school bell rings
You awake now?
I brought your bag. Let’s go home.
Here, take it.
What do you think? It’s an umbrella.
No, I’m not asking about that. I meant did you buy this?
Don't be ridiculous. A middle-schooler like me don’t have any money for that. | I brought it from my house.
Let’s just get home quickly.
Carry me. I feel dizzy.
...Seriously, do you wanna die?

This bastard… what the hell is he saying right now…
I’ve been feeling anxious for 15 years, thinking I might lose you…
That if I accidentally let out my true emotions and you become aware of it,
You’ll throw me away.
But then, as time passed, I was unable to hide them from you… It scared me. Although now, it doesn’t matter a bit since you can hear them all.
The point is, that I love y--
Wait a minute, what…
What the hell are you suddenly talking about!!
You said you wouldn’t get mad at me.
Is that the problem right now?! Seriously, you…
I thought it was something really serious!
You told me earlier that you ‘used to have’ a food source! So then I thought, ‘Oh, something must’ve happened to him,’ and that you were worried about that…
I thought you were talking about that, but…
Ugh, what is this…
I was feeling tensed up for nothing...
Wait. Don’t speak yet.
… I can hear your heartbeat.
Damn it, my privacy...
You don’t say.
How long has it been since the day you got drunk and bit my lips?
It was just the day before yesterday.
Two days ago.
It’s only been two days. Two.
This isn’t “Romeo and Juliet,” why’s all this happening in only three days?
Our situation is worse than theirs.
For now, do you wanna go in?
No. Finish this conversation here.
You said you didn’t want to involve me in this, right?
That from the start,
You tried not to establish a relationship with me.
Yet, the reason you couldn’t do that was… Yeah.
So in conclusion, you couldn’t say anything about yourself even though you’ve stayed beside me the whole time--
These are the things that happened before I got bitten by you, am I right?
That’s why this guy tried to hide it from me…
But I made him confess all of that.
Let me be clear to you about one thing:
I have no intentions of throwing you away. That stays the same, the past till right now.
We’ve already been together for 15 years with only non-verbal communication, so don’t say shit like that.
And I’m sorry, but I don’t regret one bit about having to make you talk about the situation.
Since I could understand you through it.
I told you, that’s enough.
I only said those things because you told me to.
I already know what your reply would be.
If you’d keep staying by my side, that’s good enough for me.
Since you’re by my side.
What’s with… that?
...Can I hug you?
The words “Isn’t that a bit too sad?” kept crossing my mind…
But because those were words I shouldn’t have said…
...I couldn’t say a single thing.
