“Wow~! It’s good that Akito-san finally recognized what needs to be done. Good work, Saki-chan,” Ayaka smiled.
“No, I just did what was expected of me.”
I made sure to convey everything about the volunteering job to Ayaka. While I still felt fear, my desire to do a good job was stronger than it was thanks to Saki.
“Since the busy season will be over by the latter half of this week, shall we meet up once then?” The president suggested.
“Yes,” we answered in turn.
“And as for the songs, we’re sticking with these three, so remember them.”
I checked the songs that were sent to the student council LINE group. “Huh, aren’t these the songs Saki was singing?” I’d only heard these for the first time yesterday with her singing. So this is how the original sounded like? “Isn’t Saki just way better…?” I couldn’t help muttering that last part.
“Wh-What?! Your praise will only get you more work!”
“It’s just a penalty game,” I tutted at her embarrassment.
“Okay, okay, thanks for the meal. But if you don’t get back to work soon, it’ll pile up!” While she had a smile on her face, the bulging vein on her forehead said otherwise. She didn’t like the open banter.
I tried to get back to work, but…
“Hehe, you’re all sad and single, aren’t you?” Saki did the unthinkable by teasing the prez and our colleagues. Bulging veins popped on all of them as Ayaka turned around with a “smile.” It didn’t look like one at all, lacking all the soothing nature of her usual carefree behavior.
“Saki. You’re picking a fight with all of us now, OK?”
“Mhm. if you’re in the mood for throwing hands, we’ll respond accordingly~!”
“Tooth for a tooth, eye for an eye.”
The other council members were practically fuming, but Saki was getting overconfident. “I was just speaking the truth~!” Just like that, she’d turned all the girls against her. I could hear an audible “snap,” as if someone just lost it.
“Rin-chan,” came the president’s orders.
“Eh?” Before she could react, Rin managed to tie her hands behind her back. She was fast.
“Leave it to me~!”
After Rin tied Saki down, Ayaka, Yuki, and Karen all turned and started to encroach on me. “Um, what?” I tried to walk back from their closing in on me, only to bump into the guest couch. I ended up sitting down on it. But before I could stand up and leave, Yuki kept me down by sitting on my lap, while Ayaka cuddled herself onto my left and Karen to my right.
They were practically glued to me. “Wh-what are you doing?!” Saki shouted, trying desperately to run over here, but Rin just firmly held her down.
“You’re in the wrong, Saki. Pipe down.”
“Grr…” She didn’t just look frustrated; she was livid.
“Um… What’s going on here…?” I dared ask.
“Hm? Oh, it’s righteous revenge on Saki-chan.”
“Excuse me?” I raised an eyebrow.
“We’re doing pseudo-NTR and giving her a taste of her own medicine.”
“What are you on about…?” For starters, what’s NTR? This unfamiliar term popped up and I didn’t know how to react.
“Basically, she’s been c*cked. We’ve taken her beloved Akito away~! Got it?”
“I guess?” Judging by Saki’s reaction, it was quite effective.
“C’mon Akito-kun~! I brought some pudding today~! I’ll feed it to you ♡” Ayaka propped a spoonful to my mouth.
“Stop! Don’t feed him like that! Ugh!”
“Ahn~!” I ate the pudding while Saki was losing it in the background.
“How is it? Delicious?” Ayaka asked as soon as I had a bite of her sweet.
“…Mhm,” I blushed. I had never imagined anyone apart from Saki doing this to me.
“Great! There’s tons of love poured into it ♡”
“It’s my turn next~!” Karen chirped.
“I’m sorry, forgive me! It’s all my fault!” Saki pleaded with a panic-ridden expression.
“Nope! Use this punishment to realize just how heavy the ‘single’ status is!” Rin wasn’t willing to let her go.
“Hey, Akky, what do you think of me?”
“Huh? You’re a nice person.”
“No, not that,” she pulled my arm into her ample bosom, locking eyes seductively with me. “I mean what do you think of me as a woman.”
“I can teach you a lot~ of things better than SakiSaki, y’know Akky?” She used both of our nicknames.
She was incredibly forward. So much so, that it was daunting for someone as romantically inexperienced as me.
“Just kidding~! My turn is over. I might just break SakiSaki if I continue, teehee~!” Karen said sorry with her tongue stuck out mischievously.
“Ugh… I can’t believe I’m being NTR’d in my office…” Saki hung her head, defeated.
I just want this to stop already…
“Alright. It’s my turn now,” Yuki, who had been sitting in my lap this whole time, turned to me with a sultry voice, “Hmm, you’ve gotten bigger! Looks like you were quite excited by me~♡!”
“It’s out! Too much, stop!!!” I couldn’t help but feel like a criminal with what the petite girl on my lap just said. I pushed them away forcibly.
“Ugh. We almost got to the steamy parts…”
“Let’s call it a day here.”
After hour-long minutes, Rin finally released Saki from her clutches, and Ayaka gently patted her shoulder as she lay slumped on her desk.
“Saki-chan, have you realized what happens when you do such things to us single folks?”
“Yes, I’m sorry… I’ve reflected on it after witnessing the whole NTR scene.”
“The whole scene?” I asked, still a bit confused.
“Yeah. To put it simply, Ayaka went after someone with a girlfriend, then Karen appealed to you as an easy girl just to lower your guard, and finally, I’d score the goal. In other words, this was a very graphic NTR story.”
“I won’t do something like that again. I was wrong,” Saki admitted, defeated.
“Yeah, yeah. You mustn’t do it again, okay?”
I feel bad saying this, but I think this was a good lesson for Saki. Just like the way she cornered Matsuyama, it might not be a bad thing for her to experience a backlash like this once in a while.
“Oh, Akito, there’s something on your cheek,” Rin mentioned, but I had a hard time figuring out where. “Just stay still, I’ll get it for you.” She took out a handkerchief and wiped my cheek.
“Oh, th-thank you.”
“It’s no big deal, don’t worry… By the way, what’s going on with you guys?”
“I see. So this is the real twist.”
“RinRin, you’re outrageous.”
“What do you mean?”
“Rin-chan, I never expected that from you…”
Saki only trembled in response to Rin’s actions.
“Me watching my boyfriend enjoy married life with another woman… My poor feelings…”
Rin completely knocked down whatever was left of Saki, who then spent the rest of the day at work in a daze, like a lifeless puppet without strings.
