Chapter 19 Part 2
In the end, after knowing that going out was in the first place impossible, I returned back to my room.
Even so, my thoughts won’t change, I have no intention of accepting Elk’s offer.
However Elk is also stubborn, is she going to wait for my rationality to collapse, it’s troubling me now that she is waiting in my room.
And so, be both are simply relaxing on the sofa in room. ELk is drinking tea though.
Right now, it is a deadlock situation.
Elk is still dressed in her pajama from before, I am facepalming while filling『Ice』magic in my hand to keep my rationality while cooling down my head physically.
Yeah, it feels good.
「……How about you stop doing that? You’ll get frostbite?」
「It’s fine It’s fine this much won’t hurt. My face is also hot right now」
「*Sigh*……Ah, That’s right, can you cool this down?」
Saying that she puts forwards her cup with brewed tea inside it. Ah,so you want to drink cold tea.
I don’t have any reason to refuse, so I took the cup with my hand filled with『Ice』magic and it cooled down in just 5 seconds.
I can turn in into ice using the water in atmosphere, but she isn’t wanting that so I hand her the cooled down tea.
Still awkward. This situation. Really awkward.
Situation like this-with awkward atmosphere-, I have experienced in my previous life too.
Something like having troubles talking normally like I had.
Like having money involved in the lending and borrowing between friends,
and getting merits from that, the attitude changes.
Or something like confessing the girl you like who is also your best friends, but end up with a splendid failure, and don’t know how to talk to each other from now on.
……There was 1 idiot, who did that on the first day of excursion trip, and the rest all days ended up with awkward atmosphere drifting.
The talk before is just like two best friends, recognise each other as other gender person, and are feeling strange kind of estrangement. This situation right now is just like that.
It’s even more troublesome than the time I confronted that big-serpent in day. The atmosphere is unbearably too bad.
Moreover, if I somehow endured the gazes of people in the entranceway and reached Red-light District.
After that, the awkward atmosphere will not subside but increase in power level.
In that case, I who care about friendship more, have to patch up with her, let her understand my reasons, then go to Red-light District, and still not create the awkward situation, this is quite an ideal shape but……what the fucking impossible mission I’m talking about.
Just in which world, would be a girl, who would smile and send the man who rejected her to red-Light District. Now that I about it, that just can’t happen.
Elk created a stir in this uncomfortable situation.
「Honestly, it was unexpected. I surely thought I would get 2 answers」
「……Did I look that much perverted?」
「Not that, but it should be a normal reaction」
Saying that, she sighs. And takes one sip of iced tea.
「I mean there are more people with that kind of thinking?」
「That is also included, but in this case, if by chance, it is demanded by man, a considerable price should be there. I’m repeating, but I have been saved a lot of times by you?」
During first meeting, cafe, during the time with goblins……Elk starts counting on her fingers. [ET: Idk where did Cafe come . Cafe say hello. Cafe: hello~, the author was retard to type me here. I never came in this story, yet]
And also adds, that all were life-threatening.
Fundamentally, the occupation called adventurers have work where they have to put life in danger and are serious when the talk comes to rewards and scold at uneven partition of rewards. It’s natural that they expect the reward for the work they have done.
But there isn’t that general concept in me, so it’s hard to think about it too.
She also said, I saved her life, forgave her for her sins, and still not demand anything, am I some sort of damn man with noble virtue. It would be better if you demanded for my body or money.
Well, it’s not like I don’t understand her point. Elk has strong feelings and other stuff, so she would have stronger sense of responsibility than other people.
But, if I did it,
Then though Elk would feel relief, but I would feel sense of guilty, both ways, it would end up awkward from now on. Confirmed.
It’s repeating but, I’m not good with offers like, which involve……selling of body.
It’s not becoming the solution to my fundamental problem, so no matter……
「……Well, if you’re like that. Then it’s fine」
「I want to repay the debt, but I have no intention to be pushy about it. It’s trouble for you that way. However……」
Elk drinks all of the tea in her cup, and briskly comes walking up to me.
And, instinctively I put my guard up, but she touches my cheeks with her hand, and disappears from my vision,
SFX: ——Chyuu [Do you need to know?]
I feel somewhat soft feeling on my cheeks.
「……？ !? !?!?!?」
「I-It won’t hurt to thi-this much, right?」
Elk speaks as such while blushing and stuttering.
My mind is steadily understanding what just happened.
But……somewhere in my mind, it feels like it would be better if I don’t understand it.
To Elk it might be just some mischievous play with some compromise.
No, well compared to that, doing a normal kiss is only lukewarm thing.
If after that, she is blushing, it’s going to be get critically bad.
Would it be easier to understand the variety of attack changed from『Woman』to『Girl』, even more briefly her appearance changed from『Erotic』to『Cute』.
In addition Elk is, umm……I never paid much attention, but her eyes filled with her feelings, her sometimes seen disgusted eyes, her heart having clear opinions, her appearance and personality, is quite to my liking.
The attack of『Cute』is more nasty than her『Erotic』attack. It feels like desire and many more things, are hitting the roots of my brain.
And in addition to that,
「Y-You hate that thing that I’m compromising and giving this much? It’s not like……I wanted to do it on cheek, it’s due to compromise! D-Don’t misunderstand me.」
……Just like that, it becomes my first day seeing a『Tsundere』,
This ain’t compromise, but lethal final attack. Dodge impossible……
「!? Eh? W-M-Minato!? Wai, What happened suddenly!?」
Getting a critical hit with a surprise attack while I was defenseless, having my rationality cornered, hand over the consciousness, and fall face down.
I fall along with Sofa, while making a lot of noise.
「W-What!? Why is the person who was about to go to Red-Light District, falling down with just this much!?」
You’re completely right.
But, if it will end with much without crossing over the line, isn’t it all good…….
……I was naive to even think that.
