Chapter 109: Bath
When we came back to the apartment from the convenience store, we decided to heat up the rice we had bought and eat it.
Shi-chan, who had just taken her medicine at noon, it was now past 7:00 p.m. and the effects of the medicine must have worn off.
Her face looked a little pained again, so I made sure she ate well first, and then she took her medicine.
After we finished eating, we went back to the bedroom and I asked Shi-chan to lie down, and since there was nothing else to do, we decided to relax and watch TV.
I asked Shi-chan to take her temperature with a thermometer, and although it was still 37.5 degrees Celsius, I was relieved to see that her fever was probably much lower than it had been when we first arrived.
“It’s getting a little better, I guess. Take a baths while you can. ……”
Shi-chan, who had been lying down for a while, stood up from the bed muttering to herself.
The medicine seemed to be working, and her expression had softened considerably.
It would be better to refrain from taking a bath when she had a high fever, but I thought she would be fine with a temperature like this, so I decided to ask her if there was anything I could do to help.
“Are you okay? Is there anything I can help you with?”
“No, I’m fine, thank you. Oh, I’m sorry to bother you after I’m done, but you can use the bathroom as well.”
I was worried, but Shi-chan smiled and replied that she was fine and asked me to use the bath as well.
I see. I’m going to take a bath, too, huh ……
That’s what I was thinking as I watched Shi-chan walk out of the room to take a bath.
The bath after Shi-chan…… Wouldn’t that be a bad idea?
To be honest, I had been thinking about it in a corner of my mind, but the fact that it was finally about to become a reality made my heart rate go up and up.
I guess if I look at it objectively, there’s nothing special about a boyfriend using the same bathroom as his girlfriend.
But for me, who had never experienced anything like this, it was still very stimulating.
And the thought that Shi-chan is probably washing her body in the same bathroom that I’m going to be using right now makes my heart pound so hard that I can’t help it.
–No, the more I think about it, the more I get stuck in the swamp. ……
In the meantime, I decided to watch TV to take my mind off of it.
But unfortunately, no matter how much I watched the variety show on TV, nothing entered my agonized mind at the moment.
About an hour later, I heard the door of the bath being opened.
Not knowing how long it would take for a girl to take a bath, I wondered what would happen if she collapsed in the bath, but I also wondered if it would be a good idea to go and check on her.
Then I heard the sound of a hair dryer, probably drying her hair.
I felt a sense of life, or rather the realization that it was just the two of us at this hour, and each thing that happened here made my heart beat faster.
After another half an hour, Shi-chan finally came back to the room after finishing her bath.
She was wearing black pajamas, which seemed to be a different color from the ones she had originally worn.
Her legs were as beautiful as ever…….
As soon as Shi-chan walked into the room, the sweet scent of shampoo filled the room, probably because she had just taken a bath.
“I feel much more refreshed after taking a bath.”
“Welcome back, that’s good. But make sure you keep yourself warm so you don’t get cold.
Shi-chan replied cheerfully to my words, and for some reason, she walked around behind me and hugged me from behind, saying, “Ei!”
Sh-chan’s sudden action made my heart jump again.
The smell of shampoo tickled my nose, and the soft touch of it on my back made me feel like I was in trouble.
“Takkun, go and take a bath, I’ve already put towels and stuff there.”
“Y-yes, thank you. I will.”
I tried to get up to go to the bath, but Shi-chan hugged me from behind and squeezed my arm tightly.
“…but, I don’t mind doing this for a little while longer.”
“…… it’s fine, you can do as much as you want.”
This is how I enjoyed Shi-chan, who hugged me happily from behind as I was told.
She said, ” I can smell Takkun’s scent, it makes me feel at ease.” Her words were enough to make my heart skip a beat, ranking in the top three words I’ve ever heard Shi-chan say that I thought were bad.
I grabbed the sweatshirt that Shi-chan had prepared for me and headed for the bathroom.
When I took it out, I noticed that underneath the sweatshirt was a pair of black boxer shorts, and I was surprised to see that she had even prepared underwear for me.
To be honest, I wanted to change my underwear as well, so I thought it would be a great help, and thankfully decided to use the boxers as well.
–Finally, I stepped into the bathroom.
As soon as I opened the door, I could smell the same scent that Shi-chan had just given me.
But I couldn’t back out now that I’d come this far, so I made up my mind to finish the bath without thinking about it, and thankfully decided to take a shower.
The shampoo and conditioner on the table were in bottles that I had never seen before, so I decided to take them and wash my head with them, thinking that they must be different from the ones sold in drugstores.
The scent of the shampoo was the same as the scent Shi-chan had given me earlier, which I thought was a little bad, but I was happy to be surrounded by that scent, so I washed my whole body with Shi-chan’s favorite soap.
This is how I finished my first bath at Shi-chan’s house, but there was one thing I knew for sure.
A good shampoo is different!
Is it the non-silicone kind? As I dried my hair, which seemed to be shinier than usual, I decided to ask Shi-chan which shampoo she used later.
