Haru noticed their gazes and said, "Her name is Sakura Yamauchi. She is my friend."
"Sakura. They're my acquaintances, their names are Erina Nakiri and Hisako Arato," Yuuki said.
"Hello, Nakiri-san! Arato-san!" Sakura smiled sweetly at them.
"U - Umm..." Erina and Hisako weren't sure what to say, especially when they saw a warm smile of Sakura.
"I won't bother either of you. Enjoy your meal," Haru said and brought Sakura to the other seat.
Sakura bowed her head politely and followed Haru.
Erina and Hisako looked at their backs with a strange expression.
"Erina-sama, do you think that they're just friends?" Hisako asked.
"What do you mean, Hisako?" Erina asked.
"I - I mean what if he is cheating on his girlfriend?" Hisako asked.
"What?!" Erina was surprised. She looked at Sakura and remembered Utaha a few days ago. She shook her head and said, "Y - You can't think of that! Isn't he saying that they're just friends?"
"Well...." Hisako thought for a while and nodded.
"Let's not think too much about them. We're here for work, right?" Erina said.
"Yes. Erina-sama." Hisako nodded.
"Who are they?" Sakura asked, looking at Haru curiously.
"They're business partners. Don't think that they're young, but they are an expert in the culinary business," Haru said.
Sakura suddenly sighed when she heard about Haru.
Haru raised his eyebrow and asked, "What's wrong?"
"I am not sure, but I feel like I live in a different world from the people around you," Sakura said with a light worried expression on her face.
"What do you mean by that? A different world?" Haru held Sakura's hand and said, "If we're living in a different world then I won't be able to touch your hand now and even feel your warmth."
Sakura blushed looking at his action and said, "You really making me cheap!"
"Cough! Let's pick some food first since I am a bit hungry," Haru said.
Sakura was a bit dissatisfied, but she nodded at him.
"How about Paella?" Haru asked.
"Isn't the portion quite large?" Sakura asked.
"It's okay. Just pick what you want and I'll eat the rest. I'll treat you since you have invited me to watch a football match earlier," Haru said.
"Really? You're going to treat me?" Sakura asked.
"Sure." Haru nodded.
"I won't hold back. I want to try a lot of food here." Sakura looked at the waitress and started to bombard her with a lot of menus.
Haru closed the book menu calmly while looking at Sakura with a speechless expression.
"Tapas ostras, paella marisco, jamon sutirdo, tarta de santiago, churros, and lemon juice," Sakura said. She looked at Haru and asked, "How about your drink?"
"...." Haru was a bit speechless since he knew that he was the one who was going to eat almost all of the food. "Cola Kahlua."
The waitress wrote down their order and said, that she would bring the dishes after this.
"Is it alright to order that much right?" Sakura asked.
Haru nodded and said, "You don't need to worry."
"Oh, what is Kahlua?" Sakura asked.
Haru thought for a while and decided to lie to her since he didn't want to tell her that it was alcohol. "It's coffee from Mexico.
Sakura nodded and said, "I'll go to the bathroom first."
"Sure." Haru nodded and started to observe the interior of the restaurant.
Sakura entered the bathroom and opened her bag before taking out a bottle of water inside her bags. She took a deep breath and looked at her complexion in the mirror. She drank her water then went to the toilet and forgot to take out her bag.
Erina, who also wanted to go to the toilet, also went to the bathroom. She saw a small bag was opened and waited in front of the toilet. She unconsciously looked at the inside of the bag and was very surprised since she could see a lot of medicines. She knew that those medicines were used when someone had a very dangerous or chronic disease. 'Cancer? Heart disease?' She didn't know what kind of disease it was, but there was a huge chance that the owner of this bag should be the person inside this toilet. She didn't need to wait too long and she saw the person who came out was the one who was eating together with Haru. She was surprised, but she hurriedly changed her expression since she was afraid of being known to peek inside Sakura's bag.
"Hello Nakiri, we have met again," Sakura said.
Erina nodded and said, "Hello, Yamauchi-san."
"Ah, I won't bother you. You can enter first," Sakura said.
"Thank you," Erina said and entered the toilet. She sighed in relief when Sakura didn't know that she had looked inside her bag. She had become curious and wondered what kind of relationship both Haru and Sakura had. 'Friend?' She suddenly thought about a lot of manga plots where the girl had a critical illness and the boy was with her. She suddenly felt sad and cried in the toilet. She also had one question in her head. 'Does he know about it?'
Sakura didn't think too much about Erina and went back to Haru. She saw a lot of food on the table. "Wow! There are a lot!"
"Isn't it you the one who has ordered it?" Haru asked.
"Well, let's eat!" Sakura said excitedly.
Haru nodded and both of them started to eat together. He had to admit that the taste of the foods was really good and he was quite satisfied with these foods.
Hisako was looking at both Sakura and Haru then looked at the clock. She saw that they were almost late for their appointment later. She thought for a while and wanted to visit Erina in the toilet. However, she shook her head and it was better to wait for a while. "Erina-sama, what are you doing?"
