Kirby Cafe (Aichi)
-S-She's fine with it? It's not like... embarrassing or going too fast or weird or—-
"O-Oh, um... OK!"
-Well, that makes him feel a lot better. Whew! That was actually pretty scary, but this is Misaki... She wouldn't push him away over something like talking about making something for her...-
-He has a sheepish smile now, but it's clear that the answer did relieve him of the stress...-
"Ehehe... I could bring something to Card Capital for lunch sometime..."
-W-Wait, no, that wouldn't work... Food isn't allowed in the store since it could ruin the merchandise...-
-...Ah, but wait! The bench next to Card Capital! They were fortunate enough that it was brought along with Card Capital!-
"You could have it during your break..."
-Ugh, he's still feeling so awkward...-
-...And yet he's happy? It's so contradictory...-
"...Or anytime would be nice."
-His smile relaxes a bit with that. Just being with Misaki at all is nice. Whenever she'd like a meal is all right with him.-
-...Although it'd naturally have to be on a day that he's not busy with work.-
-...Oh man, he still dreads the idea of her finding him working... at a butler cafe.-
(notes that down... then thinks)
Wait a minute, what?
That sounds nice, I'd love to sometime...
(KIRBY RETURNS, FOOD IN HAND)
Edited by TooManyIdeas on May 15th 2019 at 8:16:15 AM
-She'd love to! She'd love to!-
-However, before he can get around to responding, Kirby appears with their meals!-
-He smiles at Kirby, definitely in higher spirits again.-
"Thank you, Kirby!"
-Ah, it looks so good...!-
-Yep, Misaki can tell by looking in his eyes that he's definitely ready to dig into that food.-
-...Of course, she also knows he wouldn't be quite this excited if she weren't here.-
-This is a side of him that most people don't get to see. He usually keeps a lot of himself contained. He doesn't hide that side of himself with Vanguard, but with other things... he keeps a lid on it.-
-But for once, he's actually revealing a bit more of himself. Perhaps a bit hyped up on the high of being on the date with Misaki, but this is a sincere love of pancakes (OK, he loves waffles more, but pancakes are also great) and shortcake.-
-He actually is having fun despite his nervousness, and he's honestly so happy to be with Misaki right now.-
-Perhaps to most it just seems like he's in a very good mood, but... that's not all.-
-He loves and trusts you enough that you're seeing him express himself. Even if it's in something as small as having sparkling eyes about pancakes, this is something he usually keeps contained.-
-He's opening up to you, Misaki.-
How did I get here...?
(Misaki smiles at that, happy to see him actually getting comfortable with her. She takes a bite out of the hot dog...)
(for the record the food is FUCKING amazing and there's heart and soul in it)
-He naturally starts eating after the 'itadakimasu', of course.-
-He takes a bite, and...-
-Oh man... Oh man, it's SO good!-
"Ah...! It's delicious!"
-He doesn't know how Kirby did it, but holy crud it's amazing!-
-Don't tell Aichi that the food is probably made out of generic Kirby Mooks from Kirby using the Cook ability.-
-He can't stop chuckling... He's just having such a good time! The only way this could be any better is if they were cardfighting right now!-
-He looks back up at Misaki after having taken a few bites of his amazing pancakes.-
"Are you enjoying yours?"
-He hopes so! He really hopes the hot dogs are at least as good as his pancakes!-
"Ionno, it's weird."
This is... probably the best hot dog I've ever had. And it's free, this is incredible...
Is there... anything... you can be specific about.
-So hers is great too!-
-Aichi's definitely pleased to hear that.-
"Ehehehe... I can see why everyone was praising this cafe!"
-He doesn't get it at all... How can Kirby just do this for free?! How can he cook so well?!-
"These pancakes rival Mom's pancakes..."
-And his mom is a great cook.-
-Ah, are his pancakes already almost done...? Is he eating too quickly or does it just feel like time is moving fast?-
-Considering how much he's enjoying the date, it really could be either...-
-He still has the shortcake, at least! He's been doing his best to save it for last.-
-Oh man, if the pancakes are this good...-
-...Imagine the strawberry shortcake.-
"... Uh... it's interdimensional?"
...All right, all right...
(Noting this down)
(Misaki's almost done with the hot dogs, too...!)
(kirby seems very proud of himself)
-This just leaves...-
-Aichi looks down at it, fully prepared for the pain his stomach will most likely be feeling with the combination of pancakes and strawberry shortcake in the future...-
-...But he stops, and looks up at Misaki again.-
-He... is honestly very afraid he might be overstepping his bounds... This is something rather... well, big, isn't it? This is what couples do on Christmas, for crying out loud...!-
-Definitely red, but trying his best not to seem too flustered...-
"M-Misaki, um... would you..."
-His eyes shift down at the cake before looking back up at her.-
-It's one slice, but he feels like it wouldn't be fair to have some without her... Hopefully this isn't too forward...!-

How do you know it's interdimensional...?
(After a moment of thought, Misaki nods, smiling.) Thank you.
"I've been here longer than you. I figure these things out."
-S-She wants some?!-
-Oh man, is it warm in here...? Or is the heat and blushing starting to finally get to him...?-
-Still, his smile is bright.-
-W-Wait, that's not right... Ack, how embarrassing...!-
-Right, that's what he should have said...-
-And thus... THEY SHARE THE CAKE!-
-And, maybe because he's eating it with Misaki...-
-...This cake blows his mother's out of the water.-
-The boy's eyes are sparkling even more grandly than they have the whole time, and you can pretty much hear the angelic chorus echoing in his mind about the glory of the cake.-
-Is he sure he's not dreaming right now? He's beginning to be afraid he's dreaming, actually... Would things really go so well if he weren't...?-
-This is reality. He knows that.-
-The feelings flowing through him, the smile on Misaki's face, everything... They're all real.-
-The beating of his heart is real, the warmth Misaki brings him is real...-
-Everything, everything is real...-
-...And that brings him more joy than Misaki could ever imagine.-
I-I was just trying to figure out the nature of this place...
(misaki... TAKES A BITE OUT OF THE FOOD and APPARENTLY ENJOYS IT VERY VERY GREATLY)
-Eventually the cake is gone, leaving just the couple.-
-It was so good, and just sharing it with Misaki sort of made his head turn to mush...-
-He needs a second...-
"The cake is amazing...!"
-Now he's just... smiling at Misaki. His head's still a bit mushy. Just as the night he confessed, he feels like he could almost get lost looking into her eyes right now...-
-...Ack, when did he get so sappy...?-
-Perhaps he's still a bit too high on a new, or better yet first, romance...-
-He should mellow out eventually, but for the moment things like this are just... so new and exciting and joyous.-
-Thankfully he's not so sappy as to get completely entranced by her eyes, and awkwardly averts his eyes again.-
"D-Did you like it...?"
-Although, with that... perhaps it's time for them to leave... They've finished their meals...-

"And that's it! That's the nature."
Aren't you helpful.
I did... thank you for sharing.
(She smiles, and nods to Kirby as she stands up.) Thank you for the meal.
(extreme pride coming from this ball of fluffy goodness)
-She liked it... Good.-
"I'm so glad!"
-He also stands, and nods to Kirby.-
"Thank you, Kirby. The food was absolutely delicious!"
-It was an absolute blast... Misaki, the date, the food, Kirby, everything!-
-He looks to Misaki now, and...-
-...Well... There's one more thing he's supposed to do...-
"I-I can walk you home, if you'd like..."
-The guy's supposed to do that for the girl, right? Walk them home after a date like this?-
Edited by CrystalMemoria on May 15th 2019 at 9:25:52 AM
Can you lead me to whoever's in charge here?
Oh...! Thank you. I'd really appreciate that.
(HAND HOLD OFFER AGAIN)
-T-That's a yes? So he'll walk her home to Card Capital, great!-
-OK, you lived through the first time, and it made you happy...! It made her happy...!-
-He takes her hand, a bit less shyly than the last time.-
-With a smile, he says...-
"You're welcome. We should probably leave now, if we don't want it to be dark by the time we reach Card Capital..."
-...Oh, what's he doing saying something stupid like that?!-
-Snap out of it, Aichi...-
-ONWARD, TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD!-
"Oh, he got fired."
