"If there's something you'd like to ask, please ask away".
It wasn't like I would answer just about anything, but if there's anything I could afford to answer, I intend on doing so.
"Ahh, I want to ask to~o".
Tips, opportunities to make money：I am doing a business online now. Even though she herself said that we should have separate conversations, once again Karuizawa barged in. From Hirata, who was watching this situation unfold, an opinion came forth.
"This looks like a good opportunity, why don't we ask each other questions we've been thinking about asking?".
I felt this was not such a bad proposal. I could also use this occasion to ask Hirata the questions I've been wanting to ask him yet could not.
"Agreed~ Then I'll go first".
Upon expressing her agreement, Karuizawa immediately turned her gaze towards me.
Tips, opportunities to make money：Is the online lucky fish to make money? "Did Ayanokouji-kun ever go out with someone before?".
I was asked that question just earlier by Hirata. No, to be precise, rather than ask me that he saw through me. I never thought that in one day, I would receive a similar question twice. Basically, I've don't have a girlfriend = pathetic. As a boy, such a prevailing view is pretty sad.

"Alright. Your age equals the number of years without a girlfriend, I got it".
I was intending on answering ambiguously, but as though that clinched it, Karuizawa said that.
"You know, Ayanokouji-kun. That's an excuse unpopular men use, I think it'll serve you well to remember that? 'Right now', including that makes it suspicious".
"Really? Even if I had a girlfriend in the past, if I don't have one right now, I think I'd include the 'right now' though".
