Kirisaki san.

From Her mother has passed away and his father is a single parent.
her brother is two-timing

The personal story began with two bombshells.

The second was Kitajimasan.

“Y-Yes, let’s see. Unlike Kirisaki san, I have a very normal family.”

Her personal story was indeed normal.

“We are a family of three: my father, mother, and I. . My father works as a system engineer and my mother is a housewife. My mother makes lunch boxes every day for my father, whose work requires him to eat irregularly. This is evidence that the couple gets along well. Maybe they have never had anything that pissed them off.”

Kitajima san looked at Kirisaki san and laughed mischievously.
Kirisaki san saw it and laughed too.

I’m glad to hear that. I think the atmosphere is getting better.

“I lived in this neighborhood until the fifth grade of elementary school, but I moved and ended up where I am now. I chose this Kaiho High School because I wanted to meet Kirito kun, who had moved away from me after the move. I wanted to see Kirito kun, whom I have lost touch with since we moved away.”
“……Heee, you say that.”

Rinne glares at Kitajima san.
She continues her story without regard to such stares.

“I never thought we would go to the same high school, be in the same class, and even sit next to each other. I feel like we are destined to be together.”

When I said this, Kitajima san winked at me.

“That’s a fate that’s as good as a childhood friend from kindergarten.”

As she said this, Rinne took a bite out of her.

“Me and Kirito aren’t just childhood friends.”


Kitajima san with a question mark. I didn’t understand well either.

I-I confessed to her that I wanted to get out of that kind of relationship.

“Kirito and I are family. We are not just childhood friends.”

Rinne had said those words earlier as well.


What on earth do you mean by that?

“Well, I don’t think you can understand. I’m not a match for a girl who just happens to be in the same class as him and sit next to him”
“……Heee so you say.”

A flash of inspiration. The air was filled with the same atmosphere as in the classroom.

“Yes, yes. That’s enough!

Kirisaki san said as she picked up a french fry.

“We’re in a store, right? We came here to deepen our friendship, not to fight. Not to get into a fight.”

Shaking the plastic pinch, she calls attention to it.

“……Haaa yeah, I know. I wasn’t very mature either. I’m sorry, Kitajima san. I apologize.”

It’s rare to see that …… that Rinne apologizes.

“No, I also lost my temper. I’m sorry”

After apologizing to each other, I was given the white feather.

“Now, it’s Sakurai kun who’s going to tell us a wonderful personal story that will change this atmosphere, isn’t it?”

Kirisaki san said, smiling at me.

“Haha, it’s not that funny,”

After saying that, I started talking about myself.

“Well, Rinne said I was family, and well, I am, I guess you could say that.

Rinne sniffed in satisfaction at my words.

“Rinne’s family moved here when she was in kindergarten, and they moved into the house next door at the same time in the same house that was built and sold. We’ve known each other since then.”

“My parents and Rinne’s parents both love the outdoors, and we used to go camping together during summer vacation when we were little. I don’t want to tell you because she might not like it, but I have a lot of embarrassing stories to tell you.”
“Kirito-……, if you want to save your life, you’ll have to keep your mouth shut, won’t you?”

Rinne stares at me with a gaze that could kill a person.
Haha …… I won’t say it.
I’m not going to tell them because I want this to be ‘a precious memory just between you and me’.

“The funny thing is that the albums in my house and Rinne’s house contain the exact same pictures. Well, that kind of thing stopped when we both went to junior high school. My parents have become a little busier with work. I guess that’s the main reason.”
“What do your parents do for a living?”

I answer Kitajima san’s question with a smile.

“My father is a writer, of light novels. My mother is an editor. Come to think of it, it’s not hard to imagine how they met.”
“He was a light novelist!? Well, may I ask what titles he writes!”

I know she’s going to ask me.

“well, you know. It’s not a very good title. ……”

And I slur my words a little.
From the look on my face, Kitajima san seemed to have guessed in a different way.

“I’m not sure if it’s a “Narou” type title, but I read a lot, so you don’t mind. Do you?”
(Narou is basically the WN type)

Aah, that’s not it.

Rinne sees my attitude and opens her mouth.

“I don’t care if I’m your mistress.”

Rinne’s words bring a question mark to Kitajima san’s mind.

“It’s the title of a light novel that Kirito’s father is writing. It’s a joke of a title, isn’t it?”

Rinne says, and then spreads her hands out.

“I’m not sure how many volumes are out now. How many volumes are out now? Four volumes?”
“Four volumes now. The fifth volume is scheduled to come out next. he is expecting a manga adaptation in six months.”

I smiled bitterly as I said that.

“I guess it’s a little out of the ordinary with the romantic comedies you like, Kitajima san.”
“I agree. I’ve seen or heard of that title, however. I’ve never read it, but it’s the kind of work that would be stacked flat in the light novel section.”

As we were having this conversation, Kirisaki san interrupted.

“Hey, Sakurai kun. Don’t ever tell Shiori-san about the light novel your father is writing, okay?”
“Shiori-san …… Oh, you mean Kurose-senpai?”

“What? I don’t know why. I don’t think we have a particular opportunity to talk about it.”
“I know that’s the light novel she like to read so much, Shiori san. I don’t know what would happen if she knew your father wrote it.”

I didn’t know there were fans this close to me. ……
I mean, it’s so unexpected that that insanely beautiful senior reads light novels.

“Yes, I understand. I’ll shut up. Well, I don’t think I have anything to say, but I’ll shut up.”

And when I said that, I suggest.

“I’m sure you’ll get bored just talking like this. I think you’ll get bored just talking like this, so why don’t we go play a little at the arcade next door?

Kirisaki san took to those words.

“Oh! That’s nice. I haven’t been to an arcade much.”
“I see. Is there a reason?”

When I asked her, she gave me a reason that was unexpected for her.

“I’m not allowed to go out by myself. Onii is overprotective. He told me not to go there even with just my girlfriends. He said there are ‘strange men’ there.”
“I’m not too …… familiar with the place, it’s my first time.”

Kitajima san somehow said that she had never been to such a place before.

“Well, let’s all go together. It’s not such a dangerous place, and if anything should happen, I’ll be there as a man, so we’ll be fine.”

I smiled

“I see. Kirito is big and has a muscular body, so his appearance is intimidating, not to mention his substance.”
“I’m counting on you, Sakurai kun, in case something happens to me.
“If Sakurai kun will protect me, I feel safe.”

…..Ouch, that’s a lot of responsibility.

As I picked up the leftover fries and ate them, I thought about how I’d been to this arcade so many times before and yet I’d never been so nervous about going there.
