This Romantic Comedy Only Has One Funny Heroine
That was a confession that was 20,000 meters above my imagination, and all I could dumbfoundedly say was, “Eh?”.
However, any man would be like me in this situation.
Nonetheless, Shirahata-san had an angelic smile on her face.
“That… what do you mean?”
“Will you go out with me?”
“Does that mean… let’s be… lovers?”
“Yes, that’s it!”
Don’t look at me with t-that angelic smile…
No, think rationally, me. There’s no way she would like me because of my looks. In fact, I couldn’t figure out a single reason why she would like me.
That’s why I didn’t believe Shirahata’s confession at all, although thinking this way was quite rude.
Still, I had to be discourteous because I needed to ask her a question.
“W-Well… why is it… that you like me?”
“Of course, that’s because it’s you, Kaminoki-san.”
That’s not a very clear reason, is it?
But now, here I am, in deep thought.
I thought that maybe I hadn’t given myself an accurate evaluation.
I mean, could I actually be… good-looking?
No, I’m being too cocky. My creepiness is going to scare off the readers.
B-But, maybe there’s something good about me, after all?
No, what a rude thing for me to be thinking right now.
Right now, I have to think about Shirahata’s confession… but, it’s probably important to know more about it.
“That… may I ask you to elaborate on that… ?”
I asked with some fear… but I had a little bit of anticipation inside of me.
Then Shirahata-san, with the same expression on her face, said again in the same straightforward manner.
“Because you are Momiji-san’s childhood friend.”
(TL: Karen’s last name)
Give me my hopes back, bastard!
I just feel like the world hates me, and I don’t understand why.
I ask for more information.
“Why would you want to go out with me… just because Karen and I grew up together?”
“I’ve always been second in everything, including exams and physical fitness tests, and even my… popularity is second… !”
I understand you very well.
This is what I would call a romantic comedy.
For some reason, I was blown away by all the things that were going on, and I was ready for battle.
I thought it was strange to begin with. I thought it was impossible.
My instincts seemed to have sensed this, as the expectation that I could somehow go out with Shirahata-san was not in my mind from the beginning.
And even though I’d like to find a new love, I’m not sure I’m ready… for such a quick one, but I’m sure I’m actually looking for a new encounter.
For now, let’s deal with this funny angelic beauty (with a false appearance).
“Alright, why don’t you take your time and talk to me?”
It’s going to be a long story, so I sat down on a good step that seemed like it was clean enough to be a seat.
Shirahata-san sat down next to me, leaving a space about the size of a person between us.
“So. Have you ever been in love, Shirahata-san?”
“Kyu, so sudden… What happened to my confession?”
“I’ll put it on hold. I need to talk to Shirahata-san about something important right now.”
“Oh, I see…”
Shirahata-san had a cloudy expression, but immediately said, “I understand!” and quickly put on her smile.
Here’s what I’ve learned from the little conversation we just had.
She’s probably clumsy. I’m aware that I can’t speak for others, so please forgive me…
“I’ve never been in love. People have confessed to me, but I just can’t see the benefit of having a lover…”
“’But if I go out with Kaminoki-san, I’ll have one-upped Momiji-san, and that’s an advantage! This is love! At least, that’s what I thought to myself.”
“Okay, I have one thing I want to say out loud, can I say it?”
“Y-Yes… go ahead…”
The current Shirahata-san has lost the aura she had in the classroom.
Because, to be honest, I realized that Shirahata-san’s level of clumsiness was even higher than mine.
So, I was able to shout out what I had in mind right now.
“Don’t confess for that reasoooonnnnnn!!!!”
When did I become a screaming protagonist?
(TL: WOOO ANOTHER CLIFF also screw NU and its garbage update system im sorry all people who came from there)
