Monday, the first day of the week.
I go to school, whipping my legs as they get heavier.
“Hikari chan, aren’t you too close to your brother?”
Maki says admonishingly to Hikari who is linking arms with me.
“Is that a loser’s howl? Onii chan’s ex-girlfriend, Maki san?”
This time, Hikari fired back at Maki in an agitated manner.
At the previous dinner party, they seemed to get along well…I want to lament this, but the reason for this is obvious. Both of them like me and see each other as enemies.
When Maki visited my home for the first time in a long while and when we started going to school together, I knew something was going on, but it turned out like this…….
It seems that Hikari goes to school with us part way to make sure we don’t get too comfortable, and returns home when the time is right. If she was going to cause such trouble, I would probably think she should go to school, but she was being bullied, so I couldn’t say anything like that, even if my mouth was torn.
Besides, Hikari tends to stay at home these days, so if she goes outside for any reason, I won’t complain. The only thing I worry about is that when I turn back, she will be alone.
This circumstances is the reason why this situation was established, but in a situation like this, if you are a romantic comedy harem hero, the right thing to do would be to go to school without stopping the girls who are bickering with each other, even though he says things like, [The jealous stares of the people around me are hurting me…….] I guess the correct answer is to go to school as it is.
But I don’t have the hobby of showing off to the outside world like other people do, and there is nothing better than not having jealous stares directed at me. I should be prepared for this to some extent when I go to school with them.
Anyway, this situation is conspicuous and I seriously hope it will stop.
“Hey……if you two fight any more, I’ll go to school alone.”
I said to them as if to push them away.
Immediately, their faces darkened and shriveled up like a scaredy cat.
[ [I’m sorry…….] ]
Maybe I said it a little too harsh…….
“Ah….don’t get so gloomy. Well, but I think it’s much more efficient to make an effort to get the person you like to look back at you than to put down someone who likes the same person as you do,……which is a strange thing for me to say.”
“You’re right,……I was wrong,……I’m sorry,……Hikari chan.”
“I’m sorry too…….”
In the end, after that, I never got to talk with the two of them, who were extremely remorseful or had extremely few words to say.
Oh well, it’s better than fighting, right?
“Kento ! Let’s eat together?”
I had anticipated this, but as expected, Maki invites me to lunch.
The puzzled stares of my classmates pierce me.
This reaction is only natural, given that I had previously declared that we had broken up.
…This might be misunderstood as a reconciliation.
Maybe that’s what Maki is aiming for.
Now that the misunderstanding is cleared up, I don’t hate her as much as I did before, so there’s nothing to be concerned about, as long as we eat lunch.
For her, this may be an approach, but for me it’s a step toward becoming a good friend.
“Ta-da ! I made lunch for Kento !”
“But I already made mine…..”
“You’re a boy, so why don’t you eat both !”
However, if she made it with me in mind, there’s no way I wouldn’t eat it.
“……Just let me know next time.”
“…..Did you unblock me?”
“We made up yesterday, right?”
The moment I told her, Maki’s eyes widened, and now she let tears well up in the corners of her eyes…
She began to cry.
“Why are you crying?”
I was surprised at the suddenness of the situation, but I stroked Maki’s head saying so.
I did it yesterday, but it’s like a habit I got into before we started dating.
Ever since I was little, whenever Maki was feeling down due to something difficult or sad, I would almost always pat her on the head and comfort her.
……Even though my relationship with her has changed, this part of my life continues to be the same.
It’s difficult for me to do this on my own, but I felt like I saw the bond I had with her there.
While I was immersed in such emotion, Maki was groaning as if to push the tears away.
“……Stop crying already.”
“……I can’t,……I can’t,……When Kento ignored me,……I thought I’d never be able to talk to him again. I was so anxious……and worried….that I would never be able to talk to him again…..so it was hard for me…..”
So she was so relieved that I unblocked her and the relationship was restored that she couldn’t help but cry.
Crying in a classroom is something she wouldn’t have done a while ago.
……Maki really has changed, hasn’t she?
In the end, because I kept patting her head until she stopped crying, I couldn’t finish my lunch during the lunch break.
“They’re definitely getting back together…….”
Someone’s monologue disappeared into the void without a single objection.
