Chapter 16 – Why are you here?

After dropping off Miyuki to the university, 30 minutes later, we returned home to get ready and then headed to the nearby local supermarket.

We pulled the shopping cart with the basket on it and discussed today’s menu.

“By the way, do you know if there is anything Miyuki-chan likes?”

“Favorites? Yeah, that girl has quite a masculine side to her when it comes to eating.”

“I didn’t think so? She is about the same height as mine, and she looked very cute like a small animal, but deep down Miyuki-chan is…”

“Ahaha … well, that’s just on the surface.
The inside is another story.”

“Isn’t that a good thing? The gap moe is effective for anyone even if it’s a guy!”

Honestly, I don’t really understand.”

“Maybe if we were siblings.
But if I were a boy, I would definitely fall in love! Well, I can be an older brother or maybe a stepbrother.”


A-anyway, do you have any favorites?”

The conversation had turned a little bit strange, but somehow we got it back on track.

Well, I am not much aware of what Miyuki likes.
However, there is a thing that came to mind.

“If I had to say something, I think she liked the classic grandmother’s curry.”


“Well, that’s what it is.
She always said that she couldn’t be satisfied with her mother’s.”

“So … she wants to taste grandmother’s flavor.”

“Recently, her health has deteriorated a bit and she was also hospitalized, so she couldn’t eat it for a while.”

” …Is that how it was? Sorry about that.”

“No, no, it’s nothing.
But, I’m sure Miyuki will certainly be happy if you make curry for her, and your cooking is incredibly delicious so there won’t be a problem either.” 

“My cooking and … delicious … I’m embarrassed”

When I softly complimented her, she blushed and hid her face with her hands.

It’s not flattery, it’s my true feelings.
I’m happy that she’s embarrassed.

“Can you make it for me?”

Of course, I will make anything for my senpai and Miyuki.”

She tightly holds my hand with an exciting look on her face.
Her black hair gently sways, and her natural sweet fragrance tickled my nostrils.
I was once again reminded how cute she was.

Recently, I noticed that Mitoma-san seems to spend a lot of time on skin care and hair moisturizing.
Well, it’s obvious from her appearance, but it’s amazing for me that she does these obvious things so casually.

She’s truly amazing, even more so than me.

When I smiled while looking at her adorable reactions, she smiled back at me… somehow, even though it feels like this is not the time, I can’t help but feel happy.

” … Um, senpai?”

“Ah… I’m sorry for ignoring you like that.”

“Is there something that’s bothering you?”

“It’s okay.
I was just thinking about something.”

” …I see.
I thought something happened because you were staring at me for a while … Oh! Were you having any perverted thoughts?”

“What?… Well, I was just looking, but…”

Now that she mentioned it, I do think her outfit today has a strong emphasis on cleavage.

“Oh my… Senpai are you staring at my b*****s?”

“…No, I mean… well, you know… haha.”

“You’re flustered~”

The mischievous smile on her face deepend even more.

Since it seemed like I was going to be drenched with more weird things, I grabbed the cart and ran away from her.

“C-Come on! Let’s keep shopping!”

And so, 30 minutes later.
While somehow avoiding Mitoma-san’s counterattack, we finished shopping safely.

“Haah… it’s finally done.”

It’s the first time I’ve been this tired after shopping at a supermarket even though it is just a few minutes away from home, and I let out a sigh.

“Finally… why are you talking like you don’t want to be with me …?”

“No, you know it yourself.
I’m not a toy that you can play with, right?”

“Oh, you caught me?”

“Yeah I caught you.
But you weren’t even trying to hide it, were you?”

“Well, that’s true.
But I like seeing your flustered face, so I want to see more of it.”

“…In your dreams and restrain yourself.”

“I also like seeing your painful face.”


“By the way, senpai?”


“I have a little bit of business with something, so is it okay if I go home first?”

“Business? What’s going on?”

“It’s a secret.
I’m going to pick someone up.”

“A secret? And who is this person you are going to pick up?”

“That’s the secret.
Since Miyuko-chan is here, I want to show it to her too.”

“Haah… Fine.”

“Okay, I’m going! Please wait for me at home!”

“Hey, wait a sec——”

As I tried to grab her, Mitoma-san immediately started running and disappeared in the direction of the station.
She left in such a hurry that I couldn’t move in time and was left alone.

But still, who is she going to pick up?

She wants to show it to Miyuki too…

I wonder who that person might be.

No, no, no! We’re not dating and I shouldn’t be thinking of such weird things! I’m just her friendly senpai.
I should be more like a mentor to her…

Could it be that she has a boyfriend?

Haha… that can’t be the case, right?

I’m worrying too much about all sorts of things!

I’m not a mentally ill person, so it’s not good for me to worry too much about my not-even-dating kouhai.
I just need to watch over her.

Mitoma-san is not the kind of person who would let me do otherwise.

“…Seriously, I’m such an idiot.”

I let out a sigh and looked up at the sky, clearing my mind of negative thoughts.

I took some deep breaths for a few seconds and started walking.

“…I guess I’ll head home as well.”

And then, on the way home.

Just as I was passing by the convenience store, a girl who was walking in front of me let out a cry and collapsed.
Since the way she fell was quite severe, she immediately started bleeding.

Unable to just leave her, I ran over to help her.

“Hey, are you okay?”

“Ah… I’m sorry…”

I had just happened to have some bandages in my pocket, so I took them out and tried to give them to her while looking at her face.

“Eh… why…”

I heard a voice of surprise.

The owner of the voice was none other than the same girl whom I was trying to give bandages to.

I wondered if I had done something wrong… I slowly started raising my head.

She had beautiful white legs, and was wearing clothes that were slightly revealing.

As her face gradually became clearer, I understood who she was.


Why was she here?

Why did this have to happen now?

All the memories that I had spent with her started resurfacing in my mind.

But the fact remains that the girl there was undoubtedly my ex-girlfriend from high school.

[PoV] Suzune Mitoma :

Ah… Senpai was really in trouble, but he looked so cool and I fell so hard for him again.
It was our first time shopping together, but I want to go to more places like this with him.

Well, that’s something for the future.
Senpai, I’ll always be by your side.
I’ll get rid of any unnecessary women who will try to approach you.

Besides, we are already connected by the red thread of fate. 

And Miyuki-chan and my sister will be able to meet each other as well today.


I want to spend more and more time with my senpai to the point where he will be completely dependent on me.

I want to know all of his likes and dislikes so that I can take care of him forever…

But today senpai was acting a little strange, I wonder what the reason for that was…
