Natsumi, Taiga, and the siblings cheered for my love to come true, but…
“Um, guys, could you listen for a minute?”
“Hm?” The four turned to look at me.
“I’m glad you’re supporting me, but there’s something I need to do before I can even think of trying…”
Yes, there was only one place to start from. I must apologize for what happened, otherwise I don’t have the right to tell him how I feel…
Maybe he won’t forgive me, even if I lay my heart bare for him… No, I’m sure that’s the most likely outcome. I still shudder whenever I remember the look he gave me that fateful day.
I couldn’t apologize for a long time, so he probably won’t listen to me, but regardless of the outcome, this is something I have to do.
“Ah, yeah, that’s right. Sorry, I just got too excited,” Taiga lowered his head.
“No no, I’m just happy to have you guys’ support.”
“Is there anything I can do to help?”
“It’s fine. This is something I have to do alone.”
“Got it… Well, at least talk to me if you need it, okay? Is this better?”
The four of them smiled at my resolution, then suddenly, Taiga remembered something and said, “Ah, well… It may take some time to sort out your feelings, but if you wanna talk to him one-on-one, wait in front of the student council office after school.”
“He said he was called by the council president, and he even said ‘Don’t follow me just because you think it’s funny!’ Though that was aimed at me and not at you, so it’s fine.”
“Ah, okay, thanks. I’ll try doing that.”
Thus, after school. I went to the student council office… Though, whenever I think of the council I see his sister, Shuri’s face. Maybe I’ll get hit again, too… Regardless, I have to be prepared for that. Just the idea of me seeking forgiveness is wrong in the first place.
So I waited for him to appear.
A while later I heard from some people that I was a bit more intense than usual during that day’s class, apparently.
