I Went Out With a Losing Heroine, But Before I knew It, My Childhood Friend, Who's Supposed to be The Winning Heroine Thought We Were Dating, Got Angry and Went Into an Argument - Chapter 16
Proofreader: Mowaso (only for this chapter, I needed some help on some lines from him -AJ)
That night― Yō was using his computer while petting Nya~-san who was curled up on his lap sleeping.
After the incident, Marin contacted him, but the person in question, Kasumi, didn’t show up at all.
He still checked his phone from time to time, but no matter how many times he checked, he hadn’t received any message from Kasumi.
(You can’t even say that much, can you…?)
He thought that this could get her to sit down for a discussion by provoking Kasumi, who hated to lose, but apparently it wasn’t enough.
While Yō was thinking about this, he received an email on his computer.
When he opened it, he found the following message inside:
『It’s done, please check.』
It was a short, one-sentence message.
Yō smiled bitterly as he read the email, which fully expressed the sender’s blandness.
“This is definitely today’s guesswork…”
Yō half-heartedly checked the two files attached to the email.
When he opened one of the files, he heard a voice that was so beautiful that everyone couldn’t help but listen to it.
As Yō listened to the voice, he opened the video file that he had prepared beforehand and played the video along with the voice.
After he finished listening to it, he opened another attached file.
This time, he could hear background music played on the piano instead of the voice.
It was a perfect job as usual, and Yō smiled again.
(Really, what’s up with this person’s mentality…)
After the check, Yō opened the email to reply.
『No problem, it’s perfect.』
After sending that, he immediately started the final editing of the video using the narration and background music he had received.
This is a kind of hobby that Yō has been doing since he was in the first year of middle school.
His parents used to complain that he didn’t participate in club activities, but now they don’t pay attention to him at all.
Because of this, Yō was able to do whatever he wanted on his days off.
Normally, Yō would just concentrate on editing, but today he couldn’t do that anymore.
That’s because he received a reply from the person with whom he had just exchanged messages.
Usually, there are no replies to Yō’s confirmation email.
The fact that he had received a reply today meant that his lunch break had not ended in vain.
(I hope this is a decent message…)
Thinking about this, Yō opened the mail.
And there it was read as―
『Because I’m the only one who can do this.』
Obviously, it was an answer that Yō did not want.
When Yō saw the content, he couldn’t help but look up at the ceiling.
He didn’t know if he was tying her up or if she was tying him up.
However, it seemed that this case had deep roots and would not be an easy one to solve.
(Or maybe it’s just a completely guesswork email…)
Once again, Yō pondered what to do about the assertive sender of the email.
“Well, I guess I’ll just have to do what I can for now.”
What should be his priority?
Looking back on the day, Yō reaffirmed his decision.
As soon as Yō made his decision, the cat that had been sleeping on his lap called out as if it had been waiting for him.
“Nya~-san, are you awake?
When Yō called out its name, Nya~-san rubbed its head against his stomach in a good mood.
It’s still the same old pampered one.
“I’ll be saved just by your presence, Nya~-san.”
When Yō, who was feeling a little blue from having so many things on his mind, muttered this, Nya-san tilted its head curiously.
It’s no wonder that it didn’t understand a word that Yō said.
However, perhaps sensing something from Yō’s expression, Nya-san suddenly climbed up on his shoulder.
And then, it licked his cheek with its tongue.
“Are you comforting me?”
They say that cats can understand human emotions, and seeing Nya-san trying to cheer him up, it might be true.
Thinking about this, Yō decided to stop editing the video today and pampered Nya-san instead.
Translator’s Comment: Hello there everyone! Today is the day I turn 18 years old, and these chapters are my gift to you guys! Did you enjoy the read? I sure do hope so. Currently as of writing this, this chapter is the latest one from the source material. As long as the author updates this series on a daily basis, expect that after an hour or two (if my Editor is here) of the raw material, I’ll be able to put out a chapter daily too. I’ve also set up a new goal in my Ko-Fi account for today, anyone who has spare money, any amount will do!
Editor’s Comment: Editor-san here! I hope you liked Nekokuro’s new web novel! Also Happy Birthday to this hard working Translator and my friend: AJ! (please translate much faster wwwwww) anyways, I’ll make my stand here right now that Kasumi is a b*tch and Marin is my daughter/little sister that I would protect. Stay pure kings, purge all the th*ts. That’s all! Hope you guys have fun reading this new series that we picked up!
