Episode 3 – Tahara Rin



There was a sudden visit from Shinju, but it had always been like that, so there was little surprise that she suddenly came home.

“Shinju, you didn’t bring back the bank book and money.”

It’s my fault about this, but since I said, ‘Bring it back,’ I thought you’d bring it back yourself…

“Well, it’s Shinju…she’ll be back soon anyway.”

I decide to let her take it home the next time I see her, and get ready to go outside.

Today’s breakfast is two rice balls that I bought at the convenience store yesterday.

They were salt and salmon.

“Yes, rice from a convenience store tastes good,”

Just because my father is the president of a company does not mean that I have been eating extremely expensive food. Of course, I go to the convenience store, and I even prefer the food at the convenience store because the quality of the food at the convenience store these days is so good.

“Okay, for now, I need to get some Tau Waaku at the convenience store…” (I don’t know what is Tau Waaku タウ◯ワーク is)

And I leave the house for the convenience store I went to yesterday.

This time, I remember to lock the door.


“Oh, good morning. Ren-kun.”

“Ah, good morning. You’re up early, Ruri san.”

“Where are you going now, Ren-kun?”

“I’m going to the convenience store to pick up some Tau waaku”

“Oh, I see. I just had to go to the convenience store too.”

I feel like I’m being interrupted, but that’s okay.

“That’s right. Would you like to go with me?”

“Yes, I’d like to.”

I wondered if there was any point in going with her, even though it was only about three minutes away from my apartment, but I agreed because I thought it was important to get to know my neighbors.

“……… Um, what was your relationship with the woman this morning…?”

“This morning…ah, it was loud, wasn’t it? I’m sorry.”

“No, it wasn’t noisy, but I was just wondering what kind of relationship you had…”

Is it really possible to call her my ex-fiancee, childhood friend…no, no, acquaintance…this is also different,

A friend…

“She is my friend.”

“So you don’t mean she’s your girlfriend!”

“Girlfriend? I’ve never had a girlfriend.”

I’ve had a fiancee, though…

It’s only a three-minute walk, so it won’t take long to get there.

“Then I’ll be going now…”

“Eh! ?”


“N-no, it’s nothing.”

Suddenly, ‘Eeh!’ What a thing to say, I thought something was wrong, but if there’s nothing going on, there’s nothing to worry about. Rather than that, Tau waaku

I found the Tau waaku I was looking for right away, and I felt bad leaving the convenience store with just that, so I decided to buy today’s lunch and a drink, so I took an egg sandwich and barley tea and went to the cashier.


The cashier was a woman, frankly pretty, but she had dark circles under her eyes and looked tired.

“The total is 452 yen.”

I give her exactly 452 yen.

“I’ll take it. Hnn, Are you looking for a part-time job?”

“Eh!? Yes, well, yes.”

“Well, why don’t you work at this convenience store? We’re short on staff right now.”

“Eh! Are you sure? You’re just going to decide something like that?

“Manager! This person wants a part-time job.”

“Eh? Is that true? Tahara san!”

I guessed that they were really short of staff when I saw the reaction of the person I assumed to be the manager who came out from the back of the convenience store.

“You want to work here?

“Eh!? Yes, well, yes.”

“………It’s not good to hire someone without an interview, so I’m going to have to do one, even if it’s just a formality.”

“I haven’t written my resume or anything yet.”

“I see. Do you live nearby?”

“Yes, I am.”

“Then, will you let me know next time you come back”

“Ah! Manager, I’ll exchange contact information with you.”

“Eh! Yes.”

I took out my phone and exchanged LINE.

On the screen was the name Tahara Rin.

“Are you Tahara Rin san?”

“Yes, I’m Tahara from Tahara Mekkun House and Rin in hiragana, nice to meet you.”

“My name is Takiyama Ren. Please take care of me.”

“Well, I’ll let you know when your schedule is fixed.”

“Oh, um! You have dark circles in your eyes. You should get some rest. I’ll buy this and give it to you as is. Please take it. Now if you’ll excuse me.”

I was really curious, so I gave her a sleep-support drink and left the convenience store.


Rin’s face was redder than the manager had ever seen it before.

Meanwhile, in the rear of the convenience store…

“She exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, she exchanged contact information with Ren kun, I don’t even have a exchange contact information with Ren kun yet!”

The manager took care of Ruri’s bill.
