r that, it was a good time to continue window shopping, and once we were about to choose a Christmas cake, we decided to take a restroom break.

I returned to the restroom before Ageha, and looked around at my surroundings.

“Hmm, that’s…”

He squints at the store on the other side of the stairwell.

The store, which looks like a general store, is selling winter clothes for winter under the guise of a sale.

Scarves, earmuffs, knit hats, and… gloves.

I remember that Ageha said she had lost her gloves.

Here, where the visibility is good, it is easy to find her when she comes back.

I found myself walking forward.

I passed through the passageway connecting the atrium and approached the general store.

There is a small crowd at the front of the store, and I enter the sale section, taking care not to hit my body.

A variety of gloves for men, women, and kids are on display.

There are even a few gloves lined up that look like they would look good on Ageha.

Well, I owe her a debt of gratitude for taking me out of my depression, and it’s Christmas Eve.

I pick up one of the gloves in the line and stare at it intently.

It is a pair of gloves knitted mainly with navy blue and white yarn.

These would look better on Karen.

Unlike the Ageha, she has a calm atmosphere, so these gloves should suit her well.

I gently put the gloves back where I found them and grabbed another pair.

Mitten gloves, mainly pink.
The wrists are covered in fuzzy white fur, with what looks like rabbit ears poking out of them.

I try to imagine Ageha wearing them.

… It would definitely look good on her.

I should probably take more time to compare other products and make my choice, but I’m sure that Ageha will be back soon.

I stood in line at the checkout counter with a pair of bunny-ear gloves in my hands.

“Is this a gift for your girlfriend?”

The waitress asked me, smiling smugly.

I nodded vaguely and said, “Yes, well,” because I knew that if I was at a loss for an answer, it would only create a strange atmosphere.

As I left the store and headed for the restroom, I saw Ageha, who had already returned, looking around anxiously like a puppy that had been abandoned.

“Sorry to keep you waiting.”

“I’ve been wondering where you’ve been, Haru-kun.
I was worried that you had gone home.”

“I wouldn’t do that.”

When I call out to her, she smiles in relief, and then immediately purses her lips in a snarly manner.

I approached her again, apologizing, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

“Hmm, Haru-kun, did you buy something?”

She asked as she noticed the paper bag in my hand.

Without answering her question, I gently handed the paper bag to her.

“What?”

“Open it.”

“Uh, yeah…”

Puzzled, Ageha rummaged around in the paper bag and pulled out what was inside.

Carefully peeling off the wrapping, a pink glove appeared.

“This is…”

She stared at the gloves she took out as if she were dumbfounded, and then immediately raised her head to look at me.

Her eyes were full of anticipation and joy, waiting for my next words.

Chuckling at her obvious reaction, I gave a small nod.

“Well, it’s a present, but it’s a cheap one, so it’s okay if you lose it.”

Being the sloppy person that she is, I’m sure she will lose it next year.

I told her in advance that it was not that expensive, so she did not have to worry about it.

Then, she shook her head.

“I won’t lose it! …I’ll never lose this one.”

“—-“

Hugging the gloves tightly, Ageha says in a strong tone of voice.

Then she looked up and put on a big smile.

“Thank you, Haru-kun! I’ll take good care of it.”

“… yeah.”

Once again, I saw Ageha happily clutching the gloves to her chest, and I was truly glad that I had bought them.
