“We’re breaking up.”

My girlfriend, Tsukise Yuika whom I had been dating for half a year, suddenly said that she was breaking up with me.

Around early evening..

The sound of crows coming to my ears.

But my mind was so blank that I didn’t care about that.

“W-why, all of a sudden……. You’re kidding, right?

“I’m not kidding. I’m serious.”

“Do you have someone else you like?”

“No, I don’t.”

“Well then !”

“Lately, I’m not sure if I still like Takuto. I don’t see why I  should continue going out with Takuto. To be honest, I don’t even want to do things like a lover.”

Yuika dropped her gaze and confided her feelings as if she was tired of it.

Recently, Yuika and I have been growing apart a bit.

I thought it was just a stage of ennui, but it seems that she was simply losing interest in me.

(TL/N: Like a married couple who lost interest in each other.)

My heart aches.

I feel ashamed and bitter that I didn’t notice the change in Yuika’s feelings, and above all, I’m frustrated with myself.

However, I don’t think this is a one-sided problem.

It’s my neglect that has caused Yuika’s feelings to die down.

Yuika has a problem too, because she didn’t ask me for any advice even though she was in such a situation.

“C-can’t we start over?  I want to make you fall in love with me one more time, Yuika.”

“I’m sorry, It’s not possible..”

“P-please give me a second chance !”

“You’re a little persistent, Takuto.”

Yuika scratched the bottom of her chin with her finger and gave me a fishy look.

I held my voice back and fell silent.

“Thank you for everything until now. From now on, please treat me as a friend.”

“Wait…..well, yeah. I understand ……”

I understood Yuika’s determination.

Yuika turned on her heel and headed home.

I couldn’t follow her.

“……Sigh.”

Time has passed for a while.

I was sitting on a swing in the park.

It’s a small neighborhood park, so I didn’t see any children.

Well, I chose here because it’s an empty spot.

“What has gone wrong…..”

I muttered to no one and looked back at my behavior.

I wonder if I haven’t changed at all.

I wonder if it’s better if i gave her various surprises or something.

I pondered alone.

This is not good. I’m feeling more and more depressed.

I was so depressed that I was hunched over like I was never before.

While I was maintaining the same position for a while, a shadow suddenly appeared in front of me.

“H-hey, are you okay?”

“Huh?”

I lifted up my face.

Immediately, my cells woke up and my heart rate increased.

“H-hello, Rina san.”

Tsukise Rina.

My girlfriend’s……No, my ex-girlfriend’s sister.

She has a medium bob with a slight reddish color.

Her face is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and there will not be a single spot to be seen.

She has double eyelashes and is long enough to cast shadows. She is so beautiful that anyone could easily mistake her for a celebrity.

She is two years older than me and currently in her third year of high school.

“Etto, what’s wrong? Are you on your way home from club activities?”

“No. I just came back from my part-time job.”

“I see. Keep up the good work.”

“Thanks. So, what’s troubling you? You seem to be very depressed.”

Rina san tilted her head slightly and looked deeply into my eyes.

Lying isn’t something that I’m good at……

There’s no point in hiding it.

I’ll tell her about being dumped by Yuika.

“-And with that, she’s suddenly breaking up with me.”

“I see. So that’s got your mind.”

“Yes…..”

“But, hmm…..Yuika, she dumped Takuto kun huh…”

Rina-san muttered in a muffled voice as she slowly swung on the swing next to me.

“Excuse me, what did you say?”

“No. it’s nothing. More importantly.”

“Yes….”

“Are you sure you want to end things like this?”

Can I break up with Yuika like this….

Of course not. I have no excuses.

I’m still not convinced..

“No it’s not. …….But, since Yuika’s feelings are far away, then i have no choice but to give up.”

“Hee, you’re so mature. Love does make you grow as a person.”

“P-please don’t make fun of me.”

“But, you know, you don’t have to be so obedient, do you?”

Is she trying to tell me that I should beg her to continue the soulless relationship?

Even if I go that far to get back to my original relationship, will it really be okay for both of us? 

At the very least, I don’t think Yuika’s feelings will ever turn to me again.

“No, I will give up. I think it can’t be helped.”

“So, Takuto’s feelings for Yuika were just like that.”

“…….T-that’s not true.”

“If you want to get back together with Yuika, you should try your best to make her want to go out with you again, Takuto.”

“Even if you do your best, she will eventually get annoyed and it’ll be over. It’s better to not get in contact with Yuika until she has a good impression of you.”

“I see. well, you have a point there.”

Rina san stood up from the swing with great energy and approached me.

She leaned forward and made eye contact with me, then she came up to my ear.

“W-what is it? Y-you’re too close…”

Rina san whispered softly to me, who was embarrassed.

“Then, I have a proposal for Takuto kun, who has become single after breaking up with Yuika.”

“P-proposal?

“Would you like to go out with me this time?”

Only thing that could have made that breakup any colder is if she did it by text.

I like that it’s not a dramatic break-up, there’s no cheating or arguing or other dramatic elements involved. She simply fell out of love, lost her passion. It feels kinda refreshing and realistic.
