I really wish you would stop.
Why are you raising the bar so high from the very beginning? Is this some new kind of bullying?
I’m getting an enthusiastic welcome right now.
The stares are hurting me. It’s not a sore spot. It’s piercing.
Why did the teacher say that? ……
That sounded like I’m a good looking guy.
I’m a non-motivated guy whose age = never had a girlfriend before.
No wonder they reacted that way. ……
The reaction of my classmates when they saw me coming in was indescribable.
I want to go home.
“What’s the matter, new student? Are you nervous?”
Whose fault is it that I’m in this mess?
The first day at the new school, I can’t say such a thing to the teacher.
“I see. You can rest assured. From my point of view, you are well within the range of what I would call a good-looking man.”
“Is that a compliment?”
“Ah yes. Yes, of course.”
I have no idea what to say to reassure myself at all.
“Well then, new student. Introduce yourself.”
I turned a resentful glance at my new homeroom teacher, Kirihara-sensei, and she chuckled in response.
This person is definitely having a good time. She’s harassing me because I was a little later than the prescribed time,…….
“………… Ito Arase.”
I sighed in resignation and introduced myself to the class without much effort.
At that time, I heard a rattling sound of a desk moving from the seat right in front of me.
I looked in the direction of the sound and my face twisted up.
I think my face was so twisted that even I could tell. My face twitched excessively
I even almost made a funny voice.
The female student stared at me with an expression as if she was biting down on a bitter bug.
—-Why are you here?
That’s exactly what she must have been thinking.
The person who was there was the one I saved from the traffic accident yesterday. And she was the one who slapped me hard.
……The world is a small place. And God has no mercy.
The girl was looking at me like I was an arrow about to be shot.
A drop of sweat ran down my cheek.
However, the teacher who saw the whole thing muttered as if she had guessed something.
“What is it, Asagiri? Are you already acquainted with the new student?”
“No, I don’t. I don’t know such a pervert.”
The moment a female student called Asagiri said that, the surrounding people began to murmur.
“That bastard …….”
This is the worst. On the first day at the new school, I was treated like a pervert.
It’s not even close to being bad publicity.
“Hmmm. Smells like a romantic comedy.”
What is this guy talking about?
I was so nervous that I didn’t even notice that Kiritani-sensei was a teacher. What do you mean, “smells like a romantic comedy”?
I had a feeling from the moment I met her in the staff room today that she’s not in her right mind.
“Very interesting indeed.”
The way she mutters, like some professor, is also frustratingly appropriate.
But there is nothing funny about it.
And if possible, I would like you to quiet that mad dog that is about to go on a rampage at any moment.
“Well, that brings us to our new student, Ito-kun. He’s got a family situation. He’s a hard worker. Please be nice to him.”
The teacher’s words were met with sparse applause from classmates.
As usual, the female student called Asagiri threw icy stares at me.
“Just as well then. Let’s change seats with the new students.”
“Sensei. The new semester just started though?”
One of the male students raised his voice. The date is still April 11. It was only the beginning of the second school year. Surely it’s not too early to change seats?
“Shut up, Sasaoka! I’ll make you stay in school.”
The boy called Sasaoka was silenced without saying a word.
The reason for this is that it’s so unreasonable.
“Sasaoka. Calm down a little. I did not say that without thinking. At the moment, the seats are decided by the order of the roster, right? That’s no fun.”
I don’t know what’s not fun, but I thought it’s useless to make a comment.
By the way, I’ve been standing next to the teacher at the podium the whole time. I don’t care, I just want to sit down as soon as possible.
“You don’t get enough moisture with boys on both sides of you, do you? That’s what I mean.”
“I see! That’s how it is, isn’t it? That’s right!”
I had no idea how it happened, but Sasaoka was delighted.
“Then, let’s draw lots.”
Yes, yes, I knew that anyway. I knew this would happen.
I’m going to get a hole because I’m being watched so much. I feel an unusual pressure from my right neighbor.
I feel like nothing good has happened since I came …… No, is it from before? Anyway, …… Sensei! I’d like to change seats.
Somehow, the wish that I should have chanted in my mind was picked up. And it was rejected.
And the teacher laughed more and more happily.
I bet that teacher set this up, didn’t she? What’s that smell of a romantic comedy? What a joke.
“After all, ………… it’s a guy in front of me and next to me. ……”
And from behind, a sad murmur could be heard.
……Don’t worry, Sasaoka-kun.
Sasaoka, who was seated behind me, was at the very back of the window row. It is the No. 1 seat that everyone longs to be in.
Despite this, he is sad.
The student to his right was, after all, a boy.
I can’t help but feel that this was all a set-up.
Putting aside the sad Sasaoka-kun, I want to do something about the stares from the side for now.
I’m too lazy to talk to her, but please don’t keep staring at me like this.
“……You know what? Can you please stop staring at me?”
“How can you say such a thing after molesting me?”
“I-I’m not. It was really a misunderstanding. ……”
“What misunderstanding? You grabbed me by the arm and hugged me out of the blue.”
“I was trying to save you from an accident.”
“I heard that yesterday. Why don’t you come up with a better excuse?”
“It’s true. ……”
It’s imposibble. It’s as if she won’t listen to me. No matter how I try, I can’t seem to clear up the misunderstanding.
The truth is, I saw the future of the accident there? Impossible, absolutely unbelievable.
She would think I was a crazy person.
“I’m not going to let you get away with that one shot, anyway. If you know what I mean, then don’t talk to me!”
Total rejection. Absolutely no way to get out of this.
It’s a bit distressing to be suddenly hated from
the very first day of my new job, but it’s okay.
I’m used to being alone anyway.
If I don’t do anything from here, maybe it won’t do that much harm.
“─ ─ Well then, this concludes homeroom. Oh, about math for first period, Ito doesn’t seem to have the textbook yet, so please ask Asagiri next door to show it to you.”
The teacher was so amazed that she couldn’t even speak. The teacher laughed pleasantly when she saw us like that.
The teacher then left the classroom after making some other announcements.
The first time I looked at Asagiri’s reaction, she looked blatantly displeased.
Then, as soon as our gazes meet, she looks away, sniffs, and then leaves her seat.
I am worried about the future. What an irony that I, who know what the future holds, would say such a thing.
“The morning has been a disaster. Did you do something strange to have Asagiri staring at you like that?”
Exhausted from the very beginning, I was approached cheerfully from behind.
