Monday was supposed to be a sunny day, with all my doubts and fears gone. The sky was gloomy as if it reflected my feelings.
“It doesn’t look like it’s going to rain until we get home.”
Said Yua, who was leaving school with me.
“I guess it’s because of my good behavior.
“I’m having a really hard time when you’re not saying anything.”
“Eh? I’m sorry, I’ve been in a daze. What?”
“It’s hard for me to say again what I said once before……”
Yua coughs to regain her composure.
“I said that the weather is going to hold up because of my good behavior.”
“Ah, okay. Right. Thank you for your hard work.”
“It’s painful if you agree to it….!”
It’s not ‘Intending to persuade someone and instead being persuaded oneself’, but even I have become suspicious because I’m worried about Yua’s strange behavior.
It’s as if we’re both trying to make the trip home as pleasant as usual, and we’re both feeling uncomfortable as if we’re somehow trying to cover it up. I never thought I would have such feelings for Yua until now.
For the first time, there was an awkward silence.
When I was desperately searching for something to talk about, an oddly slow car passed right next to me and stopped right ahead.
Yua also stopped.
“Not that !”
Yua was flustered, her hands flapping like a bon festival and panicked.
“Seita kun, over there !”
She pointed to the road we had just come from.
“Run that way !”
“Just run anyway !”
“Eh, I don’t want to, I’m tired…….”
“You spoiled brat !”
The voice came from up ahead. I looked over and saw a woman in a beige shirt standing next to the car that had just stopped.
She had a dignified appearance, as if she were a model. I have often seen her face and heard her name recently.
Her name was Miyazawa Azuki. She was Yua’s mother.
Yua looked up to the sky and groaned. The reason she tried to get rid of me was because she didn’t want me to see her mother.
“What are you doing, Yua ! Come on, get in ! It’s going to rain !”
She came to pick up her daughter when she saw that the weather was about to turn.
–Or rather, her voice is so loud……!
With a voice like that, it’ll be more fitting to call her “Big sister” rather than “Former idol who’s now a mother”.
(TL/N: Not the actual big sister, but ‘big sister’ in a certain context, like if you watched Yakuza films, you might know what it means.)
“You too !”
She beckoned me over.
She’s a kind person to let a man she doesn’t even know and who’s just been walking next to her daughter, get into the car without asking any questions. Not only in appearance, but also in behavior, she is a “Big sister” in the sense. Perhaps it’s because of this spirit that she has succeeded as a business owner.
“I wonder if it’s okay.”
I looked at Yua’s face.
“If Seita kun is not troubled by it, I’d like you to take a ride…… You don’t want to?”
“No, I don’t mean to be a nuisance. It’s rather helpful.”
She let out a sigh of relief.
It seems like I should be the one who asks rather than Yua.
–She sounds like Yua from before….
“Here ! Get in the car! “
My thoughts were interrupted by the voice of Yua’s mother.
“Come on, Seita kun.”
Yua urged me to get into the car.
–Ah～ it smells so good………
If anything, I had an impression that inside the typical car. There’s an unpleasant smell of mold from the air conditioner or sweat and sebum soaked into the seats, but the inside of this car smells fresh and clean, like a forest. Perhaps this beautiful mother and daughter are emitting negative ions or something.
“So, are you Yua’s boyfriend?”
Yua’s mother speaks to me through the rearview mirror.
Yua, who sat next to me, shouted in protest before I could.
“Izuma Seita kun. A senior who’s always taken good care of me.”
“Hmm. I think it’s fine by me, you seem to be very kind. Why don’t you go out with her?”
–She seems kind …….
My heart moved. To be praised by such beautiful person is special.
“How about you? Yua, she’s cute, right?”
“Eh !? Yes, well….”
I glanced to the side and saw Yua blushing and looking down.
“See ! She’s cute !”
“I can hear you….”
“Yua doesn’t hate you either, that’s why you were going home together, right?”
“Don’t worry. If it’s a boy that Yua approves of, there’s no doubt about it. Unlike me, she has good eyes to see things.”
And she laughed.
I guess you could say she has a straightforward personality. I think she’s a very nice person who has strong pressure but is very bright.
That’s what I thought……
I decided to ask Yua’s mother to find out what’s wrong.
