Greenery Day (National Holiday)
A light breeze gently rustled the branches overhead as Akemi watched from below, head bent back and eyes glazed over with a mild fascination. The trees seemed to come alive under her scrutinous gaze, each quivering frond a fragment of the breathing whole. She felt a bit like a tree herself today, the skirt of her green jumper dress fluttering much like the leaves she had fixed her gaze on. It seemed only appropriate to meet at the park on Greenery Day. Likewise, it seemed only appropriate to become like greenery on Greenery Day. She doubted, however, that this was an opinion generally shared by the public, and if it was, she found it unlikely that many would engage it with quite as much enthusiasm as she had.
An assortment of every flowery and fruity hairclip she could find in her room adorned her bangs, making a garden of her red tresses, which had been gathered into a lopsided bun and topped off with a plastic daisy. Below that, the vividly colored shirt of cartoon flowers she wore competed for equal attention and would likely have won were it not for the bright but considerably calmer green dress she wore over it, toning down the explosion of color. However, this peace amid the chaos was quickly broken at her legs by a pair of green and white striped socks, finished off with multi-colored tennis shoes. [Outfit]
It was, in all honesty, a tamer look for her than usual. Curious glances were still thrown her way, certainly, and she still stuck out like a sore thumb in quiet Hikarizaka, but only about half as much as usual. Missing were the stacks of bracelets that climbed toward her elbows and the layers of mismatched socks and accessories. This was probably for the best... After all, her goal for the day was to play with the puppy, not immediately scare it off.
Although... The fact that Sunohara hadn't been scared off by their initial meeting still came as somewhat a surprise. If he could survive an entire date with her, he truly would be an oddity worth keeping an eye on. Her lips curved into a dubious smile, and she let out a quiet chuckle, finally breaking contact with the branches above to glance over at the nearby park clock.
Assuming he hadn't backed out, the poor boy would soon arrive, and the fated encounter between puppy and alien would commence... What a strange and wondrous tale that would be. Could the universe withstand it? Perhaps reality would cave in on itself before the day ended, though the beginning of Golden Week certainly seemed an inopportune time to cause the destruction of time and space... Ah, best not to overwhelm her misguided suitor then.
Her mysterious smile still gracing her features, Akemi closed her eyes and hummed.
We'll whittle the days away~
