Nozoki Ana Chapter 71
Chapter 71: Right now!
Don’t you think Yoneyama-kun is acting strange lately?
Eh? // Why?
Maybe he got a girlfriend?
I mean, if he had he would boast about it all day.
But for the last half month he’s not hanging around with us. // Once school is over, he immediately goes leaves.
He already got a job waiting for him // and is busy with his part-time and graduation work.
I felt my woman’s intuition at work though.
You had that?
So mean. // I’m a woman too.
Let’s check. // Ah, you’re right.
You’re so manly here too.
I want to check some more // if we’re a man and a woman. // Just kidding.
Ah! // Ah… Ah…
Checked // enough?
It was also half month ago, when Emiru herself changed the rule of not getting involved with each other
Except for “peeping”…
I’ll observe everyone by joining you guys again.
I thought it was just one of her whims, // but she’s not the type to take meaningless actions.
Nn // Nn..
I’ll dispose of every single person
That interferes with our “peeping”.
Could it be, she // knows something…?
No… who cares. // If I spend my days in peace a bit longer until graduation
The “peeping” will end…
What’s up, Yoneyama?
How…are your plans for Saturday? // are you staying over at Madoka-chan’s?
Yes, I’m working hard on my graduation work now
So I can spend more time with her.
Mh, I see. // Mhm.
You’re being weird lately, you know?
I can understand that you’re busy with a lot of things though.
Ah~ // Ehm~
You’re creeping me out.
I beg you
Lend me your apartment this weekend!
When I’m not there? // Why not stay over when I got more time?
I- I get in a fight with my mother // and I don’t want to stay home…
A-And you see, I’m entering society soon,
So I want to practice living alone..
Just as long as you stay over // at Madoka-chan’s place.
The incident with Mochitsuki crossed my mind. // But Yoneyama is my friend… I can trust him..
Please let me use your room.
Specially because he’s a friend, I don’t want him to find out about the “hole”..
W- Well… // I don’t know…
I don’t want any trouble until the time limit, the graduation…
If I have some more time…
You can come over, // okay?
I can only ask you!
You answered him “Let me think about it”?
How careless, Kido-san
A friend was on his knees begging me. // It was the only thing I could say…
As always you’re weak to such things.
Why not take a seat?
But why would he // go that far to get your apartment?
A crisis with the family… // But even if that’s not it, there are times when you want to be alone, right?
Or he wants
To check the existence of the “hole”?
Did hear from Mochitsuki? // But Yoneyama isn’t like that.
He might not be, // but his actions are strange enough.
I trust my friend! // I can lend it to him when there’s no hole.
You’re being to careless.
So that’s why I have a favour to ask
Let me cover the “hole”.
Ah, don’t misunderstand.
Just for when I’m not here.
The rules just apply to me, right? // If you cover it, I can lend out my room in peace..
This is crazy, but I promise // I’ll uncover it later for sure.
You made me do so much things until now, I won’t let you off the hook now.
From: Ueda Rie.
But let me be present when you do it.
…Huh? // That was rather easy…
I thought she would say “I’ll peep on Yoneyama”…
You bought such a thing?
I always thought about doing this, you see.
What a strange feeling. // This gave me troubles for close to two years
And with just one minute of work
It’s over so fast…
It vanished beautifully…
Like there was never a hole to begin with…
By covering the hole in the wall
A hole in my heart opened up though…
I’m telling you I’ll uncover it later. // Now get out here.
Emiru’s face at that time // looked sad as she just had parted with her lover---
It made me think
“She’s cute” for a bit…
I’m an idiot…
So I then promised Yoneyama to lend him my apartment
And decided to stay over at Madoka-chan’s room on Saturday.
It’ll be fine… // Yoneyama is a friend I can trust…
Welcome---- // Eh
So much. // Your graduation work is that big?
Sorry for bring it all over. // My deadline is near.
Must have been a pain to ride the train with that. // I should have just come over to you.
I didn’t tell Madoka-chan about lending out my room.
I feel calmer here.
I don’t want her to worry about stuff anymore…
I’ll be right back.
From Emiru? What does she want?
Back off. // I’m at Madoka-chan’s place right now.
You’re speaking too quiet. I can’t hear you.
A bit louder.
Come back, please, Kido-san
