I can be myself again because the cameras aren’t allowed to follow me in here—or at school. “You could join me.” I give him a flirty smile. “Duh, it’s Wednesday. My future girlfriend is on TV. Like I’m going to miss that.” As I set up my tablet, Leo grabs a tray filled with all the decorative shōyu bottles from the restaurant’s tables and a giant jug of soy sauce to refill them. I scooch over in my favorite booth so that Leo and his tray can join me. The opening strains of Kitsune Mask’s wailing guitar echo around the otherwise empty restaurant. Leo and I do our usual dance, which includes flailing arm movements—at least until my hand hits the tray and knocks over one of the decorative bottles, spilling shōyu everywhere. “Dakota!” Leo lightly chastises me before jumping up to get a rag. “Pause it. I’ll be right back.” My eyes follow after him. Leo Matsuda. My best friend for over a decade. The person whose lips send arcs of electricity through my body. Well, at least in my dreams, they do. In reality? I don’t know. I’d be happy to take one for the team and find out though.
“Ojiichan said to give these to you.” Leo puts the plate filled with five Japanese-style chicken nuggets in front of me and mops up the spilled shōyu. “Dōmo arigatō gozaimashita, Ojiichan!” I yell a thanks toward the kitchen door. “Put it on my tab!” “Hai, hai,” Yes, yes, Leo’s grandfather yells back, though we both know he isn’t keeping a running total of all the times the Matsudas have fed me for free. “If we suddenly get busy in the next hour, can you run the cash register? Mom and Dad are at the bank, and Aurora has marching band until seven.” Leo sits back down beside me and wipes his hands on his waist apron.
