Behind the door, the two of them were still in a gear up friendship. I stood there and listened to them.
“Did Toki have a good day today?”
“Mou, don’t mention Toki-kun now, he’s coming late because of student council meeting.”
“What if he finds out?”
“He won’t… he’s not interested in my body.”
“Such a waste of a good meal.”
“It’s okay. hmmm, with Toki-kun! Ah, because we are communicating with our hearts hhmmm, yes there! ”
The most important thing is the heart which is invisible to the eye. Because it was invisible to the eye, I was willing to offer up my second most thing, my body.
But she didn’t think I could express my love with my body if my heart was still traumatized.
“You are wrong…”
She said all she needed was my heart.
My heart was full of trauma. I had never imagined that Haruka, who knew better than anyone that it had started with my mother’s affair, would do the same thing.
I guess there was no communication between our hearts.
In the end, I couldn’t stay until the end and quietly left Haruka’s house. I told myself that I shouldn’t look at what I didn’t want to look at. But when I looked up at Haruka’s room, I saw that it was covered with curtains, so I couldn’t tell if she was home or not.
I lay on the bed in my room and thought.
I thought about Haruka, the woman I love so much. I never doubted that she would always love me. Tears flowed down my cheeks.
“What should I do…”
I thought while crying. I can’t have a future with Haruka. But if it became known that we, a couple famous in the neighborhood, had broken up because of cheating, it might cause trouble for my father in the end.
As a high school sophomore, I still have a choice.
Pretend I didn’t see it. Through experience. Let’s end our high school relationship as it is and part ways upon graduation.
“I loved you, Haruka. …… Goodbye.”
I muttered quietly as I looked out the window at Haruka’s room.
The tears had already stopped.
