"Hurry up and enter! Don't let anyone know that you've entered this school!"
Haru was being pushed to the Idol Research Club's clubroom. It was his first time here and he had to admit that this room was very small. In the middle of the room, there was a large table and because of that there were only two small aisles within this room.
However, inside this room, there were a variety of posters, idol books, etc that were collected within.
"How did you get all of this?" Haru had to admit that he was a bit amazed at the collection of idol merchandise in this room. "This isn't cheap, right?"
At that moment, everyone was looking at Nico with a speechless expression.
"W, why are you looking at me like that?!" Nico panicked and felt a bit guilty.
"Well, Haru, the truth is...."
Umi started to tell Haru that their club had money, but all of it was being used by Nico to buy an idol's merchandise. It was also the reason why they were short of money to make costumes, decorations, and various other things.
"If it's money, then you don't need to worry. I've told you before that I'll get a sponsorship for all of you, right?" Haru said.
"See? You don't need to worry!" Nico said with a smile.
However, everyone was looking at Nico with a speechless expression since it was all this girl's fault!
"Nico-chan... it seems that you don't repent your mistake...."
Nozomi started to move her hands strangely then started to rub Nico's b.r.e.a.s.ts.
Haru looked at Nozomi and Nico, and knew that Nozomi was helping Nico to increase her b.o.o.b.s.
"Haru, you can't watch it!" Eli closed Haru's eyes with her hands.
Maki hummed while twirling the end of her hair. She looked at Haru and Eli with an annoyed expression. She wanted to hug him right away, but she was too embarrassed to do it in front of everyone.
After that messy thing, everyone sat down on chairs, waiting for the concert while talking to each other.
Haru sat between Eli and Maki, and he could see that Nozomi who sat in front of him was smiling, but then suddenly he felt bare feet touching his leg which made him frown. He looked up and could see that Nozomi was talking with Kotori who was beside her.
Haru sighed and wondered how to handle this situation. Out of nine girls on Muse, he had eaten two girls and he hoped to not eat anymore, but it seemed that it was a bit hard since Eli had also started her attack on him.
The concert would start later, so they decided to have lunch first before they went out to prepare themselves.
"Aren't there any classes today?" Haru asked.
"Everyone is preparing for Open Day so the class is quite free," Umi said.
"I see..." Haru touched his stomach and felt a bit hungry somehow. He thought that he should eat something before he came.
"Haru, I've brought a bento for you," Eli said and took out a bento box on the table.
"How about you? Don't you eat something?" Haru asked.
"Well, I've brought two bentos with me." Eli showed another box in her hand.
Haru nodded and didn't reject since he was quite hungry, but then his t-shirt was pulled.
"Thank you. It seems that you've always brought me bento."
Eli smiled and asked, "Was it good?"
"Of course." Haru had to admit that Eli was quite good at cooking. Even though it wasn't perfect, it tasted good since he could feel her feeling.
"I've brought a bento too," Maki said.
Unlike Eli's normal bento box, Maki's bento box was very large and luxurious. It was the one which was usually taken on a picnic or an event.
The other members of Muse looked at this interaction while eating their lunch.
"Is this alright?" Kotori whispered to Nozomi.
"What do you mean?" Nozomi asked with a smile.
"N, nothing!" Kotori became scared since she was afraid of Nozomi's claws kneading her b.r.e.a.s.ts.
Nozomi smiled and whispered, "You're very sharp, Kotori-chan."
Kotori became depressed at that moment.
"But you should think about your friend, you can see that she hasn't eaten her bread for a while," Nozomi said.
Kotori then turned and saw Honoka who was eating her bread slowly. "Honoka-chan...."
But it seemed that Honoka quickly regained her vigor and became excited again so no one seemed to realize that she was a bit depressed before.
Eli and Maki looked at each other before looking at Haru.
"You're very popular, Haru!" Nozomi said with a smile.
"There is a lot of food! I want to eat too!" Honoka and Hanayo said with bright eyes and drools in their mouths.
"You ate a lot of things last week! You can't eat and you need to do a weight loss program!" Umi said with stern expression.
Haru looked at two bento boxes in front of him and he suddenly remembered something. "Maki, did you cook the bento by yourself?"
"No, I got my maid to do it," Maki said and sighed. She knew that her cooking skill wasn't good and she was very clumsy.
Haru sighed in relief and also didn't think that Maki's bento was being made by herself since it was too luxurious.
"What's that? Why are you sighing in relief?" Maki was annoyed.
"Nothing. I just don't want to die today," Haru said.
"I, I've learned cooking! Watch me! I'll cook something by myself!" Maki would show that she could cook something.
"W, what?" Maki was startled when this guy suddenly raised his voice.
"Don't force yourself," Haru said with an emphatic expression.
"Haru, you bastard?!" Maki was mad and started to hit him.
"Sorry, sorry, I'm just joking."
Everyone stared at both of them with a strange expression since rather than fighting, it seemed that they were flirting with each other.
"Haru, why don't you eat?" Eli suddenly interrupted.
Haru looked at two bentos in front of him.
There were three layers of boxes on Maki's bento and there were a lot of things inside from egg rolls, tempura, salmon etc. There was even lobster within this box.
Haru thought that Eli would cook a pirozhki, but what was presented was a fried potato, braised pork, ham, etc, and mainly chinese food which made him feel a bit strange.
If it was normal people, then it would very painful to eat two bentos in front of them since the amount was a lot.
Everyone stared at Haru at this moment and wondered which bentos he would choose to eat.
For a moment the atmosphere turned silent and no one talked at that moment.
Then that silence was broken by Haru.
"Thank you, I'm a bit hungry since I haven't eaten anything in the morning." Haru didn't waste his time and started to eat two bentos at the same time. "Delicious!"
Nozomi sighed in relief and gave him a thumbs up.
Eli and Maki nodded and also started to eat.
Haru knew that he had avoided the storm, but he knew that it was calm before a harder storm since he needed to think what he should do with Eli at this moment.
