It still didn’t really make sense why she got the PSP version, but it didn’t really matter either.
I just wanted to fill the silence.
Me: I guess you’re pretty tired (laugh)
Co-worker: Yeah, is it alright if I sleep here?
Me: Yeah, that’s fine.
Co-worker: Ah, I’m not trying to pressure you into it or anything.
Did you do your sit-ups?
Me: Uh, are you alright with the bed?
Co-worker: No it’s alright, I’ll feel bad if I take your bed.
Me: It’s fine, I have a sleeping bag I can use.
In any case, it seemed like she wasn’t worried about the cleanliness of my bed.
Co-worker: Is it alright if I take a shower?
Co-worker: Also, can I borrow a t-shirt?
Me: If you’re ok with wearing my t-shirts.
This is the dream.
Hello, is this the place for renting human punching bags?
While she was in the shower
I changed the sheets and the pillow covers.
While I was in the shower she laid down on my bed in my t-shirt and read manga.
She was making herself right at home.
So I decided just to ask her straight-out.
Me: By the way…
Me: Do you have a boyfriend?
Me: I see…
This means there’s a chance right?
What the hell was that!
I want to turn into a fly and go annoy the hell out of them.
Man, what a day you had.
Co-worker: Why do you ask?
Me: No particular reason.
Co-worker: Are you sure you didn’t want to ask me something else?
Me: I’d be lying if I said no…
I wasn’t entirely sure she was getting at, so I tried answer vaguely.
But she saw right through it.
Co-worker: Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably right. Sorry.
I had no idea why she was apologizing.
I asked just to be 100% sure.
Me: …we’re you kicked out of your house?
Turns out my guess was wrong.
You’re an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’re making me laugh too much!
How late of a bloomer are you…
I can’t believe people like you actually exist.
Does this mean she wants to hunt some monsters at night (blush)?
Were you kicked out of your house?
There’s no way that’s what happened dumb ass!!
So this is Asperger’s Syndrome.
Me: …being in the same room with a girl is nerve-racking HA HA
Me: Uh…do you like me?
Me: I see.
It turns out she likes me.
I had an inkling she did but…
Co-worker: Does that bother you?
Co-worker: Sorry about being so forward.
Me: It’s ok…
Co-worker: Do you like me?
Me: I don’t dislike you… how about we just go to sleep for tonight.
When I woke up in the morning she was reading manga again.
It seemed like she was waiting for an answer.
Co-worker: Good morning, do you want some curry?
The atmosphere was super uncomfortable.
One-Piece was playing on the TV.
Me: About last night…
She didn’t say anything.
Maybe she changed her mind after I stopped the discussion last night.
Me: Is it alright if we continue that conversation?
I guess it was still ok.
Try having more fun when you play games.
Me: Um, I’ve never dated a girl before, so I might not be a very good boyfriend.
Co-worker: I know.
Me: If you’re alright with that then, I wouldn’t mind.
Co-worker: Does that mean we’re a couple now?
Me: Um… if I start to like you?
Me: Ah sorry, forget I said that…uh, yeah we’re a couple.
You really are a master monster hunter.
What’s with this development…
I can’t stop laughing at how awkward you are.
And that’s how I got my first girlfriend.
But even though we were a couple now, I didn’t know any coupley things we could do…
So, with PSP in hand I asked, “Do you want to play Monster Hunter?”
Co-worker: No, my eyes are still tired so I’m just going to rest today.
I guess we weren’t going to play Monster Hunter today.
So I decided to ask my tired-looking co-worker another question.
Me: Why me?
Co-worker: Because you’re cute, kind, and a bit shy.
Me: I see.
