Chapter 83 Maria’s Revolt

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 ”She told me she was on the executive committee of the school festival.”

 Aika’s voice was faintly shaky

 …Apparently, Maria was just telling her what happened

 ”Yeah, I was surprised to see her there too. That’s why I was going to talk to her later but I didn’t think Maria would answer honestly”

 ”Yes, it’s not something to hide”

 Well, sure, it would be exposed anyway when Chihiro got home

 ”But, that’s strange. You don’t have to keep it from us, do you?”

 Aika questioned Maria about her intentions

 But Maria only dodged the question and refused to answer. Moreover, her only reply was――

 [It’s my decision, there’s no need to talk about it]

 Her reply doesn’t make sense, Aika thought

 She would answer honestly where she had been, but not the purpose of her participation in the committee. Shouldn’t she have been more clear about whether she wanted to hide it or not?

 Aika, unconvinced, questioned Maria further

 ”Well, Takatsuki-san didn’t like the fact that Maria was meeting with Chihiro in a place she didn’t know anything about”

 Aika nodded at Riko’s comment

 ”Of course. Because I’m Chihiro-kun’s girlfriend”

 Even if they are friends, it’s because they are friends that she can’t allow her to contact Chihiro secretly

 …It’s only natural

 Aika is a lover

 Maria, Riko and Hana are slaves. They wished to be by Chihiro’s side and recognized each other. Then they should have the utmost respect for each other

 In fact, Aika acknowledges the existence of the slaves and tries to get along with them

 That is an extraordinary effort, even though Maria and the others were the ones who were with Chihiro first

 And yet, Maria has trampled on Aika’s efforts and trust

 It is no exaggeration to say that she betrayed her

 So, it’s understandable to suspect artifice and malice

 [It was nothing special. Just a few words as classmates]

 [Then why didn’t you tell me? If nothing happened, why didn’t you just tell me?]

 If Maria had apologized here, the conversation would’ve ended there

 If she had just bowed her head and said, “I was rash, I’ll be careful next time”, there would have been no rift between them

 But she did not apologize


 She just ignored it and tried to pass it off

 It was this attitude that caused Aika to become heated

 [I can’t understand you if you don’t say anything. Answer me properly, Maria-chan]

 After a few seconds of silence, Maria said

 [I was just trying to surprise Izumi-kun and the others. Isn’t it easier for Izumi-kun if I’m on the executive committee than someone else?]

 [Yeah. But it’s a lie, isn’t it?]

 Aika immediately cut her off

 If that’s the reason, it doesn’t explain why she didn’t apologize for everything earlier

 Or perhaps the usual Maria would have said, “Surprised, right?”, or something like that

 Not only did she keep quiet, she lied about it

 So, the two of them argued

 Aika was the one who raised her voice most of the time, but when things got a bit heated, both of them decided to move to the bedroom

 [Calm down, both of you. Can’t we at least wait until Chihiro comes home?]

 [I can’t let Chihiro-kun see us like this]

 [Right… I agree with you on that]

 Riko’s mediation didn’t have much effect, and Riko called Chihiro to see what she should do. Fortunately, Chihiro was nearby..

 ”…That’s how it is”

 Riko ended the conversation with a sigh

 ”Thanks. …Riko did a good job of staying calm”

 ”Uh, well. I think I missed the timing because Takatsuki-san pushed too hard, so I had to calm down”

 She smiles wryly

 But it is true that Riko saved the day. If she too had gotten heated, the situation would have been completely out of control

 Thanks to her, she could sort out what happened

 The conflict is triggered by Maria’s participation in the executive committee

 And the cause seems to be Maria’s stubborn attitude


 When Chihiro call her name, the dark-haired girl turns to look at him

 Her expression looks calm, but she is suppressing something. She seemed to be trying her best to make an innocent face

 …Fortunately, this is not a case of switching sides, as he feared

 ”Why don’t you tell me what’s going on? Maria’s acting like this, I think there’s a reason”

 ――Just like with Hana before

 She doesn’t want to talk about it in front of him, so he glances at her and makes his intention known

 But Hana gave him a disapproving look

 At that time, too, Maria was working for Chihiro and the others despite her seemingly stubborn attitude

 This time, she must have been trying to avoid a bigger problem

 ”I told you. I don’t want you to sacrifice yourself without consulting me”

 Even if the best solution is for Chihiro and the others to not know anything

 Not wanting to go through that again, Chihiro stared at Maria


 ”Oh, um. Izumi-kun, I’m sorry to interrupt your excitement, but…”

 Hana approached her slowly

 The expression on her face is indescribably vague

 ”Well… it’s just possibly. But I don’t think it’s like that this time”

 And the one who replied is Riko

 She is also looking at Chihiro with a wry, complicated expression on her face

 ”To be honest, I think this is Maria’s fault”

 ”It can’t be Maria-chan’s fault. I think it’s Takatsuki-san who came in after her”

 Both girls are in distress

 But not in a life-threatening way, and their opinions are at odds with each other

 Chihiro tilted his head

 ”…What do you mean?”

 ”In other words, Maria wanted to be with Chihiro, so she agreed to be a member of the school festival committee. That’s all I’m saying”

 Hana and Aika are not surprised by Riko’s words

 They both knew that

 But for Chihiro, it was an unexpected and outlandish reason

 So, for a while, all he could do is ramble
