Chapter 62: Love interest?
I was now in a fierce state of confusion.
For some reason, the handsome young actor Ken Shirasaki was sitting next to Shi-chan, who I was supposed to be playing with, and Shi-chan was happily chatting with Shirasaki instead of me.
Since I was the one who came with her, I should have just called out to her and interrupted her as usual.
That should have been the right thing to do, but for some reason, I couldn’t move my legs any further in the face of such a scene.
As I looked at the two beautiful people chatting happily, I couldn’t help but feel that I was the odd man out.
What is this ……?
I was having so much fun just now, but what is this feeling ……?
–My heart is in pain.
–It’s hard, I want to go home.
The next thing I knew, it was getting hard to even be here, to be honest.
However, Shi-chan notices me standing there and calls out to me.
She raises one hand and calls out to me, looking as happy as ever.
But I couldn’t look straight at Shi-chan, and for some reason I turned away.
Then, Shirasaki, who was sitting next to me, also reacted to Shi-chan and turned around to look at me.
After all, Shirasaki was so handsome that I could tell even with his sunglasses on when I looked at him from the front.
But I didn’t miss the fact that Shirasaki looked at me and smiled a little snidely.
It was as if he was proud of his victory, and I instantly felt a surge of excitement inside me.
“Takkun? Ah! This is…”
Shi-chan, who must have noticed my strange situation, finally realized how awkward the situation was and turned a little pale as she hurriedly tried to introduce me to Shirasaki, who was sitting next to her.
However, Shirasaki gently stopped Shi-chan with one hand and smiled at her as if to say, “Leave it to me.”
Then Shirasaki looked straight at me and opened his mouth as if he had plenty of time to spare.
“I see, so you are the Takkun, right?”
“W-what if it is?”
He seemed to know me.
But I didn’t like the fact that he said “Takkun”, so I replied to him as if I were throwing up, even though we had never met before.
However, Shirasaki seemed to have plenty of time to spare for me as he shrugged his shoulders and continued to speak with the same smile on his face.
“Huh? Is it possible that you don’t like me? Anyway, nice to meet you, my name is Ken Shirasaki. I’m an actor, and I’ve known Shion since she was an idols.”
When he said that, Shirasaki smiled at Shi-chan, “Right? Shirasaki smiled at Shi-chan.
Perhaps it was because of Shirasaki’s handsome smile, but that Shi-chan was flustered and confused in front of him.
I was kind of frustrated by that.
When I was shown such a scene, I felt as if Shi-chan had been taken from me.
…… But at the same time, I started to think that he who was on the same level as Shi-chan was more natural than I was.
As soon as I was trying to compete, I felt tiny and embarrassed …
It’s easy to run away from this place, but if I run away, it’s the end.
Even if it’s the same end anyway, I’ve already decided not to run away—-
That’s what I thought, and I mustered up the courage to open my slightly trembling mouth.
“Well, I see. My name is Takuya Ichijo. And why are you here, Shirasaki-kun?”
It’s no good. …… I could say what I wanted to say, but my voice still made me shake.
I’m not cool. …… Damn …….
However, Shirasaki looked at me with amusement.
Then Shirasaki nodded once happily, and for some reason muttered, “That’s nice.”
What was so nice about that? When I was puzzled in front of such an unintelligible Shirasaki, ……
“Damn it! Ken-kun, that’s enough!”
As if she had reached the end of her patience, Shi-chan stood up and said to Shirasaki, her cheeks puffed out as if she had no choice but to do so.
From the expression on her face and the look on her cheeks, I immediately guessed that Shi-chan was pretty angry right now.
But what? Why is Shi-chan so angry with Shirasaki here? I was puzzled and confused, when suddenly I felt a tap on my shoulder from behind.
Surprised by the suddenness, I looked back.
Then, there was an unexpected person there.
“And? What are you guys doing while I was in the bathroom?”
Can someone explain it to me? There was YUI smiling at me.
