She's much less comfortable with Riku, who's a bit of a ladies' man. Riku's very handsy and isn't afraid to grab a girl's hand or sling an arm around her shoulders, something Ten is emphatically not okay with. Rather than simply stiffen up or politely point out that he's making her uncomfortable, Ten is blunt with Riku, telling him that she doesn't like what he's doing and would he please knock it off. This throws Riku for a loop – he can't recall ever having had that vehement a reaction before, and while he's not sure he likes it, he definitely appreciates Ten's honesty in saying it.

It feels like I have seen this situation a number of times to the point I think it has become a trope.

Otherwise I would give this manga a try down the road. I wonder why the name of this story is "Shortcake Cake." Perhaps down the line I would get an idea.
