Sakura Kinomoto had finally done it. Had finally prepared herself. Gotten ready. She was prepared. She could do this. She would do this. She was GOING TO DO THIS!

OR atleast, the other two girls likely had been hoping WHATEVER had her so distracted would be asked soon, as today had been her most scatter brained yet. She had messed up orders, fallen over, and just... generally made dozens of mistakes when normally she made none. And it was after bowing her apologies to a leaving guest at the end of the rush, she finally sighed and looked at her two big sisters. Slowly, she inched over and...

"Haruno-oneechan, Akari-oneechan, can we talk?" she asked sheepishly. "I ummm... I need your advice..."

Silence for a moment as her cheeks went red. And... "It's... about a boy." Oh dear heavens.

Haruna Kurosawa had on safety glasses in the backroom. Why? She was trying to make the most chocolatey frozen coffee drink on the menu and make it more chocolately while keeping the coffeness of it. This always ended with at least a little of a splash zone, hence the googles. Whelp. she comes out, wiping her face with a towel and places chocolate covered glasses down on the back counter.

"Another failure." she whines. "Lame." she offers. She looks towards the two after the rush and gently smiles to Sakura. "Sure! Of course we can Sakura-chan~" she sings softly as she sits down and spins in a stool before stopping herself and leaning forward.

"About... a boy?...." she blinks. "----oh!" she says as her eyes light up!

"Sakura-chan do you have a crush!?" she asked with wide eyes. "EEeeeeeeeee---!" she lets out a little. Not very high pitched at least.

"Who is it?" she asks as she leans forward over the counter eagerly.

Akari is patient. It's one of the functions of her infiltration mode; getting angry draws attention, after all. And, y'know, it's just part of her personality. But with Sakura, she's willing to go the extra mile as far as being patient is concerned. Haruna, too, for that matter.

She pauses when Sakura speaks up. Haruna's excitement causes her to crack open a smile. "Well ... Frau Doktor actually had to explain to me that liking boys was even a thing," she says. That's the first thing that came to mind when Sakura raised that particular subject. "But some of my experiences with, uh, Nakajima-san should be applicable. What's up?"

... 'Nakajima-san'? Well, at least she's letting go.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-12-20 01:01:40 101864
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then got a small little smile on her face. "W-well... Err... I mean, it's, err... It's..." She cupped her cheeks, her entire face red as she looked at the ground. As she stood, she gently, nervously, swayed back and forth with embarrassment, making her cute little skirt ruffle.

"Y-Yukito-sempai!" Well... There would ben o surprise for Haruna. As while she may not have met Sakura's brother much, usually Yukito was with them. AnD sakura's pounding heart was obvious. And the way she looked at him. And just the way she said his name, like she was talking about the most beautiful and mystical unicorn of all time... Sigh... Even now, just saying his name had brought a happy, content sigh from the girl.

She then turned back to them, determination on her face. "I-I went to a special shop, and and, I got a bear that I built myself and and if I give it to him we're going to fall in love forever and hee hee I need to know how to best give it to him so it'll be the first start of our eternal romance!" She had ACTUAL hearts in her eyes as she spoke of him.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-12-20 01:15:50 101865
Haruna Kurosawa isn't even a little surprised. But wasn't he a lot older than Sakura? Maybe he's a lot younger than he looks? Regardless it isn't her place to judge and she crosses her arms and hrmmsss~ "Aha! I thought so but I wanted to be super sure." she says.

"...well." she says. "Maybe you should just give him the bear and tell him how you feel?" she asks with a smile. "I mean..." she says as she uncrosses her arms. "---if you sit on your feelings, Sakura-chan, he'll never know- and I think that's always worse than knowing how he might feel back." she says softly.

"--- because one sided love is the wooooorrsseeee, trust me." she says. "One time. I had a crush on a big jerk. But the big jerk didn't have a crush back at me. Because the big jerk likes pink hair adorable and smart bluenettes a lot better." she huffs and crosses her arms and turns around into the stool dramatically as she looks towards Akari, and gently leans over and stage whispers. "Girls are best thou!......" she winnnnks.
Rosalie Janus 2018-12-20 01:25:59 101866
Akari considers this. She recognizes the name from talk around Final Judgment, but she now realizes she underestimated just how important he was to Sakura. (She hasn't seen Yukito except when he was being Yui, but if she had, she has enough trouble with her own age-issues.)

She shrugs. "Nakajima-san and I just sort of ... happened," she says. "Setting aside arch-witch dream-worlds, our first date was ..." She shrugs. "Well, we went to a restaurant and I said 'hey, is this a date?' and she didn't see why not ..." Her voice trails off, and she frowns.

But then she shakes her head and shrugs. "Anyway, Haruna-chan is right," she says. "You want to be open and direct. Give her -- I mean, give him the bear, and tell him how you feel."

She smiles sidelong at Haruna at that last comment, but doesn't say another word.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-12-20 01:30:36 101867
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then stared at Haruna. "Wait... Someone could... How could someone not crush on you? You're amazing! It'd be like... Not crushing on Akari! That doesn't even make sense!" she objected to such nonsense. But then nodded.

"Y-yeah. I'm... I'm going to. And... ummm... What if he doesn't like... me back? I mean, I never see him with any girls.... so... I know he doesn't have a girl friend... All he seems to do is hang out with my big yucky brother, blech."

The nodded. "But... But I'm gonna tell him. But... how? Should... Should I make him dinner? Meet him after school? On the way home one day? Sigh..." And just thinking about it. "What if I roller bladed home and crashed into him... And he helped me up, and our hands touched, and we gazed into each other's eyes... and he swept me up in his arms and he told me..." Oh dear heavens she was even drooling a little.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-12-20 01:42:37 101871
Haruna Kurosawa seems to tap a finger at what Sakura says.... could he-- and--- her brother and---? Mmmphg... she isn't sure. She doesn't have enough information but she does side eye Akari a moment as she looks back to Sakura.

"---sometimes...." she tries to think. "Sometimes that's just how it is, Sakura-chan." she says softly. "Sometimes the person you like and have a crush on... might not like you back the same way." she says softly.

"--don't go crashing into him on purpose, Sakura-chan!" she warns. "I would... maybe ask him when he's alone, in a quiet place. This way you aren't putting him in the spot in front of his friends or something, Sakura." she offers quietly. "If you want to invite him to your place and make him dinner that might be best... maybe." she says tapping her chin.
Rosalie Janus 2018-12-20 01:51:07 101875
Akari meets Haruna's eye, and frowns. "Yeah ... if he says no," she says carefully, "then it's better to, uh, to rip the bandaid off as soon as you can, rather than ... spend all this time building your hopes and feelings up." She decides not to voice things like 'at least you haven't moved in with him.'

She considers the talk about the initial confession. "Maybe something like ... I don't know, you'd need to make sure it's just the two of you, so nobody can interrupt," she says. She isn't really sure where to go from there; with Mikoto, starting the relationship had just ... worked out.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-12-20 02:05:32 101879
Sakura Kinomoto nodded, before sighing. "Well... I... I know just how to do it, then. I'll meet him after classes for the day. Big brother has clubs and I know sometimes Yukito-sempai... sigh... sometimes goes home alone. I... I'll meet him then. And tell him everything!" she said firmly. Then content sigh again.

"And then we'll get married and live in a beautiful blue house next to Tomoyo-chan's and have a dozen kids together and you can be their aunts and..." Hearts were riding off her head as she spoke of her fairy tail ending.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-12-20 02:09:29 101881
Haruna Kurosawa acquired one of those super rare anime sweatdrops when Sakura starts spilling out about her cute, adorable future with Yukito and how they'll have children that will probably be even more adorable as sin and---

"W--woah Sakura-chan! Let's just get through the first part, yeah?" she asks. "You can think about that maybe in a year, yeah?" she asks. Akari may not know it, but HARUNA is trying to be the voice of reason that may be a warning sign. Maybe. Maybe double time two.

Haruna may be glad magical hearts are purely hypothetical effect because she doesn't want to clean the ceiling of heart goo.
Rosalie Janus 2018-12-20 02:17:50 101884
Akari nods along ... right up until the minute Sakura starts making plans, and then she winces. She only slightly knows about Haruna being a warning sign, but Sakura's reaction by itself is worrying enough. "Yeah, uh ..." She shakes her head. "Sakura-imoutochan, that was exactly what I was talking about. You need to wait until you've at least spoken to Yukito-san before working yourself up like that."

Rubindorn, tucked away in her pocket, doesn't try to scan the hearts for their magical properties because they don't really exist and that would be dumb.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-12-20 02:26:52 101890
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then nodded. "Okay. You win," she said with a soft sigh. "I won't day dream about our wonderful wedding until after I ask him--"

"Sakura-chan, did you say wedding dress?" Tomoyo asked, suddenly just... there. How...? Her eyes were sparkling. "That's wonderful! I already have 6 different versions in mind!"

Sakura blinked and then yelped and Tomoyo grabbed her hand. "And if you're going to finally confess to Yukito-sempai, I have just the outfit!"

"W-what? Huh? Ack!"

... Wait. How... how did Tomoyo know about that? She JUST got here... She squeaked and waved as she was dragged out. "Bye Akari-oneechan! By Haruna-oneechan!" she yelled back.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-12-20 02:29:21 101891
Haruna Kurosawa is about to say something when Tomoyo suddnely appears and--- drags Sakura out. "B--bye Sakura-chan. Remember what we said.. l..let us know how it goes-- if it does!" she rapidly says as she suddenly looks towards Akari and says merely two words.

"Oooohhhhh dear."
Rosalie Janus 2018-12-20 02:31:04 101893
Akari blinks, equally caught by surprise by Sudden Tomoyo! She waves goodbye uncertainly. "Um ... see you later!"

She sighs, and turns to Haruna. "I think even that reaction might be overly-optimistic."
