When I returned to the burger joint, they greeted me with smiles.
“I’m sorry I’m late.”
We both bowed our heads, but neither Misaka san nor Misaki sensei seemed to be bothered by it.
“Don’t worry about it. I also took up extra time with Takuma, and you had a lot going on over there, right?”
[I’m curious as to why you were late, but judging from the atmosphere between the two of you, I think you were probably having an important conversation. …They’re brother and sister, so there’s a lot going on.]
“Right. It’s because you’re siblings after all, right?”
[It’s definitely not an after-the-fact atmosphere. Saki chan seems to have quite strong feelings, and she may have gotten a little out of control.]
“Well, I’m sure Fujisaki kun is tired, too, right? You should take a little break. Come here.”
At Misaki sensei’s urging, I sit down next to Misaki sensei and let out a sigh of relief.
At the table for four, Saki is in front of me and Misaka san is next to her. Saki looks really dissatisfied, and I can see a suspicious glint in her eyes, but it seems that Misaki sensei has no intention of giving up her seat next to me.
And then, Misaki sensei says.
“Well, now we’ve come full circle. After we relax a little, we’ll go outside for a walk. I have someplace I want to go.”
The appeal time is over, and I wonder if the three of them are finally going to confess their feelings to me……
I’m not sure what to say to each of them, and even now it’s not clear. I wonder what my feelings are. All of them are attractive, and it’s too difficult to choose just one.
[I’m sure Onii chan will choose me. I love him the most and he loves me too. I know Onii chan well, and I love him, including all of his flaws and the fact that he is sometimes not kind. Even though we have our ties as siblings, I’m sure he understands that he would be happier with me.]
[Well, I wonder if Fujisaki kun has already decided on his answer. It’s hard to say this myself, but I think I did a good job of keeping it straight. I’m in the position of a teacher, and there’s a slight age difference, but other than that, I’m the best person to date, right?]
[Of the three of us, I think I’m the most normal…… I think our time together was also the most low-key……. I don’t have anything outstandingly distinctive about me……. If I had to say, I would say that my advantage is that I can interact with Fujisaki kun from a fairly close perspective……
Isn’t that really attractive? I feel like I’m in a daze in front of these two… Also, the thing with Takuma seems like an unnecessary complication. I’m sure he’d like to have fun without any trouble, but I guess that’s not possible for me… It’s frustrating…]
Various thoughts are mixed up and naturally their gazes are on me. This is also awkward….. I’m not at ease. Let’s get a little distracted here. What would be good to talk about……?
“……Um, I’d like to ask you a few questions. Especially about Misaki sensei.”
I start, and Misaki sensei nods her head.
“Fine. What do you want to talk about?”
“Erm……there are a lot of things that don’t go well for married couples in the world. Why do you think that is?”
I wondered if there was a future where I would date one of these three people and then one day live with them as husband and wife. When I was thinking about that, I suddenly became curious. Well, since I can’t marry Saki, I guess what I assume is a de facto marriage situation.
I wanted to distract their attention from me a little, but was this the right topic……?
“Oh, that’s quite a difficult question to ask. I’ve never been married, so this is just my personal guess, okay?”
“Yes. Of course.”
[It’s a very sudden question. I guess you must have a lot of things to think about when you are approached by three people like this. You’re still at an innocent age, and I’m sure you’re thinking about marriage as it is with the person you’re going out with. If you go out with me, that’s fine, but what if it’s with the other two? Anyway, I guess this is where I have to answer in my own serious way.]
[You’re talking about married couples…….. Marriage is something that me and Onii chan can’t do……. If you’re talking like that, are you not thinking of dating me? No, that’s not true. It’s okay for me and Onii chan to be a common-law couple.
What you want to ask is why two people who love each other enough to become husband and wife don’t get along. Like the gap between lovers and married couples? If that’s the case, we who have been together for a long time have nothing to worry about anymore. There won’t be any misunderstandings now.]
[Fujisaki-kun, are you thinking about marriage before making a choice…? I feel like you’re being a bit hasty, but I’m glad you’re so serious about it. Misaki sensei, how will you answer?]
