4557. Plus—Hiyo was helping me out until just a minute ago; if you’re gonna thank anyone, thank her.”, “Yeah; she looked exhausted, so I told her to head to bed.”, “In Hiyo’s room with her.” When he’d been living at Yokozawa’s place, Sorata only ever curled up in bed on cold nights; but here, no matter how sweltering the night, he always slept with Hiyori. She’d mentioned mainly working the register, but today she’d left her station and was perhaps going to be helping out with the autograph event. “At least I got a nice nap out of it.” He’d given in to the sleepiness that had stolen upon him the moment the lights went down and had spent most of the viewing in dreams. “Hey, don’t sit around with your hair all wet—you’ll soak the sofa.”, “You’re starting to gripe at me as much as Hiyo…”, “Whose fault is it I feel like I have to?”. “…Yukina-kun’s so rude to me.” Peals of laughter erupted as Katou slumped in place, dejected. I didn’t wanna leave her downstairs by herself, so I dragged her along with me. Being the leading large-scale book seller in the city, Books Marimo employed a number of workers, including part-timers. We’ve been waiting for you!”, “Sorry for that, Katou. “Who the hell said that? The slick slide of fingers over flesh revealed how wet he was now, and while he hated to own up to it, he had to admit: Kirishima’s fingers were amazing. You really helped me out.” Indeed, the reason the shop had agreed to go through with it had been wholly because he’d been able to secure a firm promise of cooperation from the author regarding autographed books, illustrations to be used for goods, and new work excerpts—and working all of that into the schedule of the moody, dizzyingly busy author had been solely Kirishima’s doing. Then let’s go to the planetarium together!”, “I don’t mind—but have you asked your papa?”, “Yup! It was mortifying now, remembering how he’d let himself get wasted to try and escape the pain—but he consoled himself by reminding himself that the fact that he could feel that way period was in itself a sign of how much he’d recovered. Thank you for always taking care of my papa… Umm, I brought some treats for everyone, so please enjoy them!”.

Apparently she’d seen me in the shop before, but I was kind of shocked to find out she recognized me.”. His suit jacket, draped across his left arm, hadn’t touched his body once the whole day, and while he was now free from the blazing sun with evening setting in, the humidity still made it difficult to breathe. Hiyori grew frantic when he showed her his watch. At Kirishima’s prompting, Hiyori nodded strongly. 4 Chapter 2 septemberscans. In his right hand, he held an apple pie that he’d bought at a patisserie, and in his left he toted a plastic grocery bag laden with cooking ingredients. Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai, Vol. At the sight of her chuckling with shoulders shaking, Yokozawa ground his teeth. Maybe I’ll take a vacation too—hit up a summer resort. The unease and awkwardness always reared its head first, and he wound up not being able to go through with it. I saw eeeeverything from the very top floor down! Well then, I’ll take Hiyori-chan and be off! Iokawa is first introduced prior to Hiyori Kirishima's birthday party, when he escorts his nephew, Yuuto, to give her a birthday present. But—since you’re here, tell her yourself.”. Yokozawa’s cat Sorata had been the reason he’d started spending so much time there; when Sorata had been sick, Hiyori had somehow been charged with looking after him, which had subsequently led to Yokozawa also finding himself in their care. Sounds a little strange, doesn’t it? Against the Gods Ch. Yokozawa’s steps were slower than usual along this path he was now well familiar with, weighted down as he was with hesitation and apprehension. She opened and closed her mouth again several times before eventually steeling herself and raising her head. C’mon—Hiyo’s waiting up for us, so let’s get going.”. He remained silent in tacit affirmation, and barely caught the quiet chuckle that followed. ♥♥ LEEME ♥♥ WIIIIIIIII!!! “No, actually you had great timing!” With thanks given, everyone else took their seats again. How long are you going to keep bringing that up?”. 3 Chapter 1 septemberscans “Wooow, it sure is crowded!” Kirishima Hiyori commented in awe at the crowd as soon as she stepped foot into the theater. He furrowed his brow at the insinuation in Kirishima’s words. She said she wanted to thank you, didn’t she?”, “…Oh…” At his comment, Yokozawa suddenly remembered—when Hiyo had charged into the room, Matsumoto had been asking if he was free for something. Using his innate skills, he drafted expert-level displays for the storefront, and the POP displays as well were composed of his enthusiastic thoughts and recommendations—it wouldn’t be a stretch to say there were many titles that were selling as well as they were solely due to Yukina’s recommendations. “You’re here early, Henmi.”, Henmi’s expression turned sour at the tone of admiration in his voice. “Nothing~” Kirishima stood, a mysterious little smile on his lips, then reached forward and ruffled Yokozawa’s hair. Henmi grew agitated at the single word from Hiyori’s mouth, and without even looking, Yokozawa could tell clearly that everyone was looking at him. His parents had probably mostly given up on their son who’d never had a serious relationship in his life. “Well, I was on my way home from Marimo, so I guess it wasn’t all that much of a coincidence.” He’d been a bit unsettled when she’d spoken his name, but on hearing her explanation, he could understand it. Plus—Hiyo lived here; he could hardly be expected to get it up under such conditions. After having his long unabandoned feelings soundly put to an end, Kirishima had appeared just as he was settling in to feeling sorry for himself. Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai, Vol. You’re the only person thick enough not to notice the way she was mooning over you. And now…on to the show! Please go to the planetarium with Hiyori-chan. “Hey, don’t be rude—there’s no way I’d do something as stupid as resort to violence. Kirishima fed more force into the fingers stroking Yokozawa, leaving Yokozawa to slouch forward instinctively, and he reflexively dug his nails into Kirishima’s arms wrapped around him to steady himself in the position. He gave up on voicing his complaints, instead tossing out with a sigh, “No, nothing.”. “The story setup was actually pretty interesting; wasn’t dull like in the past, and had a nice soundtrack, too.”, “Does Hiyo think it’ll be useful for her research project?”, “Yeah; she’s going off to stay with her maternal grandparents from next week, so she’s gonna do some stargazing using everything she learned today.”, “She seems to not be worried about it; excited as anything to ride an airplane, even. 3. If they’d never run into one another in that bar that night when Yokozawa had been trying to drown his sorrows…he wouldn’t be here frequenting Kirishima’s home like this—and when he thought about it like that, it left him feeling…strange. Only a few days before, he’d grown unable to bear it anymore and shifted his wardrobe to short-sleeved shirts for the summer, but walking around outside for any length of time had him dripping in sweat. “Excellent work today, Yokozawa-san. You took wonderful care of us today.” While he didn’t feel tired, his throat was dry as a bone, as he hadn’t had a moment’s rest to have a drink since the event started. Yokozawa gratefully took the proffered paper cup from Okada. Sure, as a working adult, it was hardly a rare thing to smile amicably with your clients and coworkers, and if Yokozawa let himself get worked up over every little thing, there’d be no end to it—and yet, despite knowing this, his heart still wavered in such moments as now. This must have been what they meant by ‘digging your own grave’. “Geez, can’t you do something about your inability to properly judge your own self-worth? Hiyori ran over to pick up Sorata, who’d been curled up on the couch, and wobbled on unsteady feet into her room. “Oniichan!”. In that respect at least, Hiyori was much more level-headed. They were headed in the same direction, so Yokozawa didn’t really see the point, honestly, in meeting up halfway there—but it would be pathetic having to deny it when the guy inevitably teased him with a smirk, What, too embarrassed to head home together?, and he was left feeling undecided.
