Title: The thing I want
「And so, I am glad you have all been able to gather here today–」
My friend talked with us in her wedding dress.
「You look wonderful, it really suits you very well.」
Really wonderful, a really well-matched couple.
「Congratulations on your wedding!」
I’m….Jealous of you two.
When I got back home it was already passed 11 pm. The day was about to end.
A kind voice replied. I can’t see her so she’s probably in the bathroom.
I left my luggage at the entrance of the living room and took off my coat.
“I need to take of this party dress”, even though I thought about it, my body wasn’t able to fight against my fatigue.
Not caring about what could happen to the dress, I fell on the bed.
The sound of a door opening resounded from the bathroom. I could hear the sound of slippers sliding through the floor.
Not raising my body, I only informed her I was home with my voice.
「Un, welcome home.」
Turning my face towards the left, I could see the face of the one I love smiling which made my face loosen up.
「Want some beer?」
Showing my approval, I slowly rose. After getting a beer from the refrigerator, I talked to her from behind while she was looking for some side dish.
「My friend, she looked really happy.」
Leaving a small silent moment, she answered.
I heard a quiet reply.
「They were smiling.」
Talking to the back of my lover. There was no reply this time.
「The wedding dress was really pretty.」
I didn’t mind, I just wanted her to listen to what I had to tell her.
「You see, everyone at the hall told them “you match”, “wonderful”. They gave their blessing of happiness to them.」
The words overflowed through my cheeks, I couldn’t properly breathe.
「Me too, I also congratulated them with all my heart, I want them to be happy. But still, I thought of how envious it is.」
Ah, this is bad, there will be stains on the dress. After leaning my head back, a calm me whispered.
「Bouquet toss, I also participated in it so I should also be able to-」
As tears started falling from my eyes I became unable to say what I really wanted to. The words left my lips but the overflowing dropping tears wouldn’t stop. I could see my lover’s face distorting, but even then, I could understand that she was crying.
「Hey, why is it that 2 women can’t marry each other?」
There was no reply to that question.
A really painful mutter reached my ears. I don’t know if it really was an apology but I have to say this.
「You are not to blame.」
Surely, no one is to blame.
I’m not really the greedy type but, right now, there is one thing I really want. Just one piece of paper.
Not something that makes money, not something that fills your stomach, only a very thin and unreliable paper, that’s all I ask for.
That is, a legal proof of our relationship.
Suppressing my thoughts, I hugged her while crying. And in near future, I wish for the day that I’ll be allowed to have that bond with her.
Short and bittersweet.
Remember, the Goddess loves you.
