Chapter 5: The Method to Skillfully Make Her Drop Out -5- (Amano’s Day After That)
* * *
A few days after the welcoming ceremony, top-idol Maeshima Yuuko was enjoying her campus life.
Many times, she would always get associated as a celebrity from the nation’s group idol, so even after the welcoming ceremony, she couldn’t become a normal female student. With her campus life being closely watched over by the society and the media, she doesn’t have a free moment.
Maeshima searched for like-minded friends in her department and as if it was natural, showed that she enjoyed her university life.
The current time was midday.
Maeshima, an unusual appearance, was eating her lunch at the school cafeteria.
The school cafeteria was completely congested.
There was no space for a group of girls.
Maeshima pointed towards the second floor of the school cafeteria.
As soon as one of her friends heard the word ‘terrace’, she hurriedly shook her head.
Maeshima lightly tilted her head.
With teary eyes, Maeshima’s friends shook their heads.
In front of her friends, Maeshima humbly spoke.
The girls excitedly laughed.
They were a reliable group of people.
No matter if they were classmates, one was a top idol and the rest were ordinary people.
At any rate, there would be a great difference.
Even so, on the surface, they become friends.
The subtle feeling of distance was appreciated.
Maeshima dejectedly lowered her shoulders.
Even that dejected look of hers looked adorable.
Her group of friends honestly thought with envy, “Damn, no matter what face it is, she’s cute.”
One of the friends with docile looks spoke.
While taking note of her surroundings, she continued her words.
Maeshima laughed in amusement.
One of her friends jumped at the mention of that.
She let out a squeal of excitement.
As expected, the girls immediately became quiet.
A rumor till that degree was frightening.
Even though he may be a tall and handsome guy, they rejected the idea of going out with a delinquent.
At hearing Maeshima’s murmur, her friends became excited.
Maeshima let out a strained laugh looking troubled.
Maeshima ambiguously spoke.
She remembered what happened during the welcoming ceremony.
While she was being moved, a fan called out to her, a fan-like guy approached her, and after noticing it the guy in the white lab coat pinned the guy down. It felt like it happened in the blink of an eye.
That time, someone had spoken the name of the guy in the white lab coat.
If she remembered correctly, his name was probably Amano.
When Maeshima raised her head, she saw her friends’ worried faces.
Because Maeshima’s tone became dark and unconsciously looked down, her friends started to worry.
Everyone showed worried looks.
Maeshima let out a pure-like laugh.
While her friends headed towards the seats, Maeshima glanced and continued to gaze towards the stairs that would lead to the terrace.
If she thought it over, Maeshima was saved by the guy called Amano.
She couldn’t comprehend it during the sudden event but to leave just like that, she felt like it was a very rude thing to do.
After that, she wondered what happened to him?
At remembering the ogre-looking face that Amano showed when pinning down the guy, Maeshima lightly smiled.
The friends that secured seats called out to her.
While carrying her tray, Maeshima hurriedly headed towards them.
* * *
Around the time Maeshima was slurping her Udon noodles with her friends, on the terrace, the rumored genius asshole was with his best friend Ryouta who was stuffing his cheeks with bread.
If it’s for students, anyone can use this place; it wouldn’t matter.
But, in reality, at that moment it was Amano and Ryouta’s exclusive spot.
Everyone knew that Amano preferred to set up fort there so they ended up avoiding the area.
Ryouta spoke while he played around with his smartphone.
The both of them grinned with no dignity.
Amano grinned and let out an evil laugh.
Everything was according to Amano’s plans.
He chose the place where Nakao would make contact with Maeshima, there he arranged for the appearance of a suspicious guy, and then Amano would hold him down at the last moment.
Everything was a well-scripted play.
When Amano lighted his cigarette, a seemingly disappointed expression showed on his face.
Ryouta stared at his expression.
It was a genuinely disappointed face.
Feeling curious, Ryouta asked.
Amano looked at the smoke from his cigarette with a docile face.
Deeply breathing in the smoke of his cigeratte, he slowly let it out.
Ryouta gazed at Amano looking quite genuinely sad.
In the end, Nakao stopped his concerns for Maeshima Yuuko.
When Ryouta met with Nakao, he asked, “You’ll stop attacking Maeshima Yuuko-chan?” But,
Exchanging those words, he walked away from Ryouta.
It wasn’t only Maeshima Yuuko; an expression showed that he also didn’t want anything to do with Amano or Ryouta.
From then on, Nakao never once tried to make contact with Maeshima Yuuko.
Putting out his cigeratte on a carry-on ashtray, Amano then leisurely looked up at the blue sky.
He gazed at the dazzling blue sky.
The weather was clear.
The temperature was also at its best.
Gentle rays of sunlight filtered from the trees and onto the terrace.
With a change to his mood Amano spoke.
Ryouta’s eyes widened.
Amano gave a smirk before letting out an evil laugh.
Amano waved about with exaggerated gestures.
The sun rays that filtered the terrace, shone on the seemingly smug smile of Amano’s.
Amano is on the terrace.
In the chance that you carry a troublesome problem that you are unable to report to the police or a lawyer, you can pay a visit during lunchtime.
There’s no need to pay a big sum of money.
If you can just satisfy Amano’s hunger then all’s well.
He will surely act and speak in a smug manner, and while making fun of your request, he might take it on… perhaps.

Synopsis of the next case:
On this day, the person who appeared before Amano was a school girl who was crying her eyes out from getting dumped by her lover. The request that Amano took upon was her appealing to restore her relationship back with her ex-boyfriend. However, the ex-boyfriend was murdered by someone…
(T/N: The chapters from now on will be without the text box. It makes it fun to read and all but it takes up too much of my time to crop, edit, and type inside of it. I want to cover up as many chapters by the end of this year so I’ll be using normal quotation marks from the next chapter onwards. Any illustrations that the chapters have will be added, though.)
