All I have to say is, surprising development.
Thanks for all who read and leave a comment/like. It really makes me feel all warm and mushy inside 😀
High School – Third Part
Yuu: “…Hey, do you like me or something?”
Genbu: “That’s right, I love you, you know?”
Yuu: “You’re a liar. You just dislike Hiroto. Hehehe. But, I’ll definitely accept your help. You’ll separate the Hero from Hiroto. Now, what do you want in exchange?”
Genbu: “Since it’s you asking, you can choose how to repay me.”
“…hold on hold on hold on! Rejected!”
My eyes burst open and I spring up.
No way! What kind of memory is this? What was I doing? Did Yuu actually do that?
A calm voice washes over me as I’m holding my head crying.
Genbu: “Are you alright?”
Are you really Genbu Airu-san?! I squeak as I try to gather myself.
Usually, wouldn’t it be Hiroto or Kenshin or even Teruki by my side, as I wake up from one of my episodes? Or Mizuki? I’m worried about this guy next to me. What if he gets all rapey? Where am I? is what I said aloud.
Genbu: “…you’re on a bed in the infirmary.”
Oh, I’m losing my mind here. Huh? Where’s the doctor?
Genbu: “…As Head of the Public Morals Committee, I often have morning duties here. The doctor’s in the back room. I’m watching the front for him because he knows I’m respectable.”
He’s being deceived! By this perverted demon!
Genbu: “…You, you’re saying such horrible things. I’m not a perverted demon.”
Yuu: “You just don’t realize it! Huh? You can hear me?”
Genbu: “Well, you were just talking. So, are you feeling better now?”
Oh crap! I can’t believe I said all of that out loud. I wonder if I can make a break for this –
Genbu: “Are. You. Okay?”
He stretches and pulls at my cheeks. It looks like he’s enjoying himself for a moment there. But then he stops and looks at me.
Yuu: “…you know…”
Yuu: “…that’s why…”
Maybe I should just go to sleep. Today’s especially tiring.
Genbu: “You want to sleep a bit? I’ve never been rejected like this before.”
What is this person?! Is he trying to be sarcastic?
Genbu: “…Because you were crying, I was thinking of ways to comfort you. Everyone calms down when I squeeze their cheeks. Why do you dislike it?”
Yuu: “I can’t speak for everyone. But today I was sexually assaulted by someone I just met. AKA, you. I really disliked it and right now, I don’t want anyone touching me. Those kind of things are meant to be done by people who love eachother.”
Genbu: “Love, huh. If that’s the case, would you say that there is love between you and Houou?”
I couldn’t answer him. From now on, Hiroto and the others will start to fall in love with the Hero. That’s why, even if I say there is love, it’s just a temporary feeling. It’s fleeting. Oh, but.
Yuu: “I loved him.”
As such, I’ve accepted it. Even if it were for just a little while, I have gotten my love.
Genbu: “You’re using past tense. Alright, one last question. Why were you crying?”
Both Teruki and Mizuki had done nothing wrong. I had just been thinking selfishly. As I’m attempting to name the emotions I couldn’t put into words, he strokes my head.
Genbu: “Ah, don’t cry. I don’t know how to stop you from crying! My only trick is unpleasant, you know?”
Yuu: “…It’ll stop by itself…”
He furrows his eyebrows as if perturbed.
Genbu: “I’m in trouble. I wonder why it’s painful to see you crying. When I found you sobbing in the courtyard, I had also felt this way.”
He grasps the front of his shirt where his heart should be. Why is it like this? I should feel disgusted being touched by this person. But…I’m not.
With one hand, I softly pat his head. The feeling of his smooth black hair sliding against my fingertips is pleasant. Somehow, it’s like stroking a large beast. Because it’s black…maybe a black cat?
Yuu: “Your hair is so silky. It feels nice. Hehehe. Just like a cat.”
His eyes widen in shock for a second, but then he closes them soon after.
Genbu: “That’s a good idea♪. Maybe I should be your cat-san♪. I get impatient when I’m lonely, so play with me often♪. It’s fine like this, right?”
Then he leans forward and kisses me softly. Oh, there’s more? And rubs against me.
I smile at his platonic nudging, and continue to pet him. He laughs like a child.
Genbu: “Hehe. This feels nice♪. I’ll also pet you.”
At first, it comes off a bit strong, but he eventually does it gentler. As I’m drifting away into slumber, I hear his voice in the distance.
Genbu: (“Hehe. I like you. My owner, I’m having fun again♪ Now, slowly rest. Next time we meet, I’ll pet you too.”)
