“Tomorrow, I’m going to your house in the morning, Ikkun. So go to bed early.”

“Okay”

—————————————————-

I’m on my way home after dropping Saori off.

A lot happened today….or rather, too many things happened.

But if I can get through tomorrow, the weekend will come.

I want to spend the weekend in peace.

With that in mind. I went to my house.

But I’ll be alone when I get home. It’s so lonely.

“I’m home.”

Though no one is home. It has become a habit for me to say this when I arrive home.

I wonder if someone might be home.

Anyway, I drink some water, change into my loungewear, and watch some anime.

There’s a robot anime on the run.

It’s good for development.

After finishing the preparations, I went to the living room to play an anime on Net Video. The main character was happy just to be with his family. But his mother was deliberately murdered. Seems like he and his sister are trapped together like hostages.

Then one day, he gets his power and starts to protect his sister, his last family member, and pursue his own ideals at the same time. In the process, he ends up antagonizing his best friend, and in the end, he loses everything.

This means that, ‘He who tries to catch two rabbits at the same time will never catch any of them’ It seems to me that this is exactly what the saying goes.

There are several other works with similar endings. The protagonist is just trying to achieve the happiness he wants, but if the way he’s doing is the wrong, he loses everything.

This is similar to my current situation.

In the end, it comes down to what is most important to me. Especially in this case, I feel that if I try to do everything at the same time, I will fail.

Anime is a great way to learn. That’s what I thought. I’ve reached the end of the day, so it’s time to take a shower and go to bed…. Then I checked my phone and found a message.

Rina: What are you doing now?

Ichi: I’m still awake. But I’m going to take a shower now.

Rina: If you’re done, message me.

What’s it about? I wondered, but I went to take a shower anyway.

I felt a bit nervous. I finished earlier than usual and went back to my room after wiping my hair properly. Well, I don’t usually use a hair dryer.

Since I shortened my hair, I don’t feel the need for it anymore. I had let it grow long for a while because it was such a hassle to cut it, but in the end, it was easier to keep it short. Thanks Saori, for telling me.

Ichi: I’m done.

Rina: So fast. Are you always this fast?

Ichi: Isn’t it normal for men to take a shower this fast?

Rina: Wow. So simple.

Ichi: By the way, what do you want?

Lina : Can’t I call you even if you don’t have anything to do ?

Ichi : It’s not like that. I was thinking of going to bed.

Rina: You know. I couldn’t think of anything for today’s diary. Do you have any?

Ichi: Ate curry for lunch. Or something about a cute cat?

Rina: I don’t have a cat at home.

After that, the messages continued….

To be honest, I’m about to fall asleep. I’m so nervous when I get messages……. It’s fine if I get a reply as soon as I send it. But if I wait for a while. I’m going to fall asleep.

Ichi: Sorry. I’m really sleepy. I’m going to go to sleep now.

Lina: Okay. See you tomorrow.

Sigh…..tomorrow too….

It’s nice, but it’s a little nerve-wracking. It’s pretty tiring. This kind of thing.

I couldn’t even concentrate on the horse social game I was playing in between.

I have to train a horse at least once a day…

But it’s also lonely to just watch Anime by myself. I guess I won’t have to say no.

Ichi: Got it. I’ll see you tomorrow.

Well, I said I’m going to sleep. But I haven’t finished training yet… The new scenario I’ve started is taking up a lot of my time………. I keep doing it because the girls are cute, but to be honest, it makes me sleepy.

Hmm. Enough. I’ll leave the rest tomorrow. Good night zzzzzzzzz.

Childhood Friend Saori’s Point of View

I looked back on today’s events after Ikkun dropped me off at home.

When I woke up this morning, I was surprised to see a message saying that Rina was staying over at his house. When I actually went there, I was hugged by Ikkun, and it was nice to smell him up close for the first time in a while.

When I was little, we used to touch each other like we did this morning. As soon as my breasts got bigger, Ikkun started to be less casual with me.

No, it was more like he was holding himself back. I realized that this morning. It was because I was hit by Ikkun’s……. I didn’t know it could get that big and hard…..

I wanted to touch him more, but…. Rina is at home. I was also a little bit cold with him. But the atmosphere was a little better.

Okay, I’m going to be closer to him more from now on. But there was a problem at the school… The preparation for the school festival wasn’t going as well as planned…

Our school is going to have a cultural festival soon after the summer break. Apparently, some of the classes haven’t decided what they’re going to put on and what they’re going to do. I think it should be on a first-come, first-served basis. The third-year student who’s responsible for this meeting is an opportunistic person who wants to hear everyone’s opinions, and indecisive.

Because of this, the meeting is confusing and it’s difficult to make a decision. It delays the meeting. As a result, this puts a burden on the class committee members. And finally, a negative chain of events is about to begin, where the burden falls on ‘everyone’.

Today, I was told that if we started the meeting after school, it would take too long to make a decision, so let’s have a meeting after lunch. That’s not the problem……

If that happens, there will be others who will rebel. That’s true, isn’t it? That’s all I could think. Ishii kun, a member of the class committee who went with me, also had a bitter look on his face.

I was talking with Ishii kun about various things in the afternoon, and we decided that it would be better for us to talk directly with each class member and hold a discussion outside of the meeting. Even if it doesn’t go well, it would be better than doing nothing at all. I guess this is what is called ‘laying the groundwork’.

First of all, I think I should talk with the people in the class who have already decided on the candidates for the program. I think I can get more sympathy that way.

But that would take up a lot of time. I won’t be able to spend time with Ikkun after entering high school. It’s a nuisance. Really.

Sigh, tomorrow will be depressing, too… Because it is. I’m going to see Ikkun tomorrow morning.

Rina will be here on Friday night. I can’t make time if I don’t see him in the morning.

I ran for class committee this year with the intention of doing my best in various things, but… Enough. I don’t want to be a class committee member next year.
