[Akane, thank you for making me happy.]

She smiled with a carefree smile, dressed in a pure white glittering costume.

You are my pride and my irreplaceable. It may sound fishy, but it was my destiny to meet you.

That’s why I swear to you. I will make you happy for the rest of my life.

[Your tears gland are getting weaker]

The emotions that welled up in me loosened my glands, and tears began to fall.

As she murmured this, she put her hand on my cheek and let her own tears well up.

[From now on and forever——]

—————
————————–

As if to signal the end of the season of warm and balmy spring breezes and dancing cherry blossoms, dark rain clouds are falling. The rain pours down so hard that it beats against the window.

I feel a twinge of regret that I have wasted my day off, having slept through the night into the evening.

I wake up and pick up my cell phone to get ready for dinner, only to be greeted with a startling notification that drives me to a state of agitation.

—–114 incoming calls.

“Oh my God, I’m dead.”

The name on the incoming call log is “Izumi Hisako,” a.k.a. “Ojou”. She is the daughter of Izumi Yuzuru, the head of the Izumi clan, who has been taking care of me.

She and I are about the same age, but I call her Miss out of respect and familiarity with the Izumi family.

The young lady has a selfish temperament, is a bit dictatorial, and has an authoritarian mindset that approves of violence.

As her obedient servant, Hozuki Akane is absolutely obedient to her requests and is not allowed to disobey her commands.

–To the average person, not being able to answer the phone would not be a problem, but to the young lady, not answering the phone means death.

The young lady who makes the unreasonable demand, “If it’s my phone, pick it up with one call,” is probably so furious that she is currently burning in the fires of hell, as if she were in a state of degradation.

I almost laugh at the fact that I am relatively calm, even though I am in a very mortal danger situation.

At any rate, there is no doubt that she will storm into my house, and for the time being, I stay …… until the heat cools down.

Then, I get a notification of an incoming call on my cell phone again.

It was not the daughter, but Yuzuru-san on the other end.

Most likely, it was a request from a father who loves his daughter, asking me to go along with his daughter’s selfishness.

“Yes, this is Akane. What’s wrong, Yuzuru-san?”

“Sorry, Akane. …… Hisako suddenly ran out without an umbrella, has she been at your house?”

voice trembles with a ferocious murderous intent to torture, without regard for this stormy weather.

The light of my life is getting closer every second. I decide to run away in the night.

“I don’t see her here, is something wrong?”

“She was already out of the house by the time I stopped her. …… She looked very serious. I’m sorry, I don’t know how Hisako got that way. I’m sorry, but I need you to take care of her.”

He apologized for the trouble he was causing and ended the call.

I didn’t have time to ask him to be patient, and I was forced to do something very difficult.

I get out my pen and paper to write a suicide note, and begin to wonder what my last words should be.

—-No, I don’t have time for that. I need to get ready to run away at night as soon as possible.

Ding-dong.

The sound of death rang out.

Scary, I’m dead.

Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong.

I continue my futile attempts to get out of the house.

I hunker down, gasping for breath.

Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong, beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep.

Please spare me, really, because I’m a latecomer.

Not here. Hozuki Akane is not in this house.

The sound of rain and thunder is drowned out by the sound of the terrified doorbell and the sound of trying to pry open the door.

How many minutes have I been hiding from the killer? Eventually, the door goes silent, as if the killer has given up and decided that I’m not home.

If I had not locked the door by accident, my fate would have been sealed. With this, I was out of mortal danger….

Click.

─ ─ Well, did I give the key to the young lady?

I had made her a duplicate key, despite my best efforts to convince her that she was being careless these days. The landlord of this house was also in favor of duplicating keys.

Oh, dear, it turned out to be a setback. What am I going to do, let the murderer herself have a duplicate key?

No, this is not the time to calmly look back on how the duplicate key was made. I had to escape from this house,

I couldn’t escape from the reaper.

When she finally reached my room, she made me tilt the doorknob gently.

“I had my reasons – it’s not my fault – it’s not my fault, it’s the cell phone’s fault…” came to mind as I tried to come up with an impossible excuse and a defense.

At the end of the door that quietly opened, there stood a young lady soaking wet all over. Her gaze is cold and contemptuous of people at the bottom of their hearts, and her face is emotionless, as if she has lost all sense of emotion.

The face is so angry that it almost makes you burst into a bubble. Her breathing is erratic and her heart beats in violent waves.

The thunderous roar seems to embody her anger, and a light shines in front of her eyes.

“I understand lady’s anger very well. …… What do you think, can you give me a break here? Killing me means that Yuzuru san will only be saddened by my death. It won’t produce any profit or gain. ……”

I threw away my pride and got down on my knees to beg for my life.

Footsteps approaching step by step with the sound of dripping water. There was no reply from the young lady, and the silence continued.

“…………”

“W-Wait, wait, miss! I’ll give you as many fingers as I can! I’ll give you anything, even money! So ……!”

As I was desperately trying to explain to her in order to extend my lifeline, she finally speaks up.

“Akane ……?”

“Y-Yes! I am your faithful and obedient servant, Hozuki Akane!”

…………”

After my words, the young lady kept her mouth shut.

I continue to dogeza with my head on the ground, but I feel strange that there is no punishment. 

It’s funny,……, because normally the young lady would throw a tantrum and slap you or kick you in the leg or some other violent act.

Quietly, I looked up and there was a startled sight.

“Akane…… really, it’s Akane,……! Ah, ah ……!”

The young lady collapsed in tears and was on the verge of collapsing.

However, my body was numb from being on my knees, and collapsed to the floor.

“I’m sorry ……! I’m begging you, I’m begging you, please don’t …… go away from me. ……!”

“I won’t …… leave you, I won’t.”

The young lady presses her face to my chest and repeats her repentance. I continued to rub her back, feeling a new sense of freshness from the opposite position from the usual.

For seconds, minutes, or even hours, I kept rubbing her back.

I try to lead her to the bathtub, but for some reason she never leaves me, so I take out a towel and wipe her hair.

She looked so comfortable that she made a face of pleasure, and said “Thank you” with an expression of gratitude that should not have been there.

—-Is it a fake?

It is impossible. If she were a normal young lady, she would not let me see her loose face, and she would not express her gratitude.

If it were real, she would have complained in a bad mood and said, “Hurry up, you’re late,” as if it was only natural.

In this torrential rain and thunderstorm, did she get hit by lightning along the way and suffer amnesia? I don’t know what to say to Yuzuru-san in that case.

“I love you, Akane. So, will you go out with me on the premise of marriage?”

“….I am sorry, miss, what did you just say? I think I’m having a little trouble thinking.”

“Izumi Hisako loves Hozuki Akane so much that I fantasizes about a romantic drama with you at night. So I want to go out with you, I want to be your lover.”

Having received a sudden confession from the young lady, I stop wiping her hair and rearrange the situation.

I thought I would be sanctioned by the evil and tyrannical young lady, but she suddenly tells me she loves me – and then there is silence.

“….. No?”

Yes, this is a dream.

Am I dreaming now?

When I wake up, I am an obedient slave.

When I wake up, I’ll be sanctioned for disobeying the lady’s orders, and I’ll have to do some serious self-reflection….

How many fingers do I have to bring in for now?

“Wait, d-did you hear that ……? I have a once-in-a-lifetime confession of love ……”

“I thought we were talking about how you’re going to treat me.”

“L-lie I said—Mouu. I’ve said it over and over again, I, Izumi Hisako, love Hozuki Akane! Please start dating with the intention of marriage and become lovers! ”

I was forcibly released from my escape from reality to accept the fact.

Nothing is impossible, but I still assure you that she is not Izumi Hisako.

She is not Izumi Hisako, but a fake—
