“I will now begin the interview. I’m Sawamura, the manager. Pleased to meet you.”

“I’m Sada Kento. Pleased to meet you too.”

I’m at an interview for a part-time job.

I haven’t had an interview like this since I took the high school entrance exam, so I’m nervous.

“That’s what I’d like to say, you passed. Can you come tomorrow?”

“Eh? I’m hired?”

“I’ve already gotten a good idea of your personality from your resume. And more importantly, we’re chronically short on staff. I’d like you to help out.”

“I see, I understand. Looking forward to working with you. And I can start work tomorrow.”

“Then, let’s go over the shift schedule.”

“Yes, sir.”

==================================

“Welcome back〜Onii chan ! How was your interview?”

“They hired me right away. They said I can start tomorrow.”

“Eh? Tomorrow !? Isn’t there some kind of training first?”

“They said the training starts tomorrow.”

I was told that I would be assigned to an instructor who was close to my age.

“It’s my first part-time job, so I’m nervous.”

“Then Hikari will help Onii chan relax, okay?”

After that…….

I got a massage.

================================

The next day. I was on my way to my part-time job.

My body felt light.

I didn’t think Hikari could do that. Massage.

I entered through the employee entrance.

“Oh, Kento kun. I’ve been waiting for you.”

I was greeted by the manager and a beautiful college-aged woman was standing next to him.

“This is Miyahara Emiko, who will be your trainer.”
Kento-kun is good at cooking, right?
I’m going to ask you to join her in the kitchen starting today.”

“Why should I…..”

“I understand, Manager. Emiko san, I’m looking forward to working with you.”

“Try your best not to cause any trouble.”

……Oh? I wonder if she has a tough personality.

==================================

“Haa…..”

If her personality is tough, is it natural that the guidance is also tough?

She was in a bad mood and cursed at me.

Apparently, I’m blessed with a relationship with an abusive girl. I’m not happy about it though.

This will be going on for two weeks…….this is hard.

“Oh, you’re the new guy?”

“Ah, yes. I’m Sada Kento. Pleased to meet you.”

“Oh, I’m Makabe Shingo, a freelancer. Everyone calls me Frima.”

I almost burst out laughing at the”Frima,” but I knew that might be rude on first meeting, so I managed to hold it in.

“Kento’s trainer is Emiko chan, right? The store manager told me.”

“Oh, that’s right.”

“She’s pretty tough, isn’t she?”

“Yes, very tough.”

“I don’t like to talk about this behind her back, but……she’s a lot worse than you think.”

“…….Is that so?”

“She’s the daughter of the Miyahara Zaibatsu, and her father makes her work part-time in order to study social studies. She’s a proud woman and looks down on everyone around her.”

Seriously. So she was the daughter of that Miyahara Zaibatsu……

“The freelancer who worked as her trainer before quit because he couldn’t stand her abusive language.”

“Seriously……I also got abused a lot today. She called me trash when my cooking didn’t go well.”

“And that’s only on your first day. That’s really bad.”

“This is a bit painful.”

“Anyway, all I can say is, if you start to feel like you’re going mental, ask the manager to change your trainer.”

“I will.”

==================================

A week has passed since the training with Emiko san.

This is exactly the turning point.

Even though I said that, there was also a shift schedule involved, so it wasn’t like I was working part-time for the entire 7 days.

I’ve gotten used to Emiko san’s language.

Apparently, I have a high tolerance for abusive girls. I’m not mentally ill at this point.

In fact, I’ve been able to catch up on conversation more often, and I feel like we’re getting to know each other a little better.

It’s almost 9:00 p.m., and the customers have thinned out.

The kitchen is now run by me and Emiko san.

After a while, the food orders stop coming in, and there is a moment of silence in the kitchen.

It is a little awkward.

“Hey, Kento. How can you follow my instructions?”

“…….What do you mean by that?”

“You’re not upset at all these days, even though I’ve been using abusive language to you lately, and you haven’t seemed upset at all.”

I’m aware of that.

“It was a bit of a shock at first, but you’ve been teaching me well, for what it’s worth.”

“……I see.”

“Can I ask you something?”

“What?”

“Is it natural that your language is harsh?”

“Why is that?”

“I thought it looked like you were consciously slurring your words. Maybe I’m mistaken.”

She opened her mouth after a short pause.

“I’m conscious of it. I don’t want to be underestimated by a commoner. I was born the daughter of the noble Miyahara Zaibatsu, and I can’t let commoners dominate me. Never. We are the ones to look down on, not the ones being looked down upon.”

….The ones to look down on, not the ones to be looked down on, huh?

“……At least, I’ve been interacting with Emiko san without any connection to that. But if Emiko san looked down on me, I would be a little shocked.”

When I said this, Emiko san’s eyes widened a little.

“……I see. You should be shocked on your own. I live in a different world from the commoners.”

The training session went on without any problems, and on the last day of the program, things started to happen.

================================

“What are you doing !”

The angry shout echoed in front of the employee entrance, furthest away from the customers.

The cause of the incident was Minato san, the freelancer who was currently the victim of the angry shouts.

To put it simply, she failed to make the food that was ordered and was late in serving it to the customers.

I’ve been training for the past two weeks, and I’ve seen her personality.

Minato san is an exceptionally clumsy person.

According to the manager, if she stands in front of the cash register, she will create a traffic jam, and if she goes in front of customers, she will get into some kind of trouble.

She had no choice but to be assigned to the kitchen, where she can work the best and is easily followed up on.

She was dragging her feet, Emiko san was angry because she couldn’t stand it, and I was trying to reprimand her, and that’s the situation now.

Since it was a time when there were few people in the kitchen, I told her about the situation and left the kitchen with her.

The woman in question, Minato san, is completely demoralized by Emiko san’s angry words, probably due to her gentle nature.

Emiko san’s abusive language doesn’t stop.

“In general, you know? Why are you doing a job you’re not suited for? Couldn’t you get another job?”

“I have a dream…….”

“What is it, you want to debut as a singer-songwriter? Do you really think you can do it?”

Don’t do that.

Don’t just deny it.

She told me before. It’s the only thing she’s good at, even though she’s clumsy, the dream she’s really aiming for, and the very meaning of her life.

“Emiko san ! That has nothing to do with this !”

I can’t help but raise my voice.

But Emiko san doesn’t stop. She is going to choke the life out of me for sure.

“You, who can’t even hold down a part-time job—-“

Please don’t do this.

–Debuting as a singer-songwriter–

You can still be a good senior. Please don’t do it.

—There’s no way you can do it. I can guarantee you that.”

“…..Please apologize.”

“What? A commoner rebelling against me?”

“Apologize !”

She twitched at the sound of my angry yell.

“I can still tolerate your language. But denying people their dreams is unacceptable !”

Apologize. Apologize. If you do so, I might be able to forgive you for denying the very meaning of her life, and she might be able to forgive you.

“I-I don’t want to. My pride won’t allow me to apologize to a commoner.”

“….I see, that’s a shame. I respected you so much.”

==================================

After Emiko san went back to the kitchen, I was sitting on a bench with Minato san.

“I wondered if I would ever be able to make my debut.”

She seemed to be concerned about what Emiko san had said earlier.

“Minato san. Don’t worry about what that person says. I can’t say irresponsibly that it will come true, but I think it’s cool that you’re working hard for your dream.”

“……Thanks. I’m really glad to hear you say that. I will try my best from now on.

I’m glad she didn’t give up on her dream.

The next thing I know, there are no more opportunities for me and Emiko san to get involved.

Sometimes we work the same shift at our part-time jobs, but Emiko san doesn’t talk to me anymore.

She ignores me.

I don’t think Eimiko has any right to ignore me, but she is a proud woman, so I guess she is getting angry because I yelled at her.

Well, if she ignores me, I won’t talk to her either.

…Maybe I’m the one who’s getting annoyed too.

I mocked myself as I thought that.

The reason why Yuto almost laugh after hearing Frima is because, Frima is a Korean product of coffee creamer. I thought to myself that since it’s a Korean product, they are available to a certain degree in Japan too.
