V1 Chapter 49 | White Handkerchief

—What in the world had happened to Himekawa?

I opened the kitchen door with great energy and headed for the bathroom.

I saw the bathroom door in front of me.

As soon as I put my hand on the knob to open the door, it was opened with a mighty bang.

—knock!

I heard a strange sound coming from my fingers.

The door opened with such force that it kept its momentum and hit me directly on the forehead.

And at the same time, I saw a half-naked girl in front of me for a moment.

Her shoulders were exposed, and the one-piece dress she seemed to have been wearing earlier was draped over her arms, covering her from the chest down.

I also caught a glimpse of her white underwear, both top and bottom.

When I came to, my vision showed the ceiling.

The warmth and softness riding all over my body. The faint aroma of the fragrance was making me stop thinking.

“Te, Tendo-kun! Are you okay?!”

That line was mine. I heard the screams and came over, but on the contrary, she was worried about me.

Oh, my head. No, not my head, but my fingers and knuckles.

Himekawa, who is in my chest, peeks at me.

Don’t worry, I’m fine. I’m all right.

“I, I’m fine. More importantly, what happened?”

Himekawa, who is half-naked, points toward the changing room and complains about something.

“I saw something. Something black and crunchy… It must be that thing.”

Yes, I’m sure it was that thing. It’s probably that thing. It would be better to use a muddled name here.

I don’t like him either. I’d rather not meet him if I can help it.

“Don’t worry. I’ll take care of him.”

Himekawa’s eyes were burning as she sat on top of me.

What? Could it be that I’m pretty cool? Am I becoming a reliable man?

It’s hot. I feel my head getting a little hotter, and I can feel the heat just around my forehead.

It’s a fight against him. Fine, he’ll take care of it right here and now!

“Look, Tendo-kun. Your forehead is bleeding.”

Yes, that’s not it. I don’t seem to have any fighting spirit.

I touched my forehead with my right hand, and sure enough, my finger turned red.

I hadn’t seen my own blood in a long time. I felt a little bit of pain.

And when I look at my finger with blood, there is a strange color apart from red.

Blue and red. A beautiful combination.

And if you look at the bloody finger, it is a strange color, apart from red.

Blue and red. A beautiful collaboration.

“I need to put ice on it! I have to wipe the blood off first!”

Himekawa stands up in a hurry.

The way she looks back is very bad. It is a sight not to be seen. 

I am sure that I can only see it this once, but thinking about Himekawa, I must not look at it.

I’ll be a man and close my eyes.

Himekawa came back within 10 seconds.

The sound of footsteps stops next to my ear.

“Tendo-kun! Pull yourself together!”

I didn’t faint or anything. I just closed my eyes.

I was about to open my eyes when Himekawa’s hands grabbed me by both shoulders.

And then, she wiggles my head with tremendous force.

Wait, Himekawa, stop.

“This is all because of me. A, Ambulance!!”

You don’t have to call them! Don’t use the ambulance unless it’s a real emergency!

I’ve seen on TV in the past that there are so many non-emergency calls that it’s hurting their operations!

I slowly open my eyes and grab Himekawa’s arm with my hand.

“I just closed my eyes for a minute. Don’t worry.”

I’m fine. I just closed my eyes for a minute. Don’t worry.”

Himekawa, half-crying, was wearing the dress she was wearing properly, and I had no trouble keeping my eyes open.

I slowly got up, but my head was slightly dizzy.

‘Really? You’re bleeding, and your fingers are a strange color…”

“I’m fine, Men are not so soft.”

I got up and Himekawa gently wiped my forehead with a towel.

Then, a small white handkerchief was wrapped around my fingers.

“What’s this?”

“It’s my handkerchief. I couldn’t find a towel of the right size because it was so sudden.”

I did a bad thing.

I had approached the door without checking, so I had caused trouble for Himekawa.

It was my carelessness. 

“I’m sorry. Thank you.”

“I’m sorry… I’m really…”

“Don’t worry about it. The skin on the knuckles and head is thin, so it will bleed right away, but it’s not as big a deal as it looks.

But it hurts like a zing.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a starburst in front of my eyes.

More importantly, I need to find him.

“If it hurts, go to the hospital tomorrow. Oh, we should go to the emergency night hospital now.”

“I don’t need to go. I’ll be fine in no time.”

I stand up and stretch a little.

I feel a little dizzy, but I can move as usual.

I took some damage before the battle with him, but that’s okay.

Handicapping isn’t so bad. I’ve been improving recently.

I’ll show you the difference in strength.

“Are you sure you’re okay?”

“No problem. Himekawa, go to the living room and rest a little. I’m going into the changing room now.”

“Oh, you’re injured like that. Please do not force yourself. I’ll give up taking a bath today.”

That’s not good.

It is not because I want to see Himekawa after taking a bath. I take a bath to get rid of the day’s fatigue.

Besides, she is probably tired from her first part-time job today.

“I’ll be fine. It’ll be over soon. Don’t worry, I’ve had many run-ins with him, and I’ve never let him get away.”

I look at Himekawa with a smile on my face.

If you just look at the line, it reads like a damaged warrior going up against an incredibly strong enemy, but that’s not really the case.

It’s just me, lightly wounded, who finishes him off.

But he’s not that fast. Either my speed will win out or he will get away with it.

I’ll show Himekawa that I’m a man who can do it. I’m sure we’ll be fighting in the old building.

“Take it easy, please.”

Himekawa looks away from me with tears on her eyelids.

“Have a cup of tea and wait for me.”

I set off for the dungeon alone with my newspaper sword and the spray can that would be my final weapon in my hand.
