Sho found a wholesome smile spreading across his face, she would think so much of something as simple as feeding. Now he could openly see how cute it was and express so. Instead he still just observed and smiled, not adding to how red she became this time. They were out soon enough.
As he looked around he shook his head a little bit. "Kat-san would probably like just about anything you got her, since it's from you."He knew she would probably see something like this as something to over think about, he would too probably, but the simplest things were going to be the best things in this case. Kat was obviously just excited to be seen as her friend. Especially being on the Kat-chan basis with her, even that just made him smile. "You had the shops lined up, we can just look in all of them, we'll find something."
Naturally, she had no problem with just having some ramen, otherwise she probably would have said something, but she did enjoying having some variation or local food when it was possible. Otherwise you so easily missed out on some good food you would never be able to try anywhere else.
Hearing that he liked the plan, she smiled softly, happy that he liked it. "Then it's settled," she replied, already wondering what to get Kat-chan. Perhaps he could help her because she honestly had no idea what people liked or wanted as a souvenir.
She was pulled from her thoughts when he spoke and held up the noodles for her. Her face went bright red as it was essentially him feeding her and that was something she hadn't really prepared for. With her head still bright red she slowly leaned over to eat the noodles. Slowly she swallowed. "They're... good," she agreed, still dying slightly.
She did eat some more, but soon they were on to the shopping district. Looking around at the many shops, she wondered where to start. "So... where do we start? What do you think Kat-chan woul like?" she asked unsure, never having done this before.
He was simple, the bowl was assembled and it was their noodles and their bowl, so he thought it was easy enough to pick. He couldn't really help what he was going to eat, it was what he wanted, and he'd had a whole meal, while she sort of ate some. Once she had laid out the plan for them he nodded a bit. He knew that she was able to read him well, but sometimes it was..well it wasn't like he could say, she had clearly been thinking of it all day. "It's nothing. I think it's a good plan, we can get stuff for everyone." Of course he couldn't say he was thinking of a gift for her, and also of the hotel, that he especially couldn't mention, she'd go red all over again and it seemed to have finally left her mind now that they were just having fun together once more.
"Here at least try some ramen, their noodles are good."He said holding the noodles up to her closing in on her mouth, obviously just so she would try them.
It wasn't too long before they finished with their meal anyway and they were off to the shops. Now he just had to figure out how to get something without her knowing it.
She shook her head slightly. "There are so many different kinds of ramen and you just want a bowl and some meat," she remarked, though she was one to try the local food. Once they had ordered and their food came she still wasn't too hungry, even if it looked delicious. His remark earned him a shrug. "I just don't need to eat as much as you," she pointed out, not feeling like this was a bad thing, but couldn't help a small chuckle at how he was able to eat and pout at the same time. Still, she slowly began to eat, though at a much slower rate than him.
"So after this we should get the souvenirs. There are some nice shops not too far from here," she told him before noticing that he seemed to be fairly absent minded at the moment, "What are you thinking about?" She did wonder though what she could get Kat-chan. She had never really needed to get anyone a souvenir and honestly didn't know what was standard or what one got a friend.
As they sat down and she asked him what he'd be eating he offered a small shrug to her. "Whatever big bowl of ramen and meat they want to give me Kyo-chan." He informed her, looking over the options, it seemed they had their own local combo for ramen as well so he'd probably be doing something similar to her. Once they ordered their food and began to eat he looked to her. "You weren't so hungry again huh?"He pouted a little bit, eating his own noodles somehow still continuing his pout.
He didn't know what exactly he would get for all the other's, maybe it would be easier if he only had to buy something for Kat-san like she did. Well her too..he had to get her a gift somehow too didn't he..that would be kind of difficult, maybe he should wait until they got back for him to do that? But then what if she already had one for him when they stay tonight? If they stay...well they probably were weren't they.
Her face flushed slightly when he teased her about the tower. "They are fun and you have a great view from them," she pointed out, adding in her head that this was mostly from manga knowledge.
Listening to what he said, she nodded. "We can do that," she agreed, not being all too hungry, but if he was she was fine with that. He was a guy after all. Seeing the ramen place he pointed out, she nodded. "Sure, let's eat there," she agreed, not really having a concrete plan where they would eat. She had purposefully left that part blank since it did always depend on the mood, weather and whatnot.
Once they were at the shop they sat down in a booth and she looked at the menu, quickly deciding for a local specialty. At least it seemed like a good idea to try something local, if you are going to be there. "So what are you going to eat?" she asked, looking to him curiously.
He shook his head with a small chuckle, wondering if she had just memorized that list by now. "And again with the tower.."He teased, knowing he referred to that as one of her manga tropes. "I am hungry..So we can get food, then souvenirs and probably something for our friends, and then go up on the tower to look around." He wondered how she'd do with the heights, actually getting a little surprise about it now that he thought more on it, but he supposed they'd find out. "Mm.."He muttered spotting a ramen-house of some sort, that seemed to be right up their alley, and would keep things still familiar and friendly. "Ramen then?"He asked, wondering if she would have a different idea as to what they should do, maybe she had the trip going a certain way in her mind that he wouldn't want to mess up in any way by being..well thick or..not romantic or something, he didn't want to think that though since that would be the beginning of getting into his own head.
Considering all the other things that could have been planned, she considered herself fairly restrained in that regard. She hadn't booked a hotel, mostly because the idea alone made her head nearly explode, and she didn't have a timetable or anything so that she considered this fairly free. The train ride was fun with talking and some snacking on the brought lunches and soon they were at their destination.
Once off the train, she too stretched, glad that it was over. It was a lot of sitting and a lot of people in a confined space, not terrible, but bad enough for the likes of her. Seeing him offer his arm to her, she smiled softly, though her head turned bright red as she took it. "Well, we could eat a proper lunch, if you are hungry, check out the souvenir shops nearby or go check out the tower closer to the center of the city. There is a nice view from up there," she suggested, wondering what he would most like to do. She was fine with any of them, naturally as she had made the list.
He figured something along those lines of response was coming, always having some way to justify herself. He noticed that she hadn't seemed to pick up on what he was trying to further tease her about, which was okay it wasn't as if he wasn't thinking on it as well and he didn't necessarily want to be too much more. He did find it amusing how she 'hadn't planned much ahead' but really she pretty much planned out the entire day. He enjoyed the train ride himself, glad to be relaxed and having fun with her.
Once they did finally get off the train he stretched out and looked over to her. "So what's first captain?"He asked her smiling a bit as he offered his arm out for her to take. He knew it was still too bright out to view any Christmas decorations all lit up, like this town was famous for. So he wondered what she had in mind for the first stop, possibly food or something.
His teasing did not help her face and the flushing at all. Even if the walk to the station was a relaxing calm with only a few words exchanged, it didn't change the blush on her cheeks. Still, it felt nice to do this. Being together didn't seem to change that they got along.
When they arrived at the station she sat down beside him on the bench. Hearing the question, she looked to him. "I didn't plan that much. Just the train, when we arrived and what attractions and places to visit are where, how far away they are and what would be the best order in which to visit them," she replied, not understanding the further implication he was talking about.
Once the train came they got on and it was fairly relaxing. The normal talking and joking was fun. She in turn pointed out that in a crowd like this on a train it was unlikely that anyone would want to interact with her so she was mostly okay with it.
"Suuure you don't know."He chuckled a little bit. It seemed his face was able to calm during their walk to the station, whereas her's did not seem to, clearly something was on her mind too. It was an okay silence between them, other than a few comments as usual, it was nice again, being best of friends and in a relationship seemed to work so much better when he didn't overthink.
As they arrived at the station he took a seat on one of the benches and looked up to her gaining a small grin, he knew she apparently planned a lot of the day, "How much of the day have you planned? How far ahead?" He decided to tease her, knowing that could go far ahead. He did now realize what she was probably thinking about now, cause she clearly had something on her mind.
Soon enough the train did arrive, probably a fair ride ahead of them, and it was just more time for them to talk as they normally did anyway, though he always pointed out how silly it was that she could deal with crowds as long as they weren't in a house and being a party.
His question made her thoughtful. "Hm... I mean, I packed us a lunch and some things to drink...," she began, her organized self coming through, but stopped abruptly when he mentioned the mangas, "I don't know what you are talking about." Her face turned the deepest shade of red imaginable as she too recalled the night before. Though truly, how else was she supposed to understand people?
She had a nice winter jacket on, a hat and gloves. For her it was a little chilly. Seeing his bag, it was clear that they both sort of silently had agreed to spend the night. Did that mean they would do that? It kept her face in a consistent flush that she couldn't hide.
Hearing him suggest to go, she nodded, beginning to follow after him. Feeling his hand take hers, she smiled ever so slightly, though her face stayed red. The walk to the train station wasn't too long and soon they were there. Checking the large clock there, she nodded. "Perfect. The train should arrive in 20 minutes. Right on time," she said softly, having everything planned for the trip.
Sho looked to her and shook his head a little bit, "Mhm..any last minute things we might need for the train ride, or for in the city that you can think of? Gotta stock up on your secret..dirty manga's for the ride on the train or are you content with the one's you keep at home?" Clearly he hadn't forgotten how poorly she defended herself last night against possibly having some risque stuff to read, though again that might have just been him flustering her, he didn't actually know, but he certainly seemed certain he was right. Regardless, he was just teasing her about it in the end.
He had his winter cap on, a decent enough jacket, and he was still starting to get a little scruffy around the face, though he too had a bag, and he wondered if they both had assumed they'd be staying the night..well that was the plan wasn't it? He didn't really want to think twice on it now, after all, they were just supposed to enjoy each other, and he had been very good at letting his head get in the way of that so far. "Uh..let's get going."He stated and started to walk, knowing he was on the verge of thinking too much. "Oh."He slightly mumbled out, taking her hand into his own, feeling his face heat up a small amount of red..how did this happen to him again? he wasn't the shy one here.
Her face only got redder the more he spoke. "I am not. What kind would that be?" she replied adamantly, though her face clearly spoke another language. Never in a million years would she show those to anyone, at least that's what she thought right now.
Hearing him speak about Kat, she gave a shrug. "I suppose so," she agreed thoughtfully. She always found it hard to say whether they were friends or not. She supposed according to Kat they were.
The rest of the night was fairly uneventful. As usual they ended up watching a movie that was terrible, perhaps snuggled a little closer in their comfort fort than they had before, but other than that it was normal. Like always he went home afterwards.
At a later day they were heading to the city. It was hard to say what would happen between them, if they stayed the night at the city. In a manga the two leads shared a bed and well, often led to more. Was that what would happen here? She honestly couldn't say.
Either way, she had her bag ready so they could head out when he rang her doorbell. Opening the door, she shouldered her bag and gave a nod. "Ready," she replied as she stepped outside and locked up, "Looks like it's another snowy day today. The train leaves in an hour so we should have plenty of time to get to the station." She liked to have everything planned so that nothing could go wrong. Missing the train was not an option.
"Oh yea? Not my interest...are you sure you aren't just hiding some things from me, maybe you own one's you would want people to see huh?"He knew his grin was growing, but he doubted that would stop her from trying to avoid or not answer the question directly, which could implicate her.
Hearing her talk about his friends and their group he shook his head a little bit, "Oh don't act like you didn't get all buddy buddy with Kat-san." He knew at the very least those two were their own friends, much to Kat's efforts, but still.
The rest of the night seemed as normal as any other, which was nice to get back to, maybe they stayed a little closer to each other, but they were able to keep their friendship as it had been as well, sure it was one night, but after he went home he was sure they both felt good about it. Now that it was another day though, they would most likely just be going ahead with their plan and heading into the city, or staying the night in the city like they had decided. Still through, he assumed, no fault of his own he couldn't stop actually thinking about how manga-esque their situation had become, was she expecting...well everything to happen..or anything? He had a hard time knowing when she wanted a kiss, and she got a lot more confident when she wanted something it seemed, or just didn't think of it, not that he'd mind seeing that again either.
There was plenty of time to think on these things, but now he was at her door and walking inside, shaking off a bit of the cold and it seemed to be snowing. "Are you ready?"He asked her.
