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 80
“Losing, something like that…”
“I know Marin-chan doesn’t want to fight, but when you have a rival, you can’t avoid it. And if the other side is doing everything they can to get Yō-kun to like them, while you’re doing everything you can to stay out of their way, how can you possibly win his heart?”
Marin lowered her eyes sadly.
Nagisa’s voice was gentler this time as she spoke to Marin.
“And besides, Yō-kun likes to pamper others, so if Marin-chan becomes spoiled towards him, I’m sure Yō-kun would be happy inside.”
“Hazakura-kun will be pleased…”
“Yes, yes. I think Yō-kun will be pleased if you get spoiled by him.”
When Nagisa saw that Marin’s demeanor had changed, she poked at it.
Then Marin glanced at Yō’s face.
Yō imagined that Nagisa might have said something about him, but he decided not to interrupt her, since he had decided to leave her in charge again.
“Well, if that’s the case…”
Marin decided to accept Nagisa’s proposal.
(She’s a bit of a pushover, even though she looks so obedient. She really wants to be pampered as much as Kasumi-chan, but she seems to have some pride. Well, if that’s the case, all I have to do is make a front for her.)
Nagisa, now in control of the two of them, looked at Marin with an inward smile.
She was tempted to poke Marin’s cheek, which was puffed up as if to show her dissatisfaction, but she held back because she had to finish the story before she changed her mind.
“Now that we’ve settled the matter, Yō-kun has no objections, right?”
“Rather, I have only objections, though?”
Yō nodded his head in disapproval, as if to say that this was only the solution.
“Because in the end, I’m the only one who’s going to be treated like scum…”
“Come on, you’re used to it, right?”
“It’s a different story this time…”
Yō’s main concern was that Marin might end up like Kasumi if he started to spoil both of them in the same way.
Of course, Yō is aware of Marin’s affection for him from what he’s done so far.
That’s why he’s indulging her, but he also experienced in the past that too much pampering is not good.
Yō was worried that he would not be able to take responsibility if Marin turned out to be like Kasumi.
“That’s good, I’m sure you’ll manage just fine.”
“So you’re just going to throw everything at me?”
“Because it’s Yō-kun who’s in charge.”
He doesn’t know what she’s thinking.
It’s obvious that Nagisa had an ulterior motive, but he couldn’t figure out what it was.
And to make matters worse, Nagisa has gotten Kasumi on board.
“…If it’s going to get weird, that’s where it ends, okay?”
Yō, unable to ignore Kasumi’s enthusiasm, had no choice but to go along with the plan.
