balance by grabbing his shoulders.
Her body, which was leaning forwards quite a bit, lowered slowly until she could kneel.
She took a look at Maru’s smiling face once, her hands that were on his shoulders once, and his hands that were around her waist once.
“Y-y-you…” “You’re light.
You need to gain more weight.” She felt Maru tighten his grip around her waist.
What was he going to do? Right then, Maru lay down on his back.
“Woaaah!” Her body was lifted up into the air, similar to the airplanes that her dad used to give her on in her childhood.
She quickly put more strength into her hands on Maru’s shoulder to not fall forward.
“Normally I’d hold you up with my feet too, but I don’t think that’s really proper.” “Hey!” “This is kind of tiring, actually.” “Ughh!” She used one of her hands to twist Maru’s cheeks.
Maru immediately said “ouch” very quietly as he loosened his grip on her.
Thanks to their antics, they were closer than ever before.
She couldn’t even open her mouth, Maru’s smiling face was right in front of her.
She wanted to ask him what he was doing, but she was pretty sure her mouth still reeked of dinner.
She couldn’t do anything here.
So… Bang.
She headbutt him, but this brought about an unexpected result.
Instead of pushing her away, he hugged her tightly.
Their chests met together and their cheeks touched together briefly.
She could see the wooden floor in front of her, she could see the side of Maru’s face right next to hers as well.
She could hear his entire body.
His heartbeat, his breathing, and even his eyes closing, to an extent.
“Let’s… let’s just stay here like this for a bit.” Maru was being up front.
He wasn’t asking her to stay like this, not that he was giving her a choice to begin with.
What should she do here? Should she get angry or should she just ask what he was doing? In the end, she opted for a pat on his head.
Maru seemed very anxious today, everything from the way he spoke and the way he was acting just screamed anxiety.
It felt like he was struggling hard with a problem.
Looking at that made her feel very sorry for him, she just wanted to hug him for a bit.
She didn’t know why she felt this way, but she just did.
Why did it feel like she’d been comforted the same way by this person at some day she couldn’t remember? “Han Maru.” “Yeah?” “There’s a movie that I really like.” “Which one?” “Dead Poets Society.” “Oh captain, my captain.” She let out a small laugh, it was funny watching him say the line a bit seriously.
She could feel the breath that Maru was letting out pass by her ear like a breeze.
“I really like the word carpe diem.” “Carpe diem, huh.” “I don’t know what you’re worried about.
I can tell it’s no simple matter, though.
But… if you waste away today just worrying about the future that’s yet to pass, I think you’ll regret it.” She was able to talk about whatever that was in her heart when she was with Maru.
She closed her mouth and slowly raised her body from Maru’s, the boy was looking at her from the floor.
“Do you know why I like you?” She tilted her head at the sudden question.
“Why?” “Because you can read me.
You can read me oddly well.” Maru slowly raised his hands around her neck.
By the time she felt the warmth around her neck, her head slowly lowered.
Maru was pulling her towards him.
The distance between their lips were closing in.
She gave up on resisting, looking at his smiling face.
No, maybe Maru was just too strong for her.
Her long hair draped all over Maru’s face.
Just like reaching for a little spring amidst a forest of vines, she carefully reached for Maru’s lips.
And… Beep beep beep.
The apartment door opened.
“…Wowee.” Bada made a small noise in surprise.
She wanted to cry.
No, she kind of wanted to pass out.

* * * “Hah…” “Don’t worry.
I’ll talk to Bada.” “What are you going to say?” “That we’re going to get married.” “…Oh my god.
You’re crazy.
I’m crazy.” She got on the bus exhausted, Maru waved his hand towards her energetically.
He couldn’t feel more refreshed than this.
Though… she did look pretty tired right now.
The moment he came back inside, Bada started questioning him about all sorts of things.
He knew kids these days were pretty fast with stuff, but he didn’t know Bada was this knowledgeable about romance.
None of his excuses worked, and in the end, the girl even cheered him on.
“I’ll keep it a secret from mom.
Since I owe you a lot.” “Oh, thank you so much.” “Ahh, I want a boyfriend too.” “You can date all you want in college.” “Said the high schooler.” “…..” He didn’t have a response for that.
“Ah, right, bro.” “Yeah?” “You know that older brother from before?” “Who?” “The one with the flying kick.” “Dowook?” “Yeah!” She didn’t look normal.
Before she could say anything more, Maru bolted for his room.
He locked the door as soon as he got inside.
“Hey! Han Maru!” She was shouting outside, Maru put his hands over his ears.
This didn’t feel good.
Dowook was handsome and he did save his sister once.
Bada hated boredom and loved trying new things.
Knowing that… he didn’t even want to think about it.
“Hey!” Her normal personality was starting to come out.
The moment things started to go badly for her, she changed immediately from ‘bro’ to ‘hey’.
Maru wanted to put his foot down as an older brother, but he just didn’t want to talk to her today.
“Date in college!” “What about you?!” “Fine, I’m an asshole! Go away!” “You don’t even know what I was trying to say!” Maru ignored his sister as she twisted the doorknob and threw his body into the blanket.
He’ll go to school at dawn tomorrow for sure.
