I Want To Make The School's "Silent Princess" Talk, So I Invited Her (Who's Super Cute) Out On A Date Today. ~Anyways, She's So Very Intense When It Comes To Skinship, That It's Going To Take My Reason Away~ - Chapter 31
TLN: Enjoy The Chapter~
“Onii-chan… you look kind of down.”
Mina lowered her eyes in concern and quietly put a piece of bread in her mouth.
“No, I’m fine. Even last night, before I went to bed.”
“Hey, what are you trying to tell me?”
It’s not that I’m down, but It’s just that I’m thinking, or maybe I’m a little dreamy.
“Speaking of which, how was your date on Saturday, Onii-chan? You didn’t get a chance to tell me.”
Today was Monday, and two days have passed since the day at the amusement park.
(I guess I’ve reached my limit of deception…)
Perhaps in disbelief at my reaction, Mina made a little gesture of consideration.
In such situations, Mina always interprets things in the wrong way. It seemed to be the same pattern this time, because Mina stood up from her chair, overreacting and shouting in amazement.
“Y-You really attacked her, did you!!?”
“No I did not! No, well a little… umm…”
It’s not that I attacked her, but I think it’s more accurate to say that she attacked me.
I was the one who patted her head, but she was the one who boldly closed the distance between our bodies and gave me a hug.
However, I can’t say that Mina’s words are wrong, because I can think of it as an event that happened because of me patting her head.
I slowly denied it, questioning my words.
“Well, okay then, why don’t you take your time and talk to me?”
Mina looked excited to see what was going on. As if to express her excitement, Mina’s twin tails swayed widely and began to move up and down, left and right, like a tail.
“That’s… then can you promise to keep it a secret?”
My guard was up because if this spread out to the school, I’m sure it would become black history.
It’s quite embarrassing for Mina to know, but now that the ironclad rule of dating has come in handy, I can’t treat her so harshly.
“Of course! It would be troublesome for Aikawa-senpai, right?”
Surprisingly, she answered immediately. I was relieved that I had found a SSR Mina who could also take care of Aikawa-san, and so I told her what had happened as it was.
“I gave her a piggyback ride, a pat on the head, and a hug.”
“No, like I said she held my hand, and gave her a piggyba–”
“N-No the last! A-A hug!?”
Mina raised her voice and leaned forward while banging on the desk.
I nodded firmly so that I wouldn’t be misunderstood, though I was overwhelmed by her power.
Mina’s eyes widened and her body froze.
But a few seconds later, her face turned into one that was mocking me. She then pointed her index finger at me and placed it on my forehead.
From the look on her face, she must be thinking, “Good grief, you don’t understand her at all.”
“But, you think it’s just skinship, don’t you?”
As expected, the same words came out of her mouth. That’s what I would have thought until Friday.
But now, it’s different. I could understand her intentions, and I think I fully understood her feelings.
“You don’t really understand how a maiden’s heart works at all, don’t you, Onii-chan…?”
“No, I understand it, but I’m not sure how Aikawa-san feels about this…?”
When Mina heard what I said, she was in a panic. If Mom and Dad had been in the living room, I’m sure they would have made a scene right now
“T-Then… tell me how she feels.”
I’m a little at a loss for words, as if he’s testing me. It’s very embarrassing to say it out loud, but it’s better than being made fun of here.
“Aikawa-san… is looking at me fondly.”
“No, you’re saying it in a roundabout way!”
I didn’t mean to say it indirectly, but she seemed to think so. “You finally noticed it, huh?” Mina said, looking both relieved and foolish.
“So, what are you going to do?”
Even without the subject, I could understand what she was trying to say. I think she was asking me how I will treat Aikawa after I understood her feelings.
“What does your Onii-chan think about Aikawa-senpai?”
I don’t understand why she started asking me about my love life, but I answered honestly.
“Haa… Aikawa-senpai’s going to have a hard time with this.”
Mina held her head as if she had guessed something.
“Then, can you give a bit of your time?” She said so, and she disappeared into the corridor leading to the washroom.
“What the hell are you…”
“Oh, you know, stuff?”
When Mina returned to the living room, she had a spray can in her right hand.
Feeling an unaccountable chill, I took a step, or three, away from Mina.
“What are you going to do with that!?”
“It’s just a before and after, Onii-chan?”
Mina gave me an evil grin, just like a villain from a movie.
After that, my scream echoed throughout our nondescript house.
“T-That was a terrible experience…”
After that, Mina came sizzling up to me as if she was looking at a rare animal. Normally our parents would have stopped her, but they had long since left for work at that time of day.
Mina without anyone stopping her was like a lion in the savannah.
“It feels cool…”
Normally, my shaggy hair would hit my forehead every time I walked, but today it didn’t hit me once.
That’s right, for the first time in my life… I’m going to school with wax on my hair.
“I’m going to dress you up!” Mina, who was strangely excited, forced me to fix my shaggy hair. Even after the hair was done, I still had the same pale face, but according to her, it looked pretty good.
“This is humiliating… I’m sure only youkai would do something like this…”
Moreover, Aikawa-san was not going to school today. I regretted that I couldn’t say anything about it because I only remembered after Mina had fixed my hair with wax.
Aikawa-san had to go to the hospital for more tests, so it wasn’t like she was skipping school.
I now understand that it was a big deal, considering the fact that it took two days for the test.
“Now that I think about it… was there an approach all along?”
That rainy day when we first met.
Of course, we were sharing an umbrella, which was what lovers would do, and when the expressionless girl smiled at me, a normal man would have noticed her feelings.
Even if he hadn’t noticed, he would have been able to tell from the repeated skinship and the unusually close distance.
But I was a coward… and I kept turning a blind eye to her genuine affection.
I despised myself, for forcing my thoughts on Aikawa-san, and forcing myself to be convinced.
(It’s a strange feeling…)
Somewhere inside my mind, I might have been aware of her feelings.
The feeling of being liked by the opposite sex. A feeling of fluffiness that overtakes my body, and because of that I feel elated, as if I was in a dream.
“I wonder… Why me of all people?”
The only real saving grace was that Aikawa-san was off today.
I haven’t been able to text or call her since then, and I’m pretty sure I’d get a nosebleed if I met her here and now.
“Oh, Ryu… ta?”
When I entered the classroom, Yusuke was right next to me, so I greeted him lightly. I was expecting a reply in a second, but for some reason Yusuke stopped mid-sentence and looked at me intently.
“Don’t talk about it too much… Mina forced me to fix it.”
I turned my head away from Yusuke and headed for my seat. I was showered with stares along the way, because of that I was filled with shame in a bad way.
(Ugh… I knew I should have said no…)
There was no way that a simple guy like me getting my hair done was going to cause any event.
In the game world, the message 『But nothing happened!』 would have been displayed on the screen right now.
I couldn’t even complete a harem, and confessing was out of the question. That’s what I thought, but…
“Isn’t this crazy? Kurose-kun’s impression has changed…”
“I don’t know what you’re saying, but I think I know what you’re saying.”
Coincidentally, I heard such a voice from behind me. Those three girls belonged to the extrovert side of the class, but apparently, I had made a good impression on them.
I’m not one of those hard-of-hearing protagonists that people talk about. I could hear just fine, so if they could, please talk to each other where I can’t hear you.
No, it’s very nice to be complimented by a girl, but it’s also quite embarrassing.
“Hey, did you hear what they said? An Ikemen and Ikumen, you know?”
“…Shut up, all three of them are probably half asleep or something.
I didn’t really think so, but I replied appropriately.
After that, I was gazed at from all over the place, and even Moezono-san said, “Mio-chan is definitely going to be in love with Kurose-kun!”
In the end, my mental health was cut down to the point where my sense of shame was on the verge of maxing out.
TLN: I’ll probably wouldn’t be able to release chapters everyday in the next few days cause of exams, sry about that (╥﹏╥)
