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 59
“―What’s up with the sudden call? I’m also busy too, you know?”
At night, Kasumi received a message from Yō and rushed into his room.
But despite her words, her eyes were glowing with anticipation as she stared at Yō.
Yō, on the other hand, was at a loss as to what to do with his eyes in front of Kasumi’s still-very-skin-colored outfit.
It may look like a nightgown, but based on what she’s been wearing lately, it seems like Kasumi has chosen such clothes on purpose.
(Should I be wary of this outfit…?)
Yō thinks that Kasumi has gotten a taste for Yō’s reaction, and that it’s not good for him to let things go on like this.
Kasumi is the kind of person who, once she gets a taste for it― or, to put it another way, when she gets carried away, she repeats it over and over again.
If Yō’s not careful, she could go on and on until he gives her a warning.
However, that doesn’t mean she’s a girl who will listen to him so easily.
If he said he wouldn’t spoil her anymore, he could get her to listen to him immediately, but that was a last resort for Yō, and one he didn’t want to use frequently.
“Aren’t you cold?”
“Oh, Don’t worry, it’s going to get hotter and hotter later~.”
“If you’re still keeping up the same pattern, they’ll get tired of it, you know?”
“Don’t worry, Yō’s eyes don’t say so.”
Yō tried to stop him by saying it in a roundabout way, but Kasumi replied with a confident expression.
Yō had no words to say, and fell silent.
“Or, would you rather have me in a cat cosplay…?”
Kasumi, her cheeks slightly blushing, asked with an upward glance.
Kasumi’s body fidgeted in embarrassment, and her eyes were moist as she stared at Yō.
Yō gasped at her, but quickly came to his senses and opened his mouth, putting his hand on his forehead.
“Why would you do that…?”
“Because boys like cat cosplays…”
“No, where did you get that information…?”
“…That’s a secret~.”
Kasumi turned her head away from Yō’s question.
Yō didn’t know if she was embarrassed to answer, or if she was unhappy with Yō’s reaction, but he could tell that Kasumi hadn’t acquired her knowledge through proper means.
“Don’t read all those weird books…”
“Wha!? I’m not reading any naughty books!”
“No one said it was. If you deny it like that, it makes me suspicious of you.”
Yō exhaled in exasperation.
Yō said this, but he didn’t really think that Kasumi was reading erotic books.
After all, Kasumi is a serious person at heart, and in middle school she hated all kinds of erotic things.
When other boys tried to talk to her about it, she would turn away as if her eyes had changed color.
So Kasumi had never even read such a book.
That’s what Yō thought, but―
For some reason, Kasumi’s face turned bright red and she turned away from Yō.
Seeing this action, Yō gasped again.
“No way, you…”
“T-That’s not it! I didn’t buy anything! It’s just in my room that some other girl forced me to give it to you!”
Kasumi hurriedly interrupted Yō, who had guessed from Kasumi’s appearance.
She then began to make excuses, but of course this was not a lie that would go over well with Yō, who knew Kasumi well.
“No, there’s no one who could force a book on you in the first place.”
Kasumi imitated Yō in her attitude of shunning others.
In addition, she’s very cold to everyone but Yō, Haruki, and Marin, and Yō doesn’t know any student who could force a book on her.
When Kasumi was asked about it, she awkwardly averted her gaze again.
“―Like Akimi, girls are surprisingly moody, aren’t they?”
Yō couldn’t help but make a comment in front of his childhood friend, who had somehow become curious about him.
However, Yō realized after he said it that he had just stepped on a landmine.
“Wait a minute. Why was Akimi-san brought up there?”
“Hey, what kind of conversation do you usually have with her? I’m not going to get mad, just tell me. Hey, come on.”
Kasumi, who was supposed to be embarrassed, understood from Yō’s single comment that Yō had had an incident that made him think Marin was a bit moody, and looked into Yō’s face with very cold eyes.
