After leaving the beach, we arrived at the home depot without any conversation.
In front of the wide entrance, there were pallets of cardboard boxes piled up, and behind them were many beautiful flowers.
Senpai stopped in front of the entrance.
She looked at the purplish, slightly oddly shaped flowers.
“You like flowers, Senpai?”
“Yes, they are beautiful. I want to put them in my garden.”
“It is indeed beautiful when they bloom in the garden, isn’t it?”
“This is beautiful……”
Senpai crouched down and stared at the flower as if she was absorbed in it.
I don’t even know the name of the flower, but I just know that Senpai wants it.
I glanced at the price tag and saw that it was 1,000 yen for a single pot.
I thought it was pretty expensive, but I knew it wasn’t a price I couldn’t afford,
“I’ll buy it if you want, okay?”
Then she looked at me with a puzzled expression.
“Is it okay?”
“I was so grateful to you for treating me lunch today, and I’d like to at least thank you for your hospitality.”
“….Yeah. Please do.”
Quickly, she grabs a bowl and hands it to me.
However, it is a strangely shaped flower.
Is it really okay like this?
There are many more beautiful flowers like pansies.
“Is this really what you want? If you have something else, you can have that one too.”
“This is fine. This is what I want.”
“H-haa. Well, shall I ask the cashier to keep it for now?”
I took the flowers into the store.
After leaving them with the cashier right after entering the store, I took a shopping basket and went to the cooking utensils section.
When I went into the aisle where there were pans and pots, Senpai looked very interested as she picked them up, put them back, and began to examine the items.
I was looking at the price tags and thinking to myself, [This is cheap] or [This is great] because I knew that Senpai was a good cook.
I wondered if Senpai was particular about the cooking utensils because she was a good cook, and she picked up a large frying pan and threw it into the basket I was holding.
“Um, is this okay?”
“Yeah. I’ll also buy a knife and a cutting board.”
“Erm, it looks like they’re over there.”
Now we went to the kitchen knife corner.
There were many packaged kitchen knives lined up on the shelves.
But this time, Senpai did not hesitate to pick up one of the knives and immediately put it in the basket.
“D-do you have the same knife you always use?”
“Yeah. It’s very sharp.”
“Heh. I’ve never been particular about tools, so I’d like to know what you use.”
“Steel and stainless steel are better than ceramic. Also, there are different types of stainless steel.”
“I see. I’m impressed because I really don’t know anything at all.”
“I just looked up kitchen knives because I want one that cuts well. Now, let’s go to the cash register.”
We went to the cash register and started to pay the bill.
The total amount at the register, including the cost of the flowers, was just 6,000 yen.
I took out my wallet, thinking that I could bill my mother for the equipment later,
There was only 4,000 yen in my wallet.
Oh, no, I hadn’t checked the contents of my wallet.
The cashier asked me, [How can I help you?] When I was getting nervous, Senpai quietly pulled out a 5,000 yen bill from behind me.
“Is this enough?”
“Eh, n-no I can’t. This is for my house, so I’ll handle it.”
“But it’s not enough, right?”
“T-that’s……I-I’ll go and withdraw it now.”
“The bank is a long way away. Besides, the guy behind the line is stuck.”
I was so slow that there was almost a queue at the cash register.
Seeing this, I reluctantly accepted the money from Senpai.
I took out only 1,000 yen from her wallet and paid the bill.
“I’m so sorry, Senpai, but please make sure you bill my mother for the bill later.”
As soon as I left the store, I apologized to Senpai.
I had asked her to go shopping with me, but I didn’t even bring the money with me and she payed for me, which was nothing but rude.
I bowed my head a few times to see if she was angry with me.
However, Senpai said, [Don’t worry about it] with the same calm demeanor.
“Thanks for the flowers.”
“Eh? No, it’s not like I bought it.”
“No, you paid for these flowers. I’ll put them in the garden when I get home.”
“I-I see. Well, then, I have some luggage. Shall we go home?”
Senpai, who holds the flowerpot with great care, is very elegant.
The flowers look great on her. The slightly purplish color of the flowers goes well with the cool Senpai.
But what is really the name of the flower?
“Senpai, isn’t it heavy?”
“Don’t worry. I want to carry it.”
“Are yours heavy, too?”
“Me? No, I don’t mind at all.”
The flowerpot is probably heavier than the bag containing the frying pan and so on.
Tokiwa kun, you are so stylish.
It’s so nice of you to convey your love through the language of flowers. I love it.
This flower blooms in spring and is named so because it looks like an anchor, but I know the meaning of this flower.
The language of flowers is [I’ll never let you go.]
Tokiwa kun is so cool that he even knows the language of flowers and gave it to me as a gift.
And he casually said, [Isn’t it heavy?] I can’t believe he said that.
Well, if it’s Tokiwa kun’s feeling, it’s not heavy at all.
In fact, I was thinking that it was not heavy for a woman who contributes money.
It doesn’t bother me.
Ehehe, I thought I was pretty heavy, but Tokiwa kun is so kind that he embraces my whole personality.
Fufufu, where should I put these flowers?
Maybe I should put them in the corner of the garden where I can see Tokiwa kun’s room.
Or maybe I should put them at the entrance. I can see the kitchen from there.
Time to gaze at Tokiwa kun while enjoying the fragrance of these flowers……yeah, it’s very nice.
I should be carrying something heavy, but somehow my body is getting more and more lighter
Tokiwa kun, it’s just the two of us for the rest of the day.
I’m going to fry something in my new frying pan.
I think I’ll make omelet rice again today.
I asked my mother-in-law about it, and she said she was very pleased with it.
I was a little embarrassed last time because she was there.
Now I’m going to draw a big heart mark on it.
Please look forward to it.
I’ve received Tokiwa kun’s feelings through these flowers.
I will never leave you.
