Episode 24: A Distorted Group By Any Means? (Part 2)
“Damn it! Itsuki Sanaaaa! I’ll never lose to you! I won’t lose to you for sure!”
And then, Kazuharu being Kazuharu, just as I thought he was getting up, Kazuharu suddenly pointed at Sana and declared her his rival.
Um….? What’s wrong with you, really?
“Wha-what!? I’m in competition with you!? I thought we were friends!?”
Sana was also confused. Of course she would be. I’m confused too.
“And friends ….yes, we’re friends! But you and I are in competition with each other!”
“Compete with …what?”
Sana tilted her head and looked at me. I tilted my head as well.
I just can’t follow today’s Kazuharu. Did he eat some kind of weird mushroom or something, …this guy?
“You don’t need to know about that right now… but I’m not going to lose! So if I offer you a match, I want you to take it!”
“Let’s see, ….in short, if someone offers you a match, just accept it, right?”
“All right. All right.”
And Sana, being Sana, easily said yes. No good, this girl’s crazy too.
“Don’t accept it so easily either!”
”It’s fine. I’ve never played a game with my friends, so I’m looking forward to it.”
Sana seemed to be saying that she would accept it.
No, this is fine as long as they are friends.
“I don’t know if I need to hold back in a situation like this….”
Asuka, while looking at me and Kazuharu, soliloquy.
Hmm? Did you ever refrain from doing anything? I can’t read the air of this group at all.
Perhaps this group consisted of something extremely delicately balanced. I suddenly felt such anxiety.
“All right! Then let’s play something together, all four of us!”
“Great. I’m in.”
Asuka and Sana agreed to Kazuharu’s proposal, and I agreed with them. Even though we are going to play, what are we going to do with this group of people?
For now, we decided to think about it as we walked, so the four of us headed for the elevator.
While I was watching from behind as Kazuharu and Asuka were walking in the hallway, talking about what they were going to play together, Sana suddenly turned to me.
“Everyone is calling each other by their first names, but I’m the only one calling them by their last names. I wonder if it’s better to call them by their first names in situations like this, so that they feel closer to each other?”
I don’t know how to be friends with boys, Sana added.
Come to think of it, earlier she had said ‘Sakuma-kun’ and ‘Sato-kun’. I’ve also recently started calling Sato ‘Asuka’, so it certainly seems that only Sana is a little distant.
“You can’t do that. Don’t call any man by his first name except me.”
“Because I don’t like it.”
When I realized that, I said so and gently grabbed Sana’s hand. Sana looked at me with surprise, but she didn’t scream “HIAAAAAAAA!?” like before. Maybe it was because Kazuharu and the others were in front of her. Whatever the reason, it was a relief because I would have died if she had screamed here.
So far, the two people in front of me haven’t found out. However, it was dangerous for me to hold their hands like this. Still, I was feeling a psychological resistance to Sana calling another man by his name.
Perhaps this was ….jealousy. Wouldn’t it be annoying to Sana if I forced my feelings like this on her? A slight twinge of regret crossed my mind.
But she blushed and gave me a small nod. Then, she gently squeezes my hand back.
(Okay. …I’ll only do it for Kaoru-kun.)
The look on her face was so cute, I wanted to hug her but I couldn’t because of them.
I don’t know what our relationship is. …But I’m sure we’re “friends” now. We can’t go any further.
It would be a disaster if I were to accidentally seen by Kazuharu and Asuka, so I said, “Thank you,” and gently let go of her hand. We both looked a little regretful, but also a little relieved. I wonder if this is the only way we can get closer, little by little.
But that’s okay for now. I tried to convince myself of that.
