Keitaro... Keitaro asked ME to be his girlfriend... I couldn't believe it. We had stopped by the bridge where we first met to rest and I was trying to work up the courage to ask him. Then he said something that I missed. I turned at him and asked him what he had said. I could see that he was fighting to get the words out. Then all of a sudden he asked me if I would be his girlfriend. Shouted it actually... I was stunned. I could see him looking at me hopefully, but with worry in his eyes. I think the worry was what snapped me out of my shock. I hugged him. I think I even might have cried. Over and over I found myself repeating the word 'Yes!' into his shirt. He hugged me back. Then... Then we kissed. It was just like my dreams. It... It was indescribable. I felt as if I could do anything. I could feel his joy along side my own and that made me happier.
I don't know how long we stood there, but eventually we had to stop and get the groceries home. We started talking, opening up to one another. It turns out that he had been trying to think of a way to ask me to be his girlfriend and had also sought Haruka's help. It was one of the reasons that Haruka had been so sure that things would work out. It is so ironic that we are so close that our actions mirrored each other so closely. We announced it to everybody when we got home. I think that our friends took it rather well. Motoko respected me enough to let me take care of myself, Su already knew and was happy for me, Kitsune set up a party and Naru... Naru just gave us a small wistful smile. I am currently sitting with Keitaro as I write this. He is writing in his diary as well.
This is the last page of my diary. Keitaro is joking that he'll have to buy me a new one now. I can't help but believe that the next one will be full of happy things. Of dates, of marriage... Who knows? We have our entire future before us. Together there is nothing that we can't do!
Good night Keitaro. I will always love you.
Forever till the end of time
