Chapter 45: A Gentleman's Act

Yuuki thought, 'what kind of song that I'll play first?' He looked at the audience who tried to relax after their activities in the morning and afternoon. He knew that he needed to play a relaxing song so they could relax.

He started to play his piano and the slow melody started to echo through the room. This melody made people who heard it start to smile and relax. They were in a happy mood while talking to their friends. They felt like this song could cure their tired body and smile happily.

Yuuki was also happy to play this song. He played 'Harvest Moon Ost.' in his musical performances. He felt this song was very suitable for this occasion. He played happily and was immersed in his performance.

Little did, Yuuki knew there was someone who tried to record him with her phone.


Yuuki played for an hour and decided it was time to end it. He played his last song then he said goodbye to everyone.

[Quest Complete: Congratulations on becoming the pianist at Hitotose Cafe and play there regularly]

[Reward: A super hearing aids..]

[System tips - You need to go to Hitotose Cafe regularly to play. You'll make the owner's daughter happy with your presence.]

Yuuki looked at the quest notice and looked at his reward curiously. It was his first time seeing a hearing aid. It looked like an earphone from your phone. He didn't know the difference between normal and this super hearing aids.

'Well, I'll keep it first,' Yuuki kept it in his pocket.

"Yuuki, that song is great, it's really relaxing and makes me happy!" Miyuki came to him with an excited expression.

"Yeah, it's really great!" Kuina praised it.

"Yu-Yuuki, thank you, this song makes me more relaxed to server the guests," Hina-chan felt grateful.

Yuuki nodded at them and looked toward Chiaki who had a different expression from everyone. She walked toward him and held both of his shoulders.

"Please, play every day in our cafe!" Chiaki said with a serious expression. Today, profit really made her stupified, she had never thought that with just music performance from Yuuki. Her cafe could get several times its profit.

Yuuki twitched his lips when he heard it. He smiled lightly at her, "Sorry, Chiaki, I can come every day, but if it's 3 times a week, I'll be able to do it."

"Well, 3 days is good," Chiaki nodded, and she felt disappointed but didn't force him. She didn't pay him after all, it would be nice if Yuuki was her boyfriend or husband. She could let him play in this store every day.

"I'll going home, can you make me dinner?" Yuuki asked.

"Yes, I'm already preparing it for you!" Miyuki said.

"Thank you," Yuuki changed his clothes and ate his food.

"Hmm, this is good!" Yuuki was amazed. The food was probably on the same level as Raku or higher.

"Really! I'm glad that you like it," Miyuki said in relief.

"I'm sure, your husband will be happy to have a delicious food every day," Yuuki praised.

"Hu-husband!" Miyuki was blushing hard and covered her face with her hands.

Yuuki smiled at how cute she was until he felt the cold air around him.

"Yuuki, I don't think it's nice to tease, Miyu-chan!" Hina-chan looked quite scary.

'Hello? Hina-chan? Is it really Hina-chan?' Yuuki looked amazed at her.

"Yeah, Yuuki, it's not nice to tease, Miyu-chan," Kuina also reprimanded him.

"Even though I want you to play every day but you can't tease, Miyu-chan too much!" Chiaki reprimanded him.

Yuuki could only twitch his lips and let them reprimand him. He could only look at Miyuki, who was trying hard to hide her blushing.

'Kawaii," Yuuki was mesmerized by her and made Hina-chan, Kuina, and Chiaki madder.


"Sigh, Hina-chan is quite scary," Yuuki shook his head. He had never thought that the cute and always nervous Hina-chan would become an 'Oni' if he forced it. He was lucky to know her other side though.

Yuuki was walking to his apartment. He had already told everyone that he would be late because he had some matters he needed to do.

"What are you doing?" Eriri was curious.

"I'm going to play piano in a cafe," Yuuki said.

"YOU CAN PLAY PIANO?" Eriri and Tsubasa were startled and asked him a lot of questions. Utaha didn't join them and Yuuki knew that she was listening. He said that he would play for an hour there. They were curious and wanted to see him too, but he told them that they could see him play later. They needed to finish their game after all.

Yuuki walked to his apartment but stopped when he saw someone who was looking for something on the street.

Yuuki looked at the back of this person and knew this was a girl. As a gentleman, he needed to help girls in need or else he couldn't call himself a gentleman. He walked slowly and asked her,

"Hello, did you search for something?" Yuuki asked, "I can help you."

Yuuki was waiting for her answer, but she didn't answer him. It was as if she hadn't heard of him.

'Is she ignoring me?' Yuuki felt quite hurt. He tried to call her again, "Did you need help? I can help you search it." He asked her again, but she ignored him.

Yuuki sighed and decided to tap her shoulder. He tapped her shoulder and asked her, "Can I help you?"


She turned her head and saw a young man in front of her. She was tense but she stopped when she saw his gentle smile.

She looked at him saying something to him. She took out a book from her bag and wrote something.

She showed him a paper that was written, [Yes?]
