Episode 27 – 5 Seconds Before Kisaki’s Punishment (Part 2) [Rika Side]



[Stop it already !]

It was so loud that the sound cracked. She was breathing hard, like a hungry beast.

It was probably because I had enumerated all the information about Kisaki one after another. There was plenty of information that even Masatoshi could not know. Just saying it was superb.

“Why? I was just telling the truth. Just as I called you a slut and a whore.”

[That’s not a fact, that’s just slander ! I’m an innocent woman.]

“You’ve had sex with over three digits of unspecified men.”

[Huh? So what? What does it matter how many men I’ve had?]

“The number of men is not important at this point. The problem lies in the fact that the slut stepped on Masatoshi’s love path.”

Hahaha, Kisaki’s high laughter never ceases.

[That guy is still holding on, huh. One hundredth. Convert it into numbers.

“It’s not about numbers !”

I slammed the desk. The phone vibrated.

“Masatoshi is an irreplaceable human being. Unlike you, who sometimes give up your body in exchange for money and are probably thought of as nothing more than an outlet for ill feelings.”

I let out a sigh of disdain.

I finally said it. It was a fact that I would have liked to smack her in the face with, but there was no point in regretting it.


“Silent? I will not allow you to exercise your right to remain silent. This is not an interrogation room. This call is more of a confessional.”

[You’re disgusting. I can’t believe you’re the same person. I don’t understand what’s driving you.]

“I’m going to give it right back to you.”

[……..I’m not going to apologize. I don’t want to apologize. I don’t want to apologize to Nagai kun or to you. If I bow down, I will lose.]

Heh, so this is how it comes.

I was thinking that if you were going to apologize, even a little, I might be willing to forgive you a little. I thought that Masatoshi wouldn’t want that.

But this girl is something else after all.

She must be sanctioned. This rotten bastard who beats people up and knows no pain must be given the other cheek.

I have crossed the line of what should be done.

I must do it.

Even if this is my war fight.

“I know that if I go on and on and on, it will not be over. I understand perfectly. You’re an ignorant idiot.”

[Wha !?]

“Don’t get angry. I’m a kind person, so I’m going to give you an ultimatum. A genuine last chance.”

I had already decided what I was going to say.

“You must come to school within two hours from now. The gates will be closing soon. Even so, you must force your way inside. Then you can go to any empty classroom—“

I specified an empty classroom. It was where Masatoshi and I had run away on the day of the school festival.

It’s extremely unpleasant to have her to go inside, but I want to end this now.

[Do you really think I’m going to go?]

“If you don’t go, your safety will……”

[Are you threatening me?]

“I don’t intend to. I hope you are wise. If you want to scream out loud that you are nothing but a stupid piece of human waste, maybe it would be wise to choose not to come.”

[Every word of this infuriates me ! Don’t you ever get involved with me again !]

“I wish I could–“

The phone went dead. The look of anger on her face was stuck in my head.

If the call had gone on, I would have gone off on one hell of a tirade. I would have been caught in the broadcast code.

All I have to do is send the scraps to a junkyard.

In the case of Kisaki Saki, there is still a use for her. I would abuse her as much as possible, and when I was done with her, I would toss her out with the garbage. I had long since lost my cool.

The ride from my house to the empty classroom was smooth. It was a hassle to change back into my school uniform. I would have spared no effort to meet that woman.

Would Kisaki Saki come?

To put it bluntly, it was a 50-50 chance. I repeated a few words that would make her nervous. I honestly doubt that it would work on that woman, who is easily heated and easily cooled.

Sure enough, there was no one in the classroom. I sat silently and waited. After imagining the woman in tatters in dozens of different ways, there was a knock at the door.

“Come in.”

“Excuse me.”

It was not Kisaki’s voice. I stood up and took in the whole scene.

“Who are you?”

“Oops, you don’t remember. It’s a shame. I’ve always been curious about you.”

The man has a strange, nasally way of speaking. I don’t like it. I feel the same discomfort as with Kisaki.

“Kisaragi Hikaru, I’m Kisaki’s real boyfriend.”

“I recommend you keep your cool only in front of your precious, precious girlfriend.”

“I can’t help it. I don’t hate you, Kamisato san.”

“That’s enough. Your cold attitude and this farce.”

Kisaragi, who was smiling, quickly turned serious.

“I called Kisaki Saki. Then why did you come?”

“She asked me to come.”

“What was the reason?”

“I’m not going to meet a crazy woman who is searching for all my information, she said. If that’s the case, it’s a terrible thing. She’s sacrificing your precious boyfriend to a crazy woman.”

He was talking in a playful way, but it was only a facade.

“Do you really like Kisaki?”

“I’m not answering that.”

“The more I look into it, the more I realize that Kisaki is not a nice woman.How can someone like you be with her?”

“Because Saki is a poor soul, that’s why.”

What kind of nonsense is this. I’m pretty used to it.

“Poor soul? What do you mean?”

“Heh, you react the same way as Masatoshi.”

“I’m like Masatoshi after all.”

“…I can’t beat you.”

Kisaragi shrugs his shoulders and doesn’t have the energy to laugh.

“The reason why I feel sorry for her is because of her upbringing. And she wants to be accepted by her overbearing mother. This is a rare lack of personality in recent years. She’s smart, but simple-minded.”

“You either love her or you hate her.”

“I told you, I feel sorry for her.”


I looked at him closely and saw that he had a faraway look in his eyes. He walked a little and looked toward the curtains.

“I wanted to be Kisaki’s father figure. I don’t see many children that are twisted. Just by being an ally and being there for her, you get something that other kids don’t have.”

“You’re a piece of trash too, aren’t you?”

When I said that, Kisaragi snorted and laughed.

“Did I say something strange?”

“No, I just think we’re all four of us, you and me, are all trashy, twisted freaks.”

“Twisted freaks?”

“Yeahh. Kisaki–that girl, is seeking for a piece of love and finding fake love from the illusions that men show her. I find my purpose in life in pretending to be an ally to a distorted child. Nagai kun after shifting the blame for his own unfortunate situation to the outside world, he is content to be spoiled and corrupted by you. And you–you know no other way to live than for Nagai kun, and you can be ruthless by any means necessary in the name of your love for him. It’s as if we are irredeemable.”

Kisaragi is not an ordinary man.

I can feel his strength.


“Don’t think you understand.”

“I knew you would say that.”

“Then, one last thing.”

“Is there more?”

Kisaki will be destroyed soon. You can’t do anything about it. I’ve finally come to my senses after being hit with your overbearing emotions.”


I tried to remain calm, but I couldn’t stop the corners of my mouth from turning up.

“Right, this is how Kisaki loses her only ally.”

When Kisaragi looked back, he also had a devilish smile on his face.
