“Hey, isn’t that him?”

“That’s Iriake?”

“He doesn’t look strong at all, but he’s really great, isn’t he?”

“I saw him, and he really wasn’t half bad!”

……It was hard to walk.

The reason for this is that I am being looked back and gossiped about just as I walk through the corridor.

But that’s not as disgusting as it was when I was on suspicion of dating Iyoki-san.

Rather, this is–

“Something kinda cool about him!”

“I can’t believe he’s going at a few guys who are a lot bulkier than he is!”

“The way he was protecting Iyoki-san–it was kind of cool”

As I was walking down the street, I was hunched over.

When I looked to the side, a person was looking at me with a grin.

“Yo, the most popular guy in the school.”

“Stop it, you’re making fun of me.”

“I’m not making fun of you. that’s true”


That day.

After I fought off Maesawa-senpai, the teacher finally arrived and the situation was under control.

I was asked about the incident, but according to the testimonies of those around me, I was not to be blamed for it.

To be honest, I was prepared to be suspended from school since I had caused such a big commotion, but it seemed that I did not need to be prepared for that.

And of course, the punishment for the others, including Maesawa-senpai, was not going to end lightly.

Not only this one incident, but many other things were uncovered, including other misdeeds and smoking, which led to expulsion from school and even police action.

I did not know this, but I heard that many students were saved by the punishment of Maezawa-senpai.

Well, Maezawa-senpai were really scared of me, and from the looks of it, I don’t think I will be able to cause trouble to anyone again.

“So, how does it feel to be popular?”

“I don’t like this kind of thing. I’d really like you to take my place.”

“Kaaa! I guess heroes do have something to say.”

“…… Haa?”

The truth is, Kento was right, I’ve been getting a tremendous amount of attention since then.

It’s all positive, and I’m frankly confused.

“Well can’t help it right. After being shown something like that, it’s no wonder people are interested in you.”

“I just wanted to protect Iyoki-san. ……”

“Hahaha, that’s just like Iriake, like that.”

What is just like me

Haa, I’m restless
When I was walking with a good-humoured stubborn person on my shoulder, I saw Iyoki-san in front of me.

At the same time that I noticed this, Iyoki-san also noticed it, and her face suddenly brightened.

“Iriake kun! Hello.”

“Hello, Iyoki san.”

I was just about to leave when Kento said, “I’m sorry for disturbing you!” and leaves the place.

Really, he was being weirdly attentive…….

“Huh? Iriake-kun, are you tired?”

“W-Well of course. I’m tired, as expected, when so many people see me.”

“Ahaha, I see”

When I am with Iyoki san, I am especially seen by people.

That is not particularly different from before, and it is due to Iyoki san’s immense popularity.

But before, I definitely used to get the not-so-favorable “why is that guy ……” look from people.

But now, that is not the case at all.

“Look, it’s Iyoki san and Iriake!”

“I knew it was those two.”

“Ah, yes. After all, they look good together.”

“I knew it. Because Irisaki saved Iyoki san twice.”

That’s right.

In fact, it was at that time that it was discovered and spread that I had saved her from the kidnappers.

It had been rumored for some time, and I heard that Iyoki san’s comment that I saved her at that time was the decisive factor.

Perhaps because of that, we were treated like an official couple.

Indeed, my life has changed 180 degrees since then.

“But that’s okay. I finally got the goodness of Iriake-kun across to everyone.”

“It’s not such a good thing. Originally, I am not the type of person who wants to be popular.”

“That’s true, Iriake kun is like that.”

In fact, it’s not good for me to be the center of attention.

“But I’m happy you know? I’m glad to see that you’re getting the recognition that you deserve. …but I don’t want you to be taken away from me because of it.”

“T- taken?”

“Aaah, it’s nothing! Forget about it!”


Suddenly her face turned bright red.

Well, let’s not worry about it.

I walked around with Iyoki-san, talking with her about trivial things.

Then, in front of my classroom, people who seemed to be my seniors noticed me and came over.

“You must be Iriake-san, right?!”

“Y-yes. Yes, I am.”

“I’m sure you’d be interested in the judo club or something. I’m sure you’ll be able to win the whole country …… or even the world!”


“Wait a minute! Iriake kun, you’re in the karate club!”

“No, you’re in the basketball team.”

“Soccer team!”

“No, no, no! he’s getting the literature club!”

It’s like a scene……

Also, I don’t think I’m a good fit for the Literature Club.

When I was troubled by the sudden struggle, the seniors’ faces suddenly became tense as if they had seen something terrifying.

“Everyone, Iriake-kun is in trouble, isn’t he? You understand, don’t you?””

Iyoki-san said in a voice that made my stomach churn.

The seniors fell silent, as if their energy from a moment ago was a lie.

Iyoki-san leaned in close to me as if clinging to my arm and smiled.

“Also, I won’t give you Iriake-kun, okay?”

At Iyoki-san’s words, the seniors quickly withdrew as if nothing had happened.


“Fufu, Shall we go?”


I could only say yes to the atmosphere of no hesitation.
