It was the fourth day of the school trip.
I was at Animate in Kyoto.
“Oh, there’s a Danpuri corner. Let’s go !”
And next to me was Hazuki san with a fluffy smile on her face.
Well, she’s too cute……
“By the way, Yamada kun, he said he can’t come…..”
“Oh, that’s right.”
Originally, the three of us were supposed to have a free day on the last day, including Yamada kun, but he decided to go to the [Sound ! Sax Solistar], and we decided to go our separate ways in a hurry.
In other words, it would be just me and Hazuki san going around for a few hours from now.
I-I’m getting kind of nervous…….
“L-look. Let’s go, Ryoga kun…….”
I noticed that Hazuki san’s left hand and my right hand are connected.
M-my heart beats strangely.
Hazuki san and I moved to the Danpuri corner.
“Wow〜, that’s Rei kun from Danpuri !”
The man on the monitor that Hazuki san is pointing at is Kiritani Rei, a tall, dark-haired, good-looking man.
[Hey, don’t talk to me so casually.]
[Rei kun …..]
What is being played is a scene where Rei is just wall-slamming the heroine.
It’s a complicated feeling to hear my own voice like this.
I mean, this actually looks like something I’ve done somewhere…….
No, it’s just my imagination.
“Kya~! Ryoga sama is so cool.”
“I want to be wall-slammed by Rei kun too…..”
“I know, right〜 I want to see Ryoga sama live.”
“True ! I want him to show his face.”
I looked around and saw that a lot of women were gathering.
T-this is not good.
“Hazuki san, let’s go.”
“Eh? Oh, yeah.”
“Okay. I’m tired〜”
After leaving the store in a hurry, Hazuki san and I sat down on a bench nearby to take a breather.
I mean, it’s a little late for that, but–
“Hazuki san, your hand…..”
I’ve been holding hands with Hazuki san since a while ago.
Moreover, Hazuki san’s face turned red and she looked quite embarrassed.
Why did this happened…..
“I-I’ll let go.”
Saying that, I tried to let go of my hand, but Hazuki san gripped it tightly and wouldn’t let go.
“…..Y-you’re also holding hands with Nanahoshi san, right?”
“T-then….it’s fine with me too, right?”
W-what is she saying?
And she’s blushing more than before…….
“No, that was an act. This is indeed a bad idea…….”
Hazuki san silently protests saying so.
No, but as expected, my heart can’t take much more of this…..
“Sigh. All right.”
After tens of seconds of staring at each other, the hands that were holding each other separated.
“I’m going to go to the restroom. Can you wait here for a moment?”
Hazuki san leaves her luggage on the bench and left.
Now, where should we have lunch—
My phone rings. Who is it?
[Ah, hello Ryoga. Do you have a minute?]
The caller was Elena.
[You’re in Kyoto right now, right? I need you to buy me some souvenirs.]
“O-okay. What do you want?”
[Oil blotting paper from a place called [Sakuraya]. My friend recommended it to me.]
“Roger that. How many sheets should I–“
I was about to say that when I heard Hazuki san’s voice coming from the side.
“Ryoga kun, sorry to keep you waiting.”
“Y-yeah. Ah, sorry Elena. So, how many should I–“
[……Who’s that woman?]
Elena’s voice suddenly lowers ・・・・.
[Hey, I’m asking you. ……Who is it?]
Bang ! !
W-what’s that sound of something breaking……
I mean, why is she so mad……
“N-no. We’re just classmates.”
[Hmm? So it’s just a classmate…but she called you by first name? Hmm…….]
Elena’s mood is getting worse and worse.
Damn…..this is really bad.
“N-no. It’s not like that. It just happens to be–“
“Ryoga kun, what are we going to do for lunch?. Oh, there’s a couple plans ・・・・. Here it is–“
Suddenly, Hazuki san points at her smartphone from the side and says so.
W-what is this timing……
[R-Ryoga ! W-what was that just now ! !]
“S-sorry, Elena. I have some business to attend to.”
[Huh !? Wait a minute, Ryoga–]
I unintentionally hung up the call.
Ping ping ping ping
T-this is bad, really bad.
My phone is ringing continuously with notifications.
“Geez, what’s wrong, Ryoga kun? Let’s decide where to go for lunch.”
Kuh, what should I do?
“Come on, the stores will start to get crowded if we don’t hurry up.”
Hazuki san rushed me like that.
Ah, I can’t think straight…….
“Hey, Ryoga kun !”
I-I’ve done it……
I turn off my phone and put it in my bag.
Anyway, I took a deep breath.
Okay, I’m starting to calm down.
Well, I can call Elena back later and she’ll be fine…..probably.
I turn to Hazuki san.
“Umm, it’s noon, right?”
“Ah, yeah. But I don’t think you need to worry so much. Let’s decide slowly while looking around ! ”
Hm? I think Hazuki san is saying something different from what she said earlier.
And just like that, Hazuki san and I left the bench.
[Thank you for taking the Shinkansen again today. This is the “Nozomi” train bound for Tokyo. Stops on the way are–]
Looking at the time on the clock through the window of the Shinkansen, the time is 4:00 pm.
It’s already this late…….
“Good work, Nekura kun. How was it? How was your free time today?”
“Yeah, it was fun.”
After that, Hazuki san and I went to an anime store in Kyoto and enjoyed the city without any problems.
I was quite nervous at first being alone with Hazuki san, but it was fun like normal……
Then, perhaps from the fatigue up until now, drowsiness suddenly hits me.
“Hm, you look sleepy, are you okay?”
“No, I’ll probably go to sleep.”
“Okay, good night, Nekura kun.”
“Good night, Yamada kun.”
Ryoga closes his eyes.
Thus, Ryoga’s 4-day/3-night school trip came to an end.
–By the way, after this, Ryoga notices a lot of calls and line messages from Elena, which is another story.
