  1. Part 2
  2.  
  3. Even though we disbanded, Ichinose remained in that place for a while.
  4.  
  5. Defeat and cancel the partnership. I think she just wants to think of various things in her head. Therefore, we decided to return first.
  6.  
  7. Shortly before going down the stairs ...
  8.  
  9. "Wait a minute ..." I, who had just left the cafe at Keyaki Mall, was called from behind by Horikita. Horikita stopped when I looked back.
  10.  
  11. "Without having to look back there is something I want to ask." I accept that request.
  12.  
  13. With that serious tone, I decided not to look back as a sign of agreement.
  14.  
  15. "What's up suddenly ...?"
  16.  
  17. "What suddenly? Isn't there something for you to apologize to me?" An angry voice came from behind.
  18.  
  19. "I don't know what you are talking about." Even though I tried to ignore it, without a doubt Horikita spoke directly to the point.
  20.  
  21. "Are you the one making arrangements for Ichinose-san's Class B so we can fight Class A?"
  22.  
  23. "That's the thing."
  24.  
  25. "If I didn't cooperate with you at that time, wouldn't things become Troublesome? "
  26.  
  27. " But you cooperated flawlessly."
  28.  
  29. "That's ... Because I think it will be troublesome later. Can you explain it?"
  30.  
  31. "Ichinose said it already, Kaneda won the lottery and chose to fight class B. In other words, what I did behind would not change the outcome."
  32.  
  33. "What I want to hear is ... Why did you decide to fight Class A without permission?."
  34.  
  35. "I judge because that's the biggest chance we can win."
  36.  
  37. "Thinking about it ... Isn't it still better to fight the Kaneda-kun and Ryuuen-kun classes?"
  38.  
  39. "There's a high chance that it will be done in the same way as Class B. At least only Sudo and Horikita can be used."
  40.  
  41. "That's just the opinion of the results that have already taken place. At that time there was no mistaking that class D had to be opposed."
  42.  
  43. One step ... I can understand the distance from the sound that is approaching here. Even so, she didn't get too close.
  44.  
  45. "Is what I'm saying wrong?"
  46.  
  47. "No. Of course, fighting with Class A is the biggest loss. I don't deny it."
  48.  
  49. "I'll leave the problem, why are you ignoring my warnings. But why does it have to be Class A?" Even though it was decided that it was an assessment of myself, with just that point she wouldn't accept it...
  50.  
  51. "Why do you think? Why do I have to make arrangements like that ... Can you know that?"
  52.  
  53. I'm trying to ask ... a question that can't be answered.
  54.  
  55. A question that cannot be answered by people who do not know about my relationship with Sakayanagi, also the cause and effect of Whiteroom.
  56.  
  57. "If you think with materials that can be used for reasoning ... You can only deduce the answer from the phrase [having the greatest chance of winning] that you said. So why should class B and class D be excluded? First of all, class B There is no doubt that it can be ruled out. "
  58.  
  59. There was no need to bother making arrangements, there was an agreement with Class B. Until the agreement was no longer available, I considered it unlikely that Ichinose would come against us.
  60.  
  61. "The problem is class D. It was an opponent who was definitely chosen without hesitation. Even class B who had fought against him was completely defeated. That was because of the tactics that Ryuuen used. I, also, didn't know what would happen if fighting in a situation. The same one."
  62.  
  63. The possibility of becoming evenly matched or there may be a loss cannot be ruled out.
  64.  
  65. "Everyone thinks class D is an easy opponent, that's why you feel unpleasant feelings."
  66.  
  67. Maybe that's the maximum conclusion she can think of.
  68.  
  69. "Have you predicted that Ryuuen will appear or what event he will choose?"
  70.  
  71. "Maybe so ... That's why I tried to sacrifice class B."
  72.  
  73. "Even if what you say is true, you should consult me."
  74.  
  75. "That's right ..." I accept without denying it.
  76.  
  77. There is no reason for me to move along.
  78.  
  79. "But ... Is that really the reason?"
  80.  
  81. "And what does that mean ?"
  82.  
  83. "During class voting, you get a lot of votes from class A and get first place. Then you can get protection points. You bet on the dropout to fight Class A as a commander. Is this just a coincidence? As if, Like you and Sakayanagi-san conspiring together. "
  84.  
  85. Although the words she just mentioned also include pure accident. However, she has started to notice my relationship with Sakayanagi and her background.
  86.  
  87. "Forget it ... It's ridiculous to say so. The most important thing is that there is no evidence."
  88.  
  89. Saying that ... Horikita withdrew her statement.
  90.  
  91. "I want to hear your thoughts again. You intend to go to class A right ...?"
  92.  
  93. "I said that before ..."
  94.  
  95. "Yes, but I don't know whether that is true or not. From the start of the school entrance ceremony until recently, as far as I know, you are very reluctant to move up the class."
  96.  
  97. "People grow. Even you grow up, I feel like I misread you at the entrance ceremony. Just like that."
  98.  
  99. Actually, I started to think of a higher class, but I wasn't surprised if she couldn't believe it. Mainly because I'm not cooperating with Horikita. From the point of view of others, it is not surprising that I am reflected as a frightening presence.
  100.  
  101. "Yeah, people will grow ... Perceptions will change."
  102.  
  103. Maybe she still had some dissatisfaction, but little by little Horikita convinced herself.
  104.  
  105. But it seems like this is not the end of the conversation.
  106.  
  107. "Our class has grown. There is a real feeling that it will get stronger. But that is not enough. Your cooperation is very necessary to be able to advance to class A."
  108.  
  109. "In other words?"
  110.  
  111. "So far you have been half-hearted in both learning and exercising. It's true you didn't pull your feet in an average position, but that doesn't contribute."
  112.  
  113. (TLN: the word pulling foot here means to be a burden or sabotage like Kushida.)
  114.  
  115. That's a painful statement in the ear. It is true that contributions that are clearly visible are almost non-existent.
  116.  
  117. "I wonder if you can let go of such ties? From now on you will do everything you can. That should be proof that you are willing to go to class A." This is neither a threat nor a request.
  118.  
  119. It's what she say's to test my thoughts. Of course, this prickly way of speaking is understandable.
  120.  
  121. "Rejected."
  122.  
  123. "As expected"
  124.  
  125. (Yappari)
  126.  
  127. Instead of being surprised. She laughed when she heard that.
  128.  
  129. "You can only say it. You don't mean to help me get into Class A."
  130.  
  131. "At least the current condition."
  132.  
  133. The tit-for-tat was relatively general, and I retaliated against Horikita.
  134.  
  135. It took her a little time to process the meaning of the word.
  136.  
  137. "Eh ...? Current conditions?"
  138.  
  139. Cooperation from me that she thought she would never get.
  140.  
  141. But I think I can make some compromises now.
  142.  
  143. "I also have a reason to accumulate in a year. If I suddenly go all out right after the spring break, let alone classmates, the whole school year ... No, the whole school will be rumored. I want to avoid this situation as much as possible. "
  144.  
  145. "I admit that you are indeed extraordinary. But you value yourself too high huh ... From the perspective of study alone, classmates either me or Yukkimura-kun or from other classes Ichinose-san and Sakayanagi-san. There are many other students ranked above. I wonder if you are as good as they are? "
  146.  
  147. It was not a story that could come in and be suddenly accepted, said Horikita in surprise.
  148.  
  149. "Of course, there is a temporary gap, which will attract too much attention, As long as you stabilize your grades at the top level of 10% to 20% in the class, it should be accepted quickly. After all it is not unusual for students to improve their grades drastically in a short amount of time. "
  150.  
  151. Horikita's thought seems to end with a conclusion like that.
  152.  
  153. If the measurements were accurate, it would have ended there. But if it's not accurate, it won't end there.
  154.  
  155. "Sorry Horikita ..., but I don't think anyone in the same school year can compete against me."
  156.  
  157. Unless there are students who have the potential to grow, Also who are not serious and do not show their skills.
  158.  
  159. "You can say it ... To the point that I'm surprised by your big talk." Unable to accept it, Horikita objected to it.
  160.  
  161. "Just because my brother recognizes you ... That won't be proof. You haven't even been able to show clearly once how amazing you are to me."
  162.  
  163. "Daily life is not enough?"
  164.  
  165. "Is there any evidence that you are the best in learning? No, it's not just a matter of learning. To be able to have your big talk recognized, you must be able to win at any point. At least at one event, you lost to Sakayanagi at chess. Of course, I admit it was a level battle that was even harder to believe. But losing was still losing. So how could it be ... You said nothing in the school year could fight you? "
  166.  
  167. "You're free to see that Horikita. My statement might be bluffing."
  168.  
  169. "In the end you ran away like that. You're just a liar who is never serious."
  170.  
  171. "Will you be satisfied if you imprint the scammer?"
  172.  
  173. Horikita returned to silence.
  174.  
  175. If the elimination of anger can satisfy her, then this is the end of this story.
  176.  
  177. I took one step down the stairs.
  178.  
  179. "Let me test it." She returned with a strong tone.
  180.  
  181. "What test?"
  182.  
  183. "Your true ability. I can understand to some extent that you are smart and have good motor nerves, but you are not as clear as floating above a cloud. Your abilities really remain unknown." Does she want to test with herself as a benchmark?
  184.  
  185. "I want to know if your abilities are worth hiding."
  186.  
  187. "Are you confident that you can be an accurate benchmark?"
  188.  
  189. "I am very confident that I can get a higher score on a written test than you, and I am sure that I can also win a fight if I fight seriously."
  190.  
  191. Winning right, for one year, Horikita has always been above me in the test scores.
  192.  
  193. Despite the fact that boys have the advantage in terms of speed and strength, but if it's a battle that uses technique, then she fully has the advantage, I can understand what she wants to say. In fact, even though Horikita was in an unhealthy physical condition, she was able to fight well against Ibuki.
  194.  
  195. Also, she should have seen me relent when faced with her brother when I first entered this school. It was an affirmation that she was able to win from me with confidence after calculating it.
  196.  
  197. "Then how do you test it?"
  198.  
  199. "There are so many ways to do it. We can have a written exam in my place or your room." The reason she said there was no need to look back was to avoid negotiations other than my voice.
  200.  
  201. Because only by eye contact, can read various kinds of emotions. She considered that the position was not in her favor.
  202.  
  203. She was wary of the only psychological warfare she did not want to wage.
  204.  
  205. "It's okay for me to accept it, but it's just a one-sided story. There's no benefit for me."
  206.  
  207. "Is this a matter of profit and loss? You hid your abilities and kept it a secret from me. If you don't accept it here, I can forcefully drag it out now? As you have lately been attracting too much attention ..., isn't it difficult for you to fool it? ?"
  208.  
  209. That is very weak to be a threat. However Horikita will not spread it because it will harm the future. However, given Horikita's growth, this may be a line of compromise.
  210.  
  211. Horikita calmly waited for an answer from my long thoughts.
  212.  
  213. "Let's do this. In the written exam in April, only one subject would be decided beforehand and compete for the highest score. Even if I got 100, I can also say that I have desperately tutored this subject."
  214.  
  215. If other subjects don't have high grades, then this is a good reason.
  216.  
  217. "It's a bit weak to measure your ability, but ... I wonder if it's okay to fight in an official place ...?"
  218.  
  219. "At least I think after you will lose later. If I want to raise all the values ​​of my subjects in the future, then it is necessary to make such a foundation."
  220.  
  221. "Okay ... I'll follow your idea. But how do you decide which subjects to test?"
  222.  
  223. "Of course you can choose whichever one you like, about the time I leave it to you too. Then, You can tell me the subjects that were tested on the official test day. It doesn't matter if you tell it to me before the test will take place."
  224.  
  225. "I see ... So you intend to win without notice, that is the minimum requirement to study evenly. That means you can get a certain level of ability with just one subject."
  226.  
  227. In this way, Horikita can be convinced to a certain extent.
  228.  
  229. "If I win, then I will judge that your abilities are not that much, and after that, I want you to do everything you can, it's okay right ...?"
  230.  
  231. "Yes ... But if I win, you will grant me one wish."
  232.  
  233. "That's true, if it's just one side, it's not fair. What do you want?"
  234.  
  235. "I don't know ... I will think about what I want."
  236.  
  237. "Isn't that unfair. If I agree here, then I might be told to do things that don't make sense."
  238.  
  239. "Are you worried that you will lose later ...? I thought you were confident in your proposal."
  240.  
  241. " Can you really say that ?"
  242.  
  243. "There's no need to force yourself. If you don't have confidence, it doesn't matter if you win this game as if it didn't exist. "
  244.  
  245. If I say that, Horikita can no longer back down.
  246.  
  247. "Okay ... If I lose, I will accept whatever your requirements are. Is it okay like this?"
  248.  
  249. "That's enough. Alright, it's been decided."
  250.  
  251. Thus, in April, a written exam battle with Horikita was decided. Horikita stood beside me as she stepped forward.
  252.  
  253. Then, she went down the stairs one step ahead of me.
  254.  
  255. "I look forward to it. Direct confrontation with you."
  256.  
  257. Of course ... Horikita will probably take all the steps necessary to challenge the exam.
  258.  
  259. Well ... For me, I just act as usual. I decided to remain standing there until Horikita's back was no longer visible.
  260.  
  261. "Now ... What should I do after this?" Initially I intended to go straight home, but I changed my mind.
  262.  
  263. I'm a little worried about Ichinose's condition.
  264.  
  265. She might have returned home. What is she thinking right now huh?
  266.  
  267. When I thought about that, I realized that there was a man who was staring at me. Looks like it's not a coincidence that our eyes meet.
  268.  
  269. As if invited by his gaze, I descended the stairs.
