You stop in your pace and look towards her. Recalling Naruto’s words,
“Listen, if you hold her hand… maybe she’ll get the message that y’know…”
Even though Naruto, of all people, is the worst person to ask advice from, you think to yourself it couldn’t hurt to be a little more bold and hold her fucking hand. It’s not like you’re already trying to be bold but she hasn’t been noticing any of your previous gestures.

Sakura’s eyes widen to your raised palm.

Your extended palm holds the groceries that Sakura bought earlier and you think to yourself,

Kun, the one who is always by Dong Sicheng’s side in NCT Life because Sicheng was the shy child who was most familiar with Kun so he stuck by him all the time so that he doesn’t feel left out. Kun, the one who was not fluent in Korean and had a very hard time understanding the Korean members but still laughed along whenever a joke was made. Kun, the one who was always smiling his beautiful smile on NCT Life no matter what. Kun, the one who is constantly spotted with younger trainees and taking care of them and showing them around. Kun, the one who has his wallpaper as NCT because even though he has not debuted as yet, he loves NCT with all his heart to the moon and back. Kun, the one who travelled to an unfamiliar country in hopes of fulfilling his dreams. Kun, the one who silently supports the members by liking posts about them on weibo. Kun, the one who left his family in Fujian and found a new family in the NCT members. Kun, the one who wrote endless songs during his teenage years until now, and has never given up on his dreams. Kun, the one who selflessly volunteered at an elderly home to help those who needed it.
To Qian Kun, a humble hearted person with the world of love to give those around him- happy birthday and happy new year. I hope wherever you are, you are happy and smiling that warm smile of yours and feel the love of those around you.
