Naomi laments about her feelings for Jun. Short, but important chapter.
Chapter Eleven: See Me!:
Fukuda Jun. He’s been there for me since we were six. He’s the only boy who notices me. I met him after I met Sayako.
Sayako-chan was sick with the flu that day. I went out to the playground alone. I did what I normally did before I met Sayako. The other kids looked so happy playing with their friends. I had always dreamt of playing along with them. I didn’t know how to interact with other kids. That’s when I met him.
Jun was a skinny kid then, just like he is now. He still had those glasses too. Fond smile He had lost something then. I think it was a cat. Maybe a puppy. I can’t fully remember. But, that’s how he approached me.
“Excuse me,” I heard him say. “Can you help me?” I thought I was hearing things at first. I looked and saw this skinny boy with a round face and big glasses. I have to admit that he did look rather cute. I blinked at him at first.
“Huh?” I asked.
“I lost my pet,” he said. “Can you help me find him?” I don’t know what it was about him then. But, I felt so close to him with trying. I rose to my feet before him.
“Okay,” I said. That boy smiled at me.
“Thank you,” he said with a bow. Then, we went off to find his pet. I don’t remember if we found it or not. I didn’t care to be honest. I was just happy to have a new friend.
From there, Sayako, Jun, and I became close friends.
But now, I have a problem. I have come to love Jun. Love him with every breath of my being. He… Shakes her head
Jun doesn’t see me that way. He has eyes for Sayako-chan. Fights to keep it together
Normally, I wouldn’t mind. But, I can’t ignore it this time. Jun is in danger. If he goes out with Sayako…
No! I don’t want Jun-kun to die! I… I… I love him too much for that!
What am I going to do? He won’t listen to me about Sayako anymore. Oh no. She’s got him wrapped around her finger. Nothing negative about her will get through. She’s an angel in his eyes.
It’s not just that. Even if Sayako-chan was out of the picture, someone else would try and steal Jun-kun away from me!
Trembles and shakes her head I don’t know! I just don’t want to end up invisible to Jun-kun as well. I’m tired of being unnoticed. It was okay before that night Sayako came to my room. But now, I can’t risk losing Jun-kun to Sayako or death!
But, I don’t know what to do. Help me.
