The Most Beautiful Girl Wants To Read A Book Anywhere
[Hey, do you ever read a book when you go home?]
I planned to return the book and say goodbye as usual, but since I saw a Saito-like figure yesterday reading a book on my way home, I decided to ask her about it.
[Yes, I do, what about it?]
Saito acted as if it was normal.
It seems what I saw was correct, and it was indeed Saito who I spotted yesterday.
Well, she is a conspicuous girl that anyone would notice, even if she is from a distance away.
[I knew it. I saw you yesterday, how could you go home like that?]
[I’m used to it. I’m reading because I don’t want to waste my free time. Why don’t you try it too?] (TN: Who in their right minds would walk and read with the potential of dying)
I’m aware that I am fond of books, but she took it to a whole other level.
I guess she spends her free time reading, just like I spend my sleep time reading.
In her case, she’s making the most of her time, because she is surrounded by a lot of girls in school, and since she’s smart, she would probably be studying at home.
[I’m not doing it, rather, aren’t you aware of the danger you’re in? You won’t know if you’ll get hit by a car]
The girl I saw yesterday was unsure of her footing, probably because she was distracted by her reading.
I didn’t want to bring up this topic, but seeing her like that makes me worried.
[I haven’t had any problems so far, don’t worry too much…]
Despite my concerns, Saito said that and ignored my comment.
[She… She’s walking while reading again…]
After school, I was on my way home because school was closing, and I spotted Saito again.
Apparently, her house and my house are in the same direction.
I’ve seen her a fair amount of times before I got involved, and then the student handbook incident happened.
She was walking slowly, in a dangerous manner.
Maybe because she was so immersed in the book, she was walking slowly, and she even stopped at times.
She walked in an unstable way, and that made me nervous just by watching.
I wasn’t sure if I should warn her or not, because unlike the library where there are few people, we are outside and we don’t know who is watching.
I couldn’t talk to her because of the situation, so I decided to follow her instead.
After watching for a while, I saw a truck coming from the other side.
(TN: Ah, s**t, here we go again)
I thought she would notice the noise as she walked forward, but she showed no signs of that.
I rushed over to her and pulled her arm to the wall.
I slid myself between her and the truck to keep myself safe.
Saito was pulled against the wall, with her eyes looking down apologetically, as if she understood everything.
[That’s why I told you to be careful]
[…. I’m sorry]
[Forget it, just be careful from now on. More than that, are you hurt?]
[No, I’m fine, thank you for saving me.]
I didn’t want to blame her anymore, so I decided to ask about her condition and she returned the courtesy.
I hadn’t noticed it earlier because the situation was dire, but I pulled her close and covered her body in a way that protects her, so it’s like a kabedon.
(TN: If you don’t know what a kabedon is, just google it. Although most of you might already know)
In such a position, the girl is looking up to you from a close distance, and once you realize that, you would become uncomfortable.
I’ve never had much luck with women, and this kind of distance is bad for my heart, but right now, I’m in such a position with a beautiful girl.
Even though there are no romantic feelings on either side, I don’t think it’ll be a good idea to stay like this.
She didn’t seem to notice just yet, so I gently put my hands on her shoulder and peeled her away before shame could reach my face.
[…. Stop doing that from now on, okay?]
[Yes… I’ll refrain from doing that from now]
Fortunately, she doesn’t seem to notice the position we were in.
She didn’t seem to be aware that we were sticking closely a few moments ago, and had a normal expression on her face.
As for me, I understand why a girl like Saito, who is liked by many men, would be upset, but I couldn’t help but smile when I saw her nonchalant attitude.
[T-that was close…]
It was probably because of the pseudo kabedon.
I didn’t notice the small mumbled voice and the fact that her ears, hidden by her long black hair, were slightly red.
