“Well, I guess we better get going.”
Huffing and puffing, Akarin drank the rest of her drink and stood up.
YUI stood up with Akarin and said, “Yes, that’s right.”
To be honest, we were a little disappointed that the time we had spent chatting with such famous people had come to an end.
Takayuki was a big fan of YUI, so it was easy to understand his disappointment.
He was so disappointed that he didn’t even notice that Shimizu-san next to him was looking a little unhappy.
But when YUI noticed Takayuki, she smiled amusedly and said
“I’ll give you two tickets to the next concert via Shion, so come visit us!”
She patted Takayuki on the shoulder and laughed.
Takayuki, who was clearly cheered up by her words, said, “Really!? I’m definitely coming! Hey Sakurako! He excitedly turned to Mr. Shimizu.
“So, we’re going to Shiorin house.”
When I looked next to her, Shi-chan stood up with me, looking like she had no choice.
“I’m sorry, but these two are staying at my house now.”
No one would have thought that Akarin and Shiorin from Angel Girls and YUI from DDG would be having a sleepover together in this local town.
I mean, what’s with that sleepover party?! I’m too curious! That was my honest impression.
I also wondered if the parents would be okay with two people staying at Shi-chan’s house at once.
“What? Didn’t you hear? Shiori lives alone now?”
Akarin said the shocking fact without hesitation.
It was our own fault for not asking her about her home life because she was a former idol, but we were all surprised to see Shi-chan living alone even though she was still a freshman in high school.
When we asked her about it, she told us that she knew her family was wealthy, but her parents were busy with work and rarely stayed home, so she managed to get permission to live alone in this town with her grandmother.
She had some money saved up from her idol days, so she was able to pay for her rent and school fees from there.
She rents a large room in a secure apartment building, and her parents often visit her on their days off from work, so it’s not much different from when she’s at home.
Well, I guessed that Shi-chan, who had been active as an Angel Girl, would have enough savings to cover her expenses, but I was still impressed by the otherworldly story.
After we saw the three of them off, we held an impressions session for the remaining members of the public.
“I was really surprised to see YUI and Akari out of nowhere.”
“That’s right! But I’m glad you got to talk to the girl of your dreams, Takayuki.”
“Oh! It’s true! I’m a fan……, but I don’t see her as a member of the opposite sex, and the only person I like is Sakurako.”
When Takayuki noticed Shimizu-san looking at him coldly, his face instantly turned pale and he began to make strange excuses.
Takayuki’s reluctance was so funny that both Shimizu-san and I couldn’t help but laugh.
“I’m sorry, Takayuki, I’m just kidding. I’m not mad.”
“I-I’m so glad…..”
Takayuki was deeply relieved when Shimizu-san apologized with a laugh.
After that, we enjoyed talking for an hour, and then parted ways for the day.
When I got home, I took a quick shower and then lay down on the bed in my room.
Whew, so much has happened today, I thought, and I couldn’t help but grin as I recalled the events of the day.
In all of these memories, there was Shi-chan, sometimes cute, sometimes suspicious and funny, and I was growing to like her more and more.
It’s been a while since we started hanging out together, but there are still many unknown aspects of Shi-chan, and I’m sure she will continue to surprise me like she did today for the time being.
Then, I heard the sound of Lime’s notification on my phone, which I had thrown under my pillow.
I immediately picked up my phone and saw that it was the Lime from Shi-chan that I was just thinking about.
And it wasn’t a message, but a picture.
I remembered that she was having a sleepover with Akarin and YUI today, so I opened the picture, hoping that it might be her.
When I saw the image on my phone screen, I couldn’t help but laugh.
There was a picture of Shi-chan in her pajamas, sleeping with a happy look on her face, and Akarin and YUI were laughing at her and posing for a selfie on both sides of her.
It seems that the two of them took the liberty of using Shi-chan’s sleeping phone to send the photo to me.
I thought it was a little too much of a prank. But I couldn’t help but smile at how cute Shi-chan was.
She must have fallen asleep because she was so tired from playing all day, but she was still so cute.
And to be honest, I was also happy to see a picture of Akarin and YUI in private.
But it would be bad if I didn’t say what I meant, so I returned the message.
“It’s very cute, but it’s not nice to handle people’s phones without permission! But thank you so much for the picture! I’ll keep it as a family heirloom!”
The heirloom Shi-chan series is growing by the day.
As I was thinking that I should make a dedicated folder for it, Lime’s reply came back to me right away.
“This is a service shot for Takkun! I’m Shiorin, but please continue to support me!”
I couldn’t help but smile at her reply.
Sure, they may both be active celebrities, but to Shi-chan, they seemed like important friends, and I was happy about that.
You’ve got good friends, Shi-chan.
While I was thinking about this, the exhaustion of the day’s activities overwhelmed me and I fell asleep.
And when I woke up the next morning…
“Good morning, Takkun! Did you see the picture that was sent to you last night!? It’s embarrassing, so make sure you delete it!”
I woke up the next morning to find a Lime from Shi-chan.
I rubbed my eyes in my sleep, but I couldn’t help but smile at how cute Shi-chan looked in panic. I opened the image that hadn’t been deleted and loved it, then saved it again.
