Chapter 120: I was thinking the same thing
Afterwards, we spent the rest of the evening watching a DVD of Shi-chan’s idol days.
The TV screen showed Shi-chan and the rest of the Angel Girls singing and dancing, and it was a strange feeling to watch such footage with her.
And again, thanks to Shi-chan telling us what was going on behind the scenes, we were able to enjoy the show, while Miya and Megumi were slacking off by pointing the microphone at the audience.
Takayuki seemed a little happy every time Megumi came out, but Shimizu-san seemed to have given up on him, or was just disappointed.
Both Megumi and Shimizu-san were petite beautiful girls, so I figured that Takayuki apparently had a petite girl type.
Then we resumed our study session for a bit, and it was late in the evening, so we called it a night.
This was the first day we all spent together at Shi-chan’s house, but as it turned out, we made good progress in our studies and really enjoyed spending time together.
“Thanks for today, Takkun. See you tomorrow…….”
“Yeah, thanks to you too. Tomorrow? I’m sorry, I have a part-time job tomorrow.”
“I-I see! Yeah, okay!”
Shi-chan was about to say something, but when I told her I had a part-time job, she didn’t say anything more.
So instead, I started to talk to her.
But, I was wondering if I could see you tomorrow after work. Like last week, you know.”
“Eh, sure! Of course you can!
“I see. I’ll be here tomorrow, so can you wait for me?”
“…… Yeah? All right.”
All right, I was able to arrange to meet Shi-chan tomorrow.
So we split up for the day and each went home.
And the next day.
I went home after finishing what I had to do during the day, and went to my part-time job as usual.
Shi-chan didn’t show up at my part-time job today, as we had promised to meet later.
So I worked hard until the end of the day, thinking about Shi-chan I would meet later.
When I finished my part-time job, I immediately decided to send Shi-chan a Lime.
“I finished my work! I’m going to you now, is that okay?”
Okay, and sent—-Picon
“Yes, I’ll be waiting!”
As soon as I sent it, I got a reply from Shi-chan.
I had told her I had a part-time job until 10 p.m., so maybe she had been standing by with her phone in her hand the whole time, and I couldn’t help but laugh at her reply, which was as fast as an automatic reply.
So, now that I had received a proper reply from Shi-chan, I headed straight to her house instead of going home today.
“Sorry for the intrusion.”
When I opened the front door, Shi-chan seemed to have been waiting for me to come, smiling happily as she invited me in.
So I smiled back at her and went up to the house.
Today, instead of the living room as yesterday, I was taken to the bedroom.
And when I opened the room, there was a small cake on the table for some reason.
“…… Eh? This is?”
“It’s still early, but Happy Birthday Takkun! And me! I know you are not available during the weekdays, so I’ll surprise you today♪.”
To my surprise, Shi-chan had prepared a cake for us to surprise our birthday.
I couldn’t help but feel happy for her, thinking that she had checked my schedule yesterday.
–After all, we’re all thinking the same thing, huh?
Then I turned to Shi-chan again.
“Well, I have a surprise for you too—- Happy birthday, Shi-chan.”
I handed her the birthday present I had in my pocket as I told her so.
I had gone out during the day to buy it today.
I was actually going to give it to her after the day changed, but I decided to give it to her now for the sake of flow.
“…… Eh, for me?”
“Yeah, I guess we were thinking the same thing.”
She was surprised, but I handed her the gift and asked her to open it.
“This is lipstick and…… a ticket to the aquarium?”
“Yes, I thought it would be a bit awkward if I just gave it to you, so I thought we could go together.”
So, along with the lipstick I bought today, I also got the tickets to the aquarium that I had obtained beforehand and had them wrapped.
I thought that if I were to give her something, she would probably feel self-conscious because of her personality, so I thought of something we could go to together, and I chose the aquarium.
Because I could picture Shi-chan happy to see the fish——
“Thank you, Takkun! I love you!”
Then Shi-chan jumped on me happily.
I guess she didn’t expect that I had prepared a surprise for her, but I was really glad that she seemed to be happy.
“Then, Shi-chan, shall we eat the cake you bought for us?”
“Yes! I’ll give you the ‘ahn’ treatment♪ ehehe♪”
And so I spent a pleasant time with Shi-chan, eating the cake with her while she gave me an ahn.
I looked at the clock and saw that it was already almost midnight.
It was long past the time when I should have gone home, but I was going to stay a while longer just for today.
The reason is that today is the 11th, or the 12th, which is Shi-chan’s birthday.
I guess Shi-chan already knows that’s why I’m here now.
It’s already late, but she doesn’t say a word, just leans back against me, her cheeks a little red and a happy expression on her face.
And then the clock struck midnight—-.
“…… Happy birthday again, Shi-chan.”
“……Yes, thank you, Takkun.”
The two of us, who had been watching TV together, huddled together, turned to face each other after exchanging those words.
–And just like that, we gently placed our lips on each other’s.
“…… hehe, it’s your turn now, isn’t it?”
“Well, yeah, I guess so.”
Well, yeah. But to be honest, I wasn’t used to being congratulated so much, so I was a bit embarrassed.
Then Shi-chan said, “Eei!” She suddenly hugged me.
“Hey Takkun, can I stay like this for another 30 minutes?”
“Sure, until you’re satisfied.”
“Is that alright? Then it will be morning.”
“Hmm, tomorrow we have school, it would be nice, but I think we’d be in trouble.”
“Hehe, I’m just kidding.”
Thus, I decided to stay in Shi-chan’s arms for a while longer before leaving.
