Makoto Shimada: “Oh man, everyone’s working hard, huh~”
Today, Shimada had come to visit Karasuno by himself. He seemed to be in a good mood, though it was still a mystery what he was thinking.
Ittetsu Takeda: “Thank you very much for supplying refreshments.”
Makoto Shimada: “No, no, it was nothing.”
Shimada thanked Takeda eagerly.
Shimada had brought refreshments on behalf of all the alumni – sports drinks from Shimada Mart.
Keishin Ukai: “But it must be hard to bring enough for this many people.”
Makoto Shimada: “It’s only my responsibility as an alumnus. Didn’t we have the same thing in our time?”
Keishin Ukai: “Yeah, we did, we did. Though we didn’t really know who it was from, huh.”
Makoto Shimada: “Right~ But now it’s our turn to be in that position.”
Keishin Ukai: “I see…… When you say it like that, I feel really old.”
Makoto Shimada: “You don’t just “feel old,” you are old, yeah? If you’re a coach then it’s like you’re middle-aged already.”
Keishin Ukai: “I guess you’re right……”
Although he nodded, Ukai couldn’t hide his shock. He still felt pretty young.
Makoto Shimada: “By the way…… where are you planning on having the mixed team tournament?”
Shimada had heard about the plan to have a tournament from Yamaguchi. He had come this time to ask about the current schedule.
Ittetsu Takeda: “Right…… At the moment, we’re planning on using the first and second gymnasiums.”
Ittetsu Takeda: “I’d have liked to hold it in a larger location, but there’s nowhere else we can use.”
Takeda scratched his head in disappointment. When he saw Takeda doing so, Shimada grinned broadly for some reason.
Makoto Shimada: “Right? It would be best to hold it at a really large scale in a big venue.”
Ittetsu Takeda: “That’s true, but there would obviously be a lot of expenses involved in renting a location, so of course that much would be……”
Makoto Shimada: “That’s true, that’s true~”
Although he agreed sympathetically, for some reason he seemed happy.
But the good-natured Takeda didn’t notice Shimada’s unusual behavior.
The one who stared suspiciously at Shimada was Ukai.
Keishin Ukai: “You…… What are you scheming?”
Makoto Shimada: “Hehehe, just a little something? Well, just give me some time. It’s nothing bad.”
Keishin Ukai: “You’re so obviously being suspicious!! Stop, would you? We don’t want to get involved.”
Makoto Shimada: “It’s fine, it’s fine. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the tournament, so……”
Makoto Shimada: “Bye!”
And with that, Shimada left the gymnasium as if he was fleeing.
Ittetsu Takeda: “I wonder what’s wrong?”
Keishin Ukai: “…… He’s definitely scheming something ridiculous.”
