Yuina was surprised while having eyes wide open, as if she couldn’t believe that I had clearly told her that I hate her. I don’t know what she was trying to do, but her hands were grazing the sky with nowhere to go.
“Ha. Why are you surprised? You think I like you? What did you think I was going to say?”
“B-Because….! Rika chan and Jury said so ………”
Rika ? Jury ?….Ah, Are these the girls who spouted the strange things I heard from Asahi at lunch?
“Come to think of it, I heard they were getting excited about whether the call was a confession from me. But why didn’t they realize from our earlier exchange that there was no way that could be the case?”
Yuina, who was still puzzled and her mouth was still agape, clearly denied that such a thing was possible.
“First of all, you have Sawada and I have Koharu. There’s no way I’m going to confess to you when I have a girlfriend.”
“Yes but…I mean…it can happen…!!”
“I’m telling you it’s impossible…Haa…..I’m beyond angry, I’m disgusted.”
“You’re making a fool out of me again…!!!”
“Shut up, Don’t throw tantrums every time. Listen, I call you up today is not a confession or anything. It’s because I have something I need to tell you.”
I was annoyed by all the yapping and screaming, so I glared at her to shut her up and proceeded with my story.
“This is what Sawada asked me to do, to get you to admit guilt for what you tried to do to Koharu and promise not to do it again. But after talking to you earlier, I realized that you still seem to think that Koharu should be treated badly. If you can’t promise me today, then I’ll have to be honest and admit that I have an idea.”
I felt I had to make her understand even more strongly by her attitude toward Koharu just now. In the worst case scenario, I might have to leave it to Isuzu san.
“And second. To completely end our relationship, our childhood friendship. I’m convinced that you are too attached to Saeki Ryoma. You have to correct that. Underst—?”
“Ha?!? There’s no way I’m going to say yes, there is no way I would understand when you say that out of the blue!!! That’s enough!”
I tried to speak in as gentle a voice as possible to discuss the issue constructively, but I was interrupted.
What’s with [enough]? that’s my line.
“I know that’s why I’m making time to talk to you one by one like this. Just let me talk, I can’t talk if I’m stuck with you.”
“What did you say?”
“C-Calm down, Yuina!”
Sawada restrained Yuina, who was about to go berserk, so I ignored her and went on with my story.
“One thing I said earlier. I can’t tolerate the malice directed at Koharu and that you might someday hurt someone else. Listen, You know, getting all emotional and getting everyone around you involved isn’t going to get you the results you want. Don’t drag people into your stupid fantasy.”
“Haa !? It’s not like I want you to get involved this time !! There’s not a single thing wrong with me !!! And I’m not delusional. Me and Ryouma are—-”
“No, you are wrong. Besides, this time nothing happened because Sawada stopped it beforehand…..I mean, do you know who is here right now and you are trying to tell me that? You don’t seem to understand that I’m telling you to stop trying to talk like that and not think about what’s going on around you. Hey Sawada ?”
When I interrupted what she was about to say and mentioned Sawada’s name, he finally seemed to realize what she was about to say.
“Ah, No, you’re wrong Kenji kun !! I just wanted to say that I’m not in love with him, but we are childhood friends…It’s not that !!”
She is desperately trying to make excuses to Kenji, but on the contrary, it is as if she is saying she really means it.
“This is what happens when you don’t think ahead. Do you understand? Promise me you won’t do that again. Not just us, but everyone else.”
I remind Yuina, who turns around at the sound of my voice, that she created this situation of her own lack of thinking.
“O-Okay…..I will never do anything like that again…….”
She responded in a frustrated, apologetic manner.
She seemed to have indeed responded.
“Okay, I’m glad you understand. So let’s get on with the second part. Let’s talk about our relationship.”
Yes, this is the main issue.
“I want to end my relationship with you as a childhood friend. I told you this on the rooftop that day. And I thought we ended our relationship there.”
“Yes. I remember what you said to me that day. I admit that I’m a little bit in the wrong, but that’s not going to convince me to stop being your childhood friend!”
That’s it, huh?
“I knew it….Then let’s retrace our steps and recap what we’ve been up to.”
“What a pain in the ass, what’s the point of that!”
“There is a point.”
If you don’t realize it yourself, you won’t be able to move on either.
Yuina looked like she wanted to say something, but she didn’t say anything to my seriousness.
“Asahi. Tell us if we tell you something that isn’t true.”
I asked Asahi, who was watching us closely, to come closer to me and Yuina.
“Understand. Well, I was on Ryouma’s side, so I don’t know what Yuina thinks, but I remember what the girls used to talk about, so I’ll just say it there.”
I take a deep breath and take a step forward.
Yuina and Sawada looked surprised at my change of facial expression.
While grasping Yuina’s hand with both of mine, I began to talk
“Let’s settle up. Let’s think about all the fun and cruel days we’ve spent together.”
(TL/N : Wow, what a climax, I bet the next chap will be more….What should I say…[satisfying]?)
