Chapter 17 Nightmare - Part 1

 Third Person Perspective
 'At that time, thy mind may think that it is a word, or that it is a tad imitation, but it is not. There is meaning in that. And thy desire will also become true.'
 Shuu, who is sleeping next to Ayano, looks at her with a pained expression on his face.
 Ayano sees this and wonders what to do for a while.
 She thinks that Shuu is probably having a bad dream. She would like to wake him up gently if she could, but before she went to bed last night, Shuu told her something.
 If she is going to sleep with him, she said not to wake him up until he woke up on his own. He said that he hates to have his sleep disturbed more than anything else.
 Since he has stated so, the only thing she can do is to watch Shuu's pained face as he sleeps next to her.
 These are the words of her beloved lover, with whom she has been in a relationship since yesterday. So, even though she is doing it for his sake, she can't break it so easily. However, after last night, she couldn't help but worry about Shuu.
 Shuu had said that they had already talked things over, but Ayano wondered if Shintaro, Kenji, and the others would be so easily convinced.
 It is true that Shuu does not seem to be injured.
 However, it was almost 2:00 a.m. when they finally returned home, and Shuu fell asleep before she could ask him about the details. As he was sleeping, Ayano also fell asleep with Shuu in her arms, but she was the only one who woke up early when she heard Shuu's groaning voice.
 Still, she was relieved that Shuu had returned home safely.
 However, she was also concerned about the somewhat grumpy expression on Shuu's face when he came back.
 Ayano was worried.
 It was good that he had gone to talk to them, but in the end, all he did was to be intimidated by Sakaki and the others, right? She was afraid that Shu was trying hard to hide this fact from her.
 So, Ayano thought she would ask him about it later. But she can't ask too fussy. Shuu would probably not like it and she doesn't want to do anything that Shuu doesn't want to do.
 After all, she loves him, but she can't say that he loves her as much as she loves him. She knows that their relationship is distorted in this way.
 Anyway, she quietly gets out of bed so that Shuu does not wake up, and goes downstairs.
 Ayano is wearing only her underwear and a sweatshirt borrowed from Shuu.
 The lower half of her body is almost completely exposed, and she immediately misses the warmth of the futon.
 Still, she quickly grabs two bottles of tea from the refrigerator and goes back upstairs to Shuu's room.
 For the note, she did not do anything with Shuu before going to bed last night.
 Ayano had been dressed like that in anticipation, but Shuu fell asleep as soon as he came home. Despite her disappointment, she was happy just to be able to sleep with Shuu even without that.
 Even now, if she had not been so worried, she would have been filled with an unbelievable sense of happiness.
 Thinking about it again, she would have never thought that she would fall in love with Shuu so much before.
 She herself fully understands that the physical pleasure Shuu gives her has something to do with it. But she also realized that it was not the only reason.
 In the first place, she did not dislike him.
 Well, they used to go back and forth to each other's house until middle school because they were next-door neighbors. But now, the moment she realized that the reason for her loss of interest was simply a misunderstanding, the balance of her feelings shifted.
 "Ah, I'm sorry. Did I wake you up?"
 When she came back to her room, Shuu was already sitting up and stretching with his hands raised above his head.
 "No, I just woke up."
 "Well, that's good. Here, take this."
 She hands a plastic tea bottle to Shuu, who is still lying on his upper body under the covers, and Ayano quickly climbs into the bed next to him. As she felt Shuu's warmth, she no longer wanted to leave.
 She wraps her legs around Shuu's thighs and moves her face down to his chest. Because of the close contact, she felt something hard around her thighs.
