Alright, alright. I managed to clear up the misunderstanding!!! Kekeke…
With this, there shouldn’t be any more reports if I continue stalking Kikawa Moegi. I’m truly relieved. After that, I reported the school’s underground website to Rokudou-sensei, and that marked a temporary end to it. The school will investigate from here on. As for the person who posted on the internet… Well, I think it’s a guy from another class. There are always people who won’t take kindly to seeing me having two beautiful girls together. Or maybe they just found it amusing and engaged in such behavior. Those are the two possibilities.
As for the specific culprit… I don’t think I can identify them, but I can’t dwell on that alone. I’m satisfied for now that the misunderstanding has been cleared. Satisfied.
I zone out during the sixth period. Everyone seems serious, well, except for those boys sleeping. It doesn’t matter, yeah.
I still have time until the last day of midterm exams. Maybe I don’t need to forcibly interact with Kikawa Moegi? Harmless things should have gotten through to her.
Ding dong ding dong
“The class is over. Don’t forget to review.”
Every time, this teacher says something similar. I feel like they genuinely care about the students. I want to get decent grades too.
“Ah, damn, I fell asleep…”
Sasamoto woke up at the sound of the final bell.
“It’s better not to get a failing grade.”
“Yeah, I guess… Well, cramming all night should be fine.”
Saying that, he went back to sleep. He’s a typical example of a perpetual failing grade student.
After the homeroom before the end of the day, everyone starts preparing to leave early. Some students were seen discussing studying together later. I’m going home. I’m still okay.
“Well, I thought you might be worried about various things…”
“I’m not really worried. The internet is just like that. It has both truth and lies.”
“Is that so…”
“It’s not Gindou-san’s fault or anything, so don’t worry about it.”
“Your expression is different from usual, and I thought Gindou-san is a kind person, so I thought you might be thinking about that.”
From her, I could sense that she was really worried. The one at fault is the person who posted on the internet, not her.
“I really don’t think you need to worry. The internet is just like that. It has both truth and lies. If you let every little thing bother you, life will become suffocating. It’s just a rumor, so it’ll be fine.”
“You don’t have to thank me so much…but you’re welcome?”
“…Izayoi-kun is truly kind and amazing.”
“I think Gindou-san is a billion times more amazing, though?”
“Well, that’s not exactly…”
“I guess you’re right. I’m missing about three zeros there.”
“…..Fufufu, you’re good at making jokes.”
I genuinely think Gindou-san is more than a billion times amazing, but it won’t get through to her. She’s taking it as a joke. Well, it’s fine. I feel uplifted.
“Well then, I’ll be heading home now. See you tomorrow.”
“Yes, see you tomorrow.”
I leave the classroom. Today, I’ll go straight home.
Izayoi-kun. Ah, mou, what should I do?
My affinity for him keeps increasing. Normally, he should blame me, but he gave me such kind words. And on top of that, he even made a joke to cheer me up.
Reading subtleties from his expressions, it’s like we’re an old married couple. Honestly, the guilt was wiped away in the first half, and in the second half, I had to do my best to suppress my grin.
When someone is so kind to me, I can’t help but… No, no, no. That’s not good. It would be the worst if I were seen as an indecent woman. I must continue to play the role of an elegant and refined maiden. So far, I haven’t made any mistakes or said or done anything strange at all.
It’s fine. If I continue like this, I’ll be with him. Natsume-san has also given her approval. A pure maiden. I’m a maiden. I’ll continue to strive as a perfect, elegant, and refined maiden character.
But when will it happen? I can’t wait for too long. I want him. I want him.
If we start dating, what should I do? Should I start with GPS tracking? Or should I memorize his smartphone password? Ban him from eating anything except my homemade cooking? Restrict his relationships with other girls?… Well, there’s no point in thinking about it now. I’ll think about it gradually. [TL: Oh no….]
Come to think of it, I still haven’t exchanged contact information. I’m too embarrassed to ask.
In comparison, that girl… she easily got Izayoi-kun’s contact information… I’m envious. It’s almost a feeling of disgust. But at the same time, it’s not like I dislike her… No, I dislike her. I can’t accept that she got his contact information before me.
But I don’t have the courage to ask him right now. It’s embarrassing. Whenever I try to ask for Izayoi-kun’s contact information, I can’t help but feel embarrassed. I can’t bring myself to ask him to share his contact information.
Why was she able to do it? Natsume-san also said to learn from the enemy. Learn from her… I recently found out that her character is called “tsundere.” Is it worth a try? “Tsundere.”
I have a general grasp of her behavioral patterns. Lately, I’ve been accumulating knowledge of the 2D world, and I’m gradually becoming able to talk to Izayoi-kun indirectly. Let’s give it a try, the “tsundere” approach. It might have some effect on him. I might even be able to get his contact information.
“Good work, Hihara senpai.”
When I reached the school gate, Hihara Karen called out to me. She seemed less energetic than usual… She’s affected too. Both of them are kind, and I feel guilty for making them feel down. I should resolve this quickly!
“Don’t worry about it. The internet is a place where both truth and lies exist. If you let every little thing bother you, life will become suffocating. It’s just a rumor, so please don’t worry. I’m not so small-minded that I would be bothered by it, and it’s not your fault at all, Hihara senpai. If I see any signs of you worrying about it further, I’ll get angry!!!”
“Well, I haven’t said anything yet…”
“I can pretty much guess. You’re easy to read.”
“Ah, uhm, I see? I didn’t know what to say… Um, thank you…”
“Like I said, this hasn’t really been a conversation with you!? Why did you cut me off!? Is this some kind of speedrun?! It’s too early!?”
“It’s better to be energetic.”
“Wait, so you were trying to cheer me up?”
“Huh? Ah, well, yes.”
“You liar. You were enjoying it, weren’t you?”
“T-That’s not true.”
“Ugh… But I’m happy. Thank yo-“
“Like I said, let me finish my sentence already!!!”
Alright, she’s feeling better now. The strategy of breaking the gloomy atmosphere and turning it into an advanced comedic space was a success in returning her to her usual state. Gindou-san wouldn’t grasp this kind of meta feeling. It’s something only possible with.
“Got it? I’m older than you. It’s too early to tease me like that.”
“Well, it’s fine… But Izayoi, you’re really funny.”
“Do you think so? I think I’m just an ordinary guy.”
“Is that so?”
“Well, maybe my screws are a little loose.”
“Rather than saying your screws are loose, it feels like you’re just too kind. I worry a bit that you’ll get deceived by some weirdo in the future, with your kindness on par with a protagonist in a reincarnation story.”
“That’s not true.”
“Eh? About what?”
I am only kind to the girls. The virtuous protagonist of a reincarnation story is kind to anyone, but I choose who to be kind to. I don’t show kindness to everyone indiscriminately. I’m not that remarkable of a person.
“It’s a secret.”
“Haa?! Come on, tell me!”
“I’m sorry, but I can’t reveal it.”
“I’m really curious about mysterious things like that.”
“Well, it’s not that significant, so…”
“Uu~, it piqued my interest even more.”
“Will I be able to know it someday? That secret?”
“That might be impossible.”
“Huh? Now I’m even more curious.”
I can’t say it. The truth is that I’ve admired and loved you since my previous life, and I’m willing to do anything for you. I want to repay your kindness.
It’s embarrassing. And there’s no doubt they’ll think I’m insane.
“It’s really nothing special.”
“You keep saying that… Ah!”
“My parents… they told me to bring you home.”
“I will pass on that.”
“I’m tired of hearing it every day… I keep dodging the request each time, but it’s quite tough for me… I mean, the pressure is intense… If I don’t bring you to my home once, they might start picking you up directly from school in a car or something…”
“Eeh? That’s, well…”
“Then, come with me.”
“Even though it’s a joke, it’s awkward because I almost kissed their daughter, so I can’t go.”
“T-that’s true. But it’s already approved by my parents.”
“Isn’t that still not okay?”
“I think so too, right? Just once? It’s fine, right? The pressure from my parents keeps increasing day by day. Just once. okay?”
“Please ask me again another time.”
“You’re avoiding the issue.”
“It’s really awkward, I have to pass.”
It’s nothing but awkward. I jokingly tried to kiss their daughter, which is clearly messed up. No matter how you look at it, I must seem like a dangerous person. They probably called me over to their house under the pretense of having a favorable impression and might be planning to kill me. I absolutely won’t go.
“Haa… I don’t really want to do this kind of thing because it’s embarrassing…”
She looked up at me with slightly upturned eyes, almost pleadingly.
Th-That’s… the way you talk to me, damn, using a higher technique here that only a people with a good face can do. And it works for boys like me. You’re doing it, aren’t you?
But unfortunately, I’ve developed a resistance to beauties due to my constant interactions with Gindou Kohaku and Hihara Karen. I’m sorry, but I’ll have to decline.
“Yay! Then let’s go right away!”
Huh? I was planning to refuse, but my mouth just… She quickly typed something on her phone and pocketed it.
“Don’t dawdle, let’s go.”
“Uhm, afterall I…”
“You said you were going, right?”
It seems like I have no resistance to beautiful women after all.
Aah, mou, he’s as kind as I thought. This kind-hearted Izayoi!!!
Izayoi is an amazing guy who can both join in on the jokes and show consideration. He’s so perfect that I can’t help but think he’s my destined partner. Even though strange rumors might start circulating because of my involvement with Izayoi, he doesn’t seem to care and always lightens the mood with his funny remarks.
He’s just the best!! He’s beyond amazing!!! I want to be the main heroine!! Well, it’s probably too early for a special relationship, but…
Kukuku, it seems like looking up at him with puppy eyes is effective. Well, I’m pretty good-looking, after all. I mean, I’m the child of Mom and Dad. There’s no way their child wouldn’t be cute.
But, doing things like this is so embarrassing. Izayoi seemed quite conscious of it, though, so it’s fine. Should I continue doing this kind of thing in the future?
It’s embarrassing, but if it’s effective… I’ll do it. It’s embarrassing, but for some reason, I’ve been feeling unusually anxious lately. I have this worry that this chaos will only escalate in the future. Moegi-chan was a misunderstanding, but with Izayoi, I might actually succeed in winning him over.
Moegi-chan has an outstanding model-like figure, and she’s a girl. She possesses all the charms needed. Just in case, I need to do various things while I still can.
Izayoi is a boy. A young boy. And most likely, he doesn’t have resistance to girls. So, let’s try that approach next. The strategy of showing him a secret side of me that no one else knows. It said in a book that boys are pleased when you show them a side you don’t usually show.
A side I don’t usually show… What could it be? Tsundere? Yandere?
Whenever I hear the word “Yandere,” I can’t help but think of that person. Gindou Kohaku. It’s not confirmed yet. But maybe there are signs of her being a yandere. What if she awakens as a yandere and Izayoi turns out to be a Yandere lover!?
Should I practice? Showing a side I don’t usually show and acquiring the Yandere attribute in advance. It wouldn’t hurt to do it.
Izayoi’s advancing with great strides. I need to follow his lead.
But before that, there’s dinner tonight… Please, Mom and Dad. Don’t go overboard!!
I don’t want Izayoi to think of me in a strange way. So, please. With that in mind, I contacted them just now in a group’s chat.
[Izayoi is coming to our house today.]
Certainly, Mom and Dad are adults. Even if I say Izayoi is coming, they’ll respond calmly… At that moment, my phone rang. I checked it…
[Why didn’t you tell me sooner!? I’m going to buy a head-on sea bream!!!!]
[I’ll cook red bean rice. Congratulations.]
Aah… I’m getting anxious… My stomach is starting to hurt.
