Helllooo. This chapter will be in Teruki’s POV. Just short and quick. Think of it as an intermission.
EDIT: OKAY idk what is going on with NU. I’ve had this chapter posted 2 hours ago and it’s still not listed…even tried my best to update EARLY so that it would count as released on 5/19, since NU is based on UTC time zone. Not happy <.<
High School – Eighth Part
“I don’t want to leave Yuu alone, so can you stop asking to meet privately?”
As I enter the Student Council room, I try to push down my dislike of Houou-senpai.
When Yuu had fallen down the stairs the other day, I felt so upset and frustrated that I couldn’t be by his side at that time. All the while, senpai eyes me from the President’s chair.
Hiroto: “…I didn’t call for this meeting.”
Teruki: “…Hah? Then who did?”
Genbu: “Ye~s♪ it’s me!”
I can’t believe my eyes.
Why is this person here…?
Genbu: “This meeting’s about rabbit-chan~. I thought we should share information…Well, sit down.”
So I plop down on the sofa. Houou-senpai is reclining in his seat, looking as relaxed as if he were in his own room. He’s also glaring at Genbu, clearly holding back from spouting some insults. I recall that this upperclassman had helped Yuu from falling down the stairs. So I thank him.
Teruki: “…Thank you for helping Yuu the other day.”
Genbu: ” You’re welcome~….I just wanted to help…you come off as having ownership over Rabbit…that’s no fun.”
The playful attitude from before is completely replaced by a terrifying sharpness. Eyes as razor-edged and discerning as knives.
Teruki: “Yuu doesn’t belong to anyone.”
Genbu: “Oh? Are you…replying to me?”
He watches me and breaks into a laugh, smile added in for good measure. Expression softening.
Genbu: “…Rabbit is interesting, but his surroundings are funny as well…”
Hiroto: “Ha. Hey, Genbu. Just make friends already…!”
Suddenly, the door to the council room bursts open.
Suzaku: “…Houou-senpai! Are you there?”
Hiroto: “…Huh? Suzaku-kun you’re too early…just wait outside.”
As I divert my gaze, I can clearly see Suzaku standing there, gasping for air.
