n’t think so.”

 

“Isn’t that right? Haruto-kun, you’re mean.”

 

“I’m sorry.”

 

“I won’t forgive you if you don’t do something very sweet for me instead!”

 

When I said that, Mikoto-san grabbed my hand in a way that said, “I’m not going to let you get away.”

I’m in trouble.

What should I do?

What would be the most loverly thing to do?

 

“Um, do you want a hug?”

 

“That’s what we did at lunch today.”

 

“Or patting your head.”

 

“That’s tempting… but isn’t that less loverly than a hug?”

 

“Hmm.”

 

I turned my head.

What could it be?

 

“Kissing… is no good, right?”

 

I mumbled to myself.

I thought about it for a moment this morning, but it was out of the question.

 

I don’t think it’s the kind of thing you do when pretending to be lovers.

 

“K-kiss?”

 

Mikoto-san’s face turned red as she looked at me.

I think it’s no good after all.

 

“Mikoto-san probably doesn’t want to kiss me, so I don’t want to do it.”

 

“No, I don’t mind.”

 

“Eh?”

 

“If Haruto-kun wants to do that, I’m totally fine with it.
I’m not afraid of it.
If we show it off in front of everyone, I’m sure no one will suspect a thing, so let’s practice, shall we?”

 

Mizukoto-san said this in an enthusiastic voice and looked at me expectantly.
Her blue eyes were slightly moistened and her cheeks were upturned.

 

It seems that she really means that it is okay to do it.

 

“No, but, as expected, that’s …”

 

“If you don’t, I won’t forgive you.
Haruto-kun will do what I want, right? I want Haruto-kun to kiss me.”

 

“Yes, but… but…”

 

I hesitated and looked at Mikoto-san’s fresh and soft lips.

I would be lying if I said that Mikoto-san’s proposal is not attractive.

 

I may never be able to kiss such a pretty girl again, being desired by such a pretty girl.

 

I made up my mind.

I hugged Mikoto-san’s shoulders, knowing that she had said it was okay.

 

Mikoto-san’s eyes widened and her face turned bright red, as if there was nothing more she could do.

 

“Ho, are you really going to do it?”

 

“Because Mikoto-san wanted me to do that.”

 

“Uh-huh.”

 

Mikoto-san closed her eyes and surrendered herself to me.

All that was left was for me to kiss her.

 

I gently approached Mikoto-san’s face.

A little, my lips touch it.

 

“What’s that?”

 

Mikoto-san murmured curiously.

I moved away from her.

 

Mikoto-san opened her eyes and rubbed her cheek.

I smiled.

 

“I thought it would be wrong to kiss you on the lips.”

 

“So you kissed me on the cheek?”

 

“That’s what I did.”

 

Well, as expected, we are not really dating, but I can’t casually kiss others on the lips.

Mikoto-san glared at me in frustration, and after a while, chuckled.

 

“I was disappointed in my expectations.”

 

“You were expecting it?”

 

“Do you have to ask me that?”

 

“No, I take back the question I just asked.”

 

“I’ll answer it.
I would be happy with a kiss on the cheek, but I would be even happier if you kissed me on the lips.
I’m hoping that you will do that for me, Haruto-kun.”

 

“Well, Mikoto-san hates men, so I thought you didn’t like that sort of thing.”

 

“That’s okay, because it’s you, Haruto-kun.
I’ve never done that with anyone else.
Have you ever kissed a girl, Haruto-kun?”

 

I shook my head.

Of course, I never did that with Kaho.

 

“So, when we kiss each other, it’s our first kiss, right?”

 

“If we ever do that, yes.”

 

“I… I think it would be nice … I’d be happy if Haruto-kun would think so, too.
I would be happy if you came to think so too, Haruto-kun.
When that happens, I want you to kiss me properly.”

 

Mikoto-san smiled very happily.

 

Hearing Mikoto-san’s words, I also realized something.

Considering Mikoto-san’s words and actions since this morning, I came to a conclusion.

 

I have been under the misconception that Kaho liked me for a long time, so I am not sure if I can be confident in my own senses.

 

Maybe Mikoto-san doesn’t just want to pretend to be lovers.

 

Maybe she really likes me.
