As I had announced this morning, Mami had come to my room.
Mami and I were facing each other across an assembled table.
“So, how are you going to steal back Hiroto-kun?”
“Wait, are you really going to loot Hiroto?
Mami was even more enthusiastic than I was.
I was reluctant to confirm my understanding of the situation.
“Of course not. Is it okay if Hiroto-kun gets a girlfriend and that’s the end of it?”
“I don’t know. A-Anyway, I don’t think it’s up for me to decide anymore. ……”
“That doesn’t sound like Asuka. Asuka is more selfish, self-indulgent, and only wants what’s best for herself, right?”
“Wait, I’m not that selfish!”
Her perception of me is too much …….
However, it’s also true that I can’t confidently deny it. Uugh I’m too much of a b*tch.
“I mean, I’m pretty pissed off, even though despite my appearance”
“Pissed off about what?”
I think it’s wrong for Mami to be irritated with Hiroto. ……
I think it’s a little bit of a stretch to say that Hiroto and Mami have an indescribable, delicate relationship to begin with.
“He just broke up with Asuka and is making it easy for himself to get a girlfriend. And Asuka refuses other advances”
“That’s not true. We broke up, so I have no right to blame Hiroto.”
It is true that after Hiroto and I broke up, I received several confessions of love.
I have turned down all of them.
But it was not because of what happened with Hiroto.
It was because it was impossible for me to imagine going out with Hiroto for even a moment.
Hiroto is the only one I’ve allowed myself to be with. I am not interested in any other guy.
Fundamentally, I think I don’t like men.
“Really? I don’t think it’s normal for someone to go out with another girl within a month of breaking up with someone.”
“But there are different standards out there for each individual,……”
“Even if that’s the case! I mean, Hiroto-kun is still in love with Asuka, no matter how you look at it. He was definitely ready to get back together with Asuka!”
“….Hiroto is not in love with me. Even when I suggested that we get back together, he didn’t accept it.”
“He’s either stubborn or someone told him something strange. My gut says so!”
“Oh, you’re underestimating me, aren’t you? My intuition is really accurate.”
Mami says confidently.
It is true that Hiroto’s behavior has been inconsistent since we broke up.
He is a straight character once he decides to do something.
However, his rejection of me and his visits to visit me were all out of order.
It was not like Hiroto.
Maybe Hiroto’s mental state was unstable after he broke up with me?
If that’s why he was easily moved by other people’s words, it would explain his inconsistent behavior.
Besides, I think Hiroto often used the word “I don’t know”.
I feel lost, I want an answer, and if there is someone who can show it to me, I might be tempted to follow that person.
—–Maybe I’m overthinking it.
“In the first place, Hiroto-kun is such a weirdo that he would fall for Asuka, isn’t he?”
“I can’t help but feel maliciousness in the way you say it.”
“No, if he knew Asuka’s inner self, he’d normally avoid you.”
“Ugh, that’s true.”
I want to deny it, but I’m honest enough to admit it.
The boys who confessed their feelings to me were almost 100% of the time either someone I had never met before or someone I had barely spoken to before.
Yet, Hiroto confessed his feelings for me after knowing more than enough about me.
I think Hiroto is crazy.
“It really doesn’t make sense that this weirdo would go out with a cute girl like Sakura. Unless someone told him to get a girlfriend, it doesn’t make sense to me. I mean, she’s not really Hiroto’s type, is she?”
“I-I don’t know about that. Maybe he likes a girl like Sakura-san, who is cute both inside and outside. …… I mean, if you had normal sensibilities, you would definitely go out with her.”
” Surely Hiroto doesn’t have normal sensibilities, does he?”
“No, there’s no need to be so definitive, is there?”
To be told that your ex-boyfriend is not a normal person is a bit complicated.
It seems that it is said that even I, the ex-girlfriend, it’s unusual.
Mami sniffed and leaned forward as she put her hands on the table.
“I’ll leave the final decision to Asuka, but I still think that Asuka and Hiroto-kun are……”
“—-What are you talking about?”
Suddenly, the door to the room opens. At the same time, a familiar voice came down.
I looked up and there she was, my sister.
“D-Don’t come in here so suddenly! Sis!”
“Oh, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I was getting excited, so I got curious.”
The girl smiled and put her hands together as if she was troubled.
“Oh, Chinami! Nice timing! Now we’re talking about looting Hiroto.”
Mami’s smile blossoms and she explains the current situation to her sister in a simplified manner.
“Stealing……. Asuka, are you still in love with Hiro-kun?”
“….Tsu. N-not really. As for the stealing, it’s just something Mami says on her own.”
When my sister questioned me, I turned away.
“I see. Mami, I don’t think it’s a good idea for outsiders to talk too much about it. I’m sad that Asuka and Hiro broke up, but I don’t like the idea of forcing them to get back together. I don’t think it’s right to steal someone else. It’s between the two of them, so let’s leave it alone.”
She spoke to Mami in a calm tone of voice.
“But isn’t it strange that Hiroto-kun is acting so strangely right now? It seems like he’s forcibly trying to keep his feelings away from Asuka.”
“Is that so? For me, he seems to have gotten over his breakup with Asuka.”
“I disagree with you.”
“Right. I mean, Mami-chan seems to be watching Hiro a lot. I never had the image that you had much contact with him.”
“Asuka talks about Hiroto in her spare time. And he also came to our classroom quite often.”
“I see. Well, Hiro-kun has moved on to a new relationship, so I don’t think it’s a good idea to get in his way.”
“…… But then, Asuka…”
She almost says that much, but then she holds her tongue.
Mami is thinking about me. So, it seems that she is thinking about this case with my feelings as the top priority.
The reason I’m not doing well is because I broke up with Hiroto.
I guess that’s why she wants me to get back together with Hiroto and cheer up.
My sister took one look at Mami, who had an itchy expression on her face, and then turned her attention to me.
“If you still love Hiro-kun so much that you have lingering feelings for him, why did you threaten to break up with him? Didn’t you think he would really break up with you? I don’t think Asuka is that stupid.”
A straightforward question.
There’s no ostracism. Straight and simple.
That’s why my heart jumped and my eyes were shaken.
Then I remembered.
I remember the first time I threatened to break up with him.
