The manager was never a loud girl. Seeing as nearly everyone thought she was out of their league, she was never asked out. Which was good, considering her relationship status. She sat next to her significant other every day at lunch, the two were very touchy-feely in public, they made each other lunch, they gave each other candy on white day, they went on dates, they did everything couples did! But no one seemed to get that they were dating. The reason for which was the fact that they were both girls. And [y/n] was going to change that if it killed them.
"Kiyoko-chan." The girl whined, making her bespectacled girlfriend look over. "Kiyoko-chan, we should start calling each other 'girlfriend'. Then people will know we're dating."
"That wouldn't work though." She replied, eating the Tenmesu that was prepared for her in an attempt to show how well her girlfriend knew her. "People call their friends 'girlfriends' now."
"Hmm... Then we'll have to always hold hands."
"We already do."
"Yeah, but our hands always end up obscured by our skirts. Maybe we stand a bit farther apart than usual, or put our hands in front of us instead of to the side."
"It'd be uncomfortable to do that. Plus I like being closer to you."
"Aww, that's so cute, Kiyoko-chan." [y/n] smiled, putting her free hand to her cheek. Her expression hardened again immediately. "But the problem still stands... Maybe we can kiss in public more!"
"We'd have to kiss twenty-four-seven to get that across. And you said you don't appreciate when couples kiss on the mouth in public for more than a few seconds. Or between classes for goodbye."
"It's obnoxious... Man, this is hard to think up. People will assume we're just friends even if they caught us doin' the do." Kiyoko's face went red, making her bury her cheek into [y/n]'s shoulder. "Haha, you're so cute, Kiyoko-chan." The bell announcing the end of lunch chimed through the school, the two sighing and putting their things away. When they stood up to go to class, their hands linked near immediately.
[y/n] walked over to Kiyoko's desk as class ended, the two ready to leave the room. As they were about to leave though, a boy walked up to the two. He was clearly nervous as he stared at the space between the two, who now had him fully in their attention.
"Sh-Shimizu-san, p-please read this!" He stated, sticking a letter out to her. The two blinked, surprised someone finally got the guts to tell her about their affections. She took it slowly, the boy fleeing immediately. The two read it, seeing that it was your stereoypical confession letter. It took a bit before [y/n] realized something.
"Kiyoko-chan, that's it!" The girl announced, her eyes lighting up.
"This is how we can reveal that we're dating. When he asks for your reply, you'll say that you're already dating me. Eventually that'll spread around cuz he's a boy, we're gay girls, and we're in Japan." The girl seemed happy about the plan. "It's not foolproof, but it's all we've got." Kiyoko chuckled at how happy her cute girlfriend was.
"That could work, I guess." She smiled, stopping before the two parted ways. They pecked each other on the lips and said their goodbyes. When the both of them got to their respective destinations, they were asked why they looked so happy.
Within two days, it was known school-wide that the two girls were indeed dating. It wasn't like the two were ever hiding their relationship-- hell, even their parents knew. It sure was a lot different at school now that people had connected the constant displays of affection and the rumor. The members of the volleyball club were surprised at first, but that was drowned out by a wave of excitement. Who was this mystery girl? Could they meet her? How was their relationship going? How did they meet? The boys wanted to know every detail of the relationship during breaks, but it normally ended with Kiyoko turning into a blushing mess and everyone else patting her on the back and then getting back to practice. The coaches of the team were confused and decided to stay out of it, seeing as no harm was done at all. And the couple sure were enjoying being out in the open.
