|Aah…… Speaking of which, 『Ou-sama』 and Itsuki are close, right?|
|We’re not close, we’re enemies. The two of us just never see eye to eye. However, his talent is real, so I don’t want to see him going down because of something trivial.
Well, Nazu said he’d figure something out, but that’s worrying in itself……
This isn’t something I really have to right to say, but there’s no point in constantly staying trapped in the past.
|Well, they do say that time heals all wounds, but this one’s rooted pretty deep, so it’s probably not going away for a while……
It’d be nice if their problem could be resolved - like how you came back here, 『Ou-sama』.
|Ah…… Could this be the reason why you had such an uneasy expression on your face, Onee-sama?
Since you’re in charge of producing 『Ra*bits』 and 『Valkyrie』 too.
That’s worrying. It’s not like knights are always allies of justice or anything, but……
We’re all classmates at Yumenosaki Academy. If anyone is troubled by something, we can’t just ignore it.
It’s Christmas after all; it’s the night where everyone deserves to be able to sleep peacefully.
If not, Santa Claus isn’t going to have any time to leave a present by your pillow.
|Suo~, don’t tell me you still believe in Santa Claus?|
|D-don’t treat me like a fool.
I’m not a child like Touri-kun is. He has some strangely innocent sides to him, and it seems that he still believes in Santa.
In the first place, my family has never been the type to indulge in events like this……
Every Christmas, I’ve always just attended a banquet for the sake of formally greeting my relatives.
|I see~ Well, we’ll live it up and have fun this year then.|
|Yep yep. Onee-chan-Santa will give you a gift filled with love since you’ve been so good this year, Tsukasa-chan ♪
Here - they were selling these cute diet goods at the store, you kno~w?
|Uuu, I appreciate the sentiment, but I’m not desperately in need of a diet, thank you very much!|
|But since you’re from a wealthy family, I figured you wouldn’t want anything too extravagant~
So instead, I got you something that you can use in your daily life ♪
|Ah, Nacchan and I were thinking the same thing.|
|Ritsu-senpai, don't tell me you got me goods for dieting too?! What kind of impression do you senpai even have of me?!|
|I’m just kidding…… I prepared accessories that I thought would match everyone.|
|Eh, ah? But isn’t this really expensive?|
|Stuff like this is easy to make on your own. And the materials were cheap thanks to my family connections.|
|Kasa-ku~n, here’s a knitted dinosaur stuffed animal from me ♪|
|Please don’t treat me like a child! Oh, isn’t this handmade as well?|
|Yep. I made a lot of different things for practice when I was knitting that scarf; I figured that there’s no point in me keeping them, so I decided to give them to everyone……
There’s a knitted hat and gloves here too.
|Wahaha☆ Sena’s the type to care a lot about celebrations like this~ You had these presents prepared from the very beginning, didn’t you?
What’re you going to give us, Suo~? Handmade massage coupons?
|I don’t know what you’re talking about - do you mean the coupons you can use at stores?
I thought it might be even more unfitting for me to gift something expensive…… So it took quite a lot of thinking, but in the end I decided to buy everyone neckties.
|A tie? Feels like it’s Father’s Day~ Thanks, I just happen to have a formal event coming up soon, so this is perfect.
Mhm, Suo~ you really are a good son ♪
|I am not your son. In the very least, call me your brother! Is it just me, or are all of you treating me like I’m younger than I actually am?|
|Don’t get so angry. We’re at a party, so don’t be too uptight ♪
Wahaha☆ My gift for everyone is a new song each ♪
|Fufu, I predicted Leader would give something like this.|
|Eh~ That’s not fun. Oh well, I guess it can’t be helped even if you predicted my gift, since this is the best present I could give to you.
I thought it’d be nice if you could physically hold onto it, so I made sure to neatly write it out on top quality score paper!
My writing’s normally all over the place when I compose, so keep in mind that this is really rare~ ♪
|Oh my~ Then I better keep this framed. I’m sure that in the future, it’ll sell for a really high price.|
|Use the score if you have it - even if my compositions are a work of art, if it’s just a piece of sheet music, you can reproduce it anwyay.
I made a Christmas song that we can all sing together as well~ Let’s go wild tonight ♪
Wahaha☆ Merry Christmas……!
|Geez - there’s no soundproofing in here, so if you get too carried away, we’re going to get complaints, you know?
Oh well, I guess I’m having fun too. I’m really so happy right now, ufufu ♪
This time last year, I would’ve never imagined myself having Christmas celebrations with everyone in 『Knights』 like this.
I wish 『Knights』 could’ve been peaceful and harmonious like this from the very beginning.
In spring, we could’ve gone cherry-blossom viewing, and in summer, we could’ve gone to the fireworks display ♪
And in fall, instead of getting into a huge fight among ourselves, we could’ve gone to see the leaves…… ♪
But I guess we can just go and see them together from now on.
Let us replace our monotonous past with our happiness now, our happiness that blooms flowers.
|Yep yep, everything’s only starting now! Let the storm of happiness rage on! Not that I have the right to say this, since I came back so late ♪
I’ll make up for all the times I was absent, so let’s head together into the sights we’ve only ever seen in our dreams!
Let us grow beautiful flowers over the blood and corpses that remain on our former battlefield…… ☆
Aah, I can feel a surge of inspiration rushing in!
|Please don’t start composing all of a sudden. This is the party you started; it’s the duty of a host to keep his guests entertained, right?
I know I’ve said this once already, but Onee-sama, please feel free to join us……
Spend a Christmas with us that’s so fun and peaceful, you won’t be able to forget it ♪
|Let’s get carried away, make a racket, and get drunk off this crazy atmosphere……. Just like normal, joyful commoners.
For some reason, even I think it’s foolish of me to be nagging the others tonight.
Though it is the peak of the winter season right now……let’s learn from our senpai in『Knights』 and fully enjoy the spring that is blooming in this room.
Merry Christmas…… ♪
