The hair salon that Ken-chan brought me to had a stylish exterior that, like Ken-chan’s store, made it hard to tell that it was a hair salon at first glance.
Again, I was a little intimidated by the overwhelming stylishness that I had never experienced before in my life.
But Ken-chan followed up with a light laugh and said, “It’s like that for everyone at first.”
When I entered the salon, a handsome man, as stylish as Ken-chan, was sitting on a chair waiting for me to arrive.
“Ken, is that the boy you were talking about?”
“Yes, make sure he’ s dressed up.”
”What, is he one of those types of people……,” I thought, as the handsome man observed me closely.
“I see, he certainly looks like he’ll shine if he polishes up.”
“Right? Please make him look cool.”
Ken-chan and his handsome friend grinned at each other as they said this.
Why …… am I a little scared ……?
“I didn’t introduce myself yet, my name is Hiroshi, so you can call me Hiro-chan.”
And then Hiro-chan turned his handsome smile on me.
Like Ken-chan, it was hard to get used to the tone of voice of these two guys who are usually good-looking when they’re not talking.
But there are people with all kinds of values in this world, and since I am going to be taking care of now, I should get used to it quickly.
“Well then, he’ll take care of the rest! Good luck, Takkun!”
Ken-chan winked at me and went back to the store.
After that, Hiro-chan explained everything to me while he cut my hair, and to be honest, his scissors skils were amazing.
To tell the truth, Hiro-chan’s scissors work was amazing.
Hiro-chan is also a famous person in the area, and he’s actually a great guy who works exclusively with celebrities.
He’ s also in charge of cutting the members of the Angel Girls, and while he was cutting my hair, we talked about Shi-chan.
Hiro-chan said that Shi-chan was the most beautiful idol in the world when she was working, but when she was off the job, she was a little off, and that made her cute.
Needless to say, we hit it off at once, and I understood that feeling very well.
After the haircut was finished and my hair was set with hair wax, I saw myself in the mirror and my impression had changed to the level of a different person.
In other words, I was a good-looking guy. I saw myself reflected in the mirror.
I don’t really like this kind of expression, but it still made me feel good about myself.
“And? Perfect, right?”
“Y-yes. To be honest, I didn’t expect it to change so much. …… I’m very surprised. ……”
“As a hairdresser, it’s a great pleasure to hear you say that.”
When I honestly told him how I felt, he smiled happily.
It was a day that made me realize that fashion coordinators and hair stylists who have mastered their craft are truly amazing.
Then I went back to Ken-chan’s store to show him my changed self. He said “Ara! You’ve cleared up a lot! If I had been ten years younger, I might have fallen in love with you!” He joked with me and praised me for my change.
So I took the train back to my hometown with a happy feeling.
On the train, I looked at my phone for the first time in a while, and saw our group Lime buzzing with memories of yesterday.
I decided to join Lime, thinking that it would be a lie not to have something to talk about since Akarin and YUI showed up after playing at the pool …….
“Sorry, I was out for a bit and didn’t notice! Thanks for yesterday!”
Okay, I’ll send it.
Anyway, I wondered if people would be surprised to see me in the clothes I bought at Ken-chan’s and the cut I got at Hiro-chan’s. I felt a bit of mischief and a desire for approval.
I was thinking that I wasn’t supposed to be like this, and as I was operating my phone to listen to music, I heard Lime’s reply: “Hey!”
“‘Good evening! Where have you been?”
I wondered why she replied so quickly, but it was from Shi-chan.
And for some reason, it wasn’t from the group Lime, but from an individual.
“Oh, I went shopping for a bit!”
I was about tell her about Ken-chan’s place but I had a second thought.
Since I had changed so much, I thought I would keep it a secret and surprise her.
“I see. you didn’t read my messages, so I was wondering what you were doing.”
O-Oh, I’m sorry about that.
But it was just a normal, casual conversation, and it didn’t matter if I wasn’t around. …… It’s like you’re wondering what I’ve been doing all day…….
“Sorry, I was out of town and didn’t notice.”
“Did you go on a shopping trip?”
Ah, crapt. I thought I had said something completely unnecessary, but it was too late.
“Yeah, just a little!”
“I see, Takkun, you’re going home now, right?”
“Hmm? Of course.”
“You’re taking the train, right? What time will it be?”
“Yes. Uh, a little after 6:00 p.m., I think.”
Anyway, I was a little overwhelmed by Shi-chan’s quick reply.
Now that Lime has stopped, and I still have about 50 minutes until I get to the station, I decide to listen to some music while I ride the train.
I finally arrived at the local station and got off the train.
For some reason, I saw Shi-chan in front of the ticket gate.
She was kind of scurrying around as if she was looking for someone.
Since she was outside, she was naturally wearing sunglasses as a disguise, but her hair was a little bouncy today, and she looked a little different.
I wondered if she was in a hurry to get out.
At any rate, since it would be bad to just pass by and I was worried about Lime, I decided to talk to her.
“Shi-chan, what’s wrong?”
When I called out to her as usual, she turned to look at me and for some reason froze.
“Hmm? What’s wrong?”
“Y-you’re Takkun ……, right?”
Oh, I see.
Thanks to Hiro-chan, I now had a positive style.
“Oh, yeah. What do you think? Isn’t it weird?”
“It’s cool. ！！！！”
What do you think,? When I asked her how she liked it, Shi-chan raved about it with gusto.
I was so happy to see Shi-chan raving in front of me, sniffling, and I could tell that she was not lying.
“What’s wrong, Takkun? What are you doing?”
“Oh, I really wanted to keep it a secret, but I guess I’m done. Today, I went to Ken-chan’s to buy some clothes. Then he introduced me to a hairdresser named Hiro, and I got my hair cut as well.”
“Hiro-chan? I see. So it was Hiro-chan. Good.”
“What do you mean?”
“It’s nothing! I see, so that’s what happened.”
I wondered what was good about it, but for now, Shi-chan seemed to be in a good mood and smiling, so I called it good.
It was a shame to go home straight after meeting Shi-chan like this, so I decided to be brave and ask her out.
“You know what? If you have time, why don’t we go out to eat together?”
When I took the plunge and invited her out to dinner, Shi-chan looked very surprised and made a strange noise.
“Oh, no, it was sudden. If you can’t make it, we can do it another time.”
“I’m coming! Please let me go! Oh, but I came out in a hurry, so my hair is …… woo~……”
She raised her hand and said she was going, but then she seemed to be worried about her bouncy hair, so she held her hair and sagged down in disappointment.
I couldn’t help but smile at her because she was so cute and emotional.
–Really, you’re always so cute, Shi-chan!
This is how I won my dinner date with Shi-chan on short notice.
