Denial

"You're imagining things! I'm not gay!" he says. "He's my partner. Best friend and all. Is that so hard to understand?!"

Rise giggles and that's very irritating. He's not lying, really! Souji is just a friend – the best he could dream of, to be honest. There's nothing to add.

"I don't buy it."

"I'm not gay!"

"Yeah, whatever. You say that all the time," Rise sighs. Boys. They can be so dense sometimes!

Yosuke glares but she doesn't even notice.

"But you like Senpai! Which I can understand, by the way. He's so cute! It's a shame he doesn't like girls, though."

There, he disagrees. Souji is not cute. Yosuke'd rather say he's handsome. In a totally objective point of view, of course. And what was that with Souji not liking girls?

"For the last time, Rise-chan, I'm not—"

"Oh, gimme a break! I don't understand why you can't even accept it. Is it because you're such a jackass with Kanji-kun?"

Well, there's that and the fact that he's not gay, damn it. He just has this amazing friendship with a guy. It's nothing special so why all the fuss?

"Yosuke-senpai, gimme a straight answer. If Kanji really liked a boy, would you really be disgusted?"

"Uh. I don't know, maybe."

He doesn't see where she is going. Naoto is a girl in the end and even Yosuke can tell that Kanji is totally in love with her.

"And, mmh, let's pretend your name isn't Yosuke. Let's pretend you're called Tom!"

"What are you talking about? Why do I have to change my name? Plus, Tom isn't even a cool name."

"Whatever! What if Senpai was called Charlie? Could you consider a beautiful relationship between Tom and Charlie? "

Wide-eyed with fear, Yosuke shrieked. And not in a manly way.
