|Location: Sports Festival Grounds|
|The weather is great, so it’s a perfect day for a sports festival~♪|
|Ugh~......Why am I participating in the ball-toss? Someone as high-class as me will be crawling around on the ground diligently picking up balls, you know?
This is unbelievable! Nito-sempai, pick them up and throw them into the basket for me~
|Don’t casually order around your upperclassmen. Sheesh, you’re the same as ever, huh, Momo-chin......?
Besides, I’m on the red team. You do realize we’re on opposite sides, right?
|I- I know that. You’re on the red team with President. I don’t want to fight against President, though. Why wasn’t I put on the red team?
I’m glad Anzu’s on the white team with me, but still, I’d rather be on the red team. President, praise me~ *purrs* ♪
|Fufu, aren’t you pampered? I’m sad that I ended up on a different team from you, Tori, but I’m glad we were fortunate enough to have clear skies today for the sports festival......♪
That said, I haven’t been doing as well today as I’d like. Moreover, I’m outside and the sunlight is rather harsh. I’m feeling dizzy just from standing here like this.
|President, are you okay? If it gets too bad, let me know, okay? I’ll carry you over to the first-aid tent. Leave everything to me~☆|
|Thank you, Tori. I appreciate the offer, but I’d end up crushing my cute little Tori if I let you carry me.
I suppose I should sit this out to be on the safe side. ......I wanted to do something like a normal high schooler for once in a while, but I guess my karma has caught up with me.
I think I might have over-exerted myself a little during that live tour over summer break.
|You aren’t looking so good, so don’t push yourself, okay? Let’s tell Anzu and have her take you to the first-aid tent, alright? If you want, I’ll help you part of the way there.|
|If I really feel like I can’t keep going, I’ll take you up on that. However, I’ve really been looking forward to this day. If I retired early, that’d be my biggest regret.|
|Really? If you really want to do it that badly, I don’t think anyone’s going to stop you.
Well, it’s fine. Tenshouin, once the starting pistol goes off, pick up the balls around the net and toss them to your post, okay?
I don’t think you’d accidentally go tossing them over to the other team’s spot, but I’m warning you, just in case~♪
|No need to worry. I’ve got a firm grasp on the rules. While lazing around in bed at home, I read every last letter of the pamphlet, after all.
(Let’s explain for all the P-chans who don’t know though! Basically there’ll be a basket with a closed net so the balls/hackey-sacks won’t fall out, and you grab balls that are your team’s color and try to toss them into your basket. Whichever team has the most balls in their basket at the end of the time limit wins! ♪ Usually, the baskets are up sorta high, though, so you have to actually throw it cause it’s too high to slam dunk ‘em in or anything.)
|Tenshouin, you must’ve really been looking forward to the sports festival, huh......
Whoa! The ball-toss started while we were chatting away! Hurry, hurry~!
There, and there......♪
Fufun, I snagged a whole ton of balls. This many should be plenty, so I’ll turn to the basket and start throwing them with all my strength~☆
......Unya!? W-Wh-What!? Someone directly hit the basket with a ball they threw and now it looks like it’s gonna fall?
T- This is bad! If I don’t hurry and support the basket, all the balls in it will get spilled out onto the ground!
(That’s...... Subaru-chin? Koga-chin’s with him too. It looks like they went to support the basket and got it straightened out.)
(Seems like we somehow dodged a bullet. That’s a relief......♪)
(Still, just how hard did someone throw that ball to almost knock over a basket? They must be super strong.)
(If they threw it point blank from too close to the basket, I guess it wouldn’t be that hard......?)
|(Just to be safe, I’d better throw them from a little further back. Hm~ About here should be good, right?)
Allllright, take that~......☆
(Close, but not quite! The ball hit the basket, though.)
(We won’t get points if I don’t get them in the basket, so I’ll move a little closer. I’ll get a ball in there this time for sure~♪)
......Whoa!? T-Thad hid me in the faze? Who did thad~!?
|Whoa, Nito-senpai, you’re messing up everything you say, you know~? I have no clue what you said, but can you stand? I’ll lend you a hand~☆|
|Thangs~ ......Nnn, it’s your fault for throwing a ball at me in the first place~ That really startled me, okay!?|
|Uuu, don’t yell at me. I’m sorry~ I didn’t throw it at you on purpose.
I was facing the basket like I’m supposed to, but for some reason it hit you instead, Nito-senpai......
I really wasn’t trying to do anything mean, okay? It wasn’t on purpose, forgive me~ Please!
|I...... I’m sorry too, I shouldn’t have raised my voice. I know you’re not the kind of kid who’d deliberately hurt someone. Good boy, good boy~♪|
|The only ones allowed to pet my head are President and Anzu~ Jeez, I’ll make an exception for you just this once, okay?
Nito-senpai, I’ll help you pick up the balls you dropped. I’m on the white team, so people might think I’m helping the red team, but...
It’s my fault you dropped them. Umm~m, I think this is all of them. Can you check if that’s the right amount?
|One~ Two~ ......Yup, this is exactly how many I had. That was a big help, Momo-chin. Thanks~♪|
|If you thank me, it makes it seem like I did something good, though, doesn’t it? S- See you later!|
|Ahaha. Momo-chin’s not very honest with himself, is he~? ♪
Alright. From the looks of it, the white team is in the lead, so let’s make a comeback~ Let’s go......♪
