“It looks like you’re going to be okay for now.”
After being rescued from a car accident.
Ryoma Ryuzaki breathed a sigh of relief and released his embrace.
He had been hugging Kururi Kurumizawa all this time to support her.
(I was being hugged…)
After his warmth disappeared, she finally realized that fact.
She had not been aware that they had been touching each other until now. She was surprised at that.
Kururi Kurumizawa was a rather cautious person.
Especially when dealing with the opposite gender, she is conscious of not getting too close to them.
Although her pink hair may be eccentric, her facial features are very well-defined. Therefore, in order not to cause unnecessary male-female trouble, she refrains from skinship… However, Ryoma Ryuzaki easily slipped past that caution.
Even though it was a spur-of-the-moment event, the distance between them was quite close in this instant. Kururi Kurumizawa can only remain dumbfounded in the face of him.
(Is this guy … such a human being?)
The Ryoma Ryuzaki she saw at school and the man he is now are two different people.
The listless man stumbling down the corridor was gone.
Now, in front of her eyes was a young man full of vigor and good looks.
“Tch …, that car got away. They almost hit someone, what bad manners.”
First, he looked around for the driver of the car, who had already disappeared.
However, when he realized that the other person was not there, he let his tongue slip.
He then turned his attention to Kururi Kurumizawa.
“You have to be careful, too. If I hadn’t saved you, you might have died, you know?”
In strong words, like he was lecturing her.
It was truly a “sermon”.
(Huh? Am I being scolded?)
Although they knew each other, it was almost the first time they had met and even talked.
And yet, this was the first time she had seen someone who could lecture her in a natural way.
Or, thinking back, it was the first time in her life that she had even been scolded…
(She had never even been scolded by her father…)
For her, born as a genuine young lady, it was a very new experience.
She didn’t know how to react when she was scolded.
So she apologized for the time being, but Ryoma Ryuzaki did not forgive her.
“I don’t want you to apologize. I’m just asking you to be more careful in the future. …I can’t always help you. Next time, you have to be able to take care of yourself.”
However, his words are not a ‘self-satisfied lecture’ that he just wants to feel good about mounting others.
Ryoma Ryuzaki is daring to speak harsh words, sincerely thinking of Kururi Kurumizawa.
She rolled her eyes when she realized this.
She was just amazed earlier.
(I can’t believe … that people like this actually exist.)
Self-sacrificing acts of helping others without regard for themselves.
Unselfish love that asks for nothing in return for helping others.
A deep kindness that truly cares about the other person.
Kururi Kurumizawa could not help but think…
“Like a hero…”
Or a savior.
Or… it could be described as a ‘main character’.
Ryoma Ryuzaki’s expression slightly intensified at these words.
But it was only for a moment, and after he blinked, his face was already back to its normal, fearless appearance.
“Hero is a bit of an overstatement. I’m … just an ordinary human being.”
Hearing these words of humility, Kururi Kurumizawa squeezed her chest.
It was an unconscious act.
(This is not good…, this is a bit of a no-no.)
She couldn’t hold back any longer.
The feelings that had been kept under wraps with astonishment are about to explode all at once.
Let’s be honest.
Kururi Kurumizawa was… excited.
The fateful encounter, happening, and conversation… grabbed her heart.
（I love Nakayama.)
She couldn’t hold back her feelings any longer.
In just one moment,… just a few minutes, Kururi Kurumizawa’s love for him had been eroded.
(I don’t understand anymore…)
Kururi Kurumizawa was distressed by the mess that had been stirred up in her heart.
She, too, had been poisoned by the poison of the… protagonist.
This is the characteristic of a genuine “protagonist”.
Ryoma Ryuzaki is a womanizer.
As Shiho Shimotsuki said, there is no one better than him.
If you’re a normal girl…well, even if you’re a non-normal girl, he’ll make you fall in love with him.
Until just the other day, it was rotten.
However, the main hero, who has been revived by the main heroine, has become a very troublesome existence.
He is a born hero.
He is a man who pushes forward on the path of harem.
Such a character has been revived… Of course, there’s no way the god of romantic comedies wouldn’t love him…
