was given a rectangular piece of paper and it was a ticket to an amusement park.

“Eh? Why me?”

“I am ashamed to say that I, Mizuna Shinozuka, won the beauty contest.”

She raised her right hand in front of her forehead and saluted.
I know she won the contest and the winning prize was a ticket to the amusement park.

But I was more surprised that she handed it to me.

“No, why did you have this to me? Shouldn’t you have given this to Saeki-san.”

Saeki-san… she is a girl who often hangs out with her.
According to what I have heard, they have known each other since elementary school.

I think that amusement parks are definitely more enjoyable when you go out with good friends.
But why did she gave this to me?

“I thought maybe Segawa-kun might be a little brokenhearted, and doing something fun would make him feel better.”

“I’m glad you went out of your way to care about me.
But I’m fine, so I’m going to give this back to you.”

I returned the ticket to Shinozuka-san.
It seems that she thought I was depressed after getting rejected so she gave this to me to cheer me up.

“… I wonder if going to the amusement park with me would be boring for you.”

“Huh? No, it’s not like that.”

Going to an amusement park with Shinozuka-san would not be boring at all.
She has a cute face with a bright personality.
There are many boys in our grade who won’t miss that chance.

I just don’t have the right to get this ticket.

I just don’t have the right to accept it.

“If that’s the case, then get me that ticket!”

“But I’m not really heartbroken or anything.
You don’t have to worry about it…”

I shook my head and tried to show that I wasn’t heartbroken using certain gestures.
But suddenly a hand was placed on my shoulder.

I turned around and there she was, a girl with long black hair.
It was none other than Saeki-san, her best friend.

She stared directly at my eyes and said,

“Actually, Mizuna was dumped by the guy she had a crush on the other day.
So she is heartbroken too.
She wants to go to an amusement park with Segawa, who is in the same situation, to relieve her sorrow.”

“Oh, I haven’t been dumped yet…”

“Shut up, Mizuna.”


Saeki-san was very aggressive with her and she shrunk when scolded.
That expression of hers was also cute.

Anyway, in this situation we certainly look like comrades in arms who are dumped by someone they like.

“Anyway, that’s how it is, Segawa.
Now you have to decide about it.”

“Eh? Let me think…”

After saying her point she quietly leaves the classroom.

I looked at the amusement park tickets which were in my possession.
I think it’s rude to give something back to someone once handed to us with their consent.

“You don’t have to worry about what Yuka said.
I am not forcing you to come with me, okay? And it’s you Segawa-kun that’s why…”

Shinozuka-san’s cheeks flushed in panic.
The corners of my mouth loosened at the sight and I replied,

“Thank You.
Then I’ll gladly take it.”


“Well, but are you coming with me? I don’t have the guts to go to the amusement park by myself alone.”

“Yes, yes, of course! When are we going then?”

“Well, let’s see…”

Shinozuka-san leans forward and checks her schedule.
Seeing her happy expression, someone might have misunderstood that she likes him.

Fortunately, I have a reputation for having low self-esteem, so I don’t have to worry about being misunderstood.

I pulled out my phone and checked my calendar.
The only thing I have scheduled for the moment is this Saturday.
Other than that, I don’t have anything special to do.
But it’s a little hard to have plans on Saturdays and Sundays in a row.

“I’m basically fine anytime after next Saturday.”

“Really? Then next Saturday is fine?”

“Yes, it’s okay.”

I’ll contact you later with the detailed schedule.

When I nodded, Shinozuka-san smiled broadly.
She thanked me for accompanying her and after saying, ‘See you later.’ she also returned back to her seat.

I followed her with my eyes and looked at the ticket in my hands to the amusement park once more.

I never thought I would be going to an amusement park with Shinozuka-san.
I put the ticket in my wallet, finished my preparations, and left the classroom.
