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 92
“―We’ve just finished talking about filming at the restaurant. So, what now?”
Yō, who had returned to his seat, tilted his head and asked, staring at Marin.
“What do you mean…?”
“Do you want to just go right into the shoot, or do you want to wait for a while until we get used to the atmosphere at the restaurant before we start shooting?”
If the mood is already formed in Marin, we will go into the shoot as is; if it isn’t formed yet, we need to create the mood first.
So Yō left the decision to Marin.
“Erm… what do you think, Nemoto-san?”
Marin, struggling to answer, asked Kasumi with a cute smile on her face.
Kasumi glanced at Yō and then back at Marin.
“I’m fine whenever you’re ready.”
“Eh, is that so…?”
“Kasumi doesn’t get nervous in these types of situations. That’s why I only asked Akimi.”
Kasumi is, simply put, the type of person who is strong in the real world.
Ever since she was a child, she has been entrusted with leading roles in school events, and she has the confidence to perform flawlessly on stage, where mistakes are not tolerated.
Therefore, Kasumi did not need to be nervous about filming a video, where she could always redo her performance as much as she wanted.
“Ugh… Nagisa-chan how about you…?”
For some reason, Marin looked at Nagisa with clinging eyes.
Nagisa, who was looking at her, smiled and opened her mouth as if she was troubled.
“No, I’m not involved in the filming. I can’t answer that question.”
Nagisa will neither perform nor film.
That’s why this discussion with her is already done before it even started.
“If you want to shoot later, just say so, okay?”
Apparently Marin was nervous, so Yō decided it would be best to put off the shoot until later.
Marin, however, looks troubled.
“Is there a problem?”
Apparently, Marin doesn’t want it to be put off.
Yō looked at Marin, whose gaze wandered uncomfortably, and scratched his head.
Marin saw this and, thinking that she had been taken aback by Yō, tried to open her mouth in a panic.
“You don’t have to try to make it perfect, okay?”
Faster than Marin could speak, Yō smiled gently at her.
Marin, who was not expecting Yō’s words and expression, looked at him puzzled.
“Not everyone gets it right the first time. After making mistakes, people just learn how to do it better. Akimi is just starting out, so you should think about enjoying yourself first.”
“Me, having fun…?”
“Many content creators make videos about their hobbies and what they’re good at. That’s because they think that if it’s something they like or are good at, it’s easier to entertain the viewers. Even Akimi is more interested in the actors on TV when they are having fun, right?”
“That’s for sure…”
“So think about having fun first, and just having a cute girl like Akimi having so much fun adds more to the picture.”
Yō then gave Marin a gentle smile.
The smile was intended to make Marin feel at ease― a reaction that Marin and those around her did not expect from Yō.
When Marin was told she was cute, her face turned red and she looked down.
Kasumi looked at Yō’s face with eyes that looked like they had lost their light.
Nagisa, by her side, was holding her stomach and trying not to laugh, as if there was something funny going on.
“No, why are you guys all like that…?”
They all responded in a strange way, and Yō looked at them as if he wanted to say something.
However, none of them responded to his words.
“Well, really, Akimi, the first thing you should do is to enjoy the sweets. I’ll take pictures of you, and Kasumi will follow up if anything goes wrong. Oh, but eat nicely, okay? As expected, if the way you eat is a bit messy, there won’t be any video.”
“Oh, I’ll be fine, that much is…!”
Marin was called a messy eater, and like a child, she became slightly agitated.
Yō nodded to Marin and opened his mouth again.
“After that, I’ll edit the video to make it look like a proper video. So don’t worry about it, and just go ahead and shoot the video.”
When Yō said this, Marin nodded her head, blushing slightly.
To such Marin, Yō smiled back.
Kasumi’s eyes seemed to want to say something more.
“W-What is it?”
When Yō called out to her, Kasumi sullenly turned her head to the side.
Yō couldn’t understand Kasumi’s reaction.
Yō wondered if he should continue to shoot the video or not as it was―
“―Hey, speaking of which, are we going to make this like some kind of a yuri video between Kasumi-chan and Marin-chan?”
At this point, Nagisa took action to a certain degree.
