Cute little bugger
No lectures at the university.
I asked her out on a date, but gave up because money in my wallet was tight.
So, unfortunately, today is the day off when we can’t have a date.
What Suzuka and I do is to improve the uncomfortable parts of the apartment we have started to live in.
“I’m thinking of putting some kind of plastic tray under the TV rack to hold small things.”
“I’m thinking of using it as a place to put all the documents.”
“Hmmm~, so both?”
The shelf area under the TV rack is quite large.
It can be used as a place to put papers and also as a place to store light small items.
Thus, we decided to adopt both of our ideas.
Suzuka fills in her list of things to buy at the 100 yen store on her memopad, which includes a case for storing papers and a small accessory box.
Suzuka said that it would be much more efficient to find out what we need before we go there.
“Next is the entrance! I’m thinking of putting a small case to hold the keys. You know, so we don’t have to wonder where the keys are.”
“Oh, anyone can come in the front door and steal the keys, don’t you think?”
“Then a desk in the living room?”
“It’s also out of the way to put them on the desk when you’re taking your meals. After all, where did some go? but it’s better to keep the keys to yourself and not leave them anywhere.”
Suzuka growled a little dissatisfied.
I guess they are very eager to make a key storage space.
Although I think it would be better not to have one, the secret to a happy marriage is to be considerate of each other.
“I think we should buy a small accessory case so that when we find a convenient place, there will be a place to put the keys.”
“Yeah, I’ll just buy a cheap one from the 100 yen store anyway!”
I don’t deny her opinion.
I can’t get used to it.
Because I have often clashed with her because we have something to say to each other.
In the past, I would have strongly denied that there was no need for a key storage space.
I don’t mind the relationship that we have with each other, and I have a complicated feeling about it.
“Yuki~, you can bump into me more, okay?”
“What’s wrong with you all of a sudden? Why did you say that?”
“Because you don’t want a key storage space, don’t you? But since I said I wanted it, you made a compromise so as not to deny it. You know what, I’m going to make this clear.”
“I don’t mind bumping up against you like we did when we were childhood friends, okay? I don’t mind you telling me things honestly, okay? I don’t dislike the old Yuki either.”
Suzuka understands me very well.
And I, well, I said, with a bit of a scowl on my face, before rephrasing.
“Well, I can’t find a place to put my keys, even if it’s only 100 yen. We don’t need to buy more accessories than necessary.”
“Wow~, honest guy~! Then me too! Yuki said so! But I still want it! It’s my first time living away from my parents, and I want to be particular about everything!”
“You’re going to end up with a garbage mansion full of things you don’t need, aren’t you?”
“Bbb~~ I’ve already decided. Even if Yuki stops me, I’ll buy it!”
“If you don’t use it and it starts to gather dust, will you apologize to me?”
“Okay? I’ll apologize to you then! But Yuki will also apologize if I buy a accessory case and don’t waste it.”
Talking passionately about unimportant things for nothing.
This is exactly the kind of situation that could not have happened if couples had tried to understand each other, which is the key to a happy marriage.
But for me and Suzuka, who have grown up arguing like this, I know very well that our current argument is not something that would cause a disagreement.
We argue without hesitation.
Recently, we have been refraining from this kind of behavior in order to be considerate to each other.
“Haha, no. I knew it, it’s fun to argue with Suzuka about things that don’t matter…”
“Me too. I’ve been refraining from arguing about unimportant things with Yuki like this lately, but I still like to fight with Yuki like this~.”
And I’m not really mad at you, you know? She smiles at me as if to say that.
I knew it was totally different from when we argued as childhood friends.
After an argument, when our eyes met, we would look at each other in a deadly atmosphere and say, “Ah?” and harass the other for no reason at all.
“Oooh. I’m not serious either, you know?”
“Ehehe. Oh, but you don’t have to buy a accessory case for your keys! Don’t forget what I said?”
“Don’t you forget?”
“Oh, that’s right. If you can use the accessory box I buy properly without getting dusty, for Yuki to say to Suzuka-sama. ‘I’m sorry. I’ll never speak out of turn again’. I’ll have you apologize to me!”
Suzuka looks down on me in a high-pressure manner.
To be honest, before, I would have normally thought it was absolutely disgusting, but now, I’m afraid I’d be willing to do it.
No, seriously, I can only see a future where Suzuka will laugh and be happy with my actions, and I can do it any number of ways.
But that’s not the case here.
I am sure that the response she wants from me is something like this.
“Then, I too, Yuki-sama. I’ll never disobey you again, Yuki-sama. I’ll get you to say that, all right?”
“Of course! I spent a lot of time arguing with Yuki, didn’t I?”
“No, it was you who started it…”
“Eh~, Yuki, you’re the one. If you don’t approve, I’ll do it this way!”
Gyu~ She pulls my back tightly.
If it is usually a hug-like embrace, what she is doing now is a piggyback-style embrace.
Ryoka pulls me to her back like a child, puts her arms firmly around my neck, puts her legs in front of me, and hugs me strongly.
I move my body around and try to get her to quit.
But she still didn’t seem to move away from me, so I opened my mouth and told her
“You seem to like being a clingy little bugger.”
“Oh, my~. It’s horrible to talk to your wife like that. But even if you say that, I won’t quit hugging you like this~”
Suzuka desperately clung to me and interfered with my body movement.
At first, I tried to move my body and shake her off, but she is so cute that I can do this as much as I want
But I wanted to see more cute Suzuka, so I was mean to her.
“Have you gained weight? I feel like you got heavier…”
“Mmm~, here comes the mean things again. Ahhhh. Then, I’ll make a tasteless diet meal from today.”
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Suzuka isn’t fat. She’s not fat.”
“Hmmm~, then I forgive you. Hey, hey, what do you want to eat today?”
Then I played a little joke with her, who pulled my back.
Then we both realized that we hadn’t made any progress in improving the apartment, so we began to think hard about various things.
