"Tsuruga-san!" Kyoko's voice cried out in surprise.

Despite himself, Ren felt his lips twitch upwards and the familiar tightening in his chest from the sound of her voice. "Mogami-san," he greeted warmly, "my apologies, I meant to call earlier but the scene ran late."

"Nonono," Kyoko assured quickly. "It's fine!"


"Is something wrong, Mogami-san?"

He shuddered as she groaned from embarrassment. "M-Mogami-san?" He forced himself to remain calm.

A confession?
