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 28: At the Store...?
After finishing up with the haunted house, we caught up with those two and went straight back to doing the surveillance date.
There was no particular interruption from Tojoin-san and Yuuichi and Fujise’s date continued like normal.
Sei-chan and I also enjoyed riding attractions at various places, and so the time had already passed into the evening.
It’s about time…
In the original story, this is the time when Yuuichi and Fujise went to a store, this is the same store where Tojoin-san comes and interrupts their date.
Our next stop was the largest concession store in the park.
It’s not a store that offers any food or drinks but it’s more of a souvenir shop than anything.
While they were picking out souvenirs and such, Tojoin-san came and paid a visit.
Yuuichi was thinking of confessing his love at night, with beautiful scenery and pretty lights, but since Tojoin-san arrives and interrupts them, he couldn’t confess his feelings on time.
Perhaps that is where Tojoin-san will come to interfere with them this time around as well, and that’s when we’ll have to stop her from interfering with them.
I’m still unsure on how I’m gonna stop it though.
And… I’m still contemplating whether or not I should really stop her.
To be honest, I personally don’t want to stop her right now.
It’s all because I don’t want the original story to end here.
However, when I think about Sei-chan’s feelings towards this situation, I honestly feel that it would be better to stop her instead.
What should I do….?
I was feeling troubled and conflicted while Yuuichi and Fujise entered the shop just as they did in the original story.
Sei-chan and I followed them into the store quietly.
The store is quite large, so if you hide far enough, you won’t be spotted.
“Fufu, so there’s also stuff like that here.”
Sei-chan was looking at the products displayed at the store.
Since Tojoin-san hadn’t shown up until now, Sei-chan had become a bit careless, or rather, she had let down her guard.
Well, that’s to be expected of course. We’ve been watching them ever since noon and we pretty much joined them alongside their entire date.
Well, in the scenario we are in now, I don’t think we can handle Tojoin-san if she decides to interfere with them now… Well, I would prefer that scenario to be honest.
They have sweets as souvenirs, but what stood out the most were the large stuffed animals and head accessories. [TLN: Head accessories like those headbands with cat ears on them.]
It’s the kind of head accessory that high school girls would buy when they enter an amusement park. Then they’d go ahead and take pictures of themselves wearing those accessories whilst still in the park.
Well one way to describe this experience is: You see it at the park, and whilst being all-excited and everything, you go ahead and buy one of them. But whenever you try to wear them outside the park, it just becomes a hindrance, and so you get tired of just leaving it all-alone at home, and that’s when you decide to throw it away.
Well, it’s a bit of a biased view from my side.
There are many different types of headgear present in the stop. There are some with bear ears, some with rabbit ears, some with cat ears, and many more.
Un~, I think it looks pretty cute, but it’s not enough for me to buy it as a souvenir.
Ah, but I have a very veryyyy cute sister at home called Rinke.
There was a rabbit-eared head accessory with a few fluffy parts reaching the chest. The rabbit ears would bounce around whenever you pull on them.
I can already imagine Rinke moving the ears with a tint of embarrassment on her face.
A’ight, let’s go ahead and buy one immediately.
No, wait, calm down me.
Am I really going to buy this? Will Rinke really be willing to wear this headband?
If it’s Rinke, I’m pretty sure she would say “Are you stupid or something?” and then immediately refuse to wear it.
Would she be willing to wear it if I ask her though?
I’ll just go ahead and ask her first…
I turned on my phone, opened RINE, and sent a message to Rinke.
I wondered if it would be easier if I just snapped a picture of the accessory and sent it to her.
With that in mind, I turned on my camera and picked up the rabbit accessory.
“Eh? Hisamura, are you really going to buy that?”
“I’m a little lost right now.”
“W-Well, I didn’t know you had that type of hobby.”
“No, it’s not for me. I was wondering if my sister would like it.”
“Your sister? How old is she?”
“One year younger than me.”
“You’re going to give this to your sister? Who is a freshman in highschool?”
Sei-chan also picked up another Rabbit accessory and asked.
Apparently, Rinke finds me a bit of a pain, so she wouldn’t be happy getting a souvenir from me.
“No, I don’t think she’ll actually wear it. But I’ll still go ahead and ask her anyway. I think it would be really adorable if she decided to wear it.”
If a slightly tsundere-type girl like Rinke were to wear it, I think it would be the cutest moe-gap ever.
If she actually wore it, I would immediately snap a picture and save it permanently.
Well, I guess I’ll just have to go and ask her about it then.
That’s what I was thinking until…
When I heard my name called I turned to look at Sei-chan next to me and saw… A RABBIT-EARED SEI-CHAN.
I didn’t expect Sei-chan to suddenly put on the rabbit ears.
“W-Well, does it look good on me…?”
Sei-chan asked me with a face that showed a slightly embarrassed and shy smile.
“Ah, Uh… Sorry, it was by reflex.”
The next thing I knew, I was taking a picture of Sei-chan with the camera app I had opened earlier.
“Wha-What are you doing?!”
“Sorry, it was a spinal reflex. My body was moving before my brain could tell me what I was actually doing.” [TLN: I need a rabbit Sei-chan illust ugh.] [ED: don’t we all.]
“Stop spitting nonsense! Delete it! Right now!”
Sei-chan said as she removed her rabbit-ear accessory, her face turned bright red after seeing me take a picture of her wearing it.
Yeah. That was really rude of me.
I thought that and looked toward my screen to delete it.
But all I could see on it was a beautiful Angel.
“I don’t want to delete it, I want to keep it as a family heirloom. I want to print it and frame it for a display.”
“No, you can’t!?”
I was just being honest though.
I really thought so. It’s such a waste deleting such a cute picture of Sei-chan.
I want to save it for the rest of my life.
“Aww, really? It’s extremely cute, you know?”
“Please, I won’t show it to anyone. I’ll look at it every morning so no matter how hard the day is, it will make me want to live on till the very next.”
“E-Every morning? That’s even worse! That’s extremely embarrassing.”
“Is it really no good…?”
I tried to be persistent about it but it seems to be useless.
Ah… But I can’t just remove such a cute little Sei-chan from my life.
“Ku… Sei-chan… you erase it. I can’t bring myself to do such a thing.”
I handed my phone to Sei-chan with shaky hands.
Sei-chan took it and seemed to have deleted the picture.
“Ah… There’s goes the opportunity of a lifetime…”
“W-Well uh, why don’t we, you know, take a picture together instead?”
“Y-You know, like Shiho and Shigemoto over there.”
When I shifted my gaze in the direction Sei-chan was looking at, I saw Fujise and Yuichi there, face to face, with their bodies quite close to each other. Fujise was busy holding her phone and taking a selfie.
They both wore matching bear-eared head accessories and looked like a bakauple. [TLN: A bakauple for those that don’t know means Stupid couple who flirts everywhere without minding the Time, Place, Occasion,]
They’re not dating yet, are they?
Hmm… There’s something about that scene that doesn’t feel right.
I got hit with a sense of déjà vu or something similar to that.
“If you don’t want to take a picture with me like those two. It’s fine, I don’t mind.”
“Eh? So I should wear a rabbit accessory as well?”
Well, It looks like I’ll have to wear those rabbit-eared head accessories too.
Cause if I do that I’ll be able to take a picture with her just like those two over there.
“Of course I will.”
“T-That was a quick answer.”
On the other hand, I can’t see any reason not to do such a thing.
I’d be willing to even pay to have another photo of Sei-chan in her bunny ears, and I’d be willing to pay even more to have that photo taken with me.
“Well, let me just put this on…”
“Pfft… S-Sorry, it doesn’t look that good on you.”
“Yeah, I didn’t think it would look good on me either, but I didn’t think it would look so bad that Sei-chan would laugh at me…”
Well, I’m glad though, since I could see that kind of smile on Sei-chan’s face.
In the meantime, Sei-chan is going to wear it again… Yeah, so cute, such an angel, so great, so amazing.
Sei-chan has already opened the camera on my phone, so we’ll use that to take the picture.
“L-Look, get c-closer.”
In my opinion, I’ve already put my face pretty close to hers, but Sei-chan says it’s not enough.
I saw the way Fujise and Yuichi took the picture earlier, so it seems that Sei wants to do it just like those two.
They were so close together, cheek to cheek, right?
As expected, I couldn’t go that far, so I got a little closer till our shoulders touched.
“T-That should be enough. L-Let’s take the picture.” [TLN: God, they’re so cute.]
Sei-chan said and pressed her finger on the screen of the phone, making a click sound.
Me and Sei-chan immediately distanced ourselves after taking the picture.
“L-Looks like we got it.”
“T-That’s good to know.”
My heart couldn’t handle the idea of getting that close to her again.
No, I had gotten even closer than that in the haunted house earlier, but that was different.
I was approached by Sei-chan, and besides, Sei-chan was in an extreme state at the time, so I don’t remember much about being so attached to her at that time.
But now, it was me approaching her, and Sei-chan and I are both bare-faced, which is even more embarrassing.
After Sei-chan gave my phone back, I immediately went to look at the pictures that were taken , both of us had red cheeks and a slightly awkward expression on our faces.
I don’t care anymore, but Sei-chan is the best because she still looks cute, even when she looks like this.
“Ah, I-I’ll send you the picture later on RINE.”
“A-Ah yeah, please do.”
It’s insanely embarrassing, but I think we should share this picture together after all.
Hmm? Wait a minute, I had some kind of déjà vu feeling about the line I had just said now, too.
What’s with this déjà vu…?
…I GOT IT!
Eh? Wait… but why?
I realized something and immediately started looking for Yuuichi and Fujise.
I found them still looking for souvenirs and such at the store.
“W-What’s wrong? Why did you look at them all of a sudden?”
“N-No, I thought I had lost sight of them.”
“Well, it should be fine. I can’t see any sign of Tojoin-san interrupting them at the moment.”
Yeah, there’s still no sign of Tojoin-san coming to interrupt their date.
But, that’s strange.
Tojoin-san would have interfered with them already if we were following the original storyline.
The uncomfortable feeling I just had, where Fujise and Yuuichi took a picture with a bear-eared head accessory on.
If it was following the original story, she would have interrupted them from behind and said “Oh, it looks like the two of you are having quite some fun together.”
That’s why the picture from that time would show a scary Tojoin-san face in the background.
When the three of them get together, they get into a light shouting match, but then Fujise immediately whispers in Yuichi’s ear, “I’ll send you the picture on RINE later.”
But now, as you can see, Tojoin-san is nowhere to be seen.
In other words, the original story is already falling apart.
But why? Why hasn’t Tojoin-san come to interfere with them yet?
At this rate, the both of them will really go out with each other.
