Ema: (Today’s classes ended for today. I wonder if I should ask Yusuke-kun to walk home together?)
Yusuke: Oh, are you heading home?
Ema: Yes. And I was wondering if you’d like to walk home together?
Yusuke: Oh, sorry. I can’t come with you today…
Ema: Are you busy with something?
Yusuke: Not really…its just…
Yusuke: …Well, do you remember that test we took last week?
Ema: Ah, that math test right? It was pretty difficult.
Yusuke: Yeah that one! So, I um… I did pretty bad on it… And I can’t go home until I finish this extra assignment…
Ema: …I see.
Yusuke: I actually tried really hard on it too… But I really didn’t understand it at all! So, today’s been a pretty bad day.
Yusuke: H-Hey, don’t laugh!
Ema: No, its not that. It’s just, you had such a serious face just now. Normally you’d say something like, “I was slacking off!” without a second thought.
Yusuke: …Well, of course I’d be serious about this!
Yusuke: Now hurry back home already! I have to focus on this!
Ema: (He says I should go home but…)
1: I’ll go home now
2: I’ll help with Yusuke-kun’s studies (hearts)
1: I’ll go home now
Ema: All right, I’ll go so I won’t distract you. I should also hurry home so I can prepare dinner. Good luck!
Yusuke: Okay, see you then.
Ema: (I wonder if I should make hamburgers tonight? It’s Yusuke-kun’s favorite after all!)
2: I’ll help Yusuke-kun’s studies
Ema: …Would you like some help with your studies?
Yusuke: What?! I-It’s fine. I don’t need any!
Ema: It’s not like I’ll actually do the problems for you. But wouldn’t it be easier if you had some help if you got stuck?
Yusuke: I said its fine! Just go home already!!
Ema: …Fine then!
Ema: In that case, I’ll study on my own.
Ema: That way, I can focus on my studies, and you can focus on your studies. Is that fine with you?
Yusuke: Do what you want!
Ema: Hehe. If you need something don’t hesitate to ask, okay?
Ema: Yusuke-kun? You okay?
Yusuke: I give up…I wanna go home now…
Ema: But you can’t go home until you’ve finished.
Yusuke: I know but…
Ema: Are you stuck?
Ema: Ah, its a numeric sequence problem…
Yusuke: …No matter what I do I can’t figure it out.
Ema: Its a problem which asks for the maximum sum of an arithmetic progression. Do you remember the formula?
Yusuke: I remember it. So then what? How do I know what to do next?
Ema: If you check the textbook its in page 76.
Yusuke: Let’s see…An = …? Huh? “a1” and “d” are what…?
Ema: “a1” is the first term. And “d” is the common difference. Look, its written here.
Yusuke: So does that mean… I apply this to that formula?
Ema: That’s right!
Ema: Once you apply it, you just need to find “n”. The concept is still the same as inequality.
Yusuke: So the answer is…17, right?
Ema: That’s correct!
Ema: You did it all by yourself! Good job, Yusuke-kun!
Yusuke: No, its because you helped me…
Ema: But it was you who solved it!
Yusuke: I said thanks!!
Ema: No need to thank me. You’re welcome.
Yusuke: I appreciate it.
Ema: Hehe. Now, let’s hurry this up and go surprise the teacher!
Yusuke: Ugh… I still have kinda a lot left though…
Ema: How about this then? If you can finish it completely, I’ll cook any one of your favorite meals tonight!
Ema: So do your best, okay?
Yusuke: All right! I got this!!
Ema: Yeah, you can do it!
Sasakura: Huh? Asahina and Hinata-san? What are you doing here so late?
Yusuke: W-What are you talking about?! Can’t you tell by looking?! I’m studying! And what the heck were you up to?
Sasakura: Oh. I just finished my club activities.
Sasakura: Anyway, I’ve been kinda anxious about this for a while now but… are you two seriously not dating?
Yusuke: What?! Of course not!!
Sasakura: Oh? I was pretty sure just a minute ago I heard you talking about dinner.
Yusuke: It’s not what you think it was! It was… Ah! I was just telling her what I was having for dinner! Yeah, That’s it!
Ema: That’s pushing it a bit don’t you think?
Yusuke: Shut up! You don’t need to get into this!
Sasakura: So you two really aren’t dating?
Ema: We’re not!
Ema: (We’re family…and siblings…but…)
Ema: (Recently, it feels painful to say that… I wonder why?)
