A nice and short chapter for today. Kinda a relief after that super long one yesterday.
When I Returned From Another World I Was A Silver Haired Shrine Maiden: Chapter 33
After the Duel
With the game finished, I let out a sigh in relief.
「Amazing! That was amazing! That was wonderful!」
An incredibly excited Hashimoto-san jumped at me.
My head is caught in her plump chest and I am overwhelmed by the feelings of softness and volume that come along with her sweet scent… I can’t breath.
「Hashimoto-san… It hurts…」
「Oh, I’m sorry.」
Upon noticing my situation, Hashimoto-san released my head.
That chest… It’s murderous in many ways. I was nearly taken to heaven. That softness…
Alicia’s voice came out as I was reminiscing about the feeling.
『… Ikuto-san, can we talk later?』
… I think what happened right now was unavoidable, Alicia-san.
As I begun cursing the unreasonableness of the world, a calmed down Hashimoto-san starts to speak to me.
「I’m sorry for becoming so worked up, up until now I have never won against Souta-san deck, so I just…」
I was thinking this while playing as well, but Souta’s deck really is too harsh for a beginner… Hashimoto-san had kept playing Wiso in that situation as well.
「… Um, Kisaragi-san, can I ask you a favor involving Wiso…」
Hashimoto-san faces me with a serious expression.
「Can you teach me how to properly play Wiso.」
Incidentally, Souta had also mentioned that Hashimoto-san wanted to get stronger at Wiso.
Though I don’t know why, I feel want to answer her earnest request. It’s probably the same feeling that made Souta decide to face Hashimoto-san so seriously.
「If I talk to my butler, I can pay you an hourly wage as a private tutor. I can also prepare the cards for you.」
「… It’s fine, I don’t need such a thing. Instead, in exchange for me teaching you, will you become my friend?」
「… Yes! I hope for the best between us, Kisaragi-san.」
「Calling me Alice is fine, I’ll also call you Ryouka-senpai… Also, can you stop using formal language with me?」
「I don’t mind, Alice-san! … I wouldn’t want to make anyone anxious because of the tone I use.」
As I became friends with Ryouka-senpai, Souta calls out.
「… I’m also your senior. What’s with this difference in treatment between us.」
「I wonder if it’s possible for me to show respect for someone who uses a control deck against a beginner…」
「Uu… Well it’s fine. If it’s Alice, you don’t need to use anything special for me.」
「… It seems I was able to meet your expectations.」
「It was more than what I expected… By any chance, did you learn Wiso from Ikutari?」
「…Eh, umm… Why do you think that?」
「I felt like you played in the exact same style as him. Besides, you were copying Ikutari’s habit of knocking on the top of the deck when you were hoping for a card.」
He was able to identify it so well. I can’t just say he’s wrong, so,
「It’s just like you said, Ikutari brother-in-law taught me Wiso.」
Another strange setting was suddenly added to Alice.
「Alice-san, you were part of Kisaragi Ikutari-san’s family…?」
As Ryouka-senpai said that, her face went pale for some reason.
I wonder if Ryouka-senpai knew me as Ikutari? Because she was in the same year as me, it wouldn’t be strange for her to know about me.
At the very least I knew about Ryouka-senpai — Ryouka was one of my former classmates — Though I didn’t really know that much about her.
「Yes. I have become his sister-in-law.」
「… Is that so. I’m sorry… I…」
As she said that, Ryouka lowers her head and goes silent.
Souta followed up as he realized what was going on.
「Alice, after school tomorrow can you come and teach this fellow Wiso. Ryouka, as for the story about that time, you don’t need to say anything.」
「I’m fine with that.」
「I’m also okay with that… Souta-san, thank you…」
With such a thing, we broke up for today.
When I returned home and spoke to Yuna about what happened today,
「Alice… You, what are you doing?」
Was the amazed response that I received as expected.
After that, Alicia exposed the fact that I was sandwiched in Ryouka chest to Yuna and mom during dinner, I was helpless to say anything.
… Somehow, It seems like I will be going to the library during lunch break tomorrow.
