Act 2 - Summer Break

11-1 Summer break is full of upheaval


The shrill of cicadas stung my ears.
The sun was shining so brightly that it was making me furious, and it was burning my brain as if it would never stop.

It's summer. My least favorite season.

Dressed in three-quarter-length pants and a white short-sleeved T-shirt, I was walking on the sun-drenched asphalt on the first day of summer break, the day I was supposed to be grateful to have.
If it were true, I would have been sitting in my air-conditioned room doing my summer homework by now――――

(Yet, I can't just turn around and not go there, can I?......)

I look up at the annoyingly clear sky and let out a sigh.
In an attempt to escape reality, I stopped and looked at the screen of my phone.

[I'm waiting for you at a family restaurant near the station.]

It was our class rep, Nikaido Azusa, who was sending me this message.
I had to explain to her why I had an aquarium date with a national idol the other day.
I wondered many times why she bothered to do that....... But it would be a disaster if I refused the invitation and in case it was spread.
After all, I hardly knew what kind of person Nikaido was. All the knowledge I had now was based on rumors, and it was quite possible that her serious attitude was just a facade, just like mine.
I could only hope that she wouldn't use this as a ploy to demand money or anything else.

I arrived at the family restaurant shortly and opened the door with a melancholy feeling.
I told the waitress that I was meeting someone and looked around the restaurant. Then I saw a familiar face sitting at the far end of the table.

"......sorry to keep you waiting, Nikaido-san." (Rintaro)
"Shidou-kun...... sorry for calling you out of the blue." (Azusa)

As I approached, Nikaido bowed her head with a complicated expression.
Haa, if you're feeling that way, why didn't you just shut up?

"No, it's okay....... I kind of understand your concern." (Rintaro)

I finished ordering a drink at the drink bar.
After pouring a melon soda and bringing it back, then I waited for her to start talking.

"I've been thinking about it for a while now." (Azusa)
"Mm......." (Rintaro)
"The one who was at the aquarium, that was Otosaki-san, wasn't it? You two were wearing matched T-shirts...... could it be that Shidou-kun's girlfriend is Otosaki-san?" (Azusa)

The questions came as generally expected.
I used a straw to take a sip of my melon soda and let out a sigh for the umpteenth time today.

"......Nikaido-san, you've got it all wrong." (Rintaro)
"Huh?" (Azusa)

For the past four days since I received the first Line message from Nikaido-san, I have been incessantly thinking of excuses to make to her.
And I had already created the perfect script for my excuse.

"Actually, I was being a bit pretentious at that time. Nikaido-san and the others were having a good time with the four of you, right? I was kind of jealous of that, so I lied about having a girlfriend." (Rintaro)
"S-so that was what happened....... But then, why were you with Otosaki-san?" (Azusa)
"――――I can't tell you anything from here on out unless you promise not to spread this." (Rintaro)

I stared right into Nikaido's eyes, creating a serious atmosphere.
Perhaps noticing the change in the atmosphere, she nodded her head, seemingly overwhelmed.

"Okay. I'll tell you then.――Actually, Otosaki-san and I are somewhat distant relatives." (Rintaro)
"What?" (Azusa)
"I guess you can say we're "second cousins". Since we were able to enter the same school, so I sometimes help her write new songs. This time it was a song about love, so we decided to do something date-like." (Rintaro)
"...... S-so that was it." (Azusa)

Seeing Nikaido's stunned expression, I was convinced I'd won.
This was my idea of a lie that would be just barely believable.
By bringing up the exquisitely distant kinship of being second cousins, I first made it impossible for her to go into the matter. If it was a cousin, she might be able to find out some information, but if it was a second cousin, there would be no way to find out unless she was the police.
This should be enough to fool her for the rest of my high school life.

――――Well, I know it's impossible, though.

"Otosaki-san is an idol, so she can't have a boyfriend. Which is why I, as a relative of hers, help her with that role. It is just an occasional thing." (Rintaro)
"I see, so you two aren't a lover......." (Azusa)
"Yeah, I've never had a girlfriend in my life." (Rintaro)

Hahaha, I spilled a dry laugh out.
Nikaido, on the other hand, was patting her chest as if relieved for some reason. What in the world is this a reaction to?

"Th-then! Shidou-kun, is there someone you like right now......?" (Azusa)
"Huh?" (Rintaro)
"I kind of wanted to ask......." (Azusa)

Nikaido suddenly uttered such a thing while fidgeting.
As expected, I could tell that it was this blatant.

This girl, probably had feelings for me.

Or, rather, if I think about it, it was just a matter of course.
When we met at the aquarium, I already had the feeling that she was somewhat conscious of me, but that feeling disappeared once she heard that I had a girlfriend. However, once she learned that the obstacle was actually no longer there, it was a different story.

"Someone I like, huh......" (Rintaro)

It's fortuitous for me that we had strayed from the topic of my relationship with Rei. Let's get on to the new topic then.

If I had to ponder about the person I like.
What came to mind was that beautiful blonde girl.
I shook my head and shook off the image of a girl that came to mind.

"I don't have any. There are a lot of people I like, but...... I don't have anyone who I'm interested in being my girlfriend right now." (Rintaro)
"I see......." (Azusa)
"What about you, Nikaido-san? Do you have a crush on one of those you're always with?" (Rintaro)
"I-I don't have! No, no, no!" (Azusa)

Judging by the way she was shaking her head frantically, she was really serious.
Kakihara, you can cry all you want. I'll at least buy you a beef bowl. I'll treat you if it's up to a special serving.

"Kakihara-kun and Doumoto-kun are both very dependable and cool boys, but I've never considered them as romantic partners. I think they're great friends, but I don't think I can see them in that way." (Azusa)
"......Heeh, So that is it. Maybe you have been together too long with them to feel that way, yes." (Rintaro)
"Yes, I guess. I don't feel this kind of pounding, except...... When I think of the person I like." (Azusa)

――――Seriously, Kakihara is getting pathetic.

It's no longer even a joke.
I'd like to assist him somehow.......

"So there's no one you're interested in after all......?" (Rintaro)
"...... Mmm. Right now, there is." (Azusa)
"I-I see! That's great, yes! What a youth!" (Rintaro)

Stop it, don't look at me with such moist eyes.
At times like this, I regretted from the bottom of my heart that I was not such a dense protagonist. No, why don't I just act like a dense one already?
Alright, that's it. Let's just pretend that I hadn't noticed at all.

"I wonder who he is. I'd like to take a guess, so why don't you tell me what type of the guy you like?" (Rintaro)
"Eh!? O-okay......." (Azusa)

If I could get the type of person she liked with this, I might be able to tell Kakihara about it. Even if she didn't see him as a man right now, it didn't mean that the future is set in stone. If he can make up for this, I'm sure that Kakihara's love won't be unattainable.――――I thought. I was not sure, though.

"I think it's someone who is "family-oriented" and who suddenly shows a fragile expression....... I like someone who allows me to stand next to him, rather than following behind or in front of him." (Azusa)
"Ho...... hoo~h." (Rintaro)

I flinched a little when I received such an answer that was more serious than I had imagined.
If Nikaido was really starting to like me, I wonder which part of me she would find attractive.
The only time we had any contact with each other was during the cooking class.
I did stand next to her, though. I showed her my family-oriented side by cooking with her. And she said, "I just thought you had such a kind of face." (PTW/N: chap 13.)

――――That reminds me.

At a certain time, there are creatures that walk by two feet. These creatures can be divided into two by gender. These creatures are surprisingly able to pick something using things called hands.
And on a certain day, two of these creatures meet.

"Halloo~ I am Bujangga, ndesu! Nice to meet you!"
