“Yes, I’m Mi-kun’s girlfriend~”

Kaede clunged closer to my arm and said something which was factually unfathomable.

In front of her incomprehensible actions, my head went blank for a moment.

Sakuramiya-sensei looked at me and Kaede alternatively.

“So, after all you had a girlfriend.”

“No, that’s not true.
What are you saying all of a sudden, Kaede?”

“Hmm… I’m just joking.
Or is it something inconvenient if it’s misunderstood by Sensei?”

Kaede gives me a sharp glare with a bored expression on her face.

It is said that a man cannot understand a woman’s heart, but seriously I really can’t understand what Kaede is thinking at the moment.”

“Well, there is no inconvenience in particular.”

“Then it’s fine.”

“No, it’s not fine.
Sensei, she is my cousin.
She was interested in the high school’s cultural festival so she decided to tag along with me.”

“Cousin? By any chance are you Shi-chan’s sister?”

“Ah, yes.
Yes, I am.”

“If you put it that way, you do look alike.
Like the eyes are similar!”

When Sakuramiya-sensei raised her hand as if she was contemplating, I agreed to her words and she looked at Kaede with curious eyes.

“Eh? How do you know about Shi-chan?”

“That is…”

Instantly both mine and Sensei’s expressions stiffened and we started sweating profusely.

Then Sakuramiya-sensei glances at me.

“Eh, well a few weeks ago, Shi-chan was lost because of my carelessness, so Sensei was the one who found her and looked after her when I was searching for her.”

“Yes, that’s right.”

I was impatient because of the sudden question, but the very first meeting of Shi-chan and Sakuramiya-sensei had nothing to do with me being her fiancé.

I have also gone on a date with Sensei and Shi-chan was also tagging along at that time, so I was oddly nervous.

“Hmm, I see.
Thank you very much for taking care of my little sister when she was lost.”

“It’s alright, no worries.
By the way, how long will Kaede-chan be attached to Segawa-kun, you both are surely not dating, right?”

Sakuramiya-sensei tilted her head and asked curiously.

Since it turned out in the end that we were not dating, Kaede who was still clinging to my arm was utterly strange.

That’s right.
Mi-kun and I are good friends.
Are you jealous?”

”No, I’m not jealous.”

“Of course you are.”

“No no, what are you even saying?”

Kaede had a gentle smile on her face, but her eyes were not smiling at all.

What is this feeling? I can’t help but think that Kaede is somewhat hostile toward Sensei.

Sakuramiya-sensei beckoned to me, perhaps realizing the discomfort.

“I have something to talk about with Sakuramiya-sensei, so can you please leave.”

“No, I don’t want to.
Let’s go, I want to eat some honey toast.”

“No, seriously, what’s wrong with you? Is there any problem?”

“No, there are no problems at all.”

Kaede turned her head away with an unpleasant attitude and tried dragging me by my arms along with her.

Following her movements I also went along with her.

After taking few steps she halted and looked back at Sakuramiya-sensei.


She puts a finger under one of her eye and sticks her toungue out as if she was provoking Sensei.


“Ugh, what are you doing Kaede? Ah, I’m really sorry for her foolishness, Sensei.”

I can’t really keep up with Kaede’s actions, and apologized to Sensei for the time being.
I am not really one who liked to pick up fights, but…

And while I was scratching the back of my head while apologizing, Sensei approached us hurriedly.

“—Wait a minute, did I do something wrong to Kaede-chan?”

When Sensei asked her anxiously, Kaede’s cheeks twitched as she made an awkward smile.

“No, it’s not like that.
I would like to thank you for your guidance and encouragement, but as a student and teacher, you must maintain a proper distance from each other.”

“Eh? What’s with that…”

“Because Mi-kun likes younger girls.”

“Ah, I guess you are mistaken about our relationship, Segawa-kun and I are not like that to begin with.”

“Why do you think so?”

“What are you doubting, Kaede? Does it look like Sakuramiya-sensei and I are dating?”

It’s true that we are in a strange relationship where I have to pretend as her Finacé in front of her parents, but does it really looks like wr both are dating each other?

Kaede looked up at me with her eyes half-open in frustration as she pouted.

Then, Mi-kun, from now on you will be my lover.”

“Eh? What?”

“Yes, make me your girlfriend.”

“That’s a no go.”

“But you don’t have anything to do with Sakuramiya-sensei, and it’s for practice so that it will help me whan I get a boyfriend!”

She suddenly reconsidered her statement, and her face went beet red due to embarrassment, that was really bold coming from her.

But I wonder why she wanted me to act as her boyfriend all of a sudden?

“But why?”

“Well, that was my intention from the beginning, I just didn’t had the time to say it.”

“Is that so?”

“Eh, really? Are you sure?”

“Why are you so surprised when you were the one brought it up?”

I don’t know what Kaede is thinking, but she wants me to act as her boyfriend.

I had already played the role of a fake finacé, so acting as a fake lover with my cousin wasn’t really a big deal for me now, so I didn’t outright declined it.

“Well then, from now on Mi-kun is my boyfriend.
Sakuramiya-sensei, I’m going on a date with my boyfriend at the school festival, so please excuse us.”

As Kaede wraps her arms around mine, she gave a gentle to Sensei i wonder why she is so belligerent towards her, this is their first time meeting with each other right?

“Let’s go.”

Saying that Kaede started pulling my arm.
But before we could take a step forward Sensei grabbed the sleeve of my shirt which forced us to stop.


“… Ah, that’s right.
Wait a minute.”

Panickingly, she let go of my sleeves and started to look for something in her pockets.

“Well, I’ll give this to Segawa-kun and Kaede-chan.”

“A golden ticket, right? Is it okay for you to give it to us?”

Currently, the ticket Sensei was holding was only valid for the Cultural Festival.

In order to not let the students exchange money directly, the festival committee came up with this method of converting the money to vouchers.

“Yeah, I have some errands to run, so I won’t be having any chances to use it.”

By ‘errands’ I guess she means the beauty pageant competition.

“Well, if it’s like that, then I’ll gladly take it.”

After handing over the ticket Sakuramiya-sensei with a smile on her face returned on her heels.

“Thank you.”

“It’s alright.
Well then, see you later Segawa-kun and Kaede-chan too, enjoy your date.”

I waved my hands back to Sensei who was also doing the same.

Kaede seemed to be lost in her own world, as she had a dreamy look on her face, but in the end she also waved her hands slightly.

“Oh, so you’re using money to lure out Mi-kun.
Then I guess I have to protect him with all my might…”

Keade was whispering something like that along the lines.

I was thinking of denying it at first, but when I remembered that I too, was financially indebted to Sensei, my expressions stiffened.

Somehow, Kaede seems to be suspicious of my relationship with Sensei, could it be that she once saw me and Sakuramiya-sensei while we were on a date?

Well, even if I think about it, I can’t get an answer, so I’ll have to avoid mentioning it directly because I might dig my own grave.
