“Chifuyu, I’m glad to hear from you, but I think you should hold off a little.”

I said this to Chifuyu as we walked home together after school.

After thinking about it a lot.

I would be happy if she could contact me but.

I added that I wouldn’t want the teacher to find out, and to some extent, I wouldn’t even listen to class.

“you don’t like….., huh?”

“I don’t hate it. But you see, you know what I mean.”

“Yeah,…… I’m a burden on you, Toma kun, aren’t I? I’m sorry, I’ll put up with it, so don’t hate me.”

With a face of heartfelt despair.

She clung to me as if begging for her life.

The meaning of being warned by me is completely different for Chifuyu than for being scolded by Madoka san.

“I-It’s okay, it’s okay. I will never hate you. So, don’t cry.”

“Yeah…… yeah, I’m sorry.”

It took a long time to comfort Chifuyu after this, and after she calmed down after about an hour of crying on the street, we decided to take a side trip together to apologize for making her cry.

We decided to buy taiyaki at a food stall in front of the station.

“Chifuyu, you like sweets, don’t you?”

“Yes, I love them. After Toma kun and Madoka”

“But I can only buy you cheap things now, but I want to work and earn money so that I can treat Chifuyu to more delicious food and buy her nice things. That’s why I’m working.”

“Yeah,…… I know you’re working hard for me, Toma-kun. I’m sorry, I’m being selfish.”

We talked about such things while waiting in line at the taiyaki shop.

Chifuyu is also gradually understanding more and more.

I want to support her.

I want to support her and face her, because that is what I can do now.

Soon after, I buy two taiyakis.

It’s my treat.

The price isn’t that much, but I still feel like I want to do anything for the girl I love.

I want to do more for her.

I have to work harder.

“Look, it’s hot. Chifuyu, let’s eat there before it gets cold.”


Chifuyu and I stood in a line on a bench by the restaurant and ate the taiyaki.

The taiyaki is so hot that I hesitate to even hold it, but Chifuyu just takes a bite of it with a nonchalant look on her face.

“Is it hot?”

“Yes, it’s fine. If it’s what Toma-kun bought me, I can eat it even if it’s poisoned.”

“But you mustn’t overdo it. Look, your lips are red.”

“Can you cool them down for me ……?”


Her lips with red bean paste were sweet and warm.

When I kissed her, her body stopped shaking.

“…… are you all right now?”

“Yes. Toma kun’s mouth is sweet.”

“It’s because of Anko. Chifuyu’s was sweet too.”

“Was it good?”

“Yes. Chifuyu is delicious.”

“Hehehe. I want you to taste more, Toma kun.”

“Me too. I want to taste more of Chifuyu.”

Forget about taiyaki.

Forget about the stares of the people around me.

Forget about the darkness.

On the bench, we put our lips together.

The time with her always passes quickly.

When today is over, I’ll be back at school.

I have a part-time job, so there will come a time when I have to leave her.

I wonder why I can’t be with the person I love all the time.

I was thinking the same thing as Chifuyu.

Soon it became dark.

The taiyaki had already cooled down.

“Bye, Chifuyu.”

“Yeah, see you later.”

The next day at school.

Chifuyu told me that she didn’t need me to walk her to class today.

She said that this is also an exercise in patience.

I respect Chifuyu’s wish and see her off at the shoe box today.

She works hard every day.

That’s why I have to work hard too.

She makes me feel that way, and her existence is truly irreplaceable for me.

……I remember it’s almost her birthday.

I wonder what kind of things does she want

“Osuu, Chifuyu. What’s wrong with being alone today?”

“Toma-kun, I tried not to bother him.”

“Oh, great. What kind of change of heart?”

“…… I know that Toma-kun is only looking out for me.”

“I see. Then, do you no longer need me during today’s workday?”

“Yes, I do. Madoka, I won’t let you leave after school.”


I’m getting used to the time when Toma kun is away for a little while.

I still get nervous and have trouble breathing when thoughts of him cross my mind.

It’s not so much that I can’t stand it.

I think it’s partly thanks to Madoka.

Even though I’m spending my morning classroom time without Toma-kun in this way, I’m still …….

“Hey Kayamori, you said you don’t like guys, didn’t you?”

A slightly vulgar voice echoes in the quiet morning classroom.

He calls out my name with ease.

“Hey Kikuchi, don’t interrupt me when Chifuyu and I are talking right now.”

“Shut up, Madoka. Hey, Kayamori, did you lie about what you said to me?”


“W-Who…. You should at least remember the names of your classmates. Kikuchi, the guy who asked you out last month?”

“I don’t know …….”

Strangers destroy my peaceful time.

He has a weird look on his face.

“Don’t know, huh? Don’t get carried away just because you’re kinda cute.”

“Kikuchi, just stop it. She’s got a boyfriend right now.”

“That’s what I don’t like about you. I don’t like that she pretends not to be interested in men, but she has a boyfriend!”


“Besides, you wouldn’t want to let your boyfriend do his best anyway, right? good job catching younger boys.”

“A younger boy. …… You mean Toma kun?”


My peaceful heart is now a mess.

Someone who didn’t know anything about Toma kun said bad things about him.

He called Toma-kun, who is so wonderful, a younger boy (Brat).

“W-What …… you want to do it?” (Talking about fight)

“Unforgiveable….. die.”

“E……, Agh…..”

“Die you…person like you should die”

I didn’t want to touch him, but for some reason I grabbed the man in front of me by the neck with both hands.

Seriously, I wanted him to die.

I’m going to break his neck and make sure he can’t say anything bad about him again.

“Stop it, Chifuyu! Stop it!”

I didn’t really remember what happened after that.

Madoka was pulling me desperately away from him, and a boy suffering in front of me was looking at me like I was a monster.

Everyone in the class was also looking at me like I was some kind of crazy girl.

Eventually, the teacher heard the commotion and came over.

I was taken to the teacher’s office.
