“Hey, Hazuki san. Are you okay?”
This is the infirmary.
I was holding the unconscious Hazuki san in my arms, laying her down on the infirmary bed, and sitting by her side.
I looked at Hazuki san who was lying down and wondered what to do.
“Uhehe…… Not here…….”
The beautiful black-haired girl was mumbling in her sleep with a very smirky face.
It’s a face that you can’t even imagine from the usual Hazuki san.
It can’t even be shown to the other classmates.
Seriously, what the hell happened……?
Hazuki san woke up when I was trembling inwardly at the blunder I had made.
“Nng…. Hm, this is…….”
“Ah, Hazuki san ! You woke up–“
As soon as I involuntarily fell forward and brought my face close to hers, Hazuki san fainted and collapsed on the bed.
Eh, you’re kidding me, right……?
I came here dressed as I was from the rooftop, so now I’m without my mask and glasses.
No way, my real face was that ugly…….
No, no, it hasn’t been decided yet.
As expected, it’s not a face that’s so disgusting that you’ll faint just by looking at it……right?
It’s sad that I can’t say for sure.
“Ah, Hazuki sa–“
…….Can I cry?
Hazuki Rinka side
I woke up and found myself in the infirmary.
I woke up and suddenly looked to the side to see Nekura kun, the usual one I see in the classroom・・・・looking at me with a worried expression.
Hm, I feel like he had a bare face just now……
No, it’s just my imagination.
“I-I’m sorry about that. To take me to the infirmary.”
“N-no ! I’m sorry too…….”
Oh, yeah, I should apologize about the rooftop–
[ [U-um !] ]
Our voices are in sync. It’s kind of funny.
“Fufu, Nekura kun, you go first.”
“I-I understand. Um, I’m really sorry about the rooftop. I don’t remember anything there……”
“No, it’s my fault ! I’m sorry for interrupting your practice.”
He looks stunned.
I see, he thought that since he had no memory of the rooftop, I had not yet discovered his true identity.
[ […….] ]
An awkward silence passes between us.
I can’t help but say it.
“You’re Ryoga sama, aren’t you?”
“The thing on the rooftop was practicing the script for Danpuri, am I right?”
He looked down for a while, but he raised his head as if he had made up his mind.
“Yes, I’m Ryoga.”
“I see…… I knew it was you.”
It’s a strange feeling. A refreshing feeling, as if something that had been stuck in my chest for a long time had been lifted.
“Hazuki san, please promise me one thing.”
“What is it?”
“Don’t ever tell anyone about what I said on the rooftop. It’s okay to say that I’m Ryoga, so that’s it. I’m begging you…..please.”
With that, he got up from his chair and bowed deeply.
“I-I won’t say it. I will never tell them. Of course I won’t tell them that you are Ryoga sama. So just keep your head up, okay?”
“Thank you very much.”
Then, a question arose in my mind.
Wouldn’t it be a bad idea to reveal that you’re a Ryoga?
“Why did you go that far to not want them to know about Danpuri?”
“Of course, I don’t want them to know that I am Ryoga either. But before that, voice actors are obliged to maintain confidentiality.”
I see. So that’s how it is.
I finally understood.
“You mean you don’t want a third party to find out about the contents of the Danpuri before it airs?”
“Yes. If it gets out, it will cause trouble not only for me, but also for the other actors, the production company, and the people at the office. If I’m not careful, it could cause damage. So, please don’t ever reveal it. Please !”
At that moment, I felt as if I understood who Nekura kun was.
A kind person who cares more about the people around him than himself.
He’s that kind of person.
“I also have something I need to apologize to you for.”
“From Hazuki san?”
“Yeah. There was a time when Nekura kun left the classroom in a hurry yesterday morning, right? At that time, I saw a line between you and a girl named Elena.”
“Ah, that’s why….”
“That’s how I found out you were practicing on the rooftop. I’m such a jerk. I’m so sorry.”
I bowed to him on the bed, too.
I don’t know if he will forgive me for apologizing, but I have no choice.
That’s what I did.
“Then I guess we’re even.”
I raised my lowered head at the unexpected words.
“I forgive you, Hazuki san, and you don’t tell them that I’m Ryoga That’s a win-win What do you think?”
He is smiling. (I can’t quite make out his expression through the mask.)
Even though it’s all my fault…
It’s not fair.
“Is it not good?”
“No, one more please.”
I was greedy and asked for one more thing.
“Eh, one more?”
“Yes. I want you….to be friends with me, Hazuki Rinka.”
“Is it…a no?”
“N-no. Please by all means !”
“Fufu. You’re fumbling.”
I took my phone out of my pocket and exchanged a line ID with Nekura kun.
From friends first, right? And then, on the way…..fufufu.
Thus, I became friends with Nekura kun.
