A Fashion Designer's Dilemma

Chapter Text

After a couple of days passed by that event. The days at school became normal again or as normal as they can. There are still gossips but not as much as that day. Yuki tried to act normal but it is noticeable that Yuki kept on cautiously scanning his surroundings, trying to find those judgmental people like his bullies on and out of St.Flora Campus. Everyone noticed but didn’t care that much thinking that Yuki was trying to find inspiration. They know that Yuki sometimes wants to find some inspiration outside his magazines and photos on the internet.

But Yuki’s troupe, the Summer Troupe were perspectives of any change to each other like Muku’s habit of shoujo and his injury, Kumon’s anxiety, Kazunari’s artistic endeavors, Misumi’s triangle hunt, and Tenma’s overworked habits. So who will notice anything, it would be them as they noticed it pretty much straight away.

Kazunari and Misumi thought of an idea to help Yuki’s behavior. Kazunari remembered a cafe near the theater. He was supposed to go with Juza but their schedules clashed and it was a sweet and cute cafe that is aligned with Yuki’s aesthetics. Kazunari asked Misumi to join him and help to make Yuki smile.


It was Kazunari and Misumi’s goal to make Yuki join them So they asked him one day. It was a weekend in the dorm. Some troupe members were inside their rooms, while some of the troupe members were chilling in the living room. Those were Hisoka, sleeping on the sofa while laying on Tsumugi, who is reading a novel. Sakuya listens to Citron, who is telling an outrageous story about him being a Jaguar tamer. Yuki watches a romantic drama as well as Taichi and Homare as usual, telling poems that are weird and unique.

As the calm ambiance of the room was shattered by a loud voice. Kazunari and Mizumi entered the room. Immediately asking for Yuki.

“Yukki, you want to join us? We found a cute cafe on the sidewalk before the theater. Wanna come?” Kazunari suddenly asked.

“Kazu said there is Sankaku there. Yuki, you should come. ” Misumi said while trying to pull Yuki away from the sofa.

“You could join too, Taicchan. It’s trendy and popular with people, maybe you could get a girl there.” Kazunari told Taichi.

Taichi immediately answered,” I’m in! Maybe I can be popular for this.”

“You’re being delusional, you dumb dog” Yuki replied. After saying that Yuki saw Taichi with his invisible dog ears and tail while pouting at him.

“That’s not cute Yukki, but you’re always cute,” Kazunari told Yuki with a similar image on Taichi. With regret bubbling in Yuki’s chest. He gave up and replied defeatedly, “Fine. I’ll join you three.”

With the answer, Sumi and Kazu were looking. “Yay! ” as they high-five in the air and happily celebrate and pull Yuki and Taichi to the cafe.


They went there and you could see that it was bombarded with cute decorations and many people. It was easy to see that it is a famous cafe. The three sat down inside the cafe and Kazunari stood up and told them, “I’m going to the front to order us drinks. Does anyone have any preference?”

Misumi exclaimed, “Onigiri! Sankkaku, Kazu.”

“Me, the most popular drink. The one that girls would buy”, Taichi finished his order.

“And you, Yukki?” Kazunari questioned as Yuki was staring outside the window staring at a parfait that a couple was eating. Yuki was looking at the parfait with a sad gaze in his eyes.

Being curious, Kazunari repeated his question, “Do you want that, Yukki-chan? ”

Yuki snapped out, ”Huh. What did you say McExtrovert?”

Kazunari with his artistic sense said, “You looked interested in that. It looked just like you with the pink and cute style.”

Taichi added, “Yeah, you looked like you wanted that.”

Yuki answered back, “No one asking you, dumb dog.”

Taichi with his hands in hurt expression, “Ouch! that hurts.”

“But you want that right?” Kazunari questioned for the last time.

“Sure then. It’s not because I want it but both of you want it.” Yuki answered defeatedly.

“Then start chatting and I’ll be back.” Kazunari left the table and Misumi and Taichi chatted and Yuki started listening with them.


As the conversation continued, it drifted from school to triangle hunting to the other troupes with some remarks from Yuki. When they went to the topic that everyone wanted to know is the play. Izumi hasn’t said anything or even Sakyo or their troupe leaders about it. As both of them were not listening to the daily meeting.

Taichi sat by the opposite of Yuki, “When is the new play, Yuki-chan?”

Misumi in excitement questioned with his eyes sparkling, “Are there any triangles, ne Yuki?”

Yuki tilted his head and said, “I’m not sure Taichi but Kanchou told us that she will announce it next week. Did you forget it, dog? I thought you were listening.”

“I was but what did you say my name?!” Taichi interjects.

“No, I didn’t you dumb dog. You must be hearing things” Yuki retorted back sass he is.

Taichi continued asking that question to Yuki. While Yuki is starting to smile, Misumi suddenly said, “Yay! Yuki‘s back to normal. ” Both of them immediately faced Misumi with a confused expression said,


And as Misumi’s immediate answer, “Sankkaku!” with his finger pointing at Kazunari that is trying to balance the drinks and food they ordered. Taichi immediately helped Kazunari at bringing the drinks to the table and as Kazunari sit,

“What are you all talking about?”

“Oh, it was about the new play,” Taichi answered.

“Is there any news about that though?” While drinking, Kazunari drank his drink.

“I don’t really know about it. But I think that it would be a mixed one again.”

Yuki keeps touching the rim of his parfait. While thinking of an answer to the question Kazunari said. He didn't remember that much during the conversation about the play. What he knows about the play was close to none especially since Tsuzuru is currently inside his and Masumi’s shared room. Planning and creating the plot for the next play.

That conversation continued until they finished their orders from the shop. They also bought extras from the store to give. Misumi is playing around with his triangles from the shop and Taichi is having a chat with Kazunari. As they are walking back to their dorm Yuki asked.

“Why did you bring me here?”

Kazunari replied, “Yukki-chan I brought you here because I know that it’s upright your ally and you look kind of sad.”

Giving the triangle napkin to Yuki by Misumi, “A Sankaku for a happy Yuki.”

Shocked by the revelation, Yuki’s eyes look glossy and he smiled for the first time during the week.

Making all of them smile with Yuki while walking to their home. Chatting with each other as time passes by.
