V2 My Girlfriend Cheated so I’m Cheating To Chapter 4

At a study meeting

KO-FIDISCORD


V2 Ch4. At a study meeting

I was lounging on my bed.

I was supposed to be studying for my exams… but my mind was preoccupied with something else.

That something was “Senior Sakurajima Tōko.”

During the day, Nakazaki-san asked me to persuade Senior Sakurajima to join the ski camp.

She seems to have said she wouldn’t participate at the moment.

The reason, it seems, is due to her “X-Day Revenge Plan.”

…But I wondered if persuading her to go skiing would make her feel bad…

With that in mind, I wasn’t too eager to do it.

However, remembering Nakazaki-san’s troubled look during the day, I felt I couldn’t just do nothing.

Nakazaki-san is a good person, and she has helped me out with the X-Day matter.

…I’ve always wondered why such a nice person is friends with someone like Kamokura…

I’ve found that a bit strange for a while.

Perhaps, only someone as caring as Nakazaki-san could manage to be friends with someone like Kamokura.

And there was another reason, besides Nakazaki-san’s request, why I wanted to contact Senior Sakurajima.

It was about our “Christmas Redo.”

To be more precise, I wanted to secure her schedule before the spring break started.

And since I’m inviting her to dinner, I also wanted to know her food preferences.

What kind of ambiance she prefers for the restaurant is something I’d like to know too.

And I need to decide the location for the Night Illumination.

“There’s no use dawdling. Should I contact her?”

As I sat up, I reached for the smartphone placed beside my bed.

📱 (Yū) Excuse me, do you have a moment?

A reply from Senior Sakurajima came in just a few minutes.

📱 (Tōko) Sure, what is it? Something you want to talk about?

I smirked at that.

Does Senior Sakurajima think I contact her only when I have something troubling me?

📱 (Yū) It’s not that serious, but it’s about the “Christmas Redo.” I was wondering what you’d like to eat.

📱 (Tōko) Anything’s fine. Whatever you like. I don’t particularly dislike anything.

📱 (Yū) That makes it hard for me to decide. Could you at least tell me a cuisine type? Japanese, French, Italian, Chinese? Or even whether you prefer meat or fish is fine.

📱 (Tōko) Well, any genre is fine, but a place where we can relax would be nice. A restaurant where we can enjoy conversation.

I was thrilled by her reply. Does this mean Senior Sakurajima wants to talk with me?

📱 (Yū) Understood. I’ll look for a place that’s not too noisy. What dates are good for you?

There was a pause before her reply.

📱 (Tōko) My exams end at the start of February, but I’ll be busy with my tutoring job until the second week. How about sometime after that?

I thought about it. But wouldn’t that coincide with the ski camp?

📱 (Yū) Can I ask you something? Aren’t you participating in the ski camp?

Another pause.

📱 (Tōko) Did someone tell you?

📱 (Yū) I heard from Nakazaki-san today.

There was yet another pause.

📱 (Tōko) The X-Day matter has become a bit of a rumor. I don’t really like being the subject of curiosity. It feels a bit awkward to participate.

📱 (Yū) Is it because of me?

Her reply came quickly.

📱 (Tōko) Not at all! It’s not your fault, Yū! It’s just how I feel, so don’t worry about it!

📱 (Yū) But I can’t feel right about going to the camp while making Senior Sakurajima feel this way.

📱 (Yū) Maybe I should cancel too.

📱 (Tōko) Don’t think like that! You should go. It’s your first ski camp, right? You’ll have fun, for sure.

📱 (Yū) Then, can we talk a bit about the “Christmas Redo” schedule and other stuff? It won’t take much time.

📱 (Tōko) Yeah, we should probably talk it over.

📱 (Tōko) Tomorrow, I was planning to borrow some books for my Religious Studies II class and study a bit at the library. How about discussing it afterward and studying together for a while?

This was an unexpected offer. A study date with Senior Sakurajima!

📱 (Yū) Absolutely! I’m not good at Religious Studies. I can’t seem to grasp it, even when I attend the lectures. I was worried about what to do.

Our university, being affiliated with Christianity, mandates “Religious Studies” in the first and second years.

It’s an essay-based exam. As someone with no interest in religion, it’s one of the subjects where my credits are most at risk.

📱 (Tōko) Then it’s perfect! Let’s meet in front of the library after the fourth period.

📱 (Yū) Understood. Thank you!

Yes! I closed my phone and made a small fist pump.

This is how I secured my first “Study Date” with Senior Sakurajima!

The next day, after our fourth period, Senior Sakurajima and I met in front of the library entrance.

There were many students due to the upcoming exams, but they seemed busy gathering materials, so not many noticed us.

As we entered, Senior Sakurajima immediately started selecting books.

“Our university was originally a Catholic convent, so there are many essay questions about Christian-centered humanism and ethics.”

Saying this, she picked out several books.

“Are we reading all of these?” I was astonished. There are so many other exams.

Or rather, I want to focus on my major subjects.

I can’t spend so much time on a general education subject like Religious Studies.

“We don’t have to go that far. There are key parts in these books, so focus mainly on reading those parts.”

“I see,” I said, relieved.

“I haven’t been paying much attention in class. I always get sleepy listening to those lectures.”

“That seems to be common among boys. Don’t worry, I’ll teach you the key points later. I got an S grade in Religious Studies in my first year. Leave it to me.”

Senior Sakurajima said with a bright smile, seemingly unconcerned about the rumors.

We borrowed a few more reference books for our majors and left the library.

“Shall we go to a family restaurant or a coffee shop now and study together?”

“Yes, please. Oh, I’ll at least pay for the coffee.”

“You don’t have to worry about that.”

“No, it’s only natural since I’m asking for tutoring from Senior Sakurajima Tōko, who’s top of the second year in the Information Engineering Department.”

“Ah ha, if there’s a reward involved, I guess I have to teach properly, huh?”

It had been a while since I had such a conversation with Senior Sakurajima.

Due to the timing not aligning with class schedules, there weren’t many students around, so we didn’t attract much attention.

Just as I was about to leave the main gate with Senior Sakurajima, feeling happy,

“Yū-san!”

I was suddenly called out.

Looking in the direction of the voice… it was Meika-chan.

“Meika-chan?”

I responded in a puzzled tone, and Meika-chan hurried over.

“I was waiting for you here, Yū-san! When I emailed your brother, he said, ‘Yū should still be at the university,’ but you didn’t come out, so I got worried.”

“Meika-chan, why are you here?”

“Weren’t we supposed to study together the other day? But you never contacted me, so I came to your university after shopping!”

Meika-chan said this, puffing her cheeks red from the cold, and then glanced sideways at Senior Sakurajima.

“Are you perhaps Sakurajima Tōko-san?”

She asked this question to me.

“Yes, that’s right. She’s a senior at our university and also from my high school. Senior Sakurajima, this is Ishida Meika-chan, a second-year student at Ichikawa Girls’ Academy.”

“Ichikawa Girls’ Academy?” Senior Sakurajima said, then smiled brightly.

“Nice to meet you. I’m Sakurajima Tōko. Your brother has helped me a lot.”

“Nice to meet you, I’m Ishida Meika.”

Meika-chan bowed her head slightly, but her tone was a bit stiff.

“Yū-san, where are you going to study together? There’s something in math I don’t understand.”

Meika-chan took my hand and made a pulling gesture.

“Meika-chan, about that, is it okay if we do it another time? I was planning to study for exams with Senior Sakurajima today.”

Then, Meika-chan looked up at me with a face that seemed shocked.

“But you promised to teach me the other day…”

“No, I’m not saying I won’t teach you. Just asking if we can do it another day.”

Meika-chan’s large eyes teared up, making her look like she was about to cry.

Just when I started to feel a strong sense of guilt,

“Yū-kun, how about Meika-san joins us? It’s not like our exam study session is going to be us glued together solving problems the whole time. If Meika-san has questions, it shouldn’t be a problem. It would be sad to turn her away after she came all this way.”

Senior Sakurajima said this, looking at Meika-chan.

“What do you think, Meika-san? Is it okay if the three of us study together?”

Meika-chan looked at me with resentful eyes for a moment but silently nodded.

The three of us, Meika-chan, Senior Sakurajima, and I, entered a nearby family restaurant.

Senior Sakurajima sat across from me, and Meika-chan next to me.

Senior Sakurajima and Meika-chan ordered a cake and drink buffet set, while I ordered a pancake and drink buffet set.

“We shouldn’t dawdle too much, so let’s keep the study session to two hours,” Senior Sakurajima declared.

Immediately, Senior Sakurajima and I spread out our Religious Studies textbooks (I was in I, and Senior Sakurajima in II), and Meika-chan her Math 2B textbook.

I was looking at the “Religious Studies notes Senior Sakurajima used in her first year.”

“Senior Sakurajima, about this ‘Differences in Ethicality between Religion and Society,’ what should I answer here?”

“Let’s see, which part? Ah, I think I wrote about this in the next chapter. Something like religious taboos and legal deterrence…”

Our heads got closer as we leaned in to look at the materials.

“It’s nice, isn’t it? Being able to have a study session like this between juniors and seniors from the same university.”

Meika-chan said this with a smile while resting her elbows on the table and supporting her chin with both hands. But her smile seemed a bit forced.

“And Senior Sakurajima is as beautiful as the rumors say. Yū-san, you’re lucky to have such a beautiful senior girl around.”

I didn’t know how to respond to Meika-chan’s sudden remark.

Why did she even start talking about this?

“Really? Thank you.”

Senior Sakurajima smiled back at her.

Meika-chan just stared at Senior Sakurajima.

“Senior Sakurajima must be really popular, right? I’m envious.”

“It’s not really like that. Aren’t you cute too, Meika-san? I think boys wouldn’t leave you alone.”

“I’m not good. I was strong-willed in middle school, so the boys were scared of me, and my high school is a girls’ school, so there’s no chance to meet them.”

“I was seen as harsh too, so boys kept their distance from me.”

“You don’t seem like that. My brother even said, ‘Senior Sakurajima is everyone’s idol, no, a goddess.’ You don’t use the word ‘goddess’ lightly, right?”

Senior Sakurajima just smiled silently at Meika-chan.

No doubt the “goddess” part struck a nerve, but no one but me would realize that.

“And Senior Sakurajima was in a co-ed high school, right? You must have been popular.”

“If only that were true.”

“Of course, I’m certain of it. How many people have you dated so far?”

Senior Sakurajima is smiling, but I feel like a dark aura is emanating from her.

“No comment.”

“Is it because you’ve dated so many men you can’t even remember?”

Meika-chan, stop! Don’t say any more!

She might be innocently probing, but this is a topic Senior Sakurajima probably doesn’t want to be teased about.

I felt a cold sweat breaking out.

“I’ve never actually dated a guy before. Please, let me hear your love stories next time, Senior Sakurajima. I want to be a wonderful woman like you.”

“I doubt I can meet your expectations, Meika-san. But for now, let’s focus on studying. That’s why you came here, right?”

Senior Sakurajima said this in her usual tone.

But this, could she be really angry…?

“Meika-chan, you had something you didn’t understand, right? What did you want to ask me?”

I interjected, trying to cut through the conversation.

“Yes! It’s about this problem I don’t understand…”

Meika-chan opened her workbook and showed it to me.

“Yū-san, I don’t understand this sequence problem!”

Senior Sakurajima resettled in her seat, returning to her studies.

Relieved at the change of topic, I asked, “Which problem?”

“It’s problem number 305. ‘The following sequence can be divided into specific sets. When these sets are labeled as the nth group…’ How do I solve this?”

Ah, I’m good at math being a science student, but sequences are not exactly my forte.

“Um, just give me a minute.”

I took out a piece of loose-leaf paper and started working on the problem.

“For this kind of grouped sequence, you should focus on the first number of each group. If you isolate those, you get a sequence like this. So…”

I easily solved the first and second questions.

But I got stuck on the third one. I couldn’t figure out the pattern of the sequence.

“May I see the problem? I might be able to help,” Senior Sakurajima offered, sensing my struggle.

I handed her the workbook.

After examining the problem, she took out a piece of paper and began explaining to Meika-chan.

“It looks like the sequence differs for each group. Maybe the general term is different for odd and even groups?”

Senior Sakurajima continued where I left off.

However, Meika-chan watched her with a slightly uneasy expression.

“Thank you so much,” I said to Senior Sakurajima as she finished explaining.

“It’s nothing to thank me for. Everyone forgets things sometimes,” she replied with a smile.

Hearing that was a relief to me psychologically.

Of course, I know Senior Sakurajima’s grades are better than mine, and I have no intention of competing.

Suddenly feeling the urge, maybe from drinking too much coffee, I excused myself to the restroom.

The seat we were in was hidden from view by a partition near the restroom.

As I was about to return,

“What do you think of Yū-san, Senior Sakurajima?” I heard Meika-chan’s voice.

I stopped in my tracks, curious about their conversation.

I peeked at them from behind the partition and foliage.

“Just a close junior, I guess,” Senior Sakurajima answered, sounding a bit subdued.

“Is that really all? Nothing more?”

“Well, there’s nothing more at the moment.”

I felt a mix of emotions hearing this.

— “Just a close junior,” “Nothing more at the moment” —

Senior Sakurajima was clearly denying any special relationship with me.

But her use of “at the moment” suggested there might be hope for more in the future.

I listened more intently.

Meika-chan seemed to sense the same thing.

“So ‘at the moment’ means there might be something more between you and Yū-san in the future?”

“Who knows what the future holds?”

Senior Sakurajima regained her composure, sipping her coffee.

After a brief pause, Meika-chan spoke again.

“Senior Sakurajima, you and Yū-san worked together on that ‘revenge plan against a cheating partner,’ didn’t you?”

“Where did you hear that?”

“I heard it from my brother.”

“How exactly did you hear about it?”

“I heard that Yū-san’s girlfriend cheated on him with your boyfriend, Senior Sakurajima. When Yū-san consulted with you, you proposed, ‘Let’s not just get revenge, but traumatize them with a scheme.’ Then, on Christmas Eve at the club party, you exposed their affair in front of everyone and declared a complete cut-off.”

“That’s right.”

“I heard Yū-san has always admired you, Senior Sakurajima. Naturally, when ‘his girlfriend cheated on him,’ and a woman fought alongside him, it’s natural for him to develop feelings for her. But you, Senior Sakurajima, don’t seem to be dating Yū-san even now. Does this mean that even though you were in the same situation, you don’t have feelings for Yū-san?”

“You seem to have heard quite a lot.”

Senior Sakurajima chuckled wryly.

“Don’t evade the question, please!”

“I’m not evading. So, what is it you want to say to me, Meika-san?”

“Your feelings, Senior Sakurajima. Even observing today, it seems like you don’t see Yū-san as a boyfriend. But you’re not pushing him away enough to make him give up either. You’re keeping him in a state of ‘more than friends, less than lovers.'”

Senior Sakurajima silently listened and then sipped her coffee.

“Yū-san is hurt by his previous girlfriend’s cheating. He must be feeling lonely. And yet, if you say, ‘I have no intention of dating Yū-san, but I don’t want to let him go either,’ it’s cruel. Yū-san’s feelings are being toyed with! I can’t accept that.”

“Is that so?”

Senior Sakurajima placed her coffee back on the table.

“So what if I said ‘I like Isshiki-kun’? What would you do then, Meika-san?”

Meika-chan seemed taken aback but quickly retorted.

“Regardless of what you feel, Senior Sakurajima, my feelings won’t change. I will convey my feelings to Yū-san directly!”

Eh, Meika-chan, what are you trying to say?

“Besides, currently, you aren’t dating Yū-san, and despite being aware of his feelings, you haven’t acted on them. I believe my feelings are stronger. There’s no problem with me becoming Yū-san’s girlfriend, right?”

“Maybe that’s true…”

Their conversation came to a halt.

I was also shocked by Meika-chan’s unexpected words.

…Meika-chan wants to be my girlfriend?

Was her sudden closeness lately leading to this?

But why so suddenly…

Then I remembered Ishida once saying, “Meika has a crush on Yū.” I hadn’t taken it seriously at the time, but I never expected this.

I decided to cool down and returned to the restroom.

It would be awkward to come out immediately.

I waited for the right moment to leave the restroom again.

I made a deliberate noise as I closed the door, signaling my return.

“Oh, sorry.”

I returned to my seat with a look of “I’m back now.”

Senior Sakurajima checked the time.

“It’s been about two hours now. Shall we leave?”

“It’s already that time? Then let’s call it a day.”

We packed our textbooks and notebooks into our bags, getting ready to leave.

Then, as if it were nothing, Meika-chan spoke.

“Yū-san’s club is having a ski camp soon, right?”

“Yeah, that’s right.”

“I heard this year they’re short on people, so siblings can participate. So, I decided to join too.”

I already knew about this, so it wasn’t a surprise.

However, Senior Sakurajima looked quite taken aback.

“I’m looking forward to it.”

Meika-chan said with a forced smile, grabbed her bag roughly.

On the train back, Senior Sakurajima, I, and Meika-chan stood in that order.

We were silent, partly due to the crowded train.

Well, I was “caught in the strange tension between the two and couldn’t talk.” Additionally, I was supposed to be unaware of their earlier conversation, so I couldn’t say anything unnecessary.

Soon, an announcement for our station, Makuwari, came on. Meika-chan and I were getting off here.

“Then, Senior Sakurajima, thank you for today. I’ll be taking my leave.”

“Excuse me,” Meika-chan followed, saying goodbye.

“Oh, wait,” Senior Sakurajima stopped me.

“We were supposed to talk about the ski camp today, right?”

“Oh, right.”

Because Meika-chan showed up, I had lost the opportunity to talk about that and the “Redo Christmas.”

“I’ve decided to join the ski camp after all.”

Hearing this, Meika-chan sharply turned to look at Senior Sakurajima.

In response, Senior Sakurajima gave her a smile.

“Meika-san, let’s meet there then. Looking forward to it.”

“Likewise, please take care of me.”

Meika-chan spoke in an angry tone and then left the train.

I was unable to say anything and hurriedly followed her off.
