Chapter 127 – Irregular Firepower
“Mouー, I lost 800 followers because of Tsuyu-chan’s confession.”
“The band channel has also lost 500 at once.”
“The news sites are screaming in outrage. I feel sorry for everyone.”
“Everyone already has boyfriends aside from me, you girls have no right to complain.”
Tsuyuri responded to her bandmates’ complaints with a firm attitude.
The members of the band Susume Girls are currently drunk. They are peering at Tsuyuri with their cheeks flushed.
They are in the middle of a launch party to celebrate their band for achieving the highest rating.
The party was held in a rented space near the live house, and some people were invited.
Close friends, boys they knew, a friend of their friends, a friend of their friend’s friends and so on. From Tsuyuri’s point of view, most of them were strangers.
Though Tsuyuri is a sociable person despite her quiet demeanor and emotionless nature, attending a party full of strangers was a little tiring for her.
If Tsuyuri was honest, she wanted to go to Haruka’s house right away without attending the party, but she couldn’t neglect her friends, so she reluctantly joined.
“Yoー, Tsuyuri. Do you drink?”
With a glass of alcohol in his hand, Shun placed an arm around Tsuyuri’s shoulder and hugged her.
Raising her eyebrows, Tsuyuri brushes off Shun’s arm casually.
“Hey, that was some kind of a joke, right?”
“What are you talking about?”
“The pick throwing.”
Pick throwing. An act where one throws a guitar pick towards the target while emitting heart marks, is famous for being used as a way to confess or to express love.
“Oi oi oi. Haru’s a no go. He’s already going out with Yunika.”
“I don’t care.”
At Tsuyuri’s nonchalant words, Shun’s smile faded.
“…. What’s wrong with you guys? What’s so great about that guy?”
“It doesn’t concern you.”
“Hey, Tsuyuri. Will you go out with me?”
Shun gave a fake smile and approached Tsuyuri head on. Tsuyuri stared at him at told him these words.
“I won’t. I’m going out with Haruka.”
At Tsuyuri’s response, Sun lost his expression again.
His attitude looked a little scary to Tsuyuri.
“Sigh, I see… You really are strange.”
Shun pulled back exasperatedly and offered a glass to Tsuyuri.
“Here, drink. I haven’t sipped on it yet.”
Saying this, Shun took a new glass from the table beside him and pours alcohol on it.
“Good work today. Cheers.”
They clunk their glasses lightly and sip their drinks at the same time.
Tsuyuri thought that the drink was good, but it felt like her throat was burning from drinking it.
[Security alert: High alcohol content detected…96%.]
Tsuyuri instructed the security software to break down the alcohol, the software immediately complied.
“Let me, Tsuyuri.”
Shun took Tsuyuri’s empty glass and filled it again.
Tsuyuri took the glass and gulps it down in one gulp.
Tsuyuri felt like she was drinking magma. She emptied the glass with a frown on her face.
“Thanks for the drink.”
Tsuyuri placed the glass down and left.
Shun tried to follow her, but he was stopped by a group of girls he doesn’t know.
“Shun-kun, let’s drink over here.”
The other girls in the party tried to get Shun’s attention, but he lightly brushed them off.
The point was not getting Tsuyuri drunk and have her taken home by another man.
But, Shun didn’t know.
It turned out that Tsuyuri had installed an expensive security software program that has the ability to break down alcohol.
No matter how much 96% alcohol he made Tsuyuri drink, she will not get drunk unless she intends to do so.
Shun followed Tsuyuri around while shaking off the other girls. He was getting frustrated by the fact there were no signs of Tsuyuri getting drunk.
No matter how much he made Tsuyuri drunk, she simply doesn’t get drunk.
Tsuyuri’s emotionless face and blank cheeks remain the same as usual.
Tsuyuri remained sober.
Even though Tsuyuri drank a lot of various kinds of alcohol, her demeanor didn’t change at all.
It was when the first party was about to end and there was talk of an after party that Shun noticed.
“Tsuyuri, you’re breaking down alcohol, aren’t you?”
“You know, it’s not good to do that at a party like this. You should loosen up with us a little bit. We’re the only ones getting drunk and looking like idiots over here.”
Shun was completely drunk, but the light of reason was still shining in his eyes.
“I have something to do later.”
Shun was irritated by Tsuyuri’s dismissive attitude.
The other members of Susume Girls already have boyfriends. But in Shun’s perspective, they seemed to be down for it if he pushed them a little.
The other girls attending the party were also the same. Shun was confident that he can take them home without getting them drunk.
However, things aren’t working out with Tsuyuri.
Neither Shinku, Yunika, Reika, nor Tsuyuri were responding well to Shun.
During adolescence, a person grows up by making mistakes. But to Shun, he was moving forward in his life without making such blunders.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Shun’s current problem was the first time he has faced a hurdle.
“Hey, Tsuyuri… I’m in love with you, go out with me.”
With the help of the alcohol in his system, Shun grabbed Tsuyuri by the shoulders and pressed closer to her.
The smell of alcohol wafted from Shun’s mouth. Tsuyuri turned her head away with a frown.
Tsuyuri pushed Shun’s chest vigorously, shoving him away from her.
The two of them instantly drew the attention from the other atendees, all of them wondered what was going on.
Shun was still drunk, but he still has enough reason to sense the stares of those around him. He quietly back away.
He understood that going any further will only disgrace him.
“Suit yourself… You’ll regret it later.”
“I don’t care.”
Tsuyuri said coldly as she left the venue, telling her close friends that she was going home.
The night breeze cools Tsuyuri’s skin, a total opposite from the party venue.
With the address sent by Haruka, Tsuyuri commuted to the Obi household by car.
It was quite late, even though Tsuyuri left before the first party ended.
Finally, she will be together with Haruka, Tsuyuri thought.
Tsuyuri was still a virgin in the real world, but she will dedicate herself to Haruka tonight.
Though Haruka has distanced himself from her by putting her confession onhold, it gave Tsuyuri time to cool down and think about what she wanted with Haruka. In the end, Tsuyuri still hoped to be with him.
Tsuyuri had never doubted that Haruka was the one whom she was destined for.
Singing songs with Haruka, teaching him how to play an instrument, spending a day in Haruka’s arms. Everything Tsuyuri thought of was so lovely to her that she felt a sense of security and satisfaction, she knew well that she could never get the same thing from any other man.
Finally, Tsuyuri has arrived.
Tsuyuri unlocked the door of the Obi household using the access key that Haruka had given her in advance.
Tsuyuri’s small voice called out Haruka.
From the living room, Tsuyuri can hear happy voices.
Girls’ voices specifically. They belong to Miyako and the others.
Tsuyuri opened the door and meets Ria first.
Ria’s cheeks were red and the corners of her eyes are downcast, as if she’s been drinking.
At the kitchen counter, Tsuyuri saw Yunika and Miyako talking.
And the most important one, Haruka…
“Obi-kun. Here’s a refill desu.”
“Ehー? Can’t you give it to me by mouth, Reika-san?”
“Okay. Ehehe. There’s no helping it if it’s Obi-kun.”
Haruka was completely drunk and his face was bright red.
Reika poured more alcohol into Haruka using her mouth.
Next to Haruka was Shinku, who was also drunk while leaning against him.
Tsuyuri was still not yet accustomed to complicated relationships. To her, the current situation was very unusual.
