“Yes, okay ! That concludes today’s recording. Thank you for your hard work~”
[ [Thank you very much～] ]
The sound director gave the OK and the recording of the first episode ended without incident.
I said goodbye to my co-stars and the staff and left the studio.
“Phew, I’m tired…..”
I checked my phone, which I had taken out of my pocket, and saw that it was already 4:00 in the evening.
It began at 10:00 a.m., so even without the lunch break, I had been working for five hours.
Today was the first episode, so it’s going to take a while.
Even so…..I opened Line.
No matter how many times I checked, the name of the account at the top of my friends list was, [Himemiya Shiori].
She’s not only active as a voice actress, but recently she has been appearing on TV programs and has even released a photo book–she’s truly an idol voice actress.
And that Shiorin was with me….. No, seriously…….
Hmm, what is it?
I heard footsteps behind me and turned around–
“Ryoga, attend ! Ryoga, wait !”
“Whoa…..is that you, Elena?”
There was a beautiful silver-haired girl with her hands on her knees, panting and staring at me.
“Haa……haa…., why are you going ahead of me !”
“No, I thought it would be a nuisance.”
“Huh? What nuisance? Well, you’ll have to wait for me next time. Understood?”
Ryoga nodded with an unaccountable face.
“Hey, I’m hungry～. Let’s eat somewhere.”
“Yeah, how about Saize?”
“That sounds good ! I accept it.”
After a 10-minute walk, we arrived at Saizeriya in front of the station, then Elena and I sat down at a table for four.
“How was it, Ryoga? About your performance.”
“Well, I’d give it a 70. It’s been a long time since I had been on site, and I arrived at the last minute, so maybe I was a bit rushed. But Seki san seemed to have told the staff about it, and I think it went pretty smoothly……”
Seki san is my manager.
But how did he know I was going to be there at the last minute when he didn’t even contact me?
Elena opened her mouth as if she could see right through my thoughts.
“Let me tell you, I told Seki san, okay?”
“Ah, I see. Thank you, Elena.”
”H-hmph ! You really can’t be helped, Ryoga. I’m your childhood friend, and you’re no good without me. Without me, your childhood friend, you know !”
Elena’s face suddenly turns red as she starts talking.
….It’s not like you have to say ‘childhood friend’ twice, you know?
“So, why were you late? It’s unusual for you to arrive at the last minute, Ryoga.”
“I got into a bit of trouble on the way there. That’s why it took so long.”
“What kind of trouble?”
“Someone was getting tangled up with a group of about four thugs on the side of the road. So I got into fights with them, and all that sort of thing.”
“I felt sorry for those thugs, to think that they would run into you of all people, Ryoga. A one-shot KO from you is something !”
“It’s not a one-shot, it’s aikido. And KOs is for boxing.”
“Right. That’s what I meant !”
Yes, I was learning aikido until I entered a training school in the first grade of middle school.
I was invited by a friend from elementary school to join his dojo, where I practiced for three years.
I had a sense that I was improving, but I don’t know how strong I was because there were no competitions at the dojo I attended.
When I told him that I was quitting the dojo, I was happy to hear the master, who rarely praised people, say, [You have a special talent].
Well, I guess he was just flattering me…….
It was the highest compliment I could have received at the time.
“By the way, the person that you saved was a guy, right?”
“No. a woma–“
As I was about to say that, a shiver ran down my spine.
“Hmm. A woman? I see. That’s good to hear. I bet you had a lot of fun on the phone with her, didn’t you?”
Elena in front of me had the same smile as before, but I wonder why. I can’t stop shaking……
“N-no, I was in a hurry–“
“Have you exchanged contact information?”
What a scary tone of voice.
I realized that my mouth was moving on its own.
It’s not like I’ve done anything wrong…..no, in the first place, there’s no way that Shiorin would contact a loner like me.
“So, you didn’t exchange? Hmm.”
Saying that, the beautiful silver-haired girl returns to her usual mood.
W-what was that……?
“Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go, Milanese spaghetti with meat sauce and demi-glace hamburg steak.”
The waitress puts the order on the table.
“Wow～, looks delicious. Let’s eat it quickly !”
With her legs flapping, Elena was in a different mood than before.
I wonder if all women are like this……
The hamburg steak is delicious.
The demi-glace sauce soaks into the hamburg. giving it a consistent taste.
Spaghetti is shoved into my mouth.
“T-this spaghetti is delicious, so I ‘ll let you taste it….”
Nom nom nom
“W-what are you–“
Nom nom nom
“Hey, people are looking at us–“
“I’ll give you another bite !”
Elena shoves the next portion of spaghetti into my mouth the moment I swallow it.
From the side, it was a scene of a gloomy person being fed spaghetti by a super beautiful girl.
Because of this, I’m getting a lot of attention from the people around me.
Damn, what is this…….
Elena is probably still angry that I arrived at the last minute.
Nom nom nom gulp
In the end, I ate all of Elena’s spaghetti.
There was no longer any taste in it.
“Ahaha, it’s all gone. My spaghetti……”
Elena looked at me as if she wanted to tell me something.
She must be hungry, because she’s not eating any of the food she’s been feeding me.
“Here, I’ll give you my hamburg.”
I offer her a plate of hamburg steak, but she shakes her head.
“Feed it to me.”
“Come on, hurry up !”
Elena closed her eyes and half opened her mouth like a baby chick being fed by its parents.
Why should I…….
“Hey, you can eat on your own. I’m sorry about this morning, okay?”
Elena stays still with her mouth open.
She won’t listen to me when it comes to this.
“Hey, isn’t her boyfriend a jerk?”
“Wow, she’s so cute～”
The high school girls at a nearby table are pointing at us and whispering.
Why do they feel like it’s my fault……
Damn, do we have to do it…..?
Nom nom nom nom
The way she eats the hamburg steak with her mouth full of it is also cute.
I continued to mindlessly feed Elena the hamburg steak, and finally the plate was empty.
M-my mentality is already at its limit…….
“Fuu, It was delicious. Let’s come back again, Ryoga !”
“…..If I feel like it.”
I swore to myself that I would never go to Saize.
