Shamer

CH 2.1

met someone who changed me.”

It was a female student who was in the same class as Kiritani at the time.
He said she changed his life.

She was a person with strong habits who came to school every day wearing a parka, which was prohibited by school rules.

“But she was someone who would never bend what she thought was right and never conform to others.
She was always herself.”

As he got to know her, Kiritani also decided to be himself.

And he became a teacher to help students like himself in the past, even if only a little.

“There is nothing wrong with being a hermit.
What I want to tell you, Kenji-kun, is that even if you are shut in, it is important whether or not you are doing what you really want to do right now, whether or not you are living your life as yourself.”

Well, this is also from someone who changed because of others… Kiritani said.

From what I’ve just heard, it seems that this teacher actually wants me to go to school.
He was different from the teachers I’ve had in the past.

Living your life as yourself… Those words were stuck in my mind.

“But I don’t really know what it means to be yourself.”

I still don’t trust Kiritani.
…I’ve come to want to talk to him a little bit, though.

He might be able to help me with this situation…That was what I had hoped.

“Don’t worry.”

A warm voice came back through the door.

“I’ll help you, and we’ll find something that’s you together.”

Kiritani, or rather — Kiritani-sensei — continued to say this to me.

Hearing his words, the expectations that I had just held grew stronger and stronger.

“Are you really going to help me find myself?”

I asked as I opened the door.
As I had expected, Kiritani-sensei was weak-looking.

Despite his appearance however, he had an air of dependability about him.

On the other hand, Kiritani-sensei was a little surprised to see me.
I think it was because I suddenly opened the door and because I was dressed like a shut-in with shaggy hair and shabby clothes.

“Of course.
I’m your homeroom teacher.”

Kiritani-sensei answered my question with a smile.
It was a reassuringly kind smile.

“Umm… Can you come back tomorrow?”

Then, I naturally said those words.

“Sure.”

Kiritani-sensei replied immediately without hesitation.

Seeing him like this, I thought to myself.

Perhaps, this person would really—

 

And at this moment, my life started moving again.
