The Angel’s First Contact with the Devil
After finishing lunch, we lingered around while enjoying the drink bar.
Clearly, Shirahata-san hasn’t calmed down yet. She still seemed to be in high spirits.
“Kaminoki-san, Kaminoki-san! Did you know that you’re allowed to mix drinks in the drink bar? It’s like a cocktail now!”
“But, but, isn’t this what they use for punishment games? That’s probably how high school girls are supposed to use the drink bar!”
Well, isn’t she excited…
I feel like her first love’s gonna be the drink bar at this rate. A truly wild love.
Though, if that did happen, I don’t think I’ll be able to make her normal anymore.
But Shirahata-san seemed to be having fun, so I guess it’s okay for now.
“So, please give me a punishment!”
“Give me a punishment to do at the drink bar!”
“Isn’t it usually supposed to be a surprise? I mean, is it really something you should ask for?”
She sunk back into a sad face.
Right now, Shirahata-san’s favorite thing is the drink bar. And also, she has a burning desire to feel like a normal high school girl.
Does she really want this?
It can’t be helped.
“Anyways, I’m gonna go get a drink right now, and I’ll get one for you, too, Shirahata-san.”
“Oh, I’ll go with you, okay?”
“Isn’t the whole point to not let you see what’s in the drink?”
She took the bait too easily.
I took Shirahata-san’s glass and mine to the drink bar.
Since she didn’t specify anything she didn’t want, I was left with a lot of options.
“(…Just as planned.)”
I knew that usually, when you have this kind of freedom, you’d make a really disgusting drink.
I’ve got to set her up somehow.
“(Let’s make something ridiculous…)”
I didn’t need forgiveness anymore, since it was Shirahata-san who wanted this.
I didn’t think doing something so malicious at a drink bar could be so justified.
Well, for now, I’ll add melon soda and some orange juice to my glass, just in case something bad happens.
As for hers… vegetable juice and tomato juice. Cola and green tea?
Well, it would taste gross if it mostly had vegetable juice in it anyways.
The result: a drink with a color that represented the devil.
I didn’t go overboard…I think. No, this is a good way to show her that the world of high school girls isn’t all fun and games.
Well, I don’t know much about that world either.
I grab three glasses and carry them to the table.
“Kaminoki-san! This is…”
Shirahata-san fixes her gaze on the absolute monstrosity of a drink.
I, too, look at it, feeling a little giddy.
“Well, you know, I named it ‘The World of High School Girls’.”
“High school girls…! It looks so delicious!”
How much does this girl admire high school girls?
Though, she’s gonna regret drinking it.
“Here. Some orange juice, just in case.”
I set another glass next to the monstrosity.
“Wow… Kaminoki-san! Can you take a picture of me?”
“Yes! It’s to celebrate me becoming a high school girl!”
“I don’t even know what the standards for being a high school girl are anymore…”
I personally thought it was typical enough for a high school girl to get all sparkly-eyed whenever they see something cool like a drink bar… wait, no, she’s a high school girl to begin with.
I had no particular reason to refuse, so I pulled out my phone and snapped a quick picture of Shirahata-san, who was posing with the monstrosity in her hand.
This… kind of feels like the first contact between an angel and the devil.
“Hey, I got the shot.”
“Thank you! Then, itadakimasu!”
Saying that, Shirahata-san confronts the monstrosity at once.
She is brave, no doubt about that. But she is deluded, at the same time.
Come on, Shirahata-san, realize reality…
“…Mmh! It’s soooo good!”
“Eh? For real?”
“Yes! It has that high school girl flavor! It’s amazing!”
Is she okay
…What if it means something else?
I mean, what? It’s good?
“Kaminoki-san, you should try some too!”
I hesitantly accept the glass and take a sip, thinking that somehow a miracle of taste had been invented.
“…Blegh, it tastes horrible…”
I need the melon soda.
Shirahata-san’s tongue is bugged.
“Ehhh? I think it’s really good.”
Saying that, she took another sip, as natural as can be.
“Well, if you say it’s good, then it’s fine.”
From Shirahata-san’s point of view, the world of high school girls must be something else.
“(…Hm? Huh? Did I do something wrong?…)
There was an uncomfortable feeling in my chest.
But I couldn’t figure out what it was, so I decided to not worry about it.
And finally, after two hours, the “Let’s Play With The Drink Bar (Lunch, Right?)” meeting came to a close.
TL: I know y’all hate me by now, but I hit gold in valo so I’m gonna actually upload now. Still no fixed schedule, just whenever I want.
