- Chapter 10: Conversation at School
Yuichi was very persistent in getting my help even after arriving at school and beginning our classes.
“Come on! Please, for the love of God! Help me out!”
“Look here, I’ve only known you for about two years, don’t expect me to listen to such a request. Leave the lifelong request for your wedding when you need a best man.”
“Tsukasa…! You say that like it’s some kind of quote, but I seriously don’t understand what it is!”
“I don’t really know what you’re talking about either.”
I’ve followed the story faithfully so far
If that were true, I wouldn’t be having this conversation with Yuichi.
I glanced at a certain direction
Of course, I was glancing at the sub-heroine of “Ojojama”, Sei Shimada.
But every time I look at her, her cheeks turn crimson red and she turns away.
It’s already obvious, insanely obvious actually. I’m currently being avoided… [TLN: Man this is so sad, Alexa play despacito]
“Oh, I want to die so bad…”
“He-Hey, what’s up, Tsukasa? What’s going on?”
“Shut up, I’m fine. I’m absolutely… not.”
“Well, what’s wrong? If you’re so down right now, I’m all ears.”
This guy is the protagonist of this manga. In a sense, he’s the only guy in this world where his confession would absolutely be a success. He can definitely go out with either Shiho Fujise or Kaori Tojoin.
There’s no way that this guy is going to get rejected by either of them.
But I’m just his best friend. Not the main protagonist. Which means that Tsukasa Hisamura’s love life is never described in the manga at all.
I’m more likely to be treated badly when it comes to romance rather than a losing heroine like Sei-chan or Rinka.
In other words, Sei-chan may be a losing heroine but I’m a clown that can’t even stand on the stage.
Yesterday, I was caught up in my dream tension, so I said to myself “I’ll definitely make Sei-chan happy.” But now that I’m thinking of this seriously, it’s impossible. [TLN: Baka]
Hence, that leads to the current situation where I’m being avoided.
Well, I’ve already confessed my feelings to her.
In this kind of love, the game is usually won before the confession actually occurs. [TLN: It’s referring to knowing each other more, getting closer to one another before confessing their feelings.]
Confession is like a ritual, a confirmation process that can only happen when two people already like each other.
So it’s all about how close you can get to the person before you confess and get them to like you…
I’ve already made my confession, so it’s no longer a game.
To use an example from a romance game, the main character doesn’t confess to the heroines right off the bat with no affection points.
And I’ve done this in the past world already.
“Come on, Tsukasa. I’m really asking you, on Sunday just-”
“Shut up, shut up, I’ve got nothing but despair in this world now.”
“Seriously, man, what happened between this morning and lunch break?”
“…Is it bad that nothing actually happened?”
“I don’t understand what you’re saying.”
I don’t really understand it either.
Or, actually, what does Sei-chan think of me?
The relationship between Tsukasa Hisamura and Sei Shimada in the work is at best a friend and at worst an acquaintance.
Our best friends like each other and we sometimes help each other out to get them together.
So maybe her impression of Tsukasa Hisamura in the manga isn’t actually negative.
But, the first thing I did when I came into this world was make a creepy and passionate confession.
If you think about it calmly, it’s basically a turn-off.
[I need some line transition here or something cause its a minor time skip lol]
It’s currently lunchtime. Yuuichi and I are eating at the edge of the classroom by the window, while Sei-chan is eating with Fujise in the hallway.
I can feel Fujise’s eyes on me from time to time. But why is she looking at me?
No, maybe she’s looking at Shigemoto?
I think I’m just being self-conscious right now.
I was eating the bento that Rinke had made for me, thinking it was insanely delicious.
After all, Rinke’s a sister I’m extremely proud of having with me. I’ll give her more head-pats when I get back home. Will she hate me for that? I don’t think she will.
“Haah… I can’t do it without thinking about that.”
“Oh, yeah. Hey, Tsukasa, you probably can’t stop her by yourself, can you?”
“Well, I probably can’t. I’m sure you’re aware of it, but I don’t think there’s anyone who can stop that Tojoin-san by themselves other than you.”
“Me? No, even I can’t do it. I don’t think I’ll be able to stop her from doing anything on Sunday.”
Nah, you can probably stop her.
If you go to Tojoin’s house on Saturday night and flirt with her for the entire night, she probably won’t interrupt your date with Fujise on Sunday.
Well, I won’t be saying that out loud.
“So what are you going to do about Tojoin-san that even you can’t stop?”
“Well, if Tsukasa can’t do it alone, we can get someone else to help us.”
“What? Who would it be?”
“You know who’d be really good for this? Someone who knows that Fujise and I have a date on Sunday and is willing to cooperate with you…”
“Oh, you don’t mean…”
“You can’t do that, I’ll die.”
She’s avoiding me right now.
If you were suddenly placed with someone you were avoiding, would you be able to concentrate and stop Tojoin from interfering with your date?
It’s impossible, of course. In so many ways.
“It’s the only way, please help me out!”
“I’ll take care of it, just don’t include Sei-chan. It’s better if I do it alone.”
“Why? And why are you saying something like ‘Sei-chan’? I don’t understand.”
Don’t ask or I’ll blow you away.
“You’re making even less sense than usual today.”
Damn it, what should I do…?
Should I tell Yuichi about it? The fact that I had confessed to Sei-chan.
It’s easy to see what he’s thinking about on his face. If he wasn’t so flustered when Tojoin had found out about Sunday’s date, he would’ve been able to deceive her that time.
That was a self-inflicted wound on its own. But if other people found out that I was in love with Sei-chan, there was a possibility that Sei-chan would be involved as well.
I want to avoid that at all costs.
“So you’ll do it all by yourself?”
“If only I could ask Shimada. But I really don’t know what I can do on my own.”
“What would you rather ask me?”
I don’t believe it… Is that the voice of…?
It’s the same situation as with Tojoin earlier.
The only difference was that it was coming from behind me, so Yuichi, who was facing me, could already see the other person.
I knew it…!
I turned around, thinking that, and saw Sei-chan standing there.
Yuichi and I are sitting, so when Sei-chan stood there, I had to look up at her.
“…So, is there something you need me to do?”
After a brief moment of eye contact and awkwardly looking away from me, she turned towards Yuichi and spoke.
Haah… I knew you hate looking at me. [TLN:BAKAA]
That’s enough to make me feel like I’ve hit rock bottom.
“Oh, Shimada. I can’t let anyone else hear this, so can you give me some time after school? I mean it’s about Sunday.”
“Oh… So it’s about you and Shiho.”
“Yeah, about that. We’ve got a little problem.”
“Okay… After school, stay in class.”
When he said that, Sei-chan suddenly froze.
It was as if the batteries in her machine had suddenly run out.
“Hmm? What’s the matter, Shimada?”
When Sei-chan spoke to Yuichi, she started panicking. Her cheeks turned a little red and she was acting a bit flustered after hearing that. [TLN: I really can’t say anything else C”mon spynine you agree right?] [ED: what can we even say about this]
Then, she glanced at me for a moment and our gazes met. I had already been staring at Sei-chan’s eyes for a while, thinking that they were beautiful.
“No! Not in this classroom! We’ll meet in front of the school gate after school!”
She said that and quickly left.
“Is something wrong with Shimada? What’s going on?”
“W-Well, I don’t really know.”
I wonder. Since she was so upset when she saw me, did she remember what had happened with me in the classroom?
She looked at me and said she wasn’t going to meet me in this classroom after school, so she probably did.
This was the classroom where I’d confessed my feelings to Sei-chan yesterday.
I guess that’s why she left the class, but I wonder what she meant by that.
Awkwardness is probably the reason… Well, in a negative way, I suppose, nine times out of ten.
Hah… I knew I shouldn’t have confessed whilst being in a dream fever.
But I can’t help it, I never dreamed that I’d be in the world of “Ojojama”.
Well, I’m more than happy that it wasn’t a dream, but the thing yesterday would have been better off as a dream.
I’m glad I got to see that, though… She was so dangerously cute yesterday.
“Ah right, I have to go to the club room right after school ends since we have a basketball team meeting after school today.”
“Sorry, but can you tell Shimada about the situation after school?”
