◆４【This Guy’s Voice Will be Heard Even If He Doesn’t Use The Telephone】
I got a call from my Dad.
“Hey, how are you guys doing?”
My Dad is on a tour right now, so he’s calling me from there, as is his custom. Even though he now has a high school education, he must be worried about Tsumugi.
“Don’t worry. We’re doing fine even without Dad.”
I was able to say this without feeling any more guilt than before I became involved with Takarai.
“What’s up with that? I expected you guys to miss me more.”
Dad sounded both displeased and happy.
“You sound like you’re having fun.”
“Maybe it’s because the house is more spacious without the big guy?”
“I’ll take you to the extreme even if it’s over the phone, you son of a b*tch.”
My Dad laughs.
“I was a little worried about you, but you seem to be doing okay. You sound much better than before.”
Dad must have noticed.
I was tempted to tell him about Takarai, who was probably the reason why I was feeling better than before, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it over the phone, because it might give him the wrong idea if I told him that a girl from my class was coming over to our house frequently. Dad would be back sooner or later, and I could tell him anything complicated at that time.
“Well, why don’t you come home as soon as you can to make sure I’m okay?”
I said so.
In my father’s mind, I was still the same person I had been when I was struggling with Tsumugi.
I was sure that he was worried about me, and I wanted to reassure him as soon as possible.
Then I would have to tell him about Takarai, right?
I felt embarrassed, but I also wanted him to know about her.
“Yeah, I’ll bring you back some souvenirs, just wait and see.”
I was looking forward to his souvenirs from the expedition, but more than that, I was looking forward to his safe return.
Of course, I won’t tell him.
I don’t want to get him carried away too much.
