Gekkou

Murder Recipe

There was no day I’d miss hearing that name.

“Tsukimori is so lovely. . . ,” muttered my classmate Kamogawa mixed with a sigh, upon which the other male students around him nodded deeply.

“Listen guys: don’t let that slender body deceive you!

Got me? She’s also got. . . boobs!”

Their insolent gazes were focused on the girl in debate, Tsukimori, who was surrounded by a group of girls, chattering. If I were to describe Youko Tsukimori in one word: she was eye-catching.

However, the guys seemed to be highly interested in the famous girl and started discussing rumors about Tsukimori as if they were gossiping about some star.
