Yu pressed his hand against the door, but just as they were set to enter, he felt Chie’s absence. Concerned, he turned around, smiling amusingly as Chie stared pointedly up at the faded sign.
“We both can’t go in if you’re out here, Chie,” Yu called out to her.
Yu’s voice seemed to pull her out of her thoughts as her gaze diverted to Yu’s direction with a furrowed brow. “You can’t be serious.”
“Hm?” Yu innocently tilted his head to the side slightly. “What’s wrong?”
“I thought when you suggested we find help for our, uh, problem, I didn’t think you meant,” Chie looked back up at the sign, dismay still stagnant on her face, “The bookstore.”
Yu suppressed a small chuckle. “Hey, books don’t judge and offer a variety of great advice.” With Chie’s skepticism furthered, he added, “I learned how to fish and catch bugs from the books here, things I never learned in the city. I’m sure there’s at least one book that will help us with our… emotional problem.”
At their wit's end, the emotionally impaired duo seek advice in books and each other in order to reach their feelings to their intended.
