After that whole debacle, Yogiri changed his confession plans.
“A man needs to have guts. It’s a matter of hitting and running! Anyway, you need to make various approaches and get Otohime to recognize you,” Sakura made her proposal.
“There are many ways to approach someone, so let’s start with daily greetings, contact exchange, and close interactions on campus,” Shirayuki corrected Sakura’s proposal into a more sensible one.
“—When you send a message, it’s important for it to be open-ended. That means easy to reply to,” I gave my own, objective two cents.
And so, we finally planned a decent course of action.
“Love Master, Shirayuki-san, and Kuzuo. Thank you guys so much! Now I feel like I can actually do something!”
“If you have any updates on that, please feel free to contact me.”
“I wish you all the best.”
“Well, good luck with that.”
With a smile on his face, he left the student council office.
“Well, it’s about time. We’d better be on our way.”
While we walked back from Hakuou, we talked.
“Well, today was really interesting…” Sakura nodded to herself with a fluffy face.
“You’re really a love-brain, huh?”
“Yeah, of course! A friend’s love story is equivalent to three bowls of rice!” She puffed her chest with confidence. “If any of you two find someone you like, you can always talk to me bout it, ok?”
“No, thank you very much.”
“I’ll think about it.”
As our chatter continued, we finally arrived at the station.
“Well then, I’ll see you guys tomorrow!”
“Yeah, see ya tomorrow.”
After parting ways with Sakura, Shirayuki and I walked back home together.
“—Yogiri-kun, I hope things go well for you.”
“Well, he’s got some major personality issues… It’s tough, really.”
“Is that so? From what I’ve seen today, aside from his tacky looks, he seemed like a decent guy.”
“If you hang out with him long enough, you’ll understand. That idiot doesn’t think, he just lives in the moment, for the moment. At best, he’s ephemeral and impatient; at worst, he’ll just make all the wrong decisions. Also, he’s extremely showy, and— What’s wrong?”
Shirayuki stopped abruptly, blinking quickly due to the shock.
“No, I was just surprised to hear you talk so eloquently about someone other than Yui… You and Yogiri-kun are really close, aren’t you?”
“… Well, he’s not a bad guy.”
I’ve known that idiot since junior high. Needless to say, that’s a long time, so he’s in my narrow and frankly small circle of friends.
“Also, I’m surprised you’re so knowledgeable about love… To be honest, I’m still stunned.”
“Really?” I thought I was pretty average.
“Um, by the way… Have you ever been in a relationship before, Kuzuhara-kun?”
“No, no, I don’t mean anything by that… I just wonder if you have that kind of experience with girls, despite me knowing a fair bit about you.”
It was frankly unusual for Shirayuki to explain herself that much.
“… I, see…”
“Psyche! Unfortunately, these dead eyes of mine have always repelled people.”
“—Y-Yes, that’s right… Phew~”
She said that, smiling happily for some reason… Hey, didn’t anyone teach you that you shouldn’t make fun of people’s looks?
