From that fated meeting on Jun found himself going over there at the same time just to see her and chat with her again. Miah was delighted to see him come by, but unsure of what it means. Miah always doubts herself when it comes to liking people, becasue she gets afraid to be hurt and get her hopes up. And to hope for something more from Jun is like dating a Hollywood star, impossible. But for now enjoying these moments is enough for her. After a week of this meet ups, work started again for Jun. He couldn't come by anymore and didn't contact her either. After things settled down again it had already been 2 weeks since then and he decided to email her. He email her asking her how she was. When she emailed back she asked, "I'm sorry who is this?" Jun confused responded, "This is Matsumoto Jun?" A minute later. "Oh...sorry I didn't save your number becasue I wasn't sure if I should. But yeah I'm good. Just tired," Miah responded. Jun never heard someone deleting numbers because they shouldn't keep it before. But he guessed it was her being considerate of him. So he responded "It's okay to save my email. You didn't have to consider that. Anyway I wanted to ask you if you would like to have dinner tonight? You hungry? Since you said your tired." There was no repsonse until 10 minutes later. "Sure! I can do dinner. I can be ready by 7pm. Is that okay?" Unsure of why she took so long to respond. "Can we meet at the place I'll send the details later?" Miah responded, "Okay. Great till then." So it was set.
When she recieved the email during her lunch she was with her co-workers inside the break room. It was getting colder now so lunch on the patio was no longer an option. She found out the email was from Jun she felt happy that he still had her email. She didn't want evidence of a scandal that the reporters out there might make of it. So she deleted his contact. But when Jun said it was okay to save it she did so. But to say she didn't need to consider deleting it, what did he mean by that? Did he mean there is nothing between them? Then why the invite to dinner? All these thoughts flooded her head. The her co -workers asked her if something was wrong. Unsure of what to do she asks them about her situation, without using Jun's name. "Well I think he likes you. I mean he comes by during your lunches and then asks you for dinner. There must be something there," one co-workers says. The other co-worker said, "You need to ask him. I mean if he's not going to contact you for weeks and then ask you to dinner, it's like he thinks he can pick up from where you left off. Like he thinks you would wait for him. And that's not fair to you." She thought more about what the last co-worker said. She understands Jun's work is demanding that's why he can't contact her as much. Also she doesn't mind no contact for a long time. But to ask him to define a relationship, she never wanted to be that kind of girl. But she has to, she needs to know so she can know her place, if she has a place, in his life and him in hers. Cause she knows she felt something too. So before she went back to work she responded and agreed to dinner. When he emailed her back to meet at the resturant. She felt a little disappointed because that would not make it a date maybe. Either way she planned to ask him.
As Miah got to the resturant Jun was already there. "Why didn't they seat you yet?" Miah asked. "I didn't want to sit yet untill you get here," Jun answered. Miah beamed at the response as they seated them. Things were going well. They picked up the conversation from when they last saw each other. An hour into the conversation she decided to finally ask. "Ah Jun can I ask you something?" Jun paused a little and took a sip of his drink. "Sure ask me anything." "What are we? (Jun looks at her in mid sip) I mean, I really don't want to be the kind of needy girl who ask guys to define the relationship. Cause I wouldn't like it either. But I need to know because I feel like I'm getting mixed signals here. And I don't want to get my hopes up. And I'm a releationship kind of girl. So I need to know we are in the same page. Because I like you. And we have a great time together. So....yeah." As Jun puts his cup down he looks straight into Miah's eyes and says, " I don't spend my free time with just anyone." That was enough. That moment when they locked eyes, said it all. He felt exactly like Miah, feeling for each other to be more. Miah no longer question him and they left the resturant happy. Seeing they didn't have a car, the reason why Jun wanted to meet at the resturant, He walked her home. As they walked he grabbed her hand, and a connection they both never felt before pass through them. They both never wanted to let go.
