Awakening - Chapter 44
’’Clara, so you were here, we were looking for you everywhere.’’ Shizuko didn't recognize Masashi immediately.
Clara a little embarrassingly looked at Masashi.
’’That is...., ah, it's you! Why are you here?’’ Seeing Masashi, Shizuko was very surprised.
The other two boys also recognized Masashi, showing a startled and angry expression.
’’Can you introduce me to him?’’ At this time, on the side an adult voice resounded.
Clara gratefully looked at the man, ’’I'll introduce you, this is my junior high school classmate, Gennai Masashi, next to him is his sister, Gennai Kazumi. Gennai-san, this is our classes new chemistry teacher, Maruo Chojiro. Your familiar with the others.’’
’’Hello. I'm Maruo Chojiro. Nice to meet you.’’ The young teacher smiled and offered his hand.
’’Hello.’’ Masashi shook his hand.
Masashi suddenly had a strange feeling, as if he saw this person before. He pondered about it a little bit, but he still had no memory of it.
’’Clara, have you been together with him?’’ The boy who had been tricked by Masashi approached Clara and asked.
’’Murata, my affair isn't any of your concern.’’
’’I'm your boyfriend.’’
’’I've never acknowledged that.’’
’’You......because of him?’’ The boy pointed at Masashi.
’’I said, that my affair isn't any of your concern. Gennai-san, let's get out of here.’’
Masashi had no choice but to follow her.
’’Brother, you're being considered, as a love rival’’ Kazumi came over and whispered.
Seeing her gloating expression, Masashi stared at her.
He hasn't done anything, but still ended up stirring such a situation.
Approaching Rumi's classroom, they saw a sign hung on the entrance with a coffee cup design. There were also beads that were hung at both sides of the door with different colors. On the window there were ribbons and balloons tied together. From the outside it looks very colorful.
’’Pretty nice, it looks just like a café. Whoever thought of the design definitely has good taste.’’ Masashi told Kazumi.
’’Be careful not to let Rumi hear you, she's working very hard on setting the table.’’ Kazumi gave him a look.
’’You really are a good guardian, if you join the competition for top parents you'll definitely get into the top 10.’’
’’You speak too much, quickly go in.’’
Clara chuckled seeing the two siblings bickering with each other.
Going inside, they saw a room filled with borrowed coffee tables and chairs. The female workers wore the same dress as Rumi wore while the males wore uniforms while walking around greeting the guests.
’’Senior, Kazumi, you finally came, I've been waiting for you for a long time.’’ The three went inside, and was immediately greeted by Rumi.
’’Gennai-san, this is....’’ Clara was amazed with the girl's splendid appearance.
’’Just like I mentioned this is my schoolmate, Nagakawa Rumi. Rumi, this is my junior high school classmate, YoFan Clara, who studies at Pang Mu private high school, who I just happened to come across.’’
’’Miss YoFan, hello.’’ In front of outsiders, Rumi would always be humble and polite.
’’Hello, Nagakawa-san’’ Clara nodded to her, expression was a little strange.
After the three sat down, Rumi placed a tray with three cups of coffee and some snacks.
’’Three guests. Please enjoy.’’ Rumi held the tray looking at Masashi with a beautiful smile.
Masashi, and Kazumi first leaned and sniffed the coffee by reflex, then looked at the person sitting on the opposite side, Clara who was silent.
’’Is there something on my face?’’ Clara felt a bit uncomfortable as the two looked at her with beaming eyes, then unconsciously wiped her face.
’’Nothing, quickly drink, or it will turn cold and taste bad.’’ Masashi smilingly said.
’’Okay.’’ Clara placed her lips on the cup and immediately drank.
’’Does it taste normal?’’ After seeing her drink, Masashi suddenly asked.
Kazumi stepped on him.
’’I mean does it taste good?’’ Masashi withstood the pain and refrained from crying out.
’’Pretty good, it taste pretty good.’’ Clara very lady like, wiped her mouth with a paper towel.
They subconsciously felt relieved then began to drink up.
’’Come on, try these snacks, they look very tasty.’’ Kazumi smiled and said to Clara
’’Oh, thank you.’’ Clara was a little startled. She thought that Kazumi hated her, but it seems that it was only her imagination.
’’How does it taste?’’ After Kazumi saw her eat, she quickly asked.
’’It tastes good, inside there is a fragrant creamy taste.’’ And at the same time Clara sipped her coffee.
Seeing Kazumi's disappointed expression, Masashi broke out into cold sweat. He realized what this poisonous woman meant when she said those words.
Rumi, it seems like you've improved.’’ Tasting the cookie Kazumi joyfully said.
’’These weren't made by me, my classmates did. I didn't know why, but every time I wanted to help they would ask me to do something else. I also wanted to make some snacks for you to taste.’’
So that's why it tastes good, the two siblings cried out in their heart.
’’It doesn't matter, you can make one at home and give it to brother, and he had just complained to me a month ago that he hasn't tasted your food for a long time.’’ Kazumi said, smilingly.
’’Really? Well, senior, I'll go back and make you a snack, do you want cookies or chocolate?’’ Wearing a cute dress the girl looked at Masashi cheerfully.
’’Whichever you like.’’ Masashi revealed a stiff smile.
’’I'll make chocolate, because you've just eaten cookies. Senior, Rumi's going now, as well as Miss YoFan, just sit down and wait, I'll go and greet the other guests, and will come back quickly.’’ Seeing people come in Rumi, said a few words, and then bounced away.
’’Kazumi, even I won't let go of your mischief.’’ Masashi leaned on her side and whispered to her ears dejectedly.
’’Brother, may you rest in peace. It's because you were away for more than a month without a word, this is just interest.’’ Kazumi leaned away and said.
’’I'll strangle you, you dead girl.’’ Masashi ate and made a big bite.
Kazumi laughed loudly.
Masashi didn't want to make a fuss in front of other people, so he had no choice but to give up.
’’This dead girl, I'll get back at you afterwards.’’ Masashi said bitterly.
Clara was calmly sitting at the side, not knowing what they were talking about.
At this time, a few people came, it was Shizuko and the other people. The young chemistry teacher Maruo Chojiro was also among them.
’’Why did you come here?’’ seeing Murata come together with them, made Clara frown and said.
’’Why, are we not welcome?’’ Shizuko said, with a smile.
’’Of course not, where do you want to go.’’
’’Murata, are you, worried that Clara is still angry at you. Just apologize quickly like how you've always done.’’ Shizuko bumped Murata.
Murata understood immediately and walked past Clara saying softly: ’’Sorry don't be angry, okay?’’
’’Me, I'm not angry.’’ Seeing him apologize, made Clara's heart to slowly soften.
’’Let's go for a walk, okay?’’ Murata seeing Shizuko's glance, immediately know what to say.
’’I'm not going, I just want to stay here and sit down.’’ Clara subconsciously looked at Masashi.
’’Well, we're here to take a break, anyway, I'm a bit tired. Maruo-sensei doesn't mind, right?’’ Shizuko said with a smile.
’’I certainly don't mind, it's such a rare situation to sit with these many pretty girls.’’ Teacher Maruo said with a smile.
Since no one declined, the others naturally stayed.
As a result, the five people sat at a table closest to Masashi's table.
