IBDOW Chapter 5

Hmm? Hmm.

Is it 7 o’clock now?

Golden Week starts today, huh?

But I don’t have anything to do.

I was invited by a senpai yesterday, but…

Oh! well. It doesn’t matter.

I have no intention of going.

I’m going to eat breakfast and do some assignments.

Furthermore, I’ve got a lot of work to do.



Is it 12 o’clock now?

It looks like I’ve been studying pretty hard.

I’ve finished quite a few assignments.

It’s a little cloudy outside.

I remember the weather forecast said it was going to rain.

… I wonder if I should go to senpai.

No, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter.

I might be betrayed if I go there with high expectations.

What should I do for lunch?


The time now is 1:30 a.m. The time for the appointment with senpai has passed.

It was starting to rain outside.

Even if she had come, she would have gone home, right?

I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. She will be fine.

I told myself. As if to clear away the fog in my mind.


The time now is 2:30.



The time now is 3:30.

She went home… right?

Maybe she never came in the first place.

No, I’m sure she did.



The time now is 4:30.

Since then, the fog in my mind has been swelling up.

What is it?

I don’t want to be betrayed anymore. That’s right.

In fact, it’s something I don’t want to have to go through.



But if so, I am… The act I’m doing now is.

… Damn.



What an idiot. I am.

I rushed to the station.

Furthermore, I know now what’s really bothering me.

Not only that, but I can’t believe I didn’t notice such a simple thing.

She said,

“I’ll be waiting for you.”

She said it three times.

That’s because she believes in me.

Because she believes that I will come.

I think she is just like me in the past, although our positions are opposite.

And I am the one who is trying to betray her.

That’s right. I’m trying to do the same thing as Ichika-senpai.

Ichika-senpai, who only gave me useless expectations, didn’t want me to come in the first place.

But Reika-senpai is different… I think so.

In junior high school, I innocently wanted to be with her, and I wanted to go to and from school with her.

I didn’t act on it, though.

Reika-senpai was practicing it.

I think you have to like someone to be able to do something like that.

If you don’t like it, you wouldn’t even think of doing it in the first place.

But I guess she would do it for the money.

I think she probably went home in the first place.

I wonder if she is not here after all.

But betraying someone because you don’t want to be betrayed is no better than that guy.

If she had come, I would apologize. In all Sincerity.

I ran all the way to the station, and the station came into view.

Oh, that’s Reika-senpai.

Running as fast as I could.

“Reika-senpai. I’m sorry!”


“I didn’t trust my senpai at all, and I thought that she would betray me, so I betrayed you. In fact, I still have my doubts about you.”


“I’m really sorry.”

“Yuya-kun, I waited for you. I thought you would come.”


“So, Yuya-kun, who made me wait, you’re going on a date with me now.”

“Yes… Ehhhhh! That’s it?”

“… And also about Yuya-kun.”

“… Yes, I am. I’m fine with today, but I’m soaking wet and so are you, even if we are going on a date. Can we do the shopping tomorrow?”

I was in such a hurry to get out of the house that I seemed to have forgotten my umbrella.

“Then let’s go to Yuya-kun’s house.”

“No, that’s not good.”

“I waited for you so long that I have been soaked.”

“I understand.”

And we were going to my house.
