“Are you done eating?”
Hyori senpai came back just as I was taking the empty dishes to the sink.
“Y-yes. It was very delicious.”
“I see. I’ll do the cleanup.”
“N-no, let me do this much.”
“It’s fine. Let me do it.”
When Senpai comes to my side to wash the dishes, her sweet scent envelopes the whole area, drowning out the smell of detergent.
Then, beside me, she says, [I want to thank you for today.]
When she said that, I was a little happy and stopped my hand.
She was thanking me for saving her.
I was happy just to hear her say that, because I had never heard her say thank you or sorry directly, and I honestly felt that I had taken care of something I shouldn’t have.
“……No, it’s natural that way.”
“B-because,……if someone is in trouble, you can’t just, you know, turn a blind eye, can you?”
Well, I have always had that feeling, but more than half of it is just stubbornness.
The truth is, I want to pretend I don’t know her.
I don’t want to get into trouble.
I’m sure everyone, even if it’s not me, thinks that it doesn’t matter what happens to anyone without their knowledge.
But I didn’t want to seem like such a cold person.
I just said something cool.
“I see. You’re so kind.”
“N-noo, I’m not that kind……a-anyway, please let me do the washing up. I’ve already been thanked enough, and this is just a thank you for making me dinner.”
“Yeah. Then, I’ll wipe the dishes today.”
Senpai goes to the opposite side of me and picks up a dish towel.
She looked at the used cloth and said, [This one needs to be replaced too.]
“N-now that I think about it, it’s already dirty.”
“Yeah. Where do you usually go shopping?”
“I-I guess around here, I go to the nearest supermarket. What about you, Senpai?”
“I sometimes go to the home depot center by the sea. It’s big and has a good selection.”
“Heh, I’ve never been there.”
“Y-yes. I don’t go to the ocean because there are so many tourists.”
“Sea……yeah, let’s go shopping then.”
I couldn’t quite hear her over the sound of running water, but did I just now get invited to go shopping by Senpai?
No, there’s no way.
“Um, what did you say?”
“Shopping. We need to buy a new rag, and if you look closely, the frying pan is rusty.”
“I-I’ll do it tomorrow.”
“No. I want to go check it out.”
“…..You want to go together?”
“Is there any inconvenience with me?”
“N-no. Nothing like that…….”
I hand the washed dishes to Senpai while desperately trying to hold back the trembling in my hands.
I was wondering if it was possible for me to go shopping with Senpai on a holiday, but when I looked at Senpai next to me, she just said, [Wha?]
I hurriedly look away and take a few deep breaths to calm my racing heart.
Eventually, when all the washing is done, Senpai washes her hands and then says, [Go get ready] and takes off her apron.
I was startled by the simple act of removing the apron, but when I was staring at Senpai, she gave me cold stares again, so I ran back to my room.
“Haa……it seems like I’ve been with Senpai all day today.”
I breathed again as I changed clothes in my room.
I never thought that I would end up going out with Senpai on a holiday.
I don’t go out much, so I don’t really have any casual clothes.
For now, I’ll just wear jeans and a shirt…hmm, well, I guess it’s something like this.
I don’t want to keep Senpai waiting too long.
……I’m getting nervous.
I’m glad I was able to say it correctly.
I was able to invite Tokiwa kun to go shopping.
We’re going out together.
Besides, when we go to the home depot store, we’re going to take the road by the sea.
That’s what I really want to do.
Two people who walk together on Akaitohama will get married.
I don’t really believe in this kind of superstition.
But if Tokiwa kun accidentally walks there with someone else, I would kill her out of jealousy.
I don’t want that.
I don’t want Tokiwa kun to be tied by a red thread to another girl.
Even if that were to happen, I would probably cut that thread and tie a knot in my thread.
But since it’s such a big deal, it’s better not to have any knots.
Ehehe, I’ll buy some more daily necessities while we’re shopping.
Also, the clock in Tokiwa kun’s room ran out of battery.
Yeah, I have a lot of things to do.
Housewives are so busy.
I have to take care of my husband, so it’s hard work.
But I am happy.
That sense of fulfillment fills me up.
I want everything Tokiwa kun used to be something I bought for him.
Everything Tokiwa kun eats must be made by me.
Tokiwa kun must always be with me.
I won’t allow it, okay?
Cheating on me is absolutely not allowed, okay?
Fufu, I’ll have to ask you to refrain from playing with your friends from now on.
“Fufu, have you changed your clothes yet? I’m already prepared.”
