72. Nianfo, Namu Amida Butsu
And it was the weekend.
As promised, the three, came to a certain amusement park.
“Hey, look at those three.”
“Wow, what the hell? The two on both sides are really beautiful.”
“Maybe it’s what they called “3P Date”? Woaaah, I’m soー jealous.”
“It’s exactly what you call, “Two blessings at once”, Woah.”
The young people lined up behind Atsushi, Yuri, and Kaede, saw them and talked in a low voice. Of course, the three could hear it, since it wasn’t that low enough.
Certainly, from an objective point of view, Atsushi was in the state flanked by two beautiful girls. No matter how good or bad the personality of the girls, No matter what the reasons or circumstances might be, he was in fact, sandwiched by two beautiful girls, Yuri and Kaede, and of course, many would envy him.
Of course, Atsushi was aware of it. he understood that Yuri and Kaede, were beautiful girls, and he knew that from the other’s perspective, he looked like a man having fun with his harem.
But… unfortunately, he couldn’t afford to worry about that now.
“Nianfo, Namu Amida Butsu, Nianfo Nianfo, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Nianfo, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu……”
The young people might have said whatever they wanted, as they please, because they only saw his back from a distant rear, but those in front of them, he looked like someone who might die soon.
After all, his face had stiffened and he had been chanting something, kind of sutra, since a while ago.
“O-oi Yamagami. You, are you okay?”
『”Your face, is several times worse than usual…”』
“Fin, I mean, I-I am faineee. J-ju-just this much, is nothing…”
While saying that, the fact that his body was trembling and his voices too. suggested that he wasn’t okay at all.
『”No way, Atsushi-san is not good at this kind of ride…”』
Currently, the three were about to ride the tallest roller coaster in the amusement park. However, it was an amusement park in a small city. It wasn’t as tall as the one compared to what you could see in the amusement park in a big city.
However. Still, for Atsushi, it didn’t matter… why?
“T-to be honest, I’m, not that good with, high places…”
“Well, that’s a surprising weakness. Then, what about airplanes?”
“No way I’ll sit inside that thing… I mean, why are you all okay, being inside that lump of iron? You’ll definitely die if it crashed, you know? It’ll be a no help situation you know? But everyone is using it like there’s nothing wrong. I think you’re all crazy.”
“That, you’re being too much…”
『”It seems you’ve got a serious illness.”』
However, Atsushi didn’t argue. No, he couldn’t. Why? He was so nervous now, that he couldn’t think much.
“I mean, if it’s really impossible, you don’t have to ride with us, you know?”
『”Well, for me personally, your reaction seems very interesting, so I’d like to see more.”』
Atsushi shook his head awkwardly against Kaede, who was worried about him, and Yuri, who didn’t hide her curiosity.
“I-I’ve come to this point, I-I can’t suddenly back down. And, for, a man to wait on the side, alone, waiting for girls, t-that, will stain my honor…”
Atsushi continued his words,
“A-and doing something like this… with my friends… I’ve never experienced it before… So, I’ve resolved myself, I’m ready.”
When Atsushi was a child, he had visited the amusement park several times with his parents. However, he had never visited with his friends.
Atsushi had never been teased before riding a roller coaster like this. And, he had never been so nervous too.
But, he was a little happy, as he had the chance to experience something like this.
He felt that way, but…
“――― Why, why the frooooont?!! Whyyyyy!!!!!?”
In the front row of the roller coaster, Atsushi was screaming.
“It can’t be helped. Just happen to be our turn.”
『”That’s right, Atsushi-san. And you said that you’ve resolved yourself, so don’t complain about it anymore.”』
As Yuri and Kaede said,
In the first place, amusement park rides, especially roller coasters, there wasn’t much choice, your seat would be decided in order, and when it was crowded, individuals couldn’t request otherwise.
They didn’t deliberately choose the front seat, it was a complete coincidence. In other words, it might be a God’s trial.
Whatever it might be, Atsushi was still screaming.
“No, wait a minute, waiiiit! I said I was prepared, but still, this is too muuuuuuch!! At least, at least, let me seat in the middle!!”
“Yeah, yeah. That’s why you’re between me and Shirasawa.”
『”Aren’t you happy, Atsushi-san? I mean, you’re seated between two beautiful girls right now.”』
This roller coaster, was three seats in a row. Atsushi said he wanted to sit in the middle (row), that was why, he was being sandwiched between Yuri and Kaede.
Then, the safety bar was dropped, as if he was sentenced to death, even if he was still resisting, begging, to spare his life from being taken.
Regardless, the roller coaster started to move and was rising steadily.
“Eh, wait, oi, really wait, and listen to meeee!! Listen to what I’ve to say first, let’s have a negotiation. It’s still not too lateeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…….. eeeeeeaaaaaaaAAAAAAA!!!!!!”
Atsushi’s words never reached anyone, and as the coaster went down, he was screaming.
