TL: Volume 3. I can’t daily upload it like before but will try my best. Enjoy this chapter.
The next day.
I went to my work for the first time in a long time.
Yesterday we went to an amusement park, and I boldly confessed my feelings to Shi-chan, and we ended up going out ……. Even after one night, I still felt like yesterday was a dream.
But thinking about it, that Shi-chan is my girlfriend. And I can’t help but smile to myself without telling anyone.
I know what I’m doing, and to be honest, I’m getting carried away right now.
But I really wish I could stop thinking about it.
Who would have thought that the center of the Angel Girls, the cute girl I used to watch on TV when I was in middle school, would become my girlfriend? I don’t.
At the same time, I couldn’t shake off the uneasiness I felt about lover, who I loved so much and who was so unsuitable for me.
The door of the convenience store was opened and a melody flowed through the store.
I had been lost in thought, but I pulled myself together and said “Irasshaimase” as usual.
When I checked the customers who had come in, I found Shi-chan, as I had expected.
As usual, she wore a mask and thick-rimmed glasses and was not wearing…….
Shi-chan showed up at the convenience store with her face uncovered, a little bit of makeup on, and everything in place.
“Oh, it’s Takkun! Hi, I’m here!”
When I was surprised, Shi-chan happily waved her adorable hand towards me with a flutter.
I did tell her that I had to work via Lime today.
However, I was honestly surprised to see her in such a serious mode, not the usual suspicious style.
And she was still cute. Too cute—–.
When I thought that this overwhelmingly cute girl had become my girlfriend, I naturally felt my face getting hot.
However, when I thought about it calmly, it was honestly a very lucky thing to be able to talk to Shi-chan like this during my part-time job.
“It-it’s a little embarrassing to be seen at work.”
“Really? I think it’s cool?”
When I was embarrassed, Shi-chan replied that she thought it was cool.
That made my face even hotter.
“Well, I’m off to do some shopping, so I’ll see you later!”
Then Shi-chan walked to the magazine section, just as she did when she was in the suspicious style.
Unlike usual, today Shi-chan seemed to have plenty of time on her hands and was happily browsing through a normal women’s magazine.
However, no one would expect a former national idol to be reading a magazine in a nondescript local convenience store.
It was a strange sight, or rather a strange feeling.
When Shi-chan finished reading the magazine, she put two drinks in her shopping basket and brought it to the cashier.
She placed the basket on the register and said “Please treat me well!” She smiled at me.
I smiled back at her and said, “Yes, sir!” and finished the counting quickly.
“Well, that makes 258 yen.”
She’s not a suspicious person, so she doesn’t show any suspicious behavior anymore.
Her movements up to this point had been normal.
That’s right, now Shi-chan doesn’t need to act suspiciously at all, because she is the perfect Shion Saegusa that everyone dreams of.
…… Well, I don’t think there was any reason to behave suspiciously like in the old days.
While I was looking at her with that thought in my mind, Shi-chan’s hand suddenly stopped as she opened her wallet.
What’s happening? Then, for some reason, she closed the zipper of her coin purse, which was almost open, and took out a 1,000 yen bill from next to her and gently offered it to me.
I thought to myself, “You’re not going to give up on that, are you?” I took the 1,000 yen bill and finished the transaction.
Then I handed her the change and the receipt together.
Then, Shi-chan wrapped her hands around my hand as she accepted the change with the same care as before.
“…… Takkun, good luck with your part-time job!”
She squeezed my hand with both hands and cheered me on with a little blush.
“U-un, thank you, I’ll do my best.”
“Th-Then! I’ll be back!”
When Shi-chan heard my reply, she smiled happily, quickly put the coins in her wallet, and walked out of the convenience store while waving her hand.
I stared at my own hand, remembering the feeling of Shi-chan’s hand still lingering in my mind.
I couldn’t help but laugh to myself when I thought that this was just like an idol’s handshake session.
No, no, no, it’ s the other way around, I joked in my mind as I was giving Shi-chan a handshake.
And so it was that Shi-chan was still acting suspicious even after we got together.
