This passing world is full of perverts

Part 1:

After the pool cleaning operation ended, Keiki and the members of the student council all changed into their uniforms, and they were now on their way to a nearby hamburger restaurant for an afterparty. The seat distribution was the same as when they had eaten at the family restaurant earlier, with several set menus on top of the table. Keiki’s gaze, however, wasn’t directed at the delicious looking lunch, but rather at the pervert sitting across the table.

“…I didn’t expect that Mitani was a crossdressing pervert…”

“Ehhh? Calling me a pervert is taking it too far, though! If you were as cute as me, it’d be a waste to not wear any girl clothes! That’d be just a waste!”

“On top of your crossdressing hobby, you’re also quite the narcissist, I see!”

Mitani Rin was actually a boy who wears girls’ clothing. Not a girl but a boy. Not Rin-chan, but Rin-kun. After finding out about that, Keiki had started calling him Mitani instead of Mitani-san, too.

“To think that a beauty like you, who looks so good in a skirt, is actually a boy… I still can’t believe it…”

“Then would you like to check one more time?”


“No, I’ll pass on that…”

Without a doubt, the proof that Rin was a man was dangling between his legs. Being forced to feel that again would be nothing short of punishment for Keiki.

“That explains why you were the only one not wearing a school swimsuit.”

“It’d be a bit tight, after all. Though I won’t say where.”

“No, it’s as plain as day what you’re talking about, anyway… And this also explains Nagase-san’s cold gaze towards you.”

When he glanced at Airi, who was about to stuff french fries into her mouth, she complained.

“That’s right. I have no intentions of being kind to a boy, even if he looks like a girl.”

“If you knew already, why didn’t you just tell me?”

“Because it was fun watching you. I was getting excited waiting for you to finally realize it.”

“Seriously?!”

“Fufu, are you disappointed now that you’ve found out your cute Kouhai is actually a boy?”

No matter how much Keiki wanted to be angry at her, that smile of hers was too cute, and he couldn’t muster up the strength.

“Takasaki-senpai and Fujimoto-san, too. Why didn’t you just tell me?”

“Keeping quiet was way more fun.”

“Agreed.”

“You people…!”

These were the kind of sickos who would enjoy deceiving other people.

“But, Fujimoto-san, didn’t you tell me that ‘The secretary is also a girl’ back then?”

Before the final exams for the first term, he could faintly recall having a conversation like that.

“Back then, the secretary was a third-year girl. She had to stop her student council work because of entrance exams, so we scouted Mitani-san.”

“So that’s why…”

Thinking about it, Rin and Airi were both first-years. They couldn’t have been members for that long.

“Though I was the one who invited Rin-chan over to the student council. I was really surprised when he told me about his condition for him to join, namely that he wanted to wear the girls uniform.”

“So that kind of deal went down…”

It seemed like Rin had started wearing the girls uniform after getting permission from Shiho.

“Ah? But Mitani, does that mean that you don’t always wear the female uniform?”

“Yes, I do wear my normal male uniform when I’m in class. I just change into it when classes end. When I wear the female uniform during work, my efficiency goes up, you see.”

“How did you even get your hands on a girl’s uniform?”

“A cousin of mine graduated from this school, and I got it as a hand-me-down.”

And that cousin didn’t think twice about handing that uniform over to a boy?

“Do the others not have any reservations about Mitani wearing a skirt?”

“We’re used to it at this point, and it’d only feel weird if he wore something else now.”

“At times, I even forget that he’s a boy.”

“Well, I can accept him like this more than if he were wearing a boys uniform.”

Shiho, Ayano, and even Airi gave their opinions on the present matter. Apparently, they didn’t see any problems with him wearing the girl’s uniform. But there was one thing that still made Keiki feel uncomfortable.

“Mitani… I have a question for you, and I would like you to honestly answer me.”

“…? What is it?”

“Mitani—you don’t actually like boys, do you?”

“I’m sorry to disappoint, but rather than a boy’s chest, I’d always welcome a good pair of girls breasts.”

“Safeeeee!!!”

Though Rin was a crossdresser, his target gender was still the same as Keiki’s. Still, considering that he was a boy who looked like a beauty, Keiki was glad that this didn’t turn into a development that a certain fujoshi would enjoy.

“Ahh, this all sounds like a pain, so I’ll just call you ‘Rinko’ when you’re wearing girls clothes, and ‘Rintarou’ when it’s the male you.”

“Ah, that actually makes us sound pretty close! I like it!”

“I’m not the slightest bit happy about that… And why did I get excited all these times even though you were a boy…?”

His heart skipping a beat after seeing a boy’s belly, getting his hopes up after almost seeing a boy’s panties, getting bright red when seeing a boy in the changing room…

“Uwaah…”

Though he didn’t know about it back then, the very fact that he had become excited because of a boy made him want to die. And while Keiki slowly collapsed into despair, Shiho raised her voice, seeming to have remembered something.

“Oh, right, student council work will be on short break after next week starts.”

“Eh, why?”

“Yeah. After Wednesday, midterms are going to start, after all.”

“Midterms… you say?”

“Judging from that reaction, you probably forgot about them?”

“N-No way, t-t-t-that’s totally not what’s happening here.”

“Your voice is totally shaking, though.”

Since he had been so busy with student council work, he had completely forgotten about them. Of course, this meant that he hadn’t once studied for the tests.

“If you’re worried about it, then how about you have Ayano-chan help out with your studies?”

“Have Fujimoto-san help me?”

When he looked over to the girl sitting next to him, he found her putting one hand on her chest as she returned his gaze with a smile.

“If you’re fine with me, then I’ll help you.”

“Please do!”

Vice president Fujimoto Ayano was known as an honour student. With that in mind, she would surely be of great help.

Part 2:

The Monday of the following week, Keiki and Ayano were together in the library.

“Then let’s start our studies now.”

“I’ll be in your care.”

“Make sure to call me Ayano-sensei during our studies.”

“Yes, Ayano-sensei!”

Sitting next to the honour-student-turned-honour-teacher, Keiki enthusiastically opened up his math workbook and progressed with his studies according to Ayano-sensei’s advice. With a distance between them close enough for their shoulders to touch at any second, Ayano’s cheeks softened.

“…It almost feels like we’re lovers when we’re like this.”

“Mmm? Did you say something?”

“Nope, nothing at all.”

Seeing her smile, Keiki just responded, “Fujimoto-san really likes teaching other people, huh,” as dense as always. However—

While they were enjoying their time together like this, several people were peeking at them from the shadow of a bookshelf.

“…Recently, it feels like Keiki-senpai and Ayano-senpai have gotten a bit too close, right?”

“That’s what I was thinking, too.”

“No matter how close they are because of their student council work, this amount is clearly unreasonable.”

“Very suspicious.”

The people exchanging short statements were Yuika, Mizuha, Mao, and Sayuki. Or, in short, the female members of the calligraphy club.

“Recently, Nii-san has been busy with his student council work. Thanks to that, his grades seemed to have dropped, and that’s why he asked Fujimoto-san for help.”

“But would you go this far because of such a reason?”

“Very suspicious.”

“Witch-senpai, can you say anything else other than that?”

But Keiki’s and Ayano’s sudden growth and familiarity was indeed a bit suspicious.

“Yuika definitely thinks that Fujimoto-senpai has some sort of ulterior motive.”

“Do you think so?”

“Would you really help a boy you don’t have any feelings for, Mizuha-senpai?”

“Hmm… Probably not, no.”

“That’s what Yuika is talking about.”

Basically, Yuika wanted to bring up the possibility that Fujimoto Ayano was trying to seduce Kiryuu Keiki.

“Well, even if that is the case, things won’t go south even if we leave them alone. Once I pay back the debt, Keiki-kun will come back to the calligraphy club anyway.”

“Are you sure about that?”

“…? What do you mean?”

“If Keiki-senpai were to get even closer to Fujimoto-senpai, he might decide to stay in the student council even if you pay back the debt.”

“Eh…?”

Yuika’s hypothesis made Sayuki gulp in shock.

“B-But, Keiki-kun is a calligraphy club member first and foremost, right?”

“He’s nothing more than a ghost member. There’s nothing that would keep him from leaving the calligraphy club.”

“That’s…”

That was completely true. If Keiki chose the student council, neither Sayuki nor anybody else from the club had any power to stop him.

“That’s why we have to prevent that from happening at all costs!”

“This is our revenge for the bunny girl time.”

“I agree. We can’t let the student council have their way with Kiryuu.”

While three of the girls steeled their resolve,

“…I’ll pass on that.”

Sayuki didn’t join in, and instead walked away from that place.

“What’s wrong with Witch-senpai?”

“Normally, she’d be the first one to join in.”

“Maybe she’s just busy with her part-time job?”

The three tried to figure out why the club president gave up on their plan.

“Well, it doesn’t matter. Even without Witch-senpai, Yuika and the others will just take Kiryuu-senpai back themselves!”

““Yeah!””

Steeling their pride as girls, they vowed to not let this dense protagonist be taken by the student council.

Part 3:

The following day after classes, inside the 2B classroom after most of their classmates had left, Mao was nervously clicking her pen. She was currently working on a new doujinshi storyboard.

“Hmm… It feels like I’m getting stuck a lot recently…”

It was like she had seen this development before, or like the existing characters couldn’t move the story forward by themselves. She was contemplating adding a new character to bring in a fresh viewpoint.

“But setting that aside for now, I managed to draw this part here pretty good… Ufufu… Ufufufufu…”

“Can you not laugh like that in public places?”

“Who?! …Ah, Kiryuu.”

“It’s good that you’re enthusiastic about your work, but make sure that the guys from class don’t find out.”

“I know.”

She shouldn’t forget about her surroundings, even if she was focusing on her work. Keiki didn’t even want to imagine what would happen if the school found out about her BL manga.

“So why did you call me here today?”

“Ahh, that’s…”

To call Keiki over here was of course a part of the ‘Recapture Keiki Operation’. They had to avert the worst-case scenario of having Keiki taken away by the student council at all costs. For her source material—of course, that was nothing more than a reason that she was using in front of her rivals. She just didn’t want Keiki to get swarmed by any more girls.

“I thought that I really needed to give my thanks to Kiryuu.”

“For what?”

“You helped me out when I was creating my shoujo manga storyboard, right? That’s why, as thanks, I’ll do anything you ask of me.”

“Then what if I asked you to immediately get rid of this accursed storyboard in front of you?”

“I’d have to decline… And nevermind that; you’re a boy, right? You have to have one or two perverted desires, right?!”

“Nanjou, what the hell are you saying?”

“L-Like I said… If Kiryuu is really adamant about it, I-I’ll even let you fondle my breasts, or something like that…!”

Mao knew that Keiki had a healthy interest in breasts.

I know I can’t win against the club prez or Mizuha, but I still am confident in my body!

A boy like Kiryuu shouldn’t be able to withstand this sweet invitation. Mao just had to get Keiki to promise that he’d definitely come back to the calligraphy club if he really were to cop a feel of them. However, it didn’t quite go as planned.

“Nanjou…”

“Y-Yes?!”

Keiki suddenly brought his body closer to hers.

“…Eh? Eh?”

Being overwhelmed by the sudden approach of her classmate, Mao had to take a step back, and was forced against the wall next to a window. Keiki’s arms quickly moved to close off her escape routes. It was what one would call a ‘kabe-don’.

“K-Kiryuu…? Y-You’re a bit close?”

Mao’s head started to get hot after being boxed in like this by the boy she liked.

Eh… A-Am I really going to get groped here?!

Though she had actually been hoping for this, having it turn into reality was quite different. After all, she had always thought to herself, “This guy doesn’t have the guts to do that sort of thing, anyway”. Honestly, Mao never expected him to be this aggressive. Partially afraid because he was so manly, partially happy that he was seeing her as a woman, countless feelings were bouncing around inside Mao’s head.

“Nanjou…”

“Y-Yesh?!”

“Don’t say something as careless as that in front of a boy. If he were to get the wrong idea, you’d have a lot of trouble coming your way, and Nanjou is cute anyway, so treasure yourself a bit more.”

“……”

After being told that by a straight-faced Keiki, Mao couldn’t say anything back. She had completely lost against this surprise attack. Her heart was beating like crazy, and she could only stare at the boy’s face.

“………Yes.”

Before she realized it, she gave him a slight nod in reply. Even she was shocked at how easy she actually was. Though she had planned to seduce him, it ended in failure, and she only fell even more for him.

“…Why is Mao-senpai the one who fell into temptation?”

“I-I totally didn’t!”

“It can’t be helped. Nii-san is really cool from time to time, after all.”

“I told you that you’ve got the wrong idea?!”

It was a few minutes after the failed operation. Inside a deserted classroom, the members of the ‘Recapture Keiki Operation’ were holding an aftermath meeting.

“Yuika and Witch-senpai are always trying to seduce Keiki-senpai, after all, so of course he wouldn’t be swayed by a seduction of this level.”

“And you couldn’t have told me that before I attempted it!”

Since Yuika and Mizuha had been peeking into the 2B classroom that whole time, they already knew exactly what happened.

“Also, by saying that he could fondle my breasts, wasn’t I totally being a female molester?! Uwaaaaa?!”

“There there, it must’ve been embarrassing.”

Seeing as Mao was falling into despair while reminiscing about that embarrassing event, Yuika started patting her on the head. As an aside, their target was still enthusiastically learning with Ayano as of right now. At this rate, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they did start going out with each other.

“It can’t be helped, then. Next will be Yuika’s turn.”

The next assaultant nominated herself as she got up from her chair.

“Just you watch. Yuika will punish this bad dog, and make him say ‘Please let me return to the calligraphy club!’”

Part 4:

Yuika’s plan was perfect. First, she would call her target to the storage room in the library. She had already thought of her excuse: She had suddenly been asked to sort some books and documents, and she needed help. Of course, the kind Keiki would immediately take the bait. All that was left then would be to tie him to a chair like the last time in that locked classroom. And the usage of a certain secret weapon would do the final trick. An eye mask that she had prepared just for this.

Humans gathered information through their five senses, and their sight made up for around 80% of that. If one were to rob them of their eyesight, they would have trouble even finding their way around their own house. This showed just how dependant humans were on their ability to see. Thus, if one were to rob someone of that exact ability, one could greatly inflict fear onto a person.

Deducing that, Yuika was sure that her plan would definitely allow her to make Keiki her own.

“After tying him up, even Keiki-senpai, with his eyesight stolen, would start crying and reflect upon leaving Yuika alone… Fufufu, the plan is perfect.”

Thus, Yuika had absolutely no concerns about the plan backfiring. However—

“Why is Yuika the one who’s tied up right now!?”

A few minutes later, the one who was tied to a chair was Yuika instead of her target. In the end, the complete opposite of her plans had occurred.

“Being asked to sort out documents right before exams is clearly weird, and since I had a bad feeling anyway, I was already pretty wary… Not to mention, do you mind explaining what this here is about?”

“Ah?! That’s Yuika’s eye mask!”

“Just what exactly were you planning on doing with that eye mask?”

“…Y-Yuika is exercising her right to remain silent.”

Of course, it was all a plan to get Keiki back from the student council. She certainly couldn’t leak that to the target himself.

“I don’t care if you’re not going to talk, but since this is a good opportunity, I’ll have Yuika reflect on her actions a bit.”

“Reflect—Wha?! Y-You’re planning on doing this and that and other perverted things to Yuika?!”

“Ohh, nice idea.”

“Hyaaa?!”

Hidden in Yuika’s memories, the incident that had happened at the training camp came flying back to the forefront of her mind all at once. After being pushed down onto a bed by her slave candidate that had lost his reason, Keiki had his way with her. There was no way she could forget about that.

“Y-You really think Yuika would forgive you if you did that?!”

“I don’t want to be told that by the person who prepared all of this in the first place.”

“Ah?! H-Hey, what are you…?!”

What followed—wasn’t the perverted punishment she expected. Instead, Keki put the eye mask on Yuika.

“Umm… Keiki-senpai? It’s pitch black now.”

“Of course it is. Ah, are you scared or something?”

“H-Hmpf! Something like this doesn’t scare Yuika at all!”

“I’m glad to hear that… Then I’ll go resume my studies, so please reflect on what you did.”

“Eh? Y-You don’t mean…”

The boy’s footsteps grew more and more distant. And, shortly after that, she heard the sound of the door closing.

“N-No way?! Keiki-senpai?!”

Was Yuika actually left alone now? With her sight still obstructed, and nobody there to save her from this?

“…Y-You’re still here, right? Please answer Yuika!”

She screamed out, but no response came back. There was only cold silence. Apparently, she really had been left behind.

“…H-Hmph. This isn’t that much of a big deal. Yuika isn’t a kid, after all.”

Trying to rid herself of her worry, she told herself that. Exactly. This was no biggie at all. She couldn’t move, or see anything, but she just had to wait a bit, and everything would be fine.

…But what if Keiki-senpai won’t come back?

In this situation, she wouldn’t even be able to visit the toilet. There was no food or water supply either. Not to mention that not many people come all the way out here, so there might not be any other chance of rescue now that the boy had left her alone.

…Scared… Yuika is scared…

The fear of not being able to move, and not being able to see. The fear of being left here for all eternity. Assaulted by countless fears, how long would she have to wait?

Ten minutes? An hour? Or… even longer than that?

Not to mention that she had no way of knowing how much time had passed.

…Is Yuika really going to be left alone here…?

Thinking like that, she was unable to hold back her emotions.

“Uuuu… Waaaaah, Keiki-senpaaaaai…”

“Ayo~”

“……Eh?”

Just when Yuika thought she heard a warm voice, her sight returned. And, the person that saved her from the pitch black darkness was none other than—

“Keiki… Senpai?”

“It looks like you’ve reflected on your behaviour, so your punishment will end here.”

“Y-You’ve been here this whole time?”

“Yup, I was studying some English vocabulary in the meantime.”

“…Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”

Yuika puffed out her cheeks and let out a childish groan as she glared at Keiki.

“…Why was Yuika the one who cried?”

“Yuika wasn’t crying!”

“It can’t be helped. Nii-san is pretty scary when he gets mad.”

“Yuik wasn’t crying, though!”

It was a few minutes after Yuika’s operation had been deemed a failure. In the same free classroom, another post-mission meeting was held.

“To think that Keiki-senpai would counterattack like that…”

“Maybe Nii-san has gotten used to how we do things at this point.”

“Kiryuu has gone through a lot recently, after all.”

“Mao-senpai shouldn’t be the one to talk all high and mighty.”

Keiki seemed to have been growing in his own way, since he was constantly surrounded by these perverted girls.

“But at this rate, it will be difficult to win Keiki-senpai over.”

“If even my appeal didn’t work, then nothing I do will change anything.”

“That only leaves us with—”

Yuika’s gaze wandered across the table towards Mizuha.

“It doesn’t look like Witch-senpai will be of any use right now, so we can only hope on Mizuha-senpai!”

“I got it. Leave it to me.”

“…Will this really be okay? If her bonds were to break, what would happen…?”

Attacking her older brother at night, having her older brother put on her panties… She might look rather docile, but she had quite the beast hidden inside of her. Thinking that, Mao could only worry in anticipation about what kind of tricks Mizuha would use.

Part 5:

Shortly after, Mizuha started acting. Her battlefield was the living room of their home. While Keiki was studying for tomorrow’s exams, Mizuha handed him a glass with something to drink.

“How about some café au lait to go with your studies?”

“Ohh, thanks.”

Accepting the glass, Keiki took a deep drink of it.

“Wow, this is really delicious.”

“Really? How about some more?”

“I guess I can drink another glass.”

“Very well.”

And thus, the boy gulped down his third glass. Watching that happen from the side, Mizuha gave a slight smile.

Fufu, what a cute Nii-san. Gulping down the fake café au lait, not knowing that it’s actually a special drink filled with a drug.

It was a drug for heightening your vitality and stamina, and special energizer that heightens your sexual drive. In short, an aphrodisiac. Using a recipe she found online, Mizuha had managed to create this terrifying potion. To hide the taste, she mixed it with some café au lait. With this, her older brother surely would lose his will to resist, and he would attack her to his heart’s desire. A very simple, yet effective plan from the carnivorous Mizuha.

When NIi-san falls head over heels for me, he’ll definitely come back to the calligraphy club, right?

To achieve her goal, the girl Kiryuu Mizuha would use whatever underhanded methods were at her disposal. Still, normally she wasn’t the kind of person who would do this. However, seeing as how the danger of Ayano stealing Keiki away kept rising, she could no longer sit still. To sum it up, out of jealousy and worry for losing the person she loved the most, Mizuha lost her ability to think this through, and went rampant, so to speak.

“…Hmm? Ah? My body suddenly feels so heavy…?”

A short while after Keiki had finished downing the third glass, it seemed like the drug had finally started taking effect. The boy’s cheeks started turning red as he was holding his pen.

“I wonder why… Mizuha suddenly looks really cute…”

“R-Really?!”

As the result seemed even better than expected, Mizuha made a victory pose inside her head.

“Mizuha…”

“Eh? …Kya?!”

Just when she realized that she was being wrapped in Keiki’s arms, he had already pushed her down on the couch. His grip alone showed that he won’t let go no matter what, and Mizuha started blushing furiously.

“N-Nii-san… I…”

Imagining what was about to happen, her heartbeat accelerated. So much so that it started to hurt, and a little worry, and a lot of anticipation were filling her body—

“……Sleepy.”

“……Eh?”

That was why she never anticipated such a development. In front of Mizua’s squinting eyes, the boy lost consciousness.

“A-Ah…? Nii-san?”

His arms and the rest of his body were devoid of strength.

“He fell asleep…”

A spectacular failure. Maybe the drink was too effective?

“Really, Nii-san is so…”

Just how much did he need to make his little sister worry before he would be satisfied? He had been friendly with so many girls, and recently even the ones from the student council. Just by merely imagining him choosing one of them instead of her sent a sharp pain through her chest.

“…But Nii-san’s sleeping face belongs to me, okay?”

She gently ran her fingers across the sound-asleep Keiki’s cheeks. Though she hated that she was still only his little sister, there were benefits that she had over everyone else.

“By the way, how long are you going to sleep anyway, Nii-san?”

Of course, she didn’t know the answer to that, so to make sure that he wouldn’t catch a cold, she brought a blanket over from the guest room and gently spread it over Keiki’s body.

“I guess I’ll go sleep too… Ahh, I have to take a shower first, though.”

Though she already had taken a bath before, being hugged that intensely by Keiki had made her work up a bit of sweat again. Since she was a hygiene fanatic, there was no way Mizuha could fall sleep while feeling like that. She headed to the dressing room connected to the bathroom in order to take a shower. When she did, she found ‘that’ lying on the floor.

“Really Nii-san… you have to put them in the basket.”

Next to the basket for dirty laundry, Mizuha spotted a pair of Keiki’s underwear. Just by thinking that they belonged to the boy she loved so very much, she was entranced by them. Normally, she’d pick them up, wash them, and bring them back to his room. However, today’s circumstances were a bit different.

“Nii-san was wearing these today, right…?”

Unable to take her eyes away from the underwear, her gaze turned into that of desire. After all, her latent desires had not at all been satisfied. To be blunt, she felt really horny. She had been embraced by the person she liked, and said person fell asleep before meeting her expectations. Of course she’d be a bit pent-up. That was why she was unable to withstand her desire this very moment.

“A bit should be fine… right?”

Though she had promised to never do it again, humans were always the kind of creature that sought to break whatever boundaries were set up. Not to mention that it was her Nii-san’s fault that she felt like this to begin with. Deciding to use that as her excuse, Mizuha steeled her resolve, and rubbed her nose against the underwear.

“Mmmm…”

Maybe it was because he took a bath every day, but the smell was rather faint. Only the slightest scent of sweat. But she still became incredibly excited by merely imagining that her older brother had been wearing the underwear.

“What… is this… weird feeling…”

Her head felt fuzzy, and her body felt like it was twitching all over. Maybe this was what cats felt when they were eating catnip. And while she was indulging herself even more in this feeling of bliss—

“Uwaah, my head hurts for some reason…”

Holding his head with one hand, the awake Keiki entered the dressing room. He probably wanted to wash his face, with the worst possible timing.

“……Mmm?”

His little sister, frozen in place while holding his underwear to her nose, entered his field of view. His face went pale in an instant.

“Ahhh, umm… Are you enjoying yourself?”

Muttering that mysterious question, he closed the door again.

“Nii-saaaaaaaaan?!”

That day, no matter how often his teary-eyed little sister called for him, the older brother wouldn’t step out of his room.

“I just want to disappear…”

“Are you okay, Mizuha-senpai?”

“Did something happen?”

“Please, don’t ask…”

The horrendous night had ended, and it was currently the first day of midterms, late in the afternoon. Yuika and Mao were once more sitting in an empty classroom when Mizuha joined them, hiding her bright red face in her hands. Of course, she couldn’t tell the two of them about what had happened yesterday. Just thinking back to it made her face burn up in shame, and if there was a hole nearby, she would have hid there for all of eternity.

In the end, the three girls hadn’t managed to recapture Keiki, meaning their operation was a complete failure.

“So, in the end, club prez didn’t help us out at all.”

“Is she really that busy with her part-time job?”

“Isn’t she just tired because all the nutrition immediately rushes to her chest?”

Though the contents of what she said were blatantly meant as an attack, Yuika’s expression was still one of concern. And that was the same for Mao and Mizuha. A feeling of something lacking resonated between the three of them.

Part 6:

Sayuki had been acting rather weird as of recently. The first time Keiki felt like something was off was the second consecutive day of midterms, a bit past noon.

“Oh, Sayuki-senpai?”

“Ah, Keiki-kun…”

When he went to buy some juice from the vending machine after the tests had ended, he was greeted by a familiar looking, black-haired beauty, reaching to press the button for strawberry milk.

“…What is it? Are you going to say that strawberry milk is for kids?”

“Nobody thought anything like that.”

Though her pouting gesture did indeed look a bit childish. And at the same time, Keiki thought that this was cute.

“I guess I’ll take some strawberry milk as well. I need some protein since I’m so tired from exams.”

“How did you do today?”

“Thanks to Fujimoto-san looking after my studies, I’d say I did pretty good.”

“I see… Good for you.”

Taking out the pack of milk, Sayuki averted her gaze. She ran her fingers through her long, glossy hair, looking like she was troubled by something.

“Senpai? What’s wrong?”

“Nothing at all… I have to change classes, so I’ll be on my way.”

“Ah, yes…”

Without waiting for Keiki’s response, the girl quickly separated from him and walked away. Watching her grow more distant, her last words once more ran through his thoughts.

“…Wait. We have exams, so why would she have to switch classes?”

That aside, today’s exams had already ended. Now that Keiki thought about it, what she had said just now was nothing more than a bad excuse.

“…Is Sayuki-senpai avoiding me?”

Though the chances for that seemed rather high, Keiki couldn’t find anything in his memories that would have acted as the trigger.

“That only leaves… that. A girl’s day.”

Not realizing at all how arriving at that conclusion made him the actual worst, he decided to use that reasoning.

Part 7:

Though midterms were finally over, there was still no time to relax.

“That being said, the culture festival is this weekend, and it’s one of the bigger events we have to worry about. We’ll be even more busy than ever, so let’s do our best with our job!”

““““Yeah!””””

As the days of the culture festival grew closer, the student council would obviously get more work. Though they did their best to prepare for most of it, there were always sudden things that came up and preparations that they could only do right beforehand, so they always appreciated every helping hand. Since the president and vice president had experience with this great undertaking, Shiho would look after the first-years Rin and Airi, while Ayano would be the person helping guide Keiki.

“Mitani, the position of the seal here is one millimeter off.”

“One millimeter… Isn’t Ai-chan a bit too particular?”

“Don’t complain. Keep going. And don’t call me Ai-chan.”

The first-year students were stamping various documents that needed approval.

“We only need two tables for the stage, okay? They’re big, so make sure to carry them together.”

Shiho was borrowing equipment and other furniture from the storage room.

“There didn’t seem to be any problems from the gardening club.”

“Yeah, the club president is keeping it organized over there.”

Ayano and Keiki were checking various clubs, making sure their preparations were moving according to what they had proposed. With that, every single member was working with one goal in mind.

“Kiryuu-kun, let’s take a quick break?”

“But we still have to go around to the rest of the clubs?”

“If we take a break now, we can work more efficiently later.”

“Then let’s do that.”

It was a Wednesday, after classes had ended, with three days left until the big culture festival. Keiki decided to go along with Ayano’s proposal, and they went to buy some juice from a vending machine in the courtyard. A lot of students were still at school because of their preparations, and the school grounds were fairly crowded. Listening to the background din, the two of them sat down on a bench in the shadow of a tree. Ayano suddenly spoke up and asked Keiki a question.

“Is the calligraphy club not showing any of their works?”

“We did last year, but Sayuki-senpai is busy with her part-time work right now.”

“Will she be able to pay the debt back in time?”

“I think it should be okay. It looks like Sayuki-senpai is working pretty hard, after all.”

The reason Keiki had become a provisional member of the student council was because of the bunny girl outfit incident. Until the debt was paid back in full, he would have to stay. That was the condition. That meant that as soon as the debt was repaid, he wasn’t obligated to help them anymore. Once he could leave, he’d get to spend a rowdy time with the others again, all the while trying to move his ‘De-Perversion Plan’ forward. There were many things still left undone in the calligraphy club.

…Even so, why am I hesitating like this?

Once again, Ayano’s words from when they were cleaning the pool came back to him. That day, she had voiced her desire for Keiki to stay in the student council.

As a matter of fact, being in the student council was very pleasant for him. He didn’t have to fight against the perverted girls all the time; there was only Ayano. Unlike some other girls, she wouldn’t stuff her panties into his mouth, use him as a model for a BL manga, and so on. Airi’s yuri hobby wasn’t exactly harmful for him either. Rintarou, or Mitani Rin, wearing female clothes in the clubroom was a sight for sore eyes since he looked like a beauty (sadly). Not to mention that Shiho was a kind, relaxing Onee-san type. And, more than anything else, as for Keiki himself, he felt happy being needed like this.

I have to come up with my answer before the debt is completely repaid…

Return to the calligraphy club, like he had originally planned, or become a full-fledged member of the student council. If he were to stay in the student council, he certainly couldn’t show his face around the calligraphy club anymore. In the end, it was a choice between the student council members and the calligraphy club members. Still, deciding right on the spot wouldn’t do him any good, so he took the third option, and decided to wait a little while longer before giving his answer.

“That reminds me. Fujimoto-san, thank you for helping me with my exam studies. Thanks to that, I got even better grades than ever.”

“You’re very welcome.”

“You must be in the top ten, right?”

“Yeah, Ayano-san here is ranked third in her grade.”

“Third?! That’s pretty amazing, you know?!”

He knew that her grades were top-notch, but that still was quite a shock. Not to mention that Ayano looked really cute while she made a V sign with her fingers.

“This time was a bit special. Thanks to Kiryuu-kun, I was working harder than usual.”

“Did I do something?”

“I was fully charged every day thanks to you.”

“Am I some sort of portable battery?”

“Pretty close, I’d say.”

Taking Keiki’s retort as a joke, Ayano gave a heartfelt giggle.

“Still, Fujimoto-san really is amazing. You still get such good grades even when you’re so busy with the student council.”

“I’ll get really embarrassed if you praise me like that…”

“Then I’ll stop doing that from now on.”

“That’s no good. This Ayano-san here gets as happy as a child if you praise her.”

“Then—”

Ayano looked at Keiki, eyes filled with expectation. Seeing that, Keiki put his hand on her head, patting her.

“There there, good girl.”

“Mm… Ehehehe.”

The vice president gave a content laugh in response. Thinking back to it, Keiki’s distance with Ayano had been quite close even before he started working for the student council.

“…Ah?”

“Kiryuu-kun? What happened?”

“Ahh… I just thought I saw Sayuki-senpai at that window over there.”

But the moment their eyes met, the girl immediately walked away.

Normally, she’d always barge in when she saw Ayano and me like this…

Sayuki always viewed Ayano as a rival. She would always act like her cute Kouhai was being taken away by some spoiled cat, and they would always start fighting. When Keiki helped out with the volunteer garbage gathering, and when they were at the sports festival, they were rather open about their rivalry. That was exactly why Keiki couldn’t help but think that something was off, after seeing her react like this.

“Sayuki-senpai really is acting weird…”

Just like back then when midterms ended. The Sayuki that Keiki treasured was always full of energy, always getting angry at the smallest things, and always laughing at the smallest things. Even so, her expression that moment ago could only be described as ‘sadness’ or ‘loneliness’. And of course, Keiki couldn’t just ignore her after seeing that.

The time was now around 8pm. Keiki was standing on the dark night street, wearing his uniform. The location was just outside the family restaurant where Sayuki was working. After his job in the student council came to an end, instead of going home immediately, he had now been waiting for over an hour for the black-haired upperclassman to come out.

“…It’s getting really chilly now around this time of day.”

It was close to changing to November now, so it was natural for the nights to start getting colder and colder. The coldness he felt was also in the sense of the club budget debt and the looming time limit.

While he was thinking about that, the people passing him by were growing fewer and fewer in number, until even the sound of the city almost disappeared. Finally, having changed into her uniform, Sayuki stepped out of the family restaurant.

“Sayuki-senpai, good work today.”

“…Eh? Keiki-kun?”

When someone she didn’t expect to see called her out, she was lost as to what to do. Shortly after, as if she had remembered something, her expression turned into that of displeasure.

“W-What is it?”

“I heard from Mizuha and the others that you were busy until late because of your part-time job. So I thought I’d escort you home.”

“I’m not a kid anymore.”

“But letting a girl walk home alone at this hour is too dangerous.”

“Walking home with a boy next to me at this hour is equally dangerous, don’t you think?”

“I won’t do anything to make Sayuki-senpai hate me.”

“…Just do what you want.”

Giving a tsundere response, Sayuki started walking. Keiki took that as her giving him permission, and he walked beside her while looking at her profile. Maybe it was because of the job, but she didn’t seem as energetic as usual.

“Senpai, you’re tired, aren’t you? We have school tomorrow, so let’s hurry home.”

“…Why is Keiki-kun the one to take the lead? No, I’m totally fine with that if you’d put a collar on me and then take the lead.”

“If I did that, the police would take the lead and stuff me into their car.”

As their conversation continued like that, their usual atmosphere started to return. All the while, they kept walking towards the girl’s home through the city at night.

“That reminds me, the deadline for the debt to be repaid is pretty soon, right?”

“…Yeah.”

“Once you get your pay, club activities can finally return back to normal.”

“……”

Sayuki suddenly stopped beneath the light of a street lamp.

“Sayuki-senpai?”

Keiki turned around in bewilderment, and the girl started confessing.

“About that… Something bad happened.”

“What happened?”

“Actually, I just got fired from my job.”

“Ohhh, so you just got fired— Ehhhhhh?!”

Keiki couldn’t hold back his shock, and let out a scream that disappeared into the night sky.

“T-That’s a joke, right?”

“Oh, how nice it’d be if that was a joke.”

“…Seriously?”

“Super seriously.”

“Just what in the world happened?”

“I broke some precious plates and such during my shift, and of course, the manager got mad at me, saying that I was fired. Not to mention that the plates I broke were worth more than what I would get from my work.”

“No way…”

Her job at the family restaurant was the only way for the girl to earn money quickly enough to repay the debt. She had even started weekend shifts just so that she could protect the calligraphy club she treasured so much, and now all of that was for naught.

“Fufu. Telling me not to bother coming in tomorrow, what kind of TV drama is this?”

“This isn’t something to laugh about!”

Keiki unconsciously shouted at her in anger.

“What are you going to do about the debt then?! If you don’t manage to pay it back this month, the calligraphy club will really get disbanded, you know?!”

Although the matter wouldn’t be settled by just getting angry, he couldn’t hold himself back, now that the club disbandment was looming near.

“…Isn’t it?”

“Eh, what?”

“The reason I was fired is all because of Keiki-kun, isn’t it?!”

“What…? Why would it be my fault?”

“You’re suddenly so close to Fujimoto-san, looking like you’re having the time of your life while studying with her, and even patting her head in the courtyard! Even though you have me as your pet, you get all lovey-dovey with some other pig! Of course I wouldn’t be able to focus on my work!”

“What’s with that?! You’re just taking out your anger on me!”

“I’m not doing anything! Keiki-kun should thinking about a girl’s feelings a bit more!”

It wasn’t like they were fighting. Even so, the words that came out of their mouths grew more harsh the longer they kept going.

“Are you blaming other people for your own mistakes? You’re completely different from a certain Fujimoto-san, who’s always thinking about other people.”

The moment he brought up Ayano’s name, Sayuki’s expression clouded even more.

“…If you really like her that much, why don’t you just stay in the student council then?”

“Eh…?”

“For someone who doesn’t understand a girl’s thought process at all, maybe the student council is really a better fit for this Virgin-kun right here.”

“Wha—?!”

When those words arrived at Keiki’s ears, he couldn’t take them sitting down, and—

“…That’s right. Rather than being stuck in the calligraphy club with this egoistic Virgin-senpai, the student council is a much more fun and a pleasant place.”

Before he realized it, he had already blurted out those words. Shortly afterwards, immense regret assaulted him. But he thought that it was fine.

Sayuki was the one who started the fight, and insulting a hardcore masochist like her would only be a reward for her. Or—that’s how it should have been.

“…Eh? S-Sayuki-senpai…?!”

The scene in front of him was completely different from what he thought would happen. Beneath the street lamp, big, round tears started building up in his Senpai’s eyes and flowing down her cheeks. When he saw that, Keiki’s mind went blank.

“…I’m going home.”

Without giving him a chance to stop her, Sayuki dashed off. Watching her grow more distant, Keiki remembered their first meeting.

When he first entered the school, he spotted a girl with long, black hair in the school building after classes. At that time, she had just become a second-year, lost all her senpais from the calligraphy club she treasured so much, and the club was even in danger of disbandment, and she was crying on a bench in the courtyard. Back then, he should’ve noticed how fragile she was—

“…I’m the worst.”

She was a girl you could never really grasp completely, who was always teasing her Kouhai, but was more fragile and delicate than anybody else.

The fact that he was unable to read her feelings, and ended up hurting her this much, was a greater shock to Keiki than anything else before.
