Atsuko’s POV

Meow~

 

“Nyaa-chaaan!! You’re too cute~”

It’s been an hour that I’m in Takamina’s house now.

She keeps on playing with Nyaa-chan.
Again and again.

She lives together with Nyaa-chan so she can pet her anytime though.

Hello~? You’re having a guest now.

“Sigh… I’m going to a convenient store for a bit.”

“Sure~
Oh, buy a cola too for me!”

Why don’t you go and buy it together with me?
I felt miserable that I was hoping for that.

Without saying a single word,
I walked out of her house.

It’s cloudy outside.
I’ll be back soon so I don’t need to bring an umbrella with me.

I’m reading some magazines for a bit and then bought some snacks and drinks then done.

Drip… Drip…

Eh? Rain falls…
Buy an umbrella, huh…
Welp, I’ll just go back to Takamina’s house by running.

It’s falling quite heavy.
But I didn’t bother it so I dashed out.

I don’t hate rains.
There were quite lot of times that I didn’t use an umbrella in a drizzle.
But today is different. I’m totally drenched now.

On the halfway, I’m taking a shelter under a shop’s roof.
Drenched hair and clothes, all alone…
I once again felt miserable.

I crouch down and hug my knees.
I close my eyes in the middle of rainfall noises.

Splash

 

Hm?

“Sorry for making you wait. I came to pick you up.”

When I lift up my face,
I saw Takamina’s standing in front of me
with a little out of breath.

When I asked her why…

“You didn’t bring an umbrella with you,
and I knew you would go back drenched.”
She said that while patting my head.

Even though I’m a bit unconscious now,
Takamina looks so cool saying that in front of me.

I was too embarrassed, so I just looked down.

“Let’s go home.”

She pulls my hand and helps me to stand up.

While holding hands,
we walk under the same umbrella.

I can’t hear anything but rainfalls
between us.

My heart’s beating fast.

This is the moment when I think that
I don’t mind that time stops now.

When we arrived home,
Takamina dried my hair using a towel.

“Your face is red… I hope you didn’t catch a cold.”

“No, I’m perfectly fine. Don’t worry.”

 

…stupid.
It’s because you’re just too attractive to me.

 

I changed my clothes into a loungewear
and drink a hot cocoa made by Takamina.

It’s so warm, and I’m getting sleepy…
Just when I’m about to lie on the sofa…

“Here.”
Takamina pats her lap.

I act like nothing happened and lay down my head on her lap.
But to be frank, a strange heat is gathered on my face
and my heart won’t stop beating fast.

My fatigue is blown off but,
I really want to stay like this
so I peacefully close my eyes and fall asleep.

Chapter 11 – Atsuko’s Dream

Part 4

Minami’s POV

“Minami!”

When I arrived to the family restaurant,
Senpai was already there.

“What’s up?”
“Well, I’m sorry for borrowing Atsuko-chan lately.”
“Oh… She seems enjoyed it so I think it’s okay.”

Senpai agreed it.

“Umm, about things you want to discuss…”
“Minami, I want you to know.”
“Yes?”
“I think Atsuko is…fit to be an actress.”

……huh?

“Eeeh?! Ahahaha! What are you saying, Senpai? Atsuko to be an actress? That’s impossible!”

I laughed out loud, but senpai didn’t. At all.

“To be frankly, it’s vexing to know that I brought her to be an extra, yet the director interested to her more than to me.”
“……eh?”

“Atsuko-chan didn’t tell you anything?”
“…yes. But her dream is to be a kindergarten’s teacher! Not to be an actress…”

“Is ‘to be a kindergarten’s teacher’ really her dream?”

…what does he mean?

“What I heard from her is that she will be a college student just because you will be with her together.”

……

 

“This is what I wanted to discuss. I’m sorry.”
He took the cash register and stood up from his seat.

“There’s no way that Atsuko will be an actress.”

“…hope so.”
“Huh?”

“If she is aiming to be an actress, she will be forbidden to be in a relationship.”

I kept on looking at him until he left the restaurant.

After parting with Shinoda-senpai,
I walked straight to Maeda’s house.

I don’t see her bicycle,
so I think she’s not coming back yet.

I sit in front of the entrance
and wait for her.

Just when the dark falls…

“…Minami?”
“Oh, welcome back.”

Atsuko’s face looks unusually like a grown-up woman.

“Atsuko.”
“Hm?”

“Today is the last time so, stop going for an extra.”
“……”
“I just… I don’t want this.”
“Minami…”
“What?”

 

“Minami… I…”

A sudden uneasiness came over me.

“I…want to be an actress.”

I feel like

everything in front of me turns into darkness.

Chapter 11 – Atsuko’s Dream

Part 3

Minami’s POV

Today is the day when
Atsuko is participating as an extra.

Looks like it will be last from morning until evening.

I was planning not to worry about her,
but this is a big distraction to me.

 

~♪
My phone rang in the evening.
It’s from Atsuko. She said “It’s over!”

I welcome her in the station.

“Oh, Minami!”
Otsukare! How was it?”
“…hmm… I think I’m really not good at this kind of thing.”
“Hahaha! I see.”

Not good.

She said that,
yet she talks whatsoever about today excitedly.

“And then, about the next shooting,”

 

…what?

“Atsuko, wasn’t it just for once?”
“Oh, they said that they want me to come again for a bit.”

 

…hmm. I see.

“Exam is just right around the corner. Just don’t force yourself, okay?”
“Hm…”

 

……?

I wonder what’s up with her.
She looks a bit…
odd.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the end…

Despite of being an extra,
days when there were not any cram school classes,
she used it for shootings.

And it already passed by 2 weeks consecutively.

I received a call from Shinoda-senpai.

“Minami, I have something to discuss.”

I went to a family restaurant to meet him.

Chapter 11 – Atsuko’s Dream

Part 2

Atsuko’s POV

I’m doing my best to study at the cram school
and under Minami’s private teaching everyday.

I chose to enroll to a Junior college together with Minami after all!

Today in the afterschool, Minami will look after my study.
I’m waiting for him who is being called by teacher,
alone in this classroom.

Knock-knock

I lift up my face to the source of the knocking noise.

“Long time no see, Atsuko-chan♪”

“…Shinoda-senpai…”
“Oh, please, don’t make that face.” He chuckled. “I won’t do or say weird things anymore, okay?♪”
“…oh//”

…I’m really bad at dealing with him.

“Atsuko-chan, I have a favor.”
“…what is it?”

“Do you interested being an extra?”
“…extra?”

He speaks with a small voice.

“Just between you and me, I’m making an appearance in a movie these days. Just a small role though.”

 

Hmm…

“And then, the director said to me that they’re looking for a girl who’s serious, cute, currently not a part of entertainment industry and completely amateur with acting.”

…amateur?

“So then something popped on my mind.”
“I refuse.”

“THAT’S QUICK! Oh, as I thought… Haha!”

…duh!
I’m a student who is taking exam for entering university now.

“…you bought a low cost of clothes, ate in a hi-quality restaurant, didn’t pay for a love hotel fares and didn’t let me to do anything that time when you went to a social study trip, right?♪”
“What?!”

“That time, I let you to do these and those things using my authority yet I didn’t get anything from you. I couldn’t even say a single complain, you know~?”
“……////”

 

This guy is the lowest guy!!

 

“Maaan, I’m so troubled. I wonder if there is a cute girl who wishes to be an extra somewhere~?”

 

He gave me a sidelong glance.
…such a filthy way!

 

“Just…once. Okay?”
“For real? Aww yeah♪ Thank you Atsuko-chan~!”

I avoid him who tried to kiss my forehead.
“Whoops, sorry. It’s my habit.” He laughed.

 

…Aaa I don’t want this! He is so irritating!

“I’ll inform you for more details!”
After saying that,
he dashed out of this classroom.

And for a subtitusion…

“Atsuko, sorry for making you wait! Did Shinoda-senpai came here?”

 

Minamiiii!!!

Just by seeing his face, I feel relieved.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“An extra?!”
“…yeah. He promised that it’ll be just once…”
“Will you be okay? Aren’t you bad at standing out in front of people?”

…he’s right.

“He promised that I’d just be an extra.”
“Let’s go together then. I’m worried.”
“No, I’ll be fine. Thanks anyway, Minami.”
“Well… It’d be a good experience for you. If you decided to do it, go and have fun with it!”

I thought he would be mad.

“Minami~
“Whoa-whoa-whoa! Atsuko, stop!!//”

I hugged him tightly. And…

 

“…Atsushi will be back home late today.”
“Huh//?”

“When we’re done studying…don’t you want to ‘snuggle’ together?”
“Wai—///What?!………shall we?”

“Then let’s go home

 

I pulled Minami who turned red
to go back home.

Chapter 11 – Atsuko’s Dream

Part 1

Minami’s POV

Autumn…

I’ve got a recommendation,
and I’m getting close to enter university.

On the other side, Atsuko will…
take general admission.

Plus,

Her grade lately is a bit…

So with that,

when there is no cram school after school,
I oversee her study!

“If you try this to this equation, you’ll get it. Go on and try.”
“‘ka~y”

Scratch scratch scratch

She’s writing on her note.

Scratch… Scratch…

 

…huh?

“…zzz.”

 

“Hey, Atsuko! Wake up!!”
“…hmmn.”

Well, it’s understandable.

Cooking, laundry, cleaning, dumping trashes…
She’s doing her best on living together with Akkun.

“Let’s do it again after a quick nap, okay?”
“…I might be oversleeping.”
“You’ll be fresh again after a 15 minutes of nap!”
“…then Minami, lend me your arm for my pillow.”

Both of us lied on bed and tucked in.

She’s using one of my arm to be her pillow
and I gently hug her.

“Wake me up, okay…?”

She fell asleep in no time.
Her bangs touch my cheek.

There are two glued bodies
under this blanket.

…hmm.

Takahashi Minami is now trying to withstand his lust.

 

Beep beep beep

The alarm is ringing.

“Atsuko! Atsuko, wake up!”
“…zzz.”
“Atsuko, come on! Wake up!”
“Hmm…nnn…”

To this sleeping angel in my arm,

I gave her a light kiss on her lips.

 

“…///”

Her eyes are still closed.
But her cheeks are getting red.

“Your cheeks are red!”
“……///”

She was trying to pull the blanket and hide under it.
But I grabbed her arm before she doing that.

“Hard worker person say aye?”
“…aaaaye.”

Under the blanket,
we kissed deeply for a while.

Let’s restart the study!

Maji Ikemen Kasuka na Kanojo

Chapter 2 – Bad Luck Nami

“Did you just add one more syllable to my name, miss?” Nami frowned a little to Kawai-sensei who’s frozen a little in front of her.

“Uhm…” Kawai-sensei snapped back after a few seconds. She tried to act normally in front of Nami. “Is…everything alright, Kawachi-san?” She asked with a little worry tone.

“Yes, maam…” Nami rubbed her eyes again. “Just…a bit lightheaded but I’m fine.”

“You can go to the infirmary and rest there if you don’t feel well…” Kawai-sensei concerned about Nami.

“I…prefer to stay here and participate the lessons, miss…”

“If you say so… Don’t force yourself, okay?” Kawai-sensei smiled at Nami then leaves her with a puzzled look on her face.

It can’t be… Kawai-sensei thought to herself. But she brushed off that thought soon and decided to focus on the lesson she would bring to the students in her class.

~~~

“Hnnggghhh~ Lunch break at last!” Asahi stretched her stiffened body. She then got up from her seat. “Hinata, Nami… Let’s go grab something to eat!” She asked her two mates to accompany her to get some foods. Hinata agreed then readies to accompany Asahi to go. While Nami is busy with her cell phone and keeps looking at its screen. “Nami? You’re not going with us?” Asahi questioned the phone-girl but no respond.

Hinata smirked and got closer to see what absorbing Nami’s focus is. “I see that you’re missing the diva~” She smiled playfully at Nami.

“WH-WHA–? N-No, I’m not!” Nami startled by Hinata’s sudden intrusion and quickly hid her phone. Her face is a bit red because of that.

And that just made Hinata gets amused more. “Hmmm~ But I saw you were reading a conversation mails between you and the diva.” She pokes Nami’s shoulder using her elbow.

“Arrgh, geez!!” Nami snapped and stood up. “You’ll never stop teasing me, won’t you?!” All the students in the class are paying attention to her. She noticed that and thought that it’d be bad if she picked another fight with Hinata when people were around them. “I’ll…go to toilet.” She left Asahi and Hinata and head towards the toilet.

“Is she mad?” Hinata asked Asahi innocently.

Asahi sighed in defeat. “Well, I guess you can learn from that, that you shouldn’t piss someone who is troubled with their love life.”

“But I was just joking. Why did she take it seriously?” Hinata pouted.

“I heard that she hasn’t yet received any mails or calls from Ray since two weeks ago. I bet she feels lonely without the diva around her. And that’s why she often stays up in the late at night by playing games just to fill the emptiness inside her recently.” Asahi explained to Hinata.

“Hmm…” Hinata just nodded at Asahi’s explaination. “Oh!” She reminded of something and if it was animated, there was a bulb turned on over her head. “That reminds me of something. You know what?”

“No.” Asahi interrupted by answering that quickly before Hinata continued her words.

“Hey! I’m not finished yet!” Hinata tip toes and whispers something to Asahi. “I think that our homeroom teacher is an L!”

“What?!” Asahi gives a frowned look to Hinata. “That’s rude! How could you say that?”

“I don’t know. My instinct and my L radar said so when the moment she saw Nami for the first time.” An innocent smile is drawn on Hinata’s face.

Asahi face-palmed. “You know what? I’d better to fill my stomach right away rather than listening to your absurd discoveries.” She walked away and left Hinata.

“Heeey, Asahi!! Wait for me!!” Hinata ran after Asahi dramatically.

~~~

There are only 2-3 people in the ladies toilet room including Nami. She keeps looking at her phone screen that shows a conversation between she and Ray the diva. “I know you’re a diva and having a tight schedule in the showbiz. Can’t you at least inform me that you’re doing okay…?” She murmured by herself then put back her phone to the pocket.

She washed her face in the washbasin. She tried to ease her mind by doing that. A long sigh came out from her. And then she looks at herself on the mirrorreflecting on what just happened to her.

“Kept staying up late in the night made me turned into a short-tempered person. I feel sorry to Hina–…” A growl from her stomach disturbed her self-reflection. “Damn! I forgot that I haven’t eaten anything since I woke up this morning! …and I remembered about my hunger when I was about to say a thing about Hinata.” She shrugged and soon left the toilet.

~~~

In the cafeteria…

“Geh… Look at that long line…” Asahi showed displeasure and disappointed look on her face when she looked at a long queue in the cafeteria’s counter.

“Let’s go to bakery corner instead. I’m craving for sandwiches~!” Hinata gave another option to the tall girl.

“Well, I guess I’ll have some too. Let’s go.” Both of them went to the bakery corner, few meters away from the cafeteria counter.

“Can I help you?” The mid-aged woman who is wearing a chef costume welcomes the two of them with a warm smile as they arrived in front of the bakery corner.

“Do you still have some stocks of sandwiches?” Hinata asked.

“There’s a bunch of them.” The woman answered.

“How many of sandwiches that you’re going to buy?” Asahi frowned a bit to Hinata.

“Hmm… Three. And I think we have to buy some for Nami too. How about you?”

“Oh, you’re right. Now that you’re talking about her. She’s taking a long time in the toilet. What is she doing exactly?” Asahi is worried about her little pal over there. “And, oh, I’ll have two and a low fat milk. And count two and a strawberry milk for Nami.”

“Okay. You pay for yours and Nami’s.” Hinata holds her hand in front of Asahi, asking for money.

“Tsk… Fine.” Asahi took her wallet and was about to take some cash from it.

“Wah! I forgot to bring my wallet in my bag! Can you lend me some cash too?” Hinata pleaded to Asahi with a goofy smile.

Asahi sighed and rolled her eyes. “Fine, fine. But when we get back to classroom, I don’t want any excuses from you and I’ll get my money back!” She handed some cash to Hinata.

“I got it, I got it!” Hinata nodded and took the cash. “7 three-layered sandwiches, 2 strawberry milks and 1 low fat milk please.”  She ordered to the bakery woman.

“Coming up!” The woman is putting all of the things ordered by Hinata into a plastic bag. “That’d be 2250 yen.” She handed the bag to Hinata and received cash in return. “Thank you for coming.” She bowed to Asahi and Hinata as she handed some change to them.

“Thank you very much.” Both of them said in unison and bowed back to the woman. They walk away from the bakery corner and head back to their classroom.

~~~

Nami took out her phone again to check the time. “Oh, shoot! If I don’t go to the cafeteria quickly, I won’t get a chance to order anything!” The clock shows that it’s only 10 minutes before lunch break ends. “Just how long I’ve been spending my time in the toilet?!” She grumbled to herself as she fastened her footsteps. “I should’ve asked Asahi to order something for me…”

When Nami came out from the toilet and walked in a hallway, she met someone that she had met in the morning for the first time in her coming back to school.

“There you are!” Iwana-sensei pointed a massaging stick that he always brought when patrolling around school to Nami. His expression was just like a lion that had found its prey when he saw Nami. “Don’t you dare to run away again this time! Come to the office with me right now!”

Nami stopped her step spontaneously and froze in front of Iwana-sensei. She cringed and gritted her teeth. “Damn it…!” She cursed softly with a tone that no one could hear but herself.

“Now let’s go.” Iwana-sensei motioned his head for Nami to follow him to the office.

“…yes sir…” Nami responded in low tension and followed Iwana-sensei along to the office.

Just gimme a break… Nami cried inside.
