I attempted some house cleaning the other day, and I must say, there’s something I’m very terrible at. Let me explain what had happened…
Honda-san had left to stay the night at Hanajima-san’s residence a couple of nights ago. While she was leaving, she noticed that the kitchen was a little messy. Not something to get excessively worried about, but, well, you know Honda-san. She almost didn’t leave. I didn’t want her to spend her night here cleaning up after us, so I insisted that I would clean up instead. With that said, I sent her on her way. It wasn’t much of a mess, but it was still something that shouldn’t be left unattended. With nothing more to do, I grabbed a mop, and started cleaning.
I never would have realized how unsanitary myself and everyone else (Excluding Honda-san) in this house is. In the kitchen, there were empty food packages left scattered all over the counter, the garbage was over flowing, and someone had treaded through the kitchen with muddy shoes on. I suspect it was Kyou, but it’s not polite to point fingers. I mopped up the prints, recycled the packages, and took out the trash.
Unfortunately, while I was taking the garbage outside, I stumbled over an object and fell. The garbage spilled all over the yard and myself, staining my clothes. I had refrained from yelling, and decided to investigate what I had tripped over. To my surprise, it was my own school bag. I was befuddled, because I didn’t remember leaving it out here. I collected the mess and proceeded with putting it in the garbage bin.
When I went back inside, I had a new task to complete; washing my clothes before the stain was permanent. This was a new experience for I have never washed laundry in my life. However, I have the common decency to read the directions for detergent, so I hadn’t caused the washing machine to over flow with suds. That was something to be thankful for. Now that I’ve actually done Laundry, it’s a lot easier then I once assumed.
That was a night I will never forget. Tripping over my own school bag has led me to come to a new conclusion: become a tidier person.
Many of us have been planning a trip to the Onsen recently. When and who, well, that’s still undecided, but Honda-san, Kyou, and myself are going for sure. I also hear that Hatori is taking a visit. I’m not entirely sure if he would have an enjoyable time, especially if Ayame learns about the plans. That would just cause Hatori’s relaxation to clatter. I had also spoke about the trip abruptly in front of Kakeru, and he now insists on coming with us. I can’t really say I can prevent that. He just! goes wherever he wishes to go!
One of the things that I fine most surprising is how he and I have bonded. I never would have thought that the two of us would actually become tolerable of one another, even though we do have our arguments now and then. Honestly, I don’t know what to think about him. The council certainly has been a rambunctious adventure, but when I look back at everything that has happened so far, I’m glad I decided to go through with it. All of the members have helped me open up in one way or another.
There is only one thing about joining the Student Council that saddens me. Ever since I started, it feels like Honda-san and myself are beginning to grow distant. I can’t be so sure, but there definitely is a shift of things. It isn’t anything bad; perhaps I’m just changing. At least she isn’t alone. Her and Kyou have almost always been together. I think I have a suspicion on what feelings are being shared between them! but it is foolish to jump to conclusions. I guess only time will tell.
Ah, Shigure just informed me that he got a call from Hatori. It seems he wishes to see me sometime soon. As of what, I am not sure, but I feel I can trust Hatori. This is rather puzzling. I wonder what he needs to talk to me about!
Momiji just came over to visit Honda-san. I think it’s best if I hide this journal away for now, before he discovers it. If he did find out that I was writing this, he’d insist on reading it.
That’s Momiji for you.
