Chapter 130 The End of the Festival

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 Maybe it is because he is too exhausted, he can’t reject his physiological reaction

 And tears overflowed with the passionate feelings that welled up in him, and it spilled out from his eyes

 ”Why are you crying?”

 Kamishiro finally turned around and shouted in confusion


 ”Oh, gosh, just stop crying. You’re a man”

 While repeating these words, Maisaka arrived at the right moment and cheerfully called out to them without reading the air

 ”Hey, you two. Come back here, it’s almost time for HR… Eh, Kamishiro… are you hitting on Chisato-chan!? Do you mind if I tell Yuse about it?”

 ”Wait a minute! Why would you do that?”

 Kamishiro rushes toward Maisaka in protest

 Seeing his desperate expression, Chihiro started to feel funny and chuckled

 ”Maisaka. Do you mind if I don’t go to HR? I want to change out of these clothes as soon as possible”

 For the time being, he decided that it was time for him to stop wearing women’s clothes

 On that day, the students left the school without cleaning up

 Almost all of the classes and groups were planning to clean up their messes tomorrow, on Sunday. It is said that in some years, classes that required extensive preparations spend almost the whole day for cleanup, making the day a “holiday” in name only

 Well, even if that is the case, it is human nature to want to go home and sleep today

 ”It’s strange to go back with this group”

 It was Yotsuba who muttered as she looked up at the evening sky

 She walked diagonally behind Chihiro, looking around at the people with her and smiling

 ”I wonder if this kind of thing will happen more often in the future”

 ”Haha…well, I think today is special”

 Chihiro replied with a wry smile

 ”Well, that is true. I usually don’t go home with Izumi-kun”

 Hana, walking at the far end, replied in her usual tone

 ――Now, in addition to the three who opened their mouths, Maria and Suzu are present. Suzu is only visible to Chihiro and the others due to [Cognitive Obstruction]. Everyone is present except for Aika, who is away for the medical course, and Riko, who has left earlier, all of Chihiro’s associates are present

 For the note, Yotsuba has a permission to stay overnight at the apartment. It is not a very frequent thing to do, but the situation of the school festival helped her to be allowed to do so

 As Hana says, the reason why the members who usually go back separately are together today is that Yotsuba is going to Maria’s apartment, where she has competed with Maria in the final round of the Miss-Con

 Chihiro is an acquaintance of Yotsuba and also a participant of the Miss Contest. Hana is walking with Maria as her friend

 And of course, the real purpose of the trip is to wrap up all the stories that they couldn’t talk about during the school festival


 Maria’s expression has been somewhat listless since Kaname’s arrival

 She is also diagonally behind Chihiro, in the opposite position to Yotsuba, but she has been unconsciously going ahead and slowing down her pace repeatedly since a while ago

 She is in a hurry

 She wants to talk quickly. She wants to get rid of her worries

 Chihiro, however, is not in a hurry. He is tired, and most of all――

 ”I’ve been waiting for you, Izumi Chihiro-kun, and Maria-chan and Hana-chan”

 Somewhere he had a hunch that this would happen

 At the entrance of the apartment, leaning against the wall by the glass door, a punk Lolita girl――Ibusuki Kaname――was waiting for Chihiro and the others

 She said with a beaming, deliberate smile

 ”Come on, let’s talk in the room, shall we? I’m sure there are things you don’t want to talk about here”

* * *

 ”…And this is how it happened…”

 ”I wanted to talk with Kurohane-senpai as well”

 Upon returning home with the whole group plus extra, Riko and Aika roll their eyes when they see them

 Riko looked at them with a mixture of astonishment and alarm, and Yotsuba nodded to Aika who looked puzzled

 ”…Umm. I think we should hear what Ibusuki Kaname-san has to say first”

 ”That would be very helpful. I’m off today, but I’m quite busy”

 Kaname, with a smile on her face, sits down in a chair without being encouraged to do so. Of course – although Chihiro himself is not that particular about it – it is, after all, the top seat in the arrangement

 In other words, she sits far from the entrance. Assuming positively that she does not intend to run away, Chihiro sits down opposite to Kaname

 Yotsuba willingly stood behind Chihiro, near the entrance, although there were not enough chairs for her. Suzu, maintaining [Cognitive Obstruction], stood behind Kaname. The rest of the girls take their extra seats

 Riko brews iced tea for the group and brings it to Kaname, who promptly puts her hand on her cup, saying, “Don’t worry about it”

 ”So, what do you want to talk about?”

 ”Before that, may I introduce myself?”

 Chihiro’s question was interrupted by Kaname, who smiled at him

 She made sure no one said anything before continuing

 ”My name is Ibusuki Kaname. I’m a first-year student at Shibatsuru Academy in Sapporo, ranked C. And I’m an associate member of [Absolute]”


 This is the second time Chihiro had heard the name. From what Kaname said, it seems to be the name of an organization, but what exactly is it?

 Kaname noticed that Chihiro’s reaction was not good

 She tilted her head and looked at Maria

 ”What is it? Are you sure Maria-chan and the others haven’t told Izumi kun anything?”


 Maria is silent at the sound of the agitated voice

 Instead, Hana answered Kaname

 ”I didn’t think it was worth mentioning. Unless, of course, they come to us like this”

 ”…is that…”

 Chihiro could guess where the conversation was heading

 The things that Maria and the others had been keeping from him, or rather, had thought they could not tell him. There is one thing that fits the description of the events he has encountered so far

 ”Is it related to “that person” Maria and the others were talking about?”

 ”…uhh, yes”

 Maria’s face was distorted as she answered

 ”[Absolute] is a group of “Lost Item” abilities whose main members are mostly women. And its leader is Fukami Kaito. He is my own brother”

 ”Kaito-sama… Master is a wonderful man. All members of the [Absolute] are loyal to Master”
