imply said what was on his mind.
However, for Mio, those were not words she could ignore.

“……T-That’s… You say that to everyone, don’t you, Toma-kun…”

Mio said in a small voice, turning her face downwards.

“N-No, that’s not true.
I just honestly thought that way myself.”

“……Toma-kun, you should really fix that about yourself.
You’ll make a mistake and misunderstand if you keep being like this… “

“Misunderstand…? What do you mean?”

Touma tilted his head, furrowing his brow as if he didn’t understand the meaning.
That’s why he could say lines like “You’ll make a great wife” …

(This is dangerous.
Extremely dangerous…)

Mio thought from the bottom of her heart.

If Toma said that to another woman, she might feel that he had feelings for her.
If that happened, the woman might start to pay attention to Touma…

“… Toma-kun.”

“Yes?”

She couldn’t let him create any enemies.
She had to eliminate that possibility in advance…


Mio made a small fist to show her determination.

“That’s why you’ll make a wonderful husband, Touma-kun.”

“Huh!?”

And she said it.
Like Toma, without realizing…with courage…

“You’re thoughtful, kind, and you even put up with my selfishness, making time for us to be together.
There’s no way someone like you wouldn’t make a good husband.”

“H-Hold on… M-Mio-san…”

Toma was starting to lose his composure.
Mio thought this was her chance to push a little harder.

“I want a husband like that.
Of course, I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants a husband like that, right, Toma-kun?”

“I-I understand now… I’m sorry about earlier…”

“That ‘I understand’ is in response to what I said, right?”

“Yes…”

“In that case, you can’t say it to any other woman, okay? Got it?”

“Yes…”


Toma gave a shy reply.
He seemed to have finally realized that he might have given off the wrong impression.

(Alright!)

If Toma had understood her, it was the best outcome she could have hoped for.
Overwhelmed with joy, Mio secretly swung her arm in celebration.

“ーーTo think that you have such thoughts about me…”

“Wha–!”

“You’re thoughtful, kind, and you even put up with my selfishness, making time for us to be together.
There’s no way someone like you wouldn’t make a good husband.”

This was Mio’s true feelings.
She had unintentionally conveyed her honest thoughts that she would never normally say.

“Stupid Toma-kun…you…tricked me…”

“H-How could that be!? “

Silence fell between them.

“Please forget about it…the thing that happened earlier…”

“I-I’ll try my best…”

Silence continued to engulf them.
A burning embarrassment overtook them both… Toma and Mio spent some time together but couldn’t face each other for a while…
