The Angel Wishes for a Drink Bar
It’s currently the day after I went out with Kakeru.
I haven’t even started on the summer homework yet, as I believe the real battle begins on those days nearing the end of summer vacation. And so, I spent the day lying around idly without doing anything in particular.
The day that I was supposed to go out with Shirahata-san was here.
I began heading toward the meeting location that was agreed upon, and of course, I was wearing a set of casual summer clothes that Keru had picked out for me.
Since I was meeting Mr. Shirahata, I didn’t want to keep him waiting, so I left the house to arrive about ten minutes early.
Yet, by the time I arrived, Shirahata-san was already there. She was dressed in a white one-piece dress, making her natural angelic beauty stand out even more than usual.
As we were meeting right in front of the station, Shirahata-san was garnering the attention of many passersby.
Even an amateur street musician who had been performing since the early morning involuntarily stopped to look over here.
Due to her true klutziness, I had forgotten about the fact that Shirahata-san was, indeed, an extremely beautiful girl…
She waves at me innocently, seemingly buzzing with excitement.
Hey there, strangers. Why are you guys waving at me? You’re smiling so much, too. I’m not an idol or anything, you know?
“Good morning, Shirahata-san.”
But I am already immune to all of those hostile glares. I’ve been out with equally-pretty Karen before.
“Good morning! You’re so early! There’s still ten minutes until the meeting time!”
“That’s my line. How long have you been here for?”
“Let’s see… About an hour ago?
“I saw in a shoujo manga that the heroine was waiting for her date one hour before the meeting time. I wanted to be like that!”
“Don’t use shoujo manga as a model for everything! It’s all planned out, you know?”
If you do that, there’s no point in setting a meeting time, is there?
She really is naive. Well, she did say that she’s never had any friends before, so it’s possible that she’s just inexperienced with this kind of thing.
I guess I’ll have to teach her about this as well.
“Either way, I’m still sorry for keeping you waiting.”
“No, no! I just came too early, so it’s okay! Let’s just go to the restaurant as soon as possible! At this hour… it should be pretty quiet there!”
“Is that so? Okay, let’s go then.”
I wonder if there are any other high school girls who would be so excited at the mere thought of going to a family restaurant.
But, well… I think that’s part of Shirahata-san’s charm. I wouldn’t want that part of her to be lost… Still, don’t get all sparkly when you see the drink bar!
It’s embarrassing for me!
We quickly headed to a family restaurant in front of the station.
As expected at this time of the day, there weren’t many people in the restaurant. It was like the border between morning and noon.
And maybe it was because Shirahata-san was extremely lucky, again, we actually got a table right in front of the self-serve drink bar.
“Uwahh, it’s like a dream! There’s a dream machine full of hopes right in front of us! Kaminoki-san!”
“I see it.”
The first drink bar photo session of the day starts now.
Ahem. Shirahata-san really looks like a weirdo right now… well, she definitely is one…
“Although it’s not lunchtime yet, should we order a full meal?”
“Yes! I’m starving right now because I skipped dinner last night and breakfast today so that I can go to a family restaurant!”
“You’re way too passionate about family restaurants…”
Shirahata-san is the only one I know who comes to the family restaurant like this.
“I’ll get my money’s worth this time!”
She seems motivated. This is what it’s come to…
I called the waitress over and ordered carbonara, while Shirahata-san ordered meat spaghetti. And of course, we ordered drinks for the self-serve.
When Shirahata-san excitedly said, “Drink bar, please!”, the waitress was a little taken aback, but she went back to her place with a reddish blush on her cheeks, muttering, “Cute.”
Anything is possible if you’re cute!
In my next life, I want to be an absolute beauty.
