At the elementary school I transferred to, there was a silver-haired girl who was treated as an outcast, so I continued to harass her. - Soichi's POV part 1
There’s a girl in my class who is an outcast.
She had silver hair and red eyes, so people called her “monster” and hated her; she was always alone.
Since I just transferred to another school, I didn’t know the circumstances, so when I asked about it, it seemed that she started to be ignored after getting into a fight with a class boss-like guy.
In other words, even if she was hurt no one would be bothered by it.
“Kukuku, the target is decided.”
I liked to do things people did not like.
At my previous school, I was bullying a girl who looked a lot like the silver-haired girl.
In front of me, she behaved with a stubborn smile, but inside she must have been humiliated.
I couldn’t help but laugh when I thought back on it.
And then after school, I went to her seat.
Hou, you’ve got guts to ignore me.
I approached the girl who was sitting still looking down and spoke to her again.
“Hey, you. I’m calling you, why aren’t you responding?”
“Yeah. Who else could it be but you”
The silver-haired girl apologized grudgingly. Under her red eyes, dark circles could be seen.
From this attitude, it seems easy to bully this guy.
She probably doesn’t even have the energy to resist.
A perfect sitting duck.
I grinned and decided to act quickly.
“My name is Soichi Hosoyama! Silver hair. What’s your name?”
“I see. Ririka, follow me!”
I pulled her hand and left the classroom. As expected, she didn’t even show any signs of resistance, but just did as she was told.
“Uh….Um, where are we going?”
“Yo-Your house…..? Why……?”
“Isn’t it obvious. It’s to play with you.”
When I said this, Ririka’s eyes fluttered and she was surprised.
She had a look of heartfelt disbelief on her face.
Kukuku, I know it from other guys, Ririka.
You are a “loner”.
The same “loner” Ani said, “loner” is to be a noble human being who prefers and likes to be alone.
That’s why, I’ve decided I’m not going to let you have any alone time.
You want to be alone, but I will follow you around.
Is this hard for you? Your expression right now says it all.
“I-I-Is it okay? You will play with me?”
“Yeah. And that’s every day. You’re not complaining, are you?”
“U-Un, I want to pl-play!”
Hou~…….she shows some promise.
But, you can only laugh like that for now.
This is just the beginning.
I can’t help but look forward to it. From now on, I’ll see you in pain…..
◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇
Since that day, I had often taken Ririka around with me.
Twin-tails with a strong sense of justice said things like, “Don’t get involved with her!” I ignored that.
No one can stop me from going down the path of evil. I talked back.
“I’m staying with Ririka on my own will! If you get in my way, I’ll show no mercy!” I said that!
The dumbfounded face of the twin-tails at that time was really amusing.
After all, it was just justice with a mouth.
The thing that worried me the most was that Ririka would reveal that she was having a hard time from being bullied by me, but that didn’t happen.
Kukuku, Apparently, you have a good understanding of the terrible things that can happen to you if you disobey me on a daily basis.
Unlike a while ago, she had cut off her bangs, which used to cover her eyes.
When I was shown that figure, I unconsciously whispered, “(Your eyes) are beautiful…”, it was a regret that would last a lifetime.
I always thought that since she had clear red eyes I would become sacred, and so my tongue slipped.
….tch, I don’t care about my black history anymore.
And even if I’m not half like Ririka, I like my appearance!
“What are we doing at home today, Souichi?”
Ririka asked me with a cocked head.
I made her call me by my first name so that others wouldn’t know that she was being bullied.
It was a great strategy that, from an outsider’s point of view, we looked just like good friends.
My own brain is frightening.
Today is Friday. That means tomorrow is my day off.
I finally decided to play a new hand.
“No. Go back to your place today.”
Ririka’s smiling expression suddenly became cloudy.
You’re obvious, even if you act like you don’t like it.
“What? You don’t understand?”
“I-I don’t understand? Did I do something?”
“I won’t let you just leave. Ririka, prepare to stay the night and then come to my house.”
“I’m going to stay…….So, that’s”
“You noticed. That’s right. I’ll have you stay at my house this Saturday and Sunday!”
“Okay! I’ll tell my mom and come to Soichi’s right away!
She’s very understanding huh.
No, she’s not. Ririka was afraid of me seeing her expression.
So you anticipated that I would do something worse to you if you made a face I didn’t like, and avoided it beforehand.
That’s pretty good, isn’t it? After all, bullying easy people isn’t fun.
I’m also getting better and better at it.
She was deprived of her own time at school and after school, and even on her only peaceful day off, she was forced to play with me.
From now on, I will not hesitate to invite her on holidays.
“Now then, let the h*ll break loose!”
◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇
After that, Ririka finished her preparations really quickly and came to my house.
I was surprised because I expected her to come slowly.
What was more surprising was that even Ririka’s mother showed up.
Oh no! I never thought she’d tell her parents……
Until now, I hadn’t consulted with anyone about the fact that I was bullying someone, so I had let my guard down.
I prepared to be scolded.
But her mother smiled the whole time and finally told me, ” please take care of Ririka,” and left.
“What’s wrong Soichi? Let’s play a game now, shall we?”
At someone else’s house, Ririka took my hand and headed to the living room.
So this guy is more afraid of me than I thought.
With this reaction, I’m sure Ririka wouldn’t complain if I did something more extreme.
Kukuku, I already have the home base advantage.
No matter what you do, you can’t escape!
Ririka sat down on the sofa, which was a fixed position. As usual, I would sit directly on the floor, but not today.
I sat next to Ririka at a distance of one clenched fist or less.
“Fuuah!? Ss-Soichi? Wh-What happened all of a sudden?”
“Come on, aren’t we friends? Don’t tell me……you don’t like it?”
“Oo-Of course, that’s not it! Rather I’m happy, I always wanted to…..”
“Huh, what did you say?”
I could tell right away that she was upset, even though she said that.
In fact, Ririka was even making mistakes in games that she was supposed to be better at than me.
Kukuku, I know, Ririka.
Women don’t like being approached or touched by men, right?
I’m a man who can do things which others hesitate to do without mercy.
I still have plenty of schemes left for later.
After the game, we took a bath and ate dinner my mother cooked for us.
