The next day, when I arrived at school, Shirakawa stopped me in the corridor.
”Oi, come here for a minute. I need to talk to you.”
He was less threatening than usual, but he was still intimidating.
“Eh, I don’t want to.”
If he comes at me with that kind of attitude, I honestly don’t want to have a conversation with him. I’m sorry, but I refuse.
”W-Wait a minute! ….I want to talk to you about Itakura.”
That’s what came out of his mouth. I see. Itakura.
”I’m not interested.”
”What?! You say you’re not interested… That can’t be true!?”
Regrettably, I really don’t.
Regardless of whether he believes it or not, he told me what happened between me and Sonoda.
”Sorry, but I don’t trust Shirakawa. Besides, I heard the story directly from her.”
It’s not that I trust Itakura, though.
”Anyway, you were thinking of showing Fukumura a good part or something, weren’t you?”
Well, I guess I hit the nail. I knew that about this.
“I don’t intend to do anything directly to you, Shirakawa. So please leave me alone.”
”—It was not my intention.”
He denies it with his mouth, but his expression is one of bitterness. Most likely, he thought he would be insured.
He thought that if he showed even the slightest sign of remorse, he might be forgiven.
To be clear, it doesn’t matter.
Either way, it’s too late. I know what I’m going to do.
You sowed the seeds yourself. I hope you suffer to the fullest.
”—What are you going to do?”
”Nothing. There’s nothing I’m going to do to you.”
That’s what this is all about. It’s for your own good.
So there’s nothing you can do about it.
All you can do is destroy yourself on your own.
”Hey, are you sure about this? Onii-chan?”
After school, I was swaying on the train with Sachi, who looked a little sad.
”I’ve already made up my mind. More importantly, I’m sorry? I’m sorry you have to go along with my selfishness.”
”That’s fine, but… It’s Onii-chan who’s having a hard time.”
Last night was difficult in many ways. Well, to put it simply, Sachi got angry. I thought the devil had come out.
In the end, I told her the reason and she agreed, but I don’t think she has forgiven me 100% yet.
Anyway. First of all, I have to talk it through. Otherwise, I don’t even know if it’s feasible.
It took 10 minutes to get on the train. I get out of the station and walk for about five minutes.
I haven’t told the person I’m going to meet that I’m coming.
But I don’t need to contact that person. Because I just came back.
”I’m home, Mom…”
I think it’s time to start the rest of the fight.
