The greatest treasure in life is a best friend.
We share the same hobbies; we’re always on the same page, and we can say whatever we want and do whatever we want.
When something extraordinary happens, our happiness is doubled. When something sad happens, we can share it and make it half as bad. Sometimes we may get pushed around occasionally, but even that is enjoyable.
In some extreme cases, if you have even one person in your life whom you can call your best friend, your life will generally be manageable. A best friend is someone who can make you feel that way.
Then, what should you do if you have feelings for your best friend…of the opposite sex?
Sugisaki Yuuma and his best friend, Kamishiro Yui, were on their way to school together.
Her white hair stands out from the rest. Her height is relatively short for a high school student. A few days ago, Yui would have adored Yuuma like a puppy, but ever since a while ago, she has been looking in the opposite direction of Yuuma and not him.
But it wasn’t because of an argument or anything of that sort.
Yuuma and Yui were holding hands together. Moreover, they were lovers.
Yui seemed to be embarrassed by it, and even her ears were red.
Yuuma’s heart was pounding, and he felt like it was going to burst. His face was hot.
“……If you’re embarrassed, do you want me to let go?”
When Yuuma suggested that, Yui shook her head from side to side.
As if to say, “I don’t want to be separated from you,” her small, soft hand clung to Yuma’s hand tightly.
──He was aware that Yui liked him. However, Yuuma still doesn’t know what kind of “Love” Yui harbours for him.
Originally, Yui was the type of person who was unprotected or defenceless towards the opposite sex. Although she was introverted and withdrawn, she didn’t mind performing skinship with those close to her.
So, is the fact that I’m holding hands with Yui also a part of our skinship as friends? Or…is she aware of me as a member of the opposite sex?
However, there’s one thing that I can say, Yui is super cute and adorable.
As he squeezed Yui’s hand tightly, Yuuma reminisced about the days since he met Yui till now.
