Konomi seems to have made some new friends in her class.
Some mention of Golden Week. (Golden Week is from April 29 to May 5)
She seems to be invited by the friends as part of… manga matsuri? (Manga Festival?)
Yuji and I look at Konomi and her new friends.
“That chibi-suke, seems to have changed a lot lately…”
I seem to not agree, Konomi is the same.
“You’re so slow.”
“She’s more a girl now than before. A lot cuter too. I could never even have dreamed it.”
“What do you think of Konomi?”
I answer bullishly again, saying I’m not interested.
“You might be saying that now, but what if Konomi gets a boyfriend already?”
“Isn’t it about time you up your relationship to be more than just childhood friends?”
Are you serious?
“I’m always serious.”
“Actually, it seems that someone in her class may have taken a liking of her.”
I seem to be a bit disturbed, but still not interested.
“Well, the guy doesn’t seem to be serious in saying that.”
“But, if you continue to be like that, if you realize that you are serious about her later than expected, she will turn you down.”
We’re just childhood friends, and I think Konomi thinks that way too.
“Are you serious? I thought you are just slow, but this is a turn for the worse.”
“Sure you are just childhood friends, but having your so-called childhood friend walk with you every morning, cook you bento meals… And she’s in this school too, but that seems normal enough.”
“I’ll say this to you, I could say that I’m also childhood friends with Konomi. Even so, I don’t remember walking with her alone in the mornings, nor cook me bento meals.”
“And I can’t even imagine having her coming to my house, or even her sleeping over with matching pajamas in our futon whenever her mother is going away…”
“Do you understand?”
“But if, Konomi herself doesn’t realize her own feelings, you must be a really good match.” (in not realizing one’s own feelings part)
“Well, believing on me or not depends on you. Just don’t regret later.”
Konomi sees me.
Konomi tells me about her friends.
“What were you talking with Yuu-kun anyway?”
I seem to be blushing, because it’s about Konomi after all. I try to escape the conversation.
“You’re face is red, anything wrong?”
This is nothing.
“You seem hot…”
I think she’s either touching my forehead with her hands… or with her own forehead. (the usual bishoujo way)
Konomi’s friends call her out.
Yuji seems to be surprised with what happened.
Konomi comes back to her friends.
Friend 1 “Hey hey, that person…”
Friend 1 “Maybe…”
Friend 2 “Ehh? That means…”
