Shimizu urged me and Hinata, who had been standing in front of the round table, to sit down in the chairs.

I didn’t realize that Shimizu was a girl who wears mine-type clothes. …… Is this a trick of God or a trap of the devil?

“Kazakiri san, you’re going to join our travel circle, aren’t you?”

“Y-yes. ……I’m in your care”

“I’m so happy. To be able to travel with Kazakiri-san again.”


“I may have told you before, but Shimizu and I were in the same group on a school trip in high school.”


Shimizu suddenly burst into laughter while I was talking to Hinata.

“That school trip was a very good memory for me,…….”

Shimizu looked up at the ceiling with a distant look of nostalgia.

Do you have such a great memory?

In high school, Shimizu and I were in different classes, but we both wanted to go on a school trip to Kyoto, and we happened to be together when we were divided into groups.

As a former shady nerd, I was more dazzled by the young lady and popular girl, Shimizu Kannako, than anyone else, and I was so nervous the whole time we were in the group that I rather didn’t enjoy the school trip.

“Do you remember, Kazakiri-san? When I dropped Kuroko-chan’s strap during the school trip?”

Kuroko-chan’s, strap ……?

Kuroko-chan is the mascot character of the amusement park “Piruloland,” which boasts popularity among a wide range of women, from girls to office workers, and is a black cat-shaped character with a slightly mean-looking face.

I do remember that Shimizu lost something on a school trip and I had to look for it, but …… it wasn’t that impressive.

“When I dropped Kuroko-chan’s strap on the school trip, the people in my group wouldn’t listen to me, saying, ‘It’s only a strap’, but Kazakiri-san was kind to me when I was on the verge of tears and he searched with me.”

“Hyuu~ Kazakiri~!”

“D-Don’t make fun of me.”

I gradually began to remember.

As I recall, Shimizu lost something that time, but the other members of the team didn’t listen to her,…….

I couldn’t bear to look at it any longer, so I told the other members of the group that I had lost something too, and Shimizu and I went back the way we came, looking for the strap.

It wasn’t that impressive from my point of view because it was found so quickly. ……

I mean, was it foreshadowing now when she was carrying the strap of Kuroko-chan, the landmine girls’ go-to girl?

“There was a girl who didn’t like me in the center of the group on the school trip, so I was being shunned…… that’s why I was really happy that Kazakiri-san said ‘I lost something too’ and looked for the strap for me…. … Kazakiri-san’s ‘kind lie’ saved my life.”

Eh? …… Shimizu was shunned?

Well, there might have been some anti-shimizu people in the popular Shimizu, but I, a shady boy who didn’t care much about the Cheerfuls, had no way of knowing it.

If you ask me, I can understand that when Shimizu lost something, people around her were very cold.

“But Shimizu chan, you haven’t talked to Kazakiri since the school trip, right? Why?”

“T-that’s ……”

Shimizu looked at me and raised the corner of her mouth.

“I was a little bit embarrassed.”


Maybe It’s simply because you don’t want to talk to a shady person like me. ……?

Back then I was a creepy geek who skipped haircuts, had shaggy hair, and did nothing but talk otaku and play social games in the classroom. ……

“Hmmm …… I see.”

Hinata suddenly got up from her seat with her bag in her hand.

“I’m going to go get a drink, so I’ll be out of the seat for a bit.”

Saying that and winking, Hinata walked toward the vending machine in the cafeteria.

Hey, hey, hey. Don’t leave me alone with Shimizu, Hinata …….

I quietly turn my attention to Shimizu.

The clothes are all black and landmine.

The makeup is also what is commonly referred to as sickly makeup, and the pink-rimmed eyes give off a sick feeling,…….

“Are you staring at me again, or something wrong?”

“No, no, no, I mean, um…”

Bad ……I’m still a bit nervous in front of my high school classmates.

Here, let’s talk …… about something…Ah yeah

“I heard that Shimizu told Hinata about my lime account, and I’m wondering if you were still in the school trip group?”

“If you say so, then you’re the one who’s in the group.”

“B-because it’s kind of hard to leave a group like that, or something like that! of course, it may be that you have to leave because you’re done with it, but if you do, it will show up in the group chat!”

“Fufu, Kazakiri-san, you are quite concerned about many things, aren’t you?”

Of course! A shady person basically doesn’t like to be noticed!

But this made me seem even more shady. ……

“Well, I didn’t leave, which means I’m the same way.”

Shimizu suddenly dropped half of her eyelids and muttered with a moist look on her face.

Somehow, it’s suddenly moist from a while ago,…….

Shimizu, unlike Sakimiya, is more “sickly” on the inside than on the outside. 

The fact that Shimizu, who looks like a young lady, is wearing a landmine dress in the first place suggests that she must have been going through a lot of trouble.

“……Kazakiri-san, may I ask you a question?”

“Yeah, no problem.”

“Well, let me ask you a more in-depth question.”

I-In-depth question?

W-what is it…..?

“Are you in a relationship right now?”

“Hee ……?”
