I Refuse To Become Scumbag In Tokyo

Chapter 101 - Shiinas Doubt

”It is said that everyone who has seen Shiina Yuuki ’s works will have a similar resonance. That is to say, his works can arouse the emotions of the people who see it, so the viewers will feel like they have entered the painting itself. ” Chihiro paused for a moment then looked at Shishio. ”I haven ’t seen Shiina Yuuki ’s painting with my own eyes, so when I saw your work before, although there was some speculation, I couldn ’t be sure, because this realm isn ’t something that can be achieved by hard work, which was why, I was so surprised after hearing Mashiro ’s words. ”

Chihiro rubbed her temple since Shishio ’s ability was beyond human capability, and wondered whether, in truth, Shishio was really a god that was born from her big sister ’s womb.​​

Shishio nodded and said, ”Chihiro-nee, I understand what you mean, but you should know that a lot of artists can ’t even pay for their meals, so I don ’t have the interest to become a painter. ” He told the truth, after all, even though becoming the god of a painter might sound quite good, it was only something vain and without money, nothing could be done.

”Shishio, with your skill, money will come toward you. ” Chihiro had a serious expression and said, ”You don ’t need to worry too much that you won ’t have money for a meal. ” She looked at Shishio and knew that this guy loved money, but she felt that it wasn ’t wrong since everyone needed money.

”That might be true if I ’m famous, but I ’m not famous, ” Shishio said simply, after all, no matter how good his painting was, without a reputation, no one was going to give his painting a price.

Chihiro thought for a while and said, ”Then how about if you join a competition? ”

”Competition? ” Shishio raised his eyebrow and felt quite interested.

Chihiro could see that Shishio was interested and she quickly explained about the art competition in Tokyo, and as long as he won, his reputation would be very loud, but she had to admit that even though Shishio didn ’t become a painter, he didn ’t need to worry about food and shelter since his family was very rich, but after all, no one wanted to become a NEET, and she thought that it would be great if everyone knew about his talent, but if he didn ’t want to then she wouldn ’t force him since everything was his choice.

Listening to Chihiro ’s explanation about the competition, Shishio would be lying if he wasn ’t interested, so he made up his decision. ”Then, when there ’s a competition, you can tell me, Chihiro-nee. ”

”Good, there should be one after the ”Golden Week ”, I ’ll tell you by that time, ” Chihiro said.

”Alright. ” Shishio nodded.

”Still, Shishio-kun, if you become the winner of the competition, will you become a painter? ” Misaki asked curiously.

”No. ” Shishio shook his head and said, ”I have my own dream. ”

”Oh? What is your dream? ” Chihiro asked with an interest.

Shiro-san and Ritsu also looked at Shishio curiously, wondering what Shishio ’s dream was.

”Tycoon, ” Shishio said simply.

”…. ” They thought that Shishio might have a meager dream such as opening a cafe, or restaurant, but they didn ’t expect that his ambition was so big.

”Good, I support you! If you become a tycoon, then you need to support me, Shishio, ” Chihiro said in a joke and didn ’t believe in Shishio ’s words since she knew that it was harder to become a tycoon than the best painter in this world.

”If you want, I can take care of you for my whole life, though, ” Shishio said while looking at Chihiro with a sincere expression.

”…. ”

Chihiro was in shock, then a blush started to cover her face and neck. Her head was in a mess, and she hoped for him to say that kind of words somewhere more private since that way, she could answer him seriously, since his words were really tempting for her who was in her 29 years and 12 months.

”I was joking, ” Shishio said with a smile since his aunt was too cute, right?

”… ” They weren ’t sure what to say for a moment.

Chihiro clenched her fist and she was ready to teach her nephew, but…

”Shishio, teach me to draw. ” Shiina looked at Shishio with a hopeful expression since she knew that Shishio ’s painting was better than hers and if she learned under him that her painting should be liked by more people, right?

Shiina suddenly remembered her turning point to go to Japan, when she met a child that she met at the exhibition. If she didn ’t feel curious about the manga on the boy ’s hand at that time, maybe she would stay in the UK now, and she might become a master of painting, but if she didn ’t come to Japan, then she might not be able to meet Shishio.

In her heart, there was a contradiction in Mashiro ’s heart, wondering what she should do at this moment?

Looking at Shishio ’s figure now, Shiina felt that she was looking at a giant, and her emotion that had always been flat and calm since her birth, was jumping in excitement, and various complex emotions began to appear in her eyes.

Then after a while, Shiina regained her calm, and she suddenly understood why Shishio would be confident to say that he was a color, and he would dye the entire world with his own color when he first met her.

’Grandpa, it seems that you ’re wrong, Mashiro isn ’t the special one. ’ Shiina thought at that moment.

”Well, I ’ll go back to my room since I ’m a bit tired, and when the competition starts, I ’ll remind you, Shishio, ” Chihiro said while standing up.

”Um, thank you, Chihiro-nee. ” Shishio nodded, then looked at Shiro-san and Ritsu. ”Do you want me to teach you two, Shiro-san, Kawai-senpai? ” He had a ”Painting Mastery ”, and it was also very easy for him to teach people to draw, even though they had never learned.

Ritsu, even though, had never shown her trouble on her face, felt slightly pressured when she saw how bright Shishio was, but when she saw his smile toward her, she couldn ’t help but remember when he helped her at that time. She felt that the distance between them was far, but at the same time, she wanted to get close to him, after all, she didn ’t want to be left behind, especially when she saw how close Shishio, Shiina, and Misaki were, which was why she felt very happy when he said that he was going to teach her, but she was too shy.

”Is that alright, Shishio? ” Shiro-san was interested.

”Well, it isn ’t much of a problem for me, and I also want to ask you a question about how to write a novel, ” Shishio said to Shiro-san.

”No problem. ” Shiro-san nodded.

”Is that alright, Oga-kun ” Ritsu was a bit embarrassed to accept Shishio ’s kindness before, but when Shiro-san also wanted to learn, she didn ’t hesitate to accept it too, but then she realized something and looked at Shiro-san in shock. ”Shiro-san, you ’re a novelist? ”

Misaki was also looking at Shiro-san since she had never known Shiro-san ’s job.

”Um, yeah, ” Shiro-san said embarrassingly.

”What kind of book have you written, Shiro-san? ” Misaki asked.

”That book, ” Shiro-san said while pointing at the book in Ritsu ’s hand.

”…. ”

Ritsu ’s face turned ugly at this moment since she didn ’t expect her favorite writer would be a pervert.

Shishio explained how to draw four people in front of them. He explained interesting tricks to both Shiro-san and Ritsu, giving them a game to play, and both Shiro-san and Ritsu had to admit that it was very fun, then explained some knowledge that Misaki didn ’t understand, and lastly some advanced knowledge to Shiina.

Shishio still had common sense, so he didn ’t show much of his ability and limited it so they wouldn ’t be overwhelmed.

”Shishio-kun, you ’re really amazing. I didn ’t expect your cooking to be so delicious and you ’re also very good at painting. It is as if you are really the god of the new world! ” Misaki picked the draft on the table while watching Shishio ’s next creation next to her. There was a lot of inspiration on her head, and she believed her next production would be amazing, but she had to tell Mitaka about the idea to help her with the script.

’Jin… ’ The expression of Misaki dimmed at the thought of Mitaka, and her heart was a little complicated, even though she knew why Mitaka avoided her, and even though she knew the problem between the two, she couldn ’t do anything about it, and if Mitaka could be like Shishio, even just a fraction of it, then both of them wouldn ’t be like this.

Misaki looked at the painting in a daze, wondering how she could make Mitaka change himself.

When Shishio, Shiro-san, and Ritsu were playing together, ignoring Misaki ’s words, Shishio then looked at Shiina who was still learning and somehow wondering about her feelings, after all, unlike in the novel, Shiina was a living being and there was a lot of plot that was pretty much unreasonable.

The first thing was Shishio was puzzled at how Shiina could give up her family, her school, her friends, her honor, and her favorite oil painting, or rather she almost gave up everything and came to Japan, was it really for a manga?

Shishio didn ’t believe it.

If Shiina was willing to give up everything, then she wouldn ’t be tangled when Rita Ainsworth came to Japan to find her, but at that time, Sorata left many traces on Shiina ’s heart that couldn ’t be erased, so Shiina at that time was no longer the previous Shiina.

Sorata was wielding a weapon which was known as ”Yasashi (Kindness) and made various attempts to let Shiina stay, so in the end, Shiina rejected Rita and chose to stay in Japan, but her reason to stay in Japan wasn ’t to stay with Sorata, it was because she wanted to learn about a manga, but then why did she want to learn about it? Was it so important that she could give up almost everything that she had done in her entire life?

Therefore, Shishio wanted to give Shiina a chance to reconsider. He remembered his conversation with Shiina when they first met, maybe, it was because she gave up something that was very important to her that caused a big hole in her heart so she was full of confusion about her future.

”Mashiro… ” Shishio called out Shiina softly.

Shiina looked at Shishio.

”Can you really give up the world that you have lived in for so many years for a manga? ” Shishio asked.

Shiina looked at Shishio silently, and her head was full of confusion when she thought about Shishio ’s question.
