The end of my ordinary days
“Hahahahaha! You’re too funny, stupid!”
2 hours into math class, Ike was loudly chatting with Yamauchi . It had been three weeks since the entrance ceremony; in that time, those two, along with Sudou, were given the name “the stupid trio” .
“Ne ne, do you want to go sing some karaoke?” “Yea, let’s go—”
Nearby, a group of girls were making after school plans .
“Even though people were nervous for a while, it seems like everyone’s opened up to each other quickly…”
“Ayanokouji-kun, haven’t you also made more friends?”
Horikita asked me while she was writing down notes from the blackboard .
“Eh, somewhat . ”
Although I was anxious at first, I got to know Sudou from meeting at the convenience store, and Ike and Yamauchi from the incident at the pool . We occasionally eat lunch together too .
Even though I was far from having “close” friends, I was happy to have some friends .
However, human relations are mysterious things, so it isn’t clear when they became my friends .
“Yo . ”
Halfway through the class, Sudou barged through the door of the class with a bang .
Ignoring the fact that it was the middle of class, he plopped down on his seat with a big yawn .
“Hey, Sudou . Ah, do you want to eat lunch later?”
Ike said in a loud voice from across the room .
The teacher continued the lesson without saying anything about Sudou . A piece of chalk would’ve been sent flying in a normal classroom, but this teacher seems to be completely tolerant of their behavior . At first, the class was much quieter and reserved, but these days everyone is overly relaxed .
Of course, there are a few people like Horikita who diligently study and pay attention .
My pocket vibrated, indicating that I received a text message . It’s the group chat . Looks like they decided to go to the dining hall during lunch .
“Hey Horikita . Do you want to eat lunch together?”
“No thank you . You guys are very crude anyway . ”
“… Can’t deny that . ”
After all, when the boys are alone, all they talk about are girls or dirty jokes . Who’s cute, who’s dating who, and all that stuff . It’s probably bad to add girls to this kind of conversation .
“Wow… he’s already done it with her? Amazing . ”
From their conversation, it sounds like Hirata is dating Karuizawa . Looking at her from afar, it was obvious that she was sending Hirata lovey-dovey gazes .
She’s definitely cute, but she has a hard-to-approach air about her that’s not indicative of a beginner in love . In other words, she’s the “gal” type of girl .
In middle school, she probably went out with an ikemen just like HIrata . It’s a big leap, but I’m pretty sure I’m not far off . Oops, I accidentally badmouthed her .
I apologized to her in my head .
“I hate that expression on your face . ”
Horikita looked at me with a cold gaze . Looks like she saw through me .
What do you have to do in order to become a couple right after the entrance ceremony? I’m still having a hard time making friends .
If I went up to Horikita and said, “Will you go out with me?”—I’d get punched immediately .
Besides, if I were to get a girlfriend, I’d like someone more refined and gentle .
