Ema: (Ever since these rumors had spread, I’ve noticed Yusuke-kun had been avoiding me…)
Mahoko: Hina. Our next class is in the audio visual room. You coming?
Ema: Y-Yeah, just getting my things ready.
Mahoko: …Hm? Looks like Asahina fell asleep during class. Jeez, guess I don’t have a choice!
Mahoko: Hey, Asahina! How long are you going to stay alseep? If you don’t hurry up the teacher is gonna yell at you.
Yusuke: Hm….? What do you want…? You just ruined a good dream…
Mahoko: Don’t give me that. You know we gotta move classrooms right? If you don’t get up you’re gonna get in trouble!
Yusuke: …Ah! You’re right! Crap!! It’ll be bad if I miss that class! Thank you, Imai!
Mahoko: You better thank me somehow for this later.
Yusuke: Yeah, fine. Sometime later.
Mahoko: *Sigh*…Well, I gotta prepare for the next class, so you want to go together?
Yusuke: Sure! Give me a minute.
Ema: Sorry for the wait, Maho-chan! I’m ready to go now.
Mahoko: Oh, Asahina is also coming along. You mind waiting a bit?
Ema: Yusuke-kun is coming too?
Yusuke: Oh, Hinata….
Mahoko: Come on Asahina, let’s get going.
Yusuke: …Sorry. I have to do something first. You can go on ahead.
Mahoko: Huh? What could you possibly need to do in between classes?
Yusuke: I-It doesn’t matter! Just go on ahead without me!
Mahoko: Jeez, what’s with your attitude?! Fine, let’s go Hina.
Ema: (Could it be since I’m coming along…?)
Yusuke: On second thought, I’m going to go ahead first!
Mahoko: What?! What about that business you wanted to take care of?! Jeez… I don’t understand him at all!
Ema: (*Sigh* He had the same attitude during our break time. So he really is avoiding me…)
Ema: (I wonder if he hates me now…)
Ema: (And lately it felt we were getting along great with each other too…)
Sasakura: Hm? Hinata-san? You’re still here?
Sasakura: …? Hey…are you crying?
Ema: No, I’m not.
Sasakura: Doesn’t look that way to me. Your eyes are red…
Ema: I-I really am fine! What about your club activities?
Sasakura: I had some free practice on account of the coach today. So…
Sasakura: Do you think you could tell me what’s wrong? Does it have to do with Asahina…?
Sasakura: Or is it because Asahina’s been avoiding you lately?
Ema: H-How did you know…?
Sasakura: Asahina is pretty easy to read, haha.
Ema: But, I understand how he feels…
Ema: I think he must be angry at me.
Ema: Because I was careless, I let everyone misunderstand…
Sasakura: You understand how he feels, huh? Hinata-san, I think you’ve got it backwards.
Sasakura: Isn’t he avoiding you because he cares about you? If these rumors keep going on, you’d keep being in the middle of it all.
Ema: Sasakura-kun, that’s…
Sasakura: Well, it’s a pretty childish way to go about it that’s for sure.
Sasakura: Haha, funny how we’re talking about this sort of thing. You’re pretty cruel Hinata-san.
Ema: (I’m talking about another boy to Sasakura-kun. That’s pretty insensitive of me.)
Ema: …I’m really sorry.
Sasakura: Well, I may have been rejected but I do still think you deserve to be happy.
Ema: (He still worries for me even now. Sasakura-kun really is kind.)
Sasakura: Huh? Did you smile just now?
Ema: Oh! S-Sorry…!
Sasakura: Haha, you’re the same as always Hinata-san.
Sasakura: Still, I am partially to blame for this aren’t I? I mean I was suspicious of it all too.
Sasakura: I probably should of considered that. I’m sorry.
Ema: It’s not your fault. There’s no need for you to apologize.
Sasakura: …Yeah, well even so, Asahina is an idiot!
Sasakura: Well if it were me I’d make sure to never let you cry like this.
Sasakura: How about it? You change your mind about me?
Ema: (Though he said it to lighten the mood, his eyes are sincere.)
1: Sasakura-kun is kind
2: I’m sorry (hearts)
1: Sasakura-kun is kind
Ema: (Sasakura-kun really is kind… If he says it that way I…)%K%P
Ema: (But, I still…)
2: I’m sorry
Sasakura: Ah! Don’t say it!
Sasakura: I don’t think I could recover from being rejected twice.
Yusuke: …What’s wrong?
Ema: I-It’s nothing…
Yusuke: You weren’t crying were you…?
Yusuke: W-Why were you crying?!
Yusuke: Sasakura, what’d you do to her?!
Sasakura: We were only talking.
Yusuke: If you were only talking then why was she crying?!
Ema: I-I wasn’t, Yusuke-kun! Cut it out!
Yusuke: W-What do you mean you weren’t?! Your eyes are red!
Sasakura: Huh? You’re really thick headed you know.
Yusuke: What’d you say?!
Sasakura: I confessed to Hinata-san.
Sasakura: Since when do I need permission to confess? Plus, it’s not like you two are dating anyway.
Sasakura: If you wanna hit me then go ahead and do it! Cause I’ve been itching to get a good hit in as well.
Ema: W-Wait a minute!! Both of you stop this!!
Yusuke: Shut up! Stay out of this!
Yusuke: Ouch! Can’t you do it more gently?
Yusuke: …What is it? A-Are you mad?
Ema: Of course I am. You caused a huge commotion and it really got out of hand!
Ema: If Miwa was called by the school, you could’ve got suspended…
Yusuke: I-I said I was sorry…
Yusuke: ….But I wonder why he didn’t take a second blow after he hit me.
Ema: …Unlike you he’s more of an adult.
Yusuke: Huh? What’s that supposed to mean?
Ema: You should apologize to Sasakura-kun tomorrow.
Yusuke: …All right, I get it.
Ema: Please don’t fight anymore after this. If something were to happen to you I…
Yusuke: I know. So don’t cry anymore.
Ema: …Really? You promise?
Yusuke: Yes, I promise. I don’t want to make you upset anymore.
Yusuke: Also…I’m sorry. I’ve been avoiding you lately…
Ema: I’ve noticed…
Ema: I don’t mind the rumors but…
Ema: I don’t like to be ignored by you…
Yusuke: I-I won’t do that anymore.
Yusuke: So don’t cry…
Ema: (Yusuke shyly pats my head.)
Ema: (What should I do…? My heart is pounding so fast…)
Ema: It’s gotten pretty late.
Yusuke: Yeah. We should head back soon. I’m really hungry now.
Ema: But your mouth is probably in a lot of pain now isn’t it? It might be harder to eat like that.
Yusuke: I-I can still eat! I’ll just bear with it.
Yusuke: I want to eat the food you make.
Mahoko: Oh? Hina and Asahina! What are you doing here?
Mahoko: Asahina, You sure stirred up quite the commotion.
Yusuke: H-How do you know all about it?
Mahoko: After all that shouting I knew you got into a fight. Even the class next door could hear it.
Mahoko: Naturally, more rumors spread when you were seen going to the infirmary together.
Mahoko: Sasakura got pretty riled up over it, I had to stop him from doing anything reckless.
Ema: He did…?
Mahoko: Incidentally, I cleared up all those misunderstandings.
Mahoko: I also told everyone you became step siblings.
Yusuke: What? Who asked you to do that?!
Mahoko: Asahina, give that up already would you?
Mahoko: It’s because you concealed it to everyone that these rumors started in the first place!
Yusuke: T-That…that may be true but…
Mahoko: And that being said, I won’t allow Hina to be upset any longer!
Yusuke: ….All right, I get it.
Mahoko: Wow, you were surprisingly obedient this time around.
Yusuke: Shut up.
Mahoko: Yeah, Yeah. Leave it to the great Mahoko to solve it all in one piece! So rest assured, it’s all good now!
Ema: Thank you, Maho-chan.
Mahoko: No worries! That’s what best friends are for, right?
Mahoko: Even so, Sasakura is a good guy huh?~
Ema: Yeah, he really is.
Mahoko: Asahina, when you see him tomorrow you better apologize to him, okay?
Yusuke: Shut up about it already! I said I will!
Ema: (Thanks to Maho-chan and Sasakura-kun, the rumors began to die down…)
Ema: (And more importantly…)
Ema: Let’s hurry home! I’m making your favorite tonight! Curry!
Yusuke: But wouldn’t curry be more harsh on my wound…?
Ema: (I’m able to spend more time with Yusuke-kun. I’m really happy…)
