And once again Elyss managed to surprise Hanako. Go out? On earth? A restaurant?
"Wouldn't we need gigais…" she began, a really stupid question, but she couldn't think of anything better. She was interrupted when Elyss announced to pick Hanako up, same time next week. It wasn't a suggestion or a question, it an information.
A bit like a sleepwalker Hanako followed Elyss back to the locker room, where the redhead was already dressing. There was something Hanako was definitely missing. The insight came slowly, trickled into Hana's consciousness like sand through an hourglass. But finally it came.
"Wait, did you just ask me on a date?" she cried out.
The locker room was empty. A naked Hanako, towel in one hand, hairbrush in the other, was standing there, staring at the empty room. She had been so deep in thought that hadn't realised Elyss was gone already.
A date? With Elyss? That would be...Hanako's first date. If she was honest to herself, it was the last thing she'd have expected from the distant redhead. Maybe it was something different? Dinner between friends? On earth? Only the two of them? Yeah...sure. Hanako didn't even believe it herself. She felt excited by the thought.
When Hanako opened her locker and grabbed her shihakusho a thought crossed her mind.
'Heavens...I have nothing to wear.'
