|Shinobu-chan, don’t cry...... This is all my fault. It’s all because I wanted to run away before Kunugi-sensei found me.
Now that student council guy with the glasses is after us because of me...... I’m so sorry!
It’s okay. Please don’t apologize de gozaru.
Wall climbing is a part of training to be a ninja de gozaru...... I was thinking of moving on to it after teaching you the camouflage no jutsu de gozaru.
We got scared and ran away when the vice president of the student council was glaring at us, but we did really do something dangerous de gozaru. Right~?
Yeah! We should go apologize de gozaru. If we sincerely tell them we’re sorry, they might forgive us.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way de gozaru~♪
|Sora-chan? What’ve you been staring at the door for? Is that guy with the glasses coming this way?|
|HiHi~ Sora can see a prickly, angry color! Sora can hear footsteps too~ Oh, but it’s not the person from before~ It’s similar, but not completely the same!|
|Huh!? What does that mean? If it’s not the student council guy, then who is it?|
|EEK!? That voice was...... Kunugi-sensei! W-Wh-W-Why is Kunugi-sensei here?|
|Hasumi-kun told me about you. While “don’t climb the school building” may not be explicitly written in the academy’s rules, no one thinking rationally would allow it.
I’ll take responsibility and discipline you before any other students try to copy you. I’m sure you all must be prepared to face the consequences of your actions, right?
|Uu~ it’s dangerous here too! Sora-chan, Shinobu-chan, let’s get out of here! Dash daaash......!|
|HuHu~ Sora doesn’t wanna get yelled at either~ Sora’s gonna run away too! Bye bye~♪|
|Eeeep!? I-If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be leaving too de gozaru~!|
|Oh, honestly...... Those three are rather speedy. It’d be nice if they could put all that athletic prowess towards something productive instead of waste it on things like this.
Oh well. Setting unruly students straight is my job, after all.
I guess I’ll pick a few places they’re likely to go and wait to ambush them.
I’ll show them just how futile running away without a plan is.
|Scene Change: 1st Floor Corridor|
(Neeheehee. It doesn’t look like anyone’s noticed that I switched places with Yuuta-kun~)
(Just by wearing different colored headphones and hairpins, people mistake me for Yuuta-kun without me having to tell them I’m “Yuuta.”)
(Even the teachers didn’t notice a thing when I went to Yuuta-kun’s classes.)
(I’m his big brother, after all. I can imitate him perfectly.)
(If I dress like him, I can find out what everyone thinks of Yuuta-kun and stuff.)
(Yuuta-kun’s enjoying it too, so I guess I’ll stay as “Yuuta-kun” for a little longer......♪)
|Huh? Oh, hi there, Yuu-chan~☆|
|Who— Mitsuru-kun!? Sticking to the ceiling like that is dangerous, okay~......? The teachers’ll scold you if they catch you, you know?
Wait. Why are you hanging from the ceiling in the first place? This isn’t some kind of game, is it......?
|It’s not a game. I’m running away from Kunugi-sensei!|
|From Kunugi-sensei......? You did something to get in trouble again, huh?
He was chasing you yesterday too. You almost gave me a heart attack barreling down the hallway like that.
|HeHe~ Mitsu-chan’s talking to Yuu-chan?
Nn~ That’s weird~? He looks like Yuu-chan, but his color...... Or more like the way he’s colored is different?
Nn~ Hmm? Oh! Sora gets it now! HoHo~ That must be Hina-chan ♪ Everything makes sense that way~
Why is Hina-chan pretending to be Yuu-chan though?
|EEEK!? Part of the wall just peeled away!? And now Sora-kun’s here~!?|
|HaHa~ It really is Hina-chan after all! The one who calls Sora “Sora-kun” is Hina-chan~ Yuu-chan calls Sora “Harukawa-kun”!|
|Dang~...... I never expected the wall to move, so I ended up reacting out of character. Not bad, Sora-kun~ You’ve got me beat ♪
What are you two doing sticking to the ceiling and walls? Are you pretending to be ninjas or something?
|HiHi~ Not quite! We didn’t want to get yelled at by the teacher, so we ran away~ If he caught us, he’d probably lecture us so long that it’d be tomorrow before he let us go home~ That’s how angry he looked!|
|You’re in trouble too, Sora-kun?
If the teachers found out I switched places with Yuuta-kun, they’d probably be mad at me too~ *shivers* I’m getting chills just imagining it!
|Why not run away with us, then? We have to look for Shinobu-chan too~ We got separated from him while we were escaping.
Have you seen him around, Hinata-chan?
|Sorry, I haven’t. I see what you mean, though. You must be worried now that you’re split up, huh~? I’ll help you look for him ♪|
|Ah! Guys, we’ve got a problem! Sora can hear footsteps~ At this rate, we’ll get caught. Run! We’ve gotta run, okay?|
|Roger that! Hinata-chan, Sora-chan, hurry! We don’t have any time to waste~!|
