Sports Festival 2 - Chapter 6
Location: Sports Festival Grounds
(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Yuu-ku~n! Today’s the sports festival! I hardly got paired with you at all during the practices, so I’ve been lonely~ Yuu-kun......!
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Hey, wait! Don’t rub your cheek on mine! If you’re too pushy, I really will start to hate you, okay?
(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
I know, I know. You don’t like it when I’m clingy.

That said, I was measuring how close I can get to see how much you’ll let slide.

I thought rubbing our cheeks together would be within the realm of acceptable skinship, but you didn’t like it. Will you at least let me hold your hand, Yuu-kun?

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
No. That’s gross. If people saw us two guys holding hands, they’d do a double take and assume something was up.
(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Th- Then, how about putting my arm around your shoulder!?
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
That would put us even closer, though!? I’d get it if this was the three-legged race, but there’s no reason to put your arm on my shoulder in the borrowing race......

Speaking of the three-legged race, Anzu-chan will be competing, huh?

I- I wish I’d been in the running to be her partner~ Though I guess it doesn’t help to tell you that, Izumi-san.

I should be saying this kind of stuff to Anzu-chan herself......♪

(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
............
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
W- Why are you glaring off into space? You have a pretty face, so it makes a strong impression when you glare like that and it’s kinda scary......
(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Huh? You just praised me!? Hey, say what you just said again!

Tell me, “Izumi-san is so pretty and cool, I’m proud to have him as my big brotherrrrr”......☆

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
I didn’t say that! I didn’t say that much!

Anyways, save that conversation for later! The borrowing race is going to start, so focus on that, okay?

(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Okay, you’re feeling bashful now, I get it. You’re cute when you’re embarrassed too, Yuu-kun......☆
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
T- This is impossible. No matter what I say to Izumi-san now, he’ll just twist it to sound positive. He seems ecstatic, so I think it’d probably be a good idea not to talk to him......?
(Cheer in the Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render
............
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Umm, Ritsu-kun? You haven’t moved a muscle this whole time. Are you just focusing?
(Cheer in the Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render
Uu~...... It’s so hot~...... I can’t do this~...... I’m gonna drop dead~......
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
A- Are you okay? If you aren’t feeling well, you should rest in the first aid tent...... Oh, do you want a sports drink?

I have one in my bag. I’ll run and grab it ♪

(Cheer in the Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render
Rather than getting a drink...... I’d prefer if you’d take me somewhere shady...... I want to take a nap somewhere nice and cool......♪

Besides, I thought I said some nasty stuff to you before, Yuu-kun. Normally, you wouldn’t go trying to approach someone like that, you know.

And yet, here you are striking up a conversation as though you’ve forgotten it all. You have nerves of steel, although you don’t look like it...... Maybe?

(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Hey, Kuma-kun. Who gave you permission to call “Yuu-kun” that? The only one allowed to call Yuu-kun “Yuu-kun” is me.

Also, were you bullying Yuu-kun while I wasn’t around? And you, too, Yuu-kun. Why didn’t you tell your big brother that someone was bullying you?

Don’t worry, though! Your big bro will get rid of anyone who bullies you, Yuu-kun!

Did anyone else bully you? Those guys in Trickstar aren’t bullying you, are they?

You’re such a strong and patient kid, Yuu-kun, so I worry about you. Your poor brother won’t be at ease without knowing about all of your relationships!

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Ah, your love is too clingy...... This is why I didn’t tell you, Izumi-san. I had an idea that it would probably end up like this if I did......

Still, you got angry on my behalf about Ritsu-kun bullying me, which is something I should thank you for, but...

I don’t think what Ritsu-kun said to me was bullying. If anything, he was kind enough to give me a warning, asking if it was okay if I kept running away.

If it hadn’t been for that, I might not have been able to face you, Izumi-san. ......Although, I still don’t completely understand you.

(Cheer in the Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render
No matter how close you may be, it’s not like you can understand everything about another person.

Even relatives are like that, so just think of how it is with strangers. Having just a slight difference in opinions will drive a wedge through the relationship.

Even though we’re family, Ma~kun and I had a period like that. Will it end here? Will we pull through? Well, Ma~kun and I managed to get past it, but...

What will happen with you two......?

I know now that you aren’t deliberately trying to hurt Secchan, but I can’t tell whether you two are making any progress or not, you know?

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Ahaha, I wish Izumi-san would stop being like an overprotective mothe— Or, actually, like an overprotective brother, though.
(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
Y- Yuu-kun...... You think of me as your big brother, huh, Yuu-kun!

I’m so happy and grateful, I’m going to cryyyy......☆

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Don’t cling to me! You’re going to stretch out my pe clothes!
(Cheer in the Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render
Hm~...... Is that Anzu over in the first-aid tent? It looks like she’s waving.
(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
Oh, you’re right. Anzu-chan said she ended up as Sagami-sensei’s helper, so that must be why she’s in the first-aid tent.

Come to think of it, wasn’t that the direction you were glaring, Izumi-san......? Huh? Did you notice she was there?

(Trial's Fate) Izumi Sena Full Render
It’s the same as looking for you, Yuu-kun. You just have to look for people where they’re likely to be.

Although I hardly have to look for Anzu and still find her right away.

(Glasses Prediction) Makoto Yuuki Full Render
What the heck, that’s creepy...... A- Anyways, I’ll wave back to her......

Anzu-cha~n, I’ll do my best, so cheer for me ♪
