Who in the world could have predicted that this would happen?
My head is so messed up right now that I can’t easily recover.
I thought for sure that today was going to be a great day for me.
I’ve seen Taiga almost every day and chatted with him every day, but today was the first day I became his lover for first time.
Taiga told me yesterday that he’s been thinking about me for 10 years, right?
I do too, right? I’m still too embarrassed to tell him directly, but I’ve been thinking about him for just as long, right?
That’s why I was surprised at the suddenness of yesterday, but I was really…really happy about what Taiga said. When I went home and was alone in my room, I was so happy that I cried.
That’s why today was such a special day for me.
Because it’s the first day that I meet the person I love for the first time since we became lovers.
I was in the happiest mood until I came to the classroom, you know?
The atmosphere was sweeter than usual, and I was trying my best to act as cute as possible. I tried to tease Taiga, who was grinning at me with a vacant look on his face next to me.
We used to hold hands as a matter of course when we were kids, but it had been a long time since I held his hand as a grown-up. I was so nervous during the whole way to school.
After arriving at school, I was thinking about when I would tell everyone about us when I opened the door and was greeted by my good friend Rinto.
Everyone in the class congratulated us.
I was so happy.
Yeah, our happiness will start from now on.
We have waited for 10 years for each other, so God will forgive us even if we are a little bit over the moon, right? I was thinking like that while I was chewing on my happiness.
“You tried to attack me yesterday! I thought we were friends… you sex predator!!!!”
Rena? What are you saying? Who is this sex predator? It can’t be Taiga, right?
Taiga would never do such a thing. I know that better than anyone. I’ve been watching him more closely than anyone else.
“Don’t play dumb with me! You tried to attack me yesterday after school! You even took a video of me on your phone and threatened me so that I wouldn’t be able to resist you.”
What are you saying, Rena? Yesterday after school, Taiga was with me the whole time? We did club activities next to each other, went back to the classroom together, and went home together, right?
And there’s no way he could do such a terrible thing!
I have to say something. I have to say something to protect him…! I’m too scared to speak.
The whole class is looking at me and I feel like they’re pouring their malice on me and Taiga….
I was so weak-minded that all I could do was to hide behind Taiga and hold on to his uniform.
“If he took a video with his phone, there must still be some video left, right?”
It was then that Rinto helped Taiga to the boat and I was able to get a hold of the uniform. I was so happy to see him. I should really be helping him, the man I love so much. I feel ashamed of my own weakness, but now I have to be grateful for Rinto’s kindness.
I see..! Taiga left his bag in the classroom yesterday. He was with me the whole time. So there was no way he could take the video like Rena said. I realized this from the beginning.
And if there was such a video in the bag…someone set up Taiga….
I am so confused because so many things happened so suddenly, but I know that much.
If that’s the case, what kind of grudge does Rena have against Taiga? And the person taking the video definitely has a grudge against Taiga as well.
Either way, I would be the only one on Taiga’s side.
And if there were such a video, this time I would be the one to speak up and say, “Taiga was with me all yesterday”.
As the class was enveloped in an indescribably strange atmosphere, Tachibana-san, the President who was in charge of checking the video, opened his phone.
It is honestly a pity that she was suddenly entrusted with such a big role. Even though she is petite, serious and firm, her hands are shaking.
No wonder. I would have run away from this situation.
I watched her with bated breath. But it’s okay.
This time, I will protect Taiga no matter what she says!
“Trying to push down Saito-san who was crying with her clothes disheveled… and Saito-san ran away. Also, there are many other videos of Saito-san doing, um, indecent things saved… When I pressed for more information, Saito-san’s words revealed that the two of them were actually in a relationship.”
[They used to be together] ???
[There are many videos of them doing naughty things]. ？？？？
The moment I heard those words, my head became lightheaded and I could feel my entire body drained of power. It was as if it wasn’t my body at all.
And yet, those words instantly took over my brain.
Eh? Did Taiga always have feelings for me, and was it a lie that we had a crush on each other for 10 years? I misunderstood that we had a crush on each other for 10 years.
Wait, no, no, no, no, now is not the time. Calm down, me.
Tachibana said there’s a video of him attacking Rena. That means someone is setting up Taiga for sure.
I have to tell you that here first…!
I swore to protect Taiga …… I will protect Taiga this time. What if I don’t protect him this time…!
I have to do something quickly… and yet… and yet…
I don’t know if it’s true or false that he was dating Rena, but I was so shocked that all I could do was break down and cry on the spot.
Were yesterday’s words a lie?
I’ve only held hands with him, but he did this and that with Rena-chan?
Aah… I really suck… me. Even at a time like this, I can’t move because of this stupid “jealousy”….
Everyone in the class, convinced that Taiga is the one who is evil after hearing the contents of the video, all shouted at him to go home.
He approached me with dazed steps and looked at me as if clinging to me with his usual gentle face distorted into a sad expression.
I could do nothing but sob and cry in front of him.
I will never forget the look on his face when he saw me crying.
I couldn’t protect the person I love in such an important moment.
I really want to hug his trembling body right now. But I can’t do that because I’m too weak.
Taiga leaves the classroom in a daze.
I finally couldn’t stand up and crouched down in the classroom.
