Conversation Between S-rank Beauties Volume 2 Chapter 2 part 3

If she wants him to be his usual self, then there’s no need to feel pressured.
 
As they reached the sixth floor, Nayu made her way to the game center corner.
 
“Alright, as promised, I’ll keep you company.”
 
“Yeah…”
 
And so, Haru agreed to accompany Nayu for her leisure, but…
 

 
“Hey, hey Nayu-san!? The kid’s pulling!”
 
This happened while they were playing a medal game.
 
Initially, they wanted to have fun without spending much money, so they opted for a medal game. Currently, they were playing a fishing-themed medal game.
 
Perhaps because it was the weekend, there were several kids playing the same medal game.
 
The kids looked at Nayu with interest, admiration, respect, or perhaps even disbelief.
 
It’s not surprising.
 
Nayu, wearing sunglasses, was reeling in fish faster than anyone else at the scene, which led to her monopolizing the fish.
 
As a result, the fish belonged exclusively to Nayu.
 
Seeing Nayu’s enthusiasm and effort, Haru could only smile wryly.
 
“How many medals did you manage to get, Haru-san?”
 
“Nayu-san, you’re putting too much effort… I’m almost out of medals.”
 
“Is that so? Then you can have some of mine…”
 
Nayu followed Haru’s gaze, which was watching the children, and noticed that they were all looking at her.
 
Upon surveying the surroundings, she blushed slightly.
 
It seemed she felt embarrassed upon reflecting on her childish behavior of monopolizing the fish and winning a large number of medals. She cleared her throat deliberately before speaking.
 
“I, I’m tired of the medal game… L, let’s go to the next one.”
 
“Ah, sure.”
 
Surprised by her unexpected side, Haru couldn’t help but find it endearing.
 
After handing out the greatly increased number of medals to the children, Nayu apologized for monopolizing the fish. “I’ll give you this, so forgive me for hogging the fish, okay?” she said.
 
“Hey… don’t laugh at me and let’s move on, okay? Haru-san.”
 
It seems she had been found out.
 
Though I couldn’t see her expression through the sunglasses, her ears had turned slightly red.
 
“Alright, got it.”
 
With that, Haru followed Nayu, but even in the subsequent games, he couldn’t help but feel a childishness emanating from her.
 
…From medal games to other games, Nayu used her body vigorously,
 
surprising Haru with her active movements, which were far from her usual cool demeanor.
 
There was no trace of a maidenly figure;
 
she simply looked like a kid enjoying games to the fullest.
 
Contrary to her cool appearance, Nayu seemed to harbor a fiery spirit within her heart.
 
By the way, when Nayu used punching machine, a dull sound, which would never be heard from delicate girls, reverberated, making Haru shudder.
 
(I should make sure not to upset Nayu-san…)
 
Haru felt a chill run down his spine.
 
(I knew our relationship wasn’t short, but it seems like I don’t know Nayu-san as much as I thought I did.)
 
Haru felt refreshed.

Now, as they were enjoying the games, Nayu suddenly stopped in her tracks.
 
“Nayu-san? What’s wrong?”
 
“…Nothing.”
 
Following her gaze, Haru saw a basketball game machine.
 
The children were enthusiastically throwing balls towards the basketball hoop, trying to score as much as they could before the time ran out.
 
Nayu was looking at them with a distant expression, lost in thought.
 
Perhaps she still had a longing for basketball.
 
Haru remembered Onoi, a girl from another school whom he happened to meet at a previous gathering.
 
There must have been some reason why Nayu quit basketball.
 
…Though he didn’t know the details.
 
“Ah, sorry. Haru-san. …It’s nothing.”
 
” ……… “
 
…Is it really nothing? It was probably a lie.
 
Her voice, which had been cheerful until a moment ago, now sounded low and subdued.
 
[Is something bothering you, Nayu-san?]
 
He couldn’t bring himself to say those words.
 
He wasn’t sure how far he could delve into it without stepping on her landmine.
 
Even though he had such concerns, Haruya couldn’t help but reach out to Nayu, who seemed down.
 
“Nayu…”
 
It was just at that moment.
 
Haruya’s eyes widened and he froze.
 
In his field of vision were the figures of Sara and Rin.
 
The sight of the two S-class beauties chatting caught his eye.
 
Haruya simply focused his gaze on Sara alone and froze.
 
He didn’t even notice Rin’s presence in his field of vision.
 
(Wha- Why is Himekawa-san here of all places…)
 
Come to think of it, today was the weekend.
 
And the location was a crowded shopping mall.
 
There was a good chance of encountering acquaintances.
 
(Huh, no way… Why did she have to come here of all places?)
 
It wouldn’t be good if she noticed him.
 
On impulse, Haruya grabbed Nayu’s wrist and ran off.
 
“Hey, wait…”
 
Haruya tried to suppress his presence as they slipped into a nearby purikura photo booth.
 
“…Ah, Haru-san?”
 
Nayu, who leaked a flustered voice, placed her index finger to her lips and sweat nervously in her heart. She seemed to resign herself to Haruya’s desperate state.
 
While furrowing her brows, she stayed like that for a while.
 
“Sara-chan, why don’t you invite him for a date?”
 
“N-No…during this humid season, I tend to get migraines, so I try to avoid overexerting myself as much as possible.”
 
“Ehh, no way!? If you’re forcing yourself…um, sorry about that.”
 
“Ah, no, today is actually still pretty manageable, so don’t worry about it.”
 
“Really? That’s too bad… I invited Yuna too, but she declined due to some business. Could it be she’s on a date or something?”
 
“Haha, Rin-san never changes.”
 
And so on.
 
While exchanging such conversation, Sara and Rin passed by the purikura booth.
 
Haruya breathed a sigh of relief as their voices grew distant.
 
But Nayu seemed confused and disoriented.
 
“…Ah, um… Nayu-san… I’m sorry.”
 
And it was then that Haruya recognized their current position.
 
It was inevitable that Nayu would direct a suspicious gaze at him.
 
He had inadvertently pushed her against the wall and did a “wall slam” on her.
 
And their faces were close.
 
“What were you thinking, trying to take purikura like that, Haru-san?”
 
“Eh, no…”
 
It seems he was being misunderstood.
 
“You didn’t have to go so far as to beg like that. You could have just told me.”
 
“Ah, no… It’s not like I wanted to take purikura with Nayu…”
 
He panicked at the thought of being perceived as a pervert.
 
But there was no way to escape from the circumstantial evidence.
 
Especially the wall slam… What was he doing? It looked terrible from the outside.
 
He desperately tried to explain, and Nayu seemed to understand, albeit blushing slightly.
 
“I understand. I guess it was something like, you were about to run into someone you knew?”
 
She said in a slightly embarrassed voice.
 
(Huh? What’s with that reaction? Could it be that Nayu-san also knows Himekawa-san?)

No, that couldn’t be possible, Haruya dismissed that possibility.
 
And then, without being perturbed, he continued.
 
“That’s it! That’s how it was. But seriously, if you knew, you shouldn’t tease me like that, it’s bad for my heart.”
 
“I’m sorry! It’s just that seeing how flustered you were, I couldn’t help it. But I was surprised when you suddenly approached me like that, it was like a draw, right?”
 
“I’m really sorry about that.”
 
Haruya apologized sincerely.

Satisfied with their time at the game center, Haruya and Nayu left and came to a ramen restaurant on the seventh floor of the shopping mall for lunch.
 
Haruya ordered the restaurant’s recommended extra-large Ajitama Miso Ramen, while Nayu ordered the spicy miso ramen in a regular portion.
 
Bitter things were his forte, but spicy things were not Haruya’s cup of tea, so Nayu’s choice looked like it would hurt his mouth just by looking at it.
 
After exchanging greetings before the meal, Haruya and Nayu started slurping their noodles.
 
Just as they were about to get excited about their usual topic of discussion, Nayu interrupted.
 
“Haru-san, this ramen is just the right amount of spicy and delicious, so if you’d like, have a bite.”
 
Suddenly, Nayu pushed her bowl towards him.
 
(Oh… There goes our usual talk about shoujo manga…)
 
Although interrupted, Haruya stared at the bowl Nayu had offered.
 
“No, it looks completely red… And, I’m not good with spicy food.”
 
“Just one bite, it’s not that spicy.”
 
It’s a product that claims to be super spicy, so how can it not be spicy? …….
 
But seeing Nayu’s challenging expression, I had to take at least one bite
 
He tried his best to take a bite, and a tingling pain attacked his mouth.
 
Instinctively, he grimaced and gulped down some cold water.
 
“It’s… s-so spicy… Nayu-san, this is way too spicy.”
 
Complaining, he looked at Nayu, who smiled satisfied.
 
In my usual black coffee, as I was savoring it… Do you get it now?
 
Surprisingly, she seemed to be holding a grudge.
 
Apologizing briefly, I handed her back the bowl of spicy ramen.
