[–Hold me♡ More♡ It’s a secret〜♪]
In a karaoke room.
The room was filled with me, Yanagi Erika, Elena, and Nanahoshi san.
……Well, there are a lot of things I want to say, but let’s leave it at that for the moment.
The reason why we are here for karaoke is because after that we got a lot of attention from people around us at the cafe, so we had to move to a new place right away.
Of course, I only got to eat a couple of slices of parfait with ice cream and mango on the top.
Sigh, my DX mango parfait…….
……W-well. Let’s leave it at that.
I turn my gaze to Nanahoshi san who’s sitting across the table.
[Sweet and sour taste of love〜! I want to taste it with you〜–]
I feel a warm feeling when I see Nanahoshi san singing happily with a microphone in her hand.
Also, this orange juice is delicious…….
“H-hey, Ryoga. What do you want me to sing next?”
The sight of Elena in her school uniform staring up at me with sky blue eyes at a distance where we could almost touch each other when I turned to my right.
I mean, it’s kind of close……
“….R-right. Like [Snow White].”
[Snow White] is a character image song (kyara-song) of the heroine Elena plays in the first season of the [Ore Machi] anime.
Well, it depends on Elena’s mood, and there’s no way she’s going to sing it at a place like this–
“Yes. I put it in.”
I wonder if it’s okay for me to choose the songs so easily, since there are only four of us and only two hours to play, and there aren’t that many songs.
Well, as far as I’m concerned, I’m grateful.
“S-Senpai ! Do you want some juice?”
This time, Yanagi Erika offers me a glass of juice from the left side.
I mean, this one is also very close…….
The distance is like that of a cabaret club or something like that. I don’t know, I mean I’ve never been there.
Or rather, I’m usually a loner, so the fact that there were four of us at the karaoke bar was an impossible situation for me.
And all three of them are beautiful girls, seriously……
I said that and drank the juice that was given to me.
Gulp, gulp, gulp.
“Hey, wait a minute ! Isn’t that what you just drank?:
Eh, w-what do you mean?
When I turned to the left while choking, there was Yanagi Erika with a slightly blushed face and a mischievous expression on her face.
“Ah, m-my mistake〜. Teehee♪”
If what Erika says is correct, that’s what that means…..right?
Even though my mind can’t catch up, my brain is completely short-circuited.
“Look, Shijou senpai, it’s already started, you know?”
“Damn it, Yanagi Erika……. Y-you’d better remember that !”
Saying that, Elena starts singing a character song from Ore Machi
Oh, this is bruning…….
As I listened to Elena’s voice singing the character’s wavering heart in a fragile melody, I realized that in no time at all, it was in a C melody.
[……..I’ll never forget that I met you〜]
Elena sings the last verse, and the background screen fades out.
Clap clap clap
“Wow, I knew it, Elena chan, you’re amazing !”
“I’m so frustrated, but you’re good at it…….”
Erika claps her hands and drinks her juice with a slightly unsatisfied expression on her face.
Well, it’s as expected when you sing with this level of perfection…….
“How was my singing? Ryoga.”
“–Oh, it was great.”
“Fufu, wel, it’s obvious. ……I’ll play it for you again some other time, just the two of us.”
Elena smiled and whispered into my ear.
I struck a gut-pose in my heart and looked at the screen, where a string of [98.6 points] was displayed.
Well, I guess it’s partly because it’s her own song, but still, this is great from the first shot. ….
“Congratulations, Elena chan !”
“Thank you, Meguri-chan. Meguri-chan too, that song you just sang was really good.”
“T-that’s not true~ I only got 93 points…… (Oh, I can’t say I can’t sing in front of Ryoga sama…)”
Nanahoshi san is smiling a little bitterly as she says so.
I mean, hey, isn’t that kind of a high?
It’s true that she was given singing training as part of her voice lessons at the training school, but to be honest, acting and singing as a voice actor require very different things, so there is no such thing as being a good actor and being able to sing as well.
Well, it’s common for voice actors these days to be able to sing and dance, so maybe that’s just the way it is……
“Here you go, senpai.”
“Oh, thank you.”
I received the microphone from Erika and turned to the TV screen and focused my attention on it.
My motto is to concentrate on the task at hand, no matter what it is. I don’t want to cut corners just because it’s karaoke.
The intro to the song starts playing.
Well, let’s do it—
[Don’t look back, just as it was that day〜]
I finish the song and put the microphone on the table.
Clap clap clap
“You were really good, Senpai !”
Nanahoshi san looks at me as she nods her head in agreement to what Yanagi Erika says.
I-it’s kind of embarrassing……
“You’re in good shape today, Ryoga.”
“Yeah. Well, you were amazing too.”
Then I looked at the score on the screen and saw that it read [95.8 points].
Yes, not bad at all.
“Then, I’m going next. Phew〜”
Erika then picked up the microphone I had placed in her hand and let out a breath.
“Fufu, let’s see what you can do.”
“Wha, I-I won’t lose to Shijou senpai !”
Elena teases Yanagi Erika with a relaxed expression.
Why such childish provocations…..?
I mean, why are these two not getting along?
Even though they just met, it’s really a mystery.
[—I want to shoot your heart out〜♪]
[ [ [….] ] ]
“H-how did you like it?”
When I suddenly looked around, Elena and Nanahoshi san were also surprised with their eyes wide open.
No, well, if you say it’s because she’s a voice actor, that’s all there is to it, but this is amazing for a first year newcomer.
“A-are you really a newbie…..?”
Ah, come to think of it, she didn’t say that.
“Ah, I forgot to say, [Nice to meet you, I’m Yanagi Erika from Aono enterprises・・・・・・・・・・・ I’m under supervision. I look forward to working with you, Shijo Senpai.”
……Eh? What did you just say, eh?
“Eh, what’s going on, Ryoga?”
“No, w-what do you mean?”
I knew she was a voice actress, but Aono Enterprises is….. no, but there is only one office with that name, right?
“That’s why I’m telling you. Senpai ・・・・.”
“T-then, you knew me at school–“
“Oh, I learned it from Seki san. He told me that you are a reliable senior and that you can help me with a lot of things.”
Seki san, that old man……
“Then, let’s sing along ! Nanahoshi senpai, please.”
Erika handed the microphone to Nanahoshi san as if nothing had happened.
“R-Ryoga, let’s go get a drink.”
“Eh? But there’s still some of my drink left.”
“Hm? What did you say?”
It’s not my fault……. I mean, why are you so mad …..
