Is the use of 'why' natural in an exchange like the following? (And does the whole dialogue sound natural?)
- Are you doing (corrected) anything special after classes today?
- Nothing special, just the usual things.(corrected) And why?
- I was wondering if you would like to take a walk somewhere. It's (corrected) a crime to stay indoors in such glorious weather.
- That's all right by me. I need to get a breath of fresh air. Let's meet at five at our usual place.
- It's a deal. See you at five.

If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
The dialog looks quite natural, congratulations. "And" before "why" makes it a little less natural; just "Why?" would be a typical response. You might want to review your text closely for spelling and capitalization errors.
