Virtual Alpha and I - Chapter 32.2
“—Hey, why do have that thing on your neck… and also have that scent coming from you?”
“It’s the alpha’s intimidation pheromones coming from you. Anyway… usually you don’t need that if you already had a pair.”
Even though I haven’t told him that I had a pair, Amagi already knew that I had one. So alpha could really tell without even looking at the bite mark.
As he said that, Amagi flapped his hand at me. It was as if he was trying to get rid of something that smelled bad.
However, it looked like he couldn’t get rid of the scent, for Amagi suddenly stood up and strode widely to the balcony.
He opened the sliding door and poked his head outside.
“It’s too much…”
“Err, what do you mean by intimidation pheromones…?”
I wonder what he meant. I’ve never heard of it.
He said that it was alpha’s pheromones, but why would that scent come from an omega like me?
I was also curious about the word “intimidation” that was used for it.
“Ah, so you got that scent without getting any explanation about it. Just what kind of obsession is that… Damn, what a pain in the ass.”
Amagi scratched his head.
Maybe this look on his face meant he was feeling troubled rather than annoyed.
Perhaps because he had taken some distance from me, the grimness of his expression have calmed down a bit, and the scary look from earlier was disappearing.
“Intimidation pheromone is-…”
“Hold on, Ten-chan. Why are you opening the door when we have the air conditioner on?”
Just as Amagi was about to explain, Narumi came back. He was holding a large silver tray in his hands, the kind used in coffee shops.
On the tray were three colorful drinks in red, yellow, and green color. There were two layers of beautifully colored soda, each topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It definitely looked like a drink from a trendy café.
Narumi put the tray at the living room table and started to scold Amagi.
But Amagi seemed to have no intention of moving from there no matter what Narumi told him. He sat down on the floor and poked his head out toward the balcony.
“…I can’t stand the intimidation pheromones he got on him. Wait, you can’t smell it too. So it’s just me? Damn it.”
Amagi muttered his frustration and scratched his head again.
Hearing that, Narumi only said “Hmm” and turned his gaze to me again.
“Ten, is that the same reason you’ve been so grumpy toward Sou?”
“…Huh? That’s right. Didn’t I tell you?”
“You didn’t. I see… so it’s been going on for a while.”
Narumi seemed to be thinking to himself.
He looked at me and Amagi in turn and nodded his head as if understanding something.
“Well, I have a lot of questions, but just pick one of the drinks for now. These are just from the café downstairs, but they’re my recommendation. I’ve chosen all the flavors that I want to drink. Which one do you like, Sou?”
Narumi was going at his own pace as usual.
He said that and offered me the drinks on the tray.
“What flavor are these?”
“Let’s see, the red one is bloody orange, the yellow one is pineapple, and the green one is green apple flavor. Is there any that you like?”
“Then I’ll take the bloody orange flavor.”
“Okay, here you go. The one at the bottom is the syrup so make sure to stir it well before you drink.”
He placed the red cream soda in front of me as he explained that. After that, he carried the tray toward Amagi who was sitting on the floor.
“Ten, which one do you want?”
“Okay. Then I’ll have the pineapple one.”
Narumi took his yellow cream soda from the tray and handed the soda with the whole tray to Amagi. It was so Amagi could put it on the floor just like that.
Amagi started eating the ice cream on top of it still with a grumpy expression. The gap is amazing to see him drinking such a cute drink with that scary face.
Anyway, is Amagi alright staying at that position?
“…Narumi, should I move somewhere else?”
“No worries. You’re the guest here anyway. Also, I was already surprised when I heard you got a pair, but you actually got that intimidation pheromones on you even from back then. Does that mean your partner has been eyeing you from the start?”
Narumi said that and sat down on the place where Amagi had been sitting a moment ago. He began to stir the glass.
It seemed like Narumi also knew about intimidation pheromones. I have yet to be told what it was.
“Umm… what’s intimidation pheromones?”
“Huh? You don’t know that? …You see, intimidation pheromones are the so-called markings that alphas put on the omegas they have an eye on. It was so the other alpha didn’t take that omega away. It’s usually done before they become a pair. But if he still put it on you after you become a pair… that means he doesn’t want other alphas to get close to you.”
“Huh… Ah, so that’s what it means.”
There was no mistake it was Yuugo who did this.
That means, Yuugo thinks that way… right?
I didn’t know when or how he put that scent on me, but when I imagine Yuugo’s feeling when he did that, it made my face heat up.
“Seeing how you’re not complaining, that alpha must have a good relationship with you.”
How could I not be happy that Yuugo thought he didn’t want to let other alphas near me?
I think I would have done the same thing if there was a way to keep other omegas away from Yuugo.
“I see. So you meet a good partner. Congrats, Sou.”
Narumi smiled at me, looking relieved. Could it be that he was worried about me?
I felt a warmth deep in my chest when I heard Narumi mumbling “I’m glad” with a small voice.
