Aren’t You Too Sweet Salt-God Sato-San? - Chapter 5.3
TL : Listless
Editor : KhanMc
In response to this reaction, Kazuharu-san began to speak in a tone of shame, as if ashamed of her daughter’s blunder.
[…We have a data communication plan with a family share package. But because of Koharu’s obsession with the minsta thing you taught her, she used up all the internet data on her own, almost to the limit.]
[I don’t know the details, but it seems that she was repeatedly viewing the same account’s photos over and over again… Thanks to that, I had to suffer through a lot of trouble. I can’t get in touch with my wife or reply to my work emails because of this annoying restriction. The news app that I used to look forward to every morning is now dead, and my schedule is completely screwed up.]
[Huh, but Kazuharu-san, you called me normally…]
[It’s possible to make a call and use the internet even if the data limit is on. You are also a highschool student, you should have known that]
[…But the message from Koharu-san for help?!]
[That stupid girl was panicking thinking her phone broke as soon as the limit was imposed. She must have sent it sometime then.]
Wa-Wait a minute!!!
Then does that mean, perhaps…!
[I didn’t take back the smartphone but rather kept it temporarily…]
[The plan was only about keeping Koharu’s smartphone until the data connection speed gets lifted, so that she doesn’t enter strange places again… In any case, there isn’t any meaning in holding a smartphone that can’t be used.]
[What about being forbidden from going out?!]
[I had to take Koharu to the store to change the contract for the communication plan. It would be inconvenient if I didn’t.]
[What was all that even for then…]
I felt my knees give out and collapsed on the spot..
Even the other four who had gathered here were dumbfounded by this stupid thing that had happened.
…In the end, there are no parents anywhere who would constraint their daughter.
In front of me was just another father who, like Sato-san, was clumsy, uncommunicative, and had trouble expressing his feelings.
As I was overcome with a feeling of exhaustion that swept over my entire body, Kazuharu-san abruptly said,
[Well, you will have to hear the rest from the person herself later.]
At that moment, as if planned, the rear passenger door of the car parked in the parking lot opened by itself.
I thought it was strange, but soon the reason became apparent.
She had apparently been lying on the back seat, hiding herself, but now she finally revealed herself.
She looked embarrassed and apologetic, as if she was a child who knew she was about to be scolded. With tears welling up in her large eyes and her shoulders squeezed tightly together, she made her appearance, making her slender body even smaller than it already was.
She neatly bowed her head 90 degrees, drawing the attention of everyone present, and in a trembling voice,
She said an apology.
[I… I didn’t know anything, and caused problems to Oshio-kun and everyone, and even the important promise we made for shaved ice…!]
Raising her face which still looked as if she could cry at any moment and started talking on and on.
And she bowed 30 degrees again.
[I’m really, really sorry for everything!]
In a voice that seemed to reach over the horizon, she said her apologies.
We were at a loss for words at this turn of events.
In midst of this, Kazuharu-san, with his usual inorganic tone without showing any emotions,
[…Well, I’m sure you have a lot to say about this incident, but it was my lack of explanation that caused this situation. I would like to apologize for that-]
With that, he took out a sheet of paper from the pile of pamphlets.
It was a cheaply made pamphlet with the words “Sakuraba Grand Fireworks Festival 2020” written in popping letters.
In short, it was an information pamphlet for a fireworks display.
[Apparently, there’s going to be a fireworks display near here, and since it’s a festival, I’m sure there will be a stall or two lined up, like shaved ice…]
[Well, Koharu seems to be reflecting on this and has completed all the errands for today. I will permit it if you only go out for a while. You should have a heart-to-heart talk over fireworks, right? Oshio Sota?]
[…You, did you know everything…?]
[I don’t know what you mean by that.]
Kazuharu-san said, feigning ignorance.
…Oh my god.
He is absurd, just like Sato-san. He had everything happening in the palm of his hands.
I can’t believe that there are parents who are so horrible, so cunning, and yet so sweet to their daughters…
[You are too overprotective…]
[That was until today.]
…And so, the fight between me and Kazuharu-san ended with my complete loss.
Everything went according to his plan.
