● The arrival of death, the joy of rebirth, the connection of bond.
「Today is a safe day, so please come to my room.」
In the approaching morning of summer vacation, I had to attend my usual supplementary classes at school. I happened to meet Shiinamachi Kaguya-senpai, one of the librarian committees as I was walking through the corridor.
I was shocked and rendered speechless to hear such a bold confession coming out of her innocent mouth. I was confused and unable to comprehend what she had just said and for a while I stood there motionless, then I slowly adjusted my vanity glasses.
「What did you just say, Shiinamachi-senpai?」
I stared at her without blinking, in response senpai slightly inclined her head and with her soft eyes remaining downcast she spoke
「Jiro-kun, today is my safe day. Tonight, just before midnight ー could you please come to my room? It is located in the clock tower.」
It seems like I didn’t mishear senpai the first time, she explicitly asked me to come visit her room at night.
What does this mean? What in the world is happening? Since when did our relationship develop to such an intimate level?
I couldn’t help it, but my eyes moved from Shiinamachi-senpai’s face to stare at her breasts. Even when covered in her uniforms, her magnificent bust clearly stood out from her petite frame.
It is slightly out of place from her slender figure, so I guess her cup size must be considerably massive.
A lot of boys at our Prefectural Oukayama High School idolize Shiinamachi-senpai. Senpai was not only elegant and beautiful, her petite and slender stature instilled men with an urge to protect her from any harm. Then, when you look at her breasts, you can’t help but think Shiinamachi-senpai is simply just the embodiment perfection *gulp*. Naturally, I, Sakuradamon Jiro am also one of her many admirers.
「So … In the middle of the night?」
「Yes, come and visit me at midnight in my room.」
Shiinamachi-senpai’s eyes always looked somnolent, her facial expression rarely changed. Hence no matter how hard I tried to look into her eyes, I couldn’t read into her emotions.
Currently, senpai was looking upwards at me, having just asked me the most outrageous proposition, still waiting for my reply. Unmistakably, this must be reality.
Even though I had a crush on senpai … I couldn’t just treat her proposal lightly. I really need to think about this calmly.
Shiinamachi-senpai and I never get to spend a lot of time together, so how could she suddenly developed such feelings towards me? I wondered if her feelings were what you would call『Love at first sight?』
No, I needed to stop myself from thinking that way. Love at first sight is something that can only happen in dramas or movies.
Though I must admit it would be pretty nice if that were to happen in real life, wouldn’t it?
I decided to change the way I was thinking, at least while I was at this school, I would enjoy my youth to the fullest. I wanted to study well, find a girlfriend and made lots of wonderful memories through to graduation. That was my earlier ambition when I first transferred to this school and wasn’t this now the perfect opportunity to make this happen?
「Is it no good?」
Oh no, I was so engrossed in my own thoughts that I failed to notice that Shiinamachi-senpai had became uneasy.
As a girl, she must had mustered all her courage to make such confession. So, as a man, how could I waver and be so half-hearted towards her?
I need to man up and respond with my guts. I needed to show her that I too am serious about this.
Contrary to the fierce voice of determination in my heart, my response was a weak stutter.
I hoped senpai could forgive me. After all, in all my life, I never had a girl confess to me so passionately before.
「Really? Oh, I am so glad … I always hope Jiro-kun would be the first man in my story.」
I was stunned.Is this really happening? Did she just say that? Calm down, Jiro, calm down.
Frantically I adjusted my vanity glasses that seemed to be sliding down my face and steadied my almost irregular breathing.
This was the first time ever that I was born to feel like such a nerve wracking mess. It is in a sense, and many ways Shiinamachi-senpai would be my first time too.
But wait, no, no, come on, what did she mean by 『my story』 it just sounded too poetic as a term. No matter how much I tried to calm myself, thinking about this just made me more nervous.
「Are you all right, Jiro-kun? 」
「I’m fine. I am honored.」
「Is that so … I am also very happy you agreed, Jiro-kun.」
Senpai smiled like flower blossoms with such gentleness, her eyes locked with my gaze and my heart beat faster and faster. I was a goner.
Surely, there were absolutely no guys who could withstand that smile without feeling a sweet sense of anticipation. I wondered if this suffering in my heart was an indication that I had completely fallen under Shiinamachi-senpai’s charm?
「Well then, please also do your best in today’s supplementary lesson.」
「Yes, I will definitely try my best.」
But actually, I didn’t think I would be able to concentrate at all in class today.
Today’s event had shaken me to the core, and it would be something I would remember for the rest of my life.
However, I would have never guessed that this would be the moment that would mark the end of my life.
