Sweeping the garden within the shrine, Haru yawned since it was quite a lazy day. Nothing special happened in the past few days besides having a friendly match with his girlfriends.
Sora, Megumi, and Kasumi needed more time since they needed to confirm the identity of the ill.u.s.trator since it seemed that it was harder than they had thought.
Kirari was doing her job as the president of the student council of Hyakkou Academy. She was the leader after all and there were a lot of things which needed to be done by her.
Erina was also quite busy since she needed to prepare for the training camp which was about to be held soon. She told him several times to bring a lot of things and he needed to come no matter what.
Haru didn't really mind coming to the training camp Tootsuki Academy since he wasn't that busy. Even though he was a billionaire, he had a lot of people under him and he didn't need to do anything by himself. He only needed to give instructions and they would do their best to follow his instructions.
Because he wasn't that busy, he decided to come to the shrine to help Nozomi since she was the only shrine maiden in his shrine.
Haru had promised to become a producer for Honoka, Umi, and Kotori and his first task as a producer was to invite more members, and it seemed that they were happy when they heard it since the more the merrier it was.
'Hmm... I shouldn't control them too much.'
Haru wasn't sure what their purpose was to become a school idol and he thought that he needed to talk about that matter first. He knew that they wanted to save the school, but he wanted to hear it right from their mouth since being an idol was very hard. He also didn't want to control or force them, his intention to become producer was to support them after all.
"Haru, I've heard that you're going to become a producer of those girls." Nozomi stood beside him and asked.
"Yes." Haru nodded and looked at Nozomi. "You should enter too."
"Eh? Me?" Nozomi was startled.
"Why not? You're a beautiful girl and you have your own characteristics." Haru felt that Nozomi would be good to become part of Muse.
"Characteristics? What are my characteristics?" Nozomi asked curiously.
Haru looked at Nozomi for a while and said, "Chubby?"
Nozomi raised her broom and wanted to hit Haru.
"I was joking. I was joking." Haru tried to act as pitiful as possible which made Nozomi, snorted, and pout.
"I know that I'm fat. You don't need to say that to make me feel better."
Nozomi knew that her body was a bit bigger, and she felt a bit frustated by it wondering whether her body was the reason why she wasn't attractive in his eyes.
"What are you talking about? Your body is very attractive. If possible, I want to hug you now."
Haru was wondering whether he had said something wrong since he could see that Nozomi was staring at him intently.
"You want to hug me?"
"I mean.. It's just a saying, you don't need to take it seriously." Haru felt that it was a bit wrong to hug her so suddenly.
"So am I not attractive?"
"Then prove it to me." Nozomi opened her arms waiting for him to hug her.
Haru wasn't a man if he didn't accept this and he didn't hesitate to hug her. He hugged her waist and felt that her body was very soft. He had to admit that he could hug her forever. He could also feel her large b.r.e.a.s.ts pressed into his chest which made him want to hug her tighter, but he held himself back.
"You smell good, Nozomi."
Nozomi seemed to be proud and also hugged Haru. She didn't expect that his body was very hard and it gave her a sense of security. Her parents had been away for work and she had been living alone in this town. She didn't have many friends and her only close friend was Eli. Working at the shrine might be her hobby, but her true intention was to find something to do since it was too boring staying at her home alone.
Nozomi had a secret, but she couldn't tell anyone about it.
Nozomi and Haru were startled then noticed Eli who was staring at both of them.
Eli was wearing a school uniform and seemed to have been standing in that place for a while.
"This.... Nozomi has said that she has gotten fatter earlier. I'm trying to see whether it is true or not." Haru hoped that Nozomi wasn't offended by his words, though, he knew that it was impossible.
Nozomi was furious and wanted to slap Haru.
Eli sighed and said, "So what do you want to talk about?"
"Eli, please join the school idol group." Haru didn't hesitate and invited Eli to join Muse.
"Eh?" Eli was startled and blushed. "D, do you want me to join that group?"
"Yes, I feel that they have potential and with you joining their group, I'm sure this school idol group will become even more amazing with you there."
Haru told the truth since Eli became part of Muse, the power level of Muse would increase (he used a game as a metaphor in this case).
Eli folded her arms and asked, "Are you sure? Are you sure that they're not playing?" She didn't mind joining the school idol and she knew that it could be used to promote their school so they could save their school from being closed.
"They're not playing. I can see that their feeling of saving the school isn't going to lose against you." Haru looked at Eli straight and said, "You have seen how they dance, right? In your opinion, what do you think of their dance during that performance?"
It was simple and straight, but it had described all of Eli's feelings toward the first performance of Honoka, Umi, and Kotori.
"They lack a choreographer and you're the person that they need." Haru knew that Eli had learned dance from her childhood since she had told him about that matter before.
"But can you make sure that we can defeat all of those school idols? They have the support of a large company or large school," Eli said with a frown.
"That's why I'm here." Haru moved closer to Eli and the distance between the two of them was very close which made her blush. "I'm here to support you. You want to save the school, right?"
"Yes." Eli blushed, but nodded.
"Good, leave it to me. No, believe me." Haru swiftly held her hands tenderly staring at her eyes.
"C, Can I believe in you?"
Haru could make them the winner of Love Live since he was the one who owned the program, but he needed to make sure that their performance wasn't that embarrassing after all they were only a student.
School idols are different from professional idols since they don't have help from agencies, but at the same time, it is what makes them very interesting since they're doing their best on their own.
Haru loved it when someone worked hard and he didn't mind helping Honoka, Umi, and Kotori after he had seen their determination during that concert before.
"Haru..." Eli nodded and said, "I'll join them."
"That's good!" Haru was happy and hugged Eli unconsciously.
Eli was startled, but then she felt somehow very comfortable at this moment and subconsciously hugged him back.
But they forgot that there was someone beside them.
"Cough! Cough! Cough!"
Haru was wondering whether he should change the name "Kanda Shrine" (name of his shrine) to "Shrine of Debauchery".
