Same day, 11:30 a.m. The men's toilet on the second floor of Keyaki Mall.
There were two men talking. A person who once resigned as leader and returned to the front stage once again, Ryuuen Kakeru.
And another person, is a student who has kept his class in class A for one year, Hashimoto Masayoshi. It's not a coincidence that they met. But Hashimoto called him to this unpopular place.
"So ... To the point of calling me to a place like this... Intrigue as to what you want to talk about?"
"Come on, don't badmouth me, there is no such intrigue. I just want to talk about the past year." Saying that, Hashimoto took a vague attitude.
Ryuuen doesn't hate it ... People who always hold the atmosphere. But at the same time he didn't like it. He had the feeling that it was still better for fools with physical strength like Ishizaki and Ibuki, because they were easier to understand.
Of course, Hashimoto did not trust Ryuuen, nor believed that he would be trusted by Ryuuen. Just sharing deals with the same interests.
However, both of them knew that sometimes this formed a close relationship.
"In the previous final exam at the end of year you beat the class B ... Can I assume that you have fully recovered?"
"I don't know ... Maybe just a whim." Without answering seriously, Ryuuen smiled with his arms crossed.
"If it's just for fun, then it's a frightening whimper. If the whim is still aiming for class A then it's better to stop there."
Ryuuen Reluctant to trade with him, Hashimoto gave a white flag by raising both hands.
(TLN: white flag is a term for surrender.)
"Are you that interested in my movements?"
"You're the one who once backed away, then suddenly came back again... Isn't it weird if I wasn't interested about that?"
He was more interested in movement than existence that would become a barrier later.
"Are you doing surveillance like this on instructions from Sakayanagi?"
"Unfortunately ... That question is not easy to answer."
Even though Hashimoto said it ambiguously, Ryuuen already knew that this was not an instruction from Sakayanagi. Even so Ryuuen mentioned Sakayanagi's name to find out Hashimoto's true intentions.
"So, what will you do in the future?"
"Why ... do you have a problem?" As he laughed, Ryuuen approached Hashimoto. Slightly strengthening Hashimoto's body, taking a defensive stance for emergencies.
Even though the person chooses the place himself, this is a less popular toilet. There are no surveillance cameras to ensure safety in the event of an emergency. It crossed his mind to record on the cell phone, but if he was found out, then there was the fear that his relationship with Ryuuen would disappear.
"Don't you think you can win as long as you are clever in the middle as a double spy"
The pressure that comes with laughter is very different from ordinary people.
"Ha. The skinny dead camel is bigger than a horse, so brave !!" Hashimoto felt impatience at the same time he also felt joy.
Class A is quite solid. However, depending on Sakayanagi's behavior, it could have shifted up or down. When it falls to the bottom class, then here is a good chance that Ryuuen classes will win.
Of course, it's a reasonable decision if you spit it out there.
That's why Hashimoto said points that must be denied.
"Sorry, Ryuuen. I didn't mean to only do it in 2 classes."
"Oh, what do you mean?"
"Yes, although it's a bit early..." Hashimoto took out his cell phone and showed Ryuuen's display screen. Proving him that he isn't recording, but making a phone call.
In short call times.
Ryuuen immediately knew that the other side was waiting for a call from Hashimoto.
"Come here, come where I have told you before." Briefly notifies the other party then end the call.
"Who do you think he is? Ryuuen."
"I have no idea..."
"That's Ayanokouji ..."
"Ayanokouji ...? Ah, for a moment I thought who it would be." The name Hashimoto mentioned didn't make Ryuuen panic. If he is shocked ... Hashimoto plans to get some information.
But ... Too fast to give up, he will persistently pursue him.
"Do you know what is the reason for me to call Ayanokouji to this place?"
Ryuuen who clearly answered ..., then continued ...
"Is he really the person you are calling to this place ...? It doesn't look like that to me ..." Traps that are easy to set up ... Can also be easily rearranged.
"Geez ... It seems impossible to lie half-heatedly huh..."
Hashimoto hoped that Ryuuen would react differently than usual by mentioning Ayanokouji's name. But Ryuuen seemed to show a rather problematic attitude when the name was mentioned.
"What are you talking about, huh...? Did you do something behind ... Hashimoto?" Hashimoto was interested in Ayanokouji, on the contrary, he could be suspected of something about it. Even so, Hashimoto never removed Ayanokouji's distrust of Ryuuen.
That was because he did not think that Ryuuen who liked to act like a King could simply retreat against Ishizaki and the others. Ayanokouji's shadow flashed from Sakayanagi's series of actions.
"The one I'm calling to this place is ..." Footsteps approach the second floor toilet.
Then a male student appeared.
"Aa. Looks like you called out an attractive man again ... Hashimoto." What appeared in front of Ryuuen and Hashimoto was Kanzaki Ryuuji. Three people who don't usually see each other are gathering.
"He really wants to see you anyway. I decided to bridge it."
"So? What are the rewards?"
"Isn't that obvious ... Namely the connection with class B."
"Sakayanagi is targeting Ichinose. With the catalyst they are enemies. Do you think he will accept it?"
"He will accept it ... Right... Kanzaki ..."
"I don't trust you Hashimoto ..., but I think you deserve to be used."
"That's what he said ..."
If he shares the same interests, Hashimoto will ally with Kanzaki.
Then ... Hashimoto put his hand on Kanzaki's shoulder while laughing out loud.
"For my sake ... This person will listen to what I say knows ..."
"I see ... So that's what you mean by not ending up with only 2 classes."
Until now, Hashimoto had only been interested in Ryuuen's class. But as soon as Ryuuen chose to retreat ... That made him expand his view.
"Yes ... I intend to do the same with Ayanokouji's class later." No matter which class won, Hashimoto stated that he would act for his own safety.
However, Ryuuen's interest had moved from Hashimoto to Kanzaki.
"You have a topic that won't bore me, right?"
"I don't know what you expect, but I don't have anything to please you."
In front of Ryuuen ..., Kanzaki continued without hesitation. Come to this place ... To talk about himself.
"End of year exams. I just want to talk about that moment."
"Are you going to tell me the opinion about your defeat?"
"Sorry, Ryuuen. I don't think that I lost to you."
At his strong statement Hashimoto whistled.
"You won by force with a dirty strategy. Don't forget that." It was very understandable that Kanzaki wanted to file a complaint. If it's a live battle, he might think he can get more than a draw. But his victory was stolen by Ryuuen's dirty strategy.
"It's worthless ... Did you bother to come here just to say that?" For Ryuuen, there is no such thing as playing clean or dirty. Winning still wins, and Kanzaki's defeat is a result that can never change.
"Anyway ... What is the dirty strategy? Is it because I'm the commander?
"Don't pretend to be stupid. What I mean is about some students who have stomachaches on the day of the exam and also some students who have a mental attack."
Hashimoto, who did not know the details of the exam... Happily applauded.
"No wonder he was angry. You really did stand out, huh... Ryuuen."
"I mean to say that such devious actions will not work again for Class B in the future."
"Ha ... Ha ... Ha ... Do you think Ichinose can prevent it? Or will you cry at school?"
"No, that's not possible."
Kanzaki immediately denied. Because it's not something a good person like Ichinose can do.
"Then ... Who can prevent it?"
Towards Kanzaki's unwavering attitude, Ryuuen had two thoughts.
Is he just bluffing ... Or maybe ...
"What can Ichinose followers like you can do?"
He took steps to find it. To find out the meaning of Kanzaki's words.
"During this one year ... It's true that I only stood beside Ichinose as her supporter. However, it was because on the first day of entering this school, I assessed Ichinose that she was a person who could show superior leadership and was able to form team strength, good compared to other class students. Trust in that is still unshakeable, but she also has great weaknesses with her lack of ability to avoid critical situations or readiness to leave a weak person in an emergency. "
"Hoo ... I thought this would be a boring conversation, I didn't expect it to be quite interesting. I thought the class B contained students who is holding hands to make a good relationship, Apparently there were students ... Who has such thoughts... "
However, Ryuuen immediately refused.
"I don't need it if it's just talking ... Dogs can do it if it's just barking."
"If so ... You just try ..., with that I will prove it."
Hashimoto, who collaborated with Kanzaki only to make connections with class B, slightly changed his evaluation of Kanzaki. It was possible that Kanzaki could do more than he thought.
"Okay, If that's what you want ... Next I will completely destroy it thoroughly."
"I don't know what dirty act you will use, but unlike Ichinose I will not forgive you. If you don't want to lose in your own field, you should fight honestly and fairly. "
"I hope your class isn't a class like shit ..."
While laughing ... Ryuuen went to the toilet. Hashimoto followed after.
"Interesting, isn't it...? If there's something else ... You can consult me again, Kanzaki..." Hashimoto originally thought that Kanzaki would go back after the declaration was over, so he left with this sentence.
But Kanzaki approached, and he stood next to Hashimoto. Kanzaki's strong feelings enveloped this place ... Perhaps intending to show intimidation to both of them.
(TLN: Are they lions, piss*ng to mark their territory. LOL)
And after he finished, Kanzaki finally said once more in a strong tone.
"Remember that ... Ryuuen." Saying that, Kanzaki left the toilet one step ahead.
"He ... He ... He ... How terrible ... I am horrified!"
"How will you beat Class B next?"
"I don't know ..." Fooling him, Ryuuen laugh loudly while remembering something completely different. An incident about an hour before the discussion between Hashimoto and Kanzaki began.
