“Ah, I’m tired. It’s noisy after all with my mother and father around.”

“Yeah. But they both seemed to be having fun.

“That’s because Shion is here. Especially my mother, she really likes Shion.”

“Is that so? Not because I’m Sendai kun’s girlfriend?”

“Even if you weren’t, I think my mother probably would have gotten along well with you as well. Besides, she always said that she had a good eye for people.”


Yesterday was a very busy day.

First of all, as soon as my mother came home, she took Shion to go shopping.

My father asked me how my life as a newlywed was going, and all sorts of questions about my recent life.

After my parents came back, we had a party looking at the pictures from the wedding.

After that, they took us out for yakiniku.

I was impressed that my mother, who until recently had felt more like a friend than a parent, acted like a parent, saying, [Make sure you eat well.]

If anything, I was a little restless.

The next day, early in the morning, my parents hurriedly left for their new jobs.

“I guess it’ll be just the two of us again for a while.”

“I was a little nervous, but I was still happy to see my mother-in-law once in a while. I might want to move in with you all soon.”

“Is that so? I’d rather be alone with Shion.”

“Fufu, me too. But family is really nice.”

“Yeah. Are yours still the same, Shion? I thought so when I went to greet them before, but Shion’s family is very conservative, isn’t it?”

“Basically, they don’t care. But now I think that maybe my parents looked at me and tried not to expect anything from me.”

“What do you mean?”

“I’ve always had no friends, and no matter what I did, it didn’t last, and in the end, I just didn’t like people and shut myself away. I had a tendency to not go to school until junior high. I managed to go to high school, but my parents must have had a hard time seeing me like that.”

“Then, from now on, let’s show them that you have changed. Then they might react a little differently.”

“Yeah, but I still like it here for now. If I don’t have to go back, I won’t go back.”

“Haha, me too. But in the end, family is important. Let’s go back to Shion’s house together once in a while.”

“Yeah. You’re so kind, Sendai kun.”

Even though it was Sunday today, I got up early to see off my parents who were leaving early in the morning, so I woke up early even though it was still dark outside.

There are no shows to watch in the morning and nothing in particular to do, so I was wondering what to do, when  Shion asked me if I wanted to go out for a walk.

“I like it. It’s colder in the morning, so let’s go for a walk to the sea.”

“Yeah. But I don’t think we should go to the back of the station. There are too many scary people there.”

“Shion got tangled up that time, too. Was that a coincidence too?”

“Fufu, it’s not a coincidence. I actually saw Sendai kun going out and followed him. I thought I’d say hello.”

“Oh, I see. So you came all the way out here to see me.”

“……You don’t think I’m a stalker or something?”

“Ahaha, I’m glad you like me that much. But there is a fine line between stalking and ambushing, isn’t there? It depends on what the other person thinks.”

“I see. Yeah, you’re right. I’m glad that Sendai kun is a kind person.

Now that I think about it, I often bumped into Shion by chance, but maybe it was because she was waiting for me in advance.

I don’t think that’s scary or weird.

It makes me happy to think that she was thinking about me that much.

Of course, if someone other than Shion had done the same thing to me, I might have been afraid.

Sexual harassment, whatever it is, is the same thing.

It’s not what is done to you. It depends on who does it to you.

I can accept love from Shion, no matter how heavy it is.

Because I love her too.

“Kaneko told me. I think we’re more compatible than I thought.”

“I think so. If it wasn’t for Sendai kun, I wouldn’t have made it.”

“Yeah. But it’s like fate and it’s wonderful. I don’t like it if it’s not Shion.”

“Sendai kun……I love you.”

We hold hands and leave the house.

The cold morning breeze cooled our flushed bodies, but her hands remained warm.


As we head out to the ocean together, the wind starts to pick up a little.

We soon see the ocean.

“It feels so good. Hey, do you want to walk on the beach with me again?”

“Yeah. But I don’t care about  this place’s jinx anymore. My wish came true.”

“I see. Yeah, me too. But I want to walk here with you as many times as I want. With Shion, together.”

“Me too. I want to ride the train together every day, be saved by Sendai kun, go to school together, and ride the train again. I want to spend every day like that.”

“I’m sure that’s the way it will be. But I don’t know if I can help you every day. If you keep giving me trouble all the time, I’ll get anxious.”

“Fufu, you’re right. But when I’m in trouble, you’ll help me, right?”

“Of course I will. Of course, I’ll come to you right away.”

“Well, I’ll be by your side the whole time, so there’s no need to rush over.”

“Haham right. Then, don’t ever let go of my hand.”


While I was looking at the clear blue sea, the sun was slowly rising from the mountains.

The sun was slowly rising from the mountains and the area was gradually getting brighter and brighter.

Then she leaned against me.

“Sendai kun. Am I heavy?”

“No, not at all. You’re light.”

“……That’s not what I meant.”

“I know. In fact, my body and mind are so light that I feel light.”

“……Yeah. I love you, Sendai kun.”

“I love you too, Shion.”

I squeezed her hand tightly and squinted at the morning sun.

Then, when I looked to the side, I saw Shion smiling.

I was dazzled by her smile, and I squinted at her again.
