SH – Chapter 23 – Spending Time with Irina after a Long Time

“This is a problem…” (Louis)

I mutter to myself as I sort through the papers containing the consultation requests sent to the troubles consultation box.

Maria went to the church today to offer prayers as a saint, so I am currently working alone.

Thinking that now was the only chance, I checked through the papers sent to our club and the various messages sent. However, the contents were filled with complaints about me taking away Maria’s time, requests for help with homework, or requests to assist with various committee tasks. It’s nothing but a bunch of requests for a lackey.

“Hmm, there’s really nothing decent inside here.” (Louis)

Originally, I thought that more genuine concerns would be sent if the process was made easier but I guess not.

Well, looking back on my own student days, I remember only ever being troubled by trivial things and being tossed around by trivial matters.

So, it’s only natural that such consultations are sent, but even so, couldn’t there have been at least one good request?

“Oh well. If they don’t come to us, then I’ll go looking for them. Tomorrow, I’ll take Maria and go find someone who seems troubled.” (Louis)

With that decision, now comes the problem of where should I start searching.

The courtyard, the library, behind the school building…

I think those are the usual places, but will it be that easy to find someone?

Well, at worst, I can ask around Leila’s circle of friends to see if I can find anyone who fits the criteria.

If she introduces them, they probably won’t be weird or anything.

“Well then, it’s about time for my meeting with Irina.” (Louis)

Today, I managed to make some time for just the two of us after a long while.

Lately, I’ve been so preoccupied with Maria, that I haven’t been able to spend much time with Irina.

Of course, I know it’s important to spend some time alone with her occasionally.

After all, we finally became a couple after dreaming about it for so long.


I had arranged to meet Irina in her dorm room.

When I arrived, she was already there, scribbling something on a piece of paper.

“Sorry, am I late?” (Louis)

As I spoke from behind, Irina jumped in surprise, her body twitching. She quickly stowed away the paper she had been writing on into her bag and turned towards me.

“…Mouu, Louis. Don’t startle me like that.” (Irina)

“Sorry, sorry. I didn’t mean to startle you.” (Louis)

“Hmph, are you saying that I startled myself?” (Irina)

Irina puffed out her cheeks in a sulky manner, but it seemed more like she wanted to be spoiled.

As expected of the cutest girl in the world.

“Haha, sorry about that, it was my fault~” (Louis)

“I won’t forgive you. You’ll have to make it up to me.” (Irina)

“Alright, alright, I’ll make it up to you. What should I do for you, my princess?” (Louis)

Hearing this, Irina put on a dignified act and declared:

“Then, for the rest of today, you must go along with any of my whims.” (Irina)

“…Eh, what are you going to make me do?” (Louis)

Irina’s words make me instinctively tense up, but she continues to smile mischievously and raises her index finger.

“First, I’ll ask you to clean my ears.” (Irina)

“Ear cleaning…?” (Louis)

Using an earpick, huh?

Before I can say anything, Irina lies down on the bed, welcoming me at any time.

I cautiously sit down near her head as she lifts it up and places it on my thigh.

…Well, I haven’t been able to pay much attention to her lately so let’s let her indulge to her heart’s content.

With a cotton swab in hand, I gently clean Irina’s ears.

She closes her eyes, looking blissful and content.

After finishing one side, she lifts her head and pats her own thigh.

“Um…” (Louis)

“I’ll do it for you too, Louis. Put your head here.” (Irina)

I did as she said and rested my head on her thigh.

…It feels very soft and elastic. And despite being toned, it has a good amount of flesh, giving it a supple feel.

After that, she started slowly and gently cleaning my ear.

I can safely say that this was the most pleasant thing I have ever experienced throughout my entire life, including my past life.

Afterwards, we engaged in trivial conversations, did homework together, and spent some much-needed quality time together.

“The sun is going to set soon.” (Irina)

“Yeah, I should head back before the girls from the dorms return from club activities.” (Louis)

Fufu~ I don’t think anyone would think much if Louis was in the girls’ dorm at this point.” (Irina)

“No, that would still be a problem.” (Louis)

Certainly, given my already questionable reputation, being in the girls’ dormitory wouldn’t shock anyone.

…But I’m sure there would be still some disapproval among the many girls living there.

“Either way, it’s not good for everyone to see, so I’ll head back.” (Louis)

“Yeah, see you, Louis.” (Irina)

With that, I returned to my own room.

Normally, due to the influence of the absorbed ‘Dark Factor’, I would always have terrible nightmares at night… but just for today, I was able to have a slightly pleasant dream.

TL notes:
