Kimi ni Koi wo Suru Nante, Arienai Hazu Datta - Chapter 0
As I pulled my favorite coat closer to me, my body shivered once more in the cold.
Even though I was wearing thick clothes, my body gradually started freezing as I stayed on the ice cold platform. But, he might show up the second I choose to board a train and head home. The thought of that kept me from giving up. Maybe I’m getting a little stubborn. And so, just like that, I watched as another downbound train left the platform.
However, the temperatures during this time of the year were so cold that I sometimes went back inside the station, to the area near the ticket gate, or walked all the way to the end of the platform just to warm myself up. Perhaps I’d bump into him while I walked around. I’ve been doing this every day since my winter courses started. But no matter how hard I tried to find him in the hustle and bustle of the crowd, so far my efforts were fruitless.
Achoo, I quietly sneezed. Ever since the day of the closing ceremony, I’ve been waiting for him until late at night, which is why my body had fallen ill. It wasn’t to the point where I was bedridden, but my body felt feverish and sluggish. Still, when I weighed the fact that I hadn’t quite finished studying for the scope of the exam, and the hope that he might come today, I chose not to stay home and sleep in.
The bell rang for the 17:53 train’s departure. The sun had already set, and the sky was dark. My older sister said she would be busy with work today, so I have to prepare dinner myself. So, I can’t afford to wait here any longer.
Tomorrow, I’ll come at a slightly later time. As her breath turned white in the cold, she boarded the train.
