on out of the house?”

“No, no you can’t.
Um, should I have told you that Chiharu-san was here?”

“No, not at all.
I was just a little surprised.”

In fact, I was flabbergasted.

I thought I would never see her again.

But when I thought about it, since I was staying at Hoshimiya’s house, it was inevitable that I would meet her.

“Ayana-chan told me what happened.
The runaway boy protects the gal from the stalker, right?”

“Well, that’s how it’s going to be.”

She heard the story from Hoshimiya.

But Monmon thinks I ran away.

It seems that Hoshimiya was on the same page.

“By the way, Riku-kun.”

“…What is it?”

Every time she opens her mouth, I get nervous.
She’s going to say something stupid anyway, isn’t she?

You know, something that’s got to do with the bottom line.

“Are you ready for that?”

Here it comes… As expected.

“You’re still in high school, so you need to be ready for it.”

“Huh? Chiharu-san, what are you talking about?”

“Of course, it’s——”

“I’m going to sue you one of these days, I swear.”

She immediately says that.

I can’t let my guard down at all.

“No, no, Riku-kun, this is really important.
Can you take responsibility?”

“It won’t come to that.”

“”

“Hmm? What are you two talking about? Why won’t you talk in a way so I can understand?”

“Hoshimiya….Stay as you are.”

“Eeh?”

A pure, untainted gal.

It’s not that she’s pure, it’s just that she doesn’t know much.

In addition, I’m too insensitive to that side of things.

“Ah, sorry! It’s almost time for my part-time job.
I’ll go get ready.”

Then Hoshimiya ran to the bathroom.

Seriously?

I’m alone with Monmon now.

I don’t like being at the mercy of this person when I’m with her.

“Riku-kun.
Maybe you’re not very good at dealing with me, are you?”

“I’m not very good at it.”

“I see, I see.
Then I’ll give you this as a sign of friendship.
Let’s get along, shall we?”

Monmon grinned and pulled out a book from the rectangular bag she kept at her side.

I naturally accepted the book she offered me.

Then I looked down at the cover———And instantly regretted it.

“What’s this?”

“Hehe, no need to thank me.
You can put it to good use.”

“What do you mean, ‘put it to good use’? This is an….erotic book.
With a gal as the heroine.”

The brown-haired gal is dressed in a lewd outfit and the speech bubble says, “Do you want to play…a naughty game?”

It was disgusting.

This is not a sign of friendship, but it’s on the level of starting a world war.

“I’m off then~”

Hoshimiya came into the room.
I immediately hid the erotic book in my clothes.

“Hm? What’s wrong, Kuromine-kun?”

“It’s nothing.
What’s wrong, Hoshimiya? You’ve gone into sober mode again.”

The current Hoshimiya had removed her makeup and untied her ponytail.

She also wore round glasses.

“Sober mode….A customer once told me not to dress too fancy.”

“Is that so.
It’s tough being a clerk, huh?”

“Ahaha.
But, there are a lot of nice people and it’s kind of fun.
I’m off then.”

Hoshimiya smiled cheerfully, waved lightly at us once, and headed for the door.

“You really are a good girl, Ayana-chan~”

“That’s right.”

“Are you really going to do it?”

“Go home.”

Just to be sure, I’ll say this.

I treat my superiors with respect.

The only reason I’m making such a rude remark is because the person I’m talking to is a monster.

This is the second time we’ve met, and I already know where she stands in my mind.

“Riku-kun, seriously though, please don’t make Ayana-chan feel sad.”

“…Mondo-san?”

It was not the light-heartedness she had before.

Mondo-san, who was looking straight at me, had a very serious look in her eyes.

“I know you’re going through a lot, but Ayana’s going through a lot as well.”

“Looks like it.
Part-time, stalkers…”

“That’s not what I meant.“

“”

“Eh?”

I didn’t understand what she was saying.

What else is there to say?

“Then, I’m going home, too.
Oh, and….You can’t go through Ayana’s underwear just because she’s not here, okay~”

“No, I won’t.”

In the end, Monmon was Monmon until the end.

After watching Monmon go home, I closed the front door and went back to the living room with a sigh.

I’m all alone.
What should I do now?

And what should I do with the erotic book in my hand?

“I mean, shouldn’t I have gone with Hoshimiya?”

She’s worried about a stalker, right?

Wouldn’t it be better if I stayed with her?

Well, she seemed to be in a hurry, so maybe she forgot.

In the meantime, I’ll call her.

I’ll pick her up at the end of her part-time shift.

And as I took out my phone, I received a phone call from a certain person.

“…Haruno.”

It was a call from my childhood friend.
