Ch 49 Emotions and Action
“I’m so tired!”
“We’ve been at it for about an hour. Let’s take a break.”
“I agree! I’m going to get some snacks!”
Before I could finish, she stood up briskly and left the room.
Looking at the clock provided in the room, it was already five o’clock.
I wonder if I can get dinner after eating sweets now…
There was no point in thinking about it, because Ageha was gone before I could even mention such concerns.
I crossed my arms and stretched lightly.
It was hard for me to concentrate right after I started studying, but once I got into it, I was able to concentrate quite well.
However, when I take my eyes off the textbook like this, my attention is diverted to various other things.
When I passed by Karen earlier, I noticed how she was looking at me.
It was obvious that she was avoiding me.
“As expected, I still care…”
As much as I am aware that I was at fault, I don’t know how to treat her.
In the first place, Karen seems to be a sick person, so it is hard to talk to her.
As I was letting out a small sigh, I saw Ageha come back.
“You brought a lot. Can you eat dinner?”
“Yeah, it seems like mom is coming home late today!”
She sits down next to me, spreading the pile of sweets on the tray on the table.
In a good mood, she opens the bag and takes out a packet of individually wrapped sweets and hands it to me.
I peel off the wrapping and throw it into my mouth.
The layers of dough make a crunchy sound.
It is so delicious.
I said that to Ageha, but I can’t stop eating sweets for the first time in a while.
When I reached out to eat another one, Ageha stared at me with a smile.
I feel like I lost. No, I didn’t win anything in the first place.
My head feels refreshed because I took sugar.
Just as we were about to finish our break, Ageha suddenly asked.
“What’s going on with you and your onee-chan?”
“What? What? Suddenly?”
“When I saw you at the door earlier, you were acting a little strange.”
“Oh, did I seem strange?”
“Yeah. It felt a little distant.”
After thinking about how to answer, I decided to be honest.
“I had a bit of a fight with Karen… I don’t know if it’s an exaggeration to call it a fight, but…”
“It’s rare. Haru-kun sometimes fights.”
“Well, there is. Well, it was my fault this time.”
When I said that with a shrug, Ageha whispered “Hmm” and stuffed her mouth with sweets.
Looking up at the ceiling and thinking about something, Ageha said with a blank expression.
“I don’t know what you did, but it’s probably okay.”
“It’s okay? You can’t just… say it’s okay.”
“It’s a girlfriend’s duty to take her boyfriend’s side.”
“I wonder if you’ll stand by me even if I do something wrong.”
“That’s a different story. I’ll probably get angry if Haru does something bad.”
What’s the difference?
Even though I said I did something wrong this time.
“If Haru-kun did something bad to onee-chan and got into a fight, she wouldn’t be like that.”
When I raised my eyebrows, Ageha said to complement me.
That supplement makes me even more confused.
“She would never avoid you, Haru-kun. In fact, I think she’d talk to you like crazy.”
“Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?”
“Well, do you think so?”
With a curious tilt of her head to the side, I nodded my head and said, “Yes, that’s right.”
It is natural to avoid someone who has done something you don’t like, and the opposite is unnatural.
However, when she says it, it seems to me that she is right.
The fact that they were sisters made it more convincing.
“By the way, what would you do if I did something you didn’t like?”
“Well, Haru-kun, you wouldn’t do that.”
“Hmm, after getting really angry, I’ll stick around until you apologize.”
Somehow, I think I can imagine it.
I can imagine the scene of her getting angry with tears in her eyes and then sticking close to me with a sulky look on her face.
“I like Haru-kun, so I don’t want to leave him even if he does something bad to me.”
I wasn’t expecting the story to go like this, so I was caught off guard.
When I was holding my hot face, Ageha asked me this time.
“What would you do, Haru-kun? What if I did something really, really bad?”
“I can’t imagine it…”
“I did my best to imagine it, so do your best too, Haru-kun.”
She puffed out her cheeks and glared at me.
I don’t want to borrow Ageha’s words, but I don’t want to leave Ageha just because she did something bad to me.
“I’ll be confused about what happened all of a sudden.”
“And then what?”
“For the time being, maybe we should go eat something sweet together.”
When I said it out, Ageha stiffened with wide eyes.
Then she let out a pleasant laugh, “Ahaha.”
“I just thought it was typical of you, Haru-kun. I just thought it would be nice if I could do something bad for you and get you to eat something sweet.”
“… Invite me normally like that.”
“Then I’ll invite you! Let’s go out to eat after the test is over.”
“I’ll look for a restaurant.”
“Yay! You promised!” I couldn’t help but smile as she exclaimed in delight.
