Active JK Idol Seems to be Interested in Me Who is a Free Person. - Chapter 42 English

 Chapter 42 - JK Idol Wants to Talk at School Too (part 2)

I sat in the corner of the rooftop, answering a phone call on my cellphone.


"There's something we need to talk about, Sakurazaki."

"Hey, can I come over there?"

"You can't."

"Oh, come on, just a little bit, why can't we talk face to face?"

"We can't talk."


Even though we were on the same rooftop, we were in opposite places and speaking through the phone.

Although the rooftop wasn't too crowded during lunch break, it was generally used by couples, so people who were alone or with friends usually didn't come here.

I was willingly experiencing hell by deliberately coming to a place considered taboo for someone who was alone like this. (Of course, the same applied to Sakurazaki.)

"Listen! Today's lunch menu is scrambled egg with dashi—"

"Hey, you've been looking at me too much during class."

"There's tuna sausage! And also-"

"Hey, listen to me."

"Oh, my mom also gave me miso soup with miso balls."

"The situation of your lunch box doesn't matter. What's important is that during class—"

"Mmm! It tastes good!"

There was no use, she seemed unwilling to listen and was closing her ears to unpleasant conversations.

If that's the case, there's no other choice...

"Do you know, if you don't want to listen, I won't go to our usual place after school."


"Then, listen carefully."

"Mmm...! It tastes good!"

No, she wasn't listening at all. Or rather, she was ignoring the uncomfortable conversation.

Well, there's no other choice...

"Why do you keep looking at me during class?"

"... I'm more interested in you than the contents of the blackboard."

"Huh? Listen, if you keep looking at me like that, people will misunderstand."

"... But..."

Even through the phone, I could sense the disappointment Sakurazaki was experiencing.

"Himahara-kun, you're always together with Nanamizawa-san."

"We're not together."

"Everyone in the class thinks you and Nanamizawa-san are dating."

"We're not dating... Do people in the class really think that?!"

I didn't realize it at all.

"I also want to talk to you, not just with Nanamizawa-san."

"... No, it's not—"

"You don't want to talk to me, but you're always sticking with Nanamizawa-san."

"Could it be that you're jealous?"

"I'm not jealous! You're an idiot!"

Suddenly, the phone call was cut off.

When I looked to the other side, Sakurazaki was eating lunch with a pout on her face.

It's been a while since she was this angry.

I left the rooftop and returned to the classroom.

After the afternoon classes ended, during the time to go home from school.

I wondered if she would still be angry about what happened this afternoon, but I still went to our usual place. Sakurazaki was waiting there, folding her hands casually.

"Sorry for making you wait."


It seems her mood was still bad because of what happened in the afternoon.

However, she still came to this place as usual.

"Where are we going today? If there's a place you want to visit—"


"... Maybe the place you mentioned before?"


She said that while placing her hand on top of mine and intertwining our fingers.

"Even though you say that, you're still holding my hand."

"... idiot."

"Are you still angry about what happened this afternoon?"

"... idiot."

It seems she's still angry about it.

"Himahara-kun, you really don't understand a woman's feelings."

"... Well, maybe I really don't understand."

She tightened her grip on our held hands suddenly.

"Ouch, that hurts."


Sakurazaki was really mad.

But that's normal, so it's okay.

At least I have this...

"Hey, don't be mad anymore. I'll give you the Ver*use candy you like."

When I handed her the candy, Sakurazaki immediately snatched it and opened the wrapper before putting the candy in her mouth.


Seriously, giving her candy didn't make her excited again. Usually, it would work.

"I just want to talk to you at school."

"But that's..."

"I know it's not allowed. I know it's not good for me and for you... But..."

... Even if she says that...

"If we're together, there will be rumors that aren't good. So..."

"Is that so... Then, what if there's a third person?"

"A third person?"

"If it's me, you, and one other person, maybe people won't think that you and I have that kind of relationship, right?"

... Well, that's indeed a narrow boundary.

Three people, huh?

It's true that if there's one more person, maybe they'll see us as a group and won't immediately suspect the relationship between Sakurazaki and me.

"So, for example, could you talk to Nanamizawa?"

"... That's impossible."

Of course.

I rarely see Sakurazaki talking to girls in class.

But if I invited a male friend to talk, it would be a group with two guys and one girl. People might think Sakurazaki is leading around guys like a greedy woman, so it would be pointless.

"Alright, I'll find a friend!"


"I'll make a friend and introduce them to you!"

It's amazing that she's trying to do something, but... at least it's good that she has the desire to make friends.

"I'll do my best."

It might be difficult for her to make friends at the beginning of the second semester.

That's what I thought...

One week passed since Sakurazaki announced that. During lunch break, I trembled with surprise.

On the rooftop during lunch break, students around us were whispering and looking at us.

"Um... I'm Renkawa Miyu."

"Because Miyu-san is also an idol, we feel connected."

She brought a fellow industry colleague...
