V2 My Girlfriend Cheated so I’m Cheating To Chapter 5

If you know your enemy and know yourself?

KO-FIDISCORD


5. If you know your enemy and know yourself?

“Sigh…”

Leaning against a standing tree, I sat down on the browned grass, opened my can of coffee, and let out a deep breath.

Today marked the end of the last exam. For a university student, the biannual exam period is the most stressful time.

Finally, I was free from those hellish two weeks.

I was in a small green area next to the archery range, beside the university grounds.

This place isn’t frequented much. It’s separated from the main buildings by a road and situated at the edge of the grounds, so sports teams rarely pass through here. The archery club members sometimes do, but only occasionally.

There’s a moat nearby, offering a nice view.

That’s why I sometimes come here to relax and clear my head.

It’s the perfect spot when I want to be alone.

Tomorrow starts the spring break. I won’t be coming to the university for a while.

So, I wanted to spend my last moments as a freshman here, undisturbed and at ease.

Fortunately, despite being February, there’s no wind today, and it’s warm.

The sky is clear and blue, the air crisp.

I watched water birds flying towards the nearby moat.

…When I think about it, a lot has happened this year…

Celebrating with Ishida after getting into this university.

Excitedly saying with Ishida that “our admired Senior Sakurajima Tōko is at this university too,” and vowing to confess to her.

Joining the club where Senior Sakurajima was, only to find out she had already started dating Kamokura, and lamenting with Ishida.

Then meeting my first girlfriend, Karen, and starting to date.

The happy days with Karen.

The night I discovered Karen’s affair with Kamokura.

And then… out of despair, I said to Senior Sakurajima, “Please have an affair with me.”

But what she suggested was “a revenge that would traumatize them.”

After that, Senior Sakurajima and I decided to carry out our revenge on Christmas Eve.

We exposed Karen and Kamokura’s affair in front of the entire club.

Karen’s true nature was revealed, and Kamokura was brutally rejected by Senior Sakurajima in front of everyone.

And as an added bonus, Senior Sakurajima said, “Tonight, I will spend time with Isshiki-kun.”

However, nothing really developed between Senior Sakurajima and me. I’m still looking for any chance to be with her, just like in high school.

Looking back, it was a tumultuous year for me.

Even combining my entire life until high school, I never experienced such a series of dramatic events.

…There’s a ski camp coming up. Meika-chan said she’s going to be there, but what’s going to happen…

As I thought about this, I dozed off, not having slept much due to exam studies and the warmth of the sun.

“…but, you know, you need to think about it properly.”

I heard a woman’s voice, speaking in a somewhat coquettish manner.

“We’ve done enough groundwork in the council.”

“We’ll make sure the votes aren’t biased.”

Multiple male voices joined in.

“We have various preparations to make.”

It sounded like a group of men and women discussing something.

In my drowsy state, I vaguely listened to their conversation.

The woman’s saccharine voice sounded familiar.

“This ‘Miss Muse’ is going to be different from the previous beauty contests.”

“To boost it, we really want Sakurajima Tōko-san to participate.”

…Sakurajima Tōko…

I half-opened my eyes and looked towards the voices.

Three people were talking.

“Don’t worry. I have plans on my end.”

“Alright, then.””We’re counting on you, Karen-chan.”

…Karen?

That snapped me out of my drowsiness. I carefully observed the three.

The two men were walking away up the slope.

The woman was walking towards my location.

As I focused on her… no doubt about it, it was Karen!

She didn’t seem to notice me at first.

I suddenly sat up, leaning against the tree.

Karen noticed me then, her eyes widening in surprise.

“Why are you here!”

Karen looked openly displeased.

“That’s my line. What are you doing here?”

I must have looked just as displeased, if not more.

Even when we were dating, we rarely bumped into each other by chance. Why now, after breaking up, have we met twice in such a short period?

“I’m here because…”

As she began to speak, Karen stopped mid-sentence, eyeing me warily.

“First, tell me why you’re here. Are you stalking me or something?”

“What?” I asked in disbelief.

“Why would I stalk you? If I could, I’d rather not see your face for the rest of my life. Sorry, but following you around is the last thing I want to do.”

“Nice to hear. Then why are you in a place like this?”

“This is my favorite spot. Today’s my last day coming to school after the exams, so I just wanted some alone time.”

“Me too! I came here because nobody else does, just wanting some peace and quiet. But to run into you… it’s the worst.”

“What were those people you were with about?”

When I asked, Karen turned away, looking flustered.

“That’s none of your business. What I do and who I meet with shouldn’t matter to you. Do I need to explain?”

“I thought I heard Senior Sakurajima’s name?”

“I don’t know. Maybe you misheard?”

Karen turned away, dismissing the matter with indifference.

There’s definitely something going on… I thought.

But if she’s like this, she won’t say anything more.

“Fine. Let’s leave it at that.”

I stood up.

“Then I’ll be going. See you.”

As I passed by the cross-armed and scowling Karen,

“Wait a minute.”

Karen hesitantly called out.

“What now? You still need something from me?”

“It’s not that big of a deal, but I owe you one. I’d rather settle it than have anything more to do with you.”

“I already told you it’s fine. I don’t want anything to do with you either.”

Karen turned sideways.

“I won’t be satisfied until I settle this debt! You helped me pass Economics. I don’t want to keep dragging that around. Let’s call it even.”

“You passed Economics?”

I looked at Karen in surprise.

Given her struggle with math and her reliance on others, I thought she couldn’t have passed the Economics exam.

Karen nodded sheepishly.

“Thanks to you showing me the textbook. I memorized all the pages and formulas the professor mentioned during class and just barely got enough to pass.”

“Well, that’s good then.”

“So, is there anything you want from me?”

…Something I want from Karen?

I thought for a moment.

I really didn’t have anything to ask her, but since she insisted, maybe I should just ask.

“Then tell me one thing. You said our dates were ‘boring.’ What about them did you find so dull?”

“What?”

Karen looked perplexed.

“Why are you asking that now? Do you still have feelings for me?”

“Of course not! Even if you begged me, I wouldn’t! ”

“Then why does it bother you?”

I hesitated for a moment, but then decided to speak.

“I’m going to have a date with Senior Sakurajima. We’re planning a ‘Christmas redo.’ I want it to be a fun date that she’ll enjoy. Consider it just one piece of advice.”

“Just one piece of advice because you have no other options, right?”

Ouch… I internally stumbled over her words.

Indeed, I didn’t have any other girls to consult.

“Fine. If that’s all it takes to settle the debt.”

Karen spoke, not entirely displeased.

“The main issue is the lack of excitement in your dates.”

“Lack of excitement?”

“Yes. More like ‘lack of dreams,’ if that makes it clearer.”

Karen started speaking with a hint of pride.

“Girls need dreams. The feeling of ‘How will this guy surprise and entertain me next?’ That anticipation.”

“I thought I did quite a bit of what you wanted when we were dating.”

“That’s not what I mean. Karaoke or arcades every time, ending with a family restaurant… Predictable dates like that are boring. Girls want something exciting, something to look forward to!”

“Maybe that’s just you. I think Senior Sakurajima is different.”

Karen shrugged her shoulders and shook her head.

“It’s not like that. Sakurajima is the same. She’s a girl, after all. Girls anticipate feeling excited and delighted on a date. They want something sparkly and special in a date.”

Hmm. I can’t take everything Karen says at face value, but there’s some convincing logic in her words.

Come to think of it, Senior Sakurajima does have her girly moments.

As I was pondering, Karen spoke up again.

“So, where do you plan to take Sakurajima? What kind of restaurant?”

Karen approached with her arms crossed, acting all high and mighty.

“Well, she mentioned wanting a place where we can relax. Maybe French or Italian… Chinese could be good too.”

“Chinese? What kind of Chinese restaurant are you thinking of?”

“Eh, well, a large one? Maybe a famous place?”

I answered vaguely. I hadn’t really researched any specific restaurants yet.

“See, that’s where you’re wrong. It shows you’re not experienced with women, or you don’t know the basics of dating.”

Karen looked at me with a mixture of disbelief and slight mockery.

“What now, you still want to criticize me?”

“Not criticizing, just stating facts.”

Karen exaggeratedly spread her hands.

“Choosing a regular Chinese restaurant for a first date is ‘proof of inexperience with women.'”

“Why’s that?”

“Think about it. Chinese cuisine often involves noodles, oil, and thick sauces. Plus, you have to share from large plates, so you’re always worried about splashing sauce or dripping soup. Women dress up for dates, right? Can you enjoy a meal while slurping noodles or being mindful of sauce splashes?”

Ouch… I couldn’t argue against Karen’s point.

Indeed, Chinese cuisine often includes noodle dishes and oil-based or thick-sauce dishes, which can easily stain clothes if they get on them.

“It’s the same reason why you don’t choose barbecue for early dates. Well, at least it’s better than barbecue since you can divide the food into smaller plates.”

“But Western cuisine also uses oil, and they have soups too, right?”

Feeling a bit defensive, I retorted.

“That’s why Western cuisine places have napkins on the table. It’s a different history of escorting women there.”

“Then what kind of cuisine is suitable for a date?”

“Safe choices are usually Western cuisines. Some Chinese restaurants now offer Western-style courses, so that kind of chic Chinese? Sushi works too.”

“Sushi?”

Wouldn’t soy sauce spill too?

“Yes, sushi is easy to eat one piece at a time. Just be careful with soy sauce. Many places serve it with salt now. And the dishes come in small portions.”

“I see…”

“Whatever you choose, make sure the restaurant offers a variety of dishes to accommodate any dislikes the girl might have. Places where you can eat a variety of small dishes are good. Smaller plates mean less chance of staining clothes. That’s why you should avoid curry, barbecue, and ordinary Chinese on early dates.”

“Got it.”

“Of course, avoid places with strong odors too. They can stick to clothes. As for seating, it depends on your relationship. If you want to see her face, choose a table. But it’s harder to get close. If facing each other makes you nervous, go for a counter. Being close might be surprisingly good. Private rooms let you talk more but might make the girl wary.”

Wow, Karen really knows her stuff about this.

“For a foolproof choice, bistros or bars are safe bets. Can’t go wrong there, especially for romance beginners.”

This is the first time I’ve received useful advice from Karen. Well, the last comment was unnecessary.

But I should thank her sincerely.

“Thanks, Karen. That was helpful.”

“Hmph, you just don’t know how to treat women. Really.”

Saying that, Karen turned away.

Wait, is it my imagination, or are her cheeks slightly red?

I couldn’t help but smile and waved goodbye as I left.
