After finishing the song, Saegusa-san returned to her seat, passing the pad to Takayuki who put on the next song.
However, when she returned to her seat, for some reason she sat next to me instead of her original position.
“Hey, Ichijo-kun, how was it?”
Saegusa asked shyly.
How was it, you mean the song you just sang?
“Well, uuhh. It was really good, and it was funny.”
When I answered with a laugh, Saegusa-san smiled happily, her face turned red.
Saegusa-san smiled shyly in front of me, and honestly, she was so cute.
“I actually downloaded the song you sang earlier and listened to it on my way to school. So I was really happy to hear it live.”
When I honestly told her how I felt, she looked even more embarrassed and literally gasped, “Awawawawa”.
“If it had been a maid’s uniform, it would have been great.”
I was amused by this, so I added a few more playful words.
Then Saegusa-san, who seemed to be in a panic, suddenly made a determined pose and said
“Next time, I’ll be ready!”
She declared in a high-pitched voice with a snort.
I thought she was just joking and didn’t need to be so enthusiastic, but if she could really show me, that would be a blessing in disguise, so I decided to leave the matter alone.
–I’m not sure I’d be able to keep my composure if someone showed me that image in front of me.
After Takayuki sang a rock and roll number, he asked me to sing next, so I had no choice but to play my favorite song.
This song was a bit minor and old, but I’ve always liked it and listened to it a lot, so I thought it would be better if I sang it in front of people.
Because Saegusa-san, who had been a super idol until the other day, was listening right in front of me, I sang as best I could.
I sang so passionately that I thought I had never sung so passionately in my life.
And guess what?
Takayuki and Shimizu-san seemed to be listening to my song.
I was quite relieved that they were listening to me and that my singing voice was okay.
The problem, however, was the other person.
Saegusa-san had moved to the seat closest to me, and was staring at me with sparkling eyes as I sang.
It’s really hard to sing if you look at me like that?!
Ms. Saegusa is staring at me without caring about my feelings.
Is this some kind of new kind of harassment?
The thought of being seen singing with a girl giving me such an expression made me quite nervous.
After I managed to finish the song, Saegusa-san clapped her hands at me as if it was the end of a live performance by her favorite singer.
No, no, no, it’s the other way around, I thought.
“Ah, I’ve been thinking about you guys for a while now……..”
“Uh, nothing. Nothing, nothing. Okay, now Shimizu-san it’s your turn to sing!”
Takayuki, who was watching the exchange between Saegusa-san and me, who was still acting suspiciously in a way, was about to say something, but he immediately brushed it off as nothing.
Although we’ve known each other for a long time, it was rare for Takayuki to stop saying something once he was about to say it, so I was a little curious as to what he was about to say.
As for Saegusa, she seemed to be searching hard for something on her phone, muttering, “There it is!”
I glimpsed the title of the song I had just sung on the screen of her phone.
It seemed that she was downloading the song I had just sung.
Saegusa-san had a very satisfied smile on her face, and if she liked the song I had sung earlier that much, that made me, the singer, happy.
After I finished singing, it was Shimizu-san’s turn to sing.
With Takayuki’s help, I was relieved to see that Shimizu-san, despite her nervousness, was able to select the right song and even send it to the tv.
Then, what was displayed on the screen was a song by the Angel Girls.
“Oh, um, Shion. Can you sing with me, if you don’t mind?”
Shimizu-san’s shy gesture was honestly just adorable.
Even Saegusa-san, who has the same gender as her, seemed to feel the same way, and after agreeing to Shimizu-san’s request, she stood on the platform with her and held the microphone happily.
–The two of them started to sing together.
Takayuki and I are now witnessing a miraculous scene.
One of them was Saegusa-san, aka Shiorin, who was the center of the national idol group Angel Girls.
She is smiling brightly and daintily, and even in this small karaoke box, she is in full idol moves, singing the songs of the Angel Girls in a cute and perfect way.
The other person is Shimizu-san, another classmate of mine.
She is always reading and has a shy personality, but when she sings, she has a lovely voice to begin with, and although her movements are a little stiff, she sings hard and has a different charm from her neighbor Saegusa-san.
Shimizu-san has a reputation for being one of the cutest girls in her grade, not only in her voice but also in her appearance.
So the sight of two of the prettiest girls in the grade idolizing each other right in front of us had a tremendous destructive power, although I felt bad for the class.
“…… Hey, Takuya.”
“…… What is it, Takayuki?”
“…… I think we might be stepping into heaven right now.”
“…… Oh, so this is heaven.”
I see. That’s why it’s so precious.
In this way, Takayuki and I were purified in good spirits in front of the two idols of the class, who sang in a cute and joyful way.
