Keeping the Cute Suzuka to Myself
It’s been a day and a half since we’ve been monitoring Yuka-chan.
Father-in-law and mother-in-law, who went on a sudden trip, came back.
They went to a hot spring, and gave me a souvenir of a hot spring bun and bath salt.
Tomorrow, I have a lecture from the first period.
We were getting ready to go back to our apartment when someone said,
“I’ll give you this!”
Yuka-chan gave me a drawing.
A portrait of me and Suzuka would have been the standard, but Yuka-chan drew this for me.
It was a drawing of the sun and the moon on a sheet of drawing paper.
It was art with a strong theme.
“That’s very artistic. Will you be a famous artist in the future?”
“I’m going to be your daughter-in-law in the future!”
“Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. You know, you can tell those cute things to your real father, right? See, he’s looking at me and Yuka-chan with so much regret.”
My father-in-law looked at me with envious eyes and I followed up, but sadly, Yuka-chan looked at my father-in-law’s face for a moment and then said innocently.
“I want my father! I don’t want your father!”
Father-in-law looked rather sad.
How can he not be sad when his own daughter rejected him, and I followed up further, smiling bitterly.
“You don’t say that, okay? Father-in-law is working hard for Yuka-chan, okay?”
“I see. But I’m going to marry my father!”
I was struck by the cuteness of Yuka-chan’s spoiled childish smile, and while stroking her. As I was playing with her, Suzuka, who was getting ready to go, came over to me laughing.
“You cheater~! Oh, no. Yuki is going to dump me.”
“Don’t be so gloomy.”
“Nfufu. I understand.”
A deliberate quarrel unfolds.
Yuka-chan, seeing this, was amused and stood in front of Suzuka.
“Oto-san is mine!”
Suzuka laughed as she held her in her arms and stroked her hair with a smug look on her face.
“Is this the bad little sister who tries to get someone’s husband?”
Suzuka is an older sister who adores Yuka-chan, who is pleased to be squeezed.
As I watched her, father-in-law spoke to me.
“I’m sorry for suddenly asking you to take care of my daughter.”
“No, we are relatives in a manner of speaking, so please don’t mind it.”
“I am very happy to hear you say so, Yuki. But let me ask you one thing, if I may meddle.”
“It’s better not to have children when you’re young. Suzuka is a child born when we were young. There are things you can only enjoy when you are young. I for one would be happy if you and Suzuka continue to get along well with each other, including that.”
He was worried.
If we were boyfriend and girlfriend, I am sure they would not have worried so much.
I really feel the weight of marriage these days.
But although it is heavy, it is not an unpleasant weight at the moment.
Maybe, though, there will come a time when I will also feel the unpleasant part of this weight…
“Thank you for your concern.”
“Isn’t that obvious? You’re also my precious family. Yuka. Let’s stop playing with your big sister and play with your father.”
He approached Yuka-chan, who was being so cute and playful, and started to play with her instead of Suzuka.
I wonder if the day will come when I will be like that.
“Well, I think it’s time for us to go home.”
“I think so. Let’s go home.”
Suzuka and I left the Mita residence.
On the way back home, we talked about the lessons we learned during our vacation.
“There are things you can only do now.”
“I guess so~. I realized that there are a lot of things I won’t be able to do once we have a child.”
“It’s only a day and a half. Even then, I realized that having a child would limit a lot of things we could do.”
“I’m sorry, Yuki. Children will have to wait for now.”
“Don’t talk like I’m the guy who wants kids right now.”
“Eh~, you don’t? Oh, you are interested in the act of making a child, right?”
She teased me like a guy who loves that kind of thing.
Although she teases me like this, she’s weak against counters.
Well, let’s see how cute she is today.
“I said, “Until my right hand heals.” … I still can’t stand it. So, you better brace yourself for today. I’m going to do this and that, okay?”
“Eh, ah, huh, today?”
She turned bright red and looked embarrassed by my words.
Suzuka, who teased me herself and was a mess when I got back at her.
She’s cute, so I left her alone and didn’t tell her I was joking and said, ‘… Today’. Ugh, I enjoyed watching her say, ‘Ugh, I’m not ready…’
“If Yuki is so inclined, that’s fine. I’m going to go to that … Are we really going to do it?”
A muffled voice.
It’s also good that she is embarrassed but not rejected.
Damn, I really like this kind of thing too much…
“I’m just kidding. What are you taking seriously?”
“Kuu~~~ Yuki’s an idiot! You were enjoying watching my reaction again, weren’t you!”
She got angry.
But it’s natural that she hated my constant teasing like this.
Let’s try to follow up with a proper response.
“You’re too cute with your reactions. If you weren’t cute, I wouldn’t have done it.”
“Well, it can’t be helped. If you go too far, I might run away from home!”
“I’ll have to find out what’s acceptable.”
“I won’t do it there anymore, so please don’t do that. Ahhhh. I’ve been left out in the cold! I might run away from home!”
She deliberately tried to make an appeal to run away from home.
I’m going to tell her something so that she won’t run away.
“If you run away from home, our parents are going to be very annoyed, aren’t they?”
“I’m sure they’ll be annoyed… But, why don’t you just tell me honestly that you don’t want me to run away from home?”
Somehow, I understood what Suzuka wanted me to do.
It’s like she wanted me to say something direct and clear to her.
I can’t help it. If she wants me to say something.
It’s pretty embarrassing to say it on the street, but I’ll say it.
“I love you. So please don’t throw me away, okay?”
“Heheh. I see. I can’t help it. Oh, but don’t say such embarrassing things on the street!”
I said it because you seemed to want me to whisper love directly to you.
Isn’t it terrible not to say it?
Well, I’ll forgive Suzuka for her cute face smiling with satisfaction.
“Let me say something bad.”
“Eh~, well, it’s okay. What?”
“The thought of having a baby and having you taken away from me is just too much. For now, let me keep you to myself.”
“Heheh. Yuki likes me too much, don’t you? I can’t help it… I’ll take good care of you for now.”
Suzuka is so adorable.
I want to throw away all kinds of male shame and be spoiled to pieces.
Then, Suzuka and I, who enjoy just walking together, went home together.
