Something good unintentionally happened to Isis-san, and seeing the happy expression on her face made me feel happy too.
Well, I felt a bit down because of the rumors about me…… but there were some of those rumors that I couldn't completely deny, so I decided to just ignore them.
I started walking with Isis-san again, and as I was thinking that it was time to check out some of the stalls, I suddenly saw something that caught my eyes.
It looks as soft and fluffy as a cloud, moving a stick around as if they were drawing a large circle inside a large magic tool, and the shapes that were being created were truly artistic.
……In short, I saw cotton candy. W- Well, even though this is mainly a flea market, I guess it wouldn't be strange for there to be food vendors.
And cotton candy is a standard in festivals…… It's a bit childish, but it's stable and delicious.
Though I say that, as an adult, it seems a little too childish for me. Well, to put it simply…… "I just want to eat some"!!!
W- Well, I mean, when you think of festivals, you think of cotton candies, and when you think of cotton candies, you think of a festival. In a way, I guess it could even be said that it's disrespectful to the festival to not eat cotton candy here. No, it's not that I'm childish or anything like that…… It's just that cotton candy is very tasty, so it can't be helped if I feel this way.
If I was the only one here…… I would have purchased cotton candy without hesitation. However, my girlfriend, Isis-san, was currently next to me.
In this situation, saying that I want to eat cotton candy…… somehow feels embarrassing. H- However, I really want to eat some now. If I miss this opportunity, I don't know when I'll be able to eat cotton candy again……
A- Alright, let's make a roundabout suggestion here……
[I- Isis-san. I- It seems like there's a cotton candy stall over there.T- There's a confectionary like that in my world too…… I- It's a festival anyway, so how about we eat some]
[……Unnn ……If Kaito wants to eat some…… I'm fine with it…… Eating together with Kaito…… is my happiness.]
Her angelic smile caused an extraordinary amount of damage to my conscience.
I'm sorry, Isis-san…… I was but an unsightly human. I disguised my desire to eat it as if I wanted to introduce the confectionary of my world to Isis-san.
[……N- Never mind…… I- I'll treat you!]
[……Eh …… Is that alright]
[Yes! Please let me act cool at least in this kind of situation.]
[……Kaito…… is always…… cool though]
Isis-san is so much of an angel to me that it hurts…… I feel like my unsightly heart is being burned to ashes.
Feeling guilty for trying to use Isis-san as an excuse, I moved to the store with her. It was a careless action that I immediately regretted.
[Excuse m——– [ Hyiiihhh! A- a- a…… ] ——–Eh]
[……Ahh…… I- I'm so……]
It was completely careless of me. Even if the effect of Isis-san's magic of death had diminished, that was only if they were some distance away from her.
As far as I can tell, the limit is three meters…… If one got closer, Isis-san's magic power of death will unleash its true tyranny.
To make matters worse, the stall wasn't prepared by a subordinate of any of the Six Kings, but by a general participant.
Isis-san quickly tried to take her distance, but the shopkeeper ran away from her stall faster than she could. Throwing away everything, including the tools for her business, she ran away as fast as she could……
Seeing this, Isis-san's expression changed to one of sadness. Even though I should have known this would happen…… that her magic power of death hasn't completely disappeared. Just because I was starting to see a little improvement…… I should've been more careful.
[……I knew it…… Being together with me is—— Hnnn!]
It may have been a forceful move. But I didn't want to make her say anything more than that, so I forcibly blocked her mouth when she was about to say something.
After savoring the feeling of her moist, slightly cold lips, I pulled away. Thereupon, Isis-san seemed to be surprised as her eyes were wide open.
[I'm sorry! I was careless…… Next time, let's go to a shop owned by one of the Six Kings' subordinates!]
[……Eh ……B- But……]
[It's not your fault, Isis-san. It's my……]
[No~~ It's actually "Uncle's" fault.]
I was about to tell Isis-san that I was at fault, when I heard a familiar voice interrupting me.
[Good gracious, I'm sorry about that, Isis-sama. I was actually in charge of this store, but I just had the urge to puff some smoke, so I asked a friend of mine to watch the store for me. I'm sorry for making you feel displeased, and as an apology, I'd like to offer the both of you a cotton candy each, so please forgive us.]
Ozma-san, who had just appeared, wryly smiled as he brushed his shaggy hair and told us.
He then started making two cotton candies, looking quite familiar with making it, and handed one to Isis-san first and then to me…… before he muttered in a quiet voice that only I could hear.
[……I'm sorry I arrived late. I'll follow-up with you to a certain extent, so don't worry about it and have fun.]
It seems that Ozma-san came out to make a follow-up so that we wouldn't have to resume our date with a complicated atmosphere after the shopkeeper ran away.
After expressing my gratitude for his much-appreciated concern, I tightly grasped Isis-san's hand.
[Come on, Isis-san! Let's resume our date!]
[……Eh ……U….. Unnn.]
[Also, you're not allowed to say anything about being a bother to me, okay If you say something like that again, I'll block your mouth again, you know]
Jokingly telling her this, I pulled Isis-san's hand and started walking. Holding a strong will to never let go of this hand……
It seemed like my feelings were conveyed, as Isis-san smiled, her cheeks slightly blushing red.
[……Unnn…… I'd like it…… if you block my mouth again.]
[Don't just say such things on purpose though]
[……Fufu…… Unnn…… Alright…… But later…… one more time…… okay]
[……I- I'll do my best at that time.]
[……I'm looking forward to it.]
(P/R: Lazycat needs to pay for my hospital bills when I get a heart failure by the end of this)
Apparently, she had recovered from her slightly depressed feelings, and Isis-san squeezed my hands back with a big smile on her face.
Dear Mom, Dad————- Not everything goes well in life, and I still made a few mistakes. However, this incident was a good lesson for me. Once again, so that Isis-san doesn't have to feel unpleasant emotions, as her lover————– Let's firmly take the lead on our date.
Kaito is the type of person who eats cotton candy first before heading for the yakisoba and takoyaki at festivals.
Serious-senpai: [T- This is impossible…… 1000 "Sweetness power"…… 2000…… It's still going up! Y- You monster……]-
