The delinquent, who was about to reach for Senpai, looked back at me again and grinned.
I prepared myself.
He would take me somewhere dark and beat me to a pulp.
I braced myself for it.
The man grabbed my shoulders.
I shuddered, but I managed to squeeze out a last bit of resistance.
“……Um, I don’t care what happens to me, j-just let her go.”
I was so shaky that I didn’t know what was going on.
But since I told such a big lie, I at least want to help her.
As I was hoping so, my neck was locked with a jerk.
Am I going to be strangled to death here?
Just when I was about to give up, I heard a laugh.
“Ha-ha-ha, what’s the matter with you, you’re so manly !”
The man lightly squeezed my neck with his arm, but he didn’t really put any effort into it, but rather hugged me.
“I’m sorry, Mr. We didn’t mean to pick up your girlfriend or anything. But I like guys who are willing to put their bodies on the line for their girlfriends.”
“H-hm? Ah, um.”
“I’m Takashiro from Akaitohama South High School. Well, because of my appearance, I’m often misunderstood. I’m not very smart, but I’m not a delinquent or anything.”
When the man who introduced himself as Takashiro spoke in a friendly manner, his friends teased him, saying, [No, no, no, you were irritated earlier.]
“I was just annoyed because she was being so cold to me, you know? But seriously, I’m sorry.”
“Well, there are a lot of people around here who are scared of me, so if you have any trouble, feel free to use my name. I’m sorry about today.”
Takashiro quickly left the building with his cronies.
“….Haa, thank goodness.”
My nervousness, which was sure to be lynched, suddenly relaxed and I felt like I was about to collapse on the spot.
But at that moment, I see Senpai standing frozen in front of me.
“Ah,……um, are you all right?”
Senpai was frozen.
With vacant eyes, she stared at the floor.
I wonder if she was quite scared…….
“I-it’s okay now. W-when I talked to him, he seemed like a surprisingly nice person.”
No matter how I tried to talk to her, Senpai remained frozen.
Maybe she’s angry that I just called her my girlfriend?
“S-senpai, what I said before was to get rid of them, erm, I’m sorry.”
No, she is too unresponsive to anything I say.
I wonder if it’s more annoying for me to be here……
However, I was lucky enough to be able to talk to the people I talked to earlier, but there are a lot of unscrupulous people like that wandering around the area.
I’m worried about leaving her there.
“Um, I’ll walk you home if you want.”
I knew that she would most likely say no, but I wanted her to at least let me care about her while I was helping her.
“Um, are you meeting up with someone or something? If so, shall I stay here until then?”
No matter what I said, she didn’t respond.
I wanted her to at least say something, but if I talked to her any more persistently, I’d end up causing more trouble for Senpai.
If she wanted me to leave her alone, I had no choice.
I gave up and left the building without her.
As I turned around, I was grabbed by the hem of my clothes.
“….Can you give me a lift?”
I turned around and saw that she was holding my clothes with trembling fingers.
“Um, are you going home?”
Senpai gave a small nod, but froze again.
I managed to resist the awkwardness of having my clothes pinched by Senpai and was about to freeze, and as I took a step forward, I said to her,
“W-well then, please follow me.”
I said awkwardly and we left the building together.
Tokiwa kun, why are you always so wonderful?
When she called my name, I was already almost knocked unconscious.
And he proudly introduced me as his girlfriend in front of strangers.
I’m so happy.
I was a little worried that since I’m such a shy and gloomy girl, you might not want other people to know that you are dating someone like me.
I don’t think he even told Mother-in-law.
I was worried.
But it wasn’t like that.
He told everyone about us.
Girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend…….
Tokiwa kun is a tsundere, so he doesn’t usually call me his girlfriend, but I like the way he makes it clear in public.
I love him.
I am Tokiwa kun’s favorite girlfriend.
That one word made me wet all over.
I couldn’t even look him in the eye after that.
I could barely stand up.
I was shaking all over.
Tokiwa kun sacrifices himself for a useless woman like me who can’t even take care of a house by herself.
He looked at me with concern as I was about to collapse from the sight of Tokiwa kun’s bravery.
But he also shows me that it’s not enough to be so lenient.
He pretends to be fed up with me when I don’t say anything, and is mean to me, saying he’s going to leave me alone and go home.
I like him even if he is harsh like that.
I love him.
I love him.
But if he leaves me alone, I’ll be lonely.
If I’m left alone, I’ll die.
So I gathered all my courage and stopped him.
Then he took in my courage.
Ehehe, let’s go home together.
Girlfriend, he said.
Let’s go home together and do something.
Well, before we did that, I was wondering if he would hold my hand on the way home.
I’m afraid I’ll get wet again if he does that, and I might not be able to stand up.
Please hold me up.
I love you.
“Tokiwa kun, hold me.”
