She stood in the kitchen and cooked me a homemade meal

After telling my parents about moving, I returned to the official residence with the bare minimum of belongings in hand, and as I set my belongings down in my new room, I heard Kiriha’s cheerful voice from the living room.

“Honey, dinner is ready!”

“Y-yeah.”

Somehow tickled, I appeared in the living room, thrilled by the happy and embarrassing exchange.

Then, the curry, spoons, and milk for two at the dining table were served by Kiriha.

By the way, they were not facing each other but were lined up on either side of the table.

“Normally, in this situation, don’t people eat facing each other?”

“Eh~? I mean, if you put them across the table, the distance between me and my honey would be too far, right? I like to be close to the people I like♪”

“D-don’t say something embarrassing every time.”

“I know you’re happy hearing me say that stuff so often.
Honey’s naughty.” +

“…”

I wasn’t going to win, so I quickly took my seat.

She immediately put her hips down on the seat next to me, and we were almost at shoulder distance from each other.

“Now, eat up, eat up.”

“I-itadakimasu.”

Prompted by a voice as sweet as a kitten’s, I picked up my spoon.

“Hmm, this curry is different from the one I usually eat.”

In our curry, the ingredients were so small that they were lost in the roux and not visible.

But in Kiriha’s curry, I could see red carrots the size of my thumb, yellow potatoes, and golden brown onions in various shapes and sizes.

It looked like a curry from a picture book, and it was very, very curry-like.

In addition.

“The roux has a thick consistency.
Isn’t curry roux supposed to be as smooth as water?”

“My curry is mixed with potato starch.
That way you can taste the flavor of the roux.”

“Heh, that sounds delicious.”

When I took a bite to try it, the difference was obvious.

All store-bought roux should have tasted the same, and yet, it was somehow so richly flavored.

And although I had an image of curry as half a soup dish when I chewed on the carrots, potatoes, and onions, I felt like I was eating rice, just like a bowl of katsudon, and it was very satisfying.

“How is it? Is it delicious?”

“Yes, it’s so delicious.”

“Thank goodness.
I’m glad you’re pleased.”

Kiriha’s smile was overflowing with affection.
It was a special smile that only her lover could see.
Her smile was too bright for me, a self-proclaimed single person who had come to realize that I was in fact just a loner.
To hide my embarrassment, I asked her about a new topic of conversation.

“I didn’t realize how much the taste could change just by mixing in potato starch.”

“That’s not all, you know.
It’s medium spicy, but by adding my honey, propolis, and royal jelly, I make it sweet and gently spicy on the palate.”

“What do you mean, ‘yours’?”

“Remember? My ability Hornet is to reproduce the ability of bees.
In addition to [beeswax] and [bee silk], I can produce [honey], [propolis], and [royal jelly] at will.”

“That’s amazing.
You don’t have to be in a combat unit to play an active role, right?”

“That’s impossible.
Even if I could produce them, I wouldn’t be able to make enough to fill a swimming pool.
I can’t even meet 1% of the domestic demand.”

“Well, then, only your relatives can eat your honey.”

“Yes, yes, it’s Honey’s prerogative.
And also…”

A whispered voice and hot breath poured into my ear canal.

“My kisses taste like honey.”

I bit my lip in a heady rush of pleasure.

Dangerous.
I realized that Kiriha was too dangerous for an adolescent boy.

Mobilizing all my rational senses, I turned my head and ran away, then I changed the subject.

“Come to think of it, why did Kiriha volunteer to be my bodyguard?”

According to Kiriha, she was the only one who volunteered.

I wonder why since even Kiriba would benefit more from being a politician’s bodyguard than mine.

“Because Director Sayuri told me about your personality.”

“What did she say?”

I asked, wondering if I had said something bad.

But Kiriha, with a kind expression on her face, said in a tone of voice as if she were recounting a memorable story.

“As I said at school, you trusted someone you’d never met before and received psychometry on your own, didn’t you?”

“Uh, yeah.”

“So I thought if you were like that, it might be okay with me.
I was still worried and tried to hide my abilities, but you didn’t mind that when you knew what I could do.”

That made me feel a little down.

Kiriha must have been bullied.

I knew all too well the cruelty of children.

Children always look for something to attack others, and if they did not find it, they would make up something to attack others to fulfill their self-aggrandizement.

It was obvious how they would be treated if there was a child with the ability of a bee.

I wanted to make her happy, and even if everyone else hated her, I wanted to be the only one who liked her.

Such feelings came to me.

“And you’re my favorite cute Mutsuri-kun.”

“I’m not a Mutsuri!” +

The feelings that had welled up were instantly erased.
I knew this girl was dangerous. Yes, it’s decided.

“Dessert is honey toast with lots of honey.
From now on, I will prepare something delicious every day for you, Honey, so please look forward to it♪”

“Ooohh…”

I just nodded my head.

There was no doubt that Harikiri Kiriha was a dangerous person.
But it was also true that she was cute.

Not only in appearance, but also in personality.

She teased me several times today, but she did her best to try to spoil me and to make me happy.

And I didn’t feel that she was acting or mocking me.

If such a girl were my girlfriend, I would definitely be happy.

But at the same time, I was worried about her.

“Hey, Kiriha, how about we all go somewhere together sometime?”

“Eh? If we’re going to go out, I’d rather go on a date with honey.”

“That’s fine, but since we work together and are both gifted, let’s get along with Shisae and the others.”

“Eh~, it’s okay, that kind of thing.
I’m OK as long as I have my honey.”

“Why?”

When I fearfully asked, Kiriha leaned her weight on the back of her chair and said in a bored tone.

“I’m a solo person.
I prefer to be alone.
It’s so stupid to crowd together, mount each other, read each other’s air, and attack anyone who disturbs the atmosphere, making a smug face and creating a hierarchical relationship.
These friends that everyone is talking about are just status-earners, right?”

Kiriha’s words were exactly like mine in junior high school, and they pierced deeply in my heart.

But that was why I wanted to help her.

I tried to persuade her, not denying her and staying close to her.

“On the surface.
But why would I want to be with a poisonous needle woman? Honey, you should be aware that she’s a good-for-nothing.”

The voice gradually turned sullen, and I probed to see if there was any other way

“Didn’t you tell Arima that she was a good person?”

“It was before they found out what I could do.
But that’s enough.
Honey, your girlfriend’s cooking is getting cold.”

“My bad.”

As I began to eat my curry, Kiriha’s face returned to a smile as she watched me eat deliciously.

Her face was truly happy, the kind of vulnerable expression that only her lover could see.

But my heart was filled with anxiety and worry, and the curry tasted half as good as it should have.
