“Hm, this place…..”
I didn’t notice it, partly due to the tension of being alone with Senpai and partly because I was walking down a street I wasn’t used to.
I followed Senpai’s instructions, and when I turned the corner, I found my house.
Maybe Senpai’s house is really nearby?
“Um, how far is your house from here?”
“Just a few blocks away.”
It seems that Senpai is a closer neighbor than I thought.
Well, then it is no wonder that she knows my mother.
My mother, who often took walks on weekends and holidays, became friends with some of the ladies in the neighborhood and sometimes brought them over to our house.
I’m sure that’s how she got to know Senpai.
“Hmm? What’s wrong, Senpai?
For some reason, she stopped in front of my house.
Then she looked up at the house.
“Eh, this is my house though.”
“Yeah, you didn’t have lunch yet, did you?”
“W-well, yeah. What’s wrong?”
“I’ll cook. Auntie wants me to.”
While I couldn’t hide my surprise, Senpai tried to enter the house with a blank look on her face.
I hurriedly called out to her.
“You don’t like it?”
“No, it’s not that I don’t like it, but……..”
“Is it a nuisance?”
“N-no…..I think I’m more of a nuisance.”
“No, not a t all. I like cooking.”
“Was my cooking bad?”
At this time, I saw for the first time the sad expression on Senpai’s face.
There was almost no change in her expression, but h\er big eyes became a little moist, and her mouth suddenly turned into a thin line.
I could not hold back any longer when I saw that look.
“Um,…..are you sure it’s okay?”
“….Yeah. I’ll make pasta today.”
“O-okay. I’ll unlock the door then.”
I quickly unlocked the door, and Senpai entered the house before me, took off her shoes, and went straight to the kitchen.
I thought to myself as I watched her back.
If she and my mother are close, then she must know my mother is not always home.
And maybe she’s told her that she has been leaving me alone, and that’s why she’s so concerned about me.
…..Maybe she’s a good person to take care of me.
When I got to know her better, I realized that she was actually a kind and a pampering older sister type.
Wait, wait, wait, what are you getting excited about?
This is just a pity.
If I don’t show off my manly side, she won’t see me as a full-fledged man.
I’ll just help her prepare the food for now.
“Senpai, can I help you with something?”
I followed her into the kitchen.
Then she was already wearing an apron, and glanced at me with her hair tied up,
“No. Stay in your room.”
She simply refused.
Then, ignoring me, she started washing her hands in the sink.
I tried calling out to her again, but Senpai didn’t even look at me and started taking out the cooking utensils.
The aura was so strong that she didn’t want to talk to me any more, so I left.
Embarrassed by how excited I was, I returned to my room and collapsed onto the bed.
“…I guess I’m not in her sight after all.”
Due to a series of recent coincidences, I had mistakenly thought that I had become acquainted with Senpai.
From Senpai’s point of view, I’m just an acquaintance’s son.
….I kinda feel a little frustrated.
But she doesn’t have to act so coldly.
I’m an idiot.
I’m not sure why I was so cold to him.
Tokiwa kun, you seemed a little sad.
But I’m not confident that I can cook properly with Tokiwa kun watching me.
It’s okay if it’s just washing dishes, but if he sees me cooking all the time, I’ll be too nervous to cook well.
Yes, I definitely can’t do it.
Just thinking about the two of us being in the house like this makes me hot all over and I can’t stop shaking.
This never happened to me when I first came to his house.
Every time I see him, my feelings for Tokiwa kun get bigger.
Every time he helps me, my feelings for Tokiwa kun overflow from my body.
I feel like I’m going crazy.
I’m so happy every day, I feel like I’m going crazy.
That’s why I can’t help but feel anxious when I think that Tokiwa kun might not like me because I can’t cook well, and I end up behaving like that.
I’m sure Tokiwa kun will understand me, right?
When he comes downstairs again, I will put my earlier attitude behind me and be kind to him.
“Tokiwa kun……I will do my best to cook with all my love.”
Today’s menu is carbonara.
Ehehe, I’m going to make it with lots of eggs and milk.
