As they had planned, Gou and (Name) stopped by at a supermarket after the swim club to buy ingredients for (Name)’s cooking lesson with Gou. The two then walked back to Gou’s place. Fortunately, Rin isn’t home, since he was at the dorms with Sousuke. This would make it easier for the girls, they could cook with no interruptions and no worries that the surprise would be ruined.
When they got to Gou’s house, (Name) was greeted by a fat white cat, who meowed and rubbed himself against her leg.
Gou giggled, “That’s Steve. He never likes my brother, he is so going to flip if he knows Steve likes you more than him.”
“He seems so loveable though,” (Name) bent down and scratched Steve behind the ear, hearing it purr.
“To me and you, yes. To my brother, he would either scratch or bite him, or just ignore him entirely.”
(Name) stood back up and looked around, “Is no one home?”
“My mom went to a relative’s place, she will be home later, but we can just start now. She trusts me with the kitchen”
“So…?” (Name) shifted hesitantly.
And that was what happened roughly 23 hours ago. As of now, (Name) is borrowing the home ec room of Iwatobi high to cook the tonkatsu. Gou was a great teacher, and she clearly had a lot of experience in the kitchen, so she probably helped her mom a lot.
(Name) recalled Gou’s mother. She had came home when they were done with cooking the tonkatsu. Her mother looked a lot more like Rin than Gou, so she must have taken after his father.
The woman had welcomed (Name) with open arms and even asked her to stay for dinner. (Name) had been hesitant at first, but after some comvincing, she stayed at Gou’s place for dinner, eating the result of their cooking earlier. It tastes pretty good for her first time making this dish.
(Name) had a lot of experience in cooking, considering the fact that she lives alone, so she had to cook for herself. However, she never cooked it this way. Gou’s recipe is certainly better.
Right now, (Name) had prepared everything, and was cooking it alone in the home ec room. Everyone else was in their club doing other activities, so she wouldn’t be bothered by anyone.
She sighed to herself as she carefully placed the flour covered pork into the frying pan. She was cooking for a friend, why was she so nervous? It had tasted good yesterday and she followed all the steps, so it should turn out right this time.
(Name) mentally checked things off the list in her mind as her eyes wondered around the table top, looking at the lunchbox she prepared. Aside from the rice and the now cooking pork, she had added other vegetables and side dishes, to make it more colourful. She planned to get the coke later as she pass by a vending machine on the way.
One the pork was done, she took it out of the frying pan and cut it evenly, before placing it in the lunch box. I Hope he likes this…
She packed everything up and cleaned up her work space, and then proceeded to head off towards the station.
Gou and the boys are still in the swimming pool, so she would have to walk alone to the station alone, not that she mind. However, she was missing the company of her maroon haired friend. She always knew how to calm her nerves.
Once on the train, (Name) took a deep breath and settled down on an empty seat. She knew Sousuke is probably still practicing with his team, but she wouldn’t need to wait. Besides, watching him swim can be fun too.
Arriving at Samezuka Academy, she went inside and immediately made her way to the swimming area. It was the indoor pool where they had their joint practices together a few times already, so the way there was familiar to (Name).
Her pace slowed as she went through the doors. She hesitantly peeked through the windows and searched for the dark hair belonging to Sousuke. When she found him, she quietly snuck in and sat down at the empty chairs available near the door she walked through.
Her grip on the lunchbox tightened as she looked down, shy from all the questioning looks the guys were giving her. What is a girl doing around here? They seemed to ask with their gaze.
I hope practice ends quickly…
“Yooo! (Name)-chan!” she flinched at the voice. She knew this voice ver well indeed.
“Hello, Momo-kun,” she greetedback politely, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear
“Are you alone? Where is Gou? Oh do you want me to call Sousuke-senpai for you?”
“U-uhh.. Its alright I’ll wait for the practice-”
“Okay, if you say so.. Anyway where is Gou? And the rest of the guys? Isn’t that why you come here?”
“Gou is at practice with the guys, and they’re still in school. And I’m here to see Sousuke, its something I have to give him to return a favor.”
“Aw.. I miss Gou..” Momo genuinely looked sad with that pout. He wasn’t too bad if he would just tone down that energy a little b-
“Oh and you are pretty cute yourself, but Sousuke-senpai told me to stay off you because he have his eyes on-”
“Momo….” a deeper voice resonated behind the firey haired male. Momo slowly turned around.
Behind him towered a familiar black haired man, towel draped around his neck, and still dripping wet with chlorine induced water. He wasn’t exactly glaring at Momo, but with his height and with the absence of his friendly smile, it was more than enough to make him look intimidating.
“Oh.. I thought you were swimming, senpai.” Momo laughed nervously, scratching the back of his head, “I was just talking to (Name).”
Sousuke said nothing, he only raised an eyebrow and Momo backed away slowly, still smiling sheepishly, “I guess I’ll go back to.. Swimming, yeah.”
Once he was gone, (Name) giggled. Staring sympathetically at Momo. “He wasn’t so bad. You know.” She said to the teal eyed male.
“I thought he was flirting with you or something.” Now that Momo was back in the pool with Nitori, Sousuke dropped his scary act snd rubbed the back of his neck guiltily.
“No, he isn’t. Don’t worry about me.” (Name) smiled up at him.
“So why are you here?” Sousuke asked, towelling off his hair and sitting on the chair beside her.
“I.. uhh….” Now that Sousuke was closer to her, she couldn’t help but feel her heart rate quicken. It was beating really loudly too, and she hoped Sousuke couldn’t hear it. (Name) was suddenly reminded of the time at the hotel, alone with Sousuke who happened to also be shirtless, just like now.
“I g-got you something.. As a t-thank you for helping me with math.”
Sousuke chuckled and ruffled her hair, “I told you it wasn’t necessary.”
“But I felt like I owed you, so I did get you something anyway.” (Name) tidied her hair. The lunchbox felt heavy in her bag. When should she give him?
“I-I think its better if you finish practice first, though.” (Name) looked away, anywhere but at him. “Wouldn’t the captain be mad?”
“Practice is almost over, ten more minutes or so. I’ll just tell Rin I’ll do one more lap and I’ll be done for the day.”
True to his word, Sousuke went up to Rin after talking a little bit more with (Name). He then did one lap and disappeared inside the locker rooms. Rin also saw her and waved, no questions asked. This made (Name) wonder if Gou had told her brother about the plan, maybe she had. (Name) hoped Gou did not mention anythin about her feelings, because she was not even so sure about it herself.
A few minutes later, Sousuke exited the locker room fully dressed and wearing his Samezuka jacket. How do boys shower and do everything so fast?
He sat back down beside her, and (Name) fumbked to get her bag open. She took out the lunchbox and gave it to Sousuke. His teal eyes seemed to sparkle as he opened it and saw that it was his favorite food.
“I practiced the recipe with Gou,” (Name) shrugged, “she was the one who told me you liked tonkatsu.”
“This looks so good.” He said, as he immediately ate it. Sousuke didn’t even realize how hungry he was. Practice was really energy consuming.
He finished it in only a handful of minutes, and (Name) froze. I forgot the coke!! Stupid stupid!
“Uh..” She started, “S-sorry I forgot to get you some coke. Gou told me you like coke.”
“Don’t worry about it,” Sousuke smiled at her, his eyes gentle and there it was again, the little something different that shimmered in his eyes. “You are a great cook by the way. You nailed the recipe very well, I really love it. You would make a lovely wife.”
“T-thanks.” (Name) could feel her cheeks heating up.
“You should cook for me more,” he said, but then realized he sounded demanding, so he added, “N-not exactly should, I mean if you feel like it, or if you had time. I don’t want to force myself on you or something.”
(Name) didn’t know what to answer, so she only giggled and hoped whatever awkwardness this is would pass soon. “A-anyway, I have to get back, I have.. Homework. Yeah. Thank you for being a great math teacher, Sousuke. I’ll call you when I have more math stuff to worry about.”
(Name) got up stiffly. Why am I so nervous?
“I’ll walk you home,” Sousuke stood up too.
“B-but your dorms are right here.”
“I wouldn’t feel right if I let you go home alone,” Sousuke fixed his jacket, “besides, you still have a stalker on the loose.”
Right. The stalker. (Name) had almost forgot about it since he or she stayed silent. She haven’t received any creepy mails this couple of days.
“Alright,” was all she said, as she walked up to the exit, Sousuke trailing behind her.

Your KNB match is Kuroko Tetsuya.
You first met each other because of a book. You often came to the exact same spot to read and one day Kuroko saw you, engrossed in the writing. He thought it’d be weird to just approach you out of the blue, but every time he was sitting there, you happened to appear too. Maybe it was fate that one time you dropped your book and he picked it up for you, but you started to talk ever since. He seemed genuinely interested in what you were reading and you happily explained. Since then he often asked you questions because then you got cutely excited. Your personalities seem to go well together and he patiently waits until you’re fully comfortable with him. He’s very supportive of your dream and also very interested in your explaining about literature. You two usually have the best time by yourselves in peace and quiet rather than going out. Whenever you mention opening your own bookstore, he smiles and assures he’ll be your regular guest.
Your Free match is Makoto Tachibana.
You knew each other from high school, being classmates and he remembered you as a shy, quiet but also very friendly person. When few years later you bumped into each other, he wasn’t surprised at all to see a book in your hands. Before you knew it, you two have already talked for an hour about old times and what both of you were up to these days. Hearing that you’re studying literature he felt impressed and asked a lot about how it’s like and how you’re doing with it. Makoto can’t help but smile widely at your eyes sparkling from excitement. He admires your passion and when you tell him about your future project, he’s not only happy for you but also offers to help. When you two start meeting more after that day, he never forces you to go anywhere and lets you decide. Whenever there happens to be a lot of people, he shields you from them and generally makes sure you’re always comfortable.
