Relief And Conditions. (Part 2)
After paying the bill at the kushikatsu shop, we moved to a rest area in the station building.
Just before the all-you-can-eat meal was over, I received a message from Shizuki saying, ‘It’s over,’ and we decided to meet up here.
I asked, ‘How was it?’ And Shizuki simply replied, “I’ll be there soon.’
I was restless.
But it was also true that there was no point in me fidgeting any more.
I sat on the sofa, took a deep breath, let my mind go blank, and just waited for Shizuki’s return.
“I’m sure it’ll be fine, Yuuga-chi. Team Gal is usually a good group of girls.”
“I know… It’s just that I can’t help but think…”
“Oh, that’s Shizuki-san, isn’t it?”
Suddenly Haruomi spoke and pointed to a gitl walking from far.
I didn’t need to look closely to recognize her.
She was wearing the same clothes as Shizuki, whom I had met in the morning.
I got up from the sofa and ran toward Shizuki.
“Oh, Yuuga ran.”
“I guess he was more worried than I thought, Yuuga-chi.”
I hurried to Shizuki’s place, not caring about their voices.
When Shizuki saw me, she stopped dead in her tracks, her hand over her mouth in surprise.
“Ha-Hasumi-kun…! You don’t have to run so fast…”
“What happened? Are you okay?”
I was so flustered that I even found it funny.
Minai, who had caught up with me later, patted me on the back and said, “How was it?”
“…It went well. They all understood me very well.”
Shizuki’s voice was bright.
She looked relaxed and refreshed, as if a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.
I could feel the strength draining from my entire body.
We walked back to the sofa and listened to the rest of Shizuki’s story.
“What are you going to do now?”
“Yes. From the third semester, we are going to be a little distant from each other than before. But we are still friends, so we will talk and play together.”
“I see. Well, that’s good, isn’t it? It’s not like they are enemies.”
“Then, you mean you’ll be with Yuuga and Minai-chan from now on?”
“Yes. If possible, please…”
Shizuki bowed her head.
Haruomi was right, that’s how it should be for a while.
And now, Shizuki should take it easy and wait until she can make a friend who matches her pace.
“I feel like I’ll be a nuisance. Why don’t you and Yuuga-chi just be together?”
“Th-that’s not true! It’s not possible! Please be with me too, Minai-san…”
“It’s a request, Minai. I guess it won’t still be good if Shizuka will only be with me.”
“Oh, Yuga’s self-deprecating and righteous argument.”
“Senba, that’s an admiring diss.”
Haruomi laughed at Minai’s comment.
Normally, I would have complained, but now is not the time to complain.
“I can’t help it. Then leave it to me! If you stay with me, you’ll make friends in no time!”
“Thank you… Minai-san!”
Apparently, she was willing to be together.
I’m sure that’s a relief for now.
As expected of Minai, the one with the ability to communicate with others.
She is very reliable.
“Oh, but two things! I have a condition for Shizuki-chan!”
Saying that, Minami held up an index finger in front of his face.
What in the world are the conditions…
“The first one.”
“You mustn’t push yourself anymore… The first thing you need to do is to talk to me or Yuuga about anything you don’t like. Can you promise that?”
Minai’s tone of voice was gentler than ever.
Shizuki froze for a moment, then nodded slowly, deeply.
Sometimes I almost forget that Minai is this kind of person.
“Okay, second thing.”
“From now on, call me Ayami and I’ll call you Miori.”
Saying that, Minai shook Shizuki’s hand with a big smile on his face.
And after all, as usual, Minai is this kind of person.
“Yeah! Nice to meet you again, Miori!”
There are many things that make me uneasy.
But I’m sure I’ll be able to manage.
I noticed that the impatience and anxiety that had been inside me seemed to have vanished before I knew it.
…I know I’m not the only one who is relieved.
“…Sorry for worrying you.”
“…You idiot. It’s okay.”
…Well, if you want to support someone, you have to be strong yourself first.
“Oii there. Don’t flirt with each other when I’m here.”
“I’m already full of kushikatsu.”
“W-we are not flirting!”
It seems like things are going to get noisy from here on out.
“Uwaa! From now on, I’m going to get caught up in this lovey-dovey stuff…”
“But I’d like to see Yuuga flirting like this once in a while.”
“That’s just plain creepy.”
“Yeah, that one got me, too.”
“Oh, um… I would like it too…”
“Ehh!? Not only the two of you, but you too, Shizuki!?”
“That was appropriate.”
“Well, I’d certainly like to see you make out with her, you know?”
“I-I’m telling you that we are not flirting!”
Well, maybe this kind of thing isn’t as bad as it seems…
