Dear Diary,

I saw him again today, playing with the tennis team. He's so great at it. He's like...like a superstar! Yeah, a superstar of tennis. (wow, I'm such a nerd sometimes ^,^ ) I love watching him; could watch for hours.... My Yanagi-senpai....

I wish I had the nerve to talk to him. But I don't dare, so I'll have to be content watching from afar....

-Me

Dear Diary,

I've got it! The greatest idea! There's a dance coming up - I should go to it with Yanagi-senpai! I'll wear a pretty dress and he'll be lovely in a tux and we'll dance the night away. And then he'll lean down ever so slowly and we'll kiss...

Ooh! Wouldn't that be wonderful!?

Though of course I don't have the courage to ask him myself. I think I'd be best off dropping hints that I want him to ask me. Oh! And I should wear some make-up to school so I'll be prettier, and he won't be able to resist! ^,^

-the future Mrs. Yanagi

Dear Diary,

Yanagi-senpai didn't ask me to the dance.... ;_; But I overheard during the tennis practice, Yagyuu-senpai told Niou-senpai that he was going, so I think I'm going to go anyway, and maybe "oops" bump into him there and maybe even get a dance!

Hope he's not taking some girl prettier than me though! >_<

-still hopeful Me

Dear Diary,

I'm a little confused....

I did go to the dance last night and I saw Yanagi-senpai...but it looked like he was with...a guy? I mean, it was someone I didn't know and Sachiko-chan said his name was...Tachi...something...and that he was the captain of some other school's tennis team. So I'm sure they're just friends through tennis and he brought him along to hang out...right?

Right?

But do guys - guys who are simple friends - dance together? Dance together...like that?

He seemed so happy. He seemed to shine at that dance, like the superstar I just know he is. (there goes my dorkiness again..) And I want him to shine like that for me.

-Me

Dear Diary,

I feel like such a fool.

It started to nag at me, who this Tachibana of Fudomine was and what he wanted with my Yanagi-senpai. So I followed them while they were hanging out.

It seemed typical - I mean I know it's not common for two guys to do dinner and movies together, but I could rationalize that maybe they were just fun things they felt like doing. But I can not convince myself that guys who are just friends go on moonlit walks through the park together, and they do not kiss underneath the "Ai no Sakura."

I can't believe it. I'm so heartbroken. ;_; Here I am trying to be all pretty and girlie as possible... Make-up!? That was probably the last thing he'd be interested in!

But yet...that shine was there again. That shine he gets when he's playing tennis, or like he had at the dance. That shine like he could stay in a particular moment forever.

Fine, if this Tachibana person makes him happy, I won't complain. (too much.. ^,^; ) But if he ever hurts him in any way, he'll have to deal with me!

I guess from here I'll move on..

Hmm... I wonder if Sanada-senpai is seeing anyone! ^_^
