My hand was being held and Ayana had gone on ahead of me, but even so, her words were a bit reassuring to me.
I felt as if Ayana had told me that it was okay for me to be here in this world full of things that I still don’t understand.
I’m always getting anxious and relieved. Yare yare, it makes me think there’s no point in fretting like this.
Of course, I am troubled by the sudden change in the world in which I live, so only I can understand what I am going through at this point in my life.
I am also in a position to say to the contrary, that it is probably too much to be dithering about such things, and what do I know about such things from a stranger……. Yes, these worries are not a bad thing.
I stopped and Ayana was waiting for me a little further ahead.
I was impressed by the look of anxiety on her face, wondering if she had made me concerned again, and I just chuckled, but I knew I was bothering her, so I immediately rushed over to her.
“Sorry, sorry, I’m fine now.”
Still, Ayana glanced at my face for a while, but soon stopped worrying about it, as if she felt that I really seemed to be okay.
After all this time, the distance between me and Shu was getting farther and farther away, and even though I would have seen his back earlier, he was already gone.
“Shu, he is going to fast”
“Yes, he is. Hey Towa, can I cross my arms with you?”
What did Ayana just say?
I’m sure she must have uttered the question, but my body moved in response to her and took a form that allowed me to firmly cross her arms.
I felt Ayana’s arms gently embrace me as if she were holding a precious object.
Not only the feel of Ayana’s arms, but also the softness of her ample bulge was directly felt, making me a little nervous.
(……After all, when we are alone together, Ayana instantly becomes closer to me.)
Compared to yesterday’s after-school activities, it was still not that exciting entanglement, but it still made me feel that there was something between me and Ayana.
It was just the two of us ……, and even if it wasn’t, I could always ask her questions over the phone or something, but that’s when I decided to go ahead and ask.
I thought I heard such a voice, and then Ayana’s arms suddenly separated from me.
I turned around, feeling a little sad at the warmth and softness that had disappeared from her arms, and saw that it was a girl from my junior year who was there.
However, that girl was also one that I should be concerned about because I know the situation of this world.
“Mari-chan? Good morning.”
“Yes! Good morning!”
The boyish girl who greeted me with a smile was Mari Uchida, the cuckolded heroine in the junior slot.
When she saw me standing next to Ayana, she – Mari – rolled her eyes in surprise, but immediately raised her voice and bowed her head.
“Nice to meet you! If I may say so, you are Yukishiro-senpai, right? I’ve heard about you from both Ayana-senpai and Shu-senpai!”
“Is that so? I’m Towa Yukishiro. Nice to meet you.”
“Yes! I’m Mari Uchida! Nice to meet you!”
What can I say …… she really is a girl like a bundle of energy.
(I see …… that Towa and Mari met here for the first time.)
This part of the story has never been told in the game, so it’s not impossible that this encounter was brought about simply because of the influence of me becoming Towa.
In addition, in the game, the interaction between Towa and the other heroines is basically limited, and there was no description of his acquaintance with Mari or Iori, so it seems strange to experience a scene where Towa is talking with Mari in this way.
“But I see,……, I had seen you from a distance, but Yukishiro-senpai really is a very, very handsome man!”
“Really? Thank you”
I wasn’t really smiling or anything, but Mari’s face turned red.
Now it’s about my body, but Towa really has a face so good-looking that I often wish I had been born with such a face in a previous life,…….
After that, Mari also decided to go to school with us since we had just met up with her in this way.
That said, Ayana and Mari are basically having a friendly conversation, and I’m just watching them, just as I did with Shu.
“……She’s a good, energetic girl.”
I’ve only been conversing with her for a little while, but I can tell that Mari is a very nice person.
The fact that even such a girl can be cuckolded makes erotic game scenarios deep in karma, and the story is truly irredeemable.
“I’m sure that girl is ……”
Mari started going to a gym, and the trainer there started messing with her.
She is a member of the track and field team and is a promising young woman with a bright future ahead of her, so she was supposed to start going to the gym to live up to the expectations of those around her as much as possible.
[Shu-senpai! The truth is, I’m going to start going to a certain gym next week!]
She cheerfully told Shu, and the flag was raised to the point where any eroge player with a long history of erotic games would have guessed that this was a no-brainer.
“…….But it’s weird.”
On second thought, with the exception of Ayana, all four of Shu’s closest female acquaintances began to experience malice toward him at about the same time.
The sequence of events that occur as if they were synchronized with each other gives the impression of something intentional, but I wonder if it is the production team’s direction.
“Speaking of which, where’s Shu-senpai?”
“I told him that I couldn’t make it after school today, and he sulked. ……”
When Ayana told her this, Mari laughed.
“I see. But in a way, is it Ayana-senpai’s prerogative to make Shu-senpai sulk like that?”
I chuckled in spite of myself, not wanting such a privilege.
I had maintained a certain distance from the two of them, and Mari turned her head to me to see if I wanted to have a conversation not only with Ayana but also with her.
“I’ve been wanting to talk to Yukishiro-senpai like this for a long time. I’ve always heard from Shu-senpai that Yukishiro-senpai is like a hero!”
“Hero? …… I’m not like that.”
“Towa-kun is cool. He is a hero without a doubt.”
Even Ayana said so, which made me a little uncomfortable, but my Towa face seemed to make even such a subtle smile look good-looking, and Mari let out an ooh.
“Yukishiro-senpai is really handsome… is his personality also good-looking?”
“I don’t understand that myself. I have a lot of times when I’m confused and worried like Shu.”
“No, no, the way he answers and the way he acts, he is already good-looking.”
I think someone should teach Mari what the definition of a good-looking man is.
“I have made the acquaintance of Yukishiro-senpai in this way, and it is thanks to Ayana-senpai that I have met Shu-senpai. It seems as if Ayana-senpai has brought me many encounters.”
“Is that so?”
I asked Ayana and she nodded her head.
It had been mentioned that Ayana was the reason Iori met Shu, but there was no mention of Mari, so it was only now that I learned that Mari, like Iori, met Shu through Ayana’s influence.
I was also actively involved in the conversation as we headed to school, where I parted from Mari with the box that had been dropped off and headed to class.
