Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS; they are Higuchi Tachibana-sama's. I only own the idea.

­­­­­­­­­­Natsume and Mikan here are both 6 years old. The setting is outside the academy, specifically in the playground.

A very short yet very cute story.

Mikan and Natsume were playing by the sandy area. They were making a castle. Mikan and Natsume were across each other. Mikan was humming while doing the sand castle and when it was done, Natsume suddenly spoke up.

"Oi polka, reach out." he ordered.

"Reach out what?" she asked.

"Your hand, let's hold hands." he said, more of like a demand.

Mikan just giggled but still reach out her hand to Natsume. And after that, they went home holding hands together.

Hope you like it!

A review is very much appreciated!
