zoo, had packed lunches, tried various foods at Yanesen Ginza…
It felt like we were just eating all the time.

However, when I'm with her, it feels different from when I spend time alone.
I feel like I myself am also discovering new things or experiencing something refreshing.

“…But now I'm bored.”

While lying down leisurely, my phone suddenly received a call.

“Himahara-kun, are you still awake?”

“…If I'm not awake, who will be annoyed by receiving a message tomorrow morning?”

“Hehe, aside from that.
I'll be appearing on an information show tomorrow afternoon, so watch it, okay?”

“Eh, do you understand about politics and stuff?”

“That doesn't fit the idol image! I'll be introducing a popular cosmetic product.”

“Oh, I see…
Well, I'm bored anyway, so I'll watch it.”

Tomorrow afternoon…
I feel like I won't be able to wake up late on a Sunday, so maybe I should record it.


“Oh yeah, there's one thing I want to tell you, Himahara-kun.”

“What is it? The thing you want to tell me.”

“Himahara-kun, how about we have a showdown?”

“Eh? Showdown?”

“Next week, the exam results will be announced, right?”

“That's right.”

“If I can beat you in at least one subject, are you willing to fulfill one request for me?”

“…You know that's impossible, right?”

“Of course! And if I can't beat you at all, I'll fulfill any request you want.”

“…So you have confidence that there's a subject you can win in?”

“That's a secret.
So, are you up for it?”

Of course, after returning home, I checked my exam results myself and had the confidence that I wouldn't lose in any subject.

It may not change the existing results, but it makes things more interesting.

“Alright, I accept your challenge.
But there's one condition.”

“A condition? Okay.”

“We have to agree on one 'request' to give to other if you or I win.”

“…Okay.
So, tell me your request, Himahara-kun.”

If I have to ask something from Sakurazaki, hm…

“Give me your photobook.”


“Huh? Why…? Why should I give my photobook to you…!”

“It's not that, but you keep nagging me to buy it.
Wouldn't it be better if you just give it to me?”

“Just buy it, it's around 3000 yen.”

“Do you know how expensive 3000 yen is for a high school student! Anyway, this is my request to you.”

“Fine…
I'm glad you're asking for my photobook.”

Since the topic of photobook came up, Sakurazaki always writes “Eh, have you bought my photobook?” at the end of every message she sends.
So, for me, it just became a way to let off steam.

If I win, I'll save 3000 yen from this month's allowance.

“Then, what's your request?”

“…Uh, that…”

“What is it?”

“My request is that I want you to pat my head and give me praise.”

“…Is that really what you want? It feels like giving everything for just that is a waste.”

“You'll never be able to understand that feeling forever!”

Well, if Sakurazaki is satisfied with that, I have no complaints.

“Alright, our showdown will take place on Monday.”

“Make sure to bring your photobook.”

“I definitely won't lose.”

What is the true hidden meaning behind Sakurazaki's strong conviction?
