At that moment, Shiina’s eyes reflect and sparkle in the nightscape.
“Is that what you mean, girlfriend,……………?”
She looks at me with a blush on her cheeks and looks up at me.
The expression makes me blush, but I’m in a panic,
“No, I don’t mean like that yet, I mean more normal, like we’re still childhood friends, not following each other around or acting like menheras.”
I’m not going to go out with her or act like she’s my childhood friend yet.
Girlfriends, it is not yet possible to call her. We’ve been a good friend since I was a little girl. we can talk about anything and everything and solve problems together.
“No. …………, huh?”
I said to Shiina, who was blushing and shrugging,
She suddenly bursts out laughing.
“Eh, did I say something funny?”
“No, not at all. I just thought it wasn’t like you.”
“Is that a diss?”
“No, it’s just like you.”
“I don’t get it. …………”
“How long have you been making me wait? Do you know how long I’ve been waiting?”
“I’m really sorry.”
“Well, I like that about you too, your childishness.”
She smiled as she wiped away her tears,
“But I’m a little disappointed that I’m not your girlfriend though~:
She leaned back and stretched.
“That’s not exactly the same as this.”
“Saku kun, you’re a chicken”
“I thought it was a man’s right to speak up when he’s in a situation like that.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, it’s okay. I’ll wait for you. I’m good at waiting.”
“Waiting? When did I say that?”
“Because it’s not ‘yet’ right?”
She raises her index finger and places it gently on my nose.
“I’m not your girlfriend right now, but I can be your girlfriend in the future, can’t I?”
“When did I say that?”
“You said earlier that I’m not your girlfriend yet. That’s a long-winded way of saying you’re confessing your feelings for me, isn’t it?”
I blush when Shiina looks at me devilishly.
Shiina will become my girlfriend. ……………………… I wonder if such a future will come. I’m not sure if it will ever come.
The word “yet” was said subconsciously. I’m not sure if there is a part of me deep down in my heart that wants to see that future.
What Abe-san said was right.
I should be true to my heart. This is for my sake and Shiina’s sake.
I will never throw Shiina away again. I will keep a little distance from her when she behaves abnormally, but that probably won’t happen again.
If I don’t reject her, Shiina will stay quietly next to me. I’m sure she will be.
“The night view is beautiful, isn’t it?”
Before I knew it, Shiina was standing next to me, putting her hand on the window and staring out.
This view is certainly the kind of view you want to see with your significant other.
I can understand why couples are flocking to it.
Shiina’s profile illuminated by the night view.
I think again. It is a miracle that such a beautiful girl has always been by my side.
Plus, the fact that I had deluded myself into thinking we were in a relationship seemed like a dream.
“Shall we eat ramen and go home?”
I expected Shiina to turn to me with a smile as usual, but she kept looking out the window.
She was also looking away from me a little.
But I can see Shiina’s expression in the reflection of the window.
It was the face of a girl who had achieved her dream, with a single tear on her cheek, but beaming.
