We are Now Dating
[Thank you very much!! Thank you for the message!!]
After replying to the message, it was about seven o’clock in the evening before a reply came back.
[Take care of me as well ♪ I also said this after school today, but texting during school is forbidden alright? Promise?]
If it came from another teacher, it might have felt like a nosy warning, but for some reason when it’s from Hiiragi-chan it makes me happy…
[Then, does that mean calling is okay?] I sent her a bit of a joking message.
When I did, I immediately got a reply.
[Playing around with my words is also banned.]
Ah~. Ah~. This is bad. Her reactions are also cute.
A strange laughter leaked out.
“What are you laughing at?”
My mother, who was at the dining hall, looked at me suspiciously.
After I finished eating dinner, I returned to my room and thought about what to write as a reply. Suddenly, the question that I first came up with came to mind.
[Why did you say okay? I did confess to you though.]
[My heart went doki when you held my hand. I was really happy. Also, seeing you work so hard was cute ♡]
[I’m so happy my nose bled.]
[That’s not good! You need to give the back of your neck a light tap!]
[Because it was an okay, you recorded your address into my contacts?]
I can’t. Just one heart emoji causes my happiness gauge to fly away.
[If this is found out, wouldn’t it be quite dangerous?]
[Eh? Why is that?]
Why… well, a teacher going out with a student, a teacher doing this and that with their student wouldn’t be good, right? I mean, isn’t it not allowed? Even I know that a teacher shouldn’t be personally messaging their students, that’s not right, right? Isn’t it also wrong for you to record your mail address onto a phone that’s been confiscated?
Considering the risk of a teacher like Hiiragi-chan actually going out with a student, ignoring the fact that I confessed, Hiiragi-chan should have refused.
[If it’s found out, you might have to quit school and you won’t be able to be a teacher, right…?]
[Ah, I see.]
I see… that’s so casual.
[But still, it can’t be helped. Having my heart go doki and the feeling of electricity running through me, I ended up liking you ♡]
It can’t be helped. If she puts a ♡ then it can’t be helped. If she ended up liking me then it can’t be helped. In order to accept all of Hiiragi-chan, I’ll give her my 100%. Risk and the other stuff. Common sense can go to hell. No, but, wait a moment. Calm down me.
There is a need to reduce the risk of getting caught to zero. It seems that Hiiragi-chan’s common sense is a little bit fluffy. I have to hold firm here.
[Let’s decide on rules. At school, we won’t meet alone.]
[Eh~!? Since texting is banned, if we can’t do that we can’t talk, right?]
This teacher, she planned on being along together and flirting at school…!?
[Withdrawn. It’s alright to meet alone at school.]
I have a reputation of taking things back after all.
[However, since it seems that putting brakes on the whole thing is not possible, we will meet somewhere during the 10 minute break period, and only once.]
[Eh. What about lunch break!? That’s the main event!?]
[That’s a little… If we meet for long periods, we might be suspected.]
[Muuu. Sanada is quite a serious person. I always make a bentou for lunch, so don’t I have to make an extra one now?]
Ah. I understand. Hiiragi-chan, aren’t you a bit of an useless adult. If I want to keep our romantic relationship, I need to protect Hiiragi-chan. What’s inside of me is older than Hiiragi-chan at least. I must have everything together at least.
[I’m happy for the bentou. But, there isn’t any place to eat it, is there? A teacher eating bentou with her student every day, that’s really suspicious.]
[Inside the World History Preparation Room. I’m the teacher managing it after all ♡]
!? … C-calm down me. I
…I-I have to keep firm.
[Yeah ♪ Before fifth period starts, sometimes other history teachers will come. But, I have a strong grasp on what days those will be ☆]
[Then during lunch, on days other than those?]
[No one will come, you know?]
[For side dishes, I like karaage.]
At this time, my common sense has completely died.
[Understood. I’ll put it in tomorrow ♡]
It sunk. It’s already impossible. I couldn’t resist the temptation. Anything is fine now. Secretly being alone with Hiiragi-chan, eating bentous that Hiiragi-chan made, there’s no way I would miss such a dreamlike situation.
I immediately told my mother that I didn’t need a bentou tomorrow. I made up a suitable reason to go along with it.
