I was invited to dinner at the Kubota household, but I politely declined because it was too impudent. I guess she understood my feelings, and Iori agreed with me.
When I returned home, I found the door unlocked. It was probably my mother.
“Welcome home, you’re late.”
“Yeah, I was at a friend’s house. More importantly, you should lock the door properly.”
“Oh, sorry, sorry, I forgot.”
“Jeez, even though you’re a police officer,. why are you being so careless?”
That’s right, my mother is a police officer. She’s so busy that she spends most of her time in hotels and rarely comes home.
“Don’t ‘tehee’ me. Be more careful.”
“Okay, I get it, you’re so nosy, Naru.”
“No, I’m not nosy.”
“By friend, you mean girlfriend, right?”
“W…..why is that?”
“Because there’s a nice smell coming from you, Naru……so, how far have you gone?”
“W….we haven’t done anything !”
“Even though you came back smelling so good, you good-for-nothing..”
“Don’t call me that !”
My mother and I usually talk like we were friends like this.
“Since you broke up with Aika chan, you were depressed for a long time, so I was secretly worried.”
“Thanks for that……”
“What youth…….introduce your girlfriend to me next time !”
I like to introduce her to you, but when are you coming home ! I wanted to say that, but if I said that, my mother would get really depressed, so I swallowed my words.
“Do you want something to eat?”
“Oh, yes, I do.”
It’s been a while since my mother cooked. I had bought some bread at a convenience store, but I’ll eat it for lunch tomorrow.
My mother’s home-cooked food looks really bad, but on the contrary, it tastes great.
Over dinner, I told my mother how I first met Iori. My mother listens to my story happily. It was our first mother and son time in a while.
“Oh, by the way, Naru, your father and Rinrin are coming back during the summer vacation, so look forward to seeing them.”
“Eh ! You didn’t tell me !”
“I just told you.”
“I told you that I haven’t heard any word of it !”
“It’s fine, it’s fine, we’re family.”
“Maybe the other two didn’t think so……”
“Well, those two……they’re a little distorted when it comes to expressing their affection.”
I prefer normal affection.
“Well, that’s where the mature person has to fit in to make it work.”
“Jeez, you’re so self-indulgent……”
My father teaches guitar at a music college in the US.
Rinrin is my twin sister who lives with my father in the United States.
The two of them are father and daughter who say what they think straight to the point.
Since I was a child, I’ve been subjected to their verbal abuse.
I don’t hate them because they are my family, but……I have a bit of a hard time with them.
