She wonders if Asuka really likes her or if it was just a spur of the moment. She decides to ask Asuka directly.
"Asuka, can I ask you something?" Ryouko says nervously.
"Sure, what is it?" Asuka says with a smile.
"Do you... do you like me?" Ryouko asks, blushing.
"Of course I do!" Asuka says, without hesitation. "I like you a lot, Ryouko. You're smart, kind, beautiful, and you make the best cakes ever. I've always admired you from afar, but I was too shy to tell you. But today, after eating your cake, I felt something different. I felt like I had to tell you how I feel. I love you, Ryouko."
Ryouko is stunned by Asuka's confession. She feels a warm sensation in her chest. She realizes that she loves Asuka too. She smiles and hugs Asuka back.
"I love you too, Asuka." Ryouko says softly.
They kiss passionately and walk hand in hand to Ryouko's house.Maki runs to the bathroom and locks herself in a stall. She cries bitterly and curses herself for being so stupid. She regrets ever trying to interfere with Ryouko and Asuka's relationship. She realizes that she has lost Ryouko's friendship and trust forever. She feels lonely and hopeless.
She hears a knock on the door. She wipes her tears and tries to sound normal.
"Who is it?" Maki says.
"It's me, Yuki." A familiar voice says. "Can I come in?"
Yuki is another member of the cooking club. She is a cheerful and friendly girl who likes to make jokes and tease others. She is also Maki's best friend.
"No, you can't." Maki says. "I'm fine. Just leave me alone."
"Come on, Maki. Don't be like that. I know something's wrong. You've been acting weird lately. And you ran out of the club room so fast today. What happened?" Yuki says, with concern.
"Nothing happened. It's none of your business." Maki says, lying.
"Don't lie to me, Maki. I'm your friend. You can tell me anything. I won't judge you or laugh at you. I promise." Yuki says, sincerely.
Maki hesitates for a moment. She feels a surge of emotions in her heart. She wants to tell Yuki everything. She wants to share her pain and sorrow with someone who cares about her. She wants to feel loved and accepted.
She unlocks the door and opens it slightly. She sees Yuki's face, full of worry and compassion.
"Yuki..." Maki says, softly.
Yuki smiles and hugs Maki gently.
"It's okay, Maki. I'm here for you." Yuki says, soothingly. ec8f644aee
