Haaah~. 'M glad we managed t'make it in time for delivery day somehow…

(Oshi-san is real meticulous, so we're aaalways jus' making our deadlines. I really thought we wouldn’t make it this time.

"Everyone helped out, but we still didn't make it in time~"—we wouldn't have been able t'face people with an excuse like that.

But really, jus' how big is this StarFes gonna be anyways, needin' so many outfits?

Well, I guess it is Christmas. Everyone's gettin' all festive, huh.

In the place I was in before, nobody really wanted huge cakes or presents or anythin' like that. Really, jus' to decorate up a bit, and t'have everyone singing together…

But even with jus' those things, it was really fun… if we were to do Christmas in such a way, I wonder what'd be like? I can't even imagine~

Even I'm a little excited, huh~

I wonder if Valkyrie is gonna take part?

'M not gonna ask somethin' like that of Oshi-san though, since he’s all fatigued now that our work is done. Maybe I'll try asking once he's recovered a bit.)

Brrr…!

Agh, the wind is so cold… I guess I didn't notice, bein' holed up in the clubroom for so long. Over the past few days, a ton of snow piled up, huh?

Nnah~, at this rate, it might turn out t'be a white Christmas this year.

…Hmm? Sounds like some beautiful song…

♪~♪~

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

So, the source of that song is Hajime-kun, huh.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Ah, hello Kagehira-senpai. Ehehe, I suppose you heard my humming.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Yep~. Hi there ♪

…Wait. I shouldn't greet'ya with a smile. "Ra*bits" is the enemy who stole Nazuna-nii away, after all.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Fufu. You always say that, Kagehira-senpai, but you never fail to call out to us, right? If we're really enemies, you wouldn’t do that.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

I guess you're right. It's all that angelic smile of yours… 's no fair~

Anyways, what're you doin' here? You've got one of the school's brooms, so are ya in the middle of a "School Part-Time Job"?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

That's right. I'm cleaning up right now. But since the snow keeps piling up, I can't make any progress.

Though it's not like I can just skip out on working. Since I can’t do much about the snow, I'm searching for and cleaning up any trash that is sticking out, instead.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Sounds pretty rough… if there's anything I can do, maybe I can help out?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Oh, no! There's really nothing like that. Actually, it's kind of like a treasure hunt, so I'm almost having fun with it ♪

Look. Right around here, I search for the little bit that’s sticking out and dig it up. Just like this...

There, I got it. ♪ See? Isn't it like a treasure hunt?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah~ I think I get what you're saying~. It’s fun to go searchin' for something. Y'might dig up somethin' really good.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Ehehe, that's exactly it~. I'm glad you get it, Kagehira-senpai.

Besides, weren't you and Itsuki-senpai in much more of a pinch? Great work finishing all those StarFes costumes. I'm glad you made it in time.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Thanks so much for your help before ♪ Thanks to that, we were able to deliver all the outfits~

Oshi-san's outfits are the absolute best, so it’d be bad if he were t’miss the deadline and end up losing the value he deserves.

I really am happy we made it. It's really all 'cause everyone helped out.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

No, no! I'm glad that I could return the favor just a little, since you're always looking out for me. ♪ If you ever need me again…

  • cough, cough*!
Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnaaah!? Hajime-kun, did'ya catch a cold?

Y'overworked yourself while we were making StarFes outfits, and that weakened ya…! You worked super late that night, after all…

What should I do~!? I can't let one'a the kids from Nazuna-nii's unit get sick…! Wait, I know! How ‘bout you come with me to the hospital right now!?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Kagehira-senpai. Please calm down…! I'm alright, see~?

I probably just started coughing since it's so dry. So, I don't think I'm sick, really! The air is really dry this time of year.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Huh~…? Are ya seriously okay…?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Yes. Thank you for your concern ♪

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah! 'S not like I was worried or anything!? It would just be inexcusable to Nazuna-nii, that's all!

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Fufu, I get it. It's for Nii~chan's sake, right?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

'M glad you understand. Don' scare me like that, coughing all of a sudden.

Y'worked too much before, an' it's gotten real cold lately. It wouldn't be strange if someone’s health got bad, y’know? That's why I thought y'caught a cold too, Hajime-kun.

Seems like everyone's catchin' colds in my class, too. I can hear people coughing all over the place.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Yeah, you're definitely right~. My class is the same way. Yesterday, there were a bunch of people out sick… people need to be careful, since it's the time of year where it gets cold very fast.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Yep~, brr…! Talkin' about the weather made me cold~

Hajime-kun, isn’t it best to call it a day? You've cleaned plenty enough. If y'keep going, you really will catch a cold at this rate, yeah?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

I'm alright~ I actually have a heat pack on my back, so I'm nice and warm ♪

Besides, I'm only part of the way through my work, so I can't just leave it unfinished now. All there's left is to clean this spot, after all.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Yeah… y'can't just abandon your part-time job, I guess.

Hmmm…… Oh, that's right!

If you're gonna keep goin', then at least eat this~? Here, it's a candy. If y'have this, it should make your throat less dry, I’d hope?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Uwaah ♪ Thank you very much, Kagehira-senpai.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Whew~. I sure am glad we managed t'meet the delivery deadline...

(Oshi-san was porin' over every l'il detail like always, so it was a close shave. I really thought we weren't gonna make it this time 'round.

There's no way we'd be able t'show our faces sayin' "We ain't up to snuff 'cuz we were busy helpin' out everyone~" or somethin' like that.

But seriously, how big is StarFes gonna be if we're makin' this many costumes?

It's Christmas, so I guess everyone's gettin' into the merry mood.

Where I was from, we didn't need a big cake or presents, we all just did a bit a decoratin' an' singing together...

Still, it sure was fun... I wonder what Christmas there'd be like if it was this kinda scale. I can't picture it at all~

I'm kinda lookin' forward to this though~

I wonder if Valkyrie's gonna get in on this?

Oshi-san's dead tired after finishin' everything, so I don't wanna ask him right now, but maybe when he's feelin' better I will.)

Ugh, brrrrrr!

Well I'll be, that breeze sure was chilly... Maybe it's 'cause I've been cooped up in the clubroom and ended up not noticin', but the snow's really piled up the past few days, huh?

Nnah~, it's gonna be a real White Christmas this year.

Oh, Kagehira-senpai ♪ Good afternoon. Ehehe, you caught me humming a tune.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Heya~, g'afternoon ♪

Wait. Nn~, don't just say hello and smile at me. Yer an enemy, one of those Ra*bit kids that stole Nazuna-nii from us an' all.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Fufu. Even though you always says that, Kagehira-senpai, you still call out to me, don't you? I don't think we're enemies at all.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

That's 'cause yer always smilin' like yer some kinda angel. Yer a sneaky one~

By the way, what're ya doin' out here? Are ya sweepin' up the school fer a part-time job or somethin' like that?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Mmhmm. But no matter how much I sweep, the snow keeps piling up, so I'm not making any progress at all.

Since there's nothing I can do about the snow and I can't just skip out on it or leave, I've decided to just pick out the trash that comes up while I sweep.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

That's some trouble yer in, huh... There anythin' I can do to lend a helpin' hand with?

Hajime: Well, there actually isn't much to it. It's actually a little fun, since it feels like a treasure hunt. ♪

Look here. It seems like there's something stick up from the snow here, so if we dig it up a little bit... Like this...

Okay, got it ♪ See? It's like I'm hunting for treasure, isn't it?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Nnah, I kinda get what ya mean~. It's fun whenever I find stuff. It's like havin' a blind date with somethin' good.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Ehehe, I'm glad you think so~. I'd be happy to have you along, Kagehira-senpai.

Besides, you and Itsuki-senpai were in more of a pinch than us, weren’t you? Thank you for making everyone's clothes for StarFes. I'm glad you made it in time.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Thank ya muchly fer helpin' us then too ♪ It's 'cause all of ya were deliverin' the clothes for us that we finished 'em~

Oshi-san's clothes are the best, so I'd hate it if his reputation got tarnished just 'cause he missed a deadline.

So m'real happy we made in time. It's thanks to y'all's help.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Mm-mm, you're always helping us out, so I'm glad we could return the favor, even just a little ♪ Anytime you...

Fufu, I understand. You were worried over me for Nii-chan's sake, right?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

It's good ya understand that. Ya really scared me there, coughin' all of a sudden an' all.

Ya were really workin' yerself over one before, and it's gotten pretty chilly lately. It ain't strange to think ya health worsened, ya know? That's why I thought ya came down with somethin', Hajime-kun.

Seems like a lotta people in my class're down an' out with colds. There's a lot of coughin' goin' around too.

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Uh huh, I know what you mean~. It's the same way in my class too. There were a lot of people absent yesterday as well... You really need to pay attention to your health when it suddenly gets this cold, huh?

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

Ugh, brr~! Just talkin' about it bein' cold's makin' me cold~

Why don'tcha cut yer work short today, Hajime-kun? Ya've done more than enough cleanin'. If ya stay out any longer, ya really might catch a cold, ya know?

Hajime Shino School Dialogue Render

Like I said, I really am fine~. To be honest, I have heat pack stuck to my lower back, so I'm staying nice and warm. ♪

I’m not the type of person who can do something in half-measures either, especially not a part-time job. The rest is just clean-up anyway.

Mika Kagehira School Dialogue Render

I see... It ain’t good to half-ass this kinda thing, that’s fer sure.

Lesse... Oh, I know!

If yer that determined, how 'bout ya have somethin' to eat while ya do it~? Here, have a piece of candy. If ya eat that, maybe ya throat won't dry up so much?
