oma-kun all to myself.

“But we broke up after a month.

“What? After just a month? Was there a reason?”


Toma-kun hesitated for a few seconds, then let out a slightly pained voice…

That’s why I need to act like I always do.

“What are you doing… Toma-kun? That’s a despicable act, you know? If I were your girlfriend, I’d beat you up.”

“Oh, no no.
It’s not like I was two-timing.
It was my ex-girlfriend who…”

“Hehehe, I’m just kidding.
I know you’re not the type to do that kind of thing.”

“Oh, if you say so, it makes me happy.”

Toma-kun’s face cracks a small smile as he scratches his cheek bashfully.

If Toma-kun were the type to cheat, I think I would lose faith in humanity.
It’s only been a year since we started dating, but I trust him that much.

“Is there anything else?”

“That’s all.”

“I see… There really wasn’t anything interesting.”

“But didn’t say it was okay, Sasaki-san?”

“That’s right… I’m sorry.”

I knew it was insensitive, but I tried my best to hide my excitement.

After all, my crush has only been in one relationship before… And it only lasted a month.

Maybe they held hands, but the chance that he’s kissed his ex is low.
The chance that they’ve done anything more than that is even lower.

And, there isn’t much difference between me who has never been in a relationship and Taiga-kun who has been in a one-month relationship.

(I’m so happy…)

I can’t say such things even if my life depended on it.
I can’t tell anyone.

Toma-kun’s consideration doesn’t come from his experience in love, but from his experience working at a part-time job, a bar, and I have come to that conclusion.

“So, that’s why I still have some anxiety.
This is the first time I’ve told anyone, Sasaki-san…”


A thin film resembling mist covers Toma-kun’s face.
At this moment, “happy” is overlaid with “want to comfort” Toma-kun.

I’ve never seen Toma-kun with this expression before…

“If I were to date someone, I’m worried about whether she might two-time me again…I have no intention of dragging my past with me, but it just keeps coming back to me…”



Silence falls…the first silence since we arrived here.

“I’m sorry for bringing up such a dark topic…”

“Toma-kun, this is the first time you’ve told me this, right?”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“Well then, I should tell you something too.
It wouldn’t be fair otherwise.”


I gathered my courage here…

Toma-kun had confided in me his anxiety for the first time, so I wanted to do something in return… That’s what being older is about.

“I… I’m completely devoted to whoever I’m with, to the point where I won’t be beaten by any other woman… I won’t even consider two-timing.
Instead, I’ll..
make sure my partner is completely mine.
I’ll make them unable to imagine being with anyone else but… me…”

With my handbag on my back, I smiled at Toma-kun.

“So, Toma-kun, why don’t you try to catch a girl who is as faithful as that? There must be girls who think of you in that way.”

I gently put my hand on Toma-kun’s shoulder and took two, three steps forward, avoiding looking directly at him.

“That’s it then, Toma-kun.
I’ll be going now.”

“Huh, ah, I’ll…I’ll see you off.”

“It’s okay, I’m fine here.
You should go back and rest both your body and mind.
I had fun today.
Let’s meet again at the bar.”


I don’t know what kind of face Toma-kun made while listening to me… He might be thinking I said something weird… I’m scared to look back…

I turned the next corner at a speed comparable to that of the cat from a certain Ghibli movie, and ran on the sidewalk like a cat burglar.

My face is so hot that it feels like it’s about to burn.
I’m probably turning red.

“Why, why, why am I such an idiot…? How embarrassing… How could I have tried to act so cool…?!”

That day, Mio, in her desperation, finished drinking black coffee for the first time at home.
