“Fuu, I feel refreshed~”

Hoshimiya comes into the room, letting out a pleasant sound.

Her face was on fire after a hot bath, and her long hair was unraveling in a ponytail……

Her pink pajamas are the same as usual.

“Riku-chan.
Thank you for the clothes.”

Haruno appeared from behind Hoshimiya, wearing my jersey.

At first she was going to wear Hoshimiya’s clothes, but while they were drying on the balcony, they got wet from the rain.
So Haruno had no choice but to wear my jersey.
…Yes, there’s something goofy about it.
The hands didn’t stick out of the sleeves because they weren’t the right size, and the whole thing was dowdy.

The atmosphere was good.

“”

“Haruno, are you feeling alright?”

“Unn, I’m feeling a little lightheaded, but……I’m not that tired.”

“I see… Take it easy.”

“Unn.”

“If you feel the least bit sick, tell me right away, okay?”

“Unn.”

“Are you sure you’re okay? You’re not pushing yourself, right?”

“You’re too persistant, Riku-chan…”

I was told in dismay.

Hoshimiya, who was beside Haruno, was also twitching a bit.

“Kuromene-kun really likes Haruka-san, huh?”

“No…If you say it so clearly….I wonder.”

Unable to deny it, I scratch my head in embarrassment.

“Ah, right.
I need to call my mom…I’m sure she’s worried.”

“I called her already.
She decided to let you stay here.”

“…You’re unusually one-sided, Riku-chan.”

“I don’t mind it, but I wanted you to say something to me, the owner of the house.”

The girls condemned me.

She naturally got angry.

Even if that was the case, it seemed a little wrong to send Haruno home now.

I didn’t ask why she was here…

“I’ll stay in Chiharu-san’s room today.
You two can sleep here.”

“Is that okay?”

“Nn~, it’s fine.
I’m sure you two have a lot to talk about.
I’m not intruding, am I?”

I don’t think she’s intruding, but I really wanted to calmly talk with Haruno alone.

Hoshimiya comes up to me and tells me.

“Good luck.”

“……Eh?”

When she said those two words, she smiled a slightly meaningful……No, forced smile.

“Then, I’ll let you two be.”

With a light wave of her hand, Hoshimiya leaves the room.

The front door was opened and closed.

“……”

“……”

Left in the room, I and Haruno did not open our mouths.

We look away from each other and stare at the walls, floor, and ceiling.

“Um.
I’ll call mom as well.”

“Ah, yeah, sure.”

Haruno picks up her phone and begins a call.

From the conversation that I can hear, it seemed that Haruno’s mom was pissed off.

She repeatedly bowed her head apologetically, as if her mother was right in front of her.

“Ahahaha…She got really angry.”

Haruno, having finished the phone call, smiles bitterly.

“Of course she is.
Haruno’s mom was going to talk to the police, right?”

“Unn, I think they were on the verge of begining a search… I annoyed a lot of people.”

“……You don’t have to beat yourself up about it.”

“It’s true that I caused trouble, isn’t it?”

Well yes, that’s true.
But it’s not annoyance, it’s worry.
Everyone just cares about Haruno.

“Haruno, why were you in that place?”

“……”

I look into Haruno’s eyes and ask her directly.

“I followed the two of you……”

I knew it.
That was it.

The questions is, why was she following us?

“Why?”

“Because I was getting…very irritated when I saw Riku-chan getting along with Ayana-chan.”

“What do you mean by that?”

“At first, I didn’t know why, and I didn’t even notice that I was irritated.
But you know, I understand now.”

Saying this, Haruno closes the distance between us.

She sat down in front of me as she sat down and said these words clearly.

“”

“I….like Riku-chan.”

“Eh?”

“I don’t mean it as a childhood friend.
I like….Riku-chan as someone of the opposite sex.”
