Chapter 33 The Rumor of ‘The Strongest First-Year Student’

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 This should have a tremendous impact, partly because of the effect of keeping the information secret until now

 *sigh*, Maisaka exhaled

 The bag of croquette bread is squeezed tightly and bursts open

 ”To be honest, it would be tough. Well, we have Kamishiro and Fukami-san in our class. I think we can do our best, depending on how things go”

 ”…I’m sorry, but I can’t be of much help. There are many students who are more capable than me when it comes to physical abilities”

 Maria’s abilities are self-healing and retaliation, both of which are more suited to direct combat and less suited to physical competitions

 Maisaka must have been aware of this

 So, he nodded lightly and said

 ”Therefore, I’ll ask Izumi and Takatsuki-san to fill that role”

 ”Eh, we?”

 Chihiro blinked at Aika, who looked at him too

 After all, the two of them aren’t very good at competitions, either

 ”Takatsuki-san can heal everyone. If you use it on Kamishiro or someone who joins many events, it will be a great help. And Izumi is the rider. So, I’d like you to win, if possible. I’d also like to see Nishizaki win the ball game. If she makes a dummy basket or hides her position with an illusion, she’ll have a huge advantage, right?”

 ”…I see”

 Maisaka seems to be thinking of more things than Chihiro thought

 Or perhaps it would be rude to say “unexpected”

 Well, his abilities and personality don’t seem to match up, but they do in a subtle way. Maisaka Shuu is such a person

 ”Of course, Kamishiro is quite eager. I’m looking forward to it”

 Chihiro then thinks while watching Maisaka’s relaxed conclusion

 He wonders what will happen at the sports festival

 Perhaps it’s because he’s been given a strange incentive, but his heart swirls with anticipation and anxiety. In any case, all he can do is to do his part to the best of his ability

 Before he knew it, his hand had stopped eating

 Chihiro looked down at his lunch box and resumed eating, a little hurriedly

 ”Sports festival, let’s do our best”

 ”Yeah. But don’t push yourself too hard, Takatsuki-san”

 And after lunch, Chihiro exchanged a few words with Aika as they walked down the corridor towards the locker room

 The conversation took a turn and he ended up accompanying her to the changing room. Maria is also with them, but Maisaka stayed in the classroom, saying he had to prepare

 Although the men’s and women’s locker rooms are not next to each other, they are in the same direction

 Well, there are several changing rooms in the school, all located near the training area. The problem is that they are a little far from the classrooms

 Therefore, they have time to talk like this

 ”Ahaha. Don’t worry. I’m just doing a scavenger hunt”

 ”Oh, no. No, not that. I’m talking about your ability”

 Aika’s healing ability is a useful power that can heal fatigue, but it has the disadvantage that it wears out quickly. Although it is inevitable for Aika to use it, both for her character and for the strategy of the sports festival, she is afraid that she might get sick from overuse

 ”After all, I’m worried about Takatsuki-san because I gave you trouble the other day”

 It’s clear from that incident that she is a girl who is devoted to everyone. That’s why Chihiro is worried about the situation where she might overuse her abilities

 But Aika blinks without stopping

 She smiled softly and shook her head

 ”No, I’m not bothered at all. It’s just something I wanted to do… and I’m actually grateful to Izumi-kun”

 After all, that treatment is one of the reasons why Aika’s rank improved

 ”Besides, I can’t leave someone who’s in pain alone”


 ”But, thank you. Izumi-kun is kind. It made me a little happy”

 Aika said, quickening her pace. And before he knew it, they’re getting close to the changing rooms

 ”See you later”

 She smiled and walked on, and Chihiro felt very dazzled

 After seeing Aika off, Maria came to stand in line where she had been before

 ”She’s a good girl. Just like Nishizaki-san said, she’s too good”


 Chihiro didn’t answer Maria, but in his heart he agreed

 Aika is kind, caring. That’s why she’s dangerous

 He wants to monopolize that smile, to be special to her. Maybe Kamishiro feels the same way as Chihiro

 Is there a difference between pure love and mere possessiveness?

 ”I’m not going to give up”

 ”…Of course”

 With that, Chihiro quickly shook his head, and Maria giggled happily

 ”Then, good luck. …Master.”

 The second half is a faint whisper

 Even though there are many other students around, she said the unusual name quite naturally

 Maria then followed Aika to the girls’ locker room
