Act 2 - Summer Break


When Nikaido said she wanted to go on the water slide, I had one plan in mind to support Kakihara's love.
The five of us head for the large waterslide ride.

[This waterslide is for pairs! Two people in line, please!]

The woman in charge calls out to us as we head to the end of the line.
This waterslide requires pairs of people to hold onto floats and slide down the long slide. This very system is what exactly I was after.

"They said it was for pairs. What do we do?" (Doumoto)
"Ah, we'll have one person left." (Honoka)

Doumoto and Nogi are wondering what to do.
As for Kakihara, he just glances at Nikaido and doesn't say anything.
I don't think he's a chicken, but if anyone could ask her to ride with him in a situation like this, he'd probably have bristles growing out of his heart.
So leave it to me, Kakihara. I'll solve the odd-numbered problem first.

"Ah, sorry...... but I'm afraid of heights, Therefore, I'd like to avoid doing this if at all possible." (Rintaro)
"Eh!? is that so?" (Azusa)

Nikaido raises her voice in surprise.
The fact that I'm afraid of heights itself is a lie, but saying this will increase the probability that she will be convinced.

"Hey, hey, let's go somewhere else. It's lonely here without a ride, isn't it?" (Ryuuji)
"No, no, no, you four should go together. I don't want the four of you to miss the ride because of me. There are other water slides, so when you're done here, you can go with me on that one." (Rintaro)
"Ah, I see. ......I'll take your word for it then! I've always wanted to ride this one!" (Ryuuji)

Okay, nice one, Doumoto. I believe that you, being the bold and adventurous person that you are, would not want to miss out on the biggest water slide here.
And if one person is willing, there's sure to be another who will jump on the bandwagon.

"Well, the line has started to form, and I've always wanted to ride it too. Shidou, I'm sorry, but can you wait for us?" (Honoka)
"No probs. I'll be watching you guys jump in." (Rintaro)
"You said it, didn't you? Then I'm going to jump in like all cool!" (Honoka)

With this, Nogi falls.
Once the obstacles are cleared, the stage is completely set.
I look at Kakihara and give him a wink, as if to say, "Now, go!".
Kakihara notices this and her face lits up and he nods happily.

"Ah...... Azusa! Wanna ride with me?" (Yuusuke)
"Eh?" (Azusa)

Kakihara, with his intention in mind, calls out to Nikaido.
This is what I call " The Lovey-dovey Waterslide Operation". I know, I'm so f*cking lame at naming.

"Ah...... M-mm, okay." (Azusa)
"――!!! Then let's get in line!" (Yuusuke)

I didn't miss it, Kakihara. I didn't miss your gut pose.

"Eeh―! Then I'm with Ryuuji? I would have preferred to be with Azurin, though!" (Honoka)
"Phew...... it's all right, isn't it. You should put up with me at least once." (Ryuuji)
"Eh!? Ah...... yeah. Well, it's okay." (Honoka)

Nogi is embarrassed by Doumoto's unusually mature voice.
Then, Domoto alternately looks at me and Kakihara, and then gives a thumbs up so that only I can see it.

Aah, I see. So you can at least see through your best friend's love life, huh?

"Then...... Shido-kun, I'm off." (Azusa)
"Yeah, have a good time." (Rintaro)

I wave off Nikaido, who has been glancing at me.
Turning my back to them as they line up two by two, I move to the edge of the pool where the end of the slider is.
Here I can just see them as they plunge down the slider.

(...... what do, I do?)

I flopped down by the pool and stared at the bobbing water in a daze.
Being alone, the triviality of what I am doing once again comes to the fore.
To begin with, the help I was providing would only benefit Kakihara, of course. As for Nikaido, who had no interest in him from the beginning, perhaps it is an extremely annoying behavior.

Even I can understand the pain of having no way to escape.
What I am doing now is the same as disrespecting her feelings, isn't it?

"I don't get it......." (Rintaro)

At first, I wanted to help Nikaido to divert her feelings. But now I am a little closer to Kakihara himself, and there is a slight desire to honestly support him.

If one's love life is called youth, then I wonder if this situation is also like that.
Youth may be crueler than I think.

I chuckle to myself, thinking that I really ain't cut out for this.


Before I know it, their turn has come, and Nogi and Doumoto jump into the pool in front of me.
Splashing in the water, the two emerge out at the surface, cackling and laughing happily.

"Ah! Shidou! How was our jump in?" (Honoka)
"Aah, it was pretty spectacular." (Rintaro)
"I know, right~! We did it, Ryuuji!" (Honoka)

They clap their fists together.
They return the floats to the staff and go to the side of the pool to wait for the other two who are coming later.

"Hey, Shidou?" (Honoka)
"Hmm?" (Rintaro)
"Shidou, are you aware of Yuusuke's feelings for Azusa?" (Honoka)

Nogi, who is sandwiched between me and Doumoto, asks this question as she looks toward the waterslide.
A moment's thought. Then, I nod honestly, since Doumoto doesn't try to stop her when I look at him with a sideways glance.

"Yeah, He's asked me to help him. So you two notice about it already." (Rintaro)
"The four of us have been together for a long time, so it's not hard for me to notice....... Well, I don't want to be thought of as being overly self-conscious, so I may just be pretending not to notice." (Honoka)

That――――may indeed be the case.

 "I've been watching them closely for a long time and...... I can tell you that they are a perfect match for each other. But that Yuusuke is too shy and Azusa doesn't even notice it, so I've been struggling with it for a long time." (Ryuuji)
"......Well, I understand that feeling a little." (
"Right. That's why when you skillfully guided them to the waterslide earlier, I thought, "You did a great job!"." (Ryuuji)

Nogi nods at Doumoto's words.

"We have this image of those two, you know, like, dynamic." (Honoka)
"W-well, that may be true." (Rintaro)
"That's why I couldn't understand Yuusuke's feelings. I thought why didn't he just bump into her? Maybe it's because it's someone else's business, but you know. If we keep living the way we are now, the relationship will never change, and if we want to move forward, don't you think we have to be prepared to go through the pain?" (Honoka)

I think that's a valid argument. The only reason I can say that is because it's definitely someone else's business.
And I can understand Kakihara's feelings.
We have completely different roots and different ways of thinking, but I'm sure anyone can understand the fear of ruining an existing relationship.

And after listening to their words, I came to an understanding. I had come to it.

Kakihara is aware of it himself.
Somewhere deep down, he knows that Nikaido's feelings are not for him.
That's why he couldn't step in. He wasn't ready to put himself in.
Because he doesn't want to get hurt, because he is afraid.

He wants encouragement from those around him――――from us, to dare to get hurt.

What will happen to the relationship between the four of them once he does so and gets hurt?
Maybe they will remain friends and stay the same.
Or it may not, and it may be irretrievably broken.

I'm beginning to feel more than a little scared at the prospect of being involved in such a crossroads in their friendship.

At a certain time, there are creatures that walk by two feet. These creatures can be divided into two by gender. These creatures are surprisingly able to pick something using things called hands.
And on a certain day, two of these creatures meet.

"Halloo~ I am Bujangga, ndesu! Nice to meet you!"
"Y, yes. Nice to meet you too, I am Fuurawan."
