Beta is Being Chased by the Tyrant Alpha! - Chapter 24
It was the third period.
“Oi! Where are you going?”
Mizuki grabbed my wrist as I sprinted to the staff room while I held my T-shirt with both hands. Upon closer inspection it seemed Mizuki had just finished PE, seeing as he was wearing a jersey. I couldn’t hide my annoyance because of how stylishly he wore it. Well, the price of this school jersey is three times more expensive than a normal school jersey, so that explains it looking so good.
“What is it? Let me go…!”
I can’t help it, but in order to keep these wicked thoughts away, I lash out at Mizuki. The reason was simple: The jersey I was supposed to wear was covered in mud, and I had to rush to the staff room so that I could borrow another one in time for my next class.
Masaya and Shion were both staring at my locker surprised. Shion was having a harder time than I was, his eyes filled with tears. He must have been unhappy or jealous, because he saw me leaving with Mizuki yesterday. I couldn’t put on my brown, muddy, soaked gym clothes so I put them in a garbage bag.
“I’m asking you where you are going…!”
With the attitude of a king, Mizuki looked down at me angrily.
Why does he always have to be so bossy! I wish he could be like Kadokura! Kadokura wouldn’t be this hysterical!
With that thought in mind, I moved my wrist in a powerful swing, but it only swung like a pendulum. I glared at Mizuki, who refused to let go of me.
“I’m going to the staff room!”
I know that if I lie here, I will be thoroughly questioned and be forced to stay…
Or rather, if I’m late, my points will be deducted. I want to get out of here as quickly and as peacefully as possible.
“I’m going to borrow a j-jersey. I-I forgot mine.”
“I’ll lend you mine.”
“I said I’ll lend you mine!”
After shouting that, Mizuki took off the jersey he was wearing and threw it at me.
In the chilly hallway, he was wearing only a thin T-shirt and his muscular pecs stood out through his shirt, making my heart thump. As always, Mizuki’s well-trained body was incredibly appealing, even though he was not in the athletic department.
“Put this on!”
“Eh, uh, I-I don’t need it!”
“Shut up! Put this on and go!”
Why do I have to borrow a jersey from Mizuki? If Shigebu finds out about this, he’ll burn my whole desk…
Mizuki glared at me with fierce eyes and pushed his jacket tightly around me.
I found myself accepting the jersey, faltering and retreating.
“Hurry up! You’re going to be late.”
I looked at the clock in the hallway and saw that it was almost time for class to start.
Oh no! I have to go!
“I-I got it! T-thank you!”
I left the hallway, a little freaked out, leaving a grumpy Mizuki behind. As I ran, I put on Mizuki’s big jersey. The cuffs were too big and it smelled a little like sweat.
Why do I have to wear Mizuki’s used jersey?
With that thought in mind, I ran to the gym and found that the preparatory exercises had already started and everyone in the class was lined up in a row, moving their bodies in unison. I lined up at the very back of the line and hid myself, so that my big jersey would not stand out.
“Alice, are you okay?”
Masaya turned around and asked me in a whisper.
“Uh, yeah, I’m fine.”
“Oh, Alice, are… you… okay… hm?”
Shion, who was standing in line beside me, peeked out and called out to me with a worried look on his face.
Shi, shit… This is Mizuki’s jersey.
A chill ran down my spine at the thought that the frowning Shion would fall again. I was fearful that my shallow actions would cause Shion to suffer.
Shion tugged at my clothes with both hands, his nose twitching as he sniffed. I slowly try to get a little further away, but I’m way out of the line.
At that moment, I felt the gaze of my classmates, who had finished their preparatory exercises, focused on the rear part of the room at once.
“Alice, you smell so good, amazing!”
When I looked at Shion’s face, his slightly peachy skin turned red and he squeezed me tightly, and the Beta male teacher coughed as he was surprised.
“So-sorry! But what is this smell? Because you smell so good. Haa…”
Shion said this, yet still moved his body closer and intertwined his hands with mine. He doesn’t care that there are people around him.
Shion looked at me with a fascinated look, even though he had collapsed before.
“Ah, uh, um. Anyway, Shion, we should pay attention to class first…”
“T-that’s right. I’m so-sorry…”
I was worried about the change in Shion’s behavior, but he made it to the end of PE. Throughout class, Shion huddled next to me. I was worried about him, but our classmates were also quietly watching me. Then, after class was over, I was pulled aside by Shion.
“Alice, I’m still sorry! I know it’s impossible, but can I borrow that jersey? I’ll wash it and return it to you…”
Eh? Shion? Why would you say such a thing?
I stared at Shion’s face in surprise, but his expression was serious.
“So-sorry, this, this is borrowed…”
Perhaps to my relief, there is no name on the jersey. I guess Mizuki is too lazy to put his name on it. But I still don’t understand why Shion is so obsessed with it.
“Well, I’ll take care of that…! Hey, can’t I?”
Shion clasped his small hands together, and looked up at me with moist eyes.
“…Hm, sure. I’ll lend it to you!”
I’m weak to Shion’s dainty, beautiful face, which made me make the mistake of taking off my clothes and showing my transparent bandaids to the whole class.
