Househusband-wannabe Boy and Idol Girl - 27

A Very Popular Idol Classmate Has Taken a Liking to Me, A Person Who Doesn't Want to Work for Whole Life.

Daininki Idol na Classmate ni Natsukareta, Isshou Hatarakitakunai Ore


Act 1 - The Hungry Idol Part


I was standing in the middle of a crowded and noisy party hall. 

AAH, it's that dream again, huh――――

Thinking that, I just look at the same scene as before.
The conversation between fathers.
A small misdeed by mine and the girl.
And when it was over, the dream was also over.

"――ro――――Rintaro!" (Rei)

I felt my name being called, and I slowly opened my eyes.
The first thing I saw was a golden curtain. Then I quickly realize that it was her hair.

"Rei......?" (Rintaro)
"I'm back. Are you okay?" (Rei)
"Ee, Y-yeah......." (Rintaro)

Apparently, I had fallen asleep on the sofa as soon as I got home.
Because I slept in my uniform, it got a little wrinkled.

"I'll have to iron it later....... Sorry, what time is it now?" (Rintaro)
"It's about 19:00." (Rei)
"Ah......, sorry, I couldn't get food ready. Can you wait for a while? I can make udon or pasta if you want." (Rintaro)
"Udon is good then. To be honest...... I'm not that hungry today either." (Rei)
"......I see." (Rintaro)

Rei's expression was somewhat lackluster.
Maybe something happened during the tripartite meeting.

"Wait here for a moment. it'll be ready in about fifteen minutes." (Rintaro)
"Got it, and thanks as always." (Rei)
"That's the deal. So, don't worry about it." (Rintaro)

I got up and headed for the kitchen.
I took out two frozen udon noodles, defrosted and then boiled them, and made a noodle soup base.
I put little grilled scallions and fried tofu on top, and it was ready.
I placed the bowl in front of Rei who was sitting on the couch and put her chopsticks on it.

"It's ready." (Rintaro)
"It smells so good." (Rei)
"If you want a second, just let me know. The udon is still ready." (Rintaro)
"All right. Then, I'll dig in." (Rei)

I sat down next to her, took the bowl my share, and sipped the udon.
Yup, it tastes soothing.
The scallions were fragrant and the fried tofu oozed with juice on each bite.
It wasn't as delicious as I had hoped, but the gentle taste gradually soothed my mind.

After we finished our dinner, we lined up on the couch and started watching TV.
It wasn't that there was anything we wanted to watch.
We just turned it on randomly to give ourselves some breaks.
On the screen, there was a young comedian who was wowing the studio. I've been seeing this guy a lot lately――――I thought, and glancing sideways at Rei's face.

"Is your lack of appetite related to...... that problem you were mentioning earlier." (Rintaro)
"Mm...... How did you know?" (Rei)
"It's just a hunch, that's all. But I've rarely seen you so brooded over, so I figured you might be." (Rintaro)
"......was right." (Rei)

A sigh leaked out.
If that's the case, there's nothing I can do about it.
The date had made it clear that there was nothing I could do to help.

"My father is coming to see the next live concert." (Rei)
"...... huh." (Rintaro)
"My father has always been opposed to my idol activities. He's always wanted me to quit." (Rei)

Rei kept her face downcasted and crossed her fingers on her thighs.

"If I fail and embarrass myself at the upcoming concert, he will probably not allow me to be an idol anymore. I'll go back to being a normal girl, and someday I'll be forced to marry someone who will benefit the family. That's what...... scares me so much." (Rei)

Rei seemed to be under a different kind of pressure than Kanon.
I can understand why her father was against her becoming an idol.
Idols are likely to be involved in hazardous situations, and moreover in this day and age, their lives could be ruined by the flames of an untrue rumor. How can he not worry about his daughter who goes through life in such a world?

"I've felt a lot of pressure in the past. But this time it's different. The thought of my father seeing me right before his eyes...... makes me nervous, even though I still have almost two weeks to go." (Rei)
"You can't...... afford to fail, yes?" (Rintaro)

Rei nodded helplessly at my words.

It is true that there is nothing I can do about this problem.
The only way to solve this problem is for Rei to overcome this pressure and make the concert a success.

"I don't really understand those situations where you'd feel that kind of pressure, but...... I don't think Rei, in her usual self, will ever fail." (Rintaro)
"My usual, self......." (Rei)
"I know it's a difficult thing to overcome. The only thing I can help you is to keep your daily life as usual at least." (Rintaro)

The food I cook, the way we interact with each other. I don't think they all have any special meaning. But at the very least, I'm going to make sure that you don't feel any pressure in your life.
No matter how hard I try, that's all I can do.

"Mmm. That's enough. I know better than anyone that in the end, I have to take care of myself. But I'm very happy that you care about me so much like that." (Rei)
"...... I see." (Rintaro)

I couldn't think of anything thoughtful to say.
Only two weeks left until the concert.
I could only pray for the success of Rei and the others in the upcoming concert.


When Rei returned to her room, the time was 23:30.
Tomorrow is a Saturday holiday, so I was not in a hurry to go to bed early.
But in the afternoon, I'll be working on another short story for Yuzuki-sensei that will be included in a special issue――――

"I can only do, huh." (Rintaro)

I muttered to myself as I ironed my uniform.
When I was little, I used to feel like I could do anything, just like the heroes on the TV. It's called a sense of versatility.
But now, I've lost that feeling.
I have learned the reality and the limits.

Kanon's problems, Kakihara's problems, and Rei's problems were all beyond my capabilities.

And my worries must also be something they couldn't do anything about.
In such cases, it was no longer justifiable to intervene.
If you couldn't solve the problem as a result of poking your head into it, it'd probably only going to cause more pain for both sides.

"...... Haaa~." (Rintaro)

One big sigh leaked from my mouth.
At the same time, a LINE notification arrived on the screen of my smartphone.
I felt a sense of déjà vu as I checked it out and saw the name "Ugawa Mia" shown on it.

[Can I bother to come over to your place now? I need to talk to you for a minute.] (Mia)

It was déjà vu all over again――――

I read her LINE and flicked through the letters to reply.
I couldn't just accept Kanon but then rejected Mia.

[Okay. I'll leave the door open, then.] (Rintaro)
[Thanks. I'll be right there.] (Mia)

The reply came in less than a few tens of seconds, and our exchanges on LINE were over.
I went to the front door and unlocked it.
I walked back to the kitchen and started to brew some coffee, just like I did with Kanon.

I knew she liked it black, just exactly like me.
After all, I somehow feel a strong affinity to Mia.......

At a certain time, there are creatures that walk by two feet. These creatures can be divided into two by gender. These creatures are surprisingly able to pick something using things called hands.
And on a certain day, two of these creatures meet.

"Halloo~ I am Bujangga, ndesu! Nice to meet you!"
"Y, yes. Nice to meet you too, I am Fuurawan."
"Fuurawan-chan ka? Ii no namae."
