–Chinese style fried rice with chicken.

As the name implies, it is stir-fried with chinese style sauce.

I have been making and eating this dish since I found the recipe on a video the other day.

I put a spoon into a round bowl of fried rice and scoop it up.

The rice was well loosened by the sauce before stir-frying, so it fell apart on the spoon.

As I lifted the spoon to my mouth, the sour taste of vinegar escaped my nose, followed immediately by the sweet taste of green onion. The aroma of sesame oil is infinitely appetizing, and the egg-coated, parapara rice is habit-forming.

The guilt of eating at this time of the day was the perfect spice, and I couldn’t stop moving my spoon.

Suddenly, Nagisa senpai, who sat in the chair across from me, also took a bite and let out a breath of admiration.

“I-it’s delicious……!”

“I’m glad it suits your palate.”

Nagisa senpai really enjoyed eating the fried rice.

“Asahi san is really good at cooking. The curry you just made was also very tasty.”

“Well, I’m good at it because my parents were often away from home, so I used to cook instead. It might be a little surprising.”

It might be surprising…….I said, because I thought it was normal to think that Hanabi, who can handle everything so skillfully, was the one doing the cooking.

I meant it in that way, but Nagisa senpai’s reaction was contrary to what I expected.

“No, I think it would be best if Asahi san cooks since Hanabi is so clumsy.”

“Eh, clumsy…..?’

Of course, I know that Hanabi has always been clumsy.

But the overwhelming talent and flowery beauty that makes you think it’s a trivial matter.

Sagami Hanabi was the person who made the audience think she was perfect.

That is the evaluation of the world without any favoritism.

That is why Nagisa senpai’s characterization of Hanabi as “clumsy” came as a surprise to me.

“I have known Hanabi for a long time. I know that she’s not an omniscient and omnipotent god like everyone thinks. And when it comes to you, Hanabi is……no, it’s nothing.”

“Eh, what is it? I’m super curious…….”

“It’s a secret.”

“I won’t be able to sleep later because I’m so worried about it.”

“Fufu, it means that Hanabi is also a normal girl.”

Nagisa senpai let out a natural smile.

I thought Nagisa senpai’s smiling face, which is usually expressionless, was really beautiful.

I was staring at her blankly, and Nagisa senpai covered her mouth with her hand as if she was a little embarrassed, and immediately returned to her usual expressionless face.

Somehow, I feel like it’s a waste, so I just couldn’t help but say something.

“Nagisa senpai, you should smile more.”


“Your usual dignified appearance is beautiful, but your smiling face is also wonderful.”

“W-what are you saying……!?”

“Ah, sorry. You wouldn’t be happy if I said this to you.”

“T-that’s not true…..”

Nagisa senpai looks down in trouble.

In a dimly lit room, it is impossible to see Senpai’s expression.

But I’m sure she’s troubled.

I said something strange again and made the atmosphere awkward.

This is why I’ll never be able to make a single friend no matter what……

I piled the empty plates on top of each other to cover up my bad feeling.

“L-let’s head back soo. It’s already late.”

“I guess so. Thank you for the food, it was very delicious.”

“Thank you very much.”

Seeing Nagisa senpai was about to take my plate to the kitchen along with her own, I hurriedly stood up.

“Ah, I’ll take care of it. You should brush your teeth, Senpai.”

“No, please let me do this since I’ve been treated to a meal.”

“No, that’s not how it works.”

“You don’t have to be so considerate……”

“No, no, no. You’re a guest.”

After a few more back-and-forths, we started to laugh at each other.

Then Senpai said in a gentle voice.

“Well then, let’s do it together.”

“Yes, let’s.”

We stood side by side in front of the kitchen sink, Nagisa senpai washing dishes and me wiping dishes.

Suddenly, Nagisa senpai standing next to me muttered.

“Earlier you were……….”

“Hm, earlier?”

“Um……me, I’ve always been bad at making facial expressions. That’s why I was so happy when Asahi san told me that my smiling face was wonderful.”

Suddenly, Nagisa senpai stopped washing the dishes and turned her gaze towards me.

“–That’s why, thank you very much.”

The smile was a little embarrassed and awkward.

But it was breathtakingly beautiful and I was captivated for a while.

“……sahi san, Asahi san?

“Y-yes !”

“Could you wipe the dishes for me?”

“Yes, I-I’m sorry…….”

After finishing wiping the last plate with a squeak, I brush my teeth in the bathroom.

And then, Nagisa senpai……yawn.

“We should head back to the bedroom.”

“Ah, please be careful in the hallway, it’s dark.”

“Yes. Then, good night.”

Saying that, it was right after Nagisa senpai left the hallway.


A small scream.

At the same time, there was a clattering sound.

“S-senpai, are you o–whoa !?”

I was so worried that I ran out of the corridor.

Because Nagisa senpai was falling closer than I thought, my legs got entangled and I fell too.

“Ouch–hii !?”

I fell down. I fell over Nagisa-senpai, and before I knew it, I was in a position where I pushed her down.

Senpai’s face was so close that I couldn’t help but stop my breathing.

“I-I’m sorry….!”

The moment I raised my body to retreat immediately.

Nagisa senpai puts her arms around my neck and pulls me.

Because of that, I lost my balance and ended up covering Nagisa senpai again.

Senpai’s slender yet soft body is close to me, and the scent of floral shampoo and the feel of cotton pajamas make my heart accelerate. My eyes, which had gradually become accustomed to the darkness, reflected the sight of Nagisa senpai, her cheeks slightly blushed and her eyes looking as if they were in a state of passion.

I was unable to move because her arms were wrapped around my back before I knew it.


“Asahi san’s smell……”



Come to think of it, Juri senpai told me that I stink before.

What, could it be that I just don’t know it myself and she’s smelling it?

While receiving damage to my heart, I feel even more bad.

“E-excuse me, do I stink……?”

“No. Asahi san’s smell, I like it…..”

“Eh, um…….”

I can feel Nagisa senpai taking a deep breath in my chest.

I feel the warm breath on my skin.

W-what the hell. What is this situation…..!?

“S-Senpai !? W-why are you……:

“Asahi san, I like……..ah.”

“Eh……Senpai, what did you just say……?”

I felt like I heard something outrageous, then I looked at Nagisa senpai’s face and she stared back at me with teary eyes.

“U-um,……i-it’s not like that…..”

“What is it……?”

Before long, Nagisa senpai turned her face away and muttered softly while covering her face with her arms.
