“Senpai, I’m out of the bath.”

I took a long bath today.

Because Senpai repeatedly reminded me to take my time.

While I was soaking in the bath, I was thinking about something that had been bothering me.

Senpai and I got together.

I thought we were supposed to be together, but the way she was acting, I didn’t think she got the message.

I was nervous that she might say, [That was a joke] when I got out of the bath.

I wanted to find out, so I hurriedly opened the kitchen door.

Then, I see Senpai who was in the middle of cooking, tilting her head and looking at me.

“…….”

“W-what’s wrong?”

“Is it easier to call me [Senpai]?”

“Eh?”

Senpai turned towards me with a shocked look on her face.

And again.

“Is it easier to call me [senpai]?”

She asked again.

“E-erm. Well, somehow that’s what I was calling you.”

“Shion.”

“Eh?”

“I think it’s more comfortable to call me by name. What do you think?”

I wondered why Senpai was suddenly talking to me like that, but I soon realized what it meant.

Since Senpai said she would go out with me, I guess that means she wants to do it properly.

I’m not sure if she suddenly likes me, but she knows how I feel and is trying to get closer to me.

…Then so am I.

No, I’m the one who has to work harder.

“……Then, can I call you by your name?”

“Yeah. Can I call you by your name, too?”

“O-of course you can, Senpa…….um, Shion san.”

“Yeah, what is it, Sendai kun?”

“W-well……may I have some food?”

“Yeah, of course.”

“……”

Of course I was nervous calling her by her name for the first time, though.

More than that, I was so happy to hear my first name called by Senpai for the first time that my body started to heat up.

“A-anyway…thanks for the food. Yeah, it’s delicious.”

“It was difficult to make meat and potato stew, but is it good?”

“It’s really delicious, Senpa…Shion san. If I were to have you make such delicious food for me, I’d…I’d start liking it.”

“Yeah, I’m glad. I’ll do my best as your partner as well.”

“Partner……yeah, me too.”

Through that conversation, I finally came to a realization.

I really became a lover with Senpai.

It was not a dream.

I was puzzled by her lack of reaction because she is always so calm.

When I knew that she was seeing me as a man, too.

I’m suddenly filled with joy.

What should I do…on the contrary, I can’t speak anymore.

“……”

“What’s wrong, Sendai kun? Is it not delicious?”

“N-no. It’s very delicious.”

“Yeah, that’s good. Eat a lot.”

“……Um, why are you being so nice to me, Shion san?”

I strained my voice.

I’ve been wondering about this for a long time.

No matter how caring and close she is to my mother, why would she be so devoted to a man she doesn’t know well?

It was because of this that I fell in love with Senpai.

Why does she do so much for me?

“?”

But Senpai tilted her head in response to my question.

“Why?”

“I-I mean……I was wondering why you always cook such delicious meals for me.”

“Isn’t it normal because we are partners?”

“Well, no, it’s not that.”

Senpai said that it was natural because we are lovers, but she can’t seem to understand the intent of my question.

I’m not asking about right now, I’m asking about before that.

“You’re funny, Sendai kun. It’s normal to devote oneself to one’s lover and family, right?”

“E-erm……well, that’s true, but.”

“I’ve got a cake for you after you eat. Eat up.”

“Y-yes.”

I knew that Senpai was a bit of an airhead.

Of course, it’s because of this that someone like me was able to get close to her.

Hmm. Well, I guess it’s fine as long as Senpai is fine with it.

“Thanks for the food.”

“Yeah. I’ll prepare a cake.”

“Y-yes.”

After cleaning up the dishes, she took out two shortcakes from the refrigerator.

When she brought it to me on a plate, she sat down next to me and said, [Would you like to eat it?]

“Is this homemade, by any chance?”

“Yeah. The sponge is store-bought, but I made the cream earlier.”

“That much…can I eat it?”

“Yeah, eat it.”

The cake is so beautifully coated with cream that it is hard to believe that it is homemade.

“Ah, it’s delicious. Is this really homemade?”

“I’m glad. Yeah, today is our anniversary so I tried my best.”

“Shion san……yes, thank you.”

To be honest, I was worried until just now.

I was worried that even though she said we were dating, it was just a trial from Senpai’s point of view, or maybe she just reluctantly agreed to it because it was hard for her to say no.

 

But I could tell from the homemade cake that she was happy to go out with me.

Surprisingly, Senpai was also excited about the sudden idea of ​​making a cake…well, I guess it wasn’t all that exciting.

 

Hm? By the way, when she left the nurse’s office, didn’t she mention that there would be cake after dinner?

I’m sure it was before I confessed to her…..but no, I guess it was just a coincidence.

She was going to buy a cake and go home, but since I suddenly confessed my feelings on the way home, she must have changed it to a homemade cake to reward me for my efforts.

How kind of Senpai.

Besides, I’ve become the boyfriend of such a kind and beautiful Senpai.

From today onward, little by little, I’m going to become a person who is worthy of Senpai.

There was some confusion as the situation changed from acquaintances to lovers.

But now that she’s accepted me as her boyfriend, I have to do my best to be a good boyfriend.

I have to do my best.

Today is our anniversary, right?

It’s the anniversary of my engagement to Sendai kun.

Ehehe, he called me by my name.

And I called him by his name.

I’m going to become a Tokiwa in a little while, but it’s funny if I always call him Tokiwa kun.

But why is Sendai kun still so distant to me even though we got engaged?

Is it because he is nervous?

If that’s the case, he’s just like me.

I’m also at a loss as to how I should change from a lover to a wife.

After all, Sendai kun asked me to get married.

I have to do my best, right?
