‘Kento ! Are you okay?”
Sari Nee chan asked me in a small voice so that others could not hear her.
The fact that her voice is so quiet is probably proof that she hasn’t told my mother or Hikari what’s going on. Surely, by the looks of things, she hasn’t called the police either.
I breathed a sigh of relief.
“I’m fine. We had a little talk after that, and things were resolved.”
“I’m glad……I feel relieved.”
Of course, there was no way I could have told them what we did together, and I had lied to her. I’m so guilty that my chest hurts.
For now, let’s take a quick bath.
I don’t think Maki will hug me in front of Sari Nee chan, but if she were to, she might find out that I was meeting with Maki because of the smell.
“I’m sorry for making you worry.”
“If something like that happens again in the future, you can talk to me about it, okay?”
“……..Hmm, is it morning already……..”
Yesterday, I didn’t want to see Hikari’s face, so I went to bed as if to escape.
“Hmm, I’ve received a notification…”
As if to shake off the sleepiness, I opened my sleepy eyes as hard as I could and checked the message.
“It’s from Emiko san….erm, she asked me to go shopping with her.”
Well, I don’t have any plans. I’ll go.
“What time and where?”
The moment I sent the message, it was read.
“1:00 in front of the burger joint near the train station ! And eat lunch!”
“It’s not like we’re on a date or anything ! You’re a baggage handler ! Don’t get me wrong !”
……So it is a date.
……The quick read, the tsundere remark, maybe Emiko san has a thing for me. What a thought.
As soon as I arrive in front of the station, I check the time on my cell phone.
It was 12:35.
I told Hikar, my mother, and Sari Nee chan that I was going to hang out with a friend, but I might have left a little early.
I walk to the hamburger store for now.
Suddenly, a voice called out to me from behind, and I turned around—
There she was, a super beautiful woman.
“………Hey, say something……”
“…….Sorry, I was just admiring you.”
I never expected that I would be able to say the worst lines of a romantic comedy protagonist.
A long black dress with straight long hair that is shiny like silk. It is the very embodiment of purity.
I had only known her with her hair in a bun and in her part-time job uniform, so this was a shock to me.
“F-forget the flattery, let’s get out of here !”
“I’m not trying to flatter you, but……where are we going?”
“We’re going to buy clothes for me !”
It was lunch time, so the two of us went into a sushi restaurant right near the station. It is the one that doesn’t rotate.
We sat down at a table for two and took a break.
…I was carrying a lot of baggage. I want to punch myself for making such a painful misunderstanding that maybe she has feelings for me.
As expected from someone who is the daughter of a conglomerate, she had purchased a ridiculous amount of clothes, but she gave me all of them. For about 5 hours and a little while until now.
From the side, I’m a complete servant.
…No, well, just seeing Emiko san’s various outfits was enough,…..but I honestly wondered what it was,…….
“………Kento, I’m sorry. Today was boring, wasn’t it?”
Emiko san suddenly turned her face down and apologized.
“……What’s wrong with you suddenly becoming so calm?”
“I always let my servant carry it, so it just became a habit…”
……She’s a real lady…….she’s got a real servant in real life.
“You hate it,…..don’t you,……..ugh……”
……No seriously. She’s not going to start crying, is she?
“What’s wrong? You suddenly started crying.”
I took an unused handkerchief out of my pocket and gently wiped away her tears.
“…….I’m afraid that I’ll fail you. I’m afraid that you will be disappointed in me. ……Because I love you.”
……..Who could have predicted that she would confess her love to me at a high-end sushi restaurant.
