Bullet has announced their next volume of 執着eye!
Bright, earnest, compassionate, and a leader admired by everyone around him, 白鷹陽介 (Shirataka Yousuke) was someone I was proud to call “my boyfriend.”
I spent my college days alongside Yousuke, and when we finally found jobs after graduation, we started living together. I was ecstatic to finally start my career with such a wonderful boyfriend by my side. However, just as I thought life was sailing smoothly, a dark shadow started to loom over our lives.
Rumors about me cheating on my boyfriend, and rumors about me being a social climber started to circulate in my company.
Isolated and ostracized from the rest of my peers, I fought alone, and felt exhausted.
During this dark period, even the smallest incident led me to distrust my boyfriend.
That’s why I told Yousuke that I wanted to be alone, and that we should break up.
While he was surprised at first, he told me that if it was for my well-being, he would agree.
“I’m sorry I was such an unreliable boyfriend…”
He was nice until the end. I wasn’t worthy of him.
Yousuke worked at a real-estate company, and asked me to let him help out when it came to moving to a new place.
“At least let me do this one last boyfriend-like thing for you.”
I indulged him.
A few weeks before I was to move, I felt like I had been saved by Yousuke’s kindness. I was content with this new relationship we had constructed together as two friends.
While the future that lay ahead wasn’t the one we imagined when we were living together, this was still ok…
