Here we go with another chapter.
When I Returned From Another World I Was A Silver Haired Shrine Maiden: Chapter 27
「Kisaragi-san, I’m really sorry for earlier…」
As soon as homeroom is over, a girl squatted down in front of my desk and talked to me, it was the same girl who asked about the relationship between me and Yuna. She gave off the impression of a small and active girl based on her short haircut, though her whole body seemed dejected right now.
「Even if you didn’t mean any harm with what you said, you still went too far… Reflect on it.」
A tall and slender girl with a ponytail said that with an amazed face while standing next to the girl. With those words the other girl seemed to get even smaller.
「That, I don’t really mind it… I think I would have had to talk about it sooner or later…」
For her to be troubled so much, I feel guilty that it came from my lie.
Even so, the girl seems like an honest person that I would like to get along with.
「More than that… Um, would you become friends with me?」
So, I change the topic and ask her.
After a small moment where she is speechless, the girl’s face blooms into a smile.
「…! Yeah, I would like that! I am Kaieda Jun, call me Jun!」
「Jun, is it? You can call me Alice.」
「Good for you, Jun. … Um, Kisaragi-san. If it’s okay, could I also become friends with you? I think that you will be fun to talk with.」
「By all means, of course! … Uh, have we already met somewhere before?」
The tone in which she speaks seems familiar to me… However, there isn’t anyone in my memories as Alice that was the same age as me.
「We talked a little in the shopping mall book store around 3 months ago, do you remember me?」
「Ah! You were the book store clerk from that time.」
I remember that! She was the clerk that helped me when I couldn’t reach the top of the book shelf.
「I’m glad you remembered me. I am Andou Fumika, may I also call you Alice?」
「Nice to meet you, Alice… Please also call me by my first name.」
Saying so, Fumika held out her hand.
「Understood, Fumika. Nice to meet you as well.」
I grasped her hand. It was a different feeling from that of a man, it was soft and small.
… Though, my hands have also become much smaller now.
「You two are cunning to have gone to her so fast!」
「Yes Yes! I also want to be friends with Alice!」
Other girls from the class who were watching now surround my desk.
「N, nice to meet you…」
… Ah, everyone is so close!
The space that was now filled with school girls has a good smell.
One after another my classmates and I exchange greetings.
There was one girl that hugged me during our greeting, other girls saw it and said ‘I want to hug you too’ while asking to hug me, I couldn’t reject them.
This is a good thing for me, isn’t it?
… The various soft things touching me made it hard to deal with.
「Yes yes, everyone! Although it’s good that everyone is becoming friends with Alice, you’re starting to go a little too far. Because she doesn’t have any friends of the same age, it seems she’s turning a blind eye to it because she isn’t used to it.」
I was finally released at the sound of Yuna’s voice.
『Ikuto-san, that’s good. It seems like you’re enjoying yourself a lot.』
I hear the flat voice of Alicia without any intonation in my head.
『Chi, it’s different than what you’re thinking, Alicia! This is just simple skinship! … S, since it’s just that, there is nothing to feel ashamed of!?』
『Don’t mind me.』
『No, I absolutely care about what you think!?』
『Because it is Ikuto-san’s body, you can do what you like? Even if your expression becomes sloppy and loose while you enjoy the softness of their chests, that’s something you’re free to do.』
「… Are you okay, Alice?」
My classmate calls out to me in worry as I suddenly turned pale, I had become unresponsive while responding to Alicia in my head. Looking at my appearance they decided to refrain from excessive physical contact, I think that is good for my peace of mind.
… Honestly though, I didn’t dislike it… I shouldn’t think about that!
Alicia’s mood became better by the end of the opening ceremony that took place after homeroom.
By promising to read a book that Alicia wanted to read after school in the library and promising to eat sweets that she has never tried before, I had somehow managed to repair our relationship.
