“All right, let’s decide the group for the next field trip!”
Suzuki-sensei, the homeroom teacher, stood on the podium and said this, and the excitement in the classroom rose to new heights.
In this high school, every year the freshmen go on a field trip, and as usual, we freshmen had to go on a field trip.
It was just a normal field trip where we walked along a hiking course in a nearby mountain and ate our lunch at a square.
However, despite the fact that it was just a field trip, the class was in a state of excitement.
The reason for this was, of course, the presence of the super idol Shiorin, Saegusa-san, in the class.
Everyone is fighting to be in the same group as Shiorin-san.
It seems that this excitement is not limited to Saegusa-san, though, as there are other beautiful women in the class.
“Now, make a pair for each gender, and then stick together to make a group of four.”
As soon as Suzuki-sensei announced this, the classroom was in an uproar over who to pair up with.
“Takuya, let’s pair up!”
“Ou, Please take care of me.”
However, it didn’t matter to me who the class was buzzing about. As usual, I was quickly paired with Takayuki, and the “who to pair up with” problem in the classroom was quickly resolved.
In times like this, it’s really helpful to have a friend who you can pair up with right away.
Aside from me, Takayuki is a really warm guy who chooses me first even though he’s good friends with everyone else in the class, and that’s what makes him so manly and handsome.
If I was a woman, I’d be in love with him!!
“Saegusa-san, would you like to pair up with me?”
The girls in the class gathered around Saegusa-san, who was sitting in her seat, looking completely indifferent to the pairing.
The girls wanted to pair up with Saegusa-san, and since there was only one seat available, they were desperate to appeal themselves to be chosen.
The Angel Girls are not only popular with boys, but also with girls, and with the chance to go on a field trip with the idol of their dreams right in front of them, it was not hard to understand why they were so desperate.
Yeah, well, it’s okay to be desperate.
But I can’t stand the thought of having a girl’s butt next to my head again, so please do something about it. ……
“Thank you all for inviting me! But I’m sorry, I already have a team.”
Saegusa-san apologetically said no to the gathered girls.
At the sound of her voice, I wondered, “What? Who are you paired with, Saegusa?” The attention of the boys in the class was also drawn.
“Shimizu-san, is it okay?”
Saegusa-san smiled and said to Shimizu-san, who was also sitting in her own seat and not part of the pairing.
Shimizu replied in a whisper, “Yes, please take care of me,” although she was flustered.
To be honest, I don’t remember Saegusa and Shimizu talking, but since they were in the front and back of the class in order of attendance, they must have been involved in some unseen way.
After the girls gave up and moved away from Saegusa’s seat, Shimizu-san, who looked uncomfortable, trotted over to Saegusa’s seat.
Shimizu-san is a pretty, white, petite girl with lustrous black hair in a so-called princess cut.
Aside from Saegusa, she was one of the most beautiful girls in the school, and she was very popular among the otaku crowd.
As the two top beauties in the class, Saegusa and Shimizu, were paired up, the eyes of the boys in the classroom changed blatantly.
“I don’t mind grouping, but I don’t know who to choose for our group.”
Takayuki, who had been paired up but was having trouble deciding which pair to group up with, spoke to me.
I felt the same way and was wondering what I should do now.
“Yeah, I know, we’re all at a loss as to what to do.”
I looked around and saw that there were still only one or two places where teams had been decided.
It was like both men and women were looking at each other to see who would be a good pair to stick with.
—glancing at each other
“…… Oh, yeah, that’s right.”
“…… Oh, yeah. ……”
…… I exchanged a glance with Takayuki.
(……What do we do?)
(…… Takuya, please take care of this.)
Takayuki and I exchanged a silent conversation with only our eyes, and I sighed deeply once.
Then I turned to my neighbor, who had been glancing at me for a while now, and I called her out with determination.
“…… Um, Saegusa-san? Would you like to form a group with us?”
When I said that, she smiled as if a flower had bloomed. Saegusa-san had a big smile on her face.
“Is that okay!? Please, take care of me!”
She accepted my invitation really fast.
Following Saegusa’s example, she said, “P-please take care of me too!” Shimizu-san, whose face was bright red, bowed to me.
“Ou, nice to meet you too! Okay, I guess we’re going to be a group of four then!”
Takayuki smiled and said this in a loud voice, and the fact that Saegusa-san and Shimizu-san’s group had been decided in this way was known throughout the classroom, and the remaining boys in the class looked blatantly disappointed.
–Sorry guys, the pressure was too much ……way too much. Shimizu-san, whose face was bright red, bowed to me.
This is how I ended up in the same group as Saegusa.
