High School Hack and Slash - CH 37.2
「What an outrageous self-centered bastard he is.」
「As expected, I should have been the one to go all out first.」
「… I was a little nervous. You were playing around too much, Touma-san.」
It wasn’t that he was cutting corners, but from the point of view of those who were betted on the winner, they found their spirit not spirited by the communication of the flesh language as he stepped in bit by bit.
Though, the reason why she used herself as the betting stake in secret was because she unconditionally believed in Touma.
*Thud* He got to catch the weight received from the front.
Ichiko, hanging her head as if pressing her face against him and squeezing his blazer tightly, cried while stifling her voice.
Receiving the silent urging from Shizuka, *pomf-pomf* the Bearded Glasses Gentleman gently patted her back.
◇ ◇ ◇
「Everyone’s standing has been neatly cleared up safely. To be honest, I think I’m somewhat creeped out.」
Next to Rinko-senpai, who is wearing glasses, Mikan-senpai is scratching her cheek.
In terms of position, they seem to be the representatives of the『Adept Workers』.
They are the President and Vice President, so it’s only natural.
「That sure was quick. Or rather, it hasn’t even been a week since the matter was brought up, though. Like all of them, just how many just causes did you perpetrate in a single day? Truly a sex beast.」
「Anti-bearded glasses thread has even popped up on the underground board.」
A restless Mai leaning on a pipe chair playing with her hair, and Seiichi holding his eyebrows as if he is enduring a headache, let out a sigh.
It seems that an unofficial BBS has been set up somewhere in the academy’s intranet server.
It seems that in case the academy finds out about it, it will be shut down, but I have heard that they are in the state of playing cops and robbers, as they have even taken the trouble to set up a private server.
These days, if I let my guard down, even a notebook PC will go puff and shut down, so my hands are out of them.
Seiichi seems to be uselessly well-informed about it, but I wonder if he’s uploading videos as a YouTuber.
「The punishing of the Senpai sirs who refuse to listen has finished, so I believe the turn for the mysterious gentleman to come into play will decrease.」
Shizuka, who has gone and completely learned the mannerisms like that of a personal secretary, remains standing diagonally behind me.
There are extra chairs available, but for some reason she shows no sign of sitting down.
The rest of our party members are not participating in this meeting.
It seems that Saki and the twin sisters have entrusted it to Shizuka.
I have nothing to do, so somehow or other here I’m participating.
「This year’s boys are quite energetic, huh. Or so I’ve been watching over them, but moderation is necessary, you know?」
The last person, a Senpai from the girls’ dormitory sitting across the desk from me, glares at me.
It’s probably the first time I’ve seen her, and I don’t know her name either, so it’s a mystery as to why she’s here sitting with us.
「Ahem… She’s the person serving as the leader of the Asagi Sorority, Otoha. Touma-kun.」
I don’t get a damn.
This place is the meeting room of Asagi-sou, so it’s not at all strange for the dorm Senpai to be here.
For the time being, the question of what the heck is this『Sorority』 thing is answered by Shizuka, who is telling me by ear.
In short, it seems to be a self-governed management organization of each student dormitory.
The names are varying, where in the case of girls’ dormitories, it’s『Sisterhood (Sorority)』, and in the case of boys’ dormitories, it’s『Brotherhood (Fraternity)』.
Basically, it’s said that all the students in the dormitory are obliged to participate, but this is my first time hearing of such a thing.
「… No, it was explained during the newcomers welcome party, wasn’t it? Rather, you were asleep, though.」
I see, that means it’s only natural that I don’t remember it.
Or rather, speaking of Kurou-sou, I’ve already used it as no more than a storehouse for my luggage, though.
「And I’m telling you that that’s a problem.」
「Otoha-chan, about that matter, we’re also, umm, that…」
「… Haa, I guess it can’t be helped. I shall give Mikan-chan some face.」
As expected of Mikan-senpai.
Her body may be tee n’ ee, but her face is wide.
I’m assailed by such a warm feeling, but then the idle talk ends up ceasing.
Ah, I guess this is the so-called moment when angels pass by (conversational impasse).
「No, that’s not it, you see….」
In addition to the stammering Seiichi, I feel that the gaze of everyone in the room seems to be pointed at me.
I bet it’s just my self-conscious imagination.
Or rather, if I were to put it bluntly, I don’t know the reason why everyone is gathered here.
Could it be, I wonder if it’s a situation like that of: the judgment event of the villainess troupe?
It’s not like I don’t feel like I don’t completely have no recollection of things.
An unpleasant sweat trickles down my back.
In addition to the members present here, the girls with whom I’ve ended up having connections thus far show up one after the other, showering me with jeers like「the worst」, 「awful」, 「tiny,」 「quicker than xxx-kun~」,「dick」 and so on.
I am confident that my heart would break for sure.
If I were to be told「Dick!」 by Mikan-senpai head-on, I think I’d hand hang myself as is.
Kuh, I feel like Seiichi and Mai are laughing kekeke at me with devilish faces.
My back is already drenched with cold sweat.
Rather than toad oil, it’s on the level where I think I can extract some Touma oil.
「… Touma-san. Could you please leave this to me?」
I already have no options but to throw this whole thing to Shizuka-san.
If before anything else I were to be cursed「Dick!」 by Shizuka here, I’d leap to my death through the window.
「Now then, it may be presumptuous of me, but I, the head partner, shall proceed on the matter on behalf of Touma-san.」
「… Wow. Shizuka, you sure are going at it~.」
Shizuka, ignoring Mai who is teasing her, continues to proceed as the moderator.
First of all, let’s confirm the current situation.
Asagi sorority members Saki, Natsumi and Miharu have now become my official partners.
This is the reason why I was overlooked even when I stayed over at Asagi-sou, a girls’ dormitory.
Otoha-san, who had apparently inquired Saki and the others beforehand, also gave her consent reluctantly.
It seems that in case there were any threats or domestic violence, there is a possibility that I’d be removed by force.
It’s a story that makes my asshole tighten.
And then, Anzu-senpai from『Adept Workers』 has also been registered as my partner.
I see, that’s news for me.
No, as far as Rinko-senpai is concerned, it’s true that the right has ended up being transferred to me after I delivered punishment to her scummy previous partner.
The academy’s partner system is a heavier system than I had initially thought.
For girls, it’s not something they should promptly and casually yield themselves to, and even for boys, I think it’s a contract we should bear an adequate amount of responsibility for.
It may be presumptuous of me – who have concluded my registrations for Shizuka, Saki, Natsumi, and Miharu without any thought behind it – to say it, but having a large number of partners like a harem or collection is irresponsible and truly the ultimate of scumminess.
「With Anzu-senpai as the beginning, here are the partner badges for everyone but Mikan-senpai from『Adept Workers』.」
As if presenting the proof, pin badges are laid down, clinking, in front of Otoha-senpai.
It seems I’m the only one who has questions about what those things are.
Or rather, I wonder why Shizuka-san is carrying such things.
When I sneak a peek, I see a brand new badge with the same initials as Rinko-senpai’s on Mikan-senpai’s lapel too.
「This, true enough, I think wearing all of them will make the necktie heavy and neck sore. Or rather, are you an idiot?」
「… Umm, Touma-kun, are you alright? Your face is blue.」
「Don’t worry about it.」
In contrast to Mai, who straightforwardly speaks ill of me, Mikan-senpai really is an angel.
