Finally, I told Shi-chan how I’ve felt about her all my life.
Before today, I honestly couldn’t imagine myself confessing my feelings to a girl.
But I fell in love again with Shi-chan, who hadn’t changed a bit since then.
She was beautiful, she was cute, and on top of that, she was a national idol and extremely famous.
That’s how the world sees Shion Saegusa.
But in reality, her charm is not just her looks and title.
She treats everyone with open arms, smiles a lot, and sometimes acts suspiciously, but it’s all cute.
That’s why I fell in love with Shi-chan again.
When it came time for me to confess my feelings, I was strangely not nervous.
I was always worried that my relationship with Shi-chan would break down, or that she would leave me. It’s the same now.
But more than that, I want to know more about Shi-chan, who is sitting in front of me right now, and if it were possible, I would want to stay next to her forever.
With these thoughts in mind, I stared straight at Shi-chan and waited for her answer.
Shi-chan froze, looking a little surprised, as if time had stopped.
I thought about calling out to her, but I decided to just wait.
Then, a single tear fell from Shi-chan’s big, clingy eyes.
She didn’t even wipe the tears from her eyes.
“…… It’s like a dream.”
It’s not a dream.
“It’s not a dream, is it?”
“…… Yeah, maybe.”
“…… what are you talking”
Shi-chan laughed, crying at my half-hearted answer.
“It doesn’t matter if this is a dream or reality, the fact remains that I’m in front of you right now and I love you.”
“I see. …… Yes, you’re right.”
Then Shi-chan wiped her own tears with a handkerchief she took out of her bag.
Then she looked straight into my face as if she had made up her mind.
Her hands on my lap were trembling slightly, but she squeezed them tightly as if to hold on.
The way she looks at me, I decide to prepare myself.
I’m prepared to accept whatever words Shi-chan says from now on, no matter what they are.
So I stared straight back at Shi-chan’s face and waited for her next words with anxiety, nervousness, and faint anticipation in my heart.
“…… I’ve always loved you too, Takkun. …… If you are okay with me, please take care of me.”
Shichan then smiled softly and happily.
“Yeah, so that’s a…….”
“…… Yeah, I’m Takkun’s girlfriend, and Takkun is my…… boyfriend”
Shi-chan answered my question happily, her ears turning bright red.
Thanks to her words, I finally started to feel it.
I see. …… She’s my girlfriend. ……
–Not good, this feels like a dream
But this is not a dream—–.
“Hey Takkun, it looks like we’ve just reached the top!”
Shi-chan said happily as she looked out the window.
I also looked out the window and saw that the whole area was dyed in the color of sunset, a very beautiful sight.
Then Shi-chan, who was sitting across from me, suddenly stood up and sat down next to me.
“Hey! Shi-chan, you’re shaking!”
“Hahaha, I’m fine! Come on, Takkun, let’s take a photo!”
Laughing at my impatience as the Ferris wheel shook, Shi-chan took out her phone from her bag.
Then she put her small, cute face next to mine.
“It’s a memorial to our …… relationship.”
Then she stretched out her arm and pressed the shutter button on her phone.
On the screen of the phone was a picture of me with a slightly troubled look on my face and a subtle smile on my face, and Shi-chan smiling happily next to me.
Such a memorial photo made me kind of happy and funny, and we laughed at each other as if we were blowing up.
“…… I love you, Takkun.”
“……I love you too, Shi-chan.”
We looked at each other and smiled as we said these words to each other to confirm our love once again.
