Chapter VI: Will I be Ok?
“Akira… Hey Akira” Yukina was calling to me while I was lost in my thoughts.
“You know your lunch box won’t get finished if you just glare at it” she said it with a smirk on her face. “So what’s the matter? What are you daydreaming about?”
“Well I am going to quit the arts club”
“Wait, what!! It’s been only one day that you have joined the club. Don’t you think you should think about it one more time? Ah, whatever so are you going to join the cooking club?” asked Yukina.
“Well I don’t think so, I just don’t want any other person to come behind me and say “Hey your cookies kind of suck” and I think it’s better for me if I don’t join any club” I said it in a depressing tone.
“Hey, I think you should not quit the arts club because a person said that your painting is lame. Even though he said that you should prove him that you can get better in it, don’t you think so” said Yukina.
I was smiling while looking at Yukina.
“What?” Asked Yukina while blushing.
“Nothing, I am just happy that I got one more friend who cheers me up like Reiko and Momo”.
” Well I just don’t want you to quit because even I don’t want to go to the club alone ” said Yukina.
“Ha, but Yukina aren’t you good at communicating with others?” I asked her with a huge question mark on my face.
“Well it doesn’t matter if I am good or bad at it. I just feel relief if I have someone I know in the club. Not only me even so many people are like that”said Yukina.
” I can’t even talk to anyone on my own”.
“Hey can I ask you something? Where you like this from your childhood or you became like this from the middle?” asked Yukina.
“Hmmmm, I don’t remember. But I wasn’t like this from my childhood, as far as I know I used to talk with so many people” I stopped talking and started looking outside the window. ” I just don’t like to remember unpleasant things, I just want to forget about them as soon as possible”
“Hey Akira, I don’t want you to quit the arts club. I want you to be in it and do so many paintings with me even though they are good or not” said Yukina.
“I may not be able to promise you that I will stay with you till the end but I will definitely gonna try it on more time” I was telling this to Yukina with a smile on my face but I was asking myself “will I be ok?”
