|Location: At the Station|
|Stupid! An utter disgrace! At this rate, I will be late for our arrangements…!|
|HaHa~♪ Sorry! If Sora causes trouble, he apologizes!|
|No, it’s nothing you need to apologize for, Harukawa-kun… It is my fault for failing to control myself. I ended up getting completely caught up in the game…|
|HiHi~♪ Did you have fun?
Tsuka-chan, Sora asked “Are you okay on time?” many times, but you wouldn’t let go of the controller, you know~?
You said “I will not stop until I win!”… But Tsuka-chan is really a beginner at games, so if you wanna win against Sora, “Yer a hundred years too early, punk!”, you know~?
Sora is sorry! Tsuka-chan is a guest who came to the game club to play, so Sora should’ve been more hospitable, huh~?
|No, it would’ve injured my pride if you held back.
It was my mistake losing my composure. Though it did look like I could win just by pressing buttons.
|Games aren’t so simple, you know~?
It is possible to win with a strong element of luck and randomly pressing buttons, but in general, you couldn’t win against a seasoned veteran no matter how hard you try!
That’s how it is with every activity people do. A difference in ability is not an absolute difference.
But here is a technique to it. Anyone who puts in effort can gain new possibilities.
|Hm, so it’s the same as martial arts, I suppose? Games are surprisingly deep…|
|HuHu~♪ If you like, please come and play games anytime, okay~?
The game club doesn’t have many members, so we can’t really fully enjoy party games that need lots of people, you know~?
Well, Sora could play with both hands and feet separately…
But playing alone has no meaning.
|I understand. It can irritating because there’s the possibility of losing, but that is exactly what makes competition interesting.
That feeling of satisfaction, of exhilaration after a victory…♪
…Oh, we’ve arrived at the meeting point.
Oneesama~! Your loyal, obedient knight, Tsukasa Suou, has now arrived!
Fufu. You say I shouldn’t be saying embarrassing things so loudly? So you are feeling shy, Oneesama? That is so very cute…♪
|Huh~? Anzu! Hello! When Sora meets a person he knows, he greets them!|
|Harukawa-kun. Oneesama is older than you. I don’t think you should be calling her so informally.|
|HeHe~♪ If anything, Anzu probably wouldn’t like being treated so distantly, you know~?
Anyway. Tsuka-chan, you asked to meet up with Anzu? Why? Ah, are you gonna go on a date or something…?
Then Sora is a third wheel here, huh~? Sora just ended up following you here, but he’ll leave now! See you tomorrow, Tsuka-chan.♪
|Ahh no, it’s nothing so suggestive as that… Please don’t come to some weird conclusions – it’s rude to Oneesama, you see?|
|Hmm? Then why did you meet up? Sora’s curious, you know~? If Sora shouldn’t be asking, he won’t, but…|
|Um, well… To tell the truth, Harukawa-kun, I’ve been entrusted with a job.
It is an important job that could sway even my own destiny…
It was no use thinking by myself, so I sought the assistance of a producer, Oneesama.
Also, it is slightly related to Tenshouin Oniisama, so I would like to employ his help if I can…
But he is far above my league, so I cannot ask him so easily.
|HoHo~♪ Tsuka-chan has an Oneesama and an Oniisama, what a big family, huh~?|
|We aren’t exactly blood related, but I call them that way because I feel close to them.
Especially in Oneesama’s case, I haven’t referred to her by her own name very much lately.
…Is it a little too familiar?
Fufu, it isn’t? Very well… From now on, as my very own exclusive privilege, I shall continue to call you by the special name “Oneesama”♪
…Speaking of which, you have a real younger brother too, right? What does he refer to you as?
Hm, usually by your name…?
You have a surprisingly amiable relationship… or rather, perhaps you are already at that age where “Oneechan” would be too embarrassing to use?
|Tsuka-chan, Tsuka-chan, you’re getting off topic, you know~?|
|Oh goodness, this is another bad habit of mine… When there is something I’m interested in, I tend to pursue it without hesitation, and the conversation jumps all over the place.
Anyway. The train is about the arrive, so let us first enter the station.
We are running low on time as it is. We shouldn’t be standing still any longer than this.
Now, Oneesama, may I have your hand?♪
|Weeee! Let’s all hold hands, okay~♪|
|H-Harukawa-kun, I never said “May I have your hand?” to you… You are a gentleman the same age as me, there should be no need for an escort, right?|
|…Well, I suppose it’s alright. That boy certainly has a unique sense of social distance.|
