Heroine ni Naritai:
Chp.1: Midori no No.1 Boy
(Midori's number 1 boy)
Midori, Sayako and Rui are all sleeping at Midori's house. The three of them
go to the last year in the same school, are in the same class and are the
best of friends. As they go to sleep, Midori thinks and dreams about her idol,
Mizushima, an ace in volley-ball and member of the national Japanese team.
And so, big is Midori's surprise when the next day the teacher presents a
new student, Mizushima Tatsuru!
However, this Mizushima has nothing to do with the other Mizushima, and because
Midori is such a big fan of the volley-player Mizushima, the teacher tells Tatsuru
to sit at her side. This doesn't make Midori too happy and she seems to hate him
because of the shock. (Tatsuru is a very nice, simple-looking boy with glasses--
he has nothing to do with her idol!)
In one of the rests, Sayako and Rui talk with Tutsuru and find him a very
agreeable and sweet person. They take him to see Midori as she trains (she is
very good at volley-ball), and Tatsuru is very impressed with her. But Midori sees
him and tries to act as if she wouldn't have noticed they were there, finishing
with a good bruise in her head for not paying attention to the ball ^^
As another day passes, Midori finds herself more and more affected everytime
somebody calls Mizushima, and when a classmate teases her about liking "Mizushima"
and getting engaged to "Mizushima" (reffering to Tatsuru and playing on Midori's
liking to the volley-Mizushima), Midori explodes and slaps her classmate--making him
fall the stairs right over poor Tatsuru!
Tatsuru's glasses are broken (he's still using them, though), and Midori is
sorry for it, so she goes to his place to apologize with a cake as a present.
Tatsuru finds her in the outside after she decides not to call after all. There
Midori realizes how nice he is and between some things and the others the cake
finish on the floor lying down (^^).
A very happy Tatsuru invites to drink some tea and eat the cake (or what's left of) in his
apartment (a little, cozy one). Midori has a shame-attack because of the way she has
treated him (and for what she has thought about him) and apologizes profusely.
He tries to calm her down and finishes saying that he likes him (in other words). They
both grow very flushed and nervous. Midori tries to get his glasses of because she wants
to compensate/pay for them, but when she finally takes a look at him without them... He's
really good-looking! Midori is taken by surprise by this and because of his proximity
and grows even more flushed and
nervous.... until the water boiler starts to beep and she runs away in confusion
leaving poor Tatsuru blushing and blind (^^;;;)
The next day Tatsuru appears without glasses--he's using compacts now--and Midori
keeps on blushing (much to her annoyance). When they arrive at their classroom they
discover that some idiot has been writing things about Midori and Tatsuru on the
Tatsuru is angry at this and goes to erase them, but Midori stops him and tells the
whole class that they are now a couple!
Tatsuru doesn't know what's going on (just like the rest of the class ^^; ) and Midori
ends up declaring that she likes him very much. It's too much for poor Tatsuru and he
faints right away (probably all that blood in his face... ^^ )
After classes Midori meets with Mizushima, who was waiting for him. Students around
them are gossiping very happily about them both, but they couldn't care less. The stupid
classmate shows up with a magazine that features the last scandal from Mizushima and
another woman, hoping to make her mad. But after a quick, bored look at it she throws
it away--she doesn't care about that anymore, she now has her own Mizushima! ^^
