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 50: Sei-chan Jealous.
“Shimada-san, you can’t afford to be so complacent.”
Tojoin-san told me that when she came to cheer Shigemoto on.
“W-What is it Tojoin-san?”
“My, do you not know? Hisamura will become very popular after this match.”
“I-I guess so.”
It was kinda my fault for supporting and firing up Hisamura, but I didn’t expect him to be so active that he would attract so much attention from others.
“Those bitches who just raised their voice seem to be going for Hisamura-kun too.”
“Calling them bitches is a bit mean.”
“A woman who takes another woman’s man is a bitch.”
“Tojoin-san, do you know that, um, Me and Hisamura are dating?”
I asked her in a small voice, afraid that the people around us might hear what we were talking about.
Neither I nor Hisamura should have told her about that.
“Of course I know. Anybody can tell just by looking at you guys.”
“A-Anyone? D-Does that mean that the people in class know too?”
“No, I don’t think anyone in your class knows. After all, you’ve been using me as a front to hold hands and flirt secretly.”
“EH?! W-Why do you know that?!”
“Well, I could tell since you were right in front of me, but Yuuichi probably doesn’t know a thing.”
I didn’t think that Tojoin-san would know about us holding hands as well…
“Curses… To-Tojoin-san, please don’t tell anyone that we’re dating…”
“Why not? If I were in your position. I would make a huge announcement saying that Yuuichi and I are dating.”
“W-Well it’s already known that you like Shigemoto though!”
“Well, if I was in your situation I would stick close to Hisamura-kun, so not only would his family know about me, but so would everyone else.”
“Those bitches earlier were easy to understand, but it’s not like there aren’t any women aiming for Hisamura in the dark. I would show him off to the extent that the entire world would know that he is mine.”
“We-Well… That’s still…”
Well, if I did do that, the other girls would definitely stop going for Hisamura.
But I couldn’t do something so embarrassing.
As we were talking, a pang sound came from where the game was being played, and cheers went up at the same time as that.
I looked over there and saw that Hisamura had gotten a hit and was running through first base.
“I’m not sure what to say. There may be other girls out there who are looking at him with a passionate gaze too.”
Indeed, the way the girls in the class looked at Hisamura now had changed.
I don’t think all the eyes that are looking at Hisamura are vying for him, but thinking about the few that are is making me sick.
But well… Hisamura, who stayed on first base, turned to look at me.
He smiled lightly, clenched his fist and did a small guts pose to me.
I was thrilled by the gesture, and I was glad that it was directed only at me, which made my earlier discomfort disappear.
In response to his gesture, I did a small wave.
This time, he didn’t hold his chest in pain but smiled naturally. Seeing that, I couldn’t help but smile as well.
“Y’all two are so close, I feel like an idiot for worrying about you.”
Tojoin, who was watching the current exchange between us said so with a sigh.
“But still, I’m certain that people who don’t know about the fact that you guys are dating will appear and try to seduce Hisamura-kun.”
“Ku… I-I know that.”
“All right then. Then I guess I’ll just have to go about my business.”
Tojoin-san said, stepping forward and shouting loudly.
“YUUICHI! MAKE SURE YOU HIT IT!”
The next batter after Hisamura was Shigemoto.
When Tojoin-san shouted this out to Shigemoto before entering the batter’s box, Shigemoto smiled and raised his fist in the air, “Oh!” he shouted.
“Shigemoto-kun! Good luck!”
Shiho also cheered, shouting loudly, something she rarely did, as if she did not want to lose him.
Shigemoto responded to that as well, with a “Thank you!”.
Shigemoto’s motivation seemed to have increased, but so did the motivation of his enemies.
As for the reason for the rise, I’m pretty sure it’s jealousy.
The pitcher throws with all his might, more so than when he was throwing it to Hisamura.
He is a pitcher from the baseball team, so I’m pretty sure it will be a decent pitch.
However, the batter was a terrible matchup with him.
The sound was even louder than when Hisamura had hit it, and the ball flew through the air.
It went straight over the head of the field and disappeared out of sight.
Instantly, a loud cheer echoed through the schoolyard.
“That’s my Yuuichi! That was an easy home run!”
“Shigemoto, you’re amazing!”
Tojoin-san and Shiho said exicitely as if they were Shigemoto’s long term fans.
The girls from the same class and other classes who had seen what had just happened were also cheering for him. [TLN: I’m feeling extremely bad for the pitcher, Don’t worry, you’ll get ’em next time.] [ED: There’s always next time] [PR:your sacrifice will not be forgotten pitcher-san…]
The girls who were talking about targeting Hisamura earlier also had many more sparkles in their eyes now than when Hisamura had gotten a hit.
Surely a home run is much more impressive than a regular hit, and we know that Shigemoto is more popular than Hisamura.
Rather than Hisamura being targeted, it would be safer for my sanctuary if Shigemoto stood out and attracted the attention of the girls instead.
“I don’t like it… My Hisamura is no pushover either.”[PR:mah heart!]
I said in a small murmur, as my expression stiffened.
