That’s how it is. We’re pretty busy, and while Izumi-chan might be saying some dumb things…

We might be in trouble if you ask for something too difficult from us.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Ah, that’s okay. I think this won’t be much of a burden for you two…

Umm, to put it simply: it seems the budget for Festival Eve is looking tight.

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Aah… I thought that might be case. It’s nothing but a pre-event for the school festival, yet everyone is putting a lot of power into their show.

Mikejima’s at the head, right? Just how bad is he at accounting?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
It might be partly Mikejima-senpai, but mostly that the whole business itself is messy. It seems the scale for both the Festival Eve and school festival is particularly large this year.

Which means the whole academy is fired up for these events, and that’s a happy thing in itself.

But the budget, arrangement, and preparations simply can’t keep up.

So, umm. It’s hard for me to say this, but… the outfits you guys are presenting for Fashion Show will be shared properties.

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
…What?

What the heck? Are you stupid? I wear outfits fitted perfectly for me and only for me. I won’t back down on this.

Shared? That’s the number one word I hate in this world.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
I knew you’d say that. I’m really, seriously sorry, but we can’t proceed if you don’t cooperate, Izumi-san…

Apparently there’s no other place to cut down the budget on.

The management staff is troubled too~ Can’t you please be the adult and cooperate?

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Aaaaaaabsolutely not.
Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Uuh~… Really? No matter what? Umm… I use the word shared, but I think it’s a little different from what you’re thinking, Izumi-san.

Umm, I don’t know how to explain this, but…

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
What is it? I’m getting annoyed! Be more clear, can’t you?
Arashi Narukami School Dialogue Render
All right, Izumi-chan. That’s your cue to take a deep breath… Nothing to gain from flaring up at Yuuki-kun. Let’s listen to what he has to say until the end♪
(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Ugya!? I told you not to cling to me, you damned okama!
Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Ahaha… Well, see. There’s that outfit you’re wearing, right, Izumi-san?
(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Ah, this?

It looks pretty good, right? It was quite expensive too; I don’t have money left to spend on the special effects and all that jazz, but… ah well, it was a good purchase.

Heheh. I had my favorite designer, that I’ve paid attention to since my kids’ model days, make it for me♪

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Huh… That means I might know him too?
(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Don’t you? You know, the one who often gave out snacks during breaks…

It would’ve made me fat, and I hated being fed like a pet, but he’s good at his job, at least.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Ah, as I thought. I was thinking I’ve seen that style before. That person, huh… how nostalgic; he was always so kind to us.
(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Wasn’t it for his own sake?

He must’ve thought he could tame us easily since we’re brats. You know, since if we like him enough, he might be requested for another job, right…?

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Why do you have to be so distrustful…

Though… we ended up talking about something else. I’m sorry.

So about those outfits—after you wear them for the Fashion Show, Izumi-san…

We were thinking if you’ll let us fix them up a little, so we could use them for the Spring Music Festival we’ll appear in.

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Ah, that’s what you meant by sharing?
Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Yeah. Our Spring Music Festival also use musical instruments, which already cost a lot…

And because our appearance didn’t get decided until the last minute, it seems the budget doesn’t quite fit.

I know that’s because we were too slow on things, so we don’t have the right to complain.

But paying for costumes is really looking hopeless…

UNDEAD, who will appear with us, said they’re willing to shoulder the cost for us, but we’d like to avoid that…

That’ll make us entirely dependent on UNDEAD… We’ve seriously troubled those people to no end, we can’t be adding more to our debts to them.

So please, Izumi-san. Can you guys let us wear your outfits after you’re done?

The Fashion Show might become an advertisement for the Spring Music Festival, which is killing two birds with one stone.

Is it too much to ask…? It’s too convenient for us, huh?

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Yep. Seriously, you Trickstar are always like that…

Instead of prioritizing what you want to do, try thinking about the trouble you’re causing for people.

But maybe you guys are fine as you are—like main characters… Fufufu, that’s so fitting for you, Yuu-kun.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Umm, I wonder about that? I’m just a supporting role to the end; maybe an extra…
(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
…Okay then. I accept the deal. But I have conditions.
Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Ehh? Please don’t interfere while I’m talking; you’re always like that, Izumi-san…

Err wait, really? You’ll allow us to use your outfits?

Thank God♪ Transfer student-chan did say she’d guarantee Izumi-san would say OK if I went to convince him…

But I was still worried whether I could properly negotiate!

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
You’ve always been bad at talking, Yuu-kun.

Still, we’re no longer children… I guess I can’t be kind and give you everything unconditionally. I want to gain something from this too.

You understand, right? Bargain.

Makoto Yuuki School Dialogue Render
Y-Yeah… I’m a little scared, but try saying what it is.

I do hope it’s not going to be such a mean condition… but I’ll do anything within my power.

This is an important time for Trickstar. I can’t come to a deadlock here.

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
Of course you can’t… Hey, what should I do, Naru-kun? I’m such a lucky man☆

Yuu-kun just told me he’ll listen to anything! What should I do with him? Fufufu♪

Arashi Narukami School Dialogue Render
You have the face of a villain, Izumi-chan…

Don’t act too much like degenerate, please. We’re in a delicate time too, since we’re in the middle of restoring our name.

(Model's Pride) Izumi Sena Full Render
I know. It’s my fault Knights is having a hard time now. I feel enough remorse to fill the tip of the nail on my little finger.
Arashi Narukami School Dialogue Render
No, seriously, be more sorry about it… Sheesh, what a darling of an Onii-chan we have here…
