Ginny had decided to become friends with one Tsukishima Kei. It was a daunting task, full of struggles and hardships to come, but she thought she could handle it. And if she found herself incapable, then at least she could say she tried.
So when lunchtime began, Ginny stayed in her seat and put in her headphones. The playlist of the day was labeled "Disney" and began with an instrumental version of "Be Our Guest". She spaced out whilst looking out the window and so jumped in her seat when she felt a hand land on her shoulder. She took her time to recover, as she knew that lunch didn't end for some time. When she looked to the source of her anxiety, she was met with Kageyama and another boy, who she didn't know.
Kageyama spoke first. "Ginny-san. This is Kunimi Akira, from Aoba Johsai. He will be in your class, and since you will be talking to him anyway, I thought I'd introduce you."
"O-oh, thank you Kageyama!" She then dropped into a bow, "My name is Song Ginny, but you can just call me Ginny. It's nice to meet you!"
Kunimi let out a quiet "nice to meet you too" and promptly left with Kageyama, who left the classroom altogether.
Shaking her head with a smile, Ginny plugged her earphones back in and waited for Tsukishima. She once again began do daydream, and so was rudely awakened when she received a poke on her cheek. It was him, Tsukishima.
He smirked mockingly and sat down. No words were exchanged. It seemed as though Ginny would have to initiate the conversation. Oh well, not like it's a new phenomenon with the boy.
"Ano, Tsukki? Can I ask you a question?"
He sighed and turned around, muttering a "don't call me that" along the way. He looked at her expectantly, waiting for her to start.
Taking the hint, she began talking in English. "About our conversation the other day…" She trailed off, not knowing exactly how to approach the subject.
"Just spit it out, idiot."
"Okay! Jeez, what crawled up your butthole? Anyway, do you have any music recommendations for me? I'm getting a little bored of my current selection, to be honest."
He was surprised, she noted. 'I guess people don't ask him for recommendations all that often.'
Silently, Tsukishima looked through the selection on his phone. Finding what he wanted, he showed the screen to Ginny.
"I did mention in our conversation that I liked T. M. Revolution. Maybe you should check them out."
'Right, he did say that.' "You did mention that, which is why I put it on my list of bands to check out."
He perked up considerably. "List of bands?"
'Got him.' "Yup. A list of all the bands that have been recommended to me, both in English and Japanese. It is quite extens-"
Ginny was cut off by the bell, signaling that lunch was over. The pair split apart (for they had gotten quite close to each other's faces in that conversation) and faced forward. The day was henceforth known as a success!
A/N: I'm so sorry for the wait! Some stuff did happen between Halloween and now, but good news: I'm going to Japan over the summer! Everything is set in stone. Thank you all for the patience! Also, I'm sorry that this chapter is a bit short (especially compared to my others), but I figured something was better than nothing!
