Whew, it’s chapter 250.
250. Having shaved ice together
“It’s been a long time! I didn’t expect to see you in a place like this.”
I gave a smile at the end of my greetings. For the time being, I gave the best smile and attitude I could.
How was it? If you’re satisfied, can you go home now?…
…… What should I do? Isn’t this a pattern where I can’t stand up even after I finish eating? I mean, if he didn’t see me, he wouldn’t have been going in this store, right?… in the first place, what did he want from me?
The only thing I can think of it must be about… the child of the great aristocrats… did he know that I tricked them? No, it’s too early to think so, sure I tricked the daughters of Seikagu and Minakatain Household, to some extent, but no complaints are made. Yeah, it’s okay. It’s gonna be okay.
“Welcomeー, have you decided on your order?”
“…Hmm, then the same as this child. You two, get something too.”
While I was sweating cold in anticipation of the future development, Housei-san made a quick order and turned his face to the people in black clothes.
“Well, I could see you when I was walking outside, it looked like you were eating something that looked delicious. It made me also want to eat it.”
“Hahaha, yeah, it’s hot today. I was seduced by the letters “ice”.”
I answered with a smile.
He must be lying! There’s no way such a big deal would go out without getting in a car in this hot weather!
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting, This isー Yogurt Yuzu Lemon Shaved Ice.”
The same shaved ice as I ordered was placed in front of Housei-san.
“And, this is the Tropical Mango Parfait Large Size and Pork Cutlet Bowl. Thank you for your patience.”
…… Oi, aren’t those two so carefree? They received it with a big smile without care, are you really okay with that?
Even though I had something to complain about, the employer said nothing and put a spoon in the shaved ice. A light sound could be heard and the beautiful mountain was destroyed.
It sounds scary… or is it just me being too nervous?
“By the way, I haven’t said a congratulation yet.”
“You won the game and became the “King of Boys”. Congratulations.”
“Well, that was just all luck. It was because of everyone who cooperated with me.”
“Hahaha, really? I’m sure Shino will be in delight to hear that.”
“Shino-san really helped me a lot!”
Unexpectedly, the talk went on peacefully.
“But the title, “King of Boys”, is quite good. Even in our group companies, there are many voices saying they want you to come out in our advertisement.”
“Is that for real? I didn’t know that. But, I’m not an artist, nor an entertainer either. For now, I want to devote myself to my studies…”
“Good, surely the student’s job is to study.”
Housei-san nodded as he was convinced and brought another spoon of shaved ice.
Seeing that, I also put a spoon in the shaved ice.
“But lately, I hear rumors that you often “play with women”? “
For a moment, I felt like all the sounds had disappeared. And when I understand the meaning of the word, the sweat that should have stopped flowing, came out again. I felt a stinging gaze, and when I turned to the source, I saw a terrifying face of Housei-san. He had dark and stagnant eyes as if he wanted to kill a person.
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any complaints about boys being active in pursuing love, and I’m not narrow-minded enough to talk about the love affairs of others. It’s your freedom after all.”
…… What should I do? If I interrupt him, I’m sure his hand will come to my mouth.
“But, when I saw my cute granddaughter going back and forth because of such rumor, I couldn’t help to feel worried.”
His eyes were saying “Do you understand?”. Of course, I nodded.
“It seems that Shino is thinking about inviting you too, but it seems that she is having a hard time putting together her thoughts. In a way, she is still too naive. Well, from my point of view, I wanted her to invite you soon.”
Housei-san laughed a little, but I couldn’t laugh together with him because his eyes weren’t laughing at all.
…… In other words, he wants me, to invite her?
“No, it’s not like that. I didn’t come to ask you for inviting her. I’m not that shameless”
…… He read my thoughts.
“I just want Shino to have time to talk to you slowly.”
“So, in conclusion?”
“Hmm… well, Kohaku Hatano-kun, I want to invite you to have dinner at my house.”
After saying that, Housei-san brought another spoon of shaved ice.
“Y-Yes. I am honored to be invited…”
“Is that so? I’m glad I heard a pleasant reply.”
Then, Housei-san put down the spoon. He stood up and put his hand on my shoulder and said,
Now? He definitely doesn’t what to let any chance go…
“Oh, you can rest assured, I’ll contact your house. It’s okay, I say something that will make your housemaid move.”
…… Well, do you think just because of such a simple reason, my housemaid will fight with Toukain alone!?… Perhaps… I hope that won’t happen.
