Me and My Cat (Girlfriend)
Nightmares and Anxiety
Day 4, Part 3
Suddenly, it looked like Mina’s body had gone transparent.
I can see things behind her… and Mina seems to have noticed as well.
「Hey, Mina, isn’t your body turning transparent?!」
「……..I’m sorry. I forgot to tell you something important…」
The moment I heard that, I somehow knew what was going to happen.
「Mina, please don’t go….」
「Sorry, it was decided from the start…」
To be told that everything could be made right — for something to be returned just to have it taken away again….God — no, Nekomata-sama is cruel.
I embraced Mina’s body as if holding her would keep her from fading away.
Even though I had finally recognized my own feelings…..
….And yet, my arms passed right through Mina’s body.
「I didn’t say it before, but I can only be here for 3 days.」
「That’s horrible…….why didn’t you tell me?」
Grief and despair—these feelings overflowed and became tears.
I wasn’t so naive as to think that I’d be together with Mina forever, and yet――
I still didn’t want to believe that we would be separated like this again.
「I…because if I did it this way…I could make you smile.」
「You’re unfair Mina….」
Even though her hand reached out to pat my head, I could barely feel her touch…
「Sorry……but, I love you…..」
Hearing Mina’s voice, my tears began to fall.
「Me too…..I love you, Mina….」
Moving my face towards her, closing my eyes….
No matter how long I waited, my lips didn’t reach Mina’s.
When I opened my eyes, Mina was gone without a trace.
「…..What’s the matter?」
Opening my eyes, I saw Mina looking at me with a curious expression.
Lightly touching Mina’s body, I could feel, for sure, a person’s warmth.
As I reflexively hugged her, her smell-her softness, everything was there.
I’m so glad that was—everything was—just a bad dream.
「Did you have a bad dream?」
Through the arms that embraced me, my heart, which had nearly frozen over, was given renewed warmth.
I want these hands to touch me more…….as my mind concluded thus, my heart began rapidly melting.
「So it was a scary dream….your body, it’s shaking.」
Only after being told this did I notice: my body has been shaking this whole time.
This is how much she—how much Mina’s existence—means to me.
「Thank you, sorry for worrying you.」
Smiling with all my might, I looked at Mina’s face for what seemed like an eternity.
「It’s alright. After all, I love you Kasumi.」
It’s just before noon. I should still be able to eat lunch―
「Can I also sleep with you?」
Mina, who liked to sleep when she was still cat, hasn’t changed.
My emotions were probably so strong that they were mixed into that dream.
I have become aware of this blazing passion.
For sure, as long as we don’t separate, this flame will never go out.
I still can’t sleep facing her. Feeling her hugging me from behind, I began to ask:
「What is it?」
「You won’t…suddenly disappear, right…?」
Just remembering that dream, my tears were about to overflow.
「Mou~, what are you saying?…..Of course, that is absolutely impossible.」
The hands that embraced me tightened. And inside my chest, relief bubbled out.
My tensed consciousness loosened, and I fell asleep.
This time, I hope it will be a good dream.
