"So you're saying you're attracted to me?"
Mahiro didn't like repeating himself, after his initial speech he wasn't going to prolong his humiliation a second time.
"….. I thought you finally admitted you were in love with Aika—"
"I was in love with Aika, but she's not here anymore. My feelings have moved somewhere else, after all, I am a hormonal teenage male."
He said this with a pointed look towards Yoshino, probably in reference to the numerous times Hakaze propositioned herself to him, in which he all turned down.
"I think your referring to sex, and I don't see why it would be directed at me—"
"I know about sex and I know how I feel about you."
Mahiro cut off Yoshino's sentence again, starting to get sick of this denial game. So he decided to quickly finish the conversation.
"You don't have to worry, I know how you feel as well. Or I know you don't feel. You carefully observe everything around you and know what's considered right from wrong and how to act in any given situation. You're able to control yourself and those around you almost to a tee. Towards Aika, you probably told yourself to love her and acted accordingly."
With the last few words, Yoshino got angry; finally an expression broke through his previous emotionless features.
"I have feelings too! Just because I don't gush them out like a fountain!"
"Yeah, you bury them so deep inside you, you can't even feel your own feelings."
Yoshino breathed heavily for several seconds.
"…..If you know so much, why would you even bother telling me?"
"Because I don't want to regret not doing anything about it, if you die."
With that, Mahiro walked out of their bedroom.
He entered the kitchen and found Yamamoto sitting at the dining table.
"Good morning, erm, I heard a bit of shouting coming from your room, did something happen with Yoshino?"
"I told him I loved him."
"Agch, kah, kegh, ke kek."
Yamamoto began choking violently on her tea and accidently knocked over her cup spilling the liquid all over the tablecloth. She ignored all this though.
"Why? Is there a problem because we're both guys."
"No no... I'm actually a yaoi fan-girl so I adore gay couples….. I just never thought you would be one."
"What did he say?!"
"He didn't have to say anything. I know he's still attached to Aika."
"…..Wait, so you answered your own question for him?"
Mahiro stayed silent, so Yamamoto asked another question.
"...What do you think he'll do now?"
"He'll probably use it to his advantage any chance he gets from now on."
"….. And you're okay with that?"
Mahiro shrugged his shoulders.
"….. Yoshino's smart, so he always finds a way to make things go his way while never making enemies out of the other people. That's a part of who he is."
At that moment, a message was heard from the apartment's intercom calling all of them up for a meeting.
Some type of meeting~
"So, why should I care about something like that, it has nothing to do with me."
The others stared at him dumbfounded and at a loss for words. The plan wouldn't work without his co-operation, but there was just no persuading this boy.
Yoshino stepped up behind Mahiro, they hadn't had any eye contact throughout the entire meeting, not since their earlier conversation.
"If you do this, I'll give you a kiss as a reward."
After he said this, Yoshino gave Mahiro his custom troll smile.
