I became friends with the school’s idol.

It’s something I honestly don’t feel, but it’s something I’m sure of.

A friend to mine huh …….


Oh, no, no, no.

I grinned unintentionally.

Well, But I can’t help it.

I’ve always wanted a friend, even though I’ve been saying I’m longing for one.

It’s okay to grin at least for now.

So I walked around in search of a vending machine.

It has been a month since I started talking to Iyoki-san.

I was no longer concerned about the stares and rumors around me.

Is it a mistake to worry about it?

Finally, I found the vending machine I was looking for, and started to look around.

It’s almost summer, and yet they have a vending machine that sells konpota. (Cream, corn soup)

I thought it was just for punishment games.

I’m going to buy some tea and go back to the classroom.

Lunch break will be over in ten minutes.

I took out my wallet and put in some coins.

I am thirsty. so—

“Ah, Iriake kun!”


The item fell with a clatter.

I was spoken to unexpectedly, and I pushed the appropriate button by reflex.

And only at a time like this,

“This is Konpota …….”

“I-I’m sorry. Suddenly I spoke to you.”

“It’s okay. I just wanted a konpota.”

“Fufu, You’re very strange, aren’t you? Iriake-kun.”

“Hahaha. ……”

Today too, I was thinking that Iyoki san is a beautiful woman and sipped on a glass of konpota.


When I frowned, I was surprised to see a cold plastic bottle pressed against my cheek.

“It’s so cold!”

“Here you go. I can’t drink this much.”

“Are you sure?”


“T-Thank you very much.”

I gratefully accept it.

The cold tea soaks into my dry throat.

This is it.

“But anyway, what brings you here, Iyoki-san?”

“I was just wandering around at random. Then I saw Iriake kun’s figure.”

“I see. Really, we often run into each other, don’t we?”

“Fufu, Yes, that’s right.”

I feel like I run into Iyoki-san every time I leave the classroom.

I’m used to the impossible encounter rate, so I’m a little scared.

But, well, there’s no way it was intentional, is there?

“Ah, it’s almost time for fifth period.”

“That’s right. Shall we go back?”

After school.

I was planning to go home right away, but my homeroom teacher stopped me

I was told to take my notebook to the social studies preparation room.

And that too with Sato-san, a girl in my class.

Well, it was the day duty, so I had no choice but to do it, but it was the most awkward thing I had ever done.

I carried two thirds of the notebook and Sato-san carried the rest as we walked down the corridor.

While I was puzzling over what to say, Sato-san started talking to me

“Iriake kun is good friends with Sae-sama, isn’t he?”

“Well, we’re friends.”

Because I wanted to say “friend,” I went out of my way to say that

I see, so this is a friend. That’s the best.

“Eh, you’re friends?! Unexpected!”

“Unexpected?! I-I see.”

It’s true that Iyoki-san and I don’t have much in common, and we don’t match.

But when you say that to my face, it makes me feel a little bad.

“No, that’s not what I meant, I meant I thought you were dating.”

“Ah, I see, that’s what you meant. I’m glad to hear that. ……,wait I’m not in a relationship with her you know!?”

“Hahaha, nice retort!”

“Please don’t make fun of me.”

I started to feel somewhat relaxed.

As we walked along, conversing moderately, we ran into Iyoki-san.

“Ah, Iyoki san”

Come to think of it, we had been going to and from school every day recently.

Maybe she was going to my classroom.

“Iriake-kun, who is that person?”

“Eh? That person?”

Iyoki-san’s gaze flashed from me to Sato-san, who was standing next to me.

Sato-san’s body trembled when she saw Iyoki-san’s gaze.

“This is my classmate, Sato-san.”

“Hee? So?”

“E-Eh? So?”

“Yeah, so?”

I wonder why.

The always friendly Iyoki-san’s atmosphere is scary.

I was wondering if I had done something to offend her.

I was wondering what to do, when Sato-san, who was being stared at by Iyoki-san, hurriedly opened her mouth.

“T-This is the day shift work! I’m just heading to the social studies preparation room because I and Iriake kun were on day duty today!”

“Are you sure?”

“I-I swear to God! Amen!”

Why are you asking for help?

Now Iyoki-san looks at me.

“Y-Yes it is”

Why does she need this confirmation?

I was puzzling over this, and then she returned to her usual soft expression, as if she was satisfied with my answer.

“I see. I understand. Then I’ll wait in the shoe box.”

“Ah, I’m sorry. I’ll be right there.”

“Well, good luck, Iriake kun”

“Thank you.”

I left Iyoki-san and went back to the social studies preparation room.

“Even so, this day shift job is a tough one, isn’t it?”

“……Y-yes, it is.”


After that, Sato-san was kind of clipped.

“……Even though he is my Iriake-kun. Why other women?”
