How to lose a girl with a poisonous tongue, starting from 100% likability (Volume 5) - 6 - Epilogue
“Aito, Ryoha. Congratulations on your relationship. We’ve finally done it!
Nanna congratulates us with a happy expression on her face as we stand in line, holding hands.
The date changed to Tuesday. We met up at the station to go to school together, and decided to stop by Enkou Shrine a little early to report and thank the God who brought us together. As we reached the money box in the shrine grounds, Nanna appeared out of nowhere.
“Nanna is really proud that she was able to fulfill both of your prayers, and since she was able to make two 50,000-class prayers come true at the same time, she is not only the MVP of the year, but she could even make a big leap forward to give her opinion to those old b******s……. Oh, it’s nothing, you two. Yes, I did what I had to do as the god of love fulfillment. Congratulations!”
“Oh, come on, you’re just spilling your true feelings…”
“Well, that’s all right. Besides, 80% of the reason I went out with Aito-kun was to flatter God, so I have to make Nanna happy. Otherwise, I won’t know why I went out with this guy.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes, that’s right.”
Himuro smiles gracefully. But behind her back, she squeezes my hand even tighter as if to say that it must be a lie…
“So, what happened to …… Ranra after that?”
“Well, Ranra, since the two of you ended up getting married, she was very depressed, but it seems that Masa encouraged her, so I think she’s going to be okay. I don’t know which one of them is God. Well, he’s still my friend, so I’ll at least see him later.
Nanna sighs in relief.
She may be a scumbag and her randomness tends to stand out, but when I see how well she takes care of me, I know she’s doing God’s work. Thank you for everything. And then…
“I see. By the way, just because I’ve granted your wish doesn’t mean it’s goodbye. I know you’ll be in the store when I get to town. So please keep in touch with me.”
“Of course. Aito is one of the few people in the game who knows who I am. I’m sure I’ll be of great help. I’m sure I’ll be visiting your room again, and I’ll be glad to see you.
“If you do, be sure to let me, your wife, know. God is of the opposite s*x, so I expect you to know what you are doing.
Himuro took a step forward and looked at Nanna with a friendly smile. He had said something like this earlier for Nanna’s sake, and then he said this. It was so cute that I couldn’t help but want to hug her.
After that, we leave Nanna and leave the shrine, and we walk slowly along the bike path to Kimijima Academy. This is where we used to do our community service. It was only five months ago, but it feels like a long time ago.
As I was walking along, lost in my thoughts, a light voice suddenly came from behind me with a slap on my back…
“Hey, Aito, good morning!
It was Miyabi who looked at my face and smiled cheerfully.
I felt awkward and looked away from him because it was only yesterday.
But Masashi, on the other hand, didn’t show any such signs and acted cheerful as if he had just gotten over it,
“Oh, I’d heard about it from Lanra, but it’s hard to feel good when you’re being shown it. …… Well, congratulations to the both of you.”
“Oh, thank you, Sunajo-san.”
“I’ve decided to give up on being your girlfriend, just as Aito said.
“But you have to keep your promise to take me to the university.
“Yes, of course.”
I replied strongly. To be honest, I was relieved that my relationship with Masashi seemed to be continuing.
“Himuro-san, you often have to borrow boyfriends, isn’t that a good thing? After all, my life depends on it.
“Well, that’s …… fine, I’ll leave you alone.”
“Thank you. And also, I’ve set a goal for my new love life and I’d like you both to help me if you can.
Masashi said, baring her white teeth. I know he said he gave up on me, but after yesterday, it seems a little sad… No, no, no, no, this is something I shouldn’t think about. I should support Masa in his new love. Yeah, as a friend from now on.
Yes, of course.
Yes, anything I can do to help.
“Thank you, both of you. And as for my new romantic goal…”
Masashi broke off at that point and glanced at me, then smiled wryly and said…
“I’ve decided to become Aito’s wife.
Me and Ryouha were stunned and froze.
“Wait a minute, Masa said he’s giving up on me now…”
“Yes, I said that. I said I’m giving up on being your girlfriend. So instead, I’ve decided to skip a grade and aim to become your wife. You’ll cooperate with me as we agreed. Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
“So, how can I do that? Besides, Sunashiro-san, I’m sorry to tell you this, but Aito-kun and I are already a married couple, and even though it’s not legal, we’re already married in our hearts.
“Ah, that’s what that kind of thing is, isn’t it? The kind of thing that high school couples who just started dating get excited and write about it on social media. Then they don’t last half a year and it becomes black history.
“Aito, you’re not allowed to have a study session alone with Sunashiro-san, I, your wife, will never allow it!”
“I said I wouldn’t interfere earlier, but you’re going to break it. You’re the student council president, aren’t you?
“Oh, that’s just because I thought that since Sunashiro-san said she gave up, it was nothing more than a study session, so I reluctantly made that decision… ha! I didn’t think that what you were saying, that your life depended on it, was something in that direction from the very beginning. ……”
“Ha-ha-ha, of course it’s that way. After all, I have a real god of destiny in my life. I’m not going to give up just because my destiny has a girlfriend once. So, Aito…”
Suddenly, Masashi moved his face close to my ear.
Her whispery voice like a little devil made me blush unintentionally.
Seeing my reaction, Masashi smiled with satisfaction,
“Good, good. If she’s aware of you, that means you have a pulse. I’ll see you… at school.”
He left gallantly.
Leaving only Arashi here. …….
“Aito-kun no bakaaaa! I don’t know you anymore, cheater!
“Hey, hey Tajima-kun, what did you do to Himuro-san? Didn’t you go out with her?”
It was lunchtime. Aizawa, who bumped into me in the hallway, asked me curiously.
“What do you mean, what did you do?”
“Well, Himuro-san was asking Saeki-san, Ootori-san and others in class about how to break up with a boyfriend amicably without being resented. I was wondering if this was just her usual bad habit, or if something really happened.
“Seriously? ……. I got it. Thanks, Aizawa. Thanks for telling me.
You’re welcome. Well, to tell you the truth, I would have been happier if you had broken up with me. I’m the only one in the Himuro-san’s group that has been forming since the second semester, and I don’t have to be a freelance member. Ootori-san is dating Shiba-kun, too.
What, Aki-san and Shiba-kun? That’s new news to me. What’s up with Aizawa?
“Oh, I was just kidding about breaking up, Tajima-kun.”
Aizawa stuck out his tongue and laughed mischievously.
“I guess you’re right. The popular Aizawa is not the kind of guy who cares about being free or anything like that.
“Hmmm, I thought I just heard a thorn in your side. ……And besides, no matter how popular you are, if the person you like doesn’t take a shine to you, none of it means anything. I really envy you, Himuro-san.”
Saying this, Aizawa smiles a smile that reminds me of fragility.
An expression of melancholy. I felt something I shouldn’t have, so I decided to change the subject.
“Well, I thought during our study session the other day that Aizawa is actually more devastating than Masashi when it comes to English.”
“Ugh. …… you are right.”
“If you want, I’ll watch with Masa, so you can call on me anytime, like when we’re not doing club activities. You can always call on me when you’re not in the club, or when you’re not in the club.
“Ah…… okay, I’ll be relying on you.”
For a moment, I thought I had caught him off guard, but the next moment Aizawa shot me a dazzling smile.
“Oops, I’ll report this to Himuro-san. Tajima-kun has been asking out another girl after school.”
“Hey, how do you say that?”
And then the student council meeting after school.
When I opened the door of the student council room, Himuro was already working on his business with a cold expression on his face. It was the same scene as usual, except that Himuro was working in the reception area instead of the student council president’s seat…
“What is it? I’d like you to help me quickly, instead of just standing there.
Oh, yeah. Sorry.”
I put my luggage in the vice president’s seat and sat down next to the ice room instead of sitting in my own seat. There was a job for me.
In short, it was a love call from a naughty girl who wanted me to sit next to her.
The moment I sat down next to her, Ryouha finally softened her mouth. She’s so cute.
“By the way, I heard that Himuro was talking to a girl in class today about how to break up with her boyfriend in an amicable way.
I casually ask her as we work.
“Yes, it’s true. It’s important to be prepared for any eventuality. It would be a problem if Tajima-kun is still following me around when I break up with him, so it’s important to have the know-how to avoid such a situation. So it’s better to be prepared than to be worried.
“Indeed, you may have a point there.”
I just chuckled at her scornful face and went on with my work.
Then Ryouha glanced at me for a few seconds and began to cut in quietly, fiddling with her fingers.
“……………… Um, Aito? I think you seem to agree with my opinion,……, but I wonder if that’s okay. You are now being suggested to break up with the girl you love. You need to be more panicky. You need to make yourself more appealing so that it ends as a joke. Now, if you could just get it out of your system before it’s too late…”
“Panicky? …… You mean, like Ryouha just did?”
I love Ryouha who is getting flustered and impatient, and I can’t help but be mean to her. Especially when she says she’s my favorite girlfriend, it’s too much.
“Heh? …………Moo, Aito’s mean! Okay, if you’re so inclined, you’ll just have to wait and see. I’ll make you so captivated by me that you can’t help but get upset over every little thing.
Ryoha leaned her body against me, leaning her chair as close to me as she could. The scent of sweet shampoo and the soft, mmmmm feeling of Ryouha’s warmth gradually spread over me.
“This is a prelude to that. One day, I’ll suddenly stop the skinship and make Aito feel insecure. Hmmm, what a terrifying attack. Yes, it’s not because I’m a little lonely because of Aito’s lack of response or anything sweet like that. Please don’t misunderstand me.
What’s this, my girlfriend is so cute!
“By the way, Aito, we’re going to have sushi today to celebrate your mother’s release from the hospital. With the whole family.”
“Oh. Mom got tired of hospital food and requested us to have sushi.
“So, Aito, if it’s a family get-together, doesn’t that include me, your future wife, …… of course?
Without waiting for Ryouha’s shy words, I smile and tell her what she’s probably expecting me to say. She looked like she wanted to go there so badly during the summer vacation.
“Actually, I was hoping you’d say that,” I tell her, “so I called my mom before I came here. I thought maybe she would have responded by now… What’s this ……?
“What’s wrong, Aito? Maybe it was a bad idea… ……?”
“No, what was OK was OK, but …… it’s a little hard to explain in words.
I showed the screen of my phone to Himuro, who was anxious. There was a message on the screen…
<<I’ve invited Masa-chan to this family get-together as well. My mom thinks it’s fine to have two daughters these days. I think it would be fun to have two daughters in my old age.
Mom had sent a stamp with a happy V-sign along with her message. Mom, don’t tell me you still don’t fully approve of Ryoha? When I reported it yesterday, she congratulated me with a smile. …….
The student council meeting ended a little early today, while I managed to calm down the raging Himuro.
“Well, the student council will end at the end of this week, but what are you going to do in the second semester? I haven’t heard anything about that because I’ve been so busy, but… if you want to run for office, of course I’ll help you.”
I casually asked him on the way home from the school.
“No, I’m not interested in running for office. I’m not interested, so I’ll just take your offer. I think I’ve done all I can do. Besides… I don’t need such an excuse anymore, I can always be by your side. As Aito’s girlfriend.”
Ryouha smiled happily and hugged my arm tightly.
“But that’s why… you’ll always support me from now on, won’t you, Aito-kun♡?”
Thus, the romance strategy with the mischievous Himuro-san, who started with 100% likability, ended when his likability grew to 200,300%. The love affair with the wicked Himuro-san ended with a 200,300% likability rating.
From now on, a happy couple life with Himuro-san, who has a 1000% likability rating, will begin.
