“I’ll stop by the drugstore on my way home. There might be something there, thank you.”

“Yeah. Good luck.”

Rina saw me off with a smile.

But what I want you to do is not that smile.


After I dropped Rina off at her house, I went back to the nearest station and went by train.


I got hugged by Rina. And then she sniffed my armpit.

I was remembering how she sniffed me on the side and 、、、、 the distance between us.

As expected, it’s too much of a shock to be sniffed by a girl。。。。 Ugh, my head.

I searched on my phone.

‘How to suppress the armpit smell’.

I then noticed Happy Heaven’s online website among the several site that came up.

As I scrolled down the screen, I looked at various things. Wow. There’s a lot to choose from.

Gel type, liquid type, sheet type to reduce perspiration.

…I see. A lot of guys have the same problem…

Because of this, I’m embarrassed to ask the drug store clerk.

While thinking about that. The train arrived at the station where my house is located.

Then, I headed to the drugstore near the station.

Drugstores these days are open until late at night, which is very convenient.

I thought I’d ask the clerk, but when I actually arrived at the store, for some reason, I was hesitant to ask.

I tried to look by myself, but where is it? I’m not sure.

Besides, Saori might call me lazy if I’m too laid back.

I should ask the clerk.

“Um. Excuse me.”

“Welcome. What can I help you with?”

“Um, well, do you have anything like this? Something to control odors.”

Saying so, I show my phone screen to the white-coated clerk.

Then, the clerk guided me without any Ill intent.

It’s natural not to rush customers, but for some reason my heart is racing.

I was nervous like a student who buys a condom and is not told anything about it. 

No, I haven’t bought one yet. I haven’t.

It’s because I often get excited with light novels. I’m sure that was the reason.

And then, in a weird way, I thought no one cares anymore.

When you get used to it, if you ask a female clerk ‘just a condom’ and buy one…

I’m sure they would be shocked…and that’s dangerous when you get used to everything.

I can imagine such a future rather concretely.

I still don’t know who would be my partner at that time.

“The item on this shelf is what you are looking for, isn’t it?:

“Thank you very much. Anyway, I’m looking for something that will suppress the smell properly.”

“It depends on your physical condition, but I think this gel type or the type that suppresses perspiration would be good.”

“Thank you very much. I’ll try to find it in here.”

“Yes. Then, please take your time in making your selection.”

With that, the clerk left, shaking his white coat.

Was he a pharmacist or something like that? I don’t really know the detail.

“Hmm. Which one shall I buy?”

Anyway, I compared the recommended ones.

Some of them are very expensive. Is there disposable sheet type that can be use?

It seems to be expensive if I use them all the time.

If you are an athlete, it might be possible. But I’m a go-home club member, so I don’t need it that much.

Oh, this is a gel type that also suppresses perspiration.

It’s a little pricey though. I think I’ll go with this one.

It’s better than buying a cheap one and wasting it because I can’t use it.

Well, I think this is what I’ll buy today.

I haven’t heard from Saori, so what should I do?

Do I stay here and kill time?

Or should I go to a nearby Donkey chain store?

Okay, let’s go to the Donkey chain store. There are more things to do there.

Just to look at the machines is interesting enough.

With that in mind, I paid my bill and went to the Donkey.

As usual, I was overwhelmed by all the stuff.

And the store is small. Really cramped.

There were so many items lined up in a small space that I couldn’t help but look around.

Well, I don’t really want to buy anything in particular. But I was overwhelmed.

When I went to the back of the store, I found a cosmetics corner next to the stairs.

I somehow entered and looked at the products.

Come to think of it, Saori’s birthday is coming up soon. It crossed my mind.

I wondered if she would be pleased if I bought her something like this now.

But I didn’t know if she would like any of them.

Until middle school.

I could just buy some delicious food, chocolate, or even Kantorimamu (Japanese snack) and give it to her and she would be happy.

But now, I’m not sure….she’d be happy to receive the same thing until now. I don’t know if she wants it or not.

While I was thinking about this and looking at the samples,

I received a notification on my phone.

Saori: I’m about to arrive, so pick me up.

Ichi: I’m at a Donkey store near the station. Do you want to come here?

Saori: Okay, I’m going there. Wait for me.

Ichi: Okay, Roger that. I’ll be waiting for you.

“Well, I’m going to ask Saori about her…….birthday present.”
