CHAPTER IV

“Thank you so much, Koyama-san, for giving me this opportunity.” Yuki bowed as she thank the owner of the art gallery, Koyama Keiichiro, who was now having his rounds around the art gallery.

It was closing time now. And she’s very happy and contented. A lot of art aficionados appreciated and praised her work. Some even offered her a large sum of money just to buy her paintings. And some gave her their business cards and offered her job. But she politely declined all of them.

“Nah, I should be the one thanking you. Your artworks were a blast. Lots of art lovers asked me to buy your paintings. They thought that because I’m the owner, you’ll easily give in.” he laughs. “As if you’re that easy,”

She smiled. “I’m flattered. Thank you. By the way, uhm…” she took out a notebook-sized painting wrapped in a white paper. “…this one’s for you,”

“For me?” he looked surprised as he took the painting from her. “I thought you’re not selling your works?”

She shook her head. “I’m not. That is my token of appreciation. It’s small, though.” she laughed. “And rushed. I’m sorry for that,”

He smiled. “No, it’s fine. I mean, it’s fantastic. You’re the only one who remembered to give me something like this.” he raised the painting. “Thank you very much for this,”

“No, thank you,” she smiled.

“Kei, what’s taking you so long?! I’m very hungry now!” a familiar voice behind them exclaimed.

She saw him walk towards them. He was with another guy.

“Oh, I totally forgot about, Shige.” Kei said flatly.

“Shut up. What’s taking up your time?”

“Not ‘what’ but ‘who’, I guess.” the guy who was with Shige teased.

“Ah, Yuki!” Shige exclaimed.

“Good evening,” she greeted them.

“Good evening, too…”

“Yuki. Edanga Yuki,” she smiled.

“Ah, I’m Tegoshi Yuya,”

“Oh, nice meeting you, Tegoshi-san.”

“Tegoshi would be fine. Please, remove the ‘san’. Thank you,”

She giggled. “As you say so, Tegoshi. Please, call me ‘Yuki’. Thank you,”

“Okay, kids, we’re taking too much of Yuki’s time. Let’s go.” Shige looked at her. “Thank you for talking with us.”

Kei stopped walking and faced her. “Hey, why don’t you join us for dinner?”

“Eh? Me?” she pointed herself.

“Yes, you. Let’s go!” Kei said and the pulled her with them.
