The thunder rumbled again.
It was much louder and closer than before. Futaba-senpai didn’t even react to the sound.
I called out to her, but she didn’t look up.
The sound of falling rain mixed with the gentle sound of swooshing sleep could be heard.
On my lap, Futaba-senpai was asleep. I wondered if she was tired of being scared. It would be a fool’s errand to wake her up.
The sound of rain, the sound of sleep, and the occasional thunder. Surrounded by this unbalanced triumvirate, I looked up at the sky in a daze.
I felt a warmth in my stomach. As I get used to the distance between me and Futaba-senpai, it becomes warmer and warmer.
I want to stay like this forever.
“It’s so warm…”
I mutter the same words as Futaba-senpai.
Human body temperature is so warm. It hasn’t even been a month yet. We were just eating lunch together on the roof.
I feel like I’m going crazy when I’m with this person.
“I like you, Futaba-senpai.”
The words I was supposed to say earlier, I say now.
The true nature of the fuzzy pink poison becomes apparent.
It seems that I’ve already fallen in love with this person.
This poison is the poison of love.
As I realized this, I gradually began to feel sleepy. A warmth spreads through my body, like the warm cocoa I drank in the freezing winter.
I listened to the sound of the rain.
The sound of water droplets popping irregularly echoed in my ears. The popping cools down the burning body.
…Before I knew it, I had fallen asleep. It’s such a comfort to know that someone is right there.
My sleep was quite deep.
When I woke up at the sound of her voice, the rain and thunder had stopped.
“Goose-stepping on someone’s lap…”
In front of me, there was Futaba-senpai.
When I hurriedly raised myself up, I found senpai sitting on the floor with her cheeks puffed out.
“I was worried when you didn’t wake up for so long.”
“It stopped raining a long time ago.”
The sun was peeking out and reflecting off the puddles.
“Was I… asleep?”
“Yes, all the time, like it felt good. It’s the end of fifth period.”
As soon as the senpai said that, the chime rang.
“It’s the sixth period. Hurry up and go. You have class.”
“What about you?”
“I’m fine. Come on, hurry up!”
Looking flustered, Futaba-senpai pushed me back and sent me towards the door.
“I’m sorry about that.”
“No problem. I’d rather thank you myself.”
“Thank you for being there for me… You made me feel less scared.”
Senpai said with a hint of embarrassment.
“See you… tomorrow.”
“…Yes, see you tomorrow.”
The door slowly closed.
Senpai waved me off. Behind me, the stairs were as dusty as ever.
That’s when I finally realized something.
“Could it be that I’ve been on her knees all this time…?”
