“Cute. Hey, it’s cute, right?”
“Are you okay?”
“Eh, ah, yeah, sorry. It’s cute.”
I left the arcade with Senpai, with the afterglow of the hug still lingering.
Senpai carefully holds the stuffed animal in one arm, occasionally muttering [It’s cute] and hugging it tightly to feel how it feels.
And her other hand connected to mine.
I can’t feel my other hand for a while.
The feeling that this place is real is fading.
I feel a hug from Senpai.
She hugged me.
What was that all about?
If it was just a gesture of gratitude and skinship, as like a foreigner, then maybe that’s true.
But would Senpai, who did not seem to be so cheerful or aggressive, do something like that to someone she had no feelings for?
No, I don’t think so.
If that’s the case, Senpai is…
“Why did you do that?”
“Erm….um, like hugging.”
I couldn’t express myself well because I couldn’t think straight, but I wanted to find out the truth about the hug, so I asked her with all my might.
“You told me to hug you as hard as I could.”
That was the reply.
“I-is it because I said so?”
Maybe Senpai is an airhead.
I had of course meant to hug the stuffed animal as much as she could, but she misunderstood and hugged me.
I was relieved, but also disappointed.
The truth of the hug was something like this.
“T-then, shall we go home? Since we’re already done.”
“Yeah. I’ll have to hug in again when I get home.”
I know that this is for a stuffed animal, but the hug with Senpai is burned into my head and I can’t get it out.
Senpai’s scent, up close, was sweet like chocolate.
Her arms were unbelievably soft, too.
Senpai’s… parts of her body that shouldn’t be touched were in close contact with my body.
I knew what it felt like to be held by Senpai.
If something like that happens to me, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stay calm when I get home.
But I’m just starting to get to know her a little better, and I don’t want to be a beast and put everything we’ve been through in jeopardy.
And also, she’s an important acquaintance of my mother’s.
I can’t do anything rash if I think that Senpai might report to my mother might report me if I do something strange to her.
I exhaled to compose myself, and she tugged on my hand and looked a little further ahead.
“Are you tired? Want to take a break?”
“Yeah, I think there’s a park just down the street. Then, let’s sit down for a while.”
“You don’t want to rest?”
“Eh? No, no, I’m just going to take a break on a bench in the park.”
“……Yeah. Okay, that’s fine.”
Today there was no wind and the sun was shining.
When I went to the park, I saw children playing on the playground equipment and their parents watching over them.
It’s a very heartwarming scene.
“Ah, there’s a bench available. Shall we sit down?”
“Yeah. Aren’t the benches cold?”
“I don’t know. But there’s sunshine, so I’m sure it’ll be fine.”
“Is it too bright?”
“No, I don’t mind it.”
“I see. Well then.”
We sit side by side on a bench near the entrance to the park, where we can overlook the whole park.
Sometimes Senpai holds the stuffed animal in one hand while looking forward with boredom.
I was looking at the excited parents and children in front of me and was dumbfounded with my own fantasy.
I wondered if I married Senpai, would we have a happy family like that?
I wondered if she would make a good wife because she is surprisingly family oriented.
I have been thinking about such things even though we are not even in a relationship yet.
But one day, I would wake up from this dream.
Senpai swung around and said, [Where is the restroom?].
“Ah, there’s a restroom there, I think. It’s clean.”
“I see. Well, can I go for a minute?”
“Y-yes. I’ll take the stuffed animal with me.”
When she got to the clean restroom at the back of the park, Senpai gently handed me the stuffed animal.
Finally, the hand that was connected……
“Erm…..if you don’t let go of my hand, um, you have to use the restroom after all.”
“Ah, yeah. Right. Okay, wait for me.”
Senpai’s fingers slipped away.
Finally, her hand was released.
Then, when Senpai disappears into the bathroom, I look at the hand that was connected to Senpai’s hand and let out another breath.
It must have looked ridiculous to the people around me to see a high school student holding a stuffed animal in front of a restroom, waiting for someone.
People that passed by me gave me strange looks.
But that didn’t matter anymore.
My mind was already dyed with the thoughts of Senpai.
“I felt so much…….”
I was alone in the restroom, adjusting my disordered self.
I had reached my limit.
We did lovers knot, he got me a stuffed animal, and even gave me hugs.
There was no way I could be normal like this.
All I could think about was how I could push him down on the park bench.
There were so many little kids there.
No, it was the sight of them that made me want to have children soon.
Tokiwa kun is always testing me.
It would be easier to play the crane game if he let go of my hand, but he dares to play the crane game without letting go.
I don’t want to let go of his hand either, but he tests me to see if I’m too careful and won’t let go.
Even though he wouldn’t give me a hug, he says something like [Hug me as much as you want.]
He knew that I would be so happy to hear him say such things that I would never stop, so he was always mean to me.
I wondered why, because when I asked him to take a break at the hotel, he pretended not to notice and invited me to the park.
He must have wanted to show me what a family looks like and tell me that he wanted to get married soon.
If Tokiwa kun doesn’t make things clear anymore…I like him.
I love you for being so mean to me, but you definitely do only what I want.
I love you so much that I spill my feelings and everything.
I’m going to break down.
If something like this were to happen, I should have brought a change of clothes.
If I went into a hotel like this, people would probably look down on me and think I’m a lewd woman.
I wonder if he knew that and turned down my invitation to go to the hotel.
Fufu, you are such a gentleman, Tokiwa kun. You’re so nice. I love you.
He’s been waiting for me all this time, right?
I have to get out of here soon.
“I’ll give you lots of hugs when we get back.”
