I peek inside the classroom while suppressing the palpitations in my chest.

Then, as Yuka-chan told me, those two were arguing with each other in a corner by the window, with their desks pressed together.

 

“… Tatsuki, are you still drinking that protein?”

“Leave me alone! You’re over 180 centimeters tall, you don’t know what I’m going through.”

“Protein doesn’t make you taller.”

“Hmm! …What, a lie?”

 

Kawariku Arakawa and Tatsuki Iwasawa, members of the Discipline Committee.

They are members of the same Discipline Committee as Mashima-kun and have been close friends of his since junior high school.

They are probably the two people who know the most about Mashima-kun here at Kamimura High School.

They are the perfect people to ask about Mashima-kun’s whereabouts.

But …

 

“I…, I’m afraid…”

 

When I finally came to the front of the classroom, my heart started to race.

No, to tell the truth, my heart has been palpitating ever since we decided on this plan.

I’m extremely shy, and the only person I can really talk to at school is Yuka-chan.

Such is the case with me, I venture into another class all by myself.

On top of that, talking to two boys I barely know is too…

“…Hey, isn’t that? Isn’t that Takane-san?”

“No way!? What’s she doing in our class?”
“She looks as beautiful as ever.”

 

Aaah! And since I was stuck in front of the classroom, I started to attract the attention of the C class students!

 

“Ugh…”

 

I clutch the Imamote full of sticky notes that I brought with me as a good-luck charm.

I was so scared that I was already in agony.

 

“…… Scary.”

 

I am afraid.

I am afraid of people’s eyes.

I am afraid of strangers.

Men even more so.

I can’t help but cower, at a loss for words, and then… remember.

I want to forget about my junior high school days.

 

“…”

 

… Shall I just stop for the day?

When I closed my eyes tightly, such a negative feeling appeared in my mind.

If I think about it, I have a little more than two months to go before the time limit for my confession to Mashima-kun.

 

Then wouldn’t it be wiser to look for other means?

There is a safer, more reliable, and less stressful way that I can try…

 

“…No.”

My legs stop shaking.

Safe? Reliable? A way that won’t hurt me?

Who do I love and who am I going to confess to?

 

“…Imamote says so.”

 

I look down at the Imamote I have brought with me as a good-luck charm.

The sticky notes are filled with my thoughts and feelings…

 

“‘Ninety percent of the factors that make a relationship work are courage and perseverance’ ……!”

 

I chanted softly in my mouth, and there was no longer any doubt in my mind.

I walked into the classroom by myself and headed straight for the two members of the Discipline Committee.

 

“Huh? Saki Takane…”

“What are you…”

“Hey, hey…”

 

I think everyone in Class C who saw me said something to me, but it was all just background noise.

As soon as I reached their seats through the crowd, I said to them.

 

“Excuse me for interrupting your meal.”

“So! Protein these days is not only protein, but also calcium and vitamin D are added to help skeletal muscle growth.
… Yeah?”

“…Saki-chan?”

 

Tatsuki Iwasawa and Kawariku Arakawa looked up at me in unison.

I can feel the surprised gazes of the entire class focused on me.

My face is hot, I am sweating strangely, and my breathing must be disturbed.

But … that’s nothing compared to the embarrassment I felt when I chatted with Mashima-kun in front of the school gate!

 

“…I have something to ask you two.”
