Kenji sat beneath a withering blossom tree, the pink petals fell softly onto his head. There was a cold breeze, with a scent of morning due but it was nothing compared to the smell of the crisp salt sea of Cornwall. As Kenji's mind drifted to the thought of his Mother's home he wondered whether he would ever truly be happy with life. So far all it had done was knock him down.

"Hey, Hima-san!"

His thought process was broken, he gazed up with a dizzy expression, it took him a few minuted to come back to reality. He noticed that she was flicking through his book.... rather than handing it straight back. He stood up.

"Here, you left this in the classroom."

Even though Yoshino had snapped the book shut, and came across slightly rude, Kenji gently took the book from her hands and stared into her red eyes, trying to find the right words to say. He wondered whether he had offended her in some way.

He chose to say nothing, rather he noticed the cherry blossoms that fell landed on her shoulder, they were the same colour as her hair. This was truly memorizing to him, she was standing there in front of him, she was being defensive but no matter which way he looked at it she was rather beautiful.

He soon snapped out of yet another daydream as she made indication of leaving:
"Your drawings are very good,"....."I couldn't help but notice the one you were making in Japanese Literature,"

He didn't quite catch the last part of what she had said, but as she turned away he felt an urge to continue the conversation.

'Sohma-San... I apologize that you had to come find me to give me this.... I should have been listening rather than doodling anyway.' He edged forward a little to catch up to her.
' The picture in literature, was what the Haiku said to me... I couldn't write it down so I drew it instead... the tiger can sometimes symbolism loneliness... but it is also beautiful just like the poem.... You can have it if you like?'

He really had no idea where all of that had come from or why he offered one of his poor drawings to her.
