“That’s not what I mean…,” Yukinoshita hedged. But whatever she was going to say was overpowered by the rustling of the forest. After that, it was silent.

“Hey, is there something going on with you and Hayama?” I asked, a little curious. Yukinoshita had been giving him some serious attitude. I got the impression that she was especially cold to him. She’d been that way ever since the first time Hayama had come into the Service Club room, and this camping trip was just highlighting the issue.

“We just went to the same elementary school,” Yukinoshita replied coolly, as if it were nothing to her. “His father is the legal advisor for my family’s business. By the way, his mother is a doctor.”

“Huh.” Perfect grades, all-round athletic, elite family, good-looking, normie, and has a pretty girl as a childhood friend.

Hmm…I’m not sure how to put this, but maybe he won’t slaughter me in this competition.

I’ve got an okay face, a knack for the humanities, a hatred of team sports, an extremely cute little sister, and that’s about it.

…Okay, we’re even! I want to know defeat.

If he had a little sister, I’d be in trouble. I was nearly destroyed there.

“It must suck, having your families push you together,” I said.

“I suppose.”

“You make it sound like it’s not your problem…”

“It’s my sister’s job to handle those sorts of social obligations. I’m just a stand-in,” she replied. The treetops murmured and swayed in the breeze. The sound of rustling leaves undulated out in the silent night, like ripples on the surface of water. But as the forest stirred, I could still hear Yukinoshita’s voice. “Even so,” she said, “…I’m glad I could come today. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to.”

“Huh? Why?” I turned toward her. I wasn’t sure what she meant. She was still studying the stars, though. It was as if I had said nothing at all. Still, I waited for her reply. A particularly zealous insect gave a long, buzzing chirp. Maybe it was the late hour and the chilly air, but the ensuing gust of wind felt like autumn.

Maybe she had been waiting for that. Yukinoshita turned toward me. A hint of a smile was on her lips, and she said nothing. She gave me no replies and asked me no questions.

The quiet moment soon ended, though, and she stood upright. “I’m going back.”

“…All right. See you, then.”

“Yes, good night.”

I never did probe further. I wasn’t interested in trying to force her to say something she didn’t want to. I think part of it was the comfortable relationship we’d built by not knowing each other very well.

Yukinoshita walked with sure steps down the unlit path, and I watched her gradually disappear into the darkness.

Now alone, I glanced at the stars above, the very same sky that Yukino Yukinoshita had been so closely watching. I’ve heard that the light of the stars is actually from the distant past. Through the eons, they’ve radiated the ancient light of an age gone by.

Everyone is caught up in the past.
