"_______-san! Good morning!" Your Japanese friend, Kiku called, running over to you. He looked so cute in his grey beach shorts and baggy red top, along with red converse and a sweatband around his small forehead.
You smiled at him, waving.
"Good morning, Kiku! Ready to train?" You greeted, stretching your strong muscles. He nodded, stopping next to you.

Kiku agreed and took of running, with you following close behind. You both jogged into the woods, sun glittering through the autumn leaves.
You looked over to your Japanese friend. He looked very content jogging through the calm woods, and seemed lost in thought. You smiled, admiring him.

Ever since your first day of junior high school the two if you became very good friends due to you both sharing a huge interest in anime.
Kiku was always a very shy and thoughtful Japanese boy. Although when it came to anime he would liven up and he could talk about it forever and ever, as could you. This is how Kiku usually acted in a nut shell, but lately he has been acting...strange. Specifically starting this week. He blushed a lot, stuttered, and seemed to sweat whenever you were around now.
