As usual, my voice is the only one that echoes in vain at the empty front door of my house.
As expected, my mother doesn’t seem to be home today either.
“…..There’s no leftovers, huh?”
And the bathtub isn’t even boiling.
Everything was set up so well that I wondered what happened yesterday, so it became a chore to cook for myself.
If I had a girlfriend who would do anything for me at a time like this……or if the girl who made me lunch was really a girl, maybe she would even take care of me.
“……No, that’s too convenient. Yeah, and now that I think about it, I’ve eaten a lunch that I don’t even know who made them.”
There’s also the fact that he was pushed by Kaneko.
Well, as a result, I saved some money on lunch.
“…Hmm, come to think of it, we didn’t have any ingredients at home.”
I’m in a lazy mood today, and then I look in the fridge and despair even more.
I just remembered that the supermarket was temporarily closed yesterday, and the convenience store I went to after that was robbed, so I ended up not buying anything.
I had been careless.
It was all because of the senior I met on the train earlier.
“Hyori senpai. Probably lives nearby, right?”
I remembered the feeling of her hand on my hand again.
I touched a woman’s hand for the first time in my life.
Even if it was unintentional.
If we had been lovers, it would have been better.
“…Well, there’s no point in worrying about it forever. Besides, I’m hungry, so I’m going to buy something.”
I put on my shoes to head to the convenience store where I had suffered a bad experience yesterday, hoping that today would be the day.
When I stepped outside, I found a slightly cold wind blowing.
I had to put on a jacket, and it was a little chilly, partly because this area is by the sea.
“Ugh, it’s especially cold today. Maybe I should buy some warm soup.”
The convenience store I arrived at was open for business as usual, seemingly unaffected by yesterday’s incident.
As soon as I entered the store, I was approached by a middle-aged man in a store uniform.
“Oh, you ! It was you, wasn’t it, who caught the criminal yesterday?
“Eh? N-no, I didn’t do anything.”
“What are you talking about, I know because I saw you on the security camera. I asked the police, but they wouldn’t tell me who you are because it’s private information.”
“Ah, sorry, I’m the manager here. And I wanted to thank you for your help.”
“Thank me? No, no, no, you don’t have to.”
“Don’t say that. If I give you money, there might be a problem, so I’ll treat you to anything you like from this store.”
The manager, who continued, didn’t listen to what I had to say.
Just like the policeman yesterday.
They had no doubt that I had caught the culprit.
“……Then, can I have this bento?”
“Is that all you want? I’ll fill it with juice and snacks as well.”
“N-no, no, it’s fine, really.”
“Haha, thanks to you, my employees are safe and sound without injury. This is nothing at all.”
The manager was packing a large bag full of items in addition to the bento I had ordered, but I couldn’t say anything.
I took the items and tried to pay for them, but of course he refused, and gave me his business card if I wanted.
[You’re welcome to come and visit us anytime] the store manager says with a refreshing smile, and the employees lined up at the cash register are all grinning.
I was now a hero in this store.
I felt so awkward that I bowed my head and quickly left the store.
“Haa…it seems like it’s becoming harder to go to that convenience store.”
It really makes me realize that being treated like a hero doesn’t suit my nature.
If I had been a really brave high school student, I would have thought the same thing.
I’ve never wanted anything in return for what I’ve done for others.
Besides, everything I did was a coincidence.
I was not raised to be so brazen that I would be happy to be thanked for something like this.
“But I’ve got to make sure that people don’t find out that I’m the high school student they’ve been talking about.”
I don’t want people around me to make a fuss any more.
I hope there aren’t any of our students working at the convenience store.
I was strangely tired even though I just went shopping at a convenience store.
I wonder if this was fatigue.
I really wish I had a girlfriend who could heal me at times like this.
The first thing that popped into my head as I thought about it was Hyori senpai’s face.
It would never happen, but it would be fun to be in a relationship with such a beautiful woman.
But she is always alone, and I often see her around the neighborhood and at school.
I wonder if there is a chance for me too…..no, there isn’t.
“Well, I got a lot of things from the convenience store, so I thought I’d treat myself today.”
I went to the kitchen to eat the bento I got earlier.
There was nothing on the table when I came home earlier, but when I looked at it, there was white stew on the table.
It was steaming hot, and the kitchen smelled delicious.
“Mom, did you come all the way home to make dinner? I wonder if she’s already gone out. She’s such an impatient person, seriously.”
I wish I didn’t have to go to the convenience store if this is the case.
But, well, let’s have the bento for breakfast tomorrow and have some stew today.
“Thanks for the food……hm, it’s good.”
It’s as good as ever.
It was just the right amount of flavor to whet my appetite.
In no time at all, I finished it as if I was pouring it down my throat.
Ah, that was good. Well, I’m going to boil a bath.
Feeling full and a little more energized, I went to the bathroom.
The bathtub, which had been empty when I returned home a few minutes before, was filled with hot water.
“Mom, you’re so thoughtful. I should at least thank her when she gets home.”
I felt like I was getting something out of it, so I took off my clothes and went to the bathtub.
I soaked in the water up to my shoulders and looked up at the ceiling.
“Hmm, the water is so nice. I really wish it was like this every day.”
After only two days of being pampered, I felt completely degraded.
I honestly don’t even want to cook, and I want someone else to do my bath and laundry.
I wish my mother would take care of me like this every day, but that would probably be on a whim.
That’s why I want a girlfriend who will do everything for me.
Well, Kaneko asked me to take him on a double date.
The purpose, of course, is to get to know the girl he likes.
I wonder if I could take advantage of that and get to know a nice girl and make a good impression on her.
That would be fun.
“I’ll try to call Kaneko when I get out of the bath.”
I was soaking in the bathtub for a while, waiting for my body to warm up to the core, and I was thinking about the luxury of having a towel and a change of clothes left for me when I got out of the bath.
Maybe I’m lazy at heart.
Thanks to the fact that my parents left me alone, I started to do everything.
In a way, I guess it was the right way to educate myself.
When I came out of the bath, I found my change of clothes folded up in a basket in the changing room.
I didn’t notice it, but I guess my mother did this too.
I’m really starting to get scared of a lot of things.
“……Smells so good. Did she change the fabric softener?”
I put my sleeves on a sweatshirt with an unfamiliar scent before returning to my room.
And after sitting on the bed in my room, I immediately called Kaneko.
“He ate the stew properly. Hehe, I’ll leave you a change of clothes.”
After Tokiwa kun headed for the bath, I took his clothes to the changing room.
I really wanted to have dinner with him, but I was too scared to leave in case he said the stew wasn’t good enough.
So I kept watching him from behind a pillar.
Now I’m staring at the bathroom where he is from the dressing room.
“He’s right there……no, I shouldn’t interrupt his bath.”
I would love to do things like take a bath with him and sleep with him, though.
All of those things we can do every day when we get married.
“I want to get married soon. Then I wouldn’t have to go out like this every day.”
I’m sad that I have to go home after this.
I want to wipe your body after your bath.
I want you to warm me up too.
But if we make out here, Tokiwa kun’s body will get cold.
I’ll be in trouble if you catch a cold.
If Tokiwa kun collapses, I……will die.
Yes, today, please spend your time feeling me in your loungewear that is soaked with my scent.
Bye bye, Tokiwa kun. See you tomorrow.
I’ll be waiting for you at the ticket gate tomorrow.
