Looking at this girl again, Shishio said, "You don't need to worry about it."
"No! I must repay you," the girl said with a determined expression.??
"Then do you have the money?" Shishio asked.
The girl opened her mouth and was stunned. She blinked her eyes and said, "I... I will pay you later." She didn't have too much money in her wallet and it was because of that she couldn't pay for her novel in the bookstore before.
"Then if we meet again, you can pay me later," Shishio said with a smile.
The girl quickly nodded, but then she quickly shook her head since she realized that there was something wrong.
"What's wrong?" Shishio asked.
"How can I pay you?" The girl asked.
"If we meet again then you can pay me, right?" Shishio said.
"But what if we can't meet each other?" The girl asked.
"Do you want to meet me again?" Shishio said with a mischievous smile.
The girl blushed and she became flustered. "I... I... I..." She wasn't sure what to say and quickly became confused since she felt that if she said "yes" it felt that she had confessed to the boy, but in truth, she wanted to meet him again.
"You don't want to meet me again?" Shishio asked with a sad expression.
"I want to meet you again!"
The girl quickly said and loudly, but then because of that a lot of people gathered in their direction and looked at her with a thoughtful expression, thinking she was so bold. Her nature was very shy and she didn't know what to do at that moment.
Shishio was helpless at how shy this girl was and quickly brought her somewhere while ignoring the gaze of everyone on the street since they were a stranger after all.
The girl became even shyer when she was being protected by Shishio, but it felt comfortable.
"Are you alright? Sorry for trying to tease you before?" Shishio said.
"...You have been teasing me?" The girl showed a dumbfounded expression.
Shishio smiled and said, "Yes, your reaction is too cute. I can't help but bully you."
The girl wanted to say Shishio was a bad guy, but she knew that he was very kind since he was very patient with her and even bought her book before. She looked at him for a while and asked, "Wh... What's your name?"
"Me? I am Shishio Oga, what about you?"
"I am Miu Ashihara, um..." Miu looked at Shishio again and wondered whether he was a university student since she felt that he was very mature, but she felt that his face was very young so their age should be the same, right?
'So should he be in high school?'
Miu wanted to ask a lot of questions, but she wasn't sure where she should ask and whether she was bothering her.
"What's wrong?" Shishio was wondering why this girl suddenly looked at him with this expression and he was wondering why the more she saw her the more he wanted to tease her.
Miu was very shy and it seemed that she wanted to say something, but she was too embarrassed to say it.
"Do you want to exchange phone numbers or an email?" Shishio asked jokingly.
Miu quickly nodded and said, "Yes!"
Shishio looked at this girl and somehow suddenly felt afraid that she might be fooled by some scumbags in the future. He took his phone and said, "Then let's exchange our phone number and email."
Both of them exchanged their phone numbers and emails quickly.
"Then I will leave you first Ashihara-san," Shishio said since he really had a hard time holding his hunger and an urge to bully this girl more.
"Ah, yes, Oga-kun!" Miu quickly bowed her head and waved her hand.
"Next time, we meet don't be that nervous, alright?" Shishio smiled and left while waving his hand.
"Yes." Miu nodded with a smile.
Looking at Shishio's back that slowly disappeared, Miu then looked at the email and phone number of Shishio on her phone with a smile and at the same time, she thought that she should talk with him better when they met again in the future.
Shishio looked at the fake elementary school student in front of him and said, "Is there a seat for one person?"
"Ah, yes! Please follow me!"
The waitress seemed to remember Shishio since this guy was a bad guy that had asked whether she was an underage girl or not, however, she had to admit that this boy was handsome, especially when she could see that there were a lot of girls in the restaurant that were staring at him.
"Guest, you're so handsome."
The waitress said, telling what was inside her mind with a smile.
"Thank you, you're also very cute," Shishio said with a gentle smile.
"Ah! Th... Thank you very much..."
The waitress lowered her head with a blush. Unlike when her underclassmen told her that she was very cute all the time, the "cute" on Shishio's mouth was different which made her shy for some reason.
Shishio didn't think too much, however, the people in the restaurant thought differently, especially the staff inside the restaurant.
In the pantry of the Wagnaria, there was one boy that wore glasses, looking at his upperclassman that was blushing and shy when she talked with the guest. He clenched his fist and gritted his teeth, seemingly unable to accept that his daughter was blushing because of a stranger!
"What the hell is that guy? Is that guy a lolicon?!"
When those words came out from the mouth of the boy, everyone in the pantry looked at this boy with an expressionless expression.
'Aren't you the lolicon?'
"Takanashi-kun, not everyone is a lolicon like you," a young man with blonde hair and a long bang that covered one of his eyes said.
"What do you mean by that, Satou-san? I am not a lolicon! I am a "minicon"!" The boy whose name was Takanashi complained.
"Well, if you're curious, you can ask Taneshima later," a young man with blonde hair and a long bang that covered one of his eyes whose name was Satou said.
When both Takanashi and Satou were talking to each other, a young man with short blue, stared in the direction of Shishio with a thoughtful expression.
"Is there something wrong, Souma?" Satou asked.
"Nothing." Souma smiled and shook his head.
"Then I will order steak and curry rice," Shishio said.
The waitress seemed a bit surprised by Shishio's order since it was quite a lot, but she quickly nodded and thought that it might be normal since Shishio was a grown-up boy. "One steak and one curry rice, and what kind of drink do you want to order?"
"Is there a warm tea?" Shishio wasn't in the mood to drink soft drinks or artificial juice after all.
The waitress nodded and wrote down Shishio's order. "Then please wait for a while."
Shishio nodded and took out his book, waiting for his order to come.
When the waitress returned to the pantry, Takanashi quickly came toward her.
"Senpai, are you alright?"
"Huh? What do you mean?" The waitress looked at Takanashi with confused expressions.
"I mean... Your expression seems to be wrong when you're with that boy," Takanashi said with a serious expression as if a father that had caught his daughter was dating someone secretly.
Satou, who was in the kitchen, also stretched his head out, listening to their conversation.
"What?" The waitress quickly shook her head and said, "I... I only said that the guest was very handsome."
Takanashi and Satou looked at Taneshima (then the name of the waitress) then looked at each other before looking at the purple long-haired boy that flirted with Taneshima before. Even though they hated to admit it, this guy was really handsome, but at the same time, they felt very worried. Looking at Taneshima, they felt a bit worried that she would become an adult earlier and they might lose the innocent Taneshima.
"Ah, yes, this is his order!" Taneshima said with a cute smile.
Looking at Taneshima's smile, they knew that there was still time and they could still save Taneshima!
Only Souma looked at the direction of Shishio with a thoughtful expression.
Shishio was reading his book quietly, but then he heard the voice of a middle-aged woman that sat nearby him.
"Hey, the air conditioner in this place is so hot, can you do something about it?"
Shishio looked up and saw a middle-aged woman complaining to the tall woman with neck-length hair, gray eyes, and a slim figure. He could see that she was wearing a different uniform from the waitress and knew that she should be a manager of this restaurant.
Shishio nodded and had expected that he would receive a reward, however...
"Then get out and burn the fat on your body so you won't feel hot anymore," the woman said without hesitation to the middle-aged woman.
Shishio opened his mouth and stared at the woman with a speechless expression.
'Is my restaurant going to be alright?'
