[It's late into the night, or possibly just early into the morning. In either case, Sakura is awake and the journal is recording without his notice. He's pacing a room, not quite fidgeting but looking ill at ease, and if he seems a little worse-for-wear, it's not totally unexpected, given everything that happened recently.]
[It's clear that he's exhausted. There are heavy bags under his eyes, as if he's been fighting sleep for over two weeks. He rubs at one eye absently, and sighs, his shoulders slumping. He used to be able to go much longer without sleep -- but after a year of regular nights of sleep, he'd grown used to it again.]
[He looks up from his work, and it's clear that there's a scattering of hobbies around him. At the moment, he was concentrating on folding origami, and the table he sits up is filled with stray cranes, rabbits, and other random animals. But his mind isn't in it and he pushes the paper away. He rubs at his face again and stands up, pacing around, picking up a pair of scissors and staring at a bonsai that's been clipped within an inch of his life, and sets the scissors back down with a sigh. He picks up at a cookbook, shakes his head and replaces it. He wanders around some more, clearly just bored and wishing he could sleep.]
[He sits down with a heavy sigh.]
[And he picks up some fabric, unclear what it is he's sewing, but he stares down at the fabric for a long moment before he closes his eyes, shakes his head, and sets that aside, too.]
[The camera times out for a long while, but when it picks back up again - a few hours later, the sun already rising, Sakura's no longer in his room, but rather at the hospital. The reason becomes clear, for those who didn't already know, as he comes upon the egg that holds Tachibana, sleeping seemingly peacefully. Sakura watches him for a moment, looking even more exhausted now that the day's started, hands in his pockets and slumping into himself.]
... Just wake up already. [He's tired of worrying so much.]

[It starts with Sakura doing typical cleaning things at the noodle shop, wiping down tables and rearranging the menus. Although tucked under his arm, there are some menus that have rather adorable little flowers doodled onto them, and he seems cheerful enough as he works.]
[He props up the journal so he can smile into it]
Well. I don't really know the tradition for things like this. Is it something like a birthday? An anniversary? Do we give gifts or receive gifts? Or is it something that's just used as a means for introspection, the typical, "gasp, have I really been here for so long?"
I guess what I'm saying is, is there anything special about being here for one year? Or does it not count if you go home for a few months, too?
In any case, I've been here a year. Which means that Tachibana and Chika-chan have been here for about that same amount, too. And it just feels strange not to remark on it or do something to mark the occasion.
So even though the noodle shop isn't a year old (yet), I'll give discounts to anyone who wants to skip their way down here. You'll get an even bigger discount if you admit that you're cute.
I'll even give you these cute menus designed by someone super cute. [And he waves the flower-drawn menus in front of the camera before he shuts it off with a laugh]

[Shows a quick close-up of Sakura, who's just smiling like a total fool as he bends down near the journal, lifting his hand (like in the icon) to speak in a staged whisper,]
You know, I said it before, but I was drunk then but this time I definitely mean it. Tachibana's definitely the prettiest, isn't he? Although he'd just say I'm biased.
But look, look.
[And he angles the journal up so that it starts recording Tachibana, who is busy actually doing, well, his job. They're at the noodle shop. Sakura bends back down into the screen again, smiling like an idiot in a total "see, see?" kind of look, and when he looks away it's clear he's just totally beaming at Tachibana]
[And of course eventually Tachibana notices. He looks awkward for a second and then just mutters, "Will you go back to work, you idiot?"]
[Sakura laughs. ♥]
I'm just telling everyone about the special discount at the shop today! [He beams down at the camera, clearly smitten.] Lasting now until Valentine's Day because I say so, you can get 20% off any meal you'd like!
[And then he drops his voice again, whispering,]
See? He's the best. [♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥]
