Act 3 - The School Festival


The peaceful time of summer break for students passed by in the blink of an eye, and the new semester arrived.
After finishing the opening ceremony in the lingering heat, the next day came.
The classes for the new semester have already begun, and during our lunch break session, some classmates wear weary expressions.
As usual, I sit across from Yukio at our desks, eating lunch and engaging in small talk.

"Rintaro, did you properly put away the mug cup we bought the other day?" (Yukio)
"Of course. I washed it and put it away neatly for when you came." (Rintaro)
"Well, that's good then. Yeah." (Yukio)

As he says that, Yukio has a satisfied expression on his face.

In the second half of summer break, as promised, I went to buy a mug cup with Yukio. I vividly remember Yukio excitedly picking out a cup with a dolphin character similar to the one Rei and I used.

"By the way, how's your bass practicing?" (Yukio)
"Bass practicing? Umm... about that." (Rintaro)
"Huh? Is it not in good progress?" (Yukio)
"No, it's not that. I practice every day without fail, and I'm getting better――――I think. but I haven't practiced with the other two even once, so I can't really say." (Rintaro)
"I see... I'm not familiar with instruments, but it seems like it's quite difficult to harmonize with other instruments." (Yukio)

I'm not a particularly cooperative person, and in terms of skills, I'm still a beginner who has been playing for less than a month.
To be honest, I've been anxious for about a week now, and there have been times when I didn't know what to do because my growth seemed to be slowing down.

"Right now, it's like this, but as the performance approaches, we're planning to rent a studio for practice, so I'm not too worried." (Rintaro)
"Heh, I see. I'm looking forward to seeing you play the bass, Rintaro. Do your best." (Yukio)
"Yeah, I'll do everything I can." (Rintaro)

I touch my fingertips, which have become hardened from pressing down on the strings all this time.
It makes me a little bit proud that I can be so engrossed in something other than household chores.

"Hmm...... Anyway, what's the afternoon class today?" (Rintaro)
"It's to decide what we're going to put on for the school festival. It's only a month left after all." (Yukio)

Our school has a lot of students, so the school festival itself is quite large.
Every class puts in all their efforts, and there are even new students who chose this school because they wanted to experience and participate in our school festival.

"What did we do last year?" (Rintaro)
"You forgot? We had a food stall. There was a disagreement about whether to have a takoyaki or yakisoba at the festival, so we ended up having both." (Yukio)
"Oh yeah, there was." (Rintaro)

I'm starting to remember.
We opened four different stalls in the classroom: yakisoba, takoyaki, cotton candy, and shaved ice.

"Last year was quite successful, but I wonder how it will be this year." (Yukio)
"Well, as long as we don't choose the wrong theme, there shouldn't be any failures." (Rintaro)
"Yeah, that's true. Our class has a lot of serious people after all." (Yukio)

As the start of a big event approaches, there is a slightly restless atmosphere in the classroom.
It's evidence that many people are looking forward to it.

Time passes, and it's after school.
As we sit at our desks waiting, our homeroom teacher, Harukawa Yuri-sensei, enters the classroom.
After we finish the greetings, Harukawa-sensei clears her throat and begins to speak.

"Well, this season has come again. Let's decide on the theme for our long-awaited school festival!" (Harukawa-sensei)

Cheers rise from the enthusiastic classmates.
I hope we don't end up with a troublesome theme, looking up at this high tension.

"Yes, yes, it seems like everyone is motivated. Before we get into a serious meeting, shall we decide on the school festival committee member first?" (Harukawa-sensei)
"Hey, hey, stop blatantly lowering the tension." (Harukawa-sensei)

Well, that position is the most bothersome after all. I can understand why everyone's tension drops.
To be honest, as long as I can avoid being a committee member, it's fine with me, no matter what the performance is.

"Sigh...... Well, for the time being, anyone who wants to be a committee member is fine." (Harukawa-sensei)

Harukawa-sensei calls out to us so.
What follows is a probing among classmates.
Gazes filled with the wish for someone to do it are flying around the classroom.

"......I knew it would come to this, makes Sensei a little sad. Well! I understand the feeling though!" (Harukawa-sensei)

Sensei sympathizes that this task is bothersome.

"But if we leave it like this, nothing will be decided. Should we try the usual recommendation method next? Is there anyone who can be entrusted with this?" (Harukawa-sensei)

And so it begins.
The recommendation for the school festival committee member is nothing more than the selection of a sacrificial lamb.
Once recommended here, it goes without saying that it's difficult to refuse.
And because everyone understands that, it's also difficult to betray their friends.

――――That being said.

And also, it's only natural that no one will speak up in this situation.

".......Sigh. Last year, you guys decided quite easily." (Harukawa-sensei)

That was because we didn't understand the harshness of being on the school festival committee.
By now, the freshmen must have decided easily.
And the serious one who unintentionally became the sacrifice will bear the brunt.

"Well, there's no helping it. Then...... how about you, Kakihara-kun? I think you're quite suited for it." (Harukawa-sensei)
"Eh, m-me...?" (Yuusuke)

Everyone's gaze turns towards Kakihara.
It seems that this year's sacrifice has been decided.

"I-if it's Kakihara, we can trust it on him with peace of mind!"
"Yeah! He's the perfect person for it!"
"I've always thought he was dependable!"

Everyone starts raising their voices all at once.
Kakihara has already been completely locked on.
Of course, even if someone were put in this situation, they would unhesitatingly refuse. At least, that's what I would do.

However, due to Kakihara's personality――――

"......I-I understand! I will live up to everyone's expectations!" (Yuusuke)

――――This is how it turned out.

As if it had been planned in advance, Kakihara is chosen to be the school festival committee member.
But, to put it this way, there is no doubt that he is the most qualified person for it.
He is recognized by everyone as an honor student, and he does not belong to any clubs or committees, so he doesn't have to juggle multiple responsibilities.
In terms of logic alone, there's no one more suited for the role.

"Alright! So Kakihara-kun is decided as the committee member! Class representative Nikaido-san, please support Kakihara-kun from now on." (Harukawa-sensei)
"Yes... understood." (Azusa)

When Nikaido is requested so, I can see Kakihara making a small victory pose in the corner of my vision.

(I see...... Kakihara, you're surprisingly a tactician.)

The school festival committee usually consists of one person from each class, but it is customary for class representatives to assist in some way. 
The reason it is described as 'customary' is because it is not officially mandated as part of the system.
At least in the class overseen by Harukawa-sensei, this is how the system works.
The class representative must prioritize assisting the school festival committee over the regular duties, which inevitably increases their time together.
However, this situation can be seen as the best preparation for the festival.

While it may not be commendable for personal interests to be involved in the committee's work, I don't mind at all.
He's taking care of our troubles for the sake of his own romantic pursuits.
Rather, I believe there should be some kind of reward for his efforts.

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."
"Fuurawan-chan ka? Ii no namae."
"S, sangkyu."

And when they finished, the boy pleaded for the second.
Then when they finished, this time in the girl who asked the third.
And when they finished, the boy once again pleaded for the fourth.
Then when they finished, the girl also once again asked for the fifth.
And so on.


On the other occasion,
On a day that is not a night.
That day the sun is shining brightly because it's a day and 12:00 o'clock.
The day is bright and the sun has not been set yet.
The breeze can be felt due to the air is flowing.
As he is breathing, a certain boy is approaching a girl.

"Yaa, kitten-chan, can I have your namae?"
"S, su, suteki~. Ah, hai. Fuurawan desu."
