“Hey! What are you doing!”
Yuki then stands in front of me and I was leaning against the wall, beaten.
“Oh? What the hell?”
“Stop it! What are you doing?”
“Why are you defending that guy? Don’t you know what he has done?
“Shota is not that kind of guy!”
I don’t know what you can learn about me in just a couple of weeks … But that’s what I wanted my childhood friends and family to say to me when I was in middle school. It made me happy to hear it from my closest classmate.
“You’re so annoying!”
Yamamoto then tried to aim his fist towards Yuki. I don’t mind as long as I’m the one being hit, but I can’t do that.
I tackle Yamamoto as hard as I can.
“Oh, you son of a b*tch!”
The other two try to hit him, but he avoids them and then rolls to his feet. …… I’ve done it, haven’t I? I’ve done it. …… Well it can’t be helped it, right?
“I’m sorry, Yuki. I’m sorry I dragged you into this.”
“Eh, no, no. Are you okay, Shota?”
“Yes, I’m fine. …… Let’s run for now.”
“Uh, oh, yes.”
The two of us run off together. I’m not sure what to do, but I’m sure I’ll be fine. I can hear them saying, “Hey, wait, hey!”I can hear them saying, “Hey, wait!
I ran as fast as I could and reached the field. The part on my body where I was hit or kicked hurts a lot. ……
“Hey, are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m just a little tired. ……”
I ran as fast as I could. I usually run for sport, but now I am running trying to escape. …… Well, that’s okay. Anyway.
“Thank you, Yuki.”
“Eh? I thought you were following me, because you were worried about me.”
” Well yes, but ……. I haven’t done anything?”
No, That’s not true. Thank you, Yuki.”
“…. Well it’s fine”
He looks as if something doesn’t add up, but he really appreciates my grattitude. I was really happy to hear that he was not that kind of guy.
“Then you can tell me all about it.”
“No, you’ve been acting strange lately. The rumor that’s going around now has something to do with it, right? Don’t tell me you’re dragging me into this and not telling me?”
“I thought I was careful not to get you involved. ……”
“Well, well, well, and look how it turned out. I’m not saying you have to, just tell me if you can.”
“Well, yeah. I mean, I got you involved.”
I looked at my watch and saw that it had only been about ten minutes since the lunch break started. If that’s the case, let’s talk about it here……
I walked over to the edge of the field where Miyamoto-san and I had searched for the lost hairpin a while ago, and decided to sit down and talk to Yuki about what happened in middle school.
