I got a text from my wife, Misae, who cheated on me, saying she wanted to meet and talk.
The twins and I were having dinner.
“Sorry, I’m going out tomorrow morning.”
Tomorrow is a holiday.
Originally, I was going to go shopping with the twins.
“I’ll be fine in the afternoon, so let’s go shopping.”
“……, Sensei. Are you going to meet your wife?”
The first person to guess the correct answer was Nanako, the older sister.
Her dark eyes looked straight at me.
I guess she was upset and was wondering why.
I knew it……, when I mumbled and Nanako’s body shook with anger.
“Eh!? Okarin, you’re meeting that idiot wife!? Why? !”
Her younger sister Akari, a blonde gal, comes on board.
I can’t hide this from them …….
I tried to handle it without giving these guys any extra attention if I could.
“I got a message from Misae. She wants to talk to me in person. She wants to start over.”
“HA ～～～～～～!? What is she talking about? What kind of stupid wife is she?!”
“…… This is the first time I’ve seen someone so rude. She cheated on you, and now she wants to start over! She’s crazy!”
Both Akari and Nanako were really angry.
I was happy that they were angry on my behalf.
“O-Okarin, are you possibly getting back together?”
Let’s be clear about this.
I don’t want to make the girls nervous.
“My feelings for Misae have completely gone cold. I’ll see her tomorrow, get her to write the divorce papers and be done with it.”
“Yes! That sounds great!”
“…… But why would she want to get back together now?”
Nanako suddenly expressed her doubts.
It’s certainly not logical that she would cheat on me, leave me, and then suddenly send me a text asking me to start over.
“Don’t you get it? It’s that simple. The guy who cheated on his wife dumped her, right?”
Akari said with a puzzled look on her face.
“…… I-I see. I don’t know why I didn’t notice. But didn’t they love each other at least?”
“The guy she’s having an affair with is a young flirtatious guy, right? When he gets tired of her, he’ll just throw her away. His wife seems to have an ugly personality.”
“…… I see. She was dumped by her lover and now she wants to come back to him because she has nowhere else to go.”
“Right. That’s what I thought, too.”
I’m sure I thought so too.” …… and Nanako bites her lip.
“…… It’s disgusting. It makes me want to throw up.”
“It’s not every day that a woman is this disgusting. I have no sympathy for her.
I have no sympathy for Misaye.
I don’t care if she breaks up with her cheating …… boyfriend Kisogawa.
I’m going to have her write up the divorce papers, and we’ll part ways with the past. That’s it.
“I mean, if she really feels bad, she should come here and bow to you in person, not via line.”
“……, She is so high and mighty. Who does she think she is?
“Well, ……, leave it at that. It’s pointless to get angry at her. It’s a waste of calories. It’s a waste of calories.
“Okarin, where are you meeting your stupid wife tomorrow?”
“Coffee shop in front of the station, 10:00.”
“Hmm. Okay. We’ll be ready for you.”
Akari and Nanako nodded their heads.
“Wait, wait, you’re not going to follow me, right?”
“”Eh, we can’t?””
“Of course not. This is between us.”
They both puffed their cheeks in frustration.
“I don’t want you guys to meet Misawe. So don’t follow me, okay, absolutely not, promise?”
Akari, but even Nanako was planning to get in?
I can’t believe she was shy enough to try that hard.
She must have been very angry with me.
…… I was happy about that.
” If you need reinforcements, let me know right away. I’m going in with a trump card.”
Akari says with pride and confidence.
“Trump? What’s that?”
“A trump card is a trump card. I have a very effective card with which you can get rid of an unfaithful wife in one blow.”
Fufufu, Akari puffed out her big chest.
…… Oh, I remember you saying something meaningful to me before.
” Well……I’m just going to go and make her write the divorce papers, so I don’t think that card’s going to come into play, maybe.”
And so, I headed to the meeting to divorce my wife.
Ten o’clock. I was at a coffee shop in front of the station.
It was a holiday, so the place was quite crowded.
My wife, …… Misae, was sitting by the window.
I sat in front of my wife.
“I’m sorry to call you out when you’re so busy.”
“…… You have other things to apologize for first?”
I tried to keep my tone flat.
But …… my throat was shaking with anger.
” ……Dear, I’m sorry for betraying you.”
“It’s not like you betrayed me. Your act is a betrayal.
How could she be unfaithful to her husband by bringing another man into the house while he was working?
If that’s not betrayal, I don’t know what is.
“Listen, no. That was …….”
Before Misae could say anything, I lowered my voice and took out the documents from my bag.
I put the divorce papers on the desk.
“I’m not going to listen to you. This is a divorce. Sign this. That’s it.”
Now ……, the blood drained from Misae’s face.
“W-wait, ……! Please, just listen to me!”
Misae hurriedly stood up and raised her voice.
“Misae. Sit down. You’re disturbing the people around you.”
Misae bit her lip and sat down quietly.
I don’t care if she raises her voice or not.
No matter what she does, I can’t shake my decision.
“Hurry up and write the divorce papers.”
“Wait, let’s talk about it…….okay? Okay?”
Misae was sweating profusely and desperately pleaded with me.
“Talk? Where’s the room for discussion? You had a husband and you slept with another man. Isn’t that a fact?”
“What’s different? Tell me. I’ll listen to you.”
“Because…….It’s different……It’s different because…….because…….”
Sweating profusely and on the verge of tears, Misae’s eyes moved restlessly.
I’m sure she’s desperately trying to find an excuse.
But it’s impossible.
It’s a fact that she had an affair and slept with a man.
“Hey, hey dear ……, can we stop doing this?”
Misae came next to me and hugged me.
She deliberately clutched her breasts together, squirmed in her arms, and said in a flirtatious tone of voice.
“Please forgive me. Let’s be friends again, just like old times.”
Just like old times. ……huh.
…… When I think back to the old days, I can’t say that we were close.
The only time she was nice to me was the day we got married.
The rest of the time, she gradually grew colder and colder. …… At the end of the day, she was completely cold.
Misae wants to get back together.
But …… I have no intention of getting back together with this person.
“You think if you flatter me like that, I’ll change my mind?”
“I’m sorry, but no matter what happens, I have no intention of touching you.”
I shake off Misaye’s hand that is attached to me.
As she tried to grab me again, I fought her off.
I sit back down in front of her, lift the divorce papers from the table and press them against her chest.
“Let’s break up. I’ll leave you and live on my own, and you can live happily with…….Kisogawa.”
“T-hat’s …… impossible. ……! Because ……”
“Because he dumped you?”
Misae looked very surprised, perhaps because I had hit the nail on the head.
I knew it. …….
“You’ve been dumped by a young man, you’ve got nowhere to go, you’ve got no money, so you’re going to go back to the dull old man who has all the money you need. …… That’s pretty much it.”
“….Y-you got it wr…….”
“If not, why are you in such a hurry? Hey, why did you suddenly move out of the house, then lose touch with me, and now decide to ask me to start over? Tell me.”
Misae fell completely silent.
She turned down and became teary-eyed, not moving slightly.
“Sorry ……. I’m sorry, I won’t do it again. …… Let’s…….”
Misae pleaded as she squeezed out.
“Won’t do it again? You betrayed and cheated on your husband. …… Where in the world is there any room for trust in your words?”
Misae, unable to say anything, opens and closes her mouth, and then …….
She dropped her shoulders with a sigh.
