Yui: I choose student council.
Zeus: I will leave it to you, Kusanagi Yui. You will teach them about humans and love.
Yui: (I left the room, my path decided.)
In the School Hallway
???: What’s first period?!
Yui: (I heard a voice from an empty classroom and turned to look.)
Yui: (Inside, there was a student I’d never seen before.)
Yui: (But there wasn’t just one student. There were various students of all different kinds, standing in groups and exchanging words with each other.)
Yui: (After a little while, I realized that these were the students Zeus created.)
Yui: (They had immediately gone to school and started their lives here.)
Japanese student: Does anyone here know the details on class?!
Greek study: Hmm…What was it again?
Nordic student: …body.
Japanese student: Hungh? I’m very sorry, could you say that one more time please?!
Nordic student: …it’s on the human body.
Japanese student: Right! That’s it! Thank you very much thank you!
Norse student: …welcome.
Yui: (They somehow had some individuality, and seemed to be able to answer like us.)
Yui: (Keeping them in the back of my mind, I went over to my own classroom.)
In the Classroom
Yui: (When I looked in, I saw some of the gods were already in there.)
Yui: (It was the three who had participated in the entrance ceremony.)
Yui: Good morning.
Apollon: Hey. We’ve been waiting, Fairy-san.
Apollon: We heard that there’s some kind of activity we’re supposed to do, but do you know anything about it?
Yui: Do you… already know about the student council?
Yui: (Balder gracefully stood up, pulled out a chair, and offered it to me.)
Yui: Thank you very much.
Balder: Caduceus-sensei came in just now and told us about it.
Yui: Ah, Balder-san… You’re using the last names I gave everyone.
Balder: I’m the one who requested them, but anyway, you took the time to think them up for us.
Yui: Thank you very much for your consideration. I’m very happy.
Balder: Really? That’s good. Seeing your smile, I feel happy, too.
Yui: (With a gentle smile on his face, Balder softly stroked my cheek.)
Yui: (Was that just regular physical contact…? I couldn’t help but be surprised at this unfamiliar behavior.)
Yui: (Apollon did it, Balder did it… Was skinship just something gods liked?)
Yui: (His eyes looked at me kindly. I felt my heartbeat quicken at his beautiful smile.)
Tsukito: …This is unnecessary. Could we possibly return to the topic at hand?
Yui: Ah, yes!
Yui: (My voice betrayed my thoughts.)
Tsukito: Kusanagi Yui.
Tsukito: Please instruct us on student council. Due to our unfamiliarity with human culture, we do not know what sort of activity it is.
Yui: (He was looking at me with a serious expression, and I found myself gazing into those amber eyes.)
Yui: (Though he hadn’t spoken much until now, I was happy that Tsukito listened to my explanations with enthusiasm.)
Yui: (I was silent for about one minute, mentally organizing information about student council.)
Yui: The student council is an organization that holds school-wide events, manages public conduct on campus, and generally works toward improving the school.
Yui: The members are made up of a few people selected from the student body. They work mainly during extracurricular hours, but of course, school events are special cases.
Tsukito: Events… What does that involve?
Yui: (He was staring straight at me, and only his hand was moving, taking notes at a high speed.)
Yui: (Incredible… It was a divine miracle.)
Yui: Um… Well…
Yui: They include things like a field trip for new students to get to know each other, a sports festival where people compete with their reflexes, a culture festival where art pieces are exhibited… There are all sorts of things.
Yui: So, while studying is basically done in the classroom…
Yui: With events, we can go off campus and do many things that involve the entire student body, so there are a lot of things we can do that can’t be learned normally.
Apollon: Things that can’t be learned normally! Does that mean they’re special? That’s so so wonderful! It’s really, really exciting!
Apollon: I really want to be a member of the student council, but how do I get chosen? I’m getting so excited about doing something new!
Yui: (I felt a little bit happier knowing how much interest Apollon had in something humans do.)
Yui: About that…
Yui: (There were a lot of students at this school now, but I wanted members of Class A to be in the student council so they could learn more about humans.)
Yui: (…Even if we didn’t have enough students here right now to fill up a student council.)
Yui: Okay. Then how about you try running for office?
Yui: (I said this to the three people in the room.)
Yui: Oftentimes, candidates are nominated by other people, but it’s possible to take that on by yourself.
Apollon: Really…? Is it really okay? Can I go ahead and nominate myself?!
Yui: It’s probably better for the school if the people running really want to do it.
Apollon: Tsuki-Tsuki, did you hear that? You heard it, didn’t you, Tsuki-Tsuki? I’m a candidate… a candidate!! I could just jump for joy!
Tsukito: You’ve already hopped a few centimeters. I am fine with anyone.
Apollon: Haha, no need to be shy. You’re happy too, aren’t you? That’s true, right? A candidate! Oh, it sounds so sweet to my ears!
Yui: (He seemed to have some extreme expectations for the student council. Was he okay…?)
Tsukito: I am not thinking anything. Please refrain from speaking irresponsibly.
Apollon: Oh gee, Tsuki-Tsuki’s such a shy person.
Tsukito: That’s not it.
Yui: (Apollon poked at Tsukito’s cheek with his index finger.)
Yui: (Normally, I thought it’d make him mad, but Tsukito allowed it, his face expressionless.)
Yui: (Maybe they somehow or other get along with each other.)
Apollon: Okay, shall we go to the student council room? Let’s go!
Yui: (He grabbed Tsukito’s shoulder and abruptly changed course for the door.)
Yui: (Without any sign of resistance, Tsukito turned.)
Yui: Ah, isn’t this class time…?
Balder: Did you not hear? We don’t have class today.
Yui: Eh? Even though it’s the first day of classes?
Balder: Caduceus-sensei said he wants us to focus on student council activities today.
Yui: (Because it was Thoth, I inadvertently thought he might have just not wanted to teach us today.)
Yui: …If that’s the case, then let’s go ahead and concentrate on student council today.
Yui: (I still couldn’t really accept it, but it looked like everyone was interested in humans for now, and I didn’t want to ruin this chance.)
Apollon: Yes! Yes! Let’s be off!
Yui: (Apollon took one of my hands in his own and rushed out of the classroom.)
In the Student Council Room
Yui: (Because we ran, we reached the student council room immediately.)
Apollon: It feels different in here from classroom. The sense of “specialness” is sharp! Mmhmm! Good, good!
Yui: (As if sensing something good, he nodded happily.)
Yui: (Still grasping my hand, he looked around the room, inspecting it.)
Yui: (I wasn’t used to holding hands with people, and I felt oddly nervous.)
Apollon: Hm…? What is it, Fairy-san? Did something happen?
Yui: (He turned to look at me, and his face was so filled with light, I unintentionally squinted.)
Yui: My hand… Um… could you please let it go?
Apollon: Do I… have to let go? No matter what?
Yui: (He squeezed my hand firmly, as if pleading.)
Apollon: Your hand feels so nice when I touch it, I want to stay like this.
Yui: I-I’m sorry… Even so, I’m a little…
Apollon: Do you not like this?
Yui: Ah, no… I’m just… not used to it.
Apollon: Okay, let’s get you used to it. Then I’ll be happy, really happy!
Yui: (He continued to look straight at me with a hopeful expression.)
Tsukito: Um… May I ask something?
Yui: (I’d already forgotten Tsukito was here too.)
Yui: (I was so nervous about holding hands, and he was so quiet, too…)
Yui: …What is it?
Yui: (Feeling my face grow red all of a sudden, I turned to respond to him and escaped from Apollon’s grasp.)
Yui: (The warmth I’d felt slipped away, and while I was relieved, I was also a little lonely.)
Tsukito: …No, it’s fine.
Yui: Eh? Did your question get answered?
Yui: (I wonder what happened. He returned to his normal expressionless face and was looking around the room.)
Yui: (I was unable to quell a strange nervousness…)
Yui: (I wondered if the nonsensical way we tried to understand each other came from the difference between gods and humans, or if it was something else…)
Yui: (At that time, Balder came into the student council room.)
Apollon: You’re here, Baru-Baru. You’re finally here. You’re pretty late, aren’t you? Such an easygoing person.
Balder: Sorry. I fell over a few times coming over here… It was bad! I thought that I shouldn’t try to hurry, so I took my time walking.
Yui: (I felt like it probably wasn’t as difficult a journey as he said it was…)
Tsukito: Apollon Agana Belea. It is school regulation to refrain from running in the halls. His behavior was correct.
Apollon: That’s the first time, the very first time I’ve heard that. Where did you learn that, Tsuki-Tsuki?
Tsukito: It is recorded in the student handbook. It was newly added this morning.
Yui: I guess the student handbook updates automatically.
Yui: (As expected of the gods…)
Apollon: Gee… Zeus is so selfish…
Yui: (Apollon sighed, his expression unhappy.)
Balder: Agana Belea, please don’t make that face. I’m very sorry for arriving late. Since everyone’s here, why don’t we start up the student council?
Yui: First, let’s decide on our roles. I’ll write them out on the board.
Yui: (I took a piece of chalk in my hand and wrote down the necessary positions for student council.)
Student body president.
Yui: (And I was about to write treasurer, but I hesitated. There’s no money here, so that would be meaningless.)
Yui: (I considered some positions that could replace the treasurer… and I decided on disciplinary officer.)
Yui: First, let’s decide on a student president. That’s the role that unifies the whole student council.
Yui: We’ll nominate someone for candidacy…
Apollon: Me, I’ll do it! I think I could do it, so just leave it to me. Candidate! Candidate!
Balder: I agree. A leading role really suits him. Plus, shouldn’t the one who wants to do it be the president?
Tsukito: I have no objections.
Yui: Then, Apollon-san, please be our student council president.
Apollon: I’ve been entrusted, so leave it me from now on! Pre-si-dent… Everyone call me President from now on, okay? Okay?!
Yui: The vice president is…
Apollon: Fairy-san… I can’t think of anyone but you. I want your support. …Should I not?
Yui: (Apollon was looking at me intently with those pretty eyes.)
Yui: (I couldn’t move. I had to look away from that beautiful, serious gaze.)
Balder: Of course, you know a lot about humans, but I also think you’re well-qualified. How about it? Agana Belea agrees too.
Yui: …Ah, okay.
Yui: If that’s the case, then I will be vice president.
Yui: (Me, taking on such an important position, even nominated for it. That would’ve never happened in my world.)
Yui: (But just from the idea that someone is relying on me made me want to do it. It was a mysterious feeling…)
Apollon: Thank you, Fairy-san. Truly, thank you!
Yui: (Apollon expressed his happiness so openly, I thought he was going to cry tears of joy.)
Yui: Ah, no, it’s no problem.
Yui: (I was feeling nervous somehow, but I needed to work hard.)
Balder: …And I think Totsuka-san would be appropriate for the disciplinary officer role.
Balder: He’s the type to value the rules. I’ll take the remaining secretary role.
Tsukito: I have no issues with this. No matter the position, I want to carry it out properly.
Yui: Okay, then it’s settled. This looks really good!
Apollon: Then, we should plan our first event. We’re allowed to devote ourselves to the student council today, so I want to hold an event! I do!
Yui: Within today… are you serious?
Apollon: Of course I am, of course! I’m serious, totally serious.
Balder: Agana Belea supports it, but is it possible? Please stay within the bounds of what you think we can do.
Yui: (I was really glad for his small bit of consideration.)
Yui: Because the scope is so small, I’m afraid that…
Yui: (But, I didn’t want to dampen their enthusiasm, and I wanted to work with them as much as I could.)
Yui: Since it’s the first one, I think it’s okay to do it with just the student council members.
Balder: Ah, I see. The bond between us becomes the key to school life. That’s a good way to think about it.
Apollon: If that’s decided, then… Our very own brain, the intelligent Tsuki-Tsuki! It’s your time to shine! Tell us your opinion on our first event.
Tsukito: I recommend a field trip.
Tsukito: According to Kusanagi Yui, a field trip is for exchange between new students. It’s appropriate for our intentions right now.
Yui: Is there a place we can leave to around here?
Yui: For what it’s a worth, going to the mountains or something is standard for field trips.
Yui: (As I said this, I looked at the scenery stretching out beyond the window.)
Yui: (The forest and the plains spread out under the clear blue sky… I could clearly see how lush the natural scenery was.)
Yui: (But of course I couldn’t see the whole picture. It wasn’t clear what exactly was in the Garden.)
Tsukito: There is a map included with the student handbook. We should use it for our decision.
Yui: (At Tsukito’s suggestion, we each took out our handbooks and looked over the map.)
Yui: (The Garden was roughly made up of an ocean and a single island.)
Yui: (In the center of the map was a large, round land mass, and everything else was ocean.)
Yui: (Our school was located in the middle of the island. Huge mountains towered in the north, and the rest of the land was covered in grassy plains and forests. There were also a few rivers flowing across the map.)
Yui: (To the northeast was a wide beach, and the northwest was a wasteland.)
Yui: (There were other buildings, like cottages and things, marked on the map.)
Yui: (But there weren’t any good entertainment establishments, like a movie theater, aquarium, or amusement park.)
Apollon: I’m interested in the standard for field trips – the mountains. No matter what, the basics are important!
Balder: I’ve been looking at the grassy plains. We could enjoy the flowers there in the meadow. It might be a pleasant place to have a social event.
Yui: What do you think, Tsukito-san?
Tsukito: As long as we complete our goals, I’m fine with anywhere.
Apollon: Ohh, no need to hold back. …Ah, look at this! There’s a pasture here. That’s pretty rare.
Tsukito: Then, I will go with that.
Yui: (No matter how I looked at it, it just seemed like Apollon’s recommendation…)
Yui: So everyone’s thinking something different…
Balder: What do you think?
Balder: We don’t happen to have the necessary knowledge to decide what’s better or worse, so I think we should decide with your opinion.
Balder: Could I ask you to support one of the ideas we put out just now?
Yui: I understand.
Yui: (We should commemorate our first event. I thought about what would be a good place for that.)
Yui: (The mountains Apollon suggested, the meadow where Balder said we could enjoy the flowers, or Tsukito’s pasture…)
