Chapter 25: The Snow Black
Translated and Edited by: ynlucca.
Heavy Yandere vibes on this one
The fun and bubbly atmosphere after the party seemed like a lie. The atmosphere in the student council was heavier than ever.
“… For now, let’s just see if we can find more information on the b*****d who filed this disgusting joke of a lawsuit,” Shirayuki’s words dripped venom.
Sakura took the stack of papers that the teacher left behind, laying them out one by one on the table. Absolute silence reigned over the room, meanwhile.
You could almost cut the tension in the room with a knife.
While Shirayuki’s eyes were ice-cold, they held an ever-growing, unquenchable flame of rage within. I’ve never seen her this angry before.
“I see… It was him, huh…”
The initiator of this whole trial was a second-year class-three student, Sou Abashiri. He’s the vice-president of the Extracurricular Activities Union, and according to the printout description, he was also the ace of the track and field team, holding the Tokyo high school record in the 400-meter run—His strongest event.
“Fufu, hope you can safely show up to the trial… Abashiri-kun.”
Snow white—No, Snow black smiled coldly and inferred something terrible.
“Shirayuki, stop. I’m glad you feel that way, but you need to calm down a bit. You’re showing some of your bad parts, you know?”
“—! I’m sorry, I just got a little hot-headed…” Coming back to her senses, she bowed her head apologetically.
As she did, a sudden gust of the diminishing frozen air of winter blew. Spring was arriving to the student council chambers, and the cherry blossoms outside began to sprout beautifully.
“I don’t know if this is a regular impeachment trial, or a last-ditch attempt to get the vice-president position, but we’re gonna win this! Let’s make the best of this weekend! It’s as they say, three heads think better than one!”
Sakura tried to boost morale, but…
“Guh… Not gonna happen, sorry. I’ve got a part-time job.”
A lot of things happened recently. I’ve been absent due to a cold, and that was right after dealing with a purse-snatcher and a false accusation. Furthermore, I can’t cause any more trouble for my manager and my part-time coworkers.
And above all, if I take too much time off, I won’t be able to pay the bills. My modest part-time job is literally the lifeline of my family, so I can’t just waste my time.
“No, no, no, what are you talking about?! If we lose the trial, you’d be expelled as the vice-president! You could at least just take a day off from your part-time job…”
“… It can’t be helped, then,” Shirayuki interjected.
Despite Sakura’s astonishment, Shirayuki turned her gaze to me. She was silently asking for permission to tell Sakura about my condition.
I nodded slightly in response.
Bankruptcy, my parent’s divorce, my family’s extreme poverty—I have nothing to hide. If anything, the whole neighborhood knows about it, since news of misfortune spread like wildfire.
“Sakura-san, I have something really important to tell you, so will you listen to me seriously?”
“O-Okay… What is it?”
Then, she opened her mouth and spilled heavy words.
About five years ago, my family’s business went bankrupt. Moreover, my parents divorced, my mother ran away, and my father began living a disgraceful life. That’s why I, the eldest son, worked an unhealthy amount of time just to manage the family’s finances.
With all that in mind, I live life in hard mode, at least moderately.
“O-Oh, I didn’t know that… I’m so sorry, I didn’t know…” Sakura’s cowlick dropped down in sadness.
“Don’t sweat it, I don’t mind,” I’m not a man shallow enough to be offended by these things.
After that, Sakura leaned in close to Shirayuki and began to whisper quietly into her ear. “Shirayuki-san… Could it be Kuzuhara-kun is actually a very fine and respectable man?”
“Certainly. He’s often misunderstood, but he’s a tremendously admirable man. I have absolute faith in him. He may as well be the only man.”
“The only man, huh… Wait, Sakura? No way!”
“What do you mean by that~? Y-You misunderstood! That last remark was off-handed, let me correct it! He’s a dear friend, a dear friend to me!”
… Hey, if you’re gonna talk about these things, keep the man in question out of it. I can hear you, you know? I don’t even know how to respond…

……………Well, our MC will mop the floor with this “ikemen”. I mean~~even Shirayuki-chan is no match for him~~……..
I’m guessing the “ikemen”:
-Has a crush on Shirayuki.
-Is a snobbish b*****d and completely unlikeable that believes he deserves the post.
-He doesn’t our MC since he is a loner and poor.
Wel, no matter which reason he has, i’m guessing he also would like to get on Shirayuki’s “good” side……
Maybe he will try to reveal the MC past to make him not likeable for everyone, naturally, this is a very bad move since he is mostly trying to get on Shirayuki’s good side for his own convenience so Shirayuki is going to take some measurements against him even after our MC deals with him.
Fortunately our MC is a genius, be it physically and mentally, so he will mop the floor with that guys sine the student council work pays a lot…i mean, to protect his and Shirayuki’s honor……

I wonder if this will take the edge off Sakura’s and Kuzuhara’s long-standing feud.
