Today was the first time in a while that I had student council business.

“Excuse me.”

The only one inside was Yuri san. The other student council members didn’t seem to have arrived yet.

“Thanks for your hard work, Kento kun.”

“Yeah.”

“Do you have a minute?

Hm? What’s up with the sudden change?

“Ah, yes.”

“Um……hey? It’s about Maria.”

I knew it was related to the president.

“I’m wondering if you could be a little nicer to her……”

She asked fearfully.

Well, since she knows what the president did to me, she probably knows that it can’t be helped that this request makes me angry.

Well, it’s not something I should get angry about.

I calmly decline.

“I don’t want to. I understand that the president has become nicer to me recently, but I can’t think I’ll forgive her just because of that. First of all, she hasn’t even apologized to me yet…….”

“Eh?”

“Hm?

“Huh?

“Oh?”

What the hell with this situation.

“Is it true that…she hasn’t apologized?”

“Yeah. In the first place, there is no way she would apologize for her pride.”

“That girl…..”

She has a grim expression, as if she has bitten a bitter insect, but I wonder why.

“Sorry ! I’m going home today ! Ah, Maria can’t come to the student council today either due to class !”

Saying that, she dashed off.

……What the hell was that?

==================================

“Maria !”

I shouted out of character when I found her back on my way home.

‘Whoa ! Yuri !? What about the student council?”

“We decided not to do this today because of you !”

I was aware that my tone was a little rough, perhaps because of my irritation and dismay toward her.

“Eh?”

“Maria, you still haven’t apologized to Kento kun?”

“Eek.”

She was startled.

This is not the time to be making silly comments.

“Maria chan. You really like Kento kun, don’t you?”

“Yeah…….”

“Then why didn’t you apologize?”

“……”

“I’ll never know if you don’t say anything.”

“……”

“Did your pride get in the way again?”

Maria shook her head silently.

“Then why?”

“……I was scared.”

“…..Actually, I knew I had to apologize, but I started thinking about what would happen if my apology was ignored……if that happened, I don’t think I could take it anymore…….”

“Maria chan……”

It wasn’t out of pride, but out of fear.

That’s true. It’s scary.

It must be painful even now that you’re being rejected by the boy you love, but there’s no way you won’t feel fear.

But. But still.

“Maria chan. You still have to apologize. I hope you can express your affection then, too.”

“I knew I couldn’t run away anymore. I will apologize. But…..affection…..”

“I heard that his ex-girlfriend, who was out of school for a while, has been coming to school recently. She’s in the same class as him, so it’s possible they’ll get back together.”

“”I don’t like that!!”

“Well, I think it would be a good idea to tell him how much you like him before she does, don’t you?”

“Uh……uh……”

Maria chan’s face is as red as an apple and she looks down.

She’s so cute that I can’t help but think that if Kento kun could see this expression on her face, it would be better.

“Okay……I’m going to….confess…..”

“Really? Good luck !”

“But I won’t ask him to go out with me. Probably because it’s not possible right now. So I’ll just tell him I like him and make him aware of it.”

“I think that’s a good idea !”

I never thought that prideful Maria chan would come to the point of deciding to confess her feelings.

I was deeply moved.

So is she planning on confessing before apologizing? Or just hoping that the confession can skip the whole need to apologize thing?
