After school on the day the Terminator came.
“Shin-chan, let’s go home.”
Rika and Dahlia-san come to me.
“Yeah, let’s go home. Oh, but…is the train running right now?”
“You’re right. It was snowing so hard.”
We looked out the window.
Yesterday night and morning, there was a heavy snowfall in Tokyo.
They were operating a limited number of trains in the morning, but…
“Oh, no, Shin-chan. The trains seem to have stopped. It says so on the news on the Internet.”
“Oh, dear…I can’t go home if the trains aren’t running.”
It was not only me but also my classmates.
“I’m lucky there are no club activities.” “But how do I get home? By train?” “By walking? Oh no, I don’t want to.”
Amongst her classmates, her ex-girlfriend Imoko smiles triumphantly.
“I’m going home.”
“How are you leaving, Imoko-sama?”
One of her cronies says so.
“Nay, you’re not a queen. You don’t have a noble aura at all! How funny!”
Dahlia-san laughed like a fool.
Imoko glared at me, but I maintained my composure again.
“My maid is going to pick me up in a car.”
Heee… Imoko has a maid at her house, too.
“That’s nice, Imoko-sama.” “Please give me a ride, too!” “Me too!”
Her classmates rushed to her.
If she could drive home, they would want to come along.
“I can’t help it. Well, it’s okay. Our car can hold a lot of people.”
I was surprised to see her looking at me from a few minutes ago.
“If you bow down to me, Ueda-kun and the others can ride in the car with me, too.”
“Huh? What’s with that attitude, it really pisses me off~”
Piki~, and Dahlia-san’s veins appear at her temples.
“Well, well, well. Oh, Imo…Nakatsugawa-san. I’m good.”
Imoko opens her mouth with a “pop”.
“Are you going to walk home in this snow?”
“No. I also asked to be picked up a while ago.”
Imoko is upset, perhaps because she got a different answer than expected.
However, she immediately sniffed.
“Oh, well, I guess we should all go home. Then let’s all go home~!”
Imoko and most of her classmates leave the classroom.
The only ones left are me, Rika, and Dahlia-san.
“I hate her.”
“That’s funny, I hate her too.”
“Rika-tan thinks so, too. She seems to have a bad character. What’s with the bowing? She’s not a princess!”
Rika and Dahlia-san complain.
“Well, let’s go home. Come, I’ll give you guys a ride.”
“Yay ♡ Virgin-kun, you’re so kind~♡ That’s why I love you~♡”
Dahlia-san is sticking to me.
Big, big b****t…! Soft b****t…!
“Oh, I’m sorry! Rika is here, you have a girlfriend, I see!”
With a snap, I move away.
“I’m just kidding~♡ Rika-tan is too angry~♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡.”
“If you take Shin-chan, I’ll get mad even if you’re my best friend.”
“Haha! It’s okay! I love you, Rika~♡ I’m sorry Virgin-kun, but I will never fall in love with you~♡♡ I will never fight Rika-tan, so don’t worry~♡♡♡♡”.
Rika breathes a sigh of relief.
“Yes, there is no way someone as nice as Dahlia-san would like me…what’s the matter?”
Dahlia-san rolled her eyes.
“Na, it’s nothing~♡ Ah, ha ha ha!”
Daria-san says in an impatient tone.
What’s wrong? Her face seemed awfully red…
After a little while.
We went outside.
It was snowing heavily.
“Wow…it looks like I’m stepping on potato starch”
Rika stepped on the snow and said, “Kyukyuu.”
“I mean this. Cars are jammed up too, you know? With all this snow.”
“Oh, by the way…”
Near the school gate, Imoko was yelling with her phone in her hand.
“What do you mean you can’t pick me up?”
“Oh, you see~.”
It seems that her sister’s child could not be picked up because of the snow.
“Do something about it! What? Heavy traffic! I don’t know about that! I’ll be in trouble if you don’t come!”
Imoko is agitated.
“She was so high and mighty herself, saying she was going to drive everyone home. She’s an idiot.”
“But, Virgin-kun, what are you going to do? You’re going to drive us by car, aren’t you?”
“Hmm, that’s right. I wonder if it’s okay…”
“Why don’t you call him?”
“It’s so loud, isn’t it? What’s that noise?”
“That’s right. Ehhhhhh? What’s that???”
Rika looks up at the sky and raises her voice.
I looked up too and was stunned.
“”Ehh, a helicopter!””
A black helicopter was in the air over the school.
Why! Why a helicopter?
“It’s a helicopter!” “What’s going on?” “What’s going on here?”
Everyone, and even Imoko, are startled by the helicopter’s sudden appearance.
The helicopter lands in the center of the schoolyard.
The door opens and out comes a man in sunglasses and a black suit…
Saburo-san comes down from the helicopter with a smirk on his face.
“I’m here to pick you up!”
I approached Saburo at high speed and punched him in the chest.
“Why the helicopter?”
“Well, because you asked me to pick you up.”
“I thought you’d take the car, you know?”
“But I didn’t say anything about coming by car.”
He nodded his head in puzzlement.
It’s true, but…
“When I said I was going to pick you up, Kogen Kaida-sama lent me his helicopter!”
“What’s the old man of the main house doing?”
“Oh, no. He bought a helicopter. He said it was to take Shinji-kun home and pick him up.”
“What is he doingggg???”
What is that old man doing?
“Well, well, that’s great. It seems like the roads are crowded. Oh, Rika-chan and… friend? Hey!”
Bum-bum-bum! Saburo waved his hand.
“Come on in! I’ll give you a ride!”
Oh well…it can’t be helped now, can it?
“Both of you, get in.”
Stunned, the two get into the helicopter.
“Saburo, can you operate this?”
“No, my brother is driving. See?”
In the driver’s seat sits another man in black, who looks exactly like Saburo.
The one wearing a headset and sunglasses is Saburo’s brother, Jirota-san.
“He can even drive a helicopter.”
“Yes! Brother, you can do anything!”
He can do anything now…
“Wait a minute, Ueda-kun!”
I turned around to see Imoko with an impatient look on her face.
“Oh, you know each other?”
“No, well… go ahead.”
Saburo-san got into the passenger seat.
“What is that helicopter?”
“It’s my helicopter.”
Well, it’s not really my helicopter, it’s more like my private helicopter.
I don’t really want to talk to her.
Let’s go home quickly.
“Oh, you know what? Can you give me a ride? Even if it’s just me!”
Huh? What is she talking about…
“Hey, aren’t you going to send your classmates home? Hey?”
A little distance away, everyone is looking at me.
“What do you mean only you?” “… Eh, you mean to leave us behind?” “Uwaa~”
Oh look, I can hear you.
“You said it yourself, so go ahead and give them a ride. I’m sure the car will come, right?”
Then, Saburo-san comes out of the passenger seat.
“I’m sorry, young lady! This helicopter can only seat five people!”
The pilot, Saburo-san.
Rika, Dahlia-san, and me.
“I’m sorry. Bye.”
“Oh, hey, hey!”
I get into the helicopter without looking back.
“Put on your seat belt!”
“Oh, yeah. And Saburo-san, thank you.”
I give him a thumbs up.
“? You’re welcome!”
Saburo-san, who didn’t seem to understand what I was saying, gave me a thumbs up.
“I mean, can you fly a helicopter in this snow?”
“I’m sure it will be fine! With the super high-performance helicopter that Kogen-sama bought, combined with your skill to do anything, even in a storm, you’ll have a comfortable air ride! Right, bro?”
Jirota gave a thumbs up.
Well, I guess I’ll be okay. At least, I can trust him more safely than Saburo-san.
“Brother, I think we’re all on board!”
The helicopter takes off as Terminator #2 nods his head.
In no time at all, the school is in the distance.
The two sitting in front of us turn to look at each other.
“Ah, haha… I’m sorry, I stood out…”
Then, the two let out a big sigh.
“I knew you were rich, Shin-chan, but to go this far… it’s kind of amazing.”
“Virgin-kun, you are Suneo-kun, aren’t you? Or is it Nakagawa from Kochikame?”
“No, um…well, um…I’m sorry I got you into this.”
Rika and the others shook their heads.
“There’s no need to apologize.”
“That’s right. I mean, we are so lucky to be able to go home by helicopter, aren’t we? Thank you, as expected from Nakagawa-kun”
It seems that Dahlia-san and the others have forgiven me for causing a commotion.
But Nakagawa-kun… stop it, seriously.
