At this point I imagine natsume in general has become a bit of a meme in the town he lives in. An unexpected storm rolls through town and someone in the class will jokingly groan “oh natsume what’d you do”. There’s a school wide private chat that just details what they saw natsume screaming at this time. This week is a good week for screaming at trees. Whenever a new student comes into the school they get the Natsume Speech™ which is essentially “look he’s the sweetest person you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting just don’t mind it if he sometimes stares off into the void for a few minutes only to run off screaming and just smile and nod when he comes back the next day with the most tepid sounding lie ever. also if you pick on him, you’re dead. we’ll kill you.” Then ofc there’s that fucking cat.
