The Incubus System Chapter 140. (Un)tragic Romeo
I walked over to the empty seats in the Cafeteria with a cup of coffee in my hand. While Larry brought a tray of a sandwich and a drink beside me. After we were kicked out of the library, Larry and I decided to grab some coffee at the Cafeteria. While Emma and Olivia went to the printer room.
"You shouldn't call Olivia like that," I complained as I took a seat.
"What can I say She looks like a crazy bodyguard to me." Larry took a seat across from me.
"She's acting like that, not because she wants it." After I knew about her family, I understood her.
"Fine, I'll try." Then he took a bite of his sandwich indifferently.
I sighed and took a sip on my coffee. Actually, I still wanted to nag him, but I remembered what happened to him yesterday, so I cancelled my intention.
"Oh, I fowgot to tew you. How about we hav diwnner wit my famewly tomowow I just fowund a goow cafe in Nighthallow City last night," he said in a mouthful.
I chuckled since I remembered his challenge yesterday.
"Please don't say you'll bring 'nana-chan'," I said in a teasing tone.
"Of course not!" he retorted quickly. Then he looked at the sandwich in his hand in annoyance.
"You know... my mom almost threw it away this morning. Good thing I was able to save it," he pouted. Then he took another big bite as if he was venting his frustration to that innocent sandwich.
"Have you moved it to a safe place" I asked as I took another sip of my coffee. What I meant was his demon hunter uniform.
He lifted his head, showing his sullen face to me.
"Yeah, I had no choice but to lock 'nana-chan' in the wardrobe. I don't understand why my mom acted that cruel..." His eyes stared sadly at the sandwich in his hand for a moment.
"Though I just washed it last night ..." he muttered.
* Cough * * Cough * * Cough *
I choked after I heard his words. My hand quickly lowered my coffee cup, while another covered my mouth.
"What's wrong with you" asked Larry with a frown.
"Wait. You washed it I mean --- Have you used it before" I asked in disbelief as soon as I could make my voice. I didn't expect him to be that desperate.
"Of course, I used it. I used it every night," he said with a frown.
"Geez, why do you think I put it on my bed." Then he took the last bite of his sandwich with an annoyed face.
My jaw dropped in shock after hearing his confession. I never thought he was that pathetic.
"You use 'nana-chan' every night" I confirmed once again in disbelief.
"Ye ---" He paused as he realized something. Then he started to panic.
"No, I don't use 'nana-chan'. I mean --- I do use it but it's not what you think," he explained awkwardly.
'Wait ... Maybe what he means is his demon hunter uniform,' I remembered there was an unwashed uniform under his bed yesterday. Maybe he just washed it and put it in 'nana-chan' but his mother threw it away, so he had to wash it again.
"You have to believe me, I'm not a body pillow rapist! I'm innocent!" he insisted. His tone sounded like a criminal who was trying to defend himself in front of a detective who was interrogating him. His eyes looked at me, showing how serious he was.
"Oh! My girlfriend agreed to have dinner with us tomorrow. My mom will come with us too," he created an alibi and proof that he was innocent.
"Okay, okay. I trust you," I comforted him as I used my skill.

I realized his relationship status didn't change.
'Girlfriend Yeah, right ... 'But I also realized he had just acquired a new skill, Holy Blast.
'That's why he looks so happy.'
"But tomorrow I have a work schedule at 06.00 PM," I said. Even though I had controlled Ian and the others to prepare everything, I also had to prepare myself for tomorrow and make sure Miguel and Myra fall into my trap.
"It's okay. My work schedule is also 06.00 PM tomorrow. I know it's too early, but I think we'll start our dinner at 4:30 PM. What do you think"
My brain deep in thought to arrange my schedule since I was getting busy lately.
"Okay," I agreed.
Then he smirked and narrowed his eyes.
"Don't forget to bring your girlfriend, okay" he reminded me.
I gasped when I just realized I agreed before asking one of my partners. Besides, I was still in a dilemma about who I should bring to the dinner. Actually, I wanted to bring Olivia, but after seeing her state and her family's chaotic condition, I decided to cancel my intention. Whereas I couldn't possibly bring Diamond, since it would be a scandal for Diamond College. And I could imagine Larry's laughter if I brought Celia.
'I hope Emma will agree to company me tomorrow.'
"Wahahaha!" Larry's laughter brought my attention back to him.
"What" I asked with a frown.
"Are you just pretending to have a girlfriend" His chuckles were heard between his words.
I sighed and replied with a flat stare.
"Don't equate me with you," I said calmly before I took another sip of my coffee.
He looked a little panicked.
"What do you mean" he said awkwardly, his eyes glancing from side to side trying to escape my sight, like a thief caught in the act.
I smirked since I knew I guessed it right. That's why he looked panicked.
Noticing my smirk, he raised his head and looked at me with a serious gaze.
"Tomorrow I will prove it to you. You will be amazed with my girlfriend. There are so many men who like her but she refuses because she loves me."
"Ho-- Really" I said as I leaned my back against my chair casually. My arms were folded in front of my chest and my smirk remained on my lips, showing I didn't believe his words.
"Hey, I'm serious." He leaned his body forward and turned his head from side to side before returning his gaze to me as if he was going to tell me an important secret.
"She's really deep in love with me. She has been my stalker for several weeks, giving me things even though I didn't ask for it and came to my house for no reason." He shook his head before returning his gaze to me.
"I am truly touched by her sincerity. That's why…" He raised his head looking up at the sky from the large window at our side, his hand clutched his chest. A wistful smile appeared on his lips.
"I decided to accept her love. Even though I must become the other men's enemy. After all, breaking a woman's heart is not for a gentleman like me ..." A long breath escaped his mouth.
"Let me be a tragic hero for her beautiful love. I will always be her Romeo."
A burst of laughter came out of my mouth since I couldn't take it anymore. He should have joined the drama club instead of being a demon hunter.
He turned to me with an annoyed face.
"Hey, I mean it!"
"You know, your girlfriend sounds more like a psycho than a normal woman," I said as I could make my voice and swallow the rest of my laughter.
"What are you talking about Of course, she's a normal woman. I'm the one who makes her like that, because she loves me too much!" He sighed once again and shook his head in disappointment.
"Ethan, I know I won't be able to compete with you in academics, but when it comes to love, you should learn a lot from me. My love story is similar to the romance movie."
I covered my mouth with my hand once again to hold back my laughter. My tears began to appear in the corners of my eyes.
"Okay, I trust you. I trust you," I gave up since my stomach started to ache from my laughter. Besides, I knew he was already gone too far just to maintain his pride.
He snorted in annoyance.
"I know you don't believe me. We'll see about that tomorrow," he said irritably.
"Of course. I can't wait to meet your girlfriend."-
