One day toward the end of the summer vacation.

I was waiting for my meeting partner under the big clock in front of the station, where I could see a shopping mall.

It was just before eleven in the morning.

Today I came to this shopping mall because Juri senpai asked me to go shopping with her…..maybe she contacted me to help me “recover my memory together” as Futaba senpai told me the other day.

I’m sure there’s no other reason for them to call me.

After waiting for a while, I saw Juri senpai coming from the ticket gate a little earlier than the meeting time.

Juri senpai noticed me standing there under the clock and ran up to me, waving her hand lightly.

“Sorry, did I make you wait……?”

“No, I haven’t been waiting at all. It’s still a lot earlier than the meeting time.”

The meeting was supposed to be at 11:00 a.m. in front of the station, but there is still ten minutes to spare until then.

Juri senpai smiled wryly while checking the clock on her smartphone.

“I thought I came early too, but how long ago did you get here?”

“I really just got here. More importantly……”

Suddenly, when I glanced over Juri senpai’s whole body, I noticed that the atmosphere was different from usual.

Juri senpai wore a girly blouse with girlish frills, a ribbon on her chest, and a pleated skirt above the knee, and her hair was arranged with hairpins.

I was a little surprised because the last time we went to the pool together, she was dressed more boyishly and I usually have a cool image of how she dresses in school uniform.

Senpai noticed that I was staring at her whole body, and she seemed uncomfortable.

Then, he looked up at me with a frightened look.

“I-I knew it didn’t look good on me…….”

“Eh, I don’t think so. It looks great on you !”


“Yes. You usually look cool, but today you look cute.”

“….! I-I see…….”

Juri senpai abruptly averted her face and turned her gaze to a large building towering nearby.

Then she walked out to lead the way.

“L-let’s go then……”

“Yes, let’s go.”

I also followed Juri senpai and headed towards the entrance of the shopping mall.

◆ ◆ ◆

I went through the entrance of the mall and looked around as I rode the escalator to the second floor.

It seemed that the second floor was lined with apparel stores, and many young men and women could be seen.

I had only been asked to accompany her shopping today, but I finally got the idea.

“Senpai, did you come here today to shop for clothes?”

“Yeah, I’m sorry, but I’m going to ask you to accompany me.”

“That’s totally fine, but are you sure you’re okay with me? I don’t think I know much about fashion or anything like that…….”

“It has to be you today.”


In other words, does it have something to do with the memories I forgot?

Juri senpai just brought me to this shop, which I would call feminine…it was a shop that had clothes and accessories that had both the elegance of a young lady and the cuteness of a girl.

Of course, there are many young female customers in the store, and there is an atmosphere that makes it difficult for men to enter.

As I hesitated to enter the store, Juri senpai pulled me by the arm.

“Come on, let’s go.”


When I entered the store, Juri senpai was picking out clothes while humming in a good mood…..I might have acted a little suspiciously looking around like a pervert.

I was overwhelmed by the atmosphere of the store, which was filled with such fancy colors and the sweet scent of perfume.

Suddenly, Juri senpai showed me a piece of clothing she had picked up.

“Hey, Asahi, don’t you think this outfit is cute?”

“I-I guess so. I think it suits Juri senpai well.”


When I said my honest impression, Juri senpai blushed slightly and looked down.

Normally she would glare at me, but today I felt something different than usual.

“But this looks more like Futaba than me.”

“That’s true, if you ask me, it looks like something Futaba senpai would wear.”

“Futaba has a good sense of style. She always wears something cute.”

As Juri senpai said, I get the feeling that Futaba senpai often wears cute girly clothes.

“Come to think of it, I think Juri senpai always looks boyish.”

“Yeah, well……”

“I’m not sure why, but it’s rare to see you dressed in something as cute as you are today.”

“These kinds of cute clothes don’t suit me. But Asahi told me that it’s cute…..from now on, I think I’ll have more confidence in what I like.”

Suddenly, Juri senpai looks up at me with a soft smile.

“……I feel like we’ve had this kind of exchange before.”

I think this happened at the pool,……or even earlier.

When was it?

It’s a fluffy memory, as if it had happened in a dream.

As I twisted my head, I suddenly noticed that Juri senpai was staring blankly at my face.

“Senpai? Is something wrong…..?”

“No, nothing. …..M-more importantly, can I go try on a few things?”

“Yes. You don’t have to worry about me at all.”

“……Of course I’d be worried.”

I think I heard something vaguely, but before I could ask back, Juri senpai repaired several clothes and quickly walked towards the fitting room.
