I was careless.
I was just merely careless.
One exact week had passed since the school entrance ceremony, and it was after school time.
Without even knocking, I opened the door of a private stall in the male restroom, and found out that someone else had occupied it before.
A short stature, delicate just like a doll, created in an elaborate manner.
A specially made, gorgeous uniform, different from ordinary students'.
A hairstyle in which flexible hair is tied up in a bundle at his back,
and graceful features similar to that of an antique doll.
Even though I hate it, my recollection on that object-of-art-like appearance popped up.
I called his name by reflex.
What kind of situation is this?
Perhaps he forgot to lock the door.
Konoe, who was in there, flapped open and closed his mouth while opening his eyes widely at me, who suddenly opened the door.
Ahh, but still, I'm glad he didn't give me a scream.
Although it is now after school time, there still probably be people remained in the corridor.
If someone else saw me in this situation, I wouldn't know how I should justify myself to them.
On top of that, the other insider is that Subaru-sama.
According to the rumors, it appears that there is a Konoe's fanclub in this Rouran Academy, which has been established with a great number of members;
and that there are also extremists among them, who have made a crazy oath that whoever it is that makes a move on Subaru-sama, they will drown him into the Tokyo Bay.
Try having those fanatics see this scene. You will immediately be given death penalty.
Without a single doubt, you will end up getting burned to death, just like in the Witch Inquisitions during the Medieval Age.
When I thought about that, I found my situation still better.
In short, I just need to apologize to him.
Ahaha, sorry pal.
You know, I just opened the door carelessly.
I didn't have any evil intention...
I should leave this place, saying lightly as such, like nothing have happened.

Okay, let's take action.
I'm going to break the ice and mobilize the hands of the halted clock!
"A-Ahaha, sorry pal. Y-You know, I just opened the door carelessly......"
With the immense amount of strain going on, my mouth just can't move well.
I shift my glance due to the awkwardness, and my eyes has gotten stuck in his exposed thighs before I realized it.
Ueh, even though he's a guy, he has damn beautiful complexion.
Ceramic-like white skin, that is.
Perhaps he was about to take off his underwear.
Despite my blunder, my eyes ended up sticking on that white spatial beauty.
In an instant, I felt like I had seen something that I was supposed not to see for some reason.
Hey, wait a sec.
Isn't he wearing a strange type of underwear?
How should I put it...... Its form is definitely strange.
This thing looks exactly like women's underwear......
Thinking to that extend, I closed the door as though I was repelled.
Luckily, Konoe didn't give any sort of reaction.
Maybe he's still stiffened.
Yeah, I understand how he feels.
To me, the scene just now was quite shocking after all.
Immediately, I dashed out of the male restroom and washed my hands fiercely in the washroom nearby.
I haven't taken care of my "business" yet, so there probably be no need to wash my hands,
TL's note : he's saying "to crap" in a figurative way
but I didn't have even 1 milligram of room to think about that.
A cute-looking cat.
It was a pair of underwear with a lovely cat character slightly printed on it.
Or should I say, no matter how I look at that Delta Zone.......
"No no. Calm down."
There's no way it could be so.
I took off the glasses I was wearing and rubbed my eyes briskly.
If it wasn't a hallucination just now, then my eyesight must have become ridiculous.
But, can one's eyesight turn ridiculous all of a sudden?
And why the hell did I go to the restroom in the first place?
Nah, it's obviously the fault of the kimchi I ate for breakfast..
That damned Kureha, how dare she ignored the consumption limit with such unconcern.
In the morning TV program, they blabbered things such as my lucky color for today is red, but there's no way I can believe that kind of absurdity.......
And hey, such things do not matter anymore.
Yeah... Think about the problem.
"Why is Konoe wearing women's underwear... I wonder?"
The words uttered from my own mouth were unbelievable.
Because it's Konoe, isn't it?
It's that Konoe Subaru, isn't it?
He certainly is a guy, but he looks like a girl...
Or I should say... He has a face that seems to be much cuter than any girl's out there.
But even so, there should be no need for him to wear such underwear.
Or else, what might it be?
Maybe his lineage is a cursed bloodline in which even men have to wear women's panties.
".......That's absurd. How could there be such a thing?"
Then what the hell is it again?
My brain suddenly spun furiously like a washing machine desiccating clothes.
Subaru-sama, the restroom, panties, the cat, meow, meow, meow......
A series of runabout thoughts.
Loads of keywords were flying about inside my skull.......
And suddenly, a flash that seems to be nothing else but God's will alighted inside my head.
Unintentionally, I clapped my hands with a pop.
If I think about it, it's rather simple.
Ahaha, stupid me.
I wonder why it didn't come to my mind.
There is always only one truth.
Such an extremely simple answer, isn't it?
Yeah, Konoe Subaru is a pervert with the fetish of wearing female clothing.
No, wait, Sakamichi Kinjirou.
Reconsider it carefully one more time.
You know, it's that Subaru-sama.
It's totally incomparable to that of any guy out there.
I knew it. I can only think of that possibility.
Konoe must have a somewhat childish constitution that would feel some sort of sexual pleasure in wearing women's underwear.
If not so, then why did he wear such panties?
"......Holy shit! Who would've thought that Subaru-sama was a pervert."
My head went nuts by the shocking truth.
Even so, it'll be horrible if I don't bring this truth down my grave.
By some chance, try leaking this piece of information out.
Perhaps the bunch of female students will lose their living hope and turn into delinquents,
and in the worst case, perhaps somebody, like our homeroom teacher will feel her responsibility and hang herself.
Besides, I have no intention of criticizing the hobby of a total outsider to me.
Privacy should be respected. Everyone has their secrets.
Yeah... I am no exception either.
I twirled the faucet tightly and stopped the water.
Let's go back.
Maybe because I was surprised as though I would die, my stomach ache caused by the kimchi has flown somewhere else.
For today, let's just leave it be and obediently go home, have dinner and a bath, and then go sleep...
Let's just forget everything that should be forgotten.
Making up my mind like that, I'm about to turn around at the corridor's side―――.
"......So you saw them?"
For a guy, that's one little high alto voice.
An empty corridor, dyed by the setting sun pouring through the windows.
A short-built doll was standing amid that vivid orange.
"Jirou... Sakamichi Kinjirou. Yeah, if I recall correctly, that should be your name."
With a perfectly clear voice, just like the sound of a bell, the doll―――Konoe Subaru, called out my name.
A blunt attitude and a seemingly displeased facial expression.
This is Konoe's default behavior.
At the very least, being his classmate, that is how I perceive about him.
Konoe is thoroughly cold towards everyone except his mistress Suzutsuki.
As if trying to thrust anyone but his mistress away, his voice and his look are harboring an intimidating aura.
Had the girls in my class seen such an appearance, they would've made a racket, screaming out comments like "Kyah! So cool and stylish."
But with the way I am now, it would be very unlikely for me to spout such a remark.
.......I'll be killed.
I'll be killed at this rate.
I don't know why, but that vague anxiety flitted through my head.
"If you are planning on keeping silent, I will ask you one more time then."
Perhaps annoyed by the silence, Konoe moved his lips, which look just like small flower petals.
"You... saw my panties, didn't you?"
*Crash*, I felt as though the bitingly cold raging waves of the Japan Sea has surged into my mind.
What the hell is this...... It's too scary.
I mean, the fact that the content of what he's just said is somewhat stupid makes it excessively scary.
Urg, what the hell is "your lucky color is red"?
Doesn't this prove that fortune-telling was completely wrong......
「さ......さあ？ 何のことだ？ おおお俺は、何も見てないぞっ」
"Wh...... Who knows? What are you talking about? I-I-I-I didn't see anything."
I barefacedly spat out a lie. Well, you know.
How the hell could I say something like "Yeah. I saw them. I saw them properly.
You're wearing quite an unexpectedly cute pair of underwear, eh?"
It's impossible. You know, it's like breakdancing on a landmine source.
"Hmph. You saw them so clearly, and yet you say that you didn't see a thing?"
An indifferent tone as ever.
Very well. Then I'm going to feign ignorance to the end.
You know, I won't speak it out even if you carry out the torture equal to that of the former East Germany.
I'm gonna show you my defying spirit which will never yield to authority......!
"Spit it out so that you'll be at ease already. You saw them, didn't you?
You burned them into your eyes properly, didn't you?
You opened that door since you wanted to see my panties, didn't you?"
"Like hell I would!
Who the hell would look at your panties?!
I'm an adult, you know!
There's no way I would be aroused with that kind of character underwear!"
"......My bad, for they were character underwear.
By the way, how did you know the pattern on my panties?
So it's not that you didn't see them?"
Oh crap! It was a leading question?!
"C-Calm down! It was just my sudden impulse!"
"Shut up, pervert! You have no human rights now."

General suggestion: you are writing a story, so keep the sentences in simple past tense. Unless it's the character's real time narratives. I won't fix the tense here. You make the choice then.ReplyDelete
