e best thing ever!

“S-Stop staring at me…it’s embarrassing…”

“Oh, is it embarrassing?”

“Y-Yeah, it is…”

“That’s even better! A flustered childhood friend wearing a white one-piece is the best!”

“G-Geez, you dummy!”

I struck a pose, to which Kazuhi grew even more flustered.
Mhm…such sweetness.
Normally, you wouldn’t be able to taste this, but…

“It doesn’t hurt once a in while, right? We’re…lovers, after all.”


“What’s wrong?”

“No, um…Lovers? Sou-chan…and I?”

“Who else is here?”

“Huh? No, but, um…Ahm….” Her face turned beet-red as she panicked.

What’s that reaction about? Now you’re even making me feel flustered.

“What…? We’re a couple, right? What’s there to be embarrassed over?”

“R-Really…? A c-couple?”

“Y-Yeah! What else would we be?!”

“Sou-chan, you…l-like me…?”


For a second, I was genuinely lost in what she was on about.
But then, the realization hit me.
I confessed to her during the night of the summer festival…But that was the Kazuhi from the future.
The one in front of me is the one who lost all her memories of everything that happened.
The Kazuhi I have not confessed to, and…Wouldn’t that make this…my first confession toward the current Kazuhi?


“S-Sou-chan?! What’s wrong?!”

“Are you kidding me?! No, wait, let me get a redo!”


That was…so messed up.
This was Kazuhi’s first confession, so I should say it more clearly!

“Kazuhi!” In a rush, I took her hand.

“Wah?! Y-Yes…?!”


But when we stood face to face like this, I felt incredibly nervous.
There’s no more sweetness left in the air, so what am I supposed to do?!

“I-I…I’ll say it properly this time.”


Why did I say that?! That only makes it harder for me!


Ah, crap.
My heart is beating so hard.
I said it so many times before, but when I realized that this was the first time I said it in front of this Kazuhi, my body felt like it began to burn up.
I took a few deep breaths to relax…which ended up being completely futile.
I really wanted to look away right now, but that would be even more pathetic, so…while cheering for myself mentally, I looked Kazuhi straight in the eyes…Aren’t I even more nervous than when I confessed the first time? A-Anyway.
I just have to say it, right?!

“I…love you, Kazuhi.”

Once they left my mouth, I realized how plain it was.
Then again, a confession doesn’t have to be extravagant.


Hearing my words, Kazuhi smiled.
It was a smile rivaling the blooming beauty of the sunflowers’ beauty.
A smile that incorporated all of summer—and the smile I loved more than anything else in this world.

“Me too.
I love you more than anybody else, Sou-chan!”


You know…I can’t.
I’m at a loss here.

“Wha…Wh-Why are you laughing?!”

In the end, I couldn’t look her directly in the eyes.
Even though it’s my favorite smile…can’t blame me for acting a bit cold! Or what, are tsunderes only cute if they’re girls?!

“Wh-Why? Because…I’m so happy…I’m smiling because I can’t believe how happy I am! Is that…bad?”

Of course not.
She’s cute.
Absolutely adorable.
My brain is melting.
I’m her victim.
Now even the inside of my brain has turned into a sunflower field.

“No, not at all! It’s so good! It’s the best! Keep smiling like that for the rest of your life, you dummy!”

My brain cells were turning to mush because of all the happiness, making me blow a fuse as a safety mechanism.
I just took Kazuhi and lifted her high into the air! There’s no meaning to this! I’m just coping, haha!

“Hahaha!” Kazuhi laughed like a child, as I twirled around on the spot.

What a lovey-dovey couple we are…If someone I knew happened to see me like this, I would probably die from the embarrassment.
But…even so…we managed to beat destiny like that, so I should be allowed to drown in excitement!

“…Hey, Sou-chan.
Are you happy right now?” Kazuhi asked, still in my arms.

“Huh? Why’d you suddenly ask that.”

“I was…just curious.
Because I want you to always be happy,” she stared me in the eyes with a serious expression.

I could see a faint glimmer of anxiety in her eyes.
But…that’s also why she was an idiot.
Also, don’t push your face so close, or I’ll give you a smooch, dangit.

“You moron.
What kind of rhetorical question is that?”

That’s right, it was truly moronic.
The answer to that question couldn’t be more obvious.
When I grinned with my teeth on full display, Kazuhi smiled, too.
And then I told her exactly how I felt.

I’m the happiest guy in the whole world!”

Because the girl who’s most important to me is smiling right now…in my arms!
