Ema: Hey, Yusuke-kun. Isn’t your career counselling meeting today?
Yusuke: The person in charge isn’t around. Jeez, what the heck are they doing?
Yusuke: Anyway, let’s just go home.
Ema: (I wonder if it’s really okay…)
Teacher: 3rd year Asahina Yusuke-kun in Class 1. Please report to the to career counselling room as soon as possible…
Yusuke: What? Why, now?!
Ema: Well, should I wait until your done?
Yusuke: No, it’s fine. I’m not sure how long it’ll take. Go on ahead without me.
Ema: All right, see you later then.
Ema: …Time to go home then.
Ema: …! Looks like it happened again…
Ema: (Thankfully Yusuke-kun isn’t with me. I’d rather not make worry him over it…)
Ema: (But…It really is troublesome. I wonder who…)
Minakami: What’s with that look? You look pretty absent minded there, Hinata-senpai.
Minakami: Oh?~ Are your shoes aren’t in the shoe cupboard?
Minakami: Ahaha! Could it be that your shoes were thrown away?
Minakami: You’re a senior who spent 3 years here! I wonder who would throw away your shoes? Senpai, someone must really dislike you!
Minakami: I feel sooo sorry for you..
Minakami: I have to admit they were some pretty looking loafers.
Ema: …What? Do you know what happened to them?
Minakami: Who knows? I just have a keen eye for things. Did I guess right? Anyway, I’m going to go wait for Asahina-senpai’s meeting to finish.
Minakami: Until next time, my poor little Hinata-senpai!~
Ema: (At any rate, I can’t just hang my head over it…)
Ema: (I’ll have to return home with my P.E. sports shoes…)
Not sure if this always happens? Maybe only when you also have a good relationship with Fuuto?
Fuuto: What are you doing, Nee-san?
Ema: Ah, Fuuto-kun! It’s unusual to see you here during this hour.
Fuuto: I was called from my classroom. It was a chat about my attendances.
Fuuto: Jeez, such a worthless conversation. It was a waste of my time.
Ema: It’s concerning your high school life. So I don’t think it’s a waste of time.
Fuuto: I think it is, so just keep your nose out of my business. So, what about you?
Ema: Hm? What do you mean?
Fuuto: You’ve been standing there in front of the shoe cupboard with that gloomy look on your face. What’s going on?
Ema: Um… Well…
Fuuto: Hurry up I don’t have all day.
Ema: The truth is… my shoes are gone.
Ema: I lost them…
Fuuto: You lost them? Like I’d believe that.
Fuuto: Oh I see now…
Fuuto: Though I never pegged you as someone to have people bearing grudges against you.
Ema: Lately I’ve gotten a lot of harassments. It’s been pretty troublesome…
Fuuto: Any idea who it is?
Ema: (The harassments started ever since I met Minakami-san at the beginning of the new term.)
Ema: (I hadn’t considered it before, but with the way Minakami-san was acting…)
Ema: (No, I can’t suspect her just yet. I don’t have any solid proof.)
Ema: …No, I don’t.
Fuuto: Hmm? You sure about that?
Ema: I-I am.
Fuuto: There’s no point putting up a front. I can see right through you.
Fuuto: I’ll ask again. You sure you don’t have any idea who could’ve done it?
Fuuto: At this rate I was probably better off not asking.
Ema: Actually, there is someone I think may have done it…
Fuuto: Go on.
Ema: On the day of the entrance ceremony, I met a girl who was a under-classman of Yusuke-kun’s.
Ema: I’m pretty sure she likes Yusuke-kun..
Ema: I’m sure she may have misunderstood when she saw me and Yusuke-kun together. I think this may be the cause.
Fuuto: Oh? So it’s that woman named Minakami, huh?
Fuuto: She’s in the class right next door to mine. I always see her sticking close to that stupid Yusuke.
Ema: Whenever we pass each other at school she gives me these cold stares.
Fuuto: I see. Well, the jealousy of a woman is pretty frightening.
Fuuto: So why doesn’t that idiot do anything about it?
Ema: Probably because he hasn’t noticed it.
Fuuto: Huh? How stupid can he possibly be? Why don’t you just spill it to him already?
Ema: Yusuke-kun isn’t the one at fault. So I don’t have any reason to tell him.
Ema: If it gets out of hand, I’ll tell him. So can you keep it a secret for now?
Fuuto: You say that now, but how do you know it won’t end up making things worse?
Ema: I’ll be fine, besides…
Ema: Even if I’m worried over it, I still have a reliable younger brother.
Fuuto: Hm? Since when did I become your “reliable younger brother”?
Fuuto: But you know if something does happen contact me, okay? I usually always have my phone with me.
Ema: (Hehe, Fuuto-kun is really kind today.)
Ema: …Thank you.
Ema: Hm? What’s wrong?
Fuuto: That face of yours isn’t so bad. Well, it’s far from my favorite.
Ema: (I spoke too soon. Seems that tongue of his is sharp as ever.)
Fuuto: Ah, it’s here.
Fuuto: I got a ride from my manager. You want to come along too?
Ema: I-I’m fine…!
Fuuto: Do you really want to be seen walking around like that?
Ema: B-But I have sport shoes…
Ema: Er, please lend me a ride…
Fuuto: Haha. If that’s your way of asking then it’s pretty cute.
Ema: (As Fuuto-kun said so and smiled, I felt myself become more relieved…)
Ema: (As for the harassment, If I endure it I’m sure it’ll stop sooner or later…)
Ema: (I believe so at this moment.)
