Volume 2 Episode 22 – The second day I spent with her, I was having dinner with her and found an unexpected pair of people



[Eat in corner]

“It’s almost time for dinner. I’m getting hungry.”
“Yes. I ate a hearty breakfast, but I’m ashamed to admit that I’m starving, too.”

After paying for Towa san’s clothes, we headed to the eat-in corner, carrying our luggage for both of us.

The luggage is large because it is clothing, but it weighs not much.

“Are you sure you don’t want me to carry it?”
“Haha. It doesn’t weigh much, so it’s no problem at all.”

I smiled at Towa san, who looked apologetic.

“Well. We’re about to get to the eat-in corner, is there anything you want to eat, Towa-san?”
“Well. I want to eat something meaty. I think. What do you have in mind, Kirito-kun?

Towa san asked me about the restaurant I was thinking of earlier.

“There’s a place called Mechaya Steak, what do you think?”
“I’ll go!”

I was a little surprised at the unexpectedly enthusiastic response.
I’m glad she agreed to go, though.

“Hahaha. I was looking into it when Towa san was changing clothes. It’s a pretty famous restaurant, and the last time I ate there, it was pretty good, too”
“I’m ashamed to say that I have yet to experience it. Kurose-senpai told me that it was a very satisfying restaurant, so I was curious about it!”

Kurose-senpai’s words may surely be the most important review of all for her.

With that thought in mind

“Then By the way, if you like, could you let me pay for the store there?”

I suggested.

“…….Eh. It is a steak restaurant, so the price is pretty expensive, right?”
“Haha. I know, but you see. I got a discount coupon at the store where I bought my clothes earlier, right? Let’s have dinner together with the money we saved at that time. I was thinking.”

I had received five coupons for a 1,000 yen discount.
In effect, a 5,000 yen discount.
With this money, even if it was steak, it would be more than enough for lunch for two.

“I see, is that so? Then I will take you at your own word.”
“As a man, can I show off a little?”

Talking about how much we wanted to spend, Towa san and I went to the front of the restaurant.

I ordered 250 grams of sirloin and had it cooked medium.
The rice was a large portion.

Towa ordered 200 grams of sirloin and had it grilled rare.
She had a normal serving of rice.

“You ordered rare, didn’t you, Towa san?”
“Yes, I do. When rare, the meat is tender, but if you use pellets, you can make it medium. You can enjoy two tastes at once.”
“I see. Maybe I’ll try rare next time.”
“Fufufu. If you don’t mind, would you like to try a bite?”
“Yes. I’d be happy to.”

Towa san and I took our steaks and rice and sat down.

Because it was a little after dinner time, there was room in the eat-in corner, so we were able to easily find a seat.

“Then let’s eat.”

Towa said and I said “Itadakimasu” in unison before cutting the steak into bite-sized pieces with a knife.

“…… Yum!”

The taste of juicy meat is unique to sirloin.
The more you chew, the more juices overflow.
I can eat an endless amount of rice with this.

I scoop up some rice with a fork and put it in my mouth.

Aah…… I’m so happy.

“It’s delicious. This is very satisfying for me too!”
“I’m glad you’re pleased.”

Towa-san says this with a smile, and I smile too, relieved.
Towa san cuts the rare steak into bite-sized pieces with a knife.
Then she stabs it with a fork and offers it to me.

“Here you go, Kirito-kun. ahhhnn”
“Thanks for the ……, Towa san. I’ll take it then.”

I’m a little embarrassed, but accept an ahhn from her.

“It’s …… delicious. I’ve never had rare before, but the tenderness of the meat is totally different.”
“Fufufu. I think rare is good when the meat is good. But if the meat is not very good, or if you have a weak stomach, you might get a stomach ache, so you need to be careful.”
“I see.”

As Towa san and I were tucking into the meat, two men and a woman appeared in my field of vision.

“…… that.”
“Is something wrong, Kirito-kun?”

I spotted the familiar duo at the end of the eat-in corner and felt a slight sense of apology as I told Towa.

“Perhaps I shouldn’t be so public about it, but may I ask you to take a look over there?”

I indicate the location to Towa-san with a glance.

“…… Ah, it’s Kirisaki-san and Hoshi.”
“Yes. They are having dinner together.”

The two members of our class committee are there.
There were two of our classmates, Kirisaki Shizuku-san and Hoshi-kun, who were talking over a meal in a friendly manner.

Kirisaki san is eating omelette rice. Hoshi kun is eating spaghetti.

“The two were so close that they went out together on their days off, right?”
“I think so. We saw them together in the classroom in the mornings.”

We were secretly watching the two of them while thinking.

“Fufu. It’s a little disturbing to hear someone else’s love life, isn’t it?”
“Haha. I think it’s in poor taste, but I guess it’s true that I am curious.”

When I was talking to her

“Ah! Those guys!!!”

I see the two assholes who were tangling with Towa-san earlier, going to mess with Kirisaki-san and the others.

[Remember me!] I remembered their faces because of what they said.

Kirisaki-san looks so annoyed, and hoshi kun is standing up to protect her.
But do the duo think that hoshi kun can win?
They were grinning and not trying to back down.

I should go to her aid. That was when she stood up.

Kirisaki-san saw the situation and stood up.

Don’t tell me she’s going to try to kick the target again!

But my prediction was overturned.

“Please help me!!!”

She shouted in a loud voice.

“Haha. Kirisaki-san, you remembered what I said.”

[You cannot beat a man by force. It is impossible unless there is a great difference in ability. On the contrary, it will only make the opponent angry. Even if you have mastered some kind of self-defense technique, you should only do it when you are in real danger.]

[A woman’s screams and cries are the strongest. It is a special technique that can defeat all men by itself.]

It was the ‘real self-defense’ I had told her at the arcade.

She was doing it well.

The two assholes who heard Kirisaki san’s loud voice ran away at once, as if they didn’t want anyone to come.

After checking on them, I sat back down in my seat.

“You didn’t need me, did you?”
“Fufufu. Kirisaki-san was following Kirito-kun’s teachings to the letter, wasn’t she?”
“Yes. I’m sure it would have been very serious if things had gotten violent there.”

Towa san and I are watching the two of them.
She pats his head like that though and says something.

“Fufufu. The two of them are a perfect match.”
“Yes. But is it rude to make any more peeks?”
“Yes, I suppose so. Well then, let us resume our date as well.”

Out of the corner of my eye, Kirisaki san and Hoshi kun were happily resuming their meal.

I and Towa-san firmly returned the dishes to the return slot and went to the next location. We went to the movie theater.
