“Finally, it’s that time of year again.”
“These are the days of hell for us… when a new enemy is born.”
“So what shall we do, Arthur?”
We, in jet-black masks and jet-black robes, sigh in front of the whiteboard. On the whiteboard is a flier for a dance party to be held the night after the school festival. There is a legend in our school that if you dance as a representative at the after-festival dance party, you will be united in eternal love. Screw you, why do I have to watch other people make out? Die! And so on.
There was also the betrayal of Mordred, and there were others who had girlfriends, and we are the only three proud members of the RZK organization. Hey, seriously, how can you get a girlfriend? I don’t understand. I mean, there are girls I talk to, but I’m pretty sure they’re not in love with me or anything.
“It’s decided. It doesn’t matter if we fake it. We will represent this dance, and we will prevent the birth of new couples at all costs.”
“You’re right, Arthur! But we don’t have any female friends. What should we do?”
“Sir Tristan. As I recall, you were in the brass band, and I believe you have many female members and friends of the opposite sex.”
“Haha, The king doesn’t understand the human heart. If I could make female friends just by being in a brass band, I wouldn’t be here.”
Tsumada, aka Tristan, smiles sadly. Yes, if it were easy to make female friends, I wouldn’t have any trouble, and I’d be experiencing a normie life without belonging to such an organization.
“What about Sir Gawain? You are a member of the student council, I believe, so can’t we cancel the after-party?”
“Haha, what an interesting joke, Arthur. It’s not like a manga. The student council doesn’t have that kind of authority, they’re all just in it for the internal review, and besides, the student council president is building a harem, I seriously wanted to kill him.”
Perhaps remembering something unpleasant, Nakamura aka Gawain started mumbling “Death to the student council president, death to the student council president”. I seemed to have touched a part of my best friend that I’m not supposed to touch. Well, I heard that he was dumped by a girl in the same student council a while ago. I wondered if there was a girl I was close enough to confess my feelings to, but that’s okay.
“In the meantime, consider making your own take-home strategies.”
Thus ended the roundtable. I’ll just have to do what I can to help. For now, I’ll try to talk to my only female friend.
“I’m sorry, Akasaka-san… will you join me in representing the after-party dance?”
“What, are you serious?”
Woah woah, seriously? I was walking with Okita toward the clubroom during lunch break when I came across a scene where Ajimu was asking a girl to dance with him. Normally, I would have lunch with Beni, but today she’s eating with Eriko. We didn’t even go to school together, and it might be because I got a little too carried away on Halloween. Well, I got my lunch through Eriko and we promised to go home together after school, so I guess it won’t be a big problem, right…?
But still, asking someone to the dance is almost like a confession of love at our school. Because dancing at the after-party is like becoming a couple and declaring that you are going to be together for the rest of your lives. For those who are not in a relationship, it is like a confession, and for couples who are in a relationship, it is like a marriage proposal.
The other girl is a slender, tall, pony-tailed beauty. Why the hell is that guy doing something like challenging the last boss with his initial equipment?
“What great timing… That’s Akasaka-san, the next captain of the volleyball team. And she was even selected as an athlete for the training program, so I’m sure you know about it too.”
“Ah. The archer of the court, right? I’ve heard that the destructive power of her spikes is amazing. I can only imagine him saying stupid things and getting spiked.”
“No… I don’t think so, look at that…”
Okita is right, when I look at Akasaka-san’s face, is she… embarrassed? No way, because that’s Ajimu. The famous guy who can’t read the air. Why is he setting flags on such a beautiful woman?
“Of course, I’m serious! You’re the only one I can ask for this.”
“If you insist… Okay, I’ll go out with you.”
“Really? Akasaka. Thank you!”
Perhaps Akasaka-san’s words made him very happy, or maybe it was because he was too happy that Ajimu struck a gut-punching pose. No way. A successful confession, huh? Akasaka-san’s face is a little downcast, but she looks really happy. She’s cute… well, Beni is cuter, though.
“I… I wish you would call me Rin instead of Akasaka, since our relationship has changed..”
“I’m glad to hear that. With your athleticism, you and I have a good chance of winning. Now we can prevent the birth of normie couples. Thanks, I’ll buy you a beef bowl next time.”
“Huh, what do you mean?”
“So you and I are going to dance and prevent the birth of normie couples, because there are many people who confess their feelings after the dance. We’ll prevent it by winning the dance. Perfect strategy, right? Wait, Akasaka-san’s eyes are scary…”
With a dull thud, Ajimu is writhing in agony as he gets kicked in his crotch. Thank God, our Ajimu is still Ajimu. Everyone is relieved, the last bastion of the RKZ association is not only in appearance.
I was looking at Ajimu when my eyes met with Akasaka-san. It’s kinda awkward…
“Did you see it?”
“Yes, I saw it and heard.”
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to eavesdrop….”
“It’s okay… Okita… um… I wonder if you can give me advice again.”
“Well, I saw it so… Okay, let’s hear your story.”
Apparently, Okita was originally consulted by Akasaka-san about something. The conversation led us to the clubroom of the astronomy club. Isn’t the club room something that is kinda convenient these days?
Proofreader’s Afterword: Apparently Galado changed Anshinin’s name to Ajimu. In case you guys are wondering, it’s now Ajimu. He’s not a new character. I think he forgot to say this in the afterword so I’ll be saying it myself.
