Kano and her insecurities.
Kano struggles with her shaky confidence.
Finally...... The couple takes the relationship to the next level!!!
However, if I will expose that I am dating someone right now, Mother will definitely urge me to get married. I want to avoid it.
Mother, who was silently regarding me, asked to confirm.
“Then, it’s okay, right? This matchmaking—”
“St-... Please stop!! I’m already dating someone right now......”
Noticing my slip of tongue, I pressed my mouth with my hands.
When I looked at Mother and Uncle, they were staring at me with surprise.
"But, it was indeed too hasty to marry someone as soon as you met them. Kano-san, I think that you are confused and do not believe me. I have reflected on that point."
Yes, that's right! The moment the mist in my heart has cleared, I looked at Hazekura-san with a relaxed expression. Seeing me in that state, Hazekura-san smiled broadly.
"And so I have one suggestion…… For the time being, why don't we get to know each other?"
"In other words, why don't you date me first without the intention of marriage?"
Trembling, I desperately asked him who looked calm. He then got closer, and a sweet, deep voice entered my ears.
"I want to marry you."
I-I can feel his breath on my ears……!! This person is doing it on purpose, absolutely on purpose……!! I instantly touched my ears and managed to speak.
"L-like I said! I feel bothered when you suddenly say that."
Insistently reacting due to agitation, I inadvertently closed my eyes tightly, not wanting to stay here any longer. Having been conscious of him behind me, my heart have never stopped pounding.
Ah, I can no longer stand this situation……!!
When I was about to bump into that person, I tried to avoid and lost my balance. However, the man was able to grab my waist.
"I'm sorry. Are you alright?"
Hearing that voice, I felt the chill run down my spine.
It was a low, a slightly sweet and gentle voice—
A man's broad chest was displayed before my eyes, wearing a priest's robe made of black silk and a brown loop-shaped stole, with the collar of a white robe underneath can be seen. When I suddenly raised my eyes, a man with a good-looking face and neat short hair was looking down at me.
