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 57
“You look like a complete stranger.”
Haruki smiled as if to say that it had nothing to do with him, but Yō looked at him as if he wanted to say something.
Haruki scratched his cheek in annoyance, then turned his gaze to the sunset from the rooftop and opened his mouth.
“I wasn’t the right vessel.”
Yō couldn’t help but ask, as Haruki spoke in a self-mocking tone.
Haruki gave him a weak smile.
“Normally, when you have a girl like Marin-chan by your side, no one wants to let her go, right? But I feel like it’s a burden…”
Not only is Marin one of the best looking and most academically talented girls in her school, but she also has a kind personality that makes her respectful and approachable to others.
Her small stature and baby face may be a negative point for some people, but she has developed a certain girlish side that more than makes up for it.
Haruki wanted to say that if a girl like that was by your side, you wouldn’t normally let her go.
And he blames himself for not liking such a girl and pushing her away.
“Well it depends on the person.”
Yō, however, did not affirm Haruki’s words.
Because he knew what it would mean to do so.
But there was something else on his mind as well.
“As the saying goes, ‘ten people, ten colors’, each person has a different way of thinking. It’s true that you didn’t get along with Akimi, but that doesn’t mean it’s your fault either.”
[EDN: Juunintoiro (Ten People, Ten Colors) is an expression in Japanese proverbs that means everyone has their own preferences.]
Unlike the time when he didn’t know anything, Yō now knew about Haruki’s situation.
But Yō was not so shallow of a person that he would still blame Haruki.
“…You really are a strange person, aren’t you?”
Haruki looked surprised when he heard Yō’s words.
Yō was tempted to complain about Haruki, but he swallowed hard as Haruki seemed to be going on and on.
“But hurting Marin-chan is unforgivable, isn’t it? So why is she still smiling next to me…?”
Haruki and Marin are now back to being close childhood friends like they used to be.
Normally, no one would want to be with someone who has hurt them.
However, Marin didn’t show any dislike for Haruki, but smiled at him and talked to him just like in the past.
Haruki may have felt uncomfortable about it.
(That’s because she’s not the kind of person who can be angry at someone she might’ve hurt even if that someone had hurt her…)
Understanding why Marin hadn’t complained about Haruki made Yō feel indescribable.
But there was no way Marin would want him to say that here, so Yō decided to change the subject.
“You can ask Akimi about that next time, right? Like I said before, what I want to know now is what you want to do from now on.”
