decided to go shopping at a large shopping mall five stops away by train.

It’s Christmas Eve, so it’s a perfectly normal place to go, but since she is not exactly a girlfriend, it’s probably just as well.

“I’m not wearing gloves.”

I was curious because she was constantly sliding their hands together.

I looked and saw that her slender fingers were slightly reddish.

“I lost the gloves I was using last year.
You see, I’m pretty sloppy.
My… sister kept hers.”

“Why are you talking about Karen now?”

“No, no, I saw her wearing gloves today… ah.”

After saying that much, Ageha froze.

Then she glanced at me, peeking to see my reaction.

She is probably concerned about the fact that Karen is going on a date with Saijo-kun today.

It’s not good to make a younger girl care about you…


“Huh? Oh, hey… that was close.”

I took the warmer out of my pocket and threw it to her, and after fumbling it a bit, she managed to put it in her hand.

Then, she tilted her head curiously.

‘I’ll give it to you.
I’m not cold.”

“No, no, no, Haru-kun, you said it was cold just now.”

“Did I say that?”

“You said…”

Come to think of it, I think I did.

I thought I was dressed up, but it backfired.
I am so embarrassed.

When I turned my face away in shame, she giggled.

“Then, thank you.
I’ll take it, okay?”


When I looked, I saw that Ageha was happily pressing the warmer she had received against her cheek and saying, “It’s so warm!”

“Hey, Haru-kun.”

Suddenly, she reaches out her hands and presses them to my cheeks.

I try to protest what she is doing, but I can’t speak properly.

Then, she broke into a smile.

“Hehehe, I’ll share the warmth with you…”

“Is this sharing…?”

Though it is true that my face is warm.

“I have to return the favor.
Haru-kun gave me a pocket warmer.”

“Well, I’ve gratefully received it, so I think it’s time you let me go.
I’m… a little embarrassed.”

“Oh, I’m sorry.”

As I said this, she pulled her hand away and took a half step further away from me than she had taken a moment before.

She looked back at her actions objectively and turned down her face, red to the ears.

…This kind of thing that she sometimes does strange things with vigor is very typical of Ageha.

It can be said that this is a charm that is unique to Ageha and not present in Karen.

Well, it’s hard for me to be a part of it.

From far away, I could hear the sound of a train running on the tracks and the sound of a railroad crossing.

The coldness of the air that I had felt earlier, which had been sticking to my face, had disappeared due to the heat rising gradually from within.
