Chapter 31 - Girl In Daze

Chapter 31 of 50 chapters

Shishio observed the girl that seemed to be very flustered after she touched him. He didn't think that this girl felt disgusted after touching his hand, but rather she felt very embarrassed.

However, Shishio had to admit that this girl was very cute, and at the same time, she was very refreshing since almost all the girls that he met were quite weird.??

The girl had dark green hair that was styled in a bob cut with her bangs covering much of her forehead and olive green eyes. She had a petite body, but her body height was average.

In his impression, she was like a cute rabbit that was shy about her surroundings, making him want to bully this girl somehow.

However, Shishio wouldn't bully her and he was also glad to meet her since he received a quite rich reward.

"Do you want to buy this book?"

Shishio chose this book because there was only one book left. In his mind, if there was only one book left this book should be fairly popular, right? So it didn't mean that he wanted to buy this book that much since he could buy a different book as long as it was written by Shiro-san.

"No... no..."

The girl said in a quiet voice and shook her head hurriedly, causing her fluffy hair to shake around.

"..You were the one who took the book first so..."

The girl knew that Shishio had taken the book first and she was too late so she decided to give up on the book, but then again, she felt slightly lost since she also wanted to buy that book.

"Do you like this author?"


The girl looked at Shishio curiously.

"I am just curious about this author since he has a special shelf in this bookstore, but if you like this book then you should get it since I can buy another book," Shishio said and directly put the book on the girl's hand before looking at the shelves again wondering which Shiro-san's books that he should buy.


The girl was at loss, looking at the book in her hand, and looked at Shishio who was minding his own matter. She wanted to give this book back, but she wasn't sure what to say since she felt that she might be rude and at the same time, she really wanted to buy this book.

When the girl was thinking about what she should do, she heard his voice again.

"You like this author, right? Do you have a recommendation on which book I should buy?" Shishio asked.

"Ah! Yes!"

The girl quickly nodded and looked at Shiro-san's book before choosing almost all the books on the special shelf.

"This "Winter Rendezvous" is an amazing book! And this "Spring of Birth" is giving me a lot of memories of... "


Shishio, who was on her side, was wondering whether this girl told him to buy all Shiro-san's books which made him speechless, but he had to admit that this girl was very cute, especially those clear eyes that were full of excitement when she explained all the books which were written by Shiro-san.

"Um... Um..."

The girl seemed to be nervous and brought a number of books in her hands. There were a lot of books on her hands that her little hands started to tremble since she took too many books.


The girl couldn't handle it anymore and let go of all the books in her hands since it was too heavy, but then another hand grabbed her hands, so the books on her hands didn't fall down on the ground. When she let out a sigh of relief, she heard a voice and also realized something.

"I know that you want to recommend me a book, but you should be careful, alright?"

Shishio looked at this girl with a helpless expression.


The girl lowered her head in blush since she was too embarrassed at the same time, she looked at the strong hands that held her hands at this moment. She wanted to say thank you, but she was too embarrassed since their hands were touching each other.

The girl's face was very red and she was very shy at that moment, but she encouraged herself to say thank you to him.

"Tha... Thank you," the girl said stutteringly.

"No problem," Shishio said with a gentle smile.

Shishio then helped to take some books on the girl's hands so the same incident wouldn't happen once again.

Looking at Shishio who helped her, the girl seemed to make up her mind and said, "This book, you should buy this one."

Shishio looked at the book that was chosen by the girl and nodded.

"Then I will buy this one, thank you."

"No problem."

The girl smiled and seemed to be satisfied when she heard Shishio's response.

"This author is very funny and all the books that he has written are very interesting."


When Shishio thought of Shiro-san, he felt weird for some reason.


The girl quickly nodded and explained what was so interesting about this author.

Hearing a girl talking about Shiro-san happily, Shishio raised his eyebrow and wondering what would happen when this girl met her favorite author. He was wondering if she would be disillusioned or would she embark on the path of pervert?

Shishio was very curious...


Shishio threw that thought away, wouldn't say anything, and decided to keep silent since he didn't want to destroy the dream of this girl.

The girl talked happily until she realized something.

"Ah! I.. I am sorry!"

The girl bowed her head again and her face was flustered. "When... I am talking about a book, I... I get very excited."

"It's alright."

Shishio waved his hand and said, "When someone tells what they love, it is normal to be excited." He looked at the book and said, "And since you have said this book is interesting then I will buy it, thank you."

"No problem!"

This time the girl smiled brightly at Shishio, happy that he could accept her recommendation.

"Then I will go now, bye."

Shishio said thank you with a light smile on his face then left the girl. He had to admit that this girl was quite cute and very innocent, but then again, when he thought that he would get a reward when he defiled this girl, he felt a strong resistance in his heart, but he also had an urge to get to know this girl as soon as possible.

Shishio felt that his heart was in contradiction, so that was why he decided to get away as soon as possible.

"Ah, yes!"

The girl nodded and looked at Shishio's back for a while before letting out a sigh since she felt that she had caused a lot of mess and at the same time, she felt slightly lost, wondering whether he thought that she was quite weird for talking about books excitedly before so he left so shortly after he got the book.

The girl quickly shook her head then walked towards the cashier to pay for the book.


Shishio had brought quite a lot of books and thought that it was time to go back. He was about to pay for his book, but then he met the girl that had recommended Shiro-san's book to him before and he could tell that she was troubled for some reason.

"What's wrong?"

His voice attracted the girl and she let out an exclaim when she saw him.

"Ah, it's you!"

Shishio then glanced at the girl, the wallet in her hand, and the cashier. He understood instantly what had happened and nodded. He then put all the books that he had brought to the cashier and said, "I will pay for her book, can you count all of them?"

"Ah!" The female cashier was startled, but then she nodded. "Yes!" She then glanced at Shishio and then the girl, clearly showing an envious gaze.

The girl also noticed the female cashier's gaze and blushed instantly. Her white face became as red as an apple and she wasn't sure what to say for a moment.


Before the girl said something, the cashier said, "The total is 12,400 yen."

Shishio didn't say much and paid for all the books without hesitation.

"Can you separate this girl's book?"

"Ah, yes!"

The female cashier became even more envious of the girl. Looking at Shishio who could take out all of that money without hesitation, she knew that this young handsome man was rich, but why was he looking at this girl, not her?

The girl was at a loss and she really didn't know what to do at that moment, but then, she felt something on her head that caused her to look up.

"What are you in a daze for? Here's your book," Shishio said with an amused expression.


The girl blinked her eyes in a daze, but then her hand was pulled by him gently and she saw him put the book in her hand.

"I will leave now, next time if we meet again by chance, let's talk about more books, alright?"

Waving his hand, Shishio left and felt that, giving that girl a book was too cheap since he received a private hospital because of her.


Shishio touched his stomach and decided to go to the Wagnaria, but...


Shishio turned his head and saw the girl before.

"Wait for me!"

The girl ran with all of her might before she stopped in front of him. She caught her breath and felt very tired, but then she looked up and said, "Thank... thank you very much!"


Shishio took a deep breath and wondered whether this girl wanted to be bullied by him so much since she came to him even though he had tried to get away from her.

"Um... I... I want to repay you!"
