mes spends more than an hour serving Sasaki, who is a regular customer.
Normally, it’s not possible to use that much time with one customer if there are other customers in the store.
It’s due to the special treatment because the owner Miki and Sasaki’s mother are acquaintances.

“But, can I ask you one thing, Toma-chan…? Serving Sasaki-san is quite beneficial, right? After all, I think Sasaki-san is the most beautiful among the customers who come to this store.”

“I… I won’t deny that.”

That girl always clings to you, Toma-chan.
I don’t know if it’s because of alcohol or what… it’s really tough.”

“It is.

The word “tough” here includes not only taking care of a drunken person but also maintaining self-control.
There are individual differences in the actions of drunken people, such as those who fall asleep or suddenly start shouting, or those who touch others’ bodies.
Sasaki sometimes falls into the latter category.

“If you like, you can take Sasaki-san home after work.
Toma-chan, you are also a college student, and I think one of your major desires is already awakening.”

“What do you mean, ‘if I like’? Miki-san, if that statement reaches Sasaki-san’s mother, you’ll be in trouble.”

While Toma seriously warned her, Miki was not making a frivolous statement.

“It’s okay, I’m absolutely sure I won’t get in trouble.
I can bet my life on this store.”

Toma realized that Miki was not bluffing or pretending, but really meant it.
Why she had so much confidence to stake her store on it… that’s a story for another time.

“Why… why are you so sure?”

“Oh my… if I tell you, it won’t be interesting, right? …It’s not respecting Sasaki-san’s feelings…”

Speaking with a naturalness as if breathing, Miki muttered to herself in a way that didn’t reach Toma’s ears.

“Just, Toma-chan, you need to be a bit… no, a lot sharper.
Your consideration is perfect, but in that area, it’s lacking.”

“Eh, what…?”

“Well, that’s just Toma-chan’s way of doing things… For now, just show your usual communication skills and do your best, okay?”

“Ah, yes.
Of course.
I’m getting paid a lot of money, after all.”

Toma couldn’t quite understand what Miki was trying to say, but he didn’t pay it much mind.

“You’re so serious, Toma-chan.
You should relax a bit more… but if I say that, my husband will get mad at me.”

“I can’t afford to make mistakes while working.
I’ve been helped by you, Miki-san, many times before.”

“I can see your effort, so I won’t get angry.
It’s only natural as a business owner.”

The hourly wage at this bar, Shine, is quite high at 1,200 yen even in the evening.
It’s thanks to Miki’s good nature and her valuing each employee that they need to show their worth to match the wage.

“Well… let’s finish this small talk and head out front.
I’ll be heading to the counter soon, so could you tell my husband to go to the back?”


Toma immediately switched on his work mode and responded with a different tone.
And then he left for the front before Miki did.


“Mi-chan… She seems to be having a hard time.
She’s making such obvious attacks, but Toma-chan doesn’t even seem to notice.”

Miki showed an indescribable expression as she looked at the closed door where Toma left.
