『I really like Andou-kun!』



Some time later after that, I’m rolling around with excess embarrassment in my home kitchen.


「Uwaaaaaahh! I’m stupid, stupid, stupid, stupiiid~~…… Why, why did I say something like that…… Even worse, in a panic I asked Andou-kun to come over to my house……」


Fortunately my parents are not at home right now, but Andou-kun is still in my room. I said that I would bring something to drink from downstairs so I need to go back fast…… But, how did such a slip of tongue―― not really, even if it’s vague I know the reason.

The words that I had originally meant to say at that time was……


『I really like light novels, as much as Andou-kun!』


But because at that time I was extremely nervous, those words became――


『I really like (light novels, as much as) Andou-kun!』


Just like this, I had omitted out the words inside the parenthesis!

Right! It’s just because I was too nervous and talked too fast, in a miraculous accident I omitted a certain part of it. By no means what came out of my mouth were my real feelings, it’s absolutely impossible! I mean, it’s not like I 『like』 Andou-kun in the opposite sex way!

That’s right. Rather, if it’s about love, at least it must be him who falls for me! Just because I decided to stop hiding that I like light novels to him, it’s not like it’s relevant with I like him or not. In the first place, I’m not falling for him. If I said it’s no then it’s absolutely impossible! No means no!


「……Alright, I’ve thought about it enough. First I have to carry out three missions.

First, I have to make Andou-kun understand that my words at the bookstore was a slip of tongue even with brute force.

And then, after I solved the misunderstanding I will confess that I like light novels.

In the end, it’s not like I’ll fall in love with him.

Excellent, it’s flawless. Ah, I forgot! I’ve said that I’d bring something to drink, what should I take…… Andou-kun, he’s not allergic to milk, right? But, he might dislike it…… Then, how about durian juice! Ah, but this one has quite a strong smell, it has to be something else…… In that case, heartleaf juice? But even then, what should I do if it’s still not fitting with Andou-kun’s preference. Especially when he came to my house, I want to entertain him properly…… Eh! It’s, it’s not like I care about what he wants to drink! I, I mean I’m definitely not being conscious of him at all! Right, for someone like him a 100% pure squeezed sweet apple juice is enough!」


But, I wonder why for the sake of detaining Andou-kun I had to take him home?

Hmーーmm…… Aah, I remember!


『……Fue! I–I–I–I, what did I just—–wait! It’s wrong! Just now I didn’t say it right, or rather I didn’t have enough practice……noooooooooo! What have I blurted ouuuuuuuut!』

『A, Asakura-san……in other words, that was a verbal slip-up? It, it’s okay! I–I–I, I’m a loner, therefore I won’t have any strange misunderstandings? T—To begin with, it’s impossible for that Asakura-san to like a loner like me! Well–well then! I’ll leave first—』


That’s right, just like that! I don’t know why, but his words at that time 『it’s impossible for that Asakura-san to like a loner like me!』 irritated me very much. Good grief…… Now that I think about it again, who did he mean with  『THAT Asakura-san』! I’m not a random Student A that usually appears in anime! Certainly, I must have unconsciously snapped at that word. Yep, that’s right. Definitely, it’s like that.


And then, after I’m sure about it, I take the juice for the two of us back to my own room.

「I’ve made you wait.」

Somehow remembering it again made me irritated.

As if to vent my irritation, I put down the glasses of juice in front of him with 『bang!』 and opened up my mouth.

「So, shall we have a talk……」

I, definitely it’s not like I’m falling for you!

  1. Now, the question is, will she realize she sounded really tsundere from the light novel experience she had?

  2. Correction. She realized that she SOUNDED like a tsundere but she doesn’t realize that she IS a tsundere. Difference~

  3. Asakura-Chan’s heart : Keep telling yourself that. I’ll just take over your mouth again!

  4. Thank you for the chapter! Man, she really is a tsundere. And you say you like light novels? I mean, you were even obsessively wondering what he would want to drink!
