Her face lit up at the sight of the boy of the hour in front of her. “Ah, Hoshikawa-kun!” She called out to him. He stopped and glanced over his shoulder at her, which she took as a cue that it would be okay to talk to him.
She ran forwards until she had caught up to him, and smiled at him brightly. “How has your day been, Hoshikawa-kun?” She asked the boy politely. And why didn’t you come to school, she added mentally, but refrained herself from saying it out loud.
His face retained it’s same even, bored (or was it tired?) look it had ever since Luna met him, but at least he responded to her question. “Fine, I guess… my left hand dragged me out of bed this morning, and sent me a whole bunch of e-mails…”
“Oh… o-okay…?” Luna couldn’t hold back a sweatdrop.
“Goodbye, Inchou. Maybe I’ll see you later.” Subaru continued quietly, then continued walking away.
“Ah! Wait! DON’T FORGET TO COME TO SCHOOL TOMORROW!” Luna called after him once she was shaken from her stupor. The boy continued walking, and didn’t look behind him.
Luna sighed, but couldn’t help but smile slightly. She didn’t know what he was going through, or why he was acting this way, but it was obvious this “Subaru” was different from most boys. He seemed to be warming up to her though, if only slightly…
And maybe one day soon she would convince him to come to school!
