Chapter 3

"Say Bye"

DING DONG

Mio rings the doorbell of the Hirasawa household.

A few seconds later Ui appears at the door.

"Good evening Mio, Come in, please," Ui says politely

"Thank you," Mio says as she walks in.

Ui sits there not knowing what to talk about.

"Umm. . . Has Yui came home yet?" Mio finally asked.

"Yes, but, she's been in her room ever since, you can go visit her if you want," Ui says.

"Thank you," Mio said.

Mio then heads upstairs as Ui goes into the kitchen to prepare dinner.

Mio knocks on the door gently "Yui?"

Yui confused at why Mio would come and visit her after what she did.

"Mio?"

"May I come in?"

There was silence for a while.

"Yui, Are you there? its me, Mio,"

No reply.

"Yui, tell me what's wrong,"

Mio knocks harder.

Silence.

Mio then sighed and picked up her bag and went back downstairs.

"Ah, Mio, please, stay for dinner," Ui said

"I'm sorry, but I must get back home, its getting pretty late," Mio said.

"But-"

Mio left the house, walking very fast.

Back in the clubroom the three girls were still sitting there silently.

Then Azusa finally spoke up, "You think they'll be okay?"

"I don't know," Ritsu said calmly.

"I think I'll head home and get ready for my lessons later this evening," Mugi said with a sigh.

"I guess I'll head home too," Azusa and Ritsu said in unison.

The three walked in silence until they exchanged farewells.

"Well, I'll see you guys tomorrow. . ." Ritsu said.

"Mmk, bye Mugi-senpai, bye Ritsu-senpai" Azusa said.

Mugi waves to them as she headed to the place where her limo was waiting.

Ritsu and Azusa went different directions.

"Azu-nyan!" Ritsu called out.

Azusa looks back and replies, "Yes, senpai?"

"Everything will be alright!" She said smiling.

"Mm!" Azusa nods smiling back.

"See you tomorrow!" Ritsu waves to her.

Azusa waves to her with a smile.

Azusa sighed and walked home with her head low.

"Why'd it turn out like this. . ." She mumbled.
