Chapter 130 The End of the Festival

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 After the match between Chihiro and Kamishiro, Ibusuki Kaname withdrew surprisingly easily

 She stepped down from the stage with a microphone in her hand and raised her voice

 ”Phew. I have no choice but to admit it. You should be honored”

 It sounded like a sigh of defeat

 Almost everyone who was present looked at her with a blank expression as she gave the microphone back to the committee members and walked away

 ――What is this? Is this all a setup?

 Some even commented so

 Kamishiro, who was injured, and Chihiro, who was supporting him, were not so happy

 ”Get out of the way!”

 ”Excuse me, please let us through!”

 Two voices came from the audience, and Shuka and Aika came running toward them

 Shuka, who was slightly in the lead, came running in first and took over the role of supporting Kamishiro from Chihiro, almost taking it away from him. Aika catches up to them and tells them to put Kamishiro down for treatment

 Kamishiro is still conscious, but he is too exhausted to move. So, he was laid down on the ground quietly

 ”Shouldn’t we take him to the infirmary?”

 To Shuka’s impatient look, Aika replied as she knelt down on the ground

 ”It will be hard for Kamishiro-kun to walk there, won’t it? I will call the nurse and have a stretcher ready, but first, I will give him first aid”


 Shuka, biting her lip, nodded and stepped away

 When Chihiro sees her, he approaches her with a quick step


 ”Shut up. I know it’s a serious game and there’s no hard feelings, and I know it’s not my place to say this, but I’m kind of on edge right now”


 ”What makes you think you’re going to win?”

 ”Even if you win, couldn’t you have won in a better way?”

 Shuka knows it’s unreasonable, but she still thinks it. Chihiro did not say anything, because he knew well that logic and emotion are different

 But he did not apologize

 He did not win the game by using an outlandish strategy

 So, he had nothing to apologize for

 ”Takatsuki-san, Izumi-kun’s treatment…”

 ”Afterwards. Is that okay, Chihiro-kun?”

 ”Yes. Just get Kamishiro-kun healed quickly”


 Aika smiled and nodded, then turned serious and began the treatment

 The stretcher arrived in less than ten minutes. Kamishiro was taken to the infirmary by a group of male volunteers

 After giving him first aid wisely, Aika tried to stand up and almost fell down. But Chihiro rushed over to support her

 ”Thank you, Chihiro-kun”

 ”Thanks to you, too. Thanks to Aika and the others”

 Although Shuka didn’t speak up and express concern, Aika understood and nodded her head

 Chihiro also politely declined her offer to heal him as well, and returned to the stage. Sayuki next to them gave him a piercing look, but fortunately she didn’t say anything

 [Well… there’s a lot going on, and we’re running out of time, but if anyone hasn’t voted yet, please do so. The deadline will be closed soon!]

 Voting is closed less than ten minutes after the announcement

 Thanks to the use of student ID cards for voting and the semi-electronic voting system, the counting process was quick and easy

 And a second-year student on the executive committee, who is sitting at a folding desk by the stage, stares at the PC display and grumbles

 [Oh. …this is an unexpected result]

 The audience shook with excitement

 [I’d like to make an announcement. The winner of this year’s Miss Contest is…]

* * *

 ”…how did this happen?”

 ”Umm, even if you ask me, I don’t know…”

 In the corridor a short distance away from the first grade classrooms

 Chihiro and Kamishiro were leaning their backs against the wall, side by side, without being seen except for the occasional busy student passing by

 ”Are you still acting like that?”

 ”That’s the point. It’s just that I’ve gotten into the habit of doing it… and it feels strange to be dressed like this and to use my usual tone of voice”

 ”…Well, that’s fine. Is that what you want?”

 ”I don’t know…”

 When Chihiro showed up at the infirmary after the Miss Contest, Kamishiro’s treatment had already been completed. He was about to call out to him while he was taking a break, but Noriko-sensei told him, “I’ll examine you as well”

 But when they returned to the 1-C classroom, both of them were kicked out of the room by Maisaka

 [Yoo, the school’s face duo. You’re exempted from cleaning up, so just go to date together]

 ”What date?”, They want to ask so but didn’t even have time


 For some unknown reason, Kamishiro and Chihiro both won the Miss Contest. Kamishiro was the top in the boys’ division, and Chihiro was the top in the girls’ division

 The girl who was a member of the organizing committee said that many people must have been impressed by that match, and it must be true. Even the students who did not know them well must have been strongly impressed by that match, and there must have been several students who somehow got into the game just by the way they were playing from that moment

 As for the results of the finals, Kamishiro was moved up to the first place in the boys’ division

 In the girls’ division, Chihiro was in first place, followed by Yotsuba, Lucille, Sayuki, and Maria. Maria’s position was probably due to the commotion on the stage, but she did not seem to be particularly concerned about the drop in her position

 Rather, she was concerned about Kaname and how distraught she seemed to be at that moment

 Later, he’ll have to ask her more questions when he gets back home

 ”But, I’m sorry, Izumi-kun”

 ”Eh? For what?”

 ”That I hit the girl so hard, even if it was just a formality. I’m really sorry”

 ”I don’t know what to say after you made fun of me just now”

 When Chihiro deliberately puffed out his cheeks, Kamishiro laughed and said “I’m sorry” again

 Then he raised his eyes, staring off into the distance

 ”That person was strong. Really strong”


 Chihiro knew immediately that Kamishiro was talking about Kaede

 ”That person is strong, really strong”

 ”But you were strong, too”


 Chihiro turns around in surprise

 Kamishiro continued to stare off into the distance without looking at Chihiro

 ”The way you fought was totally different. The impression I got from you was different, too. But I knew both of you and that person were brother and sister. You are strong. You can be proud of yourself”


 It was an unexpected word

 Ever since Chihiro was little, he has been compared to his sister. He had been told many times that “Your sister can do well, so why not you?”
