“Wow! I can’t believe there’s such a beautiful place outside this store!”
“There’s a nice view if you look from the second floor. Well, it’s even more magical at night…”
It’s not like I can do magic at night. Actually, I don’t even know magic…
” … And … Taiyo … can we continue where we left off? The fact that you called me your girlfriend …”
I had to be brave. I had to clarify our relationship here.
“Umm, Yuzuki …, I, Yuzuki …”
When I was about to say something, Yuzuki covered my mouth with her hand.
What the hell does she think she’s doing? …!
“Don’t say any more. There is something I have to tell Taiyo. I like you, Taiyo. I love you. But because I love you …, I can’t be your girlfriend.”
…What? Can’t be my girlfriend …? What does that mean …? Even though you like me? What? What? What? What? What’s going on? What do you mean?
(TLN:-Mc lost it)
“I’m sorry. Taiyo would be surprised if I suddenly said something like this. It’s strange that I can’t be your girlfriend even though I like you.”
Yuzuki said this with a smile. But tears were shimmering within her eyes.
“I’m sure … you know that I’m not always honest about my feelings. So I would often hit Taiyo too hard. I would say things that I don’t mean to say. Taiyo will never be happy with me. It may be good for now, but I’m going to get sick of it. So I think Taiyo will be much happier with someone else. I’m Taiyo’s childhood friend, and that’s enough to make me happy.”
Yuzuki said this to me with tears streaming down her face, and forcing a smile on her face.
‒ Ahhh … what is this feeling? Anger? Sadness? Loneliness? I think it’s probably all of them. Yuzuki doesn’t know anything about me. Nothing … You don’t know anything!.(TLN:-Enough to make a grown person cry.)
I started to shout at Yuzuki, holding back the tears that were about to flow.
“LIES, … You like me, don’t you? You love me very much. There’s no way you’re going to find true happiness if you don’t get together with … ME!”
“Why …? Why do you say that? Even though I tried so hard to tell you …”
Yuzuki sat down on the spot. The smile on her face was no longer there. I approached Yuzuki.
“WHY?! THAT’S MY LINE!? … YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING!!!”
“I know … I know, that is why I did this … “
“Then … then … then … THEN DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT ANYONE OTHER THAN YOU CAN MAKE ME HAPPY!!!”
Yuzuki was silent.
“Hey, Yuzuki. I like you, Yuzuki. I love you. I love you so much that I don’t know what to do with myself. I’ve been devoted to Yuzuki since forever and ever. The Yuzuki when she’s not being honest; Yuzuki, when she’s frustrated; Yuzuki, when she’s angry; Yuzuki, when she’s sulking … I love all of them.”
After I said that, I stretched out my hand towards Yuzuki.
“Even after listening to my honest feelings you, Yuzuki, still think that we won’t find happiness after we both tie the knot. If you still think like that then please don’t grab my right hand. But if my feelings reach to your heart, I would really want you to take hold of my right hand (tightly).”
Yuzuki’s eyes were swollen. She had been crying too much.
“I’m sure I’ll continue to be a nuisance to you for a long time to come, and there will be times when I won’t be honest with you. But! But! I’ll try my best to be the one who suits Taiyo. So please let me be your Girlfriend until you stop loving me?”
Yuzuki said that and grabbed my hand. I was annoyed by what she said at the end, so I pulled her towards me and hugged her.
“How can I hate you, You baka.”
After that, Yuzuki and I hugged each other for a while. That was how Yuzuki and I started dating.
One week later.
Today, Yuzuki was studying in my room again.
Yuzuki turned around.
“I’ve got a girlfriend.”
“Damn. Congratulations. I have something to tell you, too. I’ve got a boyfriend too.”
“I see. Congratulations. How about a hug congratulating each other?”
“What’s with the … congratulatory hug? Well, whatever. I’ll give you a hug.”
And we hugged each other.
“I love you, Yuzuki.”
“I love you too, … Taiyo.”
Then we kissed.
(TLN:-Tler has died from the amount of sugar. Future projects may be delayed unless someone revives me)
I think I’m the happiest person in the world right now.
I hoped that this kind of happiness would last forever.
“Yuzuki, do you know why I lied to you about having a girlfriend?”
“How would I know that? …”
… I see.
So let’s talk about it now …
I’m going to tell you “About the Time When I Lied to My Tsundere Childhood Friend That I Got a Girlfriend”
