Nose has a problem. Namely, that he’s sitting on his classmate Murou’s lap, doing homework while Murou removes his jewelry, and waiting for Murou to get down to business.
That business? Trying to jerk Nose off, of course.
It seems there are rumors floating around that Nose is impotent–can’t get it up, can’t get off, and Murou? Well he’s such a “nice guy” he’s willing to help Nose out with his problem.
Except Nose doesn’t see it as a problem–he wants to launch a satellite into space some day, and as such, he’s focused only on that; no interest in food, clothes, or girls.
Murou maintains, though, that impotence negatively impacts one’s grades.
Murou: “Impotence in young guys is almost always due to stress, right? There are limits you reach when all you do is keep your nose stuffed in books all the time and don’t get yourself off when you should!”
Nose has trouble believing this (can’t imagine why), and nervously protests that he’s never actually been diagnosed with impotence, so it shouldn’t affect him–but Murou reminds him all the same that getting off now and then is good for his health. When he suggests Nose read a porn magazine, the reaction is a vehement–
Nose: “I–I CAN’T READ SOMETHING LIKE THAT!”
That being the case, then, Murou decides he’ll help out Nose. Which is what leads them to their current predicament, with Nose sitting on Murou’s lap waiting patiently to be jerked off while he tries to continue his studies.
He finally gives the okay, and Muroh begins to slowly untuck Nose’s shirt, sliding his fingers under the hem of his pants until he finds what he’s looking for, starting a slow, gentle stroke.
It seems he’s not quite as proficient at getting someone off as he’d like to believe! Nose thanks him for trying anyway, not entirely put off by the experience despite Murou’s frustration. The next day, though…
Murou: “Yo. I’m back for round 2.”
Nose: “Excuse me?”
Murou isn’t one to be put off by a bad first try–nor is he the type to give in so soon. He instructs Nose to sit on his lap again, with the promise of his grades improving, but unfortunately, his efforts once again bear no fruit.
Murou continues to try his hand (quite literally) at getting Nose off, but with little to show for his efforts. One afternoon, though, Murou’s hands start to wander, slipping down the back of Nose’s pants–much to Nose’s startled shock.
Murou shushes him, wary of their being noticed–since all of their meetings take place in isolated study halls in the library.
Murou: “Pipe down, idiot! See here…? Doesn’t that feel good? That’s your prostate there… I figure if I can’t get you off from the front, I could try from behind…”
Nose, however, is having none of this–and promptly bites Murou’s hand, griping at him not to just go around shoving his fingers into people’s bodies. He has absolutely no interest in something that serious, and if Murou wants to do that kind of thing, he should find himself a girlfriend and do it with her.
He dashes out of the room, heart beating a mile a minute–because getting caught up in something that feels that good? Not a good idea.
Later, at the library, he runs into Murou again–and while initially wary that Murou somehow planned their meeting, he realizes that Murou is simply there for the same reasons Nose is: to study. They settle down at a table together, the awkward tension between them melting away as Nose badgers Murou for help with some assignments he’s struggling with.
Finding himself enjoying spending more platonic time with Murou, Nose relaxes and apologizes for punching Murou the previous day, reminding that he doesn’t want to do that kind of thing…
Nose: “…but I’d still like to spend more time with you like this!”
After some irritated hesitation, Murou comments that all Nose ever does is focus on his studies–that he never would have even noticed Murou if they weren’t jockeying for the same top-grade position.
Nose: “Of course I wouldn’t have.”
Murou: “God you piss me off.”
He continues to admit that he doesn’t understand it, but he somehow felt really irritated when Nose told him to just get a girlfriend.
Nose is overcome with emotion, hanging his head in apology: “I’m…so sorry! I just assumed you were popular, so I thought… Yeah, I guess if you can’t get a girlfriend, that kind of comment would really hurt, huh?”
Nose really isn’t helping endear himself to Murou. Irritation rising, Murou instructs Nose to turn and face him, leaning in, and–
Without an explanation for his actions, Murou takes his leave, instructing Nose to head home before the library closes. Nose hasn’t the first clue what just happened.
