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 69: Did I or Didn't I?
Fujise’s culinary training has come to a close.
The two bento boxes were filled with various side dishes and rice, which Fujise had prepared herself, making it a magnificent bento.
“It’s done, It’s far from what I expected, but it was far better from your first dish as well.”
“If anything, it’s a mystery as to how it even turned into dark matter in the first place.”
“Thank you so much, Tojoin-san and Rinke-chan! If it’s alright can I give these to you?”
Tojoin-san’s eyes rolled when she heard that.
“For us? Why don’t you give it to Yuuichi tomorrow.”
There were two lunch boxes available, knowing Yuuichi he’d easily be able to eat both of them.
But it seems that Fujise was planning to give these bento boxes which contain her hard work to them instead.
“I’ll do my best to make a bento box for Shigemoto-kun myself! I want to give these bentos to the people who helped me so much.”
“Well, if that’s the case, I’ll take it.”
“Thank you, Shiho-senpai.”
Rinke accepted it head on. But Tojoin accepted it while looking away, perhaps trying to hide her embarrassment somewhat.
“I don’t have one for Sei-chan now, but I’ll be sure to make one since I learned a lot from Sei-chan too!”
“Ahh, sure. I’m looking forward to it.”
Sei-chan said with a gentle smile, as if looking at her own child make her bento box.
The smile on her face was so cute, I couldn’t help but be drawn to them. And then our eyes met.
Sei-chan’s cheeks immediately turned red and looked away.
I’m also a little embarrassed about what happened earlier, but I’m also pretty sad that I’m so blatantly distracted by that.
Well, I can’t help it.
With that, Fujise’s culinary training came to an end.
That night, I was at home eating with Rinke.
As usual, Rinke made the food and it was very tasty.
“Un, It’s delicious today too!”
“Ah, thank god.”
I’ve been saying it for a while now, so I wish she would get used to it, but she still looked away in embarrassment.
Rinke was busy eating the bento box Fujise made for her instead.
“How’s the food Fujise cooked?”
“Yeah, it’s delicious. I’ve taken a couple of bites before so I kinda knew what it tasted like anyways.”
“I’m glad to hear that. Thank you for today, Rinke. I asked you for help out of the blue, and you went out of your way to help me out.”
“No, I had fun too, Both Kaori-senpai and Shiho-senpai were kind people.”
“I’m glad you guys are getting along.”
In the original, Tojoin-san and Rinke didn’t get along that well, so I was a little worried about letting them meet.
I didn’t realize how differently the story had developed when Rinke wasn’t in love with Yuuichi.
I hope they’ll continue to be friends, though I have to make sure that Rinke doesn’t fall for Yuuichi.
As I was mulling it over in my head, I finished eating Rinke’s delicious meal in silence as usual.
“Thank you for the meal, it was delicious”
“Un, keep the dishes in the water.”
“No, I’ll wash it alongside the bento box, and return it to Tojoin-san.”
“Then, let’s wash it together.” [TLN: OWO]
Neither of us wanted to concede the right to wash the dishes so we decided to do it together.
Lately, it’s always been a question of which one of us is going to wash it, and whether we’ll wash it together or I’ll wash it alone.
I would never leave her alone, I can’t have her cook for me and do all the preparations while I just sat there doing nothing.
Today, I’m doing it with her as she asked.
But since there’s nothing to talk about, I’ll just wash the dishes in silence.
I wash the dishes with a sponge and hand them to Rinke to wipe them down.
As I continued to wash the dishes, Rinke started to speak.
“Hm? What is it?”
“Did you do it… with Sei-san?”
I was looking at the dishes I was washing, but her words stopped my hand and I turned to look at Rinke next to me.
Rinke also stopped wiping the dishes and looked up to me with a slightly embarrassed face.
“S-So you kissed Sei-san?”
“W-What’s with that question all of a sudden?”
“Well, Onii–chan and Sei-san were in the next room alone for quite a while. Shiho-senpai and Tojoin-senpai were talking about it too, so I got curious.”
I don’t know what they were saying, No, if it was Fujise and Tojoin-san, they would be able to spin it into some kind of love story.
I hadn’t expected to be asked so directly by Rinke. I wonder if Rinke was interested in such things.
“Well, can’t we just keep this to ourselves?”
“Yeah, you don’t have to tell me, I was just curious.”
“Yeah, I guess.”
I don’t want to tell Rinke about how far I went with Sei-chan.
I’m sure Rinke doesn’t want to hear too much about it too. No, the fact that she asked the question means that she’s at least interested in it.
But… I probably won’t be able to give her the answer she was looking for.
We haven’t kissed yet, me and Sei-chan.
[ED: one day these transition lines will exist… I believe…]
A few hours ago, at that time.
When I was stroking Sei-chan’s head, that’s when I got the vibe.
We looked at each other so closely that our bodies touched each other, and we both fell silent.
As I gazed into Sei’s moist eyes, they slowly closed.
I got up the courage to bring my face close to hers and place my lips on hers… almost.
It was then I heard something move in the hallway.
It must have been the sound of the cooking room’s door opening, because Tojoin-san and the others arrived soon after that sound.
To be frank, that sound was almost inaudible to me, but Sei-chan reacted abnormally, probably because she has such good ears.
I could tell since I had my hand on the back of her neck, but I was really surprised.
Sei-chan instantly slipped out of my hands, her face turning red and instantly distancing herself from me.
I came back to my senses when I saw her reaction… though I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t look at Sei-chan’s face for a while.
I mean, I was really, really, REALLY CLOSE TO KISSING SEI-CHAN!
Damn, I have to admit, I wanted to do it real badly.
How could I not want to? I was kissing my beloved Sei-chan.
It was just bad timing, I guess, and location.
If we had been in the mood to kiss a little sooner, we could have done it, and if the place hadn’t been Tojoin-san’s house, we could have done it without any interruption.
What a waste.
But it was so sudden that I was surprised, and Sei-chan didn’t mind either?
I don’t know, maybe I was a little hasty since we’ve been dating for less than a month.
Kiss… huh… What if she dislikes it?
It’s just that, at that time, Sei-chan…
“SHE WAS SO GOD DAMN CUTE!”
