- Chapter 4 Part 5 - Answer The Angular Speed Of Love On A Straight Line (5)
It was 16:45. The slapstick Fuyo Festival was finally over in fifteen minutes.
The time for the game to end was approaching. But both Nagisa and I were able to get all our memories back.
Everything went well, and I was relieved. I had my daily life back, my memories back, my feet on the ground, and now…All I had to do was to confess my love to Nagisa once again.
After saying a lot of things like “I love you” and “I like you,” I wanted to tell her that I want to go out with her.
I have already decided on the timing. When we would be watching the fireworks at the party.
It doesn’t matter if we don’t have a special seat. Our special seat was the one next to each other. If Nagisa thought so too, I would be very happy.
“Nagisa, can I have a word?”
I called out to Nagisa from the side as she threw the ball as hard as she could. She has been throwing many balls since the beginning, and this was the last one, but she hasn’t hit the target even once. It was a strange thing for such a big board.
“What is it, Suguru-senpai? If you’re giving advice, you’re late!”
“I’m sorry. But let’s try learn a little. You should relax your shoulders more. Don’t aim with your fingertips, use your whole body.”
Nagisa, half in doubt, followed my instruction and swung her right arm out. Then she hit the ball on both boards at the same time.
“Ah! I did it! I did it!”
“That’s great. Now you’ve managed to get a stamp.”
I wondered if Aogashima-san had already stamped it. I wonder if she got her memory of me back. If so, Nagisa’s last stamp would be the last one, and the absurd Remember Rally will be over.
“Look, come here, Suguru-senpai. We should both hold and press it together.”
Seeing Nagisa’s smile as she beckoned me to her, I was convinced.
I still really love her.
Of course, there was no guarantee that I could stay with her forever. That was exactly why. That was why we were going to seriously confront our feelings for each other for a long time to come. We would fight a lot but I would hold her tight for that amount of time.
Borrowing a stamp from a boy with a round-cropped head who looked like a baseball player, we put our hands on top of each other’s and stamped Nagisa’s stamp book strongly and indelibly, as if swearing an oath. Perhaps this would be the end of the game. Come to think of it, what happens when the game was over? There should be an announcement of the results and all that…Would Ocupido show up again, and we would be summoned again?
Just as this question came to mind, my pocket shook. It was a phone call.
Who could it be, at a time like this? Or was this the call to end the game?
I took out my phone, and the caller was──Kuroiwa Aika.
『—Hey Shirase. Please, help me.』
What reached my eardrums the moment I picked up the phone was her exhausted voice. I could not immediately understand what she was saying.
“What do you mean, ‘Help me’? I don’t know what’s going on.”
『Yuno, Yuno went to the rooftop with the last stamp—』
I looked up to the rooftop and sure enough, there was Aogashima-san looking over the fence at the courtyard. Then, as if by some miracle, or as if by fate, our eyes met.
I thought Aogashima Yuno was smiling.
She seemed to be holding something in her hand. I don’t know. But it must be, as Kuroiwa said, the last stamp that contained her memories of me.
The fact that the game was not over meant that she had not yet put the stamp on it. I understood that. However, the roof…Why would she go there?
『Yuno, looked like she was going to throw away the stamp!』
Why would she do that? She had said she never wanted to forget.
Even if I shouted, there was no way she could hear me high up in the sky through all this noise.
“Kuroiwa. You’re heading for the rooftop right now, right?”
『Of course! But I can’t make it in time!』
What should I do? How could I stop Aogashima-san?
For Kuroiwa, who needed me. What should I do?
Even if I shouted, I wouldn’t reach her. I gathered only the gazes of the people around me, but the important person was no longer looking at me. At that moment, a strong wind blew At the same time, confetti was flying wildly from the rooftop.
…What is this? I strained my eyes, but I couldn’t see what it was.
I thought as I followed the fluttering pieces of paper with my eyes. Yes, if she was going to throw away the stamp, I just have to find out where it falls. Then I might be able to go pick it up and somehow persuade her. That was all I could do right now, right here, right now.
Nagisa called my name. With a hopeful look in her eyes that was saying that I could do something.
…Yeah, she was right.
That was not the best I could do. I have to do what only I could do. I looked around the venue. What should I do? How do I stop Aogashima-san? How do I keep her from killing her memories?
I let my train of thought running, and I found the thread that would lead me to the answer.
Can I stop her by doing this?
I have no proof at all. But once I had an idea, the only thing left to do was to cut the cord.
I pulled out my smartphone and made a call right from the history. Please, get me through. With the sound of the call echoing in my eardrums, I glanced at Nagisa.
“If the stamp is thrown, don’t let it out of your sight.”
Before Nagisa could finish nodding, the call connected with the person I was trying to reach.
