A small breeze that blew in abruptly slipped through the space between me and senpai. I was hit by a sensation as if it were passing through my nose, and a sense of calmness that pulled me back from dreaminess to reality at once.

The sense of reality that suddenly returned made my skin crawl.

And then I think.

–What did I say?

After hearing about my senpai’s situation, I felt a rush of emotions and felt cool about senpai’s feelings.

No, I don’t intend to forget what I said, and I don’t intend to be the guy who pretends not to remember and does nothing.

I-Isn’t that embarrassing?

Isn’t that creepy?

Senpai, you think so, don’t you?

I wasn’t thinking anything in particular at the moment of being cool. I just looked into Hinami-senpai’s straight eyes and let out my honest feelings as they came out of my mouth.

And the words that came out were, “Will you go out with me for one day?”

I wasn’t the type of person who would say something like that. No matter how much I was taken in by senpai’s story. …… What am I going to do? I’m trying to look cool, but I’ve never hung out with a girl before.

Can I escort her? Is this person, that girl I’ve heard so much about, the one I’m allowed to walk next to? Or is it the other way around? Is she the right person to walk next to me?

I’m sorry if this is a misrepresentation of the person who will go out with me in the future, but probably in my life experience, the probability of encountering a tremendous, extremely beautiful woman like Hinami-senpai is extremely low.

In that case, Senpai would be both the first and the last.

I don’t even know how to talk to girls, so it would be the first and last time that I have a friendly conversation with one.

My heart is pounding.

I was devastated by the reality that I had returned to the world, when senpai suddenly burst out and spilled a few words to me in a panic.

“……I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’m sorry if I …… was acting weird because I didn’t know what I was going to do when I …… went out with you for the day.”

It was a flat apology.

My cool appearance made me look miserable, and as expected, I made a face and ran up to her and grabbed her by the shoulders.

“I-it’s nothing like that! Anyway, let’s play!

“P-play ……? I just wanted to thank you …….”

“That’s okay! I don’t have many friends. I’m just happy to have you go with me! It’s quite difficult to go to Starbucks alone.”


“Oh, …… anyway, I’m good, so are you free this weekend?”

“Y-Yes, I think I can make it.”

“The I’m in your care!!!”

It was momentum.

I answered with a spinal reflex and just like that, the chime rang and I dashed back.

I must have looked lame as I ran without looking back at senpai I had left behind on my back.

I returned to the classroom and plopped down on my seat, feeling the curious stares of my classmates, when I heard a voice in front of me.

“Oh, you’re back. How do you feel about your first encounter?”

“Don’t be silly, it wasn’t a …… encounter.”

“It wasn’t? because you were a little red in the face.”

“That’s just because I was nervous, but that’s not it. I did it. ……”

Everyone around me swallowed hard at my words.

“What did you do?”

Naoya, who usually brings up silly examples, asks if he wanted to hear the story. Something is bothering me. Naoya, a common-sense person who doesn’t often get involved in people’s conflicts, was leaning forward, and although he knew the situation was getting serious, he couldn’t hold back.

“I asked her out on a date.”


I swallowed hard and my voice echoed in the quiet classroom.

“…… are you proud of yourself, by any chance?”

“Of course not!!!!”

“Hey, Naoya, help me out! I did it for real! I can’t cancel now! I can’t cancel the reservation!! ”

“Yes, yes, Dunno dunno. I hate it when people say things like that like they’re not proud of something~~”

“Hey, I’ve always shown you the answers to your homework questions~~ Show some mercy here, we’re best friends, aren’t we?”

“……, I told you that’s a secret.”

“Please, we’re friends!”

And with my shout, after Naoya’s exasperated sigh, the voices of my classmates belatedly drowned out the sound.


The loudness of the voice was so loud that the teacher jumped in from the next class, but from my point of view, as the initiator, I didn’t care about that.

I was depressed.

“……I knew I was a dark person.”

Worry and concern for having made a promise. And I was disgusted by my own pathetic future, where I could see that I had made a big show of myself, but I couldn’t seem to do anything about it.
