*Birds fly through a cloudy sky.*
*Mike lies back against a tree trunk, wearily watching a leaf float by on the wind.*
*Mike sits up, a sad look on his face, as the leaves flutter down around him.*
*Mike gazes sadly around the empty park.*
*Mike continues to look around the park.*
*Daisy walks by quickly. She passes by Mike without seeing him.*
*Mike is startled. His ears perk up.*
*Daisy stops walking, an irritated look on her face.*
*Daisy turns around.*
Daisy: Hi th-- AAHHH!!
*Daisy jumps, clasping her hands to her chest in surprise when Mike zips up to her and waves. Mike smiles awkwardly.*
*Mike blushes and smiles shyly.*
Mike: Um.. are you heading home?
*Daisy pouts, confused. She begins to blush.*
Mike: Can I walk you?
Daisy: .. Why?
*Mike smiles, embarrassed. His ears are down and he taps his fingertips together nervously.*
Mike: I wanted to make up for not spending as much time with you as I should have been.
*Daisy’s eyes go wide in shock.*
*Mike slumps forward. He looks to the side.*
Mike: Daisy.. I’m really sorry. I’ve been a pretty crappy friend to you lately. You’ve been so distant..
*Mike sighs, rocking back on his heels and holding his hands behind his head. Daisy watches him with wide eyes, a hand at her chest.*
Mike: And I’ve just been so absorbed in my own stuff I took way too long to notice it.
*Daisy clasps her hands in front of herself and looks sweetly at Mike.*
Daisy: Oh, Mikie.. You don’t have to apologize..
*Mike glances at her, unsure.*
Mike: You sure?
*Daisy beams at Mike.*
Daisy: .. but I’ll take you up on that walk!
*Mike makes a victorious gesture, leaning in with enthusiasm.*
*Daisy looks away demurely.*
Daisy: We can take the path through the park~ ♥
*Daisy blushes happily, hands still clasped together while Mike walks by Daisy’s side, humming.*
