Chapter 122: Aquarium.
I took the train to the aquarium with Shi-chan, as promised.
When we arrived in front of the aquarium, Shi-chan was already in a state of excitement.
Today, Shi-chan was wearing a navy dotted French dress with a beige tailored jacket over her shoulders, and needless to say, she looked stylish and cute in her autumn/winter outfit.
“Then, let’s go!”
She hugged me happily with both hands, not caring about her surroundings at all.
So I, too, felt the joy of being attached to Shi-chan and decided to look around the aquarium with her without worrying about my surroundings.
As we entered the aquarium, we saw a wide variety of fish, and it was truly fish heaven.
To put it bluntly, I had no knowledge or experience in dating girls, so I chose this aquarium for the simple reason that it was a date, but it was actually quite interesting when I arrived.
I enjoyed just looking around at the many mysteries of the sea with Shi-chan, such as fish I had never seen before and small, cute jellyfish.
“Look, Takkun! This fish has a funny face!”
“Haha, it’s true, he looks like an old man.”
Shi-chan laughed happily next to me.
We were not in a hurry to get to the next place, but we were having a great time looking around the aquarium, sharing our impressions.
I don’t think we’ve ever been on a proper date before, but it was nice to go out and spend some time alone together like this.
The feeling that we were out there, but sharing time together, made me very happy—.
Having looked around the aquarium, we went to the next stop, the dolphin show—- which unfortunately we didn’t go to.
Or rather, this aquarium didn’t have it in the first place.
We decided to leave the aquarium and take a short break at a nearby cafe.
It was a nondescript chain café, but it was still strange to feel a sense of specialness just because it was the first time we entered a café in a new place.
“That was fun, I didn’t think there were that many fish.”
“Really. I was surprised myself.”
We enjoyed having tea together while discussing our impressions.
I never would have come to the aquarium if I were alone, but with Shi-chan, I kept discovering new things.
That alone filled my heart with joy.
I realized how much the world looks different when I am with my favorite girl.
“We still have time, what should we do?”
“Right, it’s probably too early to go home now.”
But since we couldn’t stay at the aquarium for hours on end, it was still a little too early to go home, so we talked about what we should do.
To be honest, I would have been happy to go anywhere with Shi-chan, but that wasn’t the answer, so I tried my best to think of a place to go.
“Oh, there’s a place I’d like to go……”
“Hmm? Where is it?”
“Uhm, I’d like to go ……an Internet cafe.”
Eh? An internet cafe? Why?
I was a little surprised at the unexpectedness of the place Shi-chan said she wanted to go.
“T-that’s fine, but why an Internet cafe?”
“I don’t really have a reason, but I just wanted to see what it was like.”
Shi-chan told me the reason in a way that was blatantly false as she looked away.
She was acting suspicious and easy to understand today, and I tried to hold back my laughter as I replied.
“I see, okay then. Let’s go to the Internet cafe.”
“Is that okay? Yaay!”
I wanted to know what Shi-chan was up to, so I agreed to go to the Internet cafe while letting her swim around me, as if she was up to something.
Shi-chan, who didn’t seem to notice my scheme to return the favor, was genuinely happy to be able to go to a internet cafe for the first time.
So we went back to our hometown and entered a internet cafe.
We went into a pair of seats in an ordinary nekafe, and went into a private room with a manga and a drink in our hands.
When we finally entered the private room, I was a little nervous because we were so close to each other, even though I knew it.
I decided to read a manga while leaning on the cushions, but honestly, I couldn’t concentrate on the manga at all because of the closed room feeling and the sweet scent of Shi-chan.
Still, I looked next to Shi-chan and saw that she was already immersed in the world of manga and was happily reading the manga.
The manga that Shi-chan was reading was a sweet romantic comedy, where the hero and heroine, who had a lot going on at first, gradually started to flirt with each other.
The hero and heroine, who had been through a lot at first, started to flirt with each other.
Shi-chan seemed to have been interested in it for a long time, and I was a little disappointed to think that the reason she came here today was because she wanted to read it.
Well but I was glad that Shi-chan experienced something new like this and was enjoying herself next to me.
We then proceeded to read the manga, leaning against each other.
The more I read, the more cathartic the story became, and I found myself absorbed in it.
“Fuaa, I’m starting to feel a little sleepy.”
After reading the manga for a while, Shi-chan stretched and sneezed.
I had never seen Shi-chan sneeze before, so I stopped reading the manga.
“Are you enjoying the manga?”
“Yes, it’s very interesting, the heroine is so cute.”
Shi-chan smiled and told me what she thought.
The heroine of the manga is certainly cute, even from my point of view.
But to be honest, I think the real Shi-chan is much cuter than that creative heroine.
“…… Hey Takkun, when I read this, I feel like I want to make out with you more.”
“……That’s why, okay? Can you spoil me a little?”
–Eh? Isn’t that …… too …… bad?
When Shi-chan said that with her cheeks flushed red and her face close to mine, my heart thumped loudly in my chest.
A demon and a golden rod, Shi-chan and romantic comedy.
Shi-chan was so cute and sexy that all men must be captivated in front of her now that she has injected her heroine power in romantic comedy.
“…… Yes, fine, but what are you going to do?”
“…… Yeah, I’ve been walking a lot today, so I wanted to lie down for a while.”
Then, to my surprise, Shi-chan put her head on my thigh.
There was Shi-chan’s head on my leg.
My heart was pounding to the max at this sudden situation.
Moreover, Shi-chan was facing toward my belly button, and her too-perfect face was right there when I looked down at her.
When I gently pinched her cheek, she smiled and said, “Takkun, you’re so cute,” while closing her eyes.
It’s already too much, but the hardest part is the position of Shi-chan’s head, but I don’t think I need to put that into words for anyone to understand.
Thus, I somehow ended up in the terrible situation of having Shi-chan as my lap pillow in the seclusion of a internet cafe.
