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

Daininki Idol na Classmate ni Natsukareta, Isshou Hatarakitakunai Ore


Act 3 - The School Festival


After Rintaro and the others' live performance, there's a confession by Kakihara-kun on stage.
The three of us quietly listen to his confession.

"――――How nice, being young." (Kanon)

Hearing the cheers at the moment of his successful confession, Kanon murmurs.
It sounds a bit like an old lady would say.

"Rei, you thought I sounded like an old lady just now, didn't you?" (Kanon)

......Is she an esper?

"...Hmph, well, whatever." (Kanon)

Kanon, with a somewhat sullen expression, settles into the prepared chair.
Without looking at me and Mia, she resumes with a question.

"Do you feel envious of them?" (Kanon)

Those words are surely directed at what they had just experienced on stage, something that could be called youthness.
I glance at Mia for a moment.
Mia looks at me with a troubled expression, then returns her gaze to Kanon.

"...I do. Because it's something we can't experience right now." (Mia)

Mia's words are true.
No one of us regrets becoming an idol.
We're well aware that not everyone can become one, and we're proud of it.

――――But still.

I can't lie about feeling envious of them.

"We became idols and gained a lot, but at the same time, we lost a lot too. Even though I know I sacrificed it myself...... but I can't help feeling envious." (Mia)
"......Well, they do say the grass is always greener on the neighbor's lawn. I agree with that." (Kanon)

I nod in agreement with their words.
We didn't sacrifice our normal high school lives because we wanted to.
Even if we sacrificed it, it was because we had something we wanted to achieve.

"Rei, Mia... how long do you think we'll continue being idols?" (Kanon)

Mia and I choke on our words in response to Kanon's question.
It's a topic we have been thinking about for a long time, but no one has brought it up as a topic of discussion.
When, will we "retire"――――.

"I...... I don't think I'll retire any time soon. I want to become an actress overseas someday, but that's still a long way off." (Mia)

Mia has an audition for a movie soon.
Both I and Kanon support her, and I believe she'll definitely pass.

"What about you, Rei? Have you thought about when you'll retire?" (Kanon)
"I... " (Rei)

My dream is to do a large-scale live performance at Nippon Budokan.
That dream hasn't changed since my debut.
When that dream comes true, I'm sure I'll――――.

"Hmm? I see, you've made up your mind, huh?" (Kanon)
"Huh?" (Rei)
"We're talking about retiring. You don't seem to be hesitating at all." (Kanon)

Certainly, I might as well say that I've already made up my mind.

"If I could perform a live performance at Nippon Budokan... at the very least, I think I'd be satisfied." (Rei)
"At Nippon Budokan? With where we are now, there's a possibility it could happen within a year, you know?" (Kanon)
"Yes, but――――" (Rei)

Honestly, I'm still undecided about whether to retire or not.
I still don't know what will remain for me once I'm no longer an idol.

"Is it okay, Rei?" (Mia)
"Huh?" (Rei)
"If you're not an idol anymore, you might not be able to support Rintaro-kun, you know?" (Mia)

As I'm taken aback, Mia continues with a serious expression.

"Rintaro-kun's dream is to focus on housework without working and support the woman who becomes his wife for life, right? So, the person becoming his wife needs to have a decent income." (Mia)
"That's... I think that's true." (Rei)
"You should be able to continue working in the entertainment industry after retiring as an idol. But it's not certain. There's a real possibility that your popularity might decline and you might lose your earnings." (Mia)

I, I can't say anything.
If I were told I didn't have a resolve, that would be enough, but there might be a part of me that still thought of myself as a child.

"――――I already make up my resolve." (Mia)

Mia's unwavering gaze captures me.
I was just bewildered, not understanding the true meaning behind those eyes.

"I'm resolved to support Rintaro-kun for life. I'll definitely succeed as an actress and make sure he'll live a life without any discomfort." (Mia)
"Y-you... isn't that...?" (Kanon)

Kanon looks at Mia with unbelieving eyes.
So do I.
I never expected Mia will develop the same feelings as me――――.

"...I feel bad for you, Rei, but I can't lie to myself... or rather, I don't want to hide it in front of you."(Mia)
"Mia..." (Rei)
"I also――――" (Mia)

――――love Rintaro-kun.

"!" (Rei)

It's not like I didn't anticipate this would happen.

Sometimes mean, unfriendly, and lazy.
Despite acting that way, but actually kind and caring, thoughtful.
Like when he was in his butler uniform, if he tidied himself up properly, you can see that his face is more handsome than you'd imagine, also he regularly exercises, so he's surprisingly muscular.
When he smiles, he looks like a little boy and it's cute, and his hands are big but his fingers are slender and sexy.
He's good at cooking, and he's really good at cleaning and laundry as well.
And most of all――――just being with him makes me feel at ease.
With all of those good points, there's no way I'm the only one who's fallen for someone like Rintaro.

Although I should be the only one who knows all of those.

"I don't think Rintaro-kun sees me as a romantic interest yet right now. So I'm going to go more aggressive from now on. More than you, Rei." (Mia)

Mia's face is somehow dazzling as she confidently declares this.
The impatience I've been holding back overflowed, squeezing my heart.

"......Whatever you do, but it would be really lame if your discord led to disbandment. Please avoid that, okay?" (Kanon)
"Don't worry, Kanon. Even if Rintaro-kun chooses Rei over me, I won't resent Rei." (Mia)
"Hmm, then...... what about you, Rei?" (Kanon)

Kanon's gaze turns to me, and I can't help but flinch.
I. How will I be?
Will I be able to remain calm when I see Mia and Rintaro walking together?

(......Probably, no.)

My chest tightened even more.
I love Rintaro and Mia.
I don't want to fight with Mia, and I really don't want MilleSta to fall apart.
Can I handle it like Mia does――――

"Fufu, a group splitting up over just one guy...... it's such a cliché." (Kanon)
"Kanon......" (Rei)
"It's so cliché that it's not even funny." (Kanon)

After quickly finishing her disguise, Kanon stands up and walks towards the exit.

"Even if things go sour between you two, I won't allow disbandment." (Kanon)
"Huh...?" (Rei)
"Knowing him, if he knows that MilleSta disbands because of him, he'll feel responsible and distance himself from us." (Kanon)

It's entirely possible if it's Rintaro.
Hence, we absolutely must avoid that.

"I probably, have some feelings for him too...... though not as strong as you two." (Kanon)
"...Kanon too?" (Rei)
"Don't get me wrong, I'm not as into him as you two are, okay? Among the opposite sex, I think Rintaro is the best guy――――that's all." (Kanon)

I can't help but connect it to feelings of love, but it seems different for Kanon.
I feel a little relieved.

"Anyway, Rintaro's life right now is mostly dependent on you, right? You're even paying the rent." (Kanon)
"Yes." (Rei)
"If that's the case, then we have to take good care of him until he finds someone else, or until either of you has a clear plan to support him for life. At least until then, disbanding is absolutely out of the question." (Kanon)

Certainly, that's true.

"Anything is fine at this point, but don't be irresponsible. I believe in both of you." (Kanon)
"...I know it. Thank you, Kanon." (Rei)
"Hmph." (Kanon)

Turning away, Kanon leaves backstage.
It's about time for the next performers to arrive.
So we need to leave soon.

"Well, I guess I'll head home now. I only stayed because I wanted to see Rintaro's big moment." (Mia)
"Mia...... I......" (Rei)
"......You don't need to rush to give an answer, you know." (Mia)
"What do you mean?" (Rei)
"As long as we're idols, I don't think he'll date either of us. I think you understand that better." (Mia)

Mia's words make sense.
Rintaro is trying to support us, and he really wants to avoid anything that might break "Mille-feuille Stars".
Maybe the real battle will come when we are no longer idols.

By then, I need to find a new path.

"Phew... Sorry for suddenly stirring things up today. I'll let you take over from here, as an apology. Well, it's not really an apology, but what I mean is, I'll leave the rest to you." (Mia)
"The rest?" (Rei)
"The closing party isn't over yet, right? Enjoy it with Rintaro-kun. I'm not happy about it, but I'll make my move from tomorrow." (Mia)

With a challenging smile, Mia, in a simple disguise, leaves backstage.
Mia really is so cool after all.
But that's exactly why I don't want to lose. From the bottom of my heart, that's what I think.

"......I have to go." (Rei)

I have to see Rintaro.
Feeling that impulse, I have already jumped out of the backstage area.

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.
