“Oh, so now it’s tomorrow?”
“That’s how it is. I’m counting on you, Sendai san.”
“Yeah, yeah. So, what kind of girls we are coming with?”
“The one I’m aiming at is Takaya san from the same class. And the other girl is also in the same class. Don’t you know Miyama san?”
“Sorry, I don’t know either of them at all.”
“They’re both cute. Well, I’m all about Takaya san, so please go for Miyama san.”
“I’m not going after a girl I’ve never met.”
“Said the guy who took a lunch box from a total stranger.”
“Don’t say that. Well, I’ll see you tomorrow.”
As soon as I hung up the phone, I turned off the light in my room.
As I closed my eyes and thought about tomorrow, thoughts of Hyori senpai came to mind again.
I wonder if she remembers that I touched her hand?
I wonder if it was nothing so trivial for such a beautiful woman as being touched by a man by accident.
But we were on the same train and next to each other.
If the Akaitohama jinx is true, me and her…..no, I’m too delusional.
At best, she’ll probably complain about it the next time she sees me.
I muttered to myself and took a deep breath.
But for some reason, I couldn’t sleep that night.
“Hm, Kaneko? Why are you here?”
In the morning.
Kaneko was waiting for me in front of the station ticket gate.
“Well, it just so happened that my relatives moved to Akitohama yesterday. I was staying there while I was helping them, so I thought I’d surprise you.”
“Hee, this place must be very popular.”
“My relatives are very meek, you know. So let’s take the train together.”
“Fine, but I hope I’m not tied to you by a red thread.”
“Haha, no doubt.”
So today I ride the train with Kaneko.
This morning, Hyori senpai is nowhere to be seen.
I guess everything up until yesterday was just a coincidence, after all.
“What’s up, Sendai? Are you looking for someone?”
“Perhaps there’s always some cute girl around?”
“I’m not that naive. Well, what kind of girl is Takaya san, Kaneko?”
“Well, she’s a gyaru. I like flashy girls.”
“Ah, you seem to like them. What about Miyama san?”
“No, Miyama san is a neat and innocent girl. She seems to have a good personality.”
“Heh. I’m starting to look forward to after school.”
Unlike usual, it is not bad to take the train while talking with friends.
The time that feels long is just a blink of an eye today.
The train soon stopped and I got off the train with the other passengers and headed to school.
I was looking for Hyori senpai again near the main gate.
But she was not there.
It makes me think that what happened until yesterday was just a coincidence.
“…..Yeah, let’s have fun today.”
“I’m glad you’re so enthusiastic. Okay, I’ll ask you to guide me to Akitohama.”
Once I forgot about Hyori senpai and went to the classroom, Kaneko immediately told me which Takaya san and Miyama san were.
The girls were chatting and laughing at the front of the classroom, both of them were so-called “extrovert” girls, and although they were different types, both were cute.
I didn’t talk to them because there were other girls there, but Takaya-san was what you would call a gyaru with brown hair, and a slender, bright-looking girl.
Miyama san was indeed a pure-looking girl with long black hair, but from what I saw, she smiled a lot and looked like an unpretentious Japanese-style beauty.
I realize that Kaneko, who can easily make friends with such girls, is a guy who has lived in a different world from mine.
I’m really lucky to have such a nice guy in my life.
“Hey, aren’t they both cute?”
“Yeah, they sure are. I’m looking forward to after school more and more.”
“All right, let’s get a girlfriend before summer vacation and go to the beach or something.”
“No, we’re going to the beach, right? We’re going to walk on the beach.”
“Yes, but swimming in the ocean is a different story. Swimsuits and all.”
“That’s true. It’s like being in the real world.”
I’m in a world that I have never been a part of.
When I think about it, it’s no wonder that I naturally get excited.
Today, I was thinking everything about after school, so the class felt more boring and longer than usual.
“You’re a boy after all, Tokiwa kun……”
As I waited at the ticket gate, I still could not speak to him.
Even though I went to his house and cooked and prepared a bath for him, I just can’t seem to be proactive when he’s in front of me.
I can’t be aggressive in front of him, but I can’t leave him either.
For some reason, his friend was at the ticket gate today and kidnapped Tokiwa kun as a matter of course.
I don’t know how many times I have fantasized about pushing his friend off the station platform.
But I held back, not wanting to cause Tokiwa kun any grief by doing so.
While holding back, I watched him from the next wagon.
And as soon as I arrived at the station, I heard the conversation as I watched his back as he walked to school.
Tokiwa kun playing with other girls, even though he had no choice but to do so at the invitation of his friend kun.
Thinking of this scene, I felt as if my heart would be torn out of my chest.
I felt as if my whole body would burn and sore.
I don’t like it, I thought.
But this wasn’t cheating, it was just that there was a girl that he wanted to be friends with, and Tokiwa kun was taking a part of it.
Even though I knew that, it was hard for me.
I want to do something about it.
I want to interfere.
I have to get in the way.
I spend the rest of the day thinking about this, and then it’s over in the blink of an eye.
It’s after school.
I have no choice but to believe in him.
I believe that Tokiwa kun will come back to me.
I believe in you.
“That’s why, I’ll just keep watching over you.”
