Usually I could easily see Senjougahara at school, but seldom do I have time to meet her on Sundays, but that day, shockingly we met up during the day.
Having said that, it’s just that she got from her father a free coupon for a cake buffet that is limited for use on Sunday, she suddenly wanted to use it. It’s a dessert café that is too expensive for civilians, in order for the shop to maintain its style, usually it does not take up a pirate-like behaviour such as buffets, but it seems to be the shop’s anniversary.
Speaking of eating cakes freely, this means that when I am standing in front of the counter full of donuts, I can’t promise whether or not Shinobu will appear from my shadow, of course that guy have never came out in front of Senjougahara, also she has never been moved by any other donuts other than the ones from Mr. Donuts (that guy basically doesn’t eat human food), so I can tentatively relax.
If there is a concern, it is the store’s exterior, boys seem to need a certain degree of courage in order to go in, which made me so angry I stood straight, but I need to tolerate it.
Senjougahara’s mockery already doesn’t bother me anymore, and the cakes themselves are rich in types, also the taste is by far the best I have eaten, so I will not care about anything else.
Even bigger things are just trivial in front of all these food. The fact that humans are animals dominated by food, I suddenly felt I experienced it deeply.
No, it’s the same even for vampires.
"Senjougahara. You, got fat?"
I taking a break, inadvertently said it.
Although recently I haven’t watched any comedy shows, but I could still describe the image, in the next instant, like throwing a party, a fancy cake flew towards my face.
I don’t know if it’s for the convenience of the guests to eat, or it was designed that way, this piece of fancy cake, was much smaller than imagined, it could be said it was mini-sized, so very luckily, my face and clothes were not dirtied , the cake was directly enveloped by my mouth.
It was a very direct method of eating.
"Huh? You said something that you shouldn’t have said? Araragi-kun."
Senjougahara’s eyes were opened very big.
Her deadpan look was very frightening.
"Girls don’t get fat."
"Oh ... ... is it?"
"Yes. Girls only grow."
Senjougahara placed the fork in her hand, and from a section of the cake she started exaggeratingly eating it one after another in sequence.
"This is not getting fat, this is just growing."
What an amazing explanation.
"If I keep eating lots and lots like this, then soon I will become two people."
"Scary in many ways."
The explanation is scary, having two of you is even more scary.
"Say, you, was too thin before, so if you were to add a little bit of weight now, the extra flesh would be very obvious."
"Don’t say the flesh will be very obvious."
Senjougahara was posing while holding the fork.
In front of me who is her boyfriend.
... ... Something worth mentioning, if it was Senjougahara from some time ago, then certainly mercilessly, instead of throwing the cake from the beginning, she’ll attack me by directly throw the fork at me, thinking of this point, I felt she has calmed a lot.
But certainly I can’t say that she has become very gentle.
"Speaking to the end Araragi-kun, talking about things involving weight in front of a girl, that is just too sensitive."
Actually that is right.
But seeing Senjougahara eating so happily, I was shocked even as I was drinking black tea, so I wanted to pull her down a notch.
On this steel skin face or rather steel shell face, to reveal a little flaw in that face.
Basically I wanted to do some mischief.
"Although I didn’t want to say it but recently I did gain a little weight."
"Hmm. So it’s actually true."
I thought it was an illusion.
"Ah. Specifically about five kilograms."
"By that much, what!?"
Isn’t that the same as her weight when she was possessed by the crab!
In this sense, it’s the addition of one person’s worth.
"What is wrong? It’s a popular scenario that’s been coming out lately."
"No, that’s not the case. If it is the flesh that coming out then it’s really frightening."
"You're really annoying. Be careful with me making your internal organs fly out."
The visceral fats coming out.
I hate this kind of 3D effect.
But I actually can’t tell she got fat... ... but, she gained a lot, ah.
"So it really is better if you returned to the track and field team? This way you can also stay in shape."
Senjougahara really hates things about the past, especially things in middle school, but this time she didn’t refute, like she’s thinking deeply about something.
"Let me explain something."
Senjougahara said, while eating cake.
"Being able to eat what you love like this, and also being able to until you’re full, until awhile ago this was unimaginable, that’s why I’m really happy.”
"Think about it. Back then because of the crab, I – didn’t have any weight. So just like limiting the weight of my clothings, I also have to limit food intake."
Eat too much – you’ll get heavy.
"Ah ... ..."
Because being overly thin - because of this kind of reason.
In the end, Senjougahara is considered tall among girls (even taller than me), even if she gained five kilograms, actually it probably is still far from reaching the standard weight.
"Being able to eat what you love until you’re full, is great. Having a real sense of that love."
Senjougahara repeated that continuously.
"When I love something, I will get a small feeling of being saved. Although of course I may be a person who has committed a lot of mistakes - but at least when I see something good it is still something good, I still have this kind of emotion, so I am able to forgive myself a little. "
No - I can understand this point.
Saying I understood, it is better to say I have personally experienced it.
Perhaps, the opposite.
Only after you love something, you can feel like you’re being saved, or being forgiven, only people like me and Senjougahara would have this kind of feeling –
"I like the me who is liking something, so, or you can say in love with a girl in love, so, of course this short phase has a denying meaning—but is there anything wrong?"
This is something from someone who has never hated herself - she said.
"That maybe true ... ... but that can’t be a reason for overeating cake. Everything must have a limit."
Senjougahra nodded, but her hands didn’t stop.
In the end, Senjougahara’s family’s economic condition has not recover, so maybe there’s very little opportunities to eat this much.
But even if you say I’m crazy, actually I still feel slightly that girls with a bit of meat is cuter, you can even say that I even want her to gain two more kilograms,
"So are you going to start jogging with Kanbaru?"
"Forget it. That guy's weight loss method can’t be followed by ordinary people."
"However, while talking, I found that Araragi-kun can really eat. I’m telling you in advance, Araragi-kun, if your BMI goes over 20, I will ruthlessly break up with you."
"This benchmark is too strict."
20. This is even stricter than the metabolic syndrome.
"Ah, but this should be no problem."
"You seem very confident. Why?"
"No, I only recently discovered it, this can be regarded as one of the few physical advantages of vampires. Vampires’ speciality is the body is able to maintain a sound condition, if it goes over a certain value, it will naturally return to the optimum body weight, that is to say I won’t get fat."
Senjougahara’s fork fell to the ground.
She used a stunned expression –by the way what kind of expression was this, I have never seen it before.
The expressionless attribute collapsed.
"No, but, this is just a side effect. Not as tight as like Kanbaru. So I can still get a bit fat. So, I’m still very jealous of that guy - hmm, Senjougahara-san?"
"How enviable ... ..."
I was harshly glared at.
"This kind of rule-breaking tactic, I will never accept it... ... you have this kind of body and also use this condescending view to judge my weight gain ... ..."
"No, no, I'm not judging you."
"Okay, you’ll see. Araragi-kun who relies on Kaiis, I'll let you see the possibility of human beings. The parts that I grew, I’ll lose it in an instant – I declare it here, the Senjougahra weight loss plan activate. "
"Weight, weight loss plan ... ..."
So it’s not losing fat? A gross exaggeration.
"Ah. I’ll start the fight immediately after I finish this meal!"
Senjougahara said, and using her hands to grab the cake, eating it mouthful by mouthful (because the fork just fell on the ground). Then at an alarming rate she started eating the cake on my plate.
In short, originally I even worried if she was going to finish up all the cake in the place, but seeing the expressionless her enjoying the mood of liking something, I do not want to pull her down anymore.
As long as Senjougahra is happy, even if I don’t eat cake, I will also feel happy.
Today was the best day.
... ... A follow-up story by the way, after that, Senjougahara really began training with Kanbaru together, just like a joke, in a short amount of time she successfully loss weight.
Sure enough, you can not underestimate her perseverance.
BTW I couldn't find the raws for this so this is entirely from the chinese translation so take the accuracy of this with a grain of salt.
With this being said, if someone can get me the raws it would be great.
