The Girl Connected to my “Red Thread of Fate” was my Natural Enemy - Volume 1 - Chapter 3.5
“All right, let’s go.”
I said as I wore my favorite leather sneakers.
This way, no matter how much I walked, my feet would never hurt and I would never get tired.
I made a final check of my appearance at the front door and was about to walk out when Kotono came down the stairs while yawning.
“Fuwaa~ Huh? You’re going somewhere? Take Kotono too…”
“Hey, you’re so sleep-deprived you’ve regressed into a toddler; put on your clothes properly.”
The right shoulder strap of her camisole was slipping down, so her chest was almost exposed. [TLN: Forgot Kotono was stacked for a moment]
I really hoped she would have a little more shame because she was old enough to know better. As her older brother, I’m very worried about her future…
“Well then, I’m off now. Also wash your face first, Kotono.”
“Yes~ Have fun~”
After leaving our house, I walked leisurely through the residential area.
This was a perfect day to go out. The gentle breeze felt good, caressing my skin. Even though it was not a cloudless day, the white clouds looked great against the blue canvas.
Walking leisurely, I saw a boy and a girl playing in the park.
Were they siblings? Or were they the children of the two parents nearby?
Whatever the case, they were good friends. Both of them were very different from me and Kuonji.
The two mothers called their children. As expected, they seem to be friends.
You two, take care of each other, all right? Because maybe in the future, you both will be Fated with each other.
If I had known that Kuonji was the one, I would have cherished her even more….
What do you mean by “cherished her!!??”
“Okaa-san, that Onii-chan got his head stuck to the wall!”
“”Don’t look at him!!””
Ugh…! I should probably head there now, or else I would be seen as a suspicious person…
I quickly left the park as if escaping and headed to the front of the station.
…Hmm, little girl? I think I remembered something…
『See you later!』[TLN: Girl saying it to boy.]
Hmm…’See you later?’ I vaguely remember something like that happening when I was a small kid…
…Wait no, I had to concentrate on hanging out with Kuonji so we could have fun right now.
Perhaps due to my impatience, the time was 11:20. I arrived much earlier than I had planned, but something was not right…
The Red Thread was already stretching towards the front of the station.
Considering my house, Kuonji’s house, and the meeting place, the Red Thread should be pointing in the opposite direction.
We still had forty minutes before the rendezvous time, but…
“Why is that girl here so early?”
The clock tower in front of the station where we were to meet. Underneath it was Kuonji fidgeting around while touching her bangs.
She was wearing a beige fishtail skirt and white bell-sleeved shirt.
Then around her neck hung a one-piece necklace, shining with rainbow colors in the light.
She looked restless but at the same time graceful. Everyone’s eyes were on her.
A circular space was formed around Kuonji, who exuded more presence than anyone else. It was truly like a sanctuary that no one could approach.
She was extremely difficult to get close to…
N-No! Don’t get pressured, me. Kuonji was waiting for me. Yeah, so it was okay to approach her!
Then when I secretly regained my spirit and tried to approach Kuonji—
“Woah, you’re so cute! Hey, are you free right now, Onee-chan?”
—Some guy approached Kuonji. [TLN:Ah yes, a very cliche scene all right.]
…Ha…? Who the heck is this guy?
He was obviously a playboy for sure, and a guy with such an image approached Kuonji.
“…Who are you?”
Kuonji seemed to think the same thing, lifted the corners of her eyes and glared at the guy.
He, however, did not seem intimidated by the glare.
“You’re so cute when you’re angry! Hey, I know a nice coffee shop around here. Wanna go and grab some drinks?”
“Oh, come on, don’t be like that.”
He then tried to place his hand on Kuonji’s shoulder…
“Don’t touch her without her permission.”
I found myself grabbing the man’s wrist and twisting it up.
” I’m sorry Kuonji, did he frighten you?”
“N-No, I’m fine…”
Kuonji went around to my back and grabbed at my clothes a bit.
She was shaking so she must have been scared…This guy, I’m going to mess him up.
I then put a little more force into his wrist.
“Ouch!!! W-What the heck!”
“‘What the heck,’ huh? Aren’t you the one who’s trying to pick girls?”
“Ha!!? Everyone else is doing it! There’s a difference between being in love with your Fated Person and sleeping with someone!”
“Then go home and sleep alone.”
I thrust his twisted arm forward to push him, and the man stumbled and fell on his back.
He glared at me, but when he saw me, he got scared and left the place as if he was running away.
Well, I’m more muscular than most guys, and my clothes were a little thin. So no wonder he was scared.
