“Then why are you putting this in front of me?”

“Make a guess.”

“I don’t want to make any guesses Sensei.”

I turned my head to the side and sweat started forming on my forehead.

My homeroom teacher is holding out the marriage certificate to me.
She had already filled out the “Wife-to-be” column.
Only the “Husband-to-be” column is blank.

The student guidance office falls silent for a while.

Eventually, I could no longer withstand the silence, so I turned my face back to the front and looked through the marriage registration certificate once more.

May I ask you to explain it to me?”

“……Actually, I have to get married before I turn 30.”

I carefully listened to what Sakuramiya-sensei was saying.

“If I can’t get married by then, my parents will forcefully decide my marriage partner.
So in the current situation, I am somehow looking for a marriage partner.”

“Why do you have to get married?”

“It’s a family rule.
It’s somehow equal to not having human rights.
I was actually offered a blind date when I was 25, I had delayed it somehow previously and they agreed to it.
But if I couldn’t decide by the time I was 30 they would choose someone out of my free will, that’s why I decided to find a marriage partner.

Every family has its own rules and regulations.

Even Sakuramiya-sensei’s family is no exception.
However, it is somehow complicated when compared to other families.


“By the way, when is sensei’s birthday?”

“September 3rd.”

“Isn’t it tomorrow?”

“That’s right…”

“But it’s still too early to give up.
Let’s search even harder from now on.
I’ll do my best to help you.”

“…….Ah, well, it’s not like that.”

“Alright, once you’ve decided that, we’ll go to the front of the station to encounter your fated one.”

“You know what to do, don’t you, Segawa-kun?”

I got up from my chair, struck a gut-pose and showed my motivation.
However, Sakuramiya-sensei, who may have sensed that my enthusiasm is a fabrication of my own, says that to me in no uncertain terms.

With a waterfall of sweat on my face, I quietly sat back on my chair.

(TL Notes : Someone give this guy a bucket, damn.)

I am telling you.”

“No, no, no, I’m a high school student……a teacher and a student……why me?”

“I’m asking you to take responsibility.”





The memory of three months ago resurfaces in my mind.

Certainly from guilt at that time, I had said, “Please let me take responsibility.”

I thought that my remark had been forgiven as a result, but I never thought it would be dug up like this.

In fact, that day, because of me Sakuramiya-sensei was not able to attend the marriage activity party.
If she had attended the party without any incident, she might be living with her husband right now.

“But I… I’m only seventeen.
Marriage is supposed to be at the age of 18, right?”

My birthday is on June 11th.

There are still ten months until I am old enough to get married.

The time limit for Sakuramiya-sensei to get married is tomorrow.
No matter how much I think about it, we won’t make it in time.

“Rather, that’s my main goal.”


“I’m going to tell my parents that I want to marry Segawa-kun, and I will ask them to call off the arranged marriage.
But since Segawa-kun is seventeen years old, he is legally unable to get married.
I will take advantage of this and find a marriage partner before you turn 18.
…….This is the only way out.
Please help me!”

“What is that……?

I plumped down on the chair and let out a heavy sigh and somehow I felt weak.

“Sensei please don’t carry the story in such a way as to carry on misunderstandings.
I thought I had to marry you.”

“We are a student and a teacher, you know.
We both are almost ten years apart.
I’m not going to ask you to do that.
But I did think I was talking in a way that sounded like that.
I didn’t mean to mislead you, but I’m sorry, okay?”

“It’s fine, it’s also my fault for misunderstanding you.”

“I wonder if I can ask for your cooperation sagewa-kun.”

Sakuramiya-sensei looks at me with upturned eyes and tilts her hands slightly to the right.

“If that’s the case.
In short, I have to pretend to be your fiancée, right? And as I’m indebted to you, I’m willing to do that much after all.”

“Really?! Thank you very much!”

Sakuramiya-sensei stood up from her desk in joy and grabbed my hands excitedly.

I have little immunity to women, so my cheeks flushed red.

As I was trying to pretend to be calm, Sakuramiya-sensei stared at me with her big eyes.
She tilted her head to the side and said,

“Well, I’m sorry once again, but can I ask you to come over to my parents’ house now?”
