(Oh look! She’s pulling away! She’s activating the <shyness> skill of glasses girls)
Suddenly the glasses girl that was talking to me went silently and looked at me with a wary gaze.
[Look this is a library, you need to keep you voice low a bit]
[Sorry, I don’t usually go to a library, I was going to catch some bugs in the forest but it was suddenly becoming off limits. I came here to cool off because I went all the way back from grandma’s house to catch giant stag beetles]
Ore girl then lower’s her volume and apologizes
Well that blockade is totally my fault, but thanks to that I’m spared from being turned into a human insect thanks to the evil insects that evolve because of Nubutama Hime’s curse. You should thank me for that.
[You should stay away from the forest, I heard that there’s a scary uncle watching over it.]
Of course, I hired them.
[Right? I couldn’t even sneak in! I wonder If I can catch something awesome there! Like a Hercules beetle!]
The ore-girl answered while forgetting her manners again
[Hercules beetles only lives in Central and South America and it’s impossible to find it here in Japan]
The glasses girl rebutted while giving her a cold stare.
[Whatever! Since I cooled off, let’s play Hide and seek or Daruma-san instead!]
Unfortunately, ore-girl is basically insensitive, that she failed to notice the ill-feeling the glasses girl harbors.
You can compare them to oil and water, they don’t go well together. Sadly both of you belongs to a niche genre of personality, so I hope you two get along
Also, playing hide and seek and Daruma-san is NG since it would become a bad flag from the point of view of the story.
[I want to go but I haven’t finished my summer homework yet, and my childhood friends are waiting for me]
[You don’t have to do that! You can’t get expelled in elementary anyway so it doesn’t matter if you skip making them!]
[Anyone who isn’t intellectually ambitious is a fool]
The glasses girl says.
[Huh! You want a fight?]
[No. I’m just thinking about my book report, I don’t mean anything when I said that]
Then the glasses girl caresses the spine of <Kokoro> by Kyusensatsu Oji-san that’s sitting on the bookshelf.
Oh glasses-chan, didn’t you just say that you just finished the book <Run, Melos!>?
[I don’t know what’s your problem but why are you so gloomy? Try going outside for a bit so that you don’t turn into a mole cricket!]
[Thanks for the nickname, in return let me call you Miss Zamuza since you like those bugs]
Glasses girl, who was given an inappropriate nickname made a stinging comment.
Let’s not do this, having a girl given a nickname base on a poisonous insect isn’t fashionable. She really has this Kafkaesque trait that have the potential to wake up one morning and turns into a poisonous insect!
[Heh, that’s great! If I transform with an insect, would I be a Rider type?]
[E! Wai-wait a minute!]
The ore girl pulls the glasses girl and tried to take her along. The glasses girl takes on the trait of an intellectual woman, strong on a verbal battle but weak physically.
[Oi, wait a moment, that girl already promised me to help me write my book report!]
[Ah, eh, yes…]
[What the heck, Chih, this is boring]
[Sorry about that, but would you like to go fishing some other time? I’ll show you a spot where we can catch a lot and I have rods at home too]
[Really? It’s a Promise. I’m Tsubasa Toba!]
[Yuuki Naruse, Nice to meet you!]
I shook the hand of Tsubasa after she present her hands
[So where do you live?]
[The house with the totem pole in the yard – the one with a weird ornament]
[I see! Alright, I’ll be there, next time]
Tsubasa then dashed off.
