「Andou-kun, good morning」

「Morning, Asakura-san」

「…………」

「…………」

It’s here, White Day! The day when boys hand out sweets full of their feelings, in return for the Valentine’s Day gifts given to them by the girls…… Until now, I was not particularly aware of White Day because I always received chocolates from girls. But this time, it’s different! (Asakura)

「…………」 *glance*

「…………」

Ufufu…. Last Valentine, I gave a handmade chocolate to Andou-kun, you see! Even a loner like Andou-kun will have to return a gift in response to the Valentine’s gift from the school’s number one beauty, right? (Asakura)

「…………」 *glance*glance*

「…………」

Andou-kun, I wonder when you’ll give me your white day gift ♪ (Asakura)

First Period

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」 *fidget*fidget*

「…………」

Andou-kun, are you perhaps, embarrassed? But school is just getting started, so I will not rush you. (Asakura)

Second Period

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」 *glance*glance*? *glance*glance*?

「…………」

Mou.. Andou-kun! Are you so embarrassed that you can’t even move when class has ended? I already know you have a white day gift prepared, so hurry up and give it to me already♪ (Asakura)

Third Period

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」 *fidget*fidget* *glance*glance*?

「…………」

Wa, wait….. Andou-kun? Are you still not going to move? It’s already the third period and half of the school day has ended, you know! Certainly, I understand that giving me, the most beautiful girl in school, a white day gift must be embarrassing but….. isn’t it enough time for you to prepare yourself already!? (Asakura)

「…………」 *clatter!*

「Eh!?」

Andou-kun finally got up! (Asakura)

「Ah, ara, What’s…」

「Toilet…」

Rattle rattle~ ~ shut!

「The..matt..er..?」

Eh, what about my white day gift? (Asakura)

Fourth Period

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」 *Sta——————re!

「…………」

Wait, wait! Waaaaaaait! Andou-kun, you already prepared my white day gift, right! You really bought it, didn’t you? It’s already lunch break, you know? Because I thought you would give me a white day gift, I could not sleep well! Because I believed! Because I believed that you’re not the kind of person who would forgot this kind of event! Right? Right!? So you don’t have to be embarrassed anymoreeeeeeeeeeee! (Asakura)

「…………」 *Sta——————re!*

「………… Let’s go to the cafeteria」

Rattle rattle~ ~ shut!

「…………」 *Slump*

Fifth Period

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」

「…………」

Fuuh… I get it. If I appear impatient, it will only make him nervous, won’t it? Therefore, by deliberately ignoring Andou-kun, it will make it easier for him to speak with me… (Asakura)

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」

「…………」

「Oh, It’s already the last period…」

……Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! (Asakura)

After School

「Stand up, bow, Thank you very much!」

「Thank you very much!」

「Alright, take care on your way home~」

「…………」

「…………」 *rumbling*

Fuu…. Andou-kun, you’re finally rummaging around your bag after school has ended. Good grief, Andou-kun is really good at teasing me…. But, this time my white day gift will finally…… (Asakura)

「Asakura-san.」

「Yes!?」

It has comeeeeeee! (Asakura)

「See you. Bye.」

「—-Eh, ah… Yeah, bye.」

*di-ng do-ng da-ng do-ng*

「…………」

—-…E,eeeeeeeh? What just— happened? Andou-kun left? What about the white day gift? D-Don’t tell me… there aren’t any? (Asakura)

「Whaaaaaaaaaaaat!」

After that, because I was so overwhelmed with shock, I left the classroom with a fuzzy head….. I opened my locker and only then, did I notice ‘it’. (Asakura)

「Chocolate… Destroy. Valentine… Destroy. The world… Just collapse. This whole world, I will once again… huh? There’s something in my locker. A big bag and… is this a letter? 」

『To Asakura-san. Thank you for the valentine chocolate.

This is the return gift. Please eat it. From Andou』

「A, Aaaaaa……. Andou-kyun!」

Finallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I got Andou-kun’s white day gift! I did it! The gift really existed! (Asakura)

「Hnngh mou! Andou-kun, you should have given me the white day gift personally. I wouldn’t have noticed it if you put it in the locker! Ufufu~ I wonder what’s inside…」

『Po●potayaki』[1]

「…………」

That day, the first white day gift I ever received was unexpectedly delicious…. (Asakura)

***

「Haa.. Asakura-san did you notice the thing I placed inside your locker?」

To think that Asakura-san would be the first one to arrive in class.  Today is White Day, so I thought I’ll head to the classroom first thing in the morning and put the gift inside Asakura-san’s desk. That way, I won’t be seen by the other classmates… If a loner like me was seen giving a return gift to Asakura-san on white day, they would know that I received chocolate from her and then all the boys in the school will be after my blood. Asakura-san would be troubled as well if it stirred up improbable gossips between her and me. That’s why I don’t have any choice but to put it in her locker, but…. (Andou)

「Is it really okay to give her something like this? But my sister said….

『Aah? A return gift for Valentine’s? Onii-chan… Really, even if you’re misunderstanding something, you still can’t take it too seriously. Because the chocolate you received is probably just an obligation chocolate that every boy in your class got a share of, right? If onii-chan prepares a return gift that’s too expensive, you will get shunned by the girls in your class, you know? From someone like onii-chan, that Po●potayaki you like so much would be enough as a return gift.』

…something like that, so it’ll be alright… I think? 」

Because, Po●potayaki really is delicious! (Andou)
