Since I’ve Entered the World of Romantic Comedy Manga, I’ll Do My Best to Make the Heroine Who Doesn’t Stick With the Hero Happy. - Chapter 14: Saturday Night
Haah, Friday was such a fun day.
I kept thinking of Friday over and over again.
We had an amazing time talking at the café, and the walk back home together was also great.
Well, we were a little embarrassed on the way home, but we still had a lot of fun together.
I’d never actually gone back home from school with a girl, so I was actually a little nervous. Ok fine, maybe I was very nervous.
The reason why I was so nervous was because I was with Sei-chan rather than another girl.
It was the reason why I was so nervous but It was also the reason why it was extremely fun.
I mean, now that I think about it, that was almost like an after-school date.
Haah, I wish I could do it again sometime.
Sei-chan seemed to enjoy it, too.
As I was thinking about this, the doorbell of my house rang.
Looks like he’s here.
Yep, it’s Saturday night. The day Yuuichi was supposed to come to my house.
Well to be precise, he came to my house to take refuge from Tojoin, so that she wouldn’t interrupt his date with Fujise tomorrow.
This means that tomorrow morning, Yuuichi can go on his date without being noticed by Tojoin.
It was a nice strategy on my part.
Well, it was Sei-chan who had realized the merits of this strategy.
As expected of Sei-chan
I opened the front door and welcomed Yuuichi into the house.
“Yo. Welcome to my house.”
“Well, my parents aren’t home yet, so feel free to come up to my room.”
“You don’t seem so well, you okay?”
Yuichi is always cheerful, but he seemed to be in low spirits currently.
“What, did you lose the basketball practice game today or something?“
This guy’s skill regarding basketball was outstanding, and he has also been selected to represent the prefecture.
The other team must have been very strong to be able to win against Yuichi on the opposing team.
“No, we won that one, but… listen, we’re in a state of emergency right now.”
“…I really don’t want to hear it, really. But is it related to tomorrow’s date?”
“It’s related to tomorrow’s date.”
“That’s even worse then. I’m pretty sure it’s related to Tojoin-san.”
“That’s right, Kaori found out that I’m staying at your house today.”
That’s the worst thing that could have possibly happened…
Now, the whole operation’s been blown out of proportion…
What were you doing…?
“Haah, how did she find out about this?”
“I left my house a while ago to go to your house, but suddenly a limousine came in front of me.”
“So does that mean the limousine in front of my house currently is…?”
“Of course, I had Kaori drive me here.”
“You’re really fucked, you know.”
You were supposed to come to my house in secret, But SOMEHOW you came here in a limousine with the ONE person you needed to keep it a secret from…
“Good evening, Mr. Hisamura.”
“Go-Good evening, Tojoin-san”
It was already dark outside, with only the streetlights and the light from my house’s front door illuminating the surroundings near us.
Even in such pale lighting, Tojoin’s beautiful blonde hair shone so brightly that it seemed to somehow be glowing in the dark.
No, seriously, why is it shining so brightly? Is it for comedic effect or something?
In case you were wondering, this is a manga world, so it’s possible.
“I see that Yuichi is staying over at your place today. I’m jealous that you’re having so much fun without me. I too want to be a part of it.”
“N-No, It would be pretty unpleasant for a girl like Tojoin-san to come to a place with 2 men. Isn’t that right, Yuuichi?”
“Aah, yes. That’s right. So Kaori, please go home for today.”
That’s a pretty harsh thing to say to her, buddy.
Even if the other party is your childhood friend, she’s the daughter of arguably the number one company in the entire world.
“Wow, Yuuichi. I gave you a ride in a limousine in the middle of the night, but you still have the guts to say something like that to me.”
“We-Well, that was a lifesaver so thank you, but we’re about to have a very hot talk, man to man only. Right, Tsukasa?”
“Hmm… that’s right. Yuuichi invited me to watch the adult videos that he always watches in his spare time.”
“Wait a minute! I never said anything about that!”
Yeah, he didn’t actually say that.
“Tha-That’s terrible Yuuichi. Even though I made a photo album just for you to sneak under your bed.” [ED:she wot]
“Were you the one who did that?! My sister found the album and we almost had a family meeting because of it!”
Wow, that’s… I know about it since I read the original story, but it’s amazing seeing what you can do for him, Tojoin-san.
It was an extremely lewd photo book that could even be substituted for adult videos.
“Yuuichi also found that photo album, and he didn’t know whether to throw it away or not, so he kept it under his bed. But then his sister found it and he had a hard time because of that.”
“How the hell do you know about that?! I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about it! I was going to take it to my grave!”
Oh no, yabe. I got carried away with my knowledge of the original story.
“Oh really, Yuichi? I was embarrassed because I thought that I’d gone too far, but if Yuichi likes it, maybe I’ll make another photo book just for you.”
“I don’t want it! Seriously!”
“Eh, I was going to do a nude photo book next though. Are you sure you don’t want one?”
“……I DON’T WANT IT!”
“You’re in a lot of trouble right now, you know.”
Well, I can see how that would bother you as a man.
So if Tojoin-san, who has a body that’s so BonkyuBon, you wouldn’t believe that she’s an actual high school student, was the one who told that to you, anyone would be at a loss in that case you know. [TLN: BonkyuBon is a slang that means Big-small-Big, Which means japanese women have Bigger Boings, Smaller Waist, and Larger Hips.]
As a man, I can totally understand why you’d want to take a good long look at Tojoin-san’s photo album that was under your bed.
“Too bad, well, my nudes will be on your bed sometime in the future?”
“Ku… I-I have to endure… the nosebleeds…”
“Aah, I didn’t hear anything, nothing at all.”
I made a gesture of tapping both ears repeatedly to show that I wasn’t listening.
Well, I’m doing it after I heard it of course.
But seriously, if I had such a naughty childhood friend, my life would be a rose-colored dream.
In addition, his childhood friend is wealthy, which means that his life is not only rosy but also golden.
But Yuichi’s mental strength is also quite impressive.
If I were in Yuuichi’s position, I’d have been swept away by her for sure.
But now I’ve got my lifelong love, Sei-chan.
If Sei-chan had said something like Tojo-in just now…
“Yo-You want my nude album? We-Well If you do then, I’ll d-do my best…”
“Did you just get a nosebleed?”
I got a nosebleed just by imagining it and it wasn’t a low amount either.
We-Well, that was my first erotic fantasty and somehow I got a nosebleed.
As expected of a world of manga, I never thought that something like that would ever happen in the past world.
“Oh, Hisamura-kun, of course I’m not going to show you my nude photos, okay? Well, if you’re prepared to have your eyeballs gouged out afterwards, I can show it to you for a second… but I still wouldn’t like it.”
“I don’t really want to see it, but you can predict what I was thinking?”
“Of course, it’s me after all.”
I’m sure there are many wealthy people who would be willing to pay hundreds of millions for a nude photo of the daughter of the Tojoin Group.
And Yuichi can get it just by saying he wants it… Wow, that’s seriously amazing.
“An-Anyway, I don’t want your nude photo album! And you should go home, too! Your parents will be worried if you’re home late!”
“…Yes, you’re right. Okay, I should probably get going then.”
Tojo-in-san replied disheartedly… she seemed to be more depressed than before, no matter how you look at it.
Just a moment ago she had a beautiful look with her confident smile on her face, but now she wore a somewhat fragile smile.
Yuichi also noticed it immediately, probably because they were childhood friends.
“What’s wrong, Kaori?”
“No, it’s nothing. I guess I’ll be leaving then.”
“Ah-Ahh… have a safe trip home.”
“Hmm, I came in a limousine, so as long as the driver is careful, I should be fine.”
With that, Tojoin-san got into the limousine and left.
“What? Did I say something strange?”
As expected, even Yuichi, the insensitive protagonist, would notice if she was so blatantly depressed.
“Well you didn’t say anything particularly strange.”
Though I do know the reason why.
Thanks to my knowledge of the original story, of course.
Kaori Tojoin doesn’t actually get along well with her parents.
Her mother died when she was born, and her father is her only parent presently.
Her father is also the president of the Tojoin Group, so he has very little time to be with his daughter.
Once a month, the two of them would have dinner together at a fancy restaurant.
That dinner party is also very formal, like a dinner party where you just report on what’s going on in your life.
There were no conversations about their day to day life like a normal parent-daughter relationship, and even though they were supposed to be eating very expensive food, Tojoin always seemed to be so nervous that she could hardly taste it.
Kaori Tojoin is hungry for love.
I guess that’s natural since she grew up without knowing her parents’ love since her childhood.
She believes that Yuichi Shigemoto is the one who can give her that love, and she is so obsessed with him that she is dependent on him and keeps all the other women around her away from him.
So when Tojoin heads home her parents won’t be there to greet her.
She thinks that she doesn’t have any parents that actually care about her.
Yuichi’s words earlier must have reminded her of that, so she felt depressed.
Even Yuuichi, who has been with her since elementary school, doesn’t know about it, or rather, Tojoin-san makes sure that Yuuichi wouldn’t know about it.
Still even after knowing each other for so long, Yuuichi’s still clueless about her family.
For a moment, I was wondering whether to tell Yuuichi about it. But I decided that I shouldn’t tell him about it here.
Well, normally if I told Yuuichi about it, he’d be like, “How the hell do you know about that?”
This backstory will be incredibly relevant to the story in Ojojama later on …and I don’t want to interfere with that event early on.
For me, this is the backstory that moved me and made me care about Ojojama’s story a lot.
I don’t want to interfere with that event. Since I do want to see that happen as a fan of “Ojojama”.
“Why don’t you come into my house now? If I leave the front door open any longer, the bugs will get in.”
“Aah… pardon my intrusion.”
“Tch, the bugs got in already.”
“Oi, I’m not a bug”
For now, let’s leave aside the story of Tojoin-san’s parents.
What I have to do now is focus on Yuuichi and Fujise’s date tomorrow.
