I’ve gotten used to being Alone: Chapter 2

As I walk into the street where the itinerant shops are, it is still filled with young lovers. Nicole hesitated a little, but gathered up her courage and took a step forward.

When I peeked into the timid shop, the shopkeeper didn’t pay attention to Nicole and called out to her without concern. There were times when I was asked if I was alone, but when I answered yes, I wasn’t asked any further questions.

As I went through two or three shops, the scary feeling disappeared.

Being alone allows me to look at the things I like and eat the things I like, and move freely as I please.

And I was able to see the store that sold the bracelet I wanted last year. It was a bracelet made of white stones that glow in a rainbow of colors that can only be found in the neighboring country.

Nicole, who liked it at first sight, picked up the bracelet and spoke to the shopkeeper.

“Um, can you sell just one of these?”
Of course, it would be grateful if you buy even one.

Nicole was relieved and purchased the bracelet.

It was definitely the right decision to come alone. I’ll come alone next year too!

Nicole, who got what she wanted and saw what she wanted, returned home in a good mood.

By the way, when I saw the excited students because the itinerant market will be held this weekend, I remembered. Last year, I went with my fiancé, but I don’t remember what I saw. I guess I’ll have to go with him again this year.

Annoying… Even if I want to decline the invitation, it seems more troublesome to ruin my fiancé’s mood. There’s no helping it. It’s my fiancé’s duty.

Chaos thought about it and gave up.

(I wonder if a letter will come tomorrow)

Chaos, who decided to wait for Nicole’s invitation in a letter, did not receive a letter the next day or the next.

And so, before I knew it, it was the day before the itinerant market was held.

(Is she coming to invite me directly…?)

However, as time passed and Nicole did not show up, after school, Chaos went home.

(Is she planning to invite me to her house in the morning…?)

The next morning, I was preparing to go out and waiting, but Nicole didn’t show up.

Annoyed, I went to Nicole’s house, and when I asked where she had gone, I was suspiciously looked at as if she had left for the market. Nicole’s family seemed to have thought that she was going with Chaos.

(Went alone? … No, it can’t be. Did she go with her friends?)

Feeling let down, Chaos returned home with anger towards Nicole, who went to the market without saying anything.

The following week, Chaos saw Nicole at school and walked up to her.

“Hey, who did you go to the market with this weekend?”

Surprised, Nicole answered.

“I went alone.”
“Don’t lie.”

Nicole blinked.

“I’m not lying. I went alone.”

It was unbelievable all at once, but Nicole didn’t seem to be lying.

(Could it be that she really went alone?)

Chaos was horrified. The day the market is held is busier than usual. If a young lady were to wander around alone, she could get into trouble.

“Why didn’t you come to invite me?”

“Huh…”

Nicole looked as if she didn’t understand what was being said.

“When I invited you last year, you seemed uninterested and eager to leave early, so I thought it would be annoying if I invited you.”

Chaos remained silent. I seem to recall thinking it was troublesome to go out last year while thinking about it.

“That’s why, don’t worry about me.”

Nicole said that and quickly left. Chaos felt uneasy about that response, but couldn’t say anything.
