“Hey hey, good luck♪”

“I know. ……!”

After school, I was spending the day in a different way than usual.

I’m running frantically with my hands and feet, and behind me is Saaya, who is chasing me on her bicycle with a devilish smile on her face.

I hear her voice, which I can’t tell if she’s cheering me on or taunting me, and I give a last spurt.

(…… Why did I let this happen?)

The reason why this happened goes back to this morning.

[Hey Futaba, have you been exercising lately?]

[I haven’t been lately. ….. I haven’t joined any club activities since I became a high school student, so it’s only PE.]

[After all, that’s what it’s all about, right? I’m looking forward to seeing you after school.]

[……. hnn?]

So, we decided to run after school, and I’ve been running.

I agree with the idea of physical fitness, but the distance is just too long.

10km ……. And running as fast as you can, what a joke.

“Why don’t you try running instead of biking? You don’t get enough exercise either, do you?”

“I train regularly, in case of emergencies.”

“…… You’re doing this just to see me suffer, aren’t you?”

“Aah, you know that?”

“I hate you already. …….”

I think most people usually like to see people smiling.

But in the case of Saaya, it’s a different story.

When I am depressed or in pain, she says with a smile, “I love Futaba-kun who looks stupid and in pain!”

She’s crazy.

“Fuu….. Fu…..”

“Good job, I guess you can go faster than I thought.”

“That’s because I’m running when you’re making me. …..”

These days, being the beginning of high school, I’m not so much on the edge of being late anymore, but when I was in the second or third grade, I was often late … because of this person.

“My fault? …… What are you talking about?”

“It’s because you keep staring at my face until the very last minute!”

No, well, there are times when she woke me up, of course, in case you’re wondering. ….. But more often than not, she didn’t.

Most of the time when I do wake up, it’s usually ……

[….. Uhe?]

[Ah, Good morning.]

[Good morning. …… What time is it?]

[It’s, uh, 8:30.]

[I can’t do this anymore!!!!]

“Hahaha, you can’t do it anymore.]

[What were you doing?!!]

‘[I was looking at your face.]

[…….. Since when?]

[Since 4:00 a.m.]

That’s what she said. ….. What kind of nerve she has to stare at my face for four and a half hours.

“Was that right? I forgot.”

“Don’t forget! It’s the most important part!”


“You can’t say something like that with a smile on your face and the past won’t go away, okay?”

She tries to make it seem like it didn’t happen with a smile, but of course, that doesn’t work on me.

“Well, you were originally planning to exercise after school today, right?”

“You blatantly changed the story… Well, that’s true, but how do you know?”

“I know, because we’ve been connected by something invisible since we were kids.”

“…… In short, you can tell because we’ve known each other since we were kids?”

I’ve been wondering about this for a long time, but I don’t think you can predict the future like that just because you’ve known each other since childhood. I want that ability too.

“You could say that♪…… But seriously, I don’t really know. But I really do have a vague idea.”

“I’m jealous of you. ……”

“……. Well, maybe… maybe we had some kind of connection in a previous life.”

“eeeh, ……?”

I suppose that’s what she means. …… In other words, she’s trying to tell me that we’ve met before, though not in the same form.

But that’s impossible…because I don’t have anyone to get along with.

“Well, I’m just kidding.”

“If that’s what this is, this is gonna be interesting.”

“Really, I’d be so happy I wouldn’t be me anymore.”

“Well, it’s not going to happen, is it?”

So, I put an end to this conversation for a moment and drink the sports drink that Saaya had bought.

Uhee ……. I knew this would taste good after a workout.

As Saaya and I were chatting while taking a break, we saw a figure.


“Good afternoon!~”

“I guess it’s good evening, this time of day.”

“Ah, sure!”

The person I saw ──── Katano Rin just now was smiling and talking with my childhood friend, Saaya.

Apparently she had something to do in the vicinity.

“What are you two doing?”

“Running. Saaya forcing me to run.”

“Don’t you think he needs to fix his lack of exercise? Katano-san.”

“Yes, lack of exercise is certainly not good for you!”

They ruthlessly create a situation of two against one.

This is terrible. …… Don’t be fooled, Katano-san! Let’s become my ally and kill that demon together!

“Ah, by the way, I’ve been wondering…”

“Hmm? What is it?”

“Futaba kun, are you Saaya chan’s boyfriend?”

Such a question is suddenly asked out of the blue. ….. Something we’ve been unconsciously avoiding.

But when I tried to tell her with a blank expression, “We’re just childhood friends.”

“Ah, yeah. We’re boyfriend and girlfriend.”

“He~~ I knew it!!”


Isn’t this conversation going off the rails?


“Yes, yes, he’s a hard-working boyfriend.”

Saaya’s gaze told me not to say anything.

Apparently, I have no human rights. ……. I was thinking about how awful it was when Katano-san took the unthinkable step.

“Well then, I think I’ll run for boyfriend too~?” Mugyuuu

Katano-san suddenly hugged me……. Hnn?

My brain can’t process this.

“W-What are you doing? Get off of me!”


Perhaps it’s because something unexpected has happened to Saaya for the first time in a while, but her usual devilish expression has disappeared, and it’s clear that she’s very anxious.

“There’s nothing loving about doing that to someone you’re not even close to right!?”

“Yes there is? It’s the first l”ve at first sight I’ve ever had in my life.’

──────── Eh?

Both of us, Saaya and I, do not know what happened, not only the expression on our faces, but even our breath stops. However, Saaya was the first to regain her breath.

“L…..L… Love at first sight?”

“That’s right♪ That’s why I came here to see you today too!”

I finally regain my breath here too.

But still, love at first sight …… I never thought I’d be the target of such a thing.

I mean, didn’t she say something amazing in the second half?

“How is it? I don’t care if it’s just your second girlfriend!”

“…… E-Enough of this, get away from my Futaba-kun!!”

With that said, Saaya tried to get me back with messy movements instead of her usual sophisticated and clean ones, but it was pointless.


In contrast, she avoided Saaya with a gorgeous step.

What was that move …… You moved as if you could see the future.

“Now, I’ve got some things I need to do soon. I guess I’ll say goodbye here for today.”

“Go home!”

“Oh, here’s my contact information. Please give me a message later.”

Ignoring Saaya’s extremely dissatisfied face, she registered her contact information on my phone.

“When did you do that?!!”

“You have to have the correct contact information, right~?.”



“…… Eh?”

She definitely kissed me on the cheek and left.

(Seriously, …… I’m blushing.)

Let’s see now……

“Hey! Are you serious! Are you going to fall for Katano-san?!!!”

“……. I’m confused.”

“Mouu?! You’re making out in front of me!! Hey, me too!!”

Saaya then offers her lips to me and comes on to me.

“Saaya? Calm down! Saaya!!!”
