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 72
When she was told to apologize to Marin, Kasumi looked very uncomfortable.
She took one look at Nagisa, but then quickly turned her head away.
Apparently, she didn’t want to apologize.
“If you hurt someone’s feelings, you should apologize. It’s the natural thing to do.”
When Kasumi refused to apologize, Marin tried to tell her in a gentle voice, as if she were talking to a child.
When Yō and Nagisa heard her voice, they understood that Marin had recognized Kasumi as a child.
So they looked at each other and made eye contact to let Marin handle the situation without saying anything else.
Unaware of the eye contact between Yō and Nagisa, Kasumi opened her mouth in frustration.
“I’ve been hurt too, if that’s what you’ll say.”
“What do you mean?”
“She said I was too heavy, too dependent, and that’s why she avoided me.”
Hearing Kasumi’s complaint, Marin’s body twitched for a moment, and then she silently looked at Nagisa.
Then Nagisa nodded her head as if to say that it was true.
With that, Marin turned to face Kasumi again.
“Let’s accept the fact properly.”
―She smiled and replied with a very cute smile on her face.
“Why should I!?”
When Marin said that with a smile on her face, Kasumi was taken aback by her comment.
That’s how unexpected Marin’s comment was.
However, it was Yō and Nagisa who were more agitated.
“Hey, hey, Yō-kun… somehow, Marin-chan seems to be angry…?”
“You can instantly tell by just looking at her, she’s furious.”
“No, but if you look at her though……………… she’s smiling…?”
“There are some people in this world who can lose their temper with a smile. And only those people are very scary when they get angry.”
Yō and Nagisa huddled together, whispering to each other.
The words that Marin had just said had implicitly shunned Kasumi.
In fact, it was as if she was blaming her.
And that was an unbelievable choice of words coming from Marin, who was usually so considerate of others.
That’s why Yō and the others had come to the conclusion that Marin was angry.
“What is it?”
The whispered conversation caused Marin’s smile to turn on Yō and the others.
The perceptive Marin knew immediately that they were talking about her.
When they realized that Marin was in a dangerous state, they panicked and shook their heads to assert their innocence.
Then, with a sigh, Marin turned her gaze back to Kasumi and opened her mouth.
“I’ve been looking forward to this trip, even though it looks like this. I even prepared to have fun with everyone on the train. And yet… it’s ruined.”
A very gentle voice came out with a smile.
But when Yō and the other three heard the voice, they looked at Marin’s face as if they had never seen anything like it before.
Translator’s Afterword: If ever anyone is wondering about the less frequent updates and not reading past afterwords, sensei is busy with irl stuff which made him unable to update as much as he did before. Let’s hope that he gets through it so that he can update more frequently again!
Lastly, thank you all for the support. Matsu has finally been able to buy his new phone that he’ll be using for editing. I hope the laptop goal that I would be using for studies and translating (at night) would be accomplished soon too!
