Episode 44  – like? 3 (*Arisa’s point of view)



“‘Um, …… Eri-san.”

Shizuku voiced her fears.

“If Hirasawa-kun has a girlfriend, what will happen to the fan club? Would you blame his …… girlfriend or something?”

With or without the fan club, Shizuku is in love with Hirasawa Reo.

If she starts dating, she’s probably afraid of what dozens of people in her fan club will think of her.

I am confident that I can compete with anyone no matter what they say, but Shizuku personally is not that strong against such malice.

“Hmmm! I don’t know actually, but Reo is not an idol. he said he doesn’t want one, but I think he’ll make one someday. I know there are a lot of girls who don’t like that, but I think it’s fine if that’s who he chooses. I guess I’ll continue to support Reo and look for someone new!”

“You’re strong.”

“That’s not true. I’m not taking it too seriously.”

Come to think of it, this girl used to change boyfriends quite often before she fell in love with Hirasawa-kun. I wonder if it feels like you’re looking for your favorite while going out Lighty.

I don’t think I could ever emulate that. I think I’d be obsessed with one boy until I die.

“Arisa, you look pale. What’s wrong?”

“I’m fine.”

“After the show, we’re going to have a party with all the fan club members. I’ll see you both later!”

Eri waved her hand and went back to the fan club. You can see not only Eri’s face in the fan club, but also the faces of other students in the same class. Hirasawa-kun has the charm to attract so many girls.

“….I think I’m going to lose my confidence. I wonder if I shouldn’t be around Hirasawa-kun.”

“I’m here for Shizuku, and Hirasawa-kun will protect you, too, right? I’m sure Hirasawa will protect you. If it’s a guy who won’t protect you, I’ll beat him up first.”

“Fufu, I’m really glad you’re by my side, Arisa.”

“I can’t do anything without you, and that goes for both of us. We can sit down too.”

Shizuku and I sat down a little away from the members of the fan club. It’s not a packed game, and if you sit at the front of the second floor, you can fully see the game.

I wondered if the game had started yet.

“Thank you both for coming.”


While I was leisurely waiting for the game, a voice suddenly called out to me from behind.

I had been waiting for that voice. My heart was pounding with excitement. I had sent him a message before entering the match venue, so he had come. I wanted to call out to him, but for some reason I couldn’t turn my head to face him.

I heard Shizuku’s voice.

“Hello, Kogure-kun. Good luck for the match.”

“Yeah, well, I’m not a regular player, so there’s a chance I won’t be playing.”

“Well, how about him, Hirasawa-kun?”

“He’s a regular and the ace, so he’s talking with the starters. I’m in high spirits, so I think I’ll do a great job. Maybe he wants someone to watch him.”

“Umm, will you tell him I’m rooting for him? Of course, if he doesn’t need support, that’s fine. Wait… Arisa, how long are you going to hide your face?”

“Asahina san, is something wrong?”

Bad. I met him for the first time today, so my face is really red. Because I glanced at it, but it was a uniform with short sleeves and shorts.

so sexy, it’s dangerous. I might get nosebleed. He’s so precious, so precious I think I’m going to faint.


“Are you okay, Asahina-san?”

“I think Arisa’s head is a mess right now because she’s experiencing emotions for the first time.”

“I see.”

“……. !?”

When I realized it, Kogure-kun was right in front of me. He raises his hand and puts his palm on my forehead.

His warm hand heated up through my forehead. His clear eyes met mine, and my heart began to pound so hard I could hear it beating.

“You don’t seem to have a fever. If you’re not feeling well, please take a good rest.”

“W-What are you doing, Kogure-kun?”

“I’m sorry to leave Otsuki-san out of it. But when I see Asahina-san, I really want to care of her! It’s like I’m looking at Hiyori.”

“……Treated like a five year old child. I know how you feel too though.”

Shizuku pulled my body closer to her. I lost track of the temperature of Kogure-kun’s palms… I felt a sense of regret.

“I’ll take care of Arisa. The match is about to start, and you should go too, Kogure-kun.”

“Certainly. Then, please enjoy the match, both of you.”

Kogure kun ran up the stairs to the second floor.


“Arisa, you still say you don’t like him.”

I don’t remember Kogure-kun being that cool, I couldn’t see his face at all!

The players were finally starting to gather on the court for the final game to begin.

I haven’t seen many basketball games, but I’m pretty sure it’s a four-quarter game.

Shizuku is going to watch Hirasawa kun’s performance, but I don’t mind either way. Kogure-kun won’t play a full game if he’s not a regular.

“It seems like everyone in the basketball team has noticed Arisa.”

All the members of the basketball club were looking at us and making a lot of noise. As expected, I can’t understand what they are saying because of the distance between us, but it wouldn’t be good for me.

“Arisa is looking at them, so I guess they’re trying to show their good side. Everyone is really into it.”

“Where is Kogure-kun? …… Oh, there he is.”

“Arisa is only looking at one person, right?”

Kogure kun and Hirasawa kun were talking to each other. They’re really good friends, even talking to each other before the game. I’m jealous. But since Hirasawa-kun went to talk to me, Kogure-kun must be like Shizuku to me. Kogure-kun looked at me, and Hirasawa-kun was also staring at Shizuku.”


“I-I know, I know.”

Shizuku held up a small hand. Then Hirasawa-kun raised his hand in a big gesture.

“Ugh. …….”

Shizuku’s face became embarrassed and she stopped talking. Shizuku’s blushing face is really cute.

“You’re really looking at me”

“You can claim it soon. Hirasawa Reo likes Otsuki Shizuku.”

“Don’t say that. I’m not ready to accept it yet.”

The ten starting members are all on the court and the jump ball is about to begin. Now ……, I lay down and rested my head on Shizuku’s soft thighs.

“Hey Arisa!”

“Wake me up when Kogure-kun gets out.”


I’m sleepy.
