「No…We don’t need to buy mine in the department store…」 「Eh?…Yoshi-kun, where do you usually buy underwear?」
Megu’s making a surprised face. …Where?
「…100 shops」 「…100?」 「100 yen shops」
Or rather…for this five years, I’ve been living by buying underwear at 100 yen shops.
「Hmm…Don’t 100 yen underwear feel bad?」
Megu’s making a worried face though.
「I don’t know…I’ve never put on anything but 100 yen」
Is there difference between the feel of men’s underwear?
「Hundred yen underwear is no good…let’s buy a better one」
Megu told me with a serious face. No…I never had problems with hundred yen though.
「It’s fine…It would be a waste. I’m the one wearing it after all」
When I said that…
「Then…Megu will buy hundred yen underwear as well. Are you fine with that?」
Megu stares at me…
「No…Megu doesn’t need to match with me. Women’s underwear on the Hundred yen shops doesn’t look so decent…」
Yup…It’s bad quality. After all it’s just 100 yen.
「Yoshi-kun…if the hundred yen underwear for women isn’t decent, don’t you think that’s the same for men’s underwear?」
Megu says seriously Now that she said it that might be right…
「But…I don’t need to mind the feeling when wearing」 「I want you to!」
「Yoshi-kun…there’re are various things in the world.」 I want Yoshi-kun to become a man who understand the difference of things…!」
…A man who understands the difference of things?
「Yes…If you understand the difference, won’t you be able to judge the true value of it?」
Megu grasps my hand strongly…
「But…My underwear won’t be seen outside」 「Even if the others can’t see it…Yoshi-kun who’s wearing it will know, right? Wearing it…and understanding from experience」 「…Well, that’s true」 「Yoshi-kun…If I think that it’s a waste of money so I go to school with an old and worn out underwear, what would you do?」
If Megu wears an old and worn out underwear…
「I don’t want that. I want Megu to wear a clean oone」 「…I’m the same!」
Megu told me strongly…! …I see. I’m devoting myself on Megu one-sidedly. If I think of wanting Megu to wear a clean underwear then I have to get clean underwear as well…
「Also…Tomorrow’s the 『Medical Checkup』 I’d like Yoshi-kun to go there in proper underwear」
Tomorrow’s 『Medical checkup』will have body measurement. The doctors had already done their 『Medical Checkup』at the start of the term. Well, that was internal medicine checkup. Tomorrow will be mainly measuring the height, sitting height, weight, and chest measurement and likes. Also…does X-rays come too? Anyway…they will be measured in their underwear separated by gender.
「If Yoshi-kun wears a strange underwear, I’ll be laughed at…」
Megu stares at me.
「I’m Yoshi-kun’s 『girlfriend』in the school after all…!」
Oh…I’m completely surrounded. I’m no longer alone. I have to live carrying the 『Consideration』to my 『women』…!
「…Got it. I’ll let Megu buy it」
◇ ◇ ◇
…But. Coming to the men’s section…
Megu’s chosing my underwear in high spirits. While humming…
「Megu…Aren’t you embarrassed?」 「Eh…Why?」 「Well…It’s men’s underwear section」 「I’m having fun you know! I’m like Yoshi-kun’s wife…!」
「Err…Yoshi-kun likes trunks, right?」
Megu saw my underwear multiple times. I showed more than the underwear though…
「Ah…yeah」 「But…how about you try this boxer briefs? This ones have a better texture」
…Boxer briefs? Oh, the trunks that have the tight feel?
「Hmm…Then, let’s go with that」
I don’t have any objections. I don’t care about the underwear I wear either way… I don’t like white briefs, but… I wore white briefs before I bought trunks on hundred yen shops. After wearing that for a year…It becomes impossible to wash away the yellow tint…
「Got it…Let’s buy five pieces.」
「No…Let’s just buy 3. I can just wash it in rotation if it’s 3 pieces.」 「No…We’ll buy 5 pieces. There should be a spare too!」
Megu’s wife methods are obstinate.
「By the way…how much is that?」 「840 yen a piece」
…Err! …I can buy eight trunks from the hundred yen shop with that. Five pieces…! T-T-T-That’s a huge expense!!!
「Don’t make that face…we bought my dress for 70k yen! Use some money to buy your underwear!」
…D-Dammit! When it comes to this…!
◇ ◇ ◇
「That’s a waste!」
We’re in the female underwear section right now… This is terribly embarrassing. Though I’m feeling extremely embarrassed…I endured it with determination.
「That’s no good! I’ll buy Megu an underwear set with 10k yen or more…!」
I’m already desperate.…! Let’s get the best bra and panty…!
「And we’re going to buy three kinds of it!」 「…Three kinds?」
Megu’s making a blank face.
「First would be for tomorrow’s 『Medical examination』 It’s not good according to the school regulations to wear anything but plain white!」 「…Y-yeah」 「Even if it’s plain white…I’d buy a design set for it A beautiful, cute, and cool one」 「That’s…We can just use the normal one I use to go to school」
Megu said, but…
「Nope! Your body would be seen by other girls during the body measurement, won’t it? Even I want Megu to go there with the best, beautiful and the cutest underwear!」
I’ll return the logic Megu used on me a while ago…!
「…Got it. But, let’s lower it to 3k yen…!」 「Never!…We’re going to buy 10k yen! It’ll look different!」
I declare with firm determination…!
「Also…the one you’ll wear the day after tomorrow, on Misuzu’s symposium. Since you’re going to wear a good dress, you should wear good underwear as well. You should dress yourself up even if it’s not seen from outside, wasn’t it…?!」 「Well…That’s true but…」 「We’ll buy a bra and panty that suits the 70k yen dress…!」 「Un…I get it」
Megu approved this one immediately.
「Lastly…let’s buy a lewd underwear…!」 「…Eh?」
Megu’s long and narrow eyes opened wide…!
「I want to see Megu wearing a lewd underwear」
Megu’s face turned red.
Megu clings to me…
「Megu…will wear no matter how lewd it is…!」
…And The two of us hunts underwear… We looked for the underwear that’s appropriate on the school regulations for tomorrow.
「Isn’t this one good?」
I chose a set of a refreshing design.
Megu’s embarrassed. Err…I take a look at the price tag. The white bra and panty set is priced 12k yen…
「…Umu」 「What’s wrong, Yoshi-kun?」 「I finally understood what Megu said a while ago…?!」 「Eh, why?」 「It’s just a plain white underwear…But the look is completely different. This one has an appearance that tells that it feels different when worn and that it has high quality texture…!」
Even though it’s really just a simple design. They’re drawing a distinct line from the bargain sale products… As expected, those that exceed 10k yen are different…
「Even Yoshi-kun’s 100 yen and 840 yen underwear are completely different…!」
That might be the case but…I can clearly see the difference between girl’s underwear. Well, there’s the price too… Okay…The first set is done. Next…
「…Are you sure with this?」
This time, it’s the underwear for the symposium… I suggested that the set costing 23k would be good to Megu. This one is a pale pink set with frills and lace. There’s floral watermark designs in it. …It looks gorgeous and cute from the outside.
「I wonder if this suits me」
Megu is still belittling herself again.
「Then…Should we buy this 40k yen instead?」
When I urged her aggressively… Hey…We’re almost our limit though.
「I-it’s fine…This one will do!」
Megu agreed with the 23k yen. Lastly…the lewd underwear.
「Yoshi-kun…are you sure with that?」
The set I chose is a red cloth with black lace. The color is flashy but the design is ordinary. It would feel normal having a high school girl wear it… But still…It feels like a 『Lucky underwear』…
「…I’m fine with something more strange you know?」
That’s what Megu says while blushing.
「I’ve seen the ladies in the mansion wear something even more amazing than that when I was a child. Yoshi-kun wants to have sex with me on those clothes?」
Megu thinks of buying even more lewder underwear it seems.
「Katsuko-nee may have lots of those types」
Yup…She must have lots of bra with hole on the nipple or string panty.
「Also…This is a normal department store. They don’t have those that are extreme」
If we seriously want to buy lewd underwear…we have to go to a specialty store for that.
「But…This isn’t much of a lewd underwear…It’s not adult-like at all. Yoshi-kun, are you sure with that?」
…Oh Megu doesn’t understand it…
「Megu…What kind of underwear do you have?」 「…It’s all plain white. Just according to the school regulations」
I thought so…!
「You don’t wear showy underwear with color, don’t you?」 「…Un」
I told Megu.
「It’s fine to not use too lewd underwear immediately. Megu’s been an『Honor Student』so far. It would make me confused if Megu wears such a 『Lucky underwear』…!」 「…Is that so?」 「Megu’s still a first year so even if you’re a lewd girl, I’d like you to be a high-school-like girl…!」
I want to be in a relationship with Megu who’s at the same age as me. There’s no need to force her to stretch herself. Megu thinks deeply.
「Right. I cannot win in sexiness against Katsuko-neesan or Nagisa-san. If Megu fights, she has to use her high school student girl-like lewd weapon…!」
…Eh? …Fight? Weapon? …Megu?
「I’ve been aiming to be a 『Good girl』and 『Honor student』since I was taken in Yamamine house…I think that shell is hard to break. Perhaps, I cannot get away from the 『Honor Student』route anymore…」
Megu analyses herself…
「Yoshi-kun…is being aroused by the 『Honor Student』Megu being indecent, is that right?」
Megu looks at my face…
「Hmm…I like the lewd Megu…」
…Wait a moment. I also think deep inside of me…
「No…What arouses me is the Megu who’s very tidy, persevering, hardworking, and kind to everyone…being lewd in front of me」
The image gap. Megu listens to my talk seriously. Then…She nodded…
「…Got it. Megu won’t stop playing the 『Honor student』role. I’ll be a 『Good Girl』in front of everyone…and become a 『Bad Girl』in front of Yoshi-kun…!」
Megu said with brilliant eyes.
「Yoshi-kun, take a look at both Megu’s…Both of them are real Megu…!」
…Megu! Megu takes the red and black 『Lucky underwear』…
「You’re right…Up until now, I thought of wearing this kind of color of underwear will make me a『Bad Girl』 That’s how much of a 『Honor student』I am…!」2
The reunion with 『Kuromori』has put Megu’s sense out of order… Just hearing ‘lewd underwear’…She thought of a 『Prostitute』like underwear…
「Yeah. It is as Yoshi-kun says…I should begin my 『Bad Girl』image with this underwear…」
Megu confirms her own position…then starts from there. She’s not forcing to stretch herself…
「Megu is at the same year as Yoshi-kun…so we should do high-school-like indecency…!」
「Megu…Let’s go to the back of that pillar there」
I hold Megu’s hand
Megu smiles at me.
「I want to kiss Megu just now…!」
Megu clings to me.
「What a coincidence! Megu wants to kiss Yoshi-kun too…!」
Just like that…Megu piled her lips with mine. We’re kissing at the female underwear section in the department store…!3
◇ ◇ ◇
In the end, we chose the cheapest high school student-like 『Lucky underwear』 8.8k yen for a set…Hmm. After deciding on buying three sets of underwear, I noticed the sizes. Megu said 「Perhaps this one fits right」… It’s expensive after all… Then, the clerk asks「Would you like to put it on?」 …Eh, you can try underwear? I see…This is expensive after all. But…wearing underwear that someone else tried on…isn’t it unpleasant?
「I’m going to try it on…!」
Then, Megu went to the fitting room with the clerk. This time…I can’t come with her. It would be too embarrassing no matter how you look at it.
「We’ve already decided so the only thing they’re going to do is to check the size…!」
Just kidding…I just want to show off because the clerk is in front of us… I’m in my school uniform. What am I saying…Or rather, I’m an idiot! Then…I waited alone. …Err …What the hell is this. In the female underwear section…I’m waiting alone in my school uniform. Ah…the shoppers walking around are all looking at me with weird eyes… 『Why is he on this floor?』their faces say… …Awawawawawa Ain’t I looking like a pervert?! …M-Megu! H-Hurry up and come back!!
「…Thank yo for the wait Yoshi-kun!」
…In the end, I bathed in cold eyes from the people for almost 15 minutes.
「I’m glad I tried it on. The『Lucky underwear』is a perfect fit but…the two others are a bit bigger. They’ll change it with the same underwear with different size. Also…The clerk had taught me how to make my breasts look big when wearing bra…!4」
Ah…Is that so?
「Then, should I take this to the counter?」
The clerk said with a cheerful face. Well, we’re shopping stuff that exceeds 40k yen…
「Yes, please…!」 「Are you going to use cash?」
Well…We’re still students so we can’t have a card.
I took out money from the envelop Minaho-neesan gave me.
「…Is this a present for your girlfriend’s birthday?」
The clerk asked me laughingly. Megu and I are queued in the cash register. Megu holds my hand again. We’re being seen that way… Certainly, I’m holding the bag of Megu’s dress and Megu’s shoes. On the other hand…Megu’s holding the bag that contains my underwear.
「No…That’s not it」
I answered the clerk clearly.
「That’s my gratitude for my girlfriend…!」
Megu holds my hand tightly…! She’s looking down bashfully with moist eyes.
「I’m wrapping it then…!」
The clerk said with a smile…!
Megu’s dress costs 73k yen. The shoes matching the dress costs 35k yen. The ring costs 32k yen. My underwear costs 4.2k yen. The plain T-shirt that was bought along with the underwear costs 1.8k yen. Megu’s underwear, three sets…costs 43,800 Yen. Total…189,800 yen. …We bought without thinking. We took 200k yen and there’s only 10,200 yen left.
「…This is strange」
「What’s wrong, Yoshi-kun?」
Megu looks at me.
「No you see…Even though I think that its a waste to use money on myself…I don’t feel any regret buying for Megu. Rather, I thought of wanting to spend more…」
…It’s really strange.
「I’ll earn a lot. I have to buy a lot of things not just for Megu but also for Maika and the other girls」
Megu leans on my body…
「I’ll also work part time…I want to buy Yoshi-kun a lot of things…!」 「I’ll be fine. Megu should just use the money she earned for herself」 「What Megu wants to do is to devote herself to Yoshi-kun…!」
Megu…smiled at me. Somehow…My chest feels hot. I don’t get it though. Is this what they call happiness?
Suddenly, my phone vibrated.
「Isn’t that Minaho-san?」
I see…Maika’s examination ended already? I answered the call.
『…Hello, Yoshida-kun. Where are you right now?」
「We’re in the department store around the station」 『…You’re done shopping?』 「Yes, we bought everything」 『…How much was left?』 「Err…Around 10k yen」
…Will she get angry? We spent too much…
『You passed…I thought that you’d leave more than half since it’s you』 「…Eh?」 『If you had more than 50k yen remaining, I intend to have you buy Megumi’s clothes once again…but it seems that there’s no problem』 「…O-Okay」
As usual…Minaho-neesan likes to test people.
『Go to the bus terminal around the station in 15 minutes. Line up on the bus stop to the municipal hospital』
…Bus stop to the municipal hospital?
『Try to pretend that you don’t know my car even if you see it…When I blow the horn, dash towards the car. Okay…?!』
…It feels like there’s reason for that.
「…Okay, got it. We’re going to run as soon as you blow the horn」
I ready myself and answered.
『See you in 15 minutes』
…She end the call.
「Sorry, can we have a bigger bag so we can put it all together?」
Hearing me on the call…Megu spoke to the clerk.
「…Megu?」 「If we’re going to jump to the car, we should do that」
Megu smiles calmly. …It seems that she’s already prepared.
◇ ◇ ◇
Without hurrying…without panicking. We walk at normal speed… We’re holding two shopping bags. Megu holds the bag of dress… The shoes and underwear are all in my bag. We come to the bus terminal after getting out of the department store.
「Do you know the number of the terminal on the bus to the municipal hospital?」
When I asked…
「12th. I know that because my foster mother was hospitalized before」
「…Why was your mother hospitalized?」 「She fell on the stairs in the company…and her waist bone was broken」 「Your mother was working too?」 「Yes…She’s on the design advertisement company. It’s a small company but…they also have newspaper design in them. They’re printing a huge amount of copies for not just supermarkets, but also car companies, big flats, or car companies」
In short…Megu’s mother is also working on a company related to Shirasaka house.
「Ah…The 12th is on that way」
The bus terminal for the municipal hospital is the most out of place. Is the bus coming soon?…There’s 10 people lining up already
「…We’ll line up too」
We lined up with the queue… There’s still five minutes before the appointed time Minaho-neesan told us.
「Let’s buy canned juice?」
When I said that…
「Let’s not. It would hinder our movement…」
「Rather than that…Yoshi-kun.」
Megu snuggles to me and murmurs…
「If ever someone’s following us, they’ll surely line up in this queue」
「…That’s why you shouldn’t be loud if it’s something you don’t want someone to hear it」 「…Okay」 「With that said…Yoshi-kun’s bad with that, right?」 「…Yeah」 「Megu will be talking so Yoshi-kun just have to nod」 「…G-Got it」
Seriously… My 『women』are much more intelligent than me… It saves me a lot though… Megu begins her talk about her track and field team… Anyway…I just kept coming.
Megu whispers to my ear without changing her expression.
「Yoshi-kun, don’t turn around…」 「…Okay」 「We just have to run when she blows the horn…is that right?!」 「Yes…That’s right」
Megu holds my hand…
「Don’t be nervous…Megu’s here with you」
…Megu, what a reliable girl!
「The car is at Yoshi-kun’s back right…it’s around ten meters」
Megu gives me the detailed information…
「…Right now, Katsuko-san opened the door…!」
The horn rang! …Now!
Megu and I turned and dashed to the car…! As expected of a track and field member…Megu’s legs are fast!
I hear a scream from the back…! As expected, they’re following us…?!
「…Hey, dude, you dropped something!!」
…Like hell I’ll take the bait!
Katsuko-nee opens the car door wide. Maika’s hiding herself. I can’t see her from outside…!
「…Thief! Catch them!」
The man chasing us from the back suddenly said! You’re using everything now…?! ……！！ First, Megu jumps to the car…! Next…I jumped in!! We closed the car and turned back in a hurry…! There’s three hoodlum men running after us! A-Are we going to make it?!
「Don’t bite your tongue…!」
The car starts immediately when the car door closes!
One of the hoodlum kicked the door…! Thanks to that, the door closed!6
The car accelerates…! The three men from outside the rear window becomes small…
When I sighed…
「No…They’re going to come after us」
