Chapter 92:

My True Home

New Leaf!

Together, we walked through Beattie’s Heart. The place was so lively with people, and the architecture made the place so joyful and great to be at. I can’t believe this is only my second time coming here.Bookmark here

“Okay.”Bookmark here

“Um…”Bookmark here

We spoke at the same time when we stopped on the side of traffic.Bookmark here

My eyes widened and I pointed at Ren.Bookmark here

“Oh, sorry! What were you saying?”Bookmark here

“Oh, nothing really… You go.”Bookmark here

“R-Right…”Bookmark here

Hm… My only concern is that I’m probably being an inconvenience to Ren. This trip is supposed to be for me but I don’t know where to go… And I don’t have a strong interest in interior design, so I’m okay with anything… So…”Bookmark here

“So Ren, I’m-”Bookmark here

“Oh, and please don’t apologize.”Bookmark here

“M-Mind reader!”Bookmark here

What? How’d he know that I was going to apologize? Woah… I’m glad I befriended him…Bookmark here

I shook his head.Bookmark here

“Not really. It’s more like an assumption based on the evidence…”Bookmark here

He put his finger on his chin as he thought.Bookmark here

“Well, I kinda figured that you would apologize — I mean, it’s kind of your signature thing…”Bookmark here

“True…”Bookmark here

“During our first shopping trip here, you apologized because you did not know which clothes to get. You’re probably worrying about a similar thing, but for decor.”Bookmark here

“Y-Yeah…”Bookmark here

Ren shrugged.Bookmark here

“I don’t intend to recite it again, but remember that this won’t be the only time we go here. And remember that I’m affluent and you have a job…”Bookmark here

“Hm…”Bookmark here

A determined look spread through my face and I put my hands on Ren’s shoulders.Bookmark here

“You know, you’re right! Ren, let’s do this.”Bookmark here

“O-Okay… But we’re just shopping, so you don’t have to be so serious…”Bookmark here

Bookmark here

And so, we went to a ton of different shops. After about two hours, were left with pretty large shopping bags. Bookmark here

Okay, here is what we have bought so far! The first thing we did was go to this place where things for the bed were sold. So, we bought a set of really comfortable pillows. And after, we bought a bed set — it had a blue colour palette with a striped design, and everything was so soft. Like, when I tried it at the shop and tried it, I almost fell asleep… Actually, I did… fall asleep…Bookmark here

“Ah! Ren, why didn’t you wake me up?”Bookmark here

“Oh? S-Sorry, but you looked comfortable and I didn’t want to disturb you…”Bookmark here

“Ah! With the nap I took earlier, my sleep schedule is definitely going to get effed up!”Bookmark here

“S-Sorry…”Bookmark here

Eh, I wasn’t really mad about it.Bookmark here

Next, we went clothes shopping again! According to Bailey, she expected me to have a cuter sleep set. But whatever — the clothes that Ren lent me are still good, dammit! Bookmark here

I’m not really a fashion diva, so I just choose what works. Like, if I need a shirt, I’ll buy a shirt. And if I need pants, I’ll buy a set of pants. But if I see clothes that look comfy, I’ll buy those instead. And it’s not like I’m totally oblivious to my tastes. Like, if I see a sweater with a cool design, I’ll buy that sweater. And if I see something with colours I like, I’ll buy that thing. And if I see a cool HAL Ally or Rebel Quest design, I’ll probably buy those…Bookmark here

“Hey Ren, what do you think about this one?”Bookmark here

“Oh… Camryn, you know we’re in the men’s section, right?”Bookmark here

“Eh? So it’ll probably be big on me… But do they have this one in women’s mode!?”Bookmark here

“Um…”Bookmark here

“I see… But do you think I’ll grow into the smallest one?”Bookmark here

“Um…”Bookmark here

And lastly, we went to a toy store! I thought I wouldn’t totally child out and become giddy here, but I totally did child out and become giddy here. But who wouldn’t? Oh, it’s anyone that’s not me… But whatever. The things here were so cool. Like, there were many things that caught my attention! Boardgames… Balls… These things with wheels that looked cool… Wow!Bookmark here

“Huh? Ren, what’s this? It’s Cente Tower!”Bookmark here

“Yeah… There are a bunch of bricks, and you build a replica of the tower.”Bookmark here

“Eh? Really? Oh, that’s so cool… Oh, but the price… So expensive…”Bookmark here

“...”Bookmark here

“Are you going to say something?”Bookmark here

“Hm? About what?”Bookmark here

Oh well… At that toy store, we just bought some cute plushies that would decorate my bed…Bookmark here

Oh, I forgot about one thing — we actually went to a furniture shop. There, we decided to buy a chair, a wardrobe, a dresser, and a work desk. All of them were brown, so they neatly match each other! And they were all ordered, so they are arriving tomorrow… Bookmark here

Really, I’m so excited about this.Bookmark here
