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 75
“I don’t mean that. I just wish you’d be a little more honest.”
“Shut up, I’m on my own in this one.”
“It would be fine if you weren’t bothering anyone with it, but you’re actually bothering Yō-kun by pissing off Marin-chan, you know?”
Nagisa looked at Yō and the others as she said this, and Kasumi swallowed her words as if she were trying to hold back.
She was aware of the fact that this was her fault.
Nagisa opened her mouth with a sigh, slightly annoyed by her friends who were still flirting in their own private space.
“You’re going to show your face, aren’t you? That’s why I disguised myself so that my face would not be revealed, right? And since the baby-faced Marin-chan is likely to attract those who like lolis, I guess you dressed as a secretary for those who like mature women.”
“Nagisa sure is still creepy.”
“It’s been a while since you called me by my name.”
When Kasumi looked at Nagisa, who seemed to know everything as usual, Nagisa smiled and swept her gaze away.
“Why are you still friends with this person, Yō…?”
“Because I’m a good person, unlike you, isn’t it?”
“B*tch please, you of all people, is saying that to me?”
Although Kasumi is aware of her own bad character, she still thinks that she is much cuter compared to Nagisa.
Probably because, overall, Nagisa’s personality is by far the worst among the members.
In particular, her love of revealing people’s secrets is really bad, and Kasumi, who ended up crying out to Yō after being exposed to various things in the past, still holds on to it to this day.
“Well, back to the topic at hand, if you don’t deny it, then it looks like my guess was right.”
Nagisa was right, the reason why Kasumi came dressed as a secretary today was to take a video.
Kasumi thought that she had done something terrible to Marin, so she prepared to cooperate fully with her in order to create a channel for Nya~san.
―She also hoped that Yō would praise her and pamper her if she did well.
“I don’t know why you’re so upset over Marin-chan’s slightest approach to Yō-kun. If you waste all the preparation you’ve made and make Yō-kū angry, everything you’ve planned so far will go to ruin, right?”
“You’re so annoying… of course I know that.”
“Then why don’t you stop?”
“Shut up. You’ll lose all your friends if you keep talking like that.”
“Don’t worry, it’s only Yō-kun and Marin-chan.”
Kasumi gave Nagisa a blank stare, wondering if that was okay.
But Nagisa didn’t seem particularly concerned.
“Here’s a word of advice: you’re definitely the most important person in Yō-kun’s life. And he’s setting up this place for you now.”
“But if you continue to poke and prod at people, you’ll get rejected again like before.”
Nagisa had been joking around a little while ago, but when she said this, her expression was serious.
To be honest, Nagisa had been disgusted with Kasumi for several years.
When they had first met, Nagisa had thought that Yō and Kasumi would be together before they knew it.
In fact, she even thought that they were already dating.
That’s how close the two of them were.
It was obvious that Kasumi liked Yō, but Yō also put Kasumi’s needs first in everything he did, so it was clear that he cared for Kasumi.
However, their relationship ended when Kasumi became too dependent on Yō.
Since Yō was only interested in Kasumi, he could have simply complained when other girls got involved, but Kasumi was unusually reactive and began to restrict Yō’s behavior.
(Though I say that, Yō-kun is still Yō-kun, after all. He allowed Kasumi-chan to be selfish and indulged her, and never showed that he was uncomfortable with the constraints. Well, Yō-kun’s patience was his downfall…)
Of course Kasumi was at fault, but Nagisa also thinks that Yō was at fault as well.
That’s why she can’t help but complain, even though she thinks it’s unnecessary meddling in their relationship.
She knew how much Kasumi loved Yō, and she felt sorry for Kasumi now.
It may have been cruel of her to try to stand on Kasumi’s shoulders while claiming to support Marin, but in Nagisa’s heart, she hoped that the three of them could find a happy ending.
“Yō will not make the same mistake twice…”
Kasumi responded to Nagisa’s words with a small murmur.
Her demeanor made her seem unsure, as if she were talking to herself.
“But Yō-kun is just a human being. I don’t think he should be dating a girl who’s always doing terrible things to him, you know?”
“…What have you been trying to say for a while now…?”
“Even though you already know, you’re still making me say it? Don’t be hostile and face Marin-chan properly. Yō-kun even forced me to go out and try to get along with Marin-chan and Kasumi-chan, even though he knew it would be a mess. You know that Marin-chan will help Kasumi-chan when you’re in trouble, right?”
Nagisa knew that Yō had a crush on Marin.
Not so much as a girl, but as a person.
That’s why Yō wanted Marin to be by Kasumi’s side. In case something happened to Kasumi, Marin would give a hand to Kasumi as they’re both girls and would be able to seriously help her.
Yō had said that he would let them work together so that Kasumi wouldn’t get angry, but Nagisa thought that was just a cover for his embarrassment.
Otherwise, Yō’s personality wouldn’t allow Kasumi to be present, even if it meant giving Marin a hard time.
(Well, I guess he was actually hoping that I could be an intermediary and we could form a friendship group… but I’ve turned this into a reverse shuraba. …Yeah, he’s definitely going to be pissed, so I’ll make sure to apologize to him later…)
As she gazed into the face of Kasumi, who was silent and had a complicated expression on her face, Nagisa made a decision in her mind.
Translator’s Afterword: New picked up light novel series “No One Should Ever Know That I’m Seriously In Love With My Brother, Right?”. As expected from the title, it’s incest. If you’re not a fan of this kind of stuff, please just leave the series alone. I don’t need toxic people who go bombard the series with 1* just because they don’t like the genre. I hate ntr but I don’t give a 1* on those and choose to ignore it instead. Just learn to be mature and respect other people’s tastes smh.
