“Ahh! Sheesh, You are too soft towards the opposite gender, Raika-senpai!”
I, Maria Mint got agitated upon remembering the previous scene while walking through the game center.
Unable to see Raika-senpai after Tenka-san returned from the photo booth, I went looking around the center and found myself with Charlotte-senpai……….
No, putting aside and giving up at the thousand steps.
“How shameful it is to be flirting at a public place like this!”
Although they are not clinging and intimate like RuiRui-san.
How to say this…..The atmosphere between them are impressive! It was pink in color!
Charlotte-senpai was hugging a matching soft toy with a smiling face,
Which was very cute.
Holding back the urge to shout, I screamed in my mind.
This is jealousy.
This is my personal ugly emotion.
That’s why, to be really angry at Raika-senpai would be barking up the wrong tree.
I have know that he has a kind nature long ago.
Because he was the first one to reach out to me when I was crying in the church’s facility.
And I knew deep in my heart that the thought of monopolizing that kindness is too selfish.
(But I’m still jealous!)
Raika-senpai said that he will take the same thing from the crane game for me.
However, that somehow feels like 「I’m the second one」so feeling vexed, I unintentionally refused.
For a moment, I honestly wanted.
Wonder why a person’s heart is unable to have what it wants.
Including mine, as well as others.
I don’t have the feeling that it go according to plan.
If even people can’t go their own way………
Even though I wanted to convey this hidden feelings I have to Raika-senpai.
I will stop for once.
Let’s calm down a little.
I got excited and thought of something stupid.
I’m Raika-senpai’s parther.
It’s my duty to fully support him.
The island where we are on is a heretical island where the gods of destruction inhabits.
And in such a place, we are in the middle of fulfilling the mission given to us by the church.
If I’m influence by foolish thoughts and made a mistake, it will lead to Raika-senpai’s death.
That’s something I have avoid at all cost.
Even if have to die, I must not let him.
Just like during training.
It would be the best for him.
To prioritize his existence.
In some cases, even if I have to abandon myselfーーor this feelings, I will dissipate myself as an existence for Shinsen Raika.
I’m supposed to have come to this island with that wish and with that vow.
Don’t let it disturb your head and mind.
I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly.
Then, I released the useless heat from my body.
Okay, I’m fine now.
“That’s right, I need to buy juice.”
I left at that time and realized what I said as I looked for the vending machine.
If I’m not wrong, it should be at the back as seen from the main entrance.
I head towards there, totally relying on my memory.
The sound of the can dropping from a vending machine could be heard from my direction of travel.
It seems there was no mistake in my memory.
That’s fine though.
*Clang* *Clang* *Clang*
(Looks like there is someone who is buying a lot)
Judging from the continuation of sounds, that person seems to be buying all of it at the same time.
Is what I thought at first.
*Clang* *Clang* *Clang* *Clang* *Clang* *Clang Clang Clang Clang Clang*
This is too much no matter how you look at it…..
The sound of cans dropping is gradually becoming strange.
Seems like someone is being quite the absurd buyer.
(Hope that person in front of the vending machine is not a weird one……)
While thinking that, I finally arrived where the vending machine is visible. Shortly after that, there was a small girl over there, contrary to my expectations.
No, there are only children who are fifteen and older and adults on this island.
So even if she is as small as an elementary school student, she is probably a respectable highschool student.
Considering all that, she really did a mess though………
“Uhh, it’s going to be clogged up with cans.”
I pointed to the outlet of the vending machine and told the girl.
“This is the second time today. He said the same thing to me, but if you want, you can take it.”
Just by saying that, she turned in front again.
Then, she continued to buy a new juice while the outlet is still packed with cans.
As a person living in Japan, our modesty is a national traits. Her behavior is not something that I can imitate.
However, it’s in my nature to not ignore it and leave.
I sighed a little and while removing the cans from the outlet, helping her in return.
I hope to return back as soon as possible and stop Raika-senpai and Charlotte-senpai from flirting anymore.
While thinking about it, I picked up the cans one by one.
Suddenly, I felt a gaze and looked up.
The girl who was pushing the buttons on the vending machine like crazy just now, is now looking at my face.
“W-What is it?”
She didn’t answer.
We stared at each other silently.
The girl’s eyes was ——- that’s right, it was beautiful enough to be suck into it.
It was deeply colored to evoke an indescribable fear at the same time.
(I’m being overwhelmed…….!?)
I became petrified like a snake glaring at a frog.
“I hate artificial objects to a certain extent, but it’s not a bad resource.”
As she said that, the girl suddenly touched my head——
“You look good for tonight’s sacrifice.”
——–My consciousness has stopped right there.
