Chapter Forty-Two: The Heroine of a Fool (Part V)
“…You’re doing pretty well today.”
When I was having lunch with Kaname as usual, he said this to me.
“Huh? What do you mean?”
“It’s the first time I’ve seen you like this since middle school.”
…Really? Is it that different?
Well, I was surprised by Sukeban Macho-san.
“No… Actually, in the morning, Himeno Saeki rushed into the dormitory room and fixed my appearance for me.”
Kaname’s expression became grim when he heard my words.
“Hey… That perverted woman, did she really think I couldn’t go to the dormitory for girls, so she went and did that? Tomorrow morning, get out earlier than usual. I’ll pick you up at the entrance.”
“No, thank you! You don’t have to do that! …Himeno-chan isn’t such a bad girl.”
She’s indeed a Do-Me, and I was almost made to wear red pin heels, but she dressed me up, and it’s not that I can’t understand where she’s coming from.
Above all, she is one of the few, if not only, reincarnate that I know of. If you can have good company, then it’s better than that.
“…How can you be calm when you are told that you’re going to be trained to become a Do-S in public? She’ll take advantage of such a perversion if you don’t refuse her clearly.”
“No… But, well, the mental damage is not that great.”
…Rather, let’s not say that the yodarekake caused more mental shock on me than she did. But today’s hamburgers will never be spilled on my uniform…! Never!
“If you don’t mind, then that’s fine, but… stop putting all of your vegetables on my plate. Eat it all.”
“…But I don’t like sugar-glazed carrots and sauteed shiitake mushrooms. Aren’t they good? Kaname, you like this one too.”
“Tsk… Eat your salad properly.”
Hooray…! I can’t do anything about it, can I? This is all that I can eat.
But it was painful just to leave it, so I’m glad that Kaname ate everything else.
“–What are you doing, you?”
I felt a lukewarm breath around my neck!
“I can’t believe you dislike vegetables… You’re really not like Empress-sama; you’re a person who needs a lot of training. You’re…”
How come there were no signs! Before I knew it, you were already behind me!?
“It seems that you’re conscious of eating vegetables in salads, but that’s alone is not enough vitamin C. It looks a lot because it’s raw, but it looks much lesser when cooked. Besides, carrots are said to be more nutritious when heated only. Shiitake mushrooms and other mushrooms are low-calorie and rich in fiber. You have to eat them properly.”
“Ku, you know a lot, Himeno-chan.”
“That’s just common sense… You are my ideal in appearance, so I need you to maintain your beauty. If that white and beautiful soft skin becomes covered with acne because of your inappropriate eating habits, I’ll get angry.”
“…Hey, don’t try to sit next to Ayaka without permission, perverted woman. This is not a good place for you to come to.”
At last, Himeno-chan caught sight of Kaname and raised an eyebrow to him dexterously.
“Oh, are you so narrow-minded that you can’t even let a lonely student who doesn’t have many friends yet sit with you, Student Council President?”
“It’s not a matter of my vessel. It’s a rule. This is a special table for the Student Council. General students are not allowed to use it.”
“…Then why is Hououin here? Even if her family has power, she should still be treated like an ordinary student.”
“Ayaka is the General Affairs of the Student Council that I appointed. Unlike you.”
“Yeah… I did think her uniforms were different, but if that’s what happened… then it’s troublesome.”
…That’s weird. This is a situation where it wouldn’t be strange if flags were inadvertently raised, but Kaname and Himeno-chan’s voice are only thorny… Why?
It felt like a blizzard was blowing.
This is a conversation between the main hero and the heroine, right?
It’s not sweet at all, but… What was it when we first met?
“It can’t be helped… I’ll take care of this.”
In the end, it was Himeno-chan who broke the tension.
…I’m relieved, that’s good… Now we can continue our lunch peacefully…
“So, Hououin Ayaka. Starting tomorrow, I’ll make you a nutritionally balanced lunch box, so you have to eat it.”
“…Wait a minute, perverted woman. What are you…”
“If it’s not in the cafeteria, then there are no rules. I will prepare a lunch box with outstanding beauty effects, so please look forward to it.”
“Hey, Himeno-chan, wait…”
Oh, my! She just said it and went away! I couldn’t even answer anything!
…To what extent are you going to go at your own pace, Himeno-chan?
However, I’m in trouble.
“…Hey, Ayaka. This might sound unilateral, but I’m not going to let you deal with such perversion.”
“…Well, no, I don’t think it’s like that. She said she’d make a bento for me.”
…It’s bad to waste lunch.
But I’m afraid to go alone… I know!
“Kaname, let’s have the boxed lunch tomorrow, and the three of us will eat together! Then…”
“I absolutely don’t want to.”
“…That’s how much you want me to get along with that perverted woman. I definitely don’t like her.”
“What? No, that’s not what I meant…”
I don’t think Himeno-chan could make Kaname happy. I just wanted him to be there for me as Kaname…
He ate some shiitake mushrooms with a very disgusted face. You don’t like it? Is it because you don’t like it, but you still ate it?
“I won’t go… You do whatever you want. You are free to have lunch with anyone.”
What should I do?
I feel like I can see the choices for otome games in the air.
What about tomorrow’s lunch?
Eat bento with Himeno Saeki←
Eat with Ryudoji Kaname at the Cafeteria
This is what it says! …But which is the right option…?
