<Decision of the goddess of destiny
“─ ─ Once again, congratulations on your acceptance, Masa!
Thank you, Aito!
With a bang, we lightly hit the glasses filled with juice, and Masashi and I shouted with joy.
Yes, today was the day of the announcement of the results of the university entrance exam that Masashi had taken.
The result was, of course, a pass. I accompanied Masashi to the announcement and when he came back with a big smile on his face, I was so happy that I hugged him tightly. I found myself hugging Masashi tightly. ……Well, after a while, I regained my composure, and we quickly broke apart, and there was an indescribable atmosphere.
Then we went to the nearest family restaurant to celebrate a little, and here we are today.
Since it was a celebration, I suggested we go to a more fashionable coffee shop, but Masashi’s opinion, “I don’t care where we go, I just want to be congratulated as soon as possible! but was rejected by Masashi who said “I don’t care where we go, I just want to be celebrated! Since the main actor said so, I had no choice but to nod my head.
“I’m really happy for you. I’m really glad that Masashi passed the exam.
He takes a sip of his juice and smiles with relief.
I have been teaching Masashi his studies since his second year of high school, and I am confident that I have seen Masashi’s efforts more closely than anyone else. That may be the reason why I was so happy to hear this good news as if it were my own.
“Well, I can finally feel a weight off my shoulders now. …… To tell you the truth, I was really anxious about the announcement of the acceptance today. What if I had failed? What should I do if I failed? What should I do to follow up with them? I mean, it’s a celebration…”
I don’t know why, I can’t think straight, I don’t know what to say anymore. But I can’t stop moving my mouth, and my face is already so hot from before…
“Yeah, Aito, you’re really gross.”
As if to say that I’m lame, Masashi smiles mockingly with the corners of his mouth turned up.
“Normally, I wouldn’t cry before the person who passed the exam. Just now he was even more overjoyed than I was and hugged me. It’s really like, how much more can you ask for?
“……? I cried and went to ………….”
The first time I noticed the moisture in my eyes, I hurried to wipe the tears away with my fingers.
I was so sorry. I’m sorry for creating a humid atmosphere in this festive occasion. I’m just really happy from the bottom of my heart. I think this is the first time I’ve ever been so happy for someone other than myself…”
He smiles to cover his tears and rushes to explain. Then, Masashi put on her cheekbones and looked at me with a calm expression for some reason… and the moment I noticed that, my voice suddenly stopped.
“Ah, I’m such a lucky guy. ……”
Masashi muttered to himself.
“He ……? What’s wrong with you all of a sudden?”
“Aito, do you remember? You promised me that if I passed the entrance exam without any problems…”
Masashi asks me with a testing smile, leaving me puzzled. What promise?
“……Ah, yes. Of course. If you pass the exam successfully, I’ll grant you one of your requests as a reward.
It was something that Masashi had suggested to me while I was teaching him how to study as usual. <<He said, “Hey, if I pass the exam successfully, I want to give you a reward, or rather, I want you to grant me one favor of mine, whatever you want. If it would motivate Masa, I agreed to do it.
Yes, that’s it. So, I’d like to use my rights right away, okay?
“Okay, sure. But please keep it within the limits of what I can do. I’m a junior, so it would be very helpful if you could say as much as a high school senior can do.
I put my hands together and plead with him not to ask me to do anything crazy.
“Well, I don’t know. I guess it’s up to Aito to decide if this request is reckless or not…”
Masa’s smile was filled with a hint of doubt.
But once I thought Masashi stopped speaking, he suddenly changed his demeanor and turned his face down, playing with his fingertips as if he was embarrassed.
“Oh, you know,…… what I want you to do for me is,…… to marry you,…… How about ……?”
“………… to …… get married?”
His mouth dropped open in shock and his expression froze. For a while, I couldn’t understand what the h**l was being said…
In front of me was Masashi, his face bright red, staring me up and down, waiting for my reaction.
Her luminous eyes shot straight through me. I couldn’t believe that he was teasing me like he usually does.
“Ke, marriage, does that mean …… you like me?”
I asked him pointedly, pointing at my face.
“Yes, I like you, I like you a lot. To be honest, I love you so much that I don’t know why I like you so much.
Masashi nodded his head. I felt my heart heat up with this straightforward answer, and my embarrassment and shyness overtook me, causing me to avert my gaze from Masashi.
I looked away from Masashi. Thanks. ……. But then, why did you ask me to get married all of a sudden? That’s a normal thing to start with a lover, isn’t it ……?”
I said confidently because I had never had such an experience of having a girlfriend.
Masashi burst out laughing at my words for some reason,
“What, are you seriously asking me that?”
“That’s what I’m trying to say. …… Did I say something funny like that?”
“Yeah. I’m just saying that I’m in a situation where I can get any request I want. You should be greedy and ask for the best grade. If they accept your request, you’re guaranteed to make it to the goal. To be honest, it’s just a passing point before becoming a girlfriend or a bride. I don’t see any reason to compromise on your request…….what’s with that expression on your face? Did you really not get it, Aito?”
Masashi, who had been talking with a proud look on his face, noticed my stunned expression and shrugged his shoulders as if he was dumbfounded.
“Oh my god, Aito, even though you got into a much smarter university than me, sometimes you have a weird lack of common sense, don’t you?”
“Ah, haha ……”
I could only laugh. Is that really common sense?
“So …… to, hmm, ji! I haven’t received it yet. What do you think?”
Masashi looked at me again.
“Well, let’s see… ……”
I was a little overwhelmed by Masashi’s power, and I thought for a moment.
There was a girl in my class whom I had admired all through my three years of high school. Her name was Ryoha Himuro. She was a beautiful girl with glossy black hair that reached down to her waist, and she was a perfect honor student who also served as the student council president. Naturally, she has many rivals, and not only am I the one she wants to be with, but for some reason, Himuro herself seems to dislike me immensely…
In short, it was an unfulfilled love.
Besides, we will be graduating from high school soon. After graduation, I’m sure I won’t have the chance to see Himuro again.
…… I know, right? I should probably get over my reckless love for him. …….
“I’m not confident that I’ll be able to make it work, but if it’s okay with me, I’ll definitely grant your wish, and I’ll do my best to make Masashi happy.”
“Well, that means you’re …… okay with it, right?”
Masa’s eyes widen and his body moves closer to my face.
“Yeah. But we’re still students. I’m sure it’s not easy to get married without a plan, so I’d appreciate it if we could start with a relationship based on the premise of marriage.
“No. No. No, that’s fine! That’s totally fine!
Masashi shakes his head in affirmation.
“Thanks. ─ ─ Then again, this is the first time for me to be in a relationship with someone, so I may cause you a lot of trouble, but I will do my best to live up to the expectations of Masa who chose me as his life partner.
I smile softly and hold out my hand.
But Masashi doesn’t shake my hand, and a drop of water drips down her cheek,
“-──! I’m sorry Aito. This is the opposite of that, it’s the opposite.”
Masashi realized that he was crying and wiped his tears with the back of his hand.
“……I know it’s probably not nice to say this to Aito, who has been teaching me how to study all this time,…… but right now, when I found my number on the bulletin board for those who had passed the exam, it was incomparable to when I found my number. I’m so happy that I found my number on the bulletin board of the people who passed the entrance exam. …… Oh no…… I can’t do it anymore. ……… …”
After saying this, Masa began to sob through large drops of tears.
“Oh, hey,…… are you okay,……?”
I was puzzled by Masashi’s sobbing, but I made a strong decision in my heart.
I will definitely make my girlfriend happy so that I won’t betray her tears of joy.
“───Now, Aito…… next door, can I go?”
A few moments after he stopped crying, Masashi asked in a subdued voice.
“Yes. Of course.”
I smiled softly and nodded, and Masashi quickly stood up and moved to my seat.
Masashi sat down and leaned her head against my shoulder as if she was leaning on me,
“Now, your seat next to mine is my special seat forever! I will never give it to anyone else. You are not allowed to have anyone other than me sitting next to you without my permission!”
He smiled with a broad smile.
* * * *
“─ ─ ─ as I thought, it’s always a moving sight to see.
I looked at Masashi who was smiling through the monitor as if she was full of happiness, and I said these words with sincerity.
I was now using the television in my room as a medium to project a certain image of the future.
I, the god who controls destiny, using the power of God, had given my approval to show the ideal future that I could call Masashi and Aito’s destiny.
It was supposed to be that way, but due to the intervention of another god, Nanna, and my own great blunder, that future was about to change to another form. …….
No, I won’t let that happen.
I nodded vigorously.
I am even more determined now that I have reconfirmed the moment of Masa’s destiny before the mission.
In the name of the god who controls destiny, I will give that smile to Masa in the future.
Well, it’s about time.
I turn my attention to the TV and, using the power of God, I switch the image on the TV to another one.
On the LCD screen are Masashi and Ryoha, who are looking on tenterhooks in Aito’s room. The reason for this is that Aito’s return is about to reveal the fact that they broke into his room without his permission…
“It’s time to execute the operation. Please wait for me, Masashi.”
I jumped into the TV at the same time Aito opened the door to his room.
Yes, to make Ryouha and Masashi hear the truth.
And to restore Masashi’s fate.
