My name is Hinorawa Mio.

I am hopelessly in love.

I thought so in the spring of my second year of high school.


“Hakariya Hakari and Akamori Kyoko are coming to this store.”

Heh? No matter how many times I hear it, it doesn’t enter my head. What are you saying, Yukimi?

[Then, go out with me. Yukimi kun.]

Huh? Even though you’ve never talked properly?

[Okay. I’ll go out with you.]

Haa !?


The two idols, Hakarya Hakari and Akamori Kyoko, have left the restaurant, and now Yukimi and I are sitting across the table from each other.

It was an attack……I think. It was literally an attack of the storm.

It suddenly appeared and with its overwhelming force it knocked everything down and left.

The restaurant was still open for business, and there should have been sounds created by people eating and other employees, but I didn’t hear anything.

I felt as if my consciousness was so far away that I could not hear anything.

I didn’t speak, so Yukimi didn’t speak either.

This guy.

What is he doing looking so cool in front of all those idols?

To tell you the truth, even as a woman, I was scared by their radiance.

Akamori Kyoko was cute, of course, but Hakariya Hakari was, to say the least, extraordinary.

The doll was so well formed that I would be convinced if I were told that she was made by the most renowned doll maker in the world.

Every time she blinked, every time she opened her lips, I was mesmerized.

I could see her face, the embodiment of beauty, contort as she looked at me.

She could see that I was standing next to him, trying to touch his body whenever I had the chance.

She could also see the distance between me and him, and I knew she was frustrated.

Even though you haven’t even talked to him yet.

I thought it was because she didn’t know anything about him.

I knew before she confessed her love for Yukimi that Hakariya Hakari was in love with him.

So, now I think my presence was completely counterproductive.

I never dreamed that she would take action at this point in time.

And Yukimi was confessed to.

After a long silence, he agreed.

He said he’d would go out with her.

Of course he would have said yes.

She is a woman who all the boys in Japan are dying to get their hands on, and she confesses her feelings for him.

But at the same time, I was hoping that Yukimi would reject her proposal with a snap.

Because this guy is not ordinary.

I thought I was the only one who noticed this specialness.

Of all people, to be robbed by the Koikoizaka No. 1, Hakariya Hakari?

How could a mere high school boy be found by the most powerful enemy?

How is this possible?

My body sinks into the sofa and I feel like I’ll never get up again.

I stare at Yukimi across the table.

He is typing a message on heis phone with a nonchalant look on his face.

Is it his younger sister, Yuki chan?

I’ve only met her a few times, but she’s cute.

Cute and smart.

I wish I had a sister like her.

I wish I could talk to her about it.

Dear Yuki chan.

Your brother is dating an idol.

Even though he’s not super cool.

Well, I, personally, think he’s cool, with his eyes and all.

I don’t think he’s good-looking enough for Hakariya Hakari.

No, I don’t think Yukimi is not good either.

I thought Yukimi would never have a girlfriend.

Ugh. I’ll cry.

What should I do, Yuki chan?

I don’t know. I’m in a state of who-knows-what. I’m in pain. Ah.

My thoughts are flowing out of my head.

I looked at him with resentful eyes, and he finally looked at me.

This guy.

Say something.

“Don’t you have to go back to work?”

No. Not that.

Don’t say that like it’s nothing.

“No. I’ve already turned in my time card.”

“I see. I’m going home then.”

“Can I come home with you?”

“We’re going in different way.”

“I’ll just stop on the way.”

Yukimi may act lazy at first glance, but he never turns down a heartfelt request.

And he always knows what you are really asking for.

A characteristic that only I know.

“……I get it.”


And I’m sure he’ll drive me home, even if it’s in the opposite direction.

I was so damaged, I didn’t think I’d ever get up again, but when I knew I could go home with him, I got back on my feet.

Maybe he is simpler than I thought.

I greet the manager, who was probably anxiously checking on me, and get dressed.


When I entered the locker room, I found Sakagami san, who came in at 10:00 p.m. to replace me.

Sakagami san is the leader of the hall staff and a female college student.

I know I’m paralyzed by Hakariya, but Sakagami san is also beautiful, has a kind personality, and is the staff member I get along with the best at this restaurant.

She has a harsh attitude toward the manager, but I secretly think it’s a reflection of her love for him. I would like to ask her about it someday.

“Good work.”

“Whoa ! Mio chan ! You started back to work today ! Are you all right now?”

Sakagami san, who came up to me and looked into my face, was like an older sister, in fact, she was older than me, but I was glad that she was concerned about me.

By the way, Sakagami san is polite to everyone, but I feel that he has a slightly more casual tone with me.

I’m also happy to feel that friendliness.

“Yes, thanks to you. I hope I can start working in the office again little by little.”

“I’m glad to hear that, too. Don’t take it too hard. Oh, by the way. Is Yukimin going to work today?”

“Yes, he was. What about it?”

I felt like a blur in my mind when I thought about Yukimi right now.

“The other day, we all had a welcome party for the new part-timers who joined this year.”

“Ah, there are quite a lot of newcomers this year, aren’t there?”

I listen to her story as she takes off her clothes.

By the way, I have been working here since last fall.

“There were three boys in the kitchen and three boys in the hall, and I asked them all which one of them was their favorite type.”


I wasn’t really interested in the topic and was thinking about how my breasts are getting tight again while buttoning up my blouse.

So the fact that Yukimi was this year’s newcomer had completely slipped my mind.

“Yukimin, she said she likes Mio chan.”

“Ehh !?”

I was facing the locker, but I turned my body towards Sakagami san with great vigor.

I can’t help but worry about the button popping when I’m half-fastening it.


No way. That kind of thing.

“T-then, did he say anything else !?”

“Y-you shuddered…….”

Sakagami san is holding her hand on her own modest chest.

“Did he say something !?”

“Y-you’re cleavage……”

Sakagami san is saying something incomprehensible.

“Sakagami san ! !”

Come to your senses.

“……Ha sorry, sorry. That’s all there is to it.”

That’s all there is to it—-

No, even if that’s all, it’s not good.

I run out of vocabulary.

I’m too happy.

After all, I am… that’s right.

I wonder if this is still my chance.

Am I being egotistical?

I’m starting to think that it doesn’t matter.

I don’t know why I was feeling so weak.

“Looking at Mio chan’s reaction, you don’t seem to be too full of it.”

Sakagami san is grinning at me as if she had found the seeds of love.

The person I consider special has become the boyfriend of a national idol.

Even so, I don’t want to give up.

Remember how happy I was when he saved me, his face, the tone of his voice.

And I may have said it in the heat of the moment.

I imagine him telling me he loved me.

My heart burns. My heart beats faster.

“Yes, I’m not too upset.”

I don’t have the courage to tell him yet, but I try to say it out loud.

Like chewing.

“I, too, love Yukimi.”

I felt like a flame was lit in my heart.

My name is Hinoriwa Mio.

I am hopelessly in love.

But the game is just beginning.
