Chapter 39: The plain girls’ point of view
I’m sorry to bother you all of a sudden, but I’m Hana Tanaka from Class 1C!
Ah, please listen to this as if it’s a cry from my heart.
I’m a very plain and secretive girl in the classroom, so I don’t have any friends.
But I do have a couple of special skills: I can read people and I have terrific hearing.
Ahahaha, I’m a simple and shady person, I need to be sensitive to everything to survive…….Seriously, I’m sorry to be alive. ……
The class I’m in, first year C, has a relatively calm student population, and I find it more peaceful than the other classes. I mean, there are too many handsome and beautiful girls in this school!?
My seat is by the window, second from the back. Behind me is a boy named Shinjo-kun, …….
I was so surprised when I first saw him in class. …… Why is the main character of “Tokimeki Princess! The Story of Senki” here!? I thought …….
I’m really surprised at how handsome he is. And the negative aura is terrible, terrible.
There are many shady protagonists in games and anime, but Shinjo-kun really gives off a hint of darkness. ……
From the very beginning of the school year, the girls in the classroom felt like they couldn’t talk to Shinjo-kun even if they wanted to. Occasionally, I see girls who are brave enough to confess their feelings or talk to him, but most of the time, they end up losing.
There were a lot of rumors about Shinjo-kun. He is said to be a violent man, a man who has attempted a crime, a man who beats up delinquents at karaoke, a man with a terrible personality, a man who is self-centered, …… and many more, but to be honest, I have not heard any good rumors about him.
I don’t honestly know what the truth is, because lately there have been rumors denying the rumors.
Well, you know, rumors are just rumors, and I’m not interested in them.
Haa, I didn’t think he was the brother of Haruka Shinjo from the next class. She’s famous because she’s very athletic and helps out with club activities. And she’s cute.
I don’t know how many girls were charmed by the smile Shinjo-kun gave to his sister. …… That was a bad idea …….
The gap between his usual unsociable face …….
In addition, I’m seated in front of Shinjo-kun and the others, so I can hear a little of what Shinjo-kun and Shinozuka-san are saying.
Yankee (temporary) Shinozuka-san.
It’s really precious. ……. I mean, she’s acting like a yankee, but what a cute creature.
No, of course her face is an angel, but she has a really nice personality. ……
I don’t want to ask, but my ears have evolved so much that I can hear everything!
Shinozuka-san’s evolution is no less than Shinjo-kun’s!
They used to be so tough, but now they’re whispering each other’s names!
The two of them are too dangerous!
I want to say out loud, “Why is there a bad rumor about this girl?”
But I can’t say that because I’m a plain girl. …… I can understand why Miyazaki-san and others tried so hard to erase the bad rumors.
And …… what was that conversation earlier? I’m really starting to get nervous listening to this!
It’s like they’re a couple that just started dating! I know they’re not actually together yet, but why don’t they just get married?
The person sitting next to me is a baseball idiot named Yamada, ……. He doesn’t listen to people at all, he’s stupid, he’s dull, he’s always talking to me, he’s annoying, he’s stupid …….
Before I knew it, recess was over and my math teacher, homeroom teacher Mashima-sensei, walked into the classroom.
The class begins without a hitch. I tried to concentrate on the class, but–
“Hey, Tanaka ……, can you lend me a mechanical pencil and eraser? I was playing in the club room and forgot them! Whoa, that’s Tetsuro’s stuff!”
Oi, why are you talking to me in class?! Borrow it from Matsubara-san, who has a tough personality, sitting next to you! What the hell is that!?
“Y-you’re talking too loud ……. I- I’m going to use the eraser too, give it back to me …….”
“Ou! Thank you! I’ll use it like it’s yours! Oh, did you cut your hair? You look great! You look like Tetsuro’s pet!””
I heard a loud sigh from the podium.
Our homeroom teacher, the cool beauty Eri Mashima-sensei, took one look at Yamada.
“…… Hey Yamada, you’re making too much noise during my math class. If you want to get along with the …… girls, do it during recess.”
Yamada stood up and replied cheerfully.
“I’ve got it! Tanaka, let’s talk during recess! You like Tetsuro, right?”
“…..That’s why I told you to do it later. …… You are always so good with your replies. ……”
The class was in a whirlpool of laughter. It wasn’t that Yamada had done anything in particular. But before I knew it, Yamada was making the class laugh.
There are few students who dislike Yamada, who is stupid but straightforward. It’s not like they’re laughing at him, but they’re smiling at him.
“Hey, Yamada ……, sit down, you’re embarrassing me …….”
Yamada gave me a very muddy smile.
He’s really different from the stylish Shinjo-kun in the back seat. Even though he is the rear of the baseball team, he doesn’t go near Saito-san’s group and acts unpredictably. ……
So why is my face getting all hot and bothered ……? It’s all Yamada’s fault.
Look, Shinjo and the girl are whispering and flirting in the back. “Yamada is amazing. …… Natural, it smells just like Haruka. ……” “Makoto, you should be a little more foolish.” “No way, I heard from your mom, Pomeko, when you were a kid–” “I-Idiot?! S-stop it—- ” What are they talking about?
Kuhaa ……, my heart was about to vomit blood. It’s a family affair,…….
I took a deep breath and calmed myself down, and for some reason Yamada had moved his desk to mine!
“Sorry! I forgot my textbook in the club room too! Tanaka, let me have a look at yours ……”
“Ah, eh? …..I-I-I don’t mind….. Here——“
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute!? W-what are you doing? Why are you so close? Ah, and Saito-san in the seat in front of me is looking back and smiling warmly at me! …… Oh, you rear-ender.
I couldn’t stop the heat from my body. …… Hey, you don’t smell like sweat for a baseball player. Why do you have a floral scent ……
W-Well, Yamada doesn’t make me nervous, so it’s fine. ……
“Huh. What’s with the red face? Do you have a fever? Come here.”
Yamada touched my forehead. I stiffened up. ……
“Anri, are these guys dating?” ” I’ve never heard of them. Damn, they’re flirting with each other.” ” ……Does Pomeko like to talk about love?” “I-Idiot…..What girl wouldn’t like that ……”
S-stop …… My HP is already at zero. ……. I mean, what kind of nickname is Pomeko that keeps popping up……
–I-I don’t want you guys to be the only ones to tell me that we are flirting .……
