- Chapter 5 Having Lunch Together
Desks were knocked over, holes were made in the walls, windows were broken, etc…
Justina was holding back, yet her punch was like a burst of magic.
In the end, Cedric was judged to be at fault for calling out Justina’s name and even touching her shoulder.
Normally, the teacher would be flattered by the power Cedric had, but…
It seemed that he was more frightened of Justina than he was of Cedric.
Well… Justina has a lot of power.
Besides, in terms of human society, she would be something akin to a princess.
This could lead to a situation where causing Justina’s displeasure would lead to the dragon tribe’s displeasure.
If that were to happen, Almort would be devastated.
This country was flourishing because it coexisted with dragons…
If the dragon’s blessing were to disappear, the country would be destroyed in no time at all.
Therefore, it was only natural that the teacher would give priority to Justina over Cedric.
“Aww… sorry, Alto.”
Justina felt bad that she had overdone it, and she was drearily depressed.
It was now lunchtime and we were on the roof.
Justina wanted to be alone with me, so after buying a sandwich from the store, I led her to the roof.
So, Justina was the first to bow.
“I’ve gone too far, haven’t I…?”
“Let’s see… well, yeah.”
[TLN: NO SHE DID FINE WDYM!?!] [EDN: Beat him up more smh]
I nodded honestly, thinking that there was no use in lying to her.
Justina let out a strange moan, and she became even more depressed.
“Repairing the wall looks like a lot of work… but, it could have been a lot worse.”
“I’m sorry… Alto was bullied… so when I found out that he was the one who was bullying Alto, I was so angry that I couldn’t help myself… b-but, but, I toned it down you know? If I had really tried, I could have easily blown up the entire school building.”
I guess Justina was really capable of holding back.
I couldn’t help but laugh dryly.
“Overkill is still overkill, I think we should be careful.”
“But… thank you.”
I didn’t know how to thank her, so I patted Justina on the head.
“You were mad for my sake, weren’t you? It made me very happy.”
“Of course I was. He bullied the man I love.”
“I’m not gonna lie, it made me feel better.”
“Yeah, it did.”
“Fufu, Alto’s a bad person, too.”
“Maybe he is.”
We chuckled at each other.
“Well, if you’re reflecting, isn’t that good enough? Let’s end this conversation.”
Justina was very remorseful about what she did so there is no need for me to say anything more about it.
Besides, she did it for me…
I couldn’t get mad at her.
Honestly, I was glad.
I was glad that someone was there to help me, that someone was there for me.
I didn’t know it was such a warm thing…
Thanks to Justina, I was able to remember this feeling for the first time in forever.
“Come on, let’s have lunch.”
“Ah, I know I invited you… but are you sure you want to be alone with me? Doesn’t that bother you?”
“If I was bothered, I would have said no. Besides, I wanted to talk to you about some things.”
“Is that so… ehehe, that’s good!”
After all, it’s better for her to smile.
It makes the people around her feel warm…
It’s a smile with such a mysterious charm.
“Yes, thank you!”
After we said Itadakimasu, we started our lunch.
“The sandwich, i-it’s good!”
“Ah, yes, it is. It’s got a lot of ingredients, but it’s reasonably priced. That’s why there’s always in high demand and they sell out fast.”
“The rooftop, it’s a nice place!”
“There’s a bench where you can relax on. There’s also a flower bed and a lawn… sometimes people take a nap in it.”
“Um, um, um…ohhh.”
I don’t know why Justina looked so troubled when she looked around.
“Is there something wrong?”
What can I say…
Right now, Justina is like a scared and nervous cat in a strange place.
“I’m happy to be alone with Alto, but when I try to speak, I’m so nervous that I don’t know what to say… Even though Alto talked about a lot of things, it’s like, my mind is completely blank… Owmuu.”
“Let’s see… are you nervous?”
“Yes, I am. Because I’m having a meal with the person I love! Of course I’m nervous.”
I was a little embarrassed when she declared her love for me.
“Well… actually, I’m nervous too.”
“Eh, Alto too?”
“I don’t have any friends, so I’ve never eaten with anyone… and the person I’m eating with is a cute girl who says she likes me… Of course I’m nervous.”
Justina turned red with embarrassment.
I didn’t want her to react to every single thing.
These gestures were so cute that I almost couldn’t help but admire them.
Justina is a dragon, but…
Before that, she makes you understand that she is also a girl.
“But… I see. I guess Alto was nervous too. But it didn’t look like it.”
“I was trying my best to pretend that nothing was wrong. It’s a man’s pride.”
This is the perfect opportunity.
Let’s ask the question I’ve been wanting to ask for a long time now.
“Listen… Can I ask you a question?”
“Yeah, ask me anything. Oh, wait. I think I’d be a little embarrassed if you asked me about my measurements… b-but since it’s Alto… I’ll be happy to answer.”
“I-I’m not gonna ask you! I’m not interested in that!”
“You’re not interested… Moouuu.”
This time she pouted.
What do you want me to do?
“Cough… let’s get back on track… Well, why does Justina like me?”
“You mean, why did I fall in love with you?”
“Yeah. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I’m not entirely sure what the reason is… We’ve only met once before, right? We didn’t actually used to play together when we were little, or something like that, right?”
“No. Me and Alto met the other day.”
“It was love at first sight.”
Justina put her hand on her chest…
She spoke softly, as if confirming and cherishing the feelings there.
“Alto saved my life. You also helped me with my injuries, right? I’ve never had anyone be that kind to me before… Afterward, he showed me his weaknesses, and that made me really happy.”
“It’s also cute when you’re embarrassed like that.”
Is Justina trying to make me scream in agony?
“But, you know, all that stuff comes later.”
“I’ve been in love… with Alto since the first time… we laid eyes on each other.”
“It’s called love at first sight. If I think about it, I can come up with all kinds of reasons… but I don’t need any of that. I like Alto. This is the only thing that is clear in my mind and in my heart.”
“…I see. Yes, I understand how you feel, Justina.”
“What about Alto? What do you… think of me?”
There was a hint of anticipation and trepidation in Justina’s eyes as she looked at me.
It might work out.
But there was also the possibility of being rejected.
She must be thinking about both possibilities and getting anxious.
How am I supposed to answer?
The answer is obvious.
“About that… I know it’s a cowardly answer, but can we put it on hold?”
“On hold? Does that mean I would anticipate…?”
“Yeah. I think that’s a possibility…”
It’s hard to describe how I feel right now…
It was a bit of a clipped way of saying it.
“As you can imagine, I can’t say that I like Justina, since we just met. And you don’t know if you’ll ever stop loving me… so I need more time. I need time to face Justina. I’d like to spend some time together and get to know Justina, and… then I’ll have an answer for you. And of course, I want Justina to know more about me.”
“That would be my answer right now… what do you think?”
Justina’s eyes were shaken and she looked surprised.
I wondered if she was taken aback…?
She was anxious, and yet she smiled.
“Thank you, Alto… I’m very, very happy. The answer is because you are considerate about me… I’m so happy, my heart might explode.”
“Huh!? Are you okay?”
“Of course! I’m not going to die until I hear Alto’s answer!”
It was all a bit overblown…
I guess it was just that important to Justina.
I don’t know if my feelings for Justina will change in the future.
It’s hard to say.
I just want to be someone who is not ashamed to stand next to her.
That’s what I thought.
