Chapter Eighteen: Middle School for an Idiot (Part III)
“…Is there anything else?”
Oh, no, I didn’t know there was another scheme…!
What if… that’s it! Did they hire a powerful sniper whose skills are so dignified that he has someone to stand behind if he offs the daughter of the Hououin family!?
Wait, no matter how you look at it, this situation seems like he’s my dog who is going to die protecting me…! Finally, he’s going to go down saying, “You were a fool, but you were the best owner…”
“Eh… No, no, no! I don’t want to! I don’t want you to die! The main story of the otome game hasn’t even started yet!”
“…How would that happen? Don’t go killing off people without permission. I don’t know if I’m going to die, but I won’t be leaving a fool like you behind. I’m too worried to the point that I might become Buddha himself.”
…Huh? As far as this reaction goes, there aren’t any assassination flags, right?
That’s great…! I absolutely don’t want Kaname to die!
The bottom line is that even if you meet the heroine and leave me someday, you must be happier than anyone else by then! Even if God dictates you to end in an unhappy situation, I will not let Him! Absolutely!
“…But then I really don’t know…?”
“Well, I mean… More important than that. I lost my textbook again, so please come along with me to buy one.”
From the olden times… Yes, I was the queen of losing her things in my previous life, but these days, it’s been very more frequent. I think that’s because no matter how much I lose my items, I could quickly get them again by spending money.
…Affluent schools are outstanding. No matter how much I lose textbooks or lesson tools, they always have spare supplies in stock for purchase. What’s more, it’s a divine specification to give it to me for free! (Well, I guess that’s because my tuition fee is being overpaid, but I won’t mention that fact because it’s getting taken out from my father’s wallet).
Even if I lose my textbooks or get them messed up by lunch stains, it’s a huge difference when compared to those days when I didn’t know where to get a substitute for things that I’ve lost…! No, yeah. I don’t think it’s actually about being careless or alert. It’s more of a resource issue.
…I’ve always wondered, but isn’t there a mysterious black hole around me? There are a lot of things that are important to me that keep on disappearing. Even though the room is spotless because Mr. Takai cleans it every day… Oh, maybe that’s the reason? Maybe it’s too cluttered, so he mistakes it as garbage hence throws it away…? I can’t say for sure myself. I’ll casually ask Mr. Takai about it next time.
“…You’re really stupid.”
“That’s too much! It’s true that there are a lot of things that I keep forgetting that are needed in class, which was why I was asked to start placing everything I needed in my desk, but now that I’m checking it, it’s a lot better…! Well, I’m talking about why I keep on losing stuff in the first place.”
“No… Well, if you didn’t notice it yourself, then I won’t tell you.”
…I don’t understand. Why do I have to look at Kaname for an answer? Why doesn’t he just open up and tell me why I keep losing my stuff? I’ll reflect on it myself for the sake of my life on Earth. Yeah.
“So, let’s see. Since I’ve followed you until now, I’ll buy us some juice.”
“…It’s a service for yourself, isn’t it?”
“Yes, yes. Let’s drink the newly released strawberry juice with a concentration of 50% and crushed strawberries.”
“…I like bananas better.”
“Bananas are good too, but strawberries have a more premium and luxurious feel to it…!”
The next moment, I accidentally caught my foot and almost fell forward, so I jumped on the spot to stop it from happening.
…Fufufu. I was distracted in my previous life and sometimes tripped over nothing, but I’ve inherited the Empress’s specifications, so I’m a bit different! Unfortunately, sometimes I still get distracted, but I have enough motor nerves to recover!
As it was, I landed as splendidly as a Kunoichi, and looked back on the owner of the foot with a refreshed smile.
“I’m sorry. I tripped over you… I wonder if it got injured?”
…I’m sorry for bumping into you; you’re also at fault for placing your foot haphazardly, so don’t ask me to give you compensation.
All right, if this develops into a trial, let’s make Kaname my defense counsel. If it is necessary, he should be able to win the case without a lawyer.
“No, no… I’m sorry.”
“If so… I’m glad.”
However, the lady, who had stuck out her legs to be in the way, forgave me with a smile… Yeah, let’s mind each other’s business! Sorry if I treated you like I was yakuza. I was just paranoid.
“Then, shall we buy it? Is it still necessary?”
…Yes? Why do you have the same dumbfounded eyes as you had before?
“…Well, if you’re not aware of it, then that’s fine.”
“And when you jumped up, I saw your underwear.”
“Gyaaah! You’ve seen my 100% silk, pure white, frilled underwear! You have such lucky lewd attributes!”
“I didn’t want to see it. Don’t give me information that I don’t even want to know.”
…That’s why you’re the main hero!
Also, be polite enough to blush!
You just saw a young maiden’s undergarment!
