Extra 2: And Sunashiro-san finally comes to the truth…
I wonder if Aito is here. We’ve already finished filming for the school pamphlet, right?
It’s almost time to leave school.
After finishing the final preparations for tomorrow’s school festival, I was on my way to the student council room with a happy feeling in my heart.
The purpose was, of course, to ask Aito to go home with me.
I also wanted to show Himuro-san how close we are now that we call each other by name… I’m sure he’ll be surprised since he and Himuro haven’t had a chance to see each other since the trouble with Yamase, since they’ve been busy with their preparations and such. Nishi-shi.
Speaking of which, where should we go for the school festival tomorrow? I guess we can’t miss the ethnic café of Aki’s class …… or the PTA’s seafood cafeteria where Aito’s mom is. With Aito, of course. Yeah, yeah, it’s important to deepen friendship with future family members.
I get to the student council room and open the door with a bang.
“It’s so cold. Is Aito there?”
No answer came.
I looked around the room and found only one person in the student council room now, Himuro-san, who was dozing off at the student council president’s desk. It seemed that the other members had gone somewhere else.
But I didn’t expect Himuro-san to be dozing off ……, it’s surprising that Aito would get a red mark in the test. I’m not sure if it’s because the preparation for the school festival was that hard. The fact that the phone is lying beside her seems to indicate that she fell asleep while she was playing with it.
…… I mean, that blazer on Himuro-san’s body is a boys’ blazer, right? Is …… also, perhaps, Aito’s?
If so, I’m jealous. But… well, I’ll just tolerate him for today. You look tired. I’ll have that blazer and Aito’s body all to myself in the future anyway…nah, nah, nah, nah…
Well, I guess I’ll go back to the classroom and come back again. My luggage was still in the classroom.
Thinking this, he turns on his heel.
“─── Hmmm, hmm… ……”
Just as I took a step forward, I heard Himuro-san talking in his sleep,
I turn around reflexively. I’m sure he was calling for Aito just now. …….
Then, there was Himuro-san sleeping with a peaceful face…
“Hehehe, I love you!”
As if courting, she was rubbing her cheek against Aito’s blazer and loosening her mouth sloppily, a scene that could only be a dream.
Yes, that was a mishearing of ……, wasn’t it?
Himuro-san must have dreamed that he was playing with his dog or cat at home, and I misunderstood and received the pet’s name. Wow, I didn’t know Himuro-san had a side of an animal lover.
Yes, yes, I’m sure this is it!
I’ve been busy preparing for the bake sale for a while now, so I must be tired too. I’m sure …….
Otherwise, it wouldn’t be possible.
I heard that Himuro-san loves Aito.
It’s not like they’re in love or anything…it’s more like they’re genuinely in love.
It’s such an uninteresting development that would be fatal to me, the one whom I’m destined to be with.
In my dreams, of course. …….
e-book bonus: newly written short story
<Aquarium and W date
It was Sunday, September 23rd. There was a little trouble in our class, and with the school festival coming up, it’s a day of rest for a while.
I was invited to the aquarium by someone.
The person who invited me to the aquarium was… Kensei Shiba.
“Oh, it’s a Sunday, so it’s pretty crowded. Well, it’s not so bad for a date, is it? We can just look around as we like.”
Shiba, who had voiced his admiration in front of the entrance to the aquarium, asks me for my opinion.
“That’s right. But if we are going to see the dolphin show, we should at least be aware of the fact that we should move early just in case. If you’re going to see a dolphin show, you might as well get a good seat.
“Hmm, sure. Okay, I’ll make an inspection today to see where is the best place to watch the show. It’s a rehearsal for that.
Shiba smiles brightly and says, “That’s a good point.
Shiba and I are fellow student council members, and by chance we have formed an alliance to help each other fall in love.
It all started when Shiba asked me yesterday, while I was at the school preparing for the school festival as a member of the student council, “If you’re free tomorrow, will you go out with me for a rehearsal of my date with Aizawa?
Apparently, Shiba was planning to take advantage of the atmosphere of the school festival to ask Aizawa out on a date at the end of the festival.
When I heard this at first, I thought, “Isn’t it normal to ask someone of the opposite s*x to do such a thing? I said to him with a puzzled look on my face, “I thought so too, and I asked Himuro earlier, but…<<I’m sorry, but I’m busy tomorrow>>. I’m busy tomorrow. ……” he replied with a disappointed look on his face.
What the h**l are you doing? I was about to say in a harsh tone of voice, but I retracted my words when Shiba muttered regretfully, “I thought it would be two birds with one stone if we could also find out what Himuro likes as an ally and tell Tajima about it.
I know you have good intentions, but you should think a little more about it. On the other hand, if I told you that I was going out with Aizawa as a rehearsal for our date, you would never put a good face on it, right? No, I wouldn’t.
So, in such a way, I decided to go along with Shiba’s invitation since we are in an alliance.
We paid the admission fee and entered the aquarium.
We were having so much fun that we almost forgot our purpose, starting with the fantastic space with jellyfish that made us feel as if we were in a museum, then the large aquarium with its schools of colorful fish, and then the giant whale shark swimming overhead that tickled our manly hearts…
“Look, Tajima, there’s a giant coral reef eel!”
Shiba said in a more excited voice than ever as soon as we entered the coral reef area.
“Chin-Anago………what an impressive name. It looks so cute.”
I laugh as I look at the chin sea eels in the tank. I wonder how you guys came up with such a name. …… I look at the explanation and see that it is because they resemble the face of a Japanese dog named “Chin”.
On the sand spread out in the aquarium, the chin coral, with black spots all over its body like the number 1, is swaying. The tanks were full of them, and the number of tanks was also full, with a total of eleven tanks set up just for them, although they were of different species.
Why are there so many tanks just for the green sea eels? Are they that popular?”
“Tajima, perhaps you didn’t know about the Chinese garden eels. They’re the mainstay of a date at the aquarium.
Why? No, no, no, there’s more. Penguin and dolphin shows…
Along with penguins and dolphins… the most popular are the sea eels. See, they’re cute. You’ll see how popular they are in the store area later. Not only are there chin-eagle goods, but there is even food in the shape of a chin-eagle!
If you know so much about it, you don’t have to come all the way here to learn about it, do you?
But as it turns out, there were more people after we entered the coral reef area, so it seems to be a popular place. But why is this the mainstay of a date at the aquarium?
“Hey, this chin sea eel isn’t just a name drop, and it’s certainly interesting to watch it sway, but it’s a little too much to be the main attraction on an aquarium date with Aizawa.
“That’s the difference between men and women. You see Tajima, just like we’re attracted to sharks, girls have an unusual appetite for cute things. Besides, there’s this too.”
Shiba pointed at a poster on the wall.
The poster announced that November 11th was the day of the “sea eel,” and the event was
“After the school festival, Aizawa and I had a date at the aquarium, and we had a lot of fun talking about the sea eel, so I found this poster and asked him to go with me on our next date. What do you think, it’s a pretty good plan, isn’t it? If you want, I can make it a double date with Himuro.
Shiba says this with a proud look on his face.
I can somehow understand that November 11th is the day of the Chinese garden eel, since a Chinese garden eel is shaped like the number 1. So the number of tanks seems to have been eleven. Well, I’d like to see the event of feeding the chinpaca, but I’m sure the staffs are having a bad joke by putting the mask of the chinpaca on their heads, which is painted with “Yurachin” for short.
“I’m sorry, Shiba, but I don’t think it’s possible for me to get excited with Aizawa and the Chinese garden eel.
“That’s why girls like it. My friend’s girlfriend was like that, I’m sure of it. I was actually hoping to get some opinions from Himuro about that. ……”
I’m sure Himuro would have given a cold look at …… Shiba.
“I wonder if this will really work…”
I wondered if I could ever get over my skepticism,
“I’m not sure if it’s going to work. Look, look, it’s a sea anemone, a sea anemone. They’re called “sea anemones”. That’s funny.
came a lively female voice.
I look toward the voice, beside Shiba who is making a proud face as if I had said so myself.
And there, to my surprise, was a familiar face.
“Look, look, Miya, all of these things in these many tanks are ‘chin-angos,’ chin-angos for short. Chingo for short, lots of chingos.
“Oh my God, Aki, don’t say such strange things so loudly. I really don’t want you to think that I’m a jerk too. Look, there’s a meaningful look coming our way…….what?
The other side also notices our presence and looks at us.
Yes, it was Sunashiro and Aki who happened to be our acquaintances at the aquarium.
“What a coincidence, Sunashiro, and Aki-san too!
I called them by their first names out of habit of saying so in my mind voice.
“Ha-ha-ha, Ota-kun. Since we are the same age, just call me Aki.
“I see. Then I’ll call you Aki from now on.
“Yeah, yeah. I’m sure you’ll be fine.
“…… Hey, Otaku Island.”
“Hmm, what’s a sandcastle?”
“…………No, it’s fine, but… …… something disgusts me.”
“What? I don’t get it at all!
“But it’s a coincidence, isn’t it? Do Sunashiro and Otori usually visit the aquarium frequently?
“No, not at all. When I went to Nanna’s store, I saw a fortune teller named Ranra, who is a friend of Nanna’s, and Ranra told me that something good would happen if I went to the aquarium, so I decided to come.
When Aki said this, Shiba, who seemed to be the only one among the group who did not know Nanna, tilted his head and said, “Nanna was a famous fortune teller in town, wasn’t she? ……
“Well, I guess it’s fate that we’re going to work together now, Otaku-jima. Too bad you guys don’t have veto power. Nishi-shi.”
What are you going to do about it?
I don’t mind at all. We’re here to preview or even practice for our date, so if we can get the girls’ opinions, we’ll be happy.”
“Really. You two, you came here to do that? I don’t know who Shibachi’s partner is, but Otaku’s partner is Himuro-san, right?
“Well, I guess so.”
I’ve known him almost as long as I’ve known Shiba.
His voice sounded extremely bored.
The next moment, however, Sunashiro’s voice raised with an “ah” and he grinned as if he had just had a flash of inspiration,
“─ ─ I can’t help it. I owe Otajima a debt of gratitude for preparing the booth, so I guess I’ll have to spend the day with him as a rehearsal partner. So, Otashima, I’m sure Himuro-san would love to see the dolphin show…so let’s go, let’s go, let’s go. We can still get a good spot now, so let’s make a dash for it.”
“Hey, that’s just what Sunashiro himself would want to see. I’ll go with you. I was interested in the dolphin show too. If we’re going to see a dolphin show, we’d better get a prime spot.
“I understand your point of view on Otashi Island. …… is the best I’ve ever seen… Don’t say that, it’s nothing, I didn’t say anything. Otashima is really gross!”
Sunashiro flaps his hands in the air and gives me a hard look.
Yeah……… this is a complete mess, isn’t it?
“Don’t worry, I didn’t hear you… I mean, don’t diss me so naturally.”
“Ha-ha-ha. I’ll consider it positively, so I and Otajima will go to the dolphins. What about you, Aki?
“Well, I think I’ll wait until I’ve seen some more dingoes. You go with me, Shibachi.
“Oh, okay! Girls prefer dingoes to dolphins, don’t they?
“Yeah, yeah. They’re really funny.
I know he’s happy that Aki is reacting the way he expects her to, but I wonder if he should use this as a reference for his date with Aizawa …….
After that, we met up again at the dolphin show, and the four of us enjoyed the aquarium.
It ended up being more like a play date with good friends than a rehearsal for a date, but… well, I guess that’s okay.
Then Tuesday after the three-day weekend.
“Tajima-kun, Otori-san showed me your picture in class. It looks like you had a lot of fun on Sunday. Well, it doesn’t really matter to me.”
Himuro, who was obviously in a bad mood, said to me…
（Why didn’t you invite me to something interesting like that? Tajima-kun’s stupidity!)
…… No, you should have invited me first.
Not me, but Shiba.
Incidentally, when Shiba tried to get Aizawa interested in the aquarium by talking about the green sea eels, Aizawa’s response was: …… Unfortunately, Aizawa didn’t seem to get it.
