Chapter 54: Family Restaurant and Celebrities
As Shi-chan said, Akarin and YUI really appeared in the family restaurant.
The three of us, except for Shi-chan, panicked at the sight of two current, extremely famous people in front of us at the same time.
“Sorry for interrupting.”
But YUI-chan didn’t seem to care about us and sat down next to Takayuki as if she was a normal friend.
The box seat itself was originally a couch seat for six people, and since Takayuki and I were sitting on the aisle facing each other, YUI-chan sat next to Takayuki.
In other words, Takayuki was now sitting between his girlfriend, the beautiful Shimizu-san, and DDG’s vocalist YUI-chan, whom he had always been a big fan of.
Takayuki looked happy, nervous, and concerned about Shimizu-san’s behavior, an exquisite expression that I have never seen on his face in all the years we have known each other.
Shimizu-san, who probably knew that Takayuki was a fan of DDG, looked surprised but also wary, as she never thought that the real YUI-chan would appear next to her boyfriend.
But when YUI noticed Shimizu-san staring at her, she said, “Mooh! You’re as cute as Shion when I look closely!” She was looking back at Shimizu-san in an amused manner.
Shimizu-san, who was told such a thing by YUI-chan, was red-faced and confused, and Takayuki, who was caught in the middle of such an exchange between a beautiful woman and a beautiful girl, was laughing along with her with an exquisite expression on his face.
–What the hell is this, it’s too chaotic.
And the chaos is the same here.
“Excuse me, neighbor.”
Then, Akarin sat down next to me.
If YUI sat across from me, then of course Akarin sat on my side, and I was now in the chaotic situation of being sandwiched between the center and leader of the Angel Girls.
I laughed anyway, thinking that like Takayuki, I must have an exquisite expression on my face that I’ve never had before.
“How does it feel to be sandwiched between Shiorin and me?”
Akarin noticed my confusion and immediately started teasing me, poking me with her elbow with a frown on her face.
How do I feel? I was at a loss for words when she asked me how I felt, so I just laughed and tried to cover it up.
“Akarin, don’t make fun of Takkun, and YUI too, okay”
However, Shi-chan, who had been watching Akarin and YUI, smiled and quietly said something to them, and the two who had been teasing us pulled away, smiling bitterly.
We were frankly surprised by Shi-chan’s pressure.
She can make even an active celebrity back off with a single word.
“…… Hmmm, I see, so you’re Takkun.”
But it wasn’t long before Akarin and YUI were looking at me with amusement.
It was as if they had known me for a long time.
So of course they must have heard something about me from Shi-chan, so I asked them what they meant. I looked at Shi-chan for help.
Then Shi-chan had a blatantly troubled expression on her face.
When Shi-chan noticed my gaze, she panicked, waved her hand and said, “I don’t know?”
But I have not said anything yet, unfortunately.……
Then, Shi-chan turned to the two of them, this time with a blatantly accusatory look in her eyes.
What’s happening …? Akarin and YUI hurriedly nodded their heads in response to the pressure of her gaze, which was incomparable to what we had seen earlier.
But watching the three of them interact, I felt relieved because I could tell that they were really close to each other, perhaps because they knew each other so well.
Until recently, Shi-chan had been an idol on the front lines, so she had always been a special person in the class and had always been distant from everyone, but seeing her interacting with the two celebrities as normal friends made me feel relieved and happy.
With both of them apologizing to me. “Mooh!” she said while turning her head away and puffed up, but her face still looked happy.
“Eh? Did you see the movie, Takkun? How was it?”
After that, we enjoyed talking with Akarin and YUI for a while.
When I told her that I went to see Akarin’s movie the other day, she was happy with a big smile on her face.
It wasn’t a gesture of teasing me like before, but a genuine feeling of happiness that I had seen her work as an actress.
Then she asked me how it was. I answered honestly, thinking that I never thought I would have the opportunity to directly express my impressions to the lead actress herself.
“It was really interesting. To be honest, I almost cried.”
“I see, so you didn’t cry, did you?”
Akari smirked at my comment and hit me where it hurts.
“I’m joking. Thank you. The original work is really great, and I did my best to share it with everyone as much as I could. So it’s very nice to hear that kind of feedback.”
Akarin’s smile was just as beautiful as the one I had seen in the movie.
Akarin smiled really happily as she said this, and it was just as beautiful as the smile I had seen in the movie.
As I was admiring her smile, Shi-chan, sitting next to me, poked me with her elbow.
I turned around and saw Shi-chan puffing out her cheeks with a look of frustration on her face.
“Oh, Shiorin? Could it be that—“
“A K A R I N ?”
When Akarin tried to make fun of Shi-chan’s swelling, Shi-chan suppressed her words with the greatest pressure she could muster.
Akarin was on the verge of saying something when Shi-chan said, “I’m sorry!?”. She turned a little pale and apologized.
YUI, who was clapping her hands and laughing at their interaction, was also silenced by Shi-chan’s pressure.
