Chapter 13: Changes in surroundings
After the Golden Week break, the normal daily routine continued and before they knew it, they were on their way to the summer vacation.
The relationship between Daiki and Wakaba remained like that of sister and brother.
Daiki liked Wakaba as a member of the opposite sex, but he did not want to ruin their relationship, so he tried to avoid expressing his feelings of love.
Wakaba was still the same cheerful and cheerful Wakaba that she had always been, as if she was still not interested in love.
Daiki was fine with the way things were.
He was happy with his normal life, nothing had changed.
However, his surroundings started to change.
Even if Daiki did not want to change, the people around him wanted to change.
The gym class was a joint class with Wakaba’s class.
Wakaba is always at the center of the class, so she has a lot of friends around her, both male and female.
Daiki is also popular in class and has many friends, but he gets jealous when he sees Wakaba talking happily with boys.
Although Daiki spends more time with her than Wakaba, he feels jealous of her.
Since it was the first time that Daiki and Wakaba were in different classes, it was during P.E. class that he could see how Wakaba was spending her time in class and with what kind of friends she was spending time with.
After all, she was a popular girl.
Some of the boys in the class must like her.
Daiki also likes Wakaba, so he knew what was going on.
The boys who like Wakaba are showing off their athletic ability during gym class.
It is a typical junior high school student’s thing to do.
His appearance was like he was appealing to Wakaba with everyone around him.
Every time during PE, the boys looked forward to it, but at the same time, it was a time of bewilderment.
At the beginning and end of PE, Wakaba always came to say a few words to the Daiki, so he felt a sense of superiority over everyone else.
However, to the people around him, it looked like an older sister looking out for her younger brother.
People around them only looked at them with kind eyes.
After all, before the summer vacation, the number of love affairs gradually increased.
Even in the same class, there was a lot of talk about who they liked, who they confessed their feelings to, who they went out with, etc. Naturally, there was talk about Wakaba, too.
Naturally, Wakaba was also talked about.
Wakaba was popular and had already been confessed to by several boys.
She also mentioned something like that.
She pretended not to mind, but it still bothered him.
The only thing she told him was that he had been rejected, so for now he was trying to think that everything would be okay.
Today was a day without club activities, so they decided to go home together, but Wakaba was called by a boy, so he decided to wait until it was over.
Wakaba came back and they went home together.
” It was another confession
I don’t know anything about relationships yet, and I want to have fun with everyone, so why do they want to go out with each other?
Don’t you think so too, Daiki?”
Daiki, who likes Wakaba, wasn’t sure what to say, but he decided to go along with Wakaba.
“I think so too.”
He only answered
He was relieved that Wakaba had said no, but it was complicated.
This was because he knew that Wakaba did not see him as a member of the opposite sex.
Daiki chose to remain the same and remain normal.
Gradually the gap widened.

If he doesn’t come forward with his feelings, sooner or later he’s gonna get f*cked and he will have no one to blame but himself.

@Dennis Vicarth – as someone who’s going through what is known as a f**k-ton of therapy and unearthing all those emotions I buried my entire life, I can’t help but agree with you! Fortunately, this is fiction, so chances are he’ll get his breakthrough and live a happy life by the story end.
