After finishing the Katsudon, Mitomai-san and I were washing dishes in the kitchen. Recently, I hadn’t been able to help much, so I decided to do this as a compensation for the pointless conversation we had earlier.
[TL/N : Katsudon is a Japanese dish, a bowl or rice topped with a deep fried breaded pork cutlet, egg, vegetables and condiments.]
Standing next to her, just for a moment I imagined that we looked like a newly married couple.
I finally started to notice Mitoma-san, who is beautiful, kind, a little erotic, and mischievous in a mature way.
And after thinking that far, I shook my head to clear off the perverted thoughts from my mind.
Shaking my head, I sighed and focused back on cleaning the dishes.
Mitoma-san then looked at me and chuckled.
“Well, it’s nothing,” she denied, but she was clearly suppressing her smile.
I am sensitive to people’s emotions and knew that she was laughing.
“I’m just laughing because I think you’re cute, senpai… It’s not a big deal, you know?”
“C-cute…?” I stammered
Mitoma-san often calls me cute, but I’m not a girl and I don’t like being called that way either. It sometimes makes me wonder if she’s making fun of me.
But, somehow, I understand. Seeing her smiling happily, I know that she’s not fooling around.
“You are really cute. I sometimes have the urge to pet you.”
I really want her to keep her thoughts to herself.
I’m sometimes scared of her eyes. I’m also sure if I let her have her way then she’ll definitely do something irreversible to me.
“Well… I want you to refrain from doing that.”
“Eh, I thought it was okay…”
“It’s fine, now go on and wash the dishes.”
After saying that and handing over the plate, the awkward atmosphere between us continued.
Though it is only a matter of seconds when everything will be back to normal between us. I’m tempted to wonder why I’m being arrogant even though I was the one who was made fun of.
Apparently I’m still upset.
After that, I washed the dishes for about 5 minutes and then sat back down on the sofa. Then, she said to me with a slightly disappointed expression.
“…I didn’t hear that the senpai had a girlfriend.”
I probably never told her about it.
“Sorry, I didn’t mention it.”
“Really, it was a surprise for me to hear it suddenly.”
“Well, I thought there was no need to mention it.”
“For me, there’s a need to know. No matter what the reason is, I won’t let any woman who had hurt senpai and made him sad even live to see the next day.”
“Hey… that’s a joke, right?”
When I asked her that, she looked straight in my eyes with a serious face:
“—Well, it’s serious, though?”
No, you shouldn’t be this serious about killing someone.
You don’t have to go that far, and her eyes look really scary right now which further proves that she is in no mood for a joke.
“Haah… As expected there is no need to do something that will only cause you future trouble.”
“But, a woman who mad senpai unhappy is not a good woman—”
“To be honest, I don’t care about her anymore.”
“Well, if the senpai says so… but I have to thank her properly when I meet her next time, after all she was the one who made you sad, senpai. I won’t leave her until she prostrates herself.”
“That’s going too far! Just feel grateful!”
“Anyway… this isn’t something I can say either. Look, I changed my mind.”
Honestly, this isn’t a matter of blaming someone easily.
It was true that she was the one who started it, but it was undoubtedly me who took it further. I was so angry, but I never thought I would end up making a mess. I was really carried away.
I used to tell myself that what I was doing was small compared to her, or that she was still kissing or hugging me… but when I did that, I felt miserable, so I stopped doing it further.
At that point, she and I were the same.
However, Mitoma-san saw my sad expression and said while peeking at my face.
“Well, it doesn’t matter anymore, you won’t fail next time, right?”
I was a little taken aback by those words.
It was so obvious that I overlooked it before.
Maybe I knew it deep down, but it wasn’t something I could put into words.
“Ah, yes. That’s right… “
“Yes. And besides, if senpai fails again, I’ll be there for you… so please don’t worry… I’ll squeeze you as much as I can.”
“I mean I’ll heal you.”
“…Oh, I see. I’m sorry for relying on you again, and thank you.”
She spoke in her own way, but I felt a little better. I also need to break away from my trauma soon. I can’t be captive forever.
I stood up from the sofa and took a deep breath before looking at the clock.
“It’s already 8 o’clock… I’ll get the bath ready.”
“It’s already this late, huh?”
“Mitoma-san, you shouldn’t stay up too late either, I’ll send you off. Don’t you have any things left to do?”
“Uh, yes… I mean, senpai… can I be a little selfish?”
“Hmm… What is it?”
I tilted my head, and she came close to me and whispered in my ear.
“Sometimes… would you like to sleep together?”
“Ahaha! Senpai, aren’t you too surprised?”
“Well, I… I didn’t expect you to say something like that…”
“That’s it. senpai seemed sad, and I’m sure there are many things that have made you tired.”
“Well, I guess so… but it’s still bad.”
“It’s not bad, is it?”
“No, I’m a guy, remember? I mean, I might smell or I might snore while sleeping. It’ll be even worse if we sleep close to each other.”
“—Actually, that might be better.”
“Hmm? Did you say something?”
“No, it’s nothing. But if it’s too much trouble, I’ll go home.”
She smiled a little but showed a somewhat sad face. If she showed me those expressions, I wouldn’t be able to refuse.
“It’s snowing heavily today… and the only place to sleep is on the ground.”
“Isn’t the bed just fine?”
“It’ll be cramped… and honestly, I really don’t want to.”
“Why don’t you like it? I can smell you directly, it’s a VIP seat.”
I don’t know what to say when she says something like a pervert.
But, I somehow got that she wouldn’t give in no matter what I said.
“—Alright, I understand. Do whatever you like.”
“Yay! Thank you!…”
She happily laughed and approached me, after we were dangerously close to each other, she whispered to me.
“You can also sniff me, you know?”
Apparently, I may have made a dangerous plan.
[PoV] Suzune Mitoma :
I will heal my senpai.
I’ll eat whatever senpai doesn’t like.
I will make my senpai happy.
You don’t have to worry because I will do anything for you.
I really want to smell him.
And I am really looking forward to seeing my senpai’s sleeping face. What kind of face, what kind of sleeping posture, how does he breathe, how does he feel and how long does he sleep.
I can observe a lot.
But if I sleep with my senpai, I’ll probably feel comfortable and close my eyes right away.
I’m sure my senpai won’t be able to sleep due to excitement… haah… haah… just imagining it is so cute!
I wonder if senpai will touch my bo-bs.
It might not be bad to leave his heart pounding…
