Part 333-0 and it's a short update anyway, so here it is!
"Alright. I'll spend the day with you. But if we go into the city during the day, I don't think there'll be any Dead around?"
"I don't care about that. I just wanted to walk around, so even if it is daytime, it doesn't matter."
"......? What, aren't we making up for last night and going to look for vampires?"
"Yes, of course we'll look tonight. But to have you help me all day and night would be hard, so during the day I thought we could relax."
"I think that'd be more fun too. But, just the two of us walking around, that's......"
like what they call a date in the real world.
...... Maybe you can't say that with a vampire like Arcueid, but I suppose she's telling me to take her out for some fun.
For me, I----I need to get ready mentally and...
"Whoa, wait, hold on... I'm still a vir-"
Without any danger, without any purpose, if the two of us just walk around, I might notice something I never noticed before, and it makes me hesitate----
Dude, you were noticing it five minutes ago. Scroll up if you don't believe me.
"Shiki? Hey, are you going to school after all......?"
"...... No way. I said I'd do it, so I will. I don't know what you're thinking, but walking around shouldn't be a problem."
"Then it's decided. Then let's go."
She walks toward the window she snuck in earlier.
"Wait a minute. I'm going to change, so can you just look outside for a while?"
"What, did you call me?"
"Oh, yes, no! Just go outside, I'll be there soon."
"Okay, I'll wait outside. I've waited this long, so don't make me wait any longer, Shiki..."
There's that cat comparison again.
"...... This isn't the time to be impressed. I too have to sneak out without Hisui noticing."
I change into some normal clothes.
Cracking open the door slightly, I look around to make sure no one's in the hallway and tip-toe outside.

"What is it? This isn't like you at all. Did something happen again just now?"
"...... No, nothing really."
I said the 'again' part strong, but her words are still hollow.
----It seems like she's planning something. I feel kind of scared.
This is Arcueid you're talking about. Arcueid doesn't 'plan'.
"...... Are you feeling sick because it's daytime? There's no need to force yourself to go out. If it's hard for you, we can stop."
"I dashed here with all my strength and snuck into your room...... but it seems strange when I think about it now.
Why was I so angry back then? It was just a little promise."
Saying she doesn't get it, Arcueid crosses her arms in thought.
I did say it was short.
