On the first day, the Light Music Club ended without an incident. I was impressed by everyone’s expression as they listened to me and Iori san’s performance.

Then, I was on my way home alone with Iori san.

I’m alone with a girl.

It was a reenactment of reenactment in the morning. It was awkward.

I don’t know what to talk about. I feel like we have talked about music all the time.

When I was with Aika, I never ran out of things to talk about.

Or rather, I now know that Aika was the one who carried me.

It was a shameful thing for me to do.

“Sorry about today, Naru.”

Iori san cut in with an apologetic look on her face. Rather than an apology, I need a hand.

“Why are you sorry?”

“Because I’ve caused Naru a lot of trouble since this morning.”

her gaze was indeed painful. but I was honestly happy that Iori san was interested in me and was talking to me.

“I don’t think it was a nuisance, not at all. I was so happy that you invited me, I…iori.”


Her expression brightened.


“Then, can I invite you too tomorrow?”

“Of course, but I don’t know whether you like it or not, so why is that?”

“It’s not like I don’t know.”


“I hate it…..when I’m stuck like this, in a fog of uncertainty.”

My ears hurt.

“Maybe I like it… I don’t want to put a lid on that feeling without knowing it.”

“Y-you’re amazing Iori…if it was me, I’d be embarrassed.”

“Listening is a temporary embarrassment, isn’t it? It’s the same. Besides, if you don’t make sure, you may regret it forever. I don’t like that.”

As expected from someone who’s older, it’s a wonderful way of thinking that I can’t imitate.

“But….it’s not like you have zero embarrassment, right?  I’m also trying to be brave.”

Blushing Iori san. She’s too cute. She’s indeed the school idol.

“It’s my first time… That’s why I don’t know what to do, so this was the only thing I could do.

I’m glad you aren’t bothered by it, Naru.”

Her smile is dazzling. It’s too dazzling.

“Just for someone like me….I’m honored.”

“As a result, when I say that I like you, how will you respond, Naru?”

—My heartbeat suddenly became more intense.

I wonder what kind of answer I will give.

My feelings are still lingering over Aika.

I suppose one isn’t ready for a relationship till they experience life. MC wasn’t ready for it(Even though i like early romance) But i suppose it depends on the MC maturity or wisdom as well

This girl is really straightforward and not shy about voicing her feelings. She doesn’t let embarrassment limit her social interactions. I like that.
