Hello! I recently read a story from a collection of one-shots, but I forgot its title. As far as I remember, the story went like this:

Our heroine, a university freshman, moves from Aomori prefecture to Tokyo. There she gets acquainted with a seemingly friendly and fashionable woman and through her, she meets a popular guy during lunch. As she considers herself an unfashionable country bumpkin, the girl does not like this guy who asks her to talk in her Aomori dialect. To make things worse, he suddenly declares that he prefers girls like her over fashionable ones and therefore, the bond to her new acquaintance is severed.
The only thing she enjoys are her phone calls with a high school friend who attends university in a city close to Tokyo. However, she envies her girl friend when she continues to hear about how well her friend gets along with her fellow students, and their relationship almost turns sour.
During this time, the flashy guy from the cafeteria gets closer to her and starts to hang out at her place as she lives by herself. He regularly makes passes at her, and although she has warmed up to him, she refuses to believe that he is serious about his advances.
One day, when she meets up with her girl friend, the resentment on both sides breaks out, but they manage to talk everything through. It turns out that her friend was also lonely and ungroundedly envious of her, and they reconcile.
At the end of the story, the guy tells her that he is also from Aomori.

I already searched for manga tagged with "Country Bumpkin Moves to City" and "Country Girl", but I couldn't find it. This one-shot was the fifth part of a collection, and it was published either as a Shoujo or a Josei manga. The rest of the one-shots were nothing special, so I don't remember much about them, but I would be grateful if you could find this one for me.
Thanks in advance!
