What does she mean by that?

I was frozen, not knowing what was going on.

“You still don’t get it, do you? I don’t like you, in fact, I hate you. When I heard you were going to tell me today, I set you up.”

What do you mean you hate me? And how did you know I was going to tell you today?

“……,So you know I was going to tell you today.”

“Eh? You don’t know that?”

Wrong. I don’t want to think about it. That can’t be true.

“You can come out~ You two.”

When Eri said that, Kaisei and Ruri came out from behind her.

I wonder how long they have been there.

“Yo ! Yuuki. How are you doing? How does it feel to be set up by us, your childhood friends !”

“I never thought a creepy guy like you was my childhood friend.”

“Jeez, Kaisei and Ruri are both so quick to say that.”

…..I see. I have been deceived. To those who I thought were my childhood friends.

When I realized that, something that I had been trying not to think about until now came to my mind. 

After Ruri came and Kaisei brightened up, I almost never played with Eri alone anymore.

Not only that, but I no longer played with the three of us.

Looking back, I think I may have been the only one who was left out. When I called them, I thought I heard their voices behind me.

“You’ve been thinking like that all along?”

“Yup, a guy like you are so plain compared to the rest of us, and you were just in the way.”

Said Kaisei.

I wanted to play with Eri alone, but you were always in the way.

“I wanted to hang out with Eri alone, but you were always in my way.”

Said Ruri.

“I was really annoyed with you because you always came along with me, showing your affection for me. It was so annoying that I regretted why we were childhood friends !”

Said Eri.

“No one thinks of you as a childhood friend or even a friend. That’s why I set you up like this !”

I finally understood. They don’t need me. In that case…….

“……, I get it. I’ll stay out of your way.”

“You finally get it, huh? I’ve been trying to…….”

“But I don’t have to do it for you guys, right?”

“Don’t interrupt me !”

Kaisei pushed me away when he said that.

But I didn’t care and kept talking.

“It’s fine if I don’t give you guys the lunch I made, right?”

I don’t even want to eat what you made! I don’t want to eat what you made!

“I don’t even want to eat it ! That’s what I’m hoping for.”

“…..I see.then I won’t say anything anymore. “

This will lighten my burden. I don’t have to make a lunch box for each of them.

There’s also a healthy bento to make for Kagurazaka san, who basically overeats.

I also made a bento for Otori kun, who’s the ace of the club and is suitable for exercising.

Or lunch boxes for Kamisaka san, whose skin tends to get rough.

Less tedious work. This is one of the reasons I’m always late.

“See you later.”

When I was about to leave, 

“Wait, I’ve been holding back until now and I’m stressed. You don’t mind if I let it out on you, right?”

Saying that, Otori kun kicked me and stomped on my face. Kagurazaka san and Kamisaka san took advantage of this and kicked me in the stomach.

They never punched me. I guess they didn’t even want to touch me.

After about 10 minutes of being kicked, they must have been satisfied, because they stopped kicking me and said, 

“Don’t ever talk to me again !”

“I don’t even want to see your face !”

“Bye, you disgusting asshole !”

They left after uttering a few words of disgust.

I guess that’s what she meant, since Kagurazaka san and Kamisaka-san were walking with Otoru kun. Those two were amazing.

I got up and sat back down on the bench, thinking about that in my hazy head.

Strangely, I wasn’t sad. It was as if I had lost something important.

I no longer had any feelings for the three of them, so I left the park that full of memories and headed home.


??? side

Is that Yuuki kun over there? and Kagurazaka san? I wonder what they’re doing.

I wasn’t in the mood to go out, so I looked out through the window, and suddenly someone came out. I don’t know much about the people at the school, so I don’t know what they are doing.

??? was watching what happened as it was. And was too scared to go help.

I can’t forgive them. They did that to Yuuki kun……

I’m sure he’s hurt. Is there anything I can do?

With that thought, ??? closed the curtains.

…Isn’t it supposed to be “Childhood Friends”, plural, in the title? Since he was betrayed by all three of them.

Well, I’m glad that the MC isn’t too hung up over it. I dunno why, but I’ve always liked characters who can take betrayal in stride and, rather than wallow in self-pity, either think of revenge or just move on.
