“So why are you adding more seasonings without my permission?”
After seeing Momoi’s poisonous dish, I decided to teach her how to cook, so I immediately started cooking with her.
She said something like, “I’m going to ask Kai-kun to teach me how to cook,” which made me very jealous, but I ignored her.
If I left her alone, she would just start mass-producing those poisonous dishes while living with me…
I wanted to avoid that, and more importantly, this was my way of making amends.
For girls, cooking is a weapon.
I thought teaching it to Momoi, who is fatally lacking in it, would be a way to make amends.
I’m not lying about my feelings, but I’m a little jealous.
Because lately I haven’t been able to be with Kaito at all!
And yet, Momoi can not only stay at home and have a drink, but can even cook with him!
I was the first one to attack him, and even confessed my feelings to him, but lately I can’t be around him at all!
It’s not like he dumped me!
…I don’t know, I don’t even remember being rejected at all.
Because even if I’ve been rejected in a roundabout way, that doesn’t mean I’ve been dumped!
I’m not going to admit it unless you say it outright!
Well, well, that’s that… What should I do with this girl…?
In front of me, there was Momoi, whose cheeks were puffed up and sulking because I had scolded her earlier.
This is not Momoi at all!
Before I know it, she and Sakura have switched sides!
In front of this childish Momoi, I couldn’t help but make a comment to myself.
Or rather, isn’t this a bit unfair?
Momoi’s face is so cute, but if she showed me her childishly cute figure like this, any guy would fall for her in a heartbeat!
I don’t stand a chance!
To be honest, I thought that Momoi at school wouldn’t be in Kaito’s taste, but I think this is really bad.
Because Kaito seems to like this kind of girl…
S-Should I try to be like Momoi?
With that in mind, I tried to picture myself acting like Momoi or Sakura.
―Ugh, I’m starting to feel nauseous…
I tried to imagine it, but it didn’t suit me and it made me sick.
If I show my face like this, I’m sure Kaito will be attracted to me.
Yeah, I shouldn’t do that.
Besides, I have my own charm even if I don’t have to do this!
If I don’t have it, I’ll make it!
With that in mind, I changed my mind and called out to Momoi.
“Why do you want to add so much seasoning?”
Maybe it was because I was dealing with a childish Momoi, but I spoke to her in a gentle tone.
Then Momoi glanced at me and opened her mouth.
“The more you put in… the better it tastes.”
It’s not that I don’t like it, but I think it’s cute.
But I have a hard time agreeing with the content.
Hey, I’m pretty sure she’s a regular at the top of the national examinations, isn’t she?
Is it possible that she’s only good at studying and is actually a disappointment?
I thought she was an idiot for thinking that adding a lot of seasoning would make things taste better, so I taught her about cooking over and over again until she was convinced―.
When I went back to my room to sleep, I laid down on my fluffy bed and looked at my phone.
The reason I was looking at my phone was to see if Kai-kun had replied to my message.
But it wasn’t my account that I sent the message to, it was Hanahime’s account.
Because I didn’t know what kind of reply I would get if I sent a message on my account now that I had said those things to Kai-kun.
That’s what I’m really afraid of.
But I wanted to keep in touch with him.
That’s why I turned to Hanahime’s account… Even though I sent a message to Kai-kun the day after he was taken, I still haven’t received a reply from him.
It’s― very painful…
When I think that Kai-kun is with that Byodoin-san girl, my heart gets so tight and I feel so painful.
I want to see Kai-kun.
Such a feeling comes up from inside my chest.
Until a while ago, if I had a bad day, Sakura would have healed me and I could forget about it.
But even Sakura was taken away by that Byodoin-san.
Why did she take away those who are important to me…?
Give me back both of them…
I felt my eyes burning and my pillow was getting damp, but I didn’t care, I pressed my face into the pillow.
I can somehow force myself to distract myself with Saijo-san before I go to bed.
It’s not that hard, because I’ve always been able to distract myself with other things when I’m having a bad day.
But I don’t like the idea of having to rely on someone who had treated me so badly before and is now trying to steal Kai-kun from me.
But I can’t go back to my grandmother’s house because Rin-chan is there and I’m scared.
Even if I wanted to go back to the house where I usually live, I don’t have enough money because I spent so much on Kai-kun’s birthday present…
So I have to rely on Saijo-san, no matter how much I hate her.
She’s being very nice to me, but I won’t be fooled.
Because she’s a horrible person.
I opened Umi-kun’s account, determined not to let Saijo-san get to me.
Just looking at that account made me cry, remembering all the things I’ve done.
“Kai-kun… I miss you so much…”
I didn’t try to wipe the tears from my eyes, but just kept looking at Umi-kun’s account―.
Translator’s Afterword: I was unable to release much in this series because I was busy focusing on a Light Novel series which is entitled [For some reason, a gal in my class became friends with my step-sister. “Can I go to your house today?”]. It’s another school romcom, so I hope you guys check it out too. I already finished translating the entire 1st volume in which I plan to continue on for the next volume when it comes out!
