Lunch Break


「…………」

    Fu~~ It’s finally lunch break… Compared to the classroom filled with numerous classmates, this convenience store that’s scarcely patroned by customers is as I expected, better for a『loner』like me to relax in。Now then, what shall I have for lunch today… My budget is around 500 yen. Personally, I’ll like to buy rice, meat and a beverage with it. (Andou-kun)


「…………」 *stares*


   Next to the register, there’s the standard trio『nikuman』,『anman』and『chikuwaman』… Then, on the other side, there’s the standard『karaage』,『oden』and『yakitori』… (Andou-kun)


「…………」 *stares*


   The bento corner over there has the standard『onigiri』,『sandwich』and all sorts of bentos… The most notable bentos there has got to be the『soboro bento』,『karubi bento』and『omurice』(Andou-kun)


「…………」 *stares*

「-ee~~」


  For drinks, there’s『green tea』,『black tea』and『coffee』… Yosh! I’ve decided! (Andou-kun)


「…………」

   Fufufu! The theme for today is to go『a little bit luxurious』! Let’s go all out on the menu…

『Karubi Bento』 350 Yen

『Yakitori(Salted Bonjiri)』 80 Yen

『Carbonated drink(250 Milliletres)』 30 Yen

『Seasoned tamago』 60 Yen



THIS IS IT!!! FUAHAHAHAHA! How’s that? I’ve come up with the strongest combination with these. For lunch, I’ll have『rice』and『meat』- the most essential part of the meal, accompanied by『yakitori』as my last snack and a matching『carbonated drink』to go along! To cap it off, the『seasoned tamago』as the finisher! Ahhhhhhhhh! This is the perfect menu! (Andou-kun)


「Now, I’ll head over as usual towards the bench at the vacant parking lot… and dig in!」



   First, the karubi bento―― (Andou-kun)


「…………」 *chomp*


   … OoooooOOo! The sensation of the rice texture that spreads across my empty mouth which had been devoid of rice for a while… was the『meat juices!』Moreover, that high-class flavor that permeates my heart is most evidently『salt!』As expected, nothing’s better than salt on karubi~~It’s a perfectttttttttttttttttttttt match with the rice and carries the meal forward~ (Andou-kun)


「……」 *gulp*


  Then, up next is my『yakitori』snack and『carbonated drink』… (Andou-kun)


「…………」 *chomp* … *gulp gulp*!

     Guaa――――aAAHHHHH! I can feel how soft and crunchy this bonjiri is as I chew on it!

And after that, the stimulus of the『carbonated drink』that throws all the lingering flavors forcibly into my stomach!? This is a direct hit to my still starving stomach――Ugh! (Andou-kun)


「…………Fuu」


   Nah~ That was delicious… Yosh, let’s dig into the finisher,『seasoned tamago!』(Andou-kun)


「……」*grins broadly*


   Yes, my meal has come to an end, having eaten to my heart’s content but the inside of my mouth is lonely, yearning for just a little more of the flavors from the bento and the yakitori that this timing works! With this『seasoned tamago』as the finisher, my stomach will feel like it has『eaten』!(Andou-kun)


「…………」*chomp*! *chew chew* …



  De……LICIOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! To be able to gnaw and chew to the extent that the flavors of the seasoned tamago spreads inside my mouth!

   Now all that remains is the flavor of the seasoned tamago inside my mouth as I moisten my throat occassionally with the carbonated drink… (Andou-kun)


「…………」 *flips pages*



In the remaining time that’s left, I’ll read my『light novel』… Fuu, this is the best use of this hour. (Andou-kun)



Andou-kun’s lunch break was surprisingly fulfilling.

 


Footnotes:

Krrizis & Me3: Didn’t he went over his budget!? That does not total 500 yen!

Also, Andou-kun would be excellent as a Shokugeki no Soma judge!
