CHUUKO DEMO KOI GA SHITAI! Index
Chapter 1- This type of development is common in Games
“Aw, Aramiya-kun. Starting an R-18 game right after coming here, huh?”
Damn it, I was just opening my notebook. Yuuka was sitting on the opposite side of the long table and puffing out her cute little cheeks.
The little, beautiful face of hers was adorned with two big eyes. It was to the extent that she looked a little too childish; however she was cute nonetheless.
But her body contrasted with her apparent youth. The places that shouldn’t be curved were curved, others that shouldn’t be big were big.
And her black hair slid down to her hips like a waterfall. Every strand of hair was long and shiny, with a little bow on the top of her head. When she put it on, it made her seem even more childish.
But, it all seemed to fit in perfectly. Even when she was angry, her actions were all cute in some way. Not to mention my evil friend who always secretly commented how her butt was “big”.
“I was just opening my notebook.”
“Last time I saw you like this, I thought you were in a meeting, but instead you were playing games. So this time, Yuuka won’t be tricked! Actually, bringing an 18+ game to school is already quite bad.”
This woman is crazy, is she my mom!?
But, judging from how she commented “quite bad”, she was probably starting to lose her hold on common sense.
It’s not just bad ‘to an extent’, it’s VERY bad! 18+ games aren’t even allowed for people under 18 to buy in the first place.
“Yeah yeah, I’m sorry.”
I closed my notebook for good, and gazed around the club room one last time.
The room was about 4 and a half tatami mats big. (EN: roughly 7.4 meters square or 80-ish square feet)
Behind Ayame was a 4-story stainless steel cabinet, in it was a box of documents which were mostly my Eroge.
Outside the window I could hear a girl shouting “Fight Mikage!!”, and some music coming from the music club.
“… Speaking of which, it’s pretty strange how our group was formed in the first place.”
Tozaki Keta who was sitting besides me was mumbling. Tozaki was a generic looking boy that you could find anywhere and he was also one of my otaku friends. You could guess his crazed personality just by looking at his face.
“Even if we are in the same class, both Ayame and Hatsushiba are people we have no chance of talking with normally.”
“It’s because Cotton is always alone, and Yuuka is only with the girl’s group.”
I voiced out my opinion on Ayame, followed by one on Hatsushiba. Cotton is one of Ayame’s alias.
“To me, it’s a lucky thing that we get to talk together.”
Ayame, who was sitting besides Hatsushiba, made a shy face.
“It’s all because you helped her.”
“Don’t say it like that, it’s because you helped me that I gave up on being a delinquent.”
“Even so, you became an Otaku, and I usually am the one being kidnapped by that gang of thugs.”
“C’mon, the problem being solved already is a good thing right?”
“I prefer playing Eroge all night.”
I sighed. Tozaki, who was making a confident face, smacked my shoulders.
“No matter how much you complain, time moves on equally, and time is the cruelest and gentlest thing in the universe.”
“Did you just copy a quote from a famous doctor?”
Nevertheless, ever since I helped Ayame, my life in school has changed drastically. Especially after school.
“Then let’s start shall we? Let the meeting about eradicating Cotton’s rumors begin!”
Hatsushiba’s words filled with passion forced me into submission, as expected of a seiyuu. Her voice was music to my ears. Now, recalling how this same voice had once confessed to me, even if it was fake, I was still a little happy.
Really, if I heard this voice through the loudspeaker everyday I wouldn’t have any complaints in my life.
“Hah, her voice feels so good…”
Tozaki had already reached the point of making a strange expression, looking completely enchanted by the melody of her voice.
“Eradicating the rumors? Sorry for making you guys help out again.”
Ayame was showing a guilty expression and tilted her head down a little.
“Well, the rumours are far from the truth. Even so, doing things like dying your hair brown, getting your ears pierced, and modifying your school uniform like that is just asking to be gossiped at. I even got worried since I saw your chain thingy, what is that?”
“It’s a weapon, duh! Tie it around your hand and your punch carries more impact. Swinging it around would also be effective. Although I have never tried using it though.”
Damn, this girl is dangerous. She could walk through the mob barehanded without flinching.
“Tozaki-kun, what are the rumors trending around Cotton?”
“A- uhh… The first one is about her being ‘used’ already”
“That’s an alias, not a rumor. And that’s the one that you made up when you were in primary school”
After I protested, he starts to scratch his head in confusion.
“Sorry… the other stuff, is it really appropriate to say?”
Ayame and Hatsushiba nodded.
“The most troubling rumors are those of her doing ‘business’ as a side job, the story of a friend of a friend paying a huge sum of money for ‘it’ or the recent rumor about her cosplaying for her ‘business’…”
“So it’s become a street legend.”
Hatsushiba announced while heaving a sigh. Ayame, hearing the complete details of her rumors made a scary face and glared at Tozaki, showing clearly that she was trying her best to hold back her fury.
“U-uh wait! I- I wasn’t the one who spread the rumor!?”
Tozaki quickly stammered salvaging what was left of his reputation; which was normal because being stared by Ayame like that was frightening.
“Ayame never did any prostitution activities. But this news spread like wildfire because when we were in middle school, Ayame distanced herself away from other people and never corrected anyone about it. That’s the root of our problem.”
I tried to explain the situation, and Ayame made a soft smile.
The face saying something like “As long as he understands, it’s fine”.
“The other reason is because she usually had problems with others. Mostly when helping others by interfering with bullies.”
“But you really did skip school.”
“Ugh… I won’t do it again, okay?”
Knowing her better now, I’m starting to understand Ayame as a person and realized that she was a serious person unlike what the rumors said. It made me a little pissed how far the rumors were from the truth..
That’s why I wanted to quickly eradicate them. For that particular reason, I allowed these people to use the clubroom of the “Digital games research” club that I founded.
“First things first, I think we need to stop the people in our classes from spreading this rumor; At least make them believe that the rumor isn’t true.”
“That’s okay for a start.”
Tozaki agreed with my idea.
“And how should we do it practically?”
Hatsushiba asked me, but I think that it would be easy enough to convince our classmates. I stared at Hatsushiba, implying that she was an important piece to the puzzle.
“Aramiya-kun, w-what is it?”
Her cheeks turned pink, and she quickly looked away.
What the hell was that reaction? Nah, whatever. I don’t care.
“Hatsushiba, if you stand in front of the class and talk about Ayame, our classmates should be plenty convinced.”
Hatsushiba was at the top of the hierarchy in the class. And a popular figure in the school. People like Tozaki and other boys in the class didn’t hate her. If Hatsushiba talked about Ayame, people would believe her. I didn’t think this plan had any faults.
“Many people should be persuaded, but not everybody will be.”
Hatsushiba shook her head in dismay.
“If you were the one to talk, the majority should believe you to quite an extent though?”
“No, imagine this, if Yuuka said that Cotton could fly, will Aramiya-kun believe me?”
How could humans fly with their own strength. As long as there is no supernatural powers in this world, there is no way humans could ever fly on their own.
“…Wait, are you trying to say-“
“Yes, rumors about Cotton have already reached that level, just me saying a little this and that won’t be enough. Probably it’ll only leave them half convinced. They might just say ‘Oh- really? I believe you.’
“That’s because this rumor has been fermenting for too long. There’s a saying about rumors, that they only stay for 75 days at most. But this has already dragged on for 1461 days.”
“Also, there are some people who hate Yuuka.”
“Does such a person exist? I thought everybody kinda likes you. Saying like, ‘wow, as cute as ever!’ isn’t that right?”
Every single person at school loves you! I may not be the number one listener, but I’ve never heard a single complaint about you.
“Girls have a different outward and inward personality. When they say I’m cute, they’re not complimenting Yuuka, their talking about himself! As if they’re trying to spread the message that ‘look, I just said she’s cute, look at how good a person I am!’ when they’re back home, I bet they’re gossiping about me. They won’t say that in front of guys, though, obviously.”
“A-aren’t you a little too cautious?”
No matter how I look at it, she seemed a little over-dramatic.
“Girls are never straight-forward!”
(Editor: So true…) (Lt. Gen: I know, I wish there was actually a girl who can be straightforward and bold…) (EN: Me too…)
But Hatsushiba still denies my word. And said it with a grim face, which scared me a little.
“But, all we can do is slowly reject those rumors, huh?”
Tozaki decided to join in with his opinion.
“…Tozaki, I thought I had already told you to go and find out at least ten ways to go about this.”
“W-wait! Aramiya, try thinking carefully! You can’t google this kind of stuff.”
“All you have is the internet, right?”
“Duh! If it was in a book or something I would’ve dealt with it a long time ago! Rumors are things that you must wait out. It’s like internet drama. The best way is to post a sorry message once, then keep your heads low for a while till people stop caring. The details may not be the same, but I believe it’s essentially the same thing.”
So he really didn’t just surf the net for no reason. Maybe his plan would actually work.
“I searched for some info as well, and I think the root of the problem lies in the rumor’s source.”
Tozaki looked confused.
“How do you think it spread out this far in the first place? It’s because the rumor stems not from the victim, but from someone else with enough influence to make it believable. Like what if I spread a rumor about Tozaki being a lolicon and was only aroused by 10 year old girls, what do you think would happen?”
“I AM NOT INTO GIRLS THAT YOUNG!!”
Tozaki was on the verge of crying, maybe I was being a little too mean… Should’ve set the maximum age to twelve~
“I didn’t say it is true, I’m just saying ‘what if’! Ok, so in this scenario, Tozaki’s rumor would spread around, and he himself needs to take care of it.”
“If the rumor continued to spread, but there being no evidence, it would eventually die out.”
The problem lies outside of the classroom, Tozaki wouldn’t be able to express his opinions and the rumors would continue to spread like wildfire.
“Not just any rumor told by a random guy could spread this fast, but what if the guy who said that about Tozaki was very popular in school? This would greatly amplify the rate of the rumors spread, and people would try to add to the story by themselves to spice things up further.”
“That isn’t so nice to listen to…”
“But if a person closely related to Tozaki argued saying that, ‘he was just kidding’, the rumor will eventually vanish, especially if it’s a friend asking his friend, ‘Is Tozaki a lolicon?’ or something like that.”
I quickly sat up and picked up a small whiteboard that was carefully placed in the room’s corner.
“So this rumor has two main problems, that Ayame’s rumors are being spread by someone popular and that Ayame ‘can’t communicate properly’.”
I wrote the two points down with a black pen.
Ayame made an awkward face, she must have been unable to defend herself.
“The rumors about causing trouble at school and jumping classes can’t be dealt with yet. If you just act naturally and be nice, they would slowly disappear, even if the problem itself doesn’t disappear quickly.”
“So the main problem is the ‘inability to communicate’, right?”
Hatsushiba nodded while hugging her chest. It’s not like I’m interested in 3D girls, but when a girl hugs her chest, it emphasizes their chest, hmm…
“When Ayame is in class, she never talks to anyone, even her current condition is already considered to be an improvement since she occasionally talks to me or Hatsushiba. But I think that Ayame should still try to befriend her classmates more.”
Ayame seems anxious, judging from her expression.
“But the moment I go in and say hi, they all panic and run away.”
“No need to worry, maybe.”
I tried being optimistic, but Ayame still seems anxious about this.
“Even you almost ran too, you only replied, ‘yes’, ‘I understand’, or whatever.”
“S-so what could I do?! At that time, the only thing I could think of was not getting punched!”
“Why would she do that!?”
“Cause based on the rumors about her, she seemed like the type that would punch you even when you avoided contact with her!”
Ayame flopped down on her table, with an accusing face.
Now she’s sad. How could a person’s mood change so rapidly?
“I won’t tell you to start smiling all the time or change personalities right away, but if you want things to improve, then try talking to other people, or when talking to the teacher, don’t just say ‘What? I didn’t do anything’. Oh, and greeting somebody else is very important too.”
“Yuuka thinks that you must change the way you act in normal daily life. Attitude is the basic.”
Hatsushiba was also into the idea.
“Yeah, I’ll try.”
“This is what you must do, while we try to dissipate the rumors.”
After we came to this conclusion, we dismissed for the day…
“Give back the club room, NOW!!”
A girl barged through the club room’s door, and announced.
To her sides were 2 girls who seemed to be her loyal followers standing in standby. One seems like the strict type while the other seems to be the aggressive fighting type.
Who the heck is she?
Tozaki wailed in despair.
What? Student president? This girl? When voting for the president I wasn’t paying attention, so I recall very little.
“Hello there, I understand that lowly beings like the boys of this School may not know me, so I will take this chance to introduce myself. I am the student president of Mikage High, Yaotani Iri, a Third year and this is my secretary and vice president.”
I stared at her in shock. Did such a person exist? I might have seen her on the student council campaign but I can’t remember a single thing. Student council elections in real life were more on the ‘whatever’ side. If its electing a president for ero games, then maybe I’ll be slightly more excited.
The president looked around the place, as if trying to apprehend the value of the clubroom.
Her hair was black, with a ferocious face and an icy gaze that pressures and looks down on anyone she sets her gaze on. Her small hands were as white as lilies. Smooth skin with her slim body coupled weirdly well with the twinkling fan in her hands.
“I already have official permission to use this room. If you’re asking for this room back, please do so legally.”
This was something that Kiriko sensei took care of. But she did say that she already did the documents to use this room.
“What is this club’s main focus?”
“Playing digital games, to further study the theme in our subjects to see where it goes. Researching the workings of our minds and the influence of games on our psychology. Then infer the mental state of a teenage student towards computer engineering. Use the research results to further develop the perfect way of living in high school. Something like that?”
Tozaki made the “How-did-you-make-that-up” face.
“I won’t accept this, no way”
“You remove us ‘cause “you don’t accept it”. Where did this dictatorship stem from, or do you want to be Kim****Un or Sta*in?”
“I didn’t say I was forcing you! I just want you to get out peacefully. Since I don’t have any intention of being a dictator.”
“Your bluff is more of an excuse.”
Ouch, perfect comeback.
She folded her fan one more time, all the while the two girls behind her were still static. In fact, those other two girls seems a little more terrifying than the president, are you robots? Or are you some A.I. in FPS games?
“Do you think just having a meeting qualifies you as a club? Don’t you think it’s a little too much?”
“That depends on the topic of the meeting. I don’t feel like its too extravagant like you.”
“Well, the music club filed, asking for a place to put away their musical instruments.”
“…You should work on listening to others.”
“I see that this is an apt place to store things. So please, can you quickly leave?”
“Nonsense, we have official permissions. So we won’t leave.”
“Actually, the school just changed the rules recently.”
“A club for just ‘meetings’ isn’t qualified for a clubroom. Written on the school rules Article 9, paragraph number 6.”
“Well, but my notebook says that that paragraph states that you can’t carry more than 3 pencils in a single pencil box.”
“Oh sorry, I must’ve remembered the wrong paragraph. Let’s just say that the school forced this rule, so please follow it and get out.”
This isn’t getting anywhere, should we ask Kiriko for help?
To be honest the president isn’t that powerful, she just looked powerful. So we just needed a higher authority to overrule hers? That may not solve the root of the problems, but we could still buy some time…
At that moment, Hatsushiba that sat on the opposite corner shot up from her chair, which was on the verge of falling.
“Isn’t this too sudden!?”
“Yes, agreed. I also think this is too sudden.”
The colors on the president’s face turned gloomy, changing her previous expression all too quickly.
Her attitude when dealing with me was clearly different. Anyone could see that. Even Hatsushiba cringed back a little due to the sudden change.
Ayame pushed her chair and stood up.
“W-What’s your problem with us…?”
I don’t know how her manners changed, but it seems the meeting earlier took effect, as she didn’t seem so intimidating as before.
Still, her attitude when speaking hasn’t changed, but whatever. We don’t need to change that much yet. Ayame can’t suddenly become a new person in such a short span of time.
“Yes, Ayame-san. I am very disturbed.”
She really seemed disturbed, slightly tilting her body, her whole body radiating her words.
This time Tozaki thinks that he had the permission to talk, he made a serious face and stood up with force.
“If you listen to our side of the story, it would help a lot.”
This time, the president’s eye turned bloodshot, and quickly snapped back.
“Hey, anonymous student… a boy like you has no right to point that finger at me, shut up.”
Tozaki sat back, deflated. C’mon, fight it more man!
“Just meeting isn’t enough for a room, but if we were a club, it won’t be a problem. Right?”
“That is correct.”
“If then, I would like permission to start a club!”
“Hah! Wai-wait. Not yet…”
I was about to protest, but then when I think about it. The president’s head was harder than a diamond, so she probably wouldn’t listen to my silly excuses, but if we could fulfil the requirements for a club, then we could secure the room. Actually if we become a club, things would get more complicated, but if things get bad, I could just leave the club. I’ll just find a new paradise to lurk around in.
“…nothing, go on.”
“So what do you say, president!”
Hatsushiba yelled with all her might, the president used her fans to poke her cheek, deep in thought.
Sighing, she looked at Hatsushiba as if they were her naughty children. Making the ‘fine, whatever, what a troublesome child’ expression.
“Fine, I swear that if you can complete the qualifications for a club. You will be allowed to use this room”
“T-thank you!” “Thanks!”
Hatsushiba and Ayame nodded with relief.
“But you must pass every single requirements, ok? At least 6 people in your club, an advisor. If you complete it then you can apply for an official school club.”
Currently, there are 4 people in the club.
We still need to secure 2 more people, and we also require an Advisor.
“And the deadline, hmm… 5 days? No, a month. Yes, a month.”
This was already quite merciful. If the president went all out, we wouldn’t stand a chance in the first place.
“If it’s already clear, then I will excuse myself.”
The president turned to leave.
“Oh yes, and…”
Before touching the doorknob, she seems to have remembered something and swung her face towards the room’s habitants.
“Hatsushiba and Ayame, you both are women. So you always have an option to apply for the student council whenever you two want.”
Finishing that sentence, she left. Leaving only her faint odor in the room.
Hatsushiba and Ayame were confused at the sudden invitation to join the president’s brigade. Uh, so as a conclusion. The president hates guys and only likes girls? Now that’s strange. After the president left the room, everybody slumped down onto their chairs.
“Thanks Hatsushiba, never thought you’d yell like that.”
Hatsushiba didn’t join this just to play games. She was here to eliminate all rumors about Ayame. Basically, she was here just for her. Well, seeing her protecting this sacred place of mine is quite noble. I’m very impressed.
“What are you talking about, Yuuka is doing this for Aramiya-kun who helped Yuuka. Just this much is nothing, from now on you can call me to help on anything. I will try my best for Aramiya-kun.”
Why am I feeling a cold shiver down through my spine? It’s true that I once helped her escape from the hands of Songou. Even though to me it’s more of a ‘I wanna help Ayame so I also need to force myself to help you’ situation.
I told Hatsushiba who was horrified by Songou to trust me and help me. The result was Songou getting arrested; Hatsushiba was saved from his devilish hands, but…
She was a little too indebted to me up to an unsafe level. I feel that a feeling of wanting to repay her debt was radiating from her body…
I just hope that I am overthinking things.
“But sorry, Yuuka decided to start a club on a whim…”
“Don’t mind it, that situation has no solution other than yours, so it’s alright.”
I can’t use violence, my arms held no more power in the first place.
“Then what should we do? We need two more members and an advisor.”
Tozaki hugged his chest and looked at me with hopeful eyes. Suddenly, Ayame’s eyes flashed with an idea.
“About the advisor, how about Kotani sensei?”
Kotani-sensei’s—real name Kotani Kiriko, my cousin.
“True Kotani sensei is a good option. I don’t think she’s an advisor for any other club.”
About being her cousin, I’ve already explained most of it to Tozaki. So I decided to explain my relationship with Kosaki to Hatsushiba.
“O-oh, is that so? I’ve never known before… Yuuka never knows anything about Aramiya-kun at all”
Hatsushiba spoke in a lonely, sad tone. Maybe it’s because she doesn’t like to be out of the spotlight. Why does she seem so sad over minor things like these?
“Ok, if there’s anything else, don’t forget to report to me”
Hatsushiba finished her sentence, this time Ayame decided to murmur. “So he didn’t tell me first…” I was a little scared so I decided to play deaf.
“Why are you so sure Kiriko will join? I’m not really eager for her to be our advisor.”
I wanted to protest.
Ayame was dumbfounded at my sudden retaliation.
“If she became our advisor, things would get messy.”
No one knew about Kiriko’s true form. Even if she seemed easy going, from my perspective, she was… a little loopy.
That woman meddles too much. And loves to push responsibilities in the name of requests. I am sure of that.
Whatever, she’s in the school and a popular teacher. If Ayame and Tozaki misunderstood, I now understand why. Hmph, you’ve tricked them well, Kiriko.
That Kiyomi is too cute, and Kiriko is acting a little too innocent. Why are my relatives all wearing some kind of fake persona? Whatever, even I wore a disguise of a normal Otaku too.
“If so, then who do you suggest other than Kiriko sensei, Aramiya-kun?”
“How about Ohara-sensei?”
I tried to think of some random teachers, but Tozaki swings his head sideways. Ohara sensei is our homeroom teacher, she teaches English.
“Ohara-sensei was offed. Hmm, saying that seems a bit lewd.”
If we can’t ask Ohara, then I have no other teacher to present.
“See? Kotani-sensei is our best choice.”
Ayame stood triumphantly. But I still don’t want to walk down that way. Well, the crossroads of either not getting the room and letting my cousin become the advisor. Well, maybe it’s a good tradeoff. But…
“…Fine, but let’s ask after we gather enough club members, then we’ll go ask her to be our advisor, is that fine with you?”
The three nodded in agreement.
…I need to find other candidates for the role of our advisors. Because these guys are all intent on asking for Kiriko. They won’t think of finding another candidate at all.
“I think the problem lies in finding more club members.”
Tozaki is right, that is the real problem here.
“Do you think Kiyomi will join?”
Ayame mentioned my sister’s name without thinking, as if asking someone out to eat.
This club has me, that girl doesn’t want to be near me in the slightest. She even went to the extent of ignoring me, doesn’t even give eye contact. Not keeping me in her view. Additionally, I don’t want her in my club too.
“If not then no problem. But I want you to try asking.”
I could try asking, she’ll refuse anyways. There’s no way she’d join. I giggled silently. And who knew that self-confidence would lead to the most disastrous events of the century.
“If Kotoko is there, I’ll join too! Seems fun.”
After school, I saw my sister watching the TV while chewing on some chips. I asked without thinking but got this unexpected answer. Why did you answer like that!?
“…Hmm, thinking of it again, never mind. Forget I asked.”
“What!? You !#$$!! You invited me so how could you suddenly retract your words!”
“You too! Answering the way I least expect you to! I was thinking of telling the club you said no. But you made my problem even more complicated!”
“You evil brother! It’s because of your wretched personality that you still haven’t found a single girlfriend!”
“Shaddup! No way I’m letting you in! I won’t let a bitch like you in!”
“No matter what you say virgin, I’m in! Even if I need to go crying to Kotoko, I will join that club!”
“Why are you so persistent this time!”
“If it makes you mad, then I’ll do anything.”
“Hey, stop acting crazy! Don’t you feel bad for our parents and this world, growing up like this!?”
“I’ll return those exact words right back to you ten times over!”
Finishing her words, Kiyomi grabbed her phone and opened the message app. Before going into typing.
By the time I was able to retaliate, it was already too late. That girl has already sent the message to Ayame!
“I will join the club, Thanks for inviting me in, I’m in your care ~”
She added a sticker of a celebrity doing a thumbs up.
It was all too late, a “read” sign appeared besides the message, showing that Ayame has seen that message already.
“Really? Thank you very much, I’m in your care too! Say hi to your brother for me.”
Ayame replied back, sealing my fate.
“She said hi!”
Kiyomi’s expression was triumphant, raising her phone to let me confirm my nightmare. Before skipping out of the room with a smile on her face. I was only able to chew my teeth as she went.
If there was a class about being a “sister” out there, I would gladly grab my sister and throw her into the class and locking the door.
After that, the news seemed to flow from Ayame into Hatsushiba’s ears. So I told Tozaki too.
“My sister agreed to join…”
“Can you come over and kill my sister. I’ll allow it.”
“When you talk about your sister you’re always like this. Try loving her more for god’s sake. Try approaching her with love.”
“My sister has nothing for me to love, I don’t know if I put myself in a monitor if I’ll calm down. But I think 2D is first priority, we’ll talk later.”
“Wait, I didn’t say for you to be that close, I just think that you don’t need to make such a clear stand as her enemy.”
“My sister humiliated me. How can I love her?”
“Wow, you never loved her in the first place…”
“She talks daggers, you too. The S of the legends in the 2D world.”
“It might be a good choice. Just try to be good to her, fighting each other isn’t gonna help close the gap between you too.”
“… grow up already”
I never thought I’d be lectured by Tozaki. But if that bitch still acts like my enemy, I’ll never be good to her.
“No matter, if the outcome is good or bad, we’re left with only one more person that needs to join the club.”
The next day, which was Friday, people in my class started to make some uncomfortable expressions. Especially the boys, who were texting with their phones around, with each guy commenting things like, ‘not bad…’ ‘She’s pretty sexy.’ ‘Those humongous breasts…’
From their reaction, I guess it must be a 3D picture. Of course they won’t share some drawings of heroines in Eroges. I guess that they might have taken some pictures of idols or something like that.
“Hoho, not bad… not bad…”
Tozaki checked his phone and said that, which granted me some additional information. First off, Tozaki only prefers black hair woman. Cause no matter what dimensions, Tozaki is loyal to the black hair.
I took a peek at the phone in his hands.
“Tozaki, is this picture secretly taken in the teacher’s resting room?”
“Should be, the picture is a little incomplete. I can’t see the background too well, but I think that I’ve never seen this girl in school before.”
“Golden hair, ear piercings, and lots of nail decorations…”
“Her breast has quite a size to it; even from this angle it’s obvious.”
That breast size is already in F territory, so she’s off Tozaki’s grid of preference. This dude loves humble breasts, about A cup or at most B cup. The most important thing this girl wearing an extreme gal shirt. Even I couldn’t take it. I bet her face is full of makeup. I don’t even know why girls do this.
“Whoa, this is good.”
Sad that we’re in class. Can’t share my lewd opinions or else we’ll get in trouble. It would be a bit bad if I’m asked ‘Which part do you not like?’ or ‘What’s your preference?’ since I have no celebrity names to answer with.
Even if I am an Eroge otaku. I know manners, which is one essential technique in keeping my low profile in this world as a casual Otaku.
“Hoh, Aramiya-kun likes those types of girls?”
“Aramiya, you want this girl?”
… Sad, someone is not obeying/following the queue.
“You girls, please understand me a little.”
I used that opening to pass the phone to the table in front of my desk, before continuing to question.
“So the bottom line is?”
“They said a new transfer student is moving into our class.”
“From another school? At this time? Isn’t that a little odd?”
Suddenly, Ayame said,
“But in the games, these scenarios are very common.”
Good that she didn’t add ‘Eroge’ in front of the word of game.
“In High school, almost no one transfers anymore, Ayame.”
“Aramiya, aren’t you going to have an event with the new girl?”
“What event? I am not a protagonist, as if I’m going to encounter such an event.”
I don’t know what she’s worried about… Why is she making such a worried face?
After a while, the bell sounded off, signaling the start of school.
“Good morning everybody~”
Everybody went back to their seats, and Ohara-sensei, our homeroom teacher came in with the buzzer. She came in with a gentle expression and her soft hair folded up nicely. Today looks like she was still in a jolly mood, as always. I never saw her in a bad mood before.
“Ok everybody, today before homeroom, I would like to invite our new classmate who just transferred over.”
The whole room replied “We knew it a long time ago.” In perfect harmony such that sensei was shocked. “How did you know?” So this is the disparity of information here.
“If so then, come in please.”
The door opened wide as if responding to sensei’s magically gentle voice. Followed by a girl walking through.
The moment I saw her, my 6th sense rang inside my brain, telling me ‘DANGER, DANGER’. My brain entered critical situation mode. My heart started beating 10 times faster.
My instincts yelled at me that this girl is dangerous. This isn’t the same as Otaku and a gal at our difference.
It’s dangerous as in the same feeling as Ayame, as if being touched at places that I don’t want to be exposed.
“Then, please introduce yourself.”
“Yes~ I’ll start introducing myself.”
After talking in a sweet voice, she starts writing her name on the board.
That second, every piece of the puzzle falls together in my head. My instincts were right. This name, it can’t be wrong.
I accidentally said it out from my mind.
“Yes, it’s written as Suwama, then Tennyo, but its read Eve~ but I’m very proud of this name, anyways, I am in all of your care! Hmm! Wait?”
Translator’s note: [Tennyo=”Heavenly girl” is read Eve, it’s one of those new ways of writing names(Not too popular). By naming with a foreign language, and choosing a Kanji that replaces the meaning of the name. But uses the same pronunciation as other foreign language.]
…Shit, why did I call up her nammmmee!? What was I thinking!?
My body shivered, coldness crawled up my spines without warning. It’s like when being left alone to bathe-in cold air in a park.
“Ah-HA!? Is that Seiichi? Aramiya Seiichi? Oh~~~~~~ What a coincidence! I never thought I’ll be in the same class as Seiichi~~~~! It’s just like miracle, right?”
That girl turned her head to look at me in the eyes.
Her dark skin is quite uncommon these days. As if after bathing in the sun for too long, her face’s makeup is also intended for tanned skin for the era when it was popular.
Her golden hair was bent and tied in a twin-tail. She also wore color contact lenses. Her nails were polished, ears pierced. Truly all these descriptions fit a gal. Her aura of wanting to go out for a vacation leaked around her.
But the important thing was her spilling atmosphere. Not changing in the slightest.
“L-long time no see, Suwama.”
I don’t want to talk to her. Just saying that was already filling my mouth.
“Right! We haven’t seen each other since elementary~ And don’t call me Suwama like you’re a stranger~ Call me Eve like just now!”
“Oh, are you her acquaintance, Aramiya-kun?”
Seeing Eve answer with kind, my teacher started to have a reaction. This is bad… My stomach starts hurting, really, I’m literally having a stomachache.
“Um, I know her a little.”
I answered as little as possible. Should I quickly escape to the toilet? No, going now seems suspicious. I want to quickly get over this thing. But Eve doesn’t seem to let me go too easily.
“Hoh~~~ Such a coincidence, right?”
“You already said that.”
“What? Oh really, hahahahahahahaha! Whatever, don’t think too much!”
What’s so funny, this crazy girl… I tried not to look at her, while drooping slightly on my seat slightly, while she continues to introduce herself.
“Okay, please wrap your introduction up quickly please.”
“Did everyone forget already? Would any of you like to ask me a question or not? You can ask me anything and I’ll answer straight away.”
Right after that, I wasn’t feeling any mood to listen to anything now.
“If that’s the case, then allow me to end this homeroom period now first please.”
I can’t wait for Ohara sensei to call out the signal to end this homeroom period right now before I dash out of here without anyone noticing me.
I’m glad that my classmates took an interest in Eve, since they’ve already started asking her about things between me and her from the get go. If that’s how things are right now, I’d better not make them any worse from that point now.
I then headed over to my club room.
I may head back to my first period of class, but instead, I just sat down on my table, as there was nothing that could be more repulsive than this.
I didn’t turn on the lights, while I just sat around on the table for a while, then someone who was knocking on the door appeared in front of it.
It was Ayame’s voice. I relieved with a sigh. If this was Eve’s voice, then I would not pass the Sanity test since the Sanity stat would drop down by a hundred instantaneously.
Ayame gently opens the door, and entered the room half courageously and half scared.
The moment she saw me, her eyes widened.
“Aramiya, your face… Isn’t it a little too pale?”
“Is my face that pale?”
“To be honest, you look like a guy who just escaped from hell.”
“Is it really that bad…”
I raised myself up and place my back on the wall, slowly raising my face towards the ceiling. The dark ceiling. Because I closed the curtains, one couldn’t see very clearly.
Ayame sat down on the other side of the table without opening the lights. I saw her worried face, trying to judge my feelings. I didn’t know she could make such a face.
“The reason is the new girl, right?”
I knew she would see right through me. It’s my fault making such an abnormal expression towards the new girl.
“What’s your problem with her? I thought you two seemed to know each other”
…Hmm should I tell this girl the whole story?
“It’s the one that I’ve told you before. It’s that girl…. The first girl who tricked me.”
True that her appearance changed by a margin, before she never was this dark-skinned. And she also didn’t put on this much makeup. The most important thing was her increase in bust size. Back then, it was already big enough to steal some gazes, but now it was even bigger.
But her personality didn’t change one bit. Always being in the group of good people. Not scared of Zeus, dealing with every single person in the same way, a type that thinks that the other side absolutely must know what she’s thinking, what she likes is equal to what the other likes. Believing that she’s the center of the world.
Looking back on the fact that I had fallen in love with such a girl once, makes me want to slice up my past self from before!
Wake up, my old self! If I could jump through time, I would change my past so bad…!
But my past self’s standards were such that this girl was qualified as cute! What did you want me to do! Don’t curse your past self’s preferences for god’s sake.
“Ok then, I’ll take care of her for you.”
Ayame spoke in a low, menacing tone, before stomping out the clubroom.
……………………………..Hm? Take care?
“WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!” (EN: “wait”)
I yelled as I dashed out the room, Ayame swung her head back in surprise.
“Hmm? What is it?”
“Wait wait wait wait wait! You didn’t forget our club’s goal, right!?”
“Uh, to eradicate the bad rumors around me?”
It’s good that she remembers, I thought she totally forgot like when I forgot about the Eroge’s plot after not playing it for a month.
“If you ‘take care of her’, you’re just adding oil to the fire! NO violence! OK!?”
“Um, choose a language to speak in please.”
“Please tell me you’re also kidding about taking care of Eve.”
Hearing that, Ayame forced a smile with great difficulty. So you weren’t kidding about taking care of her.
“I- I understand. Sorry…”
“You use way too much violence to solve problems.”
Just like that time with Songo, she didn’t say a single word when negotiating. Using violence is best for last resort. People must talk, even if we don’t understand each other sometimes.
“So… Should we return to the room?”
Still, running away isn’t an option. At first, the sudden presence of Eve caused me to panic. But now I wa mentally prepared to face her..
“Really? If you want to skip school today I can skip with you too.”
“Eh, no. I thought I told you that if you skipped school the bad rumors about you would skyrocket.”
Even if I complained, I feel that talking to Ayame purifies me from the poisons in my mind.
I don’t know what Eve has in store for me, but if I approach her normally I should be able to survive.
Calm down me, it isn’t like that time. Just calm down and take it easy.
When I returned to the classroom with Ayame, the group of classmates around Eve started chattering. The first period hadn’t started yet, so it was a golden chance for some Q and A with the new transfer student.
“Oh, the first period is starting.”
“If we don’t sit properly this period, you’ll get in trouble. Eve, you should get back to your seat.”
“Just thinking about it is scary.”
“We’ll ask more about you next break!”
And the Q&A session is finished midway. The whole class sat in order before the bell even rang, Eve’s seat was positioned besides the window out in the back, followed by Ayame and me. I feel relieved seeing that she wasn’t sitting next to me.
But the people who talked to Eve earlier were sending me ominous gazes. Something must be going on. I feel it.
The school bell rang, and that same moment, Tadokoro, the math teacher entered the room with his rigid hairstyle and cruel face. Like some kind of Yakuza or some police officer.
Nobody was off their seats; on every desk were only books, notebooks, and pencil cases. Shouting that they’re ready for the lesson.
Tadokoro stood on the stand in front of the room, looking sharply at the class, and nodded as if this was normal.
Tadokoro is one of the strictest teachers in the school. If someone wasn’t in their seats he would mercilessly slap him/her. He was also always standing in front of the room, not allowing the slightest bend of the back; his brutality rivalled that of a Demon Lord.
“Hmm…? Oh, the new transfer student.”
Tadokoro glanced at Eve, before picking up the board to check names.
“Suwama Eve… I’ll remember that.”
“Yay! I’m in your care, teach’!”
His temples shook a small bit. That Eve, even with such a gaze she’s not backing down, in a way that’s swag.
“Why is your skin tan?”
“I tanned my skin, for fun.”
“Your hair color?”
“Oh, its gold, isn’t it beautiful!?”
“…It looks kinda wavey.”
“Well I let the barber do as he pleases? I haven’t visited for a long time.”
“And all your accessories, what’s with those nails?”
“Oh, oh! This is my charm point!”
The more she talks the more it seems that Tadokoro was chewing his teeth. I don’t know if she’s stupid or what, seemingly not caring about the teacher’s expression.
“…Too much of those is going to interrupt the lesson.”
“Well, girls should be cute, and it’s a feast for your eyes too.”
“… Enough. I’ll start the class.”
True that Eve stood out in the class. But this school has no rules about uniforms, or else Ayame would’ve been had before this.
“Ok, open your books to page 25.”
The first period was math, the blackboard that was written on was soon erased quickly. Then the first morning period ended and it was soon lunch break.
Usually, I’d work up an appetite over for Ayame’s bentou when I head over to the clubroom, but…
“Here here! Seiiichii!”
Today Eve here, who seems unusually strange today, barged into the room to call out my name in front of the people who were just sitting around quietly. When did I ever give her permission to call out my name like that, but we have been calling out to each other since we both were in junior high.
“What do you want?”
I attempted to hide my expression of disgust right behind my fake smile, before turning around to answer her. These people around me just saw some real acting skills, even Hatsushiba would approve of my skills.
“Well, well, we haven’t seen each other so long, and this is our chance. Would you mind giving me a tour around the whole School please? Anywhere would be fine, since I’m free during lunch right now, okayy~?”
“Sorry, no. You should ask someone else to do it.”
As I rejected her request, she puffed her cheeks, looking very unhappy
“Mouu ~ So mean~.”
“I just have business to attend to somewhere else for a little while.”
Truth is, I don’t have any business to attend to at all.
“In that case, would anyone else like to give me a tour around the School please? You’ll get to hear the story of how Seiichi was back in eleme-”
There’s no way I could let the story of what happened in the past unfold to the ears of my classmates, absolutely not!
“I thought it through, my unattended business can wait, I guess I can show you around the school then.”
“Yaaay, thank you Seiichi~, I really like it with how you’re being nice like this, really!”
I then remembered something as I left the room together with her. I was stunned to see Ayame, holding her bentou. Forgive me Ayame, I will eat it after class ends….
“So where are we going? I want a place that’s fun at least, okay?”
I walked around like as if I’m delivering something, with Eve walking right by my side, then she invited me to talk about something jovial with her.
“Before I agree to cooperate and give you a tour, I want to buy bread for the both of us, I hope it’s enough.”
“Oh, not bad~, please give me the best tour okay~?
We visited one of the food stands, where I bought myself a piece of Yakisoba bread. Eve went ahead and bought herself an egg sandwich. We strolled on while munching on the food we just bought from the store.
I’ve gotta keep my sanity level up, before i completely lose it. My face was going to turn into a scowl any minute. My face muscle will be in ruins tomorrow.
“But-, I never thought that Seiichi would be here—it’s quite miraculous- like this must be fate or something.”
“It’s probably just a coincidence.”
“Geeez, you don’t wanna play with me~ we were so close together in junior high as if we’re hmmmm… Aaah like a married couple, right?”
She’s the only one who really thinks that way. She probably doesn’t remember how she tricked me during that time, and she probably doesn’t realize she was even tricking me. It’s definitely something like “it’s only for fun like how you see on television” for her; this girl never cared for the victim’s feelings.
Then suddenly, I had a feeling someone was behind us. So I turned my head around. In that mere instant, I saw a figure flash behind a post. I could be wrong, but it seemed like there were two figures.
“That’s it Aramiya, during primary, Argojini is so~”
I answered accordingly without too much thought, while still focusing mentally on those shadowy figures. I could make some educated guesses, but… I’ll let it go for now. It’s not like I’m doing anything illegal.
“But why did you transfer here such a time, hm?”
“Ah… Hahaha, well, several reasons”
Seems that she’s hiding something? Is her school transfer a sensitive subject? Then I should ask her directly then?! It won’t trouble me if she hated me anyways!
“Your several reasons are..?”
Her honey-colored skin, stirred up some sweat during her silence. Her eyes drooped down very gloomily and her Lips quivered. Seems like it’s a very touchy subject.
“Nevermind, ignore my question just now.”
I cut down my sentence, not caring about it since it wasn’t serious. Since I don’t care anyway
“Hahaha! F-from now on, let’s be best buddies, Seiichi~! Promise!”
I responded to her as appropriately as possible, during that moment I feel like someone was stalking my back. Even after lunch break was over, Eve was clinging on to me.
“Come on, help me study~!”
“School’s over~ let’s go and have some fun!”
(Come on~! let’s go shopping together!!)
She’s starting to bother me a lot. I’m starting to feel a strong sense of disgust, to the point of having nausea, but if things are to unfold about what happened in Elementary School, then I’m in big trouble
Even worse, when I was walking down the path, Eve came right up to me.
“Ne, ne? Come on, let’s go together!”
She hugged onto my right arm just like that
“Hey, let go!”
“I don’t see what the problem here is.”
“Well, I’m feeling one!”
“Oooh, is seiichi the type who thinks very thoroughly like ‘oh, her chest!’ something like that? Don’t think too hard about it.”
“That’s not the problem!”
“It’s nothing serious, even I don’t think too much about it.”
Then she started lifting her skirt up. I could see a glimpse of white….. I guess I haven’t seen panties in real life for a long time, but strangely I didn’t feel aroused.
“I myself am pretty fluffy right here, why don’t you try and touch it right here as well, come on!”
Fluffy? The thing’s that’s loose is her legs, and the fluffy part is your brain. Did she forget her vaginal woop in her mother’s belly?
Then again, it seems she was just teasing me. I can’t help but feel frustrated.
“My figure looks good right? Go on, touch it.”
“I told you to let go, you call this a good figure? Why don’t you go and lower your waist size to less than 60cm first, then we’ll talk.”
“Hahahaha! You can say whatever you want, but I’m not an idol or some model, not even one bit! Plus they’re all cheating about their numbers as well in the first place.”
“I don’t know anything about celebrities”
I wasn’t comparing her to some famous celebrity but to the heroines in some Eroge.
Their waist never exceeds 60, even with their incredible chest size. From 70cm cup to over a hundred. But if it’s about the waist, 9 out of 10 usually won’t have a waist size exceeding 60. All hail the 2D world.
“I’m pretty confident in my chest size. Waist size won’t be able to make it to 60cm at least, but it should be enough you know~”
“You talk way too much. Your paunch is already like a muffin top you know”
“Muffin top? What does that mean?”
“It means with you wearing your bra like that, your paunch is already sticking out at its edge.”
“Then why did you call it like a muffin top?”
“You know a bakery sweet called a ‘Muffin top’ right? It’s where the top of the muffin overflows over the cup, that’s what you call a ‘muffin top’…”
“Oooh, so it’s like that right? Seiichi, you’re good~”
I was pretty confident in my insult. But why is she kind of impressed instead. Is her head really empty? If I recall correctly her grades weren’t that pretty in junior high.
“I said let go already!”
“There’s no need to be shy, why are you shy right now? Aren’t we pals like this?”
It should be me who asking why you’re not shy. When have we ever been close in such a special way? … I’m pretty scared of the two people who are stalking me right now, keeping their eyes on me. I really wonder why.
“Aramiya-kun! What is the meaning of this?”
After class ended, I found a way to dash all the way to the club room. However, it seemed like there was still mid boss waiting for me as well.
Hatsushiba was standing there waiting with her arms crossed, with her face and lips tightly crossed into a ^ shape while emitting a frustrated aura.
“Hey Tozaki, what’s going on here?”
I don’t know if Tozaki himself knew or not that there was danger. He stood by the windows of the room quietly, gazing at people who were not part of the club, like ‘man, everyone’s lives here must be fulfilling now, aren’t they?’ it was urging me to punch him in the face. Help me out damn it~!
“Did you hear about it or not? Aramiya-kun!”
“I already did!”
“Alright, then who was that? Why do you look so close with her? You had a good mood going on there with her, and she was nibbling all over you!”
“Geez, you didn’t have to mention that 3 times in a row! She’s someone whom I knew back in Elementary School, nothing else!”
I too wanted less than that between us. If I get any closer to that girl, then my life will go haywire, her presence alone was blocking my brain cell’s functionality.
“Look, it can’t be helped, and she was stupid. I was like an animal to her so she wasn’t shy around me at all.”
Hatsushiba like she’s not pleased. Similar to being unable to fight against such a simple explanation.
“B-but why must Aramiya-kun follow her around too!?”
Ayame who was already done getting explained to probably already understands me. But…
“And what are these several reasons?”
“Well, there are several reasons.”
“I’m asking for the reasons.”
Even if you say that… If I explained it to Hatsushiba, will she be able to keep the secret? I glanced at Ayame, she nodded, seemingly knowing what I was conveying.
“Yuuka’s not the type of person who lets things loose easily. I think you can tell her too.”
“Eh? Ugh? Eh, what?”
Hatsushiba tilted her neck in curiosity. Tozaki immediately came back to his designated seat, it seems like he smelt that there was going to be a scoop. What a good nose.
“If you tell anybody else, I’m cutting my ties with you.”
I warned them, before proceeding to explain about getting lied to by Eve, the result was.
“HAAAAAA!? That’s atrocious!”
Hatsushiba burst out with anger.
“Committing such a cruel act on Aramiya-kun! Should we get rid of her?”
Finishing on that note, Hatsushiba waltzed right towards the exit door.
“Hold it! What the hell are you about to do!?”
“I’m going to spread the news to around the whole School, let everyone know the whole story, let everyone see her as a bitch. Should I let the whole School know? Or let other people outside the School know about this too?”
“Don’t! The news would rewind back all the way to the guy who was tricked in the first place. I don’t want this to get out of hand. You are just as dangerous as Ayame for god’s sake.”
Her attitude totally resembles Ayame. Is it because her way of thinking was forged like that since elementary?
“But, but, Yuuka can’t let this go on! Something like this-!”
“Hate will lead to even more hate. We need to tolerate.”
If I recall correctly, this was a famous quote from “The battle of Yufemia”. (An eroge)
“Tolerating won’t do anything other than help the other side! I know this due to the last problem! Tricking Aramiya-kun like this… She’s not worthy enough to stay on this planet!”
“Hatsushiba, calm down. Don’t say such ridiculous things.”
Can this girl be this triggered? Tozaki’s shivering in fear, why are you acting as if you’re a baby sheep about to be killed.
“She’ll eventually get bored of me, just wait it out.”
Hatsushiba and Ayame were making a worried face. Hatsushiba is similar to an angry Chihuahua, though, to the point that it made me smile.
(Ayame didn’t say a word, which is pretty scary)
◇ ◇ ◇
I think I made some big miscalculations. First off, Eve’s clinginess is beyond common sense, so much so that she’s starting some rumors.
“What, you’re cheating?”
“Are you abandoning your main waifu?”
“Ara, Aramiya, are you two-timing?”
Wow. Originally I didn’t really like being paired up with Ayame, but this…
“Wha-what, what is it Seiichi?~!”
No matter where I go, Eve follows me. Not even giving me a chance for a break.
“Let go off me, I don’t have time to be playing around with you!”
“Oh? Can’t be helped then. Hey hey, Nishihara, wanna listen to what Seiichi was like before?”
“Shut up about that.”
When we argued, my classmates seem to giggle.
“Be good to your childhood friend.”
“A childhood friend, huh?”
This is getting out of hand, I don’t want to see this girl as my childhood friend. But knowing each other’s past is a little close to be honest.
If this was a 2D world, The main character and the heroine would probably have some hidden secret together. Which would eventually pull them together.
But in this 3D world, every secret is used to bind the other with yourself.
Ayame’s face was furious. She was back to being the bully that made little children cry just by getting attacked by her sharp and piercing gaze. Her murderous aura spread out throughout the room.
She made that face and talked.
Just seeing that was already scary enough to make some people pee their pants.
The problem was that her murderous aura only worked on regular people, Eve seemed completely unaffected.
“Ne ne, aren’t you scared, Eve?”
“Scared of what?”
“I fear nothing.”
“That’s so cool Eve!”
“You could withstand that gaze!”
“Your sense of fashion is perfect!”
And so the whole class that once was scared of Ayame, started to welcome Eve.
“Ms. Eve, so cool…”
The biggest miscalculation was Nishihara, a regular shy girl who changed to admire Eve. She started to put on some cute makeup; I don’t know what spell Eve was using.
“It isn’t anything strange? Girls should be like this~”
The bigger problem is that Eve was slowly recruiting her fans. This bitch loves being praised since long ago, as though she’s a queen or something.
“Ms. Eve is already so far ahead.”
“Yes yes, Like we’re being too far away.”
“Uh, no need to rush anymore?”
“Rush? I wasn’t rushing anything. More like you guys are slow?”
“Wow, she’s so fast”
“She’s more advanced than me…”
“She went so far ahead of us!”
“You all should quickly find your own boyfriend! At first you may be shy, but if you really feel like it then I’ll tell you about my experience.”
“Please tell us the exact details next time!”
“Is having an affair with many people really better~?”
“We can try loving only in school. When we marry we can only choose one after all.”
“If we can marry 3 people at one, its better. Don’t you think so?”
“Hahaha, that’s a good one.”
Why, of all things, talk about something so stupid. Just listening to it is killing my brain cells. Please know how to be modest, at least speak in a place where no one can hear you, or speak quietly.
“Hey Aramiya, a system where they allow a harem doesn’t exist right?”
“In japan, you can only dream for a harem.”
“Japan has the rule number 732 and 184 about not allowing multiple marriages.”
We spoke quietly about these things. I recall the game “My harem has no weaknesses.” And if we can marry many times we need to move to another country. But the problem is that even they allow only 1 man many wives and no 1 wife many men.
“If you’re a girl you should live freely.”
That girl is so full of herself. She and I will never see eye to eye…
But it seems my classmates had already placed Eve very high in the social hierarchy. I don’t know why she’s so popular.
Ayame and Hatsushiba glared at Eve without letting her off… Hey don’t make those faces. Which changes the room’s original social hierarchy a little?
“Hatsushiba-san. Even if she’s a voice actor she’s a little too arrogant.”
“Just seeing her like that is so satisfying.”
“Good for her.”
A group of bad-mouth-ers stood and gossiped about Hatsushiba, usually Hatsushiba was highest in the hierarchy, but ever since she became friends with Ayame, she was slowly losing her seat.
“Yuuka is doing this for Cotton. So I don’t really care.”
Hatsushiba doesn’t seem to really care, but Hatsushiba sure has a lot of enemies, huh? Thinking about it carefully she was once provoked by an upperclassman. She herself once mentioned that she had lots of enemies in the class; maybe she could see the hate behind their smiles.
Another problem was…
“Hey Ms. Eve, are we going to get killed?”
“Are we gonna get ridden off?”
“Ye-yeah, look at her eyes, Sca~ry!”
“It’s almost the final showdown, huh?”
“Is the wind of violence finally hitting this school.”
At last, Ayame who was gazing around with her dreadful eyes had pushed the people’s imagination further. We tried to make a club to destroy the rumors about her, but it seemed that progress would be slower than we thought.
“Um, you see, can you stop making that face?”
I reminded her several times, but whenever I was with Eve, she instantaneously made a deadly bully glare. Even when her hair was in twin-tails.
I may be at some fault, but you don’t need to glare at me that hard.
“…Uh, Aramiya, I think that things are starting to get out of hand?”
I accidentally yelped so I answered strangely. Tozaki said this while I was walking up the stairs, I was only able to answer so much.
“Who do you think will win?”
“Normally it’s Ayame, she once destroyed a whole gang of bullies?”
“But Eve’s side looks very easy-going. Maybe they have a plan.”
“Is Ayame going to take over the School?”
“Is Eve our savior?”
“I think the chances are 50-50”
The bad rumors without evidence started to spread, in hallways and in the class.
“Try getting stared by that face; of course people are going to get confused. Just seeing that face is enough to put someone in the hospital.”
“If I wasn’t in Ayame’s group I would’ve acted sick and stayed home till the matter settles.”
“Try to do something, Aramiya.”
“This is all your fault, Ayame is making that horrid face because of you.”
“If you have a problem then take care of it yourself, I didn’t think that it would come to this.”
“Whether you did or not, you can’t undo the situation. You’re now in the status of the MC who raises flags like an idiot.”
“Ugh…… I’m not a MC!”
I don’t care who the heroine was, in fact I try to stay away from real girls…! If I want to calm Ayame down, I should separate her far away from Eve.
No, formerly I don’t want to flow with that Eve. I just don’t want to be founded out-those embarrassing past where I was tricked.
But at this point I’ve decided, even if my past was exposed, and I became the laughing stock of the school, since my Otaku hobbies are already well known, it can’t get any worse.
These days I’ve been sighing more than usual.
At that moment, Eve dashed right up to me. As usual, Tozaki disappeared like a shadow, is he related to Hattori or something?
“Seiichi~ let’s go to the restroom!”
This bitch clung onto me again.
“Do you not know the concept of genders?”
“Don’t use such hard words. Using concepts and philosophies or something like that. Come on, come on.”
…That’s enough, It’s time to stop this madness. My soul is ready to be exposed. This bitch’s threats are nothing to me. I braced myself, trying to keep down the shaking.
“Sorry, but I don’t want to.”
Usually, saying no to going to the woman’s restroom is normal.
“Oh? Then I’ll tell the others about Seiichi-“
“Do whatever you want.”
“I don’t care about your tricks already. Expose whatever you want.”
Eve made a shocked face, as if a loyal dog betrayed her.
“S-Seiichi, wait! I said wait!!!”
“Sorry but no, stop clinging to me already.”
“N-no, why are you doing this!?”
Is this girl for real?
“Well, if you wanna know then, I don’t like you threatening me by exposing my past to others. You should know that I don’t like talking about it. Why must I follow your play?”
“Eh, b-because… I and Seiichi…”
“Oh and your gal makeup is unbelievably unbearable. Please can you get that face away from me? Just expose whatever you want about me I don’t care anymore!”
“W-wait! Seiichi, you’re misunderstanding!”
“You’re the one who’s misunderstanding, now release my arms!”
I strained my arms and pulled away from Eve. And quickly went up the stairs to return to the classroom. I felt relieved. In fact, it felt as though a mountain had been lifted off my shoulders. If it felt this good, I would’ve done this right from the beginning. And so I walked away feeling great, Ayame was standing in the shadows.
When our gazes met, Ayame seemed uneasy as if trying to think up of an excuse. Why is she here?
“Were you watching?”
“Don’t mind it, it’s just that I can’t stand her anymore, stop glaring at random people. Or else your reputations going to get worse.”
“Yes! Uh, sorry…”
“Don’t need to. I did it so that your reputation wouldn’t go from bad to worse. Come, let’s return to the classroom.”
“U, um, ok.”
Now that’s a good smile. I hope that the awful rumors are finally starting to dissipate.
Far away from the two of them, Eve was glaring at them both.
She watched the backs of the two with an obviously frustrated face.
“… What’s with her? She looks very close to Seiichi…”
She bit her nails, as if her favorite toy had been taken away. Earlier, just threatening with Seiichi’s past had been enough to make him follow her. But now that trick was useless.
She needed to do something. She knew for a fact that her head wasn’t too bright, but she wasn’t going to be giving in so easily.
“I need to find a way to deal with that girl.”
Finishing that sentence, she created an innocent smile on her tanned face.
“I have a spell that could do that. I should be able to do it, if I do so, Seiichi would finally know.”
She turned around away from the two people walking away. Her face hid a burning passion and a hardened soul…
