“I understand. Please go out with me, Rina san.”

“Okay. Then, please take care of me from now on, darling.”

Within half a day of breaking up with my girlfriend, I ended up going out with my ex-girlfriend’s sister.

In spite of myself, I think it’s a ridiculous development…….

Most of all, I was surprised that Rina san had feelings for me.

“D-darling, don’t call me that….”

“Is that so? Doesn’t that sound lovey-dovey?”

“It sound stupid.”

“Whoa, so harsh.”

Rina san opened her hands quickly and laughed bitterly.

I heavily stood up  from the swing and scratched my cheeks.

“Um, then, shall we go home?”

“Yeah. See you.”

Rina san waved her hands at me.

No, that’s not what I meant. ……

“We’re dating, aren’t we?

“Yeah. That’s right.”

“Then, I’ll walk you home.”

“I’m fine. It’s not that far.”

“No, it’s already dark. Let me walk you home.”

“I-I see…… Then, I’ll take your word for it and let you take me home.”

Rina san smiled embarrassedly.

When I started taking steps, Rina san also followed half a step behind me.

The distance between us is so close that I couldn’t imagine before. Every time her sweet scent hit my nostrils, my state of mind became disorder.

“Hey, Takuto kun.”

“Y-yes, what is it?”

I was focusing on Rina san when she called my name.

Rina san’s cheeks slightly blushed.

“A-aren’t you going to hold my hand?”

My shoulders twitched up and down, and I gasped.

O-of course…….

If we’re going  out, it would be more natural to hold hands and go home together.

“Shall I hold your hands?”

“Hn.”

Rina san took out her right hand.

I held it gently with my left hand.

Rina san’s mouth breaks into a smile and she closes the distance between us to the point where our shoulders almost touch each other’s.

“Are you perhaps nervous?”

“Of course I do.”

“Hmm. Even though you did it all the time with Yuika?”

“Well, that’s not the same thing.”

“Is your heart beating fast?”

“It would be crazy if it didn’t….”

You’re crazy if you can maintain your calmness.

I would like to be praised for barely being able to have a conversation.

Rina san loosened her mouth even more.

“I see. Hmmm.”

“How about you, Rina san?”

“What do you mean?”

“Don’t you think of anything when you hold hands with me?”

“No, I don’t. I think that boys’ hands are surprisingly firm and their hearts are beating fast.”

“You can’t talk about people like that. ….Eh?  Rina san, have you ever dated someone before?”

Suddenly, I spoke out the question that came out of my mind.

Rina san’s cheeks filled with air.

‘Whoa. You’re going to assert dominance over your girlfriend that you just started dating?”

‘No, I didn’t mean it like that. You’re as beautiful as ever, Rina san, so I thought you had a lot of experience with relationships……”

“No way. I’m quite single-minded.”

“Eh?”

“Ah, forget about earlier. Pretend you didn’t hear that.”

“No, I can’t pretend I didn’t hear that.”

“Forget it !”

Rina san’s cheeks blushed and her lips pouted.

When I took my eyes off her, she said something in a voice that seems to fade away.

 “…It’s just a matter of words, or rather, there was simply no one other than Takuto kun who I wanted to date. I’ve had more experience in getting a lot of confessions than you, Takuto kun.”

“What am I going to do if you start to assert dominance, Rina san….”

Damn.

My heart started to beat faster than normal.

It was loud enough to reach my ears.

“I don’t want you to get the wrong idea, so I’ll just say this.”

“Ah, okay.”

“I didn’t want you and Yuika to break up, Takuto kun. So I hid my feelings for Takuto kun. I hoped that your relationship would go well. I could tell by seeing how much you love Yuka, Takuto kun.”

“…………”

“That’s why, I think it would be better if the two of you started dating again… B-but, if Takuto-kun’s feelings turned towards me, I want you to put aside Yuika’s past love affairs and only look at me.” 

Rina san revealed what’s in her heart with an unusually shy manner.

I couldn’t see Rina san’s face.                                                                                                                                             I turned away to hide my cheeks that were completely blushed. My body is burning.

“I’m weak against that kind of single-mindedness, so please don’t do it.”

“Hee, so you have a weakness for single-minded girls?”

“There’s no man who isn’t weak.”

“I see. Then, shall I tell you more of my single-minded episodes?”

“P-please don’t. That’s not fair.”

“Not fair, hey.”

“Did I say something weird?”

“No, I just think you’re guilty of a lot of things. You stole my first love without realizing it.”

Rina stares at me with an intense gaze.

I have no idea what she’s talking about, so a lot of question marks appeared in my mind.

However, I think there was some kind of trigger that made Rina san start to like me.

“Please tell me. I want to apologize if I did something wrong.”

“I don’t want to.”

“Why?”

“If you want to know so badly, just ask yourself.”

If I could’ve known that, then I wouldn’t have bothered to ask Rina san.

As I was accumulating frustration, Rina san suddenly stopped. Since we were holding hands, my steps was stopped as well.

“What’s wrong?”

“C-come here for a sec.”

Rina san pulled me to hide behind the wall.

Her voice is filled with impatience.

I hid myself without knowing what was going on.

“W-what is it, so suddenly….”

“T-that’s….”

Even though Rina san was puzzled, she weakly pointed at something.

As I was told to, I looked and—.

“Eh?” 

I froze in the spot unconsciously.

Her hair is slightly bluish.

Her hair length was adjusted so that it just touches her shoulders, and she has a slender figure.

Although from a distance, there was no doubt that she was my ex-girlfriend , Tsukise Yuika.

And next to her, there was a man.

Good job on the translation of “assert dominance” – when I read through the native the first time I thought this might come out literally translated as “mounting” his girlfriend.

I like the banter between them, Rina has an interesting and likeable personality so far.
