For Some Reason, the School Goddess Likes to Hang Out at My House Chapter 87

Secret Conversation between Rin and Mom

“I’m going to go shopping. In the meantime, you have to do your assignments properly, okay?”

“Yeah, okay…….”

After the summer festival, Towa and I came back home.

Towa-kun’s health has improved greatly, and he is doing his part-time job without any problems.

However, the conversation between Towa-kun and I…

“After that day, it was kind of …… awkward.”

At the end of the summer festival, I conveyed my feelings ………….

No, I don’t think I told him clearly…….

After that, I feel that Towa-kun’s attitude has become a little less friendly.

It’s possible that I’m just being overly conscious of it, since it has happened at times before……

Hmmm …….

Thinking about it will only add to the agitation in my mind and the bewilderment in my feelings.

“What should I do? I’m in trouble…….”

I hold my hand up to the brilliant sun and squint.

It’s so bright …… that it feels depressing.

I don’t usually feel that way …….

“Hah …”

The sigh that naturally leaks out makes me feel more depressed.

I’ve heard it said that after a confession, things get awkward and then the relationship drifts apart…….

Is that exactly what’s going on here ……?

I had to go shopping, but my steps were heavy, so I walked into a nearby park.

I sat down on a bench and looked up at the sky again.

Not a cloud in the sky.

That makes me feel somewhat irresistibly envious.

“Boo, boo.”

As I sighed and turned my head down, my phone vibrated and the screen read “Mom”.

I can’t help but chuckle at the perfect timing.

“Yoo-hoo~! Hello~, Rin-chan?”

When I answered the phone, I heard a very excited voice.

It seems that she is enjoying her trip…….

Oh, but …… calling at this time.

She sounds like she’s having fun, but maybe something is wrong ……?

“Mom, what’s wrong? Could it be that you have some trouble on your trip……?”

“No, not at all. It’s fun to travel. It’s like love~”

It was different.

But it’s good to see that they seem to be getting along as well as ever.

I’m a little jealous……, though.

My dad is usually busy, but he spends a lot of time with our family.

Well, …… just a bit overprotective of me, but …….

And when I mention Towa-kun, he snaps his fingers and smacks his lips.

I’ll have to think about it if the two of them ever decide to meet…….

“Rin-chan? You suddenly became silent, are you okay?”

“Oh, I’m sorry! At any rate, I’m relieved to hear that there was no trouble. Please enjoy your time together as a married couple.”

“Of course! And so, did you make use of your mother’s nice assist?”

“Um ……, well ……, at a minimum.”

I stammered at the sudden question from my mom.

It is true that we were able to shorten the distance this summer…….

However, it is also true that new issues have come to light.

I have a lot of things I need to think about…….

“What~? What’s that reaction~? Mom is curious.”

“……Even if you’re getting so excited….”

“Hey, hey~, how far have you gotten?”

“I confessed…….?”

“Why the doubt? I don’t think it’s because you “chuu-ed” him, or “gave him a half-hearted message”. It could be that you withheld the truth from him…?”

I could feel my cheeks tugging as she pointed it out so accurately, as if she had been watching me.

My mom has always seemed to be a calm person, but she really sees things well and is a good judge of situations.

I want to ask her if she is psychic.

I think it’s amazing.

However, in this case, I am a little embarrassed …….

“Hey, hey, what’s up? This is the first time I’ve ever used a reference.”

“It’s all …….”

“Oh no~. Rin-chan, you’re not a pushover when it comes to important things.”

“Please …… don’t read the situation and my mind exactly.”

“It’s impossible~! We’re family. Mom will know~.”

“Family ……. Yes, we are family. ……”

“Family”. 

When I heard that word, the conversation with Towa-kun came back to my mind.

Try to keep as calm as possible, and with Towa-kun’s voice …….

I don’t know what he feels, what he thinks, and for what reason he is so stubborn…….

I don’t know exactly.

I wish there was something I could do to help…….

As I was thinking about this, she said, “Rin-chan? Can I ask you one question?” I heard the gentle voice of my mother calling my name.

“…… What is it?”

“Is there anything you want to ask mom?”

“Um, ……. No, …… it’s fine. It’s okay. This is my problem.”

It’s a problem that I have to deal with.

I was determined to make him say, “I want to be with you forever.” but the more I thought about it, the more I was confused about what I should do.

As I thought about this and kept quiet, I heard my mother’s gentle laughter.

“Yes, ……. So, what I’m about to tell you is just mom talking to herself, so you don’t have to listen to it.”

Then she starts to speak slowly, in a different tone of voice than usual.

“People say they don’t like something, but they still want it. Especially human warmth and connection. You need to be honest and not give up on those who refuse to accept it.”

“…………”

“And if he can’t look forward, you have to be the one to pull him back.”

“Pull …?”

“Yes. The good thing about you is that you can choose for yourself and go ahead without being misled.”

“Can I ……?”

“Can I do that?” I swallowed the words that came out of my mouth.

Words are powerful.

Once I say it, it constrains my heart.

So I swallow and ask my mom.

“Mom, what do you think I should do?”

She laughs at my question and says.

“Follow your heart!”

That voice ……, echoed in my darkened mind as I struggled with various issues.

That voice gave me a sudden jolt.

At the same time, I could feel the growing cloud in my head clearing.

“Rin-chan appears to be rational, but you live with the intuition and sensitivity of an animal, so there’s no need to think about this.”

“……Aren’t you mocking me?”

I disapprove of my mother, who has returned to her usual way of speaking.

But she didn’t seem to mind and continued on her merry way.

“That’s not true. There’s nothing wrong with the choice you made, Rin-chan. You’ve made your choice, and it is the right path, right? You can’t help but think before you act~.”

“That’s right … That’s right …”

“Mmm, good girl. Okay? No matter what happens, I will support you. That’s the kind of woman you should be. He can be a little on the dangerous side, so be careful, okay?”

“Yes … Thank you, mom.”

I felt much better, as if I hadn’t been troubled until just now.

It is true that instead of worrying about this and that, I should be close to him …… and try my best to approach him.

“I …… will do my best! I’ll try to get closer!”

“That’s what I’m talking about. All right, I’ll teach you the traditional ‘distress posture’.”

“Please!”

“Wait a minute!!!”

A loud voice came over the phone, interrupting my enthusiasm.

They must be fighting for the phone.

I can hear my mother’s voice saying, “No, no, let me go!”

(TLN: Rin’s mother also calls her dad: “Dad” and “Papa”…I was confused as well.)

“Hey, Rin! I’ve got something to tell you! What kind of person would do that!?”

“Oh my God, Dad. You love Mom so much, don’t you?”

“Let go of me…….”

“Oh no, don’t be so hard on me ……. I’m on the phone~.”

“Oh, Mom? Please be nice to dad.”

It’s funny to see how close they are, but …….

I think the skinship is a bit excessive at times.

I don’t think that’s a problem, though.

“No problem. There are some people in this world for whom this is a reward~. That’s why Papa is in a state of euphoria. Hey! Papa ……?”

“Yes! My love for Lisa is infinite (Voice behind Lisa’s back).”

“That’s not a problem.”

I can’t help but smile at the depth of love between the married couple.

Maybe this is the kind of relationship I should aim for.

“Hey! Rin, take Lisa’s words seriously…….”

“Papa~? It’s too early to go to bed. So long, Rin. Do your best.”

“Of course.”

“Fufu. I’ll catch up with you later!”

At the end of the call, I heard a high-spirited voice as usual, and the phone was cut off.

Well…

“Let’s work hard today!”

I slapped my cheeks once and started walking towards the store.

My footsteps were light and I felt like I could run faster than anyone else.

That’s how I felt.
