About The Case When I Started Living With A Cool Goddess-Sama, But Because Of Being Too Spoiled, She Ended Up Becoming A Clumsy Useless Person (WN) MTL – Chapter 31

Chapter 31: A Better Place to Be

The situation has changed drastically with Suqin’s declaration.

Yuki had been trying to corner Suikoto earlier, but now she was looking impatient.

“Didn’t you listen to me, Suikoto-san? How can you be so selfish not to give Aki to Kaho without thinking about him?”

“It’s because Akibara-kun told me it’s okay to be selfish.”

“I don’t approve of that! Aki, you deserve to be with Kaho the most!”

“Is that what Mr. Sakurai really wants? That instead of Mr. Sakurai, Ms. Sasaki would fall in love with Akihara-kun as a childhood friend?”

“I didn’t… I didn’t say that. No, maybe that’s what I want.

Yuki’s eyes were shaking.

Suqin-san says softly.

“I’m sure that’s not what Mr. Sakurai really wants. You should be selfish too, Mr. Sakurai. It’s not Mr. Sasaki who likes Mr. Akihara. You’re the one who likes Akibara-kun, aren’t you?”

“I’m not talking about Akihara-kun, but about Akihara-kun and Kaho’s relationship…”

Yuki’s words stopped there.

“You’re the only one who can give me what I want.”

Suikoto-san turned her head to look at me.

Akibara-kun. Let’s practice.

“Practice? For what?”

“We’re going to pretend we’re lovers, aren’t we?”

“Oh, yeah. If that’s what you want.

“Then try telling me you like me.”

“Heh?”

“You’re my lover, can’t you tell?”

When I said that, Suikoto-san’s face turned red and she looked straight at me.

Why did Suqin-san suddenly start talking like that?

With Yuki here.

Weak.

That’s a little embarrassing.

“I, uh, I like you.”

“… I don’t feel like I’m putting my heart into it.”

“I love you, Suikin-san.”

I’ve said it one more time.

I think she acted awkwardly the second time too, but Suikin-san squinted her eyes happily.

Yuki, on the other hand, looked shocked.

Mizukoto says quietly to Yuki.

“If Sakurai-san doesn’t like Akihara-kun, then why do you look so hurt?”

“… That’s… That’s…

Yuki hugged her chest in pain.

Then Yuki cast down her eyes and mumbled.

“I know I’m weird, I know I’m weird. But I still… I want Aki and Kaho to be together.

Maybe Yuki doesn’t know what she’s saying or how she feels.

I had a feeling.

Yuki spun around and flipped herself towards the door of the room.

I have to go to class.

And then Yuki disappeared from the room.

Suikin-san sighed in relief and sat down on the spot.

I hurriedly looked into Suikoto-san’s blue eyes.

Are you okay? Suqin-san.

“I’m just… I’m tired.

“Sorry.”

“Why are you apologizing, Akibara? I was happy, you know? Akibara-kun told me I could do whatever I wanted.”

Then Suikoto-san grabbed my hand.

Mizukoto-san’s white fingertips are entwined with mine.

“Miss Suikin… Well, I have to go to class soon…”

“Akibara-kun, you said you’d listen to my wishes.”

Yeah, but what?

“I want to keep doing this. Why don’t we skip first period?”

“What?”

“If we don’t come back, I think the class will misunderstand us more.”

“You don’t want me to get the wrong idea, do you?”

“We’re going to pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend, right? Then I think it’s better if everyone thinks we skipped class to go on a date and make out.”

“I told everyone that if we were going to go on a date, we’d choose a place with more atmosphere, not a dimly lit room like this.”

I blurted it out.

Where were you and Suikoto alone? she might think we were doing something shady.

Suqin-san chuckled.

Her silver hair sways softly.

“Then pick a place with a good atmosphere. Why don’t you go there now?”

“In school, it’s hard to say. But I’ll think about it.”

“Yes. I’m sure Akibara-kun will take me to a more comfortable place than here.
