Disclaimer: I am not Matsumoto-sensei, therefore I do not own "Yumeiro Pâtissière" or anything related to this manga, game and anime.
Author's Note: Saa . . . I'm interested with Rick's character that I wanted to try writing about him. :)
He doesn't know why he's so fascinated with Amano Ichigo.
Truth is, he really can't understand it, himself, on why he's taken quite a liking towards her. Maybe it's because of her radiance that seemed to pull anyone in? Or, maybe, it's because of their love for sweets? Yes; that just may be it. Both of them share the same interest and maybe, just maybe, he felt thrilled to find out that she's aiming to become a pâtissière ('pâtissier' for him) just like him.
Ricardo Benigni goes through his thoughts, as he is unsure whether or not he's on the right track. But one thing's for sure:
Amano Ichigo is a very interesting person, indeed.
