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 38
TLN: Enjoy the chapter~
“Onii-chan!? Are you really going on a date with that kind of hair!?”
Just as I was about to go outside, I was stopped by Mina, who looked really impatient.
She pointed her finger at my hair and walked nimbly to the washroom.
At the moment I felt a chill just as I was about to reach for the door.
I remembered what Moezono-san had said to me last time, and because of that my hand just stopped.
『Mio-chan is definitely going to be in love with Kurose-kun, for sure!』
She said so with a serious expression on her, so there’s no way she was joking about it.
I’m comfortable with my usual shaggy hair, but… I still felt that as long as I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with her, I should at least dress myself a little better.
I didn’t fix my hair on amusement park day, so the two of us mismatched couple probably looked even more mismatched to the people around us.
I remember that time when Mr. Aikawa got tangled up with a troublesome pick-up artist.
Even if my face doesn’t change, if I properly tidy my hairstyle, I think I can pose as an extrovert-looking introvert.
(I don’t want her to get into trouble as much as possible.)
As I was thinking this, Mina came to me with her usual spray.
“Oh, you’re not running away today, are you? That’s a bit unusual.”
“Well… I’m going on a date with Aikawa-san, so…?”
Today we’re going out together as a reward for Aikawa-san.
I don’t want her to be depressed or let her down because of me.
“Do you want to be praised by Aikawa-senpai or something?
“No, It’s not like that…”
I tried to deny what she just said, but she was right about it.
I was praised at the amusement park, and to be honest, I am hoping to be praised again this time.
“Make it look good, please…”
“Fuun! Leave it to me!”
Mina grabbed me by the hand then we headed to our usual washroom.
“Aqua.TT… So this is Gifu’s largest aquarium, huh?”
I was taken aback by the sheer size of the building, which was hard to believe that it was built in Gifu.
This was the first time in my life that I have been to an aquarium.
I had read the brochures several times for this day and had researched all the events that’s going to happen today.
“To be here with Aikawa-san, is just…”
She doesn’t seem to have arrived yet, because the woman with the distinctive peach hair was nowhere to be seen.
I moved to a shady spot near the entrance and checked my appearance while using my phone as a hand mirror several times.
“It’s… nice… I guess?”
Thanks to Mina being serious about this, my face in the mirror was very unlike myself.
I honestly thought that it was amazing that she made me give off a different impression just by adjusting my hair.
Then to top it off, Mina made sure to examine my attire.
A short-sleeved sax-colored shirt and short navy blue pants.
With a pair of simple white shoes to match, I was dressed in a rough outfit this time.
I think it’s a pretty good outfit, if I do say so myself.
As I expected of Mina, her sense of style was spot on.
Her decision to go with a cooler look resulted in a cooler outfit this time as well as last time.
“I wonder what she will be wearing today?”
While waiting for Aikawa-san to arrive, I thought about what she would be wearing.
I wondered if it would be a white one-piece dress just like the last time.
Probably not, because it’s kinda cold inside the building, so it would be uncomfortable if she wore the same dress.
“If that’s the reason… maybe something simple?”
As I was thinking this, I saw a glimpse of peach-colored hair in the distance.
“Oh… a light blue blouse…”
Perhaps in keeping with the aquarium, her attire this time was more blue.
Her loose-fitting blouse was less revealing and, unlike the last time, had a more relaxed feel to it.
The blue denim jeans that accentuated the lines of her body drew my attention, and I unconsciously kept staring at Aikawa-san’s beautiful legs.
Even though the beautiful lines of her hips and thighs were clearly visible, she still maintained the same blank expression on her face.
“I’m getting nervous about this…”
Aikawa-san’s peach colored hair swayed as she walked around the venue.
(This time she’s kind of… dressed like an office worker. More mature I should say…)
Before this, I had the image of a Western lady, but I didn’t realize how much it could change that just by wearing a different kind of dress.
After all, I am not used to seeing her in her casual clothes yet, so it feels fresher than her usual uniform.
I was sorry to make her stay in the sun, so I waved my hand and loudly called her name.
Then she turned her head this way and ran toward me.
However, the closer her feet got to me, the slower they became.
By the time we reached a distance of three meters from each other, her feet had completely stopped.
Aikawa-san looked at me in the face and dropped her bag in surprise.
“Ahh, err… it doesn’t look good on me, doesn’t?”
Aikawa-san was probably surprised about my appearance.
The only thing I’ve changed about my appearance was my hair. I fearfully asked her back, but there was no response no matter how long it takes.
Perhaps in dazed, Aikawa-san continues to stare at my face without blinking.
I couldn’t stand the silence, so I moved closer to her.
“My sister tidied up for me… was it better before?”
At the word “sister,” Aikawa-san jerked and finally came back from her world.
Aikawa-san blinks and after that her face turns to red in a flash.
Aikawa-san then turned around and gently hid her face with her hands.
(She’s… probably embarrassed.)
From her reaction, it seems I made a pretty good impression.
(Does she think I’m good looking…?)
With that in mind, I tactlessly decided to double-check.
“Umm… does it look weird on me?”
I probably wanted a nod of “yes” from Aikawa-san
Even if she just nodded, Mina and I would be happy.
First of all, who wouldn’t be pleased to be complimented on their appearance?
I stared at Aikawa-san’s face while feeling my heart racing.
But she turned her face away and refused to make eye contact.
(Perhaps she doesn’t like it…?)
As I was so anxious, Aikawa-san slowly took out her phone.
(Huh, maybe she’s not interested in me!?)
If that’s the case, then I must be quite the pain in the ass!
Now that I think about it, asking back and forth and approaching her myself… I was probably doing more creepy things than I could have imagined.
(This is why I’m…)
Just when I was thinking that I seemed to be making a good impression on her, I realized that I was just mistaken…
As if she had finished something, Aikawa gently closed her phone.
Then my phone rang at the same time.
“Oh, you were writing a text message…”
When I nervously opened the email, what was written was unexpected.
『Don’t be stylish like that at school, okay?』
I’m glad that she thought it was great, but the words after that were a mystery.
“Why not in school though? Well, I’m not going to be like this unless there’s something in it for me.”
When she heard what I said, she puffed her cheeks out with steam coming above her head as if she had reached her boiling point.
When I questioned her, Aikawa-san looked away as if she was troubled.
I could tell that she was hiding something from me, but apparently it was something she did not want me to hear.
“Err… thanks, I guess? By the way, it really suits you, Aikawa-san. You look very calm in those clothes…”
Aikawa-san overreacted to my compliment in return, because her shoulders shook dramatically.
She picked up the bag that had fallen as it was, suddenly closing the distance between us rapidly, and gently placed the bag on my chest.
Aikawa-san mumbles shyly, as if she is trying to hide her embarrassment.
“Cute… I mean, the aquarium is about to open.”
Perhaps my real intention, which leaked out quickly, didn’t reach my ears by accident. Aikawa-san stood next to me, pretending not to know, and closed the distance between us a little.
During the time until the opening, Aikawa-san sometimes looked sideways at my face, and each time she did, her face turned red.
(Ah~ I can’t calm down…)
We spent the time until the hall while trying my best to pretend not to notice.
TLN: sry for the late update. I was really busy last Wednesday.
