Suzuka Is Cute Even When She’s Sulking
Investigating charming gestures, Suzuka practiced them on me.
When I revealed that I knew the whole process, Suzuka blushed and became embarrassed. In the midst of her cuteness, as she mumbled, I embraced her to prevent her from escaping, just like always.
As a result, she sulked a little.
“Do you know? Even without violence, it still counts as domestic violence.”
It was just a slight sulking.
It was evident she didn’t harbor deep resentment towards me. However, that didn’t mean I could take it lightly.
I thought about trying to improve Suzuka’s mood, who seemed a bit troublesome when sulking, but she was too cute, and I couldn’t bring myself to do it.
“If you complain, will you lose? Just hugging my shy wife.”
Considering the neighbors, she refrained from stomping my feet on the ground.
She just growled.
Indeed, I made sure not to let go of Suzuka, who was growling, to prevent the sulking from escalating.
“Well, let’s sleep.”
It was late at night.
It was time to sleep, so I lay down on the bed.
Suzuka also lay down next to me, but…
She lay a bit further away than usual.
It was a retaliation for the humiliation I caused her.
“If you don’t want to sleep with me, there’s a sofa, you know?”
Despite having a large sofa where one could sleep comfortably, she chose to lie on the bed, leaving a gap intentionally.
ven though she was deliberately ignoring me, I didn’t feel bad about it.
I covered myself with the blanket as usual and turned off the lights.
“Hey, don’t hog the blanket.”
I turned my body once, and she took the blanket covering me.
The double-sized bed had a slightly small blanket for two people.
When she took it, more than half of my body was exposed to the cold air.
“I don’t care. I’m using the futon as usual, okay?”
“Are you planning to make a move? Well then, I’ll do the same.”
I reclaimed the blanket that Suzuka had taken.
This time, it was Suzuka’s turn to be thrown out of the blanket.
It was taken again.
And I took it back.
It wasn’t really a fight over the blanket, so I only felt the fun of it.
“Geez, you’re so stubborn.”
“You could at least let your wife have the blanket, right?”
“Yeah, yeah. If that’s the case, I’ll do this.”
Currently, Suzuka occupied more of the blanket.
Even if I tried to take it back, the action seemed to lead to a never-ending cycle. I decided to stop.
“It’s your fault, isn’t it?”
I moved closer to Suzuka.
I attached myself even more tightly, as if not willing to let go.
If I do this, at least the area of the blanket on my side will be somewhat better.
“It’s because you come and snatch the blanket. Can’t help it, right? By doing this, even with a slightly smaller area, it fits perfectly.”
“Well, can’t be helped.”
She reluctantly gave up some of the blanket.
But, you know…
“Is it okay like this?”
“Y-Yuki, if you do it…”
She was a little harsh.
But the fact that she doesn’t mind being close to me and doesn’t tell me to move away is just too cute.
“Yeah, because I want to.”
“T-that’s right. Well, I don’t particularly want to, but if Yuki insists, I guess I can’t help it. Hehe.”
A slightly leaking, sweet sigh.
I can’t help but laugh at the part of her true feelings that show through the sulking act.
“Hmph. Your sulking act is falling apart.”
“Ehehe~ Is that so?”
“Yeah, yeah, completely acting all sulky and cute. If you keep doing that, even if you tell me to let go, I won’t.”
“Then, let’s act all sulky. Stupid! Annoying! Useless husband!”
While still attached, I reached out to Suzuka.
She was sleeping with her back to me, but she turned her body around to face me.
“I caught you!”
“Hey, you deliberately did a sulking act to get caught, so what are you saying?”
“Eh, I don’t know? It’s not an act. I’m really sulking!”
“…Can I ask you something for a moment?”
“What is it?”
“Was it unpleasant when I hugged you while you were feeling embarrassed?”
I know it wasn’t an act to the extent of making her hate me.
However, it was indeed an unpleasant act.
Honestly, not wanting to be disliked by Suzuka, I couldn’t help but feel sorry as I asked.
“It was unpleasant, but I didn’t hate Yuki to the point of despising him. Well, you’re just overly worried. There’s no way I’d hate him for something like that.”
“I understand, but still, I want to be on good terms with you for a long time…”
“No, don’t tell me you like me in that natural way.”
“The current Yuki is just too likable. I know I won’t be hated, but when you ask me worriedly, it’s really no good. You seem so cute.”
Trying to hide her relaxed expression, Suzuka lowered her face.
Watching her like that, I could immerse myself in a happy feeling.
Having someone who likes me despite my rude language and rough behavior makes me incredibly happy.
By the way, what is the reason Suzuka likes me?
“Hey, what do you like about me?”
“I don’t know. Recently, you’ve improved, but you still use vulgar language and act carelessly. Honestly, when we were childhood friends, I thought there was no one else like you.”
“That’s a harsh way to put it.”
“Hehe, sorry about that. But you know, I don’t know why, but I liked you. I thought about it when we got married, and I already feel like I love you.”
“But I’m not satisfied with that. Tell me clearly what you like about me.”
I wasn’t satisfied with Suzuka’s vague answer, so I asked her again.
I wanted to know exactly what she liked about me.
“You’re such a spoiled person.”
Suzuka smiled a bit troubled, and after a short silence, she took a breath and clearly told me.
“I don’t know, so I’d be happy if you continue to do things that make me like you in the future!”
“That answer is unfair.”
“But I really don’t know. Besides, wouldn’t it be troublesome if I asked you to tell me the things you like about me?”
“No, it wouldn’t be troublesome. I can tell you as much as you want. Like your smile, it’s incredibly cute, and various other things.”
I playfully listed many things I liked about Suzuka.
She looked at me with an exasperated expression and said deliberately.
“Don’t you like me too much, Yuki?”
