It’s July, and the day of the ball game is upon us.
It’s an event I hate.
I can do simple sports such as running and jumping, but when it comes to ball games, I can’t do them at all.
Baseball, tennis, and other games that require an object are the worst. I move so badly that I even laugh at myself.
I was not allowed to participate in the ball games of the club I belonged to.
Therefore, there is not much of a difference in ability between the homecoming club and the athletic club,…….
The athletic people are basically good at whatever they are asked to do.
I am always on the short end of the stick because I’m just a liability.
This year I’m going to play soccer, but it will be an embarrassing experience for me. It’s impossible for me to handle the ball with just my legs. That’s almost like a juggler’s act.
“Hey! Show me something cool!”
“Yagami! Do a hat trick from offside and make a volley!”
“Just kick him and take the ball!”
What’s worse is the presence of these cheerleaders.
It’s not just Shino and Kitahara, but dozens of other students as well.
It was almost like a public execution to expose their hapless appearance in front of that many people.
“Haa, ……, this is going to get ragged on later, …….”
I went into the game in a gloomy mood, but an unexpected result was waiting for me.
“Nice save! Yagami!”
I punched away the shot that came within the frame.
Yes, I’m a keeper.
I’ve been assigned the position because I’m a boxer and I seem to have good dynamic vision.
“Yeah, I can see the ball better than I thought, not bad for a keeper.”
I can’t pass, dribble, or trap at all, but a keeper who can use his hands is no problem. I think I can do pretty well with this.
Our defender fouled the keeper, resulting in a penalty kick.
Even though I’m an amateur, I know the basic rules of penalty kicks.
Even if I can’ t stop it, I shouldn’t be angry.
Pee! The whistle sounded to start the kick.
I looked at the kicker’s foot.
–Pii! It’s a little like boxing.
The way he stepped, I might be able to predict where he would fly.
“This way, ……!?”
I flew to the predicted course.
The ball hit me in the stomach, not my hand.
It hurt like hell, but I stopped it! Not bad!
“Ohhhh! Nice work, Yagami!”
“Senpai! That was so cool!”
Cheers came from inside and outside the field.
I don’t know how much of an impact my save had, but my class, 2nd year D, had won.
I visit Himari’s hospital room to tell her about it.
However, it seems that Shino beat me to it.
” ─ That’s why Senpai’s class won, huh?
Shino, sitting on a chair, is talking to Himari.
“Do we think alike?”
I sit down next to Shino.
Himari still does not respond to anything.
I told her about Shino’s freedom and my trip to Hokkaido, but she still didn’t respond.
She had been paying attention to Shino, so I thought it might be possible.
“I wondered if Himari had heard us.”
“I think she has heard us. –Yes! Let’s talk about it.”
What? All I know is that it’s a bad idea.
“…… I slept in the same bed as senpai, Himari-chan.”
Shino sticks out her tongue.
I looked into Himari’s face.
“She has wrinkles between her eyes. ……!
“It’s true! Himari’s mad at me! –Sensei! Sensei!”
Shino hurriedly ran out of the hospital room.
It had been over a month since she had been in a vegetative state.
It was the first time Himari had shown any reaction.
The next day, she and Sakurako-sensei came to visit Himari.
“Himari. I’ve had adult kisses with Yagami-kun. We even slept together.”
Himari’s brow wrinkles up again. It was a great success.
“The most stimulating thing is jealousy. That’s just like her.”
Sensei laughed and said, “Haha.”
That’s right. I should have told her about this earlier.
“Yagami, why don’t you kiss me here? It should be quite stimulating.”
This is the worst. How can you say such a thing with an unconcerned face, Sensei?
I make a difficult face.
“…… Just kidding. But look.”
Himari is biting her teeth together.
Oh! There’s a new reaction!
“Have you tried kissing Himari, Yagami-kun?”
“No, I haven’t, but ……”
Sensei’s gaze is serious. She sincerely hoped that her sister would recover.
Then I’ll let you go without reservation! If a kiss will make her feel better, I’ll give her as much as she wants!
I kissed Himari lightly.
This would be my first kiss with her. I was a little sad about that.
“Nn….. she …… smiled ……?”
Himari’s expression seemed to smile a little, though it wasn’t quite a smile.
“Jealousy is a bigger reaction than …… Yagami-kun, I knew you’d want to–“
“Negative emotions may have some negative effects.”
I nailed it before the choice was made. It seems to be safe.
“So, shall we get going, Sensei?”
I took Sensei to the hospital’s motorcycle parking lot.
I handed her my helmet and we both got on the bike.
And instead of heading home, we headed for the beach.
“Yagami, I want to go to the beach.”
That’s what my teacher said to me out of the blue this morning.
She didn’t have any particular reason, she just wanted to have fun.
The choice was made, and I had no choice but to go.
However, a student and a teacher being alone together in a swimsuit is not good for many reasons.
I looked for a deserted beach a little farther away.
” Sensei, we’re here.”
“Nice. The beach is beautiful.”
We laid out our seats in the shade of the rocks and set our bags down.
We couldn’t carry parasols on the bike.
Sensei started to take off her clothes right in front of me.
