I’m here in an amusement park, and I’m in an extraordinary place.
But that’s not because this is an amusement park full of dreams, it’s because of the location.
So what is it? It’s nothing but the situation I’m in right now.
I’m sitting at a table in the corner of the amusement park’s food court, out of sight as much as possible.
Sitting across from me is Shi-chan, who has come to this place with me to play.
She is a beautiful girl who until recently was a top idol, the center of the well-known national idol group “Angel Girls”.
Sitting next to her is Ken Shirasaki, a handsome young actor who is at the height of his popularity among young people.
For some reason, Shi-chan, who was also here, is also a very famous person.
Lastly, sitting next to me is YUI, the vocalist of the popular girl band DDG.
I’ve talked to her before at a diner, and we’ve had a little bit of a history at Lime, so I know her to a certain extent, but YUI is so popular that she’s ranked number one on the music charts, and we normal people wouldn’t even associate with her.
It’s not just YUI-chan, but the other two people sitting at this table are all extremely famous, and for some reason I’m sitting there with them.
I’ve been in a similar situation before at a family restaurant, but that time it was okay because Takayuki and the others were there and we felt like we were at home, but now the situation was clearly away from home.
“So? Why is Ken with Shion?”
In such an incomprehensible situation, the first thing YUI-chan asked as she crossed her arms.
Somehow, this kind of structure, in which YUI asks questions to the two people who were together, made me feel as if YUI was on my side, and I was feeling much more relaxed than before.
“What do you mean, we just happened to meet? Hey, Shion?”
“Huh? Yeah, well.”
However, even with YUI, Shirasaki is still as calm as ever.
When Shirasaki spoke to Shi-chan, she seemed to be thinking about something else and not in the right frame of mind.
“Hmm. So? You just happened to meet her and talked to her.”
“Yeah, it’s normal to talk to someone you know, isn’t it?”
“Well, that’s true. Well then, Ken, I’ve known Takkun here for a while. So, do you mind if we go around together?”
Oh, YUI-chan? I’m getting involved?!
Both of them are calm on the surface, but suddenly YUI and Shirasaki start arguing.
They were probably coming together, but this one incident seems to have triggered it.
And for some reason, I …… got caught up in the argument between these two celebrities.
However, Shirasaki and Shi-chan each responded to YUI’s last statement.
“No, I don’t think that’s necessary since YUI and I have just come all the way here together on our day off.”
As soon as YUI said she was going to go around with me, her words lost all of the room they had just left.
“That’s right! You’re here with me, Takkun!”
And as soon as YUI-chan said she was going to take me with her, Shi-chan, who seemed to have regained her mind that had gone somewhere earlier, also hurriedly offered YUI-chan to wait a moment.
“Well, objectively speaking, that’s what you two were doing to us?”
YUI-chan grinned and replied to the two panicking people.
At those words from YUI, Shirasaki smiled in annoyance and scratched his cheek with his finger.
And then Shi-chan looked at me with a pale face.
“Ta-ta-ta-ta-kun! Um, that’s!!!”
She hurriedly tried to say something, but her words were not well formed.
“I’m sorry, it was all my prankishness that caused this. I’m sorry, Ichijo-kun, I’m sorry.”
Shirasaki, who could not bear to see Shi-chan like this, apologized to me as if he was telling me the truth.
The word ” prankish ” stuck in my mind, but I guess that the suggestive attitude earlier was just testing me, and Shirasaki came here with YUI-chan today, so it’s not like he has a thing for Shi-chan or anything.
“Well, I knew it would happen, and Shion, I was just kidding. Don’t worry, I will never really take Takkun away from you.”
Then, YUI sighed with a yelp.
At YUI’s words, Shi-chan, who had already forgotten to disguise herself with sunglasses, asked with some tears in her eyes, “Really ……?” she asked back.
“It’s true. But Shion? I know you’re not aware of it, but you should be careful too. You need to be able to discern for yourself what you need to take care of.”
YUI gently admonished Shi-chan with a smile, as if she had no choice.
But I’m not sure what YUI’s last words have to do with this situation.
If you think about it conveniently, it’s …….
“I’m sorry, Takkun. I’m sorry for leaving you alone when you’re here with me. ……”
“No, no, you have nothing to apologize for, Shi-chan!”
Shi-chan apologized to me after hearing YUI’s words.
So I hurriedly denied that it was something that Shi-chan would apologize for.
This was just a story of me, an unconfident person, being selfishly misunderstood and selfishly hurt in front of a handsome man named Shirasaki, so it’s not something that Shi-chan, who was just talking to him, should apologize for.
“Yes, it’s nothing for you to apologize for, Shion. I think it’s Ichijo’s fault for lacking self-confidence.”
But even in a situation like this, Shirasaki just plainly points out the truth.
I could only glare at Shirasaki, who, despite being a third party, had put himself on the shelf and was laughing at me.
“But Ichijo-kun, you were really brave in the end. Keep it up.”
And just when I thought Shirasaki had just said something annoying, he now praised me, as if he could see through my emotions.
I didn’t like the fact that he could see through me like that, and I knew I didn’t like this guy.
However, as if he could see through my emotion again, Shirasaki shrugged his shoulders and laughed again.
“What the hell? Why is YUI here when I came to the food court! And what? Could it be the Ken Shirasaki?”
There, Takayuki and Shimizu-san finally came to us, looking at our chaotic situation and looking puzzled.
“Hi, nice to meet you, I’m Ken Shirasaki. I’m currently going out with YUI-san here.”
Shirasaki introduced himself to the surprised Takayuki and Shimizu-san in the same nonchalant manner.
And then Shirasaki said something outrageous as well.
He told them that he and YUI were dating.
Takayuki, who is a fan of YUI, naturally couldn’t hide his surprise at this.
As for me, I guess from a while ago, Shirasaki was dating YUI-chan …
“I’m not a dating him. I’m only coming with him today because Ken insisted.”
YUI-chan replied with words that I never expected.
What? You’re not in a relationship?
As if she was a little annoyed, YUI crisply denied it.
“It’s no exaggeration to say that we’re dating, coming to an amusement park together. Right, Shion?”
Not at all discouraged by YUI’s denial, Shirasaki turned the conversation to Shi-chan.
Shi-chan, who was suddenly asked to talk, was in a panic, as if she didn’t know what to say.
“Well… What about you two?”
“Yeah, he’s weird guy, but he and I have known each other since childhood.”
YUI-chan told me a shocking fact that I never expected.
There’s no need for her to lie to us, and isn’t the world too small for the vocalist of a very popular band and a young popular actor to actually be childhood friends?
I mean, what kind of romantic comedy is it when two beautiful and famous people are childhood friends? It’s like a romantic comedy.
“Well, that’s why I’ve always been a YUI fan, so don’t worry.”
This time, Shirasaki smiled at me. I knew I wasn’t good at this.
After a short conversation, YUI said, “Well, we’d better get going,” and left with Shirasaki.
Apparently, YUI and her friends are going to go back to her parents’ house in the evening for a dinner party with them.
It’s great to be childhood friends. ……
As I watched them leave, Shi-chan, who was sitting across from me, quickly moved to the seat next to me, where YUI had been sitting earlier.
I noticed her and looked next to her. “I’m the one sitting next to you,……,” she muttered quietly with a slight blush on her cheeks.
