Morning in a semi-double bed!
“Hmm~, I’m full!”
Suzuka patted her belly contentedly with her hands.
It was showing a little even through her clothes, so I touched it gently.
“That’s a nice pat on the middle.”
“Yuki~, touching my body casually like that is s****l harassment, you know?”
She gives me a cold stare as she moves my hand away from her stomach, which I had been touching without thinking about it.
“Oh, that’s the childhood friend version. You don’t actually think it’s s****l harassment, do you?”
“Damn, I couldn’t fool you, could I? …”
“I mean, why were you trying to fool me?”
“There’s no reason, okay? Just wondering what will happen to Yuki. Uppu……”
Suzuka gulped, as if she was suffering from just talking with a full stomach.
It’s true that because we’ve known each other for so long, we kept eating and eating without reservation.
I was so deeply moved that I let out a small chuckle to myself.
“It’s the lack of restraint that makes it fun to be with you…”
“Hmm? What did you say?”
“I just said that Suzuka is going to get fat and plump if she keeps this up.”
I was asked about a leaked monologue.
I’m a little embarrassed to tell it like it is, so I blured it out.
“Kk. Don’t say that! I’ve been feeling a little overweight lately….”
“Really? You look the same to my eyes.”
“No, I’m absolutely sure I’ve gained weight. I definitely gained weight. I gained a lot of fat because I was lazy and didn’t want to go to school. By the way, are you okay with me gaining weight?”
“I don’t know.”
I’m probably fine with it.
Because I didn’t fall in love with her because of her body or anything like that. I like what’s inside, and that’s why I’m spending time with her.
However, I’m worried about her health if she gets fat and bloated, so I’ll give her a vague answer.
“I’ll love you no matter what! Shouldn’t you say something like that.”
“In my opinion, Suzuka’s current structure is a doozy. I won’t say such a cliche thing!”
“That’s terrible. Then I’m going to say it too! If Yuki gets fat, I’ll be a little uncomfortable!”
She becomes a bit self-conscious.
It’s not that I don’t like her, it’s that I think she likes me a little too much.
It’s a foul play, isn’t it? ……
“Ouch! Why did you peck me on the forehead!?”
“It was just a random thing.”
“Well, you didn’t do it by accident, did you? Tell me.”
“Whoa. Calm down, you ate too much. Right?”
“I’m totally ……. But I don’t think it was the first time we had grilled meat together.”
We often went out to eat together occasionally with our families.
I think we ate together quite a bit when we were in elementary school.
However, we have never had yakiniku together. We often went to family restaurants together when we were studying for exams.
“There are so many firsts in this world. I can’t survive if I worry about such things. Is Suzuka going to write something like “anniversary” on her calendar every time something happens?”
“Ha-ha, I won’t go that far.”
“By the way, when was the next anniversary?”
“Isn’t it college entrance day?”
It was spring, but the night wind was a little chilly as Suzuka and I made our way back to our new home.
We heard an unfamiliar clattering sound.
It was the sound of a lock being opened, reminding us that we had just moved in.
“I’m home. Yuki, you’re going to take a bath, right? I’ll go heat it up~”
“I’ll get the shampoo and stuff ready.”
As I watch Suzuka leave, I find a plastic bag with shampoo and other things in it, and take out the things I might use from inside.
I took out face wash, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and so on.
I took them out and brought them to the bathroom, arranging them in an easy-to-use position.
After a few moments, the bath was heated.
I asked her to put a plastic bag on my injured hand and went to the bathroom.
I sat down on the new bath chair and waited for Suzuka to wash my head.
Normally, after putting on the plastic bag, she would come with me.
“Sorry to keep you waiting! I didn’t want to get wet, so I changed into shorts.”
“I see. Well, it’s not my parents’ house, so it won’t look strange if you change into shorts.”
“Right? No~, to be honest, it was a hassle to keep my clothes dry when I was washing Yuki’s body.”
“I would have been happy if you wore a swimsuit instead of shorts, wouldn’t you?”
“You lewd man. Well, okay, maybe next time?”
“Not today? You brought your swimsuit from home, didn’t you?”
“I don’t have a stomach to show you today. Yes, turn your back!”
I was forced to turn my back to her, and she scrubbed my back with a sponge a little more forcefully.
My body was cleaned and I soaked comfortably in the bath.
And then, I realize that a serious problem is about to await me.
A bed, still a semi-double bed.
Probably, it must be difficult to sleep close to each other …
“Well, whatever will be, will be.”
I thought that at times.
Suzuka and I were on one bed.
Not snug, but there is a gap of about 30 cm between me and Suzuka.
Still better than when we tried to sleep together on the bed in my room before.
We are so well aware that we are fidgeting on the bed with each other.
But for some reason, Suzuka comes a little bit closer to me.
“Hey, Yuki. Isn’t it about time?”
I can feel the heat rising.
I let myself go with it, and I try to get closer.
“It’s not nice to be unprepared.”
I’m not stupid.
I know it’s risky to do things without preparation.
“No. I’m prepared.”
When did this happen?
Well, she went to the convenience store to get my spoon during the day.
Maybe that’s when…
I fidgeted and turned my back on her, but then I turned to Suzuka.
“No, not today!”
Suzuka turns her back shyly.
Why in the world was she in an accepting mood just now?
“Did I do something wrong?”
“Because after eating grilled meat, Yuki and I probably both smell of garlic in our mouths. …… Also, I have a large belly…”
“So I’m sorry?”
The smell of her mouth. The belly.
And how cute is it when she turns her back on me?
I wanted to attack her. I want to attack her without hesitation.
“So …… it is.”
Now that I can only use my left hand. So I don’t know if I can do it well, and I don’t want to look …… pathetic.
I don’t want to be a guy who can’t lead.
Still, the fire that had flared up was not extinguished, and I could not sleep in agony.
The alarm rings amidst the chirping of sparrows.
I stop it and we both look at each other.
“Did you sleep well, Yuki?”
“I did for a little while. How about you?”
“I could only sleep a little.”
“Pfft. What are we doing?”
“Ha-ha-ha, I really don’t know what I’m doing.”
I let my cheeks relax at the silly scene.
Then, we sit on the bed for a while, talking and enjoying ourselves.
Morning like this is not so bad.
Well, let’s go for another day…….
