There’s Weirdos in Every Generation
We’ve been around a lot.
Popcorn is not enough to fill our bellies.
We bought a variety of robust meals and shared them with everyone.
And because I can only use one hand, everyone spoiled me and fed me.
Well, the guys.
What makes me so happy that I have to take food from men’s hands?
“By the way, Shindou, Tanaka often sends us pictures of his dates as if he’s harassing us, but we’re curious about you and Mita-san, aren’t we? Right, guys?”
Yamaguchi, the good-looking nerd, suddenly spoke up.
It was not only the boys but also the girls who were caught up in the conversation.
It seems that Suzuka, like me, doesn’t talk much about her daily life to the people around her.
That’s why they were curious about us.
“Well, it’s normal, isn’t it? Suzuka.”
“Yes, it’s normal, isn’t it? Sometimes, we go on dates, talk, that kind of thing.”
I talk about our daily life in response to the expectations of those around us.
Perhaps it was because I answered in a nonchalant manner that the stares from everyone were piercing me.
“Since we’re here, why don’t you try flirting here?”
Even though they are corrupted, it is said that they are surprisingly capable.
“The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that the two of you are not the only ones who have a lot in common. I can’t imagine you and Mita-san flirting with each other……”
“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. A graduation trip for all of us. But for now, I’ll close my eyes and you guys can flirt with each other.”
Suzuka and I were laughing as we were pushed by everyone who wanted us to show them our passionate relationship.
However, if they are suspecting us, we will show them what we have done.
“Yuki. Yes, ah~n.”
“Mmmm. Popcorn is better when it’s fresh.”
Showing the routine of getting me to eat the popcorn.
Suzuka and I felt a little bit of embarrassment and reduced our presence.
It was just plain embarrassing, you know? I regret doing it.
Because, you know, usually in these situations, it’s like….
“Oh, man. He’s hiding it, just like Tanaka, but it’s still steaming hot.”
“Oh, man. I’m soaked.”
You know, they play with me like this, right?
Suzuka, too, is not jealous like me, but she is involved with me in a bad way.
“I never thought Suzuka could make a woman’s face like that. Mmm-hmm, hi-hi-hi-hi-ho-ho. It’s so hot!”
“I’ve really never seen Suzuka’s face like that before. Suzuka is a girl too, huh~?”
She was teased about being a girlfriend for the first time, she just turned bright red and let the conversation slide.
Suzuka and I look at each other and laugh.
“What a pain”, huh?
While being teased about being a boyfriend, I headed to an area that was opened a few years ago, where characters from a popular video game franchise are located.
Just looking at the three-dimensional representation of the game world, I was transported back to my childhood.
I’m still a child, but I don’t know what to say.
“Look, look, they sell fake mustaches, see?”
Suzuka pointed to a place where fake mustaches were lined up, just like the fake ears often seen at amusement parks.
They were fake mustaches in the shape of motifs of famous characters that every Japanese citizen must have seen before.
Walking around the amusement park, I saw many people wearing fake mustaches.
The source of the fake mustaches was here.
“A fake mustache costs 1,500 yen. That’s a terrible deal.”
“You say that? Well, even if you think so, you promise not to say it out loud, okay?”
“By the way, Suzuka wanted that thing, so you pointed it out to me, didn’t you? Wait here, I’ll get it for you.”
“Oh, what is it? You want to buy that fake mustache?”
Kaneda-san was hooked with the idea.
Apparently, we were not the only ones who were curious.
So, after much discussion, it was decided that the two who lost in a game of rock-paper-scissors would wear the fake mustaches for the rest of the day.
“Rock, paper, scissors. Pon!”
Rock, paper, scissors.
The result was that Suzuka and I lost.
To tell the truth, I was embarrassed to wear a fake mustache, but I had no choice because I lost.
I went out of my own pocket to buy an expensive fake mustache and put it on.
I showed it off to the audience, deliberately imitating a character with a mustache.
“Haha, Yuki. You don’t look alike!”
“Suzuka. You’re the one who can’t laugh. You’re also pretty ridiculous with a fake mustache, aren’t you?”
“Yeah, yeah. Shindou-kun is right, Suzuka is pretty bad too, right?”
Kaneda-san took out a hand mirror and handed it to Suzuka.
Suzuka smiled bitterly when she saw the hand mirror.
She seemed to be unable to accept herself with an ill-fitting fake mustache.
“Damn, spending all day with this is just a regular punishment ….”
It goes without saying that everyone makes fun of me and Suzuka for wearing fake mustaches.
It cost me 1500 yen. At best, please entertain everyone.
“I’m going to go use the restroom.”
One of them goes to the bathroom.
Then I, too, start moving.
Of course, me too.
I finished my business first and went back to where the girls were waiting.
Then, guess what?
I heard a few trendy guys ask, “Would you like to have fun with me? I’ll buy you a drink. If you don’t like it, you can leave right away.”
I can’t quite hear them, though.
Suzuka and the others refuse with a wry smile to the overzealous pick-up artist, but even so, the other party is not ready to give up and is still eager to get involved.
Kaneda-san, in particular, seemed to be very uncomfortable as he blatantly brought his face close to hers.
I knew this was a bad situation, so I rushed toward them.
“Hey, sorry for making you wait. We should all go back soon.”
As soon as I say that, the look on the pickup-artists’s faces change bluntly.
“Damn, you really came here with a guy! Oh, man.”
“No way. Then, you should have said more properly that you were here with a man.”
The anachronistic pick-ups quickly disappeared.
What a pity, there are always weirdos in every generation.
“That was a disaster. They didn’t do anything to you, did they?”
I know they didn’t do anything to them, but I had to ask just in case.
Then all the boys came back.
And when Tanaka came back, Kaneda-san intentionally said, “I was scared. Tanaka-chan. Tanaka-chan.” They started flirting with each other.
Well, I know that Kaneda-san was really scared when the weird guy forcefully brought his face close to hers.
We tolerated it because of that.
“Yuki, would you have preferred to have me cry like that?”
“Do as you please.”
“No. I wasn’t scared. But, well, if I get a little more scared, I’ll cry like that, okay?”
“Oh, well, I’ll comfort you then.”
“Ehehe~. Okay. Thanks.”
“Isn’t that obvious?”
Hopefully, the time when Suzuka wants to cry will never happen.
I’m sure there will be times when she will want to cry, and that’s when I’ll let her cry without reservation.
“Tanaka. I was scared~!”
“Oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. It’s because I took my eyes off you…….”
“That’s right. That’s because Tanaka wasn’t there……. Next time we go out, we mustn’t leave each other, okay?”
“Oh, I’ll hold your hand, don’t worry.”
Now, let’s stop those guys who are just flirting, who say they were scared, but half-jokingly start crying halfway through, and just flirt…….
