Mizuki was a mess of emotions right now. Nervous. Excited. Terrified. And definitely way too stupid to notice the ongoing friction between the mysterious woman and Naomi. His heart leapt once he heard the woman's praise, although it wasn't directly aimed at him.

Struggling to fight off the butterflies in his stomach, he twirled his palms to his face and gaped at the bottle that moved along with it.

This was like a quest in an mmorpg! A beautiful NPC bestowing the player with an item...!

Mizuki chuckled to himself, feeling reassured that this was all just a dream. He didn't even notice the warmth that enveloped his fingertips the moment the bottle met in contact with his skin.

Being in the woman's company all night seemed kind of... cool, for better lack of words, but he really wanted to get the part of the dream where he would confess to Belle-senpai and get his happy ending. He would've jokingly called out 'Are you single?', but despite being a dream, it didn't feel right to joke around like that... instead, he asked a in quiet and awkward stutter...

"W-What's y-your name...? Who a-are you?"

If it was the younger Nakamura brother here instead of him, this would have resulted much differently – with disbelief or even a debate, and much more logical questions. In another world, he would've maybe even mock their actions.

Instead, standing here tonight was Mizuki Nakamura, and well, he was a simple boy with simple questions.

"Um... why are you helping us?"

ღ February 13: Midnight.

Takashi gave out the most wimpish response to the love potion by jumping in surprise and almost dropping the bottle in hand - coupled with a high-pitched scream. As if he couldn’t be any more embarrassing.

What was in his hand was no doubtingly a love potion. Although it being warm was indeed very… very... weird, and creepy, it was also strangely… reassuring, as if it was telling him that giving this to her would solve all his problems. That everything will be ok in the end. That he will be happy.

He looked back upon the stranger a little less nervously now. What he held in his hand was the key to his happiness, and it was given to him with no charge. With this, he wouldn’t be such a loser nerd. With this, he would finally get the girl of his dreams. Looking at the beautiful woman now, it was almost as if she was a...


“I’m sure the vast majority of you all here already know the answer to that question. I am a goddess.” Her answer gained a large positive response from the crowd. Her smile grew, revealing her pearl white teeth. “As for my name, I’d like to keep that private, for now.”

“The reason why I do this is simple: I sympathize with you humans. This is a tender age where humans are developing important social skills along with their own identity through interacting with their fellow peers. If these aspects aren’t developed properly, this will stun their emotional and mental growth into adulthood and may even carry on into later adulthood and beyond. As you can see, this can cause major problems to one’s ego as well as their means of communication in the future. It would be ill of me to allow such detriments to occur, especially if I can be of some help. An act of goodwill, if you believe so. I’m sure you all would like at least one aspect of your life to go smoothly, considering the many complications each and every one of you are facing right now - whether it’s deciding on a career, or which school to go to next, or problems regarding family and finance.”


More and more positive responses from the crowd. It seems that everyone has grown fond of this mysterious yet kind goddess.

Sayuri herself was completely captivated by her. The way she talked confidently yet tenderly and full of warmth and kindness. Her words that were so understanding of their problems. There was no doubt in her mind that the person in front of her was anything but a goddess. A goddess cast down from heaven to help the needy.

“Miss!” She sounded more confident now too, “How does the love potion work?”


“You and your partner of desire must both consume all the contents of this bottle. Whether it’s split half and half, 1/3rds and 2/3rds, is up to you. It is only mutual understanding if both of you partake in it, correct?”

”Yeah, yeah.” Naomi spoke out for the first time. With her hands crossed in front of her chest and her eyes rolled, she almost spat out each word she said. “You guys might have all night, but me and the guards don’t. I can only keep them asleep for a little bit longer so hurry up with the questions or you’ll get suspended.”

The group was excited with hope in their hands. They all seemed to look up the goddess now while some were even bold enough to throw Naomi dirty looks on their own. After Sayuri’s question, everyone else seemed content with just knowing how to get the partner of their dreams.

The goddess responded with yet another soft giggle. “If that is all, then I wish you all good luck. What happens afterwards is our little secret.” With one last smile, she sank deeper and deeper into the shadow of the building into she disappeared completely from sight.

”May true love conquer all.”


Once she disappeared, the crowd chatted wildly amongst one another about how the rumor is actually true, completely forgetting about a certain someone until she spoke up again.

”Excuse me,” Naomi spoke out in an even ruder tone than she did with the goddess. “If you want to get caught then by all means go ahead. Don’t blame me for what happens next if you don’t give that poison to anyone soon.”

And with that, Naomi disappeared from sight leaving only the strange blue lights to illuminate the way.

Unlike the vast majority, goddess wasn't what Mizuki thought of when he first saw the mysterious woman. But, it did make sense. "Uh, yeah okay." He nodded, gotta respect that privacy with the ladies.

"Mhmm. Mhmm." He continuously nod his head each time the goddess stopped to take a breath, but he had no clue what she was talking about. It all just sounded like pretty mumbo-jumbo talk to him... man, she was really pretty. He rocked his head up and down mindlessly to the point that if you asked him to sign a slave contract he would have really done it.

"Wouldn't it be so funny if the wrong person drank the potion though? That would make them so dumb."

Watch what you say Mizuki...

"May true love conquer alllll!!!" Mizuki repeated back extra enthusiastically before the goddess disappeared. Oh my goddess, was this the part of dream where the scene would change and he would meet Belle-senpai and they would get married!? He pulled out his handy-dandy marriage certificate from his pocket and kissed it. He couldn't wait!

He closed his eyes, waiting for his dream to shift to morning... but it didn't. When he opened his eyes, Naomi was already gone and the creepy blue lights were back...

"Longest dream ever..." He muttered and dove back into the crowd to find the only people he knew that he could fanboy to—Sayuri and Takashi. "Aren't you guys so excited!? Reciprocal feelings with our crushes...!!"

ღ February 13: Midnight.

”Y-Yeah!!!” Takashi exclaimed, breathlessly. The exhaustion from tonight was heavily dawning on him. Although excited, he really wanted to have a quick shower and go to sleep.

The admiration making Sayuri’s eyes glimmer did not disappear even when the goddess had disappeared. “Can you believe it? We were just blessed by a goddess!!!” And now…” A small blush appeared on her face as she imagined what’s to come next. “Yeah, mutual feelings!!!”

Takashi smiled at both Sayuri and Mizuki. Both genuinely good people. The first in a long, long time… He wished them good luck. If he wasn’t such a nerd, he might have asked them for their contact numbers or something… but after this, they probably have no need to contact one another ever again…

“We… should get going now.” Takashi shifted his gaze to the unconscious guards. “I hope things go well for you guys…”


”Yeah, you too. I’ll say hi if I see you two on campus before I graduate.” Sayuri looked at them one by one for a little bit longer. It was the first time in a while that she felt a genuine bond between her and some one else other than Kotomi. Of course, it would only last for a night, Nevertheless, she was thankful for them being with her tonight. Giving them one last smile, she bid them goodbye before making it back to her dorm.

ღ February 14 | Valentine's Day: Before School

Takashi did feel tired when he was going home… but the time he spent in the shower sent his mind racing as he imagined Ringo hopelessly in love with him. Although his body felt tired, his mind wouldn’t allow him to go to sleep.

An hour before his alarm, he found himself already dressed and ready to go to school… but not for the confession.

Actually, was he going to confess? How was he going to give her this when she flat out rejects any male presence? Actually, it’s Valentine’s Day and he didn’t even buy her chocolates???

Racing out of his dorm, he ran across the school towards the nearest convenient store in hopes there are still chocolates in stock for him to buy.

"Thank you. Ah. Thank you too." A boyish voice overflowing with adolescence repeatedly automatically without much enthusiasm, but still managed to come across as polite. Many girls passing by were giggling and dropping pieces of chocolates into the young boy's hands, whom stood out greatly among the crowd of girls going through the store.

Despite his appearance, he was wearing a perfectly fit 1st year uniform to F.C Heights.

"Kaoru-chan is popular as always!" A sing-a-long voice sang from behind a mountain of expensive brand named chocolates with fancy packaging. Her voice was rich with character, but carried a heavy, exotic accent that sounded quite beautiful. She nearly tumbled under the weight of chocolates, but managed to regain her balance after a few minutes of swaying back and forth.

"My face is a sin." Kaoru sighed heavily and winced when the overly sweet confectionary entered his mouth. "But anyways, Belle-senpai, isn't that... a bit much?"

"I'm giving chocolates to my mateclass and everyone I know! Ahh, the Japanese custom is so... you say it... cute? Ah, of course, you get one too, Kaoru-chan!"

"No. I'm alright. That guy over there looks like he needs more energy than me. Here you go, fella, treat yourself." Kaoru noticed Takashi run into the chaotic store and poured every last piece of chocolate that was given to him into Takashi's hand.

"Eiiii, don't give away gifts like that." Belle scolded and dumped all her expensive chocolate in front of the frantic cashier. "Say, are you here to get chocolates too?" She beamed a friendly smile at Takashi. "I'd recommend the Knipschildt Chocolatier~"

"That's $55, senpai. I'd recommend Hershey Kisses. Or myself, my text colour is chocolate so you can say my very existence is sweet... or would it be spicy...?"

ღ February 14 | Valentine's Day: Before School

Why is the store so crowded…???

Takashi indeed expect a lot of people, but not… this many people. Not so much that he couldn’t see any of the displays. His head snapped from left to right. If there were so many people here, then the places where they’re crowding around are where the chocolates would be, right???

To save him the trouble of slithering in between people for chocolates, a small boy came up to him and dumped him an amount so heavy he felt his self esteem be buried underneath them. He’s heard about this guy. Boy genius who skipped a couple of grades and entered high school early - it was wild gossip the first month or so of his school year. He never thought he’d meet him and he definitely didn’t think he’d meet him like this.

“I… I-I’m sorry, I c-can’t accept this.” Takashi stuttered while trying to rebuild whatever was left of his self-worth. If what that pretty foreign lady was saying is true, there’s no way he could give someone else’s hard work to Ringo. Dumping whatever was in his hands into a shopping basket, he returned his chocolates back to Kaoru. “Thank you, sorry I can’t, I--” He checked his phone quickly to find there was a little over an hour left before the first bell. “Oh god, I’m, I-I--” He ran straight into the busiest part of the store only to find the stands of Valentine’s Day chocolates impenetrable.

Kaoru's face darkened. Great. What was he going to do with these chocolates now? Just because he was child didn't mean he enjoyed sweets. In fact, he didn't like them much. He sighed and decided to pack it away and give it to Mizuki instead. He knew his older brother wouldn't recieve any chocolate this year. At least pity chocolate would be better than nothing.

Belle had just finished paying and turned to the hunger game likes scene behind her. "Wow, maidens in love are something!" She exclaimed with admiration, eyeing the fortress of chocolates being mobbed by armies of lovestruck girls. She mouthed Takashi a good luck before skipping out of the store with her purchased goods.

"Everyone knew Valentine's day was going to be today, I don't understand why you all decided to buy chocolates so last minute. Always plan and prepare accordingly" Kaoru stated to no one in particular. He was also getting a tad annoyed because of how hot it was from the amount of people in the store and that the crowd was blocking his way to the refrigerator.

Impossible. After a few pathetic attempts to break through, Takashi concluded that it was simply impossible to get chocolates this way. But where else could he get them if not here…? Grocery stores, although with a bigger stock, probably have just as big of a problem as this convenient store here. What else could he give her??? The sweets have also been raided, so maybe roses…????

Takashi’s face filled with dread. He can’t go inside the florist shop. His allergies won’t let him breathe in here.

His hand reached for his phone only to pause mid-stretch into his pocket. He can’t contact his friends for help. They would exile him for attempting to woo a girl no less Ringo without telling any of them beforehand. Looking up suggestions is also not an option because he was stupid enough to waste his data this pay period on his waifu games.

But right there is a boy genius… who has data, probably.

“H-Hey… excuse me, Kaoru...san, is it?” He shuffled meekly towards him and hoped he could get this out before the redness blotching his neck became too apparent. Do y-you mind if I look something up on your phone real quick…?

"Yes, that's correct." Kaoru answered immediately despite the scratchiness of his throat. He peered at Takashi with his chocolate brown eyes and raised an eyebrow. "Alright. Give me a moment." Kaoru unlocked his phone, proceeding past his lock screen background of his own white blood cells. He immediately cleared his internet history before passing his phone to Takashi.

"I didn't catch your name, but please don't drop my phone. The contents are valuable. More valuable than your life." Kaoru decided while Takashi browsed through his phone, he would slip through the crowd and get his hand on a cool drink. "If it gets damaged or stolen it'll cost you $XXXXX, the same price as a kidney or a liver."

"Ah, and if you're looking something suspicious or pornographic please don't tell me and remember to use incognito. Remember, we're in a public space."

The lecture came out odd and gravely serious through the solemn boy's mouth, but he was obviously joking around.... or was he??

”O-Oh I’m Takashi--” Takashi wasn’t even able to finish his sentence before he almost dropped the phone right then and there. Why would some 10 year old have such an expensive phone??? The newest iphone out there was only $1000, why would it cost so much if it got damaged??? What sort of information is on here???? WHAT KIND OF KID IS HE?????

Takashi didn’t feel safe to continue to use Kaoru’s phone. The more he talked, the more he felt like he shouldn’t even be holding it. By the time he started talking about incognito mode, the words he was screaming in his head just blurted themselves out of his mouth. “Why would I even be looking at those things in public??!?!?!?”

He handed his phone back to Kaoru. He was too unsafe of a person to be holding that sort of thing. “Thanks though I… I have to go.” Awkwardly, Takashi just rushed out of there. There probably wasn’t enough stuff in there that he could salvage anyway.

That still left the question: how was he going to give the love potion to Ringo…?

Much contrary to Takashi's conflict, Mizuki was not only ready, but excited to give the love potion to Belle!

He woke up thinking he had the best lucid dream, but when he saw the love potion on his counter he couldn't believe it... everything was real... that meant if he had made the wrong move last night he could have seriously fucked up! Mizuki gulped, but excitedly raised his arms up and prayed to the vial of liquid.

The nerd got up early, and was in the middle of buying couple rings at a street vendor outside campus. You could say he was jumping the gun, but he had a really good feeling about today! Mizuki didn't think he would actually go through with the love potion plan, but now that he was, he was pumping with confidence!

He already had handmade chocolates prepared in advanced that he kept cool in his own mini fridge and now he had a bouquet of roses, and clumsily knitted teddy bear that he meant to give to Belle last year, but was too cowardly to do so.

He grinned ear-to-ear and kissed the bottle in his hands. Finally... the girl of his dreams was in reach...! He wondered how the others he met last night were faring... probably just as well as he was!

Isn’t that…!!!!!!!!

Ideally, he would have liked to bump into Sayuri because she’s a girl and well... she would understand what girls like. She would be nice enough to help him out without laughing too because she would understand what he’s going through. But, he couldn’t be picky right now, even if Mizuki was straight up buying rings like he was gonna propose to her.

“NNNNAkamUra-SEnPAi!!!!!!” Takashi’s voice cracked. His neck and ears felt embarrassingly hot. He thought that everything would go smoothly once he obtained the love potion - why has he done nothing but fail this whole time????

Clearing his throat, he pretended like he didn’t sound like a dying bird and walked towards Mizuki. “Hey, uh, are you buying that for err… her…? I’m also, uh, looking for something else I can give too, so...”

"Umm... um... I...tou-kun?" Mizuki peered at Takashi as if he was a strange speciman floating in a giant glass tube. It felt really weird seeing Takashi again. Almost surreal. Last night felt like a dream and the glow of the moonlight made everyone look more solemn than they really were. The moment he heard Takashi's question, Mizuki's cheeks lit up into a huge amber colour.

"Yeah..." He answered meekly, his newfound confident slowly sinking, but the rings in his palms kept his nervousness at bay and served him as a reminder to not fuck up.... Ah. How romantic would it be if the ring perfectly fit her ring finger though? He didn't know her size, but if fate wanted them together then...

Mizuki's lips twisted up into a self-gratidifying grin just at the thought of it.

After a few seconds of being lost in the clouds, he suddenly remembered that Takashi was still standing there patiently. "Ahem." He cleared his throat, and rubbed his own cheeks, trying to get rid of the burning blush that stained them.

"Most girls like pretty things, I think..." Mizuki pointed to the rows of jewellery that covered the vendor's stall. "Any of these should work...?"

ღ February 14 | Valentine's Day: Before School

Takashi peered at the selection of jewelry ready for purchase. Mizuki wasn’t necessarily wrong - in all his dating sims, jewelry was a very welcomed gift among the bachelorettes - but they were all incredibly picky towards what exactly they wanted. He’s sure that Ringo is the same. Did she like bracelets, or earrings… or jewelry with gemstones or gold…

Thinking about it retrospectively, he’s not even sure if she even likes wearing jewelry. He’s never seen her wearing a necklace or ring… would she like anything like that…? Should he risk it…?

No, not on Valentine’s Day. If this was any normal day, he could have experimented on gifts, but Valentine’s Day was a Special Event Day where any wrong move would permanently damage his affection level with her!!! He had to play this more strategically if he’s to activate that special event flag….

Although Mizuki had his moments of silence, Takashi was currently undergoing one giant self monologue: should he risk buying something for surprise value or should he go for something more comfortable…

He unlocked his phone and gulped. 50 minutes until the bell rings… enough time to give her the present, yes, but if he wants to gift wrap it and then spend 30 minutes trying to approach her…

In the end, he bought a gold-looking hair pin with the rest of his food money for the week.

He imagined her parading with this hair accessory - body held up confidenty with her hair wavy hair flowing majestically behind her. She would be the queen of this whole school, and him, her… her…

He rubbed the droll falling from his mouth. “T-Thanks, Nakamura-senpai! I’m uh… I-I’m gonna go gift wrap this… good… good luck.” And with that, he scampered out back into the convenient store to buy some fancy gift-wrapping paper.

"Wow, is he a rich kid?" Mizuki suddenly felt cheap for just buying metal hypoallergenic rings. But, more so, he felt kind of bad for trying to pass it off as sterling silver–

Anyways, he was impressed with his kouhai for spending so much on the hairpin and mentally wished Takashi good luck back. "Wrapping paper... wrapping paper... Oh, yeah, I need some too!"


In the time it took Takashi to leave, buy that hairpin, then came back, Kaoru still did not have his drink. Instead, he was being buried under dozens of chocolate boxes— some were given to him, some toppled off the giant displays due to the battle taking place inside the store right now.

No matter how many painstakingly suggestions of telling these girls to calm down and act in a civilized manner, they either ignored him or hissed.

Valentines Day wasn't a day of love. It was a day of war. And for the first time in his 10 years of living, he learned that firsthand.

Besides drowning in chocolate, his view of joshikousei panties flashing everywhere would get a normal man in jail, and was rather highly uncomfortable to look at—mainly due to the reason that they all wore such childish undergarments. Wouldn't it be better to gift lingerie on Valentine's day rather than chocolate?

He didn't understand the hype behind this Valentines nor the savage behaviour that arose from these people, but he did now understand that he should never visit a convenience store during this terrible consumer targeted day.

Out of the corner of Kaoru's eyes he noticed Takashi was back. Hoping to get his attention his waved his hand out, but the mountain of chocolates kept increasing and he continued to sink each second.
