Chapter 20 – It seems that JK Idol-san is interested in zoo (part 6)



After leaving the zoo, I slowly let go of Sakurazaki's hand.

“Fiuh, we managed to go unnoticed throughout the day.”

“Of course, thanks to my disguise.”

“Yeah, maybe so.”

Perhaps because of the overly childish impression, no one would realize that she was Sakurazaki Nako.

Well, it's enough for today.

“Sakurazaki, even though it's too soon, that's all for today.”


Disappointment was clearly visible on Sakurazaki's face.

Well, enjoyable times always feel like they pass by quickly, so there's nothing we can do.

“…But, we still have time.
Let's go somewhere else.”

“We can't.
On a Sunday like this, anywhere will surely be crowded and risky.”


“Can't means can't.”

“Don't you want to be with me…?”


“I still want to be with you, Himahara-kun.”

Sakurazaki said that with a voice filled with sadness.

I have to make Sakurazaki understand.

I placed my hand on her shoulder and started speaking.

“Sakurazaki, listen…”

…My current feelings.

“Do you know why I'm so cautious?”


“Because I want to be with you for a longer time.”


“If there's any strange gossip, it will be the end for us.
Do you understand? We won't be able to play together anymore.”


“So, do you understand what I'm trying to say?”

Sakurazaki lowered her head and nodded slightly.

“Thank you for understanding, Sakurazaki.
You're amazing.”

Himahara-kun, I'm sorry for asking something selfish.”

Almost on the verge of tears, Sakurazaki grabbed onto the sleeve of my shirt.

“Come on, I'll walk you to the station.”


Enjoyable times always pass by quickly.

I felt the same.

Today, spending time at the zoo with Sakurazaki was truly enjoyable with all my heart.


“Sakurazaki, see you again.”

“…Yeah, see you again.”

Although we parted with a smile, Sakurazaki's smile felt far from genuine.


Suddenly, I called her to stop.

There was no particular reason why I did it.

“…Can I call you tonight?”


“Oh, maybe you're busy?”

“No! I want to! I'll call you as soon as I get home!”

It was the usual smile from Sakurazaki.

It felt as if I understood why Sakurazaki always wanted to make phone calls.

The desire to talk, even if there's no important topic.
