The next challenge Aki faced, was actually asking Minami out. Aki was no Romeo, he didn't have the brains to be even near that stage. But some how, he was going to have to figure out how he was going to do that, without Miharu interfering. Mission impossible.
The school day had ended and everyone was walking out of Fumizuki Academy to go home. Just before Minami left Classroom F, Aki put his hand on her shoulder. All of a sudden Minami threw him over her shoulder, then tried bending his back so his feet could touch his head.
"Now I know what death feels like!" Aki screamed.
"Well you shouldn't of startled me like that then" Minami replied.
"Could I just have a minute with you?" Aki questioned
"Ummm... Sure." Minami replied in question.
They walked over to the courtyard, where they could talk in private.
"Ok, so what did you want to talk about?" Minami questioned.
"I haven't done this before, so..., um..." Aki replied nervously.
"Listen! If your going to waste my time, then i'm leaving" Minami said and then tried to walk off. Just as she was, Aki grabbed her hand and pulled her into a passionate kiss. Minami's spine was tingling as she lost track of time. The same was for Aki. Once the kiss ended, Aki said.
"What i'm trying to say is I love you, and what i'm trying to ask is will you go out with me?" The look on Minami's face was like a tsunami had just hit her.
"No, no, no." Minami said, "Why me? Why not Muzuki, she is more girlfriend material than me. She is more of a princess than i'll ever be." After hearing that, Aki went up to Minami's ear and whispered.
"You may not be perfect, but that's all I want."
"Thanks Aki, and yes, I'll go out with you." And with that, Minami went up for another kiss. But this time, someone had caught them. That someone Was Miharu.
