One of them is the perpetrator!

It was the middle of November, on a slightly freezing autumn morning.

Keiki, who had arrived at school earlier than usual, stepped inside the empty classroom. He stood at the window and watched the baseball club’s morning practice as he waited for a certain individual. Said person soon joined him.

“Good morning, Keiki-kun.”

“Good morning, Takasaki-senpai.”

“So what is it? You called me here, right?”

“Yes. I have something important to talk to Senpai about.”

“Eh? Does that mean…”

Shiho seemed to have imagined something, and her cheeks started to turn a faint red. As if she were expecting something, she looked up at her Kouhai.

“Did you seriously fell in love with me while we were pretending to be lovers?”

“That’s not it.”

“What a shame~”

At first, she pouted slightly at being let down like that, but she soon realized that Keiki wasn’t up for any jokes, and spoke again in a more serious tone.

“Did something happen?”

“A photo of Takasaki-senpai was sent to my smartphone yesterday.”

“A photo of me?”

“This is it.”

Keiki took his smartphone out of his pocket and showed Shiho the very email he had received the day prior. With the request… no, the single-sentence demand for him to break up with Takasaki Shiho, and the picture with the barely-visible bra. Shiho read the message and looked at Keiki again.

“…Keiki-kun, you pervert.”

“Just so we’re clear, I didn’t take this picture.”

“Then delete it. Right now.”

“I can’t delete important evidence like this. Don’t worry, as soon as this is over, I’ll definitely delete it.”

“Really? You don’t think that it’s a waste to delete it?”

“Of course, I think that it’s a waste from the bottom of my heart.”

“So you actually do!”

When he was upfront with Shiho, Keiki received a rather cold glare in return. However, that was nothing compared to Yuika’s glare that could kill people. On the contrary, it made her actually look rather cute.

“But this proves that there actually is a stalker. Though I didn’t expect them to take voyeuristic photos like that.”

“Yeah, I had no idea…” Shiho muttered as her expression grew grim.

Without her consent, or even her knowledge, photos of her had been taken. Anybody would feel a certain degree of fear, since they were unable to do anything against it. Not to mention that the one sentence at the end of it displayed a certain level of anger.

It really wasn’t just Senpai’s imagination…

Oh how glad he would’ve been if it was. But now that a photo like this were in the game, this couldn’t be played off as a mere joke.

“Did us pretending to be lovers have the opposite effect?”

“Since they’re asking us to break up, it certainly doesn’t seem like they’ll give up anytime soon.”

The plan was to make the stalker give up by showing him that she already had a boyfriend, but that seemed to anger the other party even more.

“So as to not enrage them any more, let’s hold back on the flirting for now. But we certainly can’t ignore them either.”

“You know… Since they sent it to you, that means…”

“Yes…”

The email was sent directly to Keiki’s phone. That meant that the perpetrator knew Keiki’s email address.

“There’s a good chance that the stalker is someone that I know.”

That was the natural conclusion they arrived at.

But who in the world…?

Firstly, they could probably exclude Shouma and Koharu, because they had no apparent reason to obstruct their relationship. The most likely suspects were actually the girls from the calligraphy club. After all, they had the greatest motivation to break up the current relationship between Keiki and Shiho. They might have seen them flirting and gotten the wrong idea about it, hence sending that email to Keiki from a fake address, but…

I don’t think that the girls from the calligraphy club would just send me an anonymous message like that…

They wouldn’t beat around the bush like that. No, they would confront Keiki to his face. Also, this gaze that Shiho had felt was there even before they started acting as lovers. That meant that the order of events didn’t fit. There also shouldn’t be any reason for the girls to target Shiho to begin with. Hence, Keiki decided that it couldn’t be someone from the calligraphy club.

“That means…”

“Keiki-kun, do you have any ideas?”

“Ah, no…”

At first, Keiki had come up with a theory, but that would definitely end up hurting Shiho. After all…

It can’t be one of the student council members… Right?

During the time he was a temporary member, he had exchanged his contact information with the rest of the student council members.

Fujimoto Ayano, the student council vice president.

Nagase Airi, the treasurer, who values morals over anything.

Mitani Rin, the secretary, who has a hobby of wearing female clothing.

They definitely had ties to Takasaki Shiho, and since they all knew Keiki’s email address, they were definitely candidates for being the stalker.

“Anyway, I’ll try to find the perpetrator as fast as I can.”

“Yeah…”

“Please call me immediately if anything happens. I’ll definitely protect you, Senpai.”

“Keiki-kun…”

When he showed Shiho a confident smile, her gloomy expression cleared up a bit.

“Thank you. I’ll be counting on you, okay?”

After that, the two of them stepped out of the classroom.

“Now then…”

Keiki started thinking as walked down the hallway, making his way towards his classroom.

If the stalker is one of the student council members, then who was the most likely suspect?

Airi loved yuri, so she would have a motive in a lot of ways.

It wouldn’t be weird to think that Ayano’s smell fetish would also trigger with people of the same sex.

And Rin might look like a beautiful girl, but he could be an assertive boy who had a thing for big breasts. There was a possibility that he had developed romantic feelings for Shiho during their work in the student council, and had ended up as a stalker because of that.

—In short, they all had possible motives.

“For now, I should check them out one by one.”

*

The same day, during lunch break.

After finishing his lunch in the classroom, Keiki walked past the student entrance, and there he was greeted by an unexpected sight.

Nagase Airi was crouching down on the floor, looking under a vending machine, looking like a dog that was stretching as she tried to grab something.

“Nagase-san? What are you doing?”

“Eh? …Ahh, Kiryuu-senpai.”

Lifting up her head to look at her Senpai, Airi spoke in a troubled manner.

“I was going to buy something to drink, but I accidentally dropped my money.”

“What a catastrophe.”

Apparently, the coins that she wanted to use to buy a drink had fallen under the vending machine.

“That’s how it is, so don’t bother me right now.”

The Kouhai cut the conversation short and returned to her work. She was trying her best to reach for a coin, but her arms were just barely not long enough.

“Umm, should I get it for you?”

“It’s fine. I’ll get it myself.”

“But…”

“I don’t need your help. You probably have some ulterior motive, like you want me to be in your debt or something, right?”

“No, that’s not it…”

“?”

“When you’re in that position, I can see your panties…”

“Nya?!”

Letting out a shriek that resembled a startled cat, Airi jumped up. With a face as red as a tomato, she held both her hands to her butt, presumably trying to hide it, as she glared at Keiki.

“…Did you see?”

“Nope, I didn’t see anything. Just barely, though.”

“I wonder about that!”

“I really didn’t. I did see your thighs, though.”

“Sexual harassment! That’s clearly sexual harassment! This is why men are…!”

The high school girl started venting her anger, and her breathing grew rougher. Keiki had clearly made the right choice, since he had been able to see something blue just now.

“Anyway, should I get the money for you?”

“Uuu… Please do…”

“At your service.”

After switching positions with Airi, Keiki was now crouching on the floor, and he could see the money that Airi had presumably dropped. It was really far in the back, but still close enough for his arms to reach it, making this mission a success.

“Here you go.”

“T-Thank you very much…”

When he handed her the 500 yen coin, Airi bowed down to Keiki ever so slightly.

“Senpai, please wait a second.”

As she said this, she put the coin she had just gotten into the vending machine. She pressed the button twice, and two packs of cafe au lait rolled down. Airi handed one to Keiki.

“As thanks.”

“You didn’t have to.”

“I don’t like having open debts.”

“Then I’ll gladly accept it.”

Giving his thanks, Keiki accepted the drink.

“Did you come here to buy something as well, Kiryuu-senpai?”

“No, I was looking for you, to be honest. I sent you an email as well, earlier. There’s something I wanted to talk about.”

“Ah, I’m sorry. I had my phone in my bag, so I didn’t notice.”

“That can happen sometimes, yeah.”

“How about we find a place to sit down instead of standing here?”

“That sounds good to me.”

It’d be better to have a calm place to sit down while talking. As Airi started walking, Keiki followed after her, and pondered to himself.

Nagase-san does seem fishy. She likes yuri, after all.

She herself accepts the fact that she hates men, and she values morals more than anything, but she still writes rather perverted love stories about two girls. Just recently, she had been excited about pairing up Yuika X Sayuki, and had been fantasizing about them day and night. She seemed to respect Shiho as well, and that respect could very well turn into love, which would put her on the path to becoming a stalker.

The place they moved to was the same classroom they had used before during their attempts to cure Airi’s hate for men. Nobody ever came here, so it was the perfect place for private conversation.

After sitting down on the chairs that were nearby, they both put straws in their drinks.

“So what business do you have with me?”

“Ahh, well… I was just wondering how things were going on your end.”

“Why are you making this sound like we’re friends who have finally seen each other after a long time?”

Airi narrowed her eyebrows in response Keiki’s nonchalant question.

“Well, pretty normal I guess. I’ve managed to not anger any boys that I came in contact with, as well. And my relationship with Yuika is progressing smoothly.”

“I see.”

“Ah, but Yuika got really mad at me a while ago. I couldn’t contain my desires, and I touched her breasts while we were changing for gym class.”

“Of course that’d make her angry.”

“But an angry Yuika is cute in itself, so it was worth it!”


“O-Okay…”

“One day, I want to ask her if she wants to sleep over at my place. Then I want to take a bath together with her. I’m glad that I was born a woman. Being able to legally take a bath together with such a beauty would be paradise.”

“Yikes.”

It was clear that Airi treasured Yuika, even though it felt like she was going a bit too far. So much so that Keiki would readily accept it if this whole thing wasn’t because of her yuri tendencies. Alas, it had nothing to do with actual romantic feelings. Maybe Airi was indeed a stalker, but her target was probably Yuika.

“And what about you, Kiryuu-senpai?”


“Eh, me?”

“You seem to be getting pretty close with Shiho-senpai.”

“Ummm… How do you know about that?”

“It’s become quite the rumour. About Shiho-senpai giving you a lap pillow in the courtyard and so on.”

“Yeah, I guess that makes sense.”

It was an understandable result of their actions.

“They even say that the harem king has finally started aiming for the student council president.”

“Harem king…”

“This is probably the reason why Yuika seems to have been in a bad mood since yesterday. Though she said something like ‘It seems that Keiki-senpai needs some more punishment’ with a bright smile.”

“I’ll just act like I didn’t hear that.”

A queen’s retaliation is a scary thing.

“Aren’t you angry?”

“Angry about what?”

“That I’m being so close with Takasaki-senpai. I thought that the man-hating Nagase-san might not like the idea of that or something.”

“Ahh… Well it’s true that I can’t really trust boys, but…”

“But?”

“I do trust you quite a bit.”

“Eh…”

When Keiki’s gaze turned into a surprised stare, the girl got flustered and averted her face.

“And also, I don’t think that Kiryuu-senpai would be a worthy man for Shiho-senpai.”

“Ugh…”

“I’m guessing that Shiho-senpai asked you to act like this because she had some bothersome circumstances, right?”

“Are you an esper or something?”

“That’s as plain as day. But… I was a bit frustrated that she didn’t come ask me for help…”

With her true feelings spilled, Airi made a bitter smile.

“It’s very rare for Shiho-senpai to ask for help, you know? So please do whatever you can to save her. Okay, Kiryuu-senpai?”

“Yeah, leave it to me.”

That was what he was planning on doing from the very start. To free her from the stalker who was plaguing her, and to take her worries away. He had no plans whatsoever to desert that job this late in the game.

“Ah, also. If you’re really not going out with Shiho-senpai, you’re better off explaining that to Ayano-senpai.”

“Why Fujimoto-san?”

“Recently, she’s been very absent-minded, and she seems very depressed and deprived of any energy.”

“Eh, why is that?”

“Haaah… It’s fine if you don’t understand.”

“What’s this about…?”

Keiki had no clue.

Why was Ayano not feeling well? Why would Airi tell him about that right then? But there’s one thing that he knew for certain. And that was that Nagase Airi seemed completely unrelated to the stalker case.

After classes ended, the time was nearing 4pm in the afternoon. After losing a match of rock-paper-scissors to decide whose turn it was to clean the classroom, Keiki ended as the designated janitor. He was currently carrying the trash bag out to the garbage collection point on the first floor.

“From the looks of it, Nagase-san isn’t the perpetrator…”

At first he had thought that she would be the most likely candidate, but after having a talk with her, the girl wasn’t suspicious at all whatsoever. Naturally, he didn’t have any proof of her innocence, but he certainly didn’t believe that she had lied, seeing how much she respected Shiho.

“If it’s not her, then the next suspicious person is…”

While muttering to himself, he was walking down the first floor hallway when suddenly—

“—Ah?!”

“…Hm?”

Suddenly, he could hear someone’s voice, which stopped him in his tracks. When he scanned his surroundings for the source, he couldn’t find anybody.

“Was it just my imagination?”

“—O-Outside the window.”

“Outside the window?”

When he was told that little hint, Keiki stuck his head out the window. When he did, his eyes met up with Fujimoto Ayano, who was shaking fiercely as she was clinging to a branch on top of a tree.

“Fujimoto-san?! What are you doing?!”

“It’s a long story…”

“Let’s hear it.”

“There was a cat on top of this tree, and she wouldn’t come down.”

“Ohh?”

“So I thought that I would help her out, but now I can’t get down, myself.”

“You became the very thing you set out to save?! Also, that story isn’t all that long!”

“Not to mention that the cat just jumped down herself…”

“How unlucky is that…”

She probably tried her best to climb up there, only to get left behind by the cat…

“Please… Don’t abandon me…?”

“I won’t, so don’t worry.”

Only the devil would be emotionally able to ignore a crying girl like her.

“Anyway, I’m coming over right now, so don’t move.”

After setting the trash bag down at the collection point, he stepped outside the window into the courtyard. He knew that it was bad manners to do that, but it was an emergency, so he had no choice. Thanks to that shortcut, he could be there for the girl a few seconds faster.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t think I’d need you help me like this, Kiryuu-kun.”

“No, it’s not like you did anything wrong.”

Going this far to save a cat in trouble was very much like Ayano. But the bigger problem right now was thinking about how to get her down from the tree.

“Hmm… You’re pretty high up…”

A while ago, he had also climbed a tree to save a cat, but he had never expected to be forced to save a girl who was stuck in a tree.

“I certainly can’t put you in my clothes like the cat back then… So I guess all I can do is get a ladder…”

“Uuu… Thank you…”

“I’ll be right back.”

“Ah, you can take your time.”

“But I mean…”

“Hm?”

“If I don’t hurry, your skirt will get flipped up soon…”

“Fueh?!”

With Keiki pointing that out, Ayano quickly put both her hands on her butt.

“Ah, idiot! If you let go that quickly…!”

“……Eh?”

Now that her hands weren’t holding the branch anymore, she lost her balance. Naturally, since she wasn’t some trapeze artist from a circus, she was unable to regain her grip, and her legs lost their footing.

“Kyaaaa?!”

“Fujimoto-san!”

Keiki started dashing to catch her. Shortly afterwards, he heard a dull sound, and both of them collapsed to the ground. Thanks to Keiki’s quick thinking, Ayano had safely made it to the ground… but on top of the boy. He had collapsed with his face upwards, and her butt was pressing into his face.

“Mmmhmmmhm?! Mmmmhmhmm?! (Eh?! What’s this, what’s happening?!)”

“Hyan?! K-Kiryuu-kun?! Your breath is hitting me…?!” Fujimoto-san screamed aloud as Keiki’s breath hit her through the panties, which sent shivers through her body.

In his situation however, Keiki couldn’t really understand her, and he just frantically tried to breathe in order to survive.

“Mmmmmm?! Hmhmhmhmh?!”

“Hyaaaaaaaa?!”

Ayano jumped up with a red face, letting out a cute shriek. Finally free, Keiki took deep breaths as if his life depended on it.

“Haaah… Haaah… I thought I was going to die…”

Having made it through that situation, which was dangerous in a lot of ways, Keiki slowly got up, appreciating the fresh air that was filling his lungs. Ayano threw an angry glare at him as she pushed down her skirt.

“Kiryuu-kun… Pervert.”

“Eh?”

For a second, the poor Kiryuu-kun was unable to understand the meaning behind her words. Shortly afterwards, though, Keiki connected the dots behind her expression and her gestures, and all the blood rushed to his head.

“No, that just now was an accident! But still, I’m sorry!”

Accident or not, he basically had stuffed his face into the skirt of a girl. Hence, he furiously apologized, and bowed down at a full 90 degrees.

“B-But it’s fine! For some reason, it smelled like flowers! It was a really good smell, okay?!”

“Smell?!”

“Ah, oops…”

He had intended to follow up with an apology, but he had dug his own grave instead. Bringing up smell in this situation made him sound more like a pervert than a saviour, and because it was Ayano of all people, her face became even redder than before.

“O-Oh right, are you okay, Fujimoto-san?”

“…No, I’m fine thanks to you. Thank you for saying me…”

“Y-Yeah… You’re welcome…”

Though Ayano had thanked Keiki, she still wouldn’t look him in the eyes.

W-Well, that aside, this might be the perfect chance to cross-examine her…

Fujimoto Ayano was one of the potential suspects for being the stalker. He had planned to search for her after throwing away the trash, anyway.

The student council vice president who loves sniffing boys’ sweaty odor. He thought that she might also be interested in the smell of girls, so there was a chance that she was aiming for Shiho’s panties.

As a test, he imagined what that very scene would look like.

Ayano would be sitting on the couch in the student council office, sniffing some cute panties as she said to herself “Rather than Kiryuu-kun’s underwear, Kaichou’s panties smell so much better… Haah… haah…”—

That seemed way worse than sniffing some guy’s underwear, right?

“Uhm, Fujimoto-san, there’s something I’d like to ask of you. Can I?”

“Me? Not Kaichou?”

“Hm? Why did you suddenly bring up Takasaki-senpai?”

“You seem to be really close to Kaichou recently. You never bothered to come see me or anything…”

“What’s with that jealous reply?!”

Averting her gaze, Ayano puffed out her cheeks in a pout. It made her look like a maiden in love. Maybe this was what Airi was talking about? She was jealous because of the rumours going around about Keiki and Shiho, and was acting weird because of it?

“It truly is vexing. Even though Ayano-san loves Kiryuu-kun’s smell more than anyone.”

“Ah, it really was about that…”

Although the jealousy part was correct, the rest of it was still perverted like usual.

“So what did you want to ask me?”

“Please don’t get mad at me…”

“Eh? Yeah…”

“You like boys’ freshly-worn underwear, right?”

“Indeed, though it’s more like I can barely hold myself back if they’re within reach.”

“I see… very interesting.”

Well, that was exactly what Keiki anticipated. Now was the real question.

“Then are you interested in freshly-worn panties from girls, Fujimoto-san?”

“……”

In that moment, all light disappeared from Ayano’s eyes.

“Kiryuu-kun.”

“Yes.”

“Girls’ panties don’t get me excited in the slightest. Not one bit.”

“Ah, okay…”

Even though her face was expressionless, you could feel the earnestness behind her words. As things stood, it seemed that Ayano hadn’t awakened to the excitement of a girl’s smell.

I guess that means that Fujimoto-san isn’t the stalker either…?

That meant that the fantasies that Keiki had imagined were nothing more than a mistake on his part. With this, Keiki learned that Fujimoto-san had no reason whatsoever to stalk Shiho. Hence, the only candidate left was—

“Let me get this straight. How do you feel about Takasaki-senpai, Rintarou?”

“Uhm… That’s an abrupt question if I’ve ever heard one…”

Keiki’s investigation of Ayano had ended, and he finished his job disposing trash. Right now, Keiki was pulling a kabe-don on his kouhai, Mitani Rin, behind the school with no people around. With his Senpai boxing him in like that, the boy who was actually wearing boy clothes for once flashed a bitter smile.

“When you called me out here, I totally thought you were going to confess to me.”

“Please stop talking about that. That would never happen.”

No matter how cute he might look, Rin was a boy. Keiki detested the doujins that Mao created, and he had no interest in boys. There was a boy who had confessed to Rin before at the culture festival, but that was because he was under the impression that Rin was actually a girl, which resulted in a broken heart and a shock of a lifetime.

“Then can we at least stop the kabe-don?”

“Not until you confess everything.”

“Eh…”

After questioning Airi and Ayano, he found nothing suspicious about them. Since neither of them could be the perpetrator, that only left Rintarou. Though he might wear clothes that a girl would, both his body and heart were that of a man. After starting to work in the student council, he had started developing feelings for his upperclassman Shiho, and after being unable to suppress those feelings, and not knowing how to deal with them, he ended up as a stalker. That was what Keiki suspected.

“So how do you feel about Takasaki-senpai now?”

“Hmmm, let’s see… Shii-chan-senpai sure is a charming woman. She’s good at her job, kind towards everyone, and that clumsy part that she shows from time to time really make her a lovable individual.”

“You’re unexpectedly straightforward, aren’t you, Rintarou?”

“She even allowed me to work while wearing a girl’s uniform. I was really happy about that. She accepted me, even though I was different…”

“Rintarou…”

“But, to be honest, I prefer girls with bigger breasts than her.”

“You really are the worst.”

He was a cute-looking shit-faced bastard.

“Ehhhh, Kei-kun-senpai likes big breasts as well, right?”

“That I do, but I don’t choose girls based on that alone.”

Naturally, he couldn’t fall in love with a girl just because her breasts were big. But, before Keiki could question Rin any further—

“Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!”

A girl’s shriek rang out close to them.

“Uwah?! W-What was that?!”

When he looked over towards the source, there was a reddish brown-haired girl with a sidetail.

“Nanjou?”

“K-Keeki is doing a kabe-don on Rinnosukeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?!”

“Hey, stop right there! Don’t take pictures!”

Flashing a devilish grin with her smartphone in hand, the fujoshi started furiously tapping the photo button on her camera. At lightning speed, Keeki freed Rinnosuke from the kabe-don.

And with that, the investigation of the final stalker candidate ended as well. Apparently, Shiho’s chest size wasn’t enough to satisfy the hidden beast inside Rin. Nevermind concrete evidence, it had enough persuasiveness in itself to make Keiki believe him.

So Rintarou isn’t the stalker either?

Although he was enough of a scummy guy to prioritize girls according to their chest size, he wasn’t the type of human who would trouble girls like that. Of course, this didn’t mean that all his doubts were cleared up or anything, but there was no counter-evidence that proved that Rintarou was the stalker.

In the end, after all that questioning, Keiki still couldn’t figure out the identity of the stalker. He couldn’t even find any worthwhile information that would lead Keiki to him.

After waiting for her job at the student council to end, Keiki escorted Shiho home.

She said mysterious things like “Sorry for always making you do this~” and “You promised to never tell anyone, okay~” while Keiki matched his walking speed with hers.

Naturally, even during that time, all he thought about was the stalker who was targeting Shiho.

Just who is the person who has their eyes set on Shiho…?

That other person even knows Keiki’s email address. When he realized that, he theorized that the stalker had a high chance of being one of the student council members, but none of the three showed any signs of being fishy.

Airi was as obsessed with Yuika as ever.

Ayano only was interested in men’s underwear.

Rintarou could only see breasts and nothing more.

Naturally, there could be lies hidden in their testimonies, but Keiki didn’t think that one of them was the kind of person who would terrorize the student council president Shiho whom they looked up to so much. Hence, the search for the stalker was back to square one.

Also, is the stalker really someone that I know? If not, how would they have gotten their hands on my email address…?

Was it a super hacker who snuck into the phone company’s network and found his number with that? That at least sounded way too irrational to be true, but the stalker had indeed gotten his email address somehow. In the end, the chances were high that it was someone that Keiki knew, after all.

That’s how far Keiki thought until he realized that his thoughts had taken a complete 360 and wound up at the start again. As he unconsciously let out a sigh, Shiho peered into his face while walking next to him.

“Keiki-kun, you seem to be a bit tired.”

“Well, yes…”

It was a day full of ups and downs, after all. He had gone through all sorts of trouble today, and hadn’t gained anything from it, which had dealt a lot of damage to his psyche.

“Hey, Keiki-kun?”

“What is it?”

“How about we go on a date on the weekend, for a change of pace?”

“A date?”

“Keiki-kun, you’re working really hard for me, aren’t you? As thanks, I want to act like a girlfriend for you.”

“Oh right, that’s the contract we made.”

In return for having Keiki act as her boyfriend during the stalker case, she would act like a girlfriend for him. That was the contract they had made for the time being.

“I think that running wild for a bit is a good idea to relax, don’t you think?”

“But going out together at a time like this is…”

“If you won’t come with me, then I just have to go out alone.”

“That I can’t allow. It’s way too dangerous.”

They still don’t know anything about the stalker. In such a situation, he couldn’t let the girl go out on her own.

“Then it’s decided! I’m looking forward to it!”

“For crying out loud…”

Although he was quite fed up with her after that, seeing the energetic and gleeful smile of the girl made him smile as well, whether he wanted to or not. And that was perfectly fine, because everyone around her would worry about her if she had a gloomy expression instead. Keiki for his part thought that this was indeed a wonderful thing.

*

The promised day arrived, and Keiki and Shiho’s “date” was in full swing.

“The movie was really fun, wasn’t it?”

“Yeah. The foreshadowing was great and you still had no clue about it until everything was revealed.”

The time of day was around 11am in the morning. Having stepped out of the cinema, the two of them were talking about the western movie they had just watched. Today, the girl was wearing a red skirt with a spacious shirt, and jacket on top of that, which made her look very stylish.

Takasaki-senpai is really good-looking…

Just while he was sitting next to her during the movie, Keiki felt his heart beating faster. Her long, wavy hair smelled so great that Keiki couldn’t believe his senses, and if their gazes met during the movie, her grin was so lovable that it wouldn’t be a surprise if he fell in love with her right on the spot.

“It’s a bit too early for lunch, so how about we walk around and look at the stores?”

“That sounds nice. Is there something that you’d like to see, Senpai?”

“Let’s see… I think I might want to start looking for some winter clothing.”

“Winter clothing…”

“Is something wrong?”

“Let me just ask this. You’re not going to drag me to some lingerie shop, right?”

“Eh, why would I do that?”

“I was just wondering…”

He couldn’t tell her that he had experienced that before. And even more so the fact that it was to pick out new underwear with his little sister.

“Even if it were my lover, it’d be embarrassed to go to a lingerie shop with a boy.”

“Figures!”

Keiki agreed completely with the girl whose cheeks were colored a faint red. This was a normal reaction from a normal girl.

Stuffing their freshly worn panties into his mouth, showing off their underwear to him, having their older brother pick out underwear, and so on is only something that the perverts of the calligraphy club would do. How wonderful it was to be with a normal girl like Shiho. And seeing her get red when he brought up the topic of underwear was actually pretty cute. For Keiki, who was constantly surrounded by perverts, the girl almost seemed like an angel.

“Ah, but do normal couples nowadays actually do that? Maybe I should have Keiki-kun pick out some underwear for me?”

“We don’t have to act like normal couples.”

Making nonchalant conversation like this, they began with their window shopping. Naturally, they completely disregarded the lingerie store, and instead went looking for normal western clothes, debating about which clothes would look good on each other, and having each other wear cat ears at a miscellaneous shop.

For lunch, they picked a classic fast food restaurant with some hamburgers. When the girl wiped away some sauce stains on his cheek, it really felt like they were a normal couple of lovers.

Watching a movie, going shopping, and having conversations about whatever came to mind—

Who would’ve thought that a normal date could be something so wonderful!

Keiki couldn’t be happier. He was experiencing a normal date like this with a normal girl. And when the time was around 3pm, it happened while they were taking a break in a food court in the inside of a mall to drink something.

“…Hm?”

“What’s wrong?”

“Ah… I just felt like someone was watching us…”

“Is that…”

“I’m not sure yet, but the stalker might be near.”

“No way…”

There was no way to prove it. But Keiki also felt an uncomfortable feeling just now. When he glanced around the food court, he spotted various people, but nobody looked suspicious at first glance. However, he couldn’t deny the possibility that the stalker was hiding in the shadows and spying on them. That would mean that Shiho was not only being targeted at school, but also on her days off. It would be another thing if it was something like a silent guardian similar to Koharu, but the other person was someone who takes voyeuristic pictures like the one Keiki had received. There was no telling what other sorts of things they might resort to if things didn’t go their way.

Either way, it seemed that just staying passive like this wouldn’t solve anything. They had to reveal the stalker’s identity, and have him completely stop, or Shiho would be forced to live the rest of her student life in constant fear.

If so, they might as well try and go on the aggressive here.

“If your stalker really is here, then we might be able to try to reveal the person here.”

“But how?”

“We’re going to be even more lovey-dovey than at school. With a bit of luck, they’ll get enraged and confront us head-on.”

“What’s your plan?”

“Uhmmm… Going into a lingerie shop together?”

“So you didn’t actually think of anything.”

“Do you have any ideas, Takasaki-senpai?”

“Let me think…”

The girl put one finger on her lips as she thought.

“How about the pocky game?”

“The pocky… game?”

Let’s clarify this. In the pocky game, both participants take an edible stick in their mouths and slowly start eating away at it. It was a very popular party game, where the first one to let go with their mouth loses. Normally, the first contender to feel more embarrassed would be the one to let go, but of neither parties did, it would end with a kiss, making it a normie game for normies during normie activities.

“Couples nowadays all do things like that, right?”

“I’d like to hear about the image that you have in your mind about couples.”

“But it might work to lure out the stalker, right?”

“I don’t have any pocky sticks on me, though.”

“It’s fine. I thought that something like this might happen, so I brought some with me.”

“Just what were you anticipating would happen today?”

But now that she had them, Keiki didn’t have any reason to decline. After she took the pack out of her bag, Shiho grinned.

“Are we doing this?”

“Of course we are.”

And thus it was decided. Quickly finishing their preparations (basically each of them putting one end in their math), they sat across the table and looked at each other with a serious gaze.

“Are you ready?”

“Yes, I have the determination to even kiss Senpai.”

“You can’t do that, okay?”

“Naturally.”

“Then here we go.”

Taking the holding end (with no chocolate on it) in her mouth, Shiho brought her face closer.

What is this? She’s crazy cute.

Keiki had never known that just holding a pocky stick in their mouths would make a girl look so cute. Telling Keiki that it was his turn with a gaze, he mentally prepared himself and put the other end in his mouth.

“……”

“……”

Obviously, it was very embarrassing. There’s no way that anyone could keep a calm mind in such a situation. It was Keiki’s first time that a girl had looked at him this closely, and he could feel his reason slowly starting to melt away, just like the chocolate in his mouth.

“…Mmm… Mm…”

While Keiki couldn’t help but freeze up, Shiho slowly but steadily continued to eat away at the pocky stick.

Ah, right. This is that kind of game.

It doesn’t end with just looking at each other. It’s a test to see who chickens out first.

And if I don’t do this seriously, the stalker might become suspicious…

They had to look like they were actually flirting with each other. Steeling his resolve, Keiki also joined Shiho in nibbling away at the stick.

“……”

“……”

Neither of them spoke a word, and they just continued to eat away. It might be a rather plain game, but it definitely got your heart beating similar to a sport an athlete would perform. Shiho for her part seemed embarrassed as well, and her beautiful face started to turn a strong red. Slowly, but steadily, their distance was growing closer and closer…

Umm… How long are we going to keep this up?

They had never decided on a time to stop. As if she had seen through her Kouhai’s mask, and read his mind, Shiho only smiled. She continued munching away on her end of the stick.

Closer closer closer?!

There was barely any stick left. Their faces were close enough for them to feel each other’s breath, and they’d really end up kissing each other if they kept going. Keiki gulped, and just when Shiho was about to cross the final line—

““You caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan’t!!!””

““?!””

Suddenly, being startled by two loud voices overlapping, Shiho and Keiki reflexively separated from each other. Still holding the last bits of the pocky stick in his mouth, Keiki turned his gaze towards the two girls that were the sources of the voices.

“Yuika-chan?! Sayuki-senpai?!”

Yuika was wearing a hoodie with jeans and a cap, which gave her a boyish look.

On the other hand, Sayuki looked more like an office lady. Her hair was in a ponytail and glasses were decorating her beautiful face.

A few minutes later, the fake couple and disguised girls were sitting at the same table. From Keiki, clockwise sat Shiho, Sayuki, and Yuika.

“So how long have you two been tailing us?”

“Since around ten minutes before you arrived at the meet-up.”

“So from the very start, huh?”

In short, they had been given absolutely no privacy.

“We wore disguises to make sure that Keiki-senpai didn’t spot us, you know? Since Yuika’s hair would stand out, she decided to wear this cap.”

“I see.”

As Yuika had said, her blonde hair really stood out. Trying to hide her hair was the right decision.

Weren’t the two of them sitting close to us before?

They looked so different that Keiki hadn’t noticed them at all. So the gaze he had felt earlier was because of the two of them.

“Are those glasses part of your disguise as well, Sayuki-senpai?”

“That’s correct.”

Puffing out her chest in a boasting manner, Sayuki pushed up her glasses.

“How is it? I look like a beautiful knowledgeable woman, right?”

“Rather, that very statement makes you sound like an idiot.”

Whether she was wearing a disguise or not, she still was the same Sayuki. But disregarding that for now, Keiki was more interested in their intentions for following Keiki and Shiho.

“How did you even know that we were going out today? Since you were there from the very start, you must’ve known from the very beginning, right?”

“We received the information from a trustworthy source.”

“A trustworthy source?”

When Keiki questioned them, Shiho jumped into the conversation.

“Ah, that might be my fault. I mentioned this date to Airi-chan.”

“Oh, that explains it.”

Yuika and Airi were good friends. Airi had probably mentioned it to her in passing.

“That doesn’t matter right now. The problem at hand is why you two were playing such an indecent game in public like that.”

“That’s right! A pocky game is definitely not something high school students should be doing!”

“That’s really rich coming from you…”

After all, they were two perverts who had done far worse and more perverted things.

“It seems that Takasaki-san has some circumstances behind this whole situation, but if these inexcusable actions with my Keiki-kun continue, I might just take him home myself!”

“Yuika had her eyes on Keiki-senpai long before you! She won’t hand him over to Kaichou-san!”

“Woah, Keiki-kun is really popular.”

“No, it really isn’t what you think it is.”

The difference in temperature between the aggravated Sayuki and Yuika, and the calm and collected Shiho was amazing.

“Also, I myself want to go on a date with Keiki-kun. With the club budget incident and culture festival, I’ve been severely lacking my Keiki-kun nutrient daily supplements.”

“Ah, Witch-senpai, that’s unfair! Yuika also wants to go on a date with Keiki-senpai!”

“Now they’re fighting amongst each other…”

To be fair, Sayuki and Yuika were like a dog and a cat. They had been fighting over Keiki for a long time.

“Then how about we do a contest, with the right to go on a date with Keiki-kun on the line?”

“““A contest?”””

The three calligraphy club members all showed the same reaction in response to Shiho’s proposal.

“Everyone here wants to go on a date with Keiki-kun, right? Having the person himself choose would leave two disgruntled people, so we’ll have a contest. The winner gets to go on a date with him, fair and square.”

“I see, that sounds good to me.”

“No complaints here.”

The perverted girls showed no signs of disagreeing. Keeping the two of them in the corner of his gaze, Keiki spoke up.

“But what kind of contest?”

“Hm? Isn’t the pocky game fine?”

“Again with the pocky game…”

Well, there wasn’t much to do other than that in a place like this.

“First it’s Tokihara-san against Koga-san, and the winner will go against me. The last girl standing receives the right to go on a date with Keiki-kun. All good?”

“I couldn’t ask for anything better.”

“Yuika will win the right for the date.”

And thus, the curtains for the girls’ pocky game tournament were lifted.

“I won’t hold back just because you’re my Kouhai at the club, okay?”

“Don’t worry, I’ll show you how strong I can be.”

“Then please start the first round.”

Shiho gave the starting signal, and the girls started eating away at the pocky stick. Sayuki was on the holding end, while Yuika had the chocolate one.

“……”

“……”

The sight of them taking this so seriously was almost surreal.

“This is pretty boring, isn’t it?”

“They can’t exactly talk, after all.”

But the more the game progressed, the more the atmosphere changed. The pocky stick was starting to get shorter and shorter, and both of them had started to grow wary of the possibility of kissing each other, as their serious expressions slowly started to crumble into ones of agony and embarrassment.

“Both of you are turning really red.”

“Right, right.”

Watching this scene unfold wasn’t too bad, now that Keiki thought about it.

“If Nagase-san saw this, she’d probably be getting a nosebleed by now… And Takasaki-senpai? What are you taking out your smartphone for?”

“A commemoration picture. I’d like to save this sight for future generations.”

“Are you a demon?”

The two of them already looked like they were dying from embarrassment. What would happen if they saw this?

While Keiki was watching the scene unfold, his smartphone vibrated in his pocket.

“Hmm? Who could it be?”

He took it out, and when he checked the message—

“This is…?!”

It was another email from the stalker. It was a short message similar to the other one. The text read ‘I can see you.’

From where?! Where are they?!

Making sure that the others didn’t notice, Keiki scanned his surroundings. The guests sitting close to them in the food corner, the employees standing by at the counter. Nobody was looking over at them, but any of them could be suspicious.

“Alright, that’s the end! The first round goes to Tokihara-san.”

“Phew, it was no big deal.”

“Uuu… When Yuika thought about kissing Witch-senpai, she reflexively pulled her head away…”

“Keiki-kun, did you see my overwhelming victory?”

“Ah, I’m sorry. I wasn’t watching at all.”

“How cruel?!”

So why do you have a faint glimmer of happiness in your expression?

Keiki decided to ignore the masochistic girl who would feel excitement after being treated cruelly.

“Now, Takasaki-san, it’s time for your duel with me!”

“Ah, before that, I’ll be going to the toilet really quick.”

“Eh……”

Keiki stared blankly at Shiho as she stood up from her seat. The girl herself didn’t understand Keiki’s intentions behind that gaze.

This isn’t good! The stalker is right here…!

Letting the girl go away alone right now would be far too dangerous. However, telling her ‘Don’t go to the bathroom!’ would also be a bit much…

“……Takasaki-senpai!”

“Eh?”

Keiki jumped up and forcefully embraced Shiho from behind. Though there might’ve been other ways of going at it, Keiki was so focused on stopping her that he couldn’t think straight—

And to finish it off, Keiki made the worst possible confession.

“Please let me come with you to the toilet!”

“““……”””

In that moment, the whole food court fell to absolute silence. Obviously, there was no hidden meaning behind Keiki’s words. He had only used the wrong words at the wrong time, even though he just was too worried to let her go alone because of the stalker.

However, since nobody knew his intentions, everyone came to the same conclusion when they heard those words.

“Keiki-kun, why are you suddenly hugging a girl like that and asking to accompany her to the toilet?!”

“Asking to go to the same toilet as a girl is the worst!”

“Eh… H-Huh?”

Although Keiki finally realized his mistake after both of them made it painfully clear, it was already too late. Right now, they were looking at Keiki like he was a complete pervert.

“Even though you never asked me for something like that…”

“So she’s more important than us, Keiki-senpai…?”

“Wha—?!”

“Keiki-kun…”

“Keiki-senpai…”

Both of them started to get teary, and they glared at Keiki.

““You idioooooot!””

They screamed ‘idiot’ at the top of their lungs as they ran away. And when he turned around to look at Shiho again, she said the following in an apologetic tone of voice.

“I’m happy, but going to the toilet together is a bit much…”

“It’s a misunderstanding!”

*

The time was close to 7pm. The date had ended, and they returned to their own city again, walking through the night streets next to each other.

“Ahahaha. I didn’t expect Keiki-kun to have such a passionate side to him.”

“I already explained everything, didn’t I?”

“I know, I know. It was because the stalker was there, so you didn’t want to leave me alone.”

“That’s right…”

While they walked towards Shiho’s house, the conversation naturally drifted back to the event at the food court.

“Being hugged from behind like that really made my heart skip a beat, though. This is the first time a boy did something like that for me.”

“I’m sorry, I just thought that letting you go there alone would end badly.”

“Well, you got that email after all. It can’t be helped.”

“I wonder if the stalker was really present at that moment?”

“Probably? But it might also have just been a bluff.”

“Yeah…”

In the end, there was no more interaction with the stalker after that email. Since Sayuki and Yuika hadn’t returned either, they just continued with their date.

“Still Tokihara-san and Koga-san really like you, Keiki-kun. You wouldn’t really disguise yourself and follow someone on a date if you didn’t hold any sort of romantic feelings for them.”

“Romantic feelings…”

It really wasn’t as cute as Shiho thought. Their actions were driven by perversion rather than love.

“They wanted to go on a date with you so badly that they did that pocky game, you know? You could even go out with both of them if you confessed now.”

“No, that would be a bit weird…”

What would await him after said confessions would be a master and slave two-timing relationship. Naturally, Keiki wasn’t really about that sort of life.

“…Then is it fine if I take you?”

“Eh?”

Shiho suddenly stopped in her tracks and wrapped her arms around Keiki’s.

“T-Takasaki-senpai?!”

“Eheheh, surprised? It’s payback for earlier.”

“P-Payback…”

“…Hey, Keiki-kun? Should we really go out?”


“Ehhhhh?!”

“Ah, you turned red.”

“Don’t tease me like that.”

“I’m not, though. If it’s with Keiki-kun, I feel like I could enjoy the rest of my student life together with him.”

“Senpai…”

“The date today was also really fun. Once this whole matter is settled, we might as well give up on pretending, and start going out for real.”

“………”

Keiki couldn’t quite catch up because of the sudden development. However, he understood that that Shiho wasn’t joking for once. To say it outright, Keiki wondered if his popular phase had suddenly arrived. Naturally, anybody would see this as a chance to get a cute girlfriend like Shiho, but since Keiki was a complete novice to love, he couldn’t judge what the right answer here was.

With his Senpai still clinging to his arm, the Kouhai had completely frozen in place. And the thing that broke this scene was a voice.

“…Nii-san?”

“Eh?”

When he focused his sight on the direction where the voice came from, he found Mizuha standing there, wearing a comfy looking sweater, a skirt, and tights. She seemed to be on her way home from a shopping trip, seeing as she was holding her beloved eco bag in her hand. Before Mizuha’s mouth opened again, Shiho quickly separated from Keiki.

“You’re Keiki-kun’s little sister, right? Good evening.”

“Good evening…”

Normally, Mizuha would always give a bright greeting to anyone, no matter the situation, but just this once, she almost looked disheartened.

“Nii-san, were you on a date with Takasaki-senpai?”

“Ah, yes. I’m planning on escorting her home now.”

For some reason, the older brother started talking very politely. He sensed some kind of pressure emanating from his little sister.

“Is that so? Then, try to come home directly once you’ve done that, okay? I’ll be waiting for you, and I’ll have dinner ready.”

“Understood.”

After the less sibling-like and more superior-subordinate-like conversation, Mizuha gave a slight bow, said “Excuse me,” and walked away.

“Your little sister is as cute as ever, Keiki-kun.”

“I’m very proud of her.”

“But you don’t really look like siblings at all.”

“We’re not actually blood-related.”

“Eh, really?!”

Shiho seemed very surprised at the sudden revelation.

And, thanks to the sudden appearance of Mizuha, the conversation about really going out with each other was left hanging.

  1. Well now it seems too obvious that Shiho sent the message. That might actually be a red herring.
