Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Hmm, hmm, hmmm ♪

The tables and chairs have mostly been polished. Next, I shall put the Young Master’s clothes away.

This time, when I brought the Young Master’s clothes to be cleaned, I took particular care to select special laundry supplies that will keep the clothes fresh a long time after drying.

Alright, I’ll place them here. Once the Young Master puts on these clothes, he’ll certainly be very happy, I just can’t wait to see it~

Young Master, I have placed the clothes that you want to wear next time inside the cabinet over there~

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

……

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Young Master, Young Master…

Hmm? Why won’t the Young Master respond to me?

Ah, it seems that the Young Master is currently reading a book…

Please allow me to disturb you for a moment, I have placed your clothes inside this cabinet, so if you would like to change them…

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

I knoow, I knooow, don’t bother me when I’m reading~

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Hmm, that the Young Master can so earnestly read a book, I am very happy~

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

I’m just studying for the Himemiya household, that’s all. It’s a manga about a lot of different places of work, so it’s also a story about the world of grownups~

When Mommy and Daddy aren’t at home, I have to act as a representative of the family. So, in the future, having this knowledge might help me out in similar situations~

But then again, the story itself is also really great, I really hadn’t expected that the society of a workplace would have so many rules, it really opened my eyes ♪

Once I’m finished reading it, I can give it to you so you can have a look too.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Seeing you studying so earnestly, I was truly moved, but to think that you were actually using manga…

Please wait a moment, Young Master. You did say that you were using manga to study, correct?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Yeah, it’s manga… What’s wrong, Yuzuru? Your expression just turned really severe…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Please allow me to voice my own opinion for a moment.

The aspects that you have taken an interest in within this manga; there are other things dealing with this subject matter that would be of more benefit to you to read.

I am going to find some books for you, please wait a moment.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

(Judging by Yuzuru’s face just now, it seems like he’s not too happy about me reading manga, but this one really is super interesting…)

(To make sure that when Yuzuru doesn’t throw away the manga when he returns, I’ll put it away before he gets back, and wait until he’s gone to continue reading it.)

(Rule Maker) Yuzuru Fushimi CG
Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Ah, Young Master, my apologies for making you wait for so long. I have returned.

I have found some wonderful books for you. They’re all great literary classics and such. These books will definitely be of more benefit to you than reading manga.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Wow, what a tall pile of books…Where did you find these, Yuzuru?

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

I took them from the library in this house. Please allow me to introduce them to you one by one, Young Master.

This is a compilation of Shakespeare’s four great tragedies. It includes ‘King Lear’, ‘Macbeth’, ‘Hamlet’, and ‘Othello.’ The stories that they each tell are…

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hold on a second, Yuzuru. Did you say they were tragedies?

Won’t reading that make me cry my eyes out? Why don’t you choose a different book, Yuzuru~

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

It’s not quite the kind of tragedy that the Young Master is thinking of. But since the Young Master has asked me to choose another book, then I shall choose another book.

Here we have ‘White Fang’ and ‘The Call of The Wild’, which tell the stories of a wolf becoming a dog, and a dog becoming a wolf.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Oh? These ones seem really interesting. I’ll read those ones first, then.

I’ll also read the other ones you have there, so you can go ahead with your work, Yuzuru.

Also, I feel like having the stories introduced to me is kinda like having the plot spoiled for me, so then reading those books will be boring. So let me read them one by one.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Well, I hope that you will enjoy the books that I have recommended. I hope they will not only be interesting, but also will be of a lot of help to you.

Now then. I must go and buy some items for daily use, so please excuse me. If you need anything, you can contact me by phone.

Well, see you later, Young Master~

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Phew, Yuzuru is finally gone. I’ll finish reading the manga before I move onto the books.

After all, if you only read half of a story before giving up, you won’t feel satisfied, right~

Location: Shopping District
Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Oh? This grocery store has received a new batch of cleaning supplies. The ones at home have become a little outdated, so I’ll purchase some new ones.

Excuse me sir, could you please help me have a look at this broom? Yes, that one.

Well, this one is very easy to use, I'll take one of these.

I’d also like to buy some of this detergent, and this cleaning rag. Please help me to pack them up.

Hmm? You say that I must be a very tidy kid who likes to clean? Could you see that from the items that I have selected?

Ahaha, you really do have sharp eyes. It’s just as you say, I do indeed enjoy cleaning.

Hmm? A new batch of stationary has arrived in-store, and you think I should have a look?

Alright, then I shall accept your advice, and take a look.

All this stationary is quite good, I could buy some pens and notebooks for the Young Master. After all, the Young Master often uses these when he is studying.

Now, let me choose some… Hmm, this stationary set is the same colour as the Young Master’s hair, and this one is the same colour as mine. Moreover, the quality of these two sets seems rather nice. I’ll buy these two, then.

Phew~ That was quite an abundant haul. I wonder what kind of reaction the Young Master will have when I give him this stationary set? I’m really looking forward to it ♪

Wah! How dangerous, I almost fell over!

This is a… turnip? Who dropped a turnip here?

It seems as though the person in front of me is holding a basket of vegetables. Would it be him that dropped it?

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

I’m so depressed, I want to die…

I just wanted to sit down and rest for a bit, but I was sent out to deliver vegetables to a customer…

Eh? Who’s tapping my shoulder?

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Umm... hello. May I ask, did you drop this turnip?

Huh? Ah, it’s you, Takamine-sama. Good morning.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

M-Master Artist… Hello. Did... did you come here to give me a turnip?

Ah! I’m really missing one turnip! Th- Thank you, Master Artist!

Ah, um, well, if there’s nothing else then I’ll be going! Goodbye, Master Artist!

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

He ran away so quickly. What’s the matter with Takamine-sama today, I wonder.

Such a shy and flustered expression... I can’t help but to feel a little worried.

Seeing him carry that many vegetables, is he really alright? Perhaps I ought to have helped him more.

Hmm? It seems as though I’ve heard Anzu’s voice. Hello, Anzu. Are you also here shopping?

Right, I’m the same as you, I came here to buy some things. You say that you just saw me staring blankly in one direction, and became curious?

Haha, I just saw Takamine-sama. Takamine-sama was carrying a basket of vegetables and ran away in a panic, so I was a little bit concerned.

Before coming here, you ran into Takamine-sama in the vegetable shop? He was on his way to deliver some vegetables to customers?

You say that one time in the past Takamine-sama was in low spirits, and when you inquired he told you he was thinking about the future?

He said that if he doesn’t become an idol, he can probably only inherit his family’s vegetable shop, and live an ordinary life? Is that so?

Well then, it’s no wonder that his face was so troubled. But why did he run away in such a panic?

You think that he likely didn’t want me to see his gloomy appearance, so he ran away, right?

You admire the relationship between us? Well, I’m not quite sure how to respond to that; however, you’ve truly helped me a great deal. Thank you for telling me about this situation.

The next time that I encounter Takamine-sama, I’ll try to cheer him up a little bit.

Ahaha, you’ve also cheered me up. Thank you Anzu.

Hmm? You want to give me a hand to carry the items that I’ve bought? Thank you, Anzu, but I must carry these myself.

You’ve also bought some things, I don’t want to bother you by making you carry more. Also, I’m planning to browse a little bit more before heading home.

Anzu, have you finished your shopping yet?

Oh, you’re already done? Then please excuse me, I must quickly finish my shopping, and then return to attend to the Young Master’s studies~

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

I’ve purchased almost everything that I needed. Before returning, I’ll ask the Young Master if there is anything else that he needs.

Eh? I have a missed call? Let me take a look…

It’s from the Young Master! To have missed his call is truly lacking in manners!

Nobody answered when I called him again… Could it be that the Young Master is angry with me...?

If it’s the latter situation, then that’s acceptable, but if the Young Master went out, ran into a thug, and tried to call upon me for help, then I can never forgive myself!

Young Master, I shall return home at once, so please be alright.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Uwah!

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Excuse me for suddenly bumping into you, I’m currently in a bit of a hurry, please forgive me…

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Master Artist? What’s the matter? You look really flustered…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Ah, it’s Takamine-sama, I’m terribly sorry for bumping into you.

I suddenly couldn’t contact the Young Master, so I’m currently very worried for him, and I’m rushing back home.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Himemiya, right? I saw him passing by, he should be heading towards the school…

He said that when he was on the phone…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Oh? May I ask, at what time did you see him?

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

It was around ten minutes ago, I’m not too sure of the exact time…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Ten minutes ago? I see.

That’s almost the same time as when I called the Young Master, so the reason why I couldn’t contact him was because he was already calling somebody else at that time.

Phew, I can breathe a sigh of relief.

Takamine-sama, please forgive my momentary loss of control. I was truly too worried about the Young Master.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Phew, well if there’s nothing else, then I’ll be going…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Please wait a moment, Takamine-sama.

In order to thank you for telling me such important information, please come into the house and sit down. I will prepare some tea for you as a sign of gratitude.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

I, I can’t, I still have a delivery for another customer, so…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

That’s quite alright, Takamine-sama. However, please don’t leave in such a hurry, I have something that I would like to say to you.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Hmm? Master Artist has something to say to me?

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

I heard from Anzu that because you’ve been thinking about the future, you’ve been feeling quite melancholy, is that right?

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Oh… it seems like Master Artist already knows. Originally, I didn’t want you to know about that side of me, so I ran away in a hurry…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Everyone will have fears and worried concerning the future, so I can understand Takamine-sama’s situation. But we can’t decide on things too far into the future.

What we can do, though, is work hard towards the future that we want.

As long as we work hard enough, the future that we’re hoping for will gradually grow closer and closer, so please keep your chin up, Takamine-sama.

Moreover, please don’t talk about ‘not becoming an idol’, and the such. I believe that you will grown into an outstanding idol, Takamine-sama.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

The Master Artist really feels that way? Then I’ll look up a little, thanks for your encouragement.

There really is no point in just thinking too much about the future, I also need to work hard…Then I’ll give the Master Artist’s idea a go. I’ll keep my feet on the ground and work hard. I’ll start with delivering these vegetables, and deliver them with a smile…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Well, I’m really happy to see that you’ve reinvigorated your spirits~

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Now then, Master Artist, please draw me a picture.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Alright, In order to encourage Takamine-sama.

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

This will be the first drawing in the Master Artist’s new stationary set, so I will definitely cherish it, thank you.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Finished. For you, Takamine-sama~

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

As always, every time the Master Artist draws something new, it’s really great. I’ll be on my way now, bye-bye ♪

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Please continue to do your best, Takamine-sama.

(Since the Young Master is gone to school, then I shall quickly gather my things and join him there.)

Workplace Survival Rules Chapter 4
Location: Student Council Room
Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Phew~

As I’d expected, at this time, there’s a lot of things going on at the school...

There’s existing work that needs to be finished, and there’s also upcoming work that need to be started on. I’ve been busy all day, but there’s been some progress.

I’ve already dealt with half of this file. It seems like I’ll be able to finish with the entire thing on my day off.

But to be honest, this is really tiring. I’d better take a small break…

Eh? That feels good, who’s massaging my shoulders?

Oh, it’s you, Himemiya. What are you doing here?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hmmhmm, didn’t I give you a phone call earlier, Vice President?

When I found out that you were still here in the Student Council, I quickly came over. I was a little bit worried.

I was imagining that if the Vice President saw all this work, the more of it that you’d complete, the happier you’d get, until you wouldn’t be able to control yourself anymore.

It’s not good to wear down your body like that, you know.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

What have I done up until this point, for you to have that kind of impression of me…

But let’s not talk about that right now. I’m astonished that you actually took the initiative to rub somebody else’s shoulders.

If it was Fushimi, I’d understand a little bit more. Also, you two didn’t come together today; what happened?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hmmhmm, super surprising, right? You feel full of energy again, don’t you?

That surprise came from something that I saw in a manga earlier. There was a scene in it where a boss gave his subordinate a shoulder rub. After that, the subordinate was deeply moved, and full of energy ♪

Just now, I saw that Vice President was resting his eyes, and so I thought ‘If it were me, and a future Student Council President came and gave me a shoulder massage, wouldn’t it have the same effect?’ So I decided to give it a go.

Also, nothing happened with me and Yuzuru; he just went out to buy some stuff, so I came by myself.

Although, that guy had the audacity not to pick up my phone call, so that made me really mad. But I left a note for him at home, telling him that I went to the Student Council.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

I really want to tell you not to act out plots that you see in manga in real life, but it’s good that you could be this considerate of other people.

Alright, alright, thank you. You don’t need to keep rubbing my shoulders, I’ve rested enough now that I can continue working.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Then why don’t you give me some to do as well, Vice President?

I’m also a member of the Student Council, I can’t just let the Vice President work hard all by himself.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Thanks, Himemiya. I’ll allocate some work for you to do.

Ok, you should be able to do this, but you might still have some problems. If there’s anything you find difficult, feel free to ask me.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Ok, just leave it to me, Vice President.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

(You should still have a lot of room for growth. Even though Eichi and I are going to graduate soon, the extent to which you’ll mature is still quite exciting.)

(Let me witness it with my own eyes in the days to come.)

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Eh? Vice President, why are you staring at me?

Do you still want me to rub your shoulders? Or are you worried that I’m not doing this work well?

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

No, I just suddenly thought of something. This year might be a year worth looking forward to.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

(The Vice President’s facial expression is kind of weird… But nevermind, first I’ll look at this document.)

Vice President, there’s something I don’t understand here, can you help me~?

After Some Time
Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Yay! Finally finished~

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Thanks to you, Himemiya, we were able to finish the whole thing this quickly.

Although when you first started out, you were slow, but you eventually became more skilled, and even processed it really fast.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Hmmhmmhmm, that’s just natural, these things are no match for me.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Seeing that it’s still fairly early, do you want to inspect the campus grounds? We can check and see if there’s any security concerns, and such.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Alright, we were just working for so long, my whole body is really stiff. Going for a walk would be nice ♪

Oh yeah, I just remembered. Please don’t tell Yuzuru about what we talked about when we were working, the thing about the manga.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

(Puts on a scarf) Oh, you mean about how after Fushimi left, you took that manga back out to read?

Okay, I’ll keep it a secret for you.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Oh? It looks like this is broken. Have a look, Vice President.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Well, it really does need to be changed. Let’s record it in the file first.

This here also needs to be noted. Though it looks like there’s no big problem, it’s still somewhat unsafe.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

It’s really amazing to find all this stuff in such a hidden place.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Any possibility of an accident isn’t good, after all. So we still have to carefully observe and record everything. We can’t be negligent.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Ok, does this need to be recorded as well?

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Let me see. This is a bit better than the last situation, so it can still be used for a little longer. Checking it regularly should be alright for now.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Ayah, there really are so many different ways to deal with these kinds of things. I’ve definitely learned something today.

Eh? That sounds like a bird chirping. It seems like it’s a baby bird. But the sound isn’t coming from a tree, it’s coming from the ground.

Ya~ I found it! What a tiny little bird, I almost stepped on it. It really is just a nestling.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Hmm? What’s going on?

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Oh, Vice President come and have a look, I found a baby bird~

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Let me see… That really seems to be a nestling, it hasn’t even learned how to fly yet.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

So small and cute, it makes me want to cradle it and pet it.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

It’s best if you don’t do that, Himemiya. Because there’s a theory that says once a chick is touched by a human, it’ll pick up the scent of that person, and then the mother bird won’t recognize the chick.

Although that theory isn’t completely trustworthy. But just in case, it’s best not to touch it.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Oh, I see… that’s scary… Little birdie, what are you doing down here on the ground? Where’s your mama?

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

I think it must have fallen from that tree there, look above its head.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Eh? There really is a bird’s nest in that tree; it seems like the chick really did fall down from there.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Young Master, Vice President-sama, hello~

I just went to the Student Council room and found out that you weren’t there, so I came outside to find you two.

Also, Young Master, I truly apologize for missing your call. I missed it because at that time I was still inside the store, where it was too noisy.

I hope that you can forgive me.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

You’re so loud, Yuzuru! You scared the little bird!

Put aside whatever you’re apologizing for. The most important thing at the moment is how we’re going to put this bird back in the nest!

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Hmm? May I ask what the matter is?

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Fushimi, here’s the situation…

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

I see. But please, Young Master and Vice President-sama, do not worry too much. I shall go and retrieve a ladder, so please wait for me for a moment.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Fushimi left so quickly. You don’t often see him hurrying like that. He’s probably like this because he saw how anxious Himemiya is.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Really? I didn’t notice it, but seeing him going to fetch that ladder with so much energy, I can even forgive him for not picking up my call.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

My apologies for making you wait so long. I have brought the ladder, may I inquire as to what I should do next?

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

I was just thinking about that too.

Just now, the little bird fell onto a pile of dead leaves. So, that way we can use our hands to the bird up with the pile of leaves, and put it back in the nest.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Okay, okay, let me let me~

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Maybe I should do it instead.

Even though Himemiya is very excited about this, if you’re too worked up and touch the body of the bird with your hand, that wouldn’t be good.

Also, if you climb up the ladder, I think Fushimi would be very anxious.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Okay. Well then Vice President, please make sure you put the little bird back safely.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

First of all, I need to very carefully… pick it up like this.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Wow, amazing, his palms aren’t touching the bird at all.

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Now, I’ll bring you back to your home.

(Business Project Executor) Keito Hasumi CG
Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Since you’re still just a little nestling, with so much to learn and practice, you still need to be taken care of like this… But you’ll definitely grow into a free bird that can fly with your own strength.

Winter makes things die and wither away, springtime follows and brings new life. It seems like this spring will really be a season worth looking forward to.

Keep doing your best, little bird.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

(Vice President has an unusual look on his face. I never expected that he’d have this side to him.)

(Could it be because his family comes from a temple, so when he sees creatures like this, he has this kind of expression?)

Keito Hasumi School Dialogue Render

Okay, I put the bird back. Now let’s go and bring the ladder back.

Yuzuru Fushimi School Dialogue Render

Alright, if it’s the ladder, please allow me to move it.

Tori Himemiya School Dialogue Render

Okay, bye-bye little birdie. Be a little more well-behaved, don’t cause more trouble for your mom~

Also, you should learn to fly soon, so that you won’t be afraid of falling down anymore.
