For some reason, Hoshimiya maintains her position leaning against me.

This makes it look like I am hugging Hoshimiya.


She was clutching the chest area of my uniform and turned over to hide her face.

What’s going on?

“…Um, thank you for…catching me.”

Finally, Hoshimiya pulled away, turned her head down, and in a pouty little voice, uttered her thanks.

“I think it’s time to go.”

“O, oh…”

Hoshimiya picks up the magazine she has dropped on the floor, takes it to the cashier and buys it.
…She buys it properly.
Still, something seemed off.
Her movement was awkward.

Did she hurt herself somewhere? Or…is she aware of me?

“No, of course not.“

Cut down the naive ideas with your own words.
Even if she were aware of me, it would not be a romantic feeling.
My desire made me think so…….My desire? Do I want to be liked by Hoshimiya?

“Kuromine-kun? What’s wrong?”


The look on Hoshimiya’s face when she casually asked me, was cute……It made me nervous.
I wanted to stay close to Hoshimiya with the intention of protecting the person who saved my life, but maybe I’m actually wrong.
Reflecting on the past few days, it all started when Hoshimiya saved my heart.
Since then, she has given me a carefree smile many times and even supported me in my daily life.
Hoshimiya is kind to me without any other motives.


Once I realised it, I couldn’t stop.
I might have fallen in love with Hoshimiya too.
In fact, it would be strange if I didn’t.
I thought I wanted to protect Hoshimiya as a way of repaying her kindness, but I wonder if that’s really the truth.

“Kuromine-kun, your face is bright red.”

“I, it’s nothing…Let’s go home.”


I felt embarrassed that she could see my face and urged her to go outside.
Hoshimiya tilted her head curiously, as if she thought my reaction was funny.
I think even that reaction is cute, so I might be in a serious condition now.




I was hiding behind a telephone pole, and watched.

I was staring at them in the book section of the convenience store from the outside.

“I’m frustrated……I’m so frustrated……!“

The more I said it out loud the more irritated I was.

It’s so much more than just unconsciously gnashing your teeth.


When I see them coming out of the convenience store, I quickly hide myself behind a telephone pole.

I stared at their backs as they walked down the sidewalk in a row, and slightly regained my composure.

“……Huh? Why am I so frustrated?”

Riku-chan is just being friendly with other girls.

Thinking back, I could not clear my chest from the moment I saw them in the city.

The image of Riku-chan hugging Ayana was stuck in my mind for a long time.

And now——they hugged again.


“Ah, mou! I’m so irritated!”

For some reason, I’m so angry I can’t stand it.
In any case, I’m restless.
I was irresistibly curious about their behaviour, and found myself following them.

“Riku-chan…looked so kind.
That face was only ever shown to me, and yet……!”

My cherished childhood friend is spending quality time.

That makes me very happy.

If that’s supposed to be the case, then why…?

I don’t want to see——Riku-chan now.

I don’t want Riku-chan to have fun with girls other than me.

But I can’t help but wonder what they are doing.

“I wonder where those two are going.
That’s the train station over there, right?”

Come to think of it, does Ayana go to school by train?

No way———!

“I have to check.”

Living together——That should not be the case.

I didn’t even want to think about it, so I couldn’t ask Riku-chan directly.

But I want to know about it.

I shook off the bad feeling and followed them again.
