Chapter 36 Mishuku Hana

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 Seeing her like that makes him want to move his body

 So, after the afternoon class, Chihiro put on his uniform without taking off his training clothes. After returning to the classroom for the return HR, he grabbed his bag and went to the private training room. This is a routine that he used to repeat every day until a while ago, so he is used to it

 He walked along the corridor and went to the other building through the service entrance in his slippers

 Shibahou Gakuen is divided into different buildings for different purposes, such as classroom lectures, specialized subjects, training, and so on. So, it is possible to go from the main school building to the other building from either inside or outside, but today he decided to go from the inside because he was in a hurry

 Then, as he operated the terminal at the entrance, he obtained a room and entered the building

 [I’m going to train, so I’ll be home a little late]

 After sending a text message to Maria and Riko, he took off his uniform. He then folded the uniform and put it away, and started training in his clothes

 The basic training started with preparatory exercises

 The countless repetitions are repeated carefully, taking care not to make it messy. After all, there is no other way to get stronger than to train the basics

 …unless he can acquire some new ability

 Since the day he decided to attack Riko, no new ability has emerged in him. But he had a theory about this

 ――The power one acquires is affected by the type, intensity and length of one’s desires

 The essence of a person, the root of a person, does not change easily. Just as accumulation shapes personality, ability is also affected by time. Maria’s ability is strong because of the desire she has held onto for a long time, and Kamishiro’s straightforward strength is the result of his honest character and ambition

 If that’s the case, Chihiro is not good at harming people, and the first time he had ever vented his true malice on someone was when he attacked Riko. It is only natural that it is difficult for him to develop an aggressive power

 Instead, he gained [Sleep Enhancement ] and [Emotional Amplification]. Well, it makes sense that these were born from his complex about his body’s lack of muscle mass and his “weakest mind-reading ability”

 If this hypothesis is correct, what is necessary to gain the ability is to keep thinking

 Think strongly and continuously. If he does so, he will acquire it someday. That’s the simple conclusion he came to

 Although there is no guarantee that it is correct, Chihiro believes in this hypothesis for the time being

 In any case, it is good to have a reason to work hard. If he has a goal, his training will be more efficient

 And so, two hours have passed in a blink of an eye

 It’s time to end this

 Feeling moderately fatigued and in the sense of being able to recover after a night’s sleep, Chihiro decided to practice “that technique” several times for the last time. He swung his fist with such strength and speed that the muscles in his arm screamed

 Though he had promised Aika, she wouldn’t mind if he just practiced as long as he could


 After practicing about ten times each, he finished

 He whipped his throbbing arms, changed into his uniform, and left the training grounds

 He then walked through the service entrance to the main school building. And since he had gone from the inside, he had to change into outside shoes to go home

 So he went to the shoe box and took out his shoes. But――


 A white, flat object comes out of the shoe box and falls to the ground with the shoe lightly

 When Chihiro picked it up, he found it was a Western-style envelope. The name on the front is [Chihiro Izumi-sama]. There’s no sender’s name on the back

 (I wonder what it is)

 It’s definitely a letter from someone. But who sent it to Chihiro and for what purpose?

 After a few seconds of hesitation, Chihiro decided to check the contents

 He put his shoes back in the shoe box, moved to a secluded place in the school building, and broke the seal. Remembering an old urban legend, he took out the letter, being careful not to use a razor, and found that it contained only a single sheet of letterhead

 The text is very simple and short

 [Chihiro Izumi-sama

 I’ll be waiting for you on the roof of the school building after school today]

 As expected, there is no sender’s name

 But it’s a message. It’s for today and refers to Chihiro by name

 He doesn’t know when this message was sent, but if it’s after school, it’s already been two hours. Depending on the subject, I may have done something wrong to the person

 The question is, what is it?

 A love letter, of course

 The writing on the envelope and the letterhead is round and looks like a woman’s handwriting

 In this day and age, it takes a lot of effort to send a letter using a letterhead

 ”…Maybe it’s a prank”

 Riko didn’t use such elaborate methods and Maria didn’t either

 But someone else has summoned Chihiro for some reason and is trying to make fun of him or hurt him. It seemed to be the most likely scenario


 Still, he should at least respond

 If it’s a prank, the person won’t wait for two hours, so it’s better to at least check if someone is there

 After that, Chihiro put the letter into an envelope, and the envelope into his bag, and moved to the rooftop

 Well, the last time he was here was when he had lunch with Maria

 While thinking so, he turned the knob of the door and found it unlocked. As he pushed it open, the outside air touched his skin. He walked out, closed the door, and looked back again

 No one is there… no

 There is one, a student

 A girl in her school uniform, sitting on the concrete floor, looking down at a book. She wears dark-rimmed glasses and her hair is braided lightly into two buns at the back of her head. Her skin is white, as if she is a literature student

 Perhaps she did not like the sunlight, or perhaps she was in the shadows near the entrance, so she did not notice him immediately

 But he must have heard the sound of the door opening and closing, because she looked up immediately


 When she recognized Chihiro’s face, her eyes widened faintly and she stood up

 …Which means she’s the one who sent the letter after all

 Turning away from the gaze, Chihiro slowly walked up to the girl

 ”Um, the letter”

 ”Yes. I’m glad you’re here”

 The girl closes her book and puts it away in her bag beside her. Neither the girl is particularly upset about being late, nor does she seem to be trying to trap Chihiro

 The unexpected situation confused him a little

 ”I’m sorry, I’m late”

 From the color of the school badge on her blouse, she seems to be in the same grade as him, but he apologizes to her in a respectful tone because they have never met before and he feels bad

 She shook her head and replied

 ”Please don’t worry about it. If anything, I’m sorry for calling you out of the blue”

 And in a polite manner, she asked, “Can I have a minute of your time?”, Chihiro answered with a nod, exhaled a sigh of relief and smiled

 It was a small, subdued smile that could have been overlooked if the two of them are not alone

 ”Actually, I have a favor to ask Izumi-kun”

 ”A favor?”


 The girl nodded and looked at the entrance to the rooftop behind her

 She took a step, her slippers moving away from Chihiro. As she took a second step, she looked at Chihiro as if to say follow her

 Chihiro obediently followed her

 The two of them then walked around to the back of the entrance. The narrow space, only a little more than a meter from the wall to the fence, created an atmosphere of secrecy


 The girl exhaled, stopped beside the fence and looked back. When Chihiro stands near the wall, they are only a meter away from each other

 ”Nice to meet you. My name is Mishuku Hana from Class A. I’m here today as a representative of Class A”

 The girl, Hana, first introduced herself as such
