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 33
“―I feel restless…”
After talking with Yō on the rooftop, Marin returned home, her face flushed red as if she had been carried away by a fever.
She was aware of the fact that she had said something incredibly bold.
“It’s strange, I didn’t mean to say something like that…”
In fact, Marin was planning to end her relationship with Yō when she went to that rooftop.
It is true that she and Haruki had a talk and both agreed, but since Kasumi was in a good mood at class, she assumed that the relationship between Yō and Kasumi had been resolved.
But Marin knew that her presence would be an unwanted spark, so for Yō’s sake, she was going to step aside.
In the first place, Marin knew that Yō would tell her that the relationship was over, so she nodded and that was the scenario she had envisioned.
However, the moment she had heard that it would be in her best interest to stay with Yō, her expectations were born.
When Yō told her that he was going to end the relationship, Marin felt a tightening sensation in her chest and found herself grabbing Yō’s sleeve.
It was an unconscious action.
That must mean that she meant it.
“I wonder… Do I like Hazakura-kun…?”
Lying down on the bed, Marin said, asking herself that question.
She realizes that she is doing something incredibly embarrassing and begins to flail about on the bed.
Marin writhed in agony for about five minutes, and when she finally calmed down, she started thinking about Kasumi.
“That reminds me, I was only able to hear the last part of the story… but Nemoto-san was pretty much bound to Hazakura-kun, wasn’t she…? She was with him all day long, on vacation, and so on… If the relationship between the two of them has been fixed, then perhaps there will be more in the future…”
When she thought about it, Marin’s heart instantly tightened.
Especially when she thought of the two of them― Kasumi giving him a lap pillow, hugging and stroking his head, she felt like she was going to cry.
Not that the two of them would do those things now.
However, from what she overheard when she eavesdropped on Yō’s past story, there was no doubt that the two of them had done those things in the past.
Marin’s heart began to ache, and she couldn’t help but take out her phone and attempted to send a message to Yō.
But Marin froze as she looked at the screen of her phone, unsure of what to send.
“What am I to you, Hazakura-kun…?”
Yō told Marin that she could use him as she wished.
That’s why she can message him or call him, and recently, except for yesterday, Marin has been calling him every night.
But in the end, Marin doesn’t know what Yō thinks about it.
It would be nice if it was taken favorably, but if it was taken the other way around, that would be troublesome.
In the end, Marin was afraid to contact Yō.
“…Ah, that reminds me…”
Marin was wondering if it was okay to send the message to Yō, but then she remembered something and decided to change the address.
『May I have a word with you?』
Marin sent a message to the person who had given his contact information to her the other day, saying, “If you need anything, please contact me.”
And then, she immediately received a reply.
『Feel free to ask me anything nya~』
The message was written in a cat-like language, which seemed very cute to Marin.
Marin was happy that he replied right away, even though he was a popular guy and must be very busy.
『Umm, I know this is a little awkward to talk about, but…』
『It’s about Yō-kun, right? Do you want to know about his relationship with Kasumi-chan? Or perhaps do you want to know about his favorite type of personya~?』
Marin gulped when she saw the message that came back immediately after sending it back.
Marin was surprised to see that he was really perceptive, even though she had heard rumors about him on the Internet.
And at the same time, she felt her whole body heat up at the fact that her feelings were being seen through.
『T-that’s right, but just to be sure, I’d like to know this first… Nagisa-chan isn’t a lover of Hazakura-kun, are you…?』
Marin’s blood rushed to her head from embarrassment, and she couldn’t help but ask the same question that had been bothering her since yesterday.
“Ah! No, no! Don’t send!”
Although Marin hurriedly tried to cancel it, the message was unceremoniously sent.
She can’t do anything about it now that it’s been sent.
Even if she deletes the message―the one she sent to Nagisa will not disappear.
『Nyahaha, I’m nyot~! I don’t think Yō-kun sees me that way!』
She doesn’t know if he’ll get uncomfortable with the question― So Marin eagerly waited for the reply, but the other party only replied in an amusing manner.
When Marin saw the text, she was doubly relieved.
『T-then, I’d be happy to discuss it with you… And also, I wish that you can keep it a secret from Hazakura-kun…』
『Okay, okay. Let’s talk on the phone for now nya~.』
『Is that okay with you…?』
『Yeah. The only thing you need to know is that the person that you’ll be dealing with is pretty tough, so you should be prepared nya~.』
Marin was curious whether the person that he was referring to was Kasumi or Yō, but she dialed the phone number that was given to her anyway.
