“Come on, let’s go.”
“We’ll be holding a dolphin show in the outdoor pool soon.”
As soon as the announcement was made, everyone around us began to move in unison.
The aisle was filled with people, and I, who wasn’t very tall, almost lost sight of Sasanami.
“Excuse me, please let me through.”
Oh no, I was squeezing through the crowd and thought that I wouldn’t be able to get out, when suddenly a hand reached through, caught me by the wrist and pulled me back.
“Are you okay? Moving through this many people can be dangerous.”
The aisle was so jammed with people that the distance between us and the people walking in front of us was pretty none existent, if someone happens to fall down, then it is very likely that the rest of us will follow suit just like Domino’s.
“Please proceed slowly” The staff member instructed with a loud voice in order to be heard by the masses.
“There’s a problem with the single entrance to the outdoor pool. If we had three entrances, one on the front, one on the exit side and one in the center, there would be less crowding and the flow of traffic would be smoother. They have just opened, but if I were the owner, I’d still renovate it.
Suzunari, come here. Let’s wait here until the area is clear.”
Sasanami, who has calmly analyzed the architectural design flaws of this facility from a manager’s perspective, led me to the end of the aisle and made me stand by the wall, and then stood in front of me, sheltering me.
He is standing so close to me.
So close that the collar of Sasanami’s shirt is right in front of me.
It was the first time I got to smell his pheromones in such a close proximity; I was so shook that I pressed my back against the wall behind me, sticking to it tightly.
“It’s terrible; it’s like morning rush hour when going to work.”
“Do you take the train to work?”
I closed my mouth in the nick of time, I was about to make the same mistake I made earlier.
I have heard that when Sasanami was in College, he used to take the train to school in order to stay with her as long as possible when she was still in high school.
She was a bit of an oddity, even though she was a female Omega, she still chose to work part-time jobs, she also used public transportation to get to school and did other volunteer work, actively participating in cleanup activities and charity bazaars.
From what I understood, she did all of that in order to learn about society.
I’m sure that this is how he protected her from the passengers on the crowded train every day.
Standing next to me right now, I can relate, I feel a sense of superiority at the fact that I am well looked after, with this distance between us, that is close yet still not, but that doesn’t allow others to come in.
“To me, it feels like the crowd of students on the first day of school.”
“Oh, sure that was bad too.”
“If it’s this crowded, I don’t think there would be enough seats, I guess we will be standing up.”
“It’s okay, don’t worry.”
Sasanami seemed to have reserved a seat for the dolphin show. I didn’t know you could book a seat at such a show!
I have come to realize that Sasanami’s face can make a lot of different expressions, like when he is commuting to work during rush hour, when he is being a gentleman while charming a beautiful girl at a party, or when he is being a prankster and laughing with a wicked smile.
The truth is that even without the fact that he’s an alpha; Sasanami is still a very attractive guy.
It’s okay, I’m sure someone will definitely appear and will accept and love everything about him.
Someone who would still hold and protect the heart that still loves her.
I’m sure they will appear sooner rather than later, and in a blink of an eye, they will take Sasanami out of that lust-filled human wall surrounding him.
“Can you open the window for a moment?”
“Here you go, your face is really red, was it that hot today?”
“It looks like the wine I had for dinner came around.”
It’s getting late.
I had too much fun and lost track of time.
The city has already passed through the evening and the stars could be seen twinkling in the dark sky.
Normally we would have parted ways long ago.
I secretly took an additional heat suppressor at dinner, but my body temperature was already too high to ignore.
The inside of the car was full of Sasanami’s scent and I was getting dizzy because we were in a closed space intensifying the scent of his pheromones.
Recognizing that my face was blushing in response to my soul mate’s scent, I asked for the car window to a be open a little.
I blamed the redness of my face on the wine and let the cold night breeze blow my bangs.
Since Sasanami was driving, he only drank Perrier, so I was going to refrain from drinking too, but I’m glad I took him up on his word not to refrain. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to fake a red face.
“I had fun today. Will Suzunari invite me next time?”
“Oh, speaking of which, we did say that right? So I am going to have to make plans to entertain Sasanami? It’s going to be quite the challenge!”
“I am fine with anything and I’m already looking forward to it. I’ll see you next time.”
After making this promise, I was looking at Sasanami’s car as it started to move completely unaware that someone was approaching me from behind.
The person picked me up from behind.
Caught off guard and alone, all I could do was scream pathetically and struggle to get free.
“Wakaba, it is me.”
I stopped freaking out at the sound of the familiar voice, but then I heard Sasanami’s shouting along with the sound of the brakes and the violent closing of the car door.
“Hey, what are you doing?! Get away from him.”
Sasanami, who had a stern look on his face, pulled me to his side sheltering me behind his back and proceeded to grab Mr. Raizo’s chest.
He seemed to be in a hurry to hit, so I quickly tugged at his clothes trying desperately to pull him away.
“Sasanami, Sasanami! Wait, it’s okay. I know him!”
