“Why are you here, Sera?”

I asked with a genuine question.

Mai also seemed puzzled by the sudden visit of a stranger to the house.

“Who is this person, senpai? she just came out of the blue.”

I couldn’t understand what was going on either, so I kept quiet, and Sera opened her mouth.

“Shoma, I’d like to talk to you. I tried to contact you several times since yesterday and even called you in the morning, but you didn’t respond.”

She then shows me the screen of her phone.

I can see that she has sent a number of messages to me.

“Okay. Come in.”

I reluctantly let Sera into the house, wondering if I should turn her away.

We went into the room and sat down with Mai next to me and Sera across from me.

“So, who is this?”

Mai asked me, looking at Sera with menacing eyes.

I have nothing to hide, so I answer honestly.

“This is my ex-girlfriend, Matsuura Sera.”

“ex-girlfriend!? Since when did you break up with her, senpai?”

“Yeah, just a few days ago. Daiki should know about it.”

Hearing those words, Mai grumbled, “That stupid brother.”

In the meantime, I introduced Mai to Sera.

“This is Toda Mai. You know Toda Daiki, who is in the same class with me, right? She’s his sister and a freshman at the same high school.”

“Hee~. I see.”

“So, what did you want to talk about?”

When I asked that, Sera remained silent and looked at Mai.

“Is it difficult to talk about it when Mai is around?”

“…… yesterday morning.”

I knew everything by those words.

“Mai, could you give me some time off? I’ll make it up to you someday.”

There was a moment of hesitation in my proposal,

“I understood. I’m sure senpai have circumstances of some sort. Then, I’m going home.”

She accepted it easily and left my house.

After confirming this, Sera began to speak fluently.

“First of all, what kind of relationship do you have with that girl?”

“I don’t need to tell you.”

“No, it is necessary.”

“Why?”

“Shoma was with Sakahara Hinano yesterday morning, wasn’t he? And you seemed to be getting along well.”

“Yes, we are.”

“I happened to be there, too, and was curious so I followed you.”

“So you followed”

“That’s fine, same as you were that day.”

I couldn’t even breathe a word when she said that.

“Then, together with her, you went back home to Shoma’s apartment. It’s the same thing as with me. Yesterday, I went home right after that. But, I did not understand why Sakahara Hinano was with you. It bothered me. I couldn’t sleep at night without asking. So I went to the place where you two were together and to aske, and I found a woman I didn’t know. If you’re in love with one of them, what you’re doing is exactly the same thing.”

“I see.”

The most troublesome part was seen by someone who shouldn’t have been seen.

Sera thinks that Hinano came to my house that day.

She doesn’t think that we are next to each other.

I don’t want to be misunderstood either. Let me give you a simple answer. I don’t have a relationship with either of them. I have nothing to do with either Hinano or Mai. I can confirm that. I didn’t do anything like you did.”

When I answered that, Sera answered simply, “I see.

“Is that all you have to say?”

“One more thing.”

Sera leaned forward a little and asked me.

“Shoma, why did you follow me that day? You had spent all that the trusting me, not doubting me at all. I was sure I did what I always do that day. Did anything trigger you?”

“・・・・・・ No, it’s just a hunch I have. For some reason, I felt uncomfortable. That’s why I followed you.”

I was a little nervous at the question, but I answered quickly so as not to arouse suspicion.

“Really? I remember the day before that day, Shoma bought new glasses. Did those glasses help you see anything?”

Sera laughs a little when she hears this, and then she starts to doubt me.

This girl has zero score to me, and yet she sees a lot.

The number on Sera’s forehead says 0, as it always has.

Is this what a woman’s intuition is?

“N-No, it can’t be. It’s just a pair of glasses. You want to try them on?”

I took the gamble of a lifetime.

If she said she would wear them, I would be doomed, but this was the only way I could think of to clear my suspicions.

I waited for Sera’s answer with nervous anticipation.

It felt like an eternity.

“—– No, thanks, I’ll pass. I was only joking.

“I-I see.”

“I’ve got someone waiting for me. I know what I want to know.”

Thank God.

Sera got up to leave and was about to leave the room.

At that moment, she suddenly turned around and said, “Ah”

I was trying to see Sera off, so I was following behind her and we were closer than I thought we would be.

I was unexpectedly close to her.

Sera was startled and almost fell down with her feet tangling together.

I reacted quickly and put my arm around Sera and managed to support her.

Taking a breath, I noticed that the distance between my face and Sera’s was only about the size of my fist.

Sera’s face, which I fell in love with at first sight, is right in front of me.

This is a distance I never experienced when I was her girlfriend.

The sight of her face almost stops me from thinking, but I manage to keep my ego in check.

“D-Don’t suddenly turn around. It’s dangerous. ”

“…..I-I’m sorry. I forgot my phone. I’m …… fine now, so let go of me.”

“Yeah, I’m sorry.”

With that said, Sera moves away from me, picks up the smartphone that was on the desk, and walks towards the entrance a little faster.

Then, when Sera put her hand on the door handle, she turned to me.

“Thanks for earlier.”

“Yeah”

“Ah, and I broke up with that guy.”

“Eh?”

“Bye.”

She waved her hand and walked out, looking very cute, as if she was the person I fell in love with at first sight.

And the number written on her forehead was

1

The last 2 lines are obviously 0s, but she had her chance and blew it. I sincerely hope he doesn’t take her back. If he wants to forgive her, fine, whatever. She already violated his trust, so taking her back now would mean he has 0 sense of self worth. And if he does, I’m just gonna drop this. Just once, I’d like to see a Japanase mc who actually has some dignity.

Unfortunately, this guy seem to fall under the generic category of the JP mc archetypes. Hopefully he does develop into something better, than staying the same like the rest.
