“Sendai, dinner is ready.”
My mother called me and I left the room again.
And when I went to the kitchen, I found that Hyori senpai and my mother were already sitting down facing each other.
“What are you staring at? Here, sit over there.”
“Eh, I’m sitting next to Senpai?”
“Obviously. Don’t tell me you’re having dinner next to your mother.”
I was afraid to sit next to Hyori senpai.
Then, in addition to the pleasant smell of hamburg steak, a sweet and comforting aroma gently tickles my nostrils.
I don’t know what it is, but I feel fluffy when I smell her scent.
“Then let’s eat. Shion chan, thank you for today.”
“No. It’s not a big deal.”
“Look, Sendai, don’t be shocked and eat it quickly.”
I was engrossed by the sight and scent of Senpai next to me, and I smiled and put my hands together.
And then I took a bite of the hamburg steak.
“Mmmm, Shion chan’s cooking is delicious. Sendai, you should be more grateful to her for making such a delicious dish.”
“T-thank you very much,……um, Hyori senpai.”
“Yeah. Eat a lot.”
Without changing her expression, Senpai said so in a small voice.
When I listened to it again, it was a very clear and beautiful voice.
After carrying the cut hamburg steak into her small mouth, she glanced at me.
“U-um……is there something?”
“Thank you for the stuffed animal.”
“Eh? O-oh, it’s nothing, was that……or something annoying?”
“No, it made me very happy. I’ll take good care of it.”
I guess she was really happy about the stuffed animal.
And she also remembered me properly…
It’s been a long time since I felt this happy, even though it was a trivial matter.
“U-um, Hyori senpai.”
I was so happy to be remembered by Senpai that I ended up talking to her, but she didn’t seem to be interested in getting close to me after all.
I looked away and kept silent.
Seeing this, I gave up and continued eating.
All three of us ate our hamburg steaks in silence.
I could say that we had nothing to talk about, but more than that, her cooking was delicious, and my mother was so absorbed in it that she forgot to talk.
“Thanks for the meal. Shion chan, it was really delicious. Right, Sendai?”
“Y-yeah. It was delicious.”
“No, I’m glad you liked it.”
“Well, I’m going out later.
“I have a lot of company. Take care of the rest.”
After putting down the chopsticks, my mother quickly went back to her room.
I was stunned to see her as usual, and Senpai who was sitting next to me also got up from her seat.
I thought that since she came here as an acquaintance of my mother’s, it was only natural that she would leave when she went out.
As I thought about it, for some reason she started cleaning up the dishes.
“…..Is there something wrong?”
“N-no. I’ll take care of the dishes, okay?”
“No, I’ll do it.”
I’ll do it. – But, but…” “Because it’s cooking until you clean up. Or is that a nuisance?”
“I-it’s not like that.”
“Well, you take your time.”
I don’t know how she came to my house, but I don’t feel comfortable making her clean up afterwards, even if she is a guest.
But her emotionless eyes never let me say whether or not I agree with her.
I watched her as she silently carried the dishes to the kitchen.
I was fascinated by the way she was doing her chores with such ease.
As she washed the dishes, I was dazzled by the way she lightly rolled up her sleeves and tied her long hair back in a high bun.
When I see her slender neck, my heart pounds again.
I was looking at her from behind for a while, and then I came to my senses.
“Um, I’ll help you.”
When I called out to her, Senpai turned around while washing the dishes.
“Then, will you wipe up the dishes?”
She said quietly and then turned her head to the front again.
“Y-yes. I’m sorry, but I’ll leave the washing up to you.”
Fearfully, I stood next to her.
The gentle scent, different from detergent, stimulates my brain again.
Every time she hands me a shiny plate of dishes, my heart almost jumps out of my mouth.
It is just the two of us, with that Hyori senpai, alone in the kitchen of my house.
I still can’t believe that this situation, which would never happen under normal circumstances, is possible.
I silently continued to wipe the dishes.
Tokiwa kun, you are a family-oriented and woman-friendly person, aren’t you?
I like it.
Of course, I would like him even if he was a bit of a rough boy.
He ate my hamburg steak like it was delicious.
I was able to see him eating it so closely.
I got a little wet just looking at Tokiwa kun’s profile as he ate deliciously.
I’m glad I wore jeans.
I was so nervous that I was sweating.
Sweat was dripping down my thighs.
And I love the way he’s wiping the dishes next to me.
When he takes the plate, I can feel his small tremors through the plate.
Even that minute vibration shakes me greatly.
Mother-in-law, you are going out soon, aren’t you?
After this, it’s just me and him at home.
I want to bathe him and wash his back.
I’ll make sure the sheets in the bedroom are in order while he’s relaxing.
Standing in the kitchen together like this, I feel like we’re already married.
I can’t wait to get married and be called [Mrs. Tokiwa] by the neighbors.
It’s going to be a long night today.
