|Classes are over!
Hokke~ what was it that you're gonna do today? Are you going to prioritize the Theater Club for a while?
|Yeah. Sorry, as a final breather before the "SS"...... It's wrong to say it like that, but I want to face that huge event without regrets.
Even in activities for Theater Club, I want to show off my accomplishments in my own way.
I was born to a father who's a top idol and a mother who's a popular actress. I feel as if my father is within my reach, but my mother is still so far away.
So I want to grow a lot as a performer.
If I can have Buchou praise me even once for a performance, I feel like I would be able to take pride in half of the blood running through my body.
I will move forward as a complete "Hidaka Hokuto."
I've always been told by Buchou unfavorable things about how I am a ham of an actor, with poor acting skill and no talent, but...
Lamenting a lack of talent and using that as a reason to halt my progress is probably ridiculous, but...
I will not have many opportunities to stand on the same stage as Buchou anymore.
That person is a genuine genius. But it's only right now as a high school student that I’m able to perform in the same theater. I'll try to make the best of that chance.
That's why, I will work hard with all of my power at this performance. I will leave Buchou speechless.
|Hokke~, I thought that you hated that "Masked Pervert"-san though.|
|I do hate him. When it comes to his personality and the way he talks and acts, I despise him.
But on-stage, that sort of thing is irrelevant. It’s the world of talent. Attacking someone's character is nothing but the whining of a sore loser, isn't it?
|Hmm...... That's nice, huh? It's got a youthful kind of feeling. I think I'll go and show myself at Basketball Club today too. It is a slow period since the summer competition has ended, though.|
|Go ahead. Every little thing will nourish your skills.|
|AHAHA, saying things as though you know what you are ABOUT......♪|
|What is it, Sakasaki? Don't make fun of me.|
|No, Wataru-niisan called for me, SO...... I'll also be going to the Theater Club clubroom with YOU.
I don't know what business he has with me and it is a PAIN, but I was summoned by that person, so I can do nothing but respond to it, RIGHT?
|I see. Well, whatever. Shall we go together then?|
|RIGHT...... I'm sorry, Baru-kun. I'm taking away your FRIEND ♪|
|You're not really taking him from me. You guys, were you close or something? Today during lunch break too, it looked like you were eating lunch together, though~?|
|No, that was just Sakasaki meddling with me one-sidedly.|
|It's fine though, right? Hokke~ whoever you get chummy with, it doesn't matter to me, y'know~?|
|Hyaa? Huh~? For some reason, there's a princess-like person here!|
|What is it, Tomoya? It's rare of you to come to the second year classrooms. Did you have some sort of business with me?|
|...... e...... um|
|Hm? Sorry, it seems you're saying something but I can’t catch it.
What happened, Tomoya? I won't particularly get mad at you or anything, so I'd like you to tell me clearly.
|N-ngh...... umm-... that is......
|Cotton?2 What about cotton, Tomoya? If you don't tell me properly, I won't understand.|
|I-I... with "me"! T-take me to the ball......!|
|Ahaha! What's this kid saying? How funny~♪|
|Akehoshi, be quiet...... I'll get mad.
It's my honor, Princess-sama. If you are pleased with me, then I shall lead you.3 Your hand, please?
|OhH, he's changed completely, hasn't HE? It's still a little bit crude BUT...... Hokkee-kun has understood TOO, and went along with IT.|
|Huh? What? What do you mean?|
|Everyone in the Theater Club is already "creating their characTERS," or so it SEEMS......
Baru-kun, saying exactly what you're thinking is a virtue of yours, BUT...
* No one has the right to laugh at a person who's working earnestly. *
* But I think that is something that you would understand the most, isn't it? *
