Chapter 84 Slave’s Will

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 No one said a word

 That gave everyone plenty of time to understand

 ”To be with me, you mean…”

 If she became a member of the executive committee, she would have more time to be with Chihiro

 That’s why she accepted Maisaka’s request

 This logic is understandable

 ”But the positions of student council member and executive committee member are different, and you can’t talk to me during the meetings. Besides, I’ll be with you all the time when I get back”


 Maria doesn’t answer

 She just kept silent, her eyes on the table

 Instead, it was Aika who answered

 ”Still, it would give me more time to be with Chihiro-kun… I suppose”

 More time together

 Thinking about it, that was something that Aika herself was concerned about

 Even if the time Chihiro used to devote to after-school voluntary training was allocated to the student council, their time together would inevitably be reduced

 He thought of various ways to solve the problem, but could not do anything about it, and in the end, he solved the problem by showing the connection between them with “objects”

 It’s not surprising that Maria is thinking the same thing


 ”…just for that?”

 Why would she go that far?

 As Aika and the others said, then there’s no need to be stubborn

 They should have told everyone beforehand, or given a good reason to explain her participation in the committee

 There is no need for her to be stubborn and complicate the matter

 ”Yeah, I think so, don’t you?”

 Aika said with a hint of anger in her voice

 But then she shook her head lightly

 ”But… what I can’t forgive is not that, but what’s beyond”


 ”Yes. The reason she didn’t tell Chihiro-kun or me”

 Aika then turned her gaze to Maria

 ”Not because of logic. Just wanted to sneak off. You wanted to be with Chihiro-kun when I wasn’t around… right, Maria-chan?”

 When asked, Maria slowly looked up

 Then, something deep and passionate flickered in her jet-black eyes. However, it was Aika, not Chihiro, who was at the other end of the line

 ”That’s not it”


 ”No, it’s really not”


 And then

 Aika banged her hand on the table and the girl’s angry voice echoed in the living room. Riko hurriedly restrained Aika and made her sit on the chair again

 Aika still stared at Maria, still irritated

 But Riko looked at her friend wistfully and said

 ”Takatsuki-san, I also think that what Takatsuki-san said was a little bit wrong”


 Aika blinked, as if she didn’t understand

 This time, Hana said in a quiet voice

 ”It’s probably true, but I think Takatsuki-san is aware of it. Just that you’re focusing on different things”

 ”And”, she continued

 ”To put it simply, this whole thing is mostly Izumi-kun’s fault”


 As usual, her words were as blunt as ever

 Hana’s point itself was within the expectations. In the first place, if Chihiro hadn’t built such a special relationship with Aika and Maria, this trouble wouldn’t have happened

 Then, he asks

 ”Can you tell me what is that about?”


 Riko nods and glances at Maria

 ”It’s okay, right, Maria?”

 ”…Do what you want”

 Her voice was somewhat weak

 Still, agreement is agreement

 Riko began to speak as if she had obtained her consent

 ”I think… Maria just wanted to be with Chihiro at “school””

 Hana nodded at the words

 ”I suppose so”

 ”…But I believe we’re together most of the time at school as well”

 Chihiro and Maria are in the same class

 During class and breaks, they can check each other’s status just by looking next to each other. So, he replied that

 But Riko shook her head

 ”That doesn’t mean you’re together. You two are just strangers, classmates. You two don’t even talk, just being in the same place”

 There is a big difference between just being in the same space and being together

 It’s a matter of course

 He doesn’t realize it until he’s confronted with it again

 ”That’s because we promised not to interfere with each other at school”

 ”Yes, that’s true. But isn’t that a promise made by Izumi-kun?”

 Hana’s point stunned him

 …She’s right

 This rule of non-interference within the school was made by Chihiro, and Maria hadn’t really cared about it from the beginning

 She was just following Chihiro’s rules

 So, Maria was actually unhappy?

 If so, she should have told it earlier. Is it arrogance to think so?

 Well, it should be arrogance. While Chihiro was thinking about it, Aika opened her mouth

 She seemed to have come to a similar thought,

 ”…But, it’s necessary, isn’t it? Regardless of who made the decision”

 Riko nodded and asked further

 ”Yes, but… Then why do you think it’s necessary?”

 ”Because otherwise, Chihiro-kun would stand out too much…”

 Aika’s eyes widened in mid-sentence, and she held her tongue. She seemed to have realized something

 Hana glanced at Chihiro

 ”That’s what happened. If Izumi-kun’s surroundings become too crowded, it will make him stand out and restrict everyone’s actions… yes, that’s true, but the current situation is crowded enough, isn’t it?”


 That’s true

 Right now, Chihiro has her girlfriend Aika by her side, and Aika’s friend Riko is often there. Maisaka talks to him often, and he had special matches with Kamishiro twice. But――

 Only Maria is away. No, she is separated from the rest

 Of course, they can talk normally after returning to the apartment

 In fact, Chihiro often asks Maria to play with him in the evening… but that’s why

 She can’t stand to be the only one in the school who is left out of the loop


 Even though she’s lonely to be away from Chihiro

 Her attitude of putting her own feelings and thoughts ahead of her Master’s orders is just like..

 ”Maria-chan likes Izumi-kun, doesn’t she? Not as a Master, but as a boy”

 ――It’s not about logic, it’s about position

 Maria just jealous. She jealous of Riko, who could talk to Chihiro as usual on school. She also jealous of Aika, who is recognized as Chihiro’s girlfriend

 She wanted to take their place

 She wanted to outsmart them, so she took on the committee without telling anyone

 Not as a slave, but as a woman

 [It’s such a relief to have someone from the same class. From now on, I’m looking forward to working with you]

 To meet as mere classmates and make a pretense of getting along

 …Aika’s murmur caused Maria to shudder
