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 35: Once Again
“Oh, I’m sorry for interrupting you just now. What did you want to say when I went to find Tojoin-san just now?”
“Eh? A-AH…! Well.. It’s a.. Uh… Well, you know… I was just going to say that we should hurry and follow them sooner.”
“I see. I’m sorry. I just ran off without listening to you at all.”
“Nah, it’s fine. I mean, you’re here with me in the end after all.”
The fact that I’m watching the three of them having a shuraba currently means that both me and Sei-chan were here to see this beautiful illuminated place.
The illumination was like a field of flowers. So beautiful.
“Yeah, it really is.”
For a while… Me and Sei-chan just stood there admiring the beauty of the illumination silently.
But to be honest, I was actually just staring at Sei-chan’s face the whole time as she looked at the illumination.
Looking from the side, I could see Sei-chan’s face lit up by the light. It was so beautiful. I found it more worthwhile to stare at her looking at the illumination rather than actually seeing the park’s illuminations myself.
“Hm? Wh-What is it, Hisamura? Why were you staring at me all this time?”
As expected, after staring at her for a few minutes she managed to notice me and thus she shyly asked me in return.
“Fufu, sorry, I was just admiring Sei-chan.” [TLN: Ugh I want a romcom development too.] [ED: one day man, one day]
“What?! Y-You’re such a…”
Sei-chan’s face was dyed red again, but as expected, she was a little used to it by now, so she was less upset than usual.
But it was too cute to see her glancing at me once in a while whilst still trying to look at the illumination again.
“Sei-chan, can I say it again, one more time, right here?”
“Wh-What are you doing?”
We were looking at the illuminations together, but I once again turned towards Sei-chan.
Sei-chan was also nervous but she still turned towards me.
Sei-chan eyes pierced through mine.
I was so nervous that my legs were shaking.
I confessed my feelings to Sei-chan before, in the classroom right after school.
But to tell you the truth, I was only able to do that because I thought I was dreaming at that time.
I didn’t actually expect to be thrown into the world of the manga, so I assumed that I was just dreaming and so I just shouted out my love for Sei-chan.
But now… I realized… It was real and that I was actually standing right before my beloved Sei-chan.
It’s not like I was randomly shouting out my love for her now.
It’s not the same as when I was reading a manga. This is not the character, Sei Shimada. This is Sei Shimada, a real person living the life of a real girl.
This is going to be a serious confession by me. From Tsukasa Hisamura to Sei Shimada.
“Sei-chan, I love you.”
“I like the kind Sei-chan who hides her feelings for her friend and silently supports her in the background, but I don’t like the Sei-chan who hides everything she goes through and keeps it all to herself. I want to be someone who can truly support Sei-chan and make her happy.”
I was extremely embarrassed but I managed to say it straight into Sei-chan’s eyes.
Sei-chan was also looking at me with moist eyes.
“I like the Sei-chan who looks cool and dashing. I like the Sei-chan who acts shy and gets red easily. I like the Sei-chan who smiles so happily after she eats or drinks something sweet. I’ve gotten to know you a lot better than when I first confessed, and I fell even harder for you.”
“I love you Sei-chan, please go out with me!”
I got my point through to the end.
My heart’s beating so loudly right now, it feels like it’s going to jump right out of my mouth.
Sei-chan listened to my words of confession quietly, her face turning red in the process, but she never once looked away from me.
All I should do is wait for her reply.
Sei-chan had been staring into my eyes for a long time, but after a moment of shyly looking away, our gazes connected once more.
“Thank you. I’m very, very happy. Your previous confession came out of nowhere, and I guess I was just too flustered to tell you, but I was really happy then too.”
During that time. Sei-chan was so flustered she immediately ran away from me.
But that’s just because I confessed to her out of the blue, and I did think I was dreaming, so I was begging her to answer me immediately so that I could know what she thought of me before I woke up.
Did you care about what happened back then too…?
“I also had a lot of fun playing and talking with you today. When we went to the cafe. I got to interact with you in so many different ways, and I got to know more of you too. T-The da-date, this was my first time being on an actual date. It was a ton of fun.”
Sei-chan said so very shyly.
She looked away from me several times in-between, but every time she did speak, she made sure she looked me firmly in the eyes before she said a word.
“No… it’s not just that. It’s not just that having dates on it’s own is fun. It’s that being with you, Hisamura, is fun. It’s fun to go on dates with you.”
What man wouldn’t be happy to hear such a thing from the woman he loves?
My heart skips an extra beat, not only due to me being nervous, but it’s because I’m expecting it to beat even faster soon.
“I know there’s still a lot we don’t actually know about each other yet, and my feelings for Hisamura may not be as strong as you feel for me yet, but I’m not going to lie about my feelings for you anymore.”
“So that’s why… I’ll be doing my best to catch up with you.”
Sei-chan looks up at me with moist eyes and declares.
“If you’re okay with me… I’ll be in your care.”
I couldn’t breathe for a moment.
I’m not mishearing her, am I?
“R-Really? Y-You’ll go out with me?”
“Ye-Yeah… I-If you’re okay with me!”
“Because you’re Sei-chan, I’d love to go out with you.”
“Se-Seriously? S-Sei-chan is going to be my girlfriend?”
“Uuu… D-Don’t say it out loud.”
Sei-chan squirmed around and looked extremely embarrassed as she slumped down.
I’m going to go out with this cute girl, Sei-chan…
I loved you before I even came to this world, and I love you even more after I came to this world.
“I’m so happy…I’m going to die.”
“Ku… You say stuff like that too much.”
“No…I’m really REALLLLYYYYY dying to be able to go out with Sei-chan.”
I was looking up with my hands covering my face when I felt a slight tug on the hem of my jacket.
I removed my hands and looked down to see Sei-chan come a little closer to me than before. She was right in my bosom, tugging at the hem of my jacket with her fingers.
“D-Don’t say you’re going to die… You will make me happy, won’t you?”
“Let’s get married.”
“Oh, I made a mistake. Wait, no, I didn’t.”
As far as I’m concerned, I’d like to get married for real.
If you’re bold enough to say you’ll make them happy for life, you’ll definitely have to think that far ahead.
“We-Well, you know, I can’t answer that yet, But I’ll let you know how it goes.”
Sei-chan was so cute that I couldn’t help but use polite language when she responded to my spur-of-the-moment words, she’s taking them so seriously.
My girlfriend is just too cute for me!
S-Sei-chan really became my girlfriend.
I’m so happy, I’m seriously dying. Wait, no, I’m not dying.
I’ll definitely live and make Sei-chan happy.
I mean, Sei-chan grabbed a bit of the hem of my clothes, and she’s so close to me right now.
If either of us took another half step forward, our bodies would definitely hit each other.
Perhaps Sei-chan also lost track of time but she kept glancing up at me, looked down and then immediately started glancing up at me again.
I want to hug her so badly…!
“Can I, uh, hug you?”
“Eh? A-Ahh… sure.”
“P-Please excuse me.”
After getting permission, I put my trembling arms around Sei’s back and gently hugged her.
The moment she hugged me, she let out a sigh of contentment and then she, too, put her arms around my back.
I’m hugging Sei-chan right now.
It was very warm and soft.
I just want to hold her forever and ever.
But I still couldn’t muster up the courage to hug her with just enough strength to put my arms around her back.
Suddenly, Sei-chan put all her strength into the arm around my back and started hugging me tightly.
“A-Ah…Y-You hold onto me a little tighter too!”
Ah, man… too… cute…
I did as I was told and put my arms around her back and hugged her tightly.
A more lustrous sound came out… I can’t take it anymore.
“Sei-chan. I’m sorry. I got a nosebleed.”
I stopped hugging Sei-chan, covered the blood dripping from my nose with my hand, and moved away so that it wouldn’t get on her.
Sei-chan also hurried away and pulled out a tissue from her bag.
“W-Why did you suddenly get a nosebleed?”
“Sei-chan was too cute. I got a little excited.”
“Y-You’re going to have to get used to this… If not we won’t be able to go further…Wait, n-no it’s nothing.”
“Is Sei-chan trying to make me pass out like Yuuichi over there?”
“No, of course not!”
“At any rate, I need some more tissues. What you just said made me bleed even more”
“Hey, is your body really okay?”
“I’m sure it’s fine. It probably won’t kill me. There was a guy who almost died from nosebleeds but I think mine is not as bad. I’ll be fine.”
It ended on a boring tone but that’s how I got together with Sei-chan.
I know I keep saying this, but I’m so happy that I’m dying, and I truly want to make Sei-chan happy without dying.
