Chapter Six

Strange

Wizard's POV

I watched Akari walk out of the house. She's...she is strange. But I've been told I'm strange. That makes everything okay.

I try to return to my book, but I keep finding myself looking up to the door, thinking that she'll be there, with her warm smile.

And then I usually snap my head down to my book, telling myself it is all nonsense.

But then the cycle repeats.

And after a few dozen times, you start to wonder...

Is it all really just nonsense?

Akari could never be just nonsense.

Never.
