Ch 1 Broken heart one week before Christmas

The white breath I let out dissolves into the air.

With Christmas coming up next week, my childhood friend Karen Aizawa called me to the riverside in my neighbourhood.

Sitting on a gentle slope, I suddenly looked next to her.

“So, what did you want to talk about?”

Karen, who was sitting on the ground in the same way as I was, staring up at the blue sky in a daze, was startled by my call and began to fidget with her cheeks, looking embarrassed in some way.

“… I’m kind of embarrassed to report this to Haru-kun again.”

She glances at me and then quickly looks away.

Hearing her voice, filled with shame, yet bouncing with joy, I secretly sigh that I knew that was the story.

She is unaware of the cruelty of telling this report to me, of all people.

Because she is insensitive.
She is insensitive, but kind.

She is trying to tell me with the best intentions from the bottom of her heart, not to hide anything from me, whom she has known since kindergarten.

She has waist-length wet-feather black hair and a well-defined bridge of her nose.
I had already heard that Karen Aizawa, who is famous for being one of the prettiest girls in the school, had a boyfriend.

“Um, you know…”

Karen, who had no idea that this was the case, opened her mouth with an expression she had never shown me before.

“Ah! I’m going out with Saijo-kun.”

In addition, he has a model-like style and face.
He has countless female fans.

There is no way I can win…

If there is such a difference, perhaps I will give up once and for all.


I lifted my gaze, which had once been downcast, to look at Karen, and she was staring at me with a face like a bright red apple.

She seemed to be waiting for me to say something.
She was waiting to hear what her childhood friend, Haruto Kanda, had to say.

… Don’t even think about me.

For a moment, I felt something flare up in my chest, but I almost swallowed it.

Since Karen conveyed her good intentions to me, I must also return the good intentions.

I must never hurt her with my selfish feelings.

So, I opened my mouth to offer my blessing.


A muffled, inarticulate voice spills out.

It was a pitiful voice that could have been snatched away by the winter winds in a single breath.

I closed my mouth once.

Don’t dwell on this forever!

I livened myself up and opened my mouth again, this time slowly.

“Congratulations, Karen.
