I, Ichikawa Aoi, had been feeling uneasy even after I left Komiya kun in the morning.

From noon today, he was to be congratulated by Tohno san and others.
But I don’t know anything concrete, and I don’t even know who will be there.

The members who come are limited in terms of his friendships.
Tohno san, Fujimoto kun ……and after that, maybe Shinozuka san?

Other than that, I don’t know of anyone else he gets along with.
So that accelerated my anxiety even more.

Only Shinozuka san knows the fact that he and I are dating.
It’s not that I’m hiding it anymore, but I’m not going to go out of my way to make it public, so it still remains unknown.

I think this is making things a little tricky.
He is not particularly aware of it, but as far as I know, there are several girls who have expressed interest in him.

One of them is also my best friend, and it’s an indescribable situation.
My head hurts thinking about when to confide that.

In the end, I could not suppress such a heartbeat, so I came to the station where he had promised to meet her.

“Is it…..only the two of them?”

Such murmurs overflowed as I checked Komiya kun and Tohno san from afar.

That possibility was not impossible.
I once asked about how she, Tohno san feels
She didn’t say it clearly, but she definitely has a thing for him.

“…………”

Others, as well, may simply be envious of that fact.
I may be….

I shook my head and shook off those feelings.

I watch their movements. They seem to be moving.
I moved sneakily along with them.

Sounds like something out of a spy movie.
No. That’s like a wife who collects evidence of her cheating husband’s infidelity.
If anything, I’m more comfortable with the second one.

They headed for a commercial complex near the station.

“It’s totally not a date..”

At the moment, they do not seem to be planning to meet up with anyone.
It is hard to imagine going to the cinema to celebrate together in the first place.

This means that the idea of celebrating together was a lie and that this was Tohno san’s goal from the beginning.

“Fujimoto kun must have been the one who suggested it.”

I bought one ticket for the same movie as they had bought and entered the museum alone so as not to be discovered.

This is not good. In many ways.
Eh, the place we are going is……..

“Et-to, cinema?”
“Yeah. Actually, I’m thinking of going out to a nice restaurant with you to celebrate, but I have some time before then, so I thought we could watch a movie together. Is that a bad idea?”
“Nonono, I-It’s fine ! I, too, wanted to see the movie!”

Teary-eyed, upturned eyes are not fair. There is no way I can refuse a request like that.
Where did you learn such a strange trick? Did someone put you up to it?

Sure, I can just go out to dinner if you just want to celebrate.
So that was the reason for meeting at such an early hour in the afternoon.

Tohno san is well prepared and buys the ticket she reserved in advance at the ticketing machine.
When I told her I would pay for it, she did not accept it because it was my birthday.

The film’s title is [ To the tomorrow you]
It was a romantic film.

But are the three of us, including Naka, planning to go to a movie ……? And it was a romance …….

After handing the ticket to the clerk, we entered the fourth theater.
We even bought popcorn and juice for the two of us before we left.

This may or may not be a date.
A date at the cinema with someone you used to like.

Not that I don’t think about it, but it was someone else who comes to mind now.
I haven’t even come to her yet. Such guilt runs through me.

Then, after a few short advertisements, the main feature of the film begins.

“It’s kind of exciting.”
“Ah, yes”

Indeed, it is a little nerve-wracking to watch a romantic movie next to a girl in this dimly lit room.
Such tension made me thirsty, and the juice I had just purchased was running low at a brisk pace.

The story begins with the main character, a man who has just transferred to a new school.
There, the protagonist is reunited with a childhood friend whom he thought was a man.

“I’ve seen something like this before.”
“Ah, This is actually based on a manga. It looks like they made a live-action version from it. I think it’s because they did a lot of commercials on TV.”
“I see. So that’s why.”
“Yeah……..A”
“………? ugh”

Inside a movie theater. Out of consideration for the patrons around us, our faces were pretty close to each other.
It’s like snuggling up already.

“Ehem ehem”
“”Tss””

I heard what sounded like a coughing sound from behind me, and Tohno san and I came to our senses and hurriedly pulled our faces apart.

My face is hot.
And Tohno san’s profile, illuminated by the light of the film, also seemed to be slightly red.

…… would it have been that noisy?
I thought I was talking pretty quietly. …… My bad.

The main story continues to progress from then on.
The main character was interested in his childhood friend, but he had to get engaged to someone his parents had decided to marry. That partner was a popular girl in his grade.

…… Somewhat deja vu.
I didn’t realize that you can’t date the person you love and get engaged to someone else.

From there, the love triangle becomes entangled.

I found myself hooked on that movie. I don’t often watch romance movies, but I was drawn to the realistic depiction and the emotions of the characters.

Right now, the main character and his childhood friend are hugging each other, expressing their feelings for each other.

I pick up the popcorn placed between Tohno san’s seat and mine, with such a scene on the sidelines.

She reached out while looking at the screen and I didn’t notice the hand reaching out from the other side.

“”……..Ah….””

Our hands touched and we stopped at each other.
My eyes met Tohno san’s next to me, and my heart spluttered.

Gakon. (SFX)

“S-Sorry!”
“M-Me too”

This time, something hit my seat from behind, causing us to huff again and apologize to each other.

After that, everything went on without incident until the climactic scene.
In the end, the fiancée could not win over his childhood friend, and the childhood friend and the protagonist had a happy ending.

The end roll is played and the lights are turned on in the theater.

“It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be.”
“Yeah. I’m so impressed.”

Tohno san’s eyes were a little watery, as if she had apparently been moved to tears by the final scene.

“Okay, let’s go.”
“Okay let’s go”

I was about to get up from my seat.
I felt a firm squeeze on my shoulder.

“Tss”

Tohno san does not notice this and moves forward.
Just as I was wondering what was going on, someone came up to my ear and whispered.

“You looked like you were having a lot of fun.”
“Eh…..?”

That one word sent chills down my spine. No way, was it …… that was behind me?

The person who whispered to me quickly left me.

“Are? What’s wrong, Komiya kun?”

Tohno san noticed my delay, turned around and asked.

“N-No, it’s nothing. I’ll be right there.”

I couldn’t look back.
