I finish my business at my father-in-law’s place and get another ride back to the apartment.

“My shoulders are a little stiff.”

I exhale as I roll my shoulders.

Maybe I’ve been studying a little too much lately. I’m going to take a good rest today.

“I’m home.”

That word is a habit of mine. I’ve been saying it since I was living alone.

But I’m not alone anymore.

The sound of her bouncing footsteps proved it.

And when she came to the door, she said–

“Welcome home, Dear.”


She said so at the very beginning of her appearance.

Her long white hair was pulled back in a bun. It is called a ponytail.

And then, Nagi was wearing an apron on her uniform. 

When I come home, I’m greeted by my girlfriend in uniform. This must be a very precious experience.

“……? Souta kun, is something wrong?”

“Ah, no, nothing.”

I shook my head toward Nagi and somehow managed to beat back my tiredness.

“Ah, Souta kun. You have dust on your head.”

“Hmm? Sorry, let me—“

Nagi took a step forward, and at the moment I squatted down lightly.

She put her lips on mine.

“—Fufu. Just kidding.”

Like a child whose prank succeeded. However, the lips that smiled at me were so glossy and lifted up at the edges that they could not be called innocent.

The red lips, which stood out in comparison to her cheeks and skin, were a sight to behold. Somewhere I heard that men often look at lips when looking at women.

Until now, I had wondered if such a thing was really true. I liked Nagi’s eyes.

–But now I might understand.


Nagi looks at me and laughs in a voice as light as a bell.

“Did it interest you?”

Once you’re curious, you can’t take your eyes off her. Her red, plump, fresh lips open slightly and words are spun.

Even her every movement was breathtakingly beautiful.

“Please touch it.”

Nagi entwined her slender white-fish-like fingers with my hand and brought it closer to her own face.

Her warm, sweet breath hung on my fingers.

My fingers touch her lips. They are so soft. It’s a different kind of softness from her cheeks.

And—at the same time, I look at her face.


Nagi let out a small voice, and she was shutting her eyes.

She is exposing a very defenseless figure.


I wanted to say something, but the words didn’t come out well.

I was very quiet and touched Nagi’s lips softly.

At the same time. I feel like I can understand why my eyes were so drawn to it.

“Did you change your lipstick?”

“….Hm, so you noticed.”

“And also, have you changed your makeup a little?”

“Really. You’ve been paying close attention to me.”

Nagi opened her eyes a little and then her cheeks turned slightly red.

“I changed things up with the lipstick, and I changed the way I do my makeup a little. To make it look more natural.”

“I see.”

I was about to put my hand on her cheek, but then I reconsidered that it would be better not to touch her too much if she was wearing makeup.

But still—

“You’re beautiful.”


The skin is translucent and transparent. However, even among them, her blue eyes and bright red lips have a strong presence.

The skin, which is turning redder, is also a little whiter than usual and does not lose its transparency.

Her blue eyes flicker for a moment. Her lips tremble as she turns her eyes down, but she quickly brings them back up to my face.

“Souta kun…”

Her fingers plucked at the hem of my dress.

“H-how long do you want to please me?”

My lips were off her finger and the next thing I knew, Nagi was in my chest.

“You’re such a difficult husband, aren’t you?”

I closed my eyes and swallowed a lot of things.

“I can say the same thing about Nagi.”

I put my right hand on her back. And my left hand on her head.

“I’m sorry, Nagi. …..Can I hug you tightly for a moment?”

“Yes ! It’s all right. 

I will not be broken so easily.”

I couldn’t wait for Nagi’s words. I hugged her, and a cute squeal escaped from her mouth.


Nagi looked surprised by the suddenness, but soon rubbed her cheek against my chest.

The way she was rubbing her cheek against my chest again shook my heart.

I exhaled as if to let out everything that was in the back of my mind.

But still, this feeling never subsided. I just kept hugging Nagi tightly.


“By the way. Souta kun, what business did you have with Papa?”

“Hm? Ah, right.”

Surely she must be wondering. But….no. It’s something I have to tell her sometime.

“Well, you know. Nagi.”

“If you don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine with me.”

“No. It’s not that I don’t want to talk about it.”

I shut my eyes to clear my head a little.

But I quickly opened my eyes to see that it was nothing to think too much about.

Nagi was standing in the kitchen, staring at me.

“I’m thinking of getting a part-time job.”

“…..! Oh, really?”

“Yeah. I’ve been looking for a job since January.”

“Ah……I see.”

It’s not a big deal, but I don’t think I’ll be allowed to work part-time under the current circumstances.

“Nagi, don’t look at me like that. We’ve already sorted things out.”


“That day, I talked with Father-in-law about a lot of things.”

That day.

That was the day Nagi and I were asked to live together. When I asked Nagi to leave for a time and talked to Father-in-law.

“As you can imagine, part-time work is tough. Father-in-law said that he will definitely resolve this within a month. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t others out there with bad intentions. He said he’d like to look at it for a few months if possible.'”

Nagi almost lost her eyes a little at my words. But she quickly shook her head and looked up, waiting for me to continue

“Father-in-law was thinking about me very well.”

I held her hand to reassure her.

“There were some conditions attached, but I was able to get permission.”


“Yeah. I’m going to help Soichiro san’s company. Or rather, to work there part-time.”

Nagi’s eyes widened and she reflexively squeezed my hand tightly.

“However, it seems like it’s just chores. He said he wouldn’t let me do anything that difficult.”

“Um, I see. Souta kun.”

The blue eyes swam a little, and Nagi spoke in a small whisper.

“I have a feeling that the outer moat is being filled in.”

‘”…..No way.”

I thought about it for a moment, too, but as expected, it’s not likely.

“No. I think it’s completely possible. One of Papa’s beliefs is that [those who are above must know about those below.] By the way, when he says [below] he doesn’t mean to look down.”

“I can guess that…… No, I really don’t think so.”

Nagi would understand. That kind of education has probably been given to her until now.

But I’m a high school student with no knowledge of anything. It can be said that I have no knowledge of business or anything like that.

“So, why did you go to your Papa’s today? Are you already at the head office?”

“No, not yet. He said I should have at least some knowledge, like computer skills, a little bit of technical terminology, etc.”

“Hmm… directly from Papa, huh?”


Nagi listened to my words and seemed to think about something.

“Souta kun, do you have any job you want to get in the future?”

“A job I want to have in the future, huh?”

The question reminded me of something I had missed.

“Not a job. But I had a goal for the future.”

I stopped words at that point, but Nagi was naturally curious about it. She was waiting for the next words.

“…My father. He’s a rather stubborn person though.”

I’m a little embarrassed. But I certainly meant what I said.

“He is an important person. He is able to tell his family that he loves them, and he is able to provide for them. He has the power to protect his family. Now I can verbalize it like this, but back then, all I could say was [wow]”

Back then, I didn’t realize it at all.

“Now I can see. How blessed I was with my family.”

I’m not comparing myself to anyone or anything.

“At least, that’s what I thought. That’s why I want to be like him.”

That’s my goal.

“I think it’s a very good dream.”

Nagi nodded her head with a very, very nice smile.

“Well, that’s about it. So, I guess it doesn’t matter what profession I’m in, the goal is the same.”

“I see. ……Then you’ll be fine.”

“Hm? What?”

“Nothing. But if you need anything, please let me know. I will do my best to support you.”

“Yeah, thank you.”

Dreams for the future, huh?

I may think about it again, but—

Looking at Nagi smiling softly. I nodded deeply.

If I can be with Nagi, that’s all I need.

I’m sure I’ll be happy with her no matter what.
