Her appearance was so beautiful that she could be described as a mature angel, or even a goddess.
The somewhat childish looking Hinami-senpai was now looking like a respectable senpai, and I honestly wondered where the girl I had physically rescued had gone.
She was wearing a white one-piece dress and a denim jacket. A small handbag in her hand. She was wearing a straw hat on her head and chilly sandals on her shoes, the very ideal summer girl look.
It was still April. She was a bit different from the others in chilly Sapporo, which combined with the fact that she was wearing a straw hat on her head and chilly sandals on her shoes, she was the ideal summer girl.
However, the person in question, who paid no attention to such stares, stared at me in amazement.
“—Why are you apologizing to me? It’s not time yet.”
I was the one who had done the most foolish thing of all, apologizing right from the start, and Hinami-senpai was the one who questioned me, as if it were natural.
I had already forgotten that Karasume san had told me that I should apologize lightly and pull away from the situation.
“Oh, umm… Well, I made you wait. …… sorry. Even though I’m the one who started it.”
“…. there’s no need to apologize when it’s not your time. I’m just early. 10 minutes ago is plenty of time.”
“Well, I’m glad to hear that, but I was a little nervous …… when you said you had been waiting for me earlier.”
I was so pathetic that I was scratching my head and muttering without making eye contact, but she put her hand over her mouth and said, “Ha”
“D-Did I say that?! I-I’m sorry…”
I was so surprised by her sudden action that I touched her shoulder to make her stop.
“Please don’t apologize! I was just wondering if I had done something wrong,……, or rather…
It’s true I made you wait……”
When I say so, Hinami-senpai’s cheeks blush a little and she says
“N-no. It’s really a habit…I have a younger brother. My younger brother is a really caring kid.”
“No really, I’m fine, so don’t worry about it…….Eh, you have a younger brother?”
I glanced over at the words that just blurted out for a moment. No, it’s more like a mouth than an eye.
More than that, does this person have a younger brother?
“Um…didn’t you hear ……?”
“W-well. I thought you were an only child,…….”
When I muttered to myself, her eyes, which had been flat until just now, returned to their usual state.
Or rather, she glared at me with a scowl.
As expected, the sharpness caused a jolt of electricity to run through my back.
“Um, …… just to be clear, do you mean that in a bad way?”
The usual cold eyes.
Ah, this one is definitely hard to approach after all. I just happen to be close. This is someone you should never make angry.
“No, no,! I don’t mean that at all! It’s just that you are always seemed so calm, or rather, so quiet, that I thought you were…..”
“I see. meant that way.”
There’s no way I can say that I don’t feel like she’s going to be able to take care of her little brother …….
I’m sorry, Hinami-senpai. I am a horrible man.
“But I get told that a lot. Are you an only child? like that. Why is that..Personally, I’m quite fond of my younger brother, you know? ”
“Well,……, maybe it’s because you’re a little hard to get close to.”
Catching on to that one word, her expression hardened.
“May I ask you something?”
“Yes, you may.”
“Do I give off a …… difficult-to-engage vibe?”
Hinami-senpai, who turns her pure eyes on me and asks with a bit of concern.
The answer, of course, is “yes,” but I honestly didn’t know how to answer.
“I-I guess…if anything……”
“….it is right. I don’t really know what to do in public, so I’ve been kind of blunt with them. What’s wrong with that?”
“Y-You can’t read the emotions from their facial expressions. I think it’s the fact that your eyes are always fixed on the subject. As someone who didn’t know about the existence of senpai, I thought so, too.”
“……I’m a little shocked.”
I actually want to talk to her, but she’s acting like that.
I understand how you feel a lot too.
I felt a little closer to her, and I was able to get in front of her.
“Have you always been like that?”
“It’s not that I can’t be honest, it’s just that I can’t smile naturally. I’ve always been like this.”
“……It seems like it would be difficult to fix.”
“I want to fix it.”
When I noticed that she turned her head and let her true feelings slip out, she shut her mouth and patted me on the shoulder and said
“Wait, I didn’t come here today to ask for your advice! Ah mouu what am I ……”
It’s too late…
I don’t think I could leave it as is, but I couldn’t make any negative assumptions about those pure words
“So where shall we go?”
I suddenly think.
I think I may have misunderstood something.
Instead of dressing up and having fun, I thought it would be better to go and play with her wherever she wanted to go. That’s what I thought.
If it’s been that way since childhood, there must be a reason, but it’s not something I can get into.
If that is the case, I would like her to enjoy herself, even if only a little, for now.
“Senpai, have you ever been to an arcade?”
“Game arcade? I’ve heard of it, but I’ve never been there…….”
“I knew it. You don’t know anything about it.”
“Are you making fun of me?”
“No, not at all.”
When I smiled maliciously, Himami-senpai frowned.
