Chapter 5 | The First Step in Looking Back at the Cuckold B*****d
We finished the closing ceremony in the school gym.
The second semester is now over, and we are going on winter break.
“Kusshun! Ugh… I’m sneezing.”
“Are you okay, Shin-chan?”
Next to me is my girlfriend, Rika Matsumoto.
She wears her dyed blonde hair half up.
She wears a mini skirt that almost shows her butt in this cold weather.
But she doesn’t look cold at all…
“Uh, yeah… Kushun!”
“Here, use this.”
Rika takes out a pocket tissue from her miniskirt pocket and hands it to me.
“Thanks. Matsumo…… Rika”
“Mmm. Very good. fufu♡”
I use the tissue I received from Rika.
I feel like I smell something sweet.
“Don’t get cold. Do you want a pocket warmer?”
She takes out a warmer from the pocket on the opposite side.
“No, no, I can’t be that spoiled… Kushun!”
“Here, I’ll give you this. Just keep warm, and don’t catch a cold.”
“I’m fine. I’ve rarely had a cold in recent times… but thanks.”
Rika smiles and says, “You’re welcome.”
It’s nice to see her smiling and being kind.
“Oh, yeah. Next is homeroom, and after that, it’s the end of the school day, but please wait for me. I’ve been summoned by Sensei.”
“Okay, but waiting for what…?”
“Of course, it’s so we can go home together.”
“What? We’re going home together?”
Why! Such a boyfriend-girlfriend-like… oh.
“I see, for the fake relationship.”
“Yes, that’s right. You mustn’t get the wrong idea! This is just a fake boyfriend and girlfriend relationship!”
That’s right. I’m a little sad. Even though I know it’s fake…
But I think Rika’s sympathy for me is true.
I’ll take it gratefully.
Then we arrived at the classroom.
“Okay, I’ll see you later.”
“Yeah, see you later.”
Our seats are far apart, so we parted.
The way my classmates look at me is scary.
They are whispering to each other
It’s been spreading in the class group line that I’ve broken up with my ex-girlfriend.
My ex-girlfriend Imoko is talking happily with a tall guy.
She looks at me for a moment and disgustingly smiles at me.
I don’t like that. I definitely don’t want to get involved.
When I was leaving the classroom after school…
“Hey, Otaku-kun. Can you give me a little face?”
Someone put his shoulder around me, unkindly.
I looked up and there he was, the man who had been talking to Imoko in a friendly manner.
“…Who are you?”
“Hey, hey, hey, that’s terrible, Otaku-kun? I’m a classmate of yours. You should at least remember my name, right?”
…that goes for you too, doesn’t it?
I’m not named Otaku-kun.
“I’m Kisogawa. Kisogawa Kasuji.”
Ah, I remember now.
He is one of the top castes of the class, a cheerful guy.
He is popular among the girls because of his height and sweet face.
I remember hearing that his brother works for a great publishing company.
I remember he was always bragging about it.
And above all, Kisogawa is the one who stole Imoko from me.
“Hey, hey, hey, I’ve got something to say. Follow me.”
“… No, um, I, I… that…”
S**t! It’s hard to communicate when you’re talking to a cheerful person!
“Just come! I’ve got something good for you too!”
What do you mean by “good news”?
But when I saw that smirk on his face, I felt really bad.
In the end, I couldn’t say no, and Kisogawa-kun took me to the rooftop.
“Oh, Karumi~. Sorry to keep you waiting!”
“Right. It’s Shiojiri Karumi.”
Shiojiri-san is a tall girl.
And a gal.
If Rika is a modern gal, Shiojiri is a classic gal.
Her skin is tanned, her hair is dyed a bright color and wavy.
She’s also dressed sluggishly. Is there such a gyaru nowadays?
“So, what’s the matter? Kisogawa-kun and Shiojiri-san.”
He puts his arm around my shoulder and smiles wryly…
I could tell in an instant that he was looking down on me.
“I just wanted to apologize to you, Otaku-kun.”
“Apologize for what…?”
“Look, it’s about Imoko. I’m going out with your girl!”
He doesn’t look sorry at all, even though he says he’s sorry.
“I guess it was bad timing. The day after you broke up with her, we started going out. I was worried that Otaku-kun might think I was sleeping with her.”
Of course, that’s not the case.
You slept with Imoko!
I know you had an affair with her!
But he thinks I don’t know about the affair.
Because I’m not a member of the group line.
But, I have a collaborator, Rika.
That’s why your evilness is known to me!
I want to tell him… but I can’t yet.
Rika and I promised each other that revenge would be at the end of the third semester.
Until then, I must remain an ignorant otaku.
Kisogawa-kun, oblivious to my feelings, continued.
“I felt bad, so I decided to introduce you to a girl! So, I prepared Karumi for you!”
“Saying you prepared me is terrible.”
“Well, well, well, Karumi. See? How is it? Karumi. You guys should hook up together.”
I asked Kisogawa-kun, who was smiling at me with a grin.
“Why are you trying to get this person and me together, Kisogawa-kun?”
“I have good intentions. I’m going to help a heartbroken classmate, don’t you understand my good intentions?”
What good intentions…
I realized everything.
I was right. There was a group line where a fake girlfriend was given to me and later revealed to be a lie.
Maybe that’s it.
Shiojiri-san is in on it with Kisogawa-kun.
He will say later that it was actually a prank.
Otherwise, there is no way that Kisogawa, who is a high-caste person, would be so nice to me.
In short, it’s like bullying the weak.
“Karumi’s got big boobs, she’s pretty sweet, and I think she’s perfect for you. She’s too good-looking to waste, you know? Do you know? It wouldn’t hurt to go out with her, would it?”
I guess he’s expecting me to jump up and down with joy here…
Later, he would tell me I was being an idiot and that it was a lie, and he would take great pleasure in seeing me depressed.
What a b*****d!
But, I won’t play into your hands!
“Sorry, no thanks.”
“Oh, well, no thanks eh?”
“Huh? What do you mean?”
Both Kisogawa-kun and Shiojiri-san looked blank.
If someone like me, a nonmotivated, in-the-shadows guy, had been told that I could go out with a beautiful woman like Shiojiri-san, I would have jumped at the chance.
In fact, if I didn’t know anything about it, I might have fallen for the trap.
But, I know.
I know that this guy is the kind of a*****e who would sleep with my girlfriend and brag about it.
And I know.
I know that there is a kind gal behind me who supports me.
“I’m sorry Kisogawa-kun, but I can’t go out with Shiojiri-san.”
“Oh, come on! You’ve got to be kidding me. A guy like you will never have a chance to date a beautiful woman like her again.”
Why the aggressive tone?
Oh, well, that’s okay. I’m sure you’re probably right.
“Anyway, I’m sorry. I can’t do it. See you then.”
“Well, why do you say it’s impossible? I’m curious.”
Shiojiri-san asked me with a curious look on his face.
Did she feel rejected? I don’t think she’s too shocked.
Well, that’s probably true.
I’m sure she’s absolutely, positively, 100% in collusion with Kisogawa behind the scenes.
I’d rather Kisogawa-kun… ah, screw it.
Kisogawa seems to be in a hurry.
“Hey! What do you mean it’s impossible? I’m doing something good for you!”
What? good thing? You make me laugh.
You’re just trying to have fun by tricking me.
You’re frustrated because your plan didn’t work.
I know exactly what you mean.
“I’m sorry. I’m already dating someone.”
“What? Don’t lie to me! Who’s that?”
Kisogawa grabbed me by the chest.
Ha, what’s that? Are you mad at me?
Did you think I was lying? disappointing! …but that’s a lie.
“Rika. Matsumoto Rika.”
“It’s Rika! You… don’t lie to me!
“I’m not lying. If you want, I can call her.”
I took out my phone and tried to make a LINE call.
[What’s wrong, Shin-chan?]
I put it on speaker mode so Kisogawa can hear it.
[You’re late. How long are you making me wait? I told you we were going home together.]
Kisogawa was shocked.
Because it seemed like Rika and I are really going out.
“Oh, sorry Rika. I’m going now.”
[Yes♡♡ I’ll wait for you♡♡ I’ll wait for you forever♡♡]
Rika says in a sweet voice.
She sounds like a girl who is so happy to talk to her boyfriend!
She’s got the acting down perfectly! As expected of Rika. I’m sure she doesn’t know that Kisogawa is here, does she?
“Anyway, now you get it, right?”
“No way. A shady piece of trash like you can’t get a girl.”
Oh, I see.
So, I guess the group line didn’t know that Rika and I were dating as a sacrifice.
That’s why they thought that Rika and I were dating.
Just like Imoko.
“I’m making my girlfriend wait for me. See you later.”
You were trying to set me up, but it didn’t work out and you’re frustrated.
I’m sorry to hear that. Your shallow plan has already been exposed.
“S**t! What the hell! What the hell is wrong with this plan? Damn it!”
“Ah, just suck it up Kasuji.”
I feel a little better, I guess.
But I still haven’t recovered from the psychological damage he did to me.
Revenge is yet to come.
It’s not mandatory but if you like my TLs and want to support me you can do it on Ko-fi and Patreon.
