“I was a little early. Nobody’s here.”

I woke up early this morning after having a good time with a girl for the first time yesterday and even calling her on the phone.

I got on the train earlier than usual and arrived at school to find the classroom empty.

But Kaneko will come soon, so does Miyama san and Takaya san.

I hope we can have a good time talking about yesterday.

“But I ran into Hyori senpai yesterday too, by coincidence, right?”

I took an earlier train this morning, so I didn’t see her.

Honestly, when I encounter her this many times, I feel like we’ve become acquaintances.

I wonder if she recognizes me?

I wonder if she might be mistaking me for a stalker because I see her so often.

“…..Well, I haven’t done anything wrong. I mean, being alone is so boring.”

I looked at my watch and it was only 7:30.

I was a little lonely once I went to class.

Feeling a little lonely, I leave the classroom.

I wandered aimlessly around the quiet school building in the morning to kill some time, and went straight to the shoeboxes.

From the school grounds, I hear the sounds of morning practice for the club activities.

“……Hm, that’s?”

I looked toward the courtyard and saw a male student who appeared to be a senior.

He is a bit large.

And across from him was a familiar figure.

“Hyori senpai. What is she doing?”

She was facing the male student with a blank expression on her face as usual, but she didn’t seem to be in a good mood.

With nothing better to do, I just got a little closer out of curiosity, and I heard a conversation.

“Hey, Hyori, is there something with me? It’s okay to just play with me once.”

the male student says to her in a desperate tone.

It seems that he is asking out Hyori senpai.

After all, if she is that beautiful, she must be popular.

I wonder if Senpai is going to take his offer?

Even though it doesn’t matter, I just can’t help but stop in my tracks.


“Hey, say something. Tell me what’s wrong with me.”

“Is that okay? Everything.”

“Wha……no, even though I look like this, I’m a regular on the soccer team and I’m good at studying.”

“If that’s the kind of status that makes me fall in love with someone, I’ll marry a soccer player.”

“T-that’s a very extreme view.”

“Then, let me ask you, what do you like about me that you’re asking me out?”

“That’s…….just because I think you’re cute, is that bad?”

“It’s not a bad thing. But I don’t think you’re cool either, so it’s hard for me to be seen with you.”


“I’ll leave you with this. Goodbye and don’t talk to me again.”


The boy who was rejected so severely crumpled to the ground and squatted down as if to collapse on the spot.

And without showing any signs of being worried about him, Hyori senpai disappeared somewhere.

For the first time, I heard Hyori senpai’s proper conversation.

She is as cold-hearted as the rumors say.

I see, if Kaneko’s senior was also dumped like that, there’s no way that good rumors would spread.

…That means she’s not someone I can get close to.

When I realized once again what kind of person Hyori senpai was, my faint expectations and delusions were erased.

I can’t even imagine her being open to someone and becoming attracted to them.

In fact, I’ve encountered her here and there and held her hand without her permission, but there’s a possibility that she’s keeping an eye on me.

It would be better to stay away from her as much as possible.

I knew there was a possibility that she was the one who sent me the lunchbox and the letter, but I was wrong.

There was no way she would do such a thing.

I’m really glad I didn’t make a mistake and get carried away.

“……But then who could it be?”

In the end, I was back to square one with the bento.

It is possible that it was meant to be given to someone else.

If so, I feel bad for the person who made the lunch box.

“Hey, Sendai, you’re early.”

“Oh, Kaneko, good morning. You seem to be in high spirits.”

I was about to go back to the classroom when Kaneko, who had just arrived at the school, spotted me and came over here.

“Hehe, I was on the phone with Takaya san all night yesterday. Oh, by the way, Miyama san wanted to know your contact information, so I gave it to her.”

“Yeah, she called me.”

“So you too. Let’s get along well with each other.”

“Well, let’s take it easy.”

While we were talking at our seats, Takaya san and Miyama san came into the classroom.

Takaya san was waving to Kaneko.

But when I looked at Miyama san, she looked away for some reason.


“Hey, hey, Sendai, did you get into a fight earlier?”

“N-no. Yesterday, we just had a normal chat.”

“Hmmm. Maybe she’s aware of it and she’s feeling awkward.”

“…….I hope so.”

But I don’t feel that way.

Of course, I’ve never really talked to girls before, so I don’t know what I could know, but that’s what I thought intuitively.


It is obvious that she is avoiding me.

But I don’t know why.

And it’s not like I’m close enough to ask her why she’s avoiding me.

In the end, I was left in a state of uncertainty as class began.

I was expecting Miyama san to talk to me during every break, but instead of talking to me, we didn’t make eye contact at all.

It was lunch time.

“Huh…I wonder what that attitude is, Miyama san.”

I ate alone today.

Kaneko and Takaya san are at the school cafeteria together.

So, Miyama san left the classroom right after lunch break.

So, with no one to invite, I decided to go to the store to buy some bread and fill my lonely belly today.

“Ah, again…….”

On the way to the store, I passed a shoebox and once again there was a lunch box hanging from my shoebox.

I picked it up again and looked around.

But I don’t see any girls looking at me.

There is no one.

“…..Who in the world?”

Two days in a row, I received a lunch box from an unknown sender.

As you can imagine, it was a little scary.

But it’s the same lunch box, so I’m sure it’s the same person.

“……Another heart.”

Sitting on the steps in the corner of the school building, I checked inside and found the same lunch box as yesterday, with a heart decorated with salmon flakes on top of white rice.

On the side were fried chicken, fried seaweed and potato salad.

All my favorite ingredients.

“……But it would be bad to throw them away.”

Of course, I was afraid to take the first bite.

But when I realized that it didn’t seem to be rotten or poisoned, I decided to enjoy it.

They say that things are innocent.

But I wonder why they don’t give it to me directly.

No matter who the person is, I would be happy if they made a bento for me.

“…Maybe I should put a letter in there again.”

Today, I’m going to spell out my honest feelings.

I’m happy that you made the lunch box, I would like to thank you in person, so please let me know who you are.

After finishing my lunch, I wrote that on a torn notebook and put it in my lunch box.

I also hung the lunch box back up at the shoebox.
