Chapter 38 - (Un)familiar Morning?
Because of the things that happened yesterday, It seems like I overslept a little.
Having just woke up, I grabbed my phone next to my pillow and saw the current time.
“What? It’s already 10 am?”
It was a Sunday, so normally, I should be fine. But starting from today, my life is anything but normal.
Because from now on, I’ll be living with someone else. And that someone is a little hopeless when it comes to food.
I got up from my bed, got ready, and hurried downstairs.
Thankfully, I could see Fumiko-san eating bread while going down the stairs.
Having noticed me, Fumiko gave her greetings.
“Ah, good morning, Haruki-kun. If you don’t mind, I got a few pieces of… these bread?” Fumiko confusingly stated.
“Ah, that’s a croissant.”
“Heh~… So this is a croissant.”
During our back and forth, I made my way down to the kitchen.
“Sorry, I overslept today. I was exhausted from yesterday’s events.”
“Ah yes, please don’t worry about it. I just woke up 30 minutes ago too!”
“I see. So, Fumiko-san, would you be fine with French toast for today’s breakfast?”
“Of course… That’d be great, actually. This is quite embarrassing, but I’ve never tasted French toast before. I heard it’s quite sweet, yes?”
“I guess. Do you wanna help me?”
“Would I be able to help you?”
After all, making French toast is really easy.
Whisk milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.
Lightly butter a griddle and heat over medium-high heat.
And Dunk the bread into the egg mixture, soaking both sides. Transfer them to the hot skillet and cook until golden.
I called Fumiko-san to the kitchen, and we began cooking.
But while cooking, I couldn’t shake the feeling that we resembled something… hmmm
Anyhow, after a few minutes, we were finally done and the final product was surprisingly amazing!
Well, there was one piece that I let Fumiko-san make entirely on her own. Sure, that wasn’t as good as the others, but it still looked fine.
We began eating, and before we knew it; we were finished.
On the couch, we watched some stuff together after cleaning the dishes.
It was there that it hit me.
‘Besides her now sleeping here… our activities together haven’t really changed, huh?’
Anyway, I decided that I’d ask Fumiko-san about our living arrangements after lunch. But for now, I’d like to relax while watching stuff together.
