I had to get a few stitches as a result of that incident, and I was living with a limp in my right hand.

“Hey, come on, turn around!”
“That’s why! told you I can eat with my left hand!”
“It doesn’t matter right. You should be honored to be fed by me! Now, hold still. You’ll spill it!”
“Ayako san, why did You bring this one in?”
“Because it’s funny.”

Ayako-san was that kind of person.
Every morning, Asagiri went to me, who was unable to use my right hand for a while, and took care of me, and bought me things.
I told her not to worry about it, but apparently she couldn’t help thinking it was her fault.

For me, it was unbearable to have someone else come in at a time when I didn’t want anyone to disturb me, when I was getting up from bed in the morning.

Moreover, she cleaned up the mess and tried to feed me, and she was very kind to me.

Feeding me food is so embarrassing, in the normal sense of the word, that I don’t want her to do it. This is aaaaannnnn, right?
And the whole time, Ayako san was smiling at me, which really annoyed me. I don’t know why they get along so well.

“Oh, it’s that late already! You eat slowly! Ayako san, I’m off.”
“Yes, go ahead.”

I was dragged along, and Asagiri took me to the school.
You haven’t forgotten that I’m injured, have you?

“Good morning.”
“Morning, Asagiri-san.”
“Yeah, good morning.”

Despite all that had happened to Asagiri, she was smiling more than before.
The conflict with her parents, her brother’s true intentions, the list goes on and on, but all of them are shocks that should have been enough to destroy her psyche.

But now, she seems to have gotten over it.

“Asagiri-san, she is a beautiful woman, but lately she’s been getting too bad, hasn’t she?”
“I can see that. I might have seriously fallen in love with her. ……”
“She’s free right now, right?”
“Hey, I’m not going to let you get away with it!”

The boys were amused by this, and even the girls began to talk to her more often. Asagiri herself was no longer rejecting students other than Kurase, as she had done before.
As for Asagiri herself, she was annoyed at the increased number of confessions she was getting.
It is true that her expression has softened, but the real root of her feelings is probably still the same.

After that, Asagiri said she had something to do in the staff room and parted on the way.
As I was heading to the classroom alone, I was lightly tapped on the shoulder from behind.

“Ito-kun. Good morning.”
“Oh, Kurase. Morning.”
“Is your hand okay?”
“Well, it still hurts a little.”
“I see. …… Hey, can I pick you up in the morning if you want?”
“Why ……?”
“Well,…… I thought it might be hard to get ready if you can’t use your right hand. ……? I just wanted to see if there was anything I could do to help.”
“…………”

What should I do? Asagiri alone is too much for me to handle, and even Kurase?
I mean, didn’t Asagiri tell her? She said she was going there herself.

I don’t understand why Asagiri didn’t tell Kurase. You’re best friends, you know.

“…… no?”

It’s not fair to look at me with such gaze.
What do you want me to do? No, I don’t mind the two of you being together, but …… that’s not the point.

I’d rather be alone and at ease, but give me a break.

“W-Well, I’ll think about it.”
“Yes!”

After such a vague reply, we entered the classroom, took our seats, and class began as usual.

And another day, thankfully boring, passed.

“What are you doing here?”
“Naa……?”

It was fourth period, and I somehow felt like skipping class, so I was lying on the rooftop.

It was something I was very grateful for, but if the student who lent it to me was found to be slacking off, I would not be able to avoid immediate confiscation.

Still, I’m sure I’ve had a lot to think about these past few days, and I’m tired. I’ve saved so many lives, it wouldn’t hurt to skip a class once in a while.

“Yoi shotto!”

The girl who called out to me – Asagiri – sat down next to me.
I looked at her sideways and saw that she was holding back her hair, which was blowing in the wind.

“It’s not good to skip class,”
“I don’t need you to tell me that.”
“Besides, this is my secret resting place.”
“Hee, so you don’t mind if I tell Kirihara-sensei that you’ve been skipping class here?”
“Stop it.”

I can’t beat Asagiri in a verbal fight anymore. Huh? Did I ever win?
Well, never mind. What is she doing here?

“……”
“I hate you.”

No, really, what are you doing here? You come to a guy who’s slacking off and go out of your way to declare that you don’t like him? What kind of harassment is that?

“I thought so.”

You thought so?

“Because my first impression of you was that you were a pervert. If I had called the police right then and there, you’d have caught for sure.”
“I’m sorry about that …….”
“It’s all right. Now I know you might have been telling the truth.”

Is that ……?

“And I’m sorry.”
“Sorry for what, ……?”
“I’m the one who didn’t get it.”
“What the…”
“I realized something. I thought I was relieved to forget the past, but I realized that I could not escape from the past.”

Asagiri continued to talk, looking straight ahead.

“I’m going to face many things more. I’m going to face myself and you. About you, too.”

About me?

“So when you are troubled by something, I will do the same for you. In the same way. ……”

Asagiri was suddenly at a loss for words. When I looked at her face, for some reason, her face was red.
What is it?

“A-anyway! What I want to say is not this, but ……!”
“I’m not running away, so say it slowly.”
“…… Yeah.”

Then, after a short pause, Asagiri, who had been watching the ground until a moment ago, looked at me.

“Thank you. For everything, including my brother. I really, really appreciate it. It’s all because of you. Thank you.”

I turned over and turned my back to Asagiri.

“I was embarrassed to be thanked by …… Asagiri.”

I was embarrassed. I was embarrassed to be thanked so genuinely. The fact that I thought that Asagiri’s smile, which was so straight, was so cute.

“─ ─ ─ Idiot!”

The small, always abusive words came into my ears.
And the chime rings as well.

“Let’s go back. It’s lunchtime. Nanami might be worried.”
“Maybe. I don’t want her to think there’s something wrong with me and Asagiri.”
“You don’t like it if people think you have something to do with …… me?”
“…… that’s not why I’m saying that. ……”
“Fufu, I’m just kidding. Come on, let’s go. Arase!”

I was a little puzzled by the expression she had never shown before. Asagiri laughed and ran ahead.
…… hmm? Did someone call?

***

“Kyaa!”

***

Looking at me, Asagiri, who was running without looking ahead, trips
Then she fell down and exposed her skirt. I could see such a future.

I wonder what it’s like. ……

“Kyaa!”

And the same way, a small scream leaks out from Asagiri.
But the result is different from what I saw earlier.

Asagiri didn’t scrape, and I didn’t see any pink underwear in her skirt. But …….

“…………”
“…………”

I wonder why this happens. ……

Now me and Asagiri are like this. We are in the same state as when we first met.
In other words, I am holding Asagiri in my arms.

“…………..”

Ah, this is the one I’ve seen before.
I let go of the arm holding Asagiri and prepared myself.

“〜〜〜〜!!”
“…… Huh?”

But it didn’t turn out the way I imagined.

Asagiri’s face turned red like an apple and she hid her face with her arms and walked out of the rooftop.

I don’t understand …….
I don’t know why Asagiri acted that way, or why she reacted differently than before. I’m not sure why Asagiri did that, or why she reacted differently than she did before.

I left the rooftop and still couldn’t get my heart to stop racing.
He was still on the rooftop.

“Phew. …….”

I let out a small exhale to regulate my raspy breathing.

“face, hot …….”

I looked up at him lightly with my hand, but the redness did not go away. If I go back to the classroom like this, Nanami will definitely ask me what happened.

“Aaah Mouu!”

I can’t help it.

He helped me like that, he gave himself up for me like that, and he shattered the trauma in …… me like that so easily.

“It’s impossible not to….L-like him,…..!!”

In the past few days, when I sublimate my feelings for that guy in my own words, I’ve become extraordinarily conscious and unable to stop.
I say it out loud and my face gets hot again.

The guy still has no sign of coming out of the rooftop.

“What am I going to do about it …… Mouuu”

But the corners of my mouth were still up.

My heart still beating, but it would not stop for a while. I slowly awakened my hot cheeks and decided to go back to the classroom first.

The thumping of my heart had never felt so good.

Late afternoon.
A few days had passed since the incident. My right hand still hasn’t healed.

And Asagiri, for some reason, started to look away from me immediately, and our conversation was somewhat faltering. And I was still having a bit of a hard time talking to Kurase. I don’t know why, but I have a strange feeling. Well, we are on good terms with each other.

“Kuh ……”

Thinking about that, I naturally yawned.
And it also came as a surprise.

***

“So, this would be 2√3.”

I was in a math class.
As I was copying the board into my notebook, I looked outside at the sometimes clear sky.

“!!?”

At that moment, something unbelievable appeared in my vision.

“Eh!? Didn’t something fall down just now?”
“Kyaaaaaahhhh!”

At the same time, the classroom became noisy. I looked out the window and saw screams going up.
The state of the classroom was chaos.

***

“Hey, Ito. Is my class boring?”
“!!!”

The next thing I knew, the teacher was standing right in front of me.

“S-Sensei. I’m sorry. I have to go to the bathroom. ……”
“Take a leak.”
“Eeh!??”
“I’m kidding. Get your ass back here. Yeah, I don’t mind skipping class if you’re going to the girl.”

What the hell is that teacher talking about?

I left the classroom to the sound of laughter and headed for the rooftop.

I thought I was relatively calm these days, but it seems I’m still being swept away by this prediction of the future.
I had no choice but to go change such a shitty future today.

[Afterword]

Thank you for reading this far. This concludes the chapter.
At first, I did not think that so many people would read this book.
There were various heavy developments, but I was filled with joy every time I received feedback.

I think I was relatively satisfied and was able to write up to the epilogue. Although the number of words increased in various ways that I hadn’t planned.

The last part of the story is a little bit like a preview of the next story.
I am not sure what I will do next time, but I am not sure what I will do now that I have reached the end of the story.

Will I continue updating or write another story? Since so many people have followed me so far, I have a strong desire to continue, but I also want to write a new story when I think of one. …… It would be best if I could write both, but I can’t find the time to do so.

If you would like to comment on this story or any of my other works, or review them if you haven’t done so yet, please do so.

(TL/N : This marks the end of the first chapter, what do you think about it ? Personally I like it a lot, somehow I felt that a shuraba is coming… BTW don’t forget to also give the author a support so that he will continue this series, see you on the next one !)
