Sorry for the wait, Shinkai-senpai! I’ve brought the things you wanted!
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
? Yuuta, what is with this little cushion and brooch…?
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
They’re the bowl of Buddha’s stone and the orb of the dragon’s neck! I borrowed them from Sakasaki-senpai and Hibiki-senpai ☆
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render

Nacchan and Wataru, huh…?

…Okay, I see… I think I can imagine how you came up with these…

(But I really wasn’t expecting him to do all this… I’d thought he would give up immediately…)

You are very creative…

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
So does that mean I’ve passed, Shinkai-senpai?
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Yes… This was pretty amusing, so yes… You have searched well… Let me take them…
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
Yippee! Now what? What’s next?
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Hmm… Alright, bring me the branch of the orb of Penglai ☆
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Yet another thing I’ve never heard of…

Hmm… The branch of the orb of Penglai… I don’t even know what Penglai is.

Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render

Hehehe ♪ You are working harder than I had thought you would, so I will give you a little hint…

Penglai is a sacred mountain, the land of immortality…

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Sacred mountain of immortality?

I think I know what you’re talking about!

Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Huh? You do?
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
Yes! I’ll bring it here at once, so please wait a little bit!
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render

Umm, wait… Ah… He’s run off… He already has an idea, huh… Amazing…

Either way, he sure is dragging me into his energetic pace…

(Alrighty! If we’re talking about immortality, I know exactly who to go to!)

(Vampires are the epitome of immortality! And this school only has two vampires– Sakuma-senpai and Sakuma Ritsu-senpai!)

(So lemme visit the one I’m closer to first…)

Sakuma-senpai! Please wake up once again!

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Ugh… What is it now, Yuuta-kun?

Weren’t you training with Kanata-kun?

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
I’m currently taking a test to see if I can train with him or not! Do you have the branch of the orb of Penglai, Sakuma-senpai? I want to borrow it!
Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render
Zzz, zzz…
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
Ah, Sakuma-senpai! I’m explaining something– don’t fall asleep like that! Wake uuuup!
Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render
Yawn. Branch of the sphere of Penglai? What is that? Do I have that thing?
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
That’s what I’m asking. Do you not have it? If you don’t, then maybe Sakuma Ritsu-senpai does.
Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Huh? If I had it, I would assume it would be in my coffin. Wait a second, let me see if I can find it.

Branch with an orb? Branch with an oooooorb?

Hmm? Oh! This might be it, Yuuta-kun!

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
This is a stick for shoulder massaging, right? A stick isn’t exactly a branch, though.
Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render
They are similar, seeing that they are both made of wood. And it’s got a sphere, too– although it is a little massage ball.
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Ah, now that you’ve said it, I do see it!

Yes! I’d figured the branch of the orb of Penglai was something like this! I’ll be borrowing this for a bit!

By the way, why was this in your coffin?

Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Because my shoulders have grown stiff. I am but an old grandfather, after all.

Yuuta-kun, I am at my limit… I feel like I will turn into ash if I leave my coffin at this hour… Are you done here?

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
Yup! Thank you very much! I won’t wake you up again, so please sleep all you want!
Rei Sakuma School Dialogue Render

Yes, yes. Do your best out there, Yuuta-kun. I shall support you from my dreams. Good night.

Zzz, zzz…

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Good niiiight ♪

Hmm… He said his shoulders are stiff from old age, but isn’t it because he keeps sleeping in a coffin?

Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Umm…? What exactly is this…?
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
The branch of the orb of Penglai! I borrowed it from Sakuma-senpai! And I can massage your shoulders with this, too! Like this! Tap tap ☆
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render

Ah, that feels wonderful ♪ I love this… A little bit to the right, please ♪

Hehehe ♪ Alright, let me take the massage sti-…the branch of the orb of Penglai… Only two left now…

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
I’m getting close to the end! I’ll keep doing my best ☆
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
…By the way, Yuuta-kun… Why are you working this hard…? Don’t you find this tiring…? Don’t you want to give up…?
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Huh? Umm… I never felt that way, no.

Hmm… Well, my brother tends to burden himself with everything and do it all on his own.

2wink’s in a pretty good spot right now, and I haven’t even noticed how it got there.

Even if they’re small, he sees all our work to the end, and does his best to protect 2wink’s popularity.

So he’s secretly working way harder than me, for sure. He seems to think I don’t know, though.

It makes me furious, or, like, really frustrates me.

We’re a unit of only two people, so I want to do something for 2wink’s sake, too.

So I’m seeing this as a trial for that, and I’m happy to take it. It feels like I’m making progress on my own, so I don’t find this “tiring” or want to quit it or anything.

I’m gonna show Aniki the fruits of my labor! I’m gonna shove them right in his face and he’s gonna be so surprised!

…That made me sound like some kid having a rebellious phase, didn’t it? That’s embarrassing… Please forget I said that.

Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render

People who try to do everything on their own are such a pain to deal with, yes…?

We have someone like that in Ryuseitai, as well… He causes so much trouble for everyone around him…

But that is a heroic thing to do… Not that I know much about heroes myself…

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render
Heroic?
Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Hehehe… Maybe you and your brother are the heroes of one another ♪
Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Really? Hehe ♪ Then I’ll have to work even harder!

Heroes are supposed to be invincible, after all! Now please tell me what you want me to bring you next, Shinkai-senpai!

Kanata Shinkai School Dialogue Render
Alright, this is the last one… Please bring me the swallow’s cowrie shell and the fire rat’s fur coat…
