Time flies and it’s been 5 years….. I am already 6 years old.

I worked very hard during this time exercising and studying and tried to do my *Tueee.

….. Did you think I would say that? Actually it’s not like that! The body doesn’t want to work hard at all because the mind is pulled by the body!

That’s just reality!

But the thing I struggle with the most is “Amami Saaya”!

No matter what I do, she never opens up to me!

Even though we were only 6 years old the other day,

[Can you please stay away from me, I don’t want to be around you.]

It’s indeed hurtful!

Well, anyway, I’ve come this far and it’s my willpower now, so I was at her house today as well.

“so sorry every time, Futaba-kun.”

“No, no! I’ll definitely turn her around!”

“Haha ….. I’m sorry. She’s pretty sharp-tongued, isn’t she?”

“….. Haha★”

As expected, in front of her father, “Yes, that’s right!” I don’t have the nerve to say that.

“I’m sorry about that. …. It seems that Saaya only lets her heart go out to us, her family.”

“No problem, it’s only been five years!”

“…. Your energy is very encouraging, really.”

And so, Saaya’s father… Amami Naoya patted me on the head.

And after that, I went up to the house and came to Saaya’s room.

“Excuse mee!”

“….. You’re here again, you never give up, do you?”

“I’m not a quitter! I mean, call me by my name!”

“No one calls bugs by their first names, right? That’s what I mean.”

That’s a tough way to start the show. ….. I’m used to it!

“Hey, hey, I’m a human being.”

“To me, you’re all low-level thinking apes, so I can’t possibly see you as a person, even if you’re a child prodigy like me.”

“Hmmm, so you’re telling me that in a fair fight with me, there’s no way I’d win?”

“That’s right, I do think you have a high level of understanding. But that’s all there is to it. You’re just a poor resourceful person.”

Kuku….. I can’t say it back, at best I’m an ordinary person living a second life after reincarnation.

It’s no surprise that my potential is lower than this child who is a genius right now.

But ‘now’ is different.

“But that’s a story for the future, and maybe it will be the same for you.”

“I don’t think that’s possible. I know in an instant what I need to do to get better at everything. I’m different from you.”

Ugh~…. Seriously, I can’t say anything back.

But ….

“Well, how about a game?”

“A game? What’s the game?

“The game is blackjack, one game.”

“…. I don’t know the rules. Do you have a rule book?”

“Why don’t you just let me explain it to you?”

“I don’t trust you, you’re a complete pain in the ass, but you’ve got a good understanding of the rules, so you might be able to alter them without being caught.”

“You don’t trust me at all. ….”

Well, okay, I’ll bring the rule book now and show you.

Let’s go out there and win, shall we?

“Have you got the rules down?”

“Yeah, it’s pretty simple, you just draw a card that makes the card you have 21 or close to it, right?”

“Yes, but since I’m under curfew, I’ll make it simple this time. You have 10 seconds to decide whether or not to draw a card on your turn.”

“Okay, no problem, show me your best effort…”

“….. You will lose, Amami Saaya.”

And so the game began.

Quietly, blackjack entered its final phase.

“My cards, total 20, your cards, total 19. …. You lose.”

“…….”

(Why, why, did I lose? Because I didn’t draw another card there? No, but that guy would have definitely played 1 or 2, I don’t get it. ….)

Saaya looked like she was going to cry, and that’s probably true.

She had lost after such a big talk.

But he knew the only weak point of this girl.

“What do you think was the cause of your defeat?”

“…… It’s humiliating, but I don’t know.”

“That’s easy, you’re indecisive.”

“No, I’ve made up my mind, and I’ve done it quickly.”

“Then why didn’t you draw your cards in the last round, time ran out, and you lost to me?”

“……”

“You’re too smart to come up with different options, like you did with blackjack.”

“That’s both an advantage and a disadvantage with me.”

“Yeah…. You’re right.”

“But I don’t have that head of yours, which is why I’ll probably lose to you one day.”

(I’m sure…I think that’s right, I think I’ll be able to erase this part eventually with experience)

“That’s why.”

He said with a brilliant smile.

“I’m going to make up for what you lack. So why don’t you fill in what I lack?”

“……. Ah.”

Saaya feels her cheeks blush at the sensation of being defeated for the first time, of receiving words that resonate in her heart for the first time.

(Let’s ….believe him a little.)

She thinks this while staring at his face with a dazed look on her face.
