doesn't know yet. He's just shy. Just keep on talking to him and he will talk to you eventually. Despite that attitude of him, he is really kind that's why Arisa accepted him here in our club."
"Really? I hope so. By the way, would you mind telling me something about the other members?"
"Eh? Oh no, I can't do that. If you want to know them then you have to meet them. If I tell you everything about them now, then the thrill will be gone. Just like how people keep on spoiling Sword Art Online."
"Uh I don't think that last part is necessary."
Then Arisa entered the club and she saw that Takumi and Kuromi are the only ones inside the room. "Hello! Oh it's just the two of you? Where are the others?"
"Oh Arisa. Welcome. The other went home already," Takumi welcomed Arisa and answered her question as well.
"Oh is that so? So what happened while I'm not here?" Arisa asked another question.
"Oh Arisa. Welcome. Well we just talked for hours. This club is quite weird huh," Kuromi answered Arisa. Then Arisa suddenly realized that Takumi and Kuromi were all alone inside the club for hours.
"W-WAIT! Y-YOU MEAN IT'S ONLY THE TWO OF YOU HERE ALL DAY?!" Arisa panicked, pointing her finger to Takumi and Kuromi.
"Ah no Koichi was here a while ago," Takumi answered to prevent Arisa from jumping to a misunderstanding which actually worked to the club's president.
"Oh is that so? Sigh… I thought you did something here," Arisa calmed down, "Anyway since we got nothing to do today, wanna go home?"
"What do you mean 'did something' Arisa?!" Kuromi asked getting frightened.
The three of them decided to go home. They locked the clubroom's door then left the school before the sun goes down. As they exit the school, Kuromi and Arisa parted ways with Takumi who waved back at them before parting.
"So Kuromi what can you say about our club?" while walking home, Arisa started asking questions to Kuromi.
"Eh? Well I guess it's a nice club?" Kuromi gave an unsure answer while throwing an awkward smile.
"I see that you got to talk to Takumi casually a while ago. So your fear was cured?"
"Well I guess. Thanks to him. He really is quite a nice guy to talk with though his personality of being a prankster is annoying."
Arisa gazed at Kuromi. "Uhhh Arisa? What's the problem?" Kuromi asked, getting confused.
"Oh is that so? Then does that mean you like him now?" Arisa interrogated Kuromi, still gazing at her.
"Eh? Well I guess he is the first guy I got along with. That's all. Why? Do you have a crush on him?" Arisa flustered after hearing Kuromi's answer, "W-W-WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! W-why did you suddenly come up with that assumption? Let's just go home for now!"
Kuromi just smiled at Arisa, "Yeah let's go now."
"So you only get to meet two of them huh? There are still other five guys in our club. Well maybe tomorrow you can meet them. You get to meet Takumi and Koichi today so the ones remaining are Makoto, Shigeru, Tomoki, Ichiro and Kenta. Oh great, those guys are a bunch of weirdos," Arisa said to Kuromi.
"What do you mean Arisa?"
"Oh nothing! Just go see for yourself!"
They continued to walk their way home. Today I was able to talk and get along with a guy thanks to Takumi but it's a different story regarding Koichi That guy is really annoying. I wonder if I can really get along with him. There are still five guys and Arisa said they're a bunch of weirdos? Kuromi wonders.
