I bought a girl – Chapter 15

Chronon: One more chapter of sorting out their relationship, then it’s back to the cuteness. The next chapter is a little weird, because I couldn’t tell who was speaking about whom.

The next day, there were no particularly strange rumours floating about. Those 2 seem to be keeping quiet.
Rather than teaching Amano’s class today, we rarely saw each other face to face.
After safely finishing the day, I felt relieved.
Moving on to Saturday.
Just as I promised Grandfather, I went to meet him with Ruri.

「We’re here grandpa」
「Ok」

Grandpa came out of the house, he didn’t look any different than he did a week ago.

「So this child is Ruri」
「Look. This is my grandfather. Why not introduce yourself?」
「Hasegawa Ruri. Thank you」
「My regards」

Ruri had practised her self introduction the night before her transfer, so she said it smoothly. However, she was still troubled when asked questions.

「I’ve heard you’re having trouble」
「Well, uh」
「For the time being, let’s go to the living room. I’ll make some tea」
「Yes. Excuse me」
「Excuse me」

When I took off my shoes and went inside, Ruri followed.
Whilst waiting in the living room, Grandpa came in with tea.

「What are you doing for lunch?」
「Lunch? I haven’t thought about it」
「When you get to my age, your only pleasure is eating. Does Ruri have any likes or dislikes?」

Grandpa faced Ruri and asked.
I don’t really think she has any.
However, everyone has things they like and hate.

「That’s good, I’m making stew. You two should have some」(TLN: Takes her silence as an answer)
「Really? Thank you very much」

The stew grandpa makes is good.
Grandma made it better, but grandpa’s version is also good. I learnt how to make it from my mother.
「Ok, let’s cut to the chase」

Grandpa exuded a serious atmosphere almost instantly.

「What shall we do about Ruri?」
「Yes」
「Well, what kind of relation would you want with Ruri?」
「Me? I don’t mind as long as she grows up happy」
「Is that such an easy thing?」
「Well…yes」

Grandpa spoke up whilst I was seated.

「Why not adopt her?」
「Adopt Ruri?」
「If you adopt her, It would be more believable than saying she’s a relatives child」
「Umm…..would the last name change in that case?」
「You would have to change it」
「If her last name changes, it might be difficult, since she’s already introduced herself at school and all the paperwork is done」
「It was your fault for being diligent and putting her in elementary school」
「Because I noticed she wasn’t going, I made her enter one」

Since I saw she was『At the age where she must go to school!』I acted straight away.
But it can’t be helped. I can only regret it.

「Well, it’s inevitable. You’ll have to keep saying she’s a relative’s child」
「….Yup」
「Haa….I guess I’ll have to give a hand to my cute grandson」
「How?」

Grandpa coughed lightly

「Why not say she’s your illegitimate child?」
I cast a cold look to grandpa.
The atmosphere grows tense.

「No, that would be a problem」
「I tried giving a helping hand」
「That’s enough. I was a fool to consult with grandfather」
「I can’t help you」
「That’s troublesome」
「I’m at that age. Ho ho ho」

Grandpa laughed.

「Well, it’s your life. But Ruri also depends on you. So work hard」
「…I will」

After speaking, Grandpa puts the cup to his mouth and takes a drink.
Do I have no choice but to insist that she’s a relative’s child after all?
After finishing my tea, I stood up.

「Then I will return. Thank you very much, Grandfather」
「Masachika」

When I tried to go to the front door, Grandpa stopped me.

「Make sure to visit Hiromi some time soon」(TLN: Author mentions that Hiromi is his mother’s name)
「….I see」

After receiving some of the stew at the front door, I left the house with Ruri.

  2. Thanks for the chapters! To be fair to Takeda, he’s in a really weird situation, so it’s understandable that he’s not sure what to do.

    It’s entirely his own fault, though. 😉

  3. Well, it IS his own fault. I mean, what the hell were you thinking, not changing her last name. I mean she will clearly stay with you from now on so why couldn’t you even think of such a simple thing. I was literally screaming at the screen saying, When are you going to change her last name? for the last 6-7 chapters…
    And those students of his are REAAALY creepy man. like what the hell is up with them, just entering a single mans house without even asking him like it wasn’t enough that you followed him all the way there to learn where his house is ? I would just go to police man, he already has Ruri to worry about and now these little bitches show up ? no please x_x😀

      • Well I know, and I love Yanderes too. but this one is just creepy, I mean I would understand if she confessed her love to him THEN stalked him or something but at this point what she is doing doesn’t even makes sense😐

        and MC is such a pushover, he needs to grow up a bit if he wants to raise the kid correctly.

      • She did confess to him, but he passed it off as a joke xD

        Chapter 12:

        「Does Masachika have a girlfriend?」
        「No」
        「Why not go out with me?」
        「No thanks」

        So, it’s not that unusual🙂

  4. adoption should have been the first thing he thought of…. i just wasn’t sure why he didn’t do that and thought it was because there’s some weird japanese laws regarding that or something.

  5. I got a solution to this problem. Just tell everyone she’s a relative kid, for few years and then adopt her and change her name and tell everyone that her parent break up and doesn’t want her.

  6. I think he adopt Ruri for the beging i mean how the hell you brougth a girls so easy with no any thing to make poeple don’t suspect you.

  7. I’m confused, why Adopting is out of question just because elementary school paperwork have been done? Is it because some Japan law? Or is it just troublesome?
    If it’s the latter, i think it worth the trouble, at least better than caught by police or get into nasty rumor, he’s a teacher after all.

  8. Ok people! Japanese adoption story time, settle down now!

    Apparently approval of Family Court shall be necessary, if the adopted person, except of adopting parent’s or his/her spouse’s own, is a minor.

    Well, I don’t understand that fully. But from what I gather, since Ruri is a minor, he has to explain in family court why he wants to adopt her and how he met her. So in order to open the way for adoption later on, he changes their relationship to that of *.

    * Find out in the next chapter!
