Chapter 28: Questionnaire
“Takahashi-san! I’m so sorry!” (Hiroto)
“It’s fine, I should be the one who’s sorry. By the way… was it okay leaving the girl like that?
Takahashi-san and I left the ticket gate and entered the burger store where I had gone with Aizawa-san. We sat down and I started bowing my head to Takahashi-san.
“Well… we were just talking about club activities.”
“I didn’t know you were acquainted with people from Toko High.” (Takahashi)
I told her what had happened during my hospital stay and we started to tally up the questionnaires that I had given to her.
“Do you know what the special education department does every year at the school festival?”
I looked at the questionnaire for the event and asked Takahashi-san.
“The other day, after Yoshizumi-kun left, I asked a teacher.”
“What did they say?”
“He told me about a quiz contest and recommended reference surveys from previous festivals. It seems they had a stall every now and then. There are a lot of votes for desserts in this survey. They were mostly from girls, though.” (Takahashi)
It would be easy to have the class do desserts. But then again, the Advanced Course had high standards.
“I guess it can’t be helped. The general education and engineering departments seem to have decided what they were going to do with their advertisements.”
When I finished tallying up the results, Takahashi-san voiced her confusion.
“What are we going to do with this…?”
The results were a tie between ‘dessert’ and ‘quiz’.
“I want you to wait until noon to turn it in tomorrow. We’ll all decide in the morning.”
“Okay, I’ll let you know in the morning, and if there are no issues, we’ll decide in the afternoon.”
“You know, I want to have fun while I’m doing it. I want this festival to be a memorable one.”
“What are you planning?”
“Yoichiro, Ando, and Sanada. On the day of the festival, these three will be crucial.”
“Well, if you already have it planned out…as long as it’s not anything weird…”
They said they’ll do anything. They’ll be the ones to make things happen.
After parting ways with Takahashi-san, I took the train home. Toru-san and my mother were eating dinner in the dining room.
“It’s pretty late, did you have club activities today?” (Mother)
“After I showed up at the club, I had to do something for the school festival.”
“You said you were on the organizing committee. I heard you got a cake when you left the hospital. A girl thanked me for your care when her grandmother was discharged.” (Toru)
“I won’t forget her, Toru-san. I told her how delicious the cake was when I met her.”
Also… I haven’t heard back from Mom in a bit. I stopped my chopsticks and looked at her. She was staring at me.
“Hiroto, you never told me about this! When did you meet her?” (Mother)
“What do you mean? We ran into each other in front of the station on the day of the school opening ceremony. She’s from Toko High.”
“I thought you two had become friends and were going to hang out. What’s the girl’s name?” (Mother)
“Umm… Haruka Aizawa.”
“Ha…ru… Yes….I get it. If you see her, be nice to her. I gave birth to a man, and all he does is play baseball! (Mother)
“I also study…”
What is my mother talking about…
I think I’ll talk to Toru-san after all.
After dinner, I was reading a magazine in my room when I received a message, so I opened my phone.
“Hiro, how’s the rehab going? If it’s too hard for you to move, it’s okay to refuse, but would you like to come to the school festival?”
It was from Ko-chan, a kind person who taught me baseball and was like a brother to me.
“Is it in Toko High? It’s on a different schedule from Saijo High’s festival, so I think I’ll be able to go.” (Hiroto)
“Nice! Students that aren’t in Toko High can’t get in without an invitation, so I’ll give you one. In fact, I told the guys in the baseball team about Hiro. Everyone is interested and wants to meet you! I think the school festival was on good timing, since I wanted to catch up on things with you as well.” (Saito)
Ko-chan invited me to go to the school festival of Toko High. It was before the festival at Saijo, so it was a good way to see what it was like. We decided on a date to meet up in order to receive the invitation tickets.
TLN: Yike… sorry I got into my lazy habits and almost died for another 4 months. I can’t promise daily chapters, but I’ll try my best to pump out a few chapters a week.
