The doorbell rang, I opened the front door, and there was,

“I’m here♪”

There was Rina.


“What’s up with you all of a sudden?”

She didn’t message me, right? I try to think back, but I can’t remember.

“Eh-. I can’t come?”

Rina pouted while saying that.

“I didn’t say that. But it’s so sudden. My parents aren’t home right now, you know?”

“I know ♪ It’ll be fine if it’s you, Itta kun ♡ It’s okay ♡”

‘It’s okay♡’ my ass, what do you mean?Don’t tell me it’s ‘that’……?

But I don’t have a condom……. Didn’t the convenience store have one…?

Not that ! ! ! Why am I so excited. 

“F….for now, just come in. It’s late and it must be freezing outside.”

With that, I lead her inside the house.

Rina looked around the house and observed with curiosity.

 “Not much has changed. Only a little more stuff in here.”

“Well, things don’t change that much in three or four years.”

“Hmm? Is that true??”

The girl in front of me started grinning while saying such things.

“Then, even if I search around Itta kun’s room, would I find anything that has changed?”

Eh……my room is messy….

Come to think of it, it was because Saori came yesterday.

She stayed in my room, but I hope…..she didn’t notice.

I hope she didn’t notice…I mean, she cleaned my room before that, so…maybe it wasn’t just yesterday.

“Who knows? Don’t you know what you’re talking about?”

…..I’m screwed, I can’t make any excuses.

“Well, that’s fine. I came here today because I wanted to tell you something, Itta kun. Can we sit down for now?”

I said go ahead and pulled out a chair.

Then, I filled a glass of water from the pitcher and offered it to her.

“Here, water. What else do you want to drink? There’s only barley tea and soy milk. If you want to wait a bit, I can at least offer you instant coffee.”

“Water’s fine.”

With that, I brought my own cup that was in front of the TV.

When I went to sit down across from Rina, she stopped me.

“Would you like me to sit next to you?”

She said so, so I sat next to her.

“So, why did you come here today?’

“I wanted to apologize for what happened today.”

? What are you talking about? If you’re talking about the rib steak, I brought it home, okay?

As I was thinking that, Rina continued.

“You know……me and Saori said bad things about you……Itta kun….”

“Oh that thing……,but it’s true, isn’t it?”

“Well, yes, but the two of us don’t need to say it together, right?”

…….Well, yeah…Even one person can make my mind quite wrecked.

And now, Rina, who turned out to be my childhood friend, said that to me.

“Also, I thought I should say it again properly.”

What is it? I was about to ask her.

“Will you make me your real girlfriend?”


“Yeah. The real one. I said before that it was okay  to fake it, but I would stay by your side forever, you know? Because I’m a loner now. I don’t need anyone else. That person is only you, Itta kun, is that okay?”

Saying that, Rina laid her hand on top of mine.

It’s soft.

 “You know what? We can do this anytime. We can go beyond that, okay?”

Saying that, she leaned closer to me.

She smelled good, and I was almost drawn to her.

“Eh…….seriously? You’re not lying, are you?”

“Yeah, I’m serious, you’re so skeptical.”

Rina is a bit troublesome. 

With that expression on my face, she moved away from me. 

..….What I was worried about was showing in my expression. surely.

The fact that she moved away from me means that it’s not a relationship that Rina wants to have with someone who has that look on their face.

But, our hands are still stuck with each other.

To be honest, I think my hands are sweating a lot.

Either way, there’s something I have to tell her.

“I’m still….not over Saori. She rejected me saying that she prefers someone older.”

“Yeah. So?”

“I want to confess to her again. But I don’t know how I should confess…..”

Rina didn’t respond. I feel like my hand is being held tightly.

“No matter what happens, I’ll be by your side… Look, our seats are next to each other, and right now we’re next to each other, right?”

“….That’s true….we’re always next to each other. Thank you.”

It’s comfortable. This kind of distance is just right.

There is no one at home. I was lonely. Definitely.

“So, what are you going to do today? It’s late. I have to take you home.”

“I’m staying over.”

“Eh? What did you say?”

“I brought a sleepover set♡”

“No wait, it’s not a good idea to stay at a place with a guy alone. Have you told your parents? I’m sure you don’t want to get scolded later.”

“Don’t worry♪  I messaged them that I’m staying at my childhood friend Saori chan’s place today.”

What if they find out……..

I don’t want any trouble. I don’t…

That’s what I think, but Rina who’s in front of me looked really happy.

Looking at that face, I wonder if it’s okay just for a day.

But there is something I have to ask.
