Pasta, salad, fries, French toast, drinks, and cake for dessert...
A lot of plates were lined up on the table.
All of the above items were ordered by Hana for her own consumption. It seems that the phrase “burnt-eating” was not an exaggeration.
「...Hmm. As I thought, the food in such a place has a strong taste. I think I'm going to get heartburn」
「Are you okay? I'll help you if you want」
「First of all, you should eat your share of the meal first」
Chihiro's well-intentioned suggestion is lightly dismissed with a scowl.
Well, he ordered a berry mix pancake and a chocolate parfait for himself. Both of them are sweet enough to be considered as a meal, and if they were not accompanied by fresh iced tea, they would give him heartburn and he might not be able to finish them.
Actually, he was going to have a yakiniku donburi, but Hana asked him, "In that outfit?", so he had to give up the plan because Hana looked at him coldly.
「But still, Izumi kun, your idea is in another dimension, isn't it? You are introducing yourself as a different person dressed up as a woman. Do you have such a desire to transform yourself?」
「No, this is very embarrassing, you know」
Well, this cross-dressing is a practice run for the school festival.
After all, he had put aside his sense of shame to some extent because he was going to wear a maid's uniform in public later, however, he was able to endure it now because he was playing the role of "Misumi Chisato". Still, in order to be able to dress like this without any hesitation, one must have some kind of talent.
After all, the skirt is fluttery and difficult to move around in, and the lack of pockets on the clothes is very inconvenient.
Also, sometimes Chihiro was bothered by the eyes of men on the way to the movie theaters. This is most likely because they were looking at Hana who was standing next to him, not himself. He believes so.
As he was eating his pancake and parfait...
Hana, who seemed to be concentrating on her own meal, gave him a warning.
「You opened your mouth too wide. Please eat it in smaller pieces. And try to put it in your mouth without using your lips. You're ruining your pretty face」
As soon as she found out that Chisato was Chihiro, Hana took this harsh attitude.
But, Chihiro will obey the warning. He has to wear women's clothes at least for the next two days of the school festival.
「By the way...Mishuku-san, you don't only like Maria, but you like all girls, don't you? Is there a reason for that?」
When he broaches the subject, it made Hana pause the meal and glare at him.
「I don't think this is a topic for small talk. Well, I don't know exactly why. It's just something I've realized. It's just...」
「I started to dislike boys, maybe after I started liking girls. I guess I didn't like the idea of Maria-chan being played by a guy」
Again, Maria comes into the picture.
But to say that she is being played around means...
「Is that something about me?」
「Indeed. Izumi-kun, you are playing with Maria-chan's will without regard to hers」
While saying this, she stared at him coldly.
Apparently, that was a stupid question.
But then, Hana sighed and said, "But, it is not that".
「It was a long time ago. Besides, I don't think she actually got to the point of being played with. It's just my imagination」
Does it have anything to do with "that person"?
I was tempted to ask it, but that would have destroyed the current calm situation.
Also, she probably won't answer it even if asked.
As she picks up a couple of forks and lifts them up, Hana says to him.
「...Well, in that sense, it's a blessing in disguise that Maria-chan seems happy. I mean, you're better than most men, but that's all」
Is that a compliment?
Chihiro tilted his head but Hana said, "This conversation is over". It seems that she wants to have a normal chitchat with him.
「Oh, yeah. About the executive committee, what do you think of that second-year boy? I think he's thinking a little too much」
「Eh, who are you talking about?」
「What? That guy, you know, the one with a really nasty look in his eyes」
Surprisingly, the conversation was lively, although Hana mainly kept on talking.
And by the time the meal was over, the waiter cleared the dishes, and silence returned again. There was still some time left in the two hours that had been reserved when they entered the room.
「What shall we do? Do you want to sing something?」
Chihiro asked her. But Hana thought "Hmm" and then smiled.
Chihiro had a bad feeling about this, but there was no escape in the small private room, and Chihiro was driven into a corner of the sofa.
Hana took off her glasses and put it on the table with her body strangely close to Chihiro's. And it made him surprised.
「Chisato-chan, don't call me that. Please call me Hana-san properly」
He was about to say, "It's over now", but a slender finger closed his lips.
Her face then became close. Chihiro wonder if Hana have ever looked at him like this before, not at his order or Maria's request.
Also, the look she gave him is a feeling of "desire"?
But then, a chill runs down his spine. Probably, she is not trying to take away his ability or some other trick, rather this girl's S must be switched, and it made him can't escape.
She then kissed him.
It was a gentle touch. Her hand touches his shoulder softly, and her fingers and palms also crawl along the line of his body. There is no forceful touch, but his body naturally relaxes as she leads him. But――
She pushes him down on the sofa as she did when they entered the room. The stole comes off and falls on the floor, but Hana does not pay attention to it.
「Call me Hana-san, okay?」
She let out a sweet voice.
The whisper makes Chihiro's brain slow down and his thoughts go blank.
Something's wrong, something's not right.
Hana's attitude and the way she put him on the spot is so serious and sensual. He feels something soft and restraining in the clothes he is not used to. And under the influence of his behavior as "Misumi Chisato" until a little while ago, he feels a slightly more female-like sensation.
And this synergistic effect makes Chihiro unable to resist Hana.
...Of course, there is still a calm part of him in the corner of his mind.
He is able to reject her reckless demands, but at the same time, he is able to let her do whatever she wants to do just for this one moment. However, Chihiro decides to become "Misumi Chisato" as a part of the play.
